C M Y K By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comS EBRING Arumble in the cooling fall air means that it is time for an annual family friendly event in downtown Sebring as motorcycle aficionados from all over the countrym ake the Run for the Heartland. Now in its eighth year, the event is scheduled for this Friday and runs through Sunday on the Circle. Over the years, the gathering of these steel horses has grown from a small idea to thousands of participants who pump money into the offseason economy. ell, I hate to quote exact numbers, but there will be a lot of people on the Circle for the event. I mean a lot, said organizer Lora Todd. The theme for this year is centered around honoring veterans, and Todd said some new items are scheduled for the chrome adventure. Mayor (George) Hensley will be doing a memorial and the Military Veterans Motorcyclists will be settinga table for one for all the POWs, Todd said. Additionally, the Military Sea Services Museum will have display in the downtown area, complete with memorabilia and authentic uniforms, and Thunder the bald eagle will be on hand doing a show. e have some great sponsors, and this year we have a couple of new events, Todd pointed out.

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Associated PressWASHINGTON Weary of getting pounded over the new health care law, Democrats are hitting the reset button for next years elections. Theyre changing the subject to Medicare. Divisions over the health care overhaul appear irreconcilable, but polls show Americans of all political leanings feel protective of Medicare. President Barack Obamas latest debt plan for Congress, issued last week, signals hes on board with the shift. Gone is a proposed increase in the Medicare eligibility age the White House put on put on the table in earlier discussions with House Speaker John Boehner. Instead, Obama threatened to veto Medicare beneficiary cuts unless Congress also raises taxes on the rich. Publicly, Republicans say bring it on. While they were nervous over the skeptical public reaction to their Medicare privatization plan this spring, they now insist they can hold their own in a debate. After all, Obama himself acknowledges that Medicare is headed toward insolvency. Its hard to see anything but the economy mattering to voters in 2012, but Medicare may be different. Its perennially a top issue for older voters, who turn out more regularly than younger people and are up for grabs. Voters 60 and older have swung between Republican and Democratic candidates over the last six House elections, according to Robert Blendon, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health who tracks public Analysis: Democrats hit reset on health care for 2012 elections See DEMOCRATS, page 3A See RUN, page 3A Changes workL ady Blue Streaks s weep aside Frostproof SPORTS, 1BAP making stridesD eleon says Avon Park i s on right track OPINION, 4A T he delicious secret to a healthy freezer LIVING, 12B By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK Members o f the city council, sitting as the Community R edevelopment Agency, dealt with several stalled projects and discussed af acade grant, which has stirred up some controversy.

Avon Park CRAlooks at having music on the Mall By TOM MURPHY APBusiness WriterINDIANAPOLIS The cost of employer-sponsored health insurance surged this year, snapping a trend toward moderate growth, but experts say these increases may slow again in 2012. Annual premiums for family coverage climbed 9 percent and surpassed $15,000 for the first time, according to a report released Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust. Premiums for single coverage rose 8 percent compared to 2010. That growth compares to increases last year of 3 and 5 percent for family and single coverage, respectively. The study does not delve into why rates jumped in 2011, but foundation CEO Drew Altman said a number of factors may have played a role. He noted that health care costs continue to rise. Insurer profits and the health care overhaul also have some impact. Companies and workers split premiums for employersponsored coverage, the most common form of health insurance in the United States. Businesses likely reacted to these cost increases by freezing retirement account contributions or giving a flat wage or smaller increase to their workers, said Helen Darling, CEO of the National Business Group on Health, a nonprofit organization that represents large employers on health care issues. orkers) basically are giving their pay raise to the health system, said Darling, who was not involved with the Kaiser study. Its really bad news. The annual study was conducted earlier this year and includes results from more than 2,000 companies across the country. It also indicates that many more families than previously believed have benefited from a popular provision in President Barack Obamas health care overhaul allowing young adults to stay on a parents health plan until they turn 26. Kaiser asked employers how many people were added to their insurance plans because of this provision and estimated that 2.3 million young adults enrolled. Last week the government had reported that the number of uninsured young adults had dropped by nearly 1 million since the law took effect, a finding independently corroborated by Gallup.

C M Y K opinion on health care. Democrats are not going to move a lot of people by focusing on the (health carel aw) but the Medicare issue could swing a group that has been voting Republican, Blendon said. In 2010, Democrats paid t he price for using $500 billion in Medicare cuts to finance coverage for the uninsured under Obamas health care overhaul. Olderv oters saw tapping Medicare as a threat, and they helped deliver the House to Republicans. Democrats want to return the favor in 2012, and theyb elieve the House-passed GOPbudget gives them a w ay. The plan by Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-W is., called for replacing Medicare for future retirees w ith a voucher-like payment. Current retirees about 48 million beneficiaries could still keep Medicare largely the way it is now. Butp eople now 54 and younger would go into a new program w hen they become eligible for Medicare. They would get a government payment top ick from a range of regulated private insurance plans. T he Congressional Budget Office found that within 20 years, 65-year-olds would ona verage be on the hook for more than two-thirds of their health care costs, almost a m irror-image of the financial split between current benefic iaries and Medicare. As expected, the House plan went nowhere in the Democratic-led Senate. No harm, no foul? N ot if Democrats have their way. Their message to seniors: The Ryan budget will become reality if the GOPwins the White House and full control of Congress. This is not a theoretical issue, it is a place where Republicans have taken votest hat are very unpopular Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said. It would be foolish of Democrats to waffle on this issue. R epublicans say theyre not backing down. According to the top domestic policy expert for 2008 GOPpresidential candidate JohnM cCain, his party was right to take on Medicare, but the timing was off. The lesson of the House budget was that its prema-t ure to start offering solutions when you havent educated the American people on whyy ou cant sustain the status quo, said economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin, nowp resident of the American Action Forum, a conservative p ublic policy center. Holtz-Eakin doesnt think Republicans harmed themselves. Medicares long-term financial problems are wellk nown. If Obama and the Democrats are going to criticize Ryans solution, they have to spell out a fix of their own. And those fixes almosts urely would require painful cuts for beneficiaries. The top GOPpresidential candidates have jousted with one another over who wouldb e quicker and more effective in overturning Obamas health care law. Less clear is what they would do about Medicare. T exas Gov. Rick Perry has been criticized for comparing Social Security to a Ponzis cheme. His stance on Medicare could prove just as controversial. Alaw hes igned this year calls for the federal government to turn o ver Medicare and Medicaid to groups of states.

C M Y K For example, most of us h ad no idea taxpayer dollars were so compartmentalized and restricted. Some funds may only be used in particular applications moneye arned by a city in providing utilities, for instance, may only be used on the utilitys ystem or require locally funded matches, or have deadlines on the moneysa vailability. Because of lower tax reve nues, for the last few fiscal years weve been making making difficult choices d oes that school really need a new cafeteria? Do those r oads have to be re-paved immediately? Does the fire department really need a bigger engine? Or a library a new air conditioner? W e have debated the need for citizens to help with the c ost of electricity at the ball fields, and decided that tax dollars shouldnt supportc harities, like the Boys & Girls Club all in an effort t o cut the cost of government at every level. Yet, for all this close s crutiny, we have not looked deeply into how much our municipal and county ordin ances, as well as state and federal laws cost us every year. We are not talking here about policy restrictions ont rade, or protecting the environment. Were talking about the high price of law ando rder. Take the average costs of running the HighlandsC ounty Jail. According to Nell Hays, the Sheriffs O ffice public information officer, The average daily population at the jail is 406.E ach of those inmates cost the tax payers $22,006 a y ear; $23,608 including medical costs. (Hays warned that the individual average per inmate includes fixed costs, like electricity and air condi-t ioning.) But there are subtle costs, t oo. When ordinances of debatable value result in additional court proceedingso r more people in jail. Take, for example, the c ountys consideration of a ban on smoking outside county buildings. H ow much would it impact the sheriffs budget, or any municipal governments budget, every time a deputy or police officer had to r espond to a call of someone smoking? What if the dispatch center required another employee to handle the additional 911 calls, what with all those smokers out there. What about the fact that reporting a smoker draws resources away from real e mergencies? The more we criminalize behavior, the more we are going to have to pay. Some people may say that s moking fines would cover the cost of the ordinance, but w e see another layer of bureaucracy, another intrus ion into a persons private life, and resources wasted t hat are needed elsewhere. S moking is only one examp le. While wearing a seat belt i s certainly a best practice, should not wearing one really be against the law? Or not being allowed to keep a vehic le with an expired registration on your own property? W here should these types of rules and regulations stop? Should wearing baggy pants be against the law? Should h ome owners be forbidden to h ave a sofa in their carport? ( In Cape Coral City they are.) In striving to become a perfect world, in other words, we may have gone al ittle overboard in what we allow and what we do not. There are, of course, much more important reasons to be wary of outlawing behavior. But the cost in time, moneya nd effort to enforce these questionable ordinances is a valid concern all of its own.

A small group of individuals seem to find negativity and wrongdoing ine very city initiative implemented. However, they offer no solutions or alternatives. My office is always open to suggestions;i f there is a better way, we will look at it. R egardless of the negativity, the council, the administration and thee mployees have accomplished many positive o bjectives during this past fiscal year. For example, we have uniquely positioned our utilities and sanitation fund where we havep aid off long standing city debt, while reducing resid ential rates for sewer and garbage by 10 percent for city residents. T he council has approved paying off two g arbage trucks, a fire engine, and a $900,000 infrastructure bond. Thisw ill lead to interest savings in the coming years, and fiscal stability. The Citys t otal debt has been reduced by over 40 percent during t his fiscal year. Starting in October of 2012, the Council approved lowering the sanitation rates by 10 percent. T he septage processing revenue program will earn close to $200,000 in added operating revenues. We have developed the only governmental enterprise locally which providese nvironmental services to commercial customers from P olk, Hardee, Glades and Highlands County. Because of the added revenues from this program, the council approved a 10 percent rater eduction in residential sewer rates for the customer base we serve within Highlands County. During the past two y ears, the council has funded the reconstruction of over 20 miles of the citys worst roads and sidewalks, and planted a number of palm trees to beautify our roadway facilities. Our entire police fleet has been upgraded. We are in the process of updating our policies and procedures. We are looking into accrediting the department. The citys fire department is looking into additional certifications to increase the level of medical services provided by our EMTs. Organizationally, we made difficult decisions. Some of these decisions dealt with personnel matters and organizational cult ure. Clearly, I wanted organizational change, and past business practices were unac-c eptable. Wehave made every effort to address concerns in a sensitive and profess ional manner. We are making changes which are needed to move the organization forward. These changes havea ngered some. For the upcoming budge t, we had a $700,000 budgetary deficit, additionally, we lost $150,000 inc ounty recreational funds, we had increased pension a nd health coverage costs of over $100,000. The council as a governmental body opted not to raise the taxation levels on city resi-d ents; instead, all city departments were scaled b ack to meet the reduced funding levels. The City of Avon Park is not uniquew ith regards to reduced general fund levels; there a re several other governmental organizations and private employers dealingw ith the same budgetary issues. These have been difficult decisions in a t ough economy. Lastly, there have been p ersonal attacks. As a relative newcomer to Highlands County, my credentials and experience have continuously comeu nder scrutiny by the same small group. I have earned a BS in Organizational Management, a BS in Civil Engineering and a MS in Engineering. I had the opportunity to enter thew ork force as a blue collar worker, and then by acquiri ng the above education; and continued professional experience, I acquired the qualifications for my current position of city manag-e r. Looking forward, this fiscal year we have implemented an annexation program which will help usp lan and manage our growth. I envision the continued investment in our infrastructure, and the efficient delivery of municipal services to our residents and visitors. While the negativity will likely continue by those who try to discredit and find fault on every city initiative implemented, they offer no real solutions or alternatives. I firmly believe in the difficult and necessary changes we are making, and proudly stand on our organizational track record. Julian Deleon is city manager for Avon Park.

Visit a park and get in touch with each otherEditor: Today marks the first day of autumn. As the weather cools this time of year, warm thoughts come to mind. Many of my fondest family memories center on the traditions of the fall especially time spent around the campfire. A recent advertisement for family camping equipment noted that campsites were the original social-networking site. I couldnt agree more. Whether youre interested in making some great family memories, longing for a trip to get the kids all back together or simply looking to take a break from your busy lives, Floridas state parks offer the perfect setting for your autumn endeavors. Regardless of your interests if youre fond of fall, youll love Florida State Parks. Among Floridas 160 state parks, more than 3,200 family campsites, 230 tent campsites, 60 youth campsites, 67 group camp areas and 5 equestrian camp sites await. Many state parks with family campgrounds often host evening campfire programs. If you join one of these, you might lean about the history of the park or hear a tall tale of the character who once inhabited the surrounding land. Florida Park Service rangers are a wealth of information and the campfire circle is great place to catch them at their best. Sitting together watching the flame of the campfire dance in the moonlight is a special experience that brings people closer together. Not only does it provide a comfortable atmosphere for recounting fond memories and a fun place to create new ones, it also provides a space to plan the following day in the park. Camping, hiking, paddling, bike riding, museum hopping, Christmas shopping weve got it all. As the director of the Florida Park Service, Im honored to remind all of Floridas citizens and visitors of the jewel in your own backyard. I encourage you to spend time around a campfire this autumn and get back in touch with each other and Florida State Parks. Donald V. Forgione, director Florida State ParksWould you like a job?Editor: Question: If you were offered a job for $15 per hour and a weekly work schedule of 40-60 hours; would you take this job? You may say $15 per hour is not a lot of money. Maybe so, but it beats the heck out of $00.00 per hour; do you not agree? You may have to relocate to accept this position, but the future might be just what this economy offered or ordered. Stop and think of all the unemployed who might find work and think of all the taxes which would be paid and the amount of revenue which could be collected. And most important, the spending stopped. The three elements equal an emergenic economy. The elected officials in D.C. must be expelled, via the ballot box. This White House is not going to allow this to happen. It is only interested in the re-election of Obama. Nothing more and perhaps a lot less. This scenario may be just around the corner if the oil industry is allowed to drill for oil and gas in these United States. The organizations responsible for the not drilling either in the offshore positions or the other areas which have been advocated by the oil industry have only one purpose in mind and that is to advance their own agenda, and folks, I have no investment in the oil or gas areas. It is about time we realize that the organic plants of the world absorb carbond dioxide and emit oxygen. This is basic chemistry. We have allowed the anti-American clubs in this country to keep us from progressing to the great country we are. We have been stagnated for the past few years due to the housing industrys lack of motion and the high rate of unemployment. The drilling and exploring for oil and gas in this country can bring all this to a conclusion. There are thousands of jobs out there waiting to be had, it only takes all of us to see to it that these anti-American units be put in their place and that is in the past. It would prove interesting to see just how hungry our people are! It would actually surprise this person if the people of our country would take steps to get rid of all the corruption and graft in our government. We will have the opportunity in about 14 months. God bless America and our troops! William C. Gates Sr. Sebring

C M Y K By CONNIE CASS and S TACYA. ANDERSON Associated PressWASHINGTON Catherine Devine had herf irst brush with an online bully in seventh grade, before shed even ventured onto the Internet. Someone set up the screen name devinegirl and, posing as Catherine, sent her classmates instant messages full of trashy talk and lies. They were making things up aboutm e, and I was the most innocent 12-year-old ever Devine remembers. I hadnt even kissed anybody yet. As she grew up, Devine, now 22, learned to thrive int he electronic village. But like other young people, she o ccasionally stumbled into one of its dark alleys. Anew Associated PressM TVpoll of youth in their teens and early 20s finds that m ost of them 56 percent have been the target of some type of online taunting, harassment or bullying, a slight increase over just twoy ears ago. Athird say theyve been involved in sexting, the sharing of naked photos or videos of sexual activity. Among thosei n a relationship, 4 out of 10 say their partners have used c omputers or cellphones to abuse or control them. Three-fourths of the young p eople said they consider these darker aspects of the online world, sometimes b roadly called digital abuse, a serious problem. T heyre not the only ones. President Barack Obama brought students, parents and experts together at the White House in March to try to confront cyberbullying. The Education Department spon-s ors an annual conference to help schools deal with it. Teen suicides linked to vicious online bullying have caused increasing worry inc ommunities across the country. Conduct that rises to the point of bullying is hard to define, but the AP-MTVpoll of youth ages 14 to 24s howed plenty of rotten behavior online, and a perc eption that its increasing. The share of young people who frequently see peopleb eing mean to each other on social networking sites j umped to 55 percent, from 45 percent in 2009. That may be partly because young people are spending more time than ever commu-n icating electronically: 7 in 10 had logged into a social n etworking site in the previous week, and 8 in 10 had texted a friend. The Internet is an awesome resource, says Devine, but sometimes it can be really negative and make things so much worse. D evine, who lives on New Yorks Long Island, experienced her share of online d rama in high school and college: Afriend passed around h ighly personal entries from Devines private electronic journal when she was 15. She left her Facebook account open on a University of Scranton library computer, and a prankster posted thats he was pregnant (she wast). Most upsetting, when she was 18 Devine succumbed to a boyfriends pressure to send a revealingp hoto of herself, and when they broke up he briefly raised the threat of embarrassing her with it. I didnt realize the power he could have over me fromt hat, Devine said. I thought hed just see it once and then d elete it, like I had deleted it. The Internet didnt create t he turmoil of the teen years and young adulthood r omantic breakups, bitter fights among best friends, jealous rivalries, teasing and bullying. But it does amplify it. Hurtful words that mighth ave been shouted in the cafeteria, within earshot of a d ozen people, now can be blasted to hundreds on Facebook. Its worse online, because everybody sees it, said T iffany Lyons, 24, of Layton, Utah. And once anything gets online you cant get rido f it. Plus, 75 percent of youth think people do or say things o nline that they wouldnt do or say face to face. T he most common complaints were people spreading false rumors on Internet pages or by text message, or being downright mean online; more than a fifth of young people said each oft hose things had happened to them. Twenty percent saw someone take their electronic messages and share them without permission, and 16p ercent said someone posted embarrassing pictures or video of them without their permission. Some of these are one-time incidents; others cross intor epeated harassment or bullying. S ameer Hinduja, a cyberbullying researcher, said numerous recent studiest aken together suggest a cyberbullying victimization r ate of 20 to 25 percent for middle and high school students. Many of these same victims also suffer from inperson abuse. Likewise,m any online aggressors are also real-world bullies. We are seeing offenders who are just jerks to people online and offline, saidH induja, an associate professor of criminal justice at F lorida Atlantic University and co-director of the Cyberbullying Research Center. And computers and cellp hones increase the reach of old-fashioned bullying. When I was bullied in middle school I could go home and slam my door andf orget about it for a while, said Hinduja. These kids can be accessed around the clock through technology. Theres really no escape. Sexting, or sending nude or sexual images, is more common among those over 18 than among minors. And it hasnt shown much increase in the past two years. Perhapsy oung people are thinking twice before hitting send a fter publicity about adults even members of Congress losing their jobso ver sexual images, and news stories of young teens risking c hild pornography charges if theyre caught. Fifteen percent of young people had shared a nude photo of themselves in somew ay or another; that stood at 7 percent among teens and 19 p ercent among young adults. But almost a fourth of the younger group said theyb een exposed to sexting in some wa. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, September 28, 2011Page 5A MARTIAL ARTS (pp rhp only pg 3 or 5; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 5 5 8 8 9 9 DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; cornerstone hospice p/u; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 6 6 5 5 4 4 O ctoberfest Sponsor; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; october fest 2011 sponsor; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 1 1 5 5 1 1 p.m., $6 per person, includes spaghetti, meat balls, small salad bar, ice tea or coffee, tax included.

its day-to-day management, was chastised by CRA. es, you really need to g et on this and get what she needs, Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray said. H oagland said he was unfamiliar with Avon Park purchasing policy. I have to learn the citys procedures f or purchases, he said, I havent followed the rules. Ive never worked on a project this big before. In the following discuss ion, it became clear that q uite a few of the proposed projects cost well less than the $10,000 that triggers the c itys requirement of a form al bidding process that can t ake 30 days. T he video ($1,300 printing materials ($1,000 for the Shop Main Street campaign were approved Tuesday night on the condition that purchasing procedures were properly followed. Project Manager Maria Sutherland was asked to review the CRAmaterials to be sure that was so. W ill Bennett, co-chair of the CRAs Main Street A dvisory Board, was in the a udience. He is one of those unhappy with Hoaglands performance. B ennett told the council that the advisory board had forwarded its recommendations to Hoagland and he failed to act on most of them. T he board had approved banners over a year and a half a go, he said, a walking tour two years ago and still nothing had progressed. Were a volunteer board, Bennett said. We approve a nd send out. He added that Hoagland, as director, should be the one making things happen. Bennett was angrier when h e talked about giving the developer of the Brickel B uilding a facade grant of $20,000. The CRAhad approved the grant at its lastr egular meeting, having been told all was in order regardi ng the application, filed in 2008. Bennett, however, said that t he developer was two years behind with his property taxes and owed about $27,000 to the city. Due diligence should h ave been done, and the bottom line, it wasnt done. It sits poorly with me to give tax dollars back to someone who hasnt paid his taxes.B ennett added there were indications the developers B rickel project was no longer financially viable. I n addition, Bennett said the advisory boards approval had been conditional. The developer was given a year to present financial reports,s ite plans and other documentation, none of which was done. Member Parke Sutherland just as strongly felt the develo per should be reimbursed f or his investment on Main Street. The idea of facade g rants, he said, is to remove s lum and blight. I think he relieved slum a nd blight, Sutherland said, referring to the outside renovation of the building on the corner of Lake Avenue and Main Street. Sutherland added that he had sought facade grants in the past himself. Nobody asked me for bank records or tax records, he said. He did the work, he was owed the money Can you say that Main Street isnt better? Mayor Sharon Schuler asked Bennett. It was conditional on X, Y and Z, Bennett replied, and X,YZ didnt happen. Due diligence should have been done Evaluations by citizens of Hoagland, while on the agenda, were discussed in passing only. I would like to apologize, Gray said, I was told the Southside CRAAdvisory B oard was not pleased (with H oagland), but I was wrong. Based on the evaluations, he is doing an outstanding job. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, September 28, 2011Page 7A G RIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 9/28/11; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 2 2 7 7 3 3 Millers AC 3x10.5 color 00012371 Classified ads get results!

CRA chastises Hoagland By DANIELWAGNER APBusiness WriterWASHINGTON More than half of cities have cut staff, canceled construction projects or raised fees this year, according to a report from the National League of Cities that catalogs the vast damage from shrunken propertyand income-tax revenue. Cities are struggling from the same problems that have left the national economy sputtering: high unemployment, a depressed housing market and weak consumer spending. Those factors have reduced the taxes that cities collect for a fifth straight year. Many have had to make up the gap by laying off employees, freezing pay, cutting services, raising fees or suspending construction projects. Two-thirds of city finance officers said they had delayed or canceled public works projects this year. Two in five reported raising fees for city services. One in five had cut spending on public safety. Nearly one in three had laid off staffers. e hoped the worst would be over at this point, but given where the economic considerations are, that seems to be very unclear here in the fall of 2011, said Christopher Hoene, director of the leagues research arm and one of the reports authors. Cities typically suffer the full force of a recession later than states and the nation as a whole do. Many cities rely heavily on property tax revenue, which can take several years to fully reflect falling home prices. By comparison, states rely mostly on income and sales taxes. Income-tax revenue usually falls steeply within months after layoffs. State sales tax revenue also drops as people spend less. The hardest-hit cities have been those that depend most on income from property taxes, the report said. Many are in the Northeast, Hoene said. By contrast, Midwestern cities tend to have steeper income taxes. And cities in the West, South and Southeast typically rely more on sales-tax revenue. All three categories of tax revenue are expected to decline in 2011, Hoene said. The report is based on a survey taken this spring and summer, before worsening economic data and fears about Europes debt woes hurt consumer confidence and caused wild swings in the stock market. Many cities are imposing broad cuts as revenue shrinks C M Y K

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comS EBRING Im done being nice, were among the first words Lady Blue Streak head coach Vanessa Sinness said after Monday nights three-set sweep of Frostproof. Which went a long way to explaining the virtual musical chairs her bench resembled, with a seemingly constant flow of substitutions throughout the match. I told them they needed to be committed and if theyre n ot doing their part, theyre not staying in the game, Sinness continued. Its about holding them accountable both on and off thec ourt. There were a couple that even showed up late for the match, so its about their dedication. And for this night, either the message was getting through, or the liberal substitutions proved a useful new tactic, keeping everyone on their toes, as the Lady Streaks rolled in the opener by a 25-9 margin. Meghan Lollis had four kills in the first-set win, two during a nine-point run that also included three service aces from Kaley Walter. Stephanie Struck also added a pair of aces and Lindsey Whittington stepp ed into the setter spot and showed herself to be a dual threat with a score as well. I wanted to mix it up and get Lindsey some time and she showed her ability Sinness said. I talked to her Lady Dragons clobber Clewiston SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, September 28, 2011 NASCAR This Week3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Lindsey Whittington stepped, and leapt, up as a dual t hreat, both setting and scoring, in Mondays win over Frostproof. B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comPerhaps its fitting that the Sebring Cross Country schedule has the team crisscrossing the state in the early going. After an impressive start at the Trinity Prep Invite inO rlando, the team saw continued improvement at home in last weeksBlue Streak Invitational. This past Saturday it was back on the road, over to the coast for the North Port Invite and the team continued to take positive strides as the girls squad placed ninth out of 27 teams and the boys were ninth out of a field of 30 teams. As a coach I could not a sk for a better day exclaimed Lady Streak head coach Krista Schult. Individually the girls all r aced well. Well indeed as Hannah Schroeder jumped to the head of the Sebring pack with a seventh-place finish w ith a time of 20:03. Four spots back was Taylor Tubbs, taking 11th in 20:21 amid the field of 188 runners. Hannah and Taylor both brought home medals in a very competitive field, Schult said. But even bigger praise w ent to Emily Smith, who placed 66th in 23:07. Emily ran one of the smartest races, Schult said. She didnt get caught up in the fast start and was able to stay right on pace the whole way The plaudits continued with Ashley White and Laura Eshelman, who both came in under 25 minutes at 24:42 and 24:52, respectively. Theyre both freshmen and still learning the ropes of the sport, Schult said. They both broke into the 24s, which was a huge accomplishment for them. As a team we were ranked 13th going into the meet, she continued. We had a goal of top-ten and the g irls all ran aggressively a nd it showed in finishing ninth. We were able to beat some big schools such as Sarasota, North Fort Mye rs and Clewiston, so were definitely heading in the right direction. The boys team was equally as impressive, with all five runners finishing in the upper half of the more than 2 00 runners and all within shouting distance of one another, time wise. Evan Wilburn took 31st in 18-minutes flat, with Eric Foster taking 46th in 18:29. Damian Foster was 65th in 18:59, Grey Lawrence 80th in 19:23 and Wesley Koning next in 81st at 19:25.

Details are still being f inalized and an official a nnouncement is expected Wednesday. The game is being planned for Florida International, where Basketball Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas is a coach. The game would be the late st in a series of exhibitions NBAplayers are participating in this offseason during the leagues lockout. James has appeared in several of those contests, including one on Sunday in Philadelphia. It will be the first time James, Wade and Bosh take the court together since last seasons NBAfinals. LeBron, Wade set to headline game in Miami Associated PressNEWYORK The Tampa Bay Rays and St. Louis Cardinals would be home if tiebreaker games aren eeded to decide wild-card berths in the playoffs. Tampa Bays 5-2 win over the Yankees and Bostons 6-3 loss at Baltimore Monday moved the Rays into an AL wild-card tie with Boston with two games to go. Tampa Bay won the season series with Boston 12-6, giving it the right to host a Thursday tiebreaker if the teams finish 162 games with identical records. The Angels were eliminated when they lost 4-3 to Texas. In the NL, St. Louis would host Atlanta in a tiebreaker on Thursday because the Cardinals won the season series 5-1. Rays, Cardinals would be home for tiebreakers By STEVEN WINE Associated PressDAVIE Linebacker Karlos Dansby says the Miami Dolphins are playing to save coach Tony Sparanos job, which might mean hes doomed. Sparano began the season on borrowed time, and an 0-3 start has left his status even more shaky. With tough road assignments looming in the next two games against the Chargers and Jets, Sparanos players acknowledged the urgent need for a turnaround. ere putting him in a tough situation, Dansby said Monday. Weve got to play better. Right now his job is on the line, and weve got to do a better job of defending it for him. Were the only ones who can. One day after a 17-16 loss Sunday at Cleveland, Sparano talked with reporters for 20 minutes but addressed his job insecurity only briefly. I dont know anything about that, he said. Im getting ready for the San Diego Chargers. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross hasnt commented. Ross embarked on a public courtship with Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh after last season, and when talks fizzled, Sparano received an extension through 2013. But for Sparano to keep his job that long, the Dolphins need to start winning. Among those attending the game in Cleveland was Rossgood friend Carl Peterson, the former Kansas City Chiefs general manager, and his presence might have been a hint the owner is considering changes. Including last season, Miami has dropped six games in a row. Problems range from penalties, a feeble pass rush and red zone ineffiSparanos status shaky with Miami 0-3 MCTphoto Dolphin head coach Tony Sparano could be on the hot seat if his squad doesnt get in the win column soon.

C M Y K ciency to mangled syntax. ere going to find out what kind of team this team is, quarterback Chad Henne said after the game. He misspoke when he added, I know one thing about these guys: Theyre not going to stop quitting. Or words to that effect. However, linebacker Kevin Burnett said things could go downhill fast. At this point its going to be, which road are we going to take? Burnett said Monday. Are we going to take the road of pointing fingers and saying, You, you, you,or, Its the coach? Or are we going to take the road of saying, OK, were going to stick together, get fixed the things we need to get fixed, and find some way to pull outa win. The defeat at Cleveland was the Dolphinsclosest game this season, which made it perhaps the toughest loss. Miami dominated all afternoon before folding at the finish. Colt McCoy completed 10 passes in the first 56 1/2 minutes, then completed nine during an 80-yard touchdown drive that gave the Browns their first lead. The Dolphinsdefense turned soft at the worst possible time. Thats where I expect some of the closers, some of the big-play players, to make those kind of plays, Sparano said. Ive got to find out who the closers are. I know who some of them should be. When Miami reached midfield with a chance to pull the game out in the final minute, Henne threw three consecutive incompletions and then an interception. It was part of a familiar pattern for Henne, who started the game 15 for 17 and went 4 for 12 the rest of the way. His passer rating is a career-best 82.4 but only 48.7 in fourth quarter, when he tends to struggle most. As is Sparanos custom, he defended the quarterback. He gave us a chance to win, the coach said. Amore meager contribution came from running back Reggie Bush, who rushed for 24 yards in 11 carries and fumbled twice. Through three games Bush has yet to make the impact anticipated, totaling just 80 yards rushing and 71 receiving. The other offensive playmaker, Brandon Marshall, has only one touchdown. The Dolphins are scoring 17.6 points a game, almost identical to last year, when Ross complained the offense needed to be more dynamic and exciting. But the most glaring statistic is zero wins, creating a gloomy mood at the Dolphins complex. I know the work put in by the coaching staff and this team, Sparano said. My greatest frustration is not seeing them smile. I want to see the guys smile.

Coming in 9th out of 30 schools was a huge accomplishment for us. The guys keep impressing me each week and the top five are all with oneminute, twenty-five seconds of each other, which is w here a team needs to be in order to see success, he continued. Grey (Lawrencely stepped it up this season. He keeps improving each w eek and his times are significantly better than last year. His and Evans experience are really helping the freshmen step up as well. It will be back on the road for the teams Friday, Oct. 7, when they head to Disneys Wide World of Sports complex for the Disney Classic. Continued from 1B and (starting setter (Lower problem with it. Which was nice because then I could put Dino on defense in the back, where shes also very effective for us. The second set started a little dicey and the Lady Bulldogs got the opening score and, after a Lollis kill evened it at 1-1, ran off a five-point run to take a 6-1 lead. But Sebring clawed its way back, with an AllieM ann ace and scores from S ydnee Connelly and Whittington getting the lead at 11-10. Frostproof tied it with the next point, but the next seven came from the Streaks to balloon the lead to 18-11 on their way to a 25-15 win. T hings played out similarly in the third set, with the Bulldogs getting out to an early lead, though smaller this time around, before Sebring evened it at 8-8 on back-to-back kills from Lollis and Connelly. Frostproof hung in for the next few points, but a Struck kill and two aces from Madison Harris highlighted a five-point run to make it 1911 before another Mann ace and Walter score paved the way to the 25-13 clincher. (Frostproof ing mode and theyre improving, Sinness said. They have a new head coach who is going to do great things for that program. Even tonight, they knew where our weakness was on serve receive and they went after it. But this was a goodm atch for us. Were heading into our district schedule now and hopefully this will be a wake-up call. That district slate got started Tuesday with a trip to Kathleen before returning home to face Winter Haven Thursday. In other Monday action, Lake Placid swept past Clewiston on the road. e came out strong the first two sets, which was great to see, head coach Linette Wells said of the 2510 and 25-6 maulings of the Lady Tigers. I made some substitutions in the third set and we struggled a bit, but we came from behind for the w in. That would be a 25-22 win that got the girls back on the bus for an early drive back home where they awaited Tuesdays visit from Frostproof for a district tilt. Continued from 1B N ews-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE K aley Walter seems to disconfigure the ball as she sends this dig to the front row Monday night. Sebring, Lake Placid cruise to wins Streaks impress at North Port By STEVEN WINE A ssociated PressMIAMI Ozzie Guillens website apparently leaked the news he has agreed to become manager of the Florida Marlins. Apost Monday night quoted Guillen announcing he was Florida-bound. The blog was taken down a short time later and replaced by a post that discussed Guillens departure from the Chicago White Sox while making no mention of the Marlins. Hours earlier, 80-year-old Marlins manager Jack McKeon said hell retire at the end of the season Wednesday. Guillens briefly posted blog said he had hoped to spend his entire managerial career with the White Sox. But there comes a point when you need to move on, and that point has come, Guillen was quoted as saying. The Florida Marlins believe I am the right man for the job to bring another World Series to South Florida. ... I cant tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of the Marlins organization. I have an unbelievable amount of respect for the Marlins, owner Jeffrey Loria, president Larry Beinfest, and general manager Michael Hill. I cant thank them enough for this opportunity and look forward to the future. I cant wait to get started! After managing in Chicago on Monday, the outspoken, sometimes outrageous Guillen announced he was leaving the White Sox but said nothing about taking another job. Florida officials havent commented on their managerial situation. The Marlins, who move into a new ballpark next spring, plan a big ceremony in conjunction with the final game at their current stadium Wednesday. Theres speculation they want to cap the occasion by introducing Guillen as manager. The buzz began more than a year ago that Guillen might be headed for the Marlins, w here he was McKeons third-base coach with the 2003 World Series champions. McKeon was coy Monday night about the possible hiring of Guillen. I like Ozzie, McKeon said. I think hes a very, very intelligent manager. He was a smart player. Hes a good man. I like him. With a smile, McKeon added, Im going to have to like him, right? Guillen worked for Loria as the Marlinsthird base coach in 2002-03. After they won the World Series, Guillen became the White Sox manager that November. The Marlins are staggering to a last-place finish in the NLEast. With the team moving to a new home and making a push to become a contender, Loria has said he wants an experienced manager. Guillen would be the Marlinsfourth manager since early 2010, and his relationship with management could create some offt he-field excitement. Strong-willed Joe Girardi lasted only one season with Florida in 2006, clashed with Loria and others in the organization, and was fired shortly before being chosen NLmanager of the year. Guillens quest for a new deal with the White Sox was denied, so he asked to be released from his contract, and that request was granted. With that, his eight-year run that included a World Series title in 2005 was over. T he White Sox said they retain the right to compensation should Guillen accept a m anagerial position with another major league team for the 2012 season. Guillen had a 678-617 record with the White Sox. Guillen is the only manager in franchise history to lead the White Sox to more than one division or league title. Chicago also made the playoffs under Guillen in 2008, but they will finish under .500 this season. Guillens blog post on joining Marlins taken down C ourtesy photo Don Elwell was a featured guest on Ed Lynchs Sports Talk show on Saturday, Sept. 24.

Coach Raheem Morris said Monday that the team was awaiting results of tests and would not speculate on how long the second-year pro will be sidelined. Although Morris says Lynch will compete in practice with Larry Asante to be Grimms replacement, the sixth-year pro played most of the second half of Sundays 16-13 victory over Atlanta and started five games in Grimms absence last season.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Last weeks speaker was Kathy Main, longtime social work-e r, Lake Placid Noon Rotary member, and recent visitor to The Dark Continent of Africa. When one thinks of Africa, usually one thinks ofl ions, elephants, giraffes and zebras. Main had a chance to see those, but her trip opened her eyes to much more. Main applied for the trip t hrough a friend in Maryland and was accepted t o go.The group landed in Nairobi in June. Main told club members a bout and showed a slide of a slum of 800,000 people. S he said it was very emotional for her, as many of them were so glad to have a home made of tin and around 6-by-8-foot, wherem any times more than four to five people lived in each h ome. Main was in Africa for 14 days and met Mary, whoh ad built five schools there to help the slum residents g et an education. Main realized how fortunate Americans are in our country by meeting the smilingc hildren and adults that were so happy to have a v ery modest home and a chance to attend a school. The conditions were very b ad with sewage and trash running in a ditch through t he streets. The Lake Placid Noon Rotary also was proud to have member MerryC resswell, longtime Lake Placid librarian (retired), a nd her sisters, Betty Parker, Janice Dougherty, and Martha Crosbie. M errys sisters live next to her on each side and one a cross the street. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, September 28, 2011Page 7B H ometown Biz; 9.347"; 13"; Black plus three; process, hometown biz dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 6 6 3 3 0 0 4 4 Courtesy photo A recent visit to Tobys Clown Museum and gift shop was enjoyed by many as Al Big Al Pelski, president of Tobys Clown Foundation, and Keith Toby Stokes, founder of it all, explained the historical content of all the clown memorabilia at the museum to a large tour group.

C M Y K SEBRING After a delightful two months spent in central and upstate New York, we recently returned to Sebring. Until Hurricane Irene dumped vast amounts o f rain on the Catskill Mountains area and New England, we had gorgeouss ummer weather. The next w eek, Tropical Storm Lee added the finishing touch w ith great flooding devastation, again especially in the Catskills; then to Binghamton area and into Pennsylvania. We were in the U tica, N.Y., area at the time and experienced five days of rain including the day we left. Thankfully, we left at the right time and did not experie nce the major flooding areas of the Susquehanna River in B inghamton and P ennsylvania. Water is such a powerful force; we just e xtend our heartfelt prayers to all those victims. O ur Verizon-employed son h as been in the Albany, Oneonta, Gilboa Dam area of the Catskills since Aug. 28 with no end in sight for r epairing the destruction to the Verizon network serving t hose areas. We feel so b lessed to return safely to Sebring and elated to see l awns and gardens green and prolific with no hurricanep roblems thus far. After quite an absence, we welcome new park managers Donna and Phil Belden, originally Vermont residents. T hey managed a Rickertowned park in Largo for nine y ears before moving to V irginia for two years. Apparently the urge to return t o Florida struck and they arrived here in August. Their t wo house pets, Harley and Sadie, are hairless rat terriers who often give their friendly barks as you pass by. I learned this particular breedo f dogs are an excellent choice for allergy sufferers. W e extend a warm welcome and trust their stay is pleasant and rewarding to everyone. O n a sad note, a lovely lady we have been privileged to have as a neighbor for five years, Dixie Cooper, died on Aug. 30. Dixie was a very elegant, classy lady and we enjoyed her very much. She loved her birthplace, Alpena, Mich. and shared so many family stories I felt almost a part of the town. When you shared a homemade dish or a visit with Dixie, her face just lit up with gratitude. At the time we met Dixie, she was a very active bridge player three days a week and seemed to be always on the go. We celebrated her 92nd birthday on April 30 at Ruby Tuesdays with other friends. On June 26, EMS took her to Highlands Regional and shes pent her remaining days between the hospital and The Palms. Our condolences to daughter, Lana of Sebring, two sisters and a brother inA lpena, Mich., two granddaughters, Amy (Texas) and Stephanie (South Carolina and six grand-children. Am emorial service is planned i n Alpena on Oct. 7. We miss you, Dixie. I would be remiss without mentioning Dixies closef riend, Geri Spangler of our park. Geri and Dixie had been friends since 1994 and I have great respect for thed edication and care Geri shared with Dixie. Every day a fter her Bob Evans tour, Geri stopped to check on Dixie for as long as I canr emember. Geri just had a heart of cheerfulness, love a nd devotion for this lady and brought much happiness to Dixie over the past years.T hank you, Geri. We were sorry to hear Bill L aPeer had been hospitalized recently. He is home and recovering at present. Alsoh eard Hal Hammel is recovering from a fall back home i n Indiana. Our thoughts and prayers for all. Many park residents had the travel bug this summer in addition to our regular snow-b irds. The Wyses, Days, Lungrens and Grossmans all e njoyed visiting the lovely state of Alaska at various times over the spring ands ummer. The Huxmans toured Copper Canyon, M exico amid their other travels. The Wyses also visited family in Missouri, Illinois and Kansas. Gisela and Wolfgang visited Tennessee.T he Henneberrys are still touring in their new motorhome were told. The Boisverts traveled the New England states and visitedo ur New Hampshire Park residents. Ray and Shirley Young returned from Pennsylvania and visited family in London, England.T he Wilsons are returning from a Las Vegas, Grand C anyon and Utah national Park Tour. There may be more but these are the travelers Im aware of. We are enjoying the M onday morning coffee (and dessert smorgasbord) get togethers plus the water aerobics on Tuesday and Thursday. The year-around residents enjoyed a Labor Day get together picnic at the clubhouse. Soon the snowbirds will be returning and well be into another active fall and winter schedule. Upcoming October birthdays include: Lee Niedzielski, Bill LaPeer, Jim Burns, Bill Robinson, Geri Spangler, Georgine Buswell, Hal Johnson, Ron Quesnel, Judy Rogers, LarryT rombley, Debbie Brown, Earl Buswell, Marv Crow, Jim Lewis and Vivian New.

If were in a kitchen cooking, chances are well beusing salt ats ome point, whether its searing, boiling, grilling,roasting, or baking. The chances that salt is involved probablyaver-a ges in at 99 percent. But did you know that there are actuallydifferences in salt? Its so common, I think we often assume that allsalt is the same, butt here is actually a great deal of variety. The most c ommon salts we tend to see in grocery stores are table salt,kosher salt, ands ea salt. But what makes one different from t heother? Ordinary table salt is the most commonly used salt. Itstypically the cheapest and the most processed.I s scraped down tillmost minerals are removed from i t and tends to have the least flavorin comparison to other salts. S ea salt is pretty straightforward: itsharv ested from the sea. To get it processed, its generally evaporatednaturally byb eing placed in clay trays in the sun, and with thismethod its a lot less p rocessed than regular table salt. K osher salt is known for its easy dissolvability; its just regulartable salt rolled out into a flake, easy to dissolve, thoughl essdense, therefore less mass, than table salt and therefore its commonto use a lot less. Now that weve covered salt basics, it gets a lot more complicated. T here is a grey salt known for its moistness. M any consider it the bestquality of salt around because most of the minerals stay intact. Oneof my favorite salts i s a pink Himalayan salt. It really is a lightpink tint a nd typically comes in a grinder for a good fresh f lavor.Some of the minerals found in Himalayan salt are calcium, iron,copper, potassium, and magnesium. Beneficial minerals to yourm eal youprobably didnt even realize you were a dding by simply using thisparticular salt. So theres just a little i nformation on salt, its more than yourstandard o ld salt shaker. And if youre feeling a little crazysometimes you canf ind even smoked salt crystals, or other naturalflavor infused salt. Its a whole s alty world you probably didnt evenrealize existed.

Common cooking salts Dinner Diva Leanne Ely DearAbby: My mother and I had a debate about who should pay for dates. She thinks the man should pay, espe-c ially if sex is involved because you dont want to give it away for free. I disagree. I say the man should pay for the first, and maybe the second date. After that, they can agree to alternate. I have been seeing a wonderful guy for about six months. Im pretty sure I make more money than he does, but even if I didnt, I dont feel the need to be supported. I dont agree the guy should always have to pay. Times have changed since my mother dated. Whats the general consensus on the subject these days? Independent Woman in Maryland DearIndependent: The consensus is that youre right. Times have changed since your mother dated, and furthermore, paying for a date does not give the payer any guarantee of sexual favors. While in some regions, cultures and age groups there may be the expectation that the man pays, in todays world many women expect to pay their fair share after the first couple of dates. In other words, its common to split a check or share the cost of an evenings dinner and entertainment. The idea that a woman should put out for the price of a burger is, thankfully, passe. And thats for the best, dont you agree? DearAbby: I have known Arthur for more than 20 years. Since Day One, he has wanted more than friendship, but I made it clear that I never wanted more than a platonic relationship. I care about him, but have never had romantic feelings for him. We spend a lot of time together between relationships with other people. (I was married for eight years out of our 20-year friendship.) Arthur comes over we hang out, sometimes share a meal or watch a movie, etc. Then we go to sleep in my bed. He sleeps in my bed, where theres no hanky-panky. Im content with things as they are. He makes me laugh and I feel good about myself. However, lately I sense hes becoming too attached. I worry that I might be leading him on even though Ive made it clear that I dont want anything romantic or sexual. After 20 years, there are no gray areas left to analyze my intentions. My friends think what Im doing is wrong, that I might be keeping Arthur from moving forward in his life. Keep in mind that I encourage him to go out with friends and to date. Am I doing anything wrong that may be hurting him in an indirect way? Platonically Connected in Texas DearPlatonically Connected: You are happy the way things are. Arthur appears to have accepted the relationship on your terms. While he may secretly hope that one morning you will roll over, open your eyes and realize that hes Prince Charming, you have been honest with him from the begin-n ing. I see no reason to end a relationship that is rewarding to both of you because your friends are meddling. Your friends should mind their own business. DearAbby: I have a lot of health problems and need my rest. We have even disconnected the doorbell. So why do people ignore the Do Not Disturb sign on the front door and knock anyway? Disturbed in Eugene, Ore. DearDisturbed: Not knowing whos doing the knocking, Im guessing theyre people who are desperate to sell you something. Certainly no friend would behave that way.

Its a lesson that the gang in Riverdale including Archie, Veronica, Jughead and others will learn firsthand this week. The national network of homes, which provides free or inexpensive lodging for families near hospitals, is making an appearance in the issue of Archie Comics being released Wednesday. In the 70th anniversary issue, No. 625, the kids at Riverdale High School find out that the younger sister of one of their fellow students is seriously ill with cancer and has to spend time in the hospital. The gang chips in to help to get the family to the Ronald McDonald House New York. That realization sparks an epiphany for Archie and the others who, in turn, visit the house in New York City and volunteer their time and service, playing musical instruments, talking to kids and families and helping make things easier for those who are living there. Archie is giving 100 percent of the profits from the issue to the New York Ronald McDonald House. Archies 70th looks at cancer, help for families through Ronald McDonald House
