The museum is gearing up for an exciting new year with the unveiling of it newest exhibit in conjunction with celebrating its 22nd year anniver-s ary today. Founder of the museum Linda Crowder has been working diligently over the past month to keep the newest addition to the museumu nder wraps. After weeks of prepping and fine tuning,Crowder is now ready to show it off; the Cracker Crops and Cows exhibit is ready for guests to enjoy. The Cracker Crops and Cows exhibit has been a project Crowder has wanted to do for many years. Childrens Museum of the Highlands unveils new exhibit on 22nd anniversary Cracker Crops and Cows News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS Kids will be able to have a hands-on experience of milking a mechanical cow at the new Cracker Crops and Cows exhibit in the Childrens Museum. By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comS EBRING City council members unanimously passed a consent a genda item Tuesday evening that appropriated the funds for the demolition of the retaining wall that sur-r ounds Gingerlee Mitchelllindos property at 503 E. Center Ave. A fter a very lengthy dispute,the city has been granted permission by the courts to demolish the wall. I n late November,Mitchelllindo filed for a temporary injunction against the City of Sebring,Civil S urv Engineering and Highlands County. Mitchelllindo hoped that o nce granted,the injunction would allow her time to file her many civil cases against the city,engineeringf irm,the county and other individuals involved with the initial surveying of her wall. Assistant City Administrator Bob Hoffman spoket o the News-Sun last week,describing the next steps in the Citys plan r egarding the wall. The council approved the appropriation of funds from the citys contingency fund at Tuesday nights meeting,Hoffman said. A fter bids were sent in and looked over by city staff,Excavation Point was hired to do the project last week. The court order allows them to g o in and slope the land to get it at the right level after the wall is taken down,Hoffman said. The engineering company out of Polk County,Civil Surv,will supervise the project. They will stabilize the wall that remains so that they can slope it to keep any land out of city City OKs funding for wall demolition Wall at Center and Orange has been p oint of controversy M itchelllindo By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING John and April Hill planned their son Trays homecoming from Afghanistan with military precision. They briefed their troops,delegated essential tasks and made sure to synchronize all watches. Operation Welcome Home Tray code named Surprise Party is to be a day their son will always remember. The objective is to gather a large,enthusiastic crowd and create a loud,heartfelt greeting. Expected time of arrival in Sebring:2:30 p.m. John and Elenor Delegarde are on duty early at the house. April calls to warn them Trays plane is running late on account of bad weather. He wont land in Orlando until about 3:30 p.m. By 2:30 p.m. most of the greeters have arrived at the house. Most had never met Tray, a specialist in the U.S. Army,but know about him through John and April. Those who know him are old family friends. John Ash,for example, has been Aprils client for about 14 years. Im meeting him for the first time,Ash said,ut I know the stories and seen his photos. She talks about him all the time.

C M Y K Cooking contest organize rs take note:This it. I am turning in my knife and fork and retiring as a cookingj udge as of Jan. 1,2013. Choosing between favorite family recipes is simply too r isky,too difficult,too fattening for me to continue. A nd I seem to be doing more of it. No sooner had I run the gauntlet of appetizers and side dishes at the Avon Park Youth Academy,thenF red Leavitt,president of the Heartland Cultural Alliance, asked if I would judge a dessert contest part of a celebration marking the opening of the new local artists gallery,with its owne ntrance,at the Kenilworth Lodge. H ere are some of the reasons I am stepping down. The taste theme at the consortiums reception was chocolate. From a light,a lmost frothy icing on a Yule log to a half-inch of rich fudge topping squares of cake,every dessert burst with flavor and sugar. Again,I was faced with having to decide one taste or texture over another. These selections were all first rate,but for me,chocolate desserts tend to run together in terms of taste. The sugar buzz made concentration even harder. In any case,you try making a decision between rocky road bars or iced pumpkin cookies,especially when the cooks are w atching your everym ove, every express ion on your face. T here are other difficulties as well. B eautiful women come up to you with entrancing smiles, making you feel like the only man in the room. Then,just when you think you have met the mother of your children,these womeni nevitably point to one plate or another a decorated c ake,fudge brownies or raspberry bars and say, Why dear me,dont those just smell and look divine? Why Im sure my poor effortw ill never match those.And bats her eyes. Beautiful women,you learn the hard way,are not to be trusted. T hen there are the feelings of buyers remorse after you have chosen what you thought tasted best no matter how much you enjoyed it. What about No. 2,you find yourself thinking,or those deceptively simple chocolate chip cookies that turned out to linger on the tongue. Werent they just as good? Then there are the unusual e thical issues. For example, William Oliviveri entered amazing pastries lookingl ike photos right out of Bon Appetite.Turns out he is a professional with a shop at 3 029 U.S. 27 N. As the judge,it was my responsibili ty to disqualify him because everyone else was an amateur. After all that,come to find out the raspberrys quares I finally named the winner were made by Gail Leavitt,wife of Fred the host of the event. No. From now on Ill leave it to others to carry on with the spork. A s for Thursdays reception at the Kenilworth,havi ng tasted every entry,I can tell those of you who did not make the party,you missed a treat. Fortunately,the new art g allery showcasing local work is a permanent installation.

Lt. Gus Garcia, with the HCSO, was present. Dont hesitate to contact us, he said, if you have any questions or concerns. A fter the opening of two exhibits that showcase the local communities biggest cultural aspects,Crowder has added the third piece to the puzzle. ve had this in my head for about 15 years,Crowder s aid. I wanted to show the t hree big parts of the H eartland culture when I f irst started this museum. ve had the citrus exhibit, we have the race car exhibit; all that was missing was agriculture. The Cracker Crops and C ows exhibit central element is an interactive electronic cow used to teach children the many parts of Heartland a griculture. Throughout the exhibit,children can learn the many sides to agriculture. A strawberry station, chicken,egg gathering,pro-d uce cultivation and much more are all a part of the n ew exhibit. Getting the last part of the p uzzle wasnt an easy task however. Crowder has been w orking on less than a shoestring budget for quite some time. With the economy in such a declined state,it has been even more difficult for Crowder to get needed funding for the improvement and upkeep of the museum. Crowder thought of different versions of the new exhibit to save on some of the expense. I thought at first that Id do everything except for the cow; I just couldnt afford the total price. The cow alone was $7,500,the shipping was $1,200 and I just couldnt get that last bit, Crowder said. Luckily,the New Hampshire-based company that makes the electronic cow had a convention to attend in Orlando and was able to waive the shipping fee and allowed Crowder to pick up the device herself. Crowder was thrilled to save m oney on shipping. or 22 years,ve wanted to provide a place where kids can learn and play and interact,but now the fundingt o keep this going is just about nonexistent,Crowder said. Its very frustrating, but I keep going. The smiles on the kids faces when theya re here keeps me going. Between the many visitors,summer camps,and fundraisers,the Childrens Museum of the Highlands manages to stay afloat. Crowder also finds unique ways to incorporate local businesses,families and individuals into the museum for a small costs. or this exhibit we have the Cracker House wall panels that people are able to purchase. Their names will be engraved on the boarding of the house for everyone to see,Crowder said. The boarding panels are on sale for $500 each and have a 15-letter limit. The money raised through the Cracker House panels will be used in the upkeep of the museum. With nearly 30 exhibits and interactive stations,the Childrens Museum is a great place for kids and adults to visit. It is the only o ne of its kind throughout the Heartland and has visitors from elementary schools in six counties between the months of January and Junee ach year. I never dreamed wed have over 23,000 visitors each year. Thats big; theres so many people who enjoyb eing here and coming here ... 22 years ago I wanted to do an interactive learning place for kids. I wanted to highlight the culture of the Heartland and Central Florida and with this last piece of the puzzle Im doing that. Im very excited about this,Crowder said. The Cracker Crops and Cows exhibit will open to the public on Wednesday. On that day,the Childrens Museum will also celebrate its 22nd year anniversary. The Childrens Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday; the museum is closed Sunday and Monday. Admission price is $4 per person and $2 per person on Thursdays after 5 p.m. For more information,to donate or to purchase a Cracker House panel,contact Crowder at 385-5437.

B ennett became suddenly available because he recently lost his seat as elected states chool superintendent in Indiana,an outcome that he h imself attributes at least partially to union opposition. So there is no reason to expect a management-labor honeymoon period as he takes overi n Tallahassee. But never mind Bennetts personal convictions or hisr elationship with organized labor. We just hope he brings t o the job a more inclusive management style than his predecessors. A s we have written before, Tallahassees frequent,and e mbarrassing,releases of inaccurate student assessment data,flawed teacher assessment scores,skewed school grades and so on is asm uch a consequence of the D epartment of Educations top-down management style as anything else. For the most part,repeated requests by Alachua Countys Dan Boyda nd his fellow school superintendents for a more collaborative relationship with DOE have fallen on deaf ears,with predictable consequences. T hat sort of institutional arrogance,unfortunately,has b een the rule rather than the exception for far too long. And thats what we hopeB ennett will work to reverse. If Bennett can establish a m ore productive relationship between DOE and the school districts,then that will be a very pleasant surprise indeed. A n editorial from the Gainesville Sun. Bennett has work cut out for him Is no surprise that Tony Bennett, Floridas newly hired education commissioner,would be bullish on testing, vouchers and charter schools,or that the states largest teacher union would object to his appointment. God bless the new little angelsEditor: The filthy game of polit icsusing a tragedy to play on the minds and heads of t he American people is criminal. The hearts of all Americans goes out to thev ictims and their families and their new little angels, t o push gun control schemes on a free nation that needs the right to bear arms to keep ones children free. God has just called His litt le ones home to be with Him this Christmas. The families have given the Supreme Gift to the Supreme Commandant and H is only Son to be with His family this holiday season. G od bless our new little angels. Billie E. Jewett S ebringShame is absent in our societyEditor: Thinking about shame I have recently been thinking about the absence of shame in our society. It began while I watched people standing in line to vote in some Florida polling places and it returned when I heard the news about the most recent slaughter of school children. I heard shocked people saying they could not understand why someone would kill firstgraders. Yet,the vast majority of people with mental problems do not kill and in other developed nations, mass killings of school children are very rare. The number of gun-related deaths in schools is horrific but small when compared to the annual 30,000 deaths by guns in our country.What is shocking to me is the real insanity that we still make it so easy for killers to arm themselves. The pictures of those children in Newtown should cause national shame. The first to admit their shame would be the gun industry, the NRA,the cowardly members of Congress who support the NRA and those who send dues to the NRA to help its lobbying efforts, which ultimately make it easy for the mentally ill to get guns. Finally,all of us who voted for elected officials who support the NRA should feel shame if we have not contacted our representatives to notify them that we are withdrawing our support and our vote until sane gun control is enacted. Equally shameful was F loridas attempt at voter s uppression. Aspiring voters in several u rban areas that were likely to vote Democratic faced p ainful voter suppression b arriers. Elderly people could not stand in the hot sun for several hours and parents had to leave to care for children. This unAmerican legislative action was enacted by Floridas governor and its Republicancontrolled legislature. Florida became a national laughingstock again. This despicable attack on our democracy,which was premeditated and implemented by cutting back on early voting,then understaffing poll places for the remaining hours that polls were open, occurred at a time when we should be seeking ways to increase the percentage of voting Americans. I am yet to find local Republicans who voted for state legislators with the expectation that they would cheat to win. Floridas Republican voters who have not contacted their elected officials and clearly told them to fix this problem should be ashamed of themselves. James Upchurch SebringChildren deserve our protectionEditor: We have all been horrified by the snuffing out of the innocent young lives in the mass murder in Connecticut and have been reminded of similar tragedies in other schools in recent memory. We grieve the loss and look for ways to prevent such t hings from happening in the future. We are also appalled when governments turn their weapons on the citizens theys hould be protecting,as Syria is threatening to do today and as countries like China and the U.S.S.R. have done in the past. Why then,are the people of our country so complacent when thousands of our most vulnerable baby citizens are murdered,even dismembered,each year,by the government-sanctioned abortion industry? Our own country is to be condemned for allowing this gruesome,barbaric practice to continue. Our children are our most endangered species of all; they deserve our protection. God Himself will hold us accountable. Jean Conrad Sebring BouquetMany help with Angel DaysEditor: Dec. 18 and 19 were Angel Days at Sun N Lake Elementary,when parents arrived at school to receive Christmas presents for their children. I wish that each of you who assisted us with our Christmas Angels could have heard the heartfelt thanks and feel the hugs as we loaded Christmas gifts on their children. We can only imagine the joyful faces Christmas morning,but today the heartfelt appreciation of parents and grandparents warmed all of our hearts. A special thank you to the Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association (AgA ngels) for their generous s upport and Panera Breads staff and patrons for their w onderful response. We wanted to let all of our supp orters know that their e fforts,the generosity of many of our staff and parents,Layes Tire Service, Avon Park Jaycees,Shear Bliss hair salon have made this a very special Christmas for our students.

Fernsler T his letter may hit some peoples nerves like the dentists drill. Nevertheless,Im writing what I believe to be thet ruth and the tree must lay where it falls. How could this senseless murder rampage have taken place in Newtown,Conn.,F riday,Dec. 14? All the other mass killings in the past? Each time our officials and citizens cry out,This ise nough! We can stand no more!After a few days, the loss of life becomes at hing of the past. No changes made. We are a corrupt country. Our gov-e rnment is not a government of the people. The l obbyists runs this United States of America. Our well-intended laws haveb een twisted,bent to serve the need of lawlessness c reated by our leaders,who sought to cover up their crimes. We recall the years 2000 through 2008. We can gob ack much farther than 2000. Watergate,when P resident Ford pardoned President Nixon,a common criminal who gave theo rder to break into Watergate. His henchman s erved time to pacify the outcry of Nixon being forgiven. President Ford was h onored as having healed the nation.He healed nothing. It made a clear statement. Those in high places a re above the law.Lets not forget President Reagan who was responsible for guns being stolen and sold to the Contras. L ieutenant North became the fall guy for Reagan. P res. Reagan confessed to the American people andw as forgiven as far as I know. Then came George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The lobbyists paying fort heir campaigns as they have for other Presidents. Herein lies the mystery of the most lawless and evil administration of theh istory of our country to this time 2012. Based on lies and dishonesty,they conned the Americans into believing Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and was about to use them. After thousands and thousands of sleeping men, women and children were needlessly slaughtered by our military,we learned it was all a hoax. There was no reason for our men and women to invade Iraq killing all those innocent Iraqis as well 3 to 4,000 of our soldiers and wounding more than 32,000 of our young men and women. These were war crimes and no one was punished; however,Colin Powell lied for Bush in an attempt to show America and the world a diagram and a tiny bottle of white powder claimed to be anthrax,a deadly chemical,as reason to invade Iraq. All of this were lies to deceiveAmerican people and those of the world who w ere naive enough to buy into it. When President Obama was elected President,our people had come to under-s tand they had been hoodwinked. Now they were angry and crying for change.That was a perfect time in history to givet he American people the change that would have set the stage for a change int he direction our country would take. A hefty fine from the g uilty of war crimes could have been useful in paying t oward the deficit,a prison sentence,a reminder of what may happen when oure mployees get out of line. Today there are no cons equences for the wealthy or those in leadership in our government. The gun lobby and all the other lobbies,big busi-n esses hold Congress and the House in the death grip o f blackmail. It is vast amounts of money that compelsW ashington to vote according to the dictates of those w ho pay them,lobbyists. I believe this is exactly what President Obama m eant when he said the only way Washington would be cleaned up is from the outside in,though people scoffed at his state-m ent. That cleansing will happen only when Jesus Christ,our Savior appears to put an end to thew ickedness. The guns will continue o n sale at the shows that are held all over this coun-t ry and the guns will continue to be shipped to Mexico. There will always be plenty in the states for those who entertain fan-t asies to kill,getting their names in the news. I recall several years ago when state hospitals were over-crowded with mental-l y ill patients. Massachusetts was one of those states who discharged many of their patients onto the streets to fend for themselves. There were many incidents of patients not taking their medications because of forgetfulness or they used up all that medicines and didt apply for refills. Unfortunately our law makers over look or are not concerned with the outcome of their decisions. It appears the lust for money and power has led to the demise of the laws of this land and our lawmakers have sold the American people out to the gun lobbyists and others. Finally:I do not mean to imply President Obama relied on lobbyists in his campaign. He did not. Una V. McLaughlin is a Sebring resident.

C M Y K TALLAHASSEE (AP For the third year in a row, Florida is giving up on collecting more than $100 million in taxes,fees and fines owed the state. But the amount of money the state is walking away from continues to grow. Data released this past month shows that the state forgave $124.2 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30. Florida in 2011 wrote off $110.5 million as uncollectable,while the number was more than $109 million the year before. The overall amount of money that Florida is losing is small compared with the size of the states annual $70 billion budget. But the failure to collect the money comes amid year after year of state budget cuts. State Sen. Joe Negron,RStuart and the new Senate budget chief,said even though the amount is small he still wants the Legislature to re-examine whether the state is doing enough to collect money it is owed. e want to be circumspect and prudent with every dollar we have available to us in the state budget, Negron said. ll take a fresh look at that number and see if there is any possibility of reducing that amount. A large portion nearly $37 million that was written off by state officials was unpaid taxes,including sales taxes,corporate income taxes and unemployment taxes. A breakdown provided by the Department of Revenue shows that $15.4 million that was forgiven was sales taxes owed by businesses. Stores and other businesses are required to collect and then hand over the states 6 percent sales tax. The agency also forgave $13.4 million in unpaid income taxes from corporations. This year the state also closed the books on trying to collect back nearly $30.7 million that was overpaid to people receiving unemployment compensation checks. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, December 26, 2012Page 5A CENTRAL FLORIDA CASKET STORE &; 1.736"; 6"; Black; obit page; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 5 5 5 5 4 4 3 3 DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; cornerstone hospice; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 5 5 6 6 1 1 5 5 MARTIAL ARTS (pp ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 5 5 6 6 5 5 8 8 Special to the News-SunSEBRING The forecast is in and its callingf orSNOW!

Tray always had the capacity,always,Stahl says. I could see that. He feels p assionately about what he is doing,and Im really,really proud of him. I think he h as a lot more to do in life, and hes just beginning to t ap into that. Its fun to watch. At about 4:40 p.m. another secret text message arrives:Leaving Avon Park.G et outside.

C M Y K By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. Associated PressEASTRUTHERFORD, N.J. It has been a while since Tim Tebow only watched this much from the sideline. The popular backup quarterback didnt play a snap for the New York Jets for the fourth time in five games, a mere spectator despite being active Sunday for the 27-17 loss to the San Diego Chargers. New York will either trade or release Tebow after the season, a disappointing oneyear stint with the Jets that just seems to get worse for Tebow. He was asked after the game if he could remember the last time he had played so little on the football field. Three or 4 years old, probably, Tebow said. Since I started. The former Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national champion at the University of Florida spent his first two seasons with the Denver Broncos, who used Tebow in occasional situations until he became the starter last season and led the team to the playoffs. My rookie year, I got opportunities doing stuff, Tebow said. You know, goal-line, third down, fourth down and stuff like that. Tebow was leapfrogged by Greg McElroy on the teams depth chart when Rex Ryan chose to have the thirdstringer make his first NFL start in place of the benched Mark Sanchez. All three quarterbacks were active, but only McElroy played and Tebow never got into the game in the teams wildcat package. Tebow said it just happened that he didnt play in the package usually reserved for him, but ESPN New York reported that he actually asked out of running the wildcat earlier in the week, according to sources. The Jets used wide receiver Jeremy Kerley in the wildcat as Tebow remained on the sideline. Kerley completed a 42yard pass to Clyde Gates out of the wildcat, and had a few other snaps out of the scheme. ell, its been disappointing, Tebow said of the season. Obviously, it didnt go as we thought, as I had hoped, but sometimes in life you have that. Sometimes you have setbacks and you just have to look at them as another opportunity for you to step back up and keep working and figure out what to do. Tebow was acquired from Denver in a trade last March and expected to be a major contributor to the offense. He has been only a role player whenever he actually plays. He took three snaps at St. Louis on Nov. 18, a week after breaking two ribs, but has played in just one game since getting a full offensive series for the first time all season last Monday nig ht in Tennessee. Otherwise, it has been a lot By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThis past summer, Lake Placid graduate Dylan Weber-Callahan had been faced with a tough decision to pursue offers to play baseball or drop the sport in pursuit of his education. You see, at the start of his freshman campaign for the Savannah College of Art and Design, the school announced that this would be the last season of the baseball program. Of course, as things turned o ut, Weber-Callahan had a b reakout season on the mound, and other schools began to circle around with offers to continue his career elsewhere. But the architect in training was at the best school for his academic goals and in the end, that was what won out. Of course, then another athletic opportunity came calling as the SCAD Lacrosse coach asked if hed be interested in trying out a new sport. o be honest, I knew what the sport was, because I have some friends that play Weber-Callahan said. But other than the basic objecti ve of the game, to score points, I was pretty lost. But the versatile athlete, who had also been a standout swimmer in high school, was certainly up to try something new. Lacrosse is one of the truest, and oldest, North American sports which traces itsroots to Native American tribes and goes back as early as 1100 A.D. Somewhat akin to hockey on dry ground, the angled hockey sticks are replaced by straight, long sticks with a netted head and the puck is replaced by a small rubber ball. Like hockey, or football for that matter, lacrosse is a full-contact sport with players adorned with shoulder pads, helmets and padded gloves. Bodyand stick-checks are normal tactics to try to prevent a team from advancing up field and scoring, while positioning and boxing out much like battling for a SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, December 26, 2012 The weekly NASCAR page will run in the Friday, Dec. 28, Sports section of the News-Sun C ourtesy photo S enior Triathlon athlete Russ Hudson was a featured guest on Ed Lynchs Sports Talk show on Saturday, Dec. 22.

Bush repeatedly shook loose Sunday, catching passes for two scores and running for a third to help the Miami Dolphins beat the hapless Bills 24-10. The win kept Miamis slim playoff hopes alive for another six minutes. By the time they reached the locker room they had been eliminated because of Cincinnatis victory at Pittsburgh. s hard to win in this league, Bush said. Weve got to a do a better job obviously next season. Miami will sit out the playoffs for the 10th time in 11 years. The NFLhas a system in place six teams earn a spot in the playoffs, firstyear coach Joe Philbin said. It is what it is. The Bills (5-10 into the game assured of missing the playoffs for the 13th consecutive season. Coach Chan Gaileys team reached a double-digit loss total for the third year in a row, but he said hes not worried about his job security. No, I worry about getting better ... playing to our abilities, which we havent done, he said. And thats my responsibility to get that done. T he Bills missed a chance at a sweep of the season series with Miami. e came into this game playing for pride, said C.J. Spiller, who rushed for 138 yards. We were just trying to get the respect that we know we dont have right now. Respect has been elusive for the Dolphins, who need a win in Sundays finale at New England to avoid their fourth consecutive losing season. There were signs of progress against Buffalo, with an efficient offense and a stingy defense that Dolphins miss playoffs but beat Bills See MIAMI, Page 3B MCTphoto This photo pretty much sums up Tim Tebows opportunity and contribution for and to the New York Jets this season.

FTA Heartland December Activities suddenly began forcing turnovers. Safety Reshad Jones r ecovered two fumbles and made an interception at the Miami 1 with 71 seconds left to seal the victory. The Dolphins managed four takeaways playing with a patchwork secondary that included starting cornerback Dimitri Patterson, acquired Tuesday after being waived b y Cleveland. The Dolphins took advantage of Buffalos woeful run defense by netting 182 yards o n the ground while averaging 5.2 per carry. Lamar Miller had 73 yards, Bush 65 and Tannehill 44. T he Dolphins recovered three fumbles, doubling their season total, but their most spectacular takeaway was Jonesinterception. J ones leaped at the line of scrimmage to snare Ryan Fitzpatricks pass and clinch the win. He just made a heck of a play, Fitzpatrick said. T he Dolphinsflurry of t akeaways came after they had one in their previous seven games. They come in bunches, linebacker Karlos Dansby said. We stuck with it. Along with the turnovers and 11 penalties, missed chances hurt the Bills. Stevie Johnson lost a fumble at the Miami 17 and dropped a pass in the end zone, when Buffalo settled for a field goal. Especially the first half there, I think thats as poor as weve played offensively since Ive been here, Fitzpatrick said. B uffalo settled for a field goal after Johnsons dropped pass. The ruling appeared quest ionable, but the Bills didnt challenge the call. If the ball rolls out witho ut (the receiver with it and giving it to the official, theyre not going to ever give it to you, Gailey said. So youre wasting a challenge there. NOTES: Miami CB Sean Smith hurt his left knee in the second half. ... For the Bills, TE Scott Chandler left the game in the first quarter witha left knee injury. FB Dorin Dickerson was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter with a right ankle injury. ... SS DaNorris Searcy hurt his groin in the second quarter.

There were several moments throughout the game Sunday when the defense was on the field and McElroy and Sanchez went over the game plan with o ffensive coordinator Tony Sparano, while Tebow was off to the side talking with other teammates. I think first and foremost, y ou try to do whats right and you try to do your best and you try to treat others the way you want to be treated, Tebow said. Those were three things that my high school football coach taught me and its still just as true to this day Tebow was then asked if he feels he has been treated right by the Jets, and he then l aughed twice. I have a lot of great relat ionships with people in the Jets organization and this team, he said. Its been a privilege to be a part of this team. He also avoided a question about whether he thinks he has been given a fair chance in New York, saying he wants to focus on the future. That future could include h is hometown Jacksonville Jaguars, who will pursue Tebow in the offseason, according to an ESPN report. He laughed off the rumors that he could be heading back to his hometown and the only other team besides the Jets that tried to acquire him last offseason. eve just got to find a way to beat the Buffalo Bills next Sunday, Tebow said. Tebow was asked if it was perhaps his agent Jimmy Sexton who is floating out those rumors, and the quarterback strongly defended him saying he has Jimmys back. H e also disagreed with the notion that perhaps the situation was a distraction to the team as they prepared for Sundays game. ou look around and see all the reports and, golly, theres a lot of random news going out there, Tebow said. Guys in this locker room, they dont pay attention. So, to say it was a distraction I think is false. I dont think its a distraction to anybody in this locker room. Thats the first I even heard of it.

C M Y K By MARK LONG Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Coming off consecutive prime-time games at home and facing one of the NFLs worst teams on the road, the New England Patriots were poised for a letdown. They surely didnt expect a near meltdown. Tom Brady overcame a rough start by throwing two touchdown passes, and the Patriots held on to beat the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars 23-16 on Sunday. e came out flat and I think it showed out there, Patriots receiver Wes Welker said. Weve got to do a better job of starting fast and doing what we do to take control of the game. Aweek after falling behind 31-3 against San Francisco, the Patriots found themselves down 10-0 in Jacksonville. Brady had two interceptions in the first quarter, the second one helping the Jaguars (2-13 ble-digit lead. But the Jaguars faded in the third quarter for the fourth consecutive week, lost for the 11th time in the last 12 games and set a franchise record for losses in a season. Brady had a lot to do with the home teams latest setback, finding his rhythm aftera sluggish start and picking apart Jacksonvilles defense. He hooked up with Welker for a 2-yard score on the second play of the fourth quarter, putting the Patriots (11-4) ahead 23-13. That seemed like plenty of cushion against the offensively challenged Jaguars. Jacksonville, though, had two decent chances to tie things in the closing minutes. Trailing by a touchdown, the Jags faced third-and-goal at the 1 when tight end Zach Potter jumped before the snap. So the short-yardage situation became a passing play, and Chad Henne was sacked, leaving Jacksonville with a fourth-and-goal play at the 10. Chandler Jones hit Henne as he tried to throw, and Patrick Chung intercepted the floater over the middle. s a bad feeling, obviously, Potter said. It puts our team in a bad situation there. Its not the one play that cost us the game. Potter said he had trouble hearing the snap count because thousands of Patriots fans scoped up tickets and helped give Jacksonville its biggest home crowd since 2004. It was really loud, which you dont usually expect at home, Potter said. Coach Mike Mularkey, though, blamed the officials for failing to recognize and penalize New England for yelling out cadence during a hard shift. That was disappointing because that was brought up to the officials before the game, Mularkey said. That was addressed. We practiced it. We practiced it the whole week with those guys shifting with the cadence. ... Obviously they didnt call it and we jumped. Very frustrating. Regardless, the Jaguars got the ball back after the Patriots failed to run out the clock. Henne connected with Toney Clemons on fourth down with 22 seconds remaining and then Jordan Shipley for an 18-yard gain that put them at the New England 12. But Chung intercepted Hennes final pass, essentially a jump ball to the middle of the end zone. win is a win, but we know weve got to play better no matter what, Patriots safety Devin McCourty said. s better to come out here when youre not at your best and get a win. I think this team really understands its all about us. Weve got to play our best each week. Its disappointing knowing that we didnt play as good as we could. New England avoided consecutive losses in December for the first time since 2002. Brady completed 24 of 41 passes for 267 yards, his w orst outing in six games against Jacksonville. Welker caught 10 passes for 88 yards, passing Jerry Rice and Andre Johnson for the most 10-catch games (18 in NFLhistory. Stevan Ridley ran 18 times for 84 yards. Brady entered the game having thrown for 1,207 yards, with 13 touchdowns and no interceptions, in five wins against the Jaguars. His string of success ended with his first pass, though. Ridley tipped the ball down the sideline, and safety Chris Prosinski picked it off for his first interception of the season. Jacksonville moved the ball, but settled for a field goal. And that was the story of the day for Mularkeys team. The Jaguars had the ball inside New Englands 25 seven times, but came away with a touchdown and three field goals. And not scoring touchdowns against the leagues most prolific offense is hardly a formula for success. e had them on their heels for a while, Jaguars defensive end Jeremy Mincey said. They just capitalized, got a few interceptions and a few first downs on us. We held their scoring average down, which is good, and held them to a lot of field goals, which was excellent. It still wasnt enough. Henne completed 29 of 51 passes for 348 yards, with a touchdown and three interceptions. His 3-yard TD pass to Justin Blackmon to open the game was Jacksonvilles first touchdown on its opening possession since Oct. 9, 2011, against Cincinnati. But the ending is all that matters for Jacksonville, which left owner Shad Khan with decisions to make about Mularkey and general manager Gene Smith. NOTES: Brady has thrown a TD pass in 47 consecutive games, tying Johnny Unitas for second on the NFLs all-time list. He trails Drew Brees by seven. ... Mularkey gave every player a baseball bat before the game with the words violent, physical, relentless on it as a motivational tool. ... Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts III and G Uche Nwaneri left the game with concussions.

What he soon found as an initial comfort zone were some similarities to baseball, though with some notable differences as well. I feel like eye-hand coordination is really important in lacrosse and that was something I took away from baseball, he said. At the first d ay of practice this fall, we all lined up and started tossing the ball back and forth, gradually moving further and further apart. I remember thinking, all right, I can do this. This is just like warming up for baseball. But that comfort zone quickly dissipated for the right-handed thrower. e started doing passing drills and had to use our left and right hand to catch and throw, which was completely new for me, Weber-Callahan continued. I realized how completely lost I was and to this day, Im still not completely comfortable with that aspect of the game. As practices continued, he began to see similarities to other sports as he learned more about the game. There are some plays that are similar to basketball, along with soccer, just because all of the running the m idfielders have to do, he said. We make picks, set g uys up to cut across the f ield, or across the crease, and a defender has to guard his man. I definitely dont have the experience to get into more detailed plays, but after every practice I feel likeI understand the game a little bit better Like the old adage of teaching an old dog new tricks, though WeberCallahan is by no means old, in context it rings true that it is a challenge at this stage. I love baseball and when I learned to play, I was fouryears old, so I know it pretty well he said. The majorityo f the guys on the team have been playing lacrosse for as long, if not longer, than Ive been playing baseball. T ransition isnt the best word for it, its more like an opport unity to learn a brand new s port. My teammates have been great in helping me improve on the field and understand the game better, but I definitely have a lot of catching up to do. The college years are a time of new beginnings and transition, discovery and decisions, as young adults take steps toward their futures. Dylan Weber-Callahan has experienced a little bit of all of that just a little way into his sophomore year. His future as an architect won out over a possible base-b all journey, but in so doing, brought about a new opportunity for his athletic and competitive fires. Getting to play a new sport in college has just made m e realize that as long as y oure willing to put the work in, you really can do anything, he said. Before this past summer, I had never even seen a lacrosse game being played, and had no idea that I ever would. Im still at a beginners level, but I can only get better from where Im at. And the athletic endeavors of this student athlete take off on a new path. Continued from 1B MCTphoto Much like hockey and football, lacrosse is a full-contact sport, with shoulder pads and heavy hitting. Lacrosse is Weber-Callahans newest athletic endeavor By MARK DIDTLER Associated PressTAMPA Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano is worried about more than struggling quarterback Josh Freeman. As a coach, when you dont win and turn the ball over, youre concerned about everything, Schiano said after the Bucs lost their fifth straight game, 28-13 to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Im paid to win games, and weve lost five straight, Schiano added. So yeah, Im concerned.B ut its just not about Josh F reeman. It starts with Greg Schiano and goes all the way through the organization. Im concerned because we havent been able to get it done and Im the head coach. So Ive got to keep going back and looking at i t. Freeman followed one of the worst performances of his career with another clunker. He has thrown eight interceptions in the past two weeks after only having three passes picked off over the previous eight games. Not depressing ... definitely frustrating, Freeman said. You want to win fory our whole team. Ive got to take the blame as the quarterback. Tampa Bay (6-9 the ball over five times and w as stopped on downs twice inside the Rams 10. The Bucs also had five t urnovers last week in a 410 loss at New Orleans. Collectively, were not where we want to be, T ampa Bay safety Ronde Barber said. Clearly out of the playoff picture. Sam Bradford tossed a pair of touchdown passes and rookie cornerback Janoris Jenkins scored his fourth TD of the season, helping the Rams keep their hopes for a winning record alive. Bradford connected with Lance Kendricks on an 80yard scoring play on the first play of the third quarter. The Rams (7-7-1 cepted Freeman four times, turning three of the turnovers into TDs, including Jenkinsinterception and 41-yard return early in the second quarter. Steven Jackson rushed for 81 yards and one TD, moving within 10 yards of reaching 1,000 for the eighth consecutive season. The Rams can finish with a winning record for the first time since 2003 by beating Seattle next week. Bradford completed 13 of 27 passes for 196 yards and one interception. Kendricks finished with four receptions for 119 yards, while Jackson closed in on extending the NFLs longest current streak of 1,000-yard seasons rushing on 19 carries. Tampa Bay outgained the Rams 429 yards to 285, with Freeman going 30 of 54 for 372 yards and one TD. Mike Williams scored on a 61-yard reception and had seven catches for 132 yards. Vincent Jackson also had a big day with seven receptions for 108 yards, while the Rams limited rookie Doug Martin to 62 yards r ushing on 18 attempts. St. Louis took advantage of their opportunities, and w e had a lot of missed opportunities, Schiano s aid. We had plenty of chances to win the game. W illiams slipped to the ground on Jenkinsinterception, but Freeman tried to force the ball into a crowd in the middle of the field when he was picked off by James Laurinaitis. Jenkins has scored on three of his four interceptions and has also returned a fumble for a touchdown. Jacksons 5-yard TD run in the closing seconds of the first half finished a 65-yard drive Bradford led after Laurinaitisinterception, and the Rams broke it open with two more TDs in the first five minutes of the third quarter. Kendricks scored on the first play of the second half, grabbing a pass over the middle at his own 40 and rumbled to the end zone untouched with help from receiver Danny Amendola. A mendola shielded safety M ark Barron from making the tackle just before making just enough contact with another converging defender, Ahmad Black, to allow the tight end to cover the final 20 yards to give St. Louis a 21-6 lead. T hree plays later, Freeman was intercepted for the third time, with Trumaine Johnsons pick at the Tampa Bay 30 leading to Bradfords 5-yard TD pass to Austin Pettis that made it 28-6 with 10:47 remaining in the third quarter. But unlike a week ago when the Bucs didnt seriously threaten to score until the closing seconds,F reeman managed to make this one more interesting. His TD throw to Williams pulled Tampa Bay within 15m idway through the third quarter. T he Bucs continued to move the ball effectively, h owever the Rams stopped one drive at their 5 and a nother at the 3 to remain in control. e will get it straightened out, Schiano said. Notes: Tampa Bay went 0 for 3 in the red zone. ... The Bucs didnt have a sack, but allowed five to the Rams. ... Tampa Bay had the ball for 35:59, compared to the Rams 24:01.

The Jacaranda Hotels l obby is now beautifully decorated for the Christmas holi days. The tree and decorations provide a spectacular sight when one steps into ther oom. Mayor Sharon Shuler, manager of the Jacaranda R estaurant,happily scurried around,trying to seat the restaurants capacity crowdf or the excellent Sunday buffet. As he played,the piano player smiled as he watched a table of Indiana visitors singing along. A fter eating in the restaurant,many locals and visitors strolled on down to TAs gallery and studio, where they met the artists.W hile at the open house a lot of people enrolled in the artistsclasses,which include oil,acrylic and watercolor painting,clay building and jewelry making. Avon Park residents and o ld friends Dr. Catherine Cornelius,Jody Griffing and J oan Hartt enjoyed chatting at a table as they munched holiday goodies and drank punch. Life-long best friends and 1 958 Avon Park High School graduates Annette Weinzirl Campbell,a majorette and Jewellene Newsome Sullivan,a cheerleader mets ome old friends at the gallery and made new friends as they admired the original paintings. Campbell said,I especially like this framed watercolor of pink tulips by Betty Heim. Sullivan said,I like Louise Weispaintings of wildlife and farm animals. Artist Betty Moore Heim got her Bacehlor in Fine Arts degree,with teaching certification,in Wayne,N.J. and then became a Fine Arts teacher. She studied art history at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. She also studied art for a s ummer at the University of Salzburg,in Austria. She and h er sister once went up the mountain where The Sound of Musicwas made and they happily skipped along, singing,The hills are alivew ith the sound of music. Louise Czarnecki Weis, w ho lives at Weis Farm in Wauchula,was born in Wisconsin,but moved to thei sland of Ketchikan,Alaska when she was 12. She once s erved as president of the Ketchikan Art Guild. Weis enjoys teaching TAG classesa nd excels in Florida landscapes. Weis Farm,with its several hundred cattle,prov ided the subject for one of Weispopular paintings entit led,Red Calf. An interesting,out-oftown couple named Billy and Dee came into the gallery to see what wasg oing on. Our little Harley group from the Vero Beach area is out for a Sunday drive. We stopped at this lovely hotel and had lunch and walked here to see the gallery.Dee,wearing aH arley T-shirt,Harley jewelry,black leather chaps and b lack boots,said,I ride a Harley Davidson soft-tail,a very big bike,about the biggest bike a female can ride. Its a 2003 Anniversarym odel. Thats 100 years for a Harley Davidson.Dee laughed and said,I dont wear spurs.When riding, Dee wears a black helmeto ver her short,stylized blonde hair. Billy and Dee live in Toronto,Canada and are snowbirds in Vero Beach. They trailer the bikes to Vero for the winter and then trailer the bikes back in the summer. Billy wearing a white muscle shirt and black pants, rides a 2008 Ultra-Classic, another big Harley. Another guest,Gail Thompson,from Louisville, Ky.,is in Avon Park for the winter,for the second time. e liked it here so well last year that we came back this year. Our granddaughter is majoring in graphic arts and a dvertising,so shes interested in anything to do with p ainting. I think its great here and Im thinking of signing up for a class in acrylic painting with Louise Weis. A Sebring visitor,Vickie Porter,Treasurer of the S ebring Womans Club,said, Every artist in here is talented. Avon Park needss omething like this. One woman from Indiana l ooked at a painting,eddy Bears,by Dr. Nancy Adams and commented to herf riend,t that adorable? Dr. Adams is a retired veterinarian from Brandon, F lorida who paints extremely detailed pictures of animals a nd birds. She is a member of The Florida Watercolor Society,which is by invitation only.

C M Y K By MICHAEL R ECHTSHAFFEN T he Hollywood ReporterThe schmaltz is piled on thick,and if the comedy were any broader it would require an Imax screen,but still theres something touching about how hard Billy Crystal and Bette Midler hustle to peddle the threadbare material that makes Parental Guidancea perfectly tolerable,if uninspired,moviegoing experience. As the other grandparentswho are given a golden opportunity to bond with their seldom-seen grandchildren,Billy and Bette work double-time,well aware that its not just the juvenile characters they have to entertain, but also the paying audiences who could count on both of them for a good laugh back in the day. That they manage to pull their weight even when the achingly formulaic plotting threatens to drag them under is a testament to their letsput-on-a-shospirit. The end result should appeal to audiences,including bonding grandparents and grandkids, looking for a little undemanding holiday cheer. Crystal is Artie Decker, who has just lost his longtime gig as De Voice of the Fresno Grizzlieswhen the minor-league baseball team decided to upgrade the outfit with the sort of talent that knows its way around a Facebook page or a Twitter account. Already despondent,hes not exactly jumping up and down over the news that he and his wife Diane (Midler have been recruited to babysit their daughter Alices (Marisa Tomei) three kids when she and her tech-geek husband Phil (Tom Everett Scott) get a last-minute opportunity to have some out-of-town alone time. As expected,uptight Alices no-sugar-allowed helicopter parenting clashes mightily with Artie and Dianes old-school approach to child-rearing,not to mention the fact that Phil has programmed his smart home to be intuitive within an inch of its inhabitantslives. Also as expected are the resulting gags built around technologically challenged Artie. Fortunately,old pro Crystal comes armed with an arsenal of rim-shot-ready rejoinders that hit the mark more than they miss. While his character has been given more of an emotional arc than Midlers (unsurprising,since the genesis of Parental Guidance came from a newly minted grandparenting experience in producer Crystals life),its still nice to see Midler strutting her stuff in her first onscreen comedy role in years. And Tomei is always a welcome presence,even when shes saddled with whats essentially a one-note character for most of the film. It would have been nice if director Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain and husband-and-wife screenwriters Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse (Surfs Up) could have mined some fresher stuff from this frequently played ballgame,but at least when youve got Crystal calling the shots,you can still count on the occasional change-up. arental Guidance,a 20th Century Fox release,is rated PG for some rude humor. 104 minutes. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, December 26, 2012Page 9B E.O.

After all,it is likely that many viewers are in the opposite mood, and they expect the reviewers to be open-minded if not similarly eager. But on this occasion,I must make an exception and say that I was in no mood for Jack Reacher.I only say this because I believe that at t his time there are many in t his country and around the world who share my mood and my attitude toward some of the films subject matter. F or the past week,my m ind has been preoccupied with the shootings in Newtown,Conn. My thoughts range from sympathy for the victims and their families to anger toward the monster responsible to ruminations on issues like gun control and media coverage. I mpersonal mass murders are a sensitive subject at this time,and Jack R eacheropens with a sniper ending the lives of five people for seemingly no reason. By intention, these shootings serve as an emotionally wracking catal yst for the Tom Cruise a ction vehicle that follows. Unintentionally,they serve as an unnecessarily cruel reminder of the recent horror that was sadly all too real. Surely there was a d ebate at the studio as to w hether or not to even allow the films release in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings. Apparently they decided that the shootings in the film were different enough that the audience at large wouldnt find them inapp ropriate. I do,but reasona ble people may feel otherwise. I am not here to disparage anybody who can forgive the film for its admittedly unanticipated parallels to the real-life atrocities,but I am simply not one of them. To the movie itself. A sniper (Jai Courtney) kills five people (none of them children,thankfully) and the lone suspect (Joseph Sikora) is quickly taken into custody.The lead investigator (David Oyelowo) thinks he can get a confession in record time,but the suspect instead tells the police to find Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise). Reacher is a former military investigator who now lives a nomadic life of anonymity. Hes a great detective and a great fighter but he isnt great at making friends,not that he wants a ny. Bad guys hate him because he beats them, g ood guys hate him because he doesnt play by the rules,women hate him because he breaks their hearts. In other words,hesa nother dime-a-dozen supercompetent action h ero. Other key characters include Rosamund Pike ast he suspects public defender and Reachers h andler of sorts,Richard Jenkins as her shady district attorney father,Robert D uvall as a grizzled shooting range operator,and best of all,Werner Herzog as a bone-chilling villain. I forget how he fits into thep lot exactly,but this otherwise bland film needs his demented charisma in the worst kind of way. Somebody needs to casth im as the next James Bond villain right now. T he most popular controversy surrounding JackR eacherseems to be the casting of the 5-foot-7 Tom Cruise as the 6-foot-5 hero in Lee Childs books. As ifI could blame anybody for w anting Tom Cruise in their movie. Though I will blame Cruise for taking this lousy script where his dialogue mostly consists ofs oundbytes for the television commercials. It seems like the only time the movie is being sincere is when its going through the painful process of detailing the lives of the shooting victims and how those lives have been ruthlessly cut short. This brings me back to the issue that I find most discomforting about the film,the depiction of a shooting massacre so soon after the events in Newtown. I have nothing against people who refuse to let this element ruin the film for them,but for me its still too soon. One and a half stars out of five. Jack Reacheris rated PG-13 for violence, language,and some drug material. Its running time is 130 minutes. Contact Bob Garver at rrg251@nyu.edu/. Jack Reacher just too soon Movie Review Film Title Rating: PG-13 (violence, language, and some drug material) Time: 130 minutes R eview: (of 5 By SANDY COHEN A P Entertainment WriterLOS ANGELES After nearly 30 years of friendship and shared tastes in movies,m usic and comedy,Billy Crystal and Bette Midler have finally taken it to the next level:They did a film together. T he two veteran entertainers first met on the comedy circuit,but never actuallyw orked together until arental Guidance,in theaters Christmas Day. He says we met in the s at the Improv,and of c ourse I dont remember any of that because I was going so fast,Midler said in ar ecent interview. Crystal and Midler share t he screen for the first time in the family film,playing a married couple who bumble their way along to bonding with their grandchildren.M arisa Tomei stars as their Type-A daughter,who regrets h aving to entrust her three kids to the other grandparentsduring a business tripw ith her husband when her in-laws arent available. T he idea for the movie came from Crystals real-life experience caring for his own g randdaughters,now ages 6 and 9. He and wife Janice were confounded by the pages and pagesof rules theird aughter left behind. (That daughter,actress Jennifer Crystal Foley,plays a small role in the film.) e had them for six days a ll alone,and on the seventh day I rested,said Crystal, 6 4. And I came into the office a nd started writing the story of grandparents who have to babysit for their kids while they go away. Midler found the script just a s she was looking for a family-film project,and she immediately connected with the humor and warmth of the story. I wanted to do something that everybody could come and see,because thats what I g rew up with,she said. It came at a really good p oint in our lives and our careers to finally find each other and be able to share the responsibilities for the movie together and our scenes,C rystal said. Shes an old pro,in the best of ways. Take out old,shes a pro. And very giving,very funny,and very willing to try anything. Except sing. Crystal said the Oscar-nominated andT ony-winning star was reluctant to perform a sweet songa nd-dance number with him in the film. The only time I ever had to wrestle her was on singing the song. She didnt want tod o it,he said. (She said, No,then thell say Bette Midler is singing a song. A nd I say,No,we wont sing great. Wll sing good,but well sing like parents,and w ll sing together. Their rendition of the M onotones1958 doo-wop classic The Book of Lov is among the films highlights. They kind of talked me i nto it,and Im glad that we did it. It worked out,said Midler,67. s wonderful music and maybe people will go look up the Monotones and see how fabulous they are. C rystal,also a producer of the film,said he uses movies a nd performing as a means of working through significant chapters of his life. The film City Slickers was about him turning 40.H is one-man show, Sundays,is about losing his parents. And then this one is about grandparenting,he said. I shudder to think what the n ext ones about. (Actually,he already k nows:Hes working on a yet-untitled book of essays a mans approach to aging due out in October.) M idler,who described herself as just a player for hir on Parental Guidance,said she admires Crystals sensibilities,and it was fun to finally work with her friend. I like to see people at t heir peak,people doing their best work and really working h ard and bringing things to fruition. Its just fantastic, she said. s a hopeful picture,and I like that about him. I liket he fact that he has that mentality. So to watch him in action is really a lot of fun. Parental Guidance finally unites stars Crystal, Midler MCT Billy Crystal and Bette Midler share the screen for the first time in Parental Guidance. Review: Guidance tolerable if uninspired LONDON (APTens of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the U.S. over his gun control views. Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wake of the Newtown,Connecticut, school shooting. Last week, he called a gun advocate appearing on his Piers Morgan Tonightshow an unbelievably stupid man. Now,gun rights activists are fighting back. A petition created Dec. 21 on the White House e-petition website by a user in Texas accuses Morgan of engaging in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitutionby targeting the Second Amendment. In a series of Twitter messages,Morgan alternately urged his followers to sign the petition and in response to one article about the petition said bring it on.

C M Y K SEBRING Many from the park enjoyed open house at the Wyses on Dec. 15. Bess cut back this year and only decorated five Christmas trees,but the warmth of the decorations, hostess/host,many finger foods and the camaraderie of the group made for a delightf ul evening. Thank you B ess/Bill for sharing your h ome with all of us. If you didnt attend the Baptist C hurch Singing Christmas Tree you missed a great program. Remember the Kings Brasswill be coming in January. The Circlelights are on until Dec. 28. Make a real effort to visit the Sebring park display. Congratulations to our small city for a lovely Christmas present for all ages. Thank you to John Haag and all the volunteers who brought warmth,peace and beauty through the luminaries on Christmas Eve. A group from the park celebrated Christmas with a buffet cruise departing from Ft. Myers and touring the waterfront homes and historic sights that formed the roots of Ft. Myers. I am sure it wasa delightful trip and trust the weather cooperated. Other residents visited/hosted family and friends locally. We are sorry to lose another park resident in December. Doug Shirra passed away in Erie,Pa. early in the month. Our condolences to spouse Jan and brother-in-law Bud Kohler,who arrived this past week at their winter homes in the park. Also,Marvin and Joanne Crow grieve the death of his mother in Canada on Dec. 14. Sincere sympathy is extended to the Crows. Some of our park residents are still recuperating from illnesses to include Helen Lucas,Bill LaPeer,Geri Spangler,and Ginny Burns. We are sorry to report our manager,Phil Belden,was seriously injured recently in an accident on U.S. 27. After being air lifted to a Ft. Myers hospital for treatment,he is presently in rehab in Lake Placid. Our best wishes are extended to Phil for steady recuperation. Encouragement to Donna as she and Spooner c arry on at Town and C ountry. Prayers for a healthy 2013 to all our residents. A group from Town and Country attended the December FMO (Federation of Manufactured Home Owners of Florida Inc.) at Homers restaurant. Eric Zwayer,Highlands County tax collector,shared information concerning his offices responsibilities specifically relating to his audience of manufactured homeowners. He also advised us of many other facets of his office functions which we all utilize. Several in the audience thanked him for the efficiency of his office staff. Election of officers will be held at the Jan. 7,2013 homeowners meeting. President,Secretary and Trustee offices will be on the ballot. New officers will immediately commence their duties after the election. Thank you to all who serve as officers and to all the volunteers who assist throughout the year. Mens breakfast out is Jan. 9. The annual yard sales are on Jan. 26. More information in 2013. I learned this week of a rather unique animal in our park,a dog named Max. Max has been taught to pray before he consumes his meals. He gave us a demonstration and very obediently did not attempt to eat his treat until his owner said amen. Now,if we could just train our fellow humans be be as respectful and obedient,whata wonderful world we would share. Congratulations to owners Adi and Ellie Schweitzer. January birthdays include: Shirley Lowe,Carl Gibbons, H elen and George Dambrowitz,Julia Henneberry,Bill Mattson, L arry Garbert,Tom Bogaczyk,Claudia McManus,and Jerry Shipley.C ongratulations to all on their special day. In closing,my prayer includes thankfulness for the goodness of 2012 and that all may experience a happy, healthy,loving New Year all of 2013. Perhaps we can use as a guide:Kind hearts are the gardens; kind thoughts are the roots; kind words are the flowers; kind deeds are the fruits.Happy New Year.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, December 26, 2012Page 11B Mayonnaise is one of t hose things that many peop le miss afterembarking on a journey towards good health. Some people cant bear togive it up. Some people search for a healthier version of mayo. Otherpeople give it up and choose a healthier alternative. Whats wrong with mayo, you ask? Commercial mayonnaise is often made with canola oil,soy or corn oil,vinegar, egg yolk,lemon juice,mustard,pepper and lots and lots ofchemicals. Canola,of course,is one of those crops that is,moretimes than not, grown from GMO seed. Soy, corn and canola are some ofthe most heavily sprayed crops on the planet. They are almost alwaysGMO. Ninety percent of soy grown in the US is GMO while 88 persent o f corn and 93 percent o fcanola/rapeseed are also grown from genetically modified seed. Mayonnaise is generally not an optimal food for anyone hoping toachieve good health,unless you make your own healthy version. Now,personally,I dont have a lot of patience for making mayo,but ifyoure up to it,go ahead and fill your boots! So,what do I do when I want the creaminess of mayo without the badingredients and the sore arm from emulsifying oil,vinegar and eggs? I use alternatives. Lets take a look at some. Greek yogurt. Plain Greek yogurt is creamy like mayo,it has a zippyflavor to it and its chock full of prot ein and other n utrients.Yogurt makes a great replacement for mayo when youre mixing upchicken salad. Mustard. When it comes to keeping sandwiches and wraps moist,go for mustard. Avocado. A slice of avocado provides color,a nice creaminess and amultitude of nutrients to a sandwich,too. Luckily,when you adopt a healthier lifestyle,many of the foods thatonce required mayonnaise in order to enjoy them will be gone from yourdiet anyway. Potato salad doesnt scream healthy. Have you found a commercial brand of mayo that isnt full of GMOingredients and calories? http://www.facebook.com/sa vingdinner Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of 'Body Clutter' and the Saving Dinner series.

Mayo: Yay-o or Nay-o? Dear Abby: Please help save my marriage. My wifeo f five years discovered an Internet browser history of 13 Web pages I had clicked on the previous day.The pages were of womenss exy lips. My wife is calling it pornand a gateway to porn.I feel guilty about it,but I told her it isnt pornography. I think its a fetish. She says Imu sing that word to get off the hook. W ill you please tell her that this probably is a fetish? Our sex life has notb een the same since she discovered the images on t he computer. What can we do about it in a way that will strengthen our marriage? Not Guilty As Charged D ear Not Guilty: Its a shame you and your wife h adnt discussed what turns you on before she checked your browser history.Af etish is any object that turns someone on,and it c an range from large breasts,to stiletto heels,to leather or rubber items ofc lothing,to full red lips. It is NOT pornography. A way to strengthen your m arriage would be for you to buy her a tube of bright r ed lipstick. And a way for her to improve your sex life would be to put it on. Dear Abby: Im a 13y ear-old girl with a sister and a brother. I was recently told by my dad that I have to teach my brother how to read,but the problem is he has a learning disability and a behavior dis-o rder. I dont know how Im supposed to teach him t o read,and it scares me. On top of that,my dad got mad at my sister and me and said that when we were younger we were justl ike my brother,only worse. He said he was close to giving up on us. Sometimes Dad says were worthless,stupid and asksw hy were even in this world. He says were not good for anything. I have a slight form of autism,so Im sort of slow doing certain things other kids do at my age. I feel like Ill never be as smart as anyone else,and I have no clue how Im going to teach my disabled brother to read. Help! Lost,Alone and Worried in Urbana,Ill. Dear Lost:It would be wonderful if you could teach your learning disabled brother how to read, but you are not equipped to do that. Your brother should be in a special education c lass with a teacher who has the specialized training and,possibly,a tutor. Sometimes,when parents a re extremely stressed or angry they can say things they dont mean without thinking of the lasting effect their words can hav e on a child. You are neither worthless nor stupid. You are an intelligent girl. Frankly,your father appea rs to be in need of some help, and I hope you will share with a counselor at your school what you have told me. Dear Abby: My 13-yea ro ld son is refusing to wear a bicycle helmet because h e has decided its uncool.M y husband and I have a lways worn them,but her e in Texas many people dont. T heres no state law requiring it. I know how devastating the effects of a head injury can be and I want to prevent my son from getting one. How can I help my teenager see that protectin g his brain is more important than looking coolto his friends who dont wear them? My son insists I am .. An Overprotective Mo m D ear Overprotective Mom: Contact your sons pediatrician and ask if he or she can facilitate a tour of a rehabilitation facility that treats people with traumatic brain injuries. If that doesn t convince your son,nothing will. Dear Abby is written by Abigail V an Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Never has been,yet shes ready every New Years Eve for the inevitable attention when shes out trying to have a good time. I dont care if everyone at the table orders a drink but me. Thats fine, said Perry,46,a singer in Atlanta. What I do resent is being pressured, and then being asked is it a religious thingor if I have a problem. Sometimes,she relies on:Oh, thank you,but Im still on methadone.While not true,a quick apology usually ensues and the pesky prober moves along. Whether in recovery or not interested for other reasons,the holidays often mean an excess of booze and drugs. Occasional drinkers fail to moderate and addiction programs around the country note upticks in patient loads soon after the new year, high season for relapsers and those seeking treatment for the first time. Alcohol is often center stage at holiday parties,said Amara Durham, a spokeswoman for Caron Texas,a treatment facility in Princeton,Texas. Many people think they need alcohol to enjoy social occasions such as holiday celebrations. Chapman Sledge,chief medical officer at Cumberland Heights,a center in the Nashville,Tenn.,area,said loved ones hosting holiday dinners and parties should be sensitive to the difficulties of recovering guests. Stray comments like,Just a sip of wine at dinner wont hurt,or Its a party,have a little fun,even if there unintentional,can slow or destroy an addicts recovery,he said. Gina Bestenlehner,who is 12 years sober and program director for the Pur Detox center in Dana Point,Calif., suggests bringing along a sobriety buddy to help stay focused. She also recommends volunteering as a designated driver,which gives a person new purpose and a reason to be there sober. It also saves lives. Along with Thanksgiving and Christmas,New Years Eve is one of those holidays that we try to create community events for because of their association with drinking and the stress of being in recovery and alone on them,said Nasreen Stump,a fundraiser for the center. In three years our attendance at these events has almost quadrupled. Cathy Griffin,54,of Los Angeles has been sober for five years. Im a free woman now and go about my business and personal life wherever there is alcohol and barely give it any thought,she said,ut in the early days of my recovery,it was hell! Instead of salivating while watching the wine meet the lips of the guy across the room,offer to help cut fruit and veggies or rinse some glasses, anything to get your mind off the fact that you cant drink,she said. Look for people who are not drinking to start up a conversation. Believe it or not,there are more people who are not sloshed than you might think. Make a game or a challenge out of finding the folks who are not drinking. And perhaps most important of all, she said,Prepare before the battle. Think about what youre going to drink before you get there. Stay away from caffeine-laden energy drinks and go straight to the bar and ask for a non-alcoholic beverage with a smile. I found for me,I didnt have to stay all night,Griffin said. If I felt uncomfortable,even if it wasnt already midnight,I gave myself permission to leave or go outside and call a sober buddy. and most importantly,breathe High or dry?
