C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Connie Scobey, secretary for the School Board of Highlands County, is retiring this spring after more than 30 years working for the district. She is one of those indispensable people behind the scenes who not only makes things run smoothly, but adds humanity and passion to the process. For someone who is essential, Scobey is modest. She is very aware of being part a team. She also understands that at this point in her career she has become historical only Superintendent Wally Cox has served longer. Along the way, Scobey became such a wealth of knowledge about the districts past that the Sebring NEWS-SUN H ighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Wednesday-Thursday, November 21-22, 2012www.newssun.comVolume 93/Number 143 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 H ighLow 74 50C omplete Forecast PAGE 12A Partly sunny and beautiful F orecast Question: Will you miss Twinkies if they go away forever?

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands County Sheriffs Office would like to alert the public concerning recent reports of suspicious and possibly fraudulent activity. AHighlands County resident reported being contacted by phone by a male caller representing himself as working for Microsoft. The caller told the resident his computer was sending out personal information and said the resident needed to go to the website www.teamviewer.com and read the ID and password information to the caller.

C M Y K Historical Society calls her regularly. S he didnt start out in Highlands County, having grown up in a small town inr ural Illinois doing farm c hores. She lived in the same farm house where her fatherg rew up and attended the little church her great-grandfather built. Scobey arrived in Highlands County in 1978 w ith her first husband, who came to attend then South Florida Community College. They hadnt intended to stay,b ut the people were so f riendly, and it was so beautiful it really caught us up, she said. W ith a secretarial background and language arts skills, Scobey went to work for the school board at Fred Wild Elementary School as a m igrant aide in 1981. She tutored children in language arts. S he discovered education w asnt for her, however, and when she was offered an opportunity to work in the districts purchasing departm ent she jumped at it. That lead to an offer to work accounts payable in the finance department with the f inance director. In 1993, she was urged to apply for the position of school board secretary. She had to retake all the office skills tests, including typing and math. Cox, then director of finance and her boss, tutored her to prepare for the math. The tests were followed by an interview with the school board itself, which was held in the boards chambers. Scobey remembers having to sit at a small black table in the middle of the room. The questions came pow, pow, pow. That was an experience in itself, s he said, laughing at the memory. M ost people have no idea of what she does all day,i ncluding other office staff at the districts headquarters. All you do are the minutes and agenda, she said people have told her. The truth is very different. There a lot of details, Scobey explained. You have to be pretty organized and good with details and meeting deadlines. Youre involved with the entire system. You have to be able to read people. Her responsibilities include keeping tabs on school issues before the leg-i slature and keeping the board informed. She reviews the policy manual, monitors student discipline results,f orwarding them to board members. She deals with al ot of parents, communicates with school principals, com-p oses cover letters and deals with correspondence. She is one of the individuals leading the transfer from paper to electronic records, and worked on providing the school boards agenda and packet on the school boards website. There is now a lot of data online, she said. When Scobey began there were no computers. She worked with typewriters, carbon paper and White Out. Then came the computer revolution. At the start she had to learn DOS, then learn about personal computers and m any different software programs. eve come a long way. I ve learned an awful lot over the years, she said, l aughing again. In fact, Scobey is upbeat, energetic, and prone to laughter. She is proud of working her way up. S he witnessed many other changes. When Scobey first began as school board secretary, the districts print shop was where her office is now. Changes in the legislatures attitude toward educa-t ion sadden her. In the past, they paid more attention and a llowed local control. Now education is on the back b urner Scholarship Recognition is her greatest passion. S cobey organized the annual celebration of honor r oll students and their hard work for years. She remembers when her two daughtersw ere getting ready for college and a lack of money was a major obstacle. S oon shell be moving to Tennessee, where she and h er husband plan to indulge in all the interests for which they havent had time, like wood working, crafts and gardening. W hen shes not busy, she said shell be sitting in her rocker enjoying the view. It has been an adventure, Scobey said, speaking of her career. lot of my dreams have c ome true.

KERR A ssociated PressW ASHINGTON A Dora the Explorer guitar, dragster cars with small wheels and finger-fidget desktop magnets are amongt he toys that consumer advocates are warning about as the holiday buyings eason begins. In its annual Trouble in Toyland report, the U.S.P ublic Interest Research Group examined more than 2 00 toys on store shelves at major retailers and dollar stores and found about ad ozen that could be dangerous to children. T he Dora guitar was too loud, the group said Tuesday, and tested slightly above the limit that hearing experts recommend. Thed ragster car had small rubber traction bands on the w heels that could be a choking hazard, and a tootiny warning label. C ompared to previous years, lead and other toxins w ere less a concern, thanks to a 2008 product safety law that ushered in stricter l imits on metals and chemicals in toys. Instead, much of the focus was on small magnet toys and jewelry. PIRG cited government e stimates of 1,700 emergency room visits between 2009 and 2011 involving the ingestion of high-powered magnets. Most of the cases involved children between 4 and 12 years old. O lder children have accidentally ingested the balls while trying to mimic tongue piercings. The magnets, such as the ones in the popular Buckyball desktop toys, canc ling together if swallowed, pinch internal tissue and lead to serious injuries. This summer, the C onsumer Product Safety Commission sued New Y ork-based Maxfield and O berton, the maker of the B uckyball desktop toys, to stop their sale. The fingerplay toys are designed for adults, but CPSC said it wass eeing too many injuries involving children. M axfield has maintained the toys are for adults, mar-k eted to adults and carry clear warning labels but it announced last month that it would stop making the Buckyball series. CPSCi s considering a ban on similar magnet sets. P IRG found one toy that violated the new stricterl ead limits. It found no toys or jewelry that exceeded the voluntary industry limits for cadmium. Both metals can delay brain development in children, leading to learningd isabilities. PIRG also did not find p hthalates chemicals that are used to make plastic p roducts softer but can cause health problems above the federal standard in the toys it tested.

C M Y K According to lifesaver.com,which uses National Highway TrafficS afety Administration data, the night before T hanksgiving is unofficially the busiest bar night of the year. It also is the most trav-e led day of the year,with almost 90 percent of the trave l done by car. The day is particularly dangerous because in addition to drivers under the influence,many sober driverss peed while traveling distances,and many become t ired or sleepy. According to Drug Free Highlands,using informationc ollected by Mothers Against Drunk Driving,driving cond itions over the seasonal holidays Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year a re made even more dangerous because so many young and inexperienced drivers are on the roads. College and high school students are on vacation,many of they ounger people without close supervision. MADD reports t hat many accidents involve individuals between 15 and 20 years old,and that ona verage they have the highest blood levels among drivers u nder the influence. According to alcoholalert.com,in 2009 Florida was ranked third in the country for the number ofv ehicle fatalities with more than 2,500. Of that number 9 04 were alcohol related,or 35 percent of the total. Texas and California were one andt wo,respectively. Katie Box,with the sheri ffs office,told the NewsSun there have been 164 alcohol-related traffic ticketsi ssued in Highlands County since November 2011. There is good news. The n umber of fatalities due to alcohol or drug impairment is dropping. A ccording to the Childrens Trust for example, between 2005 and 2007 there were 10 alcohol related fatalities in Highlands County; between 2007 and 2009 therew ere four. With a rate of 4.3 d eaths per 100,000, Highlands ranked sixth safest of the 67 counties. P erhaps surprisingly, Miami-Dade County ranked a s the safest county,with 5.1 deaths per 100,000. Seminole,Collier,Lafayette a nd Broward counties respectively finished out the top five. H amilton County,ranked 6 7,or most the dangerous, with 27.1 deaths per 100,000. F amuanonline suggests s everal precautions when t raveling over the holiday weekend. Check your tire pressure and brakes before g etting on the road. Give y ourself plenty of travel time, s tay within the speed limit, wear your seat belt and if you do drink,assign a designated driver. T his is simply good sense. Especially as the counties s urrounding us are hazardous. Okeechobee ranks 58 out of 67 counties; DeSoto ranks 47; Hardee ranks 43; and Polk County ranks 22. T he News-Sun wishes everyone a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving. Be careful,count your b lessings and have fun.

On the same d ay that beautiful Samantha Alamo was c rowned Sebring High Schools Homecoming Queen,another young manw as showing there truly is hope for tomorrow in some o f our youth. Lucas Norman is an eighth-grade cross country runner from Wellston,Ohio who suffers with whatn ews reporters in the area call a mild form of cerebral p alsy. He was trying to run a 2-mile course but was having trouble. Fellow run-n er Colt Yinger from Nelsonville York finished t he race then went back to check on Lucas. Colt ran beside Lucas, e ncouraging him to finish the race,and was there to help Lucas when he fell c lose to the finish line. Instead of helping Lucas w alk away,Colt helped Lucas end the race and cross the finish line. After Colt received his medal,he walked back toL ucas and gave it to him. By the way,in case you didnt know,Samantha has Down syndrome and was voted queen by her peers Oct. 12. She was swarmed by her classmates on thef ield after the announcement was made. T here is also the story of Logan Thompson and his St. Clairsville (Ohio School teammate Michael Ferns,found onW SPN.go.com and WolverineNation. Two days before Logan was to appear in his first varsity football game the youngm an had to beat down an interior door to get to his dad who was laying unconscious after suffering a stroke. His 44-year-old dad never came home from the hospital. Logan went to school that day,sharing the details of his morning with only his coach and best friend, Brendan Ferns,who then shared it with his brother, Michael. Michael shared Logans story with the other members of the varsity football team. Together, with their coaches blessings,the teammates decided they had to do something. As the game against Richmond came to an end, MichiganW olverine recruit Michael Ferns broke past the line of scrimmage, running for the e nd zone. Just one yard shy of a touchdown,Ferns stepped out of bounds. The plan was in action. T he head coach sent Logan in to the running b ack position and told him what play to call. Stunned, the young man did as hisc oach instructed. Ferns asked Logan what t he play was and then led the way,blocking for Logan. Logan made the touchdown. The story in its entirety i s very moving and shows what not just one other y oung person,but a whole team of young people, were willing to do for at eammate. Not to mention what the adult coaches did t o help,and how the whole thing impacted those in the stands ... and at home.

Ardella Keyes SebringMore serious problem is how to restore common senseEditor: In this mornings paper,I read an editorial from the Miami Herald,saying the GOP lost the recent election because of a lack of Hispanic votes. I then thought,the Hispanics came here to get away from the dictatorial government of Fidel Castro. Why would they vote for the same type of individual,namely Obama? However,looking at the election as a whole,I have come to the conclusion that Obama was elected by a younger generation of people who are more interested in their electronic toys than what is going on in their country. Obama,to me,is a symptom of what is wrong with America. However,the country can survive an Obama but it is less likely to survive a bunch of lame brains,such as those that elected him President. Thus the countrys problem,a very serious one,is how to restore the common sense and good judgment of such an electorate. Dick Ford SebringYes, purpose does need to be addressed Editor: In reference to Purpose needs to be addressed,Nov. 14,2012,the Preamble to the constitution states,e the people of the United States,in order to form a more perfect union,establish justice,insure domestic tranquility,provide for the common defense,promote the general welfare,and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. The Constitution answers all 27 grievances in the Declaration of Independence,which were written to show the need to replace the English Monarchy the colonies were under at that time. The preamble summarizes the answers to the objections in the Declaration. Establish justice,does not uphold activist judges, indeed it restricts them to the written boundariesof the Constitution. They are not to make law,that is Congressjob; and all three branches have the duty to interpret the Constitution. Activist judges were part of the 27 complaints. Insure domestic tranquility,the government will uphold constitutional laws to give everyone the same opportunity to better themselves financially as well as pertaining to education. We can accomplish this by our own effort,which is through study and hard work to reach the goals we set for ourselves. Also to serve our God in the religion of the Bible,that is the JudeoChristian faith as our founding fathers understood religion to be. Provide for the common defense,this places responsibility on the government as well as the citizen. To the government to raise financing for a standing army and navy and to the citizen a duty to serve in those respected branches of military service. Promote the general welfare,government does this best by letting the people be free to pursue their own means of support,their own beliefs,and their own happiness as long as it does not infringe upon the rights of others as guaranteed them in the Constitution. Secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our prosperity,if we uphold the common law,and our elected officials do likewise,our liberties are secure. Common law does not come from any government it comes from God,the founding fathers wrote in the Declaration of Independence,laws of nature and natures God. Finally I address the reference to Marbury vs. Madison,Jefferson and Madison ignored the Supreme Courts ruling,as was their right. Larry J. Overfield Sebring Dont become a holiday statistic Wve all heard of Black Friday the day many people begin shopping for Christmas. There is a Black Wednesday as well,otherwise know as Thanksgiving Eve.

C M Y K TALLAHASSEE (AP Floridas new legislative leaders are vowing to fix the states elections and make them a model for the nation. Sen. Don Gaetz, a Niceville Republican, was officially selected as Senate President on Tuesday. Rep. Will Weatherford, a Wesley Chapel Republican, was chosen as House speaker. The two men will serve two year terms. Gaetz during his acceptance speech said that he and Weatherford have agreed that Floridians will never again have to wait in line six hours in order to vote. He also said that the nation should not have to wait five days to find out the results. Gaetz and Weatherford also promising to tighten the states ethics laws. els for this area were in negative numbers, 2.31 feet below zero. Near the end of March, the aquifer hadd ropped another 68 inches. Between the end of April and the end of May the aquifer rose 28 inches, although it was still below zero the minimum normal range, which is between0 and 8 feet. By the end of June, the aquifer had reached positive numbers, standing at 1.11 feet. But boat houses on Lake Jackson remained high and dry all summer. Progress continued in September. By the end of the month the aquifer level rose to 2.65 feet. The rains in October improved the situation even more, lifting the aquifer to 3.05 feet. Then the rain stopped and the aquifer again started to recede. As of Nov. 15, it stood at 1.87 feet, still in positive numbers, but only slightly more than half its high mark two weeks earlier. This is because the dry season has begun. For example, in the first two weeks of November less than a quarter of an inch of rain fell in the area. With so little rain the aquifer will probably drop further. This means Lake Jackson water levels may drop further as well. Clell Ford, the countys lake manager, said the situation right now is normal for this time of year, as levels fluctuate from wet to dry seasons. On Oct. 1, he said, the lake was 98.58 feet above sea level. Thats only down two or three tenths (of an inch Not everyone believes the d ry weather is the reason for the loss of water. Many people worry water is escapingi nto the Jackson-Josephine Canal, particularly at the spillways. They point to thef act other lakes do not lose water at such a rapid rate. They have worked on the canal spillways, James Dean, who lives on Little Lake Jackson, said Tuesday. The water is going down more slowly, but still leaks out. He is extremely impatient, however, about the lack of progress in connecting Lakes Jackson and Little Jackson. There have been grant applications to work on the problem, Dean said, but they could take until May or June.

For the past couple of years, the wooden figurines had been missingf rom the Mall display, but the Garden Club granted perm ission for their hand-made decor to be used for the Christmas tradition. They will be returning, said Jordan. Many people h ad missed the figurines. They werent complaining, but they missed them.

Santa, elves, Mrs. Claus and hundreds of other local h oliday lovers will fill the streets that evening bringh oliday magic to all residents and visitors. In Sebring, the preparation for the holiday season got a jump start this year as the2 6th annual Circle of Lights will kick off one week earlier than usual. Founder Jon Spiegel was very busy Tuesday morning,p lacing decorations and lights strategically around the downtown Circle, which is already more than halfway decorated. But the work is far from done according to Spiegel. The city gave me the option to start it (Dec. 1 since the parade starts later this year, but we have a full three weeks this year. Its not an easy task though. Its like putting together a big jigsaw puzzle, Spiegel said. Abig portion of the set-up for the Circle of Lights is maintenance and repairs. Each year, Spiegel and his helpers spend a good chunk of time taking care of the decor, lights and props to ensure they survive another year. Spiegel stated that this year has been heavy on the repairs and maintenance. Nonetheless, Spiegel continues the beloved tradition for the many families that travel both near and far for the unique display. Ive had families that have moved away. Theres a family down in Ft. Lauderdale that still comes back every year to have their photo taken with Santa. They get this photo and the little book and they have every single photo for the past 26 years, said Spiegel. N ew additions to the Circle of Lights this year include hand-made charac-t ers and a computerized light show that will take place b etween each puppet show. S piegel expects to be done with the set up a few days before the opening night onD ec. 1. Theres a lot of fine d etailing. It takes a lot to make this right and to make it look clean, said Spiegel. The Circle of Lights will begin Friday, Dec. 1, at 6p .m. and will run nightly from 6-9 p.m. through C hristmas. Santa will be available each night for photos as well as games,r efreshments, puppet and light shows.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThroughout the history of football, there have been dynasties. From the likes of Alabama and the New England Patriots in recent years, back to the 49ers of the 80s, Steelers of the 70s and Packers of the 60s, each has won multiple titles during itsdecade. And yet none of them achieved what the Avon Park Mitey Mite Red Devils accomplished this past Saturday, when they won their third consecutive Mid Florida Football Youth Super Bowl title with a 7-0 victory over the Fair Oaks Rattlers. I think this is the best one,said Avon Park head coach Reggie Knighten. First of all, thank God, he got us through this season, its unbelievable. This years matchup was a repeat of last years MFFCC Super Bowl game in which the lil Red Devils won easily. This year the win would not come quite so readily as each team imposed their defensive wills on the others offense. The first quarter set the tone as both teams were repeatedly forced to punt the ball and neither team threatened to score. This continued until late in the second quarter when Avon Park had the ball on their own 25-yard line. With about two minutes left in before intermission, Devil quarterback Garrick Rowe rolled slightly to his right. The offensive line created a large gap that allowed Rowe to burst through and get past the secondary. Angling toward the sideline with Rattler defenders trailing, though never quite catching up, Rowe continued for 75 yards and the touchdown. The Red Devils converted the extra point and went into the half leading 7-0. The second half resumed and the defensive battle between the two teams continued. This time, though, it was the Rattlers that threatened late in the fourth when they broke a long run from deep in their own territory. This time, however, the Red Devil defense recovered in time to make a game-saving tackle at the 25 yard line. From there, the Avon Park defense reverted back to form and stalled the Rattlers drive to preserve By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe level of competition leveled off Monday night. After facing state-ranked behemoth First Academy last week at the Avon Park TipOff, Lake Placid found itself against a much more evenly matched opponent in their road trip to LaBelle. But though it was plenty close, the Cowboys held off the Dragons by a 62-56 score. The opening quarter saw the highest scoring differential of the night, at five, with LaBelle edging out to a 1510 lead. Lake Placid nearly duplicated that margin with a 1612 tilt in the second quarter, cutting the lead to 27-26 at the half. And while the final two frames saw just a twoand three-point differential, both went the Cowboys way in providing for the final margin. Positives were seen, however, as three Dragons wound up in double figures for the night, showing a spread out scoring attack. Nick Tuason lead the way with 14 points, with Anfernee Munnings adding 13 and Scott Colley 12. And Lake Placid was efficient with its shots, the twopointers anyway, going 16of-30 for 53 percent. They also converted nineof-12 at the free throw line, a 75-percent clip. But it was from the other line, the three-point line, where the Dragons went cold, hitting just five-of-25. Lake Placid was aggressive defensively, garnering 15 steals for the game, with Jonah Brown totaling four swipes, and Marty Hickey lead the Dragon board crashers with six rebounds. But in another area that will need improvement, of the 16 rebounds the team got on the night, only one was on the offensive boards. But this early in the season, first-year head coach John Million is very much in the assessment phase of things and assuredly sees it for what it was. Acold night from long range and a need to get on the offensive glass. Lake Placid will have time to work on things over this holiday break in the schedule before hosting itshome opener Tuesday against DeSoto. B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING When the big m oment comes, when upon that big, penultimate stage, there are those who step to the front and others who blend into the background. Lady Blue Streak Taylor Tubbs showed Saturday that upon such moments, she thrives digging into a reservoir of will and determination, to actually surprise her-s elf with a 7th-place finish in the Class 3AState Cross C ountry Finals in Tallahassee. Seeded eighth coming into the final meet of her high school cross country career, Tubbs arrived a day early to give the course a once-over. I practiced on Friday and r an the course, she said. It was very similar to the Regional course and comparable to the course at Statel ast year. The drive up there w as excessive, but the course was comparable. After running it, I decided that I wanted to do the first mile in 5:59. Come race day Saturday, when Tubbs hit the first mile marker she glanced at her watch to see where see stood with her goal. H er watch read 5:40. I was surprised, she said. I worried for a second and thought, thats just too fast. But I felt fine so I just kept that pace. Perhaps helping pull her along at the elevated clip wash ow the field had separated. As opposed to last years State Final, where Tubbs got off the line only to see a masso f runners bolt past her, it was a smaller group that SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, November 21, 2012 N ASCAR This Week3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE T aylor Tubbs exceeded even her own expectations with Saturdays seventh-place finish in the Class 3A State Cross Country Finals. Tubbs shines in Tallahassee By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI The Miami M arlinslatest payroll purge received final approval Monday from the commissioners office, and as the teams top baseball executive began to discuss the deal during a conference call, a bad connection generated waves of reverberating noise that filled the phone line. Nearly a week after the Marlins swung their widely ridiculed trade with Toronto, negative feedback keeps coming. Commissioner Bud Selig approved the block-b uster deal, however, even though it made Marlins fans irate and made the t eam a nationwide punch line. T he trade sends All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes to the Blue Jays along with pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson, catcher John Buck and outfielder Emilio Bonifacio for seven players, none of whom has a big-money contract. Miami received infielders Yunel Escobar and Adeiny Hechavarria, pitchers Henderson Alvarez, Anthony DeSclafani and Justin Nicolino, catcher Jeff M athis and outfielder Jake Marisnick. By swinging the deal only months after the Marlins moved into a new s tadium built with taxpayer money, they pared from their books $146.5 million in payroll. Thats their net savings after agreeing to send $8.5 million to the Blue Jays as part of the trade. Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said he understood why fans were mad, and confirmed the trade w as necessary because owner Jeffrey Loria wanted to pare payroll. Beinfest also conceded the deal will make it harder for the team to recruit free agents in the future. But Selig decided not to block it. This transaction, involving established major leaguers and highly regarded young players and prospects, represents the exercise of plausible baseball judgment on the part of both clubs (and does not violate any express rule of Major League Baseball and does not otherwise warrant the exercise of any of my powers to prevent its completion, Selig said in a statement. It is, ofc ourse, up to the clubs involved to make the case to their respective fans that this transaction makes s ense and enhances the competitive position of e ach, now or in the f uture. The players traded by the Marlins have combined guaranteed salaries of $163.75 million through 2018, including $96 million due Reyes. I understand the pause the fans have with the instability in our roster at a time when we were hoping to be very stable in the new stadium, Beinfest said.

C M Y K the 7-0 win. e always preach running the football and defense, said Knighten. We called ourselves the University of Alabama this year, run the ball up the middle and play good defense and that is how we won today Avon Parks Garrick Rowe, who scored the touchdown and was one of the two Avon Park defenders that made the game saving tackle, was named the games Most Valuable Player. Knighten stated that the first loss of the season was the catalyst for this year. After being undefeated the previous two years, they were stunned on a last-play loss to the Okeechobee Bulls earlier in the season. Whether the dynasty can continue is anyones guess, but dont bet against it. And yet, no matter what happens in the years to come, the Avon Park Mitey Mite Red Devils have realized a dream that few teams do at any level a championship threepeat.

The first group was the six girls that all finished in those spots, she said. I was leading the next group and pretty much held that position the whole way C ontent to stay in her spot, but not wanting the lead group to get too far away, Tubbsinevitably picked up the pace and kept it going through to the end when she realized she had set a pers onal record with a time of 18:34.61 and was quickly made aware of her place. I knew the time, but wasn t sure of my finish, she said. Coach Renee (Gomez was right there at the finish a nd yelled out, you got seventh!Which was a vast improvement over my place last year In that State Final, Tubbs had finished 61st with a time of 20:21.80, which means she shaved nearly two full minutes off her time and vaulted up 54 places. As it was, she was less than two second behind sixth place and barely more than four seconds out of fifth. Had Tubbs ran in any of the other three classes, she would have finished in the top five as, based on her time, she would have finished fifth in Class 4A, fourth in 1Aand third in 2A p utting her time at 16th best among all the 721 runners that competed. I thought a lot about this being my last race in high school on the trip, so I was prepared when I finished, she said. And I really wasnt upset at all. With how I finished, with a new personal record and so much to look forward to, I was pretty excited. Part of what Tubbs still has to look forward to is, after a brief respite of rest and relaxation, the track season, where she was a state medalist a season ago. When the last track meet comes, I think that will be a l ittle sad, she said. But its funny, I also finished seventh in the mile at State last year. With how much Ive improved and how much stronger Ive gotten, I can hopefully get top five this year Considering Tubbs shaved so much time in Cross C ountry and moved so much further up, that goal might be setting the bar too low. For as we now truly know, when the spotlight comes on, Taylor Tubbs isnt afraid to shine. Continued from 1B Tubbs makes major improvement By contrast, the trade stamps the Blue Jays as contenders in the ALEast. T hey havent reached the playoffs since winning their second consecutive World Series in 1993. Miami also finalized a deal with outfielder Juan Pierre, who agreed to a $1.6 million, one-year contract. T hat leaves the Marlins with an estimated openingd ay payroll of $36 million for active players, which would be their lowest since 2008. In the latest figures, Oakland had the lowest payroll in the majors this year at $59.5 million. While Beinfest said the Marlins acquired championship-caliber talent, fans believe Lorias goal was to increase his profits in the new ballpark rather than put increased revenue into the roster. e did receive a payroll range from ownership that we needed to achieve, Beinfest said. With this transaction, we have achieved that payroll range. The Marlins flopped as big spenders. They began the year with a franchise-record payroll of $112 million, then went 6993, their worst record since 1999. After sinking to last place by midseason, the Marlins traded former NLbatting champion Hanley Ramirez, second baseman Omar Infante, right-hander Anibal Sanchez and closer Heath Bell. eve finished in last place the past two years, and that is unacceptable, Loria said in a statement. Its incumbent on us to make the changes necessary to make usa winner again. It may not happen overnight. But with the players we acquired in the second half of last sea-s on, coupled with the infusion of players we are acquiri ng now, we will be returning to Marlins baseball: high e nergy and hungry Reyes, Buehrle and Bell s igned multiyear deals as newcomers a year ago during an unprecedented Marlins spending spree, and Beinfest acknowledged other free agents might be now reluctant to sign with Miami. Itll be a factor, he said. I dont think were happy about this at all. I understand there may be some disdain in the marketplace. We wont know until we get into those negotiations with free agents. Its definitely not great for the club, and were going to have to deal with it. Miamis biggest remaining star, slugger Giancarlo Stanton, has been among those expressing anger about the trade. Beinfest said he hadnt talked with Stanton about the deal. I know this is an emotional time, Beinfest said. Im sure it has been tough for him. Our feeling was to maybe let the dust settle a little bit and then talk to Giancarlo. I hear the frustration. Its not unexpected.T his has been a tough go, but we think its best for us moving forward. Playersunion head M ichael Weiner withheld comment, saying he was a waiting more input from Major League Baseball. I n January 2009, the union reached an agreement with M LB and the Marlins covering 2010-12 which Weiner s aid was a response to our concerns that revenue sharing proceeds have not been used as required. As part of the deal, Weiner said the team planned to use such proceeds to increase player payroll annually as they move toward the opening of their new ballpark. Selig said he was sensitive to how Marlins fans reacted to the trade. Baseball is a social institution with important social responsibilities, and I fully understand that the Miami community has done its part to put the Marlins into a position to succeed with beautiful new Marlins Park, Selig said. Going forward, I will continue to monitor this situation with the expectation that the Marlins will take into account the sentiments of their fans, who deserve the best efforts and considered judgment of their club. I have received assurances from the ownership of the Marlins that they share these beliefs and are fully committed to build a long-term winning team that their fans can be proud of. AP Sports Writer Ronald Blum in New York contributed to this report. Continued from 1B Trade approved, doesnt bode well for Marlin fans Continued from 1B AP makes it three in a row I dont think were happy about this at all.

Priester Road, received the Yard of the Month Award, presented by Martha Goode of the Avon Park Founders Garden Club. CLUBS& ORGANIZATIONS S pecial to the News-SunAVON PARK A recommendation t o the Avon Park Founders Club resulted in the Yard of the Month Award being presented to James and Julia Brock, 2315 Priester Road. One of the first things that is noticed i n their yard is a majestic Bismarck Palm,with all its graceful,curving silver-gray branches. The tree has survived even though it has been affected by cold winter temperatures. In the same plant-i ng bed as the Bismarck,is a floss silk tree that was damaged when strong winds tore the middle of the tree. Thist ree is deceptive because it produces beautiful deep pink flowers,but the trunk is covered with thick heavys pines. Two large poinsettia plants are at the opposite end of the bed. A tree had been planted in the same area and when it was cut down,the poinsettias began tof lourish. Other plantings around the home include date palms,Indian hawthorne,pittosporum,jatropha and Mexican petunia. In planting beds along the outer p erimeter of the property contain pinecone ginger,day lilies,angels trumpet,white bird of paradise,canna lilies, tibichina,a bottle brush tree,banana plants,heliconia,gardenia and an orna-m ental coffee plant. In the back yard,a cement block wall is completely covered with a creepingf ig vine. Hidden behind the wall are bins used for composting and holding soil and mulch. Several types of fern ares een in this part of the yard,as well as several knockout rose bushes. Besides citrus trees and papayas seen in Florida yards,the Brocks also have two peacht rees. The Brocks have visited ECHO,in Fort Myers,and are growing two of the plants found there. These plants come from third-world nations and each onec an be used for many purposes. One of them produces a seed that is ground and used to make infant formula. ECHO is a botanical garden specializing in plants that have unique capabilities. TheB rocks encourage everyone to visit this garden. The total effect of the yard is e nhanced by the cool,light green color of the house. To recommend a yard or for more i nformation about the Founders Garden Club,call 452-1927. Brocks receive Yard of the Month honor from Avon Park Founders Club

They can house up to 25 students at a time. Students are referred to them for many different rea-s ons,but as student William Pennbaker told the Rotarians, each one of them have made bad choices and that is why they are there. W illiam will be graduating Nov. 28 and returning back to his family. He is 18 years olda nd plans on getting a mechanics college degree. The students stay at the R anch from six to nine m onths. Eighty-two percent of the students that graduate do not get back into trouble. The students have the same requirements as any other stu-d ent in school. The Ranch houses only boys. After a full day at school,the students learn life skills,such as how to work with animals. Theyh ave pigs,cows and goats at the facility. They are taught woodworking,electrical skills and culinary arts along with helping deliver different typeso f animals. The students are only allowed visits from family members twice a month. J oe Chestnut,executive director of AMIkids Last Chance Ranch,refers to thes tudents that make bad choice s while there as knuckleheads and they are forced to wear orange jumpsuits until they decide to make the right choices. Every student isa ccountable for their own actions. Students are also taught that community service is an integral part of the AMIkidsp rogram,teaching kids about giving back and building bonds to the local community. After a recent tornado in the Venus area,four kids fromA MIkids Last Chance Ranch helped with clean-up efforts. Someone told them about ane lderly man who needed help after his home was destroyed by the tornado. Amidst a seao f debris,the boys cleared d owned trees,twisted aluminum and remnants of a home destroyed. By the end of the first week of work,the boys managed to fill two 30-y ard containers with debris. It was a valuable lesson in giving back for the boys and they left with the sense of pride that comes from makinga difference. The Ranch was founded in 1982 as a juvenile facility. There are 56 facilities in eight states at this time. They arec urrently trying to get funds from the state to stay open. If not,they will close the facili-t y after Dec. 31.

(Reading Enjoyment Affects Childhood Happiness) a Child program. The chapter members presented Carol Pollard of Lake Placid with Books-AMillion Gift Cards to purchase new books to be placed in red backpacks for Lake Placids first responders. Cpl. Eddie San Miguel, Lake Placid Police Department,spoke with the chapter members on the importance of the R.E.A.C.H. a Child program in Lake Placid. Having the backpack of books in his vehicle gives him the opportunity to give the child something positive when faced by a traumatic situation in their life. The R.E.A.C.H. books not only provide a distraction from upsetting incidents,but may even promote literacy. Its all a matter of establishing a positive relationship at an early age that will carry on as the child ages and if a child can get a good feeling from a book,it may encourage a lifetime of reading. The non-profit organization provides backpacks each of which contains childrens books to police officers and other first responders,who pass them out to kids at the scene of accidents,fires, domestic disturbances and other traumatic events. R.E.A.C.H. a Childs mission is to put a smile on the face of a child in the time of need. Lake Placid is collecting new and used books at Lake Placid Radio Shack and Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce.

C M Y K SEBRING I am just facing reality this morning aftera perfectly delightful fiveday stay at Hawks CayR esort on Duck Key Island in the Florida Keys. If you ever consider entering a contest and think,oh,why bother ... ll never win,I tell you,gof or it. Last May that was my thinking after listening to an announcement the whole month on a local radio sta-t ion. The last day I called and was in complete shock three hours later upon receiving at elephone call stating I had won the grand prize of a fournight,five-day trip and sever-a l amenities to the aforementioned resort. W e drove down Nov. 11, returning Nov. 15. One night we went out on the Sunsetc ruise feeling sprinkles in the air but as our comedian tour l eader advised us,the sky cleared for perhaps 10 minutes and we experienced a beautiful sunset on the Atlantic. Our most interest-i ng event of the stay was watching the trainers work w ith the four dolphins at the Dolphin Connection area. It is amazing how the dolphinsr eact to the trainers commands and we saw great perf ormances from these outstanding creatures. We just had a rewarding overall exper ience and would highly recommend the resort for a vacation getaway. Several northern friends are still arriving. Im suret hey are happy to flee the frigid weather in the north and we welcome their return. We especially extend greetings to new residents in thep ark this fall. Mary Tenant from Minnesota has purc hased the Trombley home on Cooper Street. Mary andR uth Lee have been friends for many years,which influenced Marys decision to join our park.

He and Marilync ome to us from Illinois. Welcome to all. Congratulations to Paul and Julia Henneberry,whose home was chosen November House of the Month by our managers. At least one couple in the park was impacted by effects of Superstorm Sandy. Ray and Shirley Young were visiting family in England and ended up spending an additional week due to flight groundings and backup caused by Sandy.Though with family,the extension was quite frustrating from wondering when their flight would leave. Welcome back to both. We are happy Bill Lapeer is enjoying restful days at his home and welcomes visitors. Please remember all our residents in need of continued strength and healing to include Wendy Hervey, Ginny Burns,Bob George, Geri Spangler and Marjorie Lake. Our prayers go out to all.

Two of the groups albums are also in the Top 100 and seven of the Australian bands songs are in the Top 200. AC/DC was one of the few acts that would not release music through the digital outlet. Two years ago Apple struck a deal with The Beatlesrecord label, EMI Group, and management company, and began selling the groups music. Kid Rock, who had also been against selling his music through the digital retailer, is releasing a new album, Rebel Soul, on Monday and its available on iTunes. Country star Garth Brooks, however, has yet to release his music on iTunes. Four of AC/DCs live albums and three compilation records are also available.

By BOB GARVER Special to the News-SunPreviously, in the wilight series B ella Swan (Kristen Stewart), a human, married Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), the vampire love of her life. The marriagew ent through despite objections from Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), Bellas spurned werewolf admirer. After a very scary pregn ancy, Bella had a half-vampire baby. Edward and Jacob both showed dedication toB ella and the baby, eventually deciding to call a truce in the centuries-long feudb etween vampires and werewolves. Breaking Dawn Part 2 ends the Twilight series on a dull note. The film sees B ella and Edward living happily together raising their d aughter. Bella has since become a full-fledged vampire, and she takes to her new species with ease. The series has always l oved its prolonged scenes of Bella and Edward in love w ith each other, usually with some vampiric twist. The final film continues the tra-d ition, but the lovey-dovey scenes seem like old hat at t his point. The same can be said of the cameras many lovingly l ong shots of Pattinson and Lautner. We get it, theyre heartthrobs. The closest the film comes to finding an original wayf or them to be sexy is a scene where Jacob exposes a secret along with a good deal of his body. And the scene hardly counts becausei t is played for laughs. Of course, theres always s ome obstacle standing in the way of the couples hap-p iness. This time its the Volturi, vampire overlords who have a bone to pick with Bella and Edward over their daughter. T he Volturi are undoubte dly threatening, but never quite evil. They have a tend ency to act like villains (especially their leader, played by Michael Sheen, a ppropriately chewing the scenery like he has vampire fangs), but really they are little more than misinformed peacekeepers. C ome to think of it, the werewolf leaders in Breaking Dawn Part 1 played a similar role. This series hasnt had a properv illain since Bryce Dallas Howard in 2010s Eclipse. B ella and company agree that a violent confrontationw ith the Volturi is looming, so they gather up as many fellow vampires as they can to form a counterattack. A host of new characters arei ntroduced in rapid success ion, too rapid for us to form any sort of connection to t hem. I got the impression that we are only meeting these characters now because t he studio wants to spin them off into ill-advised side projects that carry the lucrative Twilight logo despitea threadbare connection to t he series. I see similar spinoff opportunities for Jacob and a Volturi member played by Dakota Fanning. M any viewers are quick to sing the praises of the films c limactic action sequence. Its hard to tell what runsh igher during these scenes the emotions of the body count. I heard a lot of screaming in my theater during this sequence. First therew as a lot of suspenseful screaming, then it was angry s creaming, then it was vindicated screaming and finally i t was happy screaming. The sequence is spectacular if youre a fan of screaming in theaters and spectacularly unproductive if yourea fan of plot twists that make sense. Im a fan of both, so I ll call it a draw. Ultimately, the sequence merely proves just how des-p erate the film is to have something exciting happen w hen clearly nothing is meant to happen. The Twilight series had a good run, but perhaps five films is one too many. Theres only so much enjoyment one can get out of good-looking vampires andw erewolves and theres only so much enjoyment I can get out of watching people swoon over good-looking vampires and werewolves.N ow theres nothing left to do but let the franchise slowl y fade away from theaters and let Stewart and Pattinsonh opefully much more quickly fade away from the tabloids.

Many of the receptions at which they serve include guests consuming large amounts of alcohol. If an intoxicated male guest made suggestive comments to my daughter or touched her,he would be asked to leave the facility. But what is my son supposed to do when an intoxicated woman,usually much older than he,pinches his backside and makes inappropriate comments or invitations? My son isnt a prude. His sense of humor allows him to laugh it off,but it happens often and he is becoming annoyed. In fact,hell say,Mom,its pretty gross!Abby,what are these woman thinking? What should he do to promote self-respect but not cause an uncomfortable atmosphere for himself and the guests? Curious Mom in New Jersey Dear Mom: The employee protection rules are no different for males than they are for females. What your son should do first is document the incidents with dates,times and the women involved. He should then report their behavior to the banquet supervisor at the country club. Im sure the person in charge will want to know,because if the sexual harassment isnt stopped,it could result in a very embarrassing and possibly costly lawsuit against the club. Dear Abby: I recently began dating a widowed coworker. We are both private people and we have kept our personal lives out of the workplace. Only our close friends at work know we are dating. T he issue we now face is the office gossip queen has spotted us out and about,and is asking all our friends about whether or not were dating. We barely know this woman and dont care much for her. How do I politely respond when people start asking me about my boyfriend? Im concerned that if I tell them were seeing each other,ll be treated differently because he had been widowed only a short time. I have spent my entire life avoiding the drama machine, and now Im afraid Ill be thrown onto center stage. Please help me. Drama-Free Mouse Dear Mouse: Face it,your secret is out. If you prefer not to discuss your private life,all you have to do is say so to those who question you out of curiosity. But why are you afraid that youll be treated differently? Whether your coworkers wife died two weeks or two months ago,he is available. Widowers have t old me that women have approached them within days of their wivesfunerals. Youre acting like you feel guilty for being happy. For both of your sakes, please stop feeling like youre doing something wrong. Dear Readers: I am pleased to offer the traditional Thanksgiving Prayer that was penned by my dear mother,Pauline Phillips. No Thanksgiving would be complete for me without it. Oh,Heavenly Father, We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry. We thank Thee for health and remember the sick. We thank Thee for freedom and remember the enslaved. May these remembrances stir us to service, That Thy gifts to us may be used for others. Amen. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving,everyone! Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Male server gets wrong kind of gratuity at country club F LY Lady Leanne Ely Dear Abby GETTYSBURG,Pa. (APTwo-time Academy Award winning director Steven Spielberg expressed a sense of humility Monday as he delivered the keynote address during ceremonies to mark the 149th anniversary of Abraham Lincolns Gettysburg Address. ve never stood anyplace on earth where its easier to be humbled than here,said Spielberg, whose biopic about the 16th president is currently in theaters. His remarks were made at the annual event at the Soldiers National Cemetery in Gettysburg,near the site where Lincoln gave the famous oration amid the American Civil War in 1863,four months after the battle in which the Union turned back an invasion of the North by Confederate troops under Gen. Robert E. Lee. After spending seven years working his new movie Lincoln,Spielberg said the president came to feel like one of his oldest and dearest friends, and he sensed he was living in the presence of what he called Lincolns eloquent ghost. Lincoln wanted us to understand that equality was a small Ddemocratic essential,Spielberg said,describing Lincolns three-minute speech as his best and truest voiceand the single most perfect prose poem ever penned by an American. Carl Sandberg,in his biography of Lincoln, described it as a speech about how democracy is worth fighting for. It had the dream touch of vast and furious events epitomized for any foreteller to read what was to come,Sandberg wrote. His cadences sang the ancient song that where there is freedom men have fought and sacrificed for it,and that freedom is worth mens dying for. Lincoln director Spielberg speaks in Gettysburg

Eggs Baked in Prosciutto di San Daniele Cups and Kale Salad with Grana Padano and Citrus Dressing Thanksgiving is my favorite h oliday to be a chef. It feels so good putting all that love into making that special meal. As a chef,I am usually working on that day and I dont mind at allb ecause I have gotten to make so many families happy by b eing their chef so no one had to cook. Im sure most of you know how stressful cookingt he Thanksgiving meal can be. Over the years,I have done m any different types of preparations to the turkey and I have to say that deep-fried turkey ist he way to go for me. It has the best flavor and retains the most moisture over any other way t hat Ive cooked a turkey. One year in Key West,I o ffered a Thanksgiving dinner like no other I had done before. It was called The Native American Feast.I offered a five-course meal withf ive different NativeAmerican recipes. The fist was a Wampanoag Indian recipe for venison,hominy and cranberries from Massachusetts. The second was an Ojibwe Indian recipe for acorn squash soupf rom northern Michigan. Next was a Cherokee Indian r ecipe of dandelion greens and peanuts from North Carolina followed by a Seminole Indian recipe of smoked wild boar from Florida and the finale wasa Caddo Indian recipe of sweetened fry bread with blueberry sauce from east Texas. I really enjoyed that night and it went over very well witho ur guests. We had requests to do it again,so we did it again the following weekend. This week,I have a recipe for you that is not your typical leftover turkey sandwich. It is a slider with a hint of spice. I hope you enjoy your holiday and have great food and family time. Cheers,Chef.Turkey sliders1 each assorted frozen 1.5 ounce dinner rolls 1 1/2 ounce fully-cooked turkey breast,sliced 1/2 tbs. Franks Hot Sauce 1/2 tbs.
