Citizens will get their chance to ai r out issues this Thursday night when County Commissioner Don Elwell will lead a town hall-style meeting. “Approximately one year after taking office, I thought now was a perfect time to invite citizens to come in and tell us how we’re doing and wha t concerns they have,” Elwell said in a press release. Elwell said Monday that the event will start at 6 p.m. in county commission chambers at 600 S. Commerce Ave. in Sebring and run until 8 p.m. The goal of the meeting is to build a better bridge between county government and its citizens, according to Elwell, and will be held in an informal and educational atmosphere. “I want to get citizen’s concerns. We will cover some old topics and some new ones. Some issues we will be able address that night or direc t citizens to the right individuals.

Monday night was the last Avon Park Chamber Christmas Parade that Executive Director David Greenslade will organize in his official capacity. Greenslade announced his retirement in November and is taking a position as events manager at Adelaide Shores RVPark in January. “It is not any easy job,” said Greenslade who was responsible for directing close to 100 participants and floats, setting up Main Street and directing the parade in front of thousands. “But it is always worth it. t has A very good night in Avon Park News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE David Greenslade greets his granddaughter Ella McHargue after the Avon Park Christmas parade on Monday night.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING — Highlands County School District Superintendent Wally Cox was recently selected as Florida’s 2012 Superintendent of the Year. Cox was given the news Thursday at a luncheon during the Florida School Boards Association and the Florida Association of District School Superintendents held in Tampa. Cox has a resume that spans 35 years of working in the school district field, 24 of which have been served in Highlands County. Cox became superintendent of Highlands County in 2000. He served as FADSS President in 2010 and currently serves as vice president. Nominated by members of the FADSS, Cox was aware of the chance of earning the title but knew he was one of Cox selected as state Superintendent of the Year See COX, page 6A More photosPAGE3A By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — After two years of deliberations and discussion, commissioners voted on Tuesday to have county staff quickly prepare information and make a recommendation on three options for a new headquarters for the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office. The three options include building a new building on current county property, purchasing and retro-fitting the Bank of America Building in downtown Sebring and purchasing and retrofitting the Restoration Church on Sparta Road. Apreviously discussed fourth option, the SunTrust Bank building on West Center Avenue in downtown Sebring, has apparently been dropped from consideration. Commissioners and Sheriff Susan Benton quickly eliminated the building at Kenilworth Avenue that was originally purchased to house the Supervisor of Elections. “That building is just a tin shell of a building,” Benton said, stating that the property was not conducive at all as an option for the headquarters. Benton also told commissioners that she was “sad that we have spen t all this money, and this is other people’s money” to no resolution. The county has already spent millions in taxpayer money doing jus t that, Benton said. Commissioners recommended tha t 3 options for sheriffs building Benton See HCSO, page 7A

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID — Board members and friends of the Archbold Biological Station celebrated the grand opening of the just-completed Frances Archbold Hufty Learning Center and Adrian Archbold Lodge on Friday. Frances Archbold Hufty (1912-2010), longtime resident of Palm Beach, was Chairman of the Board of Archbold Expeditions (parent organization of Archbold Biological Station) for 35 years. Her late brother, Richard Archbold, an explorer and naturalist, founded Archbold Expeditions in 1936 and established Archbold Biological Station in 1941. The late Adrian Archbold, for whom the adjacent Lodge was named, was their brother and a supporter of the Station’s diverse activities. Those presiding over the event included Dr. Mary Hufty, youngest daughter of Frances Hufty, and current Chairman of the Board of Archbold Expeditions (the Station’s parent organization), and Executive Director Dr. Hilary Swain. More than 150 attendees— board members, staff, supporters, and colleagues in the science, education, and conservation community joined together with three generations of Archbold family members. Since its founding, the Station has been dedicated to long-term ecological research, education and conservation, primarily of the threatened Florida scrub habitat of the Lake Wales Ridge and adjacent central Florida. Mary Hufty pointed out in her address at the ceremony that the Station, in fact, has “one of the highest levels of endemism—unique plants and animals native to an area—in the nation.” Highlands County Commissioners Barbara Stewart, Greg Harris and Ron Handley, and Stephen Leighton, representing Congressman Tom Rooney’s Office, were among the officials attending the event. Commissioner Stewart, who also serves on the Archbold Board of Trustees, introduced guest speaker for the ceremony, photojournalist Carlton Ward. The buildings will not be fully open to the public until all the signs and exhibits are completed next year, but the Station will be hosting a series of public open house events at the new Learning Center starting this week on Thursday (9.30-11.30 a.m.) and Sunday (2-4 p.m.), and next month on Jan. 8 and Jan. 27 (both 1-3 p.m.). Archbold Biological Station unveils new facilities The Guardians of the Everglades Special Program will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. this Thursday in the SFCC University Center Auditorium, not next Thursday. The date in the press release submitted to the News-Sun was incorrect. Continued on page 5A Open houses planned Thursday and Sunday Special to the News-SunSEBRING — Fourth graders from Cracker Trail Elementary will enjoy a unique experience Monday. Scribe’s Night Out, an event sponsored by Heartland Cultural Alliance and Brewster’s Coffee House, will be dedicating a special meeting time of 6 p.m. to the students. This grade level was chosen because it is the first year that Florida students take the FCATwriting test. On a voluntary basis, Cracker Trail fourth graders submitted their work to be critiqued by two active participants of Scribe’s Night Out. From these, a designated number of students were to be invited to read publicly at Brewster’s. Twenty-two students entered. The judges had a difficult task making selections. There was so much effort and originality in each piece that all 22 students were invited to read at Brewster’s. One student is to be chosen as a featured writer for the evening. That student will receive special recognition from HCAand Scribe’s Night Out for a piece of writing that caught the judges’imaginations and sparkled just a little brighter. Scribe’s Night Out is an event for writers, published or not, that meet the second and fourth Sunday of each month at Brewster’s Coffee House in Sebring. One writer is featured for the first part of the evening, followed by an open mike session when anyone may share a piece of original writing. Because of this special elementary student event, there will be no regular gathering on Sunday, nor on Christmas. The next event will be Jan. 8, the first anniversary of Scribe’s Night Out, featuring readers from this past year. From the classroom to the coffee shop Cracker Trail students to read works at Scribes Night Out Correction GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCEƒ By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING — The Highlands County YMCA is gearing up for holiday fun for the whole community to enjoy. The inaugural Christmas at the Yevent is taking place Friday and Saturday from 5-9 p.m. The event was created by Aquatics Director Jonathan Joles with hopes of capturing a good, holiday feeling. “We’ve never had this event before, but you could compare it to the Halloween Spooktacular, only for Christmas,” said Joles. Joles said the Halloween event, which j ust had its third year, brought in approximately 1,200 people over the weekend. Joles doesn’t expect Christmas at the Yto bring in that many guests in its first year, but he is looking forward to many people enjoying the event. “Hopefully we can get around three or four hundred. That’s what we are expecting for the first year,” Joles said. The YMCAhas planned a number of activities for those looking for a little Christmas fun. Live entertainment, food, games, arts and crafts are just a few of the things scheduled for the two day event. “We have musical entertainment. Matthew Wacaster and Junior Heartland Idol winner Nala Price will be here. We possibly may have the Heartland Harmonizers, also,” Joles said. The musical entertainment will provide guests with Christmas carols and holiday songs for two evenings. Kids will find plenty to get into at the arts and crafts section. “They’ll be able to do fun art things. They can make an ornament for their Christmas tree. It’s all about building a memory. The YMCAwas founded in and still has a very religious background and we want Christmas to keep that,” Joles said. Santa and Mrs. Claus will also be present at the event and children and families will be able to pose for pictures with Santa after giving him their Christmas wish list. Stories and a fireplace also await children within the Christmas filled weekend. Admission is $2 per person. The activities, including entertainment, bounce houses, cake walk and arts and crafts are included in the admission price. Santa photos and concessions will be available at various prices. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Strong Kids Campaign. Christmas at the Y to open Friday First-time event at YMCA has plenty of fun

C M Y K As shocking to the American people then as thea ttack on the World Trade Center was to us in 2001, what happened at Pearl Harbor led directly to our nation declaring war onJ apan on Dec. 8. On Dec. 11, Germany and Italy declared war on theU nited States, and so we entered World War II. According to The History P lace web site, the Japanese launched 423 planes from a f leet of six carriers. Amix of torpedo bombers, high level bombers and Zerof ighters formed the first wave. It took off at 6 a.m. h eaded for Pearl Harbor, about 230 miles south. The wave was focused on the air fields and battleships. Asecond wave of 167 airp lanes followed, taking off at 7:12 a.m. That group was to a ttack smaller ships and the shipyards. While the Japanese flew t heir way south, Pearl Harbor was waking up to a beautiful S unday morning. Adm. Husband E. Kimmel and Army Lt. Gen. Walter C. S hort had determined no attack was imminent the ships, harbor and army instal-l ations were totally unprepared and unprotected. There were no torpedo nets set, guns were not manned and planes were parked inr ows, wing to wing, along the runways. An early radar sighting of t he approaching squadrons of enemy planes was dismissed as friendly B-17 bombersb eing ferried in. At Hickam Field, the army a ir base, 35 men were gathered having breakfast. The first assault began at 7 :53 a.m. Adirect hit on the mess hall killed every one in i t. Five battleships were sunk, including the U.S.S. Arizona lost when an almost 2,000-pound bomb penetrat-e d the forward magazine, causing catastrophic explos ions, killing 1,104 men. Eight other battleships were damaged. Three lightc ruisers, three destroyers and three smaller vessels were s unk and 188 airplanes destroyed. Thousands were killed 2 ,335 service men and 68 c ivilians; 1,178 people were w ounded. The attack ended at 9:45 a.m. It had lasted one hour a nd 52 minutes. The day before, Dec. 6, the United States had intercepted an ominous, but incomplete, m essage from Japan to its diplomatic delegation in Washington. Aalert was sent to Pearl Harbor, which because of delays, was not received until noon Hawaiian time, more than two hoursa fter the attack ended. T he only positive news was that Japans main target, t he aircraft carriers Lexington, Enterprise and S aratoga, were not in the harbor at the time and escaped a ny damage. Many of you reading this still remember that day. Remember how shocked and e xcited voices broke into the leisurely Sunday radio prog ramming, bringing war into A merican homes; how telep hones started to ring and people gathered in the street. Y ou remember the surprise, the outrage, the fear a nd foreboding as a witn ess you are living history. T ime passes, however, and generations fade. An event, no matter how powerful, loses impact as the witnesses who saw it, heard it or smelled it as those who were touched by it vanisha way. This fact is what makes reading history important. It is why we must make the effort to learn and remember, so the stories that form us asa nation and a people arent lost forever.

Sometimes Ill see a relevant story in the local paper, and Ill aski n class, Anyone see that front page story in the Inquirer that was on thev ery topic we are discussing? And then Ill look at blank faces. N ot a single person in a class of upwardly mobile c ollege graduates in the city of Philadelphia has seen a story relevant tot heir professional interest on the front page of that c itys only non-tabloid daily newspaper. I realize now thats because young people simply dont read newspapers at all. And theya dmit it. They claim to get their n ews on-line. And they may believe they do. But I dont by it because, witha ll due respect to the younger generation, they d ont seem to know anything. This is purely subjective a nd anecdotal, but it seems to me that earlier in my career, 15, 20, 25 or more years ago, I got more pushback from my students.S tudents back then seemed more opinionated, perhaps because on average they had more information and knowledge of currente vents on which to base opinions. L ooking at a news website is not the same thing asr eading a newspaper. You only click on an item if the headline happens to interest you. But reading a newspaper allows you to beginr eading an article, and then move on quickly if its not of interest. And every newspaper reader knows the experience and pleasureo f encountering news items on unexpected topics that turn out to be both interesting and informative. Ive actually had young college graduates tell me seriously that they rely on Jon Stewarts Daily Show on the Comedy Channel for their news. Even Jon Stewart describes that program as a fake news show. I was recently back at Oberlin College for my 40th college reunion. I learned that the college was so concerned about student abandonment of newspapers that it had arranged a bulk subscription to the New York Times, through a graduate who worked in that papers circulation department, for free distribution to students. The New York Times was made available to be picked up for free at various convenient locations on campus. There was just one problem. The students wouldnt p ick up the free paper. It just sat there in stacks. And the college remains con-c erned that for all the idealism and ambition of its students, they dont seemt o know much about whats happening in the world. C licking on links on a news website is not like reading a newspaperb ecause theres so much information online that o nly the links already of interest get clicked. Thats like political conservatives only going to Fox News for their news, or liberals rely-i ng only on MSNBC. And it may be another cont ributing factor to the political polarization of America, each side oblivi-o us to the concerns of the other. M aybe its because more and more people dont know anything, that candid ates for political office can draw a following even though they dont know anything. Voters can identify with the candidates who,l ike them, dont read newspapers or know anything. Im thinking Sarah Palin here, and Herman Cain, and Michele Bachmann,a nd Rick Perry. Those happen to be Republicans, but I concede that some Democratic politiciansb elong in this category, too. Newspapers are a filter for the tremendous volume of news available on-linen ow.Whether its the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal, the Philadelphia Inquirer or the Boston Globe, newspaperst ell us what their editors and reporters think is important and what we need to know. Its fashionable now to say we want our news unfiltered. But too often that means we dont find what we need to know because its too difficult, like trying to drink from a fire hose. Whats the future of America, of democracy, and of the increasingly complicated world without newspapers and a wellinformed public? Not good.

Wringing their collective hands in mock concern that tax increaseor sensible regulators will somehow inhibits the job creators from investing their hoarded wealth in productive activity. The reality is that job creators will create jobs when they see opportunities to make money. Then, and only then, will they jump in with both feet and race to acquire a larger share of new opportunities (and essary to increase their take. When American workers have more money to spend, consumer markets expand, creating more opportunity for the rich to get richer.

Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidMessage from Teddy Roosevelt, 1907Editor: These words were spoken to immigrants 104 years ago: Theodore Roosevelts ideas on Immigration and being an American in 1907. In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the persons becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isnt an American at all. We have room for but flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here and that is the English language...and we have room for but one loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people. Amen. Marvin Bud Kammerman SebringRemember Pearl Harbor Dec. 7 Editor: Remember the Veterans who died? Who did more damage to America? The Japanese at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7 or the Mexican illegal workforce? Every American is aware that the illegal worker bankrupted every state. The returning American veteran is asking the illegal Mexican worker who has replaced him in the workforce to go home. We, the veterans, are part of the 99 percent. These returning veterans and those who gave their lives were fighting for the sovereignty of America only to have those in public office sell them out to a foreign workforce and the illegal workforce. The Republican Party, under the leadership of Ronald Reagan, gave citizenship to 3 million illegals along with 27-plus family members to each new citizen. That total comes to 84 million new citizens to go on the Social Security rolls. Americans have spent a lifetime paying into the system. By rewarding illegal workers citizenship, it only enticed many millions of illegals to enter the country illegally. The American-elected officials refused to close our borders. All have violated their oaths of office. Those same Republicans are now asking for the destruction of all social programs. Social Security is number one, Medicare is number two. They raided our tax system as well as our social programs to give huge tax breaks to the super rich. The American veteran has only returned home to find that the elected public officials have sold him out to the super rich. He is only changing battlefields. Welcome home, bother and sister veteran.

This is what it’s all about.” This year was definitely a unique one, according to Greenslade, because the parade was originally canceled due to the threat of inclement weather and had to be rescheduled. “We had to have a parade. This would have been the first time in the history of the parade that we didn’t. This is a big part of Avon Park,” Greenslade said. “I personally would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding.” Greenslade laughed and joked during the parade, shaking hands with participants and spectators alike as he windmilled his arms to keep the floats moving and it was obvious that he was having a ball. But the parade didn’t go off without something that had to be handled. Alarge production never does. The lights started rolling from the lead police cruiser when Greenslade got the call that Santa was running a little late was not on his traditional spot on the final fire truck. Must have been a reindeer thing. Greenslade spoke not a word and went right to his work. Like a general overseeing an ever-changing battlefield, he immediately began directing resources and elves without pause. Councilman Paul Miller leapt from his lawn chair with hardly a clatter and more rapid than eagles, jumped into a police car and rushed to the hook and ladder truck. But when he got there, helpers had already taken action and a jolly and very animated Santa was in his usual spot. After Santa passed, and the crowds began to gathe r in the street in the wake of all the lights and music, Greenslade began the cleanup: his eyes, how they twinkled! “Did you have fun?” he exclaimed ere he walked out of sight as his granddaughter, Ella McHargue, leapt into his arms that fin al night. Her laughter said it all. All of us here at the News Sun want to wish Dave a Happy Christmas, for it was a very good night. Continued from page 1A Parade a swan song for Chambers Greenslade

C M Y K Special to the News-SunThe Southwest Florida Water Management District is reminding residents who irrigate their lawns to skip a week or more of watering during the cooler months of December, January and February. According to research by the University of Florida, grass doesn’t need to be watered as often during the cooler months. One-half to three-quarters of an inch of water every 10-14 days is sufficient. In fact, if your lawn has received any significant rainfall, then you can turn off your irrigation system and operate it manually as needed. “Overwatering can encourage pests and disease in your lawn,” said Sylvia Durell, Florida-Friendly Landscaping project manager. “Too much irrigation can also make lawns less able to survive droughts.” Skipping a week of watering is as easy as “off” for residents with irrigation timers. “Turn the timer to ‘off’for the week that you want to skip, and ‘on’for the week that you want to water,” said Durell. You can determine when your grass needs water when: — Grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least one-third of your yard. — Grass blades appear blue-gray. — Grass blades do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it. Watering only every other week at most during the winter will help conserve drinking water supplies that the public needs for critical uses during the dry season. In fact, if everyone skipped one week of irrigation this season, it could save an estimated 1.9 billion gallons of water. Visit www.WaterMatters.org/Skip AWeek/ for details.

I’d like the majority of the meeting to be the sharing of information and ideas from the citizens. The better informed we both are, the more effective our local government can be,” Elwell stated in a press release on Monday. When asked, Elwell stated that the other commissioners were welcome to attend, and that they were invited to the meeting. “This is not a novel concept, but certainly not one used very often by someone not seeking immediately reelection,” Elwell said. “I would like to try this about once a year, and hopefully get 30-40 participants.” The topics for discussion, Elwell said, will include the idea of a multi-year budget and becoming a charter county. “I know that in the next couple of years the appraisals could continue to spiral downward. This gives us a chance to look at massive action like possibly eliminating a department and not just a band-aid approach to our budget,” Elwell said. Soft drinks and water will be provided for the two-hour event and participation from all county residents is encouraged. Those seeking more information are encouraged to contact Elwell at 381-5622.

C M Y K Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. — After a 67-year-old Florida woman was found beaten, strangled and hidden beneath the Christmas presents in her home, authorities charged a younger woman who had been befriended by the victim. Patty Michelle White, 40, of York, S.C., was being held in the York County jail on fugitive charges, and was expected to be extradited Tuesday to Florida to face murder charges, authorities said. The body of Michele O’Dowd of Jacksonville was discovered Friday by her twin brother, Phil Axt, who had gone to check on her at her home in a gated community after O’Dowd failed to show up for work. The door was open and O’Dowd’s house had been ransacked, Axt said. Chairs and tables were turned upside down. Her car and dog were still at home. “I knew this wasn’t going to pretty,” he said. Afoot was sticking out of a big pile of Christmas gifts, Axt said. Buried under the gifts was his sister’s cold body, her bloody face covered with a towel. Police said White was an ex-girlfriend of the victim’s nephew, and was considered a family friend. They said White had returned to Florida to rob O’Dowd after staying with relatives in South Carolina. “Whatever took place in that apartment went horribly wrong and she ended up beating and killing her,” according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. White then returned to South Carolina, where she confessed to authorities after she was pulled over and arrested Saturday. Axt said his aunt treated White as part of the family, giving her odd jobs to earn extra money even though “she just couldn’t keep a job, couldn’t get her life together.” O’Dowd allowed White to stay at her home for a month for free, trusting her with her PIN number to her debit card so White could purchase groceries for the two of them. White later used that debit card to withdraw $1,000 at two bank ATMs in Florida, authorities said. Authorities took some clothes from White’s family’s home in South Carolina. county staff get back together with the sheriff’s staff to flush out the ideas, but Maj. Mark Schrader of the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office stated that was not necessary. “There is no need for us to continue meeting,” Schrader said. Real estate agent Jimmy Wohl, who represents the owners of the Bank of America building through Heartland Realty, told commissioners his client was ready to move forward. “The owner is sort of in financial distress,” Wohl said. Board members and Wohl agreed that the BOAbuilding would need to be completely remodeled to fit the sheriff’s needs. “The structure is sound. We have had a mechanical engineer, and structural engineer, a safety inspector and an electrical engineer in there. They recommended that no partition wall be allowed to stand. You will have to demolish everything internally and install new electrical, new walls, new networking, and fit them specifically to the sheriff’s needs,” said. Benton also explained that she did not think that the Restoration Church would fi t the needs because of storm readiness and remodeling needed. The board voted 4-1 against the first motion, made by Commissioner Barbara Stewart, to just consider the two options of the Bank o f America building and a new building. Staff was directed to return “ASAP” by chairman Jack Richie with their recommendations. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, December 7, 2011Page 7A UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 3.639"; 5"; Black; **internet included**; 0 0 0 1 4 6 7 6 DAILY COMMERCIAL; 9.347"; 9"; Black plus three; process, centurylink; 0 0 0 1 4 6 8 0 Highlands Hammock; 3.639"; 3"; Black; -; 0 0 0 1 4 6 9 4 many who was deserving. “The other 66 superintendents are all really great people. The last four of five years have been extremely rough times, especially financially, for the whole state. There were a lot of people from bigger districts who could have been selected,” Cox said. An emotional Cox fought back tears as he shared what the selection and recognition means to him. “It is a true reflection of my staff. It’s an honor,” Cox said. Board chairman Ned Hancock sat with Cox in his office early Tuesday morning following a small celebration for Cox. Hancock spoke for several minutes ,congratulating and recognizing Cox’s accolade. “We are very proud of him. For a school district of our size to have our superintendent chosen over other districts that are five or ten times our size, it is a very big deal,” said Hancock. Cox humbly directed the recognition back to his staff. “Someone asked me what the first thing was I wanted to do after receiving the title and I told them ‘I want to turn it over to my staff’,” said a tearful Cox. Hancock again complimented the superintendent on his work ethic and consistent service to the school, staff and students. “You never hear him say ‘me.’It’s always what’s best for the students or what’s best for our people,” said Hancock. Cox, who stated he isn’t really a fan of the recognition he receives, feels that service is the backbone of his staff and the school district as a whole. The recognition however, comes with the job and it is a job that Cox plans to continue to do. “It’s a great job. I love what I do. I am happy every morning when I come to work knowing I am serving children and this district,” Cox said. FADSS Chief Executive Officer, Bill Montford, issued a statement regarding Cox in a press release last week. “Wally Cox is an exceptional educational leader who represents all Florida superintendents with professionalism and dignity. Wally is highly respected throughout Florida and very deserving of this award,” said Montford. School board employees, including Cox’s secretary Pat Kules and HCSB Secretary Connie Scobey, both beamed with pride Tuesday after Cox’s surprise celebration. “We are so, so proud of him,” Scobey said. Kules agreed. In February, Cox will be honored as the representative of Florida and all 66 superintendents from around the state at the AASANational Education Conference held in Houston. “It’s nice for me, but again I turn it over to them,” said Cox.

C M Y K SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, December 7, 2011 NASCAR This Week4B News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Head coach Luther Clemons has his Red Devils out to a 3-0 record after wins over Kathleen and Bishop Moore late last week. Special to the News-SunSEBRING – With the Christmas season upon us, it is time for cooler weather and holiday spirit. Both were exemplified under crispy conditions Saturday morning as a host of men, women, boys and girls – along with man’s best friend – took to the trails of Highlands Hammock State Park for the Santa Paws 5K. Renee Marin-Gomez was the overall male winner, completing the course in a time of 18:16, and Chelsea Graham’s 24:09 time won the overall female field. Michael Quigley was the Masters Male winner in 19:44, Cheryl Graham the Masters Female winner in 29:51, with Terry Engle winning the Grand Masters Male in 22:22 and Lois Hotchkiss winning the Grand Masters Female in 30:26. It was then on to the One Mile Pet Parade where owners and their dogs had their chance. Jessica Prescott and Daphane came across first, followed by Mr. Riley and Toby, Chloe and Camry, Tucker Babbit and Buddy and Diane Estes and Eileen Game with Katie and Sarah rounding out the top five.

After sweeping through the Bill Jarrett Ford Tip-Off, the Red Devils cruised past to open their regular season. Then, with more than a week off over Thanksgiving break, it was back at it for two seemingly tough road dates, Thursday, Dec. 1 at Kathleen and Saturday, Dec. 3 at Bishop Moore. But this high-octane, faststarting Devil attack set the tone early against Kathleen, breaking out to a 21-8 lead after one. That lead was pushed to 37-18 by the half before Avon Park set the cruise control to a 67-42 win. Things got a little tougher Saturday in Orlando. Bishop Moore held down the typical first-quarter barrage and stayed with the Devils to the tune of a 12-12 tie. A14-8 edge in the second period paved the way to a six-point lead at the break, but that was all but made up in the third, with the Hornets carrying a 17-13 margin to make it a 39-37 game heading into the final eight minutes. But the Devils saved the best for last, breaking out fo r 21 fourth-quarter points and holding the hosts to just eigh t in the 67-45 win. Now 3-0 on the young season, Avon Park was back at i t Tuesday with a home date with Frostproof and a Friday district contest at Lake Placid. Red Devils go to 3-0 By RONALD BLUM Associated PressDALLAS — Jeffrey Loria watched the news conference from the second row, beaming like a proud parent as Heath Bell talked about his new love for the Miami Marlins and reuniting with Jose Reyes. Trying to make a quick getaway, the owner was surrounded by reporters in the corridor who wanted to know who else would be migrating to South Florida: Albert Pujols, C.J. Wilson, Mark Buehrle? Instead of trading away their stars, the Marlins have become the biggest player in the offseason market, the riches from their new ballpark a free-agent attraction. “I want our team to be important,” Loria said Monday as the winter meetings opened. “It’s an energy city, and I think that’s one of the things that brings the players there. They see the energy.” Bell’s $27 million, threeyear contract was finalized, giving the renamed Marlins an All-Star closer. Reyes’$106 million, sixyear deal is a satisfactory physical from conclusion. Pujols, who already has toured the new ballpark, would join Hanley Ramirez, Mike Stanton and Logan Morrison in the batting order — if the three-time NLMVP is willing to leave the St. Louis Cardinals, the only major league team he’s played for. “One big hitter?” Loria said out loud, his 2003 World Series ring flashing from his hand. “Well, I don’t know about that, but there’s a possibility of another player or two we’re looking at.” Morrison, among others, was wondering. “Just out of surgery. Everything went well,” he wrote on Twitter after a minor knee operation, adding: “Have we signed Pujols yet??” On the mound, Wilson or Buehrle could be added to a rotation that includes Josh Johnson (if healthy), Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez and Chris Volstad. While the Marlins are being aggressive, traditional big spenders such as the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are moving cautiously, both with free agents and in the trade market. “It’s hey, take my older, expensive, over-the-hill guy for your young, better-perSomethings fishy „ Marlins become big players See MLB, Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Though Matt Taylor got inside 6-foot, 11-inch Ronald Delph for this score, a big Lake Region first quarter was too much for Sebring to overcome Monday night. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING –The Blue Streaks did, in fact, dig themselves too big a hole to get out of in Monday night’s 6648 loss to the visiting Thunder of Lake Region. But in a long high school basketball season, one might view it as digging a foundation to build upon. “It’s a long road, 25 games,” Sebring head coach Princeton Harris said. “Games like this you see what you need to improve and build on that.” The Thunder took the floor with an impressive resume, having fallen to state contender Lake Wales by just six, and a distinctive height advantage, most notably in the 6-foot-11 frame of Ronald Delph. But Lake Region also had 6-foot, 5-inch power forward Joby St. Fleur and a litany of 6-foot-plus wingmen who could all handle the ball. And so it was that the Streaks fell behind early on a Marvin Washington jumper, a Shaquille Haynes drive an d then a Haynes put-back on the offensive glass. Sebring responded with a Davaris Faulk free throw and Decaris Jones jumper, bu t less-than-sharp passing lead to consecutive Thunder fas t breaks, one with Julian Boggan throwing down an emphatic dunk. Jared Cannon would ge t inside for two Blue Streak points, but when the firs t eight minutes had ended, the hosts were looking up at an 18-5 deficit. “We gave away 10 points in transition with lay-ups,” Harris said. “Take those away, we’re down three points at halftime.” That’s because Sebring came out strong in the second, cleaned some things up, and played Lake Region to a standstill. Haynes began the eigh t minutes with a fast-break dunk, followed by a steal and lay-up, but Jones hit a three and drove the lane for two. Boggan canned a long two Blue Streaks Thunder struck See SEBRING, Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Ethan Smith and the Blue Streaks made it three in a row, outlasting Frostproof 3-2 Monday night to move their record to 5-2-1 on the season.

Continued from 1B Santa Paws 5K results forming guy,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. “Let me think about that and get back to you, buddy.” Not that he’s acting any differently with opening day four months away. “I’m sure my ideas are as distasteful as the ones that I’ve received,” he said. As the four-day swap session began, the first piece of formal business was the annual meeting of the Hall of Fame Veterans Committee, which elected late Chicago Cubs third baseman Ron Santo. He’ll be inducted in Cooperstown on July 22, along with any players elected by members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Jan. 9. Pujols and Prince Fielder are the big bats on the market, and it remains unclear whether Pujols is willing to leave the World Series champions, where he’s joined Stan Musial as a franchise icon. “I always use the word hopeful,” Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said. “I think it’s presumptive to say that I’m optimistic because we obviously have continuing discussions and have a good dialogue going.” No longer watching players like Josh Beckett and Miguel Cabrera getting hooked by other teams, the Marlins now have the bait to attract baseball’s best. They drew a major leaguelow 1.52 million fans to Sun Life Stadium, also home to the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, last season. But Loria expects his team will draw 2.5 million to 3 million at the new ballpark. “When you have a ballpark that seats 78,000, there’s no great demand — and in the middle of nowhere in a football-configured stadium,” he said. “But with a ballpark half the size of that and a baseball-only ballpark, you create a different kind of experience and we’ve seen it in our sales already.” The rest of baseball has taken notice of a team that hopes to overtake Philadelphia and Atlanta in the NLEast. “Good for the Marlins. I’m happy for them, and it’s something, of course, I’d like to see happen for us. But in the meantime, you can’t cry about it,” said Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon, whose team along with Oakland are the last two trying to get new ballparks. Calling Reyes an “exciting young man” and Wilson a “very intelligent and very interesting guy,” Loria said he thinks the Marlins can become a consistent winner in their retractable-roof ballpark, not far from downtown Miami. “With the roster that we have and the things we hope we can do, the outlook is very good,” he said. “I’m not going to make any predictions. But we certainly want to be in position to compete seriously.” While the Marlins are poaching, other teams want to retain their stars. Texas may want Wilson back after he helped it come within one strike of the team’s first World Series title. “We basically felt they were going to test the market and we’d circle back to each other,” general manager Jon Daniels said. The Mets, plunging to losing records in all three seasons at Citi Field and plagued by losses from the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme, are cutting payroll from the $14 0 million range in 2008 and 2009 to about $100 million next year. General manager Sandy Alderson said the team los t $70 million but wouldn’t say whether it was all this year. “When I took the job, my understanding was the payroll was not at a sustainable level, that it would have to come down somewhat,” he said. “Perhaps it’s had to come down a little more than I would have expected.” Reyes returns to Citi Field when the Marlins visit April 24. He’ll be in their new uniforms with garish colors. “Well, I was a little surprised they had that much money to burn,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to a $6 million, two-year contrac t with utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr. and neared an agreement with pitcher Aaron Harang. Minnesota agreed to a $4.75 million, one-year deal to keep closer Matt Capps, a person familiar with that deal said on condition o f anonymity because it had no t yet been announced. Continued from 1B MLB winter meetings are just warming up before 5-foot-7 Jonathan Tookes lofted a tear-drop over Delph for two and Cannon drilled a three to make it 24-15 with 2:54 to play. Matt Taylor would hit a short jumper from the right of the lane and Michael Weston put back an offensive rebound, though James Jackson would score inside, Boggan would convert a three-point play and Naldy Metellus got free for another fast break and the 13-point margin held at the half, 3219. It would play out like that throughout much of the second half, with the lead fluctuating in the mid to upper teens, but the Streaks never letting Lake Region completely pull away. The Streaks scored 14 in the third, to the Thunder’s 15, for a 47-33 margin after three, and their last gasp came on a Cannon three to cut it to 50-38 early in the fourth. But Lake Region ran off the next nine before Cannon would get inside for two, and from there it was just a matter of time before the final buzzer sounded. “I saw some good things, and I feel better about how we played in this loss than in our win over Frostproof,” Harris said. “This was a much different team. We go t stretched and we got better. We just have to continue to do that.” Sebring faced Hardee a t home Tuesday and are scheduled to host DeSoto Saturday night.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING — After a several year hiatus, the Kiwanis Club of Sebring brought back its annual Pancake Breakfast on Nov. 5. The breakfast took place at First United Methodist Church in downtown Sebring and featured all-you-can-eat light and fluffy pancakes, sausage links, juice, milk and coffee. The Kiwanis Club of Sebring utilizes the revenue generated from its fundraising events to fund its philanthropic works in the community. One hundred percent of the pancake sales will go to benefit local youth clubs including the Sebring High School Key Club, Avon Park High School Key Club, Middle School Builders Clubs and the elementary school KKids programs. One dollar from every ticket sale goes to the Kiwanis Club of Sebring’s scholarship fund for the Sebring and Avon Park Key Clubs. Kiwanis Clubs focus on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time. To do this, clubs also sponsor a Kiwanis family club such as the K-Kids for primary school children; Builders Clubs for adolescents; Key Clubs for teens; CKI Clubs for University students and Aktion Clubs for adults living with disabilities. The motto of Kiwanis International is “Serving the children of the World.” Kiwanis International includes 8,400 clubs with more than 270,000 members in 96 nations. Last year, Kiwanis clubs donated more than $100 million and almost six million volunteer hours for community service projects. The Kiwanis Club meets every Wednesday at noon at Homer’s Restaurant. For more information, contact President Andrew Hughes at 402-1776 or Lt. Governor Grace Plants at 655-0045 or visit the Facebook page at Facebook/Kiwanis Club of Sebring. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, December 7, 2011Page 7B hometown biz; 9.347"; 13"; Black plus three; process, hometown biz dummy; 0 0 0 0 6 3 0 4 Courtesy photo Maria Brilhante prepares pancakes at the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast on Nov. 5.

C M Y K Are you like the old woman who lived in a shoe, except you have so much wrapping paper that you don’t know what to do. Wrapping paper is expensive and it takes over our craft room, extra bedroom or the dining room table when that time of year rolls around. It’s here. Many years ago my mother bought a huge roll of red Christmas paper. I can still see this hideous print in my head. I think she wrapped presents with it for 10 years. After she died there was still some of it left. I was never so happy as to discard that paper. I will never forget my stepfather opening a gift with his pocket knife so we could save the paper. It would take him what seemed like hours to open a present. Then he would gently fold it up. We all hated it. That is what happens when you are raised by someone who went through the great depression. They save everything: ribbons, rubber bands, aluminum foil and plastic grocery bags. Have you ever seen a rubber band ball larger than a softball? Some things are not worth saving. Having huge stashes of holiday paper and ribbons makes it hard on us to make a decision. We also put off messing with wrapping because there is so much mess. Then we make a bigger mess for ourselves because we put ourselves into the time crunch. We have to get a handle on our holiday wrapping. It starts with decluttering what we have. You know those little pieces you have saved for those small presents that you never buy and those tiny strips of ribbon that are never long enough to go around anything. Let’s get out our wrapping paper stash and pare it down. About 10 years ago I came up with a theme for my Christmas wrapping. After being so tired of looking a busy gift wrapping for so many years; I decided to keep it simple. At first I used brown paper sacks and took them apart to wrap our presents. That got old when you would have to piece the paper sacks together to fix a large box. That is when I found a roll of craft paper in the shipping section of Monstor-Mart. With craft paper, all I needed was ribbon and gift tags. I love wired ribbon. You can make a bow easily; it’s just like tying your shoes. I do one bow on top of another. It takes about 10 feet of ribbon to obtain a gorgeous fluffy bow. Now don’t get all bent out of shape over how much wired ribbon I use. It can be reused because it is so long. For the gift tags you can use last year’s Christmas cards. Just cut the cover off and write the name on the back. I bought a stamp to put “To: and From:” on the card. I color code my presents by whose home they are going to. My daughter-in-law loves silver ribbon. Their presents get wrapped with silver and our grand children‚s gifts get wrapped in Santa Ribbon or Red. Kelly likes gold. The gifts I take to the office get purple ribbons. See how simple this can be. If you just think about it now and keep it simple. Set up a place for you to wrap presents. Put a marker, scissors or cutter, your paper, tape, gift tags and ribbons in this area. My area is right beside our extra bedroom closet. I keep the rolls of paper in an old suit bag along with an old tote bag that holds the ribbon and tools. They just hang in the closet, out of the way till I need them. Stay on top of your wrapping. As a gift comes into your home wrap it, tag it and put it away until time to put the tree up. If you need a place to hide presents from inquiring minds; that is what your stored luggage is for. They even give us a lock. Just be sure and write down where you hide things in your Holiday Control Journal. It won’t be very funny when you find those lost presents as you are packing for your summer vacation.

He was a great catch by my standards – and still is. But back then nobody else wanted him but me, which was fine with me. I don’t like competition. We have had a great life together up until the last 10 years or so. Mason is aging gracefully, and there’s something about him now that every woman is suddenly interested in. They all treat him like he’s a new toy. They fawn over him and I become invisible. We don’t get out much, and I used to think I wanted to go out more – but now I just want to stay home and hide my husband inside. The real problem is, Mason loves the attention. It could be what he always wanted. I don’t know how to handle this without getting my feelings hurt, pouting and being incredibly jealous. He gives me no reason to think he’ll be unfaithful, but I can’t help but worry. Help! – Wife of a Late Bloomer DearWife: Congratulations. You are now a member of a “club” comprised of spouses living in the shadows of actors, politicians, moguls, etc. However, your self-esteem issues could create real problems for you and your husband if you don’t learn to deal with them. You weren’t the “only woman Mason could get” – you’re the woman Mason chose to spend his life with. The sooner you accept that, the better off both of you will be. If you can’t do it on your own, counseling could help because hiding is not the answer. DearAbby: My son and daughter-in-law live like pigs. Neither one of them was raised that way. They live in a beautiful home that literally smells like a litter box. I would look the other way or not visit, but now they have four children. Not only are my grandchildren unkempt and dirty – dirty clothes, smelly shoes, unwashed hair – but my son and his wife foist their parenting duties off on their daughter, who’s only 10. It’s her job to get her brothers up and bathed, changed, dressed and fed s o Mom and Dad can sleep late. The poor girl is exhausted all the time. She doesn’t always have the time to brush her own hair/teeth before school. She’s often made fun of. My son sees nothing wrong with these “chores,” and I’m afraid to say anything because I know my daughter-in-law will cut me off from the kids. What’s sad is my son allows it. Am I crazy? Please help. – Desperate Grandma on the East Coas t DearDesperate Grandma: You’re not crazy; you’re a caring grandmother who can’t stand seeing her grandchildren neglected.

He arrives so early that we’re usually still in bed. He also rides a motorcycle that sounds like a jet engine and disturbs our neighbors. I have asked my husband several times to talk to his dad about these early morning visits. He refuses to say anything. We have two kids who are 4 and 9 months. Sleep is something we cherish. What do I do? – Annoyed Daughter-inlaw in Pennsylvania DearDaughter-in-law: Because your husband refuses to stand up and explain to his father that he needs to come at a specific time – like 11 o’clock – that task now falls to you.

Business was dismal, with box-office tracker Hollywood.com estimating Sunday that domestic revenues totaled just $82 million. That puts it barely ahead of Hollywood’s worst haul of the year, when revenues were $81.5 million over the second weekend in September. Summit Entertainment’s blockbuster “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” raised its domestic haul to $247.3 million. Coming in second again was Disney’s “The Muppets” with $11.2 million, lifting the family film’s domestic total to $56.1 million. Twilight stays bright but Hollywood snoozes
