He wants city residents and his officers to get to know each other better. T hings have changed dramatically since the beginning. In 1913, as the town rose up out of the sand, founder George Sebring saw the need for law and order. Aaron Withers was hired as town marshall to keept he peace. He served only one year. In fact, six town marshals c ycled through Sebring between 1914 and 1924 three alone in 1916. Being a peace office cannot have been easy. The town b oomed into existence with a mix of growers, cowboys, adventurers, tourists, retired clergymen and entrepreneurs sniffing for a deal.

The Avon Park Relay for Life event will be held Saturday at the Community Center in Avon Park, 301 W. Main St., beginning at noon. Nineteen registered teams are ready to walk the day and night away during the 18-hour event that raises money for cancer research, survivors, caregivers and those currently battling the diseases. Currently, Relay teams have collected more than $25,000 for the cause. Despite last years Relay being cut short by a huge thunderstorm, the participants still managed to smash their goal by raising more than $50,000. Relay chairman Patti Brock is excited about the upcoming event and this years new goal. Our goal this year is $55,000. We did really well last year and just surpassed our goal so we want to step it up this year, said Brock. The new venue is the biggest change from previous years and was a strategic move by Brock and the rest of the Relay board. The new venue is important.

At one point both sides of the roadway were totally blocked. The crash occurred at 4:38 p.m. when Abel Perez, driving his semi-truck south on U.S. 27, hit an empty citrus semi-truck from behind. The citrus hauler was stopped at the light at Hammock Road in the far left lane. According to the Sebring Police report, Perez also was in the outside lane inattentive and following too closely. At the last moment he tried to change lanes to avoid the stopped truck, but could not, smashing into the rear of the empty citrus container and knocking Nancy Geiger, driving a Toyota in the center lane, into the right turn lane. Neither she nor the citrus truck driver were injured. Damage to their vehicles was minor. Perez was flown to Lakeland Regional Medical Center, which refused to release Perezs condition Tuesday morning. According to Sean Buford, the reporting police officer, Perez was awake and alert. I did not see obvious signs of trauma ... (but Highlands Regional Medical Center to be airlifted to Lakeland before I could speak to him. There was substantial damage to Perezs tractor.

Its just too bad so many of oury oung people think history started with the death of Princess Di or the birth of thei Phone. I was painfully reminded ofA mericas historical illiteracy and the failure of our educational systeml ast week while golfing with a few strangers in B urbank, Calif. One of the young men in my foursome was about 30a nd ran a restaurant in Los Angeles. W hen I told him in passing that I was going to be flying to Normandy, France, the next morning to raise a flag at anA merican cemetery there, his awful education b etrayed him. Why would there be an American cemetery atN ormandy? he asked. I thought he was kidding m e, but he wasnt. Why? I asked. Did you ever see Saving P rivate Ryan? Did you ever see The Longest Day? Do you remember the Second World War? I knew there was a war Do you know anything a bout D-Day? He looked at me like, Huh? I was shocked and b lunt. ou dont know why thered be an American cemetery at Normandy? Youre proof the educations ystem of this country sucks. After my golf outing, I flew to Normandy for the weekend. I had the honoro f raising the flag over the American cemetery at Normandy on Sunday and visiting the small town of Sainte-Mere-Eglise, which became the first French town liberated from the Germans in World War II. U.S. airborne troops captured the tiny town before dawn on June 6, 1944, to prevent German troops from using roads to attack Americans landing at Utah and Omaha beaches. (For those who know their World War II history only from the movies, the airdrop at Sainte-MereEglise is shown in The Longest Day and features Red Buttons as paratrooper John Steele, who played dead after his parachute got hung up on the church steeple.) It was great to visit little Sainte-Mere-Eglise and its 1,600 people. I met some of the few remaining 90something soldiers who f ought at Normandy and I talked to elderly French people who rememberw hen hundreds of brave young Americans dropped from the sky to liberatet heir town. But I was disappointed to learnt hat our government seems to have forgotten about marking thea nniversary of D-Day. In fact, the Obama a dministration is doing so little this year that the French government isp ulling out of the annual event and the American h onor guard is being forced to pay its own airfare to Normandy. As for the 2014 anniversary, the last major 10-yearc elebration that will include surviving veterans o f D-Day, it also is being neglected by the Obama administration. P resident Clinton nominated someone to be in c harge of the 1994 anniversary two years in advance. But as of this date, no one h as been nominated to be in charge of the 70th anniversary of D-Day in 2014. Im sure President O bama will eventually find time between his neverending campaigning and his serial golf outings to choose someone to overseet he 2014 D-Day anniversary events in Normandy. B ut it was embarrassing for me to go the AirborneM useum in Sainte-MereEglise and be asked why my government doesnt care about the D-Day anniversaries. T he people of SainteMere-Eglise love Americans because America saved them. They will never forget D-Day.T hey still have a dummy of an American paratrooper hanging from their church steeple. What happened at D-Day wasnt just a movie. It was history. If we dont talk about it, if we dont teach it, if we dont honor its anniversary, if we dont tell guys like my young golf buddy why what happened there was so important, it might as well have never happened.

Opinions expressed in letters or columns are solely the opinion of that author and not necessarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the News-Sun Students, faculty, family members and friends, it is my great honor to deliver your commencement speech today. It is my opinion that our society must take every opportunity to praise our young people for their hard work and accomplishment, and that is why ceremonies such as this are so important to our countrys future. It was not so long ago, after all, that a more conservative America saw things differently. What a harsh place America once was particularly for our young students. So primitive were educational practices when I was young that our gym teachers forced us to play dodgeball and other competitive games. Can you imagine how humiliating it was to have children whipping big rubber balls at your torso, and if you got hit and failed to catch the ball, you lost? Our teachers enjoyed pitting us against each other inside the classroom, too, with competitive quizzes and spelling bees. They kept score, too, which humiliated the losers and greatly damaged their self-esteem. Hard as it is to fathom, my generation played keep-away during recess. One kid carried the ball and everybody else tried to rip it away from him. It was a game about individualism; there was no teamwork, and there were no rules or adults to intervene. It was you against everybody else and it was most unpleasant. Well, dodgeball, scorekeeping and keep-away are relics of the past. Fortunately, enlightened adults are much more involved with children now, and we are able to spare children the harm their selfesteem would suffer from games and competitions. Thankfully, many enlightened adults are the parents who have contributed greatly to the accomplishments of todays graduates. It was you who stood by, protecting your sons and daughters from every one of lifes ills and heartaches. It was you who praised them for every little effort and sought to pump them up with their own self-importance and selfworth. It was not so long ago that parents were not so enlightened. Some parents once believed their children needed to figure out some things out on their own. They actually wanted their children to spend time with friends without adult supervision, so they could learn to socialize on their own. They actually wanted their children to go sled-riding without adults keeping them safe, so they could learn to play and to engage with nature on their own. Thank goodness those days are gone! There are some who criticize the way many parents and adults coddle todays children. They criticize helicopter parents who constantly hover over their children and come flying in the moment their child meets with any challenge or adversity. There are some who argue that our coddling is not doing our children any favors that our constant intervention in our childrens lives is inhibiting their ability to learn how to invent, discover and grow on their own, and how to make decisions and adjustments on their own. They say our efforts to bolster selfesteem, by prohibiting competition and by continually giving our children praise, ceremonies, awards and commendations for every silly thing, are setting them up for failure as adults that survival in adulthood will require real performance and results. They say that too many awards and ceremonies dilute the meaning of real accomplishment and achievement that events like the one we celebrate today are really designed for the enjoyment of the adults, who feel the need to live vicariously through even the most minor accomplishments of their children. To them, I say: Hogwash! And congratulations to the kindergarten Class of 2013!

May contains National Prayer Day, Peace OfficersM emorial Day, Loyalty Day, Law Day, National Military S pouses Day, National Employee and Fitness Day, Skin Cancer and PreventionD ay, Childhood Depression Day, National Anxiety D isorders Screening Day, as well as National Safe Kids Week, National SuicideA wareness Week, North American Occupational Safety and Health Week, N ational Nurses Week, Brain Tumor Action Week, C hildrens Mental Health Week, National Mental Health Counseling Week, National Police Week, World Trade Week, National SafeB oating Week, National Hurricane Preparedness Week and National Correctional Officers Week.. Keep in mind, the NewsSun cant guarantee this is an exhaustive list, but it ist he result of a two-hour Google research visiting n ine websites. Turns out every year is so jammed packed with days, weeks and months dedicated to diseases, conditions, pub-l ic health issues, or honoring groups and non-profit agencies that no one agency is keeping track of them all. In other words, if May were a piece of clothing, it would be a NASCAR drivers racing suit the kind coveredw ith dozens of sponsors p atches. We dont really know what to make of this. Certainly bringing attention t o good causes and accurate i nformation to the public makes sense and must dos ome good. We worry, however, that a person can be o verwhelmed, or completely confused with the crowded field of good causes. Can this tidal wave of special days, weeks and months lead t o public fatigue with their e xistence? A fter all, now that you k now how many important causes are celebrated in May, remember to thank psychologists, law enforcem ent and correctional officers, members of the military and their husbands and wives when you see them. Also try to remember that May is the month to buy hurricane supplies, checky our blood pressure, get screened for anxiety disorders and skin cancer, haveb reakfast with an Asian Pacific American, lunch witha n American Indian or Alaska Native, dinner with a rabbi. It also is the perfectt ime to a treat a nurse to a glass of wine, or take an older American cookies,f orm a company softball team, give a foster family a gift card and get life jackets for your bass boat. If you still have time, d ont forget to help at least one elementary school stud ent across a street during National Safe Kids Week. Then prepare for June, w hich is known, among other things, as National M yasthenia Gravis Month, and contains National Headache Awareness Weeka nd Career Nurse Assistants Day.

Continued from A2 Community Briefs Continued from A1 R elay for Life set in AP Saturday By GARYFINEOUT A ssociated PressTALLAHASSEE A probe ordered by Florida Gov. Rick Scott has determined that the pay and ben-e fits of state college presidents varies widely with little explanation as to why some presidents earn large six-figure salaries. This same review shows many presidents have contracts with provisions that appear to violate law or in some instances, the contracts automatically renew each year without approval by local college boards. Randy Hanna, chancellor of the Florida College System, said the critical review is prompting college boards across the state to alter and amend the contracts now offered to presidents. Scott last year ordered his chief inspector general to review the salaries and benefits offered to the 28 presidents in the state college system after trustees at a Jacksonville college agreed to a $1.2 million severance package with the outgoing president. e support our colleges with taxpayer funds and we must ensure we get the best return on that investment possible by graduating students with the skills and training they need to get great jobs, Scott said in a statement about the probe. Every dollar we invest in our colleges must be geared toward this ultimate goal. The probe did not cover the salaries and benefits paid to presidents at the states 12 public universities which include schools such as University of Florida or Florida State University. The final report released Monday showed that presid ents in the state college system are receiving nearly $10 million in salaries and benefits during the current fiscal year. S ome of the salaries range from nearly $144,000 for the president of North Florida Community College to more than $630,000 to the president at MiamiDade College. State law limits college president salaries to $225,000 if the money comes directly from state taxpayers. But colleges are allowed to augment the salary with money from other sources. Chief Inspector General Melinda Miguel noted that in some instances the total amount of pay and benefits offered to presidents was not readily transparent or that some contracts offered benefits for life which means the total owed by taxpayers is difficult to calculate. Some college presidents get thousands of dollars each year in car allowances, housing allowances or medical insurance premiums. One former president at a college in Bradenton received nearly $21,000 for health insurance premiums. Dennis Gallon, president of Palm Beach State College, receives a stipend of nearly $96,000 instead of a car and housing allowance. E. Ann McGee, president of Seminole State College, is receiving $1,000 a year to pay for home Internet access. Sandy Shugart, president of Valencia College, gets a golf club membership and membership in the group that hosts the Florida Citrus Bowl as part of his nearly $479,000 compensation package.

C M Y K By THOMAS J. SHEERAN Associated PressCLEVELAND One of t he first officers at the scene where three women were held captive in a Cleveland house for about a decade says the emotion of the momentw as overwhelming. Officer Anthony Espada, in response to a request from top police brass, wrote down his recollections of what hap-p ened May 6, an account that was posted on a Cleveland police department blog. Everybody was in the right place. It couldnt have gotten any better than that, that day, Espada wrote. I dont feel like a hero. Im just glad I was there, you know, just making sure they were safe. I feel so happy for them. The officers went to the home knowing they might find long-missing Amanda Berry. Radio dispatchers told them a 911 caller had identified herself as Berry and said, Im free now Driving up to the home, Espada recalled, We see this girl. Shes like raising her hand, holding a child. Im looking at my partner, Is it her? He said, I cant tell.We were pulling up closer and as soon as we pull up, my partner was driving, so she came up to the drivers side. He looked up at me and hes like, It is her That moment was overwhelming emotionally, Espada said. Then came another surprise as the officers weighed the possibility that Berrys captor was inside the house. e figured he might possibly be in the house because she kept pointing at the house. My partner asked if anyone was still inside. She said, Yes. Gina DeJesus and another girl.And it was like another bombshell with overwhelming force just hit me. The officers went into the house and quickly found Michelle Knight. She kinda popped out into ... the doorway and paused there for a second. I mean, w ithin moments she came charging at me. She jumpedo nto me ... Shes like, You saved us! You saved us! Then DeJesus appeared from another bedroom. I just look at her, Espada r ecalled. You can immediately tell who it is ... and I asked her, Whats your name?She said, My name is Georgina DeJesus.Veryo verwhelming. I mean it took everything to hold myself together Espada radioed the details. e found them! We found them! The officer said he replays the scene in his mind every day. The three women had been held captive since they disappeared between 2002 and 2004, when they were in their teens or early 20s, authorities said. Castro, a 52-year-old former school bus driver, has been charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape. His attorney has not returned messages seeking comment. Castro has been jailed on $8 million bond. He is under close scrutiny behind bars, on suicide watch and monitored every 10 minutes with mandatory reporting of all movements to a shift sergeant, according to jail logs. The logs, obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press through a records request, also indicate two guards must accompany him anytime hes out of his cell. Castro is a high profile inmate; very high media attention, notes a handwritten entry on Friday. Castro has spent most of the last few days lying on a mat in his cell or on his bunk, occasionally walking around the cell and once staring in the mirror, the logs show. Hes had Kool-Aid at least twice, complained he was cold when he first arrived Thursday and said he had a headache on Sunday. The same day guards had to stop him using loose strings from the mat to floss his teeth. T he womens rescue unfolded last week whenB erry broke out part of a locked outer door and yelled to neighbors to help her e scape and call police. She fled into the street holding a6 -year-old daughter fathered by Castro. be modifications to the city's land use and zoning regulations. M uch of the discussion centered around residential use designations such as boarding house and rooming house. U nder the new provisions, those could be set as conditional use in residential areas, as would bed and breakfast-style inns andp laces of worship. Also addressed were permits for places of assemblys uch as clubhouses as well as recycling centers and facilities for recycling mate-r ials processing. When it comes to comm ercial living facilities in residential areas, LaRue suggested there might be occu-p ancy levels and parking requirements set. At this t ime there are no such regulations in the Avon Park code. In answer to a question from councilman TerryH eston as to how the standards were determined, they a pparently were taken from existing law in the city of West Palm Beach. He askedf or other, similar ordinances for comparison. It also would be a good idea to have a cheat sheet of what we currently are doing a nd what you are proposing, said Councilman Garrett Anderson Several times during the meeting, it was repeated thatM onday nights discussion s imply was a workshop with any action on a final ordinance to include both multiple readings and a public hearing. C ommunity activist Patricia Austin came forward to question several provisions of the plan, such as what had prompted the deci-s ion on occupancy limitations, how the city would know how many people were in a given dwelling, how it would be enforced and ift here would be fines imposed for violations. Austin later asked the c ouncil whether such restrictions might drive people out of the City of Charm, whichc ould have a deleterious effect on the downtown busin esses. Both Yudith Fernandez, an owner of One West MainS treet, and an attorney for her business, John deLeon, c harged the pending legislation was targeted at the Hispanic population. Part of the concern of this council and others int his community, we believe, is racial animus toward the p eople who may be moving into the boarding house at One West Main Street p rimarily Hispanic agricultural workers, deLeon said. H e contended that there a lready are independent regulations for occupancy for farmworkers in boarding houses, such as Health Department mandates. Hea lso objected to the redefinition of family as outlined in the draft ordinance. Many of the same charges were leveled in 2007 asA von Park worked on developing a landlord ordinance. At the time, officials of LULAC indicated that based on newspaper articles andc omments on the local radio it was evident that racial profiling and discriminatoryp ractices were the underlying reason for that particular measure. T he ordinance went forward, with an initial round o f inspections finding at least 75 landlords failed to get rental permits as requiredb y municipal statute. The Avon Park landlord o rdinance was not mentioned during Monday night's workshop. Council members agreed to let the process move for-w ard. Mr. LaRue is going to b ring us some more information isnt he? asked Heston es I am, he responded. N o date was set for the next agenda date for the m atter.

The National Transportation Safety Board said states should shrink the standard from the current. 08 blood alcohol content to .05 as part of a series of recommendations aimed at reducing alcohol-related highway deaths. More than 100 countries have a dopted the .05 alcohol content standard or lower, according to a report by the boards staff. InE urope, the share of traffic deaths attributable to drunken driving was reduced by more than half within 10y ears after the standard was dropped. Awoman weighing less than 120 pounds can reach .05 after just oned rink, studies show. Aman weighing up to 160 pounds reaches .05 after two drinks. New approaches are needed to combat drunken driving, whichc laims the lives of more than a third of the 30,000 people killed each year on U.S highways a level of carnage that that has remained stubbornly consistent for the pastd ecade and a half, the board said. Our goal is to get to zero deaths because each alcohol-impaired death is preventable, NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman said. Alcohol-impaired deaths are not accidents, they are crimes. They can and should be prevented. The toolse xist. What is needed is the will. But the recommendation to lowering the alcohol content thresholdt o .05 is likely to meet strong resistance from states, said Jonathan Adkins, an official with the Governors Highway SafetyA ssociation, which represents state highway safety offices. It was very difficult to get .08 in m ost states so lowering it again wont be popular, Adkins said. The focus in the states is on high (blood alcohol contentfenders asw ell as repeat offenders. We expect industry will also be very vocal about keeping the limit at .08. The lower alcohol content threshold was one of nearly 20 recom-m endations aimed at reducing drunken driving made by the board, including that states adopt measures to ensure more widespread use of use of alcohol ignition interlockd evices. Those require a driver to breathe into a tube, much like the breathalyzers police ask suspected drunken drivers to use. The board has previously recomm ended states require all convicted drunken drivers install the interlock devices in their vehicles as a condi-t ion to resume driving. Currently, 17 states and two California counties require all convicted drivers uset he devices. However, only about a quarter of drivers ordered to use the devices actually end up doing so, NTSBs aid. Drivers use a variety of ways to evade using the devices, including claiming they wont drive at all or dont own a vehicle and therefore dont need the devices, staff said. T he board recommended the National Highway Safety Administration, which makes safety grants to states, develop a program to encourage states to ensure allc onvicted drivers actually use the devices. The board also recommended that all suspected drunken drivers whose licenses are confiscated by police be required toi nstall interlocks as a condition of getting their licenses reinstated even though they havent yet beenc onvicted of a crime. Courts usually require drivers to pay for the devices, which costa bout $50 to $100 to buy plus a $50 a month fee to operate, staff said. l ation grew from an estimated 900 to more than 7,000 too big for a single marshal to manage.

Between 1913 and 2013, Sebrings law enforcement grew from one man to a pro-f essionally trained force of 34 sworn law officers. Dettman is very proud of those men and women. The average age (of a Sebring police officer in 2013) is 40.9 years, he said. Ona verage they have 13.7 years of law enforcement experie nce, and an average of 11.5 years working in Sebring.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Avon Park High School recently celebrated a wonderful cheer-l eading year with a recent banquet in their honor. T he Junior Varsity Cheerleaders for 2012-13 received an athletic certifi-c ate. Cheerleaders were Jocelyn Jackson, Acuria S mith, Madison New, Jaden Hancock, Alexandra McSorley, FrancescaP emble, Sierra Joseph, Jasmine Johnson, Annissa Collier, Deonjai Smith. S pecial recognition was given to the JVCaptains K elsey Knowles, Emily Jahna, and Brandi Best. I truly loved this year Knowles said. It was a privilege to be able to captains uch a great group of girls. We all got along really well and had a fun and easy-going season. The varsity cheerleaders for 2012-13 received two different awards. Thosec heerleaders completing their first year on varsity r eceived a letter and a megaphone. They were Niesha Brown, Hannah Farr, Morgan Hamilton, Taylor Hedrick, Brooke Jackson,J uliana Jackson, Ricoby Jefferson, Kaitlyn McNeil, Renee Mondesir, Genesis Moro, Taylor Ritchie, and Shelby Luke. Second yearv arsity cheerleaders Tiffany Albright, Roxanne Guerndt, Kelsie Jahna, Marche Lawton, Shelby Votaw, Caylie Wall, and Jordan Wright were awarded a second year bar for their letters. Varsity team captains were seniors Tiffany Albright, Baleigh Jackson, and Kelsie Jahna. As a captain, it was challenging at times, Jahna said, but I enjoyed every second of the season. Under the leadership of head cheer coach Tammy Williams, the APHS cheerleaders are also in their second year of rebuilding a competition team. This team allows an opportunity for the cheerleaders to competitivelyp erform routines against other high schools across the s tate. At the regional level, the team placed second out ofe ight teams. They also found great success at the state l evel, placing 11th out of 24 teams and scored just tenths of a point away from eighthp lace, which would have qualified them for the state finals. The competition team c ompeted in the small nontumbling division for their c lass. The 13 members of this team were a mixture of JV and varsity cheerleaders Roxanne Guerndt, JadenH ancock, Jocelyn Jackson, Juliana Jackson, Kelsey Knowles, Marche Lawton, Genesis Moro, Madison New, Taylor Ritchie, Shelby Votaw, Caylie Wall, and Jordan Wright. Captains were Juliana Jackson and Caylie Wall. I could not have asked f or a better competition season or a better group of peop le to compete with this year, Jackson said. Everyone worked so harda nd put so much effort and commitment into every sing le practice. We became like a family and Im so proud of how much we were able toa ccomplish this season. The APHS 2013-14 cheerleaders will hold their first f undraiser of the year June 10-13 as they hold a cheerl eading clinic for those ages 4 to eighth grade from 8 a.m. to noon each day. The $40 cost includes a T-shirt as well as the opportunity toc heer at an APHS home football game in the fall. Questions may be sent to assistant varsity cheer coach Melanie Jackson by emailing jacksonteacher@hotmail.com By KELLI KENNEDY A ssociated PressMIAMI Hospitals nationwide could lose half a billion dollars in federal funding for uninsuredp atients next year under the national health overhaul a loss that will hit especially hard in states that decided against expanding Medicaid coverage. Cutsc ould jump to $4 billion in 2020, according to estim ates released Monday by federal health officials. Hospitals that treat a l arge number of uninsured residents have relied on f ederal funding in the past to offset the cost. But the Affordable Care Act assumes that more residents will have Medicaid or pri-v ate health insurance, meaning h ospitals would see fewer uninsured patientsa nd need less assistance. B ut hospitals in states that declined toe xpand Medicaid such as Florida, Texas a nd Pennsylvania s tand to lose the federal funding without a corresponding increaseM edicaid-covered patients to offset it. The decision not to expand means potentially millions of residentsi n those states who would have b een eligible for the expanded Medicaid coverage will continue going to the emergency room when they are sick and hospi-t als will be stuck with the bill. As originally written, the Affordable Care Act required states to accept theM edicaid expansion as a condition of staying in the program. But a Supreme Court decision last summer gave each state the right to decide. So far, 21 states plus Washington, D.C., have accepted the expansion, while 14 states have turned it down. Another 15 states are still weighing options. Among the states that arent expanding Medicaid, Texas hospitals could lose more than $56 million next year, Pennsylvanias could lose nearly $34 million, Missouris could lose about $26 million, Alabamas may lose $17 million and Florida hospitals could stand to lose more than $10 million, according to rough estimates from the Department of Health and Human Services. ou have continuing high levels of uncompensated care but the funding you had designated to address it is shrinking so the amount of unmet costs will grow said Bruce Rueben, president of the Florida Hospital Association. The formula determining cuts in each state is complicated, but generally states that have a smaller number of uninsured patients will receive larger reductions than states with high numbers of uninsured patients. States have broad discretion to distribute the payments to hospitals and the allotments also vary greatly among states, so part of the federal health law reforms federal payments to states t o help pay for uncompensated care for uninsured and low income populations, federal officials said in a statement. T hey also noted Monday that some states are still trying to decide whether to expand Medicaid, which will impact the formulas used to decide how muchm oney to cut from each state. Because of that, fede ral health officials only proposed formulas for cuts for the next two years. H ealth experts are divided in their opinions of what w ill happen next. Judy Solomon, vice president of health policy for the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a liberal t hink tank, said the new regulat ions could mean that states that dont expandM edicaid will get a break and f ace smaller cuts compared to states that aree xpanding Medicaid. But even if thats t rue, she said hospitals will s till be in trouble. In the states that dont expandM edicaid, even though the DSH cut may be relatively lower than had they had expected, theyre stillg oing to be worse off b ecause of the large number of uninsured people who are still going to need services and the fact that the hospitals wills till be receiving a cut, Solomon said. But Rueben said he doest think the feds will take pity on states that choosen ot to take them up on their generous offer to pay for Medicaid expansion. Under the federal health law, the federal government is offering to pay 100 percent of the coverage for newly eligible Medicaid recipients for the first three years and at least 90 percent after that. For those states that willfully deny their own citizens coverage when it was so substantially paid for...(the feds tect those states from their own bad decision, he said. How does that make good policy sense?

A ssociated PressD AYTONABEACH Some 74 years after graduating from high school, a 91-year-old woman received a bachelorsd egree from Daytona State College. The crowd at Ocean Center in Daytona Beach erupted in applause asI rene Lewis moved across the stage Monday to receive a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in supervision and management. School officials saids he is likely the oldest graduate in the 53-year h istory of the college. Lewis downplayed her accomplishment, tellingt he Daytona Beach NewsJournal that graduating beats a movie. But the gold tassel on her cap indicated she graduated with a grade point average between 3.8 and 4.0. Im only a pebble here in this group, Lewis said o f the 4,200 classmates dressed in blue caps and gowns. Just one pebble. L ewis, a longtime resident of Ormond Beach, g raduated high school in 1939 and received an Associate of Arts degreef rom Daytona State in 1972. She attended classes on and off over the years b efore deciding in 2010 to go for her degree. Coming back to college saved my mind, Lewis said, explaining that she had an accident with an air compressor while filling at ire seven years ago. When you lose your independence, you go crazy, and I felt I was going in that direction. So I thought Id go back to school. Woman, 91, graduates from Daytona State College

Cowpokes wins Clays for Kids CHICAGO The little engine that could finally threw a gear. The Chicago Bulls might have been the most heartwarming tale going this postseason, but its over. Unlike the bedtime story, fumes and spare parts get you only so far in the NBA. It was always a matter of when not if theyd fall apart. Go back and take a look at what happened in the third quarter of their Eastern Conference semifinal Monday night against the Miami Heat, or better yet, dont. It was about as ugly as youd imagine. The Bulls scored exactly nine points in the period, an all-time franchise low. At various times in the final quarter, Chicago had Nazr Mohammed, Daequan Cook, Malcolm Thomas, Marquis Teague and 35year-old Rip Hamilton on the floor. Whats scary isnt that some NBAfans had no idea that any or all of that group was in the league; rather, its that many of those same fans wouldnt recognize the guys they were supposed to be spelling. The Bulls wound up shooting 26 percent and totaled just 65 points by the end of Game 4, another team record for futility. Yet they probably had no business getting that many, let alone this far in the playoffs. ere kind of putting screws and bandages everywhere, said forward Taj Gibson, another backup pressed into regular service. Its frustrating. Every night and every day. s rough. Its really rough, he added a moment later. I wish I could explain how Im feeling right now. How everybody in this locker room is feeling now Actually, theres no need for a lengthy explanation when a glance will do. Gibson had icepacks covering both knees as he talked. Across the room, Joaki m Noah had his right foot (plantar fasciitis merged in a bucket of ice. Next to him, Nate Robinson had an icepack covering his left shoulder. The players who hadnt left in a hurry to lick their wounds at home were still lined up in the trainers room, awaiting their turns. Every team has to cope with injuries, but what happened to the Bulls and coach Tom Thibodeau this season gives the phrase new meaning. His best player, Derrick Rose, the leagues MVPin 2011, was a scratch at the start because of knee surgery, and despite a doctors note clearing him to return in March, he never did. Somehow, the Bulls won 45 regular-season games, then even more surprising, beat back Brooklyn in the first round. Naturally, things only got worse.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Abig first inning and enough insurance runs at the end paved the way to Glissons 10-6 win over Publix in Dixie Boys play Monday night at the Max Long Sports Complex. In a battle for second place behind league-leading Pool Paradise, Glissons was also looking for a bit of revenge, having lost to Publix by a 6-5 count earlier this season. And they got things going right off the bat as Gabe Gomez lead off the top of the first with a single to right and moved to third on a Seth Cannady double into the right-center field gap. Both runners came in on a Josh Crouch single up the middle and Kyle Helms then reached on an error. Getting aggressive, Glissons tried a double steal with the two runners, and when the throw to third sailed into left field, both came home to make it a 4-0 lead. Edwin Ayala started to set the table again, doubling to right and was brought in by a Clint Patrick single. One out later, Grayson Caldwell ripped a double down the left-field line to score Patrick for a 6-0 lead. Cannady then took to the mound for the home team and retired the first two batters, but was solved by Jay Bible who sliced a double to left center. Luis Lugos ensuing grounder could not be handled and Bible came in to put Publix on the board before Cannady retired the next batter to end the inning. Glissons looked to add to the already sizable margin when Cannady singled and Crouch was hit by a pitch. But Brendan Doty, on in relief, fielded a comebacker and started a 1-6-3 double play, before getting the third out on a grounder to short. Cannady worked through the next two innings and kept Publix off the board, and while Rey Moro blasted a double to deep left-center in the third for Glissons, he was left stranded. But in the fourth, consecutive walks to Cannady and Crouch lead to a two-run Helms single that pushed the lead to 8-1. The score held there into the sixth when Publix reliever Trey Bond escaped a Fast start gets win for Glissons News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Rey Morro shows good form in fielding this grounder to second as his Glissons squad outlasted Publix Monday night.

Now the Bulls head to Miami down 3-1, where this series will end officially, but mercifully, too. Theyre in a tough situation, LeBron James said not that it stopped him from dropping 27 points on Chicagos wearied defenders. Theyve had some injuries and illnesses and whatevers going on. They dont have their full roster, but thats not for us to worry about. That was Thibodeaus worry all season, and the jury could be out for a while deciding whether he treated the players available at any given moment like a chess master or a meat grinder. The teams unofficial motto became Next Man Up! the Bulls left a placard with the slogan on every seat in the arena Monday night but Next Man Down!might turn out to be more accurate in the long run. Thibodeau possesses one of the leagues best defensive minds, and the effort he coaxed, mostly from a bench long on second-stringers, was something to behold. In what might have been his final motivational ploy for this season, Thibodeau put out a revised lineup just moments before Game 4 with Deng listed as active, even though he wasnt long out of a hospital bed. The coach also reached deep into his doghouse and finally tossed a few minutes to Hamilton, who like Robinson, shoots the ball without conscience and is a defensive liability. Neither is Thibodeaus kind of player. Whether the pair returns r emains to be seen, though y ou could say the same about a few more of the youngsters and castoffs the coach used to great effect. The more important question is whether the front-liners Rose, Deng, Heinrich and Noah, whos played relentlessly despite the foot injury will continue to entrust their careers to a coach who wont, or cant, ever take his foot off the throttle. Afterward, Thibodeau wa s asked whether the Bullsperformance was proof theyd simply run out of steam. No, he replied. I think the thing is theyre (Heat great team. We have to com e out with great intensity but we also have to make shots. The Bulls never really had enough guys who could do that shoot to seriously contend. They came back down 3-1 against the Nets and stole the first game of this series with toughness and intensity, but theyre short on those qualities now, and exhausted to boot. Theres a lot left in the tank, Robinson said bravely. Down 3-1, you never know. Take it to Game 7 and we end up winning, its going to be a beautiful story to tell my kids one day Or not. Jim Litke is a national sports c olumnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at jlitke(atg Continued from B1 Bulls all but done with run bases-loaded, no-out jam. Then, with one out and two on in the bottom of the frame, Bond blasted a shot that cleared the fence in right-center field for a three-run homer that cut the seemingly safe lead to a much more intriguing 8-4. Glissons got two of those runs back, however, when Cannady hit a photo copy of Bonds blast for a two-run dinger in the top of the seventh to push the margin b ack to 10-4. With just three outs left, Publix had a little left in them and made things a bit interesting off Crouch, who came on to try to close it out. Doty lined a double to left to lead things off and Everett Hurst worked a walk before a stolen base and wild pitch allowed Doty to score. Bible then belted one to right that couldnt be corralled, bringing Hurst in. But Crouch settled in and reared back to strike out the next three batters to ease the nail biting and secure the win. It got a little close there, Glissons head coach Ed Crouch said. But thats how it is between these two teams. The whole league, really, is pretty well balanced and that makes for some good, fun games. e made some mistakes defensively and werent too smart with our base running, but those are things well work and get ready for the City Tournament. Glissons looks to build on the win Thursday night as they travel to face Lake Placid 2 at the Lake June West fields, while Publix will try to bounce back against Pool Paradise at Max Long Thursday.

Dixie tilt goes Glissons way Associated PressT AMPA South Florida and Florida State have agreed t o a home-and-home football series, with games scheduled between the Bulls and Seminoles in 2015 and 2016. USF athletic director Doug W oolard announced the agreement Monday. The t eams will play in Tallahassee on Sept. 26, 2015 and in Tampa on Sept. 24, 2016. The Bulls and Seminoles have met twice in football. USF won 17-7 in Tallahasseei n 2009, and Florida State came out on top 30-17 in Tampa last season. South Florida, Seminoles will play in 2015, 2016 Special to the News-Sun MONTEREY, CA Sunny and warm weather conditions greeted the Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda participants before race two at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. On a beautiful day for the 2013 American Le Mans Monterey Presented by Patrn, the field put on a great show and Comprent Motor Sports Sean Rayhalls performance was even more stunning than the California landscape. Rayhall clinched the victory in a time of 46:22.237 in 33 laps around the 2.238mile, 11-turn circuit. The 18-year-old driver had a large lead over the rest of the field, finishing over 20 seconds faster than the next competitor. He posted his fastest time on lap five of the race and led the field flag-to-flag in the No. 14 Robert Talbott, lan DP02 Lites 1 entry. e had a little competition on the start of the race I guess but I am really happy to come away with Robert Talbott winning both these races, Rayhall said. This is an awesome event and its awesome to be here at Laguna with everyone and to come away with two poles and two wins for Robert Talbott, Comprent Motor Sports and Racing Radios. I really have to thank everyone behind me in my program for giving me a chance to do this. Rayhall began in the Cooper Tires Pole Position followed by Ryan Booth, Daniel Goldburg, Mikhail Goikhberg and Jon Brownson (Masters The starting grid was set by the second fastest lap times in qualifications on Thursday, May 9. Despite losing his damper cover during the pace lap, Performance Techs Goldburg finished second in the No. 6 car. He was able to hang on to the piece and toss it to an IMSASafety Official before the race began, and therefore didnt need to pit, which helped him keep his position for the start. After a long weekend, Goldburg will take a second-place finish as his 35th birthday present. Ive had a really entertaining weekend!, Goldburg exclaimed. The team did a really great job putting the car back together because I had a little offin practice and they had me back together for the next session. Then I had an incident in qualifying so its been a topsy-turvy weekend. esterday the car didnt start on the grid so I started in the back of the pack and made it up to fourth. And at the beginning of this race I had a piece of the hood fly off and I pitched it and just kept going. From there Sean (Rayhall race. He is really fast here and I just tried to keep up. I had a pretty clean race and happy to come home with points and a podium for my birthday! Goldburs Performance Tech teammate Booth battled with Rayhall on the first lap but contact forced him to retire from the race without completing a full lap. Booths exit gave Goldburg a chance to slide into the second position, which he held onto for the remainder of the race. Finishing in third position was JDC Motorsports Mikhail Goikhberg. After a seventh-place finish the day before, Goikhberg improved four places to finish out the weekend. It was good, we hoped again to have more race pace today, but the car developed a little bit of understeer about halfway and then we just cruised to the finish, Goikhberg said. Developed a big gap behind us and a big gap in front of us. But we will see how the points come out and just keep working on our pace. The next race on the Cooper Tires Prototype Lites powered by Mazda schedule is at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Diamond Cellar Classic, June 14-16.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunL AKE PLACID Dustin Angell, education coordinator for Archbold Biological Station, educated the Lake Placid Noon Rotary mem-b ers on May 9. Archbold is a shared mission of research, conservation and education in three special places. Angell focused on the educational portion. The station is dedicated on sharing its resources with students of all ages, from elementary level to post graduate level, including students pursuing continuing education. Staff biologist have faculty affiliations at Florida universities and graduate students may be advised by Station faculty. More that 135 graduate theses have stemmed from research at Archbold. Research training is provided by the Station staff through undergraduate and graduate internships. Visiting college classes from around the country conduct field courses at the Archbold Biological Station. They also have a day camp for children during the summer. Archbold Expeditions was founded in 1937 by Richard Archbold, a colorful aviator-explorer. He then established Archbold Biological Station in 1941. The Station was a preserve where scientists could live and conduct biological research in a natural setting. He lived at the Station and worked constantly to improve its facilities. Upon his death in 1976, Archbold left his estate to Archbold Expeditions to provide permanent funding. Angell said there are birds that have been micro chipped, and there are certain bird feeders that will open for only those birds so they may be studied. He showed pictures of gopher turtles and live videos of them sleeping, fighting and maybe giving mating calls. For more information on Archbold Biological Station educational program, contact Angell by email at dangell@archbold-station.org or call him at 465-2571.

As you can imagine, there w as a lot to catch up on ... jobs, marriage, children, g randchildren, retirement, travels and interests. Everyone looked familiar, but it took a look at the name tag to recall a name. The campush as grown in number of students and buildings, but some of the remaining buildings brought back a lot of good times. I recall the day my parents left me at King Hall, scared but excited aboutb eing in college. I remembered graduation in the audit orium, four years later being scared and excited about beginning my teaching career. Afew of those classmates I have kept ties witho ver the years, but others I lost contact with so this was a great chance to renew those friendships. It was a busy three days, but well worth thet rip.

They swap stories about the medications they may be taking and the lifestyle changes theyre making to improve their health.

DearAbby: I live in Alaska and have good friends I visit every summer on the East Coast. I have some acquaintances and former co-workers who live there, too. Many of them w ant me to visit when I come down. I have grown apart from these former friends and keep in touch only through occasional emails and Facebook. Flying from Alaska to the East Coast is expensive and time-consuming. I really just want to rest and hang out with the friends Ill be staying with. Even when I avoid posting pictures of my vacation on Facebook until after the trip, I get comments or emails about me not stopping by or letting them know I was in town. Whats the polite way to tell these former co-workers and acquaintances that I dont want to spend my vacation time with them? Or should I just get over it and devote some time to them as well? Trying To Be Polite in Anchorage DearTrying ToBe Polite: If you have any desire to continue the relationships with your former co-workers and acquaintances, why not arrange to meet a group of them at an agreed-upon place one afternoon for a reunion? If you dont, then either ignore their comments or respond to the emails by saying you needed to rest, which is the reason you didnt socialize more during your vacation.

Free family health kits offer news you can use I shared some tips with you a couple weeks ago about grilling meats,but theres more to summer barbecue season than burgers and steaks. Why turn on the stove to c ook your veggies when you have a perfectlygood h ot grill already prepped? Never mind the fact that grilled veggies and fruits t aste like something out of Heaven if you know how to cook them properly. Here are some of my best p roduce grilling tips:Dont use your veggie peelerDont peel your vegetables before yougrill them. A nother reason why you need to buy organic prod uce. Youlllose the nutrients and much of the flavor if you peel your veggies b efore they hit the grill. Youll also get a smokier flavor if you leave the peels o n.
