C M Y K By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunSEBRING To look at her, one would see a normal black female Labrador dog, one not far removed from the puppy age. In reality, Bailey is 4 years old and the top dog in the State of Florida in narcotic detection. Her reward? Getting to play with her tennis ball. Bailey placed first in narcotic detection at the United States Police Canine Association (USPCATrials that were held in Sebring during May 19-24. Bailey currently resides in Sun N Lake with her handler, 1Lt. Jonathan Cox, an 11year veteran with the Florida Department of Corrections. For the last seven years, he has been with the K-9 unit, the last three of those years with the Inspector Generals Office and assigned to narcotic detection dogs. Bailey is Coxs second narcotics dog. His first Labrador, Allen, was forced to retire when he developed cataracts on his eye and he began to have trouble seeing two years ago.

While the Germans knew an invasion was comi ng, it took them completely by surprise. Landing on different b eaches, American troops faced Germans entrenched on the high ground. Omaha Beach, wide and sandy, was particularly vulnera-b le. By nightfall more than 9,000 allied soldiers were dead or wounded. But more than 100,000 men made it ashore. ByJ une 11, the Germans had been routed from the area a nd the push to Berlin begun. D-Day began the German Reichs defeat. Two million men from all over the country (and1 5 nations) took part in the invasion by the time it was a ll done.

Travis Turner of the Avon Park J aycees came before the Avon Park city council at their last session to get the logistics approved for the Independence Day pyrotechnics. Under current provisions, the parking lot at Donaldson Park will be closed from 6-10 p.m. on Thursday,J uly 4 as will Main Street from A. Miracle Street to Verona Avenue. That will allow seating for the crowd that traditionally turns out to celebrate the nations birthday. T he fireworks will be launched from a barge in the middle of Lake Verona. e began launching from the barge about four years ago in order to get a bigger show, Turner said. We can fire bigger shells and more of them. The cost of the display this year has b een set at $15,500. Greg Dixon from Pyro Display company in Sebring again will provide the fireworks.

County commissioners refuse to let the citizens havet heir say on whether or not there should be a sunset on t his tax, said Mary Bengston, representative oft he group Citizens for Government Accountability. So it will be up to us to gather 10,000 signatures to force them to let the peoplev ote on it. The group was formed a year ago in an effort to get petitions formulated and signed, however, much oft heir early activities have revolved around getting ballot language that would not be challenged by commissioners. e dont want to happen to us the same thing that happened to that recall petition in Avon Park, where the w hole thing was thrown out on a technicality," said Bill Youngman, another member of the group. The name Citizens for G overnment Accountability was chosen because members felt the way the tourist tax was presented, coupled with the way the rules were subse-q uently changed and administrated formed the tourist tax as the poster child for government programs that lacked both oversight and accountability.

See GROUP, A4 By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING County commissioners approved matching a United States Fish and Wildlife Service Lands Acquisition Grant to buy 10 acres of undisturbed scrub on the border of the Archbold Biological Station. The granting process is time consuming, Corinne Burgess, of the countys natural resources department, told the commission members. This particular grant process began in January 2011. In the time since, what had been a 20-acre parcel, was reduced by half. Hillary Swaine, director of Archbold, said Florida has environments of national importance, which helps the state obtain finding to preserve disappearing habitats. Acquiring the 10-acre portion of high-quality scrub is a rare opportunity, Swaine said. The deal is improved because the U.S. Fish and Wild Life Conservation Commission will reimburse the county 73 percent of all expenditures within 60 days. Conservation Trust Funds will be used for the matching 27 percent portion of the grant. Commission votes to protect 10 acres of pristine scrub

Community Briefs By TOM STAIK Special to the News-SunSEBRING ASebring man accused of sexual molestation of a 12-yearo ld child in his care was found hanged in his cell Monday morning at the Highlands County Jail. Scott Alexander Wilkie, 37, of Sebring, was in cust ody at the jail awaiting trial on charges of sexual battery, lewd and lascivio us molestation and four counts of lewd and lascivi ous exhibition. Wilkie was found at a round 2:20 a.m. He was t ransported by EMS to a local medical facility where he was pronounced d ead. At this time the death looks to be an apparent suicide, however the District 10 Medical E xaminer is conducting an autopsy and an official cause of death will be forthcoming, Highlands County Sheriffs Office P ublic Information Officer N ell Hays said in an email. Once the death investigat ion is concluded, the Sheriff's Office's Internal Affairs Unit will begin an Administrative Review in accordance with our gen-e ral orders. This mandatory review will evaluate all policies, standard operating procedures and protocols to ensure a thorough assessment of the circum-s tances, immediate care and response provided to t he inmate in this case. The family has been notified and we are sadd ened for their loss. I have personally known this young man since he was in middle school, Sheriff Susan Benton said. One o f our retired deputies spent much of his time as a School Resource Deputy h elping Scott to get through some very diffic ult times as a youngster. A s always, we will ensure a thorough review of the circumstances surrounding his death at which time the report will become public record. Originally arrested in the sex crimes case on Dec. 12 of last year, Wilkie faced charges claiming he had engaged in lewd and lascivious behavior and sexual assault of a minor left in his care. The case was investigated by deputies with the Highlands County Sheriffs Office after allegations were made that Wilkie sexually assaulted a 12-year-old left in his custody at his home between May and September of 2011. According to arrest reports, the victim was allegedly sleeping in Wilkies bed when the incidents which included the man allegedly inappropriately touching her occurred. Family members informed local law enforcement of the alleged incidents in October of last year. Released from the Highlands County Jail on $50,000 bond, Wilkie was a no-show at a pre-trial conference before Circuit Court Judge Angela Cowden at the Highlands County Courthouse in March, prompting the felony docket jurist to issue a bench warrant for Wilkies arrest on a charge Man hangs self in jail See INMATE, A6 Florida Hospital Foundation prepares to host Celebrity Dinner By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Faced with a housing authority mortgage mess left over from earlier county commissions which began with the collapse of the housing market and was made worse by the county holding overly optimistic mortgages the current commissioners reluctantly voted Tuesday to meet the countys financial obligations regarding subordinated loans and foreclosures. The members made clear they voted the funds because of legal obligations, and not by choice. That does not mean the commission can set its own set of rules. The State House Initiatives Partnership (SHIP ernments create incentive for affordable housing by developing one to three year local assistant grants plan. Tuesday, the commission approved modifications to that plan designed to keep the keep the same thing from happening again. For example, contributions from the participants will be set by income level and the housing rehabilitation programs forgiveness will be based on the amount of the loan.

Excavation Point, Handley said, hasw orked often with the county and is a well-known business w ith a proven track record. He added the county had never worked with Empower C onstruction before. In any case, there was only a $4,000 difference between Excavations bid and Empowers, Handley said, and $4,000 is nothing in theo verall scheme of things.

C M Y K O n the glorious side of things for children and teens are the weeks of relative freedom that lie ahead. Free time and play are essentialf or healthy growth. On the awful side of things for parents is howq uickly their children and teens get bored. Its all too easy to rely on televisiona nd video games. Its all too easy to gain weight. E ven more disturbing is the academic ground students lose over the summer.S tudies spanning a century show there is an average of 2 .6 months loss in math skills by the end of a summer, regardless of economic background. There is as large a loss in reading skillsa mong students qualifying for free and reduced lunch. T he main point is to keep all young people engaged and practicing skills duringt he long break from school. Teachers typically spend the fall term getting studentsb ack up to speed. As the years go by, children fall further and further behind. So summer is important, ideally blending relaxation,f un and continuing education. For example, backyards and parks are filled with birds, plants, lizards andi nsects. Have your children look for and identify them. Take your children groc ery shopping with you. Have them compare prices or keep track of the total. G o to the library as often as possible. At home, when y our children complain theyre bored, tell them to go read their library book. H ave your children keep a journal or put together a s crapbook about their vacation. Talk with your children over the summer. Ask specific questions so theya nswer in sentences and not just yes and no. Dont, for e xample, ask if the party was fun; ask what was the best thing about it. T eenagers are a particular w orry and challenge. As the Highlands County Sheriffs Office recently warned, the crime rate rises during the summer, largelyb ecause too many adolescents have too much time on t heir hands. Teenagers drink more in the summer and indulge in riskier behavior. A s a community we have t o work harder to give our young people more good choices. Not just in terms of safe places to go although we certainly need those b ut opportunities for them to volunteer or intern in a busin ess. Keep the kidshands and minds occupied thiss ummer.

The property owners and taxpayers who comply with the lawsa nd regulations should be proud of the commissioners for the actions they took Tuesday night. The commission listened to t hose citizens and taxpayers. The only sad part is that the commission chamber waso nly half full. All had the opportunity to express their views. T he commission had already begun to review the c ounty budget and to reform the county government. They voted to authorize county TaxC ollector Eric Zawyer to collect the tourist taxes. And t hey allowed him one to two years to determine if this new policy works. At a time when the news media are full of reports ofe lected officials from Washington D.C. down e nriching themselves and their special interests, our local government does justt he opposite. The cost of implementing and distributi ng the collected taxes and surplus funds will remain at 29 percent. T he process has started to target the various programs the tax was intended for, and the projects will proceed in six months. O ur citizens should be proud that our local government represents that Beacon on the Hill, the light of democracy of, by and for thep eople of this county. Gabriel Read A von ParkGreat to see parents teaching sacrifices of veteransEditor: M emorial Day 2013, The Highlands Tea Party held a flag wave in honor of our men and women who gave all in the defense of ours ando ther nations freedom. This is a very humbling time for many Americans, many of whom have lost family members and friends to the ravages of war. This is not the only day of the year to remember these brave heroes, but it is by far the most important when it comes to a nation honoring its dead. I was so proud to be a citizen of Highlands County, and be able to participate with all these fine citizens (48 showed up to wave a flag in 90 degree heat. We had participants from as young as 5 to 80-plus. What a wonderful sight. Horns were blaring, many a high sign from passers by. Children in the back seat of cars going by, proudly waving their own little flags. What a sight to behold. It is wonderful to see that we have parents out there, who today are teaching their children about the sacrifices made by our service men and women, to give them the freedom they have. This may very well be the only place where they will get this history lesson anymore. Alament to our fallen service men and women. I heard the sound of TAPS one night, when everything was still. I listened to the bugler play, and felt a sudden chill. I wondered just how many times that TAPS had meant Amen,when a flag had draped a coffin of a brother or a friend. I thought of all the children, of the mothers and the wives, of fathers, sons and husbands with interrupted lives. I thought abouta graveyard at the bottom of the sea, of unmarked graves in Arlington, and graveyards a round the world. No, freedom isnt free. John Nelson, Chair The Highlands Tea Party SebringSupport Floridas Water and Land Legacy CampaignE ditor: FloridasWater and Land Legacy Campaign, a grassroots coalition, is currently collecting the 683,149 valids ignatures needed to place the Water and Land Conservation Amendment ont he November 2014 ballot. This initiative would set aside one-third of the exciseo n documentary stamp tax (doc stampses o f conservation, restoration, acquisition and management of Floridas water, land,b eaches, shores, parks and wildlife habitat. T his dedicated funding source, established for the above purposes, could not be absorbed into the general state revenue. The amend-m ent has a 20-year lifespan and would sunset in 2035. T he Legacy Campaign is a coalition of more than 300 groups statewide includingS ierra Club, Audubon Florida, League of Women V oters of Florida, Florida Native Plant Society, Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, a nd many more. Together with more than 3,000 volunteers, this coalition is hard at work gathering signatures and informing the publica bout this groundbreaking amendment. The doc stamp tax, paid whenever real estate is bought or sold, is an existingf unding source that for the past 20 years has been used f or conservation programs such as Florida Forever andb efore that, Preservation 2000. Both programs received resounding support from Republicans and Democrats alike. But since2 009, funding for these programs has been slashed by 97.5 percent. And of the $75 million in conservation funding proposed by currentG overnor Rick Scott, $50 million of that would come from the sale of existing state lands. With more than 100,000 signatures collected through volunteer efforts alone, the Water and Land Conservation Amendment has already triggered the Supreme Court review of the amendment language; the campaign expects to receive approval in the next 60 days. Despite the commendable progress, the Legacy Campaign still needs the help of citizens statewide. With an approaching deadline of Nov. 30, 2013, they ask that Floridians answer the call to action and help collect signatures for this cause. The campaign will provide volunteers with the necessary training and all of the materials they will need. The grassroots effort of this campaign is essential to sending a message to the legislature and lawmakers of Florida that Floridians care about their environment and are willing to work hard to protect it. We are all Florida. Floridians understand that protecting our water and land is important to our economy and quality of life. This will be the most significant environmental issue put in front of Florida in our lifetimes. We want to let the people decide if clean water and natural land are a legacy we want to safeguard for future generations.

L ast month marked the 50th anniversary of National Older Americans Month. DuringM ay, we celebrate the important role that seniors have in our community. The month also highlights the unique needs of seniors, as well as the challenges we face as we strive to build strong communities that fullys upport the needs of our older residents. Seniors improve our communities in many ways. For example, every year volunteers provide more than 450 million hours of service in Florida. The value of theirs ervices exceeds $10 billion. Our libraries, hospitals, churches, and service organizations all rely heavily on the contributions of senior volunteers. Seniors also have a tremendous economic impact on our communities. According to the Florida Department of Elder Affairs (DOEA Floridas second largest economic sector. Florida seniors have $135 billion in spending power. Half of all new home construction within our state is tied to our older residents. Seniors also contribute $3.5 in charitable giving and $1 billion towards local school taxes. As important as it is for us to recognize the value that seniors add our communities, it is equally important for us to recognize their unique needs. There are more than 3.6 million residents in the state of Florida who are age 65 or greater. Of these, over 630,000 have two or more disabilities. There are also an estimated 450,000 cases of Alzheimers disease in Florida. There are also over 730,000 veterans age 65 or greater living in Florida. Of these, more than 133,000 are at least 85 years of age. These veterans deserve honor, respect, and our support. Each year, NU-HOPE Elder Care Services assists over 800 seniors in Highlands and Hardee County. Our goal is to provide the services necessary to allow seniors to maintain their independence, dignity, and self worth, while helping them to avoid or delay nursing home placement. However, we cannot do this alone. Grant funding is not adequate to fully address the needs within our community. Sadly, more than 400 seniors in Hardee and Highlands County remain on waiting lists for services. Let us resolve to work together to increase the availability of critically needed services. Our community has reaped the benefits provided by our older residents. It is our duty to ensure that our community also has the ability to address their unique needs.

C M Y K B y BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID Attention artists and artisans, the Caladium Arts & Crafts Co-op is looking for you. In fact, Co-Op officials say the group is hosting an Artisans Evening from 47 p.m. Thursday. Co-Op president Judy Nicewicz said the event would provide an opportunity for artists and fine craftsp eople in nearly any medium to come in, meet the m embers and have a look at their 10,000-square-foot facility. Wed like to see if they would like to become mem-b ers and put some of their w ork on display and for sale here, she said. Nicewicz said the area has exploded with new artists over the past several yearsa nd there is the possibility that not all of them have seen or visited the Lake Placid cooperative. C arved from an old IGA Supermarket location at 132E Interlake Blvd. some 20 y ears ago, the Co-Op has become an epicenter bothf or local artisans looking to s ell their wares as well as shoppers in search of interesting, one-of-a-kind piecesc onceived and designed by locals. e dont have anything made in China, Nicewicz explained. We center in on quality and originality t heres nothing massed produced here. Another feature of the CoOp is diversity, with only a couple of any one type of art or medium permitted. That means in addition to curbing people from competing with each other for similar work, there are many more choices in terms of the scope and p rice of items. N ot everybody gets their p ieces on the floor. Work picked for display has to rise to a certain level o f creativity and workmanship. Shoppers will not see wind chimes made from oldb eer bottles or ash trays conc octed from a used tire. Its whats called a juried s ystem, Nicewicz explained. e have a panel that h elps decide what can go on sale and for display.

According to Marion County Sheriffs Office spokesman Judge Cochran, Wilkie was captured in a raid conducted by the Marshal service and Marion County deputies at the Ocala National Forest Fore Lake Campground. Cochran confirmed claims posted online that a shot was fired by law enforcement during the fugitive apprehension. During the moment of arrest a weapon was fired, Cochran said in an e-mail. Cochran clarified that the weapon discharge was a single shot. However, details involving the use of the weapon were not immediately available for release, the spokesman said. He was held for a week at the Marion County Jail before being transferred to Highlands County on May 17. Wilkie has an extensive criminal history. He served nearly five and a half years in Florida prison following a 1996 conviction on robbery and carjacking charges. He again found himself in trouble in 2002 when he violated the conditions of his parole with new charges of possession of methamphetamine and fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer at high speed. Those cases saw him back in prison for another six and a half years before being released in October of 2009.

I have talked with different citizens o ver the past year and there is no interest on serving on this board, said Avon P ark Administrative Services Director Maria Sutherland. It takes place in S ebring at 2:00 in the afternoon so it is very difficult to get people to serve on that board. Resident Tim Devlin reportedly has offered to serve as an alternate member. S utherland said because she goes to all the RPAC meetings anyway, it would not be a hardship on her also to serve as the voting member. The meetings were characterized as easy going with thatb oard willing to help projects in any of the Highlands County communities.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Everett Hurst and Daniel Simons were the winning pitchers Monday night as Publix and Pool Paradise, respectively, rode their arms to Dixie Boys City Tournament wins. In Hursts outing, he was matched up against Glisson starter Kyle Helms and the two would match scoreless innings for the first two. The Glissons bats would s cratch for two in the third, however, though Publix answered right back with two of their own in the bottom of the frame to keep the score even between the two evenly matched squads. Helms gave way to reliever Seth Cannady and Publix got to him with one more run in the bottom of the fourth to edge in front 3-2. That would hold into the sixth when Hurst reached the p itch limit of 95 pitches and T rey Thomas was brought on in relief to get the final out of the inning. And it was in the bottom of the inning when Publix would break it open, scoring three times in the forms of Brendan Doty, Jay Bible and Luis Lugo. Thomas then held the lead and got through the seventh, striking out two, to secure the win and move Publix on to the title game. This was a total team effort, head coach Andrew Bible said. We hit well as a team, made some key plays defensively and Everett pitched a great game, along with Trey. When youve got two teams as evenly matched as we are, it is going to come down to which team makes fewer mistakes, he continued. Tonight, we had the least number of mistakes. Hurst totaled nine strike outs in his five innings of work, Thomas had three in an inning and a third, while Cannady fanned seven in three innings. Publix moved on to face Pool Paradise, the number one seed all season long, who was finally back to near full strength in their 9-3 win over Avon Parks Delaney squad. Matching up on the mound were Simons and Delaneys Anthony Torres.

By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Monday night kicked off the start of the Dixie Youth Baseball City T ournament at the Max Long Recreational Complex with all four fields filled with action. Taking up one of those slots was the matchup between Pool Paradise and Firemen which, despite some lateinning rallying, saw a 7-5 win for Pool Paradise. The Firemen struggled against starting Pool Paradise pitcher Drew Morris in the top of the first, putting no press ure on the board before the team took their first at-bat of the night. Alternatively, Pool Paradise was able to find some gaps to take a commanding 4-0 lead. Leading off the efforts was Desmond Gaines and Morris, who reached before Kamiron Taylor would rip a double to score the first run of the night. Norris and Taylor would also find their way to home, with a bunt from Clayton Osha causing a little chaos on the field to score Zach Doorlag for the fourth run. The Firemen were able to c reep in on this lead in the top of the second as a JC Firemen unable to hose down Pool Paradise See DIXIE, Page B4 News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE Above: Alex Colon drives this pitch into right for a two-run single in Pool Paradises 9-3, City Tournament win over Delaneys Monday night.

B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The options were siftedt hrough, debated upon and a decision was made as Sebrings Davaris Faulk signed on the dotted lineT uesday morning, accepting a football scholarship f rom Graceland University in Lamoni, I owa. The Yellow Jackets, of t he Heart of America Athletic Conference, were one of a few choices Faulk had, including Ohio schools Heidelberg University and Hiram College. But in the end, Graceland felt more familiar. There are a lot of Highlands County people going to school there, Faulk said. Some people I know, some people Ive played against. I think that will make it feel almost like a home away from home. Four area players are currently listed on the Yellow Jacket roster, including Avon Parks David Edmondson, Lake WalesEddie Chadwick, Mulberrys Stanly Burch and Bookers Deontae Brown. Athree-year varsity player for the Blue Streaks, Faulk saw time at quarterback, running back and linebacker, but will see himself focused on the defensive side of the ball at Graceland. Which is fine with him, as he is anxious just to have the opportunity. I really didnt ev en realize it might be possible until the end of mys ophomore year, Faulk said. To have the chance to continue to play, and get my education paidf or He plans to study P hysical Therapy and Sport Medicine, and k nows it will take hard work and discipline both i n the classroom and on the field. But Faulk is no stranger to that. s put the work in and is ready to take it to another level, Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott said. We always stress that you need to take care of academics and he fell a little behind at one point. But hes done the work and took care of things. s got a good head on his shoulders and has always been one of our main leaders, Scott continued. And with this, he took his time, looked over all his opportunities and found what would be the best fit for him. The Yellow Jackets are coming off a 5-6 season, 4-5 in conference play, and have a host of new recruits coming in. Meaning, the chance for time on the field is there, but wont come easy. I know Ill have the chance to play my first year, but will have to grind, grind, grind, Faulk said. But this part is finally over with, and now Im just ready to go. Faulk is going to Graceland Im just ready to go. DAVARISFAULK G raceland signee By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentThe River Greens Golf Club of Avon Park was filled with young Sertoma talent this weekend as the course played host to the 44th annual Bagwell Junior Invitational. Rounding out the overall competition was Kendall Griffin and Jake Kevorkian, sweeping up victories with two-day scores of 147 and 149, respectively. Neither of these battles were easily won, however. Giving Griffin a run for her money was Lorez Perez, who fell just one shot shy of challenging Griffins title. In the Boysdivision, Blake Dyer had the lead after Saturdays round before Kevorkian would charge ahead, dropping ten strokes for Sundays score. This left Dryer with the Boys15-16 division title, followed by Greyson Porter with a 147 and Matt Anderson with a 153. This also meant a division title for Perez, with Amanda Gartrell taking second and carding a 156. There was still much action going sound the course as Jared Wright and Andrew Penn fought toe-to-toe in the Boys17-18 group, both totaling a 163 for the tournament. Amatch of cards granted Wright the win, putting Penn in second place and Alexander Kaladi in third. The 12-14 boys was led by Colin Kresls 148, with Jonathan Cachon and Nicholas Badyna trailing close behind. Last but not least, Ashley Managan took the girls15 and over title with her score of 158, just three strokes under second-place winner Mikaela Thibodeau.

C M Y K June 51911 Bostons Smoky Joe Wood struck out three Chicago White Sox pinch hitters in the ninth to preserve a 5-4 win. 1955 New Yorks Mickey Mantle hit a home run off Chicagos Billy Pierce that traveled an estimated 550 feet. The ball cleared the leftfield upper deck at Comiskey Park. 1989 The Blue Jays lost their debut in the SkyDome as Glenn Braggs hit a two-run homer to lead the Milwaukee Brewers past Toronto 5-3. The $375 million complex featured a $100 million, foursection, retractable roof. 1997 Alex Rodriguez of the Mariners became the first Seattle player to hit for the cycle in a nine-inning game. He completed the cycle with a double in the ninth of a 14-6 win at Detroit. 2006 Cincinnatis Ken Griffey, Jr., homered twice at the new Busch Stadium in St. Louis, to tie Fred McGriffs major league record of connecting in 43 different stadiums. Crenshaw RBI brought in Jorge Martinez to put the score at 4-1. This would be the only run to cross the plate in the second inning. Norris and Taylor made their way around the bases once again along with the likes of Shawn Algate in the bottom of the third to add three more runs for Pool Paradise. The Firemen offense woke u p the bats in the fourth as t hey threatened Pool Paradises lead once again. Drew Smith and Martinez led off with a walk and a single, respectively, before Crenshaw would clear the bases and score himself in one swift motion with a shot to r ight field that frazzled the Pool Paradise defense. Ty Martz followed up by reaching first base and was later brought home by a John Speigel RBI to bring the Pool Paradise lead down to only two runs. This 7-5 score would end up being the final outcome as the final out was made, advancing Pool Paradise along in the winners bracket. All year we have been battling with each other, we always play a great game with Firemen, explained Pool Paradise coach Austin Gaines. I am sure we will see each other again down the road and it will be another tough battle. They are a well coached teama nd good kids. Gaines then went on to explain that, at this age level, the boys are only allowed to pitch two innings, at which point they must be relieved by the next pitcher. e did pretty good only having three pitchers on a young team. On both teams you can see that pitching is big, but we did well. This was not the only rallying going on, however, as across the complex, Elite Plumbing took on the secondseed Elks team with a losing season hanging over their heads. I f there was a time to step up, this would be the game and that is just what Elite Plumbing did. It was a game of neck-andneck as the two teams struggled to hold on to a solid leadt hroughout the night. The last inning saw a tie score of 5-5 as the Elks went to bat. Capitalizing on the opportunity, three Elks managed to load the bases before a passed ball would bring in the goahead run. That goes to show you the heart of these kids, said Elks head coach Hector Rivera. They come out to play and really that is all you can do: come out, try your best, and whatever happens, happens. Of the rally, Rivera added, It was all started by Brian Pollard. He explained that Pollard has recently seen his offensive game improve, as evid enced by his base hit b etween third and short. In the end all my guys pulled it together and decidedt hey were not going to lose this game. They worked together as a team to get on base and get the hits they needed to get.

Their yard was continuously flooded w hen rain water would run down the decline in the road and settle in their yard,making it hard to grow grass. They came up with a plan toa dd a truckload of dirt to raise the level of the yard, lay plastic and cover it over with mulch. Red mulch now covers the sides of the yard and a path of black mulch and stepping stones extendsu p the middle from the street to the house. T hey placed several planting beds in the yard. One of the beds has an unusualw alking stick cactus that bears deep pink flowers. T his bed is covered with white stones and has a white bird bath. Another bed cove red in white stones,holds a dead grapfuit tree that was retained and is used to hang wind chimes,creating a striking look. Another bedh as aloe plants,pineapple plants with pineapples,and a different type of cactus. Yet another bed is elevated and holds sprawling juniper plants. A bed near the street has a blue daze plant thatc overs the bed. Other plants in the yard i nclude a European fan palm,a fire and ice plant that changes colors accord-i ng to the temperature,bromiliads,red fountain grass a nd caladiums. A huge deep purple bougainvillea stands at the end of the drive. T he Burdettes both work the night shift and much of their work was done in the dark when they came home.

She has a will of her own,the nurse commented to the daughter. No h ospital routine for her, she muttered with exasperation as she left. As I was saying,we n ever seem to have time to talk. You never knew me. The only stories you heard were the negative ones, like I couldnt cook. With six sisters,who could get near the kitchen except to wash the dishes? I was the youngest so I got that job. Lillie would wash them in cold water if she was mad at me. I comp lained to Father,then e verybody got mad; said I was the favorite,because I was the only one petite enough to climb into his l ap. My sisters and brothers were b-i-i-i-g. A nd I wast always fighting but Id punch outa nybody that called Harold hunchback. Janet picked up the fami ly album that she had made for her mother when she went to live in the nursing home. Thumbing t hrough the pages,she looked at a picture of U ncle Harold. Mom,you always took such good c are of him.Janet was in the habit of talking to her mother even though Mamie was not wearing the hearing aid,and couldb arely answer if she had heard. I didnt like my motherin-law. She called me Deutcher Schickser. You didnt have to understand Yiddish to know it wasnt nice. I never did have an affair,so it was strange that the family called me loose. Maybe it was because I bobbed my hair,u sed makeup and smoked. I defied them all. If Im g oing to have the name,I might as well have the g ame,I said. I never did though. Thats why I was proud of you. You had the courage to meet life on your own terms and take what you wanted. So in a way I enjoyed your love affair too. A picture of my old boyfriend Bill. I had almost forgotten him. You never knew I knew, did you? I have a hunch,Mother, you knew I was seeing Bill all those times you babysat for me. Thank you, darling,for making it easy for me to get my life back together after Stanley died. You think I am just dully sitting here. Well, Im not. I just dont want to be regimented and ruled by the nurses so I sit as I think nothing,see nothing, feel nothing. So what are they going to do? Tell my father? Im glad you found out about this Attention Deficit Disorder in adults. Its helpful to give my behavior a name. Now you understand me if no one ever did. I was not scattered,ibbergebuddled. It was just that my head was way ahead of my mouth and miles ahead of my discretion. I always had all my marbles. Well,maybe a few immies were missing. ou know,Mom,I never talked to Rosie after she called you ibbergebuddled. I never heard that expression,but I knew that it meant some kind of mixed up! You wrote in y our dictionary There is no such word. M y way of surviving in the nursing home is that I have a secret place,myr efuge. I can sit here and they think I am sleeping w hile I can be anything, go anywhere I want. I can even think me out of here. So what if it isnt such an original idea. You were always so active. How can you lie so s till? Stupid,how else to get out of this wretched placeb ut to think it? I cant walk; I am legally blind. M y hearing is shot,and my speech is impaired. Besides,there isnt anyoneh ere with whom to hold an intelligent conversation. How are we today? Did w e eat our breakfast? Gimme a break! Ha! Im m y own best friend! You eat the ice cream. Sucks,doesnt it. I know you told them I like chocolate; they insist onv anilla. Yuck! uck,I hate vanilla, but I am hungry enough to eat it. It is not a mistake to use the word vanilla as an adjective to describe something that is devoido f character and taste. Janet,dont worry about o ur being alike. Whats the matter with having a little of my feisty and your smarts? I love you, Daughter. J anet finished the ice cream and got her things together to leave. She kissed Mamie. I love you, Momma. C ome hug and kiss me again. Im sleepy happy. Dont look so solemn. Janet followed the ritual established years ago. She would leave,but then go back for another kiss. On her way out,she stopped at the nursing station. Thank you Pat for not fussing over taking Moms temperature. We had such a nice visit even if she slept the whole time and did not talk to me. Janet continued down the corridor. She missed the admonitions that irked her in the past,the voice following her as she walked down the hall. Those last-minute instructions were so much a part of her mothers unfinished thoughts; the ongoing commentary meant to hold onto her and never let an end be put to a visit. ell,she cant stick her head out the door like she used to,Janet said to no one in particular. Janet,take that bag off your shoulder. It will ruin your posture. You have my permission to leave now. I will not hold you any longer. Janet pressed the elevator button,shifted her bag from her shoulder to the crook of her arm,straightened her posture,and wondered how such a non-visit could be so satisfying.

C M Y K By SANDY COHEN A P Entertainment WriterLOS ANGELES With i ts supercharged muscle cars,ast & Furious 6r aced to first place at the box office for the second consecutive weekend. The Universal Pictures release is expected to adda nother $34.5 million to its North American ticket sales, keeping it in the No. 1 spot after opening to more than $120 million over theM emorial Day holiday weekend. Box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian said the sixth installment in the street-racing franchise was preordained to be No. 1 again. But in a season of sequels, three original films were among the most popular at cinemas over the weekend. Ordinarily,summer and sequel go together,he said. This is a step in the direction of originality. Among the new original offerings was the magicheist thriller Now You See Me,which exceeded industry expectations to debut in second place with $28.1 million. The Lionsgate/Summit E ntertainment release features an ensemble cast, i ncluding Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and WoodyH arrelson,in a tale of illusionists who rob banks and share the spoils with their audience. It certainly has been m agic for us to watch the numbers this weekend,said Richie Fay,Lionsgates president of domestic distribution,who attributes thef ilms success to a brilliant marketing campaignand positive word of mouth. After Earth,the futuristic caper starring father-andson team Will Smith and Jaden Smith,opened to $27 million,good for third place but still disappointing for Sony Pictures. s below our expectations here domestically,said Rory Bruer,Sons president of worldwide distribution. But he anticipates it will p lay well overseas. e feel very good about t he potential of the film on a worldwide basis,he said. It will open 60 countries next week. Foxs animated Epicand Paramounts Star Trek:Into Darknesstied for fourthp lace with $16.4 million each,while The Hangover Part IIIwas fifth with $15.9 million. Also edging into the top 1 0 was the Indian film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.It opened in 162 theaters in the United States and Canada Friday and earned $1.6 million,good for eighth place. s very unusual,but Bollywood films sometimes do crack into the top 20 or top 15 (domestically Dergarabedian said.

It piles up on our hotspots,in our dresser drawers and on our back-s ides. Yes you know that very personal clutter that we collect because we over indulge. All clutter is a result of over indulging; too many clothes,t oo many shoes,too much stuff. What do we do with our clutter? We try to disguise it by putting it in pretty littleb oxes,baskets and plastic tubs. Just because we have contained it does not make ita ny less clutter. In fact if you need to find something those clutter containers throw upa ll over your home. In our haste to camouflage our clutt er we dont get rid of it we just cover it up. We do this with our bodies t oo. Think of it this way. Lets say our favorite jeans g et a little too tight. Instead of eliminating those sodas and sweet treats for a week, we reach for our fat clothes. You know the ones that areh iding in your drawer for those bloated that time of t he monthdays. The ones with drawstrings and elastic; has wearing these clothesb ecome part of your daily routine. E lastic is not our friend. It doesnt bring our Body Clutter to our attention. That l ittle uncomfortable feeling in our jeans should be just the c all to action we need to take the babysteps to declutter. I a m not talking about crash dieting either. Those dont work any better than crisisc leaning. Oh yeah they will help you lose the weight to g et into that wedding dress or bathing suit but after you accomplish your unrealistic goal,the weight will come back and more to boot. Wed ont need any more weight in our boots. H ere is what we can do to address our Body Clutter. 1. Dont wear clothes with e lastic or drawstrings. 2. Weigh every day.This t ells you how your body reacted to what you did yesterday. 3 Never crash diet. 4 Eat three meals a day and three snacks. Eat something good for you every two hours. 5. Babystep your way out o f drinking sugar or diet sodas. Replace with water. 6. Do 15 minutes of loving movement each day. 7. Drink eight glasses of w ater. This is so simple and it is the best beauty treatment you can do. 8. Get rid of your fat clothes. B ody Clutter is not just the cellulite on our thighs,it is the negative thinking weh ave between our ears. When we look at our relationship with food,we will begin toe at and move to bless our bodies. Wehavebeen i ndulging our little princess for a long time. You would not allow your children to eatl ike you do or be sedentary. It is time to go out and play.

While my older son has been private about coming into puberty,my younger son is very open about it,and we have had many conversations about it. Abby,Ill be honest. The subject makes me uncomfortable. Last night I walked into my 12-yearolds room and interrupted him pleasuring himself. I was shocked,and I started to laugh because I was embarrassed. I did tell him he needed to be more private about his curiosity,to close the door and have a blanket over himself. But I was laughing when I was talking to him and literally could not stop. Im unsure what is the right course of action at this point. Where do I go from here? Embarrassed Mom Dear Embarrassed: Masturbation is natural. Every healthy,normal person has done it. It is not depraved,a crime or harmful to ones health. Your son is now at an age when it is appropriate for Mom to knock before entering his room out of respect for his privacy. So:Apologize to your son for laughing. Explain that it was because you were embarrassed. If your childrens father is in the picture (or another male relative),a man-to-man talk about this could be helpful. If there isnt one,consult your sonspediatrician for suggestions on how to discuss sexuality with both of your boys. If you havent already done so,the time has arrived. Dear Abby: My brother,three sisters and their husbands and children and I go to our parentshouse for holiday dinners. My youngest sisters husband refuses to go because he doesnt get along with our family. (He also does not get along with his own family.) Before my youngest sister leaves,she insists on taking a plate of food home for her husband who was unable to be there.I feel if he doesnt want to be with our family,he shouldnt be allowed to have takeout. Our mother is 82,and it upsets her that he doesnt want to be there. What do you think? Resentful Dear Resentful: If your brother-inlaw cant get along with the family,he is doing everyone a favor by not attending those family dinners. Because your mother finds his absence upsetting,it is up to her to put her foot down and tell your sister she doesnt want food taken to him. Until she does,food deliveries will continue.
