Ascreening committee made up of citizen volunteers decided not to begin reviewing applications at its first meeting on July 6, because a majority felt the council had already decided to hire the interim city manager, Julian Deleon, after he submitted his application July 1.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — With a 3-1 vote on Tuesday, commissioners defeated a motion to give county employees a short-term 3 percent raise to offset the state-mandated retirement contributions tha t began July 1. Commissioner Jack Richie made the motion and voted affirmative to give the employees a 3 percent raise for July, August and September, stating that he felt employees were caugh t off guard by the state mandated contributions to the Florida Retirement System. “I feel strongly that we should reimburse the employees for the three months only,” Richie said. “They have to take the deduction and we have to figure out a way to reimburse them. If you are in the median to low echelon of income, that is a lot of money. On a $30,000 position, that’s $90. Now you have to figure ou t some way to come up with $90 to make the mortgage payment or put food in you r child’s mouth,” Richie said. Gov.

The code enforcement officers will each work a 25-hou r week, splitting the time so one is always available.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING – As part of Fourth of July observances, numerous World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq and Afghanistan veterans were honored and recognized at an event attended by more than 120 participants and co-hosted by The Palms of Sebring, nonprofit Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care, The Palms Home Care and Highlands Regional Medical Center. Peggy Patton, healthcare admissions director at The Palms of Sebring, indicated that “we are privileged to be able to recognize these Highlands County veterans for having sacrificed so much to keep us free and to allow all of us to partake in the freedoms we enjoy here at home that so many simply take for granted.” The veteran recognition was spearheaded under a comprehensive Cornerstone SALUTES! special program designed around meeting unique challenges faced by military families at the endof-life. Part of this program includes a tailor-made pinning ceremony through which veterans are honored and recognized for their service. As part of the proceedings in observance of the Fourth and in honor of the participating veterans, members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4300 provided a 21-gun salute in honor of the fallen. Lou Acuff, RN, manager of clinical liaisons for Cornerstone Hospice, explained that “many factors can influence a veteran’s endof-life experience. Among those factors are age, branch of service, enlisted vs. drafted, rank, combat or POW experience. Some combat veterans who have faced death in wartime are able to integrate their experiences into their lives and then become better equipped emotionally to cope with their own deaths.” Many other veterans who had their lives traumatically changed suffer from social isolation, substance abuse and anxieties. Yet for some veterans, the effects of combat may not surface until they are very sick and facing the end of life. Then they may experience anxiety, agitation and vivid memories of war experiences. Representing the co-sponsoring organizations were Rachel Murphy and Christy Burrows from The Palms Home Care; Steven Nyhan, marketing director for Highlands Regional Medical Center; and from Cornerstone Hospice, Vaughn Hopson, clinical liaison; Jan Russell, facilities coordinator and clinical liaison; Ginny Wolfe, community coordinator; Lou Acuff, RN, manager of clinical liaisons; Autumn Egan, clinical liaison; Ken Geren, pearl team chaplain and Willie Mincey, interfaith chaplain.

Written in Red debuts at Duffers By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID — “Nothing out of the ordinary,” was the report given to the Lake Placid Town Council by John Davis, auditor for Wicks, Brown, Williams & Co. at the meeting on Monday night. Overall, the general fund excess has trended upward over the past five years. “That is a good indicator of financial stability,” Davis said. Additionally, according to Davis, the infrastructure fund and the water fund were bringing in more than they were expending. One area of concern for Davis was the wastewater fund, which has shown a deficit over the past five years when depreciation was included in the figures. “Since 2007, the town has done a better job of tracking the wage expenses, and allocating it properly,” Davis said. In 2008, the town retooled its reuse equipment and there needed to be growth in the usage of the utilities before the fund would be self-supporting. “It will just take time for the customer base to grow,” Davis said. In 2010, the wastewater fund lost almost $60,000, having to draw funds from the water service fund. The sanitation fund netted about $15,000, according to Davis, but another area of concern was the cemetery fund, which lost a little more than $26,000, drawing down the reserves that the fund has. “We sold no plots last month. And overall, more people are finding it cheaper to be cremated,” Town Clerk Arlene Tuck told the council. “We just are not bringing in the revenue we used to.” Davis told the council that the 2010 audit came through with just six items that needed attention. “Late fees for filing with the FRS (Florida Retirement System) amounted to about $629. And those could have been avoided,” Davis said. Other items pointed out by Davis included credit card receipts, and recommended that those receipts be double checked when making the credit card payments. Davis also suggested that the council look closer at their purchase order policy. Davis told the council that of the 34 cash disbursements selected for testing, 24 were handled properly, but the limit set for bidding was at $5,000 and several items came in under barely under that $5,000. There was also no way to currently tell if staff had “shopped around” for the best deal, Davis pointed out. When it came to leasing larger items, Davis suggested that the council approve all financing and leasing agreements by ordinance. Staff had leased a law enforcement vehicle for $26,302, and council should have made the decision instead of staff. Finally, Davis pointed out a few payroll errors, one in particular where an employee was approved for 56 hours of negative sick time which the town could not recover since the employee left.

Monday, however, four members of the council took extreme exception to that characterization. Mayor Sharon Schuler said, “Julian has done more for the city (in the short time he has been interim city manager) than we’ve accomplished in 10 years. That being said, we have to follow through on the process. We should have at least three (final) candidates ... I haven’t made up my mind. There might be another Julian Deleon out there.” She added if that were the case, and Deleon went back to directing the public works department, the city would truly benefit with two people of that caliber on staff. Council member Parke Sutherland was upset that the screening process was called a waste of time. “If members think they are wasting their time, just don’t serve on the committee,” he said, adding that he has not made up his mind, or even seen all the resumes. Deputy mayor Brenda Gray and member Paul Miller both said they too had not made up their minds. Terry Heston was the only council member to not participate in the discussion. One of the members of the committee, Jim Barnard, addressed the council. “The committee had a point,” he said. “Several council members had already made up their minds. Why need (applicant) names if you’ve already decided?” He then challenged the city council to go on the record. “How many members have made up their minds?” he asked. Nobody responded to the question. Throughout the exchange it became clear that Deleon was not the issue — it was the perception of a done deal that rankled. The city council asked the committee to return to work. Continued from page 1A News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY During the regular meeting Mondy night, interim city manager for Avon Park Julian Deleon briefs the city council on the financial difficulties facing the city. ment and millage rates, finance director Renee Green told the council that due to lowered property assessments, the millage rate would have to raised in order to bring in the same amount of revenue as in fiscal year 2010-2011. This the council quickly refused to do, voting to keep the rate of 5.8745 the same for the next year. It is the highest rate in the county. The fire assessment, at $165 per residential property, is already at the maximum allowed and cannot be raised. The projection for 2012, finance director Renee Green said, was that the assessments would only cover 73 percent of the fire department’s costs. In 2009-2010, $30,000 of assessments went uncollected. The city has begun a series of commercial annexations which should significantly improve its financial situation in the next two to five years, council member Terry Heston said. In the meantime, Deleon is looking into the possibility of consolidating the fire and police chief positions to save money. In a related issue, Deleon told the council David Cloud had rejected the fire chief’s contract the city offered him. Cloud went on the record to say he has never been presented a contract to accept or reject. Continued from page 1A Manager search committee asked to proceed in AP Millage rate will stay the same in Avon Park those participating in the Florida Retirement System to contribute from their take-home pay, and according to Richie, many were not prepared for the pay cut. The commissioners decided without much discussion to give back an additional $15,000 that was taken from Emergency Management Workers because of their three-week pay cycle while County Administrator Rick Helms estimated about $200,000 in county savings if no raises were given and j ust $100,000 savings if 3 percent were given to the employees. Chairwoman Barbara Stewart questioned if other constitutional officers would follow suit if the board approved. “We try to go along with what the board decides. It is not good for employee morale to do something different,” said Clerk of Courts Bob Germaine. Commissioner Greg Harris questioned whether the county had the authority to take action about the situation, since the governor directed that employees were to pay into their own retirement. Helms explained that several other jurisdictions, including the town of Lake Placid, had voted to reimburse employees at some level. Lake Placid voted to give back 1.5 percent in a temporary pay raise. Commissioner Don Elwell stated that he could argue both sides of the argument, but wanted to hear from the other constitutional officers before making a decision. Stewart pointed out that this was a decision by the state legislature and the governor, and that employees had since December to plan. “We could discuss the why, there are a number of good reasons, but we have to consider the equity issues,” Stewart added. “We are giving preferential treatment to one group of employees who are part of the retirement system,” Stewart stated. “We have people who make as little as $21,000 and others that make over $100,000. Does someone who makes $110,000 need another 3 percent?” Stewart asked. “When we violate the intent of the law, there is repercussions,” Stewart advised before the vote. Other constitutional officers agreed that they would follow suit with the board, but wanted to take a closer look at how the pay would be distributed. “We would like to see a lump sum based on a percentage,” Sheriff Susan Benton explained. Tax Collector Eric Zwayer pointed out that if the raises were given, the money returned to the board would be reduced from his office. “We did some estimates, and this would cost about $10,000, and we would not be returning that money to the board at the end of the year,” Zwayer said. Even though he seconded Richie’s motion for discussion, Elwell made it clear that he was not voting for the motion because of the current budget issues. “I am hoping that the money we would spend on this could keep jobs in the next budget season,” Elwell said.

It’s the uniqueness of Highlands County that makes one want to see it, and that is where we can do “so much better.” The draw of the 12 Hours of Sebring, the pristine lakes, white sand beaches and our golf courses are all part of what makes up Highlands County, but there are other gems, not talked about as much, that attract thousands each year. Highlands Hammock State Park, Archbold Station, Henscratch Farms all draw people to the county, and make a great case for adding agricultural tourism to our brochures and marketing. The amateur astronomers in Venus working with Dark Skies, those who want to know how a citrus tree is grafted and those who want their picture taken by an orange tree are definitely tourists worth courting, as well. Additionally, add Leavitt’s presentation on the Lake Placid murals, Highlands Little Theater and the Children’s Museum of Highlands and others, and you have a triangle of available resources to draw day trippers and weekenders alike with their discretionary spending. Those three legs – agriculture, sports and arts/cultural tourism – make for a powerful combination to appeal to several different tastes. Cheri Starr and the Heartland Triathlon have the right idea about attracting visitors: spoil them. In business, it’s called a marketing bridge. Atourist sees a brochure about Highlands County and decides to call or come to see, and then someone answers the phone that knows nothing about scuba diving in Lake Denton or the boat races scheduled on Lake Tulane this year. Asuccessful marketing bridge would not only educate on the happenings, but would also include “goodie bags” that include marketing materials as well as coupons or gifts. Anice golf coin marker or club towels. Afree caladium bulb or small sample of wine or jam. Those are all items that would make a person say “I got that when I visited a golf course in Highlands County.” It makes a tangible memory, like the shirts and visors given out at the Heartland Triathlon. Add to that some training on customer service and hospitality and you have an unbeatable combination that is off the beaten path for typical Florida tourism. Make the tourists talk about how well they were treated when they came to Highlands County and they will want to come back to see something else or work in a side trip to a tourist attraction when they come to the races. And, while they are here, they eat and shop and sometimes think, “What a nice place to live.” Using the bed tax to attract tourists through comprehensive brochures is just part o f the equation. Throw in a strong set o f choices with the three-legged approach and some good ‘ol southern hospitality, and you no longer have to worry about someone saying, “There is nothing to do in Highlands County.” Page 4ANews-SunWednesday, July 13, 2011www.newssun.comTODAYSEDITORIAL 2227 U.S. 27 South € Sebring, FL 33870 € 863-385-6155 NEWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. 515editor@newssun.com SCOTT DRESSELEditor Ext. 516scott.dressel@newssun.comDAN HOEHNESports Editor Ext. 528daniel.hoehne@newssun.com ADVERTISINGVICKIE JONESExt. 518vickie.jones@newssun.com CIRCULATIONTONY MCCOWANExt. 522anthony.mccowan@newssun.com BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONExt. 596legals@newssun.com EDITORIAL& OPINION We can do so much better W e can do so much better.” That quote was given to the Highlands County Tourism Board last week by Fred Leavitt. Presidential politics during the summer before the summer before the next election is a lot like spring training baseball. The games are fun to watch, but the scores don’t mean much. Back in the summer of 2007, as the races “heated up,” Rudy Giuliani was the overwhelming favorite among Republicans, with a polling lead of 20 percentage points over his nearest opponent. In second place was a man who wound up spending $21 million to become the Jeopardy question: Who is Fred Thompson? That summer John McCain changed places in the polls with Mitt Romney, but not the way you might imagine. McCain actually dropped from third to fourth. On the Democratic side in July ‘07, Hillary Clinton’s lead over Barack Obama was about 13 percentage points, and the John Edwards campaign had raised $25 million. If only volunteers and contributors had known how much more productive their summers would have been had they just read books and sipped cocktails at the beach. Now, here we are four years later, doing the same dance, with GOPfront-runners Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann. The former Massachusetts governor has raised over $18 million in j ust the last three months, and probably has a greater chance of being the nominee than Giuliani did at this stage four years ago. Supporters say Romney “looks presidential”; detractors say he’s plastic, even phony. More troubling for his candidacy is that Romney’s positions on key issues have changed as often as the summer winds. Bachmann, the Minnesota congresswoman, has basked in positive press since the New Hampshire debate, and is now in a virtual tie with Romney in Iowa. Anative of the state, she’ll do well in next month’s Iowa Straw Poll, further encouraging the hopes of those who take her candidacy seriously. But Bachmann is merely a pretender. She has no chance whatsoever of winning the nomination. She’s playing for position — as the vice presidential candidate, or for a Palin-sized payoff on the lecture and book-plugging circuits. Then there’s Tim Pawlenty, who has been campaigning in Iowa for nearly two years, yet faces possible elimination from the race if he stumbles badly in the Aug. 13 straw poll. Pawlenty was underwhelming in the New Hampshire debate, and his efforts since have been overshadowed by Bachmann’s pizzazz and Romney’s polish. As Pawlenty put it on the stump in Ames: “One of the things that voters in Iowa and across the country want to know is ‘Do you just flap your jaw, or do you have results that you can back up these statements with?’” Pawlenty scored just 6 percent in the Des Moines Register poll — nearly 16 points behind Romney and Bachmann. Pizza exec Herman Cain, who has never held public office, was third with 10 percent. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul had 7 percent each; former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, 4 percent; and former Utah Gov. and ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, 2 percent. Four summers ago, Romney won the Iowa Straw Poll, but then Mike Huckabee won the Iowa Caucus, and John McCain became the GOPnominee. Summer campaigns, it seems, are more valuable for weeding out the weaker candidates than for confirming the eventual standard-bearer. It’s part of the endurance test that has become essential to presidential politics. Plus, the media love it, and the public tolerates it. As the summer of ‘07 ended, Rudy Giuliani’s numbers began to melt. A Romney aide clucked that Giuliani’s huge lead was as real as “Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.” So, is there an actual nominee in this summer’s GOPcrop? Or just a list of future Jeopardy questions? Peter Funt is a writer and public speaker and may be reached at www.CandidCamera.com. Opinions expressed in guest columns are those of the writer and not necessarily those of the News-Sun. Summer flings Candid Thoughts Peter Funt In 1950 a largely unaccomplished lawmaker from Wisconsin, Senator Joe McCarthy, alleged that Commie sympathizers were infiltrating the U.S. Government and Hollywood. “Communist subversion!” was the claim; Red Scare, the aim. Televised hearings were held. Lives were ruined. No evidence of his accusations was found. McCarthyism, as it’s now known, is a blight in American history. On a good day it’s a parable. Otherwise, it’s an embarrassment that a hysteria this dark happened in the glare of national limelight. McCarthyism became deeply unpopular with the American public. Senator McCarthy had a 35 percent approval rating in November of 1954. Amonth later the Senate censured him. Yes, Senator McCarthy — at his lowest point — was TWICE as popular as the 112th Congress, which now boasts a 17 percent approval rating. But this 17 percent proves we are still “united” as a country. Over eight out ten citizens can come together in mutual disdain for the overpaid, underworked body of suit-fillers loitering in our nation’s Capitol. The 111th Congress had the lowest approval rating in two decades. But now, even they can hold their previously most-despised heads up high — they averaged 25 percent. The 112th ran on jobs and the economy, giving President Obama a famed “shellacking.” And with a newfound majority in the House the only thing they’ve done is pass “symbolic votes” making an abortion harder to get. So abortion — a procedure the majority of Americans will never need nor seek out — is what the House is singularly focused on preventing, all under the guise of getting Government out of (some of) our lives. Yes, the GOPhas taken a hard right turn. Cap and trade? Health care insurance mandate? The EPA? Unpaidfor wars? Racking up a huge deficit? All are originally Republican ideas which Republicans are now against. And when I say “now against,” I don’t mean they are now for a more liberal alternative. The GOPis now for nothing. In French it’s called laissez-faire. In English it translates into “let it be” or “lazy.” In American politics it means “a do-nothing Congress none of us approve of.” The House cannot go any further to the right. America’s top 1 percent has twice the net worth of the bottom 80 percent. Add to that — we don’t even ask the ubersuper-rich to pay much in taxes. Bloomberg News/Businessweek put it like this: “It may seem too fantastic to be true, but the top 400 end up paying a lower rate than the next 1,399,600 or so.” And the House passed the Ryan Budget Plan (another symbolic vote), lowering taxes on the top brackets even more, shifting the burden to the rest of us and forcing seniors to “choose” their health care “options.” This is a “plan” that still won’t cut the deficit or balance the budget (but will raise the debt ceiling — hint). The GOPtried to peg President Obama as a radical socialist when he really just turned out to be a moderate pragmatist. So now Congress has to be against everything a moderate pragmatist is for... which ends up meaning their platform is — NOTHING. Republicans like to say this country is right of center, which is akin to saying the average American child is slightly above average. They say this, but then they go way off to the extreme right “cut and run up the deficit” when in the House majority. So if Congress can’t go any further right and their approval rating has never been lower — how about turning in the other direction? The majority of Americans want abortion to be legal. Even more want the rich to have their taxes raised. We all want infrastructure. We all want Americans to have jobs. We all want our seniors to have health care. We want fair laws and reasonable immigration. We tell pollsters, at least, that we are also moderate pragmatists. But somehow we’ve elected a group of do-nothings the know nothings would denounce as dogmatic. The House of Representatives needs to start representing America and not just their rapidly-righter-facing ideology. Pyrrhic victories are not actually victorious for a country with a struggling economy. The iconic illustration of the Great Depression depicts Americans somberly standing in breadlines. The iconic illustration of our Great Recession? It’s going to be GOPcongresspersons on their government-funded Blackberry’s tweeting jabs about the president on taxes, while in recess (of course). Really, who are these 17 percent of Americans who approve of these people?! Tina Dupuy is an award-winning writer and fill-in host at The Young Turks. Tina can be reached at tinadupuy@yahoo.com.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING — Fred Leavitt, president of the Heartland Cultural Alliance, said Thursday the county might be able to secure more bed tax dollars if the tax collector paid close attention to people renting houses and condominiums in addition to those staying in hotels and motels. Visitors like them, Leavitt said, can be easily missed. The bed tax is paid by guests here for six months or less. The funds go to marketing and developing tourist opportunities. “They should be paying the 2 percent bed tax, too,” Leavitt said, adding he thought not all that money was being caught. He added it would be a tough job. Highlands County Tax Collector Eric Zwayer said collecting the bed tax is a difficult job. At the moment, the State of Florida Department of Revenue does it, and enforces the law as well. “We can elect to collect (the tax) locally, but the question is if the benefit is worth the cost,” Zwayer said. He added that in the long run there might not even be a benefit. “We have looked into it, and we would need at least one full-time employee to do the collections. “Then there is the enforcement issue and the auditing that has to be done. We could be paying (at least) $30,00 to $40,000 in salary and benefits. “We predict it would cost more than it was worth.” Zwayer said his office is still looking into the issue. He asks individuals who know of a situation where the bed tax is not being paid to contact the state Department of Revenue.

He is the host o f “Country Fried Home Videos”, and one of the stars — along with Jef f Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy — of “Blue Collar TV” and the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour, the Movie”.

Continued from page 1A nities here. “Sports marketing has helped to put heads in beds,” Leavitt said, “which is a good thing, but we can do much better.” He wants people to think in terms of a two-edged sword, that is being able to slice through the obstacles of economic recovery in more than one direction. Marketing sports should continue, he said, but developing art and cultural opportunities, eco-tourism and even agri-tourism would broaden the county’s appeal as well add to the quality of life for Highlands County residents while significantly boosting the economy. For example, Leavitt said he took an informal survey of merchants in the area. He said that merchants told him it was important to attract more women tourists. Women brought more to the economy because they shopped, while men went about their sports activities without spending much money. For example, he was told, “fishermen bought bait and some gasoline; golfers bought golf balls and ate at Red Lobster.” Cultural tourism has become a worldwide phenomena, Leavitt said. Art and cultural spending has tripled in 12 years, while Florida’s gross state product only doubled. He said according to the Florida Tax Watch Tourism Research Report, 75 percent of visitors to Florida participate in cultural activities, and that other studies have shown cultural tourists spend more and stay longer. Leavitt pointed to Lake Placid as a success story and praised Harriet and Bob Porter for their vision and persistence in bringing murals to the town, founding the Lake Placid Mural Society in 1992 at a time when the town was financially stressed. In 1995, the town received the Florida’s Most Outstanding Rural Community of the Year Award. Today, the mural society estimates more than 20,000 tourists visited Lake Placid year-round in the past two recession years. “Bus tours alone bring in as much as $1,500 daily to local merchants and must be scheduled well in advance,” Leavitt said. In Sebring, both at the Kenilworth Lodge and the Executive Airport, gallery displays with art for sale have attracted a lot of interest. Art has sold during special events, Leavitt said. “We want the public to know the value of art and culture,” he said, adding that not only do they attract tourists, but businesses looking for well-rounded environments in which to locate. His immediate goal, he said, “is drawing people together. That hasn’t happened before. The HCA wants to work with any and everybody. If the county can get behind this, we will all prosper. That’s my mission at this stage in my life. “It’s grueling, but seeing progress makes it all worthwhile. Artists, businesses and government working together will bring this place alive.” The three major municipalities and Venus already provide a foundation on which to build. There are museums, like the Museum of Florida Art and Culture at South Florida Community College, the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum at Highlands Hammock, The Children’s Museum in Sebring and Toby’s Clown Museum in Lake Placid, among others. With its dark skies, Venus is in a position to become a draw for amateur astronomers and the Archbold Biological Center has its new visitors center. Avariety of bus tours — with stops at specified sites, including local restaurants for meals — can be created and marketed over the Internet. For example, the annual agricultural bus tour sells out quickly every year. If groups, museums, and smaller cultural venues like Brewster’s open microphone nights link their Web sites Highlands County could be pulled together, Leavitt said. Best of all, once word gets out about Highlands County’s support of the arts, artists will be drawn here, and with them come galleries, cafes, and musical concerts, Leavitt said.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING – Seeking a respite from the summer heat, daily rains and palm trees of southern Florida, for, you know, the heat, rains and palm trees of Beaufort, SC for the Dixie Boys World Series, the Sebring All-Stars find themselves two steps away after Sunday’s 13-3 win over Frostproof at the Max Long Recreational Complex. Though it was a bit spotty at first and was delayed by that daily rain, the boys in blue duplicated the score of their Saturday win over Vernon. After taking a 3-0 lead in the top of the first, which included J.C. Cobb scoring all the way from second on a wild pitch, Sebring scuffled a bit hanging onto the ball and Frostproof scratched for three to even it up after one. Starting pitcher Jonathan Struck then helped his own cause with a lead-off home run over the left-center field fence in the top of the second, but a clap of thunder, nearby lightning and rains came in and brought the players off the field. After the extended delay, however, Sebring seemed to tighten things up and Frostproof got nary a whiff of another score as Struck went the rest of the way unscathed. The offense then added a run in the third on a Jacob Cram RBI single and erupted for eight in the fifth. Struck Eli White, Hunte r Livingston and Jordan Austin all showed disciplined batting eyes to draw consecutive SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, July 13, 2011 NASCAR This Week4B Courtesy photo Former Sebring football player Zac Morris was a featured guest on Ed Lynchs Sports TalkŽ show on Saturday, July 9. Morris has signed a letter of intent to continue his education and football career at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne. The show airs each Saturday immediately following the Noon News on WWTK 730-AM. The July 16 broadcast will mark the 29th anniversary of Sports TalkŽ and will have a baseball theme as former Avon Park player Drew Reeves and former Green Dragon player Colby Delaney will be featured guests.

Dixie Boys State T ournament Sebring cools Frostproof Sebring13Frostproof3 See SEBRING, Page 3B By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING –The rains held off for a change on Monday, but plenty of thunder could be heard from the bats of the West Seminole All-Stars in their 18-1 win over Lake Placid in the third round of the Dixie Boys State Tournament. After Saturday’s opening-round win over Paxton, the Junior Dragons got the benefit of a Sunday bye. Though, perhaps the day off came back to haunt them, as when it comes to momentum, any lull can be detrimental. “Getting the day off, sometimes it’s a good thing,” head coach D.J. Smiling said. “But sometimes having extra time off leaves you flat, and we seemed to come out flat today.” And perennial power West Seminole is not a team one wants to come out flat against, for while Lake Placid rested up Sunday, they were trouncing their way to a 14-0 win over San Antonio and a 12-1 win over Hardee. That offensive prowess looked to continue Monday as Quentin Davis came up with one on and one out in the top of the first and crushed a fastball well over the center-field fence for a 2-0 lead. But starting pitcher Justin LaRosa worked his way out of it with no further damage. LaRosa then came up with one out in the bottom of the inning and rip a single up the middle, but soon fell victim to a lightningquick pick-off move from West Seminole southpaw Jimmy Hartley, who then struck the next batter out to finish the inning. Astronger second inning saw LaRosa work around a walk and single to record two strike outs and keep West Seminole off the board, but Hartley then established his dominance in retiring the side in order with his combination of a sneaky-quick fastball and knee-buckling curve. Justin Mason came on in relief in the third, and West Seminole started to flex its’ collective muscle, plating six runs on six hits a walk and an error to up the lead to 8-0.

Total square footage of the courses greens prior to the renovation were approximately 55,000, but will now be at a whopping 90,000. Itll be a bit of a doubleedged sword,Ž Harder Hall Country Club Superintendent Bill Davis said. Youll be able to get on the greens more easily, but there will be a lot more three putts too.Ž Harder Hall gears up for August reopening

Lou Gehrig left in the first with a severe case of lumbago, the most serious threat to his streak. He returned for one at-bat the next day. 1943 The first night game in All-Star history, at Philadelphias Shibe Park, went to the American League, 5-3, despite a single, triple and home run by National League center fielder Vince DiMaggio of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The big blow was a three-run homer by Bobby Doerr of the Boston Red Sox, which gave the American League the lead for good. 1954 Pitcher Dean Stone did not retire a batter and received credit for the American Leagues 11-9 All-Star victory at Clevelands Municipal Stadium. Red Schoendienst tried to steal a run for the Natioinal League after Stone was summoned into the game in the eighth inning, but the pitchers throw to the plate nailed the runner for the third out. 1963 Early Wynn, at 43, registered his 300th and last victory, pitching the first five innings of Clevelands 7-4 triumph over the Kansas City As. 1965 The National League took the lead over the American League for the first time since the All-Star series began, winning 6-5 at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minnesota. 1971 Reggie Jacksons mammoth home run off the power generator on the right-field roof at Tiger Stadium highlighted a barrage of six homers three by each team as American League beat the National League 6-4 in the AllStar Game. 1982 The National League registered its eleventh consecutive All-Star victory over the American League with a 4-1 victory at Montreals Olympic Stadium in the first game played outside the United States. Dave Concepcions tworun homer off Dennis Eckersley in the second inning was the deciding hit. 1993 Minnesotas Kirby Puckett homered and doubled to win the MVP award in the American Leagues 9-3 victory in the All-Star Game at Camden Yards in Baltimore.

Cobb then drove in a pair with a single, as did Alex Forde one out later. Cram would reach on an error with two out and Struck ended the scoring with a double before setting Frostproof down for the win. “It was a little ugly in the first,” head coach Israel Gomez said. “But (Struck) put a great swing on his home run and then settled in and pitched a great game.” The Sunday win gave Sebring a day off Monday to rest up and survey the competition before heading back into action Tuesday, where they were to face West Seminole, a team that has thus far outscored its’opponents by a 44-2 total. Continued from 1B Sebring moves a step closer By BRIAN MAHONEY Associated PressDeron Williams’decision to play in Turkey if the lockout remains could open the door for other NBAstars. Unless FIBAshuts it. Basketball’s governing body has to sign off on these deals for players under contract, and the NBAPlayers’ Association expects that it will. But what if it doesn’t? “I don’t think that’s going to be an easy transaction, to be honest with you,” said agent Roger Montgomery, whose client Sonny Weems signed in Lithuania last week after playing last season with the Toronto Raptors. Weems, whose contract had expired, agreed to a oneyear contract without an optout clause, meaning he’s actually committed to spending the season in Europe. But the deal that Williams would get from Besiktas of Turkey — and that any toplevel NBAplayer would demand — would allow him to run right back to the NBA once the lockout ends. So in approving the deals, FIBAwould potentially be giving away valued jobs to players who have no intention of keeping them, diminishing the overseas product for the sake of perhaps a few games with bigger names. The NBAunion’s belief is that FIBAwould not stand in the way of players whose contracts have been suspended because of the lockout seeking employment elsewhere. But FIBAneeds a little more time to determine that. Aspokesman for the organization said it is working on a statement to be sent to its membership and clubs to clarify the legal situation, which will likely be ready early this week. If FIBAsays it will offer letters of clearance, the Williams route becomes available for any other NBA players who want to play, not stay, in Europe. Kobe Bryant, Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade were among the players who reportedly would be open to playing overseas. But don’t plan on that exodus just yet. One agent said he “wouldn’t be shocked” if FIBA rejects the kind of contract they’d be seeking and wondered if many European teams would even offer them. Of course, it’s unclear how many teams could even afford to. With the risk of injury that could threaten their NBA earnings, few top players would consider the move without the guarantee of top dollars. And in a weakened European economy that likely rules out the elite Greek clubs, and a history of headaches with certain teams when it comes to actually receiving payment, top talent may not have many places to go. “There’s not a lot of teams over there that could pay the salary of what a rotational NBAplayer would earn,” agent Mark Bartelstein said last week. “I wouldn’t say it’s a vibrant market for NBA rotational-caliber players.” While seeing its players getting jobs overseas could potentially threaten owners at the bargaining table, the NBAhas shaken off the European challenge before and likely would again. Many U.S. Olympians were asked if they would consider the option in 2008 after Josh Childress left the Atlanta Hawks for Greek club Olympiakos and other lesser players followed, agreeing they would have to listen for a deal that would offer them $40 million a year, tax free. But NBACommissioner David Stern quickly played down the idea, saying “the system will not support it,” and that was before the economy tumbled. So while the Williams deal was interesting, deals for ones like Weems are far more likely. “That’s going to be difficult at best, especially for your A-tier player,” Montgomery said.

Four more came across in the fourth and six in the fifth, while LaRosa’s firstinning single would wind up being Lake Placid’s lone hit of the game. They did, however, manufacture a run in the bottom of the fifth when Scott Colley and Matt Thompson drew walks off reliever Steven Wells. Both runners moved up on a wild pitch, and when Thompson seemed to wander too far off second and drew a throw from catcher Josh Kelly, Colley came in on what was actually a double steal. “We got the one there at the end,” Smiling said. “But that was way too little, way too late. “It’s tough, (West Seminole) has a big area to draw from, with four or five high schools, compared to our one,” he continued. “We came out flat and at times really didn’t play well. But we’re still alive and just have to work our way back.” The loss dropped Lake Placid into the consolation bracket of the double elimination format and set up a Tuesday afternoon contes t against Sumter. West Seminole, meanwhile, moved along in the winner’s bracket and was set to face Sebring Tuesday evening. In action on the other side of the bracket, West Volusia ended a drought agains t rival Spring Hill with a 6-1 win and was to face Wewa, which had worked its’way back from an opening round loss with a win over Liberty County, Tuesday. Continued from 1B LP needs to work its way back Associated PressMIAMI — KFC seems to be checking Dwyane Wade’s posts on Twitter. The fried chicken chain says it will make donation to its own scholarship fund in the Miami Heat guard’s name — if he serves as an honorary captain at a drive-thru window. Acompany spokeswoman says the donation offer is $250,000. KFC says it made the offer in response to one of Wade’s tweets when the NBAlockout began, in which he playfully asked if anyone was hiring. Wade worked at KFC before his NBAdays. KFC U.S. general manager John Cywinski says that the company has always been proud to call Wade a former employee and looks to hire people with his skills like “teamwork and the ability to make buckets in a hurry.” KFC offers Wade a chance to make some buckets Associated PressFLORENCE, Ala. — Janoris Jenkins wasn’t ready to aim for a head start on a professional career even after being faced with the choice for a second time. The former Florida cornerback, who had opted to remain in college instead of skipping his senior season to enter the NFLdraft, made the same decision in June after coach Will Muschamp kicked him off the team following Jenkins’second drug arrest in four months and third of his college career. Jenkins said the supplemental draft “wasn’t really tempting to me” and that those around him were advising him to find another school. “It’s not all about the money,” he told The TimesDaily of Florence in a story Monday. “I went three years without money at the University of Florida, so why can’t I do it another year? I’m not in a rush to get the money. I just wanted to come back and rebuild my image.” Jenkins was charged with marijuana possession in April, his second such arrest since January. He was also charged in May 2009 with affray and resisting arrest without violence, receiving probation and community service. Now, the player once considered one of the Southeastern Conference’s top cornerbacks is set to play his senior season for North Alabama and former Auburn coach Terry Bowden. “There is no doubt that I can stay out of trouble,” Jenkins said. “I came here to take care of business and that’s what I’m going to do.” He joins former Florida teammate Bryan Thomas, who transferred to UNAin 2010 and urged him to come to Florence. Jenkins spent the past two weeks on campus working out with his new teammates and getting acclimated to the Division II school. He has already made a positive impression on h is new coach. “Janoris was projected as a first-round draft pick, so he is obviously a very talented guy,” Bowden sai d. “He is also a very likable guy and everyone has enjoyed having him here. He has fit in well and we’re excited to have him.” Jenkins said he doesn’ t hold a grudge agains t Muschamp. “Everybody makes mistakes,” he said. “At the end of the day it’s how you rebuild off that mistake. I made a mistake and go t kicked out at Florida, bu t that’s all behind me. “There is no issue between me and coach Muschamp. I texted him like two weeks ago and asked how he was doing and he texted me back. He did wha t he had to do and I’m no t mad at him. I respect him as a man and as a coach.” Information from: TimesDaily, http://www.timesdaily.com/ Janoris Jenkins trying to repair image

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK — Acall from a friend with a recommendation for the Yard of the Month Award brought members of the Avon Park Founders Garden Club to a quiet neighborhood off Lake Avenue. It was easy to see why the recommendation was made. The yard of Griselda Murphy, 71 E. Wolf St., stands out from the rest of the yards. Murphy’s across-thestreet neighbor tells her to go in the house and get out of the sun, teasing her that she is trying to make her yard look better than his. She now has the proof, by receiving the Yard of the Month Award. Ahedge along the front of the house nearest the driveway, has an unusual arrangement of shrubbery. The box wood hedge is in a square shape, open in the middle, trimmed in a slope from the house towards the sidewalk. In the center opening, red and green large leafed caladiums can be seen peeking out. Along the other end of the house, impatiens, dusty miller, heather and a salmoncolored hibiscus with large blossoms are flanked by neatly trimmed podocarpus and boxwood. Vari-colored schefflera bushes line the sidewalk to the home. Along the property border are crepe myrtle bushes that Griselda keeps trimmed by removing the dead seed heads. Astately magnolia tree graces the lawn next to the road. To make a recommendation for the Yard-of-theMonth in Avon Park, call 452-1927. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, July 13, 2011Page 7B hometown biz; 9.347"; 13"; Black plus three; process, hometown biz dummy; 0 0 0 0 6 3 0 4 Courtesy photo T he Avon Park Founders Garden Club presented the Yard of the Month to Griselda Murphy, 71 E.

Carol DeArmitt won the Attendance Box. Charms were awarded to Judy Phillips as division winner for June and returning from vacation with a loss.

New members are welcome as are any visitors who may be interested in losing weight. Weigh-in begins at 2:10 p.m. and ends at 3:10 p.m. The meeting begins at 3:30 p.m. and lasts approximately one hour. For more information, you may call 659-1019. This past week the Biggest Loser was June Elam. There were 17 members present with a weight loss of 11.25 pounds. The program was given by Lil McNeeley titled “Big Bertha.” It was a poem about a lady who decided to lose weight and her struggles in doing so. She kep t watching her diet and soon she became slimmer. The TOPS Club went on its shopping trip to Sarasota and all had lots of fun and a good lunch at “Swee t Tomatoes.” Many came home with purchases and a slimmer purse. Barbara Huff has been showing different exercises to do and everyone enjoys doing them with her. The board meeting was held on June 30 with lunch at the Family Restaurant. TOPS Club news Special to the News-SunSEBRING – Julia Perkins, a staff member from the Coalition for Immokalee Workers, presented to the Democratic Woman’s Club of Highlands County on June 25. Perkins described the poor working conditions of migrant workers harvesting produce for American’s tables. She reviewed the human rights abuses faced by famworkers workers ranging from sub-poverty wages to sexual harassment to modern-day slavery. The Coalition for Immokalee Workers has sought to educate consumers about farmworker conditions and workers about their rights. Because of CIW’s efforts, large corporations, including McDonald’s, Subway, and Whole Foods Markets, have agreed to pay a premium for their tomatoes and to stand behind fair working conditions for farmworkers. Last year, Florida’s largest tomato producers also joined the agreements. Thanks to these agreements today, workers rights are being better protected.

C M Y K DearAbby: We have a problem – our pastor. He uses the pulpit to criticize, put people down and offers no compassion. Aperson can only take so much. The problem is, if you say anything to him, you can bet the next sermon will be about what you discussed. How can I talk to him without making him angry? – All Fire and Brimstone DearA.F. and B.: Your pastor’s behavior gives new meaning to the term “bully pulpit.” Rather than approach him yourself, you and others who feel as you do should take your complaint to the governing board of your church. And if that doesn’t fix the problem, you should seriously consider finding another “flock” to join because it appears your shepherd has lost his way. DearAbby: I have been dating “Claude” for eight months. We are planning a trip in the fall to visit his family’s chateau in France. Claude has long legs and refuses to travel in coach because it’s uncomfortable, so he will buy a businessclass ticket for himself and a coach ticket for me. While I’m grateful Claude is paying for my ticket, I feel that since we’re a couple, we should travel together. I don’t want to be upgraded to business class necessarily, but I’d like him to sit in coach with me. When I brought this up, he refused and is now calling me “ungrateful.” My feelings are hurt, and Claude can’t understand why I am upset. My friends and family think he is acting rude and selfish. I can’t help but agree. Do I have a right to be upset? I am so uncomfortable with this arrangement that I’m considering not even going. – Not Ungrateful in San Diego DearNot Ungrateful: San Diego to France is a long flight. It’s a long time to expect a tall person to fold up like a praying mantis just so you won’t be sitting alone in a coach seat on your way to an allexpense-paid vacation. Claude has good reason for wanting to sit in business class. So be a sport and offer to pay for an upgrade to business class and sit with him. I agree that you shouldn’t be seated “10 paces behind him,” and this way you would both be comfortable. DearAbby: When my husband, “Ken,” proposed three years ago, he had a steady job with an income twice as high as mine. He was laid off before our wedding, but we went ahead with the marriage. After our wedding, Ken was unemployed for another year before finally finding a minimum wage job. After one year at that job, he was fired. He has since found another minimum wage position. I am a young teacher. We live in an expensive part of the country. We struggle every day to pay for groceries, gas and other essentials. I wasn’t raised to expect many frills in life and I am frugal, but there are certain things I always assumed I would have – a house of my own, children, a savings account. If I stay with Ken, I don’t believe these things will ever be within my reach. In all other ways, Ken is a wonderful man and I love him with all my heart. But is there ever a time when love isn’t all you need? – Second Thoughts in Asheville, N.C. DearSecond Thoughts: You and Ken have hit a rough patch early in your marriage, but millions of Americans are even worse off – out of work and have given up trying to find any. When you married Ken you promised each other “for richer or poorer.” This recession won’t last forever and, in the meantime, you have a wonderful man you love with all your heart. Whether that’s enough or not, only you can answer. But if you trade in this model, there are no 100 percent guarantees that the next one will be able to give you all you need, either. You may find that in order to get all you need, you’ll have to do it on your own.

That storm has caused our thoughts to blow wildly in every direction and they become a vicious cycle that plays havoc with our head, homes, families and your business. Have you ever lost your wallet and began searching for it in a frenzy? You know this feeling of not being in control and running around. The frenzy started before you lost your wallet. The frenzy is the reason you lost your wallet in the first place. That frenzy is the storm in your head. My goal is to teach you how to calm this storm before it destroys your life, home and business. We are such control freaks. We don’t want anyone to know that our thoughts are not under control. If people really know how chaotic your thoughts were they would know you didn’t have it together. This is why some of us can keep it together at work and our home suffers. There are others who can keep their home looking nice but their thoughts are still turmoil. The constant churning of their thoughts; keeps them feeling out of control (which they are). I can give you all the tools to calm the storm on the outside but if you have not controlled your thoughts you are not going to feel the peace that comes with your routines. In fact you may even sabotage that peace because it feels so strange. After all we have prided ourselves in being able to juggle many balls at one time. This is not virtue; it is a cover up so that no one will really know what is going on inside your head. You think this makes you look organized when really it is only making you look like you have it all together so no one will question you. That storm that is going on in our brains is fueled with self-doubt, perfectionism, guilt, martyrdom and shame. We are not prepared to deal with this storm so we ignore it. In fact it feels normal to us. We have always been this way. We have pushed and pushed trying to do more and more and all we ever do is get further behind and racing to catch up. We have to stop the race and get off of the track to be able to see what we are going to ourselves. My greatest frustration comes from not being able to articulate this to you in words what will allow you to see what you are doing to yourself. I just want you to be still for a minute. This means to stop your brain from spinning and calm yourself down. When I start feeling this way I have learned to recognize it pretty fast. My body has been calm for a long time. I have my routines in place to prevent this from happening to me. Occasionally this feeling will come up. Now when I am feeling like I don’t know what to do next. I stop all that I am doing and spend five minutes making a plan. It is when I am not prepared that this feeling happens. I take those five short minutes and take my foot off my accelerator and quit fueling the storm. When you remove the fuel the storm or fire will go out. It may be hard for you to recognize this storm because your life has always been in turmoil. Be still and the peace will come. Quiet your mind by sitting down. The more you get in a hurry the worse the feeling is going to be. Slow down and set a priority to what has to be done. Do one thing at a time. Not 15 things. You can do this.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Wednesday, July 13, 2011FAMILYFEATURES Astring of pearls. The irresistible matching bag. The gotta-have’em high heels. So many times the accessory makes the outfit. So goes the way of California Black Ripe Olives. From Indian to Italian, black olives are a key ingredient that brings flavor and texture to entrees, salads, soups and more. The most popular usage of black olives is jazzing up pizza, but it’s a must-have item in Mexican favorites such as enchiladas and burritos as well. While they’ve been a longtime pantry staple of home cooks, chefs love the versatility of olives, too. Celebrity chef Claire Robinson has partnered with the California Black Ripe Olive industry to share her tips for dressing up dishes and has developed four knock-out recipes featuring California Black Ripe Olives — every season’s and every dish’s hottest accessory. Share how you accessorize your meals with California Black Ripe Olives in the Dress Up Your Dish recipe contest for a chance to score $2,500 cash and a $100 gift card to www.gilt.com.

Stocking your pantry is like stocking your wardrobe — it’s smart to have items on hand that serve double duty. California Black Ripe Olives are one of those fabulous multipurpose ingredients. Coarsely chop them with a little garlic, olive oil, and fresh herbs and you have a homemade tapenade. Add them to store-bought hummus and it becomes a delicious dip!
