But the propertys water permit e stimated at 38 million gallons per d ay may help provide options, said P atrick Patton, president of the comp anys timber operation, which also h andles agriculture properties. Southern Pine Plantations, founded i n 1984 by Benjamin W. Griffith III in J uliette, Ga., is headquartered in M acon, Ga., with offices in Florida, T exas and Montana, Patton said.

Pattons division handles timber for lumber and pulpwood, agriculture and a ranch in Montana that also serves as a private land for Griffith. The companys commercial division, run by Griffith's son, Travis, manages mineral interests in Texas and both commercial and residential buildings, Patton said. Patton said he and Pat Duane, head of acquisitions and sales in Florida and south Georgia, will look over the hunting, cattle and agricultural leases at Blue Head Ranch as well as research planning and permitting to find ways of increasing profit from the land. The property straddles southwest Highlands and southeast Hardee Counties with approximately 500 acres in its blueberry operation, along with 250 acres set aside for strawberries, of which about 40-100 acres in use, he said.

Community Briefs HCSO seeks info on shooting By SAMANTHAGHOLAR samantha.gholar@newssun.comSEBRING Three people were transported to a local hospital Tuesday afternoon following a two-car collision at Hal McRae Boulevard and U.S. 27. One of the cars involved was a Kia Soul with a South Carolina license plate apparently holding a mother and a daughter. The second vehicle, a Chevrolet Malibu with a Highlands County plate, was also carrying multiple passengers, one of which was also a young person. No victims were able to be identified at the scene. The Avon Park Fire Department, police department and Florida Highway Patrol were on the scene. The fire department confirmed that one young passenger complained of neck pain and was transported, along with the driver of the Chevrolet Malibu, while the other young passenger (traveling in the Kia) rode along with her mother to the hospital. None of the injuries seemed critical at this time, APPDs Chris Watkins said. Clean up shut down the southbound lanes of U.S. 27 for half an hour and re-routed drivers through a shopping plaza. 3 transported after AP collision Katara Simmons/News-Sun Several people were transported to a local hospital Tuesday afternoon following a crash at Hal McRae Boulevard and U.S. 27 in Avon Park.

But unlike the Casey A nthony trial two summ ers earlier, which was a d omestic drama involving a mother accused of k illing her toddler, the m urder trial of George Z immerman in the fatal s hooting of Trayvon M artin tackled two of the t horniest issues conf ronting America: race a nd gun control. For those r easons, the George Z immerman trial was v oted the states story of t he year for 2013 by F lorida newspaper and b roadcast editors. These news items r ounded out the top five s tories of the year: 2.

After a week-long, emotional trial in Vero Beach, he was convicted of two misdemeanor charges of boating under the influence and navigation violations. Judge Robert Pegg sentenced Carlson to a 30-day jail sentence, however the jail time was suspended. Carlson was also sentenced to 18 months of probation and will have to pay fines and court costs totaling approximately $25,000.Marshals shotASebring shoot-out in a quiet Sebring neighborhood on Nov. 19 between U.S. Marshals serving a warrant and drug ring suspects resulted in two marshals being wounded. Neither injury was life threatening. Five suspects were apprehended.Camper Corral burnsOn Aug. 2, the showroom of Camper Corral burned to the ground after a lightning strike. The ensuing blaze drew more than 40 firefighters from all over the county in one of the largest blazes in years. U.S. 27 was shut down in both directions as firefighters had to pull a hose across the highway to the nearest fire hydrant. New leader for SFSCDr. Norman Stephens stepped down as South Florida State College president after 10 years at the helm. After a nationwide search, Dr. Thomas Leitzel was named the colleges fourth president. The 56year-old has a strong background in higher education and was in his former position as president of the Technical College of the Lowcounty in Beaufort, S.C. for five years. Lakes rise, so do weedsWaterfront home owners pressured the state into helping with two problems: Seriously low water levels in lakes Jackson and Lotela, and a bloom of Illinois pond weed on Lake June. An extended study is now underway regarding water levels, and in December sterilized grass carp were released into Lake June. A rainy late spring and summer helped alleviate some of the problems, although the rain caused flooding in Lake Placid and Highway Park.Tanner diesJonny J.T. Tanner, 43, a popular and respected form er DeSoto City volunteer fire fighter, was struck by a car while walking on DeSoto City Road the night of Apr. 5.

Collins then hit the d eputy twice in the head w ith his fists, reports said. The deputy fell to the g round, drew his gun and identified himself as a deputy. Swinton and Collins fled on foot, ignoring commands to stop. Members of the Crime Suppression Team intercepted Collins in a field south of West Pine Street. Collins complied with verbal commands to lie down on the ground, but Swinton kept running. After fleeing through the door of the Avon Park Bingo Hall at 1091 W. Main St., he fled west across U.S. 27 and climbed into the fenced lot behind Williams Pawn and Gun at 112 U.S. 27 S., reports said. Deputy Max Van DHuynslager caught up with him and took him to the ground, reports said. Swinton continued to resist, despite other verbal commands, but DHuynslager was able to get Swinton handcuffed, reports said. The undercover deputy had scraped his elbow and gotten a bruise behind his right ear, reports said. His shirt was ripped in the scuffle and deputies were not able to find the silver necklace that was stolen, reports said. The owner of Wilson Pawn and Gun told deputies also told deputies she wished to pursue charges, reports said. Major David Paeplow, head of the Highlands County Sheriffs Office Investigative Division, said Thursday that its not unusual for migrant workers or people who appear to be migrant workers to be targeted by robbers, given that they usually carry cash, are on foot and have a language barrier. In one recent robbery, three Hispanic men were accosted at 8:29 p.m. Christmas Day, in the area of North Lake Avenue and County Road 17A. They were walking home from visiting a convenience store when they were attacked by five or six black men, Paeplow said. There are reports, he added, that one of the attackers had a baseball bat. The attackers demanded the three mens money and phones, but the men fought back, Paeplow said. In the end, the attackers ran off without robbing them, Paeplow said.

Continued from A1 a nd strawberries require far m ore delicate handling than c itrus. About half of the 1,000 a cres of citrus land is prod ucing right now, Patton s aid. The other half is fall ow, but Patton plans to r eplace the old trees. About 18,000 acres of the p roperty north of State Road 7 0 have a Wetlands Reserve P rogram easement to protect t he Fisheating Creek waters hed, Patton said. Another 4 0,000 acres south of the h ighway are pasture, woods a nd wetlands. We may do more agricult ure expansion there, Patton s aid, alluding to possible r ow crop cultivation. Duane said some operat ions may expand, but that w ould depend on how well c ertain segments perform. Alot will continue as-is. W e may convert (some) to a dditional farm fields, D uane said. Given the companys s olid base in the southeast, p articularly southern G eorgia, the primary agric ultural experience is cotton a nd peanuts. Patton said this i s the companys first foray i nto citrus, strawberries or b lueberries. Luckily, Duane unders tands Floridas water mana gement districts and perm itting process, Patton said. The permitted water rights were a factor in the sale, he said. It will give us the opportunity to do conversion from pasture land to agriculture, Patton said. One thing we did learn in Montana is how important these water rights are. People talk about oil and gas. Water is more important. Even though the land has development rights, Patton said the company has no intention of expanding on those, especially not since the housing bubble burst in 2008. Prior to a year ago, Duane said, the company hadnt owned anything further south than pasture lands near Fort Meade in Polk County. But then the company purchased farmland near LaBelle in Hendry County almost a year ago. Blue Head Ranch was sold by Atlantic Blue Group Inc. in Lake Wales, the company formed from the estate of late Frostproof citrus baron Ben Hill Griffin Jr. The company announced in January that it intended to sell off assets, including 3.7 shares in Alico Inc., a public company in Fort Myers that owned 130,400 acres of mostly agricultural land in Florida. David Coon of Atlantic Blues office in Lake Wales declined to comment Tuesday on details of the sale. Duane said Blue Head Ranch had been on the SPP Land radar long before it was listed for sale in March 2013. The company had looked at a lot of other large tracts near there, as well. Ray Royce, director of the Heartland Agricultural Coalition and executive director of the Highlands County Citrus Growers Association, looks forward to meeting company officials. Its always interesting when a new company buys a parcel of land that large, Royce said. He assumes that the company would want to continue the agricultural operations and some of the recreational activities, especially since the land had conservation easements, but he is quick to point out that he hasnt heard anything definite and has had no chance to talk with company officials or company employees. Its always exciting, in a way, to have a new set of owners because (they) bring a new perspective on the property, Royce said.

What were p roblems on Dec. 31 remain p roblems on Jan. 1. On the other hand, when a y ear passes into history we e xperience an uplifting surge o f hope that next time a round things will be differe nt and better. That hope is essential to t he human spirit, especially d uring times of trial and s trife. It is out of that hope n ew ideas are born and new w ays of seeing open within u s. This new year begins with m any challenges lying b efore us. Refugees around t he world crowd into squalid c amps, driven there by war a nd famine. Innocent people d ie in bombings almost e very day. Children go hung ry. Families cannot afford m edical care. As horrible as this sounds, i t is nothing knew. Situations l ike these have existed t hroughout recorded history. B elieve it or not, we are m aking progress for most people life in 2014 is far safer and easier than it was in 1414 and the coming 365 days provide an opportunity for all of us to do more. So, we continue to hope. We hope Americans regain trust in one another; that we listen and communicate instead of shouting. We hope Americans regain confidence in our system of government; that we recognize different opinions do not make us enemies and that there is common ground. We hope elected officials put the good of the nation before their own interests; that they have faith in their fellow citizens and believe America can not only adjust to this changing world, but thrive in it. We hope we wont fear that change, yet change wisely. We hope we are brave enough to admit mistakes and battle against hypocrisy and special favors. We hope America leads the world by example, not by force; that we are seen once again as a beacon of light a nation of truth and straight dealing; a nation to admire and emulate, not hate or fear. We believe in the United States of America and its people. We have faith in the American spirit as we begin another trip around the sun. So, we continue to hope. A surge of hope N ew Years Day is not a magical m oment. It simply m arks the complet ion of another o rbit around the s un for our planet. Humanitarian Nelson Mandela. A ctor Peter OToole. Novelist Tom C lancy. Interviewer David Frost. A ctress Julie Harris. Senator Harry B yrd Jr. They are among the very famous w ho left us in 2013. But we also o we goodbyes to many others w hose passing might have escaped o ur attention.

Author Barbara Park created the irrepressible kindergartner Junie B. Jones, who appeared in 29 books that together sold over 55 million copies. Park was 66. When Dick Van Dyke found hed have to dance in Mary Poppins, he requested Marc Breaux as choreographer. Breaux created such terrific dance numbers that he was hired for The Sound of Music and other memorable films. Breaux was 89. Don Daily never finished high school, but he taught himself to program computers. In the 1980s he began creating chess software and Komodo was the most successful. When Komodo 6 came out in October Daily told fans he was dying of leukemia. He was 57. MITlibrarian Ann Wolpert helped create one of the earliest open access programs for online learning. Then, in 2009 she developed the Open Access Mandate under which more than 150 universities provide access to research documents. She was 70. Joseph Gomer was one of the last surviving members of the Tuskegee Airmen, the elite squad of black fighter pilots in World War II. Gomer, who flew 68 combat missions, was 93.

She was 86. Nowadays shes well known to viewers of the Showtime hit Masters of Sex. Virginia Johnson and her partner William Masters pioneered research into human sexuality. She was 88. By the time New Yorker Evelyn Kozak died in August she had been declared the oldest Jewish person in history. She was 113. As a boy, Joseph Unanues special skill was bottling olives. The family business became Goya Foods, the nations largest Hispanic-owned food purveyor. Unanue, given the Bronze Star for bravery in World War II, was 88.

Eydie Gorme met Steve Lawrence in 1953 on the Tonight Show and they married a few years later. They charmed audiences as a sweetheart vocal team, with hits such as Blame It on the Bossa Nova.

The Florida Department of Elder Affairs, in partnership with the West Central Florida Area Agency on Aging, Inc., heads a health insurance assistance program in which volunteers provide one-on-one cou nseling and information to Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers. Appropriately called SHIN E (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders), the programs mission is to provide free and unbiased health insurance counseling through a de dicated network of volunteers, empowering Florida seniors to make informed health care choices. SHINE gives volunteers the opportunity to learn new skills through professional training programs, to meet new people during outreach and partnership, and to acquire healthcare related knowledge that can be applied to their own lives. The SHINE Program also offers a unique volunteer experience that engages individuals in their communities. To continue the programs success in serving Highlands County seniors, West Central Florida Area Agency on Agin g, Inc. needs more volunteers to join in its efforts.

By BARRYWILNER Associated PressIt didnt take long. Barely 12 hours after the N FLs regular season ended, f ive head coaches were u nemployed. Fired on Monday were W ashingtons Mike S hanahan, Detroits Jim S chwartz, Minnesotas Leslie F razier and Tampa Bays G reg Schiano. The Cleveland Browns d idnt even wait that long, d ismissing Rob Chudzinski o n Sunday night after just o ne season on the job. Shanahan, who won two S uper Bowls in Denver in the 1 990s, spent four seasons w ith the Redskins and was 2 4-40. Frazier had a little more t han three seasons with the V ikings to compile an 18-331 mark, and Schwartz c oached the Lions for five s easons, finishing 29-52. Schiano only got two years w ith the Buccaneers, going 1 1-21. He had three years and $9 m illion left on his contract. Tampa Bay also fired gene ral manager Mark Dominik. Its tough for the players to see your coaches go. You never want to see anybody get fired, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. Me personally, I havent had any, consistently, in my career. Third head coach, going on my fifth year and three head coaches. Add up everybody, itll be six Dline coaches. The Buccaneers, who also have fired the likes of Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden, hired Schiano out of Rutgers in 2012 and went 6-4 before losing five of their last six games. They dropped their first eight games this season and finished 4-12. One coach allegedly on the hot seat was retained: Rex Ryan, who has one more year on his contract, is staying with the New York Jets after a surprising 8-8 record in his fifth season at the helm. While some of the fired coaches might have seen it coming, Chudzinski certainly didnt despite going 4-12 and losing his final seven games and 10 of 11. I was shocked and disappointed to hear the news that I was fired, said Chudzinski, who grew up a Browns fan. I am a Cleveland Brown to the core, and always will be. It was an honor to lead our players and coaches, and I appreciate their dedication and sacrifice. I was more excited than ever for this team, as I know we were building a great foundation for future success. As the coaching searches begin, agents will float the names of their clients Penn States Bill OBrien seems to be the hottest candidate and has interviewed for Houstons vacancy. The Texans (2-14), who own the top choice in Mays draft after losing their final 14 games, released coach Gary Kubiak late in the season. Whoever gets hired in each place will face mammoth rebuilding projects. Overall, the six teams seeking new coaches went 24-71-1. Shanahan had one season remaining on a five-year contract worth about $7 million a season. He blamed salary cap restraints for part of the Redskinscollapse from NFC East champion in 2012 to 313 and eight consecutive losses. Washington was hit with a $36 million salary cap penalty over two seasons for dumping salaries into the 2010 uncapped season, and Shanahan said it prevented the team from pursuing free agents it had targeted. But his real undoing, along with the poor records in three of his four seasons, was a contentious relationship with star quarterback Robert Griffin III. RG3 did not speak with the media on Monday. Frazier took over for Brad Childress in Minnesota for the final six games of 2010. He got the Vikings to the playoffs as a wild card last season, riding an MVPyear from running back Adrian Peterson. But he never solved the Vikingsquarterback situation three QBs started in 2013 and the defense, Fraziers specialty, ranked 31st overall and against the pass. Its a harsh business, safety Harrison Smith said. As a player, we all love coach Frazier, as a coach, as a man. You cant meet a bet ter guy. And also as a playe r, we didnt make enough play s on the field. So you just fee l like you let him down a littl e bit. The Lions were considere d an underachieving team the last two years under Schwartz. After a 6-3 start this year in a division where the Packers and Bears lost their starting quarterbacks for lengthy periods, Detroit fell apart down the stretch. It lost six of its last seven He had two years and almost $12 million remainin g on his deal, signed after the Lions hired him to fix a team that went 0-16 in 2008. From where we were in 2008 to where we are now its a big difference, quarte rback Matthew Stafford said We owe a lot of that to him Hes a really smart guy and helped us get to where we are. Obviously, we didnt w in as many games as we neede d to or as we should have this year. By BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING The 2014 Sports Car Club of Americas U.S. Majors Tour Schedule will be the headliner this weekend with the SCCAs Eastern Conference opener at the Sebring International Raceway. At one time known as the Nationals, this years event now has been classified as the season opener for the Eastern Conference Majors Tour. There are no longer National races in SCCA Club Racing, there are only Majors races and Regional races. As of Monday, SCCA officials reported there had been 347 entries on the entry list a vast improvement over last years participation. The convergence of SCCAmembers to Sebring comes at the start of the calendar year, when it simply is too cold to go racing at many locations north of the Sunshine State. The January event represents one of the two largest SCCAraces held at Sebrings historic circuit each year the other being Novembers Turkey Trot. The event will have a slightly different format for 2014. With slightly shorter, 30 minute sprint races set for Saturday. The adjustment was made to allow for seven race groups. Sunday has quick warmup sessions in the in the morning, with seven races to be run the balance of the day. All races count for full SCCApoints. The weekend will be stacked with drivers. Making their first appear ance since winning National Championships at the SCCA Runoffs in September are: E Production champ Greg Ira, Daryl Wills in his Formula Mazda, Formula Atlantic driver Sedat Yelkin, Spec Miata winner Jim Drago and Brian Schofield in his Spec By TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondent Homecoming king, hono rs student, football star, m ost athletic and prom k ing are only a few items o n Larry Scotts impressive l ist of accomplishments at S ebring High School. With such an outstanding h igh school career, it c omes as no surprise that S cott has continued to be e xtremely successful at his n ext challenge in life as a f ootball player at Miles C ollege. Miles College is a priv ate school located in F airfield, AL, with the G olden Bears sports teams c ompeting at the NCAA D ivision II level in the S outhern Intercollegiate A thletic conference. One of the benefits of g oing to a smaller universit y is that underclassmen o ften get to contribute to t he team early on, as Scott c an attest to. I was blessed to be able t o start one game against L ane College, said Scott. I got some playing time in a rotation in all the other g ames. The game in which Scott s tarted against Lane C ollege was a victory for t he Golden Bears senior n ight on their home turf in Fairfield, with a final score of 38-26. In his first season at Miles Scott said that he primarily played defensive end. The Golden Bears had a successful season with a final record of six wins and four losses, going 6-1 in conference play. The stellar conference record earned Scott and the Golden Bears a spot in the conference championship on Saturday, Nov. 16. We played Albany State in Atlanta, said Scott. But we came up short of the win 17-14. Football is perhaps one of the most time consuming sports for a college athlete to participate in, but Scott did not let that affect News-Sun Wednesday, January 1, 2014 BSection Sports NASCAR This WeekPAGEB3 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun A von Parks Alfred Brown soars toward the basket in Saturdays title game of the Taveniere Tournament.

The historic track annually draws cars from across the country that want to get out of the cold and snow and head to Florida to race. SCCA hits SIR Friday By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Saturday set up for some very good story lines in the last round of the 35th Annual Jim Taveniere Tournament in the Sebring gym. Avon Park was playing in the title game against a Liberty team it had topped in the preseason and Blue Streak head coach Princeton Harris would be facing his mentor, Deron Collins, and the Lakeland Dreadnaughts. But those story lines turned out to have less than happy endings. The day began with an undermanned Lake Placid squad falling to Frostproof 65-36, though the team showed more resiliency as it awaits the return of injured players Anfernee Munnings, Nick Tuason and Scott Colley. Then came the anticipated match-up of Sebring and Lakeland, with former Streak coach Collins facing off with Harris, whom he hired onto his staff. But as it turned out, the old sage taught his former student a lesson in an 85-45 Dreadnaught win. It certainly was a teaching moment, Harris said afterward. Sebring actually was hanging with Lakeland in the early going, down just three after one period of play, 2017, and within 31-26 in the final minute of the first half. But suddenly, like a onetwo combination that sent the Streaks reeling, backto-back three pointers from the Dreadnaughts doubled the lead to a 12point margin at the break. We just never recovered after that, Harris said. It was tough, we just couldnt find our rhythm. Our starters didnt really play much Friday, most barely got 10 minutes, so that didnt help us for th is game. One starter who has stepped up in recent games is senior Terrell Williams who lead the Streaks with 1 3 for the game. But once the Dreadnaughts got Sebring back on itsheels, it didnt let up and went for the knockout. A28-12, third-quarter margin ballooned the lead t o 65-38, and it continued to grow early in the fourth, which soon called for the running clock to put this on e out of itsmisery. This could be good for us heading into the second half of the season, Harris said. Hard knocks for Highlands in Taveniere Princeton Harris Sebring head coachIt certainly was a teaching moment.

After three tough days, Avon Park now stands 12-4 overall, and still with a district-leading 5-1 record.

Scott is majoring in politic al science at Miles. Its not that hard to jugg le class and football, but y ou have to be good at time m anagement. Distractions in college are a whole different breed than i n high school, but Scott s ays that, being away from h ome wasnt a problem. As with any new experie nce, the born and raised Sebring boy says that, getting adjusted to my new home took some time. Helping with the transition to both a new state and college athletics were other Sebring High School graduates that have gone on to play football at Miles. Scott joined 2012 Sebring graduate Anthony Powell, who Larry says was, my mentor as far as helping me with the process of football and school. Ezell Gammage is another Sebring High graduate from the class of 2013 who attends Miles and looks to play after taking a medical redshirt this season. It is always good to go into a new atmosphere with allies, and Scott agrees that, Having other SHS players up there helped a lot. As Scott enjoys the rest of Christmas break at home in Sebring he is preparing to return to Miles for the spring semester to continue his education and athletic career. With three more years to go, there is no doubt that Scott will continue to demonstrate his ability to succeed just as he did during his four years at Sebring High School.

It was interesting asto the number of different plans, but all were looking forward to happy times and memories. After the KOPS and TOPS said their respective pledges, roll call was given by Karen Goodwin and Jean Ottoway was the best loser. Ottoways name was also drawn for the travel prize, which means shehas three more weeks to lose to claim the mystery prize. Carolyn Mead gave an interesting program on training the brain to get back on track to lose weight. She suggested limiting screen time.(Turn off the TVand computer.) Get more sleep, try changing one thing you do, and do something nice for yourself that is not food related.There were other suggestions to help get to a ideal weight. The No-No this week is pizza and the Yess are green beans and sweet potatoes.Members believe in making it easy on ourselves as it was Christmas week. That means a double fine for a club gain.

They add so much to t he Christmas spirit and we e njoyed returning from c hurch and viewing the p eaceful beauty. Several from the park cele brated the holidays with c ruises, some residents vent ured north for family time ( no envy from us southerners w ith the wintry blasts north), s ome were fortunate to have f amily visitors and the r emainder just spent a b lessed Christmas with f riends and family here. A pproximately 40 folks e njoyed the festive party on D ec. 21 at the clubhouse. T hank you Wendy and crew f or sharing the Christmas s pirit. December has not been k ind to several residents who h ave suffered serious illness a nd hospitalization stays. W e are thankful they are h ome and in various stages o f recuperation, although s ome anticipate more issues a head. Bud Farmer, Alan G rosman, Ruth Lee, Joyce G lassbrook, Jackie Wilson h ave all been hospitalized a nd are home but continue in o ur prayers. While we dont recomm end this, we commend J ackie Wilsons stamina in d riving himself from B righton to Highlands R egional during his illness.Dwaine Lowe suffered a fall and some nasty bruises at home requiring some neighborly assistance for Shirley to help him get upright. I just learned Gisela Bukantis had fallen while on their Christmas cruise and suffered a broken foot plus stitches in her head and some bruises. She was very complimentary to the doctors on board, stating they did a great job caring for her, but needless to say, activities were and are limited. Calvin Williams is scheduled for surgery mid-January. We trust the new year brings better health days to all. Awelcome back from northern New York to Alan Roberts and Gary Amell. Gail Freisen is traveling in from Wisconsin and we trust will be arriving before this article appears. What a relief it must be to reach sunny Sebring away from the nasty winter days. I just visited tenants June and Chuck Austin from Indiana who are occupying Wendy Herveys previous home on Springtime. Good friends in Lake Placid led them to Town and Country.The Austins have camped all over the country visiting their six children but this is their first permanent home in Florida. They are very pleasant folks and we trust they enjoy our park. Congratulations to Julia and Paul Henneberry as recipients of House of the Month for January. The Homeowners Association meeting will be Monday, Jan. 6 with election of officers and inductees commencing their duties immediately after. Wendy Johnson has planned an ambitious schedule for January. Park breakfast is Jan. 4 from 8-9 a.m. featuring eggs, sausage gravy/biscuits and beverages. Mens breakfast out is at Platters II on Wednesday, Jan. 8. The womens luncheon is at the Jacaranda in Avon Park on the same date. Anew event, Fashion Show/Luncheon, is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 16. Lunch is at 11:30 a.m. with the fashion show to follow. Eight park residents will model clothing from Bon Worth and the Dress Barn. Sounds like a fun time! Listen up, Sebring:Parkwide garage sales will be held on Saturday, Jan. 25 opening at 8 a.m. Those involved need to contact Wendy for permits. There will be a pizza party after for residents at 5 p.m. at the clubhouse. And finally, Jan 29 is a pot luck supper at the clubhouse at 5:30 p.m. Its good there are 31 days in January! All park residents are welcome to participate in the daily events occurring as well as special planned activities. Come out to Highlands County Fairgrounds on Jan. 3-4 to celebrate the BBQ Festival sponsored by the Sebring Firemen Inc. Sounds like an exciting event with plenty of good food, music, a 5K run and a classic car show. Have you heard about pickleball? Apparently its not new but an active game in the area with several courts around Sebring. Tanglewood states they need more courts to accommodate the interest. January birthdays include: Shirley Lowe, Carl Gibbons, Helen and George Dambrowitz, Julia Henneberry, Bill Mattson, Larry Garbert, Tom Bogacazyk. Claudia McManus and Jerry Shipley. Perhaps we can use as a guide for 2014: Kind hearts are gardens; kind thoughts are the roots; kind words are the flowers; kind deeds are the fruits. Happy New Year. LAKE PLACID We went caroling through the park, all 42 voices. What a job it was, singing for all our shut-ins. It was also a Christmas parade as we drove through the park with 20 decorated golf carts. We did do more than just make a joyful noise as people said how good our singing sounded. Everyone brought something to eat to the clubhouse, so after our singing we had a table of food to choose from to go with our hot chocolate or fruit punch. Dee Peterson was in charge of the caroling. The Monday morning coffee was set up and hosted by Richard and Delores Peterson. They served Christmas butter cookies and a nut cake that Dee made. Peggy Sue Teague was the emcee. She called on Carol Noel for her Sunshine report. Bob Peters is home; Lu Aston is in Balmoral Assisted Living; Allen Frye and Laura Bailie are in Lake Placid Health Care Center; Verna Strutzman is in the hospital; and all our friends would like our visits. Fred Herrit has passed away and wed like to give our condolence to his family. Vickie Echelberry thanked all 11 people that donated to the Big Red Blood Mobile. Im sure that all the donors enjoyed receiving the nice long-sleeved T-shirts. Then Vickie introduced the couple, Sammy and Dana Telesco, from STR8 UP Youth Ministry on Main Avenue in Lake Placid. They coordinate the spiritual and physical growth of the youth. They have been 40 and 65 students there after school. They thanked us for our donations. Peggy Sue Teague read the names of the birthdays and wedding anniversaries for the week, but only Bob and Suzanne Bechtel, and Raymond and Delores Woodruff were present. Marilyn Cromer played the piano while we sang Happy Anniversary to the couples. Starting in the new year, the Pancake Breakfast is on Jan. 4, Inky Fingers is Jan. 6 and is always the first Monday of each month, and darts is always on Tuesday, starting Jan. 7. Tuesday Ladies Coffee on Dec. 24 was made by Marilyn Cromer and she held the meeting and announced the homeowners meeting on Jan. 6, which will be election of candidates for the board of directors for the HOA. The candidates are Phil Bennett, Tom Hoover, Alice Fazio and Louis Wackershauser. The Red Hats will have their first luncheon in the new year on Jan. 9. Ann Wolf was a new member and we were happy to see her. The Luminaries Christmas Eve were beautiful as they always are. Driving through the park you feel like youre driving down lit runways. We have around 2,500 luminaries. Diane Bennett has headed this committee for years and is now turning it over to Delores Peterson. The Christmas dinner on Christmas Day was enjoyed by many. We walked into the clubhouse and all the tables were set with beautiful centerpieces. About 160 tickets were sold and it looked like they were all present. Marilyn Cromer said grace and we all said the Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag. Mary Sue Teague called numbers for tables to be served. Joan Rau headed the committee for this big dinner. There were many helpers and a big thank you for all the people that helped in any way to make this evening the success that it was. Dont ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if youre not willing to move your feet.

Try to recreate that atmosphere at home by setting the tablewith some linens, flowers, candles, a nice set of dishes and beautifulglassware.Sexy menu itemsWeve all heard that oysters are good for spicing things up, if youknow what Im saying, but they arent the only sexy foods out there. Asparagus is a natural aphrodisiac for men and women, so be sure toadd some to the menu. Figs have been eaten to spice things up between couples for hundredsof years. Chiles are also known to turn things up a notch or two in theboudoir. The capsaicin in spicy foods raise the heart rate and triggerthe release of endorphins. Chocolate-dipped strawberries. Its cliche for a reason, people.Dress for the occasionChange out of the yoga pants and put on that killer little black dressand a sassy apron. Wear your heels while youre cooking (or beingcooked for!). Put on your favorite music, pour a glass of wine andhave fun with it. Reconnect with your honey over the chopping and peeling. Serve your fancy meal in courses if youd like to draw out theevening. Sit down to your salads while your main course cooks away.After your main course, clean the kitchen before serving dessert. What you do after dessert is up to yourselves. Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of 'Body Clutter' and the Saving Dinner series.

DearReaders: Welcome t o 2014! It seems like the w orld spins faster every y ear. With each new year c omes our chance for a new b eginning. It's an opportunit y to discard destructive old h abits and create healthy n ew ones. With that in mind, I will share my oftenr equested list of New Years r esolutions that were adapted b y my mother, Pauline P hillips, from the original c redo of Al-Anon: Just for Today: I will live t hrough this day only. I will n ot brood about yesterday or o bsess about tomorrow. I w ill not set far-reaching g oals or try to overcome all o f my problems at once. I k now that I can do somet hing for 24 hours that w ould overwhelm me if I h ad to keep it up for a lifet ime. Just for Today: I will be h appy. I will not dwell on t houghts that depress me. If m y mind fills with clouds, I w ill chase them away and f ill it with sunshine. Just for Today: I will a ccept what is. I will face r eality. I will correct those t hings that I can correct and a ccept those I cannot. Just for Today: I will i mprove my mind. I will r ead something that requires e ffort, thought and concent ration. I will not be a ment al loafer. Just for Today: I will m ake a conscious effort to b e agreeable. I will be kind a nd courteous to those who c ross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking. Just for Today: I will refrain from improving anybody but myself. Just for Today: I will do something positive to improve my health. If Im a smoker, Ill quit. If I am overweight, I will eat healthfully if only for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if its only around the block. Just for Today: I will gather the courage to do what is right and take the responsibility for my own actions. And now, Dear Readers, I would like to share an item that was sent to me by I.J. Bhatia, a reader from New Delhi, India: Dear Abby: This year, no resolutions, only some guidelines. The Holy Vedas say: Man has subjected himself to thousands of selfinflicted bondages. Wisdom comes to a man who lives according to the true eternal laws of nature. The prayer of St. Francis (of which there are several versions) contains a powerful message: Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy. Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; To be understood, as to understand; To be loved, as to love; For it is in giving that we receive, It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. And so, Dear Readers, may this new year bring with it good health, peace and joy to all of you. Love, Abby Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Did you make any New Years resolutions? In almost everyones top 5 resolutions is getting organized in some way or the desire at least to be more organized. The same holds true for couponing. Being frugal is the easy part; the organization that comes with being frugal is the key to your success. 1. Getting your Sunday paper is a must. In a digital age, newspapers are and will remain your No. 1 source for manufacturer coupons. Savvy Savers Tip: If you are a family of 2-plus it is best to get a paper for every member living under your roof. I am a family of five and get a minimum of six Sunday papers each week simply for the coupons. (One for reading and the sales ads, the other 5-plus for couponing). 2. Clip your coupons each week. Eighty-five percent of what is in your Sunday paper this week will be on sale in your area. The other products will go on sale before the coupon expires. It is not the simple act of clipping a coupon that saves you money, the magic happens when you pair the coupon with a sale. By doing this you can save 50 percent or more. 3. Find a coupon organization system that works best for you. Many couponers, including me, use a binder to keep and organize coupons in. There are many options for you and depending on your desire and personality you will want one that you can keep up. Coupon wallets similar to what you would find at the dollar store, coupon box, zip lock bags and envelopes are other ways to organize coupons. 4. Before you head to the checkout line, take a minute to make sure your coupons are easily accessible and ready for the cashier. This will help make your trip easier at the end. 5. Remember that big savings will not happen overnight but if you are consistent with it, you will save every time you shop. After four weeks of consi stent shopping (weekly or bi-weekly depending on your budget) you will save 50-75 percent. Tip for shopping with kids: Shopping with little ones can be stressful at times and add couponing to that and it can be a recipe for disaster, but with a little extra planning you can save 50-75 percent every time you shop. I typically shop with my 6-, 11and 16-year-olds, but have bee n couponing/shopping with them since they were all newborns. If a binder is what you like most, simply put that in the back of the buggy and raise it up on top of your groceries as you shop. My house is always in dis array but my coupon bind er looks like Martha Stewart sprinkled some of her organization magic over i t. Yours will too.

Blackeyed pea salad Family FeaturesSometimes even the smallest changes can offer big results to your overall well-being. When maintaining or pursuing a healthful eating routine, adopting a balanced approach is essential for success. Rather than restricting yourself, strive instead to make small steps toward a healthier lifestyle. Afew simple changes to your daily routine can eventually turn into lasting habits that are far more enjoyable and easie r to maintain. As an expert on the positive impact of small changes, Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Keri Gans offers these helpful tips: Create a healthy eating schedule Food is fuel. In order to keep energized throughout the day it is important not to skip meals. Grab a midday snack, like The Laughing Cow Light White Cheddar flavor with whole grain crackers, to help you overcome that all too familiar late afternoon slump. These cheese s are a must-have for your January shopping lists. Eat the right kinds of fats Alittle healthy yet tasty fat, such as 1/4 of an avocado or a handful of almonds, can go a long way. It can provide flavor, satiety and be good for your body, espe cially your heart.Share food, fun with advance planning To help ensure healthier choices are made when dining out, be sure to grab a quick, tasty snack to tide you over before your meal. Some great snacking options include a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss flavor with pear slices, a low-sugar granola bar o r 1/4 cup of roasted edamame. The less hungry you are, the easier it is to stay on track. For more great snacking tips, visit www.thelaughingcow.com. Enjoy the foods you are craving Want that slice of pizza or piece of chocolate? Go fo r it. To maintain a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle, try and eat well the majority of time, but make sure you leave room for some of your favorite indulgences. If you don t allow yourself to enjoy these foods on occasion, you might always be craving them, which can lead to overeating.Make savory swaps for old standbys It is never necessary to eliminate the flavors you lov e, instead learn to enjoy them in a healthier way. Are you in the mood for nachos but trying to eat a little better? Swap the high-fat cheese and greasy fried chips for a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle with a serving of baked tortilla chips. With eight delicious varieties to choose from, this cheese is the perfect snack to satisfy your cravings in the New Year. So, enjoy all the flavors and fun of life by adopting a small-step approach toward eating well. Each tiny change is a step in the right direction to a happier, more satisfied you. Easy tips for a deliciously balanced eating routine Chilean blueberry, butternut squash and quinoa salad Serves: 6 1 pound butternut squas h, peeled, seeded and cubed 4 tablespoons olive o il, divided 1 cup raw quinoa, rinse d well 2 cups water 2 tablespoons lemon juice 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 4 Green onions, thinly slice d 1 1/2 cups Chilean bluebe rries 3 cups baby arugula Preheat oven to 450 F. In large bowl, toss squash with 1 tablespoon of oil. Spread on rimmed baking sheet; bake until tender, about 22 minutes ; let cool. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, bring quinoa and water to a boil; simmer for 15 20 minutes. Remove from hea t and cover; let stand 5 minutes Fluff with fork; cool. In small bowl, whisk togeth er remaining olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper; set asid e. In large bowl combine squash, green onions, blueberries, arugula and quinoa. Drizzle with dressing; toss to combine. Note: Quinoa should be eas y to find at your local supermar ket but if not, couscous makes a perfect substitute. Blueberries are natures perfect little superfood, and now these little blue powerhouses are available in grocery stores throughout the winter months. Fresh blueberries are natural cancer-fighters. In addition to a healthy dose of cancer-fighting antioxidants, fresh blueberries pack enough vitamins, fiber and phytochemicals to rank them high on the list of superfoods all by themselves. Heart-healthy, theyre also full of vitamin C and fiber, making them the ideal go-to fruit to pack great nutrition into every meal. Supplies of these amazing fruits are plentiful all winter long, courtesy of the growers and exporters of Chile, the southern hemispheres largest producer of fresh blueberries.Recipe for resolutions So, if your New Years resolution is to eat healthier, this recipe for Blueberry, Butternut Squash and Quinoa Salad will help you keep it. Not just one, but two of natures superfoods fresh blueberries and quinoa team up with butternut squash to create a salad thats packed with protein, bursting with sweet and tangy flavor and colorful enough to brighten the drab grays of winter. The protein in this healthful, lowcalorie salad comes from quinoa, widely considered a grain but really a type of seed more closely related to spinach and chard. As a significant source of protein, just one cup of quinoa has a full gram more than is found in an egg. Butternut squash is widely available during the winter months and is not only sweet and tasty, but contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol, so its an ideal food for folks on special diets. Whats more, its a good source of potassium, magnesium and fiber, and an excellent source of vitamins Aand C. Put all three of these core ingredients together and you have a winter salad that is super nutritious and yummy.
