According to a press release from the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office, Friday’s search stemmed from the investigation of a dog fight that was discovered Dec. 6 on High Ave. Four people were arrested and 16 dogs were rescued from that location. Friday’s investigation was at 207 Atterbury Drive in Sebring. The 29 dogs found there bring the total up to 45. Captain Tim Lethbridge of the HCSO’s Criminal Investigations Unit complimented Highlands County Animal Control on their assistance with transporting and housing the dogs. “Throughout this case, animal control has played a significant role in the investigation, recovery and care of the dogs,” he said. “They have been very accommodating in dealing with the large number of dogs we ended up with.” Quandra Brown-Sims, 29, of 4807 High Ave. in Sebring was taken into custody Dec. 13 on charges of causing a cruel death pain and suffering to animals, use of an animal to fight or bait and owning o r 29 more dogs rescued from fighting ring Total up to 45 after search on Atterbury Drive See MORE, page 7A Courtesy photo First place in the Lake Placid home decorating contest is 136 Melanie in Oak Island.

Results are in for LP decoration contest Lights are a sight By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — County Commissioners went into executive session on Tuesday to discuss a settlement offer in the whistleblower lawsuit filed by former Solid Waste Director Ken Wheeler. At 10:31 a.m., the board cleared the meeting chambers and clipped the audio feed to the streaming website, but left the video rolling as they discussed litigation costs for Wheeler’s case against the county. The executive session was supposed to last just 30 minutes, but it was an hour. The regular meeting resumed at 11:55 a.m. and the commission took a quick five-minute break before resuming the action agenda. “It went over the time limit I estimated. I guess I need to estimate more time,” County Attorney Ross Macbeth said. Since the settlement document was already public record, it was unclear why the board had to have an executive session, but a complete transcript of the meeting will be public record after the court case is closed. The settlement documents show that Wheeler is requesting $97,867.38 in payments to cover 11 months of back pay, deductions and retirement contributions. The settlement offer also directs the county insurance to cover an additional $25,000 to Wheeler’s attorneys and $7,486.86 in FICA/Medicare payments fo r Wheeler lawsuit closer to settlement Proposed deal would cost county $130,000 See WHEELER, page 6A Ready to shineTwo BLue Streaks among FACAAll-Stars playing tonight SPORTS, 1B By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — Commissioners discussed a new policy Tuesday that bans all tobacco use on all county property including boat ramps, parks, trails and the sports complex, which will roll ou t in three phases starting Jan. 1 2012. “It is tobacco free.

C M Y K salary and the new teacher evaluation system. This first of two articles explains the union’s concerns regarding the evaluation process. Afollow-up article on Sunday will discuss the union’s position on salaries. Highlands County has been in the forefront of developing a new teacher and school administrator evaluation system. In addition, it had committed itself to developing a new system before the state legislature created statute 736 mandating that happen, Picklesimer said. He added that School Superintendent Wally Cox had made the union a partner in the process, including it in meetings with the nine other counties working with the Gate Grant, as well as the Heartland Educational Consortium. There were meetings, Picklesimer said, where he was the only union representative present. “We were in what I thought was a high level collaboration, and had an extremely close relationship ... like (that of a) husband and wife, a relationship you counted on. All of a sudden, overnight, the person you were partnered with just changed. We had a spat.” The district asked the school board to place the evaluation system’s specifics into the district’s instructional performances appraisal guidelines document, which is outside the teacher’s contract. This would give the district control in the future. They attempted to do this using an emergency item on the school board’s agenda, and without warning. School Board attorney John McClure told the board this was an unfair labor practice, and it was withdrawn. “You can challenge what is outside the contract,” Picklesimer said, and file a grievance, “but you can no longer sit down at the table and discuss the intricacies of procedure, and help construct it.” This is critical in the union’s opinion, because so much rides on a teacher’s evaluation – especially as any teacher hired after July 1, 2011 will only be offered an annual contract. An unsuccessful evaluation, therefore, can end a teacher’s career. “We all understand this is a public business,” Picklesimer said, “that our doors are open ... I feel parents should come to my class anytime they want. “I feel my administrators should come to my classroom any time they want, but when they’re coming to do their evaluation, come and check and see what you are actually doing. I would prefer, since it is going to be formal, that it also come with a notice (as to day and time) that way the teacher can make sure we’re doing what we have to do to make the evaluation complete and successful (as opposed to having scheduled a test, for example). “These components have to be negotiated — how you get evaluated, the number of times, how long you have before they actually come,” Picklesimer said. There is an additional complication. Teachers are evaluated in two ways (each valued as half of the final score) — the classroom observation and student growth — as measured through testing. “Both the school board and union agree the student growth piece has flaws,” Picklesimer said, which is why he feels teachers must continue to have a voice. The union is particularly upset at the effort to separate the evaluation process from the contract, because the union had agreed to a temporary agreement regarding it when $1.1 million of Race To The Top money was at risk due to a Sept. 30 deadline. “All we did was put in a stopgap, that’s all that it was. Just there to allow us (to meet that critical deadline). “So we have a very sticky situation. We have an evaluation process that needs to be fair. The process has to be negotiated and it needs to be memorialized in contract. “If we can’t get there, then we are in impasse.” Page 2ANews-SunWednesday, December 21, 2011www.newssun.com pub block; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block; 0 0 0 0 8 0 3 4 Dec. 17 62140465152x:2Next jackpot $49 millionDec. 14 13493338x:5 Dec. 10 31922283437x:4 Dec. 19 3481828 Dec. 18 1416172436 Dec. 17 616212425 Dec. 16 315182021 Dec. 19 (n) 9215 Dec. 19 (d) 8892 Dec. 18 (n) 1442 Dec. 18 (d) 1880 Dec. 19(n) 122 Dec. 19 (d) 505 Dec. 18(n) 183 Dec. 18 (d) 713 Dec. 16 42128449 Dec. 13 162729427 Dec. 9 3613343 Dec. 6 2022344220 Dec. 17 1328495159 PB: 33 PP: 4Next jackpot $104 millionDec. 14 224465256 PB: 19 PP: 5 Dec. 10 419334159 PB: 9 PP: 5 Note: Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day: (d) is the daytime drawing, (n) is the nighttime drawing.

For the past 28 years, the FSAhas worked with community partners, organizations and business to provide a memorable holiday season for less fortunate kids in the community. Executive director of the FSARobert Saffold works each year to ensure needy children are not left out during the holiday season. Saffold is proud of what the association has done over the last two decades and looks forward to continuing the tradition. “I have been involved in providing activities for the your of our community for the last 29 years. These golfers in this community took this opportunity to form this organization (FSA) and it is our way to offer unique, effective ways of fighting poverty,” said Saffold. Saffold and FSA’s approach to instill an education, knowledge and opportunity in children in the community has been the backbone of the entire operation from conception. “Our vision is that every child in the Heartland area will grow into a healthy, informed, educated and self-reliant adult. We must continue to find effective ways to consistently support this vision,” Saffold said. The Christmas shopping spree provides two children per family with a holiday gift card that the kids are able to spend. The focus is on necessities, like clothing and toothbrushes, not toys. The program works only with the help of sponsors. Businesses, organizations or individuals participate in the shopping spree by sponsoring a child. “We try to give each child $60. We get a special discount and a tax break at the store and it allows the money to go a little further,” Saffold said. On Friday, the children are able to meet Santa Claus and enjoy a little holiday cheer as they receive their gift cards. Then on Christmas Eve the children are taken to the Sebring K-Mart to purchase items. “Its a good program,” said Saffold. “We have hundreds of kids, nearly 300 the last few years. They get to meet Santa and it’s just a fun day.” K-Mart designates a special check-out section for the young shoppers in order to provide a safe and enjoyable shopping experience away from the shuffle of last-minute gift buyers on Christmas Eve. The FSAis still accepting sponsors for the Christmas shopping spree program. Sponsorships are $60 each (or more) and go directly to the disadvantaged children. Contact Saffold at 3815166 FSA to help kids get gifts Continued from page 1A Teachers have issues with evaluation process So we have a very sticky situation.

C M Y K W e hope that we live in a civilized society, but that may be stretching hope too far when it comes to those who promote dog fighting.In the summer of 2007, Michael Vick, well-known quarterback for the Falcons, was indicted for promoting dog fighting. The whole nation was put on notice then that dog fighting is illegal. Recent arrests show that some here in Highlands County did not get the message — dog fighting is not j ust illegal, it is also cruel and a very repulsive act for most people. Despite Whoopi Goldberg’s defense of Michael Vick, dog fighting is not a southern culture thing. It’s just plain wrong, like harming a small child for fun. Innocent animals are maimed and killed for the enjoyment and profit of sick individuals; that’s what makes it wrong. Using small pets as “bait” is often how a fighting dog is trained to kill. Think about that — your small, cute family dog comes up missing, and is never found again because it is shoved in a trash can after it was killed by a trained fighter. All the while, someone standing around the tire ring watching was having fun. That is not entertainment that any normal human would want to see. Think about the training. The dogs are detained by large heavy chains to build strength, and are often starved to make them hungry enough to kill. Those dogs who show promise as a fighter have to survive injuries in order to prove they are tough enough to survive. Those who do not show promise are, in the best case scenario, placed out on the street as strays, or quickly killed because they are a liability to profits. But even if these animals are rescued, the pain continues. Once a dog is trained, as in the case of the 16 that were seized by the HCSO, they are often too dangerous to get adopted out to loving families and have to be either shipped off to people specifically trained to handle them or put to sleep. In short, dog fighting is nothing but a barbaric blood sport invented to fulfill the sick need for violence of cowardly and insecure individuals. It is morally wrong and inhumane. And the rest of us have to clean up the mess when it’s all said and done. Ironic how those who hate the sport have to pay for those who practice it.

Consider: In the basement of any kid’s home you’ll find once-trendy, dust-collecting gadgets that are no longer played with. So I was delighted to stumble across a Wired magazine article by Jonathan Liu that ranked “The 5 Best Toys of All Time.” First up: the stick, a simple branch or hunk of wood you can find in your own backyard. Though doing so is no longer acceptable today, when I was a kid I made several slingshots out of sticks that could fire a small rock a long way. I also tried whittling a flute once with a Swiss Army knife, but that was before kids did jail time for getting caught with any kind of a blade. Which brings us to Wired’s second-best toy of all time: the box. Boy, did we love a good box in the ‘70s. We used the box that a giant, new refrigerator came in to make a fort out back. It was a terrific structure — until the first rain came along and our father made us drag it to the curb for garbage pickup. One of the great ironies of modern times is that no matter what trendy toy you buy your kids, you’ll soon find them playing with the box it came in. Here’s Wired’s third-best toy: string. Though Wired says kids can use it to hang things from doorknobs, make leashes for stuffed animals or play Cat’s Cradle, I don’t recall having any interest in such things. The magazine is right about tying a long piece of string to two empty cans. When the string had tension, one can would carry your voice to the other can several feet away. So cool is this still, I’ll bet today’s average kids would set down their smartphones for hours while trying to perfect the can-string audio. Which brings us to Wired’s fourth-best choice: the cardboard tube. The little tubes that hold toilet paper or paper towels were always great fun. Wetaped them together to create little horns, which we could toot out of — they had the faint sound of a kazoo — until our father couldn’t take it anymore. The best tubes, ever, were the kind that architects carried their drawings around in. They were hard to find, but would pop up occasionally when some architect dad would toss it in the garbage. With some aluminum foil or small mirrors, some tape and a pair of scissors, an architect’s tube could be made into a periscope, allowing us kids to see around doorways and into windows from three or more feet away. Top that, Apple Inc.! That brings us to Wired’s fifth-best choice: dirt. In my early years, despite being warned by my mother to avoid dirt, the only thing I loved more than rolling around in it was rolling around in mud puddles after a rainstorm. Could you imagine how much less stressed Americans would be if we rolled around in dirt and mud puddles at least once every week? In any event, there is a moral to this toy story, I believe. Despite all the trendy gadgets that clutter the basement in every kid’s home, kids are still drawn to the most fundamental playthings — simple things that allow them to imagine and discover on their own. Hasn’t America become just as cluttered with trendy concepts and wasteful ideas? Doesn’t our country need to discard that clutter and get back to the basic fundamentals that work? Heck, the best things in life really are simple and free — beginning with the best toys.

Email Tom at Purcell@caglecartoons.com. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the NewsSun staff. Toy story: back to the basics Guest Column Tom Purcell Not the right time to be askingEditor: The story in Friday’s News-Sun regarding the pay negotiations between the School District and the Highlands County Education Association was very interesting. I can’t help but think that now is not the best time to ask county taxpayers to fund a raise when Highlands County has double digit unemployment. In addition, the median teacher salary in Highlands County is $44,017 per year. This is higher than Polk, Hardee and Desoto counties. This is in a county that the average wage is $29,000 per year. This income disparity, coupled with the fact that most people are more concerned with finding work or keeping a j ob, may cause the public to be less than supportive of the teachers’ demands. It goes without saying that there are many teachers that are of great value to our community. There are many who deserve more pay. In this economy, however, it sure would build goodwill with the beleaguered taxpayers if the teachers union would wait to ask for raises until the economy improves. D.B. Orr Avon Park A young dogs death unnecessaryEditor: Late Sunday afternoon a young frightened dog was run over on U.S. 27 in front of ABC Liquors. I had seen the dog running south along the right of way parallel to the highway and immediately pulled into a parking lot to make my way down to her. When I got past some bushes blocking my view, I was horrified to find her dead in the road. Whoever hit her, were you not paying attention to the road as you should have been? She was easy to see from a distance. Did you see her and just didn’t care or have sense enough to slow down in case she ran out in front of you? And when you hit her, you didn’t even bother to stop to see if she was still alive. Shame on you! Had I not pulled her out of the road, the approaching traffic that had been stopped at the stoplight down the road would have surely run her over – again and again and again. Even as I pulled her lifeless body from the road, the oncoming cars didn’t appear to slow down. It seems the majority of drivers on the road today are distracted and dangerous, and/or in too much of a hurry to show common sense or common courtesy. How many innocent animals – and people – have to die because someone can’t travel from one destination to another without texting, talking on the phone, eating, fiddling with the radio, etc., when their full attention should be on the road and their surroundings? Kathy S. Doerr SebringThe cost of a winning smileEditor: Let’s talk about teeth. In addition to using them to chew and eat or to project a winning smile, teeth can also be a source of pain, both physical and financial. My first trip to the dentist started in 1955 when I was 6 years old. In “those days” you did not get Novocain for a filling (too much money) and sometimes, as my husband experienced, you didn’t get Novocain for a root canal. Hard to believe? Imagine my surprise to find a dental practice and lab solely dedicated to pulling teeth and dentures. Of course I could not find it (next to the old Publix in Avon Park), but when I finally did I couldn’t believe my luck. But let’s back track. As I was going out the door to an oral surgeon ($350 a tooth) my neighbor called and told me about Dr. Saunders in Avon Park. They fit me in even though they had a full house. When I met Dr. Saunders (Marc), he told me he was not an oral surgeon but an RD. I asked him what an RD was and he said regular dentist. I said how many teeth do you pull in a week, 2025? I thought I’d rather go to an RD that had lots of experience pulling teeth. But now for the good part. Even though he was very good and the staff was awfully nice, it only cost $145. Dr. Saunders thinks helping people afford good dentistry is a winning occupation. He says he feels very rewarded when patients express their gratitude, especially after pulling their teeth. They also have affordable dentures so those of us can now smile with confidence who before could not afford to. Thanks Dr. S for helping out the Highlands County community. Because of you people could say they were happier. Gail Leavitt Sebring EDITORIALPAGEPOLICYMake sure to sign your letter and include your address and phone number.

Martin, a 2004 APHS graduate, was killed in an auto accident on his way to work in October 2009. His 26th birthday would have been Christmas Eve. Martin, whose picture also hangs above the room door, was remembered for his dedication to the ROTC and as a member of the Army National Guard.

Martin honored at APHS BRYAN, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a family of four from Georgia, plus the pilot’s brother, were killed when their single engine plane crashed in central Texas. The Piper Saratoga aircraft crashed just before 10 p.m. Monday in stormy weather. The flight originated in Atlanta, stopped in Jackson, Miss., and was headed for Waco, Texas, when it crashed in a rural field in Brazos County, north of Bryan and College Station. Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Tom Vinger says the dead include 33-year-old Michael D. Butler; his 34year-old wife Kelly; their 14-year-old daughter Brooke; and son Braden, age 2. They came from Stockbridge, Georgia. Also killed was the pilot’s brother, 37-yearold David Butler, of Mount Clam, Texas. Investigators do not yet know the cause of the crash. 5 killed in plane crash

Wheeler filed suit after he was placed on administrative leave for insubordination in August 2010 by former County Administrator Michael Wright and then terminated in September of 2010 by County Administrator Ricky Helms. Wheeler claimed in his lawsuit he was a “whistleblower” and that he was terminated because he pointed out $6.8 million in solid waste funds that were moved out of that account illegally by Wright and Helms. Wright was terminated by the commission for unrelated issues, and Helms was named acting administrator before he fired Wheeler. Helms claimed Wheeler was terminated because he “intimidated employees” by video taping meetings, failed to “turn over his proper time sheets” and “failed to comply with written or verbal instructions,” Helms wrote in his termination letter. On Jan. 28, Wheeler filed suit in the 10th Judicial Circuit against the county through his attorneys, Peter Helwig and Kathryn Piscitelli. Wheeler claimed that Florida Statute 403.706 says solid waste fees collected are to be used for solid waste management only, not to shore up a lacking general fund. Wheeler’s suit claimed that he was only terminated after he brought the illegal activity to the attention of the Florida Chief Inspector General and Florida Attorney General.

Phase 2 also begins on Jan. 1 of 2012, and includes all fire stations, the landfill, all libraries and community centers. Phase 3, whose roll out date is to be announced, includes all county property like parks, boat ramps and trails. “How are you going to enforce this?” asked Commissioner Ron Handley. Fisher replied that enforcement would depend on county employees reporting other employees and violators. “It is not going to go flawless, there are probably going to be gray areas. But this is the right thing,” said Highlands County Health Department Administrator Robert Paluszak. The policy also forced potential county employees to sign an affidavit stating they have refrained from tobacco use for up to a year prior to applying to the county. Fisher even discussed other counties that drug test for tobacco use prior to applying for a county position. Commissioner Don Elwell took exception with that section of the policy. “I think this section is unnecessary,” Elwell said. Elwell further argued that the new policy could “severely limit” the county’s application pool for employees. “We are trying to enforce actions before they are even employees,” Elwell added. “The idea behind that policy is to improve the risk pool of your insurance policy,” County Attorney Ross Macbeth told the commissioners. Macbeth clarified further that the if an applicant was tobacco free for up to a year before applying for a county position, then that would lower the county’s insurance costs over time. The policy further states that the county will provide tobacco cessation programs to the employees who request it, and the health departments are currently offering free nicotine patches and a five-week cessation program at no cost for the public.

C M Y K There’s an old saying, “don’t blame the messenger.” Though in today’s media landscape, I think that old adage needs to be tweaked. So much has been made of Tim Tebow and his winning ways that something has been lost and misconstrued. In defense of his own quarterback, Cam Newton, Carolina Panther wide receiver Steve Smith seemed to go on the attack of Tebow himself. “If Tebow is standing next to me I would tell it to his face – come check me out in five years, Jack, and you’ll know who’s the best quarterback,” was Smith’s main quote in the story. Which kind of gave me a quick chuckle. In the sense that, um, well, did Tebow himself ever proclaim to be a better quarterback than anyone? No, but of course this is where today’s media becomes somewhat the tail wagging the dog. So many talking heads on the sports talk shows make so much of Tebow,that the source is lost on people like Smith. Don’t think he’s as good, all-around, as your own quarterback? That’s fine, and good for you for sticking up for your guy. Smith’s later analysis was right on as well, suggesting that Newton currently is a more complete package at the quarterback position, showing much better accuracy to go along with arm strength and a strong running ability. The stats back it up, and that’s fine. But tell that to the talking SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, December 21, 2011 NASCAR This Week3B Courtesy photo Avon Park girls golf coach Suzy Gentry, left, and Lady Devil golfers Lindsey Moffat and Shannon Miranda were featured guests on Ed Lynchs Sports TalkŽ show on Saturday, Dec. 17.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING – Aspirited group of 35 runners turned out for the annual Joe Jenkins Time Prediction 5K Run/Walk at Highlands Hammock State Park on Saturday. Jenkins is a former park ranger who is battling Lou Gherig’s disease. The funds raised, which turned out to be in excess of $1,600, will benefit Joe and his family. “I could not think of a better way to stage a holiday event than to benefit Joe,” event director Chit Brojek said. “That was the comment of many of the participants. “We hope that our efforts make the holidays a little brighter for the Jenkins family.” The unique format of the prediction run is to see how close someone comes to predicting the time it will take for them to cover the 3.1-mile distance. No speed is required and, of course, no watches were allowed. Janice Steves turned out to have the best prediction, finishing just 16 seconds over the time of 50 minutes she had put down pre-race. Sandra Lueth was nearly as good, finishing 17 seconds off her prediciton, while Tina Grimes was 19 seconds off. Rounding out the top five were Mike Stewart and Gary Walker who were both 29 seconds off, with Stewart coming in 29 seconds faster than his prediction and Walker 29 seconds behind. The top 15 won medals for the accuracy of their time predictions. See Page 4B for order of finish. Joe Jenkins 5K Time Prediction goes to Steves By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt is the precipice of Florida prep football, from an individual standpoint, tonight’s 57th Annual Florida Athletic Coaches Association Football All-Star Classic. It brings together the top senior talent from throughout the state, right here to Highlands County when it kicks off at 6:30 p.m. at Firemen’s Field. Players began arriving in town over the weekend to the Kenilworth Lodge and have been kept busy both on the practice field and about town with events ranging from meet-and-greets, bowling and banquets. Much like its’brethren event, the FACABaseball All-Star Classic which has called Sebring home for over two decades, a listing of former participants is a who’s who of professional players. From retired legends Emmitt Smith, Deion Sanders and Warren Sapp, to current stars such as Anquan Boldin and Andre Johnson. And while the big names arrive, this is also an event where names can be made, as Blue Streaks Anthony Powell and Damion Thompson will be suiting up among the state’s elite. Powell, a blanket-coverage, big-play defensive back, battles the perception that his size might be a drawback – even with six interceptions on the season and a 4.38 time in the 40. “I was a little nervous heading into practice, but after doing one-on-ones I gained a lot of assurance that I fit in,” Powell said. “I feel good about the game and I’m comfortable with the defensive scheme. “I understand why size is such a concern, but with my work ethic I make up for my size,” he continued. “I feel like I will have a solid game. I don't feel like I was blessed with this opportunity to mess it up.” He can also take solace from another area player of similar physical stature, Nickell Robey of Frostproof, Powell, Thompson anxious as FACA kicks off tonight ‘ I gained a lot of assurance that I fit in. ’ANTHONYPOWELL Sebringcornerback See FACA, Page 4B By MIKE FITZPATRICK Associated PressNEWYORK — After losing a pair of aces in the last two years, the Texas Rangers are going global to land a new one. Winner of consecutive ALpennants, Texas also won the Yu Darvish sweepstakes Monday night with a record bid of $51.7 million. Now, the Rangers get 30 days to negotiate a contract with Darvish that would put Japan’s best pitcher at the top of their rotation. “Obviously, it’s a very exciting night for our organization, our fans and our community,” general manager Jon Daniels said on a conference call. Major League Baseball announced that the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters of Japan’s Pacific League accepted the highest bid for Darvish. That sealed offer was submitted under the posting system by the Rangers. “Our ownership went the extra mile on this one,” Daniels said, declining to reveal specifics. Aperson familiar with the details said the winning bid by Texas was $51.7 million — more than the $51.1 million posting fee the Boston Red Sox paid for Daisuke Matsuzaka in 2006. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the figure was not made public. Yahoo Sports and The New York Times reported the amount first. Darvish is considered the best pitcher in the Japanese professional leagues and several of baseball’s biggest spenders were thought to be interested in him. If the Rangers can close the deal, the 25-year-old right-hander would join a rotation that already includes five starters: Colby Lewis, Der ek Holland, Matt Harrison, Alexi Ogando and forme r closer Neftali Feliz, moved out of the bullpen when the club signed free-agen t reliever Joe Nathan this offseason. “If we’re able to sign him (Darvish), then we’ll have a very good problem on ou r hands,” Daniels said. It’s a dynamic endeavo r for the Rangers, buoyed by a lucrative television contract and back-to-back AL championships under a new ownership group led by Chuck Greenberg and his partner, Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan. But the team is still chasing its first World Series title — and Texas knows all too well that nothing is done until it is done. Despite a serious effort, the Rangers were unable to re-sign star pitcher Clif f Lee following the 2010 season. They made it back to the World Series anyway and were within one strike o f winning it all — twice — before the St. Louis Cardinals rallied to take the Rangers win negotiating rights to Darvish Getty Images photo Texas won the rights to negotiate a deal with Japanese ace Yu Darvish.

C M Y K By NANCYARMOUR Associated PressAbby Wambach, whose thunderous header in the final seconds of the Women’sWorld Cup quarterfinals led the U.S. to an improbable victory and sparked a nationwide frenzy rarely seen for women’s sports, has been voted the 2011 Female Athlete of the Year. The 31-year-old forward won the award handily, receiving 65 of the 214 votes cast by members of The Associated Press. Teammate Hope Solo (38 votes) was a distant second and UConn basketball player Maya Moore (35) was third. Wambach is the first individual soccer player — man or woman — to win one of the AP’s annual athlete awards, which began in 1931. The U.S. women’s team won in 1999, when their World Cup triumph at the Rose Bowl transfixed the nation. “We, as a team, did something that no team since Mia Hamm was able to do,” Wambach told the AP. “Even the team that won the (Olympic) gold medal in 2008 wasn’t able to inspire and get people excited about women’s soccer. It goes to show you the impact drama can bring.” Wambach’s four goals in Germany give her 13 in three World Cup appearances. That’s the most by an American, topping Michelle Akers by one, and puts her third on the alltime World Cup scoring list behind Brazil’s Marta and Germany’s Birgit Prinz. The 31-year-old ranks third on the U.S. career scoring list with 125 goals, trailing only Mia Hamm (158) and Kristine Lilly (130). “When she’s on top of her game,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said, “she's one of the best in the world.” Wambach was certainly at her best at the World Cup, leading the Americans to the final, where they lost to Japan on penalty kicks. Follow Nancy Armour at http://www.twitter.com/nrarmour By RACHELCOHEN Associated PressNEWYORK — The Super Bowl will be streamed online and to mobile phones for the first time. The NFLsaid Tuesday that NBC’s broadcasts of wild card Saturday, the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl would be available on the league’s and network’s websites and through Verizon’s NFL Mobile app. The package will include additional camera angles, ingame highlights and live stats. NBC already streams its “Sunday Night Football” telecasts online and to Verizon phones. The Super Bowl is Feb. 5 in Indianapolis. Last season’s PackersSteelers matchup drew a record U.S. audience for any show with 111 million viewers. trophy. Then the Rangers lost their latest ace, C.J. Wilson, when the left-hander agreed to a $77.5 million, five-year contract with the ALWest rival L.A. Angels this month. “Our commitment of our ownership is to put the best team out there. The last couple of years we just haven’t been able to close it out,” Daniels said. Bidding for the posting fee closed last Wednesday, and the Ham Fighters had until 5 p.m. ESTon Tuesday to accept. The fee will be paid only if a contract agreement is reached with Darvish’s agents, Arn Tellem and Don Nomura. If no deal is finalized, Darvish returns to the Fighters for another season. Two months ago, the Rangers let a championship slip away. They don’t want the same thing to happen with Darvish. In a statement released before the conference call, the Rangers said they were “pleased and excited” to win the rights to negotiate with Darvish. “Our organization has scouted Mr. Darvish for the last several years and has been very impressed with his abilities and accomplishments. We believe he would be a great addition to the Texas Rangers pitching staff,” the team said. “We look forward to beginning the next step of this process in the very near future.” Darvish, the son of an Iranian father and a Japanese mother, went 18-6 with a 1.44 ERAlast season. He had 276 strikeouts to lead the Pacific League. The Fighters gave him approval to negotiate with a major league club through the posting system. Matsuzaka and Ichiro Suzuki went to the majors under the same system. Darvish pitched in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and was a member of the Japanese national team that won the 2009 World Baseball Classic. The 6-foot-5 Darvish has superb control and throws seven effective pitches. It’s expected he would make a front-line major league starter, though the MLB track record of Japanese aces is shaky. “Darvish is the No. 1 pitcher in Japan, but we want him to become the ace of the world,” Nippon Ham team representative Toshimasa Shimada said this month. Darvish turned pro in 2005 at 18. His professional career got off to a rocky start when he was caught smoking in a pachinko parlor on an off day during his first spring training, despite not being old enough to legally smoke nor to gamble at the time. In 2007, Darvish won the Eiji Sawamura Award presented to the top pitcher in Japanese professional baseball after posting a 15-5 record with a 1.82 ERAand a league-leading 210 strikeouts.

Thompson, a dual threat at running back and linebacker, similarly faces the perception of his stature as, at a shade under 6-feet and trim build, he doesn’t have the initial look of a big-time player. But anyone who has seen tacklers bounce off of him while carrying the ball, or witnessed the jarring hits he lays on runners, would say otherwise. “I’m just honored to be invited to play in this game,” Thompson said. “Everyone here is a good athlete and to be invited to join really makes me feel good and let’s me know I’m capable of competing with them. “I hope to make some big plays in this game,” he continued. “To help my team win and open up the opportunity for more scholarships.” Tonight will be the true test, the ultimate opportunity, with Powell and Thompson having t he chance to put it all out there on the big stage, among the best the state has to offer.

Aim your hostility at them. Had Smith replaced Tebow’s name with, say, ESPN’s “First Take” megaphone analyst Skip Bayless in his verbal attack it would make a lot more sense and been much more appropriate. Bayless is a loud and proud Tebow backer, along with millions nationwide. And though he’s never directly said, to my knowledge, that Tebow is better than Newton, I’m sure he’s pointed to the won-loss record for each as comparison a few times. I personally don’t have a stake in this claim, not being from Florida, not having been a Gator. I did live near Denver for a couple years and have always liked the Broncos, but my thoughts toward Tebow were always rather luke-warm. And I’ll admit, while I root for his improvement and was initially caught up in the wave of excitement and disbelief as to how he kept pulling out those wins – how three quarters of a subpar QB could suddenly keep morphing into a ProBowl type signal caller in the fourth quarter was mystifying. But as the weeks have passed, it has gotten a bit trying that every show continues to either lead with Tebow or spends the bulk of their time on Tebow discussions. Early on, I’d get angry at the bashing. Now I’m getting somewhat annoyed at all of it, both the praise and criticism. But the one thing that has stood out is Tebow himsel f. Not the player, but the person. He seems indifferent to all the swirling hype. He consistently praises his teammates and the only time he refers to himself is to acknowledge that he needs to continue to improve. And that’s why I got tha t chuckle from Smith’s comment. Why the need for him to have to tell Tebow to his face that Newton is a bette r quarterback? Tebow himself would likely agree. After all, the message you perceived never came from Tebow at all. It came from the messen ger, and that’s who is to blame. Dan Hoehne is the Sports Editor of the News-Sun. He can be reached at daniel.hoehne@newssun.com.

By ARNIE STAPLETON Associated PressENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Ayear ago, John Elway agreed to another comeback with his beloved Denver Broncos shortly after the ouster of Josh McDaniels, whom many felt had doomed the franchise to mediocrity for the foreseeable future. The Hall of Famer has pulled all the right strings in rapidly reversing the team’s fortunes. And for all those fans worried that he’s not completely sold on Tim Tebow and might put the unorthodox quarterback on the trading block this winter, relax. Elway said the city’s new comeback king isn’t going anywhere. In an interview with The Associated Press, Elway gave his strongest indication yet that he believes Tebow can morph into the pocket passer needed fo r long-term success in the NFL, which suggests he won’t be spending a high draft pick on another QB.

C M Y K Page 8BNews-SunWednesday, December 21, 2011www.newssun.com December is International Volunteer Month. Go to http://pledge5.starbucks.com to find an organization near you to give the gift of five hours of your time this month. Teach your kids about other cultures and help kids at the same time. Hearts4Hearts Girls are dolls that each come with a story about their life in India, Belarus, Ethiopia or many other places. The company partners with World Vision, a nonprofit that provides food to hungry kids in the U.S., clean water and malaria nets to families in Africa, and schoolbooks and health education to children in Asia. See more at www.hearts4heartsgirls.com. Get your children involved in Milk + Bookies at www.milkandbookies.org. Sure, you read to your own kids, but at Milk + Bookies events, boys and girls can encourage other kids to read by selecting, purchasing and inscribing books that are donated to their peers who do not have access to books of their own. The events feature music, story time and, of course, milk and cookies. Get your holiday cards from the Humane Society at www.holidaycardcenter.org/aha. Celebrate the season by sending cards that show your support of American Humane Association’s mission — to create a more humane and compassionate world by ending abuse and neglect of children and animals. Don’t demand people say “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays,” or vice versa. Whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim or another faith, just accept the greeting as a gesture of merriment and goodwill. Help out animals, and get some adorable art at the same time. Check out the Animal Print Shop at www.theanimalprintshop. com/baby-animals/. Photographer Sharon Montrose has melded her love of animals and photography. She makes sure that her models are cared for, and she donates money from the series to animal rescue and education programs. Get some perspective. Yes, the economy is still sluggish and many people are out of work. But, comparatively, you are probably warm, safe and well-fed. Help out families in less developed countries with micro-finance gift cards from Opportunity International at www.opportunity.org. The organization provides loans, savings, insurance and training to more than 2 million people working their way out of poverty. Listen to Christmas music. Nothing will get you into the mood faster than Bing Crosby. But, there are countless other options out there — including a new Justin Beiber album, a She and Him Christmas album (featuring Zooey Deschanel of “The New Girl”), and, of course, there are the great mixes put out under the title “AVery Special Christmas.” The seventh version has Carrie Underwood singing “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” Miley Cyrus with a version of “Rockin’Around the Christmas Tree,” and Kelli Pickler doing “Santa Baby.” Sales of those albums go to Special Olympics. You can find them on Amazon. Make a pilgrimage to your community Christmas tree. Yes, trees are a pain to set up and tear down and get needles all over your rug. But if you visit the community tree in your town, you can get the joy of seeing a tree all dressed up without having to do any of the work. Search your community calendars to find one near you. Say “no” to at least one holiday obligation this year. Kathleen McIntire, creator of “Guiding Signs 101,” said that often, the holidays run us over because we don’t take control of our own schedules or make our own traditions that mean something personal to us. “This disconnect between what we desire and what we do happens all year long (and all life long!), but at the holidays we really notice it,” McIntire said. “That’s because we really long for what the holidays stand for — love, friendship, joy, spiritual meaning — but we settle for representations of those things instead of what’s real.” Go to a Christmas concert. Not a singer yourself? Enjoy live Christmas tunes by checking out a local choir, school group or jazz ensemble or professional orchestra. Remember that scene at the end of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” when the Whos sing despite having nothing on Christmas? Music is powerful anti-depressant. Have a game night. Gather the family, some chips and great games such as one of the many versions of Cranium, the fun-for-the-whole-family Taboo (both available from Hasbo for $29-$50 at Amazon.com) or Mindstein — the ultimate trivia game ($29.99 at www.marblesthebrainstore.com). Take part in a Christmas-themed run or walk. Don’t let the holidays run you over, but rather, get on your running shoes and keep up a steady exercise routine. It will allow you to blow off stress, work off holiday treats and get a better night’s sleep. Many community races include options for folks who aren’t ready for the Boston marathon, but want to get outside with their families or friends. Plus, many events support local charities. So, whatever charity you support, there’s probably a walk, run or ride that raises money for that cause. Host a Couch Christmas. Every December, set aside one day to gather together your closest family and friends, turn out the lights, snuggle under the covers and spend the whole day watching your favorite holiday gems. Aback-to-back viewing of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Scrooged,” “Love Actually” and, of course, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” surely will make you feel warm and fuzzy. Bake some cookies. Corral the kids in the kitchen and get out grandma’s recipes or try out a new Martha Stewart treat. Or not. Order your cookies from a church bake sale or organize a cookie exchange to get lots of different kinds of cookies for very little effort. This will help all your friends and neighbors get some gifts taken care of. Make your Christmas Eve a celebration. Staying up late to put together some complicated gift your kid will play with for five minutes?

Sometimes, it is difficult for everyone no matter how much we love Christmas to overcome the stresses of the season and allow your shrunken heart to grow three sizes. The best way to do that is to give until it hurts and be with the people we love, so we've come up with 17 ways for you to do both this year.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID –Vincent Hill spoke to the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club about the Highway Park Preservation and Neighborhood Enhancement District Council. Hill is the board president. Also present wereRoss Hendricks (sponsorship manager), Tiffany Green (media specialist), Michael Callahan (board member), andTeddy Callahan (resident). The council was formed in 2004 to govern their community. Hill told club members that Highway Park was formed as a community very soon after the town of Lake Placid was founded. The council’s goal is to make Highway Park a better place, therefore making Lake Placid better in the process. As a group working to have a new “facelift” on Highway Park, they know they have many challenges. They have put in for grants to help them achieve their goal, but are asking for the community’s help and any and all organizations, such as the Rotary Club. Hill said living in this neighborhood as a child and going through the ’80s with all its racial turmoil, he knew residents would eventually break the barriers of that time. One way the council decided to raise money tohelp themselves is the “Black Tie” event. Asilent auction is the highligh t of the event. It is sold out already as the council sets a limit on the number of participants and a date to commit to attend. The event is to be held at theChateau Elan in Sebring on February 2012. Ross Hendricks also said a few words about his service to our country for 12 yearsin the armed services. There he mee t all kinds of nationalities and was ready to come home and see his community be rebuilt and have a relationship and partnershipwith the rest of the community. The council is trying to form a busine ss community with deed restrictions.

C M Y K SEBRING — Here we are less than a week from Christmas, a new year soon upon us...where has 2011 gone? Though we all have experienced some good times and others not so great in 2011, we are so blessed to have the many freedoms this country offers. We pray for a wonderful Christmas season for each household and ability to cope with the new challenges of 2012. Recent park returnees include the Wolmas, Shirras, Bud Kohler, Quesnels, Fortins, Bill and Joyce Schwartz, who are relative newcomers, Jan and Michele Johns. The few holdouts we expect by the New Year holiday; welcome to each one. Nell Hays of the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office spoke to us at the December HOAmeeting concerning the Neighborhood Watch. She commended our group for being vigilant and watchful and cautioned us to keep our vehicles and homes secure. If we wish to leave windows open, security sensors are available. She advised us to place valuable items (GPS, cameras, shopping packages) in the vehicle trunk out of sight when out or even in the carport. She did report our area has been relatively crime-free since her last visit but pockets of thefts crop up so continue being vigilant. Always contact our Neighborhood Watch captains (or the Sheriff’s Office) with any suspicious happenings. We always appreciate Nell's advice and information she shares. Thank you, Nell. Judy Bryans, from Bulletin Board Concepts, introduced Rick Fulford of All Florida Weatherproofing and Construction, who shared useful information concerning his company. Rick is one of the advertisers recommended under Bulletin Board Concepts. Secretary Daphne Rigel stated our letter campaign opposing proposed changes to Florida Statute 723 has been forwarded to all local politicians. President Hal Johnson commended local representative Denise Grimsley for her response and concerns for the proposed changes. Vice President Bill Wyse advised us of the FMO meeting on Nov. 30 at Tropical Harbor, which 10 from the park attended. Dolly Blonde reported on the Nominations Committee efforts. Mark Sims, Betty Chapel, John Haag, Ruth Lee, Ron Ross all agreed to run for office. No nominations were made from the floor and the nominations were closed. Voting will be held on Jan. 2, the next scheduled meeting. Acommittee was appointed to keep the clubhouse decorated. Thank you to Mary Ann Snay, Claudette Boisvert, Joanne Crow and Shirley Lowe for agreeing to serve. Thank you to all who have graciously given of their talents for the past years. John Haag will oversee luminary lighting on Dec. 24. Street captains will assist and we trust all residents will join in this impressive event. The park is definitely glowing with Christmas grandeur. Woodbine always seems to shine the brightest, but thank you to all who share their decorating expertise this special season. Daphne Rigel is organizing a cookie exchange with several participants. Ruth Lee volunteered to assist residents in creating some lovely Christmas decorations she shared. Good park projects. Park ladies will meet at Caddy Shack on Dec. 21 for the Christmas luncheon. Wende Johnson shared information concerning the Christmas Eve party commencing at 4:30 p.m. Bring fingerfoods and a $10 gift labeled man or woman for the Yankee Swap. Congratulations to Marian Hibbard, whose home was selected as Home of the Month for December. We commend Marian also for her great progress after knee surgery. Harold McKeen was hospitalized on Dec. 7 and is now recuperating at The Palms. Our sincere best wishes are extended to both for return to normal activities. Family members are here from Syracuse to assist Anna, which she surely appreciates. Those of us attending the FMO meeting at Tropical Harbor were delighted to hear Cathy Healy, Silver Oaks MHPhas accepted the president's position for District 6 covering DeSoto, Glades, Hardee and Highlands Counties. Cathy was formerly secretary and realizes this is a huge responsibility. She encouraged participation and help filling the remaining office openings. Thank you, Cathy. Bill Williams, Section V Director, spoke on numerous FMO items including status of the proposed changes to Florida Statute 723, advising us to continue our e-mail campaign; how to get a prospectus for our home, which each household should have, and many other situations affecting mobile home parks. Bill shares great information we as mobile homeowners need to be aware of. He always advises us to support our local Homeowner Associations and the FMO to retain the rights we have. Cutting back is so prevalent today that we need to be alert to government changes affecting our rights. The ongoing Salvation Army food box is available in the clubhouse. Shirley and Dwaine thank everyone for the children's gift contributions for Christmas also. Shuffleboard has been going well. The Tuesday luncheon will serve a variety menu one week a month plus the normal menu otherwise. Soup and sandwich was featured recently. The Thursday morning Bible study has been well attended. Additional participants are invited to attend all activities. Watch the outside bulletin board for updates. Christmas is family time and many residents will be visiting Florida families. The Youngs are blessed to have son Ray come for a visit and will share part of the week with daughter and family in Stuart. Barb Wilson’s daughter and grandson will be arriving for the holidays. Others have park family, church family, or friends to celebrate with. We are so thankful for this wonderful season and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. LAKE PLACID — Tropical Harbor residents participated in the Lake Placid Christmas parade, which was Dec. 10. Our theme for the float was to honor the men and women who fought in World War II protecting our country. Our chairman for coordinating the presentation was Paula Bannister and her cochairman Judy Muise. When they asked for help, they had no idea that they would have such a wonderful response. In midstream, they had to get a large flatbed trailer to hold the large pontoon boat furnished by John and Vickie Echelberry and the boat trailer was provided by Lake Placid Marine in order to accommodate the individual veterans who served in World War II. The float was all decorated in red, white and blue skirting along with many lights of the same color and the American Flag. Riding on the float we had the following veterans who represented various branches of the service. We had one woman, Jeanette Oglesby who served in the Navy. The following eight men rode on the float: Andy Anderson, Cliff Beaupre, Robert Clouston, Jim Hogan, Phillip Margetts, Bob Oldham, Charles Price and Bob Verbarg. Walking alongside the float, we had 12 women dressed as elves in their red and green outfits handing out lots of candy to the spectators. This is one of the best parades we have had in a long time. Even though there was a fine mist, it didn’t seem to put a damper on the parade. As our Tropical Harbor float went by, the bystanders stood up and saluted and shouted “God Bless America.” The people in the park who helped put it all together have already committed to doing another float next year. It would be impossible to name all the helpers who gave of their time, energy, equipment, etc., but you can find gratitude in knowing you were a part of making our participation such a success. Sunday, Dec. 11, we had our Military Soup and Sandwich. The soup was a choice of french onion or chicken noodle, plus a delicious roast beef Kaiser roll with all the trimmings. We had more than 230 residents attend; however, many who came in late had to be turned away because the committee never dreamed they would have that big a crowd. It was the largest attendance in more than six years. Following the meal, the chorus provided the audience with beautiful Christmas songs of long ago which put many in a nostalgic mood as the memories of yester-years flashed back in their minds. Donna Frye, our choir director and pianist, put the program together. We had 30 singers who practiced for weeks in order to entertain us. And whoever said men are shy? We had Christmas solos by Jim Becker, Ed Cromer and Tom Slango. Aspecial thanks goes out to Arlene Dommer for putting all the music sheets together in clear folders to easily read the songs. The conclusion of the program was a presentation by Rick Knoche entitled “Home For Christmas,” where he collected a collage of pictures of residents who were in World War II and showed them on the big screen by name, in their uniforms and where they were stationed during the war. We must have had close to 25 pictures. This also brought back a lot of memories. We thank God for the sacrifices they made to protect our lives, our country and freedom. The program was wonderful and many a service person in the audience can be proud as they reflect on their days in the military. Before ending the video program, everyone stood up and gave Rick a standing ovation. Monday morning coed coffee emcee was Peggy Sue Teague, who can get everyone in a good mood with her jokes; where she gets them all, we have no idea. Our coffee makers were Bernie and Joan Vladyka. Everyone was still talking about the Christmas parade and the Military Soup and Sandwich Committee who did such a wonderful job serving more than 230 people, plus the Christmas Chorus and the pictures of our World War II veterans who live in our park. Peggy asked Carol Noel to come forward to give us a lis t of persons in need of ou r thoughts and prayers: Lou Aston, Joan Peterson, Ronnie Pritchard, and Steve Mazarah, Shirley Bauman passed away and John and Shirley Woodruff’s son passed away. Carol has signup sheets on the table for all to sign. Caroline Reece and Shirley Rose are selling tickets fo r the Christmas Day dinne r which will begin at 4 p.m. The meal will be a complete ham dinner; the only thing you are asked to bring is finger foods. Louis Wackershauser came forward and thanked Carol and John Reece for the arrangements they made for the 40 residents Tropical Harbor who took part in the 11-day cruise they just returned from. Peggy introduced Pete and Mary Bergenson, who are visitors. Peggy then asked fo r the chairman in charge o f activities to come forward. Carol Noel thanked everyone who worked so hard at the Military Soup and Sandwich and especially Marge Mulholland for pitching in. Jim Hogan told the residents that the next Pancake Breakfast will be Jan. 7. Vickie Echelberry told the group the Computer Club will meet from 10-11 a.m., Thursdays. Marilyn Crome r reminded everyone that the Homeowners meeting and the Ice Cream Social will be tonight. She also reminded residents that they will have carolers begin the singing around 5:30 p.m., on Thursday. Before ending the meeting, everyone acknowledged wha t a wonderful time they had putting the Christmas floa t together and entering it in the Christmas parade. Everyone stood up and gave Judy Muise a standing ovation. Tuesday, Dec. 13, we had our Women’s Coffee. Carol Noel made the coffee and Marilyn Cromer was ou r emcee. We had 36 ladies present. Carol Noel said she has two more names to add to the sick list; they are Rober t Schleich and Alice Kindred fell and broke her jaw. Marilyn told the group tha t they will have caroling beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 22. We will break up in two groups and ride our golf carts throughou t the park. When we are finished with the singing, we will return to the clubhouse for cookies and hot chocolate. We had 35 residents attend the Salad Bar Luncheon.

Jeff and Cynthia Klein attended and Jeff played during the intermission period. During that same Polka period, Ruthie and Roger Jimenez (shown) kept them company for a real show.

Ballroom Dancers NEWYORK (AP) — There were many kinds of best-sellers in 2011 and they sold in different ways.Some were meant for success, such as Walter Isaacson’s “Steve Jobs” or Tina Fey’s “Bossypants” or Stephen King’s “11/22/63.” Some were surprises, such as Todd Burpo’s “Heaven Is for Real” and Adam Mansbach’s “Go the (Bleep) to Sleep.” Some books thrived on the Internet alone. Amanda Hocking’s vampire romance novels were self-published, ebook million sellers. So were John Locke’s crime novels and Darcie Chan’s small-town story of a secluded widow, “The Mill River Recluse.” Ebooks have grown to around 20 percent of the market and the percentage should keep rising in 2012 as millions of ever-cheaper devices are purchased. The e-pull proved strong enough to persuade a famous holdout, J.K. Rowling, and a nearly as famous resister, Ray Bradbury, to go digital. The elibrary of older works expanded greatly in 2011, with additions including Alice Walker’s “The Color Purple,” Joseph Heller’s “Catch22” and Jim Collins’business favorite “Good to Great.” Expect digital versions of Tennessee Williams’plays in the near future. But the e-revolution remains in its early stages and books can still sell big through paper alone. Mansbach’s “Sleep,” the summer’s forbidden pleasure, was a sensation before an e-edition was available. Jeff Kinney’s latest “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” sold 1 million copies in its first week, all on paper. Meanwhile, some key works remain untouched by digital times, including a few likely to appear on reading lists for the foreseeable future: — “The Catcher in the Rye”: J.D. Salinger’s death nearly two years ago has yet to unlock any mysteries about his life or his career. No new Salinger works have been authorized and his published works remain available only in paper. Literary agent Phyllis Westberg of Harold Ober Associates, which helps manage Salinger’s literary estate, says no e-editions are planned. — “To Kill a Mockingbird”: Harper Lee’s only novel is a favorite of reading groups and civic programs, but don’t look for it on your Kindle. Lee’s publisher, HarperCollins, said in a statement: “Currently there are no plans to release it as an e-book, though conversations are ongoing about doing so.” — “The Absolutely True Diary of a PartTime Indian”: Sherman Alexie has said a lot of nasty things about ebooks, worrying especially about piracy, the power of Amazon.com and the decline of independent stores. Much of his work is unavailable for downloads, including this popular young adult novel, winner of the National Book Award in 2009. — “Gravity’s Rainbow”: Thomas Pynchon is an avatar for the Information Age, but his books must be read the old-fashioned way. A spokeswoman for his publisher, Penguin Group (USA), said she had no information on any ebook plans. Messages left with Pynchon’s agent, Melanie Jackson, were not returned. Many kinds of best-sellers sold in different ways in 2011

C M Y K DearAbby: I’m a 25-year-old guy with a unique problem. My father has been dating a woman since I was 16 who has a daughter my age named “Emma.” Over the years Emma and I became good friends — then more than that. We hooked up a few times. About a year ago, I told her I had developed feelings for her, which drove her off pretty fast. We haven’t talked since. She now lives in another state with her boyfriend, and I’m happy for her. With the holidays here, Dad expects me to go to all of the events and gettogethers. I made up excuses last year to avoid them, but don’t think I can do that again. I want to escape the awkward interaction with Emma and her boyfriend because I still have feelings for her. I don’t want to disappoint Dad, but I don’t know how to handle this. Help, please. — Running From The Holidays DearRunning: You don’t have to attend “all” the events and get-togethers, but you should attend a few. When you do, consider bringing a friend with you and minimizing the contact you have with Emma and her boyfriend. Observe the social amenities, keep the conversation brief and casual, and concentrate on the rest of the family. While the initial contact may be painful, this is no different than any other romance that didn’t work out. The awkwardness will pass if you concentrate on something else. DearAbby: I have been living with my daughter and her family for two years because I lost my job. I don’t pay rent, but help out with the utilities and buy my own groceries. I also baby-sit for them several days a week. The only money I have is an inheritance my father left me to live on, and it is dissipating quickly. I have met a man and have fallen in love with him. I plan to move in with him soon. The problem is my daughter and son-inlaw owe me money. They promised it would be repaid, but when I ask when, they give me the run-around. (They always have money for tattoos, movies and concerts, though.) They also expect me to baby-sit for them on weekends, but that’s the only time I can see my boyfriend. How do I tell them I want to live my own life? I want to be free and not have to worry about them needing me to baby-sit and making me feel guilty about it. I’m afraid they’ll say that because I lived with them, they no longer owe me the money. I don’t know how to tell them without it turning ugly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. — Frustrated in K.C., Mo. DearFrustrated: I presume your daughter and son-in-law have met your boyfriend? Announce the good news that you will be living with him; it shouldn’t be shocking. Ask again for the money that they owe you. Be pleasant, but firm, and don’t let it escalate into an argument. If they say they don’t have it, ask them to sign (and date) a note promising to repay it at a later date. That will be your proof that a loan was extended. If they refuse, with no proof that you loaned them money, you won’t have leverage to force them to pay up. As for the baby-sitting, do it when it’s convenient for you.

So many times we ignore the little messages from our body that we need to take a break. We push ourselves to the point of exhaustion and we can’t figure out why we are so tired all the time. This is why for the month of December I want you to practice taking a few minutes each hour to catch your breath. There are lots of ways to pamper ourselves; we have j ust forgotten how to love ourselves. Have you ever watched a toddler comfort themselves when they get sleepy? First they want something to drink, then they go find their blanky or favorite stuffed animal. After a few minutes of petting the critter they rub the blanket or animal up against their face and eyes. It is such a calm way to settle down. We may think we look funny with a stuffed animal in our arms but we can pet our real live critters. We get as much joy out of this routine as they do. Our blood pressure drops and we can feel the stress leave us. Learning to listen to your body will help you be in control of the stress in your life. When we practice calming ourselves every hour we stop the stress before it starts. I know that you think you don’t have time to sit for three minutes. Those few minutes are going to help replenish your batteries. I want you to make a list of few things you can do while you sit quietly for three minutes. Here is what I can come up with off the top of my head. 1. Close my eyes with my feet flat on the floor. 2. Put on a slow song and get lost in the music. 3. Make a list of five things you are thankful fo.r 4. Read a page in a book. 5. Open up a magazine and thumb through the pages. 6. Write a thank you note. 7. Paint your fingernails or file them. 8. Pick up your needle work or crochet. 9. Really enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. 10. Watch a candle flicker. Now you can see there are a number of things you can do as you sit back and relax for just a few minutes. The hardest part is remembering to do it. That is what timers are for. Set your timer for 57 minutes. When it goes off; it is time to take a break. I know you can do this. These simple three-minute breaks are going to bring the joy back to the holidays.

Take a three-minute pamper session Dear Abby FLY Lady Leanne Ely By JAKE COYLE APEntertainment WriterNEWYORK — You might say that Lady Gaga’s year really began in an egg. That’s how she arrived at the Grammys in February, encased in a large, translucent pod carried by scantily clad dancers. When she “hatched” onstage, she effectively gave birth to “Born This Way,” performing the eponymous lead single of her second studio album and anthem to self-acceptance. In 2011, the album would carry her around the world, where she rarely went unnoticed. After a year of extravagant globetrotting and relentless advocacy of tolerance, Lady Gaga has been voted Entertainer of the Year by members of The Associated Press. There were 135 ballots submitted by U.S. news organizations that make up the AP’s membership. Editors and broadcasters were asked to cast their ballots for who had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2011. Lady Gaga narrowly edged out the late Apple founder Steve Jobs by three votes. Many others received numerous votes, including Taylor Swift, Charlie Sheen, Adele and the cast of “Harry Potter.” Previous winners of the APEntertainer of the Year include Betty White, Swift, Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert. But it was Lady Gaga whose eminence in 2011 stood out most to voters. While accepting the best pop vocal album Grammy for her previous disc, “The Fame Monster,” earlier this year, she said stardom was an adjustment for her. “When I wrote ‘Born This Way,’I imagined (Whitney Houston) was singing it because I wasn’t secure enough in myself to imagine I was a superstar,” she said. When the album was released in May, 1.1 million copies sold in the first week, partly aided by a dramatic discount from Amazon, which sold it for 99 cents. But it was an industryshattering moment because an extraordinary 60 percent of sales in the first week were digital downloads. Altogether, it outsold the next 42 albums on the Billboard chart combined. As of October, worldwide sales had surpassed 8 million copies. “One of my greatest artworks is the art of fame,” the 25-year-old told “60 Minutes” earlier this year. “I’m a master of the art of fame.” Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is prepping for a “Born This Way” tour. Her “Monster Ball Tour” was still going strong earlier this year, which went a long way toward making her, according to Forbes, the highest grossing female musician in 2011. The magazine, which compiled pretax income earned from May 2010 to May 2011, said Lady Gaga earned $90 million. Paul Pronovost, editor of the Cape Cod Times, called Lady Gaga’s “A Very Gaga Thanksgiving” — a bizarre ABC holiday special hosted by the singer — “a brilliant reach to mainstream America.” “Transcendent performers like Lady Gaga come around as often as Halley’s Comet,” says Pronovost. “She has that rare gift of sophisticated self-promotion, so outlandish at times you just can’t look away” and the talent to back it up. “This is Madonna 4.0.” The concerts spawned an HBO special, which was nominated for five Emmys Awards and won one. Lady Gaga was a regular presence at award shows throughout the year. She won three Grammys in February, including best female pop vocal performance. She won two MTVVideo Music Awards. She was recently nominated for three Grammys for next year’s awards, including best album. This summer, her infamous meat dress — made of layers of Argentinian beef — was put on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Lady Gaga voted AP Entertainer of the Year

In small bowl, sprinkle baking soda over dates. Add water and set aside for 20 minutes. In large bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Using a large metal spoon, fold in date mixture and flour until well mixed. Batter will be thin. Spoon mixture into prepared pan.

To make the caramel sauce, set saucepan over medium heat and add sugar, cream, vanilla and butter. Cook, stirring often, until sauce comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medi um-low and simmer for 2 more minutes. While cake is still warm, use a wooden skewer to make holes all over the top of the cake. Pour half of the warm sauce over the warm cake.
