C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING — Understanding how to use the scientific method is one of the keys to a good education — especially as the fundamentals can be adapted to any subject area and throughout life. Individuals who understand the steps are well prepared to make their way in the world because they know how to ask questions, how to research existing knowledge, how to propose a hypothesis based on research, how to test that hypothesis through controlled experiments and how to analyze the results in order to draw conclusions. This is why the advanced academics science fair Tuesday at the Sebring Middle School is an important event. To do well, students have to show they understand the scientific method and can execute each step. One goal is for students to find out if what they thought would be true really was the case. For example, sixth-grader Jacob Todd, who was awarded an honorable mention, wanted to find out which of three golf ball brands — Nike, Top Flite or Noodle — would fly the farthest. Because he plays golf, he wanted to know the best brand to buy. His hypothesis was, “Nike brand will fly the furthest ... because it is more expensive and said to be of higher quality.” It NEWS-SUN Highlands County’s Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Wednesday-Thursday, December 14-15, 2011www.newssun.comVolume 92/Number 147 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 HighLow 79 57Complete Forecast PAGE 12A Partly sunny and breezy Forecast Question: Do you put money in the Salvation Army kettles?

Vice-Mayor Ray Royce dropped the final gavel on the meeting a t 11:55 p.m. after covering a lot o f ground on the pay-for-play ordinance. Council directed Town Attorney Bert Harris to return with a recreation ordinance on Jan. 9 for a first public hearing. “I think we have a working document now,” Royce said about the draft that has taken more than six months and involved several groups from the public. Jon Million, a representative of the Recreation Committee, twice went section by section with the council in order to explain his group’s thoughts and reasons for pay-for-play options. “We tried to make this as simple as possible and to reach the largest group as possible fo r permitting,” Million said. Million suggested that everyone who participated in any recreational activity at Lake June Park seek a permit from the town or from the Recreation Committee, and those fees would come back to the town to help pay for park maintenance. “The best facilities we have for the little guys are in Lake June Park,” Councilman Debra Worley said, disagreeing with the Recreation LP gets closer to pay for play See LAKE, page 3A News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS Sufia Ahmed (from right), Selma Ahmed, Kaley Terrell and her dad Bob check-out student science fair projects Tuesday morning during Sebring Middle Schools Gallery of Science.

The long anticipated Big Event was held Sunday evening and brought in students from all over hear music and celebrate the love of Christ. Numerous community churches and businesses worked brilliantly together to provide a free, inspiring event for the areas youth. Youth For Christ Executive Director Greg Griffin was moved by the altruism during the event. “I can’t tell you how thankful I am for all the faithbased members of this community that helped out during this event, both businesses and churches,” Griffin said. YFC headed the event with the help of just more than 30 local churches of all denominations and faiths. Griffin and YFC decided to hold the event after meeting Chad Varga several months ago. “The idea really came from Steve Slaybaugh. He wanted to make this something after Varga spoke at the schools,” Griffin explained. The event wasn’t as easy to come by as the involved parties would have hoped however. After months of planning, the event was delayed due to concerns regarding legalities of religion in the schools. The Big Event a huge success News-Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR Emotions overflow as Chad Varga and his mother Kathy tell the story of their tumultuous past.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING — The Heartland Cultural Alliance partnered with Cracker Trail Elementary to bring students into the Scribes Night Out event Monday evening at Brewster’s Coffee House. Atotal of 92 students, parents and guests squeezed into the coffee shop to listen to future writers and artists share their tales and thoughts. Fred Leavitt, president of the HCA, was thrilled with the turnout at Brewster’s. “It shows a level of interest. We are all about arts and culture and we are trying to reach the next generation of kids,” Leavitt said. According to a U.S. Labor Department report, students of the arts continue to outperform their non-art student counterparts. Leavitt agrees with the report and continues to push for more arts in students curriculum and works to provide extra activities like the one Monday night to keep students interested. “Artists — and that’s writers, painters, whatever their art may be — make the better students. We want to raise this flag and make it known that art is important to this generation and the next,” Leavitt said. The CTE fourth graders read a number of stories and other writings to their families and attendees. The program had no certain criteria for entering and students are not required to write about specific topics. “They write about whatever is on their minds. Some were very touching, some were very funny. We had a mixture of kids and their writings covered a very broad range. It gets them excited, they have a little attention and receive positive strokes,” said Leavitt. The HCAis proud of the event’s debut and is already planning to bring students back to Sribes Night Out in the very near future. Millie Richmond proposed the concept to CTE. “We want to keep this going. It is a little premature, but we want and we hope to have it go through to every elementary school in the county at this grade level,” Leavitt said. “The kids get all hyped about it so we hope to carry this further.” Awards were handed out to winners in different categories and those winners will hopefully go on to compete against winners at other Highlands County schools in the future.

How many birds can you count in your backyard this winter? While you may not hear their boisterous whistles and tweets like you do in spring, birds are still in your backyard. Your yard may look gloomy and dull this time of year, but there are bright spots, or feathers, to see. In fact, many species of birds are just arriving from as far away as Canada. It is migration season, when many of our feathered friends travel to the warm state of Florida to escape the frozen, snowy north. What might you see bustling and flitting around your yard? Well, you might set your sights on a yellowbellied sapsucker, a migratory woodpecker that gets its name because of the holes it bores into trees to “suck” the sap out of the bark. Or you might see an American goldfinch or chipping sparrow. Although their colors are duller in the winter, goldfinches are still easy to spot through bare branches and brown leaves because of their yellow feathers, black wings with white markings and cone-shaped bill. The chipping sparrow is a robust little bird with a rust-colored “cap” on its head. It must love to be heard because it sings loudly from high, outer limbs of trees. Chipping sparrows like feeders too, if you have one. Counting and viewing birds is as easy as walking out your back door and looking in your trees, bushes or at your feeder. Make it a family event and take mom or dad outside with you. Things to have handy: binoculars, bird guides and checklists to keep track of the kind of birds you see and how many you count. If you plan to be outside for a long period of time, take a blanket to sit on and a cup of hot chocolate. You can also join the FWC’s Wings Over Florida (http://floridabirdingtrail.co m/index.php/resources/wings /) program or become a Junior Birder by visiting FloridaBirdingTrail.com (http://floridabirdingtrail.co m/) and selecting “Birding Resources” in the left-hand menu; then click on “Wings Over Florida.” That is where you can learn about the Junior Birder Program and download a copy of the Bird Detective checklist. Another opportunity to count birds in your backyard happens Feb. 17-20, 2012. The yearly Great Backyard Bird Count is the largest bird count in North America. This event helps scientists learn things, like how winter weather influences bird populations, how this year’s migration compares with last year’s, and what kinds of birds are in cities and rural areas.

C M Y K Committee’s proposal of requiring everyone who uses Lake June Park to have a permit. The council decided after considerable discussion to only require those participating in organized sports to purchase a permit yearly and excluded most passive activities in all the parks within Lake Placid. Referees, volunteers for the Miracle League and spectators at an event are exempted from a permit, but participants in the Miracle League events would still be required to pay. “I was asked by the Miracle League to treat those participants the same as all other leagues, but I can understand exempting the volunteers,” Royce pointed out. The council also made it clear that they wanted to charge citizens who wish to reserve a park for events like family reunions, but people could still use parks on a first-come-first-serve basis without a fee. It was recommended by Million that those that were playing on a league without a permit be levied a fine of double the yearly permit and the league —a potential fine of $250 per incident. “It doesn’t matter what you charge, you will never recoup the complete cost for maintenance of the recreational facilities,” Worley said. “I am against any fee, but I understand why we are doing this.” Although the Recreation Committee recommended a fee structure for the yearly permit of $20, the council decided not to include that amount in the actual ordinance, leaving room to set all the fees by resolution as needed. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, December 14, 2011Page 3A DAILY COMMERCIAL; 9.347"; 9"; Black plus three; process, centurylink; 0 0 0 1 4 6 8 2 ADVANTAGE FLOOR COVERING; 3.639"; 3"; Black; main a; 0 0 0 1 4 9 3 1 Continued from page 1A “There are two topics that cause debate and that’s freedom of religion and freedom of speech ... have to be careful with them both,” Griffin said. The school visits never involved any religious topics; Varga spoke and inspired students without the use of religion. The community members, churches and organizations all band together to make the event happen and it was a huge success. Excited students began to fill the convention center at 3 p.m.; some alone, some with parents and others with groups of friends. Performances by NEWWORLDSON kept the energy high all afternoon and into the evening. Students danced in their seats and through aisles to the upbeat sounds of the bands. “There were students from all over – Port Charlotte, Leesburg, Wauchula, Lakeland. We had pretty good representation of folks across the state,” Griffin said. More than 3,500 were in attendance Sunday night, joining together to celebrate the holiday season and the love of Christ with one another. After Varga told his life story and shared his love for students and the people of Highlands County, students (and all attendees) were invited to rededicate their lives. According to Griffin, approximately 1,000 came to the altar Sunday evening. “We didn’t try to push any students to the altar or persuade them with any one denomination or faith. “I’m happy and proud that a community of believers of Christ came together to promote the good word,” Griffin said. The combined effort of YFC, local businesses and churches provided an amazing opportunity to bring more of Highlands County’s youth to Christ and to people who love and support them. “The energy from the kids, the churches and volunteers drove the event ... YFC couldn’t have done it on our own. “We’ve never done anything quite like this. I’ve never seen a group of churches work so well together for a cause ... we can reach much more as a group than we can as individuals,” Griffin said.

Big Event draws big crowd of students Lake Placid takes another step toward rec fee By GARYFINEOUT Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — Two Florida A&M University students appeared in court Tuesday and said they plan to fight charges that they beat a fellow member of the famed Marching 100 band so hard during a hazing ritual that she was left with a broken thigh. Tallahassee police said three men band members were involved in hazing Bria Shante Hunter for the “Red Dawg Order” — a band clique for students from Georgia. Investigators contend on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, Hunter was beaten with fists and a metal ruler. The alleged hazing of Hunter came about three weeks before drum major Robert Champion died during a band trip to Orlando. Police believe hazing also was involved in that death. At the hearing Tuesday, a judge who set a bond of $2,500 for James Harris, 22, who is charged with hazing. Bonds of $10,000 were set for Sean Hobson, 23, and 19-year-old Aaron Golson. They are charged with hazing and battery. Attorneys for Harris and Golson said their clients would plead not guilty. It wasn’t immediately clear how Hobson would plead. Police said the hazing happened at Harris’offcampus apartment in Tallahassee, and at one point, he stopped Golson and Hobson from hitting Hunter further. Hunter did not immediately return a call to her cell phone. In an interview with Orlando station WFTV-TV, she was asked why band members take part in hazing. “So we can be accepted,” she said. “If you don’t do anything, then, it’s like you’re lame.” Eric Abrahamsen, an attorney for Harris, insisted there was no evidence his client participated in the hazing. Prosecutors said Harris helped planned the hazing. Craig Brown, who is representing Golson, told a he was a good student and should be released withou t bond because he was cooperating with police. Leon County Judge Ronald Flurry, however, required Golson to post a bond because he said if the charges were true, they were “egregious.” Golson’s mother traveled from Atlanta for the hearing but refused to comment. After the hearing, Brown said Golson would fight the charges and said there was a “difference in the stories” of what actually took place. Florida A&M band members plan to fight hazing charges PLANTATION (AP) — A South Florida man has successfully used the state’s Stand Your Ground law to escape first-degree murder charges. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports a Broward County judge ordered an acquittal for 54-year-old Nour Badi Jarkas in the 2009 shooting of his estranged wife’s boyfriend. On Monday prosecutors announced they won’t appeal the decision. Judge Ilona Holmes ruled that Jarkas was an invited guest in his wife’s home and felt threatened before he shot John Concannon during a confrontation. The newspaper reports a jury deadlocked on a murder charge last year, months before the Florida Supreme Court ruled the 2005 Stand Your Ground law is intended to keep certain selfdefense cases from reaching a j ury trial.

It needs to happen again. At the outset, Elwell made it clear that he was looking for input from all county districts, not just his own. Almost 50 residents showed up, and almost all of them had an opinion, but Elwell had the skill to keep the discussion about current issues on topic and ended with asking for new short-term goals that the public would like to see. He got an earful. He promised to take those goals to the other county commissioners and seek to make them part of the goals for 2012. The logical next step. This is how government should work at the local level. Affluent land owners rubbed shoulders with the unemployed, and each got an equal say in how the government proceeds. For a brief moment, everyone felt like we, as a county, were moving forward. There was a sense of accomplishment and a definite satisfaction in the fact that the county leadership was listening. The meeting ended in a request for more such meetings and applause. One of the interesting items during the meeting was the absence of party politics. The Tea Party sat next to the Democrats with Libertarians and Republics scattered throughout the room. No one wanted to breech the topic of party lines or national politics during the meeting and everyone was focused on solving problems and goal setting, not politics. Elwell also took the heat for decisions made by the commission as a whole, even the ones he was opposed to and voted against, but he took it on the chin graciously. One person thanked him for listening and complained about the rudeness sometimes received in commission meetings “as a citizen not on the agenda.” May spoke in agreement. It was dialog, plain and simple, and the meeting enhanced the level of communication between an elected official and the public. “Whereas, it appeared to be in the best interest of the people of Highlands County” is a phrase so often included in official actions. It was good to see it applied outside the commission chambers, too. Just keep it going. Thank you sir, may I have another? In the newspaper business, communication is always welcomed, and the more transparent an issue is, the better. That’s why we applaud Commissioner Don Elwell for holding a town hall-style meeting last week. Shop local merchants Editor: I found myself this season needing a new refrigerator. I always panic at things like this. I had had four from one maker in the mall (but) no more. Called and stopped at two other large chain stores. Big sales, late December delivery dates, large fees for delivery and picking up the old one. Some frustration here, needless to say. Well, I remembered Musselman’s, a locally owned store and on the way to work decided to stop and look yesterday. I was back this morning. Selection and prices comparable. In fact, I believe better. Sales people very patient and courteous. It was done — refrigerator bought and will be here tomorrow. The delivery charge, unbelievably low, to the point of “Whoa!” Pick up (of) my non-salvageable one included. Give them a call for this charge and any Christmas shopping you may still have to do. And they service their own sales. Thanks Musselman’s and Merry Christmas. Shop local merchants everyone. Ruth G. Vause Sebring W hy is oil going up?Editor: I have been watching the pictures of oil increase from $90 per barrel, as of today, to $100.87 per barrel at 1:30 p.m. I predict it will go even higher in the future. Why has this jump occurred? I believe it is because Mr. El Presidente has refused to allow the pipeline from Canada to come into our country, plus losing 20,000 shovel-ready jobs and all the back-up jobs which could exceed 100,000. Let us make him a oneterm president and join Carter in Georgia growing peanuts. Charles A. Marr Avon ParkGenerous giftEditor: The Tampa Tribune reported the Morsani family donated $20 million to USF to help build a new medical school.We assume this money is part of the 1 percenter’s stash that President Obama wants more of in order to fund his liberal tax and spend governmental programs.Now it appears as if the donated millions will be utilized by USF to improve health delivery care for all. If the President is seething in his boots over an inability to get the tax cut he desires from the Morsanis’ $20 million stash, his anxiety/determination level may rise even more if he learns $17 million was previously given by the Morsanis to USF for other health initiatives including an out-patient clinic on campus. The Morsanis’actions will probably be sufficient cause for the President to deliver another speech about how the GOPis protecting the wealthy in deference to those less fortunate. Or is the GOPsimply protecting the wealthy from helping to fund more of the President’s liberal tax and spend governmental programs?

As well, kudos to the many TAG members who donated gifts for the raffle. Neil Simpson Sebring Despite the fact that in America, 60 to 70 percent of people identify themselves as “Christian” to one degree or another, Christian-bashing seems to be just about as popular a pastime as watching football these days. And when a national football player commits the unpardonable sins of being both pro-life and vociferously, pro-Jesus, you end up with Monday morning pundits who cast ridiculous judgments from on top of their lofty thrones, much like the old Muppet Show characters Statler and Waldorf. The persecution of Christians has been going on since the days of the Roman Empire; it continues today in many third world countries, brutally, and here in America, more subtly. Tolerant of most other religions, pre-fall Rome viewed Christianity as a fanatical Jewish sect which was so easy to hate they made a sport out of it. Sure, it's a stretch to make an absolute correlation between 21st Century America and first Century Rome. Nonetheless, replace sticks with diatribes and stones with denigrations for similar results. One kills the body; the other slays the spirit. Enter Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow is first collegelevel sophomore to receive the Heisman trophy and carried more awards into his professional career than most college players could only dream of. His leadership and running game converted the Broncos' losing streak into a winning one, effectively moving them into a first-place tie for the AFC West position. Tebow has a better first-eight starting record than John Elway. An ESPN commentator recently wrote that Tebow is not only winning but also accomplishing “historic quarterback feats” like having the most rushing attempts by a quarterback in any game since 1970 and owning the “longest gamewinning touchdown run by a quarterback in the final minute of the fourth quarter in NFLhistory.” Dare I mention he's a virgin? Under normal circumstances, Tebow would be praised for his accomplishments, talent and leadership from around the Monday morning water cooler, but in these days of pseudo political correctness (PC), the words “normal” and “Christian” cannot run together in the same sentence. Those who praise their maker for their talent are not considered talented; they are just creepy. You'd think with all the PC legalese injected into our lives at every turn, there would be a bit more tolerance. Think again. Consider these choice samplings from the peanut gallery: “Maybe he can cure leprosy.” “He'd be a better passer if he'd give in and sleep around town.” “Where's your Messiah?” “I don't want to hear about his faith every other sentence.” “Okay, here we go, the Jesus Gates are open now.” “His deeds should speak for him, not his praising Jesus after every snap of the ball.” “Even Jesus is telling Tim he has had enough.” “God wants you to be a back-up.” Puleeeeease. According to NFLCrime Watch, the National Football League employs quite a share of malcontents. Americans loudly worship these tightsadorned gods despite their delinquencies including: drunken driving, torturing and killing animals, drug possession, DUI, manslaughter, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, battery on a person 65 years and older, domestic violence, and cocaine possession — to name a few. With that kind of lineup, you'd think this son of missionaries and walking miracle would be welcomed into the fold in hopes that some of this saint's goodness would rub off on the sinners. For the unaware, Tebow is a “walking miracle” because his mother refused her doctors' lifesaving advice to abort her presumed-to-be stillborn son while still in her womb. They both lived. And Tebow's been beating the odds and his critics ever since. What is it about Tebow that brings out such nastiness in so many of us? Why does the Jesus in Tebow bring out the Devil in us? Why is Tebow a lightning rod to those who haven't seen the same light? Might it be that we can't sit back to enjoy the game and appreciate Tebow's talent because Tebow's goodness makes us uncomfortable with our own not-so-goodness? If that's the case, Heaven help us.

By dropping the balls from the same height and measuring the bounce, he discovered the Noodle brand, which is the cheapest of the three, bounced the highest. Experiments are only valuable, however, if they are carefully thought out. Students must show how they constructed their experiments, what they manipulated, what they measured and what remained constant. To do that their projects needed to include precise observations and a journal with all the data. For example, Kaley Terrell, whose project was awarded first place in the eighth-grade division, said, “I really like flowers and everyone wants a flower to last. I wanted to find the best preservative.” In her research she discovered sugar is a main ingredient in many flower preservation products, so Kaley honed in on what an optimal amount of sugar would be — five, 10 or 15 grams — given a constant amount of water and a single cut carnation in each identical holder. Her hypothesis was that 10 grams of sugar would work the best. It was slightly off. “Based on what I observed and recorded,” she wrote in her project, “five grams was best.” More sugar grew bacteria, less had no effect. She removed each wilted flower at the first signs of droop because to wait until it was totally dead would be based on “sight and opinion,” not objective science, she said. Dr. Ruth Heckman, district director of secondary education, took her time looking at the 66 different projects. “I just think they did an awesome job,” she said. “There is such a variety of things to see; I’m just really amazed.” For example, eighth-grader Jenna LaBarr plays softball. When she received conflicting advice during the season — her pediatrician telling her to hydrate with Gatorade, and her dentist telling her to drink water — she decided to find out for herself. Sacrificing her saved baby teeth, which she soaked in Gatorade, orange juice or unsweetened tea, she discovered Gatorade corroded the enamel right off her tooth. Eighth-grader Morgan DeVane measured yeast respiration by mixing yeast, water and sugar and measuring the resulting carbon dioxide. Eighth grader Cassie Hare measured diaper absorption and was surprised to find a diaper that held .72 liters of water, “especially after seeing how much .72 liters of water is.” Seventh grader Jennai Hagen wanted to know if orange juice works as a weed killer. “I have concluded,” she wrote, “that orange juice does not kill weeds, it actually makes them grow.” Sixth grader Joshua Orr deserves honorable mention for his honesty. When asked why he chose a project experimenting with paper boats — to see if heavy ones with more folds would sink quicker than simple, lighter ones — he said, “I thought it would win.” Unfortunately, that hypothesis was incorrect. Continued from page 1A Science students experiment to learn SEBRING „ There were three places and two honorable mentions awarded at each grade level during the Sebring Middle School Gallery of Science. The display showcased the work of the sixth-, seventhand eighth-grade advanced science classes. Students received their requirement packets the last week of August. Finished products were seen by the judges Monday; the results were announced Tuesday at an event for parents and students. Sixth Grade Miguel Descartins project on electromagnets and strength was awarded first place. Miguel explained what an electromagnet is and proved by increasing the number of coils, the magnet becomes stronger. Grant Ritenours project to discover which color „ red, yellow or purple „ attracted the most bees the most quickly, was awarded second place. Griffin Chynoweth showed that poplar wood decays quicker than either oak or pine. His project was awarded third place. Jacob Todd, who experimented with golf balls, and Eli Collins, who proved acid rain keeps seeds from germinating, were awarded honorable mentions. Seventh Grade Lucas Highs project on how to produce the highest percentage of popped kernels of popcorn, was awarded first place. He found popcorn kept at room temperature for 24 hours did the best. Mollie Hayes experimented with eggs, to see what affected the shells most „ vinegar, canola oil or bleach (it was bleach). She was awarded second place. Carson Mann wanted to know if high energy heat would affect germinating seeds. He used radish seeds and a microwave oven, and received third place. Hannah Rosenbaum and Selma Ahmed received honorable mentions. Eighth Grade Kaley Terrells project on preserving carnations with sugar was awarded first place. Amanda Webbs project to discover if the size of a seed made a difference in the size of the plant „ Does Size MatterŽ „ concluded that it did not. The project was awarded second place. Logan Carlsons project looking into elasticity and air temperature was awarded third place. Forest Ritenour and Christopher Spoone received honorable mentions. Judges were given a template to use in assessing a students work. The key was to demonstrate a mastery of the scientific method. Every step had to be included. Spelling, grammar and presentation also counted. School board members Ned Hancock, Donna Howerton and Andy Tuck; Betsy Veith, with curriculum development; and teachers Kim Riley and Shawn West were the judges.„ Christopher TuffleyOutstanding science projects

C M Y K At first glance of ESPN baseball writer Jayson Stark’s piece Monday night, I had already made up my mind. Reading his take on things further, only entrenched me more in my stance. And in a way, it’s tough, given that I’m a fan of Ryan Braun. The National League MVPof this past regular season, the Milwaukee Brewer outfielder seemed the face of the new era as Major League Baseball moves away from the infamous “Steroid Era.” Braun began his Major League career in 2007, just when the league had its first true system of testing and enforcement for the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Coming up at that time, fresh from the scar that the era left, it would seem most players would have been scared straight. And the look of Braun didn’t suggest any hint of wrongdoing. He doesn’t have cartoonishly large arms, door-widening shoulders or tree-trunk legs. Which is partly why the news that a recent drug test showed abnormal testosterone levels, that draw a direct link to the use of PEDs, was somewhat surprising – he doesn’t look the type. But that has more to do with the progression and types of PEDs being used. Rather than developing brute strength, a la Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds, it seems it is mor e about endurance. Ahint of that was in a piece by ESPN senior baseball writer Buster Olney, in which he described Brauns’bat speed being ridiculously fast even in the latter stages of the season. I won’t delve too deeply into the fact that he also doesn’t seem like the type as, from the outside looking in, who knows who seems the type? Not to mention that the holy grail of a Major League contract and the level of life it affords would tempt many to make use of any edge they can get. But the question now is, should Braun’s appeal fall flat and he is, in fact, found to have used, what to do now? The question circulated around the cavalcade of ESPN sports-talk shows, with most of the talking heads saying what I felt, which is what Stark’s piece refutes. If Braun is found to have undoubtedly used PEDs in this, his awardBy DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING – In the end, it was a missed free throw and a little bit of mishandling that did Sebring in Monday night. The missed free throw was by the visiting Seminoles of Southeast in Bradenton with 4.4 seconds left on the clock, holding onto a 70-69 lead. “I had drawn up two plays, one for if he made it, another for if he missed it,” Blue Streak head coach Princeton Harris said. “He missed it and we got it upcourt faster than I though we would.” Sebring had the ball in the frontcourt with about three seconds left to get one final shot to claim a last-second victory. “But we messed it up a little bit,” Harris said of the hurried ball-handling that delayed the last-ditch shot until after the final buzzer sounded. Which was, actually, what spelled the Streaks downfall this night. “Turnovers and missed free throws,” Harris said. Though it didn’t start that way, as nary a free throw was even attempted in a breakneck paced opening quarter. Markcene Jean opened the scoring with a three, which was promptly answered by a Davaris Faulk trey. Matt Taylor spun for two inside and Jared Cannon put back an offensive rebound, only to see Jean can another three and score on a fast break to make it an 8-7 Seminole lead. But then Cannon hit backto-back three pointers to put Sebring back up. Southeast center Daniel Louis had a put-back, followed by Decaris Jones hitting a jumper for the Streaks. Jean hit another three, Cannon scored on the break and Seminole guard Antonio Ray got inside for two. But Cannon drove the baseline in the waning moments for a score and the Streaks were up 20-15 after one. The sharp shooting continued early in the second with Josh Austin attacking the basket twice for Sebring, with Andrew Young hitting a trey and James Barnes lofting in a floater for Southeast. Cannon again canned one from downtown and Austin worked inside in between Ray and Cy’kobe Johnson going 4-of-4 at the line. Taylor then hit two of his own from the charity stripe, but the Seminoles got an inside score from Young and another three from Jean, before Ray hit another free throw to close the gap to 3130. But with a chance to take the lead, Southeast missed two free throws and Austin answered with two from the line. Jean cashed in from the stripe for two, but Sebring got a Jones three, a Taylor spin and baby hook for two and a Cannon drive to go into the halftime break up 40-32. That eight-point lead expanded to as much as 12 early in the third as Taylor hit a free throw and scored inside, with Jones then draining a three, while the Seminoles went 2-of-4 at the line, making it a 46-34 game. But from this point forward, the crisp passing became forced, leading to turnovers and Southeast SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, December 14, 2011 NASCAR This Week3B Courtesy photo Sebring girls soccer coach Paul Brown was a featured guest on Ed Lynchs Sports TalkŽ show on Saturday, Dec. 10.

Southeast70Sebring69 Southeast squeaks by Streaks See SEBRING, Page 4B Time to step up See BRAUN, Page 4B South rises in All-Star Classic By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI — Even before the Miami Dolphins fired Tony Sparano on Monday, names of potential successors were being bandied about. Bill Cowher? Jeff Fisher? Jon Gruden? “I’d like to find a young Don Shula if that’s possible,” owner Stephen Ross said. It’s no wonder Ross craves some stability. Since Shula retired in 1996, no coach has made it through five full seasons in Miami. That includes Sparano, fired three games from the end of his fourth season, and one day after the Dolphins lost to the Philadelphia Eagles to fall to 4-9. The defeat ended a recent surge by the Dolphins after they lost their first seven games. With two other NFLteams already in the market for a new coach, Ross didn’t want to wait any longer to start shopping. Sparano’s dismissal came hours after the Kansas City Chiefs fired coach Todd Haley. Jacksonville fired coach Jack Del Rio on Nov. 29. General manager Jeff Ireland’s status had also been in question, but he’ll be retained and take part in the coaching search, Ross said. Todd Bowles, who had been assistant head coach and secondary coach, becomes interim head coach. He’s the sixth coach since 2004 for the Dolphins, who haven’t won a playoff game since 2000 and haven’t reached the Super Bowl since 1984. The Dolphins play Sunday at Buffalo, but they’re already assured of their third consecutive losing season, the longest such streak since the 1960s. “The results speak for themselves,” Ross said at a hastily called news conference. “We’re looking to becoming a winning organization, and I thought this was the best time to make the change and let us go in a direction that will allow us to become that.” Joining Ross at the news conference was Ireland, who hired Sparano in Miami and also worked with him in Dallas. “It’s a difficult day for me,” Ireland said. “He’s a friend of mine. He has been a colleague of mine from before we got here together.” Ross is expected to pursue a coach with star power. But with Ireland remaining in charge of personnel, someone of Cowher’s caliber might not be interested in the job. On the other hand, Ireland stressed the need for an experienced coach, which might rule out hiring an assistant. “You’re looking for the best candidate out there, a guy who has been in the trenches before,” Ireland said. “You’re Dolphins fire Tony Sparano as coach See SPARANO, Page 4B MCTphoto Tony Sparano is out as Dolphins head coach.

C M Y K looking for some of the same qualities I saw in Tony — a tireless worker, a guy who understands offense and defense. We’ll talk about those things as the weeks go by, and exactly what we’re looking for, and iron out a plan that best fits what Mr. Ross is looking for.” Bowles, in his fourth season with the Dolphins, is among those who will be interviewed. Sagging attendance helped doom Sparano, and Ross said he wants a turnaround at the ticket office as well as in the standings. “Certainly when you’re winning, it’s a lot easier to sell tickets,” Ross said. “If you win, everything takes care of itself, and that’s what we’re really trying to bring back.” Sparano began the season aware he was on borrowed time. After Miami’s late-season fade to 7-9 last year, Ross and Ireland embarked on a public courtship with Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh. When Harbaugh instead joined the San Francisco 49ers, Ross gave Sparano a contract extension through 2013. But Ross made clear he expected substantial improvement this season, saying the Dolphins had “the nucleus of a great winning team.” Sparano was fired even though he retained the support of his players, who staged a surprising turnaround after their 0-7 start. “Sad and disappointing news on Coach Sparano’s termination,” running back Reggie Bush tweeted. “He’s a great coach and an even better man! He will be greatly missed.” In Sparano’s first season as an NFLhead coach, he led the Dolphins to a surprising 11-5 record, the 2008 AFC East title and their only playoff game since 2001. He departs with a record of 29-32. Shortly before he was fired, Sparano held his regular Monday news confe rence. When asked if he wanted to comment on reports he would be fired after the season, he said no. “I want to coach agains t the Buffalo Bills this week. That’s my sole focus,” he said. Sparano’s departure represents further dismantling of the regime built by Bill Parcells after he joined the Dolphins in late 2007, as they staggered to the end o f a 1-15 season. Ross took over as owner in early 2009, and Parcells turned control of football operations over to Ireland before last season. As in 2007, the Dolphins have issues at quarterback, in the offensive line and elsewhere. But Ross said the situation is not as bleak now. “Everybody recognizes there’s a great foundation here to build upon,” Ross said. “It’s not starting all over again. This isn’t the way the team was when Parcells came and they had to rebuild the entire roster.” winning season, should his MVPbe taken away or given back? In my mind, there is no doubt – of course it should. Stark points to history as his guide for saying it shouldn’t be, with his main caveat being that there is no precedent. There’s no precedent? That’s the reason he insists, “we cant spray-paint Ryan Braun’s name off the list of MVPaward winners. We can’t rip his nameplate off the trophy.” His follow up that, “we definitely can’t – and shouldn’t – hold a whole new MVPelection if his appeal gets denied and he’s sent away to serve 50 games of detention,” is a bit more palatable. But there’s no precedent ? How about this – step up and set one. It all has to start somewhere, and this seems the best time to do it. Stark then delves back into the steroid era, wondering what we would then have to do regarding past MVPs. The steroid era, of course, that he was a part of, covering the league, perhaps seeing signs and never did anything about. Olney did come out a couple years ago and finally admit that, as journalists of the era, they were as complicit and accountable as anyone for not bringing it to light. Nobody wanted to set a precedent then, and look where it got us. Well, it got us to here, with Ryan Braun possibly being caught right on the heels of a season in which he won the award. What’s past is passed, with many screw-ups that cannot be revisited or revised. We can look back now and know what went on and that, in itself, is what revises that history. But we don’t have to look back anymore, for it is right here in front of us. Perhaps an historical moment where a precedent can be set for all that follows. If there is no precedent for dealing with what is wrong, it would seem the thing to do is set one and make it right. Dan Hoehne is the Sports Editor of the News-Sun.

Jalen Seel hit a jumper and Louis scored in the paint to make it 46-38 before Faulk split a pair at the line. At this point, the Streaks were 6-of-9 at the line on the night, but would only go 6of-14 the rest of the way. The Seminoles then continued their climb back in with a pair at the line from Demari Grant and a James Barnes steal and score, making it 47-42. Cannon added a little breathing room with a drive, but Seel scored on consecutive possessions before Austin got inside for two to hold the lead at 51-46. But Ray hit a long two and Sebring missed two at the line. Larry Woodard then worked inside for two and Ray’s drive gave Southeast the lead at 52-51. Barnes scored again and the Streaks closed out the quarter with a missed free throw and a 54-51 deficit. Sebring would continue to battle and threaten at many points during the final eight minutes. ATaylor three-point play cut it to 59-58 at the 5:45 mark, but the Seminoles answered back. Down 64-62 with 2:50 remaining, a technical on the Southeast bench gave the Streaks a chance to tie it, but both free throws were missed. They would tie it, however, moments later when Jones slipped a nice pass to a cutting Cannon for two. But Louis grabbed an offensive rebound and scored and the Seminoles hit threeof-four free throws to make it 69-64. Taylor, though, converted another three-point play to cut it to 69-67 with 33 seconds left and, moments later, Faulk leapt to intercept the ensuing inbounds pass, fed it to Jones who found Taylor inside for the tying score. But in the waning moments, an off-balance Seel drove into a crowded lane and drew a foul that put him at the line with 4.4 seconds left. Amake of the first gave Southeast the one-point lead, and the miss of the second lead to the final sequence that left the Blue Streaks just short. “I’m proud of the way the guys didn’t quit,” Harris said. “We stayed in it until the end and gave ourselves chances. At times our offense was really clicking and we’re making progress with that. “We still have to tighten it up and continue to improve,” he continued. “This time of year, that’s really what we’re looking for, because for us, the season really starts January 6, when we get into the district schedule.” That would be a road date at Winter Haven to start the district slate, but before then the Streaks will continue their progress with a Thursday date at Lake Placid and a home game Thursday, Dec. 22, with Avon Park. Cannon lead Sebring with a game-high 21 points, with Taylor adding 18 and Austin 12. Ray had 20 for Southeast and Jean added 16.

Sebring was represented by Michael Weston, Donavan White, Anthony Powell, Dominique Leveridge, Kyle Yarbrough, Zach Howard, Aaron Hankerson and Damion Thompson. Weavers Green Dragon teammate Nick Swain was also named to the Central squad, as was Avon Parks J.D. Hardy. The first half saw several Central scoring chances, but four turnovers thwarted them and the South took a 3-0 lead into the half on a field goal by LaBelles David Antunez. Another Central turnover added to the South lead as an interception return for touchdown by Port Charlottes Robert Kubond made it 10-0. But the Centrals came storming back with a Zach Jenkins, from Frostproof, touchdown pass to Lake Christians Michael Wheary and two White field goals for a 13-10 lead in the fourth. But with one more chance, the South rose up. Hardee quarterback Colby Baker kept the ball on a sneak with under one minute to play for the game-winning score. South takes All-Star Classic The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Associated PressMIAMI — Aaron Rowand has agreed to a minor league contract with the Miami Marlins and will contend for a job as a backup outfielder. The 34-year-old Rowand hit .233 with four homers in 108 games for San Francisco last season. His best year was 2007, when he batted .309 with 27 homers and 89 RBIs as an All-Star for Philadelphia. Rowand, also a Gold Glove winner in 2007, was a key player for the Chicago White Sox when they won the 2005 World Series. If he is added to the 40man roster, Rowand will receive the major league minimum of $480,000, which would be offset from the $12 million he is owed in the final season of the $60 million, five-year deal the Giants released him from in September. In another move, the Marlins and infielder Donnie Murphy agreed to a $560,000, one-year contract. Rowand signs with Marlins

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK — The Avon Park Founders Garden Club has completed their annual community service project of decorating city hall for the holidays. Residents are encouraged to step inside city hall to see the old-fashioned Christmas trees and wreaths that the club made and displayed featuring the history of Avon Park. Contact Anita Helbig, president, at 452-1927 to donate working strings of white lights and garland for next year’s projects. And buy a calendar from the club to support Camp Wekiva scholarships. Betty Scott, a floral designer and an ex-president of the club, made two wreaths that are displayed on a wall which you can see if you go to city hall to pay your water bill. Jody Griffing will host the Club’s December Holiday Brunch at her home on the third Thursday in December (Dec. 15). Aworld traveler, Jody’s home is spectacularly decorated for Christmas with decorations from many countries. And hopefully, there’ll be singing by a Swee t Adelines quartet. And the food served will be wonderful.

They all looked so “Christmassy” in their red Santa hats and their official green shirts. Then to top the morning off, everyone received a free breakfast, all 94 of us. You could have as many pancakes as you could eat and this morning you could even have blueberries in them if you wanted and of course, I did. There also were sausage patties along with orange juice and coffee, so it’s a complete breakfast. The Monday morning coffee hour took place in a Christmas-decorated clubhouse. The hosts were Marcia and Mike Collier and Kitty and Jim Quartier. Peggy Sue Teague was the emcee and always does a good job. Peggy Sue introduced our manager, George Susco, and he told us that all the white fences in the park will be replaced; also, the washing machines in the laundry will be replaced. George says that he has a well-kept golf cart for sale at a very reasonable price. George’s plea was with the few who do not keep your place up. Please, wash the mold off your house, pull the weeds and pick up around your home. Blood pressure is taken the first Monday of each month before the coffee hour. The nurses on duty were Carol Oldham and Barbara Broadbent. Carol Noel read the names of three people who were hospitalized: Barbara Kelleher, Bruce Johnson and Henry Vander Bergh. Carol was sorry to tell us that Skip Tankin and Shirl Bauman have passed away. Let’s remember these friends in our prayers. Peggy Sue read the names of the people who had a birthday or anniversary, but no one was present. We were happy to welcome back Joan and Bernie Vladyka, though they drove through three snowstorms to get to Florida and Donna Skultety from Tennessee. Shirley Rose and Marilyn Cromer were selling tickets for the Christmas dinner to be held on Sunday, Dec. 25, at 4 p.m., for $6. You will receive ham with scalloped potatoes, baked beans, dinner rolls, desserts, coffee, tea and lemonade. Each couple is expected to bring a dish to pass such as a vegetable (hot or cold), cheeses, relishes, deviled eggs, or whatever enhances the meal. Nell TenBroeke will take your order for your name badge if you’re new or if you lost yours. Each name badge is $7. Diane Bennett is asking us to save our milk or water gallon jugs for the luminaries come Christmas Eve and to buy candles from her to put inside them. Thursday, Dec. 15, the Red Hatters of this park will have their monthly meeting and Christmas luncheon at noon at the Island View Restaurant. Anyone interested in joining the Tropical Harbor Red Hat Club should contact Peggy Sue Teague. The Harbor Lites Book Group will have their December meeting on Monday, Dec. 19, at 7 p.m., at the home of Susan Morgan and she is planning a surprise for us. Please let Susan know if you plan to attend. We will be discussing the book, “ALand Remembered” by Patrick D. Smith. The Ladies Lunch Out will be on Tuesday, Dec. 20, at the Sebring Lakeside Tearoom. The sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board at which time you may also sign up for the entree of your choice. Also on Tuesday, Dec. 20, the Mustangs will be going to the Sebring Airport Cafe at 11:30 a.m. Their sign-up sheet is also on the bulletin board. The men, the Mustangs, also go out to breakfast on the first Tuesday of the month at 8 a.m. This month, they went to the Lake Placid Family Restaurant on U.S. 27 and Charlie Price was happy to see that 17 men were in attendance. The Ladies Coffee Tuesday was set up by Carol Noel. There were 17 ladies present with three returnees: Shirley Deisler, Virginia Tharp and Lorna Hedydon. We sang “Happy Birthday” to Sandra Brown and Kathleen Margetts. It’s that time of year when so many things are going on, luncheons, dinners and the Christmas parade. Everything needs to be planned and discussed. On Thursday, Dec. 22, there will be caroling in the park. We meet at the clubhouse at 5 p.m. and receive our routes. After the caroling, we again gather in the clubhouse for hot chocolate and cookies. You are always welcome at the Bible class held at Joy Deans’home on Beekman Street. They are studying the book of Mark each Tuesday from 2-3:30 p.m. All ladies are welcome. Ever heard of “Inky Finger?” This is a group that makes greeting cards. They had their first meeting on Dec. 5 in the clubhouse. If you’re interested, contact Fran Buero. Wouldn’t it be fun to make your Christmas cards? Manna needs help in providing toys to 1,200 children in our area. There is a Manna box for new toys in the clubhouse. Have a heart. FRIENDS& NEIGHBORS Tropical Harbor Estates By Arlene Clouston Courtesy photo A group of Tanglewood ladies worked together to create Christmas gifts for those in need. Stockings were made from old Christmas cards and stuffed with candy. Cookies were baked and packaged in decorated bags. The ladies efforts will be donated to Little Lambs Prison Ministry for adult students in their classes; Grace House, which opened recently on Magnolia Avenue; Sebrings Free Will Baptist Ministry, which will provide food packages to 300 families; and Magnolia House for disadvantaged adults.

Ewing has returned to Dallas. With Larry Hagman reprising his role as the conniving Texas oilman, filming is underway a t locations all over the city for TNT’s new television series “Dallas,” which will also see the return o f Patrick Duffy as J.R.’s brother Bobby and Linda Gray as J.R.’s ex-wife Sue Ellen, along with a new generation of Ewings. And, of course, the spotlight also returns to the city itself, with its distinctive skyline rising from the prairie. “We’re trying to give the show a real sense o f place and Dallas has a real personality,” said location manager John Patterson, adding, “It’s a city tha t does things in a big way. That’s part of J.R. and par t of what we try to give the show — a sense of the city, which is big, very well done, shiny, new and looking toward the future.” TNThas ordered 10 episodes of the series, se t to air in summer 2012. Filming for the series, entirely shot in Dallas, began mid-October and is expected to wrap in late January. “There was just no way we were going to film anywhere else,” said executive producer Cynthia Cidre, who also wrote the pilot for the new series, a “mix of the old world and the new world.” The original series aired from 1978 to 1991. Dallas returns to city it made famous

C M Y K Meal planning doesn’t have to make you wring your hands, stomp yourfeet and cause you to order pizza in frustration. The solution issimple if you plan a little bit ahead, keep a perpetual grocery listgoing, utilize easy recipes and keep your pantry stockpiled. One trick that has always helped me in a pinch has been to make extraand freeze it. Casseroles are the ideal dish for the freezer as theymanage to hold up to the freezer beautifully without losing taste ortexture. So why not make one a week as part of your regular weekly menu planand double the recipe? Then you will have a stash of casseroles inyour freezer for another time. But let’s take this frozen casserole concept a step further. Alittlebit of planning for the future costs you nearly nothing in money andtime and allows you to reach out and help someone else. An extrafrozen casserole is easy stuff and could be a lifeline to a friend orrelative in need. Here’s a fabulous recipe (easily doubled!) with freezing tips included:Chicken and Artichoke CasseroleServes 4 5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut in 1-inch strips 1/4 cup unsalted butter 2 cloves garlic, pressed 1 cup sliced mushrooms 1 jarmarinated artichoke hearts, drained 2 tablespoons flour 1 (14.5-oz.) can low sodium chicken broth Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet over medium heat, brownchicken lightly in 2 tablespoons butter, add the garlic and mushroomsand keep cooking till chicken mixture is smelling very garlicky. Transfer browned chicken strips to a baking dish (for your extracasserole, use an aluminum pan that can be tossed after use); arrangeartichoke hearts on top. In the skillet, melt remaining butter and add the flour, whisking toblend (no lumps!). Add broth and cook until thickened then pour overchicken mixture. Bake the casserole, uncovered, at 350 degrees for about 30 to 45 minutes. Per Serving: 465 Calories; 20g Fat; 58g Protein; 12g Carbohydrate; 4g Dietary Fiber; 154mg Cholesterol; 673mg Sodium.Exchanges: 0 Grain(Starch); 7 1/2 Lean Meat; 1 1/2 Vegetable; 3 1/2 Fat. Points: 11 Serving suggestions: Serve over some brown rice and add a big green salad. Freezing instructions: After casserole has totally cooled, carefullyplace your casserole in a zipper-topped plastic freezer bag and removeall air before sealing. You can buy huge 1 1/2to 2-gallon bags thatare perfect for this. (Important note about freezer bags: This willaid in the casserole tasting fresh. Those bags are designed to takethe cold and regular bags are more permeable and will not keep yourfood as fresh) Next, mark the bag with what you made (Cathy’s Cheesy Casserole, forexample) and the date. Also, add the heating instructions – like Preheatoven to 350 degrees and cook for 35 minutes or until hot and bubbling,etc. Use a Sharpie pen for this task (it’s the only one that will holdup to the freezer without running. To keep your Sharpie from runningoff with the nearest child, hide your Sharpie in the freezer bagbox –that’s what I’d do or I’d never see it again. Remember: Thishiding place you will take to your grave – tell no one). To cook the casserole, remove from the freezer the night before andplace in the fridge to thaw overnight. By the time cooking time comes,it may not be completely thawed but that’s OK. You will most likelyneed to cook the casserole longer to reheat, but an easy way to dothat is give the original cooking time and add the caveat, or untilhot and bubbly. That’s saved me more than once. You may also want to check out our wonderful Freezer Menus. Justdefrost, cook, and eat.

I have been married for several years to a wonderful man, and we were recently blessed with our first child. Since our wedding, my relationship with my motherin-law has been an evolving one. Since the inception of “Desperate Housewives” on TV, she seems to believe she’s a character on the show. She trots around in revealing clothing looking like a streetwalker. She spends most of her time gossiping with her newfound buddies who are half her age, and who seem to delight in dressing her up to make her the talk of the town. As a little girl, when I dreamed of how my life would be as a married woman, it was never like this. My dreams never included a MILwho enjoys seeing people look at her in disbelief as she struts across the room. I don’t want this to be an example for my daughter. Confronting her doesn’t work – she responds with guilt and mockery. In other words, she always wins. I’m at a loss and have given up trying to figure her out. Please help. – Desperate Housewife DearDesperate: As an educated woman, it’s time for you to smarten up and accept your mother-in-law for the “character” she is – warts and all. You were wrong to expect her to fulfill the fantasy role you created for her. She’s not ready to do it – and she may never be. The way she dresses will not influence your daughter; you will do that. Your mother-in-law’s attire is a reflection only on her, not you. Remember that. If she is so youthful in spirit that she has been accepted by a younger group of women, stop judging her and perhaps even learn from it. She’s not over the hill yet. So stop trying to push her there, and you’ll both be happier. DearAbby: My husband, “Joe,” and I have been married for 12 years. I have a daughter from a previous marriage and he has a son from a previous relationship. My daughter is married and lives in another state. My 22-year-old stepson, “Junior,” lives with us. He has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and has stolen from us. I recently discovered that another item of mine was missing. I told Joe it has to stop – that I can’t live like a prisoner in my own home. Joe will not kick Junior out of the house. Joe said he would leave, but that he won’t put Junior out on the street like a dog. Our marriage was solid until Junior’s problems started a year ago. I’d never ask my husband to make a choice. Junior is his son. I, on the other hand, feel like a stranger in my own home. We barely speak now and have been sleeping in separate rooms. I am at a loss. Abby, have you any advice? – Stranger in My Own Home DearStranger: Yes. You and your husband should consult a therapist who specializes in treating addictions. Your husband loves his son, but he is enabling him to continue using by turning a blind eye to his stealing and not enforcing consequences. Sometimes love has to be tough. Because your marriage has deteriorated to the point that you no longer speak or share a bedroom, recognize that you must look out for your own welfare because your husband seems unwilling or unable to.

Lohan made the comments in the January-February issue of Playboy magazine, which features mostly nude photos and a brief story about the starlet. Pictures leaked online Friday, prompting the magazine to release the issue early on its website. The story refers to Lohan’s infamous bad behavior — including two drunken driving arrests, five jail sentences and five rehab stints — as youthful misadventures. Lohan returns to court Wednesday to update a judge on her compliance with strict new probation requirements that include working at a morgue. Honolulu police say Lohan reported a bag stolen from a vehicle early Sunday morning. The bag was recovered, but its contents are missing.Alec Baldwin apologizes to himself on SNLNEWYORK — Posing as the airline pilot of the flight he was kicked off of, Alec Baldwin apologized to himself on “Saturday Night Live.” The actor appeared on the sketch program’s “Weekend Update” on Saturday night to lampoon Tuesday’s incident, in which he was kicked of an American Airlines flight for refusing to stop playing a mobile phone game before takeoff. As a Southern, mustachioed airline pilot, Baldwin issued an apology for the incident. The joke, though, was how obvious the ploy was. Lohan says she should have listened to advisers
