She has been honored by the Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce three different years; been a mentor with Take Stock in Children; and worked with Keep Lake Placid Beautiful,among many other volunteer organizations. Asked what she thought was her greatest accomplishment she replied, When I started working for the town there was a time when we had to cash in some certificates of deposit to make payroll. At that time I determined when I retired I would not leave the town needing revenue. After many years of trying to keep expenses down, paying cash for everything we purchased due to the good advice of Raymond McIntyre,the countys property appraiser the town has a reserve account of over $600,000 and over $1 million cash in the general fund checking account.

C M Y K By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN A ssociated PressNEW ORLEANS BP f ailed to implement a new safety plan on the ill-fated Deepwater Horizon drilling rig even though the company realized a blowout in the Gulf of Mexico was its greatest danger,an expert witnessf or people and businesses suing the company testified T uesday. University of CaliforniaBerkeley engineering professor Robert Bea was the first witness at a civil trial tod etermine how much more BP and other companies should pay for the spill. Bea said BP PLC didnt implement a two-year-old safetym anagement program on the rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. s a classic failure of management and leadership in BP,said Bea,a former BP consultant who also investigated the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill and New Orleans levee breaches after HurricaneK atrina in 2005. The London-based company has said its Operating Management Systemwas designed to drive a rigorous and systematic approach to safety and risk management.D uring cross-examination by a BP lawyer,Bea said the c ompany made significant effortsto improve safety management as early as 2003. However,BP only implem ented its new safety plan at just one of the seven rigs the company owned or leased in the Gulf at the time of the disaster. B ea said it was tragic and egregiousthat BP didt apply its own safety program to the Deepwater Horizon before the Macondo well blowout triggered the explosion that killed 11 workers and spawned the massive spill. Transocean owned the rig; BP leased it. A plaintiffslawyer who questioned Bea showed him a transcript of a deposition of Tony Hayward,who was BPs CEO at the time of the disaster. Hayward was asked if the deadly April 20,2010,b lowout could have been averted if BP had implemente d the safety management program in the Gulf. There is possible potential,Hayward responded. Undoubtedly. B ea said BPs culture of every dollar countswas reflected in a May 2009 email sent by BP well team leader John Guide:The DWH orizon embraced every dollar matters since I arrived 18 months ago,Guide wrote. e have saved BP millionsa nd no one had to tell us. In a report prepared for the trial,Bea concluded that BPs process safety failures were a cause of the blowout. Financially,BP had the resources to effectively puti nto place a process safety system that could have prev ented the Macondo disaster,Bea testified. Bea said he had warned BP management several years before the Gulf rig explosiont hat culture is keto the compans ability to operate safely. Bea said the company didnt heed his warnings. ou still dont get it,he r ecalled telling BP officials in 2007. You have not implemented any recommendations. Process safety isd eadly serious,and youve turned it into a traveling roadshow. During cross-examination, Bea said those remarks were in response to a skit that BP presented at a conference thatd idnt reflect his views on safety management. A s he questioned Bea,BP attorney Mike Brock recited a long list of steps that BP took to improve safety,citing them as evidence that thec ompany wasnt cutting corners in the area of safety. The case went to trial Monday after attempts to reach an 11th-hour settlementf ailed.

At the same time he shared Schulers concerns. We dont want the staff or council to have to spend any time on this, he said. In answer to concerns a bout vulgar language or repeated rants by one person,Anderson said,This is not confrontation; its a step back method,and a much cheaper way to get comments then using mail-outs.

C M Y K T his is an idea proposed by Missy Albritton. After hearing on the news the number of children in need of stable homes in Florida,and counting 700 churches in Highlands County,it occurred to her that the Christian community couldh elp in a practical way. Her vision is to connect church congreg ations with foster children or orphans. Albritton hopes congregations bond together around a needy child. One familyc ould adopt,or foster the child; the rest of the congregation could help financially a nd in other ways to raise her or him. Albritton calls her project 1-1-1 one child,one family,one congregation. We think this is both a practical and spiritual idea,with great merit. O n March 22,the Heartland for Children plans a special meeting at the H ighlands Park Church of the Nazarene in Lakeland. Heartland for Children supervises adoptions for the state. The agency is in no way connected with 1-1-1. We urge church pastors and lay leaders t o look into this positive,child-saving program. As Christians we have a respons ibility to live our beliefs. Word is getting out,and people are responding. The meeting Friday,March2 2 is the perfect time to discover what is involved in adopting or fostering,and h ow the process works. A free dinner is being served. Albritton asks that people RSVP her so organizers will know how much food to prepare especially if a church sends ag roup. Go to 111projectsl@gmail.com or call Albritton at (863ve your name,e-mail address,and number attending. The Lakeland event is designed particu larly for pastors,representatives of a congregation,or families considering adopting or fostering a child. Albritton said replies received by March 8 are entered into a $100 gift cardd rawing the night of the gathering. For so long now,our elected representatives and senators have squabbled and gotten nothing done. Within days unless some sort of middle ground is found federal budget cuts will make ith arder than ever to provide for our most vulnerable children. I s beginning to seem as if our politicians could care less about actually solving problems. Its time we citizens startedt aking initiative. Even better,here is an opportunity to d o the right thing,at the right time,for the right reasons. The Highlands Park Church of the Nazarene is at 4777 Lakeland Highlands Road in Lakeland.

A land filled withg enerous-hearted souls who showe red the needy the world over with their abundant blessings. Y ou see,America was founded by a handful of God-fearing patriots who didnt always agree but believed certain things likel ife,liberty and the personal pursuit of happiness were worth dying for.And to ensure their ideas would survive the ages,they craft-e d one of the most revered documents ever put to p aper,the United States Constitution. I t wasnt long before this exceptional nation became the envy of those who thirsted for freedom and the enemy of those whod espised it. Some loathed America to the point of making threats while others declared war. But a certain few understood defeat wasi ncreasingly less likely and instead devised a plan to take down America from within,one small step at a time. The leader of the former Soviet Union Communist Party,Nikita Khrushchev promised his beloved Communism would bury the capitalistic West without declaring war.The plan was outlined in a fascinating book called The Naked Communist,written in 1958 by a man named Cleon Skousen who accurately warned Americans of troubles to come unless things changed. Skousen laid out the dangers Americans faced,point by point,almost as a Communist roadmap to Americas demise: Progressives captured the Democratic Party (goal number 15),civil rights actions were taken in courts to weaken basic American institutions(16 the educational system was infiltrated (17rioting like the Occupy movement was encouraged (19the press was infiltrated (20domination of the big screen and t elevision waves (21cultural stand ards of morality were broken down (25homosexuality,degeneracy and promiscuity werep resented as normal(26churche s were infiltrated by those promoting social justice( 27),prayer in schools was elimin ated (28 Moreover,the Constitution and founding f athers were discredited (29 & 30) and American culture belittled by those promoting cultural sensitivity trainingseminars similart o one recently uncovered by a video showing employees pounding on tables while chanting antiAmerican rants led by am an representing the organization,Souder, B etances,and Associate, reaping more than $3.3m illion taxpayer funds, according to USASpending.gov. Skousen may have been a prophet,seeing that mosto f his predictions came to pass. Too clever to be labeled Communists,they chose the name Progressivand in then ame of change set out to dismantle the Constitution, piece by piece. Progress was slow but steady,that is until their savior,Barack Obama,arrived. And no one was outraged because the Communist mission was complete. As former KGB agent,Yuri Besmenov so eloquently described,without war or bloodshed,America and her people were demoralized,no longer having the reasoning ability to distinguish right from wrong,or to comprehend the immensity of the treasure thed buried just outside the gates of Hell.

We had been in touch with the golf course as far as three weeks prior to Saturdays game. This to the fact that I was told that they would contact other golf courses about free games. That was not done. That they were going to fax a flyer to the other golf courses. That was not done. That I tried three weeks to talk to the golf pro at different times and even went out there to see how things were going. I even met with the restaurant manager and agreed on prices for the lunch and what was to be serverd at lunch time. I and the golf pro even came up with a price for the golf game and golf cart charge for the tournament. I was told what it would cost me to have signs made up by them. However,I had a local business make up the signs and save the center monies. I had even put the golf tournament in the local newspapers as to the time, location,and the cost. I went around and talked to different local businesses and recevied funding for ads. I even showed those businesses a flyer that was made up by the golf course of the time,date and cost. I even contacted the local radio station and they were going to announce it on the radio station. This was not going to cost me anything in return for a foursome ticket. I had different golfers that I knew that was going to be there for the tournament. I have times,dates and names of different people that I talked to,or left messages for the golf pro to contact me. I even told the golfc ourse that I never put on a golf tournament and that any advice that they could give me would help. They said they would. That was about six months before the date was set. I had a person that was going to play and that person was told that there was no tournament for Wredes. Now you tell me why the tournament was canceled and why I was not told prior to the Friday before since I do have times,dates and notes what was going to be done by the golf course. Thank you for your reply to my first letter to the editor, Mr. Blindman. David Wrede SebringPartnership should not lead to strip of fundsEditor: In Sundays editorial there is mistake in reference to Art & Culture (A&C overlooked and done out of its mandated allotment for years -the money has since been given to Heartland Cultural Alliance.The fact is Heartland Cultural Alliance (HCAver received money from the Tourist Development Council (TDCThe funds,which are only a fraction of what A&C have been done out ofwere put in a TDC fund designated for A&C. This fund is under threat of being eliminated and nevermore replenished by the TDC plan being voted on this week.Their plan is is inconsistent with counties that are successful in promoting and growing their cultural tourism.Palm Beach, Miami-Dade,Sarasota and St. Johns (St. Augustine)c ounties,to name a few,all have a designated percentage of tourist tax funds going to A&C. The proposed TDC plan and the impediments they place on monies designated to promote A&C seriously hamper the countys ability to tap into the lions share of the tourist market. Cultural tourism is not only the largest,but the fastest growing segment of the market. And here we sit,a beautifully endowed magnet to the cultural tourist,languishing for lack of vision of a TDC inexperienced in promoting A&C. They should partner with A&C not strip its funding. We need to work together. There is much to gain. Fred Leavitt,President Heartland Cultural AllianceTDC picture painted too prettyEditor: Answering Feb. 20 Flourishing art: The story paints a much prettier picture of the Tourist Development Tax than is true. We were told that this tax would bring summer tourists to Highlands. In the six years from April 5 to Oct. 11,tax dollars dropped by 37 percent,due to less tourists. We said administration costs would be way too high; they promised they would never go above 29 percent of the money taken in. Now they tell us they want to take 42 percent off the top for administration and leave 58 percent of the tax for what it was intended to do. They promised 10 percent of the tax would go to the lakes of Highlands County; with only 58 percent left, lakes would only get 5.8 per-c ent of the tax. That is,if they dont decide to use the lakes money for something else as they have done in the past. We asked for a 10-year sunset to be put in the TDC plan so we could see how the plan worked and the voters would have some say and control over TDC. We were told by Ross MacBeth (book 19 page 241 D) that there was no need for a sunset. The tax would only remain in place for 15 years. Now ask for a sunset to be placed in the plan and the standard answer is No,the voters are not smart enough to make that decision. Thirty percent of the 58 percent is only 17.4 percent of the total going to advertising grants; that is a drop from 61 percent of what we have now. Sixty percent of the 58 percent is 34.8 percent of the total. And they are telling us they will use this to promote Highlands; just trust us,we know we can do a good job. Oh by the way,they are asking for a 50 percent raise of the tax,from 2 to 3 percent. Need more money to do a good job. Are they telling us the truth this time? If so,they will not object to asking the voters if they want a sunset in the TDC plan in the 2014 election and if so,putting the first 10-year sunset on the ballot during the 2016 election,so we voters can say if we want to keep the TDC or not.

C M Y K News-Sun staffSEBRING For 50 years the Sebring Noon Rotary Club has been servings paghetti dinners in a way to benefit variosu youth projects it helps fund in the city. This years spaghetti dinner will from 4:30-7:30 p.m. today att he Highlands County Fairgrounds. Bill Jernigan began in 1965 on the sauce committee under Jimmy Maxcy and started helping his father-inlaw,Louis Alsmeyer,as the assistant general chairman, later taking on more responsibilities as Alsmeyers health began to fail. In 1982 Bills son,Larry,joined the family veterinarian practice, the Sebring club and the familys tradition of being involved in this fundraiser. Larry Jernigan now serves as Bills assistant chairman as well as sauce committee chairman. George Hensley,Ernie Breed and Ed Koch were all part of the original committees and they also continue to offer their help each year in making sure the event takes place with few problems. That first spaghetti dinner profited the club about $600, which was used to improve Teen Town,nowHighlands Little Theatre. About 800 dinners were sold the following year. Since 1978,the profits have been nearly $248,000, and about 2,000 dinners are served each year. Water is boiled in two 55gallon drums and then about 400 pounds of dry spaghetti is cooked in eight 15-gallon pots. It takes about 700 pounds of lean meat and more than 100 gallons of tomato products and other condiments to make the spaghetti sauce. Along with the spaghetti, about 24 cases of green beans flavored with smoked ham hocks and chopped fresh onions are simmered in four 20-gallon pots. Cole slaw,rolls,butter and cookies will help round out the meal and are added just as the dinners are served. For the first time,this year there will also be a Drivethrutable for take-out dinners. The Drive-thrutable will be in front of the ticket booth. Bill Jernigan,general chairman of the spaghetti dinner,said there will also be the usual four serving lines of Rotarians,with two at the entrance to the building allowing the eat-incustomers to go right in to the tables set up inside. The two take-outlines are staffed behind the kitchen that plate the meals in fold-over trays. The Rotarians,he said, normally serve about 1,100 take-outsand 500 eat-in dinners. Sebring Middle School and Hill-Gustat Middle School bands will help sell tickets. The stage bands will play a concert during the dinner. Sebring Rotary Clubs have supported school bands since 1926. Any food left over after the dinners are served is donated to the New Testament Mission and the Highlands County Jail. Tickets for adults is $7, and $5 for children under 12.

C M Y K By JAMES L. ROSICA Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A federal appeals court Tuesday upheld a temporaryb an on a law requiring drug testing of Floridas welfare recipients. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlantar uled that a lower court was right to temporarily halt enforcement of the states drug-testing program. The opinion said the state of Florida hadnt shown a substantial special need for such mandatory drug t esting. The ruling,authored by Circuit Judge RosemaryB arkett,added that there is nothing inherent to the cond ition of being impoverished that supports the conclusion that there is a concrete dangerthat impoverished individuals are pronet o drug use. Tuesdays decision means t hat the law will continue to not be enforced as the courts continue to resolve theu nderlying legal issues. Florida officials previousl y argued that Temporary Assistance for Needy Families,or TANF,benefitsa re intended to ensure famil y stability and child welfare,and that drug use subverts both of those aims. But opponents said drug testing as a condition of get-t ing welfare benefits is an unconstitutional search and seizure. Floridas law requires welfare applicants to pay fora nd pass a drug test to get benefits. The drug testing was in effect in the latter half of 2011 before being halted by a federal judge. The American CivilL iberties Union had challenged the las constitut ionality. T he state then appealed the preliminary injunction to the 11th Circuit. The circuit courts opinion also dismissed thes tates argument that the testing for drugs without suspicion is OK because potential recipients sign a consent form. T he court said the state cannot condition welfare benefits on the applicants forced waiverof his constitutional right. Follow Rosica at http://twitt er.com/jlrosica Certified Municipal Clerk.

C M Y K alms.comBRASELTON, Ga. Aston M artin Racing will have two factory Aston Martin Vantage GTE entries on the grid for the 61st Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida. After a preseason test session at Portimo in Portugal, A MR will test both cars at Road Atlanta before heading to south to Sebring for the o pening round of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrn on Saturday, March 16. Darren Turner, Stefan Mcke and Bruno Senna will drive the No. 97 Aston Martin at Sebring, and Canadian Paul Dalla Lana, American Billy Johnson and ex-AMR factory driver Pedro Lamy driving the No. 007 at Sebring. Dane Cameron, another of A mericas young road-racing talents, will test with the team at Atlanta. Although this isnt the first time we have run the new Vantage GTE, its the first time weve been able to run it in anger and put some serious mileage on the car Turner said of the test in Portugal. It does feel like a very good step forward. The team has done a great job over the winter and made some significant improvements. For me personally, it was probably as exciting to drive for the first time as the first drive of the DBR9. I have a really good feeling about the car and Im looking forward to the next test in Atlanta in a few weeks time.Greaves Sebring Lineup Greaves Motorsport is banking on three faces familiar to American endurance racing for its push to a P2 victory at Sebring.

By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI The Miami Marlinsballpark sat mostly empty Monday, which will likely be the case all year, and team owner Jeffrey Loria leaned his back against the bar in a hospitality area, sipping water in circumstances that warranted stronger stuff. Happy hour, it was not. As part of a three-day public relations blitz, Loria met with a dozen writers and tried to put a positive spin on his widely mocked offseason decisions. After the Marlinsdismal first season in their new home, Loria said, the roster dismantling he ordered was the right move because they were headed in the wrong direction. He said a return to payroll austerity was needed because the Marlins lost tens of millions of dollars in 2012 after an unprecedented spending spree. The Marlins will eventually spend again, and they want to sign precocious slugger Giancarlo Stanton to a multiyear contract, Loria said. He said he understands why fans are upset but hopes they will embrace this years young, unproven team, which many expect to lose 100 games. e had to turn back the clock for the moment and push the restart button, Loria said, and get these young players in here and get them together and look where we are in another year or so. His 30-minute session with reporters was part of an effort to rehabilitate the reputation of the Marlins and their owner. Angry fans have complained they expected the new ballpark to mean competitive payrolls for more than just one season. Instead they endured the latest in a series of payroll Loria says dismantling of Marlins was needed See LORIA, Page 4B Ed talks racing, Raceway MCTphoto Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria answers questions from the media in the Diamond Club at the Marlins Stadium Monday. News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Kelly Broen and the Lady Blue Streaks followed up t heir weekend sweep with a team win over Winter Haven Monday. By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING After a vict ory-laden weekend, the Sebring girls tennis team a dded another win to their regular season record M onday, topping visiting Winter Haven 6-1. T he only loss of the day came in an intense, nail-biting match at No. 2 Singles, with Joy Donglasan and Lady Blue Devil Ali Mann battling. Mann won the first set, taking a 7-3 tiebreaker to win 7-6, before Donglasan bounced back with a 6-3 win in the second set. But then, in a marathon of a finish, Mann outlasted the Sebring senior by a 108 count for the win. Nisha Patel and Morgan Heston were also tested a bit, at No. 1 and 4 Singles, respectively, but both came away with 6-3, 6-4 wins over Baylee Lockwood and Katie Widner. At Nos 3 and 5 Singles, though, Kelly Broen and Micaela DeVane only lost three games total in their straight-set wins. Broen toped Payton Attoway 6-3, 6-0, while DeVane went 6-2, 6-1 over Bailey Morgan. Donglasan then got a little payback as she teamed with Patel to take an 8-3 win over Lockwood and Mann at No. 1 Doubles. And Broen and DeVane took care of business at N o. 2 Doubles, cruisin g past Attoway and Widner by an 8-2 count. N ow at 8-1 on the season, and having won seven i n a row since their loss at Lakeland in the second m atch of the season, the Streaks were at Frostproof T uesday and head to George Jenkins Thursday. And the win comes off a dominant weekend which saw a Lady Streak sweep of the Heartland Conference Tournament. In the five-school field, each of the Sebring girls worked their way through Fridays docket and reached Saturdays finale. Five Lady Green Dragons also made it to the championship matches and helped the team claim second place overall, just ahead of Hardee. But it was the Streaks who came away victorious as Patel got it started when she topped Lake Placids Hannah Waller in the No. 1 Singles final. Donglasan won a hardfought, No. 2 match over Lady Dragon Stephanie Rodriguez and Broen went 6-2, 6-0 over Hardees Caroline Durrance at No. 3. Heston and DeVane then made it a singles sweep with wins at Nos 4 and 5 over Lady Wildcat Madison Burnett and Lake Placids Rachel Shattler, respectively.

How about the emergence of the readoption and whether it will impact this years NFLdraft and free agency? Arundown of 10 story lines, none of them related to Manti Teo, from the NFLcombine: 1. WHOS NO. 1? Expect another shake-up atop thed raft board after this weeke nds craziness. Defensive tackle Star Lotulelei went home after being diagnosed with a heart condition, cornerback Dee Milliner is preparing for shoulder surgery and offensive tackleE ric Fisher appears to be c losing the gap on Luke Joeckel, the presumptive No. 1 pick (hello, Kansas City? Some analysts are moving guard Chance Warmack and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd into the top five. 2. MEDICALEXAMS: Nothing is more important at the combine than passing a physical, and nothing can h urt a draft prospects stock faster than a bad exam. Just ask Lotulelei, who has generally been ranked in the top three since the college season ended. After doctors diagnosed the Utah star with a heart condition, he was sent home to see a specialist. Before he even left town, some teams were already saying hed be off their draft board if he couldnt get cleared. 3. GOING DEEP. Teams looking for an Andrew Luck o r a Robert Griffin III or even a Jake Long will be hard pressed to find a franchise anchor at the top of the 2013 draft. That means the big winners will be the teams looking to fill in around Luck, Griffin or Cam Newton because this years talent pool runs deep. And teams may find more value in dealing for Alex Smith or Matt Flynn than drafting Geno Smith or Matt Barkley, and those rumors are already flying. 4. HOLD THE LINE.

C M Y K can show they mean it. Of the 333 players who attended this weeks combine, 112 (33.6 percent) were either offensive or defensive linemen. Fans might want to start learning names like Corey Lemonier (Auburn DE Eric Herman (Ohio State OL). 5. CHECK ITOUT. This years rookie class will keep the NFLs background checkers busy through draft weekend. There are plenty of concerns that need to be sorted out, from drug use and alcohol abuse to academic woes and criminal allegations. Teams want some sort of certainty that theyre not going to be risking too much by using a high pick on a talented player such as Alec Ogletree (DUI arrest on Feb. 16) and then having to contend with more problems. 6. BELIEVE YOUR EYES. Fans become enamored with things like times in the 40-yard dash and the number of reps players have on the bench press. Scouts prefer to look at the tape. The reality is the workout warriors (see Mike Mamula shorts dont always meet the expectations in pads. Dont believe it? Here are the top five 40 times since 2000: Trindon Holliday, Jacoby Ford, Chris Johnson, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Demarcus Van Dyke. 7. FEEL-GOOD STORIES. Defensive lineman Walter Stewart of Cincinnati and Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones were told they would have to give up football in college after doctors discovered congenital spinal conditions. Both have been cleared to play and hope to embark on NFLcareers. Then theres defensive back D.J. Hayden, who tore a heart vein in a practice collision in November and was rushed into surgery. Hes now on verge of fulfilling a lifelong dream. 8. QB QUANDARY.While there is debate about who will be the first quarterback taken this year Matt Barkley, Mike Glennon, Geno Smith or someone else few analysts believe theres a top-10 QB available. 9. SEC RULES. No conference has been better at winning national championships over the last decade and now the SECs domination is carrying over to the NFL. The SEC easily had the highest number of players at the combine (73 have the highest total of firstround picks in April, too, thanks in large part to the contingents from Alabama and LSU. The ACC had the second-most invites (43 with the Pac-12 third (38 10. GOING GLOBAL. American football is suddenly becoming a hit overseas, too. Players at this years combine were born or reared in the following countries: Australia, England, Estonia, Ghana, Germany, Japan, Liberia and Tonga. Not everyone believes American football is a great sport, as defensive lineman Magus Hunt, a native of Estonia, can attest.But its a start for a league that is trying to give its game a global spin.

Loria is widely viewed as the culprit. s a constant, sometimes personal pounding, Marlins president David Samson said after Loria had left the room. s hard for anyone. On top of that, youre writing checks. Its hard. But I understand every side. Loria remained silent through the offseason but h ired a national public relations firm, and his attempt at damage control began Sunday with an open letter to fans published in several media outlets. He plans to make his spring-training debut Tuesday and face TVcameras, hoping to change the subject. Maybe we could take a little timeout here, he said, a PR aide at his side. Loria expressed sympathy for fans and his departed players, and saved his harshest words for the Miami Dolphins, who are seeking tax money to help upgrade their stadium. The Dolphins have s tressed that their plan is m uch different from the widely criticized financing agreement for the Marlins ballpark, built mostly with public money. That smear campaign? Loria said. Im sure its just their effort in order to get their deal done. Listen, Ih ope the Dolphins get their deal. But it has nothing to do with us. Loria conceded the 2012 season was awful. He went on a spending binge and added All-Stars Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell, along with manager Ozzie Guillen, but M iami finished last in the NL East. All are now gone, with Reyes and Buehrle going to Toronto via a blockbuster trade. e didnt break up the 1 927 Yankees, Loria said. e broke up a losing ballclub that was going nowhere. L ast week, Reyes said Loria encouraged him to buy a house in South Florida, then traded him two days later. What you were told is inaccurate, Loria said. I havent told him to buy a house. Stanton was among those upset by the trade, and theres speculation hell soon join the long list of Marlins stars to depart over the years. Loria said hed like to sign Stanton to a long-term deal, but not this season. ere absolutely hoping that moment will come, Loria said. We will cross that bridge at the appropriate moment, absolutely The projected payroll for t his year is less than $45 million, which would likely be the smallest in the majors. Loria said he expects it to begin rising again, but it may be a long time before the Marlins return to last years $90 million level. ere never going to get to $100 million, Loria said. e dont have the TVcontract to do that. The Marlinslocal TVrevenue is the lowest in the majors under a deal that runsu ntil 2020, Loria said. Attendance is another problem. The turnstile count in the n ew ballpark last year was 1.4 million, 1 million below expectations, Samson said. He said season ticket sales were barely 12,000, and for this year theyre below 5,000, with most of that drop-off projected even before the Toronto trade that so angered fans. Many of them want Loria out, but he said the teams not for sale. Im interested in making this successful, he said. And t hen he took another sip of water. Continued from 1B Loria hopes to sign Stanton sometime then bested Hardees Ashley Baker and Durrance in No. 1 Doubles and Broen and Heston finished it off with a win over Lady Dragons Claire LeBlanc and Jenna Blount at No. 2. It was a great tournament for the girls, Sebring head coach Jane Hollinger said. The set-up and atmosphere really helps the girls get ready for Districts. Those arent until the first week of April, but the way the Streaks are going now, Districts cant get here fast enough. Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Nisha Patel hammers this backhand Monday during her win against Baylee Lockwood of Winter Haven. Sebring makes it 7 straight Continued from 1B NFL combine answers some questions, raises a lot more By PAULNEWBERRY Associated PressD AYTONABEACH Enough with the snarky comments about Danica Patrick. Sure, she gets more attent ion than her accomplishments warrant because shes a p retty face competing in a male-dominated sport. W ho knows if shell ever be a series champion because, q uite frankly, its a rare breed that climbs to the top of any sport. Maybe shes destined to be a middle-of-the-pack racer her entire career, someone who can be counted on for solid results and an occasional win. But, you know what? She deserves to be here. That was evident for 199 laps at the Daytona 500 on Sunday, when she started from the pole, led a total of five laps and ran near the front for most of The Great American Race. At these speeds, shes very comfortable, five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson said. She held a great wheel. She was smooth and predictable. She was able to take advantage of the runs when she had them. Then, the guy who had just won the sports biggest race for the second time doled out the ultimate compliment. She was just a car on the track, Johnson said. I didnt think about it being Danica. She was just another car on the track that was fast. P atrick finally looked like a NASCAR Cup rookie on her last trip around the 2 1/2-mile oval. S uddenly, she was timid and unsure of herself. R unning third when the white flag waved, she never g ave herself a chance to challenge the two guys in front of h er, Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. In fact, she appeared to be going in reverse, hung out going down the backstretch as five cars zoomed past her. She came across the line in eighth, a bit of a letdown to be sure. Surely, the people who tuned in only because of Danicamania were disappointed she didnt make a more aggressive run for the win. Patience, everyone. This is a driver who cut her teeth racing sleek, open-wheel cars. She hasnt figured out how to win in one of these bulky stock cars. I know Ill be better next time, Patrick vowed. Shortly after the green flag came out displayed by none other than retired NFL star Ray Lewis Patrick was quickly passed by the other car on the front row, driven by Jeff Gordon. But, near the midway point of the race, she came out of the pits in second and sped past Michael Waltrip for the lead the first woman ever to lead a Cup race under fulls peed conditions (Janet Guthrie, the pioneer for women racers like Patrick, led a few laps under yellow in the 1 970s). Patrick wasnt out front for long, but she was never too f ar back. Her biggest stumbles came i n the pits, where she kept spinning her wheels trying to g et away quickly from the box at the far end of the lane, losing valuable track position time and time again. Otherwise, it was a largely drama-free day, which is just the way you want things to be on a restrictor-plate track such as Daytona, where the field gets all bunched up and the slightest miscue can take out a whole pack of cars. Patrick felt so comfortable driving at nearly 200 mph that she spent much of the afternoon going over strategy in her head, envisioning what the final lap might look like and what she might do to get around the cars ahead of her. Passing was at a premium in the new Gen-6 stock car, with only the most experienced drivers knowing how to pick their spots and generate the sort of momentum needed to get around someone. Not ashamed to ask for advice, Patrick chatted up her crew chief and spotter over the radio, picking their brains on what strategy might work at the end of the race. How am I gonna do this? P atrick recalled thinking. I didnt know what to do exactly. Maybe thats just my inexperience. Maybe it was not m e thinking hard enough. Im not sure. I was a little bit uncertain how to do that. C learly, she didnt figure it out. B ut its time to accept shes not just a well-connected f emale taking up the spot of a more deserving male. Danica belongs. Seriously, shes just the 13th driver to lead laps in Americas two most famous races, the Indianapolis 500 and now the Daytona 500, joining the likes of Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt, Johnny Rutherford, Bobby Unser, Tony Stewart and Tim Richmond. s going to be a lot of fun to watch her progress, said Earnhardt, who has long been the sports most popular driver but might have some competition. Every time Ive seen her in a pretty hectic situation, shes always remained really calm. Shes got a great level head. Shes a racer. She knows whats coming. Shes smart about her decisions. She knew what to do today as far as track position and not taking risks. Lets have no more questions about whether she belongs. Disappointing finish, but Danica belongs

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club donated $1,500 to the Boy Scouts at their meeting on Feb. 22. Proceeds were from the World Famous Wild Game Dinner. Scouts Forest Ritenour and Matthew Kaleky spoke to the Rotarians about some of their clubs Eagle Scout projects. They planted 30 trees in Highlands Hammock State Park,built a bicycle park at a pre-school and planted more than 100 trees in Hickory Hammock. Hickory Hammock is an equestrian park on U.S. 98 in Highlands County. The troop has adopted Hickory Hammock as a project. Ritenour and Kaleky attended the 2012 National Order of the Arrow Convention in 2012. Only scouts who best exemplify the scout oath and law in their daily lives are invited. Ritenour said,s like the national honor club of scouts. More than 8,000 people were in attendance. They spent a week learning about skills and training. They also shared fellowship with other scouts. Scouts talk about their projects, accept check from Rotarians Special to the News-SunSEBRING On Feb 8, close to 200 of Tanglewoods fun residents flocked to the clubhouse to play blackjack, sevens,poker,and other games of chance. Between turns at the tables,the hungry folk downed several pounds of hot dogs,pulled pork sandwiches and chips. What happens in Vegas doesnt always stay in Vegas. When co-chairs David Bernella and David DeLucia totaled up the nights haul they were able to write a check to the New Testament Mission in downtown Sebring. The Mission,now in its 37th year,feeds more than 100 people daily and helps those in need with utility bills and more.

Once purchased,the rose h as to be planted in the correct location for sun,with good potting soil and soila mendments,adequate water supply,mulch for the s ummer months and fertilizer.The bush has to be watched for disease and insect damage and treated for them.

Good job. T he duck-houses are all rented out. We cant wait to s ee those little ducklings with their mamas. They seem to be all wood ducks s o far. Finches are still swarming. Their coats are turning yellow,which means there getting dressed for their journey north. It wontb e long. Ah,spring.

C M Y K Dear Abby: I n eed help and I cant talk to anyone Ik now,so Im pouring my heart out to you. My husband is addicted to onlinep orn. Our sex life has suffered massively because of i t. He seems uninterested in sex with me. I had a feeling that it might bes omething or someone else. M y womans intuition told me there had to be a reason for him turning to porn,so I checked our computers history log andf ound he has been surfing gay porn. He does watch s traight porn,but now peppers it with male-on-male porn as well. I t has shattered my world. I dont know what t o think or what to do. I cant discuss this with my family. They would neverv iew him in the same way again. Help! J. in Brighton,England D ear J.: Your husband may be curious,bisexual o r have discovered (late that he is gay. It happens. You need to have a frank conversation with him. Remain calm,stay stronga nd remember that you, too,are entitled to a sex life. You have nothing to lose by discussing this,and everything to gain. If you need more help afterward,consider goingo nline and contacting the Straight Spouse Network at w ww.straightspouse.org Dear Abby: I have been in therapy for four years. I like my therapist,who hash elped me immensely. However,over the past year she has become increasingly tardy in keeping her appointment times. I understand there are sometimes emergencies, but being a half-hour late every week is excessive. I feel it is disrespectful to me. She keeps saying I just dont understand. How can I get across to her how frustrated I am? Or do I need to find a new therapist? By the Clock in Connecticut Dear By the Clock: Tell your therapist exactly how this is affecting you and ask what her problem is. She owes you an explanation. I agree that being late for your appointment is disrespectful if it happens regularly. You may need to find another therapist. If thats the case,be sure to tell her why you are leaving. It takes courage to be assertive,but it will helpy ou in your personal growth. Dear Abby: Please help me with a delicate situationb etween me and my husband of seven years. For our 20th anniversary, my first husband gave me a diamond anniversary ring. After running across ita gain,I have recently started wearing it. M y husband is very offended that I have chosen to do this. I wear it on them iddle finger of my left hand. (The knuckle on my r ight hand was broken when I was a teen and it wont fit on that hand.) I have tried explaining that there is no sentimentalr eason for wearing the ring. Its just a beautiful p iece of jewelry. He doest want me to wear it at all,but I do. Do you havea ny advice? Likes the Sparkle in Wisconsin D ear Likes the Sparkle: While the ring may be just a beautifulp iece of jewelry to you,to your husband it may symbolize the 20-plus years y ou spent with someone else. Ask if he would mind i f you had the stones in the ring remounted into something you could wear on your right hand or consider selling it and usingt he money to buy another piece of jewelry that would be less threatening to your current spouse.

People in the field of psychology call this catastrophising.(my dictionary cant spell this word). Think of it this way. Someone in your family did not call you when you thought they were supposed to. You immediately start thinking of everything bad that could have happened to them. You work yourself intoa tizzy and when they eventually call. they just forgot. All the while you are upset; your adrenalin is pumping and you cant settle down. We have set ourselves up for this by allowing our minds to run rampant thinking the worst. Did you know that we can do just the opposite of this and set ourselves up for more disappointment? This is when our imagination takes a simple event we are going to attend and makes it much more glamorous and special than it really is. One of these events is the holidays. We spend hours dreaming of how wond erful it is going to be only to be disappointed by its inability to live up to our expectations. Our wedding day can do that to us too. We expect that this is going to be the greatest day of our lives and if that were to happen what would that say for the rest of our marriage. Our imaginations cause us to live in a fairy tale where everything works out and then when it doesnt occur the way we have imagined we are devastated. This devastation is caused by our perfectionism. Expectations that no one or any event can live up to only come true in fairy tales. I am trying to figure out why we do this to ourselves. It is one thing to have hope,but it is an entirely different thing to e xaggerate or project an outcome on peoples reactions when we cannot read their minds and we dont have a magic wand. This type of perfectionism is all about control. We want to be the director of the play we have staged in our head. We want everything to go just as we have planned. Then when it doesnt go just the way we imagined,we lash out at the people who didnt play their parts well. If for some reason you dont say what is on your mind, then you take to your bed and complete the process of closing out the real world more than you already have. When you are putting a project together,planning an Great expectations can lead to greater disappointments FLY Lady Leanne Ely See VICTIM,page 6B

C M Y K LIVING 10B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, February 27, 2013 This week I am back at home and glad to be back at work in the Heartland Division of Florida Hospitals. I did enjoy seeing all the historical buildings in Lake City while working up there last week. Lake City incorporated in 1859 and Marion Street seemed to have the most history on it. Yesterday we celebrated Black History Month by offering a menu in our caf called ATaste of Culinary Heritage,which are recipes from the late Chef Edna Lewis,who was a chef at Caf Nicholson in New York City during the 1950s. She lived to 89 and is celebrated as a leader in early AfricanAmerican female chefs. The recipes we served were her chicken and dumplings,peas and cream, sweet potato casserole and blackberry cobbler. This week I also found out that I was selected to go The Culinary Master Works at the Culinary Institute of American,San Antonio. The Culinary Master Works is a chefs retreat week for some continuing education and a chance to work with the future leadership of culinary arts. Morrison Healthcare and Morrison Senior Dining has 450 executive chefs and each year 75 are nominated,then the vice presidents of Culinary and the corporate chefs pick 24 chefs to go to the event. I am honored to have been selected. Its strawberry season around here and I do enjoy seeing the flats of strawberries coming in with a Plant City address on the label. Here is a cool strawberry recipe that I hope you enjoy.
