United Way HIghlands County Director Julie Fells is excited about her second year heading the Day of Caring and has numerous projects planned for the day. Everything has gone really good.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Alocal veterinarian is advising pet owners to be careful of an unusually active flea and tick season this year brought on by the unseasonably warm weather. It is going to be a totally abnormal year for fleas and ticks. We have already seen an explosion in the flea population, Dr. Jeff Saunders said. Saunders, a veterinarian in Avon Park, wants to help pet prevent severe cases of flea infestation and is providing advice and education on the pet problem. Yes, it could be dangerous, said Saunders. We have given several blood transfusions to pets already this year. It started early this year, around Dec. 1, and the population is exploding because of the lack of cooler weather. Last year was pretty bad, but this year is starting earlier, said Saunders. The long streak of warm dry weather is causing the problems, which should recede somewhat when the mercury is above 92 degrees. The fleas die off when the temperature gets above 92 degrees. They stop reproducing when the temperature gets above 91.8 degrees, so the hot weather helps, Saunders explained.

You will hear me say this many, many times as we go into the budget season, Helms said. Are some of the services we are providing worth maintaining? Helms was taking about having the commissioners rank the services to help determine which ones would receive a priority. Helms informed the board that county staff has already submitted their rankings and Helms asked the board for their input, as well as asking if there was a need for focus groups or involvement of other county stakeholders. We are not talking about level of funding here, we are talking about services and how they rank here, Helms clarified, but he did make a prediction about further decreases in county revenues. I firmly believe we will have a reduction in property values again this year, Helms said. I expect that to be around 5 percent less in property values. Helms made it clear that a 5 percent drop in property values would Helms asks for ranking of county services Wants to find out which ones are nice but not necessary Helms By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK Administrators at South Florida Community College were as shocked at the arrest of William C. Morrison Jr. on campus April 24 as anyone else was. Morrison was hired in January as lead instructor, supervision and management. He has been charged with grand theft over $100,000 and scheme to defraud by the states attorney in Orange County. The News-Sun was told by the states attorney office that more detailed information is not available because it will not become public record until Morrison has a lawyer and the discovery process has begun. The warrant for Dr. Morrisons arrest was issued in March 2012, so there was no information related to the charges at the time the college conducted its criminal Jailed SFCC lead instructor had good background check Morrison See HELMS, page 4A See SFCC, page 7A News-Sun file photo Around 400 volunteers will spend today performing services a various locations around the county as part of the United Way Day of Caring.

C M Y K By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Commissioners voted 4-0 Tuesday to move emergency funds around to replace an air conditioner unit for the county jail. There is no ventilation in our jail, Sheriff Susan Benton told the commission. An air conditioner went out and there are no windows in a cell block, so this is sort of an emergency. There were no estimates in place for the board to review, but Benton assured them that noon Tuesday was the deadline. I am guestimatingthat the cost is going to be under $10,000, Benton said. County Administrator Ricky Helms told the board that there is an emergency purchasing process, and a fund set aside, but there may need to be funds taken from other accounts to pay for the purchase. If there are insufficient funds in that cost center, then I would recommend to the board to move the funds into the account, Helms said. Since we dont know what the cost is going to be, I would suggest approving it now. Otherwise, you would not be able to act on a budget amendment until the third Thursday of this month, Helms explained. Commissioner Don Elwell asked for clarification on where the funds were being transferred from and if there was another source than contingency that could be tapped. The sheriff was also asking for a budget amendment for the new cars. You are taking $191,000 out of personal services. Is there not another $10,000 you can squeeze from there? Elwell asked. That money is not really coming from personnel services. It comes from diligent business practices. Our workers comp company has given us a rebate for workers comp. So its really new money. It is not money sitting there unspent, Benton explained. Benton replied that taking the money from the request for new vehicles was not optional unless you dont want to buy any cars and put them in next years budget and theyll get cut. The sheriff reminded the board that the fund used for maintenance was not part of the sheriffs budget, but maintenance for the buildings were the countys budget, not the HCSOs. I am not aware if we just have $10,000 that we can switch from the law enforcement side. If there is, it would be fine to move, Benton added. Since law enforcement is a function that is in the same complex, I dont think it would be a stretch to use those funds, Helms said. The board voted 4-0 later in the meeting to approve the sheriffs budget adjustments to fund $191,000 for new vehicles.

PB: Power Ball Lottery Center Courtesy photo A group of nearly 20 volunteers got down and dirty on Saturday clearing trash and debris from Catfish Creek and the 10 side canals. They also removed many navigational hazards such as downed tree limbs and overgrown brush that has accumulated over the past two seasons of very low water levels in Lake June-in-Winter tributary. The volunteers are residents and members of the Placid Lakes Homeowners Association. Support and the r emoval of the collected debris was in cooperation with Keep Highlands County Beautiful. The Highlands County Lakes Association, through a grant from the Highlands County Tourist Development Council Lakes Fund, grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and provided water and sodas for the hungry volunteers. The PLHO Association has obtained permits and plans to dredge some of the upper canals and creek to remove some of the sand and sediment that has eroded into the creek. One of the muddy volunteers said, We want to be ready when rain finally comes and Lake June gets back to a normal level.

SFCC celebrates commencement on Thursday Sheriff gets new AC for jail; new cruisers Benton Special to the News-SunParents who notice their young child beginning to stutter should seek help right away; and help is available at most public libraries. In the past, experts incorrectly believed that paying attention to a childs stuttering would exacerbate the situation. It was even feared that offering the child therapy would arouse the childs awareness and cause more stuttering, said Ehud Yairi, speech-language pathologist and researcher at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and TelAviv University. However, research by Yairi published in the Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research reveals that all children may be aware of the differences between fluent speech and stuttering as early as age 3, and that they often display a social preference for fluent-speaking children by the time they are 4. These findings should provide support to the important idea that we should shift from a hands-offapproach to more direct therapy techniques, and even more so with school-age children, added Barry Guitar, Ph.D., of University of Vermont. Any time parents are concerned about a child's fluency, said Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation, they should educate themselves about the disorder and the many ways they can work to prevent stuttering from becoming a chronic problem. The book, If Your Child Stutters: AGuide for Parents, also available in Spanish, answers questions that parents and teachers often have. Written by leading experts, it describes the difference between normal disfluencies and stuttering and gives tips for parents of ways to help their child immediately. The book is available at the Lake Placid Memorial Library. Book on stuttering available at LP Library By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Thursday, May 10, a special Salute to Peace Officers ceremony is scheduled for 9 a.m. in the board room at the Highlands County Government Center. Sheriff Susan Benton wants the community to know everyone is welcome to attend and pay tribute to those officers who have died while on duty. National Police Week is May 13-19. According to the National Law Enforcement OfficersMemorial Fund website, it is a time set aside by an act of Congress in 1962, signed by President John F. Kennedy. Memorial Services began in 1982. They now include a service on the steps of the Capital building and a candlelight vigil. Highlands County s memorial service takes place earlier so that those who wish may also travel to Washington, D.C. for the week of national tributes and conferences. Speaking for Benton, Nell Hayes, public information officer, said, Every two days, somewhere in our nation, an officer will be Annual Salute to Peace Officers set for May 10 See SALUTE, page 5A

C M Y K When presented with a list of questions regarding the arrest of faculty member William C. Morrison Jr. on campus, their response was quick and thorough, answeri ng every question fully and providing Morrisons applic ation and resume. In a county where governments and agencies fight r eleasing information the public has a need to know, S FCC stands out for its sense of responsibility and connection to the people it serves. For example, its response is the opposite of the Orange C ounty Sheriffs Department which did not return three p hone calls and an email asking for information regarding the charges against Morrison. The states attorney office did return a call, but would n ot release any information. The News-Sun was told the charges were not a matter of p ublic record until Morrison had a lawyer and the discovery portion of the case had b egun. What shocked us about the unfortunate incident had nothing to do with the college it was how quickly people assumed SFCC was to blame. The most common reaction we received was how could SFCC have messed up the background check. The immediate assumption was screening committee incompetence or nepotism. The fact is, Warren Buffet would have hired Morrison. Adecorated retired U. S. Army colonel with degrees from Nova Southeastern University, Golden Gate University (in San Francisco), Howard University School of Divinity and West Virginia State University, Morrison has an impressive background. His references included the dean of Bethune-Cookman University, a retired general and a vice-president of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems Company. Everything he claimed checked out. There was nothing to indicate any problems. The loss of trust between public official and private individual is a serious problem. The widening gap between elected representative and citizen is a direct result of years of arrogance and paternalism on the part of too many governments. The public has been told too many times that we know whats best for you, trust us, and you wouldnt understand. Now the results of all that condescending nonsense is coming home, and we all are the worse for it. We would love to see the college initiate a course in open government and leadership ethics. We think every candidate for office should attend such a class even before submitting a letter of intent to run. In the meantime, we thank the college administration for its forthright and timely response. It has proven itself to be a gold standard, which other authorities should strive to achieve. Hopefully, we can now all return our focus to where it belongs the good work the college does, its continuing growth, and the hard working students who use the opportunity to learn more and better their lives.

Restructuring would provide moreEditor: Raising property taxes to fund $373an-hour school board salaries? I would prefer my tax money go to pay an actual teacher, teaching in the classroom all day, rather than to a school board member who met 82 hours in 2011 (according to archived records) at a base salary of $30,616, with time enough to hold down a full-time day job in the private sector. That is $373.36 an hour, not to mention a costly benefits package and better retirement than school teachers. Imagine that, $373.36 an hour for a part-time community service job. With this type of spending no wonder our school system is now set to further bleed us property owners to fund this type of flagrant waste. Michigan pays board members a stipend of $25 to $35 a meeting. Many states pay stipends of $100 to $200 a month. The legal process to go from salaried to a stipend system is a local one, according to Representative Denise Grimsly. Either the superintendent or an elected school board member makes a motion to restructure school board salaries back into the budget and initiate a stipend system. Then the school board votes to pass or fail this initiative. This restructuring would provide enough money and benefits for nearly five new classroom teachers. Asa Jackson SebringNeed to back off the smear campaignEditor: The Republicans have started their smear campaign against President Obama. But with their conviently short memory span have forgotten the horrors brought on the United States and Iraq by the previous Republican administration. As of this date 4,287 of our young men and women are dead in Iraq, with more than 32,000 reported wounded, and at least 120,000 Iraqis killed in this illegal war on a sovereign nation that was based on the lies of George Bush: Saddams weapons of mass destruction, that there would be a mushroom cloud over New York, intended to frighten us into believing we were about to be annihilated by Saddam. Mission Accomplished was a banner that was displayed on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln in a televised address by George W. Bush, May 1, 2003. Now, nine years later there is not the slightest indication that any of the above existed in Iraq, just proof of the lies made by Bush. So before the republicans take one more step in their smear campaign they should remember those words spoken more than 2,000 years ago let he who is without sin, cast the first stone. It is one of the most well-known lessons of the Bible. Sandy Oleesky SebringEconomic problems not just caused by RepublicansEditor: In rebuttal to Mr. Oleeskys comments recently: Under President Obama and the Democrats our nation is facing the worst economic crisis since 1930. For example, the nations GDPdropped to 2.2 percent for Quarter 1 2012 causing the dollar to slide further. Food stamp recipients are up 70 percent since 2007. The campaign to keep student loan interest rates low, while 50 percent of recent grads are unemployed. Obama vowed to preserve space jobs when the shuttle program ended, but now that it has, unemployment has risen to a new high as thousands of aerospace workers are laid off. Oh, I forgot, we are wasting all that money shooting off all that money into space. Of course, they dont consider that all that money goes right back into our economy. Billions have been spent on phony stimulus payments to business that immediately go bankrupt. Billions in aid to sworn enemies of the United States every year while our own soldiers suffer and die for lack of medical care after being blown up in wars that Obama and his Democratic cronies wont end. Oh, I forgot, its all the fault of the evil Bush and the evil Republicans. Obama and his sidekicks have had three years to begin cleaning up the supposed Republican mess and things continue to get worse. Os agenda is to create a new socialist government nanny state like so many others have tried before and failed at. Spending is at the highest level ever, and continues to grow, while incomes drop and unemployment climbs with the attendant decrease in production and employment. But I keep forgetting its all the fault of the evil Bush and the Republicans. I am so sick and tired of the Democratic whining blaming Bush and the Republicans while Emperor Nero Obama fiddles and goes gadding about the country on the taxpayers dime. Oleesky and others like him are the real problem and our problems will continue until our leaders learn to work together for the common good, and not for the party line. John Payne Sebring I dont know if its Dodd-Frank. Or if its Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd themselves. Or if its just the big bankers. But the reality is, our banking system is completely screwed up when it comes to getting a home loan. The problem used to be that the banks, in collusion with a federal government, made bad loans to bad people. Thats what helped bring us the housing bubble and the inevitable bust that followed. Today the problem is reversed. The banking system is so nuts it wont even allow banks to make good loans to good people. An example of our new backward banking system in action is whats happened to the daughter of a friend of mine. Shes a 29-year-old schoolteacher. When she was 24 she went out and bought herself a townhome that a bank had ended up owning after a foreclosure. The bank was buried in the townhome for $560,000. The schoolteacher got the house for $360,000 and put $110,000 down. Her interest rate five years ago was 6.75 percent. Today the townhome is worth more than what the teacher paid for it and now she wants to refinance and get a low-interest loan. But shes just been told by Big Bank that she doesnt qualify for a 3 or 4 percent loan. Theyve even told her she shouldnt have been able to qualify for her original loan. Think about this: Here is a teacher who has never missed a house payment. She has her monthly mortgage payment taken out of her bank account automatically. Shes never missed paying her taxes. Shes never missed paying her homeowners dues. Yet she is treated as though somehow shed suddenly stop making her mortgage payments if the bank gave her a new loan at 3 or 4 percent. The schoolteacher is looked at by the bank as if she was a future criminal. I come from a generation where people were allowed to have a personal relationship with their bank. I used to be able to go down and talk to my local banker about a loan. Id tell him what I wanted to do and how much money I needed. The banker would say, Mike, Ive known you for 30 years. I know youre good for it. Now theres no such thing as a personal relationship with your banker. The local bank is owned by a bunch of international mega-corporations and the management changes every 3 minutes. Dodd-Frank has created a situation where only the large banks will survive. Small banks are essentially being outlawed. That means our ability to ever have a personal relationship with a banker is also being outlawed. And one bad result of that will be to create more people who become upside-down on their mortgages. If we want to bring the U.S. economy back to life we have to do it through the housing industry. But theres no way in hell housing is going to recover if banks are no longer even giving good loans to good and rightful people. The big bankers and politicians co-produced the meltdown of the economy. Theyre the criminals, not the honest schoolteacher looking for a better interest rate on her mortgage. If were going to bring this country back, the Dodds and Franks of Washington are going to have to rewrite the laws so we can have personal relationships with local banks again.

Sprays, dips, shampoos and other products can be used to help combat an infestation problem until it is under control. Vacuuming plays an important role in getting a flea infestation under control. Vacuum before the first home treatment, then daily for the next few weeks. This will help remove newly emerged fleas, flea dirt, eggs and some larvae from the carpets. Treating your home with carpet powders, carpet sprays, room foggers or home sprays will help control fleas. Every area your pet frequents should be treated including the garage, basement, kennel and yard. Call your vet if your pet seems to be lethargic or has uncontrolled scratching. Kansas State University resulted in Tampa becoming t he Flea Capital of the U.S. Dryden investigated more than 1,000 homes in the Tampa area and r esearched how the insects reproduce and react to certain flea products. I found that the number one cause of ongoing infestations was lack of an understanding of how to use the flea control product, Drydens website states. Saunders agreed with Drydens assessment. The fleas have not developed a tolerance to treatment products, if used properly. There was some thought a bout that going around, but after some research, it was discovered that most p eople dont use the products as directed, Saunders said. Some people try to treat just the d ogwho is going outside and not treating the household cat, who stays indoors. The cat keeps the inventory and re-infects the dog. Some people are only treating when t he fleas become visible. By then, the animal is infested and the treatment needs to be consistent, Saunders explained. Thats one of the biggest problems. P eople dont treat regularly or treat every other month for the fleas. That i nconsistency keeps the treatment from working to its fullest. Just a trip to the mailbox or outside to hang up clothes can bring in a lot of fleas. Its not that noticeable. The fleas drink the blood and causes the animal to become anemic, Saunders said. It can be deadly, especially in smaller animals. Newborn puppies or kittens are especially at risk, Saunders added. Most of the time, you can catch it b efore it becomes fatal. If you notice that your animal is not acting right, bring it in immediately or contact your veterinarian, he said. Dont wait for a few days to see if they get better. Most of the problems can be addressed before something serious happens, said Saunders. Consistent monthly treatment is the key to keeping your pet safe, Saunders said, but he suggested to stay away from the cheaper off-the-shelf products. Be careful of the cheaper products developed in the s. When it comes to flea control, you get what you pay for. Some of the inexpensive products can actually harm your pet, especially cats, he said. When the little guys seem to be droopy or lethargic or not as active, if they are scratching a lot, if they stop taking food, that may mean the animal is anemic.. Call any vet in the county and ask questions. We are all here to help. Buy the better products and treat consistentl y. Remember that a vacuum is your friend. Use it on carpets regularly. The vibration can cause fleas to wake from their cocoon stage early. It also removes the pests, he said. According to Saunders, safe and effective treatments for fleas and ticks is inexpensive and is done by weight. Costs for the treatments run around $10 per month, Saunders said, but larger dogs, those around 150 pounds or more, can cost upwards to $25 per month. For more information, or to speak with Dr. Saunders, you can call his office at 453-5700. I would be happy to talk to anyone about their pets care, he said.

Helms said the ranking system was made necessary because of several economic factors and a perfect storm of effects on all areas of the economy. The ranking was necessary to provide administration clear communications and oversight as well as guidelines for the initial budget presentation. The ranking would also help county staff find further efficiencies. Helms also pointed out that governments all over the state were in uncharted waters when it came to experience with the current state of the economy. There is a limited amount of leadership in this. The fact that they have lingered for so long, I dont think we have ever experienced this in our collective knowledge, Helms said. Especially housing. No one expected this to linger this long. The business recession, property tax legislation, the real estate market crash, the stock market meltdown, a municipal debt market crisis and the introduction of post employment benefits were all factors that created across-the-board cuts and forced the staff to cut services, Helms said. The results so far have been hiring freezes and elimination of vacant positions. The economy has also put capital outlay in jeopardy. The most you can go without capital purchases (is) two years before you see the snowball effects, Helms said. V ehicle maintenance will increase and replacements will increase if less is spent on consistent maintenance. Public safety, including police and fire, were listed as essential items while traffic management and code enforcement were listed as minimum needs. Libraries were listed as minimum necessary services. The nice but not essential items included public arts programs, the county website, community events and possibly the Community Redevelopment Agencies. May 17 was set as a date to go through the items, but that would be just the starting point, Board Chairman Jack Richie said. Continued from page 1A Helms seeks to prioritize county services munity making a difference. These volunteer teams from 35 different local businesses are matched with United Way partner agencies and other non-profit organizations in the county to complete much-needed projects, Fells said. Todays 37 new projects may be a bit smaller than the one big project last year which was the demolition of a house but nonetheless, each will help countys wellknown organizations. We arent knocking down a house this year. I tried. I looked all over for one, too, Fells said with a laugh. This year, teams will be doing projects such as laying sod at the Boys and Girls Club, working with clients at Ridge Area Arc, decorating the Big Brothers Big Sisters office and yard work for Nu-Hope Elder Care clients, said Fells. The Boys and Girls Club is the United Ways newest partner agency, according to Fells. The volunteers and participants arent all businesses and adults this year, either. Groups of students are joining in on the Day of Caring activities to also make a difference right in their own schools. The Kiwanis Club at each of the schools (Sun N Lake Elementary, Sebring Middle School and Sebring High School) will be doing service projects for their schools, also, Fells said. Other projects for Day of Caring include Alan Jay Automotive Team providing service at the Childrens Advocacy Center, SunTrust group painting an Arc home, and a group of 18 working at the Hansen House on Sparta Road. Following the servicefilled morning, the United Way will host a barbecue lunch as a reward for all of the hard work the volunteers provided. The food will be donated by the Palms Court Catering and the lunch will begin at noon at Buttonwood Bay. For more information or to become a volunteer or business partner, contact Fells at 453-3401.

The annual Healthy Kids D ay event was held Saturday afternoon at the Highlands C ounty YMCAand provided tons of activities and fun for community children. Scheck was most impressed with the Kids Z umba demonstration. There were at least 30 or 40 people out there dancing, s aid Scheck. The Highlands County YMCAwill soon offer Kids Z umba as part of the many fitness classes and activities f or members throughout the week, according to Marketing Director Michelle Cathey. Kids and families enjoyed b asketball games, water slides, bounce houses and other sports demonstrations. One unique aspect of Healthy Kids Day was the Masonic Lodges Child Identification Program. Local M asons volunteered their time to set up a station that o ffered kids the opportunity to make possible life-saving kits at no cost to the families. Volunteer Ann Cains explained what was included i n the kits. The kit comes with a DNAsample, fingerprints, contact information and a video. Its all placed on a d isc. So if something happens and, God forbid, a child goes missing, all the parent would have to do is give this kit to the police officer, they pop it into their computer in their squad car and every piece of information on that child pops up right in front of them, said Cains. Her husband, Don, was a few seats away, busy questioning a Heartland Christian School kindergartner on her favorite things. Cains asked the student her favorite place to visit, where she goes when shes upset and other detailed questions that could provide information to the whereabouts of a missing child. www.newssun.comNews-SunW ednesday, May 2, 2012Page 5A hometown biz; 9.347"; 13"; Black plus three; process, hometown biz dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 6 6 3 3 band will be playing new and old bluegrass and country from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The winery will be open for tours, wine tasting and nibbles.

To bring attention to this alarming statistic, during Police Week, we ask that blue ribbons be flown from vehicle antennas to honor our Peace Officers. Sadly, 12 Florida law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in 2011, although none from Highlands County. Of the 12, seven were killed by gunfire, one died of a heart attack, one of heat exhaustion and three in vehicle accidents one of those while in pursuit. Five Highlands County officers have died in the last 36 years: Sgt.

Rick Scott has signed a bill that would ban state and local governments from hiring any companies that do business in Cuba or Syria. Influential business interests and the governments of Floridas top two trading partners, Brazil and Canada, have warned the law would discourage investment from foreign firms. It is unclear which, or how many, companies would be affected by the legislation. Scott says although many Floridians remain unemployed its important to stand up against tyranny and for political freedom because principles matter.

C M Y K By GARYFINEOUT Associated PressT ALLAHASSEE An independent task force wants major changes, but not an outright repeal, of Floridas stand your ground law a fter the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. State Sen. Chris Smith, the organizer of the group, d elivered the recommendations to Gov. Rick Scott and legislative leaders on Monday. Smith said the group w hich included prosecutors, defense attorneys, police chiefs and law professors could not reach a consensus on whether to get rid of the s even-year-old law that allows a person to meet force with force if they reasonably believe they are in danger of being killed or seriously harmed. The law removed a duty to retreat that previously was in the states self-defense law. We took an adult look at stand your ground, Smith said. We had adult discussions, not political, but adult discussions on stand your ground. Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman said he acted in self-defense when he killed Martin earlier this year in Sanford. Aspecial prosecutor, however, charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder following weeks of outcry and protests. Zimmerman has posted bail and is currently in hiding as he awaits trial on the charges. Smith, a critic of the existing law, put together his own task force to look at the law after complaining that Scott was waiting too long to respond to the Martin killing. Aseparate task force assembled by the governor is scheduled to hold its first meeting in Tallahassee on Tuesday. Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, said he would a sponsor in the bill in the Florida Legislature that includes the changes recommended by his group, including one that requires that a grand jury and not a prosecutor determine whether stand your ground can be used to avoid arrest. Smiths group also called for creating a system to track self-defense claims in Florida and to make it clear that the police can detain and question someone even if the person contends they were acting in self-defense. Smith said the law is now ambiguous on whether police are allowed to detain a suspect. The 21-page report by Smiths group includes recommendations that either had unanimous support, or a supermajority. Smith noted that only a simple majority supported a repeal of the stand your ground law and that he would not waste the time of the GOP-controlled Legislature or public by sponsoring a bill to repeal the law. One recommendation that received a supermajority but not unanimous agreement was that police should be allowed to charge someone if the person killed was unarmed or was in the process of running away. Martin was unarmed when Zimmerman shot him. Rep. Dennis Baxley, ROcala and a sponsor of the 2005 stand your ground law, said hes not surprised that Smiths group came up with recommendations to overhaul the law. Baxley said he wanted the governors task force to stay on its mission to look at all of the states self-defense laws. The mission is not to have a kangaroo court and says what wrong with stand your ground, said Baxley, who is a member of the governors task force. The importance of the mission is to review public safety and protection. Other task force members said they could not comment until they had a chance to read Smiths report. But Rep. Jason Brodeur, R-Sanford, said that he would be interested in anything to make Florida a safer place as long as it did not diminish the ability of Floridians to defend themselves or their families. Smith on Monday repeated his push to have the Florida Legislature deal with the states self-defense laws in a special session instead of waiting until next years legislative session. He said the law continues to be used and misused throughout courtrooms and remains fearful of copycat crimes similar to what happened to Travyon Martin. Smith also wanted to present his groups recommendations to the Scott-created task force at its first meeting. But Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who is leading the Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection, turned down his request. Her letter to Smith says it would be unfair to let him speak since no one else from the public is scheduled to address the group. She instead offered him to make a presentation in June. I guess Ill attend and maybe it put it on their windshield wipers on their cars campaign style afterwards, Smith said.

The total number of crimes tracked by the state agency dropped 0.1 percent, but the increase in population meant that the crime rate dropped 0.8 percent. Overall, violent crimes dropped by 3.7 percent to 98,183. Thats 3,724 fewer violent crimes than the year before and nearly 33,000 fewer than 2007. Nonviolent crimes increased by 2,686 to 671,297, or 0.4 percent. But the number of crimes compared to the states population was the lowest its been since the agency started tracking crime statistics 41 years ago. The agency tracks murders, forcible sex offenses, robberies, aggravated assaults, burglaries, larcenies and motor vehicle thefts. We began tracking those crimes in 1971 and Floridians are safer today than at any other time since that date, said agency Commissioner Gerald Bailey. Florida had 985 murders in 2011, a drop of two from the year before. Of those, 691 were committed with a firearm. Similarly, forcible sex offenses were nearly the same as the year before, with 9,886 reported in 2011, or six fewer than the year before. Aggravated assaults dropped by 5 percent. Ata time when there are arguments about whether Florida should repeal its stand your ground selfdefense law, Bailey said justifiable homicides committed by private citizens increased from 40 to 48. Bailey also noted that the number of domestic violence crimes have dropped 1.5 percent at a time when its increasing elsewhere in the country. And thats despite a 65 percent increase in simple stalking in domestic cases, from 392 in 2010 to 647 last year. One thing thats happened is that our citizens, our public, are more aware of the stalking laws. Theyre more sensitive to stalkers whether they be cyber stalkers or physical stalkers. So that definitely plays a role in it, Bailey said. FDLE: Floridas crime rate dipped slightly in 2011 Gary W.

Group asks for major changes to stand your ground law We had an adult discussion, not political, but adult discussions on stand your ground.CHRISSMITH state senator Classified ads get results! Call 314-9876 By BILLKACZOR Associated PressT ALLAHASSEE Florida can hold congressional elections under the Legislatures new redistricting map this year, a judge ruled Monday shortly after the Justice Department approved that plan as well as state House and Senate maps. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis wrote that the congressional plan can be used until he can received additional evidence and testimony he needs to make a ruling on its constitutionality. That decision, though, would not come in time to change the map for the Aug. 14 primary and Nov. 6 general election. The Tallahassee-based judge agreed with the Republican-led Legislature that there are many disputed facts that must be resolved before he can determine whether the map violates new anti-gerrymandering standards. I do not have the authority to replace it with another map while the case is pending, Lewis wrote. And despite plaintiffsprotests to the contrary, the new map appears on its face to be an improvement on the one it replaces. The existing map also is drawn for only 25 districts. Florida is gaining two more seats this year due to population growth over the last decade for a total of 27. The map is being challenged by the Florida Democratic Party and a coalition of three groups the League of Women Voters of Florida, National Council of La Raza and Florida Common Cause that backed the Fair Districts standards voters adopted in 2010. Voters passed a pair of state constitutional amendments, one each for congressional and legislative redistricting. We remain concerned about elements of the map, and we will continue to evaluate our legal options moving forward, Florida Democratic Party executive director Scott Arceneaux said in a statement. While Lewisruling could be appealed, time is running short. Qualifying for state and federal offices begins June 4, slightly more than a month away, and ends June 8. League of Women Voters of Florida First Vice President Pamela Goodman said the coalition also is considering its legal options. But the clock is ticking, Goodman said. Any appeal at this point in time would be a hindrance to Florida voters. She blamed the Legislature for foot dragging on the congressional plan. Although the Florida Constitution prevented a vote on the state legislative maps until 2012, the Legislature could have passed the congressional plan a year ago, Goodman said. The Justice Department or a court must give whats known as preclearance to election-law changes including the redistricting maps to make sure they comply with the federal Voting Rights Act. The requirement is because of past racial discrimination in five of Floridas 67 counties. Judge wont put congressional redistricting map on hold

C M Y K MARIE BENITA DELPHIN Reflections on Mommys Life and Accolades: Marie passed away April 21, 2012. She was born on Aug. 25, 1946 in the beautiful Ville of Croix Des Bouquet, Haiti to Mariland and Victoria Docile. Marie Benita felt the call of God over her life at the age of 8, when in Haiti her Sunday school professors stood her up on a stool to preach. Growing up, she always acknowledged that she would eventually become a preacher or preachers wife. Ever since then, she has never stopped preaching and teaching. She accepted the Lord as her Savior at the early age of 6. Marie Benita had devoted her life to the high calling of God. In 1970, she was married in the Bahamas to now Reverend Etienne Exilas Delphin. Mr. and Mrs. Delphin were blessed with five wonderful children: Exilas Jr. (Alex), Judith, Rebecca, Ruben, and Brenda. After leaving the Bahamas with her husband, the calling on her life continued in Miami at Bethany Baptist Church, where she played a key part of spreading the gospel and leading so many souls to Christ. She completed various seminary degrees at the New Orleans Baptist Seminary Extension which includes: Discipleship Ministries, Counseling, and Extensive Biblical Study. In 1987, Mrs. Delphin moved with her husband and five children to Lake Placid, where they began doing doorto-door ministry. She exemplified the life of a servant as she thoughtfully cared for all of those she met. Food was always prepared for those who attended the church services. She made sure that everyone she knew had the proper clothing to wear, so that no one had to suffer from the elements. When she found out that someone was sick, she was always more than ready to visit and pray with them; making sure that they had the proper medical attention that was needed. Mr. and Mrs. Delphin often took into their home many who needed shelter and a Godly place to live. She worked diligently and respectfully with her husband at the First Haitian Baptist Church of Avon Park for 22 years. Her years of service as: Sunday School Superintendent, Deaconess, Womens Ministry Director, Choir Director, Young adults/youths/kids overseer, Prayer warrior among many other positions, have been greatly appreciated and honored, but yet, will be deeply missed. On July 11, 2012 Mr. and Mrs. Delphin renewed their 40th wedding vows. Mrs. Delphin was a remarkable wife, mother, sister, best friend, and overall Christian. Mrs. Delphin will always be known for having the heart of Christ (the heart of a servant). She leaves behind three brothers: Jeremie, Caleb, Jean and one sister Sarah. She also leaves behind countless nieces and nephews, cousins, friends and her immediately family. She will be greatly missed on this earth, but we will all see her again in Glory. Her last message to her Church three weeks ago, First Haitian Baptist of Avon Park, was When I get to Heaven I will receive three crowns: the crown of Life (eternal), the crown of Glory, and the crown of Justice. Do all you can to live for Christ so that you too may receive these same crowns. Amen. Family will receive friends on Friday, May 4, 2012 from 6-8 p.m. at The First Baptist Hatiian Church.

C M Y K Page 2BNews-SunWednesday, May 2, 2012www.newssun.com In our pursuit for saving money,we find ourselves scouring the worldand the Web for ways to cut corners and expenses. And nowhere is thatmore apparent than in our weekly quest to feed the family. We kill ourselves searching high and low for coupons. We seek out thebargains,willingly investing our gas and time to get the lowestprices, even if it means a big drive. Were saving a lot of money,wesay to ourselves. But what about the concept of simplifying? It seems to me that wehumans have this tendency to overcomplicate things and make it harderthan it has to be. Its good to save money especially when it comes toyour grocery budget, dont get me wrong. But at some point,thereneeds to be a line drawn in the sand. It needs to make sense,not justcents! I was thinking about this idea of simplifying while I enjoyed mywonderful breakfast this morning. It w asnt fancy,but it was simple. T wo lovely eggs,basted to my liking on top of a bed of lightlysauted garlicky spinach. Very satisfying, very inexpensive and nohuge Madison Avenue ad campaign behind any of that food,no coupons,no nothing and yet it cost me less than a dollar to have breakfast. The take-away lesson here is that real food doesnt usually have a lotof hoopla and fanfare telling you its there. Packages of dried beansand bunches of fresh broccoli arent advertised on TV. You wont seeany cartoon characters on anything in the produce department of yourgrocery store,nor will you see celebrity endorsements for grass-fedbeef or wild fish. Think about that. And while youre thinking,heres a recipe using simple,easy to find,healthy ingredients.

He was wearing shorts,and you could see his large tattoo of a naked woman on his thigh. The drawing was very explicit,and there was no way to avoid seeing it because passengers had to cross over his leg to reach the bathroom. How do you explain this kind of artto children? Would the airline have the right to ask him to cover the tattoo if it was objectionable? Offended Traveler from New York Dear Offended: Because body art could be classified as freedom of expression,Im not sure they do. However,someones leg protruding into the aisle might be considered a safety issue because it could cause a trip and fall. It would also impede food and beverage carts traveling up and down the aisle. Because you were offended,I hope you averted your gaze if you needed to make more than one trip to the lavatory,and if there were children in tow,that you didnt call their attention to the picture. Dear Abby: I had an urgent piece of mail to get to the post office. My sister called the postmistress,who agreed to stay open for her to deliver it. In the meantime,I found two other pieces of mail that required checks,quickly wrote them out and gave the three envelopes to my sister,who rushed them to the post office. Upon her return, she showed me her vehicle,which had a deep gash running along one side because she had backed down the driveway too quickly,not paying attention,and had scraped the car against the stone post. She thinks I should pay half the cost of repair because I was involved. I think it was her carelessness,and therefore,I should not have to pay. Im not angry,just confused by her reasoning because the same thing happened to me when I ran an errand for her,but I paid on my own for my carelessness. What do you think? Thinks Differently in Tennessee Dear Thinks Differently: I think you should remind your sister that when the same thing happened to you while running an errand for her,you assumed the responsibility for paying for it. For her to say that you were involvedis stretching the truth. Shes trying to guilt you into paying. Stand your ground. Dear Abby: Im a 20-year-old female junior in college. I am intelligent,attractive and friendly,and I want to remain a virgin until Im married. This is not because of religious reasons. I have had a few relationships I thought were serious,but I ended up getting dumped for a loosergirl each time,which really hurts. My family and friends dont understand that waiting until marriage is part of who I am. Ironically,I was raised to think this was proper,but once I reached a certain age,everyone seemed to change their minds. Im not looking to get married for at least five years,which means a long wait for anyone who wants to date me. Am I going to be alone forever just because I wont jump into bed with a guy before were married? Principled in Ann Arbor,Mich. Dear Principled: Not quite forever. I admire you for adhering to your values and so will the man who marries you.

The E! Entertainment network has expansion plans that include a new music series from American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe,a reality series with the oldest member of the Jonas Brothers and a talk show starring Whitney Cummings. E! is also sticking with what works, announcing last week a new three-year deal to keep the Kardashian reality TV empire in-house for three more years. Youll see us keep our fun and keep our attitude,said E! President Suzanne Kolb. I think youll see us be a little broader. We feel like E! is to pop culture what ESPN is to sports and I think we need to fully realize that. E! is part of the NBC Universal group of cable networks,which have been enormously profitable for parent Comcast Corp. The network has a strong brand name and good distribution,so it has potential to grow its revenue,said Derek Baine,an analyst for SNL Kagan,a company that researches the economics of TV networks. While E! is growing,its not at the level of fellow NBC Universal networks like USA and Bravo. USA is averaging 2.33 million viewers so far this television season,Bravo has 992,000 and E! stands at 649,000, according to the Nielsen company. The most high-profile attempt to broaden E!s offerings comes on July 9 with the premiere of Lythgoes Opening Act.Each week producers will pick an unknown musical act that has posted work online,surprising the artist with the chance to open a concert for acts like Rod Stewart,Brad Paisley and Nicki Minaj. The series, which features Mary J. Blige,follows the acts as they prepare and execute the potential career-changing gigs. In August,E! premieres Married to Jonas,featuring Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa,a hairstylist in training who met the musician while they were both vacationing in the Bahamas. They married in 2009. E! Entertainment network to rework lineup, keep Kardashians

C M Y K Special to the News-Sun LAKE PLACID Speaker Jeff Roth of The Childrens Advocacy Center of Highlands County spoke to the Club about being a Champion for Children in our everyday lives. He asked members to pay attention to children we cross paths with in our daily lives. Roth has been the in his position since 2000. W ally Randall,a previous speaker from the Boys and Girls Club,is a Champion for Children award winner. Rothsaid that he is a member of the Childrens Services C ouncil of the County Commission. They meet each month to plan what they can do to lift our children up who are left behind. Also speaking was Dr. Mary Ann Lewis,a candidate running for the Highlands County School Board. She read a poem about Making a Difference. Lewis is a retired administrator of education. Dr. Anne Lindsay was the third speaker. Dr. Lindsay is the Sebring High School principal and is also on the Childrens Services Council. She asked the club to be a Cheerleader for Childrenand challenged the Club to reach out to children. She had a firsthand experience as her grandson died of abuse. Lindsay is involved with C.H.E.E.R.,a program that builds Character,.ealh, Education,Emotion and R esponsibility. Some campaigns that C.H.E.E.R. sponsors are Blue Ribbon campaign,Pinwheels of Prevention and Mission not Impossible,all coinciding with the C.H.E.E.R. goals. These goals are to have a buse prevention/intervention, basic health and wellness ( food,water,shelter,clothing and safety) and mental health and substance abuse help. A check for $100 was given to the Childrens Advocacy C enter of Highlands County from the Club. The previous guest speaker was Kim Ervin,District R eading Specialist with the Highlands County School Board. Ervin has lived in Highlands County since 2004 and is a graduate of the University of Florida. She has two children and her husband Charles works in the Tower here in Lake Placid. She is on the Council of Chief State School Officers. She also is a member of the National Governors Association (Center for Best Practices) since 2010. Ervin told the Club that a study done in 2005 showed that only 51 percent of students are ready for college level reading. She says that complexity is the deciding factor in the reading level. Ervin says the FCAT will end in2013-2014 and a new PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) will begin. This will be under the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSS). According to Ervin,45 of the states have adopted the CCSS Initiative. Florida formally adopted the CCSS in July of 2010 and implementation began this year. The program was developed to prepare students with knowledge and skills for succeeding in college and work,ensure consistent expectations, regardless of a students zip code and provides educators, parents and students with ca lear,focused guidepost. The program hopes to fix the differences in state standards,give students mobility,gain ground in global competition and give students better skills for todays jobs. Kims husband Charlie shared a little about the Tower. He said his company wants to tell everyone that the Tower is not leaning,or going to be torn down. He also said that opening the Tower for sitghtseeing has hit a snag,as the former o wners had let a cell phone company put equipment on top of the Tower.To do so they ran large wires up the stairwell to the equipment on top. The county fire marshall will not let them open the elevator for use because of this. The cell company claims the wires are protected with a shield that passes the fire code. County officials are not buying that and to fix this it Charles Ervin said it would cost $100,000 to satisfy the fire marshall. www.newssun.comNews-SunW ednesday, May 2, 2012Page 3B LAMPE & KEIFFER; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 5/2/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 9 9 3 3 9 9 3 3 SOUTHWOOD BUILDERS C/O ANR; 3.639"; 4"; Black; IO120511S2 Main A RHP; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 9 9 3 3 9 9 4 4 Courtesy photo Six members of the Garden Club of Sebring Inc. attended the Spring District IX Garden Club meeting recently held in Port Charlotte. One of the highlights of the afternoon was a presentation made to the treasurer of the Sebring Garden Club. The Pillar of Pride award was bestowed on Ray Adelmann by the FFGC. This award recognizes members of purpose,pride and productivity in garden club work. More that just a treasurer, Adelmann is a business manager, keeping faultless records while watching budgeted funds. He guidedthe club through the maze of incorporation and counsels us, all while serving on several committees. He also maintains a nursery at his home and provides the club with much of the plants and flowers for plant sales, club events and the beautification project at the civic center. In addition, Adelmann provides most of the printing needs of the club, including the yearbook and membership brochures. These points may seem ordinary, but it is the pleasant,helpful manner in which Ray does his job that makes him the Garden Club of Sebrings Pillar of Pride.

Clear leaves and branches out from under shrubs,other plants,and the house foundation. Make sure the lawn is free from debris and that grass clippings are not left on the driveway or sidewalk. Borrow or rent a power washer to clean off the driveway,steps,sidewalk and porch.Trim,prune and divide. Overgrown plants can block light from getting inside the house, and they make the house and yard look unkempt. Trim shrubs,making sure to remove dead branches. Get rid of dead or diseased plants in the landscape. If you have perennial plants that have gotten too big, divide them and plant them in other places around the landscape.Add new mulch. Mulch not only helps your plants,but it gives garden beds a neat and tidy finish. Wood mulch comes in different colors,but to showcase your plants the most, consider a dark brown mulch it resembles fresh,healthy soil,so your eyes are drawn toward the plant and not the mulch itself. FAMILY FEATURES When its time to sell your home,you want to do everything you can to make it enticing to potential buyers. One of the most important things you can do is boost your homes curb appeal. In fact,the National Association of Realtors says that curb appeal sells 49 percent of all homes. To help you build curb appeal from the ground up,TruGreen and Jason Cameron, licensed contractor and TV host,have teamed up to give you some simple,doable tips to improve your lawn and landscape.WaterRightImproper watering can be a big drain on curb appeal. Check the working condition of sprinkler heads and water lines to make sure theyre working properly. To ensure your manual or automated watering system covers the landscape efficiently, set a one-inch deep empty food can in the middle of your lawn so you can measure the depth of water collected each watering cycle. In addition:Dont over water. Watering too much can result in shallow plant roots,weed growth,storm water runoff,and the possibility of disease and fungus development. Give your lawn a slow,steady watering about once a week. Adjust your watering schedule depending on rainfall,as well as your grass and soil type. Trees and shrubs need longer, less frequent watering than plants with shallower roots. The best time to water is early morning,between 4 and 7 a.m. This helps reduce evaporation,since the sun is low, winds are usually calmer and temperatures cooler. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that you can lose as much as 30 percent of water to evaporation by watering midday.Always be mindful of local water restrictions.Take advantage of rain. Let nature water your landscape as much as possible. Rain barrels are a great way to harvest rain for watering your plants later on and it saves you money on your water bill,too.ComplementWithColorCreate an instant pop of color to help your homes curb appeal bloom this spring. Consider your homes exterior when selecting flowering plant combinations for plant beds,window boxes or front porch planters. With a white house,any color combination will work well. With a yellow house,red or pink blooms tend to complement best. Here are some other colorful tips to keep in mind:For a calming effect,use cooler colors like blue,green and purple. They blend into the landscape for a peaceful look.Bold colors add excitement to the landscape. Warm yellows,oranges and reds make the garden lively. Yellow reflects more light than other colors,so yellow flowers will get noticed first.To brighten up a dark or shady corner,use pale colors, like pastel pinks and yellows.Not all color needs to come from flowers. Foliage can be a great landscape enhancer,so look for colorful grasses and plants like silvery lambs ear,variegated hostas,and Japanese painted ferns. Jason Cameron,licensed contractor and TV host,says that color plays an important role in boosting your homes curb appeal.Grass vs.WeedsWeeds are plants growing where you do not want them to grow. They can be unsightly in both your lawn and landscape beds. Grassy weeds can be subdivided into annual and perennial grasses. Annual grassy weeds,such as crabgrass and annual bluegrass,are generally easier to control than perennial grassy weeds like dallisgrass and bentgrass. Left uncontrolled from seed,crabgrass alone can choke out desired turfgrasses and develop ugly seed heads in the summer and fall that lay the groundwork for next seasons crop. No matter what your weed problems are,a lawn care approach that works inoneregionofthecountrydoesntnecessarilyworkthesameinanotherarea. According to Ben Hamza,Ph.D.,TruGreen expert and director of technical operations,TruGreen will design a custom plan to provide your yard exactly what it needs to give your lawn the right start.

FRIENDS& NEIGHBORS T ropical Harbor Estates By Arlene Clouston Special to the News-SunAVON PARK For the s econd year in a row,South Florida Community College i s among 120 out of more than 1,200 community colleges across the United States to have been deemed eligible for the Aspen Prize f or Community College Excellence. Were thrilled to find our college among those eligible for the Aspen Prize again t his year and to be recognized for the academic excellence of our students, said Dr. Norm Stephens, SFCC president. Student success is our highest priority. We have outstanding faculty. Their dedication and their caring approach makes our college deserving of this recognition. The Aspen Prize recognizes community colleges that deliver exceptional student results,stimulate replication of successful campus practices and leadership, and contribute to the development of high-quality measures and benchmarks for assessing community college student outcomes. To highlight the critical importance of improving student success across the country,the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program is challenging these 120 colleges to vie for funds from the $1 million 2013 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. V alencia College in Orlando was awarded the inaugural Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence in December 2011. Four additional colleges shared the spotlight as finalists-with-distinction, including Miami Dade College,Lake Area Technical Institute (South Dakota),Walla Walla Community College (Washington),and West Kentucky Community and Technical College. As with last year's Aspen Prize,half of the 28 colleges in the Florida College System are eligible to compete this year,the most allowed in any state. In all, colleges in 31 states are eligible for the prize. A full list of the 120 community colleges is available at www.AspenPrize.org. The community colleges named to compete for this years Aspen Prize competition were selected using publicly available data on student outcomes. They were identified by using a formula that assesses performance and improvement in four areas:graduation rates,degrees awarded,student retention rates,and equity in student outcomes. As part of the Aspen Prize selection,the colleges have been asked to submit detailed data on degree/certificate completion,labor market outcomes and student learning outcomes. Ten finalists will be named in September,and the Aspen Institute will conduct site visits to each of the finalists in the fall. An Aspen Prize jury,co-chaired by former Michigan Governor John Engler and former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Secretary of Education Richard Riley, will select a grand prize winner and four runners up in March of 2013. The grand prize winner receives $600,000,and $400,000 will be divided among the four finalists with distinction. SFCC in running for Aspen Prize once again Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Kathleen Cappo,South Florida Community College nursing professor,was recently selected as the recipient of the 2012 Endowed Teaching Chair in Nursing by South Florida Community Colleges faculty. She received her award during the SFCC Foundation Inc.s Annual Spring Gala,April 28. Cappo will receive a $5000 endowment established and funded by the Highlands County Health Facilities Authority to celebrate exceptional nursing educators. The endowment is awarded over a period of two years,half of which is to be used to support a project related to their profession and the other half as an honorarium,said Don Appelquist,executive director of the South Florida Community College Foundation Inc. Cappos proposed project during her tenure is to develop a competency tracking tool using either the colleges current student management portal,Desire 2 Learn,or developing new software in-house that will enhance student success when progressing to the next level of their nursing education. As programs continue to grow to meet the demands of the community, this tracking device will help document individual student competency at every level from nursing assisting,practical nursing,nursing transition,registered nursing, and future programs. The tool would track exactly how many times a skill was performed during clinicals and simulation days, and what skills students needed to remediate. The tool would build from simple to complex components in every program and every facility,and faculty would be provided with tablets to track the studentsperformance in SFCCs facilities and all clinical sites. Students would be able to see their results and improvement thus increasing their confidence while the documentation will help them enhance their employment portfolios,Cappo said. Producing a seamless tracking of competencies will help both faculty and students as we continue to strive for excellence in South Florida Community Colleges Nursing Department. The appointment is for two years and is highly competitive within the department. Selection of the honoree is jointly made by a selection committee and the college faculty as a whole. The selection must then be certified by SFCC President Dr. Norm Stephens. The Endowed Teaching Chair program helps us attract evermore qualified faculty members to our institution,Appelquist said. It also gives us a way to show our appreciation to the outstanding faculty members we already have and to celebrate excellence in the classroom.

Connect with and support those who surround you.This includes:EatinglocallysourcedfoodBuying food that is grown and produced nearby cuts down on the number of miles between the food and your plate. It also means supporting local farmers and agricultural businesses. There are several ways to find locally sourced food:Shopping at farmers markets. You can find fresh local produce,flowers, honey,breads and more.Eating at restaurants that source ingredients from local farms.Joining a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). These are partnerships between community members and local growers. Through a CSA, you can buy what are essentially sharesin the harvest each week. Pick up your goods from the farm or another pickup location,such as a grocery store,and enjoy fresh,seasonal ingredients.HostingacommunitypotluckAsk neighbors to cook their favorite dishes with ingredients theyve picked up from the farmers market. Good food creates good memories. TheNaturalWayNatural foods and products are better for you and Mother Earth. Take time to think about what youre putting into your body and into the ground,recommends Copeland. For instance:EatgreenerGo green literally by growing your own herbs and vegetables.

Plant a windowsill herb garden so you can snip and serve up a bit of green in every meal you create.ChoosewiselyProducts made with sustainable practices give Mother Nature a bit of a break. Select brands and products that are continually improving their operations to help minimize their impact on the environment.

For fans of the original novels by Ian F leming,theres more:a journey into the troubled psyche of the iconic spy. After all,the director of the 23rd film in the franchise,which spans half a century,is Sam Mendes,whose c inematic studies of personalities in emotional turmoil and even meltdown include American Beautyand Revolutionary Road. You always go back to the Fleming because the character F leming created over a number of novels was incredibly complex, M endes said Sunday at a news conference in Istanbul,where the crew of Skyfallhas filmed. Some people sometimes forget in the cliche of Bond,which is the international playboy,and someone whos always untroubled,and almost never breaks a sweat,that actually what (Fleming) created was a very conflicted character,said Mendes,who w as joined by cast members,including Bond actor Daniel Craig. Fleming created a secret agent who was sometimes frustrated and ambivalent about his job. Many Bond movies sidestepped the inner demons,showcasing instead a debonair 007 whose exploits were enhanced with gaudy gadgets and special effects. In Flemings last novels,Mendes said,Bond suffered from a combination of lassitude,boredom,depression,difficulty with what hes chosen to do for a living,which is to kill. That makes him a much more interesting character,and some of those things are explored in this movie, because Daniel as an actor is capable of exploring them. It is Craigs third portrayal of the spy,and he introduced a darker side to Bond in his earlier roles in 2008s Quantum of Solacein 2008 and Casino Royalein 2006. Craig reread Bond novels as part of his preparation for Skyfall,and a delay in film production,caused when studio MGM filed for bankruptcy in 2010,allowed him more time to discuss the character with Mendes. He said he had spoken to intelligence agents about their work,and has some inkling of the hardships they face. Ive got the better job,said Craig,whose last movie was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,the thriller adapted from the novel by Stieg Larsson. Skyfallis due for release on Oct. 26 in Britain and in other locations shortly after that. Judi Dench returns as spy chief M and the film introduces English actress Naomie Harris as a field agent named Eve and Berenice Marlohe of France as a character named Severine. Producers are enigmatic about the plot,though they have said the relationship between Bond and M is tested and MI6,the spy agency,comes under attack. Skyfallincludes scenes in London,Scotland,Turkey and China. In Istanbul,the crew filmed scenes with motorcycles at the Grand Bazaar,a covered market that dates to the early Ottoman period. The 1963 Bond movie,From Russia With Love,included scenes in Istanbul. It starred Sean Connery. New007 film to depict spys inner demons ENTERTAINMENT MCT Daniel Craig is the current star of the James Bond movie franchise.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comHeading to Tarpon Springs Thursday for the Regional Quarterfinals of the Class 6A State Baseball Playoffs, Sebring will be taking on a formidable Sponger squad. The hosts compiled a 23-4 overall record under head coach Richard Hart, and went 7-1 in District 10-6Aplay, claiming the tournament championship with a 7-1 win over Land OLakes last Thursday. Of those four season losses, two were 1-0 losses to both Seminole-Osceola and Land OLakes, as well as a 32 loss to Countryside and a 41 decision to Osceola. Take those numbers away from their season totals, and Tarpon Springs outscored their opponents by a combined 177-42 behind a number of big bats. The team batting average was .315, with senior Anthony Bariso leading the way with a .421 average and team-high three home runs. Cole Miklavcic hit .396, Brendan Overton sported a .391 average, Hunter Bonner batted .382, Tommy Gr ill checked in at .361 and Caleb Koulianos at .322. Kulianos lead the team with 23 RBI, though Grill was right behind with 21 and Bariso and Overton tied with 17 each. The Spongers also ha ve some weapons when they get on the bases, with Miklavcic going 18-for-19 in the stolen base department, Bonner 10for-13 and Grill 10-for-16. And if the Blue Streak pitching staff is able to hold this fearsome line-up in check, the Sebring bats will have to do some damage against one of a trio of Tarpon Springs top hurlers. Bariso lead the team with a 0.73 ERA, with Michael Dunnigan right behind at 0.75 and Koulianos at 1.12. Dunnigan was the staff leader with eight wins in 65 innings pitched, giving up just 36 hits and seven earned Streaks look to squeeze Spongers By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIts a long-held tradition renewed Avon Park reaching the state playoffs and running into Tampa Catholic. And for most of the past 17 years, that hasnt been a good thing. Starting back in 1995, the Crusaders ended the Devils football run, in it was baseball and basketball. The trend continued in with basketball and softball and in both and 2001 with one-run wins in baseball. The streak in the series was finally broken, as Avon Park took a 53-48 in the basketball regional quarterfinals during the 2010 Final Four r un, but Tampa Catholic returned the favor the following year with a 74-72 win on itsown run to the Final Four. The two schools are back at it Thursday night at Head F ield with the District 9-4A r unner up Crusaders (15-8-1) coming for another duel with the Devils (18-7). And as has often been the case, the numbers show a pretty even match-up. Tampa comes in with a team average on the season of .304 to APs .293, having scored 150 runs to the Devils144. And while the Crusaders out-homered Avon Park 14-5, the Devilsmore than doubled them up in stolen bases, swiping 62 to Tampa Catholics 30. The give-and-take of numbers extends to the pitching staffs as well, where the Crusaders Cody Hernandez went 5-1 and Derek Martin went 4-0. For Avon Park, Lane Crosson went 6-0 and Brad Torres 6-2. Tampas team ERAwas a tad lower, 2.45 to the Devils 2.63, but Avon Park held the strike out edge, 182-120. The walks given up and earned run to actual run differentials were virtually identical, meaning both staffs had about the same control and the defenses are on equal ground. The two main, power bats the Devil staff will have to be wary of are Luke Helms and A rivalry renewed SPORTS D SECTION News-Sun Sunday, May 2, 2012 NASCAR This Week3D Courtesy photo Lady Dragon Brittany Collison was honored as the Sports Talk 2011-12 Highlands County Female Athlete of the Year on Ed Lynchs broadcast Saturday, April 28.

Below: The Crusaders may have the power numbers, but the Red Devils speed on the bases is a big weapon, having swiped more than twice as many bases as Tampa Catholic.

News-Sun file photo by SCOTTDRESSEL Aaron Hart looks to keep things close and cut down on the free passes against a strong Spongers line-up. And away we go... See DEVILS, Page 4D See SEBRING, Page 5D By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Amare Stoudemire draped a towel over his left hand as he walked into the privacy of the New York Knickstraining room an hour after the game, needing a sanctuary from prying eyes. The specifics of what Stoudemire did immediately after Game 2 were unclear. Only this was certain: His hand was cut so severely that doctors and paramedics were summoned, drops of blood stained the carpet, a piece of glass in the door to a fire-extinguisher case needed to be replaced, and a bad night for the Knicks on the court got much worse when Stoudemire walked off it. Stoudemires availability and New Yorks hopes for the rest of this Eastern Conference first-round series against the Miami Heat look bleak at best, first because the Knicks were beaten 104-94 on Monday night to fall into a 2-0 hole in the best-ofseven matchup, then because of whatever emotions boiled over near the locker room afterward. I am so mad at myself right now, I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start, Stoudemire wrote on Twitter about two hours after the game. Game 3 is Thursday. Before the Knicks left the arena for the flight to New York, a team official said the extent of the injury is unknown. But in the locker room, Knicks center Tyson Chandler said he did not expect Stoudemire to be able to play when the series returns to Madison Square Garden. Im not going to comment until I see or hear whats going on with it, Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. Moments later, Woodson said he had seen the cut, then stopped short of saying anything else about what took place. Im not going to go there, Woodson said. So on their trip to Miami, the Knicks lost two games and two starters. Stoudemire cuts hand, Miami beats Knicks See HEAT, Page 4D Collison earns kudos

Russo also batted .410 to lead the team, with Joseph Burruezo hitting .394 and Billy Endris at .386. Those numbers were more than matched by the monster mashing of Avon Parks T yrone Perry, who hit an eyepopping .523, with a .610 onbase percentage, with 5 home runs, 10 doubles, two triples, 29 runs scored and 28 RBI. The left-handed hitting lead-off batter also walked 16 times, struck out just seven times, and had a slugging average of .860 and an OPS of 1.470. And while Perry obviously stood out, the rest of the Devil line-up put up some impressive numbers, with Alfred Brown hitting at a .338 clip and stealing 17 bases. Crosson hit .302 with 17 runs and 17 RBI with three triples and seven stolen bases. Anthony Caruthers hit .302 and drove in 13, a run-producing total matched by Mason Jahna. Not to be lost in the matchup is that Tampa Catholic holds the record for state baseball titles with nine, while Avon Park is second with eight. We went and watched them play Berkeley Prep (in the district championsh ip game) and didnt really see too much, it was really a pitchers duel, Avon Park head coach Whit Cornell said. We know theyve got some good hitters, some real good pitching and are strong behind the plate. But weve been in every game weve played this year, have played a lot of close games and beaten bigger schools, he continued. These guys have been in plenty of pressure situations and know how to handle it. As long as we pitch like we have been, continue to play defense the way were capable of, it doesnt matter who we play, the guys will give themselves a chance. Continued from 1D News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE The Red Devil defense needs to stay consistent in order to keep moving through the state playoffs. Devils face an old nemesis in Crusaders Guard Iman Shumpert was lost for 6 to 8 months after tearing a knee ligament in Game 1, a freak play after a misstep. Stoudemire now appears gone as well, because of a mistake. You never want to hear anyone gets hurt, said Miami guard Dwyane Wade, who led the Heat with 25 p oints. Hopefully he gets b etter. We want all their guns on the court. Chris Bosh added 21 points and LeBron James finished with 19 points, nine assists and seven rebounds for the Heat, but their night was completely overshado wed by whatever went on with Stoudemire in the hallway thats just a few steps from the edge of the court. I really dont know whats the situation with that, said Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, who said he was on the court when whatever happened with Stoudemire occurred. Everything the Heat did seemed like old news quickl y after the game, when all anyone really wanted to talk about was what was going on in the Knicks locker r oom. Miami-Dade paramedics who staff every game were summoned while r eporters were kept outside much longer than the typical 1 0-minute cooling-off period. Were all frustrated, Chandler said. Stoudemire declined to say anything when he walked out of the shower area in the locker room, one towel around his waist, another shielding his left hand. Almost forgotten: Miami had just sent New York to its NBA-record-tying 12th straight postseason loss. This is a series, Chandler said. Weve got to go home win the next two and turn it into a best-ofthree after that. Anthony scored 30 points on 12-for-26 shooting for New York, which got 18 points from Stoudemire and 13 apiece from Chandler and J.R. Smith. The only other team to lose 12 straight playoff games is the Memphis Grizzlies, who dropped their first dozen postseason contests from 2004 through 2006. New Yorks last postseason win came April 29, 2001. Mario Chalmers scored 13 points and Mike Miller and Shane Battier each shot 3 for 5 from 3-point range on their way to 11-point games for the defending East champion Heat, who shot 52 percent. Every game we try to find our shooters, get them comfortable in the offense and once they catch them, they can let it fly, James said. It was concerted effort tonight to get them the ball and move the ball from one side to the other. Baron Davis, who sat most of the first half and has been battling back issues, finished with 12 points for the Knicks. The Heat came into the game saying they expected Anthony to be much more aggressive. They were right. Anthony opened with an 11-shot quarter the last time someone took more in the first 12 minutes of a playoff game was May 15, 2006, when Richard Hamilton got 12 shots off for Detroit against Cleveland. Anthony missed all seven of the jumpers he took in Game 1 when guarded by James, then got his first one to fall on the games first possession Monday. By halftime, Anthony was up to 21 points on 9-for-18 shooting, the Knicks needing all that and more. Wade, James and Bosh combined for 41 points in the first two quarters, helping Miami take a 53-47 lead. Unlike Game 1, it wasnt over by halftime. And play was heated, just not overheated. Well, until postgame, anyway. For nearly three quarters, whenever Miami was on the cusp of pulling away, New York had answers. Consecutive baskets by James midway through the third quarter, the second of those good enough for him to merit it worthy of a chestbump and long look at the Knicks bench, put Miami up 67-56 then its biggest lead. Four minutes later, the Knicks were within four, a dunk by Chandler making it 72-68 with 1:37 left in the period. Miamis margin was back to nine after a flurry ended the third. James drove right and got just about every Knick to shift with him, leaving Battier all alone for a 3pointer, and Jamesthreepoint play as the shot clock was running down had him laughing and the Heat up 78-69 going into the fourth. The Knicks never got any closer, and the Heat wound up holding serve at home. We did what were supposed to do, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Its not anything more than that. Were already trying to leave this game behind. By then, word was just seeping out of what happened in the Knicks locker room. Amare is a huge piece of this team, Chandler said. And, you know, without him, its going to make it more difficult. Notes: Knicks G Mike Bibby came out of one of his shoes during play early in the second quarter, then was miffed after Wade picked up the sneaker and tossed it out of his reach as New York took the ball into the offensive end. I dont think many people have done that before, Wade said. ... Heat F Udonis Haslem bought tickets for relatives of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen who was killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Fla. on Feb. 26. ... Shumpert watched from the locker room. ... Its the first time the Heat have held a 2-0 series lead over the Knicks. All four previous matchups were split after the opening two games. Continued from 1D Heat hold off Knicks, Stoudamire loses cool MCTphoto Amare Stoudamire was none too pleased after Mondays loss to the Miami Heat and could be lost for the series after severely cutting his hand. By CLIFFBRUNT Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS David West had 18 points and 11 rebounds to help the Indiana Pacers beat the Orlando Magic 93-78 on Monday night and even the Eastern Conference first-round series at one game apiece. Danny Granger and George Hill each added 18 points and Paul George had 17 points and eight rebounds for Indiana. Glen Davis led the Magic with 18 points and 10 rebounds, but he shot 5 for 16 from the field. J.J. Redick scored 13 points and Jameer Nelson added 12 for Orlando. The Pacers were heavy favorites in the series because Dwight Howard, Orlandos All-Star center, is out with a back injury. Indiana lost Game 1 81-77 on Saturday, and the frustrated Pacers fought hard to avoid taking a two-game deficit to Orlando on Wednesday. No one liked the way we were playing, Indiana forward Tyler Hansbrough said. I didnt think we were playing with energy or aggressive enough. Indiana outrebounded Orlando 26-13 in the second half and held the Magic to 36 percent shooting overall. Indiana has held the Magic below 40 percent shooting in both games. The Pacers won despite making just 2 of 20 3-point attempts and Granger shooting just 7 for 21 from the field. In the third quarter, they just kicked our butts, Davis said. They got every loose ball. Pacers defeat Magic 93-78, even series 1-apiece

C M Y K By BERNIE WILSON Associated PressSAN DIEGO Since the first half of the 20th century, sailors seeking wind, waves and heady competition in California could race from Newport Beach to Ensenada, Mexico or sail out past the limits of the San Francisco Bay in the Full Crew Farallones Race. Beer and exhilaration awaited them at the end, and they gave little thought to death and danger. At least until this spring. Two weeks after five sailors were killed in the waters off Northern California when their 38-foot yacht was hit by powerful waves and ran aground on a rocky island, the sailing community was stunned again. Three sailors were killed and one went missing, their yacht found in pieces near the Mexican border, perhaps in a collision with a large ship in the middle of the night. The San Diego County medical examiner said Monday that Kevin Eric Rudolph, 53, of Manhattan Beach, died of blunt force injuries to his head and neck; William Reed Johnson Jr., 57, of Torrance, Calif., died of multiple blunt force injuries; and Joseph Lester Stewart, 64, of Bradenton, Fla., drowned. The boats skipper was missing. The coroners report listed all three deaths as accidents but did not say what could have caused the wreck. The Coast Guard was seeking records of any large ships in the area when the 37-foot Aegean was believed to have been destroyed early Saturday, said Lt. Bill Burwell, an agency spokesman. Investigators are also examining the yachts debris and GPS coordinates and trying to find other race participants who were in the area. Burwell, a Coast Guard pilot who helped locate the three bodies, said he isnt ruling out that the yacht collided with rocks on Mexicos Coronado Islands. Race organizers say they see no other explanation other than a collision with a larger ship. I think equal opportunity should be given to the idea that there wasnt another vessel involved. The evidence doesnt point to that yet, but the evidence doesnt point anywhere, he said. Eric Lamb, who stumbled on the wreckage Saturday morning while on safety patrol, said debris strewn over 2 square miles looked as if the boat had gone through a blender too small to suggest a collision with rocks. By ocean racing standards, the number of casualties in the two races is startling. Previous major ocean racing disasters have been caused by freak storms, including the one that killed 15 sailors in the Irish Sea in the 1979 Fastnet Race and one that killed six in the 1998 Sydney to Hobart Race. Gary Jobson, president of the U.S. Sailing Association, said he was horrified by the latest accident. We need to take a step back and take a deep breath with what were doing. Something is going wrong here, he said. Jobson said hes scheduled to speak by phone with a Coast Guard official in San Francisco on Tuesday about a possible independent review panel, then hopes to do the same in San Diego. Dennis Conner, a four-time winner of the Americas Cup who has also won the Newport to Ensenada Race, called the two accidents a tragic coincidence. Conner didnt participate in this years Newport to Ensenada Race. That race has been going on, sometimes with 500 boats, although there were more like 200 this year, and theres never been a problem in 65 years. Hopefully it doesnt disrupt the continuity of the race, Conner said. Other sailors who have participated in the races were stunned at what happened to the Aegean. While reluctant to assess blame, they found it hard to believe the sailors werent aware of the danger they were in. Troy Sears, who owns the Next Level Sailing charter company in San Diego, wondered if fatigue was a factor. The wind was light, swells were modest and a small moon lit the sky. The world is a much different place on the ocean at night, he said. Sears said he has a sophisticated tracking system and requires two people on watch while sailing at night. When I see a ship, I always assume that I have to get out of its way. I never let a ship get within miles of me, he said. Rudolphs wife, Leslie, said he leaves two grown children and the couple would have celebrated their 27th anniversary May 26. Leslie Rudolph said her husband was competing in the race for the third time with the Aegeans skipper, Theo Mavromatis of Redond o Beach. Mavromatis was a sailor his entire life and did not appear to have ever faced scrutiny about safety, said Conrad Thieme of Marina Sailing, which rented the yacht on his behalf. He previously won the race in his category. Based on his sailing resume, this whole occurrence is really surprising, Thieme said. The deaths are the first fatalities in the races 65 years. They came two weeks after five sailors died in the waters off Northern California when their 38-foot yacht was hit by powerful waves, smashed into rocks and capsized during a race. The accident prompted the Coast Guards temporary suspension of races outside San Francisco Bay. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, May 2, 2012Page 5D CHRIS DAMIAN; 7.444"; 5"; Black; 5/1/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 9 9 3 3 8 8 3 3 HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports may ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 9 9 3 3 9 9 6 6 runs, while striking out 98 and walking just seven. Theyre a big 6Aschool and its going to be a tough task, Sebring head coach Buck Rapp said. This isnt at all to suggest that the Streaks are in over their heads, just facing as strong a competition as they have this season. For some of Sebrings numbers match up well with t he Spongers. The team batting average for the season was a strong .283, and while Tarpon Springs scored five more runs, they played two more games. Seth Abeln lead the Streaks at a .360 clip and a dded 17 RBI and a teamhigh 28 runs scored. Wyatt Johnson batted .317, Cullen Lovett .309 and Nate Greene .289, while also leading the squad with 21 runs batted in. Sebring was also just as swift on the base paths, totaling 60 stolen bases, to the Spongers 63. Perhaps the big difference is seen on the mound. Not necessarily in pitching ability, in that opponents batting averages arent all that different against each staff. Aaron Hart held opposing batters to a .215 average, J ordan Baker to a .185 average and Greene to .250. Both staffs surrendered three home runs on the seas on, and the Streaks actually had fewer wild pitches than Tarpon Springs. But where the numbers start to separate, are in matters of control. From the strong batting average against numbers, the Spongers held their opponents down in the on base percentages meaning fewer walks allowed, fewer hitbatsmen. From Dunigans .157 for batting average, the on-base percentage only rises to .189, due to those seven walks and two hit batters. With a pitcher like that, you know hes going to be around the plate, Rapp said. We should be able to put the ball in play and hopefully we can go in, execute and scratch for some runs. From Hart, Baker and Greenes respective averages against, the on-base percentages jump to .304, .331 and .344, respectively, due to an overall addition of 62 walks and 20 hit batters between the trio. Weve had eight months of practice for this, Rapp said. We just have to go in relaxed and play like we have nothing to lose. We just have to be seven innings better, really, just one inning better, if Aaron can keep us close. Most other areas being relatively equal, it might just be about keeping those extra Spongers off base.

Sebring just needs to be seven innings better By FREDERIC J. FROMMER Associated PressW ASHINGTON The judge in the Roger Clemens perjury trial may be on the verge of letting the government show the former pitchers jury just how widespread steroids and human growth hormone were in the sport. Its a move Clemens lawyers would like to avoid but may have brought on themselves. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said Monday that if the Clemens defense team continues its attack on a 2008 congressional hearing in which Clemens is alleged to have lied, government prosecutors should be allowed to present a larger picture of why the hearing took place. W alton asked the government to show him the kind of information it wants to present. Aprosecutor gave a hint at the end of Mondays session with the jury out of the room dropping the names of admitted drug users among major league players, such as Chuck Knoblauch and Jose Canseco. The defense fears this could taint Clemens with guilt-by-association. Prosecutors said its a necessary rebuttal to questions raised by Clemens lawyer about the motive for the hearing. They cant have their cake and eat it, too, prosecutor Steven Durham said. This simply isnt fair. Clemens is on trial for allegedly lying in a 2008 congressional deposition and hearing when he said he never used steroids or HGH. Clemenslawyer Rusty Hardin opened up the possibility of a wider trial into steroid use with his questioning of the governments first witness, Phil Barnett. He was majority staff director for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee when that panel held the 2008 hearing. Barnett said the hearing was a legitimate use of congressional power because it could have led to legislation. How, Hardin asked in an incredulous tone, could asking Clemens whether he ever discussed HGH with strength coach Brian McNamee possibly lead to legislation? After the government objected, Walton said hed allow that line of questioning, but cautioned Hardin that he was opening the door to the wider government case. That was one of a barrage of no fewer than 16 objections from the government. Walton handled some of them quickly, but on others he either cleared the jury from the room, or put on a sound machine to block jurors from hearing, while he huddled with lawyers from both sides. During one of those breaks, two of the jurors could be seen with their eyes closed. Prosecutors used Barnett to try to establish that Congress was within i ts bounds in holding the hearing two months after Clemens was named in a 2007 report to the Commissioner of Baseball on drug use in the sport. The government has maintained that it was important for Congress to learn whether the report was accurate, in part because of concerns about steroids and HGH as a public health issue. Hardin complained that the congressional hearing was nothing more than a show trial. Determining whether Clemens was telling the truth when he denied the reports claims, he said, is not a legitimate role for Congress. Hardin raised the issue of whether Clemenstestimony at the hearing was truly voluntary suggesting that Clemens might have been subpoenaed had he not agreed to appear. But Barnett wouldnt concede that the pitcher would have been subpoenaed had he declined the committees invitation; he said such a move was not automatic. With Barnett on the stand, the government played portions of Clemenstelevised testimony at the February 2008 hearing as well as an audiotape of the deposition that preceded it. Let me be clear: I have never used steroids or HGH, Clemens said confidently in the videotape of the hearing. AP Sports Writer Joseph White contributed to this report.
