C M Y K Special to the News-SunS EBRING With thousands of shoe box gifts already collected in Sebring, area residents are encouraged to continue packing boxesf or Operation Christmas Child through Build a Box, an online giving tool. This year, the Samaritans Purse project expects tor each a milestone collecting and delivering shoe boxes to more than 100 million children since 1993. Hundreds of volunteers have worked to spread Christmas cheer at three Sebring-area collection sites where 4,249 shoe boxes packed with school supplies, toys and necessity items were dropped off by residents last week. Although National Collection Week has ended, its not too late for participants of Operation Christmas Child to fill shoe boxes online with items for hurting kids overseas. Many local families are choosing to pack shoe box gifts virtually through Builda Box. By visiting the projects website at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ, here is h ow you can get involved: Select a childs age and gender Shop through an online selection of gifts Virtually pack them in an empty shoe box, and Finish it off by writing a note of encouragement Then, through tracking t echnology, donors can "follow the box to the destination country where it will be hand-delivered. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritans Purse, headed by Franklin Graham, has collected more than 94 million shoe box gifts and handdelivered them to suffering children in more than 130 countries. This year, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect another 9 million giftfilled shoe boxes and surpass the 100 million shoebox milestone. Through the power of a simple gift and the message of hope through Jesus Christ, these young survivors of natural disaster, war, famine, and poverty learn they are l oved and not forgotten. For many of these children, the simple shoe box will be the first gift they have ever received.

Continued on page 5A News-Sun staffSEBRING A46-yearold Sebring man was charged with felony battery after a woman reported to police that he beat her for having Thanksgiving dinner without him. According to a Sebring Police Department report, the woman, who is 66, said that her boyfriend of two years had been drinking all day on Thursday and laid down to take a nap. Since he didnt wake up, she told police, she had Thanksgiving dinner without him. After she was done with dinner, the victim said she went to the suspects room to see if he was OK. When he woke up and asked about Thanksgiving dinner, she told him she had eaten without him. Thats when he got mad and started shoving her out of the bedroom and into the living room, she told police. The suspect shoved the victim down into a chair and began punching her in the chest and on the arm. A neighbor heard the commotion and knocked on the door, which stopped the attack, the woman said. The victim told the suspect to leave, but he didnt comply. The suspect, who tried to flee out the back door when police arrived, was charged with battery on a person over age 65 (a felony and obstructing justice, which is also a felony. Man charged with aggravated battery on Thanksgiving Day News-Sun staffSEBRING For 26 years, ABATE Florida Inc., Inerstate Chapter hasb een doing a Toy Run to benefit local children in n eed.

According to a Florida Highway P atrol report, the bus was stopped at the intersection of North Olivia Drive and West Rutland Road at 7:45 a.m. to pick up students. The bus had its caution lights on and stop signs displayed. J onathan R. Kirk, 21, of Avon Park, told troopers the glare from the rising sun caused him to reposition his sun visor, distracting him and causing him to not see the bus in time to stop. K irk was charged with careless driving for failing to maintain a safe distance from traffic ahead, the report stated. Tuesdays was the second time in less t han a month that a Highlands County school bus has been rear-ended. On Oct. 31, a bus was stopped at the railroad tracks on U.S. 98 in Sebring when a car failed to stop, hitting anoth-e r car that was in turn pushed into the bus. That bus was carrying 21 students.

C M Y K By BARRY FOSTER N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Monday n ightsChristmas parade in Avon Park signaled the start of the holiday season but what many people dont realize is that there are an umber of mailing deadlines that are right around the corner. EricaSearch of Sebrings GoinPostal says those who want to get theirc ards and packages to the right place and on time need to make their plans today. T he Sebring-based operation offers servicesfrom United Parcel Service,F edEx,DHL aswellas the United States Postal Service, For instance,if there are people who have Christmas cards that are destined fore xotic locations such as Africa or Central and South A merica,they probably should be stamped and on the way by Nov. 30,Search said. Other countries,such as t hose in western Europe can go out as late as Dec. 7,she s aid. Although those dates were not set in stone,they are considered the last rea-s onable daysfor customers to expect a timely delivery. P ackages sent to military addresses need to be shipped by Dec. 10 That includes APOs, FPOs and DPOs,she said. Because the packages are bound for military locations, there are a number of specialr estrictions. No aerosol cans are permitted for instance, alcohol is prohibited as are most kinds of tobacco. Anybody sending those p ackages out will be asked to fill in a form and anything s ent to those locations also is subject to inspection,shes aid. The most economical and generally the slowest delivery is parcel post andthe deadline for thosep ackages alsois not so very far away. The drop dead datefor that currently is set atDec. 13. And,she adds,that as the d eadlines get closer,the volume of packages,boxes and bags ramps up as well. The crunch week for Christmaswill be Dec 1721,she said. Thats when the massive amounts of packages come in. After that,it will be priority mail or some other kind of accelerated delivery service. Sebrings GoinPostal also offers a same day courier service. That is only available for locations within a four-hour maximum drive time from their Sun N Lake office.Courier service isreservedfor extremely important shipments and also comes with a commensurate price tag. All of those prices are custom quoted depending upon the drive time and other variables,she said. Making certain that boxes arrive on time an intact,they have put together a list (and checked it twice) for those who will be sending packages near or far. The Box First and foremost (and the most obvious) is the selection of the container in which to packagethe items. While this may sound easy there are many things to consider when choosing a box. Choose a box that is strong enough to protect the shipment. A new box is always best and certainly goes a long way in helping with an insurance claim. Ifit isa used box be sure the cardboard is rigid and in good condition. Check for cracks, weak spots,rips,or corner damage. Be sure all the flaps are intact and remove any old shipping labels. Shipping r egulations prohibit the use of any container that has wording or indications ofh aving been a container for alcohol,chemicals,tobacco, o r flammable substances. If you are in doubt,dont use the box. We cannot accept it for shipping and the carriers will refuse to pick it up. The Packaging Material The proper protective m aterial in which to packagethe items is just as important as the box.N ewspapers are good for reading but not forpackagi ng.While abundant and free,the paper packs and settles considerably.ande liminates any protective value it may have had when you first placed it in the box. U se bubble wrap to wrap fragile items individually. D ont be shy with it. When placing items in the box be sure to leave at leasttwo inchesof space on all sides. Fill this space with properc ushioning material such as peanutsor lightly crumpled craft paper. This will protectthe items from damage should the container take a sudden shock. Pack the container snuggly enought hat the items do not move around during transportation. I mproper cushioning materials include clothing,old blankets,rags and newspaper. The Closure O nceitems have beenproperly packaged,it is now time to close the box and secure it. Again,there are some things to consider. Do notu se masking tape,duct tape, or electrical tape to close packages. These types of tape will not stand up to the rigor of shipping when stuck to a paper product (cardboard). Instead,choose a quality tape specifically manufactured for packaging such as clear or nylon-reinforced tape. Water activated reinforced tape (brown paper tape) is also acceptable,but more expensive. Apply a minimum of three strips to the top and bottom of the box. Applying a strip along the open flap edges for added security also is a good idea. Do not wrap packages in any kind of paper,or use string as a closure. Modern shipping facilities utilize highly complex and automated sorting equipment,very little is done by hand. A package that is covered in paper,string or other such materials has a high probability of getting snagged during this process. Return address informationneeds to be well displayedon the outside of the container. If this happens to be paper and it is torn away so is the returnaddress information. Without a doubt this will,ata minimum,delay timely delivery ofthe package,if it gets delivered at all. The Labeling The most important factor insuring the fastest and most efficient delivery of your package is proper and legible addressing. Ifthe package is shipped via UPS,FedEx or DHL a smart labelwill be generated from the carrier s oftware which will be attached to each package. These smart labels willi nclude bar codes and routing codes that are read by o ptical scanners in the respective carrier automated sort facilities. Utilizing the smart labels ensures accurate routing and prompt deliveryo f packages. In order to generate these labelsclear,legib le,complete and correct address informationis a must. Print clearly the nameo f the person to whom the parcel is being shipped,their c omplete address,including apartment or suite number. Ifthere isa phone number,itn eeds to beincluded as well. That alsowill be entered into the softwareso should t here be a problem with the delivery the carrier will m ake an attempt to resolve the issue before returning the shipment. Be sure the zip code is correct. Incorrect zip codes will delay delivery.I fthe package is going to apost office box be sureit hasthe correct box number as well as the zip-plus-four postal code. For APO and FPO addresses double check to ensure the name,rank andm ilitary unit name and number are correct. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, November 28, 2012Page 3A GRIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 11/28/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 5 5 3 3 8 8 6 6 Sun n lake Jingle Bell 5K run 00025465 3x10.5 BW Got something to buy sell or trade?

I am a resident in that area and have not occupied my home for the past month for personal reasons. I have received a water bill for that month for $53.08 showing a usage of water. I have contacted the mayor regarding this bill,but to no avail. I called the water department only to be told that it is still active,whatever that means. Why should I or anyone else with a water usage have to pay for water that was not used? If I have the water turned off for that period of time they will charge me $30 or more to have it turned back on when I return. This,in my estimation,is highway robbery or extortion and deliberately taking advantage of the residents. We are all at the mercy of all utility companies when they conduct business like this. We must all remember this is the time of voting for officers in the City of Avon Park or in any city in which we reside. We should not allow the robbery of its citizens by the utilities company or other services provided where our taxes pay for it. Allan Noseworthy SarasotaFirst and foremost, we are AmericansEditor: As a former high-level Republican official in a northern state during the late 1970s and early 1980s,I am embarrassed,saddened and appalled by what I perceive to be the partys current negative transformation. I was proud to be a loyal member of the GOP,which at that time was a party of inclusion,tolerance,positive social and economic progress and outreach. Sadly,those values have been replaced in many quarters by exclusion,intolerance,retrogressive social and economic policies,and a circle the wagons organizational dynamic. Thanks to the results of the 2012 elections,our nation has been spared the catastrophic consequences that would have resulted from a different electoral count,leading to the United States government in January 2013 becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the multibillionaire industrial and financial fraternity. The election also had the positive result of preventing a headlong rush to a plutocracy and the danger of a return to a 19th century society consisting of but two classes:baronial and peasant. Sadly,much of the GOP is currently ruled by an amalgam of religious radicals and ultra right-wing theocratic fanatics,overladen with an unstated but transparent veneer of racial intolerance. The radical circles of the GOP are reeling now,given their self assurances that the Supreme Courts infamous Citizens United decision would open the flood gates of contributions from billionaire industrialists,casino magnates,hedge fund managers,and their ilk,thus guaranteeing their candidates success. Another negative element in the GOPs play book is the persistence of the radical right wing media with their pernicious,destructive,and seditious modus operandi of trumpeting halftruths,factual distortion and denials along with outright deliberate prevarication. It is revealing to read so much of their daily airwaves propaganda regurgitated in letters to the newspaper editors. Proof that P.T. Barnum was right and Josef Goebbelsedict that if a lie is told forcefully enough and often enough,there will be a segment of the population who believe it. As a former ardent Republican and current Independent,I can only hope that our political system can soon evolve to replace the mutual hatred, name calling,and divisiveness with mutual respect,cooperation,and policies that benefit us all in this great nation of ours. A vivid and encouraging illustration of that ideal was the meeting and partnership between the President and New Jerses governor during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. As Republicans,Democrats,and Independents alike,we should constantly remind ourselves that first and foremost we are all Americans and that political radicalism by either party achieves nothing but a set of negative values and acts inimical to our collective best interests. Gerry Garnich Sebring BouquetBob Evans helps Michigan woman, local parentsEditor: On Thanksgiving Day,I was thankful for Steven who works for Bob Evans restaurant. Every business should have a Steven working for them. After a phone call from my home in Michigan,he went above and far beyond his call. He took his busy time to help my 93-year-old parents have a Thanksgiving meal on Thursday.They were homebound and without relatives in Sebring. Hats off to Steven. You are the epitomy of customer service. Many thanks to you. Linda Willmeng Watervliet,Mich. W hile I have complained about some of the nastiness on Facebook, I was a little sur-p rised to hear it was listed among t he top three things that stress people out,espe-c ially during the holidays. I have to g ive credit to the social media site. It has prompted t he opportunity for people all over to go public daily with something they are thankful for especially during the month ofN ovember. I didnt participate this year,but I did last year. Since then,ve tried to make it a habit to recog-n ize the things Im thankful for on a daily basis year r ound. Not necessarily in a public fashion,but at leastt o those who the thanks is directed toward. We spent our Thanksgiving at home this year. In the past we haves pent it at my sisters or my brothers. This year though I wanted to cook Thanksgiving dinner myself. It had been a longt ime. In fact,it had been 11 years since I cooked Thanksgiving dinner myself. When my husband left,the family kind of took over the holidays Thanksgiving was either at my brothers or sisters, and Christmas moved to my moms. They didnt want to burden me with all of the cooking and clean up afterwards,considering I had two young children at home and a full-time job that doesnt recognize holidays. It was OK; I let them take the holidays over. Honestly,if it hadnt been for them,we probably wouldnt have had a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal,especially that first year. Anyway,this year I decided I wanted to cook Thanksgiving dinner again. I have always loved to cook,and remember as a high school sophomore cooking the entire meal myself while my dad had my mom at the emergency room. She suffered from serious breathing problems asthma and allergies,to name the worst things at that time. Dad woke me up to tell me he was taking her to the hospital and I j ust went ahead and started cooking. They made it home quite a bit later to a big mealt hat had been kept hot. Mom had an o xygen tank with her,but she apparently told the doct ors she wasnt staying at the hosp ital. It was that year when the doctors strongly u rged Dad to move the family to Florida or Arizona and here we still are. My decision to stay h ome this year was reinforced when a week ago we headed to church and the children informed me they had been talking andd idnt remember me cooking a Thanksgiving meal at h ome. Well,I wasnt going to have any of that. Brianai s 21 and Daniel is 16. Who knows how many more opportunities I will have before one or both move away? Not only did Iw ant them to remember a festive meal like that being prepared at home,but I wanted to make sure they helped fix it. T he turkey was smoked and all of the trimmings were prepared. Each one of us kept busy in the kitchen, and even when my parents arrived,there was nothing for them to do. They were allowed to stay in and watch the parade and dog show on television. Dinner was ready shortly after the noon hour. All of the dishes were finished on time. Dad and Daniel brought the turkey in,and it was all I wanted in the dinner bird a beautiful brown on the outside,nice and moist on the inside and a perfect flavor. Although it wasnt a perfect day since my siblings gathered together elsewhere,it was still a beautiful day and was perfect in its own way.As we stood in the center of the kitchen, holding hands in a circle while Dad offered the blessing,I knew I had made the right decision to stay home and cook. It was a Thanksgiving I wont forget,and I dont think the kids will either. Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor of the News-Sun. She can be reached at 385-6155 ext. 515.

For that matter,why is there a frenzy in the first place? W ve seen sharks circling wounded seals with better manners,and they leave the ocean cleaner than when they found it.W e have it on excellent authority ravenous shoppers strip shelves,scattering what they dont want all across the floor. S ome stores have resort to having law enforcement on site. Think about that. S hoppers requiring crowd control. Perhaps you remember the Walmart worker on Long Island,N.Y.,who wast rampled to death in 2008. It is easy to see why stores take precautions. A sales clerk at the Avon Park Walmart, who asked not to be identified,said peopleb rought chairs and blankets into the store late Thanksgiving,lining up in the aisles early for certain special sales. One line formed at 9 p.m.,for instance, for a television sale that didnt start until 5a .m. There were even hall passes,like back in elementary school,so people could go to the bathroom without losing their place in the line. Many shoppers were in stores so early t hey had to have skipped their pumpkin pie. Does anyone know what triggers this k ind of hysteria? Why do people run out, bellies full,high on triptophan right after Thanksgiving dinner. Is it just an elaboratew ay to get out of doing dishes? Did they have time to give thanks for w hat they already had before they ran out to get more? Or were they so focused on buying that their Thanksgiving prayer was, Please Lord,let me score a 42-inch,High Definition TV tonight. Have we no sense of gratitude for what we already have? Are we never sated? Why is it so many of us always need more? Now,we understand how important shopping is to the American economy,and we certainly applaud all those individuals who are doing their patriotic best to raise our GNP. We have to say,however,that news footage of the crowds stampeding through store doors as if their lives depended on it is completely unsettling,especially because of the scary almost maniacal look on their faces a look that reminds us of addicts headed for free methadone. For goodness sake,it gets so bad men have been known to play tug-a-war over towels with winner take all. Is there some hole in our hearts that cannot be filled by faith and compassion a lone? W here is the spirit of Jesus Christ in all t his materialist lunacy? Where is the Peace on Earth? Riots. Not in Gaza, in aisle two We dont know about you,but sometimes we have to wonder about our fellow Americans.

Rick Scott on Monday challenged Floridas community ands tate colleges to develop four-year degrees that would cost no more than $10,000,which also would continue their movei nto an area that was once the sole domain of the states public universities. T he mean level of tuition and fees was $3,328 during the 2011-12a cademic year,according the Department of E ducations 2012 annual report for the Florida College System. At thatr ate,a four-year degree would cost about $13,300, o r $3,300 above Scotts goal. Tuition and fees for four years at a Florida university averages about $25,000,or nearly twicea s much as for the 28 colleges. S cott made his proposal before an audience of elected officials as well asc ollege and community leaders at the Clearwater c ampus of St. Petersburg College. Its the first school to take up his chall enge. The Republican governor,who campaigned in 2010 on a promise of job creation,said the degreess hould be in fields that will provide the graduates with the best opportunity for employment. The idea drew applause f rom state education officials,but the Florida D emocratic Party criticized his proposal,notingS cott supported a $300 million spending cut for state universities this year and reductions in meritbased Bright Futuress cholarships. ve heard these empty words from Rick Scott before and Floridas middle class families arel ooking for real leadership not failed gimmicks masquerading as sound bites,the Democrats said in a statement. The colleges in recent years have begun offeringa limited number of fouryear degrees,but the bulk of their students remain in two-year programs. Most of Floridas bachelors degrees still are produced by the states 12 public universities. By KEVIN BEGOS A ssociated PressPITTSBURGH Add seven swans,six geese andf ive golden rings to the list of Christmas gifts that cost m ore than they did a year ago. And if you get all 364 i tems repeated throughout The Twelve Days of Christmascarol,youll pay 6.1 percent more this year, according to the annualC hristmas Price Index compiled by PNC Wealth Management. That comes to $107,300. The rise is larger than e xpected considering the modest economic growth w ve had,said Jim Dunigan,managing execu-t ive of investments for PNC. He noted the governments Consumer Price Index has risen just 2 percent in the 12 months before September. T hrifty shoppers may find some reasons for cheer. Six items mentioned in the song havent gone up in price: maids-a-milking,ladiesd ancing,lords-a-leaping, calling birds,turtle doves and the partridge. The eight maids-a-milking still cost just $58 because the minimum wage hasnt risen. Twelve drummers drumming ($2,775.50ven pipers piping ($2,562 also be considered relative bargains compared to seven swans,which will set you back $7,000. Nine ladies dancing will cost you $6,294.03. Dunigan said the 2011 drought caused the prices of some birds to soar,partlyb ecause of corn and other feed costs. The geese were up 29.6 percent,and swans were up 11 percent,Dunigan said,a dding that none of the gifts in the song went down in price this year. The price of a pear tree is $189.99,an 11.8 percent jump from last years $169.99. Five gold rings jumped 16.3 percent this year,to $750,and three French hens are now $165, instead of $150. The $15 partridge is the cheapest item,and swans the most expensive,at $1,000 each. Last-minute shoppers who turn to the Internet will pay a bit more for the gifts. B uying one set of the core items in each verse costs $24,431 in traditional stores this year,but $40,440 online. Part of that differ-e nce is the extra expense of shipping live birds,Dunigan said,adding that Internet costs rose 1.5 percent compared to last year. PNC Financial Services Group Inc. checks jewelry stores,dance companies,pet stores and other sources to compile the list. Some of its sources this year include the National Aviary in Pittsburgh and the Philadelphia-based Pennsylvania Ballet Company.

The board of trustees for S FSC is appointed by the governor. This is because it d oes not have taxing authority. Those boards that set millage must be elected. Stephens takes pride in the college,emphasizingh ow staff,department heads and faculty contribute to its s uccess. We have a strong team here,they deserve most of the credit,he said. Wre quite blesses with an incredible f aculty that is very student oriented. Wehavef aculty from every state you can imagine.

In 1984,it grew to include DeSoto County. The UniversityC enter had just opened when I arrived; the Museum o f Florida Arts and Culture and the dental program had been planned and funded. Stephens did have a huge role,however,in the col-l eges latest chapter,which was adding four-year degrees and changing froma community college to a state college this past year. I am only the third president in SFSCs history, Stephens said. Wre going on our 48th year. Thats real good signal of stability and continuity. It says a lot about the college. This doesnt mean the college hasnt faced issues. In a rural community. There are economic challenges,Stephens added, and the enrollment is volatile. Between 2008 and 2011 we had a 33 percent increase,between 2011 and 2012 we had a drop (in the construction trades especially). The state legislature made significant changes affecting adult education, Stephens said. It used to bef ree,but now costs $30 a semester for those who can prove Florida residency. For those who cannot,like migrant workers,it costs$ 150 per semester,putting education out of many peoples reach. Teaming with three other county colleges to share ana rchitect,and with funding available before the economy collapsed,the Health Science Center was built. Stephens said Glenn Little, vice-president for adminis-t rative services,played an essential role in the project. It was a strong example of teamwork,and my favorite (projectm any people were involved. Our consortium saved the s tate money. Im very proud of that. He enjoyed renovating the Theatre for the Performing Arts,event hough it was a complex, expensive process.

It was somew hat miraculous. Im not sure how we did it. As to the future,there aret hings the college needs to improve, Stephens said. or example, continuing education and English fors peakers of other languages. That would take a statewide i nitiative. d like to see an academy for advanced students, our excellent students,so they can get a year ora head. That saves the state and parents a lot of money. d like to dual enrollment and the career academy expand. d like to see more athletic programs and more ways for the students to connect (with the school We have a wonderful art program I want a musical program,too.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comL AKE PLACID It was the annual Turkey Bowl a s Lake Placid girls soccer coach John Merlo calls it. T hat first game back after the Thanksgiving break where his team seems to have trouble getting going such as in Monday nights 4-2 loss to visiting LaBelle. oo much turkey and not enough practice, is how he described it. And the two practices we had werent mandatory, so with some girls out of town, we had about eight or nine that were there. Which goes a long way to explaining a lopsided first half in which the Cowgirls scored all four of their goals for the night. e came out slow and didnt run our trap very well, Merlo said. We have an underclassman who is running the defense for the first time and she gets a little overwhelmed at times. Its an experience builder, but tonight we left their main scorer free way too often. Hannah Waller did get the Lady Dragons on the board in the opening 40 minutes and the team went into the half trailing 4-1. e wanted to improve the little things and we set our goals for the second half, Merlo said. The goals were to get at least one more score and prevent them from scoring again. And they set about doing that as the defense really tightened up and goalkeeper Tamija Douglas stepped up in a big way. On the night, Douglas had eight saves, many of the sliding and diving variety. None, though, was more impressive than on a penalty kick in the second half. Facing the LaBelle striker one-on-one, Douglas didt commit too early and By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Anew professional sports franchise is coming to Highlands County. To be called the Heartland Eagles, the team will be part of the fledgling American Basketball League. Steve Haney, ABLChief Executive Officer, said his vision in creating the alliance was to revisit the days where minor league basketball was a community oriented event. In fact, Haney said, the idea will be for each of the teams to focus on their respective communities from affordably priced tickets to players and staff living in and working with area clubs, groups and organizations. Haney himself has a rich history in professional basketball, having served asa former agent and attorney to NBAHall of Famer Earvin Magic Johnson, as well as working with other superstars such as Dominique Wilkins and NBAAll-Star Kenny Anderson The ABLwill start with a dozen teams split between Florida and Texas, playinga 24-game schedule and winding up with a Final Four-type tournament for the top two teams in each division. What differentiates the ABLfrom other leagues are two major things: It will play by FIBAinternational rules, and it will serve as a feeder league for European leagues. Although there have been no players announced for the Heartland Eagles franchise, they will have some super-star guidance. Former NBAstar Wayne Monte Tree Rollins will be the head coach. Rollins himself is a product of central Florida, having been born in Winter Haven. The seven foot tall Rollins played 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association for teams including the Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets and Orlando Magic. In addition to serving as coach of a number of semipro teams, Rollins also served as both assistant coach and backup center for the Orlando Magic during the 1994-95 season He is expected to be at South Florida State College this morning with other league principals to make the announcement and answer questions. The Eagles will be based out of SFSC, both practicing and playing their home games at the Panther Gym. Also in the ABLs Florida division will be the Emerald Coast Knights, the Fort Lauderdale Sharks, the Davie Stars, the Panama City Breeze and the West Palm Beach Piranhas.

Members of the South Florida State College Volleyball team kicked off the competition by carrying in the torch during the opening cere-m ony. They were escorted by the Highlands County Sheriffs Office and the West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department. T he torch was passed off to special athlete Ilana Levy who carried it to Bill Wheeler, then Francesca DiMeglio and finally Tim Johnson carried it to the starting line.

They competed for ribbons presented after lunch. The two-wheel cyclist did a 1-kilometer race. Eva Monk and Ricky Marino placed first while Billy Wheeler and Shawn Squires won second. In the three-wheel cycling they went 500 meters.

Hit a good percentage of them and those extra points add up, but it was the Okeechobee Brahmans who were tickling the twine Monday night in a 77-49 win over the host Dragons. It started fast and furious as Sylvester Butler opened the scoring with one from beyond the arc. Lake Placids Anfernee Munnings answered with a drive with his left, but the Butler did it again, following with another three. Brahman Eddie Neal then had a putback before Dragon Nick Tuason drove the baseline and spun a reverse in. But Butler and Philip Jones both hit from downtown to sandwich two Jonah Brown free throws and move Okeechobee out to a 14-6 lead. Lake Placid cut into it a bit, with Brown driving for a score and Scott Colley hitting a 12-foot jumper. But the Brahmans got three straight scores in the paint to close out the quarter with a 20-10 edge. The Dragons would claw back in some early in the second, with Nathan Stanley flipping in a layup and Tuason and Munnings drivi ng the lane for a bucket apiece to offset two Brahman buckets. Stanley then split two trips to the line to get the lead under 10 at 25-18. But another three, this from Brendan Jonnassaint, got it back to double digits. G avin Liford then scored on a breakaway and Jonnassaint converted a traditional three-point play and suddenly it was back to a commanding 33-18 margin. Two more Chobee scores came inside from Eddie Neal to extend it further, though Justin Mason got inside for two Dragon points, as did Brown. But then, after Butler had made a free throw, his ensuing miss was rebounded by Neal who put it back up for an unconventional threepoint play. This would close out the first half with the Brahmans up 40-22. Lake Placid would keep it close in the third, though the lead still grew to 53-33, and the Brahmans would add five more second-half threes and put up 24 points in the fourth quarter to provide for the final margin. The Dragons were back at it Tuesday, hosting DeSoto, before heading on the road Friday for a trip to Mulberry.

C M Y K made a leap toward the right corner of the goal to deflect it away. And for a good portion of the second half, had one not noticed the scoreboard, it might have seemed Lake Placid was in control and keeping the ball on the Cowgirl side of the field. s a little tough though, Merlo said. Our two midfielders, were asking them to help out on defense more so that by the time they get the ball up field, they dont have enough leg left to really take a good shot. Wed get it t here, but the shots didnt h ave much on them. That was, until the 75th minute when the combination of Michelle Hunter and Mary Grace Bates showed some impressive leg strength. On a breakaway, Hunter was racing in from the left and tried blasting a shot. But a LaBelle defender was there to snuff it out, only the force of the shot sent it sideways where Bates faced a similar scenario. Gathering the ball as a Cowgirl leapt toward her, Bates also saw the shot virtua lly stuffed. But she unloaded with such steam that it still spurted forth with enough velocity to carry it into the far corner o f the net. The goals of the second half were accomplished, though the final moments would tick away with no further accomplishments. ith it right after the holiday, a non-district gamed oesnt matter too much, Merlo said. We came out slow but really picked it up and Im happy with how the girls finished. This was good for us and n ow we should be ready to go with our next few gam es which, if we can play like this, are very winnable. The Dragons hosted DeSoto Tuesday and travel to Hardee Thursday.

C M Y K By SAMANTHA CRITCHELL A P Fashion WriterNEW YORK Have you ever said thank you through clenched teeth?T he gift in that nicely wrapped box was so not what you wanted:comfy clothes instead of designer duds,or a kitchen gadgeti nstead of a shiny piece of jewelry. Sometimes,though,the best gifts are the ones you use,and,frankly,most of us probably wear hoodies more than haute couture. With a closet full of beautiful boots and gravitydefying heels,flat-foot, furry Uggs werent at the top of celebrity stylistdesigner Rachel Zoes shopping list. They were OK for other people she might even have suggested them but she didnt see them fitting into her closet until someone gave her a pair. Once you put them on, you cant go back,Zoe says. In my house,its now the family at-home shoe. I wear them all the time. My son has 10 pairs and my husband has 10 pairs. Christine Frietchen,a shopping expert who is advising TJ Maxx and Marshalls this year on their gift-giving programs,says a gift is something you wouldnt get for yourself. And the best way to know youve given a successful gift,she says,is if the receiver becomes an evangelist for it. Adam Glassman,creative director at O,The Oprah magazine,was never at risk of buying the Patagonia fleece sweatpants his brother got for him a few years ago. Never in my life did I think Id need sweatpants, but I live in them,he gushes. When I come home f rom work,they are my goto item. I wear them more than any other clothes in my closet. The only gift he might t reasure more is the Eddie Bauer silk long johns his other brother gave him, something else he didnt think he needed or wanted. Where was the Tom Ford,the Gucci?Glassman says with a laugh. But after a few winters of layering the long johns under his more fashionable pieces,hes now buying them as gifts for other people. Shellhammer says friends and family cant ask for the items offered on Fab.com because the website sells things people dont know exist. Items such as a shower curtain with a map of Paris (what enthusiastic traveler wouldnt want one?) or a pug T-shirt for your favorite dog lover. (Shellhammer predicts the Mountain Pug Tee will be a top seller this season. The entire shirt becomes the face of a pug,wrinkles, jowls and all.) And Shellhammer says its OK to be playful and show a little sense of humor when giving a gift. Youd be surprised how many positive comments the website has received about a hedgeh og dish brush,he says. It just gives you that crack of a smile. Brian Berger says the Yumaki toothbrush his busi-n ess partner gave him is a present hell always remember and appreciate. And,its something he uses every day. S ome other gift ideas from the experts: Kitchen knives. Comfortable earbuds. Colorful tights and leggings. Berry bowls. Miniature flashlights that fit in pockets and purses. Pretty soaps. Personalized tote bags. A lot of people do skimp on themselves,especially ina season where they are spending so much money, so an upgrade of something mundane to luxurious or at least more fun can bea very thoughtful gift,says gift advisor Frietchen. Have you ever had a really nice hairdryer,a REALLY good dryer? You think a hairdryer is a hairdryer until you have a good one in your hand. It can change your life, Frietchen says.

By LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical WriterCHICAGO They may be a big hit at kidsbirthdayp arties,but inflatable bounce houses can be dangerous,with the number of injuries soaring in recent years,a nationwide studyf ound. Kids often crowd into bounce houses,and jumping up and down can send other children flying into the air,t oo. The numbers suggest 30 U.S. children a day are treat-e d in emergency rooms for broken bones,sprains,cuts and concussions fromb ounce house accidents. Most involve children f alling inside or out of the inflated playthings,and many children get hurt whent hey collide with other bouncing kids. T he number of children aged 17 and younger who got emergency-room treatment for bounce house injuries has climbed alongw ith the popularity of bounce houses from f ewer than 1,000 in 1995 to nearly 11,000 in 2010. Thats a 15-fold increase,a nd a doubling just since 2008. I was surprised by the number,especially by the rapid increase in the number o f injuries,said lead author Dr. Gary Smith,director of the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide ChildrensH ospital in Columbus,Ohio. Amusement parks and fairs have bounce houses, and the playthings can also b e rented or purchased for home use. S mith and colleagues analyzed national surveillance data on ER treatment for nonfatal injuries linked with bounce houses,maintainedb y the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. T heir study was published online Monday in the journal Pediatrics. O nly about 3 percent of children were hospitalized, m ostly for broken bones. More than one-third of the injuries were in children a ged 5 and younger.The safety commission recommends against letting children younger than 6 use fullsize trampolines,and Smiths aid barring kids that young from even smaller,homeuse bounce houses would make sense. There is no evidence that the size or location of an inflatable bouncer affects the injury risk,he said. Other recommendations, often listed in manufacturersinstruction pamphlets, include not overloading bounce houses with too many kids and not allowing young children to bounce with much older,heavier kids or adults,said Laura Woodburn,a spokeswoman for the National Association of Amusement Ride Safety Officials. T he study didnt include d eaths,but some accidents are fatal. Separate data from t he product safety commiss ion show four bounce house deaths from 2003 to 2 007,all involving children s triking their heads on a hard surface. Several nonfatal accidents occurred last year when bounce houses collapsed or were lifted by high winds. A group that issues voluntary industry standards says bounce houses should be supervised by trained operators and recommends that bouncers be prohibited from doing flips and purposefully c olliding with others,the study authors noted. Bounce house injuries are s imilar to those linked with trampolines,and theA merican Academy of P ediatrics has recommended against using trampolines at home. Policymakers shouldc onsider whether bounce houses warrant similar precautions,the authors said. Bounce houses a party hit but kids injuries soar T he number of c hildren aged 17 and younger who got emergency-room t reatment for bounce h ouse injuries has c limbed along with the popularity of bounce houses from fewer than 1 ,000 in 1995 to n early 11,000 in 2010. Thats a 15fold increase,and a d oubling just since 2 008. GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE

And when? First things first. Lets talk about a flour were all familiar with wheat flour.Wheat flourMade from ground wheat, wheat flour is a big step above white flour ifyou have not adopted a glutenfree lifestyle for your family. It canbe difficult at first to make the switch to whole wheat (always lookfor whole wheat not just wheat!) so I recommend gradually replacingwhite flour in a recipe with whole wheat until youre used to theconsistency and difference in flavor. Now whats all this about gluten? Wheat flour contains gluten. Glutenis a protein that makes bread chewy. It also helps dough to bindthrough the baking process. Gluten,however,isa problem for thosesuffering from celiac disease,wheat allergies or non-celiac glutensensitivity. Its estimated that 10 precent of people are walking around withsome form of gluten sensitivity,and every day more and more peopleare stating to discover that gluten is the source of many differentproblems from digestive issues to bloating. If you dont care about the gluten content of the foods you eat,butyoud still like to spice things up with your flours every now andthen, give spelt a try.Spelt flour Spelt is a cereal grain in the wheat family,but it isconsidered a wheat-free flour. It contains some gluten and it bakesvery similarly to wheat flour,but it has a very nice nutty, sweetflavor. Spelt is easier to digest than wheat,but it is lower infiber. Important to note:The gluten in spelt is broken down reallyquickly, so its important to not over mix it or youll end up with aproduct that crumbles into oblivion!Gluten-free floursLuckily,there are more gluten-free flours available now than everbefore. Keep in mind,though,that there is no true substitute forwheat flour in terms of texture and taste. You cat replace all ofthe whole wheat flour in a recipe to an alternative type of flour andexpect the same results. Quinoa flour Theres much debate surrounding the question of whetherquinoa is paleo friendly.Whatever it is (and you can decide foryourself!),its a very good source of essential amino acids,fiber,folate, iron,magnesium and zinc. This flour is excellent in muffins,banana bread and other baked goods. However, go easy on it. The nuttyflavor of this flour can easily take over a dish,so substitute onlyabout a quarter of the total flour volume of a recipe with quinoa flour. Rice flour Made from milled rice-kernel hulls,rice flour containslots of Vitamin B6,calcium,iron, fiber and other trace nutrients.Rice flour is great for baked goods,homemade crackers and pastas. Youcan also use this gluten-free flour to thicken sauces and gravies.Easy does it on the rice,though,because the FDA is still trying tofigure out how safe it is for us to be eating! (Link to arsenic ricearticle) When it comes to flour, gluten-free does not always equal primal orpaleo-friendly. There is a difference. The following flours areglutenfree and primal.Primal gluten-free floursMost of these alternatives have many more minerals and vitamins thanwhite or wheat flours do so it wont hurt to incorporate them intoyour cooking whether youre a primal eater or not. Almond flour Almond flour is made from blanched almonds that havebeen beaten into submission into an unrecognizable product! In thestore,you may have trouble finding almond flour, so look for almondmeal. Or, buy your own blanched almonds and grind them into a powderwith your coffee grinder or food processor. Almond flour tastes bestin baked goods,grain-free granolas and flourlesscakes. Coconut flour This yummy flour is made from pulverized meat of thecoconut. It has a sweet, mild flavor ad is used frequently in paleocooking in everything from pancakes to muffins. Arrowroot powder and tapioca starch These flours are controversialbecause of their starch content,but lots of primal eaters use them.Arrowroot powder is awesome for thickening sauces without changing thetaste of the dish. It gives baked goods and pancakes a nice,lighttexture. Tapioca is similar,but it also lends some elasticity to adish.

Dear Abby: My wife and I have been married for five years. I recently discoveredt hat she made between 10 and 20 porn videos when she was 19. We got married when she was 27. We have four kids from two previousm arriages. I am devastated. When I confronted her about it,she cried harder than I had ever seen. She said she was lost, and its the biggest regreto f her entire life. I understand how hard it c an be to tell someone you have done something like this. I havent led a perfect life either,and I have my o wn skeletons and things that I would never mention. But still,I cant get over this. I have never felt pain like this in my entire lifea nd dont know what to do. I love my wife and dont w ant a divorce,but it haunts my every thought. We have had a great life a nd I trust her completely. What should I do to get o ver this? Devastated in the U.S.A. D ear Devastated: A giant step in the right direction would be to accept that y ou both had a history before you married each o ther,and you both have done things you arent proud of. Then make a list of all the good things you havet ogether,and forgive your wife for making some painful mistakes in the past that she was too ashamed to tell you. It certainly beats divorcing a woman you love overs omething she cant change. If that doesnt w ork,then youd be wise to seek marriage counseling. Dear Abby: My wife verbally abuses me con-s tantly.We have an 11month-old child,which is the only reason I tolerate it. While I try hard not to curse back,once in a whileI end up doing so. I have sought professional help to cope with her behavior,but the suggestions havent helped much. The situation is becoming unbearable,and I dont see it changing any time soon. What should I do? Unbearable in Virginia Dear Unbearable: The suggestions havent helped because you werent the p erson who needed the professional help; your wife does. In a moment whens he is calm,tell her that as much as you care about her and your child,you do noti ntend to spend the rest of your life being her verbal w hipping boy,and if she doesnt get help for her anger issues,you will leave.I f she refuses,you should follow through and make s ure you get equal custody, if not more,because her volatility could be harmful to your child. D ear Abby: We are a pair of senior citizens who a re very much in love. We have a lot in common and enjoy our companionship.M arriage is not an option because of pensions,bank a ccounts and predetermined heirs you know the story. We would like the whole w orld to know we are committed and devoted to each other. Would it be unusual,at this late stage,to becomee ngaged with no intention of setting a wedding date? Blissful in Florida Dear Blissful: Rather than become engaged withn o intention of formalizing your union,why not havea c ommitment ceremony and invite friends and family toc elebrate your love for each other with you? Ask a member of the clergy to bless your union. I'm sure one would obligeb ecause it has been done before.

The Toronto crowd booed Sunday when the 18year-old pop stars face popped up on the JumboTron screen. They booed when a host spoke his name. And they booed as he took the stage and throughout his medley of the charttopper Boyfriendand the disco-inflected Beauty and a Beat. Earlier in the week, Bieber was presented with a Diamond Jubilee Medal by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and caused a scene by wearing overalls,unbuttoned on one shoulder,over a white T-shirt,with a backwards baseball cap.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Wednesday, November 28, 2012 I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Between allt hree hospitals in the Heartland Division,we served around 700 t urkey dinners the patients, staff and visitors. We did an overnight meal at all three locations the night before Thanksgiving and servedt he turkey dinner to the staff that work the night shift and t hen served Thanksgiving dinner all day on Thursday. It took 55 turkeys to serve t he 700 turkey dinners for this Thanksgiving. A s I start to feel a little fall in the air,I start to think about making those dishes that areh eartier than the ones I make during the spring and summer. During the winter is when I like t o make a lot of one-pot wonder dishes like my Moms cowb oy macaroni or my Grandma Hazels chicken and yellow rice. Every time I make either of those dishes,the aromas remindm e of when I was growing up and getting in the way while they were cooking dinner. Im sure chicken and yellow rice is eaten everywhere,but I had to name some typical Florida Cracker dishes chickena nd yellow rice would be one of them. Cowboy macaroni is w hat we call goulash with a can of sweet corn added to it. This week,I have a good chili recipe for you and it is not your every day chili with redb eans and ground beef. Instead it is a white bean and chicken chili recipe that is sure to please. I especially like this chili b ecause white beans are one of my favorite legumes. This recipe makes enough chili for about 20 people. Cheers,Chef.White bean chicken chili 3.5 tbs. pure vegetable salad oil 1/2 cup canned,diced green chili peppers,drained 2 1/4 tsp. ground cumin 2 1/4 tsp. dried,crushed oregano 1 tsp. crushed red pepper 7 oz. fresh,diced yellow onions 3 tbs. peeled,minced fresh garlic cloves 2 1/2 lb.. diced chicken 4 lb..
