Tom Scanner, media specialist with the Center for Disease Control, told the News-Sun Tuesday morning that each flu season is unique, which means they are impossible to predict. There is not a lot of activity right now, he said, but it could pick up in the coming weeks and months. He said there was good news in that it appears we have a good match (in vaccine and the flu strains were seeing. Meredith Lutz, director of infection control for Florida Hospital Heartland Division, was able to be more specific. There are 26 states that are reporting sporadic activity, she said. Florida is one of those states. She added that the Florida H ospitals in Highlands County have not yet had any confirmed cases. Lutz echoed the CDCs appraisal of the flu strains seen so far matching those covered by this years vaccine. She warned, however, that a fourth strain has shown up in the Midwest with three cases reported in Iowa. So far, she said the cases have been fairly mild. is the season ... flu season, that is Light activity so far, so theres still time to get vaccinated By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK With only o ne difference, the employment agreements signed on Nov. 22 by Maria Sutherland,a dministrative services director, and John King, public s afety director, are identical.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING More than 100 pieces of artwork will deck the halls at the Lakeshore Mall this weekend as part of the Heartland Cultural Alliance Art & Music Fest. Held inside the mall, the seasonal festival will feature music, art and jewelry from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is a win-win for everyone. The artists, the Alliance, the mall and those seeking that unique gift, said Fred Leavitt, president of the Heartland Cultural Alliance and organizer for the event. Drawing artists from the Caladium Arts and Craft Group, the Highlands Art League, Lake Placid Art League, the Tanglewood Fine Art League and The Artists Group, the display will feature a wide range of local artists who wish to offer that unique Christmas present. e are fortunate to have James Hahn this year, as well as some talented local artists. This is all about mixing art, culture and business and creating new opportunities for Highlands County Leavitt said. Hahn, the inventor of the Cabbage Patch Kids, has a gallery in Lake Wales and Juno Beach, but is looking to open one in Sebring, according to Leavitt. He told us he likes the energy out there and the work we have done with promoting artists. This is the kind of potential these events have. They draw not only visitors but encourage commerce as well, Leavitt said. Along with the art for sale, Leavitt said the event will have music and other cultural experiences, all free to the public. e have three days of music, local authors who will sign books, wood carvings and sculptures.

C M Y K B y SAMANTHAGHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comA brand new program for students in Highlands County is gearing up for au nique event. The Youth Leadership H ighlands Program is funded by the Mason G. Smoak Foundation and is designed to help high school studentsl earn more about the county a s well as themselves throughout the course of a year. The program accepts stud ents at the beginning of the academic year. Students must apply through theirs chools. Following the a pplication submission, a s election committee goes through the applicants and selects who they feel willb enefit most from the prog ram. Students with little to no previous leadership opportunities were selected for Class One of the inaugu-r al program. The main goal behind the program is to create new leaders and allow students tom ake a difference in the c ommunity by giving back. Program Executive Director Micah Scanga is newly appointed to the position and ready to get started. Scanga, a former Hillsborough County resident, recently relocated to Highlands County for thep osition and is fired up about the program and the students. e have 17 kids. Its a g reat amount; its not too many and its just maneuverable enough to get each student great opportunities, said Scanga. Each of the 17 sophomores is given the opportunity to learn about nearly a dozen social service programs offered within Highlands County. The students come from all three high schools and work together to learn leadership skills during the program. The first service day, held in late October, incorporated social services within the c ommunity. Students got the opportunity to visit placesa round Highlands County and volunteer at each of t hem. I really feel as if the service day left a deep impact with some of them. I know it did. It made a differ-e nce with them, said Scanga. N ext up for Class One of the Youth Leadership Highlands program is a crashc ourse in economic development, tourism and the arts on F riday. The kids will be able to see the many different busin esses and tourism places that the county has to offer, and believe me there are al ot. We had a difficult time narrowing it down to certain p laces for them, Scanga said. The students will visit the Sebring Regional Airport, businesses along CommerceA venue as well as the Sebring International Raceway. What we try to do is incorporate business leaders speaking as well as hands-on experience during the process. During the first service day, the students spent time at the New Testament Mission and served meals to the homeless. Its about giving them opportunities and the things they need to promote leadership, said Scanga. The program targets sophomores for a specific reason. The 10th graders are a perfect position during their academic careers so that they are able to use the e xperience and lessons learned during the programt o propel themselves into further leadership opportunit ies. The should think as they go through this process How are we, as citizens of Highlands County, givingb ack to this community? We hope that the experience w ill enable them to serve even after they have left the program, Scanga said. T he Youth Leadership Highlands program is a new o ne, but Scanga is confident that the program will develop strong servants of thec ommunity. This is a great community. I really mean that. Imh appy to be here and this program is excellent and I a m excited to be a part of it, Scanga said. The next service day will be held in late January. The students will focus on agri-c ulture and environment during this event day. The Class One Youth Leadership Highlands students are: Taylor Brown,M ason Jahna, Kenny, McGrath, and Sherida Z eeuw of Avon Park High School; Melissa Barajas, Stephanie Bennett, Allison Burnett, Laura Candeletta, Laine Daum, Jessie Sandersa nd Luci Torres of Lake Placid High School and Marissa Andujar, Dillon Cloud, Raymond Drevermann, Elton Gargano,a nd Scout Royce of Sebring High School.

C M Y K Tragic sign of holidaysEditor: As we approach the holiday season, please take note that corporate America has declared that the reason for thes eason is no longer the reason for the season. T hey feel that Christ is no longer a part of Christmas. Not one nativity scene or indication that there was evera Special Babe born in Bethlehem 2000 years ago is available in box stores. Iti s called being politically correct. How tragic. Future generations wont even know what Christmas is and why we celebrate Christmas. Happy holidays to you all, while we still remem-b er. John L. Thomas Lake PlacidPlenty to be thankful forEditor: Today is a day to give thanks for so many things in our lives. Atime to feel blessed to spend time with our family and friends. Give thanks for those who have offered support and encouragement. We pray for continuing encouragement and boost of support as we bring positive change to someones life. Be thankful of those who instilled in us the values to achieve The American Dream. Life is about choices; lets pray for direction to make the right choices and campaign to bring positive change. Lets pray for the less fortunate people who are homeless or hungry today. Reach out and help someone. Looking to help someone will always give you a sense of balance. Lets pray for our troops, the sacrifices they and their families make so we are free to celebrate this wonderful holiday. Lets never, never forget Our troops make a difference in our country. Its called freedom and because of our freedom, We Have a Choice. Patricia Austin Avon Park BouquetsThanks for the memoriesEditor: I was a resident in Highlands County for 21 years. During that time, I wore many hats wife, mother, teacher, daughter and caregiver for my mother. I feel blessed to have had those experiences in a place where most people displayed family and Christian values. My husband, Jim Lyons, and I have moved to Jacksonville to be nearer to our family. The logistics of our move progressed very quickly and we were not able to see a lot of very nice people one more time. I am taking this opportunity to say life was good because of you and I ama better person for knowing you. To quote a famous phrase, Thanks for the memories and God bless you. MaryLou Mansfield Atlantic BeachHighlands Art League wraps up another festivalEditor: We at Highlands Art League are wrapping things up after another successful Fine Arts and Crafts Festival. Its hard to believe this was our 45th year. Support from generous local individuals and businesses is what has made this celebration of art and culture possible year after year, so we would like to send out a big thank you to all of our sponsors. The Community Redevelopment Agency was our title sponsor this year, providing the cash prizes for the artists awards. Alan Jay continued his tradition of sponsoring the Childrens Tent, and Progress Energy sponsored Childrens Street. Anumber of business contributed their services Signs Now printed all of our banners, Taylor Rental donated a tent, Highlands Today gave us a number of print ads in the days preceding the festival as well as a wonderful two-page insert, Brewsters provided coffee for the artists and volunteers the morning of the festival, and Frames and Images wrapped the prints we give each of our sponsors as a way of saying thanks. The official festival art from which these prints were made was also donated to us by the very talented Max Gooding. Many others helped us out financially. We would like to thank Heartland National Bank, South Florida Community College, Florida Hospital, LarsonAllen, V& WFarms, Blackman Properties, Highlands Independent Bank, Glades Electric Cooperative, Polston Engineering, Dr. David E. Willey, Kahn Citrus Management, and Heartland Real Estate Corporation for their contributions. Anew level of sponsorship was also introduced this year, the Friends of the Festival. At $100, it was designed as a way for those who may not be able to commit to a higher level of sponsorship but still wanted to help out. So thank you also to our friends First Insurance of Lake Placid, Highlands Medical Group, Joe L. Davis, Marmer Construction, Wauchula State Bank, Highlands Regional Medical Center, and Dorry Christy Interior Design, A.S.I.D. And once again, thank you to everyone who makes this event possible. Jeri Wohl President Highlands Art League Tough financial times have led to local cuts in recreational spending and less support for service agencies hurt-i ng children, the elderly and the handicapped. W hich is why the NewsSun is so disappointed in the county commission and itss taff regarding the purchase of property for the supervisor o f elections office. Please, we dont want defensive quibbling or lame excuses. The last thing we want to hear is, whats donei s done. Lets put aside the issue of m oney for just a moment and focus on what this does to Supervisor of Elections JoeC ampbell and his staff as they prepare for the import ant 2012 presidential elections with an early presidential preferential primarya nd newly redrawn district lines, no less. Instead of being ahead of t he curve and in a large enough space, Campbell will b e having to make do yet again. We have spoken to him, and must admit he remains confident the election will come off without a hitch, even if his office stays where it is until afterN ovember 2012. In fact, Campbell remains calmly p hilosophical about the entire situation. On the other hand, given t hat the electionsoffice has needed more space since 2 006, and the search for it began on former county administrator Carl Cools watch and has now dragged on through two other countya dministrators, the News-Sun isnt so understanding. W orking for any government right now is a thankless task, we know that and haves aid so often. We do have sympathy and admiration for p eople in the public sector. But, please, something this knuckle-headed has to bea ddressed. As we quoted Ramon Gavarette in Sundays edit ion, The envelope of the building is not airtight or w eather proof. You can go into the building and see light through orifices throughout t he building. The space is designed as mini-warehouses, not offices. From the very beginning it was clear the space wouldn eed a significant redesign. Which brings us to the money having paid more than $1.2 million for readyto-move-in space (which isnt so ready) that may endu p costing more than $2.1 million, well, its nothing s hort of infuriating. The county commission can blame its staff from nowt o kingdom come, but that doesnt change the fact the u ltimate responsibility belongs to the commissioners. We have, for example, accompanied too manys chool board tours of building sites and seen too many m unicipalities pour over blueprints to accept for a second that the commission is ab amboozled, innocent party in all this. T oo many people are going hungry, losing their homes and their jobs, for the countyc ommission to accept this mistake as business as usual. For once, there have to be c onsequences. At the least there should be a n investigation to find out what went so wrong. That doesnt necessarily mean shenanigans were involved, it may just be that projectsn eed to be better tracked. B ut whatever the case, enough is enough. We can no longer simply bungle along. We must have competent,e fficient and trustworthy g overnments. In fact, we d emand them. Perhaps it is time for the commissioners up for re-election to apologize for this mess and retire.

Tax revenues continue to fall while state and federal grants become more competitive F our top notch news guys died this fall. Theiri ndividual styles of journalism c ould not have been more different, and yet they were alike in their dedication tok eeping audiences informed and e ntertained. They touched us all, but for me each had a specialc onnection. Tom Wicker was more t han a great reporter, he was a progressive thinker who dared tread close tot he line that separates impartial journalism from outright activism at a t ime when it was far less common than it is today. D uring his three-decade career at The New York Times that ended in 1991, he was a powerful voice in civil rights and anti-warm ovements, speaking from a perch that gave him clout with presidents as well as millions of Americans. In 1971, after writing about unacceptable prison conditions nationwide,W icker found himself part of the story at Attica prison i n upstate New York. He agreed to join a negotiating team during an uprising by inmates, and wound up watching in horror as 29p risoners and 10 hostages died in an assault by state troopers and guards. Wicker wrote ATime to Die about his experi-e nce, and many believe it was the best of his 20 books. Ten years later it was made into a movie by ABC. The Times assigned me to interview Wicker and the filmmakers to find out why the movie was relatively soft while the book was so hard-hitting. Wicker explained that, in print, I was able to (present) a number of things involving the problems of criminal justice in America, racism and violence in America. Film, he told me, doesnt work very well that way. Tom Wicker was a print guy all right, at a time when that was the most important thing a journalist could be. Andy Rooney not only entertained us, he made us think not about big, complicated matters but about little things that knit to form our lives. Curmudgeon was a word several writers used to describe him. Having been his neighbor in Connecticut I can confirm that he was as grouchy at the hardware store as he was on Minutes. What intrigued me most about Rooney was his abili ty to notice things in life that many of us tendt o overlook, and his relentless purs uit of societys peccadilloes. Andy Rooney was the type of journalist who had thec anny ability to make us think w hile also making us smile. Hal Bruno was not a h ousehold name, but as chief of political coverage f or ABC News, where I worked for five years, he helped develop the type of a nalysis and numberscrunching that we now take for granted. H e moderated several notable debates, including t he vice presidential confrontation between Al Gore and Dan Quayle. Unlike todays televised debates in which moderators increas-i ngly seek to egg on candidates with gotcha questions, Hal Bruno was a master of the low-key, studious approach aimed at eliciting great answers rather than just good TV. B il Keanes work appeared in the comic sect ion, but it managed to trigger our emotions as much as anything on the front page. The Family Circus, a simple panelw ith parents and kids who havent aged a bit since its debut in 1959, remains a staple in over 1,500 newspapers. I s schmaltzy yet real, as when little Jeffy asks his mother, Can I wear my short-sleeve pants? Or when Billy exclaims, s cooking my favorite dinner. Its called leftovers. I never met Bil Keane, but often felt he was part of my family. In the sixties he drew a comic panel called Channel Chuckles, for which his favorite subject seemed to be my fathers program, Candid Camera. As always, the humor was pointed, yet kind. Bil Keanes real-life son, Jeff, has been helping with Family Circus for some time, so the institution will continue a passing of the media torch with which Im familiar. Taken together, the work of these four men provides a good picture of what great journalism can be, regardless of the form it takes or the era in which it is practiced.

C M Y K Lutz emphatically recommended getting vaccinated. More than one strain of flu is active every season, so its better to be protected against as many as possible especially because a person may be sick for 24 hours before showing symptoms, which puts people at risk. s very, very early in the season, Lutz said. We havent seen a lot yet, but thats typically how it goes. It can start in different parts of the country (and spread from there). At this time there are no hot spots anywhere. It is not too late to be vaccinated and still have the benefit. The flu season typically starts in October or November and runs through April or even May. National Influenza Week is coming up Dec. 4-10. Lutz said the medical community will be making an all-out effort to improve vaccination rates. The goal is to have 90 percent of Americans getting vaccinated every year by the year 2020. Individuals should check with their doctors, especially high-risk groups, like those allergic to eggs, those who have had Guillain-Barre disease or those who have had a severe reaction in the past. If one is mildly ill or has a fever, its best to wait until well. Ten circumstances are listed under which neither indi-v idual would be entitled to severance pay: Dishonesty with respect to the business and operation of the city; violation of the citys drugp olicy; refusal to cooperate in a legal investigation i nvolving any aspect of the business or operation of thec ity conducted by, or at the direction of, the City Council; a conviction on felony criminal charges; a conviction on a a misde-m eanor in which the charges are related in any way to their job or city business; causing the city to be found in violation of law throughg ross neglect or willful misconduct; insubordination; knowing and willful violation of the citys charter, ordinances or policies; any reason for termination under the citys personnel policies; or any just cause. With the agreement, Sutherland and King now each earn a base salary of $65,000. Their benefits include city-funded health and life insurance premiums, disability insurance at cost and paid vision and dental insurance for themselves, although not their family members. King and Sutherland will each receive 200 hours of paid leave a year. Unused leave may be carried over (or paid out on separation) up to 500 hours. Each of them will receive 120 hours of sick leave per year, which may also be carried forward to a maximum of 300 hours. Sick leave will be deposite d into a leave accrual register. With four weeks of notice b efore separating from the city, King or Sutherland willb e entitled to a 100 percent payout of remaining accrued s ick leave only 50 percent, however, without the four-w eek notice. Both may be given the use o f a city car for official business only. K ing and Sutherland are expected to cooperate with the city and its officials in the event of any actual or threat-e ned litigation or administrative proceedings against the c ity, and to not cooperate or assist any person or party making claims against the city without express written permission. N either director shall di sc lose any confidential information involving the busin ess of the city to any person or entity without written perm ission, unless required to do so by law. Sutherland or King m a y resign at any time, but the c ity will have no further obligations, and the severance package is waived. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, November 30, 2011Page 5A DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; hospice (cornerstone), obit pg; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 3 3 4 4 8 8 8 8 U NIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 11/30/11; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 4 4 4 4 4 4 3 3 G ib Mattson will be calling on Thursday followed on Dec. 8 by a Pajama Party Dance with Nelson Wakeman and Dec. 15 with the Christmas Dance and S am Dunn.

Most of the participants were glad we decided to play its afe, Greenslade said. I just hate that we had to put off the parade. The decision as to when and how to reschedule is up to the board,a nd when we know for sure, we will let everyone know via radio, e-mail and phone calls, Greenslade said. The parade, which is usually held on the first Monday a fter Thanksgiving, draws over 100 participating floats and groups as well as close to 4 ,000 visitors into the downtown area. We are sorry we had to do it, but we had a lot of folks telling us they had already d ecided not to participate because of the weather. e are looking into rescheduling the parade, but the board will make thatd ecision. We have to work around the other parades and events around this time of year, Greenslade said.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It may have been a fish that saved Pittsburgh, but it's some loose change in the form of two little ladies from the S teel City that are propelling the turnaround of Lake Placid girls basketball, as evidenced by Monday's 38-31 win over county rival Sebring the first such win in five years, according to unofficial recollections. Regardless of recollections, however, the Coynes, coach Jackie and point guard Alex, have become a driving force in the rejuvenation of basketball for the Lady Dragons. From the depth on the bench to the lively halftime show, it was a whole new ballgame in the Dragons Lair Monday night. Lake Placid roared out to a 12-3 lead in the first quarter, which could have been more, given the 2-for-8 mark from the free-throw line. R aven Gobourne split a pair to start the scoring, though Lady Streak Allie Mann drained a three-pointer t o put Sebring up 3-1. But it was all Dragons from t here, with Alex Coyne showi ng her ability with a drive for a left-handed lay-up, Jamacia Gayle scoring twice inside, Bria Wilson hitting a free throw and a Arnetia Gobourne steal and score. The period finished with Coyne driving and delivering a slick dish to Shaquavia Gayle for an easy lay-in. Kunshe Wilson then got the second quarter rolling with a score on the break, though Jazmin House answered with a put-back. Jamacia Gayle scored again inside and Coyne hit one-of-two at the line for a 1 7-5 margin. Khamira Ancrum, however, converted a three-point play, and after another split at the free-throw line from Coyne, Mann drilled another trey to cut it to 18-11. Consecutive trips to the charity stripe for the Dragons netted just one point and April Wallace hit a short jumper in the lane to make it 19-13. ADragon hoop was answered with a Mann jumper, but Coyne again drove in from the left to close the half with a 23-15 lead. They were using a matchup zone which confused the girls a bit, Sebring head coach Mike Lee said. Sometimes it would look like man-to-man and then it would drop back into a zonea nd we really couldnt get many good looks. While Sebring headed to the locker room, the Lady D ragons stayed out and, along with coach Coyne, lead a group of youngsters t hrough ball handling drills to music for the entertainment of the crowd. Fresh from the brainstorming during the break, the Blue Streak defense kicked in during the third period, only allowing two Lake Placid buckets, both on Coyne drives. They scored just six themselves, though, with Ancrum getting inside, House and Jamiese Wiley each netting a free throw and Taryn OBannon scoring on a baseline jumper. Coyne launched a last-second three that just rimmed out, leaving things interesting with just a 27-21 Lake Placid lead heading into the final eight minutes. And the Streaks would make it even more interesting with Wallace scoring twice and House putting one in. Coyne hit a three in the midst of the Sebring flurry, making it 30-27. But the next six possessions wound up in free-throw attempts, with Wilson and Arnetia Gobourne combining for 4-of-4 and Raveen Gobourne splitting a pair fort he Dragons. Sebring, meanwhile, hit just one of their six attempts and the lead was back up to 35-28. The Streaks had one more surge left in them, with a Rondaja Williams follow and a Shalontay Rose free throw, b ut Raveen Gobourne converted a three-point play in the waning seconds to provide for the final margin. They are a very good team, which is good, its nice t o have the competition in the county, Lee said. They t ook us out of our game and for me, that was disappointing. The hustle was there, the girls battled and we still had our chances near the end, but we didnt play as well as Id like. For the Dragons, after some down seasons, the level of play as well as the atmosphere showed a definitive boost. Im new here, but I knew this was a big rivalry, coach Coyne said. I could see some nervousness in their faces, but we try to teach to h ave a winning mentality. And tonight I saw they were ready to go. They lost the jitters, stuck to our game plan and did a nice job. Getting that big lead right off the bat was a key, she continued. It gave them to confidence to know that, hey we can play with them. Play with them, Lake Placid more than did, and has served notice that they will be a team to be reckoned with both in county and district competition. T he Dragons looked to keep things rolling Tuesday night, with a visit from Frostproof, while Sebring took on another county rival, Avon Park. See Fridays News-Sun for recaps of the contests. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Perhaps in too charitable a mood after the Thanksgiving holiday, Sebring gave away Saturdays matinee match-up with visiting Naples, falling on a buzzer-beating putback, 54-53. It was a game the Streaks lead throughout, save for a brief moment just before halftime. After a 16-10 edge in the opening period, Sebring had built it to 20 10 on a spin in the lane from Matt Taylor and a Jared Cannon putback. But Troy Thomas and Heber Clermont hit back-toback threes, with Clermont then splitting two freethrows and Thomas scoring on a baby hook in the lane to make it 20-19. The Golden Eagles then took their first lead on another Clermont three, but a Taylor follow just before the half tied it at 22-22. Sebring started the third with a Josh Austin drive along the baseline and a three and fast-break drive from Decaris Jones to up it to 2922, but Naples came right back on a Sean Wilson three,a Wesley Walker follow and a pair of free throws from 6foot-7 center Mark Karr, to tie it up again. It continued like that, with the Streaks breaking out and the Eagles flying back in. It was 41-41 after three, but Sebring looked like they may lock it away in the fourth, building a 51-43 lead with 2:30 to play. But Karr and Walker both knocked one down from downtown and after Isaac Tiburcio intercepted a pass, Thomas took it in for the layup. The Streaks soon had their chances at the free throw line, getting to the stripe for three one-and-ones, but missed the key first one each time. Two of those came after another Thomas drive, and when his last-ditch effort to score caromed off, it seemed Sebring might have lucked out in this one. But Karr was right there to collect and put it back for the game winner. It was definitely better than Tuesday night, head coach Princeton Harris said afterward, referring to his teams lopsided loss at Avon Park. As I just told the guys, Im disappointed in how we finished, but am glad with the way they played most of the game. It was the basics, missed free throws and turnovers at the end, he continued. ere still working and looking ahead, I kind of see where we are at, and if were 5-5 when we get towards Christmas, I think well be all right. The Blue Streaks continued their work Tuesday at Hardee.

The person told The Associated Press that Khan, who was born in Pakistan in 1950 and moved to the United States when he was 16, and Smiths deal is not expected to move the team. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because no public announcement has been made regarding the sale of the team. The Jaguars have scheduled a noon press conference during which they are expected to discuss all the leadership changes, which includes signing general manager Gene Smith to a new threeyear deal and Mondays firing of head coach Jack Del Rio. Del Rios job security had been tenuous since owner Wayne Weaver said the coach needed to make the playoffs to secure a 10th season in Jacksonville. The Jaguars were essentially eliminated with Sundays 20-13 loss to Houston. Del Rio leaves with a 6973 record, including 1-2 in two playoffs appearances. The Jaguars didnt win the AFC South in any of his nine seasons. Weaver considered firing Del Rio after last season, but kept him partly because of the uncertainty surrounding the NFLlockout.

It was a piece of pink paper on which he promised that he wont overdo it, that he wont work too hard, that hell take care of himself thist ime. This is a contract that my kids made me sign before I was allowed to sign a real contract, he said. Its tougher than any other contract Ive signed in my life. With that out of the way, Meyer was free to sign a sixy ear deal that pays him around $4.4 million a year, not counting bonuses and incentives. Awinner of two national championships during his glittering six-year tenure at Florida, hell be expected to bring some luster back to a football program that has been tainted by 12 months of NCAAviolations, suspensions and a 6-6 record. M eyer resigned as Gators coach after last season, citing health concerns and a desire to spend more time with hisf amily. year ago in my mind I w as convinced I was done coaching, the 47-year-old M eyer said. Now hes convinced he can b alance a healthy life and a high-pressure job. I had a health scare a couple of years ago that made me sit back, reflect, Meyer said of heart and stress problems. I didnt feel right. But I feel fantastic now He also yearned to be back on the sideline at the Horseshoe. If not for the coaching position at Ohio State, I would not have coached this year, said Meyer, who grew up in Ashtabula, Ohio, about 200 miles from campus. Interim coach Luke Fickell, who took over when Jim Tressel was forced out for breaking NCAArules, will coach the Buckeyes in their bowl game. Meyer will keep him on as an assistant but declined to say in what capacity. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said his first conversation with Meyer about the coaching job was by phone on Nov. 20. The two met face-to-face three days later. Things moved quickly from there. ere blessed to have him as our football coach, said Smith, who said it was luck that he was able to find a candidate with such a sterling resume. Meyer spent six years at Florida, winning national titles in 2006 and 2008. H e spent his year away from coaching working as a college football analyst for ESPN and watching his two daughters play volleyball for their college teams. Meyer met with the team on Monday before the news conference and said he was impressed with the players enthusiasm. Meyer takes over a program that could face addi-t ional NCAAsanctions and was crippled by Tressels forced resignation. The Buckeyes completed t heir only season under Fickell with a 40-34 loss to M ichigan on Saturday that snapped a seven-game winn ing streak against their rivals. T ressel was forced out for knowing but not telling his superiors that Buckeyes players likely broke NCAArules by taking cash and free or discounted tattoos from the subject of a federal drug-trafficking investigation. In 10 seasons as a head coach two at Bowling Green, two at Utah and six at Florida Meyer has a 10423 record. His teams are 7-1 in bowl games, including the Gators 41-14 victory over unbeaten and top-ranked Ohio State in the 2007 Bowl Championship Series title game. Meyer initially denied all the talk about succeeding Tressel, saying he wasnt interested in leaving ESPN. He enjoyed what he was doing, but I think he also had the bug to start coaching again, ESPN broadcast partner and former Ohio State linebacker Chris Spielman said. This was just an opportunity that he couldnt pass up. Ohio States .500 record this season marked the most losses at Ohio State since John Coopers 1999 team also went 6-6 overall and 3-5 in the Big Ten. The Buckeyes already lost their string of six Big Ten titles when the school was forced to vacate the 2010 season for the NCAAviolations. The school also has selfimposed two years of NCAA probation and offered to return $339,000 in bowl revenue from 2010 and to forfeit five scholarships over the next three seasons. Ohio State is awaiting final word from the NCAAs committee on infractions. The committee tagged Ohio State with a failure to monitor label second only to a lack of institutionalc ontrol on the list of most egregious charges against a university. The school could still be h it with a bowl ban, a loss of more scholarships, or other penalties. O hio State President Gordon Gee was at V anderbilt when Meyer was in the Southeastern C onference with Florida. I always viewed him the way many other coaches referred to him as being a goody two-shoes, Gee said in a phone interview. He was called that because he always tried to do things right, and he was upset if others didnt try to do it right. I have always admired him. But Meyers teams have not always been so wellbehaved. The Gators had 30 arrests involving 27 players during Meyers six seasons. In his second season with the Gators, No. 2-ranked Florida beat unbeaten Ohio State, coached by Tressel, 41-14, to win his first national title. Two years later, Florida won another national title, beating Oklahoma 24-14 behind Tim Tebow. Meyer said hes not worried about the NCAAhammering Ohio State, possibly tacking on a bowl game ban a year from now. At the end of the day I asked the same question: Is there anything behind Door No. 2? 3? 4? he said. I feel very confident and have great trust that theres not.

N otice the order this is done: taking care of you first is essential to beinga ble to take care of your family. No one likes a mart yr in a bathrobe with an ugly attitude! Youve heard me talk a bout the incredible value of the family dinner table for years now. You know t his is my passion and mission, to see families back at t he dinner table enjoying one another and reconnecting on a daily basis as much as possible. But I want to add some more beads to this necklace to help you grasp how much is riding on this simple piece of family furniture: CASAs 1998 Teen Survey found that teens that eat dinner with their parentst wice a week or less were four times more likely to s moke cigarettes, three times more likely to smoke marijuana and nearly twice as likely to drink as those who ate dinner with theirp arents six or seven times a week. CASAs 1999 Teen Survey found that teens from families that almostn ever eat dinner together were 72 percent likelier than the average teen to use illegal drugs, cigarettes and alcohol, while those from families that almost always eat dinner together were 31 percent less likely than the average teen to engage in these activities. Research by other organizations has shown that teens who frequently eat family dinners with their parents are less likely than other teens to have sex at young ages, get into fights or be suspended from school, and are at lower risk for thoughts of suicide. Frequent family dining is a lso correlated with doing well in school and developi ng healthy eating habits. This pattern holds true regardless of a teens sex, family structure, and family socioeconomic level. C ASAis the National Center on Addiction and S ubstance Abuse at Columbia University. CASAis primarily a thinkt ank dedicated to finding out how to prevent drug a nd alcohol abuse among children. Their findings prompted family day andt he above mentioned statistics. They offer way more information on their webs ite than I have given. Google CASAto get their c urrent information. At tables all across America, people traditionally gather together to give thanks on Thanksgiving.T his is the quintessential picture of the dinner table. I would like to remind you however, that the dinner table is not just a gathering place for holidays. I invite you to take this i nformation to heart. Not to make you feel guilty. Not to p romote my book or website. But to give you some important food for thought to help you understand that underneath everything thaty ou do, someone is watching you, emulating you and wanting more than ever, to connect with you. Your family dinner table is thes tarting place for making this happen. Dont underestimate the power of dinner.

The power of dinner Dinner Diva Leanne Ely DearAbby : I married Raymond in 2004. I met his son, Bill, a year before the wedding and have been in a relationship with him ever since. (Hesm arried to one of my friends and has a child with her.) Raymond supports me financially and provides all the necessities house, car, food, clothes, etc. without my having to work. But Bill supports me emotionally, and theres more of a connection. I have learned that marriages dissolve for one of two reasons: money or sex. The money is there, but Raymond and I havent been romantic in more than a year. Am I walking into a ring of fire by keeping the relationship with Bill? Ray says he loves me and cares about me, but only when I ask how he feels about me. With Bill, I dont have to ask he says it. In AQuandry DearIn AQuandry: May I mention a third reason that marriages break up? Its when one spouse discovers that the other has been cheating. If your marriage to Raymond, who has endowed you with all the worldly goods he can, is of any importance to you, tell him that although youre living in style, all of your needs are not being met. Give him a chance to fulfill the rest of them. It doesnt take a clairvoyant to predict that if you dont value what youve got, you will lose it. DearAbby: It has been a difficult year.T he brother of one of my dear friends had a massive stroke and she is now his caretaker. Another friends 15-year-old son recently committed suicide, and a third friends 23-yearold daughter is in the late stages of MS. I also have several friends who are dealing with cancer. I always feel lost about what to say or how to reach out and help. How do I respond in these situations? Hurting For My Friends DearHurting: You dont have to say anything profound in order to be supportive. The way to respond is to do for them what you would hope someone would do for you in similar circumstances. Call your friends regularly and keep them informed about whats going on. Ask how they are doing. If they need to vent, listen. If you have spare time, offer to cook them a meal, do some laundry, or give them a few hours to run errands by keeping their sick relative company. Im sure it will be appreciated. DearAbby: I am a 20-year-old mother of a 1-year-old boy who means the world to me. I was raped two months ago and recently learned that I am pregnant. I am scared to death of telling my mother. W hen my son was born, his father left for his tour of duty in Iraq and I moved in with her. She is 57 and has helped me out in every way she can since he was killed on his mission. I love my mother dearly and dont know what I would do without her, but I am at a loss about how to tell her about this pregnancy. Your advice would be appreciated. Scared To Death DearScared ToDeath: Your mother should have been told about the rape when it happened. You should have also informed the police, and received counseling and emergency contraception and medication to prevent an STD. If you havent seen an OB/GYN, schedule an appointment immediately to ensure that the baby youre carrying will be born healthy. You also need to tell your mother before your pregnancy becomes obvious, so the two of you can decide whether you can afford to raise another child or if you should place the child for adoption. Please dont wait. The longer you do, the harder the discussion will be. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
