C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK The city is facing a lawsuit alleging age discrimination and creating a hostile work environment. City Manager Julian Deleon is also named as a defendant. Betty Joy Estredge filed papers at the 10th Judicial Circuit Court late Thursday afternoon, asking for damages greater than $15,000, exclusive of costs, interests and attorneys fees. She is demanding a trial by jury. According to the filing papers, at the time Estredge, who was over 60 years old in 2009, had been employed by the city for about 10 years. Her job title was sign technician/secretary. She worked in the public works department, of which Deleon was department head. At the time Estredge worked indoors making signs and maintaining the sign making machinery, as well as having clerical duties such as record keeping, mail distribution, reports and working the reception desk. Estredge alleges that without consulting the union, or noticing Estredge herself, her job description was changed and additional light field cleaning and facilities maintenance added. Estredge said Deleon required her, with another female employee, to Sunday, November 6, 2011 www.newssun.com Volume 92/Number 131 | 75 cents Man dies in accidentPAGE2AEngvall entertainsPAGE2ATips for smarter drivingPAGE14BNEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 www.newssun.com HighLow 82 61Complete Forecast PAGE 14A Mostly sunny and breezy Forecast Question: Has the recent news of sexual harassment allegations changed your opinion of Herman Cain?

And dumplings. Maybe biscuits and gravy. For 25 years, what began as the Sandwich Depot and is now just called The Depot in Avon Park has been serving up good home cooking and a family atmosphere. Its been fun. We have made a lot of friends and we are glad that we have been in business this long, said John Hill. Hill, co-owner with his partner John Devany, who were roommates in culinary school, took over the struggling sandwich shop in October of 1986. The small shop was located in single store front at 21 W. Main St. It has become an icon of small-town life in the city known for its charm.

Perez is the pastor of the Inglesia de Dios Pentecostal, or the Pentecostal Church of God, at 511 Jackson St. in South Lake Wales. Along with his wife Diana and members of his church, Perez has helped to organize a free concert on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the South Florida Performing Arts Theater in Avon Park. The performer is Puerto Rico born Hctor Delgado, a well-known rapper and evangelist who turned from street rap to Christian rap in 2008. Delgado, a former reggaeton style artist and producer, was known at the height of his old career by the artistic names Hctor El Father and Tito El Bambino. He used to be known as The Father, but he converted to giving a Christian message. He is very talented, and all the kids know of him, Diana Perez said. The youth need to hear positive messages, and many deserve a second chance. We are hoping this concert will bring the message of both, she added. Eduardo Giraud and his wife Carmen donated their time and money to help the event happen, and are genuinely concerned about the state of youth in Highlands County. We are trying to reach all the youth. This is about Rapper brings opportunity See RAPPER, page 8A Did you remember the time change?

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Friday marked a special occasion fo r members of the Lake Placid community. Lake Placid Mayor John Holbrook signed a proclamation declaring the town of Lake Placid the siste r city of Lake Placid (NY). Holbrook, members of the Lake Placid Town Council, Chamber of Commerce, and Historical Society gathered in the council chambers Friday morning where Town Clerk Arlene Tuck presented the proclamation to the mayor. President of Lake Placids Mural Society and Tour Lake Placid Harriet Porter was one of the first who decided to make an attempt at contacting the city in New York to see if they would be interested in becoming sister cities. We started working on this a few months ago. It was the first official act to contac t New York. We kept in contac t through several emails and phone calls and then we had a conference call discussing the proclamation, Porte r said. After a few months of discussion, Lake Placid, N.Y. agreed to proclaim Lake Placid, Fla. as its only nonOlympic sister city. They (New York) have other sister cities because they held the Olympics there, but we are the only nonOlympic sister city so i t makes us kind of special, Porter said. Lake Placid officials are proud to be a part of such a Mayor signs proclamation, declares LP sister city See MAYORS, page 8A By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The 26th running of the CCC Festival brought thousands of visitors to Highlands Hammock State Park on Saturday.

Steven Dennis Laliberte, 40, was killed when his 2005 Suzuki hit a deer on Cougar Boulevard just south of Ferrari Drive around 12:47 a.m. in Sebring Estates. The deer crossed the road from the west while Laliberte and his passenger, Marie Danielle Arrocho, 27, also of Sebring, traveled south on Cougar Boulevard. The deer, the report stated, was struck by the Suzuki on its right side. Both Laliberte and Arrocho were thrown from the motorcycle, according to the report from the Florida Highway Patrol, and Laliberte came to rest in the southbound lane facing southwest. Arrocho came to rest in the northbound lane and was facing north. Laliberte was pronounced dead at the scene Arrocho was transported to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition, the report stated. Additionally, according to the report, neither were wearing helmets at the time of the crash. One dead, one critical when motorcycle strikes deer By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK With tux and elegance, those attending the Florida Foundations 17th Annual Gala were treated to clean, family fun by comedian Bill Engvall at the South Florida Community College Theater for the Performing Arts on Thursday. Engvall, who bills himself as a clean, stand-up comedian, which fit perfectly with the Christ-centered fundraiser, was just part of the entertainment in the three-daylong fundraiser that included a formal dinner and silent auction Thursday, a golf tournament Friday and a 5k run on Saturday. The golf tournament was named this year in honor of Sam White, a Foundation board member and former Avon Park Chamber of Commerce president who died in March. Engvall is best known for his work with the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour" and carries the tag-line of Heres Your Sign, which describes common everyday questions asked about obvious situations. Engvall is starring in and executive producing the new half hour sitcom for TBS titled The Bill Engvall Show. The show centers on Bill as the father at the core of a family comedy. The seriesdebut telecast on July 17, 2007 delivered 3.9 million viewers and 2.8 million households, securing a place among ad-supported cables Top 3 sitcom telecasts of all time among households and Top 5 original sitcom telecasts of all time among key adult demos and viewers. According to the program at the show, Engvall also has a platinum-selling CD that held top spot on the Billboard Comedy Chart for 15 weeks, as well as his multiplatinumselling DVD, Heres Your Sign Live. Engvalls latest CD, Aged and Confused, was certified gold and has sold at least a half-a-million copies. Jamie Bateman, the executive director of The Foundation, explained that a portion of this years proceeds goes towards the Heartland Medical Centers Heart and Vascular Center, which opened in March 2009.

C M Y K Who, in other words, wants to be the one to poke a sleeping bear with the news theres a forest fire raging right outside his den. Of course, the timely warning will save the bears life, but the odds are the bear will give the messenger a nasty thwack for waking him up before thinking to thank her if ever he does. All of which is to say the News-Sun does not thrill to be the bearer of the negative quite the opposite in fact. We would much rather report on discovered solutions, effective policies, humane actions, and people who have accomplished exceptional work. Unfortunately, however, bad things do happen people cheat, buildings collapse, and puppies die. We would not be fulfilling our public service responsibilities if all we did was write stories about things going well and you readers would not be fulfilling your responsibilities as citizens if you ignored what is failing. The fact is we have to stay grounded in reality, celebrating when the news is positive, rolling up our sleeves when it isnt. For example, take two make-believe headlines Parents chip in to fund the school chorus and, Chorus cancelled as school district runs out of money. Both stories state facts, but each without the other does not tell the whole story and is of no use. One ignores a problem, the other implies there is no solution. Anewspaper that cares about its community finds a way to present all aspects of a story yes, generous parents have found a stop gap measure to keep their children singing, but it is still true a long-term answer has to be found. Useful coverage of an issue or an event needs to have balance. Readers should expect it, newspapers must produce it. That means pulling no punches, but making sure the facts are presented in accurate context. Unfortunately, we were called out on this just the other day. Ateacher phoned the newsroom disappointed that the coverage of the Oct. 25 incident at Avon Park High School focused only on the 50 participants in a school yard fight, and not on the hundreds of students who not only maintained self-control, but separated combatants and came to the aid of teachers and deans. By reminding us to put things into perspective, he has taught us a lesson we will remember. We hope you remember a lesson in return a local newspaper reflects the community around it: The comings and goings, the decisions, the challenges. We are a messenger, no more and no less. What appears in our pages is not good news or bad news; it is just simply news.

I blame Facebook. Im certain a lot of my readers are on Facebook, that giant social network of a website. Let me be quick to say that in the grand scheme of things I like Facebook well enough. Its a great way to touch base with people from all over the planet, and to even reconnect with old friends you havent seen in a while. In fact, Don has even put a toe into Facebook. He has a page up and everything. Not that he does a whole lot with it, but this is Don were talking about any step towards the 21st century must be counted as a plus. But lets be honest Facebook in some ways is a big time-waster. I am proof of that statement, having wasted quite a bit of time on Facebook today. For one thing, there are the games. I am one of millions of users who succumbed to that innocent looking game, Farmville. For those who have never heard of it, Farmville is a game in which you get to run your own personal farm. You harvest crops, take care of animals, go to your friendsfarms and lend them a hand as well. I know it sounds incredibly boring the way Im describing it. But trust me, it can be fun. The problem with Farmville is that you soon get a feeling of obligation to the game. Crops have to be harvested in a timely fashion or they wither, which means they turn brown and you get no credit for them. No one likes to deal with withered crops, so you have to make time to harvest them. You have to plan when the crops can be harvested, or think about getting up in the middle of the night to save your crops. I dont like any game that much. Yet youll find me, pretty much every day, on Facebook working on my farms. And this is one of a number of games they have available on Facebook, all ready and willing to steal your time away from you if youre not careful. The addicting games arent the only issues I have with Facebook. People tend to post interesting links there. Ill be innocently checking out news from my friends, find a link that catches my eye and say, Oh, just for a minute I did that this evening and spent a lot more than a minute reading articles and watching movie trailers. Its all my friends fault she shouldnt have posted that Harry Potter link. It doesnt help Facebook at all that they ignored the saying, If it aint broke, dont fix it, and have been trying to break Facebook lately. The website seems to want a lot more of my computers resources lately and my poor laptop has done its best to keep up with it. Add the fact that theyve changed things that were perfectly fine the way they were and gave users no choice in the matter and you might understand why some Facebook users are mildly cranky. Cranky or not, Facebook is a part of my life, and despite the hassles that sometimes come from using it Ill stick with it. If youre on Facebook and havent friended me yet, just look for me as Laura Helmers Ware. Wecan be buddies! Swap links? Hey, you want to give me a hand on my farm? Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

All items will run on a first-come basis as space permits, although more timely ones could be moved up. We believe your viewpoints are just as important as any community leader or government official, so consider this a personal invitation to get your two cents in. What have you done for us lately? I dont think the average American military veteran has the time or the temperament to spend 51 weeks a year asking such a question, but a reasonable person could hardly blame him if he did. Veterans Day can be like Mothers Day or Fathers Day an occasion to heap praise upon individuals whom we spend the rest of the year ignoring, tolerating or circumventing. Aweeks worth of bumper stickers, newspaper interviews, special discounts and grade school essays soon give way to the daily grind. I dont think our veterans are expecting a Were not worthy! routine from civilians (as in Wayne and Garth kowtowing to Alice Cooper in the Waynes World movie), but there are lots of little ways to show appreciation during the year. Are you glad for the religious freedom we enjoy in this country? Dont take it for granted. Go out and be the most gung ho (insert your religious affiliation or non-affiliation here) you can be! Are you grateful for freedom of speech and freedom of the press? Exercise those rights. Stay informed, and not just by surrounding yourself with yes men radio/TVcommentators, bloggers and columnists. Military service has opened up new horizons for millions of insulated kids over the years, and theres no reason for civilians to box themselves in with dogma. Glad you can vote? Be sure you register and actually show up on election day. (No excuses, such as TVs Edith Bunker trying to defend husband Archies non-voting with the lame I think he had to mail a letter once.) Educate yourself and vote for solid, non-frivolous reasons. Glad the nation as a whole isnt speaking German or Japanese? Try speaking and writing English correctly. Take five minutes to learn flag etiquette before displaying Old Glory. Let the veterans in your family, workplace or neighborhood know that they are always welcome to relate their wartime experiences or NOT, depending on their situation. Dont practice knee-jerk reactions of any political stripe. Dont callously advocate sending service people into harms way just because some foreign bureaucrat ticked you off. But neither should you cost us valuable time by unrealistically insisting that Diplomacy ALWAYS works. Hold your governments feet to the fire when military personnels lives are on the line. Make sure our military has a clear mission, proper equipment and a reasonable exit strategy. Help the veterans in your life with a year-round project of scrapbooking, journaling or connecting with old comrades. Visit a Veterans Administration hospital and see what you can do to uplift the spirits of those who have sacrificed so much for their country. If you see your children or grandchildren (or yourself) getting too wrapped up in desensitizing, violenceglorifying video games, ask a combat veteran to intervene and bring them down to earth. Be wild and crazy and use Arbor Day or the Ides of March as an excuse to donate a veterans-oriented book to the public library. In the coming year, I hope we will be able to break the cycle of feast or famine for attention to veterans. I hope that the nations veterans can say of civilians, All gave some.

Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home Avon Park www.stephensonnelsonfh.com MAX HARRELL Max Alan Harrell of Sebring, Fla. died peacefully in his home on the morning of All Souls Day, 1 Nov 2011, after having shaved, showered, and gotten ship-shape for daily muster, in traditional Navy fashion. He was 86. Born in Shawnee, Okla., on 10 March 1925, Max was raised on a farm, and learned many of the essentials that would serve him throughout his life. When Pearl Harbor was attacked, 16-year-old Max was working with the Civilian Conservation Corps in Death Valley. Shortly after his 17th birthday he enlisted in the Navy, and volunteered for submarine duty. He remained in the Navy, and with the submarine service for 28 years, and as a mustanger, rose through the ranks to lieutenant commander. In 1966, while commanding the submarine rescue vessel Petrel, he was instrumental in devising mechanisms for stabilizing the ship in rough seas, and reducing tension on the lines used to retrieve the lost H-bomb from the floor of the Mediterranean, off the coast of Spain, and was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal. On retiring from the Navy in 1969, Max enrolled in the University of Connecticut, and earned both a bachelors and masters degree in business. In 1975 he joined the staff of Manchester Community College as assistant registrar, and supported the substantial growth that school enjoyed over the next decade. He retired for good in 1985, and moved to Florida, where he joined the Sebring Elks Lodge 1529, and served in various capacities, including auditor.

But much of his leisure time was spent fixing appliances, machinery, and family memberscars, and in devising novel solutions to everyday home and garden problems. It was not unusual to run across items in stores or in catalogs that mirrored things he had crafted long before in his basement workshop. This McGuiver-like skill came initially from his early farm life, but was then well-honed in the submarines.

Several skits and shows took place for a tent full of guests in the center of the festival. Magic shows provided by Weatherbee's Magic & Comedy also gave the guests in the park something to smile about. Attendees from all over Florida including Miami and Punta Gorda filled the festival. Families visiting grandparents in the Highlands County area found the CCC Festival a nice plus to the weekend trip. We were just here for the weekend visiting Nana and she mentioned the festival so we came, said a Miami resident Saturday afternoon. The Lischner family spent several minutes learning interesting facts about snakes, gators and iguanas. The Lishner kids had an even better time petting and touching the reptiles. Steve Wells and wife Fan were busy admiring the antique car and tractor display at the front of the festival Saturday. The Wells enjoyed the event and have been consistent attendees the last several years. We come every year. My wife and I really enjoy it and its been more than four years weve come in a row. We have our grandkids over at the campsite and about six other groups so we are just enjoying the festival and staying the weekend, Wells said. The event drew in 1,600 attendees last year and this year is sure to bring in more numbers. The geocaching Hike and Seek event ran in conjunction with the CCC Festival Saturday bringing in hundreds of extra guests to Highlands Hammock State Park. The CCC Festival kicked off the first day of the Week of the Family and as always provided plenty of fun and entertainment for locals as well as visitors in the area.

Estredge states that the building was infested with rats, both alive and dead, rat nests, animal droppings, dust, dirt and filth, including medical needles and other hazardous waste. It also states that she was not provided with protective gear or equipment, no safety gear, no masks, glasses, gloves or other safety devices when she began to clean and paint the building, even though she had asked for them. Estredge also states she required medication that made it difficult to work in the sun and heat and went to her doctor to change medicines. The suit states Deleon questioned her health condition and continually nitpicked and harassed her about her performance. Estredge alleges that when she approached Maria Sutherland, then interim city manager, and city council member Brenda Gray about the situation, neither intervened. As a result of the hard physical working conditions and harassment, Estredge states in the suit, the stress became overwhelming, her health failed, and she had to take medical leave. She said she has become disabled and continues to suffer mentally and physically. The suit singles out Deleon and his alleged acts of harassment as the reason she continues to need treatment for nightmares, depression and panic disorder. She says she has not been able to work since Deleon mistreated her so badly that she broke down. Deleon told the News-Sun, Mrs. Estredge retired over a year ago. She filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (a federal government agency). The commission looked at, investigated and dismissed her complaint. Therefore I am confident that the city has done nothing wrong. Continued from page 1A Employee files suit against city Amid the hustle of lunch recently, and in between i nterruptions from wellwishers, the partners smiled, laughed and cooked. Since 1986, John and John, as they are affectiona tely called, have gotten up at 3 a.m. to prep for breakfast, doubled the seating and established a successful catering business. In that time, they have seen a lot of changes on Main Street. Weve seen them come and weve seen them go. T here have been a lot small businesses come and go in the downtown, Hill said. But we have met a lot of people and made a lot of friends, he added. The hurricanes of 2004 and the economy have been t he notable impacts to the business over the years. This is probably the t oughest economy we have ever seen. Things were not t his bad even when the hurricanes put us out of business, Devany said.. The hurricanes were tough. Then right after F rancis, we had a fire that hurt business for another f our months, Devany said. But even though Charley, Francis and Jeanne disrupted b usiness in 2004, the culinary duo were able to keep s erving because of the customer base. But the customers came b ack. We have been very fortunate in that. We have a great group of loyal customers, Devany added. Just then, a customer came o ver the table where John and John took a break at the end of the rush to shake their hands. Good as always, the c ustomer remarked with a toothpick clenched between h is lips. See ya next time. According to Hill and D evany, one of the boosts to the business was the renovation of the Mile Long Mall and Main Street. That really attracted people to the downtown. We saw a constant increase in business after that happened. Look out there, it looks great, Devany said about the picturesque bandstand and Memorial Park just outside the window. When you are in the same business for as long as John and John, you cant help but establish a lot of relationships. You also see a lot of kids grow up. One of the neat things now is that we are catering weddings for the kids of parents we did weddings for. A lot of them have become like family, Hill said as another customer came by to shake hands and chat about family. Successes and failures? Well, the peanut butter pie and chicken and dumplings are definitely successes, Hill said. Almost on cue, a customer at the next table was told there was no more peanut butter pie. Well, its peanut butter or nothing, the customer told the waitress as he laid a tip on the table. Hill smiled. See, a success. We can never make enough of that one. Another success has been great employees. There has been very little turnover. We have folks who have worked for us 20-plus years, Hill said. But the two have avoided making enemies by sticking toa simple rule. No politics. We do not discuss politics with customers, Hill laughed. We stay away from religion, too. Those two items will kill you in a small town, Devany remarked with a large smile. And yet another customer came by the table and gave greetings and chatted about how good lunch was. Failures, I cant really think of any. We have tried a lot of things, but we stick to a menu that works, for the most part. Cheeseburgers on Friday, chicken and dumplings on Tuesday. It works, Devany said. How long do I want to do this? Hill asked. Until I can retire. I dont know when that will be. With this economy, I dont think anyone does, he chuckled. I am not sure we are going to retire, Devany said with a grin. This is a lot of fun. I enjoy the conversation with the customers and the business. Why would anyone want to leave that? I do know one thing, Hill said with a belly full of laughter. When I retire, I am going to stay up past 8 oclock.

Young people dont need a bunch of old people telling them what they are doing wrong. They need someone they can relate to who can help direct them and show them there are opportunities out there with the right message, she added. Youth arent going to church anymore. But they like to listen to music, and they look up to someone like Hector, who was a very popular rapper in Puerto Rico, she explained. We hope that this will spread the message that God is for everyone and that he creates opportunity. We are giving them something new, Pastor Perez said. We have to remember that the youth are our future and that the church needs to be involved in the community. Together, those things can give them the tools to make decisions, he said. Delgado was not available for comment on Friday; he was delivering a message to youth in Ecuador when the Girauds called for an interview. Delgados album in 2005, titled Los Anormales, broke all record sales in Puerto Rico with 130,000 copies sold in just two days. The concert starts sharply at 6 p.m. and is scheduled to end at 10 p.m., is nondenominational, and free to the public. Delgado will also be attending church on Sunday with the Perez and Giraud families at the church in South Lake Wales. The public is also invited to attend those services, which start at 10:30 a.m. Rapper brings message to Highlands teens Continued from page 1A rich history and feel the proclamation shows the uniqueness and appeal to the town. We were joking about putting a sign up on 27 that says Our sister city Lake Placid, NY3,458 miles northand they would put one that said the same thing going south, Holbrook joked. In actuality, the distance between the two communities is just under 1,500 miles one way but that doesnt make the Lake Placid officials feel any less close to their new sister. Its just a great coinciding event. We are tied by Dewey so its neat to become their sister city, Porter said. Dr. Melvil Dewey (founder of the Dewey Decimal System) renamed the town in 1927 after visiting here. Dewey grew up near Lake Placid, N.Y. and suggested the town in Florida to be changed from Lake Stearns to Lake Placid.

Its tough sticking to your budget any time of year, but the holiday season presents special challenges with so many unexpected expenses and temptations. If you sometimes fall prey to holiday overspending, you might want to look for year-round small spending cuts in other areas of your life that, when added together, can result in big savings. Here are a few suggestions:Personal finances If you have lowdeductible homeowners, renters or auto insurance, ask how much your premiums would drop by raising the deductible to $500 or $1,000 it could be 15 to 30 percent or more. Cancel underutilized phone and cable services, magazine subscriptions, gym memberships and other extras youre not using. Before shopping at chain stores, check with online gift card resellers like Plastic Jungle and CardWoo where you can buy gift cards at a discount. Combine the gift card with a coupon or discount code to save even more. Kick bad habits. Smoking one $6 pack of cigarettes a day costs about $2,200 a year, not to mention additional medical and lost-work costs. In the home By lowering your thermostat 10-15 degrees for eight hours you can reduce your home heating bill by 10 percent or more. For a $400 monthly bill, thats $40 in savings. Insulate your water heater and outgoing pipes to reduce heat loss and save 4 to 9 percent in water-heating costs. Also, try lowering the temperature to 120 degrees for additional savings. Beginning January 1, 2012, traditional incandescent light bulbs will begin phasing out (starting with 100 watt bulbs) in favor of more efficient models that use 25 to 80 percent less energy. By upgrading 15 bulbs, you could save about $50 a year on utilities.In the car Aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration and braking) wastes gas and can lower gas mileage by 33 percent on the highway. By driving sensibly, you could save about $1.20 for each $3.65 gallon of gas. Fuel economy drops rapidly at higher speeds. For each 5 mph you exceed 60 mph, its like paying an additional $0.29 per gallon of gas. Avoid keeping unnecessary heavy items in your car each extra 100 pounds reduces your mpg by up to 2 percent. Use websites like GasBuddy.com (which has free smartphone apps) and GasPriceWatch.com, where motorists share up-to-theminute tips on where to find low-priced fuel.Health care tips Consider generic vs. brand-name drugs; copayments are usually much lower. Medtipster.com lets you search for generics by cost, by local zip code. Ask whether your insurance offers quantity discounts for mail-order prescriptions. Often, the copayment for a 60or 90-day supply is the same as a 30day supply at a regular pharmacy. Ask your doctor about pill-splitting. Many drugs come in double-dosage tablets that cost the same as a lower dosage. (Caution: Some pills should never be split, so always ask your doctor or pharmacist first.) For more cost-saving ideas, check out AARPs Save Money on Everything site (www.aarp.org/money/budgeting-saving), www.americasaves.org, and Practical Money Skills for Life (www.practicalmoneyskills.c om), a free personal financial management program run by Visa Inc. that offers savings and budgeting tools, including a Holiday Budgeting Center. By trimming a few dollars here and there youre suddenly saving hundreds or thousands of dollars a year enough to tide you through the holidays and start a vacation fund for next summer.

Freddie Mac said Thursday that it lost $6 billion, or $1.86 per share, in the July-September quarter. That compares with a loss of $4.1 billion, or $1.25 a share, in the same quarter of 2010. This quarters $6 billion request from taxpayers is the largest since April 2010. Freddies losses are increasing mainly for two reasons: Many homeowners are paying less interest because they are able to refinance at lower mortgage rates. And failing and bankrupt mortgage insurers are not paying out as much money when homeowners default. Freddie Mac asks for $6B in aid NEWS-SUN 385-6155

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING They were playing catch-up all night long, the Red Devils of Lakeland-Kathleen. From arriving just before the scheduled start time of 7 p.m., to the 17-0 deficit they were looking up at by halftime. And in the end, despite a frenzied second-half rally, the Devils never would quite catch the host Blue Streaks, who notched their first district win in their final chance, 2414. Alot of people said wed be at the bottom, that we couldnt get a win in this district, Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott said. We should have had Bartow last week, but we got this one and we wont be at the bottom. I dont know how theyll sort it out, with a few teams having one win. But were not at the bottom. Perhaps it was the late arrival and hurried pre-game warm-ups. Or maybe it was the icy winds that were whipping across the fields. Likely, it was the hard-hitting Blue Streak defense that got things started well when, on Kathleens second play from scrimmage, a fumble was forced and recovered by Sebring at the Devil 24. But the Streak offense wasnt quite clicking yet, as a chop-block penalty negated a Damion Thompson 12-yard Streaks warm up for first district win Avon Park, Sebring earn wins in cold conditions SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, November 6, 2011 Lady Eagles off to compete in Cheer Courtesy photo Cheerleading squads for the Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC) will be participating for the first time as the newest association in the Police Athletic League (PAL) Cheer-Off Competition this weekend.Squads will be participating in the Flag, Mighty Mite, Pee Wee and Varsity division of the completion that is being held on Sunday, Nov. 6, at the Auburndale High School beginning at 3:30 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children.

Sebring24Kathleen14 See SEBRING, Page 4B By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK The Avon Park Red Devils took an undermanned and winless Gateway Charter to task on Friday night when they shut them out 43-0 at Joe Franza Stadium. We had a good time tonight. It was definitely a good victory for us. It was a good win, said Avon Park head coach Andy Bonjokian. The Devils showed they could roll out offensively in the first three minutes of the game when Jarvial Hart sprinted 23 yards for a TD that was called back because of a holding penalty. Hart dove across the last three of a solid 40-yard run the very next play for the touch, but drew a hail of yellow for showboating. From there on in, it was clear that the Devils dominated the Griffins, rushing for 282 total yards and throwing for 51. Yet there were still a load of mental mistakes in the 75 yards worth of penalties Avon Park racked up. Additionally, two Devil fumbles offered two opportunities for Gateway to get on the board, but the Griffins were a bit underorganized to take advantage. Defensively, the Devils shutdown the Griffin running and passing games, allowing just two first downs, 16 carries for -13 yards and just five yards passing. The clock went non-stop early in the third and the Red Devil bench got a chance to get some gridiron time. Adisastrous first drive in the third did result in a touch when Ryan Dick floated it for 26 yards to Charles Louis, but flags and confusion kept the Devils from scoring off a Gateway pick and turnover before the quarter ended Avon Park would only pick up 10 points in the second half, three of which game from an impressive 27-yard field goal in the fourth by Garrett Taylor. With the easy win to end a short week, the Devil coaching staff was making plans for their next and final game of the season, hoping for a 5-5 season with a win over county rival Sebring. But even against an overmatched opponent, glaring errors and gaffs were seen and needed to be cleaned up with focus something this annual backyard brouha never lacks. Now our focus is all blue, Bonjokian said in the post-game interview. Its going to come down to who wants it more next Friday. It would be a nice cap for the season. We have 48 minutes of football left, and we have to tweak it some. Devils grill Griffins Avon Park43Gateway0 News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE The Avon Park defense left little room to run for the Griffins, holding them to negative rushing yards in Fridays win. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comBoth Sebring cross country squads advanced to regional competition, as did the Lake Placid boys team during Thursdays District action at Tenoroc High School. Though in two different classifications, the Class 3Aand 2Ameets were both at the Lakeland area high school, separated by an hour start time. Off first was the 2A meet, with the Lady Dragons and Red Devils taking on the field. And though Lake Placid had just two runners and couldnt compete for a team advancement, one of them, Alexandra Coyne raced to a third-place finish and moved to regionals individually, while Lexi Siegle was out of the running but finished a solid 22nd. Avon Parks Mariam Olupitan finished a respectable 21st and Erica Rodriguez was two spots behind. with Jordan Edwards finishing 25th. On the eight-team boys side of the meet, the top four team finishes would qualify for regionals and a close race it was. Lake Placids Dalton Shelton won the meet overall, finishing in a torrid 17:22.96, more than 30 seconds ahead of his nearest competitor, Gulfs Nick Buliga. Shelton was support ed by the eighth-place finish of Bryan Reyes, the 21st of Benny Aguilar, Evan Holdens 35th and Ju an Maldonados 42nd. This was just a good enough total of finishes to give the Dragons the fourth-place team score to advance. This was, unfortunately for Avon Park, five points ahead of their 112. Even more unfortunate for the Devils was the aggravated hamstring injury that number-two runner Thierry Alexander suffered during the race. With him out of the running, Avon Park got strong performances with Dexter Greniers 7th and David Garcias 22nd. Eduardo Magana, Luke Trenchfield, Darlin Romeo and Fabian Arreguin all ran hard for the Devils, but in the end, it just wasnt enough to overcome Lake Placid. Grenier, though, did move himself along indiCross Country moving on See CC, Page 3B Special to the News-SunSEBRING Highlands County school students marched Friday morning into the Highlands County AgriConvention Center to participate in the countywide Special STARS Track & Field competition.

All those that qualified now move on to the Region 2-2Ameet at Nature Coast High School in Brooksville Saturday, Nov. 12 at 8 a.m. An hour after the 2Adistrict meet was done, Sebring took on the field of District 7-3Arunners toeing the starting line and were soon off. Taylor Tubbs held off rival Jessica Ortiz of Lake Region to take the girls win in 21:09.80, with Hannah Schroeder lending ample support with a third-place finish in 21:24.76. Ashley White and Emily Smith then came in backto-back, taking 15th and 16th, respectively, before the Lady Streaks scoring was finished by Laura Eshelmans time of 26:09.61. Lake Region took the team title, with a 34-poiint total, with George Jenkins (55) and Sebring (60) going neck-and-neck in second and third, respectively. By finishing top-three in the six-team field, the Lady Streaks will move to the Region 2-3Ameet at Lecanto Saturday at 9:30 a.m. The Sebring boys, with a field of 10 teams could have settled for a fourthplace finish to advance, but saw no point in settling for anything. The well-grouped times between the Streak runners was a constant theme during the season and paid off well Thursday. Once again, the top five runners timed out within on minute of each other as Evan Wilburns 18:09.78 was followed by Eric Fosters 18:17.93, Wesley Konings 18:39.05, Damian Fosters 18:40.74 and Grew Lawrences 19:07.93. Totaling up their finishes brought a 78-point total, good for second place overall, five points ahead of Winter Haven and 11 ahead of Lake Gibson. For their efforts, the Streaks will join the girls in Lecanto Saturday, with their race scheduled to get underway at 10 a.m. Continued from 1B CC heads to Regionals rope was brought out for Dylan Thomas, who is blind, so he can run along the rope holding onto a PVC pipe that slides along it.

Some runners had assistance with school personnel running along with them while holding their hand. All children participating in the running events went 40 yards. Nine athletes used gait trainers and they went 10 yards. There were approximately 150 students participating from elementary schools, middle schools and high schools in Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring. Some children even came from the Kindergarten Learning Center.

Associated PressAfight over government subsidies to build a new NFL stadium has riveted Minnesotas Capitol in recent weeks, fueled largely by fears that the end of the VikingsMetrodome lease after this season could make them a prospect for Los Angeles or another city seeking an NFLfranchise. Alook at the landscape in other football cities often seen as potential movers: St. Louis: The Ramslease allows them to move after the 2014 season if the Edward Jones Dome is not deemed among the top quarter of all NFLstadiums by various measurements. Its unlikely local officials can meet those requirements, but both parties say theyre willing to work together. The citys convention commission spent $30 million upgrading the facility before the 2010 season, installing new scoreboards and video boards and upgrading club seating. San Diego: The Chargers have tried since 2002 to replace Qualcomm Stadium, even though it was expanded by 10,000 seats at public cost in 1997. After exploring options at the Qualcomm site and in several suburbs, they say theyre down to their last, best option, on the edge of downtown not far from the PadresPetco Park. But no financing plans or site renderings have been released. The Chargers remain a leading candidate to move to L.A. if one of those stadium projects moves forward. They have a clause in their lease with the city that gives them a window between Feb. 1 and April 30 to seek a better deal elsewhere. Oakland, CA: The Raiderslease at the Coliseum runs through the 2013 season and the Raiders would like to be able to have a more modern and lucrative stadium. Mark Davis, running the team after the death of his father, Al, last month, has not talked about his plans for the future. The teams stated preference has been to build a new stadium at the site of the Coliseum, but there has been little movement toward that goal. The Raiders have also talked with the San Francisco 49ers about sharing a stadium. The Niners are trying to build a new stadium in Santa Clara. Jacksonville: The Jaguars were seen as a leading candidate to relocate in 2009, but majority owner Wayne Weaver has said repeatedly he has no plans to move the team. Jacksonville blacked out seven home games in 2009 amid slumping ticket sales, but the small-market franchise avoided blackouts in the 13 home games since. The 76-year-old Weaver has spent the last few years looking for an exit strategy, saying he plans to sell the franchise that cost his investment group $140 million in 1993. Last month, Weaver denied rumors he was negotiating to sell the team to FedEx founder Fred Smith. If Weaver does sell the team, he likely would want assurances it would remain in Jacksonville at least for a short-term duration. Buffalo, N.Y.: The Buffalo Bills arent in danger of relocating so long as Ralph Wilson is alive. The Detroitbased, Hall of Fame owner and team founder maintains he has no intention of selling the team or relocating it. Wilson turned 93 two weeks ago, and has provided no succession plan after his death, other than to have his heirs put the team on the market. That could open the door for a franchise move. Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, who assembled a group of potential buyers, and Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula are considered candidates to buy the team and keep it in Buffalo.

C M Y K run, and this initial drive stalling at the 34. With the wind at his back, however, Scott took a chance on the powerful leg of Donovan White and went for the field goal. The kick was on line the whole way, the only question remaining was if it would cover the full 52 yards which it just did for the early 3-0 lead. The next drive for each team went nowhere, when Sebring decided to switch things up and brought in sophomore quarterback Brandon Ferretti, moving incumbent Davaris Faulk to halfback. (Ferretti) started all season at junior varsity to get the experience, Scott said. Davaris might be our best running back, so having him and Damion both in the backfield gives us another weapon. Each of the new backfield members bulled ahead for three-yard runs to start the next series, and then it was a little razzle-dazzle that opened things up. Ferretti took the snap and sent a sideways screen to Faulk. With the defense reacting to Faulk in the open field, it was then caught by surprise as Faulk planted and threw to a wide-open Ladante Harris for a 54-yard touchdown and 10-0 lead with 3:59 left in the first quarter. The lead would hold as the teams battled each other and the elements into the second quarter, with the Streaks soon dodging a bullet. Kathleen quarterback Atreyu Farrior connected with Rovonta Johnson on a long scoring pass, only to have it called back on a holding penalty. ABlue Streak sack on the next play then halted that drive and kept the 10-point lead intact. The lead would grow a series later on a 10-play drive with Ferretti connecting twice with Michael Weston for some yardage and Faulk and Thompson helping move the chains on the ground. On second down at the Kathleen 16, Ferretti then dropped back and lofted one toward the left-front corner of the end zone where birthday boy Aaron Hankerson hauled it in for the 17-0 halftime lead. But the tide would begin to turn as midway through the third, a Sebring fumble near midfield lead to a 53yard touchdown run by James McClinton that would cut the lead to 17-7 at the 5:55 mark. The Streaks next drive would stall and the Devils were back at it, driving from their own 25 toward the center of the field. Farrior then fired a laser deep down the right side for a Javon Harrison touchdown to make it 17-14. Sebrings first two plays of the ensuing drive went for -9 yards to put them at their own 11 as the third quarter came to a close. But the fourth quarter found new life for the Streaks and the roll of momentum Kathleen was on was about to turn. Harris, a lightning-quick freshman got past his man down the left sideline and hauled in a Ferretti pass darting, veering and dashing for a 77-yard play that brought it to the Devil 12. Consecutive Faulk carries took it to the one before Ferretti finished it with a sneak at the 8:54 mark for a 24-14 lead. Kathleen would have three more chances to get back on the board, but the Streaks defense, while bending at times, would not break. The first of these Devil series couldnt get past its own 40, though the secon d series saw Farrior hit Kerwin Harrison for a 53yard gain to the Sebring 37. But a holding call and then a Weston sack pushed Kathleen back and soon ended that drive. The final drive would again see the Devils push it into Blue Streak territory, but with the two-score margin and the clock winding down, it was of little matter at this point and clock soon read zeros for the Sebring win. Even with some of the mental mistakes, we came out and played like the team we knew we had, Scott said afterward. We came in with a good game plan and the kids executed. They have the weapons and had a couple big plays on us, he continued. But our defense came up big and all phases of our game did well. The offense, special teams. And we got a look at our future too, with a sophomore quarterback stepping up and a freshman (Harris) coming up with two big plays. Standing up in their brutal district with a win, the Streaks (1-3, 3-6) now focus on their season finale, the annual cross-county clash with Avon Park. We told the kids, no letdown after this, Scott said. This is the big one next week. The biggest one.

The exhibition will be on display through Dec. 2. Carroll is the only female of the Highwaymen, a group of 27 AfricanAmerican, self-taught from the Lincoln Park area of Fort Pierce. They began to sell their artwork from the trunks of their cars in the 1950s. The majority of the painting portrayed the serene and untouched Florida landscape of their time. In the last decade, their paintings have become highly coveted, and in 2004 the original Florida Highwaymen were inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame. The exhibition is co-sponsored by Norm and Laurie Stephens and HillDuke Ranch. The Highwaymen collection is also part of SFCC MOFACs permanent collection. Selections from the collection are on display throughout the season. SFCC MOFAC will also host a Third Thursday program featuring Mary Ann Carroll at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17.

No matter who you are or where you are on lifes journey, youre welcome here.PLACESTOWORSHIP Usually snakes are thought of as creatures that slither over the earth and scare most folks silly. Snakes certainly have a bad reputation and many people think that a snake is a snake. The reality is that these creatures are just part of the food chain in their own battle for survival. They do serve some very important purposes. Each species of snake is unique and has its own characteristics. Despite the terror these sinewy creatures ensue, the majority of snakes are non-venomous. The Florida pine snake (Pituophis m. mugitus) is no exception. This is a very unusual creature. Pine snakes spend most of their time (about 85 percent) beneath the ground, so you wont see one very often. They are one of the few snakes that can actually construct their own burrow. Their small, pointed head helps them while burrowing in the sand. They are usually active during the day, unless it is very hot, then they may venture out in the evening hours. Pine snakes are rather large creatures with heavy bodies that can reach a length of seven feet. They are constrictors and can appear patterned or non-patterned. Their coloration can be light or dark. Generally, there are dark, squarish, blotches on the sides and back that are lighter toward the tail and darker near the head. The belly is white with dark spots on the sides. Male snakes can be distinguished from females by the appearance of the tail. Males will have a longer tail that does not taper as quickly as the female tail. These beautiful serpents are found in open sandy areas, longleaf pine forests, abandoned fields and even oak forests. Even though they can build their own burrow, they usually inhabit one made by another animal such as a gopher tortoise or pocket gopher. Fire suppression severely threatens this creature. It needs pine woods and open fields to survive. Without fire in many areas, forests tend to get overgrown and the vegetation and roots penetrate the ground. This makes it very difficult for the pine snake, who is a burrower, to survive. The Florida pine snake is oviparous, which means it lays eggs. Mating occurs in late winter or early spring. The females lay anywhere from four to fifteen eggs, which are quite large ranging in size from about two to five inches long. Because of the larger egg size, these snakes dont usually lay as many eggs as some other species of snakes. They lay their eggs from June through August. They are known to build communal nests, with several females laying eggs in one spot. The eggs are some of the largest of any U.S. snake and hatchlings hatch out at over 12 inches in length. When pine snakes are threatened, they will raise the anterior portion of their body and loosely coil up, vibrate their tail and hiss very loudly while preparing to strike. They will strike to ward off whatever is scaring them. Pine snakes enjoy a diet of pocket gophers, rats, small rabbits, squirrels, birds and bird eggs. They are very adept at digging out their prey. Unfortunately, this magnificent creature is decreasing in numbers very rapidly. Many forestry ecologists consider fire exclusion and associated habitat degradation to be a major cause of decline to the species. Another problem is that the humans, in their efforts to control the rodent population, routinely set out poisons to kill the vermin. The rodents eat the poison and then are eaten by the pine snakes and the snake will decline in health and eventually die. In Florida, these animals are listed as Species of Special Concern.

DearAbby: Over the past five years, family gatherings have become increasingly stressful. When they come here, my nieces dont control their young children. Last year after everyone left, I sat down and cried! The mess was horrific, and the damage to my house and yard was dumbfounding. Whats worse is they didnt seem to care. Im dreading this holiday season. I have refused to host anymore and my husband supports my decision. But I feel bad for my parents. They are in their 70s and have always had pride in their family. As our family has branched out, respect has gone completely out the window. Last Thanksgiving we were all on our own. We always invite my parents, but they decline because they dont want to hurt any feelings. We have told them it doesnt matter who theyre with, as long as they celebrate with one of us. I feel like Im being punished for not having the whole family at my house. If it werent for my daughter, we would leave during the holidays to avoid the dissension. How do I deal with my feelings and live with myself? I dont understand the disrespect in the young generation. If you say anything about a childs behavior, you are verbally abused and made an outcast. Giving Up in Texas DearGiving Up: Im glad you wrote, because youre blaming the wrong people. The disrespect you have described is a direct result of children not having been taught how to behave by their ineffective parents, and because there have been no consequences for bad behavior. If you are asked why there will be no celebrations at your house this year, tell the questioner its because you can no longer handle the mess and the damage. Its the truth. And PLEASE dont feel guilty for doing so. As to your parents, please understand that staying home is THEIR choice. They may prefer to celebrate or not by themselves. It has no reflection on you. DearAbby: Im a 43year-old single mom of 16month-old twins and in the midst of a career change. I will be entering the legal profession. Some people have told me that courts and lawyers tend to be conservative and may frown on single mothers. My question is, should I wear a ring on my left hand without saying anything about my marital status? Of course, if asked directly, I will say I am not married. But would simply wearing a ring on the third finger of my left hand (perhaps my boysbirthstone?) be considered disingenuous or dishonest? APut ARing On It? in Nebraska DearPut ARing On It?: Because of advances in the field of reproductive medicine, women both married and single have been able to safely have children at later ages. However, one of the interesting things about motherhood is that no one can tell by looking who is or isnt one. Unless you walk into court and announce that you are a single mother, your personal life should not be a distraction to anyone, whether the person is conservative or liberal. There is no disgrace in being a single parent if you can afford to feed and educate the children you have, so stop worrying youll be labeled with a scarlet letter. P.S. I see no reason to put a ring on it if its a lie. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

It gave me peace of mind that I could accomplish my necessary chore knowing he couldnt come to harm. Children may not always like to be confined. Some detest their car seats and before long whimpering and cries of annoyance fill the car. But, parents know that protection is absolutely necessary. As children get older, the boundaries change; but, a loving parent still takes measures to provide safety even when the children are unaware. It isnt usually until we have children of our own that we recognize how our parents insured our safety and thankfulness fills our hearts. Im so glad I have a heavenly Father who is always looking out for me. Just as a child may not always make right choices and needs his parents oversight; we sometimes do the same as adults. Recently, my husband, Ken, and I visited my parents in Boca Raton. Just prior to that time, we had noticed a brake warning light come on in our car. It was accompanied by the use of the handbrake and since we had good use of our regular brakes, we didnt get it checked out. But, that red light shouldnt have been ignored. We let busyness and time constraints cause us to childishly respond to a protective warning pushing safety limits that in hindsight we now understand. After a day of driving my folks here and there, the car sat in their driveway overnight. When we were all buckled up and ready for our next outing, Ken started the car, put his foot on the brake pedal and went down to the floor. No brakes!Brake fluid had leaked out on the ground. Though we were not anticipating a huge car repair bill, it became secondary to our praises of thanksgiving to our heavenly Father for keeping us safe. We could have had a terrible accident on the Florida Turnpike or any congested road in our travels. Instead, the extreme breakdown happened while the car was empty and sitting still. We felt humbled and blessed all at once recognizing that even when we make foolish decisions, we are never out of his care. And at that moment we stilled ourselves as Psalm 46: 0, NKJV, says to do: Be still and know that I am God and offered our heartfelt thanksgiving and praise to him. Hes watching over us even when we are unaware. Selah. Jan Merop is a News-Sun correspondent. Guest colums are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the NewsSun. Protection, even when unaware Pause And Consider Jan Merop Metro ServicesAries (March 21-April 20) Aries, make memories this week because the person with whom you have been spending considerable time must move on in the next few days. Romance is out of the cards. Taurus (Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus, if you are on a health kick, then this is the time to start incorporating some exercise into your routine. If joining a gym is out, then simply walk with friends. Gemini (May 22-June 21) You have every excuse in the book not to get something done, Gemini. The fact remains that the work will still be there even after much procrastination. Cancer(June 22-July 22) Cancer, momentary lapses in judgement could cause significant problems. Stay focused on the tasks at hand to avoid any conflicts in the future. Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, friendship is the name of the game this week, and you will meet some new people who have the potential to be lifelong buddies. Introduce your existing friends, too. Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Sometimes the answer is right in front of your eyes even if you cant see it right away, Virgo. Look more closely at the possibilities and stop naysaying. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra, you may be reconsidering a recent decision. It j ust may be too late to change things at this point, so you will have to go with the flow. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio, news you receive is less than satisfying. Not one to give up, you will fight to let others know of the injustice that was done and garner some supporters. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Happy times call for a celebration, Sagittarius. Host a party or a get-together with friends and family. Use the time to catch up on old times and relationships. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Capricorn, theres not much to do this week that you cant tackle at another time. This means you can have a few days to simply do whatever it is you desire. Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) It will clear your head and put you in a better place for making hard decisions that seem to crop up out of nowhere. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Its time to put that romance into the next gear, Pisces. You dont want to run the risk of missing out on love.

Bicyclists using a public roadway are considered operators of motor vehicles and are responsible for observing all traffic laws. With few exceptions, there is only one road and it is up to motorists and bicyclists to treat each other with care and respect.

A2011 survey by Consumer Reports found that 62 percent of those surveyed are planning on making their next car much more fuel efficient. But what if a new vehicle isnt in your budget? Take heart there are steps you can take now that can help increase fuel efficiency in what youre driving today. John and Helen Taylor, known as the worlds most fuel efficient couple, hold 89 world records and travel the world stretching the boundaries of fuel efficiency, are here to help others do the same. The Taylors say that by simply following the MAP to Smarter Driving, drivers can become more fuel efficient and do it on a budget. The MAP includes:Its more fuel-efficient to turn on the AC and close the windows. Rolling down your windows can cause an increase in your fuel consumption if you attempt to drive the same speed because of the drag from the wind. Yet, it is important to note that air conditioning can also put added strain on the engine by using fuel to operate. So, whenever possible use the fan instead. John and Helen Taylorset a new fuel efficiency record forthe 48 contiguous states this summerby achieving 64.42 mpg using only Shell gasoline in an unmodified vehi cle.M aintenancePerform smart maintenance before you drive, including:Make sure tires are not overor under-inflated. Proper air pressure cuts down on fuel used while driving. Keeping tires at the correct pressure can improve your gasoline mileage by more than 3 percent.Keep your engine well tuned and repair problems immediately. If your car has failed an emissions test or is noticeably out of tune, repairing the problem could improve your gasoline mileage by 4 percent, on average.A ctionsPractice smart actions and behaviors while youre behind the wheel:Avoid the highs and find the lows. Speeding, rapid acceleration and braking can lower gasoline mileage by five percent at lower speeds and by 33 percent at highway speeds. You should assume that each five mph driven over 60 mph is like paying an additional $0.29 per gallon for gas (savings based on an assumed fuel price of $3.65 per gallon).Also, avoid idling. Idling gets zero miles per gallon. P roductsPurchase smart products at the right price without sacrificing quality:Choose a high-quality gasoline. Lower-quality gasolines can leave harmful carbon deposits or gunk, which can build up on intake valves and fuel injectors. This negatively impacts engine performance, vehicle responsiveness and reduction of fuel flow all potentially leading to reduced fuel economy. Use a loyalty or rewards payment card to save. The Taylors suggest stretching your budget. Shell has teamed up with leading grocers in more than 110 markets across the U.S. where you can earn rewards for using your existing supermarket loyalty card and then redeem the points at participating Shell stations. Another option is to use a Shell payment card that saves you money at more than 14,000 Shell stations across the U.S. Smarter Driving can go a long way to help you stretch your budget while helping protect your vehicle. To find out more about the Shell Smarter Driving Program or to test your Smarter Driving IQ, visit www.Shell.us/smarterdriving, or find Shell at www.facebook.com/shellontheroad. FuelEfficiencyMyths(Some tips sourced from www.fueleconomy.gov.) Gadgets can improve gas mileage. Be wary of any devices that say they can get you better mileage. The EPAhas found that very few provide any fuel economy benefits and some may even damage the engine or increase exhaust emissions. For a list of tested products, visit www.epa.gov.Replacing the engine airfilterimproves fuel efficiency. For older cars with carburetors, this can be true. But todays fuel-injected engines have the fuel-air mixture adjusted by computers. Changing a dirty air filter might improve engine performance, but it wont affect fuel economy.
