A list of the proposed rezones and amendments revealed 18 properties that P&Z have recommended to city staff for changes. The rezones are intended to achieve easier redevelopment around Harder Hall, future development plans and to simplify the zoning codes. The purpose of this is to market Harder Hall, Polatty explained Thursday morning. Polatty also described the proposed rezones as taking care of city issues. The majority of the 16 proposed amen dments were given the go-ahead by council members (excluding Scott Stanley who was not present during Tuesdays meeting). Acouple of plans however did raise an eyebrow or two during discussions. I envision a push-back from the property owners on this one, council member John Clark said regarding the fourth proposed rezone. Polatty and P&Zs plan to rezone existing residential homes between 3200 and 3292 Golfview Road would allow light commercial in the area according to the proposed plan.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comAVON PARK It was a week filled with hugs and laughter for Lois Baumann, a local pre-kindergarten teachers assistant. Baumann recently discovered her four siblings after six decades of not even knowing they existed. Baumann used her newly gained birth certificate to track down the names of her biological parents, Katherine and Jack. Both birth parents are deceased, however, she was able to track down her four siblings. Baumann flew to Chicago last Saturday to meet her siblings after a months worth of phone conversations and getting to know one another. The last to arrive at the Midway Airport, Baumann was greeted by smiling faces and cameras. They all waited for me at the airport. I cant even explain it; it was all so nice, Baumann said.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Incumbent school superintendent Wally Cox is running for re-election. He has served three terms. Cox has deep roots in Highlands County. His great-grandfather was the first clerk of the court. His grandmother, mother and children all graduated from Sebring High School, as did he. After graduating from Florida State University, Cox returned to Sebring taking a job with the school district in 1976, working in the finance, budgeting and accounting departments. Thirty-six years later Im still with the school district, he said, thats important to me. He grinned. Ive attended almost every school board meeting since 1976. In early 2000, when then superintendent Bill Farmer decided to retire, Cox chose to run for the position. I worked with five superintendents, he said, and looking at it from the day-to-day felt that most of their time was spent on the budget process. Cox seeking fourth bid as superintendent Wally Cox has served three terms as superintendent of schools.

Kevin Roberts, CEO of the Champion for Children Foundation, will provide a By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Memorial E lementary School teacher Marie Daniels couldnt have b een more proud as she told members of the school board that art projects created by t hree of her students Dylan Thomas (who is b lind), Cameron Nacino and Jessica Garay had artwork selected for a statewide e xhibit at the University of South Florida student education department. The students took part in a special program provided by V SAFlorida, the state organization on arts and disability. According to its website, the VSAartist in residency program fosters opportunities f or all students, including those with disabilities, to s uccessfully learn life skills through the arts. Daniels explained that beginning last March Florida artist Richard Bond spend five weeks with her students working on three separate art p rojects. First the children were shown how to create patterns using primary and secondary colors. Each student painted his or her pattern. Then they worked as a group combining their individual patterning effort into a group collage. They created a tree and a house. Finally they worked with paper mache, each making a frog. Daniels said she tied-in the frog project with the science curriculum so the students learned about the life cycle of frogs. Dylan, Cameron and Jessicas individual patterning projects were selected for the exhibition. Ina comment on the VSA site Bond wrote about Dylan: Working in the visual arts with a student who was sight limited was a challenge, but after I got to know him the projects worked very well with him. Daniels is not surprised. My kids are super, she said. She believes her students are successful because, I try not to restrict my teaching to their handicap. I base it on the ability of the student. VSAwas founded in 1981 and is a program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Administered by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, this program bans unsolicited telemarketing calls to residential, mobile and paging telephone numbers. The most recent improvement in the program is the elimination of the annual fee. Your residential and/or cell phone number will be listed for five years at no charge. This only takes a few minutes on the internet and is sure worth a peaceful family dinner without a telemarketer calling. I did it myself and it is easy, Benton said in a press release. If you do not have access at home to a computer, check with a neighbor, go to the library, or come by the sheriffs office and we will help you out. Phone numbers are added to the registry quarterly. For example, persons who signed up for this program prior to May 25 will be added to the list on July 1. The next batch of numbers will be added on Oct. 1 and must be submitted by Aug. 25. According to the Department of Agricultures website (www.freshfromflorida.com) consumers can sign up at www.800helpfla.com or by calling 1-800-HELP-FLA (1-800-435-7352) or 1-800FL-AYUDA(1-800-3529832) for Spanish speaking callers. Unfortunately Florida law does not prohibit charities or political groups from making telephone solicitations. Sales calls from companies that you have done business with in the past are also exempt from the law. Despite these limitations, the Department of Agriculture reports that almost 100,000 Floridians registered over 220,000 phone numbers by the end of May. With these additions almost 300,000 phone numbers will be on Floridas Do Not Call list as of July 1. For more information on Floridas Do Not Call list please visit the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services website (www.freshfromflorida.com).

My purpose? A short story writing workshop, conducted by Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Gardner Dozois. I went to this workshop armed with nothing more than a few Star Trek stories, a fantasy story Id thrown together for the occasion and a burning desire to write fiction. Good fiction. The week was an eyeopener. I was with 12 other writers, all in a house that where we shared two bathrooms and a kitchen. I knew no one before coming here. I had never been to Lincoln City. Some people in Florida probably thought I was crazy for going. But Id come to realize that writing was my passion. To be able to tell a story that affected others, to play in other worlds, to create something no one else could I wanted to do this. I wanted to do it well. The workshop promised to help me achieve those goals. So, even though it might have been crazy, I went. Besides, I never claimed to be sane in the first place. I came out of that workshop with a number of things: Some writing tools I didnt even know existed at the time. Confidence that yes, while I had a ways to go, I had it in me to be that great writer I wanted to be. And relationships that continue to this day. Fast forward seven years. I have been to the Oregon Coast many, many times. It has become familiar to me. Ive lost count on the number of workshops Ive been a part of. My writing has grown. No longer am I that trembling woman whose fiction writing was barely readable. Im not saying that my writing is perfect, but it is far, far better than those first attempts all that time ago. And as I type this I am back in Lincoln City. I have been here since last Saturday attending, again, a short story workshop. Some things havent changed. Kris is still teaching this class. Like last time, we were required to read a large number of short stories. The emphasis of the class is still on craft and how to take your writing up to the next level. We still work hard. Sleep gets sacrificed in the name of getting work done. It is now mid-week and several of us are not sure of our names, much less anything else. This is considered normal. I admit I still tremble a little when my work is evaluated, but my skin has grown thicker over the years. And I still have things to learn and Im still gaining new tools. This hasnt changed. Other things are different. There is no more workshop house. Instead, were put up in a wonderful hotel called the Anchor. This means I have my own bathroom, a decided advantage. We meet at a new place called WMG Publications. Its a great place to hang out if youre a bookworm like I am. Right now Im sitting here in the classroom typing this up while were on a break. Books and wifi. Im a happy camper. And of course Im not the same person I was seven years ago. Im somewhat older and hopefully a little wiser. And as I said earlier, I am a better writer than I was before. I will leave here this weekend grateful for what Ive experienced. And I will be back for more. If that makes me crazy, so be it.

Florida Hospital contributes to countys healthEditor: Wed like to recognize Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center for its vision and support of the Heartland Triathlon, which was held this past Fathers Day weekend. Seven years ago, Florida Hospital signed on as the title sponsor for our event whose goal is to provide the highest quality Sprint Triathlon possible for our athletes, volunteers, guests, sponsors, and community. The mission of Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and its affiliates is to serve our community by providing quality health care services and promoting wellness and healthful living. One of the strongly held principles Florida Hospital lives by is a Focus on Community Wellness Wecommit time, talent and financial support to educate our neighbors in the principles of illness prevention and healthful living. We recall the health and fitness landscape in Highlands County prior to the Heartland Triathlon. At that time, it was rare to see someone walking on the sidewalk around Lake Jackson, let alone riding a bike or jogging. At that time, there was no biking/jogging/walking trail from the YMCAto Highlands Hammock State Park. Back then, Chet Brojek and Cherie Starr hosted the very few 5K run/walk events in the community. During those first few years, there was a tremendous buzz surrounding the Heartland Triathlon. Hundreds of locals got off the couch and began exercising. Upon finishing their first triathlon, most were hookedafter seeing the dramatic improvement in their quality of life due to being healthier and more fit. Positive word of mouth rapidly spread when there had been an obvious positive change in someones life. This positive word of mouth continues today as dozens and dozens of first-time locals again challenged themselves to complete the 2012 event. Today, seven short years later, the health and fitness landscape of Highlands County has dramatically changed, in a very positive way. Not a day goes by when we dont see walkers, joggers, and cyclists on the sidewalk around Lake Jackson. The trail from the YMCAto Highlands Hammock State Park gets used every day. There is a 5K run/walk event nearly every weekend somewhere within Highlands County. In addition to the health/fitness aspect of these 5K events, proceeds from nearly all of them go to a charitable cause. Over the past several years, Highlands County has added several fitness center and personal training options to include: Golds Gym, Fitness Together, Anytime Fitness, and a renovated YMCA, along with Florida Hospitals 24-Hour Fitness Center in Lake Placid. Franchises like these are now able to flourish in Highlands County due to the increased demand/awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In 2007, the Heartland Triathlon added a kids event so children ages 515 could join in the fun while supporting the same health and fitness values of the adult event. Today, the event is host to the USATFlorida Regional Youth Championships. In addition, there is now a local youth triathlon team as well as a kids race series. Many have offered the opinion that the Heartland Triathlon was the stimulus for the very positive and obvious health and fitness trend that has taken place in our county over the past seven years. There is no question it has been a significant contributor to the healthier landscape that now exists in Highlands County and for that we want to again recognize Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center for its continued support as title sponsor. Today, the Heartland Triathlon has grown to the point where it is acknowledged as one of the premier Sprint Triathlons in Florida. Today world and national champion athletes visit our county each June. Today, our hotels and restaurants are packed with out of town guests every Fathers Day weekend. Aside from the obvious very positive economic impact the Heartland Triathlon brings to our community, the health and wellness impact on our local community has been immeasurable. Thank you again Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center. Heartland Triathlon Team The Good, the Bad and the UglyEditor: Highlands County in the news: Rick Helms (dont know him); Christina Anderson (heard great things and she even brought a new business here); Roberta Peck (shes for the arts); Jeff Roth and Kevin Roberts (what can we say?); Tourist Development Council; Darryl Scott; Aaron Doty; Jonathan Rodriquez and Kenneth Felipe; Judge Ritenour; Judge Susan Barber Flood (great woman); Fred Leavitt (really trying); All of us. Basically most of us all want the same thing: Peace; Change for the better (who decides what is better?); Fulfillment and the chance to do good, making a difference; Love; Understanding from others and to others, to be heard as ourselves; Less judgment against ourselves by ourselves and others; Justice; To lose a few pounds; Wisdom and acceptance. I guess our county is a small example of a big world trying to do our best and having success and failure simultaneously. Gail Leavitt Sebring And the public should be included in the process. The Sebring council r ecently decided to withdraw from the hiring committee in the search for a Community Redevelopment Agency director. The motivations for doing so are a topic of anothe r discussion, but the fact remains they should be at the t able to protect those they serve. To protect and to serve s hould be a motto on not only the side of police cars, but on e very desk at every city hall and county office. We are in no way trying to argue that the CRAis not capable, just that everyone should be at the table when the decision is made. Every group involved should participate in the process in order to bring out the full representation from different viewpoints. Participating, not dominating, in the hiring process for an administrator is crucial to insuring the elected officials are doing what they can to protect the taxpayer. By removing itself, the city council is removing the public input it represents. It is showing it does not want to be an active part of the hiring process of a top official who will be paid for with taxpayer money the council is assigned to oversee. Not actively spend, in this instance, but oversee. The public is being left out of the discussion when their representatives walk away from the table. At the county level, the question of who will sit in the county administrator seat is also being discussed, but in this case, the public has been told by the board chair they are not invited to participate. Again, the reasons are not the topic of discussion at this point. What is clear is the fact that the public pays for the salary of the county administrator with their own sweat and hard-earned tax money, but they are getting no say in the process. Just because the county administrator is hired and fired by just five votes on the board, we cannot overlook the fact that job is also part of the public trust. Just like in Sebring, although for different reasons, the public is not guaranteed their say in the selection of the directors and employees. Whoever sits in that administrative seat is the not the boards employee, but the publics employee. All we ask is that all the agencies work together in the spirit of public trust. Come now, let us reason together. Come now, let us reason together When it comes to making decisions about hiring local government administrators, everyone should be at the same table and have the same agenda.

T urns out, the culprit was a piranha the family kept in an aquarium. Doctors determined the bite wasnt from a dog after the girl was rushed to a hospital by ambulance Tuesday night. Cook County Sheriffs Department spokesman Frank Bilecki tells the Chicago Tribune the girls father cut open one of two piranhas and found the fingertip. He says doctors tried to reattach the fingertip, but he didnt know if they were successful. He didnt immediately respond to messages left Saturday by The Associated Press, and a hospital spokesman couldnt provide the information. Bilecki says the parents were distraught and arent facing charges. Pet piranha bites off toddlers fingertip Your Daily PaperDelivered the same way for the past 85 years. rrs\022\53\022sEBRINGf&,\023

C M Y K The Associated PressAjury took less than two days to find Jerry Sandusky guilty of 45 of 48 counts of child sexual abuse, but the judge will need substantially more time to decide his punishment. Judge John Cleland ordered a pre-sentencing report, which will take anywhere from one to two months to complete. During that time, Sandusky will be examined by the state Sexual Offenders Assessment Board to decide if he should be treated as a sexually violent predator, and prosecutors could ask the judge for a hearing. The judge determines whether someone is a sexually violent predator it carries stiffer reporting and treatment requirements once someone is out of prison and can use information from the boards investigation in a sentencing decision. If hes sentenced to state prison which appears to be certain in this case then Sandusky will be transferred to Camp Hill, in south-central Pennsylvania, which has 3,000 to 4,000 inmates, about 1,000 of whom are held temporarily for classification. New inmates are put through a battery of medical, dental, psychiatric, psychological, vocational and educational testing, according to Department of Corrections spokeswoman Sue Bensinger, who spoke generally about a male inmate convicted in Centre County and not of Sanduskys case in particular. He would then be placed in a state prison. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, June 24, 2012Page 5A MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; summer camps; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 7 7 6 6 1 1 MUSSELMAN APPLIANCES; 11.25"; 10.5"; Process color; process, right side only p/u; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 8 8 4 4 4 4 l ings gathered at the home of her brother for a family reunion. The siblings spent their time getting to know each other and their families t hroughout the week. I never thought that this c ould happen. It is so weird that we found each other, Baumann said. Though the siblings were brought together after years o f not knowing their birth mother, they didnt spend a whole lot of time in the past. We dont know why she gave us up, Baumann said. Its OK. The three of us that got adopted, we all went to really good homes. I have m y mother and father; they raised me. Carmen and Angelo have their mother and father. The siblings discovered e ach others baby photos, grandchildren and even a bit o f heritage. Its weird seeing people that look like you that youre just getting to know ... I had one of my baby photos with me. I saw one of Kathys and we look so much alike. We all have dark hair and dark eyes being of Italian background and I found out Im also part Portuguese, Baumann said. The Portuguese heritage comes from Baumanns birth father, Jack; her birth mother, Katherine, was half Italian and half Sicilian, according to Baumann. We really didnt talk too much about that (parents). We spent our time together in the present, Baumann said. As for the future, Baumann plans to keep in touch with Rick, Kathleen, Angelo and Carmen and the siblings all plan to visit one another frequently. Kathy is flying back in to Chicago in July. Rick has a summer home down here over in Bradenton, so I will get to visit with him and his wife there and Ill see them a bit. Weve already made plans for everyone to come here next Christmas. Im on cloud nine, Baumann said. Baumann made an enormous amount of new memories with a family shes always wondered about. The trip was more than Baumann, or her siblings, couldve ever dreamed of and she is happy how everything fell into place. My favorite moment was at the airport when I was walking through baggage claim. It felt like I was walking for about nine hours, then I saw them. Seeing each other for the first time, that was just such a very special moment. Ill never forget it, Baumann said.

Reunion unites family Two other properties were not immediately accepted by council Harder Hall Golf Course and Hidden Beach. The proposed rezone would, if approved, change the zoning from MUQD (Mixed Use Quality Development) to an R-1 (Residential 1) zoning and the comprehensive plan from recreation to a medium density plan. The county owns the southern part of the course, the last 10 or 11 holes, and has it zoned as R-1 so that is what P&Z picked, Polatty said during the meeting T uesday. The Hidden Beach proposal would retain the public zoning of the area but change the comp plan from medium density residential to recreation. The idea is that if we were ever to redevelop that, maybe we should leave it as medium density and then rezone it ... the zoning has been public there for a while, Polatty said. That one was given to the city, and so was Crescent Beach, council president John Griffin added. To be used as recreation, am I right? asked Clark. Council members finished the list of proposals, quickly giving nods for the go-ahead to the remaining rezones and comp plan changes. The goal is to get rid of MUQD zoning, which may be impossible, but that is the goal, Polatty said. Council members vot ed unanimously to instruct staff to continue with the plans. We will have to hold public hearings on these ... youre just instructing staff to go forward with the amendments, City Attorney Bob Swaine said. P&Z will review the items again before bringing the information back to council. Continued from page 1A Rezoning goal is marketing Harder Hall for city to sell Whats next for Jerry Sandusky?

C M Y K He added that he was encouraged by friends and coworkers to run. I prayed over the decision, he said. Im not going to say (my wife Tricia Cox) was delighted. I will tell you I love it. Its not an ego thing. We have wonderful teachers and staff, its a joy to go to work. The last few years have been challenging. Weve lost $18 million (in funding) over the last five years. Weve not cut direct services to students, but it has impacted teachers who are doing more with less. Im astounded at how well they do. They do mission work, thats what they do. I cant thank them enough. We have positioned ourselves well for 2012-2013, he said, adding the budget will balance. There will be very few changes. Cox said while he did not want to cut salaries or jobs, he has had to cut 225 positions. He did most of that through attrition. Last year it impacted my wife (a media specialist) when we had to cut media specialists from 17 to six. What Cox takes the greatest pride in, however, is how students are doing better over the last 12 years. He ticked off the districts improvements: advanced academics, the Career Academy, the International Baccalaureate program, keeping abreast with new technology in the classroom, and adding remedial resources. Many of the improvements, like the IB program and advanced academics, couldnt have happened without community support and leadership, he said. Im more an enabler, my staff does the work. I believe weve done some remarkable things. Among new challenges, Cox said, is the states revision of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test and its scoring; the states mandate for teacher and principal evaluations; and the cost of phasing in e-books and upgrading computers not just for students, but in the business office as well. Funding will continue to be a problem. I think it would be difficult for a new person to step into this, he said. I know whats been cut. I know what first to put back. Id like to see us through this cycle over the next few years, then leave it with somebody who can take it to the next level. presentation regarding the status and plans for the Champion for Children Circle Theatre.

M arco Rubio scolded politicians from both parties Friday for using illegal immigration as a political tool rather than finding comp romise on a difficult, divisive issue. He accused both sides of not being willing to make serious attempts to solve the i ssue because its easier to raise money and win votes if left unsolved. I have seen people take the legitimate concerns about illegal immigration and turn i t into panic, and turn that panic into fear and anger and t urn that anger into votes and money. I have also seen people go in the other direction. A nyone who disagrees with their ideas on illegal immig ration is anti-immigrant and anti-Hispanic. Thats ridiculous, Rubio said at the National Association of Latino Elected and A ppointed Officials annual conference. As an example, Rubio mentioned his own efforts to seek support for a proposal that would allow young illegal immigrants to remain in the country under certain conditions. It was Rubios attempt to find a compromise on the DREAM Act, formally the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act. Earlier this month, President Barack Obama said his administration will not deport young illegal immigrants the same people that would have been helped under the Rubio proposal. But Rubio said when he first proposed his idea, Democrats immediately dismissed it. I was accused of supporting a DREAM Act without a dream. Of course, a few months later the president takes a similar idea and implements it through executive action and now its the greatest idea in the world. I dont care who gets the creditI dont but it exposes the fact that this issue is all about politics to some people. Not just Democrats, Republicans too, Rubio said. He said the only way the issue will be resolved is if both sides admit its complicated and look at it as a human, rather than political, issue. Yes, it is a law and order issue, but its also a human issue. These are real people. These are human beings who have children and hopes and dreams. These are people that are doing what virtually any of us would do if our children were hungry. Rubio calls for compromise on immigration reforms Marco Rubio No bond for exprincipal charged in stabbingsLEALMAN (AP) Aformer school principal accused of killing two people during a rampage has been denied bond. Anthony Giancola made his first court appearance Saturday, when a judge refused to grant him bond. The 45-year-old has been charged with first-degree murder and other counts. Authorities say he went on a drugor alcohol-induced rampage on Friday, killing two people. Officials say Giancola stabbed several people, crashed his car into a crowded porch and then attacked a couple at a motel.

C M Y K LIVING B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, June 24, 2012 Evaluateyourdriving. While most seniors are experienced drivers,its important to take time to consider ones driving healthand habits. For instance,how frequently do you wear a seatbelt? Do you use your signal and check for nearby traffic before changing lanes?Doestrafficcauseyoutofeelanxious?Whenwas the last time you had an eye exam? You can take a Driver 65 Plus self-assessment at www.SeniorDriving.AAA.com to get a clear picture of just how good your driving skills really are,and youll also get suggestions for improving your driving. Beawareofhowagingaffectsdrivinghabits.From hearing and vision loss,to mental fitness and reaction time,seniors may not notice the gradual differences that can impact their driving ability. For instance,by age 60,your eyes need three times the amount of light to see properly as they do for people 20 years old,which means its more difficult to see at night. Likewise,one-third of Americans suffer from hearing loss by age 65. This can pose a problem,as senior drivers may be unable to hear high-pitched noises such as emergency response vehicles while on the road. Reaction times can be slower for seniors as well. But preventative measures can go a long way.When following other vehicles,seniors should increase the distance between their car and the car in front of them,to allow more time to react to sudden braking.Eliminating distractions in the vehicle and avoiding heavy traffic can also help seniors identify emergency sirens,and avoiding driving at night is another safer option for seniors. Findtherightfit.With the wide array of vehicles offering all sorts of convenience features,seniors may not realize that their car may not be optimally adjusted to fit them. For example,sitting too close to the steering wheel can interfere with steeringand cause fatigue,as well as injury,should the airbag deploy during a collision.Make sure you have at least 10 to 12 inches between your chest and the steering wheel.When seated properly, you should be able to see the ground in front of your car within 12 to 15 feet and 1 1/2 car widths left and right.Visit www.car-fit.org to assess the safety of your vehicle,find the proper seat and mirror adjustments and more. Takearefresher course.No matter how many years a driver has been on the road,a refresher course can help reinforce the basics such as identifying road signs,as well as provide information on updated driving rules and new vehicle technologies. Talkwithyour doctorandpharmacist.Ensure that the medications you take both prescription and over-the-counter will not impair your ability to drive safely. In addition,make sure all your medications go through one pharmacy,so the pharmacists on staff can better assess any potential drug interactions. To help older drivers and their families deal with driving and mobility challenges related to aging,AAA has launched a new website (www.SeniorDriving.AAA.com) to make a comprehensive suite of tools and resources available at the click of a button. From an Ask-the-Expert feature to Roadwise Review an online screening tool that measures functional abilities (like vision and reaction time) linked to crash risk and more,all of the features are free to site visitors. The site also offers links and resources to help families find other means of transportation when their loved one is no longer able to drive safely. Top5driving tipsforseniors1. Prepare for a drive by adjusting your mirrors and seat to ensure you can see properly. Always wear a seatbelt. 2. Eliminate distractions,such as the car radio,which can interfere with your ability to hear emergency response vehicle sirens and other important sounds. 3. Avoid driving in bad weather, heavy traffic or at night. 4. Making left-hand turns can be difficult for people with limited vision. Avoid left-hand turns at intersections with signals by making three right hand turns around the block when possible. 5. Manage slower reaction times by increasing the amount of space between your vehicle and the car in front of you, allowing for more time to react to sudden braking. FAMILY FEATURES Since January 2011,nearly 10,000 Americans turn 65 every day,joining the fastest growing age group in the nation. According to a recent American Automobile Association (AAA) survey of that booming population,nearly half of seniors worry about losing their freedom and mobility when the time comes for them to transition from driver to passenger. From understanding how vision changes can affect ones ability to drive at night,to researching the effects certain medications can have on ones driving ability,its important to get the facts about driving for seniors. Use these tips from AAA to help ensure you and your family members are driving safely: Adjust your mirrors and seat to ensure you can see properl y. Always wear a seatbelt. TipsforfamilymembersIf youre concerned about the safety of a senior family member,look to resources such as their doctor or your local DMV,that can help identify their capacity to drive,and find transportation resources to help them man age daily needs:If your family member has received two traffic citations,warnings or been involved in two collisions or near misseswithin a two year period,it may be time to look for other forms of transportation. Make sure your family member speaks with their doctor and pharmacist about prescription and over-the-counter medications that may impair their ability to drive safely.Talk with family members,friends and neighbors about organizing a car pool to help seniors who need rides find transportation. Look to local public and supplemental transportation options as well.

C M Y K Dear Abby: I have set the guest list for my Fourth of July party. A few people I entertained last year will not be invited back this summer. Perhaps theyll recognize themselves when they read the following list: (1) You arrived emptyhanded. (2) You arrived early and stayed late. (3) You never reciprocated. Its OK if you dont entertain in your home,but how about a restaurant,bar or cafe? (4) You complained about what I served. (5) You solicited free advice from other guests who are legal or medical professionals. No guest in my home should have to work. (If you need a doctor or a lawyer,call their office during the week to make an appointment.) (6) You raided our liquor cabinet without permission. (7) You complained about how bad the traffic was getting here. Abby,thanks for the forum. San Francisco Hostess Dear Hostess: Hmmm. So you have been entertaining a collection of complaining moochers. I dont blame you for paring down your guest list. Im sure it will make your Fourth of July parties more enjoyable and less stressful in the future. Dear Abby: My mother-inlaw,Lisa,is 50 and married to husband No. 5. Ill call him Steve.He is 38. (Lisas son is 31.) The problem isnt the age difference. Its the fact that her husband refuses to hold a steady job. Steve is often between jobsfor six to eight months at a crack. Lisa had a job with the same company for 28 years and has a very nice income. My husband and I are sick of seeing Steve mooching off his mom. He drives around in a new truck,dresses well,has a nice place to live and anything else he wants all at my mother-in-laws expense. Abby,she retired recently, and Steve is spending her retirement money faster than its coming in. What can we do to get rid of this bum? Bummed Out in Georgia Dear Bummed Out:There is nothing you can do. After five husbands,Lisa knows what she wants. She wants a companion and is willing to pay the price. Its her money,and she has a right to spend it any way she wishes. Im sorry,but not as sorry as she will be when her money runs out and Steve latches onto another meal ticket. Dear Abby: My parents will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary this summer. I know this is a huge deal for them,and Id like to do something really nice. I have been considering throwing them a party because they were never able to have a real wedding reception. It would probably include a guest list of about 150. However,because I am a fulltime college student,my funds are limited. I want to do something my parents will like,but I dont know how Ill pay for it. What could I do that will be nice, but not require me to take out a loan? Amy in Tennessee Dear Amy: Under no circumstances should you take out a loan in order to give your parents an anniversary party you cant afford. Figure out how many people you can afford to entertain within your budget or just take your parents out for a nice dinner. I am positive that whatever you do for them they will deeply appreciate.

He looked back at his parents for a brief moment before falling into our arms for a tight hug. Then we heard 3-year-old Hayleys delighted exclamation as she ran for our embraces. Thats when our son told us about Jonathons recent wish. Though he didnt get to make the trip to our house,we were the main ingredient in his desire to travel. And there we were! When our hearts desires are right and please God, our wishes develop wings and fly to Gods ears as prayers. I believe this is what happened for Jonathon. God didnt exactly give him the trip (which would have been impossible for his parents at that time),but he gave him us. In essence, this is a lesson in knowing that though we may not always know how God will answer; he will answer. And his answer will surprise and delight us. However,we often try to manipulate the circumstances ourselves. We want to be in control and may even get pretty far in our attempts to fulfill our aspirations. However,it is pretty certain that when we take matters into our own hands we will encounter fretting and unwanted anxiety. But,if we are really seeking God first and his best for our lives,then we need to do only that which we sense him directing us to doand leave the rest with him. In Psalm 37:1-7,NKJV, we read that we are not to fret,nor be envious; but rather to Trust in the Lord, and do gooddelight yourself also in the Lord,and He shall give you the desires of your heart. The verses go on to encourage us to commit our ways to the Lord and rest in Him. The most difficult part of the verse is wait patiently for Him. When we do,though, Gods rest will be the certainty we have in him that he will come throughwhile we remain breathlessly expectant of how he may choose to surprise us.Selah Jan Merop is a News-Sun correspondent.

Cosmic fog is clouding Virgos reality this week Horoscope July Fourth hostess thinks some guests have fizzled Dear Abby ATLANTA (AP) Four decades ago,the movie Deliveranceintroduced the lush north Georgia mountains to the world. Though many in the region still bristle at the movies portrayal of locals as uneducated hillbillies,the film helped create the $20 million rafting and outdoor sports industry along the Chattooga River,which splits Georgia and South Carolina. Several movies have filmed in the area this year because of the natural beauty showcased in Deliverance,including next years Killing Seasonwith Robert DeNiro and John Travolta. This weekend,communities along the Chattooga are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the movies release with the first-ever Chattooga River Festival,even though some locals are unhappy with the idea of reminding the world of the areas connection to the movie. Its one of those cases where some good comes out of most everything,said Stan Darnell,chairman of the Rabun County,Ga., board of commissioners. Ga., SC mountains mark Deliverance anniversary

C M Y K By SUE MANNING Associated PressLOS ANGELES Have you seen this dog? Its a mutt mischievous, medium-sized,scruffy and street-smart with soulful e yes. Comfortable as hero or underdog,yet likely to be a stray. Must be a fast learner, able to charm millions and willing to work for food. Brandon Camp,whose father created Benjinearly 40 years ago,and veteran movie trainer Mark Forbes have set out to find a new Benji in a nationwide search t hat includes online tools and sites that werent around w hen the first four Benjis were discovered. A Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/b enjithemovie) has been set u p so pet owners and shelter staffs can post pictures and videos of dogs they think could be the next Benji. Camp and Forbes will s cour photos of pets from shelters and rescues across t he country,along with sites like petfinder.com and adoptapet.com. Forbes said he w as personally visiting every shelter within 75 miles of L os Angeles,where he is general manager and head trainer at Birds and Animals U nlimited. The original 1974 movie Benjiis about a stray who h elps save two kidnapped children. It was written,produced, directed and financed by Camps father,Joe Camp. When he couldnt find a distributor,he and his wife,the l ate Carolyn Camp,decided to do it themselves. There would be four sequels,several TV specials, a Saturday morning TV series,a syndicated comic strip and all kinds of merc handizing deals. More than 73 million people would see Benjiat theaters and more than a billion people around the world watch it on television. Millions of DVDs would be sold. The original Benji was Higgins,adopted in the early 1960s from the Burbank Animal Shelter by late animal trainer Frank Inn. Higgins played Dog in the television series Petticoat Junctionfor several years. At the age of 14,he became Benji. The second Benji was Higginsdaughter,the third was a distant relative and the fourth was adopted from the Humane Society of South Mississippi. I only have snapshot memories of the original, said Brandon Camp,who was just 3 years old when Benjicame out. The second Benji is the one I grew up with and traveled with and knew and loved. The dog was so much a part of his life,he was nicknamed Benji at school. The two of them were constantly on the go from White House Easter egg hunts to morning shows,late shows and show-and-tells. I missed most of my first grade because I was traveling around with Benji,said Camp,who directed Love Happens. When he was 6 or 7, Camp went to New York so Benji could ride a float in the Macys parade,where thousands of people were trying to get close to see him. It was the first time I realized what kind of star he was,he remembers. Camp said the new movie will stay true to the heart of the original Benji. Parents and grandparents will recognize the spirit of Benji,he said. He was always a mutt and will always be a mutt. He is the everydog. But can a sequel be as good as the original? Besides millions of Benji fans making comparisons, Camp is aware his father, who now lives in Tennessee, will be watching,too. The irony is he doesnt have to say a thing. I hear his voice constantly in my head. If I screw this up,I have to look him in the eye, he said. Dad doesnt seem concerned. His script is fantastic and I have no doubt that he will discover and be directing the best Benji ever,Joe Camp said. A Benji movie nearly four decades after the original has two main things going for it, said David Brokaw,a veteran Los Angeles publicist, personal manager and dog lover. First,the fans will span those decades,from kids to grandparents. Secondly,its about a dog. I dont think theres anything bigger right now,Brokaw said. Camp says he will know instantly when he looks int o the right dogs eyes. Forbes said hell need to spend a little time with the dog to judge its temperament. Forbes is used to animals Hes done Dalmatians, Dr. Doolittle,Marley and Me,We Bought a Zoo, Mr. Poppers Penguins, Evan Almightyand Zookeeper. There will be backup Benjis,but no stunt double s, the men said. The actors havent been cast for the movie yet,but Walden Media (The Chronicles of Narniaseries) is producing the film. Forbes has watched the original Benjifour or fiv e times. Hes looking for a dog that can perform a sad scene so that the viewer cries. The dog must be athletic,fearless,outgoing and happy to please with goofy traits. When Forbes finds a movie dog at a shelter,he makes sure the dog has a home when fame fades. On e of the dogs in his own backyard is Cole,who was also known as The Shaggy Dog and Tim Allen in 2006. Camp and Forbes also hope happy endings extend beyond their own backyard s. When a dog stars in a movie, there is usually a rush to own a similar dog,Camp said. Hes hoping for a run on mutts. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, June 24, 2012Page 3B church page; 5.542"; 7.1"; Black; church page dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 8 8 champion for children; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; champion for children; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 8 8 4 4 5 5 The search is on for a mutt who will become Benji MCT Joe Camp, shown with the 2002 incarnation of Benji, was the man who wrote and directed the original Benji movie.

C M Y K By LARRY LEVEY News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Shes an a ward-winning,published author who writes because she must write. Sunny Serafinos most recent accomplishment has been the p ublication of Finding Amyby Double Edge Press,a Christian publishing company. A copy of her 12th novel now sits in a book rack on a s helf in her at-home office, surrounded by her 11 other p ublished novels and one memoir,with yet another novel in the works and two o r three under development. Talking about her writing c areer,she says,I grow with each book I write. I feel Finding Amyis my bestwritten book so far but I love them all. Like her other books, Finding Amyfollows the S erafino format. My major characters are always women. I write about courag eous women. Im familiar with their point of view. Finding Amy,she says, was a true labor of love and was,in part,based on fact. I l oved the story,the characters,the outcomes,even though at the start of the b ook I never expected the end that came about. The b ook took more time than any of my other novels,with a lot more research to be done with this book. Not that Im complaining. I love r esearching because its kind of like going back to school. You learn so much more than you ever need to. Research,she says, means learning about what you dont know.The comp uter is a wonderful source. Or say you need some medi cal information. I find some nurse friends to talk to. Sometimes I want the plot to go in a certain direction but the research says no. I have t o change my plot to accommodate the research. Serafino said people often ask her how she gets her ideas. Its my what ifsyndrome. Something will come to my attention and Ill say, What if that happened to me? How would I handle it? What would be important? And thats how I begin. How did she come up with the idea for Finding Amy? Something triggered me to the subject of children who run away. I didnt want someone who becomes a street person. I wanted a confused,only child who never knew her father and who wanted to express herself. She had just graduated high school,was a talented artist and planned on going to art school. She originally intended to come back home but circumstances change. How does she know if her writing is good or bad? I know somethings good if I like it myself. If I like it, I know my readers will like it. I know its bad if theres no flow. Flow means you come to the end of a chapter and you cant wait to start the next one. If it doesnt flow,youre fooling yourself if you dont change it. In my book,Secrets,I got to Chapter 21 and realized my male character was wrong and the plot was going in the wrong direction. He was too nice. He had to be much nastier. I had to rewrite every chapter. Except for her memoir, called Following Daddy, all of Serafinos books are novels. Those are my real love but sometimes I write short stories for a challenge and submit them to a writing contest. This way you learn how to tighten up your writing,to say it in fewer words. It makes much more of an impact. But they are more than just novels.Shes first and foremost a writer of Christian fiction,which means,no bad language, not overly violent,no explicit sex. Theres mention of God,but it doesnt have to be preachy. Its clean reading. And Christian writing has almost as many facets as other types of fiction,like historical fiction,action,suspense,romance,contemporary,young adult,childrens, with all types reflecting the theme of faith. Finding Amy,by the way,is categorized by the publisher as contemporary fiction. Not surprisingly,Serafino was an avid reader and writer as a youngster. I read even before starting school and in school I would often get extra credit for doing writing projects. Later,when I was working as a secretary,my bosses would tell me to go ahead and write their letters for them. But it was not until she retired and married her husband,Lenny,that she could find time to pursue her passion for writing and teaching. I try to write every day. Each novel,on the average, takes me eight or nine months to complete. Along with burning the midnight oil at her computer keyboard,Serafino leads a weekly writing critique group,at times teaches creative writing at South Florida Community College, leads a class on memoir writing,and is a professional speaker through Toastmasters. In the brief time shes been writing,Serafino has won five literary awards:one from the National League of American Pen Women and four from the Florida Writers Assocations Royal Palm Literary Award,including two in 2011 for Finding Amy,one as first place in Womens Fiction (then unpublished) and one as Book of the Year (then unpublished). Speaking of awards, Serafino was once asked on an authorswebsite,Is a story or a book special if it receives an award?She answered,Perhaps,but I like to think it was special because it reached the heart and soul of the reader; that there was something real, unique or compelling about the story and the characters which made it special. Finding Amyis available through the publisher (doubleedgepress.com),amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com,and on Kindle.

And thats how I beginSUNNYSERAFINO local author The Associated PressYou may not aspire to the culinary theatrics performed by the wizards of modernist cuisine transparent ravioli? edible balloons? but your cooking probably still could benefit from a few lessons from their labs. And learning those lessons will get a lot easier this fall when food science becomes far more homefriendly. Riding the buzz of science-driven cooking shows and hot modernist chefs like Ferran Adria and Grant Achatz,publishers are releasing two books this fall that demystify the secrets of e veryday food science,such as searing meat,scrambling e ggs and measuring flour. The Science of Good Cooking,from the test kitchens of Cooks Illustrated magazine,joins f ifty basic concepts why salt makes meat juicy,why high heat develops flavor with 400 recipes that show you how to put those principles into practice. Meanwhile,Modernist Cuisine at Home,from the laboratory that produced Modernist Cuisine,a sixv olume encyclopedia of molecular gastronomy released last year,promises a bit more flair,urging home cooks to turn their blowtorches and meat injectors on comfy fare such as cheeseburgers and roast chicken. It used to be this obscure geeky thing,to talk about food science,says Jack Bishop,editorial director of Americas Test Kitchen, which publishes Cooks Illustrated. But now people see theres a real connection between that and the kind of cooking they do at home. Bishops goal is to harness this interest to create better cooks by putting the whybehind the how. Older,more experienced cooks may be using proper technique,but may have no idea why it works or where it comes from,he says. For young people,who may not have grown up watching someone cook,the concrete explanations will provide a foundation. Somebody whos been cooking a lifetime,like your grandmother,might have internalized these concepts and might have known intuitively that a roast will continue to cook when it comes out of the oven,he says. It helps you draw those connections that you might not intuitively see unless youve been cooking for 30 years. The book offers practical takeaways,like sidebars with small tips (a skillet works better than a wok for stir-fries) and techniques (sprinkle sugar on wet fish to encourage browning). Charts for cooking a roast thats truly rare or for how much your cup of flour should weigh also provide easy references. But if the levelheaded Yankees at the Boston-based test kitchen seek to educate, Modernist Cuisine at Homeauthor Nathan Myhrvold wants to titillate. He would have you turn your blowtorch on a steak or cook scrambled eggs sous vide,then deliver them as f anciful dollops through a whipping canister. Were living in a very exciting time for cooking because all these things are possible,Myhrvold says. And not just in a professional kitchen,which admittedly is where so-called modernist cuisine earned its credibility (as well as a fair amount of derision). Much of the equipment called for pressure cookers,meat tenderizers,whipping canisters is available in shopping malls or on the Internet. And many of the techniques are simple, Myhrvold says. And they produce better food. New books offer to bring the food science lab home Get the paper delivered to you! NEWS-SUN-6155

C M Y K ARA ContentSummer days do not have to be lazy. Children may be used to action-packed schedules in school,but by stepping up their planning,families can enjoy outdoor activities that are engaging and help keep children active. Whether camping or simply exploring the park down the street,its important to plan ahead for summer fun,especially when it comes to sun protection. Alison Sweeney,host of NBCs The Biggest Loser and mother of two,says family routines do not have to be complicated.Sweeney has four practical tips for families as they gear up for outdoor fun this summer: Develop a sun-safe program for your family. Just like brushing your teeth before you go to bed,its important to teach your children to practice the proper sun safety habits before heading outside for some time in the sun. Any good routine includes the use of essentials such as broad spectrum sunscreen,sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat. Time flies when you are enjoying the outdoors, but be sure you are making time to reapply sunscreen. Look for some new sun protection options that help simplify reapplication so that you can get back to having fun with your family more easily. I make sure we reapply every two hours or after towel drying,swimming or sweating,says Sweeney. My children love to be in the water. Choose the right sunscreen for your activities. Its so important to find a sunscreen that can keep up with the activities you have planned for the day,says Sweeney. Know when to break. Its important to take breaks and get out of the sun for a while,especially on hot days and between the peak sun hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. When its time to grab a snack with the family,find some shade and relax. For more summertime fun, Coppertone is teaming up with Sweeney to help find the next Little Miss Coppertone through Facebook. Parents and guardians can enter photos of their little girls ages 27 at www.facebook.com/ coppertone. Summer is almost here and we are already dealing with the uncomfortable s ting of mosquitoes. First of all,know that the males arent the enemy here; its the female who s ucks your blood. She must acquire the precious liquid to develop fertile eggs to make even more m osquitoes to bother us. And according to Jerry Butler,PhD,professor emeri tus at the University of Florida,One in 10 people are highly attractive to mosq uitoes.Who are these unfortunate folks that make u p the 1 percent? Studies have shown that people with certain genes are m ore attractive to mosquitoes than others. Mosquitoes a re apparently attracted to certain elements of body chemistry. According to Butler,People with high concentrations of steroids or c holesterol on their skin surface attract mosquitoes. That d oesnt necessarily mean that mosquitoes prey on people with higher overall levels o f cholesterol. These people simply may be more effic ient at processing cholesterol,the byproducts of which remain on the skins s urface. Entomologist John Edman, PhD states that,Mosquitoes also target people who produce excess amounts of cert ain acids,such as uric acid. These substances can trigger mosquitoes' sense of smell, luring them to land on unsuspecting victims. But t he process of attraction begins long before the landi ng. Mosquitoes can smell their dinner from an impress ive distance of up to 50 meters. This doesn't bode well for people who emit large quantities of carbon dioxide. Joe Conlon,PhD,technical advisor to the American Mosquito Control Association explains,Any type of carbon dioxide is a ttractive,even over a long distance. Larger people tend to give off more carbon dioxide,which is why mosquitoes typically prefer munching on adults to small children. Pregnant women are also at increased risk,as they produce a greater-than-normal amount of exhaled carbon dioxide. Movement and heat also attract mosquitoes. Whether you are one of the unfortunate one in ten or not,these pesky creatures are not going to go away. Mosquitoes are believed to have evolved around 170 million years ago with the earliest known fossils from 65-144 million years ago. Some ancestral mosquitoes were about three times the size of the present pests. F or the mosquito to complete its lifecycle,water is a necessary element. And we all know that there is an abundance of water in our state. Many species of mosquitoes lay their eggs on the w aters surface. The eggs may hatch within 24 to 48 hours. Once hatched,the larvae move up and down from the surface of the water. The larvae feed on microorganisms and organic material found in the water. About a week after hatching,the larvae change into the pupal stage. Once the female mosquito vacates her watery home,she begins to seek out a blood source. Once she has gorged on blood,she lays from 100 to 300 eggs. Each female may average 1,000 to 3,000 eggs within her short lifetime. The average life span of the female mosquito is from 3-100 days; the males is 10-20 days. There are about 200 species of mosquitoes in the United States and more than 2,500 worldwide. Their bodies are divided into three parts (head,thorax and abdomen) a hard exoskeleton,and six long,jointed legs. The mosquitos head is mostly eye. Each eye is made up of many tiny lenses forming two compound eyes. This type of eye allows for a very broad field of vision that easily detects movement. In addition,they have a straw-like proboscis and can only consume liquids. For the most part,mosquitoes do not venture far from home. They are not particularly strong flyers and generally travel at speeds of approximately one to one and a half miles per hour. Most mosquitoes remain within one mile of their breeding site. However,if carried by strong wind or if the female is seeking out a blood meal,the mosquito can travel further distances. They fly mostly in the cooler hours of the morning and e venings,preferring to stay in a cool place in the heat of the day. Because we do have the facts about these pesky creatures,there is much we can do to avoid their bite: Wear long pants and sleeves,socks and shoes when outdoors. Wear loose clothes made of tightly woven materials that keep mosquitoes away from the skin. Follow the labels instructions if using repellent. Repair or replace old and torn screens around the house Since mosquitoes breed in stagnant water,and can do so even in very small quantities,remove any possible breeding areas where mosquitoes could lay eggs. Drill holes in the bottom of containers that must be left outdoors. Keep your swimming pool aerated,cleaned and chlorinated,even if it is not being used. Keep your gutters clean to prevent standing water. Check under shrubbery and lawn coverings for hidden containers. Use landscaping to eliminate water that collects in low areas on your property. Mosquitoes can develop in any puddle that lasts more than 7-10 days during the summer. Repair any leaks from outdoor water pipes,joints or hoses. Replace washers on outdoor taps that drip. By taking a few moments to prepare your home and yard from being a mosquito breeding ground,you will have a much better chance of enjoying your outdoor summertime activities. And remember,aquatic birds, frogs,beetles,water bugs and dragonflies eat mosquito larvae,so you might want to keep those critters around.

And while its not among the animation powerhouses best films from a storytelling perspective,it is undeniably beautiful. A mong its more appealing visual elements is the wild mane of long, red curls on the head of Scottish princess Merida. So that got me thinking about o ther famous movie redheads. There are so many to choose from but I only get to pick five. Sorry,Carrot T op.Katharine HepburnThe classic redhead,even though it may not have been obvious in her e arly,black-and-white movies. Hepburns hair along with those s harp cheekbones,bright eyes and tall,athletic frame gave her an aura of patrician bearing and strength. In color films,the red locks magnified her fiery persona, c ontributed to the sense that she was not a woman to be trifled with. And even in later films like 1981s On Golden Pond,when her tresses had faded a bit,she still exuded an air of irreverence and unpredictability.Nicole KidmanWe see her as a blonde sometimes:on the red carpet for the Oscars,for example,or in her upcoming movie The Paperboy, for which she bleached her locks platinum. She switched to a medium-brown shade for the biopic Fur:An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus.But for the most part, Kidmans raven hair is a key component of her signature,statuesque look. In early films like Dead Calmand Days of Thunder,the prodigious nature of her red curls signaled the presence of someone f ierce and formidable. But shes also smoothed them out and tamed them to a softer strawberry shade for movies including To Die For.Woody AllenThey cant all be women,right? Hes 76 now and the years have understandably grayed him,as evidenced this week as he appears on screen in his latest movie,the ensemble comedy To Rome With Love.But in his earliest films,like 1971s Bananasand 1977s Annie Hall,the shaggy red hair combined with the eyeglasses,the demeanor and the delivery to create his trademark,neurotic persona. While red hair can seem so exciting on women,Allens contributed to the sensation that he was an underdog,someone you always want to root for to get out of a predicament or fall in love. Emma StoneA redhead on the rise. Yes,shes back to her natural blonde hair for her latest role as Gwen Stacy in next months The Amazing SpiderMan.But in the movies that put her on the map Superbad, Zombielandand especially Easy A,the high school comedy that made it clear shes destined for superstardom her red hair adds to her sly,subversive allure. More mature roles came along last year in two big movies:The Helpand Crazy Stupid Love.Her entire vibe suggests that shed just be a cool chick to hang out with,and a lot of that has to do with the intriguing contrast of her dark red hair and bright green eyes.Jessica RabbitOK,this is a bit of a cheat. So maybe shes not a realperson (although shes inspired countless real fantasies,not to mention naughty Halloween costumes). But I have to admit then when I started pondering the notion of movie redheads,this cartoon characters name is the first one that popped into my head. The femme fatale from Robert Zemeckis1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit,a groundbreaking mix of live-action and animation, simply oozes sex appeal,especially as voiced by Kathleen Turner. Crucial to her look is her long mane of wavy,red tresses,which cascade down all the right places on her curvy frame. Think of any other examples?

C M Y K By LEANNE ITALIE Associated PressN EW YORK Hey,Mr. Mom. Whats up,Workaholic? Whether they say it out loud or acknowledge it at all, t hat work-home divide traditionally reserved for the Mommy Wars can also rear between dads who go off to the office every day and the k ind in the trenches with the kids. There are bound to be rifts,given the growing league of dads staying home at least part-time. But do the p aths of work dads and home dads intertwine e nough to make them care quite so deeply as the ladies? How exactly are they perc eived,not by researchers or journalists,but by each o ther? To be a stay-at-home dad requires a lot of confidence in who you are,said Paxton Helms,41,in Washington, D .C. He became one about four y ears ago,when his daughter was 3 months old. A son followed and he now takes partt ime contracts as an international development consulta nt,with flexible hours. His wife also works part-time. The strangest thing that ever happened to me as a (stay-at-home dad) was riding on the Metro with both m y kids and a guy asking me,So wheres Mom?I c ouldnt even think why in the world somebody would be asking me that question, so I couldnt even muster an answer,he said.Suspicion over wives, layoffsOther at-home dads worry a bout jealousy from working brethren (What are they reall y thinking about all that time spent with the women?). Or suspicion that theyre out of work. And dads on both sides of the d ivide report the occasional cold shoulder. It seems that they try to avoid me or dont want to talk about what life is like f or them,said dad-of-one Donald DeLong,55,a Bloomfield Township,Mich., attorney who acknowledges a deeply rooted need to work and earn a living. When I do talk to them, the topics stay guy-safe. That is,sports,cars. After all were both still guys. We dont talk about that sensitive touchy-feely stuff. Other at-home dads,those by choice or pushed out of the job market,said theyve endured some snark,but they consider it more of a dad-ondad discomfort than a serious divide. Martin Weckerlein,33,is among them. He simply doesnt have the time to care. He was a tank commander in the Germany military,then a bank worker for six years before he gave it up to be an at-home for his three kids,ages 8,3 and 9 months. The family lives in suburban Washington,D.C., where his wife has a government job. When Im with other dads who are my age, whether they work or stay at home,they tend to be pretty accepting and even curious as to how that works that we can afford me staying home, what I do during the day with the kids,and they say it must be nice to have that time,he said. When I am talking with men who arent fathers or who are older,their questions usually focus on what my career goals are after I am done being home with my kids. They seem to assume this is only a temporary thing for our family,a pause in my career for a few years,instead of an investment in our family, W eckerlein explained.The stereotypesYes,Mr. Mom comes up, the newest iteration in the shape of Chris Rock and his goofy band of dads with infants strapped to their chests in the movie What to Expect When Youre Expecting. Its been nearly 30 years since Michael Keaton was that guy on screen,setting the kitchen on fire and making his kids miserable in Mr. Mom,but the lingering moniker feels more like yesterday for Weckerlein and other at-home dads. I hate that phrase,Mr. Mom. I cant imagine my wife going into the office and saying,Hi everyone, its Mrs. Dad,said Dan Zevin,a humorist,at-home dad to two and author of a new book,Dan Gets a Minivan:Life at the Intersection of Dude and Dad. In Boston,32-year-old Nolan Kido is no stereotype. Hes the exhausted at-home dad of an 11-week-old daughter as his wife completes her dental education. He deferred work on his doctoral degree in accounting after doing some recession-era math:his earning power versus her earning power in the face of more than $360,000 in student loans. At the very beginning they were a little weirded out,like what do we talk about,whats the common themes,but now the impression that I get more is actually jealousy,he said of his working dad friends. Its not,like,mean kinds of things but just,Oh,I wish I could stay homeor Oh,Id love to go to that park. The number of at-home dads who are primary caregivers for their children reached nearly 2 million in 2010,or one in 15 fathers, according to one estimate. Al Watts,president of the National At-Home Dad Network,believes a more accurate count is about 7 million,using broader definitions that include part-time workers. That amounts to one-third of married fathers in the U.S. Most,he said, want to be there,as opposed to the kind who never thought about it until the ax fell on their careers. And more often than women,they do earn a bit of income at the same time,he said.Could they do it?Watts,in Omaha,has been home with kids for a decade, since the oldest of his four was a baby. He sees a subtle shift in attitudes emanating from working dads. Eight years ago,one of my wifes customers,when he found out that I was an at-home dad he said,Oh you know,Id really love to do that.I knew what he really meant was that he assumed he could then just hang out at home and play video games and watch TV and not have to go to work anymore,Watts said. Now when I have those conversations,theyre generally like,You know,I really wish I could do that. But then they find out I have four kids and theyre like, Well,I couldnt do that! The raised eyebrows, pregnant pauses and need to hide their real interests shopping,crossing guard duty,laundry for more generic work-dad friendly fare is tedious sometimes for Trey Parker,32,in the Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta. With a full-time working wife and two boys,ages 2 and 9 months to care for,a trip to Costco holds more allure than last nights game or chatter about sales quotas. Its a little harder to speak with guys who are corporate dads,Parker said. At Christmas parties and stuff like that,theres absolutely nothing in common with them. Theyre either talking about sports or whatever sales or whatnot they have going on at the office,and you cant comment on any of that stuff. Youre naturally drawn to the women because theyre talking about the kids and the family. Weckerlein wasnt used to the idea that wanting to stay home with the kids was something other than perfectly natural:Its kind of surprising that this is really a big deal because in the 21st century I thought we could think a little bit different. But yes,I get that Mr. Mom. There wont be any of that from 41-year-old Marty Guise in St. Louis,but he does feel the distance. He has a full-time job and a part-time one to pay the bills. The consultant for nonprofit organizations has two kids,ages 13 and 11. His wife quit her teaching job to be home but now works as a substitute. What do you do for a living?is a pretty common ice breaker,he said. When a man tells me that he stays at home,its usually preceded by or followed quickly with a justification,like I lost my job. I receive that as a defense for staying at home. Right or wrong,men like to be the breadwinners. He quickly adds:I think its devaluing of men or women to say that staying at home is any less important than working 40-plus hours a week.Whats it like changing diapers?Do you miss having a real job? Tony Reynolds,47 and at-home dad for 11 years, has heard it all since a downsize at a large insurance company solidified his decision to be home in suburban Columbus,Ohio,with his two youngest boys from a second marriage. The other dads make snide comments or ask bizarre questions sometimes,he said. I say it IS a real job and I bet you couldnt do it.

Beach Longley, owner and grillmaster of Beachs Barbeque and C atering, has a unique story that began nearly a decade ago as he and his family were preparing for the n uptials of his oldest daughter LaToya. In 2003, my daughter was looking for a wedding caterer. I was looking for someone I could afford and somet hing that they wanted but we couldnt find anyone. So I just asked Well w hat do they want?, Longley said. Longley took it upon himself to provide the wedding reception meals for his daughter and son-n-law in September of 2003. The food was a h it. Longley had found a new niche and acted on his new-found passion. After that I was living over in Indiantown for a few years. Over there, I was still working so me and a f riend would cook together and I sold meals on Fridays in the parking lot at w ork, Longley said. Longley worked for decades in law enforcement following his exit from t he United States military before retiring from work last June. Beachs BBQ has been Longleys priority (just behind getting his last two kids through college) for a while n ow, and he thoroughly enjoys his work. Longleys mobile kitchen was first parked in Avon Park, but he has since relocated his barbecue joint to S ebring. Ive been here in this spot since t he first week in February, said Longley. Im here every weekend. Longley parks his trailer fit with grill, smoker and kitchen adjacent to the Pier 1 Imports parking lot every Friday and Saturday. A friend of Longleys, owner of the Jewelry Box shop, allows him to set up shop there each weekend. Longley is able to provide meals for one stomach or hundreds. He splits his time between serving up mouth-watering plates for quick lunches and dishing out huge helpings to a room full of guests. I do a lot of catering. The past two months Ive done three birthday parties, two weddings and a retirement party, said Longley. The recent retirement party has become one of Longleys biggest jobs yet.

Beachs is the new mobile restuarant in the area serving up tasty bbq and sides for customers. Ill wager that when most brides and grooms utter the phrase, For better or for worse, the worse theyre imagining probably involves situations like getting laid off or a prolonged family illness not being the victim of tax fraud perpetrated by a current or former spouse. Married couples typically file joint tax returns because it lets them take advantage of certain tax credits and other benefits not available if they file separately. However, one potential drawback is that you're each responsible, jointly and individually, for any taxes, interest and penalties due on returns filed while you're married, even if you later divorce. So what happens if your spouse or ex-spouse either unintentionally or deliberately underreported income, overstated deductions, didnt report taxable IRAdistributions or any of a host of other sins in the eyes of the IRS? Well, you could be left holding the bag, even if those things occurred without your knowledge or understanding. Thats why each year tens of thousands of people file for Innocent Spouse Relief with the IRS. Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to prove your case and many are denied. Plus, until recently, the law mandated that in all cases you must have applied for relief within two years of the IRS first collection activity or your claim would be disqualified. But in one respect at least, the IRS has eased the burden of proof: Last year, the agency eliminated the twoyear requirement for taxpayers filing for equitable relief, a category open to taxpayers who don't meet the strict requirements of other provisions in the Innocent Spouse law. The IRSchange of policy recognized that in some cases, the victimized spouse doesnt even become aware of the transgression until long after the fact. Often its because the offending spouse has concealed the information or hid or did not forward mailed underpayment notifications from the IRS or, in the case of domestic abuse, the victim was afraid to come forward.

Iused 200 pounds of chicken, 300 pounds of ribs. I started prepping for that job the night before. I started cooking at 7 a.m. that morning and everything w as done around 5 (p.m.), Longley said. Though Longley tackled the Brooksville retirement cater on his own, his day-to-day operat ions of the barbecue joint are rarely done solo. My wife helps me out. I cook and she serves and helps the customers. Now that my youngest daughter Jasmine is out of school f or the summer she is here helping us and my son B.J. helps out w hen he gets here too, Longley explained. The business has been good a nd each day is different, but Longley doesnt mind. The cook m akes his adjustments as he sees fit. Ive been serving a lot more sandwiches and ribs here, so weve cut back on the chicken f or right now, but we can bring it back. We have plenty of sides to g o along with the meals, said Longley. I just enjoy it. I really do. I t old Ann (wife) that if I can make back what I put into it then Im h appy. People have seemed to enjoy my cooking. I experimented with it for years before it got b etter at it; they like it. I mix my own seasonings I make my own sauce. People have been saying I should market (the sauce) but I dont want to do that. I dont want to get that big, Longley said with a laugh. Longley uses a number of techniques in his cooking but prefers the low and slow technique over traditional smoking most times. Longleys ribs, chicken, pulled pork and brisket are the main meats. Sides vary from collard greens, mac and cheese, green beans, potato salad, cole slaw and more along with a sweet potato casserole for the dessert lovers. The reasonably cheap prices are sure to keep customers coming back. I do this because I love it. Its nice to do what you want with no one looking over your shoulder, punching a clock or being told what to do. I enjoy this, I like to cook for people, said Longley.

The airline also gave ground on o ther areas including pay, where it is now offering slight increases. American disclosed the changes shortly after a federal judge granted a one-week delay in ruling on Americans request to throw out existing labor contracts. The judges decision gives the pilotsunion more time to consider Americans final offer. It also could help American regain the upper hand in its attempt to emerge from bankruptcy as a stand-alone company. US Airways Group Inc. wants to buy American parent AMR Corp. out of bankruptcy and has lined up support from Americans three unions, which represent pilots, flight attendants and ground workers. The unions have disparaged AMRs turnaround plan as lacking a strategy to boost revenue. The leaders of Americans unions and top executives at US Airways argue that the two carriers must combine to compete against United and Delta.

The differences b etween them (including eligibility, deadlines and statutes of limitations) are complicated, so read Tax Information for Innocent S pouses at www.irs.gov for details. To apply for Innocent Spouse Relief, youll need to file IRS Form 8857; howeve r, one form will work for multiple yearsfilings. Dont delay filing just because you dont have all required supporting documentation, since in some cases the two-year filing deadline does still apply. In making its ruling, the IRS will consider factors such as your educational and business experience, the couples financial situation and the extent of your participation in the action that resulted in the erroneous item. The IRS will deny a claim if they believe you benefitted from the tax avoidance. Taxpayers whose past request for equitable relief was denied solely because of the two-year limit may reapply using IRS Form 8857 if the collection statute of limitations for the tax years involved has not expired. V isit Tax Information for Innocent Spouses at www.irs.gov for details on the various types of relief available, eligibility qualifications, statutes of limitations and more. I hope that your marital worst case never goes past a minor spat or two, but its good to know there is relief available for such terrible situations.

Millions of homeowners all across the c ountry are finding themselves over-leveraged (owing more than the home is worth) on their properties, some with two, even three, mortgages. These homeowners are struggling to stay afloat f inancially and are facing foreclosure. The Elliott Team of R e/Max Realty Plus specializes in short sales and is excited to announce their p artnership with The Law O ffice of Clifford R. R hoades, P.A. to expedite and simplify the process for everyone involved. Ashort sale is one of the most complicated transact ions in real estate and experience is everything, said Norman Elliott. It was only logical that it was in the best interest of our clients to partner with Cliff Rhoades office. Not only will they get o ur real estate expertise, they w ill get professional negotiators working full time, just for them AND attorney representation in the sale. If you needed open-heart surgery, you wouldn't go to a jack of all trades, you would visit a heart specialist. It's the same thing in a real estate transaction. Especially one as complicated as a short sale. Clifford R. Rhoades and his full-time staff which include paralegals, processors, and full-time short sale negotiators have reduced the short sale process down to a science & have perfected the process through years of short sale negotiations. Surrendering a home worth half of what you owe is not a failure, its a decision. Ashort sale is an opportunity for you and your family to take control and walk away free and clear. Nobody wants to lose their home; however, few loan modifications work and there is no need to go down with a sinking ship. Homeowners need to know when to say enough is enough, attorney Clifford R Rhoades said. Not to mention, a short sale is less detrimental to your credit history and easier to recover from than a foreclosure. Most short sale sellers can qualify for another home loan just 24-36 months after a successful short sale. Although obtaining a short sale approval can be a complicated and lengthy process, short sales are better than a foreclosure for everyone: The homeowner, the banks and the communities as C.D. Boring, Broker of Re/Max Realty Plus, said, Distressed homeowners can transition from a home they can no longer afford more easily through a short sale. Short sales are better for banks because they yield more revenue for banks than foreclosures. Short sales are also better for communities. The homes stay occupied since they go from homeowner to homeowner, and the average selling price for a short sale home is higher than for a foreclosed home, which helps stabilize the neighborhoods home values. In addition to successfully negotiating and closing short sales, The Elliott Team, with the help of Clifford R. Rhoades law office, has been able to negotiate a full release of liability for most of their sellers. This means the bank is actually not requiring the homeowner to repay the deficiency. They are agreeing not to pursue the homeowner for the balance of their loan. The Elliott team has realized it takes more then a real estate agent to properly work a short sale, said Laura Vega of Clifford R Rhoades office, and we are thrilled to offer our services in conjunction with their already successful short sale business, to allow them more time to help more homeowners in need!

Both sides said they were moving toward a deal on how to pay the measures $6 billion price tag, the chief source of partisan conflict. The goal is to push legislation through Congress next week so that the current 3.4 percent interest rate on subsidized Stafford loans can be preserved for another year. A 2007 law gradually reduced interest rates on the loans but required them to balloon back to 6.8 percent this July 1 in a cost-saving maneuver. On another front, the two sides were also close to an agreement to overhaul federal transportation programs, according to House and Senate aides from both parties. Hill bargainers: Student loan deal seems near DETROIT(AP) Engine fires are forcing General Motors to recall the Chevy Cruze, a popular model that has helped GM win back small-car buyers. The recall covers 475,000 vehicles made in the U.S. from September of 2010 through May of 2012. The fires can break out when fluids drip onto a hot plastic shield below the engine. The problem occurs mainly when oil is spilled and not properly cleaned up during changes, General Motors said Friday. The company knows of 30 fires caused by the problem, but no injuries have been reported, spokesman Alan Adler said. Flames engulfed and destroyed cars in two cases reported to federal safety officials. GM will notify Cruze owners about when to bring their cars to local dealers for free repairs.

C M Y K So LeBron James and the Miami Heat won the NBAChampionship Thursday night, in convincing fashion over the young Oklahoma City Thunder. This nets the team its second title and James his first. James was spectacular, no doubt, and the television ratings for the series showed that this was must-see TV. But Id be curiousas to what happened to the ratings from, say, the midthird quarter on of the final game. Once the Heat blew it open and had the 20+ point lead late in the third, to be honest, I lost interest, changed channels and only found out the final score later. The next morning, my usual staple programs to watch, Mike and Mike in the Morning and First Take, were purposely avoided. Again, while not taking anything away from the Miami squad, I just had had enough and knew that those programs were going to be wall-to-wall Heat. Much like the complaints in recent years of how ESPN would talk non-stop about the likes of Brett Favre and Tim Tebow, so too have the last two seasons been a bit of overkill about Miami, James and the Big Three. It drove ratings, sure, as much of America reveled in the hopes of seeing them fail. But Thursday night, once their goal of producing a championship was virtually assured, I get the feeling that that segment of the viewing audience tuned out. The drama was in the villainy of it all. Three mega-talents coming together to form the Big Three that had pundits gushing as to how great they could be which only made nonHeat fans that much more hoping for it to fall apart. James calling a televised news conference to inform his hometown team and fans that he was leaving them which turned that many more fans against him and his new team. When Dwyane Wade and James mocked Dirk Nowitzkis illness during last yearsfinals, it only added to them being cast as the bad guys and had that portion of the viewing population tuning it all the more to see them get beat. And this year, with Derrick Rose going down and sealing the Bulls fate, the Heat seemed to have a much easier path to that title they came together f or. But Indiana gave them a bit more resistance than expected, Boston pushed them to the brink and the ratings jumped. Then came the series with what many would call the anti-Heat, Oklahoma City. Assembled more, lets say, organically and without nearly the fanfare or media attention Kevin Durant, when faced with the opportunity to explore free agency, opted to stay and did so with a mere mention along the press wires. Extremely talented and younger than Miami, the Thunder were going to be the foils and halt the Heat in their tracks. But they didnt. Much like Miami last year, and for countless teams before them, before By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK The gloomy weather was not enough to dampen the spirits of countless dedicated Sertoma Junior Golf Tour participants Thursday morning as they teed off for the tours second event of the s eason held at the Pinecrest on Lotela Golf Club. Sweeping the 14-18 Girls division for the second week i na row was Kendall Griffin with a score of 79. Griffin shot a 76 to win the g roup in last weeks season opener at Harder Hall. I was playing well, she said. Up until the last five holes. Which brought her back to the back a bit, but not enough to lose the lead. Griffin was followed by Savana Fisher with an 83, Lindsey Moffat with a 91 and Chloe Nelson trailing just one stroke behind for fourth. For the Boys 17-18 group, Daniel Miller bounced back from last weeks second-place finish to card an 80 for first place while Will Bennett came in a close second at 83, moving up from last weeks tie for third. Following them would be Jonah Brown and William Beattie who tied with a score of 88. Cole Bergers score of 76 was one over his 75 of last week and won the 15-16 division again this week, while Ben Tubbs moved up from sixth to take second and Jeremy Camino finished third with rounds of 80 and SPORTS D SECTION Inside This Section Ozzie fuming . . .3D Cleveland moves on . . .3D LeMans fuel . . .5D Miller debates options . . .6D News-Sun Sunday, June 24, 2012 And Another Thing...

KENDALLGRIFFIN Special to the News-SunFor the first time ever, Highlands Youth Football and Cheer (HYFC) offered a spring cheerleading camp free for ages 5-14 years old at the Highlands County Sports Complex. The camp began on May 21, consisting of three-day-aweek practices and ended on Friday, June 8. Chrissi Merrick, Cheer Director for HYFC, coordinated the event with the sole purpose to introduce all the players and cheerleaders to each other and their coaches, as well as provide other girls not associated with the Eagles the opportunity to learn some cheers, stunts and most of all to have fun. The main goal of the camp was to teach some basic cheer skills, learn cheers and do some stunts with the older group of girls. The most important value of having this camp was to give the cheerleaders and coaches an opportunity to begin to develop a relationship with their teammates and coaches. Meeting their teammates gives them an opportunity to become friends and know one another when they may see each other during the summer before the season begins. The turnout of the camp was a great success, with approximately 60 cheerleaders on the fields. I love being a cheerleader and I had a great time said Flag Cheerleader Abby Moore. I am so happy we did a camp, I love cheering added Bryona Merrick, Mitey Mite Cheerleader. Katie Forman, parent of a first-time cheerleader stated, the camp was great and my daughter learned a lot for her first time cheering. I must say this is a great league for holding this great cheer camp and doing it for free, it was like giving back to the community and the best part is you were not required to sign your child up for the season, parent Melissa Walsh said. The Coaches and Cheer director worked really hard to make this possible and I would like to say Thank you for all you do for these kids. I think the spring cheer camp for the Highlands Eagles was a big hit, Cheer Director Chrissi Merrick said. We had a large amount of girls attend the camp and they all learned 10 cheers. The girls got to make a new group of friends and really enjoyed the cheering. Camp wrapped up on Thursday, June 8 at the Highlands County YMCA due to the rain. Each squad got the opportunity to show off what they had learned by doing cheers and stunts for the parents and family. Each participant was given an award certificate and treated to Pizza by the Cheer Coaching Staff. HYF would like to extend their appreciation and a special Thank You to the YMCAfor allowing us to use your facility at the last minute. All of the HYFC Board of Directors and Cheer Coaching staff would like to thank all of the camp participants and would also like to thank the parents for your continued support. Youth sports would not be possible without the helping hands of the parents and the community as a whole. I am going to miss my girls and can't wait for the fall season to begin said Roxanne Meixner, Flag Head Cheer Coach. I think the camp was great and the kids in each squad really had a lot of fun. This camp represents the first step in what HYFC feels will be a successful cheer season. It has often been said Success is not how successful on person becomes, but how successful we make others. Cheer Registration is still available for the fall season that begins on Monday, July 9 for all divisions Mitey Mite, Pee Wee, Junior Varsity and Varsity with the exception of Flag Cheer. This squad is full and will not be accepting any more registrations. If you are interested in registering, please visit our website at www.highlandseagles.com click the registration tab and submit your application online. Registration fee is $75 and must be paid in full byMonday, July 9.

See STORY, Page 5D By BRIAN MAHONEY Associated PressMIAMI Workout partners, NBAFinals foes, and in a few weeks, Olympic teammates. LeBron James and Kevin Durant were together from the delayed start to the quick finish of this shortened NBA season, sharing a lengthy embrace moments after Jameschampionship chase was finally complete. Humbled last year in his first attempt in Miami, James allowed himself only a couple of weeks off before returning to the gym. He invited Durant to join him, not realizing they would be on a much bigger stage than his Ohio home so quickly. I envisioned it, but I didnt know it was going to happen, James said. But to see a few months later that we was going to meet each other in the finals, it was a great moment for myself and for him. Get used to it. The Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder are likely to be back here again, perhaps as soon as next season, when James gets to see how it feels to defend a title and Durant inherits his role as the best player without one. You know, this is not the last time well see the Oklahoma City, James said. I wouldnt be surprised this wont be the last time we see them in the finals. The Heat were too good in this one, finishing off the Thunder with a 121-106 victory in Game 5 on Thursday night. James had 26 points, 11 A short NBA Finals, perhaps a long rivalry See RIVALS, Page 6D This wont be the last time we see them in the finals. LEBRONJAMES

C M Y K By TOM WITHERS Associated PressCLEVELAND On the same sidewalk where fans torched a LeBron James jersey in protest two summers ago, office workers on their lunch hours passed gamblers headed to the new downtown casino. Just another summer day. While James was in Miami celebrating his first NBA title, fans in the city he scorned to chase a championship had a much more subdued, internal reaction. There were no angry protests, no public outrage, no threats of harm. Those days have long past. The king got his ring. And Cleveland, where sports despairs roots have grown for generations, seemed to sigh in acceptance. In a way Im kind of happy for him, bartender Natalie Hardik said between serving pints of beer at Flannerys, an Irish bar and restaurant across the street from Quicken Loans Arena, where James once starred. But I definitely still feel a lot of bitterness toward him everyone does. This city, yearning to celebrate its first pro sport championship since 1964, hasnt forgiven James for leaving as a free agent in 2010. Many cant let it go. Theres lingering pain and resentment, but theres also a sense that its time to move on. Some Clevelanders already had. I hope they have moved on, and I kind of felt many fans had come to accept this would happen during the season, said TVsports anchor Jim Donovan, a longtime Cleveland resident. Fans felt him winning it all was inevitable, and I think some of them may have given up because its exhausting to root against the guy. Its better to root for your team. Cleveland reveled in seeing James fail in last years finals. This time, there was no stopping him. And the sight of James, who grew up in nearby Akron and spent seven seasons with the Cavaliers, hugging and and hoisting a championship trophy was tough to stomach. I had mixed feelings, said Mike Kubinski, who watched Thursdays Game 5 at home in Clevelands Tremont district. Its a lot like when your ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend gets married. Its not fun. As he spoke, Kubinski stood just a few away from an outdoor clothing kiosk at Westlakes Crocker Park, where LyinKing T-shirts were sold after Jamesdeparture in 2010. Now, theres hardly a trace of James anywhere to be found in Cleveland, where his No. 23 jersey was once omnipresent and his likeness loomed above the city on a giant downtown billboard. LeWho? said Jimmy Pearl of Cleveland. He left. Outta sight, outta mind, my man. Coincidentally, at about the exact time James and the Miami Heat were dispatching the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night, a storm rumbled in across Lake Erie, its thunder and lightning providing the perfect backdrop for another dark moment in Cleveland sports history. During the game, softball players at the Ironwood Cafe in Westlake glared at flat screen TVs showing the Heat leading by 25 points in the third quarter. It was over, there would be no Game 6 and Jamescoronation as a champion couldnt be delayed any longer. At the Dive Bar downtown on West 6th Street, Hardik muted ABCs telecast and played music so fans didnt have to endure the sounds of James winning a title the sight was bad enough. This didnt hurt nearly as bad as Clevelands other well-known sports calamities like The Drive, The Fumble, Indians closer Jose Mesa blowing the save in Game 7 of the 1997 World Series or former Browns owner Art Modell packing up his beloved football franchise and moving to Baltimore. But it was still a punch in Clevelands collective gut. And as James danced on the sideline in the closing minutes and later smiled as confetti engulfed him and his teammates, Kubinski felt as if he was watching a wellrehearsed play. Hes always acting, Kubinski said of James. He always knows where the cameras are and when theyre on him. Not long after Jamesvictory, Twitter and other social media sites overflowed with negative comments directed at the three-time MVP. But Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, who accused James of quitting on the Cavs and promised his team would win a title before the so-called King didnt pile on. Great NBAseason, Gilbert posted on (at)cavsdan. Enjoyed playoffs. Congratulations to Miami & OKC for an exciting Finals. Back to work on next weeks promising Cavs draft. Instead of dwelling on James, many Cleveland fans are focusing on what appears to be a bright future for the Cavs. The team has the No. 4 overall pick in next weeks draft, four selections in the top 34 and hope to add some quality players to put around guard Kyrie Irving, the reigning rookie of the year. At last, its time to look forward, not back. I think people have moved on and are at peace with it, said Chuck Kyle, coach of high school football powerhouse Saint Ignatius. Its been two years since LeBron left. It hurt for a while, but now its time to forget it. While there are those who will never forgive him, Jam es has a sprinkling of supporters in Cleveland. My dad loves him, Darrin Cappy said of his 82year-old father, Bruno. Hed love LeBron no matter where he played. He loves to talk about LeBron, and I know thats all Im going to hear about all weekend. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, June 24, 2012Page 3D HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports june ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 2 2 1 1 8 8 DR.

Miami manager Ozzie Guillen is certain its not a psychiatrist. Jose Bautista homered and drove in three runs, Kelly Johnson also had three RBIs and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the skidding Marlins 125 on Friday night. Brett Lawrie had three hits and scored four times to help the Blue Jays end an eightgame losing streak to the M arlins, who own a 17-5 a dvantage in the series. Miami has lost five straight and 14 of 16 overall. Great players dont need a psychiatrist, Guillen said. I didnt see Pete Rose talking with any psychiatrist Paul Molitor or all those guys. T hey talked with nobody. The (bad) players are the ones that need the psychiatrist next to them. Last five years, you see a lot of this in baseball. When players fail, they need a doctor. When managers and coaches fail, they get rid of (them). Guillen, who played 16 seasons in the majors from 1985-2000, believes players have to help themselves. I was from an era in baseball when Budweiser and vodka took care of the psychiatric things, Guillen said. You fail, you get drunk and you come back the next day to see how good it feels. The psycho guys the doctors they never played this game. They never wore the uniform. They never came out of a slump. Theyre not used to it, so how are they going to help? Giancarlo Stanton, Omar Infante and Gaby Sanchez homered for the Marlins, but runs have been hard to come b y. Miami hasnt scored more than five in a game since a 76 win over San Francisco on May 25. Players are making excuses, Guillen said. They dont have the shrink when they go 4 for 4, they only need the shrink when they fail. I dont believe in that. Some people do. Good for them. If (a psychiatrist) really worked, I would need one now, he added. Ricky Romero (8-1) provided the Blue Jays with seven much-needed innings after Toronto placed three starters on the disabled list in the last week. Kyle Drabek was lost for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, and Drew Hutchison (elbow sprain) and Brandon Marrow (strained rib cage muscle) also went on the DL. Romero allowed four runs and struck out five. Ive been lucky, he said. The hitters have done their part every time Ive pitched it seems like. Lawrie led off the game with a triple down the rightfield line and scored on a groundout by Colby Rasmus. Bautista singled home Lawrie in the third, and Johnsons sacrifice fly scored Bautista. Toronto chased Anibal Sanchez (3-6) in the fourth after the right-hander walked in a run with the bases loaded, giving the Blue Jays a 4-0 lead. Two more runs scored in the inning, both charged to Sanchez. He gave up six runs, seven hits and four walks in 3 1-3 innings. I wanted to help the team, Sanchez said. I know the situation right now with the team. I just want to do the best I can, like I do every time. I wanted to help the team get out of the hole we are in right now. Stantons homer and an RBI single by Hanley Ramirez cut the lead to 6-2 before the Blue Jays scored five more in the sixth off Ryan Webb, keyed by a tworun double from J.P. Arencibia. Johnson and Rajai Davis each had an RBI single in the inning and Yunel Escobar drove in a run with Torontos third sacrifice fly. Bautistas 419-foot homer to left was his 23rd of the season and 11th in the past 18 games. Infantes two-run shot was his first since May 8. Sanchezs only other home run came on April 26. Nothings fair now, Stanton said. Thats pret ty much the story. Its either nothing, or one or the other. Weve got to turn it all at the same time. NOTES: The Blue Jays have made an adjustment in their starting rotation. RHP Jesse Chavez will start Sunday against Miami and RHPHenderson Alvarez will start Monday against Boston. ... Marlins CF Emilio Bonifacio (sprained left thumb) took 25 swings from the left side for the first time since his May 18 injury and did not have any pain. Although he would like to return sooner, Bonifacio is still expected to be out until after the All-Star break. ... ESPN basketball analyst Dick Vitale was in attendance. ...

Tour heads to two-day tourney this week By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Dwyane Wade played with knee pain throughout the playoffs. Hell soon know exactly what was causing that problem, and if it could keep him out of the London Olympics. One day after celebrating his second NBAchampionship, the Miami Heat guard told The Associated Press on Friday that he will soon have his ailing left knee examined, and acknowledges that surgery may be a possibility. Wade appeared in all 23 postseason games for Miami, averaging 22.8 points, and scored 20 in the title-clinching win for the Heat against Oklahoma City on Thursday night. Ive got to make a decision on what my knee needs and whats best, because my career and finishing my career strong is whats important to me, Wade said. And I know, yeah, the Olympics are coming up. Its something I really want to do. But at the same time, if I have to make a big decision, if something has to happen surgery-wise, that will have to be a step I have to take. My loyalty and my commitment to Miami Heat basketball is the No. 1 thing. An MRI exam will likely take place in the next few days. Wade had the knee drained during Miamis second-round series against Indiana. From my small conversations with the doctor at that time, I think some kind of cleanup process might have to go on, Wade said. And when that happens, from our previous experiences, it takes a while to recover. So I want to make sure that I want to recover strong and not like I did the last knee surgery that I had. Wade had surgery on his left knee in May 2007. He led the Americans in scoring at the Beijing Olympics, averaging 16 points despite coming off the bench in all eight games. USABasketball plans to have the national team convene in Las Vegas and for training camp to start there on July 6. From there, the American team will go to Washington to begin training on July 13, with more sessions beginning July 17 in Manchester, England, and July 20 in Barcelona. The Olympics begin July 27 and the first game for the Americans in London is against France two days later. The time demands could be daunting, especially with this NBAseason ending a bit later than usual because schedule changes necessitated by the lockout. This is the hand thats dealt to us, Wade said. And Im going to take this hand, Im not going to complain and Im going to move forward. Wade said Heat doctors and trainers worked with him to find ways of ensuring that playing in the postseason would not make whatever the knee problem is any worse. He also spent time with his longtime trainer, Tim Grover. You know what, I was playing in a lot of pain, Wade said. Obviously, my knee has been an issue. I sat down with the doctors a little bit during the Indiana series and talked about the possibility of whats to come. But I didnt want to think about it then. I said, Listen, lets just do what we have to do to make sure that I can give my all.And they did that. I thank them for that. He said he was sitting on his couch watching television on Friday when his thoughts turned to his hopes of being able to play in London. At that moment, he said an Olympic commercial appeared on his screen. Got a little emotional, Wade said. I loved what we had and what we shared as a unit. The possibility of not being able to do that, man, its a little different. Wades knee may keep him out of London Games

C M Y K alms.comBRASELTON, Ga. The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA), sanctioning body for the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrn, announced that it has entered into an agreement with Jackson, Mich.-based Patrick Racing to research and develop natural gas as an alternative fuel for the Series Prototype Challenge cars. Embracing natural gas as a safe and abundant fuel, IMSA/ALMS and Patrick Racing will identify development and testing opportunities for the source to power the SeriesPC cars, beginning as early as the 2013 season. We are the only racing series recognized to comply with the Green Racing protocols developed by the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and SAE International, said IMSAand ALMS Chief Operating Officer Scot Elkins. These o rganizations see Green Racing as a way to foster technology developments for tomorrows consumer production vehicles, enhance national energy security, and reduce carbon emissions. We view t he addition of natural gas to the Series as a means of continuing our mission to be on the front line of automotive technology advancement, while providing unequalled entertainment for our fans. ALMSPrototype Challenge class features the O RECAFLM09, a race car with a minimum weight of 1,985 pounds and powered by a 430-horsepower Chevrolet LS3 engine. The FLM09 features a full carbon fiber chassis, carbon brakes and an Xtrac sequential gearbox with paddle shifting. Green Racing is a major component of ALMSplatform. Two Green Racing competitions are in play every time ALMS cars hit the track: the MICHELINGREEN X Challenge aimed at ALMS teams and the GREEN CHALLENGEaimed at vehicle manufacturers. These challenges form a race within a race that build on the ALMSintense competition while measuring the factors that determine which car is winning the worlds most important race the race to an energy-secure and economically vibrant future. Both the Michelin Green X Challenge and the Green Challenge use a unique scoring system jointly developed by ALMS, DOE and EPA technical staff that rewards high performance on the race circuit, energy efficiency, and the smallest environmental impact. Patrick Racing was founded by oil and natural gas exploration and racing pioneer U.E. Pat Patrick. He developed the concept that natural gas an extremely abundant American energy source that is clean, safe and economical would be an ideal fuel for racing engines. The company has also built and tested a natural gas-powered, turbo-charged, fourcylinder engine. We are excited to become a part of the worlds premier sports car racing series and eager to help spread this technology to a vibrant, visible and growing element of the racing world, said Patrick, whose teams have three times visited the winners circle of the Indianapolis 500 and have claimed multiple IndyCar series championships. Natural gas is destined to become a major player in the transportation industry for everyday passenger vehicles, and not just fleet operations, he added. It is abundant, domestic, affordable and ecologically responsible. For more than a century, racing has been at the tip of the spear in developing new technology for the transportation industry. This is in line with and in the spirit of that history. Heading the natural gas technical development for ALMSPrototype Challenge cars will be Indianapolis 500 Hall of Fame and Motorsports Hall of Fame inductee Jim McGee. With more than 90 victories in his portfolio, McGee is universally respected as the one of the most successful team managers/chief mechanics in IndyCar racing history. The American Le Mans presented by Tequila Patrn returns to action at Lime Rock Park for the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix on Saturday, July 7. The two-hour, 45-minute race is scheduled for 3 p.m. from the 1.5-mile, seven-turn Lime Rock Park circuit. ESPN2 airs the race the same day at 4 p.m. Live coverage is available at 2:45 p.m. on ESPN3.

Oklahoma City had to go through that, and how they respond will be the story. The Heat had virtually ordained themselves as champions last year, before ever playing a game. Nobody likes a braggart, but at least it made them compelling. Which is what ESPN and sports media played upon these last two seasons. But with the villain having won, now what? We wanted them to at least wait a bit longer before they got their spoils, suffer a little more. Had they lost it this year, ratings for next year, it would seem, would be ever-increasing. Since theyve won, ratings among Heat fans will be up for sure, but around the league? For two seasons the story has been, when will they win it all? Well, theyve won it all, the conclusion has been reached. Sure, they might win more, which will drive the Miami ratings for their team. For the rest though, its kind of like the endless speculation about Favre. Will he retire? Now that hes retired, will he try another comeback? When he finally did retire and another season came with no comeback, the story ended and we moved on. Sort of like I did when the Heat blew game five open in the third quarter that story was all but over and I changed the channel. Dan Hoehne is the News-Sun Sports Editor.

C M Y K By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Mike Miller showed how tough he is while playing through injuries all season. Now he needs to make a tough decision about his future. Miller plans to meet with doctors soon to determine if his injured back needs surgery that includes a lengthy rehabilitation process. The Miami Heat guard also played with a foot problem this season, and typically declines to discuss his injury woes in any specifics other than saying hes well enough to play. Miller set an NBAFinals record by making seven 3-pointers as a reserve in Miamis title-clinching win over Oklahoma City on Thursday night. He limped with nearly every step while scoring 23 points in 23 minutes Miami won the game 121106, taking the series with the Thunder in five games and Miller raised the possibility afterward that the final game of this season may have been the final game of his career. Its been a roller coaster ride for everybody, said Miller, who has three years and $18.6 million remaining on his contract with the Heat. Everyone is dealing with something. Through the injuries, Im just glad they didnt take me back to the barn and put me down. Im just happy to be here. On Monday, hell be at a championship parade. City officials announced the event celebrating the Heat title would begin at 11 a.m. Monday, with about 90 minutes needed to complete the route. Since signing with the Heat two years ago, Miller has dealt with a slew of thumb, ankle and shoulder injuries, plus needed surgery before this season to correct a hernia issue. There were many times this season when back pain prevented him from sitting on the bench; hed either sit on the court, or sprawl out on the baseline or sideline to keep his back stretched. Mike Miller, I dont know how this guy was playing, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Miller is not the only Miami sharpshooter who is weighing his future options. Miami native James Jones said he is not absolutely certain about returning next year when the Heat try to defend their title. Like Miller, Jones also has dealt with some injury problems in recent seasons. I really couldnt tell you what the future holds for me, Jones said. Growing up in Miami and playing basketball on the biggest stage with the worlds best team and have an opportunity to win a championship is something that I never believed would come true. Now that it has come true, I dont know. Who wouldnt want to go out on top? Combined, Miller (53) and Jones (46) made 99 3-pointers for the Heat this season. Miller said he was still thrilled that Heat owner Micky Arison and team president Pat Riley wanted him in Miami two years ago, adding that whatever decision he makes will be with the team in mind.

Like I say, Im not one for giving guys credit during the season, but its over with, and that guy is an unbelievable player and an unbelievable person, Durant said. I enjoyed working out with him this summer. It was fun playing against him in the finals, but you could just tell he was very focused from the beginning of the season. The Heat have reached both finals since James and Chris Bosh j oined Dwyane Wade in Miami two s ummers ago. They had to experience finals failure their first time, a path the Thunder will have to take. Well, theyre going to gain a lot, Wade said. You know, its scary to see those young guys, man, and to be in this position. Theyre s o talented. They have an unbelievably bright future here. But one thing Ive learned, nothing is promised. You have to seize every moment. Wade won a title in 2006, then needed six years and a historic free agency haul before the Heat could add a second. With their Big Three in place, it seems unlikely the wait for another will be as long, especially if James remains as driven as he was this s eason. They will have to continue finding supporting players such as Mike Miller, who signed on shortly after the All-Star trio. After battling numerous injuries the last two years, the reserve made seven 3-pointers in the clincher. Well, we believe that we built a team thats going to be around for a while, and our goal is to hopefully come back every year, team president Pat Riley said during the trophy presentation. Riley wouldnt guarantee a repeat, as he once famously did at a championship celebration while coaching the Los Angeles Lakers. The closest he came to a prediction this time came as he congratulated the Thunder organization. We hope to see them again, Riley said. Im sure that we will. In Durant and Russell W estbrook, the Thunder have their two All-Stars locked up long term. Their difficulty will be in retaining fellow 23-and-under core pieces James Harden, the Sixth Man of the Year, and Serge Ibaka if they become free agents after next season. The new spending rules that came out of the lockout included a much steeper luxury tax system that could deter most teams especially a small-market one like Oklahoma City from wading too far over the salary-cap line in search of a contender. The James-Durant matchup, together with all the attention the Heat already drew, gave the NBA one last triumph in a season that was already better than it expected. The lockout hardly hurt at all, with fans coming right back and tuning in even more for the 66game season that began on Christmas with the Heat routing the Dallas Mavericks in a finals rematch. The Mavericks never gave themselves a shot to get back, letting key pieces leave so they could save money for free agency that begins July 1. The Thunder have no such concerns, and they will join the Heat as the favorites to be playing in midJune next year. The teams delivered in their first finals matchup, drawing the finals highest TVratings since 2004 to watch James outduel Durant for the Larry OBrien trophy and the title as best player in the game. So, how about doing it again? This is one of the best finals, when you talk about matchups, when you talk about everyone tuning in and wanting to see, because these are two teams that in the summer everyone said they should be in the finals, Wade said. We lived up to the billing. Theyre going to be around for a while, and we would love to be around just as long and just as much.
