However, new Highlands County S upervisor of Elections Penny Ogg said regular voters w ont see much of a change in activities at her office as a result. lot of those changes came becauset he ballot was so incredibly long in the 2012 general election, she said. We only had a two-page ballot here, but there were other places thath ad multiple page ballots and that slowed things down. We w ere pretty sure we were going to get some electionsl aws out of this legislature. Under provisions of HB7013, the supervisor of elections must post informa-t ion on elections staffing during the election on their webs ite. They also must have tabulating equipment at voting locations and precincts toh elp speed returns. Flexibility in early v oting hours and locations also is part of the bill. They have given us the option of eight to 12 hours, depending upon the supervisor, with the ability to d etermine what days we want to have the polls open, Ogg said. Some things remain set in stone. Early voting will startt he 10th day prior to the election and end on the third day p rior to the election.

That was the word city council members got Tuesday night during their annual audit report Representatives of Wicks, Brown, Williams and Company, who did the work, said the citys total net assets increased by more than $4.5 million this past year while the total liabilities were down in excess of $2.7 million. The only downside appeared to be the Sebring Municipal Golf Course, which showed a loss of some $157,000 last year. Although expenses were up to a degree, it was a plunge in revenue at the course that appeared to be the problem. No reason was given for the apparent lack of players on the citys links. Also cited in the report was the citys ownership of Harder Hall, which registered as a $3.9 million liability on the municipal ledger books. Some good news came in the form of a ruling by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in September 2012, approving a general permit for the citys yard trash landfill. That action lifted financial requirements for the closing of the facility freeing up hundreds of thousands of dollars in the citys coffers that previously had been set aside. Overall, the city is in excellent financial health, with reserves well in excess of recommended required minimums, said John Davis, who narrated the PowerPoint presentation for the certified public accountant firm. The report covered the last fiscal year, which wound up in September 2012.

He has recently penned an account of his tours of Vietnam. Titled AVietnam Veterans Memoirs; ABook of Miracles, it chronicles two tours of duty in Southeast Asia the first as an infantryman, the second as the pilot of a Cobra helicopter gunship. Payne started the book last summer, after addressing an advanced Toastmasters club in Lakeland. I spoke about one of my experiences flying a Cobra gunship while I was there. One of the members was a publisher and she suggested that I expand on the subject and write my memoirs, he said. That night the idea was conceived, and nine months later, the book was published. Payne said it took some time. He first reflected over his memories of his tours of duty. Later, he looked up some of his old military buddies to go over the past and refresh his recollections. Payne also took time to read a number of books and articles about the Vietnam War era, to help flesh out his writing. The title for the book came from his primary re-reading of the book. As I read through it I discovered there were numerous situations that could only be describe d as miracles, he said.

By CHRISTOPHER T UFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING AmVets P ost 21 held a special service Memorial Day for animals who worked with the military in war time, especially those killed in combat. e are here to show respect and commemorate all the fallen men and women ... who have paid the ultimate price so we can have the freedom that we have, said Larry Roberts, the AmVet member conducting the ceremony. We are also going to show respect to the military animals: dogs, horses and even dolphins. In fact, through the centuries many different animals have been used in war, from Hannibals elephants; to Bedouin camels; to horses carrying armored knights; to Roman dogs used kill and intimidate; to dolphins used to protect naval vessels from enemy swimmers in Vietnam. A ccording to the Military Working Dog Foundation, while dogs were used in World War I, it wasnt until World War II that their training and use became an organized mission. Dogs worked for the most part as sentries, but they also were used as messengers and served in infantry platoons taking the point position and acting as scouts. They proved especially useful in the Pacific theater of WWII and again in the Vietnam War where they alerted troops to enemy soldiers hiding in lush vegetation and the semi-dark of a tropical forest. Horses, of course, have been used in war the longest, about 4,000 years. Horse warriors like the Mongols and the Cossacks terrified their enemies. Armored knights could not fight without a horse. The American West was fought on horseback. According to PBS.org, by t he end of World War I horses remained a major source of transport. It was recogn ized, however, they were out of date on a battle field. In a 1918 cavalry attack only four horses survived out of field of 150. As to the dolphins, in 1960 the United States began to study their and beluga whalessonar systems. Dolphins were also used to detect explosives and enemy swimmers. They were used in Vietnam and in the Persian Gulf. The program, which was always controversial, was greatly downsized in the 1990s due to budget cuts. In 2000 President Bill Clinton signed Robbys Law protecting retired service animals and allowing for their adoption. Ninety-five percent of service dogs are adopted by their handlers. Aplan to return retired dolphins to the wild has had limited success.

Marrero. The TVbit-player ( Miami Vice, Americas Most Wanted) and his wife, Sandra Fernandez Viera, are accused of submitting $20 million in false claims to the taxpayer-funded federalM edicare program. Miami has long had the s orry reputation for being the nations leader in Medicare fraud, with seemingly justa bout anybody from convicted felons to, well, actors accused of cashing in on whats supposed to be a medical safety net for the countrys elderly and disabled. How can this happen? Andk eep on happening? Where is the federal safety net that weeds out the unqualified or corrupt from getting carteb lanche to bilk the American public at a cost of untold millions? The federal Medicare Fraud Strike Force has been diligently swooping in on fraud-s ters since 2010, commendably so. But another part of M edicare, the administration arm that certifies that caregivers who tap into Medicarer eimbursements are actually qualified to do so and then v erifies that they actually deliver the services they vouch for, must be much more diligent. ... The two have also been a ccused of paying thousands o f dollars a month to a recruiter, Enrique Rodriguez, to supply them with patients possessing Medicare cards. Mr. Rodriguez is accused ofb ribing patients under the indictment. In all, the indictment snagged 89 people from Miami, Detroit and LosA ngeles, who together are charged with cheating Medicare of a total of $223 million. Many of those indicted are health care workers doctors, nurses, clinic opera-t ors and therapists. Thats to be sad to say expected. But how does a medical lay person get qualified to deal in Medicare-reim-b ursed health services? Marrero and Viera are innoc ent until proven guilty, of course, but their indictment once again raises questions about how well Medicare vets individuals who apply forl icenses to dispense health c are services in this country. The federal strike force set up in Miami and eighto ther regions believed to harb or legions of Medicare con a rtists is doing a great job of ferreting out licensed fraudsters. This is the sixthn ational indictment of major M edicare fraud offenders in t he last two years. Its no easy task, and it takes time and patience to build a crediblec ase. B ut this huge problem n eeds toughening up at the front end in order to stem ag rowing number of scammers. M uch, much more needs to be d one to weed out the wouldbe con artists before they are allowed to set up shop and s tart pillaging a vital federal h ealth care program. An editorial from the Miami H erald. Toughen up on Medicare fraud In the latest roundup of accused M edicare fraudsters, Miami is once again one of the main players. Literally. Grand Old Party is alive and wellEditor: The letters decrying the Republican Party are humorous but so inaccurate. Aparty of old fogies doesnt cut it. Who says were not catering to Hispanics, blacks, women? There is much to contradict this. The new senator from South Carolina is black, appointed by a white female Republican governor. Texans have just chosen a Mr. Cruz, a Republican, to be their senator. Nationally, look at Republican leaders in Congress. Sen. Paul of Kentucky, Sen. Rubio of Florida, Rep. Ryan of Wisconsin, Rep. Bachman of Minnesota, Rep. Cantor of Virginia all young bucks. Of course, the oldtimers are not to be scoffed at; their contributions are significant Grassley of Iowa, McConnel of Kentucky, Alexander of Tennessee. The Gang of 8 is bi-partisan and theyre leading the charge to change immigration legislation. Nationally, the Democratic administration causes one to scratch his head. Early on, Pres. Obama appointed two distinguished people, one Republican, one Democrat, to come up with a solution to our economic problems. The Bowles-Simpson committee came up with their recommendations and Obama has ignored them, flat out. Wheres the leadership when its taken five years to get immigration on the agenda? On the state level, Floridians prefer a Republican government. The current Speaker Pro Tempore of the Florida House is a woman Marti Coley of Marianna. She has represented the people of her district for eight years. Denise Grimsley of Highlands County is an influential member of the Senate. Republican women play a big part in the legislature. These women, along with many Hispanics and blacks, like the sound of Republican ideals. At the local level, all but one of the offices are filled by Republicans. The local party is now headed by a woman, Kathy Rapp. And young people? Theres a newly-formed Republican club at the State College, young men, young women. Asign of the times? The Grand Old Party of Abraham Lincoln is alive and well in the 21st century. Bob Hummel SebringWill Obama ever be to blame?Editor: After viewing the video of the Benghazi attack I do not understand why everyone is so confused. It did not start due to an impromptu gathering of offended persons reacting to a YouTube video made in America. It was a planned attack on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. It lasted seven and a half hours, plenty of time to send help. Everyone was told to stand down. Where was Obama during all this time?He wasnt in the Situation Room like he was during the Bin Laden raid where he outed a highly secret Navy team that had been going about its business for years in complete obscurity .. .yes, Seal Team 6! Until then, unbeknownst to anyone. The bucketmouth and his minions couldnt say their name loud enough or often enough and then 17 of them were mysteriously blown up in an unprotected helicopter. Hillary is just as much to blame. It was her job to make sure there was security forAmbassador Stevens. She had sent the American Marines away and given him the Muslim Brotherhood for protection. GeneralPetreaus did not want to sign off on the video lie, so he was thrown under the bus for something that was so common to the Democrats (adultery would use it to derail his career. Obama spoke before the United Nations and said themaker of the video would be arrested for the attack ... and he was. Never have you heard anyDemocrat apologize to him or his family for the torture he went through. Obama marched his UN ambassador out to no less than five Sunday news shows and she was so positive it was the fault of the video. Ambassador Pickering himself told the congressional hearings that he was appauld and so was the military commander who was ready to go to the aid of Americans in Benghazi when they were told to stand down.Ambassador Pickering was demoted for his efforts to get help to Benghazi. As for close scrutiny by the IRS of the conservative groups applying for tax exempt status, I do think 13 to 27 months is a bit extreme especially whenliberal groups gets it within three weeks. The liberal Media Matters, I am sure, is very socially involved. Last, but not least, the whole Senate and House votedfor going into Iraq because everyone thought there were WMDs there. This is the Obama Administration. Has been for five years. Will you ever blame him for anything he is doing on purpose that is ruining this country? Are you all that blind or are you all just low information people? Brenda Heigl Avon Park I RS apologists are furiously trying to change the subject from the outrageous targeting of political opponents by the IRS to a policyd ebate over forced disclosure of contributions to g roups that engage in political speech. The story is that a deluge of applica-t ions forced the IRS to cut corners and the targeting s candal was an accidental result of mismanaging that flood. From there the apol-o gists pivot to demanding a new crackdown on political speech, forced disclosure of d onors, or both. But the story is a fairy tale and the solutions are unconstitutional. The Inspector Generals report actually shows applications were down whent he targeting began. It shows that 1,735 groups applied for 501(c4 in fiscal 2010, down from 1,751 the prior year. The fiscal year was in its fifth month, February 2010,w hen targeting began; we dont know what the stand ard was in February because it is redacted in the report. We do know the terms tea party and patriot were used startingi n April 2010, more than halfway through the fiscal year. There is simply no way the IRS could have been flooded with applica-t ions that far into a year in which overall applications were down. Still, the policy debate is an important one: Was the Supreme Court wrong when it found that the anonymity of group member s engaging in controversial speech is protected by the Constitution? Considering the revelation in the Inspector Generals report that the IRS looked for statements in the case file criticize how the country is being run to subject groups to additional scrutiny, the privacy question is more vital than ever. Inviolability of privacy in group association may in many circumstances be indispensable to preservation of freedom of association, particularly where a group espouses dissident beliefs, the Supreme Court ruled. Many liberals disagree. They believe privacy protections are simply an effort to avoid public scrutiny and responsibility, and the consequences of engaging in political speech should include suffering the potential reputational and business damage that could come from adverse public reaction. The template here is the organized campaign against the corporate members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC ALEC is rare among public policy nonprofits on the left or right in that it generally discloses its d onors, who openly participate in a transparent p rocess of developing model free-market legislation for state legislators. F or being so forthcoming, liberals launched a b rutal attack on ALEC, led by Common Cause and the racial-grievance groupC olor of Change, which was founded by selfdescribed avowed commun ist and disgraced former Obama green jobs czar A nthony K. Van Jones. Through boycotts, negative advertising, and other tools of community organizing, they have bullied dozens ofc ompanies into pulling their support for ALEC. Do other organizations have a right to shield their supporters from that type of retribution? The Supreme Court says yes: It is nots ufficient to answer... that whatever repressive effect c ompulsory disclosure of names of petitioners members may have... follows not from state action but from private communityp ressures. The crucial factor is the interplay of governmental and private action, for it is only after the initial exertion of statep ower represented by the production order that private action takes hold. Does it surprise anyone that in the current environment conservative groups, in particular, would cherish the privacy of their members and bridle at intrusive information requests from the IRS? Theyve seen what happened to ALEC. Theyve seen what happened to supporters of National Organization for Marriage, whose membership list was illegally leaked by the IRS to their principal political opponents. They know professional protesters stands ready to attack and intimidate their supporters. What might surprise some liberals is that the quotes Ive included from the Supreme Court came not from the Roberts Court in Citizens United, but from the Warren Court in NAACPv.Alabama. In that landmark 1958 decision, the Court unanimously found that free association often depends on privacy protection from a government that could use forced disclosure for retribution by itself or by private community pressures. Its still true. Phil Kerpen is the president of American Commitment and the author of Democracy Denied. Kerpen can be reached at phil@americancommitment.org/.

TALLAHASSEE (AP Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill Tuesday that will keep in place a tax on northern Everglades farmers and put it toward an $880 million, longterm water-quality improvement plan for the River of Grass. The Everglades are very important to our state, very important to our country and the world. Its a national, international treasure. We have to make sure that we increase the flow of water and the quality of the water Scott said after signing the bill at Florida Atlantic University Pine Jog Environmental Education Center in West Palm Beach. The new law will maintain an existing tax on farmers until the mid-2030s, although it calls for the tax rate to decrease starting in the mid2020s. The money will be used for water quality restoration projects that are part of an $880 million plan that was negotiated between Scott and the federal government. The law also calls for spending $32 million a year for the next 10 years to build marshes that remove phosphorus. This is not what I would have expected from this governor, but to his credit, he stepped up, said Eric Draper, executive director of Audubon Florida. Scott signs bill to pay for Everglades restoration

C M Y K changes will involve people who move from one addresst o another, but do not change their address until they arrive at the voting booth. In the past, those individuals were required to cast a provisional ballot. Under the new law. they will be permitted to casta ballot like any other voter. That was originally done to prevent voter fraud, stopping people from traveling from one place to another and casting multiple ballots. That has not been a huge problem, and casting a provisional ballot is an intense paperwork job, she said. The process involves watching a single vote very closely; not only filling out special paperwork but also making certain the ballot does not get put into the tabulator. It became a huge burden on our precincts, especially on a general election day when it can get pretty busy in there, Ogg said. She said most people dont realize it, but those provisional ballots are being worked on throughout election day, with workers contacting other locations tod etermine if there were multiple ballots cast. Ogg said there has not been a problem in that regard to date. Another change is that the new legislation will permit family members accompanying those who have returned from military deployment or activation to register to vote up through the Friday prior to the election. Other changes in the law revolve around absentee ballots. It now will be a misdemeanor if you have more than two ballots that are not your own or an immediate family member to return to the supervisors office, Ogg said. The idea is to cut down on the ability of people to get excessive amounts of absentee ballots and process them. The measure also will requirea written request to have an absentee ballot mailed to an address other than the one that is on file at the supervisors office. In the past there have been questions raised about residents of adult congregate living facilities who have been brought to a common area to fill out their ballots, allegedly assisted by aides there. Ogg said such activities now are more closely administrated by supervisor of elections personnel. Most our ACLFs have gone to what we call supervised voting.Thats where our workers go in and help with the absentee balloting process, she said. The law also allows for automated audit operation for post election, however, Ogg said that probably will not be exercised here. eve always done the manual audit. We pick a race, we pick a precinct and that count is all done by hand, she said. I like the hands-on approach to make sure our machines are tabulating correctly. In addition to voter issues, some elections have been moved. The primary election now has been set at 10 weeks prior to the general election. The primary in 2014, for instance, will be held Aug. 26 of next year. The Presidential Preference Primary will be held on the first Tuesday after the party rules provide the state delegation to be allotted in a winner-take-all manner. In the past, there wasa Presidential Preference Primary Committee. Another measure inked by Scott (HB569 directly with candidates and electioneering groups. Under those new provisions, complaints about a candidate may not be filed or disclosed 30-days before a special, primary or general election unless it is based on personal information or something other than hearsay. In another provision, socalled committees of continuous existence will be merged into the political action committee category. The committees of continuous existence were on a different reporting schedule and had some different rules, Ogg explained. This now will push them more into a single category to streamline things and provide for greater accountability Additional campaign reporting will be required and contribution levels also have been changed. Donations have gone to $1,000 per person per election on a local level and$ 3,000 per person per elect ion for a statewide office or S upreme Court Justice, she s aid. The most important thing for voters as well as candidates Ogg said, is to be educated about the election process and changes in the laws.

Scores from the states w riting assessment portion of the FCATwere revealed and the results show that 57 percent of Floridas tested students are reading at or below grade level. A tiny increase from last years 56 percent has taken p lace over the course of a school term. The FCAT2.0 writing a ssessments were judged on predefined criteria: focus, o rganization, support, and conventions. Writing portions of the FCAT2.0 are not used in the grading criteria for a students passing scoreb ut are used when calculating school grades. O verall scores for students can range from a 1 to a 5; any students scoring a 1 are atr isk of being held back. The average score for students on t he FCATis a 3. Many may believe that student performance has slippeda s a result of the FCAT scores, which as a whole were much higher before the i mplementation of the 2.0 format two years ago, but t hat concept is not likely true. After the state passed a law that required the passing score to be lowered for all students from a 4 to a 3 thenc hanged again to a 3.5, more students were able to gain passing scores resulting in better passing percentages. Approximately 58 percent of students in the state achieved the passing score of 3.5 this year. Students who f ail the FCATare not necessarily penalized, however failing scores directly affect the school grade. Highlands County forth-, e ighthand 10th-graders are just above average on the writing portion of the FCAT. For forth-graders, 58 percent scored at or above ther equired 3.5 score, 40 percent scored 4 and above and 2 percent scored at a 1. Fifty-one percent of Highlands County eighthgraders scored the required3 .5 score, 28 percent scored at 4 or above and 2 percent s cored at a 1. Fifty-three percent of 10thgraders achieved the required3 .5 score, 29 percent scored at a 4 or above and 2 percent s cored a 1 on the writing portion of the FCAT. The open skepticism regarding the FCAThas continued to increase during thep ast few years causing worry among parents and administ rators. With the continued changes to the FCATsatis-f actory level, actual performance of students, as well a s teachers, will remain difficult to determine. Teacher evaluation is heavi ly based on student FCAT scores. Low performing students directly affect the s chool as a whole and have an adverse affect on a s chools grade. Schools that repeatedly perform poorly (schools receiving Ds and Fs) are at risk for administrative andt eacher changes or losses and even school closures. School letter grades will be released in July. Students individuals scores will be given out to parents in the coming weeks. FCAT writing scores released Continued from A1 school to learn to become a helicopter pilot. I struggled for six years t o get into flight school but couldnt pass the eye test, he said. But surprisingly, when I took my physical at the end of my first tour ofd uty, my sight went from 20/40 to 20/15 and nobody could explain it. In the book, Payne recounts other miracles, including his overcoming4 4 rejections to get into flight school, his escape f rom being sent to prison and an incident where one of his fellow servicemen came back from the dead. His first experience in S outheast Asia came with the Fourth Infantry Division where he got experience as one of Americas boots on the ground serving with as upport unit for a brigade. Payne said one of his most c hallenging times was when he was assigned to a highlands region. They sent me to the mountains and Im a Florida f latlander. I wasnt used to that, he said. After 18 months learning t o fly and maneuver the Cobra gunship, Payne returned to Vietnam for a s econd tour of duty this time with the 101st A irborne Division. e were organic to the artillery unit. We were generally on fire missions or landing zone preparation t hats highly intensive activity, he said. We shot about 12,000 rockets; we saw a lot of action. Payne said the focus of the war had changed significantly between his tours of duty, with more aggressive action by the military when h e served in the infantry, to more of a withdrawal strateg y by the time he re-entered the fray as a pilot. Nevertheless, he spent time dodging enemy fire both from .50 caliberm achine guns and 37mm anti aircraft guns. Although he never was wounded, Payne recounts an incident where he came close. I had a round hit a hose that looped up around my head, he said. One of Paynes fondest m emories was an exchange of letters he had with N ASCAR champion driver Richard Petty. I wrote him a letter and to my great surprise he answered me, Payne said. It still inspires me to this day. It is so impressive that as busy as he was, he took the time to write me back. More than a recounting of battle activities, Payne wrote the book as an inspirational piece. I learned lessons like h ow you have to overcome your obstacles, be persistent a nd never take no for an answer, he said. What I put in this book was things that help you get over things that bog youd own in life and to keep on going.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comI s starting to feel a lot like summer and the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team (HHST its first swim meet of their summer season in Wauchula on Saturday, May 18, at theH ardee Swim Association Invitational. But it was the Lake Placid Aquatics (LPA) team that saw their boys take a win, as well as the team overall. With 115 swimmers overall on hand, ranging in age from 5 to 17, it was a full docket of events and a competitive field. Hardee, boasting the most swimmers with 48, won the girls side of the meet and took second overall with the Highlands boys taking second. The final team totals showi ng Lake Placid with 860 points, Hardee with 801 and the Hurricanes with 713. HHSTsaw five of its swimmers win each of the events they competed in. Frank Brown, age 15 from L ake Placid, won the Boys 15-18 50 Free, 100 Individual Medley, 100 Breast and 100 Back. Eight-year old Megan Glisson of Sebring won the Girls 8 and Under 25 Butterfly, 50 Free, 50 Back and 100 IM, while 10-year old Peyton Ming won the 10 and under 25 and 50 Free, 50 Butterfly and 50 Back. Anna Sapp, 10 and from Lake Placid, won the Girls 10 and Under 25 Butterfly, 50 Free and Back and 100 IM. Clara Simpson, 13 and from Sebring, won the Girls 13-14 50 Free, Breaststroke and Back, along with the 100 Breaststroke.

Miller did connect for a solid single through the right side Saturday, against hard-throwing Tyler Danish of Durant, listed as the 70th prep prospect in the country. He was bringing it, Miller said.

Sitting down with Schroeder MCTphoto M ike Wallace speaks to the m edia during a press conference in Davie this March. The Dolphins welcomed the wide receiver in a 5-year deal worth $60 million. By ADAM H. BEASLEY The Miami Herald (MCTMIAMIMike Wallace is p utting down roots. Or perhaps hes hoping to cash in on the latest real estate boom. More likely, both are true. Either way . In Pittsburgh, I knew I was (in time, a furnished apartment, Wallace said last week. Id just bring my bag and be ready to go. Down here, I h ave to buy me a house, get settled in. Wallaces words are telling for two reasons: He yet again took a not-sosubtle shot at his old team and city (Wallace already has said he didnt feel at home in Pittsburgh, and Ryan Tannehill could be as good as Ben Roethlisberger). He is all in on all things Miami; physically, emotionally and financially. Since signing a $60 million contract with the Dolphins on t he first day of free agency, Wallace has had to acclimate himself to the area, his coaching staff and his teammates. The on-the-field part might be the easiest. Reporters got a sneak peek at the Dolphinsnew-look o ffense last week. Wallace joined Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson in Miamis three-wide formations during Tuesdays organized team activities. Hartline and Wallace worked predominantly on the outside, and Gibson was in the slot taking the place of Davone Bess, who was traded to Cleveland during the NFL Draft. Combined, they signed offseason contracts worth in excess of $100 million with more $40 million in guaranteed money. The Dolphins had no choice but to open up the wallet. They ranked in the bottom third of the league in average total yards (311.5), points (18) and passing yards (199 2012. Coach Joe Philbin never could really run the offense he wanted in his first season. Tannehill was too green, and the skill players around him were underwhelming These wont be excuses in 2013. I think the biggest things that weve talked about is being able to move the chains, Philbin said. I think really (thats) the one deciding thing that gets you the opportunity to call more plays a nd play faster. The more weapons you have on offense, youve got to believe that helps your percentages of getting more first downs and creating that type of tempo. And the centerpiece of New Dolphins receiver Wallace feels at home in Miami See WALLACE, Page B5 Associated PressST. PETERSBURG ALCy Young Award winner David Price has resumed playing catch as part of his rehab program for a strained left triceps.

T he club voted to make a generous contribution to the l ocal Church Service Center to assist the needy of the community. The program, Repotting orchids, was given byE well. Orchids require a special pot that allows air circulation and drains freely. Some plants need very course bark and others finer medium. The pot and filler shouldf irst be soaked in water. Fill the pot by a third, arrange r oots carefully and finish filling pot. The plant should rest on top of bark. Use pins to secure it in the pot. Orchids require little care. W ater well, feed it monthly and place it in dapple shade, never in full sun. Ewell answered the questions. This is the plant exchange m eeting. Members are allowed to trade it if they l ike. One member brought a cacti that drew lots of inter-e st. No name yet but were working on it. It is smooth, t ubular and will bloom red or white at one year old. Members enjoyed delightf ul refreshements and fellowship and toured Ewells lovely gardens. M eeting adjourned until September.Women of the Moose 873SEBRING The Women o f the Moose Chapter 873, Lodge 2259 at U.S. 98 ended their successful chapter year 2012-2013 by donating to six local charities. $500 was given to each of the following localo rganizations,Champions for Children, Sheriffs C anine Corp, New Testament, Ridge Arc, Good Shepard Hospice, and Mothers for TBI.

No symptoms? You may still have diabetes. O ne of the things to do if y ou are a diabetic is eating p roperly. You should eat six m eals a day. Breakfast should be a hot breakfast, if a t all possible, and it is the most important meal of the d ay. Limit eating foods that are high in sugar content.

T ropical H arbor Estates By Arlene Clouston P lacid Lakes Party Line By Susie Lee Courtesy photo Ridge Area Arc consumer Ricky Marino gets behind the wheel of the golf cart to demonstrate his driving skills on May 22 while Arc staff member Chris Perkins provides i nstructions. Marinos love for NASCARdrove him to want to learn how to drive. Special to the News-SunA VON PARK After one year of training in Ridge A rea Arcs Golf Cart Program, 60 graduates received certificates on May 2 2 during its first graduation ceremony on the main campus. The Golf Cart Program kicked off in February 2012w ith 39 adult students with intellectual disabilities enrolled for their first driving experience. It grew to 60 students rapidly once every-o ne witnessed how easy it was for people with disabili ties to participate. Students range in ages from 20 to 77. T he graduation ceremony was designed to honor those students for their accomplishments this past year, but it was also set up forf amilies and caregivers to see them in action. The students put on a demonstration of their driving skills prior to the formal gradua-t ion ceremony. Andrea Willingham, of Sebring, recently joined the driving program and her mom Jill was present during the ceremony. She expressed her appreciation for the hard work the staff was doing to help her daughter to become independent. I just wanted to thank you so much for a very special day at the Golf Cart demonstration and awards. I came back smiling for the happy faces and accomplishments that you helped each one achieve, Willingham said. Jeffrey and Lisa Crews father John drove all the way from Fort Meade to witness his children participating in the program. The graduation event was phenomenal and it was thoughtful that every aspect of inclusion was covered even for those who just wanted to ride, John Crews said. It was one consumers desire to learn how to drive that pushed the agency to pursue an opportunity to offer a driving program on the campus. Angie Luft, of Avon Park, continuously told staff that she wanted to learn how to drive. She lives independently in her own apartment and wants to be able to go places on her own. I want to be able to see my family in Homestead and go out and do things on my own like shopping at the mall, Luft said. The Golf Cart Program has helped me to learn how to get my driver's license. Its been fun. Afew individuals with disabilities have successfull y received their drivers license and they serve as g ood role models for these students. This unique program was d eveloped at Ridge Area Arc after SpringLake Golf Course in Sebring made a donation of the golf cart that was equipped like a car. Itc ame with seat belts, lights, turn signal, mirrors, etc. Students were able to drive the golf cart around a wide open track on the main cam-p us. The golf cart doesn't go over 25 miles per hour. A fter getting comfortable with the basic fundamentalso f driving, a road course was designed on the track for some of the more advanced students. The road course was complete withl ines, signs and parking spots. There are four phases of the Golf Cart Program. There are students who justw anted to ride in the golf cart while staff drove. This level was appropriate for individuals with severe to moderate learning disabilities. For those wishing to learn to drive, there are three levels Staying On The Road, Beginners and Advanced. All three requirea staff member to ride along. The Staying On The Road students mostly focus on keeping the golf cart on the track and learning to use the gas and brake appropriately. Beginners took it a step further by learning how to passa vehicle, railroad crossings, pedestrian crosswalks, signs and staying in their lane. Advanced drivers did the same as beginners but learned techniques similar to driving a car such as backing up, vertical parking, three-point turnaround, U-turns and even parallel parking. Students learned much more than driving. They learned to also respect others who are driving, focus on an activity and proper safety in a vehicle. Even if they may choose to not drive a vehicle, the program teaches them how to drive equipment such as a riding lawnmower which could help them in employment opportunities. I love NASCAR, Golf Cart graduate Ricky Marino said. I want to learn how to drive like my favorite driver Dale Jr. Marino is on the road to learning especially after he scored 92 out of 100, which put him in the top 10 of his class. Road tests were developed to be similar to the checklist that they would have if they went to take their drivers test for a vehicle. Those tests were admin-i stered on May 14-15. They had to score 75 percent to pass. The advanced level test had 100 points on the testa nd two students scored 99. Katie Gibson and Austin D elGrosso, both students in the Highlands County School District who receive vocational training at Ridge Area Arc. Gibson chose tow rite a speech to address her fellow students at the graduation ceremony. For the past few weeks, we have been comingt ogether to learn golf cart driving skills. There have b een many different things we have learned in these past few weeks that will help us become better drivers in the years to come,G ibson said during her speech. Some of those awesome things are learning how to read street signs, putting on the brakes, using our hand signals, and how much fun it can be to come together with friends to learn new skills that will help us in the future. She further addressed her fellow graduates by saying, These last few weeks have taught me many valuable lessons. One of the lessons I have learned is how to stick to a single task. Another lesson I have learned is how hard it can be to achieve goals that can help us become more independent in the coming years. How do you think the past few weeks in training will help you in the years to come? The top beginner students were Leon Gordon of Lake Placid and Carlita Hawkins of Avon Park, who both scored 42 out 47 possible points on their final test. In the Stay On The Road level, Joshua Croston of Avon Park scored 20 out of 27 to become the top beginner in his class. Each of the top students received a plaque. Only a few of the students will advance to the next level of studying the Rules of the Road book to focus on obtaining their Learners Permit to become drivers. Others will move up to different levels of learning. Although not everyone passed the course, they will continue practicing their skills so they can retake the test next year. New students have already begun to enroll.

It was the first time for both of us. Aweek and a half later, we had a big fight. Another problem is I am having a lot of feelings for his best friend, and he has feelings for me, too. I dont want to tell my boyfriend because I love him and dont want to lose him. I also dont want to ruin his friendship with the other guy. My boyfriend wants to have sex again, but I dont. I wish I could take it back. What can I do? Lost and Confused DearLost: Because you had sex once does not mean you are compelled to do it again. Feeling as you do about the best friend is a strong sign that as much as you care for your boyfriend, you are not in love with him. If you are being pressured to have sex, its important for YOUR sake that you tell your boyfriend you feel it happened too soon, youre sorry you did it, and you have decided to wait until you are older to start again. It would be an intelligent move for you because your affections appear to be all over the map right now. I am also concerned because you didnt mention whether you both used birth control. Its a sign of maturity when couples plan ahead and take precautions to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. (And yes, a girl CAN get pregnant the first time.) In fact, theres a word for teens who have sex on the spur of the moment and dont use birth control: Its PARENTS. DearAbby: My friend is a compulsive talker. Chatty Cathy draws detailed descriptions of people I dont know and dont care about and lingers over past and current tribulations. I tolerate her behavior because shes a kind person, but she is oblivious to how much she dominates a conversation. Its like something compels her to fill every silence with monologue. Her personal and work relationships suffer because of it. Its hard for her to hold a job, and she often becomes upset over this coworkers or that family members behavior. It is always the other persons failure, yet she is always in the center of the commotion. She has had a tough life, partly of her own making. If I try to send subtle cues of uninterest, she doesnt pick up on them and keeps talking and talking.I feel sorry for her. Is there anything I can do to help her, without seeming critical? Exhausted Listener in Hawaii DearExhausted: Not knowing your friend, I can only guess what drives her to talk compulsively. Some people do it because they feel the need to prove to others how smart they are. Others do it out of nervousness or insecurity because they are uncomfortable with silence even if it is a momentary pause in conversation. Because her behavior has had a negative impact on her employability, the next time she mentions problems at work, it would be a kindness to suggest to her that, because its happening repeatedly, she discuss it with a psychologist. Thats not hurtful; its helpful. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Confused teen regrets having sex with boyfriend Pop quiz: How do you get kids to eat just about anything? A nswer: You get them involved in the kitchen. Theres no surefire guarantee that your kids will eat something they have had ah and in preparing, but it absolutely increases the odds of them trying and liking a dish. Get your kids right in t here helping in the entire meal preparation process, right from meal planning tot he clean up. Cooking is an essential life skill and its never too early to get thec hildren at the kitchen counter next to you. Youll b e surprised at how helpful they can be once they get a hang of things! And withs ummer break around the corner, dinner time is about t o get a lot more casual and a lot less rushed making it the perfect time to get those kids in the kitchen. Here are some ways you c an get your kids cooking this summer:Get plantingG ive your children a good clear understanding of how much it takes to get foodo nto their plates by growing some fruits and vegetables together. Let the kids pick o ut a packet of organic seeds and involve them through e ach and every step from the soaking of the seeds to the transplanting the seedlings into a larger container.

Summer is right around the corner and parents can get prepared early for these hot summer days by signing up young freedom lovers for one of the many summer camps throughout Highlands County. Camp Sparta is one of the most popular summer camps in the county. This year, the Christian camp and conference center will hold two camps: The Ridge for campers entering grades third through sixth and The Edge for campers entering grades seventh through ninth. Camps are being offered June 1621 and June 23-28. Anon-refundable $75 deposit is needed to hold a spot for a camper. The camp costs $289 for families or $309 for single registration. For more information visit www.campsparta.com or call 3828696. The Childrens Museum of Highlands County Discovery Camp 2013 kicks on June 10. The weekly camp will run through Aug. 2 and offers a variety of activities and learning experiences for campers in a fun-filled atmosphere. Parents may sign kids up for the full summer or specific weeks as needed. Discovery Camp runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day is $75 per week. Non-members of the museum must pay a $10 registration. Campers Plenty of camps to keep kids busy over summer vacation By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Earlier this month, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed off on a couple of bills that will impact voting in the Sunshine State. However, new Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg said regular voters wont see much of a change in activities at her office as a result. Alot of those changes came because the ballot was so incredibly long in the 2012 general election, she said. We only had a two-page ballot here, but there were other places that had multiple page ballots and that slowed things down. We were pretty sure we were going to get some elections laws out of this legislature. Under provisions of HB7013, the supervisor of elections must post information on elections staffing during the election on their website. They also must have tabulating equipment at voting locations and precincts to help speed returns. Flexibility in early voting hours and locations also is part of the bill. They have given us the option of eight to 12 hours, depending upon the supervisor, with the ability to determine what days we want to have the polls open, Ogg said. Some things remain set in stone. Early voting will start the 10th day prior to the election and end on the third day prior to the election. One of the most significant New elections law wont lead to big changes hereStarting with a splashHighlands Hurricanes, LP Aquatics do well at 1st meet SPORTS, B1 By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING With the exception of operations at the municipal golf course, it appears that the Orange Blossom City is in pretty good shape financially. That was the word city council members got Tuesday night during their annual audit report Representatives of Wicks, Brown, Williams and Company, who did the work, said the citys total net assets increased by more than $4.5 million this past year while the total liabilities were down in excess of $2.7 million. The only downside appeared to be the Sebring Municipal Golf Course, which showed a loss of some $157,000 last year. Although expenses were up to a degree, it was a plunge in revenue at the course that appeared to be the problem. No reason was given for the apparent lack of players on the citys links. Also cited in the report was the citys ownership of Harder Hall, which registered as a $3.9 million liability on the municipal ledger books. Some good news came in the form of a ruling by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in September 2012, approving a general permit for the citys yard trash landfill. That action lifted financial requirements for the closing of the facility freeing up hundreds of thousands of dollars in the citys coffers that previously had been set aside. Overall, the city is in excellent financial health, with reserves well in excess of recommended required minimums, said John Davis, who narrated the PowerPoint presentation for the certified public accountant firm. The report covered the last fiscal year, which wound up in September 2012. Sebring in good financial shape, except for golf course Net assets up by $4.5 million, but Muni showed loss of $157,000 Ogg By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING He may be best known locally as the head of the Toastmasters club, but Highlands County resident Mack Payne also is a budding author. He has recently penned an account of his tours of Vietnam. Titled AVietnam Veterans Memoirs; ABook of Miracles, it chronicles two tours of duty in Southeast Asia the first as an infantryman, the second as the pilot of a Cobra helicopter gunship. Payne started the book last summer, after addressing an advanced Toastmasters club in Lakeland. I spoke about one of my experiences flying a Cobra gunship while I was there. One of the members was a publisher and she suggested that I expand on the subject and write my memoirs, he said. That night the idea was conceived, and nine months later, the book was published. Payne said it took some time. He first reflected over his memories of his tours of duty. Later, he looked up some of his old military buddies to go over the past and refresh his recollections. Payne also took time to read a number of books and articles about the Vietnam War era, to help flesh out his writing. The title for the book came from his primary re-reading of the book. As I read through it I discovered there were numerous situations that could only be describe d as miracles, he said.

Stephens Jr. Endowment F und as a tribute to the career of Dr. Norman L. Stephens Jr., president of SFSC, upon his retirement from t he college on June 30. The funds from the endowment will be used primarily for student s cholarships. The first scholarship w ill be available to SFSC students beginning fall 2014, with special preference given to those who demonstrate financial need or merit and meet a grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or better on all previous academic work. Any SFSC student enrolled or accepted for enrollment is eligible to apply for the scholarship. The scholarship may be used for tuition, fees, books, or other purposes as determined by the college. At the discretion of the SFSC Foundation Board of Directors, the annual budgeted proceeds from this endowment may be used for nonscholarship purposes that relate to identified institutional needs, such as equipment, the establishment of teaching chairs, and support of mini-grants to faculty, staff, and programs. These expenditures will always be allocated in the name of Dr. Norman L. Stephens Jr., Don Appelquist said. Appelquist is executive director of the Foundation. The Foundation will continue to accrue contributions to the endowed scholarship in hopes that the corpus will meet and exceed $350,000. The endowment is funded by proceeds from the 29th Annual Meeting and Presidents Gala, numerous donations from local businesses, and caring residents. In addition, some of the gifts are being matched through a Title III Strengthening Institutions Grant from the United States Department of Education. Because Dr. Stephens has been a tremendous asset to our college, it's only fitting for our foundation board to honor him in this special way, said Appelquist.

Dog biscuits were left too. Larry Roberts (center) gets to know a German shepherd who came, with his family, to pay respects. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING AmVets P ost 21 held a special service Memorial Day for animals who worked with the military in war time, especially those killed in combat. We are here to show respect and commemorate all the fallen men and women ... who have paid the ultimate price so we can have the freedom that we have, said Larry Roberts, the AmVet member conducting the ceremony. We are also going to show respect to the military animals: dogs, horses and even dolphins. In fact, through the centuries many different animals have been used in war, from Hannibals elephants; to Bedouin camels; to horses carrying armored knights; to Roman dogs used kill and intimidate; to dolphins used to protect naval vessels from enemy swimmers in Vietnam. According to the Military Working Dog Foundation, while dogs were used in World War I, it wasnt until World War II that their training and use became an organized mission. Dogs worked for the most part as sentries, but they also were used as messengers and served in infantry platoons taking the point position and acting as scouts. They proved especially useful in the Pacific theater of WWII and again in the Vietnam War where they alerted troops to enemy soldiers hiding in lush vegetation and the semi-dark of a tropical forest. Horses, of course, have been used in war the longest, about 4,000 years. Horse warriors like the Mongols and the Cossacks terrified their enemies. Armored knights could not fight without a horse. The American West was fought on horseback. According to PBS.org, by the end of World War I horses remained a major source of transport. It was recognized, however, they were out of date on a battle field. In a 1918 cavalry attack only four horses survived out of field of 150. As to the dolphins, in 1960 the United States began to study their and beluga whalessonar systems. Dolphins were also used to detect explosives and enemy swimmers. They were used in Vietnam and in the Persian Gulf. The program, which was always controversial, was greatly downsized in the 1990s due to budget cuts. In 2000 President Bill Clinton signed Robbys Law protecting retired service animals and allowing for their adoption. Ninety-five percent of service dogs are adopted by their handlers. Aplan to return retired dolphins to the wild has had limited success.

Marrero. The TVbit-player ( Miami Vice, Americas Most Wanted) and his wife, Sandra Fernandez Viera, are accused of submitting $20 million in false claims to the taxpayer-funded federal M edicare program. Miami has long had the s orry reputation for being the nations leader in Medicare fraud, with seemingly just a bout anybody from convicted felons to, well, actors accused of cashing in on whats supposed to be a medical safety net for the countrys elderly and disabled. How can this happen? And k eep on happening? Where is the federal safety net that weeds out the unqualified or corrupt from getting carte blanche to bilk the American public at a cost of untold millions? The federal Medicare Fraud Strike Force has been diligently swooping in on fraudsters since 2010, commendably so. But another part of Medicare, the administration arm that certifies that caregivers who tap into Medicare reimbursements are actually qualified to do so and then verifies that they actually deliver the services they vouch for, must be much more diligent. ... The two have also been accused of paying thousands of dollars a month to a recruiter, Enrique Rodriguez, to supply them with patients possessing Medicare cards. Mr. Rodriguez is accused of bribing patients under the indictment. In all, the indictment snagged 89 people from Miami, Detroit and Los Angeles, who together are charged with cheating Medicare of a total of $223 million. Many of those indicted are health care workers doctors, nurses, clinic operators and therapists. Thats to be sad to say expected. But how does a medical lay person get qualified to deal in Medicare-reimbursed health services? Marrero and Viera are innocent until proven guilty, of course, but their indictment once again raises questions about how well Medicare vets individuals who apply for licenses to dispense health care services in this country. The federal strike force set up in Miami and eight other regions believed to harbor legions of Medicare con artists is doing a great job of ferreting out licensed fraudsters. This is the sixth national indictment of major Medicare fraud offenders in the last two years. Its no easy task, and it takes time and patience to build a credible case. But this huge problem needs toughening up at the front end in order to stem a growing number of scammers. Much, much more needs to be done to weed out the wouldbe con artists before they are allowed to set up shop and start pillaging a vital federal health care program. An editorial from the Miami Herald. Toughen up on Medicare fraud In the latest roundup of accused Medicare fraudsters, Miami is once again one of the main players. Literally. Grand Old Party is alive and wellEditor: The letters decrying the Republican Party are humorous but so inaccurate. Aparty of old fogies doesnt cut it. Who says were not catering to Hispanics, blacks, women? There is much to contradict this. The new senator from South Carolina is black, appointed by a white female Republican governor. Texans have just chosen a Mr. Cruz, a Republican, to be their senator. Nationally, look at Republican leaders in Congress. Sen. Paul of Kentucky, Sen. Rubio of Florida, Rep. Ryan of Wisconsin, Rep. Bachman of Minnesota, Rep. Cantor of Virginia all young bucks. Of course, the oldtimers are not to be scoffed at; their contributions are significant Grassley of Iowa, McConnel of Kentucky, Alexander of Tennessee. The Gang of 8 is bi-partisan and theyre leading the charge to change immigration legislation. Nationally, the Democratic administration causes one to scratch his head. Early on, Pres. Obama appointed two distinguished people, one Republican, one Democrat, to come up with a solution to our economic problems. The Bowles-Simpson committee came up with their recommendations and Obama has ignored them, flat out. Wheres the leadership when its taken five years to get immigration on the agenda? On the state level, Floridians prefer a Republican government. The current Speaker Pro Tempore of the Florida House is a woman Marti Coley of Marianna. She has represented the people of her district for eight years. Denise Grimsley of Highlands County is an influential member of the Senate. Republican women play a big part in the legislature. These women, along with many Hispanics and blacks, like the sound of Republican ideals. At the local level, all but one of the offices are filled by Republicans. The local party is now headed by a woman, Kathy Rapp. And young people? Theres a newly-formed Republican club at the State College, young men, young women. Asign of the times? The Grand Old Party of Abraham Lincoln is alive and well in the 21st century. Bob Hummel SebringWill Obama ever be to blame?Editor: After viewing the video of the Benghazi attack I do not understand why everyone is so confused. It did not start due to an impromptu gathering of offended persons reacting to a YouTube video made in America. It was a planned attack on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. It lasted seven and a half hours, plenty of time to send help. Everyone was told to stand down. Where was Obama during all this time?He wasnt in the Situation Room like he was during the Bin Laden raid where he outed a highly secret Navy team that had been going about its business for years in complete obscurity .. .yes, Seal Team 6! Until then, unbeknownst to anyone. The bucketmouth and his minions couldnt say their name loud enough or often enough and then 17 of them were mysteriously blown up in an unprotected helicopter. Hillary is just as much to blame. It was her job to make sure there was security forAmbassador Stevens. She had sent the American Marines away and given him the Muslim Brotherhood for protection. GeneralPetreaus did not want to sign off on the video lie, so he was thrown under the bus for something that was so common to the Democrats (adultery) that it was laughable they would use it to derail his career. Obama spoke before the United Nations and said themaker of the video would be arrested for the attack ... and he was. Never have you heard anyDemocrat apologize to him or his family for the torture he went through. Obama marched his UN ambassador out to no less than five Sunday news shows and she was so positive it was the fault of the video. Ambassador Pickering himself told the congressional hearings that he was appauld and so was the military commander who was ready to go to the aid of Americans in Benghazi when they were told to stand down.Ambassador Pickering was demoted for his efforts to get help to Benghazi. As for close scrutiny by the IRS of the conservative groups applying for tax exempt status, I do think 13 to 27 months is a bit extreme especially whenliberal groups gets it within three weeks. The liberal Media Matters, I am sure, is very socially involved. Last, but not least, the whole Senate and House votedfor going into Iraq because everyone thought there were WMDs there. This is the Obama Administration. Has been for five years. Will you ever blame him for anything he is doing on purpose that is ruining this country? Are you all that blind or are you all just low information people? Brenda Heigl Avon Park IRS apologists are furiously trying to change the subject from the outrageous targeting of political opponents by the IRS to a policy debate over forced disclosure of contributions to groups that engage in political speech. The story is that a deluge of applications forced the IRS to cut corners and the targeting scandal was an accidental result of mismanaging that flood. From there the apologists pivot to demanding a new crackdown on political speech, forced disclosure of donors, or both. But the story is a fairy tale and the solutions are unconstitutional. The Inspector Generals report actually shows applications were down when the targeting began. It shows that 1,735 groups applied for 501(c)(4) status in fiscal 2010, down from 1,751 the prior year. The fiscal year was in its fifth month, February 2010, when targeting began; we dont know what the standard was in February because it is redacted in the report. We do know the terms tea party and patriot were used starting in April 2010, more than halfway through the fiscal year. There is simply no way the IRS could have been flooded with applications that far into a year in which overall applications were down. Still, the policy debate is an important one: Was the Supreme Court wrong when it found that the anonymity of group member s engaging in controversial speech is protected by the Constitution? Considering the revelation in the Inspector Generals report that the IRS looked for statements in the case file criticize how the country is being run to subject groups to additional scrutiny, the privacy question is more vital than ever. Inviolability of privacy in group association may in many circumstances be indispensable to preservation of freedom of association, particularly where a group espouses dissident beliefs, the Supreme Court ruled. Many liberals disagree. They believe privacy protections are simply an effort to avoid public scrutiny and responsibility, and the consequences of engaging in political speech should include suffering the potential reputational and business damage that could come from adverse public reaction. The template here is the organized campaign against the corporate members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC is rare among public policy nonprofits on the left or right in that it generally discloses its donors, who openly participate in a transparent process of developing model free-market legislation for state legislators. For being so forthcoming, liberals launched a brutal attack on ALEC, led by Common Cause and the racial-grievance group Color of Change, which was founded by selfdescribed avowed communist and disgraced former Obama green jobs czar Anthony K. Van Jones. Through boycotts, negative advertising, and other tools of community organizing, they have bullied dozens of companies into pulling their support for ALEC. Do other organizations have a right to shield their supporters from that type of retribution? The Supreme Court says yes: It is not sufficient to answer... that whatever repressive effect compulsory disclosure of names of petitioners members may have... follows not from state action but from private community pressures. The crucial factor is the interplay of governmental and private action, for it is only after the initial exertion of state power represented by the production order that private action takes hold. Does it surprise anyone that in the current environment conservative groups, in particular, would cherish the privacy of their members and bridle at intrusive information requests from the IRS? Theyve seen what happened to ALEC. Theyve seen what happened to supporters of National Organization for Marriage, whose membership list was illegally leaked by the IRS to their principal political opponents. They know professional protesters stands ready to attack and intimidate their supporters. What might surprise some liberals is that the quotes Ive included from the Supreme Court came not from the Roberts Court in Citizens United, but from the Warren Court in NAACPv.Alabama. In that landmark 1958 decision, the Court unanimously found that free association often depends on privacy protection from a government that could use forced disclosure for retribution by itself or by private community pressures. Its still true. Phil Kerpen is the president of American Commitment and the author of Democracy Denied. Kerpen can be reached at phil@americancommitment.org/.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK At approximately 1:30 p.m. Sunday, the Polk County Sheriffs Office received a call that a p edestrian had been struck on U.S. 27 just south of Bell Road near Frostproof. Upon arrival, deputies discovered a man had been s truck by a semi-truck and trailer that was southbound on U.S. 27. The pedestrian has been identified as 51-year-old Dennis Joseph Obrien, 3924 Scenic Highway, Apt.2, Lake Wales. According to witnesses, Obrien had parked his Chevy pickup on the right west shoulder of the (southbound) roadway, got out of his vehicle and walked into the roadway for unknown reasons and was struck by the semi-truck and trailer. The semi-truck driven by 40-year-old Alexy Rodriguez of Miami attempted to take evasive action, but was unable to avoid striking Obrien. Obrien was taken to Florida Heartland Hospital in Sebring by Emergency Medical Services; he was pronounced deceased at the hospital. Separate from the fatal traffic crash investigation, PCSO received a call from friends of Obrien reporting that he had posted suicidaltype remarks on his Facebook page. Adeputy responded to check on Obriens well-being at his residence. The deputy found the door to the residence open.When there was no response at the door, he checked the interior for the victim and found a handwritten note and the open Facebook site on a desktop computer monitor with his posting both indicating that he wanted to harm himself. Deputies are conducting an ongoing joint fatal crash and death investigation. At this point in the investigation, it appears that Obrien intentionally walked into an oncoming semi-tractor trailer travelling on U.S. 27.An autopsy will be completed by the Medical Examiners Office. www.newssun.comNews-SunW ednesday, May 29, 2013Page A5 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; ff top rhp summer camp; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 8 8 6 6 0 0 PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 3.639"; 16"; Black plus three; process, 99299 publix liquors; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 5 5 8 8 8 8 SHERWIN-WILLIAMS CO.; 3.639"; 10"; Black; IO 554779 main right hand page; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 0 0 5 5 4 4 Man apparently kills self by walking in front of semi truck Continued from A1 Summer camps offer plenty of fun News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS Summer campers are showered with cola last year during Discovery Camp at the Childrens Museum of the Highlands in Sebring. TALLAHASSEE (AP) Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill Tuesday that will keep in place a tax on northern Everglades farmers and put it toward an $880 million, longterm water-quality improvement plan for the River of Grass. The Everglades are very important to our state, very important to our country and the world. Its a national, international treasure. We have to make sure that we increase the flow of water and the quality of the water, Scott said after signing the bill at Florida Atlantic University Pine Jog Environmental Education Center in West Palm Beach. The new law will maintain an existing tax on farmers until the mid-2030s, although it calls for the tax rate to decrease starting in the mid2020s. The money will be used for water quality restoration projects that are part of an $880 million plan that was negotiated between Scott and the federal government. The law also calls for spending $32 million a year for the next 10 years to build marshes that remove phosphorus. This is not what I would have expected from this governor, but to his credit, he stepped up, said Eric Draper, executive director of Audubon Florida. Scott signs bill to pay for Everglades restoration

C M Y K changes will involve people who move from one address t o another, but do not change their address until they arrive at the voting booth. In the past, those individuals were required to cast a provisional ballot. Under the new law. they will be permitted to cast a ballot like any other voter. That was originally done to prevent voter fraud, stopping people from traveling from one place to another and casting multiple ballots. That has not been a huge problem, and casting a provisional ballot is an intense paperwork job, she said. The process involves watching a single vote very closely; not only filling out special paperwork but also making certain the ballot does not get put into the tabulator. It became a huge burden on our precincts, especially on a general election day when it can get pretty busy in there, Ogg said. She said most people dont realize it, but those provisional ballots are being worked on throughout election day, with workers contacting other locations to determine if there were multiple ballots cast. Ogg said there has not been a problem in that regard to date. Another change is that the new legislation will permit family members accompanying those who have returned from military deployment or activation to register to vote up through the Friday prior to the election. Other changes in the law revolve around absentee ballots. It now will be a misdemeanor if you have more than two ballots that are not your own or an immediate family member to return to the supervisors office, Ogg said. The idea is to cut down on the ability of people to get excessive amounts of absentee ballots and process them. The measure also will require a written request to have an absentee ballot mailed to an address other than the one that is on file at the supervisors office. In the past there have been questions raised about residents of adult congregate living facilities who have been brought to a common area to fill out their ballots, allegedly assisted by aides there. Ogg said such activities now are more closely administrated by supervisor of elections personnel. Most our ACLFs have gone to what we call supervised voting.Thats where our workers go in and help with the absentee balloting process, she said. The law also allows for automated audit operation for post election, however, Ogg said that probably will not be exercised here. Weve always done the manual audit. We pick a race, we pick a precinct and that count is all done by hand, she said. I like the hands-on approach to make sure our machines are tabulating correctly. In addition to voter issues, some elections have been moved. The primary election now has been set at 10 weeks prior to the general election. The primary in 2014, for instance, will be held Aug. 26 of next year. The Presidential Preference Primary will be held on the first Tuesday after the party rules provide the state delegation to be allotted in a winner-take-all manner. In the past, there was a Presidential Preference Primary Committee. Another measure inked by Scott (HB569) deals more directly with candidates and electioneering groups. Under those new provisions, complaints about a candidate may not be filed or disclosed 30-days before a special, primary or general election unless it is based on personal information or something other than hearsay. In another provision, socalled committees of continuous existence will be merged into the political action committee category. The committees of continuous existence were on a different reporting schedule and had some different rules, Ogg explained. This now will push them more into a single category to streamline things and provide for greater accountability. Additional campaign reporting will be required and contribution levels also have been changed. Donations have gone to $1,000 per person per election on a local level and $3,000 per person per election for a statewide office or Supreme Court Justice, she said. The most important thing for voters as well as candidates Ogg said, is to be educated about the election process and changes in the laws. The Highlands County Supervisor of Elections website is at www.votehighlands.com The new laws will take effect Jan. 1, 2014.

Scores from the states writing assessment portion of the FCATwere revealed and the results show that 57 percent of Floridas tested students are reading at or below grade level. A tiny increase from last years 56 percent has taken place over the course of a school term. The FCAT2.0 writing assessments were judged on predefined criteria: focus, organization, support, and conventions. Writing portions of the FCAT2.0 are not used in the grading criteria for a students passing score but are used when calculating school grades. Overall scores for students can range from a 1 to a 5; any students scoring a 1 are at risk of being held back. The average score for students on the FCATis a 3. Many may believe that student performance has slipped asa result of the FCAT scores, which as a whole were much higher before the implementation of the 2.0 format two years ago, but that concept is not likely true. After the state passed a law that required the passing score to be lowered for all students from a 4 to a 3 then changed again to a 3.5, more students were able to gain passing scores resulting in better passing percentages. Approximately 58 percent of students in the state achieved the passing score of 3.5 this year. Students who fail the FCATare not necessarily penalized, however failing scores directly affect the school grade. Highlands County forth-, eighthand 10th-graders are just above average on the writing portion of the FCAT. For forth-graders, 58 percent scored at or above the required 3.5 score, 40 percent scored 4 and above and 2 percent scored at a 1. Fifty-one percent of Highlands County eighthgraders scored the required 3.5 score, 28 percent scored at 4 or above and 2 percent scored at a 1. Fifty-three percent of 10thgraders achieved the required 3.5 score, 29 percent scored at a 4 or above and 2 percent scored a 1 on the writing portion of the FCAT. The open skepticism regarding the FCAThas continued to increase during the past few years causing worry among parents and administrators. With the continued changes to the FCATsatisfactory level, actual performance of students, as well as teachers, will remain difficult to determine. Teacher evaluation is heavily based on student FCAT scores. Low performing students directly affect the school as a whole and have an adverse affect on a schools grade. Schools that repeatedly perform poorly (schools receiving Ds and Fs) are at risk for administrative and teacher changes or losses and even school closures. School letter grades will be released in July. Students individuals scores will be given out to parents in the coming weeks. FCAT writing scores released Continued from A1 school to learn to become a helicopter pilot. I struggled for six years t o get into flight school but couldnt pass the eye test, he said. But surprisingly, when I took my physical at the end of my first tour of d uty, my sight went from 20/40 to 20/15 and nobody could explain it. In the book, Payne recounts other miracles, including his overcoming 4 4 rejections to get into flight school, his escape f rom being sent to prison and an incident where one of his fellow servicemen came back from the dead. His first experience in S outheast Asia came with the Fourth Infantry Division where he got experience as one of Americas boots on the ground serving with a s upport unit for a brigade. Payne said one of his most c hallenging times was when he was assigned to a highlands region. They sent me to the mountains and Im a Florida f latlander. I wasnt used to that, he said. After 18 months learning t o fly and maneuver the Cobra gunship, Payne returned to Vietnam for a s econd tour of duty this time with the 101st A irborne Division. We were organic to the artillery unit. We were generally on fire missions or landing zone preparation t hats highly intensive activity, he said. We shot about 12,000 rockets; we saw a lot of action. Payne said the focus of the war had changed significantly between his tours of duty, with more aggressive action by the military when he served in the infantry, to more of a withdrawal strategy by the time he re-entered the fray as a pilot. Nevertheless, he spent time dodging enemy fire both from .50 caliber machine guns and 37mm anti aircraft guns. Although he never was wounded, Payne recounts an incident where he came close. I had a round hit a hose that looped up around my head, he said. One of Paynes fondest memories was an exchange of letters he had with NASCAR champion driver Richard Petty. I wrote him a letter and to my great surprise he answered me, Payne said. It still inspires me to this day. It is so impressive that as busy as he was, he took the time to write me back. More than a recounting of battle activities, Payne wrote the book as an inspirational piece. I learned lessons like how you have to overcome your obstacles, be persistent and never take no for an answer, he said. What I put in this book was things that help you get over things that bog you down in life and to keep on going. Paynes book is available on Amazon, through his website at www.vietnamcopy.com or may be ordered through any book store.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIts starting to feel a lot like summer and the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team (HHST) competed in its first swim meet of their summer season in Wauchula on Saturday, May 18, at the H ardee Swim Association Invitational. But it was the Lake Placid Aquatics (LPA) team that saw their boys take a win, as well as the team overall. With 115 swimmers overall on hand, ranging in age from 5 to 17, it was a full docket of events and a competitive field. Hardee, boasting the most swimmers with 48, won the girls side of the meet and took second overall with the Highlands boys taking second. The final team totals showi ng Lake Placid with 860 points, Hardee with 801 and the Hurricanes with 713. HHSTsaw five of its swimmers win each of the events they competed in. Frank Brown, age 15 from L ake Placid, won the Boys 15-18 50 Free, 100 Individual Medley, 100 Breast and 100 Back.

His East squad, however, bested the South, 2-0, on the final day of the FACA All-Star Baseball Classic. Miller did connect for a solid single through the right side Saturday, against hard-throwing Tyler Danish of Durant, listed as the 70th prep prospect in the country. He was bringing it, Miller said. He was throwing about 94 and I just got my bat on it and got a single to right.

Sitting down with Schroeder MCTphoto Mike Wallace speaks to the media during a press conference in Davie this March. The Dolphins welcomed the wide receiver in a 5-year deal worth $60 million. By ADAM H. BEASLEY The Miami Herald (MCT)MIAMIMike Wallace is putting down roots. Or perhaps hes hoping to cash in on the latest real estate boom. More likely, both are true. Either way . In Pittsburgh, I knew I was (in) a six-month lease every time, a furnished apartment, Wallace said last week. Id just bring my bag and be ready to go. Down here, I have to buy me a house, get settled in. Wallaces words are telling for two reasons: He yet again took a not-sosubtle shot at his old team and city (Wallace already has said he didnt feel at home in Pittsburgh, and Ryan Tannehill could be as good as Ben Roethlisberger). He is all in on all things Miami; physically, emotionally and financially. Since signing a $60 million contract with the Dolphins on the first day of free agency, Wallace has had to acclimate himself to the area, his coaching staff and his teammates. The on-the-field part might be the easiest. Reporters got a sneak peek at the Dolphinsnew-look offense last week. Wallace joined Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson in Miamis three-wide formations during Tuesdays organized team activities. Hartline and Wallace worked predominantly on the outside, and Gibson was in the slot taking the place of Davone Bess, who was traded to Cleveland during the NFL Draft. Combined, they signed offseason contracts worth in excess of $100 million with more $40 million in guaranteed money. The Dolphins had no choice but to open up the wallet. They ranked in the bottom third of the league in average total yards (311.5), points (18) and passing yards (199) in 2012. Coach Joe Philbin never could really run the offense he wanted in his first season. Tannehill was too green, and the skill players around him were underwhelming These wont be excuses in 2013. I think the biggest things that weve talked about is being able to move the chains, Philbin said. I think really (thats) the one deciding thing that gets you the opportunity to call more plays and play faster. The more weapons you have on offense, youve got to believe that helps your percentages of getting more first downs and creating that type of tempo. And the centerpiece of New Dolphins receiver Wallace feels at home in Miami See WALLACE, Page B5 Associated PressST. PETERSBURG ALCy Young Award winner David Price has resumed playing catch as part of his rehab program for a strained left triceps. The Tampa Bay Rays left-hander, who was put on the disabled list for the first time in his career May 16, made 35 throws in right field before Mondays game against Miami. I felt really good ... it felt normal, Price said. It was a very positive day. Feeling as good as I did, its a definitely a relief. There is no timeline for when Price will return, but the injury is not expected to pose a long-term problem. We dont want any setbacks, Price said. I want to be able to come back and stay back, and thats what were doing. Price is 1-4 with a 5.24 ERAafter going 20-5 with a 2.56 ERAin 2012. The Rays have lost seven of his nine starts after going 21-10 in his 31 starts last year. Price resumes playing catch Associated PressST. PETERSBURG The Miami Marlins have put pitcher Alex Sanabia on the 15-day disabled list with a right groin injury and recalled left-hander Dan Jennings from TripleANew Orleans. The moves were announced before Mondays game at Tampa Bay. Sanabia (3-7) lasted just four innings in Sundays 5-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox. It was first time Sanabia pitched since cameras caught him spitting on the ball during a start against Philadelphia last Monday. He said he didnt know it was illegal.

Hibiscus Garden ClubA VON PARK The Hibiscus Garden Club met May 9 with Connie Ewell. President Nina Seibold welcomed members to the 2 012-13 final meeting. The first order of business is plans for new year. Members d iscussed their interest in programs and committed to host a meeting. The club voted to make a generous contribution to the l ocal Church Service Center to assist the needy of the community. The program, Repotting orchids, was given by E well. Orchids require a special pot that allows air circulation and drains freely. Some plants need very course bark and others finer medium. The pot and filler should f irst be soaked in water. Fill the pot by a third, arrange r oots carefully and finish filling pot. The plant should rest on top of bark. Use pins to secure it in the pot. Orchids require little care. W ater well, feed it monthly and place it in dapple shade, never in full sun. Ewell answered the questions. This is the plant exchange m eeting. Members are allowed to trade it if they like. One member brought a cacti that drew lots of interest. No name yet but were working on it. It is smooth, tubular and will bloom red or white at one year old. Members enjoyed delightful refreshements and fellowship and toured Ewells lovely gardens.

Baker-Robinson is the program coordinator for the H eartland Rural Health Network. She is also a m ember of the diabetes master clinician program and community health prog ram. Gutierrez is the community health worker for H eartland Rural Health Network. Diabetes often goes undia gnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless. Recent studies indicate that the early detection of diabetes sympt oms and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes. Here are some of the m ost common symptoms: Frequent urination Unusual thirst Extreme hunger Unusual weight loss Extreme fatigue and Irritability Frequent infections Blurred vision Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections If you have one or more of these diabetes symptoms, see your doctor right away. No symptoms? You may still have diabetes. One of the things to do if you are a diabetic is eating properly. You should eat six meals a day. Breakfast should be a hot breakfast, if at all possible, and it is the most important meal of the day. Limit eating foods that are high in sugar content. The first three to five items listed under ingredients make up 70 percent of the product. Eat smaller portions and spread them out six times through out the day. Eat a variety of fruit and vegetables. Use less salt. Did you know that if you drink one can of soda it takes you 30 minutes of exercise to burn it off? If your business, agency or organization is interested in hosting a free interactive fun and educational six week class on healthy nutrition for your staff or clients please contact BakerRobinson at 452-6530, ext. 301 or email natoy.baker@hrhn.org.

T ropical Harbor Estates By Arlene Clouston Placid Lakes Party Line By Susie Lee Courtesy photo Ridge Area Arc consumer Ricky Marino gets behind the wheel of the golf cart to demonstrate his driving skills on May 22 while Arc staff member Chris Perkins provides instructions. Marinos love for NASCARdrove him to want to learn how to drive. Special to the News-SunA VON PARK After one year of training in Ridge A rea Arcs Golf Cart Program, 60 graduates received certificates on May 2 2 during its first graduation ceremony on the main campus. The Golf Cart Program kicked off in February 2012 w ith 39 adult students with intellectual disabilities enrolled for their first driving experience. It grew to 60 students rapidly once everyo ne witnessed how easy it was for people with disabili ties to participate. Students range in ages from 20 to 77. The graduation ceremony was designed to honor those students for their accomplishments this past year, but it was also set up for f amilies and caregivers to see them in action. The students put on a demonstration of their driving skills prior to the formal graduat ion ceremony. Andrea Willingham, of Sebring, recently joined the driving program and her mom Jill was present during the ceremony. She expressed her appreciation for the hard work the staff was doing to help her daughter to become independent. I just wanted to thank you so much for a very special day at the Golf Cart demonstration and awards. I came back smiling for the happy faces and accomplishments that you helped each one achieve, Willingham said. Jeffrey and Lisa Crews father John drove all the way from Fort Meade to witness his children participating in the program. The graduation event was phenomenal and it was thoughtful that every aspect of inclusion was covered even for those who just wanted to ride, John Crews said. It was one consumers desire to learn how to drive that pushed the agency to pursue an opportunity to offer a driving program on the campus. Angie Luft, of Avon Park, continuously told staff that she wanted to learn how to drive. She lives independently in her own apartment and wants to be able to go places on her own. I want to be able to see my family in Homestead and go out and do things on my own like shopping at the mall, Luft said. The Golf Cart Program has helped me to learn how to get my driver's license. Its been fun. Afew individuals with disabilities have successfully received their drivers license and they serve as good role models for these students. This unique program was developed at Ridge Area Arc after SpringLake Golf Course in Sebring made a donation of the golf cart that was equipped like a car. It came with seat belts, lights, turn signal, mirrors, etc. Students were able to drive the golf cart around a wide open track on the main campus. The golf cart doesn't go over 25 miles per hour. After getting comfortable with the basic fundamentals of driving, a road course was designed on the track for some of the more advanced students. The road course was complete with lines, signs and parking spots. There are four phases of the Golf Cart Program. There are students who just wanted to ride in the golf cart while staff drove. This level was appropriate for individuals with severe to moderate learning disabilities. For those wishing to learn to drive, there are three levels Staying On The Road, Beginners and Advanced. All three require a staff member to ride along. The Staying On The Road students mostly focus on keeping the golf cart on the track and learning to use the gas and brake appropriately. Beginners took it a step further by learning how to pass a vehicle, railroad crossings, pedestrian crosswalks, signs and staying in their lane. Advanced drivers did the same as beginners but learned techniques similar to driving a car such as backing up, vertical parking, three-point turnaround, U-turns and even parallel parking. Students learned much more than driving. They learned to also respect others who are driving, focus on an activity and proper safety in a vehicle. Even if they may choose to not drive a vehicle, the program teaches them how to drive equipment such as a riding lawnmower which could help them in employment opportunities. I love NASCAR, Golf Cart graduate Ricky Marino said. I want to learn how to drive like my favorite driver Dale Jr. Marino is on the road to learning especially after he scored 92 out of 100, which put him in the top 10 of his class. Road tests were developed to be similar to the checklist that they would have if they went to take their drivers test for a vehicle. Those tests were administered on May 14-15. They had to score 75 percent to pass. The advanced level test had 100 points on the test and two students scored 99. Katie Gibson and Austin DelGrosso, both students in the Highlands County School District who receive vocational training at Ridge Area Arc. Gibson chose to write a speech to address her fellow students at the graduation ceremony. For the past few weeks, we have been coming together to learn golf cart driving skills. There have been many different things we have learned in these past few weeks that will help us become better drivers in the years to come, Gibson said during her speech. Some of those awesome things are learning how to read street signs, putting on the brakes, using our hand signals, and how much fun it can be to come together with friends to learn new skills that will help us in the future. She further addressed her fellow graduates by saying, These last few weeks have taught me many valuable lessons. One of the lessons I have learned is how to stick to a single task. Another lesson I have learned is how hard it can be to achieve goals that can help us become more independent in the coming years. How do you think the past few weeks in training will help you in the years to come? The top beginner students were Leon Gordon of Lake Placid and Carlita Hawkins of Avon Park, who both scored 42 out 47 possible points on their final test. In the Stay On The Road level, Joshua Croston of Avon Park scored 20 out of 27 to become the top beginner in his class. Each of the top students received a plaque. Only a few of the students will advance to the next level of studying the Rules of the Road book to focus on obtaining their Learners Permit to become drivers. Others will move up to different levels of learning. Although not everyone passed the course, they will continue practicing their skills so they can retake the test next year. New students have already begun to enroll.

It was the first time for both of us. Aweek and a half later, we had a big fight. Another problem is I am having a lot of feelings for his best friend, and he has feelings for me, too. I dont want to tell my boyfriend because I love him and dont want to lose him. I also dont want to ruin his friendship with the other guy. My boyfriend wants to have sex again, but I dont. I wish I could take it back. What can I do? Lost and Confused DearLost: Because you had sex once does not mean you are compelled to do it again. Feeling as you do about the best friend is a strong sign that as much as you care for your boyfriend, you are not in love with him. If you are being pressured to have sex, its important for YOUR sake that you tell your boyfriend you feel it happened too soon, youre sorry you did it, and you have decided to wait until you are older to start again. It would be an intelligent move for you because your affections appear to be all over the map right now. I am also concerned because you didnt mention whether you both used birth control. Its a sign of maturity when couples plan ahead and take precautions to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. (And yes, a girl CAN get pregnant the first time.) In fact, theres a word for teens who have sex on the spur of the moment and dont use birth control: Its PARENTS. DearAbby: My friend is a compulsive talker. Chatty Cathy draws detailed descriptions of people I dont know and dont care about and lingers over past and current tribulations. I tolerate her behavior because shes a kind person, but she is oblivious to how much she dominates a conversation. Its like something compels her to fill every silence with monologue. Her personal and work relationships suffer because of it. Its hard for her to hold a job, and she often becomes upset over this coworkers or that family members behavior. It is always the other persons failure, yet she is always in the center of the commotion. She has had a tough life, partly of her own making. If I try to send subtle cues of uninterest, she doesnt pick up on them and keeps talking and talking. I feel sorry for her. Is there anything I can do to help her, without seeming critical? Exhausted Listener in Hawaii DearExhausted: Not knowing your friend, I can only guess what drives her to talk compulsively. Some people do it because they feel the need to prove to others how smart they are. Others do it out of nervousness or insecurity because they are uncomfortable with silence even if it is a momentary pause in conversation. Because her behavior has had a negative impact on her employability, the next time she mentions problems at work, it would be a kindness to suggest to her that, because its happening repeatedly, she discuss it with a psychologist. Thats not hurtful; its helpful. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Confused teen regrets having sex with boyfriend Pop quiz: How do you get kids to eat just about anything? Answer: You get them involved in the kitchen. Theres no surefire guarantee that your kids will eat something they have had a hand in preparing, but it absolutely increases the odds of them trying and liking a dish. Get your kids right in there helping in the entire meal preparation process, right from meal planning to the clean up. Cooking is an essential life skill and its never too early to get the children at the kitchen counter next to you. Youll be surprised at how helpful they can be once they get a hang of things! And with summer break around the corner, dinner time is about to get a lot more casual and a lot less rushed making it the perfect time to get those kids in the kitchen. Here are some ways you can get your kids cooking this summer:Get plantingGive your children a good clear understanding of how much it takes to get food onto their plates by growing some fruits and vegetables together. Let the kids pick out a packet of organic seeds and involve them through each and every step from the soaking of the seeds to the transplanting the seedlings into a larger container. Show them how much responsibility is required to get those peas onto the plate. This will give them a new respect for the food that they see in the market and on the dinner table.Harvest togetherIf you have a food garden, get the kids out there with you pulling the weeds and harvesting the crop. Show them how wonderful it is to snip your salad greens from the earth rather than taking them out of a plastic bag in the fridge. Let them experience the joy of pulling a carrot from the dirt and rinsing it under the garden hose before gobbling it up. Teaching your children where food comes from is one of the most valuable lessons you can teach them.Ask for inputWhen you sit down to plan your menu for the week, ask everyone in your family what meal they would like to include. If your 5-year-old suggests hamburgers, ask her what toppings you should have and what side dishes you should serve. If your teenager says they want that casserole they recently learned how to make, ask him what ingredients he needs and that youll pick them up so he can make it again. Everyone cant have their way all of the time, but we all like to feel like we have some say in what goes on in our home empower those little ones to make some of the decisions!Take them shoppingWhen your kids are off for the summer, you may have to bring them with you to do the grocery shopping more often and that is wonderful. Use it as a learning opportunity. Let your 5-year-old pick out the toppings that will go on those burgers she wants. Tell her why youre buying the local, grass-fed beef to make them with. Show the children the nutritional labels of the products you buy and the products you dont, so they can get familiar with how to make better choices. Explain why you choose the organic celery over the non-organic celery even though it costs more. Let the kids take turns choosing a new fruit or vegetable to try that week. Kids are little sponges and they are eatingall of this up!Get help with the putting awayT ell your child why youre asking them to put the celery in the crisper drawer. Talk a little bit about the vitamins and nutrients that are in that kale as you put it away. Explain that the tomatoes are going on the window sill so that theyll ripen a little faster. So many opportunities for teaching in the kitchen!Get them preppingThe 5-year-old who wants the burgers? Get those little hands washed up and have her help you mix the meat and form it into patties. Buy safety knives for your older children and let them chop the veggies for the evening salad. Have them thread the meat and veggies onto skewers for the BBQ and explain why they should put the veggies and meats on separate skewers if they want them to cook evenly.Make your kids feel welcome in the kitchenIts okay to shoe them out every now and then when youre trying to get something done, but more often than not, let them make a mess as they learn something new, and have them help you clean it up afterwards!
