AP city manager search down to four Deleon By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — More than 100 leaders from all over Central Florida met with representative from Tallahassee on Monday at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Center to discuss the next step in thinking regionally when it comes to job creation and business recruitment. The recent downturn in the economy has prompted several groups to work together, including Heartland Workforce, The Heartland 2060 Consortium, Florida’s Heartland Regional Economic Development Initiative, Inc. (FHREDI), the Central Florida Regional Planning Council, to encourage counties to take a regional approach to planning instead of the county by county plans currently in place. John Kaliski, from Cambridge Systematics Inc. and the first speaker, presented some sobering statistics on the current state of Florida’s economy. According to Kaliski, the state’s unemployment outpaces the national averages and Florida has to be competitive with other countries like India and China to recruit jobs. “The world is now flat and we have to Experts:Highlands needs to think regionally to create future jobs Photo by ED BALDRIDGEJohn Kaliski with Cambridge Systematics, Inc., explains that Florida has to think globally about business recruitment at a meeting on Monday. LP adopts rec fees See SEMINAR, page 3A By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID — The Lake Placid Town Council decided Monday night to proceed with fees for those using town assets for recreation starting Aug. 1. The council directed staff during a marathon meeting to set a flat fee of $30 per user for everyone that participates in organized sports, such as men’s softball and youth baseball. Those who use electricity for lights and concessions will be charged the full amount of the bill from Progress Energy on a monthly basis minus the average monthly cost of $160. “Our wells use about $160 per account monthly. Electricity usage is more than just lights,” said John Komasa, Lake Placid’s Parks and Recreation director. Town staff had suggested that a fee of $20 per hour for using the lights was appropriate, but Komasa was insistent that was nowhere near the actual costs for electricity usage. “I think we should just charge for usage above the $160 average per month. That way, we cover the costs $30 charge for all who play in organized sports leagues News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE Robert Brown, part of the Lake Placid Merchants Association, asks council about security deposits and user fees at the meeting on Monday night. By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID — New fees for reserving Lake Placid’s park facilities are making some concerned about the costs and security deposits. Monday night, the town council agreed to begin charging groups of more than 25 people who would like to reserve a shelter at Stuart Park and Lake June or the gazebo at DeVane Park starting Aug. 1. Non-major events, like small family gatherings and birthday parties, will be charged $25 per hour with a four-hour minimum and a $100 security fee, according to he new policy. “You have to be aware that this is going to have a negative effect on the activities in the parks,” said Councilman Steve Bastardi. Councilman Ray Royce pointed out that the fee was only charged for groups larger than 25 or for smaller groups who wished to reserve the park for a gathering.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAvon Park — City council members voted to give new businesses moving into existing buildings that are already hooked into the city’s water system a $20,000 subsidy toward the impact fee. The city charges the fee to offset the cost of the connection and the cost of treating the water. The amount of the fee varies depending on projected water use. In some cases, business owners will have to pay the difference between the subsidy and the fee. This Avon Park policy is separate from the county’s, which has waived all impact fees at this time. The vote was 2-1, with Mayor Sharon Schuler voting against. Council member Parke Sutherland was absent, and member Terry Heston abstained as his construction company is doing work for one of the businesses that will benefit from the ordinance. The ordinance is controversial, and individuals stood to speak out against it. George Hall, a former member of the council and owner of car washes and coin laundries, said the ordinance was unfair to businesses which have paid the full impact fee in the past. He also said that with the city scaling back its staff and not issuing raises, he couldn’t see, “giving away $20,000 to individual businesses.” Interim city manager Julian Deleon responded that the money involved could only be applied to the utility enterprise fund. None of the money could used to pay salaries. “The object is to attract business,” Deleon said. He added that by attracting new business the city would increase its utility revenue in the future.

While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-toface service with the visiting public without incurring the cost of overtime. Congress provided Social Security with nearly $1 billion less than the president requested for the budget this fiscal year, which makes it impossible for the agency to provide the amount of overtime needed to handle service to the public as it has. Most Social Security services do not require a visit to an office. For example, anyone wishing to apply for benefits, sign up for direct deposit, replace a Medicare card, obtain a proof of income letter or inform us of a change of address or telephone number may do so at www.socialsecurity.gov or by dialing our toll-free number, (800) 772-1213.

The money was to cover extensive damages at the airport, including to the Ben Hill Griffin hanger. The problem, said Green, was partly the result of miscommunication. The city’s then insurance company never sent a claim or information to the city, and Ben Hill Griffin’s insurance company paid a portion of the claim but didn’t tell the city. Green said she has been in contact with FEMAfor at least a year working to straighten things out. With the dollar amount set, FEMA is asking for repayment. The decision to be made, she said, was where to get the money. When the council asked Green if the payment could be put off a little longer, she said, “No, they want the money immediately.” She advised borrowing the amount from the city’s contingency fund to be paid back by the airport later. The fund has $200,000 in it, Green said, so the money is there. Green also told the council the city had the funds to pay out the $1.9 million it raised with 2001 series bonds to make street improvements. “I’d like to go ahead and get that paid,” she said. “Nov. 1 is the next due date for the interest. Even after paying the remaining $930,000 there would still be $900,000 in the infrastructure fund.” By paying the debt now, the city would save almost $129,000, she said. City council approved both of her requests. The council also voted to spend $100,000 repairing streets in the Manors and paving Fogle Road. The object, interim city manager Julian Deleon said, was to save the residents from paying an assessment. While Manor residents would have to pay about $600 a home, the handful of families on Fogle would have to pay $8,000 per home. The Manors homeowners association had ceased to exist, Deleon said, and with its demise all road maintenance came to an end. It is a matter of public safety, Deleo n added. Fogle Road has never been paved. Deleon told the council the money comes from the infrastructure fund, which receives the one penny sales tax. Avon Park to pay back FEMA $59,000 News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY City residents listen Monday night as the Avon Park city council voted to subsidize water connection impact fees, pay off a $900,000 bond series, and spend $100,000 to pave and repair streets in the Manors and Fogle Road. Special to the News-SunSteve Perry won election as student council parliamentarian and as president of the Letterman’s club in 1982, when he became a senior at Avon Park High School. Now, he’s competing to win 30 years later. This time he’s hoping for a seat in the Illinois General Assembly. Perry, a communication professor at Illinois State University, declared his intention to run for state representative July 18, after the state legislature re-drew the legislative boundaries following the 2010 census. Perry was the son of Rev. Steve Perry, who served as the pastor of Avon Park Church of the Nazarene from 1978 to 1984. He left Avon Park to attend college in Nashville and graduate school in Alabama after graduating as valedictorian of APHS in 1983.

C M Y K compete in a global economy,” Kaliski said. Additionally, Kaliski’s group predicted that Florida will become one large “mega economy” over the next 30 years, but has the potential to attract different forms of business than the traditional models of agriculture or tourism. Projected needs for the state include increased infrastructure to handle the expected 5 to 7 million in population growth predicted by Kaliski’s company. Central Florida’s lower income rates, which are 2025 percent below the rest of the state, gives it an advantage for industry looking for a large labor pool and Kaliski suggested that health care, niche manufacturing, renewable energy like solar panel farms and biofuel production will drive the future local economy. According to Teresa Barber of the Fairfield Index consulting group, the state has been divided into eight strategic geographical regions of similar economic indicators. This “Florida Eight” will be used to build “regional capacity, job and business retention, international diversification and empower regional collaboration.” Workforce Florida intends to stage launches of up to eight Regional Business Teams (RBTs) focused on job and business retention for each specific area. Highlands County is included in South Central Region and is grouped with Hardee, DeSoto, Okeechobee, Glades and Hendry Counties because of the economic similarities. Dr. Dale Brill, Ph.D., president of the Florida Chamber Foundation, took the foundation of the Florida Eight and discussed a regional approach to “Six Pillars” of economic development including: 1) Talent Supply and Education. 2) Innovation and Economic Development. 3) Infrastructure and Growth leadership. 4) Business Climate and Competitiveness. 5) Civic and Governance Systems. 6) Quality of Life and Quality Places. Each one of these “Pillars” were grouped from common themes taken from 36 strategic plans from Florida counties and are an attempt to help each member of a Florida Eight region work towards common goals. “Long-range planning and diversification of industry throughout the state is the goal. But first we have to communicate with a common language and with one shared agenda on a regional basis,” Brill said. “Each region has unique resources and logistics, but they have to work cooperatively to leverage those resources,” Brill added. Workforce Florida, represented by president and CEO Chris Hart, will lend a hand with each region in building the business teams and addressing the strengths from a labor perspective. “Do you have the talent?” Hart asked the audience, speaking towards what skills are available on a regional basis, and what skills need to be developed to attract highpaying jobs. Gary Swoope, presiden t and CEO of Enterprise Florida, Inc., explained tha t his job was to “sell” each region to prospective business, and his hope was to help the state diversify. “We need to think differently,” Swoope said. “We are not competing with states like California, New York o r Texas when it comes to business recruitment and retention. We are competing with states in the southeast as well as global economies. We need to make you appear bigger than you are for prospective businesses. We will do that through thinking regionally and using strategic partnerships to recruit. All of this will lead to job creation throughout the state,” Swoope said. “And I have until Oct. 1 to present a new plan to the governor,” Swoope added. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, July 27, 2011Page 3A WELLS MOTOR COMPANY; 11.25"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, new p/u; 0 0 0 1 0 4 6 8 City of Sebring 3x4 00010503 Continued from page 1A Seminar focuses on creating future jobs in Heartland Courtesy illustration Dr. Dale Brill, Ph.D., president of the Florida Chamber Foundation, took the foundation of the Florida Eight and discussed a regional approach to Six Pillars of economic development at Mondays seminar. Associated PressORLANDO — Anew study from an advocacy group shows that overfishing two years ago cost millions of dollars for fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic. The study released Monday by the Pew Environment Group says Gulf fishermen lost $12.3 million and South Atlantic fishermen were out $2.9 million because of depleted populations of red snapper and gag grouper. The study says revenues could have been 1632 percent higher if not for the population declines. The study is being released weeks before fishery managers will consider new protections for gag grouper in the Gulf and new catch limits on dozens of other fish species.

C M Y K What are a government’s core functions?Opinions range from the belief that a government is responsible for all aspects of society to the belief it should provide for our public safety only. We feel, as with most major questions in life, the answer lies somewhere in between. We strongly agree with those who say people are over-reliant on government — that too many of us look to it to solve all our problems. On the other hand, we have to agree with those who point out there are certain functions only a government can fulfill. Take education. According to “AHistory of Public Education” by Deeptha Thattai, prior to the creation of the modern public school system, which began in the mid 1800s, education was a luxury available only to the wealthy. As the nation industrialized, however, and welcomed new immigrants from many different cultures, the need for quality education available to all became obvious. So public education grew in this country driven by two major forces — the goal of creating American citizens, and creating a skilled workforce. Because America can only prosper when engaged citizens are employed — and earning enough to be able to save — we argue that public education is a core government responsibility. In fact, our general welfare depends on it. Which brings us to the Boys & Girls Club, which the county commission is slowly cutting out of its budget. There are those who believe the clubs should be privately funded, that taxpayer dollars are wasted, or spent unfairly there. The argument is: Why fund one charity over another? We feel the spending of tax dollars has to be done on a case-by-case basis. The most important point being benefit to the community. The Boys & Girls Club benefits the community in a wide variety of ways. It is not a baby-sitting organization. The children attending not only do homework, but receive tutoring and support. The clubs offer parents a safe, structured environment for their children, who might otherwise be unsupervised and roaming the streets. For many children, in other words, the clubs are what keep them involved in learning, in school and able to succeed. Now take some disquieting statistics. According to The Florida Scorecard, 77 percent of Florida’s K-12 students are doing better than Highlands County students in math and science; 27 percent of Highlands County students do not graduate from high school; only 13.6 percent of Highlands County students attain college. We hope the people who are our local government rethink their philosophy — working to keep students in school and optimistic about their chances in life is essential to a fruitful and peaceful future. And that, we think, is a not just a core function, but essential to democracy itself — not to mention business — which makes tax dollars spent on the Boys & Girls Clubs an enlightened, excellent investment.

I wasn’t in Washington, D.C., a week ago and missed the Lettuce Ladies You see, July, according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, is National Hot Dog Month. It’s when we pay homage to the 7 billion delicious dogs we’ll eat between Memorial Day and Labor Day this year. But People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is none too happy about that. Every July, PETAsends babes clad in bikinis made from lettuce leaves to Capitol Hill, where they promote vegetarian dogs. As the bikini babes mesmerize congressional members and staffers, PETA folks chat them up. According to peta.org, they’re told that “pigs suffer on factory farms and that flesh-based hot dogs contain noses, toes, anuses, and other ‘undesirable’ body parts.” Sounds like a Harry Potter recipe. Sounds mighty tasty, too — so long as it’s all ground up, stuffed into a sausage casing, grilled to perfection and washed down with ice-cold beer. PETAsays “meat not only causes life-threatening health conditions and animal suffering, but also greenhouse-gas emissions, water pollution, and land degradation.” And that “sexy vegetarians are living proof that kicking the meat habit is a great way to stay fit, trim, and energetic!” That may be true, but another way to stay fit, trim and energetic is to stay a 21-year-old bikini babe. Still, I have to give PETAcredit for its strategy. In the old days, PETA had a reputation as a nutty organization best known for extreme activities. Though a spokesperson told me PETAnever sponsored spray-painting of fur coats, bombing of animaltesting labs or throwing of tofu pies at public figures, PETAsupporters were associated with such acts, and much of America viewed the lot of them as the nuts they were. They’ve gotten smarter. Instead of hammering away directly at their agenda — to stop all meat eating, slaughter and animal research — they’ve shifted their focus to something nearer and dearer to our hearts: impotence. PETAsays eating meat clogs arteries, which weakens all organs. It created billboards displaying a bikini babe holding a plate of sausages and saying, “I threw a party but the cattlemen couldn’t ...” In any event, though I missed the Lettuce Ladies this year, their annual outing seems to be losing its oomph. This year’s Lettuce Ladies included “Sexiest Vegetarian Next Door” winner Kate Veltkamp and runner-up Udara Perera — attractive lasses, judging by their photos. But the Lettuce Ladies I’d met included two former Playboy models, who generated lots more press. I was smitten by the curvaceous Julie McCullough, a former Playmate of the Year, who said she’d do anything — anything — to discourage eating meat, including running naked down the street to raise funds for the effort. AUPI photographer next to me nearly fainted — a portly Reuters reporter began to shake — but I managed to keep my composure. I asked her if she took credit cards. Perhaps it’s a sign of our troubled times that fewer folks seem interested in PETAand its Lettuce Ladies this year — media coverage was modest. I suppose people worried about making mortgage payments embrace more commonsense thinking, such as this: If God didn’t want us to eat ground-up pig toes in sausage casings, why’d he make them taste so good?

Forty years later here in Lake Placid, Toby’s clowns are celebrating. Here are the first two paragraphs of that proclamation by President Richard Nixon: “Whoever has heard the laughter of a child or seen sudden daylight on the face of a lonely old man has understood in those brief moments mysteries deeper than love. “All men are indebted to those who bring such moments of quiet splendor – who redeem sickness and pain with joy. All across America good men in putty noses and baggy trousers, following a tradition as old as man’s need to touch gently the lives of his fellowman, go into orphanages and children’s hospitals, homes for the elderly and for the retarded and give a part of themselves. Today, as always, clowns and the spirit they represent are as vital to the maintenance of our humanity as the builders and the growers and the governors.” Located in Lake Placid is the Toby the Clown Foundation and Museum. This museum is dedicated to American clown history. You are invited to tour the museum Wednesday, Thursday or Friday every week from noon to 4 p.m. During National Clown Week, the museum will be open each day, Monday-Friday, and there will be face painting by some of Toby’s Clowns. Some may be suffering from Coulrophobia (fear of clowns) after seeing poor portrayals of clowns by Hollywood. At Toby’s, our motto is to share “Smiles, Love and Laughter” throughout Highlands County and across America.

Darrel “String Bean” Jingst President of Toby’s Clown Alley America’s shame and disgrace Editor: “No one left behind.” We have close to 200,000 veterans’claims, many claims of men and women in their 70s and 80s. “Who has our back?” We are now fighting five wars, and we have more than 900 bases around the world. Those who have been left behind need the full support of the many veterans’ organizations who are supposed to watch our back. We, including myself, feel that we are “left alone” to fight for our just claims against an uncaring Congress and Senate, many of whom have been in government most of their lives, many over 30 or 40 years, gaming the system, serving themselves rather than serving the people they took an oath to serve. Many are millionaires. The VA’s claims department for disabled veterans “total cost” to operate is staggering; it would be less costly to pay those just claims. To prove a point, just look at the bailout cost to pay taxpayers that was supposed to get the economy moving. They could have paid every taxpayer $1,000,000. In truth, the bailout was a gift of taxpayers’money to the super rich. The truth of the VA’s denial of claims is that they are hoping that those of age will just die and the problem will die with it, but American history will take note of this black deed, leaving hundreds of thousands of disabled veterans to fend for themselves against an uncaring nation. “Leave no veterans behind,” have we no shame? Billie E. Jewett Sebring BouquetLake Placid helps out care centerEditor: An open letter to the residents of Lake Placid: Thanks to the great love and heart of our Lake Placid residents our ‘cup overflowed’at the Stock the Shelves event in June. Jeannie Snively and Joyce Watters organized this great function. Michael Noel from Trivent Financial donated a lunch for four in a local restaurant. The guests came to see the finished work at the center and donated medical supplies, office material, office furniture, cleaning supplies and gave continued financial support. We had so many gifts that it took our volunteer staff almost a week to organize our blessings. Lake Placid is such a special community. I invite all the Lake Placid residents to stop by and see the Samaritan’s Touch Care Center. Susan E. Elam, RN, Director Ana Maria Quinn Manager

Disappointing earnings from 3M and Netflix also pulled stocks lower. Republican and Democratic lawmakers have offered competing proposals to avoid a catastrophic default on the government’s debt. Aresolution still appears a long way off. President Barack Obama called for a compromise in a televised address Monday, but House Speaker John Boehner said the White House has failed to negotiate in good faith. If an agreement is not reached by Aug. 2, the U.S. won’t have enough cash to pay all its bills. That could have a devastating effect on financial markets. The U.S. would likely lose its triple-Acredit rating, causing interest rates to soar. Stocks could plunge as investors look for relatively safe places to put their money. Most investors believe the odds of a default are still low. Yet they worry about whether the government will come up with a long-term solution to raise the borrowing limit, or simply a short-term fix that will need to be addressed again in 2012, an election year. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 77 points, or 0.6 percent, to 12,516 in early trading. The Dow was headed for a third day of losses. Debt gridlock weighs on stocks

C M Y K By MAE ANDERSON APRetail WriterNEWYORK — Americans’confidence in the economy continues its rollercoaster ride. As their short-term outlook on jobs and income eased somewhat, U.S. consumers’ confidence rose slightly in July, according to a monthly survey out on Tuesday, but confidence levels still remain weak overall. The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index edged up to 59.5 in July, from a revised 57.6 in June that marked a seven-month low in the measure. Economists had expected the July figure to fall to 56. “Overall, consumers remain apprehensive about the future, but some of the concern expressed last month has abated,” said Lynn Franco, director of The Conference Board Consumer Research Center. Areading of 90 indicates a healthy economy on the index, which measures how Americans feel about business conditions, the job market and the next six months. It hasn’t approached that level since the recession began in December 2007, and a shift of less than five points is generally discarded by economists as insignificant. Economists carefully monitor consumer confidence because consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. The increase is “a bit bizarre given that all the other measures of confidence have recently fallen,” said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist with Capital Economics. Last week a Thomson Reuters/ University of Michigan survey that also tracks consumer confidence showed the measure fell in July to its lowest level in more than two years. for total electricity usage, not j ust the cost of the lights,” Komasa told the council. “If electricity bill is $700 per month during baseball season, then we should charge the $700 minus $160,” Komasa explained outside the meeting. After some debate, the council agreed with Komasa, but was sure that not everyone would agree with the increases. “When you go from no charges to any charges, people are going to be unhappy, you just have to expect that,” said Councilman Steve Bastardi. “But we have to make it clear that that those paying the taxes are not happy with having to foot the whole bill.” “We already pay $360 per team for league sponsorship, registration to ISA, umpires and fees. I understand the town’s position, but I think that adding another $300 per team will convince a lot of people to find somewhere else to play,” explained Robbie Holland, umpire in chief for the Lake Placid Adult Softball League. “Look for about half of the players to drop out of the league. The majority will go to Sebring, or will not play at all,” Holland said. “I don’t understand where the big maintenance costs come in. We have volunteers who repair lights and mow the fields already. I don’t understand why so much for maintenance.” “The county dictated this need to charge. This is their mandate,” said Councilwoman Debra Worley during the discussion. The council also directed Komasa and town attorney Bert J. Harris to write a letter to the state for clarification on a grant stipulation on a Florida Recreation Development and Assistance Program (FRDAP) grant about charging a different fee for town taxpayers versus county users of facilities. “We need to inform the state what we are doing and have them tell us why we cannot charge different rates,” directed Councilman Ray Royce. The council directed Komasa to proceed with a boat ramp sticker which is free to those who can show residency in Lake Placid, but costs $20 per year for nonresidents.

It only applies if you want to reserve the time or if you have larger groups,” Royce clarified. Major events (those consisting of 500 or more people) like the annual car show, would be required to rent the park, pay a $750 security deposit and get $2 million in insurance to protect the city. Robert Brown, president of the Lake Placid Merchants Association, asked the council to reconsider the original amounts for security deposits and fees because it would deter events in the parks. “Using this format...one of the events that we sponsor would cost us $1,600; $1,000 of that would be returned, but we would have to tie up a considerable amount in deposits,” Brown said. “Our budget for the whole year is less than $3,000,” Brown said discussing the Lake Placid Fall Festival. “Quite frankly, there is no reason for us to move this back (to DeVane Park) from the football field. Now we are in a position of moving off of town property to have events like the Easter egg hunt,” Brown said. “For larger events, I think we need larger security deposits,” said Royce. “We have the potential for more stuff to get trampled and broken when the car show is going on or when over 500 people are using the park,” Royce said. Royce suggested lower the original security deposit for events over 500 from $1,000 to $750, but raised the amounts for groups of 1-99 people from a $30 minimum to $100 minimum. The minimum security deposits fro groups from 100199 were raised from the suggested $75 minimum to a flat $200 and groups from 200499 pay a $750 deposit, but groups larger than 500 have to put up $1,000. Fees would also apply for water and electricity usage and food vendors have to be pre-approved by town staff. “You can’t sit here and think that by adding fees to the park, anyone is going to say ‘Hey, that’s a good idea,’” Councilman Steve Bastardi said, “but we have to pay for the costs of maintenance.” “When all of a sudden it costs $100 to have a birthday party there, there won’t be that many birthday parties there,” said Royce. “We want more activities there, not less, but we also want to get the money to maintain the stuff. You have to maintain the stuff,” Bastardi said. Council directed staff to make minor adjustments to the policy and return to the next meeting for approval. “We are not going to get this all right to start with, but we need to get this started,” Royce said.

Park user fees cause concern in Lake Placid Sports leagues to have $30 fee in Lake Placid Consumer confidence rises in July By HOPE YEN Associated PressWASHINGTON — The wealth gaps between whites and minorities have grown to their widest levels in a quarter-century. The recession and uneven recovery have erased decades of minority gains, leaving whites on average with 20 times the net worth of blacks and 18 times that of Hispanics, according to an analysis of new Census data. The analysis shows the racial and ethnic impact of the economic meltdown, which ravaged housing values and sent unemployment soaring. It offers the most direct government evidence yet of the disparity between predominantly younger minorities whose main asset is their home and older whites who are more likely to have 401(k) retirement accounts or other stock holdings. “What’s pushing the wealth of whites is the rebound in the stock market and corporate savings, while younger Hispanics and African-Americans who bought homes in the last decade — because that was the American dream — are seeing big declines,” said Timothy Smeeding, a University of WisconsinMadison professor who specializes in income inequality. The median wealth of white U.S. households in 2009 was $113,149, compared with $6,325 for Hispanics and $5,677 for blacks, according to the analysis released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center. Those ratios, roughly 20 to 1 for blacks and 18 to 1 fo r Hispanics, far exceed the low mark of 7 to 1 for both groups reached in 1995, when the nation’s economic expansion lifted many lowincome groups to the middle class. The white-black wealth gap is also the widest since the census began tracking such data in 1984, when the ratio was roughly 12 to 1. “I am afraid that this pushes us back to what the Kerner Commission characterized as ‘two societies, separate and unequal,”’said Roderick Harrison, a forme r chief of racial statistics a t the Census Bureau, referring to the 1960s presidential commission that examined U.S. race relations. “The great difference is tha t the second society has now become both black and Hispanic.” Stock holdings play an important role in the economic well-being of white households. Stock funds, IRAand Keogh accounts as well as 401(k) and savings accounts were responsible for 28 percent of whites’ne t worth, compared with 19 percent for blacks and 15 percent for Hispanics. According to the Pew study, the housing boom o f the early to mid-2000s boosted the wealth o f Hispanics in particular, who were disproportionately employed in the thriving construction industry. Hispanics also were more likely to live and buy homes in states such as California, Florida, Nevada and Arizona, which were in the forefront of the real estate bubble. Wealth gap widens between whites, minorities in U.S.

C M Y K By BARRYWILNER Associated PressWASHINGTON — Let’s talk Peyton Manning touchdown passes, not antitrust lawsuits. Let’s talk Troy Polamalu interceptions, not court interventions. And let’s talk football, not lockout. Finally, 4 1/2 months after the NFL’s first work stoppage in 24 years, Commissioner Roger Goodell could say the words fans awaited: “Football’s back.” With a frenzy. Goodell and NFLPlayers Association head DeMaurice Smith both used that phrase Monday while announcing their agreement on a 10-year deal to end the lockout that began in March. Players can report to team facilities on Tuesday for physicals, meetings and to pick up playbooks. Training camps begin on Wednesday for 10 teams, with the other 22 starting workouts throughout the rest of the week. “As a fan of the game, I’m pleased the two sides have reached a deal and, as a professional, I want to get back to work,” Manning said. There’s tons of work to do, including what promises to be a wild free agency period. Teams could start negotiations with free agents on Tuesday, but can’t sign anyone until Friday. “It’s going to be fast and furious,” agent Joel Segal said. The negotiations to end the lockout were anything but. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft took note of that. “I’d like, on behalf of both sides, to apologize to the fans,” Kraft said. “For the last five, six months we’ve been talking about the business of football — and no t what goes on, on the field, and building the teams in each market,” Kraft said. “But the end result is we’ve MyFWC.comRecreational and commercial harvest seasons for spiny lobster in Florida are set to reopen soon. The special two-day spiny lobster sport season comes first, July 27 and 28 this year, followed by the regular lobster season Aug. 6 through March 31. The special two-day sport season occurs on the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday in July each year to let recreational harvesters collec t spiny lobsters before commercial lobster traps are placed in the water on Aug 1. SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, July 27, 2011 NASCAR This Week4B And Another Thing... Dan Hoehne Associated PressNEWYORK — With the players ratifying an agreement Monday to end the NFL lockout, the league gets back to business this week. It’s a frantic schedule as everyone crams months of work into a few days. The upcoming league schedule, according to the NFL: MONDAY —Free agent lists will be distributed to teams. TUESDAY —Players can report to team facilities for physicals, meetings and to receive playbooks. —Teams can start signing 2011 draft picks and rookie free agents. They also can begin making trades. —Conversations between clubs and veteran free agents from all teams can start Tuesday, but no signings can occur until Friday. There will be no window for teams to negotiate exclusively with their own veteran free agents. WEDNESDAY —Training camps open for 10 of the 32 teams: Arizona, Baltimore, Dallas, Denver, Jacksonville, New England, Oakland, Philadelphia, San Diego and Seattle. THURSDAY —Camps open for Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Kansas City, Miami, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Tampa Bay and Washington. —Teams can waive or cut players. FRIDAY —Camps open for Buffalo, Carolina, Chicago, Cleveland, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Minnesota, New York Giants, St. Louis and Tennessee. —Teams can begin signing free agents and renegotiated contracts. Signed players will be prohibited from physical activity until a CBAis ratified. —Signed rookies may participate in camp and have health protection if injured. SATURDAY —Camps open for New York Jets and Houston. THURSDAY, AUG. 4 —The league year begins if the CBAhas been ratified by the NFLPA, which must first re-establish itself as a union. —All clubs must be under the salary cap.

See LOBSTERS, Page 3B I sit here at home Monday afternoon, early evening, while ESPN is going wallto-wall on the end of the NFLlockout much as they have been for the last five days on the impending end of the NFLlockout. In just this one way, at this given time, it is getting a tad annoying. Mainly because they’re are preempting my regular late afternoon, early evening shows. I mean, really. How many ESPN stations are there? They couldn’t have shuffled “Around the Horn” and “Pardon the Interruption” over to ESPN2, or ESPN News? Of course, those shows would have been blanketing this same topic, but I appreciate those shows for the varying opinions of my brethren sportswriters in the big markets. But that, as said, was the one thing that got to me this day, as the end of the lockout, and it’s many ramifications, is exciting, relieving and scintilating all at once. Look at the collective bargaining agreement that will guide the league over the next 10 seasons. A$120 million salary cap, of which a few teams are over and will have to make some cuts. Included, however, is a salary floor, so many of those teams that don’t shell out enough to remain competitive will now have to. Small market doesn’t exist in the NFL, given the revenue sharing, and this now means that those teams with the small market mentality will have to spend that much more on their players. The Major League Baseball owners tried getting the salary floor into their last agreement with the players, but somehow the players nixed it. Teams that otherwise might not have spent as much on their players are now forced to spend at least a certain amount, which thus benefits those players. So some teams have to cut, many have to add, add, add with a very short time period to do so. Aha, the excitement of free agency and off season wheeling and dealing, because of the late date of the agreement, is going to take place in a matter of days, not months. Teams are going to start reporting to training camp over the next few days and they will need a full team to train at camp. And that doesn’t even include the multitude of players that were drafted and weren’t able to sign. Oh, and there was a restructuring of the rookie pay scale, which won’t allow teams to blow a bunch of money on an unproven commodity and therefore spread the wealth that much more among the veterans. And now the real fun begins See FUN, Page 3B By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI — The Miami Dolphins deployed cheerleaders and other employees to locations in three counties Monday to advertise the NFL’s return. Phones rang frequently at the ticket office, and the team complex bustled with meetings in preparation for the start of practice Thursday or Friday. As for coach Tony Sparano? “It’s tough to get to see him,” Dolphins vice president Harvey Greene said. “He’s obviously behind closed doors, getting ready for the avalanche to fall in the next few days.” With the lockout over, an offseason of activity will be condensed into a matter of days for every NFLteam. Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said Sparano and general manager Jeff Ireland are ready for a frenetic stretch in free agency while training camp simultaneously begins. “I would say the game face is certainly on,” Dee said. “Jeff Ireland and Tony and their respective groups have been preparing for this day. They are in lockdown, ready for the week ahead, ready to hit the ground running.

C M Y K been able to have an agreement that I think is going to allow this sport to flourish over the next decade.” Then came what may truly be the lasting image of the dispute’s resolution: Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday wrapped one of his burly arms around Kraft and enveloped him in a hug — a gesture that symbolized the acrimony’s end more than any statement could. When Saturday spoke to reporters, he offered an eloquent tribute to Kraft, lauding him as “a man who helped us save football,” and to Kraft’s wife, Myra, who died Wednesday from cancer. “Aspecial thanks to Myra Kraft, who even in her weakest moment allowed Mr. Kraft to come and fight this out,” Saturday said. “Without him, this deal does not get done.” Owners can point to victories, such as gaining a higher percentage of all revenue, one of the central issues — they get 53 percent, players 47 percent; the old deal was closer to 50-50. There’s also a new system that will rein in spending on contracts for first-round draft picks. Players, meanwhile, persuaded teams to commit to spending nearly all of their salary cap space in cash and won changes to offseason and in-season practice rules that should make the game safer. One important compromise came on expanding the regular season from 16 to 18 games, which owners favored. That can be revisited for the 2013 season, but players must approve any change. “Both parties were trying to stand their ground — and rightfully so,” said Vikings linebacker Ben Leber, one of the 10 named plaintiffs in the players’antitrust suit against the league that will be dropped. “In the end, against all the negativity that was out there publicly, they took their time and hammered out what I think is going to turn out to be one of the best deals in the history of sports.” An interesting choice of phrase, given that Smith and some players grew fond of calling the owners’last offer before talks fell apart in March “probably the worst deal in sports history.” Smith had changed that tune Monday. “We didn’t get everything that either side wanted,” he said, “but we did arrive at a deal that we think is fair and balanced.” Activity over the next few days might have everyone’s heads spinning. On Tuesday, 2011 draft picks and rookie free agents can be signed. That will be followed by camps opening, minimal practices for the first few days, and the wild free agency period. “Chaos,” said Jets fullback Tony Richardson, a member of the NFLPA’s executive committee — and a free agent. “That’s the best word for it.” Only one exhibition game was lost: the Hall of Fame opener between the Bears and Rams, scheduled for Aug. 7 in Canton, Ohio. Otherwise, the entire preseason and regular-season schedules remain intact. “Our players can’t be more excited about going back to doing the thing they love the most,” NFLPApresident Kevin Mawae said. “We always said during this process we would do a deal when it’s right and when it’s the right deal. Our players did that. We stuck it out to the end.” Owners overwhelmingly approved a proposal to end the dispute Thursday, but some unresolved issues needed to be reviewed to satisfy players. The sides worked through the weekend and wrapped up nearly every detail by about 3 a.m. Monday on a final pact that runs through the 2020 season and can’t be terminated before then. That’s significant because the old collective bargaining agreement contained an optout clause, and owners exercised it in 2008. That led to the contract expiring when talks broke down March 11; hours later, owners locked out the players, creating the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987 — and longest in league history. “I know it has been a very long process since the day we stood here that night in March,” Smith said in a brief appearance about 20 minutes before being joined by Goodell and three owners. “But our guys stood together when nobody thought we would. And football is back because of it.” As he spoke, Smith was surrounded by some players, including Saints quarterback Drew Brees, one of 10 plaintiffs in the antitrust lawsuit that players filed against the league March 11. Two unanimous NFLPA leadership votes cleared the way for that case to be dropped and the lockout to go away: first, to recommend to the plaintiffs that they accept the settlement; second, to recommend that all 1,900 players re-establish the union. All players will take a vote to re-certify the union — it was dissolved March 11, turning the NFLPAinto a trade association — and then one more vote to approve the final CBA. It all needs to be wrapped up by Aug. 4 to make everything official, something everyone involved believes will happen without a hitch. Only once it is back to being a union can the NFLPA finish the contract, covering remaining items such as player discipline, drug testing, disability programs and pensions. The major economic framework for the deal was worked out more than a week ago. That included dividing revenue; a per-club cap of about $120 million for sala ry and bonuses in 2011 — and at least that in 2012 and 2013 — plus about $22 million fo r benefits; a salary system to rein in spending on firstround draft picks; and unrestricted free agency for mos t players after four seasons. Now, talk turns to the field. “It will be kind of crazy,” said Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, the team’s player representative. “Nobody’s been in these waters before, with free agency and so forth. Things are going to open up. It will be an interesting two weeks.” Follow Barry Wilner at http://twitter.com/wilner88 AP Pro Football Writer Howard Fendrich in Washington and Sports Writers Joseph White, Jon Krawczynski, Teresa Walker, Chris Duncan, Rachel Cohen and Richard Rosenblatt contributed to this story. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, July 27, 2011Page 3B PAGE, WILLIAM J.; 5.542"; 3"; Black; sports 7/24,27,29; 0 0 0 0 1 0 4 2 2 UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 7/27/11; 0 0 0 1 0 4 7 6 UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 7/27/11; 0 0 0 1 0 4 7 6 PAGE, WILLIAM J.; 5.542"; 3"; Black; sports 7/24,27,29; 0 0 0 1 0 4 2 2 Recreational fishers must have a saltwater fishing license and a spiny lobster permit to harvest spiny lobsters, unless they are exempt from the recreational license requirements. Harvesters also must make sure their spiny lobsters have a carapace length greater than 3 inches to take them, and divers must possess a measuring device and measure all lobsters while in the water. During the two-day spiny lobster sport season, divers and snorkelers are allowed to take up to six lobsters per person daily in Monroe County and Biscayne National Park waters and 12 lobsters per person daily in other Florida waters. Lobster fishermen may possess no more than the daily bag limit of lobsters when on the water. When lobster fishers are off the water, they may possess the daily bag limit on the first day and double the daily bag limit on the second day. Possession limits are enforced on and off the water during the two-day sport season. During the Aug. 6 through March 31 regular season, the daily recreational bag and on-the-water possession limit is six spiny lobsters per person. Night diving for spiny lobsters during the two-day sport season is not allowed in Monroe County, and all harvest of lobsters is prohibited in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park during the two-day season. If you are diving in Monroe County be sure to download the lobster fishing brochure. Lobster harvest is also prohibited at all times in Everglades National Park, Dry Tortugas National Park, Biscayne Bay/Card Sound Spiny Lobster Sanctuary, certain areas in Pennekamp Park, and no-take areas in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Divers and snorkelers are required to display a “diversdown” flag (red with a white diagonal stripe) while in the water. Divers-down flags displayed on vessels must be at least 20 inches by 24 inches, and a stiffener is required to keep the flag unfurled. Dive flags carried on floats must be at least 12 inches by 12 inches. More information on divers-down flag requirements is available online at MyFWC.com/Boating More information on recreational spiny lobster fishing, including how to measure spiny lobster, is available online at MyFWC.com/Fishing under “Saltwater Fishing.” Continued from 1B Lobsters better head for cover Consider the hundreds of draft picks that need to be signed.

By the end of which, at least a couple of ESPN football analysts will summarily collapse. The annoyance of today’s programming snub will subside. The relief that the NFL season will start on time and proceed as normal can wait. The excitement of a full offseason taking place over these next few days, however, is upon us.

The first exhibition game is Aug. 12 at Atlanta. Veteran free agents can begin signing on Friday. At the top of the Dolphins’shopping list will be a quarterback to compete with Chad Henne, and a running back to share time with rookie Daniel Thomas. Off the field, the Dolphins will try to make up ground in lagging ticket sales. Because of the lockout, Dee said, the sale of new season tickets is down 60 percent from the norm. The “community blitzes” Monday evening were a first step in the campaign to win back disenchanted fans. “There was a tremendous amount of negative energy for a while around the work stoppage,” Dee said. “In recent weeks I think we’ve seen it already begin to turn. I think we’ll be able to play catchup here.” With the labor dispute settled, the Dolphins restored employee pay reduced because of the lockout. Salaries returned to previous levels effective immediately, and all compensation withheld since reductions took effect May 15 will be returned in full in the nex t paycheck. “You learn a lot more about people in tough times than you do during times that are great,” Dee said. “Our staff was outstanding, never complained and supported the cause. It was great news to deliver to them today to restore compensation back to traditional levels.” Regarding the labor deal that ended a 4 1/2-month lockout, Dee said everybody won. “We believe this was a fair outcome,” he said. “The game is positioned for longterm prosperity.” Continued from 1B Dolphins seek QB, RB, fans Continued from 1B NFL lockout over, chaos to get ready for season begins

Everyone enjoys this worthy mission that assists us in providing packages for our troops stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq. Monday morning we had our coed coffee meeting. Our hostesses were Jean and Robert Noyes, who provided the residents with a variety of doughnuts in honor of Wil Noel and Jean Noyes birthday. Our emcee was Andy Anderson. Many of our residents have headed north hoping to find cooler weather, however throughout the states many are experiencing weather hotter than ours. Andy read the names of residents celebrating their birthday from July 17-24. Although we had 13 residents listed during this week, we only had one very special lady present to sing Happy Birthday to. We all sang to Jean Noyes. We had no one celebrating their wedding anniversary during this time. Andy thanked Laura Bailie for accompanying us on the piano. Bonnie Allen gave the Sunshine report. We were all saddened to hear that Bonnie Keie passed away. Wil Noel is in the hospital in the Fort Lauderdale area. Rosie and Jim Witten went to visit him and said he looks well and is in good spirits. We need to keep Wil and his wife Carol in our prayers. Congratulations go our to Wendy and Maria Hagg, on the birth of their granddaughter. Before ending the meeting our emcee told everyone a story while he was serving aboard ship in the Navy just because he asked for a cup of coffee. It was a real funny experience. Tuesday at Ladies Coffee we only had nine women attend the meeting, which is not unusual when we have Ladies Day Out. Coffee was made by Bonnie Allen. We all sang Happy Birthday to Jean Noyes. Sunshine report we have Ed Cromer who is having surgery on the 20th. Marilyn told the group that she received a huge banner from the police department for the National Night Out, which is the early evening of Aug. 2. It is called Community Partnership. Our residents will bring a covered dish or dessert. Members of the police department will cook the meat. It is going to be a fun evening so plan to offer our support and attend Before ending the meeting, Arlene Clouston told a little story that gives us something to think about. Asmall stone looked up to God and asked Him, “What am I here for?” God replied in one simple sentence, “To be a stepping stone for others that need your help”. Today we had eight men attend their luncheon at the Caddy Shack Restaurant in Sebring. According to Charlie Price, the guys had such a good time they are thinking about having lunch out twice a month. Our ladies Day Out was held at the Twin Oaks Tea Room in Sebring. We had 25 ladies attend. Our hostess in charge of arrangements was Arlene Clouston. Prior to the luncheon she asked the ladies to wear something on their attire that had flowers on it. While the meal was being prepared she gave them a little game called “Blooming Flower Quiz”. They all seemed to enjoy themselves. What really added to our theme was the fresh flowers on each table by the owners of the restaurant. I told the ladies that they were all flowers to me in my imaginary garden. When the meal was served we all bowed our heads and said a prayer in our own way. Weall enjoyed being together and the fellowship of the day.

C M Y K Associated PressOSLO, Norway — The self-described perpetrator of the mass killings in Norway told authorities there that he expects to spend the rest of his life in prison but two other cells in his terror network could still launch attacks, officials said Monday. Anders Behring Breivik has admitted bombing Norway’s capital and opening fire on a political youth group retreat, but he entered a plea of not guilty, saying he acted to save Europe from Muslim immigration. Prosecutor Christian Hatlo told reporters that Breivik was very calm and “seemed unaffected by what has happened.” He said Breivik told investigators during his interrogation that he never expected to be released. Breivik alluded to two other “cells” in a network he describes as a new Knights Templar, the medieval crusaders who protected Christian pilgrims in the Holy Land. At one point, a manifesto he released shortly before the attack briefly refers to an intention to contact two other cells — a term he says refers to “small, autonomous groups” led by individual commanders. Police announced, meanwhile, that they had dramatically overcounted the number of people slain in a shooting spree at a political youth group’s island retreat and were lowering the confirmed death toll from 86 to 68. The overall toll in the attack now stands at 76 instead of 93. Police spokesman Oystein Maeland said that higher, erroneous figure emerged as police and rescuers were focusing on helping survivors and securing the area, but he did not immediately explain more about how the overcounting occurred. Police also raised the toll from a bombing outside the government’s headquarters in Oslo before the shooting spree, from seven to eight. The dramatic reduction in death toll adds to a list of police misteps: They took 90 minutes arrive at the island from the first shot, and people who called emergency services have reported being told by operators to stay off the lines unless they’re calling about the Oslo bombings. Peaceful, liberal Norway has been stunned by the bombing in downtown Oslo and the shooting massacre at a youth camp outside the capital, which the suspect said were intended to start a revolution to inspire Norwegians to retake their country from Muslims and other immigrants. He blames liberals for championing multiculturalism over Norway’s “indigenous” culture. By SHAWN POGATCHNIK Associated PressOSLO, Norway — Confessed terrorist Anders Behring Breivik hoped to trigger a nationalist revolution in Norway. But his double act of mass murder and destruction seems to have stirred only dignified defiance in this wealthy, idealistic nation renowned for its commitment to peace. The capital’s heart remains shattered and cordoned off following Friday’s car-bomb blast. Communities up and down this sparsely populated land of fir forests and mistshrouded fjords have yet to bury their 76 loved ones, mostly slain as Breivik gunned down defenseless teens and young adults at an island retreat of the governing Labor Party. But families, workmates and communities are already coming together to discuss the need for Norway to protect the best of what it is — a tolerant society open to the world. Many even express a paradoxical sense of relief that it was a local, not an alQaida outsider, who sought to turn their well-ordered world upside down. “These quite unimaginable attacks have challenged our national character, but they will not be able to alter our national characteristics,” said Geir Lundestad, director of the Nobel Institute that helps select the winner of each year’s Peace Prize in Oslo. “Even in these terrible days we have seen some of our sense of openness, democracy, equality come to the fore. Even our king and queen show they are one of us, they weep with the rest of the country,” Lundestad told The APin an interview. Whereas other nations struck by terror have responded quickly with heavy security-force deployments and clampdowns on civil liberties, that is not apparent in Norway today. What remains so striking to a foreign visitor is how calm, and how easily accessible, Norwegian citizens and institutions remain. Those arriving at Norway’s airports still face only perfunctory ID checks. The pairs of soldiers who guard roads on the perimeter of Friday’s central Oslo blast zone appear to be the absolute minimum that Western societies typically deploy in the wake of a terrorist attack. Perhaps most surprisingly, leaders of the government and the royal family continue to visit the scenes of greatest tragedy — the bomb zone, hospitals, hotels where parents still await news of their missing child — with barely a cop or bodyguard in sight. The security buffer between the ruling elite and common man appears nonexistent. Instead, it is the public at large that has mobilized in support of the forces of reason, moderation and sharing the burden of grief. Central Oslo florists struggled Monday to maintain supplies as long lines formed outside. “It will take a long time for people to grasp the vastness of this atrocity. But people are seeking answers together. They are seeking the community of others, the warmth and support of each other,” said the Rev. Carl Petter Opsahl in the square beside Oslo Cathedral. He spoke shortly after more than 10,000 people crowded into the spot, beside a sea of floral bouquets and hand-written tributes to the innocent dead, to observe a minute’s silence. The sea of faces included Oslo citizens of every color and faith, reflecting the rapid demographic shifts under way as Norway’s liberal government offers an open door to asylum-seekers from war-torn parts of Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Today about a tenth of Norway’s 4.9 million residents are foreign-born and around 5 percent Muslim, still far below the norm for Europe. Most, particularly those from predominantly Muslim nations, have arrived since the mid-1990s — a sudden shift that the profoundly Islamophobic writings of 32-year-old Breivik denounced as something to be feared and fought. Many Norwegians concede this is the key fault line lying deep, and until now dormant, beneath their society. But last week’s atrocity may also cause Norwegians to rethink hardening attitudes towards Muslims in their midst. “We would be looking today at a truly unstabilized Norway if the attacks had been committed by a heavily bearded al-Qaida activist who had just been offered asylum here. But no, our true demon turns out to be this clean-cut middle-class boy from the suburbs of Oslo, a 100 percent product of Norway,” said Thomas Hylland Eriksen, an anthropologist at the University of Oslo who is expert in the forces of multiculturalism in modern Norway. He said those right-wing extremists who, like Breivik, seek “a trip back in time to the racial purity of pre-war Norway” will now likely face far greater police scrutiny. “At least I hope so.” Lundestad of the Nobel Committee noted that while left-wing Labor has dominated Norway’s governments since World War II, around a quarter of citizens in opinion polls express “very strong views against immigration, particularly from Muslim countries.” But he said there was nothing to prepare Norway for its version of American anti-government extremists such as “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski or Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. “If you had asked me in advance whether this act of epic violence could have happened in Norway, and be committed by a seemingly normal Norwegian, I would say this impossible,” he said. The country’s secondlargest party, right-wing Progress, offers the major public platform for antiMuslim views but has never won enough votes to form a government. It likewise has condemned the actions of Breivik, a one-time party member who wrote of his alienation that it wasn’t hard-line enough. Opsahl, who helps run an interdenominational Christian mission in central Oslo with strong involvement from new immigrants, said he believes members of racial minority groups could have faced assaults on the street had Friday’s attacks been the work of Muslim extremists. He said a few Muslim men were roughed up in the immediate aftermath of the bombing before news bulletins started reporting the blond, blue-eyed appearance of the arrested Utoya Island gunman. “As a citizen of Oslo, it’s a relief that the attacker was Norwegian. It would become very difficult to be a Muslim or an immigrant in Oslo if it had been committed by alQaida or the like,” Opsahl said. Lundestad said while security measures would be beefed up around government buildings and leaders, the impact of Breivik’s terror would be limited on daily life. “If this violence had been Islamic-related, the security and political debate in Norway would be entirely different,” he said. “There would be a massive support for harsher measures towards the Islamic world and immigrants. “But how do we guard against future acts by a seemingly normal Norwegian?

Drinks and dishes are full of flavor and come in smaller portions, so guests can mix and match little bites and mouthwatering sips all night long. These recipes from America’s best chefs and bartenders make use of an unexpected, wholesome ingredient — pure maple syrup from Canada. This all-natural syrup adds a hint of sweetness and depth of flavor that makes each cocktail pairing shine. Maple syrup is a healthy and tasty pick when choosing a sweetener. It comes directly from tree sap and has a wide range of nutrients and antioxidants not found in other sweeteners. According to the University of Rhode Island, maple syrup from Canada features 54 antioxidants, some of which are similar to those found in super foods like berries, tea, red wine and flaxseed. Visit www.purecanadamaple.com, become a fan of Canada Maple Syrup on Facebook, or follow @PureCanadaMaple on Twitter for more recipes to redo your happy hour and cook with maple. CookingwithMapleSyrupMaple syrup comes in different grades. Syrup made from sap tapped at the beginning of harvest is clearer and more delicate in taste. As the season advances, maple syrup becomes darker and more intense in flavor. The natural sweetener offers a variety of flavor components, including nutty, vanilla, coffee, caramel and floral notes. Grade Amaple syrup is meant for everyday use and can easily be found at the grocery store. Curious how to use the different grades of maple syrup for cooking? Grade ALight works well in salad vinaigrettes, and Grade AMedium or Dark taste delicious on breads or as a rub on meats. All pure maple syrup grades are a great substitute for sugar or simple syrup in cocktails or non-alcoholic drinks.

C M Y K This time of year everyone is writing articles on how to get the children ready to go back to school. I know this is an important topic for you but we have left out the main person who has to get the children ready for the first day of school; you! You are the one that has to get up and get the family moving each morning. It is your responsibility to make sure they go to bed and get the rest they need to have a productive day. Your summer has been filled with a happy-go-lucky spirit. No one really had a bed time or their alarm set for morning. Then when it came to mealtime; everyone just ate whatever they could find when they got hungry. What happened to the structure in our day? What happened to our routines? If we are going to expect our children to jump on the routine bandwagon then we better be there leading the way; not just barking the orders. We teach best by our example. Not just a simple do as I do, but an example that is set in love and from the heart. If you are not taking care of yourself; you are not going to be able to take care of your family and show them the value of routines. Most of our lives we have run around putting out fires just to stay on top of housework, bills, jobs and the responsibilities of parenting. If you are a born organized person these things do not take a toll on you, but if you tend to get sidetracked then you know about putting out fires. Aborn organized person just gets things done and the people around them do not even know that it has been done. If you were raised by a born organized person you have experienced this for yourself when you got your own place. Wasn’t it a shock when the toilet started to grow things? Who knew that it was cleaned on a regular basis? If you are this born organized person I am not putting you down. All I am saying is your children don’t know that this is what is happening. So when you tell them to go clean the bathroom or their bedroom they have no clue. Mainly because it was just easier for you to do it yourself than to show them that there actually is a routine to housecleaning and most things in life. For the other 80 percent of us that are not born organized there is hope. We can learn to be organized. Imagine that. Taking the methods that a born organized person does naturally and using them to help us gain control over our homes and lives and in the end give our children the tools to go out into the world on their own. Born organized people can’t even teach us sidetracked people what they do, because they have never had to figure it out; they just do it. I have watched the people in my life that are born organized and what I have noticed is they tend to do the same thing in the same order every single morning. At first I thought that must be so boring and then I realized that it was brilliant. The brilliance comes from having the mundane things in life taken care of so you can have fun. Isn’t that what all of us really want; to have a little fun? We love fun and most of the time we are having fun; except when we are beating ourselves up because the kids are late to school again because you overslept. It is time for us to go to school and learn something that will help us enjoy life without the guilt we place on ourselves. Our children are a reflection of what is going on in us. They feel our stress levels because of our lack of routines. If you want to see a change in your children’s behavior, please establish your routines. They will feel more secure because they will know what is next in their day. My friend Alice Wellborn has written a great book to help you get back into your routines; No More Parents Left Behind. You can get your copy on her website. She has been a school psychologist for 30 years. This woman knows what works for our children. http://www.nomoreparentsleftbehind.com/ When we fly by the seat of our pants, our children don’t have the consistency of routines as their foundation. If we look closely, we may see the same behavior problems in ourselves. With school just around the corner it’s time to get ourselves back into our routines just to save our sanity and give our children the best education possible. For more help getting rid of your CHAOS, check out her website and join her free mentoring group atwww.FlyLady.net or her book, Sink Reflections published by Random House and her New York Times Best Selling book, Body Clutter published by Simon and Schuster. Copyright 2011 Marla Cilley Used by permission in this publication. Dear Abby: There’s a venomous old woman who roams through our neighborhood looking for victims to embarrass, humiliate or annoy. She told a neighbor’s 11-year-old granddaughter she looked like a slut because she was wearing shorts currently in fashion for the young. She habitually cuts in front of people in line at the supermarket, puts 25 items on the 15-item service line, etc. Anew neighbor thought she should be treated with a little kindness. She had her opportunity recently when we were out to breakfast at a restaurant. The harridan sat alone (her husband refuses to be seen in public with her), and my friend commented to her on the beautiful day. Her response? “Don’t waste my time with meaningless inanities!” She then proceeded to abuse the server by repeatedly sending her plate back, each time becoming more unpleasant. The girl ended up in tears. At that point, my friend walked over and said quietly, “I hope you don’t think your advanced age justifies your meanness.” The witch accused my friend of “slandering” her and left vowing never to return. This elicited a round of applause from the customers and staff. Why do some people go through life behaving so outrageously? How can she derive satisfaction from being so hateful? – Puzzled in San Diego DearPuzzled: Ruling out the idea that the person you have described may be mentally disturbed, it’s possible she may be so unhappy in her personal life that she’s trying to make herself feel better by abusing others. She’s a sad case. I’d like to think that when the other diners applauded, it was directed in support of your friend rather than at the disagreeable woman as she left the restaurant. DearAbby: I am a 34year-old man, I have been divorced for a couple of years and have no children. I have been dating an incredible woman, “Nikki,” who is a bit older than I am. She has three children. The elephant in the room has always been whether or not Nikki would want more children. We finally discussed it, and she confirmed that she does not. She said she’s looking forward to the next phase of her life as her kids get older, which I understand. That conversation has led to a break in our relationship. We haven’t spoken for the past two weeks, and it seems like two years. I am struggling with what to do. I have always wanted to be a dad. Would being a stepdad be as fulfilling for me? Is being in a good relationship more important? Having kids doesn’t automatically make things great, right? Could I find someone as wonderful as Nikki, but who wants to have a kid? Abby, I’m conflicted, and you’re the only one I could think of for advice. – Jumbled in New Hampshire DearJumbled: Only you can decide whether being a stepfather to Nikki’s children would be enough for you. For some men, it would be. For others, it wouldn’t be enough. Of course, the primary relationship must be between the husband and wife. Children grow up, leave and establish lives of their own. And you’re right, having kids doesn’t “automatically” make things great if there is trouble in the relationship. While there are no guarantees you will find someone as wonderful as Nikki, the odds are very good that you will meet a woman – or more than one – whose goals are similar to yours and who would love to have a family with you. But it won’t happen until you firmly decide exactly what you want. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Wednesday, July 27, 2011 FAMILYFEATURES Warm weather is synonymous with trips to the beach, baseball games and summer vacations. While enjoying these outings, you may find yourself tempted by hot dogs, ice cream and other summer indulgences. Abusy schedule, combined with tempting summer treats, could throw off your healthy eating routine. Registered Dietitian Robin Kline, MS, RD, CCP, offers three simple tips for how to stay healthy throughout the season. “Planning ahead is your best strategy to stay on track for great summertime eating,” said Kline. “Whether it’s visiting the farmers market for fresh, seasonal produce or packing healthy snacks for on-the-go, being prepared results in smart eating.” Think Simple. No one wants to spend time in a hot kitchen preparing meals on a nice summer day. Finding quick, healthy meal options that can be prepared in 20 minutes or less will provide you with more time to spend outdoors enjoying the warm weather. Ahealthy salad that contains a rainbow of nutrients is easy to prepare and helps you avoid turning on the oven. Think Fresh. Many delicious fruits are in season during the summer, including peaches, berries and melons. Fresh fruits are naturally sweet, a good source of vitamins and are easy for on-the-go eating. Eat them alone as a snack, blend into a smoothie or create a breakfast parfait with berries, granola and cottage cheese. Think Healthy. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) states that the amount of protein needed in the average American diet depends on gender, age and level of physical activity, but recommends selecting a variety of lean sources of protein. Fish high in omega-3 fatty acids are a good lean protein source, while cottage cheese and legumes are great options for adding variety. Cottage cheese is a versatile option that can be incorporated into a number of different recipes. Daisy Brand Low Fat Cottage Cheese is 100 percent natural with only four ingredients, a good source of calcium, lower in sodium than many other brands and an excellent source of protein with 14 grams per half-cup serving. By following these few easy tips, you can enjoy summer with the peace of mind that you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The following recipes are great starters for summertime foods.
