For its first run,the Crazy C hili Pepper Cook Off brought out five teams to c ompete against one another for title of best chili. Last years overall winner was the A von Park Rotary Club and Crowd Favorite was awarded t o Positive Mobility transportation. The Crazy Chili Pepper C ook Off,named for Rotarian Dr. John Pepper,is b ack at it again Saturday with a new set up in a new location on North Commerce A venue just off the Circle and already has double the f ield of last year.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Until our society learns compassion and tolerance for others, we will not stop the spread of this disease,said Cathy Robinson,founder of Friends Together Foundation,during South Florida State Colleges World AIDS Day event on Nov. 30. Robinson,a health educator,wife and mother who contracted HIV/AIDS after a brutal assault when she was college student,shared her experiences living with AIDS. My husband and I didnt know we were infected until I was pregnant with our second child. At that time, they didnt test expectant mothers. Fortunately,both of my children were born healthy. But once word had gotten out in her small,rural community that she and her husband were infected,they faced harsh treatment from their neighbors. People hung dead cats on our door; the KKK burned crosses in our yard. They didt care who we were anymore,only that we had AIDS. People are afraid to disclose that they are infected because they are afraid of how others will treat them. Well never Hundreds turn out at SFSC for World AIDS Day event See SFSC,page 3A B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRING Florida anglers should prepare for a challenge,and they have their work cut for them. According to sdfish.com,in 1932 George Perry landed the largest largemouth bass in the United States,while fishing in Georgia a2 2-pound,4-ounce monster. That record still stands. F loridas record fish weighed 20 pounds,1 ounce. Caught by Fritz Frielbel at Big Fish Lake in 1923,i t stood as the countrys record until Perry came along. It iss till is the states largest documented catch. In October 2012,the Freshwater Fisheries division of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission initiated its Trophy Catch Program aiming to lure anglers onto the water. The program has several goals:To break Perrys record,promote Floridas bass fishing and tourism,encourage conservation through catch-and-release fishing,and exciting younger genCasting for a winner FWC launches program seeking monster bass Courtesy illustration T his 2013 wall calendar is available in Sebring stores.

A years worth of beauty By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING After 25 years the building that houses Habitat for Humanitys Re-Store needs a new roof and fire sprinkler system to be safe. Sarah Pallone,director of development for Habitat,said because of pressing deadline,Habitat went ahead with the work. The challenge now is to replenish the funding used to pay for that work,Pallone said. Enter Bernie Preblick,an artist and member of the Highlands Art League. He put together a 2012 calendar featuring local artists to raise funds for it. Thinking about putting out a similar calendar for 2013,Preblick said, As wonderful as the Art League is, there are more important things. I spoke to Sarah about dedicating the calendar to Habitat and giving them 50 percent of the net proceedings. She was excited and we went ahead. Like last year it features the work of local artists,so it also helps to promote their art. s really beautiful,Pallone said.

Rick Scott has directed executive agencies to shut down on Monday,Dec. 24. That will give workers a four-day weekend,rather than making them come back for one day and then having another day off. Workers who perform essential functions will still have to work,but thell get an equal amount of paid administrative leave to use in the next six months. Scott similarly closed executive agency offices on Dec. 23,2011,his first year in office. Former Gov. Charlie Crist granted state workers both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve off with pay in 2008.

The program was held in conjunction with WorldA IDS Day,a global event dedicated to raising awareness of HIV/AIDS. Recent HIV/AIDS statistics showeda strong need for an AIDS a wareness event in Highlands County. Statistics show that currently heterosexuals ages 70 and older have the fastest growing numbers for newH IV cases,said Becky Sroda,associate dean of A llied Health. This is the first screening to be conducted in Highlands County,a nd our county demographics suggest a strong need for o ne. All ages are at risk. Steve Ashworth,professor of SFSC EMS and Paramedic programs, encouraged attendees tol earn their status. I would rather know,because if I l oved my family,then I could protect my family. O ther guest speakers were Dr. Agustin Lacson,infect ious disease specialist,and Louise Ray,mother of two sons who contracted AIDSf rom blood transfusions in the 1980s. T he Highlands County Health Department also administered free HIV testing. Our first World AIDS D ay event was a resounding success,Sroda said. Over 3 00 people attended,and 147 people were tested for H IV. We will continue to hold this event every year in h onor of World AIDS Day, and we only expect it to get bigger from here. Though the health department has tried for y ears,an event like this has never been welcome in Highlands County before, Robinson said. The fact that SFSC took a stand to hold this event and bring awareness to peop le means a lot.

C M Y K Wait. Dont you artificial tree owners turn the page.W hile safer than real trees, artificial ones are not foolproof,especially if they are older,made out of metal or pre-wired. A rtificial trees made of PVC have their own particular danger. Many are flamer etardant,but that doesnt mean they dont burn. The plastic may smolder for somet ime before visible signs of fire appear,and in that time t oxic smoke is released. Once in flames,an artificial tree burns almost as quickly as ar eal tree. According to the National F ire Prevention Association, between 2003 and 2006 fire departments around the country responded to 240 fires started by Christmas trees. D uring that time there were 16 deaths and 25 i njuries each year. Direct property damage totaled $13.1 million. F or a reality check. Google Christmas Tree Fires. W atch a real tree and room become completely engulfed in flames in fewer than 40 s econds. Nearly half of Christmas tree fires result from dried out real trees,the other half regardless of the type of tree occur because of faulty wiring,electrical malfunctions,or being too close to heat sources like heatingv ents or candles. Here are tips to make you and your family safer. A lways make sure the decorative lights have been tested through a certified lab. ULo r ETL/ITSNA are recommended. A lways inspect light strands before using. Throw them out when wires aref rayed,connections loose,or light sockets cracked or dama ged. Do not overload extension cords. Never hide them beneath rugs. Be careful when placing t he tree. Dont wedge it into a corner,too close to a wall or t he ceiling. There should be room for air to circulate all around it. This keeps a realt ree from drying out as quickly and helps prevent the l ights from adding to the heat. Never put candles anyw here near a tree of any kind. Never leave them unattended. Never leave decorative lights on when going to bed or leaving the house. Bettert o come back to a dark house, than a dark empty space where your house used to be. It is essential to keep a real tree well watered. Check itsr eservoir every day. According to NFPA,you should take down a real tree after four weeks. For example,if you decorate your treer ight after Thanksgiving,take it down before New Years Eve. D ont put the discarded tree in a garage,shed or propped up against a house.C ompletely dry,it poses a major fire hazard. W hen buying a real tree, the trunk should be sticky with resin. Look for needlest hat are vibrant green and hard to break off. Thump the b ottom of the trunk on the ground and reject any tree when the needles readily fall off. Pets can be a worry too, e ither trying to climb the tree or eating the ornaments on it. P lace the larger ornaments on the lower branches and the smaller,fragile ornamentsh igher. To make climbing an artificial tree more difficult, m ake it denser. Add extra branches,placing them in the trunk in alternate spaces. A ccording to ehow.com, the most secure stand is one with four legs in the shape of an X. Please be careful this Christmas. The last thing the News-Sun wants to print on the front page this season is a story about your house burning down.

Christmas tree fires happen regularly,and we want you to be safe. Two ideologies in debateEditor: Lately there has been a lot of chatter calling for congress to compromise ont he budget. Compromise is fine if both sides are o n the same page or even the same book. Y ou want to rob the first national bank and I want to rob the second national bank,should we compromise and rob the third national bank? Since robbing banks is illegal,we should notr ob any. There are two different ideologies in debate. When this country was first founded, capitalism was the economic system.L ike any competition,the competitive free enterprise lets the people use their ingenuity and desires to out flank their opponent. With the ingenuity and desires of the people made the great nation that it is. The other ideology can be seen as a precursor to socialism. Socialism requires a huge government and a huge government leads to tyranny. In socialism the government owns everything and controls everything. Since the people cant own property their ingenuity and desires are put to rest. Because of their greed the populace is lulled into the promise of a utopian life. What is the outcome of the compromise between the two ideologies? Does $16 trillion debt cloud your mind? How about high unemployment and high poverty rate? All this is caused by congress making foolish laws that try to make everyone equal. The worst form of inequality is to make unequal things equalAristotle I consider socialism,as practiced in the United States,illegal. And we vote for these surrogate thefts. How else can you explain that our representatives lay taxes on the citizens and then gives part of the taxes to other citizens who do nothing to earn it. Name me one socialist country that has not wound up with an economic problem? It is not theft for the private sector to provides aid to the poor,but they have the option of who to aid,where as there is no control when government runs the show. The real debate should be what the government is responsible for and what the (we the people. Russell Errett SebringChildren with I/DD do not belong in nursing homesEditor: Ridge Area Arc was saddened to learn that Florida may have institutionalized hundreds of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DDThe Justice Departments latest letter accuses Florida of refusing to cooperate with its investigation and threatens to file a lawsuit against the state. While visiting facilities across Florida,the Justice Department discovered families who felt they had no choice but to place their children in nursing homes. The state will pay for their institutionalization but it will not provide enough funding to support less expensive programs that would allow them to remain in their homes. Isolating children with I/DD in nursing homes is a violation of their Civil Rights. In 1999 the Supreme Court affirmed that people with I/DD are protected from being institutionalized by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Arc believes the healthiest environment for an individual with I/DD is to live in their community. Keeping children with I/DD in nursing homes and institutions increases their risk for physical and emotional health problems. The investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice shows the State of Florida could save money by moving children with I/DD out of nursing homes. As Ridge Area Arc can attest, the state has made significant cuts to community based programs that would allow people with I/DD to live outside institutions,while increasing the funding to warehouse these individuals in nursing homes. Although these problems are not the fault of the current administration,it has the opportunity to correct them. We hope the Florida legislators will take action to ensure that Floridians with I/DD do not have their civil rights violated. These are children. They must be moved out of nursing homes and back into their communities where they belong. Rhonda Beckman Ridge Area Arc,CEO BouquetKickoff fundraiser a successEditor: The Tanglewood ResidentsCancer Benefit thanks the News-Sun for the great work done in helping us to promote our kickoff concert starring Todd Allen Herendeen and his Follow That Dream Band. The concert on Wednesday,Nov. 28,drew a large audience that had nothing but praise for Todd and his energetic show. All proceeds from this event will help as we work to raise awareness about cancer while raising money to fund cancer research. We are deeply indebted to our sponsor,NewsomEye, for their support. Now in its 14th year, the Tanglewood ResidentsCancer Benefit has raised more than $375,000 for research. Neil Simpson Chair Tanglewood ResidentsCancer Benefit It was one of my favorite rituals every year. One evening after dinner a few weeks after Thanksgiving my father and I would shop for a Christmas tree. My father wore his rattie st coat as he prepared to do battle with strangers who would attempt to part him from precious family resources. H e instructed me to remain silent as he executed his negotiation strategy one hed refined and perfected over the years for good reason. W hen I was 7 and he was on the hunt for my f irst bicycle,hed found a beauty by accident. As he worked his cunning on theu nsuspecting flea-market guy,I raved about the bike how I couldnt wait to get it home! I screwed up the deal royally,of course,and my dad was steamed. The flea-m arket guy wouldnt budge off the price and we w alked away bikeless. Over the next few years, I learned to keep my yaps hut when my father displayed his cunning. A s the cold December air froze our bones as a hot fire raged in an old s teel barrel to keep the tree-lot guys warm my father would almost go into a trance. Wd hit no fewer than f our Christmas tree lots every year among Kiwanis Club,Knights of Columbus,VFW,Elks Club and American Legion lots. W d search high and low,pulling out a variety o f trees and assessing them. When we found ar eal beauty at each lot, wed set it aside. Then my father would shift into high gear. Thats a sweet tree you f ound there,mister,one tree-lot guy would eventually say. Want me to ring you up? ou call this a Douglas F ir,my dad would say,as though hed earned a doctorate in horticulture. This tree is dry and weak and will probably burn my house down! Itd take 90 minutes or more,but my father would soon pit the Kiwanis Club guy against the Knights of Columbus guy,the Elks Club guy against the VFW guy,then the American Legion guy against all of them. Hed pound them so hard on the poor quality of their product that one would soon break,giving myf ather a massive discount so long as hed leave the lot as soon as possible. I had no idea at the time, but my father taught me m any valuable lessons lessons hed wished his father,who died when myd ad was only 3,had been able to teach him. I n the most basic sense, he taught me the value of money how hard it is to earn and how much harder it is to save. H e taught me that strangers dont generally c are about my interests so much as they do their own that,like it or not,youh ave to hold your ground against people who likely d ont care a whit about what is best for you. He taught me how much h e loved his family and put their needs before his own. He didnt enjoy fighting with strangers to save every dollar,but he knewt hat money was needed to provide for his children. From the day he and my mother married as young people in the 1950s,theyh ad to pinch every penny and still do woe to anyo ne who tried to take food out of the mouths of theirc hildren. If I could make one Christmas wish this year a year in which more than 40 percent of children int he U.S. are born to single mothers it would be that all children would be blessed with a father like mine and would spendt hese next few weeks shopping for Christmas trees with their dads.

This outdoor concert will provide a variety of seasonalf avorites and surely help everyone get into the holiday spirit. While enjoying them usic,plan to drop in to The Hammock Inn and meet the n ew concession operators. Longtime resident Deborah Reeves and her son BenjaminH ulitt have softly opened their business,keeping the r ustic feel and flavors that have made The Hammock Inn so popular over the years. Reeves lives in adjacent Hardee County and hast hought about operating the park concession for a very l ong time. When her son relocated from South Bend, Ind.,this summer,the times eemed right. Hulitt said he considers this a divine a ppointment as he has dreamed of operating his own restaurant for nearly two d ecades. Hulitt spent his snowy winter seasons working as a chef and doing construction in the summer months. Nowt hat he has relocated to Florida,he decided it was time to jump into his dream. I consider myself a Picasso of culinary arts,said Hulitt. I like to create a food experience that makes people h appy and doesnt cost too much. L ocal folks will probably be very happy to try his gator Philly cheese steak or gator sausage,egg and cheese biscuit. I make my own gators ausage,says Hulitt,who clearly has a passion for something just a bit different. e are going to have a variety of unique items and class ic favorites on the menu. Right now we are having a soft opening,but plan to have all our menu items available by the first week of January. O n that menu will be the ever-popular wild orange pie that has been ubiquitous with Highlands Hammock State Park since the 1940s.B enjamin plans to return to the original style pie,fashioned similar to a Key Limep ie. Both are on the menu,as is pecan pie,ice cream and French cheese cake. S weets arent the only offering however,as they s erve breakfast and lunch every day; as well as dinner. e will be open from 8 a.m.t o 6 p.m. daily,with extended hours on Friday nights when w e stay open until 8 p.m. Breakfast includes biscuits and gravy,eggs,pancakes, omelets and more. Lunch fare boasts Benjamins build-y our-own-burger,B.L.T., Whites Wings,soup and a b arbecue pulled pork sandwich that has already gotten rave reviews. For dinner,thef ish-and-chips combo, Southern fried chicken and p asta dinners all come with sides and average about $10 per person. Steak is on the m enu for just a few dollars more. e want people to enjoy the experience,said Hulitt, who adds they provide tables ervice so patrons can come in,sit down,relax and visit while they wait for their food to be served to them. On Saturday,they will h ave a limited event menu for the concert,but are looking f orward to meeting the community. We hope you wills top in for some holiday music and refreshments at Highlands Hammock State Park. D orothy L. Harris is a Park Services Specialist at Highlands Hammock State Park.

Trophy Catch also adds vital information about the largemouth bass itself. s really neat program, said Bill Pouder,administrat or of Freshwater Fisheries in the FWC southeast region. Its basically a program with incentives to get anglers out looking for fish8 pounds and over. Part of the Black Bass Management Plan,the goal is to ensure F lorida is the undisputed Bass Fishing Capital in the W orld. There is a biological component,Pouder added. raditional,standardized samples do not pull in the bigger fish. But big fish are a good sign of a healthy lake,showing the right balance of water quality and vegetation. With this program,we can track which lakes produce the best and most fish. That way we can better manage fisheries in t he future. T he rules of the game are straightforward. First and most important, Pouder said,the program is s trictly catch and release. Pre-register at www.worldfishingnetwork.c om/florida/trophy-catch. Scroll down to the clearlym arked icons. There is no registration fee. Get a fishing license,go out and start flipping. Submit entries and thats it. B ass fall into one of three size tiers called clubs. The lunker club bass are from 8to 9.99 pounds; the trophy club from 10 to 12.99 pounds; 13 pounds org reater belong in the Hall of Fame. T o document lunkers and trophy fish the bass must be photographed on a scalew ith the weight readable, and photographed on a m easuring board or alongside a ruler. The entire fish must be visible. Lunkers and trophy fish may be caught year round. R ules for the Hall of Fame are stricter. Their weight and s ize must be documented by the FWC,so must be held alive until a coordinatora rrives with a certified scale. Call (855 c oordinator will arrive as quickly as possible. S ubmissions of bass over 13 pounds may only be made from Oct. 1 thoroughA pril 31. That is because summer is a stressful time f or the fish. Any bass submitted outside those dates will be treated as the smaller class. Anglers receive incent ives,which rise in value with the size of the fish. T hey range from gift cards to tackle and more. Pouder said as more business part-n ers sign onto the program the prizes will change,or b ecome even more generous. E veryone pre-registered is eligible for an end-of-theyear grand prize drawing ofa bass boat,motor and trailer. Because the program b egan in October,the drawing occurs in 2013. The entire state is taking part in the Trophy Catch program. Bass from anyF lorida lake are eligible.

C M Y K B y BRITTANY WHITTINGTON N ews-Sun correspondentE AGLE LAKE The Lady Blue Streaks took their show on the road Monday night and successfully came home w ith yet another victory, this one against the Lady Thunder o f Lake Region. T he travel time to Eagle Lake did not seem to be of any factor this night as the Lady Streaks dominated the Thunder 63-37 in the opener of a girls-boys doubleheader. Sebring had control from the get-go and pushed out to a nearly double-digit lead in the first quarter. As it was, they settled for a 15-8 edge after the first eight minutes, before breaking it open in the second stanza. Thats when the defense really kicked it into gear, putting the clamps on Lake Region, who could only manage half of their first-quarter total. The stifling D also helped create more scoring opportunities as the offense was off and running, totaling 16 points in the frame to make ita 31-12 lead at the half. Sebring came out just as strong, if not stronger, in the second half and completely wiped the floor with what was left of the withering Thunder. A13-8 edge in the third made it a 44-20 contest before the benches emptied and allowed for a more competitive final period. The win keeps the Lady Streaks undefeated about one-third of the way into the season and will see them travel Thursday to take on the Lady Highlanders of Lake Wales. The girlsvictory set up high expectations for the boysgame, which followed shortly after the final buzzer. Unfortunately, the expectations seemed to have been seta little too high and out of reach. Still looking to settle in and find their flow, the Blue Streaks see they have work to do as they took a 58-38 loss to Lake Region. The Sebring boys will also be on the road Thursday, traveling to Davenport for a rematch against Ridge and looking for atonement against the Rails after last weeks 65-55 loss at home. SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, December 5, 2012 N ASCAR This Week4B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Sebring senior Meghan Lollis signed to attend and play volleyball at Belmont Abbey Monday morning. Joining her for the big day were, back row from left, Sebring principal Anne Linsday, Blue Streak head coach Venessa Sinness and Sebring athletic director Chris Cook, along with mother Terrie and father Gene. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Sometimes the choices we make are from a limited set of options, which looked to be the case with Sebring senior Meghan Lollis. The standout volleyball player was sure drawing interest from a number of colleges vying for her services, but none was quite the right fit overall. e were starting to wonder a bit, Lollismother Terrie said. It was starting to look like she would be choosing just the best school to play at. Which for some might be an easy choice. But for Lollis, her strength on the volleyball court is more than matched by her aptitude in the classroom and had her eying a school with a pre-med program which none of the schools, thus far, had to offer. I was playing with the OVA(Orlando Volleyball Academy) travel team and we were at a national tournament in Ohio, Lollis explained. Some schools saw me there, then the assistant from Belmont Abbey wrote me of their interest. I filled out their questionnaire and then we were in more contact. With the key being that the school had, in fact, a strong pre-med program. That was a big part of it, to have that, and so I went for a visit and a tryout, she said. e got to watch them play and stayed with some of the girls. It felt really nice, getting to know everyone, the players the coaches, it was a nice fit. Lollis also enjoyed the campus in Belmont, NC, just outside of Charlotte, and she was sold to the point of not only signing to attend and play, but to agree to the fast track. s such a good student that she was on track to be able to graduate early Sebring head volleyball coach Vanessa Sinness said. They asked her to do so and to go up there in January to get an early start. Theyre bringing her and Lollis grabs the Abbey option See LOLLIS, Page 3B Its an honor to be asked to do that. VENESSASINNESS Sebringhead coach By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA Tampa Bays running game has slowed down during a two-game losing streak, and the Buccaneers know t hey need to get rookie Doug Martin going again to remain in playoff contention. Nevertheless, coach Greg Schiano said Monday hes not overly concerned that Atlanta and Denver were able to contain the budding young star, whos third in the NFLin rushing and second in total yards from scrimmage despite not finding much room to run lately. Schiano said Martin appeared to be on his way to a nice day against the Broncos before Peyton Manning threw a couple of touchdown passes and Von Miller returned an interception for a touchdown in the third quarter to forceT ampa Bay (6-6 become one-dimensional on offense during a 31-23 loss on Sunday. He had 48 yards at the half. ... Usually if the g ame remains close, those r uns only get more they dont get less as you wear people down, Schiano said. I thought he was right on stride to have a really good production day, but then we got behind by three scores. ... So you take away, really, the prime real estate for rushing the football, and thats the fourth quarter when people are worn out. Martin carried thr ee times for 8 yards after halftime, finishing with 56 yards on 18 attempts. The Falcons limited him to 50 yards on 21 attempts a season-low 2.4 yards per carry in a 24-23A tlanta victory two weeks ago. Overall, I thoug ht D oug ran the ball well. And if we had been able to continue to do that ... I think we would have had ag ood day, Schiano said. So, I think well be fine there. W ith Martin bursting onto the scene with a 251yard, four-touchdown rushing effort against Oakland on Nov. 4, t h e Bucs averaged 171 yards rushing per game during af our-week stretch in which they turned their season around following a 1-3 start. N ow, theyve rushed f or fewer than 100 yards in three of the past four games. Tampa Bay led 10-7 at halftime Sunday. But after throwing a first-quarter TD pass to Dallas Clark, Josh Freeman couldnt get the Bucs into the end zone again until late in the fourth quarter. s just when you are behind, your whole game plan turns one-dimensionBucs running game sputters during skid MCTphoto Doug Martin has been slowed of late, but that has more to do with the Bucs falling behind. See BUCS, Page 3B News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Rhondaja Williams and the Lady Blue Streaks had little trouble running past the Thunder of Lake Region Monday night. News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Nathan Stanley and the Green Dragons went on the road to get their second win of the season, and in a row, Monday night at Ft. Meade. Streaks split with Thunder By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAfter getting off to scuffling starts, both Lake Placid basketball teams have begun t o turn things around as of late. That trend continued Monday night with both the Dragons and Lady Dragons on separate road trips. The boys, in Fort Meade to take on the Miners, followed up Fridays win over Mulberry with a 54-42 victory to move them to 2-4 on the season. The Lady Dragons, who also topped Mulberry last Friday night, had little trouble in getting past an overm atched Hardee squad in Wauchula. The boys were back in action and looking to keep their roll going, with Tuesdays home date against Hardee. The Lady Dragons, meanwhile, are off until Thursday when they play host to a visiting Okeechobee squad. Green Dragons double up

The rookie attributed his 3.1 yards per carry average Sunday to the Denver defense playing up to its billing as one of the leagues best. He also felt the Bucs showed something by findinga way to get 13 fourth-quarter points and make the score respectable at the end. Thats the thing about us, we got a lot of fighters on the team. We have a lot of competitors that want to win and will give it their all to win the game, Martin after the game.

RUSSO Associated PressNEWYORK Johnny Manziel and Manti Teo are in position to make Heisman Trophy history. Manziel, the redshirt freshman quarterback from Texas A&M, and Teo, Notre Dames star linebacker, along with Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, were invited Monday to attend the Heisman presenta-t ion ceremony. M anziel is the favorite to win college footballs most famous player of the year award on Saturday night in Manhattan. He would be the first freshman to win the Heisman and the first Texas A&M p layer since halfback John David Crow won the schools only Heisman in 1957. Im overwhelmed by this tremendous honor of representing Texas A&M, the 12th Man and all my teammates in New York, Manziel said in a statement. This is a dream come true for me, andI know its a credit to all my coaches and teammates. Id efinitely wouldnt be a Heisman finalist without my teammates and coaches. Three sophomores have won the award (Tim Tebow in 2007, Sam Bradford in 2008 and Mark Ingram in 2009), but the best a firstyear player has ever done is second. Adrian Peterson of Oklahoma finished second to Southern California quarterback Matt Leinart in 2004. Peterson was a true freshman. A s a redshirt freshman, Manziel attended A&M last year and practiced with the team but did not play. Michael Vick of Virginia Tech came in third in 1999 as a redshirt freshman and Herschel Walker was a true freshman for Georgia in 1980 when he finished third in the Heisman balloting. Nicknamed Johnny Football, Manziel quickly became a national sensation this season, putting up huge numbers in first-year TexasA &M coach Kevin Sumlins spread offense.

Rory McIlroy has been voted PGATour player of the year after winning four times, including his second major championship. The tour does not release how its players voted on the award, though not even Tiger Woods came close to the kind of year McIlroy had on the PGATour this year. He won the Honda Classic, two FedEx Cup playoff events against some of the strongest fields and captured his second major when he won the PGAChampionship by eight shots. McIlroy also won the PGA Tour money title and the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average. John Huh, who won an opposite-field event in Mexico and was the only rookie to reach the Tour Championship, was voted rookie of the year. McIlroy voted PGA Tour player of the year MCTphoto R ory McIlroy won four times on the PGA Tour this year. He led the 10th-ranked Aggies to a 10-2 record in their first season in the Southeastern Conference. With a knack for improvisation, Manziel racked up an SEC-record 4,600 yards of total offense, including 1,181 rushing to lead the conference. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Manziel zoomed to the front of the Heisman race on Nov. 10, when he passed for 253 yards and two touchdowns a nd ran for 92 yards as the Aggies upset then-No. 1 Alabama 29-24 in Tuscaloosa. Manziel and Texas A&M will play No. 12 Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl. Teo is trying to become the first defense-only player to win the Heisman. The Fighting Irish have seven Heisman winners, tied for the most with Ohio State and Southern California, but none since Tim Brown in 1987. Teo became the face of the No. 1 team in the country and leader of a defense that has b een the toughest to score upon in the nation. T he senior intercepted seven passes, second-most in the country and tops for a linebacker. He also led the Fighting Irish with 103 tackles, and earlier Monday won the Butkus Award as countrys best linebacker. Teo and the Irish face No. 2 Alabama in the BCS championship game on Jan. 7 in M iami. K lein would be the first player from Kansas State to win the Heisman. Im just honored with this opportunity that the Lord has provided me here at K-State, Klein said in a statement. Im so proud to represent KS tate in this because I feel like m y road is very synonymous and in line with the K-State way. It has been a process, it has been a journey. There have been a lot of ups an d downs, as well as a lot of hard times and growing pains t hrough it. Im just very proud to represent the K-State family and our heart and spirit in this environment. H e seemed to be the frontrunner for several weeks until Manziels late push. When Klein threw three interceptions in the Wildcats late-season loss to Baylor, Manziel moved to the front of the race. Klein is a multitalented quarterback like Manziel, but with a different approach. The 6-5, 226-pound senior is a bullish runner who scored 22 touchdowns and threw for 15 more, while leading the s eventh-ranked Wildcats (111) to the Big 12 title. Earlier in the day, Klein won the Johnny Unitas Award given to the top upperclassm an quarterback in the nation. Klein will finish his Kansas State career against No. 5 Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl.

C M Y K LAKE PLACID What a delicious feast we had onT hanksgiving Day. There were 15 turkeys and f our large hams roasted in the clubhouse,60 pounds of potatoes were peeled for mashed potatoes and everyone brought a dish for thes erving table. The tables were so attractive,set with p lace cards. There were 130 people who came to eat at 1 p.m. and7 5 came back at 6 p.m. for sandwiches and leftovers. T he women who put on this dinner are to be commended for all their hard work and so a re the people who stayed and cleaned up. Lets not forget to thank the men who helped carve up the turkey. Thanks to all. T he first dance of the winter season,Welcome Back, was 7-10 p.m.,Friday night, Nov. 23. Music was by Larry Musgrave. Everyone wasg lad to be back and enjoyed dancing to Larrys music.

Everyone enjoyed seeing the series of pictures of the couples life. At 7 p.m.,Saturday,bingo was held. This was unusual as it is always on Friday evening at 7 p.m. Due to the dance,it had to be changed. Friday or Saturday,Im sure they all had a good time playing bingo. On Sunday (Nov. 25) afternoon at 4 p.m. was the Deck the Halls party. This gives everyone a chance to decorate the big clubhouse and the big Christmas tree. Finger food and something to drink were brought to keep up the energy as you work. Its a big job. What a beautiful clubhouse w e walked into this Monday morning for the coffee meeti ng. Marysue Willeke and Marilyn Cromer made the coffee and served leftoverd essert from the Thanksgiving dinner. P umpkin pie always tastes good,even for breakfast. Peggy Sue Teague was the emcee and after telling several jokes,she introduced JodiS usco. Jodi asked us to please bear with her as the w ater main keeps breaking as the men are working on the sea wall. C arol Noel,our Sunshine person,could not spread m uch sunshine. Daisy Devlin passed away and we remember Daisy from when Don a nd Daisy served on the dance committee; Uwe Schmidt,Helen Burgans son-in-law passed away; recovering are Burt Pritchett,G lenn Horten and Barbara Howard.

Last week,she mets omeone on the net and they agreed to meet in pers on for lunch. The location was halfway between her house and mine,so she asked if she could visit when she was through. Iw as delighted. We hadnt seen each other since before J im died. We have always had a multi-faceted relationship.I n Transactional Analysis terminology,we switched r oles sometimes I am mom and sometimes she is mom but we always p layed together in our free child. She reminded me of when I was widowed and began to date. It was veryd ifferent 49 years ago. There was no Internet then. We relied on our church ora group like Parents Without Partners. As then ame implied,single individuals could date and often g et together in groups with their children. T he format was a lecture on some p ertinent subject likes afety and then y ou mingled face to face and the art off lirting came i nto play:a wink (does anybody wink anymore?) or ana mbiguous smile. How can you do that on the net? But t hat is another article. One of the lectures I have never forgotten,because it a pplies to smart precautions in the here and now,was about safety in traveling alone. Of course part of the lecture was not to travela lone to dances and lectures but to have a travel buddy. Another reason not to forget this meeting is because I met Ed that night.H e was sitting in front of me and ... but that is anothe r article. Very romantic. The subject of the lecture a ddressed entering your car. It recommended looking i nside before you opened the door. Check the rear space so that when you got i nto the car nobody could attack you from behind. A lso important was to never never give out your home phone. When I finished lecturing Suni on how the old folksd id it,she replied by sending me a marvelous email What to take to bed with you not a joke.Can you guess what it is? Your cark eys! It is a security alarm system. If someone tries to b reak in or attack you while you are walking to your car, just press the panic button a nd the alarm goes off and who would hang around while that was happening with the neighbors sticking their heads out of the win-d ow and passersby stopping. Stay safe,my friends but on a less serious note:have you ever forgot where youp arked the car and used the alarm to find it? P earl Carter is a resident of Lake Placid.

C M Y K W hy do we let unexpected problems with weather, electricity,and other little things,throw our routines in the trash? I can tell you,it is not a perfect world. One little thing out of whack throws a monkey wrench into our plan. Winter is almost here;w ith this season,comes snow,school closings,ice storms and power outages.A re you prepared with plan B? Lets pretend for a m inute (some of you will not have to pretend at all, y ou have lived it). OK,your power goes out and you have no heat,no hot water,n o stove,you cant stay home,because it is very c old.So you go to the neighbors,because they have a fireplace,but the family is still running in and out of the house. A fter the power comes back on,your home is t rashed. Why? You havenot been cooking,washing dishes,taking baths orw atching TV. You havenot really even been at home, e xcept to run in and out getting things. Here is why your home became trashed: E veryone reverted back to your days of CHAOS. They thought that since there was no power,there was no power (discipline in ourh ome). Routines are a discipline. So without power,we didnt need routines, because we couldnt adhere to them anyway. Free-for-a ll. Well,if your routines were habit,you would not h ave been able to toss them out into the snow so fast. O ur biggest problem is picking up after ourselves. Without our routines we do not police our hotspots, keep our sink clean or keept he children on track with their routines. So when the storm hits, the kids are out of school, and you are without power,y ou still have sunlight (during the day). Dont allow the fact that there is a little problem to stand in your way of doing things like you have been doing for months. You want a perfect world and most days are not like this at all. Enjoy the challenge of feeding your family with a buddy burner.If you were in scouts,you know what I am talking about. Play games by flashlight,read to them,just remember to stay calm and dont let your home get panicked. You are still in charge. Plan B is like being on a camping trip for me. I love to make do with what everyI have. Since we live in the country and have our own water system,we have to be prepared. So we have some bottles of water in the basement,for making coffee, washing our hair,sponge baths and cooking if needed.We also have two fireplaces,so we can keep warm if needed. There are dutch ovens for cooking in the fireplace anda real perk coffee maker. So we wont starve. Knowing what you can do and how, is part of not getting panicked. We also have a gas grill on the back deck. So if t he freezer was without power for more than two d ays,we would have to start cooking up a storm. Do you have an emergency backup plan in your home? Think about this fora little while and see exactly what you would do in c ase of a power outage. Do you know where your flashlights are? Cany ou find them in the dark? Do you have a weathe r radio,or battery operated radio for an emergency channel? How about extra water for drinking and minimal bathing? Do you have an alternate way to heat yourh ome? How about to cook? And the pot and pans to do it with? Do you know about s afety in the house with kerosene heaters,grills and c andles? Do you have a fire e xtinguisher handy? Do you have plenty of blankets? Hats and gloves? Just a little planning can keep you from pulling yourh air out after the crisis is over. Learn to adapt and you will be so pleased the next time there is a weather emergency. G et ready for a storm; you will be glad you did!

It took me 20 years to finally confide this secret to my mother. Afterward it felt as if a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. That feeling lasted about two minutes. Thats how long it took for her to get on the phone and spread the news to everyone she could think of. This was two years ago and,after repeatedly asking her to stop,she continues to tell. Two days ago,I caught her spilling the beans to an acquaintance she hadnt spoken to in more than a decade. We got into a heated argument,and she told me she will say what she wants, whenever she wants,to whomever she wants. My feelings are NOT considered,even though I was the victim in all of this. I feel she tells my story to gain sympathy for herself. Abby,Im ready to end my relationship with my mother. How can I make her stop flapping her lips? The Gossips Daughter Dear Daughter: I suspect you are correct about your mothers motives,and you have my sympathy. Because you cant make her stop flapping her lips,you will have to accept that she cant be trusted with any confidential information. As I see it,you have two choices. The first would be to cut her out of your life (for which I wouldnt blame you),and the other is to avoid sharing ANY personal information with her in the future. Dear Abby: My 21-yearold daughter,Shannon,has moved back home and has a part-time job. We pay for her health and car insurance. Because her funds are limited,I asked her to make me a list of things she might want for Christmas. The two things she wants are a tattoo and a piercing. I told her that while I respect her wish to express herself,I do not want to pay for something like that. I said if she wants a tattoo and a piercing,she will have to save her money and get t hem. She became upset with me and said I should give her what SHE wants instead of something I prefer. I know there are things Shannon needs. Am I selfish for not wanting to give her a tattoo or piercing when Id rather spend my money on something more practical like shoes,clothing or incidentals? Sensible Mom in Longview,Texas Dear Sensible Mom: If you are uncomfortable paying for a body modification for your daughter,then dont do it. However,you should take into consideration that Shannon is an adult now and reconsider imposing your values on her. If she were my daughter,I would give her a check for Christmas along with a note expressing holiday wishes and the thought that you gave her a healthy body,and with it,a nice complexion. It is now hers to do with as she wishes. Then cross your fingers and hope shell have second thoughts. Dear Abby: One of my neighbors insisted on giving me some handcrafted Christmas decorations that are hideous. I have never b een big on decorating the outside of my home for the holidays,but when I do,I have my own that I like much better. I know she expects me to display her items and will be all bent out of shape when she sees I havent. Is there a diplomatic way to avoid hurt feelings? Florida Reader Dear Reader: Not really. So hang one or two of them in an inconspicuous place when you decorate for the holidays,so they will be lostamong the items you prefer to display,or refrain from decorating this year.

Daughter must zip her lips with mother who opens hers Dear Abby LONDON (APThe most widely anticipated pregnancy since Princess Dianas in 1981 is official:Prince Williams wife,Kate,is pregnant. St. Jamess Palace announced the pregnancy Monday,saying that the Duchess of Cambridge formerly known as Kate Middleton has a severe form of morning sickness and is currently in a London hospital. William is at his wifes side. News of the pregnancy drew congratulations from across the world,with the hashtag royalbabytrending globally on Twitter. The couples first child will be third in line to take the throne leapfrogging the gregarious Prince Harry and possibly setting up the first scenario in which a U.K. female heir could benefit from new gender rules about succession. The palace would not say how far along the 30year-old duchess is,only that she has not yet reached the 12-week mark. Palace officials said the duchess was hospitalized with hyperemesis gravidarum,a potentially dangerous type of morning sickness where vomiting is so severe no food or liquid can be kept down. They said she was expected to remain hospitalized for several days. Palace says Duchess of Cambridge expecting a baby

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Wednesday, December 5, 2012 H i again,everyone. Hope you are doing well. I spent the first part of this past week in Miramar,h elping the Corporate Executive Chef Fred Scherger do an opening f or Morrison at North Shore Medical Center. This is 357-bed facility with a full-service Morrison Caf. I have enjoyed going on these t rips to help with the new Great Living Menu rollouts and look forw ard to going on more on them. As for the Heartland Division, we are doing great and gettingr eady for our holiday parties that we do at each property for all of t he staff. This year,we hope to knock it out up the park with food service to show our appreciation f or all the hard work put in by the staff. During my 20s,I spent nine summers on Mackinac Island, Mich.,and there are about 900p eople from Jamaica that work on the island during the summer season. Over the years,I became very close with the staff at the yachtc lub where I worked and I ate Jamaican food just about every S unday. On Sundays after brunch was over,the club was usuallyp retty quiet so we would turn the kitchen over to our Jamaican staff and they would prepare authentic Jamaican dishes for all of us to enjoy on Sunday afternoons. A t first I thought most of the dishes had too much heat from the Scotch Bonnet peppers that they used,but as I got used to the heat I started to really enjoy those dish-e s. So this week,I have a Jamaican comfort food dish for you called brown stew chicken. It can be made super spicy or as mild as youd like just go light in the peppers. Cheers,Chef.Brown chicken stew2 cups cold water 4 oz. dry black beans 2 tsp. canola oil 1 tbs. chopped garlic in oil 1 cup fresh,diced yellow onions 2 fl. oz. non-alcoholic red wine 8 oz. canned,diced in juice, no-salt-added tomatoes (including liquids) 2 lbs. chicken thigh,bone in and skin on 1 tsp. curry powder 1 tsp. thyme leaves 1/2 tsp. ground allspice 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper 1/2 tsp. black cracked pepper Soak black beans in water overnight. Drain well before use. In large brazier heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic,saut for three minutes or until tender Combine chicken and remaining dry ingredients. Add this mixture to pot and saut for 15 minutes. Stir in wine and drained black beans. Cover,reduce heat and simmer for 60 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees internally and beans are tender. Add tomatoes and return to simmer an additional 15 minutes. Ladle 6 oz. of chicken and beans onto plate,serve with rice. Tim Spain is System Executive Chef with Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and Morrison Healthcare Food Service.
