Rich Dixon,a quadriplegic cyclist,has been on a long journey across the country where he has shared his story with all who are willing to hear. Dixon rides what is known as a hand cycle,which has been his second home for the past several months. The Colorado native is also a published author; Dixon has authored two books that describe his life following his accident that left him nearly completely paralyzed and the hope he has gained because of it. Dixon was paralyzed after falling from a ladder hanging Christmas lights at his Colorado home. He is sharing his story of hope, said Dixons wife Becky. Wve met so many people that are looking for hope and are facing disasters and difficulty. He wants to give the gift of hope to others. Dixons journey,with his wife and dog Monte by his side,began four weeks ago when a desire to travel Arc gets a dose of hope from traveler Courtesy Photo Consumers and staff from Ridge Area Arc cheer on Rich Dixon, a retired educator from Fort Collins, Colo., on Monday as he pedals out on his hand cycle from the main campus on College Drive in Avon Park.

News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS The Tourist Development Council is planning to create new arts and music festivals in an effort to attract tourists to H ighlands County. B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRING The Tourist Development Council wants t o change how it does business. M embers of the Heartland Cultural Alliance are suspicious of the proposed changes,worried they are directed at loweringf unding for arts and culture so more money can be spent marketing golf and fishing. The TDC has proposed a new ordinance for the coun-t y commission to sign into law. Funding for the TDC office,including salaries, said director John Scherlacher,will be taken off the top of the budget. He added that would come to 42 percent of the total tourist tax received by the council. The HCA,its president Fred Leavitt said,is not opposed to money taken for TDCs operations per say, although he and others feel 42 percent is high. The main worry,he added,is the other provision that is the remaining finds would be pooled together for the council to dispense with as it wishes without a representative of the arts and cultural community having voting representation on the council, and therefore no advocate, or expert. He adds,(Council members dont know how to market art. They have no concepts,no plans,no goals,no organization whatsoever. Furthermore, (council members spend all the revenue promoting anything they choose. I absolutely understand where the HCA is coming f rom,said County Commissioner Don Elwell,a lso a member of the TDC. or the first nine years,not enough attention was spent on (monitoring the pre-set percentages). I understandt he historical background. On the other side,there is a new era,the TDC has to adapt,Elwell said. The council was only intendedt o function for two years; it has now been around for 11. We have to come up with different plans. A main goal is to simplify the current process, Elwell added. Currently the percentages are complicated 12 percent,17 percent,for example.

Long-time council members John G riffin and Scott Stanley, whose elected terms will expire on March 31,haveb oth qualified for re-election. A third qualifier,Lenard C arlisle,64,has also entered the race for one of the two seats. C arlisle is a Sebring native and employee with the city of Sebring Code Enforcement Department. Carlisle has been a member of the CodeE nforcement Board for the past four years,and has served as president of the board for the past two years. I was born and raised in S ebring. Ive always been interested in what is going on i n this city. I love Sebring, Carlisle said. C arlisle is not only a resident and native of Sebring, but a business owner as well, much like many of the current members of city council. C arlisle began his company,Living Water Services Inc. (a citrus irrigation company),in 1984,and has been in the business since the late1 970s. The experienced businessman knows all about agriculture,economics and culture of the Heartland and is excited to possibly become a more hands-on part of the Sebring community.

PB:Power Ball Lottery Center Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Bandstands were most popular across the country during the late 1800s and early-mid-1 900s and Avon Park was no exception. Local residents craved music and thats what bandstands provided in those early days. M any of the original bandstands have either disappeared,fallen into disrepair, or been removed because they stood in the way ofp rogress. The Avon Park bandstand,built in 1897 in front of the Hotel Verona (near what is now Donaldson Park),is nothing if its not a survivor. Its still standing,s till surviving as an Avon Park landmark. T he bandstand served as the hub for a variety of downtown activities. Along witht hose concerts,youd find political rallies,auctions, P TA-sponsored cake-walks, civic events,Halloween carnivals and Christmas programs. As local attorney David Lanier,who grew up inA von Park,put it,It seems like every holiday was an e xcuse to have a celebration in town. The hotel was the center of social life for the young town. Local residents andg uests would gather on the porch of the hotel in the evenings to listen to music and play a card game (probably Whist an early formo f bridge). The music was often provided by the Avon Park Concert Band. In 1912,the Ladies Civic League agreed to move theb andstand from the hotel to a vacant lot near Main Street to make it more convenient for the townspeople. When Main Street was divided around 1920,the bandstand was thenm oved to its present location on the Mall and again b ecame a gathering spot for the townspeople. The bandstand also served as the cityp olice headquarters for several years. F or many years after World War II,the bandstand fell into disrepair. The city was divided between those who wanted the bandstand demol-i shed and those who wanted it restored. A t a city council meeting to discuss the future of the b andstand,Cliff Thomas, representing the Old Settlers Association (forerunner tot he Historical Society of Avon Park),said,We need t o save it; it is part of our history,and he asked the council for support in restoring the bandstand. He was told the only money the cityw ould spend was for tearing it down but the council did a llow time for funds to be raised. The association took o n the job. Some folks gave money,others donated materials and men from the localp rison did the work. The bandstand was r estored to its original condition and the newly built bandstand was rededicated May 27,1971. In its coverage of the re-dedication,the AvonP ark Sun recalled the many residents who in the evenings would grab their lanterns, w alk down to the bandstand and stand around while list ening to the concert band perform. Afterwards,thed light their lanterns and headh ome. The Avon Park bandstand i s reported to be one of Americas oldest surviving bandstands. In fact,the bandstand has been part of our history for 116 years. Letsh ope its also part of our future.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK Monday night City Manager Julian Deleon asked the city councilf or direction regarding the new signage code he and city staff are developing for the city. The issue,Deleon said,is v isibility for local businesses,especially for those situated along high volume,high speed roads. He asked the council to provide flexibility regarding elevated signs on roadways where traffic is designed to travel faster than 40 miles per hour. Our current code does not allow the smallercommercial establishments to have elevated signs,he said. They allow elevated signs for only warehouses and shopping centers. He said only monument signs are permitted for small-e r businesses,but the code restricts the size to seven feet in height,including the pedestal,and the sign body cannot be bigger than 72 square feet. This makes them impossible to read when driving above 50 mph,Deleon said. Elevated signs,on the other hand,have higher visibility. The new code is to help businesses get attention along busy,fast streets like U.S. 27 and State Road 64. They are not being proposedf or Main Street or Lake Avenue,Deleon emphasized. The code has restrictions. An elevated sign cannot be more than 20 feet high,andt he body of the sign cannot have a gross surface area larger than 150 square feet. No matter the size of the business,or type of signage, only one sign is allowed per property including shopping centers. Council members expressed interest in the proposed change,but because the code is still being developed,no decisions were made. Avon Park changes sign of the times COMMUNITYBRIEFS Continued on page 6A B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRING The 2013 Python Challenge ended Feb. 10. Between Jan. 1 and then,68 Burmese Pythons were harvested from the E verglades. Nearly 1,600 hunters from 38 states, Washington D.C. and Canada,took part in the challenge,which offered cash prizes. In addition to raising awareness about the p roblem pythons present to the natural balance of Evergladesmammals,reptiles and bird life,Florida Wildlife Commission said it was an unprecedented opportunity to gather invaluable information about the snakest hemselves. T he longest snake in the general hunt division was 14 feet,3 inches. The longest snake i n the permitted division measured 11 feet,1 inch. One hunter harvested six snakes,making h im a winner in the general category. A permitted hunter brought in 18,making both men grand prize winners ($1,500 apiece Two other men shared second place,each with five pythons apiece. T he News-Sun tried but was unable to reach Calvin Turner to find out if he had returned to the hunt.

Taking the witness stand in his own defense,77-year-old Hafiz Khan rejectedU .S. government charges that he sent at least $50,000 to the Taliban for use in viol ent attacks against both U.S. and Pakistani government interests overseas. We are innocent of these accusations, said Khan,speaking in Pashto through an interpreter. We have no connection with them whatsoever.We hate them. Khan,who became a naturalized U.S. citi zen after arriving here in 1994,said he is proud to live in this country,is registered to vote and does not even know how to fire a gun. Frequently stroking his flowing white beard and adjusting his skullcap,the imamo f a downtown Miami mosque said he does not own a television and concentrates mainly on Islamic studies and teaching something he feels utterly free to do in the U.S. because of its guaranteed rights. It is really a good thing to be a citizen of t he United States,Khan said. The prosecutions case is built largely on FBI wiretaps and recorded in-person conversations in which Khan is heard apparently praising attacks committed by theP akistani Taliban,including some in which U.S. personnel were killed. The Taliban is also linked to al-Qaida and to attempted attacks in the U.S.,such as the failed 2010 bombing in New Yorks bustling TimesS quare. In some of those calls,Khan appears to b e advocating the overthrow of Pakistan's government,such as one in which he sayst hat God should turn the government upside down and let it be scattered completely. In testimony Tuesday,Khan said he was angered by the Pakistani armys decision tot emporarily shut down a religious school,or madrassa,that he owns in his ancestral Swat Valley. Khan said he was also upset by what he viewed as overly aggressive and violent army actions against dissidents and the poori n their 2009 campaign against the Taliban. There was no justice there,he said. The majority of the victims were innocent people and there was no investigation. Florida imam takes stand, denies Taliban connection

C M Y K W ith an editorial titled Pope Sets Example For Other Aging Leaders,USA Today tried laying a major guilt trip on the nationsa uthority figures. Despite using disclaimers such as There is no magic age for retirement,the newspaper clearly wants tos hame prominent people into voluntarily giving up the reins of power. True,the nation has no shortage of councilmen, chefs,truckers,mechanics,a nimal trainers,evangelists, journalists and attorneys w ho might conceivably become a danger to themselves or to others; but crit-i cs like to pick on the extreme cases. Like the o verburdened doctor who absentmindedly left a tiny sponge sewn up near a patients pancreas. Granted, the doctor was a podiatrist,b ut...

Dannys weekly column is distributed exclusively by Cagle Cartoons Inc. newspaper syndicate. This is not the first time t he 3rd Battalion has been deployed overseas. T here is no better way for Highlands County to show our support and appreciationo f our men and women still being sent into harms way. W e thank the American Legion Post 74 for putting together this important event. Come and make the sendoff for these courageous sol-d iers something they will remember forever. S o we have an idea about where the 3rd Battalion is headed,here are a few factsa bout Qatar. It is slightly smaller than t he state of Connecticut,the entire country a thumb-like peninsula jutting from SaudiA rabia into the Persian Gulf. The capital is Doha,which is eight hours ahead of W ashington D.C. (noon in D.C. is 8 p.m. in Qatar) B ecause it is a peninsula, Qatar does not have a border with the United Arab Emirates,but they are immediately to the south. O ur soldiers will be living in a country that is an almost t otally flat,barren desert, covered with loose sand and gravel. There are zero squarek ilometers of water. According to the CIA, Q atar winters are dry,mild and pleasant; summers are humid and very hot; the sky is often hazy; dust storms and sand storms are common. O nly 40 percent of the countrys population is Arab; I ndian,Pakistani and Iranians make up 46 percent of the population,the remaining 14p ercent are a mix from other places. The population is a bout 2 million,96 percent of who live in urban areas. Seventy-eight percent of thep opulation is Muslim; 9 percent are Christian; 13 percent are listed as other. A rabic is the native language,but English is comm only spoken. There are no political parties in Qatar. Its leader is the hereditary Amir,who has final say on all issues. T he 3rd battalion will witness history while deployed, a nd not just the history they will write themselves. According to CIA.gov ,later i n 2013 the country holds its first legislative elections for a n ew advisory council called the Majlis al-Shura,although the council will have little authority,beyond approving the national budget and hold-i ng ministers to account through votes of no-confid ence. The 116th Field Artillery unit,made up of our friendsa nd neighbors,is headed to a place very different from C entral Florida. They will probably be fairly isolated, and not free from risk. T he Qatar peninsula is strategically important,being just above the Strait of H ormuz,one of the most traveled,and dangerous,shipping l anes in the world at this time. Come out Thursday to the Highlands County Fair Convention Center at F iremens Field. The formal ceremony begins promptly at 1 600 (4 p.m. 1300 (1 p.m. farewell.

Tyrades! Danny Tyree It is not about titles of common respectEditor: d like to comment on the Feb. 1 religion article by Kevin Patterson titled evin,what should I call you?I read Kevins articles and generally find them positive and uplifting. While Im not a religious leader or teacher. and by no means a theologian,I did find the Feb. 1 article troubling and misleading,if not intentionally divisive. My concern stems from an individual taking one passage out of the Holy Bible and misinterpreting its intent by confusing verbiage with the theological concept. It is this type teaching that has lead to more than 30,000 different Christian denominations rather than remaining one as Christ would want us. Wefind congregations fighting over interpretations and often dividing so that each can claim that they have the truth. I dont believe the Holy Spirit means to lead us into thousands of conflicting truths. Now back to the article which cites Matthew 23:9. t call anyone on earth FatherMr. Patterson is content with a literal interpretation of the text. He says the word father describes God alone. He does,however,somehow allow for children calling their dad,father. At what age should that stop? More to the point,lets read Matthew 23:8. But be not you called Rabbi Rabbi means teacher and can be translated as doctor. Christ goes on to tell us not to use teacher because we have only one teacher. Maybe anyone using these titles is also violating the literal interpretation of the text. Read on to Matthew 23:10. Neither be ye called master,for One is your master; Christ. Consider this. Isnt Christ simply teaching us not to place any human authority on the level of God? When we use mister,master,doctor,teacher,pastor,father, reverend,or other titles of respect,we are not by any means exalting a person above God. I personally have never known a pastor,priest, minister,or rabbi that didnt consider themselves as a servant to God. The message in Matthew is all about hypocrisy and not about titles of common respect. When we read the Bible we need to be aware of context and look at all of Scripture. For instance look at John 8:39,Acts 5:34,Col 4:1,2T 1:11,John 2:13,Eph 5:31,Eph 6:2,Eph 6:4. Need I go on? Use of the term father is found through the Bible and was commonly used in the early church. Documented in Acts 7,St. Stephan,the first martyr,stands before the Sanhedrin and uses father to refer to numerous prophets. Can we conclude from the above that the apostles did not look to a literal interpretation but rather to the message Christ is teaching? Look at Matthew 5:22. Whosoever shall say,thou fool,shall be in danger of hell fire. Now read Matthew 23:17 where Christ Himself says You blind fools! Which is greater,the gold?We clearly need to look not simply at words but the meaning behind them. Have you ever heard anyone say it was raining cats and dogs? The words do not mean cats and dogs were falling out of the sky but rather the message was that it was raining very hard. I intend no disrespect or malice in my response to Mr. Patterson and if it is his desire to be referred to as Kevin rather than another title,I respect his personal choice. I simply ask that his public comments and opinions be more respectful to those who may not share his personal theology. I will continue to use common titles of respect for ministers and priests with no guilt in my heart. My pastor has earned my respect and I am not in any way addressing him as a God.

I just kept saying OK,honey.I encouraged him and the desire justw ouldnt go away. He kept talking about it and here we a re,Becky said. Along the journey,Rich has stopped at numerous f acilities along his trek to give an encouraging word to those living with disabilities and other issues. Though Dixon rarely has s pent time with individuals with mental disabilities,his stop at Ridge Area Arc was greatly appreciated by employees and membersa like. Dixon focuses on telling his story to different p latforms in different ways. Depending on the audience,h e sometimes focuses on the strength he found through God and grace,other times focusing on perseverance and purpose. Its not always about the disabilities you can see like my husbands ... people need hope in general. He tells them to not give up,to find ap assion to focus on the things you can do instead of those you cant. He reaches people however they need to be reached,Becky said. As for Richs Ride,the cyclist is on a steady journey to continuing to spread hope and acceptance throughoutt he country. Dixon doesnt want to take all the glory for h is efforts and has dedicated his ride to raising funds for the Convoy of Hope organi-z ation,a faith-based nonprofit that provides disaster r esponse and international feeding initiatives for children. D ixon has rode 1,000 miles around the perimeter of Florida since he started in J acksonville on Jan. 28 and traveled all the way down to Miami.

Officials say the six crew members and station are fine and had no problemd uring the brief outage. NASA spokesman Josh Byerly said something went wrong around 9:45 a.m. EST Tuesday during a computer software update on thes tation. The outpost abruptly lost all communication, v oice and command from Houston. Communication was r estored less than three hours later,Byerly said ve got our command a nd control back,he said. Station commander Kevin Ford was able to briefly radio Moscow while the station was flying over Russia. N ormally,NASA communicates with and sends commands to the station from Houston,via three communications satellites thatt ransmit voice,video and data. Such interruptions have happened a few times in the past,the space agency said. If there is no crisis going o n,losing communication with the ground "is not a terr ible thing," said former astronaut Jerry Linenger, who was on the Russians pace station Mir during a dangerous fire in 1997. ou feel pretty confidentu p there that you can handle it. Youre flying the spacecraft. Not only should this boost the confidence of thes tation crew,its good training for any eventual mission to Mars because there will be times when communications is down or difficultd uring the much farther voyage,Linenger said. In the past few weeks the space station had been purposely simulating communications delays and down-t imes to see how activity could work for a future M ars mission,Byerly said.

Sometimes the peoplet hat sit on the board for a long time become a little insensitive to the needs of the people; a fresh mind with fresh ideas helps that not toh appen.

I justt hink its time for some change. Id like an opportunit y to help the people, Carlisle said. Carlisles stance is that elected officials are placed in their positions to be the voiceo f the people. After speaking to customers and other peop le in the community, Carlisle feels that it is his duty to represent the citizens of Sebring with honesty and integrity.

Elwell said that while the T DC has shortchanged arts and culture in the past,he did not feel that would happen again. For one thing,he said,the arts has received the funding it was owed in 2012.

The HCA,however,has its own plans some of them big. Leavitt said the council has a five-goal agenda, geared not just to promoting the arts,but drawing out-ofcounty people to Highlands, whether to visit or stay. Among the more ambitious plans are to create an Acoustic (Folk) Music & Art Festival,a Literary Festival, establish a Peter Powell Roberts Museum,and promoting the county as a Florida art and cultural center. our new galleries have opened in the past few months,Leavitt said.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comTheir memorable and historic run came to an end Saturday as the Lady Dragons fell 62-26 in the Class 4ARegional Finals at Ft. Myers Dunbar. e just ran into a team we couldnt match up with, senior guard Alex Coyne said. That was certainly the case as the Lady Tigers broke out of the gate quickly and never looked back. A21-5 first-quarter tilt slowed down a bit in the second, but the dye was cast with the 31-11 lead at halftime. Lake Placid got the offense going a bit in the third, getting into double figures with 13 in the period, but Dunbar did them six better before adding 10 more points to the lead in the fourth. They are a very good team, head coach Jackie Coyne said. Their aggressiveness, experience and knowledge of the game exploited our youth and inexperience. In every season it is inevitably going to come to an end, with months of hard work, sacrifice and camaraderie usually being the most a team can look back on. But by extending their season this far, to reach a stage of the season the no Lady Dragon basketball team had gotten to before, well, it gives them and their community that much more to relish in memory. This was a great group of young ladies who bought intoa team concept and continually got better every practice, coach Coyne said. They were a true pleasure to coach and they will always be remembered for what they accomplished for this school. They made history They certainly did, and the 2012-13 Lady Dragons will soon stand aloft among the banners in the Malcom Bill Ross Memorial Gym. Leaving this behind as the final memory of their high school careers are seniors Coyne, Bria Wilson, IEshenay Moore, Tangie Pagan and Mazie Hanson. And while the remembrances linger, things for the team and their coach are always moving forward. Hopefully this will make them hungry, coach Coyne said of her returning underclassmen, as well as the next batch of new players trying to make their mark. Hungry to work hard in the off season to continue the trend.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKELAND When the dust settled after a scattered Saturday, three Highlands County wrestlers took their places on the medal stand to be rewarded for their efforts. Aches and pains of the two-days of hard competition against the best from around the state, smiles of elation, tears of frustration and that final moment of feeling the s ilk ribbon slide around the neck with the weight now off their shoulders and upon their chest. Red Devil Delroy Blake finished fourth among the Class 1A, 195-pound entrants, with freshman teammate Dre Neely battling back from the consolation rounds to take fifth in the 1 13-pound class. I was just happy to keep the tradition going of getting guys here, first-year head coach Blake Germain said. s tough though, for seni ors like Johnny (Baldridge and Jose (Torres) who could have gotten medals and worked so hard. But its also great that our underclassmen were able to get medals and keep the program strong moving forward. Baldridge had rebounded after a loss in his second match Friday, with a win to move him along in the consolation bracket. But the senior was outpointed in his opening match Saturday morning to end his run. Neely had followed a similar path, taking a loss to Cardinal GibbonsDominick Gibson and then getting a win to move him to Saturday. Needing one more win to assure himself a medal, Neely edged Jarred Wolfenberger 7-5 and then found himself in a rematch with Gibson in the battle for fifth. This time around, Neely got his atonement with a dominant, 8-1 win. Blake had made his Friday easy, picking up two wins to keep his workload short.

Fairmount notched its fifth win in their last six games. Bob Swamp Poulan pitched a solid game for the win. Hot-hitting Tom McNally was 3-for-3 with two doubles, and has 15 hits in his last 17 at bats hitting at a .882 clip. Gary Kindle, one of the top defensive outfielders in the league, went 3-for-3 with a double. Slick fielding mid-fielder Dick Scooter Cook was 3-for-4 with a triple. For Jarrett Ford, Hall of Famer Dave Reed went 4for-4 with a double. Larry Kelly and Ji m Guild each had two hits and a double. Jim Holmes, Da l e Thornton and Billy Searse a dded two singles apiece.

Fairmount Services rolls right along C ourtesy photo T anglewoods Randy Crawfis, left, and Clayton Farrar t eamed up to take Bronze this past weekend at a Pickleball Tournament in Ft. Myers. Special to the News-SunTanglewood pickleballers are having a very successful season. Three Tanglewood players journeyed to the Skatium in Fort Myers to play on Saturday and Sunday, Feb 16 and 17. Randy Crawfis and Clayton Farrar teamed up for a bronze medal in mens 3.0 doubles play. In mixed doubles, Randy and his wife, Danielle, made it to the bronze medal round where they were knocked out of competition. This event differed from others in which these players have competed this year. Being at an indoor venue eliminated the dramatic effect the winds can have on the game. Playing indoors was especially appreciated this past weekend as the temperatures plummeted and the winds soared. The play was in a round robin format with each team competing against other teams at the same skill level in games to 21 rather than the usual 11. Some tournaments are skill level where players are rated from 2.5 (beginner) to 5.0 (expert) while others pit players in the same age group against one another. There is lots more action in store for Tanglewoods picklers. Tanglewood will be holding the South Central Florida Pickleball League shootout on Monday, March 4 starting at 10:30. The Heartland Games for Active Adults Pickleball Tournament will also be held at Tanglewood on Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16.

But he ran into a buzzsaw early Saturday, facing off with eventual state champion Alex Krukinaski, whose first two opponents hadnt made it out of the second round. Blake battled the physically imposing Krukanski through those first two rounds, however, and scoreda takedown at one point, but was felled with just 16 seconds left. B lake bounced back by e dging Tommy Isola, 4-3, to reach the third-place match against Robert Parland. At a sleight deficit midway through the third, Blake tried to make a scoring move to get the edge. I wasnt sure how much t ime was left and I knew I needed to start scoring, he said afterward. I made a move and got caught. Its hard to settle when you had a shot at third, but Im happy to have made it here and gotten a medal. Sebrings Chris DeJesus had the toughest day Saturday, after cruising t hrough Friday with two straight wins, the Blue Streak senior saw his circumstances c hange dramatically. In his morning match Saturday, he was pushed into overtime by Lehighs Jabari Irons and, with a lead in the final seconds, was victimizedb y a reversal that gave Irons a 9-7 win. From there, it was a close, 6-3 loss to Springsteads William Swift and then a rematch with Olympic HeightsMike Aroyo, whom DeJesus had beaten 8-4 on Friday. But much like Neely got his revenge for an openingday loss to an opponent, so too did Aroyo this time around, outpointing a grimacing DeJesus 6-3 to claim the fifth-place match. s so frustrating to be in a position to get to the firstplace match and then that last-second reversal changed everything, Sebring head coach Josh Miller said. Then he was banged up with an injured knee that hurt him t he rest of the way The intensity of the battles leading to the momentary frustration of the give-andtake the what-ifs.

This years Tanglewood Luminary event was sched-u led for Feb. 13. The winds picked up and rain was forecast so the display of more than 1,000 luminaries (a candle in a bag) was post-p oned until Feb. 17. However,guest speaker Autumn Egan,from Cornerstone Hospice. was on hand Feb. 13 to address a crowd of well over 100T anglewood folk who came to learn more about the Five Wishes.

Event chairman Tom McKeever informed those in attendance that during thes even years of Tanglewoods Luminary p rogram 8,590 bags have been filled,placed around the Tanglewood clubhousea nd lit in honor of loved ones. This year,the sale of l uminaries generated $3,905 for cancer research. During the years,we have h eard from a variety of speakers. In 2007,Abe Gold a nd Al Zwerk of Tanglewood spoke about their fight with cancer. Att he second luminary event,a doctor from Atlanta told us h ow important it is to have events such as Tanglewood's that are dedicated to cancer research. A brain cancer survivor from Clearwatera ddressed the crowd in 2009 and the following year,Dr. P ankaj Patel,one of the major sponsors of the Tanglewood Residents'C ancer Benefit,talked about numerous types of cancer a nd their detection. A panel of Tanglewood neighbors spoke in 2011 about worki ng with friends,family and neighbors who are dealing w ith cancer.

A team of at least 30 volunteers was out in the cool windy weather on Sunday afternoon to fill,place andl ight the luminaries. The winds died down in the e vening and the luminaries made for an impressive sight as residents walked,r ode in golf carts or drove their cars around the half m ile circle to view the tributes to family,friends and neighbors.

Dear Abby:M y boyfriend, Doug (24 and I( 22) have been ina longdistance relationship for a year,but we were friendsf or a couple of years before that. I had never had a serious relationship before and lacked experience. Doug has not onlyb een in two other longterm relationships,but has h ad sex with more than 15 women. One of them is an amateur porn actress. I knew about this,but it didnt bother me untilr ecently. Doug had a party, and while he was drunk he t old one of his buddies in front of me that he should watch a certainp orn film starring his exgirlfriend. It made me feel a wkward. The next day he apologized. Of course,having l earned her name,I couldt help myself from searching for her on the I nternet. Now I cant stop comparing myself to her, a nd I feel intimidated and frustrated. I have been struggling with how to get over it. Doug has told me manyt imes that he loves me and I believe him. But those stupid,drunken comments really knocked me down. How do I get over my boyfriends past? Eclipsed By a StarinN ew York Dear Eclipsed: A giant s tep in the right direction would be to quit comparing yourself to a porn actress. In his addled condition, your immature boyfriendc ouldnt resist bragging to his buddies because he thought it would impress them with his prowess. If he had serious feelingsa bout her,he would still be with her,not in a relationship with you. That said,it would be in your best interest to find out if this woman really was a girlfriendor one of his one-night stands. If he is in a long-distance relationship with you and tends to be promiscuous, you should be more concerned about his judgment than how to get over his past. Dear Abby: We have always purchased rather than leased our cars. One of them has 225,000 mileso n the odometer and is running well. I have two friends who lease expensive foreign cars. Keeping the mileage down on their cars is important to them,e specially when it comes time to return them at the e nd of the lease. Because of this,I find myself driving more oftent han I should. One friend attends a weekly meeting w ith me,and were supposed to take turns driving each other every other week. But somehow I end up at the wheel more often.I d hate to start writing down our outings,but Im b eginning to feel used. While I respect their decision to lease expensiven ew cars,it is not my responsibility to keep their e xpenses down. Both of these women are in a better financial position than Ia m,although we are all comfortable. Any ideas about how to a pproach this without seeming petty? It has been g oing on for a long while and is starting to bother me. Driven Too Far in Long Beach,Calif. Dear Driven Too Far: If y ou feel that you are being taken advantage of,then you probably are. I recommend you wean these ladies off your chauffeur services by being less available when they need ar ide. And if you are asked why,remind them of your o riginal agreement to share the driving duties 50-50.

Boyfriends x-rated experience leaves woman feeling blue Dear Abby Associated PressNEW ORLEANS Grammy-winning rapper Lil Waynes skate park project in the citys rebuilding Lower 9th Ward is off to a bumpy start. The building that houses the park didnt pass a city electrical inspection and had to be re-wired, and only a handful of children are able to skate at a time because of a shortage of staffing. Many days,the Trukstop skate park named after the rappers skateboarding-inspired Trukfit clothing line hasnt been open at all. e really put the cart before the horse on this project,and right now were at a crossroads, said Ward Mack McLendon,who manages the facility. By GEIR MOULSON Associated PressBERLIN A Romanian drama that centers on a womans effort to cover up her sons responsibility for an accident in which a boy is fatally injured won the Berlin film festivals top Golden Bear award on Saturday. Childs Pose,directed by Calin Peter Netzer,emerged as the winner from a field of 19 films that included a strong eastern European contingent this year the 63rd edition of the event,the first of the years major European film festivals. Netzer said he was a little bit speechlessat the award. The tale of corruption and guilt depicts the efforts of an upperclass mother,played by Luminita Gheorghiu,to bribe witnesses to give false statements and keep her son the driver,who was speeding at the time of the accident out of prison. This is about a ... pathological relationship between mother and son,he told reporters later. The rest is really just a backdrop, Netzer told reporters,stressing that it is a very universal story and that corruption is not something which is only taking place in Romania. A runner-up Silver Bear went to An Episode In the Life of an Iron Picker,in which a Bosnian Roma, or gypsy,couple re-enact their own struggle to get treatment after their baby died in the womb. The movie was made on a tiny budget. Romanian movie Childs Pose wins at Berlin fest Lil Waynes New Orleans skate park hits more snags

C M Y K LIVING 10B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, February 20, 2013 Hope everyone had a nice Valentines Day. I enjoyed an ice cut of beef topped with broiled Blue Cheese at a hip l ittle restaurant in Avon Park. This week Im at Lake Shore Medical Center in Lake City,o ffering support to the Morrison team up here with the r oll out of the Great Living Menu. This hospital is 100 years old and I have to wonder how much focus was on diets back when this place opened.A ctually,I wonder how and what kinds of food was served t o the patients then. I wonder if everyone ate the same things and how much emphasis wasp ut on the control of food borne illnesses. I n our kitchens we go to every length possible to prevent possibilities of food borne illn ess. We wash all our fresh vegetables in a sanitizing solution created for fruits and vegetables. We take the temperature of all proteins upon arrivalf rom our purveyors and keep a log of it. In the event of a protein arriving and it does not reach a safe temperature of 41 degrees or lower,it is refused. A t home we need to be aware and careful of spreading g erms and pathogens around our homes. Believe it or not,t he three things in our homes that have a very possibility of spreading germs are our remotes,our keyboard and our cell phones.
