The story begins with an 11-year-old English girl living in tropical India. Her name is Mary. She has just become an orphan, the sole survivor of a cholera outbreak. Ghosts — or is it memories ? — swirl all around her. She is sent to the bleak and chilly Yorkshire moor and Misselthaite Manor, the home of her only relative, Archibald Craven, the husband of her mother’s sister But Craven is bitterly lost in grief, for his wife has died and he feels all alone. He is so obsessed with his dead love, in fact, that he sees her everywhere, sings duets with her and dances with her in his arms — only of course it’s all in his imagination — or is it? HLTs production of The Secret Garden is an obvious hit News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Brenda Hippchen (left) plays the housekeeper of a house filled with ghosts. Nala Price, playing an orphan thrust on an unknown uncle, hides her fear with temper tantrums and insults. By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comElementary schools throughout Highlands County work non-stop throughout the summer and the school year on supplemental fundraisers. Each of the nine elementary schools, as well as the Kindergarten Learning Center, participate in one or more of several nationally recognized fundraisers. Two of the schools, Memorial and Cracker Trail, participated in at least five fundraisers this year. For most of the schools, the PTO is the entities that run the fundraisers making sure that students are staying involved in the fundraisers. Teresa Ware, who works for Management Information Systems for the school board, has been somewhat of an advocate for the past few years for the schools’fundraisers. “Each year the elementary schools participate in these fundraisers. Most people know about Box Tops (for Education), but there are several others that schools are doing,” Ware said. The five fundraisers include Box Tops for Education, Campbell Product Labels, Coke Reward Points, a cell phone recycling program and a printer cartridge recycling program. All 10 schools participate in Box Tops for Education. Afew schools are exclusively participating in other fundraisers. From box tops to bottle caps, schools turn to fundraisers to help budgets See SCHOOLS, page 6A See HLT, page 3A By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — After three public hearings, a recess and a lot of discussion about a referendum, with a 2-2 vote on Tuesday the County Commission failed to pass changes to the Tourism Tax ordinance. Board Chair Barbara Stewart and Commissione r Greg Harris voted for the changes and Commissioners Jack Richie and Don Elwell voted against new ordinance partially in support of putting the tax out for referendum. Passing on the first public hearing, the controversial changes to the Tourism Tax failed to get a majority plus one during the second hearing on Aug. 2 because of a lack of five commissioners and Harris being absent. “I support this ordinance, and I support tourism, but i f we approve this we are signing a blank check,” Elwell said. “No tax should be in perpetuity. There should be a sunset on this.” Elwell was told by County Attorney Ross Macbeth tha t the commission could no t approve a sunset without a public vote. “The answer to that is no. Tourism tax changes fail to pass See TOURISM, page 3A By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — With a 3-1 vote on Tuesday, commissioners approved moving forward with Phase III of the Sebring Parkway. Commissioner Don Elwell voted against the project, stating that he did not disagree with the project, but wanted “everyone to get up to speed.” Elwell also asked if the road had to be built now. “I know we need it for growth and I know that we will build it in the future, but I am asking do we need it now?” Elwell said. The third phase of the roadway will start at the current 90-degree turn in Sebring, then cut northwest through orange groves between Lake Sebring and Little Lake Red Water turning more northward as it skirts Lake Denton to the east and end at College Drive and Memorial Drive. The north end of the new road will make an intentional Y-intersection designed to deter Parkway traffic from entering College Drive At a budgeted cost o f $7,997,358 the new expressway costs will be covered partially by a $3 million grant from the Florida Department o f Transportation.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING — Smiles could be seen on the faces of every person as students piled in and filled up chairs of the newly made-over classroom of Cheryl Vermilye at Cracker Trail Elementary Monday morning. Vermilye was one of five grand-prize winners of the Got 2B Safe contest. Honeywell, along with the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children, awarded Vermilye, as well as four other teachers around the country, a classroom makeover valued at $10,000. The second grade classroom was a complete rehaul of the old one. One of the major changes, and most appreciated, was the flooring. “We had old carpet, 20year-old carpet, in here,” said Vermilye, adding that students eat breakfast and lunch in the classroom and the carpet sometimes felt less than clean. The new tile floor sparkled and was spotless. The green and beige pattern flows nicely with the rain forest theme in the classroom. New paint, shelving and organizers were installed throughout the room. “Those things are not cheap,” said Vermilye pointing to the blue organizers that hang on the backs of each of the students chairs. “They look like they’re not a big deal but they make things so much easier and can add up quickly.” Agroup of boys at the back of the classroom had their backs turned to the rest of the class for a large chunk of the room makeover presentation, but for good reason. The table was lined with iPads and iTouches, two of each, that the students could not keep stay away from. The boys were thrilled with amazement as each waited for a chance to play with the new technology. “Look, I can see your face,” one student said holding up the iPad in front of a friend. “I can make it look funny,” he added. Vermilye is excited to put the technology to use in her classroom. “I can use it for a lot of things. If a student isn’t progressing in let’s say a math assignment, I can download apps that will single out the problem and concentrate solely on it. The technology will help; it’s just another way to present the material to them so they aren’t bored with it. “I can also monitor their behavior with it, there are applications for it, also,” Vermilye said. The new classroom also featured a 42-inch LG flatscreen television and brightly colored area rugs. The makeover took about two weeks to complete from start to finish and was headed by Marion Koppes and Thomas Ryan of Ryan Studios Inc. It was the first time the duo had decorated a classroom. “It was really nice to work with someone who is appreciative. Cheryl gave us a good idea of what she wanted and she was careful with the money. She is so wonderful,” Koppes said. Vermilye will enter her seventh year as an instructor and welcome 18 new second graders on the first day of the 2011 school year on Monday.

That’s when the fifth annual Pioneer Reunion Picnic takes place at the Community Center, beginning at noon. In past years, the Pioneers were announced prior to the picnic. But, as Jean Jordan, picnic chairperson, says, “This year we’re keeping it a surprise. All I can say is that they are well known, especially for their leadership and their work with the youth of Avon Park. “We invite all to come out and make this a special day for them.” Other than that change, the format for the picnic remains the same: The event is open to the public, with attendees requested to bring a covered dish. Iced tea, coffee and table settings will be supplied by the Historical Society of Avon Park, which sponsors the event. Local Boy Scouts will be on hand to carry the dishes from the parking lot into the center and the various graduating classes from Avon Park High School will be recognized during the program. Admission is free, but families, high school classes and other groups can reserve a table for eight for $20 by calling Jordan at 453-6957.

C M Y K There is another, younger uncle, who had loved his brother’s wife. He carries a grudge, still angry his brother’s wife hadn’t chosen him. He is selfish and mean spirited. Then there is a cold and unpleasant housekeeper. The house is dark, drafty and scary. What is hiding in the upper stories? Who is that screaming in the night? Is it any wonder Mary becomes a bit obnoxious? But this is a fairy tale, and while every fairy tale has a dark side, it only exists to make real life all the sweeter. Without the sorrow, this family would never come to cherish each other. “The Secret Garden,” both the place in the musical and the musical itself, is flooded with magic and the love of life. The musical does not follow the novel exactly. That was published in 1911 and written by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Eighty years later, in 1991, the novel was turned into a musical and produced on Broadway. The original production won Tony Awards for best score, best book, and best scenic design. Daisy Egan, as Mary, received a Tony for best featured actress. In the Highlands Little Theatre production, the set design is also stunning, going from interior to exterior sets with fluid motion. The clipped garden hedges look a little bit as if Salvador Dali had trimmed them. The award-winning music is wonderful, and the cast sing it beautifully, creating texture, richness of depth and all kinds of harmonies. Singing has always been an HLTstrong suit. “The Secret Garden,” directed by Kristin Taylor, is no exception. Children, as well as adults, will be caught up in the production. Nala Price, last year’s winner of the Junior Heartland Idol, plays Mary; Robert Boyer, in his debut at HLT, plays Mary’s uncle, Archibald Craven; Gary Johnson plays Archibald’s younger brother, Neville Craven; Mark Reyes plays Colin Craven; Austin Westergom plays Dickon, the gardener’s son; Olivia Hitt plays Dickon’s sister Martha; Art Harriman plays the gardener; Brenda Hippchen plays Miss Murdock, the cold and distant housekeeper; Laura Wade plays Archibald’s dead wife, Lily; Christine Smith plays Miss Winthrop, a boarding school headmistress; Tracy Finney plays the nurse; and Bill Farmer, Amanda Mercer, Christopher Martin, Jonathan Lambright, Asia Gilroy, Larissa Meagher, Moriah Finney, Anna Schmidt, Bob Hippchen, Bethany Finney, and Gennell Ward play the Dreamers, serving as a Greek chorus. The people they represent, like Mary’s parents, have all died. “Very few of us have any lines,” Lambright said of the group, “but about half the numbers are sung by the Dreamers. In the last half of Act 1 there is a storm outside and we act out the storm of turmoil going on inside.” “The Secret Garden” opens Friday and runs through Sept. 4. There are three evening performances and a Sunday matinee each week. For more information call 382-2525. The box office, located at 356 W, Center Avenue in Sebring, is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets may also be bought online at www.highlandslittletheatre.org. For this production only, The Highlands Little Theatre is offering a reduced ticket price for children 12 and younger. Buy one adult ticket at regular price and a child’s ticket for $10. Limit of two children for each adult ticket purchased. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, August 17, 2011Page 3A Daily Commercial; 9.347"; 9"; Black plus three; process, century link; 0 0 0 1 0 6 6 9 MILLER'S CENTRAL AIR; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 8/17/11; 0 0 0 1 1 0 6 8 GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCEƒ Continued from page 1A News-sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Austin Westergom plays the part of Dickon in The Secret Garden.

HLT opens production of The Secret Garden Friday Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — The recession appears to be over for Tallahassee lobbyists. Casino operators, utilities, health care companies and agricultural companies shelled out millions of dollars during the first half of the year to lobby the Florida Legislature, Gov. Rick Scott and other top state officials. Many of the corporations that spent the most were those seeking help from the Republican-controlled Legislature to either pass or kill bills during the spring legislative session. Reports show that legislative lobbyists earned as much as $64.8 million in the first six months of this year. That’s an increase over 2010’s total of $62.6 million. Last year lobbyists reported that their income had dipped for the first time since 2007. But veteran lobbyists say they have noticed that has changed. “Folks are beginning to say that ‘we now understand that even during bad times we need to have good representation,’” said Brian Ballard, a well-known Tallahassee lobbyist whose firm earned more than $2 million during the first half of 2011.

C M Y K And suppose you’re upset about something that just happened in Congress and you’re fed up with how the members of Congress in your own party — it doesn’t matter which one — conducted themselves. You’ve felt it coming on for a long time and you’ve finally decided to act by switching parties. As the old saying goes, you’re not leaving your party, you believe your party left you. And suppose further that you’re so upset about how your local congressman — whom you once supported — acted that you want to run against him next year in your new party, or even in a party that is yet to be formally organized. Heck, that’s your right as an American, isn’t it? Well, no. Thanks to the Florida Legislature, you’ve lost that right. You should have made that decision sometime before you got mad at your former party. This year the Legislature quietly stuck a provision into a huge rewrite of the election law. Now it is illegal for anyone to qualify to run in a party primary if the person hasn’t been continuously registered in that party for 17 months prior to the general election in which the office will be filled. The limitation had been six months. ... State Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, who sponsored the change, told the St. PetersburgTimes it was prompted by then-Gov. Charlie Crist’s abandonment of the Republican Party last year to run (unsuccessfully) for the U.S. Senate. But the new law wouldn’t have affected Crist, because he reregistered as a noparty candidate so he could avoid a primary contest. Baxley also said he wanted to block people from running under the tea party label if they had no history with that party. But the tea party organizations didn’t begin forming until well into 2009, so hardly anyone had any registration history with them a year before the 2010 qualifying date. The new qualifying restriction is clearly arbitrary and intended to keep potential candidates from running, with no valid need or purpose demonstrated. ... The new election law already is being challenged, deservedly, in court on other grounds. This provision deserves to be struck down as well. An editorial from the Gainesville Sun.

I once knew a lady who discovered a lump in her breast, but ignored it until it had metastasized. She finally sought medical help when she reached the point that she could no longer ignore the pain. Initially, denial gave her a brief sense of security, but all the while, the cancer was spreading. I could not help but notice an odd similarity this week while listening to Rep. Debbie WassermanSchultz, D-FL, tell MSNBC that Obama and the Democrats have “really begun to turn the economy around.” With the exception of inside the Beltway, Americans are hurting. Cities and towns across this great country bear the scars of recession in one form or another, from abandoned homes to emptied offices and pot-holed roads. Last week’s stock market nose dive coupled with anemic unemployment numbers were symptomatic of a sick economy screaming for a huge dose of oldfashioned American Capitalism. Obviously in denial (or worse), the Obama administration did everything in its power to convince Americans that “there is nothing to see here, just move along.” It’s like watching my friend exhibit all the symptoms of cancer and all she wants to talk about is how good she feels. And now with Standard and Poor’s downgrade of the country’s AAAcredit rating, for the first time in United States history, it will be intriguing to see how the administration tries to spin this latest revelation. While most Americans are not economists, we are smart enough to see the economy is in dire straits. The administration seems to think throwing a bunch of numbers around as a shell game is enough to quiet the masses. Listening to White House rhetoric last week, one might be tempted to think that the creation of 117,000 jobs and the slight unemployment rate drop to 9.1 percent is a sign of an economy on the mend. Not so much. And as Paul Harvey used to say, “Now, for the rest of the story:” While the creation of 117,000 jobs is better than no jobs at all, our economy must create at least 125,000 jobs per month just to keep up with the pace of population growth. Even still, we are not coming close to chipping away at the jobs deficit in this country. Likewise, the administration championed its economic policies on news unemployment dropped from 9.2 percent to 9.1 percent, but failed to disclose that a large portion of that percentage was due to workers who gave up on the job search. The administration continues to deny the problem. Thanks to Sigmund Freud, we know denial takes on many forms, one of which being the denial of facts, which can lead to outright lying if someone believes the truth is too painful to face. If the Obama administration and its sidekicks continue to deny the severity of the condition of our economy, we will wake up one day to find it’s too late.

Guest colmuns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the News-Sun Obama and Democrats are in denial Guest Column Susan Stamper Brown Shareholders need to leave Chokoloskee aloneEditor: I live in Lee County and in the summertime we like to venture south to enjoy the 10,000 Islands area in Collier County, which is south of here. Imagine our surprise when we drove up to Mamie Street in Chokoloskee to visit Smallwood’s Store and were denied access by a Collier County deputy. We noticed the road had been torn up and a chain link fence constructed down Mamie Street. What was going on? To find out, we stopped at a baitand-tackle shop where we learned a company named Florida-Georgia Grove LLPwith shareholders from Highlands County had purchased land in Chokoloskee to build a boat launch. When the Army Corps of Engineers denied them another access road, they tore up Mamie Street in a snit. Now, the folks who live on Mamie Street in addition to the Smallwood’s Store (a historical landmark) cannot use the road. Smallwood’s Store has been in Chokoloskee since 1906. The county has maintained that road for the past 60 years. Please, folks, if you have any means to reason with any of the shareholders, ask them to stop messing around with the people of Collier County. There are enough problems in the world today without this sort of bad blood between Florida counties. Sue Ellen Brown Lee CountyPoor choices being made for our childrenEditor: As a concerned grandparent, I am upset about a couple of stories I have read in the newspapers recently. Between the Lake Placid City Council and the Highlands County commissioners our children and grandchildren are not going to have any securty at school or no place to play sports, or have parties and picnics, because of the cut backs, politics and being charged more money to play sports. Families with midto low-incomes or have more than one child will not be able to afford for their children to play sports due to the additional $35 they are going to be charged to use the fields and parks. The Dare program and the Resource Officers being taken out of our schools, because the county commissioners can’t figure out their budget, is not right. Our children need these officer’s and programs to live productive lives and stay safe in our schools. If not we are going to start seeing more children running the streets and involved in drugs than we do already. I think every parent and grandparent in Highlands County needs to speak up and let our councilmen and commissioners know how we feel. Vicky Spires SebringWorlds financial systems at brink of collapseEditor: America’s trip through time to an unpayable debt, caused by job loss. The story starts with American taxpayers revolt on arming Iran. Iran had nothing to sell to pay for the military arms, but oil; oil at that time was $2 a barrel. Henry Kissinger said the solution to that problem was to raise the price of oil, to all nations, thus Henry Kissinger became the father to uncontrolled oil prices, and in so doing unstabilized energy prices worldwide. Along comes Ronald Reagan, who when elected made the statement, “Boys, we have hit the jackpot.” He is the father of the illegal Mexican workforce. He gave amnesty to 3 million illegal Mexicans, enticing many millions more to follow, bankrupting every state in the union, destroying America’s labor market. Along comes Slick Willie, Bill Clinton, who promoted NAFTAand many unfair trade deals with the help of special interest groups, a Lobby of American investors, spearheaded by General Electric – and including such heavy hitters as AT&T, Coca Cola, Ford and IBM and many other top industries – to fight in Washington for China and India, two of the most populated nations in the world, to get their goods into America tax-free and to violate the anti-dumping laws. Then they shipped most of their jobs to the low wage nations to make more profit and to take advantage of the American worker and middle class and America’s tax base, creating the huge debt problem. They also raided American trust funds to pay a huge tax break, the super rich investors. They were soon borrowing trillions of dollars to operate the American government controlled by incumbent politicians whose sole purpose was to serve themselves, not the people... What America now does is up to the American people. We must demand that all goods entering this country be taxed, no exceptions. If you want to sell to the world’s largest consumer market in the world, you must pay a tax. If you want to sell tax-free in America, build it here. America must demand their fair share of world trade. The world’s largest corporations have brought the world’s financial systems to the brink of complete collapse, all in the name of profit and greed. America’s political system must demand “term limits” for all, local, state and federal. Billie E.

The statute provides that the board must receive the voters approval to do this. The board cannot stop or dissolve the tax without referendum,” Macbeth said. The commission took the public hearing portion of the meeting into recess in order to vote on the referendum and followed up with several other items on the agenda before returning to the hearing. During the recess, Elwell made a motion to put the tourism tax out for referendum and a sunset date of Dec. 31, 2014. Elwell’s motion failed on a 2-2 vote, with Harris and Stewart voting against and Elwell and Richie voting for a referendum. Stewart restarted the public hearing and Harris made the motion to approve the changes to the Tourism Tax, which also failed for a lack of a majority plus one. “Significant changes in regards to staff will have to be made,” Board Chair Barbara Stewart stated after the vote failed. Stewart stressed to Tourism Director John Sherlacher, County Administrator Ricky Helms and County Services Director June Fisher to make sure those who were planning on money after the vote to be aware of the vote. “John, I would also direct you to get with Mr. Helms and June and let those who were waiting on transitory funds know,” Stewart directed, referring to the failed changes. The original ordinance, numbered 8-222 was approved by voters in 2002 by a margin of 561 votes, bu t county staff did not adhere to the original plans for spending, according to County Activist Bill Youngman. “You are making a drastic change and the people o f Highlands County need to take another look at it. This is a fantastic bait-and-switch,” Youngman said. It was also revealed in the meeting that staffing and office costs exceeded the original ordinance percentages and the changes would allow the spending to come into line with requirements. “Get with Mr. Helms to regarding setting up the proper accounts,” Stewart directed county staff. Continued from page 1A Tourism tax changes fail ers will foot the rest of the bill from the Infrastructure Funds collected from fuel taxes and the General Fund. County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete told commissioners that a no vote on Tuesday could jeopardize grant funds from the FDOT. County Administrator Ricky Helms supported Gavarrete in his assessment. “Do we want to use $3 million from the state now or spend $6 million later without the state money?” Helms asked. Several in the audience expressed their concern over the Parkway, including Lake Placid Town Council member Ray Royce, “We need to invest now. If you are going to invest, you need to invest in brick and mortar and infrastructure,” Royce said. “I don’t know why we think we need this,” said citizen Chester Downing, who expressed that the county was in negative growth. Gavarrete said the projec t would begin in the next few months and would take approximately two years. Continued from page 1A Parkway Phase IIIis approved

It allows classrooms to get things that they might need and are not able to. Every little bit helps,” Ware said. Each of the fundraisers rewards schools in different ways. The Campbell’s Label fundraisers designates which products are eligible to earn points or cash. The program sends a catalog to each of the participating schools and teachers are able to choose items to add to the classroom. Community involvement is key in getting these schools the funds they need to grow and educate their young minds. Ware hopes that the middle and high schools, along with parents, will join in on the fundraising efforts. “The older students can help out, too. It’s a joint effort,” said Ware.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING – It’s an unlikely story, really. ACinderella story even, perhaps, as Sebring’s Johnny Knight officially signed to be a part of the Philadelphia Phillies organization. The team recently flew him up to the ‘City of Brotherly Love’for a workout with various other picks from this year’s draft as well as prospects for the future, at Citizen’s Bank Park. “Some of the higher picks were all in uniform with their equipment bags, looking real sharp,” Knight said. “I really just walked in with my bat and glove. There was only one person there drafted lower than me, so at first I wasn’t really even sure they were paying much attention.” That changed soon enough. “They ran the 60-yard dash and Johnny was the second fastest one there,” his dad, Gene Gauger said. “That caught the coach’s attention, especially when they asked how big his feet were and found out he’s a size 16.” During batting practice, Knight would keep their attention when he lined one off the left-field wall. Considering the biggest transition for a lot of draftees is the switch from aluminum to wooden bats, this feat showed his raw power wasn’t sacrificed. “The way it jumps off his bat with aluminum didn’t change with the switch to wood,” Gauger said. But also consider this, with our Dixie Ozone team just returning from their second World Series championship, very well versed and seasoned in the sport at the ages of 11 and 12 – Knight had barely begun playing organized baseball at that age. “When I was younger, I wanted to play, but I had a lot of other interests,” Knight said. “I was into skateboarding and other things, but after a while, I saw I wasn’t going to be a pro skateboarder and I wasn’t very good at golf.” So one summer at the age of 10, Gauger saw a sign-up sheet for league play, and the journey began. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID – It’s a little different feel this time around for Lady Dragon volleyball coach Linette Wells, though expectations remain the same for the six-time defending district champs. “I wouldn’t say so much it’s experience, because there’s still a lot to learn,” she said before practice Monday. “It’s more a comfort level with knowing what to expect, what needs to be done.” It was a year ago that Wells was starting her inaugural season at the helm after the retirement of long-time coach Marilyn Jones. The team was also heading into the season with some questions, as a strong senior class from the year before had to be replaced. Again, some veteran leadership was lost to graduation from the likes of Kyle Weber and Olivia Goolsby, but a strong cast of experience returns. Six seniors dot the roster along with four juniors and two sophomores. Regardless of class, however, plenty of varsity experience is on hand and continued success of the program is expected and foreseen. “I think we are going to be real good this year,” senior outside hitter Taylor Miller said. “We’ve been playing all summer and were at a really tough tournament recently with some top teams and we did pretty well.” And so the team is anxiously looking to get into the season. “The girls really took it upon themselves to work hard over the summer together,” Wells said. “I have a group of seniors who have the want and the drive to have a successful season. And they all have an eagerness to get the season started.” SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, August 17, 2011 NASCAR This Week4B Courtesy photo Amidst coaches, scouts and Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Sebrings Johnny Knight takes some cuts in the batting cage at Citizens Bank Park last Friday. News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Family gathered for Brittany Whittington to officially sign a scholarship to play for the Lady Panthers of SFCC. Mother Gina and sister Lyndsey, along with South Florida volleyball coach Kim Crawford and father John were on hand at the late signing. Offered a preferred w alk-on initially, Whittington took a summer class in order to train with the team. With the hard work and ability then more readily seen by Crawford, the scholarship was offered and accepted. Shes obviously a hard worker and I saw that this summer,Ž Crawford said. And getting the chance to work with and see her, I saw that she was even better than what Id remembered.Ž Whittington had considered other schools, hoping to continue her playing career as well. But the opportunity to do so, so close to home, tipped the scales. But even coming from a strong Sebring program, she sees the adjustments that will have to be made. Its so much faster,Ž Whittington said. Its like going from middle school to junior v arsity, from JV to varsity, it always gets a little faster, and its that much more so to junior college. But Im excited to have the chance to continue to play and it would be great if I could come in as a freshman and help get us to the playoffs.Ž News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE The 2011 Lady Dragons, from left, Marissa Baldwin, Breauna Corley, Shlebi Bertram, Tiffani Broder, Rhoni Gavagni, Taylor Miller, Laine Weber-Callahan, Alana Nielander, Ashley Townsend and Samantha Phypers.

Series win opens doors Associated PressMIAMI — Teenage Cuban refugee Jose Fernandez has agreed to terms with the Florida Marlins only hours before baseball’s draft deadline. Fernandez is coming of f his senior season in high school in Tampa. He was taken with the 14th pick in the first round of the June draft. The 18-year-old right-hander reached an agreemen t with the Marlins late Monday, shortly before the midnight deadline. Fernandez grew up in Santa Clara, Cuba. He and other family members had made repeated attempts to leave the country and join his father in Tampa before finally making it in 2008. A6-foot-4, 220-pounder, Fernandez went 30-3 in three years at Alonso High School and helped his team win two state titles. He had been planning to pitch at the University o f South Florida if he didn’ t turn pro. Marlins top pick Fernandez agrees to terms

C M Y K The season will see a newly aligned district for the team, with McKeel, Tenoroc and Fort Meade leaving and DeSoto joining in with Avon Park, Mulberry, Frostproof and the Lady Dragons. “We don’t underestimate any team in our district, but I feel that Avon Park will be the main competition this year,” Wells said. “Coach (Stephanie) Devlin has changed their program dramatically. We saw that last year and they have some returners that hit hard and serve well.” But Lake Placid is well prepared to take on all comers. “It’s really hard to expect anything but the best from all these players,” Wells said. “The starting six will be dominating at all positions.” The towering middles, Marissa Baldwin Samantha Phypers and Breauna Corley will be flanked by outside hitters Alana Nielander and Taylor Miller, with Roni Gavagni setting up the offense. And returning to full strength from a back injury which kept her hobbled most of last season is Libero Brittany Collison. “She will be bringing a lot of amazing things to the back row,” Wells said. Laine Weber-Callahan and Arnetia Gobourne will be adding to the back row depth with Ashley Townsend, Shelbi Bertram and Tiffani Broder adding size on the outside. “I have high hopes and expectations for this season,” Wells said. “I feel this team, with drive, determination and teamwork, number seven will be ours.” www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, August 17, 2011Page 5B PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 11.25"; 4"; Black; 84355-kow mellons; 0 0 0 1 1 0 4 2 HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 1 0 6 7 8 UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 8/12/14,17; 0 0 0 1 0 9 6 4 UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 8/12/14,17; 0 0 0 1 0 9 6 4 HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 1 0 6 7 8 PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 11.25"; 4"; Black; 84355-kow mellons; 0 0 0 1 1 0 4 2 Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE High-flying returnee Taylor Miller is one of plenty of returning starters that has Lake Placid in good stead to go for its seventh straight district title. Dragons aim for No. 7 His passion and ability for the sport grew from there, but so did his body, to the current 6-foot-3 and 170-pounds – with those size 16s as well.. Which didn’t always make the game easy, but the talent was always there, even if the numbers didn’t always reflect it. “You see his stats from this past season and that’s not going to get you drafted,” Gauger said. “But last August we had taken him to a ‘Get Name Out’showcase, the only one we had ever taken him to. Aformer scout, Alan Marr, saw him and immediately took an interest and started working with him. “Awhile later, he said he’d have to stop working with him because the Phillies had hired him, but he apparently kept Johnny in mind.” Acouple other workouts followed with the Philadelphia organization, as Marr had spread the word, with other scouts and cross checkers joining in. Despite his still somewhat awkward gait, the holes in his swing, they saw enough to draft him in June. One more workout was arranged, apparently to get one more look and see if he’d be worth bringing to Philadelphia for the highest ups to see. “After that, they let us know that they were going to fly us up Aug. 11-13,” Gauger said. “It was real nice, although walking out onto the field of that stadium, Johnny said he got a little dizzy.” “Playing at Firemen’s Field is one thing, but this was just a whole other level,” Knight said. “But once the workout started, I realized it helped. The hitting background is real clear I could see the fly balls really well.” And the journey continues as Knight joined the GCL Phillies of the Rookie Ball Gulf Coast League this week. With just two weeks left in their season, he likely won’t see any game action but will begin practicing with the team, working out and working with the coaches. “I know there’s a lot of work to do and a lot to learn,” Knight said. “At this point, my fielding will be all right because I can use my speed and athleticism, but I know I’ve still got to grow into my body and their going to do a lot of work on my swing.” After the season ends, Knight will have little time off before fall workouts and training with the team. Amonth or so off over the winter then leads to early spring training and his first full season in the Gulf Coast League. And anxious though he might be, with his dreams beginning to come true, Knight isn’t looking too far ahead. “My goal is to just get better and the work toward the next step, which would be the New York Penn League (with the Class AWilliamsport Crosscutters),” he said. And so the Cinderella story, while still in its early stages, has taken a big first step, with many smaller ones to follow. Though there’s not likely to be a glass slipper involved, it’s hard enough to find baseball cleats in a size 16. Continued from 1B Courtesy photo After opening some eyes with the second-fastest time in the 60-yard dash at a workout at Citizens Bank Park last Friday, Knight, grey shirt, returns to the dugout with his fellow draftees.

Wedding LAKE PLACID — Aug. 6, the first Sunday of the month, was the pancake breakfast in the park. There were only 54 in attendance. Too bad, do you know what you missed? Abreakfast of orange juice, sausage and coffee and all the fluffy pancakes you can eat for $3. Monday morning coffee was made by Rodney Wilds along with Rose and Kenneth Wilson. Arlene Clouston made the chocolate coconut cruncher cookies. David Bailie, in his eminent way, emceed the evening. Carol Noel, our Sunshine Girl, announced the list for our thoughts and prayers: Penny, Tom Ault’s sister, passed away; and Helen Burgan’s brother, George Young, passed away. Sandra Humphires, Barbara McKamey and Kathleen Margetts are in rehabilitation. Andy Anderson will be home this week. We sang “Happy Birthday” for Luetta Kiger’s 86th birthday and “Happy Anniversary” for Jim and Rose’s 57th wedding anniversary. I’m glad that Laura Bailie plays the piano since we never sound very good without her accompaniment. We were happy to welcome back Luetta Kiger as she just returned from five weeks in Indiana and Troy, Mich. While she was in Michigan, her great granddaughter, Madelyn Jean Irby, was born. Luetta also spent time in St. Petersburg. Jean Chittenden is so proud of her granddaughter, Brooke Grassman, winning the National Wakeboarding title in Minneapolis. Did you meet her when she was visiting her grandmother as they were enjoying the pool? Maybe you saw Brooke as she practiced her twists and turns on Lake Clay. It’s great to have a winner in our area. At our coffee, Rick Knoche asked for photographs of our Tropical Harbor Veterans in their uniforms and a brief description of their duty. Also, a current picture would be appreciated. He will scan these pictures and give them back. A Christmas tribute to all veterans is being planned on Sunday, Dec. 11. Ladies Coffee took place Tuesday morning at 9:30 with 11 ladies present. Marilyn Cromer hosted an d led the meeting. Carol Noel read the Sunshine report and we were sorry to hear tha t Peggy Sue Teague had fallen. The Red Hats went out to lunch on August 11 at JR’s Runway Cafe at Sebring Regional Airport. Ou r Queen, Peggy Sue Teague, had a 60ish birthday on Aug. 10. The carry-in dinner will be held Thursday, Aug. 25. I t was decided to take a donation for school supplies starting now and up to the evening of the carry-in-dinner for the children that need them. The Craft Sale will take place Saturday, Nov. 12. Contact Marge Perry if you will want a table. So work on those crafts so that you will have something to sell by then. After the meeting, tables were set up for the Salad Bar Luncheon at noon. As “Torrents of Summer” stormed in, around 20 came to the salad luncheon. Maybe some were pretty wet, bu t the lunch was enjoyed, anyhow. Here’s a thought: Abend in the road is not the end o f the road, unless you fail to make the turn. Tropical Harbor Estates By Arlene Clouston

C M Y K Some of the tastiest sides to load onto your plate at a summerbarbecue or any other buffet table are French fries, mashed potatoes,rice and coleslaw. Now, sadly, none of those sides are really greatfor you if you’re eating the classic version of the list above.However, there is a way to make these usually unhealthy sides morehealthy.French friesI know, we all love them. My healthy solution: sweetpotato fries. Sweet potatoes offer more antioxidants and vitamins thanyour standard spud, not to mention they’re full of fiber. How to makethem: peel and cut them into your preferred thickness, brush themlightly with olive oil, sprinkle just a bit of salt, pepper, androsemary on top, and bake (400 degrees) them until crispy. Sodelicious! And if you want to try a sweeter version, you could brushthem lightly with unsalted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon, a spiceteeming with antioxidants.Mashed potatoes and riceDon’t we all love love love our carbs. Yourhealthy challenge is going to be to start finding the carbalternatives that are just as yummy. In exchange for mashed potatoesand rice, try mashed cauliflower with a little bit of butter and creamcheese, seasoned however you season your mashed potatoes. Trust me,you may shift your alliance to that of the alternative, it’s so good. You can also refer to my own recipe of Faux-Tay-toes and Cauli-rice.For FauxTay-toes, steam cauliflower till tender; drain, then mashwith butter, cream cheese and salt and pepper to taste till you get amashed potatoes texture. For Cauli-rice, process cauliflower in a foodprocessor or blender till it resembles grains of rice; steam “rice”until tender; drain; salt and pepper to taste and fluff with a fork.ColeslawMy summer solution to this side is very simple. Examine yourcoleslaw recipe and you may notice that it calls for a creamy dressing ora good chunk of mayonnaise. Some recipes even call for sugar. Insteadof using those dressings and mayonnaise that are full of way too muchfat and calories, make up your own dressing. I would recommend mixingtogether olive oil, apple cider vinegar, a touch of local honey, andsalt and pepper to taste. The honey will replace the sugar, and whilemixing just keep in mind you need enough to cover the shreddedcabbage, not drown it. You can add a touch of Greek yogurt if you’remissing the creaminess. So try out these healthier alternatives solutions and watch yourfamily enjoy them just as much, Check out our great summer menus for more ideas at www.SavingDinner.com/.

DearAbby: Sometime ago, you printed a letter from one of your readers who was upset over her son’s polyamorous relationship. I didn’t respond then, but now that my triad is ready to come out to my boyfriend’s family (we are out to mine and to my husband’s family), I feel the need to address this lifestyle in your column and ask your advice. My husband and I have been together 10 years. We started out as swingers. When we met my nowboyfriend, it became apparent that it was going to be more serious than “play” partners. Our particular arrangement is a “V” triad, meaning I am involved with two (husband and boyfriend), but they are not involved with each other. My boyfriend is extremely important to us in every way. We all work together to make a very smooth-running, loving household. I want you and your readers to know that this IS a viable relationship with love, respect and, most important, open communication. This kind of relationship — or any, for that matter — is doomed without it. An estimated half-million people in the United States are part of polyamorous relationships. We’re not freaks in need of counseling, but people who realize that love can grow and that there is an alternative to monogamy. Abby, I would like to get some tips from someone who doesn’t readily accept this life or even know it’s out there. My boyfriend’s family is conservative and they know he lives with a married couple. We’ve all spent time together, and I think they like me. Of course, they don’t know I’m romantically involved with their son. What’s the best way to tell them about our triad? We want them to know this isn’t the end of the world and that I love him very much. I’d appreciate any advice from you or your readers on this. Until we’re out of the closet, please sign me ... — Nowhere and Everywhere DearN and E: Because you’re looking for input from someone who “doesn’t readily accept this life,” you have come to the right place. You didn’t say how long your boyfriend has been living with you and your husband, but if it has been any length of time and his parents know he isn’t involved with anyone else, it’s possible they already have some suspicions. Because they are conservative, if I were you I wouldn’t shatter their illusions. I can almost guarantee they won’t embrace you for it. If you feel you MUSTdisclose the information, then do it in the same way that you have explained it to me. But don’t expect them to jump for joy. DearAbby: At what age does a person become a senior citizen? There has been much discussion about this in our family. I looked forward to turning 50 and becoming a “semisexy senior.” AARPstarts asking us to join before 50. — Bill in Arkansas DearBill: Yes, it does. It’s called recruiting. Eligibility for senior discounts varies depending upon the establishment offering them, and there’s no limit to the age one can be “semi-sexy” as long as you are healthy, willing and able. When I was invited to join the AARP, I decided to defer becoming a senior citizen as long as possible. With the retirement age now approaching 70, it appears the government is taking its lead from me.
