District officials say they want an amended conservation plan and an amended compliance report analysis or they will move forward with litigation and further penalties against the system. The utilities system has until Jan. 9 to comply. District officials have been after the local system, owned and operated by District 5 Highlands County Commissioner R. Greg Harris, for a decade in an effort to resolve what they termed the serious, long-standing violations in a Water Use Permit issued to Country Club Utilities, Inc. In a letter this past August, SWFWMD officials warned that without a substantial reduction in water use, it would be possible that the customers of the utility could experience an increase in rates and/or an interruption of service. Utilities officials responded with a compliance report analysis and water conservation plan in October.

Brynna Maxine Williams, 61, was c harged with aggravated battery with a d eadly weapon following the incident, w hich was called into 911 at 12:28 a.m. The victim, 46, reportedly was standing outside with a visible puncture wound to his upper left chest when deputies arrived. He told them that Williams had been drinking most of the night and went to bed, taking two dogs a Labrador retriever and a Husky with her. Since the dogs took up too much space in the couples bed, the victim said he slept on the couch. At around 12:20 a.m., the victim said, he woke up to Williams standing over him with a butcher knife. He said he doesnt know why she stabbed him. Williams told deputies she didnt know where the knife was, but refused to make any other statements, saying she wanted a lawyer.

Man wakes up to girlfriend stabbing him Williams News-Sun staffAVON PARK Aman was charged with battery causing great bodily harm, kidnap/false imprisonment and child neglect after he allegedly beat a woman and then fell asleep on top of a 5-month-old child. According to arrest reports, Steven Andrew Acevedo, 24, repeatedly struck the victim, leaving her with red marks and abrasions on her face, bruising on her arms and also two bite marks, one on her shoulder and another on her thigh. The victim told deputies she tried to leave the residence, but Acevedo wouldnt let her, instead beating her more. She waited two hours before she felt like she could get away when Acevedo was asleep. The victim ran to her friends house to call deputies. When they arrived, they reportedly found Acevedo asleep on the bed on top of the child. He was resting on the bottom half of the child, the report said, and didnt cause any injury. Acevedo had a stench of alcohol coming from his person, the report said.

Highlands County S heriffs Deputies a nswered a call at approxim ately 11:30 a.m. Monday a nd learned the robber had e scaped with miscellaneous i tems and an undisclosed a mount of cash, according t o Nell Hays, public inform ation officer with the S heriffs Office. At two hours after the i ncident, the Sheriffs Office was not yet prepared to release a description of the robber, she said. Also, deputies have not yet released the type of weapon used in the robbery. Capt. Randy LaBelle over the Criminal Investigation Division also would not confirm on scene the type of weapon, only to say it was an armed robbery. He deferred other questions to Hays. Hays, in turn, said Tuesday that investigators arent releasing any other details at this time because they are so early into the investigation. Sheriffs Office K-9 Deputy Chris Bates and K9 Maverick were on scene along with K-9 Deputy Wayne Gunn. The Sheriffs Office Crime Scene Unit was also investigating into the afternoon while the proprietors stood outside and waved off potential customers to keep them from crossing the crime scene tape. Hays asked anyone who has information about this case to call Detective Jason Mulligan at 863-253-1266 or contact Heartland CrimeStoppers at 1800226-8477 (TIPS).

T hakkar Pavilion. Adam Meredith, who p lays Jim in the play, likes t he black box theater setting o f the Drs. Thakkar Pavilion b ecause of the intimate sett ing. The play takes place in N ew York City at the flat of J im (Meredith) and Della ( Bethany Finney), a newlyw ed couple with very limited f unds. They each have one t reasure that is valued above e verything else they own. He h as a pocket watch that was g iven to him by his grandfat her, and she has beautiful f lowing hair. They each decide that they h ave the perfect gift. He will b uy her a set of combs for h er hair, while she decides to g et him a fob for his watch. Seems simple enough, but, t he author of the work (O H enry) is known for his twists and turns of the plot. What twists and turns will Jim and Della go through to find the perfect gift? Director Jillian Febres suggests that, They find that sometimes the most precious gift can not be bought. This is Febres first production as a director, but she has been in many productions at the Little Theatre, including Lend Me A Tenor, which was one of the summer comedies. She said that the biggest challenge for this production was getting everyone together to have rehearsals. Meredith said this production had about a third of the normal rehearsal time that most of the plays have. Febres pulled the show together, however, and Sue McCollum, who Febres called the co-director, suggested that this may have been in part because of the attention to detail Febres has. One example of that may be the snow that decorates the set. Febres said, When I think of the story, I think of snow. After all, the setting is New York City. Meredith has appeared in many productions. Somewhere in the upper teens, he muses. He won a Zenon award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Oklahoma. Jim is pretty akin to me. Even some of the dialogue are things that I might say, he said about his award-winning role. He studies with an opera teacher at Warner University. The same teacher that worked with Bethany Finney. Finney has been with the Little Theatre for about eig ht years and has also been in productions that total in the high teens. She won a Zenon recently for her work as choreographer for the Drowsy Chaperone, which was presented last year. Although Meredith and Finney play the lead in the play, the entire cast works together to make the magic happen. There are performances b y Savannah St. John, Tracey Finney, Daniel Finney, Steven Lundey, Susan Schillarth, and Ken Hall. The musical director and accompanist for the play is Ruthann Esseltine. The Gift Of The Magi runs from Dec. 13-15. Frid ay and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m.and there is a 2:30 matinee on Sunday. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for kids. For more information or tickets call 382-2525, and watch for the production of On Golden Pond from Jan. 15-26.

F urthermore, the response f rom the SWFWMD charges t hat irrigation rates and use c alculations as submitted w ere inaccurate and not d erived using the appropriate m ethodology. District officials are calli ng for the compliance report a nalysis to be completely r ewritten and include a disc ussion of the utilitys plan f or improving their meeting of reporting deadlines to the district. According to SWFWMD, over the past 12 months the utility has been 32 days late on average in submitting its monthly meter reading data, and was 45 days late in submitting Public Supply Annual Reports and other compliance items. Moreover the District contends that the utility failed to submit any reports for four of those months. Aconsent order issued to the utility in September 2012 provides a penalty of $81,949 with $2,000 in additional costs. District officials again warned if the matter could not be resolved by the proposed Jan. 9 deadline, the District would initiate litigation and could seek penalties and costs beyond the current $83,949 announced fine.

Not because in some cases private industry cant do a job cheaper, sometimes they can. It is because public safety is not the same thing as trash collection or accounting work. We live in a county where a large number of citizens are elderly and need first rate medical care. Is it wise to try to provide that care with a low bid vendor? We recently saw the dangers associated with privatizing public safety. Aprivate company contracted to provide security for the juvenile correctional facility on the Avon Park bombing range failed completely. The riot that occurred there caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. It had to be quelled by public law enforcement officers from Polk and Highlands County, the Florida Department of Corrections and the Florida Highway Patrol. All at taxpayer expense. Is this the type of thing we want for our families when we call for an ambulance? Not likely. In addition, you have to ask, where would that private company save money? Is it with less experienced or trained paramedics? Lower quality equipment? Lack of maintenance on the ambulance? All the vendors will say they can save money, but at what cost to the public? We just dont know. Do we want to endanger the lives of our loved ones on a cost savings experiment? We already know that our paramedics and EMTs at Highlands County EMS are outstanding. If the commission wants to compare costs with other counties to see if there is room for savings, fine. But to consider replacing our EMS with an unknown quantity and quality is wrong, wrong, wrong. When you add the fact that when governments contract for services, the promised cost savings often fail to materialize, there is little reason to even consider this plan. There are a few fundamental functions that are the reason We the People form governments. Public safety is the primary one. Law enforcement, firefighters and EMS. I think most people would agree that these things are too important to risk by adding a corporate profit motive into the mix. The commission should immediately drop this bad idea. Dana B. Orr Avon ParkGrinches are all aroundEditor: I sympathize with the family who lost their Christmas tree to thieves. Believe me, I know exactly what they feel and more. Four months ago I lost my husband, Lenny. Since Christmas was so close to the date of his death, I decided to just put up a few decorations. But, when I went into our shed they were all gone. Every single piece of my collection of Christmas decorations and a small tree were stolen. Most of them have no monetary value at all; most of them were made by my late mother some 30-40 years ago and others by family and friends, each piece having a special memory. The value of these treasures to me is priceless, but to a stranger they are just things. I just dont understand why anyone else would want them. So to the Grinches who stole my Christmas forever, I hope they realize they have brought even more sorrow to me and my family. Nothing can replace them. How could you? Sunny Serafino SebringNo fear of change, but changes should be beneficialEditor: I read Mr. McAllisters letter, titled Conservatives Fear Change. At first he does not identify who or what he means by conservatives but as you read on, you come to the realization he is referrinng to Republicans. I have found in my 90plus years of living, there are two kinds of change. One is change for the better and the other is change for the worst. He complains that the GOP is doing nothing to improve health care in this country. This is understandable, as the Democrats have controlled the Congress since President Bushs last term in office. I surmise that Mr. McAllister is comfortable with the changes that are now occurring in our country. As for myself, I am not. I could care less about gays and their lifestyle. When it comes to health care and employment, I worry. This program known as Obamacare is disrupting the lives of millions of citizens. Citizens are being told b y the government what kind o f care they will have to pay for, even if they dont want it. As an elderly woman friend of mine said, Why do I have to sign up and pa y for abortion coveragewhe n I am 80-plus years of age? Somebody is really nuts. This present government is not trying to improve the economy; millions of peopl e cant find jobs. It is news to me that Conservatives want to end Social Security, Medicare, and employer pensions. Wh y didnt they do this when th ey had the upper hand in Congress? I got my Social Security card in 1935. President Roosevelt said the money you pay into Social Securit y would go into a trust fund and when you quit working the Social Security payout would help with what you had saved. When the President Johnson administration saw all this money accumulatin g, the Democratic Congress closed the trust fund and appropriated the money for its own use. Johnson even put people on Social Security who never paid a dime into it. No, Mr McAllister, Conservatives dont fear change, but they do want beneficial changes.

EDITORIALPAGEPOLICY Those readers, both pro a nd con, saw the commiss ions decision to continue i nvestigating EMS options a s the first step in the p rocess. Acontentious debate e xploded on the social netw orks and through emails m any of the messages shrill, s ome of them angry, all of t hem passionate. For the record, the NewsS un believes EMS should c ontinue to be a public comm unity service. But heres t he thing only one comm issioner has made his posit ion clear, and Jim Brooks is i n favor of keeping the servi ce public. Just because the o ther commissioners want to i nvestigate alternatives does n ot mean they have made up t heir minds. The speed of the response a lso surprised us. People d idnt give themselves a lot o f time to think. They went w ith knee-jerk reactions i nstead, which didnt enrich t he debate. Just the opposite in fact, people stopped listening to each other. If we insist on individual liberty, however, we must be responsible individually. Certainly a citizen must pull his or her weight in the community. The least we citizens can do for elected officials who have enough troubles of their own making is to let them do their jobs without heckling from the sides. Especially when a decision is as complicated as this one that includes issues like quality of service, cost, who is liable and who pays. By listening, well learn more about emergency transportation and how to provide care in the field. That can only help the community. Which leads to our last point. While it was alarming to see the heightened emotions, what was heartbreaking was the mostly negative points of view: People dont care; life is getting worse; politicians cant be trusted. Now is not the time however, to give up in despair. We suggest a different perspective: When citizens care enough to listen to a full debate, attend workshops and withhold judgment until all the facts have been heard, life gets better, not worse. And while politics attracts its fair share of scoundrels, most politicians can be trusted most of the time. The Highlands County commissioners are, after all, neighbors serving as elected officials who are trying to do a through job. Citizens have to allow them do that. Its how democracy works. Let the discussion happen before you make up your mind R esponse to the NewsSuns front p age story Sunday headlined County to study p rivate EMS s urprised us.

The council is considering c hanges that would allow for a lcohol to be served on a p atio, as well as possible c hanges to the hours alcohol c an be served and the minim um distance required b etween a location that sells a lcohol and a church or s chool. Law enforcement or code e nforcement enforce any s tate law requirements upon a ny license holder for activit y outside of the store. Once o utside of a licensed store, t he purchasers are legally off premises. The current law also proh ibits alcohol sales from 2 a .m. to 7 a.m. on most days a nd before 1 p.m. on S undays and also sets an 8 00-foot minimum distance f rom a church or school. The proposal was approval u pon first reading with the i nstruction for the town a dministrator and staff to do f urther research and bring f indings to council for further consideration. Included in the research will be the exact measurements to building such as schools and churches. It was suggested that staff obtain the county requirements and to make sure that the local ordinances do not conflict. The council turned to discussing the lease of Bishop Park and Bicentennial Park. The council has previously addressed the issue of the park lease in regard to maintenance and aesthetics. The Free and Accepted Masons, owners of the property, are holding a trust for the Boy Scouts, but the Lake Placid chapter is non-existent. It was suggested to find out if the Free and Accepted Masons were willing and able to sell the property. The town discussed the fire prevention interlocal agreement proposal with the Town of Lake Placid and the county. The purpose of the agreement is to cooperate with each other for the county fire marshal for the review of construction blueprints and interpretation of the fire codes. There was a motion to not move forward with an interlocal agreement with the county until further review. The interlocal agreement with the school board regarding the tennis court project was discussed briefly as the school board representative did not make it to the meeting. The council decided to suggest that the school board move forward with the proposal and that the town will be responsible with the agreed upon amount for the 2013-14 fiscal year. The discussion turned to the procurement of a new garbage truck and curbside recycling. The county is in the process of developing recycling procedures. The question about the garbage truck was about compatibility with whatever recycling procedures are established. Public Works Director John Komasa clarified that the truck that is being purchased is a single-stream truck, which means that the truck is compatible with both the normal trash that is collected and the possibility of recycling collection. Komasa also clarified that there has been no extra charge for excessive garbage collection at any address. Lake Placid studying change in towns alcohol ordinance Cookie monsters welcome in Sebring Thursday-Saturday also conducted on Saturday. On Sunday, the aircraft was recovered and taken to a secure location for examination. There we laid it all out over the floor and tried to make it a helicopter again to see what could have gone wrong, Murray said. Small electronic gears will soon be sent to the NTSB national laboratory for testing and examination. An extensive air frame and engine check will also be done. Apreliminary report can be expected in about 10 days, Murray said. Murray, a retired military pilot with several years of experience working investigations of aircraft, said a cause for the crash wasnt readily apparent. With helicopter crashes one of two things usually happens, the aircraft is scattered over big distances or it is contained in a small area. Thats what happened here, it was all in one spot the aircraft hit in a very soft dirt spot. All the indications are there and it looks like he did have power when he crashed, Murray said. The crop duster-type aircraft was configured for chemical application of some sort, according to Murray. He had reported in, he was done with work for the day from what was reported. He was repositioning from a field in the northwest headed back towards the airport. There wasnt anything we found in the helicopter. All that was left in the helicopter was aviation fuel and a small amount of residue from the chemical that was being sprayed, said Murray. Afull report takes between nine to 12 months to complete. Murray said that there are a high volume of accidents and only a small amount of investigators throughout the country to complete the work. Only 14 investigators work the East Coast of the U.S. from Maine to Michigan. Just over 50 investigators cover the entire nation. This is considered a big investigation. Any time theres a fatality, we treat it as such, but we work through D.C. so it does tak e some time, Murray said. The Highlands County Sheriffs Office was commended by the NTSB for its cooperation and full compliance throughout the investigation. They were absolutely outstanding, Murray said. They were very helpful. In fact, we couldnt have done a lot of it without them. They set up a mobile site so that we could conduct inte rviews comfortably out of the heat. They were cooperative from start to finish. The preliminary report is expected to be available on the NTSB website within 10 days.

a pproach, said he still t hought the two-tiered rate w ould be more fair. Were lucky were debati ng two methods to lower ( the) cost. Thats a move in t he right direction, S utherland said. City Manager Julian D eleon presented two o ptions to the council on M onday. Atwo-tiered a pproach would charge a flat r ate of $70 for every propert y and then add on $1.68 for e very $1,000 of improvement v alue. Another approach proposes a 23-percent cut for all property owners, which council members preferred. Links on the citys web site outline the differences in the two plans. He said the current assessment of $165 per property was set in 1999, prior to his employment with the city. A change has not been made since then, he said. Jim Barnard, a nine-year resident of the city, said he preferred reducing the fee for everyone and not changing the method of assessment. Barnard said that with annexation and growth, the city could afford to lower property taxes and could probably lower the rates for the fire department, as well. Some churches pay several thousand dollars, Barnard said. He also suggested the City Council place a cap on the assessment and not raise it without a voter referendum. Mayor Sharon Schuler said some property owners would get a huge discount and some would get very little, but she agreed with 23 percent, so everyone could receive some amount of discount. Deputy Mayor Brenda Giles said she ran for election on a platform of reducing the fire assessment or getting rid of it, and also supported the reduction. However, Sutherland said using the tiered system would remove the need to reevaluate the service calls to each address and make adjustments to the amounts on a regular basis. He also said the tiered system seemed more equitable because those who would pay more have more invested in their property and stand to lose more in a fire. Sutherland also liked the fact that attorneys with Bryant Miller Olive P.A. legal firm who devised the new method would defend that method against legal challenges, if needed. Councilman Garrett Anderson said he agreed, but disagreed: He wanted to do away with the reviews ever y two or three years, but didnt think now is the time to make a change. He said lowering the rate now and looking at the new method later would give the city the opportunity to lowe r the assessment even more. Councilman Terry Heston said he didnt have a preference for either method. b uildings. That policy has a llowed entrepreneurs make r ecent conversions of downt own spaces into two new r estaurants and a barber s hop, with two more restaur ants in the works, said City M anager Julian Deleon. When the city council last d iscussed the matter on Nov. 2 5, it was a tie vote 2-2 which defeated a motion t o extend for only two years. C ouncilman Terry Heston w as absent. Heston said Monday he s upported an extension, but f ound it hard to believe the c ity would impose a high i mpact on an existing buildi ng. City Attorney Gerald B uhr said the fee goes into e ffect when the buildings u se and amount of water and s ewer use changes. At the time, local business o wner and former C ouncilman George Hall s aid he and other local busin ess owners have paid thous ands of dollars in impact f ees to provide water and s ewer capacity and insisted t hat new businesses also pay t heir share. He also said the waiver O rdinance 33-13 waived the value of his business through what he paid in impact fees. Mayor Sharon Schuler said Monday that Hall, who owns a laundromat business, had suggested to her that the city could have new businesses pay the first $2,000$3,000 of the fee and then waive the rest. We are trying to be business-friendly, Schuler said. David P. Ailstock, who recently refurbished the citys old post office at 18 E. Main St. into a restaurant, said he would have left the building empty if he had been forced to pay the citys water impact fees as a new business. The waiver made moving in affordable, he said. Avon Park has stepped up to the plate, Ailstock said. Councilman Garrett Anderson, who said he originally supported a two-year extension, said he was OK with five years, as was Heston. In other business, the city council voted unanimously to first reading of the annexation of Crystal Lake Golf Club, as part of the 2010 utilities purchase agreement with the owner, Mink L.L.C. Kay Nelson, Crystal Lake resident, told council members that Deleon had answered hers and others questions about the annexation. Our main concern is timely trash pickup, Nelson said. The city council also agreed to accept the deed of wastewater facilities at the Banyan Woods Development. However, on advise from Buhr, council members held off on approving the maintenance agreement. Buhr said he would review the agreement and come back with a recommendation at the next regular meeting on Dec. 23. When the takeover is complete, the city will have added 50 new utility customers and will have an annexation agreement with the owner of Banyan Woods, on schedule for sometime in January, Deleon said.

Dubbed Veterans Veranda, the p ortico/pavilion is a treated-wood, s hingle-roof shelter with arbors. It w ill serve as a place for family g atherings, veterans group meeti ngs and awards ceremonies, both c ivilian and military, Shoeman s aid. Jesse Coulter of Lakeland runs t he Readjustment Counseling S ervice also known as Vets C enters from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. W ednesdays at the clubhouse, 541 A lton St. in Avon Park. The free p rogram helps combat veterans, v eterans who experienced sexual t rauma and both military personnel a nd families whove lost loved o nes to conflicts. Coulter said his job is to reach o ut to combat veterans where they l ive, advocate for their benefits and g et them help for post-traumatic stress disorder, alcohol or drug abuse and other combat-related issues. We provide a comfortable, nonjudgmental assimilation back into society, Coulter said. (We help them) get their program together. Having a pavilion in Avon Park will help attract more Highlands County veterans to the clubhouse and provide a serene place for them to gather and talk, he said. An open group meets there from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday. This will be more advertisement for what were doing and what the community is doing, Coulter said. Larry Roberts, program manager with American Legion Riders, said that in addition to giving veterans free help to get benefits through federal, state and local agencies, outreach programs help prevent the isolation that leads to suicide and other abuses. Fred Edwards, a fellow American Legion Rider, said he developed PTSD with the U.S. Army Americal (23rd Infantry) Division after surviving the Tet Offensive from 1968-69 in Vietnam. We thought the world was coming to an end, Edwards said. After returning home, he also suffered from alcohol addiction. It took him three and a half years to walk into a Vets Center in New Jersey, he said. That was 15 years ago. Edwards said he still has PTSD, but has been clean and sober all this time. If it wasnt for Vets Centers, I wouldnt be sitting here today, said Edwards, who helps support Vets Centers along with Roberts. The beauty of our (free) program is meeting vets like Fred to connect with (them) and give (them) an opportunity to connect, Coulter said. Thats what Shoeman hopes the portico will do for all of his residents. David Herbert, facilities manager for Avon Park Housing Authority, said the porticos 6-inchsquare, treated-wood columns have been set 3 feet into the ground where the shuffleboard courts used to sit, then had 3.5 inches of concrete poured around them. The posts were connected to beams with lag bolts and hurrican e joints. Tony Doty, general manager of The Home Depot in Sebring, said architect Keith Hunnicutt of Swilley Curtis Mundy Hunnicutt Associates Architects Inc. in Lakeland donated time to draft th e plans. Dotys nine-person crew arrived at the clubhouse at 8 a.m. Monday to start work and already had the structure in place by lunch, which was cooked by Shoeman. The crew started laying the roof that afternoon. Doty said he wanted his best crew, so he brought the A-Team, with an average 10-12 years of construction experience each. Every year, Home Depot does a Celebration of Service event, an d Veterans Veranda keeps with th at commitment to help the community, Doty said.

students, who then empower their schools, families and communities to make healthy eating choices daily and play or exercise at least 60 minutes each day. This all started last year. The students earn points by keeping track of what they eat. They hop online and put in little things about how theyve been healthy throughout the day, how long theyve exercised or whatever and they learn little points along the way, said physical education instructor Willie English. English and instructor Cynthia Cook were the masterminds behind the Fuel Up campaign at SNL. Cook stated that the most important part of the process was for the students to become ambassadors for good health. The biggest thing is for the kids to become ambassadors, Cook said. We have just over 100 ambassadors at our school. Ambassadors are looked at as leaders in their schools and community as advocates for a healthy lifestyle. Ambassadors get to enjoy perks, including meeting NFLplayers, unique prizes and school exposure. SNLAssistant Principal Isaac Durance was thrilled that the 75 students were able to enjoy a NFLgame for their hard work and healthy decisions. The students chosen were a mixture of higher grade point averages and some who were borderline as well as a few students who have had behavioral issues throughout the year. Durance stated taking the lesser performing students was only fair and could help curve those struggling students in the right direction. We got 75 tickets. The kids got to go down on the field and hang out and lots of cool stuff, Durance said. It was a good experience for everyone. Members of the Dairy Council of Florida presented Cook and English with a $4,000 check for their work with the Fuel Up campaign. Hardee dairy farmer Kevin Moore spoke to students last week about the importance of farming and the benefits of choosing healthy eating habits over bad ones. Prizes were handed out and games were played throughout the morning to showcase the achievement as SNLas one of the healthiest schools around. c oncerts at 8:30 and 9:15 a .m.

By RONALD BLUM Associated PressLAKE BUENAVISTA Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox made the biggest news on the first day of the winter meetings, an indication of the timeout in the tradeand-signings market. The trio of retired managers was elected to the Hall of Fame on Monday in a unanimous vote by the expansion era committee. The other big news was the retirement of twotime Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay after 16 seasons at age 36. But after all the deals last week, there were almost no new transactions. David Price still was being dangled on the trade market by the Tampa Bay Rays. Shin-Soo Choo and Nelson Cruz could be signed for a large pile of cash. Maybe theres a little bit of calm after the storm, and the next storm is a few days away, Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said. Well see. Something will happen while everyones here, but maybe its a little lower volume than some other years just because so much has already happened. Two years from free agency, Price is the most high-profile player mentioned in trade talks this week. The 2012 ALCy Young Award winner had a salary of $10,112,500 this year, nearly one-sixth the By BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING When the T UDOR United Sportscar C hampionship kicks off at t he Mobil 1 12 Hours of S ebring presented by Fresh f rom Florida this coming M arch, it will be led by A utomobile magazines Automobile of the Year t he 2014 Corvette. The Corvette has long b een a tremendous performa nce value wrapped in an a ll-American package, the m agazine says in its review o f the car. Now, however, with newf ound sophistication and u ser-friendliness, the [new C orvette] should melt the b arriers that have kept away s o many driving enthusia sts. Automobile magazine edit or-in-chief Jean Jennings p raised the Corvettes overa ll design, performance, quality and comfort. The automobile of the year has to set a standard, she said. It has to break a category in a way that really excites us, she said. Sebring International Raceway Assistant Marketing Director David Gourley, who already has put more than 700 miles on the new car, said that as good as last years car was, this years version is a cut above both in styling and mechanics. For instance, this one has the Z-51 suspension package -which is one of the most advanced packages you can get in a production vehicle, he said. The system actually makes adjustments every 10 milliseconds to the suspension of the car. Its one of two features that are unique to this earlyproduction vehicle. The other is a carbon fibre roof. Aesthetically it is a lot different it really is a whole new car, Gourley said. The Sebring International Raceway received delivery of the new model and has had some temporary event decals applied it will not be in full race livery until January. The Corvette was made the official pace car at Sebring in 2012 when Chevrolet joined the track as part of a multifaceted marketing partnership.

Quiet opening for baseball winter meeting See MLB, B4 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun fil es Shaquavia Gayle and the Lady Dragons won their fifth in a row Monday night. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt looked to be somewhat of a rebuilding year, though there were some early signs of hope. Third-year head coach Jackie Coyne had lost the services of her standout daughter Alex, now a freshman playing Division I at Southern Mississippi, and low-post force Brea Wilson. She did, however, have back the potent scoring of Quiahja Williams and Shaquavia Gayle, though there were still a lot of question marks as the season got underway. And yet Coyne saw the road ahead as one of bumps, but progression. We have a lot of skill, she said earlier in the seaon. But a lot of it is young and will need experience to get better. Well that experience has apparently been coming along more quickly than expected as the Lake Placid ladies currently find themselves on a fivegame winning streak, which continued with Monday nights 49-47 win at Clewiston. The Lady Tigers came into the contest with a 7 -4 mark and would be a tough task. But the scrappy, relentless Lady Dragons stayed with them in this backand-forth affair and prevailed for the narrow win. They got their victory roll started in the last game before the Thanksgiving break with a 45-36 win at Okeechobee and continued their first game back by topping Hardee 51-33 on Monday, Dec. 2. The Dragons cruised the next night past an overmatched Frostproof squad, 45-19, and thoug h it wasnt the prettiest, they got past the Cowgir ls of LaBelle 51-49 on Thursday, Dec. 5. It was ugly, Coyne said. It felt like there were 250 turnovers. Which shows that there is still a lot of progress to be made, even as the wins continue to pile up. Lake Placid looked to keep the roll going Tuesday at Mulberry, and then get a tough district test Friday when they get a visit from Avon Park. Lady Dragons continue to roll Dan Hoehne/News-Sun files Haylee Peters scored four goals Saturday, moving her among the Class 3A scoring leaders. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Though she took Saturday off from her normal goal keeping duties in Sebrings 5-1 win over Avon Park, Shannon Bloemsma has certainly been impressive guarding the net this season. Her goals against average is 1.33 per game thus far, putting her 10th in Class 3A, 23rd in the state among all classes. Among those top 10 in 3A, Bloemsma is second in total saves with 82, well above the next highest total, the 41 saves each of Gulf Breezes Jessie Droogsma and Largos Aubanie Higdon. She is still, however, a little ways behind the 117 saves that Katy Hurst of Fivay has amassed. In Saturdays win, which moved the Lady Streaks to 9-4 on the season, Haylee Peters shouldered the scoring load with four goals. This brings her season total to 13 goals in her 12 games played, putting her 16th in 3Afor goals per game and 26th in overall points per game. Across all classes, she is 60th in goals per game. The duo looked to each add to their season totals Tuesday at Poinciana and will continue Thursday at Frostproof and Friday at Tenoroc. Two Lady Streaks among soccer leaders

By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated PressNEWYORK Jameis W inston will have plenty of c ompany at the Heisman T rophy ceremony though h es not expected to have m uch competition. The Florida State quarterb ack was among a recordt ying six Heisman finalists r evealed Monday, along with N orthern IllinoisJordan L ynch, Texas A&Ms Johnny M anziel, Alabamas AJ M cCarron, Auburns Tre M ason and Boston Colleges A ndre Williams. Six finalists invited to New Y ork for the presentation are t he most since 1994. The winner will be a nnounced Saturday night. Winston is the overwhelmi ng favorite to win the award n ow that a sexual assault c omplaint against him in T allahassee, Fla., has been c losed without charges being f iled. He could also become the s econd freshman to win the a ward. Manziel was the first just l ast year. Famous Jameis, like J ohnny Football last season, i s a redshirt freshman. While Winston was a lock t o be invited, the rest of the f ield was muddled. Some contenders had late s tumbles (Manziel and L ynch), others (Mason and W illiams) made late runs. Manziel will try to join a nother exclusive Heisman c lub by becoming the second p layer to win the award t wice. Ohio States Archie Griffin w on the award in 1974 and 75. The Aggiesquarterback is t hird in the nation in total o ffense with 368 yards per g ame. Lynch led No. 24 Northern I llinois (12-1) to within a v ictory of a BCS bid and has s et the major college record f or yards rushing for a quart erback this season with 1 ,815. He also tweeted that he w as a finalist about five minu tes before the official a nnouncement was made on E SPN by 1996 winner Danny W uerffel. NYC here I come!! T hanks to the coaches teamm ates and media relation c ouldnt of did it wt out t hem! the record-setting seni or posted. McCarron completed 67 p ercent of his passes for 2 ,676 yards and 26 touchd owns for the fourth-ranked C rimson Tide (11-1). This will be my first trip t o New York City, and I cant p ut into words how much it m eans to me, McCarron said i n a statement released by the s chool. I am truly privileged t o have the opportunity to r epresent our team at the H eisman ceremony. None of t his would be possible witho ut my coaches and teamm ates. Mason helped No. 2 Auburn reach the BCS title game, running for 304 yards and four TDs in the SEC championship game. He is ninth in the country in rushing (124 ypg). When I heard the news, I was in disbelief, Mason said in a statement. For me to be invited to the Heisman ceremony, I am honored and blessed. I couldnt have done it without my teammates; this is an honor for all of them also. Williams is the nations leading rusher at 175 yards per game and the 16th player in FBS to run for 2,000 yards in a season. Winstons arrival as Florida States starting quarterback was being touted as a major event in the spring and he has surpassed the hype. The Alabama native is on pace to break the NCAA record for passer efficiency rating (190.1) and has already set records for yards passing (3,820) and TD passes (38) for a freshman. Winstons only issues have come off the field. About a month ago, a yearold sexual assault complaint against him made by a female Florida State student was given by police to the state attorneys office for a full investigation. Awoman claimed Winston raped her. Winstons lawyer said the sex was consensual. Winston continued to play, and play well, during the investigation. Last week, the state attorney announced there would be no charges filed in the case, and two days later Winston threw for three touchdown passes and ran for a score as No. 1 Florida State won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game 45-7 against Duke and wrapped up a spot in the BCS title game. In the latest straw poll released Monday by HeismanPundit.com, which has correctly predicted the last seven winners, Winston received seven of the 10 first-place votes and 26 points to easily outdistance Lynch (eight points and two first-place votes). All six finalists are expected to attend the ceremony, which would match for the most in Heisman history. That season Colorado tailback Rashaan Salaam won the Heisman, and Penn States Ki-Jana Carter and Kerry Collins, along with Alcorn States Steve McNair, Alabamas Jay Barker and Miamis Warren Sapp were finalists.

Corvette has also been inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame it was the first American marque to be so honored. Local residents have had the opportunity to see the car this month at area Christmas parades and at last weekends Sebring Historics races presented by Alan Jay. Last month, the pace car made its debut at the Festival of Speed in Orlando, where Gourley said it caused a bit of a stir. In addition to the Automobile Magazine honors, the newly designed Corvette has earned Road & Tracks Performance Car of the Year, as well a s Yahoo Autos Car of the Year designations.

Heartland Trail Association upcoming activities Continued from B1 Chevrolet has quite a long history at Sebring payroll of the attendancechallenged Rays. This is how we have to operate within our little world, Rays manager Joe Maddon said. So if it were to happen, its one of those thats almost the word devastatingin a sense, but we have to recover from those kind of moments, if it does actually occur. Price would join James Shields, Matt Garza, Carl Crawford and B.J. Upton among players who left the Rays, whose average home attendance of 18,646 was the lowest in the major leagues. Few fans means tight cash flow. Just think if you could have kept all those guys for several years and keep them together for maybe 15 years like the Yankees did starting in 1995, to present time, said Maddon, whos been touring the United States in an RV. I do commit myself to that thought on occasion, but the reality is thats not the way it is. So I dont lament that. Im really happy for the guys that once theyve done well here, they go somewhere else and do well and make good money for themselves and their family, he said. Baseballs high rollers have made many of their moves already. The Yankees, stung by missing the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years, spent $307 million to add Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran and Kelly Johnson and to retain Hiroki Kuroda and Brendan Ryan. They didnt seem very concerned that Robinson Cano left for a still-unfinished deal with Seattle said to be worth $240 million over 10 years. After winning its third World Series title in 10 seasons, Boston watched Ellsbury head to its Bronx rival. The Red Sox allowed catcher Jarrod Saltamacchia to leave for a $21 million contract with Miami and replaced him with A.J. Pierzynski, who agreed to an $8.25 million, one-year deal. Curtis Granderson, Joe Nathan, Jhonny Peralta and Tim Hudson also have signed with new clubs, and Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler, Doug Fister, Jim Johnson, David Freese and Heath Bell were traded. The pace of turnover has been a bit dizzying. Its been a quicker-moving offseason certainly than I think anyone expected. The movement last week was unlike most years, Cherington said. I would imagine theres probably a lot of trade talk this week, because a good chunk of the free agents are off the board. Miami introduced Saltamacchia during a new s conference just after a per son familiar with the negotiations said the Marlins had agreed to a $7.75 million, two-year contract wi th first baseman Garrett Jone s. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hadnt been finalized and Jones had yet to take his physical. That means Miami coul d look to deal first baseman Logan Morrison, who has slumped during consecutiv e injury-interrupted seasons. Toronto slugger Jose Bautista also could be available. I know some teams hav e asked about him, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. Hes sitting in the center of our lineup and still one of the best hitters in baseball. You can under stand why teams are asking about him. But hes still here right now, and were glad to have him. AP Sports Writer Steven Wine contributed to this report.

The two films shared best picture i n the awards announced Sunday by t he L.A. critics, but Gravity was t he top award-winner. The innovat ively made, lost-in-space drama w on for best director (Alfonso C uaron), best editing (Cuaron and M ark Sanger) and best cinematograp hy (Emmanuel Lubezki). Her, which is about a man ( Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love w ith his computer operating system ( voiced by Scarlet Johansson), also w on for K.K. Barretts sleek, nearf uture production design. But the c ritics otherwise spread its honors a round. Dual winners were the theme. Best actress was shared by Cate Blanchett for her fallen socialite in Woody Allens Blue Jasmine, and Adele Exarchopoulos for the lesbian coming-of-age tale Blue Is the Warmest Color. (The later film also won for best foreign language film.) Best supporting actor was also a two-fer, with the group jointly honoring Jared Letos performance as an HIV-positive transsexual in Dallas Buyers Club and, more surprisingly, James Francos performance as the cornrowed gangster Alien in Spring Breakers. Best actor went to Bruce Dern for his performance in Alexander Paynes father-son road trip Nebraska. Early movie awards can help sort out the Academy Awards race, but theyve been particularly varied this year. Last week, the New York Film Critics Circle named David O. Russells Abscam fictionalization American Hustle best film. The National Board of Review picked Her. The Gotham Awards elected the Coen brothersfolk tale Inside Llewyn Davis best film. On Sunday, both the New York Film Critics Online and the Boston Film Critics named the slavery epic Years a Slave best picture. The LAcritics also voiced its strong support for the film naming Lupita Nyongo best supporting actress, and giving a special citation to the films creative team. Other awards included: Before Midnight for best screenplay, Stories We Tell for best docume ntary, and Ernest & Celestine for best animated film. Last year, the LAcritics chose a s best picture Michael Hanekes agin g drama Amour, which went on to win the Oscar for best foreign language film. Gravity, Her tie for LA Film Critics best picture honor MCT Gavity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, was the top award winner at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association awards.

The dance floor was full for each and every dance. The Circle Theatre proved it could handle the many stages of the event and deliver the guest experience that will be remembered for many years. The new bride said, The first time I saw the Circle Theatre, I knew it was a very special place just like all of Sebring. Sebring is not just the hub of the peninsula, but to us it is the center of the universe! The wedding fun at the Circle Theatre proved we picked the right place! Richard agreed. How very special to have a hometown with this level of class and character, and how special to have so many friends and family assembled the weekend before Thanksgiving.

DAR Patriots ChapterSEBRING For their December meeting, members of the Patriots Chapter enjoyed a musical program, which included holiday favorites, presented by the very talented Soundworkz Quartet. Toys were collected for children of veterans and a report was given by the Chapters DAR Services for Veterans chairperson, Ruth Carnavole. In addition to the toy drive, each year grocery gift cards are collected so that less fortunate veteran families can enjoy Thanksgiving. Plans were finalized for the CruisinInto Spring Fashion Show and Luncheon at 11 a.m. Feb. 22 at First United Methodist Church with catering by MaeLees. All proceeds are used to fund youth programs and local scholarships. Tickets are $25, and sponsorships are still available. On Dec. 15 the membership will celebrate its first holiday social at the Circle Theater beginning at 4 p.m., and all members and guests are invited. The Patriots Chapter recently made a donation toward the historic preservation of the theater. Members will be looking forward to seeing the donor star in the theaters lobby. For information, contact Polly Boyd at 414-8615 or email pollycboyd@aol.com.Rotary Club of Lake PlacidLAKE PLACID Lake Placid High School Interact Club officers recently provided sponsor club, The Rotary Club of Lake Placid, an update on club activities. Interact is a club for youth who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact Club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves. With more than 40 members, the LPHS club is extremely vibrant. Recent projects include record breaking blood drives, homecoming activities and the Manna Ministries Turkey Scavenger Hunt. Interact members are looking forward to participating in The Salvation Army bell ringing, the American Cancer Association Relay for Life, the Lake Placid Country Fair and the Caladium Festival. Every early release day, club members meet at DeVane Circle Park for cleanup. In the past, Samaritans Touch Care Center benefited from Interacts bottled water drive. Leadership is an essential aspect of Rotary, and Interact offers programs to help emerging leaders develop their skills. Through these groups, participants strengthen their leadership skills, serve their communities, increase their world understanding, build friendships, and more. Interact meets Thursday mornings at LPHS during the school year. The Rotary Club of Lake Placid meets every Wednesday at 6:44 a.m. at Platters Restaurant in Lake Placid.TOPS 632LAKE PLACID Leader Judy OBoyle asked about everyones Thanksgiving holiday. Apparently it was really a good one as this was the first time, in a long time, the club had a weight gain, although not a big one. Everyone will be trying extra hard this week to erase that gain. The best loser wasJanet Mitchell. The Yes Yess this week are fish and salad. The No No is soda or, as in the North they say, pop. Phyllis Hieronymous gave a very informative program on Holiday Eating Made Easy. Some suggestions were to prepare what you will encounter when you go out, and dont beat yourself up for overindulging.Get back on track if you think you have faltered. Mary Anderson was picked for the travel gift.

Made b y simmering animal bones i n water over the course of 3 6-72 hours, bone broth is a d elicious, healing elixir. All those minerals from t he bones are infused into t he liquid through the simm ering, being leeched out w ith the help of cider vineg ar, leaving you with a heali ng concoction that provides m any nutritional benefits i ncluding stronger teeth and b ones, better gut health and r elief from joint pain. This time of year, when w e are all trying to avoid the f lu, I increase my daily i ntake of bone broth as it a lso helps to boost the i mmune system. For this reason, I always h ave a crock pot bubbling a way with this wonderful l iquid. I drink some in the m orning and eat at least one b owl of soup (bone broth b ased) every day. To make your own bone b roth: Put your bones in a pot w ith some onion, organic c elery, carrots, herbs and a f ew cloves of garlic. Add a c ouple of tablespoons of a pple cider vinegar to the w orks to help leech the mine rals and nutrients out of the b ones. Bring your broth to a boil a nd then let it simmer for at l east 12 hours, but prefera bly for up to 72 hours. This p rocess doesnt have to take p lace continuously. You can c ook the soup during the day a nd turn off the stove when y ou go to bed. Then, turn it b ack on the next day, and so o n and so forth. Strain the broth when y ouve cooked it as long as y oure going to. If youve done it just right, the broth should gelatinize when you refrigerate it overnight. This gelatin is the key to what makes the broth so nutritious. Here are some suggestions of ways you can get a twocup serving of bone broth in on a daily basis: Replace your hot morning drink of tea or coffee with a steaming hot cup of bone broth Make a simple egg drop soup by stirring a cracked egg into a simmering pot of broth Use bone broth as a stock for vegetable or beef soups or stews. Stir some bone broth into your braising liquids as often as possible Our grandmothers had it right bones really do make the best soups.

Grandma had it right: bones make the best soup Dinner Diva Leanne Ely Food By LYNN ELBER APTelevision WriterLOS ANGELES Violent dramas on the broadcast networks carry milder parental cautions than cable shows like The Walking Dead but can equal them in graphic gore, a failure of the TVratings system, a new study found. Scenes of stabbings, shootings, rape, decapitation and mutilation invariably received a TV-14 parents strongly cautioned rating on network TV, according to the Parents Television Council study released Monday. But similar fare on cable typically was given the most stringent label, TVMAfor mature audiences only, researchers for the media watchdog group found. There are zero-point-zero series rated TV-MAon broadcast, said the media watchdog council President Tim Winter, despite programs that are awash in violent scenes. It is vital to examine the medias effect on children and real-world violence, Winter said, adding that he hopes his nonpartisan groups findings are part of a wide-ranging search for solutions. The study of 14 series during a fourweek period found a 6 percent difference in the overall incidence of violence of all types on cable versus broadcast, with 1,482 violent acts on the cable programs and 1,392 on the network series. Federally regulated broadcasters face sanctions if they cross the line on indecency or expletives but not violence. With competition from unregulated cable and its variously daring series such as Breaking Bad and Masters of Sex, networks have resorted to more mayhem. Episode ratings are decided by networks and cable channels, similar to how the movie studiosMotion Picture Association of America self-governs by issuing its own movie ratings. The TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board, which is composed of TVindustry members and public interest advocates, checks for ratings uniformity and responds to public complaints. It received 38 complaints in the past year. The ratings system serves as a valuable resource for parents and helps them make responsible viewing decisions based on what is appropriate for their own families. The industry regularly reviews the TVratings to ensure they continue to be useful to parents, Missi Tessier, spokeswoman for the boards executive secretariat, said in response to the PTC study. NBC, CBS, Fox and CWdid not comment on the study, which did not include any ABC shows. Under political and social pressure in the mid-1990s, the voluntary system was established by the TVindustry to be used with the so-called V-chip that can block shows electronically. Networks find it financially vital to avoid applying TV-MAratings, Winters said, which scare off advertisers. To assess how the ratings are used, the PTC said it analyzed the seven shows each on cable and broadcast TV that had the highest levels of violence. Each shows first four episodes of the 2012-13 season were analyzed. TV-14 warns that a program may include intense violence, sex or language not suitable for children under 14, while TV-MAis intended for shows that might have indecent language, graphic violence or explicit sexuality, according to the TVParental Guidelines webpage. The PTC study defined graphic as especially vivid, brutal and realistic acts of violence that are explicitly depicted. Among the network examples cited: Abar fight scene on NBCs Revolution in which a character wields a sword and a dagger to slash open a mans chest, cut anothers neck and stab a third in the chest. The blood-spattered character pulls his sword from the last victims body. CWs Supernatural, in which a trail of blood leads to the bodies of tw o priests impaled on a cemeterys wrought-iron fence. Their eyes have been gouged out and blood drips dow n their faces. Awoman is tortured in captivity with an implanted camera sending images of her agony online in an episode of CBSCriminal Minds. An FBI agent watches as a hammer is dri ven into the victims head. Depictions of shootings, stabbings and dismemberment were found on cable shows including AMCs The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad and FXs Sons of Anarchy. Five of the seven cable shows had TV-MAratings, with Walking Dead eventually switching from TV-14 to MA. Other broadcast shows in the study included NBCs The Blacklist, Fox s Sleepy Hollow, CBSCSI and NBCs Law & Order: Special Victim s Unit. Although administered differently, movie ratings have also been criticism for being soft on violence. Astudy last month found the numb er of scenes featuring gun violence in PG 13 movies has come to rival or surpass the rate of such action in R-rated projects. Study find erratic TV violence ratings by broadcast networks fail parents Met ro A recent study says that ratings for shows on broadcast networks dont do a good job of letting parents know which shows should not be seen by kids. ORLANDO (AP) The r ock bands Heart and B arenaked Ladies along with c ountry singer Willie Nelson h ave canceled their planned p erformances at SeaWorld in F lorida, citing a recent docum entary that raises questions a bout the effects of captivity o n whales. Heart was the latest act in t he past week to cancel a ppearances at SeaWorld O rlandos Bands, Brew & B arbecue music series in F ebruary, making their a nnouncement over the w eekend. The series is held o ver several weekends and f eatures top classic rock and c ountry acts. Aposting on Hearts offic ial Twitter page said the d ecision was influenced by t he recently-released docum entary Blackfish. The d ocumentary raises questions a bout the effects of captivity o n killer whales at marine parks such as SeaWorld. Nelson and Barenaked Ladies made their decisions after fans launched Change.org petitions urging them not to perform at SeaWorld. SeaWorld spokesman Nick Gollattscheck said in a statement that marine park officials respect the performers decisions but added that they were disappointed that a small group of misinformed individuals was able to influence the performers. The bands and artists have a standing invitation to visit any of our parks to see firsthand or to speak to any of our animal experts to learn for themselves how we care for animals and how little truth there is to the allegations made by animal extremist groups opposed to the zoological display of marine mammals, Gollattscheck said.

WASHINGTON (AP) S ilver could take on a whole n ew meaning when it comes t o car shopping. With more o lder drivers on the road, the f ederal government is cont emplating a silver car rati ng system that will help i dentify which cars better p rotect elderly drivers and p assengers in a crash. Federal highway safety o fficials will investigate the p ossibility of such a rating s ystem as part of a five-year p lan designed to reduce the n umber of fatal and injuryc ausing accidents among o lder drivers. The plan, released T hursday, also called for m ore research into how techn ology could prevent crashes o r reduce their severity. One p romising technology warns d rivers when their car has m oved outside its lane. A nother automatically a pplies the brakes when a car is destined to ram the vehicle in front of it. Over the past decade, the number of fatality crashes in the U.S. has declined significantly, but the progress had been more modest for older drivers, and came to a halt last year when 5,560 people over the age of 65 were killed as a result of motor vehicle crashes, a 3 percent increase from 2011. Another 214,000 were injured, a rise of 16 percent. The government has a 5star safety rating system for vehicles. Its now asking whether it can do better when it comes to older drivers. They are expected to drive more miles and drive later into life than previous generations. Let me be clear. What were talking about here is information. Information is power. This is not something that is going to change the price of vehicles, said David Friedman, deputy administrator for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The idea is to get consumers as smart as they can be about their safety choices when they walk into the showroom. About one in five drivers, or 35 million, currently are 65 or older. The aging of the 77 million baby boomer ge neration those born between 1946 and 1964 will add to the number of older drivers on the road. NHTSAs plan focused on helping them drive as safely and as long as possible. Congratulations, Placid L akes! The community spirit i s overwhelming, there must b e something in the water!

LAKE PLACID The first dance of the season, Welcome Back was held Nov. 30 in the clubhouse. Larry Musgrave woke up the place with lively music and the people danced.

She really cares about her customers and mentioned the two most common questions new couponers have are about stacking coupons and printing online coupons. This is very true. This is also one of the questions I get the most as well. If you have questions or just want to share your savings store, please email Tanya@DivineSavings.com Q: What does Stacking a coupon mean? A: Stacking a coupon is the act of using a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon together on the same item. You can do this at many stores for example: Target, Walgreens, Publix, Winn Dixie and even your drug stores CVS and Walgreens. This is a great way to save more on the items that you need and reduce your grocery budget every month. Buying an item on sale is the first step to saving, but when you can use a manufacturer coupon plus a store coupon on the same item, that is simply Divine Savings. Example: Bread is on sale this week at your grocery store and the store has a coupon for $1 off the bread and you have a manufacturer coupon for $1 off the bread. You can use both coupons on that one package of bread. Many times this will result in free or a savings of 75 percent or more on many items. Q: What does one per person, one perpurchase mean on the coupon? This is a very good question. Deciphering the fine print at the bottom of the coupon can be difficult at best. Manufacturers are starting to put limits in this part of the coupon. Limit four like items per customer simply means that you can only buy four of the same body washes with four like coupons. One per customer, one per purchase simply means that if you want to buy two jars of pasta sauce and use a $1 off one coupon, you will need two coupons for this purchase. You cannot use one coupon to cover both jars. Q: Can I use expired coupons at the store? No, typically you cannot use expired coupons at the store. The only exception to this is if your store has a policy to accept expired coupons up to a certain date. Check with each sto re individually to see what their policy is on expired coupons. You can send your expired coupons to the mi litary where they can be used up to six months pas t the expiration date. You can find addresses on www.DivineSavings.com and www.Coupsfortroops.com.

Questions answered Savings Diva Tanya Senseney DearAbby: Im considering marrying a man who is divorced. We get along great, and I love and trust him. Is it ever appropriate to call the ex and discuss her side of the story? Or should I ask my boyfriend what shed say if I were to contact her? Covering My Bases in California DearCovering Your Bases: If you call the ex, you can count on hearing something negative about your boyfriend or they wouldnt be exes. Also, the things the ex might consider to be flaws may be the qualities you love best about him. That you would say you love and trust your boyfriend, and in the next sentence indicate youre considering a chat with his former wife, makes me wonder how deep your level of trust is. However, if your gut tells you to do some digging, then you should listen to it even if it results in an argument, which it probably will. DearAbby: Im proud of my daughter, Celia. She has a masters degree, a successful career and is soon to be married to a wonderful man. Through three moves my wife and I have cared for our daughters one-ton-plus of stuff, which includes the big dollhouse her grandpa built, her doll collection, high school and college memorabilia, her diaries, dishes for her future home, etc. When she visited, Id ask her to sort through the boxes and throw some things out. Didnt happen. My wife and I have downsized to a condo. The room that was supposed to be my man cave is half-filled with Celias things. It is time! Should I request that our daughter pay for storage, or rent a U-Haul so I can deliver a one-ton-plus wedding gift? Disgruntled Dad in Washington State DearDad: I can think of few things that would destroy the ambiance of a man cave more than a dollhouse. With a successful career, your daughter can afford to pay for a storage unit for her memorabilia. Set a date by which it must be out of your condo, with the understanding that if it isnt, you will dispose of it. You should not have to deliver it to her. You have been patient long enough, and the responsibility is hers. DearAbby: I am a longtime practicing Pagan. Because of the media, Pagans are considered to be evil devil-worshippers instead of the nature-loving people with knowledge of home remedies we are. This makes it difficult in the dating world. Afriend of mine wants to hook me up with a friend of his. When is it appropriate to tell the gentleman that Im a practicing Pagan? I dress like everyone else, so at first glance you wouldnt suspect my religion isnt Christian. Lover of Nature DearLoverof Nature: Nothing compels you and a stranger to get into a discussion about religious beliefs on a first date, but you should mention it when the opportunity arises. If the man seems to be put off by it, suggest he consult patheos.com, an online library on the subject of religions, in which there is a section describing Paganism, its practices and origins. It should make for a stimulating discussion. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Page B12 News-SunWednesday, December 11, 2013 www.newssun.com This weekend, I am in S ebring visiting friends and f amily and hopefully getting t o play some golf with a f ew of my old golfing budd ies and maybe go to 18 E ast for dinner. Last week, I made one of m y favorite meals to make a t home, rosemary roasted c hicken. There is nothing l ike the smell of rosemary, g arlic and chicken coming o ut of the oven in your h ouse. To me, roasting chicken i s like an art. I have to find t he right size bird and really f resh rosemary and, of c ourse, whole cloves of f resh garlic that I chop m yself. The garlic that you can b uy in the market that is c hopped garlic in water has a distinct taste, and I can a lways tell when it was used i nstead of fresh chopped. T ry it yourself and I think y ou will see the difference. W e always buy whole c loves and peel them then t oss them into a food p rocessor and chop them v ery finely. Another hint about garlic i s that handling fresh garlic i t tends to make your hands s mell, but if you rub your h ands on stainless steel w hile cold water is running o ver them, the garlic smell w ill go away. Anyway, making rosem ary roasted chicken is e asy and an excellent comf ort food, if you ask me. I l iked it so much last week t hat I made it twice. Usually t he first night, Lauren and I w ill have the breast and the n ext we will pull the thigh a nd leg meat and toss it into m ixed greens and some sort o f vinaigrette. I have included my recipe f or rosemary roasted whole c hicken and I hope you e njoy. Cheers, Chef.

Yet some of these decadent treats such as southern Lemon Chess Pie from the 1820s, Strawberry Shortcake from the 1850s, or New Yorks Black and White Cookies, first baked up in th e Roaring 1920s have stood the test of time. To celebrate these nostalgic sweets, CanolaInfos Decades of Decadence recipe collection serves up a delicious trip down memor y lane with modern influence by Ellie Krieger, M.S., R.D., host of the Cooking Channels Healthy Appetite. History shaped these desserts and they have stuck around becaus e they are inherently delicious, she says. They were driven by the availability of ingredients in their day, advertising by food companies in womens magazines and advancements in food technology or appl iances. To boost nutrition and keep saturated fat in check, the recipes are updated with heart-healthy ingredients, such as low-fat yogurt, wholegrain flour and canola oil, which has the least saturated fat and most omega-3 fat of all common culinary oils. Try this fresh, healthy update on 1930s Pineapple Upside Down Cake, originally invented to take advantage of canned pineapple, which is kept moist and gooey with canola oil. Take a journey back to the s with Chocolate War Cake, a chocolaty indulgence thats a cinch to make. Or dig into Frozen Grasshopper Pie, a s favorite once home freezers became common, which offers less saturated fat by using canola oil in the crust and reduced-fat ice cream or frozen yogurt in the filling.
