By SCOTTDRESSEL firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK County engineers have come up with a new way to handle the intersection of Phase III of the Sebring Parkway, Memorial Drive and College Drive. The concern has been how to keep College Drive, which winds its way through the South Florida State College campus, from becoming a major link between the next phase of the Parkway and U.S. 27. The college wanted to keep as much traffic as possible off College Drive. The proposal discussed Tuesday morning before the county commission is a traffic circle, which would shunt traffic coming north on the Parkway onto Memorial Drive. County Engineer Ramon Gavarette told the board that there had been six or seven ideas proposed, most of which would have required the county to purchase right of way.

Many of the cast have a ppeared in HLTproductions in the past. Just as exciting are the number of new faces on stage. Among the stage veterans a re Olivia Hitt, who plays the cheated girlfriend. Her cousin, Sydney Hitt, plays the girl who tries to steal the boyfriend, and AustinW estergom plays the boyfriend. Other cast members include Lyndsey Reck, Cassady Hitt (Sydneys sister), Christina Acosta, Evan Reed, Easton Davis and Corey Adams. Lindsay Lynch, who directed the show, said it serves two purposes providing entertainment for the young people in Highlands County and providing a venue where young people may perform. e tried to pick a show that would showcase talent, she said. More than two dozen adults are working behind the scenes, she added. Some are stage crew, but others are mentoring students in all aspects of thea ter. There are only five perf ormances of the show Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, and a matinee on Saturday and Sunday.

PB: Power Ball Lottery Center By BARRYFOSTER N ews-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Avon Park has teamed with the Home Builders Institute to have work done in theb unk rooms of the Avon Park Fire Department. The HBI best known for its work at the Avon Park Youth Academy teaching young men con-s truction skills such as electrical, carpentry and plumbing now has partnered with the HBI Veterans Program. That centers on re-educating returning war veterans in ane ffort to help ease them back into civilian employment. The program has been running for a couple of months now and will wind up at the end of June, said HBI Project Manager Tracy Mitchell. T here had been 17 individuals participating in the program. However, Mitchell said there have been four placements into the area job market. O riginally, Avon Park Safety Services Director Jason Lister had asked the Avon Park City Council for permission to build a practice wall in Hangar 53 at the municipala irport to let the crew have some hands-on experience. However, he l ater suggested that the expansion project at the fire department might kill two birds with one stone. Plans are to convert what is now a storage room at the fire station i nto sleeping quarters for the fire captain and lieutenant. If the work goes beyond the end of next month, we will simply finish it up with some of our clients fromt he Avon Park Youth Academy Mitchell said. In the meantime, the HBI Veterans crew has been working for the Avon Park Housing Authorityd oing an $80,000 remodeling of a four-bedroom unit at Lake Tulane. They already have done the demolition work and now are pulling out gas lines, said Avon Park Housing Authority Executive Director Larry Shoeman. They are converting it to an all electric unit. In addition to the electrical work, Shoeman said the Lake Tulane project will involve additional plumb-i ng and carpentry work with the installation of a new tub and bathroom fixtures, flooring, lighting, air conditioning and cabinetry. The crew also will be doing p ainting inside and out. Shoeman said the Housing A uthority bought materials, while t he HBI Veterans Program provides the work. T he hands-on experience is done under the supervision of both HBIi nstructors and a general contractor for the Housing Authority to make certain all the work is done correctly and is up to code. Shoeman said the HBI crew also e arned a paycheck as well as job experience with their work. T he project is a joint effort between the HBI, Heartland W orkforce and the City of Avon Park. Project to give Avon Park firefighters new sleeping quarters Community Briefs Continued on A5 B y BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentS EBRING In making a presentation to the H ighlands County commission Tuesday morning, Commissioner JimB rooks asked TDC Executive Director John Scherlacher about how t he TDCs room verification system works. S cherlacher explained that event organizers set up arrangement with a host hotel or other lodging facility to helpk eep track of the number of so-called heads in beds generated by a specific event. He said many times, participants will be offered a special dealt hat then is used to quantify the numbers of visit ors who stay locally in conjunction with an individual event. Scherlacher said those numbers then are spot-checked byT DC staff. If there are variances, he said, event coordinators would be contacted to determine a more accurate accounting. H owever, Sherlacher said the TDC also provides some wiggle room. e also look at it as not all the athletes or participants that stay in Highlands County will check in and say where they are from, he said. So we give a slight leeway on some of the numbers that come in. If they are off by a couple, we will give them the benefit of the doubt. That was news to a number of commissioners, including Don Elwell, who also chairs the Tourist Development Commission. This is the first time I have heard of leeway given, Elwell said. Is there a percentage that we use? Although there was no hard and fast rule, Scherlacher said it would be a few rooms. Commissioner Ron Handley agreed with Elwell, calling for the TDC to set parameters or percentages on how much leeway should be allowed. little bitis pretty vague. Everybodys interpretation of that can vary, Handley said. Brooks again asked whether it was the TDC or event organizers who carried the responsibility of determining hotel stays. Many times they are booked in under an event TDC says leeway given in counting visitors C ommissioners want system to be m ore specific See TDC, A5 N ews-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY (From left, standing) Sydney Hitt; Christina Acosta; Austin Westergom; Lindsey Reck; Evan Reed; Corey Adams.

C M Y K On the one hand, the question is how to keep the nationi nformed, without putting anyone in jeopardy. On the other hand, the q uestion is how to protect the nation from over-reaching g overnment using secrecy to hide illegal actions, inefficiency or the embarrassmento f mistakes. Which brings us to the gray a rea of leaking information. One persons patriotic whistleblower is another persons traitor. The pressfirst and overw helming duty is to keep citizens informed. W hile the News-Sun has a policy of not using anonymous informants, we believet he press has a responsibility to listen to every source of information carefully and verify what they say. W hat concerns us is the Obama administrations increasingly drastic responsest o leaks, leakers and the newspapers or news organizat ions that print them. Take the Justice Departments recent secrets ubpoenas for two months of Associated Press telephone r ecords. No one specific individual was targeted. Instead, the department demanded the cell, office and home phone records of multiple reporters,a n editor and the Associated Presss general phone numb ers in Washington D.C., New York City and Hartford, Conn. W e agree with the many editorials around the country sounding a warning about this kind of official action. The subpoenas were so broad and unfocused they violated theF irst Amendment of the cons titution. In addition, we worry the intensive investigation may frighten future whistleblowers into silence. Which brings us back to t he necessity of accurate, timely information. As a profession, the press did not do well in the months before the invasion of Iraq. Essential questions were never asked. Without those answers, the nation was caught unawares when Operation Iraqi Freedom spun out of control, at the cost of thousands of lives. Better information wouldh ave led to better decisions. W e, the press, must do our jobs. Obviously we need to p rotect the men and women who face danger working on our behalf, but equally obvi-o us the American people need t o know what is really going on. A s we say in the newsr oom, we are not the attack dog nor the lap dog we are the watch dog. W e are supposed to bark in the night especially when w e hear noises in the yard. Abattle over information has existed ever since societies divided into rulers and subjects, even after the rulers became elected representatives and the subjects became citizens, empowered to choose who leads them.

Such is the case of Cindy, a friend of minew ho shared the story of her teenage love that was found again. It was June 1947, 66 years ago.C indys family stayed at their summer cottage in N isswa, Minn., a small town outside of Brainerd, Minn. That summer, ah orseback ride and a chance meeting with a y oung man who lived down the road led to a young love that has been renewed. Cindy remembers taking a daily ride on her horse,F licka, when this young man saw her coming down t he road and engaged in a conversation with her. One meeting led to anoth-e r and voila ... it was true puppy love. That love w ould remain for 66 years and is still going strong, she said. S he lived in Minneapolis and had three years left in school. The two dated as m uch as possible, butbecause Bud lived 130 m iles away in Brainerd, the winter months made it hard to get together.They stayed in touch through letters and phone calls, but the sum-m ers were extra special because they were together again. Bud graduatedtwo years before Cindy. He joined the Air Force for four years, knowing that Cindys dadi nsisted that she go on to college after high school g raduation. ou know, back then you either joined or were drafted. Bud knew I was going to college, so itm ade sense. Now that was some sad goodbyes at the train station the dayhe left, Cindy said. Cindy worked a year a fter high school graduation, then went off to Rollins College. During that first year,Bud came tosee Cindy for aweekend visit. She remembers the hours of reminiscingmade the time go so fast and beforethey knew it, he had to go back to the air base. After many hugs and goodbye kisses, they wished each othertheir best and agreed to always stay in touch.She said in a way they knew they would be going in differ-e nt directions. He wasnt ready to get out of the service, yet, and he certainly wasnt r eady to get married and settle down. He didnt know how long I was going to stay in college, Cindy said,a dding she went only two of the four years she origin ally planned. The two stayed in touch until she married. He even-t ually married as well. They each had three child ren. Cindy, her sister and their husbands went to Nisswa in 1994. While visiting the old stompingg rounds, the sisters went to the lake cottage where so m any summers had been spent. Cindy also had an opportunity to talk to herf riends sister. She learned that Bud was living in S outh Carolina. I just wanted to know that he was OK, she said. W ith that question answered, life went on. Four years later, Cindy b ecame a widow and continued on with her lifein S ebring. Then in January 2012, Bud was widowed. Eventuallythe emails began to flow betweent hem. This past March, Cindy celebrated her 80th birthday. Her sons decided to give her a surprise birthday party. Bud had planned a visit, n ot knowing then about the surprise party. Cindy m ethim at the train station. One head nod to each other froma distance signified the recognition and the gettogether began. W ith that wonderful first hugin many, many years,they knew their love had never gone away. Thus started another chapter int he 66-year-old relationship ofCindy and Bud. I was a late arrival to Cindys surprise birthday party, but I had the pleasure of seeing Cindy with her reunited beau. Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor of the News-Sun.

With 294 embassies and consular o ffices around the world, the availability of seal team 6 and a marine extraction force is out of touch with reality. At best our consulate in Benghazi was almost 350 miles from our embassy inT ripoli and well beyondthe reach of significant help in reasonable time. Sort of what the Aussies might call the back of the beyond. Libya is still a backwater. S till soldiering on, Darrell Issa and his minions continue their inquiry, now attacking the product of the experts, Ambassador Pickering and Admiral Mullen, fly specking their detailed report in desperation to find something, anything to substantiate their preconceptions that some error; any error must be attributed to the President and former Secretary of State. Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidA different point of viewEditor: Just because a group uses the words ea Party or Patriot in their name, this does not mean they are necessarily a legitimate, conservative group. They might, in fact, be a fraudulent group, just preying on people who might be attracted to those words. I once did a series of newspaper articles (for this paper requests for money for so-called but fake charities.One of the most common ploys used by these fraudulent groups is to use words that will play on the emotional weaknesses of people by using such words as cancer, children, diabetes, etc. to make themselves look more credible and more likely to get money from certain groups of people. Therefore, it seems to me that the IRS was doing a very positive thing by more closely scrutinizing groups who chose to use words in their name that might prey on the emotions of those who might be more vulnerable to these words. You would think the Conservative groups and/or the Republican Party would be thankful for a closer scrutiny of groups to make sure they were legitimate, and not just using these words to try to attract their own people fraudulently. Judy Barnhart SebringWhy no investigation into Bushs war?Editor: We now have a republican congressional investigation, better known as a witch hunt, into the tragedy in Benghazi. This is typical republican hypocrisy and clearly an attempt by the republicans to discredit Hillary Clinton. Question: Why no investigation into Bushs war in Iraq? Iraq has cost the United States 4,488 dead, over 100,000 injured and more than $2 trillion to date. Here is an abbreviated synopsis of events leading up to that war. Jan. 26, 1998: Project for a New American Century (PNACfounded by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Jeb Bush and others demand President Clinton undertake the removal of Saddam Husseins regime. Aug. 6, 2001: CIAofficer flies to Crawford, Texas to call Bushs attention to Al Qaeda with a Presidential Daily Briefing warning, Bin Laden determined to strike in U.S. The CIA documents Al Qaeda activities consistent with hijacking preparations. Bush ignores the report. Sept. 11, 2001. March, 13, 2002: Bush stated on Osama: Ill repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him. July 2002: Gen. Franks secretly requests $700 million for war preparations. Sept. 25, 2002: Bush You cant distinguish between Al Qaeda and Saddam when you talk about the war on terror Oct. 4, 2002: The National Intelligence Agency produces classified 25-page document titled Iraqs Weapons of Mass Destruction Programs. It says Saddam has them and then omits dissenting views contained in the document. Dec. 26, 2002: Classified Defense Intelligence Agency assessment of Iraqs chemical weapons concludes: there is no reliable information on whether Iraq is producing and stockpiling chemical weapons. On that same day in a Rose Garden speech, Bush states: The Iraqi regime possesses biological and chemical weapons. Sept. 25, 2002: Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld calls link between Iraq and Al Qaeda accurate and not debatable. Nov. 14, 2002: Rumsfeld handicaps war length: Five days or five months, but it certainly isnt going to last any longer than that. Dec. 6, 2002: Bush fires top economic adviser Larry Lindsey for saying the war might cost $100 billion. Jan. 7. 2003: Rumsfeld Iraq poses a serious and mounting threat to our country Jan. 9, 2003: UNs Hans Blix says his inspectors have examined 106 locations in Iraq and have not found any smoking guns and there is no evidence that Iraq had revived its nuclear weapons program. March 20, 2003: The war in Iraq, based on lies, begins. May 15, 2013: No investigation. Why not?

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK South Florida State College art stu-d ents, Emmie Periera and Jared Turner, recently collabo rated on a community service project to design a T-shirt and program cover for theH ighlands County Sheriffs Office (HCSOThe designs w ere created for the U.S. Police Canine Associations regional certification trials t hat were hosted by the Highlands County Sheriffs Office, May 20-23. This is the first year in which the certification trialsa re held in Highlands County and in which the HCSO competes. I approached Mollie Doctrow with the idea ands pecialty we needed, said Highlands County Sheriff's L t. Jim McGann, who is in charge of HighlandsC ountys canine unit. I presented a direction of what we needed, and the students creatively produced the pieces themselves. D octrow, SFSCs Museum of Florida Art and Culture (MOFAC) curator and graphic design instructor, suggested Pereira and Turner for thep roject. They are both very accomplished and dependable students, she said. Periera is a MOFAC intern, while Turner works for Cathy Futral, SFSC art professor. Jared has demonstrated expertise in graphics, and Emmie is really a terrific photographer, Doctrow said. The T-shirt and program cover feature the HCSO canines Ozzie, Ringo, and Remco. Periera photographed each dog individually in portrait shots and action shots. This was the first time she photographed animals professionally. Several of Perieras photographs were exhibited in the 2013 SFSC Student Art Show at MOFAC and the sheriffs department intends to place the photos int heir office. Jared is a pro at graphic designs and made the process of taking a photo and changing it into a vector look soe asy, Periera said. I think the photos created the foundation for the piece while the graphic designs made it all work as one solid design. I couldnt have asked for better pieces, McGann said. This real world experience provided the students with an opportunity to work directly with the service dogs and sheriffs deputies to create professional artwork, Doctrow said. The students now have professional artwork to include in their portfolios. As a thank you, the Highlands County Sheriffs Department will feature a promotional ad in the events program.

SFSC art students help with USPCA event more and more law enforcement agencies acquired dogs. The USPCAm ission is to create universal training standards. Twenty-nine K-9 officers and their dogs are here from all over Florida, anda s far away as New Orleans. Jose Bosque is the president of the USPCAs Region 1 and a LakelandP olice Department K-9 handler himself. Over 70 agencies in our r egion now have K-9 teams, he said. Thats the highest number in 10y ears. The single most important factor, he added i s that, you must have complete control of your dog at all times. There are more agencies with dogs now, but there a re fewer certifications due to budget cuts, said Ron Bowling, a retired K-9 trainer and a judge at the competition. I n a series of trials, dogs and handlers must show proficiency at heeling and obeying sit, down and stay commands, from up close and from a distance. D ogs must show agility over five different obstacles. They must locate and retrieve two items of evidence within three minutes.T hey have four minutes to locate a suspect hidden in one of six boxes. To make it more difficult, the same suspect moves from oneb ox to another in between contestants, leaving his or her scent behind. The dogh as to differentiate between the scent and the person. Dogs have to show they cans top a pursuit at command and return to their handlers. T he most crucial tests involve criminal apprehension, when a handler musth ave total control of the dog. Dogs have to bring d own running suspects, with and without gunfire. Among several components, a dog has to have the ability to release on com-m and, while also showing they can protect their handler during an assault without a command. Five judges evaluate a teams performance. The high and low scores are di scarded; the middle three averaged to arrive at a score. The public is welcome t o t urn out and watch the action at the SportsC omplex, 100 Sheriffs Tower Road (accessible only from Martin Luther Kind Boulevard). The exciting criminal apprehension without gunf ire trial be held today fro m 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. T hursday starting at 8 a.m., the dogs have to apprehend a suspect under g unfire, and show they can p rotect their handlers when t hey are under attack. For those without the time to attend the competition itself, there will be a d emonstration of K-9 abilities at the Sebring High School football field at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Workshop focuses on enhancing local businesses Avon Park Relay for Life Follow the News-Sun on www.twitter.com/thenewssun www.facebook.com/newssun By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Friday released the states unemployment numbers for the month of April. The report shows that of the 41,535 people listed in Highlands Countys work force last month, only 2,905 were looking for work through the government agency that translated to a 7 percent unemployment rate The number was down incrementally from the 7.3 March joblessness figure. At that time, there were only 41,344 people listed in the workforce here. Of that number, there were 3,011 individuals listed as looking for work. That differed significantly from April of 2012. That report indicated there were 42,330 people in the county's workforce with 3,519 in an active, trackable job search. The unemployment rate at that time was set at 8.3 percent. But figuring the real unemployment rate is a moving target. The unemployment and job growth rates are estimates, which are primarily based on surveys created and mandated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in cooperation with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The unemployment rates released to the public is derived from Florida household surveys conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau under contract with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The job growth rate is derived from Florida employer surveys conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Both estimates are revised on a monthly basis. In addition, these estimates are benchmarked (revised ally based on actual counts from Floridas Re-employment Assistance tax records and other data Officials say the differing labor force numbers were based several different criteria. State statisticians first look at the civilian labor force, which includes persons aged 16 and older who were not institutionalized nor on active military duty and were either employed or unemployed. The definition of employment includes those who had done any work as paid employees, worked in their own business or farm, or worked 15 hours or more as unpaid workers in a family business. It also includes those who had a job but did not work due to a temporary absence. Each employed person was counted only once, even if they had more than one job. The unemployment number includes those who did not have a job during the reference period but who were available for work and made specific efforts to find a job sometime during the four weeks prior to the reference period. The unemployment rate then is figured as the percent of the civilian labor force that was unemployed. Estimates of unemployment include all people who fit those definitions and are actively seeking a job. The unemployed include job losers, job leavers, new entrants, and re-entrants into the labor force. Officials said unemployment claimants were what they termed a subset of the total unemployed. Those that have exhausted benefits are still considered unemployed if they are seeking employment. Statewide, Floridas seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate stood at 7.2 percent for the month of April. The available labor force in the Sunshine State was set last month at 9,411,000 with some 680,000 listed in a quantifiable job search. Trade, transportation and utilities showed the greatest gain in job creation along with the leisure, hospitality, private education and health care industries. Manufacturing and governmental jobs reportedly saw losses in April. Unemployment numbers continue downward trend

The internationally recognized program is taking elementary institutions by storm boasting more than1 ,200 Leader In Me schools working to become a part of the movement w orldwide, according to the programs website. LCE is one of several in H ighlands County that is nearly complete with its t wo-year-long initiative to become what is known as a Lighthouse School. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, t he Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, andi ncreased engagement among teachers and pare nts, the website states. The seven habits, known to students as the Covey Habits, help outline what students and administratorss hould be doing in order to maintain progress to become a LIM school. Afun-filled day of learning and exploring will takep lace at LCE Thursday, when children will demonstrate the things they have learned through the Covey Habits. Each attendee will be given time in the classroom to observe the ways LakeC ountry incorporates Stephen Coveys Habits of Highly Effective People,t hrough the Leader in Me program, a LCE press r elease said. Aluncheon will also be held during the event featur-i ng items from the Taste of Lake Placid program. T he Lake Country Elementary Leadership Day will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday.

Lake Country creating leaders By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Fred Wild Elementary School will be g etting a makeover of sorts today thanks to employees from Belk Inc. and officials of the Points of Light foundat ion. S ebring store manager Lupe James said this will be the first of a number of diff erent projects they hope to d o locally. e will have 8 to 10 employees there tomorrow morning from 9-11, she said. On tap will be the construction and painting of a b ookcase and a number of picnic tables. The group also will decorate some reading carpets for use by children at the school.Later, James said s he hoped to come back and have makeovers for a couple of teachers at the schools. How those educators would be selected has yet to be determined. The project is part of Belks 125th anniversary, w ith 125 days dedicated to service. Chain-wide, Belk employees will paint classrooms, build bookcases, beautify s chool grounds, plant gardens, update playgrounds, install educational murals and other such projects at schools in their areas. Points of Light, the largest organization in the world d edicated to volunteer service, will help lead the effort. Belk employees to help spruce up Fred Wild circle plan, which was Option 6 Revised, will use land that belongs to the college, which would be available without cost through an easement. The college would grant the right of way to the county but wants to maintain control of the use of the center of the circle for signs and landscaping. Gavarette said that as long as the items in the circle dont affect sight lines and become a safety hazard, that would be fine. I like the idea of the circle and like the fact that its going to route traffic north without entering the circle, Commissioner Jim Brooks said. Brooks also likes that the circle concept would negate the need for a traffic signal. Like the Sebring Circle, traffic on the roundabout will have right of way, Gavarette said, which is how traffic circles are supposed to work. He told the board that plans are in progress to get all traffic circles in the county most notably the two on Sun N Lake Boulevard in Sebring and Devane Circle in Lake Placid to use the same traffic rules. Joe Wright, vice chairman of the SFSC District Board of Trustees, told the board the college is thrilled with the new idea and commended the engineering department for its work on the project. What a pleasant surprise that we werent wrestling over one or two options but had multiple options, he said. This one jumped off the page. In response to a question from Rhonda Beckman, head of Ridge Area Arc, Gavarette said plans still called for Baltimore Street to be closed off from access to Memorial Drive. Arc has multiple facilities on both sides of Baltimore Street. Previous discussions involved a double-Y intersection that would have made it difficult for drivers to get from the Parkway onto College Drive. While commissioners voiced their approval of the plan, no action was taken or direction given at the meeting. Continued from A1 County eyes circle at College Drive The process takes advantage o f the fact that there are some plants that may be used as a sort of solar-driven pump, which can extract and concentrate particular elementsf rom the environment. Proponents describe the process as an environmentally friendly and cost-effective technology. The Fisheating Creek Basin extends from west-central Highlands County just south of State Road 66 southward into the northern portion of Glades County, and eastward towards Lake Okeechobee. It includes Fisheating Creek, the C-41 and C-41A canals and Indian Prairie between Lakes Istokpoga and Okeechobee. The Boys & Girls Club was looking for $12,000 from the state for renovation of a three-story building on Pomegranate Avenue in S ebring to be used for their offices and thrift store. That rehab work is slated to be done by workers from the A von Park Youth Academy as p art of their partnership with the Home Builders Institute, which teaches young men construction trades such as carpentry, plumbing and electrical skills. Other area communities werent so lucky. For instance, Frostproof lost out on a $150,000 allocation for new generators at its Main Street Water Plant and funding for a water storage tank. The biggest hit for Frostproof was $500,000 that had been requested for workforce infrastructure for the city. Meanwhile, another proposed $200,000 for a dental clinic in Lake Wales fell to the governors veto pen. Hardee Countys Regional Wastewater Service Improvement, a proposed $500,000 allocation, also was c ut from the budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The list represented about two-thirds of $107 million in projects suggested by exclus ion by Florida TaxWatch. I n his response to the news, Florida TaxWatch President and Chief Executive Officer Dominic Calabro said,It is clear from the high number of vetoed projects that the Governor carefully scrutinized all of the Budget Turkeys TaxWatch identified, which is the intent of the Turkey Watch Report. The budget processes that TaxWatch relies upon to identify Turkeys are important assurances that taxpayer dollars are being appropriated to the highest and best use. For a list of those items on Gov. Scotts veto list, go to www.flgov.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/VetoList-2013.pdf/. C ontinued from A1 Local projects keep funding Associated PressMOORE, Okla. (APThe parents and guardians stood in the muddy grasso utside a suburban Oklahoma City church, listening as someone with a b ullhorn called out the names of children who were being dropped off survivors of a deadly tornado that barreledt hrough their community. For many families, the ordeal ended i n bear hugs and tears of joy as loved ones reunited. Others were left to wait in the darkness, hoping for good news while fearing the worst. At least seven children are among the 2 4 reported dead so far in Moore, the Oklahoma City suburb ravaged by M ondays tornado that packed winds of up to 200 mph. The twister reduced one elementary school to a heaping moundo f rubble and heavily damaged another while also flattening block after block o f homes. Officials earlier said more than 50 people had died, including 20 children. The medical examiners officer evised that death toll Tuesday morning, saying some victims were maybe counted twice in the initial confusion after the s torm. At St. Andrews United Methodist C hurch, parents stared into the distance as they waited, some holding the hands of young children who were missing siblings. Tonya Sharp and Deanna Wallace sat a t a table in the churchs gymnasium waiting for their teenage daughters. As Sharp and Wallace spoke, a line of students walked in. W allace spotted her 16-year-old daughter, who came quickly her way and jumped into her mothers arms,p ushing her several steps backward in the process. But Sharp didnt see her daughter, a 17-year-old who has epileps y. She worried her daughter hadnt taken her medicine. I dont know where shes at, Sharp said. Later, she went to speak to officials who helped her register so she could be notified as soon as her daughter was found. S helli Smith had to walk miles to find her children. She was reunited with her 14-year-old daughter, Tiauna, around 5 p.m. Monday, but hadnt yet seen her 1 6-year-old son, TJ, since he left for school that morning. TJs phone had died, but he borrowed a classmates phone to tell his mother where he was. However, Smith couldnt get to him due to the roadblocks. So she p arked her car and started walking. It took her three hours, but a little a fter sunset, she found him. She grabbed her son and squeezed him in a tight hug that lasted for several seconds before letting go. TJ hugged his sister, and then hugged his mom again. T he family had a long walk back to their car and then home, but she said she didnt mind. Tornado death toll adjusted down M CT An injured person is pulled from the rubble following a devastating tornado in Moore, Okla., on Monday.

Sports Talk hands out more awards N ews-Sun staff reportTwo Sebring athletes extended their track season a little bit longer as state medalist Taylor Tubbs and state qualfier Brian Dixon attended the Golden South Track and Field Classic in Orlando this past weekend. Drawing track and field athletes from all parts of Florida and throughout the South, the meet was certainly a step up in competition. But the Blue Streak duo was up to the task as both took top-four finishes in their respective events. Dixon, competing in the 200-meter dash, came in with a seed time of 21.72 and amid the amped up level of the field, the Sebring junior took nearly one-half second off that time to 21.25 and qualify for the finals. In the finale, the field was running into a slight headwind and Dixons time fell by .08 seconds, but he held on to the fourth-place seed he came into the final with. Tubbs, who finished an eyelash behind Ft. Myers Emily Edwards in the 1,600meter run at the State Finals less than three weeks ago, would again face Edwards this time in the mile-run. s virtually the same distance, but the mile is actually nine meters longer, Tubbs explained. Tubbs seed time of 4:56 from earlier this season was 1,600 meters, and she nearly matched it, despite the extra distance, again breaking five minutes and coming in with a time of 4:57.90. But the Emily cursegot the better of her as Emily Stevens took first in 4:56.45 and Edwards was second at 4:56.67, barely more than one second ahead of Tubbs. Streaks shine at Golden South

That breeze from the Atlantic, however, eased up as the bottom of the third commenced, bringing the ominous clouds ever closer. The Glisson offense, likewise, started to move more fervently. Brevin Gunn got it started by beating out a bunt single and moved to second when Billy Green was hit by a pitch. Gomez had a prudent eye and worked a walk to loadt he bases, which looked like t hey might be cleared when Seth Cannady sent one toward the deep reaches of center field. Helenas Chris Camido, though, had other ideas as he raced back and made a sliding catch just short of the w arning track. The runners on first and second had to make a mad scramble back to their bases, though Gunn had alertly stayed on third and was able to tag up and score to make ita 2-0 game. Another diving effort of a Josh Crouch fly to right was almost made, though upon impact with the ground, the ball was jarred from thef ielders glove, allowing Green and Gomez to come in. Kyle Helms and Patrick then followed with consecutive RBI singles, to push the lead to 6-0, before the Lake Placid squad brought Chance Bertram on in relief to retire the side. But the damage was done, both on the scoreboard and int he skies above. As the top of the fourth was getting underway, that lightning flash lit up the field, prompting the homeplate umpire to immediately call a halt to the action. Aglance at the radar showed the oncoming storm and after a brief discussion, ending the game where its tood was agreed upon and the only race left was to get home before the downpour commenced.

Dixie win for Glissons By MARK LONG A ssociated PressJACKSONVILLE Cast off by New England, Brandon Deaderick and Kyle Love are trying to catch on in Jacksonville. The Jaguars claimed both defensive linemen offw aivers last week, giving them a fresh start with a rebuilding team that desperately wants to improve its pass rush. It remains to be seen whether they will fit in coach Gus Bradleys defense. But the Jaguars regard the claims as low-risk moves that could pay dividends for a team that failed to addressi ts defensive line in the NFL draft. Deaderick became expendable after the Patriots signed Tommy Kelly and Armond Armstead in free agency. Love was released after b eing diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. They found comfort in l anding together in Jacksonville, even though its clear they will have to fight for roster spots. Jaguars claim Deaderick, Love By FRED GOODALL Associated Press TAMPA Josh Freeman is back on the practice field, feeling good about himself and the future of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The fifth-year pro whos entering the final season of his contract said Monday that he still considers the Bucs his team to guide to the playoffs, despite the clubs decision to draft another young quarterback to potentially take his place. Just importantly, coach Greg Schiano reiterated Freeman is his starter before making another attempt to dispel what he said is a misconception about his desire to increase competition at virtually every position, including quarterback Freeman became Tampa Bays first 4,000-yard passer a year ago, however his inconsistency contributed to a 7-9 finish and energized speculation about his future with the team. Schiano reiterates Freeman is Bucs QB Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS Pacers forward David West is expected to play Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals at Miami, despite an injured right leg. Team doctors held West out of Mondays practice with what coach Frank Vogel described as a calf strain or lower leg strain. He did shoot around with his teammates after practice ended.

Clubs & Organizations Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Barry Hummel was the guest speaker on May 16 at the Lake Placid Noon RotaryC lubs luncheon. He spoke about being tobacco free. Smoking is one of the biggest public health problems currently facing theU nited States. Tobacco-related illnesses cause more than 400,000 deaths each year; this accounts for two-thirds of all preventable deaths in theU nited States.That total represents one out of every t wo smokers. Currently, more than 1 million children and teens( between the ages of 12 and 17) become regular tobacco u sers each year, which accounts for over 85 percent of new smokers.Currently, more girls start smoking each year than boys, usingt obacco as a means of controlling their weight. T he majority of new tobacco users start between the ages of 12 and 17 beforei t is even legal to purchase the products. T eenagers who smoke cite the depiction of smoking in movies (52 percenta dvertising (34 percent the top two reasons that they decided to start s moking.Peer pressure and parental influence were m uch less important. Smokers were not asked a bout their smoking during 85 percent of routine office visits with their primary care physicians; those same patients mistook this asa pproval of their smoking habit (if the doctor isnt w orried about it, it must be OK). The Quit Doc Research a nd Education Foundation has been started by a group o f physicians who believe that they can find a better approach to patients that area ddicted to nicotine, and prevent another generation of young Americans from b eing sucked in by the false promises of the tobacco i ndustry. Did you know that if you h ave an employee that smokes, they are more likely to call in sick, and take more breaks (and some employees even pay themf or these breaks) than an employee that is tobacco f ree? On the average, a smoker takes four 10minute breaks a day. Howm any employers pay employees to smoke? It is h ard to tell, but at least two Rotarians said that they do.

One of Pauls first art projects was in first grade where he created a life-size alligator out of papier mach. He was hooked with nature and art after that. Paul studied art under Muriel Gose, a Fine Art graduate from Hunters College in New York, and her daughter Judy Gose, an art educator from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg. Paul has a great imagination and it is portrayed in his art work. Volunteering at the Highlands Hammock State Park for three years gave him a great respect for nature and the role of art in nature and how its all interconnected. Last summer at the Archbold Biological Station he taught children art projects based around plants and wildlife from the Florida Highlands Ridge. Paul has received numerous art awards, and has shown his work through the Highlands Art Alliance and the Lake Placid Country Fair. Janet Robinson, married to Paul Sr., and mother of Paul Jr., received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ohio State University in 1984. She hashada creative predisposition from a young age, when as a child living in Long Island, N.Y., she sent little drawings to her grandmother. Her grandmother was an art teacher, who painted beautiful works in oils while sitting on her porch on Sebrings Lake Jackson. She encouraged Janet to pursue her art. After graduation Janet began a life with a varied spectrum of interests. She taught elementary education for the deaf and visually impaired. Later she moved to St. Petersburg. There Janet began a career in the airline industry as she had always wanted an opportunity to travel.Hertravels left her little time to paint but did provide her with a lot of insight and respectfor all manner of art. When visiting poorer areas of the world,Janet found their art reflected their culture and deep feelings. She has displayed her work at the Don Cesar Gallery in St. Petersburg Beach, St. Pete Beach Art Festival, through the Highlands Art Alliance and the Lake Placid Country Fair. Two years ago, Janet moved to Sebring. She shares, I was very fortunate to be accepted as a member of the Caladium Arts and Crafts Co-op. I find much enjoyment in painting and drawing. I try to be spontaneous painting without any inhibitions. I have learned from the many talented artists at the Co-op. I encourage everyone to experience the wonderful world of art. Paul and Janet would like to invite everyone to visit the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative to see the works of the many talented local artists and to open your eyes to the beautiful world of art.

The latest voyage of the starship E nterprise fell short of its predecessor, 2009s Star Trek, which opened with $75.2 million. Since premiering Wednesday in huge-screen IMAX theaters ande xpanding Thursday to general cinemas, Into Darkness has pulled in $84.1 million, well below distribu-t or Paramounts initial forecast of $100 million. The film added $40 million overseas, pushing its total to$ 80.5 million since it began rolling out internationally a week earlier. T he Star Trek sequel bumped Iron Man 3 down to second place after two weekends on top. Robert Downey Jrs superhero saga took in $35.2 million domestically to lift itsr eceipts to $337.1 million. Overseas, Iron Man 3 added $40.2 million, raising its international total to $736.2 million and its worldwide tally to nearly $1.1 bil-l ion. While Iron Man 3 and Into Darkness did well overseas, they were outmatched by the debut of Baz Luhrmanns The GreatG atsby, which followed its domestic debut a week earlier with a wide rollout internationally. Gatsbyp ulled in $42.1 million overseas, coming in a bit ahead of both Iron Man 3 and Into Darkness. D omestically, Gatsby held up well at No. 3 with $23.4 million, l ifting its total to $90.2 million. In todays Hollywood of bigger, better sequels, follow-up films often outdo the box office of their predecessors, as each Iron Mans equel has done. While Into Darkness earned good reviews and is getting strong word-of-mouth from fans, the film did not quite measure up to the opening weekendo f director J.J. AbramsStar Trek reboot from four years ago, at least domestically. Star Trekremains a fan-boy movie. It doesnt seem to have thes ame kind of cross-over appeal as say an Iron Manor some of these others, said Paul Dergarabedian,a n analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. s a very specific brand, but I t hink the general public would love this movie, because its such an a ction movie. But to get a hundredmillion-plus opening weekend, unless youre Twilight,you really have to cross over to all audiences. Paramount points out that overs eas business is up in many markets, though, so worldwide, the sequel is off to a better start. Because of the nature of the franchise, because of how manym ovies have been made and the various forms of the TVshows, Im not sure that Star Trekgoes by the rules of normal sequels. I think each movie stands on its own, becausei s a unique franchise, said Don Harris, Paramounts head of distribution. My goal was always that we grow the franchise. Were clearly seeing by todays numbers that them ovie is being embraced on a worldwide basis in a way weve n ever seen before. Harris said that domestically, Into Darkness finished its first weekend 6 percent ahead of revenues for 2009s Star Trek, whichg ot a head-start with $4 million in Thursday night previews to give it a $79.2 million haul through the first Sunday. But Into Darkness had a full d ay of screenings Thursday plus its Wednesday IMAX business. Unlike the first movie, which played only in 2-D, the sequel also had the benefit of 3-D screenings that cost af ew dollars more. Yet even with the 3-D upcharge and the earlier debut, it came awayw ith just $4.9 million more than its predecessor through Sunday. Still, its a solid starting place for t he movie to live long and prosper at theaters. Star Trek does $70.6M but falls short of studio hopes
C M Y K Associated PressIts just a quick kiss, but its a long step forward for Archie Comicsonly openly gay character Kevin Keller. T he Riverdale teen finds his life turned upside down after locking lips with his boyfriend, Devon, in Pop Tates diner, drawing the ire of at least one disapproving Riverdale mom. The woman gets very offended and kind of pitchesa bit of a fit, said Dan Parent, who writes and draws the issue, Kevin Keller No. 10 that is released Aug. 7. Kevin is kind of used to that, but Veronica records the w hole thing and of course uploads it to the Riverdale equivalent of YouTube and that starts a bit of a debate, said Parent. F or Archie Comics its a bit of art imitating life. Parent said he wrote the story after efforts to remove a comic magazine showing Keller getting married drew at complaints. One Million Moms, a project of The American Family Association, asked Toys R Us not to display Life With Archie No. 16 near its checkout aisles. Toys R Us d id not, and the issue went on to sell out its print run. Parent called the new story a playful poke at the protest. K eller debuted in eronica No. 202 in September 2010. It resulted in Archie Comicsfirst-ever second printing. It was quickly followed by a four-issue miniseries and the current monthly title. Publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the fact that any kiss is being shown in the pages of an Archie Comics book is a step in and of itself. D earAbby: My husband and I recently learned that our sister-in-laws adult son from a prior marriage, Charlie, is now Claire. My husband and I have three sons, ages 2 to 10 years. This sister-in-law expressed concern that our 10-year-old would remember Charlie and say something i nappropriate. Shes demanding that we lie to him and tell him Claire is a nother daughter we have never met. My husband and I do not l ie to our children. We feel it i s best to explain to all three of our sons that Charlie hasd ecided to make a lifestyle c hange and let them ask q uestions if they choose. What is your opinion? Truth-Telling Parents D earParents: I dont believe in lying to childrene ither, but before you tell your sons that Charlie decide d to make a lifestyle change, I urge you to do some research about gender identity. It is not as simple o n any level as changing an aspect of ones lifestyle. It is about who Claire truly feels s he is inside. I f your oldest boy remembers Charlie, he should k now that some people feel from an early age that theyw ere born into the wrong body the wrong gender.F ortunately, there is help for i t in the form of medication a nd surgery. He should be t old that the problem has b een solved and Charlie is n ow Claire. When the y ounger children are older, they can be told the same thing in an age-appropriate m anner if the subject comes up. DearAbby: My childrens f ather died of cancer about a year ago. As a result, they receive Social Security benefits as his surviving depend-e nts. He had no life insurance, so this is all they have. T he problem is nearly everyone who finds out they receive this money becomesa ngry and jealous. Abby, these benefits came from his e arnings and are meant to assist me in supporting the c hildren he is no longer here to help with. We try not to mention the money, buts ometimes it comes up in conversation. H ow can people be jealous about money received from such a tragedy? Would theyr eally want to lose a family member in exchange for c ash? Please ask people to be more considerate in a situation where a child has paid a far greater price than any check in the mail couldc over. Surviving Mom in Illinois DearMom: Im sorry for your loss. People, particular-l y in a difficult economy, can become jealous if they t hink someone is getting something for nothing. (And depending upon howd ysfunctional a family is, they might indeed be willing t o lose a family member in exchange for cash.) I m passing your sentiments along, but my advice to you is to stop discussing finances unless there is a specific reason why the per son youre talking to must have that information. DearAbby: My motheri n-law picks her nose in front of others by covering her finger with a tissue and then digging deep into her nose. She claims this is acceptable behavior event hough the rest of us are grossed out. She refuses to s top unless somebody like you tells her otherwise. Please help with this. I h ave a 7-year-old daughter who sees her, and I dont w ant her to think this is proper behavior in public. Grossed Out DearGrossed Out: Its one thing to use a tissue fora gentle nose-blow, and quite another to use it as camouf lage for a major excavation. That your MILis grossing out those around her shouldb e evidence enough that what shes doing is bad mann ers. It is showing lack of consideration for those around her.

We travel a lot, but not often just for pleasure. We decided to attend the I Can Do It Conference in Atlanta.This could be considered continuing education for all of us because the foundation theme of the conference falls in line with Finally Loving Yourself. We laughed and cried. We found a new use for the purple rags. They are a great hanky for those purple puddles. It was so much fun to be together. After Atlanta we headed to Fort Campbell to speak to the military spouses. I love to meet the husbands and wives of our brave soldiers. We have never had such great audience participation during our question and answer sessions. After we left Fort Campbell, we stopped to have dinner with an old friend from my hometown. On the way home we decided to not listen to music. This was not a conscious decision. The subject of having a pajama day came up. This is a foreign concept to me. Since 1999 I have been getting up and getting dressed to lace up shoes within 15 minutes of my feet hitting the floor. I have not stayed in my pajamas unlessI was too sick to get out of the bed. I have not ever been that sick. If I get up, I get dressed. We knew we were going to get home very late. Nikki and Michele were already planning their pajama day. We finally go into bed about 3 a.m. I slept until 10:30 and decided to stay in my pajamas until noon. Wow, this is so hard to do. As I am writing this I am twitching. It feels uncomfortable to me. At noon I went back to the bathroom to take a shower and get dressed. I thought well, Ill just wait to get dressed. Here it is 2:30 p.m. and I still have on my pajamas. I keep checking the front door to make sure no one is coming to our home. Now I just realized that I have not taken my daily supplements. The bed is not made and my bathroom has not been swished and swiped.I forgot my coffee and the floors need dust mopped. Wow, I dont like this feeling that I have forgotten something. I believe that it is time for me to stop this silly experiment and begin this day again. We can start our day over at any time. Many of my automatic habits are piggybacked on my basic habit of getting up and getting dressed to shoes. I am headed back to bed so my feet will hit the floor running.

C M Y K Page B12News-SunWednesday, May 22, 2013www.newssun.com Whats Cooking We had so much going o n at the hospital last week during our National Hospital Week. Weendedu p serving about 1,000 deli sandwiches on W ednesday, popped about 120 pounds of popcorn on Friday and created a popcorn bar in our caf with seven different flavors.C heddar and chocolate were the two favorites. To m ake the chocolate seasoning you need to mix one parts of unsweetenedc ocoa powder with two parts confectioners sugar a nd toss the corn with the powder while it is still hot. This week, we are fini shing the remodel in our Lake Placid and Wauchula campuses with Wauchula h aving had its grand opening on yesterday and Lake P lacid reopening today. Sebring with begin construction on June 2 and we will reopen on the June 11. D uring the past seven weeks, I having been working hard on watching what I eat. I have vegetables account for at least 75 percent of what I eat and enjoy animal proteins justo ne time per day. I have seen great results. I have l ost about 18 pounds and I feel great. Even better is the fact that a large section of my closet is now available for me to wear again. J ust eating animal proteins once per day was easier than I thought it would be. I have some fruit for breakfast and thena n entre salad for lunch with a cup of soup and finally enjoy some fresh vegetables with about 6 ounces of chicken fish or beef in the early evening. I would suggest to you to try this for a week and see if you can tell a difference or not. I saw results after the first week. This week, I have a good salad recipe for you that would be fine on its own or you can try it with a piece or grilled chicken or fish.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.ProperPantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with f ewer ingredients and pronounceable words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most wholes ome ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family.
