C M Y K B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING We need help, said Diana Walker. The Heartland Idol was her idea well, hers and her grandfathers. Thea nnual talent show, inspired by the television program American Idol, l aunched in the summer of 2004 and has grown ever since. In fact, success is part of the p roblem from 20 contestants total in the first year, as many as 20 sign up a n ight. With that many singers, it takes weeks to arrive at five finalists. This year the show took a hiatus, partly b ecause of scheduling conflicts, but also because the work had become overwhelming. s grown beyond what the five us can manage, Walkers aid.

Every single day I am out in the community Im asked about it, she added. The best thing, Walker and Jones both said, would b e for people to step forward to help. We pretty much need a steady, dedicated group of volunteers, Walker said. Don Elwell, from the very beginning the infamous master of ceremonies, said volunteering did not have to be a burden. Volunteers are needed at all times, to set-up, make food sales and break-down. No one has to volunteer six hours a night. Twelve or 24 people could get the work done by each working a couple of hours.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The Florida G ulf Coast Chapter (Highlands District A lzheimers Association held its second annual walk in Downtown Sebring Saturdaym orning. More than 100 registered w alkers gathered at the circle just after 8 a.m. to walk in memory of fathers, mothers, a nd grandparents who all suffer from the disease. Lisa Rodriguez, Highlands County program specialist, along with her colleaguesB oard Chairman Alan Silverglat, Special Events Coordinator Katie Hood, and President/CEO Gloria Smith organized the event, whicht akes place 11 times throughout the state each year. In Highlands County alone 5,438 families dealw ith Alzheimers. Thats not counting the ones who dont make it public or who struggle silently, said Hood. Rodriguez works with vari ous agencies to help support these individuals and especially the families and caregivers of seniors who struggle with the disease. Weve partnered with the Highlands County Sheriffs Office to create what is called Safe Return Medical Alert program. Wanderers receive temporary IDs so that they are returned to care givers and their families. The Sheriffs Department get the temporary IDs to the wanderers immediately and their permanent IDs are given to them in about six to eight weeks, explained Rodriguez. With continuous support and fundraising, the Alzheimers Association is able to do new studies and provide new support services for families and caregivers. One of the newest things we have is called ComfortZ one. It is a GPS system. People with Alzheimers wear these pager-like devices and once they get out of certain radius, or they wanderp laces that arent usual, the GPS sends a text to the family member or caregivers cell phone, said Smith. Its a very helpful system, it lets them keep their independence and us keep and eye on them. According to Smith, 1 in 8 people over the age of 65 suffer for Alzheimers. Within the 17 counties that make up the Gulf Coast chapter, more than 196,000 people deal with the disease. That number is more than most states have all together. Its partly because of the amount of elderly we have in Florida. Its a retirement state, but people tend to ignore Alzheimers and the elderly and thats reallyu nfortunate. e try to raise awareness and let people know that there is support out there for families. You dont have tos uffer alone, Smith said. The nationwide Walk to End Alzheimersinitiative last year raised approximately $10,000. Alzheimers is not a mental illness. You arent crazy and people shouldnt look at it that way. Its a disease. We are working hard to find a cure, but there are support systems and ways to slow progression, said Smith. For more information or confidential help with Alzheimers call 1-800-2723900. The local office is located at 134 N. Ridgewood Drive. Call 385-4444 for information.

According to Assistant Chief Michael Morse of the Highlands Lakes Fire Department, trucks wered ispatched at 8:05 a.m. to 2376 N. Highlands Blvd., just a few blocks up from thef ire department. Upon arrival, flames were clearly visible and a secondc all went out at 8:10 a.m. to the Avon Park Fire D epartment for mutual aid. Morse stated that a preliminary report shows thef ire originally started in a childs bedroom and was c aused by a lamp that was covered. The mother extinguished the fire, but it restarted while the mother was taking thec hild to school. Upon returning home, the mother n oticed the flames and called the fire department. It looks like the fire rekindled while the mom was out, Morse said. With both Highlands Lakes and Avon Park work-i ng in concert, the fire was contained to just two bedrooms and extinguished before it consumed the rest of the home. We were lucky that the fire was contained to just the bedrooms. There is a lot ofs moke damage, but the guys worked hard to save the rest of the house, Morse said onF riday. Morse reported that no i njuries resulted form the fire and that the fire was declared out after approxi-m ately 15 minutes on the scene. The Highlands County Fire Service helped with salvage, but it was great work from Avon Park and Highlands Lakes that savedt he house, Morse added. The fire was declared a ccidental, Morse said.

Drake currently teaches middle school and is a former high school American Government teacher and Career Counselor who lives in Moore Haven with her husband of 32 years, J.W. J.W. works for a local pump company and they have a small beef cattle operation. They have two children. Their oldest, Joey Drake, is a cattle rancher, and is married to Erin (Dakin works on her family's dairy farm in Myakka City where they are raising two children. The Drakes daughter, Chelsa, is a third grade teacher and is married to Tuyl Oxer of Venus, also a cattle rancher, and they have two children. My grandchildren have made me realize that the future of Florida is very important to me. Many of Drakes experiences in the classroom produced her desire to serve in state government. My students and I have done some very interesting, and at times controversial, research projects on issues such as: Lake Okeechobee and the Caloosahatchee River water conditions, the need for more power plants in Florida, and immigration issues that directly affected my students. Hopefully, my former students will want to work with me on this grassroots political campaign. I am not a politician, so I need everyones help. Contact Drake at P.O.

The HCAis stressing that the need for single day events to draw tourism is asi mportant as long stays when it comes to bringing money into Highlands County. They also argue that the current process to apply for tourism dollars is a complicated one designed to keep the money flowing into hotels and does nots upport small organizations and their one-day events. T he groups have to go hat-in-hand to the Tourism Council and ask for them to pay for their event after they have it, andt he HCAsays that is stifling to the future of tourism. A greed. There needs to be a new mix of how the money is directed, because it is not clear that the way we are currently spending the $300,000 every year is actually working. Commissioner Don Elwell was right when he stated during a Group forB etter Government that we are using 1990 advertising and trying to attract 2012 tourists. The TDC has to adapt to the changing technology and changing times. That includes allowing for a look into differ-e nt ways to promote Highlands County. Commissioner Greg Harris was at the m eeting with Elwell, as was Jack Richie, showing that those three commissioners are sensitive of the needs oft he economic community. Harris asked how much was being s pent on Culture and Tourism, and John Scherlacher of the TDC answered zero. The county ordinance clearly shows that 17 percent shall be spent on arts and c ulture. Additionally, 10 percent on the l akes. Thats not being done, and the Tourism Council has put up barriers to keep that from happening, it seems. Now it is true that the TDC advertises with brochures and DVDs and the website, all of which promote Highlands County, and a few support arts and culture. B ut it was clear that 17 percent, as p rescribed by ordinance, is not being spent where it is supposed to be spent. The voters approved the tax on the s ales pitch that all boats would rise with the tourism tax and the ordinance layso ut the amount to be spent. The HCAis right to ask for their share as outlined by county ordinance, and Commissioners n ow know that zero dollars are being s pent where the ordinance directs. The HCAis asking, and they have p resented great ideas for promoting H ighlands County. So, why not just w rite them a check and let them spend the money as they see fit? Just write the HCA a check Why not just write them a check? Thats the question that is now floating around the community about the requests from the Heartland Cultural Alliance when it comes to sharing tourism dollars. I will admit I havent b een paying a lot of attention to the Occupy Wall Street folk. You know, theg roup of people whove been camping out in New Y orks financial district since mid-September. Oh sure, I caught snippets of news here and there about them. And I knowt hat their example is being followed in other major c ities. But the movement has floated just below my interest level for the pastw eeks. Then I began to feel g uilty about it. The whole thing is a major news item. How could I, a columnist, l et this all pass without saying something about them, even if it was to poke fun at them in some form or fashion?After all,t hats kind of my job description. So I decided to do some homework about the movement so that I might soundh alf-intelligent when I wrote about it. Besides, m aybe theres a reader out there as clueless as I. O n the groups website (yes, the movement has a website) the group describes itself as leaderless resistance movementw ith people of many colors, genders and political persuasions.They claim to represent or be the 99 percent who are against theg reed and corruption of the 1 percent that single percentage consisting of those on Wall Street, I suppose. Trying to figure out what the group is after is difficult, because despite having a decent looking website they dont seem to have a cohesive message. Theyre against greed and corruption. Good for them, so am I. But what do they mean by that?The same thing I do? Im also curious about their percentages. According to an article on the New York Times website that explains the movement and whats been going on with it so far, one group member supposedly said, percent of the people have 99 percent of the money Id love to see some data o n this. I dont believe it, though I admit it sounds catchy. Where are they getting their numbers? And besides making the n ews and actually being a part of my lowly little colu mn, what exactly are they accomplishing? Im not knocking their F irst Amendment rights. As long as they obey the law I f igure they can pretty much say whatever they want. T hats not to say Ill agree with everything they stand for. There is a definite anti-capitalist thread running through thep rotests and a tangible lean to the left politically. While there are areas we might agree on, I cant say that the group and I would-n t end up in a shouting match on a lot of other topi cs. I assume they want their m ovement to stand for more than piles of trash and unwashed bodies. That they want to change things for the better (though Imn ot sure we agree on what would be better). Is sitting in New Yorks financial district going to get them there?Or do they run ther isk of becoming a footnote in the news, as the protests grow old and no one can really put together a message that those of us on the outside of the group can appreciate and get behind? Its one thing to sit on a sidewalk and complain with a few hundred friends. Its quite another to work at making things better. If the Wall Street occupiers fail to make that distinction, they are doomed to be no more than a blip in the news cycle. And a topic for my column. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the staff of the News-Sun. Occupy Wall Street? Lauras Look Laura Ware Apologies to TDCEditor: On Saturday, I made a private apology to the TDC, each member and especially Chairman (Barbara I feel terrible about what happened.I was so anxiety ridden because my husband works like 16 hour days for HCAfor no money and he is such an honest, wonderful person.I was afraid he would not get to speak, especially since he was standing up for 20 minutes and they would not call on him. One of the members of the TDC said that letting people apply for grants and then holding them accountable for how many hotels got overnight visits was a waste of time, surely anyone who applied for the money would fudge the numbers, actually saying that anyone who applied would lie about the numbers to support their position.I was embarrassed that he called people dishonest and said so. TDC, Chairman Stewart, citizens of Highlands County, please accept my apology for interrupting and saying to Chairman Stewart to shut up.I am so very sorry. Also, Jonathan Lambright, thank you so much for your kind words about my husband Fred.I am more emotional than he is because I was defending him. Gail Leavitt SebringGet of teachers backsEditor: I am tired of politicians and media reports that criticize the job being done by public school teachers! I say lets get off teachersbacks. Lets be grateful and understanding of the good work that the huge majority of teachers are doing. Lets look at teachers. They must graduate from a four-year college. They also need to meet all the requirements dictated by the State Department of Education. They must pass tests to insure competence in both their teaching major and in general education. When they apply to the school district for a teaching position, they are interviewed for the job by both a principal and a team of teachers. Once they secure a teaching job, they need to complete additional course work to keep their license valid. Many teachers continue to study and earn advanced degrees. Many middle and high school teachers see 150 students or more each day. These children are from all social economic levels. Some have high aptitudes to learn, but others do not. Some have had good early childhood learning experiences and others have not. Teachers work with some students whose basic language is not English. They also work with some children from homes that show little support for education. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell was recently quoted saying that teachers are not paid at a rate corresponding to the importance of the work they do. I say teachers earn our overwhelming support each and every day. James E. (Jim Sebring EDITORIALPAGEPOLICYMake sure to sign your letter and include your address and phone number.

Florida Hospital provided brightly colored t heme gift baskets for the event. The baskets included cool trinkets and items as well as a free mammogram. Alot of women are unemployed, which means they dont have medical insurance, w hich means they cant afford a mammogram. These mammograms are important and that is why we are raffling them off for these w omen, said Jolli. Florida Hospital gave away one gift basket and mammogram every hour. Several other door prizes were given away throughout the event. P atrons spent the evening enjoying theme desserts and a light dinner as they enjoyed local singers and performers.

C M Y K dont win, and get over their fear of performing in public. Shannon Marrero, who w on the 2010 competition, agrees. My daughters are a lready asking when they can sing.

That subject raises two i ssues: There is a difference of opinion about leaving the Sebring Historic Circle to find a weatherproof site and there is no money to renti ndoor space. On the one hand, Elwell points out the event was born on the Circle, which has a unique charm, and one of thee vents important side benefits is bringing people downtown. Marrero agrees. I hate to see (Idol she said. Its the heart of the community, with a smalltown feel. People bring their c hairs, and sit back, the flagpole is right there with the memorial honoring our war h eroes.

One very rainy day they canc eled the show, only to have the rain stop in plenty oft ime. ith an indoor site, Jones said, weather isnt a problem, not only rain but the heat, which makes the con-t estants sweat in their costumes. I cant believe there isnt some business out there ready to say, Hey, well openo ur doors to you for this event. As for money, Jones said the Heartland Idol is absolutely non-profit. Abusiness for the last several years it has been Cross Country Automotive becomes a title sponsor, pro-v iding the first-place prize money (for the adult division t hat is $2,000). Other businesses donate smaller amounts to cover the otherc ash prizes. Food is sold at the event, b ut the proceeds go to buying supplies for the next show. At the end of the season,w hatever is left over is donated to charity in the past The Childrens A dvocacy Center, the Red Cross and Relay for Life, h ave been recipients. Walker is willing to consider new ideas. Im open to changing it up, she said. Im not opposed to ano rganization coming in to help. We just dont want to compromise the event. We want to keep it growing and keep it interesting. Said Marrero, Im behind it, no matter what. C ontact Walker at diana_party4u@live.com.

City Clerk Cheryl Tietjen said she had noticed them eeting, and that the newspapers were contacted. Mayor Sharon Schuler agreed that the meeting was properly noticed. The reasoni t was being held at 5:30 in the evening, she added, was to fulfill the 24-hour advance notice requirement. Council member Parke Sutherland said if there werea ny questions at all, the meeting should be postp oned. When Schuler asked the audience if any individualsh ad objections, and no one responded, she decided to g o ahead. There was a noticeable pause when she requested a motion from council members, but a motion was madeb y Terry Heston. Sutherland opened disc ussion, saying he had several concerns. For example, he worried t hat the fourth Whereas paragraph Whereas both t he City and Rowan desire to resolve all outstanding matters between them in ane ffort to limit any further litigation expenses, provided that neither the City nor R owan admit that either of them has engaged in any w rongdoing or unlawful conduct did not expressly prohibit non-city officials or employees from discussing the case in thef uture. Some of us may run for re-election; it does not p rohibit a discussion in a future race, he said. Sutherland said the negotiated compensation was unclear. (The agreement says only less deductions,h e said. Spell out what the deductions are. F or example, the agreement states that, Payout of unused, accrued leave of4 09.93 hours in the amount of $13,402.55, less deduct ions for the 5 percent employee pension contribution and Social Security, Medicare and Federal Income Tax withholdings. I dont know if the state (mandates t ions, Sutherland said. He also didnt agree with a particular sentence in the a greement which stated that he had to agree to not apply f or any city position, unless he is given permission by the city manager. City managers have a shelf life, Sutherland said. He wants the language to s pecifically state Rowan may never apply to work for t he city again. Finally, Sutherland disagreed with a paragraph stating that the materials generated by the investiga-t ions into Rowans investig ation of elected officials and city employees should be kept in a file maintained by the citys police department as an Internal Affairs matter, and not in Rowans personnel file. Why house (the mate ria ls) in a separate location, Sutherland asked. The items should be in his pers onnel file. At that moment city attorney Gerald Buhr returned to t he question of whether the meeting had been properly noticed. What did you see or n ot see? he asked Grizzard. I looked at the website yesterday and today, and I d idnt see (a notice w ebsite, Grizzard said. S chuler again asked t he a udience if anyone could s peak to the issue. Tom Macklin, a former mayor who continues to foll ow the city closely, rose to s ay he had checked the website the night before and h adnt seen any notice him self. LilyAnn Bermudez, administrative services c oordinator, said the packet for the special meeting was posted on the web site, but it didnt advertise it. Buhr recommended, In the abundance of caution, l ets reschedule and make s ure its done right. The meeting w as adjourned. Another special meeting will be scheduled, if possible on Monday night. The time had not been set as of p ress time on Saturday. Continued from page 1A N ews-Sun file photo by KATARASIMMONS Fans cheer during a past Heartland Idol performance on the Circle.

David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol, announced that the Patrol will participate in Operation Safe Driver Oct. 16-22. The national campaign, organized by Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance in partnership with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, targets drivers of passenger and commercial vehicles. In fatal crashes that involve commercial trucks, 88 percent of the time the crash is attributable to driver error by both car and truck drivers. During Operation Safe Driver, troopers will be out in full force performing driver safety inspections on commercial trucks and targeting unsafe driving habits on the roadways. Operation Safe Driver will have a razor sharp focus on targeting and taking aggressive enforcement action for poor decisions made by drivers of commercial vehicles as well as passenger vehicles operating unsafely around them. Activities such as Operation Safe Driver have had a noticeable effect, said Brierton. The number of commercial vehicle related crashes in Florida is at its lowest since 2001.

If you’re enrolled in Medicare, mark these dates on your calendar: Dec. 7, 2011. That’s the end of Medicare’s 2012 Open Enrollment period, which started Saturday. That’s a month earlier than in the past. Aside from exceptions made for a few special circumstances, this is the only period when current enrollees can make coverage changes for the coming calendar year. Medicare provides health care benefits to people age 65 and older and those under 65 with certain disabilities or end-stage renal disease. For most people, the initial enrollment period is the seven-month period that begins three months before the month they turn 65. If you miss that window, you may enroll between Jan. 1 and March 31 each year, although your coverage won’t begin until July 1. Medicare offers several plans and coverage options, including: — Medicare Part A, which covers in-patient hospital, skilled nursing facility and hospice services, as well as home health care. People are usually enrolled automatically upon turning 65 or after having received Social Security disability benefits for 24 months. There’s usually no monthly premium. — Medicare Part B, which covers doctor’s services, outpatient care and some preventive services. It’s optional and has a monthly premium. Most people are automatically enrolled at the same time they begin Part A coverage, but you can opt out by following instructions accompanying your Medicare card (mailed about three months before your 65th birthday). — Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) plans, which are privately run alternatives to traditional Parts A and B. Structured like HMO or PPO plans, they often include additional benefits such as prescription drugs, dental, vision and wellness programs. Monthly premiums may be higher than regular Part B, but they usually have lower deductibles and copayments; also, they require that you use the plan’s provider network. — Medicare Part D, which covers prescription drugs. It’s optional and carries a monthly premium. These privately run plans vary widely in terms of cost, copayments and deductibles and medications covered. During Medicare Open Enrollment you can: — Switch from original Medicare Parts A, B and D to a Medicare Advantage plan, or vice versa. — Switch from one Advantage plan to another. — Switch from an Advantage plan that offers prescription coverage to one that doesn’t, and vice versa. — Join a Part D plan, switch from one plan to another, or drop Part D coverage altogether. People currently enrolled in Medicare Advantage have another opportunity to make changes during a second period called Medicare Advantage Disenrollment. Between January 1, 2012, and February 14, 2012, you can switch back to original Medicare Parts Aand B coverage, with the option to join Part D as well. However, during this period you cannot: — Switch from original Medicare to Medicare Advantage. — Switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another. — Switch from one Part D plan to another. Understanding and choosing the right Medicare options can be complicated and time-consuming. For assistance, call 1-800-6334227 or visit Medicare’s website, www.medicare.gov, where you’ll find: — Helpful publications, including Medicare & Your 2011, a highly detailed guide that explains Medicare in easy-to-understand language. — Tools to compare prescription plans, hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies and Medigap plans in your area. — Resources to find local doctors and other practitioners who participate in Medicare. — Services covered by various Medicare plans.

Ludwig joins Ridge Real Estate team Associated PressORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. — President Barack Obama cast himself as a savior of the U.S. auto industry Friday, standing in a onceshuttered Michigan assembly plant with the president of South Korea to boast of a new trade deal and the auto bailout he pushed through Congress. “The investment paid off,” Obama declared. At his side, South Korea’s President Lee Myung-bak donned a Detroit Tigers cap to assure U.S. auto workers that the new U.S.-South Korea trade pact wouldn’t steal away American jobs. “This is the pledge that I give you,” said Lee, acknowledging the suspicion with which U.S. labor unions view trade agreements. In a rare political spectacle of a visiting head of state on a field trip outside Washington with the U.S. president, both sounding boosterish about American industry, Lee said the trade pact “will create more jobs for you and your family. And it is going to protect your jobs.” The trip took Obama to a state that is key to his re-election hopes and where unemployment is the third highest in the country. Obama has been paying special attention to Michigan; his most recent visit was to deliver a Labor Day speech in Detroit. Obama, Lee pitch trade deal in Michigan

C M Y K Wade makes an estimated $25 million to $30 million annually in onand off-court earnings. He knows why fans are upset that players and owners cant find a solution when the nations economy is struggling and unemployment is soaring. Not at one point have we asked for more money, Wade said. Ive heard people say The players are being greedyHow are we being greedy? ... People need to get in a room and understand what really needs to be done so everyone not just the owners, not just the players can continue to grow with the game. Thats where weve got to come to an agreement. Page 4BNews-SunSunday, October 16, 2011w ww.newssun.com D R. ROTMAN, DARRIN; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 10/2,9,16,23,30; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 4 4 0 0 3 3 E.O.

The back line of defense saw Jamie Wirries, MacKenzie Myers and Chacon all chip in with six digs apiece and MLynn McKibbon set up the offense with 14 assists. We also passed a lot better than we did (Tuesday) at Lake Placid, Devlin said. It was just a good night. It was Senior Night and the girls seemed really energized by that, especially the seniors, who all played witha little extra intensity, wanting their last home game to really count. The season done, the team has all this week to ready for the upcoming District 10-4ATournament at DeSoto beginning Monday, Oct. 24. Im really not sure where we will be seeded yet, Devlin said. But were likely either third or fourth, with Frostproof right there. It doesnt really matter if its third or fourth because I think those twos eeds play each other. I just want to get that win so we have another chance against Lake Placid.Dogs push DragonsS peaking of which, they Lady Dragons went out with a win as well, though a lingering issue did show up in a five-set victory at Frostproof. After cruising to 25-11 and 25-12 wins in the first t wo sets, head coach Linette Wells sensed an well-inhand outcome and cleared the bench for the third set. And while it was competitive, it allowed Frostproof s ome momentum with a 2519 win. Mixing some starters back in portions of the fourth set, the Lady Bulldogs were renewed and Lake Placid fell back into that familiar trap. We played down, Wells said. We had a lot of unforced errors. Even so, it was a close one, ending in a 25-23 Frostproof win. But as Wells knows, all too well, a team with two w ins by double digits should not be forced to go five sets. H er confidence was soo restored, however. The fifth set was amazing, she said. We regained o ur focus and never backed down after that. R esulting in a 15-7 clincher that moves the Dragons overall record to 11-2 on the regular season and 7-1 in District 10-4A play. And though they split the season series with DeSot o, also 7-1 in district, the fact that the Bulldogs swept in their win and the Dragons went to five in theirs gives DeSoto the tie-breaker for the top seed in the upcoming district tournament.Lady Streaks best Braves, Dig PinkComing off a frustrating s econd loss of the season at Winter Haven Tuesday night, and with a busy week continuing, Sebring took care of business Thursday night, topping Lake Gibson in four sets to close out their regular season district schedule. The win moves the Lady Streaks to a 4-2 record in District 9-6Aplay, with two wins each against Kathleen and the Lady Braves, and the two losses to the Blue Devils. The regular season overall record is now 11-3, with the only other blemish to Lake Placid on Sept. 19. But Sebring picked up another win Friday, traveling to the Orlando Sports Center for the two-day Dig Pink tournament.

Jason Dequenne was sitting down for Thanksgiving dinner with his wife and son in Stafford, Va., when he got the stunning news. His friend and fellow Marine, Sgt. Jason Smith, had been killed in Afghanistan. “I remember collapsing into the chair I was standing closest to,” Capt. Dequenne told the Unknown Soldiers. “You’re just in disbelief.” As excruciating pain sunk in, hundreds of memories raced through Dequenne’s mind, with one in particular sticking out. “I remember him asking me if EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) was the right thing to do,” the Marine recounted. “I didn’t plan the years after he joined EOD, but you can’t help but second guess.” Dequenne knows his friend’s death, which occurred half a world away on Nov. 19, 2010, wasn’t the fault of anyone other than terrorists who plant bombs to murder our troops and innocent civilians. “He went off and did something he was very proud of,” Dequenne said. “He saved lives.” In the weeks that followed, Dequenne, the grandson of a heroic Marine who survived the historic World War II battle of Iwo Jima, scanned news outlets for stories about his fallen friend. In addition to reading about other troops making the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan, Dequenne also hoped to read more about Iraq, where he once served. The results were disappointing. “As an EOD guy, (Sgt. Smith) saved so many lives, and as I looked in the media, I saw almost nothing about it,” Dequenne said. “The real tragedy is for (service members) to pass and to have nobody know who they are or what they did.” Like the day he started basic training 16 years ago, Dequenne, who became a Marine Corps officer in 2005 and was promoted to captain two years ago, resolved to hit the ground running and never leave a Marine behind. Starting Oct. 15 at the Marine Corps’Philadelphia birthplace, Dequenne will run 236 miles to raise money for the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation, which gives higher education scholarships to children of the fallen. “I can’t think of a charity that better makes sure that these kids have the best chance to be successful,” the Marine said. “They’ve (lost) a mom or dad, but at least they’ll have an education.” While the 236 miles signify the upcoming 236th birthday of the Marine Corps, Dequenne wants to go an even greater distance. For each mile of his run, which will culminate Oct. 30 at the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, Dequenne will honor a different Marine or Navy Corpsman who made the ultimate sacrifice. He calls it “running a mile in their shoes.” “For some of these folks, it’s been years since someone outside of their local communities where they grew up showed interest,” he said. “What I hope to do is let the families of these fallen Marines and Corpsmen know that their lost loved one’s sacrifice hasn’t been forgotten.” While training for the long run has been exceptionally intense, filling most of the Marine’s personal time, the hardest part may have been asking for a father’s permission to honor his daughter. Dequenne described his phone call with Michael McClung, a retired Marine who lost his 34-year-old daughter, Maj. Megan McClung, in Iraq on Dec. 6, 2006. “It’s like when you’re nervous, as a teenager, about asking a girl to dance,” Dequenne said, adding that Megan’s dad was kind and supportive. “Like any good father, he’s very protective of her.” Major McClung’s enduring mantra — “be bold, be brief, be gone” — has inspired thousands around the world, including this writer. What moves me equally is the service and dedication of Capt. Dequenne, who is ensuring that his fallen brothers and sisters in arms are always remembered. “I would say it has probably been the most enriching experience of my entire life,” the 38-year-old Marine said. Early in his 236-mile run, Capt. Jason Dequenne will spend a mile in the shoes of Sgt. Jason Smith. He’ll remember the good times, as well as Thanksgiving, when he learned of his 28-year-old friend’s passing. But first and foremost, he’ll remember one enduring truth about a warrior and his legacy. “Once a Marine, always a Marine,” he said. Following in their shoes

Phone 452-0088.PLACESTOWORSHIP Special to the News-SunAVON PARK —Dr. Stacy Barber, archaeologist and assistant professor at the University of Central Florida, will speak on “Mexico’s Forgotten Coast: Ancient Canoe Trade in the Mar del Sur,” during the next meeting of the Kissimmee Valley Archaeological Conservancy at 7 p.m. on Thursday at the SFCC Highlands Campus, Building G, Room 101. The ancient peoples of Mexico placed great value on the sea and its resources, even those who lived deep in the interior highland valleys. Yet despite extensive evidence for canoe-based trade around Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, similar maritime movements along the Pacific coast of Mexico and nearby Guatemala are poorly understood. Using early historic records, computer modeling, and archaeological evidence, Dr. Barber considers the possibilities for and impediments to exchange along the coast of Mexico’s ancient Mar del Sur. Dr. Barber is a Mesoamerican archaeologist specializing in the ancient civilizations of Oaxaca, Mexico. She has been conducting archaeological research for the past ten years in the lower Rio Verde valley on Oaxacas western Pacific coast. Her areas of interest include the origins of ancient states, ancient exchange systems, and human-environment interactions in coastal settings. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Geographic Society. The public is invited to attend at no cost. Call Anne Reynolds at 465-3637.

When the pilgrims came to the new land, they took many of the ideas from the natives and the pumpkin became a vital part of their lives as well. Pumpkins were important to the pilgrims and Native Americans for many reasons and even in today’s times, we still rely on the huge orange fruit. Even before the early days of settlers and Native Americans, pumpkins were around. Seeds from the pumpkin family have been found in Mexico dating back to 7,000 to 5,500 B.C. Pumpkins have been referred to in various ways for many centuries. The name pumpkin originated from the Greek word Pepn, which means large melon. From that, the word was changed again by the French, English and finally the Americans until it became pumpkin. But Native Americans get the credit for practicing an early form of sustainable agriculture. They used all of the pumpkin. They cooked the sweet flesh by roasting, baking, parching, boiling and drying it. They even ate the seeds as well as used them for medicinal purposes. They added pumpkin blossoms to stew and stored dried pumpkin for the winter so it could be ground into flour. Wasting nothing, they dried the shells and used them as containers. They also pounded the dried pumpkin flesh into strips and wove it into mats. The pilgrims took a page from their book and the orange flesh got them through many harsh winters. In addition, they used the shells for a template for haircuts, giving the New Englanders the nickname, “pumpkinheads.”They even made pumpkin beer. But perhaps the most interesting use of the pumpkin was their version of pumpkin pie. Today, we may picture a pilgrim woman, dressed in her black and white garb, carrying out a beautiful pumpkin pie complete with crust and topping. The reality is that the first pumpkin pie didn’t even look like a pie!It was a blackened pumpkin shell removed from a fire. The first pumpkin pie was a pumpkin with the top cut off, seeds scooped out and filled with cream, honey, eggs and spices. Once the pumpkin top was replaced, the fruit was carefully buried in hot ashes of a cooking fire. Once it was done, the pumpkin was lifted out of the ash and the mixture was scooped out for a custard type of desert. Today, pumpkins are grown all around the world. The only continent that doesn’t grow them is Antarctica. The biggest international producers of the fruit are the United States, Mexico, India and China. Besides pumpkin pie, Americans may be most familiar with the fruit for their Halloween jack-o-lantern. The tradition came from Ireland and Scotland. The earliest jack-o-lanterns were carved from turnips and potatoes and carried in Celtic celebrations. Lumps of coal were lit on fire and placed inside the hollowed out vegetables. When settlers arrived in America, they found that the pumpkin was a much better choice because of its size and shape. Thus the beginning of the jack-o-lantern in America began. This year, when you pick out your pumpkin for Halloween, remember the history of the large orange fruit. It is interesting to note that if not for the pumpkin, our history might be very different indeed.Pumpkin trivia— Pumpkins were once recommended for removing freckles and curing snake bites. — The largest pumpkin ever grown weighed 1,140 pounds. — Pumpkins are 90 percent water. — Eighty percent of the pumpkin supply in the U.S. is available in October. Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department (www.highlandsswcd.org). Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not nexessarily those of the NewsSun. Plenty of reasons to appreciate your pumpkin this Halloween News From The Watershed Corine Burgess Courtesy photo The early settlers learned about the many uses of the pumpkin from the Native Americans. Pumpkins are still a very important staple in todays world.

DearAbby: My mother’s family has never been closeknit, but what they did to her was despicable. My grandmother died recently, and not one person in the family called Mom to notify her. We saw it in our local paper. No funeral details were mentioned, so we called the mortuary repeatedly only to be told arrangements were “still pending.” Mother tried to contact her sister, but got no response. She called her brother four times. He told her the same thing — the arrangements were pending. Two days later, Mom heard from another relative that her mother had been buried in a private ceremony with only immediate family. Mother called her brother again, and was told it wasn’t true — the arrangements were still pending. The next day, Mom and I went to the cemetery to see if the rumor was true. Imagine our sadness when we found my grandmother’s grave. Mom was heartbroken that she wasn’t able to pay her respects to her own mother. We went to my uncle to break the news to him, thinking he didn’t know, and were shocked when he admitted he had known all along about the arrangements, but that Mother’s older sister had instructed him to share no information with Mother. He said his “hands were tied” because she made him promise not to divulge any details to us. Abby, PLEASE tell your readers that no matter how dysfunctional family ties may be, everyone should be able to pay last respects to their own parent. And funeral homes should have the decency to tell callers that funeral arrangements are private rather than lying about it. — Brenda in Texas DearBrenda: My deepest sympathy to you and your mother for your loss. Regardless of what caused the falling out with her siblings, their behavior was brutal and allowed her no closure. They have made it plain that she should keep her distance, and for her own sake I hope she will. It is obvious who “runs” that family, and further contact will cause your mother only more pain and frustration. Sometimes people have to build their own family, and that’s what I recommend you do. DearAbby: At 78, my dad has given up on life. After a bout with cancer in his 50s, he has gone downhill with severe depression, sleep apnea, heart issues, etc. Dad sleeps about 20 hours a day, and refuses to do anything to improve his quality of life. My mom is a vibrant woman of 70 who enjoys excellent health. She has many years ahead of her, but her quality of life has diminished because of my father. We encourage her to find some kind of life outside the home through friends, women’s groups, church groups, etc., but she’s reluctant to leave Dad. She’s a youthful person who is, basically, living with a corpse. I love my father, but his refusal to do anything to make his life better (treat his sleep apnea, get some exercise, take his meds properly) makes me realize he won’t change. I hate that two lives are being destroyed because of Dad’s choices. How can I make Mom see her life could be better? — Toubled Son in Illinois DearTroubled Son: You and your mom should schedule an appointment with your father’s physician to discuss everything you have disclosed to me. His doctor needs to know he sleeps 20 hours a day and isn’t compliant in taking his meds. And you need to find out whether your father’s condition IS improvable at this point, because you may be judging him too harshly. While your mother’s life might improve if she got out more, it’s possible that if she took the time away from your dad she would feel too guilty to get the most out of it. If there are family members or friends who would stay with him while she went out, she might be more receptive. Remember, you can always suggest, but don’t push.

Sometimes I’m frustrated and would like to tell the author what I think a certain character should be saying or doing at a distinct juncture of the story. When my thoughts align perfectly with the author’s, I feel satisfied that I figured out the dilemma. If I’m left perplexed and wondering about the outcome, I must wait patiently for the sequel to resolve the issues in the story. Life-like characters may invade our thoughts and even our prayers (oops!) and in this we see the giftedness of the author to draw us in. Readers are often encouraged to write, e-mail or visit websites so there can be a personal connection between author and reader. But, there is only one book where the Author is always present when one reads it.That book is the Bible. The Bible is God’s living word to us.When I come to the Bible desirous of being enlightened, the Holy Spirit of God helps meet me there.That is why a verse of Scripture that might have ministered to me years ago can do so again in a different way today. When we come to God’s word with a heart like the Psalmist who says in Psalm 119:18, NKJV, “Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law,” we can be sure he will respond.We will not only see with our physical eyes; but, we will see with spiritual eyes of discernment and understanding. In verse 105 we learn that God’s word is “a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”Notice he doesn’t supply a flash light to illuminate the entire way; just enough to light the next step as we put our hand in his and walk by faith. In other places of Scripture, God’s word is described as sweeter than honey and sharper than a two-edged sword.Then in 2 Timothy 3:16 we are assured, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” Jesus Christ will meet you within the pages of the Bible because he desires a personal relationship with each one of us. So read the Bible.Meeting and speaking with Author will change your life.Selah. Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.

LIVING 14B PA GE News-Sun Sunday, October 14, 2011 Basic beard instructionsDownload templates for our beard shapes from FamilyFun.com/magazine. Mark and cut a shape out of fun fur (always cut from the non-furry side). Cut a matching shape out of felt, trimming it so that its slightly smaller. Adhere this felt backing to the fun fur with glue (we used Beacons Kids Choice). Have your child put on a headband, then hold the beard to his face to see where the beards edges should be attached to the band, as shown. Secure the edges to the band with tacky glue, clamping it in place with binder clips until the glue dries (or use hot glue, an adults job). Unicorn H orn:See the basic horns instructions. Create one long horn from foil and cover it with masking tape. Cut a 21/2by 31/2inch tongue shape out of cardboard. Tape the horn to the rounded end of the shape and tape the straight end to the headband (A Paint the horn and cardboard and let it dry before adding glue and glitter. For a forelock, cut two 4inch squares of felt into a fringe. Stack them and attach them to the headband and the cardboard with colored duct tape. Cut two small ear shapes from felt. Make a crease in their flat ends and attach them to the headband with more duct tape. Mane:Cut two 4-inchwide strips of felt long enough to go from the top of the sweatshirt hood to the bottom of the back. Fringe both pieces, leaving about 3/4inch of one edge uncut. Adhere the two mane pieces to the sweatshirt with colored duct tape (BF orget about the candy. We think the best part of Halloween is that everyone gets to play dress-up for a day. Here were making it easier than ever, with five costumes that are each built upon a main, showstopping piece: a wig, a beard or horns. Finish the disguise with some old clothing and a simple prop, and youll have a look wort hy of any parade. And after the big night, dont be surprised if those beards, horns a nd wigs become dress-up box favorites. Deborah Way/Disney FamilyFun magazine Wizard Beard:Make a long beard using our template and the instructions above. Hat: Shape a large piece of gray felt into a cone around your childs head. Trim the excess fabric and seal the seam with hot glue (an adults job), then trim the bottom edge to make it even. Make a brim for the hat by cutting a felt circle thats about 3 inches larger than the cones opening. Mark and cut out an interior circle thats 1/2inch bigger in diameter than the cones bottom. Cut through the side of this ring shape. Glue the brim to the outside of the cone, adjusting the fit using the break in the ring. Embellish the hat with an extra star and some of the cord you used for the robes belt. B asic wig instructionsFirst, make two caps, one to keep y our childs hair hidden and the other for the wig. For each, turn a pair of queen-size control top panty hosei nside out. Tightly double-knot a short length of yarn about 5 inches below t he waist; wrap the yarn ends around and double-knot it a second time (A Trim off the legs and turn the hose right side out. Put one cap aside. On the other, use a marker to make a line between the seams (BThis line willb ecome the wigs center part. Decide how long you want the w igs hair to be, then find an object, such as a box, a baking sheet or a t abletop with a circumference twice t hat of the chosen hair length. (So use a box with a circumference of 50 inches for a wig with 25-inch-long hair.) Wind bulky or curly yarn around the object 9 to 11 times; wind regular yarn 16 to 18 times. Double-knot a piece of yarn around the bundle, then cut the yarn loops at the opposite point from the tie (C yarn for each wig. Thread a tapestry needle with an 1 8-inch length of your wigs yarn. (Our drawing uses orange yarn for contrast.) Insert the needle into the caps center line about 1/4inch up from the bottom e dge. Bring the needle back up through the capa bout 1/2inch away, and pull half of the length of yarn through. Remove the needle. Tie the yarn ends to the cap in a double knot a nd let the ends blend in with the rest of the bundle. Follow this binding procedure a second time to add a bundle about 1/8i nch up from the first. Continue to add bundles along the center line, leaving about 1/4i nch between them so that the cap can stretch (D When all the bundles are attached to the cap, have your child try it on. Spread out the yarn to cover the cap completely. If you see any large gaps, add a thin bundle of yarn.To wear the wig:I f your child has long hair, put it into a ponytail or a flattened bun. Put on the hairless wig cap and tuck any stray hairs underneath it. Then put on the wig.D orothyWig:See the basic wig instruct ions, left. Use one skein of mediumweight yarn (ours is Caron Simply Soft) to make a wig with hair about2 5 inches long. Divide the hair along the center part and make loose, low, s ide braids, tying the ends with a piece of yarn, then with blue ribbon.
