C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRING Conditions in the Humane Society of H ighlands Countys dog and cat facilities are horrific,its president Judy Spiegel stated flatly. They are falling down. L iterally,she said. Because of the urgency,the s ociety has already contracted for plans of a new facility. Once the plans are ready,thes ociety will seek construction bids. Spiegel said until the b ids are received there is no way of knowing exactly what the cost will be,but it may bei n much more than $100,000. The Humane Society here in Highlands County i s not associated with the national Humane organizat ion and receives no funding from it. The society exists entirely on donations. It knows,however,that in difficult financial times manyi ndividuals,families,and businesses do not have spare funds to share. Which is why it has created two of the countys fun events The Halloween Trail andS aturdays Flash Light Egg Hunt.

Highlands County Tax Collector Eric Zwayer confirmed that he now is looking at taking on that task.

City residents now recycle approximately 42 tons of material per month,Deleon said. That is slightly more than 18 percent of the total garbage collection weight. Based on this preliminary review,staff found that each customer class for residential customer versus commercial customer is appropriately paying their equitable share to fund the citys solid waste collection system,Deleon said. The city does have the highest residential rate in the county,Deleon added,even though the monthly fee was reduced from $20 to $18 in 2011-2012,and staff is recommending another reduction to $16 in 2013-2014. Sebring charges $12.75 per month; Lake Placid $15; and the county $10.83 Commercial Dumpster rates,on the other hand,are the lowest in the county ranging from $78 to $329 depending on volume. In Sebring,the rates range from $113 to $450; in Lake Placid from $110 to $440. Deleon said the solid waste sanitation budget is in good shape,with an unaudited reserve of $1.6 million. This means,he told council, the city can buy a needed front-end loader commercial truck for cash,eliminating Avon Park residents recycle 42 tons of material per monthIts good to be green See EGG,A7 S ee COUNCIL,page A5 See TAX,A7 See AP,A5

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunSEBRING The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute recently announced the graduation of 34 first-line supervisors from the Florida Leadership Academy. This seminar was held over four months,one week at a time, at the Cape Coral Police Department with the goal to prepare supervisors in criminal justice organizations for leadership with the exemplary character and integrity. H ighlands County Sheriffs Sergeants Mike Delaney and Chris Myers participated in t he program and graduated with the class on April 12. Delaney is a member of the Uniform Patrol Division and Myers supervises school resource deputies. Since the beginning of the Leadership Academy,SheriffS usan Benton has ensured that every sergeant within the Highlands County Sheriffs Office attends this program. There are only a couple of the newest sergeants that have yet to complete the program.F ollowing the sworn supervisors,the sheriff plans to send all of the civilian supervisors. The Florida Criminal J ustice Executive Institute was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature tom eet the need for education and training of criminal justice professionals. Graduates of this most recent schoolr epresented 14 different criminal justice agencies from around the state. B enton applauded the serg eantsaccomplishments and praised the work of the Institute. Our front line supervisors are critical in accomplishing the office vision and mission. All members know who their immediate supervisor is andw ork according to those expectations. If our supervisors are not on the same page, adhere to policy and procedure,hold members account-a ble,while providing extraordinary leadership we will fail our community and the success of the individual mem-b er. I commend our latest graduates and praise all of our supervisors who have so diligently completed this course in service to our citi-z ens,she said.

We wish our colleagues in the national m edia particularly newscasters on cable news shows had behaved with the same sense of community service. Instead,tele-v ised media coverage was disappointing, even reckless at times. It made our head hurt watching the endless speculation by newscasters who did little more than gossip on air. The saturation coverage meant rumors overwhelmed the facts int he rush to tell the story,and those rumors were repeated over and over again in the 24hour news cycle the news networks now have to fill. Too many reporters from all media were o verly impatient. They relentlessly pressed officials for answers long before anything specific could be verified. Reports were continuously filled with words like maybe, possiblyand if. Too many times,it seemed as though newsc asters were simply looking at a Twitter or Facebook feed,reading what people had p osted,and then passing it off as fact with no verification. Its bad enough when the public does that which happens entirely too often. Those who call themselves journalists,however, should hold themselves to a higher standard. Of course,there were individual journalists who behaved professionally,doing their job with care,but overall newscasters and theirp roducers failed the public. CNNs Wolf Blitzer,for one,repeatedly warned against speculating and proceeded to blatantly speculate. Think of the early,and false,over-confid ent reports that a man was in custody and had confessed. That story was based on unconfirmed unnamed sources. As a news organization,the News-Sun is ashamed by our colleaguesperformances. Not only did the press fail the people,inm any ways,they made the situation worse, while ignoring other significant national and w orld events. It is in times of emergency that accurate reports are essential,as is a calm voice. Then ational media for the most part failed in both regards. I listened to a Frank Sinatra t une this week The House I Live In and enjoyed a renewed desire to fight on. S inatra performed the patriotic song in an 11-minute m ovie short that was made in 1945,shortly after the conclusion of the war. I n the short,Sinatra steps out of a recording studio into an alley,where he confronts a group of kids chasing a smaller boy. He learns that thes maller boy was being picked on by the others because of his religion. Sinatra explains to the kids that it is un-American to dwello n what makes us different. Rather,we must celebrate the m any unique characteristics we have in common thec haracteristics that make us very strong as a nation. To illustrate his point, Sinatra sings The House I Live In: What is America to me? A name,a map,or a flag I see. A certain word, democracy. What is America to me? More than just a democracy,America is a representative republic. It was designed to put the power in the peoples hands people like Sinatras Italian-born father,who understood how lucky he was to be American when,for many years,his birth country had been run by the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. The howdy and the handshake, The air and feeling free. And the right to speak my mind out, ThatsAmerica to me. The howdy and the handshake speak of a civility and friendliness that we are losing in modern America. Our government has expanded considerably and the sense of feeling free is not so great as it once was. Though people are still able to speak their minds, they run the risk of coming under assault for the ideas they speak. Take Dr. Ben Carson,a renowned neurosurgeon who had been director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital for 36 years. His commonsense thoughts on the highly charged issues of the day so agitate some on the left that he was recently forced out as commencement speaker at the university his work made famous. The things I see about me, The big things and the small. The little corner newsstand, A nd the house a mile tall. Its hard to imagine now, b ut envy had never been a big part of the American spirit. A merica was a place people came to rise on their own merits. Most of our early immig rants were too proud to take handouts all they wanted was the opportunity to work and prosper and make a better life for their children. S inatras father couldnt read or write. He became a fireman and eventually a pub owner and lived a good life. But look at the remarkable lifeh is son went on to live a life and career that could be p ossible only in America. T he words of old Abe Lincoln, Of Jefferson and Paine. Of Washington and Jackson, A nd the tasks that still remain. The American Constitution wenti nto effect on March 4,1789 156 years before Sinatra recorded The House I Live In. Most Americans were still very much aware of the unique ideals upon which the country was founded most realized that, despite Americas many imperfections that still needed to be worked out,it was a blessing to be an American citizen. It was a blessing to have God-given rights to life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In 2013,I dare say,most Americans have little understanding of the ideas and principles that make our country exceptional,and far too many are eager to give up our freedoms in exchange for the promise of free government stuff. A house that we call freedom, A home of liberty. And it belongs to fighting people, ThatsAmerica to me. Thats America to me,too. And we better fight harder if we hope to maintain the principles and blessings that have made our country great.

Thats America to me ... and Frank Guest Column Tom Purcell Public deserves an apology from the press If there was good news comi ng out of the bombing of the Boston Marathon,it was how quickly the alleged bombers were identified and caught. OversightEditor: Is there really any oversight being done in the Highlands County government and its bureaucratic committees? I dont think so. The Tourist Development Council has 14 people overseeing the process, and it appears none of them knew for years how much money was being spent on designated areas by the voting public. The state intervened and the audit proved it to be correct,no one knew. Really great accounting and they got top pay also. Now they want to just change everything to make it appear they are OK. The Kenilworth storage building purchased by the county went unused for almost four years before someone let them know it was just a shell of a building. One commissioner was quoted that they were advised the building ready to use. I believe it was a cover up for paying way too much for the building. But still there was no oversight on it being used as it was purchased for. The asphalt plant that was supposed to pay for itself,plus even make the county a profit certainly appeared to have little or no oversight. They had to borrow money because the methane gas was not able to be used. That was kept quiet for some time,until the cost became out of control. Fuel was being stolen or just plain missing because the key security was so lax,it was discovered the locks were not even locked. Seems that no one knew just who had keys and who did not. People were taking long,long lunch breaks and reporting standard times on the pay sheet. Certain ones working on others vehicles on county property and time and getting overtime to do the county work they were supposed to do.

But it has all settled down now and is running fairly smoothly,he said. Z wayers office also now is handling the dispersal of birth certificates,which makes the drivers license dispensing a more one-stopo peration. He said his goal is to begin collecting the tourist taxb eginning at the start of the 2014 calendar year. I have been in touch with t ax collectors in other counties that do it,Zwayer said. Each of them does it a bit differently. After conducting prelimin ary research,Zwayer commenced setting up prelimin ary timelines,establishing the process,auditing and enforcement elements in an effort to set up a methodology that makes sense both int erms of costs and in terms of service. At 3 percent of the total, we are only looking at about $9,000 a year to the tax col-l ectors office. That is based on the Tourist Development C ommissions current figures,he said. However,with local e nforcement,Zwayer believes that the collection could increase when all who those who should be paying the tax are assessedf or it. It wont be a money generator for the county but it could be self-sustaining and it would be good for the county as a whole,he said. Zwayer contended that by m aking certain of compliance that all entities that should be collecting an remitting the two percent assessment,it would create a level playingf ieldbetween competitors. In other words,people who are collecting the tax wont be competing with those who are not,he said. T here has been discussion about raising the assessment on all lodging for those in the c ounty for six months or less. The increase from 2 to 3 perc ent could generate an extra $150,000 per year if current tourist numbers remains trong. However,some citizens have called the motion by Avon Park city councilm an Terry Heston into question asking if his suggest ion to raise the tax reflects the opinion of the sitting council,or was just an idea Heston had independently, He is supposed to represent the city council as the voting member from Avon Park isnt he?asked former Avon Park Mayor TomM acklin. I have not seen anywhere that this came before the council and they either voted on it or gave their approval by consensus. H owever,when the question was put before council, Avon Park attorney Gerald Buhr said once appointed, Heston could make motionsa nd voted as he wished. Buhr said if the council had a problem with his votes or actions,t hey could replace him on the Tourist Development Council with somebody else. T he tourist tax discussion was to have come up before t he Highlands County Board of County Commission for a discussion this past Tuesdayn ight. However,that was called off after recommendat ions by the Tourist Development Commission were deemed to be incomplete. While the TDC board i ncluded a recommendation to raise the tax as well as a n ew schedule on how to spend the money,they neglected to say how theyi ntended to disperse money already collected in the TDC c offers. Because the Highlands County commissions night m eeting had been dedicated to a discussion on the recommendations,it was called off on the strength of the shortfall. There is no indication onw hen that issue will next be brought before county commissioners.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com B ABSON PARK Dark clouds and cool, intermittent rains delayed the start of Mondays District 10-4AT ournament opener. But the skies soon c leared to reveal a setting sun along the shores of C rooked Lake at the Webber International U niversity baseball field as Avon Park moved along with a 15-3, mercyrule win over Mulberry. Having swept the Panthers during the regular season, by 9-5 and 17-5 scores, there was the danger of the Devils taking the game too lightly and get caught in the old adage of not being able to beat a team three times in a row. Something head coach Whit Cornell was all too wary of. ou never know, this is high school baseball and anything can happen on a given night, he said in the moments leading up to the contest. We just need to throw strikes, not give them extra base runners and we need to put the ball in play And his words almost seemed startlingly prophetic as an error in the top of the first paved the way for the Panthers to open the scoring and take a 1-0 lead on a Dustin Caldwell RBI single. But the Devils answered right back in the bottom of the first when Tyrone Perry lead things off with a double to deep right field and would come in on a Josh Gomez single through the left side to tie it up. The defense held behind the pitching of Colton Brock in the second and the offense got back to it, plating three runs in the bottom of the inning to begin stretching the lead out. Mulberry did scratch for two in the top of the third, with Caldwell adding both to his RBI total on the SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, April 24, 2013 N ASCAR This WeekB4 Courtesy photo Stan Nork, a member of the Slow Pitch Softball Hall of Fame, and his wife Cindy were featured guests on Ed Lynchs Sports Talk show on Saturday, April 20.

With her on her big day were dad Scott with niece Kensley, sister Taryn, mom Brenda, Blue Streak head coach Joe Sinness and assistant Larry Johnson. B y DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Ability, passion and dedication for the game of softball has paid off for Sebring senior Tayla DaSilva in offering her a college education. She took Miami-Dade College up on their offerF riday, April 19, when she s igned to join the Lady Sharks. I had offers from Thomas University and Hillsborough, DaSilva said. And then last summer I was at a Rising Stars tournament in Miami. Dad watched me f or a game and made an offer right after While mulling her choices, it really wasnt too difficult for the solid-hitting infielder to see the benefits of opting for Dade. They have such a strong softball program, she said. Theyre currently third in state and ninth in the nation. They also have a very, very good academic program. A nd of course, there were a couple of other benefits that factored in. s close to the beach and the food around there is amazing, she explained. And though those are certainly important factors for a soon-to-be college freshman, t hey go only so far with DaSilva. Im there for one reason and one reason only, to get my education and pursue my dreams as a college athlete, she said. I will need to continue to get stronger and improve my mentality and physical play to compete at the college level. It has always been my dream and as long as I say positive and work as hard as I can, I do not doubt being able to do it. That sort of steely-eyed determination seems quite befitting for this new Shark. That determination extends into the classroom as well, as DaSilva plans on getting her AAdegree and continuing DaSilva decides on Dade See DASILVA, Page B3 By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated PressPASADENA, Calif. With the how and when of college football playoffs determined, its time to lock in the where. The conference commiss ioners in charge of putting together the four-team playoff system that will start after the 2014 regular season will meet starting Tuesday in Pasadena, Calif. At the top of their agenda: Pick three more bowls to be u sed in the semifinal rotation and decide on a site for the first national championship game. The Rose, Sugar and Orange bowls are already part of the six-bowl semifinal r otation. It will be another big step, BCS executive director Bill Hancock said recently. True, though all signs point toward these big steps being foregone conclusions. The Fiesta, Cotton and C hick-fil-Abowls are the overwhelming favorites to be chosen for the playoff rotation, and have been for a while. So much so that only one other bowl the Holiday Bowl in San Diego even put in a bid to be part of the system that will replace the Bowl Championship Series. I was a little surprised we didnt get more, Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said. Hancock said there was plenty of interest even though it didnt result in bids. I talked to 10 or 12 bowls about it, he said. I think for various reasons people decided, many of the bowls deci ded, theyd rather go in a dif-f erent direction. Some wanted to stick with their conference contracts, others couldnt meet specsf or 55,000 seat stadiums. ere not disappointed w ith the numbers. We have good options and there are t errific stadiums. Bowlsby conceded the a ppearance of three bowls having the inside track to the playoff rotation might have deterred others from bidding. Even Holiday Bowl organizers acknowledge they are a big underdog. e know its a tough competition, Holiday Bowl executive director Bruce Binkowski said. But we felt it was incumbent upon us to make a bid. s tough to beat out the incumbents. As for the site of the first national championship game, which will be played Jan. 12, 2015, the front-runner is Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of not only the Dallas Cowboys but the Cotton Bowl. Its not quite a done deal. Tampa also put in a bid that is being considered. But itll be hard to pass up playing the first national title game of the playoff era in the Dallas Cowboysstate-ofthe-art football palace. ere anxiously awaiting their decision and hope that, if given the opportunity, want to make that, want the venue to be appropriate to the first college championship under the new system, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said.

Despite persevering and putting forth great efforts after the long drive up to the northeast corner of the state, only one, Dalton Shelton, made the move forward to the State Finals this Saturday and a return trip to Jacksonville. Opting to compete in just one event, the longdistance standout ran the 3,200-meter run at regionals, and did incredibly well setting a newpersonal record and becoming the Regional Champion with a timeof 9:54:59. This will be Sheltons second appearance at the FHSAAState Finals, as he made it to the Cross Country State Finals his sophomore year. It really helped that I am only running in the two mile this year, not both the mile and two mile. Shelton stated. Focusing on only the two mile this year certainly was a successful tactic. I am shooting for first at state, he explained, before adding with a chuckle. If youre not first, youre last! He is right there in the running to be top in the state, head coach Scott Morgan stated.

Ive seen too many people make mistakes by trying to be cutesy Also on the agenda will be the selection committee that will pick the final four. The commissioners want a panel similar to the one that picks the field for the NCAAbasketball tournament, composed of athletic directors and conferencec ommissioners. They have also talked about having a former media member or two on the committee. T hat wont be finished this week, but Hanco ck hopes when the commissioners leave southern California, the selection committee will be the only major part of the new postseason plan still hanging.

Three more were added by the Devils in the bottom of the frame, pushing it to 7-3, before the bats exploded in the fourth for eight runs to put this one away. The win moved Avon Park to the tournament semifinal Tuesday against the top seeded DeSoto Bulldogs, who have beaten the Devils twice this season. B ack on March 5, starting pitcher Donovan Day stymied the Avon Park bats, allowing just two hits and striking out nine at DeSoto. One month later, on Friday, April 5, Garrett Anderson was nearly as effective, allowing four hits and striking out eight in a 7-2 Bulldog win at Head Field.

B y AARON BEARD Associated PressT he Atlantic Coast C onference will retain the media rights of any school that chooses to leave the conference before 2027, essentially locking its schools into the league through the length of its current television deal. The league said Monday that presidents of 15 current and soon-to-be member schools have agreed to and signed the deal, which is effective immediately and could slam the brakes on years of realignment around college athletics. In my opinion, any potential realignment of the Atlantic Coast Conference ended with this vote, Miami athletic director Blake James said. Today was a great day for the league and for all the members of the league. The decision applies to eventual new arrivals Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Notre Dame and Louisville. Maryland, who has announced plans to leave for the Big Ten in 2014, wasnt included. Awarding control of those TVrights and, more importantly, the money that comes with them to the league means that a school would have to leave its TV rights behind if it chose to go elsewhere. Those rights would stay with the ACC, meaning the departing school wouldnt bring any added TVvalue to a new leagues broadcast package and make it a lessdesirable target for realignment purposes. In short, if a school left, the ACC would still get the money that school generated through its television package, James said. The ACC gets that money, James said. What weve done is everyone has given their rights to the conference outlets, for all media outlets, until 2027. Virtually you end any type of realignment involving the ACC, is how I look at it. A t the very least, the league has erected a taller f ence to protect itself in the e vent of another wave of change. The ACC is the fourth major conference to approvea grant of TVrights, joining the Big 12, Big Ten and Pac12. The Big 12 made a similar move last year after the departures of Texas A&M, Missouri, Nebraska and Colorado. It was widely regarded as a way to provide long-term stability to the 10-team league. This announcement further highlights the continued solidarity and commitment by our member institutions, ACC commissioner John Swofford said in a statement. The Council of Presidents has shown tremendous leadership in insuring the ACC is extremely well-positioned with unlimited potential. The move, first reported by The ACC Sports Journal, would be a promising sign of stability for the ACC, which had been besieged by rumors that some of its highest-profile members might consider following Maryland out the door and jumping leagues. I would describe it as a great strategic move by the league and its members to solidify our future, James said. While its existing TVdeal with ESPN runs through the 2026-27 season, the sides are updating that agreement due to expansion and the league is researching the creation of an ACC TVchannel. Duke mens basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski said the decision secures the ACCs future, and thus Dukes, for years to come. It is one of the great days in the history of our conference as it shows the highest level of commitment not by words, but by actions, Krzyzewski said in a statement. Bubba Cunningham, the athletic director at North Carolina, said the grant of rights should put (conference) realignment on the s helf. These are strong and d efinitive moves by the ACC and its member schools to f urther announce our desire to stay together and position ourselves among the top conferences in the country Cunningham said in a statement. We look forward to continued talks with the ACC and ESPN on how to best strengthen and position our multi-media package. The league will add Pittsburgh and Syracuse in all sports this summer, while Notre Dame will join in all league sports except football. Louisville will replace Maryland in 2014. The added resources coming to the ACC schools will have a significant impact on the success of our athletic programs, Florida State president Eric J. Barron said in a statement. We are also very pleased that we will be moving forward on the next phase of developing an ACC network. The vote of the ACC presidents will ensure that the conference will strengthen its position of leadership among Division I athletics. The league had also twice raised its exit fee during recent waves of realignment, first to $20 million in September 2011 when it announced the additions of Pitt and Syracuse from the Big East. Ayear later, when the league said it would add Notre Dame, the league said it had increased the fees to three times the leagues annual operation budget which amounted to more than $52.2 million when Maryland announced two months later that it planned to leave. The ACC is currently suing Maryland for payment of that exit fee. AP Sports Writer Joedy McCreary in Raleigh, N.C., and Tim Reynolds in Miami contributed to this report.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Sebring VFW.Post 4300 has long been serving the veterans needs and giving to the community,but thanks to the staff at Home Deport Sebring they have a new paint job as well. This year when the Post went non smoking so all the members could enjoy Post 4300 on Lake Jackson it left a big problem for the Post to clean up the nicotine left behind. The VFWs first priority is its veterans and the programs of giving,which leaves little money for improvement. The clean up on nicotine and a paint job was an expense the Post was not prepared for. True to the nature of Home Depot, they look out for the veterans all year with the 10 percent discount on sales to veterans as their way of saying thanks for the sacrifices as a military person. When they heard the Post needed help they jumped right in. Happy to hear the Post had gone non-smoking and knowing what a difference a good paint job would mean,Assistant Manager Ruth Knox set to work to make it happen. Knox secured 16 gallons of paint as a donation from Home Depot and went even further by bringing along herself and Patti Willis,J.D. Baxter,Johnathan Adams,Robbie Rack and Pattis husband,Billy Wernersbach,to help. In just one day,the Home Depot crew, along with Darlene and DaveWatkin, first vice Mike Norris,Gloria Williams, and Annie and Bob Ulmer,worked together to give a three-color facelift to the whole lounge and dance area. Chairman Darlene Watkin said,It is just incredible that this wonderful chain and its employees believe in giving back to the community they do business in and especially helping fill the needs of a wonderful veterans organization such as the VFW. Working as good neighbors in any community makes that community strong. S pecial to the News-SunAVON PARK The Avon P ark Founders Garden Club held its April meeting at the home of Martha Williams.

On May 4,Sebring Sunrise Rotary Club,in partnership with the other sixo ther Highlands County Rotary clubs and the Hardee C ounty club,is sending 37 veterans and their guardians to Washington D.C. to visit their World War II memorial. The veterans will departf rom the Agri-Civic Center on George Boulevard around 4:45 a.m. to Fort Myers where they will board a plane for Washington,r eturning late that same evening.

For the rum world,its a more serious question than it sounds,and the answer exposes a schism in the industry,a divideb etween massive producers who value uniformity in a global market and smaller players and connoisseurs who prefer nuanced production that reflects the time and place a rum is made. A walk down the rum aisle of a liquor store sees this played out. While major companies like Pernod Ricard might acknowledge that its Malibu is a Carribean rumand has notes of coconut flavor,youw ont find specifics beyond that. Likewise, Diageos Captain Morgan doesnt indicate which island port its jaunty pirate logo callsh ome. Thats because the largest liquor companies have realized its not critical to pro-m ote their rumsorigins in their global branding,says Arun Sharma,professor of m arketing at the University of Miami School of Business Administration. That allows them flexibility to produce their spir-i ts where they need to meet demand on the mass market. The brand is more important than where its produced,Sharma said. At Bacardi,which sells more than 18 million cases of rum worldwide each year,consistency and quality are paramount,even asi t expands its offerings of flavored,spiced and premium rums. Our marketing approach and advertising hasnt really focused on the Caribbean. ...I s a lifestyle. Its a way of life,said B acardi brand master David Cid. Except that rums can vary greatly based on where and how they are produced,some-t hing aficionados have long known and smaller producers have begun promoting as a way to distinguish themselves. Cuba and Puerto Rico have lighter,more delicate rums; Jamaica veers to the full-bodied,d arker liquors; and Haiti is known for the cognac-like flavor of its Rhum Barbancourt. Blue Chair Bay Rum,which country music star Kenny Chesney is launchingt his spring,is a good example. Chesney chose a distiller in Barbados specifically to infuse the spiritw ith an authenticity he sought to represent his love for the islandl ifestyle,says CEO Mark Montgomery. And as rum sales g row,you can expect to see more of that. F ueled by a cocktail revival on the food scene as well asp rominent billing on TV shows like Mad Men liquors capt ured more than a third of the alcoholic beverage market last year,including sales of 25.5 million cases of rum in the U.S. alone,a 2.5 percent jump over the year before. Flavored and spiced rums account for moret han half of that total. Every island in the Caribbean,every c ountry in Central and South America makes the best rum in the world.Theres a lot of pride in rum,says Robert A. Burr,o rganizer of the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival that opens to industry professionals and the public this weekend. Every country has some sort of different history,equipment,preference. But noww re in much more of a global world where its easier to try other peoples rum. Of course,that information isnt always obvious. Rum can be tricky for drinkers to figure out because it can be produced any-w here,unlike Scotch whisky that by definition comes from in Scotland,says Bernhard Schafer,a professional spirits judge participating in the Miami rum festival. At a pre-festival tasting this week,rums f rom Ireland,Colorado,the Philippines, Florida and New Zealand mingled with offerings from Barbados,St. Barths andP anama. Aside from noting the country of origin,none of the labels referenced theC aribbean. And the rum from Panama called R on de Jeremy,a play on the Spanish word for rum had a different associat ion in mind ... A portrait of adult film star Ron J eremy is on the label. The growing variety of rums in the marketplace should assuage the fears of anyone whos beena voiding rum since,perhaps,an ill-advised bend er in college,said Rob V. Burr,a self-described rum evangelistand the son of the festivals organizer. I always like to tell people,theres a rum for that. Rum plays up and ignores its Caribbean roots MCT photo Rum usually calls to mind images like Cadet Biene draininga barrel of Barbancourt Rumi nto a bucket outside P ort-au-Prince, H aiti. But a lot of rum, such as R ichland (far right i s produced outside t he Caribbean in places like Georgia.

She continued:Maybe thats because I am. Three cheers for bossy women!T he crowd roared. Of course,the crowd which included the singersf riends,Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton,was roaring at pretty much anythingc onnected to her all evening, as the legend of song and s creen was honored for her film career with the 40th annual Chaplin Award fromt he Film Society of Lincoln Center. T he Streisand fans especially loved the film highlights,which covered everything from Funny Girland The Way We WeretoTheO wl and the Pussycat, Whats Up,Doc?and Meet the Fockers. And then there was entl the firstH ollywood movie to be directed,produced,written a nd starred in by a woman, as the crowd was reminded. Streisand spoke of how h ard it was to get funding to make the film. Producers,it seemed,werent as passion-a te as she was about the tale of a Jewish girl in Eastern E urope who so longed to study the Talmud that she disguised herself as a boy. Itw as only when Streisand agreed to turn the movie into a musical and most importantly,sing in it herself that she was able to go ahead with the project. s funny how things a lways come back to music, she said. How it saves me. S treisand,who turns 71 this week,is one of the few entertainers to have wonO scar,Emmy,Grammy and Tony awards. Although she i s perhaps most loved for her beautiful singing voice,she told the audience that as a young child,what she wanted most was to be an actress.B ut nobody really wanted a 15-year-old Medea,she noted. Thank God I was given a good voice,she said,explaining how hers inging opened the doors to acting. For the awards gala,which raised $2 million for the film society twice the previoush igh amount for the annual event Streisand was serenaded by Wynton Marsaliso n trumpet,by Liza Minnelli,and by Tony Bennett,who closed thes how with the song,Smile, fittingly a Charlie Chaplin s ong. Also appearing onstage to praise their friend and colleague were MichaelD ouglas,Catherine Deneuve (last years honoree),Amy I rving,Blythe Danner, George Segal,Ben Stiller, Pierce Brosnan and Kris Kristofferson. It was Bill Clinton, t hough,who got the last word before Streisand, t hat is praising the singer as driven,in the best way. Every great person is d riven,the former president said. But if that person has m assive talent,big brains and a bigger heart,you want to go along for the ride.Entertainment Streisand feted by Clinton, Minnelli and friends B ill Clinton former presidentE very great person i s driven.

Dear Abby: My son is a tall,strikingly handsome teenager,although somewhat shy. Our problem is that his looks attract the wrong kind of attention from aggressive girls,and it's getting worse every year. He and his 14-year-old sister went out to eat after school yesterday,and when they returned it was obvious my son was upset and his sister was furious. She said a group of college girls at a table next to them were teasing and taunting my son with blatantly sexual propositions. They went so far as to touch him suggestively as they got up to leave. Im sure they got the physical response from him they wanted; he is only 17, after all. But he was clearly angry,embarrassed and ashamed. He said he felt trapped and didnt know what to do. The sexual harassment of young men is often laughed off with a wink and a nudge, but it isnt funny. It can be as painful and damaging to men as to women. Furthermore,my son is a minor,and I suspect the college girls were adults,if the beer on the table was any indication. I am trying to raise my son to respect women and to be a decent man,husband and father someday,but frankly,I'm at a loss as to how to help him handle this type of sexual aggressiveness from girls. Do you or any of your readers have any suggestions? Shocked Mom in Tennessee Dear Mom: I can see why your son and daughter were upset. He was not only sexually harassed by those young women,but when they put their hands on him,he was assaulted. When the teasing escalated,he and his sister should have changed tables or left the restaurant. If your sons father is in the picture,he should discuss the incident with your son. If thats not possible, another adult male should help him understand that his arousal was normal and nothing to be ashamed of. I am sure my male readers will also want to weigh in on your letter because what happened to your son was outrageous. Dear Abby: I recently bought a used car for myself. It is exotic,and my wife and I really like it. Shes upset with me,however,because I wont let her drive it unless Im in the car. I bought it with the intent for us to enjoy it,but I am also concerned with keeping it in good shape. Because my wife is unhappy,I am undecided about whether to keep the car and stick to my guns,or sell it and live life simply and unfettered. We share everything,but the car is one thing that needs careful attention. Can you give me some advice? Doesnt Want it Dented in Rancho Cordova,Calif. Dear Doesnt Want it Dented: Lets be honest. On one hand,you say you bought the car for yourself, and on the other,you say you bought it for both of you to enjoy.You cant have it both ways,so which is it? I think the time has come to confess to your wife that even though you said the car was for both of you,its really your baby. Then make it up to her by buying her that special something she has always wished for.

NEWS-SUN-6155 Associated PressLOS ANGELES Its a Super Bowl matchup for thea ges:cats vs. dogs. The Puppy Bowl,a fixture on Animal Planet during the Super Bowl for nearly a decade,will have new com-p etition next year from the Kitten Bowl,the Hallmark Channel announced this month. e would like to own the day,said Bill Abbott,president and CEO of Crown Media Family Networks, which is home to the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel. Copycats,chided Animal Planet in a statement. Win or lose in the ratings, all the animals stand to benefit. Hallmark will useb etween 50 and 100 kittens from animal shelters around the country,and Abbott vowed to place each one in a home. Animal Planet placed every dog and cat on this years show 63 puppies and 21 kittens. (Cats serve as halftime entertainment for the two-hour Puppy Bowl.) The annual Puppy Bowl has a football theme,with the dogs scoring touchdownsif they cross a goal line with a chew toy. Kittens in the Kitten Bowl w ill compete on an agility course set up with hurdles, scratchers,tunnels,hoops and weave poles. Laser pointers and toys on strings will be used to entice the kittens. Judges will look at each kittens ability to cuddle and win the hearts of viewers. The show is part of Hallmarks Pet Project Initiative and will be done with a partner,the American Humane Association. Is the showdown between puppies and kitties on differ-e nt cable channels likely to answer the age-old question about which one is the most popular? Well,there are cat people a nd there are dog people. And then there are people like Ana Bustilloz at the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles. This year,a record 12.4 million people watched during the 12-hour Puppy Bowl X broadcast. By comparison, the Super Bowl was watched by 108.4 million people to become the third most watched show in TV history.

C M Y K t was 50 years ago when then 20-year-old Barbra Streisand hit the charts for the first time with what was aptly named The Barbra Streisand Album.Half a century later,the multifaceted star has become an icon,a testament to the power of chutzpah,candor and commitment. Mix passion,boldness and originality with a dash of perfectionism and a hint of that quintessential Funny Girlspirit and you get Streisand,a singer/actress/ director/film-producer/writer and, above all,woman,whose achievements transcend time and the masses. Karen Mawdsley,McClatchy-Tribune Information Services 1 940s A Star Is Bor 1 942Streisands half-sister, Rosalind, is born. 1943Streisands father, a high school English teacher, dies and family falls onto h ard times Mother remarries Louis Kind 1952Attends Bais Yakov School in Brooklyn and sings in the school choir.

Her birth father died when she was 16 months old. Her mom said she was too thin. Her stepdad said she was ugly. Her mother wanted her to become a secretary to resist,she grew her fingernails long but the highly driven youngster wanted to become a singer. At 18,she won a talent contest at a Greenwich Village club, where she developed a gay following (and dropped the middle a from her name to make it more distinctive). The boys loved the young woman with the imperfect face,unloving family and throbbingly emotional voice. The buzz brought Broadway impresarios and songwriters such as Harold Arlen and Cole Porter to check her out. She signed with Columbia Records in 1962 and snared the Grammy for album of the year for her debut,The Barbra Streisand Album.A year later,at 21,she became an overnight sensation in the Broadway musical Funny Girl.It told the story of burlesque queen Fanny Brice,a comedienne with prominent Yiddish flavor in an era of ethnic humor. Right away,this role endeared Streisand,who never hid her religion,her ethnic nose or her Brooklyn accent,to Jewish people. Like the Beatles,she had an amazing run of success in the 1960s,releasing 13 albums in seven years,and being awarded a Tony as Broadway's star of the decade. She grabbed an Oscar in 1968 as best actress for her first film,Funny Girl.Star turns in the comedy The Owl and the Pussycatand the movie version of Hello Dollyfollowed. She also had top-rated TV specials including a '67 concert at Central Park where she developed her famous stage fright after forgetting the words to a few songs. In 1969 she got her feet wet in politics,performing at a rally/fundraiser for New York Mayor John Lindsay,a Republican seeking his second term. But she became a staunch supporter of the Democrats,starting with George McGovern's 1972 presidential bid and perhaps peaking as the most famous FOB (Friend of Bill Clinton) who stayed at the White House. She may have finally conquered her stage fright,but Streisand won't find it so easy to shake her reputation as a control freak. Call her meticulous or call her the B-word but she is known in Hollywood as a megalomaniac. Christopher Andersen's recent book Barbra:The Way She Is paints Streisand as fiercely insistent upon creative control over all her projects,often clashing with directors and fellow actors and demanding more close-up shots of herself. She was downright rude,an assistant director on Funny Girltold Andersen. Many of these iconic images of Streisand converged in the 1983 film Yentl,for which she became the first woman since the silent-movie era to write,direct,produce and star in a film. The reality check:How plausible was it for a 41-year-old to play a teen girl who dresses like a boy in order to study at a Jewish school? After 1996s The Mirror Has Two Faces her third and last picture as a director she took a pause from active filming,until returning to the silver screen as the sex therapist mother in Ben Stillers Fockersfilms (2004 and a sequel in 2010And this past fall she had a starring role in Guilt Trip,a mother/son road trip movie,co-starring Seth Rogen. As for that impossibly famous voice,since the late 1960s she has shied away from performing concerts,conducting only a few extended tours 1994,2006 and the current Barbra Live tour that started in the fall in North America and continues in Europe and the Middle East in June. Yes,she is a divs diva.
