For the past month,Cang Tong, formerly known as Cang Tong Chinese and Japanese,has been the go-to destination for diners looking to tantalize their tastebuds. The well-known establishment has relocated (only a few doors down) and re-vamped,creating a unique atmosphere for diners to enjoy. Cang Tong owner Jennie Le has had her hands full since the grand re-opening of her restaurant in February.The move and expansion took about seven months,according to Le. It wasnt that hard to move and expand,Le explained. The hardest part was the new staff. Everything is so new and they have to learn so much that has been a big challenge. With a full staff of bartenders, s ervers,chefs and greeters,Le finds it hard to remember how many she has on staff at times. Though the number isnt important, the service is,Le said. The Chinese,Japanese and Hibachi restaurant serves up everything from traditional Chinese dishes such as fried rice and wontons,to hand-made sushi and lobster tail. Theres a few favorites.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunV ENUS Native landscaping ... what is it and is it r ight for my yard? Get answers to these and other questions on Sunday when Dr. Eric Menges from Archbold Biological Stationl eads a walk around Archbolds new Learning Center and Lodge buildings with a focus on the native landscaping. Sign-in begins at 1:30 p.m. and the walk begins at 2 p.m. The public isi nvited. Menges is the Plant E cology Program director and has been at Archbold for 25 years. He will be accompanied by Plant Ecology research assistant StevenM cAllister. The inspiration for using native landscaping,or ridgescaping,as we have termed the landscaping atA rchbold (referring to the Lake Wales Ridge),comes from the principle of using the right plant in the right place,said Hilary Swain, executive director of Archbold. e decided during the planning phase of our new buildings to go nativewith our landscaping using only trees,shrubs,grasses, and flowers from south central Florida and planting them in the right spots based on their unique light,water, and soil needs. Native plants need only sun and rain. They can survive the extremes of soil and local climate,and meet our goal for no/low maintenance. Bringing their inspiration to life was the work of Nancy Bissett from The Natives in Davenport. Bissett designed the entire two acres surrounding the buildings using only plants native to this region. The Learning Center and Lodge landscaping project was recognized as Gold Certifiedin 2012 by the Florida-Friendly Landscaping Program of the University of Florida. Melissa Mabe,director of communications,said,This event is one of a series of guided walks at Archbold for spring 2013. Please remember to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for walking in sand trails around the buildings. Bring your camera,field notebooks,sketch pads, water bottle and protection from the sun. Sorry,no pets allowed. Archbold Biological Station is an independent, not-for-profit research facility located on the Lake Wales Ridge and lies within the Northern Everglades,the lands that drain south into Lake Okeechobee. The Station is dedicated to longterm ecological research, conservation,and education. Its all part of the global effort to understand,interpret and preserve the worlds natural heritage. A donation for the tour of $5 per person is suggested. Archbold Biological Station is eight miles south of Lake Placid. The entrance is 1.8 miles south of State Road 70 on Old SR 8.

By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Highway Park residents havev oiced major concerns over the ongoing dispute between the Easter celebration organizers and the Highlands County Sheriffs Office overt he past several weeks. Described as a culture clashby former resident Thida Black,many other residents have become con-c erned with the true nature of the HCSOs motives to disrupt a traditional event in ap rimarily black community. Black is just one of the few individuals who hasv oiced their concerns regarding the ongoing dispute. Last year the Sheriffs Office declared martial law on our community,whichw as uncalled for. (Sheriff Susan) Bentons argument w as that we followed no rules. Highlands County doesnt have a special events ordinance for us to follow when the county promised toh ave something in place for 2013. The citizens of Highway Park formed a committee and have been meeting everyw eek regarding Easter. We are committed to organizing the event to make it moref amily friendly and more safe,but I personally feel that Ms. Benton,along with otherc ounty officials,will place lots of hurdles in front of us t o prevent us from having the event,Highway Park resident and co-organizerO nterial Clark wrote in an email. T he event,which was held consecutively for 10 years in the Highway Park area with little to no issues,had become a beloved traditionf or residents and the many visitors it has drawn. The tensions began last March when Benton issued a postponement of the Eastere vent/Block Party due to concerns over safety and costly overtime. B enton told county commissioners last March that the event caused a traffici ssue. According to Benton,the v ehicles and people in the street blocked the flow of traffic in the area and wouldn ot allow for emergency vehicles to pass through in t he event they were needed in the area. Other concerns including large attendance,profane music,illegal drug use ands anitation were brought up to commissioners. Since then,meetings have been held between the sheriffs office and county commission to discuss updatingo r creating new guidelines and ordinances for special events,HCSO Public Information Officer Nell Hays said Tuesday morning. B enton has said numerous times that the safety of residents and law enforcement members are top priority for this and all events in thec ounty. Neither Benton nor Chief Deputy Mark Schrader werea vailable for comment Tuesday and phone calls and emails to Clark were also notr eturned at press time. People will come regardl ess of what we work out with the county,so I just hope county officials sin-c erely try to help us and not purposely place obstacles in f ront of us,Clarks email read.

C M Y K City Manager Julian Deleon is part of the reason,having b rought the citys government into the 21st Century,leaner and more efficient. T he disruption of lives and ill will resulting from this radic al,rapid change could have b een better handled by city o fficials,but we agree the c hange had to come. T he other part is how the c ity council has changed in its o utlook. T he members have a cohesive view of the citys future, something prior city councils l acked. They understand and h onor the separation of tasks b etween hired and elected offic ials. This council gives direct ion to city staff; it does not m icro-manage. M ost encouraging of all, some councilors have gained respect for Government in the Sunshine laws,and take them seriously. A perfect example occurred at the last council meeting. Councilor Parke Sutherland questioned the re-appointment of Arnold Davis to the Community RedevelopmentA gencs Southside advisory board the previous meeting. T he issue had nothing to do Davis,he hastened to add,but about how Davis,a long-timeb oard member,had been appointed. We may have usurped the mayor,Sutherland said. The mayor has absolute right,with the councils permission,to nominate a citizen to a board. I f the council votes down a mayors choice,it is the mayor w ho keeps nominating candidates until the council agrees. Sutherlands point was M ayor Sharon Schuler had nominated another individual, b ecause she felt it important to encourage new people to volunteer for public service. S utherland said,because the mayor had not nominated Arnold Davis,nor voted in his favor,the council had no right to place Davis on the advisoryb oard. City Attorney Gerald Buhr concurred. Initially,several council members thought the voting mistake minor; all were nowa greed on Davisselection, they just wanted to move on w ith business. Sutherland stood his ground. Proper procedure had to be fol-l owed,he said. With some grumbling,the n omination was revisited. Schuler nominated Davis,who was approved by unanimous vote. At first look,there is a tempt ation to agree with those who didnt see the big deal. Why go t hrough all the tedious steps if you know the outcome in advance? W e agree with Sutherland and Buhr,however,and thank t he attorneys for keeping the council on the up-and-up. Taking shortcuts and makinga ssumptions is what got prior councils into trouble. W e need to remember that corruption,the good olboy n etwork and nepotism made the Sunshine laws necessary in the first place.

There is a new atmosphere in Avon Park. O ptimism slowly grows. Enforce the lawsEditor: Why do the powers that be spend the money to print and put up traffic signs and then not have them enforced? If they (the traffic officials) would hire one man top atrol the parking lots in Sebring or elsewhere they could,if they enforced the laws,pay the wages of several policemen. I have just recently been issued a handicap tag for my rearview mirrors hangar andu se it in the designated spots when there is no parking spots open close to my destination. I check the reserved s pots in every place I stop for handicap tags. You would be surprised at the numbero f spots taken by untagged displayers. They should be tagged. If when they appear in court and show a handicap tag they should be fined double the regular fine for not showing the issued tag. I have seen folks in wheelchairs being pushed some distance from their destination because an untagged driver occupied space in the lot. Another spot that this patrolman could watch would be the places with signs warning not to block a driveway or entrance to a shop or mall entrance (I refer to the entrance off Flare Road) into the shopping mall there. There have been several accidents there already and will see an accident that will have deadly results unless this sign warning is enforced. I drive U.S. 27,Flare and Brunns Road quite frequently and have been passed while westbound on Brunns Road by a car traveling well above the 25 mile limit and when passing the police car parked up by the road was not stopped and tagged but was merely beeped by the patrolman,who when I passed him he was using a cell phone. I feel that the police force as a whole are doing a good job,but there are a few slackers who will not do the job they were hired to do. These are the guys who will be responsible for an accident in the future involving the guys they did not cite for breaking a traffic law in the past. With the population booming and the increasing number of cars on the road, being a policeman is not a job I would want.

Now,when there are violations,state officials and law enforcement will be able to act. Please vote yes in support of this bill. Anita Samson Lynn Haven A h,the income tax preparation season is upon us. Youre probably wondering whyy ou have to spend a couple of weekends barricaded in a room,sorting through receiptsi n the faint hope of complying with our confusing income tax laws. The income tax first c ame to America in 1861. Americans paid it to help finance the Civil War,butc ome 1871 six years after the war the tax was repealed. S ome politicians,however,took a liking to it. They t ried for the next 20 years to reinstate it. But the Supreme Court shot downt he income tax as unconstitutional. B y 1913,however,the income tax weenies finally won. The 16th Amendment was passed and the income tax was signed into law. H eres how it worked: Only those who earned m ore than $3,000 a lot of money in those days had to pay.And they onlyh ad to pay about 1 percent. The highest rate,for those w ho earned $500,000 or more,was only 7 percent. As you well know,these l ow tax rates didnt last. By 1918,the top rate the highest rate imposed on the highest earners rose to a whopping 77 percent.W hy? So America could finance World War I. And did the rates drop back to pre-war levels when the war ended? N ope. The top rate did fall from 77 percent to 25 p ercent but that still was 18 points higher than thet op rate before the war. Then Franklin Delano Big Government came to town. The top rate shot back up to 78 percent by1 936. In the 1940s,another war came along and the top rate skyrocketed to 94 percent. And did taxes go down following World WarI I? Nope. This time,the top rate stayed above 90 percent into the early 1960s. In 1960,John F. Kennedy got elected by promising to get America moving again. He pushed for but didnt live to see the top rate reduced from 90 percent to 70 percent under the Revenue Act of 1964,and his reductions did spur economic growth. So,when politicians realized that lower taxes resulted in more growth a nd productivity, they eagerly reduced income taxes further, right? H a,ha! Nope. The income tax wasnt reduced again until Ronald Reagan took over. I n 1981,the top rate was reduced to 50 percent. In 1986,in return for elimination of loopholes,t he top rate was reduced to 28 percent. Reagans tax reductions h elped spur the longest peacetime period of growth in American history. W hich brings us to the present. Today,the top fede ral income tax rate stands at 39.6 percent. But thats still lower than the topr ates of the past,right? Not exactly. F irst,loopholes that allowed taxpayers to avoid paying taxes were eliminated in 1986. Even though rates were higher in thep ast,actual taxes paid were lower. I stumbled across m y fathers 1959 tax return; after his many deductions,he paid only 2p ercent of his income in federal taxes. S econd,Social Security and Medicare taxes have increased rapidly over the y ears. Taxpayers pay an additional 15.3 percent of their income to support these programs. (The Social Security tax waso nly 1 percent when the program began.) Third,Americans are paying taxes in several ways that many are note ven aware of. We pay taxes on gas,utilities and p hone usage. We pay property,sales and transfert axes. And our states,counties and municipalities also tax our incomes. Add it all up and youll discover that for every dol-l ar you earn,you are lucky to keep even 50 cents. Thats something to muse about as you are barricaded in a room all week-e nd,getting your incometax return in order.

C M Y K CHARDON,Ohio (AP Wearing a T-shirt with killerscrawled across it,a teenager cursed and gestured obscenely as he was given three life sentences Tuesday for shooting to death three students in an Ohio high school cafeteria. T.J. Lane,18,had pleaded guilty last month to shooting at students in February 2012 at Chardon High School,east of Cleveland. Investigators have said he admitted to the shooting but said he didnt know why he did it. Before the case went to adult court last year,a juvenile court judge ruled that Lane was mentally competent to stand trial despite evidence he suffers from hallucinations,psychosis and fantasies. Lane was defiant during the sentencing,smiling and smirking throughout,including while four relatives of victims spoke. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, March 20, 2013Page A5 CENTRAL FLORIDA CASKET STORE &; 1.736"; 6"; Black; obit page; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 7 7 9 9 4 4 2 2 DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; cornerstone hospice; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 7 7 9 9 6 6 2 2 o rganizations wanting to sell rummage sale type items, craft artisans and product (except foods) distributors are also invited to bring their wares.

The quick response threw off his timeline,Weavers aid,and he killed himself before he could kill anyone else. Weaver has praise and gratitude for college staff and officials who also responded quickly and had a plan of action. It was a surreal,Weaver s aid,a very traumatic experience,an unreal feeling. I w oke up this morning thinking,ow,did that really happen? She said,like the majority of people faced with suchv iolence,shed never thought anything like this would ever happen at the college. It was beyond imagination. He had an assault rifle and a handgun,Weaver said. And four improvisede xplosive devices in his backpack. His goal was to g et as many people he could. You cant explain the e motions,she said,you have to go through it yourself. Weaver said many stud ents didnt want to be alone and slept in rooms t ogether on Monday night. Weaver,however,is determined to not let the experience affect the rest of her life. We just cant let something like this let us livein fear,she said.

C M Y K in a few words,Graham said,ut,believe me,is powerful. A lot of peoplew ill be stunned. Word of this will get around fast,and if anyone misses it,thell be sorry they did. The sprawling,epic prod uction of the life of Jesus Christ includes a cast of almost 250 people and 150 animals,including dogs, donkeys,goats,sheep,chick-e ns,ducks,doves,horses, oxen,llamas,and camels. Most members of the cast play several parts during the three hour presentation. Seven people portray Christa t different times in His life. More than 1,000 costumes a re used. Gallons of makeup are required. Hundreds of batteries are burnt out. M ore than 30 churches of all denominations particip ate. Entire families perform. Hardee High School students sign for the deaf.

P roduced by Power and Light Productions,The Story of Jesushas head-l ined many Florida newspaper stories. Radio and television stations have praised it a nd one feature found its way to affiliates across the U nited States on NBCs national network. In 2011,it w as featured in The New York Times under the title, A Passion Play Endures in Florida. More than 50 volunteers d onate huge amounts of time and energy,designing and p utting up the sprawling 250-foot set,parts of which are built on four semi-trail-e rs. ve been involved in thea ter for many years,said HHS media specialist Selden Spencer,who plays John theB aptist,ut the first time I saw this set,I was shocked. ve never seen anything that c omes close to it,anywhere, ever. P ower and Light Productions president Mike G raham said whereas most passion plays cover only the last three days of Christs life,The Story of Jesus tells the whole story. No production on Broadway can come close to w hat we present right here in Wauchula,he promised. The concept of the mamm oth project was born in 1984 when a group of t eenagers did a reenactment of the crucifixion,Graham said. In 1988,the first fullp roduction was performed in the Wauchula Civic Center. Now,in the Cattlemens A rena,we have a realism lacking in any other play anywhere in the country, Graham said. We do it in the dirt. You smell the earth. You feel youre part of it.Y ou get emotionally wrapped up in it. Businessman Kenny F arabee said the performance left him stunned. ords cant describe thee motional impact of it,he said. Its the most incredib le thing Ive ever experienced. Incidents bordering on the miraculous have occurredd uring the plays 23-year run. In 2004,Hurricane Charley demolished a barn in which Blackjack,a donkey that has appeared ine very performance,was tied. The barn was totally destroyed,Graham said. All that was left was the pole to which Blackjack wast ied,and Blackjack,without a scratch on him. Charley also destroyed a building in which truckloads of props and scenery weres tored. The scenery was untouched. The 1,000-plus costumes were stored in ar ental storage building whose roof was ripped away, but not one costume wasd amaged. Nevertheless,time is taki ng its toll,Graham said. Every year more and more repairs on scenery and patchwork on costumes is required. We need a permanent home. We have prayed a bout that for a long time. T he prayers seem to have been answered.

For the sushi favorites customers reallyl ove the Ruby Jade roll and the OMG roll,and the Hibachi favorites are salmon and filet mignon,Le revealed. T hough the favorites are always in heavy rotation in the kitchen,Cang Tong chefs spend a lot of time preparing new and exciting items that many customers arent sof amiliar with. Eel and seaweed salad are j ust a couple of the items from the sushi menu that brave diners are welcomedt o try. Sushi chefs are constantly busy at the sushi barr. T he new hibachi-style grill,however,is the highlight of every dining experience. Hibachi translates to fire b owlfrom Japanese and is described as a heating d evice. Chefs use the shichirin (in Japaneseor hot plate to cook. The tech-n ique is known as Teppanyaki the word is d erived from two parts,teppan,which means iron plate, and yaki,which meansg rilled,broiled or pan-fried. Our hibachi chef,Mark (Leeis amazing. He is a t op chef. Hes been doing this for 15 years,Le said. Wve been friends for a while. I called him up and told him I needed his help for the grand opening and asked if he would comed own for a while,but Ive convinced him to stay. Lee,who is from Georgia, has given Cang Tong his full attention since its opening and has made plans to relocate himself and his family to Sebring within the month. Most hibachi/Japanese restaurants feature numerousg rills. Le decided that Cang Tong could work perfectlyw ith a smaller setting. wo is good for us. We d ont need four or five like other restaurants have. Noth ere (in Sebring them later on,then an expansion is definitely a possibility,Le said. C ang Tong also features a f ull bar complete with wine and liquor options for customers. An experienced bartender serves the needs of diners each night. An array of different drink specials buy one get on free,happy hour, and more are availablew ith every dining experie nce. Drink specials are chos en daily by the bartender w ho creates traditional drinks,margaritas and Long Island Ice Tea,as well as one-of-a-kind refreshers like the Lychee Martini. Le,a hard-working wife and mother,greets each customer with a smile. I did this because there was a need. I think this townr eally needed a place where the younger crowds and y oung families can come and enjoy a unique atmosphere and great food. There arentm any places geared directly t oward the younger generations here and thats what I tried to do with this,along with introduce people to good Asian food,Le said. e have been very busy. Wve been slammed and the weekends can get a little crazy,but we have a lot ofh appy customers walking o ut. So its been really good. Cang Tong is at 110 Sebring Square in the WinnD ixie shopping plaza.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING On Friday, March 15, 23 mens and 15 womens pickleball teams arrived at Tanglewood to play in the Heartland Games for Active Adults coordinated by South Florida State College. Players came from several local clubs; Tanglewood, Highlands Ridge, Sebring Village, Sun n Lake and Crystal Lake as well as from clubs in Zolfo Springs, Solivita, Orlando, Leesburg, Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce. Before play started there was a draw for several prizes donated by Mt. Olive Pickles, the tournament sponsor. Gloria Soltes of Tanglewood won a pickleball paddle donated by PickleballNow. Play in five mens age divisions and four womens age categories started in very chilly conditions. As the day warmed up, the competition heated up as well on Tanglewoods eight courts. Local teams fared very well with Tanglewood taking home five gold, four silver and four bronze medals. Highlands Ridge emerged with two golds while Sun N Lake captured a silver and Sebring Village a bronze. Tanglewoods gold medals were earned by: Randy Crawfis and Gary Sewell, Debi Yandell, Jim Maynard, Michele King and Gloria Soltes, Marvin Strope and George Vermette. Betty Schleis and Kathy Sponholtz, Aart Devos and Mike March, Char Bowden and Cheryl McCullough, Homer Johnson and Mel McDonald took home silver medals for Tanglewood. The host teams bronze medals were captured by: Ben Blackwell and Pat Riess, Chris Jones and Ellen Nesbitt, Danielle Crawfis and Betty Dodge, Chuck Keller and Gordon King.

On Saturday, March 16, 28 teams returned to Tanglewood to play in the Mixed Doubles Pickleball segment of the Heartland Games for Active Adults. Play got started quickly under ideal weather condiBy BARRYFOSTER S pecial to the News-SunSEBRING The Audi dynasty ended at the 61stM obil 1 12 Hours of Sebring in much the same fashion they have over the past decade with an Audi vs Audi d uel from the green to the checkered flags. A lthough the seemingly b ulletproof Audi e-Quatros spent most of the oncearound-the-clock competition swapping the overall lead and setting fast times for the race, there were a wide variety of leaders in-class swapping the point in both GTand prototype divisions. At the end it tuned out to be a race of seconds. Benoit Treluver brought his No 1 Audi R18 across the finish line just 7.9 seconds ahead of six-time Sebring 12 Hour winner Tom Krisensen aboard the AudiSport Team Joest No. 2 car. In the highly competitive American Le Mans Series GT class, race leaders over the course of the 12 Hours included Ferrari, Viper, BMWand race winner Corvette. Tommy Milner took the lead in a late race pass, holding off the Risi Competizione Ferrari 458 Italia of Mateo Matucelli by just a 2.8 second margin. Although at the end, it was the Level 5team that finished 1-2 in the Prototype Two division. The class saw their share of competition as well. Among those at the point over the balance of the day were the Zytek LMP2 of Greaves Motorsports and the Extreme Speed Motorsports Honda Performance Development car. Level 5s Marino Franchitti ran through the checkers a full lap ahead of teammate Ryan Hunter Reay by a full lap. Both were driving Honda Performance Development ARx-03bs. Both the prototype and GT challenge classes also saw nearly every team have an opportunity to go to the head of their class. Leaders in the GT Challenge included class winners Team West/Alex Job Motorsports as well asTRG, Dempsy/Del Piero Racing, MoMo NGTMotorsports, Flying Lizard Motorsports and JDX Racing. While teams heading the LMPchallenge class included entries from RSR Racing, DragonSpeed Motorsports, BAR1 Motorsports and Performance Tech SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, March 20, 2012 N ASCAR This WeekB3 Audis dominate 12 Hours plenty of action in divisional competition News-Sun photo by ALLAN AYALA Audi did it again Saturday, taking the 12 Hours of Sebring with the No. 1 R18 E-Tron Quatros.

By TIM REYNOLDS A ssociated PressAndy Enfields team from Florida Gulf Coast is seeded No. 15 in the South Region, double-digit underdogs to Georgetown, certainly expected to make a one-anddone appearance in the N CAAtournament. Given all that, Enfield has a simple message for the Hoyas. If I were Georgetown, Id sleep on us. And hopefully they are, Enfield said, unable to even say the words without laughter. Theyre much better. They dont even need to show up. They can sleepwalk through the whole game. Mm-hmm. Nice thought. Wont happen. Florida Gulf Coast is only in its sixth season o f Division I athletics, and just its second season of tournament eligibility. Nonetheless, here come the Eagles (24-10 basketballs biggest stage, champions of the Atlantic Sun Conference who got an automatic trip to the NCAAs where Georgetown (25-6 will await in Philadelphia on Friday night. The Eagles resume: Afivegame winning streak to end t he season, a league championship that was won on the road against a rival Mercer team that had been 15-0 at home and had beaten Florida State and Alabama during the year and perhaps most impressively, a convincing win over Miami early in the season. Now comes the next, and by far the biggest, challenge. ere very confident. T hats the way weve been all year, sophomore guard Brett Comer said. Were not scared to play anybody. Were not scared of anybody. W ere trying to win this. Were not going out here just to put on a show T he school probably isnt one many know much about.

Actually, Mondays 9-8, 1 0-inning loss was further evidence of the turna round. I n the three-game series against their Suncoast Conference and intercounty rival, all three games were decided by one run which is saying something considering the lopsided look of each teamsseason record. Polk stands at 25-7 while South Florida is 1026, and yet the Panthers stood toe-to-toe with the Eagles in all three games, including Saturdays 2-1 win at home. After Polk scratched for the games first run Saturday in the top of the third, SFSC answered back and tied it in the bottom of the frame on a Carlos Matamoros RBI double. From there, starter Travis McPherson held the Eagles in check through the sixth inning, before Kevin Schubert came on in relief in the seventh. After a one, two, three top of the seventh, the Panthers got the tie-breaker in the bottom of the frame. With two out, Matamoros drew a walk and moved to second when Seth Abeln was hit by a pitch. L ucas Bagnara then bounced one up the middle that got through, bringing Matamoros a round for the go-ahead score. P olk would get a oneo ut single in the eighth, but Schubert worked around it to keep the lead and then worked a perfect ninth to seal the win. Pitching is the key for us and its improved so much, head coach Rick Hitt said. The first 25 games, the staff got pretty beat up and its taken us a while to where we can settle in and find our rhythm. ere not a team thas going to be hitting a lot of three-run homers, so weve got to pitch well and keep games close, he continued. But weve made some adjustments on defense and with the lineup which seems to be starting to click. It didnt click quite enough Monday night, but being able to play a toptier team virtually even through a three-game set is surely a sign of progress. South Florida is back to the Suncoast schedule today and Friday as they play host to St. Petersburg College with 6 p.m. start times.

In the 70-74 category, Jimmy Maynard and Gloria Soltes emerged with the gold after battling back and forth with silver medalists Gordon and Michele King of Tanglewood, winning the final set 3-11, 11-2, 11-8.

Solivitas Sid Petraglia and Cathy Miller captured gold in the tightly contested 65-69 year age group by defeating their opponents, John Prentice of Sebring Village and Barbara Danklefsen of Crystal Lake 11-5, 11-1 in the gold medal match up. Barbara Taylor of Crystal Lake combined with Ross Myles of Sebring Village for a bronze. Carol Hands of Bowling Green and Rene Meier of Zolfo Springs also earned bronze. Lorrie Key, Director of Corporate and Community Education and Lauren Reddick, Community Education Specialist from SFSC worked with the Tanglewood team to make this years tournament another great one. Lorrie had nothing but praise for the Tanglewood pickleball volunteers and said, the college couldnt have run the tournament were it not for Tanglewoods help. They know how to run a good tournament and have the facilities and people to do it right. This is the sixth year that Tanglewood has hosted the pickleball segment of the Heartland Games. Tournament Director Patrick Hotchkiss extends thanks to all of his volunteers with a special nod to Mary Holm for her excellent work as head scorekeeper. Mary was ably assisted by Ed Schmidt. Terry Athorn was the court coordinator and she had great help from Dale Wright and others. Marvin Strope was the rules official. Ben and Ruth Yantis handled food, Mel McDonald coordinated transportation and Betty Schleis was in charge of clean up. Thanks to each and every one who helped, played or watched this excellent tournament.

The final Sebring 12 Hours to be run under the banner of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron was one for the record books. The competition ran nearly u nabated with glitches that interrupted the action only b riefly A full-course yellow came out after the DeltaWng racers Elan engine gave way and caught fire. That incident started at Turn 17. T he car made it up the front stretch to Turn One, finally stopping at Turn T hree where corner workers raced out to attend to the problem. Shortly after that incident, the cutting-edge racer was r etired from the competition. Early in the race, the chrome and red prototype racer had been in for a long pit stop and the rear bonnet had to removed so the pit crew could work on a broken throttle piece. T he car later went behind t he wall for more extensive work. The DeltaWing had undergone major changes in the weeks before this years race. It now sports an Elan engine, Bridgestone tires as well as a number of different t eam officials and crew. I am encouraged by the progress we have made, said DeltaWing Team Manager David Price. We have chipped away all week and our track time has increased. I really thought we were in good shape. A nother full-course yellow was called when the Extreme Speed Motorsports LMP2 stalled and went awry at Turn Five. Ed Brown was at the wheel at the time. Driver David Brabham later went off course in the ESMNo. 01 car. He had to be towed back which caused yet another full course yellow. David was doing a great job and suddenlty he lost all drive in the car, said ESMs Scott Sharp. We are just scratching the surface with this new program but we have been out here at Sebring leading laps and leading ther ace. Team officials said it was caused by a broken input shaft which had sheared off a t the gearbox. The Muscle Milkteam h ad their share of problems. T he No. 8 Honda Performance Development lost its left front wheel. Driver Lucas Luhr had to limp the car all the way back around to the pits. The Corvette team crew members were busy replacing the gearbox in the No 3 car of Antonio Garcia on pit lane. That was a quick fix, but cost the team 15 minutes out of the race. The car already had gone behind the wall a couple times Early on the Corvette had been running well, setting a fast lap mark in class at 2:300:525 in the first half hour of the race, The No 4 Corvette subsequently had electrical issues in the dashboard with the car spitting smoke into the drivers compartment. C orvette wasnt the only team chasing electrical issues, as Dyson was also struck by the bugaboo in t heir Lola/Mazda LMP1 car. The team retired the car a fter an hours worth of tryi ng to locate the source of the problem There were several accidents throughout the race, but only one caused a car to be retired. That one happened just before sunset. The Team West/Alex Job Motorsports Ferrari 458 went out of control at the Gendebien Bend and hit the tire wall at Turn 15. Driver Bill Sweedler was not seriously injured, but it did again bunch the field behind a full-course yellow flag Earlier in the race, driver Mirco ShultisNo 81 spun after contact with the No 2 Audi e-Quatro being piloted by Alan McNish. The mishap also nearly collected the No 62 GT Ferrari of Oliver Baratta Ashunt the Muscle Milk LMP1 car and a Mathiasen Motorsports LMPChallengeO reca, sent both spinning in Turn 13. The cars continued on, but Muscle Mik driver Klaus G raf was given a penalty for avoidable contact. A number of penalties were assessed against several t eams during the 12 Hours as well. The infractions ranged from speeding in the pits, to having too many crew members working on the car to one for taking on mercy fuel.

And the athletic departm ent is making a quick splash at the Division I level as well. The womens basketball team went to the NCAAs last year and was upset in the conference title game this year. The mens and womens soccer teams both went to the Division I tournaments last fall. The baseball team recently swept a three-game series at perennial national power Florida. The softball team won a game in the NCAAtourney last spring. Even the swimming team is riding high,w ith five straight league titles. I n short, you dont want to be the coach at FGCU who doesnt have an office littered with trophies. e felt like we had to win this year just to keep up with everyone else at the school, Enfield said. So Enfield loaded up the schedule, not with easy wins, but with teams that w ould make the Eagles better come tourney time. And the start of their season was downright brutal. Just look at Florida Gulf Coasts first three games against Division I opponents there was a NAIA team in there as well, the lone bit of planned breathing room and how they were against VCU, Miamia nd Duke, a power trio that will take a combined 80 w ins and average seed of 3 into this weeks start to the NCAAtournament. V CU and Duke both rolled to easy home wins. Miami went into Fort Myers and lost 63-51. The Hurricanes are a No. 2 seed in the NCAAs, just like Georgetown. And Miami coach Jim Larranaga might have a word of warning for the Hoyas. The expression, they had nothing to lose and everything to gain very, very true, Larranaga said. My experience in the NCAAtournament is th is: The higher seeds have to play just as well in the early rounds as they think they might have to play if they got to the Final Four. Because if you dont, that team youre playing can beat you. Theyre in the NCAAtournament for a reason. ... And especially the underdog, they dont feel any pressure at all. Well, the Eagles would argue that last point. They feel pressure. They just dont show it that often. Enfield likes to run highe nergy, sometimes highc omedy practices. His team is encouraged to be loose, which has clearly helped camaraderie. But when its game time, the moods must get serious. Its a formula that might not work for every team, b ut it does for the Eagles. ere enjoying it, said senior guard Sherwood Brown, the teams leading scorer. But we have bigger goals than just getting here. Ayear ago, with a sub.500 record, the Eagles got to the Atlantic Sun title game in their first try, helda halftime lead before letting the game slip away. Itf ueled them throughout this season, carrying them through both the good times and the rough patch-e s. e know we have nothi ng to lose, Brown said. The Eagles were the first t eam to officially clinch a spot in the field of 68, and b y tip-off Friday night they will have spent nearly two weeks sitting around, getting healthy and getting ready. Enfield isnt worried about rust. His approach, he said, hasnt changed during this layoff. e have to do the things necessary in our game plan, Enfield said. We dont have to play a perfect game against Georgetown but we have to play well. And Ive told them, Hey, if youre good enough to beat Georgetown, you will. If not, theyll win the game. We try to keep it pretty simple around here.

But boy,is he rewarding us for the wait. A fter seven years,Justin Timberlake has finally released his third album, The 20/20 Experience, (RCA Recordss ab rilliant piece of work that plays like a musical movement. The 10 tracks (which average seven minutes) weave into one another beau-t ifully as his falsetto glides over each beat. Its an unconventional adventure thatm akes your bones groove. Seriously. Its hard to think of anothe r performer who can make a seven-minute track continuo usly engaging and refreshing,especially at a time when a five-minute song screams problemfor radio stations and our attention span getss horter with every tweet or text. One of the standouts of the album is the eight-minute event called Strawberry Bubblegum.Its smooth,a iry and full of sexual innuendoes,and it transitions into something thats heaven-like. Timberlake was flying high off 2006s multiplat-i num,Grammy-winning FutureSex/LoveSounds when he essentially walkeda way from music to act. In the interim,he made one very good movie (the Oscar-win-n ing Social Network) and several so-so ones,and almost seemed like another c ast member on Saturday Night Livwith all his a ppearances on the show. But despite all his attempts to put music on the sidelines, the question everyone always had for him was,When ist hat new album coming out? Maybe the former N Sync leader was stalling because of the monumental success that album triggered and thek ind of pressure that places on a performer. That burden may also be the reason why /20 echoes much of FutureSex/LoveSounds, one of the last decades best albums. When SpaceshipC oupecomes on,youll think of Until the End of Time,and Let the GrooveI feels like Sexy Ladies/Let Me Talk to You ( Prelude).Like FutureSex/LoveSounds, /20features producer Timbalands deft hand at the center of it all. I n some ways,it almost plays like a musical sequel, and if its not broke,dont fix it,right? Well,not quite. Timberlake loses some p oints for the lack of creativity. Yes,/20is near perfect,but its almost like hes plagiarizing some of his own essay,and thats slightlyu nfortunate. The album mirrors the futuristic R&B-esque vibe that helped Timberlakel eap to the top of the musical ladder only its not so futuristic anymore. B ut its still vital music that rises above the R&B p ack. That Girlstarts off with old-school appeal,but dabbles into contemporary R&B with a swagger thats also evident on Mirror.Youc ant do anything but move your shoulders to Dont Hold the Walland Pusher Love Girlkicks off the album with the right energy.E ven Suit and Tie,the solid yet a tad underwhelming first single,fits in nicely here. These days,its hard for any star to follow-up a mas-s ively successful album,and the challenge gets even steeper when a years-absence isa dded to the equation. But with a great album on his side,Timberlake should findh is return to the top a smooth ride.

C M Y K B y BOB GARVER Special to the News-SunThis past weekend saw an upset at the box office as The Callbecame thew eekends most successful new release,beating out the star-studded but formulaic magic comedy The Incredible BurtW onderstone. Maybe it was just my relief at not having to review that bomb,or maybe it was the excitement of rushingo ut to a movie after midnight Saturday,but I found the film to be surprisinglye ndearing. The same thing happened with Chronicle last year,and while TheC allisnt worthy of the near-rave review I gave Chronicle,I was at least glad to have gone out of my way to see it. H alle Berry stars as Jordan,a 911 operator who i s traumatized in films opening moments when she mishandles a call about a home invasion that leads to a girls death. She resignsf rom doing the job so she can teach it,but six months l ater shes compelled to take a call from another teenage girl. C asey (Abigail Breslin) has been kidnapped and l ocked in the trunk of a car thats speeding down the L.A. freeway. Casey notes t hat the trunk contains a shovel,which implies that kidnapper plans to kill and bury her. Personally,d be grateful t o see a shovel that I could use as a weapon or an escape tool,but she doesnt find it comforting. Oh,and the kidnapper is t he same creep from the home invasion (Michael E klund) who left Jordan shaken and defeated. C asey is on a disposable phone which cant be traced (of courseso she and Jordan have to come up with ways to lead police to thec ar from inside the trunk. Its certainly convenient that the car has an easily-breakable taillight that provides an opening. J ordan also has to help Casey emotionally,since she needs her to cooperate even though the girl is understandably hysterical. Cases constant wailing is annoying at times,but I suppose it lends itself to the movie better than going into silent shock,which would probably be the realistic reaction. Berry and Breslin have good chemistry in their interaction,and there more s ympathetic than a lot of the heroesve seen lately. For its final act,the film realizes that Jordan has yet to really get in on the action,s o it sees her personally follow a supposed dead end and confront the killer. It feels forced to have Jordan pursue a hunch alone,e specially when she has a cop (Morris Chestnut boyfriend. For the record, the killer doesnt even know that he and Jordan are mortale nemies. T he film could have had a funny moment where he gets his mind blown by the coincidence of his victims reaching the same 911 operator. Ic onsider it a missed opportunity. The killer is planning to do some gruesome things to Casey,and different gruesome things transpire. I wass atisfied with the punishment in the films final scenes,though I do question what kind of peace of mind the survivor(sve inw alking away from a deadly e nemy,no matter how badly there injured or restrained. The Callisnt particularly smart or original. Its special effects arent greata nd the main character spends most of the time at a call station. The intelligence of its villain is distractingly inconsistent,though MichaelE klund is effectively despicable in his performance. He might actually be the films most pleasant surprise, though I wouldnt call any-t hing about his character pleasant.I doubt the film will make a lasting impression. But if you really have a bug to go see a movie,youc ould do worse. You could wind up in Burt Wonderstone,for example. Two stars out of five. The Callis rated R for violence,d isturbing content and language. Its running time is 95 minutes.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING An Avon Park Special STARS athletes,who along with her disabled sister who had recently undergone open heart surgery,got a huge helping hand from the Sebring Moose Lodge. Minnie Sue Reid and her sister Mary Helen strive to live independently,but receive no services from any agency that could assist them with their home,which had a huge hole in the kitchen floor that opened to the ground below. The opening was allowing cold air in as well as bugs and other creatures. They were given an estimate of $350 for the repairs but they were unable to pay for them. Another $150 was needed to re-tile the kitchen floor. Special STARS Coordinator Cindy Marshall sent a letter to the Sebring Moose Lodge 2259 asking for help. Upon reviewing the request it was decided that the Loyal Order of the Moose,the Women of the Moose and the Moose Riders would each donate $200 for a total of $600 to Minnie Sue so that the repairs could be done. The repairs have been done and Minnie Sue and her sister Mary Helen sent the following letter to the Moose: Dear Moose Club, Thank you for the money you gave us to get our kitchen fixed,the floor was falling through. Now we have a new floor,a new counter top and a new sink and faucet with all the plumbing done that goes with it. Thank you. Minnie Sue Mary Helen P.S. Hope youre able to help many more people.

C M Y K B y SUE MANNING Associated PressLOS ANGELES People want their dog to be a friend, not afraid. But sometimes,fear grips d ogs so tightly they shake, cower,bite,growl or pee. It can be constant,painful and hard to overcome. Such dread can consume a dog when its freed from a cage at a puppy mill or hoarders home because thats the only life the dog has ever known. Until now,it was up to animal shelters to ease the fears,knowing if they didnt, euthanasia was the likely alternative. But this week, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals opens its Behavioral Rehabilitation Center at St. Huberts Animal Welfare Center in Madison,N.J. Its a two-year research project being financed by the ASPCA. For now,dogs seized from puppy mills and hoarders will be the primary patients, said Kristen Collins, ASPCAs director of anticruelty behavior rehabilitation and director of the center. It will also include some dogs that have been confined for long stretches as evidence in court cases. Dogs will come from shelters across the country as well as from seizures involving the ASPCA. Its groundbreaking and exciting,Collins said. Its the first ever facility thats dedicated strictly to providing rehabilitation for dogs that are victims of animal cruelty. The research will also provide some numbers,Collins said. No one knows how many shy dogs are being placed in homes now.And little is known about how they fare after placement,so center staff will spend a lot of time following up on animals. There are 27 kennels,an office,real life rooms,treatment rooms and common areas at the center. The average stay for most dogs will be six to eight weeks,ut we dont have a hard and fast rule. All dogs are individuals. We will be flexible,Collins said. A team of 10 people, including two behavior experts from St. Huberts, will staff the center. Volunteers and daily caretakers will feed the dogs and clean kennels. Graduating dogs will return to a shelter for placement and ASPCA shelter partners will continue working with the dogs if needed, Collins said. St. Huberts is a longtime disaster partner of the ASPCA and jumped at the chance to be involved,said President and CEO Heather Cammisa. Fear and anxiety are major factors that can hinder a dogs quality of life,she said. If they are hiding in the back of the cage and they are fearful,No. 1,they dont have a good quality of life and,No. 2,they are not going to be selected for adoption and when they go home,they are not really prepared to be the family pet that adopters seek,so this is just a win-all-around,she said. The ASPCA spent over half a million dollars on the building,Cammisa said,and will pay all other expenses, including vaccinations,spaying or neutering,treatments and other care. Weather permitting,the first few dogs will arrive in the next day or two from the Pacific Northwest,Collins said. They will be the last of 213 Alaskan malamutes seized from a Montana breeder who was convicted i n December 2012 of 91 counts of animal cruelty. After being starved and living in filth at the breeding facility,the dogs then had tob e kept in kennels as evidence for 16 months while the trial played out. Malamutes are 75-pound dogs. Eighteen of the dogs were pregnant. One pregnant dog only weighed 48 pounds and had eight pups. Only one survived,said Bob Sutherland of Anchorage, president of the Alaska Malamute Assistance League. The dogs were released to a humane society in Helena, Mont.,where they were spayed and neutered,and another group helped place the animals. While some dogs are in malamute rescues waiting for the right owner,many have found forever homes. Sutherland and his wife, Nicole McCullough,adopted one.

C M Y K MINNEAPOLIS (AP A Minnesota woman at the c enter of a long-running court fight over the unauthor ized downloading of copyrighted music said theres still no way she can pay record companies the $222,000 judgment sheo wes after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear her a ppeal Monday. The justices did not comment on their decision.A ttorneys for Jammie Thomas-Rasset,of B rainerd,argued the amount was excessive. The music industry filed t housands of lawsuits in the early to mid-2000s against people it accused of downloading music without permission and without payingf or it. Almost all the cases settled for about $3,500 apiece. Thomas-Rasset is one of only two defendants who refused to pay and wentt o trial. The other was former Boston University stud ent Joel Tenenbaum,who also lost and was ordered to pay $675,000. T he industry initially sued Thomas-Rasset in 2 006. Since then,her case has gone through three trials and several appeals. The industry presented evidence that Thomas-Rasset madea vailable over 1,700 songs to other computer uses via t he file-sharing service Kazaa,though the lawsuit targeted only 24 songs.

C M Y K As parents,we sometimes forget that part of our job ist o give kidsthe why behind the no. I am a firm believer in empowering children to make good decisions. I f we raise our kids in a because I told you so environment,they will grow up without the ability to make any decisions on their own. This is true,not onlyw hen it comes to decisions regarding safety (no,you c ant climb backwards down the monkey bars!) or practicality (no,you cant weary our fancy dress to play in the sandbox!),but also w ith respect to healthy food choices. When it comes to selecting and preparing food tasks you probably need tod o multiple times a day its especially important to t each your children why you make the choices you do, starting from the grocerys tore and ending up on your dinner table. H ow young is too young? Children are never too young to learn how to makeh ealthy choices. Infact,the younger your children are when you start teaching t hem aboutnutrients and the healing quality of foods,the b etter. That being said,its never too late to start teaching them about healthy eatingeither. So,how do you start t eaching them about healthy choices? When your children are toddlers,talk to them about why you choose the foods you do at the market and why you stick to the outsidep erimeter of the grocery store. Point out the foods y ou dont buy and explain why you arent buying them. As you feed them at snack or meal time,talka bout vegetables and meat making them big and strong.Tell them they need fruit to give them energy and water to make them feel good.Talk about the fact that certain foods might not tastes as yummy as others,but there important to eat. Tell your kids that sometimes you have to try a food seven or eight times before you know if you really like it or not. Make a sticker chart and keep track of how many times your child triesasparagus! When youre eating your own meals,make pleasurable sounds to show how much youre enjoying your beets and how yummy those mushrooms are. As they get a little older, explain to your kids that there are fastfoodsand slow foods.You can tell them that slow foods (likechicken and broccoli) give their bodies lots of vitaminsand energy that will last for a long time. You can also explain to them thatchicken has protein that makes their muscles grow and broccoli has nutrients that help keep them from getting sick. You can then say that fast foods (like fruit juice and chocolate) give fast energy that doesnt last for very long. Continue to explain to them about minerals and vitamins. Tell them youre giving them Greek yogurt because its a slow food that will make their teeth and bones strong. Explain that flavored yogurts have sugar in them, making them a fast food,so t hey should eat them less often. T ell them that youre serving cabbage because it makes their cells strong and prevents diseases,and that they eat avocado to maket heirbrains healthy and smart. E xplain that you eat foods from all colors of the rainbow becausethats the bestw ay to get all of the vitamins and nutrients you n eed,and that you eat healthy slow snacks through the day to make sure youh ave energy to get you through until bedtime. Talk about how youmentally d ivide the dinner plate into sections,filling half with v egetables and the rest with protein. You can continue to reinforce these concepts as your children make their wayt hrough grade school. Give them the freedom to make theirown choices for their lunchbox and get them to tell you why theve made the decisions they have. The assumption here is that yourf ridgeand pantry are stocked with healthy options so they r eally cant gowrong! See why this is a better approach than simply saying,ou have to eat the squash because I said so!?

When I was young, my father would fondle my mother when I came to sleepw ith them when I had a nightmare. (She would rebuff his advances.) He would also watch porn in front of me. As I matured,he made comments about my figure. He would barge into my room without knocking and insist he didnt have to knock. Hed tell dirty jokes or talk about sexually inappropriate things. (The day after my wedding he asked my husband how our wedding night had been.) But with all of this,he never touched me or assaulted me. His actions affected my self-esteem and relationships because as I grew up I thought the only thing I had to offer was being sexy. Thankfully,therapy and my husband helped me to see myself as a fully dynamic person. I recently began seeing a new counselor who thinks my father was just a dirty old man nothing more. Was I abused? Any information you have would be appreciated. Wondering in Wisconsin Dear Wondering: When a parent attempts to initiate sex or watch pornography in front of a child,it is sexualizing behavior and it could also be considered groomingbehavior. Your fathers actions were so far out of the normal boundaries that they were off the charts. And yes, it WAS a form of abuse. My advice is to change counselors. Dear Abby: My daughter is mentally ill,homeless and on meth. A year ago,when she wasnt so bad,she asked if I would take her 3-yearold daughter,Lucy,so she could get herself together. Unfortunately,she went the other direction. It was fine when I thought that the arrangement was temporary,but when I reali zed I would be raising Lucy as a single parent at 49, things got hard. My so-called friends have abandoned me,and so hasm y much younger boyfriend. But what is actually killing this is that I get no respite. I am an extreme introvert. Constant contact drains me. When I dont have my rechargetime,I tune Lucy out,and the next thing I know she has cut up the curtains or hidden my shoes. Im afraid Im just going to lose it. Work doesnt count; there are people there,too. Bad thoughts are going through my head because I feel such resentment. I know if I had time for my own mental health,I could be a good surrogate mother to Lucy,but if I cant,Im starting to think I may have to give her up,and that breaks my heart. I want to scream,to throw things, to just leave the house and walk until I drop. Please help me. End of My Rope Dear End: How much time do you need to recharge? Would it be an hour or hour and a half at the end of each workday? Would an afternoon during t he weekends suffice? Have y ou discussed this with L ucs grandfather or her paternal grandparents? They might be willing to get involved and lighten your load. Would a neighbor watch your grandchild on a regular basis if you compensated her or him? How about the person who already takes care of Lucy while youre at work? Please explore these options if you havent already. Screaming,throwing things and leaving the little girl alone are not viable scenarios. However,if you feel that you might harm her,it would be better if you placed her for adoption or in foster care.

Speaking Saturday night at the GLAAD Media Awards, Madonna started off in a mischievous mood. She joked that she wanted to become a part of the Boy Scouts herself, but was turned down, even though she had the qualifications. I can build fire. I know how to pitch a tent, said Madonna, sporting a Boy Scouts troop leader hat and a blue shirt and shorts set that included replicas of Boy Scout badges. I can rescue kitten. Most importantly, I know how to scout for boys, she said, before adding, I think they should change their stupid rules. The Boy Scouts of America does not permit openly gay people from serving in the organization a decision that has come under increasing fire over the years. Later, she got serious as she talked about the conflicts in the world and of the bullying of young gay, lesbian and transgender people. When I think about young kids in America who are being bullied and tortured, who are taking their own lives because they feel alone and judged, outcast and misunderstood, I want to sit down and cry a river of tears, Madonna said. Noting that she has teenagers herself, she said, Its an atrocity to me, I dont accept it. Madonna calls on Boy Scouts to lift ban on gays

C M Y K LIVING 12B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, March 20, 2012 I hope you all had a wond erful Race/St. Patricks Day weekend. I spent my birthday weekend playing golf with the family and going out to lunch on Sunday. T his week I want to talk burger.There are so many w ays to make burgers that it could make your head spin. You can even find Kobe beefb urgers these days and if you havent had one,they are w orth the few extra dollars to try one. When I worked in M ontana we made a burger called The Mountain Burger which had ground lamb, b ison and elk and it was topped with huckleberry k etchup. As first I thought, really?Then I tried one and that was the one I ate most often when I was in the mood for a burger. A t the hospital we offer four different kinds of burgers everyday in our Caf. The first is your traditional beef burger made of ground chuck. There is also a turkey burger,a black bean burgerw ith chipotle and finally a Boca burger,which is our v egan offering. I have the black bean burger more often than any of the others and that is because it has a little spicea nd smokiness in it from the chipotle,which are smoked jalapenos. I know there are some of you of there that love toh ave your burger topped with crumbled bleu cheese, and I couldnt agree more. But I have a twist on that combination. I have included a recipe that uses a black bean burger instead of beef, so I hope you enjoy it. Cheers,Chef.Bleu-Topped Black Bean Burger1-1/3 tbs.
