In custody are Adarius Hollinger,20 and AntonioJ efferson,20. They are being held without bond. Christopher Kenon Jr.,18, was also charged in the incident Friday.

According to the arrest r eport,the victim was standing in his driveway when he was approached by three masked subjects. He wasf orced to the ground at gun point,injuring his knee. On the ground,the victims hands were bound with duct tape behind his back. Yankedb ack up to his feet,the victim was forced against his truck in the driveway,and robbed of his jewelry and wallet, which contained $300. Then he was forced back into hish ouse and bound with more duct tape,the report indic ates. After a time,the suspects took a dining room chair tot he bathroom,binding the victim to it. T he report says the victim by this time feared for his life and began to pray. One of the suspects harshly ordered himt o stop. He said the suspects pointed guns directly at him. The men proceeded to go through the house,stealing television sets and electron-i cs. They left in the victims truck. Once they were gone,the victim was able to free himself from the chair and call 911.

The deadline is tomorr ow,County Administrator June Fisher told county commissioners at their Tuesday morning session. Shepresented a list of f our concerns to be brought by the county to the delegat ion prior to this years legislative session.. Among the items listed w ere the countys share of the cost for Medicaid servi ces,Department of Juvenile Justice detention funding,the C ommunications Services tax and the shift of Department of Correction prison inmates to jails. What we did was, w ereviewed the issues put forward by the Florida Association of Counties and narrowed them down to issues that might be specif-i c to Highlands County, Fisher said. After reviewing the list, Commissioner Don Elwell asked if there was a way toa dd to the list as presented. He suggested that commissioners might request the delegation hold the line on funding for invasive plantc ontrol as well as keeping library funding atcurrent levels. I know we are in a very unique situation with our lakes and all the fundingf orspraying invasive plants comes from the state,he s aid.I really would like to maintain that level. When asked by commiss ion chair Jack Richie if there had been a moveto r educelakes funding, Elwell responded it was his understanding such an efforthad takenplace in Tallahassee during lasty ears session. I believe they did make a slight reduction and if they make such a cut statewide that could bec rippling to our lakes,he said,noting that each of the c ommissioners has lakes in their respective districts. Elwell said the same theo ry would go for libraries, noting that funding in that area also had been on the chopping block in the past. No other commissioners h ad additional items to add to the list.

C M Y K AssociatedPressMIAMI Police are searching for a suspect aftera pregnant woman was shot to death in Miami. Witnesses said they heard gunshots Monday night and watched the woman collapse in the street. They applied pressure to stop her bleeding wounds before paramedics arrived but she died at the hospital. Authorities did not release her name but said she was in her late 30s. Neighbors said the gunman was likely targeting someone else and the woman was caught in the crossfire. By MIKE SCHNEIDER A ssociated PressDAYTONA BEACH A Florida appellate court isb eing asked Tuesday to decide whether Casey Anthony was in police custody when she made statements that led to her beingc onvicted of four counts of lying to law enforcement officers. Anthons attorneys are appealing the misdemeanor convictions on the grounds that her statements were inadmissible at her murder trial since she hadnt been read her Miranda rights, which warn suspects that they can remain silent and that their statements can be used against them in court. The three judges on the Fifth District Court of Appeals arent expected to rule Tuesday. Anthony was acquitted in 2 011 of murdering her 2year-old daughter,Caylee. After Caylee disappeared in the summer of 2008, Anthony told investigatorst hat a babysitter named Zenaida Gonzalez had kidnapped her daughter,that she worked at Universal Studios, that she had told co-workers about Caylees disappearance and that she had recently received a phone call from her daughter. All of the statements were lies and were the basis for her misdemeanor convictions. Anthons attorneys argued that because Anthony had been handcuffed and placed in a squad car,she was effectively under arrest and should have had her Miranda rights read to her. They alsoa rgue that her convictions on four similar charges stemming from a single encounter with police represents double jeopardy a persons con-s titutional protection from being punished multiple times for one offense. Attorneys for prosecutors argued that the trial judge was correct to allow the statements to be used. They said that Anthony only was handcuffed because her mother thought she would flee and not help them try to locate Caylee. They also noted thata supervisor ordered a detective to take the handcuffs offA nthony a few minutes later. The appellate courts decision could affect how Anthony testifies in a civil lawsuit. A woman with then ame Zenaida Gonzalez sued Anthony,claiming her reputation had been ruined. Anthony has used the pending appeal to delay questioning in the lawsuit. The trial over the lawsuit has been postponed indefinitely until the appellate court rules. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, January 9, 2013Page 3A COCHRAN BROTHERS ROOFING; 5.542"; 3"; Black; jan ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 6 6 3 3 7 7 1 1 MARTIAL ARTS (pp hand read top only; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 6 6 3 3 8 8 7 7 E.O.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK A 23year old,unemployed woman went shopping atW almart with three children Friday.They were 11, 5 and 1-year-old. The News-Sun has not established whether the womanw as the childrens mother. This is news because the woman went with no inten-t ion of paying for what she wanted to take home. Store security observed t he woman in the childrens clothing section removing p rice tags and putting clothing items into a large hand bag. O ne of the children was observed also removing a p rice tag from a pair of sandals and other items and putting them in the bag. The child proceeded to c over the clothing in the bag with a sweat shirt. The woman and three children went through check-out,paying for somei tems that were not in the bag. T hey were stopped at the exit by store security and admitted guilt on being challenged. The amount of the items in the bag came to $220.77. The woman was charged with one count of larceny,p etite theft 1st degree,first offense and one count of c ontributing to the delinquency of a minor,a first degree misdemeanor. Shew as released the next day on $750 bond; $250 for the l arceny and $500 for contributing to the delinquency of a child. Woman caught shoplifting, child an accomplice Special to the News-SunThe Southwest Florida W ater Management District is reminding residents who i rrigate their lawns to Skip aWeekor more of watering during the cooler months of January and February. A ccording to research by the University of Florida, grass doesnt need to be watered as often during the cooler months. One-half to three-quarters of an inch of water every 10 days iss ufficient. In fact,if your lawn has received any sign ificant rainfall,then you can turn off your irrigation system and operate it manually as needed. Overwatering can e ncourage pests and disease in your lawn,said Robin Grantham,Florida-Friendly Landscaping project manager. Too much irrigationc an also make lawns less able to survive droughts. Skipping a week of watering is as easy as offor residents with irrigation timers. Turn the timer to offfor the week that you want to skip,and onfor the week that you want to water,Grantham said. You can determine when your grass needs waterw hen: Grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least one-third of your yard. Grass blades appear blue-gray. Grass blades do not s pring back,leaving footprints on the lawn for seve ral minutes after walking on it. Watering only every other week at most during the winter will help con-s erve drinking water supplies that the public needs for critical uses during the dry season. In fact,if everyone skipped one week ofi rrigation this season,it could save an estimated 1.9 billion gallons of water.

C M Y K W ve done some research. According to sunshinereview.org, s tate senators and representatives are p aid $29,687 a year and are considered part time. T he regular legislative session begins on the first Tuesday after the f irst Monday in March every year. A regular session typically lasts 60 consecutive days,although it can be e xtended by a 3/5s vote in each legislat ive house. In addition to their salary,legislators r eceive a $333 per day per diem that is e arned by the number of days in the session. A 60-session per diem paym ent equals $7,980. Travel money is reimbursed,but must be substantiated. According to the Florida Retirement S ystem,it has an elected officer class. The vesting schedule is six years,but a l egislator must be 62 years old or have s erved 30 years in order to receive benefits. F or example,a four-year term S enator must win at least one re-elect ion to be vested; a two-year term representative must win two re-elections t o qualify. Florida has eight-year term l imits. In terms of the benefits,legislators g et 3 percent service credit for each year of service. T he FRS states that a typical elected o fficial serves eight years. Three percent times eight years equals 24. That i s,a retirement benefit of 24 percent of the annual salary,or $7,200 every year. Legislators are eligible for the same 2p ercent COLA as every other state employee in the system. T he health care insurance benefit to l egislators is quite generous. In the first place,part-time state e mployees do not qualify for the insurance benefit,even though part-time l egislators do. I n the second place,state elected officials qualify for the insurance upon b eing sworn in. I n the third place,the insurance is v ery inexpensive $8.34 per month for individual insurance; $30 per m onth for a family. State employees p ay roughly six or seven times that. In February 2012,Senator Joe Negron introduced an amendmentr aising the legislators contribution to b e in-line with other state employees $50 a month for individual covera ge,and $180 for a family. According to several newspaper r eports at the time,including the M iami Herald and Palm Beach Post, there was immediate opposition to the a mendment from both Democratic and R epublican legislators. B rought up in committee under the l eadership of then Senate Budget Chief J.D. Alexander,the proposed bill f ailed in a voice vote and never r eached the floor. Alexander did not have the committee members polled. S o,those are the basics. We leave it t o the reader to decide if legislators are overpaid or not. We urge anyone with time between 9 and 11 a.m. Friday,Jan. 15,drop in o n the Highlands County Delegations public meeting. Its the best way to m ake sure your elected representative is working for your tax dollars,and it is wise keep up with whatever legisla-t ive plans are floating around. Several readers convinced that some state legislators have high salaries,generous pension plans and free medical care have contacted the News-Sun asking about actual figures.

Medicare offers a fine example. T he Medicare mess began in 1965 when Lyndon Baines Johnson continued FDRs tradition of buying votes with the voters' own money:Thatsw hen LBJ signed Medicare into law. Medicare actually worked well for manyy ears when there were lots more people paying i nto the insurance program than there were Americans over 65 using it. But,like most government programs,Medicarew as too good to last. There are four reasons why. F irst,old folks dont croak anymore or at least live longer. They areh appier and healthier than ever before,as anyone w ould be who doesnt pay local taxes and gets free coffee at fast-food joints.B ut many of them receive Medicare,which is costly. Second,new medical t echnologies are expensive, which drives up Medicare c osts. These technologies are keeping people alive, which is terrific,but that has the effect of further driving up Medicare costs. O bamaCare is killing technology companies incentive to keep inventing life-saving devices it places a 2.4-percent tax on gross revenue,which equates to a massive 15-p ercent tax increase on profits but that is anothe r story for another time. The third reason Medicare costs are soaring has to do with medicali nflation,which has risen dramatically over the years. This inflation is partly due to the government pumping billions intot he medical system via Medicare. Thats right,Medicare has helped drive up the cost of Medicare. The fourth reason is the biggest driver of soaring Medicare costs:Baby boomers are retiring in big numbers. Today,about 48 million Americans are enrolled in Medicare. That number will jump to more than 80 million. This year,the federal government will spend just over $600 billion on Medicare. That number accounts for 60 percent of the federal deficit now. It will jump to $1 trillion by 2020 and continue to soar from there. In 1965,there were nearly five workers paying into the system for every p erson receiving benefits. Today,there are only three w orkers paying in for every person taking out a ratio that will drop to 2-t o-1 in 2030 when millions of baby boomers are e nrolled in the system. We are unable to meet our current obligations and are coming up $1 trillion short every year. How onE arth are we going to meet future Medicare obligat ions that are growing by leaps and bounds? Y et most of our political leaders,in particular our p resident,have not done a whit to address this very real problem. D uring his first term, President Obama established the Simpson-Bowles c ommission to identify non-partisan solutions to o ur debt and deficit crisis our real crisis and then promptly ignored it. The president and Congress took us throught his fiscal-cliff nonsense without touching the elephant in the room. So here we are,stuck on stupid,headed for certain disaster,and nobody is doing a thing to getM edicare under control before it and the other entit lement programs sink us all. Youd think that when a person casts a vote for a particular political leader,t he voter would demand that the leader lead but only a minority of American voters have any idea how frightening ourf inancial situation is. And youd think that leaders would willingly accept a crisis they are presented with during their time in office but our president is choosing to ignore the real one he is facing. That is the real crisis.

That's the number of 60watt incandescent light bulbs I purchased last weekend after learning the other kind,the compact fluorescent lights (CFLs environmentalists are so in love with,are hazardous to my health and to the environment. I would have preferred a higher wattage but discovered the 75-watt version was outlawed Jan. 1. It took about three hours to replace every CFL bulb in my house and carefully place them in a huge plastic container used to transport them to the recycling center at a local home improvement store. I said a quick prayer for safety while coasting down the road in my SUV. A HAZMAT decal would have come in handy because had I been in a collision,I had enough mercury on board to make the evening news. And because I am a Conservative, they might have labeled me a home-grown terrorist. CFLs arent all there cracked up to be. Back in 2008,some Yale University scientists isolated CFLs benefits down to one:lower energy bills. The scientists questioned whether a little savings was worth the danger attached to mercury exposure and runoff downstream. Besides making the environment sick,researchers recently discovered these environmentally friendly light bulbs aren't friendly to humans either. According to the UK Telegraph,CFLs should not be left on for extended periods,particularly near someones head because they emit poisonous materials when switched on.The report found those carcinogenic substances should be kept as far away as possible from the human environmentbecause they may cause migraines,skin problems and breast cancer. Great. It really makes no sense. Somehow its OK to have mercury housed in delicate glass bulbs inside every home in America,yet the EPA feels compelled to enact new regulations like the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) limiting mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants promising MATS would raise kidsIQs,prevent a substantial amount of premature deaths,reduce heart attacks,and lessen childhood asthma. Id settle for weight control and whiter teeth. Sounds wonderful. Problem is,the EPAs logic is about as twisted as a CFL, considering most people don't live next to a coal-fired plant,but every home in America using CFLs is at risk of mercury exposure. They say the pricey CFLs are cost efficient,but fail to mention their measure for efficiency decreases if the bulbs are switched on and off. Nor do they discuss the outrageous price per bulb or the gas usage (carbon footprint) involved in transporting old bulbs. They also fail to factor in human nature; most people will simply discard old bulbs instead of spending their Saturday driving to the recycling center. Seems to me,enacting the most expensive EPA rule revision in history,MATS, has less to do with people and more to do with coalfired plants. Back in January 2012,the Washington Times said the rule will cost power plants up to $18 billion a year and will be passed directly to consumers.ve always believed Progressives love the planet but hate the people who live on it. Think about it. They are quick to condemn environmental violators but conveniently ignore the massive amounts of mercury Mother Nature herself spews out by way of volcanoes,deep-sea vents and geysers. Maybe we should tax the planet,just for good measure. According to Power Engineering Magazine,by 2016,EPA rules will force the shutdown of mostly coal-fired power plantsin 12 states,and possibly 36 others. The shutdowns will lead to higher power costs, less jobs,and potential rationing. Before long,well be rubbing sticks together to cook food,stay warm,and find our way to the community outhouse. But,in the meantime ... tonight I celebrate. I purged my home of all those hazy mercury-filled bulbs and I'm switching on every last one of my incandescent bulbs to celebrate in hopes the Google Earth satellite will drift my way and snap a picture. My house will be one of the brightest spots on the planet,second only to Al Gores.

A s part of that plan, employees will not accrue sick time as they do currently. It also will permit employees to sell backupt o a weeks worth of paid time to the county for cash. T hat money already has been budgeted. Funding fort he current round of early payout for earned annual leave will come from the compensated absences f unding allocation. As of Tuesdays meeting,there w as a balance of $1,646,452 in the fund. When fully implemented, the sell-back program would be designedto comen ear the end of the calendar year,when workers would have to decide whether they wanted the time off,or were more interested in taking a payout instead. Resident Dick Noel told c ommissioners to be cautious in implementing such a program,pointing tohousing foreclosures as a h arbinger of declining tax revenue with which to w ork. Be sure the private sector and the taxpayers are watched out for as well,he said. E lwell agreed,responding that this was already money earned by the employees,has been 100 percent funded,and there would be no additional negative impact to the budget.

Local woman held in St. Lucie County jail for absconding children Lyons By CURT ANDERSON AP Legal Affairs WriterMIAMI A third prison i nmate has testified that a Florida woman admitted killing a young foster child who went missing more than a decade ago. R amona Tavia testified Tuesday that 66-year-old G eralyn Graham tearfully admitted the killing while the two shared a cell in 2 003. Tavia says Graham said she did it to protect her l ive-in lover Pamela Graham. Geralyn Graham faces life in prison if convicted of killing 4-year-old RilyaW ilson,whose body has never been found. Two other i nmates also testified that Graham either confessed or provided details of the girls d eath. The states case is likely t o wrap up later Tuesday or Wednesday. The defense will begin with testimony from investigators who were unable tof ind Rilyas remains or any forensic evidence. Its u ncertain if Graham will testify. Third inmate says Florida woman admitted killing girl By BRETT BARROUQUERE A ssociated PressL OUISVILLE,Ky. Caren Brooks has reason to be hopeful about her daughters unsolved slaying two decades after someones lashed and stabbed her to death in a central Kentucky field. Police in Kentucky are now investigating whether a serial killer imprisoned inF lorida could be connected to the killing of 22-year-old Valeri Brooks in Versailles. e just want the right person caught,said Caren Brooks of New Haven,Conn. We want it to be done,but we want it to be the right pers on. It doesnt do anybody any good if it isnt the right person. V ersailles Assistant Police Chief James Fugate said i nvestigators were looking into whether there were connections between Brooks and 50-year-old Glen Edward Rogers,a man dubbed the Cross-Country Killerwho has relatives near Versailles. I nvestigators plan to compare RogersDNA on file in Florida to evidence fromB rooksslaying. Rogers is awaiting execution for the f atal stabbing of Tina Cribbs, a 34-year-old mother of two whom he met at a Tampa bari n November 1995. Rogers spent time in the area around Brooksdeath, h as family around there and was convicted of killing o ther women. A 2012 documentary about him also piqued authoritiesinterest. Fugate declined to give further specifics about theiri nvestigation. Rogers has also been convicted of murder in California and is a suspect in homicides in Mississippi, Louisiana and Kentucky. Rogers,in a letter to The Associated Press,saidK entucky State Police or prosecutors can arrange a phone call with him in prison and he will clear up any questions they may have,w ith FACTS on record. No,I dont have a clue whats going on in KY, Rogers wrote. Separate from the Brooks i nvestigation,FBI agents also recently asked the Kentucky State Police to help them find the Rogers family cemetery near Beattyville. Kentucky StateP olice Sgt. Rick SaintBlancard and Trooper Paul B lanton said they found the cemetery and notified the FBI of its location,but haveh ad no further contact with the agency about it. A s pokesman for the FBI in Louisville did not return messages from The Associated Press. In the documentary,called My Brother the Serial Killer,the inmates brother C lay Rogers said he wants to know if any slaying victims are buried at the familyg raveyard. During the documentary,Clay Rogers n oticed the dirt is all loose in part of the cemetery. Glen told me the best way t o get rid of a body is find a fresh dug grave,move the dirt over,put the body into it a nd nobody ever know its there,Clay Rogers said. A ttempts by The Associated Press to locate Clay Rogers,who once lived near Beattyville,were unsuccessful. R ogersvictims were women he had met in bars while drifting across the country. Both were stabbed to death,much like Brooks. With blazing blue eyes,a scraggly beard and long, blond hair,Rogers wasa rrested in November 1995, near Waco,Ky.,after a nationwide manhunt and a 100 mph chase. The slaying of Brooks has l ong stumped police and frustrated Brooksfamily. Valeris brother,Michael Brooks,who lives in southwestern Connecticut,hasb een critical of the Versailles Police Department from the beginning. In 1996,Kentucky police inadvertently tested the DNA of the wrong person,aT ennessee death row inmate with a name to similar R ogers. Michael Brooks called that move incompetent,buts aid the family is open to the concept that Glen Rogers k illed his sister. ve entertained every possible idea of whats going on,Brooks said. Kristin Powell of V ersailles,who is married to Valeri Brooksoldest son, m et with police earlier this month about the interest in Rogers after the family prod-d ed the department for information about the case. P owell said the family is still waiting on answers about what happened somethingt he police said they are still working on. A lot of it is,it isnt even w orth convicting him because hes already on d eath row,Powell said. We hope its him,though. We can finally get a little bit of closure.

H ospital directors learned of the new policy,which takes effect Jan. 14,in a Saturday meeting with Health Minister Roberto Morales and word of the change was relayed in hospital staffm eetings,according to the doctor,who attended one of the subsequent gatherings. The ministers directive:A doctor will be treated like any other citizen starting now and can exit freely,as longa s the destination country allows itby issuing an entry visa,said the physician, w ho spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to foreign journalists. Apparently it has been completely repealed,he said. No restrictions of a ny kind. Another doctor confirmed that she had been told of the new policy. For many years Cuban doctors have been limited in their ability to travel or had to undergo cumbersome bureaucrat-i c procedures. They are routinely denied permission to travel or receive it only if they plan to leave for good and after a five-year process of being released from their duties. T he restrictions were justified as necessary to prevent brain drain from a sector that is the pride of Cubas Communist leaders,and which lost thousands of skilled professionals in the1 960s as the country increasingly embraced socialism following the Cuban Revolution. Many more left during the economic crisis of the 1990s. Other individuals in strategic occupations such as scientists,military officersa nd athletes have also had a hard time getting permission to travel. I n October,authorities announced the end of the widely detested exit visa known as the white card,which ford ecades was required of any Cuban seeking to travel overseas. The reform a lso extended to two years the amount of time Cubans can stay abroad without losing their full rights as citizens. The United States offers special refugee status to Cuban doctors who defect from international missions inV enezuela and other countries something the island government calls theft of talent. The new policy on health care workers applies to both those seeking to emi-g rate and those simply wanting to travel as tourists or to visit family overseas. The rules may not result in an immediate,massive exodus of medical workers to Miami. Most would not be able tot ravel there without a U.S. visa, although some who enjoy dual Spanish citizenship could get around that requirement. They told us they did a study and found that a high percentage of doctorsw ho go abroad (on missions or for conferences) return to the country,so they d ont have a reason to restrict medical personnel,the doctor said. According to government statistics, t he island had 265,000 health care workers last year,including 78,000 doctors.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Two recentl y missed short birdie putts w ere in the back of her mind. Not to mention that this was a relatively new putter that Tennessee senior Erica Popson held in her hand as she sized up the remaining eight feet of the 18th hole. B ut she wiped the bad memories away and the stroke stayed true for Popson to win the 58th Harder Hall Womens Invitational Sunday. Id been struggling with my putter and started with a new one a couple of weeks ago, the Ridge Community High School grad said afterward. I missed two short putts on 15 and 16, whichw as nerve wracking, but it definitely showed some spark on the last hole. As did Popson herself as s he made the turn onto the back nine one-shot back of 1 3-year old Mika Liu, who had held the lead since her o pening-round 66 on Thursday. P opson then seized the lead on the 11th hole when her birdie offset Lius bogey. The lead held, despite the two missed putts when the pair got to the par-5 17th. Having laid up short of the water with her second shot, Liu stuck her approach to within two feet, all but assuring herself the birdie she would soon make. Lay up is not in my vocabulary, Popson said of the choice she had been faced with on the hole. Her second shot found the green, though rolled onto the back fringe. But a great lag putt put her just a couple of feet away to maintain the lead with a birdie. And while the pressure might have been building heading onto the final hole, Liu had a good reason not to feel it. I didnt know the scores, she said. I like to keep a silent mind so I try not to know the score and just stay focused on hittinga good shot. Both were on the par-4 18th in two, with Lius ball about twice the distance from the cup as Popsons. But the braces-adorned smile soon flashed brightly as the 15-footer made its way toward and into the hole, forcing a potential tie and playoff hole. Which Popson cleared from her mind and soon put to rest, sinking her putt fora final-round 68 for a 282 total and the one-stroke win. Exciting as the chase and finish was, perhaps the highlight of the tournament came a little earlier Sunday when Sebrings Kendall Griffin aced the par-3 12th hole. It was 168 yards to a front pin and I hit my new Mizuno 3 hybrid, the 13year old explained. The pin was kind of tucked behind the left bunker. When I hit it and saw it flying I though it was gonna be close and then it just Special to the News-SunAVON PARK South Florida State College Athletic Director and Head B aseball Coach Rick Hitt was recently selected to serve as president of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAAs Baseball Coaches Association.

SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, January 9, 2013 N ASCAR This Week4B Special to the News-SunSEBRING More than 130 pickleball players from Central Florida descended upon Tanglewood for the Winter Classic Tournament held Saturday Jan., 5 and Sunday, Jan. 6. The tournament, sponsored by Alan J. Holmes of Edward Jones and the Alan Jay Automotive Network was a rated tournament. This means that the players were grouped according to their ability levels and not by age. Players can be self-rated by comparing ones own ability to a published set of criteria. Ratings can also be determined by a players performance in tournaments. Ratings go from a relative beginner at 2.5 to an extremely skilled player at level 5.0. In Ladiesand Mens Doubles action on Saturday, the inclement weather Thursday and Friday had organizers worried. On Friday they had to dry off the courts and tape six pickleball courts on the two existing tennis courts to have a total of 10 courts in use. Saturday morning, the sun shone brightly and the mens and ladiesdoubles competitions ran smoothly. Players aged 40 to 81 took to the courts, playing 103 matches. Due to a lack of teams at the highest level of the ladiescompetition, both 5.0 and 4.5 competed together. The 5.0 gold went to a team from The Villages/Naples, while 4.5 gold was taken by a team from Tampa/Fort Myers and the silver was won by Tanglewoods Diane Reynolds and Debbie Yandell. In 4.0 competition, medals were won by teams from The Villages, Sola Vita and North Fort Myers. Medalists at the 3.5 level hailed from Fort Myers, Thousand Trails and Riverbend. The medals at the 3.0 skill level were swept by Tanglewood teams. Betty Schleis and Cheryl McCullough combined for the gold, Bonnie Schmidt and Barb Thulin were paired for the silver while Tracy Vernest and Barb Miachika took home the bronze. The mens competition was finished under the lights Saturday night with the 4.5 gold and silver medals being captured by teams from Summerfield and bronze going to a Sola Vita/Villages pairing.

And apparently it just rolled in, it didn't l ike hit the pin and go in. And I did see it go in! This is Griffins second ever hole in one but, according to her, this was my first hole in one in a tourney Having taken second place in last years Second Flight, Griffin played well enough to stay in the Championship Flight this time around. Her total score of 302 for the week was well off the lead for the title, but would have tied her for first in the F irst Flight and was 27 s trokes better than a year ago. Kelsey McDonald wound up third in the Championship Flight, with a four-day total of 285. Ashlan Ramsey finished fourth at 286, Hannah Pietila fifth at 287, JiaXin Yang sixth at 288, Yueer Cindy Feng seventh at 289 and Ashleigh Albrecht eighth at 290. Saturday surges Two days of less than ideal weather gave way to a nice Saturday, with light breezes and warm conditions, the potential for scoring was there on the third day of the 58th Harder Hall Womens Invitational. A mong the front runners, t here was some scoring indeed, which only added to the drama heading into the final day. Co-leaders Mika Liu and Erica Popson went back and forth between the front and back nine, with Popsen carding a 35 to Lius 36 on the front to take a one-stroke lead. But Liu made the turn and went for a one-under 35 on the back, while Popson fell two back with a 38. Hannah Pietila, two back when the day began, made a push with dueling 35s to squeeze into second place, just one shot back of Liu heading into Sunday. JiaXin Yang came in with a 71 and found herself three shots off the lead, while Ashlan Ramsey held an evenp ar 72 to join her at one u nder and three back. Kelsey McDonald also went for a one-under 71 and remained the four shots back that she started the day at. Making the big run on the day was 2011 champion Ashleigh Albrecht, who started the day seven back and almost out of viable contending range. But she solved her front nine dilemma, where she had carded a 40 and 41 on her first two days, coming intot he turn with a 35. And she carried that hot play over to the back where she sank an eagle putt on 17 that helped toward a 34 for a 69 on the day, inching her to within five shots and earninga spot in the second-to-last group on Sunday. It only took me what, two days to figure out that frontn ine, Albrecht said sardonically after her round. But f inally everything started clicking and Ive gotten m yself into the next-to-last group and within range. Continued from 1B Harder sees another thrilling chase

C M Y K By TAYLOR TUBBS N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Senior night is a time for last chances and saying good-bye to a high school sport. The Sebring girls got to do j ust that at Firemens Field on Monday night when they took on their county rival, the Lake Placid Lady Dragons. A lthough both teams battled throughout the entire g ame, the score would end in f avor of the Streaks 1-0. The increased energy on the field was evident during the game with the amount of physical contact and the desire to win displayed so strongly by both teams. Early on in the game both teams had offensive charges. Blue Streak forward Lacey Watson charged a ball that was headed towards the goal, and Mary Grace Bates of Lake Placid had a similar attempt less than a minute later. The Dragons goalie, Tamija D ouglas, had a number of good saves throughout the night, as the Streaks offense was keeping her busy. D estiny McCartney of Sebring had a shot on goal t hat was recovered by the k eeper. Watson had another running goal attempt that was blocked by Lake Placid defender Jasmine Molina. At the 27-minute mark Sebring had another close call to scoring off of a corner kick, but the Lake Placid defenders were able to clear the ball back into Streak territory. Heather Bloemsma took a shot on goal from a penalty kick in the midfield that was also recovered by Douglas before it hit paydirt. Lake Placid saw a strong o ffensive attempt in the final two minutes of the first half. Bates made an assist to Chelsea Whitmires shot that w as scooped up by the Sebring keeper, Shannon B loemsma. G oing into the half, the score remained tied 0-0, despite the strong efforts by both teams. The back and forth continued for nearly the entire game until a Sebring offensive player was finally able to break through the Dragons defense. In a twist on Senior Night, it was sophomore Haylee Peters who scored the only goal of the night, but it was all that was needed to give Sebring the victory. Lake Placid is a good rival game, said Mariana Becker of Sebring. Its always tough and exciting game againstt hem. So the Streaks end their Senior Night, and Christmas Break, on a high note. B oth teams returned back to school on Tuesday and will r esume their usual practice and game schedules. T he Sebring girls play at Hardee Thursday night, while Lake Placid was at Clewiston Tuesday and host Okeechobee Friday to close out the regular season. Both squads then head into t heir respective district tournaments next week, with the Streaks at Winter Haven Monday against Auburndale at 6 p.m. in the District 13-3A tilt and the Dragons playing h ost to the District 10-2 A tournament and facing the winner of Mondays DeSoto, Avon Park contest Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, January 9, 2013Page 5B S PRINGLAKE GOLF RESORT* NEW; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 1/2,9,16,23,30; 00026451 DUMMY 2013; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; special stars tourny; 00026498 UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 1/9/13; 00026507 taken by a team from Englewood, the silver medalists were from North Port and Tanglewoods own Wayne Buck and Jimmy Maynard captured bronze.

In the 4.5 flight, gold went to a Summerfield team with a duo fromValencia Lakes taking silver The bronze medal was captured by Debbie Yandell and Johnnie McKinney of Tanglewood.

S coreboard By PETER SVENSSON AP Technology WriterL AS VEGAS Dish Network Corp. revealed a set-top box called Hopper last year,named for its ability to send the TV signal hoppingfrom room to room,covering all the TVs in the house. This year,its upgrading the Hopper so that it follows you wherever you go even outside the house. The new all-in-one digital v ideo recorder and set-top box,revealed Monday at a p ress conference ahead of the International CES trade show in Las Vegas,is adorned with the same kangaroo logo and can transfer recorded TVs hows or movies to an iPad for viewing any time. Dish is the first cable or satellite company to offer such a feature. It may raisee yebrows in Hollywood and among the TV networks that supply the satellite broadcaster with programming because it could dig into the extra revenue they get from sales of content for offline viewing through iTunes. Dish is already fighting suits from Fox and NBC over the automatic ad-skipping feature it introduced with the first Hopper. Legally speaking,to say youre in novel territory is probably an understatement, said Scott Flick,an intellectual-property lawyer at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman in Washington. However,legal challenges to the transfer feature could be stymied by the fact that the stored movies and shows are under the control of the viewer the whole time,Flick said. In other words,the system is not much different from a VCR that lets a consumer tape a show and then bring the tape along for viewing elsewhere. e always stand with the consumer. That means sometimes well have lawsuits, Dish CEO Joe Clayton said in an interview ahead of the show. The transfer of stored content only works in the home, with an iPad connected via Wi-Fi to the same Internet router as the Hopper. Dish is planning to bring the feature to other devices as well. The new Hopper can also transmit liveTV programming to iPads,iPhones, Android phones and computers,even outside the home. New Dish box sends TV shows hopping to iPad

He apologized to me and to his supervisor,said it wasa n error in judgmentand promised it would never happen again. L ast week I found an email he had sent to anothe r former student,and the things he said to her were disgusting. The current onei s a student,too. I have a nice home and m y husband is good to me except for his wandering eye. He gives me anythingI want and takes me with him whenever he travels.B ut he is a Jekyll and Hyde when it comes to a c omputer and young girls all younger than his daughter,I might add. I know if this gets back to his boss hell be fired. H s a brilliant man and an excellent teacher. So what do I do? I have considered d oing nothing,and if he gets caught let him suffer the consequences. Or,I can confront him and try to get him to see a counselorb efore he ruins his career, and makes me a laughingstock of the community. Wre financially comfortable and I hate to givei t up,but I dont want to live the rest of my life like t his,either. Any suggestions would be appreciat-e d. Not Laughing In Washington State Dear Not Laughing In Washington State Dear Not Laughing: Y our husband has a serious problem. He is playing Russian roulette with his career and its only a matter of time until he actsi nappropriately with the wrong student. If you love him at all, confront him and insist that he talk to a counselor and learn to strengthen his impulse control. When his activities become public knowledge,as is sure to happen,you wont be the laughingstock of the community,but your husband will be scorned and jobless. If you want to protect your lifestyle as well as your husbands female students,insist he get professional help now. Dear Abby: Im a divorced empty nester who would like to meet a nice man to spend time with. Im attractive,slim and active. A year and a half ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 b reast cancer. I have excellent medical care and my doctor is optimistic. She told me she hast reated many women who have survived 10 years and are still doing fine. I intend to do every-t hing in my power to be one of those women. I have tried meeting men o n the Internet or through groups I belong to. I explain on the first datea bout my health issues because I dont want anyo ne to think Im dishonest. Unfortunately,several men I would have liked to see a gain told me flat-out that they cant deal with the c ancer thing. I dont want to spend the rest of my life however long it may be alone. Should I wait to tell a mana bout my illness until weve seen each other a f ew times? Or should I continue as I have,and hope I eventually finds omeone with enough compassion willing to take t he chance? Healthy Now in Wisconsin Dear Healthy Now: C ompassion? How about someone intelligent enough to grasp that nobody has a guarantee about how long someonew ill live including him? The appropriate time to discuss your medical history is after you have gotten to know someone welle nough that you can talk frankly about it,and the r elationship is beyond casual. First dates do notf all into that category. No man who cares about you would ever walk away. And any man who would isnt worth having,so con-s ider yourself lucky.

The new year. A time to reflect on theyear were leaving behind and make promises to ourselves about how wemay live better for the next 12 months. If,when the clock struck 12 on Monday night,you made someresolutions that involved living a healthier life in 2013,I want tomake sure that you start out nice and slow so that you dont get alloverwhelmed,with your good intentions discarded by the timeValentines Day rolls around. When you resolve to live healthier and youre starting out with alifestyle that has lots of room for cleaning up, there are tons oftiny changes you can implement that will add up to greater health foryou by this time next year. If you know me at all,you know Im about keeping things simple. Sothats where well start. The following are five simple things you canstart doing today that will make you and your family healthier: 1. Get friendly with vegetables. You dontlike leafy green and/ordark colored vegetables? Too bad. You have to eat them anyway.Vegetables are key in weight management and we need them to makeourselves healthy and to get in all of those nutrients and mineralsthat are essential for our bodies. If you think that peas and carrotsare enough,you are sadly mistaken. Sure they count as veggies,but weneed a diet varied in fruits and vegetables in order to get what weneed out of the foods we eat. The next time you go to the grocerystore,shop the rainbow. Buy purple cabbage,dark green spinach orkale instead of regular green cabbage and ice berg lettuce. Fill yourcart with sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. Try a newvegetable every time you go to the grocery store and do some researchon Google to figure out the best way to cook it. Vegetables are notonly full of nutrients that fight disease,but they aid in yourdigestion process (can you say fiber?),they fill you up withoutloading you up with calories,and they just make you feel good. Trainyourself and your children to like vegetables. Its the best thing youcan do for your familys health. 2. Add one new healthy food to your diet each month. Hearing about allthe health benefits of coconut oil lately? Resolve to incorporate itinto your diet this month. Next month,perhaps youll want to givesalmon a good honest try. Start eating f lax in March. Swap sugar forhoney in April. You see where Im going with this. Slowly startincorporating super foods into your diet and by this time next year,youll be laughing. Also,vowing to add one new food per month is lessoverwhelming than trying to do it all at once . its all aboutbaby steps. Every Friday,I feature a different healthy food onthe blog. Search through the archives and keep your eyes peeled forlots and lots (and lots!) of ideas. 3. Drink more water. This one is key. I believe that if we all ate sixor seven servings of vegetables a day and drank our daily recommendedamount of good old fashioned H20,we would be a much healthier (andleaner) nation. If youre not a water lover,too bad. You have todrink it anyway. How do you figure out how much water you need to behealthy? There are calculators all over the Internet that will helpyou determine your hydration needs based on your weight and activitylevels,so do a simple search and you should soon know your optimalwater intake. One important piece of advice is to pace yourself. Dontdrink all of your water in the morning or before bed. Spread it outover the day and just drink drink drink! Water is the ideal beveragefor all of us. Swap out the juices and sodas for this simple thirstquencher. 4. Cut out packaged foods. Stop buying processed foods and resolve tocook all meals for your family from scratch. T his will likely be theone item on this list that makes the most folk cringe,but it is animportant one. I wish that everyone could experience the joy thatcomes with putting a nutritious,homemade meal on the dinner tableevery day. Start by not buying anymore of those helpermeal kitsfrom the dry food aisle as well as the frozen meals from the freezersections of the grocery store. These are highly processed foods, chockfull of GMOS,chemicals,sodium and other ingredients that nobodywithout a science degree can pronounce. Shop the perimeter of thegrocery store and make meals from the vegetables and meats that you buy. 5. Stop baking. Have a weakness for cookies? Quit baking them. Have atendency to sit down to a couple of muffins every time you bake abatch? How about not baking them anymore? I see these recipes all overthe place for healthy muffins,paleo-friendly cookies,gluten-free,sugarfree,dairy-free desserts,andI have to ask myself . why?Our diets should be based on high quality vegetables,lean meats,poultry and fish. Do you really need another muffin? Snack on nuts,fruit,eggs,raw vegetables and berries. There you have it. Follow these five little nuggets of information andby the time 2014 rolls around,youll be feeling amazingly healthy andresolving to never go back to that old lifestyle ever again. Making resolutions you can live with. Really! Dinner Diva Leanne Ely The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN

C M Y K Hope everyone enjoyed the New Year,I had dinnero ut and then went to a local tavern and had a great time d ancing with my fianc. This week I want to write about some of the diets we work with at the hospital. First of all,the diets that area ssigned to a patient are viewed upon just like a pres cription and are not to be changed unless authorized by the doctor who pre-s cribed it. So when you receive your meals and if it d idnt have everything you asked for it was because it was not allowable due to thed iets assigned to you. The most common diets we see are cardio and diab etic. These make up the majority of the orders that w e produce each meal period. If you find yourself on a cardio diet you will receive foods with lighter amountso f sodium and the dishes will be seasoned with fresh herbs and salt alternatives. The diabetic diet will have no sugar-added items and foods with less starch because some starches willt urn into sugar once consumed. So try and eat sugarf ree gelatin and puddings instead of that bowl of butter pecan after dinner. I must say that after working with these diets for justo ver a year now I find myself using less salt and try to skip dessert. I was never big on eating desserts anyway,but I did love toa dd salt to everything. I hope this quick overview has helped you to understand a little more about some of the diets we work with. This week I have a fun breakfast recipe that Im sure all will enjoy.
