AUGUSTINE Gov. Rick Scott played his most visible role to date in helpingR epublican Mitt Romneys presidential campaign,and h e had an answer Monday for Democrats who say his message about Floridas improv-i ng economy conflicts with Romnes message that the e conomy is still suffering because of President Barack Obamas policies. W hile Scott has raised money for Romney and told Republican groups to support h is campaign,his introduction of Romney in front of a l arge rally was his largest public event for the candidate. Democrats have tried to create the perception that Romney doesnt want toa ppear with Scott because of the governors low approval rating. Even though we havea president that is making it much,much more difficult to do well,in Florida our econ-o my is getting better,Scott said,adding that the states u nemployment has dropped faster than all but one other state. A recent Quinnipiac University poll showedS cotts approval rating at 36 percent and Democrats have been calling him toxicto Romney. Other than thanking Scott for the introduction,R omney didnt mention him in his remarks. Scott spoke for about five minutes and appeared more energetic than he usually does,raising his voice almost to a shout. e cannot afford another four years of Barack Obama. His policies have failed us, Scott said. He actually believes his policies are working. What do you think? After the crowd shouted, Scott added,He doest get it.

But it can also be a time of accomplishment,a time of creating memories that years later you look back on with a feeling of pride. That sums up the stories of many veterans,including Charles J. Price of Lake Placid,now a lively 89. From 1943-1945,while America was deep in the bloody horrors of World War II,Price was doing his part as a tail gunner on a B-17 a Flying Fortress over the skies of Europe as part of the 350th Bomb Squadron,of the 100th High Altitude Heavy Bomb Group (known as the Bloody 100th),Third Division of the Eighth Air Force,and based in central England. He completed some 35 or 36 missions,all as a tail gunner,with the same plane (Happy Go Lucky) and the same crew. No one wanted to trade places with me,he recalls.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Plans for a w eek-long celebration of the City of Sebrings 100th birthday are coming together. TheS ebring Centennial Celebration committee has b een meeting monthly for over a year to organize the festivities which begin Oct. 1 3 and conclude on Oct. 20. The kick-off event held back on Jan. 6 exceeded expectations,said Allen Alvater III,local historiana nd member of the committee. We expect our weeklong celebration Oct. 13-20 to be equally enjoyable and to have something for every-o ne. We particularly appreciate the generosity of Alan J ay Automotive for being our Double Platinum sponsor fort he entire week. The Sebring Centennial Celebration committee released the following details for the week-long festivities.A n old-fashioned bed race will take place on West Center in downtown Sebring on Oct. 13 at 11 a.m.,with DJ and emcee duties provid-e d Sebring celebrity Rooter Rush. Community organizations,Sebring High classes, and local businesses are e xpected to enter the bed race. C ity Clerk and Centennial committee member Kathy Haley recalls being the pas-s enger in a bed engineered by the Sebring Fire Department i n such a bed race held in the late 1980s. Ill have to think long and hard before I do that a gain,said Haley,ut I will definitely be a cheering spectator. On Monday,Oct. 15,the downtown streets will bec losed to traffic for a huge celebration. A parade will kick off at 5:30 p.m. on a route from the Sebring Parkway,down NorthR idgewood,around the Circle,and ending at the end o f South Commerce. Afterward,local favoriteC alifornia Toe Jam Band will provide music on the Circle, and South Ridgewood will be the scene of a giant picnic area with a variety of foodv endors. e expect a huge crowd and a large number of entrants for this event,said parade organizer Alice Fairel. Participants should submit their entry forms as soon as possible while space is available. The theme of the parade i s iving the Legacy.I a nticipate some very creative floats and walking groups to i llustrate that theme in the parade. On Wednesday evening, Oct. 17,there will be a community-wide prayer meeting at Rotary Park behind theJ ack Stroup Civic Center, starting at 6 p.m. Altvater is heading up this event witht he help of Commissioner Greg Harris. wo hundred two-piece chicken dinners will be available from Kentucky FriedC hicken at a cost of $5 each, or those attending are welcome to bring their own picn ic baskets,Altvater said. There will be music,prayers and,I imagine,some remi-n iscing about the early churches in Sebring,whichw ere an important part of George Sebrings plan to grow this community.

D og Day of Summer at Bok Tower Gardens 4 -legged guests w elcome Sept. 8 By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID After a successful yet challenging high school career,former Lake Placid High School student-athlete Meesha Munnings is making plans to enter college in the upcoming weeks. Munnings graduated in June 2011 from LPHS,where she was an avid member of school groups and the basketball team. After being diagnosed with cancer,Munnings found it challenging,but not impossible,to follow her dreams after high school. Diagnosed with osteosarcoma,an aggressive form of bone cancer affecting adolescents during periods of rapid growth,just a few months before her high school graduation,Munnings pushed through a surgery that removed her femur and part of her hip. Munnings had initially planned to enter college in January but was forced to postpone college due to an unexpected return of her cancer. My cancer came back in late December (2011 ed treatments again on Jan. 4, and I had my final treatment on June 2,Munnings said. Following a second round of chemotherapy treatments for those five months at the Arnold Palmer Center in Orlando,Munnings has been declared cancer free. I got scanned again on July 3 and they came back cancer free. Everything is good right now, Munnings said. With that,the determined young woman is off to start her sophomore year of college. Munnings had already collected 21 credit hours as a high school graduate and continued taking courses during her treatments last semester. Munnings enrolled in online courses completing pre-calculus,statistics,psychology and speech communications in the summer. ll be going to Florida State (University), Lake Placids Munnings earns ACS scholarship Munnings S ee CENTENNIAL,page 7A See MUNNINGS,page 5A

The letters arep rinted below in no particular order but by alphabetization of the candidates last name.Support for ArnoldEditor: There is a song titled, I Wonder As I Wander. My spouse and I no longer wander, but we certainly wonder as to what is and what has happened to our great country that was ordained by our living God? It is a well known tact that many wealthy people lost everything they had accumulated in the fight against the British and put together our Constitution, which we now live under. We are deeply concerned about the wild, unexplained spending under the guise of spreading the wealth, but in reality has caused our people to be dependent on government handouts, plus loss of jobs (9.6 percent to 14 percent unemployment, depending on the state) and the many people who have given up looking for work. It is my considered opinion that we must remove Obama and his band of socialists, plus remove in the upcoming primary (Aug. 14 people who voted to increase the debt limit of our country to more than $15 million. One of these people was Tom Rooney, our Congressman running for office in District 17. If you live in District 17 and are reading this letter, I recommend Joe Arnold in Congress, based on the fact T. Rooney voted to increase our national debt limit (headed for $16 trillion). I spoke with Joe Arnold and decided he is a better c hoice than T. Rooney for Congress for the 17th D istrict. So lets all of us Republicans cast our vote for Joe Arnold. Charles A. Marr Avon ParkSupport for BrooksE ditor: We, the citizens of Highlands County, have the opportunity to elect a new county commissioner who has over 40-plus years of combined local government and private business experience in Highlands County. I have known Jim Brooks for over 20 years and he is a proven leader and a man of integrity. Jim Brooks has a proven track record in Highlands County. As county EMS coordinator from 1980-85, he over saw taking our EMS from Basic Life Support service to Advanced Life Support. Since 1985 he has built and continues to operate an award-winning retirement community of 590 sites and over 1,000 residents. While doing this he has found time to give thousands of hours of his time to government and community service. He has been a member of county Planning and Zoning Commission since 1989. He served eight years as a member of the SFCC Board of Trustees. Additionally, he has served on numerous other government and community boards and organizations. Jim understands government and more importantly, knows what it is to operate a successful private business over the last 27 years. He has the desire and proven commitment to serve all the citizens of Highlands County. Jim Brooks has the experience in both government and the private sector to bring a common sense approach to the county commission. You can count on Jim to do his homework, always be access ible to the citizens that elect him, and have informed comm on sense decisions as your county commissioner. Hoz Compton Lake Placid E ditor: I am pleased to endorse Jim Brooks for the Highlands County commission. I have known Jim for almost 30y ears and worked very closely with him for eight years as a member of the South Florida Community College District Board of Trustees. Jim has broad experience in both the public sector and the private sector, including 23 years of volunteer service on the Highlands Planning and Zoning Commission and 27 years of developing and managing a highly successful family business from the ground up. His website -www.brooksforhighlandscounty.com provides the long list of his public service proving that Jim has indeed earned his spurs. Jim is a common sense conservative who studies problems, seeks facts and options and finds solutions that best fit the situation. We can count on Jim to always have the countys and the citizensbest interests at heart. Catherine P. Cornelius Avon Park SFCC President EmeritusSupport for CoxEditor: Wally Cox is the best choice for Superintendent of Schools. He is a proven, effective leader with 12 years of experience in this job. He is fiscally responsible, supportive to staff, open to parents, and caring for students. It has been suggested that most effective schools have instructional leaders at the helm. I would remind you that most ineffective schools also have instructional leaders in charge. What makes t he difference? Does the CEO of the hosp ital need to be a medical doctor? Does the head of an international airport have to be a veteran pilot? Does the clerk of courts need to be at rial lawyer? Educational degrees and instructional job experience, in and of themselves, do not make an effective leader.E ffective leaders, like Wally Cox, surround themselves with knowledgeable people who can focus on each aspect of the job. He is honest, hardworking, and dependable. He is a true servant leader. Wally Cox was honored as Floridas Superintendent of the Year in 2012 for his outstanding performance and leadership skills. Please make your vote count in the upcoming primary and election. Diane L. Lethbridge Retired teacher and principal Highlands County schools Editor: I am writing to recommend that residents cast their vote for Wally Cox for reelection to superintendent of Highlands County schools. I certainly plan to vote for him. I retired this year after serving as a school social worker for 23 years. I developed a real appreciation for Wally during the time I worked under his direction as superintendent. Since Wally is one of those unique individuals with a mathematical mind and a sensitive heart, I have seen him struggle emotionally with decisions that involved dealing with budget issues and cutting positions that involved job losses. His method, for the most part, was to cut through attrition when staff retired and not to fire staff. Even when cutting Continued on page 6A T he News-Sun too, thinks it is an excellent idea. We completely support it, although there are some that do not, as was made clear at Monday nights meeting. The fact is, an Olympic length t riathlon has benefits that outweigh the risks. L ets begin with the fact that a high standard is already set. The Heartland Triathlon is well-organized, well-coor-d inated and well-prepared. Its an allaround smashing success every year and h as gained a reputation as one of the best sprint triathlons around. The new race will be compared to it. To succeed as a business, the race will, at the least, h ave to equal the Heartland Tri. Friendly competition could do everyone good. Then there are the number of people who will be drawn to the county to take part in the races or cheer on a lovedo ne. Think about the percent of those peop le who could decide to move into the county. After all, our back roads often bend, t wist and dip, and our lakes are perfect for swimming well OK, maybe not L ake Istoktoga. The point is that Highlands County is a perfect place for triathletes in training to live. And that, in turn, could lead to new triathlon related business, busier restaur ants and certainly hotels, especially during race weekends. There is another benefit, although it is not as measurable and more subtle the way races like these excite people toa ction, set an example and inspire. Its the challenge of pushing oneself to a personal best, and exercising in the outdoors. Because of the increasing number of youth triathlons in the area, more andm ore children are swimming, running and biking. This we think is the greatest b enefit of all wresting our children away from the PlayStation and into the sunlight. W e hope hatchets can be buried. That lessons have been learned. W e hope the community will gather behind this marvelous opportunity, which can turned to great advantage to Lake Placid and the county. Community should support triathlon in Lake Placid We applaud the Lake Placid Town Council for agreeing to move ahead with the Olympic length triathlon, kids triahtlon and duathlon proposed for next April. Five years ago my daughterp icked up her drivers license y ou know, the official one that made it OK for her to drive without my supervi-s ion. It scared me to pieces and even t hough its been five years, I still get nervous whenI know she is on the road. But on that day, my d aughter taught me a lesson. Without hesitation, she made known her decis ion to be an organ donor. I remember thinking how mature and unselfish she was. When her dad was home, w e would often talk about organ donors and the things that were necessary from a emergency rescue standpoint to make suret hose organs were protected in order to be used to s ave the lives of others. Still, I never signed up. Ats ome point along the way I got it in my head that if it was marked on my license that I was an organ donor and I wasnt in good shapea t the scene of an accident they wouldnt work hard to keep me alive. I know how many ways can you spell STU-P ID. Danny had tried to explain to me that my thoughts were all wrong but it didnt matter how heated the discussion became, I wasnt going to believe him. Then my eyes started to open to just how shallow and wrong my way of thinking was. I interviewed the father of one of the two young men killed at the red light at Vicki Drive and U.S. 27. His son decided at a young age to be an organ donor, which made his father very happy. When I left that interview, I felt like I knew the young man and understood the decision he had made. Then a friend of mine went through a lung transplant, and another friend was put on the waiting list for a heart transplant. My stupidity of being afraid to become an organ donor was really starting to get the best of me. The day Briana signed on to be an organ donor, I too made that commitment. When we walked out of the Department of Motor Vehicles office, I not only was proud of my daughter, but Ic onsidered myself again a graduate o f the school of hard knocks. And now we have the amazing story of young M iranda Ming. Miranda, 18, w as involved in a single-vehicle accident on the e vening of Aug. 5. Florida Highway Patrol notified t he media that the young girl had been pronounced dead at Longwood Medical C enter in Ft. Pierce where she was airlifted after the crash for organ donation. However, once she was moved to Miami for organd onation, doctors found brain activity. For a week, family and friends stood vigil over Miranda, hoping and pray-i ng for a miracle. Last week you may have r ead my rantings over social media, but it was viaF acebook that Mirandas stepfather, Scott Pearce, kept many friends informed about Mirandas situation. Shortly after shes uccumbed to her injuries last weekend, someone posted that Mirandas heart had gone to a 13-year-old. I pray that the transplant iss uccessful. I didnt know Miranda, but I will tell you that Ive been truly inspired by her and by what her loved ones have been through. I join so many others in praying that the family finds peace. According to United Network for Organ Sharing, there were 114,802 candidates on the waiting list for an organ donation as of 8:40 a.m. Tuesday 73,052 of them are active, meaning they are suitable for transplant at a given point in time. More than 11,400 transplants have taken place from January through May this year. I urge everyone to think about becoming an organ donor. Dont be ignorant like I was. Get the facts. Go to unos.org or donatelife.net and get informed. So many lives can be saved or changed. Do it in memory of Miranda. Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor of the News-Sun.

And you ride backwards all the time youre airborne. Youc ant stretch out; youre kneeling most of the time and you wear out your knees. Even today at times he has t o wear a support strap on one knee or the other. So far,both knees havent been hurting at the same time. Looking back on his comb at missions,Price,then a staff sergeant in his early 20s,says,It scares me more now than when I went through it. Wd go througha flak field of anti-aircraft f ire for some 10-15 minutes, with hundreds,maybe thous ands of flak bursts. When we came out of it,German fighters would attack us b ut our own fighters were there trying to protect us. We d idnt have time to be afraid; we were too busy doing our job. In what seems like a miracle,Price says that out of 55c rews in the bomb group, Happy Go Lucksurvived w ithout any casualties. One out of 55 thats pretty rare. H e reports he is the last known living crew member f rom his B-17 and,coincidentally,the last of his own family of 10. Seems likeI m always bringing up the rear,he quips. Sometimes you get a bett er picture of someone through their records rather t han an interview. For example,Price has been awarded a number of awards and decorations,including The Distinguished Flying Cross,a warded to any person who distinguished himself or herself by heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight. Price earned the award for serving as tail gunner on many high altitude heavyb ombardment missions against the enemy over Continental Europe Sergeant Price repelled numerous hostile fightera ttacks by his excellent marksmanship,thereby assuring the safety of the crew and aircraft. This courage,presence of minda nd devotion to duty while engaged in aerial combat on all these occasions are in keeping with the highest traditions of the United StatesA ir Forces. He also has received Silver Wings,three AirM edals,two Presidential Citations and the Good C onduct Medal. One other certificate was also awarded to Price,per-h aps with the same serious message as his official awards but in a jovial fashi on and in the most proper Olde Englishlanguage p ossible. The event was his admission to the Brotherhoode of the Luckye Bastardes Club A gatherynge of G.I.s assembled inG rayte Brytagne. The certificate proclaims that Charles J. Price hath acheyved to eminence by reasone of having sallied forthe no lesse than 34 tymes ande also bye Goddes Grace having returned in saftie frome eache andee verye sallye transporting for ande unto ye German Reich full manye a tonne of petards,mines,balles of fire ande othere greyvous bur-t hens for ye discomfiting of ye manne Hitler ande all his eville companye unto ye Glorie of Godde And theres an unfinished s tory about another medal a story with a twist of today. As Price tells it,On Sept. 18,1944,my squadron went on a mission to drop sup-p lies to the Polish underground in Warsaw. But we had no idea of what was ino ur bomb bay at the time. We thought they were bombs. Then,this past April,I had a physical at the Sebring V A clinic from a female doctor with a foreign accent. I asked her where she wasf rom and when she said Warsaw,I said,Well,I was k inda thereand I told her about the September 1944 mission. She said,My father and his brother picked up thoses upplies, and she thanked me for what I did. We were promised a medal from the Polish government,Price says,utw e still havent received it.Honor FlightTheres yet another current event with roots in W orld War II. Price was one of a number of World War II v ets living in Florida who participated on Oct. 29, 2011,in a day-long mission as guests of the Honor Flight of West Central Florida,parto f a national volunteer operation designed to reach as many vets as possible. The purpose of each mission is to thank the vets for their service to their country with a tour of the war memorials in W ashington,D.C. Each vet is assigned a self-paid,volu nteer Guardian(or escort) for the day,but Price still remains in contact witht he woman who served as his Guardian. L ooking back on that day, he says,They treated us better than weve ever beent reated before. As Price searches through his World War II memorabili a,and as he tells his World War II stories,including his H onor Flight to Washington, you can see and hear and feel how proud he still is for what the military did for him (I enjoyed the service.T he Air Force made a man out of me,he says.)

Saturday will be the kids race and registration for the adult race. Thek idsrace will serve as the kickoff for the existing series through the Highlands County Family YMCA,the Rockn Heartland Youth Triathlon Series to benefit Julies Funds for Kids. This event will take place first thing int he morning,followed by an awards ceremony and a planned barbecue and musical festival. Sunday will consist of the sprint distance triathlon and duathlon and the Olympic dis-t ance triathlon and duathlon. The sprint distances will be a quarter-mile swim (1 mile run duathlon),12 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. TheO lympic distances will be 3/4 mile swim (1.5-mile run duathlona 24-mile bike and a 6.2 mile run. T he event will be sanctioned by USA Triathlon,organizers said. I t was clear from the start that chamber members and the Lake Placid chief of police were in favor of the project. Im very positive on this idea,said Councilor Steve Bastardi. It will come with n egative elements,but thats unavoidable. Police Chief Phil Williamson reported that the community in general is in favor. For the most part (the responseve, he said. W illiamson added that the police department was up to the challenge of providing t raffic control and public safety on the two days of the event. Its doable,he said. Not everyone approves,however.T here are philosophical concerns,for example,because the established Heartland T riathlon in Sebring operates as a not-forprofit,and a major goal of the Lake Placid tri is to make money. Councilor Debra Worley, f or one,felt some local non-profit should benefit. In response to earlier discussions,Andrews said,Paragon promises a portion of the proceeds will go to Julies Kids at the SebringF amily YMCA and to the Mason Smoak Foundation in Lake Placid. Councilor Ray Royce wanted to be sure there was a clear line between the organizers of the race and the city. He worried about set-t ing a precedent and insisted the city have no ownership in the project and carry no liabilit y. It was Patrick High,however,who had the s trongest objections. High and Cherie Starr are the couple most responsible for making the HeartlandT riathlon the outstanding event it is. A passionate advocate for triathlon racing, H igh was involved with the Paragon project early on,but left over differences. Monday night,Highs expressed concerns i nvolved Andrews and his lack of experience. Andrews,who organized the first Heartland T riathlon,had made mistakes,High said. He added that triathlon races are dangerous. Cyclists get hit by cars,inexperienced swimmers sometimes panic in the crowd. How much risk do you think is related to that?hea sked the town council. Were Andrews and his company up to putt ing on such a complicated event,High was asked. Not today,he replied.A subtext of the discussion had to do with Andrewspast. A ndrews was fired in October of 2008 as executive director of the Sebring Chamber of Commerce and arrested in November of 2008 o n charges of grand theft and scheme to defraud. He and the court reached a plea agreement in January of 2010 that included restitution and 60 months of probation. Several individuals rose to defend A ndrews,including Chris Doty,principal of Hill-Gustat Middle School,and Bert Cox,a plumbing contractor. I trust him,both men said. Each also addressed the overall benefits of triathlons e specially their positive impact on children. Doty said the weekend childrens triathlon a t the YMCA,which was directed by Andrews,brought in 103 participants,onef rom Germany.

C M Y K Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, August 15, 2012www.newssun.com in that manner, which is what happened with school socialw orkers, he was so apologetic to those of us who were left to carry the full load. All of us know whatever fields that we have workedi n, that the last few years have been financially horrific. Wally with his experience in finance and money management has led the schoolsi n a way that no one else could have through these difficult years. I do not believe that now is the time to experiment with ac hange of direction by an inexperience candidate. In summary, Wally Cox is anh onest, caring, kind person who has given 100 percent in his role as superintendent.H is experience as a finance director in the educational s etting prepared him as no other for the role of superintendent. This is not the timef or a change; please consider voting for Wally Cox to cont inue as school superintendent. Katherine Main SebringSupport for HutchinsonEditor: Again this morning I read t he same stated qualifications of Wally Cox, the current s chool board superintendent. He is described to be an excellent administrator, very s avvy with the budget, and has been forced to make many hard decisions to keep as much staff as budget allows. I also remember reading Highlands Today articles where Wally Cox made commentary to the effect, He wants one more term. Hek nows the budget and he knows where the money was m oved around to. He also knows where the moneyn eeds to be returned to, if more funding is allocated ... He has further stated he wants one more term to complete all this and then let then ext guy, take it to the next level ... This sounds just like one of those wonderful Washington, D.C.-based money programs. Give me the money now and we will let our children pay for it later. Wally Cox might be a good bookkeeper and can possibly work through a budget, but to raise the bar in classroom education, we need someone new. We cant wait for more years to take it to the next level. Being congratulatory and wanting to celebrate an A status school in Highlands County is a little hollow when we learn that this was an after thought. When it was discovered a calculation error was made and the need to lower the standards. It was later determined that Highlands County School District had one school out of 17 schools that rose to an A status school. I am finding it difficult to comprehend Wally Coxs abilities to make corrective actions, after serving for more than 30 years within the district. We need to go to the next level this coming fall. My family and I have decided. We chose the candidate best prepared to take upon this task William F. Pep Hutchinson. Nancy Barlaug Sebring Editor: I was fortunate to recently attend a candidatesdebate in Avon Park. Having to be somewhat undecided on a few races: The school superintendent race is still unsettling to me. Once I realized that Mr. (Wally) Cox was not attending, nor was he considerate to send someone in his stead,I directed my attention to the remaining three candidates. I must admit I was pleased to hear remarkable commentsf rom all three candidates, but the one candidate truly deserving my vote will be Mr. (William) Hutchinson. His policy on truancy, int odays school, is quite refreshing. As a former school nurse, this was a constant battle for local school administration. And, just asM r. Hutchinson stated, he will have a zero tolerance for this type of activity. Maybe, just maybe he will be the bridge between thel ocal community and the local classroom. Catherine Emma S ebring Editor: L etter to Mr. Hutchinson: I got your brochure in the m ail and couldnt believe my eyes when you made the statement that you could dos omething innovative about the kids who were troublem akers. You also stated that you would do something proactive about the kids who dont show up for school. Way to go! W hen a kid is truant, he learns nothing except bad b ehavior. Something tells me that you can think outside of the box, which is somethingv ery much welcomed in this district. W elcome to the superintendents race. Im voting for you and so is my family. N ancy Pitcher Avon ParkSupport for OggEditor: When you remove the political side of theS upervisor of Elections vote, Penny Ogg is by far the best qualified for the office ... she has the experience ... hands on in the office she is seeking. I do not know her but she d oes not appear to be a politician and, therefore does not h ave that clout in her corner as the others do. We can see first hand in the White House, Washington, D.C. what a politician can do orn ot do without experience. Frank Parker Sebring Editor: S upervisor of Elections Penny Ogg, eight years experience under Joe Campbell. If you liked Joe, you will be very happy with honest and dependable Penny Ogg. Bob Willard SebringSupport for PeckEditor: Republican Roberta Peck will be best superintendent for six reasons. (1 a very cost-effective multidimensional truancy plan as part of her platform. Avon Park High School has the highest Afro-Male number of drop-outs in the state of Florida, 18 percent. School dropouts will ultimately cost taxpayers profoundly in local crime, unwed children, and drug use. Sheriff (Susan Benton has pointed to the lack of a unified procedure, which has been frustrating to officers. (Wally) Cox has yet to follow up in this critical area. I like Pecks plan because it recognizes the importance of character development and The Arts in teaching the whole child. Disruptive bullies of students and teachers will be dealt with. (2 steward of taxpayer money because she will manage facilities like her own home. Example: She has already saved significant tax dollars by relentless e-mailing, letter writing, and follow-up regarding full-tilt, air conditioning 24-7-365 days a year. This has been a silent drain and flagrant taxpayer waste, few, even those in the system, have been aware of. There are other silent drainso f taxpayer money to be found on her website: electpeck2012.com. (3The incumbent is an accountant. Peck an awardw inning educator, trained in gifted education, who also has a successful business background. In addition, Peck has 33 years of directe xperience in what procedures work, having always taught at our highest rated schools. Examples: Calling students before the schooly ear begins engages kids and should be done at all schools, parent training in accessingg rades invites parent involvement. Her solutions are costeffective. Excellence will bei n the refinements and restructuring she has the b ackground to be aware of (not clueless of (4 e rs and students off the treadmill of relentless testing. ( 5) Peck will not continue Coxs lobbying at state level for more money. The state doesnt have it and what it gets from national govern-m ent is barrowed from China, putting the whole n ation further in debt. Nor will Peck rely on local taxpayers to fund a top heavys ystem. She will cut at the top, starting with her own s alary 25 percent, over $100,000. Peck is donating to our schools. ( 6) Peck will motion to restructure school board salaries, which have climbed to $373 for each hour of meeting. Thirty-six years agot hese positions were voluntary. Each school board member is costing our county basically what a beginning teacher makes. I say Elect Peck. Vivian Ashby S ebring E ditor: I am for Roberta Peck for superintendent for the following reasons. Our county, city and especially our schools ystem are facing a dire budget crisis. There simply are not sufficient revenues and funds to provide all the services that the citizens ofS ebring and the students of our school system require. We need not only the award-winning educational background Peck will provide, but her multidimensional cost-conscious leadership. Roberta Peck has been looking for innovative ways to solve the budget crisis and has come to me (I work as a consultant in the electric power business). Her question was, if there are low cost, fast payback options to reduce the school electric bills, which absorb a tremendous percentage of the school budget. I told Roberta that I will work with her to find those low cost options that I know will reduce the school system electric bill drastically. For instance, Enerfit produces a patent pending electronic device to convert single zone commercial HVAC fixed speed fans into variable speed fans that has already been proved in dozens of installations (like the prestigious, private Baylor high school and Hamilton Place Mall) demonstrating 40-70 percent reduction in electric power demand and the electric bill at a cost that can provide payback in months to a short few years, while counter intuitively improving comfort. I like that Roberta Peck has made herself very savvy in various ways to save big money to hire more teachers. She asks the right questions and insists on details. The Enerfit is a retrofit technology that can be applied to any brand of HVAC system and also improve comfort by reducing relative humidity in the cooling mode (by slowing down fan and thus increasing the time air spends flowing overt he cooling coils), greatly reducing drafts, reducing fan speed and thus reducing distracting noise, and has different control modes to alsor educe room carbon dioxide (thus helping to keep students awake). Roberta Pecks vow of donating over $100,000 ofh er salary as superintendent speaks as a bond that she is serious about putting more teachers in the classroom who are excellent teachers. S o vote during the upcoming primaries for Roberta Peck if you are looking for al eadership to solve our budget crisis and to get our school back on track providing ours tudents a high quality education, I know I will. D ale Bradshaw Sebring CEO Electrivation Editor: I t is clear that the people who say (Wally) Cox has been a good accountant simply dont know of the silent drain of hundreds of thou-s ands of taxpayer dollars under Coxs supervision. The f irst major example over the last decade, has been the silent drain in unmanaged airc onditioning, which ran at maximum cooling 24 hours a d ay, 365 days a year. Yes, taxpayers provided super cold air conditioning even during s ummer months and holidays when schools sat empty. With all energy controls set at the county office, it was also status quo during the lastd ecade under Cox, to see hundreds of outside strip lights on during daylight hours. The cost of this silent drain?; hundreds of thou-s ands?, maybe millions, who knows. W ith lack of supervision this taxpayer money is nowg one and unaccounted for. Unknown to most, it was a teacher, Roberta Peck, now a candidate for superintendent, who has been relentless ins topping that energy drain. But only the superintendent can stop the drain of educational money going to pay school board members as alary, (plus benefits an hour for the approximate 80 hours they meet each year. I have been told the reason for this is that Cox is by nature pleasant, amiable and totally non-confrontational. Therefore, I assume it must have been so painful for him to cut teachers, that he had to accept that hefty $15,000 raise just to get through the ordeal. The superintendents job is to evaluate principals. The confrontational criticism required in evaluating principals was avoided by hiring Darrel Bryant (another big salary) to do that job. Remember, Cox is an accountant with no background in education whatsoever. Regarding Coxs Superintendent of the Year Award, I think if you are a member of that elite club of superintendents long enough (like Coxs 12 years), the award is eventually passed to you. How could that award have been given on merit with any awareness of the atrocious dropout rates for all Highlands high schools? Fourteen percent drop out of Sebring and Lake Placid High. Eighteen percent of kids drop out of Avon Park High School, the highest in the state. These uneducated dropouts under 12 years of Cox have been set up to be the biggest silent drain on taxpayers, which will last for decades during lifetimes of welfare services. My vote will be for eagleeyed educator Roberta Peck this Republican Primary. Asa Jackson Sebring Editor: www.electpeck2012.com is t he site for Republican Roberta Pecks platform. I noticed when my letter in support of Roberta Peck for superintendent appeared, thatt he website with her platform was in error. The had been left out. Also, to clarify what I wrote about the excessive rate of drop-outs under( Wally) Cox, Sebring High School at 14 percent, has the most drop-outs coming froma bigger population. But Avon Park High School is ata whopping 18 percent, with the highest number of AfroAmerican males dropping outi n the state. Other counties are producing far better results with thes ame demographics and declining budget. S heriff Susan Benton has stated openly how frustrated her officers have been tryingt o operate under Coxs lack of a unified truancy plan. S heriff Benton stated that truancy is the number one cause of local crime. Teachers cant teach to an empty seat. Truancy leads tou neducated kids dropping out. T he sheriff has asked for help via a unified plan. Cox is notorious for lack of fol-l ow-up. These excessive numbers o f dropouts in our county will end up costing taxpayers in increased crime, teen pregn ancies, drug use, and a high number of ignorant disenfranchised life-long drains on the taxpayer. Roberta Pecks cost-effect ive truancy plan is multidimensional in addressing the whole child. When you visit Pecks website: www.electpeck2012 you will under-s tand why Peck is the Best bar none for superintendent. I t is important that registered Republicans turn out for thisv ery important Republican Primary. Jaime Fowler Sebring E ditor: I met a just retired teacher of Highlands County schools and found out shes running for our new superintendent ofs chools. She has large ideas to improve our county school scores, use a carrot and stick for truancy, and many other workable ideas including using 25 percent of her salary to hire more teachers all within our budget. How about a town hall to discuss issues and get ideas from the community? We cant be apethetic about this because our kids futures are depending on us to help. You can go to www.electpeck.com; see what she has planned and meet her outside the polls in August. I sincerely feel Roberta Peck can lead us to a much improved and enjoyable outcome for our students and teachers in our county. Flora J. Potts Sebring Dont elect Pigman Editor: I write today to express my sincere disappointment in Cary Pigman. The ridiculous campaign mail I received yesterday tells me much about his character. I attended a debate a few weeks ago where both he and his opponent promised to stick to the issues and avoid negative attacks. Mr Pigman has broken his word and undoubtedly has started a war of negativity in this election that will not serve to educate anyone on who will best serve the people. Shame on you sir, you told us you were different from other politicians. Instead its just the same old garbage from the same political consultants with a different candidates face on the flyer. If this is the best Sebring has to offer then we shouldp robably look for someone from somewhere else. Steve and Nell Roberts SebringRooney is an embarrassmentEditor: John Boehner,Sen. John M cCain and other GOPleaders spoke up last week for the State Departmentemployee targeted in Rep.Michele Bachmann and Rep. TomR ooneys recent outburst of Islamophobia. Bachmanns letters claiming infiltration byt heMuslim Brotherhoodinto the highest levels of our government were reminiscent of1 950s red baiting. It was embarrassing to see Florida R ep. Tom Rooneysign on to her corrosive fantasy. Bachmann, Rooney and t hree otherGOPmembers of Congress singled outHuma A bedin, a Muslim and top aide toSecretary of State Hillary Clinton. That, McCain said, was nothing less than an unwar-r anted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a d edicated American and a loyal public servant. Huma represents what is b est about America: the daughter of immigrants, who h as risen to the highest levels of our government on the basis of her substantial pers onal merit and her abiding commitment to the American ideals that she embraces so fully. I am proud to know Huma, and to call her myf riend. McCains eloquence is a red, white and blue reminder that free speech carries responsibilities: When anyone, not least a member of Congress, launche s specious and degrading attacks against fellowA mericans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and ignorance of what they stand for, it defames the spirit of ourn ation, and we all grow poorer because of it. How can anyone vote to send Rep. Tom Rooney back to Washington to embarrassH ighlands County on the national stage? Pam Holt SebringCommissioner: How would you vote?Editor: The issue of putting a Sunset in the Tourist Development Tax is a very hot one; some of our present commissioners think the tax should be forever, no matter what. And some think there should be a Sunset in it, forcing accountability to the voters. If it is doing what was promised, we keep it; if not, we toss it out. Just like we do with all elected officials. Thursday night, Aug. 2, at a forum, I asked the following question. If elected as county commissioner would you vote to put the issue of a Tourist Development Tax Sunset, every 10 years starting two years after approval, on the ballot and allow the citizens of Highlands County to decide Yes or No. As you know, some politicians find it very hard to answer a question Yes or No and feel a need to explain why their answer is not what they think the public wants. But in the end, the answers from the Republican candidates running in this primary election came up like this: District 1 Will Bennett Yes; Jim Brooks No. District 3 Jeri Canale Yes; Nadine Elliott-Tedstone Yes; and Ron Handley No. I hope this helps you answer the question, Who doI vote for?

Ruth made friends easily a nd kept some of them for life. Her sense of humor,a sense of empathy,a positive attitude and a ready smile, and being helpful wheneverp ossible,was her formula for friendship. She leaves behind many friends who it is certain will miss her many attributes. An incomplete listo f friends are:Ted Phalem Sr.,Marge Tousignant,Jane Nargelovic,Lyn and Jim Craft,Dr. Reed and Charlotte Bowman,Dr. Mark and Nancy Deyrup,Lorraine Hutchins,Luisa and Gary Garrett,Doris and Tony Zurita,Bernadine Krainak, Clarice Carter,Ann Weekly, Joan Morgan,Shirley Eckles,the Family Arrieta, the Molina Family,and Fred and Charlotte Lohrer. Ruth was an avid birdwatcher and participated in many official bird counts, keeping exact records of sightings. She was the very first editor of the Highlands County Audubon Society newsletter and held that position for many years. She particularly enjoyed her volunteer job at the Archbold Biological Station,happy to interact with school children who came to the facility on their field trips. She loved to read books with historical backgrounds and devouredbooks on science-fiction. Sewing was one of her specialties,having worked for the Singer Sewing Machine Co. for several years. Some of her creationswere displayed in the store front so that people could see what could be accomplished on a sewing machine. Moving from Beechhurst, N.Y.,to Florida was the right thing to do as the weather and clean sandy beaches beckoned,as Ruth loved to swim in the ocean as well as any available good pool. Ruth was a member of the St. James Catholic Church in Lake Placid and enjoyed attending Mass,singing in her lovely voice,all the h ymns. Folks sitting nearby would always compliment her on that voice,saying how much they enjoyed listening. S he will be remembered as a lovely,caring person t hat always looked for the good sideof any persona nd who firmly believed that God is always in control. Through all her illness,her belief in God never wavered. It is said that God will d esignate a star with a persons name who loved on Earth in an exemplary manner. One can believe that such a star will be so desig-n ated,and named Ruth. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated Saturday,Aug. 18 at 11 a.m. at St. James Catholic Church. Father Luis Albarracin will be the celebrant. Music will be under the direction,and performed by,Lorraine Garner. Lector will be Sheila Byatt,and Marge Tousignant will have some closing words in memory of Ruth. Ruths cremated remains will be deposited in the Memorial Garden Section at St. James Church,the day of the service. It is recommended that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Good Shepherd Hospice, 1110 Hammock Road, Sebring,FL 33870,or any recognized organization dedicated to the preservationprotection of environmentally sensitive lands and waters, and the protection of wildlife,especially birds, such as the Nature Conservancy,Sierra Club and Audubon Society.

Continued from page 2A Centennial week to be full of activities News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY A two-car crash on State Road 17, at the Lake Lotela Road-Lake Angelo intersection snarled traffic early Monday afternoon. In the course of the collision, an SUV hit a power pole sideways, snapping live wires which fell into the street, on the SUV and in the swale. The live wires set grass smoldering. They also made rescue of three people from the two cars unusually difficult and dangerous, said one firefighter. The power had to be cut off before the smoking grass could be wet down or the two cars and debris cleared away. Traffic was limite d to one lane of the road. The Florida Highway Patrol had not issued a press release about the accident at press time.

C M Y K LIVING C SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Chefs Corner Tim Spain FAMILY FEATURES Warm weather calls for lighter fare and the simplicity of outdoor entertaining. So,take your entertaining outdoors and chill out by serving up delicious small bites paired with crisp,refreshing white wines. Pour a glass of Chardonnay and fire up the grill for savory mini pizzas topped with fresh asparagu s and marinated artichoke hearts. Then,to really heat things up,serve a spicy side of marinated green beans with a Sauvignon Blanc. End on a sweet note with zesty mini lemon cheesecakes paired with Mirassou California Moscato as close as one can get to capturing summer in a bottle. G et started with these recipe and wine pairings from Californias Mirassou Winery. For more recipe ideastobrightenupyourtablevisit www.mirassou.com or www.facebook.com/MirassouWinery.Spicy Marinated Green Beans Pair with Mirassou California Sauvignon Blanc Prep time:15 minutes Cook time:15 minutes Marinate time:several hours Makes 12 servings 1 1/2 cups white wine vinegar 1 1/2 cups water 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns 2 to 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar 2 teaspoons kosher salt 1/2 tablespoon whole mustard seed 4 cloves garlic,sliced 2 large stalks fresh dill 3/4 pound fresh green beans,ends trimmed Place all ingredients except green beans in a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Place green beans in shallow dish and pour boiling marinade over top. Let cool,then place in plastic bag and refrigerate several hours or until ready to serve,turning bag occasionally.Mini Moscato CheesecakesPair with Mirassou California Moscato Prep time:20 minutes Cook time:20 to 25 minutes Makes 24 mini cheesecakes 1 cup finely ground gingersnap cookies 2 tablespoons butter,melted 12 ounces cream cheese,at room temperature 1/2 cup sugar 2 tablespoons flour 2 tablespoons Mirassou Moscato 1 teaspoon each:vanilla and lemon extract 1 egg,plus 1 egg yolk,beaten Store bought lemon curd, lemon zest, mint and fresh raspberries (if desired) Preheat oven to 350F,and spray a 24 cup mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Stir together ground gingersnaps and butter in a small bowl. Press about 1 1/2 teaspoons into each cup then press firmly into the bottom of each. Brush any crumbs off the top of the muffin pan and set aside. Beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth; beat in flour,Moscato and extracts on low speed. Add eggs and beat just until combined. Spoon equal amounts into each cup (they will be very full). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until filling feels set to the touch. Let cool completely,and then run a small thin knife around the edge of each to remove from pan. Place on a platter and top each with lemon curd,lemon zest,mint and fresh raspberries,as desired. Grilled Artichoke and Asparagus Mini PizzasPair with Mirassou California Chardonnay Prep time:20 minutes Cook time:15 minutes Makes 4 servings 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil,divided 1 cup 2-inch pieces fresh asparagus,halved lengthwise 1/2 cup pitted mixed olives,cut into wedges 1/4 cup roasted red peppers,cut into thin strips 2 tablespoons chopped roasted garlic 1 6-ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1 14to 16-ounce ball of pizza dough 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup grated dry jack cheese (plus additional for topping) Toasted walnuts (optional topping) Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and cook for 1 minute. Stir in olives,peppers,garlic and artichoke hearts; cook for a few minutes more to heat through. Season with salt and pepper; set aside and keep warm. Divide pizza dough into two equal pieces. Roll each out into an 8 x 10inch oval on a lightly floured board,and brush both sides with remaining olive oil. Grill over medium-high heat for about 1 minute on each side or until puffed and lightly charred. Reduce heat to low and top with cheeses; cook for 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted, rotating pizzas once or twice to help cook evenly. Top with vegetable mixture and additional dry jack and walnuts,if desired. Warm-Weather WineChoice:WhiteorRed? White wines are perfectly refreshing for warm-weather fare,but what a bout options for red wine lovers? David Mirassou,wine expert and sixth generation of Americas oldest winemaking family,recommends Pinot Noir,a light and versatile red wine that can pair just as nicely with lighter dishes and small bites as many white wines. After all,Mirassou says,just because the weather changes doesnt mean your preference for red wine has to change with it. Have you ever heard of a maranth or quinoa? They are part of the super grains and c ontain protein as well as amino acids. I love to eat these kinds of foods and they can be prepared in a wide variety of recipes. I like tou se them as stuffing when serving game hens or maybe e ven make a cold composed salad,to which I might and some curry,pecans andr aisins. I first started working with a maranth in Montana,where we served it on our lunch buffet at the ranch I workeda t in Big Sky. I quickly developed a liking to this grain. It is very easy to cook a nd has a wonderful texture. I suggest you try the recipe I have included with either quinoa or amaranth and you will find it has a lot of flavor and is good for you,too. I also suggest that you c ook yourself a nice piece of salmon and serve the fish on top of your super grain stir fry. If you take some of your amaranth seed and get it to germinate,it will produce ah ealth plant that when in bloom will have an awesome v iolet-colored bloom. If you can get it to go to seed you will have more amaranth than you know what to do with. Cheers,Chef.Amaranth or Quinoa Stir-Fry2 cups cooked amaranth o r quinoa 2 Tbsp. oil 1 onion,chopped 1 carrot,sliced 1 celery stalk,sliced 1 cup mushrooms,sliced 3 cloves garlic,chopped fine 1/2 cup almonds,chopped 1/4 cup sunflower seeds 2 Tbsp. soy sauce 1 Tbsp. miso paste Saut veggies,garlic, almonds and seeds in the oil until vegetables are tender crisp. Add soy sauce,seasonings and amaranth or quinoa. Mix well until warmed through. Tim Spain is System Executive Chef with Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and Morrison Healthcare Food Service. He can be reached at tim.spain@ahss.org/. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Super grains MCT Amaranth is really a seed but is often used as a grain. It can be used whole, popped like corn, flaked or ground as flour. Its glutenfree and high in protein, fiber, calcium and iron.

C M Y K D ear Abby: My grandfather recently went to jail for having child pornography on his laptop. The lawyersa nd everyone else say he molested me and my sister. I almost had to testify. Im only 13 and have talked with people,but they dont get it. I dont want to talk to a therapist or anyt hing,but my mom and aunt think I should. Should I? I feel really sad right now. I first learned about this two years ago,b ut it still hurts. I kind of feel uncomfortable talking a bout it to people other than m y best friends. I write sad p oetry to express my feelings and it helps some. I dont know what to do. I s like Im stuck in a rut. What should I be feeling? Do I need to talk to someone? Should I open upm ore? Unsure of My Feelings Dear Unsure: If your g randfather is in jail,and the lawyers and everyone elsesay he molested you and your sister,then he probably did. The two of y ou may not have understood what was happening because he led you tob elieve what he was doing w as normal behavior. (This i s standard operating proced ure for a molester.) P art of the reason for y our sadness may be that y our trust was violated. Talking to a therapist is nota punishment. Its actually a privilege,and I hope that you and your sister will take advantage of it. A therapist can give you morei nsight than your friends c an give you. Y our mom and your aunt have your best interests at heart,so please listen to them. A therapist can help you open up more,and your sadness will dissipate. Dear Abby: I love my w ife very much,but over the years we have drifted apart. At one time we cons idered separating,but we went to a marriage counselor and worked most things out. My wife is the only woman in the world for me, but my feelings are at the bottom of her priorities. I give her nightly foot massages and tell her how much she means to me. She never returns any pleasures. She has told me that sex is not enjoyable for her and she does it only to please me. I love her dearly,however the romance is gone. Is it possible to rekindle the long-lost fire? Lonely,Unimportant Husband in North Carolina Dear Lonely: I hate to appear negative,but the way you have described your marriage,I doubt it. I also have to question why you think a woman who is so withholding is the only woman in the world for you. You have describedw hat she is getting from you,but what are you r eceiving in return besides passive rejection? D ear Abby: I am torn between two decisions. I a m a 40-year-old teacher,but I h ave always wanted to be in law enforcement. I didnt p ursue my dream because my fiancee would not marry me if I went into police work. I have done well over the y ears,but my heart will not let go of being in law e nforcement. My wife gives me the you have a good job and you need to save fory our kidsspeech. I feel if I dont at least try to pursue m y dream it will always bug me. Should I suck it up,do m y time and be unfulfilled for the next 10 years? I feel like the old you can be whatever you want to be speech is an injustice toc hildren if you as a parent cant live up to this rule. What do you think about all this? Living a Lie in P ennsylvania Dear Living a Lie: I t hink that at age 40 you should be allowed to dow hat you want with your life. However,if you decide to pursue police work,you should make certain your family will be well-provid-e d-for in case something happens to you in your high-risk new career.

No they arent theneighbors of the Sopranos. The Solanaceae family is more commonlyknown as the nightshade family. Its name has lots of folks assuming that these foods are grown in thedark of night with fairies waving their magical wands over themremoving any need for the sun. What? Not everyone thinks that? Lol The truth is,nobody really knows why the word nightshade has comeinto the equation at all. The name comes from the Latin Solanumfor the nightshade plant,probably because some of the flowers on theseplants resemble the rays of the sun. Regardless of where the name comes from,a lot of agricultural cropsbelong to this family, inacluding potatoes,hot peppers,tomatoes andtobacco. Now,nightshade plants can be nasty little troublemakers of the foodworld. Thats because they are rich in alkaloids some of them areeven toxic to animals and humans. Did you know that once upon a time eggplants and tomatoes were onlyused as ornamental objects because they were thought to be poisonous?Mmm! Pass the moussaka not! So what problems are caused by these nightshade f oods? Nightshades have negative effects on our joint function, our digestion(those pesky lectins again) and our nervemuscle function. You might think youre eating a very healthy diet with lots of salads(topped with green peppers and tomatoes) and chicken (stir fried withbell peppers and a shot of hot sauce for flavor) only to wonder whyyoure in pain so much of the time. If you suffer from arthritis,gout or osteoarthritis,try cutting outplants from the nightshade family for a month,and you may notice apretty significant change in the way you feel. This also applies toanyone suffering from nerve-muscle related problems. Actually,why dont you all do that? Cut out potatoes, tomatoes,peppers,and other foods in the nightshade family that you can findfrom a little bit of research into the S olanaceae family. Do it for amonth then take note of how you feel. Then go whole hog and stuffyourself with nightshades again for comparison sakes. Youll knowpretty soon if you havea sensitivity to these foods or not. Oh by the way,you know those little green spots and sprouted spots onpotatoes? Those are indicators of alkaloid content in those spuds, soeither cut out the bad parts or dont eat em. So now you have the scoop on nightshades. Any questions? Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of 'Body Clutter' and the Saving Dinner series.

Shining the light on nightshades Dinner Diva Leanne Ely Girl abused by grandfather is reluctant to open up Dear Abby WASHINGTON (AP For the first time in two decades,a woman has been tapped to moderate a presidential debate. CNNs Candy Crowley will moderate one of three October debates between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney,the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Monday. Jim Lehrer of PBS and Bob Schieffer of CBS News will moderate the other two debates. Lehrer will question the candidates during the first debate on Oct. 3 at the University of Denver, focused on domestic topics. Crowles Oct. 16 debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead,N.Y.,will use a town hall format,allowing undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization to directly question the candidates. Foreign and domestic policy questions will both be fair game. Another female journalist,Martha Raddatz of ABC News,will moderate an Oct. 11 debate at Centre College in Danville,Ky.,between Vice President Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan. The debate season will draw to a close on Oct. 22 with a foreign policy-focused debate moderated by Schieffer at Lynn University in Boca Raton. All the debates are scheduled for 9 p.m. EST. The commission said it will also launch an Internetbased initiative to educate voters before the debates about the issues that are likely to come up. re pleased with the selection of the moderators by the debate commission,and look forward to vigorous and substantive debates this fall,said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina. Pointing out that the first debate will take place less than 10 miles from the sites of both the Aurora, Colo.,shootings last month and the 1999 Columbine attacks,the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence urged Lehrer on Monday to ask Romney and Obama during the debate for their plans to prevent gun deaths. When Crowley takes the stage in Hempstead,it will be the first time a woman has moderated a presidential debate since Carole Simpson of ABC News, who refereed a 1992 debate between President George Bush,Bill Clinton and Ross Perot. Crowles selection came after three teenage girls from Montclair,N.J.,organized an online petition drive to persuade the commission to pick a woman. More than 122,000 signatures were on the petition when the moderators were announced Monday. omen and men will never be truly equal in our CNNs Crowley to moderate Oct. presidential debate Page 2C N ews-Sun l W ednesday, August 15, 2012 www.newssun.com

C M Y K By FRAZIER MOORE AP Television WriterNEW YORK Viewers were incensed Sunday night when NBC cut away from the Olympicsconclusion to air a sitcom featuring a monkey. During 16 days from London,the sprawl of Olympics coverage was seemingly indomitable,running roughshod through the NBC schedule. Yet Sundays package of highlights from the closing ceremony deferred meekly to the preview of a new NBC comedy, Animal Practice,which then was followed by a halfhour of local news. When taped Olympics coverage came to a grinding halt at 11 p.m. Eastern time, viewers were advised that the festivities would resume in one hour. Accordingly,at midnight Ryan Seacrest greeted viewers who had chosen to stick it out. elcome to the London closing party,he chirped. Now its time for the big finale. That would be a medley pounded out by The Who. Songs included such favorites as Baba ORile and My Generation,but not,as put-upon viewers might have noted,ont Get Fooled Again:After all the build-up,The Who were on hand for just eight minutes. Olympics host Bob Costas then delivered a rhapsodic postscript before declaring a wrap for NBCs Olympics coverage at 12:35 a.m. For this,viewers had waited an extra hour on a work night. And by then,many of them might have been wondering why the ceremony package couldnt have aired intact, ending conveniently at 11:08 p.m. and only slightly delaying NBCs monkey business. Agitated viewers with a long memory were likening Sundays Who-Airs-When fiasco to NBCs Heidi moment nearly four decades earlier. That was the faceoff between the Oakland Raiders and the New York Jets on Nov. 17,1968,when Oakland scored two touchdowns in the games final minute to overwhelm New Yorks 32-29 lead. But viewers in the East didnt see the impossible comeback,because NBC broke away from the game with the Jets still ahead to air its TV film Heidiat the scheduled 7 p.m. start time. There was no Twitter then, but there was Sunday night and it lit up with complaints. No better way to turn people off a new show than to preempt the who & other rock legends for it,tweeted Nate Barlow. And Nina L. Diamond voiced her ire in even stronger terms:I think NBC has managed to become even less popular than Congress. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, August 15, 2012Page 5C E.O.

London brought the curtain down on a hugely entertaining Olympics with a sensational rock n roll nostal-g ia tour of a closing ceremony that thrilled the London night with top-of-the-chart classics,supermodels and psychedelic mayhem. A fter a glorious two weeks of never-to-be-forgotten moments that left Britaine xhausted,exhilarated and deeply proud,organizers handed the baton to 2016h ost Brazil,which must now take up the Herculean task o f matching them. Judging by the swaying samba of Marisa Monte andt he sexy baritone of Seu Jorge in Brazils eightm inute musical and visual postcard for the 2016 games, they look to be off to a footstomping start. But Sunday was all about B ritain. The three-hour extravag anza offered a sensory blast including rock nroll rickshaws,dustbin percussion-i sts,an exploding yellow car and a marching band in red t unics and bearskin hats. The Spice Girls staged a show-stopping reunion,and M onty Pythons Eric Idle sauntered through Always Look on the Bright Side of Life accompanied by Roman centurions,Scottishb agpipers and a human cannonball. It all made for a madcap mashup that had 80,000 fans at Olympic Stadium stomp-i ng,cheering and singing along. Organizers estimated 3 00 million or more were watching around the world. W hat a way to end a games far more successful than many Londoners expected. Early security glitches were conquered witht he help of the military,road traffic was manageable and the wettest early summer on record gave way to mostly sunny skies. More impor-t antly,British athletes overachieved. It all came with a price tag of $14 billion three times the original estimate. But nobody wanted to spoil the fun with such mundane concerns,at least not on this night. e lit the flame,and we lit up the world,said London organizing committee chief Sebastian Coe. When our time came, Britain,we did it right. International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge declared the Olympics over with praise f or the athletes. Through your commitment to fair play,your r espect for opponents,and your grace in defeat as well as in victory,you have earned the right to be called Olympians,he said,adding: These were happy and glorious games. But the night was about splash more than speeches. Festive and fast-moving, t he ceremony opened with pop bands Madness,Pet S hop Boys and One Direction,a shout-out toW inston Churchill and a tribute to the Union Jack the Olympic Stadium floor arranged to resemble the British flag. M onochrome recreations of London landmarks were covered in newsprint,from Big Bens clock tower and Tower Bridge to the LondonE ye ferris wheel and the chubby high-rise known as the Gherkin. Street percussion group Stomp built the noise into a frenzy,and dancers brandished brooms,in a nod to the spontaneous popular movement to clean up London after riots shook neighborhoods not far from Olympic Stadium just a year ago. Liam Gallagher performed onderwall,a 1990s hit by his former band,Oasis, Muse rocked the house with the hard-edged Olympic anthem Survival,and Queen guitarist Brian May was joined by singer Jessie J for a crowd-pleasing We Will Rock You. The headline performers were each paid a pound,a little more than $1.50. The night ended with the extinguishing of the multipetaled Olympic cauldron and a supercharged rendition of My Generationand other classics by The Who that had the crowd dancing in the aisles. Confetti rained down,and fireworks lit up t he sky. Prince Williams wife, Kate,and Prince Harry took s eats next to Rogge. They sang along to God Save the Queen.There was no sign of the queen herself,who made a memorable mockp arachute entrance at the July 27 opening ceremony. Following Olympic tradition,the 10,800 athletes of the London Games marchedi n as one rather than with their nations,symbolizing t he harmony and friendship inspired by the games. A s the crowd cheered their heroes and flashbulbs rippled through the stadium,the Olympians cheered back, some carrying national flags,o thers snapping photographs with smartphones and cameras. They held hands, embraced and carried eacho ther on their shoulders, finally forming a human mosh pit on the field. The ceremony had something for everyone,from tween girls to 1960s hippies. The face of John Lennon appeared on the stadium floor,assembled by 101 fragments of sculpture,and just as quickly gave way to George Michael,Fatboy Slim and Annie Lennox. Britons,who had fretted for weeks that the games would become a fiasco,were buoyed by their biggest medal haul since 1908 29 golds and 65 medals in all. The United States edged China in both the gold medal and total medal standings, e clipsing its best performa nce at an Olympics on foreign soil after the Dream Team narrowly held off Spain in basketball for the countrys 46th gold. While the games may ha ve l acked some of the grandeur of the Beijing Olympics in 2008,there were more than a few unforgettable moments. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt became an Olympic l egend by repeating as champion in both the 100-meter and 200-meter sprints. Michael Phelps ended hisl ong career as the most dec orated Olympian in history. British distance runner Mo Farah became a national treasure by sweeping the5 ,000and 10,000-meter r aces,and favorite daughter Jessica Ennis became a glo b al phenomenon with her vict ory in the heptathlon. Female athletes took center stage in a way they never h ad before. American gymnast Gabby Douglas soared t o gold and the U.S. soccer team made a dramatic marc h to the championship. Packed houses turned out to watcht he new event of womens boxing. And women compe ted for Saudi Arabia,Qatara nd Brunei for the first tim e And then there was Oscar P istorius,the doubleamputee from South Africa running on carbon-fiberb lades,who didnt win a medal but nonetheless left a champion. And sprinter Manteo Mitchell,who com pleted his leg of the 4x400 relay semifinal on a brokenl eg,allowing his team to qualify and win silver. Britons seemed exhauste d a nd exhilarated after two glorious weeks in the worlds spotlight,just months after the country ce lebrated the queens 60th year on the throne with am agnificent pageant and street parties. Some at Olympic Park a cknowledged happy surprise that not much had gon e wrong,and so much had gone right. I was a bit worried we wouldnt be able to live up to it,said Phil Akrill of Chichester. But walking around here its just unbelievable. Even non-Brits were proud of their adopted hom eland. s just been a really nice thing to see,said Anj a Ekelof,a Swede who now lives in Scotland.

Elvis Presley left behind hit songs, epic performances,some soso movies and an image as a handsome,rebellious,talent-e d and sometimes-troubled artist that remains indelibly marked in Americas pop culture psyche 35 years after his death. Presley also left behind m emories held closely and deeply by the songwriters a nd musicians who not only helped him work his magic in the studio and onstage,b ut also worked hard to keep his music alive today. Many d escribed him as intelligent, humble and generous. DJ Fontana,Elvislongtime drummer,met Presley during the popular Louisiana Hayrideshows in the early 1950s. Fontana, w ho still tours and plays Elvis songs,said Presley rarely rehearsed and alwaysa ppeared cool. He never did prepare for n othing,early on,Fontana said. Every time he came onstage he was ready. Hen ever did get really nervous, you know. Fontana,studio musician B obby Wood and others are playing a 35th-anniversary t ribute concert in Memphis on Thursday,commemorating the day Presley died in 1977 at 42. The event is part of Elvis Week,the annualc elebration of all things Elvis that includes the candlelight vigil at his mansion, Graceland,on the eve of the death anniversary. Elvis Week will draw a bout 75,000 fans. Ex-wife Priscilla Presley and daughter Lisa Marie Presley aree xpected to attend the concert,which will include live m usicians playing along with video footage of Elvis singing. A lso in attendance will be songwriter Mike Stoller,who teamed with the late Jerry L eiber to form a songwriting duo that today is enshrined i n the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Stoller appeared at a songwriters forum at Graceland on Saturday. Leiber and Stoller wrote a n impressive roster of pop, country,R&B and rock n roll classics,including Elvis recordings Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock, and Loving You. S toller recalls being impressed with Presles hard work and his manners.W hen they met,Stoller had to tell Elvis to refer to the s ongwriters who were only two years older as Jerry and Mike,not sir. D uring the recording of Jailhouse Rock,Stoller was sure they had nailed it o n the ninth take. He was already up to t ake 25,26,and he kept saying,I think I can do it better,Stoller said. Finally he said,Wheres that one that you liked?We wentb ack and played it and he said,eah,thats it,thats cool. When Big Mama Thornton first released Hound Dog in 1953,it was a womans s ong about a low-class man who was cryinall the time. H er recording was a hit in black communities but hardl y known among whites, Stoller said. When Presley sang it,it changed. On ther ecord and in his gyrating performances,the young Elvis portrayed a masculine s exuality that helped turn Hound Dogfrom a w omans song into a mans. He also brought the song to a worldwide audience. It still had the same attitude,Stoller said. I thinkt hats what Elvis liked,that kind of snarly attitude. The way Stoller found out that Hound Dogwas a hit is quite remarkable. Stoller was returning from a threem onth stay in Europe on the ocean liner Andrea Doria when it collided with theS tockholm and sank near Nantucket,Mass.,on July 2 5,1956. About 50 people died and more than 1,600 were rescued. S toller was picked up by a freighter that brought rescued passengers to New Y ork. Leiber met Stoller at the dock. When I came in and went down the gangplank onto solid ground,he was there at the dock running up and the first thing he said to me was, Mike,we got a smash hit, Stoller said. I said,oure kidding.He said,Hound Dog.I said,Big Mama Thornton? He said,No,some white k id named Elvis Presley. Presles career eventually slowed down,and he lostp opularity to acts like The Beatles and The Rolling S tones. But a 1968 television musical show,referred to as the Comeback Special,s howed that Elvis had returned as a revitalized, handsome,vocally strong p erformer. He then went back to M emphis,teaming up with The Memphis Boys,an accomplished and highly respected band at American Sound Studios,on thea lbums From Elvis in Memphisand Elvis:Back in Memphis.The Memphis Boys backed Presley on the hits In the Ghettoand Suspicious Minds.

C M Y K By JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunSEBRING For the S ebring Blue Streaks, this years football schedule is the same as last year. The same teams in the s ame order, the only difference being where the games w ill be played. If it was an away game last s eason, this time around, its at home which will save a l ot of driving, given that the farthest away games are at Winter Haven and Kathleen in Lakeland. And while the travel will see a turnaround, so too is second-year coach LaVaar Scott hoping to see the teamsfortunes. First year is gone, he said. But its like it never stops. Once the season is over you start working on the next season. Even though the record may not indicate it, I think a lot of things got accomplished last year and the kids know what to expect now Defensively, Sebring was solid against some highoctane teams and gave up just under 18 points a game last year. But it was on offense that the Streaks had itsproblems. Take away the 45 points put up against Avon Park, Sebring averaged a little over nine points per game. Offense is where we definitely need a big improvement up front and being more consistent without making mistakes, Scott said. Scott pointed out that being unable to score, or turning the ball over, was the difference in being a 4-6 team instead of a 7-3 team. There were three games, in particular, that Scott referred to as showcasing that difference. Against Frostproof, the team lost five fumbles inside Frostproofs 20-yard line in a 20-12 loss. At highly-ranked American Heritage, the Streaks had the ball eight times inside the 2-yard line and could not score in a 13-3 loss. The third game was against Bartow, where they had the ball at the YellowJackets 20 while trailing 8-6 with less than a minute and a half left in the game. Afield goal would have won the game instead an interception ended the threat. I want to see less mental mistakes this year, Scott said. We beat ourselves in three games. Sebrings schedule consists of four teams that are currently ranked in the top 100 in the state, whereas Sebring is currently ranked 182. I put our schedule up against anybodys out there. stated Scott. Every team we play has at least two kids with Division I offers, and here we come with normal high school football players that want to be good. I think the kids are looking forward to it, I know I am looking forward to it.

For even from a distance the two new murals by Sebring graduate John Ritter are eye-catching. And when fans get the chance to gander up close at the paintings along the outer walls below the grandstand, they will both a fantastic new look and a long-held wish finally come to pass. One features an oversized ball and glove against a dark brown backdrop, while the other is somewhat a timeline of Sebring baseball. I was always interested in art as a hobby, but was more into sports through high school, the graduate said. I took a few art classes at Sebring and in junior college, and thats when I really picked up painting. I was asked randomly to do a few murals about seven years ago and they didnt stink, so I just kept up with it. And while he credits his teachers with some of his progress, Ritter has also done a lot of self teaching. Like anything, to be any good, you have to put your own time in, he said.

T he two-race series (slated to grow to four next year) is p resented by The Jarrett Family Foundation and Thakkar Family Foundation to benefit Julies Funds for Kids, a Highlands Family YMCAscholarship program.

At this level, even though we had strong local athletes and a regionally-ranked juni or racer from Germany competing, the whole point of t riathlon is getting our children, the communitys children, outside and doing something. We just happen be focused on swimming, cycling and running.

C M Y K Associated PressJACKSONVILLE For two years now, Terrance Knighton and Tyson Alualu have been fixtures at defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Knighton has started all but three games the last three years, missinga trio of games a year ago due to an ankle injury. Alualu has answered the call for 32 consecutive games the past two seasons since the Jaguars made him their No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft. But things could be different this year. Both incumbents are being pushed by a pair of relative unknowns. C.J. Mosley has moved ahead of Knighton on the depth chart and started last Fridays preseason game against the New York Giants. DAnthony Smith, who is pushing Alualu, was also a starter, but Alualu was held out by the coaching staff as a precautionary measure. Both Knighton and Alualu had offseason surgeries. Alualus surgery was in January and was done to clean up some issues with his knee that hampered his play a year ago. He had the benefit of extra months to rehab and was nearly 100 percent by the time training camp opened. Knighton underwent eye surgery in April following a melee at a local nightclub in which he was struck in the eye with a bottle. Last week the surgeon who performed the operation said it was miraculous that Knighton didnt lose his sight in the eye. With Knighton forced to miss all of the offseason drills, he was behind others when training camp opened. Mosley was quick to take advantage of the opening and has performed well thus far. Winning a starting spot on the Dline was not a priority coming into camp, he said. I just came in here thinking I would give it everything I had, said Mosley. Whats happening at the position, thats up to the coaches to decide. My job is to go out there and play hard every play of every series. Mosley appeared in 15 games with the Jaguars a year ago with a career-high three starts. The Jaguars apparently liked what they saw in the former sixthround pick of the Minnesota Vikings, rewarding him with a three-year, $7.5 million deal. Thats given Mosley added incentive to perform well. Sure thats an inspiration for me to prove that Im worthy of the deal, he said. But like anything Ive got to keep working hard. Nothing is etched in stone. My teammate T. Knighton is working very hard. I love him. We push each other every day Mosley has shed some weight, which he feels will benefit his overall game. Ayear ago he was in the 312-315 range but hes dropped nearly 10 pounds and will play at 305-307 this season. Coach (Joe should drop five pounds every year youre in the league, Mosley said. I like it. I feel better. Most of my weight is in my stomach or my legs.I feel more flexible and a little more bouncy When Knighton was out with an ankle injury for three games a year ago, Mosley stepped in and performed well. His stock has been on the rise since that time, Cullen said. When Terrance went down, C.J. had to start a few games and played great technique, Cullen said. He played really well on the run game and brought us a little bit on the rush. It was a career year Knighton knows hes in for a fight to reclaim his starting spot. For now, he admits Mosley deserves to be the starter. He (C.J. the offseason and the OTAs to be the starter. Ive got to earn it back. In theory, both could be called starters as both will play about equal snaps. The same holds true for the other battle between Alualu and Smith. Smiths problem in the past has been his ability to stay healthy. He missed his rookie season in 2010 with an Achilles injury and followed that with a season-ending toe injury last year. Both times he was placed on injured reserve before the season started. Im playing with a sense of eagerness, Smith said. Ive been waiting a long time for this. Cullen likes what hes seen in Smith so far. DAnthony was snake-bitten but thats behind him, the Jaguars defensive line coach said. Theres great competition at that position but he has the skills and the qualities. Hes really playing well to this point. NOTES: The news isnt gettin g better regarding the Jaguars injury situation. Backup C/G John Estes suffered a knee injury in the Giants game on Friday and he may need surgery. Hes out for the rest of the preseason for sure and it could be season-ending. CB Derek Coxhurt hurt a hamstring and will likely miss the next two preseason games. The only good news coming on the injury front was that starting G Will Rackley was progressing faster than expected and may by back by the third preseason game at Baltimore on August 23 ... Less than a week after signing his contract and reporting to training camp, firstround draft pick Justin Blackmon was elevated to the first team offense ... Special teams coordinator John Bonamego had praise for P Brian Anger, who was credited with three 50-yard punts, including a 58yarder that Bonamego said had a hang time of 5.4 seconds.

VH1 pulled from its schedule the reality series Ev and Ocho, starring newlyweds Johnson formerly known as Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada. T he network announced t he move Monday, citing the seriousness of the allegations against Johnson, and said it had no plans to air the show. The Dolphins terminated Johnsons contract Sunday night, about 24 hours after he w as arrested in a domestic battery case involving Lozada, who is on the reality TVshow Basketball Wives. Ev and Ocho was conceived as a spinoff and had been slated to debut Sept. 3. The Dolphinsdecision to release Johnson left coach Joe Philbin with a dearth of experience at receiver and a potential backlash in thel ocker room. Philbin decided Johnsons knack for outlandish antics were a detriment that out-w eighed potential contributions from the six-time Pro B owl receiver. It wasnt about one spec ific thing. It just wasnt going to work, Philbin said. It didnt feel like to me that this fit was going to be right for us as an organization, or for Chad. It was time to move on. It wasnt done to send a message. It was done because it just didnt feel right. Several players came to Johnsons defense, saying he was a good teammate and friend during his two months with the Dolphins (No. 27 in the APPro32). Linebacker Karlos Dansby said he was upset about the teams handling of the matter because he felt Johnson deserved another chance. Safety Reshad Jones agreed the decision to let Johnson go seemed hasty. It was shocking to see he was going to be released a day after the incident, Jones said. It is pretty disappointing. But that was up to the coaching staff. Philbin, a first-year head coach, said he wasnt worried about losing the locker room. But he did take issue with Dansby sounding off publicly. Im of the opinion that you should keep things in house in that regard, Philbin said. The 34-year-old Johnson had been trying to revive his career after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011. He pledged to focus on football, then annoyedP hilbin by frequently using profanity during an entertaining but R-rated session with reporters. I n the Dolphinsexhibition opener Friday against Tampa B ay, he dropped the only pass thrown his way. O n Monday, the teams other wideouts had trouble hanging onto the ball. Again and again, an accurate throw wound up on the ground, suggesting the modest reputation of the passcatching corps is welldeserved. What does Philbin think of the group? I wish we caught the ball a little better this morning, he said. The position was considered perhaps the teams weakest even with Johnson T he remaining wideouts have combined for 490 career catches and 21 touchdowns, compared with Johnsons 766 and 67. Some of them arent as well known, and maybe dont have a history of product ion, Philbin said. But at some point youve got to have faith in people. Im confident that were going to get good receiving play here. The situation looks especially grim because Brian Hartline, a starter the past two years, has missed all of training camp with a calf injury. Davone Bess is an experienced possession receiver, but newcomer Legedu Naanee has been plagued in recent years by recurring foot injuries, and the rest of the c ast is unproven. Roberto Wallace, who didt catch a pass last season, led the Dolphins in receiving yards in their exhibition opener. The young guys get a little more opportunity, Bess s aid. Theyve got to step up. Not that the wideouts are Miamis lone area of concern. The quarterback position remains undecided, with holdover Matt Moore and first-round draft pick Ryan Tannehill battling for the job now that veteran David G arrard is sidelined by a knee injury. And the first-team defense played poorly against Tampa B ay. Given the overall outlook, Johnson might be missed mostly for his comic relief. The mood of the team? Weve got to get better regardless, Dansby said. If we lose one guy, weve just got to keep pressing forward. Weve got a lot of things to do, a lot of goals and a lot of i mproving to do. We went out there and laid an egg as a team. Weve got to get be t ter Chad Johnsons new reality show is pulled by VH1 Associated PressTAMPA The NFLcan be a cruel business for players on the fringes of a roster, and nobody knows it better than Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood. Underwood spent most of the 2011 season and postseason including Super Bowl week with the New England Patriots, but coach Bill Belichick released him the night before the bigg ame. It was tough, Underwood recalled Monday, but coach Belichick makes all his roster decisions on Saturday whether its Week 1 or the day before the Super Bowl. It doesnt matter U nderwood was replaced on the roster by defensive tackle Alex Silvestro, who didnt play in the Patriots 21-17 loss to the New York Giants. (Belichick decision and I was one of the latter guys on the depth chart, so its part of the business, Underwood explained. Hes going to make the best decision forh is team for that game, and he did that. As if to make it a little worse, the Patriots re-signedh im two days after the Super Bowl, then released him a gain three months later. The 25-year-old signed w ith the Bucs (No. 26 in the APPro32) in May, and so f ar he is making the most of it. The 6-foot-1, 187-pounder has been one of the most impressive receivers in the training camp. He caught three passes in Friday nights preseason opener at Miami, including a 44-yard catch in double coverage to set up a touchdown. s trying to make the club. Im not sure where he fits in yet, said coach Greg Schiano. He did have a good game the other night. I think consistency is going to be the key. He works hard and he understands what we want in this program, so if he can be consistent, hes got a good chance. One thing Underwood understands is Schiano, his head coach at Rutgers from 2005-08. B ut Underwood laughed at the suggestion that his history with Schiano might give him an edge. You know how this league is, he said. At the e nd of the day it doesnt matter if youve played for a guy o r not. In this league its about doing your job, maki ng plays and getting judged on the field. It was a lesson he learned in New England, even if his experience there ended in disappointment. Going up there changed my career, he said. The way they run their organization, I learned how to be a professional. I learned how to actually work on my craft. When youre there with Wes Welker every day, Deion Branch, the receivers, Tom (Brady the first ones in the meeting room. Watching those guys work, its no secret why theyre so successful. They practice and work so hard, and I just try to take that and bring it wherever I go. While Underwood was with the Patriots, the Bucs were losing their final 10g ames. But under Schiano, he sees some similarities. The training camps are very grueling, very hard, h e said. Both coaches demand damned-near perfection; t hey want you to give your all every day. Training camp i s about beating your body up and coming close togethe r as a team so when times get rough during the season, you stick together and dont unravel. NOTES: Mondays practice session was cut short about 20 minutes by lightning. ... LTDonald Penn, who has yet to practice because of a strained left calf, wont be hurried. Circumstances wont ever dictate behavior around here, Schiano said. ... The Bucs will play Tennessee in their preseason home opener Friday night.

By JENNYBARCHFIELD Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO The Olympic flag touched down on Brazilian soil on Monday, marking the start of four years of preparations ahead of the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro. Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes waved the five-ringed flag as he and other top officials disembarked from the flight that brought them back from London, where they attended the gamesclosing ceremony o n Sunday. Speaking at a packed news conference at Rios Tom Jobim international airport, Paes called it an important moment for Rio and for Brazil at large. He pledged the games will leave a vast legacy for Rio,t he beachside metropolis that suffered from decades of neglect after it lost national capital status to Brasilia in 1960. I see the arrival of this Olympic flag as not the start, but the consolidation of an important process of transf ormation for the city of Rio de Janeiro, he said. Rio is a city that spent the lions share of its history, much more time than it should have, looking toward the past. Im sure that this process of transformation, this turning toward the f uture, has been consolidated here. He added the most important effects of the Olympics are sometimes, many times, the intangible transformations, the impalpable ones related to the brand of a country, the brand of a city, with the self-esteem of a country Ahandful of demonstrators gathered outside the airport to protest against expulsions connected with Olympic projects and others tied to the 2014 soccer World Cup, which Brazil is also hosting. The Popular Committee for the World Cup and Olympics, which organized the protest, says as many as 170,000 people risk being removed from their homes, or already have been removed, due to projects related to the two megaevents. The group says some 4,000 people living in the socalled Vila Autodromo, where the Olympic Park is to be constructed, are facing expulsion. A ctivists have complained of a lack of consultation b etween the government and the affected communities and also of low compensation paid out to those kicked out of their homes. Asked about the governm ents plan was for the residents of Vila Autodromo, Paes responded that nothing would be done without extensive consultations. No one is going to throw anyone out of anywhere ... without there being an alternative, he said. The people will only leave there with lots of consultations, with lots of discussion, with lots of respect. He added that some of those opposed to the evictions were people who are always railing against the government. Thats why things were paralyzed for so long. They dont want anything to happen here. The Olympic flag, made out of silk for the 1988 games in Seoul, South Korea, will be temporarily housed in the City Hall and will be open to viewings by visitors. Olympic flag arrives in Rio, marking race to 2016 I see the arrival of this flag as not the start, but the consolidation of an important process of transformation for the city of Rio de Janeiro.

C M Y K t ime teams. As far as a different approach, or changes from last years game plan, Scottk nows that there will always be some change at this level. G iven the continual carrousel of high school sports, a n ever-changing list of kids coming and going, teams h ave to adapt what they do to the type of kids they have. Rather than forcing different types of players into a set system, the system has to adapt to the talent of the kids. s like Tim Tebow playing in a pro style offense, explained Scott. What did Denver do? They changed what they do to fit what Tebow does. That is what we have to do with our kids in high school, you have different groups every year Scott did agreed with the comments made on Max Preps that they were athletic, but undersized, stating that they maybe have three kids that are over 250 pounds. He was also quick to add that they may not be the biggest, but they were going to be a very physical team. Offensively and defensively, we have a good nucleus coming back, Scott said. e just need to get more points on the board. When asked if there was one game, besides Avon Park, that he or the team were looking forward to, surprisingly the answer was Frostproof. Since last years loss to the Bulldogs, the teams have also had two scrimmages, which they split, and got heated at times as players from both teams got into verbal confrontations. As for Scotts goals for his team this year, they were about the basics. I want to go out there and make someone have to beat us. If we lose to a team that has more talent, I can live with that, when we lose because of mental mistakes and turning the ball over, thatI cant live with, he said. When kids become undisciplined and start doing their own thing, being out of position, especially against good teams, you end up paying for it. Sebring is in a tough district with teams like Winter Haven and Lake Gibson, while Scott also noted that Bartow is going to be a lot better as most of their starters will be returning. And on whether he thought that Sebring would make the playoffs this year: e do not talk about playoffs. All I talk to the kids about is practicing hard and going out on Friday andd oing what we ask them to do, Scott said. There has never been a State title here, we dont talk about it. There has never been a district title here, we dont talk about it.W e just talk about our game, laying it on the line. Making someone beat us and not beating ourselves.

AUGUSTINE Gov. Rick Scott played his most visible role to date in helping Republican Mitt Romneys presidential campaign,and he had an answer Monday for Democrats who say his message about Floridas improving economy conflicts with Romneys message that the economy is still suffering because of President Barack Obamas policies. While Scott has raised money for Romney and told Republican groups to support his campaign,his introduction of Romney in front of a large rally was his largest public event for the candidate. Democrats have tried to create the perception that Romney doesnt want to appear with Scott because of the governors low approval rating. Even though we havea president that is making it much,much more difficult to do well,in Florida our economy is getting better,Scott said,adding that the states unemployment has dropped faster than all but one other state. A recent Quinnipiac University poll showed Scotts approval rating at 36 percent and Democrats have been calling him toxicto Romney. Other than thanking Scott for the introduction, Romney didnt mention him in his remarks. Scott spoke for about five minutes and appeared more energetic than he usually does,raising his voice almost to a shout. We cannot afford another four years of Barack Obama. His policies have failed us, Scott said. He actually believes his policies are working. What do you think? After the crowd shouted, No!Scott added,He doesnt get it.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Plans for a w eek-long celebration of the City of Sebrings 100th birthday are coming together. The Sebring Centennial Celebration committee has been meeting monthly for over a year to organize the festivities which begin Oct. 13 and conclude on Oct. 20. The kick-off event held back on Jan. 6 exceeded expectations,said Allen Alvater III,local historian and member of the committee. We expect our weeklong celebration Oct. 13-20 to be equally enjoyable and to have something for everyone. We particularly appreciate the generosity of Alan Jay Automotive for being our Double Platinum sponsor for the entire week. The Sebring Centennial Celebration committee released the following details for the week-long festivities. An old-fashioned bed race will take place on West Center in downtown Sebring on Oct. 13 at 11 a.m.,with DJ and emcee duties provided Sebring celebrity Rooter Rush. Community organizations,Sebring High classes, and local businesses are e xpected to enter the bed race. City Clerk and Centennial committee member Kathy Haley recalls being the passenger in a bed engineered by the Sebring Fire Department in such a bed race held in the late 1980s. Ill have to think long and hard before I do that again,said Haley,but I will definitely be a cheering spectator. On Monday,Oct. 15,the downtown streets will be closed to traffic for a huge celebration. A parade will kick off at 5:30 p.m. on a route from the Sebring Parkway,down North Ridgewood,around the Circle,and ending at the end of South Commerce. Afterward,local favorite California Toe Jam Band will provide music on the Circle, and South Ridgewood will be the scene of a giant picnic area with a variety of food v endors. We expect a huge crowd and a large number of entrants for this event,said parade organizer Alice Fairel. Participants should submit their entry forms as soon as possible while space is available. The theme of the parade is Living the Legacy.I anticipate some very creative floats and walking groups to illustrate that theme in the parade. On Wednesday evening, Oct. 17,there will be a community-wide prayer meeting at Rotary Park behind the Jack Stroup Civic Center, starting at 6 p.m. Altvater is heading up this event with the help of Commissioner Greg Harris. Two hundred two-piece chicken dinners will be available from Kentucky Fried Chicken at a cost of $5 each, or those attending are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets,Altvater said. There will be music,prayers and,I imagine,some reminiscing about the early churches in Sebring,which were an important part of George Sebrings plan to grow this community. The fun doesnt stop there. On Thursday,Oct. 18, Sebring,the Avon Park and Lake Placid Chambers of Commerce will host a TriChamber Mixer on the Circle from 5-7 p.m. At 6 p.m. a time capsule will be buried in Page 2ANews-SunWednesday, August 15, 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 Aug. 11 51332454748x:5Next jackpot $17 millionAug. 8 6918323949x:4 Aug. 4 22636374043x:3 Aug. 13 2022233133 Aug. 12 1016172021 Aug. 11 1718273134 Aug. 10 26323334 Aug. 13 (n) 1100 Aug. 13 (d) 6460 Aug. 12 (n) 4180 Aug. 12 (d) 8330 Aug. 13(n) 970 Aug. 13 (d) 925 Aug. 12(n) 419 Aug. 12 (d) 996 Aug. 10 91729418 Aug. 7 1421232412 Aug. 3 81620339 July 31 47151618 Aug. 11 413394651 PB: 1Next jackpot $305 millionAug. 8 37111528 PB: 12 Aug. 4 1930485355 PB: 18 Note:Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day:(d) is the daytime drawing,(n) is the nighttime drawing.

Dog Day of Summer at Bok Tower Gardens 4-legged guests welcome Sept. 8 By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID After a successful yet challenging high school career,former Lake Placid High School student-athlete Meesha Munnings is making plans to enter college in the upcoming weeks. Munnings graduated in June 2011 from LPHS,where she was an avid member of school groups and the basketball team. After being diagnosed with cancer,Munnings found it challenging,but not impossible,to follow her dreams after high school. Diagnosed with osteosarcoma,an aggressive form of bone cancer affecting adolescents during periods of rapid growth,just a few months before her high school graduation,Munnings pushed through a surgery that removed her femur and part of her hip. Munnings had initially planned to enter college in January but was forced to postpone college due to an unexpected return of her cancer. My cancer came back in late December (2011). I started treatments again on Jan. 4, and I had my final treatment on June 2,Munnings said. Following a second round of chemotherapy treatments for those five months at the Arnold Palmer Center in Orlando,Munnings has been declared cancer free. I got scanned again on July 3 and they came back cancer free. Everything is good right now, Munnings said. With that,the determined young woman is off to start her sophomore year of college. Munnings had already collected 21 credit hours as a high school graduate and continued taking courses during her treatments last semester. Munnings enrolled in online courses completing pre-calculus,statistics,psychology and speech communications in the summer. Ill be going to Florida State (University), Lake Placids Munnings earns ACS scholarship Munnings See CENTENNIAL,page 7A See MUNNINGS,page 5A

The letters are p rinted below in no particular order but by alphabetization of the candidates last name.Support for ArnoldEditor: There is a song titled, I Wonder As I Wander. My spouse and I no longer wander, but we certainly wonder as to what is and what has happened to our great country that was ordained by our living God? It is a well known tact that many wealthy people lost everything they had accumulated in the fight against the British and put together our Constitution, which we now live under. We are deeply concerned about the wild, unexplained spending under the guise of spreading the wealth, but in reality has caused our people to be dependent on government handouts, plus loss of jobs (9.6 percent to 14 percent unemployment, depending on the state) and the many people who have given up looking for work. It is my considered opinion that we must remove Obama and his band of socialists, plus remove in the upcoming primary (Aug. 14) all the people who voted to increase the debt limit of our country to more than $15 million. One of these people was Tom Rooney, our Congressman running for office in District 17. If you live in District 17 and are reading this letter, I recommend Joe Arnold in Congress, based on the fact T. Rooney voted to increase our national debt limit (headed for $16 trillion). I spoke with Joe Arnold and decided he is a better choice than T. Rooney for Congress for the 17th District. So lets all of us Republicans cast our vote for Joe Arnold. Charles A. Marr Avon ParkSupport for BrooksEditor: We, the citizens of Highlands County, have the opportunity to elect a new county commissioner who has over 40-plus years of combined local government and private business experience in Highlands County. I have known Jim Brooks for over 20 years and he is a proven leader and a man of integrity. Jim Brooks has a proven track record in Highlands County. As county EMS coordinator from 1980-85, he over saw taking our EMS from Basic Life Support service to Advanced Life Support. Since 1985 he has built and continues to operate an award-winning retirement community of 590 sites and over 1,000 residents. While doing this he has found time to give thousands of hours of his time to government and community service. He has been a member of county Planning and Zoning Commission since 1989. He served eight years as a member of the SFCC Board of Trustees. Additionally, he has served on numerous other government and community boards and organizations. Jim understands government and more importantly, knows what it is to operate a successful private business over the last 27 years. He has the desire and proven commitment to serve all the citizens of Highlands County. Jim Brooks has the experience in both government and the private sector to bring a common sense approach to the county commission. You can count on Jim to do his homework, always be accessible to the citizens that elect him, and have informed common sense decisions as your county commissioner. Hoz Compton Lake Placid Editor: I am pleased to endorse Jim Brooks for the Highlands County commission. I have known Jim for almost 30 years and worked very closely with him for eight years as a member of the South Florida Community College District Board of Trustees. Jim has broad experience in both the public sector and the private sector, including 23 years of volunteer service on the Highlands Planning and Zoning Commission and 27 years of developing and managing a highly successful family business from the ground up. His website -www.brooksforhighlandscounty.com provides the long list of his public service proving that Jim has indeed earned his spurs. Jim is a common sense conservative who studies problems, seeks facts and options and finds solutions that best fit the situation. We can count on Jim to always have the countys and the citizensbest interests at heart. Catherine P. Cornelius Avon Park SFCC President EmeritusSupport for CoxEditor: Wally Cox is the best choice for Superintendent of Schools. He is a proven, effective leader with 12 years of experience in this job. He is fiscally responsible, supportive to staff, open to parents, and caring for students. It has been suggested that most effective schools have instructional leaders at the helm. I would remind you that most ineffective schools also have instructional leaders in charge. What makes the difference? Does the CEO of the hospital need to be a medical doctor? Does the head of an international airport have to be a veteran pilot? Does the clerk of courts need to be a trial lawyer? Educational degrees and instructional job experience, in and of themselves, do not make an effective leader. Effective leaders, like Wally Cox, surround themselves with knowledgeable people who can focus on each aspect of the job. He is honest, hardworking, and dependable. He is a true servant leader. Wally Cox was honored as Floridas Superintendent of the Year in 2012 for his outstanding performance and leadership skills. Please make your vote count in the upcoming primary and election. Diane L. Lethbridge Retired teacher and principal Highlands County schools Editor: I am writing to recommend that residents cast their vote for Wally Cox for reelection to superintendent of Highlands County schools. I certainly plan to vote for him. I retired this year after serving as a school social worker for 23 years. I developed a real appreciation for Wally during the time I worked under his direction as superintendent. Since Wally is one of those unique individuals with a mathematical mind and a sensitive heart, I have seen him struggle emotionally with decisions that involved dealing with budget issues and cutting positions that involved job losses. His method, for the most part, was to cut through attrition when staff retired and not to fire staff. Even when cutting Continued on page 6A The News-Sun too, thinks it is an excellent idea. We completely support it, although there are some that do not, as was made clear at Monday nights meeting. The fact is, an Olympic length t riathlon has benefits that outweigh the risks. Lets begin with the fact that a high standard is already set. The Heartland Triathlon is well-organized, well-coord inated and well-prepared. Its an allaround smashing success every year and h as gained a reputation as one of the best sprint triathlons around. The new race will be compared to it. To succeed as a business, the race will, at the least, have to equal the Heartland Tri. Friendly competition could do everyone good. Then there are the number of people who will be drawn to the county to take part in the races or cheer on a loved one. Think about the percent of those people who could decide to move into the county. After all, our back roads often bend, twist and dip, and our lakes are perfect for swimming well OK, maybe not Lake Istoktoga. The point is that Highlands County is a perfect place for triathletes in training to live. And that, in turn, could lead to new triathlon related business, busier restaurants and certainly hotels, especially during race weekends. There is another benefit, although it is not as measurable and more subtle the way races like these excite people to action, set an example and inspire. Its the challenge of pushing oneself to a personal best, and exercising in the outdoors. Because of the increasing number of youth triathlons in the area, more and more children are swimming, running and biking. This we think is the greatest benefit of all wresting our children away from the PlayStation and into the sunlight. W e hope hatchets can be buried. That lessons have been learned. W e hope the community will gather behind this marvelous opportunity, which can turned to great advantage to Lake Placid and the county. Community should support triathlon in Lake Placid We applaud the Lake Placid Town Council for agreeing to move ahead with the Olympic length triathlon, kids triahtlon and duathlon proposed for next April. Five years ago my daughter picked up her drivers license you know, the official one that made it OK for her to drive without my supervision. It scared me to pieces and even though its been five years, I still get nervous when I know she is on the road. But on that day, my daughter taught me a lesson. Without hesitation, she made known her decision to be an organ donor. I remember thinking how mature and unselfish she was. When her dad was home, we would often talk about organ donors and the things that were necessary from a emergency rescue standpoint to make sure those organs were protected in order to be used to save the lives of others. Still, I never signed up. At some point along the way I got it in my head that if it was marked on my license that I was an organ donor and I wasnt in good shape at the scene of an accident they wouldnt work hard to keep me alive. I know how many ways can you spell STUPID. Danny had tried to explain to me that my thoughts were all wrong but it didnt matter how heated the discussion became, I wasnt going to believe him. Then my eyes started to open to just how shallow and wrong my way of thinking was. I interviewed the father of one of the two young men killed at the red light at Vicki Drive and U.S. 27. His son decided at a young age to be an organ donor, which made his father very happy. When I left that interview, I felt like I knew the young man and understood the decision he had made. Then a friend of mine went through a lung transplant, and another friend was put on the waiting list for a heart transplant. My stupidity of being afraid to become an organ donor was really starting to get the best of me. The day Briana signed on to be an organ donor, I too made that commitment. When we walked out of the Department of Motor Vehicles office, I not only was proud of my daughter, but I considered myself again a graduate of the school of hard knocks. And now we have the amazing story of young Miranda Ming. Miranda, 18, was involved in a single-vehicle accident on the evening of Aug. 5. Florida Highway Patrol notified the media that the young girl had been pronounced dead at Longwood Medical Center in Ft. Pierce where she was airlifted after the crash for organ donation. However, once she was moved to Miami for organ donation, doctors found brain activity. For a week, family and friends stood vigil over Miranda, hoping and praying for a miracle. Last week you may have read my rantings over social media, but it was via Facebook that Mirandas stepfather, Scott Pearce, kept many friends informed about Mirandas situation. Shortly after she succumbed to her injuries last weekend, someone posted that Mirandas heart had gone to a 13-year-old. I pray that the transplant is successful. I didnt know Miranda, but I will tell you that Ive been truly inspired by her and by what her loved ones have been through. I join so many others in praying that the family finds peace. According to United Network for Organ Sharing, there were 114,802 candidates on the waiting list for an organ donation as of 8:40 a.m. Tuesday 73,052 of them are active, meaning they are suitable for transplant at a given point in time. More than 11,400 transplants have taken place from January through May this year. I urge everyone to think about becoming an organ donor. Dont be ignorant like I was. Get the facts. Go to unos.org or donatelife.net and get informed. So many lives can be saved or changed. Do it in memory of Miranda. Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor of the News-Sun.

Looking back on his comb at missions,Price,then a staff sergeant in his early 20s,says,It scares me more now than when I went through it. Wed go through a flak field of anti-aircraft f ire for some 10-15 minutes, with hundreds,maybe thous ands of flak bursts. When we came out of it,German fighters would attack us b ut our own fighters were there trying to protect us. We d idnt have time to be afraid; we were too busy doing our job. In what seems like a miracle,Price says that out of 55 c rews in the bomb group, Happy Go Luckysurvived w ithout any casualties. One out of 55 thats pretty rare. He reports he is the last known living crew member f rom his B-17 and,coincidentally,the last of his own family of 10. Seems like I m always bringing up the rear,he quips. Sometimes you get a bett er picture of someone through their records rather t han an interview. For example,Price has been awarded a number of awards and decorations,including The Distinguished Flying Cross, a warded to any person who distinguished himself or herself by heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight. Price earned the award for serving as tail gunner on many high altitude heavy bombardment missions against the enemy over Continental Europe Sergeant Price repelled numerous hostile fighter attacks by his excellent marksmanship,thereby assuring the safety of the crew and aircraft. This courage,presence of mind and devotion to duty while engaged in aerial combat on all these occasions are in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States A ir Forces. He also has received Silver Wings,three Air Medals,two Presidential Citations and the Good Conduct Medal. One other certificate was also awarded to Price,perhaps with the same serious message as his official awards but in a jovial fashion and in the most proper Olde Englishlanguage possible. The event was his admission to the Brotherhoode of the Luckye Bastardes Club A gatherynge of G.I.s assembled in Grayte Brytagne. The certificate proclaims that Charles J. Price hath acheyved to eminence by reasone of having sallied forthe no lesse than 34 tymes ande also bye Goddes Grace having returned in saftie frome eache ande e verye sallye transporting for ande unto ye German Reich full manye a tonne of petards,mines,balles of fire ande othere greyvous burthens for ye discomfiting of ye manne Hitler ande all his eville companye unto ye Glorie of Godde . And theres an unfinished story about another medal a story with a twist of today. As Price tells it,On Sept. 18,1944,my squadron went on a mission to drop supplies to the Polish underground in Warsaw. But we had no idea of what was in our bomb bay at the time. We thought they were bombs. Then,this past April,I had a physical at the Sebring VA clinic from a female doctor with a foreign accent. I asked her where she was from and when she said Warsaw,I said,Well,I was kinda thereand I told her about the September 1944 mission. She said,My father and his brother picked up those supplies, and she thanked me for what I did. We were promised a medal from the Polish government,Price says,but we still havent received it.Honor FlightTheres yet another current event with roots in W orld War II. Price was one of a number of World War II v ets living in Florida who participated on Oct. 29, 2011,in a day-long mission as guests of the Honor Flight of West Central Florida,part ofa national volunteer operation designed to reach as many vets as possible. The purpose of each mission is to thank the vets for their service to their country with a tour of the war memorials in W ashington,D.C. Each vet is assigned a self-paid,volunteer Guardian(or escort) for the day,but Price still remains in contact with the woman who served as his Guardian. Looking back on that day, he says,They treated us better than weve ever been treated before. As Price searches through his World War II memorabilia,and as he tells his World War II stories,including his Honor Flight to Washington, you can see and hear and feel how proud he still is for what the military did for him (I enjoyed the service. The Air Force made a man out of me,he says.) But he downplays his own contributions. I did my duties as Im supposed to,he said, Continued from page 1A Courtesy photo Charles Price was highly decorated during his service as a B-17 tail gunner in World War II.

Munnings plans to join FSUs Relay for Life team as well as the SGA (student government association). The are really big about American Cancer Society at Florida State and I was really active in SGA in high school so Im thinking of joining it there,Munnings said. The Lake Placid chapter of ACS recently awarded Munnings with a scholarship to ensure a successful academic career. The $3,000 scholarship will be given to Munnings for the four years she is enrolled. Each year the money is split between tuition ($2,700) and books ($300). I found out I was a finalist in May after filling out the application. I knew about it last year,while I was in high school,but I missed the deadline. One of my teachers at the high school gave me the info ... Its not normally a long application,but it is if you have cancer,Munnings explained. With the acceptance of the scholarship,Munnings has agreed to volunteer 10 hours per week with the ACS, which she is happy to do. The upcoming school year brings new adventures and excitement for Munnings and her family and friends. I have a couple of friends that live there and go to FAMU (Florida A&M University) and I have one that goes to FSU. My family is excited for me. Ive spoken to my roommate over Facebook several times,so I am excited,Munnings said. Im not too worried about it (cancer). My next scan is in October,but everything right now is good. Munnings will be off to Tallahassee on Aug. 22 when she will move into her apartment-style dorm complete with mini kitchen and private bathroom. Munnings will attend classes on FSUs campus beginning Aug. 27. www.newssun.comNews-SunW ednesday, August 15, 2012Page 5A CENTRAL SECURITY; 3.639"; 2"; Black plus three; process, soliciting ad; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 9 9 PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 11.25"; 4"; Black plus three; process, 89895-STF CK p/u 8/1; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 4 4 5 5 5 5 MILLER'S CENTRAL AIR; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 8/15,22,29; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 4 4 5 5 7 7 By appointment only.

The public is invited to attend.Junior ROTC leaders to be honored SaturdayA VON PARK Once again as the schools of South Central Florida prepare for the coming year, the six Junior ROTC units, which are supported by the Air Force Association and the Military Officers Association of America,will be sponsoring a Welcome Back Luncheon on Saturday at the Avon Park Air Force Range dining facility. There will be at least one new face among the Junior R OTC instructors,namely retired Colonel Keith Charles Farmer,U.S. Air F orce,who will replace Major Nancy Koch-Castillo at Sebring High School. Guest speaker will be MOAA state president retired Lt. Col. Jim Connor, USAF,who served in Vietnam as a navigator in the RF-4C reconnaissance aircraft. Invitations are being issued for the Saturday luncheon and will start at noon; reservations for the event need to have been made no later than Thursday. Connor,president of Council of Chapters Military Officers Association of America,was born and raised on a ranch in western Nebraska,where he earned a masters degree in plant physiology and also earned a commission from the Reserve Officers Training Corps. He entered the Air Force where he flew as a navigat or in the RF-AC reconnaissance aircraft stationed at Tan Son Nhut AB Vietnam and later at Alconbury, England. It was there he m et his wife to be,who was teaching school at a Department of Defense school system at Molesworth Air Base,whic h is the World War II location depicted in the movie OClock High. His military career included teaching navigatio n and commanding a recruiting squadron in Ohio. After retirement and moving to Cape Coral in 1990,he worked for the University of Florida Research Center at Immokalee running the Entomology Laboratory. Connor has been involve d in the Calusa Chapter as president,secretary and many committee positions as well as the Florida Council of Chapters as southwest area vice president,secretary,and curren tly as Florida state president. Continued from page 2A COMMUNITYBRIEFS Continued from page 1A Munnings earns scholarship Festival will have several events running simultaneously. Saturday will be the kids race and registration for the adult race. The k idsrace will serve as the kickoff for the existing series through the Highlands County Family YMCA,the Rockn Heartland Youth Triathlon Series to benefit Julies Funds for Kids. This event will take place first thing in t he morning,followed by an awards ceremony and a planned barbecue and musical festival. Sunday will consist of the sprint distance triathlon and duathlon and the Olympic dist ance triathlon and duathlon. The sprint distances will be a quarter-mile swim (1 mile run duathlon),12 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. The O lympic distances will be 3/4 mile swim (1.5-mile run duathlon),a 24-mile bike and a 6.2 mile run. The event will be sanctioned by USA Triathlon,organizers said. It was clear from the start that chamber members and the Lake Placid chief of police were in favor of the project. Im very positive on this idea,said Councilor Steve Bastardi. It will come with n egative elements,but thats unavoidable. Police Chief Phil Williamson reported that the community in general is in favor. For the most part (the response) has been positive, he said. W illiamson added that the police department was up to the challenge of providing t raffic control and public safety on the two days of the event. Its doable,he said. Not everyone approves,however. There are philosophical concerns,for example,because the established Heartland T riathlon in Sebring operates as a not-forprofit,and a major goal of the Lake Placid tri is to make money. Councilor Debra Worley, f or one,felt some local non-profit should benefit. In response to earlier discussions,Andrews said,Paragon promises a portion of the proceeds will go to Julies Kids at the Sebring F amily YMCA and to the Mason Smoak Foundation in Lake Placid. Councilor Ray Royce wanted to be sure there was a clear line between the organizers of the race and the city. He worried about sett ing a precedent and insisted the city have no ownership in the project and carry no liabilit y. It was Patrick High,however,who had the s trongest objections. High and Cherie Starr are the couple most responsible for making the Heartland T riathlon the outstanding event it is. A passionate advocate for triathlon racing, High was involved with the Paragon project early on,but left over differences. Monday night,Highs expressed concerns involved Andrews and his lack of experience. Andrews,who organized the first Heartland T riathlon,had made mistakes,High said. He added that triathlon races are dangerous. Cyclists get hit by cars,inexperienced swimmers sometimes panic in the crowd. How much risk do you think is related to that?he asked the town council. Were Andrews and his company up to putting on such a complicated event,High was asked. Not today,he replied. A subtext of the discussion had to do with Andrewspast. Andrews was fired in October of 2008 as executive director of the Sebring Chamber of Commerce and arrested in November of 2008 on charges of grand theft and scheme to defraud. He and the court reached a plea agreement in January of 2010 that included restitution and 60 months of probation. Several individuals rose to defend Andrews,including Chris Doty,principal of Hill-Gustat Middle School,and Bert Cox,a plumbing contractor. I trust him,both men said. Each also addressed the overall benefits of triathlons especially their positive impact on children. Doty said the weekend childrens triathlon at the YMCA,which was directed by Andrews,brought in 103 participants,one from Germany.

C M Y K Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, August 15, 2012www.newssun.com in that manner, which is what happened with school social w orkers, he was so apologetic to those of us who were left to carry the full load. All of us know whatever fields that we have worked i n, that the last few years have been financially horrific. Wally with his experience in finance and money management has led the schools i na way that no one else could have through these difficult years. I do not believe that now is the time to experiment with a c hange of direction by an inexperience candidate. In summary, Wally Cox is an h onest, caring, kind person who has given 100 percent in his role as superintendent. H is experience as a finance director in the educational s etting prepared him as no other for the role of superintendent. This is not the time f or a change; please consider voting for Wally Cox to cont inue as school superintendent. Katherine Main SebringSupport for HutchinsonEditor: Again this morning I read t he same stated qualifications of Wally Cox, the current s chool board superintendent. He is described to be an excellent administrator, very s avvy with the budget, and has been forced to make many hard decisions to keep as much staff as budget allows. I also remember reading Highlands Today articles where Wally Cox made commentary to the effect, He wants one more term. He k nows the budget and he knows where the money was m oved around to. He also knows where the money n eeds to be returned to, if more funding is allocated ... He has further stated he wants one more term to complete all this and then let the n ext guy, take it to the next level ... This sounds just like one of those wonderful Washington, D.C.-based money programs. Give me the money now and we will let our children pay for it later. Wally Cox might be a good bookkeeper and can possibly work through a budget, but to raise the bar in classroom education, we need someone new. We cant wait for more years to take it to the next level. Being congratulatory and wanting to celebrate an A status school in Highlands County is a little hollow when we learn that this was an after thought. When it was discovered a calculation error was made and the need to lower the standards. It was later determined that Highlands County School District had one school out of 17 schools that rose to an A status school. Iam finding it difficult to comprehend Wally Coxs abilities to make corrective actions, after serving for more than 30 years within the district. We need to go to the next level this coming fall. My family and I have decided. We chose the candidate best prepared to take upon this task William F. Pep Hutchinson. Nancy Barlaug Sebring Editor: I was fortunate to recently attend a candidatesdebate in Avon Park. Having to be somewhat undecided on a few races: The school superintendent race is still unsettling to me. Once I realized that Mr. (Wally) Cox was not attending, nor was he considerate to send someone in his stead, I directed my attention to the remaining three candidates. I must admit I was pleased to hear remarkable comments from all three candidates, but the one candidate truly deserving my vote will be Mr. (William) Hutchinson. His policy on truancy, in todays school, is quite refreshing. As a former school nurse, this was a constant battle for local school administration. And, just as Mr. Hutchinson stated, he will have a zero tolerance for this type of activity. Maybe, just maybe he will be the bridge between the local community and the local classroom. Catherine Emma Sebring Editor: Letter to Mr. Hutchinson: I got your brochure in the mail and couldnt believe my eyes when you made the statement that you could do something innovative about the kids who were troublemakers. You also stated that you would do something proactive about the kids who dont show up for school. Way to go! When a kid is truant, he learns nothing except bad behavior. Something tells me that you can think outside of the box, which is something very much welcomed in this district. W elcome to the superintendents race. Im voting for you and so is my family. Nancy Pitcher Avon ParkSupport for OggEditor: When you remove the political side of the Supervisor of Elections vote, Penny Ogg is by far the best qualified for the office ... she has the experience ... hands on in the office she is seeking. I do not know her but she does not appear to be a politician and, therefore does not have that clout in her corner as the others do. We can see first hand in the White House, Washington, D.C. what a politician can do or not do without experience. Frank Parker Sebring Editor: Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg, eight years experience under Joe Campbell. If you liked Joe, you will be very happy with honest and dependable Penny Ogg. Bob Willard SebringSupport for PeckEditor: Republican Roberta Peck will be best superintendent for six reasons. (1) Peck has a very cost-effective multidimensional truancy plan as part of her platform. Avon Park High School has the highest Afro-Male number of drop-outs in the state of Florida, 18 percent. School dropouts will ultimately cost taxpayers profoundly in local crime, unwed children, and drug use. Sheriff (Susan) Benton has pointed to the lack of a unified procedure, which has been frustrating to officers. (Wally) Cox has yet to follow up in this critical area. I like Pecks plan because it recognizes the importance of character development and The Arts in teaching the whole child. Disruptive bullies of students and teachers will be dealt with. (2) Peck will be the best steward of taxpayer money because she will manage facilities like her own home. Example: She has already saved significant tax dollars by relentless e-mailing, letter writing, and follow-up regarding full-tilt, air conditioning 24-7-365 days a year. This has been a silent drain and flagrant taxpayer waste, few, even those in the system, have been aware of. There are other silent drains of taxpayer money to be found on her website: electpeck2012.com. (3) The incumbent is an accountant. Peck an award winning educator, trained in gifted education, who also has a successful business background. In addition, Peck has 33 years of direct experience in what procedures work, having always taught at our highest rated schools. Examples: Calling students before the school year begins engages kids and should be done at all schools, parent training in accessing grades invites parent involvement. Her solutions are costeffective. Excellence will be inthe refinements and restructuring she has the background to be aware of (not clueless of). (4) Peck will get the teachers and students off the treadmill of relentless testing. (5) Peck will not continue Coxs lobbying at state level for more money. The state doesnt have it and what it gets from national government is barrowed from China, putting the whole nation further in debt. Nor will Peck rely on local taxpayers to fund a top heavy system. She will cut at the top, starting with her own salary 25 percent, over $100,000. Peck is donating to our schools. (6) Peck will motion to restructure school board salaries, which have climbed to $373 for each hour of meeting. Thirty-six years ago these positions were voluntary. Each school board member is costing our county basically what a beginning teacher makes. Isay Elect Peck. Vivian Ashby Sebring Editor: I am for Roberta Peck for superintendent for the following reasons. Our county, city and especially our school system are facing a dire budget crisis. There simply are not sufficient revenues and funds to provide all the services that the citizens of Sebring and the students of our school system require. We need not only the award-winning educational background Peck will provide, but her multidimensional cost-conscious leadership. Roberta Peck has been looking for innovative ways to solve the budget crisis and has come to me (I work as a consultant in the electric power business). Her question was, if there are low cost, fast payback options to reduce the school electric bills, which absorb a tremendous percentage of the school budget. I told Roberta that I will work with her to find those low cost options that I know will reduce the school system electric bill drastically. For instance, Enerfit produces a patent pending electronic device to convert single zone commercial HVAC fixed speed fans into variable speed fans that has already been proved in dozens of installations (like the prestigious, private Baylor high school and Hamilton Place Mall) demonstrating 40-70 percent reduction in electric power demand and the electric bill at a cost that can provide payback in months to a short few years, while counter intuitively improving comfort. I like that Roberta Peck has made herself very savvy in various ways to save big money to hire more teachers. She asks the right questions and insists on details. The Enerfit is a retrofit technology that can be applied to any brand of HVAC system and also improve comfort by reducing relative humidity in the cooling mode (by slowing down fan and thus increasing the time air spends flowing over the cooling coils), greatly reducing drafts, reducing fan speed and thus reducing distracting noise, and has different control modes to also reduce room carbon dioxide (thus helping to keep students awake). Roberta Pecks vow of donating over $100,000 of her salary as superintendent speaks as a bond that she is serious about putting more teachers in the classroom who are excellent teachers. So vote during the upcoming primaries for Roberta Peck if you are looking for a leadership to solve our budget crisis and to get our school back on track providing our students a high quality education, I know I will. Dale Bradshaw Sebring CEO Electrivation Editor: It is clear that the people who say (Wally) Cox has been a good accountant simply dont know of the silent drain of hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars under Coxs supervision. The first major example over the last decade, has been the silent drain in unmanaged air conditioning, which ran at maximum cooling 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Yes, taxpayers provided super cold air conditioning even during summer months and holidays when schools sat empty. With all energy controls set at the county office, it was also status quo during the last decade under Cox, to see hundreds of outside strip lights on during daylight hours. The cost of this silent drain?; hundreds of thousands?, maybe millions, who knows. W ith lack of supervision this taxpayer money is now gone and unaccounted for. Unknown to most, it was a teacher, Roberta Peck, now a candidate for superintendent, who has been relentless in stopping that energy drain. But only the superintendent can stop the drain of educational money going to pay school board members a salary, (plus benefits) of $373 an hour for the approximate 80 hours they meet each year. I have been told the reason for this is that Cox is by nature pleasant, amiable and totally non-confrontational. Therefore, I assume it must have been so painful for him to cut teachers, that he had to accept that hefty $15,000 raise just to get through the ordeal. The superintendents job is to evaluate principals. The confrontational criticism required in evaluating principals was avoided by hiring Darrel Bryant (another big salary) to do that job. Remember, Cox is an accountant with no background in education whatsoever. Regarding Coxs Superintendent of the Year Award, I think if you are a member of that elite club of superintendents long enough (like Coxs 12 years), the award is eventually passed to you. How could that award have been given on merit with any awareness of the atrocious dropout rates for all Highlands high schools? Fourteen percent drop out of Sebring and Lake Placid High. Eighteen percent of kids drop out of Avon Park High School, the highest in the state. These uneducated dropouts under 12 years of Cox have been set up to be the biggest silent drain on taxpayers, which will last for decades during lifetimes of welfare services. My vote will be for eagleeyed educator Roberta Peck this Republican Primary. Asa Jackson Sebring Editor: www.electpeck2012.com is the site for Republican Roberta Pecks platform. I noticed when my letter in support of Roberta Peck for superintendent appeared, that the website with her platform was in error. The had been left out. Also, to clarify what I wrote about the excessive rate of drop-outs under (Wally) Cox, Sebring High School at 14 percent, has the most drop-outs coming from a bigger population. But Avon Park High School is at a whopping 18 percent, with the highest number of AfroAmerican males dropping out in the state. Other counties are producing far better results with the same demographics and declining budget. Sheriff Susan Benton has stated openly how frustrated her officers have been trying to operate under Coxs lack of a unified truancy plan. Sheriff Benton stated that truancy is the number one cause of local crime. Teachers cant teach to an empty seat. Truancy leads to uneducated kids dropping out. The sheriff has asked for help via a unified plan. Cox is notorious for lack of follow-up. These excessive numbers of dropouts in our county will end up costing taxpayers in increased crime, teen pregnancies, drug use, and a high number of ignorant disenfranchised life-long drains on the taxpayer. Roberta Pecks cost-effective truancy plan is multidimensional in addressing the whole child. When you visit Pecks website: www.electpeck2012 you will understand why Peck is the Best bar none for superintendent. It is important that registered Republicans turn out for this very important Republican Primary. Jaime Fowler Sebring Editor: I met a just retired teacher of Highlands County schools and found out shes running for our new superintendent of schools. She has large ideas to improve our county school scores, use a carrot and stick for truancy, and many other workable ideas including using 25 percent of her salary to hire more teachers all within our budget. How about a town hall to discuss issues and get ideas from the community? We cant be apethetic about this because our kids futures are depending on us to help. You can go to www.electpeck.com; see what she has planned and meet her outside the polls in August. I sincerely feel Roberta Peck can lead us to a much improved and enjoyable outcome for our students and teachers in our county. Flora J. Potts Sebring Dont elect Pigman Editor: I write today to express my sincere disappointment in Cary Pigman. The ridiculous campaign mail I received yesterday tells me much about his character. I attended a debate a few weeks ago where both he and his opponent promised to stick to the issues and avoid negative attacks. Mr Pigman has broken his word and undoubtedly has started a war of negativity in this election that will not serve to educate anyone on who will best serve the people. Shame on you sir, you told us you were different from other politicians. Instead its just the same old garbage from the same political consultants with a different candidates face on the flyer. If this is the best Sebring has to offer then we should probably look for someone from somewhere else. Steve and Nell Roberts SebringRooney is an embarrassmentEditor: John Boehner,Sen. John McCain and other GOPleaders spoke up last week for the State Departmentemployee targeted in Rep.Michele Bachmann and Rep. Tom Rooneys recent outburst of Islamophobia. Bachmanns letters claiming infiltration by theMuslim Brotherhoodinto the highest levels of our government were reminiscent of 1950s red baiting. It was embarrassing to see Florida Rep. Tom Rooneysign on to her corrosive fantasy. Bachmann, Rooney and three otherGOPmembers of Congress singled outHuma Abedin, a Muslim and top aide toSecretary of State Hillary Clinton. That, McCain said, was nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a dedicated American and a loyal public servant. Huma represents what is best about America: the daughter of immigrants, who has risen to the highest levels of our government on the basis of her substantial personal merit and her abiding commitment to the American ideals that she embraces so fully. I am proud to know Huma, and to call her my friend. McCains eloquence is a red, white and blue reminder that free speech carries responsibilities: When anyone, not least a member of Congress, launches specious and degrading attacks against fellow Americans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and ignorance of what they stand for, it defames the spirit of our nation, and we all grow poorer because of it. How can anyone vote to send Rep. Tom Rooney back to Washington to embarrass Highlands County on the national stage? Pam Holt SebringCommissioner: How would you vote?Editor: The issue of putting a Sunset in the Tourist Development Tax is a very hot one; some of our present commissioners think the tax should be forever, no matter what. And some think there should be a Sunset in it, forcing accountability to the voters. If it is doing what was promised, we keep it; if not, we toss it out. Just like we do with all elected officials. Thursday night, Aug. 2, at a forum, I asked the following question. If elected as county commissioner would you vote to put the issue of a Tourist Development Tax Sunset, every 10 years starting two years after approval, on the ballot and allow the citizens of Highlands County to decide Yes or No. As you know, some politicians find it very hard to answer a question Yes or No and feel a need to explain why their answer is not what they think the public wants. But in the end, the answers from the Republican candidates running in this primary election came up like this: District 1 Will Bennett Yes; Jim Brooks No. District 3 Jeri Canale Yes; Nadine Elliott-Tedstone Yes; and Ron Handley No. I hope this helps you answer the question, Who do I vote for?

C M Y K RUTH KOWALSKI Ruth Jean Kowalski,88, passed away peacefully,surrounded by loving family members at her side,leaving through the door to eternity, t obe with her Lord and Savior,Jesus Christ,Aug. 8, 2 012. She had lived for 31 years i n Sun N Lakes of Lake Placid with her loving husband,Hank. She was born in Sheriden,Pittsburgh,Pa., Oct. 10,1923. Her father w as Frank Conrad; mothers maiden name,Edna Bright. She graduated from Langely High School and her early interest was ballet. She w orked at it diligently until she became the PrimaBallerina of the Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra,with two performances at Carnegie Hall. In 1944, she met and married Iliff (Cliff) Grass. They had two children, Elizabeth (Betsy) and Robert Walter (Bobby). Cliff Grass was a musician with the Guy Lombardo Orchestra,and as with all band members,he traveled extensively. Jackson Heights,N.Y. seemed to be a logical place for the family to reside,and a good area for the children. The marriage lasted for 30 years. In 1976,Ruth met Hank Kowalski,falling in love and marrying. That marriage was still intact up to the exact date of Ruths passing; accumulating 36 years of marital bliss,love and never to be forgotten memories. Ruths only sibling,Betty Crabe,preceded her in death,several years ago. Ruth leaves behind,Bob (wife Peggy) and Betsy; and the following,niece,Linda Sauls and husband Lou; grand-niece,Julie DeLotte, husband Chris,children Kayla and Alyssa; nephew, Thomas (Tom),wife Rosemary; niece,Maureen Reich; grand-niece,Shelia Matragas,husband James and daughter Leah; Lenore Smith and children Casey and Randi; and others. The following are Ruths step-family members:Selena Kowalski (widow of Anthony Sr.) and children, Anthony Jr. and Regina; daughter,Karen Barrett,husband Ronald; niece,Irene Holzhauer,husband Edward and son Mathew; nephews, Ronald,William and Richard; and daughter-in-law Rose Kowalski,widow of Zigfried. Ruth made friends easily and kept some of them for life. Her sense of humor,a sense of empathy,a positive attitude and a ready smile, and being helpful whenever possible,was her formula for friendship. She leaves behind many friends who it is certain will miss her many attributes. An incomplete list of friends are:Ted Phalem Sr.,Marge Tousignant,Jane Nargelovic,Lyn and Jim Craft,Dr. Reed and Charlotte Bowman,Dr. Mark and Nancy Deyrup,Lorraine Hutchins,Luisa and Gary Garrett,Doris and Tony Zurita,Bernadine Krainak, Clarice Carter,Ann Weekly, Joan Morgan,Shirley Eckles,the Family Arrieta, the Molina Family,and Fred and Charlotte Lohrer. Ruth was an avid birdwatcher and participated in many official bird counts, keeping exact records of sightings. She was the very first editor of the Highlands County Audubon Society newsletter and held that position for many years. She particularly enjoyed her volunteer job at the Archbold Biological Station,happy to interact with school children who came to the facility on their field trips. She loved to read books with historical backgrounds and devouredbooks on science-fiction. Sewing was one of her specialties,having worked for the Singer Sewing Machine Co. for several years. Some of her creationswere displayed in the store front so that people could see what could be accomplished on a sewing machine. Moving from Beechhurst, N.Y.,to Florida was the right thing to do as the weather and clean sandy beaches beckoned,as Ruth loved to swim in the ocean as well as any available good pool. Ruth was a member of the St. James Catholic Church in Lake Placid and enjoyed attending Mass,singing in her lovely voice,all the hymns. Folks sitting nearby would always compliment her on that voice,saying how much they enjoyed listening.

At 7 p.m.,Mayor George Hensley,with the help of Back Porch Revival Band,is going to teach the crowd to square dance on North Ridgewood Drive. Ive been calling square dances since my youth in North Carolina,said the mayor. This is going to be a fun event and I encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the festivities. Whether you want to dance or just watch,I am sure this will be a fun night in downtown, much like evenings gone by when e veryone came to town. Several downtown restaurants will stay open for this event,and food vendors will also be set up around the Circle. Those attending are encouraged to dress in circa1912 attire,and the best costumed man and woman will be chosen by the applause of the crowd. If you own a boat or pontoon, Friday night,Oct. 19,will be the night for you. A boat parade will assemble at Lake Jacksons Veterans Beach at 7 p.m. You are encouraged to decorate your w atercraft with lights galore for a parade around Lake Jackson.

I am a rela tive newcomer to this area,but when I heard about the Centennia l Idecided to get involved,she said. These events dont happen bythemselves,but Sebring is a wonderful community of willing volunteers. The ideas and hard work of many such volunteers,no t to mention the important sponsorship dollars,will make the week one to remember. City officials and employees have been awesome to work with. Its going to be fun. Additional activities sponsored by private organizations will be held throughout the week. Centennial Celebration sponsorship information and entry forms for the bed race,parade and boat parade are available at City Hall or by contacting Haley at 471-5100. Continued from page 2A Centennial week to be full of activities News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY A two-car crash on State Road 17, at the Lake Lotela Road-Lake Angelo intersection snarled traffic early Monday afternoon. In the course of the collision, an SUV hit a power pole sideways, snapping live wires which fell into the street, on the SUV and in the swale. The live wires set grass smoldering. They also made rescue of three people from the two cars unusually difficult and dangerous, said one firefighter. The power had to be cut off before the smoking grass could be wet down or the two cars and debris cleared away. Traffic was limited to one lane of the road. The Florida Highway Patrol had not issued a press release about the accident at press time.

C M Y K LIVING C SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Chefs Corner Tim Spain FAMILY FEATURES Warm weather calls for lighter fare and the simplicity of outdoor entertaining. So,take your entertaining outdoors and chill out by serving up delicious small bites paired with crisp,refreshing white wines. Pour a glass of Chardonnay and fire up the grill for savory mini pizzas topped with fresh asparagu s and marinated artichoke hearts. Then,to really heat things up,serve a spicy side of marinated green beans with a Sauvignon Blanc. End on a sweet note with zesty mini lemon cheesecakes paired with Mirassou California Moscato as close as one can get to capturing summer in a bottle. Get started with these recipe and wine pairings from Californias Mirassou Winery. For more recipe ideastobrightenupyourtablevisit www.mirassou.com or www.facebook.com/MirassouWinery.Spicy Marinated Green Beans Pair with Mirassou California Sauvignon Blanc Prep time:15 minutes Cook time:15 minutes Marinate time:several hours Makes 12 servings 1 1/2 cups white wine vinegar 1 1/2 cups water 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns 2 to 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar 2 teaspoons kosher salt 1/2 tablespoon whole mustard seed 4 cloves garlic,sliced 2 large stalks fresh dill 3/4 pound fresh green beans,ends trimmed Place all ingredients except green beans in a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Place green beans in shallow dish and pour boiling marinade over top. Let cool,then place in plastic bag and refrigerate several hours or until ready to serve,turning bag occasionally.Mini Moscato CheesecakesPair with Mirassou California Moscato Prep time:20 minutes Cook time:20 to 25 minutes Makes 24 mini cheesecakes 1 cup finely ground gingersnap cookies 2 tablespoons butter,melted 12 ounces cream cheese,at room temperature 1/2 cup sugar 2 tablespoons flour 2 tablespoons Mirassou Moscato 1 teaspoon each:vanilla and lemon extract 1 egg,plus 1 egg yolk,beaten Store bought lemon curd, lemon zest, mint and fresh raspberries (if desired) Preheat oven to 350F,and spray a 24 cup mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Stir together ground gingersnaps and butter in a small bowl. Press about 1 1/2 teaspoons into each cup then press firmly into the bottom of each. Brush any crumbs off the top of the muffin pan and set aside. Beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth; beat in flour,Moscato and extracts on low speed. Add eggs and beat just until combined. Spoon equal amounts into each cup (they will be very full). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until filling feels set to the touch. Let cool completely,and then run a small thin knife around the edge of each to remove from pan. Place on a platter and top each with lemon curd,lemon zest,mint and fresh raspberries,as desired. Grilled Artichoke and Asparagus Mini PizzasPair with Mirassou California Chardonnay Prep time:20 minutes Cook time:15 minutes Makes 4 servings 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil,divided 1 cup 2-inch pieces fresh asparagus,halved lengthwise 1/2 cup pitted mixed olives,cut into wedges 1/4 cup roasted red peppers,cut into thin strips 2 tablespoons chopped roasted garlic 1 6-ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1 14to 16-ounce ball of pizza dough 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup grated dry jack cheese (plus additional for topping) Toasted walnuts (optional topping) Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and cook for 1 minute. Stir in olives,peppers,garlic and artichoke hearts; cook for a few minutes more to heat through. Season with salt and pepper; set aside and keep warm. Divide pizza dough into two equal pieces. Roll each out into an 8 x 10inch oval on a lightly floured board,and brush both sides with remaining olive oil. Grill over medium-high heat for about 1 minute on each side or until puffed and lightly charred. Reduce heat to low and top with cheeses; cook for 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted, rotating pizzas once or twice to help cook evenly. Top with vegetable mixture and additional dry jack and walnuts,if desired. Warm-Weather WineChoice:WhiteorRed? White wines are perfectly refreshing for warm-weather fare,but what about options for red wine lovers? David Mirassou,wine expert and sixth generation of Americas oldest winemaking family,recommends Pinot Noir,a light and versatile red wine that can pair just as nicely with lighter dishes and small bites as many white wines. After all,Mirassou says,just because the weather changes doesnt mean your preference for red wine has to change with it. Have you ever heard of a maranth or quinoa? They are part of the super grains and c ontain protein as well as amino acids. I love to eat these kinds of foods and they can be prepared in a wide variety of recipes. I like to u se them as stuffing when serving game hens or maybe e ven make a cold composed salad,to which I might and some curry,pecans and r aisins. I first started working with a maranth in Montana,where we served it on our lunch buffet at the ranch I worked a t in Big Sky. I quickly developed a liking to this grain. It is very easy to cook a nd has a wonderful texture. I suggest you try the recipe I have included with either quinoa or amaranth and you will find it has a lot of flavor and is good for you,too. I also suggest that you c ook yourself a nice piece of salmon and serve the fish on top of your super grain stir fry. If you take some of your amaranth seed and get it to germinate,it will produce a h ealth plant that when in bloom will have an awesome v iolet-colored bloom. If you can get it to go to seed you will have more amaranth than you know what to do with. Cheers,Chef.Amaranth or Quinoa Stir-Fry2 cups cooked amaranth o r quinoa 2 Tbsp. oil 1 onion,chopped 1 carrot,sliced 1 celery stalk,sliced 1 cup mushrooms,sliced 3 cloves garlic,chopped fine 1/2 cup almonds,chopped 1/4 cup sunflower seeds 2 Tbsp. soy sauce 1 Tbsp. miso paste Saut veggies,garlic, almonds and seeds in the oil until vegetables are tender crisp. Add soy sauce,seasonings and amaranth or quinoa. Mix well until warmed through. Tim Spain is System Executive Chef with Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and Morrison Healthcare Food Service.

Super grains MCT Amaranth is really a seed but is often used as a grain. It can be used whole, popped like corn, flaked or ground as flour. Its glutenfree and high in protein, fiber, calcium and iron.

C M Y K Dear Abby: My grandfather recently went to jail for having child pornography on his laptop. The lawyers and everyone else say he molested me and my sister. I almost had to testify. Im only 13 and have talked with people,but they dont get it. I dont want to talk to a therapist or anything,but my mom and aunt think I should. Should I? I feel really sad right now. I first learned about this two years ago, b ut it still hurts. I kind of feel uncomfortable talking about it to people other than my best friends. I write sad poetry to express my feelings and it helps some. I dont know what to do. Its like Im stuck in a rut. What should I be feeling? Do I need to talk to someone? Should I open up more? Unsure of My Feelings Dear Unsure: If your grandfather is in jail,and the lawyers and everyone elsesay he molested you and your sister,then he probably did. The two of you may not have understood what was happening because he led you to believe what he was doing w as normal behavior. (This is standard operating procedure for a molester.) P art of the reason for your sadness may be that your trust was violated. Talking to a therapist is not a punishment. Its actually a privilege,and I hope that you and your sister will take advantage of it. A therapist can give you more insight than your friends can give you. Y our mom and your aunt have your best interests at heart,so please listen to them. A therapist can help you open up more,and your sadness will dissipate. Dear Abby: I love my w ife very much,but over the years we have drifted apart. At one time we considered separating,but we went to a marriage counselor and worked most things out. My wife is the only woman in the world for me, but my feelings are at the bottom of her priorities. I give her nightly foot massages and tell her how much she means to me. She never returns any pleasures. She has told me that sex is not enjoyable for her and she does it only to please me. I love her dearly,however the romance is gone. Is it possible to rekindle the long-lost fire? Lonely,Unimportant Husband in North Carolina Dear Lonely: I hate to appear negative,but the way you have described your marriage,I doubt it. I also have to question why you think a woman who is so withholding is the only woman in the world for you. You have described what she is getting from you,but what are you receiving in return besides passive rejection? Dear Abby: I am torn between two decisions. I a m a 40-year-old teacher,but I have always wanted to be in law enforcement. I didnt pursue my dream because my fiancee would not marry me if I went into police work. I have done well over the years,but my heart will not let go of being in law enforcement. My wife gives me the you have a good job and you need to save for your kidsspeech. I feel if I dont at least try to pursue my dream it will always bug me. Should I suck it up,do my time and be unfulfilled for the next 10 years? I feel like the old you can be whatever you want to be speech is an injustice to children if you as a parent cant live up to this rule. What do you think about all this? Living a Lie in P ennsylvania Dear Living a Lie: I think that at age 40 you should be allowed to do what you want with your life. However,if you decide to pursue police work,you should make certain your family will be well-provided-for in case something happens to you in your high-risk new career.

No they arent theneighbors of the Sopranos. The Solanaceae family is more commonlyknown as the nightshade family. Its name has lots of folks assuming that these foods are grown in thedark of night with fairies waving their magical wands over themremoving any need for the sun. What? Not everyone thinks that? Lol The truth is,nobody really knows why the word nightshade has comeinto the equation at all. The name comes from the Latin Solanumfor the nightshade plant,probably because some of the flowers on theseplants resemble the rays of the sun. Regardless of where the name comes from,a lot of agricultural cropsbelong to this family, inacluding potatoes,hot peppers,tomatoes andtobacco. Now,nightshade plants can be nasty little troublemakers of the foodworld. Thats because they are rich in alkaloids some of them areeven toxic to animals and humans. Did you know that once upon a time eggplants and tomatoes were onlyused as ornamental objects because they were thought to be poisonous?Mmm! Pass the moussaka not! So what problems are caused by these nightshade foods? Nightshades have negative effects on our joint function, our digestion(those pesky lectins again) and our nervemuscle function. You might think youre eating a very healthy diet with lots of salads(topped with green peppers and tomatoes) and chicken (stir fried withbell peppers and a shot of hot sauce for flavor) only to wonder whyyoure in pain so much of the time. If you suffer from arthritis,gout or osteoarthritis,try cutting outplants from the nightshade family for a month,and you may notice apretty significant change in the way you feel. This also applies toanyone suffering from nerve-muscle related problems. Actually,why dont you all do that? Cut out potatoes, tomatoes,peppers,and other foods in the nightshade family that you can findfrom a little bit of research into the Solanaceae family. Do it for amonth then take note of how you feel. Then go whole hog and stuffyourself with nightshades again for comparison sakes. Youll knowpretty soon if you have a sensitivity to these foods or not. Oh by the way,you know those little green spots and sprouted spots onpotatoes? Those are indicators of alkaloid content in those spuds, soeither cut out the bad parts or dont eat em. So now you have the scoop on nightshades. Any questions? Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of 'Body Clutter' and the Saving Dinner series.

Shining the light on nightshades Dinner Diva Leanne Ely Girl abused by grandfather is reluctant to open up Dear Abby WASHINGTON (AP) For the first time in two decades,a woman has been tapped to moderate a presidential debate. CNNs Candy Crowley will moderate one of three October debates between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney,the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Monday. Jim Lehrer of PBS and Bob Schieffer of CBS News will moderate the other two debates. Lehrer will question the candidates during the first debate on Oct. 3 at the University of Denver, focused on domestic topics. Crowleys Oct. 16 debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead,N.Y.,will use a town hall format,allowing undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization to directly question the candidates. Foreign and domestic policy questions will both be fair game. Another female journalist,Martha Raddatz of ABC News,will moderate an Oct. 11 debate at Centre College in Danville,Ky.,between Vice President Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan. The debate season will draw to a close on Oct. 22 with a foreign policy-focused debate moderated by Schieffer at Lynn University in Boca Raton. All the debates are scheduled for 9 p.m. EST. The commission said it will also launch an Internetbased initiative to educate voters before the debates about the issues that are likely to come up. Were pleased with the selection of the moderators by the debate commission,and look forward to vigorous and substantive debates this fall,said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina. Pointing out that the first debate will take place less than 10 miles from the sites of both the Aurora, Colo.,shootings last month and the 1999 Columbine attacks,the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence urged Lehrer on Monday to ask Romney and Obama during the debate for their plans to prevent gun deaths. When Crowley takes the stage in Hempstead,it will be the first time a woman has moderated a presidential debate since Carole Simpson of ABC News, who refereed a 1992 debate between President George Bush,Bill Clinton and Ross Perot. Crowleys selection came after three teenage girls from Montclair,N.J.,organized an online petition drive to persuade the commission to pick a woman. More than 122,000 signatures were on the petition when the moderators were announced Monday. Women and men will never be truly equal in our CNNs Crowley to moderate Oct. presidential debate Page 2CNews-SunlW ednesday, August 15, 2012www.newssun.com

The ninth annual edition of the nations largest show dedicated to Light Sport Aircraft will be held on Jan. 17-20 at Sebring Regional Airport and hopes to set records for traffic and attendance. FAA officials logged 1,256 air operations in 2012, including 200 in the first hour a rate of arrivals and departures that rivaled the nations busiest airports and made Sebring Regional Airport the busiest airport in Florida. This event,with its focus on LSA and the Sport Pilot Certificate,continues to grow in importance and in attendance with a great group of exhibitors/sponsors,media and concessionaires. These associates travel to Sebring from nearly 40 states and several foreign countries. Attendees come to Sebring to see,try,fly and, in some cases,buy a new plane and all the necessary gear for both plane and pilot. Exhibitors include dealers, manufacturers and engineers of aircraft,avionics,electronics and pilot supplies in addition to training systems, aircraft insurance and financial institutions. LSA include fixed-wing airplanes, trikes,powered parachutes, gliders and gyroplanes as well as floatplanes and amphibians. The U.S. Sport Aviation Expo has outside and inside displays in addition to food concessionaires. Special events including an e xhibitor/sponsor reception, aircraft auction,food and wine tastings,seaplane base and a volunteer recognition dinner are scheduled for the Expo. Look for more events to be announced. Sebring Regional Airport and Commerce Park are easily accessible to the vast state and federal highway network and is within 90 miles of six international airports,including Tampa and Orlando. The heart of Central Florida,the 2,000-acre park is conveniently situated within a 150mile radius of 85 percent of the states population. Sebring has been named in the State Aviation System Plan as the growth airport for South Central Florida. Already home to Sebring International Raceway,a premier sports car racing facility,the park is uniquely positioned to accelerate business. Even their short list of benefits,incentives and advantages is long on opportunity when it comes to leasing hangar space at Sebring Regional Airport. For starters,they have a brand new fuel farm and a new, state-of-the-art self-serve island,providing 100LL,JetA,and Mo-gas without ethanol. Runway 14-32 has been resurfaced and Runway 18-36 is in the process of being resurfaced. They are also going to lengthen the runaway to 700 feet.

C M Y K By FRAZIER MOORE AP Television WriterNEW YORK Viewers were incensed Sunday night when NBC cut away from the Olympicsconclusion to air a sitcom featuring a monkey. During 16 days from London,the sprawl of Olympics coverage was seemingly indomitable,running roughshod through the NBC schedule. Yet Sundays package of highlights from the closing ceremony deferred meekly to the preview of a new NBC comedy, Animal Practice,which then was followed by a halfhour of local news. When taped Olympics coverage came to a grinding halt at 11 p.m. Eastern time, viewers were advised that the festivities would resume in one hour. Accordingly,at midnight Ryan Seacrest greeted viewers who had chosen to stick it out. Welcome to the London closing party,he chirped. Now its time for the big finale. That would be a medley pounded out by The Who. Songs included such favorites as Baba ORiley and My Generation,but not,as put-upon viewers might have noted,Wont Get Fooled Again:After all the build-up,The Who were on hand for just eight minutes. Olympics host Bob Costas then delivered a rhapsodic postscript before declaring a wrap for NBCs Olympics coverage at 12:35 a.m. For this,viewers had waited an extra hour on a work night. And by then,many of them might have been wondering why the ceremony package couldnt have aired intact, ending conveniently at 11:08 p.m. and only slightly delaying NBCs monkey business. Agitated viewers with a long memory were likening Sundays Who-Airs-When fiasco to NBCs Heidi moment nearly four decades earlier. That was the faceoff between the Oakland Raiders and the New York Jets on Nov. 17,1968,when Oakland scored two touchdowns in the games final minute to overwhelm New Yorks 32-29 lead. But viewers in the East didnt see the impossible comeback,because NBC broke away from the game with the Jets still ahead to air its TV film Heidiat the scheduled 7 p.m. start time. There was no Twitter then, but there was Sunday night and it lit up with complaints. No better way to turn people off a new show than to preempt the who & other rock legends for it,tweeted Nate Barlow. And Nina L. Diamond voiced her ire in even stronger terms:I think NBC has managed to become even less popular than Congress. www.newssun.comNews-SunW ednesday, August 15, 2012Page 5C E.O. KOCH CONSTRUCTION CO.; 5.542"; 4"; Black; com; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 4 4 5 5 8 8 By PAUL HAVEN Associated PressLONDON And now,on t o Rio! London brought the curtain down on a hugely entertaining Olympics with a sensational rock n roll nostalg ia tour of a closing ceremony that thrilled the London night with top-of-the-chart classics,supermodels and psychedelic mayhem. After a glorious two weeks of never-to-be-forgotten moments that left Britain e xhausted,exhilarated and deeply proud,organizers handed the baton to 2016 h ost Brazil,which must now take up the Herculean task o fmatching them. Judging by the swaying samba of Marisa Monte and t he sexy baritone of Seu Jorge in Brazils eightm inute musical and visual postcard for the 2016 games, they look to be off to a footstomping start. But Sunday was all about B ritain. The three-hour extravag anza offered a sensory blast including rock nroll rickshaws,dustbin percussioni sts,an exploding yellow car and a marching band in red t unics and bearskin hats. The Spice Girls staged a show-stopping reunion,and M onty Pythons Eric Idle sauntered through Always Look on the Bright Side of Life accompanied by Roman centurions,Scottish b agpipers and a human cannonball. It all made for a madcap mashup that had 80,000 fans at Olympic Stadium stompi ng,cheering and singing along. Organizers estimated 3 00 million or more were watching around the world. What a way to end a games far more successful than many Londoners expected. Early security glitches were conquered with t he help of the military,road traffic was manageable and the wettest early summer on record gave way to mostly sunny skies. More import antly,British athletes overachieved. It all came with a price tag of $14 billion three times the original estimate. But nobody wanted to spoil the fun with such mundane concerns,at least not on this night. We lit the flame,and we lit up the world,said London organizing committee chief Sebastian Coe. When our time came, Britain,we did it right. International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge declared the Olympics over with praise for the athletes. Through your commitment to fair play,your respect for opponents,and your grace in defeat as well as in victory,you have earned the right to be called Olympians,he said,adding: These were happy and glorious games. But the night was about splash more than speeches. Festive and fast-moving, the ceremony opened with pop bands Madness,Pet Shop Boys and One Direction,a shout-out to W inston Churchill and a tribute to the Union Jack the Olympic Stadium floor arranged to resemble the British flag. Monochrome recreations of London landmarks were covered in newsprint,from Big Bens clock tower and Tower Bridge to the London Eye ferris wheel and the chubby high-rise known as the Gherkin. Street percussion group Stomp built the noise into a frenzy,and dancers brandished brooms,in a nod to the spontaneous popular movement to clean up London after riots shook neighborhoods not far from Olympic Stadium just a year ago. Liam Gallagher performed Wonderwall,a 1990s hit by his former band,Oasis, Muse rocked the house with the hard-edged Olympic anthem Survival,and Queen guitarist Brian May was joined by singer Jessie J for a crowd-pleasing We Will Rock You. The headline performers were each paid a pound,a little more than $1.50. The night ended with the extinguishing of the multipetaled Olympic cauldron and a supercharged rendition of My Generationand other classics by The Who that had the crowd dancing in the aisles. Confetti rained down,and fireworks lit up t he sky. Prince Williams wife, Kate,and Prince Harry took seats next to Rogge. They sang along to God Save the Queen.There was no sign of the queen herself,who made a memorable mock parachute entrance at the July 27 opening ceremony. Following Olympic tradition,the 10,800 athletes of the London Games marched in as one rather than with their nations,symbolizing the harmony and friendship inspired by the games. As the crowd cheered their heroes and flashbulbs rippled through the stadium,the Olympians cheered back, some carrying national flags, others snapping photographs with smartphones and cameras. They held hands, embraced and carried each other on their shoulders, finally forming a human mosh pit on the field. The ceremony had something for everyone,from tween girls to 1960s hippies. The face of John Lennon appeared on the stadium floor,assembled by 101 fragments of sculpture,and just as quickly gave way to George Michael,Fatboy Slim and Annie Lennox. Britons,who had fretted for weeks that the games would become a fiasco,were buoyed by their biggest medal haul since 1908 29 golds and 65 medals in all. The United States edged China in both the gold medal and total medal standings, eclipsing its best performance at an Olympics on foreign soil after the Dream Team narrowly held off Spain in basketball for the countrys 46th gold. While the games may ha ve lacked some of the grandeur of the Beijing Olympics in 2008,there were more than a few unforgettable moments. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt became an Olympic legend by repeating as champion in both the 100-meter and 200-meter sprints. Michael Phelps ended his long career as the most dec orated Olympian in history. British distance runner Mo Farah became a national treasure by sweeping the 5,000and 10,000-meter races,and favorite daughter Jessica Ennis became a glo bal phenomenon with her victory in the heptathlon. Female athletes took center stage in a way they never had before. American gymnast Gabby Douglas soared to gold and the U.S. soccer team made a dramatic marc h to the championship. Packed houses turned out to watch the new event of womens boxing. And women compe ted for Saudi Arabia,Qatar and Brunei for the first tim e. And then there was Oscar Pistorius,the doubleamputee from South Africa running on carbon-fiber blades,who didnt win a medal but nonetheless left a champion. And sprinter Manteo Mitchell,who com pleted his leg of the 4x400 relay semifinal on a broken leg,allowing his team to qualify and win silver. Britons seemed exhauste d and exhilarated after two glorious weeks in the worlds spotlight,just months after the country ce lebrated the queens 60th year on the throne with a magnificent pageant and street parties. Some at Olympic Park acknowledged happy surprise that not much had gon e wrong,and so much had gone right. I was a bit worried we wouldnt be able to live up to it,said Phil Akrill of Chichester. But walking around here its just unbelievable. Even non-Brits were proud of their adopted hom eland. Its just been a really nice thing to see,said Anj a Ekelof,a Swede who now lives in Scotland. The whole country has come together. OLYMPICS And now ... onto Rio in 2016! London puts out Olympic flame MCT The Spice Girls (above) and George Michael took to the stage to help London close out the 2012 Summer Olympics on Sunday.

Elvis Presley left behind hit songs, epic performances,some soso movies and an image as a handsome,rebellious,talente d and sometimes-troubled artist that remains indelibly marked in Americas pop culture psyche 35 years after his death. Presley also left behind m emories held closely and deeply by the songwriters a nd musicians who not only helped him work his magic in the studio and onstage, b ut also worked hard to keep his music alive today. Many d escribed him as intelligent, humble and generous. DJ Fontana,Elvislongtime drummer,met Presley during the popular Louisiana Hayrideshows in the early 1950s. Fontana, w ho still tours and plays Elvis songs,said Presley rarely rehearsed and always a ppeared cool. He never did prepare for n othing,early on,Fontana said. Every time he came onstage he was ready. He n ever did get really nervous, you know. Fontana,studio musician B obby Wood and others are playing a 35th-anniversary t ribute concert in Memphis on Thursday,commemorating the day Presley died in 1977 at 42. The event is part of Elvis Week,the annual c elebration of all things Elvis that includes the candlelight vigil at his mansion, Graceland,on the eve of the death anniversary. Elvis Week will draw about 75,000 fans. Ex-wife Priscilla Presley and daughter Lisa Marie Presley are e xpected to attend the concert,which will include live musicians playing along with video footage of Elvis singing. Also in attendance will be songwriter Mike Stoller,who teamed with the late Jerry Leiber to form a songwriting duo that today is enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Stoller appeared at a songwriters forum at Graceland on Saturday. Leiber and Stoller wrote an impressive roster of pop, country,R&B and rock n roll classics,including Elvis recordings Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock,Dont and Loving You. Stoller recalls being impressed with Presleys hard work and his manners. When they met,Stoller had to tell Elvis to refer to the songwriters who were only two years older as Jerry and Mike,not sir. During the recording of Jailhouse Rock,Stoller was sure they had nailed it on the ninth take. He was already up to take 25,26,and he kept saying,I think I can do it better,Stoller said. Finally he said,Wheres that one that you liked?We went back and played it and he said,Yeah,thats it,thats cool. When Big Mama Thornton first released Hound Dog in 1953,it was a womans song about a low-class man who was cryinall the time. Her recording was a hit in black communities but hardly known among whites, Stoller said. When Presley sang it,it changed. On the record and in his gyrating performances,the young Elvis portrayed a masculine sexuality that helped turn Hound Dogfrom a w omans song into a mans. He also brought the song to a worldwide audience. It still had the same attitude,Stoller said. I think thats what Elvis liked,that kind of snarly attitude. The way Stoller found out that Hound Dogwas a hit is quite remarkable. Stoller was returning from a threemonth stay in Europe on the ocean liner Andrea Doria when it collided with the Stockholm and sank near Nantucket,Mass.,on July 25,1956. About 50 people died and more than 1,600 were rescued. Stoller was picked up by a freighter that brought rescued passengers to New Y ork. Leiber met Stoller at the dock. When I came in and went down the gangplank onto solid ground,he was there at the dock running up and the first thing he said to me was, Mike,we got a smash hit, Stoller said. I said,Youre kidding.He said,Hound Dog.I said,Big Mama Thornton? He said,No,some white kid named Elvis Presley. Presleys career eventually slowed down,and he lost popularity to acts like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. But a 1968 television musical show,referred to as the Comeback Special, showed that Elvis had returned as a revitalized, handsome,vocally strong performer. He then went back to Memphis,teaming up with The Memphis Boys,an accomplished and highly respected band at American Sound Studios,on the albums From Elvis in Memphisand Elvis:Back in Memphis.The Memphis Boys backed Presley on the hits In the Ghettoand Suspicious Minds. Musicians remember Elvis talent, character King of Rock n Roll died 35 years ago this week MCT Elvis Presley died Aug. 16, 1977. His grave at Graceland in Memphis, Tenn., has become a shrine and a tourist attraction.

C M Y K By JAMES WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunSEBRING For the S ebring Blue Streaks, this years football schedule is the same as last year. The same teams in the s ame order, the only difference being where the games w illbe played. If it was an away game last s eason, this time around, its at home which will save a l ot of driving, given that the farthest away games are at Winter Haven and Kathleen in Lakeland. And while the travel will see a turnaround, so too is second-year coach LaVaar Scott hoping to see the teamsfortunes. First year is gone, he said. But its like it never stops. Once the season is over you start working on the next season. Even though the record may not indicate it, I think a lot of things got accomplished last year and the kids know what to expect now. Defensively, Sebring was solid against some highoctane teams and gave up just under 18 points a game last year. But it was on offense that the Streaks had itsproblems. Take away the 45 points put up against Avon Park, Sebring averaged a little over nine points per game. Offense is where we definitely need a big improvement up front and being more consistent without making mistakes, Scott said. Scott pointed out that being unable to score, or turning the ball over, was the difference in being a 4-6 team instead of a 7-3 team. There were three games, in particular, that Scott referred to as showcasing that difference. Against Frostproof, the team lost five fumbles inside Frostproofs 20-yard line in a 20-12 loss. At highly-ranked American Heritage, the Streaks had the ball eight times inside the 2-yard line and could not score in a 13-3 loss. The third game was against Bartow, where they had the ball at the YellowJackets 20 while trailing 8-6 with less than a minute and a half left in the game. Afield goal would have won the game instead an interception ended the threat. I want to see less mental mistakes this year, Scott said. We beat ourselves in three games. Sebrings schedule consists of four teams that are currently ranked in the top 100 in the state, whereas Sebring is currently ranked 182. I put our schedule up against anybodys out there. stated Scott. Every team we play has at least two kids with Division I offers, and here we come with normal high school football players that want to be good. I think the kids are looking forward to it, I know I am looking forward to it.

For even from a distance the two new murals by Sebring graduate John Ritter are eye-catching. And when fans get the chance to gander up close at the paintings along the outer walls below the grandstand, they will both a fantastic new look and a long-held wish finally come to pass. One features an oversized ball and glove against a dark brown backdrop, while the other is somewhat a timeline of Sebring baseball. I was always interested in art as a hobby, but was more into sports through high school, the graduate said. I took a few art classes at Sebring and in junior college, and thats when I really picked up painting. I was asked randomly to do a few murals about seven years ago and they didnt stink, so I just kept up with it. And while he credits his teachers with some of his progress, Ritter has also done a lot of self teaching. Like anything, to be any good, you have to put your own time in, he said. I think a lot of what Ive done SPORTS D SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, August 15, 2012 NASCAR This Week3D Courtesy photo Sebrings 14-year old bowling sensation, David Daniels, was a featured guest on Ed Lynchs Sports Talk show on Saturday, Aug. 11.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The inaugural season of Rockn Heartland Youth Triathlon Series came to a close Sunday where the focus wasnt just on the racers, one of whom from as far away as Europe. The two-race series (slated to grow to four next year) is presented by The Jarrett Family Foundation and Thakkar Family Foundation to benefit Julies Funds for Kids, a Highlands Family YMCAscholarship program. Rockn Heartland was the perfect way for the YMCAto promote Julies Funds, RHYTS Race Director Daniel Andrews said after the 103 competitors and their families packed up their racing gear and drove home, noting the 20-percent increase in registration. Triathlon is about getting out and doing something. At this level, even though we had strong local athletes and a regionally-ranked juni or racer from Germany competing, the whole point of triathlon is getting our children, the communitys children, outside and doing something. We just happen be focused on swimming, cycling and running. Through Julies Funds for Kids, the YMCAis able to subsidize the entry costs for all of its sports teams, including gymnastics and dance, so Rock N Tri gets international flair See ROCKN, Page 5D Courtesy photo The Blue Streaks are focusing on tightening up an offense that left too many opportunities on the field last season.

C M Y K Associated PressJACKSONVILLE For two years now, Terrance Knighton and Tyson Alualu have been fixtures at defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Knighton has started all but three games the last three years, missing a trio of games a year ago due to an ankle injury. Alualu has answered the call for 32 consecutive games the past two seasons since the Jaguars made him their No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft. But things could be different this year. Both incumbents are being pushed by a pair of relative unknowns. C.J. Mosley has moved ahead of Knighton on the depth chart and started last Fridays preseason game against the New York Giants. DAnthony Smith, who is pushing Alualu, was also a starter, but Alualu was held out by the coaching staff as a precautionary measure. Both Knighton and Alualu had offseason surgeries. Alualus surgery was in January and was done to clean up some issues with his knee that hampered his play a year ago. He had the benefit of extra months to rehab and was nearly 100 percent by the time training camp opened. Knighton underwent eye surgery in April following a melee at a local nightclub in which he was struck in the eye with a bottle. Last week the surgeon who performed the operation said it was miraculous that Knighton didnt lose his sight in the eye. With Knighton forced to miss all of the offseason drills, he was behind others when training camp opened. Mosley was quick to take advantage of the opening and has performed well thus far. Winning a starting spot on the Dline was not a priority coming into camp, he said. I just came in here thinking I would give it everything I had, said Mosley. Whats happening at the position, thats up to the coaches to decide. My job is to go out there and play hard every play of every series. Mosley appeared in 15 games with the Jaguars a year ago with a career-high three starts. The Jaguars apparently liked what they saw in the former sixthround pick of the Minnesota Vikings, rewarding him with a three-year, $7.5 million deal. Thats given Mosley added incentive to perform well. Sure thats an inspiration for me to prove that Im worthy of the deal, he said. But like anything Ive got to keep working hard. Nothing is etched in stone. My teammate T. Knighton is working very hard. I love him. We push each other every day. Mosley has shed some weight, which he feels will benefit his overall game. Ayear ago he was in the 312-315 range but hes dropped nearly 10 pounds and will play at 305-307 this season. Coach (Joe) Cullen says you should drop five pounds every year youre in the league, Mosley said. I like it. I feel better. Most of my weight is in my stomach or my legs. I feel more flexible and a little more bouncy. When Knighton was out with an ankle injury for three games a year ago, Mosley stepped in and performed well. His stock has been on the rise since that time, Cullen said. When Terrance went down, C.J. had to start a few games and played great technique, Cullen said. He played really well on the run game and brought us a little bit on the rush. It was a career year. Knighton knows hes in for a fight to reclaim his starting spot. For now, he admits Mosley deserves to be the starter. He (C.J.) did the right things in the offseason and the OTAs to be the starter. Ive got to earn it back. In theory, both could be called starters as both will play about equal snaps. The same holds true for the other battle between Alualu and Smith. Smiths problem in the past has been his ability to stay healthy. He missed his rookie season in 2010 with an Achilles injury and followed that with a season-ending toe injury last year. Both times he was placed on injured reserve before the season started. Im playing with a sense of eagerness, Smith said. Ive been waiting a long time for this. Cullen likes what hes seen in Smith so far. DAnthony was snake-bitten but thats behind him, the Jaguars defensive line coach said. Theres great competition at that position but he has the skills and the qualities. Hes really playing well to this point. NOTES: The news isnt gettin g better regarding the Jaguars injury situation. Backup C/G John Estes suffered a knee injury in the Giants game on Friday and he may need surgery. Hes out for the rest of the preseason for sure and it could be season-ending. CB Derek Coxhurt hurt a hamstring and will likely miss the next two preseason games. The only good news coming on the injury front was that starting G Will Rackley was progressing faster than expected and may by back by the third preseason game at Baltimore on August 23 ... Less than a week after signing his contract and reporting to training camp, firstround draft pick Justin Blackmon was elevated to the first team offense ... Special teams coordinator John Bonamego had praise for P Brian Anger, who was credited with three 50-yard punts, including a 58yarder that Bonamego said had a hang time of 5.4 seconds.

VH1 pulled from its schedule the reality series Ev and Ocho, starring newlyweds Johnson formerly known as Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada. The network announced the move Monday, citing the seriousness of the allegations against Johnson, and said it had no plans to air the show. The Dolphins terminated Johnsons contract Sunday night, about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving Lozada, who is on the reality TVshow Basketball Wives. Ev and Ocho was conceived as a spinoff and had been slated to debut Sept. 3. The Dolphinsdecision to release Johnson left coach Joe Philbin with a dearth of experience at receiver and a potential backlash in the locker room. Philbin decided Johnsons knack for outlandish antics were a detriment that outweighed potential contributions from the six-time Pro Bowl receiver. It wasnt about one specific thing. It just wasnt going to work, Philbin said. It didnt feel like to me that this fit was going to be right for us as an organization, or for Chad. It was time to move on. It wasnt done to send a message. It was done because it just didnt feel right. Several players came to Johnsons defense, saying he was a good teammate and friend during his two months with the Dolphins (No. 27 in the APPro32). Linebacker Karlos Dansby said he was upset about the teams handling of the matter because he felt Johnson deserved another chance. Safety Reshad Jones agreed the decision to let Johnson go seemed hasty. It was shocking to see he was going to be released a day after the incident, Jones said. It is pretty disappointing. But that was up to the coaching staff. Philbin, a first-year head coach, said he wasnt worried about losing the locker room. But he did take issue with Dansby sounding off publicly. Im of the opinion that you should keep things in house in that regard, Philbin said. The 34-year-old Johnson had been trying to revive his career after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011. He pledged to focus on football, then annoyed Philbin by frequently using profanity during an entertaining but R-rated session with reporters. In the Dolphinsexhibition opener Friday against Tampa Bay, he dropped the only pass thrown his way. On Monday, the teams other wideouts had trouble hanging onto the ball. Again and again, an accurate throw wound up on the ground, suggesting the modest reputation of the passcatching corps is welldeserved. What does Philbin think of the group? I wish we caught the ball a little better this morning, he said. The position was considered perhaps the teams weakest even with Johnson The remaining wideouts have combined for 490 career catches and 21 touchdowns, compared with Johnsons 766 and 67. Some of them arent as well known, and maybe dont have a history of production, Philbin said. But at some point youve got to have faith in people. Im confident that were going to get good receiving play here. The situation looks especially grim because Brian Hartline, a starter the past two years, has missed all of training camp with a calf injury. Davone Bess is an experienced possession receiver, but newcomer Legedu Naanee has been plagued in recent years by recurring foot injuries, and the rest of the cast is unproven. Roberto Wallace, who didnt catch a pass last season, led the Dolphins in receiving yards in their exhibition opener. The young guys get a little more opportunity, Bess said. Theyve got to step up. Not that the wideouts are Miamis lone area of concern. The quarterback position remains undecided, with holdover Matt Moore and first-round draft pick Ryan Tannehill battling for the job now that veteran David Garrard is sidelined by a knee injury. And the first-team defense played poorly against Tampa B ay. Given the overall outlook, Johnson might be missed mostly for his comic relief. The mood of the team? Weve got to get better regardless, Dansby said. If we lose one guy, weve just got to keep pressing forward. Weve got a lot of things to do, a lot of goals and a lot of improving to do. We went out there and laid an egg as a team. Weve got to get be tter. Chad Johnsons new reality show is pulled by VH1 Associated PressTAMPA The NFLcan be a cruel business for players on the fringes of a roster, and nobody knows it better than Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Tiquan Underwood. Underwood spent most of the 2011 season and postseason including Super Bowl week with the New England Patriots, but coach Bill Belichick released him the night before the big g ame. It was tough, Underwood recalled Monday, but coach Belichick makes all his roster decisions on Saturday whether its Week 1 or the day before the Super Bowl. It doesnt matter. Underwood was replaced on the roster by defensive tackle Alex Silvestro, who didnt play in the Patriots 21-17 loss to the New York Giants. (Belichick) had to make a decision and I was one of the latter guys on the depth chart, so its part of the business, Underwood explained. Hes going to make the best decision for h is team for that game, and he did that. As if to make it a little worse, the Patriots re-signed h im two days after the Super Bowl, then released him a gain three months later. The 25-year-old signed w ith the Bucs (No. 26 in the APPro32) in May, and so f ar he is making the most of it. The 6-foot-1, 187-pounder has been one of the most impressive receivers in the training camp. He caught three passes in Friday nights preseason opener at Miami, including a 44-yard catch in double coverage to set up a touchdown. Hes trying to make the club. Im not sure where he fits in yet, said coach Greg Schiano. He did have a good game the other night. I think consistency is going to be the key. He works hard and he understands what we want in this program, so if he can be consistent, hes got a good chance. One thing Underwood understands is Schiano, his head coach at Rutgers from 2005-08. But Underwood laughed at the suggestion that his history with Schiano might give him an edge. You know how this league is, he said. At the end of the day it doesnt matter if youve played for a guy or not. In this league its about doing your job, making plays and getting judged on the field. It was a lesson he learned in New England, even if his experience there ended in disappointment. Going up there changed my career, he said. The way they run their organization, I learned how to be a professional. I learned how to actually work on my craft. When youre there with Wes Welker every day, Deion Branch, the receivers, Tom (Brady) always being one of the first ones in the meeting room. Watching those guys work, its no secret why theyre so successful. They practice and work so hard, and I just try to take that and bring it wherever I go. While Underwood was with the Patriots, the Bucs were losing their final 10 games. But under Schiano, he sees some similarities. The training camps are very grueling, very hard, he said. Both coaches demand damned-near perfection; they want you to give your all every day. Training camp is about beating your body up and coming close together as a team so when times get rough during the season, you stick together and dont unravel. NOTES: Mondays practice session was cut short about 20 minutes by lightning. ... LTDonald Penn, who has yet to practice because of a strained left calf, wont be hurried. Circumstances wont ever dictate behavior around here, Schiano said. ... The Bucs will play Tennessee in their preseason home opener Friday night.

With the series wrap, trophies and ribbons were awarded to top finishers in the race and to the top finishers for the series. Full race results can be found at: RaceSmith.com. While the performances of all competitors were impressive, one of them stood out. Bjarne Mayer, 11, had an overall time of 23 minutes, 49 seconds, just edging out Chase Doty, 11 of Sebring, who is headed to IronKids National Championships in a few weeks at Des Moines, IA. Chase took second place overall, behind Bjarne, who hails from Steinheim, Germany. Though those at RHYTS can now joke that this is now an international race, Bjarne and his family are accomplished triathletes who were on vacation in Florida, visiting family near Clearwater when they found Rockn Heartland listed on a Florida triathlon Website. Afew phone calls later, race director Andrews had secured a loaner bicycle from a TriPOWER member unable to attend Sundays race for Bjarne and he was signed up. Hes been racing for about two years, said Frank Mayer, who had to translate for his son. Hes done five races this year but hadnt trained for this one because our season has been over for about three weeks. An avid triathlete himself, the senior Mayer had raced twice in Kona, Hawaii, as an age grouper for Ironman world championship and he has raced Floridas Panama City Ironman twice. Bjarne raced twice at Konas Dip & Dash for youth held during the big Ironman race. He wants to be first out of the water, Mayer said, helping his son answer the question: Whats your goal for this race? Hes just doing this for fun. There are so many aspects of putting on this series that are rewarding to our race committee. The look of determination from serious and casual competitors, the sense of accomplishment and smiles on the childrens faces at the finish line and the words of praise from the parents who come from all over the state and world to provide their children with this top-notch experience. Without our volunteers and support from the YMCA, Rockn Heartland would not be possible, Andrews said. But, more importantly, i ts our volunteersdedication to excellence that is most noticed by our guest families. Almost to a T, I and our committee staff, hear comments from experienced race families that our event is quickly becoming one of their favorite destination races. Now that were adding two more venues to the series, we will strive for the same level of commitment to excellence.

By JENNYBARCHFIELD Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO The Olympic flag touched down on Brazilian soil on Monday, marking the start of four years of preparations ahead of the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro. Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes waved the five-ringed flag as he and other top officials disembarked from the flight that brought them back from London, where they attended the gamesclosing ceremony o n Sunday. Speaking at a packed news conference at Rios Tom Jobim international airport, Paes called it an important moment for Rio and for Brazil at large. He pledged the games will leave a vast legacy for Rio, t he beachside metropolis that suffered from decades of neglect after it lost national capital status to Brasilia in 1960. I see the arrival of this Olympic flag as not the start, but the consolidation of an important process of transf ormation for the city of Rio de Janeiro, he said. Rio is a city that spent the lions share of its history, much more time than it should have, looking toward the past. Im sure that this process of transformation, this turning toward the f uture, has been consolidated here. He added the most important effects of the Olympics are sometimes, many times, the intangible transformations, the impalpable ones related to the brand of a country, the brand of a city, with the self-esteem of a country. Ahandful of demonstrators gathered outside the airport to protest against expulsions connected with Olympic projects and others tied to the 2014 soccer World Cup, which Brazil is also hosting. The Popular Committee for the World Cup and Olympics, which organized the protest, says as many as 170,000 people risk being removed from their homes, or already have been removed, due to projects related to the two megaevents. The group says some 4,000 people living in the socalled Vila Autodromo, where the Olympic Park is to be constructed, are facing expulsion. Activists have complained of a lack of consultation between the government and the affected communities and also of low compensation paid out to those kicked out of their homes. Asked about the governments plan was for the residents of Vila Autodromo, Paes responded that nothing would be done without extensive consultations. No one is going to throw anyone out of anywhere ... without there being an alternative, he said. The people will only leave there with lots of consultations, with lots of discussion, with lots of respect. He added that some of those opposed to the evictions were people who are always railing against the government. Thats why things were paralyzed for so long. They dont want anything to happen here. The Olympic flag, made out of silk for the 1988 games in Seoul, South Korea, will be temporarily housed in the City Hall and will be open to viewings by visitors. Olympic flag arrives in Rio, marking race to 2016 I see the arrival of this flag as not the start, but the consolidation of an important process of transformation for the city of Rio de Janeiro.

C M Y K t ime teams. As far as a different approach, or changes from last years game plan, Scott k nows that there will always be some change at this level. Given the continual carrousel of high school sports, a n ever-changing list of kids coming and going, teams h ave to adapt what they do to the type of kids they have. Rather than forcing different types of players into a set system, the system has to adapt to the talent of the kids. Its like Tim Tebow playing in a pro style offense, explained Scott. What did Denver do? They changed what they do to fit what Tebow does. That is what we have to do with our kids in high school, you have different groups every year. Scott did agreed with the comments made on Max Preps that they were athletic, but undersized, stating that they maybe have three kids that are over 250 pounds. He was also quick to add that they may not be the biggest, but they were going to be a very physical team. Offensively and defensively, we have a good nucleus coming back, Scott said. We just need to get more points on the board. When asked if there was one game, besides Avon Park, that he or the team were looking forward to, surprisingly the answer was Frostproof. Since last years loss to the Bulldogs, the teams have also had two scrimmages, which they split, and got heated at times as players from both teams got into verbal confrontations. As for Scotts goals for his team this year, they were about the basics. I want to go out there and make someone have to beat us. If we lose to a team that has more talent, I can live with that, when we lose because of mental mistakes and turning the ball over, that I cant live with, he said. When kids become undisciplined and start doing their own thing, being out of position, especially against good teams, you end up paying for it. Sebring is in a tough district with teams like Winter Haven and Lake Gibson, while Scott also noted that Bartow is going to be a lot better as most of their starters will be returning. And on whether he thought that Sebring would make the playoffs this year: We do not talk about playoffs. All I talk to the kids about is practicing hard and going out on Friday and doing what we ask them to do, Scott said. There has never been a State title here, we dont talk about it. There has never been a district title here, we dont talk about it. We just talk about our game, laying it on the line. Making someone beat us and not beating ourselves.

Area work on logos and s uch have helped keep Ritter b usy, as well as sharpen his skills further. But there was always a project he had in mind. I played at Firemens Field while in high school and always wanted to paint something there, he said. Ive been talking to the Firemen about doing something for a while and recently talked with coach Buck (Rapp), which kind of put it into motion. And so the work began and is already nearly complete, with the results to the Blue Streaks benefit and to Ritters, albeit humble, credit. It was just kind of good timing, he said. Where they finally decided to get it done at a time where I dont stink anymore.
