By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Monday afternoon, three women calmly sat on one side of Supervisor of Electionsmain counter, patiently waiting for the Avon Park recall signature sheets to arrive. Their job would be to count and authenticate the signatures. On the other side of the counter two men and two women waited impatiently, sometimes sitting, sometimes moving around. They were all members of the Avon Park recall committee, each of whom, they said, had spent many hours going door to door to collect the signatures about to be tabulated and verified. By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Four local young ladies recently returned from a regional competition in Georgia where one competitor, 10year-old Megan Bowers, advanced to the national competition. Each of the girls all train, ride and work at Orchid Hills Stables Inc., located at 419 Ranchero Drive in Sebring. Sarah Holton is the owner and operator of the facility and has been in business since 2000 and competing since 1992. This is definitely a family run and family orientated place. My family members help out here as well as several of the competitors, Holton said. Holton, along with Megan Bowers, Syndee Crow, 12, Erin Lamb, 15, and Tarryn Paterson, 18, all traveled to Perry, Ga. earlier this month to the Arabian Region 12 Championship Horse Show. These girls amaze me. Watching them, it just gives me goosebumbs, said Holton. Horse competition, for the most part, has historically been an expensive hobby, requiring a great deal of money not only to compete but to have the basic aspect of the sport the horse. Horse competition is a sport for the wealthy. These girls arent competing with $50,000 horses.

In October 2010, the states Department of Community Affairs filed their intent to find Highlands County and their plans for development not in compliance with state laws. In February, the county requested settlement hearings and began the complicated process to meet requirements for water supplies, land development policies and environmental issues. During the meeting, the county Development Services Director Mark Hill presented a last-minute change to the countys settlement, which must be signed and returned to the state for approval before it is final, but included a policy change that satisfied Florida Wildlife concerns, according to Hill. Although still opposed to the overall philosophy taken by the county about more development, environmentalists led by attorney Paula House agreed to the settlement after several concessions were made to the original plan. My clients are grateful that Highlands County and regional planning staff modified the land plan to include some safeguards for environmental areas, House said in a press release on Tuesday. But their opi nion that these developments shou ld not be built has not changed. The issues of need and ove rdevelopment were not addressed, b ut we felt we got the concessions w e needed to go along with this, Hou se said at the commission meeting o n Tuesday. It was a good give and take, and I think it worked out better with t he participation of everyone, said cou nty commission chairperson Barba ra Stewart.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING In May 2008, Positive Medical Transport, known at the time as Positive Mobility Transport, was honored by the Economic Development Commission as start-up small business of the year. Now the EDC has named Positive Medical Transport Small Business of the Year, 2011. When founder Ron Layne opened shop as a medical taxi service, the company consisted of himself, his wife and their two sons. Now Layne has a staff of 140 employees, 15 ambulances, eight support trucks, two 24/7 station houses one off of U.S. 98 and the other in Okeechobee with a third station in Polk County opening sometime in June. Altogether, Positive Medical Transport services eight counties and receives about 15,000 calls a year. Layne and his crews provide safe and comfortable transportation for people who need to get to doctors appointments, dialysis and oncology treatments, wound care centers, transfer from one hospital to another, or get home after being released from a hospital. In addition to the large number, Positive Medical has a wide range of vehicles from a four-wheel-drive ambulance to one designed for long distance, out of state travel to ordinary cars for local ambulatory customers. The key to his success, Layne said, is the companys focus on customer service and punctuality. You treat every patient as if they were your own mother, he said, while taking a visitor on a tour of the station. Do unto others, you know, then he stopped and smiled. Some employees might be tired of hearing it, I say it all the time. But Layne claims little credit for his success. The good Lord has blessed us, he said, his gaze lifting to a wall sign in his office extolling service to God. Lane, who is originally from Ohio, has been a first responder most of his life, starting when he was 16 in 1974 as a volunteer fir fighter. He kept that up over the years, becoming a paramedic. Layne had a day job in addition, serving in the sheriffs office of Preble County and rising to the rank of captain before retiring in 2005. The idea of a medical taxi service had been on his mind for many years. In fact, in 1980 he began a one ambulance company called Dial A Medic you know that was a while ago by the name, he grinned. Who says dial anymore? Soon after opening his service, however, Layne received a promotion and no longer had the time to devote to his business, so he sold it to a larger company, Courtesy Transport, operating out of Cincinnati. The idea, however, remained. When he and his wife Marissa moved to Highlands County in 2005 he was retired and she had found a Heartland job through the Internet he decided to try again. This time as the focus of his full attention, the business took off and continues to grow. It hasnt been easy, Layne said, especially in the lagging economy with ever increasing fuel costs. While most insurances and Medicaid will pay for medical transportation, we have to be very efficient and flexible, Layne said. Cutting edge software helps Layne be efficient. Dispatchers can track all ambulances and company vehicles on their computers. This means they know where everyone is at all times, making it easier to schedule pickups and deliveries, make onthe-fly reassignments, and plot the most direct routes. With all-day-and-night coverage, meaning a crew is always available for a call, shifts are staggered. For example, if a patient needs to be in Tampa for an oncology treatment at 7 a.m., it means leaving Highlands County around 5, so some crews report for work at 4 a.m. Layne believes in working up the ladder. Aperson can come here and go to work as a driver, go through our own (basic and advanced) courses, attend the paramedic program at South Florida Community College, sponsored by the company, and advance right up through the ranks, Layne said. When not cleaning vehicles, or driving, employees are encouraged to study in Page 2ANews-SunWednesday, May 18, 2011www.newssun.com May 13 568112639x:2Next jackpot $29 millionMay 11 158293046x:3 May 7 242543464853x:4 May 16 211303234 May 15 1617212630 May 14 814262731 May 13 913151923 May 16 (n) 6898 May 16 (d) 7846 May 15 (n) 1388 May 15 (d) 8618 May 16(n) 35 2 May 16 (d) 53 3 May 15 (n) 90 9 May 15(d) 37 3 May 13 418222919 May 10 101128316 May 6 22131413 May 3 718364119 May 14 817184044 PB: 16 PP: 2Next jackpot $97 millionMay 11 917324345 PB: 31 PP: 3 Note: Cash 3 and Play 4 drawing s are twice per day: (d) is the daytime drawing, (n) is the nighttime drawing.

I was asked by commissioner Ronald N eads if I could help out, and I told t hem I would, Maxcy said Tuesday. Maxcy resigned from the Highlands board in November 2010 to seek the elected office of tax collector, but did not swing the election. Maxcy said he was still working out the details of his contract, and that he was not sure what the pay would be, but had every confidence that he could reach an agreement. Not quite sure when they want me to get going, I hope to start next week. I am just doing this for a short time, maybe three or four months. This not a long-time thing at this point, Maxcy said.

space set aside for that purpose. Layne is accepting applications. Go to pmtinc.us for application forms and information. He said he understands the importance of mentoring. Back when he was a captain in the Preble Sheriffs Office in the s, Layne got to know a young dispatcher, just graduated from high school. In late-night conversations, Layne told him about his idea of a medical taxi service. In 1995 that dispatcher began his own transport service in Ohio, called EMT Inc. What makes that interesting is he bought Courtesy Transport, which had bought Lanes Dial AMedic service, and so he now owned it. Layne marvels at the connections. I brought him on board with the idea, he said, when I was a ment or to him. Now he has 8 0 ambulances and over 40 0 employees, and he h as become a mentor to me. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, May 18, 2011Page 3A B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Town c ouncil members discussed a r ange of issues during a v ision meeting Monday n ight. Discussions took place in f ront of a mostly silent audie nce, an unusual occurrence i n Lake Placid, where audie nce participation can b ecome vociferous. It was a not a decision m aking meeting, rather one t o sort out priorities and set a r ough agenda going into b udget season. Citizen opinion was sought o ut by the council. Speak up, Mayor John H olbrook said to the audie nce at one point, we want y our input. Add what you w ant to the agenda. The key item throughout t he night was the need for an u pgrade in the towns admini stration. Still operating with roughl y the same number of pers onnel who served the town d ecades ago, when life and g overnment was simpler, the c ouncil pointed out it was t ime to reorganize the towns s tructure and past time to hire a n administrator. State and federal mand ates, new accounting regul ations and growing utility o bligations mean something h as to be done to adapt to c hanging times, all the memb ers agreed. Arlene Tuck reminded the c ouncil of her impending r etirement and the need to b egin that transition early. It was also agreed that a t own administrator position h as to be created before reo rganizing departments withi n the city, because so much d epends on what kind of an a dministrator is hired an engineer, a planner or a manager. Everyone agreed that more talent is needed at town hall, and that in time all employees should be cross trained. More money has to spent on the administration of this town, said Councilmember Steve Bastardi. The hope is a highly skilled staff would mean a smaller staff. It was agreed to form a committee, to be chaired by Council Member Cheryl Davis and citizen Marlene Barger, that would return with recommendations for an administrators job description. The town council agreed to continue an inter-local agreement with the county regarding planning services, although creating an administrator position requiring a planning background might make that unnecessary. The town also agreed that the use of two accounting firms this fiscal year had made sense. One company had provided accounting help throughout the year, the other had done the annual audit. Issues of sanitation were raised whether the town continue with its own garbage pick-ups, for example, or contract out to a hauler; and what plans should be made for recycling, which is being mandated. There is a need for town restrooms to accommodate tourists, the council said. The choices are whether to build a new one in a new spot, build a new restrooms where the old one used to be, or contract with a local business to provide public use of private rest rooms. The rough condition of Tangerine Avenue was raised, but when it was suggested the county could help, County Commissioner Jack Richie, attending the meeting, warned the council against approaching the county. The road program has already been put together, he said, Its not a good idea right now to go before the commission (with this issue). Adiscussion of recreation and parks was postponed as too complicated and contentious to deal with Monday night.

E ditor: Memorial Day is May 30 a nd the average American d oes not even know what the h oliday means. I sometimes w onder where we as a nation w ould be if it had not been f or the sacrifice of so many w ho gave so much for the f reedom we enjoy each and e very day. I think of the f amilies who lost loved ones i n the fight for freedom and t he American way of life. I a lso think of our young men a nd women in our Armed Forces who still fight on foreign soil for that reason. When will the American government get smart and quit giving away money we do not have or being the Big Brother in solving the world problems. We continue to pull countries out of the hole and they do not give a rat about the Americans who have died and served to keep them free. You know the money we send to these countries each year to help their economy never gets to the poor people of the nation. When will we speak up and say No and start thinking about our own nation, America? Millions of people have died in the name of freedom and most never say thanks for the support because they know that Big Brother, Uncle Sam, will always be there to help. I walked among the rows of white markers at Florida National Cemetery the other day and realized that these men and women have given so much for not only our nation but for the nations of the world. I pray that on Memorial Day, Americans will remember those who gave so much for the everyday freedoms we enjoy. What does America mean to you as a person? Something to think about, and you and I should always thank a member of our Armed Forces and any veteran for what they are doing and have done to protect all of us who love this great nation. Memorial Day is not a time to be sad, but a time to be proud to be an American. Eugene Sauls SebringFlorida prison privatization plan is a big mistakeEditor: Politicians in Tallahassee just chose to take my job, gut our communitys economy and put our security at risk. This is what will happen if the plan to privatize prisons in this state is put into place. I am deeply disappointed in our representatives in Tallahassee for not standing up for us. As a correctional officer at DeSoto Correctional Institution, I see first-hand what it takes to keep the states most violent felons behind bars and to keep our communities safe. This is not a job to put in the hands of private companies who will make dangerous cuts in order to reap big profits. I am also a voter in this district and I know Im not the only one who thinks that this privatization plan is a big mistake. Robert Spiegel Lake PlacidDont forget Armed Forces DayEditor: President Harry Truman proclaimed the first Armed Forces Day on May 20, 1960. Every year since then, on the third Saturday in May we have honored the men and women who have served in uniform in war and in peace since the nations founding AFD will celebrate its 51st anniversary today. This day was created to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corp and Air Force Days. The single-day celebration stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under one department the Department of Defense. President Truman praised the work of the military services at home and across the seas and he said it is vital to the security of the nation and to the establishment of a desirable peace to have the formation of this day. The theme of the first Armed Forces Day was Teamed for Defense. It was chosen as a means of expressing the unification of all the military forces under a single department of the government. It was also designed to expand the public understanding of what type of job is performed an d the role of the military in civilian life. It is a day for the military to show state of art equipment to the civilian population they were protecting especially at the military bases. And it was a day to honor and to acknowlege the people of t he Armed Forces of the United States. President Kennedy said a word to the nation, Guard zealously your right to serv e in the Armed Forces, for without them, there will be no other rights to guard ... Our servicemen and women are serving through out the world as guardians of peace many of them are away from homes, their friends and families. They are visible evidence of our determination to meet any threat of the peace. Armed Forces Day honor s above all, the dedicated ind ividuals who wear the uniforms of their country Each serviceman and wome n wherever they may be, wha tever their task, contributes directly and importantly to the defense of this nation. Each one has the task to pr otect the freedoms, which underline the greatness of America. So let us honor our military today and everyday an d thank them for giving us th e freedoms we enjoy each an d every day. God bless them all and God bless America. Suzanne Krueg er Lake Plac id T he Florida Legislature has offered the l eadership of H ighlands County t he opportunity of a v oluntary pay cut.But the question arises of i f our local leadership will set t he example to share the w ealth, so to speak, and give b ack to the taxpayer. Salaries for top county a dministrative positions and c onstitutional officers have b een climbing throughout the y ears, reaching a level that is o ut of touch with those who a ctually make the county w ork those who make sure t he lights come on, who pave t he roads and protect the s treets. Teachers, police and firef ighters will take a cut to t heir take-home pay when t hey have to put more into t heir own pensions, and the s tate legislators have already t aken a 7 percent cut in their salaries, leading by example. Now the question arises if our own leadership with share the pain. No one should have to take a pay cut, but the News-Sun thinks that a gesture would be greatly admired and appreciated by the taxpayer, many of whom are underpaid or out of work. It could return faith in the fact that the leadership is not in the business of politics for the money, but for the service that they all give voice to when they are seeking votes. Now the rubber meets the road, and the pay cuts have trickled up, allowing the local constitutional officers to honestly put the word sacrifice along with the word service when they stump for the next election. Will they find it in their hearts, and budgets, to give a little back? We will find out in the next budget season. Time to share the pain Out of elective politics for over a decade, dithering on the sidelines like a moody Southernfried Hamlet, Newt Gingrich jumped back into the ring announcing plans to run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. And for every analyst and every pundit and every satirist everywhere, allow me to say: Hooray! Thank you, kind sir. May I have another? His re-entrance onto center stage is welcome on many fronts. First off, the guys name is Newt. Never in the annals of political mockery have we had the chance to make herpetological jokes before or after. And rest assured we will avail ourselves of the opportunity. Expect the phrase Lizard-Boy to reassume a central role in the national lexicon soon. Then theres his penchant for routinely ratcheting the rhetoric up past eleven. Hundred. Our recent precipitous plunge into polarization can easily be traced to Gingrichs scorched-earth ascension in the early s. There are no honorable opponents in Newt World, only despicable traitors. Each disagreement, a nuclear war. And anybody who isnt a white male Christian poses a major threat to democracy as we know it and should be vaporized only after having his knees broken as an example. Gingrich has said that President Obama may be so outside our comprehension that his policies can be fathomed only if you understand Kenyan, anticolonial behavior. Also: I think there is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it. I think that it is a very dangerous threat to anybody who believes in traditional religion. Hes a trash-talking intellectual poseur with the subtlety of a hippo in a tutu. The good news for Gingrich is that he ranks very high in recognition polls. The bad news for Gingrich is that he ranks very high in recognition polls. The founder and spokesman of Renewing American Leadership comes equipped with more baggage than a Carnival Cruise liner taking on the contents of two stranded sister ships. Might be three people tops in the country whose opinions of the former Speaker of the House havent solidified like frozen chicken grease. Love him or hate him, theres no in-between; and that includes his own party. To some Republicans, hes Moses who led them out of the desert to the promised land of taking back the House in for the first time in 40 years. To others hes Voldemort. Sparking an ill-fated government shutdown then resigning under a cloud of ethics violations; some still refer to him as He Who Must Not Be Named. Dr. Newton Leroy Gingrich is generally considered an ideas man. Not good ideas necessarily, bu t big ideas. Sometimes even Fox News wonders if hes wildly over the top. Also odd ideas, like claiming hi s adulterous behavior somehow stemmed from loving his country too darn much So essentially, he did to tw o mistresses what he wanted to do to us. Thanks, ladies And yet, he attracts evangelical followers with his traditional family values platform. And having thre e wives just proves hes Ext ra Traditional. Gingrich cant win, and if hes half as smart as he thinks he is, he has to kno w that. So, why is he running ? To what end? Increased face-time to sell more of h is twenty-plus books? Cant get enough of the sound o f his own voice? Or is his responsibility simply to throw bombs at all the major edifices and let Mit t Romney waltz through the detritus unscathed? The only problem is, like sweaty nitroglycerine, Mr. Gingrich is highly charged and unpredictable. Ahuma n IED. Run. Newt. Run. Will Durst is a political comedi an who has performed around the world.

Lake Country beat out 825 s chools by earning $704 and will r eceive a check for $10,704 this a fternoon. The Dairy Council of Florida, a long with Sweetbay Supermarkets, initiated the program to encourage healthy food choices and consumption for surrounding communities and families. The idea behind the program is to give students a larger intake of healthier foods and to work to improve school initiatives. The families were provided the chance to purchase the healthy foods and a portion of the costs were given back to the school. The families that took part in the program earned money for Lake Country by doing one or more of the aspects of the initiative. Shoppers could buy specially marked products that stated Support Local Schools Featured Product, earn school dollars when checking out at the register with the purchase of three or more specially marked products, and submit the school dollars to the school of their choice in the store's collection box. Not only are is the school community excited about receiving the money but everyone is even more thrilled about the visitor who will present the check and address the students. Kregg Lumpkin will be presenting the Sweetbay check, said Assistant Principal Judy Dyer. Dyer is excited, as she should be. The first player that was arranged to visit the school was unable to make it. This is the second player that the sports agency has arranged to visit Lake Country. The former University of Georgia running back was draft ed by the Green Bay Packers befo re landing with the Tampa B ay Buccaneers last season.

Voters League to discuss recall

The signatures had been delivered by the committee to Avon Park City Hall at 8 a.m. Monday, as directed by state statute. Again according to state statute, the sealed boxes of signatures are supposed to be delivered immediately to the Supervisor of Elections. For reasons kept to themselves, city hall personnel did not deliver the signatures to the elections office until 4:30 p.m. The recall process begins with collecting enough registered voter signatures to trigger a recall process. In Avon Parks case that meant 454 valid signatures per targeted elected official. Avoter had to sign separate sheets, one per elected officer. Three city council members are facing recall Brenda Gray, who is serving her third term of office, and Paul Miller and Terry Heston, who are both in their first term. While the signatures still have to be officially verified, 488 people signed on to recall Gray, 477 to recall Miller, and 544 to recall Heston. According to the website Ballotpedia, recalls of city officials nationwide have grown exponentially since 2009. Between 1960 and 1991, the site lists no city official recalls in the nation, and from 2003 to 2008 only one or occasionally two, in a year. In 2009, however, the numbers started to rise. In 2011 there have been 22 recall efforts of city officials nationwide in the first quarter of the year. Prior to the recall movements of Miamis mayor and three council members in Avon Park this year, only Harry Stoltzhaus of Anna Maria faced recall in 2010. When the signatures are verified a signer has to be a city resident and registered voter the next step is an opportunity for the officials facing recall to defend their actions and decisions with a statement of not more than 200 words. Within five days of the defense statement, it is combined with the recall signatures and returned to the recall committee, which is then respons ible for gathering the signatur es of 15 percent of the citys ele ctors. These have to be presen ted to the elections office wit hin 60 days. Should those signatures be valid, the elected official in question has five days to ma ke an irrevocable resignation. Otherwise, the chief judge of the judicial circuit in th is case, David Langford of t he 10th Judicial Circuit will s et a date for a special recall ele ction within 30 to 60 days. According to Ballotpedi a, the most recent major reca ll was of the former governor of California, Gray Davis in 2003.

Areport from the APPD O fficer Orlando Esquibel s tates that Agard claimed H eston approached Agard j ust before noon Saturday w hile Agard was collecting s ignatures door to door. Heston and Agard e xchanged words, and then A gard called the APPD to c omplain, the report said. H eston left before the APPD a rrived. Almost 30 minutes later, w hile Agard was parked at t he corner of Rich Street and W ester Avenue, according to t he police report, Heston and C ouncilman Parke S utherland parked their v ehicles next to Agard, but d id not immediately talk to h im. Sutherland is not one of t he council members named i n the recall action. Agard again called the A PPD, as well as news a gencies, and explained that h e felt he was being h arassed. They are interfering with my constitutional right to gather petitions, Agard told the News-Sun on Saturday. They are just trying to harass and intimidate me, Agard added. Heston stated Saturday that he was responding to a call from a concerned member of the community. I got a call from a citizen, OK. He (the citizen) told me that they were calling me a crook. Why are they saying things about me when they dont know me? Heston told the News-Sun. I have every right to be here. Acitizen called and told me that he (Agard) had called me a crook, Heston said. That aint right. Sutherland also responded that he got a call from a citizen. I am here in my official capacity as a councilman. I have every right to inform the citizens of the truth, and I am here to answer any questions they may have, Sutherland said Saturday. When asked, Heston said he was at the incident in his position as a councilman. The APPD report states that Heston called Sutherland, whom Heston identified as his lawyer, the report states. Both councilmen responded to arguments from Agard before the APPD arrived for the second time, and both stressed they had every right to educate the citizens and to be in the vicinity of the recall petition process. Esquibel took the information, but did not determine any wrongdoing. Based on interviews with both parties, I determined that no crime had occurred as was explained by both parties, Esquibel wrote.. Esquibel also advised Agard on Saturday that his only recourse is to file a restraining order with the courts on Monday.

events have been both canceled and now postponed and we are unaware of the reschedule if there will be one, the Australian wrote in an e-mail to Heartland Triathlon Director Cherie Starr. If I fail to compete in Austria (the same weekend as Heartland) then my Olympic dream is over. But even though he wont physically be in Sebring, McCormack will still be involved in the Heartland Triathlon as much as possible through the power of the Internet. With just a few weeks to go, its too late to book another motivational speaker and our marketing material have already been committed to Maccas appearance, Starr wrote in a press release. To make up for our not having him here in person and to show our support for his Olympic bid, the Heartland Triathlon is going video stream Maccas performance in the Austria race in support of his efforts to make the Australian Olympic team. McCormack will also still be at the annual Pasta Bash, although it will be on a video screen instead of in person. Instead, there will be a live video conference where McCormack will speak to the athletes and answer questions. Hes been so awesome to work with, Starr said Tuesday. We are basically going to do everything we were planning to do, just without a body. Hes gone to the extreme to help us out. He even offered to come back next year. The Triathlon will go ahead with its already planned Macca branding of all of the goodies each race participant will be receiving including a race shirt, visor, finisher towels, a Polar water bottle and awards. There will also be autographed editions of McCormacks new book Im Here to WIN: AWorld Champion's Advice for Peak Performance, which has just been introduced.

Our horses arent like that, Holton said. The girls with the exception of Lamb, whose horse died unexpectedly the Sunday before the competition all stood out in the competition. Erin could not compete. Once you qualify with an animal you have to compete with it; unfortunately for Erin her horse died. She still came with us. She was a huge help and she supported the other girls, said Holton. The 18-year-old age group had 20 competitors. Tarryn had a stunning performance. She was incredible, but her age group is just so competitive. Unfortunately she did not place, Holton said. Crow placed in the top 5 for her division and Bowers earned two Reserved Grand Champion awards, allowing her to qualify for the national competition next month in Oklahoma. These girls have to win at several shows before they could even enter into the regional show. Im extremely proud of all of them, said Holton. The Arabian horse shows are nonsponsored. Competitors must contribute their own money and time to be a part of the contests. With the costs of fuel, feed, lodging, food, the competition and other minor details, horse competitions hav e taken a huge hit in the struggling economy. The regional show was quite expensive. We arent sure yet if Megan will be going to the nationals ; it is very, very expensive, Holton said. Holton uses her skills to offset the costs of competing for the riders. The students who compete at Orchid Hill s learn more than just how to show a horse. I teach them everything. The basi cs to competition. They learn how to groom a horse, feed, everything. The y are building a connection with these horses, which is why these horses compete so well against horses that are solely for competition, Holton said. Holton offers a variety of horse services. The Orchid Hills Stables ar e available for beginner riders, familie s, trail rides, lessons and weekly summ er camps beginning June 13. Orchid Hills Stables works by appointment only.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Following the spring time trend of prep athletes signing to continue their careers, Corbin Hoffner put down his signature Tuesday morning to join the Titans of St. Petersburg College to take his baseball career to the college level. Though Hoffner himself views it a bit differently. This is about baseball getting me an education, he said. Whatever happens beyond that is just a bonus. Not that it is just about that, for sure, as the 6-foot, 5-inch right hander is greatly looking forward to getting onto the field. Ive worked real hard for this and its real exciting, Hoffner said. I had gotten some calls from other schools, Broward and some schools in North Carolina and Tennessee, but I just really liked (head coach) Rob Francis and what hes doing with the program. St. Pete, under probation from the previous coaching staff, is in the process of revamping things as Francis enters his second season. Aformer assistant at Ol Miss, Francis provides Hoffner with an added benefit. He was also the pitching coach there, so therea lot I can learn from him, he said. Hoffner brings his own benefit to the Titans as well, having compiled a 6-1 record this past season with a 2.01 ERAand 53 strikeouts in 48 and two-thirds innings pitched. With only 15 walks on the season, Hoffner had a nifty strikeout-to-walk ratio of more than 3-to-1. Hes played for me for three years and pitched for two, former Blue Streak head coach Hoppy Rew is said. His defense is unb elievable, I think he had o ne error in three years and th at was probably on a b ad throw that I just thought he should have caught. Hell definitely ha ve success pitching and I ju st hope they give him a look at By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It took a few innings to get things going for the Firemen in 11-12-year old Dixie League action Monday night at the Max Long Recreational Complex, but once they did get going, they kept going and going and going in a 21-1 win over the Elks. We started out slow, but that seems to be the way its been all season long, head coach Andrew Bible said. It takes an inning or two before we get it together. That was the case as Trevor Thomas set them down in order in the top of the first and worked around a D.J. McPhail single in the second too keep things a scoreless tie through two. But when the Elksbullpen was called upon in the third, things started to unravel a bit as six walks and scoring singles from Alex Lopez and Sean Osceola put the Firemen out to a 5-0 lead. But the Elks scratched back for a run in the bottom of the inning and held the Firemen to a single run in the fourth to keep within striking distance as they loaded the bases with two out in the last half of the fourth. Lopez, however, on in relief since the third, got the final out without a run scoring, and then lead off the top of the fifth with a blast over the left-center field fence. Osceola followed with a shot over the fence in rightcenter and the run parade had begun. Acombination of walks, hit batters, RBI hits and wild pitches kept the runners moving and coming around. When the dust finally se ttled, 15 runs had crossed t he plate in the inning and t he relatively close game h ad been blown wide open. Robert Spoone came on in the bottom of the fifth to close things out and o ne might have thought it wou ld have been a demoraliz ed group of Elks that would g o down easy at this point. But while Spoone did g et out of it soon enough, the se Elks showed they were st ill up to do battle. That was nice to se e, Bible said. Its hard enoug h to keep the attention of a group of 9-12-year olds f or two hours and after an innin g like that, to see them still o ut there trying hard and runnin g around was a good thing.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, May 18, 2011Page 3B By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekDOVER, Del. The feud between Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick was likely more significant in the grandstands and living rooms than it is in the Dover International Speedway garage. Most of their peers seem to be taking it tongue-in-cheek and chalking it up to Kyle being Kyle and Harv being Harv. Mark Martin, not surprisingly, has been highly supportive of Busch (Im a big fan of Kyle Busch) in part because he is highly supportive of most everyone. Late in his career, Martin is blossoming into NASCARs version of Ernie Banks. Intriguing Regan Smiths first official victory (Darlington, May 7) makes him a much more valuable commodity. One of the changes that will occur is that Smiths name will come up more often in regard to openings at other teams, and it will be interesting to see if his current team, Furniture Row, will able to keep him in its No. 78. The topic hasnt come up much yet, but perhaps its instructive to note that Smith is on the verge of purchasing a home in Denver, where the Barney Visser-owned team is headquartered. Its just a great place to live, said Smith, who grew up in Cato, N.Y. The one thing thats been consistent with some of the guys that have come out there is that its refreshing for them to kind of get away from the Charlotte area, where all the teams are, and do something different and get to have a different chapter in their lives. Theres not a single one of them thats come out there that hasnt loved it. Clarity, or maybe not Tony Stewart drew some attention earlier this week when he said he wished NASCAR would set some reasonable standards for what will and wont be tolerated. After all, the whole policy is based on a single quote from NASCARs Robin Pemberton before the 2010 season: Boys, have at it. I think were all in a gray area where we know that in the past, that things that have been done, penalties would equal suspension, potentially, and probation, for sure, said Jimmie Johnson. Now were in this gray area and I think that NASCAR is still trying to feel it out. Theres a point there where its have at it, boys and then there is crossing that line. I know exactly what Tony is speaking about and hes right, where you would like some clarity. As a competitor, you want to know where that line is and whats allowed and whats not. I definitely understand where Tony is coming from, but I think its a progress in motion right now. Or maybe even a work in progress. If you have a question or comment, write: NASCAR This Week, c/o The Gaston Gazette, P.O. Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com The weather at Dover ended up being better than expected, which didnt prevent attendance from being worse. The word most often used in reference to Matt Kenseth is consistency, but it belies the record a bit. Kenseth has already won twice this year, and twice in his career he has won four races or more in a season. In each of the past two weeks, Carl Edwards would likely have won had it not been for late caution ags and strategic calls. Things are getting crazy at Stewart Haas Racing. Tony Stewarts radio transmissions early in the race seemed rather harsh since he is in charge of the operation. Incredibly, the Sprint Cup race at Dover wound up being notably lacking in feuds. Mark Martin rose to Kyle Buschs defense. Hes a big fan of, well, almost everyone else and invariably humble about himself. The biggest relief of the weekend came from Edwards, who, after winning the Nationwide Series 5-Hour Energy 200, discovered that he had not, in fact, made contact with Joey Loganos car on the next-to-last lap. Putting the Sprint All-Star Race on the schedule after Talladega, Richmond, Darlington and Dover brings the sport to a boil quite nicely. Having Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick on probation sort of defeats the whole purpose of the All-Star Race. Wonder what happens now if they dont play nice? Its going to be hard for Juan Pablo Montoya to make the Chase if he keeps getting himself in trouble every week. Sometimes it seems as if Montoya has too much talent for his own good. Whos hot: Matt Kenseth joined Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch as a two-race winner in 1. ... Mark Martins runner-up nish was his rst top ve and enabled him to move up to 11th in points. Whos not: Tony Stewart was awful at Dover, nishing six laps off the pace and falling to 10th in points. ... Engine trouble relegated A.J. Allmendinger to 37th at Dover and 16th in points. Allmendinger V E R S U SThe beat goes on, though not, at Dover, on the track. In separate press conferences, Harvick said basically that he didnt like Busch and never would. Busch called Harvick two-faced and said hed been watching too much hockey. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: The key point is that they didnt tangle on-track again, but its significant that neither seems to be backing off his dislike of the other. Itii RSithfitf Martin lends his support to controversial Kyle By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekDOVER, Del. Whats that overused golf term about driving for show and putting for dough? If Matt Kenseth plays golf, he doesnt talk about it, which makes golf no different from anything else, with the possible exception of the only subject that ever seems to get the salt-of-the-earth citizens of Wisconsin talking, which, of course, is the Green Bay Packers. Kenseth loves his Packers and probably likes his cheese to come from Wisconsin. On the race track, Kenseth is a born putter. The latest wad of dough, at Dover International Speedway, was $314,311. Perhaps Kenseths reticence stemmed from the fact that it seemed like stealing. He and crew chief Jimmy Fennig also, by the way, from Wisconsin kept a safe distance as Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards and Clint Bowyer appeared to be settling the FedEx 400 benefitting Autism Speaksamong them selves. Then Kenseth he and Fennig quibbled over which was responsible for the decision, being from Wisconsin and all breezed onto pit road for two tires while the apparent contenders were lumbering down for four. On the 367th lap, a green flag waved for the final time. On the 369th lap, Kenseth wrested the lead from Mark Martin. On the 400th lap, he won. Bowyer finished sixth. Edwards finished seventh. Johnson finished ninth. Being from Wisconsin and, by definition, terminally humble, Fennig began by saying, on a post-race radio interview, that by gosh, that sly Matt Kenseth hoodwinked the opposition by calling for two tires. Then Kenseth arrived on the scene and said, I know we were both thinking about the same thing. We came down pit road. As I slid into the stall, I said, Jimmy, are you sure you dont want to try two (tires)? He (Fennig) didnt even hesitate. Hes, like, Two tires, two tires, in plenty of time before the guys took off. It was not a problem. It went smooth Almost like we planned it. The two Wisconsinites Kenseth of Cambridge and Fennig of Milwaukee left another race track just pleased as punch.Two Tires To Paradise AgainKenseth strategy good for second win of Sprint Cup seasonJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekMatt Kenseth and his crew chief, Jimmy Fennig, went with a two-tire pit stop late in the FedEx 400 Benefitting Autism Speaks race on Sunday. While most other drivers went with four new tires, Kenseth got his second win of the season, outdistancing Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards. MATT KENSETH SPRINT CUP SERIESNo. 17 CROWN ROYAL FORDEdwards Guitar Auctioned For A Good CauseThe custom-made Gibson guitar that served as the trophy for Carl Edwards recent Nationwide Series victory at Nashville Superspeedway was auctioned off to raise money for the family of Jonathan Bunting, a Roush Fenway employee who lost his life in an automobile accident. The winning bid, $20,400, came from a resident of Sedalia, Mo., just 70 miles from Edwards Columbia home. Other Roush Fenway employees contributed an additional $30,000 to the fund.Know Your NASCAR1.

c oach Sean Foley said he was p leasantly surprised to see W oods look as though he had n ot lost much from when he h ad last played in the M asters. Woods said he hurt himself o n the opening tee shot at S awgrass. The knee acted up, and t hen the Achilles followed a fter that, and then the calf s tarted cramping up, Woods s aid after he withdrew. Everything started getting t ight, so its just a whole c hain reaction. If he plays at Congressional, he likely will have played nine holes of competition between the Masters and the U.S. Open. Minutes before the statement was posted on his website, Woods said on Twitter, Bummed that my left leg has me on the sidelines, but I want, and expect, to be at the US Open. Will do all I can to get there. It would not be the first time Woods has played the U.S. Open with so little competition. When he won his last major at the 2008 U.S. Open, he had not played a tournament in two months because of arthroscopic surgery on his left knee immediately after the Masters. Doctors later discovered stress fractures in his left leg. Woods wound up winning at Torrey Pines in a 19-hole hole playoff.

By LARRYLEVEY News-Sun correspondent AVON PARK When Jim D eal, age 67, originally from W auchula, now living in A von Park, retired as a medi cal technician, he had no g ame plan. I have no long-range p lans, he says. I just take i t one day at a time. W hatever happens: thats w hat my retirement is all a bout. But hell quickly tell you h e does not intend to travel. Ive traveled as much as I w anted to. You come see me. I m not going to see you. T hats how I feel. Deal, who has one son and t wo grandsons, also says h es not about to sit around, t hinking of finding a partner. H is first wife passed away a nd his second marriage e nded in divorce. My idea i s that I can take care of m yself, but Im open for w hatever might come a long. And what have come a long are his chickens. I was living in Avon Park E states when I retired. E verybody there has an acre o f land and the closest house i s far away. I said to myself, Im going to get a couple of c hickens.Well, those three c hickens turned out to be a nd a lot of them have come a nd gone 25 chickens. Why chickens? When I was growing up i n Wauchula, my aunt was a n animal lover. She had c hickens, goats, a milk cow a nd she was big into bee h ives. I remember as a child g oing over there. She had t hese nest boxes on the side o f the barn. Id reach up and t ake out an egg. It sort of e xcited me. And thats how i t got interested. When he first became an urban chicken farmer, as s uch folks are now called, p redators were his main conc ern. Stray dogs would decim ate them, he says. They d ont eat the chickens. It was j ust the thrill of the kill. So I f enced off the area, but most c hickens can fly. Theyd fly o ver the fence but so far t hey havent been outside the f ence when the dogs happen t o come by. The chickens are p retty well protected. Deal enjoys the discipline t he chickens add to his life. Its like a job, he says. It requires getting up early t o let them out of the coop a playhouse I bought at T oys R Us and remodeled. R egimentation is good. It p uts some structure into my l ife. Id hate to think I could s tay in bed all day. Part of his job is collecti ng the eggs about eight or 1 0 every day and passing t hem out to his friends. Chickens, he says, have t heir own personalities. Some are friendly and a re good pets and some are n ot. Some are aggressive to t he other chickens and some a re not. When they go up in t he coop at night, sometimes t here are rumbles and r uckuses to see who gets the t op tier. Its in their nature to g o to the highest point. Daisy, a short and squatt y black Cochin bantam w ith fully feathered legs, is o ne of his favorites. If I sit in the swing, s hell hop up and sit beside m e or else I can take hold of h er and pet her. The Pontiac collection Antique cars are another f acet of Deals retirement l ife, although such cars have b een part of his life long b efore he retired. These c ars like the chickens a re a pleasure, he says. I go to car shows and meet and talk to a lot of people and make friends with them. He now owns two 1953 Pontiacs he has restored and he tells a poignant story about one of them. My fifth grade teacher in Wauchula was Mrs. Farr, who owned a 1953, twotoned green Pontiac. She parked it every day on this side street and Id walk buy it twice a day, thinking, This is the most beautiful automobile Ive ever seen. One day Im going to have a car like that. And he did: a 1953 Pontiac Chieftain, a twodoor, solid green deluxe sedan. To make it look like Mrs. Farrs, he painted the bottom pistachio green and the top dark green. But the story gets better. He wanted Mrs. Farrs daughter, Jeraldine Farr Crews, who lives in Wauchula, to see the car. I was driving the car into town one day and was passing by their home. She was in the front yard, so I pulled in and she saw me. She walked over and I said, Jeraldine, its James Deal. She said, James, I think we used to have a car just like this.I said, You did! Prior to this, Deal had written an article about the car published in the Pontiac Club Magazine. The story ended with, Now I have th e car of an elementary schoo l boys dream. Deal gave Jeraldine a copy of the article. She wa s quite moved with all the www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, May 18, 2011Page 7B The retirement life For Jim Deal, it means becoming an urban chicken farmer and more News-Sun photo by LARRYLEVE Y Jim Deal of Avon Park, an urban chicken farmer, stands next to his chicken coop with two of his 25 chickens.

And later, when the Wauchula Advocate republished the article, Jeraldine called me to say it was very touching, that everybody in the county can now see it, and what a great tribute it is to her mother.Finding time for Avon Park history The most recent add-on to Deals retirement life came about several years ago when he stopped in the Depot Museum in Avon Park to look around. He soon became a volunteer, at first as a handyman, drilling holes, hanging pictures, moving things, and washing dishes from the dining car lunches. He then took on the position of a railroad conductor, complete with uniform. He wears the uniform in the museum as he tours groups about to have lunch in the dining car. Come lunchtime, he changes into his waiters outfit. Sometimes, he says, they dont know its me in two different costumes. Volunteering is a rewarding experience, he says. I always had a tough time talking in front of people, but when I put on the uniform, it makes it much eas ier for me. Im now on the histori cal societys board of dire ctors. So Ive gone from dishwasher to director. What all this has done for me is to increase my selfconfidence, my social skil ls and Ive learned something about Avon Park.

By DAVID BAUDER APTelevision Writer NEWYORK NBC is b etting on the Playboy club, C helsea Handler and a raft of r omantic comedies among t he dozen new series it has o rdered in its latest attempt to c ome back from a long slump t hat has made it televisions f ourth-place broadcast netw ork. The network outlined its f all plans on Sunday, opening a hectic week in which b roadcasters unveil their fall s chedules to advertisers in h opes they will make multim illion dollar commitments t o buy commercials. It was t he first new schedule formul ated by NBC Entertainment C hairman Bob Greenblatt, a ppointed when Comcast t ook over NBC Universal. NBC ordered six new dram as and six new comedies, w ith half of them on the fall s chedule and the rest planned f or later debuts. The Playboy Club, a 1 960s-era drama set in C hicagos bunny world, will s pice up NBCs Monday lineu p. Two new comedies will a lso debut in the fall on W ednesday nights with C hristina Applegate, Will A rnett and Hank Azaria a mong the featured stars. This is a marathon to r ebuild this network, said G reenblatt, who said he w anted bigger and broader c omedies to bring more v iewers back to NBC. The n etwork has lagged far b ehind CBS, Fox and ABC t his season. The strong debut o f the music competition The Voice has given NBC m ore optimism, and that s how will be back for anothe r run next winter. NBCs midseason schedule i ncludes a two-hour edition of Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday nights. Asked if that meant NBC had a commitment from host Donald Trump that he wouldnt run for president, Greenblatt said, Were putting a pin in that for the next 24 hours or so. Things will become clearer soon. But he said NBC was prepared to go forward with a new host for Celebrity Apprentice if Trump decides to run. I hope we dont have to go there, he said. By devoting its Sunday night prime-time schedule in the fall to pro football, NBC appeared confident that the NFLs labor problems would be solved. Greenblatt said NBC is developing some high-profile reality competitions as substitutes for football but said that were feeling pretty optimistic that football will be there. NBC News is developing a newsmagazine with Brian Williams as host and as soon as its ready, we will put it on the schedule, with enthusiasm, Greenblatt said. Such a series will have a greater variety of stories than Dateline NBC, which remains on the networks Friday schedule. Unlike the entertainment division, NBC News has stayed atop the ratings with Nightly News and Today. Greenblatt also would not say who, if anyone, will replace actor Steve Carell when The Office returns for a new season next fall. The comedy Rock wont be on NBCs fall schedule but will return in midseason, the delay due to creator and star Tina Feys pregnancy, he said. The series Chuck is returning for a final season of 13 episodes. Last seasons high-profile science fiction series The Event was canceled, so its relatively few viewers wont find out what the event actually was. NBC will also pull the plug on Law & Order: Los Angeles. NBC is also circling Jennifer Love Hewitt as a candidate to join the cast of Law & Order: SVU as a third detective with Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni sometime during next season, Greenblatt said. Two of NBCs new series have firm midseason time slots: a series adaptation of The Firm will be on Sundays schedule when football season ends, and Smash, a drama that was Steven Spielbergs idea about an effort to put on a Broadway musical about the life of Marilyn Monroe, will replace The Playboy Club in midseason. NBCs plan is to run full seasons of The Playboy Club and Smash without reruns. Aside from The Playboy Club, here are the NBC series that will debut on the networks fall schedule: Up All Night, a comedy about new parents created by Lorne Michaels and Emily Spivey of Saturday Night Live. Applegate portrays a successful public relations executive and Arnett is her stay-at-home husband, and Maya Rudolph is also featured. Free Agents, a romantic comedy with Azaria and Kathryn Hahn of HBOs Hung as public relations executives on romantic rebounds. Whitney, a romantic comedy starring Whitney Cummings of Chelsea Lately as half of a happily unmarried couple. She tries to break the relationship out of boredom after attending a friends wedding. Prime Suspect, an adaptation of a British series that stars Maria Bello as a homicide detective in New York City trying to navigate the boysclub of a new police precinct. Grimm, an elaborate drama inspired by Grimms Fairy Tales. It features a homicide detective who learns he is the descendant of an elite group of hunters who fight to keep the world safe from supernatural creatures. Here are the four series NBC has decided to ma ke that do not have time slo ts yet: Awake, a compl ex drama about a reality-defyin g double life. Adetecti ve regains consciousness fo llowing a car accident to be told that his wife was kill ed but his teenage son survive s. He soon finds that there is a parallel reality where h is wife survives and son dies. Are You Ther e, Vodka? Its Me, Chelsea, is a comic look at Handlers li fe based on the E! Entertainment network star s book. Handlers character is a strong-willed bartende r. Handler herself has a recu rring role playing her sister. Best Friends Forever , a comedy about a wom an who flies across the count ry to move in with her be st friend when the woman s husband files for divorc e, only to cause disruptions in the friends relationship. Bent, a comedy sta rring Amanda Peet as a su ccessful lawyer and sing le mom, about her relationsh ip with the contractor she hir es to remodel her kitchen.

DearAbby: Im a senior i n high school and about to g raduate. The week after g raduation, one of my close f riends is getting married. I h ave no qualms about the m arriage, but Im confused a bout the pre-wedding part ies. The bride and groom are r egistered at three stores and h ave had a Tupperware party a lready. However, I have r eceived an invitation to a l ingerie party to which g uests have been instructed t o bring the bride lingerie w ith gift receipts attached. Am I wrong in thinking t hat buying intimate apparel i s the responsibility of the c ouple? I plan to buy them a wedd ing gift from the registry, b ut I feel odd being asked to e ssentially contribute to their s ex life. Abby, if I decline the invit ation, what would be the p roper way to do it? Bringing a Blender in Montana DearB.A.B.: If you are u nable to attend the shower, a ll you need to say is youre u navailable on that date. You d o not have to give a reason. H owever, lingerie showers c an be a fun way for women t o bond with each other. I o nce attended one at which a g uest jokingly brought the b ride a pair of handcuffs. (In M ontana, a set of spurs m ight make an interesting g ag gift.) However, if you prefer not t o contribute to the couples s ex life, why not bring a h igh-necked flannel nightg own? Your gift could be the t alk of the party. Readers, care to offer any o ther gift suggestions? DearAbby: I represent Operation Paperback: Recycled Reading for the Troops. Our 10,000 volunteers, at their own expense, collect gently used paperback books and send them to military members and organizations deployed all over the world. Since 1999, we have sent over a million books and have received thanks from Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, Germany, ships at sea, and dozens of places on the globe where our military serves. Because units are continually being deployed, reassigned and recalled, we struggle to maintain current address lists. We would appreciate the assistance of your forum in spreading the word to service members and their families that they need only to go to operationpaperback.org to register, and we will see to it that they have quality reading material to provide an escape from their day-to-day trials. Thank you for your help. Dan Bowers, Red Lion, Pa. DearDan: What a wonderful offer. But be careful what you wish for, because Dear Abby readers are the most generous and patriotic people in the world. DearAbby: My stepdaughter came and cleaned our house when my wife her mother was ill. I appreciated her efforts, until I noticed she had put the toilet brush in the dishwasher with the dishes. I quietly removed it. Am I overreacting because I no longer want to eat at her house? This made me extremely uncomfortable because most of our family gatherings are at her house. Turned Off in Texas DearTurned Off: Ew! Had I been in your position, when I saw what she had done, Id have hit high C. And I wouldnt have been subtle about removing the toilet brush from the dishwasher. What a gross lapse of judgment. I wouldnt want to eat at her house either, and Id let my spouse know exactly why. (Please tell me your stepdaughter didnt learn this from her mother.) Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

It keeps us from following our hearts desire and stops us dead in our tracks. Perfectionism triggers procrastination. This is when we tell ourselves; we dont have time to do it right so we do nothing. We have all suffered with this affliction. We all have had dreams and those dreams were tossed aside because we told ourselves that we would never be good enough to accomplish this. Those words were heard coming out of other peoples mouths at first and then we began to parrot them. We do not have to listen to those negative words any longer. It is time that we quieted those voices and replaced them with loving words of encouragement. Loving yourself is about building yourself up and not shutting your creativeness down. All our lives we were chastised for being spontaneous and a dreamer. We have the ability in ourselves to follow our dreams if we will quit listening to the perfectionism that lurks in those negative voices that haunt us. We have a gift to give the world. It is a gift of creativity and making that gift is filled with joy. Do you remember as a child doing something for your mother and spending hours working on it? When you were conceiving the idea, putting your secret plan into action and then presenting the gift, you were filled with great joy. You never expected to have your little dreams dashed by a perfectionist mother who only found the flaws in your work. After that our little hearts only heard those voices. Our minds recreated them and keep on perpetuating that abuse with everything we thought about doing. It didnt take long for those words to be part of our daily thrashing. I know that this is hard to think about, but when we look at what happened in our childhood and forgive those who hurt us, we can begin our journey toward our dreams. Those dreams have be en force down so far in our minds that we can hardly remember them. As you begin to quiet those voice s you will start finding them again. Loving yourself is abou t recognizing when you hea r those voices and putting a stop to them. You are won dering just how to do this This is what we loving refer to as FLYWashing. When you hear yourse lf say a negative statement i n your mind or even out loud, I want you to turn that statement around and put a positive spin on it. Then say it back to yourself seven times. For example, I will never get anything accom plished, I get so sidetracked. Turn that around to say, I am a creative per son and I have great ideas I can learn how to be organized it takes babysteps. Today as you follow your routines be aware of the conversations you are having with yourself. Recognize the harsh ones and gently turn them into a loving positive affirmatio n. This is what FLYing is al l about! Finally Loving Yourse lf is the gift you give the world.
