C M Y K By CAROLKLINE N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Myrtle Black, a resident of the Palms of Sebring, enjoyed a gatheringo f 27 family and friends on Saturday, March 23 to help c elebrate her 100th birthday. Myrtle shared memories of years gone by, especially ofa time when she was a professional dancer. B orn near Charleston, S.C., Myrtles family moved into Charleston where her f ather worked with the Treasury department. The family eventually transferred to Augusta, Ga., where Myrtle graduated highs chool and attended a junior college there. She went on to the University of Georgia at Athens, but decided to elope in her junior year. M yrtle Fooshewas married to James Clifton Black o n Nov. 11, 1934 and had two children: James CliftonJ r., born June 20, 1937, and Mark Douglass, born Aug. 17, 1949. The family moved to Miami in 1940, where Mr. Black began working for PanA merican Airlines as an engineer. He died in 1970. Myrtle went to work for the postal service, but later worked for the InternalR evenue Service until she retired in 1978 at age 65. My cousin kept telling me I should find some kind of hobby, said Black, and I already knew I loved to dance. In her mid-50s, Myrtle Black started learning Latin dances in Miami at the Fred Astaire studio, then progressed into private lessons a t the Arthur Murray studios as well. It was very difficult, she explained, because you hadt o learn each step, each move and turn, exactly right. You were graded for everything. Myrtle seemed to have a n atural talent and was asked to travel along with other dancers in various competitive dance events. Sponsors paid for outfits and travele xpenses. She toured the country with competition wins in places such as Houston, Las Vegas, Tampa, New Orleans, and many of the grand hotels along Miamis beaches. In 1965, she won first place at a national competition in New York City. My son Doug wanted me to learn to dance, Black e xplained. He thought it was a good idea. I wanted h im to learn, too, but he didt and now he wishes heh ad. I moved to Sebring in 1980 because a friend who was also a dancer kept asking me, Black said. Shea nd I would room together when we traveled to the competitions. But my home here in Sebring was destroyed in2 004 by the hurricanes, she continued. Myrtle Black came to live at The Palms some time later and enjoys her life here. She keeps busy and active; she loves to play Wii games and bingo and, whenever there is entertainment, Myrtle is right there. Black had a natural rhythm and talent for learning the exciting tangos, the beautiful waltzes, and all the graceful ballroom dances.S he has 13 trophies. When asked why she gave up dancing, Black explained that the studios were closing in and around Miami. Whens he decided to move to Sebring, there were no stud ios in the area. It was time to hang up her dancings hoes. Abeautiful gathering of caring family and friends honored a lovely genteel woman; a lady who enjoyedt he glitz and glamour of gowns and ballroom elegance for many years while working full time. Today, with her mind so sharp andc lear at 100 years young, Myrtle Black is still a lady of grace and charm.

News-Sun staffSEBRING Lightning caused a wildfire that burned 14 acres in the southwest part of Highlands Hammock State Park on Monday. According to an email from Melissa Yunas of the Florida Forest Service, the fire was first spotted from the 110-foot Sebring fire tower on Hammock Road. (Mondays) visibility was 15-20 miles, Yunas wrote. Forest Ranger Kari Sikio was observing the skyline looking for wildfires and verifying authorized burns ... Sikio notified his colleagues and they quickly responded to investigate the smoke that was reported. Florida Forest Service dozer and two engines investigated, verified and contained the wildfire. The Florida Forest Service turned over the fire to the Florida Park Service, which is mopping up the fire and will remain on scene until it is out. At fire readiness level two, which anticipates a very active fire day, the Florida Forest Service mans the Sebring Fire Tower from 10 a.m. until noon and from 1-5 p.m., Yunas wrote. Lightning strike sparks brush fire in Hammock WASHINGTON (APThe Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that police cannot bring drug-sniffing police dogs onto a suspects property to look for evidence without first getting a warrant for a search, a decision which may limit how investigators use dogs sensitive noses to search out drugs, explosives and other items hidden from human sight, sound and smell. The high court split 5-4 on the decision to uphold the Florida Supreme Courts ruling throwing out evidence seized in the search of Joelis JardinesMiami-area house. That search was based on an alert by Franky the drug dog from outside the closed front door. Justice Antonin Scalia said a person has the Fourth Amendment right to be free from the governments gaze inside their home and in the area surrounding it, which is called the curtilage. The police cannot, without a warrant based on probable cause, hang around on the lawn or in the side garden, trawling for evidence and perhaps peering into the windows of the home, Justice Antonin Scalia said for the majority. Supreme Court: Drug dog sniff is unconstitutional search

She has been in jail since July 10 of last year. She will be on probation for nine years following her release. Both also have financial obligations to the state, including $2,500 fines. Because alcohol and drugs were a factor in the Doty killing, both young women are prohibited from using alcohol, illegal drugs and medications without a doctors prescription or entering a place where alcohol or illegal drugs are sold or associating with those who do. They are subject to warrantless searches and drug tests during their probation. Any violation of probation results in incarceration. If Hebert slips any time during the nine years, she will spend 15 years in prison. On the other hand, if the women turn their lives around they may have their probation reduced later.

C M Y K T oday,however,stupid is the only word to describe the v andals who went out on a county-wide BB attack over the weekend. W e dont even bother to ask What were they thinki ng?We cant believe they were thinking at all. Whoever they are,they should be ashamed of themselves. Unfortunately,wed oubt thats the case. We doubt the vandals have the i ntelligence to know how much money it takes to replace a plate glass display window. If they do,they forgot about insurance deductibles. The fact is,we doubt the miscreants care at all. Lora Todd,whose store w indow was one of the dozens shot out,said,As ab rand new business that opened last month,this isd evastating to have this addit ional cost to bear along with a ll of the normal start-up c osts. The money I now need to spend on repairs was budg eted to buy new merchand ise. S ome of the victims like the Boys & Girls Emporium and the Childrens Museum o f the Highlands are nonp rofits,which serve the community and (even more so t han most businesses these d ays) have no money to s pare. And it wasnt just windows that were destroyed. The Brenner Pottery and Craft Gallery alone incurred more than $1,000 in merchandise damage. O ne good thing has come o ut of this senseless,moronic act. The community is reach-i ng out to the businesses and organizations that were attacked. We ask everyone to show their support and stop by a vandalized store to buy something. Even more important,we ask anyone knowing anything a bout this crime to please call your local the law enforcement agency. D ont let this anti-social a ct go unsolved. As for the immature,irresponsible,chowder heads who perpetrated the destruction,they now live under the cloud of very bad karma. To use two well-known q uotes:Stupid is as stupid does,and what goes around comes around.

Dont balance budget on backs of poor childrenE ditor: Head Start and Early Head Start programs are facing devastating budget cuts that will slam shut thew indow of opportunity for nearly 70,000 at-risk children as well as cause many community organizations across the nation to lay offm ore than 14,000 teachers, teacher assistants and staff.

For nearly 50 years Head S tart has been preparing our neediest children for school,leading the earlyc hildhood field in innovation and quality through h igh standards and relentless insistence on excellence.

Had the initial screening not been completed in the Head Start center,how old would the child have been before it was found? No previous vision problems had been noted from her pediatrician. Would she have started school unsuccessfully because she could not see? We will never know the answer to that because Head Start and RCMA was allowed to do what they do:provide services to children and families. These cuts are devastating,and make it harder for us to serve Highlands Countys poor and needy families. The automatic budget cuts from sequesterrepresent a devastating cut to the atrisk children we serve and a deficit of leadership from our elected officials. Our nations budget simply cannot be balanced on the backs of our poor children. Patricia L. Wiggins SebringMoonlighting work was costlyEditor: Residents of Highlands County In 2006,I had my house remolded by a Highlands County certified law enforcement officer doing moonlighting. He put on handy board on the outside of the house, didnt caulk anything,didt wrap chair rail on ledger board,back lip. Leaking around windows and rotted out beneatht hem. Put on coat of paint on board and it washed off. T he board is peeling off the outside from lack of enforcement and caulking.T he french door he put in didnt get caulked,there w asnt a seal put around the door,it rained in my house,black mold around the door jam and door had to be replaced. The fronts torm door was improperly put in and one screw per h inge,door fell. The garage door he installed fell in on one side,improperlyi nstalled,not enough screws period. H e charged me more than $14,000 and it will cost me $10,000 to correcta ll his mistakes. I was royally scammed out of $14,000. Who can you trust i f you cant trust a certified Highlands County officer? C arol Shaner Lake Placid BouquetNeighbors, others thanked for saving propertyEditor: O ur home was one of the ones in Golf Hammocks everely threatened by the wildfire Thursday evening. We are overwhelmed when we see the proximity of the damage to our home anda re grateful beyond what words can express that we were spared from it. Our tremendous thanks go to amazing firefightersw ho risked their own safety to prevent loss to others. Their dedication and care are so very much appreciated. We are also extremely grateful to our dear neighbors,Captain J.P. Fane of Highlands County Sheriff's Office and Dan Feathers who worked to turn on sprinklers and drag hoses to fight yard fires that sprang up for some of us who were not home. To all of you who worked so hard to prevent further damage and to God for His mercy, we say a very inadequate but very heartfelt thank you. Dick and Beki Lievestro SebringAngels do walk among usEditor: I just want the whole world to know that there really are angels walking among us. My wife Joanne had a stroke and has been at the Kenilworth Care and Rehabilitation Center for four months. Her right arm is paralyzed and she cant walk,but the wonderful girls and guys there are trying to turn her around. They really care. My wife calls them her angels. I just want to emphasize there the ones who do the work,and they dont get the recognition they deserve. They take care of the people we love and I appreciate them so much. There really are angels walking among us. Roger Jefferson Sebring Public transit is a critical need in Highlands County. Not having a public transportation system creates a tremendous hardship for people who dont own a car and cant afford to buy one as well as for people who dont drive and can no longer drive because of physical or mental disabilities. In the 2011 Transportation Disadvantaged Service Plan for Highlands,Hardee and Okeechobee Counties,prepared by the Central Florida Regional Planning Council,it is estimated that close to 10,500 elderly, low-income and disabled persons in Highlands County qualify as transportation disadvantaged. So how do these residents get to medical appointments,do their shopping,get to places of employment and educational institutions,and get their personal business done? As we all know,many depend upon relatives,neighbors,friends or church volunteers. Faith-based volunteer nurses logged in 85,000 miles taking parishioners shopping and to medical appointments in 2012,according to Florida Hospitals faith-based nursing program director Suzanne Crews. Others car pool or van pool,primarily to get to and from work and educational facilities. A few rely on taxis,but taxis can be expensive,especially when traveling from remote parts of the county to Sebring or Avon Park. Highlands County also has a transportation disadvantaged program,which is mandated by the state for all counties. Veolia Transportation coordinates the program as well as the programs in Hardee and Okeechobee counties. Veolia contracts with four private carriers. Classie Transportation,Hayes Medical Transport,and RGK Transport provide non-emergency trips. Positive Medical provides non-emergency stretcher trips and all trips between the hours of 6 p.m and 7 a.m.,when the other carriers are not in service. Veolia is assisted by the Central Florida Regional Planning Council. It conducts planning,applies annually for grants,serves as the pass through for the grants,and oversees the program. Trips are either unsponsored or sponsored. Unsponsored trips are trips by individuals paid for either by Medicaid or by grants. Sponsored trips are trips paid for by social service agencies, which generally request them to take clients to agency-sponsored programs. Grants generally include an annual State Transportation Disadvantaged Trust Fund grant with a local match, and Federal Transit Administration grants. According to Veolias 2011/2012 annual operating report,the company provided 128,300 trips to 4,910 individuals from July 2011 through June 2012. Revenue totaled $1,854,000. Unsponsored trips accounted for 80 percent of the revenue. While that amount of income may sound impressive,expenses totaled $1,941,000,leaving a deficit of $87,000. Veolia had to deny close to 1,000 trip requests,primarily due to lack of funding. The majority of the trips were for medical purposes. This is the third year that expenses have exceeded revenues. Veolia General Manager Tim Banks explains the situation this way. Seven or eight years ago,we had no trouble servicing everyone who needed a trip. However,in recent years,State and federal grants have been cut. Even more devastating,we have had large reductions in Medicaid reimbursements, a shortfall which has created an extreme financial burden. Weve also seen increases in our overhead costs. e have cut expenses everywhere possible to reduce the losses and avoid having to deny trip requests. I am hopeful that we will be operating in the black again by the end of this year, Banks said. Veolia has taken other steps. Nowadays,when a person calls,we make sure that person does not have anyone else who can take them to their destination. We also request two weeks advance reservations,when possible. The delay encourages people to look elsewhere,and often they do (find alternative means of transport),Banks explained. Veolia is uncertain how new Medicaid regulations,which will move more Medicaid recipients into managed care plans,will impact funding. But unless there are significant increases in revenue,through grants or Medicaid, fewer trips will be a daily reality. We cannot provide what we cannot pay for,Banks said. Clearly,new modes of transportation are needed. Banks believes a circulator bus operating between Sebring and Avon Park would help alleviate the situation.

C M Y K d ent of SFSCs Student Government Association. almost dropped out of highs chool, but I stayed and that decision opened up a lot of d oors. The laughs filled the University Center auditoriuma s the tales of Cosbys life unfolded before the eager students. Cosby began telling t he story of when he finally decided to get his life togethe r after several years of goofing off. I was 19 when I finally woke up ... and in the 11th grade. When I saw all the lit-t le brothers and sisters of my friends I use to hang out with walking up and down the hallway that was it and I quit, Cosby said. It is your responsibility. You are born with a certain amount of intelligence that has to be e xercised. You can keep having your quote, unquote fun, but sooner or later somethingi s going to force you to compromise. C osby stated that following his turning point in school he joined the Navya nd entered Temple University at the age of 23. Cosby had plans to become a s chool teacher, saying that he wanted to break boys of their b ad habits and negative ways. I wanted to be a school teacher, so bad. I wanted to tell these boys that they had ab rain, Cosby said. After spending no time in high school studying accepting Ds and asking to be passed along, Cosby got his first dose of reality and a high when he entered into a classroom prepared and a rmed with the knowledge to ace a big exam. That feeling of knowing y ou know your stuff, that feeling you get when you sit d own to take a test and you know it, Ill put that feeling up against any marijuanay ouve ever smoked and anything youve ever drank, Cosby said, the auditorium e rupting in laughter. Cosby said life had taught h im a number of things, things he wishes to pass on to this generation and the ones that follow. Cosby answered an array of questions regard-i ng education, time management skills, personal setbacks and past hurdles. Atouching moment emerged when Cosby spoke to 49-year-old LouGinger Moses, a woman who has struggled to overcome a 15y ear-long drug addiction and i s currently going after her GED. Dont play the game of the years, Cosby said. If y ou are 50 years old crossing that stage to get your diploma, then so what? Youre going to be 50 anyway. Itll be an old person graduation, everyone walking across the stage like this, all slow, with their diplomas in their hands. It doesnt matter who you w ere, it matters who you are. This is your life, celebrate w hat you are given and work it. over, Tracy Rademaker, a ssistant property manager for Gene Brenner said Sunday morning. Everybody arrived, including Gene, but we sent him home. Brenners pottery shop on the Circle had more than $1,000 in damage to merchandise in addition to the broken window. Exactly what is going on? When I was growing up wed never do something like this, Rademaker said. We knew our parents would kill us before anybody e dont have a specific time, so we are looking through hours and hours of video, Lake Placid Police Chief James Fansler said Tuesday, adding that another broken window had been discovered that morning to bring the count for Lake Placid up to 23. e have several businesses that are closed on Mondays, so I anticipate a few more calls today Fansler said. Sebring Police Commander Steve Carr said Tuesday morning that the count in Sebring was 28 and that his investigators were also checking security cameras. Theres a lot of places to v isit and its time-consuming, he said. Nell Hays said the Highlands County Sheriffs Office is working 21 cases, eight of them with Avon Park addresses. e will be looking for anything we can find to help us not only determine who did this, but a timeline as well, Hays said Tuesday. On Monday, the Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency commissioners voted to relax their facade grant restrictions as a way to help out the businesses downtown that were hit by the vandals. Business owners in the 650-acre Sebring CRAdistrict can apply for a reimbursement that will cover 60 percent of their out-of-pocket expenses, and the usual $1,000 minimum expense level is waived.

Anderson asked in a Nov. 26, 2012 letter to Long that the company replace $162,000 worth of equipment and repair another $58,000 in damage. L ong wrote the following week, You could have at least had the courtesy of speaking to me about your trying to pass the buckon the damage that was done to your equipment; instead you sent me ac ertified letter. I should have expected this when you asked me if I thought your insurance would pay for the damage to your machines. My answer to you was, No, Id ont think so.So what do you do? You have the disrespect to come after me, just because I do have insurance. L ong says he refused to give Anderson any of his insurance information. In a Jan. 22 letter to Deleon, Long c laimed that Anderson used his position as a city councilman to try to get Longs i nsurance information. Long called for the new councilmans resignation at that time. T he city government up until this point was not yet involved, or even aware of the situation, Deleon said Monday. Then Long filed the official complaint Jan. 22 against Anderson with the city. W orried about the issues involving a sitting councilman, Deleon turned Longs complaint over to Buhr for review and recommendations. Anderson makes firearm ammunition a t 18 S. Butler Road. Deleon contacted S.Y. Mosely, building inspector for the county, in writing, asking him to checki nto the situation. Mosely could not find permits for all of the work on the building, particularly for an indoor office or much of the electrical work. He added that ane ngineer should be brought in to inspect the construction. I n his turn, Anderson charges Deleon targeted his business, harassing him with code enforcement inspectors looking fora reason to shut him down. Anderson said he believes the harassment is politically m otivated. I n a March 7 letter of complaint to the states Ethics Commission, Anderson wrote that Deleon had begun harassing him after he objected to giving Deleon more time to move to Avon Park. A nderson also claims Deleon continu ed his attack by contact the BATF (The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) and filing a false complaints against myself and Anderson Arms. Mr. Deleon maliciously alleged that I was engaging in illegal activity and should be shut down immediately A nderson said the BATF inspection found Anderson Arms to be in full compliance. I feel that I have been the victim of Mr. Deleons abuse of power and authori ty as the city manager of Avon Park. I know Mr. Deleon will not stop until he feels that I have been punished for disa greeing with him, he said. F aced with a complicated scenario involving an elected official, the city council voted to search for an independe nt, third-party investigator. Continued from A1 Dispute prompts investigation in AP Deleon SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP The mother and aunt of a teenage suspect in the fatal shooting of a baby in his stroller have been arrested on charges that they lied to authorities, police said Tuesday. After their arrests, both women gave police new information that helped lead investigators to a small saltwater pond where they found a handgun, Glynn County police Chief Matt Doering said. He said the gun was being tested to determine whether it could be matched to the slaying last week of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago. The new arrests targeted relatives of 17-year-old DeMarquise Elkins, who is jailed on murder charges. The slain childs mother, Sherry West, says she was pushing her baby in his stroller Thursday near their home in Brunswick, 80 miles south of Savannah, when a gunman shot the child in the face and wounded her after she refused to give money to him and a younger accomplice. Elkinsmother, 36-yearold Karimah Elkins, and his aunt, 33-year-old Katrina Elkins, were booked Tuesday morning at the Glynn County jail on charges of making false statements to police, a misdemeanor. Jail records show both women were released after posting bond. e arrested them last night and brought them back to headquarters, where we afforded them the opportunity to make additional statements, Doering said Tuesday.

Having won their first nine g ames of the season, the Red Devils have been staggering while going just 2-6 since. Though it looked like the Blue Streaks might be staggered early as starting pitcher Matt Portis got the first out of the opening inning, but surrendered a double to TyroneP erry and promptly plunked both Josh Gomez and Steven Flowers to load the bases. But Portis locked in to strike out the next two batters on eight pitches to get out of the early jam. Sebring then took advantage of some Avon Park control issues as Flowers lasted for just five batters, walking two, hitting one and giving up a single to Wyatt Johnson and a double to Garrett DeRoss the brought three runs across the plate. Austin Stadie came on in relief but had his own control issues, walking Jimmy Peck on four pitches before head coach Whit Cornell pulled the plug quickly and brought Perry to the mound. The hard-throwing right hander struck out the next two batters before inducing an inning-ending comebacker.

Yates, the regular season champions, played Schoonis eight times, with three being the largest run differential between the two teams. Five of the games were decided by one run. e won these trophies as a team, proclaimed Yates manager and defensive whiz Dick Cook as he accepted the trophies from league president Ray Hensley prior to the postgame picnic, a league tradition after the final game. Cook started three double plays from his shortstop position, including the game-ending play that wiped out the last Schoonis rally. Schoonis also flashed some leather themselves. Outfielders Doran Quigg and Bill Gallagher, along with rover Mike Kratt, turned in exemplary plays in the field to thwart potential Yates scoring opportunities. Paul Brand (two doubles, triple) and Dave Bilyea had four hits each tol ead the Yates offense. Winning pitcher ahoo Stanley homered to support his own cause.

How we treat our vehicles has also changed dramatically. Much of the conventional wisdomp reached by our fathers and grandfathers with respect to vehicle maintenance has fallen by the wayside in the 21st century,as manufacturers of both vehicles and vehicle maintenancep roducts have changed the way they do business. AMSOIL INC.,the industry leader in synthetic motor oil,n otes that many of these changes cannot only improve how our vehicles run,but save us some cash as well. Petroleum motor oils are no longer the gold standard. Many vehic le owners practice the same credo with respect to vehicle maintenance. That is,If it has worked in the past,s tick with it.Advancements in automotive technology,however,have led m any to abandon that credo,or at least to modify it. Perhaps no technological advancement has done more to change how we view vehicle maintenance than thee mergence of synthetic motor oil as a superior alternative to traditional p etroleum motor oil. Once the industry standard,petroleum motor oils w ell-earned reputation for forming sludge,gums and varnishes as they break down has led industry insiders and even weekend car enthusiasts to embrace synthetic motor oils.B ecause of their ability to resist the stresses of high temperature oxidation and evaporation loss,synthetic motor oils are far more resistant to sludge and deposit formation,enabling vehi-c le engines to run more smoothly and offer greater fuel efficiency. Cars can crack the 100,000 mile b arrier and still be reliable. During the recession of 2009,many vehicle owners began looking at their cars andt rucks as more long-term investments. Whereas the years leading up to the r ecession saw many vehicle owners trading their cars in after three or four years,the post-recession vehicleo wner now wants more bang for his buck. F ortunately,its now entirely possible to keep a car running strong for 100,000 miles or more. And many of the keys to doing so dont require a trip to the mechanic. With thea dvancements in engine design, breakthroughs in engine metallurgy a nd the use of synthetic lubricants, motorists are now keeping their vehicles 24 percent longer than they were in 2002. Money not spent on new vehicles is money in the pocket. Positive advancements have b een made in the vehicle maintenance industry. Synthetic motor oils,for e xample,greatly enhance a vehicles performance. The uniform molecular structure of synthetic oil helps engines operate more efficiently by reducing friction and wear,improving performance in extreme temperatures and,b est of all,by improving fuel economy. So while conventional wisdom m ight infer the auto industry has regressed during the 21st century,the advancements made in automotive maintenance technology have enabled vehicles to perform better and last much longer,helping drivers savem oney while restoring their peace of mind. F or more information,visit www.amsoil.com. CARCARE Changes in conventional car care wisdom help your bottom line Metro ServicesR educing fuel costs is foremost on the minds of many drivers. Myriad costs are associated with owning an automobile,many of whicha re within a drivers control. One of the costs associated with driving that some drivers may mistakenly feel is beyond their control is the cost off uel. Drivers might not be able to control the price at the p ump,but there are many ways drivers can spend less on f uel,helping them save money and helping the environment along the way.Emphasizing efficiencyA few minor adjustments is all it takes to make a car more efficient and save drivers,r egardless of their mechanical inclinations,money at the filli ng station. Adequately inflate tires. T ires that are not properly inflated increase drag on a vehicle,which then consumes more fuel to operate at full capacity. Check the driversm anual for the manufacturers recommended tire pressure, and check the tire pressure frequently to ensure your car isnt working harder than itn eeds to. Clear out the trunk. A c ar filled with clutter is carrying unnecessary weight,maki ng it harder for the car to accelerate and consuming more fuel than it should be. Open the windows at lower speeds. Air condition-i ng consumes lots of fuel,and many auto experts suggest rolling down the windows when driving at lower speeds. Spend wiselyH ow youre spending at the pump can also help you r educe fuel consumption. Fill er up! Many drivers avoid filling up their tank when visiting the gas station for fear that filling up the tankm akes the car heavier, decreasing the vehicles fuel efficiency as a result. While that may be true,drivers who dont fill up make more tripst o the filling station,and those trips can waste fuel. Pay for gas with a card that rewards you with cash for m aking purchases. While using a cash-back credit card wont reduce your fuel consumption,it will earn you some money back on yourf uel purchases. Dont pay more for fuel your car wont utilize. Some drivers might feel as though putting a high-octane fuel int heir vehicles will improve the vehicles performance. But t hats not the case. Reduce fuel consumption to save money and help the planet

C M Y K Dear Abby: Im a 51year-old woman with a question. What do you recom-m end a person do or say when being lied to? Im not talking about the little white lies we all tell to spare someones feelings,smootht hings over,etc. I once had a 21-year-old man tell me that he was a veteran of a war that had been over for 10 years! I felt like an idiot pretending to believe him and knew hed be laughing at me later,but frankly,I felt scared to confront him. Heard A Whopper Dear Heard A Whopper: If you have reason to feel that the person talking to you is being untruthful,be polite and end the conversation. And if your intuition tells you the person is someone to be afraid of,put as much distance between you as possible and avoid that person in the future. Dear Abby: I am a plussized woman. I am loud and boisterous,and I like to surround myself with similar women. However,there is a problem I am now facing. Many of my friends have made amazing transformations and gotten fit. I am fully supportive and impressed,but I see the price they are paying. They are no longer confident and vivacious. They have become timid,approval-seeking shells of their previous selves. Why do newly thin women forget how awesome their personalities used to be? Big Beauty in Illinois Dear Big Beauty:Not knowing your friends,I cant answer for them. But it is possible that having become transformed and fit,they no longer feel they need their loud and boisterous personas to compete for attention. Dear Abby: When I was growing up,my father would ask my mother what she wanted,and then he would buy the opposite. For example,if she wanted a brown sofa,he would buy a blue one. One day I realized that he acts the same way toward me. He will ask my opinion about the color of something like an appliance then buy the opposite color. Is there a name for this behavior? Anonymous in Atlanta Dear Anonymous: Yes, there is. It is called passive aggression,and its a way of demonstrating veiled hostility without being directly confrontational. Dear Abby: I hope you will print this because Im sure many women share this dilemma. My boyfriend, whom I adore and who is one of the kindest men on Earth,wants me to perform a certain sex act on him. WhileI understand that many people and I dont judge them enjoy it,I am not one of them. I would feel degraded if I even tried it. He says he wont pressure me about it,yet he talks about it a lot. Just listening to him talk about it puts unwanted pressure on me. I have tried to be honest with him. I told him I dont want to do this,but Im afraid if Id ont,it will damage my relationship with him. However,if I give in,ll end up feeling self-loathing and resentment. Either way,i t will be damaging. Wre in our 40s. Please offer any advice you might have. Worried in California Dear Worried: You are indeed not alone in this dilemma. You should not have to do anything you are uncomfortable with. The next time your boyfriend raises the subject,turn the discussion to amorous activities you both enjoy.Then suggest that instead of this particular sex act,you engage in his No. 2 favorite.

Lets just look at damage that this word does to all of us. 1. I dont have enough t ime. How many times do you say this one? We all have the same hours in every single day. Enough time to clean it the way your momma made youw hen you were a child. Enough time to get it right. S o when we believe this lie; we stop dead in our tracks and do nothing. 2 I dont have enough help around the house. Oh, b oy... There are no excuses for this attitude. 3. I dont have enough money.We have all said this one; over and overa gain. Do you want to know the truth of the matter? Rita D avenport taught me. If money will fix it; it is not a problem. If we will quitw asting our money on quick fixes we will have all we n eed. Say no to buying more clutter. This will happen once the clutter is outo f your home. You will find a new freedom from letting go of your clutter. 4 I dont have enough storage:Yes you do,but you h ave clutter taking over its space. Let go of the clutter and you wont have to spend money on those storage units. By only havingt hings around you that you love and use; your clutter will have to find a new home. That will release the space for the things you love. 5. I dont get enough r espect. Do you want to know why; Because you d ont respect yourself first. You dont need outside admiration when you value yourself. You have to showa little to get a little. This g oes even farther than this. The more you give the more you will get. Give it to yourself and reap what you sow. 6 I cant dress well because I dont have e nough nice clothes. This goes back to the respect issue. You dont have to have fancy clothes to feel good and pretty in what you h ave. A clean pair of jeans and a bright colored shirt a nd make you feel like a million bucks if you will take the time to dress eachm orning. Once you quit wasting money and feel that y ou are worth it,you will get yourself one new outfit and a decent pair of lace-ups hoes. You can save for them. 7. I dont have enough e nergy; Enough energy for what. To run a marathon? T hat is not what I am asking you to do. All I want is for you to start with a simple morning babystep routine and evening routine andt o declutter 15 minutes a day. 8. I dont have enough love; Well for once you may be right about this one. You dont have enough self love. If I can teach you to FLY;F inally LoveYourself,then your home and life come t ogether.

C M Y K LIVING B12 PA GE News-Sun Wednesday, March 27, 2013 P anino is the Italian word for sandwich. In the USA and UK,the word p anini has been adopted to refer to a pressed sandwich. The panini has become very popular these days andt here are many different ways to prepare them. I think the key to a good panini is the bread. You need to have hearty type breads that will crisp up on the outside and stay soft in the inside. My favorite type of bread to use is ciabatta,which isa crusty Italian white bread. After you have decided on your bread,then it is u p to your imagination to create your own panini. It is easy to make them at home,all y ou need is a grill press,which can be found at a department store. Those grill p resses are a great tool to have in your kitchen because they can be used for so many different recipes,they reduce fat l evels in foods and they are very easy to clean. I have a panini recipe for you that I really enjoy making. It is a turkey,brie and apple panini with cranberry sauce.I t is a simple recipe that is also quick and easy to make. I hope you enjoy. Until next week ... cheers,Chef.Turkey, brie and apple panini1 /2 cup Whole cranberry sauce 2-2/3 tbs. finely chopped walnut h alves and pieces 1-1/3 tbs. whole grain mustard 6 ounce thinly sliced turkey breast 1 Granny Smith apple 4 oz. brie4 five-grain flax flatbread 1 cup fresh arugula lettuce In a food processor,blitz the ingredients together until just combined. Bec areful not to make the sauce too smooth,should still be slightly chunky. Set aside for assembly. On a slicer,slice the turkey thin. Set aside for assembly,store at 40 degrees. Leave the apples unpeeled. Working around the core,thin slice the apples. Discard the cores and hold for assembly. If not using the apples right away, toss in a touch of lemon juice to prevent discoloring. Ideally apples should be sliced close to assembly. On a parchment-lined sheet pan, arrange the flatbreads. On each half spread 1 tablespoon of the prepared cranberry chutney.Top with 1.5 oz. (2 slices) of the sliced turkey.Top with 1/4 cup (1/4 apple1 oz. brie cheese,1/4 cup arugula and fold over top. Prepare for cooking instructions. Place the prepared sandwiches on a preheated Panini press or flat top topped with a steak weight. Or follow the preparation for the oven method. For the oven method:Preheat an oven to 375 F.Top the sheeted sandwiches with another piece of parchment paper followed by another sheet pan with a oven proof weight on top (ie. cast iron, heavy pot,heavy pan,etc.) Cook for 5-7 minutes until bread is slightly crisp and cheese is melted. Remove from the oven,cut in half and serve immediately.Cranberry sauce6 1/2 oz. cranberries 1/3 cup Motts 100 percent apple juice 1-3/4 tbs. raisins 1-1/3 tbs. granulated sugar 1/8 tsp. kosher salt 1/3 tsp. fresh peeled,grated lemon Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan.
