The council,its executive director John Scherlacher said,ant to recommend taking administration a nd operating costs off the top,thas basically the same in all government offices. The balance of the funding,he added,they want to use by percentages 65 percent for marketing and promotion; 25 percent in local event grants; and 10 percent for lake maintenance and protection. Scherlacher said the plan is limited t o three years,so if it doesnt work well it can be changed at that time. If it does work well,the policy may be s et for a longer time. Council members had another concern,Scherlacher said. They want to apportion resources so they last all year long. This means,he added,that the council might impose black-outs. Scherlacher gave a hypothetical example. If an organization wanted help to promote an event unrelated to the 12 Hours of Sebring,but schedu led in Race Week,the group would be denied. Part of the reason is to avoid over-booking of hotel rooms. A nother reason is to put TDC funding to better use than advertising an event bound to be overlooked in the excitement and rush of Race Week. Scherlacher warned that there were still major steps before the council can change anything. The written recommendation goes first to County Attorney Ross Macbeth,for his OK on the legal a spects of the document. Once it passes his inspection,the recommendation goes to the county commission f or final action. Scherlacher said the issue would be addressed some time in April. TDC recommends changing its distribution percentages B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING The first step is easy m ath. Take a wall 312 feet long and 10 feet high. Mulitiply one number by the other to determine the walls surface 3,120 square feet. The second step,changing the s quare feet into square inches,is just a tad bit more difficult. There are 144 square inches in every square foot. Multiply the total number of square feet by 144 square inches and discover the walls surface equals 449,280 square inches. There is only one reason this math lesson is in any way news worthy. The wall is not abstract,but real,and covered with tiles each tile,one inch square. For almost two months now,skilled craftsmen,some from overseas,have been laying those tiles,in the process creating a work of art. The project is under the direction of world renowned artist and Sebring resident James R. Hahn. This is not the first mural Hahn created in Sebring. He designed and painted the Sebring Centennial Mural on Ridgewood Drive,near his new gallery. The race themed mosaic is on Haywood Taylor Boulevard,diagonally opposite the raceways Hairpin Turn. The main work is complete; the outcome unique. s a homage to the 12 Hours of Sebring,Hahn said. Wild,bizarro and big. Two checkered flags frame the cenJames R. Hahns mosaic tribute to Sebring racing is worth a drive By BRENDAN FARRINGTON Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott,who was elected to office with the slogan s get to work,proclaimed several times Its workingduring his State of the State address Monday. Scott touted Floridas improved unemployment numbers and 200,000 nongovernment jobs that have been created since he took office in 2011 and urged lawmakers to continue to make the state more businessfriendly by eliminating the sales tax on manufacturing equipment. Jobs and education were the main points in Scotts third State of the State speech,one that comes as he prepares to seek re-election. I believe Florida will be the number one place in the world for job creation,the number one place in the world to get a great education,and the number one place in the world where families can afford to live, Scott said in the prepared version of the speech. The speech comes as the Legislature begins its annual 60-day session. Scott spent much of the speech talking about his mother,Esther,who died in November,saying that the values he learned from her are a guide to his approach to governing. My mom,the wife of a WWII veteran,had a simple formula for raising kids. We had to go to church a lot; do well in school and get a job. She taught us that,in America,hard work plus sacrifice means you could make your dreams come true, Scott said. The longer I live, the more I am convinced that my mom was right not just for our family,but for every family. Scott highlights jobs, schools in State of State See PUSH,page 5A B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Marcia Davis,coordinator for stu-d ent services with The School Board of Highlands County,is looking for help. She says homeless children are at risk in this weather ast oo many have no warm clothing. In,fact,she said, t oo many children dont have clothes at all. The economy is terrible, and children grow so quickly, there is a real need. A boy came to school without a jacket the other day. Childrens hould be warm when they come to school. The school district won a three-year federal grant meant to help homeless chil-d ren,only it has conditions that limit what the school board can do,Davis said. For example,none of the federal money may be used to buy clothes,with one exception school uniforms. Which is why Davis is looking for donations of childrens clothing in all sizes. New clothes would be nice, she said,but clean,used clothing,without holes or worn out,is welcome. Adult clothing also is necessary for middle and high school teenagers. Highlands County has its share of the homeless,Davis said. By the end of the 20112012 school year there were approximately 400 homeless children attending public See PUZZLE,page 5A Courtesy photo Fans at the Sebring Internatonal Raceway will have another vision of the races when they attend the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida.

PB:Power Ball Lottery Center Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands County SheriffsO ffice has investigated more than 10 cases where residents received packages c ontaining Verizon Wireless Droid RAZR Motorola p hones that they did not purchase. According to Public Information Officer Nell Hayes,in each of these cases a male subject wouldc ome to the door of the residence asking for the package telling the victim that the package had been delivered to the address by mistake. Ultimately the victims receive a bill from Verizonf or the phones. During the investigation o f these cases,detectives learned that a package containing Verizon Droid RAZR was scheduled for an address in Sebring. On Feb.2 8 detectives went to the area of the scheduled delivery and observed a white vehicle matching the description of the vehiclei nvolved in previous cases. W hen UPS arrived, detectivess aw two subjects approach the U PS driver. It was later l earned they told the driver they had the authority to sign for the package,signed for it and the package was turned over to them. H ayes said the suspects then got into the white vehicle and began to leave the area. Based on these actions matching the activity in the previous cases,detectives conducted a traffic stop ont he vehicle and recovered the package. It was found to c ontain fiveVerizon Droid RAZR phones,just as in the previous cases. On this information, detectives arrested RaulA lberto Jr.,32,of Miami and,Alexis Jesus Gonzalez, 23,of Hialeah,on charges of grand theft,fraudulently obtaining property by falsep ersonation,scheming to d efraud and fraudulent use of per-s onal identification information.

C M Y K B y BOB JOHNSON Associated PressMONTGOMERY,Ala. President Barack Obamasa dministration and the gun control debate after the C onnecticut school shooting have led to surging numbers of anti-government patri-o groups,according to a civil rights group that tracks e xtremist groups. The Southern Poverty Law Center reported the risi ng numbers on Tuesday in its annual report on extremist groups. The number of anti-government patriot groups,onec ategory tracked by the center,rose dramatically over the past four years,from 149 groups in 2008 to 1,360 today,researchers reported.T hat was up about 7 percent from the 1,274 active in 2 011. The election and re-elect ion of the nations first black president and the rugged economy have fueled their growth,said Mark Potok,a senior fellowa t the SPLC. The anger,angst,frustration,fear surrounding the economy have very much poured fuel on this fire,P otok said. On gun control,the debate following the Newtown,Conn.,mass murder of schoolchildren has led to a kind of white-hot rage unleashed on both the radical right and also within more mainstream political circles,he said. I n the week following the Dec. 14 school shooting,the F ederal Bureau of Investigation said it conducted more backgroundc hecks for firearms sales and permits to carry than it h as in any other one-week period since 1998. Some critics believe the S PLC is too broad in labeling hate and extremist groups,to the point of including legitimate political organizations thato ppose illegal immigration, gun control,gay rights and other issues. The centers researchers say they use a variety ofm ethods to track anti-government groups and compile t heir list from field reports, patriot publications,lawe nforcement sources and news reports. Potok said only active groups are included. e are not just looking a t one man and a computer, he said. The report states: Generally,Patriot groups define themselves aso pposed to the New World Order,engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing, or advocate or adhere to extreme anti-government doctrines. The FBI defines military extremists as anti-govern-m ent groups often organized into paramilitary g roups that follow a military-style rank hierarchy and typically engage inw ilderness,survival,or other paramilitary training, a ccording to a September 2011 FBI report on domestic terrorism. A long with the rise of extremist groups,Potok said there have been several home-grown terrorist plots against government build-i ngs and leaders in recent months. He compared the climate to time leading up to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. T he report cites several cases,including one cent ered on a Georgia Army base involving a groupk nown as F.E.A.R. (Forever Enduring Always Ready). Federal prosecutors maintain that F.E.A.R. was led by active-duty soldiers at Ft.S tewart who also plotted bomb attacks in Savannah and aimed to poison apple crops in Washington state.

Operation Dry Spring takes place through April 7 in conjunc-t ion with the spring break schedules of most public and private schools in Florida. This time of year,students from across the state take at imeout from their studies to enjoy their first break of the semester. Spring break is alsot he time when some of these students,the majority of them under 21,choose tod rink alcohol and experiment with illegal drugs. T he use of drugs and alcohol by youth lead to poor decision making,and in turnt o emergency medical situations such as overdoses and a lcohol-related injuries. In 2010,nearly 190,000 individuals under the age of 21 visited an emergency room for injuries or conditions connected to the use of alcohol.T he use of synthetic drugs such as bath salts and spice is on the rise with more than 7,000 reported incidents in 2011,compared to just over3 ,000 in 2010. Underage use of alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs has always been a point of concern for families as well asF loridas Sheriffs,said Polk County Sheriff and Task Force Chair Grady Judd. IfF loridas youth cannot make the right decisions,they will be spending spring break att heir sheriffs office. Here in Highlands County, o fficials have remained steadfast working to keep local kidsalcohol and drugf ree. Through a continued commitment to the DARE p rogram within the schools, to the constant alcohol compliance checks with local vendors,the active enforcement of underage drinking and drug possession,workingw ith Drug Free Highlands on prevention initiatives,looking out for weekend parties; the belief in the future for the youth is clear.

NEWS-SUN-6155 By TAMARA LUSH Associated PressTAMPA Appearing in p ublic for the first time since she was acquitted of murder, C asey Anthony revealed that she doesnt have a job or a car,lives with friends and relies on unsolicited gift cards and cash to get by. I guess you could say Im living free off the kindness of others,Anthony said at a bankruptcy hearing in Tampa. Anthony,26,was acquitted of murder in July 2011 in thed eath of her daughter, Caylee. She was released f rom jail several days later and disappeared from the spotlight. At the time,she had been vilified online and elsewhere,and her attorneyss aid threats had been made against her. On Monday,dressed in a white short-sleeve top,a black skirt and black heels,s he emerged from a sport utility vehicle and several dozen photographers and reporters swarmed her. When she left the courthouse,about 10 U.S. Homeland Security officers stood on the steps with guns. During the 50-minute long hearing,she consulted with her team of attorneys frequently.When she spoke,it was in a calm,matter-of-fact voice,and she mostly answered yes siror no sirto the trustees questions. Anthony said all of the unsolicitedmoney,gift cards and donations were sent to her attorneys,who then pass them along to her. She added that her criminal attorney,Jose Baez,has g iven her about $3,400 in cash to help with my living expenses. S he refused to disclose who pays for her cell phone, w ith one of her attorneys saying that it was due to safety and security concerns. Anthony filed for bankruptcy in January,claiminga bout $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities. Only one creditor showed up at the hearing:R. Scott Shuker,who is a lawyer for Zenaida FernandezGonzalez. F ernandez-Gonzalez said her reputation was damaged b y Anthony telling detectives that a baby sitter by the same name kidnapped Caylee. The detectives were investigating the 2008 disappearance ofC aylee,who was found dead several months later. Anthons attorney said details offered by Anthony did not match Fernandez-G onzalez and clearly showed Anthony wasnt talking about her. Shuker grilled Anthony repeatedly on whether she has been approached to tell her story for a movie,book or TV deal. Anthony insisted that she has not spoken to any agent or media organization. Shuker said afterward that he questioned whether she was telling the truth. From the smell test,it didnt smell right,he said. Any time you see an attorney in whats supposed to be a no asset case being that active,more to the point,you had five attorneys there, allegedly none of them being paid,thats odd. Shuker said that his client s uffers damages to this day because of her alleged link to the case. A nthons listed debts include $500,000 for attorney f ees and costs for Baez,her criminal defense lawyer during the trial; $145,660 for the Orange County Sheriffs office for investigative feesa nd costs; $68,540 for the Internal Revenue Service for taxes,interest and penalties; and $61,505 for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for court costs. Anthony had not been seen i n public since she left an Orange County jail on July 1 6,2011,12 days after she was acquitted of murdering Caylee but convicted of lying to investigators and sentenced to four years in jail.W ith credit for the nearly three years she spent in jail since August 2008 and good behavior,she had to serve only several days when shew as sentenced July 7. During Mondays hearing, she said that in 2008 she transferred her interest in about a dozen photos to her criminal attorney,and that he sold those photos to ABC for $200,000. The money helped pay for her defense,she said. Anthony added that she as asked to participate in photos and licensed those photos to Baez. She didnt say what those photos were of,or where they eventually ended up other than that she posedfor them. She said she thinks Baez eventually sold,or planned to sell, those photos. Follow Tamara Lush on Twitter at http://twitter.com/tamaralush Casey Anthony speaks at bankruptcy hearing By DAVE KOLPACK Associated PressFARGO,N.D. A woman who dated O.J. Simpson for more than a decade after he was acquitted of murder has received a four-year suspended sentence in North Dakota for allegedly trying to snatch someones purse. Christie Prody entered an Alford plea to the felony robbery charge in a Fargo courtroom Monday,meaning she didnt admit guilt but acknowledged there likely was enough evidence to convict her. She also was sentenced to two years of supervised probation. Prosecutors say Prody,37,tried stealing a womans purse in November at a mall in Fargo,which neighbors Moorhead,Minn., her last known address. Prody,who is currently jailed in Fargo,is accused in a separate case in Moorhead of stealing an elderly couples painkillers. Brian Melton,Clay County attorney,said the case was put on hold when Prody missed a November court date because she was behind bars. I would expect now that shes done with her North Dakota matters that shell get back over here and appear on these matters, Melton said Tuesday. Prody is accused of twice stealing the couples prescription pills while working for them as an in-home nursing assistant. Shes charged with two counts of burglary,two counts of theft and two counts of drug possession. She faces up to 10 years in prison on each of the burglary counts and up to 5 years on each of the other four charges. The couple originally reported that between 270 and 300 Oxycodone tablets were discovered missing. OJs ex-girlfriend sentenced in ND robbery case

C M Y K Spy drones. Mind-altering drugs. Texting-crazed motorists. A closer read suggests s tate lawmakers are poised to head off evolving surveillance concerns and try and tame a deadly chameleon synthetic drugs. Meanwhile,some proposa ls such as text-ban bills like zombies,keep comi ng back seeking lawmakers with the brains to endorse the safety-minded measures. H ere are some issues lawmakers must tackle when t his year's legislative session kicks off next month to protect Floridians' safety and wallets: Drones:Senate Bill 92, sponsored by Sen. Joe Negron,a Stuart Republican, would limit drone use to ter-r orism-related scenarios,or situations in which a judge grants a search warrant. Lawmakers should pass the proposal as prudent medicine to prevent an outbreak ofi ntrusive surveillance. Synthetic drugs:In J anuary 2011,state Attorney General Pam Bondi issued an emergency order outlaw-i ng so-called bath salts,synthetic cocaine and marijuana p roducts. Still,Floridians are abusing the drugs with deadly results at least nine deaths in the state are linked to the products with innocuous names such as spice or K-2. Lawmakers should mass age a bill sponsored by Sen. Rob Bradley,an Orange Park Republican. It rightly would slap individuals caught selling or producing faux cokea nd pot with a first degree felony. But the bill's jail sentences of up to a year for those in possession of the drugs runs counter to the better "Smart Justice"a pproach. Texting:Every year since 2 002,lawmakers have kicked the tires on text-ban bills. And every year d espite voluminous evidence of texting's dangers they n ever close the deal. ... Corrections reform: Florida recently has flirted with so-called "Smart Justice" reforms,which save taxpayer dollars by trading prison for community-based treatment and rehabilitationf or nonviolent offenders. Last year,lawmakers wisely floated a trial balloon:a community-based drug treatment program foro ffenders,which Gov. Rick Scott's veto imprudently popped.

Who authorized the TDC raises?Editor: I received the wage history of the TDC employees and the yearly revenue of the TDC. Mr. (John reported to have started on April 3,2008. Dana Knight was already working,so I used her data from April 2008. From 2008 to current date she received a total of 3 percent in raises. From 2008 to current date he received a total of 8 percent in raises. Just another case where upper staff gets more raises than the employees. He started in April 3,2008 at $26.92 and on Sept. 10, 2008 received a raise of 3% to $27.73. Then on Nov. 1, 2008 he received another raise of 5% to $29,12. For some reason he was reduced back to $27.73 on Jan. 2,2009. Then on Dec. 30,2010 he went back up to $29.12. From 2008 the yearly revenue went from $341,330 to $325,427 to $306,286 to $289,442,a declining total of 15.2 percent then back up last year to $305,526 for a 5.6 percent increase for a net loss of 9.6 percent. The percentage was an incentive to do a great job of increasing the revenue to be able to get an increase in salary. Instead they gave him increases that took him above the 29 percent mandated salary. One question is still unanswered,who authorized the raises? Respond or contact me at claggwe@comcast.net W illiam E. Clagg L ake Placid County Administrator June Fishers response Ms. Knight got a 3 percent Cost of Living increase on 10-10-08 along with a ll county employees at the time including Mr. Scherlacher. When Mr. Scherlacher was hired on April 2008 as a condition of employment he was given a 5 percent pay increase upon successful completion of his probationary period. This increase was processed on 11-10-08, however it was not made effective in the payroll system until 12-30-10 after the error was discovered. A check with retroactive payment for the difference in compensation from 11-10-08 to 2010 was issued and the system was updated to reflect the correct rate of pay. Horse Creek needs protectionEditor: Is it too much to ask of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to actually take responsibility for enforcement of the Clean Water Act here in Florida? The United States Environmental Protection Agency announced in November that it will enforce the Clean Water Act and do what the state of Florida hasnt set specific, enforceable numbers to limit pollution. The United States EPAs standards are like easy-to-read speed limit signs. But instead,the Florida Department of Environmental Protection wants to substitute bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo that a llows water to become unsafe before requiring pollution control. So once again,Florida taxpayers will be back on the book to clean up polluted streams and lakes in Florida. The Mosaic Desoto Mine project is just the latest disaster that may soon occur in Florida. One of the most affected tributaries of the Desoto Mine is the largest tributary of the Peace River, Horse Creek. Horse Creek is a stream that contributes to the potable drinking water resource in Charlotte and Desoto counties. The Southwest Florida Water Management District describes it as being amous for its scenic beauty and the purity of its water. Wildlife is plentiful and the banks are lined with moss-draped live oaks.It deserves better protection than allowing the permitting of three proposed phosphate strip mines. Huge,industrialized projects like three phosphate mines obliviously will negatively impact and change the water in the Horse Creek,the Peace River and the Charlotte Harbor Estuary by increasing salinity,dissolved oxygen and total nitrogen/phosporous. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, crowded with former mining employees and influenced by mining political action committees,instead of enforcing mandatory minimum clean water standards is offering suggestionsand a rubber stamped-approval to the mining company. We urge our Governor and Lawmakers to NOT allow the Florida DEP to circumvent the U.S. Clean WaterA ct standards. A few friends of Horse Creek, Robert Navin,Tonya Bond,Sara Hollenhorst,Dot Camaranavin and Pat Sullivan BouquetAdelines put on a wonderful showEditor: My friend and I attended a recent performance of the Heart of Highlands Sweet Adelines Show Chorus in Avon Park. We have attended their shows in the past and knew we were in for an enjoyable afternoon. From the very beginning we noticed there was something new,an extra spark,and a fresh new way of moving and expression. There was humor and a story line as they tried to figure out where their friend, who had not shown up for practice,could be. That quest took us all over the country in song,and finally, at the end the mystery was revealed. The chorus is under a new director,Betty Meinholz, who is a delight to watch. Their costumes are gorgeous and all in all it was an afternoon to remember. Congratulations to everyone on a job well done. We will look forward to their next performance. Harriet Porter Lake PlacidYMCA Christian Concert full of talentEditor: This years YMCA second annual Christian concert was a night full of fantastic talent from all around Highlands County.

C M Y K By GLENN ADAMS Associated PressCARRABASSETT VALLEY,Maine A 17-yearold skier who wandered away from the Sugarloaf ski resort survived two nights in the wild by building a snow cave for shelter,drinking water from a stream and walking toward the sound of snowmobiles during the day,officials said Tuesday. A snowmobiler who was not part of an official search party found Nicholas Joy,of Medford,Mass.,at about 9 a.m. Tuesday on a trail west of Sugarloaf Mountain,the Maine Warden Service said. Joy was taken to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington for evaluation, said Lt. Kevin Adam,the search coordinator. The weather conditions were bad enough that the search had to be suspended Sunday and Monday nights, and Joy survived by building a mound of snow that he fashioned into a shelter that he could crawl into,Adam said. Joy was in remarkably good shapefor spending two nights out,and it helped that the winds werent as strong in the valley where he was found as they were up on the mountain,Adam said. But he did the right thing in building a snow cave,and obviously hes still alive to talk about it,so he made some good decisions,Adam said. Joy and his father split up on Sunday after taking a chairlift to the top of the mountain and took separate trails down in what was going to be the last run of the day,officials said. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, March 6, 2013Page 5A DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; cornerstone hospice; 00027962 CENTRAL FLORIDA CASKET STORE &; 1.736"; 6"; Black; obit page; 00027942 Smorgasbord,1000 Sebring Square (across from Walmart on U.S. 27).

Call (941 Continued from page 2A COMMUNITYBRIEFS He evoked his mother again while explaining whyh e is supporting an expansion of Medicaid under President Barack Obamas health care overhaul after spending years fighting the plan. As I wrestled with this decision,I thought about my mom and her struggles to get my little brother the care he needed with very little money,Scott said. I concluded that for the three years the federal government is committed to paying 100 percent of the cost of new people in Medicaid,I cannot,in good conscience,deny the uninsured access to care. Scott also pushed for his proposed $2,500 across the board pay raise for teachers, and answered critics who say i s hypocritical to suggest the raise for all teachers two years after signing a bill to create a merit pay system for teachers. Some say they are afraid that giving raises to all teachers may mean that a teacher doing a bad job gets rewarded. But,thanks to our work,w e are now in a better position than ever before to reward good teachers and move bad teachers out of the classroom,Scott said. We dont want a war on teachers, we want a war on failure. Scott also answered skeptics who say Floridas job growth is part of the recovery of the U.S. economy and the governor shouldnt get the credit. e came into office saying we wanted to create an e nvironment that would encourage businesses to add 700,000 jobs over 7 years, Scott said. The debate was about whether or not thisg oal was even possible. Now, there is a debate about how to count all the jobs being created,and who should get credit for it. Maybe it isb ecause I am not a politician, but I think this is a great debate to have. He ended the speech with the phrase he repeated seven times earlier. I look forward to joining with all of you as we put Florida families first,and send a message to the world that Florida is serious about job creation,Scott said. Its working. Push continues for teacher raise Continued from page 1A ter,which is divided into two 80-foot wide panels one showing the race dur-i ng the day; the other at night. T he logo of Trend Stone,the company that envisioned a mural andc ommissioned Hahn to create it,divides the two raci ng panels. Trend Stone is an Italian-based company m aking and selling granite composite,glass and mosaic countertops all over the world. According to the compans website,itsp roducts are made in Italy, India and right here in Sebring. E-Stone,Trend Stones local factory,is right nextt o the wall. They gave me free artist ic license,Hahn said, adding the project was oneo f his most challenging. He even traveled to Italy to see the glass mosaic tiles made. Hahn came up with the overall design,which wentt hrough computerized pixilation and tessellation (creating a pattern or picture with tiles laid out with no gaps or spaces). It was like a big jigsaw puzzle,a huge collaborat ion,Hahn said. Huge, huge,huge. A minimum of5 0 people worked on this before we were done. He grinned while saying the work was completed ina fraction of the time e xpected,and will be ready in time for the 12 Hours of Sebring. Part of the reason Hahn creates outdoor art is tow ake people up,he said. So many are blind to what t hey have. I like to give them fresh eyes. H e hopes his art work gets people to sit up and notice. He hopes they say things like,Oh my gosh, where did that come from? B y KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO Defendants in the hazing death of a Florida A&M drum majorh ave been given the stiffer charge of manslaughter by the new prosecutor and a longer wait until their case goes to trial. R ecently sworn-in State Attorney JeffAshton added the second-degree felony count Monday for each of 10 band members who werec harged last May with thirddegree felony hazing in the 2011 death of 26-year-oldR obert Champion. Prosecutors also charged two new defendants withm anslaughter Monday, though they had not yet been a rrested. The manslaughter charge announced during a status hearing carries a penal-t y of up to 15 years in prison. The move could put press ure on the 12 defendants to seek plea bargains before the case makes it to a courtroom.A June trial date had previously been considered,butw ith more than 100 witnesses listed,Judge Marc Lubet said M onday that wasnt feasible. A status hearing for the case has been set for August. D avid S. Weinstein,a former federal prosecutor now i n private practice in Miami, said it would be easier to prove felony hazing charges t han manslaughter. Weinstein also said it was not unusual for prosecutors to go ahead with a lesser charge while still gatheringe vidence and upgrade later. The easy way out is you charge them with felony hazing. Thats what they decided to do initially.Youre still h olding someone accountable,he said. Now you have somebody new who comes in,takes a look at the evidence,and for a combina-t ion of reasons decides the manslaughter charge is warranted. Champion collapsed and died in Orlando in November2 011 after what prosecutors say was a savage beating during a hazing ritual. It happened on a bus parked in a hotel parking lot after FAMUp layed Bethune-Cookman in their annual rivalry football game. A uthorities said Champion had bruises on his chest, arms,shoulder and back andd ied of internal bleeding. Witnesses told emergency d ispatchers the drum major was vomiting before he was found unresponsive aboardt he bus. Christopher Chestnut,an a ttorney for Champions parents,said Pam and Robert Champion Sr. were pleased with Ashtons decision to upgrade the charges. These charges are commensurate with the acts comm itted,Chestnut said. It sends the right message regarding zero-tolerance ofh azing in the FAMU band. Prosecutors had originally f iled felony hazing charges that only required they prove the defendants took part in h azing that resulted in death. It didnt require them to prove who struck the fatal blows. A spokesman for Ashtons o ffice said the prosecutor would not comment. Ashton, a 30-year veteran who was on the team that failed to convict Casey Anthony of murder in 2 011,was sworn in as the areas top prosecutor in January after beating his former boss in a hotly contested election. Former StateA ttorney Lawson Lamar was criticized for charging the defendants with felony hazing and not more serious counts. T wo former band members whose cases were resolved last year werent among those charged. Brian Jones and Ryan Dean have alreadyb een sentenced after pleading no-contest to third-degree felony hazing last year. J ones was sentenced last October to six months of community control,whichs trictly limits his freedom with measures including freq uent check-ins with probation officials. He also was given two years of probationa nd required to perform 200 hours of community service. D ean was sentenced the following month and received four years of probation and 200 hours of community service. S ince Champions death, FAMU has made sweeping c hanges to fight hazing. The band remains suspended and there still has not been a timea nnounced for its return. The university is also still searchi ng to find a new director for the band. FAMUs board held an e mergency meeting last month to discuss the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the Champion family,though there were no final decisionsm ade. Interim FAMU President Larry Robinson said the board was authorized to continue trying for a resolution with the family. Manslaughter counts, trial delay for FAMU case schools. Davis emphasized,however,homeless does not necessarily mean the children are sleeping in cars,or under a bridge. The term includes families and individuals doubled up in homes. The point,Davis said,is that children living in uncertain,anxiety producing settings shouldnt have to worry about having clothes that fit too. Clothing (or cash tions are accepted at the school boards administration center on School Street in Sebring. Davis is in the Ken Grady Building,the second brick building to the left of the main entrance. For more information on how to help,call Davis at 471-8546.

C M Y K By TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondentSEBRING After a 5-4 l oss to Lake Placid earlier in the season, the Sebring Blue Streaks were able to flip the tables on theD ragons at Firemens Field on Monday night to come o ut on top this time, once again with a 5-4 result. We won in the eighth inning, said head coach B uck Rapp. Im really proud of how the boys worked, especially the pitchers. Starting on the mound for Sebring was Matthew Portis, for his first varsity start. Lake Placids first two batters, Rick Miller and Rufino Gutierrez, were both able to get on base from walks. The next three batters got outs, however, to end the inning for the Dragons. In the bottom of the first Sebring made the first score of the night. Agrounder in the hole at short by Wyatt Johnson got him on base, and Dane Maddox had a slam out to left field that brought Johnson home, giving Sebring a 1-0 lead at the end of the first. In the second inning, Green Dragon Tyler Carr hita grounder out to left field and got on base. Jacob Cram soon got on base, but Carr was caught stealing to make the first out of the inning. Isaiha Valazquez hit a double out to center field, followed by another hit to left field by Justin LaRosa that brought Cram into home, tying the score 1-1. In the bottom of the second, Garrett DeRoss led off and was thrown out at first on a dropped third strike. Two more hits to third were caught, ending the inning. Lake Placid came on strong in the third, once again brining a runner home. Josh Montero got on base from a walk, where Cody Lambert stepped in a designated runner. Aslam out to right field by Layne Daum put him on second and brought Lambert home. The Dragons nearly scored again when Carr hit one out to shortDaum SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, March 6, 2013 N ASCAR This Week3B By DANHOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt was a night of honors in the City of Champions Saturday night as the Avon Park Champions Club welcomed five new inductees into their Hall of Fame. Last years inaugural class honored with enshrinement consisted of Lucy Derkman, Joe Franza, Reginald Guy Garrett, Thomas Gordon, Ronnie Jackson and Bill Jarrett. Joining them, as part of the 2013 class at Saturday evenings ceremony, were Chet Brojek, Fred Jahna, V irgil Baker, Hoppy Rewis and J.C. Walker. Brojek, the grandfather of r unning in Highlands County, got his start as the Avon Park Track and Field teams head coach in 1970. One year later, he began the Red Devil Cross Country program, which would win the state championship in just itssecond season. B y 1980, Brojek moved up t o become the Avon Park Athletic Director, where he u shered in a half dozen ne w sports for the Red Devils, including a girls cross country program, volleyball, swimming, girls basketball, softball and golf, before his retirement in 2003. Frederick Fred Jahna was the official timekeeper for Avon Park football beginning in 1953, and would continue in that position for m ore than 40 years. During his tenure, Jahna provided a visible clock and Avon Park Diamond Club honors five into Hall Special to the News-SunSEBRING Pickleball teams from Del Webb at Haines City, Lake Ashton of Lake Wales and Riverbend in LaBelle came to Tanglewood on Monday, March 4, to play in the South Central Florida Pickleball League Shootout against local teams from Highlands Ridge and Tanglewood. The day started out on the chilly side with fairly strong winds that affected play greatly pickleball is played with a hollow, plastic whiffle ball. Teams switched ends at the seven-point mark in games played to fifteen points. This was certainly needed with the wind playing such a key role in shot making. Each community brought four teams of two that played in the A(strongest B, C and D competitions. Awin by the Ateam earned 10 points, a B team victory garnered 7 points, the C team could earn 5 points while the D teams added 3 points to the team total with a win. In the first round of play, Highlands Ridge defeated Lake Ashton while Riverbend came out on top of Del Webb. Tanglewood was then victorious over Highlands Ridge and Riverbend defeated Lake Ashton. Highlands Ridge knocked Del Webb out of the double elimination tournament and Lake Ashton was eliminated from further play by Riverbend. Riverbend finished in third place when they were defeated by Tanglewood. Highlands Ridge and Tanglewood met to determine a champion. Highlands Ridge won the first round leaving both local teams with one loss on the day. They played again with Highlands Ridge taking top honours. The Ateam champs were Gary Schinderle and Doug Ebeling of Highlands Ridge.

News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Taylor Test races home for a Lake Placid score Monday, but the Clewiston Tigers would outlast the Lady Dragons in nine innings. By ALEX COYNE News-Sun correspondentL AKE PLACID The Lady Dragons were looking to stretch their District winning streak, but fell shorta gainst the Clewiston Tigers Monday night in extra i nnings. The Dragons started out s trong but found themselves on the lower end of an 11-9 l oss. This was a game of capitalizing on errors; both teams made them, it was just a matter of who could translate errors into runs. The Lady Dragons defense started out strong in the first inning as starting pitcher Holly Krett threw two strikeouts split by a pop fly, getting all three outs for the Dragons. The Dragonsoffense then mounted a two-out rally in the bottom of the frame. After two strikeouts, Breauna Corley got things started with a base hit. Annie Weber-Callahan hit a stand-up triple to bring Corley home, and Courtney Delaney turned a base hit into an RBI for herself as well. The Lady Dragons went into the second inning confidently, up 2-0. Krett would once again throw two strikeouts. With a Clewiston Tiger advancing to first on a walk, a grounded ball to Taylor Test at shortstop would close the top of the second inning. Test bunted down the third base line and beat out the throw for a base hit. Raveen Gobourne would capitalize on the Tigersfirst error, by turning an overt hrow at first into a triple, bringing in Test for theD ragonsthird run. Laine Weber-Callahan p opped one into center earning a double. Two pitches later, Laine s tole third, and was brought h ome by Carly Hoppers base hit. T he Dragons would ha ve their biggest lead of the night going into the third inning 50. Hopes of keeping the Lady T igers scoreless were shortlived in the third, however, when they would tie up the b all game 5-5. Three runs were scored o n wild pitches; two were RBIs from their teammates. The Tigers used th i s momentum to keep Lake Placid scoreless for the first t ime all night. Into the fourth, with no outs and Tiger runners on first and second, a line drive j ust within fair territory down the third-base line would give Clewiston their first lead of the night, 7-5. But three quick outs would keep Lake Placid in striking distance. Laine Weber-Callahan started off the Dragons in the bottom of the fourth with a stand-up triple, and soon came plateward on a wild pitch. Hopper then reached a base hit, and was immediately brought in by Corley, who was tagged out at second base. Lady Dragons let one get away See LP, Page 4B Courtesy photo Chet Brojek, Hoppy Rewis and Virgil Martin were among the 2013 class inducted into the Avon Park Diamond Club Hall of Fame Saturday night.

Virgil Martin and J.C. Walker were both key parts of the Red Devil baseball dynasty of the late 1940s. Martin was an outfielder and pitcher from 1945-49 and played in five consecutive state tournaments with teams that went a combined 86-7. H e was the winning pitcher in the 1946 state semifinal game over Jacksonville and went 4-for-7, with three runs scored, during the title-game, double-header sweep of Tampa. Martin was also on the 1948 state championship team that went a remarkable 22-0 and had a scoring margin of an astonishing 185-17. His talents didnt just lend themselves on the baseball diamond either, as Martin was a four-year letterman in football and played three years on the Red Devil basketball team. Walker was the ultimate dual threat on those Avon Park baseball teams, serving as the ace of the pitching staff and top hitter from 1945-48. His best season average was .493, but never saw his average in any season below .450. In a double header against Tampa for the American Legion State Title, Walker p itched both games and lead the offense, going 6-for-6. In 1948, he was the workhorse of the pitching staff,w inning 14 of the teams22 games, gave up just 23 hits in 93 innings while striking out 181. Rance Hoppy Rewis made his mark both as a player and a coach for Avon Park, a s he played on the baseball state championship team in 1966 as well as on the state runner up in football that same year. After three years coaching basketball and football at Avon Park Middle School, Rewis was named the Red Devil head football coach in 1979 and won back-to-back state championships in 8788. Spreading his coaching talent around, Rewis later started and coached the Avon Park softball program andt hen moved on to Sebring where his baseball teams reached the Regional Finals four times. F or all his accomplishements over his long and heralded career, Rewis was inducted into the Florida A thletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2009. The City of Champions h a s a history filled with state titles and remarkable careers and achievements. And the Avon Park Diamond Club reached back into that history Saturday night and honored just a few that made some of those achievements possible. Continued from 1B Hall sees five in second class In the B division, Doug O Loughlin and David Majick took top honours. The C flight was a draw while Tanglewoods Debbie Yandell and Diane Reynolds were the D victors. Competitors from each community commented on t he enjoyment of visiting one anothers communities and i mproving their skills with the high level of competition. M ike Holden of Lake Ashton, is pleased to announce that his community will be building its first pickleball courts in 2013. There are 75 players in that pickleball club who have been sharing the communitys ten-n is courts up until now. Mickey Dorman of the Riverbend RVResort, recalls how pickleball started there t hree years ago on a rough parking lot they have now built four courts with lights. Back home in western Pennsylvania, Mickey is an ambassador of the game trying to spread the word about pickleball. His home community of Newcastle doesnt yet have facilities so he travels 50 miles across the state line into Cortland, Ohio to play. Bob Hofmann from Del Webb is delighted with the four lighted courts theyve h ad for two years but reports thatt he game is growing so rapidly that pickleballers are petitioniong the Home Owners Association to line the tennisc ourts for pickleball. Members of the T anglewood team were pleased to be able to host this y ears championship and thrilled to play in front of l arge crowds. David Majick from Highlands Ridge started the South Central Florida Pickleball League and coordinated the shootout. He is to be commended for his efforts to bring pickleballers together. Continued from 1B League shootout draws a crowd It was tied at seven, but the Lady Dragons were fighting to get their lead back. Annie Weber-Callahan a nd Courtney Delaney both earned singles, and Shannon Huber was walked, leaving the bases loaded with twoo uts. Apop fly was in the air, and the Lady Dragons r unners were on the move. When the Tigerssecond b aseman dropped the pop, two runs were brought in, w ith the Lady Dragons leading once again, 9-7. In the Clewiston half of the fifth, hit batter, base hit and a walk would leave the bases loaded with no outs. Two quick outs, made by third baseman Kaeli Sperlock, were followed bya ground ball to center field bringing in two runs. Sperlock would close the inning with her third straight out. Three quick outs would leave the ball game tied at nine going into the sixth inning. Six quick outs in the sixth inning still left the game tied. Three up, three down for the Dragons defense at the top of the seventh left a victory in reach for the Lake Placid batters, but were left scoreless when a pop fly was caught with the bases loaded forcing extra innings. Once again, the Lake Placid defense earned three quick outs in the 8th inning, and another chance at victory was left short when a pop fly was caught by the Clewiston pitcher forcing yet another extra inning. Two base hits to start the Tigers in the ninth were followed by two strikeouts. The fifth Clewiston batter was walked, leaving the bases loaded with two outs. Two overthrown pitches led to two runs, and Clewiston would go up 11-9 going into the bottom of the ninth inning. Three straight outs left Lake Placid on the lower end of the 11-9 loss, with 13 of the 20 runs scoring on errors between both teams. e made a few mental errors and that, in the end, cost us the game, Taylor Test said. But the positives are that we arent that team that gives up in the fifth inning anymore. We went nine innings and played our hearts out until the last out. We might have lost but Im still proud of my team. The Dragons were back at it Tuesday, hosting Avon Park and finish out the week Friday with a home date against DeSoto.

In the bottom of the third t he Streaks threatened again. Jordan Austin singled to left, and then stole second. Johnson drew a walk, and a hit by Cullen Lovett was caught by the first basemen but allowed Austin and Johnson to advance. H owever the Streaks were u nable to bring Austin home as Johnson was picked off at second for the third out of the inning. The top of the fourth went by quickly for Lake Placid, as their first two batters hit line drives to third that were c aught and another hit out to r ight field that was received by the fielder. Sebring had a big inning in the bottom of the fourth. Maddox hit a single in the hole at second. DeRoss and Ty Little were hit by a pitch and drewa walk, respectively, to load the bases for the Streaks. After an out, Alex Forde hit a slam to right that put him on third and brought the others home. Austins at bat allowed Ford to come home too, giving Sebring a 4-2 lead. In the following three innings Lake Placid tied up the score while Sebring helds teady, forcing the game i nto additional play. In the top of the eighth Sebring held off the Dragons. Little led off for the Streaks in the eighth with a single to right, followed by Cale Payne who attempted to bunt Little in, but Little was thrown out at second and Payne made it to first. After a strike, Alex Forde beat out an infield single to get on base when Johnson reached on an error, the winning run was 90 feet away. Lovett stepped to the plate with a chance to be the hero, and though his at bat would provide for the winning run, it wasnt quite so dramatic as Payne scampered home when the second pitch got away. There were a few minimal errors, but all in all Imh appy, Rapp said. We still h ave mistakes we need to overcome, but well keep working. Sebring gets back to it Friday at Hardee, while Lake Placid travels to Frostproof on Friday as well. Continued from 1B Sebring pays Dragons back

But you very seldom see one that has climbed up into a tree showing itsbeautifulf lowers through the tree branches. This is what caught the eye as members of the Avon Park Founders Garden Club drove through neigh-b orhoods looking for a candidate for the Yard of the Month Award. The yard at 603 Cherokee Circle has two such displays. The bougainvillea werep lanted by Ana Lopez to produce that effect. But that isnt t he only attractive thing about the yard. Encircling a large oak tree a re azaleas,crotons,plumbago and schefflera. At the base o f another oak tree is a large split leaf philodendron. One surprising aspect of the yard is a verandah between the plants and the house with at iled floor,a swing and two Adirondack chairs a perfect p lace to sit and relax while being hidden from view from the street. On this verandah isa pot of poinsettias,a Christmas cactus and a vase f illed with hostas. An ornate birdbath holds a container with caladiums and a begonia that was brought from Puerto R ico. Other plants in the yard include podocarpus,Turksc ap,snow on the mountains, a camellia tree,rose bushes and asparagus fern. T he Yard of the Month Award was presented to Lopez by the Avon ParkF ounders Garden Club for her contribution to the beautification of her neighborh ood. Nominations for the Yard of the Month can be made byc alling 452-1927.

Club members attended a recognition honoring Officer Tommy Saul and the unique Therapy Through Plants program. Many state officials praised Saul for his dedicated endeavors. The object of this program is to change lives and prepare inmates to succeed in public life. Florida Federation of Garden Clubs is proud to be sole sponsor. The attendees were served lunch and given a tour of the well-kept grounds and greenhouses. Seibold introduced the Florida Water and Land Conservation amendment, which the F.F.G.C. supports. It is not a new tax. It simply allocates a portion of the existing documentary stamp tax that is collected when real estate is sold. It will take many signatures to pass. These funds will be used to protect lands,rivers,lakes, streams,wetlands,wildlife habitat and drinking water. The program was erraniums.These old ideas are reappearing. There are two types of containers one is shallow and open and uses drier plant material. Seibold chose a pretty jardinire:Line the bottom with small stones for drainage. Add a layer of charcoal gravel to keep it sweet. Cover this with sphagnum moss to hold the soil. Cover moss with about two inches of moist soil,not wet.

C M Y K Y ou know how I feel about making dinner an event in your home. Im afirm believer in getting everyone around the tablet ogether for dinnerto reconnect with each other, discuss the days events and to nourishour bodies with good home-cookedf ood. A few weeks ago I talked about the importance of learning how to set aproper table. Today, Im going to talk abouts omething else that makessitting down to a m eal an enjoyable experience. Today were talkingtable manners. M y children were taught how to behave at the table f rom the time theywere in their booster seats,so they naturally grew up knowing what todo and what not to do at the table. T his might not seem like a significant life skill to s ome people,butI believe that it is. Think about it. How q uickly can someone be turned off by a p ersonchewing loudly with their mouth open in a formal dinner setting?I tdrives me up the wall when someone reaches over my plate to g rabsomething at the table,rather than asking f or me to pass it to them. If you have children around your table,you have lots of time to trainthem in dinner tablee tiquette. Teach table manners to pre-schoolers. Its never too early to start teaching the basic stuff,like washingyourh ands before going to the table and sitting down on y our chair toeat. Those things can start being drilled into a child as young as 2.Between then and kindergarten age,herea re some other basic tablemanners you can start to teach: Say please and thank you No toys at the table Ask to be excused from the table Set your napkin in your lap and to use it when wiping your face Thank the person who cooked the meal Use utensils to eat Take small bites No running around or yelling during dinner For children at the higher end of this age bracket, they can be taughtto say nice things about the foods they like and to not make a fussabout the foods they dont like. Teach table manners to grade-school children. A child at this age s hould automatically wash their hands beforesitting down at the table and theys hould already be sitting nicely atthe table,and sayi ng please and thank you. But now its time to teachsome more adult table manners: Dont slurp Use a knife and fork to cut food Chew with mouth closed Dont reach over a fell ow diners plate Wait until everyone is s erved before starting to eat Include children in disc ussion around the table and make sure yourchild knows that youre intereste d in hearing about their day. W hen they have these manners down as children, its really just amatter of refining them through young adulthood. C omment on their good manners when you find there using them.

She was responding to a poem that had appeared in your column,Legacy of an Adopted Child. She was going through a very trying time and was being bullied because she was adopted and looked very different from her parents. My daughter is grown now and is a delightful,successful young woman. That poem helped her greatly. Can you reprint it for others? Proud Mom in Greenville, S.C. Dear Proud Mom:With pleasure. The poem is part of my Keepersbooklet. Legacy of an Adopted Child (Author Unknown) Once there were two women Who never knew each other. One you do not remember, The other you call mother. Two different lives Shaped to make yours one. One became your guiding star, The other became your sun. The first gave you life And the second taught you to live it. The first gave you a need for love And the second was there to give it. One gave you a nationality, The other gave you a name. One gave you a seed of talent, The other gave you an aim. One gave you emotions, The other calmed your fears. One saw your first sweet smile, The other dried your tears. One gave you up It was all that she could do. The other prayed for a child And God led her straight to you. And now you ask me Through your tears, The age-old question Through the years: Heredity or environment Which are you the product of? Neither,my darling neither, Just two different kinds of love. This poem is part of a collection of poems and essays that readers have repeatedly asked to be re-run because they hold special meaning for them.

Dear Abby By DAVID BAUDER AP Television WriterNEW YORK Buzz-worthy reality shows are often a ticket to riches for cable networks,even when the shows seem to have little to do with the networks reason for being. So why shouldnt CNBC get in on the action? The business network will try starting on Tuesday,when CNBC premieres Treasure Detectivesand The Car Chasersin prime time. Some 7 to 10 nonfiction series are being developed for the evening hours when the Wall Street ticker goes quiet. reasure Detectivesfeatures British art appraiser Curtis Dowling,who uses careful scientific methods to determine whether a piece of valuable art is real or forged. The Car Chasersfollows a Texas company that buys cars with intriguing histories, fixes them up and makes money on resales. The two series represent CNBCs latest attempt to attract an audience after the business day. CNBC looks upon Nickelodeon as a model for building a separate,nostalgia-oriented Nick at Nite lineup for when children to go bed. CNBC primarily seeks the business audience during the day,but its business programming ends at 8 p.m. ET. The evening hours have often been a puzzle for CNBC executives,who notoriously saw a short-lived talk show hosted by John McEnroe in 2004 get a rating from the Nielsen company a handful of times,indicating there were fewer than 100,000 viewers. CNBC hired Jim Ackerman,an executive behind Love & Hip-Hopon VH1,to build a stable of reality shows that CNBC will be able to own outright offering the potential for a handsome profit if some break out and become hits. And who,other than CNBC,can better understand profit? Both new shows will have the whiff of familiarity. reasure Detectivesisnt far removed from shows like American Pickers, Antiques Roadshoor History Detectives.The Car Chasersintroduces viewers to an unusual business with colorful employees,another reality show staple. Both Curtis Dowling,the overly self-assured Brit who digs into art world secrets, and JeffAllen,the bald,goateed owner of the Flat 12 auto shop in Lubbock,Texas,have the look of ready-made reality stars. While television is often built on copycats,Ackerman said that isnt the case here. CNBC tries reality TV after business hours

I played nine holes of cold and super windy golf on Saturday and I sure was glad when I got back into my truck and turned the heat on. This weather makes me want to make hearty foods and what better than a big pot of chili? This Thursday I have been asked to be a judge for a chili cook off in Lake Placid and I sure looking forward to that. I have entered a few of these events,but never have been on a judging panel. I won a chili cook off in Michigan in 2005 with a roasted poblano and chicken chili recipe that I will enclose here today. Chili is a great dish because you can make it so many different ways. I have had it with bison,lamb and venison just to name a few. The next time you find yourself trimming down your proteins before cooking them,save your trimmings and add them to a pot of chili.
