REPORT ON ANDERSON, DELEON FLAP ON AGENDA Council will discuss investigators findings on Monday Anderson Deleon See COUNCIL, A6 By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentIt appears seasonal unemployment has returned to Highlands County. Numbers released by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity on Friday the first day of summer indicate that Highlandsrate of joblessness was 7.4 percent in May, a jump from Aprils 7 percent level. Statistics showed that 38,503 people in the estimated 41,567 member job market were employed last month. Interestingly, the available workforce shrunk by only two individuals from the April totals, when 41,565 individuals were said to be available for work. The shift came in the number of people who were gainfully employed, with that dropping from 38,640 people on the job in April.

W ohl, of Gray Dog Communications, and Todd, of Plan B Promotions, have recently proven to be a successful marketing and eventp lanning duo. Most recently, they brought the Girls Night Out Wine Walk and the Canine and Wine Walk to the streets around the Circle. T hey will take on an even bigger task after the recent go-ahead from the Sebring City Council and a push from other city entities. The event management proposal was approved by council members with a 2-1 vote Tuesday, with John Clark casting the dissenting vote.

Often it has seemed a hopeless battle. No sooner would a new place open than one only weeks older would close. Between the explosion of growth along U.S. 27 and the recession, downtown Sebring wilted. Empty windows surrounded Circle Park for so long, many individuals felt a sense of futility. But not everyone gave up. In its continuing effort to re-energize the core of downtown, the Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency is proposing a long-term solution modeled Zoning changes discussed See ZONING, A5Highlands Countys Hometown NewspaperSince 1927 News-Sun photos by KATARASIMMONS City leaders are hoping to have downtown Sebring have less sleepy days like above and more days filled with people on the Circle, like at the art festival pictured below.
C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK On Thursday, Highlands County 4-H held its first rabbit workshop with the Avon Park Boys & Girls Club. The rabbit project at the Avon Park Boys & Girls Club has officially begun. Through donations from Highlands County 4-H and a JC Penney mini grant, they are now equipped with a rabbit hutch, four rabbits and all the supplies necessary for the proper care of the rabbits. Lauren Hrncirik, Highlands County 4-H agent, 4-H assistant Kate Stewart and several 4-H members visited the AP Boys & Girls Club to educate the youth on how to properly care for their newly acquired rabbits. Each child was given an activity book and the opportunity to use hands-on learning. Excitement filled the air that afternoon because many of the youth at the APBoys& Girls Club had never had the opportunity to hold a rabbit before. Through the help of the Highlands County 4-H volunteers, they were able to see demonstrations on how to properly groom a rabbit as well as how to hold and place them in the hutch properly. With this project the kids will have the responsibility of maintaining a clean environment for the rabbits, feeding the rabbits, grooming the rabbits and the overall care of the rabbits. Through this project, club members will obtain agriculture education, life skills and responsibility. If you are a 4-H alumni or supporter living in the Highlands County area, contact Hrncirik at 402-6540 or email email@example.com for more information.

But at the moment, I am in Oregon, w here it is close to midn ight. I have been here long enough that my body i s starting to figure out the difference. Of course, byt he time I am fully adjusted t o this time zone it will be time to return to Florida. If you see me soon after I return to the Sunshine State you will note that between jet lag and having to change planes at OHare airport (not to mention the whole flying experience, which ceased to be fun a long time ago) that I resemble a zombie. Do not panic, just offer me coffee until my eyes focus. People who know me or read this column know I t ravel to this part of the country two or three times a year. It is always related t o the writing in some form o r fashion. This trip, for e xample, Ive joined 19 o ther writers for a mystery workshop learning to craft compelling mystery stories and novels. Writers are not normal kinds of people. We tend, like most artists, to see the world in a somewhat skewed manner. Put 20 of us together in a workshop and it can be either entertaining or disturbing, d epending on your outlook. One morning one of my fellow scribes used sugar packets to plot out a crime scene. We have written about a number of ways to dispose of our fellow man. If you had listened in on a recent breakfast conversation you might have heard a couple of us discuss how to dispose of a body. This is typical of a group of writers together. Like most other workshops, we are dealing witha fairly decent workload. We dont merely sit around and get lectured to our instructor expects work from us. As in writing. Not just exercises either. I am having to produce not one, but two short stories while I am here, not counting th e one I wrote before I even got to Oregon. This meanst hat certain luxuries like sleep go out the window at s ome point and some of us wish coffee came in IVs. Theres also reading. We h ad to read a lot of stuff even before we came to the w orkshop. This week Ive had the privilege of reading my fellow wordsmiths w ork. I am among good writers here. Ive read a lot of good stories. The weather here in Oregon has been cool buto ften sunshiny. We are near the beaches here in the small town of Lincoln City. If I were more disciplined and organized I might findt ime to go for a walk on said beach. Right now, the c hances are not looking good. S o, as I sit here, drooping with fatigue, it is tempting to ask, Is it worth it? Worth the being away from Don for over aw eek? The joys of airport security? The crazy hours and the jet lag and all the rest of it? Yes it is. Because I am l earning. Because, even though not everyone might get it, this is important to me. Because I want to grow in my craft. Because writing is my passion. By the time you read this the workshop will be over. On Monday I will wing my way back to Florida, very tired, but hopefully wiser. And I will (hopefully three new stories to share with readers. Until then, its back to work. And searching for that IVwith coffee in it. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

We at the News-Sun believe your viewpoints are just as important as any community leader or government official, so consider this a personal invitation to get your two cents in. This puts an enormous burden on our e lected representatives, especially in times of limited revenue. Not only is it their responsibility to ensure all Americans have the chance to advance and all neighborhoods have the opportunity to thrive, but they must do so with-i n a tight budget, being sure no one group is favored over another. W hich leads us to the conundrum faced by the Highlands County Commission Tuesday. T he commission has had a long-term policy of never waiving application fees f or any non-profit looking to renovate property. Commissioners have stood by that policy through many election cycles without making an exception until Tuesday, when they voted 4-2 to waive t he Highway Park Neighborhood Preservation and Enhancement District Councils application fees for its renovation project in Highway Park. The group is taking an abandoned house andt urning it into a community resource center. By saving the $1,375 fees, director Evelyn Colon said, the group can use the money to pay for other needs so thec enter can open sooner. So, here is the problem: Having set a precedent and granting a waiver to one 501(c turn others away? Two commissioners, Ron Handley a nd Don Elwell, were against waiving the fees. If we cant give to all, we must g ive to no one, they said. The consistent policy prevented misunderstandings and treated everyone equally. O n the other hand, Chairman Jack Richie spoke eloquently about the role o f government in the community. This was a case, he said, of citizens banding together to save their neighborhood. If we dont encourage and support communities where people are working with t heir own hands and backs to solve problems that surround them, who will? R ichie asked. These people are part of my district, he said. Im proud of them. While we agree breaking with past policy could cause trouble in the future,w e also think the Highway Park project has special merit not just because a c ommunity resource center is a good idea, but because of the work resident volunteers have done. It may be unfair to other organizations to give a special exception only to one, however the waiver was not a gift, but a reward. H ighway Park has set a high bar, its w ork as a community is unusual and inspiring. What the residents are doing now will help enhance life well into the f uture as strangers, neighbors and young p eople attend workshops and meetings. Yes, it easier all the way around to deny everyone waivers, and it might even seem fair. There are times, however, when fairness demands exceptions. Highway Park is one of them. Highway Park earning its way America has always been about fairness. Not that it is always a fair place, but that has certainly always been our goal. Since its earliest days, the United States has been a great experiment testing whether a free people are capable of governing themselves through law, without the need of a king or dictator. King George III of England was the first of a long line of skeptics extending to this day, a line which includes the secessionists who triggered the American Civil War, and most recently Edward Snowden, the NSA leaker. As all Americans are supposed to learn in school, we exercise our right to self-government through our Constitution, which establishes the three branches of our government: executive, legislative, and judicial. Many difficult political questions must be resolved within that system of government. And if we are personally unhappy with any result, we always have a remedy, electing different leaders to the executive and legislative branches who appoint and confirm the members of the judicial branch. The most difficult political question for 19th century Americans was the future of slavery. Because a minority of Americans were unhappy with the results of the 1860 presidential election of Abraham Lincoln, secessionists joined the ranks of those believing self-government under the American Constitution to be impossible. Americans still believing in self-government under the Constitution were forced, at enormous personal cost, to deal with those secessionists. One of the most difficult political questions for 21st century Americans is the proper balance between liberty and national security. With the 1978 enactment of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA the frequent amendments to that act, including the USA PATRIOTAct of 2001 and its later amendments, Congress has authorized the President to act to protect national security through covert action, but where the rights of United States persons are concerned, only with the authorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. That court has been described as a secret court because as authorized by law, its proceedings are not public, and its rulings, with a few exceptions, are not published. But all its past and present members have been and are named and sitting Article III federal judges, appointed like all federal judges by the President, and confirmed for life like all federal judges by the U.S. Senate. So whatever rulings have been issued by that court, upon the request of the executive branch, have the institutional support and authorization of all three branches of our federal government. When former National Security Agency technician Edward Snowden leaks secret orders from that court, hes declaring that a 29-year old high school dropout lacks belief in the capability of the American people to govern themselves through the Constitution and law. Perhaps if he had completed his high school education, Snowden might have learned about the checks and balances inherent in our three branches of government and the history of our continuing effort to govern ourselves and decide difficult political questions under the Constitution. Abetter-educated person with his concerns might have discussed and shared them with the members and staff of the congressional intelligence committees, who have the same obligation to protect classified information as employees of the National Security Agency. But by his act of unilateral grandiosity in publicizing classified information, Snowden is declaring his disbelief in our ability to govern ourselves under the Constitution and law. Those of us who still believe in our ability to govern ourselves under the Constitution and law will have to deal with Mr. Snowden. Im gratified to see that in every poll the American people continue to have faith that we are properly engaged in self-government under the Constitution and law on this admittedly difficult issue of liberty and national security.

C M Y K approval comes the funding f or the proposal. The idea of the project is to market, publicize, promote and execute six multi-day events in one calendar year. The expertiseo f Wohl and Todd comes with a price the city agreed to pay a fee of $2,470 per event for a total bill of $14,700. I f all remaining partners approve the proposal, the TDC would sponsor events for a total of $24,000 (for out-of-county marketing), theC hamber will pony up $6,000 and the CRAwill contribute $14,400. W ohl has long stated that there is a dire need for exciting, new events in downtownS ebring. So many people are taki ng their entertainment dollars out of county to Sarasota, to Orlando. Wheny ou ask them why they always say the same thing: Theres nothing to do around here, Wohl said. Wohls plan to target specific demographics for specific events, just as she didf or the wine walk, is only p art of the strategy. Along with target audie nces, Wohl and Todd are aiming to enhance already established events that takep lace throughout the year in the downtown Sebring area. F or example, the annual Roaring s Arts and Crafts Festival, which is held every February, is one of the events the duo has ideas for to re-v amp and enhance under this n ew proposal. There is an opportunity to b uild upon this event with additional themed events, parties and activities, as wella s an expansion to two days, Wohl said. B ringing in a 1920s flapper-esque party to kick off the event as well as closing the event out with a Great Gatsby-type party are just af ew of the ideas Wohl and T odd are kicking around. Other ideas include enhancing the Christmas festivities in December. The Christmas festivities, w e are looking at possibly two to three weeks for this. We have the Carousel ofL ights (ands a great event, but people always say ell once weve see thel ights one time and we see the parade, what else do we d o? Wohl said. The prime shopping month for most consumers would bea perfect opportunity to expand the list events and a ctivities in downtown Sebring, Wohl said. Ideas include a lighting ceremony,a Christmas walk, a holiday boat parade, a Christmas con-c ert series, holiday movie s howings, a cookie festival and much more. Wohl also discussed a Red, White and Blues Festival, a festive Independence Daym ulti-day event, a flip-flop festival, a seafood festival and much more. We have a beach we should probably utilize this in the summer, Wohl said. Anything beachy, waterrelated, we should incorpo-r ate that. This is just an opportunity to provide events, outlets and venues for the younger people, for the families and fork ids. People are always asking for things to do here and Ive seen other small cities like ours grow. Its an opportunity for the people who liveh ere year-round, not just the Snowbirds. s an opportunity to grab some of those younger people who leave town and never come back. on successful revitalizations in other cities such as Mount Dora or Winter Park. The idea is to attract new r esidents and businesses downtown by changing zoning along Lakeview Drive between the Kenilworth Lodge and the new Centennial Park, south and north Ridgewood Drive,C ircle Park, the spoke streets and parts of Washington H eights. Jim Polatty, planning and zoning director, said at a meeting on Thursday at the Jack Stroup Civic Centert hat the goal is to encourage mixed use of downtown. New businesses are important, but to thrive the downtown area needs more resi-d ents as well. The one stimulates the other, he said. The more people downtown, the more businesses will be attracted to the area and the livelier downtown, the more people will come. This is why the new codes encourage compact, mixed use restaurants, shops and offices on the first floor, apartments on the second to encourage pedestrian traffic. City Councilman Scott Stanley; Meredith Keiber, chairperson of the citys Planning & Zoning Board; Bob Hoffman, assistant city administrator; and Polatty, explained the proposed changes and answered resident questions Thursday night. The first thing Polatty told his audience is the city wants citizen input regarding t he new zoning plan. Public hearings are planned. The CRAhas a meeting on July 8, and the P&Z board on July 9. T he second thing Polatty said is that the new zoning is part of a plan begun in 2010. It will not create changes overnight. This is not for tomorrow, he said. Lasting change will be years downt he road. The new plan has an easie r-to-understand zoning code and makes it simpler for developers to invest in downtown. The vision is to turn L akeview Drive into a city gateway beginning at the Kenilworth Lodge. Properties on the east side of the street past the hotela lready are zoned mixed use, meaning houses and offices together. Whats different is the higher population density of 20 dwelling units per acre to encourage townhouse construction. Vehicle access to the new housing and offices will only be from Franklin Street. By the new Centennial Park, where Lakeview Drive becomes South Ridgewood Drive, zoning changes again, all the way up North Ridgewood to the blinking light where the road becomes State Road 17. The goal is to turn Ridgewood Drive, both north and south, and spoke streets off the Circle into a central business, mixed-use district. Creating jobs is another goal, so some areas, for example between Park Street a nd Pomegranate Avenue, are designated industrial, i ncluding minimum and significant impact, which means equipment and supplies may be stored outside. Several areas will continu e to be zoned for single family homes only, like the tree and flower named streets east of Firemens Field. M ost people simply listened Thursday during the meeting, but some came with concerns. The most controversial issue at the moment is the citys plan to remove auto repair shops and gas stations from Ridgewood Drive. There are at least four businesses affected. John Malinowski, who owns the independent vehicle service and gas station on the corner of Sebring Parkway and Ridgewood, was upset. For one thing he didnt think anyone had the right to tell him what to do with his property and long standing business. ou say get rid of repair shops and gas stations, lets shut them out. Use your heads.

Deleon currently lives in Lake Placid and commutes daily in a city-provided vehicle. Anderson also claimed that D eleon had contacted the Bureau of Tobacco and Firearms, charging that Anderson Arms had been engaged in illegal activities. D eleon subsequently held a press conference, denying the allegations against him and charging that Anderson had fabricated and falselyf iled the charges. The city manager then countercharged that Anderson hadu sed his council position to obtain an insurance policy claim from Longs Air Conditioning in a dispute over damaged equipment. Following an investigation, Smith now has submitted a 20-page report to the council. The report ranges from background material to findings in the probe. In other action at the session Monday evening, the council will consider a new ordinance that would regulate fortune tellers in the City of Charm and will present a proclamation to outgoing South Florida State College President Norman Stephens.

Call 314-9876 SANFORD (APThe j udge in the murder trial of George Zimmerman said Saturday that prosecution audio experts who point to Trayvon Martin as scream-i ng on a 911 call moments before he was killed wont be allowed to testify at trial. Judge Debra Nelson reached her decision afterh earing arguments that stretched over several days this month on whether to allow testimony from two prosecution experts. One expert ruled out Z immerman as the screamer and another said it was M artin. Defense experts argued there was not enough audiot o determine who the screams are coming from. Z immermans attorneys also argued that the state experts analysis is flawed. Nelson ruled that the methods used by the expertsa rent reliable. But her ruling doesnt prevent the 911 calls from being played at t rial. The screams are crucial pieces of evidence becauset hey could determine who the aggressor was in the c onfrontation. Martins family contends it was the teen screaming, while Zimmermans father has said it was his son. O pening statements are set for Monday in the second-degree murder trial for t he former neighborhood watch volunteer who says he fired on the unarmed blackt eenager in self-defense last year. Zimmerman is pleadi ng not guilty. The elimination of the audio experts will likely shorten the trial by a week. Before the ruling, attorneysp redicted the trial could last two to four weeks. Judge: No audio testimony in Zimmerman trial MCT Judge Debra Nelson addresses concerns from the state and defense that need to be settled before opening arguments in George Zimmermans trial in Seminole circuit court in Sanford on Friday.

SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, June 23, 2013 News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE SFSC Lady Panther Taylor Upchurch was recently awarded the NJCAAs award for Exemplary Academic Achievement. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK South Florida State College student athletes continue to set records for their work inside the classroom. Panther softball player Taylor Upchurch was named an Academic All-American by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA e are proud to recognize Taylor as an NJCAA Academic All-American this year, said Rick Hitt, SFSC athletic director. Taylor joins a list of outstanding student athletes who have achieved this national recognition over the years at SFSC. We congratulate her on her outstanding academic habits and thank the colleges first-class faculty and staff for their efforts in helping all of our students reach their full potential. Three distinctions are awarded to student athletes that are based on their cumulative grade point averages. The highest distinction, the Pinnacle Award for Academic Excellence, is for students with a 4.0 GPAor higher. The second distinction, the Award for Superior Academic Excellence, is for student athletes with a 3.8 4.0 GPA. The third distinction, the Exemplary Award for Academic Achievement, is for student athletes with a 3.6 3.8 GPA. The NJCAAAcademic AllAmericans must have sophomore standing. Upchurch, a sophomore second base player from Lecanto, Fla., closed out the academic year with a 3.68 grade point average (GPA). She received NJCAAs award for Exemplary Academic Achievement. South Florida State had 22 post-season academic awards this year which set a new record for our student athletes, Hitt said. Taylor leads that effort with her national recognition. The NJCAAis the national governing body for two-year college athletics in the United States and is the nations second-largest national intercollegiate sports organization. Upchurch named Academic All-American Taylor Upchurch B y TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Dwyane Wade was walking down the hallway toward the Miami Heat locker room in the wee hours of Friday morning, still in uniform and fussing with the n ew championship hat atop his head as his team and their families were in the midst of partying the night away. He stopped briefly and assessed the celebration. ere getting pretty good at these, Wade said. Thats understandable, the Heat are getting plenty of practice at throwing themselves end-of-season parties. Four trips to the NBA Finals since 2006, three championships in that span and with the last two titles coming consecutively, its making the decisions that the Heat and LeBron James made three summers ago look pretty smart. By topping San Antonio in Game 7 of a back-and-forth NBAFinals on Thursday, the Heat became the sixth franchise in league history to win consecutive championships. Its their third title overall; only four clubs have more. And for James, it capped two seasons where he won all he could two regular-seas on MVPs, two titles, two Finals MVPs, even an Olympic gold medal. It feels great. This team is amazing. And the vision that I had when I decided to come here is all coming true, James said. Through adversity, through everything weve been through, weve been able to persevere and to win back to back championships. Its an unbelievable feeling. Im happy to be part of such a first-class organization. James said winning his first title was the toughest thing hes ever done. Its now the second-toughest. Defending the crown, he said, was even more arduous. He was exhausted when it was over and still scored 37 points in the finale, more than he posted in any other postseason game this season. Believe in LeBron, Heat President Pat Riley said. Miami did, all the way to the end. T he Heat rolled past Milwaukee in a first-round sweep, needed five games to oust Chicago in the second round, but then went to the seven-game limit against Indiana in the Eastern Conference finals and then to the last game again against the Spurs, who actually were 21 seconds away from ending the series in six games before James and the Heat engineered a huge rally. Without that comeback, a championship-or-bust season would have gone bust. Instead, legacies were enhanced, more trophies were hoisted, and Miamis place atop the NBAlandscape was cemented. o be in the championship three years in a row, to win two of those three, is unbelievable, Wade said. Everybody cant get to the Finals and win six in a row, like win six and not lose one like Michael Jordan. Everyone dont do that. But we are excited about the future of this organization. We are still a good team. And w ere going to do everything we can to make sure that we can stay competitive. Moves will be made, of course. The Heat have some luxury-tax concerns to address,a nd it would be a shock if they didnt try to get even better through a trade or free agency. All its about now is whats in front of us, Riley said. Then again, if James keeps getting better, Miamis placei n history will probably only rise.

Sertomas second round successes See GOLF, Page B4 By BRIAN MAHONEY Associated PressMIAMI Five things to note as the NBAoffseason opens the same way it did last year, with everyone chasing LeBron James and the Miami Heat: THE L.A. STORY: The two best free agents on the market share the same building. Dwight Howard had a disappointing first season with the Lakers, Chris Paul led the Clippers to their greatest success, and now they have decisions to make on July 1. Will they stay put? Follow Jamesmodel and go somewhere to play together? Leaving Los Angeles means leaving money were talking more than $20 million on the table, so the best guess is both will be back at Staples Center next season. WORTH THE PAIN: The last team standing in the Eastern Conference next season? Maybe the one with the healthiest knees. Specifically, the one whose star has the best recovery from a knee injury. Derrick Rose should be back in Chicago after sitting out all season with his torn ACL. The Indiana Pacers, who took Miami to a seventh game in the East finals, could have leading scorer Danny Granger back after he played just five games this season. Rajon Rondo could have the ball back in his hands in Boston. And imagine how much better the Heat can be if Dwyane Wade, bothered by a painful right knee all spring, is fully healthy this time next year. BIG THREES, BIG QUESTIONS: Long before James, Wade and Chris Bosh came together, San Antonio and Boston proved the best route to a title was through a Big Three. Now, both could be broken up. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili mightve had their last, best chance for another title in Game 7 after more than 100 postseason victories together. Ray Allens already gone in Boston, having moved on to Miami, and now the Celtics have to decide if theyre keeping Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett around. TAKE YOUR PICK: Its 10 years ago this month that James, Wade and Bosh were all taken in the first five picks in what may go down as one of the best drafts in history. This one doesnt look as good.

After Miami lost the 2011 finals to Dallas, James decided to improve his post play by working with Hakeem Olajuwon. Last season, his focus was on enhancing his mid-range jumper, something he continued working on throughout the season with Ray Allen. So with about a halfminute left and the Heat up by two points, it was thatm id-range jumper that sealed Miamis title. J ames delivered with 27.9 seconds left to make it a twopossession game. Not long afterward, he had the Larry OBrien Trophy in one arm, the Finals MVPtrophy in the other, ready for a well-deserved break from basketball. I want to be, if not the g reatest, one of the greatest to ever play this game, James said. And I will continue to work for that, and continue to put on this uniform and be the best I can be every night. James has already put himself in that best-ever conversation. e all know his work ethic, said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, who spent part of his first day as a two-time champion coach at Jim Larranagas basketball camp at the University of Miami. s probably unique for a guy who has been the best in the game since he was in seve nth grade. Usually you wouldnt have the type of work ethic that would match that type of talent. Jordan won six titles, James only has two. But if thats the sole standard, then Jordan isnt even close either, considering Bill Russell won 11 rings in his Boston career. Russell was there for the Heat title clincher, served as part of the on-court trophy presentations, then retreated to a small room not far from the Miami locker room as players meandered in for one of the immediate perks of winning a title a photo shoot with the trophy. James posed for hundreds of photos during his time in there. C amera clicks were a cons tant sound for about 10 minutes when he was in the room. And before he left, he and Wade waved for Russell to come join them for some more snapshots. Get the legend up here, J ames shouted. Russell walked to the front of the room as a few people, mostly Heat employees and family members, clapped. He shook hands with the Heat stars, then turned around to face the cameras and said something to James that was barely audible to those even a few feet away. ou earned this one, Russell said. J amesgrin became even broader, and camera shutters kept on whirring. Suddenly, that oft-mocked, o ft-replayed not two, not three, not four answer James g ave during the Heat celebration of their free agency coup i n 2010 doesnt look like such a punch line anymore. I always felt that when he got up to five, six, seven that he was joking a little bit, but the media decided to take him very seriously, Heat managing general partner Micky Arison said. I think right now hes real happy with two and next year hell be worried about three. James has played 10 seasons now. Including playoffs, his scoring average is 27.6, third-best in league history behind only Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. Since the league began charting plus-minus (the point differential when a player is on the court), Jamesteams have outscored opponents by 3,861 points with him in regular-season and playoff games. Second-best on that list? Wade, at 2,301 points. That gap is simply huge. With an average season n ext year, hell move into the T op 25 in all-time regularseason scoring. He got more rebounds per game this season than ever before, shot the 3-pointer better than ever before, punctuating that by making five in Game 7 of the finals. A nd heres what might be truly frightening for opponents: For the sixth straight year, Jamesshooting percentage got better. Hopefully people will leave him alone a little more now, Heat forward Shane Battier said. He takes a lot of heat, I think undeservedly. Hes the best player on the planet. And hopefully now with two titles, hell get moret he benefit of the doubt. But, you know, hes the best. Hes the best right now So are the Heat. And that cant be argued. T he Celtics, Lakers and Bulls are the only franchises to win three straight titles. T hat will be the challenge for the Heat next year, to take a great run and make it a truly elite run. F or now, though, James wants no part of that conversation. Hes going to enjoy this one for a good long while. s the ultimate, James said. I dont want to think about next year right now, what our possibilities are next year. Got to take full advantage of this one. Its an unbelievable moment for our team.

Kendall Griffin, playing her first round for this Sertoma season, shot a 73 to take first place in the 14-18 girlsdivision. Trailing Griffin was Morgan Baxendales 77 and Taylor Moodys 78.

Will it be Nerlens Noel, the Kentucky defensive star coming off a torn knee? A trade? The rebuilding in the post-James era depends on making the right decision. COACHING CAROUSEL : The NBAs Coach of the Year is out of work. So is the coach of the Western Conference runnerup. Its a turbulent time in the coaching ranks, and George Karl and Lionel Hollins are proof that winning games can still mean losing jobs. Even the Clippers are looking for a coach, firing Vinny Del Negro after he led them to their first division title. With so many good candidates out there, teams looking for a leader can still get a good one.

C M Y K By MARTHAIRVINE APNational WriterB UFFALO GROVE, Ill. (AP rushed onto a playing field to jump a referee who made an unpopular call. No adult hasg otten angry and slugged or pushed a coach or a young player, as has happened elsewhere. Nor have there been any of those embarrassings ideline brawls you sometimes see posted on online video sites. At least nobodys admitting to it. S till, parent behavior in this quiet suburb north of Chicago has been question-a ble enough to cause the park district officials to post new signs at ball fields with whaty ou might call a few gentle reminders. This is a game being played by children, the signs in the Buffalo Grove ParkD istrict begin, with the words game and children highl ighted in bold letters. If they win or lose every game of the season, it will not impact what college they attend or their future poten-t ial income.. The campaign, which b egan this month, is relatively low-key. You might not even notice the small blues igns if you werent standing right by them. But they speak t o a growing movement in youth sports aimed at reining in parents who, many s ay, are too involved, too competitive and in need of a little perspective. I just want to get back to what I was brought up witha s a child and thats, Let the kids playsays Dan Schimmel, the park districts executive director. Elsewhere, some youth s ports leagues are requiring parents to sign codes of cond uct or recite pledges before games, promising in front oft heir children that theyll behave. If they slip up, they might be pulled aside for a conversation or kicked out ofa game if a warning does no g ood. Other leagues occasionally have silent games, where parents and sometimes even coaches can only offere ncouragement or cheer and clap, but cant direct the young players or say or shout anything too negative. Buffalo Grove officials say some have questioned whether this is just another attempt to coddle children. Some wonder: Shouldnt a young player learn to take c riticism? And whats wrong with a little competition, anyway? B ut this, say coaches, leagues and even some pare nts and kids, is about parent behavior that increasingly goes way over the line and interferes with a kids ability to enjoy something thatss upposed to be fun. eve all seen that person o n the sidelines and were thinking, Are they really going there? Really?saysB rian Sanders, president of i9 Sports Corp., a national franc hiser of youth leagues and camps based in Florida that uses sportsmanship as one of i ts cornerstones. In some cases, violent behavior has led to criminal charges in Newark, N.J., for instance, where parentsa llegedly beat up a Little League baseball umpire because he wouldnt call a game because of darkness. The level of competition i n youth sports has gotten exponentially greater, forcing t his level of hyper-competition, Sanders says. I think that is driving a certain level of behavior on the sidelines that is amplified. Haley Small, a 19-year-old c ollege student who played soccer and then traveling softball through high school, puts it this way: The more competitively I played, them ore interesting the parents got. ed joke about it, but its serious. Some of my friends were walking on eggshells, says Small, now a student at Ithaca College in New York. We hear a lot more than people think. It gets so bad sometimes t hat some players wish their parents would just stay home, she says. L aura Marinelli, who coaches Smalls younger sist er on a traveling softball team for 12to 14-year-old girls in Essex County, N.J., also has noticed more overthe-top parent behavior inr ecent years. Marinelli recalls one dad w ho was angry about a play on the field and tried to tackle her assistant coach duringa game. The coach was able to duck the parent and ended u p throwing him to the ground. At a national tournament l ast year, she says a father of a player was so unhappy with a decision shed made that he ran at her in the dugout, screaming and pointing in herf ace, causing some of her players to cry. Ultimately, she asked his daughter to leave the team because she felt the dad had repeatedly violatedt he teams code of conduct. The girl is a phenomenal s oftball player. Shes a sweetheart and a great kid,M arinelli says. But I cant have a parent like that on the sidelines. Kicking kids off teams is one of the more serious pun-i shments that leagues and coaches use to try to keep parents under control. Some leagues and tournament officials also are giving umpiresm ore power to warn offending parents and coaches and then ask them to leave the premises if they ignore the warning. It can be an effective deterrent, though in many other instances, umpires or referees at youth games are often teenagers who may not have t he experience or confidence to stand up to parents. And often, theres no secur ity at games. So parents are left to police themselves. S he says the signs asking adults to behave are a nice idea perhaps even a way to get people talking about the issue. But ultimately, shed oesnt think the tactic will work. I think the worst offenders dont think they are the worst offenders, Kirby says, conceding that maybe evens he was one of those parents, once upon a time. And then I got a little perspective, she says. Greg Dale, a sports psyc hologist at Duke University, agrees that its difficult for parents to see themselves as that parent, at least withouta little help. H e recalls a mom in California telling him about a dad she called leather lungs because he yelled so often at the people on the field. H esitant to approach him, the woman secretly filmed him at several games anda nonymously sent him the video. And the guy changed the way he was acting fromt hen on, Dale says. More often, though, he s ays he sees parents who say the right things about sportsmanship maybee ven reciting a pledge before a game, as is the case at his o wn childrens Little League games. Those things help. But ultimately, I think theyre Band-Aids, says Dale, whow rote The Fulfilling Ride: A Parents Guide to Helping A thletes Have a Successful Sport Experience. e dont want to just shut people up and make themf eel like they cant say anything, says Grolnick, who wrote the book Pressured Parents, Stressed-Out Kids: Dealing with CompetitionW hile Raising a Successful Child. But theres a happy medium, even for the most wellintentioned parents ande ven when theyre not yelling or fighting says Mike Cherenson, a youth sports coach who founded a lacrosse league in his town,P equannock, N.J. He tells the story of a firstgrade soccer game, when ay oung goalie was having trouble stopping the ball. Her mom ran onto the field tob lock it for her. Everyone had a good l augh no harm, no foul, Cherenson says. But I think it does depict a larger prob-l em. There seems to be an i nability to separate yourself from your child.

C M Y K Summertime has arrived! Visions of sandy beachesf raught with brightly colored umbrellas and waves crashing upon the shore may fill our minds. Summer is a time when most folks decide tos hed a few pounds in an effort to look good in their bathing suits. With hot weather, lighter meals become more popular ands alads become the food of choice. Ironically, while the h uman race is thinking about slimming down, the animals on the planet are looking tof atten up a bit. The bounty of spring is like a giant s upermarket for many critters and its a time for them to enjoy the availability off ood. The warmth of summers sun and the rain make f or many productive days for the critters that are gathering their meals. The i nsects that summer b rings may not be popular toh umans, but the b irds and fish sure do like t hem around. The hatchlings in nests from spring are hungry and have plenty of opportunity tog orge on flying bugs that hover around their nests. In fact, many species of birds raise second broods in the summer months. Bass ando ther species of fish are common sites when they j ump out of the water in an effort to catch a passingd ragonfly or other insect. Migrant birds molt and sport new feathers to fly south for the coming winter months. Since feathers arec omposed largely of protein, this is the time for them to eat their fill and fatten up for the trip. Some birds actually double their weight beforet he long flight before the winter. Summer is prime breeding time for frogs and toads. In fact, if you hear the beautiful sounds of chirping, honking and croaking during the warm, balmy evenings, c hances are the frogs and toads are singing in an effort to find a mate. Simply takinga walk to a nearby pond or lake with a flashlight maye nable you to see any number of frogs, toads and l izards where the insects are swarming in abundance. You may even find yours elf being barked at by the barking tree frog, which is F loridas largest native tree frog, reaching lengths of up to 2 1 inches. Named for i ts distinct call, when the barking tree frog sings it sounds like a pack of hounds yowling. The males use their calls while floating in shal-l ow ponds. Alligators are very active during the summer months. Mating season is between May and July and malesw ander from place to watery place looking for mates and b attling every other male they come in contact with. M eanwhile, the females are seeking great nesting sites and protecting their eggs. Momma gator is a fierce guardian of her younga nd will attack most anything that gets near her babies. Her nest may contain anywhere from 20 to 70 eggs which are incubated withinw et vegetation and mud. Gopher tortoises are also out scouting for mates in the summer months. Breeding season is between April and November with a peak between May and June. The mating ritual is quite a site t o see. The female is circled by the male who continuously bobs his head up and down. He bites her legs and shell while the ritual ensues.F emales lay their eggs in a sandy mound near their tunn el entrance. She may lay anywhere from three to 14 eggs, whichi ncubate underground for about 100 days. Temperature w ill determine if the eggs produce a male or female; if the thermometer climbs a bove 85 degrees, the hatchlings will be girls, if it falls below 85 degrees, a male will be hatched. Male bears are out looki ng for mates. Females are out foraging for food for themselves and their cubs. After the winter season anda loss of about 25 percent of t heir body weight, these creatures are pretty hungry a nd the fresh growth of plants and fruits bring themo ut into the open. Black bears have great e yesight, perhaps as good as humans and it is said that they can see color. They also have excellent hearing and a great sense of smell. Theyc an smell scents up to a mile away. Bears are curious anim als and often stand on their hind legs to sniff things above them. A fter about two years, during the summer, the bear c ubs will go off on their own. By now, momma bear has taken care of the kids f or a couple of years and has entered the breeding cycle again. Wildlife certainly looks forward to these warmerm onths and the plentiful abundance of food and opportunities they provide.

News From T he Watershed Corine Burgess By DAVID BAUDER A PTelevision WriterNEWYORK Paula D een should hope for more fans like Jennifer Everett of Tyler, Texas, who carried a shopping bag filled with $53 worth of mer-c handise from the celebrity chefs Georgia store on Thursday. Aday earlier, it was revealed that Deen admitted during question-i ng in a lawsuit that she had slurred blacks in the past. Who hasnt ever said that word? Everett said. I dont think any less of her.S hes super friendly. Shes a warm person who wouldn t hurt a fly Deens admission that she had used the N-word int he past wasnt the first time the queen o f comfort foods mouth had gotten her into big trouble. She said in 2012 that for three yearss he hid her Type 2 diabetes while cont inuing to cook the calorieladen food thats bad for people like her. H ypocrisy is one thing, hostility another. From her d ays as a divorced mother selling bag lunches on the streets of Savannah, Deen h as parlayed her folksy, Southern gal charm into an empire that includes Food Network TVshows, cookbooks, magazines and aw ide swath of product endorsements. Now theres at least some risk to that image and her empire. The FoodN etwork, which began airing Paulas Home C ooking in 2002 and added Paulas BestD ishes in 2008, has said it does not tolerate discrimination and is looking at the situation. She is one of the networks longest-runninga nd most recognizable stars, although her show airs in daytime not prime-time. About threequarters of her audience isf emale. The network, using Nielsen data, said it did not break down its audience racially. Outside of her loyal f ans, Deen is now best known as the woman with diabetes who cooks fattyf ood and has made racially controversial statements, said Matthew Hiltzik, aN ew York public relations specialist. I n Savannah on Thursday, Waridi Stewart of Brooklyn, N.Y., took a p ass on the buffet at Deens restaur ant. She said it was because the wait was too long. I feel nothing toward her in terms o f her being white and me being b lack, Stewart said. The food is good. Im not here because of Paula. Im hereb ecause of the food. But she said Deen needs t o be careful about what she says. Connie Caprara of N orwalk, Ohio, brought her family to lunch at The Lady and Sons Thursday even though she had read about Deens remarks. Shes aid boycotting the restaurant would unfairly punish its employees. eve all said things we didnt mean to says aid Caprara, a 48-year-old billing agent for a medical p ractice. But somebody in her position really needs tof ilter whatever comes out of her mouth. C ould Paula Deens words bring down her cooking empire? D een CROSSWORDSOLUTION

When I mentioned to a retired friend my desire to movet o a Southern state known for economic friendliness toward retirees, I discovered shew as thinking the same thing. We decided it would be g ood to buy a house together as tenants in common with rights of sur-v ivorship, and to share living expenses. Because I h ave no family and my friend has very little, neither of us cares what thes urvivor does with the house. O ur main concern is whether or not were too old to make new friends and start a new life. It sounds exciting, but Imw ondering whether you or your readers have had any e xperience moving 1,000 miles away at this stage of life. Contemplating Change in Rhode Island D earContemplating: Change can be an exciting and stimulating experience, a nd many retirees have successfully relocated. However, and I cannot stress this too strongly, before heading off for theg reat unknown, you and your friend should consider renting a place for a year. It will give you a chance to gauge your compatibilitya nd learn about the community before locking y ourselves in with a mortgage. And if you haventa lready, each of you should review your plans with an attorney of your own. DearAbby: Im a sing le, successful professional woman who carries her weight in one place my belly. Despite many diets and exercise programs, Ia m unable to lose my belly. Because of this, Im often mistaken for being pregnant. Strangers in shopping malls, at professional seminars and in hotels while traveling will ask me whenI am due. My usual response is, Im not pregnant. Im just chubby and need to hit the gym. (The other evening, though, I responded, Not soon enough!) The last straw was at a r ecent book signing where the author wrote, Enjoy your growing life. Anyt houghts? Not ABaby Bump in Milwaukee DearNot A B aby Bump: I do have a few. Have you considered wearing a founda-t ion garment? If you already wear one, then I have more suggestions.F irst, discuss this with your doctor, a nutritionist and a p ersonal trainer. And if they cant help you, talk to a board-certified plastic s urgeon about liposuction. D earAbby: Is it proper for my husband and I to share a meal when dining out with friends? Restaurant portions areq uite large and we eat out most nights. W e find sharing is better not only for our health but also for our waistlines. Weu sually order an appetizer, a salad, an entree, dessert, c offee and a nice bottle of wine. My husband tips 20 percent of the total of the c heck. I dont want to offend my friends and Id like your guidance in this matter. Thank you. Careful Eater in Caramel, Ind. DearCareful: There is nothing rude about suggesting to your dinner compan-i ons that you ask the server for separate checks for the r eason you stated.

Patience is necessary this week, Aries Dear Abby Are you a pleasure seeker? And if so, exactly what do you mean by that? Is it ungodly to pursue p leasure and embrace it as part of our Christian heritage? Lots of questionsand now, hopefully, some pleasurable answers! Devoting our life in the pursuit of pleasure to please ourselves and live selfishly is hedonism.Its unlikely going to take into consideration whether our desires fit within Gods design for them.Pleasure is lifted above godly living; and is a counterfeit offering of short-lived happiness instead of lasting joy. However, the Bible clearly shows us that God designed pleasure and, therefore, if we want to live a fulfilling pleasurable life, we need his keys to open the doors to the real thing. In Psalm 100:1-4, NKJV, we read, Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!Serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. Several keys are presented to us here. First, praising God!Serving God with gladness (pleasure! singing before him. Another of those keys is in knowing who we are e are His peopleHe has made us, not we ourselves. When we have our identity in God, we know who we are and whose we are and that knowledge frees us to pursue our pleasure in him with thanksgiving. Have you ever looked up at a star-studded night sky? Or, stood at the edge of the ocean and let wave after wave come and splash you while the waters go no further than Gods design allows?Have you climbed a mountain and looked out from its summit awed by the sheer beauty and joy that fills your soul? These experiences point us to the Giver of pleasure true pleasure. Psalm 84:11b reminds us, No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly God is good and loves to bring pleasure to his people. When times get tough, he is our Sustainer. And when we come out on the other side, God wants us to celebrate. God expects us to enjoy life.It is his gift to us.So pursue your pleasure in and through him.He is the supreme beauty and central reality. Pursue pure joy, not polluted pleasure.Selah.
