Pegg sentenced Carlson to a 30day jail sentence, however the jail time was suspended. Carlson was also sentenced to 18 months of probation and will have to pay fines and court costs totaling approximately $25,000. Carlson was acquitted in late August of a felony BUI manslaughter charge. He was on trial in 2010 the death of his wife Julie, who died when the boat Carlson was operating hit a channel marker near Sebastian in Indian River County. Augusts trial proved to be an emotional one for Carlson and Julies family members. Through the weeklong trial, Carlson was surrounded b y family and supporters.

Noahs Fall Festival, held on Avon Parks annual official trick-or-treat day, wont take place this weekend and has been postponed until next year, said coordinator Jay Whipkey. We hated to cancel because it would have been our 19th year, Whipkey said. We wanted to give it your full attention and couldnt because we had a death in the family. "Lord willing, well be back bigger and better next year," Whipkey said. He said 4,000 people came through the gates in a four-hour span last year and between 200-300 volunteers cooked 3,000 hot-dogs and popped heaps of popcorn. Kids enjoyed bounce houses and played carnival games for candy. Whipkey said the Avon Park Fire Department typically gets involved giving safety demonstrations. Whipkey said he and others organize the event under the nonprofit group Morningstar of Highlands County.

N ot only did the play capture t he Best Show honors, H arriman also won the Zenon f or Best Director. Harriman said, My first s how was Peter Pan12 years a go, Harriman said. He likes the live theater b ecause it is a chance to get away from his job as a substance abuse councilor. It is fun, not like sitting at home and watching TV, he said. People dont know we are here, but tickets to the live theater are cheaper than dinner and a movie. The Zenon Award is shaped like a pyramid of glass and is the highest award for talent at HLT. It is sponsored by the Zenon & Marilyn Hansen Foundation. The show started with a production number from the nominees called Hello from The Book Of Mormon. Steve McDaniel, who was the host for the evening, gave the formal introduction and introduced Pete Pollard, who sang Night and Day from Gay Divorcee. Pollard mentioned that there were about 500 ballots sent out for the awards and 250 were returned. This reversed a trend, according to Pollard, and shows that the plays were popular this year. All of the ballots were tabulated by CliftonLarsonAllen, LLP. Harriman won Best Set Design for Sex Please Were Sixty. Best Stage Manager went to Danny Wilson for Annie. Best Performance by an Actress In ASupporting Role went to Ellen Lemos as Miss Hannigan in Annie.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR email@example.comSEBRING Homecoming is serious business to high schoolers. And Tuesdays homecoming court election at Sebring High School got serious treatment as a result, right down to the I Voted stickers. Unlike elections in previous years, this school years homecoming election was executed and assisted by the Highlands County Supervisor of Elections office. Elections office volunteer Roy Wright, who has worked with the office since 2008, said that this is the first time the school has ever done an election in this manner. The school contacted (Supervisor of Elections) Mrs. (Penny) Ogg about a month ago. She had come to the school earlier this year for voter outreach and civic outreach to some of the government classes. Acouple of the instructors spoke to her about getting our help this year because there are so many students, Wright said. Ahandful of electronic ballot scanners were set up on tables in the rear of the SHSs Smith Center. Five elections office volunteers oversaw the ballot reading throughout the morning. We have programmed the election. After the ballots are all cast we tabulate each machine and well give the results to the school. Our part is done then. We wont have anything to do with how they give out the results, said Wright.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Have y ou ever wondered how long g opher tortoises lives? Or h ow many burrows they h ave? Are you curious about t he many ways they interact w ith other tortoises and anim als? On Sunday, Archbold B iological Station launches i ts Fall 2013 Series of Events a nd Tours with Gopher T ortoises: Long-lived L andlords of the Florida S crub. During this two-part e vent, Dr. Betsie Rothermel w ill answer some common a nd not-so-common questions a bout tortoises. I think people may be surp rised to learn just how comp lex the life of a Gopher T ortoise can be, Rothermel s aid, and just how many s crub animals depend on tort oise burrows. Rothermel is the director o f the Herpetology and R estoration Ecology P rograms at Archbold B iological Station and has b een conducting research on t ortoises, salamanders and f rogs for the past 15 years. S he uses a variety of techniques to study tortoises, including radio-tracking and motion sensor cameras to record activities of tortoises in and around their burrows. Previous researchers at Archbold began marking and following individual tortoises in 1967, making Archbold the site of the longest running tortoise population study in the southeastern United States. Rothermel still encounters some of the earliest-marked tortoises when gathering data in the scrub. Samanatha Dean, a recent graduate of Cornell University and intern in Rothermels lab, said, Working with the gopher tortoise project has really given me a new respect for this reptile and turtles in general. Its so exciting to recapture adult tortoises that are over 50 years old, especially knowing the incredible odds they survived to reach that age. Burrow Explorers, the family activity portion of the event, begins at 12:45 p.m. Sunday at Archbolds Frances Archbold Hufty Learning Center. At 2 p.m. in the Learning Center East Meeting Room at Archbold Biological Station, Rothermel will give a 45-minute presentation geared for ages 12 and up, based on her fascinating research. Archbold Biological Station is open to the public, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is about eight miles south of Lake Placid. The entrance is 1.8 miles south of State Road 70 on Old State Road 8.

We mention this to remind p eople that Americans can c omplain only so much a bout government because w e are such a vital compon ent in our democratic syst em. It is our job, after all, to h ire and fire the politicians w ho lead us. Of course, this means d oing something like regi stering to vote and actually c asting a ballot. Sadly, the residents within A von Park city limits are not f amous for participating in t heir municipal elections. A ccording to the Supervisor o f Elections, in 2007 only 17 p ercent of eligible voters w ent to the polls to choose a m ayor and city councilor. In hard numbers that m eans fewer than 800 voters out of more than 4,400 c ared enough to go do their j ob. It was worse when just city council seats were at stake in 2009 only 14.6 percent of eligible voters went to the polls, 653 voters out of 4,471. We hope Avon Park citizens do better this year, especially as there are real differences of opinion and goals between the candidates and the new city charter is up for approval. This editorial is not about endorsing any individual or plan of action, nor is it about administrative changes in the city or anyone on city staff. It is about political power, however, and what happens when not enough people get involved we get the kind of government we deserve. If unsuccessful policies dont change or officials grow aloof and distant, it is usually because leaders who receive no feedback, especially at election time, feel no obligation to anyone else. They often mistake indifference for approval; a lack of response for acceptance of the status quo. We voters have the power to change all that large turnouts for elections keep politicians focused and paying attention. It is already too late to register to vote in Avon Parks election, but there is plenty of time to ask questions and vote. As of Oct. 7, the last day of voter registration, there were 4,432 eligible voters inside city limits. We hope the poll numbers will be in the thousands. Remember you will be counted, and judgments will be made about your participation, especially on those of you who complain later after doing nothing now. It is easy to vote. Avon Park is small and compact. The polls arent crowded and are open all day. If you really are grateful to live in America, if you really care about the City of Charm, youll vote Nov. 5, if not before.

The election itself takes place two w eeks later on Nov. 5. Rebecca was stunned when she opened her mail last week. Her insurance carrier, Highmark BCBS, said her health insurance premium would rise 40 percent this year and her policy would be canceled on Dec. 1, 2014. She had purchased t he policy in 2009, after her husband h ad passed away from lupus, which h ed contracted 10 years before. His e mployers insurance covered virtually a ll of the $1.1 million cost of his care d uring the last 66 days of his life. With three children to raise, Rebecca k new how important it was to have g ood coverage. Her husbands company c overed her for three months after he d ied. That gave her time to buy her o wn coverage with Highmark t hough paying the $400 monthly premiu m would not be easy. She worked two or three jobs to m ake ends meet jobs that allowed h er to be home when her kids got home f rom school. She was thankful to r eceive $1,300 a month in widows b enefits from Social Security, which h er husband had paid into for years ( she will soon lose these benefits when h er youngest turns 16). Her combined income is $47,000 a y ear. By scrimping and saving, she has b een able to pay her mortgage and i nsurance, feed her kids and get the o ldest two through college (thanks to s everal loans she is repaying). So, she was stunned when she found o ut what her new insurance policy w ould cost. The Highmark representative e xplained that her new policy had to m eet all the requirements of the A ffordable Care Act (ObamaCare). It w ould have to cover things she does n ot want or need such as mental h ealth problems, substance abuse and m aternity care. She asked the representative to help h er choose a policy similar to what she h ad. The closest match he could find w as a comprehensive PPO policy. Her deductible would go from $ 1,200 to $1,500 per person, but her f amily deductible would increase from $ 2,400 to $5,000. Her 90-percent copay would rise to 8 0 percent. Instead of being responsible f or only 10 percent of her medical bills, a fter the deductible is met, she would b e responsible for 20 percent. Her maxi mum out-of-pocket costs would soar f rom $2,000, after deductibles, to $ 12,000. Her premium would go from $400 to $ 884 per month an increase of a lmost $6,000 per year. If she or one of her children were to get ill, as her husband did, her out-ofpocket costs would run about $24,000 a year. Surely there are subsides for people in Rebeccas position? Not in her case. If her three children were younger, she would be eligible for a $6,000 tax credit. But her two oldest kids have just entered the workforce and their combined income disqualifies them. If she covers just herself and her youngest child, her $47,000 income is still too high to qualify for subsidies. She is too proud to accept subsidies in any event. She doesnt want taxpayers picking up the tab for her coverage. In fact, ObamaCare subsidies will cost taxpayers $1.9 trillion over the next decade. Her only solution is to find a fulltime job that provides benefits if she can find an employer that offers them. Employers, too, are seeing their premiums soar. Virtually everyone agrees our country needs to help the uninsured and those with pre-existing conditions get coverage and care. However, ObamaCare is essentially forcing those who buy their own insurance to pay double or triple costs to cover those without insurance or who have pre-existing conditions and a good many of these middle-class people will not qualify for subsidies. The shame here is that there are creative ways for the government to solve the problem by establishing guidelines while unleashing market forces. This is demonstrated by Medicare Part D, a successful entitlement program that provides drugs to the elderly poor. Under Part D, seniors are free to choose among a variety of benefits, costs and plans offered by private insurers. According to the Heartland Institute, Medicare trustees estimated a 2013 average monthly cost of $61 the actual costs are HALF that. In any event, lots of people are getting sticker shock as they learn how much their premiums will increase. And despite the presidents promises, many people will not get to keep their current coverage. Just ask Rebecca. Tom Purcell is a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review humor columnist and is nationally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons Inc. Send comments to Tom at Purcell@caglecartoons.com/. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Does Obamacare cover sticker shock? Students are protesting standardized testing. Parents are refusing to let schools give their kids the tests. Teachers are refusing to administer the tests. School boards are begging for relief from testing mandates. Thats all nice, say the dwindling number of defenders of linking accountability to standardized testing, but if we got rid of tests what would you replace them with? Its a fair question, and its one that a group of 23 rebellious school districts are determined to answer. If they succeedand its a big ifthen American schoolchildren might enjoy an education system judged by something other than a bubble test. Last week, the Texas High Performance Schools Consortium chose to go ahead with plans to create a new accountability system that doesnt depend on standardized tests despite opposition from Gov. Rick Perry. The move by the Consortium to circumvent Perry offers hope to those who see progress stymied by politicians who equate standardized tests with high standards. The irony is that Perry and the Texas legislature created the Consortium in the first place to build a next-generation accountability model that utilized technology. Perry might have assumed they would study the problem to death, but the school districts came up with some innovative ideas. In College Station, high school science and math students could go online to watch lessons from Khan Academy and iTunes U specifically focused on complementing their classroom work. In an Austin suburban school, students taking upper division math classes found that using iPads increased collaboration on homework. In South Texas, students used technology to access coursework at a nearby college and earn dual credit. By and large, testing got in the way of these school districts, sucking up time they wanted to spend on these creative classroom ideas. When the Consortium reported back to the legislature, the eagerness of the districts to reform the testing model was obvious. They asked to dial testing in elementary and middle school way back, to use the SAT and ACTtests in high school to streamline college readiness standards, and to get an independent audit of how well the schools were doing. Best of all for the students who, allegedly, are the consumers of education the better they did on tests, the fewer tests they would have to take. Abill encompassing the Consortiums fin dings emphasized technology, innovation, flexibility college-readiness and in-depth teaching. The legislature passed the bill without a dissenting vote. It was exactly what Perry said he wanted when he created the Consortium. So he vetoed it. Flexibility and innovation are important, but we will not compromise academic rigor or student outcomes, wrote Perry in his veto message. Last week, the Consortium decided to move ahead despite veto, drawing praise from Rep. Bennett Ratliff, the Republican sponsor of the vetoed bill. I think this is clear evidence that schools that are focused on education and learning dont believe that our current testing progra m is the best solution to mo ve forward into the 21st century, said Ratliff. But trying to develop a new accountability system while simultaneously following the current one makes success less likely. In a 2012 update, the Consortium pleaded that spacemust be provided for new possibilities to emerge, because it is impossible to run alternative or parallel systems in conjunction with the current system. Despite the difficulty in chasing two tails, Dawson Orr, Consortium co-chair and superintendent of Highland Park ISD, pledges to press on to find an accountability system that actually measures what goes on in schools. You know, theres just an awful lot of authentic work that goes on in classrooms that represents student learning that state and federal bureaucracies don t know how to handle because they need the ease and convenience of a multiple choice test, Orr said Another Texas leader, the late Speaker Sam Rayburn, once said, A jackass can kick a barn down, but it takes a carpenter to build one. There are a lot of folks trying to get rid of high-stakes testingand a lot of merit in doing sobut thanks to 2 3 gutsy school districts, we now have some carpenters looking for an accountability system that makes sense.

By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING In March of t his year, race fans got a look a t a stylized mosaic mural by l ocal artist James R. Hahn, c reated as a tribute to the f amous 12 Hours of Sebring. It is a collaborative work b etween Hahn and the Italian m osaic giant Trend-Group. T itled Trend at the Track, t he span sits across from the f amous Turn 10 at the S ebring International R aceway. As constructed, the 11-foot t all, 252-foot long work on t he front wall of the E-Stone c ompany represents one of t he largest mosaic works in t he state of Florida. The tiles u sed in the rendering came f rom the E-Stone company. Now, Hahn has announced h e plans to finish the project w ith two more panels, featuri ng a local racing effort as w ell as one of the stalwarts o f the 12 Hours. The S ebring-based Sick Sideways t eam, which competes in the M azda Playboy Cup, will be f eatured in the new section, a long with successful protot ype entrants Level 5 Racing. This second section we w ill use paint in the way we n ormally do that will meld a nd match the first phase of t he project, Hahn said. It w ill be a continuation of the s cene we have already put u p. The two scenes will be j oined by a giant checkered f lag motif, tying them togethe r. The addition of the two r emaining walls will bring t he sprawling artistic endeavor to a total length of 312 feet. The last two sections, however, will not be done as a mural, but will be a painting designed to match the current rendering. It really is a big picture mural that will provide a cohesive look, he said. From the start we actually had considered different ways of doing the project. Leading the pack will be a pair of cars from Level 5 Racing. Founded by Scott Tucker, the team competes both in the American LeMans Series and Grand American Road Racing Series. Those two bodies have now combined and will be the United Sports Car Racing series which will make its debut at Sebring in March of next year. The team has campaigned a pair of HPD ARX-prototypes this season. They took top honors for the second straight year this past March at the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida. We have a great relationship with those folks, we had the opportunity to visit their car lab and it was just spectacular, Hahn said. Also depicted on the mural will be the Sick Sideways team. That is a local effort spearheaded by Sebring driver John Dean II in the Playboy Cup series. Dean has brought his Projections Research Mazda to several of Hahns live painting events as part of their relationship. Our plan is to have it completed in time for the 2014 Sebring race event, Hahn said. In addition to the race cars on the mural, the rendering will include another familiar sight the Aeromed II air ambulance. The helicopter will be taking off from the helipad in the background, Hahn said. Now the only thing holding up the project, is waiting for the weather to cooperate and provide a number of dry days so that work can begin. First will be a coat of masonry primer so Hahn then can commence with the artwork proper. We want this to be a realistic mural, not one with dripping paint, he said. Hahn is best known locally for his mural honoring Sebrings Centennial while Trend does work worldwide, with subsidiaries in numerous countries. Trend Group is well known for their design collaborations with famous names like Gucci, Kusama, and others. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, October 23, 2013 Page A7 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; rhr top of ad stack; 0 0 0 3 2 6 8 4 PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 3.639"; 16"; Black plus three; process, 103401-publix liquors; 0 0 0 3 2 7 6 6 ORANGE BLOSSOM TOURS; 3.639"; 4"; Black plus three; process, main rhr top salvidor; 0 0 0 3 3 0 5 6 Special to the News-SunSEBRING Highlands R egional Medical Centers f irst Bras for a Cause cert ainly showed how passiona te Highlands County is a bout ending breast cancer, a s well as how creative the c ounty is.

HLT presents annual Zenon Awards Avon Park Chamber of Commerce and set for the same location: The Avon Park Community Center, 310 W. Main St. Dora Smith, president of Highlands LULAC, said she first came up with the idea toward the end of September after a conversation with Aljoe Hinson, president of Highlands NAACP. So she called the candidates, and gave them the date, time and location. They all said great, so I moved forward and they all went along with it, Smith said. However, Tina Warner, Greg Warners wife and campaign manager, said they had heard about a date approximately a month ago, but not a time and place. By the time they had heard Friday from forum organizers, her husband already had a meeting scheduled out of town. Remick said in an email Tuesday morning that in addition to learning about it late, he had also confused Tuesdays forum with the chambers forum on Oct. 15. As a result, he had a schedule conflict with the York Rite and DeMolay Youth Organization meeting. Smith said she had checked with him last Friday and it seemed a go, but when she checked with him on Saturday, he said he would not be going because the discussion would be two against one. Smith said its possible that if she had contacted them earlier, they might have been able to hold the date. I take full responsibility for that, she said. Still, she said that if she failed at communications, she wishes candidates they would have communicated with her. Its almost like a slap in the face to us, Smith said. As of Monday, they still expected to have Sutherland and Mayor Sharon Schuler available to take questions and explain their platforms. Sutherland said he had blocked off that evening when he was first told abou t it at least two weeks ago. All I can tell you is Im going to be there, Sutherland said Tuesday pri or to the forum. Schuler said everyone was checked for dates before the chamber event. When she got the call, everyone was called and told everyone was good with the date, she said. If there are conflicts its not because they werent aware of it at the early stage, Schuler said. Im surprised that there are conflicts. While Remick apologized for missing the forum, he said he planned to visit the Southside community barbe cue from 11 a.m. until noon Saturday and meet with community members there. Tina Warner said Greg Warner also planned to atten d the barbecue, scheduled to take place in the Triangle Park traffic island bordered by Tulane Drive and South Verona Avenue in the Southside neighborhood.

The incident was very u nfortunate, said Shoop. Its had a great affect on J effs life and the lives of everyone involved. I think that it was truly an accident, it was not intentional. And I think that what the judge handed out was a fair sentencing. Shoop stated that Judge Pegg sentenced Carlson to two probation periods, one lasting six months the other lasting 12 months. The probation periods given out to Carlson will run concurrently the judge stated. It will end up being really closer to a 12-month period, Shoop said. Continued from A1 Carlson sentenced to probation, will pay $25K in fines, costs TALLAHASSE (AP) At least seven inmates in Florida have used forged documents in attempts to escape from prison, including two killers who were mistakenly freed because of the paperwork, authorities said Tuesday. Police said they were looking at several suspects in the investigation of the escape of Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker, but so far they have made no arrests. Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey said the prisoners were not cooperating. In law enforcement terms, theyve lawyered up, Bailey said. But we will find the details of what led to these escapes without their help, but should they choose to cooperate, we will have the answers that we need. Jenkins and Walker were let out of a Panhandle prison on Sept. 27 and Oct. 8, respectively, because of fake paperwork. Several suspects in inmate escapes

By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgFrom Sierra Weavers t rip to Hawaii for a voll eyball camp, and various a rea Dixie teamstraveli ng and triumphing in vari ous parts of the country, t o Corbin Hoffners s tandout season as a Cubs m inor leaguer in Boise, I d., to Kendall Griffins g olfing trip to China this p ast summer Highlands C ounty has seen many of i tsyoungsters athletic a bility take them on memo rable trips in recent y ears. Courtney Delaney will s oon be adding her name t o that list as part of the T eam America softball p rogram. The Lake Placid junior w as spotted by long-time T wilight Twisters head c oach Dianna McKinney t his past summer at a coll ege showcase tournament a nd added to the roster of T eam America. And while the ability l evel of this 18-Under s quad is obvious they l ost in a tournament to S eminole State College, w hich went to the Junior C ollege World Series the season before, by just a 53 score the aim of the team isnt all about winning and losing. Its about educating them and making them versatile players, McKinney said. Too often a high school or travel coach will pigeonhole a player as only being a shortstop, or only a pitcher, only a catcher. All our girls play multiple positions and they learn to play them all well. Agirl that can play multiple positions will always get a better scholarship to play in college than a one-position player. McKinney has the track By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comThe Blue Streak boys c ross country team seems to b e peaking, and it is at the m ost opportune time. Saturday, Oct. 19, Sebring h osted a five-team meet at t he South Florida State C ollege campus in Avon P ark and topped the field w hich included perhaps a k ey opponent theyll soon be f acing. The Streaks didnt take e ither of the top two individu al finishes, but showed t heir strength in numbers as t hey took third, fourth and f ifth for crucial, low numb ers adding to their team t otal. Leading the way was Eric F oster, who took third with a t ime of 16:38, followed by D amian Foster in fourth at 1 7:27 and Malcom Holdman i n fifth at 17:42. The next two finishes w ere also tightly packed for S ebring, with Wesley K oning taking 11th in 18:18 a nd Andrew Rivera 13th in 1 8:20 for a team-winning t otal score of 36. This didnt even include t he finishes of Tim Koning ( 20th, 18:47) and Lucas High (22nd, 19:06). Akey element in the finishes, aside from them being grouped so closely, is that each and every Sebring runner came in with personal record times. Considering they are in apparent peak condition, the timing couldnt be better as their next meet is Fridays District 8-3Ameet. Not to mention that Sebring is hosting the event, on the same course at SFSC. The guys are very confident after all PRd, head coach Jayson Bass said. And they beat Liberty High School, which was seeded ahead of us in the district. With how he has seen his team progress throughout the season to reach this stage in this fashion, Basss hopes are certainly high for Fridays meet. Im looking at everyone setting PRs Friday and running away with the district title, he said. And for Eric Foster to becoming the individual district champ. The meet gets underway Friday at SFSC with the girls taking off at 10 a.m. and the boys following with their race approximately 30 minutes later.

By NOAH TRISTER Associated PressDETROIT Jim Leyland is stepping down as manager of the Detroit Tigers after eight seasons that included three division titles and two trips to the World Series. Leyland announced his departure Monday, two days after the Tigers were eliminated from the AL championship series by Boston in six games. He said he planned to remain with the organization in some capacity. Im going to be 69 years old, he said at a news conference. Im not ashamed of that. Im proud of it. The fuels getting a little low. Leyland has been working under one-year contracts the last couple years, saying he was content to wait until after the season to address his status. He was a bit reflective late this season, mentioning to reporters that he had already managed the Tigers longer than he had expected they would keep him but he also said in September that he still loved the atmosphere, the competition and his team. Leyland said hed decided earlier in September that he wouldnt be back as manager. On Sept. 7 in Kansas City, after we shellacked the Royals Friday night, I asked (general manager Dave Dombrowski) if I could meet him for coffee in the morning, Leyland said. The conversation basically went like this: I said, Dave, I dont know what your plans were fo r next year.He said, Wel l, youre my manager.I said, Well, Im not goin g to be the manager. Detroits players foun d out about Leylands departure after Saturday nights game in Boston. Youve got your head down, you lost and the seasons over, and then Jim dropped that bomb o n us, outfielder Torii Hunter said. I just had a feeling that it could have been his last year. All year, he was kind of emo tional, and I just felt it. Leyland was 700-597 with the Tigers. He led them to the World Series immediatel y after taking over in 2006 losing to St. Louis in fiv e games. The Tigers went to the World Series again in 2012 but were swept by San Francisco. This years team had a chance to make it back, but Detroit couldnt take advantage of its standou t starting pitching against the Red Sox. This one hurt bad, because I thought we let one get away. We did it collectively, theres no one culprit, Leyland said. This is one thats going to stick with me. When Leyland arrived at the Tigerstraining Leyland steps down as Tigers manager See LEYLAND, B4 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun files Courtney Delaney has seen her softball talents take her from Lake Placid to Team America, which will give her the opportunity to play in Italy next summer.

Cross Country Streaks in fine form By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Theres no q uestion that the city of C hicago was waiting, impat iently at times, to get D errick Rose back. And the same could likely b e said about the Bulls franc hise. They werent alone. The NBAwas waiting as w ell. When Roses comeback c ommences for real on openi ng night in Miami Tuesday a gainst the two-time defendi ng champion Heat, theres n o question the league will b e savoring the return of one o f its biggest sources of star p ower. Rose sells tons of jerseys, s ells tons of tickets, gets m ore people watching on tele vision and almost certainly w ill raise the quality of play in the Eastern Conference. Sure, its better for opponents when he spends an entire season in suits. For the game, its better when hes back on the floor. Obviously, hes one of our better players in the league, said Heat All-Star guard Dwyane Wade, a native of Chicago. You miss a guy as dynamic as that. The league as a whole missed him.. So Im sure for the city of Chicago, as hes a guy who really believes in and loves the city, Im sure theyre ecstatic. Having him back will bring a different kind of energy. Rose was the NBAs MVP in 2011, and has played in just 40 of the Bulls166 games since because of a number of injuries the most serious of them being a torn-up left knee suffered in Chicagos first playoff game in 2012. Some suggested that because of his athleticism and commitment to rehabilitation, he would only miss a few months. By the time he returned to the court earlier in this preseason, more than 17 months had passed without Rose in uniform. By the time Rose plays in a game for real, it will be 18 months and 1 day since his knee gave way and rendered him to endless questions about why he could be practicing but not playing. Some of his NBAcolleagues understood that logic. I thought it was very smart of him not to rush back, Cleveland guard Jarrett Jack said. Everybody kept thinking that just because it was an injury that happened last year that he should come back in the regular season. They didnt take into consideration that it happened so late in April and he would be walking a slippery slope to force himself back and then to try and be himself. Thats the thing that people forget, Jack continued. You dont want to come back and just be half of yourself. You want to come back and be at full strength. So Rose waited. The Bulls did better than many people expected without him, winning 45 regularseason games a year ago, ousting Brooklyn in the first round and taking Game 1 of a second-round series against Miami before falling in five games.

r ecord to know of which she s peaks, as she has placed 1 38 former players in coll eges on softball scholars hips. Which is one of the benef its Delaney is certainly a ware of. Im so grateful to have t his opportunity to work on m y game, because there is p lenty of room for improvem ent, she said. And this is j ust the beginning. I can a lready see the collge opport unities Ill have to choose f rom, so long as I keep w orking hard and improvi ng. Those are the doors this a ssociation with the team is o pening up closer to home, w ith the big opportunity on t he horizon next summer to a f ar more distant place I taly. As part of the Team A merica program that serves a s ambassadors of the sport, t eams are sent abroad annua lly to raise awareness to the rest of the world. Softball has been taken out of the Olympics, at least through the 2016 Games, and if it is to be added back, the more countries involved, the better chance it has. After her spring season with the Lady Dragons, Delaney will join the team, made up of girls from all over the country, for practice time, with a few tournaments mixed in, before heading to Italy in early July. There, they will tour three cities, including Rome and Venice, and playing double headers in each. Theyll have chefs there, with tents where the teams will eat together between games, McKinney said. Then we mix up the teams for the second game. Then the girls will go sight seeing in each city and learn about the history, the culture. It is an educational opportunity. Of course, money will need to be raised to offset the cost of the trip, which Delaney and the team will be doing through various fundraisers in the coming months. Its just amazing, and Ive never even been on a plane, Delaney said. Its a bit overwhelming to think about, but Im very excited. I couldnt have done any of this without my coaches and my dad. I couldnt be more thankful for all of this. And the off-the-court side o f Rose seemed to flourish. He had the top-selling N BAjersey in China, Latin A merica and Europe last seas on. His jersey remains one of t he most prominent and p opular at the NBAStore i n New York. All that came with the m ajority of Roses public disp lays of basketball being s hooting and dribbling work o n the floor before games, o ften working himself into a f ull sweat while his teamm ates were in the locker r oom making final preparat ions before starting w armups. I think hes coming back s tronger than ever, Atlanta f orward Al Horford said. Just from what Ive been h earing, hes anxious. He h asnt played in a year so h es going to be going after p eople. Thats been evident in this p reseason. If someone with an MVP a ward on his resume needed a breakout preseason game, R ose got it last week against I ndiana. He was vintage against one o f Chicagos top rivals, with 3 2 points in just 31 minutes. Its definitely going to m ean a lot to have him b ack, Minnesota forward Kevin Love said. We obviously hope that when he plays the Timberwolves that he has an off game. He looks a lot stronger, he looks very confident and I think hes going to have a great year. He just looks really focused. Yep, hes back. AP Basketball Writer Jon Krawczynski and AP Sports Writers Tom Withers and Charles Odum contributed. c amp this year, it marked 50 s easons since he first s howed up there as an 18y ear-old prospect. His playing career never a mounted to much, but his a ccomplishments as a mana ger over more than two d ecades have been impress ive. He is 1,769-1,728 overall d uring stints with the Tigers, P ittsburgh Pirates, Florida M arlins and Colorado R ockies. He won the World Series i n 1997 with Florida. He has also been part of s ome of baseballs most m emorable games P ittsburghs loss in Game 7 o f the 1992 NLCS at A tlanta, Floridas victory o ver Cleveland in Game 7 of t he 1997 World Series and D etroits loss to Minnesota i n a one-game playoff for the A LCentral title in 2009. When he took over the T igers, they had gone 12 y ears without a winning seas on. Under Leyland, they finished under .500 only once. Whats gone on here has been unbelievable. Weve won a lot of games, weve had a lot of seats filled, Leyland said. I came here to make talent a team, and I think we did that. Detroit has become one of baseballs glamour teams of late, with stars like Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer helping the team win games and draw fans. The Tigers should be able to keep their core of players mostly together for next season, but now theyll need to find a new manager to replace Leyland, who always earned high marks for his ability to keep his veteran team focused. I truly think this is going to be a very good team next year, Leyland said. This job entails a lot more than people think.

LAKE PLACID Digging i n for a blast from the past, w e came across a few memb ers of the Lake Country Y acht Club who reminisced a bout their years in existence r ight here in Placid Lakes. T he group formed around 1 985 with 35-40 members, s ome of whom flew in from O hio in private planes, othe rs the conventional Snowbird way. They were a trailored boat organizat ion, with some fancy craft a nd made their home lake, L ake Placid, the main playg round. When you hear Yacht Club, your thoughts i mmediately go to the East o r West Coast where the big m arinas with big sailboats a nd huge yachts keep comp any with a big club restaur ant right on the water. This feisty group had the t ime of their lives going f rom lake to lake, and river t o river trailoring their boats. T hey ventured to Daytona, S arasota, St. Augustine, the C aloosahatchee River. They w ould all gather at a pred etermined restaurant after t heir jaunt. As far as we can d etermine, there were at l east two commodores at t he helm of the group at diff erent times.

On the next sunny day, p erhaps youll consider taki ng a nice long walkto fora ge for some wild fall edib les. There are plenty of nutrit ious foods just waiting to be p lucked fromtrees or from t he ground in the forest or a n earby meadow. Foraging is a very satisfyi ng (and fun) activity. Plus y ou get toenjoy the fruits of y our labor (pun intended) w hen you return home. The following are some f oods you might find in the w ild in the fall ofthe year: Mushrooms. You can f ind edible mushrooms all o ver the world. T heresprobably at least one v ariety growing in your own b ack yard right now.Do s ome research to find out w hich of the varieties y oucan safely eat. Morels a nd chanterelles are my f avorite wild varietiesof m ushroom. Cranberries. Depending o n where you live, you may b e lucky enough tofind wild c ranberries. Some grow on s hrubs and bear fruit t hroughoutthe fall, and othe rs grow on the ground in b oggy, marshy woodland. Apples. The end of the s eason is just about here but y ou can stillfind some later v arieties of apple in most p arts of North A merica.Apple trees growi ng in the wild are usually o rganic, so you might f indsome bugs, but you?ll k now there arent any chemi cals lurking aroundon the skin of the fruit. Rosehips. Wild rosehips are at their best right about now and theyreeasy to spot with the leaves falling from the rose bushes. Rosehipstaste best when theyre harvested after the first frost. They are notvery good eaten raw, but delicious when cooked, strained, and mixedwith honey to create a nutritious fruit syrup. Rosehips syrup is yummyon pancakes or in a festive cocktail. Walnuts. If you see a tree bearing tennis-ball sized fruit on it, youmight be looking at a walnut tree. If youre lucky enough to have oneof these trees nearby, go ahead and collect some of those nuts. Afterthe fruit is dried, crack open the shell and enjoy the nut inside! Ifyou happen to have access to a walnut tree, putting a handful of ripenuts in small burlap sacks with some fresh clementines would make abeautiful holiday gift for friends and neighbors. Pawpaw. You might not find pawpaw fruits in the grocery stores becausethey are just starting to be commercialized. Pawpaw fruit tastes a bitlike mango, banana and melon all wrapped up into one wild fruit. Onthe tree, pawpaw looks like clumps of mangos growing together. Thoughpawpaw trees are difficult to find, the fruit reward will be worth thesearch. Prickly Pear. If you happen to find a cactus with pink fruits growingon top, you may have encountered a prickly pear. I only recommendpicking these if you have some sort of tongs or are wearing a pair ofgloves. When you find a perfectly ripe prickly pear it will taste likea combination between watermelon and bubblegum. Wild grapes. You can find wild grapes growing just about everywhere.Wild grapes make wonderfully healthy juice, jelly or even wine. Do you forage for food?

This is the fourth year that t he commissioners have set a side a week to pay tribute to f amilies. Impetus for the p roclamation came from B ette Prine, founder and c hair of Highlands County W eek of the Family. In todays busy, technol ogical world filled with so m any outside distractions, its e asy for family members to b e pulled in many different d irections. We dont want f amilies to lose sight of the i mportance of spending quali ty time together, Prine said. This year, Week of the F amily is advocating that f amilies choose at least one n ight a week when all family m embers can be home doing t hings together. Besides eati ng a meal together, activities m ight include preparing the m eal and, after dinner, playi ng a game, watching a m ovie, listening to music or w orking on a family or comm unity project. Keep conversations posit ive, look for the good in one a nother, compliment one a nother, and use the time to c onnect spiritually and instill f amily and community values a nd responsibilities, Prine s aid. This year, as in years past, H ighlands County Week of t he Family also will sponsor a Celebration of the Family, a s pecial event which will take p lace on Saturday, Nov. 16, f rom 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the B ert J.

By CARLAKAPPMEYERSHERWIN Special to the News-SunThe open road is quint essential to the American E xperience. Long celebrated i n American culture, it is i ndelibly stamped in the A merican psyche and s prings forth from the A merican landscape. One of the most triu mphant and uplifting road s tories is the tale of the H ighwaymen, a group of y oung, African-American a rtists from Fort Pierce who p ainted stylized picture postc ard landscapes influenced b y preeminent landscape a rtist A. E. (Bean) Backus. Although the Highwaymen h ave achieved legendary stat us, they remain unknown to m any people. When art acquisition agent J im Fitch began researching t he paintings in the mid 1 990s, he referred to these l argely self-taught artists as highwaymen because they t raveled Florida highways a nd back roads, selling p aintings from the trunks of t heir cars. Gary Monroe, author of t he seminal book The H ighwaymen: Floridas A frican-American L andscape Painters, is the f eatured guest speaker at the 28th Annual Civilian Conservation Corps Festival, which is being held at Highlands Hammock State Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9. Monroe will present The Highwaymen: Floridas African-American Landscape Painters at 1 p.m. in the parks Recreation Hall. The program is sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council with funding from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs. Highwaymen artists Mary Ann Carroll, Al Black, Kelvin Hair and others will be exhibiting and selling paintings. Lisa Stone of Lisa Stone Arts, who promotes contemporary southern artists, will be exhibiting and selling vintage Highwaymen works. The lecture is free of charge. Park entry fee is $6 per vehicle (up to eight people). In his book, Monroe indentifies 26 painters as first-generation Highwaymen. They include Harold Newton, who was already selling door to door and Alfred Hair, a protg of Backus, who became the catalyst for the group. Hair, equally deft with brush and palette knife, painted quickly and intuitively. Driven to make money, he devised a system of mass production by working on multiple boards. Super salesman Al Black and others would then stack them in the trunks before the paint had dried, hit the road and pitch them to hotels, banks, restaurants, lawyers and medical professionals, homeowners, and the occasional tourist. This loosely affiliated group overcame enormous social and economic obstacles of a then highly segregated Jim Crow South. By perfecting techniques to turn out paintings quickly and sell them outside of traditional art galleries, they carved out a unique niche, earning a living and escaping the drudgery of labor in Fort Pierces orange groves and packing houses. Thousands of paintings were sold during the 1950s, 1960s, and the early 1970s. It has been estimated that 100,000 to 200,000 paintings were created. With the passing of time and changing tastes, their works were removed and consigned to attics, closets, thrift stores, garages and yard sales. The painters fell into obscurity and were largely unknown until 1994, when Fitch wrote about them. Agreat deal of publicity followed. Mr. Monroes book spawned great interest. Articles appeared in the New York Times and other papers. Radio broadcasts and documentaries were produced. Avid art collectors and antique dealers uncovered lost paintings and sought out the artists, who had now re-emerged as the Highwaymen. Paintings which originally sold for $25 to $50, now sold for several hundred to several thousand dollars. Through his lectures and books Gary Monroe has taken the Highwaymen tale on the road and works to ensure their story is known. He successfully nominated the Highwaymen to the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 2004. Monroes fourth book on Mary Ann Carroll, the only woman in the group, is now at University Press of Florida. Highwaymen paintings are characterized by intense, vibrant color, red-orange sunsets and soft pastel dawns, verdant greens, stormy skies, solitary pines, spiraling clouds, breaking waves, wind-swept beaches, bending palms, moss-covered oaks and cypress trees, bright tropical foliage, and rivers, sloughs, and inlets reflecting silvery moonligh t.

This is one of my favorite phrases. The word rain check, according to the urban dictionary, originally was a baseball term used in the 1880s entitling spectators future admission to a baseball game that was postponed or rained out. In the 1900s it became widely known for tickets of any nature, and then more recently for products that were out of stock. Getting a rain check on a sale item is another way to save money for your family. One of the letters I get the most is on stores not having enough stock because of couponers. But in reality it is not always because someone has cleared the shelf of a good deal. Many times it is a warehouse issue or low stock. Arain check is essentially a store coupon used to purchase a sale item when it is out of stock. Example: Your plan is to buy the specially priced 12-pack of water for the $1 sale price, but they are out of stock. Visit the Customer Service counter and ask for a rain check on that item. Next time you are shopping, check to see if they are stocked again. Here are a few tips on using rain checks effectively. Store policy purchasing limits: Check to see if the store has a purchase limit on your rain check item. Many stores will allow you to get 5-10 of that item on one rain check. Redeeming your rain check: It is a good idea to have your rain check items placed together when checking out at the store. Make sure and tell the cashier you have a rain check on the items before they are rung up. I typically try to do this at the end of the transaction. The reason is the cashier will have to price override the items. The cashier will also appreciate this very much. Store rain check expiration date: Some stores will have a rain check date of 3045 days from the date of issue. You will want to know the policy before redeeming. If the store does not have a policy on the rain checks then it should be honored any time, even a year later. Many national drug stores have a No expiration date policy on rain checks making the rain checks good anytime. I recently redeemed a rai n check at a national drug store from one year ago and the best part was I had a better coupon for the rain check item. Expired coupons and rain checks: It is a good practice to match your rain checks with coupons that are expiring soon with your rai n checks. Many stores will honor a store coupon that expires while waiting for the produ ct to be restocked, but not nec essarily on manufacturer coupons that are expired. Be mindful of the expiration dates on your coupons and match them with your rain check. Make sure to keep your rain check in a safe place. If it gets lost, the store has no way to honor the rain check and that is like losing money from your wallet. Happy shopping! I would love to hear you r questions and rain check st ories.

Rain check, please Savings Diva Tanya Senseney DearAbby: I am a happily married, heterosexual cross-dressing male. My wife understands and is supportive, and we have a wonderful life together. During the past week I have been caught unexpectedly by three different neighbors, and we are now in a state of panic. Were not sure what to do. If you have any suggestions, we are all ears. Caught in a Panic DearCaught: Because you would prefer to keep your cross-dressing private and this is October, you could tell your neighbors your female attire is what youll be wearing to a costume party. Its plausible. However, when someone is caught engaging in a private activity once thats an accident. When it happens three times in one week, I cant help but wonder whether on some level you would like to be more open about your lifestyle. If youre not aware, a resource, The Society for the Second Self (Tri-Ess International), offers support for heterosexual crossdressers as well as their spouses, partners and families. It has been in my column before and is the oldest and largest support organization for cross-dressers and those who love them. It promotes cross-dressing with dignity and decency, and treats spouses on an equal basis with their crossdressers. You can learn more about it at www.tri-ess.org. DearAbby: My best friends husband has been texting me. When he did it the first time, he had been drinking and my friend was asleep. Some of the things he said made me uncomfortable, but I also didnt like that he said his wife didnt know what he was doing. He stopped after I told him I was uncomfortable with it. Now he has started up again, offering support because my mother passed away recently. I am honestly not sure whether hes trying to be a good friend or if hes looking for something more, and that scares me. I dont want to start trouble between my friend and her husband, especially because they seem so happy together. Any ideas on how to handle this? Unsettled in Ohio DearUnsettled: Yes. Your friends husband may be a genuinely sympathetic person or he could be trying to take advantage of you while youre emotionally vulnerable. Listen to your gut. Tell him you appreciate his thoughtfulness, but you already have a support system in place and are receiving all of the emotional support you need. DearAbby: My 17-yearold cousin died in 2010, and Im still hurting. I have tried to get over it, but we were really close. When I walk the halls at school, I hear people say bad things about him. When I bring his name up, no one has anything good to say about him. It seems like they dont really care that he was my cousin and I loved him. How can I ask these people not to say bad things about him? Hurting in Indiana DearHurting: Because people forget that the young man who died was your relative, feel free to remind them. All you need to say is: You know, he was my cousin and we were close. I still miss him, and I wish you wouldnt say things like that about him when Im around. Losing a relative at any age is hard, but when the person is young, it can be even harder. Because you are still hurting and it has been three years, consider talking about this with a school counselor or joining a grief support group. Your clergyperson can help you locate one.

When it comes to the sides to g o with the turkey, who doesnt l ike sweet potatoes and roasted a corn squash? I really like the a corn squash because its full of f lavor and easy to prepare. I just c ut them in half, remove the s eeds, dust them with some cinn amon and brown sugar and roast t hem in the oven until they are s oft to the touch. For sauces, I like to make g iblet gravy, but I also like to m ake a rich turkey stock using t urkey bones and cooking them d own with celery, carrot, onion a nd water for about two hours, r educing the water level by half. T hen I strain it off and put that b ack into a sauce pot and use s ome corn starch to thicken the s auce. I add a small amount of s alt and pepper and enjoy it over t he turkey. I always have to have pecan p ie for dessert and that puts the f inal addition on Thanksgiving d inner to me. Having said that, I h ave a pecan pie recipe that I h ope you will enjoy. Cheers, Chef.
