He was takeni nto custody Monday by B roward deputy sheriffs and is being held without bond at the Broward County jail c harged with vehicular homicide and driving without a valid license. Fox will be extradited here to face the charges. T he crash occurred Wednesday,March 28,2012 near the Alan Jay Automotive Network at about 6:30 p.m. Fox and five passengers were headed south on U.S. 27 in a GMC Envoy that was observed speeding and weaving through traffic on the highway. Roaf was driving north in her Ford Focus. Fox is reported to have lost control of the Envoy and run onto the median at high speed. The SUV hit a raised concrete drain,which lifted the vehicles front end. Its forward momentum caused the car to launch into the air to the northbound lane where it landed directly on top of Roafs car,killing her instantly. Fox was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital,where he was originally listed in serious condition,but recovered. For much of the year since the accident,he moved from one address to another in Broward County,said sources who,because they fear Fox,asked not to be identified. It is not yet known how Fox was located. Driver charged in 2012 death Fox By JAMIE WILLIAMS News-Sun correspondentSEBRING The Sebring International Speedway Hall of Fame and Gallery of Legends connects the past years of racing with the present. This year is no different as several cars that have raced the 12 Hours of Sebring were brought into the gallery on Wednesday. Significant of these cars is a red No. 99 1963 Corvette Stingray driven by Phil Currin and a light blue and yellow No. 73 JLP-2 Porsche 935 driven by John Paul Jr. Last year,Currin drove his Stingray Corvette on the parade lap before the race. He was asked to bring it back this year because it is the 40th anniversary of when he first drove the car in the 12 Hours of Sebring. In that race he finished 11th overall out of 72 cars and second out of 18 corvettes,even though he was driving a car that was 10 years old. The year prior,he won the 1972 IMSA GTO Championship and earned the nickname as the Giant Killer. Currin restored his vehicle in 1993 and continued to race it sparingly in vintage races until he retired the car in 2003. One of those races included an overall win in the one-hour endurance race at the SVRA (Sportscar Vintage Racing Association) vintage event at Sebring. Currin stated that the memories of the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1973 came back to him while he was doing the three parade laps a couple of weeks ago.

See EVENT,page A3 T his is the third and final part in a series about the a reas firehouse chefs.By SAMANTHA GHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comS EBRING One thing most fire houses have in common,no matter the l ocation,is a need to feed the hungry firefighters. T hroughout the many fire stations,there seems to have always been designated a "firehouse chef". The firehouse chef is thef avorite at the fire station for many reasons; they provide not only meals but allow a setting for brotherhood and camaraderie. Throughout Highlands County,there are a numbero f firehouse chefs. One of the county's busiest firef ighter/EMT's is Bill Miller. Miller is best known for his work as the fire rescue manager at Sebring InternationalR aceway; he also serves as operations manager at Positive Medical Transport. Miller is employed as a full-time firefighter in FortM yers but has worked in Highlands County for the past six years. He is no stranger to cooking. When in any of his many firehouses,Miller spends a great deal of time preparing meals for his comrades. I love cooking,Miller said. I like cooking on sight the most. I cook everyday. Miller has been dubbed the head cookin both the Fort Myers fire station and at Positive MedicalT ransport home base. He has perfected his love affair of cooking over the past decade and has created some signature recipes that his gang goes crazy over. e eat all kinds of things. Barbecue,chili, burgers and dogs,everything,Miller said. When asked about his favorite dish to prepare, Miller made it no secret that his fellow service men and women enjoy his smoked brisket and chili the most; and the community agrees with them. F or the past two years, Millers one-of-a-kind, delicious chili has won Peoples Choice at the Sebring Rotary Crazy Chili Pepper Cook-Off. He served up his scrumptious chili to loads of guests in December at the event. Miller (representing Positive Medical Transport) was awarded the Overall Winner. Millers cooking skills have grown a lot over the years. Taking lessons from his stepfather,Miller learned the basics ande xpanded on it with many years of practice. I started off cooking Spaghetti Os,Miller said with a chuckle. Since the canned pasta days are long behind him, the chef whips up more challenging items for the entire firehouse. On a normal day at a station,Miller feeds up to 14 people.

C M Y K By SAMANTHA GHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comSEBRING City counc il members John Griffin and Scott Stanley have both earned themselves another term on the council following a close,and small,election race. Of the 5,501 registered voters residing in the Sebring city limits,a mere 278 cast ballots for Tuesdays election. e had a very low turn out, which is unfortunate. Other than that,it was a great election. There were no problems,said Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg of her first official election. Stanley led the election with 195 votes (38.76 percent),Griffin received 156 votes (31.01 percentand first-time runner Lenard Carlisle trailed just behind Griffin with 152 votes (30.21 percent that the unofficial results will stand; a re-count is only conducted in the event there are two votes separating candidates in a race. Griffin spoke to the News-Sun Thursday afternoon in good spirits following his re-election Tuesday night. The re-election marked G riffins sixth consecutive city council term,the first taking place in 1999. I was very disappointed with the turnout ... I blame it on lack of coverage, Griffin said. He went on to say,however,that the turnout is because the city of Sebring is in sound shape. I think people are pretty happy with the way things are run. They dont have the problems or turmoil here that other cities have,so they dont feel a huge need to go to the polls,Griffin said. The long-time Sebring resident stated that he will continue to keep a conservative eyeon everything in the city. Any issues that need to be resolved, Griffin has no problem voicing his opinion and experienced mind on what can and should be done. The current council president has strong feelings regarding two of the citys big issue the prospective Harder Hall sale,privitazing solid waste. Griffin will continue to do what he has doneo ver the years and congratulates Lenard Carlisle on a well run race.

Now is the time to look at the sky; PanSTARRS is already veering away. Dennis Randolph and Chris Stephan of t he Highlands Stargazers Astronomy Club have gotten permission from the Highlands County Sheriffs Office to set up a viewing site on the shore of Lake Olivia,about 2,000 feet north of the recy-c ling containers. Stephan said telescopes will be available for viewers,and those with tele-s copes,or binoculars,are encouraged to bring them along. Children are as welcome as adults. T he event runs from 8-11 p.m.,but the best time to see the comet is between 8:15 and 9 p.m. Its way lower than I thought, Stephan said. I searched for a half hour, but didnt find it,because it is so low on the horizon. When a friend sent Stephan a photog raph he had taken of the comet,having used the fingernail clip of a moon as a guide,Stephan was able to find it too. He added that in addition to watching forPan-STARRS,the telescopes will bet rained on Jupiter,the moon and other galaxies. The event is free. There is no number to call for information,just gather at Lake Olivia. The astronomy club asks those who come to be respectful of the neighborhood and thep eople who live there.

C M Y K I f you take a drive through the Deep South, you are virtually guaranteed to see numerous University of Alabamaf lags flying from houses and cars. Yet few Crimson Tide flags hold the significance of the one Sgt. JasonC artwright carries in the right cargo pocket of his U.S. Army uniform in Afghanistan. For the soldier,who arrived in the warz one over the summer with his trusted military working dog,the Alabama flag is a reminder of a close friend, U.S. Army Spc. Dusty Parrish. If you knew Doc,no matter what kind of day,he w ould (put face,Sgt. Cartwright,28, wrote to The UnknownS oldiers from Afghanistan. Doc and I were roomm ates,both from Alabama, and both big Alabama fans. While serving in Iraq with the Armys 5thE ngineer Battalion,based out of Missouris Fort L eonard Wood,Cartwright and his fellow soldiers held Parrish in the highestr egard. e were in the same v ehicle,Cartwright wrote. I was his gunner and he was our medic. O n June 4,2009,Spc. Parrish,23,was killed in Balad,Iraq,when his vehic le was struck by an armorpiercing grenade. The loss o f Parrish,who left behind a wife and son,devastated the soldier's hometown of Jasper,Ala.,as well as Cartwright and his entireu nit. e were real close friends to Doc,Cartwright wrote. Nearing the end of his third combat deployment and the second hunting forr oadside bombs with his dog,Cartwright carries not o nly the Alabama flag that once flew in the room he shared with Parrish,but also his fallen comrades courageous spirit. (Through deployments and being here in Afghanistan now,I still want to serve this great country,Cartwright wrote. E ver since I connected with this soldier in June 2011,I have been astonished by how much he loves his country,his family and Isaac,the fearless dog that has helped save countless lives. Even after many months away from his wife and son and several near-death experiences with Isaac,Cartwright recently made the brave, selfless decision to reenlist. So now I am dedicating six more years,he wrote. When it was time for his re-enlistment ceremony in Afghanistan,Cartwright asked a friend and brother in arms,Army Lt. Jeremy Carroll,to administer the oath. e would have never thought in Iraq in 2008 d oing route clearance patrols together that one d ay in Afghanistan, (Carrollould be reenlisting me,Cartwright wrote. While spending time t ogether before and after the ceremony,the deployed soldiers shared laughs about the good ole days serving together in Iraq. They also discussed the pain of losing their goodf riend in combat. Lieutenant Carroll, I saac and I know today that Doc is watching over us here in this land as we continue (our Cartwright wrote. I n December,the senior Army dog handler,who is still serving with the 5th Engineer Battalion, explained what a given dayi s like for himself and Isaac,the friendly black Lab who helped locate 28 roadside bombs during their last combat tour. Isaac and I search for over 18 hours 800 meters of routes and compounds to only get everybody back on that chopper to leave once the mission is complete, Cartwright wrote five months into his current deployment. That is exactly what we have done together,out front taking point with all the troops behind us. Cartwright and Isaac have helped locate roadside bombs buried near schools, hospitals and routes traveled by U.S. and Afghan troops. Many people are alive because this soldier and his dog are willing to repeatedly risk everything. Yet Cartwright always praises his fellow soldiersw ithout assigning himself credit for his own gallant, u nselfish actions. Standing on top of a makeshift stone platformd uring his re-enlistment ceremony in Afghanistan, S gt. Jason Cartwright raised his right hand with two of his best war budd ies,Lt. Carroll and Isaac, by his side. Flying proudly from the platform was the University of Alabama Crimson Tide flag that hon-o rs his fallen friend.

He won the 12 hours of Daytona twice and 12 Hours of Sebring once as just a small part of his racing accomplishments.

C M Y K C alling Champions death nothing short of an American tragedy,thenOrange-Osceola State Attorney Lawson Lamar indicted 11 defendants forf elony hazing. The charge carries a five-year maximum p rison sentence. Hazing, Lamar said,is a tradition that we cannot bear inA merica. Yet,the relatively light p unishment Lamar pursued for the deadly pummeling belied that assertion. Out with the old,in with the new state attorney. OnM arch 4,Lamars successor, Jeff Ashton,not only c harged two more ex-band members,Henry Nesbitt,26, and Darryl Cearnel,25,int he case,but also slapped 10 defendants who previously f aced felony hazing indictments with manslaughter. M anslaughter is a seconddegree felony that carries a maximum 15-year-prison sentence. Ashtons decision understandably drew praise from Champions family.T hrough their lawyer they noted the previous charges a lone amounted to a slap on the wrist and basically an endorsement to continue thep ractice. We agree that a charge t hat carries five years for a crime so heinous is far too lenient. Its unclear whether Ashtons office perhaps has bolstered its case with newe vidence,or is trying to impel a plea deal. W hatever the prompt, Ashton made a gutsy call in pursuing manslaughterc harges in a thorny case in which some 100 witnesses c ould take the stand. Not only does it send a stronger message that society has no s tomach for hazing; it also promises punishment more in accord with the brutal beating that led to Champions death. H is bandmates kicked, pummeled and suffocated Champion,26,in a teambuilding ritual on a charter bus parked at the RosenP laza hotel in Orlando. The famous Marching 100 had retired to the hotel after itsh alftime performance at the annual Florida Classic football game between FAMUa nd Bethune-Cookman University at the Florida C itrus Bowl in Orlando.

That means but one thing:time for Americans to over-celebrate the Irish tradition. I speak of the goofy Leprechaun hats,the gaudy green buttons and scarvesa nd the propensity to drink excessive amounts of alcohol at fake Irish pubs whilet rying to be authentically Irish. T hough Im not entirely without guilt. Eight years ago in a gent rified section of Washington,D.C.,I visited a fake Irish pub a few weeks before St. Patricks Day. My group included my cousin,my friends Bergen,Bell and Reid,anda woman wed just met who bore a striking resemb lance to Paula Jones (of the Clinton-era scandals). Our efforts at pretending t o be authentically Irish were going well until B ergen ordered up a fresh round of Guinness. That's when the disaster occurred. Paula Joneswas wearing a white sweater her favorite white sweater, which shed paid $80 for at bebes in Chicago. Bergen,i n his eagerness to get at his Guinness,knocked a full pint of the oil-black brew onto what quickly become a chocolate-whites weater from bebe's in Chicago. H aving five sisters,I knew we had to get thats weater soaking in something or it would never see whiteness again. Bell ran off to get a bucket. I got the manager to supply af ree Leprechaun T-shirt so our guest could change. My cousin trembled visibly,while Bergen was clearly saddened by thel oss of his full pint. Just as we managed to get our female guest dry, get her chocolate-white sweater soaking in soda water we set it on a table behind us and continue to pretend we were authentically Irish,all heck broke loose again. Drug dealers,who had been openly plying their trade across the street we watched them through the window were suddenly the target of police, whose cars came roaring down the street from every direction. So curious were we about this scene,we forgot about the sweater. Thus,we failed to notice that the busboy had picked up the bucket in which the sweater was soaking and proceeded to fill it with dirty glasses,silverware, greasy napkins,etc. Thankfully,my cousin saw him and began shouting. This headed off the busbos subsequent actions,which would have involved the swabbing of d irty tables with an $80 chocolate-white sweater from bebes in Chicago. T here was no time to savor our success,however, a s another crisis was under way. Our female guest was suddenly overcome by itch-i ness,an affliction,apparently,that results when G uinness dries on the skin. (Sunburn shed received during a recent vacation had also contributed to her malady.) S o loudly did she complain she had passed t hrough denialand was well on her way to anger that our efforts at pre-t ending we were authentically Irish were in jeopardy y et again. I quickly began searching the pub for mayonn aise,which,d thought, would remedy her itching. I didnt realize until afterward that my reasoning had been muddled by an abun-d ance of Guinness and my hopes of rubbing mayonnaise all over her skin had more to do with my needs than hers. I t was about then that the cook came running out of t he kitchen,shouting about shots being fired in thea lley. Our group had had enough. We rose in unison, grabbed our sweater bucket,hailed a cab and got the heck out of there. T he Irish celebrate St. Patricks Day in a more dignified manner than Americans do. Most people go to Mass,take in ap arade,then enjoy the rest of the day with family they dont get out of hand the way we do. It is true that one out of four Americans can trace his heritage back to the rolling green hills of Ireland,but do we have to mock our fine heritage by wearing gaudy hats and scarves,getting rip-roaring drunk and singing supposed Irish tunes,such as The Unicorn Song? The Unicorn Song illustrates my point perfectly. It was written by Shel Silverstein. He was Jewish. Tom Purcell.

Any revenue will not compensate for damageEditor: This letter is directed towards the county commissioners who are considering approving the use of Highlands County land for the Swamp Hammock Recreational Club. I want to ask if you have lost your senses,but that comment would be impolite. Why would you approve of the use of this land to be used in such a manner? I know that the thinking is that this will bring much needed business into the county. What it will bring is oversized vehicles in from other areas to tear up not only the land out there,but the roads that are used to get to the place,and I refuse to call it a hammock as it will not be a hammock after these vehicles use it for their mud bogging and the tearing of their four-wheelers through the sand and trees. The people that use this place will,for the most part, be individuals who will bring in their own food and cook it there; there will be little,if any,money spent here for food or other items. I understand that one person from Okeechobee said that a similar place there helped their economy in that it was the first time Publix had sold out of beer. I do not see a place where people drink and drive large,dangerous vehicles as being family friendly. The reality is the following:This will be a place that is not only dangerous for children,but a place that will attract our teens who will find places there to drink and to use drugs. The land will be wrecked and useless for any other purpose after it is used for these activities. Any animals living on the land will be killed or driven off of it. Our roads will be torn up with the type of vehicles and the increase in traffic. It will be a place of excess use of alcohol with intoxicated individuals driving in our community. Even if there is a small increase in revenue it will not compensate for the damage that will occur by this Recreational Club.I would point out that I am not a neighbor to this place,just a concerned citizen who is highly opposed to allowing this to happen in our community. Thank you for allowing me to express my concerns. Katherine Main SebringMotorists: Some kids still play outsideEditor: A couple of months ago the4-year-oldgirl next door accidently let her grandfathers dog out and went chasing after it to catch it. A truck speeding down the road hit the dog and barely missed the 4-year-old. The dog had to be put down due to its injuries,but the little girl will live with that memory for many years. The speed limit on our residential street is 25 mph but many do not observe that speed,instead it is used as a short cut and speedway of sorts. Today a Sebring police officer stopped a car and ticketed the driver. I wanted to hug that officer. Unlike many children today,my two boys and about 10 other children play outside rather then put their noses in video games. We have a lot of children around here that love to play outside like many of us did as children. Only difference is peo ple are in a hurry now to get from point A to point B and their attention is on cell phones andiPads instead of the road and the children who may be playing outside. I have made my own signs for outside telling people to slow down,some do and some dont. What I did not put on the sign were my thoughts. Those are:If you hit a stray dog or cat or even a family pet,I will feel sad, but if you hit one of the children in my neighborhood you will have one angry mom on your hands as well as legal problems and hopefully some regret for not thinking before you drive.

C M Y K The new name says it all,said Bennett. In only s ix months since we announced the merger, GRAND-AM and the ALMS have taken huge strides to become one organization thatw ill redefine sports car racing in North America. United SportsCar Racing reflects the fundamental spirit of how we are working together towarda common goal,Bennett said. The announcement culminated a four-month project. The logo,with its race helmet-like imagery,was developed to be an icon with a modern feel,representing a part of motorsports that is immediately recognizable. The effort involved New York-based SME Branding, one of the nations leading agencies with a client list that includes the NFL,NHL, UFC,the New York Yankees, Kentucky Derby,Madison Square Garden and NASCAR. To come up with the concept SME developers conducted extensive research from participants as well as fan input. They used the information to develop the seriesname, logo and brand identity. The selection of United SportsCar Racing was derived from a submission by Cocoa,Fla.s Louis Satterlee in GRAND-AMs Name The Futurefan contest. Atherton said the group began the branding process by listening to manufacturers,corporate partners,drivers,teams,tracks and the fans. He called the input "invaluable" in leading to the final decision When it came to the branding of our newly merged entities,we felt we had one chance to get it right and now we believe we h ave done just that,Atherton said OHara said the goal of the new name and logo was an effort to be modern,aspira-t ional,authentic,unique and obviously,exciting. e want fans and the sports car industry to feel like they ownthis new brand,h e said The panel also announced that the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA would be retained as the sanctioning body for United SportsCar Racing. They too revealed an updated version of the iconic IMSA logo. Co-founded in 1969 by John Bishop and the late Bill France Sr.,IMSA also will sanction the new organizations various support and ladder series,including the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge,Ferrari Challenge, the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama Series,the Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda Series,the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin and the newly announced Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo.

C M Y K Most fishermen would agree, falling or rising temperatures, heavy rain and hot, muggy days are all a nuisance when trying to geta days fishing in, but wind is one of the most difficult elements to deal with. Too much or too little; strong cold winds coming out of the North or East or even the warmer sea breezes from the West and South play havoc for the fishermen when they approach 12-15 mph. Three days on the water last week, Friday, Saturday and Sunday were just such days. Friday afternoon, the winds were stiff but I was able to find a few spots on Lake Glenada, in Avon Park, where the wind had little effect and as a result, I boated a couple of decent bass on square-billed crankbaits and a Carolina rig. Too much wind for flipping the reeds. By Saturday, the winds picked up by mid-morning and every spot I tried on Lake Istokpoga seemed to be a target of the Northeastern gale. Although I tend to cover an area pretty quickly, whether Im flipping or casting, too much wind at my back moves me through an area much to fast to fish it properly. Attempting to slow down and go against the wind will work for a short time but ultimately wears down your electric motor batteries. The action was pretty slow as I searched out known areas for a guide trip I had the next day. Bass didnt appear to be holding in the reeds or the pads, although I did catch a couple of yearlings along the eastern block of reeds across from the Big Island. Working the top of the water column, above some older hydrilla with a rattletrap, I scored a couple more small males, but the action was slow. With no set game plan for my trip on Sunday, I stopped by the Lorida General Bait and Tackle to get John Woods opinion. He agreed the fishing had slowed down a bit and suggested using wild golden shiners. I agreed and told him Id be stopping by in the morning to get a few dozen. Often, when nothing else Special to the News-SunS TUART Extreme Speed Motorsports has lived up to its name the last few weeks. F rom building two brand new P2-class race cars with a ll-new liveries, adding to t he driver lineup and all additional preparation needed before the American Le Mans Series (ALMS sented by Tequila Patrn season-opening event at Sebring International Raceway, the ESM pre-season has been nothing short of extreme. That preparation is about to pay off in this weekends Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida. Armed with two Tequila Patrn-sponsored Honda Performance Development (HPDracing machines, ESM has taken to the 3.74-mile, 17-turn track early in the week to maximize on-track time in the new race cars. Scott Sharp, Guy Cosmo and David Brabham will share the driving duties of the No. 01 Tequila Patrn HPD ARX-03b while Ed Brown, Johannes van Overbeek and Anthony Lazzaro will pilot the No. 02 Tequila Patrn HPD ARX03b. It is exciting coming to Sebring and running the two P2 Honda-powered cars, Sharp said. I remembered the minute I climbed back into one what an awesome piece of machinery this is. It does everything it is supposed to do brake, turn, put the throttle down and carry such great corner speed. But we have a ways to go in setting the cars up and optimizing them. Amere two hours from ESMs Stuart headquarters, Sebring International Raceway is one of the teams home tracks. On Friday, March 15, fans have the opportunity to meet the 2013 ESM driver lineup during the ALMS Driver Autograph Session beginning at 11:15 a.m. Following the autograph session ESM will be holdinga live auction in the ALMS paddock area benefiting the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer, with many exclusive team items up for bid. ESMs Guy Cosmo will serve as the auctioneer and he will be joined by other team drivers and crew members. The auction starts at 12:30 p.m. The 2013 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrn begins with the 61st Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida on March 11-16. Qualifying for P2 cars takes place at 2:20 p.m. on Friday.

Pierce this weekend competing in the FACA All-Star Girls Basketeball Classic. By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comLake Placid senior Alex Coyne received more good news this week, per her standout basketball abilities, when she was named to the South squad for this weekends FACAAll-Star Girls B asketball Classic in Fort Pierce. It was quite a season of achievement for the versatile point guard as, after accepting a Division I scholarship to Southern Miss, Coyne broke the 1,000-point barrier for her high school career and lead the Lady Dragons to the first Elite Eight appearance in their history. And on the heels of such achievements come the accolades. I was given a packet by (Sebring girls who is the head of District 16 and that was the nomination, Coyne said. He nomi-n ated me so I filled it out and mailed it in. The nomination forms from all over the state were t hen perused over by the Florida Athletic Coaches A ssociation and 21 heralded h oopsters were selected for the North-South battle, including Coyne. It feels great, she said. I always like accomplishing something that Ive never accomplished before. And while some might see the event as a showcase to perhaps enhance their profile for college recruiters, with scholarship already in hand, Coyne can relax and just play. This isnt going to be an exposure event for me so I w ill just enjoy my last high schoolgame and get a fun, competitive game before Im off to Southern Miss, she said. I dont recognize any names (of other players selected) on the list so its just another opportunity to make friends, play with kids Ive never played with before, and share this opportunity with a bunch of other girls that share the same love for the game as I do. Im really excited. Founded in 1936 by a group of head coaches, the Florida Athletic Coaches Association is comprised of more than 5,000 memberc oaches, both high school and college, in the state of Florida. The Florida Athletic C oaches Association sponsors 10 High School All-Star C lassics in nine sports, cond ucts four coaching clinics each year and recognizes coaches for their exemplary efforts supporting the youth of this state.

C M Y K seems to be working, golden shiners will make for a great day of bass fishing. Sunday morning I met up with my neighbor, Ken Garner and his buddy Scott Grady who was visiting from Wisconsin. Two hard-core muskie fishermen from up north, they were both anxious to try their hand at flipping for bass. I let them know that the fishing had slowed down a bit and that wed probably be facing some pretty stiff wind, so I suggested that we pick up some shiners just for insurance. They both agreed that theyd prefer flippinand casting with artificials, so we loaded up and headed for the lake. Ken is a recent addition to our neighborhood and plans to live in Florida part of the year and at his Wisconsin home through the summer months. An avid muskie fisherman, Ken met Scott years ago at a club meeting for other fishermen addicted to the fish of a thousand casts. Ken became a member of the club and together the pair has spent countless hours in pursuit of the muskellunge. Scott built the fishing club into one of the largest muskie organizations in the country while combining his passion f or fishing with becoming a master bamboo rod builder. Although neither had flipped for bass before, both were flipping their baits like professionals when Ken scored with the first bass of the day, a feisty pound-and-ahalf fish that Im sure looked even smaller to a guy who fishes for 4-5 foot monsters. In the meantime, I managed to hook up with a grass pike that shook off my hook boatside as I fought the strong winds to keep everyone in position. Afew more missed opportunities and we decided to move down the lake and try some different strategy. Casting spinnerbaits, rattletraps, frogs and bass assassins, Scott scored with his first bass of the day, followed by my first on a bass assassin. None of the bass were worth bragging about, but they were welcome after hours of fishing. Finally, Scott had a nice hit on his Horny Toad, and as he brought the fish in, I could see hed finally gotten a larger fish to strike. B ut just when I thought things were going our way, the fish broke the surface and tossed the bait. It was a nice fish, probably in the 4-5 pound range, but apparently it was camera shy, so we all agreed it was just a quick release. Still trying to get out of the wind, that by then was blowing at a brisk 14-16 mph, we motored back into the south side of the Big Island and found some refuge from wind and waves. I scored with a big mudfish, something that neither Ken or Scott had seen before and we continued working the area. By 4 p.m. we all agreed, it had been a long, tough day on the water and it was time to call it quits. Ken and Scott both agreed that flipping might be something theyll try when they get back up north for muskies. Ive caught a few muskies in Canada and Ohio and I was trying to imagine flipping for them and having one of those giants strike my bait with only 6-8 feet of line out. As a bass fisherman, I live for the thrill of a 10 pounder picking up my bait, imaginea fish of 25-40 pounds. T hats gotta be a real rush! Of course, they have to wait for the ice to melt!

Goldson spent the past two seasons on one-year contracts with the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers, including last year with the franchise tag for $6.2 million. Goldson made it clear he sought a long-term deal for his future security, and he got it across the country with the Bucs. The 28-year-old Goldson, a two-time Pro Bowler, had 69 tackles, three interceptions and a forced fumble for San Francisco last year in his sixth NFLseason. Tampa Bay is counting on the addition of Goldson to boost its defense and help a team that finished 79 last season with three more wins than the Bucs had in 2011. The Bucs were last in the NFLdefending the pass in 2012, and havent re-signed 16-year veteran defensive back Ronde Barber. One of coach Greg Schianos top offseason priorities was upgrading the teams pass defense. In the postseason, Goldson has 47 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble. Goldson was a fourthround draft pick by the 49ers in 2007 out of Washington. Goldson signs with Bucs

C M Y K Dear Pharmacist:What is licorice root? I heard you ata lecture talk about it and s ay something like it could take the place of lots of different drugs,and that it helped with chronic fatigue. W.W.Dallas,T exas Answer:Licorice root is an herbal remedy often used in Chinese traditional medicine. Its ancient,and was used by the Greeks andR omans for many health concerns such as ulcers, s ore throat,asthma,depression,menopause,arthritis, heartburn,gastrointestinalc oncerns of all sorts and various viral infections ( like hepatitis and the flu). Unfortunately,licorice candy (mmm,Twizzlers) doesnt have quite the same effect,but hey,thats not tos ay you couldnt indulge in that every now and then! J ust know that licorice root is a totally different animal, and unlike candy,it hasm any medicinal properties. Licorice contains healing f lavonoids,phytoestrogens, and glycyrrhizin. Some of these compounds block theb reakdown of a hormone called cortisol in your body which helps you deal with s tress. Many of us are walking around with severe a drenal fatigue,and depending on a few other medical factors,licorice root could be just what you need to help cope withs tress. It also happens to boost levels of natural interferon,which is an important component of your immune system helping you defend yourself from infection. L icorice root helps soothe irritated membranes w hile removing mucus from your respiratory tract, making it a great adjunctive remedy for cough and cold. The phytoestrogens alsom imic the effect of estrogen,which can help with menopausal symptoms,as well as cognitive function but be careful here becausea nything that is estrogenic (even mildly so) has the potential to drive certainc ancers,especially those of the reproductive tract. A 2011 study performed on rats in China provided evidence that glycyrrhizinc ould protect against some of the more drastic negative o utcomes from spinal cord injuries,by suppressing inflammatory chemicals (called cytokines) and blocking the release of ag ene that promotes further inflammation (HMGB1 a separate human study,it was also observed that licorice root reduces bodyf at in part by suppressing aldosterone,which is the h ormone that tells your body to hold on to salt and water. L icorice root is available in many oral dosage forms. Excessive intake of licorice r oot can exacerbate hypertension and other heart p roblems,by disrupting the salt and water balance that your body strictly maintains so ask your doctor if its right for you. It hap-p ens compliments of the glycyrrhizin. Some companies now make a deglycyrrhizinated form of licorice root,which is the form that is free ofg lycyrrhizin. Its called and while this form doesnt really improve adrenal fatigue concerns,it is great for long-term usea nd specifically helpful for digestive problems of all sorts including gastritis, reflux and heartburn. DGL is best taken in a chewable tablet form about 20 min-u tes before eating your meals. DGL is a supplem ent I usually recommend to people who find themselves compelled to takea cid blockers and antacids.

One morning, while walking to a class,I had the misfortune of walk-i ng a few feet ahead of a pair of boys who were havi ng an incredibly offensive and loud conversation about their sexual interests. It wase xtremely derogatory toward women,and just plain disg usting. In a situation like this, would it have been inappropriate for me to turn around and say something,or was itb etter to just hold my tongue and walk faster? I have disc ussed this with some of my sorority sisters and we are anxious to hear your answerb ecause Im not the only one who has encountered this. O ffended in Georgia Dear Offended:You were right not to challenge them.B ecause this isnt an isolated incident,what you have described could be conside red a form of sexual harassment. You and your sorority s isters should as a group bring this to the attention of the dean because you are a minority on that campus and the boys apparently haventl earned to function in an integrated environment. Dear Abby:Can a sexless marriage last? My wife and I have been married for 17 years and our sex life hasb een slowing for a long time. We have sex less than 1 0 times a year. We get along great and are the best of friends. My wife is attractive and fun to be with,and I dont knoww hat happened to us. What causes women to lose their sex drive?

Boys being boys on campus flirt with sexual harassment Dear Abby By CHRISTY LEMIRE A P Movie CriticT he only incredible thing about The Incredible Burt Wonderstoneis that way it makes Steve Carell so thoroughly and irreparablyu nlikable. In a film about magic tricks,this is the most difficult feat of all. Even when Carell is playing characters who are nerdy( The 40-Year-Old Virgin) or needy (Crazy,Stupid, Love) or clueless (TVs The Office) or just plain odd (Anchorman:The Legend of Ron Burgundy),t heres usually an inherent decency that shines through a nd makes him seem relatable,vulnerable,human. None of those qualities e xists within Burt Wonderstone,a selfish and f lashy Las Vegas magician who once ruled the Strip alongside his longtime friend and partner,Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi),b ut now finds his act has grown outdated and unpopul ar. Even within the confines of a comedy sketch,where he probably belongs,Burtw ould seem one-dimensional and underdeveloped with h is hacky jokes and tacky clothes. Stretched out to feature length,the shtickb ecomes nearly unbearable until of course,the movie doles out its obligatory c omeuppance,followed by redemption,and goes all soft a nd nice. By then its too little,too late. Burt Wonderstone comes to us from director Don Scardino,a televisionv eteran whos a two-time Emmy-winner for his work on Rock,and Horrible Bosseswriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. It has some scattered laughs,many of them cour-t esy of Jim Carrey as a gonzo,up-and-coming street p erformer with a taste for pain,clearly modeled after the Criss Angel style of stunt artistry. (The characters cable TV show is called Brain Rapist,if that gives you an idea.) And there is some spark to the scenes between Carell and his Little Miss Sunshineco-s tar Alan Arkin as the master magician who inspired Burt as a lonely child and now lives anonymously at the nursing home where Burt is relegated to doing card tricks. These small joys are few and far between in a comedy thats mostly reliant on repetitive sights gags and increasingly desperate oneupmanship. I n theory,were supposed to feel for Burt because we see him being bullied in af lashback at the films start. The nerdy,neglected child of a hard-working single m om,Burt turned to magic for self-esteem,and found f riendship with the likeminded and equally geeky Anton. Their mentor was the old-school Rance Holloway (Arkinwhose moves theyw atched repeatedly on VHS. Thirty years later,Burt and Anton are longtime headliners at Ballys,going through the same bit night after night with little inspiration. For totally unex-p lained reasons,they hate each other probably b ecause Burt has become a dismissive,abusive jerk. This is not Carells strong suit. Also part of the act is their latest assistant,Jane,a lthough Burt insists on calling her Nicole because her real name simply doesnt matter to him. The role is a huge waste of Olivia Wilde,w hos stuck playing the supportive girl,and isnt given much chance to show how funny,sexy or smart she truly is. Burt and Anton find not just their friendship but their careers in jeopardy as Carres daring Steve Gray steals away the fans and attention with more and more outlandish acts:ridiculous stuff like sleeping o vernight on hot coals and holding his urine for several days straight. With his longh air,shirtless,sinewy frame and charismatic demeanor, Carrey functions like a m anic,subversive Christ figure. Although hes too old to b e playing an upstart,he gives it his all,as always. Meanwhile,the suddenly ubiquitous James Gandolfini has an amusing line or two as Burt and Antons preeni ng casino boss. But its hard to care about h ow far the duo will fall or whether they can make a comeback which is neveri n question because theres nothing for us to hold o n to as an audience. If Carells character is onenote,Buscemi sadly gets even less to do besides play the sweet,beleaguered sec-o nd fiddle. And after its over,poof! Y oull forget you ever watched it in the first place.

C M Y K LIVING B12 SE CTION News-Sun Friday, March 15, 2013 BYRICHARDBURNETTThe Orlando Sentinelfter the worst year for the stock market in decades and a financial crisis that has rocked the nations b anks,who could blame investors for wondering whether there is any safe place to put their money n ow? Y et,experts insist,there still are secure places to protect your cash and be in a position to p rofit when the market recovers. E xactly what to do depends on how close you are to retirement,how strong your risk tol-e rance is and how badly you need your money now in a recession that already has wipedo ut millions of jobs. But before doing anything, people need to save. There is no substitute for the systematic,a utomatic,bite-the-bullet socking away of money especially for emergencies. Despite the industrys financ ial woes,banks still are the safest place to park savings,especially since the government bumped each banks FDIC deposit insurance from $100,000 to $250,000 per account holder. As far as investments go,cash is still a priority for senior investors and those nearing retirement,two groups of people who generally need to protect their principal. M any people already have fled to the safest havens theyc ould find,diverting billions of dollars to U.S. Treasury securities,savings deposits and other conservative cash investments.RATES ON CDS TOO LOWThe appeal of secure money has been undeniable during tough times,even for investors many years from retirement. But those investments are not necessarily safe,either even if you tie up your money for a long time to get the higher available rates of return. The problem is that average rates on a certificate of deposit recently fell to less than 3 perc ent for five years and 2.5 percent for one year,according to Bankrate. com. That means inflation can easily eat away the returns. Savings and T-bill rates have dipped even lower, to less than 1 percent. Some have found a viable option in Treasury InflationProtected Securities (TIPS a government-backed bond whose principal and subsequent interest payout adjusts upward based on the inflation rate,so that your money at least keeps up with the cost of living.SOME RISKS A RE REQUIREDThough thats good for your peace of mind,TIPS wont yield the healthy returns you may n eed to build a robust nest egg. That will require taking at least some risks. If your time frame is between five and 10 years before retirement,these are safe investments, said Greg McBride, senior financial analyst for Bankrate. com. But beyond that,you run the risk of investing too cons ervatively. I mean, f or longer than 10 years,keeping your m oney in cash doest compensate youf or the risk of inflation. It would be safein name only. In general,the massive flight to cash that took place last year went against the conventional wisdom that says investors should stay the course and think long term. A diversified portfolio of stocks,bonds and cash carries you through even the worst downturn,the financial advisers template says. T he 2008 historic crash shook that advice to its roots,as many blue-chip financial stocks tanked amid the meltdown. Diversity failed in 2008, said Cary Carbonaro,a financial planner with Family Financial Research in Clermont,Fla. Every asset class fell with one exception:government bonds. Most of us have never seen anything like this.DIVERSITY IS STILL T HE RULET hat doesnt mean,however, anyone has discarded the a pproach. Its just a matter of diversifying smarter and perhaps more conservatively in the current market. A diversified portfolio is still very much appropriate for a long-term investor who is still at least five years from retirement, said Paul Auslander,a financial planner and CEO of American Financial Advisors Inc. in Orlando,Fla. While this market didnt support the theory (of diversification),the concept still applies. That may still be a tough sale for investors burned in 2008.U ltimately,however,almost everyone who fled the market must answer a problematic ques-t ion:When do I get back in?TOTAL SAFETY DOESNT EXISTInvestors are understandably w ary,but there going to have to get used to taking risks again, while realizing there is no suret hing out there,said Philip van Doorn,a financial analyst with T heStreet.com Ratings,based in Palm Beach Gardens,Fla. Theres just no such thing as total safety these days,he said. Even if you buy gold, the value of gold could plummet. Putting money in the bank is fine,as long as the FDIC insurance is there to pay if the bank fails. People must realize theres just no absolute certainty in this current environment.A diversified portfolio is still very much appropriate for a long-term investor... Financial planner Paul Auslander f the financial meltdown-turned-recession hasnt made you start saving more money for a rainy day,you should have your head and your bank account examined. An emergency-cash account,which should be enough for three to six months of living expenses,is a keystone of getting your financial house in order. And it is even more urgent now with millions more jobs in jeopardy amid the down economy. People have to save more money.Thats the bottom line,said Philip van Doorn,an analyst for TheStreet.com Ratings. Do you really need fancy cable services,the latest Xbox game, Guitar Hero,dining out four nights a week? Question everything,cut back and put it in savings. If it doesnt hurt,youre not saving enough. But thats far easier said than done for many people in an era of rising housing costs,insurance premiums,health-care expenses and other living costs. How many people can really afford to sock away a lot of money?KEEP A CUSHIONNot Marcia Bexley,an independent marketing consultant in Orlando,Fla.,who works contract to contract and client to client. Emergency cash? Well,ve always tried to keep a cushion,and Im pretty careful with my money,she said. But I cant say I have anywhere near three to six monthsworth. I might have one month in reserve. Overall,the nations personal-savings rate has hit the skids this decade. People saved an average of 1.5 percent of their income not including retirement accounts in 2008,compared with more than 4 percent 10 years ago and 7 percent 20 years ago,according to the Department of Commerce. Still,a 2007 survey by Bankrate.com showed that 46 percent of consumers claimed to have as much as six months of emergency savings a figure that raised some eyebrows. I think those numbers are very high,said Greg McBride,senior financial analyst for Bankrate.com. Im skeptical that many people actually have that much socked away for emergencies. Some may have considered 401(k or home-equity lines as emergency money. But the market crash and housing meltdown wiped out a massive chunk of those resources. Besides,experts have never encouraged people to borrow from their retirement nest egg a risky gambit that often can backfire. It is even more risky with the huge losses most 401(k accounts took in the market crash. And home equity well,theres still not a lot of that available. Real-estate values continue to fall,many credit scores are suffering and banks are tightening their grip on the till.MAKE CASH HARD TOACCESSSo the onus falls back on individuals to take initiative. eep in mind,you should first be meeting your basic expenses before you begin contributing to an emergency fund,said Denise Kovach,a financial planner with Certified Financial Group in Maitland. But getting started can be as simple as depositing $100 in an interest-bearing account,then following up with $50 or more per month thereafter. Dont tie emergency money to easy access such as a debit card,she said. Its also a good idea to set up an automatic deposit from each paycheck. A good day to have the draft occur is the day after you get paid,said Andrew Orr,president of OrrGroup Financial in Orlando. So the draft to savings is first in line. If you make the effort to build a rainy-day fund,you might never end up in bankruptcy court. ont touch that 401(kvings; dont raid it and certainly dont starve it,the conventional wisdom tells us. Experts say the market always rebounds,better times return and losses are often recovered. Dont miss that recovery by messing with the central retirement savings vehicle for 50 million Americans over the past two decades. Now is not the time to take money out,bu t t o put more in if you can,said Greg McBride, senior financial analyst for Bankrate.com. Ive talked to people who were thinking of scaling back since the market isnt doing well. I ask them,Do you buy shoes on sale or wait till they are full price again?Unfortunately,thats how many people invest. After so many 401(k,how ever,its not surprising many question the conventional wisdom,especially baby boomers approaching retirement. In fact,the market collapse wiped out so much boomer 401(k money,it has prompted Congress to consider changes to the entire system. That still doesnt mean people should abandon it or divert all of their money into cash investment options,McBride said. was the year that broke all the rules,he said. But I dont think the response now is to go ultraconservative if youre,say,55 years old. Of course,your top priority should be to have at least three monthsworth of expense s in a savings or money-market account, experts say. If you dont,you might need to pare your 401(kution temporarily to build that cash buffer. Its understandable that 2008s historic losses can make investors lose sight of the advantages of a 401(ksuch as tax sav ings,diversification and dollar-cost averaging (i.e. long-term investing that maximizes your average return by acquiring bargains in a down market to get more bang for your buck). Over time,this results in a higher dollar weighted return,said Andrew Orr,a financial planner and president of OrrGroup Financial in Orlando,Fla. It may go against your natural bias of loss aversion,fear and anxiety,but it is exactly what you should do. Just look at what Warren Buffett has been doing for the past year. But while it may be fine for stock pickers and traders to try to time the market,it is an ill-advised gambit for long-term investors and their 401(kvings,said Charlie Fitzgerald, a financial planner and partner in Maitland, Fla.-based Moisand Fitzgerald Tamayo. When you start trying to time the market by moving money in and out of it,what youre doing is adding more risk to the portfolio,he said. It might feel good sitting in cash during a downturn,but you are inheren tly damaging long-term returns by doing that. Richard Burnett TRACK WHAT YOU SPEND:Tally your basic expenses versus discretionary wants. Identify areas to cut back and flag as potential savings.LOCK IT IN:Calculate at least three months of expenses and make that your emergency-fund goal. Determine what you can afford to save from each paycheck and set up an automatic bank draft to your emergency savings account.DO SOME HOMEWORK:Check out Internet-based money-tracking services such asmint.com,geezeo.com,Quicken OnlineandMvelopes.com. Some are free; others offer a 30-day free trial,then charge for a subscription.THE FINAL WORD:ay yourself first by a direct deposit. Increase that contribution with every raise,tax refund,windfall or debt that gets paid off. Most importantly,cut your expenses. Thats where the really tough decisions have to be made,says Greg McBride of Bankrate.com.SOURCES:BANKRATE.COM, ORRGROUP FINANCIAL, ORLANDO SENTINEL RESEARCH MCT
