Pine St. and will review ve possible options for a street to be named after King: Cornell-Tulane-Verona: Option 1 would start at the intersection of U.S. 27 and Cornell Street, head east to South Lake Boulevard, turn south and follow the route through Tulane Drive, circling the south end of Lake Tulane, and following South Verona Avenue north back up to Main Street. Memorial Boulevard: Option 2 would have the city petition the Highlands County Commission to rename Memorial Drive from Main Street south for Cornell. That section is also called South Highlands Avenue. South Lake-Tulane-Hal McRae: Option 3 would start at the intersection of South Lake Boulevard and Hal McRae Boulevard and rename South Lake Boulevard south through Tulane Drive, and through East Hal McRae Boulevard/AP has 5 options for MLK street BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING When drivers see a wreck, especially a fatal one, they may think the matter is cleared up in the hour or more it takes to clear the road. Unlike what you may see on television, the real conclusion takes far longer. Its usually several months, said Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr. Three fatal wrecks from the last two years two in the last six months are still waiting on investigations. One has a computer compatibility issue while the others are waiting for investigative and legal processes. Carr said a wreck that killed husband and wife Francis Gero, 58, and Barbara Gero, 54, on Oct. 31, 2013, has been waiting on computer data. Their southbound 2001 Ford Focus was hit head-on and spun airborne by a 2003 Jaguar driven by Robert Goldstein, 61, of Sebring, when he lost control in a left turn lane on U.S. 27 at Sevigny & Associates Eye Care. Carr said no charges are led yet because the Jaguars inter nal computer holds key infor mation on the crash. It wasnt until late March that investigators found an information technology expert who could download the data. The computer had to be plugged into a working Jaguar before the data could even be downloaded, Carr said. They now have to send that data to Jaguar in Great Britain to be translated. The Highlands County Sher iffs Ofce has a computer forensics expert on its Crime Scene Unit to copy hard drives, then search for types of les, said Sgt. James Fennell, head of the unit.

However, this past weekend, the big beige truck made a trek to Tampa. It was one of more than 121 food trucks that took part in what has turned out to be the Worlds Largest Food Truck Rally held at the Florida State Fairgrounds. We had tried to do this last August but apparently we didnt have all the paperwork in order for the Guinness folks, said Sebrings Charles Butcher, who owns and oper ates the 1983 GM Workhorse Step-Van that doubles as a mobile restaurant. The parade this past weekend almost doubled the standing Guinness Book of World Records mark of 62, set last year in Miami. Butcher did not participate in that event. Reportedly, there were a total of 225 mobile food vendors that showed up at the state fairgrounds last weekend. However, only trucks that displayed photographs of food were permitted to participate in the actual record-breaking attempt. You had to have your signs and your logo on the side, and you had to have a food product that you cooked, Butcher said. They didnt take slushie vendors or any thing like that you actually had to produce food out of the truck. Following the parade, the trucks set up at the Florida State Fairgrounds and served to the crowds that came in to sample their wares. Butcher said he did a brisk business selling the gator bites for which he has become famous. Saturday we got rained out, but Sunday was a lot better, he said. Trucks reportedly came from as far away as New York to participate with others driving in from Alabama and Mississippi to be part of the record-breaking effort. Butcher became aware of the rally through his membership on the Not Your Or dinary Food Truck Facebook page. The Loan Around Cafe has returned to Highlands County now and will take up its normal spot weekdays at Lowes. I also do special events. For instance, we set up when the Friends of the Hammock have their concerts at Highlands Hammock State Park and I also set up C&S Auctions when they do their events on Tuesday and Friday nights.Local entrant takes part in food truck world recordLoan Around Cafe truck goes to Tampa for rally Courtesy photoThe Loan Around Cafe was parked beneath the big ferris wheel at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa this past weekend, getting ready to participate in a parade which set a new world record.

We hope it doesnt get lost in the never ending parade of days, weeks and months given over to worthy causes. According to safehorizon.com, in 2010 more than 1,500 children died as a result of abuse or neglect. Eighty percent of them were younger than four; 48 percent were not yet a year old. We all know child abuse is not some thing that happens somewhere else. Weve grieved for children in our own community, and, sadly, probably will again. When a local law enforcement of cer shakes his girlfriends baby to death and a pair of young parents in Sebring actually neglect their baby until he starves, you know child abuse is a constant threat everywhere. It is everybodys obligation to report abuse, said Jeff Roth, director of the Champion for Children Advocacy Center. But because determining what consti tutes physical abuse is not always a sim ple thing, it is not the publics responsibility to investigate. For example, punishment practices differ culture to culture and family to fami ly. What might be considered a necessary spanking by the parents appalls someone else. People dont want to send in reports that would be deemed discipline, Roth said. For criminal purposes there has to be an intent to harm the child. That doesnt mean we look the other way. We have to be vigilant and pay at tention to the world around us, not just our own little space of earth, Roth quick ly added. The goal is to prevent abuse in the rst place, he said. A special volunteer committee is looking at that challenge. It is developing a ve-year prevention plan, targeting four specic areas: substance misuse; inadequate supervision; family violence; and physical injury. In the course of its study, Roth said, the committee discovered an unexpected problem. While there are successful programs for at-risk families in the county, many do not take advantage of them because they dont have a car. One of the biggest challenges, said Roth, is getting help to people who need it. Transportation raised its head many times. Its the biggest obstacle to helping families. We have to face facts. If we really are committed to our children were going to have to spend money and become involved. We have a lot to think about. Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month is a perfect time.Child abuse a problem everywhereCornerstone recognizes volunteersTo the average person, having someone hold your hand, walk your dog or acknowledge your service to the nation with a salute is a nice gesture. For hospice patients, such actions can mean the difference between liv ing life to the fullest and dying. Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care offers a variety of services to our patients including respite care, Pet Peace of Mind and our veterans program, Cornerstone SALUTES! These programs contribute to our overall mission to give dignity and comfort to people during their most difcult journey. Most of these services are provided thanks to 53 Hardee and Highlands county volunteers who are among 900 trained volunteers committed to helping patients and their families across our seven-county Central Florida ter ritory. These volunteers provided more than 45,000 hours in 2013, realizing a cost savings of $1,004,608. While a federal mandate under Medicare requires 5 percent of all hospice patient care hours to be provid ed by trained volunteers, Cornerstone Hospice is proud that our volunteer contribution exceeds 7.3 percent and we are on our way to reach our 2014 goal of 8 percent volunteer hour assistance. On behalf of the employees, facility partners and families served by Cor nerstone Hospice, we want to recognize our dedicated volunteers during the observance of National Volunteer Week (April 6-12, 2014) as well as all volunteers who make our communities great places to live. Should the chance to make a difference in someones life tug at your hospice heart, we invite you to call us at 382-4563 to learn more about volunteering at Cornerstone Hospice.CHUCK LEE, CEOCornerstone Hospice and Palliative CareFilm faithful to BibleTV host Glenn Beck and other stalwarts of the Christian right have attacked the recent blockbuster Noah as being pro-animal and unfaithful to the Bible. Well, yes and no. The lm is both pro-animal and faithful to the Bible, at least to the Book of Genesis, our only source for the story of Noah. After all, Genesis 1:29 admonishes Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree that has seed-yielding fruit to you it shall be for food. It is only after the ood, with fruits and vegetables no longer abundant, that humans get permission to eat animal esh. Even then, the Bible stipulates that lives of only select animals may be taken and always with reverence and minimal cruelty. This is certainly a far cry from todays factory farm and slaughterhouse practices. Regardless of how we may feel about Noahs interpretation of the Bible, each of us can recreate the recommended diet of the Garden of Eden in our home by dropping animal products from our menu.STEWART GILPINSebringEducation Spring the rise of public education advocates against the business-backed privatization movement is spreading across the country and has nally reached Washington. But if youre wondering why standardized testing is caus ing such a stink these days (after all didnt we manage OK with the SAT, ACT and other tests?) all you have to do is go back to where this all started in Texas. Providing cautionary tales to the rest of the country is a public service we provide here. Youre welcome. Heres the rub: No Child Left Behind, an outdated law begging for replacement, requires every eighth-grader to pass a standardized test in math. Texas also requires students taking Algebra I to pass a state standardized test, and many children take Algebra I in the eighth grade, which means many Texas eighth-graders have to pass two math tests, only one of which actually counts. The other is just to satisfy NCLB, which was based on an ear lier Texas law in the rst place. The state education agency asked the federal education agency for permission not to double-test eighth-graders. Texas is where high-stakes testing was born, so when Texas is asking for relief you know things have gotten a little out of hand. But this month Sec. Arne Duncan denied the request, which means next month hundreds of thousands of Texas 14-yearolds will learn an important lesson, but not one about math. Giving one child two tests in the same subject to satisfy a federal law that never worked and no one wants anymore is a bi-partisan failure. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama are fundamentally wrong that we can use standardized tests as a measuring stick to make our children, in effect, taller. The only thing we accomplish by double-testing eighth-graders is revealing not just that the emper or has no clothes but hes sleeping off a bender in a Dumpster. Everywhere you look Education Spring is breaking out. The anti-test rebellion that started in Texas two years ago has spread to other states. The National Conference of State Legislatures reports that 179 bills dealing with K-12 testing have been introduced. A bipar tisan bill in the Virginia Assembly backed by teachers unions and the new gover nor, would cut the number of tests from 34 to 26. New York has capped how much time schools devote to testing while Missouri reduced it. And in California, state ofcials won a standoff with Sec. Duncan over their insistence that it made no sense to collect data that compared the apples of an old test to the oranges of a new test. March was a big month for the pushback against high-stakes testing as it nally breached the walls of congress. On March 6, Reps. Chris Gibson (R-N.Y.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) introduced a bill to move from annual testing to gradespan testing, or testing once every few years. This would save millions of dollars, reduce testing abuse, and free classrooms to innovate new ways to educate children. Obviously, it has no chance of passing. Another Arizona Democrat Rep. Ral Grijalva became the rst to support the Network for Public Educations call for congressional hearings into the misuse and abuse of standardized tests. Since the federal education budget ri vals what we spend on defense, it might be nice to examine what were getting for all our tax dollars. But none of that is what is grabbing the national headlines when it comes to education. That honor goes to Hillary Clinton, who attended a higher education conference with ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sec. Duncan at the George W. Bush presidential library. The public education advocates opposing test-based reforms are going to need a lot more repower to convince Hillary shes hanging out with the wrong crowd. Even so, few expected the mutiny against high-stakes testing to get this far. But if angry parents can convince Texas legislators to offer testing relief where they previously only preached the empty gospel of rigor, then anything is possible. Its been a long, cold winter, and at long last, Education Spring might be arriving.Jason Stanford is a Democratic consultant who writes columns for the Austin American-Statesman and MSNBC.

Also, deputies dont do trafc homicide investigations. They turn cases over to Florida Highway Patrol. FHP is still working on a fatal wreck from Jan. 4 in Sebring. Holly Fadely, 62, and Allen Wilson, 60, residents of Fairmount Mobile Estates, died after a speeding truck hit them and two other pedestrians on Seattle Avenue, at the edge of their park. The truck then hit a steel-reinforced concrete power pole. Driver Gregory Tocci, 54, of Sebring, died Jan. 7 at Lakeland Regional Medical Center from his injuries. The trafc homicide report is still not ready, FHP Public Information Ofcer Lt. Greg Bueno said Monday. He said the fact that Tocci died doesnt complicate the matter. FHP would still be waiting for medical results in this case, the medical examiners report along with several agency review steps. Bueno said the trafc homicide investigator has been working diligently, but has several other cases. Troopers who cover Highlands County also cover DeSoto, Hardee, Manatee and Sarasota Counties, which is only the north half of F Troops coverage area. Every investigation is different, Bueno said. We try to have time standards. Sometimes they take longer than others. One of the longest local cases is the death of Peggy Sue Roaf, 52, of Sebring on March 28, 2012. The driver at fault Nicholas Steven Fox, 33, of Fort Lauderdale was booked into Highlands County Jail on Feb. 3 this year, and is being held without bond on two counts of failing to appear for the felony offenses of vehicular homicide and driving without a valid drivers license. At approximately 6:30 p.m. March 28, 2012, Foxs GMC Envoy SUV swerved out of control while southbound on U.S. 27, crossed the median near Alan Jay Automotive Headquarters, hit a raised concrete drain, went air borne and landed on top of Roafs Ford Focus, killing her instantly. Fox wasnt charged until almost a year later on March 11, 2013. Fox was reported to be under the inuence at the time, but police had trouble getting a witness statement and Fox, who was from Broward County, took a while to nd and charge. Fox had ve passengers, two of them minors. All were treated and released at Highlands Regional Medical Center.News-Sun reporter Samantha Gholar and correspondents Barry Foster and Christopher Tufey contributed to this report.

TALLAHASSEE (AP) In spite of some Republican opposition, state legislators keep moving forward with a bill that would allow quali ed Florida students to pay in-state college tuition rates even if they are in the country illegally. The latest vote came Tuesday in the Senate Judiciary Committee where a version of the bill (SB 1400) was approved by a 7-2 vote. Two GOP legislators voted no. The approval came after a contentious hearing where a Republican executive committee leader from Santa Rosa County complained the bill would hurt the campaign of Gov. Rick Scott this fall. Four years ago, Scott was in favor of tougher immigration laws, but now he favors the Senate bill. The Florida House has already passed the bill although there are some differences between the House and Senate bills.In-state tuition bill moves closer to final vote M C Y K

The News-Sun will be the companys rst tri-weekly newspaper. We think a newspaper is there for a community. We think a newspaper is to focus on the community, what it needs, what kind of forum do they have to express themselves all of these things are very important.

SUN FROM PAGE A1 Classified ads get results! Call 314-9876 BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Personal experiences often spark an individuals interest in a subject or organization. That happens to be the case with local hairstylist Jeanne Brown and the American Cancer Societys Relay for Life. Brown, 63, was diagnosed with cancer last August. After a hysterectomy, Brown beat the disease with no further treatment or therapy. I was very fortunate, Brown said. Browns cancer survivor status and new attitude toward life made her a perfect candidate to be named the honorary chair at the annual Sebring Relay for Life walk which will be held Saturday, April 12, from 6 p.m. through 7 a.m. on Sunday at Firemens Field. The cause is something very close to Browns heart. Though she has been touched by a less common type of the disease, Brown knows that cancer knows no bounds whatsoever. (Uterine cancer) isnt talked about a lot and thats just not good. All you ever hear about is breast cancer or lung cancer, but there are some that are less common and there needs to be more awareness of all the cancers out there, Brown said. My great grandmother died from uterine cancer. My grandfather had lung cancer. I lost my mother to leukima in 1989. My husband is also a survivor. He beat prostate cancer back in 1999 and he was fortunate as well. After removing the cancer, he didnt have to have any further treatment either, Brown said. So in our family, its been a full circle, its come all the way back around. Brown is adamant about spreading more awareness and getting people more involved in Relay. People need to be checked out and to get involved. Thats why I am doing this to support those who werent as for tunate as me or my husband, to support those who are still ghting, Brown said. In Highlands County, the three Relay events in Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring contribute to a pool of over 5,000 walks each year. In 2013, the three cities Relays combined raised a total of $163,000 for the American Cancer Society. Brown, along with hundreds of other supporters and participants, will take to their events this spring with a grateful spirit and remember the purpose behind each and every step during their walks. Lake Placid will kick of Relay season in Highlands County this Friday beginning at 6 p.m. at the Lake Placid High School stadium.

Its impor tant that we are the light for these children who feel like their lives are in darkness, Scanga said. Barbara Moss, executive director of One Hope United, gave the basic principles of the organization. Our promises are leadership; we need the right leaders to save these children from harm. Collaboration is another promise. This community has a heart for people and a heart for children. Every one works together here. The next promise is innovation. We in this county and in this state are going through a systematic change that is targeting these children and keeping up with the children in their homes to help keep them safe while not disturbing the home situations. The last promise is hope. We hope for a better future for all of the children, Moss said. The presentation included a dramatic monologue from Simple Acts Productions Shealyn MacCool and Megan Glisson, a song by local rising art ist Cammie Lester and remarks by Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin. Houchin, who has worked many abused children cases over his career, shared a story regarding fellow ASA Courtney Lenharts case regarding a young girl who was sexually abused from the age of 5 to 15. The girl, who was not identied, over came her tragic childhood to go on and graduate from high school and is currently attending college thanks to the support, guidance and watchful eye of Lenhart. True success stories are hard to come by, Houchin said. We are truly blessed that in this community we have so many resources for child abuse in this very county.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.

Special to the News-SunVENUS On March 27, more than 200 people gathered at The Beach Club in Palm Beach to learn more about Archbold Biological Station. We couldnt be more thrilled. The evening allowed us to provide memorable moments of connection to Archbold from premiering a new video, to a live auction with unique auction items, to a heartfelt speech from a 10-year-old Archbold enthusiast, Executive Director Hilary Swain said. Sebastian de Atucha, chairman of the event committee, said, Our guests really had fun and we generated signicant enthusiasm. We also had the opportunity to honor our founders. My great uncle, Richard Archbold, established the Station in 1941. He was succeeded by my grandparents, Frances Archbold and Page Hufty, longtime residents of Palm Beach. Frances served as chair of our board for 37 years. We advanced our goal to honor our legacy and invite other to join us in transforming the future. Chair of the Board Mary Hufty presented the Archbold 2014 Science and Conservation Awareness Award to Dr. Warren G. Abrahamson, Professor Emeritus at Bucknell University, who was recognized for his transfor mative contributions to science and conservation in Florida. She also introduced the in-tern class of 2014, some of the countrys brightest young ecologists being trained at Archbold.Palm Beach group learns more about Archbold JOANNE THORPJoanne Roberta Thorp of The Villages, passed away March 7, 2014, at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville She was born in Jamestown, N.Y. on April 29, 1937 to Carroll and Elizabeth Klomp Hussey.

See A11 for the full race results.SCHULT WINS HOME RUN 4 HABITAT 5K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Another season of beginners pickleball is drawing to a close at Tanglewood. Wayne Roswell and Joann Bath taught beginners for years and then passed the torch to Mel McDonald, a former couch potato, who was ably assisted this year by Tom Stadler, Vicki Buck, Dave Werry and other experienced members of the Tanglewood Pickleball Club. On Monday, March 24, a tournament was planned with a potluck to follow. Unfortunately, the rain forced the tournament to be postponed until March 31 but the rain couldnt stop the party. More than 40 gathered to enjoy a feast featuring pulled pork and chicken wings augmented by a wide range of side dishes and desserts brought by the attendees. The meal nished up when a cake was brought out to celebrate Mel McDonalds 81st birthday. Fifteen rst-year play ers competed in the tour nament on the 31st with a few slightly more seasoned players joining in. Organizer, Tom Stadler, chair of the Tanglewood Pickleball Club kept things moving with each participant playing ve mixed doubles games with a different partner for each game. Games were to 11 points and scores from each game were totaled to determine the top players. Leading the ladies with 53 points was Val Burrows. In second place was Laura Matthews with 49 while Connie Klinepeter nished third after accumulating 45 points. The mens competition was very close with Rich Mieling coming out on top with 53 points. Tied for second were Darwin Liverance and Gordon Armitage, each with totals of 51. Pickleball is a game ideally suited to active seniors it is competitive, fast paced and social. Every one of the newbies interviewed talked of how they love their new found sport and how welcoming everyone is at the courts. Bonnie Larson-Knight was been most impressed by the sportsmanship shown by all of the play ers. Shes learned quickly with great help from the coaches and her fellow players. Gordon Armitage is adding a lot of new activities to keep him healthy in retirement. First golf, then tai chi and now pickleball. Each has allowed him to meet great new people. He had never heard of pickleball and is thrilled to be able to get his exer cise without spending so much time in the gym. Jerry Grifns doctor wanted him to ght diabetes with exercise and said that riding around a golf course in a cart didnt count. Pickleball is proving to be an enjoyable way to keep the doctor happy. His wife, Sharon, enjoys the stiff competition and the camaraderie of pickleball. When Dan Hamilton returns to Owensboro, KY, he is going to try to get pickleball courts painted on the under-used tennis courts. Diane and Dave Keller tried pickleball, liked it and keep coming back be cause of the great people. When they return home to the Canton N.Y. area, theyll be checking to see what facilities are available there. Julia Hinshaw told husband, Paul, that he needed to exercise. Friends had been asking them to give pickleball a try so they came out and Paul has already lost eight pounds. Julia likes the fact that everyone has been so receptive and accepting of them, despite their limited skills. When they get back to Finlay, Ohio, theyll be joining pickleball at the local seniors center. Each year thousands more take up the game across the continent and dozens more give pickleball a try here at Tanglewood. Get out and take a look for yourself. Tanglewood beginners meet at 3 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays and have a great time making new friends and working off the pounds.Pickleball pays off for beginners Special to the News-SunConnie Klinepeter sends a forehand back over the net during Tangle wood Pickleball competition Monday. BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Will there be a time where we can have a ve-run lead and Ill be happy? Lake Placid head coach D.W. Daum grumbled as his squad headed into the bottom of the seventh with an 8-3 lead. An 8-3 lead that would, in the end, hold up. His angst was wellfounded, of course. A little over a month ago, the Blue Streaks had thumped the Dragons by a 13-3 score, and the heart of the Sebring order was due to come to the plate. Not to mention, while Tyler Carr had pitched his team up to this point, his pitch-count had risen and Paul Cantwell was tabbed to get the nal three outs. Lake Placid had drawn rst blood, scratching for a run on a Laine Daum RBI single off of Blue Streak starter Ever ett Hurst in the top of the rst. Sebring tied it up in the bottom of the second, however, with David DeGenaro driving Seth Cannady home with a single to right. And the Streaks took the lead an inning later. Cullen Lovett started it with a single to center and stole second with one out. Jimmy Peck powered a double to deep left-center to bring Lovett in, and Pecks run came across via a Josh Crouch single to right for a 3-1 Blue Streak lead. Hurst held the Dragons in check until the fth when, with one out and a runner on rst, an error knocked things a bit off track. A hit batter loaded the bases and Alex Miller came through with a liner through the left side to make it a 3-2 game, with the bases still loaded. Carr patiently drew a walk to force home the ty ing run and pull Hurst from the game for reliever Kyle Helms. Helms, however, wasnt quite dialed in as his rst offering drilled Daum and forced home the go-ahead run. Helms then settled in, striking out the next hitter and then getting a grounder to second to end the inning. Sebring put two on in the bottom of the fth, but couldnt cash in, and Lake Placid soon opened it up. With two out in the top of the sixth, Justin Mason, Isaiah Velasquez and Miller hit consecutive singles to load the bases. Carr followed with a sharp single to left, plating two, with Daum then drawing a walk to reload the bases. Then, a shot off Justin LaRosas bat couldnt be corralled and two more runs came across to put the Dragons up to that 8-3 margin they carried into the seventh, which gave their manager little comfort. But he was soon put at Dragons take down Blue Streaks Dan Hoehne/News-SunAbove: Alex Miller puts up a cloud of dirt and chalk as he slides in with the opening run in Mondays 8-3 win at Sebring. Right: Tyler Carr was nicked early, but gained steam as the game went on, striking out 12 in six innings of work LAKE PLACID8SEBRING3SEE DRAGONS | A11 Dan Hoehne/News-SunAustin Bingham drove in two runs for the SFSC Panthers Monday night. Unfortunately, thats all the team could muster as Hillsborough extend ed them to 11 innings before taking a 4-2 win in Suncoast Conference play. This puts South Florida at 5-12 in conference play, though just four games out of state tournament contention with plenty of games left to play, including tonights date at Hillsborough.PANTHERS CLIPPED BY HAWKS M C Y K

Dan Hoehne/News-SunJacob Cram reaches back to snare this foul pop for the second out of the seventh inning of Lake Placids win over Sebring Monday. Dan Hoehne/News-SunDavid DeGenaro came through with a pair of hits, a walk and an RBI Monday night at Firemens Field.ease as Cantwell started off with a strikeout, then worked around a walk to Peck to retire the next two and put the clamps on the Green Dragon win. Weve been playing well and really gelling as a team lately, Daum said. Were putting the ball in play, making plays and havent been making the mental errors. Now 7-8 on the season overall, and 3-3 in district play, Lake Placid hosted Hardee Tuesday and will work to get over .500 in District 9-4A Friday with a visit from Frostproof. Sebring, meanwhile, jumps back into District 11-5A action Thursday as they travel to Lemon Bay and will host Oviedo in a non-district tilt Friday at Firemens Field. DRAGONS FROM PAGE A8 MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE For Florida, the Final Four might as well be dubbed the Familiar Four. The top overall seed in the NCAA tournament already played the other three teams headed to Ar lington, Texas, for college basketballs most prestigious event. Floridas only losses this season came at Wisconsin (Nov. 12) and at Connecticut (Dec. 2), and the Gators (36-2) beat Kentucky three times in the same season for the rst time in program history. All that familiarity could work in Floridas favor. Then again, it might eliminate the element of sur prise in a tournament lled with short turnarounds. It denitely helps, coach Billy Donovan said Monday. It helps both teams. There will be a fa miliarity there because theyve been on the oor with those guys. ... It gives you at least a reference point of what youre dealing with there. Florida plays seventhseeded UConn in the rst seminal Saturday night. No. 2 seed Wisconsin and eighth-seeded Kentucky play in the other. The winners advance to the cham pionship game Monday night. The Gators vividly re member one thing about their last loss: All-Ameri can guard Shabazz Napiers buzzer-beater that gave the Huskies a 65-64 victory. The game was such a long time ago. It feels like it was forever, guard Scottie Wilbekin said. With Wilbekin in the locker room for the nal few minutes and getting treatment on his sprained right ankle, Florida went to a 1-3-1 zone in hopes of slowing down Napier. It didnt work. The Gators were up 62-59 with 1:18 to play, but allowed two offensive rebounds off missed 3-pointers. Napier eventually swished a 25-footer and got fouled. He completed the fourpoint play and was just getting started. After Michael Frazier II put Florida ahead 64-63 with 17 seconds left, Napier escaped a trap 30 feet from the basket and launched a wild shot that missed bad ly. With the Gators collapsing toward the basket, teammate DeAndre Daniels tipped the ball back to Napier, who swished the game-winner at the buzzer. Thats what really sticks out in my mind, but I know there were other things in the game that we didnt do very well, Frazier said. So it wasnt just that one play that helped us lose the game. There were plenty of things. But that play sticks out in my head. Florida certainly missed Wilbekins defense down the stretch against UConn. The Gators also were without backup guard Kasey Hill because of a high-ankle sprain.

News and Courier. Titled Agency Offers Pointers on How Parents Can Guide Their Childs Emotional Development, it is proof that parents and professionals of three generations ago possessed a wealth of common sense, a quality that has since become most uncommon. The subject was war the reader may remember that America was embroiled in yet another one at the timeand what parents could do to help their children cope with its realities. Keep them out of earshot when war was being discussed to prevent trauma to their fragile psyches? No. Adults should inform them of the dangers of war and the very real possibility (or so it was thought at the time) that an enemy could launch missiles at us. But wouldnt that cause a child to become fearful? Yes, but fears are not necessarily bad things. Miss Florice Langley, executive director of the Family Agency of Charleston was quoted as say ing that As long as these fears are real fears and not overly exaggerated fears they form a natural, even healthful part of a childs emotional growth. Indeed, adults were quite straightforward about such things back then. I remember, for example, crouching under my school desk dur ing air raid drills. The hypothetical bombs in question were atom bombs, which, we were told, could come raining down at any time. I dont remember any kids my age or thereabouts who were traumatized by such information. We trusted that adults knew what they were doing and would protect us as well as they could. We were also aware that as well as they could was no guar antee of safety. As Miss Langley astutely pointed out, that was a healthful thing for us to know. Kids talked about it freely, but not obsessively. We mostly planned what candy stores we would pillage if we survived. The article then quotes a prominent psychologist as saying that anxious, frustrated, tense parents can adversely affect their childrens security. In turn, the children may develop various behavior problems. Mind you, many of the sorts of problems in question are today called disorders and children, not parents, are often medicated for them. The same psychologist, a professor at Stanford University, went on to say that children should not be forbidden from play ing war games. Rather, such play should be viewed as natural outlets for emotional tensions. Its also a way, she said, of expressing a healthy rather than morbid inter est in war. Todays parents would do well to embrace the same commonsense view of their childrens imaginations. In this regard, it is interesting to note that as adult anxiety over children play ing war and cops and robbers has increased, along with prohibitions concerning such fanciful play, so has bullying. Cor relation does not prove cause, but this particular juxtaposition should make adults think twice about banning index-nger pistols and that sort of harmless stuff from their homes (and schools). The article concludes with the ever-sensible Miss Langley saying that parent anxiety over the dangers of war is the greatest danger to the emotional health of their children. Finally, she advises anxious mothers to be involved in a wider range of social and avocational activities. Amen to that for all mothers, anxious or not!John Rosemond has worked with families, children, and parents since 1971 in the eld of family psychology.

However, I often nd my self drawn to other guys who I know are nothing but trouble. It never goes further than simple irting, but I still feel guilty for doing it when Im in a relationship. How do I keep myself from temptation? HARD TO RESISTDEAR HARD TO RESIST: Temptation to do what? To involve yourself with a man who is nothing but trouble? A way to discourage that would be to ask yourself how you would feel if you lost your boyfriend. That would be a high price to pay for acting immaturely. However, if youre asking how to overcome the IMPULSE, my advice is to have an honest conversation with yourself about why you feel the need. Most of the women (and men) who act this way are constantly trying to prove to themselves that they are attractive. If this could be you, then start working on your self-esteem, because if you dont, I predict youll ruin a good relationship. DEAR ABBY: Im in my 50s and overweight. I work hard, eat three meals a day and am more or less healthy except for sore feet after work. Im aware of the medical warnings. Who isnt? But I have decided to accept myself as I am, relax and be happy. For years I have been hard on myself for not being slim. This is me in my 50s. I dont expect my self to be slim like I was in my 20s. Now I can smile, breathe easier, have a good time, and nally buy the new clothes I have put off buying until I was thinner. My new spirit is weightless and my new attitude has made my life more meaningful. Any thoughts? LIVING FREE AT LASTDEAR LIVING FREE: Only this, that we all have choices to make about our health, what is important to us and how we want to live our lives. You have made yours, and at this point it appears to have been the right one for you. May it ever be thus. DEAR ABBY: My husband has a paralyzing fear of driving over bridges. It interferes with our life together. He is otherwise healthy, but will not see a therapist for this problem. We have been married for 27 years. I am 63 and he is 67. I am very sad that our life is so limited. Any advice? LANDLOCKED IN VIRGINIADEAR LANDLOCKED: It would be interesting to know how your husband developed this phobia. But because he refuses to do anything about it and you feel restricted, consider traveling with another companion.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 2, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 I never really thought of how serious cancer could be until it showed its ugly face in our house two weeks ago. We found out that Lauren has HER2positive breast cancer and we have begun the path of recovery. We were blessed to know that the type she has, the doctors have a great medicine that was designed to treat HER2positive. We have been given so much information about the treatments that she will receive and I thought to myself How can I best help her? The answer for me is through food. I have been reading about cancer-ghting foods and I am amazed at what food can do to prevent cancer cell growth. One of the best things to eat is salmon. Its one of the few foods containing a signicant amount of vitamin D the sunshine vitamin. Increased intakes of Vitamin D can help prevent the growth of cancer cells by 24 percent. Salmon also is a great source of supercharged omega-3 fat that may kill off cancer cells and help stop the spread of the disease to other parts of the body. Another good food to eat is blueberries because they contain pterostilbene, a phytonutrient that can halt the growth of breast cancer tumors by causing the cancer ous cells to self-distrust. Fresh, frozen, farm-raised or wild, they are antioxidant packed. Pomegranate seeds are very rich with ellagic acid, a potent antioxidant that may help stop an enzyme that plays a part in breast cancer development. Because of what I have found out about cancerghting foods, this week I am giving you a salmon recipe. I think this food is best for you. So if you know someone who has breast cancer, make them some food that helps them on the pathway of recovery. I know that the dishes that I make for Lauren have a lot more thought put into them and even more love. Cheers, Chef.BBQ SALMON 6 4-ounce wild salmon loins, frozen 1/2 cup canned 100 percent pineapple juice 3-7/8 tbs. fresh lemon juice 3-7/8 tbs. dark brown sugar 1-1/2 tsp. light chili powder 1-1/8 tbs. fresh, grated lemon peel 1-1/2 tsp. ground cumin 3/4 tsp. kosher salt 3/8 tsp. ground cinnamon 1.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, April 2, 2014 www.newssun.com It seems like the more you do to feed your family properly, the harder it is to keep the grocery budget in check. Using the crock cooker is a great way to stretch a dollar for several reasons. You can use tougher, less expensive cuts of meat Traditional crock cooker meals like chili and soup tend to go a long way The convenience of this appliance saves you from spending money on take out Crock cookers use less electricity than stoves Today, Im going to share some tips with you to help you save even more money with this beloved kitchen appliance. Make your own stock. If you know me at all, you know Im pretty big on making stock. With a slow cooker, you shouldnt ever have to buy canned or boxed broth again. Simply save up bones (I keep one zipper bag for chicken bones and one for beef), trimmings and juices from your roasts and freeze them until you have enough to ll your crock pot about half full. When you have enough, put them in the crock pot, ll the crock 3/4 full with water and let it cook on low for eight hours or so. Then, you can use this homemade broth in your crock cooker recipes and for other uses. Cook more than you need. Buy a very large, inexpensive chuck roast. Even if its much more than your family needs as long as it will t in your crock pot, bring it home with you. Put it in the crock pot, ll the crock cooker half way with water (which I would do only for cheap cuts of meat), and let it cook on low for eight hours. Portion the meat and use it throughout the week in lunches and dinners. You can even freeze some of the meat to take out later in the month. Buy from the Clean 15 list. Even if you make an effort to buy or ganic whenever possible, you can save a little bit of money on your grocery bill. Use crock cooker recipes that call for ingredients from the Clean 15 instead of the Dirty Dozen list so you can buy the less expensive, conventionally grown option over organic. (You can learn more about the Clean 15 at ewg.org by the way.) Many Clean 15 items are great for slow cooking, including onions, sweet potatoes and cabbage.Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of Body Clutter and the Saving Dinner series.

WHEELCHAIR FLORIDA PAGEANT Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Randy (R.W.) Burnley, Reverse Mortgage specialist was the speaker at the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Clubs luncheon on March 27. He gave an informative talk about reverse mortgages. There is certain criteria that has to be met in or der to qualify for a reverse mortgage. First, one must be at least 62 or older. Second, one must own and occupy the home as the principal residence. Reverse mortgages are federally insured mortgage loans. There are large differ ences between reverse mortgages and a regular mortgage. The key factors are that with a traditional mortgage one must have sufcient income and debt ratio to qualify, and one is required to make monthly mortgage pay ments. The reverse mortgage is different in that it pays the homeowners. The homeowners doesnt make payments, because the reverse mortgage is not due as long as the home is the primary residence. There are numerous ways to receive the funds from a reverse mortgage such as monthly as income, lump sum, a line of credit or a combination of any of these methods. The proceeds from a reverse mortgage are loan advances and are not taxable. There are no restrictions on what one can do with the money. There are some costs involved and they are similar to those of a traditional mortgage. Like all homeownership, the homeowner is required to pay property taxes, provide insurance and maintain the home. The amount of money that one can receive depends upon several factors: your age, the value of your home, current inter est rates and the plan you choose.

During the business meeting, the club approved a $500 contribution each to Camp Wekiva and SEEK (Save Earth Environment through Knowledge). Semper gave a program of Dragonies. Most have memories of catching and playing with dragonies, often referred to as mosquito hawks. These are benecial insects, feeding on small insects like ies, bees, wasps, mosquitoes and rarely butteries. Theyre usually found near wetlands and also blacktop surfaces. They lay eggs in marshes, streams or ponds because their larvae, known as nymphs, are aquatic. Dragonies ancient lineage dates back to 300 million years. There are six families of dragonies found in Florida. Some species migrate long distances each year, seeking warm fresh water ponds to safely lay their eggs that hatch into lar vae called naiads. Naiads may spend weeks to years in the water until theyre ready to spread wings in search of food. Naiads also are predators feeding on mosquito larvae and small inver tebrates such as sh and frogs. Semper reminded every one that Central Florida is entering its mosquito season. To prevent hatchings, keep outside containers dry. Mary Roberts was awarded the orchid plant again this month. The next meeting will be April 10.TOPS 632LAKE PLACID Leader Judy OBoyle shared a quote that Susan Caldwell had brought in: Every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness. After a short discussion on that subject OBoyle had all members pledge allegiance to the ag and recited their TOPS and KOPS pledges. Vi Christian gave a program on the merits of grapeseed oil. It is good for cholesterol, good and bad, putting it around ones eyes, and has Vitamin E. Karen Goodwin took roll call with 33 members and one guest. There was another net loss as all members are trying diligently to lose those unwanted pounds. LaRue Willbur was the best loser this week. Penny Herward, LaRues daughter, was presented with her charm for losing four weeks in a row, and Theresa Rhodes received her KOPS pin. The No No for this week is pie and the Yess are strawberries and asparagus. Winners on the alphabet contest were: LaRue Willbur, Anna Harrington, Mary Jo Finn and Elaine Orr.

Everyone had a chance to take a prize home. This chapter of TOPS meets every Monday at the Womens Clubhouse in Lake Placid. Weighin is between 3-3:45 p.m. and the meeting starts at 4 p.m.GFWC Womans Club of SebringSEBRING Every president of GFWC is encouraged to have during their time in ofce a special project that will help their community. Phyllis Summers, president of the Womans Club of Sebring, has been sewing for well over 60 years and she wanted to make items that would let seniors in a nursing home feel that the community had not for gotten them and that they were loved. The Kenilworth Care & Rehabilitation Center was chosen to receive specially designed items for their residents, such as: homestyle bibs, RX bags, lap quilts, etc. On March 17, a delivery was made to the center by Summers and Johnell West. The lap robes were gratefully accepted by Louis Rodrigues, Quality of Life program director, and Barbara Stapleford, Resident Council president. Members of the Womans Club of Sebring meet once a month to complete these items. Currently there are a number of projects in the works with various members working with needles, thread, scissors, and material to complete these special projects. This is such a worthwhile project that Summers hopes the project will remain ongoing when the new president takes ofce.SNAP S HOT S LOCAL CLUBS Courtesy photoTOPS FL 632 has a new queen.

Among the latest is Secret, created by two for mer Google engineers who were looking for a way to let people deliver genuine feedback to co-workers. With the app, friends and friends of friends can share their deepest and darkest thoughts, along with gossip, criticism and even plans to propose marriage, under a cloak of near-anonymity. Secret joins a handful of apps such as Conde, Whisper and Yik Yak that have become popular in recent months, by offering users a way to communicate while cloaking their identities. What happens when people are free to say what they want without a name and prole photo attached? Its an experiment in human nature that har kens back to the early days of the Web, when faceless masses with madeup nicknames ruled chat rooms and online message boards. In the past decade, anonymity has been fading. As Facebook soared to dominate online social networks, the trend shifted toward proles, real names and the melding of online and ofine identities. But as peoples online social circles grew from friends to parents, grandparents, inlaws, colleagues and bosses, many became increasingly reluctant to share as openly as they once did.Anonymity apps on the rise M C Y K

Wolfgram will receive a $1,000 scholarship, a special medallion, and will be recognized at Phi Theta Kappas (PTK) Annual Convention April 25 in Orlando. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team program by recognizing 50 Gold, 50 Silver, and 50 Bronze scholars, and providing nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually. Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society of two-year colleges. PTK administers the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Program and recognizes Coca-Cola Community College scholars during All-State Community College Academic Team Recognition ceremonies held in 37 states. An independent panel of judges consid ers outstanding academic rigor, grade point average, academic and leadership awards, and engagement in college and community service in the selection pro cess. Wolfgram received his Associate in Arts degree and his State of Florida High School Diploma (GED) from SFSC. He was a member of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), an Honors Program student, and graduated from SFSC with a 4.0 grade point average (GPA). After graduating from SFSC in December 2013, he transferred to the University of Florida to pursue a bachelors degree in physics. As a physics major, Dylan was highly engaged in all my classes and labs and never settled with just knowing the ma terial. He wanted to master and fully understand all the concepts, said Erik Christensen, professor and chair of the natural science department at SFSC. This is an honor well deserved. Dylan is an exemplary student who was always willing to help others in the class or the laboratory. All of us at SFSCs Honors Program are proud of Dylans achievements, said Dr. Charotte Pressler, SFSC Honors Program coordinator and philosophy instructor. He was a wonderful student, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors. We thank the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation for their vote of condence in community college students by in vesting in their futures, said Dr. Rod Risley, executive director of Phi Theta Kappa. Their support is especially welcome during this challenging econom ic climate, as more and more community college students need additional resources to help them complete their degrees.Former SFSC student named Coca-Cola Bronze Scholar Courtesy photoFormer South Florida State College student Dylan Wolfgram was recently named a 2014 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Bronze Scholar LYNN ELBERAP Television WriterLOS ANGELES Inspired by a former president, Shirley Jones cant wait to jump into her birthday plans. The Oscar-winning actress and singer says shell take her very rst skydive on Monday her 80th birthday. Thats something I wanted to do all my life, Jones said Friday. The inspiration to try comes from former President George H.W. Bushs jumps on several birthdays, including when he turned 85 in 2009. When I saw him do it I thought, Wow, if he can do this, I can, Jones said. Jones, who starred in TVs The Partridge Family in the 1970s, gained fame with the 1950s lm versions of the Broadway musicals Oklahoma! and Carousel. She won an Oscar for the 1960 drama Elmer Gantry. She will be jumping in tandem with an instructor in Perris, a popular Southern California sky diving spot, according to her husband, comedian Marty Ingels. Ingels was taken aback when she suggested it but has since come around, Jones said. Her children, not so much. She quoted her oldest son, Shaun Cassidy, as saying, Mom, whats the matter with you? Why would you want to do this at your age? Jones said she under stands her sons concerns, especially since she has arthritis, and she realizes that anything like this can be danger ous. But shes not deterred. It was either skydiving or the other top item on her to-do list, an African safari to satisfy the animal lover in her, Jones said. Family members, including 12 grandchildren, are planning a big party Sunday, Jones said. Shes also welcoming a friend shes known since they were in third grade back in a small town in Pennsylvania. Shes looking forward to the party but not whats being celebrated. Im not very happy about turning 80, she said. The number scares me to death. I dont even like to say it. Eighty years old, it cant be. Is skydiving a way to prove theres still more living to do? Yes, maybe, Jones said. And for this actress, at least, its apparently less worrisome than turning 80.Shirley Jones says she wants a high-flying 80th birthday M C Y K

It was held at the recreation hall at Highlands Hammock State Park. Ten Nu-Hope ladies from our park were present and enjoyed the luncheon and several were recipients of prizes. Recently, about 15 people from our park went on a great trip through Buck Island Ranch. The trip was planned by park resident John Reece. We were seated on an open vehicle driven by a delightful young lady who works full time at the huge ranch. She was very knowledgeable and answered every question. The ranch has 3,000 head of cattle. They raise calves to ship to OK to fatten. All pastures are Bahia grass that was sown years ago. Their irrigation is sever al shallow ditches that allows the water to seep into the land. They separate cows by pregnancy. They have a herd of 100 Cracker Cattle separated to keep the strain pure. Many scientific records are kept on the ranch, and some workers live on the ranch. At times they hire extra help (cowboys) when moving the cattle or loading them to sell. Many bulls are kept on the property. Silage and hayleige are contained in long white plastic sleeves on the ground to be used during the seasons when pasture is scarce. Besides seeing many cattle, we saw deer, hogs and turkeys.

Katheryn Deprill, 27, said Tuesday she felt pure joy when she met her biological mother for the rst time Monday at an at torneys ofce. And, after she learned the sad details of her conception and abandonment, she said she understood why her mom did what she did. She is better than any thing I couldve ever imag ined. She is so sweet and amazing. Im so happy, said Deprill, who has become known as the Burger King Baby. The woman had decided about six months ago to launch her own search for the daughter she gave up. Deprill began her quest on March 2 by posting on her Facebook page a photo in which she held up a sign that said, Looking for my birth mother. ... She abandoned me in the Burger King bathroom only hours old, Allentown PA. Please help me nd her by sharing my post. The photo was shared more than 30,000 times by Facebook users around the world, and Deprills story landed in numer ous media outlets. That caught the attention of the woman who abandoned her, and she came forward to attorney John Waldron, who arranged for them to meet. Deprill said she bears a very strong resemblance to the woman, whose name she wouldnt disclose. It looked like I was looking in a mirror, she said. Deprill, an EMT and married mother of three who lives outside Allentown in South Whitehall Township, said she embraced her mother. I got the hug that I had wanted for the last 27 years, and that broke the ice, she said. I asked if I could have it, and she said, absolutely, and just held her arms open, and the rest is history. The pair met for about four hours and exchanged contact information. Deprill said they plan to meet again. We are denitely going to have a relationship, she said.Burger King Baby finds birth mom, feels pure joy M C Y K

Pine St. and will review ve possible options for a street to be named after King: Cornell-Tulane-Verona: Option 1 would start at the intersection of U.S. 27 and Cornell Street, head east to South Lake Boulevard, turn south and follow the route through Tulane Drive, circling the south end of Lake Tulane, and following South Verona Avenue north back up to Main Street. Memorial Boulevard: Option 2 would have the city petition the Highlands County Commission to rename Memorial Drive from Main Street south for Cornell. That section is also called South Highlands Avenue. South Lake-Tulane-Hal McRae: Option 3 would start at the intersection of South Lake Boulevard and Hal McRae Boulevard and rename South Lake Boulevard south through Tulane Drive, and through East Hal McRae Boulevard/AP has 5 options for MLK street BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING When drivers see a wreck, especially a fatal one, they may think the matter is cleared up in the hour or more it takes to clear the road. Unlike what you may see on television, the real conclusion takes far longer. Its usually several months, said Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr. Three fatal wrecks from the last two years two in the last six months are still waiting on investigations. One has a computer compatibility issue while the others are waiting for investigative and legal processes. Carr said a wreck that killed husband and wife Francis Gero, 58, and Barbara Gero, 54, on Oct. 31, 2013, has been waiting on computer data. Their southbound 2001 Ford Focus was hit head-on and spun airborne by a 2003 Jaguar driven by Robert Goldstein, 61, of Sebring, when he lost control in a left turn lane on U.S. 27 at Sevigny & Associates Eye Care. Carr said no charges are led yet because the Jaguars inter nal computer holds key infor mation on the crash. It wasnt until late March that investigators found an information technology expert who could download the data. The computer had to be plugged into a working Jaguar before the data could even be downloaded, Carr said. They now have to send that data to Jaguar in Great Britain to be translated. The Highlands County Sher iffs Ofce has a computer forensics expert on its Crime Scene Unit to copy hard drives, then search for types of les, said Sgt. James Fennell, head of the unit.

However, this past weekend, the big beige truck made a trek to Tampa. It was one of more than 121 food trucks that took part in what has turned out to be the Worlds Largest Food Truck Rally held at the Florida State Fairgrounds. We had tried to do this last August but apparently we didnt have all the paperwork in order for the Guinness folks, said Sebrings Charles Butcher, who owns and oper ates the 1983 GM Workhorse Step-Van that doubles as a mobile restaurant. The parade this past weekend almost doubled the standing Guinness Book of World Records mark of 62, set last year in Miami. Butcher did not participate in that event. Reportedly, there were a total of 225 mobile food vendors that showed up at the state fairgrounds last weekend. However, only trucks that displayed photographs of food were permitted to participate in the actual record-breaking attempt. You had to have your signs and your logo on the side, and you had to have a food product that you cooked, Butcher said. They didnt take slushie vendors or any thing like that you actually had to produce food out of the truck. Following the parade, the trucks set up at the Florida State Fairgrounds and served to the crowds that came in to sample their wares. Butcher said he did a brisk business selling the gator bites for which he has become famous. Saturday we got rained out, but Sunday was a lot better, he said. Trucks reportedly came from as far away as New York to participate with others driving in from Alabama and Mississippi to be part of the record-breaking effort. Butcher became aware of the rally through his membership on the Not Your Or dinary Food Truck Facebook page. The Loan Around Cafe has returned to Highlands County now and will take up its normal spot weekdays at Lowes. I also do special events. For instance, we set up when the Friends of the Hammock have their concerts at Highlands Hammock State Park and I also set up C&S Auctions when they do their events on Tuesday and Friday nights.Local entrant takes part in food truck world recordLoan Around Cafe truck goes to Tampa for rally Courtesy photoThe Loan Around Cafe was parked beneath the big ferris wheel at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa this past weekend, getting ready to participate in a parade which set a new world record.

We hope it doesnt get lost in the never ending parade of days, weeks and months given over to worthy causes. According to safehorizon.com, in 2010 more than 1,500 children died as a result of abuse or neglect. Eighty percent of them were younger than four; 48 percent were not yet a year old. We all know child abuse is not some thing that happens somewhere else. Weve grieved for children in our own community, and, sadly, probably will again. When a local law enforcement of cer shakes his girlfriends baby to death and a pair of young parents in Sebring actually neglect their baby until he starves, you know child abuse is a constant threat everywhere. It is everybodys obligation to report abuse, said Jeff Roth, director of the Champion for Children Advocacy Center. But because determining what consti tutes physical abuse is not always a sim ple thing, it is not the publics responsibility to investigate. For example, punishment practices differ culture to culture and family to fami ly. What might be considered a necessary spanking by the parents appalls someone else. People dont want to send in reports that would be deemed discipline, Roth said. For criminal purposes there has to be an intent to harm the child. That doesnt mean we look the other way. We have to be vigilant and pay at tention to the world around us, not just our own little space of earth, Roth quick ly added. The goal is to prevent abuse in the rst place, he said. A special volunteer committee is looking at that challenge. It is developing a ve-year prevention plan, targeting four specic areas: substance misuse; inadequate supervision; family violence; and physical injury. In the course of its study, Roth said, the committee discovered an unexpected problem. While there are successful programs for at-risk families in the county, many do not take advantage of them because they dont have a car. One of the biggest challenges, said Roth, is getting help to people who need it. Transportation raised its head many times. Its the biggest obstacle to helping families. We have to face facts. If we really are committed to our children were going to have to spend money and become involved. We have a lot to think about. Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month is a perfect time.Child abuse a problem everywhereCornerstone recognizes volunteersTo the average person, having someone hold your hand, walk your dog or acknowledge your service to the nation with a salute is a nice gesture. For hospice patients, such actions can mean the difference between living life to the fullest and dying. Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care offers a variety of services to our patients including respite care, Pet Peace of Mind and our veterans program, Cornerstone SALUTES! These programs contribute to our overall mission to give dignity and comfort to people during their most difcult journey. Most of these services are provided thanks to 53 Hardee and Highlands county volunteers who are among 900 trained volunteers committed to helping patients and their families across our seven-county Central Florida ter ritory. These volunteers provided more than 45,000 hours in 2013, realizing a cost savings of $1,004,608. While a federal mandate under Medicare requires 5 percent of all hospice patient care hours to be provid ed by trained volunteers, Cornerstone Hospice is proud that our volunteer contribution exceeds 7.3 percent and we are on our way to reach our 2014 goal of 8 percent volunteer hour assistance. On behalf of the employees, facility partners and families served by Cor nerstone Hospice, we want to recognize our dedicated volunteers during the observance of National Volunteer Week (April 6-12, 2014) as well as all volunteers who make our communities great places to live. Should the chance to make a difference in someones life tug at your hospice heart, we invite you to call us at 382-4563 to learn more about volunteering at Cornerstone Hospice.CHUCK LEE, CEOCornerstone Hospice and Palliative CareFilm faithful to BibleTV host Glenn Beck and other stalwarts of the Christian right have attacked the recent blockbuster Noah as being pro-animal and unfaithful to the Bible. Well, yes and no. The lm is both pro-animal and faithful to the Bible, at least to the Book of Genesis, our only source for the story of Noah. After all, Genesis 1:29 admonishes Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree that has seed-yielding fruit to you it shall be for food. It is only after the ood, with fruits and vegetables no longer abundant, that humans get permission to eat animal esh. Even then, the Bible stipulates that lives of only select animals may be taken and always with reverence and minimal cruelty. This is certainly a far cry from todays factory farm and slaughterhouse practices. Regardless of how we may feel about Noahs interpretation of the Bible, each of us can recreate the recommended diet of the Garden of Eden in our home by dropping animal products from our menu.STEWART GILPINSebringEducation Spring the rise of public education advocates against the business-backed privatization movement is spreading across the country and has nally reached Washington. But if youre wondering why standardized testing is caus ing such a stink these days (after all didnt we manage OK with the SAT, ACT and other tests?) all you have to do is go back to where this all started in Texas. Providing cautionary tales to the rest of the country is a public service we provide here. Youre welcome. Heres the rub: No Child Left Behind, an outdated law begging for replacement, requires every eighth-grader to pass a standardized test in math. Texas also requires students taking Algebra I to pass a state standardized test, and many children take Algebra I in the eighth grade, which means many Texas eighth-graders have to pass two math tests, only one of which actually counts. The other is just to satisfy NCLB, which was based on an ear lier Texas law in the rst place. The state education agency asked the federal education agency for permission not to double-test eighth-graders. Texas is where high-stakes testing was born, so when Texas is asking for relief you know things have gotten a little out of hand. But this month Sec. Arne Duncan denied the request, which means next month hundreds of thousands of Texas 14-yearolds will learn an important lesson, but not one about math. Giving one child two tests in the same subject to satisfy a federal law that never worked and no one wants anymore is a bi-partisan failure. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama are fundamentally wrong that we can use standardized tests as a measuring stick to make our children, in effect, taller. The only thing we accomplish by double-testing eighth-graders is revealing not just that the emper or has no clothes but hes sleeping off a bender in a Dumpster. Everywhere you look Education Spring is breaking out. The anti-test rebellion that started in Texas two years ago has spread to other states. The National Conference of State Legislatures reports that 179 bills dealing with K-12 testing have been introduced. A bipar tisan bill in the Virginia Assembly backed by teachers unions and the new gover nor, would cut the number of tests from 34 to 26. New York has capped how much time schools devote to testing while Missouri reduced it. And in California, state ofcials won a standoff with Sec. Duncan over their insistence that it made no sense to collect data that compared the apples of an old test to the oranges of a new test. March was a big month for the pushback against high-stakes testing as it nally breached the walls of congress. On March 6, Reps. Chris Gibson (R-N.Y.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) introduced a bill to move from annual testing to gradespan testing, or testing once every few years. This would save millions of dollars, reduce testing abuse, and free classrooms to innovate new ways to educate children. Obviously, it has no chance of passing. Another Arizona Democrat Rep. Ral Grijalva became the rst to support the Network for Public Educations call for congressional hearings into the misuse and abuse of standardized tests. Since the federal education budget rivals what we spend on defense, it might be nice to examine what were getting for all our tax dollars. But none of that is what is grabbing the national headlines when it comes to education. That honor goes to Hillary Clinton, who attended a higher education conference with ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sec. Duncan at the George W. Bush presidential library. The public education advocates opposing test-based reforms are going to need a lot more repower to convince Hillary shes hanging out with the wrong crowd. Even so, few expected the mutiny against high-stakes testing to get this far. But if angry parents can convince Texas legislators to offer testing relief where they previously only preached the empty gospel of rigor, then anything is possible. Its been a long, cold winter, and at long last, Education Spring might be arriving.Jason Stanford is a Democratic consultant who writes columns for the Austin American-Statesman and MSNBC.

Also, deputies dont do trafc homicide investigations. They turn cases over to Florida Highway Patrol. FHP is still working on a fatal wreck from Jan. 4 in Sebring. Holly Fadely, 62, and Allen Wilson, 60, residents of Fairmount Mobile Estates, died after a speeding truck hit them and two other pedestrians on Seattle Avenue, at the edge of their park. The truck then hit a steel-reinforced concrete power pole. Driver Gregory Tocci, 54, of Sebring, died Jan. 7 at Lakeland Regional Medical Center from his injuries. The trafc homicide report is still not ready, FHP Public Information Ofcer Lt. Greg Bueno said Monday. He said the fact that Tocci died doesnt complicate the matter. FHP would still be waiting for medical results in this case, the medical examiners report along with several agency review steps. Bueno said the trafc homicide investigator has been working diligently, but has several other cases. Troopers who cover Highlands County also cover DeSoto, Hardee, Manatee and Sarasota Counties, which is only the north half of F Troops coverage area. Every investigation is different, Bueno said. We try to have time standards. Sometimes they take longer than others. One of the longest local cases is the death of Peggy Sue Roaf, 52, of Sebring on March 28, 2012. The driver at fault Nicholas Steven Fox, 33, of Fort Lauderdale was booked into Highlands County Jail on Feb. 3 this year, and is being held without bond on two counts of failing to appear for the felony offenses of vehicular homicide and driving without a valid drivers license. At approximately 6:30 p.m. March 28, 2012, Foxs GMC Envoy SUV swerved out of control while southbound on U.S. 27, crossed the median near Alan Jay Automotive Headquarters, hit a raised concrete drain, went air borne and landed on top of Roafs Ford Focus, killing her instantly. Fox wasnt charged until almost a year later on March 11, 2013. Fox was reported to be under the inuence at the time, but police had trouble getting a witness statement and Fox, who was from Broward County, took a while to nd and charge. Fox had ve passengers, two of them minors. All were treated and released at Highlands Regional Medical Center.News-Sun reporter Samantha Gholar and correspondents Barry Foster and Christopher Tufey contributed to this report.

TALLAHASSEE (AP) In spite of some Republican opposition, state legislators keep moving forward with a bill that would allow qualied Florida students to pay in-state college tuition rates even if they are in the country illegally. The latest vote came Tuesday in the Senate Judiciary Committee where a version of the bill (SB 1400) was approved by a 7-2 vote. Two GOP legislators voted no. The approval came after a contentious hearing where a Republican executive committee leader from Santa Rosa County complained the bill would hurt the campaign of Gov. Rick Scott this fall. Four years ago, Scott was in favor of tougher immigration laws, but now he favors the Senate bill. The Florida House has already passed the bill although there are some differences between the House and Senate bills.In-state tuition bill moves closer to final vote M C Y K

A year later, Sun Newspapers came into Highlands County and bought The Journal from the Delaney family. All newspapers but The Charlotte Sun, Englewood Sun, and North Port Sun are weekly editions. The News-Sun will be the companys rst tri-weekly newspaper. We think a newspaper is there for a community. We think a newspaper is to focus on the community, what it needs, what kind of forum do they have to express themselves all of these things are very important. And the advertisers need a way to reach out to their prospects, Dunn-Rankin said. Romona Washington, publisher of the NewsSun, said, We are excited about becoming part of the Sun Newspapers group. We will be joining a group of community newspapers that not only share many things in common with the NewsSun, but they are also very focused on their local communities.

SUN FROM PAGE A1 Classified ads get results! Call 314-9876 BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Personal experiences often spark an individuals interest in a subject or organization. That happens to be the case with local hairstylist Jeanne Brown and the American Cancer Societys Relay for Life. Brown, 63, was diagnosed with cancer last August. After a hysterectomy, Brown beat the disease with no further treatment or therapy. I was very fortunate, Brown said. Browns cancer survivor status and new attitude toward life made her a perfect candidate to be named the honorary chair at the annual Sebring Relay for Life walk which will be held Saturday, April 12, from 6 p.m. through 7 a.m. on Sunday at Firemens Field. The cause is something very close to Browns heart. Though she has been touched by a less common type of the disease, Brown knows that cancer knows no bounds whatsoever. (Uterine cancer) isnt talked about a lot and thats just not good. All you ever hear about is breast cancer or lung cancer, but there are some that are less common and there needs to be more awareness of all the cancers out there, Brown said. My great grandmother died from uterine cancer. My grandfather had lung cancer. I lost my mother to leukima in 1989. My husband is also a survivor. He beat prostate cancer back in 1999 and he was fortunate as well. After removing the cancer, he didnt have to have any further treatment either, Brown said. So in our family, its been a full circle, its come all the way back around. Brown is adamant about spreading more awareness and getting people more involved in Relay. People need to be checked out and to get involved. Thats why I am doing this to support those who werent as for tunate as me or my husband, to support those who are still ghting, Brown said. In Highlands County, the three Relay events in Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring contribute to a pool of over 5,000 walks each year. In 2013, the three cities Relays combined raised a total of $163,000 for the American Cancer Society. Brown, along with hundreds of other supporters and participants, will take to their events this spring with a grateful spirit and remember the purpose behind each and every step during their walks. Lake Placid will kick of Relay season in Highlands County this Friday beginning at 6 p.m. at the Lake Placid High School stadium. Avon Park nishes out the season May 2-3 at the high zchool stadium.Jeanne Brown named Sebring Relay for Life honorary chair Carlisle, Stewart and Shoop sworn in to new posts M C Y K

Scanga said that upon graduation from the foundation, as a gift, each student is given the book The Oak inside the Acorn. The book tells the tale of how a lonely little acorn turns into a mighty oak and all it goes through in between. I wont give away all the details youll have to read the book but there is a mighty oak in each one of us and all of the children. Its impor tant that we are the light for these children who feel like their lives are in darkness, Scanga said. Barbara Moss, executive director of One Hope United, gave the basic principles of the organization. Our promises are leadership; we need the right leaders to save these children from harm. Collaboration is another promise. This community has a heart for people and a heart for children. Every one works together here. The next promise is innovation. We in this county and in this state are going through a systematic change that is targeting these children and keeping up with the children in their homes to help keep them safe while not disturbing the home situations. The last promise is hope. We hope for a better future for all of the children, Moss said. The presentation included a dramatic monologue from Simple Acts Productions Shealyn MacCool and Megan Glisson, a song by local rising art ist Cammie Lester and remarks by Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin. Houchin, who has worked many abused children cases over his career, shared a story regarding fellow ASA Courtney Lenharts case regarding a young girl who was sexually abused from the age of 5 to 15. The girl, who was not identied, over came her tragic childhood to go on and graduate from high school and is currently attending college thanks to the support, guidance and watchful eye of Lenhart. True success stories are hard to come by, Houchin said. We are truly blessed that in this community we have so many resources for child abuse in this very county.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.

See A11 for the full race results.SCHULT WINS HOME RUN 4 HABITAT 5K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Another season of beginners pickleball is drawing to a close at Tanglewood. Wayne Roswell and Joann Bath taught beginners for years and then passed the torch to Mel McDonald, a former couch potato, who was ably assisted this year by Tom Stadler, Vicki Buck, Dave Werry and other experienced members of the Tanglewood Pickleball Club. On Monday, March 24, a tournament was planned with a potluck to follow. Unfortunately, the rain forced the tournament to be postponed until March 31 but the rain couldnt stop the party. More than 40 gathered to enjoy a feast featuring pulled pork and chicken wings augmented by a wide range of side dishes and desserts brought by the attendees. The meal nished up when a cake was brought out to celebrate Mel McDonalds 81st birthday. Fifteen rst-year play ers competed in the tour nament on the 31st with a few slightly more seasoned players joining in. Organizer, Tom Stadler, chair of the Tanglewood Pickleball Club kept things moving with each participant playing ve mixed doubles games with a different partner for each game. Games were to 11 points and scores from each game were totaled to determine the top players. Leading the ladies with 53 points was Val Burrows. In second place was Laura Matthews with 49 while Connie Klinepeter nished third after accumulating 45 points. The mens competition was very close with Rich Mieling coming out on top with 53 points. Tied for second were Darwin Liverance and Gordon Armitage, each with totals of 51. Pickleball is a game ideally suited to active seniors it is competitive, fast paced and social. Every one of the newbies interviewed talked of how they love their new found sport and how welcoming everyone is at the courts. Bonnie Larson-Knight was been most impressed by the sportsmanship shown by all of the play ers. Shes learned quickly with great help from the coaches and her fellow players. Gordon Armitage is adding a lot of new activities to keep him healthy in retirement. First golf, then tai chi and now pickleball. Each has allowed him to meet great new people. He had never heard of pickleball and is thrilled to be able to get his exer cise without spending so much time in the gym. Jerry Grifns doctor wanted him to ght diabetes with exercise and said that riding around a golf course in a cart didnt count. Pickleball is proving to be an enjoyable way to keep the doctor happy. His wife, Sharon, enjoys the stiff competition and the camaraderie of pickleball. When Dan Hamilton returns to Owensboro, KY, he is going to try to get pickleball courts painted on the under-used tennis courts. Diane and Dave Keller tried pickleball, liked it and keep coming back be cause of the great people. When they return home to the Canton N.Y. area, theyll be checking to see what facilities are available there. Julia Hinshaw told husband, Paul, that he needed to exercise. Friends had been asking them to give pickleball a try so they came out and Paul has already lost eight pounds. Julia likes the fact that everyone has been so receptive and accepting of them, despite their limited skills. When they get back to Finlay, Ohio, theyll be joining pickleball at the local seniors center. Each year thousands more take up the game across the continent and dozens more give pickleball a try here at Tanglewood. Get out and take a look for yourself. Tanglewood beginners meet at 3 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays and have a great time making new friends and working off the pounds.Pickleball pays off for beginners Special to the News-SunConnie Klinepeter sends a forehand back over the net during Tanglewood Pickleball competition Monday. BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Will there be a time where we can have a ve-run lead and Ill be happy? Lake Placid head coach D.W. Daum grumbled as his squad headed into the bottom of the seventh with an 8-3 lead. An 8-3 lead that would, in the end, hold up. His angst was wellfounded, of course. A little over a month ago, the Blue Streaks had thumped the Dragons by a 13-3 score, and the heart of the Sebring order was due to come to the plate. Not to mention, while Tyler Carr had pitched his team up to this point, his pitch-count had risen and Paul Cantwell was tabbed to get the nal three outs. Lake Placid had drawn rst blood, scratching for a run on a Laine Daum RBI single off of Blue Streak starter Ever ett Hurst in the top of the rst. Sebring tied it up in the bottom of the second, however, with David DeGenaro driving Seth Cannady home with a single to right. And the Streaks took the lead an inning later. Cullen Lovett started it with a single to center and stole second with one out. Jimmy Peck powered a double to deep left-center to bring Lovett in, and Pecks run came across via a Josh Crouch single to right for a 3-1 Blue Streak lead. Hurst held the Dragons in check until the fth when, with one out and a runner on rst, an error knocked things a bit off track. A hit batter loaded the bases and Alex Miller came through with a liner through the left side to make it a 3-2 game, with the bases still loaded. Carr patiently drew a walk to force home the ty ing run and pull Hurst from the game for reliever Kyle Helms. Helms, however, wasnt quite dialed in as his rst offering drilled Daum and forced home the go-ahead run. Helms then settled in, striking out the next hitter and then getting a grounder to second to end the inning. Sebring put two on in the bottom of the fth, but couldnt cash in, and Lake Placid soon opened it up. With two out in the top of the sixth, Justin Mason, Isaiah Velasquez and Miller hit consecutive singles to load the bases. Carr followed with a sharp single to left, plating two, with Daum then drawing a walk to reload the bases. Then, a shot off Justin LaRosas bat couldnt be corralled and two more runs came across to put the Dragons up to that 8-3 margin they carried into the seventh, which gave their manager little comfort. But he was soon put at Dragons take down Blue Streaks Dan Hoehne/News-SunAbove: Alex Miller puts up a cloud of dirt and chalk as he slides in with the opening run in Mondays 8-3 win at Sebring. Right: Tyler Carr was nicked early, but gained steam as the game went on, striking out 12 in six innings of work LAKE PLACID8SEBRING3SEE DRAGONS | A11 Dan Hoehne/News-SunAustin Bingham drove in two runs for the SFSC Panthers Monday night. Unfortunately, thats all the team could muster as Hillsborough extended them to 11 innings before taking a 4-2 win in Suncoast Conference play. This puts South Florida at 5-12 in conference play, though just four games out of state tournament contention with plenty of games left to play, including tonights date at Hillsborough.PANTHERS CLIPPED BY HAWKS M C Y K

Dan Hoehne/News-SunJacob Cram reaches back to snare this foul pop for the second out of the seventh inning of Lake Placids win over Sebring Monday. Dan Hoehne/News-SunDavid DeGenaro came through with a pair of hits, a walk and an RBI Monday night at Firemens Field.ease as Cantwell started off with a strikeout, then worked around a walk to Peck to retire the next two and put the clamps on the Green Dragon win. Weve been playing well and really gelling as a team lately, Daum said. Were putting the ball in play, making plays and havent been making the mental errors. Now 7-8 on the season overall, and 3-3 in district play, Lake Placid hosted Hardee Tuesday and will work to get over .500 in District 9-4A Friday with a visit from Frostproof. Sebring, meanwhile, jumps back into District 11-5A action Thursday as they travel to Lemon Bay and will host Oviedo in a non-district tilt Friday at Firemens Field. DRAGONS FROM PAGE A8 MARK LONGAssociated PressGAINESVILLE For Florida, the Final Four might as well be dubbed the Familiar Four. The top overall seed in the NCAA tournament already played the other three teams headed to Ar lington, Texas, for college basketballs most prestigious event. Floridas only losses this season came at Wisconsin (Nov. 12) and at Connecticut (Dec. 2), and the Gators (36-2) beat Kentucky three times in the same season for the rst time in program history. All that familiarity could work in Floridas favor. Then again, it might eliminate the element of sur prise in a tournament lled with short turnarounds. It denitely helps, coach Billy Donovan said Monday. It helps both teams. There will be a fa miliarity there because theyve been on the oor with those guys. ... It gives you at least a reference point of what youre dealing with there. Florida plays seventhseeded UConn in the rst seminal Saturday night. No. 2 seed Wisconsin and eighth-seeded Kentucky play in the other. The winners advance to the cham pionship game Monday night. The Gators vividly remember one thing about their last loss: All-Ameri can guard Shabazz Napiers buzzer-beater that gave the Huskies a 65-64 victory. The game was such a long time ago. It feels like it was forever, guard Scottie Wilbekin said. With Wilbekin in the locker room for the nal few minutes and getting treatment on his sprained right ankle, Florida went to a 1-3-1 zone in hopes of slowing down Napier. It didnt work. The Gators were up 62-59 with 1:18 to play, but allowed two offensive rebounds off missed 3-pointers. Napier eventually swished a 25-footer and got fouled. He completed the fourpoint play and was just getting started. After Michael Frazier II put Florida ahead 64-63 with 17 seconds left, Napier escaped a trap 30 feet from the basket and launched a wild shot that missed bad ly. With the Gators collapsing toward the basket, teammate DeAndre Daniels tipped the ball back to Napier, who swished the game-winner at the buzzer. Thats what really sticks out in my mind, but I know there were other things in the game that we didnt do very well, Frazier said. So it wasnt just that one play that helped us lose the game. There were plenty of things. But that play sticks out in my head. Florida certainly missed Wilbekins defense down the stretch against UConn. The Gators also were without backup guard Kasey Hill because of a high-ankle sprain.

News and Courier. Titled Agency Offers Pointers on How Parents Can Guide Their Childs Emotional Development, it is proof that parents and professionals of three generations ago possessed a wealth of common sense, a quality that has since become most uncommon. The subject was war the reader may remember that America was embroiled in yet another one at the timeand what parents could do to help their children cope with its realities. Keep them out of earshot when war was being discussed to prevent trauma to their fragile psyches? No. Adults should inform them of the dangers of war and the very real possibility (or so it was thought at the time) that an enemy could launch missiles at us. But wouldnt that cause a child to become fearful? Yes, but fears are not necessarily bad things. Miss Florice Langley, executive director of the Family Agency of Charleston was quoted as say ing that As long as these fears are real fears and not overly exaggerated fears they form a natural, even healthful part of a childs emotional growth. Indeed, adults were quite straightforward about such things back then. I remember, for example, crouching under my school desk dur ing air raid drills. The hypothetical bombs in question were atom bombs, which, we were told, could come raining down at any time. I dont remember any kids my age or thereabouts who were traumatized by such information. We trusted that adults knew what they were doing and would protect us as well as they could. We were also aware that as well as they could was no guar antee of safety. As Miss Langley astutely pointed out, that was a healthful thing for us to know. Kids talked about it freely, but not obsessively. We mostly planned what candy stores we would pillage if we survived. The article then quotes a prominent psychologist as saying that anxious, frustrated, tense parents can adversely affect their childrens security. In turn, the children may develop various behavior problems. Mind you, many of the sorts of problems in question are today called disorders and children, not parents, are often medicated for them. The same psychologist, a professor at Stanford University, went on to say that children should not be forbidden from play ing war games. Rather, such play should be viewed as natural outlets for emotional tensions. Its also a way, she said, of expressing a healthy rather than morbid inter est in war. Todays parents would do well to embrace the same commonsense view of their childrens imaginations. In this regard, it is interesting to note that as adult anxiety over children play ing war and cops and robbers has increased, along with prohibitions concerning such fanciful play, so has bullying. Cor relation does not prove cause, but this particular juxtaposition should make adults think twice about banning index-nger pistols and that sort of harmless stuff from their homes (and schools). The article concludes with the ever-sensible Miss Langley saying that parent anxiety over the dangers of war is the greatest danger to the emotional health of their children. Finally, she advises anxious mothers to be involved in a wider range of social and avocational activities. Amen to that for all mothers, anxious or not!John Rosemond has worked with families, children, and parents since 1971 in the eld of family psychology.

However, I often nd my self drawn to other guys who I know are nothing but trouble. It never goes further than simple irting, but I still feel guilty for doing it when Im in a relationship. How do I keep myself from temptation? HARD TO RESISTDEAR HARD TO RESIST: Temptation to do what? To involve yourself with a man who is nothing but trouble? A way to discourage that would be to ask yourself how you would feel if you lost your boyfriend. That would be a high price to pay for acting immaturely. However, if youre asking how to overcome the IMPULSE, my advice is to have an honest conversation with yourself about why you feel the need. Most of the women (and men) who act this way are constantly trying to prove to themselves that they are attractive. If this could be you, then start working on your self-esteem, because if you dont, I predict youll ruin a good relationship. DEAR ABBY: Im in my 50s and overweight. I work hard, eat three meals a day and am more or less healthy except for sore feet after work. Im aware of the medical warnings. Who isnt? But I have decided to accept myself as I am, relax and be happy. For years I have been hard on myself for not being slim. This is me in my 50s. I dont expect my self to be slim like I was in my 20s. Now I can smile, breathe easier, have a good time, and nally buy the new clothes I have put off buying until I was thinner. My new spirit is weightless and my new attitude has made my life more meaningful. Any thoughts? LIVING FREE AT LASTDEAR LIVING FREE: Only this, that we all have choices to make about our health, what is important to us and how we want to live our lives. You have made yours, and at this point it appears to have been the right one for you. May it ever be thus. DEAR ABBY: My husband has a paralyzing fear of driving over bridges. It interferes with our life together. He is otherwise healthy, but will not see a therapist for this problem. We have been married for 27 years. I am 63 and he is 67. I am very sad that our life is so limited. Any advice? LANDLOCKED IN VIRGINIADEAR LANDLOCKED: It would be interesting to know how your husband developed this phobia. But because he refuses to do anything about it and you feel restricted, consider traveling with another companion.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 2, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 I never really thought of how serious cancer could be until it showed its ugly face in our house two weeks ago. We found out that Lauren has HER2positive breast cancer and we have begun the path of recovery. We were blessed to know that the type she has, the doctors have a great medicine that was designed to treat HER2positive. We have been given so much information about the treatments that she will receive and I thought to myself How can I best help her? The answer for me is through food. I have been reading about cancer-ghting foods and I am amazed at what food can do to prevent cancer cell growth. One of the best things to eat is salmon. Its one of the few foods containing a signicant amount of vitamin D the sunshine vitamin. Increased intakes of Vitamin D can help prevent the growth of cancer cells by 24 percent. Salmon also is a great source of supercharged omega-3 fat that may kill off cancer cells and help stop the spread of the disease to other parts of the body. Another good food to eat is blueberries because they contain pterostilbene, a phytonutrient that can halt the growth of breast cancer tumors by causing the cancer ous cells to self-distrust. Fresh, frozen, farm-raised or wild, they are antioxidant packed. Pomegranate seeds are very rich with ellagic acid, a potent antioxidant that may help stop an enzyme that plays a part in breast cancer development. Because of what I have found out about cancerghting foods, this week I am giving you a salmon recipe. I think this food is best for you. So if you know someone who has breast cancer, make them some food that helps them on the pathway of recovery. I know that the dishes that I make for Lauren have a lot more thought put into them and even more love. Cheers, Chef.BBQ SALMON 6 4-ounce wild salmon loins, frozen 1/2 cup canned 100 percent pineapple juice 3-7/8 tbs. fresh lemon juice 3-7/8 tbs. dark brown sugar 1-1/2 tsp. light chili powder 1-1/8 tbs. fresh, grated lemon peel 1-1/2 tsp. ground cumin 3/4 tsp. kosher salt 3/8 tsp. ground cinnamon 1.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, April 2, 2014 www.newssun.com It seems like the more you do to feed your family properly, the harder it is to keep the grocery budget in check. Using the crock cooker is a great way to stretch a dollar for several reasons. You can use tougher, less expensive cuts of meat Traditional crock cooker meals like chili and soup tend to go a long way The convenience of this appliance saves you from spending money on take out Crock cookers use less electricity than stoves Today, Im going to share some tips with you to help you save even more money with this beloved kitchen appliance. Make your own stock. If you know me at all, you know Im pretty big on making stock. With a slow cooker, you shouldnt ever have to buy canned or boxed broth again. Simply save up bones (I keep one zipper bag for chicken bones and one for beef), trimmings and juices from your roasts and freeze them until you have enough to ll your crock pot about half full. When you have enough, put them in the crock pot, ll the crock 3/4 full with water and let it cook on low for eight hours or so. Then, you can use this homemade broth in your crock cooker recipes and for other uses. Cook more than you need. Buy a very large, inexpensive chuck roast. Even if its much more than your family needs as long as it will t in your crock pot, bring it home with you. Put it in the crock pot, ll the crock cooker half way with water (which I would do only for cheap cuts of meat), and let it cook on low for eight hours. Portion the meat and use it throughout the week in lunches and dinners. You can even freeze some of the meat to take out later in the month. Buy from the Clean 15 list. Even if you make an effort to buy or ganic whenever possible, you can save a little bit of money on your grocery bill. Use crock cooker recipes that call for ingredients from the Clean 15 instead of the Dirty Dozen list so you can buy the less expensive, conventionally grown option over organic. (You can learn more about the Clean 15 at ewg.org by the way.) Many Clean 15 items are great for slow cooking, including onions, sweet potatoes and cabbage.Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of Body Clutter and the Saving Dinner series.

WHEELCHAIR FLORIDA PAGEANT Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Randy (R.W.) Burnley, Reverse Mortgage specialist was the speaker at the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Clubs luncheon on March 27. He gave an informative talk about reverse mortgages. There is certain criteria that has to be met in or der to qualify for a reverse mortgage. First, one must be at least 62 or older. Second, one must own and occupy the home as the principal residence. Reverse mortgages are federally insured mortgage loans. There are large differ ences between reverse mortgages and a regular mortgage. The key factors are that with a traditional mortgage one must have sufcient income and debt ratio to qualify, and one is required to make monthly mortgage pay ments. The reverse mortgage is different in that it pays the homeowners. The homeowners doesnt make payments, because the reverse mortgage is not due as long as the home is the primary residence. There are numerous ways to receive the funds from a reverse mortgage such as monthly as income, lump sum, a line of credit or a combination of any of these methods. The proceeds from a reverse mortgage are loan advances and are not taxable. There are no restrictions on what one can do with the money. There are some costs involved and they are similar to those of a traditional mortgage. Like all homeownership, the homeowner is required to pay property taxes, provide insurance and maintain the home. The amount of money that one can receive depends upon several factors: your age, the value of your home, current inter est rates and the plan you choose. Burnley can help answer all of your questions with no cost or obligation.

During the business meeting, the club approved a $500 contribution each to Camp Wekiva and SEEK (Save Earth Environment through Knowledge). Semper gave a program of Dragonies. Most have memories of catching and playing with dragonies, often referred to as mosquito hawks. These are benecial insects, feeding on small insects like ies, bees, wasps, mosquitoes and rarely butteries. Theyre usually found near wetlands and also blacktop surfaces. They lay eggs in marshes, streams or ponds because their larvae, known as nymphs, are aquatic. Dragonies ancient lineage dates back to 300 million years. There are six families of dragonies found in Florida. Some species migrate long distances each year, seeking warm fresh water ponds to safely lay their eggs that hatch into lar vae called naiads. Naiads may spend weeks to years in the water until theyre ready to spread wings in search of food. Naiads also are predators feeding on mosquito larvae and small inver tebrates such as sh and frogs. Semper reminded every one that Central Florida is entering its mosquito season. To prevent hatchings, keep outside containers dry. Mary Roberts was awarded the orchid plant again this month. The next meeting will be April 10.TOPS 632LAKE PLACID Leader Judy OBoyle shared a quote that Susan Caldwell had brought in: Every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness. After a short discussion on that subject OBoyle had all members pledge allegiance to the ag and recited their TOPS and KOPS pledges. Vi Christian gave a program on the merits of grapeseed oil. It is good for cholesterol, good and bad, putting it around ones eyes, and has Vitamin E. Karen Goodwin took roll call with 33 members and one guest. There was another net loss as all members are trying diligently to lose those unwanted pounds. LaRue Willbur was the best loser this week. Penny Herward, LaRues daughter, was presented with her charm for losing four weeks in a row, and Theresa Rhodes received her KOPS pin. The No No for this week is pie and the Yess are strawberries and asparagus. Winners on the alphabet contest were: LaRue Willbur, Anna Harrington, Mary Jo Finn and Elaine Orr.

Phyllis Summers, president of the Womans Club of Sebring, has been sewing for well over 60 years and she wanted to make items that would let seniors in a nursing home feel that the community had not for gotten them and that they were loved. The Kenilworth Care & Rehabilitation Center was chosen to receive specially designed items for their residents, such as: homestyle bibs, RX bags, lap quilts, etc. On March 17, a delivery was made to the center by Summers and Johnell West. The lap robes were gratefully accepted by Louis Rodrigues, Quality of Life program director, and Barbara Stapleford, Resident Council president. Members of the Womans Club of Sebring meet once a month to complete these items. Currently there are a number of projects in the works with various members working with needles, thread, scissors, and material to complete these special projects. This is such a worthwhile project that Summers hopes the project will remain ongoing when the new president takes ofce.SNAPSHOTS LOCAL CLUBS Courtesy photoTOPS FL 632 has a new queen.

Among the latest is Secret, created by two for mer Google engineers who were looking for a way to let people deliver genuine feedback to co-workers. With the app, friends and friends of friends can share their deepest and darkest thoughts, along with gossip, criticism and even plans to propose marriage, under a cloak of near-anonymity. Secret joins a handful of apps such as Conde, Whisper and Yik Yak that have become popular in recent months, by offering users a way to communicate while cloaking their identities. What happens when people are free to say what they want without a name and prole photo attached? Its an experiment in human nature that har kens back to the early days of the Web, when faceless masses with madeup nicknames ruled chat rooms and online message boards. In the past decade, anonymity has been fading. As Facebook soared to dominate online social networks, the trend shifted toward proles, real names and the melding of online and ofine identities. But as peoples online social circles grew from friends to parents, grandparents, inlaws, colleagues and bosses, many became increasingly reluctant to share as openly as they once did.Anonymity apps on the rise M C Y K

Wolfgram will receive a $1,000 scholarship, a special medallion, and will be recognized at Phi Theta Kappas (PTK) Annual Convention April 25 in Orlando. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation sponsors the Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team program by recognizing 50 Gold, 50 Silver, and 50 Bronze scholars, and providing nearly $200,000 in scholarships annually.

After graduating from SFSC in December 2013, he transferred to the University of Florida to pursue a bachelors degree in physics. As a physics major, Dylan was highly engaged in all my classes and labs and never settled with just knowing the material. He wanted to master and fully understand all the concepts, said Erik Christensen, professor and chair of the natural science department at SFSC. This is an honor well deserved. Dylan is an exemplary student who was always willing to help others in the class or the laboratory. All of us at SFSCs Honors Program are proud of Dylans achievements, said Dr. Charotte Pressler, SFSC Honors Program coordinator and philosophy instructor. He was a wonderful student, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors. We thank the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation for their vote of condence in community college students by investing in their futures, said Dr. Rod Risley, executive director of Phi Theta Kappa. Their support is especially welcome during this challenging econom ic climate, as more and more community college students need additional resources to help them complete their degrees.Former SFSC student named Coca-Cola Bronze Scholar Courtesy photoFormer South Florida State College student Dylan Wolfgram was recently named a 2014 Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team Bronze Scholar LYNN ELBERAP Television WriterLOS ANGELES Inspired by a former president, Shirley Jones cant wait to jump into her birthday plans. The Oscar-winning actress and singer says shell take her very rst skydive on Monday her 80th birthday. Thats something I wanted to do all my life, Jones said Friday. The inspiration to try comes from former President George H.W. Bushs jumps on several birthdays, including when he turned 85 in 2009. When I saw him do it I thought, Wow, if he can do this, I can, Jones said. Jones, who starred in TVs The Partridge Family in the 1970s, gained fame with the 1950s lm versions of the Broadway musicals Oklahoma! and Carousel. She won an Oscar for the 1960 drama Elmer Gantry. She will be jumping in tandem with an instructor in Perris, a popular Southern California sky diving spot, according to her husband, comedian Marty Ingels. Ingels was taken aback when she suggested it but has since come around, Jones said. Her children, not so much. She quoted her oldest son, Shaun Cassidy, as saying, Mom, whats the matter with you? Why would you want to do this at your age? Jones said she under stands her sons concerns, especially since she has arthritis, and she realizes that anything like this can be danger ous. But shes not deterred. It was either skydiving or the other top item on her to-do list, an African safari to satisfy the animal lover in her, Jones said. Family members, including 12 grandchildren, are planning a big party Sunday, Jones said. Shes also welcoming a friend shes known since they were in third grade back in a small town in Pennsylvania. Shes looking forward to the party but not whats being celebrated. Im not very happy about turning 80, she said. The number scares me to death. I dont even like to say it. Eighty years old, it cant be. Is skydiving a way to prove theres still more living to do? Yes, maybe, Jones said. And for this actress, at least, its apparently less worrisome than turning 80.Shirley Jones says she wants a high-flying 80th birthday M C Y K

Recently, about 15 people from our park went on a great trip through Buck Island Ranch. The trip was planned by park resident John Reece. We were seated on an open vehicle driven by a delightful young lady who works full time at the huge ranch. She was very knowledgeable and answered every question. The ranch has 3,000 head of cattle. They raise calves to ship to OK to fatten. All pastures are Bahia grass that was sown years ago. Their irrigation is sever al shallow ditches that allows the water to seep into the land. They separate cows by pregnancy. They have a herd of 100 Cracker Cattle separated to keep the strain pure. Many scientific records are kept on the ranch, and some workers live on the ranch. At times they hire extra help (cowboys) when moving the cattle or loading them to sell. Many bulls are kept on the property. Silage and hayleige are contained in long white plastic sleeves on the ground to be used during the seasons when pasture is scarce. Besides seeing many cattle, we saw deer, hogs and turkeys.

Katheryn Deprill, 27, said Tuesday she felt pure joy when she met her biological mother for the rst time Monday at an at torneys ofce. And, after she learned the sad details of her conception and abandonment, she said she understood why her mom did what she did. She is better than any thing I couldve ever imag ined. She is so sweet and amazing. Im so happy, said Deprill, who has become known as the Burger King Baby. The woman had decided about six months ago to launch her own search for the daughter she gave up. Deprill began her quest on March 2 by posting on her Facebook page a photo in which she held up a sign that said, Looking for my birth mother. ... She abandoned me in the Burger King bathroom only hours old, Allentown PA. Please help me nd her by sharing my post. The photo was shared more than 30,000 times by Facebook users around the world, and Deprills story landed in numer ous media outlets. That caught the attention of the woman who abandoned her, and she came forward to attorney John Waldron, who arranged for them to meet. Deprill said she bears a very strong resemblance to the woman, whose name she wouldnt disclose. It looked like I was looking in a mirror, she said. Deprill, an EMT and married mother of three who lives outside Allentown in South Whitehall Township, said she embraced her mother. I got the hug that I had wanted for the last 27 years, and that broke the ice, she said. I asked if I could have it, and she said, absolutely, and just held her arms open, and the rest is history. The pair met for about four hours and exchanged contact information. Deprill said they plan to meet again. We are denitely going to have a relationship, she said.Burger King Baby finds birth mom, feels pure joy M C Y K
