C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Susan Benton is running for a third term as Highlands County sheriff. A fifth-generation Floridian from Miami-Dade County,Benton became a deputy sheriff here in 1979. Prior to joining the sheriffs office,she worked as a physical education teacher and then a police officer in Miami-Dade County public schools.

The few women who served as sheriffs earlier were all widows of men who had died in office and only served out their husbandsterms.

Ware has authored a unique novel that she feels is different than many of the other works out right now. W ares first published work,Dead Hypocrites,was begun several years ago in 2006. Upon recently completing the book during the up and coming self-publishing era,Ware decided to do just that. W ares novel became first an e-book available for purchase on any e-reader o r electronic smart device before the task of self publishing. The novel is of the fiction genre and p ortrays a message of faith as Ware classifies it as a Christian fiction book. The book is about a detective who is a Christian but is struggling with his faith. He has a lot of questions about it.A serial killer comes to his town and starts killing Christians who are hyp-o crites all the while the detective is hanging on to his faith,explained W are. According to Ware,the book has been accepted positively by the peoplew ho she knows have read it. The book was inspired by something Ware heard i n passing regarding the entertainment level of books. I got the desire to write this book b ecause I heard someone say one day Christian fiction is boring.So I sort of took that as a challenge to write a C hristian book that is entertaining, Ware said. T he book at first gained no real positive response but after a few years of hard work on the self-publishing side, Ware was able to get the book out to the public. It was a really good feeling to see my name on the front of a book,Ware s aid. Ive seen it on the e-publishings, but this is just a different feeling. W are,whose newspaper columns have run in the News-Sun since July 1998,is hoping that her already estab-l ished fan base will help the book become a success. My hope is that it appeals to people t hat like my column ... People who want a clean,no bad language,no hot s teamy sex scene book. Yes,there is a little violence in it; its about a serial killer so,of course,but there is a story there. Its a man trying to still see God in a world where you cant always seeH im,Ware said. I want to give people entertainment,but also something to think about. Dead Hypocritesis currently available on Amazon.com for $17.99. Ware will be holding her very first b ook signing from 3-5:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11 at Brewsters Coffee Shop, 2 191 U.S. 27 North,in the plaza next to Home Depot. Ware will be selling copies of her book at a discountedp rice at her book signing. As for the book itself,Ware is p leased with it. The author designed the cover and feels that her communication skills have grown even strongera fter the completion of her first novel. Ware already has a second,non-related book in the works as well as a collect ion of her columns. Im hoping that it sells well. I just w ant to write good Christian books ... with a positive message. I think we need more of that out here,Ware said. I enjoyed writing this book. Its special to me,so Im hoping people willr ead it and enjoy it and share it with others. Ware plans book signing for first published novel N ews-Sun photo by SAMANTHA GHOLARL aura Ware will hold a book signing for her novel Dead Hypocrites on Sunday, Nov. 11, at Brewsters Coffee Shop in Sebring.

D espite the pull of voting just like our great and greater g randparents did,many of us here at the News-Sun are glad for the flexibility ofe arly voting. For those of you who will b e voting Tuesday,enjoy the experience. For those of you who already voted,thank you for being a patriotic citizen. Now almost all thats left i s to hear the election returns. We all need to remember t hat although the two presidential candidates offer opposite solutions on manys ubjects and have vastly different world views,no matter who wins,it is not the end of the world. America has survived terrib le presidents like Millard Fillmore,James Buchanan a nd Warren G. Harding,and the assassinations of presidents Abraham Lincoln,J ames Garfield,William McKinley,John F. Kennedy a nd the attempted assassination of Ronald Regan. As a people,we have weathered difficult times. We are,however,disapp ointed in the state legislatures conduct this year. Our c oncern is the proposed amendments the legislature put on the ballot. N o good can come out of e lected representatives passing off difficult decisions to the electorate as a whole. Put bluntly,the News-Sun thinks the legislature coward-l y ducked its responsibilities. Making difficult decisions is exactly what constituents elect their representatives to do. By proposing amendments and forcing voters tom ake the difficult decisions, legislators avoid being held r esponsible for their ideas. They dont even have to state their opinion. In the mean-t ime,voters must do their best to make choices based o n next to no information. Two amendments in particular show how lazy and cowardly the legislature is. Amendment 5 is an a ttempt to give the legislature more control of the judicial b ranch. If the legislature wants to have more power, then its only fair for itsm embers to personally vote o n the record and explain why. Amendment 6,which would align the states abortion laws with federal laws isa nother case of wimping out. Federal representatives and senators,for example,did not ask the nation to vote on the issues while they created the laws. They voted on ther ecord themselves. That was the brave,honest thing to do. W hen it comes to controversial issues,using amendments to make law comesd own to giving legislators a get out of jail free pass, T he politicians are setting us up for the fall should things not work out as well as expected. Bet on it,should any of the amendments haveu nintended consequences, the first thing our elected o fficials will say is,t blame me,its the voters fault. I thought it was a badi dea from the beginning. Cowardly state legislature passes the buck to voters Granted there is something special about election day when Americans act together,all doing the same thing over the course of 12 hours and several time zones. As someone who has g one a few rounds with a h urricane or two,my sympathies are with those in the Northeast who have been dealing with Sandy. M y hope and prayer is that people will bounce back f rom what the storm has l eft behind. Looking at Sandy,I reali ze there are some lessons we can take from this storm. So turn off the Weather Channel for am oment while we ponder the following: If you live in a place t hat might get a hurricane, s ooner or later its going to happen. We learned this in Highlands County a fewy ears ago,when Hurricane Charley came roaring through the heartland. Wdt hought it couldnt happen to us. We were very wrong. Same with the Northeast. W e associate hurricanes with the south. Nope,they can hit up north too,as many people can testify tot his week. Some things trump p olitics. This is the last week before the election. Normally wed be up to our necks with accusations,fin-g er-pointing and character assassination. And thats just the media. But this week politics h ave been pushed aside for the sake of the storm. Even President Obama and Governor Romney have backed away from the political rhetoric and campaigning. Im sure it wont last theres too much at stake and politics are just too tempting to pass up on. But its not the main story at the moment. Of course,this doesnt mean that politics is dead if you wanted your political fix there were places to get it. But it was pushed off the headlines,for a few days at least. You can make a joke about anything. Pick any disaster. Before too long the jokes will start pouring in. No matter how tragic, someone somewhere will find a way to try and get a giggle out of it. I saw a lot of funny pictures on Facebook related to the hurricane. And this one statement by a wag: NYC:Florida called. You can keep the hurricane. Just because its on the Internet doesnt make it true. There were a numbero f pictures purporting to be of the storm. Many of them w ere fake. At least one was a still from The Day After Tomorrow,a forgettablem ovie about a disaster that overtakes,among other places,New York. I was taken in by one of the pictures. It showed sold iers at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,still standing guard in spite of what looked like a drenching rainstorm. It wasl abeled as taking place during Sandy. Turns out the picture was taken back in September. By the time I found that out I had already posted the picture on Facebook. Buta n article on the subject set me straight. The picture w as real but taken in September. In case you were wondering,according to an article on www.wtop.com,sen-t inels did guard the Tomb during Sandy.They were in an enclosure called the box,a place covered by a green awning. But theyw ere there,as they have been 24 hours a day,365 days a year,since April 6, 1948. In a crisis,we come together. One thing I love about my fellow Americans is that when there is a crisis,we pull together and pitch in. I am confident that we will see that here as well. We will give aid to our countrymen in need and lay aside our differences,if only for a moment. Keep those who were in Sandys path in your thoughts and prayers. As we Floridians know,hurricanes can wreak havoc. Lets do what we can for those who need it now. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Stand up for Avon ParkEditor: I have been a resident of Avon Park for most of my 43 years. I love this city a nd would not trade my experiences here for anything. I was blessed to be raised on beautiful Lake Tulane surrounded by family. My wife and I are raising two children here; she is a school teacher,and I am a local business owner. No,Avon Park is not the same as it was a few decades ago when I was a child. Weh ave our challenges with the housing market,blight,and limited funding. We s eem to be the brunt of jokes,and any small controversy or negative is immediately blown out of proportion and becomes front page news. Though some o f these articles have merit,many do not and they always seem to take precedent over the positives. There are a lot of successful,hardworking people in Avon Park that care deeply about this city and all of its residents. There are a lot of good things happening in this town,and more people would be aware of this if they would get more involved. Instead of sitting back and getting beat up in the newspaper,radio,blogs,etc ..,lets do something about it,get involved,and have ammunition for the naysayers. Here are a few examples of organizations that add great value and support to this community:Avon Park Church Service Center,Avon Park Chamber of Commerce,Avon Park Champions Club,Avon Park Diamond Club,Boy Scouts,Girl Scouts,Meals on Wheels, Rotary International,school PTA organizations,a number of youth sports,and the list goes on. I suggest instead of criticizing city officials and council members without knowing the facts,volunteer to serve on a city committee,attend council meetings and listen,and voice your opinion as a civilized,informed adult. Instead of wasting time and effort on such nonsense as recall elections,lets elect officials that are getting the job done. One of the best ways to ensure Avon Park is on the right path is to conduct your research on our city council candidates and make an educated vote. If you have conducted this research and attended city council meetings,youll find that we are headed down the right path. During tough economic times our city manager and current city council have worked together to balance our budget and have gone from deficits to reserves a novel concept from which our Federal government should learn. Knowing we have funds in reserve should give us peace of mind,especially due to our location in hurricane alley. We are very blessed to have the most conscientious and capable city manager in the history of this city. Mr. Deleon is a very smart,caring and competent manager as evident in his track record. Why would we want to do anything to reverse all the sound decisions that have been made in the past few years? Given the turnover and lack of solid leadership from city managers in the past,we should all be commending the council for hiring Mr. Deleon and pray he will stay. Again,do your research,its all public record,and you will be impressed with the progress being made. We are not all going to agree on important issues,so we need to trust our city council to make wise decisions for the good of the entire city. Lets stand up for Avon Park,volunteer,cast educated votes,and make a positive difference. God bless. Charles Devlin Avon ParkWorlds greatest need is superior leadersEditor: The worlds greatest need is superior leaders. Past presidents and other leaders have given us promises that would correct our nations problems,and most of the time,they dont follow through with it. We need a leader who is precise with his/her words and will prosper with every solution they propose. For example,Americas leaders today have not done significantly well to justify all of us as a nation. Of course you cannot please everyone,but it seems there are even more dilemmas than there were a few years ago. Whoever is going to be our future president must have genuine potential for the coming of our nations forthcomings. A president who will create equal opportunities for everyone in America, who will lead us out of our catastrophic debt,reinforce our middle class,and so much more. Naturally,this would not be solved in a brief period of time,there will be obstacles along the way and it wont be so easy to overcome. As long as we start out strong,we must finish strong. It is not only a presidents job alone, but as a nation we must work harder to reach our goal whatever it may be. Even though our country has many complications to solve,it is not half of what our world needs. There are uncountable needs this world has,but if we eliminate each problem one by one, it will make our world a much healthier place to live in. It is our job to collaborate and connect with one another so we will achieve great things.

Standing in line at the checkout at a variety store,the lady next to me remarked that my accent seemed to be New York style. I replied that yes, and I was from Greenpoint,Brooklyn. She high-fived me and said she also was from Greenpoint. We exchanged street names,churches,etc. and lo and behold,it was a once in a lifetime coinicidence. Unfortunately,I had a pressing doctors appointment and had to rush out to make it. We did not exchange names or phone numbers because of my haste (which I now am terribly sorry for). I thank the editor for placing this in a forum from which the lady from Greenpoint hopefully will see and call me at 465-6618. Hank Kowalski Lake Placid

Returning to the sheriffs office in 1989, Benton served a gain as a deputy sheriff, a sergeant of school resource, a lieutenant of administrative services, and then lieutenant of criminal investigations before being elect-e d sheriff in 2004. She was reelected in 2008. Benton received two degrees a bachelors degree in Administrative Justice from St.T homas University, and a masters degree in Public A dministration from Troy State University. She also is a certified public manager. B enton has taken numerous a dvanced and specialized law e nforcement courses. Among many awards, she was elected president of the Florida Sheriffs Association earlier this year. For her third term Benton said, My major goal is to keep us a float with no money. Trying to c ontinue the level of service. The major challenge is to keep up with crime technology, which is tough with no money Benton said staying abreast of electronic advances means more than keeping office computers upt o date. So many of the frauds and scams today are computer related, she said. Even burglaries, sex crimes and homicides often have a technological component. B enton said computers are needed for all kinds of forensic work in the virtual, as well as ther eal, world. C ell phones have become m uch more complex, for example, she said. They are capable of emailing or taking pictures. Computers are needed to retrieve evidence from hard drives, or tot race money being moved from b ank to bank, and to make best u se of the most recent physical sciences, she added. After assessing the future, Benton returned to the present. The bottom line, she said, is that I am prepared academically and technically, and I havep roven leadership. The sheriffs o ffice has 350 employees, she added. It comes with unbelievable responsibility and I dont take it lightly. I try to do the right thing for the right reason, at the rightt ime. C ontinued from page 1A at the Inglesia Cristo TeAma ( Christ Loves You Church) and a member of the Ministerial Associations of Avon Park, Sebring and Lake Placid. Garcia is devout in his faith. T he only reason he is running, he said, is because God made it known to him that he had mission. Thats my passion, to work w ith the people of the county, he said. The relationship between law enforcement and the people has fallen apart. I want to bring back that relationship. Ill have an open-door policy for everybody. Call, and if Im there, you walk in. People wantt o talk to the sheriff. I want to hear people. They are our ears, eyes and mouth. H e will have all deputies introduce themselves and hand o ut their cards to the people they serve in their assigned sectors. Of course, they are the law, he added, and well do (our workb y the law. But, we are not above the law. Deputies are paid by the people. Some dont understand that. He has concerns, however, a bout morale in the sheriffs office. Im going to have to bring it up again. He said he has no intention of firing officers should he be elected. If theyc ould work with Sheriff Benton, they can work with me. Garcia has two main issues of particular concern to him. One is doing even more with c hildren in the schools; the other is doing more for inmates in the jail. You have to help people inj ail, he said, so they dont come back. Right now its a revolving door H e would ask members of the community and local agencies to p artner with the county to bring more services to the children Garcia is a big advocate of the Police Athletic League (PAL) and help former inmates get jobs and turn their lives around. The l ower the crime rate, Garcia s aid, the more people will want to move into the county G arcia thinks Benton made a m istake doing away with motorc ycle officers. Theyre faster following a car, he said. He worries about the recent spate of bank robberies. There have been three in a month and a half, he said. I would meet with every bank and go over their (security systems). In terms of specifics, like budget issues and the organizat ion of the sheriffs office, Garcia s aid, Im not inside; I cant tell y ou. Once Im there Ill form my structure and policies. They will b e built on trust, building relat ionships, and an open door policy C ontinued from page 1A Garcia running for sheriff Benton seeks re-election By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING In celebration of A merican politics, or perhaps to provide a distraction from it, West Center I mprov a group of young people at the Highlands Little Theatre present Vote for Me, an evening ofs tand-up comedy, improvisations and some of the funniest bits from shows like Whose Line is it Anyway?

They were guided by City Attorney Gerald Buhr,who wrote the initial revision of the proposed charter based on a review of other city charters. George Hall,who chaired the committee,said,we did everything to get it ready, but wording and printing problems emerged during the charters final reading that required corrections. Making those changes, however,is time consuming. Public hearings have to held again,all properly noticed. Because of the time constraints,the city could not meet the ballot deadline. Continued from page 1A deputies,Benton said. She is the current president of theF lorida Sheriffs Association. The loyalty and sacrifice to service is what law enforcement live for every day they are committed to dedicating their lives to ensure the safety and protection ofo ur citizens. This decline in crime is more than a drop in n umbers; it shows the promise of the men and women within our law enforcement agencies. According to the FBIs w ebsite,the creation of a national crime data tracking system began in the 1920s. Since the 1930s the FBI has been the official collector ofc rime statistics from all over the country. Seven index crimes are tracked by the Uniform Crime Report:murder, forcible sex offenses,robbery,aggravated assault,burglary,larceny and motor vehicle theft. The report calculates crime volume,which is the total number of known indexc rimes,Benton said. The report then calculates both volume and rate of crime based on the number of index crimes reported per 1,000p eople. E very six months the statistics are released. The report is designed to show law enforcement agen-c ies trends over time for the p urposes of planning and developing policies. According to pubrecords.com and listed as raw numbers,not adjusted figures,so far in 2012 Highlands County as a whole has experienced:328 aggravated assaults; 928 burglaries; 22 forcible rapes; 6 infant deaths; 1,735 larcenies and thefts; 174 motor-vehicle thefts; 4 murders; and 72 robberies.

The phones at the office have been ringing withi ncreasing frequency as Election Day draws near. However,as the big day approaches,Campbell again said there have been nom ajor problems either with voting or with those electioneering for their favoritec andidates. He again urged residents who have address changes or other issues toc all his office or come in to make adjustments before t hey go to the polls to avoid having to cast a provisional ballot. C ampbell said his cadre of elections office staff and p oll workers are ready for the Tuesday onslaught. re running on adrenaline right now,he said As in years past, C ampbell has urged senior citizens and those who can w ait to hold off coming to the polls at peak hours to make it easier for those ont heir way to work to cast their ballots. They probably will be able to avoid the crowds if they come in the mid-morn-i ng or mid-afternoon,he said. Because there are a number of constitutional amendments on the ballot andm erit retention issues cobbled together with races ranging from city council races to the President of the United States,Campbell has a dvised voters they may want tom ark a sample ballot or bring theirh omework with them to m ake their voting experience go more quickly. S ome of the ballot processing also has gotten u nderway. The canvassing board convened Friday to begin working on the thousands of absentee ballots that haveb een returned. e began opening and p rocessing the absentees and running them through the system,Campbell said. M ore than 8,000 absentees already have been r eturned with an average of 3 00 per day coming into the o ffice. e expect that level to go on right through Election Day,he said. Campbell said the canvassing board could easily continue working through the weekend and well into Tuesday to make certain all the absentees are processed and counted in time for the final election totals. Joining Campbell on the board are Highlands CountyC ommission Chairman Jack R ichie and Highlands C ounty Judge Anthony Ritenour. Some of the election staff has been helping us as well,Campbell said. It is a tedious process and it has to be done right. This will be Campbells last election as supervisor. H e has chosen to retire after a nearly 40-year career.

C M Y K Dear Abby: I have a friend,Dick,who wears veteran hats Vietnam Vet,Proud to Be aM arine,etc. that imply he was in the service. The problem is,Dick was never in any branch of the military at any time. Dick claims hes honoringthem by wearing the hats. But when he goes intoa restaurant or other place that offers military discounts,he always inquires about them. And he has never refused the offer of one or admitted he wears the slogans only to honor others and was never actually in the service himself. I come in contact with real military service people who deserve to wear these hats. I asked a couple of them about what to do with Dick,but you cant print their responses. Abby,whats your take? Values Honesty in Ohio Dear Values Honesty: The fact that I cant print the reaction of legitimate veterans to what Dick is doingi ndicates how offensive and wrong it is. It appears your friend is a small-time,chiseling con man who takes advantage of peoples patriotism. Why you would call someone like this a friend is puzzling,because you seem to have a well-developed sense of right and wrong. A word of advice:Sooner or later,people like Dick are discovered. When that happens,it would be better if you werent around,because people are judged by the company they keep. Dear Abby: I am dating a wonderful man,Andrew, who has two sons,ages 10 and 12. Both of them have horrible table manners. Eating with them is like watching pigs at a trough. I have discussed this with Andrew,who agrees but has done nothing to correct them. I dont know how to instill proper eating manners in the boys without coming across as though Im better than they are. Do you have any suggestions? The Napkin Goes on the Lap Dear Napkin: You cant blame the boys for not knowing something they were never taught. However, lecturing them at this point would be counterproductive and could cause a rift between you and your boyfriend. E nlist Andres help and discuss with his sons the difference between casual table manners and those that are expected when people dine in public or at a friends house. You and Andrew should also mentionhow good the food is at some of the local restaurants. This will give the boys an incentive when you both offer to take them if they learn whats expected in public. Tell them youre willing to teach them,explain the rules,model the behavior and help them practice. Then reward them by taking them to the restaurants and praising them if they do well. Dear Abby: Im a 56year-old man who made some bad decisions when I was 16. I stole items from a close family member to pay for a drug habit. After 30 years of sobriety,what I didc ontinues to cause me grief and torment. I am torn over confessing to this family member because I know that when I do,any relationship between us will end. Do I confess to clear my conscience,or do I remain silent and tormented by what I did? Distraught in Texas Dear Distraught:I think, deep down,you already know the answer to that question,so Ill give you the final push youre asking for to do the right thing. One of the 12 steps in AA is to make amends to the people you have hurt. You are no longer the person you were at 16,so apologize and show you are willing to take responsibility for what you did. It will end your torment and you may find that the revelation is nowhere near as shocking as you think it will be. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren.

Y es,I still go to the polls. I know early voting is e ncouraged; but,for me,it can be premature voting as one never knows what mays till be revealed about a candidate that can cause a d ifferent choice to be made.I heard someone bemoan that fact recently having voted early and wishing she could change h er vote. By the many signs posted in the community,it was obvious that the candidates were encouraging voters tot ake the primary elections seriously.Unfortunately, t he primary numbers indicate that many give up half their voting rights whent hey wait for the general elections only.And some j ust figure their votes dont count anyway. However,when the prim aries were over and the last votes counted,it was unmistakably true that every vote counts. In the State House ofR epresentatives race,Dr. Cary Pigman and Randy Johnson had been neck in neck. A recount followed.Who w ould be the winner? At last the verdict was i n. Dr. Cary Pigman had won by 34 votes. I can imagine that in both camps,they must have just shaken their heads as they realized once again how impor-t ant every vote is whether winning or losing. Voting is such a privilege and is ane xercise of good citizenship. If we the peopledont take every opportunity to allow our v oice to be heard,then we have no right to complain later. I love the story in the Bible where Jesus confounds his challengers. T he religious leaders,the Pharisees,put their heads t ogether and plotted to entangle Jesus in the things he would say.And,so,theya sked a sticky question as seen in Matthew 22:17 & 2 1,NKJV. ell us,therefore,what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar,or not? J esus,who could read the motivation of their h earts said,Show Me the tax money. With the denarius in h and,Jesus asked them whose image and inscript ion was on the coin. They replied immediately, Caesars. Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesars,and to God the things that are Gods, Jesus replied. H is answer shows us that good citizenship involves godly choices. Lets make godly choices by voting for candidatesw ho hold to eternal values that have been foundational t o our form of government. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a N ews-Sun correspondent.

Decide on a theme or an anchor activity gingerbread decorating, caroling,ugly holiday sweaters and specify ad ress code on the invitation. s fun to have an excuse t o dress up,Rollins says. oull build excitement around the event if guestsk now what to expect. Decor should echo the theme and reinforce the style o f party you want to have. But dont feel you have to s tick with a traditional holiday color palette or decorations. Thanksgiving doesnt have to mean orange and Christmas doesnt have tom ean red and green,says Rollins. Lyric Turner,the owner of Red House Staging and Interiors in Washington, D.C.,suggests introducing a warm color palette bur-g undy,chocolate brown,purple and orange through a ccent pillows,throws or curtains to create a festive look in an unexpected way. If you are going to bring in red and green elements toy our decorating,keep the rest of your space neutral. A cacophony of color is too much,says Turner.Setting the stageWhether your party is large or small,deciding where to put the guests can be tricky. Many people make the mistake of removing all the furniture for a cocktail party,says Rollins,but its important to have places to sit. our living space should be structured for conversation,says Turner. She recommends creating seating clusters around the house. Anywhere you have a little extra room an entryway, an office you can group a few chairs around a small table. Rollins emphasizes the need for tables and stools spread throughout the gath-e ring spaces. Pretend youre a drink, s he says. Where will you go? Too much furniture,howe ver,can feel claustrophobic. Some editing is necess ary,says Turner,to allow for traffic flow. oure adding a lot with h oliday decor,she adds. If youre not taking anything out,youre just adding clutt er.Setting the lightsThe right lighting makes y our home (and your guests look their best. Our experts agreed that overhead lighting has no place in a party; place lamps on multiple levels throughout your rooms,dim the lights and add candlesw herever you can. Avoid candles by the bar a nd the buffet,though,cautions Rollins. You dont want your guests going up inf lames. She also suggests skipping s cented candles because they compete with the scent of the food. A nd while lighting should be low in conversation areas, keep bathrooms and food a reas better lit.Setting the tableFood can make or break a p arty,but Rollins insists, s not about what youre serving,its how its displayed. For buffets,she suggests using smaller dishes and refilling them frequently. P ush the dining table against the wall to create m ore space for mingling around the food,Turner recommends. And a signature cocktail a dds a festive touch,and can streamline bar mess and bar costs. For dinner parties,Mindy Weiss,a Los Angeles-basedp arty planner,suggests setting the table the evening before the party. Personalized place cards are a thoughtful touch andc an be tailored to any theme. My guests were given Im thankful for.nametags one Thanksgiving,Rollins says. As I made my toast,I said, I am thankful for all of you gathered with me today to celebrate the blessings weh ave.And I asked each guest to reflect on what they were thankful for.Details, detailsI s the small touches that really bring your party to the n ext level. Turner recommends wowing guests with a spa-like bathroom:Remove all your junk and replace it with a sprig of pine,a can-d le,new hand soap and lotion. P rovide a stack of rolled hand towels so guests dont have to share the same (increasingly dampwel,T urner suggests. If children are invited, Weiss suggests having spaces and activities available to them a table withc onstruction paper turkeys or wreath-making kits so parents can relax. As for where to hang coats,Rollins recommends ar olling coat rack in a bedroom. Its so much nicer than just throwing them on the bed,she says. She also recommends b eing prepared for winter weather:eep salt and shovels on hand,she cau-t ions. And make sure driveways and entryways are well lit. A bove all,make guests feel welcome. Get the cleani ng and chores out of the way before they get there, and open your door to wel-c ome your guests looking like you didnt lift a finger a ll day,Weiss says.

There was a separate building in the back containing t he kitchen and dining area. She had 10 kids. She knew h er chickens by their cluck. A chicken would cluck when it laid an egg and Grandma would know which nest to go to for the egg,just by thec luck. Thus tells Kelly Bengtson of his pioneer grandmother. One of his ancestors came to the area in 1916,bought big acreage on Lake Istokpoga f or 25 cents an acre and in two years sold it for 50 cents an acre. K elly and his family are celebrating Sebrings 100th this year,just like so many o thers. He loves Sebring. Hes had job offers to go s omewhere else but refused to leave Sebring. On the other side of the family tree,Dean Bengtson helped build the AlcanH ighway in western Canada during World War II. That was a huge,important project,as it was feared Japan might invade Alaska. In fact, they did. But America was r eady for them and beat them back. Kellys father was Dean B engtson Jr.,who graduated from Sebring High School in the late 1950s. He was a p aint and body man. Kelly graduated from S ebring High in 1981. He fondly remembers his days there. He particularly liked ag classes and football. He has happy memories of hisf ather,including time with baseball and bat and fishing at Arbuckle Creek. Kelly,just out of high school,did maintenance work at Max Long,then b ecame a fireman and finally going into business for himself,as Native Lawn Care. He is married and has twos tep-children. Every year at E aster,Thanksgiving and C hristmas,the Bengtsons, H oltons,Schroders,Oggs a nd Goodwins get together. U sually 40-60 show up and a g ood time is had by all. The old house on Magnolia is still standing, occupied by a cousin. But alas,the chickens are gone, b ut not forgotten,as the descendant of pioneers looks back over the years.

LP Historical Society prepares to honor two new pioneers By SANDY COHEN A P Entertainment WriterLOS ANGELES It wasnt easy for J ohn C. Reilly to become Wreck-It Ralph. The 47-year-old Oscar nominee (for 2002s Chicago) initially didnt want the job,reticent about the scope of thep roject and the process of making animated movies. d heard that making animated movies for actors was often kind of this isolated,strange experience,Reillys aid. You go in and do your lines,and then you react to recorded lines from other people,and youre never in thes ame room at the same time and maybe you meet them at the premiere,the other actors. H d been told that animated films were made by committee,rather than t he directors vision guiding the project. And the previous animated roles he was offered never provided a completes cript. I was like,that doesnt sound fun at a ll,he said. That just sounds kind of like just an empty suit kind of job. But that wasnt his experience on Wreck-It Ralph.Reilly attended story meetings,met with animators to develop the look of his character and worked side by side with co-stars JackM cBrayer,Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman. e improvised a ton,he said. I really,really loved it. He did motion studies with the animat ion team,which incorporated Reills gestures and movements into the look of the massive-handed,9-foot-tall,643pound Ralph. I was like,This is how he gets up f rom a chair. Its like an eight-step process. Its kind of like an elephant raising itself off the ground,the actorr ecalled,adding that he recognized himself in the character,especially in the secondary gestures,like picking -at-h imself kind of things. Every single gesture and expression t hat a character makes in an animated movie means hundreds of hours,if not thousands of hours of work from ab unch of people,Reilly said,so I was really happy that they made the commitm ent to do those little subtle things to really finish out the character in a really detailed way like that. The filmmakers appreciated Reillys contributions so much that the actor earned a story credit. It turned into this dream job,the actor said. Im really glad that I took m y time trying to find the right animated thing to do first because this turned into something I can be really proud of,a nd that I put a lot of heart into,you know? If youre going to have an avatar o r something like that follow you for the rest of your life,it might as well be something that you really feel like you put a lot of heart into. John C.

Even though the baldcypress may resemble manye vergreen type trees,it does shed its foliage in the winter months giving it a baldlook,thus the name. Thisl egendary tree is known for its buttressed trunks,knees and moss draped branches. Known for theirm ajestic southern beauty,these trees serve a vital part in the ecosystems they live in. B aldcypress grow extremely tall, sometimes towering over 100 feet i n the air. Although generally associated with wet areas,cypress trees can also grow in drier soils. Theyc an be found in the coastal plains along the Gulf and the Atlantic O cean and north up through the Mississippi River Valley. The protruding upside down looking cones are called knees. The knees are actually part of the roots ystems. Historically,the knees were associated with the function of obtaining oxygen for the roots during flooded conditions.H owever,experiments have shown little exchange of oxygen between roots and knees. A more likely function of the knees is to provide stability in the swamp substrate. E ven though the tree is ideal for wet locations because of its unique root system,it can grow almost anywhere. It is not picky about soil type and will survive in most soilsu nless they are heavy alkaline above a pH of 7.5. The tree requires little maintenance and usually grows straight without a lot of curvature of the trunk. It doesn ot put on leaders and is a great choice for areas where a tall,vertical,pyramid shaped tree is desired. B aldcypress can live for over 600 years. They provide a valuable source of food and cover forw ildlife. Wild turkey,wood ducks, evening grosbeak,squirrels and C anadian geese migrating south, feed on the seeds. Swamp rabbits and birds,such as F lorida cranes and ducks also feed on parts of the tree. White-tailed d eer escape to the cover the baldcypress provides. The branches provide nesting places for bald eagles and osprey. The knees,when rotted out,pro-v ide nesting habitat for warblers. Catfish spawn beneath the fallen logs and many other critters find shelter in and around the base of the larger trees. When in the wild, baldcypress also diffuse and slowf loodwaters,which reduces flood damage. They also trap sediments and pollutants in the wetlands they live in. The fruit of the tree is a round cone that is about 3-inch to 1-i nch in diameter. The cones appear wrinkled,green and leathery. Once mature,the cones become woody. The needle-like leaves of the treeg row individually from the twig. They appear soft and feathery and are dull light green with a white underside. The tree is deciduous, thus its name baldfor thea ppearance it gives in the winter months. Before the needles are shed,they turn a brilliant coppery red. The bark appears brown turning to gray with scaly ridges thatp eel off in strips,leaving an interesting look during the winter. Baldcypress are members of the Redwood family.They bud in late December and generally bloom int he spring. Pollen is released when the flowers bloom. Seeds are produced inside the female cone,w hich can produce anywhere from 2 to 34 seeds. There are many cypress swamps l ocated in Highlands County. Some of the best places for viewing these w ondrous plant communities are the Sun N Lake Preserve, Istokpoga Park,HighlandsH ammock State Park and the Arbuckle Creek area. Corine Burgess is and Environmental S pecialist for the Highlands County P arks and Natural Resources D epartment. Guest columns are the o pinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun. Despite its name, baldcypress tree isnt always bald Courtesy photo B aldcypress trees are identified by their buttressed trunks and the k nees that protrude from the water.

C M Y K By LEE REICH A ssociated PressRoot pruningsounds like such a brutal way to treat a plant. Yet its a peri-o dic necessity once any potted plant has grown as large as you want it to. Potted plants like other plants grow,and while a5 0-foot-tall weeping fig is a glorious sight on a Caribbean island,my livingr oom ceiling wont allow it. Root pruning slows stem growth,and makes room forn ew soil and new roots. How often to root prune a ny potted plant depends on how fast that plant grows, and any quirks it has aboutb eing root-pruned. Angels trumpet,for example,gets o ne severe root and stem pruning every year,in fall. Root and stem pruning are needed to stimulate new stem growth,on which isb orne those eerily beautiful, pale-apricot-colored trump ets. Potted fig plants can fruit in pots as long as they getr oot pruned every year or two so that roots find new s oil to promote vigorous, annual stem growth. In contrast,after 19 years, I have yet to root prune my pony tail palm.Gimme spacePlants have subtle ways of indicating that their roots need new soil in which tor oam. Keep an eye out for plants that dry out too rapidly or send roots creeping out drainage holes. My ponytail palm burst its pot; perhaps its time to root prune or give it a larger pot. R oot prune any plant thats beginning to look too t all or too crowded in its pot or give it a larger pot. Exceptions include clivia, which thrives cramped for years in the same pot untile ventually bursting it. The best way to tell whether a plant needs root pruning is to slide the root ball out of the pot and exam-i ne it. Thick roots pressed right to the edge of a root ball,or circling its outside, indicate that the time to operate has come.Root surgeryTo root prune,take a sharp knife,grit your teeth,and slice a one-half to 2-inch layer of soil from all around and underneath the root ball. The larger the root ball,the more soil and roots can be removed. Then go over the whole root ball again,this time with a pronged hand cultivator or a stick,loosening soil and roots on the outside. Also prune back any lanky or damaged roots. With roots pruned,the plant is ready to return to its pot. Put a stone or screen over any drainage holes, then shovel in enough soil so that the base of the plants stem sits one-half to 1 inch below the rim. Gradually fill the space between the root ball and the pot with potting soil,tamping it in place with your finger tips or a blunt stick. Watering is important during the couple of weeks or more that a plant is recovering from root pruning. Right after pruning,give the planta thorough soaking. When new growth begins,make sure all the soil stays moist the old soil because even with its reduced size it must still support the plant,and the new soil to encourage new root growth there. (Cactii and other succulents are an exception:Let their soil thoroughly dry between waterings,even a fter root pruning.) Finally,prune the stems so the reduced root system has fewer leaves to support. Besides,the whole purposeo f root pruning has been to keep the plant from growing larger. Rest assured that plants tolerate all this pruning. Just look at bonsai trees,whose h eights can still be measured in inches after hundreds of years. They are kept that way with regular root and shoot pruning. F or more about all types of pruning,see my The Pruning Book(Taunton Press,2010).

Increasing a proper-t s curb appeal can be done in many ways,but a wellpruned lawn and garden gives buyers the impression that the sellers truly took thet ime to maintain the home and the surrounding property. Unfortunately,many homeowners choose exoticp lants when addressing their landscape. Though these plants can b e appealing and make a property stand out,if the plants are not native to ther egion,they could be doing more harm than good. I nstead of upgrading your property with exotic plants from a far away land,consid-e r the following benefits of c hoosing native plants before addressing your landscape. Native plants benefit local wildlife. The native plants and the native wildlifes pent years and years evolving together,with each doing their part to ensure the others survival. But as development continued,l ocal wildlife suffered because of lost food sources. The local wildlife needs local,native plants to survive,so choosing thesep lants instead of exotic plants can help ensure the survival of wildlife that helpsk eep the ecosystem in check. Native plants require less work. Some prospective h ome buyers might find a yard filled with exotic plants t o be visually stunning,but they might also see a good deal of work to maintaint hose plants. Many exotic p lants require significant work on a homeowners part to survive,while native plants have already adapted to the local climate and willr equire much less care. This is often attractive to current and future homeowners alike. Native plants might be a better investment. A native plant has evolved over the years to survive in its given area. Local insect populations and fungal infec-t ions might be able to destroy an exotic plant,but a native plant has grown resist-a nt to such problems and likely has the ability to fight such infestations or infec-t ions on its own. An exotic plant might require costly p esticides and considerable attention from homeowners to survive such problems. T hough homeowners The case for choosing native plants

But Superstorm Sandy has created legions of people who cant wait to get back to the office. They include parents who have struggled t o juggle conference calls while their kids scream in the background. Also families who have fought for days over the use of a single home computer. And even execs who conducted business with the only device they had with reliable Internet access:their s martphone. About one-third of Americans typically work from home,but massive flooding, p ower outages,transit shutdowns and school closings that followed Sandy forced at thous ands more from North Carolina to Maine to do so. And many learned that its not all its cracked up to be.

Hurricane Sandy shows some people its not as nice as they thought it would be As we honor our armed forces this Veterans Day,l ets also acknowledge the financial challenges they and their families often face,both while in service and after discharge. Fortunately,service m embers neednt go it alone:Many tax benefits, s ocial services and financial assistance programs are available to help. S pecial tax benefits for active duty personnel i nclude: If you move because of a permanent change of station,you may be able to deduct unreimbursed mov-i ng expenses. If you serve in a comb at zone for any part of a month,any military pay you received during thatm onth is not considered taxable income. You can also include nontaxable combat pay as earned incomewhenc laiming the Earned Income Tax Credit for lowto moderate-income earne rs. Deadlines for filing tax r eturns,paying taxes,filing refund claims and taking other actions with the IRS are automatically extended for qualifying militarym embers. Joint tax returns generally must be signed by both spouses. But,when one spouse is unavailable due to military duty,you may use a power of attorney tof ile a joint return. I f youre an armed forc e s reserves member,you can deduct unreimbursed trave l e xpenses for travel more than 100 miles from home to perform reserve duties. As you transition to civilian life,you may be able to deduct certain jobhunting costs.

It was the last to blast into orbit,more than a year ago,and itsf inal crew members were expected to join a few dozen other astronauts at Fridays daylong hurrah. s only a priceless artifact driving 9.8 miles and it weighs 164,000 pounds,s aid Tim Macy,director of project development and c onstruction for Kennedys visitor complex operator, the company Delaware North. Other than that,no press ure at all,Macy said, laughing. Only the eyes of the country and the world and everybody at NASA is watching us. But we dontf eel any pressure.He paused. Of course,we feel pressure! The relocation of Atlantis has been plotted out for months,he noted,and experienced shuttle workers will take part. s not like its Tim and his buddies out here loadingt his up,Macy said last week. Wre using the e xpertise of NASA. Atlantis will travel a mere 2 mph atop a 76-w heeled platform. The roundabout loop will take t he shuttle past Kennedys headquarters building for a ceremony and then to as till-under-design industrial park for public viewing. Tourist tickets run as high a s $90 apiece for a chance to see the spaceship up c lose. Crews removed 120 light poles,23 traffic signals and 56 traffic signs in order for Atlantis to squeeze by. Oneh igh-voltage power line also had to come down. Staff trimmed back some scrub pines,but there was none of the widespread tree-axing that occurred in Los Angeles. A tlantis will traverse just one noticeable incline,a h ighway ramp. The rest of the course is sea-level flat. The grand entrance into Atlantisnew home also should be smooth going.O ne complete wall of the exhibit hall was kept off, carport-style,so the shuttle could roll right in. Once safely inside, A tlantis will be plasticwrapped for protection until the building is completed. The grand opening is set for July 2013.

Special to the News-SunI NDIANAPOLIS The National FFA Organization r ecently selected the Sebring Senior FFA Chapter as a twostar winner in the NationalF FA Chapter Award program from a pool of 660 candidates n ationwide. Chapter members Megan Stein and Brittany Palmerton,a long with Advisor Gary Lee, attended the 85th National FFA Convention Oct. 24-27 i n Indianapolis to receive this honor. T here were 29 chapters, out of more than 300 in the state association,that received this honor. The Sebring delegation alsoi ncluded Taylor Brown from the Avon Park Senior Chapter. Tammy Palmerton also accompanied the group a s a chaperone. The National FFA Chapter A ward program recognizes FFA chapters for developing and conducting a detailedp rogram of activities. Each activity provides opportunit ies for FFA members to excel in one of three areas: student,chaper or communi-t y development. Every year,FFA chapters are recognized as having e arned a onetwoor threestar rating on their applicat ion. The three-star rating is the highest level of accomplishment an FFA chapter may achieve. Additionally,Highlands C ounty had three of the 49 recipients from Florida receiving their American FFA degree Carlee Hill and L auren Welborn of Sebring and Charlie Brown from A von Park. Approximately 3,500 American FFA Degrees areh anded out each year at the National FFA Convention. T hat number represents less than half of one percent of all FFA members,making it oneo f the organizations highest honors. The National FFA O rganization provides leadership,personal growth and c areer success training through agricultural education to 540,379 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of7 ,489 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S,Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Sebring Senior FFA Chapter gets 2-star rating Special to the News-SunA VON PARK The Aktion Club of Highlands County organized on Oct. 30 the first Supervised Voting D ay at Ridge Area Arc for people with disabilities. The Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Office in the past has done similar early voting at sites such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities, according to Supervisor of Elections Joe Campbell. The Supervised Voting Day allows the elderly and people with disabilities more time to fill out their ballot and they can ask poll workers for assistance if needed. Campbells office provided the ballots and election officials for the Arc voting site. They had representatives from both parties Republican and Democrat. The Aktion Club hosted an Election Training Program on Oct. 24 to review the sample ballot with the new voters who have disabilities. During this training,the sample ballot was carefully and slowly read to each voter so they could decide ahead of time on who they wanted to vote for in the election. Several decided the amendments were too complex for them to comprehend so they did not vote on those issues. People with intellectual disabilities can make decisions and have the right to vote as long as a judge has not declared them incapacitated,Aktion Club advisor Cindy Marshall said. Just because a person has difficulty reading does not mean they cant make decisions. They just need some help in reading the ballot. Joe Campbell went beyond the call of duty to assist people with intellectual disabilities and we commend him and his staff for this. First time voter and Aktion Club president Ralph Meyers said,I felt good and happy to vote. I got a chance to voice my opinion. I really enjoyed it.He also added, I dlike to thank Joe Campbell and his staff for setting this up the way they did at Ridge Area Arc to give the clients a chance to vote. I was really nervous about voting but this was easy,voter and Aktion Club member Helena Spies said. They (the poll workers) made me feel comfortable. I got to take my time. Meyers and Spies were among the 21 new voters participating in this years election. There was also 15 Ridge Area Arc staff members who got a chance to cast their ballots early at the Supervised Voting Day at the agency. Since many individuals with disabilities were unable to vote,the Aktion Club hosted a Mock Election to allow the citizens who are n ot registered voters to cast their ballot. There were 30 people who participated in this election and their results were announced at the end of the day.They are waiting to see how their results compare to the nation on Nov. 6 when voters will head to the polls for the 2012 General Election. The Aktion Club started this push for people with disabilities in voting back a couple years ago when Florida Governor Rick Scott decided to make budget cuts that affected their services. The club organized a People With Disabilities Rally Day that allowed them to protest along U.S. 27 by holding signs and making their voice heard to the public. The governor later rescinded his decision. The Aktion Club really stepped up their efforts to recruit new voters in July of this year before the Primary Election deadline to register for voting. The club joined efforts with the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council to educate people with disabilities about voting. The club then hosted a Political Rally on Aug. 2 to invite local candidates to Ridge Area Arc to speak about their platforms. There were 15 candidates who toured Arc and spoke to the consumers and staff. Many members became better informed about the candidates. Like every voter, they closely watched their televisions to hear from national candidates in preparation to make their voices heard by voting. People with disabilities take opportunity to vote Just because a person has difficulty reading does not mean they cant make decisions. They just need some help in reading the ballot. Joe Campbell went beyond the call of duty to assist people with intellectual disabilities.CINDYMARSHALL Aktion Club advisor

He says it has its own set of d ifficultiesthat people who dont do it often arent always aware of. There are many more distractions than working in ano ffice,he says. Even people who do it on a regular b asis find it much harder to structure and discipline their time. H ilfer,who lives in Brooklyn and works in a h ospital in Manhattan, knows the distractions firsthand. He was working ath ome on Thursday to avoid the difficult commute because of the storms afterm ath. But he kept getting distracted by storm updates o n TV,projects he needed to get done around the house and his wife asking quest ions about what she should get from the supermarket. I had a whole list of things this morning I intended to do working from home, and I got about half of them done,he says. W ith some school districts cancelling classes for the w eek,children have become the biggest distraction for stranded employees whow ere working from home. Brooklyn resident Deanna Z ammit,a content director at media company Digiday, says shes grateful that herh ome and family were unscathed after Sandy. But she found herself overw helmed when she had to work from home and w atch her son Monday and Tuesday while her husband was away on a work t rip. ve had to juggle taking c are of a very energetic fiveyear old who only wants to jump on the couch and trying to get as much work done as possible under thes ituation,she says. On Wednesday,with the a dded pressure of Halloween festivities,she gave up and took the day off. But onT hursday,she drove three hours to her parents home i n Westhampton,N.Y. so that she could finally get some work done at home. I kind of threw my hands up in the air and said I have to go to the only place I k now that has free child care,and that is my parents h ouse,says Zammit,who acknowledges that she cant wait to get back to the o ffice. Drew Kerr,a public relat ions specialist,also was eager to return to work Wednesday morning after losing power at his home in Westchester,N.Y. onM onday. A big challenge was keepi ng his two teenagers occupied. To prevent the family from getting cabin fever,K err went to a deli to charge up everyones laptops. He s ays he even ate his corn beef sandwich and onion rings slowly,so the devicesc ould get as much power as possible. But the next morning,he d ecided hed had enough of working from home.

C M Y K By MIKE AKINS Ledger correspondentLAKELAND The Kathleen Red Devils did what they were expected to do as they routed Sebring 38-0 Friday night in a District 10-6Agame in front of 500 homecoming fans at Johnny Johnson Stadium. The Red Devils (63, 2-2) were looking for help from Bartow in order to get into a three-team playoff for second in the district behind Lake Gibson, but Winter Haven defeated the Yellow Jackets 28-26 to deny Kathleen a spot. After having trouble with special teams a week ago, Kathleen scored the only touchdown they would need three minutes into the game when Rovonta Johnson blocked a punt and returned it 30 yards for a score. He also rushed for a touchdown and finished with 44 yards on 10 carries. e made a conscious effort to establish a running game tonight, Red Devils coach Irving Strickland said.After last weeks tough loss, it was good to see a touchdown on special teams. Kathleen lost to both Winter Haven and Lake Gibson by a total of eight points. Senior quarterback Areyu Farrior threw two touchdown passes and led an efficient offense in a game that went to a running clock in the fourth quarter. After Johnsons second touchdown, on a seven-yard run at the 6:55 mark of the first quarter, Farrior connected with Kevin Wilson for a 32-yard score as the first quarter ended for a 21-0 lead. Giraldo Mata split the uprights with a 27-yard field goal at 7:32 of the second quarter and Farrior hit Damez Wright on a 12-yard scoring pass with 12 seconds remaining for a 31-0 lead at the half. Defensively, Kathleen allowed 122 yards of offense, 101 of which came from Blue Streak running back A.J. Gayle. I told the team that the defense is going to lead us to where we want to be, Strickland said. We saw that they were playing a 3-4 defense, and we wanted to take advantage of it by moving the defenders back with our strength. Both squads look to local grudge matches to finish out the season, with Kathleen hosting Lakeland Friday, Nov. 9, while Sebring (1-8, 0-4) travels to cross-county rival Avon Park. News-Sun Sports Editor Dan Hoehne contributed to this article. November means the 2012-13 huntinseason is in full swing. In this months column, I cover almost everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail, snipe and the second phase of mourning and white-winged dove season. The first thing you need to do is pick up a $ 17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Floridas many wildlife management areas (WMAs a $26.50 management area permit, but dont forget to study the brochure for the specific area you plan to hunt, because dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area. You can get these b rochures at tax collectorsoffices in close proximity to the WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/Hunting. You can buy your license and permits by calling 888-HUNTFLORIDAor going online at License.MyFWC.com. Have your credit card ready. You also can purchase them from tax collectors offices and most retail outlets that sell hunting and fishing supplies. The general gun season runs Nov. 3 Jan. 20 in Zone C; Dec. 1 Feb. 17 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 17 Jan. 6. In Zone D, it starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22) and lasts four days until Nov. 25. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 8 and runs through Feb. 17. Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler 5 inches or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer, and in some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular WMAbrochure before you hunt. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, theres also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Again, check the WM A brochure to be certain. The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called doe week, is Nov. 17-23 (Thanksgiving week zones Aand C, and it always runs Dec. 26 Jan. 1 (Christmas week in zones B and D. During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe, or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day like you can during archery season, and spotted fawns are never legal game. By the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season. If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for details. Fall turkey season in Zone Ais Nov. 17 Jan. 6. In zones B and C, it runs Dec. 1 Jan. 27 and Nov. 3 Dec. 30, respectively. And in Zone D, fall turkey season is Nov. 2225 and Dec. 8 Jan. 13, except for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game; you must have a turkey permit ($10 for residents; $125 for nonresidents) to hunt them.

All legal rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for taking By TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID The county rivalry got off to an early start Thursday night as the Lady Blue Streak soccer squad took to the pitch at Lake Placid. And though both teams f ace some early season challenges, the intensity and excitement never let up as they battled to a 3-3 tie. T he first half of the game saw lots of action from both s ides, with 5 of the 6 total g oals scored on the night came in the opening 40 minutes. Destiny McCartney was getting a lot of goal looks early on, but had to be taken out due to a knee injury sustained during a charge toward the net. ere hoping its just a bruise, said Sebring head coach Richie Birdsall. But I didnt want to risk putting her back in before it could be looked at. Sebring was first on the board 19 minutes into the game; as an indirect kick by Taryn OBannon lead to the goal. Less than three minutes later, however, Hannah Waller of Lake Placid scored on another indirect kick to even up the score. Waller struck again with seven minutes remaining in the first half, scoring another goal for the Dragons to put them into the lead. But the back-and-forth would continue as, in the final two minutes of the first half, Blue Streak Lacey Watson scored to even it up once again.

B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comNew York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg came under a lot of fire Friday, having announced that the worlds largest marathon would go on as scheduled. After hours of blistering r hetoric, he reversed track and did the right thing in canc elling it. Sports has often been a g reat unifier, bringing us together after a crisis. Atonic to take our collective minds off of things. That was never more true than in September of 2001 when the Yankees took the field and allowed the city to take a deep breath and exhale with the relief that normalcy would prevail. A nd not to say, in any way, that Superstorm Sandy is a greater tragedy than that which rocked that city, and the whole country, to its core 11 years ago. It is more that they are still in the midst of it. Yes, the clean up at the World Trade Center would take months, and while everyone was affected, the literal damage was localized. In Sandys case, the damage is widespread throughout the boroughs and the monthsl ong clean up to come has barely had a chance to begin. The sheer scale and manpower needed to oversee a 26-mile race, consisting of more than 40,000 participants, would pull city workers, police and officials away from current tasks at hand. And I think we would all much rather they be helping those in need of electricity, shelter and running water, than handing out cups of w ater to runners. Y es, those hopeful to take part in this great, massive annual event, have trained,p lanned, traveled and spent time and money to be on hand. And if the race were to be run, no ill-will should be ha rCancellation the right call See NYC, Page 3D

The second half of the game proved to show lesss coring action than the first, w ith both defenses tightening things up considerably. The ball was back and fourth between both ends, but the gridlock was finally bro-k en 66 minutes into the game w hen Blue Streak Heather Bloemsma made a close range kick from the front right oft he goal, across the front on an angle to the back left corner of the net. Tied up once again, the score remained 3-3 to finish the game. ere just now coming t ogether as a team, said Lake P lacid head coach John Merlo. Alot of the girls play o ther sports, so once we have m ore time to practice together I think well improve a lot. Our two captains really s tepped up with their goals. Being Sebrings third game i n four days, fatigue might have seemed to be a factor. But Birdsall didnt see it that way. The girls have been condit ioning and a lot of them p layed club ball, he said. I know theyre ready for it. I f elt that we pressed very well tonight, and played a lot in the o pposite end. With the soccer season just g etting underway, both teams s how a lot of promise for t he u pcoming games. T he Dragons continue with a home match Tuesday against Clewiston, with the Streaks p laying at Clewiston Monday and hosting Tenoroc Tuesday.

Snipe hunting in Florida r anks second in the nation in n umber of birds harvested e ach year, and the season a lways runs Nov. 1 Feb. 15 statewide. The second phase of the m ourning and white-winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 1025. S hooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. T he bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag limit i s 15. You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game b irds. The FWC even provides an online Dove HuntersH otline, which gives up-todate information on Floridas p ublic dove fields. The address is M yFWC.com/Dove, and it i s updated every Thursday t hroughout dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous weeks harvests and field conditions. Whether small-game hunti ng with friends and family or h unting solo, going after that monster buck, boar hog or big t om, November brings loads o f great hunting opportunities. Heres wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and a successful hunting season C ontinued from 1D Hunt season is upon us bored. But would they really want to be jogging past people flooded out of their homes, homes destroyed by hurricane winds, lives, livelihoods and families in peril? Bloombers initial intimation was right, we should show that we will move on, that any destruction we face will be overcome, collectively. Its just that there is still too much damage to overcome and moving on right now would seem more like moving past. Dan Hoehne is the News-Sun Sports Editor.

C M Y K By MATTSENDESKY Assoicated PressBOCARATON Gov. Rick Scott continued his push Monday for changes to how schools operate, saying education is the key to a robust economy. Speaking to the state Board of Education at its meeting in Boca Raton, Scott outlined his previously announced College and Career FIRST plan. He gave no new details but drew wide praise from the board. Scott said the plan could reduce burdensome regulations that cut into teaching time, expands school choice and increases accountability. He said schoolssuccess was key to the states overall wellbeing. If we have the right education system, he told those gathered at Boca Raton High School, then well have plenty of jobs in the state. Among the proposals in Scotts plan: measures to avoid spending cuts; efforts to reduce regulation; an expansion of charter schools; debit cards for teachers to purchase classroom supplies; and an end on the introduction of new standardized tests unless they support planned common core standards.

Lake Placid Police Department hasb ecome the example for area bike safety, Williams said. The event can be described as a cycling and skills clinic, according to Mulligan.T he Bike Rodeo is sponsored by a number of local businesses, organizations and individuals as well as by state departments. The state provided us with free safety helmets. We got about 500 helmets. We also have other safety items blinky lights, reflective bracelets and other things.W e get donations from all over town to put this event t ogether, Mulligan said. Throughout the day, LPPD officers and volunteers give s afety lessons and tips to children. The event gives c hildren the opportunity to ask questions and learn as well as allows less experie nced bikers a chance to better their skills. The volunteers spend a good amount of the day not only giving safety tips and instructions, but they also fix up bikes. They make small repairs and pretty much do anything they can to help out, Mulligan said. Following the safety instructions and clinic, the attendees enjoyed free food provided by Beef O Bradys and waited for their chance to win a free bicycle. Each year we give out two bikes, one for a boy and one for a girl, at the end of the rodeo. It has always beena huge success, Mulligan said. Mia Davis and Toni Diaz were the winners of this years bike giveaways and nearly 300 attendees were present at the Bike Rodeo.

C M Y K By TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondent SEBRING The Sebring boys played their first match of the season at home on Monday against the visiting Tigers of Clewiston. And it was a hard-fought battle that ended in a 4-1 score in favor of Clewiston which actually had head coach Keith Bowyer optimistic. I always like playing Clewiston for the fist game of the season, he said afterw ard. Theyre a really physical team, and it lets me assess where our boys are at now Juan Sandoval got Clewiston on the board first, s even minutes into the game. But less than two minutes later Riley Watson of Sebring s cored on a penalty kick, tying up the game. Senior goalkeeper Ethan Smith made a leaping save in the top left of the goal 12 minutes into the game, beginn ing a busy night for the three-year starter. Watson nearly scored again on an indirect kick, but it sailed just over the crossbar less than three minutes later. Luckily for the Streaks, Clewistons Casey Crawford also misfired on a penalty kick in the waning momentso f the first half to leave the score tied at 1-1. Smith had a series of close range saves early on in thes econd half, batting back several shot attempts. S oon after the flurry, however, Clewiston was still able t o score on a highlight reel bicycle kick at the 52-minute m ark of the match to get the Tigers into the lead. Near the 65-minute mark, a breakaway by Brian Dixon nearly lead to a goal for the Streaks, but it wouldnt come to be. Clewiston then scored on a penalty kick with eight minutes remaining to widen the lead at 3-1. As time grew short with the now two-goal deficit, Sebring stepped up the intensity and got more aggressive offensively.. But Clewiston got on the attack once more, scoring the final goal of the night in the last three minutes of the game, for the final 4-1 margin. Last year we lost 3-0, so it was good to get on the SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, November 7, 2012 H aves and have notsA look at the disparity between the NBAs big and small markets PAGE5BN ASCAR This Week3B Courtesy photo R ed Devil diver Domonic Hutchins advanced from his first Regional competiton to qualify for the Class 1A State Finals. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIn postseason competition, each step along the path is an accomplishment. A nd yet, they each become that much tougher. Advancing from the District to Regional in Swimming and Diving, Highlands County had quite the head count move along. At their respective Regional meets, however, the qualifying places grew smaller while the competition got much greater. And when the ripples within the water had calmed, two area divers were able to continue on the path to the State meet in Orlando. S ebrings Byron Cobb and Avon P arks Domonic Hutchins both qualified for the ultimate meet. Cobb placed sixth at the Region 32Ameet in Dunedin by scoring 336.55, while Hutchins scored a 317.6 to take eighth at the Region 2-1Ameet in Fort Pierce to advance. From District to Regional, the top eight swimmers in each event move on, but from Regional to State, only the top four are assured of qualifying.

By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Offensive numbers to savor were everywhere for the Miami Heat on Monday night. They thanked an upgraded defensive effort for that. LeBron James had 23 points and 11 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 22 points and the Heat beat the Phoenix Suns 124-99 on Monday night. Chris Bosh finished with 18 points, Ray Allen had 15 and Mario Chalmers finished with his second 11assist, one-turnover game of the young season for Miami (3-1 aging 111.8 points in the early going. s all geared to our defense, James said. When we defend, we can do whatever we want offensively Which is why, when he took his first look at the stat sheet, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra quickly focused on two numbers Phoenix shooting 39.8 percent, and Miami holding a 49-38 rebounding edge. After struggling in those areas over the first three games, Spoelstra demanded change, and his team listened. Ill take those two things, Spoelstra said. The Heat had eight different players make at least one 3-pointer, a franchise record according to STATS LLC. Shannon Brown led Phoenix with 18 points off the bench. Luis Scola had 15 points, Goran Dragic finished with 13 points and nine assists, and Marcin Gortat scored 12 for the Suns (1-3 For us, it didnt go too well, the SunsJared Dudley said. For them, it went well. Allen became the 24th player in NBAhistory to eclipse the 23,000-point mark when he made a free throw with 1:01 left in the third quarter. s not that it means a big deal, Allen said of reaching another milestone. s a sign, a seal, a verification of everything Ive done in my career The outcome was hardly a lock midway through the third. Phoenix even though the Suns were being handled on the glass and in the paint was within nine early in the period after a basket by Gortat, and Scola connected on a drive with 6:34 left in the third to get the Suns within 75-65. Thats where Miami decided enough was enough, with a 23-6 run that decided everything. Wade set up James and Chalmers for 3-pointers that came 24 seconds apart, and the Heat were well on their way. Chalmers, Shane Battier and James who had 10 points in the spurt made s later in the run, which was capped by Allen making a pair of free throws, the second of those being point Heat roll past Suns, 124-99 MCTpho to Ray Allen became the 24th NBA player to score more than 23,000 career points in Miamis win Monday. See HEAT, Page 4B Soccer Streaks optimistic in loss See SEBRING, Page 4B By BRENTKALLESTAD Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Although Jimbo Fisher is 27-9 since taking the reins at Florida State, he still hasnt won after a bye week. The eighth-ranked Seminoles (8-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) are 0-2 following a layoff in Fishers first two seasons. Theyre aiming to snap that bit of i gnominy Thursday night at Virginia Tech, which is in danger of its first losing season in more than two decades. Last year the Seminoles were upset 3 5-30 at Wake Forest despite having two weeks to get ready for that game. I n 2010 they were defeated at North Carolina State after a 12-day rest and t hen came home and were beat again by North Carolina. I n each case, the Seminoles were favorites to win and theyre a two touchdown favorite over the Holies (45, 2-3). e cant control how they play Fisher said. All we can control is how we play and how we prepare mentally to go in there. Virginia Tech has won just twice since Sept. 8 and outscored 68-29 the last two weeks in losses at Clemson and Miami. Their lone wins the past two months were over Bowling Green and Duke. But the Hokies seem to have plenty of confidence at home where theyre 4-1 this year and have always been hard to beat. They whipped the Seminoles 40-21 the last time the two played in Blacksburg, Va. In 2007. ell be a good fresh team, Fisher said. team thats mentally prepared and ready to play Seminoles look for win By MARK LONG Associated PressJACKSONVILLE With their team getting blown out again at home, Jacksonville Jaguars fans started cheering for the referee Sunday against Detroit. Yep, the ref. Every time Gene Steratore announced that Lions offensive tackle Riley Reiff had reported as an eligible receiver, fans roared with enthusiasm. Sure, they were mocking Steratores repetitive and seemingly endless updates, but its hard to blame fans for glomming a laugh after watching Jacksonville struggle this season. The Jaguars (1-7 at EverBank Field and have been outscored 126-34 by Houston, Cincinnati, Chicago and Detroit. The latest debacle was a 31-14 loss in which Jacksonville trailed 14-0 before getting a first down and was behind 24-0 midway through the fourth quarter. The Jaguars get a chance for a better home performance Thursday against Indianapolis (5-3 The NFLs worst record, the leagues worst offense, all those lopsided losses and the five-game losing streak are not even close to what coach Mike Mularkey envisioned when he took the job in January. Im disappointed that we are where were at, Mularkey said Monday. I know the players are. I certainly know the fans are. I just want them to know how they feel, we feel the same way. Everybody in that locker room feels the same way. Were mad, too, very disappointed were in this position. But we have to get over that emotion and get ready for this next game and these next eight games and know that we are going to battle to try to get this thing right. Jacksonville, which has won three in a row against the Colts, needs a victory to avoid the worst start in franchise history. Jaguars after latest home loss: ere mad, too

C M Y K No. 23,001 of his career. Miami had 33 assists on 47 baskets, and even the Suns were impressed by that. I thought that was probably the most unselfish team Ive ever played against since Ive been in the NBA, Dudley said. It was drive, kick, swing, penetrate, flare, and they were hitting everyone. Even when someone had a good shot they would make an extra pass for someone to have an even better shot. Chalmers had no more than eight assists in any regular-season game last season, and no more than nine in any playoff game. Entering the season, he had only three double-digit assist games for his career. Hes got five now. It starts with the point guard, James said. Rio got everybody involved, got his assist total up tonight and we just tried to make shots for him. Miami raced to a quick 10-2 lead, setting the tone. The Heat have reached 119 points in all three of their home games the first time theyve done that since James, Wade and Bosh teamed up to play in Miami over the summer of 2010. They didnt have to play big minutes to get there, however: No Miami starter played more than 30 minutes against the Suns. Through three quarters, Wade, James and Bosh combined to shoot 26 for 39. The Suns, as a team, were 26 for 68 at that point and needed a shot by Shannon Brown from near midcourt as the third-period buzzer expired just to match the field-goal total by Miamis Big Three. The lead reached as many as 30 in the fourth. They worry about whats happening with their team, not with whats happening with individual stats, Suns coach Alvin Gentry said. That in itself makes them great because they are virtually impossible to guard. We get in rotation against them they always try to find the open guy and like I said, adding Ray Allen to the mix didnt hurt at all. NOTES: James said after the game he will vote for President Barack Obama. James is a registered voter in Ohio, a key battleground state. The reigning NBA MVPdid not participate in any rallies during Obamas campaign stops in South Florida, though he believes the presidents camp is aware of his support. Its a very important time for everyone. Everyone talks about having the right to vote. Dont talk about it. Go out and do it and let your voice be heard, James sai d. ... The game was played on the 24th anniversary of Miamis first NBAgame, a 111-91 home loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. ... Allen has 62 points on 33 fieldgoal attempts with the Heat. ... Suns reserve center and former Miami player Jermaine ONeal was not with Phoenix because of a family matter. ... Heat G Norris Cole banked one in from midcourt to end the first quarter, giving Miami a 34-25 lead. ... Heat G James Jones appeared in his 500th NBAgame. ... Former Heat forward Michael Beasley scored seven points in 30 minutes for Phoenix.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, November 7, 2012Page 5B 2012 NBA SEASON PREVIEWAnthony Davis with the New Orleans Hornets:Blocking shots was his calling card at Kentucky, but hes a whole lot more. He played guard until experiencing a sudden 7inch growth spurt in high school. That means he handles, passes and makes jump shots with a skill not typically associated with big men. Damian Lillard with the Portland Trail Blazers:Ascoring point guard from Weber State, Lillard blew up the Las Vegas Summer League. Thats not always a sure indicator of success, but Lillard will define hard-to-guard. He has everything an elite point needs: a speedy handle, an eye for creative passes and a reliable scoring touch. Bradley Beal with the Washington Wizards:If you were teaching your kid how to shoot, youd simply say, Watch Beal. He has a smooth, mechanically ideal stroke, which means hell make big shots when tightly guarded and off the dribble. Hes also mature in a way that belies him being a rookie. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with the Charlotte Bobcats:Hell have immediate impact as a takeaway defender, and the Bobcats (last in the NBAin scoring last season) sure need the easy transition baskets resulting from those steals. The question is how well hell fix a flawed jump shot. Harrison Barnes with the Golden State Warriors:He fell short of all that was expected of him at North Carolina as the countrys top recruit. But hes still an elite jump-shooter, playing with a low-post scorer (David Lee) and a point guard with a wide skill set (Stephen Curry Hes well situated for success.BYRICKBONNELLThe Charlotte Observerhen the Miami Heat added both LeBron James and Chris Bosh, setting up a top-heavy roster that won the 2011-12 title, it sent a message to the rest of the NBA: Big-market teams buy talent. Small-market teams grow talent. The divergence has never been stronger in a league that invented the salary cap and recently i ncreased its revenue-sharing. H ard as the NBAhas tried to preserve parity, its difficult to look at the Lakers and K nicks, versus the Bobcats and Kings, and not see different species. The Lakers, arguably favorites to win the title this season, have a core of six players with nine or more seasons of experience. Only one of them Kobe Bryant started w ith the Lakers. T he Knicks have a core of four players, all w ith nine or more seasons of experience, and none of them started out with New York. Compare that to the Charlotte Bobcats and Sacramento Kings, definitive small-market teams: Each franchise is building around four lottery picks with three or fewer NBAseasons of experience. In Charlotte, its figuring out whether Gerald Henderson and Kemba Walker are worth big second-contract investments. For the Kings, its the same with T yreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins. No matter what the NBAdoes collectively to encourage competitive balance, the diverg ence between big market and small market is inevitable. The Lakers recently signed a T Vdeal that, by itself, dwarfs total revenue f or perhaps half the leagues teams. That makes it easy to justify paying luxury tax, no matter how onerous those tax penalties a ppear. C ommissioner David Stern doesnt want to preside over a league that mimics baseball, where theres a huge gap between the Yankees and the Pirates. But the differences team-to-team in NBArevenue means the leagues smaller markets must be more p atient and better drafters. The big-market t eams can afford to buy talent and trend older w ith their rosters, because a Jason Kidd or an Antawn Jamison always will sign on at the tail of his career to chase a title. Thats what makes Oklahoma City such an impressive small-market franchise. Theyve drafted well, traded wisely and built a roster that beats the system. But that requires the acumen and luck to draft Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, and that isnt going to happen frequently.R OBERTDUYOS/SUN SENTINEL/MCTThe Oklahoma City Thunders Kevin Durant (35s LeBron James (6 the 2012 NBAFinals at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami in June. Big-market teams such as the Heat tend to attact older free agents in search of an NBAtitle.Dwight Howard with the L akers:Howard was determined t o escape Orlando without losing his Larry Bird rights (which allow h im to sign for the most money), h ence the four-team trade between t he Magic, Lakers, 76ers and N uggets. Kobe Bryant has made i t c lear the Lakers are still his team, s o Howard needs to fit in, r ebounding and blocking shots. H oward is used to being stroked, s o it will be interesting to gauge w hether hes willing to defer to a v eteran-rich group. J oe Johnson with the B rooklyn Nets:The contract J ohnson got from the Atlanta Hawks made him overpaid, but that seemingly isnt an issue with the Nets, where every starterm akes eight figures annually. Johnson has never dominated theb all, and thats a good thing on a t eam where everyone else must defer to scoring point guard Deron Williams. Steve Nash with the Lakers:A former league MVP, N ash is used to being the best player wherever he has played. This will be different, as the point guard playing alongside Bryant, Howard and Pau Gasol. But Nash never has appeared to have a big ego and the only thing his career resume lacks is a championship. Hell adapt, finding scoring opportunities for teammates and hitting big shots. He might be the leagues most underrated jump-shooter. Chris Kaman with the Dallas Mavericks:The Mavs have traditionally skewed toward defense with their centers (Tyson Chandler and Brendan Haywood) as a complement to scoring power forward Dirk Nowitzki. Kaman isa multifaceted scorer, but hell need to hug the low post in Dallas with Nowitzki more of a high-pos t jump-shooter. Andre Iguodala with the Denver Nuggets:Hes past the point where hes a franchise-type player, but hes still being paid like one. Iguodala now affects the game primarily as a defender, and the Nuggets need that. Hes also a great teammate, subjugating himself for the greater good, and Denver coach George Karl values those guys.HARRYE.

The New Orleans Hornets: Regrouping after losing Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Hornets look to build a future around rookie Anthony Davis and shooting guard Eric Gordon. The Orlando Magic: Dwightmare is over and Van Gundy is out as coach. Theyre starting from scratch, even more so than when Shaquille ONeal left them years ago. The Phoenix Suns: Its been eight seasons since the Suns didnt have Nash to run the show. Is rookie Kendall Marshall up to taking over? The Washington Wizards: They remade their locker room with high-character guys such as Emeka Okafor and rookie Beal. Its overdue for John Wall to realize his potential. RICHARD W.

C M Y K By MICHELE KAYAL Associated PressIts that time of year a gain,when retailers deck their halls,radio stations r elentlessly jingle and cookbooks go forth and multiply. T he dawn of the holiday season also marks an o nslaught from the publishing world a rush of food books that begins in August and refuses to slow down until every family in America has gifted (and perhaps regifted) at least a dozen. Or maybe it just feels that way. The upshot of all this is that there truly is a food book for everyone on your shopping list. Should you care to go that route,weve s ussed out some of the best to help streamline at least t hat leg of your shopping trip.For cookbook geeksFancy a sunderland pudd ing? Ever wonder how to dress a calfs head? P ublisher Andrews McMeel has teamed up with The A merican Antiquarian Society to publish reproductions of 100 cookbooks documenting the early American cooking experience. American Cookery (Andrews McMeel,$22.99) by Amelia Simmons was originally published in 1796 and is believed to be the first cookbook to document American culinary techniques. It offers a window into those days with recipes for items such as spruce beer and tongue pie set beside page images from the original cookbook. Also part of the series is Americas first Jewish cookbook,Jewish Cookery Book:On Principles of Economy(Andrews McMeel,$28.99) by EstherL evy. It originally was publ ished in 1871 and includes r ecipes for fish balls and f rimsel (noodle r ecipes,menu suggestions a nd household management t ips aimed to help European i mmigrants adapt to their new country while maintaini ng their religious heritage. B oth volumes are perfect f or the armchair anthropologist in your life.For regular geeksDoes your loved one stand over a pot of boiling water with a thermometer? Wonder why salt makes steak juicy? Muse out loud about why russets make fluffier mashed potatoes than red bliss? We got it covered. The Science of Good Cooking(Americas Test Kitchen,$40) by the folks behind Cooks Illustrated magazine doesnt just offer recipes engineered for perfection,it also covers 50 basic concepts explaining why the recipes work. Useful sidebars showcase tips and techniques use a skillet,not a wok to stir-fry and charts that check your measurements (a cup of all-purpose flour should weigh 5 ounces) make it a handy reference guide. Modernist Cuisine at Home(The Cooking Lab, $140) is even sexier. The laboratory that last year produced Modernist Cuisine,a six-volume encyclopedia of molecular gastronomy by Nathan Myhrvold,has turned its blow torches and sous vide machines on homec ooking. Its a monstrously fun and shockingly practical cookbook that truly lets you get your geek on in the kitchen. B ecause who knew that a touch of citric acid makes the ultimate grilled cheese?O r that scrambled eggs can be dispensed from a whipping canister and that bakings oda helps caramelize vegetables?For nostalgia houndsA mericans have been hungry for nostalgia,and publishers are happy to feed them. Classic Cookbooks:501 ClassicR ecipes(Rizzoli International Publications, $ 50) boils down the classic, most iconic cookbooks to 501 recipes,drawing fromb ooks that span Fannie Farmers 1896 The Boston C ooking School Cook Book to Thomas Kellers 1999 The French LaundryC ookbook. Sneaking in between are recipes such as sole meun iere from Jacques Pepins La Technique,Bengal red l entils from Julie Sahnis Classic Indian Vegetarian and Grain Cooking,and banana bread from Mark Bittmans How to CookE verything.Essays about each book and its importance make this an excellent gift for the person who loves cookbooks even more than cooking. There also is the incredib ly charming Handwritten Recipes(Perigee,$20),a c ollection of found recipes by bookseller Michael Popek. Tucked between the pages of books brought into his store,Popek found thej ots and scribbles of recipes from unknown cooks. In Handwritten Recipes,he collects those notes and recipes,assembling a bookt hat is as much lovely artifact as cookbook.For the world travelerLove pho,but want to branch out? Charles Phan, the chef behind San Franciscos famed restaurant The Slanted Door,offers ietnamese Home Cooking(Ten Speed Press, $35),devoted to bringing tamarind,star anise,fish sauce and lemon grass to a kitchen near you. While many of the recipes are a little too chefy whos going to fillet their own fish for the simple fish soup? they go a long way to introducing the flavors and techniques of the cuisine. Bite-sized steamed rice cakes promise unusual party snacks,and lemon grass c hicken could be a feather in your toque. The Hakka Cookbook: C hinese Soul Food from Around the World ( University of California Press,$39.95) by Linda Lau Anusasananan captures thef lavors and stories of an often overlooked Chinese diaspora. Fried eggs and bitt er melon,tangy-sweet raw fish salad,and chicken s tuffed with preserved mustard greens offer new insights to even the savviest fan of Chinese food. Among the steady supply o f books on Latin food,three stand out. Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor (Hippocrene Books,$22.50) by Yvette MarquezSharpnack,VeronicaG onzalez-Smith and Evangelina Soza,preserves r ecipes spanning old world Mexican dishes like pork tamales to fusion creations like scallop and cucumber cocktail. Charming familys tories combined with richly colorful photos to make this a delightful invitation to cooking. In The Latin Road H ome(Lake Isle Press, $35),chef Jose Garces traces his culinary journey from his ancestral home of Ecuador through his different influences from Spain to Cuba, Mexico and Peru. Recipes for dishes like red snapper in tomato sauce and his grandmothers empanadas are woven with thoroughly readable narratives of his life and family,as well as useful information about the regions. Gran Cocina Latina:The Food of Latin America (W.W. Norton,$45) by Cuban-born chef Maricel Presilla offers a sweeping, sophisticated history of Latin food that illustrates the diversity of techniques, styles and flavors through 500 recipes. Recipes for foundational adobos and sofritos pave the way for c uitlacoche and jalapeno quesadillas,various pilafs, empanadas and tamales.For the celbrity chef junkieWho didnt love Kevin G illespie,the tattooed Top Chefcontestant who worshipped pig and always conc octed something homey? His book,Fire in my Belly ( Andrews McMeel,$40), brings home recipes like Brussels sprouts gratin with heavy cream and mustard and the one-pot hog supperwith fat back and cracklings. Light its not,but deli-c ious? Tickling the other end of the spectrum is Hero Food (Andrews McMeel,$35) by New York chef SeamusM ullen. More than 80 recipes such as caramelized cauliflower with anchovies and duck liver toasts with pickled raisins are part ofM ullens quest to manage his rheumatoid arthritis with 18 heroingredients like sweet peas,parsley,berries and squash. Despite his motiva-t ion,Mullens food tastes anything but medicinal. Fans of uber chef Thomas K eller will welcome Bouchon(Artisan Books, $50),featuring 150 recipesf rom humble shortbread and oatmeal raisin cookies to p istachio madeleines,pain au chocolat,raspberry macarons and other items fromh is fabled bakery.For the bakerLove dessert but hate to f uss?

We wait till the last minute to even begin to cook some-t hing for ourselves and our family. As a result we throw in t he dish towel before we even open the refrigerator door and head for the firstd rive-thru. This drains our pocketbooks and adds u nwanted pounds to our bodies. Do you know how much m oney you have been spending on food for your f amily? This means in the grocery store and eating out. Most of our income is spoken for by fixed pay-m ents:utility bills,phone bills,house payments,car p ayments and credit card payments. When it comes down to saving real moneyt he only place we have any wiggle room is on our food e xpenses. A little planning today will keep the money in the b ank instead of it slipping through your fingers as you pay your toll at the golden arches. Here is a simple way to m ake your menu plan: Keep a food calendar. All you have to do is pencil in what you had to eat every night. This will help youb uild your menus for a week and this is a great s tart. We are all creatures of habit,so use these fami-l y habits to help you build a routine for your meals. Lets use Sunday as an example:Do you go out to dinner or do you fix a bigf amily meal. If you cook; is it pot roast or chicken? Are you beginning to see a pattern to our meals? This is why I like to h ave a theme to each meal for every day of the week. It can either be the type of meat you are cooking as the main course or how you cook it; the grill,crock pot or casserole. Or you could have a country theme:Italian, Mexican,Chinese,Greek, American,or Plain ole southern country cookin. You can have some real fun with this and teach your children how to cook at the same time. Each n ight you could have a different Kid Chef. You would let your children help decide on the menu,make our groceryl ists and then help prepare the meal. T here is no better way to help a child learn about nutrition and real food.J ust teach your child to make a salad and watch t hem ask for seconds and offer them to all the family. Knowing what you are g oing to cook is half the battle. The other half is having the food in the h ouse so you can pull it out of the freezer or pantry a nd fix it. If you have to go to the store you might as well just pass those arches again. T his is why having a day set aside to plan menus, take inventory of your refrigerator as you clean it out and then go grocery shopping will help you enjoy cooking with yourf amily again. You will be surprised at h ow much fun it is to cook when your kitchen is clean and your sink is shining and you have food in the house.

Menu planning: A way to save real money Dear Abby:My boyfriend, Rick,is in prison and has been there for two years. He is the father of my 2-yearold son. I got pregnant three months into our relationship. Ten days after our son was born,Rick had to turn himself in for something that happened prior to my getting pregnant. He was sentenced to five years. He was supposed to serve only two years of it,but another charge caused that to change,and he wont be home for another year and a half. Im starting to get confused about our relationship because we barely have one anymore. We never get to see each other or talk. Every time I have a night out I meet different people, but I feel too guilty to continue with anything. My girlfriends all tell me I need to move on,that I dont deserve this and that Im the one in prison.But I really want the perfect family. What do you think I should do,Abby? Move on and be happy,or sit here playing the waiting game? Lost and Confused Dear Lost: Im glad you asked. Although Rick is the father of your little boy,you are not married to him. Therefore you are not morally obligated to put yourself into suspended animation until he is released from prison. If you really want the perfect family,you should do as your friends advise and move on,not because Rick made a mistake that got him into prison,but because there was a second offense that extended his sentence. It suggests a pattern. Dear Abby: A few weeks ago I was given the news that a close friend had committed suicide. I wish I could say its the first time I have been in this situation, but I cant. My issue is,I think suicide is more than a little selfish and I am unable to get beyond my anger. How do I support the family and friends of a loved one who has died by suicide when I cant get past the anger? Overcome in Glen Burnie,Md. Dear Overcome: Im sorry for the loss of your friend. While it is normal to feel angry about the suicide, you also need to find some compassion. Individuals who decide to end their lives do so for various reasons to stop overwhelming emotional pain,because of mental illness,to punish someone, because of an incurable illness,and sometimes out of impulse. Whatever your friends reason was,please do not take it out on the grieving family and friends. They are dealing with enough of their own mixed emotions right now. If you feel you cant control your emotions,stay away until you can. Dear Abby: My husband is in a nursing home for long-term care. The holidays will soon be here. How do I sign the holiday cards? Should I include my husbands name? My son is living with me. Do I include his name,too? Getting Ready in New England Dear Getting Ready: It is perfectly acceptable to include all three names on your holiday cards. (Send them out early,because the post office is sure to be especially busy in December.) Dear Abby: I was wondering what families should do with old pictures if someone in their family is transgender. Andy in Ohio Dear Andy: They should ask their transgendered relative what he or she would like done with the pictures and take their lead from the persons wishes.

Bush had a problem so important he sent a memo to White House staff askingt hem to take a pledge. His dog,Ranger, was packing on the pounds. WE AGREE NOT TO FEED RANGER. WE WILL NOT GIVE HIM BISCUITS. WE WILL NOT GIVE HIMF OOD OF ANY KIND,the pledge read. Bush ends his memo saying,I will, of course,report on Rangers fight against obesity. Right now he looks like a blimp,a nice friendly appealing blimp, but a blimp. That memo,along with countless anecdotes and more than 200 pictures are featured in Dallas author Jennifer Boswell Pickensnew book,Pets at the White House,which gives readers a glimpse of what life is like at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for pets,and what t hose pets have meant to their famous owners. I think they all would agree 100 percent that they got a lot of comfort from their pets,Pickens said. T he coffee-table book devotes a chapter to each administrations pets from Kennedy to Obama. And an introduction gives an overview of the animals that were parto f first families prior to 1961,which Pickens notes includes the array of pets cared for by Calvin Coolidge and his family,including Rebecca the raccoon, who walked on a leash. They became such known pet lovers that if you no longer wanted your pet you could just ship it to the White House and they were known to keep it, Pickens said. Photographs include first daughter Caroline Kennedy perched on her pony Macaroni on the White Houses South Lawn to the elder Bush walking across t he same lawn with brown-and-whitespringer spaniel Millie as her puppies trail behind them. She also gives readers an array of anecdotes about first pets. She writest hat Franklin D. Roosevelts Scottish terrier Fala traveled with him,attended galas with world leaders and even contributed to the war effort by giving up toys for a scrap rubber collection cam-p aign. When the Kennedys were given a dog by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev,the dog named Pushinka Russian for fluffy underwent tests at Walter Reed Army Medical Center to rule out everything from listening devices to bombs. One of Millies puppies,Spot,was a resident of the White House twice. After being born there,she went to live in Texas with George W. Bush and Laura Bush before returning when he was elected to the White House. Pet residents of White House focus of book

I think they are a great alternative to regular loaf breads or burger buns. I have been using a flatbread called Naan bread here at the hospital in our retail area. It has been cooked in a Tandoori oven and also has a hint of garlic brushed on it.W e are serving flatbreads here about twice a week n ow,and it usually is one of our vegetarian options. They have been a great successh ere with everyone. The people who prefer to l ive vegetarian enjoy them when we top them with balsamic glazed portobellom ushrooms and roasted onions,while I see the nonvegetarians take that same flatbread and add chicken breast to it and enjoy it thatw ay. I see flatbreads available at the supermarket where I shop for my home (yes,I do cook at home,too) and they have many different varietiest o choose from. I usually buy the whole grain packs a nd use them for both sandwiches and flatbread pizza. This week I have a recipe f or you that is flatbread with topped with artichokes and g oat cheese,which would be fine on its own as an appetizer or if itw ere topped with some chicken it would make for a great light entre. I would recomm end you try making this for your next dinner party as an appetizer and just cook it into small pieces andp lace them on a tray and past them around. U ntil next time ...

A latte can deliver a full serving of milks nine essential nutrients, including calcium, vitamin D and potassium. It also has eight grams of highquality protein in eight ounces even more than an egg. Being your own barista lets you customize your morning latte and save money. Here are some tips and latte recipes to help you get the day off to a great start. Tips for Steaming MilkAlways start with cold milk.If using a steam wand,experiment with the depth of the wand and how close it is to the edge of the milk container. Where you place the wand affects the milks texture.It takes practice to get an even texture,so be patient and enjoy your experiments. If you dont have a steam wand or milk frother,you can steam milk on the stove top.Put cold milk in a sauce pan making sure theres room for the foam.Put the stove burner on low heat. (If youre using an electric stove,heat the element before putting the pan on it.)Whisk the milk. Whisk faster as the milk heats.Dont let the milk boil.Once you have enough foam,remove the pan from heat.Create a Custom LatteYou can find flavored syrups at many grocery stores. Use a shot glass measuring cup marked with ounces to help you get just the right amount of syrup. You can also find great flavors in your spice cabinet. Try cinnamon,nutmeg,and even pumpkin pie spice in your latte. For a really decadent finish that wont add fat,top your latte with a little nonfat whipped topping and a sprinkle of cocoa powder.
