The Avon Park City Council vot ed at its last meeting to ask city resi dents who have an interest in serving to contact city hall. The question came up when Charles Devlin, president of Devtech Sales Inc., told the city council he believes the city hasnt had enough commercial growth thanks to a lack of curb appeal. Main Street and Lake Avenue look wonderful, Devlin said. It just hasnt caught on throughout the city. He said littering is a problem. Hes taken a 50-gallon garbage bag along Lake Avenue at Bell Street near the Avon Park Middle School and lled it up within a one-block area. He also said he has seen blue tarps still used to cover roofs, out side walls in disrepair, and fences that may not have been per mitted made up of chicken wire, hog wire and tarps. With dropping property values from the recession, he said the city has a whole group of homeowners who shouldnt own Lack of curb appeal hurting Avon Park?Council asks for interest in code enforcement board Katara Simmons/News-SunGarbage piles waiting to be collected from State Street in Avon Park show some homeowners trying to get some spring cleaning done. City resident Charles Devlin has told the Avon Park City Council that other neighborhoods have tarps on roofs and substandard fencing that reduces curb appeal to residents or businesses that would otherwise move to the city. The City Council is asking for residents to volunteer to see if they have interest in reviving a code enforcement board.

FHP does not have results on whether or not alcohol was involved. The other driver Harold W. Holthaus, 80, of Sidney, Ohio was charged with failing to yield the right of way. Reports state that at 11:21 a.m. Sunday, the Yankas were riding a 2011 Kawasaki southbound on U.S. 27 in the inside lane. A 2001 Ford van was stopped on Lake Mirror Drive at the stop sign for U.S. 27.

O.W. Woody Woodard, president of the Highlands Chapter; George Frey, sec retary; and Rod Dilling, chairman of the Public Safety Awards Committee. who recommended this team for commendations, were on hand to present the certicates. The com mendations came as a result of the proactive and successful operation in Avon Park recently. In an effort to stop the numerous robberies of migrant workers in Avon Park, Highlands County sheriffs deputies initiated an undercover operation where one of the team members, Deputy Alfredo Campos, posed as a mi grant worker. Deputy Campos soon became a victim of the robbers and actually sus tained minor injuries as the suspects pulled a chain from his neck dur ing the crime. Two suspects were arrested in the sting and were charged with robbery and resist ing an ofcer without violence. Other members of the Crime Suppression Team that received commen dations were Sgt. Jamie Davidson, Sgt. Mike Abell, Deputy Max Van DHuynslager, Deputy Ken Jorgensen and Depu ty Yancy Plair. The Sons of the Ameri can Revolution are an or ganization made up of people who are direct lin eal descendants of members of George Washingtons Army and who fought in the American Revolution in the 1700s. They are a non-political and not-for-prot group that encourages patrio tism and national values. The National Society of the Sons of the Amer ican Revolution has approximately 2,800 members nationally.

TALLAHASSEE (AP) The Senate passed a bill that would make it ille gal for insurance companies to deny policies or charge higher rates solely based on gun ownership. The bill passed Tues day on a 36-3 vote. Supporters have said some insurance compa nies would prefer not to insure gun owners and others have a different set of rates. They want to make it illegal to discrim inate against a citizen who is exercising their constitutional right to own rearms.

BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING The January unemployment numbers for the state of Florida have been re leased and it appears to be a rather mixed bag. For Highlands County, of the estimated 40,546 people in the workforce, there were 2,980 report edly off the job. That translated to a 7.3 percent unemploy ment gure here. It was a few tenths of a per cent up from Decembers even 7 percent, but down from January 2013 when Highlands had 8.9 percent of the labor force said to be out of work. Part of that appears to be the impact of holi day hires who were let go after Christmas or after New Years, said Donna Doubleday, executive di rector of CareerSource Heartland. We generally see a bit of a spike in De cember because of those seasonal hires. The state of Florida showed an estimated 6.3 percent unemployment rate, which was season ally adjusted to 6.1 per cent. The states joblessness rate was projected downward slightly from Decembers seasonally adjusted 6.3 percent and January 2013 when the number was an even 8 percent. State ofcials say get ting Januarys employ ment gures to the public so late is the result of a process called bench marking. That process is done each March by the U.S. Department of Labors Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Florida Department of Econom ic Opportunity, which makes a number of revi sions to the states histor ical data. What happens right now is that they recalcu late by looking at the actual gures based upon information from em ployers using the taxbased system, she said. That gives a truer gure. The January numbers re ally reect that. Because of the process and new information, Februarys numbers are set to be announced at the end of next week.Local unemployment numbers up and down M C Y K

A4 | NEWS-SUN | W ednesday, March 19, 2014 www.newssun.com NEWS-SUNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSWhat does a community do to protect itself from individu als who are mentally ill and in need of medical intervention and pose a hazard to themselves or oth ers? Two recent incidents make this an urgent question in Highlands County. Mary Musselman, 81, was arrest ed in January when she would not, or could not, stop feeding black bears on her property. It was a difcult situ ation. Because bears lose their fear of humans when they are fed, they will approach houses in search of food. This creates a risk of harm to people, so friendly bears are killed. Musselman, however, is reported to be struggling with Alzheimers dis ease. Many people do not think she should be incarcerated, as they feel she cant be held responsible for her behavior Then there is the case of Floyd Gene Hodge, 31, who was shot and killed by sheriffs deputies March 9 when he refused to put his AK-47 down af ter shooting dozens of rounds into his neighbors homes. Hodges wife had been afraid of his behavior and had asked for help. On March 9, Sheriff Susan Benton said, How do we intervene with people? The family feared it would end up like this. In fact, the state has attempted to deal with just these sorts of situa tions. In 1971, the legislature passed the Florida Mental Health Act. This statute, known as the Baker Act, pro vides legal procedures for mental health examination and treatment. If individuals are a danger to them selves or others, they may be ordered to a Florida Department of Children and Families designated receiving facility for an observation and ex amination period of 72 hours (three days). The need for this kind of interven tion facility is growing greater. According to DCF statistics, between 2002 and 2011, there was a statewide increase of 50 percent in involuntary exams. In 2011, 150,000 individuals were Baker Acted. The only designated facility in our area is Peace River in Bartow. It serves Highlands, Hardee and Polk counties with a 30-bed capacity. According to its website, Peace River served 11,234 individuals in 2010. Not all those in dividuals were at Peace River as the result of a Baker Act, but there isnt al ways room. It is also inconvenient to Highlands County and impossible to reach with out private transportation. For years, the sheriffs ofce has wanted a DCF designated receiving facility with a crisis stabilization unit opened here. We strongly agree. One reason an elderly, inrm wom an ended up in jail is because there was nowhere else safe to put her. One reason a young man, driven by de mons, was shot and killed is there had been no place for his family to go for help. It is time to provide the mentally ill and their families crisis intervention. Everyone is safer.No help for mentally illSoup Up The Arts a successSebring High Schools 12th annual Soup-Up the Arts fundraising event held by the schools Art Club and National Art Honor Society was a record breaking one. The recipients for this year are the local families of Zak Taylor and Mary Ann Gold burne.

Mary Ann is a 14-year breast cancer survi vor who is now battling cancer in both lungs while car ing for six grandchildren and attending chemothera py sessions. The event is set up and run by the students, who spent the months prior making ceramic bowls and decorations. The students plan every detail of the fun draiser from food, themes, entertainment, and the event itself.

Budgeting decisions? I make $36,000 a year. The best deal I could nd on ObamaCare, with subsidies, is $350 a month. That is a hefty 10 percent of my in come! Like President Obama recently said at a Spanishspeaking town hall, all you have to do is prioritize your budget better. Ill bet if we look at your cable bill, cell phone bill and other things you are spending on, we will nd your priorities are not good. My priorities! Do you know how little $36,000 is? Have you seen the price of food lately? Produce is so high, the wife and kids and I are going without salad many nights. Maybe you ought to plant a garden and grow your own. That would be the en vironmentally responsible thing to do. Our electricity costs are soaring, too the EPA is driving that by writing new rules that are hurting coalred electric plants. Were doing that for your own good. Besides, it isnt the governments fault that you probably hoarded in efcient incandescent light bulbs that waste heat and burn more energy. Peo ple like you cause your own problems. Gasoline prices are out of sight. Federal gasoline taxes arent helping and the gov ernment is not letting reneries expand. With global demand for gas growing, prices will keep going up. We cant afford gas on my sala ry now. You are driving an SUV, arent you? For your own good, the government bailed out GM and lost $10 billion in taxpayer money and promoted environmentally friendly electric and hybrid cars in the process. They get way better mileage than your SUV. We cant afford a Chevy Volt. Are you listening? We cant afford any of the things our expanding federal gov ernment is foisting on us least of all ObamaCare. You promised to make health in surance less expensive, but costs are soaring! Such ingratitude. Look, smart people in Washington have been making impor tant decisions that you simply are not smart enough to make yourself. Really? Then why does Medicare Part D, a success ful entitlement program that provides drugs to the elder ly poor, work so well? Under Part D, seniors are free to choose among a variety of benets, costs and plans of fered by private insurers. According to the Heartland Institute, Medicare trustees estimated a 2013 average monthly cost of $61 the actual costs are HALF that. Look, there have been some bumps in the road, but thats partly because people like you arent getting with the program. Getting with the pro gram? You imposed a massive overhaul on a health system that the majority of Americans were happy with. You forced the policies to cover things many people dont need or want and you imposed all kinds of new taxes. It would have been cheaper and easier to leave the existing system intact and give subsidies to peo ple of modest means to buy their own policies. How selsh you are be ing. We need everyone in the pool for this thing to work. Sure, people who can pay will pay more to subsi dize people who cant pay. So quit your whining and embrace your duty. Become a willing participant in our governments collectivist ef fort to control everyones health care or the IRS will track you down and impose a ne! You still arent listening. I make $36,000 a year, just like the fellow at the Span ish-speaking town hall. Even if I was willing, I cannot af ford to spend 10 percent of my income on ObamaCare!Tom Purcell is a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review humor columnist and is nationally syndicated exclusive ly by Cagle Cartoons Inc.

www.newssun.comWednesday, March 19, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A5 residents on how they might become involved in the conservation and management of black bears. None of those are in Highlands County but we expect to have some there in the future, said FWC spokesman Gary Morse. The plan is to have seven bear management units throughout the state. That plan has been in the works since the FWCs Florida Black Bear Management Plan was approved in 2012. In Sebring, a rstgrade class at Cracker Trail Elementary School has been working on a plan to map black bear movement. I actually suggest ed that to the teacher, Sheli Gossett, Morse said.She wrote us an email and I suggested ei ther black bears or gopher tortoises. Apparently, the black bears won the young sters attention. The FWC has been in creasing its outreach effort since late last year, after there had been a signicant increase in bear complaints. That caused the FWC to ramp up its efforts to let peo ple know about the dangers of feeding bears. We knew there was a problem, we saw it com ing and we tried to get the information out at that time, he said. While bears current ly are in the hibernation season, Morse said as springtime advances, bears will become pro gressively more active. Morse said the FWC is planning yet anoth er outreach program for the public in the near fu ture. Hopefully, we will get the message out not to feed bears, he said. CASE FROM PAGE A1 property. They need a maintenance bud get, Devlin said. A lot of them should still be renting. Devlin believes getting citizens from the city to serve on a code en forcement board would help streamline the process. Mayor Sharon Schuler said that code enforcement has been a pet peeve of the city council. Small things dont get xed, Schuler said. Every small thing turns out to be a large issue. The city hasnt had a code enforce ment board for more than 15 years, Schuler said. It was disbanded when members didnt or couldnt show up for meetings. So, for more than 15 years, cases have been heard by a special magis trate. One of the rst magistrates for the city was local attorney and nowCouncilman Parke Sutherland, who also said he would support bringing back a board. City Attorney Gerald Buhr said the city charter species that the board would need to be seven people, and would require the city to attempt to nd architects, engineers, builders and contractors for members. Such professionals are not required, but are preferred, he said. Councilman Terry Heston said he had a case of a nuisance in his neighborhood prior to getting elect ed that took nearly nine years to get compliance. He asked if there was any way to speed that up. Buhr said there is still a process to follow, but Sutherland said he believed the pro cess could go faster. Councilman Garrett Anderson asked if the city could employ in mates from Avon Park Correctional Institution to help clean up garbage, but City Manager Julian Deleon said he didnt want to use inmates for simple trash pickup. Schuler asked if the city could compel property owners to take down unpermitted fences. Buhr said owners could apply for a permit af ter the fact if the fences meet code. Otherwise, they would have to take them down, he said. Anyone interested in serving on a code enforcement board would need to call 452-4400 for an application or download one from the citys web site, www.avonpark.cc, clicking the Resources menu, selecting publi cations and clicking volunteer application.

Wohl said the purpose of the village was to pro vide art, in all its forms, to everyone. For established artists, its a place to showcase their work. For emerging artists, its a place where they can go and get in spired and get their work a little exposure or for those who just admire art its a place where they can come and see so many different mediums of it, Wohl said. With the Clovelly House opening up, this will make it really become and established art vil lage. I am so excited that the village is nally com ing together, as well as the board members. Its awesome to see all these things opening up for our community especially it being downtown, Wohl said. For the children, I am most excited. Art is a big part of learning and grow ing. This benets kids; being that we are in such a rural area we are at a dis advantage, but this exposure will be great for them. Susan Millam, former board member and cur rent museum curator and director, has been instru mental in helping grow the village over the past 15 years and had plenty to say regarding the long time progression of the Clovelly House. That was one of the original buildings on that property that was leased to us by the city. At that time we didnt have any of the funds to make it any thing, much less a youth house. We knew at the time we needed a building to house the youngsters so that plan never went away, Millam said. The original plan nev er came through because it was uninhabitable and the funds were just un available. After many years of planning and acquiring a grant from the Communi ty Redevelopment Agency, the vision was back. Everybody knew the importance of having a place for the youth. The best gift to the community that we could think of was a place for them (youth), Millam said. Everyone has worked so great to gether to have this vision come alive. VILLAGE FROM PAGE A1Mayor George Hensley will be the topic of the rst ever mayors Roast and Toast at the Jack Stroup Civic Center (fol lowing a Wine Walk at the HAL Village from 4:306 p.m.) to honor Hens leys many years of ser vice to the city of Sebring.

The event will begin with the grand open ing of the Clovelly House, which will feature 100 art pieces from local art stu dents. The popular downtown Wine Walk will be re-vamped especially for the village that evening and will feature free wine, cheese and fruit for at tendees. Guests will be able to meander through the villages four houses and take in the sights of all the unique art work by dozens of local artists. Its going to be a fun night. We will honor May or Hensley, who has been a huge supporter of High lands Art League for many years. We will be having a sit-down dinner featuring food from Chef Mac. The night will be just fun with food, mu sic and a few surprises for the mayor, Wohl said. A silent auction and live music will also take place at the Roast and Toast along with guest speak ers, who will share stories about Hensley. HAL Board President Don Elwell is one of many people looking forward to all the Roast and Toast as well as all of HALs new events, exhibits and at tractions. Ive been on the board for a very long time and this is the rst time the village has been this way. The village has never been this far along. We could not be more ex cited about this and and how everything over there is coming along, Elwell said.

ROAST FROM PAGE A1 adults riding around. Tres Stephenson, presi dent and general manager of Sebring International Raceway, said ticket prices havent gone up, except for general recre ational vehicle spots and both car and RV spots in the North Paddock, and he believes 2014s fourday attendance may top last years crowd of 164,000 people. Over the decades, the Raceway has worked to attract family friendly entertainment, Stephen son said, while also appealing to college students to take spring break at the Race, by provid ing a party zone with live bands, a bikini contest and the Patrn Club. It has helped to ensure that most of the revel ry stays in one place, he said. Labelle said he hasnt seen as many teenag ers or young adults in the backs of trucks and Jeeps, especially since NAS CAR bought the Raceway in September 2012. Stephenson said that the purchase hasnt affected how staff runs events, but he also said he has extra eyes from civic club vol unteers at gates, parking areas and general opera tions. It takes a community to put this event on, Ste phenson said. He also credited Sher iff Susan Benton, her deputies and other law enforcement ofcers for keeping things orderly. Labelle said Green Park has become more gen tried from the years of adult-entertainment par ties and people wanting to have a four-day drinking binge to todays crowd of serious racing fans. While some campers talked before the Race about serving mixed drinks to other fans, this years arrest report was mostly lled with drug charges. Of the 22 arrest ed, deputies led 10 mar ijuana charges, 10 paraphernalia charges, ve cocaine charges and ve prescription drug charg es, according to totals released by Nell Hays, public information ofcer for the Sheriffs Ofce. Underage alcohol charges and disorder ly intoxication each only made up three of the to tal, reports said. Last year saw only 14 people arrested, for 18 charges. Alcohol offens es still topped the list with six charges for underage possession and another charge of disorderly in toxication. Last years Race Week had only two marijuana possession charges and one paraphernalia pos session charge, Hays said. That was a drop from the 2012 race that had 25 people arrested on 27 charges. Twelve were charged for underage possession of alcohol, one for provid ing alcohol to an under age person, one for marijuana possession and one for a drug without pre scription. There were also six charges for possession of drug paraphernalia.

The IDA/EDC is a pub lic-private partnership that is designed to help spur new business invest ment locally while helping to retain current econom ic activity in the area. Highlands County IDA/ EDC Executive Direc tor Stephen Weeks made the presentation to the commission, with sever al members of the IDA/ EDC board backing up Weeks plea for the money to keep Highlands opera tion viable. Commissioner Don El well asked Weeks about IDA/EDC activities during two major recent events at the Sebring Region al Airport including the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in January as well as the just-completed Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. Those are the two events where major play ers come to Highlands County people with a lot of connections, he said. I didnt see a lot of presence there. Weeks told commission ers while the organization had no physical presence at the Race, they had pur chased advertising on the ag-to-ag coverage of the 12 Hours presented lo cally on the Cohan Radio Groups AM730 WWTK. He said the IDA/EDC also had visited all the vendors at the Sport Avia tion Expo with printed information on relocation. Commissioner Jack Richie called for addi tional presentations before the board, something Weeks agreed to. However, while agreeing that pub lic presentations would be ne, IDA/EDC chair Paul McGahee said he previ ously understood some commissioners preferred private, one-on-one ses sions. McGahee said the orga nization had made the adjustments commissioners previously had asked for, including goals with denable action steps. He noted that the EDC ofce had been reduced from four individuals to one Weeks. Our resources are lim ited, he told commissioners. While saying that com missioners are asking the tough questions, High lands County Commission Chairman Greg Harris told the board the county needs an EDC and needs to invest in it. I think we need to give direction and have our ex pectations out there as guidance for these folks, he said. I believe its headed now in a different direction. Resident Rick Ingler, a longtime attendee at county commission meet ings, pointed out that a new budget discussion for the upcoming 2014-15 s cal year will be coming up soon, asking if the organi zation was ever going to be self-sufcient. We are never going to be self-sufcient, said John Shoop, past chair of the IDA/EDC board. Theres no way the com munity is going to give us $200,000 a year to pay for an IDA/EDC. I cant envi sion that. Other members of the economic development effort told commissioners that they welcomed the idea of guidance and di rection. No date for another pre sentation by the IDA/EDC was scheduled. IDA FROM PAGE A1TALLAHASSEE (AP) The head of the Florida Democratic Party is contend ing that Republican Gov.

A8 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, March 19, 2014 www.newssun.com BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING After near ly two decades, an Amer ican marque is back atop the leader board for the 12 Hours of Sebring. It was a late-race yellow ag that bunched the eld and allowed the Ford EcoBoost Daytona Prototype piloted by Dario Franchitti to vault to the front and take the win Saturday night. Franchitti was able to run away from the HPD ARX-03b of Extreme Speed Motorsports that nished second. In the Prototype Challenge Class, the CORE AutoSport ORECA driven by Colin Braun took the checkers. In the GT classes, it was a Porsche sweep. Joerg Bergmeister was able to power the Porsche North America No. 912 to victory the GT LeMans Class while Andy Lally steered the Porsche No. 911 to the win in the GT Daytona division. When historians look back at the 2014 Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida they may see two very different races. Fans may talk about the mild temperatures and gentle winds that made race day one of the best ever. They may talk about the great exhibits on the midways or the mar velous displays of classic cars shown in the air conditioned Gallery of Legends. Drivers, on the other hand, may remember the record-tying 11 yellow ags one of which became a rare red ag thrown at Americas Oldest Grand Prix of Endur ance. It has been said that to nish rst, you rst must nish and there were cars that did. Of the 63 cars that took the green ag Saturday morning, 53 reportedly were running when the checkers fell 12 hours later. The early hours were littered with race-slowing full course yellows. The rst came just 10 minutes into the race when the No. 33 Viper Ex change Dodge Viper V10 of Ben Keating caught re at the tracks Gurney Bend. That caused a yellow ag that ran for 59 minutes Later, the Performance Technology Prototype Challenge Oreca of David Ostella lost traction and hit the abutment of the walkover bridge in Turn 17. Ostella was uninjured. It was a good mix of race leaders, with Cor vette Daytona Prototypes, a Daytona Ford EcoBoost-powered DP, 62nd 12 Hours makes for eventful race Allan Ayala/Special to the News-SunMarino Franchitti brought in the No. 01 Riley DP Ford EcoBoost in for the overall win Saturday night.

SEE RACE | A11 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les There was nowhere to hide from Mondays rains. From SFSCs home date with Polk State being postponed, out to Wauchula where Lake Plac ids contest against Hardee was washed away, and even up in New Smyrna Beach where the Blue Streaks were scheduled to play, the game was preempted by precipitation. The Panthers will make up their match up on Sunday, March 23, at 1 p.m., though Sebring likely wont reschedule the Barracudas contest, nor will the Dragons and Wildcats. South Florida is on the road today at St. Petersburg College and the high school baseball schedule continues Thursday with Avon Park at LaBelle and Sebring hosting Owasso of Oklahoma.RAINY MONDAY SOAKS LOCAL BASEBALL CALENDER SPORTS DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressThe posturing and politicking is nished. The eld has been chosen, the bracket has been set and the madness of March has nally arrived in college basketball. Having trouble making sense of it all? No problem. Here are 10 things you should know about this years NCAA tournament: ___ FIRST FOUR The NCAA tournament hasnt started on Thursday for years, but there may be more interest than ever in the four First Four games played Tuesday and Wednesday in Day ton, Ohio. Sure, Albany and Mount St. Marys are probably playing for a chance to be whipped by overall No. 1 seed Florida, and the winner of Cal Poly-Texas Southern will have to face unbeaten Wichita State. But the other two games feature some notable names: Iowa and Tennessee are vying to be the No. 11 seed and North Carolina State and Xavier will battle to be the No. 12 seed in the South Region. It didnt matter what seed or where we were going, Im just excited for the opportunity, said the Hawkeyes Aaron White. Were in. Thats all you can ask for. ___ LAST FOUR The drama of Selection Sunday often centers on the teams that were left out, and this year was no different. SMU didnt have consecutive losses until ending the regular season with defeats to Louisville and Memphis, but a loss to Houston in its AAC tournament opener bumped the Mustangs from the NCAA tournament to the NIT. Florida State, Green Bay and Georgetown were also left hanging when the nal teams were placed in the bracket. ___ REGION TO WATCH Even coaches who landed in other regions pointed to the Midwest as the most brutal road to the Final Four in Arlington, Texas. Along with the topseeded Shockers, you have two of the hottest teams in the country in Louisville and Michigan who played in last years national title game and perennial power houses Duke and Kentucky. You can analyze it a lot of different ways, said Kansas State coach Bruce Weber, whose team will face Kentucky in the 8-9 matchup on Friday in St. Louis. Were going to have to play and it doesnt matter who you play. Youve got to play good basketball. ___ BEWARE THE 12 SEEDS Just about every year, it seems a No. 12 seed rises up to knock off a No. 5 seed. Three of them did it last year in Oregon, Mississippi and California. And each of the 12-5 games in this years tour nament offers reason to be wary. Stephen F. Austin, which plays VCU, hasnt lost since November. North Dakota State heads into its game 10 things for you to know about the NCAA tournamentSEE TOURNEY | A11The time of year is upon us, with the naming of the eld and the ensuing rush to ll out NCAA Tournament brackets. Yet there are still those out there to whom it is a foreign concept, as I just discovered while try ing to get a friendly challenge going. I was just trying to explain to News-Sun staff photographer Katara Simmons, who seemed overly ummoxed as I handed her an empty bracket, you stand just as good a chance as any one. Less than ve minutes later, I showed her the bracket that I had just rapidly lled out, showing how little thought it really takes. But I have absolutely no knowledge of any of this, she replied with a tinge of angst. You know this stuff. That certainly hasnt helped me very much in the past, as Im sure many of you fellow sports afcionados will attest to. Id even say that knowing this stuff is often a hinderance, bringing about over thinking and second guessing. Which is why of the three brackets Ive lled out so far this year two in the ESPN Challenge and this most recent one Ive probably taken less than 10 minutes all told. The only thing I can say Im in the know on is my past failings. Being from the Midwest, I recognize that I often over value teams from the Big Ten, which usually comes back to burn me. I also know that there are going to be a fair share of upsets, but it is rare that I pick the right ones. And this years tournament is one that is likely to go haywire, with no real dominant, standabove-the-rest team. The likely one-anddone players at Kansas, Kentucky and Duke havent exactly launched their teams into the stratosphere, but have made them very good. On the other hand, the experts talk a lot about teams like Wichita State, Louisville, Florida and Michigan State, who are also very good, due to having teams with a lot of experience. A lot of very good teams, with varying strengths, but these arent the days of the powerhouse Dukes or UNLVs or Georgetowns. And so a lot of what might seem like upsets, really wont be all that shocking. Each year I think I understand more, at least what traps not to fall into, and yet as I look at this bracket I hastily lled out, I see my habits are still with me. I have three Big Ten teams in the Sweet 16, two in the Elite Eight, Brackets bring about annual angst AND ANOTHER THING..Dan HoehneSEE BRACKETS | A11 M C Y K

www.newssun.comWednesday, March 19, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A11 the LMP2 Honda Perfor mance Technology car and even the innovative DeltaWing holding the race lead for a time. It was in the last half hour that the Marsh Racing Corvette Daytona Prototype went off course near Turn 10, setting up an exciting NASCAR-like dash to the nish. This marked the 62nd running of Americas oldest road race and the rst to be run under the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship. RACE FROM PAGE A8 Allan Ayala/Special to the News-SunRyan Dalziel zips under the bridge at Turn 17 Saturday and would drive the No. 1 HPD ARX-03b to a secondplace nish. against Oklahoma featur ing a dynamic playmaker in Taylor Braun. The winner of North Carolina State-Xavier will have some momentum heading into a game against No. 5 seed Saint Louis. And Ivy League champ Harvard has won eight straight as it prepares to face Cincinnati. ___ IF THE SHOE FITS Sure, the notion of a Cinderella has become cliche, but its also one of the endearing elements of the NCAA tournament. So is there a team seeded lower than 12 that has a chance to make some noise? How about Tulsa, led by Danny Manning, in its opener against UCLA? After all, they called his 1988 championship Kansas team Danny and the Miracles for a reason. And dont forget the Golden Hurricanes upset the Bruins in the rst round of the 1994 tour nament. UCLA is a very talented team, Manning said. They ended up winning the (Pac-12) tournament title. They played very well in that game and theyve got really good players that Ive seen and watched for a very long time. Weve got our hands full, but I like the matchup. ___ POTENTIAL REMATCHES The NCAA selection does its best to make sure teams that faced each other in the regular season, such as conference rivals, dont meet early in the NCAA tournament. But that doesnt mean there arent some tasty potential rematches. Kansas could face New Mexico, a team it beat in December, if both win their opener in the South Region. Saint Josephs could get a chance to avenge a 30-point whipping by No. 2 seed Villanova in the third round, and fth-seeded Saint Louis could get another crack at Wichita State in the Sweet 16. ___ BLUE BLOODS There are 14 schools that have won multiple NCAA championships. All but two of them Indiana and San Francisco are in this years eld. The list is topped by UCLA, the fourth seed in the South, with its 11 national titles. The Bruins are joined there by No. 1 seed Flor ida and second-seeded Kansas. Oklahoma State won its titles as Oklahoma A&M, and is the No. 9 seed in the West. Cincinnati, UConn, North Carolina and Michigan State inhabit the East, and Duke, Kentucky and North Carolina State resides in the Midwest. ___ NEWCOMERS There are two newcomers to this years party, Cal Poly and North Carolina Central. Cal Poly got in despite its 13-19 record when reserve guard Ridge Shipley hit a 3-pointer with 13.7 seconds left for a 6159 victory over Cal State Northridge in the Big West title game, and NC Central punched its ticket in only its seventh season in Division I by beating Morgan State 71-62 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference title game. Its a testament to what these guys do emotional stamina and mental toughness, said Cal Polys Chris Eversley. It started with the coaching staff and the guys we brought in guys that were willing to buy into our program both offensively and defensively. ___ ODDS It was no surprise that Florida was installed as the early favorite to win the national championship by the Las Vegas casinos. Several that put out lines immediately after the bracket was revealed had the Gators at 4-1. Michigan State, Arizona and Kansas were in the next tier of favorites, followed by a group that included Wichita State, Virginia, Duke, Syracuse and Louisville. ___ HOME COOKING Several teams are going to feel right at home for their opening games of the tournament. And several teams are going to feel like its a road game. Florida plays the Albany-Mount St. Marys winner in Orlando, and UCLA takes on Stephen F. Austin in San Diego. Syracuse heads down the road to Buffalo for its game against Western Michigan. Baylor will face Nebraska in San Antonio, Wisconsin plays American in Milwaukee, and Duke will open against Mercer in Raleigh, N.C. Were just excited to be in the tournament, rst of all, and then being a 2 seed in Milwaukee, I mean, its going to be playing close to home, just means you did something good this year, said the Badgers Josh Gasser. You get rewarded for what youve done. TOURNEY FROM PAGE A8 and even have one winning the whole thing. Nothing is at stake, really, just the frenzied fun of seeing which of my brackets, if any, turn out well. Frenzied fun might be sugar coating it though, which is why I took the preemptive measure of shaving my head so I wont have any hair to pull out as I likely see at least one of my brackets imploding by the end of the rst day. Katara still seems reluctant to join in the fun, as much as I assure her that when it comes to lling out an NCAA Tournament bracket, ignorance is most often bliss.Dan Hoehne is the News-Sun Sport Editor, he can be reached at daniel.hoehne@newssun.com. BRACKETS FROM PAGE A8 BRIAN MAHONEYAP Basketball WriterNEW YORK Phil Jackson has returned to the New York Knicks as their team president. The Knicks announced Jacksons hiring Tuesday at a news conference in the lobby of Madison Square Garden, where a giant sign reading Welcome Home Phil was overhead and shirts with the No. 18 Jackson wore as a player lined the racks in the merchandise store. Jackson was a member of the Knicks championship-winning teams in 1970 and 1973, but they havent won a title since. Jackson went on to become the leagues most successful coach, winning 11 championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls. This will be his first time as an executive and the Knicks say he will be in charge of all basketball decisions. Steve Mills will remain as general manager.Phil Jackson returns to Knicks as team presidentComing home: Phil Jackson returns as team president to a Knicks club long in need of a titleGAINESVILLE Florida coach Billy Donovan has triggered two more bonuses in his contract. Donovan gets $50,000 for the top-ranked Gators nishing in the top 10 in the nal Associated Press poll, which was released Monday. He also earns $25,000 for being named the APs Southeastern Conference coach of the year, also announced Monday. Those bring his total to $187,500 and he could garner more bonuses. Donovan already has earned $50,000 for winning the SEC regular-season title, $25,000 for the SEC tournament and $37,500 for making the NCAA tournament. The NCAA bonus would increase to $75,000 for advancing to the Sweet 16, $100,000 for making the Final Four and $150,000 for winning the national championship.

Fresh, avorful canning recipes For the best results for your canning creations, follow these four simple tips for canning success: 1. Pick em right.When picking berries, keep in mind these fruits have high water content and are very fragile. So, use smaller containers when picking them so the berries do not get crushed under their own weight. 2. Rinse, dont soak.Due to their fragile nature, the berries should be lightly rinsed to remove surface dirt. Do not allow them to sit in water for very long because they tend to take on more water and will become mushy.3. Firm and ripeWhen selecting berries for jellied products, ripe berries are best, but not overripe ones. Choose those that have For strawberries, look for the smaller, juicier berries instead of larger types that are available today. While many people prefer their jams to be or more different types of berries together produces great jams blackberry and red raspberry, or strawberry with red raspberry.

www.newssun.comWednesday, March 19, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3Hope everyone enjoyed the Races and maybe someone made the pulled pork tacos that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. If so, I would love some feedback on how they turned out. I love any kind of squash and I cook zucchini at home for Lauren and my self often. We usually cut them into long strips, marinate them in rose mary, garlic and olive oil, then roasted them on the top rack of our grill. I like to put some mes quite chips in the charcoal to give them a touch of smoky avor. Thats one way of pre paring zucchini, but there are countless others and the one I have for you is different, healthy, fun to prepare and it will impress your dinner guests. Its kind of a twist on coleslaw and has bright colors and nice texture. Zucchini apple slaw would be a great side dish at your next barbecue or any other gathering where there is going to be food. I would also make the tra ditional coleslaw and potato salad and put your zucchini slaw in the mid dle. You might be sur prised and how many of your guests will like it af ter taking a bite. You could also use it as a topping of something like a pulled pork sand wich or a veggie burger. If you dont have the cara way seed, I suggest picking some up at the mar ket. It is a key avor it this slaw and paired with the apple, it is wonderful. Cheers, Chef.ZUCCHINI APPLE SLAWYields 16 four oz. portions 3 oz. Vinegar, Cider 2 tbs. Sugar, Granulated 2-1/4 tsp.

You will save 50 percent-plus on those items that you can pair with a coupon. Last week pasta sauce was BOGO at my local grocery store with a sav ings of $1.29. This was great timing because there was also a $1.00/2 pas ta sauce coupon available clipped from the Sunday paper. With the coupon you ended up paying only $0.15 each. That is a stock up price. At this price even if you didnt eat this brand of pasta sauce, you could donate it. Below are a few questions sent in by readers on BOGO cou pons. This week, Angela P. asked what to do with a BOGO coupon and sale? Tanya, I recently spot ted a Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) Sale on Body wash and I also have a BOGO coupon for that ex act product. How many do I need to buy with my coupon? Angela, that is a great question. The short an swer is you only need to buy two total and both will be free. It can be confusing when it comes to match ing up a sale with a coupon and knowing what you and cant do. With a Buy One Get One Free sale (BOGO) the re quirement is to buy two of that item. With a BOGO coupon the requirement is the same. The store is offering the sale because it loves us. The manufac turer is offering the coupon to help save money and try a new product. By knowing how coupons work, you are able to take advantage of the sale and the coupon. Buy two body wash and use your BOGO coupon. When the cashier sub-to tals the register, the rst body wash will come off automatically. Next, pres ent you coupon and the second body wash will come off leaving you pay ing only tax and your two bottles of body wash com pletely free. That is so exciting when you can get free items with your cou pons. Even if you cant use the product, someone can and then you bless others by donating. Tanya, with a Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) sale, how many coupons can I use? Tina B. Another great question, Tina, and a very impor tant one, too. By knowing your store policies and the limit on coupons, you will save a bundle and check out will be a breeze. Typ ically with a BOGO sale, you can use a coupon on each item. Example: Orange juice is buy one get one free for $2.99. You can use two $1.00/1 orange juice cou pons equals $0.99 for both bottles of juice. You are saving 66 percent by buy ing the juice with your coupon instead of wait ing until you need it and missing the sale and cou pon. The secret to saving money with coupons isnt just clipping the coupon; it is knowing when to use that coupon. Using the coupon with a sale is the best plan.

We gave each other our phone passwords as soon as we made it ofcial to avoid keeping things from each other. One night I had a sud den urge to go through his phone. I had never done it before, and when I looked at his Facebook messages, I saw he had been exchanging inap propriate pictures with someone. I was shocked and angry, and it almost ended our relationship. He deleted and blocked this person, and I forgave him. We dont talk about it anymore. I havent noticed any oth er red ags, but now, when hes asleep or goes somewhere and leaves his phone at home, just looking at it upsets me. Ill put a pillow or a blanket over it so I can forget its there. I dont know if I should take another peek to make sure hes staying on the straight and narrow, or if ignorance is bliss. What do you think? UNSURE GUY IN TEXASDEAR UNSURE GUY: Ignorance ISNT bliss. Being able to trust the man youre with is, and if it turns out you cant, its better that you know sooner rather than later. It appears you still have some unresolved trust issues with him that need to be discussed. Between you and me, if he was trying to con ceal something, he probably wouldnt be leaving his phone exposed and vulnerable to checking. DEAR ABBY: Im 39 and have been married for 12 years. My wife is 35. When we rst got to gether, my wife did not want to have kids right away. She said may be after I graduated from college, or per haps we could adopt. It took more time because of some surgeries, but I have graduated now and I want to start a family. She now says she thought I was kidding when we were talking about it all those years ago, and that I knew she never wanted kids. I am at a loss. I love this wom an, but I do want children, or to adopt a baby if thats not possible but she says shes unwill ing to do either. What am I to do? WANTS TO BE A DAD IN CHARLOTTE, N.C.DEAR WANTS TO BE A DAD: You either accept that you will be child less, or talk to an attor ney about divorcing a woman who appears to have deceived you. How sad! DEAR ABBY: I was en gaged to my ex-girlfriend for three years. We broke up more than a year ago her choice. We reconciled briey, but are now broken up for good, and shes dat ing someone else. My question is about the engagement ring. It didnt bother me that she kept it until recent ly. Should I ask for the ring back or let it go? If you think I should ask for it, should I do it faceto-face or through some other messaging? MOVING ON IN KENTUCKYDEAR MOVING ON: When your ex-girlfriend broke the engagement, she should have re turned the engagement ring. That she didnt in dicates she is either ignorant regarding the rules of etiquette, or that she plans to keep it re gardless of what the custom is. (If its the latter, youre fortunate to be rid of her.) I do NOT recommend asking for the ring via text or a phone call out of the blue. Your chanc es might be better if you ask in person.

If so, I would love some feedback on how they turned out. I love any kind of squash and I cook zucchini at home for Lauren and my self often. We usually cut them into long strips, marinate them in rose mary, garlic and olive oil, then roasted them on the top rack of our grill. I like to put some mes quite chips in the charcoal to give them a touch of smoky avor. Thats one way of pre paring zucchini, but there are countless others and the one I have for you is different, healthy, fun to prepare and it will impress your dinner guests. Its kind of a twist on coleslaw and has bright colors and nice texture. Zucchini apple slaw would be a great side dish at your next barbecue or any other gathering where there is going to be food. I would also make the tra ditional coleslaw and potato salad and put your zucchini slaw in the mid dle. You might be sur prised and how many of your guests will like it af ter taking a bite. You could also use it as a topping of something like a pulled pork sand wich or a veggie burger. If you dont have the cara way seed, I suggest picking some up at the mar ket.

M C Y K B4 | NEWS-SUN | W ednesday, March 19, 2014 www.newssun.com When people rst hear the Dinner Divas gone Pa leo, they almost always say the same thing: Oh I know this Paleo diet is supposed to be healthy, but I could never give up [bread/potatoes/pasta/ corn/dairy/etc.]. Why is everyone so fo cused on what you cant have?,I like to twist that negative around and talk about what we can have. Now, in case you arent already familiar, a Paleo diet is a diet thats as close as possible to the one our ancestors followed thou sands of years ago. Paleo folk eat primarily local grass-fed meats, free range poultry, sustainably caught sh, nuts, seeds and organic produce stuff you can hunt or gath er (although for us nowadays, thats just eating from the perimeter of the grocery store, LOL). It might sound limit ing (if you want to look at it that way), but I am here to tell you that I am a very happy camper and there is no deprivation or suf fering. Quite the contrary, Im well-fed and feel bet ter than I have in years. The following principles constitute a Paleo diet: We need to fuel our bodies with nutrients. The best source of nutrients is in plants and animals that consume plants (not grain), especially season al, organic local produce and grass fed, pastured meat. Free-range organ ic eggs are packed with protein, amino acids and minerals. Stress-reducing ac tivities (massage, yoga, baths, meditation and prayer) are essential to good health and should be done daily. Exercise is impor tant, but it should involve doing activities you enjoy. Rest is an often over looked key to good health. We need to give our bod ies adequate sleep so our hormones function properly. Fruit should be con sumed lightly and prefer ably fruits with the color going all the way through (think raspberry as op posed to an apple) Nuts, and seeds con tain vital nutrients and should be eaten daily in moderation. Rened sugar, grains, legumes, anything with gluten and packaged, pro cessed foods are anti-nutrients and need to be avoided. Healthy fats like olive oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter and avocado do the body good. Vegetable oils (mar garine and liquid vegetable oils) are dangerous, human-made fats that should not be consumed by people. Greek yogurt, ker and cheese aged more than 120 days are acceptable forms of dairy if youre a part-time paleoista and are more primal than paleo. Wine has probiotic properties and a great nu tritional prole and can be enjoyed in moderation. Counting calories is meaningless our bod ies are chemistry labs, not bank accounts. Probiotics and fer mented veggies are benecial to digestion. Bone broth is chock full of gut-healing properties and should become a sta ple in your diet. Be aware of your diges tion and elimination and adjust accordingly. So who doesnt love ba con and butter?! Or how about wine and steak? And theres no counting calories or rationing the avocados!Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of Body Clutter and the Saving Dinner series.

The Avon Park City Council voted at its last meeting to ask city residents who have an interest in serving to contact city hall.

Hes taken a 50-gallon garbage bag along Lake Avenue at Bell Street near the Avon Park Middle School and lled it up within a one-block area. He also said he has seen blue tarps still used to cover roofs, out side walls in disrepair, and fences that may not have been per mitted made up of chicken wire, hog wire and tarps.

A 2001 Ford van was stopped on Lake Mirror Drive at the stop sign for U.S. 27. The van started to cross over the southbound lanes and attempted to stop in the median cross over, but was still in the motorcycles path. The front of the Kawasaki hit the left side of the van, throwing both Stephen Yanka and Mary Yanka onto the road, south of the intersection. The motorcycle stayed at the point of impact while the van contin ued northeast, crossed the northbound trafc lanes and stopped facing northeast in the eastbound lane of Carver Street, also called Jo sephine Avenue, in the Highway Park subdivision. Despite not wear ing a seat belt, Holthaus was uninjured. His three passengers, all wear ing seat belts, were also uninjured: Patricia A. Holthaus, 67, also of Sidney, Ohio; Maurice R.

The com mendations came as a result of the proactive and successful operation in Avon Park recently. In an effort to stop the numerous robberies of migrant workers in Avon Park, Highlands County sheriffs deputies initiated an undercover operation where one of the team members, Deputy Alfredo Campos, posed as a mi grant worker. Deputy Campos soon became a victim of the robbers and actually sustained minor injuries as the suspects pulled a chain from his neck dur ing the crime. Two suspects were arrested in the sting and were charged with robbery and resisting an ofcer without violence. Other members of the Crime Suppression Team that received commendations were Sgt. Jamie Davidson, Sgt. Mike Abell, Deputy Max Van DHuynslager, Deputy Ken Jorgensen and Depu ty Yancy Plair. The Sons of the American Revolution are an or ganization made up of people who are direct lin eal descendants of members of George Washingtons Army and who fought in the American Revolution in the 1700s.

They want to make it illegal to discrim inate against a citizen who is exercising their constitutional right to own rearms.

BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING The January unemployment numbers for the state of Florida have been released and it appears to be a rather mixed bag. For Highlands County, of the estimated 40,546 people in the workforce, there were 2,980 report edly off the job. That translated to a 7.3 percent unemploy ment gure here. It was a few tenths of a per cent up from Decembers even 7 percent, but down from January 2013 when Highlands had 8.9 percent of the labor force said to be out of work. Part of that appears to be the impact of holi day hires who were let go after Christmas or after New Years, said Donna Doubleday, executive director of CareerSource Heartland. We generally see a bit of a spike in December because of those seasonal hires. The state of Florida showed an estimated 6.3 percent unemployment rate, which was season ally adjusted to 6.1 per cent. The states joblessness rate was projected downward slightly from Decembers seasonally adjusted 6.3 percent and January 2013 when the number was an even 8 percent. State ofcials say get ting Januarys employ ment gures to the public so late is the result of a process called benchmarking. That process is done each March by the U.S. Department of Labors Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, which makes a number of revisions to the states histor ical data. What happens right now is that they recalcu late by looking at the actual gures based upon information from employers using the taxbased system, she said. That gives a truer gure. The January numbers really reect that. Because of the process and new information, Februarys numbers are set to be announced at the end of next week.Local unemployment numbers up and down M C Y K

A4 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, March 19, 2014 www.newssun.com NEWS-SUNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSWhat does a community do to protect itself from individu als who are mentally ill and in need of medical intervention and pose a hazard to themselves or oth ers? Two recent incidents make this an urgent question in Highlands County. Mary Musselman, 81, was arrest ed in January when she would not, or could not, stop feeding black bears on her property. It was a difcult situ ation. Because bears lose their fear of humans when they are fed, they will approach houses in search of food. This creates a risk of harm to people, so friendly bears are killed. Musselman, however, is reported to be struggling with Alzheimers dis ease. Many people do not think she should be incarcerated, as they feel she cant be held responsible for her behavior Then there is the case of Floyd Gene Hodge, 31, who was shot and killed by sheriffs deputies March 9 when he refused to put his AK-47 down af ter shooting dozens of rounds into his neighbors homes. Hodges wife had been afraid of his behavior and had asked for help. On March 9, Sheriff Susan Benton said, How do we intervene with people? The family feared it would end up like this. In fact, the state has attempted to deal with just these sorts of situa tions. In 1971, the legislature passed the Florida Mental Health Act. This statute, known as the Baker Act, pro vides legal procedures for mental health examination and treatment. If individuals are a danger to them selves or others, they may be ordered to a Florida Department of Children and Families designated receiving facility for an observation and ex amination period of 72 hours (three days). The need for this kind of interven tion facility is growing greater. According to DCF statistics, between 2002 and 2011, there was a statewide increase of 50 percent in involuntary exams. In 2011, 150,000 individuals were Baker Acted. The only designated facility in our area is Peace River in Bartow. It serves Highlands, Hardee and Polk counties with a 30-bed capacity. According to its website, Peace River served 11,234 individuals in 2010. Not all those in dividuals were at Peace River as the result of a Baker Act, but there isnt al ways room. It is also inconvenient to Highlands County and impossible to reach with out private transportation. For years, the sheriffs ofce has wanted a DCF designated receiving facility with a crisis stabilization unit opened here. We strongly agree. One reason an elderly, inrm wom an ended up in jail is because there was nowhere else safe to put her. One reason a young man, driven by de mons, was shot and killed is there had been no place for his family to go for help. It is time to provide the mentally ill and their families crisis intervention. Everyone is safer.No help for mentally illSoup Up The Arts a successSebring High Schools 12th annual Soup-Up the Arts fundraising event held by the schools Art Club and National Art Honor Society was a record breaking one. The recipients for this year are the local families of Zak Taylor and Mary Ann Gold burne. Zak is a sixth-grader at Hill-Gustat Middle School who is ghting neurobromatosis (a rare tumor forming disease). Mary Ann is a 14-year breast cancer survivor who is now battling cancer in both lungs while car ing for six grandchildren and attending chemotherapy sessions. The event is set up and run by the students, who spent the months prior making ceramic bowls and decorations. The students plan every detail of the fun draiser from food, themes, entertainment, and the event itself. This year the students created more than 600 hand-made bowls and decorated with a Pop-Art theme. Many local restaurants and individuals donat ed soups, breads, and deserts to make a great meal.

I had a great time and it was an experience of a lifetime.HAILE Y MITC H ELLSebringLook, if you want ObamaCare, you are just going to have to make some better budgeting decisions. Budgeting decisions? I make $36,000 a year. The best deal I could nd on ObamaCare, with subsidies, is $350 a month. That is a hefty 10 percent of my in come! Like President Obama recently said at a Spanishspeaking town hall, all you have to do is prioritize your budget better. Ill bet if we look at your cable bill, cell phone bill and other things you are spending on, we will nd your priorities are not good. My priorities! Do you know how little $36,000 is? Have you seen the price of food lately? Produce is so high, the wife and kids and I are going without salad many nights. Maybe you ought to plant a garden and grow your own. That would be the en vironmentally responsible thing to do. Our electricity costs are soaring, too the EPA is driving that by writing new rules that are hurting coalred electric plants. Were doing that for your own good. Besides, it isnt the governments fault that you probably hoarded in efcient incandescent light bulbs that waste heat and burn more energy. People like you cause your own problems. Gasoline prices are out of sight. Federal gasoline taxes arent helping and the gov ernment is not letting reneries expand. With global demand for gas growing, prices will keep going up. We cant afford gas on my salary now. You are driving an SUV, arent you? For your own good, the government bailed out GM and lost $10 billion in taxpayer money and promoted environmentally friendly electric and hybrid cars in the process. They get way better mileage than your SUV. We cant afford a Chevy Volt. Are you listening? We cant afford any of the things our expanding federal gov ernment is foisting on us least of all ObamaCare. You promised to make health insurance less expensive, but costs are soaring! Such ingratitude. Look, smart people in Washington have been making impor tant decisions that you simply are not smart enough to make yourself. Really? Then why does Medicare Part D, a successful entitlement program that provides drugs to the elder ly poor, work so well? Under Part D, seniors are free to choose among a variety of benets, costs and plans offered by private insurers. According to the Heartland Institute, Medicare trustees estimated a 2013 average monthly cost of $61 the actual costs are HALF that. Look, there have been some bumps in the road, but thats partly because people like you arent getting with the program. Getting with the pro gram? You imposed a massive overhaul on a health system that the majority of Americans were happy with. You forced the policies to cover things many people dont need or want and you imposed all kinds of new taxes. It would have been cheaper and easier to leave the existing system intact and give subsidies to peo ple of modest means to buy their own policies. How selsh you are being. We need everyone in the pool for this thing to work. Sure, people who can pay will pay more to subsidize people who cant pay. So quit your whining and embrace your duty. Become a willing participant in our governments collectivist effort to control everyones health care or the IRS will track you down and impose a ne! You still arent listening. I make $36,000 a year, just like the fellow at the Span ish-speaking town hall. Even if I was willing, I cannot afford to spend 10 percent of my income on ObamaCare!Tom Purcell is a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review humor columnist and is nationally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons Inc.

www.newssun.comWednesday, March 19, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A5 residents on how they might become involved in the conservation and management of black bears. None of those are in Highlands County but we expect to have some there in the future, said FWC spokesman Gary Morse. The plan is to have seven bear management units throughout the state. That plan has been in the works since the FWCs Florida Black Bear Management Plan was approved in 2012. In Sebring, a rstgrade class at Cracker Trail Elementary School has been working on a plan to map black bear movement. I actually suggest ed that to the teacher, Sheli Gossett, Morse said.She wrote us an email and I suggested either black bears or gopher tortoises. Apparently, the black bears won the youngsters attention. The FWC has been increasing its outreach effort since late last year, after there had been a signicant increase in bear complaints. That caused the FWC to ramp up its efforts to let people know about the dangers of feeding bears. We knew there was a problem, we saw it coming and we tried to get the information out at that time, he said. While bears currently are in the hibernation season, Morse said as springtime advances, bears will become progressively more active. Morse said the FWC is planning yet another outreach program for the public in the near future. Hopefully, we will get the message out not to feed bears, he said. CASE FROM PAGE A1 property. They need a maintenance budget, Devlin said. A lot of them should still be renting. Devlin believes getting citizens from the city to serve on a code enforcement board would help streamline the process. Mayor Sharon Schuler said that code enforcement has been a pet peeve of the city council. Small things dont get xed, Schuler said. Every small thing turns out to be a large issue. The city hasnt had a code enforce ment board for more than 15 years, Schuler said. It was disbanded when members didnt or couldnt show up for meetings. So, for more than 15 years, cases have been heard by a special magistrate. One of the rst magistrates for the city was local attorney and nowCouncilman Parke Sutherland, who also said he would support bringing back a board. City Attorney Gerald Buhr said the city charter species that the board would need to be seven people, and would require the city to attempt to nd architects, engineers, builders and contractors for members. Such professionals are not required, but are preferred, he said. Councilman Terry Heston said he had a case of a nuisance in his neighborhood prior to getting elect ed that took nearly nine years to get compliance. He asked if there was any way to speed that up. Buhr said there is still a process to follow, but Sutherland said he believed the process could go faster. Councilman Garrett Anderson asked if the city could employ inmates from Avon Park Correctional Institution to help clean up garbage, but City Manager Julian Deleon said he didnt want to use inmates for simple trash pickup. Schuler asked if the city could compel property owners to take down unpermitted fences. Buhr said owners could apply for a permit af ter the fact if the fences meet code. Otherwise, they would have to take them down, he said. Anyone interested in serving on a code enforcement board would need to call 452-4400 for an application or download one from the citys web site, www.avonpark.cc, clicking the Resources menu, selecting publications and clicking volunteer application.

Wohl said the purpose of the village was to provide art, in all its forms, to everyone. For established artists, its a place to showcase their work. For emerging artists, its a place where they can go and get in spired and get their work a little exposure or for those who just admire art its a place where they can come and see so many different mediums of it, Wohl said. With the Clovelly House opening up, this will make it really become and established art vil lage. I am so excited that the village is nally coming together, as well as the board members. Its awesome to see all these things opening up for our community especially it being downtown, Wohl said. For the children, I am most excited. Art is a big part of learning and grow ing. This benets kids; being that we are in such a rural area we are at a dis advantage, but this exposure will be great for them. Susan Millam, former board member and cur rent museum curator and director, has been instrumental in helping grow the village over the past 15 years and had plenty to say regarding the long time progression of the Clovelly House. That was one of the original buildings on that property that was leased to us by the city. At that time we didnt have any of the funds to make it any thing, much less a youth house. We knew at the time we needed a building to house the youngsters so that plan never went away, Millam said. The original plan nev er came through because it was uninhabitable and the funds were just unavailable. After many years of planning and acquiring a grant from the Communi ty Redevelopment Agency, the vision was back. Everybody knew the importance of having a place for the youth. The best gift to the community that we could think of was a place for them (youth), Millam said. Everyone has worked so great to gether to have this vision come alive. VILLAGE FROM PAGE A1Mayor George Hensley will be the topic of the rst ever mayors Roast and Toast at the Jack Stroup Civic Center (following a Wine Walk at the HAL Village from 4:306 p.m.) to honor Hensleys many years of ser vice to the city of Sebring. HAL marketing consultant Casey Wohl, HAL board members and volunteers, has helped implement a fun night lled with art, music and activities. The event will begin with the grand opening of the Clovelly House, which will feature 100 art pieces from local art students. The popular downtown Wine Walk will be re-vamped especially for the village that evening and will feature free wine, cheese and fruit for attendees. Guests will be able to meander through the villages four houses and take in the sights of all the unique art work by dozens of local artists. Its going to be a fun night. We will honor May or Hensley, who has been a huge supporter of Highlands Art League for many years. We will be having a sit-down dinner featuring food from Chef Mac. The night will be just fun with food, music and a few surprises for the mayor, Wohl said. A silent auction and live music will also take place at the Roast and Toast along with guest speakers, who will share stories about Hensley. HAL Board President Don Elwell is one of many people looking forward to all the Roast and Toast as well as all of HALs new events, exhibits and at tractions. Ive been on the board for a very long time and this is the rst time the village has been this way. The village has never been this far along. We could not be more ex cited about this and and how everything over there is coming along, Elwell said. Tickets to the Roast and Toast are now on sale and can be purchased through the Highlands Art League. Individual tickets are $40/person for HAL members; $45/per son for not-yet-members. Sponsorships from $250$2,500 are also available, as well as reserved tables for 8 for $400. Auction items are also needed.

ROAST FROM PAGE A1 adults riding around. Tres Stephenson, president and general manager of Sebring International Raceway, said ticket prices havent gone up, except for general recre ational vehicle spots and both car and RV spots in the North Paddock, and he believes 2014s fourday attendance may top last years crowd of 164,000 people. Over the decades, the Raceway has worked to attract family friendly entertainment, Stephen son said, while also appealing to college students to take spring break at the Race, by providing a party zone with live bands, a bikini contest and the Patrn Club. It has helped to ensure that most of the revelry stays in one place, he said. Labelle said he hasnt seen as many teenagers or young adults in the backs of trucks and Jeeps, especially since NASCAR bought the Raceway in September 2012. Stephenson said that the purchase hasnt affected how staff runs events, but he also said he has extra eyes from civic club volunteers at gates, parking areas and general opera tions. It takes a community to put this event on, Stephenson said. He also credited Sher iff Susan Benton, her deputies and other law enforcement ofcers for keeping things orderly. Labelle said Green Park has become more gentried from the years of adult-entertainment par ties and people wanting to have a four-day drinking binge to todays crowd of serious racing fans. While some campers talked before the Race about serving mixed drinks to other fans, this years arrest report was mostly lled with drug charges. Of the 22 arrest ed, deputies led 10 mar ijuana charges, 10 paraphernalia charges, ve cocaine charges and ve prescription drug charges, according to totals released by Nell Hays, public information ofcer for the Sheriffs Ofce. Underage alcohol charges and disorder ly intoxication each only made up three of the total, reports said. Last year saw only 14 people arrested, for 18 charges. Alcohol offenses still topped the list with six charges for underage possession and another charge of disorderly intoxication. Last years Race Week had only two marijuana possession charges and one paraphernalia possession charge, Hays said. That was a drop from the 2012 race that had 25 people arrested on 27 charges. Twelve were charged for underage possession of alcohol, one for provid ing alcohol to an under age person, one for marijuana possession and one for a drug without prescription. There were also six charges for possession of drug paraphernalia.

The IDA/EDC is a public-private partnership that is designed to help spur new business investment locally while helping to retain current economic activity in the area. Highlands County IDA/ EDC Executive Direc tor Stephen Weeks made the presentation to the commission, with sever al members of the IDA/ EDC board backing up Weeks plea for the money to keep Highlands opera tion viable. Commissioner Don Elwell asked Weeks about IDA/EDC activities during two major recent events at the Sebring Regional Airport including the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in January as well as the just-completed Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. Those are the two events where major play ers come to Highlands County people with a lot of connections, he said. I didnt see a lot of presence there. Weeks told commissioners while the organization had no physical presence at the Race, they had pur chased advertising on the ag-to-ag coverage of the 12 Hours presented locally on the Cohan Radio Groups AM730 WWTK. He said the IDA/EDC also had visited all the vendors at the Sport Aviation Expo with printed information on relocation. Commissioner Jack Richie called for additional presentations before the board, something Weeks agreed to. However, while agreeing that public presentations would be ne, IDA/EDC chair Paul McGahee said he previously understood some commissioners preferred private, one-on-one sessions. McGahee said the organization had made the adjustments commissioners previously had asked for, including goals with denable action steps. He noted that the EDC ofce had been reduced from four individuals to one Weeks. Our resources are lim ited, he told commissioners. While saying that commissioners are asking the tough questions, Highlands County Commission Chairman Greg Harris told the board the county needs an EDC and needs to invest in it. I think we need to give direction and have our ex pectations out there as guidance for these folks, he said. I believe its headed now in a different direction. Resident Rick Ingler, a longtime attendee at county commission meet ings, pointed out that a new budget discussion for the upcoming 2014-15 scal year will be coming up soon, asking if the organization was ever going to be self-sufcient. We are never going to be self-sufcient, said John Shoop, past chair of the IDA/EDC board. Theres no way the com munity is going to give us $200,000 a year to pay for an IDA/EDC. I cant envision that. Other members of the economic development effort told commissioners that they welcomed the idea of guidance and direction. No date for another presentation by the IDA/EDC was scheduled. IDA FROM PAGE A1TALLAHASSEE (AP) The head of the Florida Democratic Party is contend ing that Republican Gov. Rick Scotts campaign broke the states campaign nance laws by shifting money between accounts. Election law complaints can be routine during an election year, but this one could be signicant: If conrmed, it could result in a ne of as much as $82 million. Allison Tant, who is the chairwoman of the state party, led the complaint with the Florida Elections Commission late last week, naming both Scott and his po litical committee Lets Get to Work. The complaint maintains that the campaign broke the law when the Scott campaign transferred nearly $27.4 million from one type of campaign account to another earlier this month. They have violated the law and the governor is supposed to uphold the law, Tant told The Associated Press Republican Party of Florida chairman Lenny Curry defended Scotts campaign. Lets Get to Work is condent that they have done everything according to the standards of Florida election law, Curry said in a statement.Dems say Scott campaign broke law M C Y K

A8 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, March 19, 2014 www.newssun.com BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING After near ly two decades, an Amer ican marque is back atop the leader board for the 12 Hours of Sebring. It was a late-race yellow ag that bunched the eld and allowed the Ford EcoBoost Daytona Prototype piloted by Dario Franchitti to vault to the front and take the win Saturday night. Franchitti was able to run away from the HPD ARX-03b of Extreme Speed Motorsports that nished second. In the Prototype Challenge Class, the CORE AutoSport ORECA driven by Colin Braun took the checkers. In the GT classes, it was a Porsche sweep. Joerg Bergmeister was able to power the Porsche North America No. 912 to victory the GT LeMans Class while Andy Lally steered the Porsche No. 911 to the win in the GT Daytona division. When historians look back at the 2014 Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida they may see two very different races. Fans may talk about the mild temperatures and gentle winds that made race day one of the best ever. They may talk about the great exhibits on the midways or the mar velous displays of classic cars shown in the air conditioned Gallery of Legends. Drivers, on the other hand, may remember the record-tying 11 yellow ags one of which became a rare red ag thrown at Americas Oldest Grand Prix of Endur ance. It has been said that to nish rst, you rst must nish and there were cars that did. Of the 63 cars that took the green ag Saturday morning, 53 reportedly were running when the checkers fell 12 hours later. The early hours were littered with race-slowing full course yellows. The rst came just 10 minutes into the race when the No. 33 Viper Ex change Dodge Viper V10 of Ben Keating caught re at the tracks Gurney Bend. That caused a yellow ag that ran for 59 minutes Later, the Performance Technology Prototype Challenge Oreca of David Ostella lost traction and hit the abutment of the walkover bridge in Turn 17. Ostella was uninjured. It was a good mix of race leaders, with Cor vette Daytona Prototypes, a Daytona Ford EcoBoost-powered DP, 62nd 12 Hours makes for eventful race Allan Ayala/Special to the News-SunMarino Franchitti brought in the No. 01 Riley DP Ford EcoBoost in for the overall win Saturday night. Allan Ayala/Special to the News-SunDrivers saw pleasant conditions throughout the day of the 62nd running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. SEE RACE | A11 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les There was nowhere to hide from Mondays rains. From SFSCs home date with Polk State being postponed, out to Wauchula where Lake Placids contest against Hardee was washed away, and even up in New Smyrna Beach where the Blue Streaks were scheduled to play, the game was preempted by precipitation. The Panthers will make up their match up on Sunday, March 23, at 1 p.m., though Sebring likely wont reschedule the Barracudas contest, nor will the Dragons and Wildcats. South Florida is on the road today at St. Petersburg College and the high school baseball schedule continues Thursday with Avon Park at LaBelle and Sebring hosting Owasso of Oklahoma.RAINY MONDAY SOAKS LOCAL BASEBALL CALENDER SPORTS DAVE SKRETTAAssociated PressThe posturing and politicking is nished. The eld has been chosen, the bracket has been set and the madness of March has nally arrived in college basketball. Having trouble making sense of it all? No problem. Here are 10 things you should know about this years NCAA tournament: ___ FIRST FOUR The NCAA tournament hasnt started on Thursday for years, but there may be more interest than ever in the four First Four games played Tuesday and Wednesday in Day ton, Ohio. Sure, Albany and Mount St. Marys are probably playing for a chance to be whipped by overall No. 1 seed Florida, and the winner of Cal Poly-Texas Southern will have to face unbeaten Wichita State. But the other two games feature some notable names: Iowa and Tennessee are vying to be the No. 11 seed and North Carolina State and Xavier will battle to be the No. 12 seed in the South Region. It didnt matter what seed or where we were going, Im just excited for the opportunity, said the Hawkeyes Aaron White. Were in. Thats all you can ask for. ___ LAST FOUR The drama of Selection Sunday often centers on the teams that were left out, and this year was no different. SMU didnt have consecutive losses until ending the regular season with defeats to Louisville and Memphis, but a loss to Houston in its AAC tournament opener bumped the Mustangs from the NCAA tournament to the NIT. Florida State, Green Bay and Georgetown were also left hanging when the nal teams were placed in the bracket. ___ REGION TO WATCH Even coaches who landed in other regions pointed to the Midwest as the most brutal road to the Final Four in Arlington, Texas. Along with the topseeded Shockers, you have two of the hottest teams in the country in Louisville and Michigan who played in last years national title game and perennial power houses Duke and Kentucky. You can analyze it a lot of different ways, said Kansas State coach Bruce Weber, whose team will face Kentucky in the 8-9 matchup on Friday in St. Louis. Were going to have to play and it doesnt matter who you play. Youve got to play good basketball. ___ BEWARE THE 12 SEEDS Just about every year, it seems a No. 12 seed rises up to knock off a No. 5 seed. Three of them did it last year in Oregon, Mississippi and California. And each of the 12-5 games in this years tour nament offers reason to be wary. Stephen F. Austin, which plays VCU, hasnt lost since November. North Dakota State heads into its game 10 things for you to know about the NCAA tournamentSEE TOURNEY | A11The time of year is upon us, with the naming of the eld and the ensuing rush to ll out NCAA Tournament brackets. Yet there are still those out there to whom it is a foreign concept, as I just discovered while try ing to get a friendly challenge going. I was just trying to explain to News-Sun staff photographer Katara Simmons, who seemed overly ummoxed as I handed her an empty bracket, you stand just as good a chance as any one. Less than ve minutes later, I showed her the bracket that I had just rapidly lled out, showing how little thought it really takes. But I have absolutely no knowledge of any of this, she replied with a tinge of angst. You know this stuff. That certainly hasnt helped me very much in the past, as Im sure many of you fellow sports afcionados will attest to. Id even say that knowing this stuff is often a hinderance, bringing about over thinking and second guessing. Which is why of the three brackets Ive lled out so far this year two in the ESPN Challenge and this most recent one Ive probably taken less than 10 minutes all told. The only thing I can say Im in the know on is my past failings. Being from the Midwest, I recognize that I often over value teams from the Big Ten, which usually comes back to burn me. I also know that there are going to be a fair share of upsets, but it is rare that I pick the right ones. And this years tournament is one that is likely to go haywire, with no real dominant, standabove-the-rest team. The likely one-anddone players at Kansas, Kentucky and Duke havent exactly launched their teams into the stratosphere, but have made them very good. On the other hand, the experts talk a lot about teams like Wichita State, Louisville, Florida and Michigan State, who are also very good, due to having teams with a lot of experience. A lot of very good teams, with varying strengths, but these arent the days of the powerhouse Dukes or UNLVs or Georgetowns. And so a lot of what might seem like upsets, really wont be all that shocking. Each year I think I understand more, at least what traps not to fall into, and yet as I look at this bracket I hastily lled out, I see my habits are still with me. I have three Big Ten teams in the Sweet 16, two in the Elite Eight, Brackets bring about annual angst AND ANOTHER THING..Dan HoehneSEE BRACKETS | A11 M C Y K

www.newssun.comWednesday, March 19, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A11 the LMP2 Honda Perfor mance Technology car and even the innovative DeltaWing holding the race lead for a time. It was in the last half hour that the Marsh Racing Corvette Daytona Prototype went off course near Turn 10, setting up an exciting NASCAR-like dash to the nish. This marked the 62nd running of Americas oldest road race and the rst to be run under the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship. RACE FROM PAGE A8 Allan Ayala/Special to the News-SunRyan Dalziel zips under the bridge at Turn 17 Saturday and would drive the No. 1 HPD ARX-03b to a secondplace nish. against Oklahoma featur ing a dynamic playmaker in Taylor Braun. The winner of North Carolina State-Xavier will have some momentum heading into a game against No. 5 seed Saint Louis. And Ivy League champ Harvard has won eight straight as it prepares to face Cincinnati. ___ IF THE SHOE FITS Sure, the notion of a Cinderella has become cliche, but its also one of the endearing elements of the NCAA tournament. So is there a team seeded lower than 12 that has a chance to make some noise? How about Tulsa, led by Danny Manning, in its opener against UCLA? After all, they called his 1988 championship Kansas team Danny and the Miracles for a reason. And dont forget the Golden Hurricanes upset the Bruins in the rst round of the 1994 tour nament. UCLA is a very talented team, Manning said. They ended up winning the (Pac-12) tournament title. They played very well in that game and theyve got really good players that Ive seen and watched for a very long time. Weve got our hands full, but I like the matchup. ___ POTENTIAL REMATCHES The NCAA selection does its best to make sure teams that faced each other in the regular season, such as conference rivals, dont meet early in the NCAA tournament. But that doesnt mean there arent some tasty potential rematches. Kansas could face New Mexico, a team it beat in December, if both win their opener in the South Region. Saint Josephs could get a chance to avenge a 30-point whipping by No. 2 seed Villanova in the third round, and fth-seeded Saint Louis could get another crack at Wichita State in the Sweet 16. ___ BLUE BLOODS There are 14 schools that have won multiple NCAA championships. All but two of them Indiana and San Francisco are in this years eld. The list is topped by UCLA, the fourth seed in the South, with its 11 national titles. The Bruins are joined there by No. 1 seed Flor ida and second-seeded Kansas. Oklahoma State won its titles as Oklahoma A&M, and is the No. 9 seed in the West. Cincinnati, UConn, North Carolina and Michigan State inhabit the East, and Duke, Kentucky and North Carolina State resides in the Midwest. ___ NEWCOMERS There are two newcomers to this years party, Cal Poly and North Carolina Central. Cal Poly got in despite its 13-19 record when reserve guard Ridge Shipley hit a 3-pointer with 13.7 seconds left for a 6159 victory over Cal State Northridge in the Big West title game, and NC Central punched its ticket in only its seventh season in Division I by beating Morgan State 71-62 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference title game. Its a testament to what these guys do emotional stamina and mental toughness, said Cal Polys Chris Eversley. It started with the coaching staff and the guys we brought in guys that were willing to buy into our program both offensively and defensively. ___ ODDS It was no surprise that Florida was installed as the early favorite to win the national championship by the Las Vegas casinos. Several that put out lines immediately after the bracket was revealed had the Gators at 4-1. Michigan State, Arizona and Kansas were in the next tier of favorites, followed by a group that included Wichita State, Virginia, Duke, Syracuse and Louisville. ___ HOME COOKING Several teams are going to feel right at home for their opening games of the tournament. And several teams are going to feel like its a road game. Florida plays the Albany-Mount St. Marys winner in Orlando, and UCLA takes on Stephen F. Austin in San Diego. Syracuse heads down the road to Buffalo for its game against Western Michigan. Baylor will face Nebraska in San Antonio, Wisconsin plays American in Milwaukee, and Duke will open against Mercer in Raleigh, N.C. Were just excited to be in the tournament, rst of all, and then being a 2 seed in Milwaukee, I mean, its going to be playing close to home, just means you did something good this year, said the Badgers Josh Gasser. You get rewarded for what youve done. TOURNEY FROM PAGE A8 and even have one winning the whole thing. Nothing is at stake, really, just the frenzied fun of seeing which of my brackets, if any, turn out well. Frenzied fun might be sugar coating it though, which is why I took the preemptive measure of shaving my head so I wont have any hair to pull out as I likely see at least one of my brackets imploding by the end of the rst day. Katara still seems reluctant to join in the fun, as much as I assure her that when it comes to lling out an NCAA Tournament bracket, ignorance is most often bliss.Dan Hoehne is the News-Sun Sport Editor, he can be reached at daniel.hoehne@newssun.com. BRACKETS FROM PAGE A8 BRIAN MAHONEYAP Basketball WriterNEW YORK Phil Jackson has returned to the New York Knicks as their team president. The Knicks announced Jacksons hiring Tuesday at a news conference in the lobby of Madison Square Garden, where a giant sign reading Welcome Home Phil was overhead and shirts with the No. 18 Jackson wore as a player lined the racks in the merchandise store. Jackson was a member of the Knicks championship-winning teams in 1970 and 1973, but they havent won a title since. Jackson went on to become the leagues most successful coach, winning 11 championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls. This will be his first time as an executive and the Knicks say he will be in charge of all basketball decisions. Steve Mills will remain as general manager.Phil Jackson returns to Knicks as team presidentComing home: Phil Jackson returns as team president to a Knicks club long in need of a titleGAINESVILLE Florida coach Billy Donovan has triggered two more bonuses in his contract. Donovan gets $50,000 for the top-ranked Gators nishing in the top 10 in the nal Associated Press poll, which was released Monday. He also earns $25,000 for being named the APs Southeastern Conference coach of the year, also announced Monday. Those bring his total to $187,500 and he could garner more bonuses. Donovan already has earned $50,000 for winning the SEC regular-season title, $25,000 for the SEC tournament and $37,500 for making the NCAA tournament. The NCAA bonus would increase to $75,000 for advancing to the Sweet 16, $100,000 for making the Final Four and $150,000 for winning the national championship.

Rinse, dont soak.Due to their fragile nature, the berries should be lightly rinsed to remove surface dirt. Do not allow them to sit in water for very long because they tend to take on more water and will become mushy.3. Firm and ripeWhen selecting berries for jellied products, ripe berries are best, but not overripe ones. Choose those that have For strawberries, look for the smaller, juicier berries instead of larger types that are available today.

If so, I would love some feedback on how they turned out. I love any kind of squash and I cook zucchini at home for Lauren and my self often. We usually cut them into long strips, marinate them in rosemary, garlic and olive oil, then roasted them on the top rack of our grill. I like to put some mesquite chips in the charcoal to give them a touch of smoky avor. Thats one way of pre paring zucchini, but there are countless others and the one I have for you is different, healthy, fun to prepare and it will impress your dinner guests. Its kind of a twist on coleslaw and has bright colors and nice texture. Zucchini apple slaw would be a great side dish at your next barbecue or any other gathering where there is going to be food. I would also make the tra ditional coleslaw and potato salad and put your zucchini slaw in the middle. You might be sur prised and how many of your guests will like it after taking a bite. You could also use it as a topping of something like a pulled pork sandwich or a veggie burger. If you dont have the caraway seed, I suggest picking some up at the mar ket. It is a key avor it this slaw and paired with the apple, it is wonderful. Cheers, Chef.ZUCCHINI APPLE SLAWYields 16 four oz. portions 3 oz. Vinegar, Cider 2 tbs. Sugar, Granulated 2-1/4 tsp.

BOGO can mean big savings to those trying to be frugal. Many consumers take advantage of the BOGO sales, but did you know that when you pair a BOGO sale and coupon, there is magic? You will save 50 percent-plus on those items that you can pair with a coupon. Last week pasta sauce was BOGO at my local grocery store with a sav ings of $1.29. This was great timing because there was also a $1.00/2 pasta sauce coupon available clipped from the Sunday paper. With the coupon you ended up paying only $0.15 each. That is a stock up price. At this price even if you didnt eat this brand of pasta sauce, you could donate it. Below are a few questions sent in by readers on BOGO cou pons. This week, Angela P. asked what to do with a BOGO coupon and sale? Tanya, I recently spotted a Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) Sale on Body wash and I also have a BOGO coupon for that exact product. How many do I need to buy with my coupon? Angela, that is a great question. The short answer is you only need to buy two total and both will be free. It can be confusing when it comes to matching up a sale with a coupon and knowing what you and cant do. With a Buy One Get One Free sale (BOGO) the requirement is to buy two of that item. With a BOGO coupon the requirement is the same. The store is offering the sale because it loves us. The manufacturer is offering the coupon to help save money and try a new product. By knowing how coupons work, you are able to take advantage of the sale and the coupon. Buy two body wash and use your BOGO coupon. When the cashier sub-to tals the register, the rst body wash will come off automatically. Next, present you coupon and the second body wash will come off leaving you pay ing only tax and your two bottles of body wash completely free. That is so exciting when you can get free items with your coupons. Even if you cant use the product, someone can and then you bless others by donating. Tanya, with a Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) sale, how many coupons can I use? Tina B. Another great question, Tina, and a very impor tant one, too. By knowing your store policies and the limit on coupons, you will save a bundle and check out will be a breeze. Typically with a BOGO sale, you can use a coupon on each item. Example: Orange juice is buy one get one free for $2.99. You can use two $1.00/1 orange juice coupons equals $0.99 for both bottles of juice. You are saving 66 percent by buy ing the juice with your coupon instead of waiting until you need it and missing the sale and coupon. The secret to saving money with coupons isnt just clipping the coupon; it is knowing when to use that coupon. Using the coupon with a sale is the best plan.

We gave each other our phone passwords as soon as we made it ofcial to avoid keeping things from each other. One night I had a sud den urge to go through his phone. I had never done it before, and when I looked at his Facebook messages, I saw he had been exchanging inappropriate pictures with someone. I was shocked and angry, and it almost ended our relationship. He deleted and blocked this person, and I forgave him. We dont talk about it anymore. I havent noticed any oth er red ags, but now, when hes asleep or goes somewhere and leaves his phone at home, just looking at it upsets me. Ill put a pillow or a blanket over it so I can forget its there. I dont know if I should take another peek to make sure hes staying on the straight and narrow, or if ignorance is bliss. What do you think? UNSURE GUY IN TEXASDEAR UNSURE GUY: Ignorance ISNT bliss. Being able to trust the man youre with is, and if it turns out you cant, its better that you know sooner rather than later. It appears you still have some unresolved trust issues with him that need to be discussed. Between you and me, if he was trying to con ceal something, he probably wouldnt be leaving his phone exposed and vulnerable to checking. DEAR ABBY: Im 39 and have been married for 12 years. My wife is 35. When we rst got to gether, my wife did not want to have kids right away. She said may be after I graduated from college, or per haps we could adopt. It took more time because of some surgeries, but I have graduated now and I want to start a family. She now says she thought I was kidding when we were talking about it all those years ago, and that I knew she never wanted kids. I am at a loss. I love this wom an, but I do want children, or to adopt a baby if thats not possible but she says shes unwilling to do either. What am I to do? WANTS TO BE A DAD IN CHARLOTTE, N.C.DEAR WANTS TO BE A DAD: You either accept that you will be childless, or talk to an attor ney about divorcing a woman who appears to have deceived you. How sad! DEAR ABBY: I was en gaged to my ex-girlfriend for three years. We broke up more than a year ago her choice. We reconciled briey, but are now broken up for good, and shes dating someone else. My question is about the engagement ring. It didnt bother me that she kept it until recently. Should I ask for the ring back or let it go? If you think I should ask for it, should I do it faceto-face or through some other messaging? MOVING ON IN KENTUCKYDEAR MOVING ON: When your ex-girlfriend broke the engagement, she should have returned the engagement ring. That she didnt indicates she is either ignorant regarding the rules of etiquette, or that she plans to keep it regardless of what the custom is. (If its the latter, youre fortunate to be rid of her.) I do NOT recommend asking for the ring via text or a phone call out of the blue. Your chanc es might be better if you ask in person.

Forest Ritenour and Nathaniel Orrel gave a very informative talk about the projects that they are participating in. The duo have planted 20 orange trees in Highlands Hammock 10 Hamlins and 10 Valencias. The scouts brought their own tools and worked in areas that had once been private property, where an early Highlands County pioneer had planted an orange grove. Over the years the trees have died away, but the grove is consid ered an important cultural artifact, which is why former park ser vice specialist Dorothy Harris and former park manager Steven Dale were happy to help with this proj ect. The scouts are planning to canoe the white waters of Minnesota with the proceeds from the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club. Boy Scout Troop 808 has about 20 current members.

The home at 1351 Memorial Drive is placed very close to the roadway, leaving very little space to put plants. Pamela Gombita was presented with the Yard of the Month award for her use of variety and color to good advantage. A splitleafed philadendron sits beside the entryway. Sev eral blooming hibiscus and an azalea bush line up across the front of the home, interspersed with curly leafed crotons. Bor dering the circular drive are several rose bushes, palm trees and a bougainvillea bush. A row of ligustrum forms a dividing line between properties. Gombita has used several pots for display. Two large potted ferns ank double doors at the side of the home. Pots at the front entry hold confederate jasmine, loropetulum and poinsettias, while potted snap dragons hang from a shepherds crook. More rose bushes are encircled with white picket fencing, along the driveway. In the side yard, you nd a lime tree, avocado tree, mango tree, and crepe myrtles. A tropical fruit-bearing cher ry tree has its place in the side yard. An unusual combination of a white bauhinia (orchid) tree growing up through another tree is found in the front of the home. Other plants in the yard include pygmy date palms, mandevilla, cape honeysuckle, Norfolk Island pine and yucca. Although this seems like a large variety of plants for this small yard, every thing has its space and it all comes together in a pleasing arrangement. To recommend a yard, call 452-1927.

MCYK B4 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, March 19, 2014 www.newssun.com When people rst hear the Dinner Divas gone Pa leo, they almost always say the same thing: Oh I know this Paleo diet is supposed to be healthy, but I could never give up [bread/potatoes/pasta/ corn/dairy/etc.]. Why is everyone so fo cused on what you cant have?,I like to twist that negative around and talk about what we can have. Now, in case you arent already familiar, a Paleo diet is a diet thats as close as possible to the one our ancestors followed thou sands of years ago. Paleo folk eat primarily local grass-fed meats, free range poultry, sustainably caught sh, nuts, seeds and organic produce stuff you can hunt or gath er (although for us nowadays, thats just eating from the perimeter of the grocery store, LOL). It might sound limiting (if you want to look at it that way), but I am here to tell you that I am a very happy camper and there is no deprivation or suffering. Quite the contrary, Im well-fed and feel better than I have in years. The following principles constitute a Paleo diet: We need to fuel our bodies with nutrients. The best source of nutrients is in plants and animals that consume plants (not grain), especially season al, organic local produce and grass fed, pastured meat. Free-range organic eggs are packed with protein, amino acids and minerals. Stress-reducing activities (massage, yoga, baths, meditation and prayer) are essential to good health and should be done daily. Exercise is impor tant, but it should involve doing activities you enjoy. Rest is an often over looked key to good health. We need to give our bodies adequate sleep so our hormones function properly. Fruit should be consumed lightly and prefer ably fruits with the color going all the way through (think raspberry as opposed to an apple) Nuts, and seeds contain vital nutrients and should be eaten daily in moderation. Rened sugar, grains, legumes, anything with gluten and packaged, processed foods are anti-nutrients and need to be avoided. Healthy fats like olive oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter and avocado do the body good. Vegetable oils (mar garine and liquid vegetable oils) are dangerous, human-made fats that should not be consumed by people. Greek yogurt, ker and cheese aged more than 120 days are acceptable forms of dairy if youre a part-time paleoista and are more primal than paleo. Wine has probiotic properties and a great nu tritional prole and can be enjoyed in moderation. Counting calories is meaningless our bodies are chemistry labs, not bank accounts. Probiotics and fer mented veggies are benecial to digestion. Bone broth is chock full of gut-healing properties and should become a staple in your diet. Be aware of your digestion and elimination and adjust accordingly. So who doesnt love bacon and butter?! Or how about wine and steak? And theres no counting calories or rationing the avocados!Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of Body Clutter and the Saving Dinner series.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club donated $1,500 to the Boy Scouts proceeds were from the World Famous Wild Game dinner. Forest Ritenour and Nathaniel Orrel gave a very informative talk about the projects that they are participating in. The duo have planted 20 orange trees in Highlands Hammock 10 Hamlins and 10 Valencias. The scouts brought their own tools and worked in areas that had once been private property, where an early Highlands County pioneer had planted an orange grove. Over the years the trees have died away, but the grove is consid ered an important cultural artifact, which is why former park ser vice specialist Dorothy Harris and former park manager Steven Dale were happy to help with this proj ect. The scouts are planning to canoe the white waters of Minnesota with the proceeds from the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club. Boy Scout Troop 808 has about 20 current members. Ritenour is an Eagle Scout, and Orrel is working towards being one, too.Lake Placid Rotarians help Boy Scouts Courtesy photoGary Johnson (from left), adult Boy Scout leader, joins scouts Nathaniel Orrel and Forest Ritenour, with Scout Master Chris Ritenour in accepting the donation from the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK It doesnt matter if your yard is postage stamp size or t for a palace to have an eyecatching landscape design. The home at 1351 Memorial Drive is placed very close to the roadway, leaving very little space to put plants. Pamela Gombita was presented with the Yard of the Month award for her use of variety and color to good advantage. A splitleafed philadendron sits beside the entryway. Sev eral blooming hibiscus and an azalea bush line up across the front of the home, interspersed with curly leafed crotons. Bor dering the circular drive are several rose bushes, palm trees and a bougainvillea bush. A row of ligustrum forms a dividing line between properties. Gombita has used several pots for display. Two large potted ferns ank double doors at the side of the home. Pots at the front entry hold confederate jasmine, loropetulum and poinsettias, while potted snap dragons hang from a shepherds crook. More rose bushes are encircled with white picket fencing, along the driveway. In the side yard, you nd a lime tree, avocado tree, mango tree, and crepe myrtles. A tropical fruit-bearing cher ry tree has its place in the side yard. An unusual combination of a white bauhinia (orchid) tree growing up through another tree is found in the front of the home. Other plants in the yard include pygmy date palms, mandevilla, cape honeysuckle, Norfolk Island pine and yucca. Although this seems like a large variety of plants for this small yard, every thing has its space and it all comes together in a pleasing arrangement. To recommend a yard, call 452-1927. Stop by the booth at the Avon Park Springtime on the Mall Festival on March 28-29, where the club will sell plants and caladium bulbs.Avon Park Yard of Month makes most of small space Courtesy photoAvon Park Founders Garden Club member Martha Goode (left) presented the Yard of the Month Award to Pamela Gombita at 1351 Memorial Drive.
