We had a person purposefully f eeding bears here. The bear became h abituated to people it had lost its f ear and was associating human d evelopment with a feeding opportun ity, said FWC spokesman Gary M orse. We cannot relocate those b ears. All we do is relocate a problem t o another area and that problem gene rally will get worse over time. It goes for bears, sand hill cranes, c oyotes, alligators, even raccoons, M orse said. In short, a fed bear is a d ead bear. We must euthanize them.

The proposal could provide funding for the planning and implementation as well as the funding for a num ber of new initiatives, in addition to financing the expansion of some existing programs. Under the program, the county may apply for up to $400,000 each fiscal year for three years, meaning that there ultimately could be as much as $1.2 million available. The sheriff told the board while no cash match is part of the program, a 50 percent in-kind match is required. Benton said the goal was twofold to minimize the costs associated with cases of substance abuse and t he mentally ill and also to begin development of a mufti-disciplinary receiving facility here in Highlands County Driving the effort is an everincreasing caseload. The number of mental health calls has increased tremendously, Benton told the board.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR samantha.gholar@newssun.comSEBRING Students used their science skills to investigate a robbery that took place at Sebring Middle School Tuesday morning. The project was part of the sixth gradersCSI (Crime Scene Investigation) Day at the school as a science integration project. Instructor Angie Porter linked up with the Highlands County Sheriffs Office CSI Unit to provide a mock crime scene for students to use as an engaging tool for science and writing. The students began their week Monday by studying and reading a CSI article in the classroom. The instructors spoke to students about using their observations to make inferences about a place or crime scene. Porter found the assignment served a dual purpose for the students. With this new common core curriculum, we have to do a lot more writing. By using the crime scene scenario, the kids use their observations to make inferences and then they right a report about the scene. The CSI officers express the importance of getting the report correctly. They learn that the report is used sometimes in court cases and if its wrong it could hurt or lose the case for someone, Porter said.

Youre always going to training. Lister said they have all the training they would need to be volunteer firefighters now. Fire 2 is required in Florida for all paid firefighters, which they will be. EMTtraining took five months at South Florida State College. Fire 1 training started in June at DeSoto City Volunteer Fire Department and ended last week, Lister said.

A1946 Aeronca Champ and a 1958 Aeronca Tri-Champ are youth project aircraft at the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1240 Aviation Development Center. The center, located on the Sebring Regional Airport flight line, continues to support youth aviation education with hands-on technical learning. Many early aircraft were covered with fabric to save weight and make repairs easier. Using a state-of-theart fabric covering system, students are using new technology to breathe new life into two classic aircraft. The age of an aircraft means little to the airworthy status as long as it passes a rigorous annual inspection conducted by a certified FAAinspector. Although there is no immediate timeline for the completion of the restoration, we will take as long as we need to do a quality job meeting FAAaircraft certification standards, said John Rousch, EAAChapter 1240 Youth Program coordinator and LPHS aerospace instructor. It is amazing how quickly work can get done when you have interested and motivated youth working on a project. They were like a swarm of hungry locusts taking off the fabric, all the while working carefully with precision. EAAChapter 1240 Aviation Development Center is a community resource and is part of a world-wide association dedicated to advancing general aviation through home-built aircraft, aircraft restoration, promoting aviation education and safety and providing programs to encourage more youth to be actively engaged in aviation. EAAChapter 1240 meets at 6 p.m. every third Thursday at the center. After the business meeting, an aviation program or activity is offered. At 6:45 p.m. this coming Thursday, the program speaker is Bill Brennard, retired Air Racer, protg of Steve Whitman, and long-time EAAmember. An aircraft restoration expert, Brennard led the restoration of a 1931 Stinson Tri-Motor. For more information about EAAChapter 1240 programs, visit eaa1240.org or email Rousch at jhr@strato.net/.

Canadians of Scottish decent brought the first Clydesdales to America in the mid-1800s. Today, the giant draft horses are used primarily for breeding and show. Horses chosen for the Budweiser Clydesdale hitch must be at least three years of age, stand approximately 18 hands or six feet at the shoulder, weigh an average of 2,000 pounds, must be bay in color, have four white legs, and a blaze of white on the face and black mane and tail. Agentle temperament is very important as hitch horses meet millions of people each year. Asingle Clydesdale hitch horse will consume as much as 20-25 quarts of feed, 40-50 pounds of hay and 30 gallons of water per day. Each hitch travels with a Dalmatian. In the early days of brewing, Dalmatians were bred and trained to protect the horses and guard the wagon when the driver went inside to make deliveries. The annual Christmas Parade, which is held in downtown Sebring each year, will feature the theme A Classic Christmas.

Vehicle crashes are the number one c ause of deaths among young adults. T eens are more likely to be killed in an a utomobile crash than any other way, i t says. There are several factors that result i n such a heartbreaking reality. First, and unfortunately, we all pass t hrough trying, but essential, years w hile maturing to adulthood the t ime between 12 and 22, when we feel i nvincible and smarter than anyone e lse. Add peer pressure into the mixt ure, plus a dash of rebellion and a lack o f experience and you end up with young people who are frustrating, arrogant and unwilling to listen, but paradoxically, healthily age-appropriate. Its one of the great cosmic jokes we all have to be know-it-alls and make stupid mistakes before we can begin to gain wisdom. Even the most well-meaning teens can make bad judgments or get caught up in lies. Even teens from tight, loving families sometimes withhold the truth. Think back to when you were young. Did you admit everything to your parents? This is why parents should be kept informed of how their children are doing on the road. Infractions might signal a misunderstanding of traffic rules or a lack of skill when driving clues parents can use to improve their childrens driving habits and abilities. Or infractions can reveal a risk takers pattern of driving too fast or not paying the needed attention to traffic lights and stop signs. The notification, in other words, provides opportunities for early intervention from the family and not the legal system. By alerting parents to potential dangers, the LPPD improves a young drivers chances of survival or avoiding a crash in the first place. We hope this policy is embraced by the other law enforcement agencies in the county. We hope parents make use of critical information not to punish, but to improve. And we hope young drivers themselves will be open enough to learn from their mistakes. LPPDs new traffic violation policy protects young drivers W e thank the Lake Placid Police Department for what we think is an excellent new policy: Parents of drivers 21 or younger will now be n otified by mail of any traffic infractions committed b y their children, whether or not a citation is served. Massachusetts Democrat Barry Greenfield is pushing for legislation to allow police to enter your home unannounced, without warrant, and take your guns. Greenfield actually believes it is a problem that police dont have the authority to enter peoples homes and inspect their firearms to ensure their guns are safely secured. Massachusetts law requires guns to be locked in containers or equipped with trigger locks. James Madison fought for protection from a tyrannical government that would order their police to enter peopleshomes and search for evidence of any incriminating behavior and succeeded with The Bill of Rights. The Fourth Amendment protects you from any personal attacks from Greenfields Police by demanding authorities have reasonable evidence that you are breaking a law of the land. What kind of country is dreamt of by people such as Greenfield in which uniformed, helmeted police can storm their way into peopleshomes during dinner or disrupting the kids study time, demanding you show them your legal guns under the very real threat of the weapons they themselves are displaying? How many times will we have to bear with the apology of police who shot a little boy to death because he helpfully ran down the stairs with his BB gun in a way that made the police feel threatened? All of this because a Big Government Democrat decided he knows better than you how you should live your life? Transfats are being outlawed. Is it really so absurd to consider the Gun Police might also search your home for transfats? It isnt. Prosecutors load up on charges to get some sort of conviction and finding anything in your home that seems not to be in accord with local and federal laws would surely qualify. How might a special division of Greenfields gun police enter the home of Olympic shotgun competitors, local pistol champions, duck hunters and moms protecting their kids? Anyone think theyll simply knock politely? Okay, maybe once. New York City violated the Fourth Amendment for years with Stop and Frisk even though a federal judge ruled it unconstitutional. Stop and Frisk was the federal crime committed by New York police wherein they searched anyone regardless of whether they believe a crime has been committed Mayor Bloomberg appealed, saying the tactic was an important part of [the NYPDs] record of success. These are not isolated incidents of Big Government intrusions into your life. While Greenfield and Bloomberg represent the worst of overtly bullying citizens into obedience, the Democratic Partys top leadership has already been entering your home, office, cell phones and laptops for years. Spying on you and your family, having access to your phone calls (not just the numbers you call), Skype sessions and emails is not just a symptom of accidental overreach. This is the vision of the national leaders of what used to be a party dedicated to freedom. Were all of this being done by Republicans, I truly believe from recent history there would be great outrage rightfully whipped up by the nationa l media. Is the lack of national media outrage due to fear that the Department of Justice continues to spy on them and, in one instance, the family of a journalist? Do they feel a lack of enthusiasm for criticizing a political party with which they agree? I hope local police around the country rebel against this nightmare of constitutional destruction. After all, they, too, have families to protect and are sworn to uphold the constitution, not the illegal directives of local liberal politi cians.

It was very obvious that a lot of time and work was spent on this event by all of the folks involved. The dinner was very nice, and we met some terrific new friends. We come from Southeast Florida, and Sebrings Ag Adventure was an event to be treasured by all the children, teachers, mentors, participants and residents of the Highlands County area. We are looking forward to seeing much more of this as long as we live here, which hopefully will be for many more years. Congratulations on a job well done.

H ighlands County eight years a go, was the inspiration b ehind the studentscrime s cene. CSI unit members Jeff F ennell and Jon Wilkinson s howed students the types of i tems that are normally used a t a crime scene fingerp rint dust, crime scene tape, m easuring tools and the CSI t ruck, which was parked outs ide. Back at the crime scene, R oss Porter of the HCSO e xplained how the students i nteracted with the mock s cene. We let them walk through h ere at a slow pace so they c an look and see everything. W e have a fingerprint there, t here we have a shoe print a nd down here theres a tire p rint. We let them look and o bserve and write down what t hey notice, then the CSI g uys come up and tell them w hat they should have n oticed in the scene and why t hey would need that piece of i nformation, Porter e xplained. The CSI guys, Fennell and W ilkinson, went over the m any types of evidence and h ow it is all used during an i nvestigation. We told them about fing erprints and their identifiers, w hether its a loop or a w horl. We go over how the s hoe print can be matched to a suspects shoe, Fennell said. Angie Porter felt the experience was a great way to mesh with the DNAstudies the children have been going over in the classroom. This helps us to incorporate what theyve been learning about DNAin the classroom with a real-life example, Porter said. The SMS students will continue their studies on DNAthroughout the week including their very own fingerprint study and observation in class today. ically taken into custody and transported to receiving facilities 1,031 persons here in Highlands County. That number, she said, does not reflect substance abuse calls. The sheriff deemed the current system inadequate and failed, saying it provides less service while costing taxpayers a lot of money. Benton described it as a revolving door for local substance abusers and the mentally ill. She told the board that those with specific problems are currently farmed out to different facilities throughout the area, including Polk and Hillsborough counties. Moreover, the cases are time-intensive, taking deputies away from their patrol duties for hours at a time. While some of those transported are taken to mental health or substance abuse facilities, others simply are brought to the Highlands County jail, making it an ersatz holding facility. Tri-County Human Services CEO Bob Rihn compared the new initiative to the award-winning in-jail substance abuse treatment program, also known as JASA. What we are trying to do is extend that further, especially since we have become involved in the mental health area, taking over responsibilities from the Marge Brewster Center, he said. Rihn said the idea would be to reduce recidivism through follow-up and the inclusion of other facilities into the program. There are a lot of pieces that still are empty, but we do have the staff available to do what Im saying through our side, he said. Commissioner Don Elwell asked Benton about the proposed in-kind match, My concern is providing in-kind services for year three and what our exposure is for cash, he said. Benton explained that there are no long-term commitments as part of the program and that the money would be rolled into regular operations. It would be a slow assim ilation of costs, she said. Apublic safety coordinating council also will be appointed to monitor the grant process. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 20, 2013 Page A5 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 4"; Black; main A rhr top of ad stack ; 0 0 0 3 3 4 3 8 VILLAGE INN/DOW SHERWOOD CORP.; 9.347"; 6"; Black plus three; process, main A; 0 0 0 3 3 6 0 2 Continued from A1 t hat the resident had been f eeding the bear out of the g oodness of his heart, the p roblems associated with f eeding bears are just too m uch to overcome. Morse declined to release t he name of the resident or t he specific area of the incid ent, pending further investig ation of the matter. Aflap erupted last year over the feeding of feral cats and dogs. Currently, the practice is permissible to people on their own property or who have permission to put the food out on other land. However, Morse said, many times the food put out for feral cats is consumed by wildlife. If you are putting out food for feral cats, you are liable to create a problem with a large number of species, he said. There are a half dozen species of wildlife in Florida that are illegal for humans to feed, including alligators, bears, coyotes, foxes, sand hill cranes and pelicans. Over the past three years, the problems with bears has increased in Highlands County to such a point that FWC officials have held special workshops on the issues.

Students Stride for Pride Continued from A1 code enforcement. Its all about the delivery of service, Lister said. It provides more trained personnel who are available to respond to incidents. For example, a structure fire call must have at least four firefighters on scene so two can go in while two others wait outside to relieve them, Lister said. Avon Park shifts typically have three firefighters, so they cant send anyone inside until other firefighters arrive. He and his officers just became those extra firefighters, Lister said. Lister said he also he learned a firefighter has to know what a fire is doing and plan how to attack. For example, firefighters might attack a garage fire from inside the house. That prevents fire crews from pushing the fire into the house and burning it down. I enjoyed going to fire school, Lister said. The hands-on work was fun. You learn an awful lot that you dont know. Theres a lot more to it than putting water on (a) fire. Robinson said the plan, since the city converted to having the Highlands County Sheriffs Office provide law enforcement on Oct. 1, 2012, was to have the remaining city officers cross-trained and support the city fire department as they now support the Sheriffs Office. Both Lister and Robinson said Deleon and Lister regularly meet with Capt. Jeff Barfield regarding the state of city law enforcement, crime and public safety. Julian (Deleon) and I are in constant contact with Capt. Barfield, Lister said. (We) talk with him once a week. According to contract, the Sheriffs Office handles emergency calls law enforcement, fire and medical and dispatch the calls to the appropriate stations and personnel while the city officers provide extra personnel, if needed, and handle traffic enforcement and community policing. Lister said its been a good partnership for the past year. Technically, the Sheriffs Office doesnt report to his office or his t o them, but they work togeth er. Deleon praised public safety department personne l for getting multiple-discipline credentials and for attending school on their own time, which saved the city overtime pay. This simply translates into (their) commitment to the organization, Deleon said. Also, Deleon said while he is paying the same employees the same salaries, they have more skills and can perform mor e functions in an emergency. Deleon said its importa nt for the city to manage human resources as the city continues to expand. Avon Park is in the process of annexing Crystal Lake Golf Club, a manufactured home park with 850 residents in 513 home sites.

Wells Motor Co. raises $2,510 for Avon Elementary bullying prevention MEDLEY(AP) Thieves took off about $500,000 worth of Red Bull energy drinks from a South Florida warehouse. The Miami Herald reports the theft occurred sometime over the Veterans Day weekend at a warehouse that opened just a few months ago in Medley, near Miami. When the workers arrived in the morning, they found that the alarms had been disconnected, said Medley police detective Lourdes Muniz. She said the warehouse was locked at 4 p.m. on Nov. 9 when workers left for the weekend. The thieves apparently had a key to the OHL, Inc. warehouse and disconnected the alarm system, said Muniz. A security company remotely monitors the building. Muniz said that once inside, the thieves used four forklifts to move 108 pallets. There were no surveillance cameras at the warehouse, so investigators have no visual way to identify the thieves or the type of vehicle they left in. I have talked to our police command in order to reinforce security in those industrial areas, said Medley Mayor Robert Martell. Thieves take $500,000 worth of energy drinks

Arcs Plant Nursery in Avon Park expands Special to the News-SunTAVARRES Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has joined more than 60 hospices nationwide in becoming accredited with the National Institute For Jewish Hospice (NIJH). The accreditation links Cornerstone Hospice with NIJH which provides staff training, insights on treating Jewish patients who are terminally ill, and access to resources and education about Jewish custom and practice that may arise while caring for a hospice patient who is Jewish. The accreditation was earned after Cornerstones Spiritual Manager Rich Behers attended the NIJH 28th Accreditation Conference in New Jersey this month. The training and resources now available through NIJH enables Cornerstones interdisciplinary teams to provide specialized care to patients of the Jewish faith who are at the end of their life, Behers said. We can now offer appropriate emotional and spiritual support to our patients and their families as they go through this most difficult journey. The NIJH conference brought together people from hospices across the country in related fields, including rabbis, administrators, chaplains of all faiths, psychologists, nurses, bereavement counselor and social workers for an intensive day of sessions, presenting the best minds in the field to lecture and discuss all aspects of hospice and the Jewish terminally ill. We congratulate Cornerstone Hospice for earning this important accreditation, said Rabbi Maurice Lamm, founder and president of NIJH Cornerstone is now part of a databa se of accredited Florida hospices that NIJH will refer patients, families and rabbis to when they seek the best care for the Jewish terminally ill. NIJH was established in 1985 to help alleviate suffering in serious and terminal illness. Its 52,000 members are comprised of business and professional leaders, and a consortium of endowing foundations. NIJH serves as a resource and educational center for hospices, hospitals, family service, medical organizations and all healthcare agencies, educating them to the issues and challenges of serving the Jewish terminally ill. Cornerstone Hospice earns accreditation from NIJH Business Associated PressWASHINGTON J PMorgan Chase & Co. has r eached a record $13 billion s ettlement with federal and s tate authorities, resolving c laims over the banks sales o f low-quality, high-risk m ortgage-backed securities t hat collapsed in value duri ng the U.S. housing crisis. The agreement is the latest c hapter in the bursting of the h ousing bubble. Without a doubt, the cond uct uncovered in this invest igation helped sow the s eeds of the mortgage meltd own, Attorney General E ric Holder said. JPMorgan w as not the only financial i nstitution during this period t o knowingly bundle toxic l oans and sell them to unsusp ecting investors, but that is n o excuse for the firms b ehavior. The settlement announced T uesday requires JPMorgan t o pay $9 billion and provide $ 4 billion in consumer relief, i ncluding principal reduct ions and other mortgage m odifications for homeowne rs facing foreclosure. According to a Justice D epartment document filed a s part of the settlement, J PMorgan bundled low-quali ty loans, regraded them with b etter marks in order to m ake them more attractive a nd then sold them to i nvestors without informing t he buyers of the risk i nvolved. On Monday, the Justice Departments No. 2 official said too many financial institutions had failed in their duty to ensure that their businesses were run cleanly. Recounting the conduct common to many banks including JPMorgan, Deputy Attorney General James Cole told the American Bankers Association that too many supervisors incentivized excessive risk taking, knowing that risky products could be unloaded down the road, ... leaving someone else to deal with the consequences. The final issue in the settlement revolved around the $4 billion to compensate consumers. Some $1.5 billion will be a write-down to reduce the principal of homeowner loans; $300 million will enable homeowners to pay less now on their mortgages; and the remainder of the $4 billion will go toward reducing mortgage interest rates, originating new loans and helping revive blighted properties in some of the hardest hit areas of the housing crisis, such as Detroit. An independent monitor will be appointed to oversee the assistance to homeowners. The agreement eclipses the record $4 billion levied on oil giant BPin January over the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history. JPMorgan, feds finalize deal

Continued from A1 County commission cuts back on meeting schedule Richie Harris TAMPA(AP) Aclass a ction lawsuit against the P olk County Sheriff and the a gencys treatment of juven ile detainees is underway in f ederal court in Tampa. The Southern Poverty Law C enter filed the lawsuit a gainst Polk Sheriff Grady J udd and Corizon, a compan y the sheriff contracts with t o provide inmates with m edical care. The suit was filed in 2012 o n behalf of seven juveniles. T hey allege overly harsh c onditions at the jail caused b y poor supervision, inadeq uate rehabilitative programs a nd an overuse of pepper s pray. The jail typically h ouses 60 to 70 juveniles. Sheriff Grady Judd has d enied the allegations. The L akeland Ledger reports that J udd defends his use of pepp er spray as a last resort for j uveniles who refuse to obey c ommands. He credits it w ith ending confrontations b efore they turn physical. Lawyers for the Southern Poverty Law Center showed video captured at the Polk County Jail during the first day of testimony on Monday. The security video shows a young man in a yellow jail uniform virtually disappearing under the punches and kicks of cellmates. Polk County deputies rush into frame, one wielding a stream of pepper spray. The young man attacked in the video took the stand to describe the scene for Southern Poverty Law Center lawyers. Miriam Haskell, a Southern Poverty lawyer, told U.S. District Judge Steven Merryday in her opening statement that pepper spray only perpetuates violence. Its used at the jail to threaten and instill fear, Haskell said. Jonathan Trohn, a Lakeland lawyer representing the sheriff, argued the Southern Poverty Law Centers accusations arent constitutional violations as alleged. Juveniles rarely received objectively serious injuries at the jail, he told the judge, and pepper spray is used little more than three times a month. The judge must consider the predisposition of the juveniles, Trohn argued, showing a picture of a shank that a fight-prone boy made. If the judge thinks jailhouse fights and suicide attempts were caused by the sheriffs policies, he said, youre not seeing the whole picture. Merryday ordered the lawyers to refer to children involved in the case by their initials only because they were minors when incidents occurred. Trial underway over Polk County juvenile detainees 7 juveniles allege overly harsh conditions SANFORD (AP) G eorge Zimmermans girlf riend said he tried to choke h er about a week ago during a n altercation that wasnt init ially reported to police, a p rosecutor told a judge T uesday during his first court a ppearance on domestic viol ence-related charges. Assistant State Attorney L ymary Munoz said Z immermans girlfriend, S amantha Scheibe, feared for h er life because Zimmerman m entioned suicide and said h e had nothing to lose. Z immermans public defende rs said after the hearing that he didnt appear to be suicidal. Judge Frederic Schott set Zimmermans bond at $9,000 and ordered that Zimmerman stay away from Scheibes house, wear a monitoring device and refrain from contact with her. The judge says he cant possess guns or ammunition or travel outside of Florida. Zimmerman has been charged with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison if convicted. He also has been charged with battery and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors. An arraignment was scheduled for Jan. 7. Schott said that Zimmermans previous brushes with the law werent a factor in the conditions he was imposing, but he did cite the new allegation of choking as a reason for the bond amount. Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges earlier this year in the fatal shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin in a case that drew worldwide attention. Zimmerman wore gray jail garments and handcuffs during the hearing and spoke only when answering yes or no to the judge. New troubles for Zimmerman

By BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING The inaugur al test and tune session for t he TUDOR United Sports C ar Championship at the S ebring International R aceway got off to a quiet s tart with overcast skies and m ild temperatures. The gates opened to the t eams on Friday with 25 t eams finally signing up for t he two-day session at the h istoric airport circuit. It represents the first time c ars from both the former R olex Series and ALMS p articipate in open testing t ogether on the same circuit. The TUDOR C hampionship includes four c lasses of race cars. The lead Prototype class o f the unified series i ncludes GRAND-AMs D aytona Prototypes and the P 2 and DeltaWing cars from t he ALMS. The Prototype Challenge ( PC) and GTLe Mans ( GTLM) classes transition f rom the ALMS, while the GTDaytona (GTD) class includes cars formerly competing in the Rolex Series in addition to FIAGT3 cars with minimal modifications. Familiar faces include the Florida-basedtExtreme Speed Motorsports, as well as Level 5 Racing. Some Sebring veterans are sporting new vehicles, such as both Paul Miller Racing and Flying Lizard Racing which are fielding new Audi R8s. New teams at the circuit included Action Express Racings Corvette Daytona Protype. The morning session Saturday opened to some light sprinkles, which gave way to some mid-morning sun. Although most teams spent their time getting ready for the upcoming season, there were some times to report. Action Express Racing tuned a 153.266 around the 3.72 mile course, while the Rahal/Letterman BMWGT LeMans car ran the 17-turn circuit in 201.798. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The Blue Streak basketball squad bounced back from Thursdays excrutiating loss in the Bill Jarrett Tip-Off Classic opener, to roll past the Thunder of Lake Region by a 68-47 score Saturday afternoon. The defense did what head coach Princeton Harris wanted, the offense was sharper and the free throw shooting, which had been dreadful in the opener, improved this time around. Oh we practiced our free throw shooting, Harris said. Even before we came here for the game today, I had them shooting free throws. The 60-percent mark on the day wasnt exactly burning up the nets, but it was a vast improvement over the sub-50-percent they had shot on Thursday. But it was the defense that was crucial in building a 10point lead at the half and holding the Thunder to just 24 first-half points. Were going to press the heck out of teams and work to get turnovers, Harris said. Its all about keeping your man in front of you. They can take a chance on a steal, so long as they keep in front of him. If they try for a steal and their man gets past, thats not defense. But were going to get after it because weve got the athletes and weve got depth to bring fresh players in, he continued. Sometimes there were some mismatches on switches, like when Gary Demarest was guarding one of their ball handlers. I want them to stay with the man and get used to covering different people so theyll be more used to it as the season goes on. The 34-24 lead at the half held at 10, 46-36 after three, but a quick surge to start the fourth pushed it to a 22point edge that would stand when the final buzzer sounded. Connor Cook lead the offense with 20 points, Keizhan Hester added 10 and Luke Ancrum and Quantrae Rouse had eight points apiece. Ancrum and Rolando Powery controlled the glass with each grabbing 10 rebounds and the pair also accounted for 14 blocked shots between them. Hester filled out his stat sheet with five assists and eight steals. After the tournament spli t, the Streaks have just one By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING As the seas on starts to heat up, the S ebring girls soccer team is a little banged up, but even s o, the Lady Streaks gave a s trong Mulberry squad all t hey could handle before s uccombing in a 3-2 loss M onday night at F iremens Field. The Lady P anthers came in w ith a 6-2-1 record a nd sporting wins o ver the likes of F rostproof, DeSoto a nd Lake Gibson, a nd drew first blood when f reshman phenom Kayla T illman found the back of t he net at the 22:58 mark. Tillman had 15 of M ulberrys 29 goals in nine g ames played leading into t he contest. She struck again in the 3 0th minute to put the P anthers up 2-0, but the l ead was halved four minu tes later. On a free kick, Haylee P eters outmaneuvered M ulberry keeper Francis Cantillano to make it a 2-1 margin the held into halftime. Then, early in the second half, in the 43rd minute, Peters came through with the equalizer. Charging in on a break from the left front of the goal, she deflty lofted a floater that just cleared Cantillanos outstretched hands and crossed the goal line to even it up at 2-2. From there, Sebring had its chances and kept the ball in the Panther zone a good portion of the time. But hesitant or indecisive finishes werent enough to add any more scores. It was tough, we were without Kiersten (Waldron) and Lacey Watson has a sore hamstring, so she was basically running on one leg, head coach Richie Birdsall said. We didnt have our usual forwards, so we werent finishing as strong as we could have. Then, the tie-breaker came in the 70th minute when Tillman earned her hat trick to provide for the final margin. For the match, the Streaks outshot the News-Sun Wednesday, November 20, 2013 BSection Sports Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Luke Ancrum goes up for two of his eight points, after pulling down one of his 10 rebounds, in Sebrings big Saturday win.

But the following week is a full one with a trip to Lake Placid Monday, Dec. 2, and home district games with DeSoto the next day and Lemon Bay on Fri. Dec. 6. In Saturdays finale, Avon Park outlasted Liberty in a defensive battle that came down to an Alfred Brown lay-up in the waning seconds for a 38-36 win. Brown actually started the Devil scoring as well, when after the Chargers got on the board first, he tossed in a tear-drop from along the baseline and then split a pair of free throws. But scoring was pretty much a forgotten commodity as both teams totaled just 13 first-quarter points, with Avon Park ahead 7-6. Liberty doubled itsscoring effort in the second quarter, netting 12, while the Devils totaled 10, all coming from Gus Owens on a variety of leaners, layups and free throws. The slogging slugfest continued with neither team able to pull away, with a combination of tough defense and turnovers keeping the scoring low throughout. Tied at 35-35 with less than a minute to play, Owens hit a free throw with Liberty then tying it up again on a split at the line. After a Devil turnover and foul, the Chargers missed their opportunity to regain the lead and it was Brown who then charged into the lane, lofted up a floater that rattled around the rim a bit before deciding to drop and giving Avon Park the win and a sweep of their own preseason tournament. It was back to the practice floor to tighten things up a bit for second-year head coach Marty OHora s squad before getting their regular season underway. The Devils were at Lake Placid Tuesday night and host Mulberry Thursday.

By DEAN FOSDICK Associated PressCompost or mulch? People o ften confuse the two, a lthough each fulfills a diff erent function in gardening. Which one you want d epends on your needs. Compost is used to feed c rops; mulch is used to supp ress weeds, said Daniel M cGrath, a horticulturist w ith Oregon State University E xtension. Compost is decomposed o rganic matter that is genera lly higher in nutrients and r elatively low in carbon comp ared to mulch. Mulch is r aw, un-decomposed organic m atter. Unlike compost, mulch is g enerally not mixed into the s oil, he noted, but is applied 2 to 4 inches deep on top of t he soil around a tree or s hrub. Mulch has fewer nutrients a nd is not meant to replace f ertilizer, which should be a dded as a supplement. M ulching does, however, m aintain soil moisture, prev ent most weed seeds from g erminating and keep soil t emperatures constant around p lants, said Martha Smith, an e xtension horticulturist with t he University of Illinois. Which kind of mulch you c hoose depends on what y oure growing and where. Some mulch, especially c rushed rock and commerc ially made, color-enhanced m ixtures, can beautify pathw ays, driveways and play a reas. Good mulch is easy to a pply and remove; is free of n oxious weeds, insects and d isease; and adds organic m aterials to the soil as it b reaks down. There are different b yproducts used across the U .S. based on local supply, S mith said. That includes pine needles in the South, hazelnut shells in the Northwest and buckwheat hulls in the Southeast. Some different mulch materials from which to choose:Shredded bark, wood chips and shavingsEasy to spread and longlasting, but can rob the soil of nitrogen and make landscape plants turn yellow. Look for arborist chips or ground-up tree branches that can make a good mulch and often are available for the asking from tree trimmers.Gravel and stonesStone doesnt have to be replaced like organic mulches, but it is expensive and will work into the ground. Stone is great for problem areas, though, like deep shade or in channels cut for stormwater runoff.Black plastic and strawBoth are commonly used in vegetable gardens and orchards. Plastics, however, prevent water from entering the soil, while straw contains grain seeds that can germinate.LeavesShredded leaves provide good insulation and weed control, although they wont allow much water to penetrate. Work them into the soil after they decompose. Others include newspapers (unattractive unless shredded), peat moss (inexpensive but acidic), shredded rubber (doesnt decompose but may smell) and landscape cloth (allows water to infiltrate but must be tacked down). Some materials to avoid: Grass clippings, especially any containing herbicides. Clippings are better left on lawns where they break down quickly and return some nutrients to the soil. Treated wood chips, charcoal and ash especially barbeque briquettes and coal ash may include compounds and chemicals harmful to pets and plants. Sawdust packs tightly and is unsightly.

However, when I went to Walmart to buy a bottle of ink for my real old-time fountain pens you know, the ones you used to get or give for gradation or bar mitzvah they looked at me as if I were a dinosaur. Ink? In a bottle? Let me get the lady who is in this department. So we waited while she called for an associate. Ink in a bottle? Let me call someone who is more familiar with this department. I have only been here for a month. So now we had three people looking for a bottle of ink. Number three researched the problem and told us that Walmart doesnt carry that item. But my husband, the genius, said lets look in the art or drafting supply store or a regular stationery store. So we went to a chain office supply store and inquired where they stocked bottles of ink. A bottle of ink? Ink in a bottle for a pen? Let me ask the manager. Ink in a bottle? The manager was a fresh-faced youth. Again, genius came to my aid, Do you have a drafting or art supply department? Oh that stuff. We went to the appropriate area, but still no dice. Genius said, Lets go to a real stationery store and not a chain. So we did, in Sebring. Nobody uses ink anymore. There is no call for it, so we dont stock it. See all these fine pens with no mess. The next place, the owner was not as old as I am but old enough to remember real fountain pens. I have India Ink. That should do the trick. We bought a bottle, only $3.47. The reason for the ink was so that I could test my old Parker pens if the bladder could still fill with ink and if the nibs were smooth or scratchy. The next step was to send them back to Parker Pens as I had in the past for restoration. However, when I contacted the manufacturer, they no longer had parts, but said they would send me a list of places that did repairs on such items. In due time I got the list, but no one was in Sebring not even in Highlands County. I am skillful on the telephone so I attacked the list. Of the 40 places, I selected two to call, one in Florida and one in Manhattan, thinking that at the New York address they would know everything. I am a New Yorker! Well, it was nice to hear a Manhattan accent. They were very helpful and even quoted me a price for restoration $145 for a gold nib and $69 for handling. What were they going to handle? One bit of important information they gave me was not to put India ink in the bladder. It would gook (their word not mine) up the works. The next call I made was to Fruitville. Here I hit the jackpot. How did I know? Well he used the word restore instead of repair. With my background in antique clocks I was impressed with the distinction. With old world Florida courtesy he was happy to help me and began to tell me how I could do it. He told me how to clean the bladder with a few tablespoons of ammonia and a cup of water, and that I didnt need ink to test the bla dder but could use plain water. He only charged $69 for gold nibs and $32 for steel but would replace whatever was on the pens now. Fortified with this information I wrapped the pens and sent them off. I will le t you know how they work when I get them back in 10-12 weeks. Again from my background in clock repair, I knew that restoration takes longer than repair. I did finally find ink at Home & Office Essentials Inc. on Main Street in Lake Placid. They didnt carry it, but they ordered it for me and I will have it on Monday. Love the hometown stores. In case you want to know why I would want to restore the old pens instead of buy ing a new one for $30 or $40 it is because I want to give my son and grandson the pens that Grandpa and Grandma used so they can hold in their hands what he touched and was given for his graduation.

Oh, how I adore T hanksgiving. Family and f easting and giving thanks w hat could be better than t hat? Here in the United States, o ur Thanksgiving marks the u nofficial kick-off to the h oliday season, too, so it r eally is an exciting time. Thanksgiving is only a c ouple of weeks away, so its n ot too early to start thinki ng about the menu. If y ouve taken our 30-Day P aleo Challenge lately, you m ight be wondering how y oull survive this foodf ocused holiday without your n on-Paleo favorites, but have n o fear. Its not as difficult a s you might think to surv ive Thanksgiving as a P aleoista, and Im going to p rove that to you right now. So, lets take a look at s ome favorite traditional T hanksgiving standbys and I ll give you some Paleof riendly substitutes. Turkey: No need to t ake turkey off the menu, as y ou know. Youre free to add a s much butter and bacon to t hat bird as you like. Dressing: If you are a voiding gluten as part of a l ifestyle choice, and not b ecause of a celiac condit ion, you dont have to o ffend Grandma Mae at dinn er by skipping out on her f amous dressing. By all m eans, have a bite or two if i t wont do you too much h arm. But, if youre prepari ng the meal, go ahead and e xperiment. Dressing doesnt h ave to involve bread. Get c reative in the kitchen and s ee what you can do with s ome pork sausage, diced s weet potatoes and apples, p ecans, cranberries, mushr ooms, celery, etcetera, e tcetera. Start trying out s ome recipes now, so youll h ave the right one perfected b y the time your dinner rolls a round. Mashed potatoes: White p otatoes are one of those i tems that can cause debate b etween Paleoistas-some of u s eat them, some of us d ont. Ascoop of mashed p otatoes isnt going to send y ou to Paleo Prison, so if y ou feel so compelled, go a head and enjoy a bite. If y oure preparing the meal, s ee if you can find some p urple potatoes to boil and m ash to serve on your T hanksgiving plate. Purple p otatoes have more nutrition i n them than their white c ounterparts, and they are so p retty on the plate. If you w ant to avoid spuds all t ogether, whip up some fauxt ay-toes by steaming caulif lower and whipping with b utter, heavy cream and seas onings. Sweet potato casserole: B y all means enjoy a sweet p otato casserole for T hanksgiving this year. Just d ont add brown sugar and m arshmallows to it. Peel and s lice four or five sweet potat oes and toss into a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and lemon pepper. Add about half of a thinly sliced red onion on top so it looks like there are pretty purple ribbons on top of your sweet potatoes. Drizzle again with olive oil. Bake at 400 for about 35-45 minutes until everything is golden brown. Even non-sweet potato lovers love this. My own brother was tricked into thinking these were carrots at one Thanksgiving dinner. Cranberry sauce: Most homemade cranberry sauce is made from sugar with sugar added to sugar and more sugar. But what is Thanksgiving turkey without cranberry sauce? For a delicious Paleo-friendly cranberry sauce, add some fresh or frozen cranberries to a saucepan. Cover the berries with orange juice and add honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar to your taste. Add in lemon zest or orange zest for color and a bit of extra citrusy zing. Once you start making your own cranberry sauce, youll wonder why you havent always been whipping up this simple sweet dish. Turkey gravy: Many gravies involve cornstarch or white flour, and neither of those items are Paleo-friendly. Sometimes I like making a simple au jus out of pan drippings, butter and a bit of chicken broth. But you can find dozens of Paleo gravy recipes online. Again, start experimenting with recipes now, so you'll have just the right one down pat for your Thanksgiving dinner.

The college in Boston will rename the school for one day only the Ron Burgundy School o f Communication on Dec. 4 to honor the fictitious television anchorman. Actor Will Ferrell, in character, is scheduled t o share his path to journalism greatness with students. His visit will include a news conference, the renaming ceremony and a screening of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Ferrell, as himself, will introduce the movie. College President Lee Pelton says Burgundy understands the power of media, as well as hairspray, firsthand. Burgundy, known for telling people hes kind of a big deal, says he hopes to let students know how hard it is to make it to the top, in his words, especially if you dont have good hair.

H e then went on to earn his M asters of Education in C urriculum and Instruction f rom Radford University in R adford, Va. Ashley is currently a s ixth-grade math teacher at L ake Placid Middle School. Despite a relatively short t enure at LPMS he has been r ecognized by his peers as a n upcoming leader. He s erves as the Math D epartment team leader, as w ell as a member of the C urriculum Leadership team, a nd the district-wide Math C onnections committee. As L ake Placid High Schools v arsity soccer coach, he is r esponsible for all activities a nd practices related to the program. Due to his leadership and hard work, a program that was financially deficient has experienced a 900 percent increase in its funding. Success in Ashleys classroom has not been in short supply, either. For the 2011 FCATseason, his students achieved 85 percent growth. This followed a 74 percent student achievement growth in 2010. Ashley encourages each of his students to shake his hand upon entering his classroom. This provides him with a differentiated instruction, as is the daily brain engaged activity, which each student must complete independently. Lessons in Ashleys classroom are driven by data derived from an assessment at the beginning of the school year. He incorporates reading strategies for all math problems and uses the UNRAVELstrategy for vocabulary. To assist his lower level FCATstudents. Ashley has implemented the use of a red/green card. Every student has one on their desk to silently notify him if they understand or dont understand the concept being taught. The green card up signifies understanding, while the red card signifies they need more assistance. In addition to earning ESOLcertification Ashley also holds the Middle Grades Integrated 5-9 certification. Mary Pinson, the literacy curriculum resource teacher, said, As the reading coach, I am thrilled each time I observe in Jamesclassroom due to his incorporation of reading strategies for all math problems. Julia Burnett, principal, Lake Placid Middle School, explains part of the reason for his success. He consistently and aggressively explores strategies that will enhance his instructional delivery of the curriculum. His room is saturated in evidence of differentiated instruction, high levels of student engagement, clear objectives, and purposeful technology applications. Chris Doty, a principal from whom Ashley worked, said, He is not a clock watcher, but a task completer. James will do what it takes to get the job done, regardless of the time. Ashley has only been in Lake Placid for two years, but says he is here to stay. His wife is the assistant principal at Lake Country Elementary School and they were blessed with a little girl eight months ago.

Special to News-SunLAKE PLACID The L ake Placid Noon Rotary C lub had a surprise party N ov. 14 to celebrate Bill R ichters years of Rotary s ervice. Richter has been in R otary for more than 50 y ears. He joined Rotary u nder two classifications i n Morgantown, W.Va. in t he 1960s he was an auto r etailer and then he later b ecame a real estate broker i n Lake Placid. He was p resident of a club in M organtown with more t han150 members in 19781 979. Richters most stressful m oment in Rotary was w hen he received a visit f rom an International R otary president from Q ueensland, Australia. Richter was born in D etroit in 1924. He has b een married to Doris for m ore than 68 years. They h ave two children and three g randchildren. His son a ttended college at NADA in Michigan, and his daughter received her diploma from West Virginia University. Richter once caught a sailfish when he was about 100 miles out at sea from Key West. The sailfish weighed more than 500 pounds and was 14 feet tall. It took him 3 to 3 1/2 hours to reel it in. When he came to shore with the fish, the captain had radioed in to tell them that they would need a hoist and about 1,000 people were there to meet him and his fish. Richter worked at Tomoka Heights Realty in Lake Placid as a sales agent for about six years. He found out that a number of his friends had moved here from the Keys and were living in Tomoka Heights. Richter has been a loyal Rotarian, and his fellow Rotarians and his family are very proud of him and his accomplishments. Richters 50-plus years of Rotary service honored Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Rotary Club of Lake Placid recently gave $600 to support the Lake Placid High School Band Program. Third year Music Director Josh Vaughn mentioned thathe is building a program of success for the LPHS music program by creating musicians, rather than merely playing instruments. He complemented strong parental support through the Band Boosters and strong community and school board backing. Having completed the Homecoming Parade, Vaughn is busy planning a December Holiday Show, the Christmas Paradeandan AprilSpring Concert, often including the entire music department of theband, the orchestra and the chorus. The Band Boosters are important because so much happens outside the classroom. Band Booster president Adela Abela mentioned just a few fundraisers: the Masonic Lodge sponsored spaghetti dinner, LPHS license plate sales,Caladium Festival, Thunder Night concessions, car washes, andrummage sales are just a few. Most recently, Wendys Restaurant in Lake Placid has been sharing 20 percent of its sales from 5-8 p.m.one day a month with the band. The band currently has 40 members and always welcome new members. Work is ongoing in the elementary and middle school music programs to recruit and retain future band, orchestra and chorus members. As Drum Major Aston Abela said, the music must go on! For more information about the LPHS music program, Vaughn may be reached by email at vaughnj@highlands.k12.fl.us.

Congratulations to Ray and Nancy Dubuque for their home selection as House of the Month for November. I recently had the privilege of serving as a volunteer with Highlands County AgVenture at the local fairgrounds, which was converted to an outdoor classroom for three days in October. This was the 14th annual event where 1,200 Highlands County third-graders spend a day learning and doing hands-on activities related to agriculture.The event provides opportunity for thirdgraders to gain experience, understanding and appreciation of local agriculture.Being a farm gal raised on a dairy farm in northern New York, I was completely impressed with the enormous planning, organization and smooth operation of this program and the delight these kids exhibited.Although I only helped one day, it was a happy and wonderful experience and will definitely enlist to help at next years event. Welcome to several snowbirds returning this month. We still have residents experiencing health problems to include Dolly Blonde, Allan Grosman, Jackie Wilson and Jerry Niedzelski. Our thoughts and prayers for all. Very best wishes to everyone for a wonderful Thanksgiving.We trust each family pauses a moment to thank our Creator for the rich blessings of each day. LAKE PLACID When I went grocery shopping this weekend I saw the seasonal cookie, Pfeffernusse, in the store. I was so pleased, I bought two boxes. For me, they are part of the holiday season, the aroma of molasses and species. If you like them too, Archway has its own little Christmas cookie stand in Publix. Nov. 10, Military Soup and Sandwich meal was very well attended. Peggy Sue Teague was the master of ceremonies. John Reece did several readings on Veterans Day and Marilyn Cromer said Grace. The meal of chicken noodle or potato soup with the pulled pork sandwich was so tasty. The desserts are always donated and there are always plenty of them. Nov. 11 was Veterans Day. We started the meeting by pledging allegiance to the U.S. flag. All veterans, including Canadians, were asked to stand and be honored. The coffee was made and hosted by Jim and Kitty Quartier, Carol Noel, Marcia and Mike Collier. The display of doughnuts, muffins and cookies for our coffee was in honor of Kitty and Carols birthday.

Retail giants associate Black Friday to the biggest shopping day of the year. Did you know the term Black Friday was adopted from the accounting world, as in black ink means a positive profit margin and the months before most retailers are in the red or negative? This is the home stretch for retailers alike, just as it is for consumers too. Black Friday ads are being leaked left and right. This is strategic on the retailers part as they want you excited to shop their store. By leaking the ads now, you have time to do your research and develop your buying and gift giving list. My Christmas is going up this week and personally I cant wait for Thanksgiving week. Many stores like CVS, Walgreens, Kohls and Kmart will be open on Thanksgiving Day with early bird and night owl sales. Other stores will start as early as Wednesday with drastic price reductions in preparation for the big day. Take advantage of the tips below and be a success story next week! 1.Get your newspaper on Thanksgiving Day The newspaper on Thursday, Nov. 28 will be as stuffed with store sale flyers as your Thanksgiving turkey. It will be overflowing with ads, coupons, store ads and more. This is your number one source for Black Friday savings. 2.Make a list and check it twice Research your big ticket items now ahead of time and know what items you are going for. List what you are buying and pair it with the store of your choice. Items like electronics, toys, bedding, game consoles, phones, and more will be at an all time low. By doing your homework in advance, you will be confident in what you are buying. 3.Resist impulse buys It will be easy to be side tracked by the hot surprise deals on Friday, but if it isnt on your list resist the urge to buy. It could mean the difference between a budget buster or happy checkbook. 4.Early Bird gets the worm Take advantage of Night Owl and Early Bird discounts. If your store of choice advertises Night Owl discounts from 7-11 p.m., tak e advantage of that pricing and arrive early. Many stores will be open Thanksgiving Day. If you are shopping a big box super store giant, be prepared to arrive hours early for your place in line. The price will be worth the wait. 5.Online shopping Remember that most of the items on sale Black Friday week will be available online during the sam e hours and you can even choose site to store shipping for many stores. (Free shipping direct to the stor e) If the thought of shopping at home in your pjs and favorite coffee excites yo u, then this is the way to shop. www.DivineSavings.com will be full of deals every minute, every hour of the Thanksgiving week just for you.

Black Friday shopping, part 1 Savings Diva Tanya Senseney DearAbby: My husband and I want to start a family, but until now our circumstances have not made this possible. After a big move and starting a new business, we have decided its about time. My problem is my husband uses drugs to relieve stress. I dont feel he abuses them; it just takes the edge off after a hard days work like a glass of wine does for me sometimes. I would like him to stop taking the drugs while we are trying to conceive in case it could affect the baby. He is unwilling and it makes me crazy. I have decided that if he cant do this, he isnt ready to be a father. On the other hand, hes a hard worker, and I wonder if by asking him to do this I am being selfish. Please give me some advice. Ready for Motherhood in Mississippi DearReady for Motherhood: You are not being selfish, you are being prudent. According to Dr. June Reinisch, director emerita of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction: There is some evidence that suggests certain drugs can attach to the sperm and therefore affect the fetus. So the best plan for a healthy baby would be for the man to be as cleanas possible before he starts to make a child. This is because sperm are produced about three months before they are released. DearAbby: One of my husbands relatives is filing for bankruptcy for the third time. His wife recently started to receive disability. I believe they are abusing the system. I know she was not truthful on her disability application. I work in the health care field and in the past have completed evaluations for disability claims. I know the only way she would meet the requirements would be if she misrepresented her current abilities. Everyone else in the family works hard to support themselves, so I cant understand how this attitude is tolerated. What has pushed me over the edge is they have announced theyre going to have a bankruptcy party. They have invited everyone over to enjoy food and beverages that will be purchased with a credit card they have no intention of paying. I feel an obligation to alert the disability office to her misrepresentation. My husband agrees that what theyre doing is wrong, but he doesnt want me to do anything about it. This has caused a problem between us because I no longer want to go to family dinners. I know if I keep going and have to listen to them laugh about using taxpayer dollars to support their laziness, I will eventually explode. What do you think about this? Somewhere in the U.S.A. DearSomewhere: I think your relatives are committing fraud and that it should be reported. Disability payments were meant for individuals who truly need them, not those who are gaming the system. And if you choose not to associate with these kinds of morally bankrupt individuals, you shouldnt have to. I can see how it would ruin your appetite. Shenanigans like this should be investigated and the abusers prosecuted to the full extent of the law. DearAbby: Well, here is a new one on me. I was walking through a Macys looking for my wife, and right there in front of me was a 40-something woman in her bra trying on a blouse! Please tell me is this the new normal? Greg in Gainesville DearGreg: Its unusual, but not unheard of particularly if all of the dressing rooms are in use. In order to prevent this from happening again, avert your eyes when youre in the womens department.

Page B12 News-SunWednesday, November 20, 2013 www.newssun.com Yes, thats right. Sweet potato p ancakes. They are a great altern ative to your traditional breakfast h ot cake. They go great with m aple syrup and a dash of butter. They are also a great side dish t o serve for dinner with a piece of g rilled chicken or fish, and if you m ake some for your friends or f amily, I am sure they will be i mpressed with your presentation a nd great flavors. If you wanted to get kind of f ancy with your pancakes, you c ould make them and them place t hem on a cutting board and use a r ing mold to cut out circles and t hen stack them up with butter in b etween. As I am writing this, my wheels a re turning now about other things t o pair them with. I bet that if you p ut some Swiss cheese between t hem while they were hot and let i t melt, it would probably taste p retty good. I would definitely s erve that combo with a grilled c hicken breast with a nice piece of A rtisan bread. Another idea is to serve them as a sandwich. I think putting some d eli sliced turkey and maybe some c ranberry mayo with a slice of c heese would be a good sandwich, t oo. Just thinking about it right n ow is making me hungry. Hope y ou all are having a good week. Cheers, Chef.
