By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Crimson-colored leaves, festive decor and those mouth-watering apple dumplings will take over The Palms of Sebring Wellness Center for the 17th year this week as the annual Apple Harvest Festival brings autumn into the Heartland. The annual festival is a long tradition at The Palms. It was created by the late Lester Kesselring, who had a love of all things fall and autumn. After his many travels to the more autumn prone areas of the northeast, Kesselring thought it would be a good idea to bring fall to Central Florida for all to enjoy. Through Kesselrings passion, the Apple Harvest Festival continues to ring in fall in Highlands County each year. Apples take center stage as the Palms Chef Mac creates one-of-a-kind desserts, treats and sweets for patrons to enjoy that drive home the fall feel. Macs famous app le dumplings are sure to continue to make their way home with residents and visitors alike. For the past few years, nearly 3,000 apple dumplings have been baked up and sold during the PalmsApple Harvest Festival. Other foods such as sauces, jams, pies, cookies will also be for sale.

Doors open Thursday for 17th annual event By PHILATTINGER pattinger@newssun.comAVON PARK The Avon Park City Council agreed Monday to reimburse City Manager Julian Deleon for legal fees from fighting an ethics complaint. Councilman Garrett Anderson, who filed ethics complaints against Deleon, abstained from the vote. Deleon had given his attorneys fees as $8,500 in mid-August, but an itemized account was not included with Mondays agenda. Councilman Parke Sutherland said he wanted to see an itemized bill. Deputy Mayor Brenda Giles also said she would like to be sure the bill isnt as much as $50,000 or $100,000. City Attorney Gerald Buhr said he, as city attorney, would review any itemized list and determine what are reasonable legal fees. Deleon also asked the city not to seek reimbursement from him unless he was able to get reimbursement from Anderson through Floridas Commission on Ethics. Sutherland expressed concern that the city might prompt the Ethics Commission to not seek pa yment from Anderson by paying Deleon now.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK South Florida State College will use a recently awarded $1 million grant for programs in logistics and cybersecurity. South Florida State College is one of 11 Florida College System institutions that will receive grant funding through the U.S. Department of Labor to prepare workers in growing industries. The colleges will use the funding to design training programs that students can complete in two years or less. The funding will be used to build capacity and infrastructure, leverage distance learning, develop training modules that respond to business and industry needs and expand career pathways tied to high-skill jobs. SFSC is a member of a seven Florida college consortium that was awarded a total grant of $10,950,000 for Project XCEL-ITto accelerate and improve efforts to deliver workforce training in rural, economically challenged portions of the state. SFSCs $1 million portion of the grant will be allocated over a three-year period. That consortium, led by the College of Central Florida, includes Brevard Community College, Edison State College, North Florida Community College, Palm Beach State College, and St. Johns River State College. According to Kevin Brown, dean of the Division of Applied Sciences and Technologies, SFSC will use the grant monies for programs in logistics and cybersecurity, in tandem with the six other colleges in the consortium. This is a great opportunity for SFSC to continue in its efforts to both meet the needs of our communities and bring cutting edge opportunities in education to them, he said. Our primary focus is to train people for new jobs. The grant money comes from the U.S. Department of Labor and was allocated to help people get new jobs when their existing jobs may have been shipped overseas or lost due to the downturn in the economy. SFSC will develop a program in logistics that emphasizes handling inventories, such as transportation of inventories and product distribution. Today, companies want inventory on demand, Brown said. For instance, Boeing may prefer to have parts for its planes delivered within a particular timeframe rather than having a stockpile of them sitting around their own facility. So, for Boeings suppliers, its important to understand accurate vehicle tracking and package tracking. The college is currently researching where in its service district of DeSoto, Hardee, and Highlands counties the logistics program will have the greatest impact. Acybersecurity program will address reducing the risk of computer security breaches. The part of the program on forensics for information technology will be embedded within SFSCs Criminal Justice program. Students would learn the techniques of securing admissible evidence of IT devices, such as those techniques seen on the television show CSI. Another part of the program will be delivered through the colleges Computer Science Department. The logistics and cybersecurity programs will hav e credit programs, allowing students to earn associate degrees. The associate degrees can become pathways toward earning bach elors degrees. Training for non-credit will be availabl e as well. Someone who is working for a business that needs more secure firewal ls on its computer system, for instance, will be able to take a class within the cybersecurity program. The seven colleges in the consortium will share the responsibility of developing the curriculum and best practices for these program s and will mentor each other on providing them to a po pulation that goes beyond their own service districts. They will provide consistency of information so that every college maintains th e same standard of educatio nal experience.

In those d ays, while potentially dang erous, mowers were fairly b enign. The main threats to h ealth were cardiac arrest a nd dehydration. It took until after World W ar II for the motorized m ower industry to take off, t he result of expanding subu rbs and breakthroughs in p lastic, small engines and g asoline products. By the 1960s, riding mowe rs were on the market and h ave been refined ever since. T oday there are fast-moving l awn mowers that turn on a d ime. Cutting blades typicall y spin at 160 mph. According to Total L andscape Care Magazine, it f ield tested a Dixie Chopper Xcaliber in 2007, mowing a 60-acre field in five hours. All of which is to say lawn mowers have evolved into serious machines. The proof is in the increasing number of serious injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as many as 16,000 children under the age of 19 are injured every year in mower accidents. There have been three accidents in the news since April, one of those a 2-yearold boy from Lake Placid who was backed over by a mower while he rode his bike. He suffered severe leg injuries. What this means is we have to take greater care. It is no longer safe to ride on granddads lap or to let the children play in the yard while the mower is in use. Be sure young children and pets are safely in the house. Between the speed of the mower, its noise and the dulling routine, it is too easy to lose concentration and put others at risk. Even a wellbehaved child can take a surprising turn and run in just the wrong direction at just the wrong time. Never let a child ride in your lap. People have died like that. Be sure teenagers understand the no passenger rule. Dont let anyone under the age of 16 drive a highpowered mower and be sure they wear sturdy shoes when they do. Dont just look over your shoulder when preparing to go in reverse, check more than once. Whenever a terrible accident happens, like the 2year-old who lost her feet when her father accidentally ran over them, our typical reaction is shock that it happened to us. This is one tragedy that be avoided by simply being careful. Be mindful when mowing T echnology has overwhelmed us again, in an area we dont usually associate with invention maint aining our yards. Mother Earth lost a friend in Williams E ditor: It was with profound sadn ess that I felt when reading a bout the death of Willie W illiams. I knew this fine e nvironmentalist for many y ears and was always happy t o interact with him. He was t he kind of kindred soul that m ade you feel special b ecause you chose to be like h imself a protector of the e nvironment and willing to d o what was necessary to a chieve goals. I knew him as a leader in the Native Plant S ociety, and an expert in sett ing up and maintaining Blue B ird trails. The remarkable w ork he did in that field at t he Avon Park Bombing R ange was a good example o f this mans dedication to a j ob that could be the envy of o thers who had similar proje cts. There was a time when I w as helping the Archbold B iological Station collect c ertain environmental data at a wonderful piece of propert y off Lake Mirror Drive, in L ake Placid, owned by A rchbold. Some of the p lants found there were so s uperb that I invited Willie t o visit. He did so, and baref ooted (!), soaked up the b eauty of certain plants; m aking the kind of enthusia stic comments you would e xpect from a person that l oved the Creators work. O ne tree stood out in particular for Willie and he sounded like he just discovered gold! He jumped up and down and said, That tree! That tree! Its a real special tree! I will have to inform the right people about it and have it placed in the National Registry of Outstanding Specimens! Well, he did, and it was. The tree, by the way, was a Black Gum. Im sure others have similar stories about Willie Williams, giving you a better insight into this wonderful environmentalist. I take notice that his remains have been buried in the Fort Kissimmee Cemetary at the Avon Park Air Force Base. In my opinion, a better resting place could not be found, as it will be not too far from his beloved Blue Bird Trail. Hank Kowalski Lake PlacidFighting cancer at home and in Washington, D.C.Editor: Romona Washington 9/23/13 w/pic As a survivor of cancer, I know that public policy can be a vital tool in the fight against cancer. I have been working with other people touched by cancer in Florida to educate our elected officials how their decisions can help people prevent and fight the disease. Last week, I traveled to Washington, D.C., to represent the voice of cancer survivors and patients in Congressional District 17. When I met with Congressman Tom Rooney, I told him that continued support of research funding and prevention programs is critical to finding cures and stopping cancer before it starts. Without adequate federal funding, potential discoveries in research labs across the country may be trapped in beakers and test tubes while families sit waiting for treatments that could save the life of their loved one. Our elected officials need to hear from the nearly 14 million cancer survivors in this country. I know I made a difference this past week, and I encourage everyone to get involved. Visit www.acscan.org/ to be connected to people like me in your community. Let us work togetheracross the country to finish the fight against cancer.

I would like to respond and offer a different perspective to your (Sunday) editorial Time to break bread in Avon Park. Here is the bottom line: the City has dealt with a number of frivolous employment lawsuits and regulatory complaints. These complaints have finally started working ... through the legal and regulatory system. As the complaints have been fully examined and investigated the City of Avon Park has prevailed against all charges on every single instance. We have not lost a single complaint yet. As previously stated, their batting average remains a flat zero. All of the unsuccessful complainants are inter-related and have retained the same attorney for legal advice. One recent example is the federal lawsuit filed by Sally Perry, which was dismissed by the judge. Another example is the E.E.O.C. charge filed by Joy Estredge, which was investigated and dismissed. Another example is the Florida Department of Environmental Protection complaint filed by Union President Tammy Macklin, which was investigated and dismissed. Similarly, Councilman (Garrett) Anderson, without any basis of fact, signed, notarized and swore to an affidavit with reckless disregard for the truth. His frivolous complaint against me was independently investigated twice and dismissed twice. He is having difficulty understanding this reality and refuses to accept it. More importantly, here are the pieces to the puzzle, which your paper needs to connect and inform the public. As Union President, Tammy Macklin campaigned for Mr. Anderson on election day with a loud bullhorn just outside the election precinct. Other high ranking union officials campaigned for Anderson right on Main Street. Some of the necessary measures taken to stabilize the citys finances from bankruptcy have been highly unpopular with the citys labor unions in the losing of 50 jobs and lack of pay raises. It is my opinion that the councilman may feel some level of devotion towards those associations and affiliations which helped him get elected. The objectives of smaller leaner government are sometimes contradictor y to unions when 50 jobs are cut. ...The big picture from 2009 is a municipality that was on the brink of bankruptcy with financial troubles and furthermore could not even pay monthly bills The City of Avon Park, as an organization, has bee n transformed. Not only have we established a reserve fund for emergencies, but also provided a 95 percent property tax cut in relief for city residents and businesses, and passed a 20 percen t garbage rate reduction, grown the city limits by more than 2 square miles (and) established many public and private partnerships which have increased efficiencies and increased the levels of services provided. More importantly, we have the distinguished bragging rights of being debt free this coming December. This is a unique position to attain in the past two years. Please understand that going from bankruptcy to being debt free with reserve funds requires heavy lifting and restructuring of the entire organization. These organizational changes involved difficult and controversial decisions by administration and the city council. This is why w e have lawsuits and controversy but overall has our financial position and standing improved? While breaking bread is fine with me, turning a blind eye to misfeasance, malfeasance, charter and ordinance violations is not. There is a difference, and it is important for your readers to fully understand this difference. City ordinance and state law requires building permits to be pulled on new construction. Councilman Anderson failed to pull permits when he acquired and converted a common materials storage warehouse into an ammunition manufacturing factory. When his factory equipment went damag ed as a likely result of faulty electrical wiring, he then expected a local licensed contractor to help him file Deleon: a different perspective Guest Column Julian Deleon See DELEON, A4

The cont ractor refused to participate i n the insurance filing, and i nstead filed a complaint i ndependently with the buildi ng official for the county, t he citys fire marshal, and t hen lastly filed a complaint w ith the city managers o ffice. I had nothing to do w ith these activities. On the s urface, this appeared as an i nsurance impropriety, and it w as relayed as such to the c ity when the unpermitted w ork is what likely caused t he $100,000 in damages to t he equipment. As city manager, I do not h ave the authority to grant a s itting councilman a hallway p ass for not complying with c ity ordinance or state law r elative to unpermitted cons truction work. I consulted w ith the city attorney when t he complaint was filed and a cted on his advice on how to p rocess. This is not about breaking b read, it is about C ouncilman Anderson having t o follow the same laws and r ules as the citizens. Given t he explosive nature of the a mmunition making process, h e should have known better a nd safeguarded the public w elfare by not cutting corn ers, hiring professionals and s ecuring the proper building p ermits required for electric al, mechanical and structural w ork constructed at his bullet m aking factory. In a related matter, in viol ation of the citys charter, C ouncilman Anderson r efused to participate and a nswer any questions relative t o the investigation authori zed by the city council. To t his very day, several issues r emain unsubstantiated or u nanswered given his failure t o participate in the city c ouncils charter authorized i nvestigation. Being elected to public office does not place Councilman Anderson above the law or above other citizens. If the law requires him to pull a building permit for electrical, mechanical and structural elements constructed at the Anderson Arms Factory, then he should have done so, especially given that his line of work deals with highly flammable explosives in the ammunition making process. If the city charter requires for Councilman Anderson to cooperate in an investigation authorized by the city council, then he should have cooperated. Instead he refused to participate and left many questions regarding his conduct unanswered. Similarly, if he receives a traffic citation from a deputy, if necessary, he should challenge this citation through the proper venue, in court like the rest of us, and not through a sheriffs captain cell phone on a late Saturday afternoon. His overall conduct appears as someone who is expected to be given a pass due to his elected position. When I would not turn a blind eye to his misconduct, he opted to punish me by filing a blatantly false complaint with the Commission on Ethics. Yes, after being exonerated from two separate investigations, I believe that I am entitled to attorneys fees, specifically when a complaint is filed as part of my job duties as city manager for Avon Park. As for parting bread, this is real wishful thinking on the papers part given the history and evident motivations. Julian Deleon is city manager of Avon Park.

She just doesn t give up. Jan Merop, who read to c hildren while the Praz Kids c offee shop was open, says m uch the same thing. I saw h er love for kids and the a rts, she said, and her e fforts to bring them togethe r. Deep in heart she wants t o be a blessing for child ren. Kay-Salvo needs that e nthusiasm and perseverance. She began her work in 2008, and learned a lot along the way. Starting with a coffee shop in Lake Placid, KaySalvos first idea was to raise money for scholarships through the shops sales. The effort, however, was not productive so she did away with the shop, redesigned her plan, and is expanding her board of directors whose function will be to raise money. In January 2014, she expects to have a website up and running and will work with the school district to identify more students. So far ,12 scholarships have been awarded. The goal is to significantly increase that number. Praz Kids also offers tutoring, especially for students with learning disabilities. Joe Salvo, Kay-Salvos husband, is a retired teacher with 30 years of experience. As a mark of his support he is volunteering to tutor, too. This program may seem small at the moment, but it has the potential to reach many children. More to the point, Kay-Salvo embodies the kind of person who deserves recognition as a quiet individual who saw a need and is working on a solution.

Praz Kids aims to help young talents get artistic scholarships Special to the News-SunSebring Friends and family coming to visit Florida this winter should plan now to attend the 10th annual U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, Jan. 16-19, at Sebring Regional Airport. Its a great time to enjoy a post-holiday getaway to an area that offers adventure for every member of the family. With Orlando, Tampa, and Fort Myers each about a two-hour drive away, families can choose to visit the major Florida family attractions or spend a few days on the beach while visiting our event, Expo director Jana Filip said. The exhibition-only event, provides opportunities for visitors to see, try, fly, and buy anything related to homebuilt, sport, and light-sport aircraft. This year, the Expo is extending a special welcome to owners and enthusiasts of homebuilt aircraft to participate in the event. Weve noticed a lot of crossover in avionics and other equipment between light-sport aircraft and homebuilts, and were seeing more experimental light-sport aircraft kits coming into the marketplace, so it makes sense to reach out to the homebuilt community, Filip said. Were also planning to conduct our first homebuilding workshops this year. Stewart Systemsfabric covering experts have committed to presenting a workshop demonstrating its FAR Part 23 and STCapproved, people-safe covering process. Expos forums also will focus on various aspects of kit buil ding aircraft, with six new forum presenters slated to provide more information about homebuilding. Flight Design USAhas signed on as an Elite Sponsor for 2014. Tom Peghiny, president of Flig ht Design USA, said, Flight Design has become a spon sor of the Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo for several reasons.The show is very productive for finding qualified buyers. It is held during the pa rt of the year when people a re starting to make their purchase decisions, and the Expo has created a fresh image of sport aviation that our company wants to be associated with. The Expo is the right balance between a trade show for professionals and a fun show for aviation enthusiasts and the public.

Associated PressBOSTON Forty attorneys general sent a letter to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday urging the agency to meet its own deadline and regulate electronic cigarettes in the same way it regulates tobacco products. The letter says e-cigarettes are being marketed to children through cartoon-like advertising characters and by offering fruit and candy flavors, much like cigarettes were once marketed to hook new smokers. At the same time, e-cigarettes are becoming more affordable and more widely available as the use of regular cigarettes decline as they become more expensive and less socially acceptable. Unlike traditional tobacco products, there are no federal age restrictions that would prevent children from obtaining e-cigarettes, nor are there any advertising restrictions, DeWine wrote. Electronic cigarettes are metal or plastic battery-powered devices resembling traditional cigarettes that heat a liquid nicotine solution, creating vapor that users inhale. Users get nicotine without the chemicals, tar or odor of regular cigarettes. E-cigarettes are being advertised during prime-time television hours at a time when many children are watching, according to the letter, which has led a surge in sales and use. The health effects of e-cigarettes have not been adequately studied and the ingredients are not regulated, the letter said. Special to the News-SunLAKE WALES Rising 205 feet over central Floridas rolling hills of citrus is one of the great achievements of Americas golden age of architecture Edward W. Boks art deco, neo-Gothic Singing Tower, which houses one of the worlds finest carillons and serves as the iconic focal point of Bok Tower Gardens. No other setting like it exists anywhere in the world, and no other book explores the story of this extraordinary public monument like Bok Tower Gardens: Americas Taj Mahal by Kenneth Treister and David Price, set for official release this October. According to Price, coauthor and president of Bok Tower Gardens, Boks story is one of appreciation and giving back to the country that afforded him so much over his lifetime. Bok wanted to create a place of beauty as a gift to the American people, and the culmination of his lifes work was the dedication of the gardens and tower in 1929, Price said. Its part of American history, a story that deserves to be told. Built in 1929 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1993, Bok Tower Gardens is an architectural and landscape masterpiece. Publisher, philanthropist, and naturalist Edward Bok commissioned two esteemed designerslandscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and architect Milton B. Medaryto create a sanctuary that would preserve the areas natural beauty and become a haven for birds and wildlife. The result is a meandering, historic landscape garden in a contemplative and informal woodland setting offering a series of romanti c recesses and tranquil restin g spots, picturesque vistas and breathtaking views of Bok s 60-bell, marble and coquina Singing Tower carillon. Millions of visitors from all over the world have traveled to Bok Tower Gardens over the years to experience Boks vision first hand. Now co-authors Treister and Price, in conjunction with former Harvard University president Derek Bok, former Florida governor and senator Bob Graham, and architectural photographer Dan Forer bring this story to life in Bok Tower Gardens: Americas Taj Mahal, the first book of its kind about this unique destination.

NEWYORK (AP) Burger King wants people to feel less guilty about gobbling up its french fries. The worlds No. 2 hamburger chain is launching a new crinkle-cut french fry on Tuesday that it says has about 20 percent fewer calories than its regular fries. The chain says a small order of the new Satisfries clocks in at 270 calories because of a new batter that doesnt absorb as much oil. By comparison, a small order of its regular fries, sans crinkles, has 340 calories. The concept of taking an indulgent food and removing some of the guilt isnt new, of course. Supermarkets are filled with baked potato chips, 100-calorie packs of popular treats. Such creations play on peoples inability to give up their food vices, even as they struggle to eat better. The idea is to create something that skimps on calories, but not on taste. Burger King executives say people wont be able to tell that Satisfries are lower in calories. The Pension Board is autonomous from the city, but Warner was the city councils appointed representative to the board. The city council had hoped to see Warner or another trustee Monday, but City Manager Julian Deleon told the council Warner had said in an email that he was not interested in having a joint meeting with the city. Deleon wanted to remove Warner at a special meeting on Sept. 4, but was told no by the council on the grounds that Warner was not there to speak for himself. Instead, the city council set joint meeting with the police pension board on Oct. 14. Anderson said Monday that the city should stick with that plan, especially since pension board members wanted to wait until their attorney could be present. So, if we already made provisions to make a meeting, lets do what we said we were going to do, give these people the respect they deserve the benefit of the doubt and have the meeting, Anderson said. Deleon said he got documents from the City of Bartow within a week of asking because a member of the police pension board there had been copied on the emails. Through those emails, Deleon said Warner and Police Pension Board Administrator Carol Knapp have been maneuvering to terminate the police pension system without other pension board members knowing about it. Deleon said he wanted Knapps records to find out who else was informed. He said that although many people in the plan might not be old enough to retire, closing the plan means each vested member would get a lump sum check based on expected life span. That could easily run into the tens of millions of dollars, said Brian W. Koji with Allen, Norton & Blue, a labor and employment law firm in Tampa. Deleon also accuses Knapp, Warner and others including Anderson of intentionally bypassing Sunshine laws by using per sonal email accounts to com municate with each other. Anderson was copied on emails while Councilman Parke Sutherland liaison to the pension board was not. Anderson said he turned in all copies of those emails and broke no laws. Deleon asked Anderson to enlighten us since you have a direct pipeline, but Anderson said he had no answers for pension board members intentions. Sutherland said he was concerned the issue has dragged on for eight weeks without meaningful response and didnt believe a joint meeting would be useful if the board chair had refused to attend a joint meeting. Buhr said the meeting was to explain what was being said, but had nothing to do with the records request. He said it appeared to be an intentional delay of releasing documents.

Anderson said he b elieves Avon Park has s een more lawsuits in D eleons two years as city m anager than in the last 20, a nd didnt believe didnt b elieve city taxpayers s hould pay Deleons legal b ill. Mayor Sharon Schuler s aid that if Deleon were to s eek funds through the E thics Commission, the s tate would seek payment f rom Anderson. Anderson said thats fine. Why do the citizens of A von Park have to pay t hat? Anderson asked. Anderson said that if the c ity sets a precedent, it w ould need to pay his a ttorney fees both for the e thics complaint and the i nvestigation done at the c ity managers request w hich found nothing a gainst Anderson. The reason there were n o findings is because you d idnt cooperate with the i nvestigation, Buhr said. Amidst rumbling from o ther council members, A nderson said that was o nly Buhrs opinion, since h is actions did not stop the i nvestigation. He also said his legal f ees stemmed from being o n the city council and the c ity council authorizing an i nvestigation. Deleon said that when the city asked for an investigation, he cooperated fully and Anderson flat out refused. By direction of legal council, Anderson said. Sutherland said the reason Anderson would not be entitled to recoup funds is because no one filed an ethics complaint or lawsuit against him. An audience member called Sutherlands statement an opinion. He said he was elected to give his opinion and welcomed her to the podium, if she had asked permission to speak. He also said Anderson didnt have anything on the agenda asking for reimbursement and would need to submit that for a future meeting. Anderson asked if the city council could vote to reimburse his expenses upon seeing receipts. Sutherland said it would need to be reviewed and voted on at that time. Anderson also asked, since the Ethics Commission is not an actual court, if it was necessary for Deleon to hire an attorney. Buhr declined to answer, but suggested Andersons own attorney could look into that matter and bring a lawsuit. But Im saying hes going to be wasting his time and your money by doing so because youre not entitled to any money or attorneys fees from this panel, Buhr said. Complaints by Anderson were dismissed by the Ethics Commission for not meeting the threshold for probable cause. In his complaint, Anderson claimed that his ammunition manufacturing business Anderson Arms Inc. was investigated in retaliation for questioning why Deleon should be allowed to live in Lake Placid while Avon Parks city manager. Anderson claimed his business received visits from the county building inspector and city fire department inspector shortly after that, both of whom told him they were instructed to find something wrong. However, when questioned during the ethics investigation, both inspectors denied being sent by Deleon or telling Anderson their jobs were threatened if they didnt find violations. Deleon also said he couldnt direct the county official. In other communications with the News-Sun, Deleon also claimed that he had acted on a complaint from a member of the public that Andersons business had been improperly wired for manufacturing and was a hazard. Anderson said Monday that inspectors and an investigation by the city found nothing wrong at his business. Continued from A1 Apple Festival starts Thursday Warner removed from pension board post by AP city council By PHILATTINGER pattinger@newssun.comAVON PARK The Avon Park City Council approved its 2013-14 budget Monday with no discussion from council members or the public. The $17.3 million budget includes cuts in property taxes and garbage fees and a plan to eliminate debt by December. The property tax rate is 30 cents per $1,000 of taxable property value, meaning that a homeowner with a $125,000 home and one homestead exemption would only pay $30 in property taxes. The citys expected tax revenue, according to City Manager Julian Deleon, would be $63,830 for the 2013-14 fiscal year. Deleon said the city will manage on that amount thanks to reduced expenses, a reduced workforce from 103 to less than 50 employees news areas annexed into the city limits for water and sewer service and a reduction in the law enforcement contract with the Highlands County Sheriffs Office of $553,000 since last year. Overall, the city would have $4.94 million in revenue in the coming fiscal year with a total general fund budget of $9.88 million. Deleon said city would have a revised general fund contingency of $255,000 still more than 2011s budg et of $148,000 and more than two and a half months of operating revenue in reserves: $3 million. Deleon has also expresse d concern over pension costs, such as $130,000 for the police pension and more than $357,000 for the fire pension, which made up almost half of the citys $744,000 payroll. He has been in negotiations with pension boards t o lower those costs. However strife between Deleon and officials with the police pension board have left those negotiations at a standstill.

The Friday morning bass tournament on Lake Glenada will end on Sept. 27, with the big bass pot no longer needing an eight-pound bass to win. The largest bass in that tournament will take home the big bass pot. Beginning Oct. 4, we will be holding a OneMan bass tournament on Dinner Lake. In addition to allowing only one person per boat, the weigh-in limit will go to five bass over 14 inches (or four bass over 14 inches and one bass over 22 inches). Most bass tournaments are team events, pairing a boater with a non-boater. Many of our fishermen enjoy fishing alone and often fish in the weekly tournaments by themselves anyway, so a one-man tournament is a little different approach. Unlike a team event, each angler must catch their own fish and the tournament is truly a test of skills for each angler. The cost will continue to be $20 per boat with a 100-percent payback to first and second place. First place will receive $15 per boat entry and second place will receive $5 per boat entry. In the event of a tie, the total pot will be split evenly between the two individuals with the same weight and no second place will be paid. The big bass pot will be $2 per week and will roll over from week to week until someone catches and weighs in a bass of 8 pounds or greater. Afew of the rules we follow include: Each fisherman must be at least 18 years old Life vests should be worn while operating the big motor or on rough water No airboats or pontoon boats Artificial bait only No getting out of the boat except for emerge ncies (i.e. rest room) All fish must be released in at least 4o f water, or you may keep your fish Use courtesy to all boaters Paul Tardiff of Sebring will be the tournament director and also the weigh-master. I will be responsible for checking livewells and keeping the correct time. All tournaments will start at 7:30 a.m. and end at Noon. Anyone coming in late will be disqualified .Crappie-Thon REDS II will be sponsoring a 3-month Crappie-thon beginning Tuesday, Oct. 1, and ending Monday, Dec. 30. There will be monthly winners of the biggest crappie as well as a monthly raffle. There will be no entry fee; however, contestants must register prior to weighing in their largest fish. There is no limit to how many fish you can weigh in and the biggest crappie each month will receive a $50 REDS II Gift Certificate. The person weighing in the biggest crappie for the entire 3 months will receive a custom S PORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, September 25, 2013 D ISTRICT S POTLIGHT (through Preseason)D ISTRICT 11-6A Dist.

Don Norton One-Man Bass Tournaments By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa B ay Buccaneers are winless a nd have scored one touchd own in the past two games, y et coach Greg Schiano r emains confident the team h as what it takes to be succ essful. Schiano reiterated Monday t hat Josh Freeman is his s tarting quarterback and that h e also has the utmost conf idence in offensive coordin ator Mike Sullivan. The Bucs (0-3) have lost e ight of nine games dating to l ast season, when they failed t o make the playoffs for the f ifth consecutive year. History says it will be diff icult to snap the streak this y ear. Since the NFLadopted a 1 6-game schedule in 1978, j ust five of 161 teams that h ave started 0-3 have gone o n to earn a postseason b erth. That includes the 1982 B ucs, who finished 5-4 in a s trike-shortened season. The 1998 Buffalo Bills, w ho went 10-6 before losing in the wild-card round, were the last team to do it. The NFLhas a lot of ups and downs, and starting off 0-3 is not one of the downs you want to get caught in, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. Its definitely difficult, but we have 100 percent confidence that we can bounce back from this. The have scored 34 points in three games, 27 by the offense. The teams last offensive touchdown a 5-yard pass from Freeman to Kevin Ogletree came during the opening quarter of a 16-14 loss to New Orleans, and the scoring drive covered just 35 yards. Schiano said the teams offensive woes arent solely related to the play of the struggling Freeman, who was 19 of 41 passing for 236 yards, no touchdowns and one interception during Sundays 23-3 loss at New England. The Bucs are tied with Jacksonville for fewest offensive TDs in the league with three. Oakland also had three entering its game Monday night against Denver. Hes done some good things, and hes done some things hed like to change and wed like to, said Schiano, who didnt fly home with the team Sunday, remaining behind to check on his dad, who became ill during the game. But its the whole offensive unit. We need to be more precise, added Schiano, who returned to Tampa on a later flight. We need to coach more precisely. Its everybody involved. ... If we just do our jobs, well score a lot of points. Freeman threw for more than 4,000 yards and 27 TDs a year ago, helping the Bucs set a franchise record for points scored. So, the slow start to this season was unexpected. Schiano said little details, which he declined to be specific about, are stopping the offense from performing like its capable. Penalties, dropped passes and other mistakes have been a factor. Nothing surprises me in this game, ever, the coach added of the struggles. Disappointed, yes not discouraged. Well get it. This is the 12th time the Bucs have started 0-3, and the 1982 strike-shortened season was the only time theyve rebounded to finish with a winning record. Schiano feels the team has good players, proven methods, good schemes and good coaches and can turn the season around by sticking with the plan he brought to Tampa Bay from Rutgers in 2012. And for at least the time being, that still includes Freeman at quarterback not rookie Mike Glennon. The coach said despite the offenses problems, there are things Freeman has been doing well. I think he understands what were trying to do with our offense. I think when hes in the pocket and feels comfortable, hes delivering Winless Bucs face uphill battle to make playoffs See BUCS, Page B3 MCTpho to Despite his and the teams slow start, Bucs head coach Greg Schiano says quarterback Josh Freemans job is safe.

This was thought t o be a potential forage and s oil stabilizer. However, it b ecame a serious pest. The p lant produces a seed/bloom p od and is spread by wind a nd animals. It can be cont rolled with chemical s prayed three times annually. Air potato, bioscorea b ulbifera, non-native, was f irst introduced to the A mericas from Africa and to F lorida in 1905. It is a twini ng vine with heart-shaped l eaves, grows rapidly on a nything it can reach. It prod uces a small potato on the v ine and has large tubers u nderground. Prevention is a k ey step in the management o f it. Harvest the potato, dig u p the tuber and destroy.

Pearls Pearls Pearl Carter Friends & Neighbors Placid Lakes Party Line B y Susie Lee Tropical Harbor Estates By Arlene Clouston I dont use a microwave and this has nothing to do with following aPaleo lifestyle. I started avoiding microwaves when I was a newmother. My distaste for microwaves actually came from a lactationnurse. A week after my son was born, he was in the hospital for a weekwith RSV. He was too sick to nurse, so I was pumping a lot. The nursesfroze the breast milk for me to take home with me, but I was giveninstructions to not microwave it, not even for 20 seconds. When I asked why, the nurse said that nuking it would kill all of thenutrients and enzymes in the milk and Id be left with nothing. If breast milk is stripped of its nutrients when microwaved, then whatabout vegetables, eggs and meat? Amicrowave is a nutrient zapper. Plain and simple. And when youredishing out a fortune on healthy foods, which we already know aredepleted of many of their minerals and vitamins by the time we buythem, why would you want to remove all that nutrition in the name ofconvenience? In fact, those nutrients that are removed from vegetablesthrough microwaving are transformed into carcinogenic free radicals. The Russians banned microwaves back in 1976. The following reasonswere cited in some very dated literature, so I cant know for sure howscientific these findings were, but they are enough for me to unplugthe microwave for good: Thawing frozen fruits in the microwave turned some of theircompounds into carcinogens Microwaved plants (especially root veggies) were found to havecarcinogenic free radicals Even short amounts of time in the microwave turned plant alkaloidsin cooked, raw and frozen veggies into carcinogens When microwaving grains and milk, amino acids were converted intocarcinogenic substances Russian investigators found carcinogens in almost all of themicrowaved food that they tested. I know what youre thinking ...But Leanne! How will I livewithout a microwave? You learn to get by! We didnt have microwaves in our kitchens priorto the mid to late s. We got by just fine back then! We should be eating raw foods more often anyway, so heres a goodexcuse to bulk up on the raw leafy greens with every meal (yes, evenbreakfast). Instead of sticking froze n food in the microwave to thaw it, use yourrefrigera tor. You can also use a bow l of cold water to thaw your food. Reheat foods in a toaster oven, a sauce pan or in the frying pan,depending on what youre dealing with. Casseroles do fine in the oven(reheat foods at a tem perature of 200-250), leftover pizza isdelicious reheated in the frying pan, and soups or coffee can beheated in a saucepan on the stove. Trust me when I tell you foodtastes better this way, too. Will it be hard to get used to life without the microwave? For a dayor two. But its like anything else. You will learn to adapt!

Clubs & Organizations Realtors help feed Humane Society pets Wendys helping LPHSmarching band Technology By ANICK JESDANUN APTechnology WriterNEWYORK Microsoft refreshed its Surface tablet computers Monday, giving them longer battery life and better comfort on laps as the software giant continues its transformation into a devices and services company. The company said it tried to address many shortcomings of the first-generation Surface models, sales of which have been slow. Microsoft needs to boost its tablet business to make up for sales declines in traditional desktop and laptop computers. The new models come with a better built-in kickstand so they can rest more firmly on userslaps while they sit on the couch. Microsoft is also making a docking station and a wireless mouse for business customers who need the mobility of tablets but also desire the traditional ways of using computers while in the office. Weve definitely gotten a year smarter, Brian Hall, general manager of sales and marketing for Surface, said in an interview. The redesigned Surface tablets come at a time of transition for Microsoft. Earlier this month, Microsoft struck a deal to acquire Nokias phone and services business for $7.2 billion. The company is also searching for a new CEO to replace Steven A. Ballmer, who announced last month that he plans to retire within the next year. The Surface Pro 2 is targeted at professionals who want the full power of a laptop in a tablet-style device. With a starting price of $899, the Pro 2 uses a full version of the upcoming Windows 8.1, meaning it can run any program written for Windows desktops and laptops. The Pro 2 promises 75 percent more battery life than the debut Pro model, which came out in February. The improvement comes partly from the use of Intels Haswell chip, which uses less energy. Theres also an optional Power Cover accessory that extends battery life even further. Acheaper model, Surface 2, offers a 25 percent improvement in battery life, which means it can get up to 10 hours of use. It also has a better screen compared with last Octobers Surface RT. It uses Windows RT8.1, meaning it can run only apps specifically designed for it. Microsoft said it now has 100,000 apps, or 10 times what was available last year. Like other RTtablets, Microsoft is including a version of its Office software for free with the Surface 2. But now, the package will have the Outlook email and calendar program, not just Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Microsoft is selling the Surface 2 starting at $449 and will continue to offer last years Surface RTfor $349. The Surface 2 and the Surface Pro 2 will come with 200 gigabytes of free online storage through SkyDrive for two years, as well as free calls and Wi-F i hotspots through Skype for a year. The new tablets wi ll go on sale Oct. 22, a few days after Microsoft releas es its 8.1 update to its Windows 8 operating system on Oct. 17. The screen on both new models remains at 10.6 inches, measured diagonally. Microsoft unveils new Surface, fixes shortcomings APPhoto/Mark Lennih an Panos Panay, corporate vice president of Microsoft, introduces a new Surface tablet Monday in New York.

Recently I was in the supermarket and had a bad experience at checkout. I tried to use my store coupons and manufacturer coupons, but the cashier kept telling me that I couldnt do that. The manager ended up coming over and helping out, but I was embarrassed by that time. The store did take all my coupons, but I dont understand why the cashier didnt want to take the coupon. Can you tell me why? Store policies, if not in writing, can be a little unclear on what a shopper can and cant do. Another commonality is the cashier may not be fully educated on the store policy and what coupons he/she can actually accept. Check out your stores website for the policy, or next time you are in, ask the customer service counter if they have a printed coupon policy you can have. Most stores will have this readily accessible. Most stores do allow manufacturer-plus-store coupon at checkout. The store values this practice as it makes the consumer feel good about their savings and store experience. A happy experience means the consumer will most likely return again. Teresas store does allow the use of one manufacturer coupon and one store coupon on the same item. At the end of her transaction the manager came over and addressed the coupon issue and apologized. The manager later helped Teresa out with her groceries. There may be times when it is unclear to the cashier what to do and will have the manager give the final say. Annie experienced a similar situation at her local drug store. Tanya, I remember in your coupon seminar one of your top 10 tips were Keep pr print the store policies and carry them with you either bookmarked on my phone or in my organizer. I really wish I had done that. I am very sorry that I didnt because last week at the store I wanted to use two manufacturer coupons on products that were buyone, get-one free. The cashier would not let me use both coupons when they clearly stated $1 off any one. I was rushed and had my baby with me so I didnt wait for the manage r to fight this. The next day when I had time, I pulled out the copy of the policy and I was right. Had I kept that copy with me in my coupon binder I would of saved more Savvy Saving Tip: By having your coupon polic y on hand (either saved on your phone or a printed copy inside your coupon binder), you will be more knowledgeable and save time at checkout.

Know your store policies DearAbby: Im 21, and my 16-year-old sister is out of control. She told me she smokes marijuana, drinks alcohol, abuses painkillers and recently mentioned she does coke. Abby, she is beautiful, and I dont want to see her do this to herself. Shes living with me about an hour away from my parents because Dad is an alcoholic and he abuses our mother. I brought my sister here to get her away from all that because I know what it was like growing up there. Im having trouble giving her advice to stay away from those things because I did them, and I feel like a hypocrite. My parents cant get through to her, either. Please help. Trying to be a Big Sis DearTrying: Youre lucky you were able to straighten out without becoming addicted to any of the substances you experimented with, but your sister may not be so lucky. Because shes out of control, you must step in and put a stop to it for her sake. Your sister needs counseling, and if she is going to remain your responsibility, it is imperative that you assert control. Talk to her school counselor about getting her the help she needs. You may have to drug-test your sister on a random basis as a condition of her continuing to live with you. Kits are available at your pharmacy. Stop feeling guilty, stay strong, and you may be able to steer your sister back on the right path. DearAbby: Im a 23year-old soldier in the Army, currently deployed overseas. Im less than a month away from returning home to my husband. However, I have not been faithful to him during my tour. I have had sex with several people over here, and if thats not complicated enough, I appear to be pregnant. I dont know what to tell my husband. I actually still kind of love him. Advice? Deployed and Pregnant DearDeployed: You need to make certain you are pregnant and that this is not a false alarm. Whether you are or not, you have some difficult decisions to make. While it wont be pleasant, you and your husband are due for an honest conversation upon your return. If you both still kind of love each other, forgiveness is possible, and couples have been known to get beyond this and have successful marriages. DearAbby: The rule that white pants can be worn only from Memorial Day to Labor Day needs to be amended. I love my white pants. They go with nearly everything, and I almost cry when they must be stored away for another nine months. Ridiculous! My proposal would be to extend the grace period so it begins on Easter Sunday and lasts until Halloween. How does that sound? Marilyn in San Marcos, Calif. DearMarilyn: You will be delighted to know that according to Emily Posts Etiquette, 18th Edition, that old rule about wearing white no longer applies. Whats important isnt the color, but the weight of the fabric. Here in Southern California, summer can start late and continue through October. Lightweight fabrics such as cotton and linen are acceptable during hot weather, and when the temperature drops, winter whites in wool, corduroy, silk and satin are common, although usually in off-white shades rather than a stark one.
