C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK Members o f the South Florida State Colleges District Board of T rustees took the first step Tuesday morning in their search for a college presidentt o replace retiring Dr. Norman Stephens. B oard chairperson Tami Cullens led the meeting, telling the trustees the final d ecision of whom to hire is up to them. However,a screening committee is being set into place whose task will be to whittled own the long list of original candidates toa short list of five or six,w hom the trustees will i nterview and form whomt hey will choose. The screening committee is big,comprised of 24 individuals. Developing the list of members took time ase very one of the college constituencies need to be involved. SFSC serves three counties:Highlands,DeSoto andH ardee. Therefore it was essential that at least two representatives from all counties be included. Additionally,college admission and faculty members, students,members of the business community and educators involved in secondary schools have also been invited to join. A special effort was made to ensure minorities and both sexes are represented. No one on the screening committee member list has yet been officially informed of the honor. In fact, Stephens said most of them may not even know they By SAMANTHA GHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comSEBRING A few l ocal residents who happened to be going about their normal routines got a surprise Tuesday morning as they checked an everyday chore off their list. Keep Highlands County B eautiful partnered with SP Recycling Southeast for t he year three of the annual Caught In The Act awards program. The program is in its first year in Highlands County and iso ff to a great start leading up to the America Recycles Day on Thursday,Nov. 15. Tuesday morning,Keep Highlands County Beautiful Chairman Mark Delaney and SP Chairman Graceann Henderson sur-p rised local recyclers while they were dropping their items off at collection points. At Max Long Recreation Complex,Kelley Larabee and her son,ConnorE lwell,were tossing in phone books and cardboard b oxes. A second recycler, Shirley Ness,joined in on the action just a short while after to discard her items. T he second location for the Caught Recycling campaign was the collection site behind Lakeshore Mall. There,spouses John a nd Kay Barber were unloading their recyclables i n a hurry. e use this location and the one up near Walmart,said Kay. ve always recycled.

Caught in the Act By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Monday was warm and breezy,a perfect day for the Veterans Day Parade and courthouse lawn ceremony. All three high school bands performed for the veterans and their families,and there were representatives from each high schools Junior ROTC units. The American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars were there,as was a large contingent of veterans from Tanglewood RV Park. The crowd was sparse for the parade,but more people turned out for the ceremony. Everyone,however,more than made up for small numbers with their warmth,support and respect. Highlands County students were at the core of the ceremony. Brett Bennett,cadet commander of the Avon Park High School Air Force JROTC,gave the invocation. Saying thanks to the men and women who have kept us free By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Highlands County commissioners Tuesday morning took a few minutes to clean up their current animal control ordinance in an effort to get prepared for this month's night meeting,when wide-ranging recommendations from an appointed animal control committee will be considered. There were three parts of the current measure that were amended,and most involved the changing of the nomenclature in the ordinance from animalsto more specifically dogs, cats and livestock. Attorney for the board of county commissioners Ross Macbeth explained that some of the problems came at a time when animal control workers were impounding a wide array of animals from marijuana grow house operations. As part of the changes,dogs and cats were eliminated from the livestock category,with livestock defined as horses,mules,cattle,sheep,goats and other grazing animals. Also included in the definition are ducks, turkeys geese and chickens. Under the new measure,livestock impounded would be kept for three County tweaks animal control rules Bigger issues to be tackled on Nov. 27 See VETERANS,page 6A S ee CAUGHT,page 6A See ANIMAL,page 7A News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Jo Adamson (leftaddell, both retired Navy chief petty officers, enjoy the parade while being a part of it.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Thursday is National Philanthropy Day,a special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to theg reat contributions that philanthropy and those people a ctive in the philanthropic community have made to our lives,our communities and our world. What makes philanthropy s o special is that no one is required to give of themselves. There are no national laws or regulations which mandate that you must vol-u nteer or get involved. Philanthropy is so powerful and inspiring precisely because it is voluntary that through the goodness of our hearts through our need to connect,through our desireto see a better world,we come together to improve the quality of life for all people, said Nick Buchholz,executive director of Cornerstone Hospice Foundation. The Cornerstone Hospice Foundation is entrusted to raise funds to assist in the care of patients and families facing life-limiting illnesses throughout seven central Florida counties,including Highlands and Hardee counties. Any funds raised in Highlands and Hardee counties are directed towards patient care in those counties. Kathleen Border, Cornerstone Hospice Foundation regional development director for the nonprofits Highlands,Hardee and Polk region,has spearheaded a number of recent fundraising activities throughout her region,such as Care for the Caregiver, Sweet Wars,Mad Hatter and other notable fundraising efforts. Over the past three years Cornerstone Hospice Foundation has been supporting an effort to bring a military recognition to veterans of all branches of the U.S. armed forces residing within our service care area via our Cornerstone Salutes! program. Through this effort conducted under VA guidelines,we present a commemo rative pin and a Certificate of Appreciation sometimes to an individual veteran,other times to dozens of veterans ata time residing at an assisted l iving facility,at a nursing home,sometimes at their own home. It is not necessary for these veterans to be under Hospice care. T o learn more how to make a gift or contribution to the F oundation,call Kathleen Border at 291-5571 or tollfree (800ywhere in Highlands or Hardee counties. R eaders are also invited to visit www.cornerstonehospice.org and www.SeriousIllness.org/Corn erstone/.

Thanksgiving is only eight days away,forg oodness sake. Scarier is the fact that Christmas is just are you ready for this? 41 days away,a nd 2013 comes only a week later. Where did 2012 go? With time flying like a plane from the b ombing range,we may forget to count our blessings this year,especially because s o many of us have fewer blessings to count. The fact is,however,there is much for w hich we should be grateful. While our nation faces challenges in a troubled w orld,we are still a strong and resilient people; creative and energetic. The NewsSun has confidence we are at the beginning of a healthier future,not in our last days of glory. Take the three high school bands which p layed together at the Veterans Day Service Monday.We can be grateful we have so many wonderful young peoplew ho work hard at making a beautiful sound,and who can come together and perform as one unit without anyr ehearsal,by the way. We can be grateful for all the volunteers i n our community hundreds of them make organizations like Habitat for Humanity or the Humane Society possiblea nd provide comfort at both local hospitals. These generous people are our scout l eaders,classroom helpers and student mentors. They make events like Run to the Heartland,or Springtime on the Mall,or the Caladium Festival successful,not to mention Toys for Tots,Relay for Life and the Alzheimers walk. We can be grateful for this nations e ntrepreneurs who are busy inventing the next big breakthrough or building the businesses that will create jobs in the future. We can be grateful that our soldiers, sailors and marines have begun to comeh ome. We can be grateful we live in one of the few countries that protects freedom ofs peech. In Thailand,for example,you can be thrown in jail if you insult the king, even if the king never knows he was insult-e d. Here we can call the president anything we wish,whenever we want. S peaking of free speech,we can be grateful well be free of political ads in 2013. S o,while time flicks by with the speed of a rattlesnaks tongue dont let T hanksgiving rush right you by. Now is the time to remember what is good and strong about the American people,and keep it in mind. While time flies there is much to be grateful for Is it just us,or has 2012 passed quicker than a mayflys life span? Wasnt Easter just two weeks ago,and Memorial Day the week after that? Or was that the 4th of July? Its no secret that I have a soft spot in my heart for our veterans.M y grandfather, dad and brother p roudly served in the U.S. Army. My dads biologi-c al father served in the U.S. Navy a nd I have uncles who served in the U.S. Navy. I alsoh ave cousins who served in the U.S. Air Force and cousins who s erved in the U.S. Marines. I believe the family has m ost of the branches covered. I have always been honored to write the stories of our veterans,and that has-n t changed. Recently,I was honored to meet Lance Corporal Josh McKee and share his story with our readers. That same weekend,I was also invited to attendt he American Legion Post 69 Wounded Soldier D inner. That was an honor all of its own and as I told Auxiliary President Mary Striecker and Vice President Linda Vargo,itw as almost like coming home. My grandparents were both members of that Legion and,after all,Avon Park is where my newspa-p er career started. I was often invited to the Post for various reasons,and I rarely turned one away. The Post has recently had a Legion Riders unit attached to it,and the motorcyclists had been out on a poker run. After great success and a lot of fun, the Riders returned to the Post for a yummy meal and a nice program. Post Commander Doug Deierlein said there are a couple of programs for Americas veterans that the Legion supports,but his favorite is Freedom Excursions. Started by a retired Army captain,Freedom Excursions primarily focuses on the wounded warriors. The goal of the first venture was to have a safe and comfortable day of fun on the water. That was Sept. 13,2008 and the maiden voyage had three generations of war included (Vietnam,Desert Storm andO peration Iraqi Freedom),all m embers of Amputee VA Support Team. D oug shared with his guests t hat the excursions can be fishing charters,dol-p hin encounters, whatever the veteran or families of the fallen c hoose to do. According to their webs ite, freedomexcursions.org, many of the participants have suffered physical wounds while others sufferp sychological or emotional wounds. Our recreational opportunities are tailored to the physical abilities of the wounded ... The organization actually has a simple mission: To provide variosu fun, recreational,outdoor e xcursions for those who know the stree of military life. To encourage4 and inspire them to heal mind, body and spirit. To aid int he reintegration process and provide an opportunity to re-establish relationships. To replace stress with smiles! W ith the 28-foot boat, Freedom Excursions lives up to the motto Healing heroes one wave at a time. As Doug said,These men and women who join the military sign a blank check. Our kids come home,some who graduated from high school just last year,without an arm or without a leg. Those are the ones who need our support. Go to freedomexcursions.org to learn more about this really neat program. And do me a favor,dont wait until Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Veterans Day to say Thanks to a veteran. Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor of the News-Sun. She can be reached at publisher@newssun.com/. Freedom Excursions deserves a look At Random R omona Washington P urpose needs to be addressedE ditor: The purpose of governm ent is to solve problems for its citizenry. Not to enshrine a particular ideolog y nor to advance the interests of a particular group. The preamble to the Constitution set it out most clearly. Establish justice,i nsure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense,and promote the general welfare. To bring the nation to near chaos to pro-t ect the financial position of a particular class is in conf lict with the purposes for which the nation was creat-e d. The purpose of the courts is to establish justice. Courts function to resolve disputes, to solve problems. To pro-v ide answers when there is conflict,to create remedies. Our laws have followed the English common law from our beginnings. Thee arliest of our court decision have cited the rulings of English courts as the basis for their decisions. In Florida,the common law of England as it existed on July 4,1776 has been adopted by statute,Fla. Stat 2.01,in Nov. 1829. The common law of England was a judge made law. For almost a thousand years,English judges would fashion a remedy for each wrong that was brought to their attention. Over the years these remedies became known as the common law writs,and covered the law like a tapestry of solutions for social problems,everything from land owners rights to resolving responsibility for battery and brawls. These decisions,unless contradicted by statute, remain the law of Florida as well as the bedrock of our federal system. The English judges,for a thousand years have been activist judges, and that tradition has continued in America,following English president,and modifying it as necessary to meet modern problems,to shape the law to deal with contemporary problems. If you find this surprising read Marberry vs. Madison,where the court asserted a power not found in statute to solve a problem. Or MacPherson vs.Buick Motor Co.,where the court modified the law of negligence to reach an appropriate solution. No law books? You can Google these decisions.Judicial activism is what judges do,it is why they sit on the courts,it is their original primary function. To view them otherwise,to see them merely asr ubber stamps of the current legislature is to misunderstand the meaning of the word,Justice. Randy Ludacer L ake PlacidHistory repeats itselfEditor: Studying history,we can see this title is true; faces and circumstances may change,the results are the same. As the saying goes, Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The kingdom of Israel divided into two factions in the north,Israel; in the south,Judah. In time,both factions were enslaved by other nations. Before that they were in a state of civil war with each other. We have seen that very thing here in America. In the history of Israel and Judah many lives were lost due to this war,so America suffered as well. The development of these dividing factions began to emerge long before the division of Israel. So also in this country; today we know them as parties,the two dominate ones Democrats and Republicans basically make the policy that drives this country. Secular political reasoning became the drive of the two factions,Israel and Judah. They had turned from their creator,God. They sought alliances with ungodly countries and political figures; turned to Egypt,the country that enslaved them. It was the comforts of Egypt that drew them and captured them into slavery,and drew them away from God. In America we have turned from our God,the God that led our founding fathers to establish this country and its constitution, to another god and another constitution,the god of money and power guided by the constitution of greed. In the place of statesmen,like our founding fathers who led the people in the grand experiment of a self-ruling constitutional republicanism, we are herded by greedy, selfish politicians into mob rule,known as democracy. The democratic mob wants things done now,you know, pass it,so we can know what is in it.Our founding fathers established Republicanism so that we could debate,hear all sides and make an informed decision. Time was used wisely, not hurried as it is in our fast food,shake nbake society of today. We need a revolution of revival in America; it begins within us individually,our constitution and our relationship with God are based upon our individual standing. Only then can we become moral citizens and choose moral statesman this country needs. John Adams said,Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.

During that7 2-hour period,county officials would attempt to get the animals back to their proper owners. Changes to the ordinance i n regards to dogs and cats were described by Macbeth as not substantial. One of the main differences is the impound time,w ith cats being kept for seven days and dogs for 10 days before they would be eligible f or disposal. County officials noted none of the deadlines were hard and fast,saying that the impound time would giveo wners a chance to reclaim their animals before the county took steps to find new places for them. Another overall change is t he move away from the print media and toward the Internet to make people aware of what animals currently are housed by thec ounty. The animals pictures and descriptions reportedly are posted on the county's a nimal control Internet web page with updates regularly posted through the county's Facebook presence. This ordinance was writt en at a time when the Internet was not as prevalent as it is today,Macbeth explained. More sweeping changes to a nimal control measures is expected at the commissions night meeting Nov. 27. That is when the recommendations from an appointed committeea ddressing feral animals and other concerns are slated to be addressed. Continued from page 1A Animal control rules tweaked ahead of bigger changes CO MMUNITYBR IEFS OBITUARIES S pecial to the News-SunT ALLAHASSEE A coalition of voter-protection organizations on Tuesday called for creation of an election reform task force int he wake of the problemplagued Florida general e lection. Gathering at press conferences held simultaneouslyi n Miami and Orlando were representatives of the L eague of Women Voters of Florida,AARP,National Congress of Black Women, L abor Council for Latin American Advancement, Florida Institute for Reform and Education,Florida Coalition on Black CivicP articipation,Lawyers Committee For Civic Rights Under Law,SantLa Haitian Neighborhood Center, South Florida Jobs withJ ustice,Florida Votes Count,Equality Florida and t he Hispanic Coalition. Outlining the many probl ems voters experienced during early voting and on Election Day,League of Women Voters of Florida President Deirdre Macnabs aid,A week ago today, Florida voters saw the culmination of a general election process that can be summarized in one word:U nacceptable. The group called for immediate and joint action by the Legislature and the governor:e are formally calling on the governor and the Legislature to follow the example of 2000 and appoint a multi-partisan task force chaired by trusted leaders. After the election fiasco in 2000,a bipartisan task force similar to the groups proposal was assembled by then-Governor Jeb Bush, with almost all of its recommendations implemented under Governors Bush and Charlie Crist. All that changed in 2011 after the Legislature passed HB 1355,which reduced early voting hours and instituted the other provisions that critics say led to this years problems. Tuesday,the groups reco mmended appointing a cross-section of knowledgeable stakeholders with expertise in elections,supported by adequate budgeta nd staff,to develop a blueprint for successful election r eform. The groups urged lawm akers to put Floridas shameful election disasters behind us. We ask that this task force begin its work quickly and deliver its finalr ecommendations to the 2013 Legislature at least two weeks before the 2013 session begins,allowing time for bills to be filed. T he groups cited a litany of problems: Cuts in early voting days and lack of standardization in early-voting hours across Floridas 67 counties. Insufficient election budgets,facilities and equipment throughout the state. Expanded use of provisional ballots and ill-conceived voter purges. A record-length ballot overloaded with complex, confusing amendments. Lines requiring waits of up to six or seven hours, inconveniencing many and excluding many others, including the elderly,disabled citizens,and voters who didnt have the time or stamina to wait in hourslong lines The four-day delay in knowing the results. oting is one of our most important rights,Cathy Kerns,representing the AARP said. Floridas elected officials have a responsibility to act to lighten the burdens and lower the barriers that many voters encountered on Election Day 2012. Those barriers were especially high for olderv oters. Lowering those barriers is important for all, r egardless of age or ability. U niversity of Florida P rofessor Michael C. H erron and Dartmouth College Professor Daniel A.S mith looked at the r acial/ethnic and partisan composition of early votersi n Florida,along with details about voters who were forced to wait in line o n Saturday night in MiamiDade and Palm Beach counties,and who ended up casting their ballots after midnight. They found that that minority voters,and in particular black voters,suffered disproportionately from this years unfair practices and that minority voting was suppressed. Latino voters in the State of Florida deeply cherish the right to vote,said Victor Sanchez from theL abor Council for Latin American Advancement. When faced with unparalleled voter suppression efforts,we have chosen to respond by condemning efforts to place obstacles and impede free and fair elections. The entire nation is again looking at the State of Florida,voter activist LaVon W.Bracy added. The voting process from Oct. 27-Nov. 6 was embarrassing and unacceptable. What Gov. Scott and the Florida Legislature did under the guise of protecting the vote is immoral. The total disregard for democracy must be challenged and changed. State voter groups call for election reforms MCT High voter turnout at many precincts in south Florida led to long lines and waits of several hours on Election Day last Tuesday.

C M Y K NEW YORK (AP) The puppeteer who performs as Elmo on Sesame Streetis taking a leave of absence from the iconic kidsshow in the wake of allegations that he had a relationship with a 16-year-old boy. Puppeteer Kevin Clash has denied the charges, which,according to Sesame Workshop,were first made in June by the accuser,who by then was 23. e took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action,Sesame Workshop said in a statement issued Monday. e met with the accuser twice and had repeated communications with him. We met with Kevin,who denied the accusation. The organization described the relationship as unrelated to the workplace.Its investigation found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated. But it said Clash exercised poor judgmentand was disciplined for violating company policy regarding Internet usage. It offered no details. I had a relationship with the accuser,Clash said in a statement of his own. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to characterize it as something other than what it was.

I find it as enjoyable to makechili for dinner asI do sitting down and eati ng that chili. Theresjust something about putting all those simple ingredients ofvegetables and spices together,in a combination you know your familywille njoy,and sitting down and eating it together. C hili is extremely easy to make and whether youre vegan,celiac,paleoo r an old-fashioned omnivore,you can make a pot o f chili tosuit your tastes and dietary needs. The only exception would besomeone unable to eat nightshade foods becausey ou really cant dochili without tomatoes. I have added many chili recipes to my cookbooks so I am not going tolisto ut all those separate recipes here,but with chili, o nce you getthe hang of it you can really just experiment and play and makei tyour own.Chili the basicsThere are some ingredients that are pretty standard in a pot of chili. To name a few:T omatoes Onions Garlic Chili powder Chili peppersB ell peppers Ground meat (pork or b eef) BeansMake it your ownI f youre vegetarian, simply omit the meat and add more veggies.Celery, carrots and even sweet potatoes are nice in a vege-t arianchili. You could also use one of those ground soy products if you wish. If youre paleo,omit the b eans. If you enjoy beans as part of your diet,toss in a variety. Chickpeas,black beans and kidney beans are a nice combo for a hearty chili.Some like it hotD epending on how much you like heat,its easy to m ake a chili toplease you. Add minced jalapeo,extra chili powder,cayenne ande venhot sauce. For a different flavor profile,try a dding coriander, cuminand saffron.ToppingsI love adding avocado to m y chili when I serve it. Other options wouldbe cheese,a lime wedge,sour cream or plain yogurt to help cool itoff. For a tail-g ate party,you may want to serve with corn chips. I like to serve chili with cornbread and a great big fresh green salad. How do you like your chili? Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of 'Body Clutter' and the Saving D inner series.

C M Y K By JOAN LOWY Associated PressW ASHINGTON Baby boomers started driving at a young age and became more mobile than any generation before or since. They practi-c ally invented the two-car family and escalated traffic congestion when women began commuting to work. Now,8,000 of them are turn-i ng 65 every day,and those retirements could once again reshape the nations transportation. How long those 74 million p eople born between 1946 and 1964 continue to work, whether they choose to livei n their suburban houses after their children leave home or whether they flock to cityn eighborhoods where they are less likely to need a car w ill have important ramifications for all Americans. If boomers stop commuti ng in large numbers,will rush hours ease? As age e rodes their driving skills, will there be a greater demand for more public transportation,new business models that cater to theh ome-bound or automated cars that drive themselves? I t was the boomers who made hisand herscars the norm when they startedb uilding families and helped spread a housing explosion to t he fringes of the nations suburbs. Traffic grew when boomer women started drivi ng to work like their husbands and fathers. With dualearner families came an outsourcing of the traditional style of life at home,leadingt o the emergence of daycare, the habit of eating out more often and the appearance of more and more cars and SUVs. T his generation has been the major driver of overall g rowth in travel in the United States and that has had at remendous impact over the past 40 years in how we have approached transportation planning,said Jana Lynott, co-author of a new report byt he AARP Public Policy Institute,an advocacy group for older Americans,on how boomers have affected travel in the U.S. T he report is an analysis of national surveys by the Federal Highway Administration of Americans travel patterns since 1977. The most recent survey,conducted in 2009,included over 300,000 people in 150,000 households. As a result of changes over the last four decades,driven in part by baby boomers,the number of vehicles in the U.S. has nearly tripled,the report said,and total miles traveled has grown at more than twice the rate of population growth. Since 1977,travel for household maintenance trips a category that includes doctorsappointments,grocery shopping,dry cleaning and the like has grown fivefold. The average household ate out once a week in 1977. By 2009,the average household was eating out or getting meals to take home four times a week. But what really caught transportation planners flatfooted was the soaring growth in traffic congestion in the 1980s after large numbers of women started commuting alone in their cars, said Nancy McGuckin,a travel behavior analyst and co-author of the AARP report. Highway engineers,who hadnt anticipated the consequences of the womens movement and dual-earner families,had just finished building the interstate highway system only to find it insufficient to meet the demands of the new commuters,she said. Now that boomers are beginning to move into a new p hase of life,their travel patterns and needs are expected t o change as well. People tend to travel the most between the ages of 45a nd 55,but taper off after that. With this immense slug o f the population sliding off their peak driving years,we would have to expect total travel might go down a bit, said Alan Pisarski,author oft he Transportation Research Boards comprehensive C ommuting in America reports on travel trends. If millions of baby b oomers start driving less,it would reduce gas tax reve nues,which is used to help states maintain highways, subsidize public transit and f und other transportation repairs and improvements. Federal gas tax revenue is already forecast to decline as mandatory auto fuel economyi mprovements kick in. There are signs boomers may already be slowing down. The rate of growth in travel in the U.S. began slow-i ng in 2006. Actual miles traveled dropped sharply duri ng the 2008 recession and now appear to have leveledo ff. But boomers could defy expectations again by remaining more mobile into their retirement years than pastg enerations. It doesnt matter whether they were in their 20s and 30s or approaching retirement,they are still travelingm ore than those who came before them or those who came after them,Lynott said of boomers. Most boomers live in the suburbs and are expected to remain in the homes where they raised their children even after they become empty nesters. The housing bust has also trapped many older boomers in large homes whose values have fallen, sometimes below the balance of their mortgages. A shift in the housing market with long-term implications may already be occurring as leading-edge boomers appear less interested in agerestricted communities than their parents,according to a recent report by the Urban Land Institute,a land-use think tank. They are not looking to retire early and are not seeking to isolate themselves among the elderly,the report said. Baby boomer Diane Spitaliere,a 58-year-old who recently retired after working 38 years at the Federal Aviation Administration,said the idea of moving to a retirement or assisted living community is just very unappealing to me. If there comes a point when she is no long able to live alone in her single-family home in Alexandria,Va., shell probably move close to family members in New York,she said. Stuart Peskoe,an engineering manager,said he and his wife also want to continue living in their single-family home in the Boston suburbs after they retire,even though their children are grown and l ive in other states. They dont want to leave their f riends and they want to keep the extra rooms for when the kids visit. B ut hes not sure how they would get around once they l ose their driving skills. T heres no nearby public transportation. T he Internet and delivery services may help the couple cut back their driving trips,s aid Peskoe,58. UPS and FedEx have this pretty good d eal going with Amazon and Netflix,and the local grocery store delivers onlineo rders,he said. More and more we dont have to leave the house if we dont want to. Automakers are banking on boomers being able to stretch out their driving years with the aid of safety techn ologies like adaptive cruise control,forward collision warning systems and blind-spot monitoring that are becoming more common in cars. Baby boomers have always been an active generat ion who want to go places, so we dont see them sittingi n porch rockers upon retirement,said Gloria Berquist, vice president of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers. They will w ant the freedom and mobilit y of a vehicle. Demographers have noted a n uptick in retirees moving to central cities where there l ess dependent on being able to drive. Because there are s o many boomers,if a signifi-c ant number move to central cities,it could drive up housing costs and force cities to make greater accommodations for the elderly,such as more benches at bus stops ora slowing of the timing of pedestrian crossing lights. C harles and Pamela Leonard,both 65,recently gave up their careers and traded their home in downt own Atlanta,where they could walk to restaurants, grocery stores and public transportation,for a small farm near Lexington,N.C., where they grow organic medicinal herbs. Pamela Leonard said the couple isnt sure what they will do when they are no longer able to drive except, I will not drive until my c hildren have to take the car away. That was an issue with my mother,and I hope Ive l earned from that.

The purpose of the field trip was to see a working beef cattle ranch. The students and faculty o riginate from various states throughout the U.S. and w ere hosted by three family members:Jimmy Wohl,Bob Mayworth and Casey Wohl,w ho is a graduate of the Rollins College environment al studies program. e got a great tour of the ranch and a chance to see all of the various projects going on relating to water conser-v ation and water storage as part of the restoration of the E verglades,said Lee Lines, professor of environmental studies and department chaira t Rollins College. Most importantly,this t rip was great for the students to get out and see a working cattle ranch andr ealize there is a great deal of habitat diversity on a ranch. A fter an overnight stay at the historic Kenilworth Hotel a nd breakfast at Dees Restaurant in downtown Sebring,the group spent four hours at the ranch,first with a overview of the ranch,itsh istory and the various programs that are being implemented. After the introduction, they toured the land to see t he projects,particularly the Florida Ranchlands Environmental Stewardship Project (FRESPin operation. Theres a tremendous learning opportunity for us to visit a ranch,and it improves the students understanding of what circums tances are for private property owners who want to do the right thing but are constrained by their need to run a business,said Barry Allen,professor of environmental studies at RollinsC ollege. e came to Rafter T Ranch to look at the FRESP, which is a project that is trying,and succeeding I think,i n improving the water regime for the Florida Everglades. Not only did the group learn about water conservation and management,theya lso learned about practices commonly used in the F lorida ranching business, such as prescribed burning, wildlife managment andr otational grazing. Some of these students a re from the suburbs and have never been to a farm and they really dont have a sense of where their food comes from,Lines said. Being able to see some of the projects provides a b etter understanding of the role ranching can provide in protecting the environmenta nd providing ecological services. T he experience was a winwin for both the environmental students and facultya nd the ranchers. What was interesting for me to see is how private p roperty owners can work with a number of different a gencies,both at the state and federal level,in a cooperative way that provides environmental benefits while also providing economici ncentives for property owners,Allen said. The students walked away with a better understanding of how cattle ranching in Florida works. e learned how providi ng incentives to ranchers rather than burden them with regulation yields better results,said Kevin George, a Rollins College seniorm ajoring in environmental studies. When you actually see the ranch and the work firsthand,it inspires us as students as it helps us constructt he situation in our minds better. T he Wohl family encourages other ranchers to reach out to groups for tours andi nformation as it helps ranchers share their story to a chieve a better understanding of the cattle industry by Americas future leaders. After hosting the Rollins College group,it really pro-v ides a rewarding feeling to know that we are sharing our s tory about the ranching community here in Florida, said Jimmy Wohl,presidento f Rafter T Ranch. It would be a wonderful g esture on the part of the ranching industry everywhere to host tours like thiss o we can get our story out that we are a viable,sustainable agricultural industry p roducing a nutritious product for the general public. T he tour of Sebring concluded with lunch at downtown Sebrings McLanes Garden Cafe. Jimmy Wohls work at R after T Ranch has garnered state and national media attention with several prestigious Environmental Stewardship Awards in 1994.

C M Y K By TAYLOR TUBBS N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING As the time ticked away the back and forth continued between the Blue Streaks and the LaBelle Cowboys on Monday night at Firemens Field. Neither side was able to produce a decisive victory,a s the score remained tied 1-1 at the finish. This isnt a district game, so I was happy with the tie, said Sebring head coach Keith Bowyer. ere conserving for tomorrow when it really counts against Winter Haven. Early on in the game the Sebring defense proved their strength by not allowing a single goal to be scored on them in the first half. Goal keeper Ethan Smith had many great saves throughout the night. The offense, meanwhile, was busy making numerous goal attempts. Riley Watson had a close shot on goal 19 minutes into the game, and less than two minutes later the Cowboy keeper covered another close scoring attempt by Sebring. Brian Dixons clear path to the goal was blocked momentarily by a LaBelle defender, but he was able to recover for a close range shot, but with his momentum slowed, he couldnt get quite enough zip on the attempt. Alater charge on goal by Dixon was another close attempt with eleven minutes left in the first half. Dixons attempts finally delivered when he scored the first goal of the night with five minutes to go before halftime. LaBelle got more aggressive in the second half and kept the ball in Streak territory. The Sebring defense allowed a shot by LaBelle in the top left corner of the goal, or a t90 shot in soccer terminology, to slip through with 30 minutes remaining in the game. It was a beautiful shot, said Bowyer. But we just cant allow those things to slip through. An abundance of corner kicks would lead to near misses for both of the teams as the match wore on.

Heading into Saturdays Region 2-3ACross Country meet in Lecanto, Sebrings T aylor Tubbs was seeded second. With the top 15 finishers from the meet qualifying for the State Final in Tallahassee, all Tubbs had to do was keep her usual pace and hold her spot. She did that and more in securing her place. Me seed time was at least one minute slower than the number one seed (Nikita Shah of Wiregrass Ranch), Tubbs said. It was a really tough course, but I ran it very well and finished just nine seconds behind her Nine second exactly, with her time of 18:41.40 to Shahs 18:32.40, while stayi ng less than three seconds ahead of Bellviews Catherine Blaney, who took third. Tubbs, however, will be going it alone as Sebrings lone representative, despite some strong runs amid the crowded and talented field. Hannah Schroeder came out aggressively, getting ahead of the pack in the early going. But she wouldnt be able to quite keep up the pace, despite posting a good time o f 21:19 on tough and hilly course, and took 32nd out of t he 114 runner field.

C M Y K B y JENNAFRYER Associated PressNASCAR had a real dilemma on its hands with this whole Jeff Gordon mess hanging over the season finale. History suggested Gordon could have been suspended from Sundays race at Homestead-Miami Speedway as punishment for intentionally wrecking Clint Bowyer at Phoenix, sparking a brawl in the garage. Thats the punishment Kyle Busch got a year ago for retaliating against Ron Hornaday Jr. in a Truck Series event at Texas. But was NASCAR seriously going to sit the four-time champion? From the season finale? Nope. He instead got a $100,000 fine from NASCAR, which also docked him 25 points in the championship standings. Maybe NASCAR should have also thanked him for triggering the fight and frenzied final sequence of events that had half the country talking about the series on Monday. Even without that, the penalty was the right call by NASCAR, which walks a fine line between sport and entertainment and has only itself to blame. Some viewed Sunday as a black eye for NASCAR, but others were celebrating it as one of the best races of the season. It wasnt lost on Kevin Harvick, who snapped a 44race losing streak with the victory. The sport was made on fights. We should have more fights, he said. Fights are what made NASCAR what it is. NASCAR heard the complaints from fans that drivers had become too corporate, the sport had strayed too far from its rough and tumble roots and scores were no longer settled at the track. The 2009 finale at Homestead was one of those throwback races, and the crowd roared as drivers used their cars to deliver oldschool justice. President Mike Helton said at the time: We didnt certainly intend to make it too sterile, but the drivers were afraid to be themselves, and thats not good. So NASCAR relaxed at the start of the next season, using a Boys, Have At It policy that allowed the drivers to police themselves. The boys tested NASCAR just four races in when Carl Edwards waited 153 laps for his crew to fix his car for the sole purpose of getting back on the track at Atlanta to wreck Brad Keselowski. Edwardshigh-speed contact sent Keselowskis car airborne, and there were immediate calls for Edwards to be suspended. But doing so would have been the immediate end of the policy, and Edwards instead got off with a mere three races of probation. The boys have been allowed to have at it ever since. There has been bumping and banging, and Tony Stewarts threats to wreck each and every driver who blocks him from now until the end of time. Theres an occasional flare-up, an intentional act or two, and NASCAR intervenes when needed. Then came last November at Texas, when Busch blatantly put Hornaday, a championship contender, into the wall under caution. Unlike Edwards, he absolutely deserved to be suspended. Where NASCAR erred was in insisting that Busch had been suspended solely for the Hornaday incident when he had been out of control most of last season and arrogantly behaving as if his talent made him untouchable. In fact, Hornaday had called for Busch to be suspended for that weekends Cup race, an option Busch seemed to dismiss in an interview after the accident. By suspending him the next morning, NASCAR senta message it was in charge and Busch better start behaving. Gordons decision to wreck Bowyer he says Bowyer deserved it for a seasons worth of misdeeds is more like the Edwards incident. Or perhaps more like a nother incident last season, when Brian Vickers promised retaliation against Matt Kenseth and then rode Kenseths back bumper until Kenseth turned into the wall. Vickers got no penalty. Gordon, however, seemed to have zero regard for others on the track. The wreck also collected Joey Logano and Aric Almirola, championship contender Keselowski had to dodge his way around it and the whole thing was a direct contributor to the last-lap wreck. NASCAR needed to take action against the crew chiefs, and did by fining Brian Pattie $25,000 for failing to maintain control of Bowyers crew and placing Alan Gustafson on probation through the end of the year because hes responsible for Gordons crew. With that, NASCAR was done with the matter. Theres no doubt that a unique set of circumstances combined with a championship battle on the line resulted in raw emotions coming into play, said NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton. We consider the penalties appropriate and those involved understand our decision and we expect them to abide by them. It was the appropriate response from NASCAR. Either the series is going to be about immediate paybacks and justice you know, the stuff thats got everybody talking and moves the meter or theres no such thing as Boys, Have At It anymore.

EJ Manuel is now a part of the conversation. Manuel led a 68-yard drive that resulted in a 28-22 lastminute win Thursday at Virginia Tech to keep the 10th-ranked SeminolesA tlantic Coast Conference c hampionship hopes alive. Thats what the really good players are able to do, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday. To do it after being hit, being knocked around, tough environment, everything going w rong, to be able to do that, that takes some special things. Manuel was sacked five times, had the wind knocked out of him twice but didnt flinch against Virginia Techs pressure. The Hokies had stopped the Seminoles running game cold before Manuel hit Rashad Greene with a 39yard touchdown pass with 40s econds to play. It was a dramatic finish to Manuels lone collegiate appearance in his home state. ou see a receiver make a catch and go down the field and score a touchdown, theres no more gratifying feeling for a quarterback, said the always understated Manuel. To do it in a place where nobody wanted you to win, it was cold, it was late in the game, we were beat d own. It says a lot for our confidence and moving forward in our season. And left the Seminoles in position to win their first ACC title in seven years and perhaps finish with their best record in a dozen seasons. Florida State (9-1, 6-1 ACC) can clinch the Atlantic Division and a berth in the Dec. 1 league championship game with a win at Maryland( 4-6, 2-4) on Saturday. Manuel is 22-5 as a starter at Florida State and has been at the helm with come-frombehind wins over Maryland in 2009, Clemson in 2010 and Notre Dame in last years Champs Sports Bowl the last time the Irish lost. But none of those were quite as dramatic or important for Florida State, which was on the verge of losing for the second time in a month toa double-digit underdog. The lone stain on the S eminole season is a 17-16 l oss at North Carolina State. Other memorable drives include: Heisman Trophy quarterback Charlie Wards lastminute, game-winning drive that lifted Florida State to its first national title in 1993 w ith an 18-16 Orange Bowl win over Nebraska. He also engineered memorable late comebacks at Clemson and Georgia Tech in 1992. Chris Weinkes big fourth quarter keyed a 46-29 win over Virginia Tech for the 1999 national title. Danny Kanell threw for 232 yards in the fourth quarter as the Seminoles scored 28 unanswered points in a3 1-31 tie against archrival Florida in 1994. And now Manuel appears to be on his way as the quarterback who brought Florida State back with what is shaping up as a Ward-like season. Manuel has completed 6 8.4 percent of his passes for 2,641 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions. Ward completed 69.5 percent of his passes in 1993 for 3,032 yards and 27 TDs and only four interceptions. And while Manuels heroi cs have appeared to save a season that started wi th national title aspirations, they blew a 16-point halftime lead in Raleigh, N.C., tumbling out of the top 10 briefly. Weinke and Ward both had N orth Carolina State at home in their national title seasons. r esponsibility to hit that shot, Lin said. It was a good shot for me, a quality shot and it didnt go in for me, unfortunately, in a crucial play of the game. R ockets interim coach K elvin Sampson likened the b ack-and-forth game to a fistfight, with the more experienced Heat delivering the final blow. Head coach Kevin McHale is on indefinite leave because of a family matter. They got the last punch in and Im disappointed that we lost, Sampson said. The Heat looked as though they might blow out Houston early when they opened the game with a 20-5 spurt. Miami started 8 for 12 from the field, while the Rockets missed nine of their first 11 shots. Miamis shooting eventually cooled off and Houston started finding scoring opportunities inside. James had just six points on 2-for-6 shooting and missed his only 3-point attempt in the first half and the Heat led only 56-52 at the break. James sank two 3s early in the third quarter to get h imself going. But Lin hit a 3-pointer a nd then threaded a nifty bounce pass to Parsons for af ast-break layup as the Rockets rallied again. Carlos Delfinos 3-pointer from the wing with 5:03 left in the third quarter gave Houston its first lead at 7069. T he Rockets continued to find holes in the middle of the Heats defense to keep Miami at bay. James scored 16 points in the third quarter, but rimmed out a 3-pointer just before the buzzer and Houston led 85-82. Marcus Morris sank two unlikely 3-pointers from the corner over James, and Houston seemed to be on its way to a big early-season win. But the Rocketsshooting touch left them just when they needed it most. Houston made a seasonhigh 12 3-pointers, but missed its final three attempts from long range. e made some good p lays toward the end of t h e game, James Harden said, but some of the shots didt fall. H arden shook off a slow start to score 22 points. Lin had only nine points and six assists. Notes: James scored in double figures for the 149th consecutive game for Miami, breaking a tie with Wade for the longest streak in franchise history. ... The Rockets were still uncertain when McHale would rejoin the team. Its a tough timef or his family, Sampson said. Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with him. ... Houston Texansg eneral manager Rick Smith and star receiver Andre Johnson, a Miami native, had a courtside seats next to prominent defense attorney Rusty Hardin, a regular at Rockets games. Houston running back Arian Foster sat behind them, and James ran over and greeted both players just before the tipoff. ...Shane Battier, who played for the Rockets from 2006-11, got a loud ovation when he was introduced in Miamis starting lineup. The Rockets played a tribute video after the first quarter and Battier acknowledged more applause with a wave.
