County Administrator Ricky Helms proposed the sale of asphalt to the municipalities and companies who are doing projects within the county. No exact cost was set during the meeting and Helms said that the costs would vary based on production runs. The materials that go into the production, the cost of the Board of County Commissioners and the service of the debt will all be included in the cost to the municipalities, Helms said.

The cuts were not on the agenda during the budget review meeting, but Commissioner Don Elwell asked the board to consider r educing the amount set aside f or County Attorney Ross M acbeth during the final m inutes of the meeting. The cuts originally prop osed by Elwell added up to an approximately $80,000 savings in the budget. Currently his litigation budget is $90,000 and he is at $31,625 and is trending at $42,000. His contract is currently at $162,000 trending towards $216,000, Elwell s tated. T he county budget for just c ontractual services in 201112 was set at $355,499, and Elwell felt that the extra from the two line items was not necessary. I am suggesting a 4 or 5 percent increase over what he is tracking for the year and it is still an $80,000 savings Elwell stressed. B oard Chairwoman Barbara Stewart disagreed w ith Elwells suggesting, and argued to leave the litigation and contractual budget at thep roposed rates.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comA VON PARK Members of the three chambers of commerce gathered Friday at the Jacaranda Hotel to sharea meal and meet several u nusual students, all of whom are a part of the Panther Youth program. They attend local high schools, or the career academy, and somea lready take courses at South Florida Community College. Panther Youth has served young people between the ages of 16 and 21 for 15 years. T he program is funded by a grant from the Heartland W orkforce Investment Board. Its goal is to show students the wide range of careero ptions existing in the world today and prepare them for t he adult business world by teaching them, among many things, basic etiquette, how to dress for the workplace and public speaking. S mall stipends are available to pay for things like the c ost of taking the SATs. Students meet business people, take twoand three-w eek specialized courses throughout the year, do volu nteer work and meet weekly with a mentor. Jennifer Swygard is enteri ng her senior year at Sebring High School and her second year with the program. She s aid, They provide the best opportunities nobody would k now about otherwise, and push you out there to do it. Friday, as part of the program, four young ladies had to stand and address chambero f commerce members. Each spoke on a topic of particular interest to them, and came prepared with notes on index cards. In her speech, which was a tribute to Oprah Winfrey and rising above poverty, shes aid, It is important to know that no matter what comes y our way, you are in control of how you react. You choose success, its you. Swygard plans on attending Southeast University, aC hristian school, and work as a Biblical counselor. H onestee Wynn is interested in an entirely different field. She plans on studyinga nimal science and work with exotic animals. Her message w as that the entire community has to work together to prevent child abuse. Thee ffects of that abuse, she said, are mind crippling and life changing. S hontonia Williams will be a senior at Avon Park High S chool when school starts. She plans on becoming a psychoanalyst. Friday she spoke about pollution and dwindling nat-u ral resources, and how people can help by recycling. She said, Recycling significantly reduces the harmful effects to the environment, therefore every comm unity should press to have its residents recycle. By maki ng more facilities available and by raising awareness, more people will recycle. One community starts a domino effect that leads to al arge number of materials being saved. Angie Rodriquez, entering her senior year at Sebring High School, is focused on becoming a nurse. Her s peech reflected that interest, addressing the issue of how d isabled students are treated by teachers and fellow students. The topic is of special interest to her, because herb rother is autistic She wants to see a program developed for parents, teachers and students to help them overcome their fears of those who are different.

Right now shes a senior at Sebring High School Panther Youth students speak to chamber members about their goals It has got to be part of the budget. We would just be moving it from the board budget to contingency Stewart argued. I understand that, but we n eed to find some middle ground somewhere. We are o ver-funding this by $80,000, Elwell said. But, thats it. You cannot p ut it another budget to be spent. So whats the point? S tewart asked. What do you do if all of a sudden you get hit with lawsuits? I dont want $80,000 in a budget that doesnt need t o be when I am cutting service, cutting jobs and it c ould help somewhere else, Elwell countered. Stewart continued to a rgue that the cuts could affect contingency funds, b ut when asked, Tim Mechlin of the countys Office of Budget andM anagement stated that more than $350,000 out a reserve of $850,000 was s till available in contingency. I think weve got the $80,000 there, Elwell said. Just so we know that it is not going to affect the budget by just putting iti nto contingency, Stewart said. Why dont we hear from Mr. Macbeth and Mr. Helms, Stewart said, turning the discussion over to the individual who would d irectly benefit from any b udget changes. M acbeth pointed out th a t t he board has gone out to c ontingency once over the past 20 years to fund litigation. The downtrend in buildi ng permits and planning a re finally showing. I would expect that to continue int he next two years, M acbeth said. Macbeth himself recomm ended $250,000 in his c ontractual services and $50,000 in litigation, resulting in the $55,499 budget savings. I would expect that to be relatively safe, Macbeth said. ou feel comfortable with the $300,000, especially with the significant projects we have planned? Stewart asked Macbeth. Macbeth assured Stewart t hat Elwells projections w ere accurate as long as the e ntire budget, litigation and c ontractual needs, stayed around $300,000. S tewart insisted that an a dditional $40,000 be placed in contingency. e dont have anything right now, but boy that can change in a minute, Stewart said. I just want to make sure that when Rick does his budget, that there is enough earmarked for that.

C M Y K Transparency in government can sometimes bep ainful and embarrassing in the short term, but history has shown that when the people are informed, they make appropriate choices and arem ore engaged in their government. It is a necessary element is any democracy. A long comes Don Elwell, who announced during his campaign that he woulde ncourage transparency in government if elected to the b oard of commissioners. Elwell stated that his mission was to foster discussion and to create transparency. His Facebook wall is full oft housands of comments and responses about everything from county tourism to views on the national debt policy. Elwell tries to corral the d iscussion, but dang that free speech, some people will just talk about the first thing thatc omes to mind. But so far Elwell has used Facebook to poll, kick-start conversationsa nd inform the public during a tough budget season. R eading Elwells page is thought provoking for anyone who wishes to openly discuss local government. The posts have generated some excellent ideas as well as crackpots olutions to how to deal with decreasing revenues and increasing costs. Elwell has even convinced county staff to start aF acebook page to do the same concept from an official standpoint. The Board of County Commissions staff, withE lwells help, has started its own social experiment in their own words to provide accu-r ate information about county issues. From time to time this p age is going to have informational items to make the citiz ens of Highlands County more aware of how the County operates, states the seventh of about 15 posts. The first and second post simply say Test and Test 2. J ust like Elwells Facebook page, the countys official Facebook entries include hot links to the budget, meeting notices and one bulldog that isa vailable for adoption. Further comparison shows that Elwell has 776 friends who regularly view and sometimes post, while theH ighlands County Board of County Commissions has just two members listed. M aybe thats because the BOCC experiment has only been active since July 7 andE lwells has been around since last October, or maybe i s because the BOCC stated public information mission is to convert passive consumers of public services into responsible, supportive citizens. S ince when do citizens need to be converted? M aybe they meant convinced. Despite the differences, both pages are striving to inform, each in their own way,a nd when elected officials and government agencies inform, t hats a good thing. Its the results that may vary.

Grochowski is the regional commissioner for Social Security with an office in Atlanta. Beat the heat; go online Guest Column Michael W. Grochowski A fourth option for ChoiceEditor: I would like to add a fourth option for Choice and the county. The option is quite simple. Its that you do your job just exactly as you do it now. There will be no changes except youll dump in a different part of the same landfill. You will not charge any extra for this service nor will you get a contract extension as you are under contract now. Heres how it will work: You will continue to come to my home on Monday and collect my garbage that I set out. You will transport that to a county landfill just as you and every other company has since 1990. Then on Thursday you will come to my home, just as you are required, and pick up my bags again. These bags will contain my recycled items, which is of no concern to you. None whatsoever. Unless something illegal is in those bags you have no rights about collecting them. The difference will be instead of taking it up the hill. You will take it to a new spot. One which the county staff will get off its duff and provide for you, something which should have been done before now. This represents one of the largest taxes that you pay in the county and, folks, no matter what you call it, its a tax. I know I was the one who suggested it in the committee in 1989. The county has allowed for things in this department to change for the worse and if they continue with this plan and its three options it will get even worse than now. Should the county not be able to do its job in solid waste collection any more, then perhaps they should consider getting out of the business. They are, believe it or not, the controlling party in your collection. I realize it doesnt look like it but its true folks. Now commissioners, grow some and tell staff what you expect and tell Choice that they can do their job for the same money or leave and well use their bond money to purchase our own trucks. Folks no matter what they try to tell you. This was the easiest job I ever had in my life; I was the manager for one of the companies when we started this in 1990. I served on both solid waste committees and so I have a wee bit of knowledge in this area. The short story is very simple indeed; Dear homeowners and business owners, bend over Ray Napper SebringBe careful what you wish forEditor: Now that the Tea Party Republicans in the house have finished giving themselves high-fives, it is time to examine the fruit of their labors. Arguing for massive cuts in governmental spending without specifying which branches of government should be cut and why, they put me in mind of the tailors who cut their cloth before measuring the customer, whose suit they were making. Ignoring the time honored adage to measure twice, cut once, they have attacked the budget process on the front end, insisting on massive cuts in spending, no increase in revenues and expect as if by magic, a smaller, more efficient, less costly government. What we can expect? For one, an FAAwithout revenue, air safety in jeopardy, tax revenue on airlines lost. For the future; a less efficient FBI, less efficient TSAwith increased risk of terrorism, less enforcement and reduced scrutiny in SEC and stock markets, creating more opportunity for the Maddoffs and Enrons of the future. Add to this a reduction in Social Security benefits, Medicare coverage, unemployment compensation and related benefits while reducing tax liabilities for the ultra wealthy and big corporations and no closure of obvious tax loopholes enjoyed by these groups and you have a pretty good road map for the future; that is for openers.

The vote was 74-26. Tuesdays vote capped an extraordin arily difficult Washington battle pitting tea party Republican forces in the House against Obama and Democrats controlling the Senate. The resulting compromise paired an essential increase in theg overnments borrowing cap with promises of more than $2 trillion of budget cuts over the next decade. Much of the measure, which the House passed Monday night, was negotiated on terms set by House Speaker JohnB oehner, including a demand that any increase in the nations borrowing cap be m atched by spending cuts. But the legislation also meets demands made by Obama, including debt-limit increases large enough to keep the government funded into 2013 and curbs on growth oft he Pentagon budget. eve had to settle for less than we wanted, but what weve achieved is in no way insignificant, said Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. But I think it was the view of those inm y party that wed try to get as much spending cuts as we could from a governm ent we didnt control. And thats what weve done with this bipartisan agreement. Many supporters of the legislation lamented what they saw as flaws and thei ntense partisanship from which it was forged. In the end, it was a lowest-common-denominators approach that puts off tough decisions on tax increases and cuts to entitlement programs like Medicare. What troubles me about it is that the bipartisan compromise also represents a kind of bipartisan agreement by each party to yield to the other partys most politically and ideologically sensitivep riority, said Joseph Lieberman, IConn. In the case of Democrats, its to protect entitlement spending. ... In the case of Republicans, its to not raise taxes. The measure would provide an immed iate $400 billion increase in the $14.3 trillion U.S. borrowing cap, with $500 b illion more assured this fall.

C M Y K By PABLO GORONDI Associated PressO il prices fell to near $94 a barrel Tuesday in Europe as w orries over the state of the U.S. economy overshadowed a deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling, a move that avoids the risk of a debt default. B y early afternoon in Europe, benchmark oil for September delivery was down 80 cents at $94.09 a barrel in electronic trading ont he New York Mercantile Exchange. Crude fell 81 cents to settle at $94.89 on Monday. In London, Brent crude was down 45 cents at $116.36 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange. The threat of U.S. insolvency would appear to have been averted, but the worry now is the countrys economy, said analysts at Commerzbank in Frankfurt. Ajump in the oil price Monday sparked by an agreement to raise the U.S. debt limit and cut spending fizzled as traders focused in on a particularly weak manufacturing survey. The Institute for Supply Management said manufacturing activity in the U.S. barely grew in July, stoking fears that the worlds largest economy may be heading back to recession. The soft patch is getting patchier still, HSBC economist Frederic Neumann said. The message from the U.S. and Europe is that the industrial sector has decelerated further T he U.S. economy is already growing fairly slowly. Figures last week showed that it grew at an annualized 1.3 percent in the second quarter. First quarter growth was also revised down to 0.4 percent from 1.9 percent. After seeing the horrible GDPnumber and revision last week, there are a lot more concerns about where this economy is headed, energy analyst and trader Blue Ocean Brokerage said in a report. Markets are also on the watch for the latest reports on U.S. stockpiles of crude and refined products. Data for the week ending Oct. 1 is expected to showb uilds of 2 million barrels in crude oil stocks and a rise of 3 50,000 barrels in gasoline stocks, according to a survey of analysts by Platts, the energy information arm of McGraw-Hill Cos. T he American Petroleum Institute will release its report on oil stocks later Tuesday, while the report from the EnergyD epartments Energy Information Administration the market benchmark will be out on Wednesday. raders will try to find solace in this weeks DOE statistics, but they might not find any, U.S. energy consultant Cameron Hanover said in a report. The picture is starting to become more bearish, with the economy looking quite weak. In other Nymex trading, heating oil fell 1.48 cents to $3.0826 a gallon while gasoline dropped 1.6 cents to $3.0380 a gallon. Natural gas futures gained 1.3 cents at $4.201 per 1,000 cubic feet.

Consumer spending d ropped 0.2 percent in June, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Some of the decline was caused by declining food and energy prices, which had spiked in recentm onths. When excluding spending on those items, cons umer spending was flat. Incomes rose 0.1 percent, the weakest growth sinceS eptember. Many people are responding by saving more. T he personal savings rate rose to 5.4 percent of aftertax incomes, the highest level since August 2010. The data confirmed last w eeks report that showed the economy expanded at a tepid a nnual rate of 1.3 percent in the spring after only 0.4 percent growth in the first threem onths of the year. But it also highlighted that cons umer spending weakened during the April-June quarter, which could mean the slug-g ish economy is worsening. Stock futures were trading lower after the report was r eleased. The recent run of weak e conomic news has made us more concerned that any rebound will be more modest than previously looked like-l y, said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics, High gas prices and unemployment have squeezedh ousehold budgets this spring. Many Americans are cutting back on purchases of cars, furniture, appliances and electronics. Consumers pending is closely watched because it accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. Employers have responded by reducing hiring. The economy added just 18,000 netj obs in June, the fewest in nine months. The unemploym ent rate rose to 9.2 percent, the highest level this year. The government issues its J uly employment report on Friday. T he biggest drop in spending occurred in such items as food and gasoline. Spending on such non-durable goods fell 5.5 percent, reflectingp rice declines after spikes early this year. An inflation g auge tied to consumer spending dropped 0.2 percent in June, the biggest one-m onth decline since September 2009. Outside of f ood and energy, prices were up 0.1 percent. Still, spending on durable g oods, such as autos, also fell in June 1.1 percent. One reason for the decline may be t he shortage of popular car models in showrooms. S upply chain disruptions caused by the March earthquake in Japan have limited production of auto and elec-t ronic parts. Many analysts are still hopeful that growth will rebound in the second half of the year. They expect autop roduction and sales to pick up once supply chain disruptions ease. But the turnaround may not come for a while.M anufacturers had their weakest growth in two years in July, according to the Institute for Supply Management. The private trade group of p urchasing executives said that its index of manufacturi ng activity fell to 50.9 percent in July from 55.3 percent in June. The reading wast he lowest since July 2009 one month after the recession o fficially ended. And gas prices remain high, even after coming down from their peak of nearly $4 a gallon in early May. Thea verage price for a gallon was $3.70 on Tuesday 14 c ents higher than a month ago and almost a dollar more than the same month lasty ear. Some economists have b egun to trim their forecasts for the second half of the year. Dales and his col-l eagues at Capital Economics have cut their outlook for second half growth to 2 perc ent, down from a previous forecast of 2.5 percent g rowth in the second half of this year. Americans cut spending for first time in 20 months Oil falls to near $94 a barrel as US economy weakens The picture is starting to become more bearish, with the economy looking quite weak.CAMERONHANOVER U.S. energy consultant Follow the News-Sun on www.twitter.com/thenewssun www.facebook.com/newssun and

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIts an aspiration shes h ad since her grade school days, in a sport she was born i nto. But former Sebring standout Megan Wolfe is having a harder time of it these days, as her litany of injuries have forced her to temper her quest for the time being. Ive always had a love for the water and swimming is sort of in my blood, she said. My dads mom was one of the first Water Safety Instructors in Highlands County, so the water is like s econd nature for my family And so the journey began. I started competing when I was 3-years old, thought I didnt go to many meets at that age, Wolfe said. But as I grew, I realized I was a very competit ive person, which I get from both my parents, and the thing about swimming is that it all depends on me and not anyone else. If I want to get better it is up to me. And so under the guidance of her father, area swimming guru Marvin, Wolfe certainly got better, though there were bumps along the way, physically. As a manager of a volleyball team in sixth grade, she tore her right shoulder labrum. The injury healed, in the short term, and her high s chool career was nothing short of spectacular, where she qualified for state in the 50 Free all four years, taking seventh as a junior and thirds as both a sophomore a nd senior and setting numerous school time records along the way. B uilding upon her success, Wolfe was offered a scholarship to restart the Daytona State College swimming program and saw that even her years of hard training were nothing compared to what she faced at the next level. I went from a max of 5,000 yards of swimming a day to 14,000 yards, she said. Plus weight training and dryland. But even as she had this whole new workload to adjust to, Wolfe had an immediate impact. She brought home seven medals from the National Junior College Athletic Association championships her freshman year, four as part of relay teams, all of which came in second, and three individually. Wolfe took fifth in the 100 Free, and third in both the 50 and 200 Free, helping the womens team to ano verall third-place finish. And the hard work and b usy schedule helped her in the classroom as well. I was able to keep a balance better than I thought I would, she said. I was actually in bed by 9 every night, which was good because I had to be up at 5 every morning. But then, heading into what should have been a banner sophomore year, the injury bug came back to bite her. The bad right shoulder w as bad again and as a result of compensating fori t, perhaps, her left shoulder started giving her problems. Its mostly inside. The front, back, top and side well, pretty much everywhere, she said. The left shoulder is giving me problems too, but I cant do anything for that until the right one is fixed. And so, its back home for this coming school year, where Wolfe will have the time to heal while taking classes online at FloridaG ulf Coast. She received her A ssociate of Arts in Sports Nutrition and will be contin-u ing in Health Science as she envisions working with athletes with her goal to be a With the dog days of summer upon us, its hard to think about hunting. But if youre between the ages of 16 and 36, and havent yet taken the states hunter safety class nows just the time to be thinking about it. Many of these classes, offered statewide, fill up fast during hunting season while people scramble to get certified. Summer months offer smaller class sizes and offer a better opportunity for students to attend, because they often have more free time then. P eople 16 years old or older and born after May 31, 1975, must complete the FWCs hunter safety r equirement before they can buy a Florida hunting l icense. T here is an exception though. Alaw passed a few years ago that allows individuals to hunt under the supervision of a licensed hunter, 21 years old or older, without having to complete the states hunter safety certification. Its called the Hunter Safety Deferral License, and it allows those people who purchase one to hunt on a one-year trial basis. Its designed to encourage experienced hunters to teach novice hunters about our sport and is a great incentive for getting more people to give hunting a try. Individuals taking advantage of this would have to pass a hunter safety class to be eligible to buy a license and hunt the following year.

But injuries have her working her way back toward her lifelong goal. Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed linebacker Adam Hayward to a three-year contract. The team announced the deal with the unrestricted free agent on Monday. Tampa Bay coach Raheem M orris said Hayward was probably the Bucsspecial teams MVPlast year. In four seasons with the Buccaneers, Hayward has 58 kick-coverage tackles, including a team-best 20 in 2010. To make room for Hayward on the 90-man training camp roster, the Buccaneers released rookie running back Deonte Jackson. Also, Tampa Bay worked out in pads for the first time at training camp during its Monday afternoon practice. The first day of pads is always a fun one, quarterback J osh Freeman said. Youve got a lot of energy, a lot of passion. Both candidates for the starting offensive right tackle spot, Jeremy Trueblood and James Lee, are among the players not allowed to practice yet because of the new collective bargaining agreement reached last week. It is strange, Morris said. But its fine. Everybody is going to start at the same time. Well have two guys competing to start once they get an opportunity to get out there on the field. Once the CBAis fully squared away, veteran free a gents who have signed new contracts recently will be allowed to practice with their teams. Those players are currently allowed to attend team meetings, work out individually and watch but not participate in practice. Bucs re-sign LB Hayward MCTphoto Josh Freeman and the Bucs were glad to be back in pads on Monday. Wolfe working her way back See WOLFE, Page 4B Associated PressMIAMI GARDENS The Miami Dolphins drew a crowd of 10,109 to Sun Life Stadium for the teams first full-contact practice Monday night, and for the first time in four days fans seemed happy. Well, until maligned quarterback Chad Henne, who had 15 touchdowns passes and 19 interceptions last season, made a couple of bad plays. Thats when someone led a chant saying, We want Orton! That was a reference to the Dolphinsrecent interest in Denver quarterback Kyle Orton. Nevertheless, there were appreciative oohs and ahhs on long passing plays, big hits and nice moves. Fans were into it and much more enthusiastic than the small crowds Miami had at its practice facility for the first three days of practice. The first few days of training camp included the signing of former Carolina quarterback Matt Moore, the departure of linebacker Channing Crowder, and wide receiver Brandon Marshall saying he suffers from borderline personality disorder. Monday was about the on-field product. Earlier in the day, linebacker Jason Taylor, one of franchises all-time favorites as well as its leader in sacks (124 rejoined the team for his third go-round. Taylor, drafted by Miami in 1997, was traded to Washington in 2008. He returned in 2009, but played last season with the New York Jets. This guy is a tremendous closer, he makes plays at the end of games, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said. Taylor, who had five sacks for the Jets and has 132.5 for his career (tied for 9th all-time in NFL history) is expected to Dolphins draw good crowd to practice See MIAMI, Page 4B

C M Y K already hunt, I suggest you go ahead and take a hunter safety class before you turn 16. Of course, until then, you may hunt under adult supervision. You can register for a hunter safety class by going to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety or by contacting your nearest FWC regional office. Also, there are two versions for your convenience. Theres the traditional course, which is 12 hours of classroom instruction plus a four-hour field day, or you can opt for taking the online or CD-ROM version at home. But, youll still have to sign up for the skills day part. The traditional course is offered during four weekdays or on a SaturdaySunday. If you take it during the week, each session is three hours and offered after normal working hours. On the weekend, youll spend eight hours Saturday and four hours Sunday morning in the classroom. The remainder of Sunday youll move over to the shooting range to complete your certification. The first thing youll learn about in the traditional class is Floridas many hunting laws. An FWC law enforcement officer gives this introduction. Volunteer hunter safety instructors teach the remaining curriculum. Youll be taught ethics, hunter responsibility, parts of firearms, various hunting lingo and the proper way to shoot. Youll discover the differences between various bullets, calibers and gauges; how to identify game animals; and learn wildlife conservation and best management practices for native species. In addition, youll find out about outdoor survival techniques and learn how to administer first aid in the field. Archery and fundamentals of bowhunting also are taught. In your last hour in the classroom, youll be given a standardized test of true and false and multiple-choice questions. All you need is to score an 80 percent or better, and then you get to move outside to the shooting range for the field day portion. This part takes about four hours. During that time, youll get to shoot clay pigeons with a shotgun, practice your archery skills and target practice with a .22 rifle. Youll also receive a muzzleloader demonstration, where youll have the chance to shoot one if youd like. All guns, bows, targets and ammo are provided. All you have to do is take aim! After you complete the field day, youll be given your hunter safety card. At that point you can purchase a Florida hunting license and get ready for opening day. If you choose to take the hunter safety class online or by CD-ROM, youll learn all of the above-mentioned material and be given a practice test to prepare you for the last segment the skills day. Skill days take about four hours to complete. Youll learn much of what is taught during the traditional course, including hunting laws and ethics, how to handle firearms safely, when to take a shot and where to place the crosshairs. Then youll get to shoot on the range and be given the same standardized test. Register today to take a hunter safety class cause the 2011-2012 hunting season is just around the corner!

Hope to see you on the water! Sebring Kayak Tours Continued from 1B Hunter Safety classes prepare you for season collegiate swim coach. But thats a goal she can work toward for the long term. In her more immediate conscience, Wolfe has a very lofty, long-held goal in mind. My aspirations have not changed since I was in elementary school, she said. My goal is make it to the Olympics. Though she knows shes g ot a lot of work to do. I just had my shoulder manipulated on Wednesday and I am back in therapy again, she said. We are going super slow, so hopefully this will be the step that fixes my shoulder for good. I will have to start from scratch when I am allowed to start training. And when she does, she has her eye keen on what she needs to do. Id have to drop less than one second in the 50 for trials, about three in the 100, she said. Of course, I had to choose one of the hardest and most competitive sports to try and make it in. o make it, you have to h ave near a world record to qualify, Wolfe continued. Thats why the U.S. is pretty much number one in swimming. If I was from another country, I could have already m ade it. But Im an American and I am always up for a challenge. Born in the U.S.A, born to swim and now just hoping shell be able to shoulder the load. Continued from 1B Courtesy photo Megan Wolfe sports two of the slew of medals she won a s a freshman in the NJCAA championships for Daytona State College. Wolfe looks to heal eye on Olympics play in pass-rushing situations. I deally, hell be a bookend to weakside linebacker Cameron Wake, who had 14 sacks last season. M iami also signed right tackle Marc Columbo, a f ree agent from Dallas. At the very least, that m eans competition for veteran Vernon Carey, who m issed Mondays night practice. The team said Sparano gave him a personal night off. My vision for Colombo right now is to see where we are in this tackle mix, Sparano said. This guy has played a lot of football. There are a lot of different formulas right now that can go into the offensive line group.

The Sebring Police Department’s K-9 dog (J.R.) along with K-9 Officer John Garrison and Detective Paul Deshazo presented an excellent program to the club. Officer Garrison first gave a brief talk about the capabilities of the four-legged officer. Then the club members, guests and visiting Rotarians, along with restaurant patrons and staff, assembled in the parking lot of Beef ‘O Brady’s to see J.R. in action. After the demonstration it was easy to see why J.R. completed his training well ahead of schedule. You can feel safe knowing that these officers and especially J.R., are on duty. Another treat for the club at this meeting: Anumber of guests who are possibly potential members of the club. Their attendance was due to the diligent efforts of the membership committee Terry Elwood, Sarah Palone and Kristen Koetje. During the next couple of weeks, the will continue the membership drive, so anyone interested in attending, meetings are on Monday evenings at 6:15 p.m. at Beef ‘O Brady’s.

Andy Anderson was our emcee and has been for the month of July. After his usual jokes he called on our Sunshine gal, Bonnie Allen, and she listed the following convalescence: Ed Cromer, Harry Stutzman and Gil Harrington. These people need your thoughts and well wishes and prayers. We were happy to see Peggy Sue Teague back this morning after her rehab stay. It is also good to know that Carol and Will Noel are back from their vacation and Will’s unexpected hospital stay. We sang “Happy Anniversary” to John and Sylvia Fitch. It is their 61st. James Hogan announced the August date of the pancake breakfast as Aug. 6. The men are continuing the pancake breakfast all through the summer months. Evelyn Guiney said that the Tropical Harbor paper would be coming out this week. People will be able to pick their copy up in the clubhouse as the paper is not delivered during the summer months. Porch lights will be on the evening of Aug. 2 in Tropical Harbor Estates. It is the National Community Night Out and get-together of our residents and the sheriff’s office. They will come to our park and cook hamburgers and hot dogs while we, the residents, bring dishes to pass. It should be a pleasant for all. We have guests in the park: Miss Addison Molina came with her parents Terry and Jim Molina to visit Addison’s grandparents Brenda and Rick Knoche. Ann Rissmiller was visited by her son, Bill, and his family. Joe and Pat Schweiger were surprised by visits by their two sons, Joe Schweiger and his friend from California and Quentin Schweiger and his family from the east coast. It was good to see that John and Carolyn Reece were back from their vacation. Emma Zweigler is leaving after visiting her grandmother, Dee Zeigler. She has been helping Dee lead the pool exercises for the past two weeks. We will miss her. The ladies coffee was handled by Marilyn Cromer. We were glad to see that there were 11 of us at the meeting. We discussed the August schedule: Tuesday, Aug. 9 is the Salad Bar Luncheon; Sunday, Aug. 14 the Military Soup and Sandwich and Thursday, Aug. 25 is the monthly carry-in dinner. Marilyn Christensen requests help for two hours on Saturday morning as they volunteer at the Lake Placid Health Care Center playing bingo. Men and women can help and your presence is appreciated by the residents.

There’s something revitalizing about friends coming together in the late morning, enjoying great food, coffee and conversation. Brunches are good for the soul!” It doesn’t take a lot of time or money to host a fabulous brunch gathering. To get you started, Chef McCullough shares some hosting tips, menu ideas and delicious recipes that will help you make your brunch memorable. Hosting Tips and Menu Ideas Paul McCulloughHave a variety of beverages on hand — from fruit juices and a morning cocktail to plenty of hot teas and good coffee. I like serving Starbucks Natural Fusions naturally-flavored coffees because unlike some other flavored packaged coffee, they’re made with real ingredients, like vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg, blended right in with the coffee.Acontinental brunch is the easiest to pull together. Purchase a variety of breakfast breads and artfully arrange. Stack books under a decorative cloth to create different levels and ensure visual interest. Keep your guest list small unless you can enlist a friend to help cook. After all, you want to be a good host while enjoying your brunch and spending time with each guest. Abrunch should incorporate elements of breakfast and lunch with harmony. Contrast the blueberry muffins and coffee-glazed scones with smoked salmon with capers and onions and a hearty egg dish that is packed with flavor. Try a scramble with new filling combinations like chicken and asparagus, or crab and avocado with a dollop of sour cream and chives.Superhero Scramble is a taste sensation my Hollywood clients love. It’s easy to make; start by sauting one pound of spinach. Mix with one pound of browned and crumbled turkey sausage and a half cup of julienned sundried tomato. Set that aside. Scramble a dozen eggs until almost finished, but still soft. Fold in the spinach/sausage mixture and sprinkle with eight ounces of seasoned feta cheese. Serve it with Starbucks Natural Fusions Cinnamon flavored coffee.Cut pineapple into slices and freeze them without overlapping each other. Use them in place of ice to cool down your sparkling water or Screwdrivers. Freeze grape tomatoes and garnish your Bloody Marys.For perfectly fluffy scrambled eggs, heat a medium size pan over medium heat. Melt a tablespoon of butter for every four eggs. Make sure the butter is melted and bubbly but not brown. Beat the eggs in a bowl with a pinch of kosher salt, pepper and one tablespoon of water. Then add to the pan and let them cook without stirring until they set a bit. With a spatula, push the eggs to the center, which creates folds of fluffy eggs. Push again as the eggs firm up. Slide from the pan when they are still a little wet. They’ll keep cooking for a minute or two. Top with cheese.Create a Sunday Brunch Punch Bowl made of ice. Use two glass bowls, one a little smaller than the other. Cut a 1/2-inch-thick lemon slice and set in the bottom center of the larger bowl. Put the second bowl on top of it and place a weight in it, like a 32-ounce canned product. Fill the space between the two bowls with sliced lemon and oranges or flowers. Slowly pour in distilled water (it freezes clearer than tap). Freeze for four to five hours, checking about 40 minutes in to push any citrus or flowers that have drifted up. To unmold it, place the bowls in a sink of warm water for about 15 seconds. The bottom bowl should release with a twist. Then repeat with the inside bowl. Wrap in aluminum foil and put into the freezer until you’re ready to use it. Maple, Brown Sugar and Coffee Bacon 1 pound thick-cut bacon (10 slices) 2 tablespoons Starbucks Natural Fusions Vanilla flavored ground coffee 2/3 cup packed brown sugar 1tablespoon real maple syrup 2 tablespoons freshly brewed Starbucks Natural Fusions Vanilla flavored coffee Fresh cracked pepper Preheat oven to 375F. Line a rimmed baking pan with parchment or waxed paper and set a flat rack on top. Lay bacon strips on rack, with edges touching. Sprinkle bacon strips evenly with half of the ground coffee. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, brewed coffee and maple syrup, stirring to blend. Brush the bacon with half of sugar mixture. Add coarse fresh cracked pepper lightly (or generously) over bacon. Bake 15 minutes. Carefully turn bacon over and sprinkle with remaining coffee, brush with remaining sugar glaze and cracked pepper. Bake until crispy, 10 minutes more. Caution — sugar glaze is very hot. Allow to cool for 3 to 4 minutes before serving.Paul’s PopoversMakes 12 popovers 5 eggs 1 2/3 cups half and half 1 2/3 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt Butter, double cream orjam 1 12 cup muffin pan Preheat oven to 450F. Place eggs and half and half in a large bowl beat with a whisk until blended. Add flour and salt and mix well. Mixture should resemble pancake batter — small lumps are okay. Even if you have a non-stick muffin pan, use a light coat of cooking spray. Fill each cup 3/4 full. Place on middle rack of oven. Make sure that the top rack is placed high enough so that the popovers do not come in contact with it as they rise. Close the door and do not peek for 30 minutes. Serve with butter or double cream and jam. OwnerofPaul’sKitchencateringbusiness,McCullough specializes in classic American cuisine and is known for his simple and down-to-earth approach to cooking, resulting in upscale food that’s not uptight.

C M Y K The last thing you need to be doing in the middle of the summer isturning on youro ven to make dinner. Unless you like huge utilitybills and the extra heat pouring out of your kitchen, that is. I have an easy rule for sum-m er: no oven recipes. My Menu-Mailersubscribers know this and to their great relief, I provide menus fromnow until Septemberw ithout using the oven. Its easy to implementyourself let me tell you how you can do this. You want to keep the heat in the kitchen to a minimum especially ifyour air conditioning is insufficient. So m ove the cooking, if youcan. Utilize your barbecue (and there are so manyg reat recipes justbegging for a barbecue like the one b elow) as much as you can standit. You can even grill veggies on the barby try it, it is absolutelydelicious. You can get these nifty l ittle pans with holes in them andgrill to your h earts content (kind of essential, unless you dontmind zucchini slip-p ing through the grill slats). I toss my cut upveggies in a l ittle olive oil and theyre just wonderful grilled. Trythis combo: red bellp epper, red onion, zucchini, summer squash andmushrooms. Yum! A nother keep-thekitchen-cool idea is to use y our crockpot elsewhere.We used to put it on the screen porch, but I have heard of peoplemoving their slow cookers to thel aundry room. You can have all kindsof delicious things cooking in that thing and never have to worryabout heating up your kitchen. When youre dealing with woefullyinadequate airc onditioning, every little hint helps. And dont forget t hings like main course salads, sandwiches and fastand easy stove-top suppers. Doing all of these things w ill give you a summer kitchen that wontget you all hot and bothered know what I mean? Heres a recipe to get you g rilling! Do ahead tip: Make the marinade and get your chicken marinating thenight before or first thing in the morning.Grilled Lemon Garlic ChickenServes 6 6 (6-oz. less chicken breast halves 1/2 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup olive oil6 cloves garlic, pressed 2 teaspoons thyme I n a small bowl combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and thyme tomake mari-n ade. Put the chicken in a 1gallon ziploc-type plastic b agand the pour marinade over chicken then seal the bag. Marinate in therefrig-e rator for 6 to 8 hours or overnight. I f you can, squish itaround every now and then to distribute marinade. Drain chicken,discarding marinade. (Dont even thinka bout using it again.) Light the barby till coals a re to a medium-high heat. (Not red hot,but slightly ash-y if not using gas). Grillf or 5 to 6 minutes perside or until cooked through. ( You can also cook this on the stove topin a skillet: heat a little olive oil and c ook till browned on eachside, about 5 minutes per side or until cooked throughout) P er Serving: 278 Calories; 11g Fat; 40g Protein; 3g Carbohydrate;trace Dietary Fiber; 99mg Cholesterol;1 12mg Sodium.

I and most of theo ther customers are over 65. The owner, Valentino, is a 50ish widower who likes to brag about his romantic conquests. My friends and I agree that his revelations are inappropriate and unprofessional. Val is an excellent hairdresser. Should we ignore his behavior, or quit cold turkey and live with bad hair days? Embarrassed in the Big Easy DearEmbarrassed: I have a better idea. Take Valentino aside and tell him privately, as a friend, that hearing the details of his sex life is embarrassing, and that some of his clients have mentioned theyre considering changing hairdressers because of it. That should snip it. DearAbby: My best friend, Marianne, and I have known each other for 27 years. She recently got divorced, started playing online games and met a man at one of the sites. Within a couple of months, he had moved across the country with his son and into Mariannes house. This guy has nothing going for him. He has no job background, no skills, and as near as I can tell, he is a mooch. Marianne says he feels material things arent important and he is just not into money. Marianne and I g et out for a couple of hours a week for girl time, and when we do, he calls and texts her constantly like a jealous teenager. Abby, were 40 years old! I havent told her how I feel about her new livein, but I have always had good instincts and my alarm bells are ringing. Should I tell her how I feel, or try to be happy she has found someone to give her the attention she didnt have in her marriage? Sees the Writing on the Wall DearSees the Writing: Of course the man doesnt think material things are important and isnt into money. He is enjoying Mariannes material things and her money. Yes, you should tell your friend you are concerned. Begin by saying your concern stems from a fear that she has gotten seriously involved so quickly after her divorce, and that the man appears to be so insecure and controlling that he cant give her a couple of hours of girl time without interruption. That really is a red flag. And the fact that your friend is supporting him and his son is another. DearAbby: Aclose, longtime family friend recently passed. In order to relieve some of the pressure on thed eceaseds family, I volunteered my time and money to organize the reception following the funeral. There was a lot of food left over, much of it food that I had provided. We offered the leftovers to the family and they took some, but not all of it. I assumed that what was left of my food would go to me and my family, but others (some of whom provided nothing decided to pack it up for themselves. Am I wrong to feel cheated out of food that I purchased? Ticked Off in Massachusetts DearTicked Off: I understand your frustration, but please dont waste your time fuming. The people who took the leftovers without first checking to see who had brought or donated the food probably needed it more than you. These are difficult times, so let it go.

De Niro will visit the 9/11 memorial and show viewers progress on the sites rebuilding. De Niro to host 9/11 film on CBS Dear Abby Associated PressLOS ANGELES Little blue Smurfs and not-so-little green men from space are ina photo finish for the No. 1 spot at the weekend box office. Daniel Craig and Harrison Fords sci-fi Western Cowboys & Aliens and the family adventure The Smurfs both opened with $36.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That leaves Sonys Smurfs and Universals Cowboys & Aliens tied for the top spot. Figuring out the No. 1 movie will have to wait until final numbers are counted Monday. In all my years, Ive never really seen a race this close, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. Generally, in the world of movie box office, $1 million is a close call, so to have two films in a dollar-to-dollar tie is somewhat unprecedented. Studios often round off their Sunday numbers, which include Friday and Saturday totals plus an estimate of Sunday business based on how similar movies have done in the past. So Sunday figures typically are rounded off to the nearest $50,000 or $100,000, with more accurate, to-thedollar numbers generally coming in Mondays final tally. But Universal released an estimate of $36,206,250, which would have put Cowboys & Aliens a fraction ahead of The Smurfs in Sundays rankings. So Sony, which had reported a rounded-off figure of $36.2 million, matched that $36,206,250 estimate for The Smurfs. Cowboys & Aliens, Smurfs tie for No. 1 spot

Try the recipe for Fresh Fruit Ice Cream or Pineapple and Chipotle Ice Pops for a cool summer treat.For beautiful desserts with little prep work, try layering ice cream between prepared short bread cookies for a gourmet inspired ice cream sandwich or cake. For a real crowd pleaser, create a topping bar where guests can select the ice cream toppings of their choice. You could also serve as ice pops by freezing the ice cream mixture in molds and inserting wooden craft sticks in the center.Instead of serving in a traditional bowl, make a bowl out of your favorite summer fruit. Take half of a small cantaloupe, mini watermelon or pineapple, and scoop out the flesh. Then cut a flat edge off the bottom of the skin to make it stable. Fill it with your ice cream and drizzle with chocolate sauce and add other fun toppings.
