C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING — When Jennifer Swain entered her sophomore year of high school two years ago, she was already looking ahead at what she wanted to do with her life. She knew she wanted to work outdoors and have something to do with the water, but hadn’t settled on anything specific. So, she began to do research, which is how she discovered the field of aquaculture — the science of farming fish. The idea caught her attention right away. Being a member of the Sebring High School FFA, she turned to Hallie Webb, the school’s FFAadvisor and agri-science teacher. The school had never had that kind of a project, he told her. She would have to take the lead, learn what she needed to know on her own, and find three NEWS-SUN Highlands County’s Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Wednesday-Thursday, July 20-21, 2011www.newssun.comVolume 92/Number 85 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 HighLow 95 75Complete Forecast PAGE 12A Less chance of rain, but still very hot Forecast Question: Will the NFL lockout be settled before any preseason games need to be cancelled?

The controversial plant started production in 2008 and has experienced several setbacks with equipment and accounting procedures. A2010 audi t from the Highlands County Clerk o f Courts revealed that the plant lost more than $1.5 million in 2008-09. The plant has also struggled with production predictions and costs due to problems with the hybrid methane fuel collected from the Highlands County landfill, where the plant is located. The request to start selling excess materials was made by Road and Bridge Supervisor Kyle Green, who stated that he has had conversation with the Florida Department o f Transportation, the cities of Avon Park and Sebring, and the town of Lake Placid.

Commissioner Don Elwell asked to have the item removed from the consent portion of the agenda, stating that the amount of the budget transfer from infrastructure funds warranted public discussion. Highlands County was awarded the $1.6 million grant on behalf of Highlands Ethanol LLC., a partner company with British Petroleum (BP) and Vercipia, to design and construct acceleration and deceleration lanes along S.R. 70 as well as turn lane and intersection improvements and signal ligh t improvements at the intersection of County Road 721 and S.R. 70. County resident Bill Youngman asked the commission if there was a need to start the project at this time, stating that no construction has yet begun on the ethanol processing plant. Additionally, Youngman pointed out that the original grant was given to Highlands Ethanol LLC., and Youngman was concerned that the county may have to pay back grants if the projec t did not move forward. “The grant has a lot o f strings attached to it, and i t Vercipia project road funds transferred to begin work on SR 70 See PREP, page 6A Follow the News-Sun on www.twitter.com/thenewssun www.facebook.com/newssun andFinal goodbyeSpace shuttle Atlantis leaves space station for the last time PAGE5A By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING — The Highlands County Summer Reading Program is winding down as the new school year approaches. The program is an ongoing attempt to provide students an opportunity to improve their reading skills over the course of brief summer session in which students will spend a few hours working with experienced instructors. The program is headed by the state Department of Education, which asks participating school districts to serve, or offer, the program to third grade students scoring at the level one tier of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). “Level one scoring students are invited to attend the reading program. We offer the program to students who are recommended for retention. The last two weeks of the program students are tested with a test called the Stanford Achievement Test.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID — Hundreds of students and community members are mourning the loss of Lake Placid High School graduate Alex Barajas, who had been battling leukemia for the past several years before losing the fight last week. Barajas was buried Monday in Lake Placid and nearly 800 people have paid tribute to Barajas life on a Facebook page created over the weekend. Kind, heartfelt words could be found posted all over this page as well as Barajas’personal account. Student Alicia Heminger wrote Friday, “‘Ahero is a man who does what he can.’Romain Rolland. Alex did what he could. He fought the fight and he gave it his all. Unfortunately, God thought it was best to bring him up the stairs, and away from the pain and suffering. We all miss you Alex, and we know your looking down on us. R.I.PLake Placids hero, Alex #24.” Teachers also chimed in with their thoughts of Barajas’struggle with cancer and his well-lived life. “I learned a great lesson from this young man, he didn’t give up on life when faced with adversity! He lived, accomplished goals, and fought with pride. Lets honor him when we face adversity!” said Willie Hills, a vocational education and training instructor at the high school. An avid member of LPHS organizations including service as the Student Government Association president and a member of both the National Honor Society and Future Business Leaders of America, Barajas was very well-liked and an outgoing young man. He was also a member of the football team. During his senior year, Barajas was selected by the Sebring High School Art Club to be the beneficiary of the “Soup Up the Arts” annual fundraiser. Hundreds of Highlands County residents showed up for the event, generating more than $4,000 in donations and sales. The majority of the money was given to the Barajas family. Barajas’mother, Elvia, along with his two younger sisters were all present at the fundraiser in honor of Alex, who at the time was not well enough to attend. Barajas was able to attend his high school graduation where cheers for him could be heard throughout the SFCC auditorium. The University of Florida mascot, Albert, carrying a sign that read “We’re proud of you Alex,” headed the line of students down the aisle to the stage. Students at LPHS have began a petition to retire Barajas’No. 24 football jersey at the start of the 20112012 school year in honor of Barajas.

Students from the chapter engaged in a variety of leadership and development activities such as attending workshops, listening to keynote speakers and participating in competitive events. The FBLAmembers also had the chance to meet the candidates running for national offices and vote for who they wanted to serve the organization for the upcoming year. Members attending were Calago Hipps and Juliana Jackson from APHS and Jocelyn Jackson from APMS. Students attended several workshops to help them build communication skills, manage their money wisely and efficiently, increase membership within their chapters and learn of some community service events that would be fitting for them to participate in within their area. To earn the privilege to attend the conference, members had to compete in events and place in the top three, depending on their event, at both state and district level competitions. The fact that these members qualified to be contenders at nationals after competing against a total of 2,000 students across the state and about 250 students at districts shows how much time and effort they have put into their events. Jocelyn Jackson competed in FBLAPrincipals and Procedures and Hipps (who placed second at the Florida FBLAState Conference) competed in Impromptu Speaking. Attending the National Leadership Conference is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these members. This was the first time any of them had ever attended the FBLA conference at this level and it was a time they will surely never forget. “It was truly a breathtaking experience and it was nice to meet all the officers and members from all over the United States,” Hipps said. Breathtaking also describes how the members felt being in a room with over 8,000 other middle and high school students, a conference record. “Going from 2,000 people at the State Leadership Conference to 8,000 at the National Conference was definitely an experience I'll never forget. Meeting both members and officers not only from around the US, but also from places like Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Europe was such a fun experience. I made several new friends.” said Juliana Jackson. “When you're in the Opening and Closing sessions in the Orange County Convention Center Conference Hall and you look around to see so many people from all different backgrounds and cultures who have also risen to that level, you know that you've accomplished something.” Though none of the members won on the National Level, their first time attending the conference and an enjoyable time in Orlando together was reward enough for their hard work and dedication. The Future Business Leaders of America organization is the largest and oldest business career student organization. FBLAis a nonprofit educational association with over a quarter million students preparing for careers in business and businessrelated fields. Any APHS or APMS student may join their FBLAchapter. Interested students may contact advisors Wade and Melanie Jackson by emailing jacksonteacher@hotmail.com.

On the plus side, he added, years earlier the school had received a grant for a 500-gallon fish farming rig. It was stored in a corner, covered in dust having never been used, ready to be put to work. So, Jennifer went back to the Internet, found specialists in the field, read books and asked questions. She also talked fellow students Kayla Hart, Reece O’Conner and Ashley Palmer into becoming a team. None of them had ever farmed fish before either. Among the first things the team learned was tilapia are not allowed to be sold live in Florida. “They have to be dead to sell,” Jennifer said. Because they are an invasive species, tilapia sold to growers must be hybrids and incapable of reproducing. That has another benefit — unable to breed, the fish put all that energy into growing bigger, quicker instead. On March 24 the team’s first 100 fry arrived – fry being babies. They were about three fingers wide and six inches long, Jennifer said. Of that number, they’ve only lost three. All other 97 fish have flourished without incident. On July 15, the News-Sun visited the project. The fish averaged a pound and a half, an ideal weight for most sales, and were ready for market after only four months. The fish tank is set up in the Sebring High School pole barn, tucked way in the back. Jennifer, who is going into her senior year, is the fish’s sole caretaker over the summer. “It’s my individual project now,” she said. There is work involved, as there is in raising any living creatures or plants. The tank has to be kept clean, the water chemically balanced, the fish fed on time and checked regularly for parasites and other problems. The aerator has to be working, the temperature of the water not too hot nor too cold, and the filters kept clear. Even so, Jennifer said, “tilapia are relatively low maintenance.” As part of the fish project she and her team had to prepare for competition against other teams raising fish too. The students had to master the chemistry of fish farming — learning about phosphates, pH levels and ammonia. They had to study the approximately 151 plants that share a tilapia’s habitat, and the 13 parasites that can harm them. They had to be able to explain oxygen and nitrogen cycles, and understand a tank’s eco-system. “We were all nervous,” Jennifer said. “We’d never competed (in aqua-culture) before and were up against bigger schools. One school had a regular program that was 15 years old. We didn’t think we did too well.” Instead, the team took second place, only 14 points behind the more experienced school. Jennifer took second place individually, behind her teammate Reece O’Conner who was first. Jennifer has raised pigs with the FFAbefore. She can inseminate females, castrate males, dock tails, and punch ears with the best of them. “I love my pigs,” she said, but knows she doesn’t want to raise them for a living. Raising the tilapia has been just the opposite; she loves every aspect of it. When she was jokingly asked if she gave the fish names, Jennifer replied, “No, but they each have a price marked on their bellies.” Right now she is not marketing the fish, selling them to individuals she knows instead. Currently looking into Florida colleges with aquaculture programs, Jennifer plans on pursuing a doctorate in the field. Don’t bet against her. In addition to starting up the tilapia project, she is her FFAchapter president and chairs the district council as well. In the meantime, she said, “at least 10 people have already signed up for the next tilapia program.” Continued from page 1A New-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Jennifer Swain skims the filtering system of her 500 gallon fish farming unit at Sebring High School. She is raising tilapia, a good eating fish that originated in Africa. Her father, Randy Swain helps with the never-ending skimming task. Swains future is swimming with possibilities graders have proficiency on the Stanford 10 they have good cause to be placed in fourth grade in lieu of the FCATreading scores,” explained Director of Elementary Education Joyce McClelland. McClelland is has been director of the summer reading program for the past three years and is confident that this year the passing rate will return to a higher level. “Up until last year we were at a 60 percent to 70 percent passing rate. Last year we fell to about 40 percent, but it is because they’ve been doing better in the school year. There has been a significant gain in passing over 10 percent,” McClelland said. The highly trained teachers spend the day breaking the students’studies into different categories to keep them interested in the work. The students spend 30 to 40 minutes in the Media Center working on the Tickets to Read software. “They have to read passages, identify sight words, and things like that. When they get sections correct they get these little tickets; the tickets go toward their virtual clubhouse. They build it up add stuff and decorate it how they like,” said Cracker Trail Elementary teacher Tanya Koehler. Koehler is one of many teachers who spend their summer helping the 97 Highlands County students who are enrolled in the reading program. The students spend 90 minutes in a group setting where they read, discuss passages, and work on comprehension and interpretation skills. The students also work with a paraprofessional for the FCAT preparation. At the end of the week, staff will come into the program schools to score the students test, allowing parents and students to know ahead of time whether o r not third graders may be placed in fourth grade. “There is also a mid-yea r promotion test that allows student to be moved to fourth grade within the firs t month or so of school,” said McClelland. The program has been a successful allowing students a chance to improve their reading skills, which McClelland says is what the program is all about. Highlands County is one o f several districts that still uses the summer reading program. “Our superintendent and our school board feel it is important and I’m very grateful that they are backing us and this program. A lot of districts budgets won’t allow this, but they made sure we have it here,” said McClelland. Not only do students ge t to improve their reading skills they learn time management and make relationships with teachers they may see in the future. “We want to close the gaps on the deficiencies. They are becoming bette r readers and that’s the bottom line. That’s wha t important,” McClelland said. Continued from page 1A Summer reading program gives students a boost

C M Y K It is pork in our county’s already short budget. An unnecessary expense in a time of negative growth and a failing economy. Not an efficient way to spend taxpayer money. The county staff calls it the Sebring Parkway. We call it an unjustified obsession. Staff, and previous commissions, have argued for this boondoggle more than Ahab did for his chase after Moby Dick. There has been so much debate over pursuing this project that you could call it Highlands County’s own personal white whale. There are several deep themes that are parallel to the book by Herman Melville complete within the Parkway history, including a real fight between man and nature. Alarge portion of the Parkway runs trough scrub habitat, an ecosystem that is unique to this part of the world and one that is diminishing faster than you can call anyone Ishmael. Agreat example of this fight to pave over nature is the current delay in a section of the Parkway to relocate gopher turtles, a “threatened” species that we should encourage and protect, not relocate. Additionally, there seems to be an obsession to complete this major multi-year project despite the current needs of county traffic or of road maintenance. There is a drive, it seems, to conquer this construction monster that stretches beyond current dollars and sense. How can the taxpayer afford another piece of roadway maintenance when County Administrator Rick Helms told the commission they need to find more revenue to maintain what we now have? Any money produced by the gas tax would be better spent on maintaining the current roads, not adding another piece of real estate that will need care — like lighting, mowing and patrolling. More than 400 miles of road in Highlands County currently need care, and there are several that are in such poor shape the postal carriers and ambulances refuse to travel down them. Yet we need to add to that headache by building more road? There is no immediate profit in finishing this project, no gain to the taxpayer and no reasonable way to justify the need in the short term for this road to nowhere. We are asking for the county staff and commission to tell us why we need the next phase of the Sebring Parkway. Why they insist o n this “deal with the devil” over this particular road a t the cost of the environmen t and all arguments to the contrary.

Is being gay something one chooses? Are we all capable of being gay or lesbian, but the better among us choose to be straight? Tim Pawlenty, former Minnesota governor and current candidate vying for the 2012 GOPnomination, was asked by David Gregory on NBC’s Meet the Press (since Pawlenty has shown himself to be so knowledgeable on Lady Gaga) if being gay is a choice, or if they’re “born this way.” Pawlenty’s answer was telling, “Well, the science in that regard is in dispute.” And by “telling,” I mean it is now clear he has not read much on the science of homosexuality. The American Psychiatric Association stopped classifying homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973. Gay-cure or conversion therapy is condemned by the American Medical Association, American Psychological Association, and the American Counseling Association. Remember those gay penguins? The science is not still out on this one. Republicans have a bad habit of deferring to science as an authority only when they wish to inject doubt (see: climate change, evolution, round Earth). This is a basic misunderstanding — if not misuse — of science. There are always more questions in science because that’s what science is: an intellectual systematic study — basically tons and tons of questions. So it will appear indecisive if your worldview demands certainty. There used to be unanswered questions about how bees could fly — but we still built legions of planes. On the other hand the “theory” of gravity is not controversial, but if you look hard enough there’s bound to be a crank somewhere disputing gravity on the basis of feeling that it’s wrong. “Some reputable scientists are not 100 percent convinced gravity exists.” We, as a culture, have decided we’re not going to practice the harems, plural marriages and incest the Christian Bible mentions and instead have opted for love-based nonarranged marriages as the ideal. Our mores are clearly flexible, but somehow the religious right has cherry-picked a hard line on homosexuality. Why? Pure politics. In the same Meet the Press interview, Gregory described Pawlenty as a “boilerplate Republican.” Gay marriage was a boon to Republicans in the 2004 election. It gave George Bush the “political capital” to attempt social security privatization. Now an Iowa group called Family Leader has a “marriage vow” pledge they’ve managed to get two GOP candidates (Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum) to sign. The pledge is a primer for plenty of proposed wedge issues: pornography, polygamy, adultery, women in combat, Sharia law and one we haven’t seen in more than 150 years — slavery. Republicans embrace hotbutton social issues as a way to get their disastrous economic policies passed. It’s like ThreeCard Monte: while all eyes are on the two grooms — whitecollar grand larceny gets decriminalized. Why is it important for Republicans to insist homosexuality is a choice? Why even get into the logical snag of someone WANTING to WANT to be attracted to the same gender? Here’s why: If you can choose being gay, then homosexuality can be condemned as a moral shortcoming. And the immoral having the audacity to demand acceptance is the perfect rallying cry for the GOP base. If you can’t choose to be gay, and it’s something you’re born with — then being against homosexual civil rights is just plan old-fashioned prejudice...something the rest of us choose to condemn as a moral shortcoming. The easiest way to marginalize a group of people is to call their circumstances a “choice.” The poor? Achoice. The underpaid? Achoice. Drug addiction? Achoice? Single motherhood? Achoice. Each is arguably more complicated than this dismissive one-word declaration. However, if you disagree — you’re against personal responsibility! Yes, the GOPis the party of personal responsibility...unless it’s abortion rights or whom you wish to marry. Then the Government should save you from yourself. The actual choice in this issue is choosing to deny science when it doesn’t fit your agenda. The actual choice is choosing to use a group of people who want to become a family as a political prop. The choice is using “choice” as a way to parlay prejudice against a minority into ballot ink. Tina Dupuy is an award-winning writer and fill-in host at The Young Turks.

Choosing homosexuality Guest Column Tina Dupuy Is water being lost to bio-fuel?Editor: I read your letter about our beautiful white beaches here in Highlands County. Have you or anyone from the News-Sun been to any of the lakes around Lake Placid – Lake Grassy for instance? Our water table is the lowest I have see it in 13 years and the water is at least 100 feet from the white sand beach. This during our rainy season, because more and more water is being pumped for the purpose of bio-fuel here in and around Lake Placid. As we know ethanol has been around for years and that was supposed to take care of the oil and fuel problem. But it has not and look at the free tax welfare the growers have gotten and less food produced. The same with bio-fuel; it has already run into problems with fungus in the fuel tanks and most of it grown here will go to China, and again the tax welfare will pay for it as well as we the citizens with less food grown at a higher price and less or no clean water. I would hope that News-Sun and the Highlands Today would look into this matter. And are they really going to just plow under or burn the cane fields? If they do can you imagine living here. C.F. Neeley Lake PlacidLeavitts ideas need to be consideredEditor: Upon reading the article about Fred Leavitt and his talk about bringing in more arts culture into this area, it is long overdue for this commission to act upon. The arts bring much needed money into Highlands County and could bring more if the commission would listen to Fred’s appeal for the arts. Anytime there is an arts function is this area (Highlands Hannock CCC Festival, Lake Placid Arts and Crafts Festival, Sebring Arts and Crafts show, to name a few) they bring in many tourists and artists to this area. I am sure past records would show just how much income comes from the arts. I admire Fred Leavitt’s tenacity and love fror the arts and trying to help this area’s economc decline. Rick Knoche SebringThe weekend is coming upEditor: The weekend of June 25-26 our illustrious governor was missing in action. There was nothing on his official calendar (not even church on Sunday?!?). When reporters asked one of the governor’s aides why there were no activities listed, all the aide would say was, “Check the schedule.” This stonewalling lead the St. Petersburg Times to do some investigative work and make a stunning discovery. Gov. Scott made a trip to the lavish and hidden lair of the Koch brothers in Colorado. The governor did not want his constituents to know that he was at a secret meeting with the billionaires. He was not the only one who secretly went to Colorado. Gov. Rick Perry of Texas also secretly flew out of his state to meet the Kochs. Why all the secrecy? Why didn’t Gov. Scott and Perry want their people to know where they were going and why? Could it be that they didn’t want the poor and middle class to find out that the Koch brothers were giving more instructions about how to suppress the vote, cut more taxes for the very wealthy, destroy the public school system, and make corporations the ruling class of the United States? Gov. Scott is beholden to the Koch brothers who run the second largest private company in the United States. He and other Republican governors and legislatures are taking their marching orders from corporations and destroying democracy in the United States. Supreme Court Justice Brandeis said it best. “You can have corporations running our government or you can have democracy. You can’t have both.” Millie Grime Sebring BouquetHLTs murder mystery was well doneEditor: This was my second time going to the Highlands Little Theatre, the first being the Fourth of July and I was so impressed. The talent in our area is so unbelievable. The Black and White Murder Mystery was a scream. It was full of laughs and kept the audience totally engaged. I won’t tell you much because they might run it again, but it was very up to date and kept me totally enthralled. The dessert buffet from Chef Mac was scrumptious. I probably gained five pounds ... ha ha, but it was worth it. If you haven’t been to one of their shows, I encourage you to go. You will be pleasantly surprised. On to another Kudos that is very, very late and I am so sorry for taking so long. I won a raffle at the Relay for Life in Sebring and in the raffle was a massage from Kristi’s Gifts and Massage in downtown Sebring. It was the best massage I have ever had. I have a lot of insomnia but after that massage, I was so relaxed. I slept for most of the day and all that night. So, for a great massage, go to Kristi’s Gifts and Massage. Patty Lloyd Sebring

It shows the International Space Station with Space Shuttle Atlantis docked on the right and a Russian Soyuz on the far left. By MARCIADUNN APAerospace WriterCAPE CANAVERAL— Aspace shuttle left the International Space Station for the very last time Tuesday, heading home to end the 30-year run of a vessel that kept U.S. astronauts flying to and from orbit longer than any other rocketship. Atlantis slipped away after performing a partial lap around the space station. Ten pairs of eyes pressed against the windows, four in the shuttle and six in the station. All that remains of NASA’s final shuttle voyage is the touchdown, targeted for the pre-dawn hours of Thursday back home in Florida. “Get her home safely and enjoy the last couple days in space shuttle Atlantis,” the station’s Mission Control told commander Christopher Ferguson and his crew. Replied Ferguson: “It’s been an incredible ride.” The voice emanating from the shuttle Mission Control Center cracked with emotion, as the lead team of controllers signed off for the very last time. Another team will take over late Tuesday for landing. “When you walk out the door of MCC there, turn around and make a memory,” urged Ferguson. Flight director Kwatsi Alibaruho did just that — actually turning around a couple of times on his way out. He’ll return to Mission Control on landing day as a bystander, one of dozens of “extras” expected to jam the control room. “The sense of wanting to be a part of that moment is very strong and is going to be building,” Alibaruho later told reporters. In keeping with tradition, Atlantis’departure was marked by the ringing of the naval ship’s bell aboard the space station. The undocking occurred nearly 250 miles above the Pacific. “Atlantis departing the International Space Station for the last time,” space station astronaut Ronald Garan Jr. announced, ringing the bell three times. “We’ll miss you guys. Godspeed.” Ferguson thanked the six station residents for their hospitality, then added: “We’ll never forget the role the space shuttle played in its creation. Like a proud parent, we anticipate great things to follow ... Farewell, ISS. Make us proud.” As a final salute, the space station rotated 90 degrees to provide neverbefore-seen views of the complex. Atlantis flew halfway around the outpost, cameras whirring aboard both craft to record the historic event. Flight controllers savored the dual TVimages of the shuttle — the last ever seen from orbit — and the station. Mission Control called it the second-best view on Earth. “It must look pretty spectacular,” Ferguson said. And it did: Atlantis sailing serenely against the black void of space, its payload bay wide open, and the space station, its huge solar wings glowing golden in the sunlight. “We just want to give you a final goodbye,” Ferguson told the station inhabitants just before Atlantis disappeared from sight. To ensure their safe return to Earth, Ferguson and his crew conducted one final survey of the shuttle following the undocking, using the robotic arm and a lasertipped extension. Experts on the ground scrutinized the images for signs of micrometeorite damage. Atlantis spent 812days at the space station and left behind a year’s worth of supplies, insurance in the event commercial providers encounter delays in launching their own cargo ships.

County Administrator Ricky Helms informed the public that there was not currently a set fee schedule for the resale of asphalt, nor any production estimates. “I can come back with the amount to be charged. I have a feeling that it will be the amount of production plus a little more than that,” Helms said. Commissioner Greg Harris asked Helms why the county waited to start the sale of surplus product. “If we have been able to do this all along, why are we just now doing this?” Harris asked. “It has to do with the availability of asphalt within Highlands County. It has been difficult to get asphalt,” Helms explained. “Commissioners, the private sector is having an extremely difficult time. There is a severe recession out there and it makes it very difficult in the private sector to operate the way they used to operate with production,” Stewart said. “There is a problem with product availability out there,” County Attorney Ross Macbeth explained. “We used to have two plants that operated here, and due to the economy, there is problem with how they do their operations,” Stewart said. Helms further explained that the minimum production level for the plant has been set at 25,000 tons per year, which covers the fixed costs of running the plant. “We have already met that production level this year,” Helms said. “So I am sure that we could provide the asphalt at a cost that is reasonable,” Helms said. Stewart added that the sales to the other government entities within the county would help to off-set the large debt accumulated by the plant operations. “But also, we talked about if we could get more in, it would cover our previously uncovered debts,” Stewart stated. “Yes, it would assist us in meeting our debt service,” Helms agreed. “What this does, it allows you to spread your fixed costs over a larger amount of sales allowing you to service some of your debt,” Macbeth added. “I would expect that we would have that back to you next week to talk about pricing,” Helms said. Continued from page 1A News-Sun file photo by KATARASIMMONS T he county still has to determine how much it will charge when it sells asphalt out of the plant at the landfill. The money from the sale will be used to help pay down the debt of the plant, which opened in 2008. Asphalt from county plant to be sold to help cover county debts looks like we are building a road before the plant was built. What happens if the plant is not built?” Youngman asked. County Attorney Ross Macbeth pointed out that the county has an agreement with Vercipia to pay back any granted money not properly utilized. “We have an agreement with the company to provide, but if the company has no money, then that it will be hard to get that money back,” Macbeth said. “I just don’t want to see us get back into a position where several years from now we have to say ‘Oh, gee. We will have to pay back $1.6 million to the State of Florida,’” Youngman said. Commission Chairwoman Barbara Stewart asked for clarification from Macbeth on how the company ownership was structured. “It is a joint venture, as far as I know, between Highlands Ethanol and BP. It is an LLC too,” Macbeth said. Commissioner Greg Harris also asked what the urgency was in installing the roads now. “I think for a million six we can be prudent and ask questions,” Harris said. “Maybe, before you spend the money to go out and do the project, you will want to get further guarantees since you are so far out in front of construction,” Macbeth said. “Do to the amount of money involved, it would be a wise thing to do to check with them in relation to their production schedule,” Macbeth said. Stewart directed County Administrator Ricky Helms to bring additional information back to the board about the production schedule. Plans for the plant were presented to the public in October of 2008, but several venture investment maneuverings and a rocky economy have delayed the construction of the $350 million plant. It is estimated that the plant would produce 36 million gallons of ethanol per year and employ more than 130 people with 65 employees making in excess of $70,000 per year.

Right: Cody Jolley, left, Carson Angell and the rest of the Sebring AAAs celebrated two wins Monday to stay alive in the Dixie State Tournament in Avon Park. Below: Dylan DeFord hustled to beat out this bunt single during Monday mornings third round of the Dixie AAA State Tournament against Paxton at the Durrah Martin Baseball Complex. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK – As of Monday afternoon, all five Highlands County entrants in the Dixie Ozone and AAA State tournaments were still alive and kicking at the Durrah Martin Baseball Complex. Though by the end of Monday night, that number was down to three. Each of the host Avon Park squads were knocked out of the tournament by big margins in the evening’s games, the Ozone team to Wesley Chapel and the AAAs to a tough Bartow bunch. Luis Lugo rocketed a home run over the center-field fence in the Ozone team loss and Dalton Whitman had an RBI single for the AAAteam, as both teams did a great job in lasting as long as they did. Each had lost its’opener Saturday, dropping them into the consolation bracket of the double-elimination tournament. But they both rebounded with big wins Sunday, the Ozone trouncing Port St. Joe’s 11-1 and the AAAs romped over Havana by the same score. Monday morning’s matchup saw the AAAs eke out a 65 win over the Wesley Chapel American squad to reach Monday night’s contest. And though their tournament runs are over, it was a good experience for both squads. “We’re a young team, with eight 9-year olds,” AAAhead coach Buck Turner said. “Bartow is always a real strong program, but our kids learned a lot and played hard to get here. Nobody really expected us to make it this far.” The Lake Placid AAAAllStars similarly got into do-ordie mode after falling in Saturday’s opening round. And do they did as they rode the shut-out pitching of game MVPJ.J. Huergo in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Holmes County. Back at it again late Monday morning, the team got it’s offense going early and often against Paxton, scoring seven in the first, eight in the second and adding two more in the third before putting it on cruise control in the 17-1 win. Cody Carpenter had three RBI, as did Jace Johnston, while Katwan Ward and Marshall Bond had two runs batted in apiece and Tiger Youngman and Jackson Griffin also had run-scoring hits. It was then just hours later that the team was back at it, squaring off with a strong Port St. Joe’s team that had knocked West Volusia out of the tournament. And it looked like they had a similar mindset as they roared out to a 6-0 lead in a rocky first inning. But patience at the plate reaped rewards in the second as three runs came in on consecutive bases-loaded walks to cut the lead in half. Then in the third, with Patrick Hely racing for the plate, the incoming throw ricocheted off his helmet, allowing another run to scamper home. The tying run was soon tacked on before another big rally got the lead for good. The keen batting eyes drew more walks to bring two more runs home and Carpenter came through again with a two-run single to set the final margin at 11-6 and move Lake Placid along to face Spring Hill Tuesday. “It was a rough start, bu t we battled back,” explained head coach Jim Huergo. “We knew what we needed to do, and we kept our heads up.

It’s really nice to see all of the effort and hard work show.” The Sebring AAAAll-Stars had narrowly gotten past West Volusia Saturday, with a 2-1, eight-inning win, but had a much less nerve-wracking Sunday contest, a 12-1 win over Franklin County. But it was back to nail-biting time as a 1-1 Monday morning affair with Hardee was dwindling to the final innings. The Junior Wildcats went up 2-1 in the top of the sixth, and it could have been worse if not for a fine snare of a line-drive to short by Cody Jolley and a catch of a comebacker to the mound by Joshua Rivera. And with a rally still left in them, the cardiac kids came back. Rivera and Dayvon Terry drew walks to start the bottom of the sixth and Carson Angell came through with a single to right to bring Rivera home with the tying run and move the winning run to third. Robert Spoone then came up and with two strikes was determined to make some positive contact. Which he soon did with a fly ball to center that was deep enough for the gamewinning sacrifice fly and earned him the game MVP. “The kids really came through,” head coach Anthony Gaines said. “I especially feel good for Carson (Angell). It’s been a tough tournament for him so far, but he kept his head up and had the big hit.” The win sent the li’l Streaks to a Tuesday showdown with West Seminole. “That’s the game we’ve looked forward to for 730 days,” Gaines said of the team that knocked them out two summers ago. “Two years we’ve been waiting to play them.” Last, but certainly not least, the Sebring Ozone All-Stars continued to romp their way through the tournament, moving to 3-0 with a 15-1 win over Marianna Monday night. That win came on the heels of a 13-1 Saturday win over West Seminole National and a 26-0 pasting of Hardee, with the boys in blue blasting five home runs in each game. The defending Ozone World Series champions continued their power display against Marianna, with game MVPKyle Helms going deep twice and Seth Cannady and David DeGenaro each homering once. “This was a very good team,” head coach Dean Frazier said of Marianna. “The score might not show how competitive and strong that team is. “It was tough at first with the sun in the batters eyes and the off-speed pitches and curves they were throwing,” he continued. “That seems to be what a lot of teams look to do. They see the scores, hear about the home runs and they try going off-speed. But with these guys, just give them a little time to adjust and they’ll figure it out.” Daniel Simons pitched the first two innings for Sebring with Cannady pitching one before Josh Crouch closed. Like their AAAcounterparts, Sebring was to face West Seminole Tuesday. “They’ve been our nemesis for a few years now,” Frazier said. “It’s a tough bracket, but that’s the way you want it, so that if you are able to win it, you know you beat the best.” Continued from 1B Dixie AAA/Ozone state tourneys continue News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE A bove: Seth Cannady hit another home run in Monday nights win over Marianna.

C M Y K Let’s begin by not overstating the case. Predictions of a soccer boom in America have done more to hamstring the development of the world’s game here than all those wellorganized, well-meaning parents who became youth coaches with no more than a vague idea of how it’s played. And just so we’re clear, there will be no explosion this time, either. After the U.S. women stunned Brazil and just about everybody else in a quarterfinal match at the Women’s World Cup, I wrote that if Americans didn’t fall in love with soccer after that, well, maybe they never would. They did. For exactly a week. But that’s how plenty of love affairs go: torrid one day, indifferent the next. Plenty of Americans already love soccer. Anybody who doubts that should check out the exhibitions being played here this month featuring several of Europe’s top clubs — among them, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid. Most of their games will draw crowds that make last week’s MLB All-Star exhibition look like the softball game at a company picnic. The overnight TVrating for the finale was 8.6, more than tripling Sunday’s marquee event for the boys — the British Open — yet finishing as the second mostwatched women’s soccer game ever, trailing the 1999 World Cup final against China. If you didn’t get enough of the U.S. women last week, don’t worry. They’ll be on the late-night and early morning TVcircuit this week. Traffic on social media was more eye-popping still, generating at its peak more tweets-per-second than either Britain’s royal wedding or the announcement of Osama Bin Laden’s death. But there’s no need to waste time wondering whether soccer will ever be as popular on these shores as the big three of football, baseball and basketball. It won’t, for the next decade at least, for reasons we’ll get to below. Because long-term relationships are built on learning, the better question is what Americans learned that they didn’t know after all the previous predictions of booms that never materialized: two previous U.S. women’s cup wins (1991 and 1999), playing host to the men’s cup in 1994, the creation of domestic leagues for both sexes.. If we’re being optimistic, the answer is this: We finally saw a U.S. team playing a style that we could call our own. If asked, every coach and ballplayer will concede a team learns more from a loss than a win. So it was again Sunday, when a determined Japanese team used the same grit and hustle that’s been the hallmark of every U.S. soccer team, men or women, on a superior squad of Americans. That’s how the U.S. women beat Brazil and then in the semifinal, France, teams that featured more talented individuals and a better understanding of the game. But a funny thing happened on the way to the final. U.S. coach Pia Sundhage, a Swede who played for her national team, knew only too well how fast the gap was closing between the American women and the rest of the world in terms of resources, organization and even quality athletes. She had already laid the groundwork for her squad to rely less on athleticism and more on technique; to play the way the best of the rest of the world does by moving the ball quickly and accurately under pressure. That Sundhage moved the strategy from the training ground to the pitch for the biggest match of their careers shows how much faith she had in this bunch. Even more than American football, soccer is a game of possession and finishing a few scoring chances. The U.S. women succeeded at the first task, but came away with nothing too many times from the opening minute of the match through the final penalty kick. Even so, they came away with something. Up until now, the closest thing to a coherent playing style any American squad displayed on a world stage is what the English used to call “hit and hope.” It involves defending countless attacks as if your life depended on it, then booting the ball up the field and hoping a teammate latches onto it — and somehow beats a crowd of defenders to score. But this one time, even in a loss, the U.S. women stuck their foot in the door and let their countrymen glimpse a wider world of possibilities. Given their legacy and continuing success, it’s only fitting that they’d be the first to break through soccer’s glass ceiling in America. The guess here is that you’ll see the benefits as soon as next summer, at the London Olympics, and not just because the U.S. women will be out for vengeance. They never lacked for motivation and they’ve already learned the game’s most important lesson. Now it’s the men’s turn. It’s been a black mark on their record that a nation of 300 million has yet to produce even one striker good enough to sit on the bench of world powers like Spain, Brazil, Argentina, England or the Netherlands, let alone play in the first team. Anyone who thinks they’re getting their fair share of elite athletes should consider what the NBA’s dozen best point guards could do with a soccer ball if they grew up playing the game. So it’s long past time to hope we hit that jackpot. It’s time to start developing players who can tame the ball with their feet, move it and get it back with enough time and space to carve the same wide swath through the World Cup as their female counterparts. There will be plenty of time before then to start talking about a soccer boom. Jim Litke is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports the Women’s Professional Soccer match between Wambach’s magicJack and the Western New York Flash is a hot ticket, with 10,000 selling in the past five days. About 15,000 fans are expected Wednesday in Rochester. The first 1,000 will ge t Wambach bobbleheads. The 31-year-old forward is from suburban Pittsford. Teammates Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe are expected to join her at a homecoming rally earlier in the day. The owner of south Florida-based magicJack, Dan Borislow, tells the newspaper he expects Wambach will be tired, but will want to play. U.S. star Wambach due home for upstate NY match By DENNIS PASSA Associated PressSHANGHAI — Yao Ming is likely to make it official on Wednesday, announcing what is expected to be his retirement from the NBAand a sport that made him a household name in China. The 7-foot-6 center for the Houston Rockets played eight seasons in the NBA, but has missed 250 regular-season games over the past six years. His career, including frequent appearances for the Chinese national team at Olympics and world championships, has included leg and foot injuries. On Wednesday, a large reception hall at a hotel in the Pudong section of Shanghai —Yao’s hometown — has been booked for what will likely be the country’s media event of the year. It is expected to be broadcast live in China and in many countries around the world. Reports have been circulating for nearly two weeks that the 30-year-old star would retire, but the Rockets have not commented due to the NBAlockout and his management refused to confirm the reports. The NBAsaid it has not received official retirement paperwork from Yao. Yao’s contract expired after last season, and the Rockets said they were interested in re-signing him if he came back healthy. Yao said in April in China that his professional future depended on his recovery from a stress fracture in his left ankle. Selected to the NBAAllStar team eight times after being the top overall pick in the 2002 draft, Yao averaged 19 points and 9.2 rebounds. More importantly, his impact expanded the NBA’s influence in Asia into lucrative merchandise sales and TVratings. Yao had played six years with the Chinese national team before joining the Rockets, and was already a star in his home country. He carried the Olympic torch through Tiananmen Square and his country’s flag during the opening ceremonies at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He also donated $2 million and set up a foundation to rebuild schools in the wake of the 2008 earthquake in Sichuan. After his rookie season, Yao helped the Rockets reach the playoffs in the next two seasons. Yao played in 77 games in the 2008-09 season, when Houston reach the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 1997. But Yao broke his left foot in a postseason game against the Los Angeles Lakers, and underwent complex surgery that sidelined him for the entire 2009-10 season. He lasted only five games at the start of the 2010-11 season, before breaking his left ankle. He underwent surgery in January, and was lost again for the season. Oklahoma City Thunder star forward Kevin Durant was on a promotional tour in China earlier this month when he was asked about Yao’s impact on the game. “Tough, man, tough to see a great player and a great competitor like Yao Ming leave the game after being injured a few years,” Durant said during a stop in the city of Tianjin, east of Beijing. “He comes in, he works everyday. He sets such a good example for the players coming into the league.” Soccer boom? Not. Big step forward?

CLUBS& ORGANIZATIONS Rotarians learn more about the Palms from Roberts A merican Legion Placid Post 25LAKE PLACID — July 10 was another hallmark occasion in the long and extensive history of the American Legion, Placid Post 25 in Highlands County. It was the start of the group’s 82nd year in this area. Many do not realize that the American Legion was chartered five years before Highlands County and has been the largest group of dedicated people (veterans) in this area ever since. J.P. Plunkett Sr. was elected unopposed for his fifth term as commander and with the dedicated help of Mack Carroll and Howard Short, both past commanders, have together through their efforts, led a group of dedicated volunteers from a period of decline, and led the post to be one of the most prominent achievement through the period of economic stress. Members have managed to provide an upgraded facility, both structure and landscaping wise through donations from Lord’s Nursery, Somers Irrigation, Duda farms and many others. Annual dues become due in July of every year and between July and November, the group strives to make 100 percent before the first Sunday in November. This payment from the Legion, Sons of the Legion, Auxiliary and Legion Riders predicates the amounts the group gives each year, to include the following: Veterans Assistance, Children’s Miracle Network, Nursing Program, Special Olympics, Children’s Advocacy, Scouting Programs, Youth Bowling, and Youth Baseball, each more than $10,000. These are some of the major donations over the past six or seven years and do not include: Aid to needy families, aid provided to hurricane and tornado victims, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Horses for Handicapped, Veterans Service Office, Veterans Advisory Council, Veterans Service Council, Florida Sheriff’s Association, Florida Highway Patrol, National Legion Legacy Fund for educational assistance of the children of fallen heroes, Wounded Warriors, Jr. ROTC, Project Graduation, scholarships, Boys and Girls State, Highlands County Honor Guard through VFW4300 in Sebring, Jr. Golf, Youth Soccer, local flag poles, flags and memorials, local parades and festivals, etc. Each year the group answers the call as our forefathers did to serve God and country and the selfsupporting lounge provides some of the best food, entertainment, shows, games, golf tournaments to be found in this part of Florida. Members care about the veterans, youth, community, needy, disabled and deceased. They enjoy being able to do this with the more than 12-member strong organization.Sebring Memorial Post 4300 VFWSEBRING — Members of the Sebring Memorial Post 4300 VFWpresented Alicia Jetton, the widow of PFC Joshua Jetton, a check in the amount of $1,286 on July 12.

C M Y K Associated PressNEWHAVEN, Conn. — Candace Nelson plays a judge on the Food Network’s reality television show “Cupcake Wars.” But now her cupcakes are at the center of a fight with a cupcake upstart. Nelson’s company, Sprinkles Cupcakes, is so frosted that it filed a federal trademark-infringement lawsuit Friday in Connecticut against a store named Pink Sprinkles. The lawsuit claims the similarity in names is likely to cause confusion in the marketplace. “The resulting confusion will damage Sprinkles and injure its reputation in the trade and with the public,” the lawsuit says. The lawsuit says Sprinkles opened its first store in Beverly Hills in 2005 and became a national phenomenon as the cupcakes were featured on shows hosted by Oprah Winfrey, Martha Stewar t and others. Sprinkles, which is based in Texas, has stores in New York, Washington, D.C., California, Dallas, Houston and Scottsdale and is planning to open several more around the country and in London, Paris and Toronto. Pink Sprinkles opened in 2009 and calls itsel f “Fairfield’s first cupcake boutique.” Messages lef t Monday for the owner o f Pink Sprinkles were no t immediately returned. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, July 20, 2011Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 7/15/11 p/u; 0 0 0 1 0 1 8 9 DIVERSIONS BODYENHANCEMENTBy BEN PALL& DAVID KAHN ACROSS 1 Meaningless 7 Dolt 11 Reached 19 Symphony whose second movement is marked Marcia funebre.

Everyone likes to be acknowledged for his or her efforts, don’t they? I sure do. When I make dinner, one of the favorite parts is hearing my family respond positively. You sort of burst with pride when you hear your husband proclaim, “Wow, this is delicious!” or your children say, “Make this again, Mom!” Those are great rewards for those of us who work in our kitchens everyday to feed our families. Rewards are great – they inspire us to do more and keep trying. Children especially are propelled toward greatness when offered a reward. They love being rewarded for doing the right thing. When I was in fifth grade taking piano lessons, my piano teacher would put a gold star on each page of music I mastered. I lived for those gold stars. Remember this when you’re trying to get your children to eat their vegetables. They aren’t going to be telling you how much they love their green beans. Perhaps a little reward is in order, like a choosing a toy at the dollar store at the end of the week for eating as many bites of their vegetable that was on their plate each night as their age. In other words, if your child is 3, having him eat three bites will earn him a gold star. Put a gold star on the calendar and at the end of the week, ta da. He gets a reward. This isn’t bribing. This is rewarding excellent behavior. You are teaching your child life skills when they learn to eat their vegetables. And vegetable eating is very important for understanding the significance of nutrition and how that will impact him or her for the rest of their lives. This week, sit down with your children and give them the opportunity to earn a reward. Teach them that vegetables build muscles (ask to feel your child’s muscles before they eat their veggies and after – let them know you think you felt them grow) and make sure you’re setting a good example, too. Your child won’t eat his vegetables if you don’t. Remember – gold stars are for everyone, young and old.

Gold stars Dinner Diva Leanne Ely DearAbby: My best friend, “Brianna,” often invites me to big parties at her older friends’homes. At first I was thrilled because I’m only 15. At the parties I saw some people doing bad things – but I didn’t, at first. Soon, Brianna pressured me into doing some things that I didn’t feel comfortable doing. My parents are very strict about these things, and I knew it was wrong. I have tried to get out of going to the parties, but Brianna says bad things to me. I have even had to lie to my parents about where I’m going. Every girl my age wants to go to these parties, but I don’t. Am I weird for not wanting to get involved in inappropriate things? I’m afraid if I stand up to Brianna, she’ll make everyone hate me. Please help. What should I do? – Feeling Pressured in California DearFeeling Pressured: You’re not weird, and “every” girl your age does not want to attend the parties you have mentioned. You appear to be a lot more intelligent than your “friend” Brianna, who sounds more like a bully than a friend. Because Brianna does things that could land her in serious trouble doesn’t mean that you should do them. As I say in my booklet, “What Every Teen Should Know": “... when it comes to being enticed into acts that are senseless, dangerous, illegal or immoral, it’s the ‘squares,’the kids who care about their reputations (and their school and/or police records), who really show courage by saying, ‘No thanks, I’ll pass.’” Today, it’s not unusual to hear about teens engaging in adult activities at much younger ages than the teenagers of previous generations. That is why it is so important for parents (and guardians) to take the time to discuss alcohol, drugs, sex and family values with their children well before they start experimenting. My teen booklet provides the answers to frequently asked questions such as: How old must a girl be before she can get pregnant? Can she get pregnant the first time she has sex? What time of the month is a girl 100 percent safe? How old must a boy be before he can father a child? Another important topic that’s included is how to avoid date rape and what to do if it happens.

Shipping and handling are included in the price. My booklet also contains information on contraception and sexually transmitted diseases and how to recognize them. It has been distributed in doctors’offices and used to promote discussion by educators and religious leaders, and is often used by parents who find it difficult to discuss sex with their children.

Teens squares show courage when they learn to say no Dear Abby Associated PressNEWYORK — Charlie Sheen, who was fired from “Two and a Half Men” in March, aims to launch another hit sitcom — this time, on his own terms. The tempestuous star is planning to return to series television in the hopefully titled “Anger Management,” based on the 2003 film of the same name. With no network currently in place, the new series will be produced by Lionsgate Television and shopped to prospective broadcast and cable networks by Lionsgate subsidiary Debmar-Mercury, the company announced Monday. The 45-year-old actor will have a “significant ownership stake” in the series, Lionsgate said. He will also gain “a certain amount of creative control,” he noted. “I chose ‘Anger Management’ because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept,” Sheen said. Analyst Bill Carroll of Katz Media speculated that the series would start on cable for initial exposure and then move to cable and broadcast syndication. That’s the model used by Debmar-Mercury on the Ice Cube comedy series “Are WeThere Yet?” along with “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” and “Meet the Browns,” all of which air on TBS. Despite Sheen’s stormy final chapter with the “Two and Half Men” network (CBS) and studio (Warner Bros. Television), cable and broadcast outlets will have to give his new project “serious consideration” given his past success, Carroll said. Pointing to Sheen’s ownership position in the new series, Carroll added, “You have to assume that’s going to motivate his focus on the show,” Carroll said. Anger issues over the creative direction of “Men” led to Sheen’s terminal clash with its executive producer Chuck Lorre, as well as CBS and Warner. By the time of his dismissal, Sheen had threatened and maligned his bosses, who in turn blasted him for his erratic behavior as a drug-abusing, reckless playboy. After that, Sheen intensified his rants online, in various media interviews and during a live concert tour, propelling such terms as “warlock,” “tiger blood” and “goddesses” into popular discourse. In May, Ashton Kutcher was announced to replace Sheen in “Men,” TV’s most-watched sitcom. Its Sprinkles vs. Pink Sprinkles in cupcake wars Charlie Sheen aims to be winning in a new sitcom
