The national average price of g asoline will surpassed $3 per g allon Tuesday for the 1,000th c onsecutive day for the first time o n record, according a report f rom AAA. The current streak b egan on Dec. 23, 2010, and A AAforecasts the national avera ge will remain above $3 per gallon for at least another 1,000 days barring a major economic recession. Florida gas prices reached $3 a gallon on December 22, 2010, just one day sooner than the national average, said Mark Jenkins, AAAspokesman, The Auto Club Group. While Florida motorists may get lucky and occasionally pay less than $3 per gallon in the future, $2 gas prices are mostly a thing of the past. Mondays national average was $3.52 per gallon. Gas prices on average have remained above $3.50 per gallon for the majority of days during the current streak, and AAAprojects the national average will remain higher than $3.50 per gallon in the coming days.

However, if the business owner sells or moves, then those old signs will have to comply with the code. Any new signs downtown will have to be monument signs mounted close to the ground on a solid base or on posts no more than 3 feet tall with an overall sign height of no more than 5 feet. Changes to the ordinance will take effect Thursday. City Manager Julian Deleon said the change came after business owners weighed in on proposed changes to the ordinance. As a result, city staff asked Jennifer Codo-Salisbury, planning director with the Central Florida Regional Planning Council, to expand the use of polemounted signs along U.S. 27 and othe r high-traffic commercial areas. Business owners told Deleon, Codo Salisbury and city staff that motorists have trouble seeing monument signs a t the highways in-city speed limit of 45 mph, so a move to have monument signs there was abandoned. Codo-Salisbury said she has amend ed the code to allow the total surface Pole signs OK in downtown AP, for now See POLE, A6

Marshall is a self-taught a rtist who has been working w ith pencil and studying on h er own for some time. She h as been interested in art her e ntire life, but did not focus e ntirely on drawing until M arch 2012. She also paints a nd has recently begun to s culpt. The artwork that I have o n exhibit here arose from a p assion to draw, Marshall s aid. I find that, as an artist, t here is an internal drive, a p assion to draw, a passion to c reate, and a passion to a lways try something new. I l ove old photos, local sites, p eople, and just about anyt hing that I find something s pecial in, something I can b ring out in a drawing and s how to a viewer to make t hem see what I see. Alot of t hings inspire me. I love to d raw people, places, and t hings that I find beauty in. I l ike to capture a moment and p ut it on paper. That moment c an be anything. When asked what she l iked to focus on during p ainting, Marshall replied, I l ove sunsets and sunrises. S ome of the most beautiful c olors that nature can prod uce come from a setting s un. I like to paint these s cenes with food coloring and wax. The food coloring comes out so vibrant, and I love the way it looks. Marshalls artwork is also on display and can be purchased at the following galleries: Caladium Arts and Crafts Coop in Lake Placid, The Galleria in Sebring, The Yellow House Gallery in Sebring,and Fantastic Finds Consignment and Art Gallery in Vero Beach.

As part of his prese ntation, Cox will show a s top-action short film entit led The Ever Increasing B urden on American Public S chools. The program deals with t he mandates being levied on l ocal school systems by both f ederal and state governm ents. Author Jamie Vollmer c ontends that since the onset o f the 20th century, A mericas leaders have v iewed public schools as the l ogical place to select and s ort young people into two g roups thinkers and doers according to the needs of t he industrial age. It was at this time the shift o f non-academic duties to t he schools began and the t rend has accelerated ever s ince. We are delighted to have M r. Cox with us to make this presentation, said Nell Roberts of the Voters League. This, along with all the discussion we have heard about Common Core, make this a particularly important time for the superintendent to visit with us. The VotersLeague is one of the oldest groups of its kind in Highlands County. Speakers generally start with a short presentation, followed by a question-andanswer session with the audience to allow for additional information and clarification of issues. Vollmer has spent the last 25 years working with school districts, education associations, foundations and chambers of commerce across the nation to halt what he has termed the erosion of public trust and build support for Americas public schools. Coxs Thursday appearance comes on the heels of a Highlands Tea Party meeting where another educational issue, the Common Core curriculum will be discussed. Randy Osborne of the Florida Eagle Forum will be at that session to talk about the educational process that is being proposed for the entire state of Florida. Critics have objected to the manner in which Common Core standards were created, adopted and funded. They further contend that the standards both are unconstitutional and illegal. Moreover, they charge the standards themselves are complicated and some worry that Common Core may be inferior to some current state standards and are designed to indoctrinate rather than teach students. Also at issue is the cost of implementing Common Core, which Osborne contends will strain states and communities. That session will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday evening at the Homers Restaurant at the Sebring Square shopping complex. Cox to talk to Voters League on Thursday Cox r

It is the nature of youth to b elieve bad things only happ en to others. That is until s omeone you know is affecte d. If you have to yet experie nce this point in life, ask a f riend or a parent. That first d eath of a young friend, a c lassmate, or confidante can b e like running into a brick w all face first. Additionally, we, as a culture, are made immune to what should be the obvious horrors of hard drugs. As the Age of Aquarius, and with it the Woodstock Generation, reached a zenith we were being told by the likes of Timothy Leary that drugs were good ... mind expanding. Today our youths are again wrongly being taught they are immune in other ways. Television and films have made death a daily part of our entertainment regimen. Gamers, testing the limits of Xbox or Play Station, die and return to life moments later. Such is not the case in the real world. That being the said, how do we get the message across to a new generation of youngsters who fear no death and falsely believe in their immortality? Hopefully the deaths of close friends, classmates and those who we may have passed on campus but not known by name will make a dent. But over time, we have found that much comes down to how parents, families and other support systems which should prepare our next generation of adults for the real and often cruel world. Just as it has been proven time and time again that parental involvement improves a youngsters chance of benefiting from a good education, our lifes experiences tell us the same often applies when it comes to preventing the misuse of drugs. While there are no guarantees, keeping channels of communication open and looking for signs of distress are key to shepherding our children into adulthood... As any parent will eventually attest, there is no foolproof system that will ensure success. Increasing the odds may be the best we can do. None of what we write here is to lay blame for failure or to rest child-rearing success on any one, lone set of shoulders. It is, however, a request no, a plea for parents, family and caregivers to take note of recent tragedies and to reconnect with those younger family members who will be tomorrows adults so they stand a better chance of making the right choices.

Its possible that t he weapons of choice to combat illegal i mmigration will turn out to be drones a nd robots. Were not talking about patrolling t he borders with Mexico although, i n fact, drones are being tested there. T he real breakthrough is in the fields, h ere in the Salinas Valley and elsew here across the Salad Bowl of the W est, where unmanned drones and r obots are being deployed. The mission i snt to find undocumented farm worke rs; its to replace them. Adecade from now the immigration p roblem that has proved so vexing for l awmakers and pundits will essentially s olve itself through technology. I ronically, farmers and scientists arent b eing inspired by political or social c onsiderations; farming is changing out o f necessity. Currently there are as many as 2 mill ion undocumented farmhands picking c rops and planting fields in the U.S. B ut thats not enough to fill the need, a nd the pool of workers here illegally i s plunging. According to a report by t he Pew Hispanic Center, the number of p eople leaving Mexico to work in the U .S. has dropped by roughly 65 percent d uring the last decade. Big agriculture has sought to counter t his by lobbying in Washington for an e asier path by which farm workers could gain citizenship. But theyve also hedged the bet by investing in research that could turn the field jobs over to machines. Afirm in Mountain View, Calif., has developed a Lettuce Bot that thins plants in the field 20 to 40 times faster than a human can do it and the unit works day and night. Its inventor told the San Francisco Chronicle that the robot can thin a 15-acre field, normally a days work for 25 people, in less than two hours. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are being tested in labs and fields across California, in anticipation of the 2015 deadline Congress has set for opening the skies to such vehicles for commercial use. But UAVs are already in wide use by farmers in Japan and Australia for spraying as well as surveillance to determine the spread of weeds and specific needs for water. Amanned spraying craft drops its chemicals from 10 or 15 feet above the ground, while a drone does the same work just inches away from the plants. Drones are also being tested for herding cattle and other livestock. ASan Diego research firm has invented a robot that prunes grapes. It also has a bot with eight arms and a built-in camera system that sweeps through groves picking oranges. Modern Farmer magazine looked at all this and came up with the headline, Drone, drone on the range. Its all very exciting and may have the unintended consequence of moderating, if not eliminating, the nations sharp divide over handling undocumented immigrants. In truth, farmers here as well as in Arizona and Florida have known for decades that undocumented workers are essential to their business, as well as to our food supply. For the most part, American citizens do not want the jobs. Until now, there was no way around it. Farmhands arrived from south of the border, ag bosses winked, and Americans dined on fruits and vegetables at reasonable prices. Technology is going to change that. Politicians may not deserve it, but robots and drones are going to allow them to solve the farming problem without getting their hands dirty. Peter Funts new book, Cautiously Optimistic, is available at Amazon.com and CandidCamera.com/. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Hi-tech harvesting may make immigration issue solve itself His neck and underarms were swollen. His skin itched, particularly on his arms. Sleeping at night was impossible. The symptoms started five years ago. He was 50 then. Hed been fit and healthy all his life. The diagnosis was not pleasant. He had contracted chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), a cancer, says mayoclinic.com of the blood and bone marrow bone marrow being the spongy tissue inside bones where blood cells are made. CLLaffects a group of white blood cells called lymphocytes, which help the body fight infection. It produces abnormal, ineffective lymphocytes. The abnormal cells may eventually crowd out the healthy cells, killing the patient. The silver lining: CLL typically progresses more slowly than other types of leukemia. Initially, doctors monitored the diseases progress. He would not receive his first chemotherapy treatment for six months. The treatment eased his symptoms quickly. He was symptom-free for almost one year. But the abnormal cells continued to multiply. His second chemo treatment staved them off for five more months. One challenge with chemo is that the body quickly becomes resistant to it. Doctors have to apply different chemo blends to overcome resistance. For the next few years, the different blends worked well. Until November 2012. His leukemia transformed from a chronic disease to a more aggressive form, acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). AML multiples abnormal cells at an aggressive rate, posing a real concern for the patient. But he still had plenty of hope. All he needed was the right chemo treatment to beat back and stabilize the illness. Then he could receive a bone marrow transplant from a donor. That procedure would help re-establish healthy stem cells by replacing unhealthy bone marrow with leukemia-free stem cells that will regenerate healthy bone marrow, says mayoclinic.com He had a donor lined up and took a heavy dosage of chemo, but he did not stabilize. He lined up another donor and was almost ready for the transplant, but his body failed to stabilize again. Now he is figh ting for his life. His doctors are pulling out all the stops, applying the most aggressive blends of chemo they have. But the AMLhas resisted and gotten stronger. The doctors say there is only a 20-percent chance the new treatment will work. Whats worse is that chemo wreaks havoc on th e body. Each aggressive treatment requires a lengthy hospital stay. That is where he is as you read this. His name is Don Krieger, a friend of mine and my familys for more than 40 years. Hes one of the funniest, most cheerful people you could ever meet. And all who know him marvel at the grace and humor with which he is fighting this disease. I share his story for the simple reason that he, and so many like him, could use our prayers. Prayer works. I write about him because we can all do something to help him. W e can consider becoming bone marrow donors to help heal others like Don (go to marrow.org). At the very least, we can donate blood on a regular basis. Patients like Don need whole blood almost daily. But mainly I write about Don because he is an amazing father, husband, son, brother and friend. Those of us lucky to know him cant image a world without him in it. Don knows better than most that too many of us take our blessings for granted. He knows that this old maxim is true: If you have your health, you really do have everything. We pray that he beats th e odds and makes it back to good health. Tom Purcell is a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review humor columnist and is nationally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons Inc.

Goldsmith was out on $ 50,000 bond by Friday, but a s of Tuesday, Hanna was s till in Highlands County Jail i n lieu of $20,000 bond. According to Sebring p olice arrest reports, G oldsmith and Hanna drove i nto the driveway of acquaint ance Shaanan Simon S piegel, 24, just before 7 p .m. Thursday at 1881 L akeview Drive in Sebring. Spiegel was standing in t he driveway along with J acquill Terrell Williams, 24, o f Lake Placid, reports said. Reports also said G oldsmiths black Chevrolet T railBlazer pulled up even w ith Shaanan on the drivers s ide and both Goldsmith and H anna, his passenger, threate ned to kill him. Both Spiegel and Williams r eported seeing a black G lock handgun possibly 40 or .45-caliber on G oldsmiths lap and told p olice Goldsmith started to r each for it. Williams r ecalled seeing the gun part ially covered by a maroon r ag and told police G oldsmith was already holdi ng the gun. He told police b oth Goldsmith and Hanna t hreatened to kill them both. Williams also reported Goldsmith said, Ill kill everyone in the house, according to reports. That was when Spiegel reached for his .380-caliber pistol, which he had in his pocket. He cocked it back so a round could fall out and show the gun was loaded, Spiegel told police. Spiegel told officers that he told Goldsmith to take his hands away from his gun and leave his driveway, which Goldsmith did. Although Williams and Spiegel both asked them to leave, Williams said Goldsmith and Hanna didnt leave until Spiegel pulled out his gun. According to arrest reports, Spiegel and Williams both told police they believed they were in danger and would have been shot if Spiegel hadnt defended himself. Highlands County Sheriffs deputies found Goldsmiths car at 4021 Leaf Road, based on information from Spiegel. Goldsmith told police he had pulled into the driveway to talk with Williams, his cousin, reports said. Both he and Hanna told police Williams was the only one there, reports said. Neither could answer why Spiegel would say he was there and that they threatened him with a gun. Goldsmith also told police that Williams was playing around with a .38-caliber handgun and started to point it towards him and his passenger, at which time he left, reports said. Officers then arrested Goldsmith and Hanna. Their arraignments are scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Oct. 21.

Phoenix is 11 and the p urebred of the bunch. His pup, Bisbie, or Bizzie, is 6 and she is mom to Tucson, Soxie and Scooter, all 3. They are used to being together and have always lived on a 50-acre ranch. Flexon does not believe they will not do well in a suburban environment. Phoenix holds a special place in Flexons heart. She was there and helped deliver him. Flexon and her fiance split some time after Phoenix was born and reunited last year. While she loves the dogs as though they were all her own, her home is in a residential neighborhood in Sebring. Although Cookie, her dog, would be OK with it, she feels it would be unfair to her fiances dogs to relocate from 50 acres to a small yard. The dogs, she describes, are super sweet, really good watch dogs, but not cat friendly. They have all been spayed/neutered and are current on their shots. I may not have been able to find a doctor who would see him (her fiance), but I will find a home for these dogs, she said. If interested, call Flexon at 835-1034.

In the letter to House S peaker John Boehner and S enate Majority Leader H arry Reid, he also urged C ongress to use whatever m eans necessary to ensure t he proper safeguards are i n place. Floridians should not h ave to exchange their p rivacy for insurance, S cott said in the letter. He c alled Florida ground z ero for the Obama a dministrations efforts to e nroll people in the new h ealth care exchanges, a k ey component of the law.

Gas prices first surged above $3 per gallon for eight days immediately following Hurricane Katrina from Sept. 3-10, 2005. The longest previous streak above $3 per gallon was for 244 days from Feb. 17-Oct.17, 2008. The national average fell below $3 per gallon for 796 days from Oct. 18, 2008Dec. 22, 2010 due to a weaker economy, which demands less gasoline and oil. The national average tomorrow will have remained above $3.25 per gallon for 265 consecutive days. The national average price of gas so far this year is $3.57 per gallon. In Florida, it is $3.55, but this average should drop through December as demand declines during cooler months. Last year was the most expensive year on record with an annual average of $3.60 per gallon ($3.57 in Florida), followed by an annual average of $3.51 per gallon in 2011 ($3.50 in Florida). The average U.S. household in 2012 spent $2,912 on gasoline, or just under four percent of income before taxes, according to the Energy Information Administration. The most expensive daily national average during the current streak was $3.98 per gallon on May 5, 2011. In Florida the most expensive was $3.97 on April 7, 2012. The lowest daily national average was $3.01 per gallon on December 23, 2010. In Florida, it was $3.01 on December 22, 2010.

The code also allows more than one sign for any business that has 250 feet or more of frontage along a single roadway. She also said businesses on corner lots would be allowed to have a sign on each street, one per 250 feet of frontage. Any business with less than 75 feet of frontage, however, would only be allowed a sign mounted on the building, Codo-Salisbury said. Pole signs, where they are allowed, would need to be set 10 feet back from the road, set between 10-15 feet up and have no more than 64 square feet of display space, she said. If there are disputes about the city decisions on a sign design, an applicant can appeal to the Board of Adjustment, Codo-Salisbury said. The Avon Park City Council approved of the changes unanimously on Sept. 9. Despite there being a public hearing on the matter, there was no public comment. The only question came from Administrative Services Director Maria Sutherland, who asked if the changes would affect minimum maintenance standards, especially in the Southside area of the city.

Forty-two-year-old Marilyn Edge appeared by video Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court to be arraigned on two counts of murder following her arrest over the weekend. Judge Craig Robison asked Edge if she wanted her arraignment postponed to Oct. 25, and she twice said she would agree to that if the judge promised her the death penalty. The judge postponed the arraignment. Edge was involved in a custody dispute and had been ordered to return her son and daughter to their father in Georgia.

D irector Harvey Craven. The issue of inspections c ame up during an applicat ion by Positive Medical T ransport for a Certificate of P ublic Convenience and N ecessity. Although the priv ate service is subject to a s emi-annual inspection by s tate officials, under county o rdinance, EMS officials also i nspect the firms vehicles. Both inspections use the s ame criteria. What we do is take the s tate inspection form, go out t here and make sure they h ave the state equipment on t he ambulance thats basic ally it, Craven said. The EMS director said that w hile the state comes out and d oes a random inspection of s ome vehicles, the county is m ore frequent and thorough. What occurs is, that when t he state comes out, if say y ou have eight ambulances t hey may inspect two or if y ou had 30 ambulances they c ould inspect four or five. T hey dont inspect every a mbulance, he said. However, under county o rdinance, EMS officials are c harged with inspecting every a mbulance that has been a uthorized by a COPCN. T hose certificates are issued e very two years. Craven said e ither he or one of his superv isors does the actual inspect ion. Craven told commissioners t hat although the county subm its to the state inspection, t hey do not have a similar i nspection of their own units. We have not added any a mbulances to the fleet, so w e have not had to have i nspection of any new units, h e said. And, under ordinance, if t he county purchases a new a mbulance to replace an a ging unit the new vehicle d oes not require an inspect ion. When you add an ambul ance to your fleet, which m eans you are making your s ervice larger, the ordinance s ays that would require an i nspection, he said. Moreover, unlike private f irms, the countys COPCN d oes not come up for renewal e very two years. In fact, said C raven, it is never due up for r enewal. Were a division of count y government, he said. If we had a certificate, it would be like the county giving themselves permission to go into business. However, the county actually does have a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. That was approved in 1996 but contains no renewal procedure. The issue of standing by during non-elective heart procedures also came to light during a discussion for a COPCN. This time it was for the Tampa-based American Medical Response, which also runs units in Highlands County They have the contract to standby at Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center, Craven said. In the past, Highlands Countys EMS units would standby at no charge if an AMR unit could not be at the scene. However, county commissioners have asked that practice be changed. They now will be billed at a price of $100 per hour for as many hours as the countys units are tied up. We will charge them a minimum of $200, with a $100 per hour fee after that, he said. Positive Medical Transport has an agreement with Highlands Regional Medical Center to stand by at no additional charge as part of their financial agreement. We have told them we will have to charge if we are called to HRMC, Craven said.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It was a transf ormative summer for C orbin Hoffner in many w ays, and may well have o pened the door toward m any more. The 2011 Sebring gradua te, after a year of college b aseball at St. Pete, was d rafted by the Chicago Cubs a nd went through their i nstructional league and A rizona Fall League last y ear. This year, the right-hande d hurler was sent to play f or the Boise Hawks, the C ubs Class AShort-Season N orthwest League franchise a nd joined the rest of the y oung hopefuls. After the more hands on, i ntense setting of his initial s eason, Hoffner soon reali zed a different sort of c oaching. Its a lot more relaxed, h e said. At this point, this i s your job and it's up to you t o get your work in and be r eady to go. If there is an issue with y our mechanics or somet hing like that, theyll work w ith you. But other than t hat, its on you to do what y ou need to do. Which Hoffner apparently d id very well. At a towering 6 he e nded the fall league weighi ng 250 pounds, but through his offseason workouts, shaped himself to a more toned 232 by spring training in Arizona. And the progress continued on the field as Hoffner put up stellar numbers throughout the summer. Coming out of the bullpen as, technically, a middle reliever, he was averaging three innings per outing and his numbers soon began adding up. He wound up the season with the third most innings of any pitcher on the staff, 10 more innings than any other Hawk reliever. In his 46.2 innings, he surrendered just 29 hits, nine earned runs, 13 walks and struck out 42. His ERAwas a miniscule 1.74, batting average against just .180 and his WHIP (walks and hits per inning pitched) was less than one at .90. He picked up two wins, no losses, one save and had four holds. There was one bad outing, which Hoffner knew would come at some point, but it wasnt even as bad as the numbers made it look. I came in and got the final out of one inning, then the next inning they had a runner on with two outs, he said. Then the ump called me for a balk, I walked a batter and then a chopper bounced off first base for a hit and the next guy got a broken bat base hit. The next inning I gave up a home run, the only one all season, he continued. My coach said I needed to get that pitch more in on him, and I told him I did, but he just hit a good pitch. After watching the tape, he said I was right and bought me dinner. And while he enjoyed a great first, full season, there were rough aspects, such as the travel for lower level S PORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, September 18, 2013 NASCAR This WeekP AGE B3 Courtesy photo Corbin Hoffners first baseball card and, given the season he had this year, likely the first of many.

By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentSEBRING The Manta Rays found themselves in dangerous waters Monday night when they traveled into Sebring for their first matchup against the Blue Streaks in 10 years. Not knowing what to expect from their longdistant but new district foes, the Streaks were surely ready for anything and came away with a four-set win over Lemon Bay. Sebring started the match off right with an extreme lead over the Manta Rays at 8-2. Aroll shot by Hannah Tucker boosted the lead 12-3 with Lindsey Whittington following with a tip to add another point to the board. Lemon Bay made a steady run, creeping up until two Hannah Gotch kills ended the run and made the score 17-12. Caylin Webb contributed with a kill puttin g the lead up by five making it 19-14. Atimeout was called by the Lemon Bay head coach, but not before a Whittington kill made it 21-14. Sebring allowed four unanswered points soon after, causing their head coach, Venessa Sinness, to call a timeout. The Streaks scored fir st after this halt in the actio n with a Cadie OHern kill.

We played 76 games in 79 days and wed go from one series to the next. Play the last game of one series, take the bus for 6 or 7 hours, up to 12 to 13 hours for the trips to Canada, get in at 7 a.m., sleep until 1 and go to the park. But even that was an aspect that he took for what it was, a great experience. Im playing baseball and even during those long trips, Im spending it with a great bunch of guys that are in this with me. Some of those guys are notable considering their bloodlines, such as teammates from the summer before, Trevor Gretzky, son of hockey legend Wayne, and Shawon Dunston Jr., whose father played 18 seasons in the Major Leagues, 12 with the Cubs. I never met Showans dad, hes coaching with the Giants, Hoffner said. But Wayne Gretzky came to a couple games in Canada, and it was a big deal when he showed up. Also, it was cool that our hitting coach is Bill Buckner, whos a really great guy and a lot of fun. The names were another aspect of the experience, as were the locations. Growing up in Florida, I never would have thought Id see places like this, he said. Now Im traveling to these parts of the Northwest, into Canada, its really pretty cool to see these different areas. But of course, amid these extra benefits and experiences, he will likely be mo ving on from many of his teammates and away to different locales as his baseba ll career progresses. On various Cubs organiz ation blogs Hoffner was mentioned as the sleeper of the farm system, and named c oshort season pitcher of the year. And though he hasnt bee n told anything yet, one blog suggested he could be head ed to the higher Alevel Kane County Cougars in th e Chicago suburb of Geneva, IL. I dont know yet, but I guess theres an organizatio n meeting in Orlando this winter where theyll be discussing that stuff, Hoffner said. Im happy with the season I had, and have conf idence in my ability. My career right now is playing baseball and I will continue working to keep it going. Im happy to go wherever they send me. Fresh off the intense season, Hoffner is resting for a bit, but will resume his workout program in the coming weeks, with the ben efit of his own father being on hand. It is a nice thing that he was a pitcher in the minors , he said of his father Bobs time in the Minnesota Twins organization. Its cool that we can talk about it, compa ring stories of our experiences and him helping me out. Then it will be back to th e Cubs spring training camp in Arizona where Hoffner wil l find out the next step of his journey. Continued from B1 Hoffner sleeper of the farm system Courtesy pho to Corbin Hoffner made the most of his first minor league regular season, which likely will have him donning a new uniform next season. y et another kill to the books m aking the score 23-19 b efore the set ended with a t ricky tip by Whittington m aking the final 25-19. The Manta Rays started o ut with the lead in the seco nd set, jumping out 10-2 o ver the Lady Streaks and f orcing Sinness to call a t imeout to settle her troops. The break seemed to be e xtremely effective as over t he next few minutes it was a ll Sebring. To start it off, Hinkle had a kill, making the score 104 Whittington had three c onsecutive service aces t hat brought the Streaks c loser at 11-8. Another Hinkle kill put t he Blue Streaks closer only d own by one 13-12. Lemon Bay was able to s core two points in an a ttempt to inch away, but w ere quickly stopped by b oth Webb and Hinkle who t ied the score at 15. ATucker kill kept the S treaks from going down by t oo much and kept the score a t a one point difference of 1 7-16. Sinness called a timeout when Lemon Bay scored three unanswered points, but a Gotch kill tied the score up at 20 and that was when Sebring took over the set. AHinkle aced closed the set 25-22 and put the Streaks up 2-0. The third set was a mix of inconsistency with the Streaks. Lemon Bay took control of the set, trying to keep their hopes alive of making it to a fifth set tie breaker. The home team was unable to get a mesh going and trailed throughout the entire set using both timeouts in an attempt to get the crucial momentum shift needed to take control. They were able to get as close as a two-point difference, but were unable to catch the Manta Rays and went down in the set 25-20. With motivation from their play in the third set, the Blue Streaks fired off a 7-3 lead and did not look back. An OHern kill kept Sebrings lead alive 13-10. AGotch kill extended the lead by four to 16-12. The Lady Streaks were able to maintain a comfortable lead throughout the rest of the fourth set and finished the match 25-18. I am very impressed with how the girls didnt quit, said Sinness. It didnt matter what the scoreboard read, we played hard for every point. Our serve receive had some holes, and they had some runs on us, she continued. But even after those runs its like they didnt even exist because we kept playing hard which was great to see. Now 2-1 in District 115Aplay, Sebring goes out of district Thursday with a visit from Okeechobee. Continued from B1 Sebring does away with Manta Rays p layed five matches and w ent 3-2 to take second in t he Silver bracket and sixth o verall among the 16 comp eting teams. A2-1 win over Titusville g ot their weekend started, h ighlighted by 10 kills from B ella Caraballo and 19 digs f rom Mary Grace Bates. Next up was a tough loss t o a strong Father Lopez t eam, by a total of six p oints, 26-24 and 25-21. They took first in our p ool, head coach Charlotte B auder said. And we actua lly should have beaten them. In their next match, the Dragons dropped the opening set 25-16 to the St. Edwards School, but bounced back with a 25-21 win and took the tie-breaker by a 15-13 score. Andrea Barajas came up big with 10 digs and 20 assists, while Breauna Corley added 10 kills and Bates had 13 digs. Then, behind 10 kills from Caraballo and 20 more Barajas assists, Lake Placid downed Deltona in dominant fashion, 25-12 and 2513. But things ended on a more dour note with a three-set loss to Fernandina Beach. After taking the opening set 25-19, the Dragons dropped the next one 25-21 and couldnt quite get over the hump in the 15-12 tiebreaker loss. But on the whole, it was a worthwhile trip according to Bauder. It was a great experience and the girls played fantastic, she said. We were able to see a lot of teams that we could very well face in the playoffs. After returning from Orlando, the team was back on the road Monday with a trip to Clewiston, where they were on top of their game. They swept the Lady Tigers 25-15, 25-20 and 2518 behind 13 Corley kills, 27 Barajas assists and four service aces from Bates. And the schedule wasnt about to ease up as it was back to district play Tuesday with a big home match against Avon Park before a non-district Thursday visit from DeSoto. Continued from B1 LP to have played nine matches in week t hem down and youd put F reeman in and hed just b reak a big one. Now you h ave two big backs and y ouve still got Freeman. K arlos may be faster than a ll of them. ... Its really a b ig up. I know it has to stress t he defense. Then they can p lay-action and weve still g ot great receivers. So we c an go deep anytime just off t he play-action. If the trio can continue to b e that productive, the will m ake life easier for W inston. The quarterback has q uickly become the focal p oint of opponents after c ompleting 40 of 45 passes f or 570 yards with six t ouchdowns and one interc eption. He has more touchdowns t han incomplete passes t hrough eight quarters. The 6-foot-1, 223-pound W illiams was the unexpecte d treat last weekend. The one-time safety m oved to running back for t he first time during his coll egiate career after the seas on-opening win against P ittsburgh. The junior previously resisted coach Jimbo Fishers suggestion to move to the offensive side of the ball. Wilder and Freeman were both preseason Doak Walker Award candidates. Their abilities were wellknown. No one predicted Williams would take a toss sweep in the third quarter and sprint around the right end for a 65-yard touchdown on his first career carry. I believe it causes a lot of issues for a defense, Williams said. Even Ryan Green is a very shifty guy. ... We call ourselves the four-headed monster. Theres a lot of talent in that backfield. Our quarterbacks are young, so we really do have to take care of them. We have to make sure were making the right calls and running the right lanes and making sure were taking care of the football. Freeman finished with 109 rushing yards and a touchdown. Williams added 110 yards and one score. Wilder had 45 yards and a touchdown. Fisher joked about his fortune-telling prowess after the game and expounded on Williams during his press conference Monday. Ive wanted to do it for a long time, Fisher said about the position switch. I think its his most natural position. It wasnt motivation. I just think its his best position, always have. I just think hes more natural at that position than at any other thing. Hes very dynamic with the ball in his hands. This has nothing to do with: We need a running back. I think he was doing well on defense. I just think its the most natural position for him. I really do. Ive always thought that. The offense gives defenses another look when the 62, 229-pound Wilder and Freeman, 5-9, 203 pounds, share the backfield. Wilder has nicknamed the formation Wild & Free when he and Freeman line up behind Winston. Wilder threw the key block during Freemans 60yard run on the first snap of the second half. The duo is on the verge of becoming FSUs first pair of career 1000-yard rushers on the same roster since 2005. You can do a lot of things. Run it both ways, they can catch it. Lot of experience. Lot of size, Fisher said. Wilder said the goal is for every back to average 6.5 yards per carry, which was easily accomplished after the trio broke off runs of 60 yards, 65 yards and 24 yards in Florida States first five offensive snaps of the second half. The Seminoles are 18th in the nation among in the nation among FBS schools, averaging 266.5 yards rushing per game. That is likely to rise against FCS program Bethune-Cookman (3-0) this weekend. We dont have certain backs for certain plays. We can do everything, Wilder said. That makes it harder for defenses. ... We have an open playbook for every situation. It keeps us with fresh legs. Around the third quarter, the defense is tired and sluggish.

NEWYORK (AP) Lots o f retailers come out with hot toy lists every holiday s eason, but this year WalM art decided to try somet hing different: let kids rate t heir favorite toys. In a first, about 1,000 boys a nd girls aged 18 months to 1 0 years spent time over a t hree-day weekend in August i n Dallas playing with 50p lus toys and choosing their f avorites. The result is a top 2 0 list of kid-approved toys t hat includes a new robotic p et Furby, a hugging Elmo a nd a Barbie dream house. Retailers place their bets e arly on which toys will be h its and then spend heavily to m arket them to spur sales d uring the holiday season. I ts a crucial time because h oliday sales can make up to 4 0 percent of a retailers a nnual revenue. During spring planning for t he holidays, one toy buyer c ame up with the idea to let k ids be part of the process, s aid Scott McCall, senior v ice president of toys and s easonal at Walmart U.S. W al-Mart Stores Inc. is the w orlds largest retailer and the biggest seller of toys. Making the list? Lots of new takes on classic toys, McCall said, like a new robotic pet Furby and a new Barbie Dreamhouse playset. TVshow-related toys were also popular, including a Sofia the First talking doll, and a Doc McStuffins Get Better Check Up Center, both Disney properties, and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Secret Sewer Lair Playset based on the Nickelodeon show. Cuddly interactive toys are also on the list, including an Elmo doll based on the Sesame Street character that gives hugs and FurReal Friends Cuddles My Giggly Monkey, a monkey that coos and cuddles. With Christmas still months away, it is too soon to tell which toys will actually become the must-have toys of the season. But Wal-Mart plans to promote the top 20 toys with shelf space proclaiming the toys Chosen by Kids and with prominent positions on its website.

LAKE PLACID Pancakes, flat cakes, round cakes, hot cakes, or griddle cakes are made by men in the park on the first Saturday of each month. Seventy-five were fed on Sept. 7. This breakfast is always enjoyed by everyone. Monday morning coffee was set up and hosted by Marysue and Derek Willeke. They served fancy doughnuts in honor of Marysues birthday. Peggy Sue Teague was the emcee. After Peggy Sue read the names for the birthdays of the week, Marilyn Cromer played the piano and we sang Happy Birthday to Marysue Willeke and John Reece. Then Peggy Sue read the names of the couples having anniversaries and we sang to Bob and Jean Noyes and Harvey and Verna Stutzman. It was Bob and Jean Noyes63rd anniversary. Carol Noel read the convalescence report: Emily Snider and Norm Hebel are recovering from procedures. We were sorry to hear that Luann Steffens brother, Donald, passed away and Kendall Kilbrides sister, Mary Louise, also passed away. Lets offer these people our condolences. Its so good to see couples coming back after having a good vacation. This week it was Robert and Jean Noyes, John and Carolyn Reece, and Jim and Rose Witten. I like to ask for a report as to what they did while they were gone and this I received from Joe and Joan Shannon: They visited the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minn., on a bus trip from the University of Minnesota in Duluth. Four wolves were interacting with two workers from the center. It was fun to watch. They are fed twice a week with mostly road kill that is kept in a freezer. That is how often they usually eat in the wild. The center is about 100 miles from Duluth so it made a tiring but very educational and interesting day. It still wasnt as tiring as half a day with our 2-yearold grandson, Isaac. Of my, to have that much energy! Thank for Joan for the report. Tuesday mornings coffee for the ladies was made by Marilyn Cromer. She also led the meeting. We discussed the activities coming up this month and the activities of the months to come. We also discussed the busy use of the library. Carol Noel, our Sunshine Person, told us that Jacqueline Keen is having surgery and that Myrna Kniseley and Millie Verbarg also need our prayers. Do you need brushing up on your painting skills, water color or acrylic?

We always appreciate any donations give to Nu Hope Senior Care in our area. The Monthly Noon Carryin took place on Sept. 10. Lynne McCarrick was the emcee and led the pledge to the U.S. flag. Duane Dean said grace. It was a nice co ngenial luncheon gathering. I complained about having no shoes to wear until I saw the man with no feet.

E-mailing a company with a comp liment or complaint is a great resource a nd another step in saving money for y our family. Have you ever written, em ailed or phoned a company to comp lain about their product? If it was an e rror on their part you will most likely g et coupons to replace the product. Ninety percent of the time when you c ontact the company with a praise you w ill also receive coupons in the mail. Every week on w ww.DivineSavings.com we have a M ail Call section that lists many compan ies and the contact information. With j ust a few minutes a week you can cont act the company and before you know i t (in a few weeks) coupons and samples s tart showing up in your mail box. I nstead of bills and junk mail, you will g et what I call happy mail. What do I say to the company when I c ontact them? Be truthful and honest when contacti ng a company about their product. On t he www.DivineSavings.com Mail Call p age you will find a sample letter that w ill help guide you on what to s ay/write. Honesty is always the best p olicy and you can add your own comm ents and pazzaz to it. Not too long ago I wrote to a compan y about how much my son loved their p roduct. After using a different brand t han my usual, he let me know in multiple ways that he really didnt care for it. In my 16-year-olds view that was important to him. I explained to the company what he had said and the company sent us free coupons for their product. I was very impressed. The coupons arrived within the week and we tried another variety of that brand that my son did like. There have been other times where I have taken a picture of the item that I was unhappy with, emailed the company and they replaced the product with the full purchase price. This is a sample of how to begin your email/letter. I do not ask for coupons in the message, simply compliment and/or make a suggestion. I love your Country Crock butter. I recently purchased a store brand instead and it was then that I realized just how much my family loves your butter. Etc.. How long does it take to contact the companies? It really only takes 10 minutes a week to write five companies a week. Companies enjoy the feedback, even a complaint as well as praise. By writing a short paragraph or two about the product or service it can help the company improve on the product. I keep a notepad in my kitchen to write down the name of the products and info that we like or dislike and when time permitted I send a short email. Almost 100 percent of all companies have a contact tab on their website where you can e-mail your concern or praise. Will I be spammed with junk mail? I do not feel comfortable giving out my email address. I do urge you to get a free email address with a company like Gmail or Hotmail so that your personal email doesnt fill up with offers etc. The tradeoff is worth it.

Writing to manufacturers a good way to get coupons Savings Diva Tanya Senseney DearAbby: Im a 14-year-old girl who just started high school. I started to notice boys when I was in middle school, and Id like to start dating soon. The problem is Ive never had a close friend who was a boy, and the idea isnt natural to me. How can I ask a boy out if I dont even grasp the concept of being friends with one? Im frustrated over this, especially because I really like one particular guy. The only advice I have been given is, Get over your fear and just talk to him. This isnt very helpful to me. I want to know how to get over my fear. Abby, your thoughts would be appreciated. Cant Find the Nerve in Ohio DearCant Find the Nerve: Ill gladly share some thoughts. The first is I hope you realize how many girls and guys your age feel exactly the same way you do. Social skills dont come naturally to everyone but they can be learned. And like any learned skill, they take practice. The surest cure for shyness which is the fear you are experiencing is to forget about yourself and concentrate on the other person. Smile and introduce yourself if the guy doesnt know you. If you share a class with him or know an activity hes involved in, ask a question about it. Hes not good at sports? Not musical? Ask him about a class assignment. You dont have to be brilliant or witty. Try leading off with a friendly remark or a compliment. (Nice shirt, cellphone, etc.) I know very few people who dont appreciate a compliment. Overcoming shyness takes practice, so dont go after the boy you really like at first. Make a point of smiling and saying hello to everyone. Its friendly, its welcoming. Keep in mind that the majority of people have the same insecurities you do. Many of them will respond positively because they appreciate being noticed. Thats how you make friends of both genders. I have a booklet that offers even more suggestions. The title is How to Be Popular, and it contains hints for polishing social skills for people of all ages. It can be ordered by sending your name and address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to Dear Abby Popularity Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Remember, you dont have to be the prettiest or smartest girl in school. But you can be one of the nicest. Show an interest in others. Be honest but always tactful. Cultivate your own interests so you will have something to talk about with others. If there are clubs at your school, join the ones that interest you. Its another way of making friends of both sexes. Most young people go out in groups these days. So, if you and some friend s plan to do something (and after you have been friend ly and let the young man you like notice you), smile and ask if hed like to come along. If hes shy, its a way of making him feel less self-conscious, too. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Girl can conquer shyness by reaching out to others Dear Abby LOS ANGELES (AP) The Emmy Awards will feature five special memorial tributes, including one to Glee star Cory Monteith.

HealthBenefits DidYouKnow?Florida tomatoes are a good source of lycopene (helps prevent skin damage from UVrays), vitamin C (needed for growth and repair of body tissues) and vitamin A (helps vision and bone growth). Did You Know? Botanically, the tomato is a fruit. However, they are legally considered a vegetable after a ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court. How to Buy The best test for a great tomato is aroma. Smell the stem end for a strong sweet-acidic fragrance. Choose tomatoes that are plump, shiny and give slight pressure when applied. How to Store Tomatoes should be stored at a cool room temperature, out of their packaging and never in the refrigerator. Storing tomatoes in the refrigerator diminishes their flavor. 1 large fresh Florida tomato, crushed 1 cup tomato sauce 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2 teaspoons dried parsley 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, chopped (save 4 to 6 for garnish) 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper 1 pound spaghetti 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese W hats Cooking
