C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comS EBRING Over the past few years, the Heartland Food Reservoir has become more than just a place to pick up food for those in need; its become a lifeline that touches the lives of thousands of people across the Heartland. The food bank works and operates with the help of volunteers and local g rocery stores. Food used by the r eservoir comes from right here in the county and goes directly into the hands of the needy. Theres local stores here and a couple in Wauchula that give food to us so that we can stock our shelves, said volunteer Marjorie Blanda. Why throw it away when we can take it? Blanda says that the food bank receives food items from all three of the countys Publix stores, both the Sweetbay in Lake Placid and Sebring, the Sebring and Avon Park Walmart, both the Lake Placid and Sebring Winn Dixie as well as the Wauchula Winn Dixie and Walmart stores.

On June 14, the Sebring Sports Associations football storage facility was broken into. An estimated $13,000 worth of equipment from their equipment room at the Highlands County Complex including helmets, shoulder pads and jerseys was either stolen or vandalized. Heres where the story gets good. Deep in Green Dragon Country, Dana and Betty Hurlbut read about the break-in and losses. Owners and operators of Central Security at 205 U.S. 27 South they couldnt bear the thought of the boysdisappointment. The team had been robbed, not just of equipment, but its season. I read it in the paper said Hurlbut. It really hit me. It was the kind of thing where you had to do something. It was especially important to him, he added, because he worked to make people safe all of his life. It was a senseless loss, Hurlbut said. We wanted to protect and monitor the equipment room. Which is why the Hurlbuts and Amy Smith, their office manager, met with seven members of the football team and Sebring Sports Youth Associations president, Marilyn McNellis Monday afternoon to present a check for $5,000. In addition to installing an alarm and video system on Donations helping football program recover Central Security donates $5,000 and security system for storage facility that was robbed Ethics probe is ongoing Mark Herron attorney for Julian DeleonThe (ethics great dispatch in this matter.

The council approved a resolution to accept a report issued by Al Smith ofP aragon Information Systems, which indicated t hat Deleon had been fully exonerated of charges a lleged against him by Anderson and that no further action would be taken by c ouncil on the matter.

C M Y K B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING By a 4-to-0 v ote (Ron Handley abstained), the county commission agreed to a letter of agreement with the Highlands Soil &C onservation District at its regular meeting June 18. The agreement says that the county would reimburse the district the costs of basic coverage under the countys group health insurance plana nd the employer match percentage to the Florida R etirement System for the districts executive director position. The estimated fiscal impact on the county is$ 10,000 annually. The district will pay the expenses monthly and the county reimburse it beginning Oct.1 with the new fiscal year. S usie Bishop is the districts executive director. Handley abstained because Bishop is his sister. Commissioner James Brooks, who is the commissions liaison with the district, was in favor of the county contributing the health insurance and retirement costs. I think this is probably a good idea, he said. Ive witnessed what they are doing, bringing in funds for agriculture. Its a unique situation. He added he did not think this would open a door to other requests. The county and the district have partnered for a long time. Susie Bishop has been an incredible addition (to the Soil & Water Conservation District), chairman Jack Richie. Im for this. The district has been without a director for years, Commissioner Don Elwell said. Formerly, a secretary served the districts board. This costs substantially less, Brooks said. s the price you pay to attract good people, Commissioner Greg Harris said. Were very fortunate that Susie was available. Bishop thanked the commission and promised to continue to work hard to fulfill the districts responsibilities, enhancing agriculture and protecting the environment. Keep bringing in money, she was told.

Fewer teens believe that using the drug is dangerous or risky. That could be an ominous warning, because as attitudes soften, the likelihood increases that moret eens will become marijuana users. A ccording to the NIDA, only 41.7 percent of eighthgraders see occasional use as harmful. That rate is the lowest since NIDAs surveyb egan tracking risk perception in 1991. Marijuana use is lowest among eighth-graders, but as teens grow older and more oft hem become users, attitudes become even more lenient. Only 20.6 percent of 12thgraders see occasional use as harmful (the lowest since 1983). Only 44.1 percent of 12th-graders say using pot regularly is harmful. Marijuana has various negative effects on young users. The National Academy of Science says that people who used cannabis heavily in theirt eens and continue throughout adulthood experience a s ignificant drop in IQ between the ages of 13 and 38 an average of eightp oints for those who met criteria for cannabis depende nce. People who used cannabis heavily before the age of 18,w hen the brain still is developing, showed impaired mental abilities even after they s topped using the drug. The risks are significant, b ut teens are getting plenty of conflicting messages. While medical studies highlight the risks, voter approval for legalizing recreational mari-j uana usage, as in Colorado and Washington, imply that using pot is safe. However, time has demonstrated that recreational use of marijuana frequently leads users to try other drugs. P arents need to speak to their teenage children to reinf orce the truth about marijuana. Its illegal in most states and using it is risky. If parents doubt their message will make a difference,t hey should refer to Nebraskas annual youth risk assessment. It consistently finds that teens may not agree with their parents rules,b ut when parents forbid drug and alcohol use, their teens do better resisting peer pressure. Teaching teens to say no is the single best strategy to prevent them from becoming users. An editorial from The Hub in Kearny, Neb. Teens dont see risks with using marijuana Small b usinesses make huge contributions to the local econ-o my by providing jobs for local residents and also bring-i ng local goods and services to the comm unity. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection recognizes this ands upports small business development through compliance a ssistance and providing tools that can be utilized by businesses and the public at large. The department takes several measures to support smallb usinesses. In many cases the department is the permitting e ntity for a small business and provides pre-application meetings and consultations toe nsure that the business is on the right track to being permitt ed quickly and operating appropriately. Additionally, the department offers compliancea ssistance to each individual business. Members of the department compliance assura nce team will work directly with each business owner to e nsure that the facility is running within the constraints of the permit and the Florida Statutes. Aseries of compliance assist ance workshops, titled Greening Your Bottom Line, are held regularly for the industry. The purpose of these workshops is to keep business owners and operators apprised of what is up and coming, pro-v ide information about how to save money by using more sust ainable practices at facilities, provide tips for compliance assurance and is used as a forum for the industry to provide feedback to the depart-m ent. Another tool the department uses to provide regulatory consistency to small businesses and the public is the DEPB usiness Portal. The Business Portal can be used to obtain authorizations from the departments regulatory programs. This provides authorization for simple projects within 30 minutes instead of 30 days. Subscriptions to any agency newsletters, publications and permit notifications are available, as well as the ability to obtain and submit reports, view maps and pay fees. The Business Portal is located at www.fldepportal.com. The South District provides environmental permitting assistance and support to a wide variety of industries in nine counties in Southwest Florida, including the Florida Keys. The departments South District includes 10 Aquatic Preserves, Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The South District is home to many scenic waterways, including the portions of the Myakka and Peace Rivers, the Great Calusa Blueway and includes portions of Lake Okeechobee.

DEP supports small businesses Guest Column J on Iglehart Educated professors dont help muchEditor: My message to you today is in reply to the sixth and seventh paragraphs of the Guest Column written by Professor Dan Ting and printed in the June 23, 2013 News-Sun as he pertains to high school dropouts. I served my country from 19501954 during our Korean Conflict. My wife and I raised eight children. We lost one to alcoholism. Alarge family was, as a Catholic, not unusual at that time. They are all employed at this time, in spite of such educated leadership as yourself and our president. When I follow and look at the general conditions of the world, about the time President Truman beat Governor Dewey of New York for president and since, I grieve. Look at the condition of the world, the United States of America, the state of Florida and Highlands County, all controlled by a very large percent, if not all highly educated people. The more I look, the prouder I am of being a high school drop-out. One last thought, as I think of my teenage years forward during the s, s and s, in spite of our problems, we moved forward as a country. Not today! Thanks in large part to you, our educated professors. P.S. Time for my nap!

Talking about the Border Security, E conomic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, which we, the general rabble have come to know as The Immigration Bill. Presently it can be found slogging its way through the Senate on a pace rivaling that of a snail nailed to a 2x4 with a railroad spike.M inus the alacrity. Taking so long because the Senate has t o vote on every proposed amendment. And there are hundreds. No, seriously. Hundreds. Jeff Sessions of Alabama wrote 49, but hes playing T-ball in short pants compared to Iowas ChuckG rassley, who offered up 77 amendments.

Of course we welcome d iversity, but weird foreign desserts have to be given American names so we know w hat were getting into. 4. Prospective citizens must p ledge to name every fourth child after a president or first lady. Barack doesnt count. Michelle is okay. 5. When swimming, men are prohibite d from wearing those skimpy Speedo bathing suits that make them look like theyre smuggling plums. Women are exempt from this rule. 6. Prospective U.S. citizens must publicly choose: Ginger or Mary Ann. 7. True Americans shake hands, we d ont air kiss. Women are exempt from this rule. 8 The correct answer to How many liters in a gallon? is who cares. 9. Under threat of expulsion, new citizens pledge to cheer for the USAas at least their second team during interna-t ional competitions such as the Olympics. 10. Any U.S. citizen who thinks Mexico and New Mexico are in the same country must immediately leave. Even ift heyve been here all their lives. Congratulations.

C M Y K By BARRYFOSTER N ews-Sun correspondentA VON PARK The newly reconstituted Avon Park Charter Review Committee is slated to meet this morning to discuss the revised charterf or the City of Charm. Reportedly there were substantive changes made in the document after it was submitted to the citys adminis-t ration. While committee members said they did not have problems with changes being made to the document after they had finished with it,t hey pointed out that the new version of the charter diff ered in several places from the recommendation they had made when they turned itb ack over to city officials a year ago. I n fact, the new charter, which was described as updated and streamlined, was slated to have gone before voters during the laste lection cycle but was pulled off the ballot in August of l ast year without fanfare. Committee members reportedly since haver eceived an email with two versions of the document. F irst is the charter as the group had recommended, with a second version featur-i ng strike-throughs and red letters where new language has been added. The idea is to aid committee members in finding thep laces where changes have been made and the differences in how the document now reads. The Charter Review Committee will meet at1 1a.m. today in the Avon Park city council chambers. The session will be open to the public.

C M Y K Salvaged foods are delive red to the reservoir on weekly basis where it is sorted and stored in the food bank warehouse for purchase. M ary Foy, food bank volunteer, says that the continued donations from all the stores has helped put food in the hands of many peoplet hroughout Highlands and surrounding counties on a regular basis. e work closely with 26 churches in the county. Thef ood they purchase goes to the churchespantries and then they hand it out howt hey see fit. We also work closely with the (Highlands County) Coalition for theH omeless and Ridge Arc, Foy said. T he food bank is a member of the Feeding America Inc. organization that contin-u es to fight the nations hunger crisis. T hrough Feeding America, Foy was able to acquire a Feeding America grant that funded the Backpack program, which filled back-p acks with food for three of Sebrings most needy elem entary schools earlier this year. The schools with the h ighest free and reduced lunch students were targeted Memorial, Fred Wild and Woodlawn. The kids received meals to take home w ith items such as canned pasta, peanut butter and jelly, juice, etc. Foy is looking to continue the program when schools tarts in the fall. There is a little bit of food and some funds left over that will roll over into this year that we are going tou se for that, Foy said. The program fed approxim ately 300 local students. Aside from assisting in the l ives of local individuals and families, the food bank serves as a go-to point for a number of different entities outside the borders ofH ighlands County. Ashley Carter and Emily Jamison, Lake Wales residents and instructors at the Heart Institute, made theirw eekly trip to the Heartland Food reservoir in search of the regular items they use at their institute, which simulates a third world living environment for students. e come here once a week from Lake Wales; this is the closest one to us. This p lace has been such a blessing for us. Im able to come here and get all the impor-t ant stuff we need that we dont grow on our own and s pend a small amount of money. I spend about $40 a week and it gets us som uch, Carter said. The food bank volunteers, like Wendy Roth and Linda B usby, have been working at the reservoir for years and c ontinue to come back each week to serve the community. There is a tremendous need for this in this commu-n ity. Theres lots of people who would definitely go without food if it werent for the food bank, Roth said. Busby agreed. It is definitely needed and that makes what we doh ere so rewarding, Busby said. C urrently, only six fulltime volunteers work at the food reservoir, but Foy and Blanda are hoping the summer hours will bring inm ore. The busiest and best days to help would be Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Donations from businesses and civic organiza-t ions are always welcome to help sustain the reservoir. A nyone interested in volunteering or donating may contact the reservoir at 385-7 885. Donations may be mailed to P.O. Box 7815 S ebring, FL33872.

Barring a reprieve, Kimberly McCarthy will be executed by lethal injection on Wednesday night for the killing of her neighbor during a robbery in 1997. Texas has accounted for nearly 40 percent of the more than 1,300 executions carried out since murderer Gary Gilmore went before a Utah firing squad in 1977 and became the first U.S. inmate executed following the Supreme Courts clarification of death penalty laws.

Herron said that an ethics commission investigator already had visited the City of Charm and had talked to a number of principals in the case. When asked by Councilman Parke Sutherland how long he thought the Commission on Ethics investigation would take, Herron projected it could come up within the next two months, noting that the commission meets every six weeks, and probably would take it up at the next date following its July 26 meeting. The commission has moved with great dispatch in this matter, he said. At the close of the Monday night session, sparks again flew between Anderson and Deleon after Deleon said that piddly issues, such as marking the vehicles driven by the city manager, the administrative services director and safety public safety director with the city logo was keeping the administration from doing the business of the city I believe everything that we do as a council and everything that you do as a city manager is the business of the city, Anderson told Deleon. It is actually the residentsjob to make sure you do your job. If they see something and bring it to us, it is our job to look into that. You are our employee. We are managing you. As a city council person, it is my job to take what a citizen says and look into it. I was elected by the people. ou may have been elected by the people, but you represent a handful of people, Deleon shot back. At that point Mayor Sharon Schuler stepped in, saying we are acting like a bunch of children and called for a motion to close the meeting.

A Highlands County Sheriffs Office report lists Weston, 45, as unemployeda nd a student at South Florida State College. The HCSO questioned the v ictim, who is 74 years old, on Saturday. The unidentified s enior man had bruises and marks on his arms and fingers, according to the report. T he victim told deputies that Weston was not a caretaker, only a friend and he hadk nown her for approximately two years. The victim also stated that he was afraid of Weston and wanted to leave the house. W eston has power of attorney, according to the victim, but never did anything to help him outside ofl etting him stay in the home and feeding him. T he report states that the victim receives around $2,000 a month from his pension and s ocial security. The victim stated that Weston would give h im approximately $100 each month and that he did not know where the rest of them oney goes. He reportedly told deputies that she does buy crack cocaine and smokesi t three or four times a week. Weston allegedly threw away the victims Florida ID card along with other forms of identification when het ried to run away to Miami a couple of weeks ago, the report stated. The report goes on to state that the vic-t im tried to leave the residence a second time recently and W eston reportedly kept him from leaving by forcibly pushing him away from thed oor. Bruising and marks on the victims forearms show s igns of a metal belt buckle being hit onto his skin as he defended himself fromW estons attacks. The victim also stated that the defendant also hits him at least three or four times a week on a regular basis, the report said. Blurred vision in the left eye is a result, the victim believes, from a closed fist punch to his left temple last month. W itnesses have reportedly confirmed a portion of the victims statement regarding a runaway last month when the victim fled to a nearby home t o get away from the defend ant. Asworn statement has been collected by the HCSO from the witness. Weston claims that the victim is the aggressor. Weston isc urrently in custody at the H ighlands County jail.

Ring Obituaries Weston Continued from A1 a nd that Deleon had not threatened building inspector S.Y. Mosely nor David C loud, the interim fire chief, with loss of their jobs if they d idnt inspect Anderson Arms with the intention of shutting it down. The report disputed Andersons claim thatA nderson Arms had a clean inspection from Moseley and Cloud both of whom denied making inspections after the controversy erupted and Andersons allegation that Deleon had contactedt he Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms about A nderson Arms. The report also substantiated Deleons claims that Anderson swore to false allegations in his ethics com-p laint. After the vote, Avon Park Mayor Sharon Schuler then delivered a monologue saying there were a multitude ofc itizens who have been supportive of where the city is going and what has been accomplished, citing annexation, lower taxes and reduced debt. But there are a handful of people who are so blinded by their hate of the city management they cannot see the good that has been done. You do not have to like people to respect their work, Schuler said. After Tom Macklin called on Deleon to either substantiate or rescind comments he made at a May 28 meeting about officials using city vehicles for personal use under past administrations, Anderson then said he had found lies that were told during the May 28 session. Schuler halted Andersons presentation and indicatedt he councilman needed to deliver any facts he might have to the city attorney. Thats something we need to research before we p ut it out in the public, she said. When Anderson said he had the information with him, City Attorney GeraldB uhr advised him that it now would be a public record and needed to be turned over to the city clerk. Anderson advised he would give it to the city clerk in a reasonable amount of timea s provided in Floridas Government in the Sunshine s tatutes. In an email to the NewsSun on Tuesday, Deleon accused Anderson of leveling vague charges andi ntending to purposely humiliate and embarrass City employees in a public setting. DeLeon wrote: I continu e to maintain that he (Anderson recklessly fabricated charges against me with the intent of damaging my professional reputation. My attorney was present at the meeting. This issue is far from over At Mondays meeting, Deleon made an offer that if the Ethics Commission validates any of Andersons charges, he will resign as city manager. But he countered by saying that Anderson should resign if the allegations are not validated. Anderson did not respond to Deleons offer. On Tuesday, Anderson said he needed more time to study the situation before making a comment.

Prosecutor Richard Mantei told the judge the five calls are central to the prosecutions argument that Zimmerman committed second-degree murder since it shows his growing ill will at people he viewed as suspicious who were walking through his neighborhood. In each of the calls, Zimmerman described the suspicious characters as black males. The calls made in the six months before Zimmerman fatally shot Martin reflect the neighborhood watch volunteers growing frustration with repeated break-ins at his gated community of townhomes and plays into the prosecutions theory that his view of Martin as a suspicious character was the straw that broke the camels back, Mantei said. Prosecutors want to admit calls in Zimmerman trial

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The ladies gathered again Monday night in Panther Gym as the South Florida State Summer League saw itsthird week of action. SFSC head coach Kim Crawfords creation of building up the volleyball community of area teams had the near capacity of teams on hand, though Hardee was off this week, in friendly competition. Some squads are in rebuilding modes with young, inexperienced players, such as Fort Meade, which saw Crawford herself sliding from her referee role to in-game mentor. The important thing is that theyre here, to be a part of this, she explained. Ill be going out there next week with a camp for them, and will have other team camps, but this is meant to bring them all together And though her hands-on guidance this night did provide some help for the Lady Miners, they were no match for Lake Placid. While new Lady Dragon head coach Charlotte Clanton-Bauder is still just getting her feet wet, her squad is an experienced and talented group that will be vying for a district title this coming season. And they were in no-mercy form Monday, taking both sets by 25-8 scores. On the other court in the early matches, Frostproof rallied back from a 25-8 loss in the opener to Lake Wales and won the second set 25-23. The Lady Bulldogs then took the tie-breaker 15-9. The anticipated match of the night came next as Avon Park and Sebring squared off. The Lady Streaks are in somewhat of a transitional season, having to replace seven players from last years squad. Avon Park lost some key players from a season ago as well, but return a large core group that will be helped by some call-ups from last years, very talented, junior varsity team. Things started out going all the Lady Red Devils way as they rolled off the first seven points of the opening set. But, even in a casual summer league, this rivalry B y DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Between Saturdays blistering heat and the sporadic rains of Sunday, the Dixie Pitching Machine District Tournament at the Max Long Recreational Complex provided itsshare of thrills, excitement and an ear comeback before O keechobee walked away with the title. Saturday saw Lake Placid get out to an 8-2 lead over the lads from the big O, only to see the junior Brahmans stage a comeback and take a 9-8 win. T hey carried that momentum over into the following matchup and took a 9-6 win over the host Sebring squad. That set up an early afternoon Sunday matchup between Sebring and Lake Placid to see who would face Okeechobee for the championship. Sebring came away with a 5-2 win, which was a relief to head coach Bobby Green. We didnt play scared today like we did yesterday he said. That was the difference. Today every one oft hem wanted the baseball hit to them. Offensively, we normally have much stronger bats than w e had these two games so we need to start hitting bigg er, he continued. But theyre here now, both mentally and physically And his words were virtually prophetic as his squad took it to Okeechobee from the get go. Chance Casey, Blaine G arza and Logan McGann all came in to score in the top of t he first for a 3-0 lead. Garza, McGann and Dane K elsey then each had RBI singles in the top of the third t o double the lead to 6-0. The defense stayed solid as Daniel Lynch made a fine catch in right and McGann snared a grounder and nearly turned a double play. Catcher Jake Jackson also threw out an attempted steal o f second to end the bottom of the third. T he lead grew to 8-0 in the fourth when, with one out, S olan Hutch singled to center and moved to third when J acksons pop fly on the infield dropped in safely. An error on a Pedro Ramos hit brought both runners in.

Mr. Greg Foster of GSF Enterprises has been gracious enough to incorporate his lot into our lease, on which we would like to construct a NBA-regulation size basketball court, STR8 Up president Sammy Telesco said. This will be a oneof-a-kind, outdoor, regulation-sized court in Lake Placid. The youth currently play basketball on the back parking lot area and have long since outgrown it. They need the challenge of a full court and higher goals. William E. Lewis and Associates have donated the NBA-style fiberglass goals. Bevis Construction and Concrete has once again partnered with the program to provide the labor for this considerable project. STR8 UPis seeking to raise $7,500 for 80 yards of concrete. STR8 UPis asking for donations towards the goal one quarter of a yard of concrete is $25, half a yard is $50, and one yard of concrete is $100. All donations are welcome. Please make checks payable to STR8 UPYouth Ministry P.O.

The Chobee boys rallied for two in the bottom of the frame and Sebring was held scoreless in the top of the fifth. T he bottom of the fifth, however, went one, two, three and Hutch came through with an RBI triple as part of a two-run frame that provided for the final margin of victory in the 10-2 win. Having lost to Okeechobee S aturday, Sebring had to beat them twice on Sunday and this win set up the rubber match to decid the district championship. And though their bats had seemed to come back to life with the 10-run onslaught, perhaps it was the drain of three games in one day during Floridas early summ er that stopped the momentum as Okeechobee took the title w ith a 6-0 win in the finale.

Roberts is with Cornerstone Hospice & Palliative Care. They are al ocal not-for-profit hospice care facility. The Pet Peace of Mind program is designed to assist Cornerstone Hospicep atients as they address the physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual needs of the individuals in their care while they offer guidance and support to thosew ho share their lives. They know that pets who share o ur lives are family. That is why they are the first hospice in the state of Florida toi ntroduce Pet Peace of Mind. S ometimes after patients have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, they dont have time to consider if they h ave a friend or family member who can take their pet when they go into the hospital or a hospice house. R ecently, one of their patients needed to go to the hospice house but refused because he didn't have a home for his dog. Out of sheer compassion their staf f p icked up his dog and assured him that his dog would have a good home. The gentleman died shortly afterward, peacefully know i ng that his beloved animal was in someone's loving care. Part of Cornerstones goa l is to include family pets in the patients' care planning s o they have an opportunity to consider making proper arrangements for their pets. T hey will walk the animal, clean up after it, bath it, g room it, board it and even take it to the veterinarian ifn eeded.

S4TLis a powerful leadership training program for high school students. It is organized annually by a board of directors of Rotarian seniors in mid-Florida. This award-winning program is capable of transforming the lives of these young leaders. Each Rotary club in the district may sponsor a delegate to the sessions. Lake Placid was allowed two from each club. The clubs paid a fee of $500 per student to attend. These proceeds were raised through Rotary fundraiser from flipping hamburgers at festivals to putting on the World Famous Wild Game Dinner. One unique feature of S4TLis the rap sessions where the leaders of tomorrow are divided into groups of 16-18 delegates. They meet with Rotarians to discuss topics of interest to them. No holds are barred, and both groups learn from one another. Some of the rap sessions become very emotional with students giving their point of view to current issues that they deal with day to day. This seminar is held each year, usually starting on Fathers Day and ending on the following Saturday, at Florida Southern College in Lakeland. Stephanie Bennett is a member of Student Government Association, Interact and she is the incoming president for National Honor Society. Bennett currently maintains a grade point average of 4.7.

Kennedy proclaimed the ringing of the bells nationwide on Independence Day, July 4,1 963, with the words, s ring freedom bells! I was a White House special projects aide at the time, and I recall vividlyh ow exciting it was when bells rang throughout the nation. I m writing now to ask your help in getting the American people to ringb ells again on this Fourth of July, and each Fourth e very year from now on. As a grateful American, I hope to resurrect this proudt radition. Let us tune in with each other and our h istory by ringing bells at 2 p.m. this July 4 in honor of the 237th anniversary of our independence. Encourage churches andc ivic buildings with bells to ring them. It doesn't cost a ny money to do it. The first groups to support this national efforti nclude baseball teams, the National Cartoonists S ociety, and the Iron Workers, Firefighters and Sheet Metal Workers u nions along with other AFL-CIO affiliates. As we celebrate our freedom, let us also honor the lives of those who sacri-f iced theirs for our precious liberty. Your millions of readers can help let freedom ring. Carmella LaSpada, f ounder, No Greater Love DearCarmella: Im p leased to join you in this national effort. Readers,e ngraved on the Liberty Bell are the words, Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the inhabitantst hereof. So lets do it. Shake any bell you happen to have. Our freedom is something to celebrate! D earAbby: I have been dating a married man for more than a year. Hes my boss. Gerry has two kids with his wife and two more outside the marriage. I have never been the type to date someone elses man, nor do I approve of it. I know that what Im doing is wrong, but at times it just feels so right. We do everything together and enjoy each others company. Is it possible for him to be in love with us both? Why do men cheat? The Other Woman in A labama DearOtherWoman: W hat youre doing with your boss may feel right, but as you clearly stated, iti s wrong. It isnt fair to his wife, or to you or his child ren. While the two of you are doing everything together, he is cheating all four of his children of time that should be spent being ap arent to them. As to whether this man i s in love with you and his wife, frankly I doubt it. He appears to be more in lovew ith himself. Men cheat for a variety of reasons, and m ore often than not, its more about the cheater than the spouse. Consider thatf act carefully before wasting any more precious years with him, because y ou will never get them back. DearAbby: My husband needed a car to replace the old one, so he insisted on a manual transmission, whichI dont know how to drive. Do you think thats fair? He said, Oh, you can learn. I am 58 and nervous, and I have heard it said that many a clutch got burned out by learning. Id ont want to do that. What do you say? Shirley in New Jersey DearShirley: While I understand your concern about a stick shift, your husband has told you youc an learn to use one. I recommend that you learn by driving his car. While many a gear may have been stripped by an ovice driver, some have not. Think of it this way: You may be a natural. And if youre not well, he asked for it. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Tradition of ringing bells is revived for Fourth of July Dear Abby For many new chefs, roasting a whole chicken can be an intimidatingtask. But, really, there are few thingst hat are as easy to pull off(or impressive kitchen as a juicy roasted chicken. The most important thing i s to start with local organic free rangepoultry whenever possible. I always reach for smaller chickens becausethey need less time in the oven and they always come out juicier thantheir larger counterparts. I like a five-pound chicken, which isgenerally enough to feed a family of four (without leftovers). When you bring your chicken home, store it in the fridge on a plate sothat the juices dont get all over your fridge. When its time to cookthe chicken, bring it up to room temperature on the counter beforeputting it in the oven. You may also choose to brine your chicken. To do this, youll needenough space in your fridge to placea covered pot containing thechicken and its brining liquid. Abasic brine would be water (enoughto completely submerge the bird), some olive oil, a handful of seasalt, some maple syrup and coconut aminos (or soy sauce if you eatsoy,which I dont recommend). For best brining results, leave thechicken in there for at least four hours, preferably overnight. Rinseand pat it dry before you put it in its roasting pan. I like to rub my chickens with room-temperature butter, and I sprinkleit with fresh ground pepper and sea salt. When the chicken is placed in its pan brined or not stuff the cavitywith a halved lemon and whatever herbs you have on hand. I like to roast the chicken in a cast iron pan or roasting pan (youcan also use a regular old 11x9 inch pan if you dont have a roastingpan) ona bed of root vegetables. Parsnips, carrots and beets are allwonderful under a roasting chicken. I also put lots of cloves ofpeeled garlic in there with the vegetables too. Tie the chickens legs together with kitchen twine if you like aprettier presentation (I skip this step, personally) and pop it in theoven at 350 for 20 minutes per pound plus an additional 15 minutes, oruntil the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165. For a crispskin, start the bird at 450 for 15 minutes and then lower thetemperature of the oven to 350 and continue cooking for 20 minutes perpound. If the skin starts to darken too much, put a foil tent on topto reduce the chances of the skin smoking on you. When the chicken comes out of the oven, let it rest in its pan for 10or 15 minutes so that the juices have ac hance to distributethrough the bird properly. This is a basic recipe and i s quite simple to master. Theresnothing like bringing a whole chicken to the table for the family toenjoy; its like a mini Thanksgiving. Try doing a whole bird forSunday dinner this week and watch your family membersfaces when youbring that chicken to the table and carve it up in front of them Imgoing to bet each person at the table will have a big smile on theirface!

The announcement came days after the Food Network said it would not renew the celebrity cooks contract in the wake of revelations that she used racial slurs in the past.

Sears said the company is currently exploring next steps as they pertain to Ms. Deens products. Wal-Mart, which sells Deens cookware, was expected to have a statement later Monday.
