But I was reading my f athers presidential dairies and there it was in his very first entry the issue of terrorism and how to fight it. O n Jan. 26, 1981, on his first Monday on the job, Ronald Reagan wrote that he called the FBI, the CIA and other intelligencea gencies into an Oval Office meeting to find bett er ways of sharing information with each other ont errorists. I read my fathers entry Tuesday, the same day Sen. Lindsey Graham was being told in a hearing that theD epartment of Homeland Security and the FBI had not shared what they knew about dead Boston Marathon bomberT amerlan Tsarnaev. Its too early to know the details of who knew what or when, or if the FBI or someone else fumbled the ball. So far it looks like what is to blame is a combination of bureaucracy and the complexities and legalities of compiling and monitoring terrorist watch lists. But weve already learned the FBI interviewed Tamerlan in 2011 after being told by Russian intelligence officials that he had recently changed into a strong believer in radical Islam and was suspected of joining underground groups in Russia. The FBI ultimately decided Tamerlan was nota terrorist threat and did not know he went to Russia. The DHS knew he went to Russia but apparently didnt know the FBI had checked him out. Havent we seen this tragic sitcom plot before? Wasnt the failure of the CIAand the FBI to share what they knew about the 9/11 terrorists one of the main reasons they were never caught? To share. Wasnt that the important kindergarten lesson our overlapping, turfwarring intelligence agencies were supposed to learn from 9/11? We thought the intelligence-sharing problem was going to be fixed after 9/11. My father thought the s ame thing after that big meeting in his office. But nothings changed after 32 years. N ot that our intelligence agenc ies could have stopped the Boston Marathonb ombers even if they had been s haring information the way they should. T o a large extent the Brothers Tsarnaev were under our anti-terrorist radar screens. We only knew what we knew about t hem beforehand because the Russians tipped us off. Its a pretty sad state of affairs when we have to rely on the Russians fori ntelligence about terrorists in our own backyards. W holl try to help us next time, the North Koreans? T here will be a next time. Everyone knows Boston was not a one-off. Other terror cells we dont know anything about yeta re living among us and theyre radicalized and trained to hurt us and they will. America has millions of soft targets. A t least the state and local police in Boston did a great job, finding and capturing the bombers in less than four days. But it was humiliating to watch a proud city be shut down and terrorized for more 24 hours, its people cowering and sheltering in place because of two punks with pistols and a couple of homemade pipe bombs. Paul Revere and his fellow patriots would have been ashamed to see so many Americans afraid to even go outdoors. Its doubtful, but maybe some of the die-hard liberals of Boston and the rest of the country learned a lesson from what played out so dramatically on their streets and our TVs. Two weeks ago everyone on TVwas talking or crying about the need for tougher gun control because of what happened at Newtown. Now, after Boston, everyone is talking about how we all need a gun at home to protect ourselves. Michael Reagan is the son of President Ronald Reagan, a political consultant and author.

Lessons learned in Boston If you want to change, you have to try to change and you have to stay dedicated, Marshall told the News-Sun recently. If you dont, its j ust not going to work. O ur point is that people like Marshall are in a minorit y. Changing ones lifestyle can only be done one way breaking old habits and learning to see the world from a d ifferent, more positive perspective. The problem is, however, many people dont have the discipline to make such radical changes. Our concern is that while more people are enteringw eight loss programs and going to the gym, those indiv iduals who do not are i ncreasingly blamed for their own illnesses. A ccording to this world v iew, people who dont live a healthy lifestyle bring on their own troubles. I t was once inconceivable to think someone with a serious illness would ever be turned away from medical c are. Thanks in part to insura nce companies that seem to b e looking for any reason to deny health insurance coverage, an increasing number of p eople are denied coverage outright, or cannot afford the premiums. As a nation we appear to b elieve being overweight o r a drinker, or a smoker is a fault to be judged. According to this world view, a person who develops diabetes or lung cancer does it toh im or herself, and therefore deserves to be sick. This makes it easier to rationalize withholding treatment, especially if its expensive. A s a result, our national debate about public health issues is becoming divided between those who feel health care should be avail-a ble only to those who are healthy, and those who accept people are never perfect, but still deserve health care. W hen it comes to aging and illness there are no good g uys or bad guys. Everybody dies even those who eat fresh spinach and do push-u ps. The real question is when. Our congratulations to Eric Marshall, who was named the biggest loser in the YMCAs Biggest Loser Challenge. Marshall lost 47 pounds, 20 percent of his total body fat and toned his muscles through an exercise regi-m en.

Which do you think the TDC is presenting to the county commission, a 2 percent or a 3 percent plan. So do they care what the voters think or want? And have you heard a reason as to why the 50 percent raise in the tax is needed? One of the council persons stated, he thought we should have the money, because everyone gets more than we get. It is reported in the Highlands County Tourist Development Balances FY2012/2013, as of Feb. 1, 2013, the available balance of the TDC Fund is $603,989.92, that is money they havent used. Arts and Culture has $191,276.82 in their fund that hasnt been used, except to help pay Mr. Scherlachers salary and benefits. They both say they need more money. In the 10 years the TDC has been operating, they have collected better than $3,000,000 and used $1,260,000 of it for administration that is 42 percent and not 29 percent as is in the 2002 plan (contractAnd what have they accomplished? So I ask, was the TDC created to see how much tax money they could collect or was it, to bring tourists to Highlands and do you think tourists will flock to Highlands just so they can pay a larger tax. Or do they come to enjoy the events and lakes we have here? That brings up another question. How many tourists has the TDC brought to Highlands? I sure would like for them to tell us how many, who and when. Or do they just let others spend their money to bring in the tourists, then reimburse them? Then take credit for the tourists who come. Remember in 2002 it was Summer Tourists Make Cents; well summer is coming up, lets see what they do.

B y BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Its the spring, and while many young mens fancy turns tob aseball, it also means the first of a pair of aerobatic competitions of the y ear will take to the skies above Sebring Regional Airport. This will be the spring meet of the I nternational Aerobatic Club, where dozens of competitors fly in for two d ays of competition for points and camaraderie. Although the event gets under way o fficially on Thursday, many of the competitors have been at the Sebring Regional Airport for nearly a week practicing up for the event. Pilots fly in one of five individual c ategories, beginning with the Primary division. There also are the Sportsman, Intermediate, Advanced and Unlimited classes. Aviators advance through the ranks through experience and perform-a nce. The pilots go out individually, flying routines including both known and unknown categories. The known flights are designed by each competitor,t hen flown to show their proficiency in a number of different maneuvers. T he unknown flights are a bit different. Pilots are given a number of different maneuvers that they must cobblet ogether into a routine within a certain amount of time. They then fly the rout ine to be reviewed by judges. Maneuvers include such well-known aerobatics as the barrel roll and the s tall turn, as well as lesser-known maneuvers such as the scissors and the Cuban eight. The IAC competitors come from all over the United States and abroad to flyi n the semi-annual meets. There are nearly three dozen different makes and models of aircraft that are eligible for the competition, but there are favorites for speed and han-d ling, including the Pitts Special and the Russian-built Sukhoi. Officially, the IAC meet is listed as a non-spectator event, however, those who wish to watch may see the com-p etitors fly from a grassy area by the airports main building. T he IAC is a division of the Experimental Aircraft Association and the National Aeronautics Association.N ot only does the organization promote aerobatics, it also governs the sport of c ompetition aerobatics. The organization was founded in 1970, evolving from of the EAAs Precision Flying Division to provide an organized method for advancing aerobatic skills via a building block competition system. It is responsible for pilot selection of A dvanced, Unlimited Power and Unlimited Glider Aerobatic Teams that represent the United States at World Aerobatic Championships events. IAC has grown to be the worlds largest aer-o batic organization.

Still, she found time to complete a 6,000piece puzzle recently. It took her about a year, working a little every evening. Completed, its 61-and-ahalf inches wide and 42-anda-half tall, large enough to take up the bulk of her dining table that sits six comfortably. There were times I thought I was crazy, she said laughing. My daughter helped me before she went back home. We got the outside edge together Her technique, she said, is based on separating colors and putting them in cutdown cardboard boxes. From there, it is looking at shapes. I think I could do it quicker now, but I dont know if Ill do it again, Chapman said, laughing once again. Her husband, Andy Chapman, comes in from the living room. Do you know how many pieces I put in? he asks. Not waiting for an answer, he says, Not a one, and looks fondly at his wife. The green part was bad, but the blue was even worse News-sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Despite volunteering for several clubs, Sebring resident Thelma Chapman still found time to put this 6,000 piece jig-saw puzzle together.

SFSC offered a support system where I could get one-on-one attention from faculty and advisers that were ready and willing to ease my transition between high school and college, Baker said. Everyone at SFSC is so genuine and helpful; Im not just a seat to fill in their classroom. Baker acknowledges that its difficult for people who grew up without disabilities to understand the constant stares and troubles she deals with on a daily basis. I havent always been the bright, cheerful, and optimistic person I am today, Baker said. Ive been through struggles and tribulations and had to overcome so much. Growing up, I was always singled out, picked on, and laughed at, Baker said. I hit rock bottom. I had no friends and a very low self-esteem. I want students to understand that we are all created equally and should be treated respectfully in the same matter Baker was unsure of what she wanted to pursue as a career in life. She was told she couldnt work in certain occupations due to the limitations from her arm. Until she attended SFSC and had the chance to talk to Michele DeVane, professor of education, she began to realize that education was her calling. DeVane helped Baker pursue opportunities in the education field by suggesting she take education classes, volunteer, and become a substitute teacher.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING The numbers were daunting as Sebring head coach Buck Rapp looked over the stats for the Mitchell Mustangs in his locker-room office Monday afternoon. A team batting average of .344, 17 team home runs and 68 stolen bases. T wo starting pitchers that average more than one strike out per inning and one batter, Marcus Begg, with a .451 average, seven home runs, 34 RBI, 35 runs scored and 15 stolen bases. Those pitchers would be C obi Johnson, who had 89 strike outs in 59 innings, with just nine walks and a 1.90 E RAon the season, along with Chris McCormack, who had 66 strike outs in 55.2 i nnings and an ERAof 2.26. But as impressive as the stats look, Rapp immediately recalled a similar moment from his playing days at the University of North Florida. e were playing the University of Indianapolis in the Division II College World Series and their stats were just ridiculous on paper, he said. Then we watched them in batting practice and they were knocking balls out of the park all over the place. But the thing is, stats only tell you so much and have to be taken with a grain of salt, Rapp continued. We beat them 9-0 the next day And as impressive as the stats are, Mitchell wasnt the top seed heading into its district tournament, having lost twice during the regular season to Land OLakes before topping them in the tournament title game. B ut however one may want to overlook, or discount, or not take too seriously, the Mustang stats, they do tell Rapp one thing. They are a good, solid baseball team, he said. They can hit and run the bases. We know theyreg oing to put pressure on us and well have to play Blue Streaks motivated for Mustangs B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, May 1, 2013 NASCAR This WeekPAGEB3 SPORTS C ourtesy photo by CALLIE MADDOX Garrett DeRoss gets the nod for Sebring tonight against a hard-hitting Mitchell squad in the Class 6A Regional Quarterfinals. News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Morgan Lott and the Green Dragons hope to keep their high-scoring winning streak going tonight against visiting Tampa Catholic as the state playoffs get underway. Let the games begin By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comOn the precipice of the first playoff appearance in seven years, Lake Placid is prepping for tonights contest against visiting Tampa Catholic. And while the challenge of the postseason is added to by the thought of the perennially strong Crusader squad, the Green Dragons are realizing where they stand, with the information and encouragement head coach Dan Coomes has been giving them. Coach has told us that Tampa Catholic is really no different than us, first baseman Morgan Lott said. They have about the same record, and if we play the type of ball weve been playing lately, and play to our ability, everything will turn out great. H ow theyve been playing lately has been fantastic, including eight straight wins and the 11-0 blowout of top seed DeSoto in the District 10-4Atitle game last week. The Crusaders are coming off a 6-0 loss to Berkeley Prep in the District 9-4A championship game. Alook at the team stats overall, the assessment that the teams are about equal is seen. Lake Placid has a team average of .300, while Tampa Catholic is at .274. The Crusaders have belted seven home runs and scored 110, with 21 stolen bases as a team. The Dragons have hit three home runs, scored 117 and have stolen 65 bases. So Tampa Catholic has a little more power, while Lake Anxious Dragons prep for Crusaders S ee SEBRING, Page B4 See LP, Page B4 Courtesy photo Highlands Ridge golfers Toni Fletcher, left, and Hazel Dobbs were featured guests on Sports Talk with Ed Lynch on Saturday, April 27.

Scheduled guests for the May 4 broadcast are Sebring boys tennis coach Jack Holt and Blue Streak baseball coach Brian Rapp. Tee time on Sports Talk News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Cullen Lovett races out of the box after a hit earlier this season, one of many that would add to his team-leading .346 average and help get him honored as the District 17, 6A Player of the Year. By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentAn up and down season on the diamond for the Blue Streaks took a tick upward for one player as the postseason honors started rolling in last week. It was just a day like any other when Sebrings own Cullen Lovett received a text from his grandpa reading, Congratulations! Lovett, unsure of what his grandpa was congratulating him for, asked his father what the text might be about. It was then that Lovett learned he had been recognized as the District 17, 6A Player of the Year. Lovett, currently in his junior season with the Streaks, is a strong contributor to the team as a second baseman and switch-hitter. Despite battling a shoulder injury, he currently leads the team with a .346 batting average, tallying up 28 hits and 14 runs scored. Lovett is tied for team leader in RBI with 12 and has a .465 on-base percentage with three stolen bases. To add to his successes, in nearly 100 plate appearances, Lovett has only struck out seven times and has a keen enough eye to draw 16 walks. s worked real hard coming back from surgery said Blue Streak head coach Buck Rapp. He tore his labrum in the fall, so you could see his dedication to work hard and get his body stronger. He did a real good job for us this year at a few different positions defensively, and he led us in most offensive categories. Lovett still has one more go-around with the Streaks before he retires his Sebring jersey and moves on to the next chapter in his life. Being dual enrolled, Lovett is on track to graduate his senior year with his AA degree in hand and hopes to be committed to play baseball somewhere by that time as well.

Also dismissed by new general manager Dave Caldwell were LouisC lark, director of pro personnel, and regional scout C hris Prescott. The moves came as no s urprise given that most new GMs bring in their o wn personnel staff after the draft. McDonough served as former GM Gene Smiths right-hand man the past four years. He raised eyebrows last year when he challenged reporters to find a better pro down the road thanJ acksonvilles third-round draft pick, punter Bryan Anger. Seattle took quarterback R ussell Wilson five picks later. C lark was promoted in December 2011. Prescott w as credited with scouting 2011 first-round pick B laine Gabbert, who hasnt proven to be a franchise quarterback. Jaguars part with 3 in front office Associated PressMONTREAL The Montreal Alouettes would welcome Tim Tebow to the CFL provided hes willing to compete for a job as a backup quarterback. The New York Jets released the former Heisman Trophy winner Monday just a year after acquiring him in a ballyhooed trade with the Denver Broncos. Tebow has been one of the leagues most popular players since his arrival but has drawn constant criticism for his passing mechanics. But his NFLfuture remains very much in doubt. If the former Florida star wants to keep playing quarterback, the CFL could be a landing spot. But if Tebow wants to come to Canada, Montreal has exclusive negotiating rights. Anthony Calvillo is entrenched as Montreals quarterback. The 40-year-old Calvillo is entering his 20th CFLseason and assesses his career on a year-to-year basis. That would leave Tebow to contend with former Boston College star Quinton Porter, a fiveyear CFLveteran, for the No. 2 spot. If Tim Tebow wants to come to Canada wed definitely welcome him, general manager Jim Popp said. Thats why we have him on our neg list and wed take a look at him and see if he can play in Canada, but it would obviCFLs Alouettes own Tebow rights but are set at QB See TEBOW, Page B4

C M Y K By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Given that the Miami Heat have won 41 of their past 43 games, its clear that things are going fairly well for the reigning NBA champions. And now they have time to get better. Monday was a day off for the Heat, a reward for a fourgame sweep of the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Heat returned to work on Tuesday though the earliest they will hit the floor to begin their second-round series against either Chicago or Brooklyn would be Saturday. It will be tough, but well challenge each other and well push each other in practice, Heat forward Chris Bosh said. We have great professionals. Were not going to let each other slip. Were going to challenge each other, keep our conditioning up. When this next series starts I think well be ready The time off certainly will be good for Dwyane Wade. Miamis starting shooting guard has been dealing with bone bruises around his right kneecap for more than a month now, and was so sore on Sunday that he did not play in the Heat series-clinching win at Milwaukee. At minimum, the layoff between rounds means Wade will have at least eight full days off without a game, possibly longer. s big, Wade said. Obviously, were one of the oldest teams in the league, maybe the oldest team in terms of rotation players. Guys have some bumps and bruises coming out of this series, so its going to be great to get some rest.

And even within the strong stats of Johnson and McCormack, a benefit can be seen. It shows they throw strikes and will be around the plate, Rapp said. Which means there will be pitches to h it, and our goal is to hopefully score one run per inning. Theyre a good team playing with a lot of confidence so well need to get after them and if we can get some runs up, it can add to the pressure for them. Which is another thing that, from looking at the stats, can be a benefit to the Blue Streaks. Other than the guys in this room, and maybe a couple of people outside these walls, nobody really expects us to win, Rapp said. So t heres no pressure on us. We have nothing to lose, so we c an just go out and have fun. Play a good game and see what happens. Garrett DeRoss will get the starting nod for the Streaks, and though a smaller sample size than those of theM ustang hurlers, has some pretty impressive stats of his o wn. In 19 innings pitched, DeRoss has yet to be scored upon and has given up just 10 hits, two walks and struck out 12. Perhaps some stats for Mitchell to ponder. Continued from B1 Placid has the edge in team speed, or at least aggressiveness on the base paths. Coach told us they dont steal a lot, shortstop Tyler Carr said. He said that they like to swing the bats. A nd while the Dragons arent a consistently highs coring team, they have s hown that they are capable of putting big numbers on the board, to the tune of 74 runs in their last seven wins. And while the numbers bear out that Lake Placid is well within their element, the worry could be that this next level, the stage of the state playoffs could cause the nerves to ramp up a bit. ere anxious knowing t hat one loss could end the season, Lott said. But the team is in a great mood and were having fun like usual and getting a lot of work done in practice. Third-baseman Jacob Cram echoed the overall feeling. e are looking at this game just like another game, he said. Not like its regionals and not like i s Tampa Catholic. Were not nervous about it. Weve just been working on our two-strike swings and curveballs. Abusiness as usual approach, as the Dragons s et to go out and take care of business. Continued from B1 N ews-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Jacob Cram and his Lake Placid teammates are ready and raring to go in tonights state playoff opener against the Crusaders of Tampa Catholic. News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE J immy Peck gets his swings during batting practice Monday afternoon, and will look to flex his hitting muscles tonight at Mitchell. Sebring feels no pressure LP confident Of course, he knows the value of perseverance and dedication, and will continue working hard to make this dream a reality. Im hitting the ball well and playing good defense, but there is always room for improvement. Throughout his baseball career, Lovett has had the constant support of his family and he credits them for his success. My dad pushes me every day, and my mom is always there for support and encouragement, he explained. Without them, I would not be the player or the man that I am today. And I cant forget my coaches, he continued. They have had a big impact on my life these last couple of years and I wouldnt trade those moments for anything. Lovett had some words of wisdom to share with rising athletes as well. Never give up on your dreams; if you are willing to put in the work, do it. The hard work will pay off. Indeed, and Lovett is quite the testimony to this statement, as evidenced by his success on and off the field. Continued from B1 Lovett puts in hard work pays off ously be competing for a backup job. T ebow led the Broncos to the playoffs in 2011, but became the odd man out in Denver when PeytonM anning arrived. The Jets acquired Tebow f or a fourth-round draft pick and $1.5 million in salary. P laying Canadian football would present Tebow with c lear challenges, given the importance of the passing game on the longer, wider CFLfield. None of us know if he can really play in Canada either so it would be a project to see what hes capable of doing, Popp said. Tim Tebow has a strong arm. You hear about the knocks on his throwing whether its accuracy or touch. If youre going to have success in Canada youre going to have to be able to throw the ball all over the field. But Popp said Tebows mobility would be a definite asset in Canada. It depends on what youre asking him to do, Popp said. If one day you decide to make him your starter then obviously youre going to formulate an offense that best suits Tim Tebow. I think right now theres 32 NFLteams that arent willing to do that. That doest mean a CFLteam wouldt in the future. But, again, until you have him and really figure out what he can and cant do you dont really know Tebow wouldnt be the first big-name quarterback to make the trek north. Doug Flutie, Warren Moon and Jeff Garcia all came to the CFLand blossomed into stars before returning to play in the NFL. But a CFLteam with Tebow would also have to adjust to his celebrity. The two-time NCAA champions No. 15 jersey with Denver ranked second in U.S. sales to Green Bays Aaron Rodgers in 2011. And if Tebow wants to come to Canada and theres no indication he does he would have to call Popp. I dont know what his process is going to be, if any, or if he even has an interest in playing in another league outside the NFL, he said. If they end up having that discussion Im sure well hear from them and well move from there. Popp said Montreal also has former Texas star quarterback Vince Young on its negotiation list, and Youngs representatives have spoken to the Alouettes twice. Each time the message has been the same: If Young came to Quebec, it would be as Calvillos backup. They know we have Anthony, they know if he (Young) comes hes not starting, Popp said. If (Tebow) has a real interest in coming to Canada, he or his representation will call. Continued from B1 Tebow would be back-up in Montreal MCTphoto Released by the Jets Monday, Tim Tebow will be sorting through his options perhaps e ven in the Canadian Football League.

An opening in the hedge has a foot bridge into the yard, but the bridge is roped off with a sign stating bridge closed and a statue of a dog with a bone in its mouth sits in the middle of the bridge. This clever use of statuary a nd recycled household pieces is seen throughout the yard at 404 Malcolm St. Eugene and Lovie Martin were presented with the Yard of the Month Award given byt he Avon Park Founders Garden Club, after a recomm endation from a passer-by. It isnt until you enter the yard, that you appreciate its beauty. It is obvious that the couple have a love for plants and gardening. T he Martins have used a bathroom pedestal sink as a planter/birdbath and a huge cooking pot is overflowing with plants. Around the baseo f the pot are small logs placed in a way to give the appearance of a campfire. Several small statues of children are placed in plant beds. T he couple has used plants that were grown from starters to fill beds around the perimeter of the yard. These include elephant ears, giant liriope, oyster plant, mondog rass and heather. Other plants have been p laced to best show off their color and texture. Bromeliads, caladiums, amaryllis, African iris, calla lily, ixora and periwinkle can be seen peeking through the g reenery. Agardenia bush s tands in a protected corner. Araised bed surrounds a huge oak tree that holds a s tag horn fern. Most stag horn ferns are seen hanging by chains from a tree, but this one is actually a ttached to the tree and was started from a small piece of a plant. Variegated schefflera forms a hedge across the f ront of the house. Awrought iron table and chairs provide a place to sit, relax and enjoyt he beauty of this yard.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Elmer Hall talked at the Lake PlacidN oon Rotary luncheon on April 25 about Earth Day and s ustainability. He pointed out the top 10 measures that would be usedt o gauge the warming of the planet. All point toward warming and all show signs o f getting worse at an accelerating rate. For example, t his decade, the thinning ice in the polar caps are starting to allow ships to navigate the North Pole (artic mer; something that was note xpected until 2050 or later. The problem with sustainability is figuring out first, what is non-sustainable. This requires measuring the resources used and the garbage produced. Once thei ssues and problems are understood, then the places to s tart become rather obvious. And getting started, is a must. Hall likes ideas that can be started immediately, liker ecycling. He especially focuses on activities that are immediately profitable and that can be implemented without government assis-t ance (mandate on Energy Efficiency (EE buildings and also telecommuting. EE should be started by a free energy audit by your favorite power company. Usually very little investment will result it 15-30 percent savings in utilities; the payback is in months, not years. Plus there are government and power company rebates. Make sure to include water and gas in a review audit. Also, review TV, Internet and phones, where one can usually realize a 25-50 percent savings if one exerts a little effort (and pressure Telecommuting is a favorite area of interest. The savings from a single fulltime telecommuter can easily be $30,000 per year with more than $20,000 in savings for the company. More if one counts the savings in time and other savings to the employee. Even more if one counts the community and environmental savings. In short, all need to understand the issues and start to identify the facts. Is it the truth? Once the facts are identified, the urgency becomes apparent, and the best places to start become conspicuous. Go to www.Earth911.org to find out what can be recycled, and where (http://earth911.com/recycling/). Put in the local zip code and get extremely local information. Theres an app for that on iPhone. Take florescent lights to Home Depot, for example; batteries t o Battery Plus, especially rechargeable batteries. All electronics and chemicalsm ust stay out of the garbage. Take stuff to the recycling c enter and drop it off. About the only plan to deal with the mountains of trash is to buildm ore mountains, or to burn it ( for power).

Shirley and LeeL undgren feel they need to leave this weekend dreading to view the results of an 11inch snowfall this week plus ice packed lakes where theirc ottage is located. We dont envy them and have attempted to convince them another week in sunny Florida wont disrupt their schedule but ...t hey and most of our northern neighbors will be leaving within a couple weeks. Wea re just getting back to water aerobics after a long winter break so just glory in thesew onderful days. Safe travel to all and happy summer d ays with family. Abit of sadness as one of our long-time residents willb e leaving the park to reside with her son. Bob and Peg G eorge came to Town and Country in 1995 from Rochester, N.Y. area via Crystal Beach. Bob passed away Nov. 29, 2012 and nowP eg will be moving to reside with son Larry in the Valrico a rea. She will be greatly missed by all who befriended her over the years. Ours incere good wishes go with you, Peggy. You and your f amily have a special place in our hearts. Who will soon forget Pegs Christmas cooki es, or a handcrafted little gift, or some of Peg and Bobs memories which Peg loved to recall? Past due congratulations t o Hal and Wendy Johnson as recipients of House of the Month award for April from our park managers. Residents of our lastH omeowner Association meeting approved monetary g ifts to Wounded Warriors (through our local VAandR ich Ingler) and to Cornerstone Hospice. We are a small park but have shared monetary donations over the years to various locald eserving organizations. We received word that Marie Taylor had successful knee surgery on April 16. Marie suffered so long witht his problem that she must be elated to have this surgery behind her. Virginia Burns will hopefully soon return home from rehab. Weve heard Betty Geiter and Marge Cerda have had some health issues since returning north. Our best wishes and prayers for better days ahead to all who need physical healing. Back in August 2006 in Hull, Ill., a small group of interested folks formed a support group to raise research money for Parkinsons disease. Our Marilyn White was part of this group and has served as co-director of the 5K-10K Race held in mid-August in her hometown. The committee and workers are mainly former West Pike alumni where Marilyn was a teacher for many years. The committee has adopted the title Parkinsons Pit Crew, and the race is called Hull of a Race with their website at hullofarace.com. Running courses are certified and draw more than 200 serious runners yearly. Hull is a small town of 450 people with four main streets, so raising $10,000 yearly over the past three years is a major project. The donated monies are stipulated for research only to cure Parkinsons. Raffles are held for gift certificates and merchandise from local businesses. There will also be a separate raffle for two king-size quilts, which our Marilyn prepared herself. The quilts are on display at Hull area banks. I viewed them in the process myself and they are absolutely beautiful. M arilyn, herself afflicted with Parkinsons, is one amazing, delightful, energetic lady and seeking a cure for this disease is her pas-s ion. We pray for a wonderful and successful day for this great endeavor. Thank you, Marilyn, for your inspiration to all of us at Towna nd Country MHP. April birthdays include Dallas Ross, Dwaine Lowe (special congratulations on celebrating his 80th year),D aniel Legault, Nancy Brennan, Ruth Lee, Barbara Quinn and Claudette Boisvert.

C M Y K By LARRYLEVEY News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Ask Elva Dennis of Avon Park about her childhood and chances are shell tell you her daddyh ad been in World War I. I remember pretty good when he came back from the Army, still in his uniform, she says. Peace had beend eclared before they sent him overseas. Ask her if she watches TV, s he just might tell you about seeing President George Bush and his library on then ews the other night. His mother hoped he wouldnt t alk too long. Yes, she does remember pretty good. She also knows that W oodrow Wilson was president when she was born and s he admits that President Roosevelt was the only one I fell in love with. This lady with a sharp-asa-tack memory has justt urned 100. Although her first name is Elva, most of h er friends call her Evelyn, much to her regret. It started, she says, when I was al ittle girl. Miss Elva was born in P erry, with the family then moving to Trenton and Plant City. My daddy worked in a s aw mill and they moved him about a lot. While in her 30s, she moved from Plant City to Avon Park, whereh er uncle and other relatives lived. I helped my uncle do the cook-i ng in his caf on Delaney Street a nd I lived in a room in back oft he restaurant. Then I worked across the street. It was a place for entertainment:d rinking beer, shooting pool, dancing. They called it Bill Hogans Place. A s she grew older, she worked as a maid at the Hotel Jacaranda, but she mainly cleaned homes for people. I stopped working when I was 80, she says, but I still do my own house. Not only that, she still does most of her cooking, bill paying and shopping, sometimes with a little help from her friends. She knows she is slowing down a bit, so she now intends to write out a shopping list to give to her friend Maxine (Floyd Maxines mother, Mary Packer, had been Miss Elvas real dear, dear friend, but has passed away. The way Miss Elva sees it, The Lord k nows I needed Maxine and He sent her to me. Maxine will do anything for me. A nother friend helps out on a regular basis. Viola B ell calls me every morning to see if Im all right. But most of my other friends h ave died. While Miss Elva uses a walker to move around, she seems to be in high spir-i ts with few aches and pains. In fact, the last time she saw a doctor was lastN ovember. And theres nothing w rong with her appetite. I eat al ot of chicken, she says with a smile. I love them chicken wings and vege tables; spinach, cauliflower, broccoli and ice cream and raisin pie (a pastry made by LittleD ebbie). When Miss Elva first came to Avon Park, she joined Beulah Baptist Church, where she is still active. Over the years, she has been given several certificates reading, In appreciation for many years of service as a Sunday School teacher Talking about her life, she touches on both the highs and the lows, but stresses the highs. She perhaps sums up her view with these words: I love everybody, white and colored. When the Lord calls me home, I want to go witha clean conscience, with nothing against nobody. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, May 1, 2013Page B9 GRIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 5/1/13; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 5 5 7 7 3 3 Courtesy photo Helen Hutchinson celebrated her 80th birthday at the Sebring Elks 1529.

NEWYORK (APs been a knockout in Germany. Now Sylvester Stallone hopes a musical based on his beloved boxing film Rocky will also be a hit on Broadway. Producers said Sunday they plan to get Rocky up and punching at the Winter Garden by February following a successful debut in Hamburg last fall. Based on the Oscar-winning 1976 film, the musical features a score by Ragtime veterans Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, and a story by Thomas Meehan, who wrote The Producers and Hairspray Originally written in English but translated into German for its world premiere and billed as Rocky: Das Musical, the show is produced by Stallone and Stage Entertainment USA. The reason I think it has worked so well there and why I think itll work on Broadway is that, yes, its a story about boxing, but the real story is actually an intimate, powerful and gritty and moving love story between two people who are both lonely and in a difficult place in their worlds, said Bill Taylor, managing director of Stage Entertainment USA. They rescue each other. Its very uplifting. The musical stays close to the film, which charted the rise and romance of amateur boxer and debt collector Rocky Balboa, played in Germany by Drew Sarich. No casting has been decided. Musical of Rocky heading to Broadway

Nearly 1,000 survivors and World War II vets joinedw ith former President Bill Clinton and Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Holocaust activist Elie Wiesel to mark the museums 20th anniver-s ary. Organizers chose not to wait for the 25th milestoneb ecause many survivors and vets may not be alive in another five or 10 years. We felt it was important, while that generation is still w ith us in fairly substantial numbers, to bring them together, said Museum Director Sara Bloomfield. Washington has many m onuments and memorials that offer something special for visitors from around the world, Clinton told the crowd, but the Holocaustm emorial will be our conscience. Since the museum opened, the world has made huge scientific discoveries, includingt he sequencing of the human genome, Clinton said. Every non age-related d ifference you can see in this room and across the globe, every single one isc ontained in one half of 1 percent of our genetic makeu p ... but every one of us spends too much time on that half a percent, Clinton said. That makes us vulnerable to the fever and thes ickness that the Nazis gave to the Germans. And that sickness is very alive all across the world today T he occasion marked a reunion of sorts for Clinton and Wiesel: Both were on hand to dedicate the museum at its 1993 opening. O n Sunday night, the museum presented its highest honor to World War IIv eterans who helped end the Holocaust. Susan Eisenhower accepte d the award on behalf of her grandfather, U.S. Gen. D wight D. Eisenhower, and all veterans of the era. The federally funded museum also launched a campaign to raise $540 mil-l ion by 2018 to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive and to combat antiSemitism, Holocaust denial and contemporary genocide. I t has already secured gifts totaling $258.7 million in its quest to double the size of the museums endowment by its 25th anniversary. A lso, a $15 million gift from Holocaust survivors David and Fela Shapell willh elp build a new collections and conservation center. Bloomfield said organizers w anted to show Holocaust survivors, veterans and resc uers that the effort will continue to honor the memory of 6 million murdered Jews,i n part by working to prevent genocide in the future. For instance, a studyr eleased by the museum last month found the longer the S yrian conflict continues, the greater the danger that mass sectarian violencer esults in genocide. The museums theme for its 20th anniversary is Never Again: What You Do Matters. Holocaust survivors, veterans gather to mark 20th anniversary of DC museum M CT Former President Bill Clinton, right, and Elie Wiesel, H olocaust survivor, Nobel Laureate and founding chairman of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, attend a tribute c eremony to honor Holocaust survivors and WWII veterans for the celebration of the museums 20th anniversary Monday in Washington, DC.

And while we all love the thrill of the grill,its a known fact that cookingm eat over charcoal can be harmful forour health because of the carcinogens that come from cooking overchemically chargedl ava rocks and from eating charred meat. Rather than giving up t he grill on those hot summer nights, here are afew ways to make your nextb arbecue a little healthier. Do not burn your meat. T ry to get used to eating meat thats more onthe medium side of well done.C ook your food just until it reaches thegoal temperat ure: 160 degrees for pork or ground beef 165 degrees for poultry 145 degrees for chops o r steaks Why is it bad to cook m eat longer than it needs to be cooked? Becauseburnt meat canc ontain carcinogens. Remove burnt parts of m eat beforeeating it. Alittle char is unavoidable and it also tastes prettygood, b ut dont eat incinerated meat. Marinate, marinate, marinate. Marinating meat helps to reducecarcino-g ens. Try using a mixture of vinegar, oil, herbs and spices.Why the marinade helps to cut down carcinogens in grilledm eat(research has shown carcinogens reduced by up t o 88 percent when marinade isused) is unclear buti t could be a combination of the antioxidants inthe marinade mixture or the barrier the marinade makes between thegrill and them eat. Either way, marinate your meat for your bestchance against those carcinogens. Clean the grill. Scrub t hat grill until its good and clean beforeusing it. Its easiest to do this when the grill is hot. Thecarcinogenic black coating will slough right off with your grillbrush. It will be healthier for you and it will also make your foodtaste much much better. Watch out for cross contamination. Dont bastem eat with marinatingliquid while its on the grill w ithout first boiling the liquid tokill any harmful bacteria. Also be mindful of using tongs for handlingraw chicken.D ont use them to flip over burgers. Thats asking f ortrouble. Another important step to prevent cross contamination is touse ac lean plate for carrying cooked meats to the table. C ook lean cuts. Reduce flare ups which create carcinogenic smoke. T hatmeans you shouldnt grill fatty pieces of meat like ribs or sausages(oh the humanity!) without boiling them first. The fatd ripping on thecoals is what causes those flare ups. Grill skinless chicken breasts,lean beef, veggies, and other lean items.A lways keep a squirt bottleof water beside the b arbeque so you can douse any flare ups thatc omealong.

I have no problem with him being gay; however, I do have a problem with the fact that he has asked me not to tell anyone. He isnt ready to come out to anyone else. I tried to advise him that until he is true to himself, he wont be happy. My son says if he comes out to anyone else, it would hurt so many people. I will keep his secret, but there is a young woman he is living with and planning to marry, and I do not believe this is fair to her or her child. He is not happy being a gay man, and thats why hes choosing to live a lie. He was raised in church and feels like he is betraying God by being gay. How can I support him and lie to this young woman he is with? My son is so confused. How do I help him and keep his secret at the same time? Anonymous DearAnonymous: Your son may not be happy being a gay man, but that is who he is. For him to keep a secret like this from his fiancee, who plans to share the rest of her life with him, will be more hurtful to her if he goes through with the wedding than telling her now. Help him by encouraging him to seek counseling through an LGBTcommunity center. It will be strictly confidential, and there is nothing he can tell them they haven't heard before. He has already cracked open his closet door by disclosing his sexual orientation to you.T his tells me that on some level he wants to open it all the way. He is fortunate that he has a parent who is as accepting and wise about life as you. Continue talking to him and encourage him to talk more with you. It may help him to become more comfortable opening up and to accept reality. DearAbby: I live in a small town where traffic isnt much of a problem. Recently, though, a young man was killed in a car wreck. He ran into a semi because he was texting while driving. His final text was to a friend who had asked if they could get together for a night of fun. As a rule, we look down on people who drink and drive, as this is unacceptable in todays world. But we do nothing to drivers who text and drive. Please advise your readers that no message is worth dying over. Last night there was another traffic accident caused by the same thing! Robert in Kilgore, Texas DearRobert: Sadly, that night of fun will have to be postponed indefinitely. Sometimes it takes a tragedy (or two) to wake people up because theyre operating under the delusion that they are the exception to the rules of the road or are invincible. DearAbby: My mother is in her mid-90s and in good health. She has no i ntention of dying soon, but asked me an interesting question. She has mileage points with a major airline and was wondering if she can use them for the final trip back to her home state for burial when the time comes. Do you know the answer? One-Way Ticket DearOne-Way: Your question is not only an interesting one, but its a first. I contacted a spokesperson for a major airline who responded that his company does not accept mileage points as a form of payment for any type of shipment. For her last flight, your mother would no longer be considered a passenger; she would be cargo, which is why her points idea wont fly.

The country music star filed the complaint for divorce against his wife Jessica on Friday afternoon in Williamson County, Tenn., citing irreconcilable differences. The two met in high school and have been married since August 2001. This is a really tough time for my entire family, Aldean said in a statement Monday afternoon. Jessica and I have been together since we were teenagers. Weve been through a lot of ups and downs over the years as we grew up together as a couple. She will always be important to me because she is the mother of my children, and I know that we will both always make our daughters our #1 priority Aldeans publicist confirmed last week the couple had separated after media reports surfaced. The filing comes six months after Aldean was photographed while appearing to kiss former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr in a Los Angeles bar. Aldean later apologized to fans on Twitter for acting inappropriately. Aldean and his wife met while in school in Macon, Ga., and were married long before Aldean found fame. He is countrys top-selling male act, one of its top touring draws and recently won the Academy of Country Musics male vocalist of the year award. Country star Jason Aldean files for divorce
