By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY firstname.lastname@example.orgA VON PARK Pastor Bill Breylinger arrived in 1987 to be the youth pastor at Union Congregation Church at 106 N. Butler Ave. One of his accomplish-m ents was creating the Rock Youth Center that he says works with 200 young people, 60 percent of them minorities. In 1988 Breylinger was named the churchs head pastor. In addition to expanding the c ampus and building a new sanctuary, he reached out to the community. He and his congregation are committed to the Church Service Center, Samaritans Touch andH abitat for Humanity. Breylinger is known as the alking Pastor, because he walked from Avon Park to Americus, Ga., the birthplace of Habitat. He raised awareness for the organization, as well as$ 100,000. Breylinger said one of the reasons he took the walk is because, My wife (Jane Breylinger) poured her life out as director of Highlands CountyH abitat. Time flies, and Breylinger found himself celebrating his 65th birthday in May. Coincidentally, 2013 also marks his 25th anniversary at the church. Breylinger said that on his birthd ay, I asked God what I could do to honor him. I heard God say, I will give you three messages to preach a three-night revival and the word you preach will bring 65 ofm y lost children home. Which is why Breylinger announces Revival 65 for July 15-17 and welcomes everyone. Every night at 7 p.m. I will be preaching a revival open to every church and to all people in ourt hree-county area, he said. On Monday, July 15 his message is titled What are you hungry for; Tuesday, July 16, The grace test; and Wednesday, July 17, What must I do to be saved. There will be great music, Breylinger said.

Jorge was like a brother t o my two children. He was a freshman cadet the year my daughter graduated from Avon Park High School and left the Junior ROTC program there. Hew as a junior the year my son entered the program. A t the service Saturday, there was a lot of talk about Jorges determinationt o be the best at whatever he attempted, his infectious s mile, the compassion he had for his friends and family and his faith in the Lord. But there was more to Jorge. He was just ag ood kid. I remember one of our f irst years we were involved in Relay for Life. I was dog tired and didnt t hink I could move another muscle only about half way t hrough the night. Briana, my quiet one, was full of energy. She took off to joina bunch of other young people in the center field who were all dancing. I w ent to watch some of them and later learned that h er friend Jorge was the one with all of the really cool moves. She said it was his dance that she would remember. S he will also remember how they were like family Angel Perez and Phillix Sterling included. Thats what Junior ROTC is, a brotherhood, and that didt change when Brianag raduated and Daniel came up into the program his f reshman year. Phillix kind of adopted Daniel and Jorge did what he did best, helping guide Daniel in the way that a cadet should be. W hen Briana would go to the school to pick Daniel up after practice, one of the three and many times all three of the boysw ould come out to say hello to her. Acouple of them were even lucky enough to drive her car in the parking lot, something s he didnt let just anyone do. After all, it was her t ransportation. Sebring resident George Dumont knew Jorge too.H e knew him well enough to capture Jorges spirit in a song, ALittle Time Till Then, but its a song that also touches on two others taken way too early Aaron Doty and LindseyH ammortree. Its a song of searching for answers in t he loss of young friends, but looking forward to being with them again ont he other side. Georges song can be f ound on YouTube. That search for answers is also done by adults. Wew onder how such a young and promising life can be snatched so quickly. We w onder why. Like the young friends, we feel b lessed to have known him, even if it was just a little bit. Like any other parent, there are certain friends ofo ur children that we look forward to watching grow into adulthood. Like Angel and Phillix, Jorge was one of those kids and I feel certain that he would have made a tremendous leaderi n whatever field he journeyed into. He was that k ind of person. Im sure that Angel and Phillix wont let him down and will carry on that desire to help guide othersa nd pursue higher dreams. Hopefully those whose lives were touched by Jorge will do the same. R omona Washington is publisher of the News-Sun. She can be reached at email@example.com Trying to make sense of it all At Random R omona Washington M oney specifically set aside for training is kept in a special trust fund. Most of the dollars come from court fees or traffic ticket fines. T he system seemed to be working well until it didt. I t is a circular problem. With money designated for training, police chiefsa nd sheriffs developed higher professional standards. T he better trained departments, paying more attention to prevention, significantlyl owered the crime rate according to the Associated P ress, it has dropped 18 percent since 2008. This is a good thing, of course. We all, including state legislators, have reasont o celebrate. Only there turns out to be a n unexpected consequence with fewer court fees, there are fewer dollars to pay for training. In other words, offenders p ay for officer training. By benefiting from this training, law enforcement officers doa better job which means fewer offenders; which means less money for train-i ng. If youve ever wanted to know what ironic really m eans, this is a good example: Deputies and officers lose by doing a better job. T he good news is that as training drops, officer s kill levels will drop too. This means the crime rate will rise and there will be more offenders back paying into the system, so there willo nce again be money for training. One might argue that farsighted legislators mighth ave seen the boom or bust nature of the cycle, but we are not so sure. Predicting t he future has never been a science. For example, how could t he state legislature have foreseen another unexpected consequence when it raised t he fines for traffic tickets to make up for other revenue losses? How could the legislature h ave predicted that deputy sheriffs and police officers w ould act with kindness, g iving out more warnings and fewer tickets, saving f amilies, in some cases, hundreds of dollars? How could legislators have guessed deputies and officers would m ake a sacrifice to their self-interest by feeling empathy and acting with compassion? Like we say, sometimes t he legislature cant win for losing. Cant win for losing Every once in a while we almost feel s orry for our state legislators. At times they cant seem to win for losing. Take the financing of law enforcement o fficer training. Wild claims about past presidentsEditor: In his letter of June 19, John Larsen gives a quote from Abraham Lincoln that includes the words You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. It goes on to contrast wage earners and wage payers in the same way. Alittle reflection shows that this quote is very unlikely. When Lincoln abolished slavery with the Emancipation Proclamation, he did build up the weak, slaves, by weakening the strong, plantation owners. It looks like Mr. Larsen is the victim of misinformation circulated by email. Snopes.com says that the mistaken attribution of the quote to Lincoln probably goes back to pamphlets circulated in the 1940s. In the same way, wild claims have circulated that Presidents Hoover, Truman or Eisenhower deported millions of illegal immigrants. Actually, only about 72,000 were deported during the Hoover administration. Taking Truman as an example, despite wild claims that he deported millions of illegals, only 127,000 were actually deported during his administration. Truman did not even personally order those deportations. These figures are from FactCheck.org. There are also wild claims floating around that President Eisenhower deported as many as 13 million illegals during Operation Wetback. This leaves the impression of a president crusading against illegal immigration, especially from Mexico. In fact, Operation Wetback was only in operation for a few months during 1954 and the numbers were much lower. Dale L. Gillis SebringSebring citizens need to wake upEditor: Citizens of Sebring, wake up! Your council is attempting to put yet another undue burden on you. Do you really want to be forced to be responsible for anothers personal property? Here is the rules in most of the lands in the United States. Each abutting entity that uses the easement property is liable for the maintenance of the easement. In most situations, the courts require each entity to share in the costs proportionately to their amount of use and damage to the easement. So, if you use it 1 percent compared to the others 99 percent, then you owe 1 percent of the costs to maintain the easement, regardless of who does the work. The property that primarily abuts to the easement is the dominant tenant. The city of Sebring owns all property and roadways that abuts to easements, making them the dominant tenant, or the 99 percent responsible. The individual property owners only one the small portions of property that abuts to small sections of easements within the city making them the servient tenant and the 1 percent responsible. In some states it is actually the servient tenants duty to maintain an easement, but with the costs shared proportionately as earlier described by the dominant tenant and the servient tenants are paid accordingly. That is, after all, the most fair democratic method. Because when you write an ordinance as the city of Sebring council has, putting that responsibility on me, the servient tenant, that is what you will have to do to each and every one of us if we are to be tasked with the care of the dominant tenants easements and double taxed for this job. We already pay the city of Sebring in taxes towards the general fund that are to be used for the upkeep of the citys properties. This is an unlawful attempt to put a double undue burden and double taxation on the servient tenant citizens and property owners of Sebring for the enjoyment and use of the dominant tenant, city of Sebring and all the citizens of Highlands County and beyond who use the easements abutting to private property owners land and who already collects taxpayer funds for the general upkeep of the citys property. I will fight this wrong, unjust, unfair and illegal burden the city council is attempting to yet burden its citizens with, unfairly once again, and the world will know their wrongs. But I cannot keep fighting them alone. This is affecting every property owner in Sebring and we all need to fight for our rights back from this corrupt local government. Theyre overstepping their lines on so many issues. Not only is the city of Sebring council attempting to put wrong ordinances in place, but if you abide by them will put liens on your property and take away your property and your familys property, homes and business if you do not do the budding of the majority and rich (dominant tenant cost of the minority and poor (servient tenant up citizens of Sebring and let your voice be heard and take some action on this insane issue the Sebring City Council has passed and invoked and forced upon you or you will lose your rights and democracy (social and political equality and respect for the individual within the community) as this is yet another step towards socialism. (Asystem or government that possesses both political power and production and distributes its mean unequally, usually on the majority servient society (99 percent) for the minority dominant societys benefit (1 percent).

C M Y K 24 Workforce districts in the state. Highlands, Hardee and DeSoto make up District 19. Hood said the district f aces challenges. We have been identified as a rural area of critical concern. I w ould really like us to move b eyond that, he said. Its hard to market an area of critical concern. Another problem in the district is that the largest percentage of jobs is in the agricultural industry. Sixty percent of new hires in the district are agricultural, Hood said. That large percentage is a reflection of rural Hardee and DeSoto c ounties. In Highlands County the largest employer i s the medical community. Agriculture has and is a strong economic force in the district, Hood said, but typi-c ally wages are low. The community has to figure out how to bring in value added jobs, Hood said. The problem is urgent, he added,b ecause currently Highlands County has the lowest annual wages in the state. To be self-sufficient here an individual has to earn $12 anh our. Wages in the county are nowhere near that. Hood said the strategy to create jobs is demand driven. The primary customer is theb usiness community that creates the jobs our local workers need, he said. Ours taffs top priority is to enhance the local labor market. W orking together, federal, state and local governments, along with chambers of commerce, business leaders, col-l eges and school districts have created two lists: Targeted Industry and Targeted Occupations. In order to draw new busin ess, the community needs to identify its resources and manpower strengths. Once it knows what it can offer, the county can target industriest hat would be a good fit. At the same time the county needs to create a list of targeted occupations with subsidized training, so then ecessary workforce can be in place when a new company comes looking. T he Workforce also joins other agencies in analyzing data and extrapolating intot he future. Hood said studies predict that the Heartland region will continue to attract agri-c ultural businesses, but new opportunities are coming soon. For example, there is already interest in biofuels and renewable energy,h ealthcare and life sciences, information technology, logistics and distribution and also niche manufacturing (like aviation or buildingc omponent design). Hood is excited by all of it, but sees particular opportunities coming in logistics and distribution. The currentp roject to widen and deepen the Panama Canal is projected to increase shipmentst hrough Florida ports. The county could take advantage of this. It is cen-t rally located with train lines and two airports.

It has been signed by a number of residents and businesses who are in support of staff and council, while a number of other residents and businesses reportedly have declined to sign it. Miller would not say how long she had been circulating the banner or how many had signed it. Three members of the Avon Park Charter Review Committee met Monday afternoon and finished a revised copy of a proposed municipal charter for the City of Charm. In attendance were former councilman Joe Wright, former city council candidate Jim Barnard and community leader Lester Roberts. Unable to attend the hour long session were committee chairman George Hall, Avon Park City Attorney Gerald Buhr and Councilman Parke Sutherland, who serves as the councils liaison to the group. The three spent an hour going over the nine-page document, reviewing the lang uage and fine tuning the proposal before sending it to the city council. Only onec hange of any significance was suggested, that came in the area of the removal of the city manager. Committee members agreed that it should take an affirmative vote of no fewer than three members to oust a city manger. Three, being a majority of the five-member council. That adds clarity Wright said. It would be wrong to have three members meet and then two vote somebody out. Another question came during a discussion on a reinserted section on investigations. I have a problem with somebody who doesnt want to participate in an investigation being charged with a misdemeanor, Roberts said. That sentiment was echoed from the audience, with references made to the recent unpleasantness between City Manager Julian Deleon and Councilman Garrett Anderson. Reportedly under advisement from his attorney, the councilman has not spoken much about his allegations against Deleon. It was also noted t he Fifth Amendment to the Constitution provides prot ection for those who do not wish to participate in questioning. Taking the advice of Hall, committee members initialed each page and signed and dated the last page to make certain their recommendations would be delivered to the council intact. The council is expected to take up the issue at their special meeting Thursday, with a public hearing and final reading tentatively set for July 22. Once the final version is approved by council, it will be set as a ballot initiative for voters.

That duty would fall to the city counc il. This means it requires a minimum of a 3 to 5 vote to f ormally authorize any council investigation. This language regarding investigations is also not to Avon Park. The current charter has this exa c t provision, which was recentl y invoked by the sitting council.

Continued from A1 Fundraisers set for Jade Jackson SANFORD (APAn expert on gunshot wounds hired by the defense testifiedT uesday that George Zimmermans account of how he fatally shot Trayvon Martin is consistent with the forensic evidence. Dr. Vincent Di Maio said that the trajectory of the bullet and gun powder on Martinsb ody support Zimmermans version that Martin was on top of him when Zimmerman fired his gun into Martins chest. The guns muzzle was against Martins clothing and it was anywhere from two to four inches fromM artins skin, he said. This is consistent with Mr. Zimmermans account that Mr. Martin was over him, leaning forward at the time he was shot, said Di Maio, the former chief medical examiner in San Antonio. T he pathologist also said it was likely Martin was conscious for 10 to 15 seconds a fter the shooting as a reserve supply of oxygen ran out of his body, and during that time it was possible for him to have moved hisa rms. Zimmermans account that he had placed Martins arms out to his sides after t he shooting contradicts a photo taken after the shooting that shows Martins arms under his body. Defense attorneys contend Martin moved his arms. Di Maio also explained that if clothes t aken into evidence are wet and packaged in plastic bags, and not paper bags, it can ruin the samples since bacteria multiplies and you get mold and it stinks to high heaven. Defense attorneys believe DNAevidencef ound on Martins hooded sweatshirt and undershirt was degraded since the clothing w asnt packaged properly. Earlier in the morning, Judge Debra Nelson considered prosecutorsrequest tob ar the defense from showing animation depicting the fight between Martin and Z immerman. Nelson held an evidence hearing with jurors out of the courtroom, but ultimately postponed her decision and more arguments on the matter until later in the afternoon. P rosecutors object to the animation, saying it isnt an accurate depiction. Expert says evidence jibes with Zimmermans version of events MCT George Zimmerman watches the jury enter the courtroom on Tuesday.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgS EBRING Their tournament run came to a close Monday night as a late rally fell short for the Sebring TBall All-Stars. W ith the weather clear over the weekend, for a change, the Dixie State T-B all Tournament was running smoothly at the Max Long Recreational Complex, with teams from throughout t he state descending upon Sebring to vie for the title. The junior Blue Streaks got their run started by piling up the runs Saturday afternoon in a 21-7 hammering of Hardee, which moved them along in the winners bracket to face Wildwood late Sunday afternoon. But while their bats were still making some noise with solid contact and hard shots, too often they were finding the gloves of Wildwood fielders in the 17-8 loss. In the top of the first, Wildwood managed two runs to take an early lead. Sebrings Steven Santos t hen managed an inside-thepark home run to bring himself and JTTaylor across the plate to even the score. Ascoreless second inning proceeded before Wildwood woke up their bats and racked up eight runs to put the board at 10-2. Once awoken, the bats kept rolling as Wildwood continued to tack more runs on the board as Sebring struggled to rally back. This setback knocked the Streaks into the consolation side of the bracket and had them scurrying back to playa nightcap against Brooksville in an elimination game. With their backs against the wall, the defense held solid in only allowing one first inning run, with the bats then coming back to life and finding open spaces to score six in Sebrings half of the frame. Chase Vaughn started it with a lead-off double, with Steven Santos soon knocking home two with a base hit. After Carsen Crisafulli raced in to score when a throw got away, Nelson Morales, Robert Duncan and Hunter Stone each had RBI hits to post the early 6-1 lead. Brooksville got two runs back in the second, but the Streaks were just getting started. In the bottom of the second, an eight spot went up on the board to push the lead to 14-3.

By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comWhen deciding between a few options, it often pays to take a little extra time to realize the best choice. W hich is why Lake Placid graduate Nathan S tanley took his time before making his decis ion to attend and play baseball at Clearwater C hristian College in the coming school year. In looking to continue his academics as well as his playing days, Stanley was deciding between four schools. I was looking at Palm Beach Atlantic, Northwoods University, Florida Memorial and Clearwater, he said. They all looked really good, I could have seen myself at any of them, but what it came down to was the financial package to help me afford it best. Which, along with taking his time, was another very prudent thing to consider. Along with that winning mindset, the Cougar baseball team is also getting quite the versatile performer in Stanley, who saw time all over the field for the Green Dragons, and will likely continue in Clearwater. They have asked me to play outfield and infield, as well as be in the pitching rotation, he said. I guess they like my knuckleball. That sort of defensive versatility is one thing, but Stanleys offensive attributes add to it all the more. This past season, he hit .393 with a .443 on base percentage. Stanley belted 22 hits, scored 17 runs, drove in 11 and had five doubles to go with his speed on the bases netting him 10 steals in 11 attempts. I know my speed wil l h elp me as well as the fact that Im a contact hi tter, he said. But I know I need to work on my quickness in the infield and Im also going to ge t stronger to add some m ore gap power as a hitt er In the classroom, Stanley has his focus on majoring in Sports Management. It is called a Bachelors degree in Social Sciences with a focus in Sports Management and Finance, he said. And on the field, Stanley will be joining a young team under thirdy ear head coach Joshua R ebandt, that made it to the National Christian College Association Division II National Tournament in Mason, Ohio this past season an d picked up two wins before being ousted. Last seasons roster included seven juniors, two sophomores and eig ht freshman, meaning playing time will have to be earned. But just as he was wil ling to take this extra time to make his choice, Stanley is more than willing to put in the extra work to make the most o f his choice.

Shannon Cummings and Hurricanes, LPA make waves at Gulf Coast See SWIM, Page B4 Little Streaks stopped at State See DIXIE, Page B4 By TOM WITHERS Associated PressCLEVELAND Andrew Bynum has a new team waiting for him. The enigmatic free-agent center, who didnt play a single second for Philadelphia last season because of knee injuries, is mulling a two-year offer from the Cleveland Cavaliers, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Cleveland made the offer, which includes a team option in the second year, during his visit to the Cavsfacility. Bynum did not work out but the team examined him thoroughly. The person with knowledge of the negotiations spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the talks. Yahoo! Sports first reported the offer and said it was worth $24 million. The Cavs have already landed forward Earl Clark and guard Jarrett Jack in free agency and are looking to move up quickly. They would immediately vault into contention in the Eastern Conference with a healthy Bynum paired with All-Star guard Kyrie Irving. The 25-year-old Bynum, however, had arthroscopic surgery on both knees in March, but the Cavs apparently are confident he will return to the form that made him one of the NBAs best centers. Theyre also counting on him thriving under Cleveland coach Mike Brown. The two spent one season together with the Los Angeles Lakers and Bynum had his best year, averaging 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds. Over the past four seasons, Bynum has averaged 14.7 points and 9.5 rebounds. The Sixers acquired Bynum last season from the Lakers as part of a four-team trade. Bynum, who made $16.9 million despite not playing last season, is expected to meet with the Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks before making a decision. The Mavs are desperate to add a quality center after recently missing out on the bidding for free agent Dwight Howard. Cavs offer Andrew Bynum 2-year deal MCTphoto Despite spending last season in street clothes, Andrew Bynum is drawing a lot of interest.

Continued from B1 Acombination of sharp hitting and some sloppyd efense paved the way, as Vaughn, Taylor and Kael M artz batted a run home each, with Santos adding a two-run single and Crisafulli bringing home three. A gain, Brooksville battled back with four runs in the third, but Sebring had anothe r big answer in store for them. With one run already in, Camden Culverhouse, Vaughn and Taylor all added R BIs and with two runners on base, Martz stepped to the plate. Sizing up the defenders, Martz set his sights on right field, adjusted his positioning in the batters box and unloaded on the ball, sending it to deep right field, over the heads of the outfielders. The two runners ahead of him came in, and Martz cont inued his sprint around the b ases and was soon crossing the plate himself with an inside-the-park home run to make it a 21-7 game. With their lead stretched to the equivalent of two touchdowns, the defense locked in and held Brooksville scoreless over their final two at bats, while the offense got another deep shot in fourth. Again, with two runners on, Camron Diaz followed the example of Martz an inning earlier and powered one well over the outfielders heads for an inside-theparker that was so well struck that he was able to cross home plate standing up. T he big win set up a Monday showdown withS pring Hill, but the offense wouldnt catch fire until it was too late as their tournament run came to an end with a 19-13 loss. Asix-run Spring Hill first was followed by five more in the second and pushed them out to an 11-2 lead. Over their next four at bats, Sebring would outscore Spring Hill 11-8, but the early hole was just too big to dig out of. And so their run ended a bit earlier than the host team might have hoped, but they came very far nonetheless. Seeing this team now, compared to when we first started practicing, there has been so much improvement, head coach Toby Taylor saida fterward. At the start, some kids were afraid of b alls thrown to them, and now theyre catching fly balls and line drives. After the win last night, we were coming in with a lot of confidence, but theyl earned if you dont come to play like youre capable of, this can happen, he continued. But it was a lot of fun and having it here was great, with the parents and grandparents being able to watch and cheer them on. News-Sun correspondent Lauren Welborn contributed to this article.

I think roasting vegetables like zucchini and red onions on a char grill and great flavors and make a nice complimentt o whatever you are pairing it with. S omething else I like doing on the grill is wrapping a piece of fish in foilw ith fresh herbs and garlic then toss the fish on t he grill. The foil also makes it easier to keep your fish from breakinga part during cooking. You can also do this on the coals of a cam fire and e njoy a dish Ive heard called campfire fish. A couple tips for cooking with your grill is to maintain even heat and keep clean. So often I hear people say theya llow the grill to get really hot then clean it with their grill brushes. Not this chef. I clean my grill after every use to help prevent the spread of bacteria. A lso, make sure that the drip pan at the bottom o f the grill is emptied before every use because the last thing you want is to start a fire. We all know how things like thatc an get out of hand. This week I have a recipe for a fresh herb mix that you could use on just about any protein thatw ill give great flavor and presentation. Cheers, Chef.Fresh herb mix1 tbs. Parsley, Italian, Fresh, Chopped 1 tbs. Basil, Fresh, Chiffonade Cut 1 tbs. Oregano, Fresh, Chopped 1 tbs. Cilantro, Fresh, Chopped 2-1/4 tsp.

I love him with everything in me, but he is mentally and physically abusive. He is also addicted to coughm edicine. I knew I should have stopped talking to him before we started dating, but he was such a mess I thought I could help him a nd I did. Hes no longer an alcoholic. He went to jail f or seven months because of our age difference, but I refused to testify, so he goto ut. While he was in there I thought he had changed and w ouldnt hit me anymore, but he still does. Anyone in their right mind would get up and leave, but the one time Id id, he pretended he didnt care and I attempted suic ide. I dont know what to do. I love him, but I know I shouldnt. Abused Teen in California D earTeen: Im glad you wrote. Richard may no longer be drinking liquor,b ut cough medicines contain alcohol, which means hes still an alcoholic. His v iolence toward women will probably never stop u nless he is incarcerated for it, and even then there is no guarantee. Regardless of how much love you give him, youc ant fix whats wrong with him or make him love you back because he isnt capable of it. Because you are so emotionally fragile, you should seek refuge with relativesw ho can help you heal physically and emotionally f rom this experience. If thats not possible, then contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Its website is www.thehot-l ine.org, and the toll-free phone number is 800-7997233. Ask for a referral to a womens shelter where you can receive counseling ands upport. Help is available for you if you are open to it. Staying where you are is not an option because if you do, this man could kill you. DearAbby: While riding with my new boss to a sales appointment, he needed some information from his company-issued iPad. He asked me to turn it on and gave me the passcode.

And when you interview, as tempting as it may be, r efrain from saying anything negative about your b oss because to do otherwise will reflect poorly on you. DearAbby: My b oyfriend wants to open the door for me when I am the one driving. Im thrilled that he wants to be a gentleman, and I love when he opens the door for me when I am in the passenger seat o r in front of any other door, as he always does. I a m just not comfortable with it when Im the one whos driving. It seems awkward to me. Your thoughts?

Bamboo can growmore than a meter per day and the plant matures within five years, makingit one of the worlds most sustainable resources. The environmentalist in me is absolutely thrilled with these bamboodishes because they are so much better for our planet, but my innerdiva loves that they are just so gorgeous. You can find all sorts ofdishes made out of bamboo from serving ware and utensils to yourstandard plates, bowls and cups. There are several benefits to using bamboo dishes: Theyre much stronger than paper Bamboo dishes are 100 percent biodegradable No harsh chemicals or dyes are used to produce them Bamboo dishes are quite elegant to serve food on These dishes are naturally antimicrobial They are light weight and stain resistant You can dispose of these dishes after one use (I personally wouldnt!)or you can wash them and dry them by hand, pack them away and use themagain and again. These bamboo dishes are also great for kids. They would make a greatreplacement for those plastic plates depicting recognizable cartooncharacters. Plastic isnt the safest thing to eat off of in the firstplace, but as those plates become scratched and scuffed as tends tohappen with childrens dishes, where is that paint going? What happensto those chemicals and toxins that were used to make those plates? Itleeches out into the food thats on that plate. Bamboo dishes aregreat for the whole family, including the little ones.
