C M Y K A familiar quote,credited t o Will Rogers,reads,All I know is what I read in the papers.While a study of the newspapers may give a fairly clear chronical of events and may document the periods and eras of developments as a cceptable history,they lack a great deal of information. It might be difficult for the y oung people of today to realize that there was no radio,no television or other m edia that broadcast news every hour on the hour,giving daily reports and statist ics on unemployment,rise in crime rates,popularity of presidents,gross national product declines,high-jackings,market slumps, a dvances in the cost of living and other facts and dire predictions,most of which seem d esigned to have a depressive effect. Those who can look back over a span of half a century or more,to the first years of Sebrings history,will e mphatically contend that Those Were the Good Old Days. In the first decade after the first settlers arrived, the only medium of news diss emination in Sebring was t he local weekly sheet,which w as primarily devoted to t elling of parties,church s ervices,new people coming to town and praising thea dvantages of the town-site, its climate,water,etc. A birth o r wedding rated a headline o n the front page although everyone in town knew about it well before the type was set. Communities,like people, have character,and like peo-p le,this character is developed in the early stagesa ccording to the guidance of t hose in power in the formative years. People who camet o Sebring before the hectic days of the famous Florida Boom in the mid-1920s were p rimarily interested in a quiet and peaceful type of life. Practically all were religiously inclined and the towns founders who kept their promise of a free lot to anyg roup that would build a church thereon encouraged this. The police department was more of a title than a vocation. The principle responsibility was to drive any roami ng cattle and swine out of the fenced town. Automobiles w ere never locked nor were homes. Folks would go on a v acation for two or three weeks and find everything in place when they returned even though the home was left unlocked. If you think about it though,these still are The Good Old Days. Sebring is still a lovely little town,a lthough of course it has grown,it savors many things from yester-year. People stills ay Howdyon the streets, and it is still a pretty safe place to live,and to this day holds many of founder George Sebrings ideals true. If the founder of Sebring w ere alive today,he would immediately recognize the downtown he conceived 100y ears ago. The unique circle and spoke plan,the idea that all roads should lead to andf rom the center of the community,still exists today despite modern highwayi mprovements. While it may be that historical records claim that George Sebrings circle planfor his downtown was based on the design of H eliopolis,an Egyptian city, there is no doubt that Sebring is an all-American city ... ac ity that takes us back to a simpler place and time.

The Good Old Days Centennial Notebook B y SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Concerns were raised at Tuesday evenings city council meeting as a resident of the Las Villa Subdivision spoke to the council aboutp roposed amendments to the development agreement. Carla Rice,a resident and member of the Las Villas Homeowners Association, voiced her concerns during the meetinga bout a proposal from New Concepts by Visions,Inc. to develop on the southern end of the property. e saw notice that someone had come before city council and gotten a pproval to start looking at possibly putting something other than a residential area in the boundaries of our subdivision. We have a lot of concern about that ... to change the zoning to allow ana ssisted living facility would really not constitute the proper use for this type of property,Rice stated. Currently there are 14 occupied lots in the subdivision with a total of 150l ots,according to Rice. New Concepts proposal for development would use approximately 42 lots on the south portion of the subdivision. e dont know anything. Weve h eard nothing. The people that have the plan havent talked to the people who live there at all,Rice said. R ice is also concerned that an assisted living facility being added to the subdivision will devalue the residents propert y and create a nuisance for residents. Rice presented a petition to the council,signed by residents of Las Villa, p etitioning the city to disapprove of the developments in the area. Councilmember AndrewFells spoke Las Villas residents concerned about development proposal By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING A clarification of Fridays News-Sun article regarding the City of Sebrings investigation into Sebring Fire Department members is needed. International Association of Fire Fighters local chapter Union President Ross Edmonds has recently been under investigation by the Sebring Police Department. Edmonds stated that the four firefighters Robert Border,Ken Barefield,Brandon Albritton and Jim Bakernamed in Fridays News-Sun article have not had investigations opened on them,but instead were questioned and interviewed as part of Edmondsinvestigation. They were called in for a sick leave investigation on me. Those four guys werent under investigation,Edmonds said Friday afternoon. The News-Sun apologizes for the error and appreciates the opportunity to set the record straight. Sebring Fire Department investigations clarification By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK Former Police Michael Rowan contacted the News-Sun,through his attorney Robert H. Grizzard II,Friday afternoon. There is concern that a portion of the article Sparks Fly in APPD debatein Fridays edition are misleading. At issue is a statement made by Julian Deleon,Avon Park city manager,that he could not find any citizen complaints against police officers dating from any administration prior to John King becoming public safety director for the city. Specifically,in the fourth paragraph from the bottom of the story,on page 3A, Deleon is quoted as saying,Citizen complaints prior to John King were not available.Deleon is paraphrased as adding that it is too soon to draw conclusions. Written records may exist somewhere; it might only be a matter of finding them. Grizzard told the News-Sun that unfounded citizen complaints would not be a part of any police officers personnel file. Some citizen complaints existed, Grizzard said,but the last time Rowan saw them before being denied any further access to the building,they were in a drawer in (then Lt.s desk.

In it,he appears (to some c ount any credit business owners might take for building their own business. A fter watching the debate on this for a while,I f ound a link to the Washington Times my friend Tina sent me anda ctually listened to part of the speech. The website, along with the video, i ncluded a transcript of the relevant paragraphs. I i nclude a portion of the paragraph that has everyone so riled up below: If you were successful, somebody along the lineg ave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.S omebody invested in roads and bridges. If youve got a b usiness you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen. Depending on your outlook,the President eithera sserted that nobody does anything in a vacuum (so say his supporters) or said that business owners dont deserve any credit for whatt heve accomplished (so say his detractors). I listened to the speech almost three times (I got distracted during time No. 2 so it doesnt fully count). ve read over at least one debate on Facebook. Even as I type this Im discussing the speech with a liberal friend of mine. Youd think that I would have a good handle on it with all that. And a firm opinion one way or the other. Instead,Im scratching my head and asking myself, Did he really mean to say it like that? Let me point out that I do agree with the President in part. Behind every successful person there is someone who helped them. As a writer,I can point to several people whom I could list as having assisted me in my quest to be a better writer. But does that mean I am not building my writing business? The time I put into it where does that f all on the presidents radar? The hours and sweat a nd tears that go into a successful business did the President truly mean to dis-c ount all that in saying people dont build their own b usinesses? Even if you try to say that he wasnt talking aboutt hat,he meant that business people didnt build the infrastructure that cont ributes to their success,I still have a problem with t he statement. Business owners pay taxes. Said taxes,at least some of them,go towards the infrastructure. Roads and thel ike arent things the government gives to us we pay for them. So in a sense, we do help build them, because without taxpayer dollars they wouldnt exist. Of course,perception p lays a lot in how you look at this speech. If you b elieve that Obama is unfriendly to business,you are going to see this as a slap towards business owners. If you support hisd esire to make businesses pay more taxes,you probably dont know what the fuss is about. The upshot of it is that w hether he meant to or not, President Obama has managed to tick off a group of people already suspicious of his motives. As I type this he isnt backing down from the statement and his supporters insist the right is just misunderstanding him. I dont know. Its badly worded at best,and at worst dismisses those we need to provide jobs in this economic downturn as not deserving any credit for what they do. d think we want to encourage business owners, not insult them.

Cox is the man for the superintendentEditor: E ach and every school in Highlands County has educational leaders,in the class-r oom and in the administrative office. What we need is a financial leader as superintendent. Someone who can lead the educational leaders t hrough the money shortage and still be able to do the best for the students of Highlands County. That person is Wally Cox.I am retired from The School Board of Highlands County. I was an elementary school bookkeeper in Sebring. I was hired as ab ookkeeper while Wally was still the director of finance. W ally worked closely and patiently with me and theo ther bookkeepers,helping us understand the budget so we could get the most for our money to help the students and teachers. His phi-l osophy was and still is: Without the children and teachers,we dont have a reason to come to work. We need to do the best we canf or them. For sure,money is tight, everywhere,however,he has the financial expertise to continue to lead the school system through these difficult times. He has had to make many difficult decisions on funding. As money continues to be an issue, more tough choices will be made. I am confident these choices will be made with the impact on students foremost in his mind. Wally is the consummate servant leader. He works for the students and teachers of Highlands County. My grandchildren attend school in Highlands County and I continue to be involved in schools as a volunteer. Both my children teach school in Highlands County. I know first hand how the budget cuts affect them and their individual jobs. I also know how much Wally appreciates the personnel working for the school district. I feel very confident,that as things improve,he will make an effort to give back what has been deleted. However,without money,you shouldnt make promises you cant keep. Becky Bozeman SebringEducation makes the difference Editor: We are truly blessed in Highlands County to have the number of citizens who are willing to run for an elected office. The school board race for the District 3 seat is one of these races that will be decided by the votes cast on the Aug. 14 Primary. Both candidates are fine i ndividuals and strong women. One candidate stands apart from the other due to her education credentials and educational experi-e nce. As we vote to elect individuals to the school board or the county commission it is important to remember to keep a balance of representation on these boards or commissions. By balance I am looking at the constituents that are represented by its members and the business that is conducted by the board or commission. Dr. Mary Ann Lewis will bring this balance to The School Board of Highlands County (SBHC commitment to education, children and the community. Currently there is only one educator sitting on the SBHC. This is a board with a single focus,education. Dr. Lewiss commitment to education is evidenced by the degrees that she has earned including a doctorate from the University of Miami and the years of experience as a teacher and administrator at the elementary,middle and high school levels. Because of her love of teaching she continues to teach as an adjunct instructor at South Florida State College where she teaches the Master Student Class at the Lake Placid Campus. Through this position she can tell you exactly how prepared the graduates of Highlands County schools are for higher education. Dr. Lewis has a vested interest in our local school district. MaryAnn has two grandchildren enrolled in the school district,one at the elementary and one at the middle school; plus her daughter was recently hired as a teacher at the elementary level. Dr. Lewiscommitment to children and our communityi s demonstrated by her participation in the community. She mentors with Take Stock in Children,she sits on the Childrens Services Board,a nd she is a Guardian adLitem assigned by the court to provide a voice for abused or neglected children. As you go to the polls to vote,select the candidate that will have the shortest learning curve. Vote to elect the candidate that will be able to immediately be a contributing member of the school board. Vote to elect the candidate that will put our children first. Vote for MaryAnn Lewis Ed.D. Olivia Scott Avon ParkDistortion is part of politicsEditor: First off there is no such thing as Obamacare! That is a derogatory term cooked up by one of Mitt Rommels (sic president of the United States. The true name is the atient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Since the Republicans have set a precedent with their Obamacarethat gives me the OK to also distort words/names. There baaaack. Those ubiquitous political signs put out by all those wanabes telling you to vote for them because there better than anyone else,and if you dont believe it just ask one of them. One thing that is interesting and they all have in common,theres no indication of their party affiliation. Now I can understand a Republican being ashamed to admit hes a member of that group,but a Democrat should be proud because he/she is a true American. Theres a small Mom and Pop outfit in Detroit thatb orrowed a few dollars from the stimulus program,used it wisely and has paid back loans made to the company by the United States andC anadian governments. That company is General Motors,which earned a record $7.6 billion profit in 2011,the highest profit in the compans 103-year history.They sold 640,000 more cars and trucks in 2011 than in 2010 and took in a total of $105 billion. From CNN Money General Motors announced plans on June 22,2012 to add a third shift at its SUV plant in Arlington,Texas,as the company continues to ramp up production after deep cuts during the financial crisis. The additional shift will keep the facility running around the clock, and will generate roughly 800 additional jobs. Now,with auto demand coming back lots of companies across the board are adding third shifts. An advantage of third shifts is that they allow companies to ramp up production without constructing new facilities. GMs other three North American truck plants are already operating with three shifts. The companys North American operations are working at more than 100 percent of capacity,making heavy use of overtime and a third shift. If as Rommel (sic the Obama administration are the cause of job loss in this country and the stimulus program is a rip off of the public,how come General Motors does not agree with him? Whereas Massachusetts had a 43 percent drop in employment while Rommel (sicas the governor. Sandy Oleesky Sebring It also seems to be mean-spirited and t he air is full of slung mud. Nationally,there are stories of drought in the Midwest. Corn prices are going up,and so is bread and beef. Storms seem to be coming out ofn owhere; every day another town is wind-torn or flooded. Devastating weather has already hit our own county,a nd the hurricane season started less than two months ago. Statewide,there is a lot of talk about e ducation,or the lack of success,and how we fixthe last fixes that were i nstalled. Changes that leave more questions than answers when it comes to measuring the effectiveness of ours chools. Where do we go with the FCAT? How do we improve our childrens learning? Give them the tools t hey need to handle current problems and challenges? Is it possible to give them the knowledge needed to secure their own future? In addition to all the ideological disc ussion,we are faced within our own communities with tighter budgets and flared tempers over decisions concern-i ng Avon Parks police department, Sebrings fire department pensions and recreation funding. T he county is being forced to discuss possible cuts to civic and non-profit o rganizations that provide positive impacts to several parts of the communities they touch. Worthy groups,like Nu-H ope and the Boys and Girls Club,that help the elderly and the youth alike,may be on the chopping block. There are also questions about leaders hip right now. Locally,there is maneuvering and doubt,debate and politics about how the top position for county administration will finally shake out. We know emotions and anger are runn ing high right now. Fear,uncertainty and doubt are on the loose lurking,it seems,behind even a trip to a movie theater. So among all the noise and haste,the N ews-Sun encourages you to stop for a moment this weekend and be still. Take a moment to think about good times.H ug your kids,even those grown and out of the house. Laugh.D espite the storm clouds,remember we are halfway through this troubling y ear. Consider that the hardest parts are somewhat behind us now,at least for 2012. H ang on,we are over the hump. It is, as they say,all downhill from here. Its all downhill from here This year has so far been filled with a lot of discussion and rhetoric. Certainly that is par for a presidential year,but it seems to have started a little earlier and is lasting a lot longer.

It was just a straw vote, for lack of a b etter phrase, Swaine said. Cook was present to address the concerns of residents on Tuesday. ere still negotiating t hings. They (property owner, Neighborhood Lending Partners) have had a bid for proposal for the entire project ... but its a very soft bid. So they are not looking at it too hard at this moment. I amm eeting next week with the USDAon the funding portion o f it, Cook said. Councilmember Scott Stanley explained to Cook and Rice that the developer still has several steps to go before development can begin. It may just fall apart due to funding, but youll stillh ave to go through the zoning board hearings and all the o ther hoops and public hearings so that the other residents have their voice andc an be spoken at that time ... It wasnt a done deal, S tanley explained. John Clark also added that the city requires developerst o meet with residents and neighbors of a proposed development area before any d evelopment can begin. The folks that live there w ill have several different times to express their concerns with zoning and public hearings, Mayor George Hensley said. They will ben otified when they occur If they ever occur Swaine said. Rice understood the process and stated that the residents didnt want to wait until development was overt o come to the city with their concerns. N o action was taken over the issue Tuesday.

He always had a smile,always made you laugh. He had a little bit of comic in him. Witty,s mart. He was loving,had a b ig heart. M icayla Medek,23,was also among the dead,her fathers cousin,Anita Busch, told the Associated Press. Busch said the news,while heartbreaking,was a relief f or the family after an agon izing day of waiting for n ews. I hope this evil act ... doesnt shake peoples faith i n God,she said. A blogger who recently wrote of surviving a Toronto s hooting was also among those killed,the womans brother said. The death of Jessica G hawi,who was also known as Jessica Redfield,was a complete and utter shock, said her brother,Jordan Ghawi. He has been using his blog and Twitter account to update w hat he knew about his sisters condition throughout the day. He also appeared on the NBC Todayshow. A urora Police Chief Dan Oates said Friday evening at a press conference that the l ast of the 10 deceased victims from the midnight showing of a Batman movie was removed from the theater Friday afternoon. O ates said officers expected to get a confirmed list of t he dead and meet with their families Friday night. In addition to the 10 peop le killed at the theater,two others later died from their i njuries. Jordan Ghawi said on his website that a man who was w ith his sister at the theater described the chaos,saying he and Jessica Ghawi dropped to take cover when t he gunman first started shooting. Jessica Ghawi was shot in the leg,her brother wrote, describing details relayed toh im by a man identified on the blog only as a mutual f riend named Brent. Jessica Ghawi began screaming when she wass hot,and the friend tried to calm her and stop the bleedi ng,according to Jordan Ghawi. The man was then shot,but h e continued attending to Jessica Ghawis wound before he realized she had stopped screaming,Jordan G hawi stated. The man said Jessica Ghawi had been shot in the head. Jordan Ghawi said the f riend escaped the theater after being shot twice,but he w as expected to survive. Jordan Ghawi praised the man,saying his actions aren othing but heroic. Jessica Ghawi,24,moved t o Denver from Texas about a year ago and friends and colleagues described her as outg oing,smart and witty. She was always kind of a sponge as far as how she could be an even better journ alist and sports broadcaster,said Peter Burns,a radio sports show host with MileH igh Sports Radio in Denver, where Ghawi recently i nterned. Ghawi blogged at length about surviving the EatonC entre mall shooting in Toronto that killed two peop le and sent several others to the hospital. Burns and his girlfriend,Lauren Anuskewicz,both said the blog reflected everything shet old them. She was like,ou guys w ould never believe what happened,Anuskewicz said. J essica Ghawi wrote of the Toronto shooting:I was s hown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystandersfaces. I saw t he victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we dont know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath. Anuskewicz said Jessi ca Ghawi had been in Toronto visiting a boyfriend and it o bviously was a very scary s ituation. And to be just so close to it,she added. Its just impossible to imagine that not even a month and a half later this would happen,and she would be involved. Is just awful. Yet,Burns said,Jessica Ghawi seemed more enlivened than intimidated by s urviving that shooting. After the Toronto inc ident,I think she even looked a t that like,Hey,even after t hat,Im able to pursue my dream,he said. Burns said he was close to her family. He moved to Denver from Texas a few years ago and talked withJ essica Ghawi about establishing a sports radio career there,he said. F ormer colleague Mi ke T aylor,a sports host at KTKR-AM in San Antonio d escribed how she reluctantly changed her name for her career,taking the name Redfieldas a play on her r ed hair because it was easier t o say than her given name.

He has managed it since 1 986. I went from being a regulator working with tax money,to being regulated in the private sector,he said. I just feel I know both sides of the operations. You learn a lot through experience. Having been on the countys Planning & ZoningC ommission since 1988,and part of the group that wrote the countys first comprehensive plan,Brooks is up to date with land use issues. Brooks thinks the main p roblem facing the county is how to provide essential s ervices in a period of decreasing revenue. His approach will to be to d o his homework and listen to the taxpayer,he said. There has to be an open response between individuals and the commission.He stressed using common sense solutions. Brooks feels strongly that the county needs to work with private industry and business to create an atmosphere that encourages growth and creates jobs. My philosophy is based on whats called the Yellow Page policy.That is,if (the county) is looking to providea service we go to the Yellow Pages and see if there is a private provider already here. If there is,the government doesnt have to get into it. oung people have to have decent job opportunities. At the same time,we need to keep what people like about Highlands County. We dont want to lose thats mall town feel. The reality is that only a bout 10 percent of the count y is developed or slated for d evelopment. Our comprehensive plans have an urban g rowth area that surrounds e xisting infrastructure and s hould provide for our needs f or the next 20 years or so. B rooks sees agriculture continuing as an essenti al economic component in the future. He has faith that the county will grow as a destination site. He said art and culture are as important as recreational opportunities in drawing visitors. I am not a proponent of big government,Brooks said. Government cant be all things to all people. It has a tendency to create more government. Today you could fill a room with state statutes and codes. Wre never happy; we always want to add another layer. ou used to be able to pull a permit in an afternoon, now it can take weeks. Government has to be practical. W hile government tran sparency is important,Brooks feels there is a benefit to be able to meet privately in certain situations. He does not believe the commission should micromanage. The commission sets policy; the administrator operates the county,he said. Continued from page 1A Majors (19-underfive teams from the Heartland are state champions a literal handful.

C M Y K LIVING B SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, July 22, 2012 By Sharon ThompsonMcClatchy NewspapersTomatoes,squash,corn,peaches the summer is full of yumminess. But what to do with all these tasty fruits and vegetables? Check out our guide to selecting,storing and preparing your summer harvestMany of us wait all year for tomato season,when we can buy homegrown tomatoes from local farmers or pick them from our gardens and enjoy the smell and juiciness of a realtomato. Even though most any freshly picked tomato tastes wonderful,many consumers want heirloom tomatoes because of the flavor and texture that rarely can be found in modern tomatoes. Heirloom or homegrown,here are tips on how to select and store fresh tomatoes: A ripe tomato will be vibrant in color, plump and firm,and have just a little give. Sniff it if you can; if its missing that sweet,woody smell,leave it behind. Always look for tomatoes and grape tomatoes that are free of wrinkles,a sign of age. Keep tomatoes unwashed and at room temperature; putting them in the refrigerator can turn the flesh mealy. For maximum air circulation,remove them from plastic bags. To help speed ripening,put them in a paper bag with an apple,which emits ethylene gas,a ripening agent. Once ripe,tomatoes will last up to three days. For the smoothest slicing,use a serrated knife,which will cut through a tomatos skin without bruising the flesh. To remove the core,use a paring knife to cut around it at an angle. Real Simple magazineBack yard gardeners who grow zucchini and yellow summer squash often have more than they can possibly eat. The prolific summer squashes can be used in so many different dishes,that its a shame to think about giving the extras away. But neighbors will appreciate your generosity. If you buy zucchini a type of summer squash or yellow squash at the farmers market,choose small (about 6 to 8 inches long and tender ones because both skin and seeds are eaten. The peel is antioxidant-rich. To store fresh summer squash,place it unwashed in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. Wash the squash just before preparation. The storage life of summer squash is brief,so use it within two to three days. Summer squashes have a mild flavor and pair well with a variety of herbs and seasonings. Because they are so versatile,freeze as many as possible to use during the winter. To freeze zucchini and summer squash for use in soups and casseroles,cut into 1/4inch-thick slices. Place in boiling water for 2 minutes,remove and plunge in ice water to stop the cooking. Drain well and pat dry between layers of paper towels. Place in freezer bags,label and freeze. If you want to make zucchini muffins and quick breads,shred the zucchini first. Make sure the zucchini is blemish-free and rinse it well under cold water. Do not peel. Once shredded,portion out the zucchini in the amounts you need for your recipes. Place it in freezer bags,squeezing all the air out and pressing the bags flat. Label and date. Sliced or shredded zucchini keeps about 10 months in the freezer. Before using shredded zucchini in muffins or quick breads (most bakers prefer zucchini), thaw it and pat it dry between several layers of paper towel on a dish. Let stand about 10 minutes and press down again,squeezing out as much moisture as you can. Shredded zucchini also is great for making pancakes,and zucchini and summer squash are great for tossing with hot pasta. According to Cooks Illustrated,you can seed larger zucchini and summer squash by rolling the vegetable and applying slight pressure with the palms of your hands to soften the insides and loosen the seeds. Then halve the vegetable lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a spoon. Ask any farmer or back yard gardener about fresh corn and thell tell you the best way to cook it. Put a poto f water on to boil before you run out to the garden,pick the corn,shuck it on the way back to the house,and plunge it into the boiling water. S ince most of us dont have back-yard crops,we must buy corn at the farmers market or grocery store. Wll take it anywhere we can get it. Here are some suggestions on how to select,store and prepare fresh corn: Look for ears with green husks,moist stems and silk ends that are free of decay. Kernels should be small,tender,plump and milky when pierced,and they should fill up all the spaces in the rows. Keep unshucked fresh corn in the refrigerator until ready to use,wrapped in damp paper towels and placed in a plastic bag. Typical shelf life is 4 to 6 days. To steam:Remove husks and silks. Trim stem ends. Stand ears in a tall pot with 1 inch of water. Cover with a tightfitting lid and steam for 5 minutes. To microwave:Place ears of corn,still in husks,in a single layer in the microwave. Microwave on high for 2 minutes,turning the ears halfway through cooking time. Allow corn to rest several minutes before removing the husks and silks. To boil:Remove husks and silks. Trim stem ends. Carefully place ears in large pot of boiling water. Cook 2 to 4 minutes,or until the kernels are tender. To grill:Peel away the outer layers of husk. If the ears have many layers,peel off the first few,leaving a few layers for protection but allowing the kernels to caramelize a little. Put the corn on the grill as soon as the initial flames from the charcoal die down and the coals are still red hot. Grill the corn, turning often,until the first layer of husk is charred completely. Depending on your fire, this could take 5 to 10 minutes. Just before serving,peel back the husk and brown the kernels on the grill,turning the corn frequently.To remove the corn from its husk, cut the stem end up to the bottom of the ear and peel back the husks and silk. From the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension ServiceA basket of just-picked peaches will yield some of our most favorite summer treats:ice cream,pies,cobblers,shortcakes,smoothies,muffins and preserves. Sure,we can buy them ready-made,but the joy comes from peeling,pitting and slicing and turning the glorious fruit into something even more spectacular. Peaches should be soft to the touch but not mushy. Look for a well-defined crease that runs from the stem to the point. Dont squeeze peaches; they bruise easily. Place firm peaches on the counter for a day or two,and thell ripen. Promptly refrigerate ripe peaches and eat them within a week of purchase. To keep sliced peaches from darkening,add lemon juice or ascorbic acid. Three medium peaches will yield 1 pound,or 2 cups,of sliced peaches or 1? cups of pure. As a general rule,avoid bruising peaches in the picking or preparation processes. The peaches should be ripe yet firm. Very soft peaches will not cook or freeze well. To peel easily:Submerge in boiling water,immediately plunge peaches into cold water. The skin should come off in large peels. If peaches are slightly underripe,allow them to remain in the hot water a little longer to loosen the peel. From Georgia peach grower Dickey FarmsILLUSTRATONS BY DAVE J OHNSON/MCT MCT ILLUSTRATON

My problem is whenever we go out, if I ask her to wear something sexy for me,she always says,Im too old to dress like thatand refuses. However,when she dresses for work,she spends hours on her appearance and dresses very sexy. I have told her it bothers me,but she says Im being silly and she just wants to look good for her management job. Shes constantly buying new outfits for work. This morning she left wearing a sexy short miniskirt and boots. She is an independent woman who does what she wants. I dont spend my time trying to control her by any means. I trust her and seriously doubt theres another man. But I feel this is a matter of her not respecting my feelings as her husband. Am I wrong? Is there something else going on here? I need your help. Likes Her Sexy in Connecticut Dear Likes Her Sexy: Theres something sad about the fact that your wife doest want to put the same amount of effort into looking as good when she goes out with you as she does when she leaves for work. Rather than turning this into a power struggle,the next time you want to take her out looking sexy,ask her to just throw on something she would wear to the office and see if you have better luck. Dear Abby: I am 18 and will be graduating in May of next year. Because I have always done well in school, my family expects me to go right off to a big-league college. Abby,I want to go to college,but not right away. (I am also not too fond of staying in dorms.) I want to be a zoologist,and plan on going to school for it,but I feel t hat my family is rushing me into college because they expect it of me. When I tell them my other interest is hairstyling,and I may want to take a year off to do that to save up money,they put me down and compare me to my successful college cousins. I want my family to be proud of me because I have worked hard in school. I only wish they would be just as proud of me if I maintained a nice job for a few years and then went to college. (I have been told if I choose that path,I will never go to college and Ill never make good money.) They also blame my not wanting to go to college right away on my boyfriend of two years. I assure you, that is not the reason. I want to attend an in-state college, and I would still be able to see him. Do you have any advice? Schooled-Out in Colorado Dear Schooled Out: The longer you delay college,the more distractions there will be and the harder it will be for you to go back. Yes,people do it. But juggling a job and going to school is more d ifficult than going to school full-time,and it takes longer to get the degree. I urge you to listen to your parents. They have your best interests at heart. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

C M Y K Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO Tall and tan and young and lovely...Youve heard of her. The Girl From Ipanema. You might have come across the bossa nova classic while on hold on the phone, during a long elevator ride,or in a cafe in Beirut or Bangkok but youve heard it. Its been recorded by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Amy Winehouse,and survived bad lounge singers and Muzak incarnations to become,according to Performing Songwriter magazine,the second most recorded song in the world. The quintessential bossa nova tune,inspired by a young woman who passed the songwriters in a beachside bar on her way to the sea,introduced Rio de Janeiro to the world. Now, its turning 50,and to its legions of fans,the decades have only heightened its allure,adding a wash of nostalgia to this hymn to passing youth and beauty. I love this music,and had been searching for this place,said Venezuelan tourist Xiomara Castillo,who with her husband was taking pictures inside the bar where the songs authors watched their muse saunter by in the songs eponymous neighborhood. For me,Rio de Janeiro is this song,is bossa nova; the city has this rhythm,this charm,this sensuality. Indeed,the song carries within its chords and lyrics an image of a city thats light and easy,palm trees and blue sky,a sun-kissed life without care. Rio is in the levity of the song,its absolute elegance, the way it doesnt take itself seriouslysaid Ruy Castro,a writer and journalist who has chronicled the city,its music and its nightlife. This girl who swings so cool and sways so gently first stepped out in public on August 1962,in a cramped Copacabana nightclub. On stage together,for the first and only time,were the architects of bossa nova:Tom Jobim on piano and Joao Gilberto on guitar,with help from the poet Vinicius de Moraes,who gave The Girl her lyrics. Also performing was the vocal group Os Cariocas. Bossa nova was still young then,somewhat ofa novelty even in Rio. The name meant new trendor new way. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, July 22, 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 CROSSWORDSOLUTION Recently,my family took a field trip to a few of our beautiful lakes. My son has a couple of pet turtles and our i dea of a great activity is going out in search of treasure to put into their tanks. Included in our last find w ere some tiny fish along with some aquatic vegetation. Those few fish have t urned into many more fish. We have recently learned that these creatures are mosquito fish. The reason we now have about three times the fish that we started out with is that they have live young. According to my research, t he average female may have a s many as 60 young. The a dult females have a 16to 2 8-day gestation period. The n ew brood are said to have an equal male to female ratio. It would seem that we w ill never run out of fish in these tanks. O nce they are born,the tiny creatures are so small t hat you can barely see them, a bout 0.31 inches in length. Apparently they grow about 0.0079 inches per day.They grow fastest if the water temperature isf rom 75 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The fully grownf emale usually reaches an overall length ofa bout 2.8 inches and the males about 1.6 inches. Males reach sexual maturity in about 43 to 62 days andf emales in 21 to 28 days. The average lifespan for these fish is about a year to ay ear and a half. Males dont live as long as the females. This freshwater species of f ish has been called the mosquito fish because their main s ource of food consists of large amounts of mosquito larvae,relative to their bodys ize. These fish are actually n amed gambusia (Gambusia affinis) and are members of the family Poeciliidae of order Cyprinodontiformes. These creatures were i ntroduced into many ecosystems in an effort to l ower mosquito populations. Throughout all stages of life, these fish feed on the larvae of mosquitoes. Researchs hows that these tiny creatures can consume up to 167 percent of their own body weight on mosquito larvae. They will also consume zooplankton,small insects,otheri nsect larvae and detritus. Mosquito fish have a grayish,silvery looking body that can,at times,appear green-brown with blue-gray sides. Their underside is white. They have a large abdomen with rounded dorsal and caudal fins. They h ave large heads compared t o their body size and big eyes. Their heads are flat with an upturned mouth. The scales are in the shape of a d iamond. Females have a s pot on the rear of their a bdomen and are much larger than the males. M osquito fish are naturall y found in the southern and eastern portions of the United States. They prefer shallow water where they are safe from larger species. They are quite hardy and can survive where other fish cann ot. They tolerate high salt concentrations,low oxygen a nd even high temperatures. They can be found in backwaters of rivers and streamsw here there is plenty of aquatic vegetation. S ince they are not particular about water quality,they a re also found in ditches, marshes,swamps,impoundments,ponds,marshes,lakes and even waste-water treatment facilities. If necessary,t he mosquito fish can gulp air directly from the atmosp here. They can also survive in brackish water since they have a tolerance for salt. N ow our pet animal count is even larger,but everyone s eems to be getting along just fine in the habitats. A s with all the creatures we adopt,we have learned much about these tiny but interesting fish and are look ing forward to many hours of enjoyment and relaxationw atching them in their watery homes.

Viacom Inc. and the satellite TV service provider said Friday that they have settled a disputet hat had cut off access to 17 Viacom channels for D irectTV subscribers. Terms of the deal were notd isclosed. Channels such as MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon had been inaccessible to some 20 millionD irecTV customers since July 10 as the two companies haggled over how much DirecTV should pay to carry those channels. A day later Viacom also shut off access to fulllength episodes on its own websites such as MTV.com and ComedyCentral.com to all visitors,even those who h ad no stake in the dispute. That was apparently in response to DirecTV telling its U.S. subscribers where they could find programs ont he Internet that they could no longer watch on television.

A MCs Mad Men,which has won four best drama series trophies and is tiedw ith Hill Street Blues, L.A. Laand The West Wing,received a fifth bid int he category. s insane. I cant believe i t,said Mad Mencreator Matthew Weiner. I cant believe we are on the air. Ic ant believe that people dont call AMC A&E anym ore. Im so proud of the network. The miniseries American Horror Story,a nightmarish saga about a haunted house,r eceived a matching 17 awards,including an acting n od for star Connie Britton. Other leading nominees include the elegant British-b orn soap opera Downton Abbey,which earned 16 b ids,and two miniseries, Hatfields & McCoys,with 16,and Hemingway & G ellhornwith 15. Modern Family,honored as best comedy series for the past two years,was the sitcom leader with 14 bids andp ractically ran the table in supporting actor nods,but the comedy realm also saw an infusion of girl power. Breakout comedies with w omen at their center in fashion after the box-office s uccess of Bridesmaids proved alluring to Emmyv oters. Girls,creator-star Lena Dunhams darkly comedic coming-of-age New York story,received a best come-d y nod and acting,writing and directing nominations for her. Zooey Deschanels offbeat charm in New Girl earned her an acting bid. I have had the shriekiest morning of my life,said Dunham,as she arrived on set in New York to shoot the second season of Girls. literally feel like I got asked to the prom and engaged and told I was going to the moon all in one day. Not to be too dramatic. I jumped around in my bed and I ran down the hall thats in my apartment building thats not even part of my house without my pants on,she said. Girlsis HBOs current spin on Sex and the City, which was a strong past Emmy favorite,said Tom ONeil,editor of the Gold Derby awards website. He called Dunham the current toast of Hollywood. Melissa McCarthy,who appeared in Bridesmaids, has a chance to repeat last years victory as best comedy actress winner for Mike& Molly. Emmy darling Julia LouisDreyfus,with past wins for Seinfeldand New Adventures of Old Christine,earned an acting nod for Veep,which received a best comedy nomination. Betty White,90,brought her veteran brand of female empowerment to the nominations,earning two bids b est reality series host nod for Betty Whites Off Their Rockersand best varietys pecial for Betty Whites 90th Birthday:A Tribute to A mericas Golden Girl. White may have banished someone else from the best r eality show host category:A no-show this time was perennial winner Jeff Probst of Survivor. Top nominations were a nnounced by Kerry Washington of Scandal and by Jimmy Kimmel,who will host the awards and who filled in Thursday for NickO fferman of Parks and Recreation,held up by w eather-related travel delays on the East Coast. This is a sex dream,isnt it?joked Kimmel,ABCs late-night host,who arrived on stage at the TV academy dressed in pajamas. JimmyK immel Livwas nominated in the variety category. The Emmy ceremony is scheduled to air on ABC on Sept. 23. A cademy voters paid tribute to the late Kathryn Joosten,who received a supporting actress bid for her role as Wisteria Lane neighbor Karen McClusky in Desperate Housewives. Joosten,who had won two Emmys for the role,died in June of lung cancer. The shos other stars failed to make the Emmy cut for its eighth and final season. Hugh Laurie,whose show Housealso wrapped after eight years,didnt get a last shot at winning a trophy for his cranky Dr. House. American Idol,TVs top-rated non-sports show, was shut out of the best reality series contest for the first time in its 11-year history, although Ryan Seacrest was nominated as host. Its biggest competition in the reality-singing category, The Voice,did get a nod. Adding to the sting,Idol has seen its audience steadily erode and is searching for judges to replace Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. Competition for Mad Menand Downton Abbe includes national security drama Homeland,prohibition-era crime saga Boardwalk Empire, teacher-turned-drugmaker tale Breaking Badand the elaborate fantasy Game of Thrones,based on George R.R. Martins novels. Downton Abbey,which has earned ratings and buzz for PBS,was named best miniseries last year but was switched to the drama category this time around. The TV academys prime-time awards committee decided its continuing story line made it a series. American Horror Story decided to move to the miniseries category after competing as a drama series in the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards. Besides Modern Family, and Veep,comedy series nominees include The Big Bang Theory, Rockand Curb Your Enthusiasm. Big-screen stars who have a shot at the small-screen trophy for their TV movie work include Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman for Hemingway & Gellhorn, about the tumultuous romance of Ernest Hemingway and journalist Martha Gellhorn,Julianne Moore for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in Game Changeand Kevin Costner for Hatfields & McCoys. Rising British star Benedict Cumberbatch wona bid for his contemporary Sherlockportrayal. Sherlock:A Scandal in Belgraviaearned 13 bids as a PBS Masterpiecemovie. Mad Menstar Jon Hamm,who hasnt shared in his shos string of wins, will have his fifth shot at a lead actor Emmy. Bryan Cranston,the Breaking Badstar who denied Hamm the award three times before, was nominated again for his role as a teacher with cancer who gets embroiled in drug trafficking. Our show is like stinky cheese,Cranston said. You h ave to develop a taste for it. Also nominated were S teve Buscemi for Boardwalk Empire, Michael C. Hall for Dexter,Hugh Bonneville for Downton Abbeand Damian Lewis for Homeland. Buscemi found out hed earned a nomination on a day he was scheduled to go t o the Boardwalk Empire set. Im glad Im working today so I get a chance to s ee everybody,so that the n ominations are still fresh. I think it will lift everybodys spirits today,he said. In the actress category, last years winner Julianna M argulies of The Good Wifeis joined by Moss, Claire Danes for Homeland,Glenn Close for Damages,Michelle D ockery of Downton A bbeand Kathy Bates of arrs Law. O n the comedy side,Jim P arsons of The Big Bang Theorygot a bid and the chance for a third victory. A lso nominated were Alec Baldwin of Rock,Lou is C .K. of Louie,Jon Cryer of Two and a Half Men, Don Cheadle of House ofL iesand Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Among lead comedy actresses,McCarthy is joined by Dunham, Deschanel,Amy Poehler of Parks and Recreation,Ed i e Falco of Nurse Jackieand Tina Fey of Rock. T he ensemble cast of Modern Familycleaned up in the supporting comedy c ategories,with Ed ONeill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson,Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestree t capturing four of the six slots and actresses Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara showing the flag for the women. Max Greenfield,who plays Schmidt on New Girl,won a nomination fo r b est supporting actor in a c omedy and was already thinking of the awards cere mony. Zooey and I are coordinating outfits right now,he said. Wre trying to figur e out what were gonna wear. We obviously dont wanna wear the same thing. Can you imagine how embarras sing that would be? HBO had a leading 81 nominations,while CBS ha d the highest network total with 60. PBS received 58 nods,followed by NBC wit h 51,ABC with 48,AMC with 34,Fox with 26 and Showtime with 22.

For instance,Jeff Probst a lready has four Emmys for hosting CBSSurvivor. But did he deserve to get voted off the Emmy island when this years nominationsw ere handed out? What about The Killing? Viewers were disgruntled by the mystery underlying this AMC drama,b ut you didnt have to care who killed Rosie Larsen to r ealize that co-stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnamang ave two of the years best performances. Sure,Foxs American Idolhas slipped in the ratings,and two of its judgesa re jumping ship. But does that explain why this TV juggernaut has been snubbed for a nomination as best reality-competition program for the first time ever? Meanwhile,Foxs House,which recently ended its eight-year run, goes empty-handed into Emmy annals deprived of one last chance for a best drama trophy,or a best actor nod for its star,Hugh Laurie. Other lame-duck series are getting a similar Emmy cold shoulder. FXs firefighter drama Rescue Mehas now concluded its seven-year run with routine Emmy neglect for this outstanding series and its gifted star-writer-producer. And ABCs much-honored Desperate Housewiveswill be remembered in its eighth and last season only with a nomination for the late Kathryn Joosten in the category of supporting actress ina comedy. FX scored big with its splendid comedy Louie and its creepy American Horror Story.But why not some Emmy love for Sons of Anarchy,the networs riotous motorcycle-gang drama that boasts a gang of wonderful actors,including 2011 Golden Globe winner Katey Sagal? Emmy continues to shrink from vampire and zombies. Again this year,both wildly popular True Bloodon HBO and The Walking Deadon AMC were shut out of major drama awards. HBOs mystical comedydrama Enlightenedwas spurned,as was its co-creator and star,Laura Dern, whose Golden Globe-winning performance as its scrambled heroine is among the best of her career. And while all six regulars on Modern Family snagged nominations,a fellow ABC comedy,Happy Endings,went unnoticed by Emmy,as did its six excellent co-stars. Not one,but two freshman drama series on the Starz network were overlooked: Boss,starring Kelsey Grammer as the tyrannical mayor of Chicago,and Magic City,set in the sordid glamour of 1960s Miami Beach. But both series will be courting Emmy with second seasons. With the broadcast networks continuing to cede Emmy glory to cable,Emmy seemed suitably unimpressed with last seasons new crop of broadcast shows. Only nine freshman series on the five broadcast networks got so much as a lone minor nomination,and only one,Foxs comedy New Girl,scored a major acting nod. In fact,it got two of them:for lead actress Zooey Deschanel and supporting actor Max Greenfield. But what about two other breakout hits from last season:CBSsitcom Broke Girlsand ABCs fairy-tale drama Once Upon a Time? Couldnt Emmy have made room for at least one of the funny Brokcostars,Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs? And why was Emmy blind to the spell cast by any of the Once Upon a Time ensemble? When it comes to Emmys, AMCs Mad Menhas nothing to complain about. The advertising drama continues its reign this year by picking up a leading 17 Emmy nominations. But, oddly,none of those was for costumes. Even though the series has never won in this category,it has landed a best costume nomination every year since Mad Men began. Why none this year? Viewers who savor the characterseye-popping s sartorial style have to be wondering. If Emmys annual bumper crop for Mad Menhas become ritual,another of this years big scorers is,by contrast,a big surprise. Hatfields & McCoys,a three-night miniseries that aired at the end of May, made history on fittingly History channel by averaging 13.8 million viewers as the most-watched miniseries ever on cable. Following on that ratings triumph,the program (recounting the famous interfamily feud) collected 16 nominations. Nothing to argue about there:This is the sort of out-of-nowhere surprise that Emmy watchers thrive on. Frazier Moore is a national television columnist for The Associated Press.

Nearly 18,000 cases have been reported so far more than twice the number seen att his point last year,the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.At this pace,the number for the entire year will be the highest since1 959,when 40,000 illnesses were reported. N ine children have died, and health officials called on adults especially pregnantw omen and those who spend time around children to g et a booster shot as soon as possible. My biggest concern is for the babies. There the ones who get hit the hardest,saidM ary Selecky,chief of the health department in W ashington,one of the states with the biggest outbreaks. Washington and Wisconsin have reported more than 3,000 cases each,and highn umbers have been seen in a number of other states, including New York, Minnesota and Arizona. Whooping cough has gene rally been increasing for years,but this years spike is startling. Health investigators are trying to figure out whats going on,and theoriesi nclude better detection and reporting of cases,some sort of evolution in the bacteria that cause the illness,or shortcomings in the vaccine. The vaccine that had been g iven to young children for decades was replaced in the l ate 1990s following concerns about rashes,fevers and other side effects. While the newv ersion is considered safer,it is possible it isnt as effective l ong term,said Dr. Anne Schuchat,who oversees the CDCs immunization and respiratory disease programs. Some parents in California a nd other states have rebelled against vaccinations and gott en their children exempted from rules that require them to get their shots to enroll in s chool. Washington state has one of the highest exemption r ates in the nation. But the CDC said that does not appear to be a major factor in the outbreak,since most of the youngsters who got sickh ad been vaccinated. Whooping cough,or pert ussis,is a highly contagious disease that can strike people of any age but is most dang erous to children. Its name comes from the sound child ren make as they gasp for breath. It used to be a common threat,with hundreds of thousands of cases annually.C ases gradually dropped after a vaccine was introduced in t he 1940s,and the disease came to be thought of as a relic of another age. For about 25 years,fewer than 5,000 cases were reporteda nnually in the U.S. The numbers started to climb again in the 1990s. In both 2004 and 2005, cases surpassed 25,000. Then umbers dipped for a few years but jumped to more than 27,000 in 2010,the year California saw an especially bad epidemic. E xperts believe whooping cough occurs in cycles and peaks every three to five years. But they have been startled to see peaks this high. Vaccinations are sup-p osed to tamp down the amount of infection in the p opulation and make the valleys in the cycles longer,said Pejman Rohani,a Universityo f Michigan researcher who is co-leader of a federally f unded study of whooping cough trends. The government recommends that children get vaccinated in five doses,with thef irst shot at age 2 months and the final one between 4 and 6 y ears. A booster shot is recommended around 11 or 12. Vaccination rates for young children are good about 84 percent of 3-year-olds haveg otten the recommended number of shots. But fewer than 70 percent of adolescents have gotten all their shots. Most states requirep ertussis vaccinations for school attendance. In a possible indicator of a problem with the vaccine, investigators in Washingtons tate were alarmed to see high rates of whooping cough in youngsters around 13 and 14. Whooping cough typically starts with cold-like symp-t oms that can include a runny nose,congestion,fever and a m ild cough. The CDC advises parents to see a doctor if they or their children developa prolonged or severe cough. Whooping cough is treated w ith antibiotics,the earlier the better. Health authorities are girding for what may be a bad couple of years. There is a lot of pertussis out there,and there may be m ore coming to a place near you,Schuchat said. CDC: Whooping cough rising at alarming rate in US HEALTH Metro Services Nearly 18,000 cases of whooping cough have been reported i n the U.S. this year.

Kids today have it easier:A s long as you can sneak your iPad out of the house, you can stay entertained until the battery runs dry. Who needs the wonders of nature when all you need isa few bucks and a connection to the App Store? Knights of the Round Cable(Chillingo,99 cents): The publisher of t he original Angry Birds as well as such colorful c oncoctions as Cut the Ropeand Feed Me Oil is back with another wacky arcade challenge. Your character is a knightw ho bounces around in the sky while avoiding drago ns,witches and other flying threats. You have one tool,a grappling hook thata ttaches to airborne anchor points,allowing you to s witch directions,grab treasures or hurl yourself toward distressed damselsi n need of rescue. Theres not much variety among the levels,but the d esigners have thrown in enough incentives like t he ability to spend your loot to upgrade your knights to keep you coming back. Round Cablehits the iPad sweets pot:You can learn it in seconds and then find youve spent hours twirling through its castles. The Act(Chillingo, 99 cents): Edgar is a shy window washer who nearly falls off his scaffold whenh e spies a lovely nurse making her rounds. The Actfollows Edgars attempts to woo the nurse, both in his own imagina-t ion and in his more slapstick reality. Your control is limited:Swiping right on the iPad screen makes Edgar act with more confidence,while swiping leftm akes him back off. With its charming,handd rawn animation and simple left-right choices,The Actwill remind arcadev eterans of the classic Dragons Lair a lthough it doesnt ask you to drop another quarter each time you fail. And since your mistakes are easily corrected,it onlyt akes about an hour to make it through the story. S till,thats not bad for a buck.

TECHNOLOGY ARA ContentLong gone are the days when TVs were a one size fits allproposition, when all you really wanted was the rights ize box for your living room:a picture tube TV with an unassuming appearance, only matched by its archaic remote controller. Today,the game has changed,and the choices of flat-panel HDTVs area lmost as diverse as the viewing audience. With so many options available,how do you choose the TV that fits your needs,personal interests and living space? Often,viewerspersonalities andh abits say a lot about what type of TV is best suited for their lives. You can help r efine your search for the right TV by identifying your TV persona. The TV experts at LG offer some i nsight into fiveTV-watching personality types,and some tips for choosing a produ ct that matches your personality:The Videophile A nice picture and decent sound isnt going to do it for the videophile. These technological perfectionists pay close attention to details and optimal viewingc onditions. Videophiles want the best picture and audio quality possible, i ncluding a full backlit LED array that delivers a brighter,smoother,cleaner picture. They want a refresh rate that virtu-a lly eliminates motion blur and delivers crystal clear images. Like a new car t here most likely to show-off their shiny rims,or supplementary sound system,too at least a soundbar,but m ost often a powerful home theater system that blows the windows out of any living room. The Family Man/Woman This consumer desires a high-end experience at an affordable price. Otherm onetary considerations like mortgages,day care costs and family vacations inspire them to seek the most bang for their buck when it comes to their TVs. They also need to please multiple viewers with content that pleases all ages from kids that watch cartoons to t eenagers that want to get their video game onand parents that just want to k ick back and enjoy a movie. They need a TV with options,one that offers 3D and Internet-connected Smart TV,like LGs LM6700. With six pairs of theater-like, flicker-free 3D glasses that require nob atteries or recharging,outfitting the entire family is easy and inexpensive. B uilt-in Smart TV capability affords simple access to limitless content,including movies,TV shows,songs,live games,a pps and personal video. The Internet Junkie/Multitasker G oogle TV will win the heart of this type of consumer,who enjoys Web surfing for information and uses a variety of s treaming services. These technology devotees demand a TV that offers a dualc ore processor that provides improved streaming and picture quality when streaming online content or browsing the Web with its Google Chrome browser. They like familiarity and want the sameu ser experience on their phones,tablets and now their TV. They also crave the kind of user-friendly navigation capabilities provided by LGs gesture-based Magic Remote with Qwerty keyboard. Like an air mouse,it has point/click,a scrolling wheel and the ease of a keyb oard,not to mention voice recognition, overall a familiar experience for compute r lovers. The Bachelor/Sports Fan With fewer responsibilities,the singleperson viewer often has a little bit more free cash and doesnt mind spending a little extra on a big purchase. Thesev iewers seek step-uppicture quality and faster refresh rates that helps them to v iew sports,video games and high-speed action with less motion blur. There also not afraid to splurge on all thee xtras,such as Smart TV,3D functionality and built-in Wi-Fi and demand a s leek,aesthetically pleasing package that looks high end. The Recent Grad/First-timer These consumers have just finished c ollege,started their first professional job and are looking for just the basics for their first home. A standard LCD or plas-ma TV can give them the biggest screen for less money. Bells and whistles anda esthetics take a back seat to solid picture quality. With a little research and a firm understanding of your TV persona,you can find the right television to fit your needs, budget and lifestyle. Whats your TV persona? Picking the set thats just right for you ARA Content Your viewing preference can have an effect on which TV you should buy. Review: Chillingos Knights storm across the iPad

So does a red bulls-eye. The same is truef or a half-eaten apple. Ditto f or the well-known swoosh. The most iconic company logos such as those of M cDonals,Target,Apple and Nike are visual cues that a re seared onto peoples consciousness without their even realizing it. That kind of influence has a lways been valuable,but n ow its priceless. Companies are fighting for the shrinking attention spans and wallets of consumers who increasingly get their information on tiny cell-p hone screens. And as companies expand into emerging m arkets,images matter more than words. The brand ident ity that a logo brings can pay off,and companies k now it. Thats why Fors execut ive chairman Bill Ford described the day that the a utomaker got back its signature blue oval as one of the best days I can remember.The company gained back the logo along witho ther assets in May after having used them as collatera l for a $23.5 billion loan six years earlier. Logos are a symbol of w ho you are,a rallying point,an identification of the c ompany that lets you stand out from others,said Robert Passikoff,president of Brand K eys Inc.,a New York customer research firm that measures company image. Whats better,people like logos. LogosQuiz,a smart-p hone application that tests peoples knowledge of company logos,is one of the top free games on Apples iPad tablet and iPhone. And as hort animated French film made up of nothing but l ogos called Logorama won an Oscar in 2010. T hat kind of hype translates into dollars for companies. Interbrand,whicht racks brand values,of which the logo is a key part, v alues Coca-Colas brand at $71.86 billion; McDonalds at $35.59 billion,Niks at $ 14.53 billion and Fords brand at $7.5 billion. Here is a look at how companies create and maintain iconic logos.Target: Hitting the bullseyeTarget Corp.s bullseye w as born when department store operator The Dayton C o. decided to open a discount chain in Minneapolis i n 1962. Stewart K. Widdess, Daytons publicity director,w as given the task of naming the company so shoppers w ouldnt confuse it with the department-store chain. After considering 200 other n ames,Widdess came up with both the name Target and the now ubiquitous redand-white bullseye.

To fight back, your best bet is tob e a well-informed consumer:Know the true costs ofm edical procedures,supplies a nd medications so you can bargain effectively; carefully antic-i pate and track medical expenses; and stay on top o f your bills. But sometimes,even when you follow the rules you still can get burned. ve heard many appallings tories about people even those with comprehensive i nsurance who have been denied benefits,overcharged,sent to collectionso r even forced to file for bankruptcy because they c ouldnt pay their medical bills. Here are a few coping s trategies: Carefully review each doctor,lab or hospital bill and match it against the Explanation of Benefitss tatement that shows how much they were reimbursed by the insurance company. Also,watch for items that may have been charged toy ou by mistake such as: Medications,supplies, t reatments or meals you didnt receive while hospitalized or getting an outpatient procedure. Duplicate charges for a single procedure( such as x-rays, MRIs and lab work),including t hose that had to be redone due to a t echnician's error. Charges for a full days hospitalizationw hen you checked out early; or private room rates w hen you shared a suite. The summary hospital bill you were sent probably doesnt contain many details,so ask for an item-i zed bill along with a copy of your medical chart and a p harmacy ledger showing which drugs you were given during your stay. I f youre having difficulty paying a medical bill, d ont simply ignore it. Like any creditor,doctors and hospitals often turn unpaid b ills over to collection agencies,which will wreak havoc with your credit score. Contact creditors as soon as possible,explainy our situation and ask them to set up an installment payment plan or work out a reduced rate.

Dont be afraid to ask for those lower rates and to work out a repayment plan just be sure to get the agreement in writing. Most doctors and hospitals would rather accept reduced payments than have to deal with collection agencies and possibly no reimbursement at all. Ask the hospitals patient liaison to review your case and see whether you qualify for financial assistance from the government,a charitable organization or the hospital itself. Most will forgive some or all bills for people whose income falls below certain amounts tied to federal poverty levels. Also pursue this avenue with your doctor or other provider ideally before theve begun collections. A few additional cost-savings tips: Ask whether your employer offers flexible spending accounts,which let you pay for eligible out-ofpocket health care and/or dependent care expenses ona pre-tax basis. Use online price-comparison services like Healthcare Blue Book and OutofPocket.com to research going rates for a variety of medical services. Unless its a true emergency,try to avoid emergency rooms and use an urgent care network facility affiliated with your insurance company or ask your doctor for recommendations. Bottom line:Know what health services cost and dont be afraid to negotiate. Youll haggle over the price of a car why not your health? Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

T hat Pepsi T-shirt and Nike sneakers may seem perfect for a trip to Olympic Park but will they fall foul of the brand police? O lympic organizers scrambled Friday to clarify their restrictions on branding,after the head of the London games suggested a shirt bear-i ng the logo of Pepsi rival to Olympic sponsor CocaC ola would probably be banned from Olympic ven-u es. No,you probably wouldt be walking in with a Pepsi T-shirt because Coca-Cola are our sponsors and theyh ave put millions of pounds (dollarsut also millions of pounds (dollars) into grass roots sport, g ames chief Sebastian Coe told BBC radio. It is import ant to protect those sponsors. Rubbish,says the London o rganizing committee the very body that Coe heads. Any individual coming into our venues can wear any item of clothing,branded oro therwise,the committee said in a mythbusterfact sheet. But,it added,there could be a problem if large groupsc ome in together wearing clearly visible branding/mark eting.That could be classed as ambush market-i ngby non-sponsors,a definite no-no. Organizers want to head off stunts like the one at the 2010 World Cup in SouthA frica,when the Bavaria brewing company outfitted some 30 Dutch women in mini-dresses in its trademark o range for the Netherlands opening game against D enmark. Adidas is another big sponsor,but Coe told the B BC that visitors wearing Nike sneakers would probablybe allowed in. The organizing committee insists Nike shoes are defi-n itely OK for spectators but not necessarily for games staff or participants. Guidelines sent to children who will be forming a guardo f honor for the athletes parade on July 27 have been a dvised to wear unbranded or Adidas shoes. T he confusion follows a swirl of rumors about the events complex commercial rules,including reports of visitors to Olympic Parkb eing forced to carry their potato chips in a clear plastic bag because the brand was not an Olympic sponsor.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe Sertoma Junior Tour took a different tact this week, going from regular round play to the two-day, Bill Jarrett Ford Match Play Championships at the River Greens golf course. R ather than taking on the course itself, match play forces the players to focus more on their opponent in t rying to win each hole. s a different mindset for t hese kids and its a great e xperience for them for other events down the road, tour director Andy Kesling said. This is my favorite event of the year But while the focus may go more toward an opponent in match play, the course does play a factor, which is where the nuances of River Greens came into play. River Greens is kind of unique in the fact that there isa lot of out-of-bounds, so you need to hit it straight, Kesling said. And then when you get on the green you have to be able to putt because there is a lot of slope in these greens. And so off they went in Wednesdays quarterfinal and semifinal matches in each age group. Top-seed Beckham Donovan got a push from ninth-seed Josh Bible before taking a 2 and 1 win in the 910 Boys quarterfinal. Jackson Griffin, the fourth seed, went 4 and two over fifth-seed Cash Smoak in their match, and second-seed Billy Carol topped the seventh seed, John Allen Rogers,5 and 3. Number three Zach Doorlag also went 5 and 3 over eighth-seed Chance Smoak to set up the semis, where Donavon went 4 and 3 over Griffin. Carol and Doorlag swung to a tie on their semifinal match, forcing a suddendeath playoff where Carol took the hole for the win. The 11-12 Boys and Girls joined together for their match play and saw Joseph Flood go 3 and 2 to upset topseed Clayton Osha, while second-seed Ashley Engle won 3 and 1 over third-seed John David Spiegel. The quarterfinal of the 1314 boys saw some drama after first-seed Sam Rogers topped Coleman Nelson 2 and 1, and fourth-seed Nick Kresl went 5 and 4 over Morgan Devane. Because then, Sam WeberCallahan played second-seed Jason Cannon to a draw, forcing another one-hole, sudden-death playoff. Weber-Callahan took that hole to move on before fifthseed Jett Dexter also pulled a bit of an upset to move on, topping third-seed Andrew Wally, 5 and 3. Kresl then knocked off top-seed Rogers 1-up in the semis, while Dexter held off Weber-Callahan 2 and 1. The 15-16 Boys quarterfinals went the way of the chalk, with the top seeds all coming out with wins. No. 1 Cole Berger went 4 and 3 over Lee Hinote, Dustin Baber was 2-up over Easton Davis, Nic Staffieri was 1-up on Colin Kresl and in another sudden-death, it went to a third hole before SPORTS D SE CTION Inside This Section Miami investigation . . .4D F avre back on sideline . . .4D Manning comeback begins . .5D News-Sun Sunday, July 22, 2012 News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN Daniel Miller tees off on the eighth hole Thursday on his way to a win in the 17-18 Boys at the Bill Jarrett Ford Match Play Championship at River Greens on the Sertoma Junior Tour.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Aquatics hosted t he final local swim meet of the summer at the Lake Placid High School Pool on Saturday, July 14. The three teams involved were the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team (HHST Aquatics (LPA), and the Hardee Swim Association (HSA There were 115 swimmers c ompeting in the meet, with ages ranging from 5to 19years old. The Highlands Hurricanes won the girls and boys portion of the competition and the overall team title. Hurricanes swim to win See SWIM, Page 3D By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. Associated PressNEWYORK Tim Tebow will probably fling a few passes in bigm oments for the Jets this season. He might also run the ball a little. A nd hand it off, too. The NFLs most popul ar backup quarterback c ould also play some on special teams as the punt protector and throw his body around while clobbering returners. Whatever Im asked to do, Tebow said during minicamp last month, Im going to do it. And everyone will be watching. With plenty of scrutiny. Hes New Yorks notso-secret weapon and the teams biggest mystery heading into training camp. Tebow is not a starter and has no defined role yet, but is expected to be a major part of the offense. Hes listed as a quarterback Mark Sanchezs backup, at that but thats just merely a label as far as Rex Ryan is concerned. s a football player, the Jets coach said. eve said it for a long time. This guys an excellent football player and a great competitor Tebow also commands the spotlight. With his humble, awshucks persona and strong Christian beliefs, hes a fan favorite with the devoted following of a rock star. Billboards welcomed Tebowmania to the New York/New Jersey area after he was traded from Denver in March, and his green and white No. 15 Jets jersey is already one of the leagues most popular. The front of his locker was jam-packed with reporters whenever he spoke during the offseason. Again, for the backup quarterback. As for on the field, the Jets have revealed only this: Tebow will see plenty of action, likely out of a wildcat-style package, anywhere from a couple of plays to, as Ryan suggested, maybe as many as 20 per game. Its not necessarily a two-quarterback system, but rather, they envision Tebow as a souped-up version of wide receiver Brad Smith, the former college quarterback now with the Bills who wasu sed sparingly in the Jet wildcat for a few seasons. We were very effective running the wildcat a nd hes basically replaci ng Brad in that role, Ryan said. Hes also your backup quarterback and hes also your personal protector, as was Brad Smith. So there are a lot of things that you can get, not just being the No. 2 quarterback, that I thought was great for us. We know this guys a football player. Hes won a lot of games as a quarterback in this league already so we feel great about that, having depth at the quarterback position. But what does it all mean for Sanchez, who was labeled the next coming of Joe Namath a few years ago during consecutive trips to the AFC championship game? The challenge for Ryan and new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano during training camp will be to figure out how to maximize Tebows terrific athleticism while not interrupting the offenses rhythm or damaging Sanchezs confidence. That will be the key to a season in which the Jets are hoping to rebound from last years 8-8 disappointing finish and return to the playoffs. Ill do whatever I can to help this team win football games, said Tebow, who repeated that sentiment throughout the offseason. Ill give my heart and soul whenever I step on that field and even when Im on the sidelines. And at the end of the day, thats all you can really ask of someone. The Jets have made it clear that Sanchez is the undisputed starting quarterback and Tebow a backup wholl do a lot more than just hold a clipboard. But, can Tebow and Sanchez really co-exist, especially when the backup is the most popular player on the roster if Handling Tebows role will be challenge for Jets See TEBOW, Page 4D This guys an excellent football player and a great competitor.

C M Y K By DAVID BRANDT Associated PressBrett Favre is returning to football as an assistant high school coach in Mississippi. His agent, Bus Cook, told The Associated Press Friday that Favre will work at Oak Grove High School this fall to help out in some capacity, but Im not sure exactly what his role will be. The school is near the former NFLquarterbacks home in Hattiesburg, Miss. The Biloxi (Miss. Herald reported that Favre, 42, is expected to be the offensive coordinator. Oak Grove head coach Nevil Barr told the APhe has talked about a possible role for Favre on the coaching staff, though a job title hasnt been defined. Favre has helped at Oak Grove in an unofficial capacity in previous years. The three-time league MVPretired from the NFLin 2010. Favre, who grew up in nearby Kiln, Miss., has kept a low profile in Hattiesburg since he retired. He rarely does interviews, though he is occasionally seen at Southern Mississippis football or baseball games. Favre played in college at Southern Miss, where he also made his debut as a television analyst. Hes remained coy about future plans, but has often said how much he enjoys working with kids. Oak Grove is a perennial power at the 6Alevel in Mississippi, which is the states largest high school classification. Favre played for 20 years in the NFL mostly for the Green Bay Packers. He also played for the Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings. He is the leagues all-time leader with 71,838 passing yards and 508 touchdowns and won a Super Bowl in 1996 with the Packers.

Citing unidentified sources, Yahoo Sports reported Friday that former Miami football employee Sean Allen who has been linked to o ne-time booster and now convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro through the improper-benefits scandal that broke last year assisted members of Goldens coaching staff with recruiting. I f true, that could be a major NCAAviolation by the troubled program, despite Goldens repeated insistence that he wants to get it fixed. The inferences and suggestions in the Yahoo Sports story that my conduct was anything but ethical are simply false, Golden said in a statement released Friday night. G olden also said that he has been a college football coach for more than 18 years and stands by his record ofc ompliance. I, like all of us at UM, h ave cooperated fully with the joint NCAA-UM inquiry a nd will continue to do so, so that our program and our univ ersity can move forward, Golden said. Earlier Friday, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that NCAAinvestigators visited Miami for several days earlier this month, just the latest round of the lengthy inquiry into the Hurricanesathletic department. The people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because information about the probe has not been publicly released. Shapiros claims that he provided dozens of Miamia thletes and recruits with e xtra benefits over an eightyear span were published by Yahoo Sports last August. Golden is scheduled to discuss the coming season at the Atlantic Coast Conference media days in North Carolina early next week. A significant portion of Shapiros allegations from last year revolved around Allen, who was an assistant football equipment manager until leaving the program last year. Shapiro said he gave Allen more than $200,000, most allegedly spent on players and recruits, as well as a luxury car. Allen denied those claims t o Yahoo Sports in 2011, and has not responded to interview requests from the AP. Shapiros attorney, Maria Elena Perez, did not respond t o requests for comment Friday. She deposed Allen late last y ear, shortly before court records showed Miami e ntered into an agreement with a bankruptcy trustee to return $83,000 it said it received directly and indirectly from Shapiro. Miami has been bracing for additional allegations, and was aware earlier this week that they were coming. In an e-mail obtained by the AP, university President Donna Shalala told trustees Thursday that someone who had a low level position at one time was expected to allege that Miami assistant coach and former NFLplayer Micheal Barrow committed recruiting violations. Shalala said it has already been investigated. Yahoo Sports reported Friday that Allen tried to aid both Barrow and former assistant Aubrey Hill, who left the Hurricanes less than a month after Golden was hired and is now the wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at Florida. It cited Allens phone records, detailing calls he made to recruits often moments before or after calling Barrow or Hill. It also listed other alleged violations, such as Allen giving recruits rides to the Miami football offices or to restaurants for meetings with coaches. Some current players were l isted as having contact with Allen during their recruiting process, including standout defensive lineman Anthony C hickillo, cornerback Thomas Finnie and incoming freshmen Randy Duke J ohnson and Herb Waters. Chickillo, according to the n ew Yahoo Sports report, was taken to a strip club on his recruiting visit, and that the trip for him and former Miami defensive end Olivier Vernon was arranged by Allen. Vernon decided after last season to skip his final season with the Hurricanes and make himself eligible for the NFLdraft. Vernon was one of the players sanctioned by the NCAAlast season for accepting money from Shapiro. Its unknown when the joint NCAA-university investigation will end, said the people who spoke to the APon Friday. When the probe is over, Miami would first receive a notice of allegations, then have the chance to appear before the NCAAs infractions committee. Typically, when investigators visit a campus, they are either conducting interviews with athletic department personnel, reviewing documents, or both. The NCAAgenerally does not provide status updates during their investigations, and university officials only have said they are continuing to cooperate with the terms of the inquiry. Earlier this week, safety Ray-Ray Armstrong was dis-m issed for undisclosed rules violations. Armstrong was suspended for four games last year after a cknowledging he took money from Shapiro and then missed another game while the school checked to see if he broke other rules after he interacted with a person who works with professional athletes. Miami is also dealing with the sudden departure of former director of football operations Tom Deahn. So nearly a year after the Hurricanes became wrapped up in an extra-benefits scandal and with training camp fast approaching, along with ACC media days starting this weekend Miami still has plenty of questions and very few answers. Who doesnt want a clean slate? We get a fresh opportunity to do something new running back Mike James said earlier this summer when asked if the Hurricanes were eager to put the troubles of 2011 behind them. Hey, Im happy to see last year go. Its gone. Let it go. Miami could still face heavy sanctions from the NCAAover the scandal sparked by the allegations Shapiro in last yearsYahoo Sports story. Eight Miami players missed at least one game as part of sanctions the NCAA i mposed over Shapiros claims, and four others had to make small restitution payments. It was the first blow in an academic year filled with compliance-related issues. Mens basketball was hit multiple times, first with thes uspension of DeQuan Jones after he was linked to S hapiro Jones was ultimately allowed to return tot he team and then suspensions of two other players. Reggie Johnson missed a game after the joint compliance investigation showed members of his fami ly accepted impermissible travel benefits from a memb er of the schools former coaching staff. And guard Durand Scott, the Hurricanesleading scorer, was suspended just before Miamis ACC tournament game with Florida State after he was also found to have gotten unspecified extra benefits. Even Miamis national ly ranked womens basketball team had problems, with star guard Riquna Williams suspended for violating team not NCAA rules just before the Hurricanes went to the NCAAtournament. Without Williams, Miami was ousted in the second round. But those matters pale t o the ongoing inquiry into footb all, Miamis centerpiece program with five national championships since 1983. And its long been clear that the uncertainty what r ules were broken and how tough will the penalties be will linger into this coming season, just as it overshadowed every step of the 2011 campaign. ouve just got to go forward and put the past in the past, Miami quarterback Stephen Morris said earlier this offseason. Last year was rough for everybody, for every sport here. Im sure everybody is just excited to move on. Report: Goldens staff broke recruiting rules not the entire league? Fans grumbled last season whenever Sanchez made mistakes, and there were plenty of them as he threw 18 interceptions and lost eight fumbles. If that ugly trend continues, those same booing fans will be joined by the thousands of Tebowmaniacs who followed Tebow from Denver to New York and want nothing more than to see him start for the Jets. And what if Sanchez struggles and some teammates pine for Tebow Time, causing quite the conundrum for Ryan and his staff? Thats when Sanchezs confidence and ego will really be tested. I think our team does a good job of pushing each other, Sanchez said, and Tim only adds to that. Many fans and media think its only a matter of t ime before Tebow eventually supplants Sanchez as the No. 1 guy for the Jets. Its a situation that has been analyzed and criticized from the minute New York stunned the league by acquiring Tebow. I think we were the only people who never had a p roblem with it, it seemed like, Ryan said. We look at it as were adding a good football player, which we did. Is he behind Sanchez on the depth chart? Yes. Just like every team has a guy behind their starting quarterback. But he brings so much more to the table. In other words, forget that Tebow is a quarterback. Sure, he led a handful of jaw-dropping comebacks including a late 95-yard TD drive against the Jets while helping the Broncos make the playoffs after taking over for Kyle Orton last season. B ut the fact Tebow is built like a fullback at 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, and is one of the strongest guys on the team c ould benefit an offense particularly in goal-line situations that will take a runfirst approach, just as Ryan likes it. Shonn Greene is the starting running back, and Joe McKnight the change-ofpace guy but Tebow could take some direct snaps and rumble out of the backfield for big gains. There could also be moments when Sanchez and Tebow are lined up together Sanchez as the quarterback and Tebow as, well, thats for defenses to figure out. Sanchez, of course, can ward off any controversy by i mproving in his fourth season, and allowing Tebows presence to actually take some pressure off him by adding another dimension to the offense. Whether thats at quarterback, running back, tight end or whatever else the Jets can come up with. The things that he did at the University of Florida, all he did was win ballgames, wide receiver Santonio Holmes recently said of Tebow on the NFLNetwork. He came to the NFLand all he did was make a few plays and help win very big ballgames when people counted them out. I think hes going to be that same guy coming to New York.

C M Y K By ARNIE STAPLETON Associated PressDENVER Itll take some getting used to, seeing Peyton Manning with the orange-maned mustang on his helmet instead of the blue-onwhite horseshoe. The four-time MVPis making a comeback in the city defined by them thanks to another iconic quarterback. When John Elway decided to go after the biggest free agent prize in NFLhistory, the Denver Broncosbrassy boss was first in line to make his pitch. Then Elway gave Manning some space, figuring hed appreciate not being pestered with follow-up calls. It was a sign of respect from one superstar quarterback to another as Elway sat back and watched Manning meet with his other suitors and decide where hed begin his comeback from a lost 2011 season. I knew if I was on the market in the prime of my career, then thats the way I would want to be treated, Elway explained. Displaying the same icy resolve he demonstrated while leading the Broncos on all those fourth-quarter comebacks and to so many Super Bowls, Elway patiently told an ever-antsy coach John Fox one morning last March that theyd just sit back and wait for Manning to call them hopefully with good news. Just then, Elways phone rang. He took the call, gave his coach a thumbs-up and Fox jumped for joy, joking he nearly sprained both ankles during his silent celebration. When Elway hung up, they hollered and the rest of the coaching staff came running. Elways strategy had worked. Will his bold bet also pay off? The Broncos are betting $96 million it will. They jettisoned Tim Tebow a day after landing Manning, who was released by the Indianapolis Colts in March after missing last season following four neck operations. Indy will start anew with Andrew Luck. Manning moved to Denver, rented Mike Shanahans massive mansion and went right to work, rehabbing in the morning, throwing in the afternoon and poring over the playbook and film into the wee hours. During offseason practices, Manning showed no ill effects of the nerve issue that caused weakness in his throwing arm last year and led to his tearfilled divorce from the team and town he brought to the forefront of pro football. The euphoric Broncos say theyve seen no reason to go easy with Manning when training camp begins Wednesday. Although Manning insists he has a ways to go in his rehab, his arm strength looks good and his deciphering of defenses appears as astute as ever. What he lacks is timing with his new targets, and old pals Brandon Stokley and Jacob Tamme are on hand to help with that. Theres no question its been a big change, a big switch. Its one Im trying to adjust to, Peyton said at his familys passing camp in Louisiana earlier this month. Theres constantly something to learn, something to adjust to, new players, new teammates, new coaches, new surroundings. So when youre 14 years in one place, you do kind of become institutionalized. Everybody keeps saying, Are you settled yet?... I dont think anybody can get settled in a couple of months. So itll take some time, but Im embracing the challenge and looking forward to getting to know my teammates more and more. One thing he surely wasnt thrilled to learn about was the recent arrest of Pro Bowl pass rusher Elvis Dumervil on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following a traffic dispute in Miami. Another of Denvers stars, linebacker D.J. Williams, is facing a six-game drug suspension and an August drunken driving trial that could lead to an even longer absence from the Broncosretooled defense. These are important developments because a good deal of Mannings success this season will depend upon how Denvers defense does. Will he have to play catchup or can he play keep-away? Will he be leading furious comebacks in crunch time or directing clock-eating drives to protect leads? Will opponents spend most of the game dropping into coverage or blitzing? The Broncos arent going to want Manning throwing as much as he did in his last full season, 2010, when he averaged a career-high 42 passes a game. What will really keep that pitch count manageable is a strong ground game, superb pass protection and a stingy, opportunistic defense led by Dumervil, Williams, Champ Bailey and Von Miller. Manning said he still has more rehabilitation ahead and has stopped giving percentages regarding how healthy he is. But his goal remains to participate fully in training camp, preseason and the regular season. Like I said, I still have work to do, but certainly its nice to be back on the field. You know, 20 years of pretty incredible health, never having to miss a game, never in my entire life playing football, so last year was different, Manning said. At 36, Manning is eager to show 2011 was but a speed bump in his storied career and not a roadblock that portendsa dead end. I just know that he is going to play great football, Elway said. That is when I played my best football, the older I got, 37 and 38 were the two best years we had in m y career. I just know when you look at Peytons track record and his health ... he hasnt had any other significant injuries.I think with the way he plays the game, we believe he can play as long as he wants. On the day Manning signed on the dotted line, Elway was asked who is the best quarterback in the building? Elway might not have some of Mannings prolific passing statistics, but he owns two rings to Mannings one. Is he ahead of me yet? That is for you guys to decide, Elway replied. I know one thing, he has a hell of a lot more yards than I ever had, he has more touchdowns. The thing is, we are in the conversation, I would like to get to the place where he is the best of all time. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, July 22, 2012Page 5D LAKE DENTON CAMP; 3.639"; 5"; Black; july ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 0 0 5 5 3 3 STANLEY STEEMER CARPET; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 7/22/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 6 6 5 5 0 0 DR.

Berger then topped Baber 4 and 3 in the semis before Pooley, the third seed, nabbed a mild upset with a 1up win over Staffieri. Daniel Miller, the top seed in the 17-18 Boys, got quite a push from ninth-seed Blake Fitch, winning on the first hole of sudden death after Fitch had played him even over the first 18. Fourth-seed Colin Walkup won 3 and 2 over fifth-seed Kevin Ladue and second-seed Jonah Brown went 3 and 1 over Branden Fitch. But then Scott Cantwell pulled what may have been the upset of the day, as the 11th seed took a 1-up match from third seed Will Bennett. The momentum from Cantwells big win wouldnt last, however, as Brown edged him 2 and 1, while Miller set up a one versus two final with a 3 and 1 win over Walkup. The 14-18 Girls quarters went chalk as well, though not without some drama. First-seed Kendall Griffin went 5 and 4 over eighth-seed Avie Clark and second-seed Sarah Liles won 2 and 1 over seventh-seed Jayne Wilhelm. But while the third and fourth seeds, Savana Fisher and Lindsey Moffat, took their respective matches of Megan Crews and Meredith McKenna, both were taken to sudden death. Fisher won on her first extra hole, w hile Moffat was pushed to a third before taking the win. Which is why it might have played well for Liles, to take on F isher after a tough match like that, in her 3 and 2 win. B ut that logic held no water when M offat was able to bounce back from her close call to upset Griffin, 1-up, in their semifinal match. Sometimes the better player just plays bad and allows the lower seed to be able to upset them, but we know Kendall doesnt give anything away, Kesling said. Kendall played well and Lindsey just played better. Thats got to give her a lot of confidence in her game. For about a year and a half every time Kendall teed it up in Sertoma she never lost. Thats definitely a record for the girls, and I bet its probably a record for the junior tour, so congratula-t ions to both of them for a very well-played round. It marked the first time Griffin had been beaten on the tour in 15 e vents. The seeding charts having been s huffled every which way, the event c ontinued into Thursdays final round of match plays. Billy Carol topped Beckham Donovan for the 9-10 Boys title, with Zach Doorlag going 6 and 4 over Jackson Griffin for third, John Allen Rogers taking a 2 and 1 win over Cash Smoak for fifth and Josh Bible getting a 1-up win over Chance Smoak for seventh. Ashley Engle then won out in the 11-12 Boys/Girls with a 4 and 2 win over Joseph Flood, with Clayton Osha taking third with a 7 and 5 over John David Spiegel. In the 13-14 Boys, Jett Dexter c ame out in first with a 3 and 2 over Nick Kresl, Sam Rogers placed third with a 2 and 1 over Sam Weber-Callahan and Andrew Wally t ook fifth, edging Coleman Nelson 1-up. J ason Cannon went 9 and 8 over P erry Taylor for seventh and Hilton Teal won 3 and 2 over Jake Pendergrass for ninth. The 15-16 Boys saw another crowded field, with 14 golfers squaring off in matches Thursday. Cole Berger took a 3 and 1 win over Rhett Pooley to take first in the field, with Dustin Baber going 2 and 1 over Nic Staffieri for third. Colin Kresl got a 6 and 5 over Lee Hinote for fifth, a number matched by Ben Tubbs in his win over Easton Davis for seventh. Corey Franks won 8 and 7 over Bradley Brewer for ninth, Austin Oliver went 5 and 3 over Marcus Battles for 11th and Paul Cantwellw on 4 and 2 over Reed Woods for 13th. Daniel Miller made his top-seed hold up as he edged Jonah Brown 1u p to win the 17-18 Boys, with Colin Walkup winning 8 and 6 over S cott Cantwell for third. Will Bennett went 9 and 8 over B lake Fitch for fifth, Branden Fitch won 2 and 1 over Kevin Ladue for seventh and Terrell Williams got a 3 and 2 win over William Beattie for ninth. In the 14-18 Girls, Sarah Liles took the crown with a 4 and 3 over Moffat, while Kendall Griffin ended her one-round losing stre ak with a 4 and 3 over Savana Fisher. Megan Crews went 8 and 7 over Avie Clark for fifth and Meredith McKenna went 8 and 6 over JayneW ilhelm for seventh. It was a great couple of days with a lot of close matches, which is what its all about, Kesling said. And I cant say enough about the tremendous job Bill Jarrett Ford d oes out here every year.

Oh,there have been plenty of teams throughout the decades that won the state tournament championships and went on to represent Highlands County and the state of Florida in the Dixie W orld Series. The last two Dixie Ozone World Series champions,in fact,were won by the Sebring All-Stars. And yes,that core group of kids have moved up to the Junior Boys (age 13) level of play and claimed another state championship,which would be cause for countywide celebration on its own. But when you realize,along with them, four more Highlands County teams have won state championships this summer and are all in the process of preparing and traveling to their respectiveWorld Series, well,that takes it to a whole other level of pride and reverence.

C M Y K A familiar quote,credited to Will Rogers,reads,All I know is what I read in the papers.While a study of the newspapers may give a fairly clear chronical of events and may document the periods and eras of developments as a cceptable history,they lack a great deal of information. It might be difficult for the y oung people of today to realize that there was no radio,no television or other m edia that broadcast news every hour on the hour,giving daily reports and statist ics on unemployment,rise in crime rates,popularity of presidents,gross national product declines,high-jackings,market slumps, a dvances in the cost of living and other facts and dire predictions,most of which seem d esigned to have a depressive effect. Those who can look back over a span of half a century or more,to the first years of Sebrings history,will e mphatically contend that Those Were the Good Old Days. In the first decade after the first settlers arrived, the only medium of news dissemination in Sebring was the local weekly sheet,which w as primarily devoted to telling of parties,church services,new people coming to town and praising the advantages of the town-site, its climate,water,etc. A birth or wedding rated a headline on the front page although everyone in town knew about it well before the type was set. Communities,like people, have character,and like people,this character is developed in the early stages according to the guidance of those in power in the formative years. People who came to Sebring before the hectic days of the famous Florida Boom in the mid-1920s were primarily interested in a quiet and peaceful type of life. Practically all were religiously inclined and the towns founders who kept their promise of a free lot to any group that would build a church thereon encouraged this. The police department was more of a title than a vocation. The principle responsibility was to drive any roaming cattle and swine out of the fenced town. Automobiles were never locked nor were homes. Folks would go on a v acation for two or three weeks and find everything in place when they returned even though the home was left unlocked. If you think about it though,these still are The Good Old Days. Sebring is still a lovely little town, although of course it has grown,it savors many things from yester-year. People still say Howdyon the streets, and it is still a pretty safe place to live,and to this day holds many of founder George Sebrings ideals true. If the founder of Sebring were alive today,he would immediately recognize the downtown he conceived 100 years ago. The unique circle and spoke plan,the idea that all roads should lead to and from the center of the community,still exists today despite modern highway improvements. While it may be that historical records claim that George Sebrings circle planfor his downtown was based on the design of Heliopolis,an Egyptian city, there is no doubt that Sebring is an all-American city ... a city that takes us back to a simpler place and time. Downtown Sebring has been designated a 1920s Historic District on the National Page 2ANews-SunSunday, July 22, 2012www.newssun.com pub block; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 9 9 KAYLOR & KAYLOR; 5.542"; 1.5"; Black; below lottery social security; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 0 0 0 0 6 6 KAYLOR & KAYLOR; 5.542"; 1.5"; Black; above lottery general; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 5 5 3 3 8 8 J uly 18 137233344x:5Next jackpot $7 millionJuly 14 81931374151x:5 July 11 161926313950x:3 July 20 29122834 July 19 515161920 July 18 217323435 July 17 1012161734 July 20 (n) 6612 July 20 (d) 5071 July 19 (n) 8829 July 19 (d) 1940 July 20(n) 639 July 20 (d) 241 July 19(n) 544 July 19 (d) 733 July 20 318253610 July 17 71419331 July 13 418202612 July 10 512132911 July 18 25202357 PB: 3Next jackpot $110 millionJuly 14 416323746 PB: 13 July 11 522364955 PB: 23 Note:Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day:(d) is the daytime drawing,(n) is the nighttime drawing.

The Good Old Days Centennial Notebook By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Concerns were raised at Tuesday evenings city council meeting as a resident of the Las Villa Subdivision spoke to the council about p roposed amendments to the development agreement. Carla Rice,a resident and member of the Las Villas Homeowners Association, voiced her concerns during the meeting a bout a proposal from New Concepts by Visions,Inc. to develop on the southern end of the property. We saw notice that someone had come before city council and gotten approval to start looking at possibly putting something other than a residential area in the boundaries of our subdivision. We have a lot of concern about that ... to change the zoning to allow an assisted living facility would really not constitute the proper use for this type of property,Rice stated. Currently there are 14 occupied lots in the subdivision with a total of 150 lots,according to Rice. New Concepts proposal for development would use approximately 42 lots on the south portion of the subdivision. We dont know anything. Weve heard nothing. The people that have the plan havent talked to the people who live there at all,Rice said. Rice is also concerned that an assisted living facility being added to the subdivision will devalue the residents property and create a nuisance for residents. Rice presented a petition to the council,signed by residents of Las Villa, petitioning the city to disapprove of the developments in the area. Councilmember AndrewFells spoke Las Villas residents concerned about development proposal By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING A clarification of Fridays News-Sun article regarding the City of Sebrings investigation into Sebring Fire Department members is needed. International Association of Fire Fighters local chapter Union President Ross Edmonds has recently been under investigation by the Sebring Police Department. Edmonds stated that the four firefighters Robert Border,Ken Barefield,Brandon Albritton and Jim Bakernamed in Fridays News-Sun article have not had investigations opened on them,but instead were questioned and interviewed as part of Edmondsinvestigation. They were called in for a sick leave investigation on me. Those four guys werent under investigation,Edmonds said Friday afternoon. The News-Sun apologizes for the error and appreciates the opportunity to set the record straight. Sebring Fire Department investigations clarification By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK Former Police Michael Rowan contacted the News-Sun,through his attorney Robert H. Grizzard II,Friday afternoon. There is concern that a portion of the article Sparks Fly in APPD debatein Fridays edition are misleading. At issue is a statement made by Julian Deleon,Avon Park city manager,that he could not find any citizen complaints against police officers dating from any administration prior to John King becoming public safety director for the city. Specifically,in the fourth paragraph from the bottom of the story,on page 3A, Deleon is quoted as saying,Citizen complaints prior to John King were not available.Deleon is paraphrased as adding that it is too soon to draw conclusions. Written records may exist somewhere; it might only be a matter of finding them. Grizzard told the News-Sun that unfounded citizen complaints would not be a part of any police officers personnel file. Some citizen complaints existed, Grizzard said,but the last time Rowan saw them before being denied any further access to the building,they were in a drawer in (then Lt.) Kings desk. Rowan: Complaint files were left with King See LOOKING,page 6A See RESIDENTS,page 3A

In it,he appears (to some) to discount any credit business owners might take for building their own business. After watching the debate on this for a while,I found a link to the Washington Times my friend Tina sent me and actually listened to part of the speech. The website, along with the video, included a transcript of the relevant paragraphs. I include a portion of the paragraph that has everyone so riled up below: If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If youve got a b usiness you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen. Depending on your outlook,the President either asserted that nobody does anything in a vacuum (so say his supporters) or said that business owners dont deserve any credit for what theyve accomplished (so say his detractors). I listened to the speech almost three times (I got distracted during time No. 2 so it doesnt fully count). Ive read over at least one debate on Facebook. Even as I type this Im discussing the speech with a liberal friend of mine. Youd think that I would have a good handle on it with all that. And a firm opinion one way or the other. Instead,Im scratching my head and asking myself, Did he really mean to say it like that? Let me point out that I do agree with the President in part. Behind every successful person there is someone who helped them. As a writer,I can point to several people whom I could list as having assisted me in my quest to be a better writer. But does that mean I am not building my writing business? The time I put into it where does that f all on the presidents radar? The hours and sweat and tears that go into a successful business did the President truly mean to discount all that in saying people dont build their own b usinesses? Even if you try to say that he wasnt talking about that,he meant that business people didnt build the infrastructure that contributes to their success,I still have a problem with the statement. Business owners pay taxes. Said taxes,at least some of them,go towards the infrastructure. Roads and the like arent things the government gives to us we pay for them. So in a sense, we do help build them, because without taxpayer dollars they wouldnt exist. Of course,perception plays a lot in how you look at this speech. If you believe that Obama is unfriendly to business,you are going to see this as a slap towards business owners. If you support his desire to make businesses pay more taxes,you probably dont know what the fuss is about. The upshot of it is that whether he meant to or not, President Obama has managed to tick off a group of people already suspicious of his motives. As I type this he isnt backing down from the statement and his supporters insist the right is just misunderstanding him. I dont know. Its badly worded at best,and at worst dismisses those we need to provide jobs in this economic downturn as not deserving any credit for what they do. Id think we want to encourage business owners, not insult them. But what do I know? Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Cox is the man for the superintendentEditor: Each and every school in Highlands County has educational leaders,in the classr oom and in the administrative office. What we need is a financial leader as superintendent. Someone who can lead the educational leaders t hrough the money shortage and still be able to do the best for the students of Highlands County. That person is Wally Cox. I am retired from The School Board of Highlands County. I was an elementary school bookkeeper in Sebring. I was hired as a b ookkeeper while Wally was still the director of finance. W ally worked closely and patiently with me and the o ther bookkeepers,helping us understand the budget so we could get the most for our money to help the students and teachers. His phil osophy was and still is: Without the children and teachers,we dont have a reason to come to work. We need to do the best we can f or them. For sure,money is tight, everywhere,however,he has the financial expertise to continue to lead the school system through these difficult times. He has had to make many difficult decisions on funding. As money continues to be an issue, more tough choices will be made. I am confident these choices will be made with the impact on students foremost in his mind. Wally is the consummate servant leader. He works for the students and teachers of Highlands County. My grandchildren attend school in Highlands County and I continue to be involved in schools as a volunteer. Both my children teach school in Highlands County. I know first hand how the budget cuts affect them and their individual jobs. I also know how much Wally appreciates the personnel working for the school district. I feel very confident,that as things improve,he will make an effort to give back what has been deleted. However,without money,you shouldnt make promises you cant keep. Becky Bozeman SebringEducation makes the difference Editor: We are truly blessed in Highlands County to have the number of citizens who are willing to run for an elected office. The school board race for the District 3 seat is one of these races that will be decided by the votes cast on the Aug. 14 Primary. Both candidates are fine individuals and strong women. One candidate stands apart from the other due to her education credentials and educational experience. As we vote to elect individuals to the school board or the county commission it is important to remember to keep a balance of representation on these boards or commissions. By balance I am looking at the constituents that are represented by its members and the business that is conducted by the board or commission. Dr. Mary Ann Lewis will bring this balance to The School Board of Highlands County (SBHC) through her commitment to education, children and the community. Currently there is only one educator sitting on the SBHC. This is a board with a single focus,education. Dr. Lewiss commitment to education is evidenced by the degrees that she has earned including a doctorate from the University of Miami and the years of experience as a teacher and administrator at the elementary,middle and high school levels. Because of her love of teaching she continues to teach as an adjunct instructor at South Florida State College where she teaches the Master Student Class at the Lake Placid Campus. Through this position she can tell you exactly how prepared the graduates of Highlands County schools are for higher education. Dr. Lewis has a vested interest in our local school district. MaryAnn has two grandchildren enrolled in the school district,one at the elementary and one at the middle school; plus her daughter was recently hired as a teacher at the elementary level. Dr. Lewiscommitment to children and our community is demonstrated by her participation in the community. She mentors with Take Stock in Children,she sits on the Childrens Services Board, and she is a Guardian adLitem assigned by the court to provide a voice for abused or neglected children. As you go to the polls to vote,select the candidate that will have the shortest learning curve. Vote to elect the candidate that will be able to immediately be a contributing member of the school board. Vote to elect the candidate that will put our children first. Vote for MaryAnn Lewis Ed.D. Olivia Scott Avon ParkDistortion is part of politicsEditor: First off there is no such thing as Obamacare! That is a derogatory term cooked up by one of Mitt Rommels (sic) hacks as an insult to the president of the United States. The true name is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Since the Republicans have set a precedent with their Obamacarethat gives me the OK to also distort words/names. Theyre baaaack. Those ubiquitous political signs put out by all those wanabes telling you to vote for them because theyre better than anyone else,and if you dont believe it just ask one of them. One thing that is interesting and they all have in common,theres no indication of their party affiliation. Now I can understand a Republican being ashamed to admit hes a member of that group,but a Democrat should be proud because he/she is a true American. Theres a small Mom and Pop outfit in Detroit that borrowed a few dollars from the stimulus program,used it wisely and has paid back loans made to the company by the United States and Canadian governments. That company is General Motors,which earned a record $7.6 billion profit in 2011,the highest profit in the companys 103-year history.They sold 640,000 more cars and trucks in 2011 than in 2010 and took in a total of $105 billion. From CNN Money General Motors announced plans on June 22,2012 to add a third shift at its SUV plant in Arlington,Texas,as the company continues to ramp up production after deep cuts during the financial crisis. The additional shift will keep the facility running around the clock, and will generate roughly 800 additional jobs. Now,with auto demand coming back lots of companies across the board are adding third shifts. An advantage of third shifts is that they allow companies to ramp up production without constructing new facilities. GMs other three North American truck plants are already operating with three shifts. The companys North American operations are working at more than 100 percent of capacity,making heavy use of overtime and a third shift. If as Rommel (sic) says the Obama administration are the cause of job loss in this country and the stimulus program is a rip off of the public,how come General Motors does not agree with him? Whereas Massachusetts had a 43 percent drop in employment while Rommel (sic) was the governor. Sandy Oleesky Sebring It also seems to be mean-spirited and t he air is full of slung mud. Nationally,there are stories of drought in the Midwest. Corn prices are going up,and so is bread and beef. Storms seem to be coming out of n owhere; every day another town is wind-torn or flooded. Devastating weather has already hit our own county, a nd the hurricane season started less than two months ago. Statewide,there is a lot of talk about e ducation,or the lack of success,and how we fixthe last fixes that were i nstalled. Changes that leave more questions than answers when it comes to measuring the effectiveness of our s chools. Where do we go with the FCAT? How do we improve our childrens learning? Give them the tools they need to handle current problems and challenges? Is it possible to give them the knowledge needed to secure their own future? In addition to all the ideological discussion,we are faced within our own communities with tighter budgets and flared tempers over decisions concerning Avon Parks police department, Sebrings fire department pensions and recreation funding. The county is being forced to discuss possible cuts to civic and non-profit organizations that provide positive impacts to several parts of the communities they touch. Worthy groups,like NuHope and the Boys and Girls Club,that help the elderly and the youth alike,may be on the chopping block. There are also questions about leadership right now. Locally,there is maneuvering and doubt,debate and politics about how the top position for county administration will finally shake out. We know emotions and anger are running high right now. Fear,uncertainty and doubt are on the loose lurking,it seems,behind even a trip to a movie theater. So among all the noise and haste,the News-Sun encourages you to stop for a moment this weekend and be still. Take a moment to think about good times. Hug your kids,even those grown and out of the house. Laugh. Despite the storm clouds,remember we are halfway through this troubling year. Consider that the hardest parts are somewhat behind us now,at least for 2012. Hang on,we are over the hump. It is, as they say,all downhill from here. Its all downhill from here This year has so far been filled with a lot of discussion and rhetoric. Certainly that is par for a presidential year,but it seems to have started a little earlier and is lasting a lot longer.

My understanding is that w e approved the design and concept, and she (Barbara Cook) would have to come b ack to us anyway, Fells said. Cook is executive direct or of New Concepts. City Attorney Bob Swaine added clarification. There are a number of procedural things that would have to be done for this to c ome to creation ... It was just a straw vote, for lack of a b etter phrase, Swaine said. Cook was present to address the concerns of residents on Tuesday. Were still negotiating t hings. They (property owner, Neighborhood Lending Partners) have had a bid for proposal for the entire project ... but its a very soft bid. So they are not looking at it too hard at this moment. I am m eeting next week with the USDAon the funding portion o f it, Cook said. Councilmember Scott Stanley explained to Cook and Rice that the developer still has several steps to go before development can begin. It may just fall apart due to funding, but youll still have to go through the zoning board hearings and all the other hoops and public hearings so that the other residents have their voice and can be spoken at that time ... It wasnt a done deal, Stanley explained. John Clark also added that the city requires developers to meet with residents and neighbors of a proposed development area before any development can begin. The folks that live there will have several different times to express their concerns with zoning and public hearings, Mayor George Hensley said. They will be notified when they occur. If they ever occur, Swaine said. Rice understood the process and stated that the residents didnt want to wait until development was over to come to the city with their concerns. No action was taken over the issue Tuesday. New Concepts will continue to work on funding for the development and report back to council as directed.Zoning amendments approvedCouncil members also unanimously approved zoning amendments for the first reading of Ordinance 1335. The Community Redevelopment Agency and Planning and Zoning worked together to amend changes to developments involving modular homes and mobile homes in city limits as well as other items including landscaping requirements in the Downtown Mixed Use district and electrical transmission lines serving residential neighborhoods. Sebring Finance Director Mike Eastman announced at the close of Tuesdays meeting that the first hearing for the Tentative General Fund Budget for 2012-2013 will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 5 and the final hearing scheduled for Sept. 19. Eastman stated that the hearing will officially establish the proposed millage rate of 4.99 for the upcoming fiscal year a decrease of 7.5669 percent from the current 5.3985 rate.

C M Y K Register of Historic Places, and,according to the Sebring Chamber of Commerce,more than $16 million has been reinvested in its downtown over the last 10 years. The money has obviously b een well spent. The downtown has a fresh,almost movie-set look with Circle Park neatly manicured and the buildings restored to perf ection. To top it off,15 new businesses have opened in downtown since 2010. Its nearly impossible to think about driving through this c harming area without stopping to take it all in. If you are traveling through Sebring on Highway 27,you may miss the opportunity to visit such a lovely place. Its downtown where youll step back in time to find an eclectic mix of fashionable shops,boutiques,restaurants, antique shops and more. The towns small picture-perfect park at the center of town invites visitors to sit and enjoy a shady respite from shopping. Sebrings Cultural Center is within walking distance of downtown and includes the public library; the Highlands Museum of the Arts; the Highlands Little Theater,where great food is combined with budget-pleasing entertainment; the Sebring Historical Society with a wealth of information inside; the Jack Stroup Civic Center; and lets not forget City Pier Beach and Rotary Park,all for your enjoyment. On another cultural note, the second Friday of each month,the town Circle becomes the site of Destination Downtown Sebring,with a monthly event that brings residents together from all over. Destination Downtown Sebring is a group of active merchants who work hard every month hosting wonderful events in Downtown Sebring,as well as the Downtown Community Garage Sales. This volunteer group works hard to bring fun and excitement to downtown while still running their own businesses. Please show them your support. Downtown Sebring is loaded with events going on. Some upcoming events include the Sebring Cruise Car Show,held the second Saturday of each month,the Summer of Love Volkswagen Jubilee,the second Annual Hot Rods & Hogs,Sebring Thunder III, Run to the Heartland and many more. It seems that Sebring,the City on the Circle,isnt going around in circles at all. Our community has done well to preserve its past while embracing its future.

Thanks to the News-Sun for the opportunity to help us keep e veryone informed on Sebrings Centennial Celebration. Reference this article every Sunday and you wont miss a thing! Jen Brown is a member of the Sebring Centennial Committee. The Dark Knight Risesand t hen celebrate his first wedd ing anniversary on Sunday. Late Friday,Sullivans f amily confirmed that police told them he was among those killed. He was a very,very good young man,said Sullivans uncle,Joe Loewenguth. He always had a smile,always made you laugh. He had a little bit of comic in him. Witty, s mart. He was loving,had a b ig heart. Micayla Medek,23,was also among the dead,her fathers cousin,Anita Busch, told the Associated Press. Busch said the news,while heartbreaking,was a relief f or the family after an agon izing day of waiting for n ews. I hope this evil act ... doesnt shake peoples faith i n God,she said. A blogger who recently wrote of surviving a Toronto s hooting was also among those killed,the womans brother said. The death of Jessica G hawi,who was also known as Jessica Redfield,was a complete and utter shock, said her brother,Jordan Ghawi. He has been using his blog and Twitter account to update w hat he knew about his sisters condition throughout the day. He also appeared on the NBC Todayshow. Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said Friday evening at a press conference that the last of the 10 deceased victims from the midnight showing of a Batman movie was removed from the theater Friday afternoon. Oates said officers expected to get a confirmed list of the dead and meet with their families Friday night. In addition to the 10 people killed at the theater,two others later died from their injuries. Jordan Ghawi said on his website that a man who was with his sister at the theater described the chaos,saying he and Jessica Ghawi dropped to take cover when the gunman first started shooting. Jessica Ghawi was shot in the leg,her brother wrote, describing details relayed to him by a man identified on the blog only as a mutual friend named Brent. Jessica Ghawi began screaming when she was shot,and the friend tried to calm her and stop the bleeding,according to Jordan Ghawi. The man was then shot,but he continued attending to Jessica Ghawis wound before he realized she had stopped screaming,Jordan Ghawi stated. The man said Jessica Ghawi had been shot in the head. Jordan Ghawi said the friend escaped the theater after being shot twice,but he w as expected to survive. Jordan Ghawi praised the man,saying his actions are nothing but heroic. Jessica Ghawi,24,moved to Denver from Texas about a year ago and friends and colleagues described her as outgoing,smart and witty. She was always kind of a sponge as far as how she could be an even better journalist and sports broadcaster,said Peter Burns,a radio sports show host with Mile High Sports Radio in Denver, where Ghawi recently interned. Ghawi blogged at length about surviving the Eaton Centre mall shooting in Toronto that killed two people and sent several others to the hospital. Burns and his girlfriend,Lauren Anuskewicz,both said the blog reflected everything she told them. She was like,You guys w ould never believe what happened,Anuskewicz said. Jessica Ghawi wrote of the Toronto shooting:I was shown how fragile life was on Saturday. I saw the terror on bystandersfaces. I saw the victims of a senseless crime. I saw lives change. I was reminded that we dont know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath. Anuskewicz said Jessi ca Ghawi had been in Toronto visiting a boyfriend and it obviously was a very scary situation. And to be just so close to it,she added. Its just impossible to imagine that not even a month and a half later this would happen,and she would be involved. Its just awful. Yet,Burns said,Jessica Ghawi seemed more enlivened than intimidated by surviving that shooting. After the Toronto inc ident,I think she even looked at that like,Hey,even after that,Im able to pursue my dream,he said. Burns said he was close to her family. He moved to Denver from Texas a few years ago and talked with Jessica Ghawi about establishing a sports radio career there,he said. F ormer colleague Mi ke T aylor,a sports host at KTKR-AM in San Antonio described how she reluctantly changed her name for her career,taking the name Redfieldas a play on her red hair because it was easier to say than her given name. Jessica Ghawi was a prolific social media user under the new name. Her last tweet stated in all capital letters,movie doesnt start for 20 minutes.

C M Y K tion,my formalized opinion of your work product was high. I appreciate your cooperation and professionalism during a difficult time for you,the employees,myself and the city council. King joined the Avon Park Police Department as a lieutenant on June 10,2011. He was appointed Director of Public Safety on Nov. 30, 2011. At the time of his resignation,Kings salary was $65,000 a year. He has not responded to several phone calls from the News-Sun. Deleon wrote in a cover note to the press release announcing Kings resignation that, The documents speak for themselves. I have no further comments on the subject. Mayor Sharon Schuler told the News-Sun,I hold John King in the highest regards. I am very sorry to see him make this decision,however,I respect his convictions. John has helped bring this city through some rough times and has provided continuity between departments in the position as Public Safety Director. I wish him the best on wherever his future may take him. City Councilor Parke Sutherland,who was in hearings Friday,had been reached Thursday when Kings resignation was only a rumor. Having been in court,he said he was out of the loopand unaware King might be considering resigning. Sutherland said was saddened by the possibility. It would a loss to the city,he said. Friday,Deputy Brenda Gray said simply she had no comment. Councilors Terry Heston and Paul Miller could not be reached.

He has managed it since 1986. I went from being a regulator working with tax money,to being regulated in the private sector,he said. I just feel I know both sides of the operations. You learn a lot through experience. Having been on the countys Planning & Zoning Commission since 1988,and part of the group that wrote the countys first comprehensive plan,Brooks is up to date with land use issues. Brooks thinks the main problem facing the county is how to provide essential services in a period of decreasing revenue. His approach will to be to do his homework and listen to the taxpayer,he said. There has to be an open response between individuals and the commission.He stressed using common sense solutions. Brooks feels strongly that the county needs to work with private industry and business to create an atmosphere that encourages growth and creates jobs. My philosophy is based on whats called the Yellow Page policy.That is,if (the county) is looking to provide a service we go to the Yellow Pages and see if there is a private provider already here. If there is,the government doesnt have to get into it. Young people have to have decent job opportunities. At the same time,we need to keep what people like about Highlands County. We dont want to lose that small town feel. The reality is that only about 10 percent of the county is developed or slated for development. Our comprehensive plans have an urban growth area that surrounds e xisting infrastructure and should provide for our needs for the next 20 years or so. Brooks sees agriculture continuing as an essenti al economic component in the future. He has faith that the county will grow as a destination site. He said art and culture are as important as recreational opportunities in drawing visitors. I am not a proponent of big government,Brooks said. Government cant be all things to all people. It has a tendency to create more government. Today you could fill a room with state statutes and codes. Were never happy; we always want to add another layer. You used to be able to pull a permit in an afternoon, now it can take weeks. Government has to be practical. While government tran sparency is important,Brooks feels there is a benefit to be able to meet privately in certain situations. He does not believe the commission should micromanage. The commission sets policy; the administrator operates the county,he said. Continued from page 1A Majors (19-under),five teams from the Heartland are state champions a literal handful.

Both teams will open their tourney playing Arkansas at 10 a.m. Central time. These two older squads opened it up this year,making them county teams rather than one town taking on the likes of Polk County,which has been the growing trend. And so,rather than the Avon Park or Sebring AllStars,the Pre-Majors and Majors teams have been named Team Heartland and will represent the county in a true sense,with players from all three county towns among those on the rosters.

C M Y K LIVING B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, July 22, 2012 By Sharon ThompsonMcClatchy NewspapersTomatoes,squash,corn,peaches the summer is full of yumminess. But what to do with all these tasty fruits and vegetables? Check out our guide to selecting,storing and preparing your summer harvestMany of us wait all year for tomato season,when we can buy homegrown tomatoes from local farmers or pick them from our gardens and enjoy the smell and juiciness of a realtomato. Even though most any freshly picked tomato tastes wonderful,many consumers want heirloom tomatoes because of the flavor and texture that rarely can be found in modern tomatoes. Heirloom or homegrown,here are tips on how to select and store fresh tomatoes: A ripe tomato will be vibrant in color, plump and firm,and have just a little give. Sniff it if you can; if its missing that sweet,woody smell,leave it behind. Always look for tomatoes and grape tomatoes that are free of wrinkles,a sign of age. Keep tomatoes unwashed and at room temperature; putting them in the refrigerator can turn the flesh mealy. For maximum air circulation,remove them from plastic bags. To help speed ripening,put them in a paper bag with an apple,which emits ethylene gas,a ripening agent. Once ripe,tomatoes will last up to three days. For the smoothest slicing,use a serrated knife,which will cut through a tomatos skin without bruising the flesh. To remove the core,use a paring knife to cut around it at an angle. Real Simple magazineBack yard gardeners who grow zucchini and yellow summer squash often have more than they can possibly eat. The prolific summer squashes can be used in so many different dishes,that its a shame to think about giving the extras away. But neighbors will appreciate your generosity. If you buy zucchini a type of summer squash or yellow squash at the farmers market,choose small (about 6 to 8 inches long) and tender ones because both skin and seeds are eaten. The peel is antioxidant-rich. To store fresh summer squash,place it unwashed in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. Wash the squash just before preparation. The storage life of summer squash is brief,so use it within two to three days. Summer squashes have a mild flavor and pair well with a variety of herbs and seasonings. Because they are so versatile,freeze as many as possible to use during the winter. To freeze zucchini and summer squash for use in soups and casseroles,cut into 1/4inch-thick slices. Place in boiling water for 2 minutes,remove and plunge in ice water to stop the cooking. Drain well and pat dry between layers of paper towels. Place in freezer bags,label and freeze. If you want to make zucchini muffins and quick breads,shred the zucchini first. Make sure the zucchini is blemish-free and rinse it well under cold water. Do not peel. Once shredded,portion out the zucchini in the amounts you need for your recipes. Place it in freezer bags,squeezing all the air out and pressing the bags flat. Label and date. Sliced or shredded zucchini keeps about 10 months in the freezer. Before using shredded zucchini in muffins or quick breads (most bakers prefer zucchini), thaw it and pat it dry between several layers of paper towel on a dish. Let stand about 10 minutes and press down again,squeezing out as much moisture as you can. Shredded zucchini also is great for making pancakes,and zucchini and summer squash are great for tossing with hot pasta. According to Cooks Illustrated,you can seed larger zucchini and summer squash by rolling the vegetable and applying slight pressure with the palms of your hands to soften the insides and loosen the seeds. Then halve the vegetable lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a spoon. Ask any farmer or back yard gardener about fresh corn and theyll tell you the best way to cook it. Put a pot of water on to boil before you run out to the garden,pick the corn,shuck it on the way back to the house,and plunge it into the boiling water. Since most of us dont have back-yard crops,we must buy corn at the farmers market or grocery store. Well take it anywhere we can get it. Here are some suggestions on how to select,store and prepare fresh corn: Look for ears with green husks,moist stems and silk ends that are free of decay. Kernels should be small,tender,plump and milky when pierced,and they should fill up all the spaces in the rows. Keep unshucked fresh corn in the refrigerator until ready to use,wrapped in damp paper towels and placed in a plastic bag. Typical shelf life is 4 to 6 days. To steam:Remove husks and silks. Trim stem ends. Stand ears in a tall pot with 1 inch of water. Cover with a tightfitting lid and steam for 5 minutes. To microwave:Place ears of corn,still in husks,in a single layer in the microwave. Microwave on high for 2 minutes,turning the ears halfway through cooking time. Allow corn to rest several minutes before removing the husks and silks. To boil:Remove husks and silks. Trim stem ends. Carefully place ears in large pot of boiling water. Cook 2 to 4 minutes,or until the kernels are tender. To grill:Peel away the outer layers of husk. If the ears have many layers,peel off the first few,leaving a few layers for protection but allowing the kernels to caramelize a little. Put the corn on the grill as soon as the initial flames from the charcoal die down and the coals are still red hot. Grill the corn, turning often,until the first layer of husk is charred completely. Depending on your fire, this could take 5 to 10 minutes. Just before serving,peel back the husk and brown the kernels on the grill,turning the corn frequently.To remove the corn from its husk, cut the stem end up to the bottom of the ear and peel back the husks and silk. From the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension ServiceA basket of just-picked peaches will yield some of our most favorite summer treats:ice cream,pies,cobblers,shortcakes,smoothies,muffins and preserves. Sure,we can buy them ready-made,but the joy comes from peeling,pitting and slicing and turning the glorious fruit into something even more spectacular. Peaches should be soft to the touch but not mushy. Look for a well-defined crease that runs from the stem to the point. Dont squeeze peaches; they bruise easily. Place firm peaches on the counter for a day or two,and theyll ripen. Promptly refrigerate ripe peaches and eat them within a week of purchase. To keep sliced peaches from darkening,add lemon juice or ascorbic acid. Three medium peaches will yield 1 pound,or 2 cups,of sliced peaches or 1? cups of pure. As a general rule,avoid bruising peaches in the picking or preparation processes. The peaches should be ripe yet firm. Very soft peaches will not cook or freeze well. To peel easily:Submerge in boiling water,immediately plunge peaches into cold water. The skin should come off in large peels. If peaches are slightly underripe,allow them to remain in the hot water a little longer to loosen the peel. From Georgia peach grower Dickey FarmsILLUSTRATONS BY DAVE JOHNSON/MCT MCT ILLUSTRATON

C M Y K Dear Abby: Im married to the love of my life. My wife is a beautiful woman, 50 years old,in great shape and she looks 35. My problem is whenever we go out, if I ask her to wear something sexy for me,she always says,Im too old to dress like thatand refuses. However,when she dresses for work,she spends hours on her appearance and dresses very sexy. I have told her it bothers me,but she says Im being silly and she just wants to look good for her management job. Shes constantly buying new outfits for work. This morning she left wearing a sexy short miniskirt and boots. She is an independent woman who does what she wants. I dont spend my time trying to control her by any means. I trust her and seriously doubt theres another man. But I feel this is a matter of her not respecting my feelings as her husband. Am I wrong? Is there something else going on here? I need your help. Likes Her Sexy in Connecticut Dear Likes Her Sexy: Theres something sad about the fact that your wife doesnt want to put the same amount of effort into looking as good when she goes out with you as she does when she leaves for work. Rather than turning this into a power struggle,the next time you want to take her out looking sexy,ask her to just throw on something she would wear to the office and see if you have better luck. Dear Abby: I am 18 and will be graduating in May of next year. Because I have always done well in school, my family expects me to go right off to a big-league college. Abby,I want to go to college,but not right away. (I am also not too fond of staying in dorms.) I want to be a zoologist,and plan on going to school for it,but I feel that my family is rushing me into college because they expect it of me. When I tell them my other interest is hairstyling,and I may want to take a year off to do that to save up money,they put me down and compare me to my successful college cousins. I want my family to be proud of me because I have worked hard in school. I only wish they would be just as proud of me if I maintained a nice job for a few years and then went to college. (I have been told if I choose that path,I will never go to college and Ill never make good money.) They also blame my not wanting to go to college right away on my boyfriend of two years. I assure you, that is not the reason. I want to attend an in-state college, and I would still be able to see him. Do you have any advice? Schooled-Out in Colorado Dear Schooled Out: The longer you delay college,the more distractions there will be and the harder it will be for you to go back. Yes,people do it. But juggling a job and going to school is more difficult than going to school full-time,and it takes longer to get the degree. I urge you to listen to your parents. They have your best interests at heart. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Once again,I couldnt keep my eyes on the task at hand because the birds at the feeder captured my attention.Their variety and frequency of visits increased in nest-building springtime. Once the offspring arrived, there was no end to wings flapping as they hustled to feed their young. How marvelous when the tinier,paler fledglings came along to the feeder and gained confidence and grace in flight.Eventually their true colors emerged. During frequent summer storms,the fluttering of blue,red,yellow,black and gray wings and more frantic bird calls catch my awareness.Instinctively the birds prepare then fly off leaving our backyard still for a time. Later they resume their familiar habitsseemingly happy that God uses us to provide some sustenance. When viewed through the lens of nature,all the seasons bring simple pleasures.I never tire of this gift from the Creators hand. But,I need to remind myself of the same gift when I view my own lifes seasons. Not every memory is pleasant.Some seasons caused heavy-heartedness. But even as I scroll back,I see simple pleasures God gave to me. When I felt frantic to provide during some of lifes storms,God stepped in through unexpected means to remind me that he provides,not I. Through the generosity of others I was like the bird who gained sustenance at anothers feeder. During times of joy like the birth of children and,grandchildren God was there to celebrate with what seemed like all the colors of the rainbow blessing my soul. The simple pleasure of feeding a baby,of pushing a stroller,of watching the w orld through young eyes filled with wonder these and so many other simple pleasures have been and continue to be mine. Simple pleasures are also profound and,yet,can be taken for grantedbecoming common place when troubles press in and complaining takes root. Therefore,an attitude of thanksgiving needs to be cultivated every day. A 99-year-old woman on the radio advised that we should start our day writing down five things we are thankful for,continuing for a week without repeating.When the week is over,our attitudes will h ave received a make-over. We will then be able to declare with the Psalmist in Psalm 16:11,NKJV,You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

The collection includes close to 4,000 photographs taken by the late celebrity photographer Milton H. Greene. Some are well-known images,but Polish officials say they believe the collection might contain some previously unpublished works. The photos ended up in Polands possession as the result of a complex embezzlement scandal that shook the country in the early 1990s. A Chicago man accused of cheating Poland out of millions of dollars gave the collection to Poland in the 1990s. Poland plans to auction Marilyn Monroe photos

C M Y K Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO Tall and tan and young and lovely...Youve heard of her. The Girl From Ipanema. You might have come across the bossa nova classic while on hold on the phone, during a long elevator ride,or in a cafe in Beirut or Bangkok but youve heard it. Its been recorded by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Amy Winehouse,and survived bad lounge singers and Muzak incarnations to become,according to Performing Songwriter magazine,the second most recorded song in the world. The quintessential bossa nova tune,inspired by a young woman who passed the songwriters in a beachside bar on her way to the sea,introduced Rio de Janeiro to the world. Now, its turning 50,and to its legions of fans,the decades have only heightened its allure,adding a wash of nostalgia to this hymn to passing youth and beauty. I love this music,and had been searching for this place,said Venezuelan tourist Xiomara Castillo,who with her husband was taking pictures inside the bar where the songs authors watched their muse saunter by in the songs eponymous neighborhood. For me,Rio de Janeiro is this song,is bossa nova; the city has this rhythm,this charm,this sensuality. Indeed,the song carries within its chords and lyrics an image of a city thats light and easy,palm trees and blue sky,a sun-kissed life without care. Rio is in the levity of the song,its absolute elegance, the way it doesnt take itself seriouslysaid Ruy Castro,a writer and journalist who has chronicled the city,its music and its nightlife. This girl who swings so cool and sways so gently first stepped out in public on August 1962,in a cramped Copacabana nightclub. On stage together,for the first and only time,were the architects of bossa nova:Tom Jobim on piano and Joao Gilberto on guitar,with help from the poet Vinicius de Moraes,who gave The Girl her lyrics. Also performing was the vocal group Os Cariocas. Bossa nova was still young then,somewhat of a novelty even in Rio. The name meant new trendor new way. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, July 22, 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 CROSSWORDSOLUTION Recently,my family took a field trip to a few of our beautiful lakes. My son has a couple of pet turtles and our i dea of a great activity is going out in search of treasure to put into their tanks. Included in our last find w ere some tiny fish along with some aquatic vegetation. Those few fish have t urned into many more fish. We have recently learned that these creatures are mosquito fish. The reason we now have about three times the fish that we started out with is that they have live young. According to my research, t he average female may have a s many as 60 young. The a dult females have a 16to 2 8-day gestation period. The n ew brood are said to have an equal male to female ratio. It would seem that we w ill never run out of fish in these tanks. Once they are born,the tiny creatures are so small t hat you can barely see them, a bout 0.31 inches in length. Apparently they grow about 0.0079 inches per day.They grow fastest if the water temperature is from 75 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The fully grown female usually reaches an overall length of about 2.8 inches and the males about 1.6 inches. Males reach sexual maturity in about 43 to 62 days and females in 21 to 28 days. The average lifespan for these fish is about a year to a year and a half. Males dont live as long as the females. This freshwater species of f ish has been called the mosquito fish because their main source of food consists of large amounts of mosquito larvae,relative to their body size. These fish are actually named gambusia (Gambusia affinis) and are members of the family Poeciliidae of order Cyprinodontiformes. These creatures were introduced into many ecosystems in an effort to lower mosquito populations. Throughout all stages of life, these fish feed on the larvae of mosquitoes. Research shows that these tiny creatures can consume up to 167 percent of their own body weight on mosquito larvae. They will also consume zooplankton,small insects,other insect larvae and detritus. Mosquito fish have a grayish,silvery looking body that can,at times,appear green-brown with blue-gray sides. Their underside is white. They have a large abdomen with rounded dorsal and caudal fins. They have large heads compared to their body size and big eyes. Their heads are flat with an upturned mouth. The scales are in the shape of a diamond. Females have a spot on the rear of their abdomen and are much larger than the males. Mosquito fish are naturally found in the southern and eastern portions of the United States. They prefer shallow water where they are safe from larger species. They are quite hardy and can survive where other fish can not. They tolerate high salt concentrations,low oxygen and even high temperatures. They can be found in backwaters of rivers and streams where there is plenty of aquatic vegetation. Since they are not particular about water quality,they are also found in ditches, marshes,swamps,impoundments,ponds,marshes,lakes and even waste-water treatment facilities. If necessary, the mosquito fish can gulp air directly from the atmosphere. They can also survive in brackish water since they have a tolerance for salt. Now our pet animal count is even larger,but everyone seems to be getting along just fine in the habitats. As with all the creatures we adopt,we have learned much about these tiny but interesting fish and are look ing forward to many hours of enjoyment and relaxation w atching them in their watery homes.

DirectTV subscribers who want their MTV,Sponge Bob SquarePants or comedian Jon Stewart are getting their wish. Viacom Inc. and the satellite TV service provider said Friday that they have settled a dispute that had cut off access to 17 Viacom channels for DirectTV subscribers. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Channels such as MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon had been inaccessible to some 20 million DirecTV customers since July 10 as the two companies haggled over how much DirecTV should pay to carry those channels. A day later Viacom also shut off access to fulllength episodes on its own websites such as MTV.com and ComedyCentral.com to all visitors,even those who had no stake in the dispute. That was apparently in response to DirecTV telling its U.S. subscribers where they could find programs on the Internet that they could no longer watch on television. With viewers frustrated by the lack of accessibility, V iacom decided on Tuesday to let new episodes of The Daily Show with Jon Stewartand The Colbert Reportbe shown on its websites,easing the blockade of online viewings that it imposed last week. The move came a day after both shows resumed new episodes following a two-week hiatus. As part of the new longterm deal,DirecTV Group Inc. subscribers will also be able to see Viacom shows on tablets,laptops and other devices using DirecTVs Everywhere platform.

C M Y K By LYNN ELBER AP Television WriterLOS ANGELES Mad Men,a piercingly bleak portrait of a 1960s American anti-hero,earned a leading 1 7 Emmy nominations Thursday and the chance to set a new record as the mosthonored drama in television history. AMCs Mad Men,which has won four best drama series trophies and is tied w ith Hill Street Blues, L.A. Lawand The West Wing,received a fifth bid in t he category. Its insane. I cant believe i t,said Mad Mencreator Matthew Weiner. I cant believe we are on the air. I c ant believe that people dont call AMC A&E anym ore. Im so proud of the network. The miniseries American Horror Story,a nightmarish saga about a haunted house, r eceived a matching 17 awards,including an acting n od for star Connie Britton. Other leading nominees include the elegant Britishb orn soap opera Downton Abbey,which earned 16 b ids,and two miniseries, Hatfields & McCoys,with 16,and Hemingway & G ellhornwith 15. Modern Family,honored as best comedy series for the past two years,was the sitcom leader with 14 bids and p ractically ran the table in supporting actor nods,but the comedy realm also saw an infusion of girl power. Breakout comedies with w omen at their center in fashion after the box-office s uccess of Bridesmaids proved alluring to Emmy v oters. Girls,creator-star Lena Dunhams darkly comedic coming-of-age New York story,received a best comed ynod and acting,writing and directing nominations for her. Zooey Deschanels offbeat charm in New Girl earned her an acting bid. I have had the shriekiest morning of my life,said Dunham,as she arrived on set in New York to shoot the second season of Girls.I literally feel like I got asked to the prom and engaged and told I was going to the moon all in one day. Not to be too dramatic. I jumped around in my bed and I ran down the hall thats in my apartment building thats not even part of my house without my pants on,she said. Girlsis HBOs current spin on Sex and the City, which was a strong past Emmy favorite,said Tom ONeil,editor of the Gold Derby awards website. He called Dunham the current toast of Hollywood. Melissa McCarthy,who appeared in Bridesmaids, has a chance to repeat last years victory as best comedy actress winner for Mike & Molly. Emmy darling Julia LouisDreyfus,with past wins for Seinfeldand New Adventures of Old Christine,earned an acting nod for Veep,which received a best comedy nomination. Betty White,90,brought her veteran brand of female empowerment to the nominations,earning two bids best reality series host nod for Betty Whites Off Their Rockersand best variety special for Betty Whites 90th Birthday:A Tribute to Americas Golden Girl. White may have banished someone else from the best reality show host category:A no-show this time was perennial winner Jeff Probst of Survivor. Top nominations were announced by Kerry Washington of Scandal and by Jimmy Kimmel,who will host the awards and who filled in Thursday for Nick Offerman of Parks and Recreation,held up by weather-related travel delays on the East Coast. This is a sex dream,isnt it?joked Kimmel,ABCs late-night host,who arrived on stage at the TV academy dressed in pajamas. Jimmy Kimmel Livewas nominated in the variety category. The Emmy ceremony is scheduled to air on ABC on Sept. 23. Academy voters paid tribute to the late Kathryn Joosten,who received a supporting actress bid for her role as Wisteria Lane neighbor Karen McClusky in Desperate Housewives. Joosten,who had won two Emmys for the role,died in June of lung cancer. The shows other stars failed to make the Emmy cut for its eighth and final season. Hugh Laurie,whose show Housealso wrapped after eight years,didnt get a last shot at winning a trophy for his cranky Dr. House. American Idol,TVs top-rated non-sports show, was shut out of the best reality series contest for the first time in its 11-year history, although Ryan Seacrest was nominated as host. Its biggest competition in the reality-singing category, The Voice,did get a nod. Adding to the sting,Idol has seen its audience steadily erode and is searching for judges to replace Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. Competition for Mad Menand Downton Abbey includes national security drama Homeland,prohibition-era crime saga Boardwalk Empire, teacher-turned-drugmaker tale Breaking Badand the elaborate fantasy Game of Thrones,based on George R.R. Martins novels. Downton Abbey,which has earned ratings and buzz for PBS,was named best miniseries last year but was switched to the drama category this time around. The TV academys prime-time awards committee decided its continuing story line made it a series. American Horror Story decided to move to the miniseries category after competing as a drama series in the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards. Besides Modern Family, Girlsand Veep,comedy series nominees include The Big Bang Theory, Rockand Curb Your Enthusiasm. Big-screen stars who have a shot at the small-screen trophy for their TV movie work include Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman for Hemingway & Gellhorn, about the tumultuous romance of Ernest Hemingway and journalist Martha Gellhorn,Julianne Moore for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in Game Changeand Kevin Costner for Hatfields & McCoys. Rising British star Benedict Cumberbatch won a bid for his contemporary Sherlockportrayal. Sherlock:A Scandal in Belgraviaearned 13 bids as a PBS Masterpiecemovie. Mad Menstar Jon Hamm,who hasnt shared in his shows string of wins, will have his fifth shot at a lead actor Emmy. Bryan Cranston,the Breaking Badstar who denied Hamm the award three times before, was nominated again for his role as a teacher with cancer who gets embroiled in drug trafficking. Our show is like stinky cheese,Cranston said. You have to develop a taste for it. Also nominated were Steve Buscemi for Boardwalk Empire, Michael C. Hall for Dexter,Hugh Bonneville for Downton Abbeyand Damian Lewis for Homeland. Buscemi found out hed earned a nomination on a day he was scheduled to go to the Boardwalk Empire set. Im glad Im working today so I get a chance to see everybody,so that the nominations are still fresh. I think it will lift everybodys spirits today,he said. In the actress category, last years winner Julianna Margulies of The Good Wifeis joined by Moss, Claire Danes for Homeland,Glenn Close for Damages,Michelle Dockery of Downton Abbeyand Kathy Bates of Harrys Law. On the comedy side,Jim P arsons of The Big Bang Theorygot a bid and the chance for a third victory. Also nominated were Alec Baldwin of Rock,Lou is C.K. of Louie,Jon Cryer of Two and a Half Men, Don Cheadle of House of Liesand Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Among lead comedy actresses,McCarthy is joined by Dunham, Deschanel,Amy Poehler of Parks and Recreation,Ed ie Falco of Nurse Jackieand Tina Fey of Rock. The ensemble cast of Modern Familycleaned up in the supporting comedy categories,with Ed ONeill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson,Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestree t capturing four of the six slots and actresses Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara showing the flag for the women. Max Greenfield,who plays Schmidt on New Girl,won a nomination fo r best supporting actor in a comedy and was already thinking of the awards cere mony. Zooey and I are coordinating outfits right now,he said. Were trying to figur e out what were gonna wear. We obviously dont wanna wear the same thing. Can you imagine how embarras sing that would be? HBO had a leading 81 nominations,while CBS ha d the highest network total with 60. PBS received 58 nods,followed by NBC wit h 51,ABC with 48,AMC with 34,Fox with 26 and Showtime with 22.

For instance,Jeff Probst a lready has four Emmys for hosting CBSSurvivor. But did he deserve to get voted off the Emmy island when this years nominations w ere handed out? What about The Killing? Viewers were disgruntled by the mystery underlying this AMC drama, b ut you didnt have to care who killed Rosie Larsen to r ealize that co-stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman g ave two of the years best performances. Sure,Foxs American Idolhas slipped in the ratings,and two of its judges a re jumping ship. But does that explain why this TV juggernaut has been snubbed for a nomination as best reality-competition program for the first time ever? Meanwhile,Foxs House,which recently ended its eight-year run, goes empty-handed into Emmy annals deprived of one last chance for a best drama trophy,or a best actor nod for its star,Hugh Laurie. Other lame-duck series are getting a similar Emmy cold shoulder. FXs firefighter drama Rescue Mehas now concluded its seven-year run with routine Emmy neglect for this outstanding series and its gifted star-writer-producer. And ABCs much-honored Desperate Housewiveswill be remembered in its eighth and last season only with a nomination for the late Kathryn Joosten in the category of supporting actress in a comedy. FX scored big with its splendid comedy Louie and its creepy American Horror Story.But why not some Emmy love for Sons of Anarchy,the networks riotous motorcycle-gang drama that boasts a gang of wonderful actors,including 2011 Golden Globe winner Katey Sagal? Emmy continues to shrink from vampire and zombies. Again this year,both wildly popular True Bloodon HBO and The Walking Deadon AMC were shut out of major drama awards. HBOs mystical comedydrama Enlightenedwas spurned,as was its co-creator and star,Laura Dern, whose Golden Globe-winning performance as its scrambled heroine is among the best of her career. And while all six regulars on Modern Family snagged nominations,a fellow ABC comedy,Happy Endings,went unnoticed by Emmy,as did its six excellent co-stars. Not one,but two freshman drama series on the Starz network were overlooked: Boss,starring Kelsey Grammer as the tyrannical mayor of Chicago,and Magic City,set in the sordid glamour of 1960s Miami Beach. But both series will be courting Emmy with second seasons. With the broadcast networks continuing to cede Emmy glory to cable,Emmy seemed suitably unimpressed with last seasons new crop of broadcast shows. Only nine freshman series on the five broadcast networks got so much as a lone minor nomination,and only one,Foxs comedy New Girl,scored a major acting nod. In fact,it got two of them:for lead actress Zooey Deschanel and supporting actor Max Greenfield. But what about two other breakout hits from last season:CBSsitcom Broke Girlsand ABCs fairy-tale drama Once Upon a Time? Couldnt Emmy have made room for at least one of the funny Brokecostars,Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs? And why was Emmy blind to the spell cast by any of the Once Upon a Time ensemble? When it comes to Emmys, AMCs Mad Menhas nothing to complain about. The advertising drama continues its reign this year by picking up a leading 17 Emmy nominations. But, oddly,none of those was for costumes. Even though the series has never won in this category,it has landed a best costume nomination every year since Mad Men began. Why none this year? Viewers who savor the characterseye-popping s sartorial style have to be wondering. If Emmys annual bumper crop for Mad Menhas become ritual,another of this years big scorers is,by contrast,a big surprise. Hatfields & McCoys,a three-night miniseries that aired at the end of May, made history on fittingly History channel by averaging 13.8 million viewers as the most-watched miniseries ever on cable. Following on that ratings triumph,the program (recounting the famous interfamily feud) collected 16 nominations. Nothing to argue about there:This is the sort of out-of-nowhere surprise that Emmy watchers thrive on. Frazier Moore is a national television columnist for The Associated Press.

Nearly 18,000 cases have been reported so far more than twice the number seen at t his point last year,the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.At this pace,the number for the entire year will be the highest since 1 959,when 40,000 illnesses were reported. Nine children have died, and health officials called on adults especially pregnant w omen and those who spend time around children to g et a booster shot as soon as possible. My biggest concern is for the babies. Theyre the ones who get hit the hardest,said M ary Selecky,chief of the health department in W ashington,one of the states with the biggest outbreaks. Washington and Wisconsin have reported more than 3,000 cases each,and high numbers have been seen in a number of other states, including New York, Minnesota and Arizona. Whooping cough has generally been increasing for years,but this years spike is startling. Health investigators are trying to figure out whats going on,and theories include better detection and reporting of cases,some sort of evolution in the bacteria that cause the illness,or shortcomings in the vaccine. The vaccine that had been given to young children for decades was replaced in the late 1990s following concerns about rashes,fevers and other side effects. While the new v ersion is considered safer,it is possible it isnt as effective long term,said Dr. Anne Schuchat,who oversees the CDCs immunization and respiratory disease programs. Some parents in California and other states have rebelled against vaccinations and gotten their children exempted from rules that require them to get their shots to enroll in school. Washington state has one of the highest exemption rates in the nation. But the CDC said that does not appear to be a major factor in the outbreak,since most of the youngsters who got sick had been vaccinated. Whooping cough,or pertussis,is a highly contagious disease that can strike people of any age but is most dangerous to children. Its name comes from the sound children make as they gasp for breath. It used to be a common threat,with hundreds of thousands of cases annually. Cases gradually dropped after a vaccine was introduced in the 1940s,and the disease came to be thought of as a relic of another age. For about 25 years,fewer than 5,000 cases were reported annually in the U.S. The numbers started to climb again in the 1990s. In both 2004 and 2005, cases surpassed 25,000. The numbers dipped for a few years but jumped to more than 27,000 in 2010,the year California saw an especially bad epidemic. Experts believe whooping cough occurs in cycles and peaks every three to five years. But they have been startled to see peaks this high. Vaccinations are supposed to tamp down the amount of infection in the population and make the valleys in the cycles longer,said Pejman Rohani,a University of Michigan researcher who is co-leader of a federally funded study of whooping cough trends. The government recommends that children get vaccinated in five doses,with the f irst shot at age 2 months and the final one between 4 and 6 years. A booster shot is recommended around 11 or 12. Vaccination rates for young children are good about 84 percent of 3-year-olds have gotten the recommended number of shots. But fewer than 70 percent of adolescents have gotten all their shots. Most states require pertussis vaccinations for school attendance. In a possible indicator of a problem with the vaccine, investigators in Washington state were alarmed to see high rates of whooping cough in youngsters around 13 and 14. Whooping cough typically starts with cold-like symptoms that can include a runny nose,congestion,fever and a mild cough. The CDC advises parents to see a doctor if they or their children develop a prolonged or severe cough. Whooping cough is treated with antibiotics,the earlier the better. Health authorities are girding for what may be a bad couple of years. There is a lot of pertussis out there,and there may be more coming to a place near you,Schuchat said. CDC: Whooping cough rising at alarming rate in US HEALTH Metro Services Nearly 18,000 cases of whooping cough have been reported in the U.S. this year.

Kids today have it easier: As long as you can sneak your iPad out of the house, you can stay entertained until the battery runs dry. Who needs the wonders of nature when all you need is a few bucks and a connection to the App Store? Knights of the Round Cable(Chillingo,99 cents): The publisher of the original Angry Birds as well as such colorful concoctions as Cut the Ropeand Feed Me Oil is back with another wacky arcade challenge. Your character is a knight who bounces around in the sky while avoiding dragons,witches and other flying threats. You have one tool,a grappling hook that attaches to airborne anchor points,allowing you to switch directions,grab treasures or hurl yourself toward distressed damsels in need of rescue. Theres not much variety among the levels,but the designers have thrown in enough incentives like the ability to spend your loot to upgrade your knights to keep you coming back. Round Cablehits the iPad sweet spot:You can learn it in seconds and then find youve spent hours twirling through its castles. The Act(Chillingo, 99 cents): Edgar is a shy window washer who nearly falls off his scaffold when he spies a lovely nurse making her rounds. The Actfollows Edgars attempts to woo the nurse, both in his own imagination and in his more slapstick reality. Your control is limited:Swiping right on the iPad screen makes Edgar act with more confidence,while swiping left makes him back off. With its charming,handdrawn animation and simple left-right choices,The Actwill remind arcade v eterans of the classic Dragons Lair although it doesnt ask you to drop another quarter each time you fail. And since your mistakes are easily corrected,it only takes about an hour to make it through the story. Still,thats not bad for a buck. Amazing Alex(Rovio Entertainment,99 cents): Angry Birdsaddicts have been wondering what its developer,Rovio,would do for an encore. Theyre bound to be a little disappointed with Amazing Alex,a high-resolution adaptation of a physics puzzler (Caseys Contraptions),which first appeared in the App Store a year ago. Still,its an addictive collection of more than 100 puzzles in which youre challenged to assemble Rube Goldberglike machines out of shelves,pipes,springs,balloons,balls and other household objects. TECHNOLOGY ARA ContentLong gone are the days when TVs were a one size fits allproposition, when all you really wanted was the right s ize box for your living room:a picture tube TV with an unassuming appearance, only matched by its archaic remote controller. Today,the game has changed,and the choices of flat-panel HDTVs are a lmost as diverse as the viewing audience. With so many options available,how do you choose the TV that fits your needs,personal interests and living space? Often,viewerspersonalities and h abits say a lot about what type of TV is best suited for their lives. You can help r efine your search for the right TV by identifying your TV persona. The TV experts at LG offer some i nsight into fiveTV-watching personality types,and some tips for choosing a produ ct that matches your personality:The Videophile A nice picture and decent sound isnt going to do it for the videophile. These technological perfectionists pay close attention to details and optimal viewing c onditions. Videophiles want the best picture and audio quality possible, i ncluding a full backlit LED array that delivers a brighter,smoother,cleaner picture. They want a refresh rate that virtua lly eliminates motion blur and delivers crystal clear images. Like a new car t heyre most likely to show-off their shiny rims,or supplementary sound system,too at least a soundbar,but m ost often a powerful home theater system that blows the windows out of any living room. The Family Man/Woman This consumer desires a high-end experience at an affordable price. Other m onetary considerations like mortgages,day care costs and family vacations inspire them to seek the most bang for their buck when it comes to their TVs. They also need to please multiple viewers with content that pleases all ages from kids that watch cartoons to teenagers that want to get their video game onand parents that just want to kick back and enjoy a movie. They need a TV with options,one that offers 3D and Internet-connected Smart TV,like LGs LM6700. With six pairs of theater-like, flicker-free 3D glasses that require no batteries or recharging,outfitting the entire family is easy and inexpensive. Built-in Smart TV capability affords simple access to limitless content,including movies,TV shows,songs,live games, apps and personal video. The Internet Junkie/Multitasker Google TV will win the heart of this type of consumer,who enjoys Web surfing for information and uses a variety of streaming services. These technology devotees demand a TV that offers a dualcore processor that provides improved streaming and picture quality when streaming online content or browsing the Web with its Google Chrome browser. They like familiarity and want the same user experience on their phones,tablets and now their TV. They also crave the kind of user-friendly navigation capabilities provided by LGs gesture-based Magic Remote with Qwerty keyboard. Like an air mouse,it has point/click,a scrolling wheel and the ease of a keyboard,not to mention voice recognition, overall a familiar experience for computer lovers. The Bachelor/Sports Fan With fewer responsibilities,the singleperson viewer often has a little bit more free cash and doesnt mind spending a little extra on a big purchase. These viewers seek step-uppicture quality and faster refresh rates that helps them to view sports,video games and high-speed action with less motion blur. Theyre also not afraid to splurge on all the e xtras,such as Smart TV,3D functionality and built-in Wi-Fi and demand a sleek,aesthetically pleasing package that looks high end. The Recent Grad/First-timer These consumers have just finished college,started their first professional job and are looking for just the basics for their first home. A standard LCD or plasma TV can give them the biggest screen for less money. Bells and whistles and aesthetics take a back seat to solid picture quality. With a little research and a firm understanding of your TV persona,you can find the right television to fit your needs, budget and lifestyle. Whats your TV persona? Picking the set thats just right for you ARA Content Your viewing preference can have an effect on which TV you should buy. Review: Chillingos Knights storm across the iPad

C M Y K BUSINESS C SECTION News-Sun Sunday, July 22, 2012 WELLS MOTOR COMPANY; 11.25"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, new cars; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 6 6 4 4 7 7 By MAE ANDERSON Associated PressNEW YORK In almost every corner of the world, golden arches symbolize s omething. So does a red bulls-eye. The same is true f or a half-eaten apple. Ditto f or the well-known swoosh. The most iconic company logos such as those of M cDonalds,Target,Apple and Nike are visual cues that a re seared onto peoples consciousness without their even realizing it. That kind of influence has a lways been valuable,but n ow its priceless. Companies are fighting for the shrinking attention spans and wallets of consumers who increasingly get their information on tiny cellp hone screens. And as companies expand into emerging m arkets,images matter more than words. The brand ident ity that a logo brings can pay off,and companies k now it. Thats why Fords executive chairman Bill Ford described the day that the automaker got back its signature blue oval as one of the best days I can remember.The company gained back the logo along with other assets in May after having used them as collateral for a $23.5 billion loan six years earlier. Logos are a symbol of who you are,a rallying point,an identification of the company that lets you stand out from others,said Robert Passikoff,president of Brand Keys Inc.,a New York customer research firm that measures company image. Whats better,people like logos. LogosQuiz,a smartphone application that tests peoples knowledge of company logos,is one of the top free games on Apples iPad tablet and iPhone. And a short animated French film made up of nothing but logos called Logorama won an Oscar in 2010. That kind of hype translates into dollars for companies. Interbrand,which tracks brand values,of which the logo is a key part, v alues Coca-Colas brand at $71.86 billion; McDonalds at $35.59 billion,Nikes at $14.53 billion and Fords brand at $7.5 billion. Here is a look at how companies create and maintain iconic logos.Target: Hitting the bullseyeTarget Corp.s bullseye w as born when department store operator The Dayton Co. decided to open a discount chain in Minneapolis in 1962. Stewart K. Widdess, Daytons publicity director, w as given the task of naming the company so shoppers w ouldnt confuse it with the department-store chain. After considering 200 other names,Widdess came up with both the name Target and the now ubiquitous redand-white bullseye. As a marksmans goal is to hit the center bulls-eye, the new store would do much the same in terms of retail goods,services,commitment to the community, price,value and overall Your logo here How a logo becomes an icon See LOGOS,page 6C Its no secret that health care costs have been spiraling out of control for years. To fight back, your best bet is to be a well-informed consumer:Know the true costs of medical procedures,supplies and medications so you can bargain effectively; carefully anticipate and track medical expenses; and stay on top of your bills. But sometimes,even when you follow the rules you still can get burned. Ive heard many appalling stories about people even those with comprehensive insurance who have been denied benefits,overcharged,sent to collections or even forced to file for bankruptcy because they couldnt pay their medical bills. Here are a few coping strategies: Carefully review each doctor,lab or hospital bill and match it against the Explanation of Benefits statement that shows how much they were reimbursed by the insurance company. Also,watch for items that may have been charged to you by mistake such as: Medications,supplies, treatments or meals you didnt receive while hospitalized or getting an outpatient procedure. Duplicate charges for a single procedure (such as x-rays, MRIs and lab work),including those that had to be redone due to a technician's error. Charges for a full days hospitalization when you checked out early; or private room rates when you shared a suite. The summary hospital bill you were sent probably doesnt contain many details,so ask for an itemized bill along with a copy of your medical chart and a pharmacy ledger showing which drugs you were given during your stay. If youre having difficulty paying a medical bill, dont simply ignore it. Like any creditor,doctors and hospitals often turn unpaid bills over to collection agencies,which will wreak havoc with your credit score. Contact creditors as soon as possible,explain your situation and ask them to set up an installment payment plan or work out a reduced rate. Many people with no insurance discover that What happens when you cant pay your medical bills? Personal Finance Jason Alderman See HOW,page 2CCLASSIFIED PAGE3C

Dont be afraid to ask for those lower rates and to work out a repayment plan just be sure to get the agreement in writing. Most doctors and hospitals would rather accept reduced payments than have to deal with collection agencies and possibly no reimbursement at all. Ask the hospitals patient liaison to review your case and see whether you qualify for financial assistance from the government,a charitable organization or the hospital itself. Most will forgive some or all bills for people whose income falls below certain amounts tied to federal poverty levels. Also pursue this avenue with your doctor or other provider ideally before theyve begun collections. A few additional cost-savings tips: Ask whether your employer offers flexible spending accounts,which let you pay for eligible out-ofpocket health care and/or dependent care expenses on a pre-tax basis. Use online price-comparison services like Healthcare Blue Book and OutofPocket.com to research going rates for a variety of medical services. Unless its a true emergency,try to avoid emergency rooms and use an urgent care network facility affiliated with your insurance company or ask your doctor for recommendations. Bottom line:Know what health services cost and dont be afraid to negotiate. Youll haggle over the price of a car why not your health? Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

Florida Hospital crew helps at Habitat home By JILL LAWLESS Associated PressLONDON Not just a sporting event,the Olympics present a fashion dilemma. T hat Pepsi T-shirt and Nike sneakers may seem perfect for a trip to Olympic Park but will they fall foul of the brand police? Olympic organizers scrambled Friday to clarify their restrictions on branding,after the head of the London games suggested a shirt beari ng the logo of Pepsi rival to Olympic sponsor CocaC ola would probably be banned from Olympic venu es. No,you probably wouldnt be walking in with a Pepsi T-shirt because Coca-Cola are our sponsors and they h ave put millions of pounds (dollars) into this project but also millions of pounds (dollars) into grass roots sport, games chief Sebastian Coe told BBC radio. It is important to protect those sponsors. Rubbish,says the London organizing committee the very body that Coe heads. Any individual coming into our venues can wear any item of clothing,branded or otherwise,the committee said in a mythbusterfact sheet. But,it added,there could be a problem if large groups come in together wearing clearly visible branding/mark eting.That could be classed as ambush marketingby non-sponsors,a definite no-no. Organizers want to head off stunts like the one at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa,when the Bavaria brewing company outfitted some 30 Dutch women in mini-dresses in its trademark orange for the Netherlands opening game against Denmark. Adidas is another big sponsor,but Coe told the BBC that visitors wearing Nike sneakers would probablybe allowed in. The organizing committee insists Nike shoes are definitely OK for spectators but not necessarily for games staff or participants. Guidelines sent to children who will be forming a guard of honor for the athletes parade on July 27 have been advised to wear unbranded or Adidas shoes. The confusion follows a swirl of rumors about the events complex commercial rules,including reports of visitors to Olympic Park being forced to carry their potato chips in a clear plastic bag because the brand was not an Olympic sponsor. Pepsi or Coke? Olympic brand rules sow confusion How to stay on top of your medical bills Metro There are many strategies to help keep medical bills from ruining your financial well being. By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics WriterWASHINGTON Unemployment rates rose in 27 U.S. states last month, the most in almost a year and a reflection of weaker hiring nationwide. The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates fell in 11 states and Washington,D.C. the fewest since August. Rates were unchanged in 12 states. Nationwide,employers added only 80,000 jobs last month,the third straight month of weak job growth. The national unemployment rate stayed at 8.2 percent. Still,29 states added jobs in June,up from 27 in May. Unemployment rates can rise even if more jobs are created if more of those out of work start looking for jobs. The number of Americans searching for jobs nationwide increased last month. Nevada recorded the highest unemployment rate, at 11.6 percent,the same as the previous month. It was followed by Rhode Island at 10.9 percent and California at 10.7 percent North Dakota had the lowest unemployment rate at 2.9 percent. It followed by Nebraska at 3.8 percent. Several states reported big increases in unemployment. Rates rose 0.4 percentage points in Alabama and New Jersey,to 7.8 percent and 9.6 percent,respectively. Some states kept hiring at a healthy pace in June. California added 38,300 jobs and Ohio added 18,400, after similar gains in both states in May.And North Carolina rebounded after losing jobs in May,adding 16,900 jobs last month. Still others lost jobs. Wisconsin shed 13,200 positions,the most of any state. It was followed by T ennessee,where employers cut 12,100 jobs. The economy is struggling to generate enough growth to boost hiring and consumer spending from subpar levels. Job growth slowed to 75,000 a month from April through June. Unemployment rates rose in 27 states in June

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe Sertoma Junior Tour took a different tact this week, going from regular round play to the two-day, Bill Jarrett Ford Match Play Championships at the River Greens golf course. Rather than taking on the course itself, match play forces the players to focus more on their opponent in t rying to win each hole. Its a different mindset for t hese kids and its a great e xperience for them for other events down the road, tour director Andy Kesling said. This is my favorite event of the year. But while the focus may go more toward an opponent in match play, the course does play a factor, which is where the nuances of River Greens came into play. River Greens is kind of unique in the fact that there is a lot of out-of-bounds, so you need to hit it straight, Kesling said. And then when you get on the green you have to be able to putt because there is a lot of slope in these greens. And so off they went in Wednesdays quarterfinal and semifinal matches in each age group. Top-seed Beckham Donovan got a push from ninth-seed Josh Bible before taking a 2 and 1 win in the 910 Boys quarterfinal. Jackson Griffin, the fourth seed, went 4 and two over fifth-seed Cash Smoak in their match, and second-seed Billy Carol topped the seventh seed, John Allen Rogers, 5 and 3. Number three Zach Doorlag also went 5 and 3 over eighth-seed Chance Smoak to set up the semis, where Donavon went 4 and 3 over Griffin. Carol and Doorlag swung to a tie on their semifinal match, forcing a suddendeath playoff where Carol took the hole for the win. The 11-12 Boys and Girls joined together for their match play and saw Joseph Flood go 3 and 2 to upset topseed Clayton Osha, while second-seed Ashley Engle won 3 and 1 over third-seed John David Spiegel. The quarterfinal of the 1314 boys saw some drama after first-seed Sam Rogers topped Coleman Nelson 2 and 1, and fourth-seed Nick Kresl went 5 and 4 over Morgan Devane. Because then, Sam WeberCallahan played second-seed Jason Cannon to a draw, forcing another one-hole, sudden-death playoff. Weber-Callahan took that hole to move on before fifthseed Jett Dexter also pulled a bit of an upset to move on, topping third-seed Andrew Wally, 5 and 3. Kresl then knocked off top-seed Rogers 1-up in the semis, while Dexter held off Weber-Callahan 2 and 1. The 15-16 Boys quarterfinals went the way of the chalk, with the top seeds all coming out with wins. No. 1 Cole Berger went 4 and 3 over Lee Hinote, Dustin Baber was 2-up over Easton Davis, Nic Staffieri was 1-up on Colin Kresl and in another sudden-death, it went to a third hole before SPORTS D SECTION Inside This Section Miami investigation . . .4D Favre back on sideline . . .4D Manning comeback begins . .5D News-Sun Sunday, July 22, 2012 News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN Daniel Miller tees off on the eighth hole Thursday on his way to a win in the 17-18 Boys at the Bill Jarrett Ford Match Play Championship at River Greens on the Sertoma Junior Tour.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Aquatics hosted t he final local swim meet of the summer at the Lake Placid High School Pool on Saturday, July 14. The three teams involved were the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team (HHST), Lake Placid Aquatics (LPA), and the Hardee Swim Association (HSA). There were 115 swimmers competing in the meet, with ages ranging from 5to 19years old. The Highlands Hurricanes won the girls and boys portion of the competition and the overall team title. Hurricanes swim to win See SWIM, Page 3D By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. Associated PressNEWYORK Tim Tebow will probably fling a few passes in big moments for the Jets this season. He might also run the ball a little. And hand it off, too. The NFLs most popular backup quarterback could also play some on special teams as the punt protector and throw his body around while clobbering returners. Whatever Im asked to do, Tebow said during minicamp last month, Im going to do it. And everyone will be watching. With plenty of scrutiny. Hes New Yorks notso-secret weapon and the teams biggest mystery heading into training camp. Tebow is not a starter and has no defined role yet, but is expected to be a major part of the offense. Hes listed as a quarterback Mark Sanchezs backup, at that but thats just merely a label as far as Rex Ryan is concerned. Hes a football player, the Jets coach said. Weve said it for a long time. This guys an excellent football player and a great competitor. Tebow also commands the spotlight. With his humble, awshucks persona and strong Christian beliefs, hes a fan favorite with the devoted following of a rock star. Billboards welcomed Tebowmania to the New York/New Jersey area after he was traded from Denver in March, and his green and white No. 15 Jets jersey is already one of the leagues most popular. The front of his locker was jam-packed with reporters whenever he spoke during the offseason. Again, for the backup quarterback. As for on the field, the Jets have revealed only this: Tebow will see plenty of action, likely out of a wildcat-style package, anywhere from a couple of plays to, as Ryan suggested, maybe as many as 20 per game. Its not necessarily a two-quarterback system, but rather, they envision Tebow as a souped-up version of wide receiver Brad Smith, the former college quarterback now with the Bills who was used sparingly in the Jet s wildcat for a few seasons. We were very effective running the wildcat and hes basically replacing Brad in that role, Ryan said. Hes also your backup quarterback and hes also your personal protector, as was Brad Smith. So there are a lot of things that you can get, not just being the No. 2 quarterback, that I thought was great for us. We know this guys a football player. Hes won a lot of games as a quarterback in this league already so we feel great about that, having depth at the quarterback position. But what does it all mean for Sanchez, who was labeled the next coming of Joe Namath a few years ago during consecutive trips to the AFC championship game? The challenge for Ryan and new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano during training camp will be to figure out how to maximize Tebows terrific athleticism while not interrupting the offenses rhythm or damaging Sanchezs confidence. That will be the key to a season in which the Jets are hoping to rebound from last years 8-8 disappointing finish and return to the playoffs. Ill do whatever I can to help this team win football games, said Tebow, who repeated that sentiment throughout the offseason. Ill give my heart and soul whenever I step on that field and even when Im on the sidelines. And at the end of the day, thats all you can really ask of someone. The Jets have made it clear that Sanchez is the undisputed starting quarterback and Tebow a backup wholl do a lot more than just hold a clipboard. But, can Tebow and Sanchez really co-exist, especially when the backup is the most popular player on the roster if Handling Tebows role will be challenge for Jets See TEBOW, Page 4D This guys an excellent football player and a great competitor.

After weeks of unseasonably chilly temperatures and miserable rain, the sun came out Saturday as thousands of people turned out to watch the flame begin its seven-day trip of the Olympic host city. The torch arrived late Friday in the city with a dramatic entrance, abseiled from a helicopter by a Royal Marine to the Tower of London on the shore of the River Thames. After a night locked inside the Jewel House of the 11th century landmark, the torch started a journey through London that took it from a historic ship to a shiny new shopping mall. From the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the torch was carried to the Cutty Sark, a newly restored 140-year-old ship docked in the Thames. Phillips Idowu, a champion triple jumper for Team Great Britain, then took the torch to the Westfield mall, Europes biggest, next to the Olympic Park. Saturdays torch relay also included stints from London's youngest and oldest torchbearers: 12-year-old Chester Chambers, and 101year-old Fauja Singh. Like most other torchbearers, they were nominated by their communities.

C M Y K By DAVID BRANDT Associated PressBrett Favre is returning to football as an assistant high school coach in Mississippi. His agent, Bus Cook, told The Associated Press Friday that Favre will work at Oak Grove High School this fall to help out in some capacity, but Im not sure exactly what his role will be. The school is near the former NFLquarterbacks home in Hattiesburg, Miss. The Biloxi (Miss.) SunHerald reported that Favre, 42, is expected to be the offensive coordinator. Oak Grove head coach Nevil Barr told the APhe has talked about a possible role for Favre on the coaching staff, though a job title hasnt been defined. Favre has helped at Oak Grove in an unofficial capacity in previous years. The three-time league MVPretired from the NFLin 2010. Favre, who grew up in nearby Kiln, Miss., has kept a low profile in Hattiesburg since he retired. He rarely does interviews, though he is occasionally seen at Southern Mississippis football or baseball games. Favre played in college at Southern Miss, where he also made his debut as a television analyst. Hes remained coy about future plans, but has often said how much he enjoys working with kids. Oak Grove is a perennial power at the 6Alevel in Mississippi, which is the states largest high school classification. Favre played for 20 years in the NFL mostly for the Green Bay Packers. He also played for the Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings. He is the leagues all-time leader with 71,838 passing yards and 508 touchdowns and won a Super Bowl in 1996 with the Packers.

Citing unidentified sources, Yahoo Sports reported Friday that former Miami football employee Sean Allen who has been linked to o ne-time booster and now convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro through the improper-benefits scandal that broke last year assisted members of Goldens coaching staff with recruiting. If true, that could be a major NCAAviolation by the troubled program, despite Goldens repeated insistence that he wants to get it fixed. The inferences and suggestions in the Yahoo Sports story that my conduct was anything but ethical are simply false, Golden said in a statement released Friday night. Golden also said that he has been a college football coach for more than 18 years and stands by his record of c ompliance. I, like all of us at UM, h ave cooperated fully with the joint NCAA-UM inquiry a nd will continue to do so, so that our program and our univ ersity can move forward, Golden said. Earlier Friday, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that NCAAinvestigators visited Miami for several days earlier this month, just the latest round of the lengthy inquiry into the Hurricanesathletic department. The people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because information about the probe has not been publicly released. Shapiros claims that he provided dozens of Miami athletes and recruits with extra benefits over an eightyear span were published by Yahoo Sports last August. Golden is scheduled to discuss the coming season at the Atlantic Coast Conference media days in North Carolina early next week. A significant portion of Shapiros allegations from last year revolved around Allen, who was an assistant football equipment manager until leaving the program last year. Shapiro said he gave Allen more than $200,000, most allegedly spent on players and recruits, as well as a luxury car. Allen denied those claims to Yahoo Sports in 2011, and has not responded to interview requests from the AP. Shapiros attorney, Maria Elena Perez, did not respond to requests for comment Friday. She deposed Allen late last year, shortly before court records showed Miami entered into an agreement with a bankruptcy trustee to return $83,000 it said it received directly and indirectly from Shapiro. Miami has been bracing for additional allegations, and was aware earlier this week that they were coming. In an e-mail obtained by the AP, university President Donna Shalala told trustees Thursday that someone who had a low level position at one time was expected to allege that Miami assistant coach and former NFLplayer Micheal Barrow committed recruiting violations. Shalala said it has already been investigated. Yahoo Sports reported Friday that Allen tried to aid both Barrow and former assistant Aubrey Hill, who left the Hurricanes less than a month after Golden was hired and is now the wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at Florida. It cited Allens phone records, detailing calls he made to recruits often moments before or after calling Barrow or Hill. It also listed other alleged violations, such as Allen giving recruits rides to the Miami football offices or to restaurants for meetings with coaches. Some current players were listed as having contact with Allen during their recruiting process, including standout defensive lineman Anthony Chickillo, cornerback Thomas Finnie and incoming freshmen Randy Duke Johnson and Herb Waters. Chickillo, according to the new Yahoo Sports report, was taken to a strip club on his recruiting visit, and that the trip for him and former Miami defensive end Olivier Vernon was arranged by Allen. Vernon decided after last season to skip his final season with the Hurricanes and make himself eligible for the NFLdraft. Vernon was one of the players sanctioned by the NCAAlast season for accepting money from Shapiro. Its unknown when the joint NCAA-university investigation will end, said the people who spoke to the APon Friday. When the probe is over, Miami would first receive a notice of allegations, then have the chance to appear before the NCAAs infractions committee. Typically, when investigators visit a campus, they are either conducting interviews with athletic department personnel, reviewing documents, or both. The NCAAgenerally does not provide status updates during their investigations, and university officials only have said they are continuing to cooperate with the terms of the inquiry. Earlier this week, safety Ray-Ray Armstrong was dismissed for undisclosed rules violations. Armstrong was suspended for four games last year after acknowledging he took money from Shapiro and then missed another game while the school checked to see if he broke other rules after he interacted with a person who works with professional athletes. Miami is also dealing with the sudden departure of former director of football operations Tom Deahn. So nearly a year after the Hurricanes became wrapped up in an extra-benefits scandal and with training camp fast approaching, along with ACC media days starting this weekend Miami still has plenty of questions and very few answers. Who doesnt want a clean slate? We get a fresh opportunity to do something new, running back Mike James said earlier this summer when asked if the Hurricanes were eager to put the troubles of 2011 behind them. Hey, Im happy to see last year go. Its gone. Let it go. Miami could still face heavy sanctions from the NCAAover the scandal sparked by the allegations Shapiro in last yearsYahoo Sports story. Eight Miami players missed at least one game as part of sanctions the NCAA imposed over Shapiros claims, and four others had to make small restitution payments. It was the first blow in an academic year filled with compliance-related issues. Mens basketball was hit multiple times, first with the suspension of DeQuan Jones after he was linked to Shapiro Jones was ultimately allowed to return to the team and then suspensions of two other players. Reggie Johnson missed a game after the joint compliance investigation showed members of his fami ly accepted impermissible travel benefits from a member of the schools former coaching staff. And guard Durand Scott, the Hurricanesleading scorer, was suspended just before Miamis ACC tournament game with Florida State after he was also found to have gotten unspecified extra benefits. Even Miamis national ly ranked womens basketball team had problems, with star guard Riquna Williams suspended for violating team not NCAA rules just before the Hurricanes went to the NCAAtournament. Without Williams, Miami was ousted in the second round. But those matters pale to the ongoing inquiry into football, Miamis centerpiece program with five national championships since 1983. And its long been clear that the uncertainty what rules were broken and how tough will the penalties be will linger into this coming season, just as it overshadowed every step of the 2011 campaign. Youve just got to go forward and put the past in the past, Miami quarterback Stephen Morris said earlier this offseason. Last year was rough for everybody, for every sport here. Im sure everybody is just excited to move on. Report: Goldens staff broke recruiting rules not the entire league? Fans grumbled last season whenever Sanchez made mistakes, and there were plenty of them as he threw 18 interceptions and lost eight fumbles. If that ugly trend continues, those same booing fans will be joined by the thousands of Tebowmaniacs who followed Tebow from Denver to New York and want nothing more than to see him start for the Jets. And what if Sanchez struggles and some teammates pine for Tebow Time, causing quite the conundrum for Ryan and his staff? Thats when Sanchezs confidence and ego will really be tested. I think our team does a good job of pushing each other, Sanchez said, and Tim only adds to that. Many fans and media think its only a matter of time before Tebow eventually supplants Sanchez as the No. 1 guy for the Jets. Its a situation that has been analyzed and criticized from the minute New York stunned the league by acquiring Tebow. I think we were the only people who never had a problem with it, it seemed like, Ryan said. We look at it as were adding a good football player, which we did. Is he behind Sanchez on the depth chart? Yes. Just like every team has a guy behind their starting quarterback. But he brings so much more to the table. In other words, forget that Tebow is a quarterback. Sure, he led a handful of jaw-dropping comebacks including a late 95-yard TD drive against the Jets while helping the Broncos make the playoffs after taking over for Kyle Orton last season. But the fact Tebow is built like a fullback at 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, and is one of the strongest guys on the team could benefit an offense particularly in goal-line situations that will take a runfirst approach, just as Ryan likes it. Shonn Greene is the starting running back, and Joe McKnight the change-ofpace guy but Tebow could take some direct snaps and rumble out of the backfield for big gains. There could also be moments when Sanchez and Tebow are lined up together Sanchez as the quarterback and Tebow as, well, thats for defenses to figure out. Sanchez, of course, can ward off any controversy by improving in his fourth season, and allowing Tebows presence to actually take some pressure off him by adding another dimension to the offense. Whether thats at quarterback, running back, tight end or whatever else the Jets can come up with. The things that he did at the University of Florida, all he did was win ballgames, wide receiver Santonio Holmes recently said of Tebow on the NFLNetwork. He came to the NFLand all he did was make a few plays and help win very big ballgames when people counted them out. I think hes going to be that same guy coming to New York.

C M Y K By ARNIE STAPLETON Associated PressDENVER Itll take some getting used to, seeing Peyton Manning with the orange-maned mustang on his helmet instead of the blue-onwhite horseshoe. The four-time MVPis making a comeback in the city defined by them thanks to another iconic quarterback. When John Elway decided to go after the biggest free agent prize in NFLhistory, the Denver Broncosbrassy boss was first in line to make his pitch. Then Elway gave Manning some space, figuring hed appreciate not being pestered with follow-up calls. It was a sign of respect from one superstar quarterback to another as Elway sat back and watched Manning meet with his other suitors and decide where hed begin his comeback from a lost 2011 season. I knew if I was on the market in the prime of my career, then thats the way I would want to be treated, Elway explained. Displaying the same icy resolve he demonstrated while leading the Broncos on all those fourth-quarter comebacks and to so many Super Bowls, Elway patiently told an ever-antsy coach John Fox one morning last March that theyd just sit back and wait for Manning to call them hopefully with good news. Just then, Elways phone rang. He took the call, gave his coach a thumbs-up and Fox jumped for joy, joking he nearly sprained both ankles during his silent celebration. When Elway hung up, they hollered and the rest of the coaching staff came running. Elways strategy had worked. Will his bold bet also pay off? The Broncos are betting $96 million it will. They jettisoned Tim Tebow a day after landing Manning, who was released by the Indianapolis Colts in March after missing last season following four neck operations. Indy will start anew with Andrew Luck. Manning moved to Denver, rented Mike Shanahans massive mansion and went right to work, rehabbing in the morning, throwing in the afternoon and poring over the playbook and film into the wee hours. During offseason practices, Manning showed no ill effects of the nerve issue that caused weakness in his throwing arm last year and led to his tearfilled divorce from the team and town he brought to the forefront of pro football. The euphoric Broncos say theyve seen no reason to go easy with Manning when training camp begins Wednesday. Although Manning insists he has a ways to go in his rehab, his arm strength looks good and his deciphering of defenses appears as astute as ever. What he lacks is timing with his new targets, and old pals Brandon Stokley and Jacob Tamme are on hand to help with that. Theres no question its been a big change, a big switch. Its one Im trying to adjust to, Peyton said at his familys passing camp in Louisiana earlier this month. Theres constantly something to learn, something to adjust to, new players, new teammates, new coaches, new surroundings. So when youre 14 years in one place, you do kind of become institutionalized. Everybody keeps saying, Are you settled yet?... I dont think anybody can get settled in a couple of months. So itll take some time, but Im embracing the challenge and looking forward to getting to know my teammates more and more. One thing he surely wasnt thrilled to learn about was the recent arrest of Pro Bowl pass rusher Elvis Dumervil on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following a traffic dispute in Miami. Another of Denvers stars, linebacker D.J. Williams, is facing a six-game drug suspension and an August drunken driving trial that could lead to an even longer absence from the Broncosretooled defense. These are important developments because a good deal of Mannings success this season will depend upon how Denvers defense does. Will he have to play catchup or can he play keep-away? Will he be leading furious comebacks in crunch time or directing clock-eating drives to protect leads? Will opponents spend most of the game dropping into coverage or blitzing? The Broncos arent going to want Manning throwing as much as he did in his last full season, 2010, when he averaged a career-high 42 passes a game. What will really keep that pitch count manageable is a strong ground game, superb pass protection and a stingy, opportunistic defense led by Dumervil, Williams, Champ Bailey and Von Miller. Manning said he still has more rehabilitation ahead and has stopped giving percentages regarding how healthy he is. But his goal remains to participate fully in training camp, preseason and the regular season. Like I said, I still have work to do, but certainly its nice to be back on the field. You know, 20 years of pretty incredible health, never having to miss a game, never in my entire life playing football, so last year was different, Manning said. At 36, Manning is eager to show 2011 was but a speed bump in his storied career and not a roadblock that portends a dead end. I just know that he is going to play great football, Elway said. That is when I played my best football, the older I got, 37 and 38 were the two best years we had in m y career. I just know when you look at Peytons track record and his health ... he hasnt had any other significant injuries. I think with the way he plays the game, we believe he can play as long as he wants. On the day Manning signed on the dotted line, Elway was asked who is the best quarterback in the building? Elway might not have some of Mannings prolific passing statistics, but he owns two rings to Mannings one. Is he ahead of me yet? That is for you guys to decide, Elway replied. I know one thing, he has a hell of a lot more yards than I ever had, he has more touchdowns. The thing is, we are in the conversation, I would like to get to the place where he is the best of all time. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, July 22, 2012Page 5D LAKE DENTON CAMP; 3.639"; 5"; Black; july ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 0 0 5 5 3 3 STANLEY STEEMER CARPET; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 7/22/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 6 6 5 5 0 0 DR.

Berger then topped Baber 4 and 3 in the semis before Pooley, the third seed, nabbed a mild upset with a 1up win over Staffieri. Daniel Miller, the top seed in the 17-18 Boys, got quite a push from ninth-seed Blake Fitch, winning on the first hole of sudden death after Fitch had played him even over the first 18. Fourth-seed Colin Walkup won 3 and 2 over fifth-seed Kevin Ladue and second-seed Jonah Brown went 3 and 1 over Branden Fitch. But then Scott Cantwell pulled what may have been the upset of the day, as the 11th seed took a 1-up match from third seed Will Bennett. The momentum from Cantwells big win wouldnt last, however, as Brown edged him 2 and 1, while Miller set up a one versus two final with a 3 and 1 win over Walkup. The 14-18 Girls quarters went chalk as well, though not without some drama. First-seed Kendall Griffin went 5 and 4 over eighth-seed Avie Clark and second-seed Sarah Liles won 2 and 1 over seventh-seed Jayne Wilhelm. But while the third and fourth seeds, Savana Fisher and Lindsey Moffat, took their respective matches of Megan Crews and Meredith McKenna, both were taken to sudden death. Fisher won on her first extra hole, w hile Moffat was pushed to a third before taking the win. Which is why it might have played well for Liles, to take on F isher after a tough match like that, in her 3 and 2 win. But that logic held no water when M offat was able to bounce back from her close call to upset Griffin, 1-up, in their semifinal match. Sometimes the better player just plays bad and allows the lower seed to be able to upset them, but we know Kendall doesnt give anything away, Kesling said. Kendall played well and Lindsey just played better. Thats got to give her a lot of confidence in her game. For about a year and a half every time Kendall teed it up in Sertoma she never lost. Thats definitely a record for the girls, and I bet its probably a record for the junior tour, so congratulations to both of them for a very well-played round. It marked the first time Griffin had been beaten on the tour in 15 events. The seeding charts having been shuffled every which way, the event continued into Thursdays final round of match plays. Billy Carol topped Beckham Donovan for the 9-10 Boys title, with Zach Doorlag going 6 and 4 over Jackson Griffin for third, John Allen Rogers taking a 2 and 1 win over Cash Smoak for fifth and Josh Bible getting a 1-up win over Chance Smoak for seventh. Ashley Engle then won out in the 11-12 Boys/Girls with a 4 and 2 win over Joseph Flood, with Clayton Osha taking third with a 7 and 5 over John David Spiegel. In the 13-14 Boys, Jett Dexter came out in first with a 3 and 2 over Nick Kresl, Sam Rogers placed third with a 2 and 1 over Sam Weber-Callahan and Andrew Wally took fifth, edging Coleman Nelson 1-up. Jason Cannon went 9 and 8 over Perry Taylor for seventh and Hilton Teal won 3 and 2 over Jake Pendergrass for ninth. The 15-16 Boys saw another crowded field, with 14 golfers squaring off in matches Thursday. Cole Berger took a 3 and 1 win over Rhett Pooley to take first in the field, with Dustin Baber going 2 and 1 over Nic Staffieri for third. Colin Kresl got a 6 and 5 over Lee Hinote for fifth, a number matched by Ben Tubbs in his win over Easton Davis for seventh. Corey Franks won 8 and 7 over Bradley Brewer for ninth, Austin Oliver went 5 and 3 over Marcus Battles for 11th and Paul Cantwell won 4 and 2 over Reed Woods for 13th. Daniel Miller made his top-seed hold up as he edged Jonah Brown 1up to win the 17-18 Boys, with Colin Walkup winning 8 and 6 over Scott Cantwell for third. Will Bennett went 9 and 8 over Blake Fitch for fifth, Branden Fitch won 2 and 1 over Kevin Ladue for seventh and Terrell Williams got a 3 and 2 win over William Beattie for ninth. In the 14-18 Girls, Sarah Liles took the crown with a 4 and 3 over Moffat, while Kendall Griffin ended her one-round losing stre ak with a 4 and 3 over Savana Fisher. Megan Crews went 8 and 7 over Avie Clark for fifth and Meredith McKenna went 8 and 6 over Jayne W ilhelm for seventh. It was a great couple of days with a lot of close matches, which is what its all about, Kesling said. And I cant say enough about the tremendous job Bill Jarrett Ford does out here every year. They feed the kids and parents and provide drinks to everybody, as well as giving out a tee giftto all the kids.
