Council members voted to accep t the loan refinance after the Public Management Refunding Report, presented by Marissa Wortman, recommended the board members to refinance all three loans into one single refund with PNC Bank. The firm Public Financial Management has been monitoring the Series 2002 loan since 2010 and, afte r gaining a contract with the City o f Sebring at an October council meeting, PFM has been working to presen t the best solution for the loan and the city. In 2002, the city issued a bond for approximately $26 million, o f which $15 million is currently outstanding.

Ajury of his peers found Cook no t guilty of having sex with a 17-year-old under his foster care after just an hou r of deliberations. Cook, now 42, was charged in August of 2007. The original charges were dropped, and then refiled a few days later. The entire time, Cook has maintained his innocence. “All I wanted was my day in court. I knew I would be found innocent if I could just get my day in court,” Cook said on Monday night after the jury returned the not guilty verdict. “It’s like a huge weight off my shoulders.

Martin and other vendors are looking at legal option to change county and municipality laws that keep them from setting up their roadside stands. By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — Entrepreneurs could seek a lawsuit against the county, and the municipalities, claiming local ordinances restrict and are hindering their rights to conduct business. “Well, we are trying to work this out with the county, but right now their ordinances keep us from doing business and creating jobs,” said Jim Martin, president of the Florida Hot Dog Vendors Association. Martin, and several others, discovered that it was illegal for them to vend along county roads or on county property like beaches and boat ramps and the municipalities down right prohibited vendors. “We just want to be able to sell our products and conduct business; right now the county and the cities are keeping us from doing that,” Martin said. Martin sought out a solution by addressing the county commission in August, but has seen no progress on the issue, he said. “We approached them and thought we were making headway. Now we are tabled indefinitely, leaving us in limbo. We can’t wait forever; we have a business to run,” Martin said. Martin added that he felt commissioners and county staff were not making “business and job creation” a high priority and that the Law prohibits setting up stands outside special events See SEBRING, page 7A See VENDORS, page 7A See COOK, page 7A By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK — Three members of the newly formed city charter revision advisory board met with city attorney Gerald Buhr for the first time last week. Doug Easton and Joe Wright, both former city councilors, were absent. The committee’s charge is to shape a new charter or revise the one already in place, then pass it on the city council for its input and approval. From there the document must be approved by public vote through a referendum. Acity charter outlines a city’s responsibilities and how its government will be structured. Buhr explained to the members present — George Hall, Jim Bennett and Lester Roberts — that charters are revised over the years as situations change. It is a natural evolution. Avon Park’s charter has been in place so long, Buhr added, that many portions are antiquated, cumbersome or actually work against the city’s interest. “You have the power,” Work begins on new city charter News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS City governments are regulated by city charters and Avon Park is rewriting its charter. Public comment welcomed. See AP, page 3A

C M Y K The News-Sun would like to remind the readers that the names listed below reflect those who have been charged with a crime, but they are all innocent until proven guilty by a court of law. If anyone listed here is acquitted or has charges dropped, they can bring in proof of such decision or mail a copy to the paper and the News-Sun will be happy to report that information. The News-Sun is at 2227 U.S. 27 South, Sebring, FL 33870. The following people were booked into the Highlands County Jail on Monday, Nov. 21: Francisco Bautista, 58, of Immokalee, was detained for a municipal ordinance violation. Scotty Blake, 40, of Lake Placid, was charged for resisting officer, obstruction without violence; and driving while license suspended, first offense. Jonathan Dannell Gadsden, 28, of Belle Glade, was charged with possession of marijuana, not more than 20 grams; and possession of drug equipment and/or use. Christopher Lee Jenkins, 35, of Sebring, possession of drug equipment and/or use; and possession of controlled substance without prescription. Vera Pamela Kerklin, 22, of Avon Park, was charged for leaving child unattended in vehicle. Charles Robert Kuehl, 53, of Lake Placid, was charged with battery on person 65 years of age or older. Gregory William Louis Rivera, 24, of Lake Placid, was committed for larceny or petit theft, first degree. Billy Ray Spires, 45, of Lorida, was charged with violating Game and Fish rules. Tammy Lee Terenzi, 43, of Sebring, was charged with domestic violence or battery, touch or strike. The following people were booked into the Highlands County Jail on Sunday, Nov. 20: Taiwan Levon Blandin, 22, of Sebring, was charged for resisting officer, obstruction without violence. Levi Anthony Bridge, 18, of Lake Placid, was charged There are two questions I’ve learned the hard way to avoid answering in life. The first is, “Do I look fat in this dress?” The second is, “Honey, how do you like the lasagna (or chicken curry or beef stroganoff)?” Of course, if she looks thin, or the food is delicious, no problem. It’s when the seams bulge or the lasagna is rubbery, the curry tasteless or the stroganoff saltier than the Dead Sea that you wish you’d bought a longer couch. Now, if you think telling the woman you love she’s messed up her family’s favorite third-generation recipe is difficult, imagine the challenge of tasting a variety of similarly cherished dishes, each by a different cook, and listing them in order of personal preference. Did I mention you have to do this as the cooks in question watch your fork enter your mouth? And then, having made your selection you have to stand up and say why you liked this, or what could have been improved in that. Such was the task facing the judges of the seventh annual Thanksgiving Cook Off at the Avon Park Youth Academy Friday — and actually the utensil used was a spork, not a fork. Sebring Police Chief Tom Dettman; Dave Bassler, program monitor for the Department of Juvenile Justice; Bud Wallen, Veteran Advisory Board; and Bill Foster and Bill Sayers, who are both firefighters with the Avon Park Bombing Range Fire Station, were the other courageous guest judges. We outsiders, however, were not the bravest men there — after all, we could leave (and Dettman has a car with a siren). No, the bravest men there were the three student judges, who would be facing each and every cook daily for the rest of their stay. This isn’t to say that the contestants lacked a sense of humor or humility — they were even polite before, during and after — but you could tell in the way they sat leaning forward, eyes intent on the judges, that there was a lot at steak, er, stake. Before going further it is important to note that the turkey, ham and gravy were made by the culinary students at the academy, who did an excellent job. We were divided into three groups to evaluate everything else — entrees, side dishes and desserts. Dettman, James Sack and I drew side dishes. There were six entries in competition, of which we had to pick a winner and three runners-up. There was spinach casserole, pizza dip, tomato/cucumber/pepper and onion fresh mixed salad in a light vinaigrette, vegetable squares, pizza squares and deep-fried wonton wrappers with sausage filling. The spinach had a wonder flavor, but was on the dry side. The wonton wrappers looked beautiful, but had a confusing taste. The pizza squares didn’t taste as pizzaey as the dip, and the dip was served with a Mexican flavored chip that took away from the Italian pizza taste. That left two unanimous votes for the vegetable squares and the fresh tossed salad. We decided on putting the vegetable squares first because, being men, they seemed to us to be more like cooking. That still left third and fourth place. So we picked the spinach for its flavor and the pizza dip, because without the chip it really was tasty — full disclosure, James thought the chip added a positive zing to the dip.

A tasty, but tough, task Tuffin It Christopher Tuffley See JUDGING, page 7A POLICEBLOTTER Continued on page 6A Special to the News-SunSEBRING — If you hear helicopters flying overhead on Nov. 28-29, don’t worry. The pilots from Coastal Air Service Inc. will be treating hydrilla on Lake Istokpoga. Avariety of professionals and agencies, including Highlands County Aquatic Weed Control, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Helena Chemical and United Phosphorus Inc. will be at the staging area to make sure the project progresses along smoothly. The aerial spraying is done by helicopter and applied to pre-mapped areas where hydrilla is particularly heavy. It is a team effort where every one has a job to do and each agency works with the other to get that job done efficiently. The staff from Weed Control keeps the helicopter’s tanks filled with herbicide when it lands, while others are on boats in Lake Istokpoga making sure the area is clear of vessels in the spray zone. Fish and Wildlife personnel oversee the project and other agency representatives are on site to help out, as well. Hydrilla verticillata is a federally listed noxious weed. It was brought to the U.S. as an aquarium plant in the 1950s. It was discovered growing in natural areas in the ’60s and has spread rapidly since then. It is dubbed the “invisible menace” because it can’t be seen until it tops out, which simply means it has grown so big that it has reached the surface of the water. When this plant invades a water body, many important native plants and animals are put in harm’s way. Native plants can’t survive because they are shaded out by the hydrilla’s thick mats or they are simply out-competed for space and light. The pesky plant also slows water flow and often clogs irrigation and flood control canals. It may hamper navigation and can prevent swimming and fishing in areas where it is particularly thick. If the plant is abundant enough, it can even deplete the oxygen levels in the water which causes fish to die. Unfortunately, many of Highlands County’s lakes are infested with hydrilla. Istokpoga is among the worst and treatments are scheduled two times a year. The treatment scheduled for this month includes 1,856 acres on the east side and southern end of the lake. The herbicide used to treat the green beast is Aquathol K. For the most part, these areas are sprayed to eradicate as much of the plant as possible, however, this year some trails are going to be placed within certain areas Aerial spraying planned for Lake Istokpoga Hydrilla control set for Nov. 28-29 See SPRAYING page 3A

C M Y K Associated PressMIAMI — State health officials say several possible victims have come forward alleging a woman posing as a doctor pumped their buttocks with cement, mineral oil and flat-tire sealant. Oneal Ron Morris was arrested Friday for practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury for performing that procedure on a woman last year. Department of Health officials said Tuesday that several victims have since come forward alleging Morris performed similar procedures that resulted in life-threatening injuries. One victim told authorities she paid $700 for Morris to pump the toxic chemicals into her bottom in a painful procedure resulting in hospitalization and multiple surgeries. The 30-year-old Morris is a man and identifies as a woman. Police say she performed the same surgery on herself.FAMU band shut down after deathTALLAHASSEE — Florida A&M University President James Ammons is suspending all practices and performances of the school’s famed Marching 100 band until investigators can determine what led to a member’s death last weekend. Ammons announced Tuesday that the school will form an independent task force to look into the death of 26-year-old Robert Champion. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 23, 2011Page 3A MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; ff main top right only; 0 0 0 1 3 4 7 0 GRIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 11/23/11; 0 0 0 1 4 2 4 5 Courtesy photo Lisa Celentano, organizer of Dirty Dozen, presents a donation of $350 to John Hendrick of Bernie Little Distributors for the Folds of HonorŽ military charity.

The helicopter pilot will spray strips within the patch, which will enable boaters to get in and out of the area without bogging down in the hydrilla.” Continued from page 2A Buhr said, “too much direction ties your hands.” He said this is because 1968 was a watershed moment. The state rewrote its constitution granting home rule powers to counties and cities. Prior to 1968, local governments were told what they could do. Now, a local government has all powers except those taken by the state. For example, a mayor of a city may not have military power. There are two ways to go about the revision, Buhr said — piecemeal, or rewriting the document totally. Buhr made it clear it is up to the committee, the council and the people to make all the decisions. As an advisor, however, he recommended a complete rewrite since changing the charter piece by piece would mean multiple, expensive referendums because there are state regulations as to how many words may be written on a ballot. In addition, it would be difficult to maintain the public’s interest over a series of votes, and the content could become confusing. Buhr presented a possible charter fashioned after a League of Cities model. It is eight pages long compared to the more than 20 page current document. He also distributed the current charter with his recommended additions and deletions. One consideration, Buhr said, is to sort out what policy is better set out through city ordinances, as opposed to outlined in a charter. It is important to adhere to a charter’s provisions and ordinances are easier to change should adaptations have to be made. The committee will review both the revised charter and the proposed charter before making any recommendations to the council. The members also insisted on providing an opportunity for public comment. “The more they are involved, the better,” Hall said. “This will not be an overnight process.” Hall said that while he regretted the extra cost to the city, he felt it important to hear from the city’s labor attorney Brian Koji regarding how the city should deal with personnel contracts, and ask the city manager for insight into day-to-day operations before making any decisions. Other members had questions, too. Roberts was concerned with issues relating to eminent domain and Bennett with the civil service board that has just been appointed. It was agreed that another meeting would be scheduled at 4:30 p.m. Dec. 12. It will be held at the council chambers.

AP city charter overhaul begins Associated PressCHICAGO — Seven vinyl banners draped this month along one of Chicago’s most iconic bridges, advertisements some have dubbed “a visual crime” and “commercial graffiti,” are reviving a debate about how governments raise money in tough economic times. In the aftermath of the Great Recession, a public school district in Colorado is selling ads on report cards and Utah has a new law allowing ads on school buses. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration, straining to fill a $600 million budget hole, is looking to raise $25 million from ads on city property — including bridges, electrical storage boxes and garbage cans. The effort kicked off this month with Bank of America ads on the 81year-old Wabash Avenue Bridge, which crosses the Chicago River and has appeared in movies including “About Last Night” and “The Dark Knight.” “I think it’s disgusting,” Chicago resident Linda Rosenthal said recently, shaking her head as she surveyed the signs. “The architecture in Chicago is stunning. To see this awful advertisement angers me.” The white ads with blue lettering and Bank o f America’s logo are posted on limestone bridge tende r houses, which hold the equipment used to raise the bridge when tall boats pass beneath. Bank of America paid $4,500 to put seven signs on the bridge fo r about a month, said city spokeswoman Kathleen Strand. Strand promised the city’s new campaign will have “policies to protect the integrity of Chicago’s facade” and likened the initiative to the Chicago Transit Authority bringing in about $20 million annually from abundant ads on buses and elevated trains that don’t seem to ange r anybody. “The municipal marketing strategy is really abou t pursuing innovative opportunities to avoid having to cut city services or increase the tax burden on Chicagoans,” Strand said.

Who cares for our caregivers?Editor: As the executive director of NuHope Elder Care Services, the designated lead agency for home and community-based services for older adults in Highlands and Hardee counties, I was quite alarmed and disheartened by the events featured in the article, SO: Wife, 87, used 4 knives to kill husband (Nov. 13). This article epitomizes the downward spiral correlated to caregiver stress. According to the National Alliance for Caregiving, more than 65 million people, or 29 percent of the population, provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend during any given year, with 43.5 million people caring for someone 50 years of age or older. Caregiving takes a tremendous toll on caregivers' health and well-being. Family caregiving has been associated with increased levels of depression and anxiety, higher use of psychotropic medications, decreased self-reported physical health, compromised immunity, and increased mortality. Caregiver stress is the emotional and physical strain of caregiving. Anumber of studies have found that female caregivers are more likely than males to suffer from high stress due to caregiving (35 percent versus 25 percent). Many caregivers of older adults are themselves older. Of those caring for someone over the age of 65, the average age of caregivers is 63 years with one-third of these caregivers in fair to poor health. The following list are symptoms of caregiver stress: feeling overwhelmed sleeping too much or too little gaining or losing a lot of weight feeling tired most of the time loss of interest in activities you previously enjoyed becoming easily irritated or angered Though the challenges of caregiving are significant, it is important to know that it is ok to ask for help.

There were fabulous prizes, gift cards and delicious food provided for our special golfers. This tournament provides the Meals on Wheels with its largest source of funding to help supplement seniors who cant afford to pay the full amount of the meal for daily nutrition. The sponsors who so graciously gave are Alan Jay Automotive, Bill Jarrett Ford, Cohan Radio Group, Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, Keller Williams Realty, Merrill Lynch, Palms of Sebring, Positive Medical Transport, Spas, Pools, & Patio, Sunny Hills Assisted Living, News-Sun, Highlands Today, and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. We also thank our many Hole Sponsors. Without this group effort of supporters we would be unable to feed our elderly. Once again, we cant be successful without you. Meals on Wheels Board MembersCourageous is a good movie to seeEditor: I wish I was able to tell the world just how great the movie Courageous is. The actors that are the stars are names you more than likely will not know as they are not big name stars. I know in this area Courageous did not get any big spreads in the newspapers, but dont let that fool you. Couragous is a movie to be seen. No nudity, no Xrated words, just a plain Christian movie. My pastor, Ted Moore, told the people at church a number of weeks back that if any one of us couldnt afford the movie to let him know and he and Flossie (his wife would pay for us to see it. My husband could well afford it so some friends of ours went. Courageous was not like what any of us where expecting. I really dont know what I was expecting, but I was totally wrong. If you need any help with raising your kids or grandkids, see Courageous while it is still at the mall. I think you will be glad you did. Judee Van brookhoven Sebring Things could always be worse, seems too cold a comfort to be a reason for gratitudea nd celebration, but it is true. We all know the story of how the Pilgrims and theW ampanoag Indians joined together in 1621 for a feast of T hanksgiving after surviving that first harsh winter and reaping a life-saving harvest then ext autumn. Many, however, dont reali ze just how difficult that winter was. According to history.com, of the 102 original immigrants on the Mayflower, only 53 were still alive to givet hanks not quite a year later. Imagine what it was like to l ive on the edge of a continent in the 1600s. Thick forests l ined a rocky coast that was pitch black at night, that darkness filled with unknown, terri-f ying sounds and partly because of your own mistakes increasingly hostile neigh-b ors. Imagine that the only tools y ou have are those you brought on the journey. Rain drips through the roof and windh owls through the walls. Imagine living with the knowle dge that a broken bone or a simple cold could easily lead to your death. It could be worse. In 1863, President Abraham L incoln proclaimed the first permanent national T hanksgiving Day, to be celebrated on the last day in November. At the time it appeared the United States ofA merica might not survive intact, and hundreds of thousands of men had already died. Think about what it was like to live during the Civil War,e specially in the South where almost all of the fighting was done. W hole cities and towns burned to the ground, fields of crops ruined, animals slaugh-t ered so there is nothing to eat. Imagine starvation setting in. I t could be worse. Living through the Great Depression wasnt much better.F arms disappearing in the dust bowl, opportunities ending. A nd World War II was no picnic, especially you were a combat soldier, flier, sailor or marine. It could be worse.W hat we all need to remember is that while we may look b ack at the Pilgrims, the Civil War, the 1930s and 40s with nostalgia thats mostly because we werent there andk now how it all ended living t hrough it was another matter. The difference, besides the actual conditions, is not knowing what comes next, or howl ong it will take. Thats one reason today is so uncomfortable and grim we cant mark o ff days knowing when it will e nd, or if it will get better. One thing we do know is that if the Americans who came before us could make their way through difficult days days that make our current painful time seem not so bad then so can we. I t can always be worse. O ur sons and daughters s erving in Iraq, for example might still be facing years in harms way. But theyre not. As we prepare to welcome them home for Christmas, letu s give thanks. It really could be worse. Be thankful ... it could be a whole lot worse After years of foreclosures, layoffs, rising prices and war, we can understand if people are wondering just what to be thankful about this Thanksgiving.

Continued from page 2A POLICEBLOTTER OBITUARIES Associated PressNEWHAVEN, Conn. — A U-Haul official said Monday that it was “reckless” for an attorney who represents the driver of a rented truck that struck and killed a woman at the Yale-Harvard football game to claim that the vehicle malfunctioned while police are still investigating. Yale undergraduate Brendan Ross was behind the wheel of the truck that witnesses said sped up as it drove into a parking lot full of tailgaters on Saturday, hitting three women, including one who died. William Dow, an attorney for Ross, said without elaborating over the weekend that the crash was an accident that was apparently caused by a vehicle malfunction. U-Haul Co. of Connecticut President Pete Sciortino dismissed Dow’s remarks as premature speculation “As a criminal defense attorney, we realize that Mr. Dow has a job to do; however, without any factual basis for such a claim, his premature speculation regarding a vehicle malfunction during a pending investigation is reckless, inappropriate and disrespectful to the victims and their families and to the other various communities involved in this tragedy,” Sciortino said in a statement. The truck will be inspected, and it could take weeks or months before police can determine whether anyone should face charges, said Officer David Hartman, a spokesman for the New Haven police. The vehicle involved in the crash was up-to-date on scheduled maintenance, said Joanne Fried, a spokeswoman for U-Haul International Inc. Ross passed a field sobriety test after the crash, and police said he has been cooperative in their investigation of the crash. Police said Ross was driving the U-Haul carrying beer kegs through a popular tailgating area before the football game when witnesses saw the vehicle turn a corner and speed up, striking three women, including 30-yearold Nancy Barry, of Salem, Mass., who was killed. U-Haul disputes lawyers claim in Yale death By GARYFINEOUT The Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — The top Florida official in charge of the state’s checkbook wants more control over state contracts even though it could set up a clash with Gov. Rick Scott. Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater on Monday called on state legislators to give him more power, including the ability to approve or reject state contracts before they get signed. He also wants to limit what state agencies can purchase without going through competitive bidding. This potentially puts Atwater on a collision course with Scott, a fellow Republican, since most state agencies report to the governor and not to the chief financial officer. Atwater is responsible for paying the state’s bills and has the power to block payment for questionable or illegal expenses. Atwater didn’t mention the governor directly, but in a statement outlining his legislative priorities for the coming year he defended the idea of having more control over the billions in contracts approved each year by the state. “As your elected representatives, you have entrusted us to watch over the money you send to our government,” Atwater said. “Strict contracting standards are simply a reflection of how seriously we take that responsibility.” Amy Graham, a spokeswoman for Scott, said on Monday that Atwater’s office has not discussed specific proposals with Scott. The push by Atwater to get more control over state contracts comes just days after both he and Scott stood sideby-side at the Capitol and called on state legislators to do something about auto insurance fraud they say is costing consumers. Florida’s annual legislative session starts in January. Graham said that the governor’s office looks forward to working with Atwater on “our mutual goals” of reducing regulations, eliminating auto insurance fraud and “keeping the cost of living low for Floridians.” Earlier this year Scott himself clamped down on state contracts when he suspended all contracts worth more than $1 million until they could first be reviewed by his office. The suspension was lifted in April. But state legislators have pushed to tighten controls over state contracts in recent years, going so far to pass a bill that would have shifted some control over contracts to the Republican-led Florida Legislature. Then-Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed the measure in 2009, calling i t more bureaucracy that could potentially limit economic growth. Atwater was Senate president at the time the bill was passed by legislators. Anna Alexopoulos, a spokeswoman for Atwate r contended that the state is still moving ahead with contracts where the work required is “nebulous,” state employees are approving payments without prope r documentation and there is little penalty for not adequately performing the work outlined in the contract. Alexopoulos cited one contract where a vendor is getting paid $20,000 a month to provide three training classes but the vendor is only actually doing one class a month.

C M Y K the loan into two transactions. “Since interest has gone down, we realize that there is potential savings in refinancing,” said Wortman. Wortman and PFM believe that Sebring could get about five percent savings from refinancing the loan. The current rate and value on the loan is at 2.16 percent which is a “very attractive” rate, according to Wortman. The final maturity of the loan goes out in 2023. “Essentially, what we would be doing is borrowing the money from PNC and putting that cash into an escrow until Jan. 1, 2013 when the escrow agents will pay off the bond holders of the 2002 bonds,” Wortman explained. Wortman informed the Council that the recommended option would lock in a savings of about $2 million over the life of the issue. The loan would save the city 11.25 percent in total costs. “Normally, we recommend refunding a loan if it has at least three percent in savings. We wouldn’t recommend it if it had less than three percent in savings, but 11.25 percent, that’s pretty good on your half. You’ll be saving over $213,000 a year until 2023,” Wortman said. city governments would not even discuss the matter with him, he said. According to Martin, if the county lifted its ban on vending, he and several others would be able to sell six days a week instead of waiting on events, and that could put not only him, but an additional six to eight people to work. “We pay, as an average, $10 per hour for help. I know that I would put people to work right away, and so would the other guys. It’s a matter of being allowed to do business. The county is stifling the opportunity,” Martin insisted. Martin discovered in July that the county, as well as the municipalities, have ordinances in place that prohibit someone from setting up and selling products without a brick-and-mortar store, and say that is a violation of their rights under the Florida Constitution. “We don’t want to seek legal action if we can avoid it. Right now there are suits in other communities filed by the Institute for Justice seeking to reverse ordinances that prohibit vendors like us,” Martin said. “I am making a formal request to the Institute to file suit. I have talked to several of their attorneys, and they are willing to look at our case,: Martin said. The Institute for Justice filed suit in October against the city of Hialeah for prohibiting vendors like Martin. According to its website, the Institute for Justice, Florida Chapter, “launched its litigation effort with a state constitutional lawsuit against the city of Hialeah, which imposes anti-competitive regulations designed to hamper street vendors while protecting brick-and-mortar businesses from competition — hardly a proper use of government power. “IJ-FLwill similarly litigate on behalf of entrepreneurs who wish to earn an honest living in the occupation of their choice, but who have encountered government-imposed roadblocks to their pursuit...,” their website at www.ij.org/ states. “That could be our only recourse,” Martin said. That suit is still pending. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 23, 2011Page 7A COCHRAN BROTHERS ROOFING; 5.542"; 3"; Black; November ads; 0 0 0 1 3 4 7 4 DUMMY 09; 7.444"; 7"; Black; rotary wgd; 0 0 0 1 3 7 7 6 FRAMES AND IMAGES; 3.639"; 3"; Black; make good; 0 0 0 1 4 2 5 7 Continued from page 1A This is where, however, it got embarrassing. In ascending order we announced our choices. With the word spinach barely spoken there was a squeal in the audience, “That’s me,” hollered a happy voice as Leslie Zeegers came forward. Leslie had barely gotten back to her seat when we announced the pizza dip in third place. “That’s me,” shouted Leslie, laughing as she collected her gift card from her husband, who just happens to be Pete Zeegers, the academy’s director. By now we three side dish judges were holding our hands up swearing the event wasn’t rigged. Yoly Turner made the delicious salad, her secrets being quality, fresh ingredients and Kraft Seven Seas red wine vinaigrette. “It has to be Seven Seas,” she said. Robin Cook — and don’t bother asking her if she’s the author, she’s long since tired of the joke — surprised me when I asked about the vegetable squares recipe. “It’s something I ad-libbed,” she said, shrugging modestly. The squares consisted of raw small florets of broccoli and cauliflower, covered with shredded cheese, laid on a foundation of cream cheese and ranch dressing, slathered on wh at I think was foccacia bread (I forgot to ask) The squares looked and tasted good, with a crunchy bite and smooth chaser. Other winners Friday were Rocio French, who won second place in the entree division with her authentic Peruvian chicken stew; and Donna Whiddon, whose three-color chicken casserole drew meaningful praise from the firefighters (firemen being, as we all know, excellent cooks). “The ultimate comfort food,” they said. Another small embarrassment in the entree division — Leslie Zeegers picked up yet another gift card with her third place riblets. The dessert category presented the tightest competition, but M.J. Ward was the clear winner with her peanut butter pie — one participant remarking as Ward stepped forward, “When I heard she was entering her pie, I didn’t bother making a dessert.” Aseelah Knighten and Nichole Brown created the second-place winner — a giant fresh fruit and custard tart. While being a cooking contest judge is steeped in anxiety, it does have its rewards. Just ask Chief Dettman who went back for ... wait, this is another lesson learned in life ... I’ll just say more.

According to Cook’s defense attorney Guillermo Gomez, Cook had prohibited the girl under his care from having a lesbian relationship, and that led to retaliation and accusation. “It was clear that the victim had made a false accusation. Her accusations fell apart finally because they were false,” said Gomez. “Justice was finally served.” But Gomez added that the way the case was handled was also wrong. “These cases should be prosecuted, but there should have been a better screening process before charges were brought. The girl was interrogated for four hours by two untrained detectives without proper representation. She denied anything happened until she was so exhausted that she would say anything to make them stop. The DNAevidence on a towel turned out to be from another man, and we had trouble getting this trial to court,” Gomez said. Additionally, a rape kit taken within 72 hours of the original accusation did not turn up any of Cook's DNA. “The case was mismanaged from the start. All at a huge expense to Mr. Cook and to the Highlands County taxpayer,” Gomez said. “For some reason, they got involved with this case and couldn’t see the forest for the trees,” Gomez said about the State Attorney’s Office. “I really don’t understand why this case went this far. My client has maintained his innocence from the beginning. He has refused plea bargains that would have made this go away several times over, and he finally got his day in court,” Gomez said. During a hearing on April 7, 2010 in front of Judge Peter Estrada at the Highlands County Courthouse, defense attorney Guillermo Gomez said DNAevidence taken by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) from a towel from Cook’s house belongs to another man. Cook still faces a second set of charges for allegedly making the two girls have lesbian sex, but Gomez said that charge should also be dropped. “Well, this case has been so unpredictable, but those charges were for a supposed event in July of 2007, and it has been shown that the girls’testimony is not credible,” Gomez said. “We have a trial scheduled in January, but I suspect those charges will be dropped. I mean, the jury would had have to have seen it happen before they could find him guilty,” Gomez said. “I just knew that the justice system would work on this one.” “I just want to get on with my life,” said Cook.

But many food banks are askingd onors to think twice before dropping ramen noodles and frosted cereals in donation barrels. Many commonly donated foods are high in salt, sugaro r calories, making them poor choices for people with h igh blood pressure, diabetes and other diet-related health problems. With more peoplet urning to food banks and for longer periods of time, a gency officials say they need donations but theyd like to see people give the kind of healthy and nutritious items theyd serve to theiro wn families. Sherrie Tussler, the execut ive director of the Hunger Task Forces Milwaukee office, said people tend tod onate cheap foods without paying much attention to the n utrition content and they may do so with the best of intentions. For example, peo-p le who fondly recall living off of ramen noodles in college tend to donate them to f ood banks, even though a single serving can have half t he recommended daily allowance of sodium. e say, if thats what youre going to give, turn around and get a bag of rice,T ussler said. Its just as good a value, it lasts for more meals and theres no salt. Pantry officials also say they receive plenty of soups, along with processed foods such as ravioli. Many varieties are heavy on calories and salt and light on nutrients. Better choices would bel ow-sodium soups and bags of whole-wheat pasta. Tussler also recommended avoiding fruit packed in heavy syrups and drinks thata rent 100 percent juice which are often diluted with sugar water. Those are the type of products that could kill Dorothy Jones, a 63-year-old diabeticw ho picks up food once a month at a Milwaukee food p antry to supplement her Social Security checks. Jones has to watch her sugar intake,a nd after a heart attack two months ago, her doctor also t old her to reduce her intake of salt, fats and carbohydrates. Jones said she understands the impulse to try to lift peoples spirits withc ookies and other treats but theyre no good for a diabeti c. o be honest Id rather have fruit, she said. T hats an item most food drive organizers wont accept b ecause of concerns about spoilage, and many donors on tight budgets themselves dont feel they can spring for. But many larger food b anks also receive food from corporate donors retailers, g rocery stores and food manufacturers and groups that grow fruits and vegetables. Those donations go a long way toward helping themp rovide healthy meals. Cindy McCown, a director at the Second Harvest Food Bank in San Jose, Calif., said nearly half of what her organization provides is fresh produce. That kind of help is important to people like PatriciaH oward, 50, who picked up a bag of groceries at a Salvation Army pantry in M ilwaukee. She needs iron because she has anemia and s aid shed rather get it by eating leafy greens than taking supplements. The grocery bag she received recently included peanut butter,s paghetti, tomato sauce and corn flakes all foods that she said were valuable. The fact that people donate something, Im grateful for that, Howard said. But I just hope people ask themselves, Am I givings omething healthy? The Greater Chicago Food Depository, which supplies 6 50 pantries, soup kitchens and shelter, gets the bulk of i ts donations from corporations, and executive Bob Dolgan said it doesnt accept candy, chips and soda. e also dont see those i tems as being in demand in pantries, he said. They want meat, dairy, bread, produce. So what foods are healthy, in demand and inexpensive enough not to bust donors budgets? Food bank operators recommend nonperishables such as: low-sugar cereal such as Cheerios or Chex; peanut butter; cans or plastic containers of juice (make sure its1 00 percent juice); canned vegetables, any variety, marked lite or lowsodium; bags of pinto or black beans; rice; canned tuna fish; and powdered milk fortified with vitamin D. Donors should avoid: foods high in sodium, fat, oils or sugar; chips, candy, cookies and crackers sugary beverages; items in glass bottles; and items that are e xpired or in damaged packaging. S ome food pantries are equipped to accept frozen foods such as turkey, chickena nd vegetables and other perishables like fruit and milk, b ut donors should call ahead. The simplest and most appreciated donation isc ash. Pantry officials can use the money cash or grocery gift cards to buy whatever h ealthy staples are in low supply. Also, because they p urchase in bulk, they get more for the money than the average grocery shopper does. $15 donation goes a l ong way toward getting fresh, healthy stuff, Tussler said. People say $15 doesnt do much because it only buys one meal but really, it makes a big difference.

C M Y K By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK It was ugly, but it was a win for the Lady Devils who beat Hardee 57-22 M onday night in Avon Park. Not good. This was not good. We missed lay-ups and rebounds, head coach Paulette Daley said afterward. We did so much reaching. Im not proud. The Devil defense looked strong at the outset of the game, holding Hardee to just 12 points at the half, but Avon Park lost the steam to put the Lady Cats away in a timely fashion because of missed shots. We missed layups, passing, moving our feet. Pretty much the whole thing, Daley said. I can tell you this, as far as the passing goes, we were not playing our assignments. They were not in their right place. They have assignments, but they By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comARCADIA It was your t ypical season-opening boys varsity basketball contest, if what you imagine that to be is anything but the norm. A ggressive defense, poor shooting, a break-neck pace w ith numerous turnovers all paving the way to a wild f inish that would see DeSoto run off 12 straight points in t he final minute-anda-half and lose to Sebring by a 57-50 margin. Which was somewhat fitting, in that, with Sebring holding a 56-38 lead with 1:45 left to play, the thought was that this score did not indicate how close this game had been up until that point. As the two teams set for the opening tip, they seemed mirror images of one another, the Blue Streaks and Bulldogs. Alittle bit of size in the middle, long-armed wingmen and small, quick backcourts. Similar in style of play as well, with stifling defenses, hard-charging offenses but neither team seeming to have consistent outside shooting. This lead to a bevy of wild drives to the basket and frenetic runs toward the other end, with more wild drives to the basket. S ebring did get an opening jumper from Decaris Jones, and took a 4-0 lead on a Jared Cannon putback thought hat score, the second of the game, came at the 4:11 mark o f the first quarter. DeSoto finally broke into t he scoring column on a follow, but Matt Taylor scored i nside for a 6-2 lead. Marquis Dickens g ot a put-back on the break and was answered by Blue Streak Jonathan Tookes score on a fast break. But Kavauris Polk drained a three at the buzzer to cut the lead to 8-7 after one. The Bulldogs would then take their first, and only, lead of the game on a Adrian Harris drive to open the second, but they would only add one more point the rest of the period. Taylor followed with a drive and Jones got out on the break for two. Tookes sank one from downtown and, after a Jimmy Williams free throw, Cannon scored on a lay-up at the buzzer for a 17-10 lead at the half. Now, had this been a much-hyped, blockbuster action movie, movie-goers might have been headed for the exits at this point. B ut the first half was just the slow build-up to a wild and reckless second half. Asecond half that saw the t urnovers pile up by the b ushel, and with each team scoring more in each of the next two quarters than they had in the first half. DeSoto, in fact, would score more in the fourth than it had in the first three quarters combined. Helped, in part, by the Streaks having 19 turnovers in the final 16 minutes of p lay. The Bulldogs scored the first seven points of the third to tie it at 17-17, but Jones and Taylor went for back-tob ack scores before Jonathan Richardson kept DeSoto close with an inside bucket. Davaris Faulk scored on a running bank shot, answered by a Dickens follow for a 232 1 Sebring lead. Cannon drove the lane for two but a three-point play Pedro Buenrostro cut it to 2524. The Streak defense, however, would clamp down an SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, November 23, 2011 NASCAR This Week4B Avon Park57Hardee22 Sebring57DeSoto50 Special to the News-SunAfree lunch and a chance to win a great prize are what registered anglers will get when they volunteer to help out with a black crappie ( speckled perch) tagging study the morning of Saturday, Dec. 3, on Lake Istokpoga.

By BRENTKALLESTAD Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State hopes to salvage at least one of its preseason goals Saturday in its regular season finale at Florida. The Seminoles (7-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) look to rebound from their most surprising loss in Jimbo Fishers two years as head coach. Florida State is looking to win the mythical state championship for the second straight year when they meet the Gators (6-5, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) completing a sweep of Miami and Florida. s a great time for us to get some respect back, Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel said Monday. Florida State, which was ranked fifth nationally in mid-September, dropped out of the rankings after Saturdays 14-13 homecoming loss Saturday to Virginia, a three touchdown underdog. The Cavaliers went 75 yards in 37 seconds for the game-winning touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Defensively when we needed the one big stop, we didnt get it, Fisher lamented. Missed opportunities. The preseason hype that had Florida State favored to win the ACC and possibly more has long ago dissipated. The Seminoles are fighting to avoid one of those 76 seasons that became all too common in the last decade and led to the departure of long-time coach Bobby Bowden. I dont think theres anything wrong with the direction were going, Fisher said. We just havent gotten there this year. We stumbled and theres been a lot of reasons why Penalties and not being able to pick up a tough yard in key situations have been a season-long menace to the Seminoles. Fisher blamed mental fatigue toward the end of the season on some if his teams sloppiness in the Virginia loss. It happens, Fisher said. s something as coaches that we have to address. But its hard to tell just where his team stands. The Seminolesvictories this season are over teams who are a combined 32-67, including Charleston Southern, which finished 0-11 and 3-8 Louisiana-Monroe. Florida State hasnt beaten any team thats better than 6-5 this year. The Seminoles have lost to six different ACC schools in the past two years and are an unremarkable 15-8 (not including a pair of wins over lower-division schools). Fisher said Monday that it takes time to rebuild the program to where it was in Bowdens heyday. ere not that far away from winning, Fisher said. I love the direction were going. I dont like that we lost. Were very close. All that remains between now and next year is Florida on Saturday and then a bowl game. The Seminoles will face a tougher schedule next year when West Virginia visits Sept. 8 and then an intrastate battle in Tampa against South Florida on Sept. 29 in a matchup of senior quarterbacks Manuel and USFs B.J. Daniels. Obviously every season we come in wanting to be a national championship contender, said Manuel, resisting any impulse to look too far ahead. But we still have two more games. And while the players and coaches are wrapping up a grueling four months, Fisher isnt expecting his team having any problems being ready for Florida despite its disappointments. ou wont have any problem getting emotion for this game, Fisher said.

Manuel during action against Miami on Saturday, November 12. Florida State hung on for a 2319 win and hopes to get the state sweep this Saturday against Florida. Lady Red Devils waylay Wildcats See AP, Page 3B By STEVEN WINE Associated PressDAVIE When Matt Moore throws, he sometimes looks like Chad Pennington. In Miami there can hardly be higher praise for a passer, aside from comparisons to Dan Marino. Moores the 16th starting quarterback for Miami since Marino retired, and after playing just seven games, he already ranks among the best. Thats not saying much, but lately he has been making a strong case as a long-term solution at the position. After the Dolphins0-7 start, Moore has led them to three consecutive victories, including a 35-8 drubbing of Buffalo on Sunday. In those wins he has six touchdown passes and one interception while completing 71 percent of his throws. Matt has done a tremendous job, coach Tony Sparano said Monday. Its all about what you do with your opportunities in our league. As of right now, hes doing a nice job with his opportunity s a huge, huge difference-maker the reason weve been successful these past few games, teammate Reggie Bush said. Might Moore be QB keeper for Dolphins? See MOORE, Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Matt Taylor gets loose inside for two of his 14 points in Sebrings season-opening win at DeSoto.

C M Y K The Dolphins (3-7 preparing to face Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. They appeared unworthy of a national TVaudience less than a month ago, but the midseason turnaround has made them worth watching. Theyve outscored the past three opponents 86-20. It feels great, man, center Mike Pouncey said. We could have easily given up on our season, but this team stayed focused, and we believed in our coaches, believed in ourselves and wanted to win. Asoft stretch in the schedule helped. None of the teams Miami beat has a winning record. And defense has been a big factor in the revival: The Dolphins havent given up a touchdown this month. But the offense is undeniably improved, making a transition into an efficient, opportunistic unit after being awful in the red zone and on third down through the first seven games. As with blame when a teams sputtering, credit starts with the quarterback. Matts just playing lights out, Bush said. Hes playing amazing. Hes throwing great balls. Hes a leader. Hes poised. He is everything you need. Moore has displayed a strong arm, as his deep pass to Charles Clay for a 46-yard gain against Buffalo showed. While his accuracy draws criticism, he has lobbed several completions into tight coverage a la Pennington. Also like Pennington, Moore keeps his poise when receivers are slow to get open, such as on Sunday when he moved enough in a collapsing pocket to buy extra time before completinga third-down pass to Clay. Those are the things that he has been able to do that have been productive, Sparano said. They dont look pretty, but theyre winner plays. Undrafted out of Oregon State, Moore went 10-13 as a starter in three seasons with Carolina. Moore signed as Miamis backup at the beginning of this years training camp and became the starter when Chad Henne was sidelined in Week 4 by a season-ending shoulder injury. The Dolphinswinless record through seven games prompted projections that their next quarterback might be Andrew Luck. Now theyre fading from contention for the Stanford quarterback, but if they keep winning with Moore, the need to use a first-round draft pick on a QB next year will ease. Moore, whos under contract through 2012, declined to speculate on his future. I just want to keep playing well and winning, he said. Wherever that gets me or takes me, so be it. His tryout for a starting job next season has six games to go. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 23, 2011Page 3B H ARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 3 3 7 7 4 4 0 0 UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 3.639"; 5"; Black; **internet included**; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 4 4 2 2 5 5 5 5 UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 3.639"; 5"; Black; **internet included**; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 4 4 2 2 5 5 5 5 HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 3 3 7 7 4 4 0 0 not allow another point in the period. Taylor, meanwhile, split a pair at the line, with Sebring getting the rebound on the miss, leading to a Tookes t hree. C annon scored inside, as d id Taylor on a nice dish from Jones. Jones then finished the quarter on a fast-break lay-in for a 35-24 lead. The Streaks would hold the lead in the sevento ninepoint range for the first few m inutes of the final period, w ith Taylor and Grant Strickland each making two at the line. But after a Jones jumper, H arris scored inside and was fouled, for a three-point play that cut it to 41-35 with 4:58 left to play. Thats when it was blown open, however, as Taylor made one-of-two, Jones hit a floater and then split a pair at the line. After a Polk free throw, Taylor worked inside for two and then had one of his six blocked shots on the night turn into a Jones fast-break score. Rashad Dennis then hit o ne-of-two from the charity stripe before Cannon hit a three and Tookes sank a teardrop. Harris added another DeSoto free throw, but a Faulk drive had it at the 5638 lead at the 1:45 mark that lead Sebring head coach Princeton Harris to pull some main starters. Aflurry of turnovers lead to the Bulldogs late charge, pushing Harris to send a few starters back on the floor for the waning seconds. If you offer me an ugly win or a pretty loss, Ill take the win, Harris said. There were a lot of mistakes, 31 turnovers. But its the first game and we just got several football players back in the mix with just four practices as a full team. Jones and Harris each scored 15 for game-high honors, with Taylor adding 14 and Cannon and Tookes 11 each. I got what I expected out of certain players and hope to just get some more from some of the football players as we move ahead, Harris added. But weve got to g et it together and be ready to r un again in about 20 hours. But I know theyll be up for i t. U p for it indeed as the Streaks were in Avon Park Tuesday night to face the redhot Red Devils, coming off two convincing wins in last weeksBill Jarrett Tip-Off Tournament.

H ardee gave up over 20 turnovers, which led to a lot o f the Devil buckets, but Avon Park only hit four of their 12 attempts at the line. Not to take anything away from Hardee, but we just did not follow through with our assignments, Daley said. We will be working on free throws, and assignments. We have to bea little more disciplined. When you play tougher teams, if you get hit in them outh, you dont know how to react. But when you are up, you need to put the other team away, Daley continued. We didnt do that here. We should have been able to put this team away, but we didnt.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunL AKE PLACID Micah Scanga, executive director of the Mason G. SmoakF oundation, was the guest speaker at last weeks meeting of the Lake Placid Noon R otary Club. Scanga has been director since Sept. 21. H e came from the Dade City area and enjoys playing basketball. Hehas a masters degree in agricultural life sciences. M ason Smoak died in a plane crash in 2008, at which time the family decided to dedicate the foundation in memory of Mason. They knew that Mason would be happy with the idea of af aith-based,giving back to the community foundation, a s he did when he was with us. The foundationhasnow began to pick up speed and will begin giving not only scholarships, but toothern on-profit organizations also. Scanga said the foundation sponsors Leadership Students for tenth-graders (15and 16-year-olds). The students meet five times a y ear to learn leadership, speaking and learning leadership activities, such as visit-i ng the New Testament Mission.

Veterans from four branche s of service Geri McQueen, Marine Corps; Herman DuBoice, Navy;R ick Straight, Air Force; and Dick Cole, Army flanked the marker in patri-o tic pride and remembrance. Witnessing the rededicat ion were Avon Park Mayor Sharon Shuler, Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray, and C ity Councilmen Terry Heston and Paul Miller. First, hands covered hearts as all recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Then, Betty Hannah, Avon Park F ounders Garden Club vice-president, read ane xplanation of what a Blue Star Marker means and the contributions of garden c lubs in the maintenance of t he markers. Anita Helbig, club president, followed with a history of Avon Parks own Blue Star Marker. The markers location on U.S. 27 and Main Street enables motorists on U.S. 27 to see the marker and to remember our veteranssacrifices. At the same time, the markers location places it in harms way. Twice the marker has been knocked over by out-ofcontrol semi-trucks. Currently, the marker stands tall, scrubbed and repainted by the Founders Garden Club. On the day before, the garden club held its November meeting at the home of a member hostess who is a sixth-generation Floridian. She served Florida-friendly desserts including grapefruit pie, lemon pie and orange pound cake. Cindy Stanley, Vicky Albritton and Ms. Goode were first-time visitors to the garden club meeting. The guest speaker was Charlie Reynolds, who moved to Florida just in time for Hurricane Charley. Reynolds is a Master Gardener and Master Naturalist who graduated from South Florida Community Colleges Horticulture and Landscaping program. A volunteer with IFAS University of Florida, Highlands County Extension Service in Sebring, he presented an interesting program on interizing Your L andscape. Reynolds described diff erent kinds of winter cold. An advective winter freeze is the worst kind. Theres ab ig mass of cold air, the temperature suddenly drops 20 degrees and it is usually a ccompanied by wind. Protect your plants from w ind if possible, as wind will dry out a plant. The cooler the air gets, the drier the plant gets. Aradiational winter f reeze is slow, gradually dropping in temperature to the freezing point. But a subtropical plant can adapt. In this case, the plant suddenly starts putting out hormones and sugar. The plantc an sometimes protect itself, unlike in an advect ive freeze. In a gradual winter freeze, the plants will acclimate. Reynolds states that Sebring is in the magic area its considered a subtropical region of Florida, without prevailing winds. The winds may come from north, south, east or west.O ne never knows. To winterize your plants, fertilize in the fall, not after October. Water plants and mulch before a freeze as the water absorbs and releases a lot of heat during a freeze. Bring tender potted plants inside and cover plants outside if possible. Plastic can be used only if a hole is left in the top of the cover and its vented in several places. Dont water lawns at all in the winter as grass goes dormant in December. Reynolds stated that the best pesticide is a healthy plant. It can withstand freezes a lot better. Starting in January 2012, residents with lawn sprinkler system concerns may contact the Highlands Extension Office for a home appointment by several Master Gardeners in a mobile irrigation lab. Theyll come to your house and try to help you with watering. On Nov. 14, Founders Garden Club members decorated Avon Park City Hall for the holidays. To carry out the theme of History of Avon Park, photographs of Avon Park adorn holiday cards on a Christmas tree inside City Hall and photographs of 17 Avon Park mayors are displayed in wreaths covering three levels of the stairways. The next meeting of the club will be a holiday brunch hosted by Jody Griffing on Thursday, Dec. 15. Call club president Anita Helbig at 452-1927.

CELEBRATIONS Births By DERRIK J. LANG APEntertainment WriterLOS ANGELES Taylor Swift and Adele tied with three wins at the American Music Awards, but the event belonged to the country superstar after she beat the soulful crooner, as well as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Lil Wayne, to win artist of the year, the ceremonys highest accolade, which the 21-year-old singer-songwriter previously claimed in 2009. This is so crazy, beamed Swift, who also picked up the trophies for favorite country female artist and favorite country album for Speak Now. Adele had been the nights leading nominee with four bids, but the soulful singer didnt have much of a presence during the show: She was absent from the ceremony because she is recovering from recent throat surgery. Adele tied Swift with three awards, nabbing favorite pop/rock female artist, adult contemporary artist and pop/rock album for . Other winners included Maroon 5 as favorite poprock band/duo/group, Beyonce as favorite soul/R&B female artist, Bruno Mars as pop/rock male artist, Foo Fighters as favorite alternative rock artist, Rihanna for favorite soul/R&B album for Loud, Hot Chelle Rae as new artist of the year and Lady Antebellum as favorite country band/duo/group. e thank you very much for an incredible year, Lady Asinger Charles Kelley told fans. Nicki Minaj kicked off the 39th annual fan-favorite ceremony with an over-the-top performance that featured the pink-loving singer sporting a pair of speakers on her muchtalked about derriere. She later earned two trophies: favorite rap/hip-hop artist, besting a group that included mentor Lil Wayne, and favorite rap/hip-hop album for Pink Friday Chase your dreams, the pink-haired Minaj encouraged the audience. I never thought this could be possible. The sprawling three-hour ceremony inside the Nokia Theatre in an unusually rainy Los Angeles was drenched with musical performances, including Justin Bieber getting into the holiday spirit amid a forest of neon lights with Under the Mistletoe, and Kelly Clarkson channeling the big-band era with a swinging rendition of Mr. Know It All. Several artists delivered stripped-down performances: The Band Perry crooned an emotional If I Die Young, a subdued Katy Perry accompanied herself on guitar for The One That Got Away and a platinum-blonde Chris Brown simply sang All Back before being joined bya troop of helmet-clad backup dancers for a flashy interpretation of Say It With Me. Jennifer Lopez performed essentially a live version of the car commercial starring the American Idol judge set to her groove Papi complete with a revolving car onstage before launching into her dance hit On the Floor. She was joined by rapper Pitbull, who later returned to the stage for the sexually charged Rain Over Me with Marc Anthony. I want to thank God because its been a really amazing year in so many ways, said Lopez, who announced earlier this year with Anthony that they were ending their seven-year marriage, after winning the favorite Latin music artist award. Its been up and down and just exciting and overwhelming. Swift unstoppable at American Music Awards

DearAbby: I’m a freshman in college and have the sweetest boyfriend in the world. We’ve always been close and trusted each other, never pushing the other too far. I always thought it was innocent and safe. Last weekend, though, things got a little heavy between us. We stopped before anything happened, but I felt dirty afterward. As I thought about it, I realized that, to me, it had seemed OK that our relationship was starting to take a more intimate turn. Is it wrong for me to think this way? I don’t know how to bring up the “sex talk” with him without seeming desperate or like I’m rushing things. What should I do? — Needs To Know in Virginia DearNeeds ToKnow: You and your boyfriend are normal, healthy young adults. If this is the first time you and a young man have gotten “a little heavy,” then it’s not surprising that you felt conflicted, depending upon how you were raised to think about premarital relations. However, because you have now progressed to the point of physical intimacy, it is important that you and your boyfriend talk about last weekend and what may happen in the future. Share your feelings and ask how HE feels about what happened and what he would like to happen going forward. That’s not desperate or rushing things — that is communication. True intimacy involves the mutual sharing of thoughts and feelings in a relationship. DearAbby: Afew weeks ago, my wife returned from a business meeting out of town. After unpacking, she took a bath. I happened into the bathroom just as she finished drying off. When she saw me, she grabbed a towel and held it over her shoulder and breast, but not before I spotted a hickey and bruise on her chest. When I asked her about the hickey, she said she had no idea what had caused it. After that, she refused to discuss the matter. The hickey faded and disappeared after two or three weeks. Yesterday she agreed to take a polygraph test, but how do we go about arranging one? Your thoughts? — Troubled Husband in Texas DearTroubled Husband: If your marriage is on such thin ice that you need a lie detector test to determine if your wife is telling the truth, you may need the services of a family law specialist. You asked my opinion, and here it is: From my perspective, you and your wife could benefit more from some truth sessions with a marriage counselor than with a polygraph examiner. However, one way to find a polygraph examiner would be to Google “polygraph examiners in Texas.” Another would be to consult an attorney about a referral. And now, Dear Readers, allow me to again share the traditional Thanksgiving Prayer that was penned by my dear mother, Pauline Phillips. No Thanksgiving would be complete for me without it: Oh, Heavenly Father, We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry. We thank Thee for health and remember the sick. We thank Thee for freedom and remember the enslaved. May these remembrances stir us to service, That Thy gifts to us may be used for others. Amen. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, everyone! — Love, Abby Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Oh well, you have to be known for something. I guess this is what happens when you are the oldest. Granny started telling me to be “saving.” She had lived through the great depression, World War II and had been widowed at age 29 with two children. My mother was eight years old and her brother was six when their father died. Granny had three mouths to feed. Granny told me this one thing that I think can help you with menu planning. She said, “Anytime you throw food into the trash from the refrigerator you have thrown money in the garbage can.” Think about dropping dollar bills down the disposal. We would never do that, yet each week we clean out our refrigerators and toss leftovers into the trash. Now don’t take this to the extremes the way I did. I subconsciously decided that in order to not throw food in the trash we could just eat out. You may not have leftovers in your refrigerator but they could be collecting on your backside. Eating out gives us a license to overeat because we paid good money for that food. Imagine that. We already have this way of thinking in our brains; we j ust need to adjust that to what we have in our refrigerators, pantries and freezers. In our “All-or-Nothing” way of thinking, don’t go to the other extreme by not cleaning out the refrigerator. My husband broke me of that one day when I looked up and said what are you eating?He said, “Beans.” I started screaming in horror, “You can’t eat those they have been in there a month.” Then he said, with a smirk on his face, “If it is in the refrigerator it’s fair game.” I almost gagged. Needless to say he didn’t drop dead. I am not telling you this to make you feel guilty. We have all done it. My reasons are to get your attention to what is happening in our homes because our perfectionism tells us we don’t have time. We have been told all our lives that we were lazy or stupid or both. We aren’t. We are smart creative fun-loving people who have been put down because our brains work just a little differently than the folks who raised us. Just like we had to practice our habits to establish them, we can take the same baby steps to learn how to plan what to eat and eat what we have planned. I like to plan for leftovers while I am making my menus out for next week. Wednesday is my soup day. I take those small amounts of things leftover to build my soup: Green beans, roast, potatoes, carrots and gravy. Add to that a can of crushed tomatoes or Rotel for spice and some more veggies and dinner is served. This may be the last day you ever have to toss food into the trash. We have a plan. When I think back I have never made a soup from scratch, it has always been from leftovers. Today I am making potato soup because I had some leftover mashed potatoes. I made extra so that I would have them left over. This is the fourth meal they have been used in: mashed potatoes with chicken dinner, added cheese and put them in individual casserole dishes with pork chops, cut a block and wrapped my meatloaf around them yesterday and today is potato soup. We can be creative when we make it a game. Our game is to see what we can do with our leftovers. This also saves us time because we have a plan for the food that is precooked. Our own fast food. First baby step: On Wednesday, let’s clean out your refrigerator. It is Soup Day — write in on the calendar. Second baby step: Make a list of your family’s favorite soups. Here is ours: chili, beef stew, vegetable, split pea, potato, chicken noodle and broccoli cheese. I am sure you can come up with others.Write your soups on your calendar on Wednesday. Third baby step: Plan your menus for next week around what leftovers you want in your refrigerator next Wednesday for your Soup Night. See how simple this is? If you want a big pot of chili, make a pot of red beans and rice. Leftover red beans become the foundation to your chili. If you want broccoli cheese soup, then buy and extra stalk of broccoli and steam it with another meal. Chicken noodle soup could be roast chicken and make the broth from the leftover carcass. Split pea starts with leftover ham. Beef stew start with a big beef roast, potatoes, carrots and gravy. And the veggie soup is all the odds and ends that didn’t work with the other soups. My Granny would always keep a container in the freezer for those little smidges of corn, green beans, rice or anything else that isn’t enough by itself. I love this. You can do it, too. All it takes is starting with your Soup of the Week. Instead of making do, you plan for it.
