He had completed one. I had set up an-other one on the easel. He started it and that was it, said Leavitt.

The City of Charm reportedly has plans to ship their refuse to Okeechobee, where they could get a better rate on tipping fees. Avon Park is responsible for about 6.5 percent of the coun-tys landll volume each year. Commissioner Don Elwell told the board it was his under-standing that Avon Park might be entertaining the opportu-nity to possibly set up a trans-fer station inside the city limits so they also could accept Hard-ee Countys trash and that then would be taken to Okeechobee County.

Price, a two-time division win-ner in Heartland Idol, took home the grand prize Saturday in the Frostproof Rotary Clubs seventh annual talent show, besting a dozen other nalists. Price captured the judges and audience with her performance of All of Me by John Legend. I practice every single day, she said. Price was a nalist in the Frost-proof show last year, an experi-ence she felt may have helped her this past weekend. I knew what to expect, and I knew how many people would be in the show, and I was a little less nervous, she said. Performing in a show like this is very fun for me; I love doing it. I get to show my emotions through my singing. She is no stranger to area stag-es, whether or not its singing or acting. Ever since I was 7, Ive been doing theater at Highlands Lit-tle Theatre, and I really started singing and dancing. All three of those things together is what I love doing, she added. She took her rst Heartland Idol division crown when she was 10, and last year, won the Teen divi-sion. She said she may save some of her winnings this time, and use some to help pay for a possible trip to Hawaii this summer. Highlands County was well rep-resented at the nals. Sebrings Joshua Camino won the grades 4-5 division, while James Asumbrado of Avon Park won the senior group. Selmer Callbellez Tepe of Avon Park won the adult division, and Mo-ria Finney of Avon Park won the grades 6-8 grouping. They all won smaller cash prizes.Nala Price wins Frostproof talent show Photo courtesy of K.M.

A short video demonstrating what situations should be reported to 911 as well as how to speak to dispatchers was shown to the students. We wanted to do a little bit of an outreach with the kids. We dont have a problem with kids calling 911 in the county. Theyre actually some of the best and most helpful callers we get, but we want to give them the information and sort of take some of the fear away from doing it (dialing 911) when they need to, said Cordero.KLC STUDENTS MEET THE FA CES BEHIND 911 CALLS

The wreck took place at approximately 12:15 p.m. Tracy Whalen, 52, of Lake-land was handling calls for Medtronic, his employer, and was waiting in south-bound U-turn lane to turn north on U.S. 27 in front of the News-Sun building at 2227 U.S. 27 South. There were a couple of cars ahead of me, Whalen said. I was stopped wait-ing to turn around. Just then, a northbound silver Chevrolet Impa-la swerved left, jumped the curb and plowed un-der his white Ford F150 Crew-cab pickup, shear-ing off the running board and lifting the truck by its frame, dangling the two drivers side wheels. Whalen got out and comforted the driver of the car Sally Hart, 76, of Sebring while sheriffs deputies, Sebring police, Sebring Fire Department and Emergency Medi-cal Services personnel ar-rived. She said her abdomen was hurting, Whalen said. She was very shook up. A squad of nurses crossed the southbound lanes with a wheelchair for Hart while Sebring Po-lice Ofcer Paul Deshazo investigated the scene. Deshazo conrmed that the Impala seemed to have leapt the curb from the northbound lanes and dove under the trucks left side. He couldnt say why Harts car had done that. She was transported from the scene by EMS for pos-sible injuries, and De-shazo said he had to com-plete his investigation before he could issue a ci-tation, if at all. The turn lane and inside lanes on both sides of the highway were open again within 45 minutes.Car plows under pickup in turn lane Phil Attinger/News-SunDeputies and police guide trafc Monday around the southbound U-turn lane on U.S. 27 in front of the NewsSun building. A northbound Chevrolet Impala made a left turn over the median and plowed under a Ford F150 that was waiting to turn north. No one was seriously injured, although 76-year-old Sally Hart of Sebring, who was driving the sedan, was taken to a local hospital to check for possible injuries. Police have not nished their investigation. BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING After bet-ter than eight years serv-ing up dinners at their Fairmount Plaza loca-tion, Yiannis is no more. On their Facebook page, the owners and staff announced the closing with heavy hearts, saying that the news came as unex-pectedly as we deliver it to you. The post said appar-ently the Fairmount Pla-za recently was pur-chased and the new owners had chosen not to renew the lease for the popular restaurant and that the process was accelerated and the nal word came with no time to share it with the people who made us the best steakhouse in High-lands County. Yianni Emanoilid-is, the owner and op-erator of the business, has been running res-taurants in Highlands County for three de-cades. He owned and operated the Olympic Restaurant in Avon Park prior to opening his up-scale dining facility in Sebring. He said there were about 30 employees that had been working for the establishment when it shut down. When asked about whether or not he would open his restaurant in another location, Eman-oilidis said his plans for the future were not clear at this point. The Fairmount Plaza reportedly has been pur-chased by the New Yorkbased Hutman. Re/Max Realty Plus has been retained to manage the facility and handle the leasing. Bro-ker/Owner Chip Boring said his rm has been in search of a new restau-ranteur to open in the Fairmount location and already has a number of prospects for the busi-ness opportunity.Yiannis closes after 8 years Katara Simmons/News-SunDue to circumstances beyond our control Yiannis Prime Choice has been forced to close our doors, a sign posted on the front door of the local restaurant in Sebring says.

BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING It only took 10 minutes to get the re under control Sunday night and save most of the house, but the home-owner still wanted to stay somewhere else for the night. Scott Mann, chief of West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department, said the owner of 1224 Woodbury Ave. in Sebring opted to stay with family over-night. We saved a good por-tion of the house, Mann said. The re call came in at 9:03 p.m., Mann said. The rst re crews on the scene reported that it was a fully involved ga-rage re, but all of the residents were out of the house. Ten West Sebring re-ghters with two engines, a brush truck and a tank-er were able to get the re under control in 10 minutes, with mutual aid from six DeSoto City vol-unteer reghters, who brought a re engine and a tanker.

He had hospice help there for him taking care of him up until he passed, Leavitt said. Leavitt rediscovered the master artist and decades worth of his incredible work just over a year ago and befriended Roberts, who had no family left. Af-ter Leavitt introduced Rob-erts work to the public again, one of his paintings sold for an HCA record $10,000. Roberts work was so in-uential local writer and News-Sun Correspondent Jan Merop wrote a book, I Never Paint Alone, that showcases the artists work over the decades. I Never Paint Alone was debuted for purchase to the public in mid-De-cember 2013 and remains on sale through the HCA. Twenty copies of signed books were available to the public. I will always remember his sense of humor and his humility. For such a man of talent and stature, he was so warm and friendly. His tenacity was remarkable. He fought through great pain to continue painting, Leavitt said of Roberts. Leavitt and the HCA will continue searching for the perfect location to open a cultural center that will permanently showcase Roberts art. Leavitt said that the concept of the coming museum/cultur-al center will remain the same as before: to create an educational and learn-ing center that will be an-chored by Roberts work. Services for Roberts will be held at the Highlands Community Church at 3005 New Life Way in Se-bring on Friday, April 25, at 6 p.m. A celebration of Roberts life will be held Wednesday, April 23 at Lu-cid Heart Gallery in down-town Sebring at 6 p.m. The Celebration of Life will be open to the public.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 16, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A5 NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Y OUR VIEWS Combining their income inequali-ty obsession with business bashing, some liberals are blaming supposed corporate greed for the nancial challeng-es of the poor. Such theories are only plau-sible in the abstract. Under scrutiny, they fall apart. A recent video produced by Slate, a lib-eral website, argues that Walmart could raise wages and ultimately save taxpayer money because fewer of its workers would qualify for food stamps. Currently, Slate says, cashiers are paid an average wage of $8.81 per hour. To raise that sum to $13.63, Slate argues, Walmart could raise prices 1.4 percent. A 68-cent box of macaroni and cheese would instead cost 69 cents. Slate claims this would keep many Walmart em-ployees off food stamps. This sounds like a win-win. But Rob-ert VerBruggen, editor of RealClearPolicy, notes the plan has some major aws. For one thing, it requires some poor people to pay more for goods so other equally poor people can get a raise. This isnt Robin Hood robbing the rich to give to the poor. Its robbing the poor to give to the poor. Research from the University of Cali-fornia at Berkeley has concluded that if Walmart raised prices to fund a higher minimum wage, 28.1 percent of the price increase would be borne by consumers in families with incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Many oth-er Walmart customers facing higher pric-es are thoroughly middle-income families who arent exactly rolling in dough. Even if that doesnt bother you, the plan has other problems. For one thing, about half of that cashiers raise would be imme-diately lost thanks to the perverse incen-tives of welfare. Jeffrey Dorman, a Forbes contributor, has noted that those on welfare could face a huge effective tax rate if their minimum wage was increased to $10.10 per hour. Dorman wrote that a hypothetical single mom with one kid would see more than half of the proposed minimum wage in-crease offset by a reduction in benets from the federal government and increased tax-es. The hypothetical mother would face a reduction in her federal Earned Income Tax Credit and in food stamp support. She would now have to pay employment taxes on her increased earnings. Essentially, these workers face the equivalent of a 50 percent or higher tax rate, Dorman wrote. Critics have long noted such features are one reason why welfare programs can discourage work and upward mobility. The Slate plan also ignores the harsh re-alities of market competition. Walmart and other large retailers operate in a lowmargin environment. A 1.4 percent price increase might not sound like a lot, but it could easily lead customers to make pur-chases at places that arent (yet) targets of a liberal witch hunt. That in turn could lead to layoffs at Walmart. In the abstract realm of liberal econom-ics, businesses can simply raise prices at will and everyone benets; no one gets seriously hurt. But reality remains stub-bornly resistant to liberal nostrums. Those pushing a minimum wage hike in Oklaho-ma City should keep this lesson in mind.An editorial from The Oklahoman.Price hikes hurt the poor and middle classLoss of young man leads to help for manyThe Polatty family would like to thank the members of the community of Sebring for their prayers, love and support in dealing with the death of Jimmy. Even though it is hard to fath-om that a 23-year-old can die of nat-ural causes with a heart attack, your kind words, cards, meals and dona-tions have helped us get through this difcult time. Thank you to all of Jimmys friends, teachers, scout leaders, church mem-bers and coaches who showed him a lot of love. A special thank you to the members of First United Method-ist Church, Sebring High School, the city of Sebring, Phi Kappa Tau Broth-ers, the University of Florida and Boy Scouts of America for helping us me-morialize Jimmy and getting through this trying time. As an organ donor, Jimmy helped several children and adults but with your donations, the Boy Scouts of America, The Place of Hope and The Methodist Childrens Home received nancial help. A scholarship for a Sebring High School student in Jimmys name was also established that we hope to con-tinue. This May, the University of Flor-ida will grant a posthumous degree in biology in Jimmys honor. As a preschooler, Jimmy was told not to go out by the pool without someone watching him to save him in case he fell in the water. He said, I dont need anyone to watch me ...

In March my son and I visited Lake Placid to attend to the affairs of my late sisters estate. Through the ex-traordinary efforts of Michael Rider, P.A. and the efforts of the ofcers and staff at the Wauchula State Bank, we were able to expedite several key -nancial components of my sisters es-tate. I want to give a particularly heartfelt thanks to the efforts of JoAnn Chan-dler, Julie Whitmire and Sue England, who not only put in extra time beyond normal business hours, but made us feel like part of the Lake Placid fam-ily. Although my isister did not have an account with Wauchula, they treat-ed us like family and showed a spirit of hospitality that seems to be lost in much of America today. Again, JoAnn, Julie and Sue, thank you for your extraordiary service and kindness in our time of need.FLOREN C E M RI C H A RDMedford, Mass.Yogi Bar a nice place to visitI would like to say one of the nic-est places of socialization, entertain-ment, and recreation I have found since I moved here in 1995 is Yogi Bar. Bill and Dee Mavipy, the owners, are some of the nicest Christian people I have ever met. Yogi Bar has a mixed crowd of all walks of life. They accept and we all accept each other as we are and who we are. They are friendly and we have Latinos. We have friendly rednecks and laid back Florida crackers. We have blacks and Canadians. As Ive said, anyone and everyone is wel-come. We all get along with each oth-er. I especially like karaoke night and like to drink, dance and sing my Elton John songs. We have a birthday par-ty of the month with karaoke and Dee puts on good food or a pizza spread. I am inviting all of my old and new friends to please join me for that night, which will be April 19 starting at 8:30 p.m. Let us celebrate life to-gether and let us not forget this is a very special night. This is an Easter vigil and Jesus said I am the resurrec-tion and the life. I want to wish everyone a Happy Birthday month and most of all a very Happy Easter. Domenica Pasqua.

Where did my lit-tle boy go? That little boy who wore bib overalls, annel shirts and cowboy boots. That lit-tle boy who loved to play outside but rarely seemed to get dirty. That little boy who always had a beauti-ful smile and gorgeous eyes. That little boy who loved to play baseball, football, skateboard, whatever. Where did he go? Standing in front of me now is a 17-year-old boy try-ing so hard to nd his own way in life. Hes traded in his overalls, annel shirts and cowboy boots for shorts, a t-shirt and tennis shoes. Staying clean has gone by the way-side since he likes to spend time under his truck looking at how it all works. Getting out and playing ball or rid-ing the skateboard has been overtaken by video games and driving his truck. The one thing that has remained the same is the beautiful smile and those gorgeous eyes. Yes, Daniel is growing up. The bumps have sometimes been a challenge. Not only for myself, but also for him. I work hard to gure out how to handle his teenage temperament, and he works hard at guring out how to deal with the fact that hes not quite an adult. Life can be fun, and the conversa-tions interesting, around our house. We both agree that we may not always like each other, but the love and bond that we share is uncondi-tional. And though he and his sister may not always agree or see things the way I see them, they also have an incredible love for each other. They argue a lot, and there are times that I just want to get away from both of them, but I admit they are closer in many ways than I was to either of my siblings at this age. Theyll grumble a lot, but either would do anything for the other. As I looked at Daniel standing there in his cap and gown, I started to re-member so much of what has transpired in the past 12 years. Then this boy who now stands more than a head taller than me walked over, wrapped his arms around my neck, hugged me and whispered, Mom, thank you for always being by my side. The rst tears of what Im sure will be many then be-gan to ow. They were tears of joy for him as he starts to prepare for his journey to adulthood, and tears of sorrow for me. My baby is growing up. It doesnt matter that he has been 17 for nearly a year already. Daniel has still been my baby boy. Now, though, I am forced to admit to my-self that he is nearly an adult. Ready to spread his wings and continue to ex-plore his independence. The really hard part is on me. Letting him go.Romona Washington is publish-er and executive editor of the News-Sun.

A6 | NEWS-SUN | W ednesday, April 16, 2014 www.newssun.com Management Jeff Sabin conrmed that the com-pany has been in prelim-inary negotiations with Avon Park for such an ar-rangement. However, ofcials in Hardee County said it does not appear that such a deal will happen. Our public works di-rector received a call from the Avon Park city manager and we told him wed take a look and analyze it, said Hard-ee County Administra-tor Lex Albritton Jr. But I dont see where it is going to be favorable. I dont see where it will reduce our costs. Albritton said Hardee County has its own land-ll and recently awarded a contract to enlarge it. The tipping fee alone sounded pretty good, but we still have to operate a landll whether or not we ship ours out. We have long-term closure and re-cycling we have to main-tain, so it really isnt any cheaper for us to do that at the rate theyre talking about, he said. Despite reports that Lake Placid could be taking their trash to Okeechobee, Lake Placid Town Manager Phil Wil-liams said it appeared that the Caladium Capital of the World would con-tinue to take the bulk of their refuse to the High-lands County location. The county has helped us out with a lot of things in different areas, and we have been a team play-er with them for many years, Williams said. Williams said the deci-sion came in the wake of a meeting hed had with Commissioner Jack Rich-ie and Administrator June Fisher. He did allow with a dif-ference of $25 per ton in Okeechobee compared to $40 a ton in High-lands, that at least some of the garbage might be shipped to Okeechobee noting a $231 per load savings. We may take a portion over there, but for the most part we are going to stay with Highlands County, he said. He said that Okeechobee had shopped the transfer sta-tion idea in Highlands County several years ago. We really didnt have a place for a transfer sta-tion, Williams said. In giving Avon Park the green light, commission-ers said they could not fault the city for wanting to save money. They also called on Fisher to con-duct a rate study. Its somewhat disap-pointing that the munic-ipalities would consid-er going elsewhere but I understand they have to look after their pocket-books, Commissioner Ron Handley said. Commission Chairman Greg Harris asked if the county should even be in the landll business in the rst place, suggest-ing that the county might lease out or want to sell the facility. Fisher did not indicate when a landll rate study might take place. UNIVERSALCENTERNATURALMARTIALARTSOF5 Days a week Adult & Children Classes!

Now only more serious inci-dents go to the FHP. We try to not work ac-cidents with serious inju-ries and give those to the Highway Patrol, Schrad-er said. Thats really their primary mission. He allowed that HCSO deputies had the abilities to work such incidents. However, that also could keep an ofcer from re-sponding to other kinds of calls until the accident scene has been cleared. The severity of accidents handled by deputies, in some cases, boils down to a matter of time. It really comers down to Is there a trooper avail-able within a reasonable driving distance? he said. While that has meant some additional training for some of the longertermed members of the force, Schrader said that newer deputies have been given that kind of instruc-tion as part of their atten-dance at law enforcement academies. Every one of them re-ceives basic trafc crash investigation so they come out of there with that knowledge, he said. Due to budget con-straints over the past sev-eral years, there has not been a designated traf-c enforcement unit in the department. However, with the HCSO takeover of police duties in the city of Avon Park, the Sheriffs Ofce has started training deputies as trafc homi-cide investigators. The underlying rea-son is that the Florida Highway Patrol does not work within a citys juris-diction. So when we took over primary law enforce-ment in the city of Avon Park that became our re-sponsibility, he said. There are three ofcers who now have attended two classes for trafc ho-micide investigation and reportedly are nishing up a third. The ofce also has one deputy who got his trafc homicide train-ing with another depart-ment and since has been employed by the HCSO. Those investigators also need special equipment. The city of Avon Park has agreed to pick up half that cost, which Schrader said was about $8,000. Schrader dispelled a rumor that the HCSO is writing more tickets than before as a way to make money. We dont get any more money, and, in fact, our deputies actually write more warnings than they do tickets, he said. The reason we write citations is for people running red lights, speeding, right-ofway violations and even seat belt violations is to hopefully save lives. Some of the trafc en-forcement questions were raised by citizens who had been stopped on U.S. 27 in an area north of Avon Park. During the widening project there, the lim-it had been set at 4045 mph. After the proj-ect had been closed, there were no workers, no equipment and no in-crease in the limit. Several of the motorists stopped in that area said it was a speed trap, but Schrader said it was not. Between Feb. 1 and March 16 we wrote a to-tal of 37 citations. They ranged in speed from 6078 miles per hour through there, he said. A majority of the Sher-iffs Ofce cruisers have speed measuring devic-es either radar or laser units. When they are not on other calls, or proac-tive patrols, the ofcers are encouraged to work trafc. We have a deputy that works that area and he continued to work the area, Schrader said. Since that time, the speed limit has been raised in response to a trafc study by the Flori-da Department of Trans-portation.

Gavarette said it works very closely with the National Association of Counties in pushing changes in federal legisla-tion that will have a direct effect on local operations. Our number one prior-ity is getting a new trans-portation bill passed, he said. We want to get as much relief as we can for our local roads. Although it is an issue being dealt with by Con-gress in Washington, D.C, Gavarette said the focus will be to try and get fed-eral mandates reduced to cut down on the amount of red tape involved, which then adds to the cost of even local projects. As a matter of fact, two of our county projects were featured in a General Accounting Ofce report on federally funded jobs, he said. The rst was a sidewalk project at Sun N Lakes of Lake Placid that was sole-ly funded by county mon-ey, while the other was a federally funded sidewalk project at Sun N Lake of Sebring. There was a 55 percent difference per linear foot in cost between the two, Gavarette said.That was 55 percent more for the federal job than for the lo-cal one. He said the pattern could be seen in a wide array of different kinds of engineering jobs rang-ing from resurfac-ing proj-ects to in-tersection improve-ments. Gava-rette said the problem extends past Highlands County and across the entire Unit-ed States with red tape adding 50 cents on the dollar to the cost of such work. There is about a 50 percent increase be-tween actual construction costs and project man-agement, he said. They have checklists for their checklists on every proj-ect and they are done continuously. Gavarette said the elim-ination of the cumber-some paperwork would also make more time for county employees to do other, more productive work. As far as his goals for NACE, Gavarette said one of his objectives will be to work more closely with the National Associ-ation of Counties in get-ting things done more ef-ciently. Theres no reason their transportation folks and our transportation folks need to be duplicating our efforts, he said. On its website, NACE of-cials indicate the pur-pose of the organization specically is to advance county engineering and management by providing a forum for exchange of ideas and information. Their goals are to im-prove service to the pub-lic by inuencing nation-al legislation affecting county transportation and public works depart-ments, as well as to im-prove relations and co-operation among county engineers and related agencies.

She was born on Aug. 11, 1923 in Lake Placid to Leon Lucius and Sallie Octavia (Hendry) Henderson. She was a homemaker and a farmer, and a member of First Baptist Church of Sebring for more than 40 years, being one of 11 persons who began the mission constituted as Whispering Pines Baptist Church. She served as the Womens Mission Union director at First Baptist Church and Whispering Pines Baptist Church, was a charter member of the Highlands County Genealogical Society, a member of Florida State Genealogical Society, a member of Florida Native Plant Society Sun Ridge Charter, and has been a lifelong resident of Highlands County.

Dell believes those events, coupled with next weeks symmetrical arrangement of Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto known as the Grand Cardinal Cross heralds a time of change. The last time these things (all) happened was 2,000 years ago, Dell said. For Eric Christiansen, chair of the Natural Sciences Department at South Florida State College, the eclipse is a good reminder of how humans are lucky Earth has a relatively large moon to stabilize its rotation and make the planet habitable. The eclipse also a good recruitment tool for him. He regularly invites his astronomy students and the public every three weeks or once a month to Star Parties to peer through a telescope at a celestial event. Those who come to the parties often sign up for his astronomy class. Tuesdays blood-moon eclipse occurred between 3:45-4:20 a.m. Tuesday. The blood red color comes from the suns light being refracted through the thick edges of the Earths atmosphere and falling on the moon, Christiansen said. Three other lunar eclipses visible from North America are expected on Oct. 8, 2014; April 4, 2015, and Sept. 28, 2015. Between two and ve lunar eclipses may occur each year, he said, but are not always visible from the same spot on Earth. Astronomy helps determine how visible such events will be. De ned in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as the study of objects and matter outside the earths atmosphere and of their physical and chemical properties, astronomy is very heavy on math, Christiansen said, because its a branch of physics that measures the movement of solid objects and light. Astrology, by contrast, is de ned as the study of how positions and movements of stars and planets may in uence events and the lives and behavior of people on Earth. Dell said people have been watching the skies for eons to know when to plant and pointed out that the moons gravity in uences tides. If it can affect seawater, it can affect the water and energy in our bodies, she said. While she also has heard a lot of people say the Grand Cardinal Cross, upcoming meteor showers and lunar eclipses are a sign of the end of time, she doesnt believe that. Im not giving energy to that, Dell said. Its a time for rebirth, but with birth, theres pain. Christiansen does say the moons gravity profoundly affects tides and stabilizes Earths rotation, but he doesnt assign meaning to planetary movements or regular lunar or solar eclipses. Theres a lot of prophecy, but these objects have been moving since the beginning of creation, Christiansen said. Theres no scientific basis for that. The biggest effect he has seen celestial events have on human behavior is a reawakening of interest in the stars, which almost every person seems to have from a young age. Its a childhood fascination that they rekindle when they get older, Christiansen said. MOON FROM PAGE A1 BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSUN N LAKE Its the big 4-0 for the community of Sun N Lake and things are getting into party mode. Tenille Drury-Smith, Community Services Director, has planned an enormous amount of fun for the 40th birthday celebration and is inviting the entire county out to participate in all the festivities. The week-long celebration kicked off Sunday with the member golf tournament.

www.newssun.com Wednesday, April 16, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A9 SPORTS BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com AVON PARK It may have taken the better part of the season, but the South Florida Lady Panthers are coming around. And not a moment too soon. Nothing like waiting until the last four games to start playing the way were ca pable, head coach Carlos Falla said after his squad swept Mondays double header from visiting Hill sborough. SFSC came into the contest with a 3-9 record in the Suncoast Confer ence, leaving them hang ing out in the cellar. But they were still within reach of the nal playoff spot in the state tour nament, one game behind St. Peters burg at 4-8, and a game and a half out of third behind Hillsbor ough at 6-8. So Monday was their chance to make some noise, and that they did, powering their way to 5-2 and 7-0 wins over the Hawks. After scratching for two runs in the rst inning of the opener, the Panthers turned up the power as Caitlyn Lytle and Alexis Adams blasted home runs over the fence, with Paige Davis legging out an in side-the-park home run to provide for the win ning margin. Again in the nightcap, it was a power parade the paved the way to a win. Lauren Harris smashed Lady Panthers power into playoff picture Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Mackenzie Hunt capped off Mondays sweep of Hillsborough with one of ve home runs the Panthers powered out on the night. SEE SFSC | A12 BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com AVON PARK It has been a long season for rst-year head coach Brit tany Spencer as she be gins the task of turning around the Red Devil soft ball program. Im 23 but I think I now look like Im 43, she said Monday night, after her team saw its season come to an end with an 11-1 loss to Lake Placid in the District 9-4A tournament. The tournament, of cially hosted by Frost proof, was supposed the see the higher seeded Lady Dragons play host to this opening-round con test. But a conict in a sched uling of events at Lake Placid High School saw it redirected to where the Dragons played at Avon Park, against the Lady Devils, as the home team. And it was the visitors who drew rst blood as patient eyes at the plate drew four walks in the top of the rst to plate the opening run. But the Dragons an swered right back in the bottom half. With one out, Lahna Sedatol was hit by a pitch and came around to score on Annie Weber-Callah ans double. Raveen Gobourne then ripped a triple to bring Weber-Callahan in and Holly Krett lofted a sac rice y to make it a 3-1 game. The second inning went by without a score and while the Devils threat ened in the top of the third, relief pitcher Shan non Huber got out of it to maintain the slim lead. That lead grew a bit larger in the bottom of the third when Weber-Callah an beat out an ineld hit and Gobourne walked. The two moved up a base during Kretts at bat and then Weber-Callahan raced in when a pitch got away. Krett then laid down a successful squeeze bunt that got Gobourne in and pushed the lead to 5-1. A run in the fourth Dragons end season for Lady Devils Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Nicole Moore reaches to nab this shallow liner Monday night in Lake Placids district tournament win.

DISTRICT TRACK TIME RONALD BLUM Associated Press NEW YORK The head of baseballs Inter net company defends the sports new replay sys tem. Bob Bowman, chief ex ecutive ofcer of MLB Ad vanced Media, said Tues day the system based at his companys ofce has largely worked. Through Monday, calls by umpires on the eld have been conrmed in 33 of 89 challenges and overturned in 30. For 25 others, calls stood because of a lack of clear and convincing evidence. In one instance, um pires asked for a video re view to check the ballsstrike count. Technology takes awhile to work, Bow man said during a pan el discussion at the MLB Diversity Business Sum mit. I dont know if you ever bought a new car. You dont know how all that stuff works right away. And if you ever get a new phone, it takes you awhile to learn it. Were under 30 days old, and I know weve arrived be cause ESPN is already criticizing us. And it must be great to be perfect the way ESPN is. ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz declined com ment. Boston manager John Farrell was ejected af ter a call was overturned during Sundays game against the Yankees, which gave New York an additional run in a game it went on to win 3-2. A day earlier, MLB ad mitted it incorrectly failed to overturn a call that was in favor of the Yankees and said it was because the replay room in New York did not immediate ly have access to some of the camera angles shown during broadcasts. Our concern was the length of the game, Yan kees owner Hal Stein brenner said, and clearly it hasnt affected that. Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts had a more parochial and playful view. Were two and two in challenges, so its clear to us the replay system only works about half the time, he said. MLB Internet head defends replay from criticism SFSC 5,7 HSC 2,0

A12 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, April 16, 2014 www.newssun.com made it 6-1, but the Dev il defense was doing its job and limited the Lake Placid scoring chances. It wasnt until the sixth that the Dragons opened it up and nished it off. Sedatol and Weber-Cal lahan started it with con secutive singles and Go bourne walked to load the bases. One out later, Breauna Corley ripped a long linedrive that one-hopped the left-eld fence for a bases-clearing double to make it 9-1. Huber reached on a bunt single, Corley came in on a wild pitch and a walk, hit batter and an other walk later, Huber came in with the mercyrule run. The girls played re ally well tonight, Drag on head coach Ale sia Cheshire said. They didnt give anything to us, but we hit the ball well when we needed to. And while it was a tough season for Spencer, it was one that has seen the program taking steps in the right direction. There were still some mental mistakes, but the effort was there, she said. The girls have made progress all season and are improving. But we just dont have a lot of experience and need to get stronger. She and her Lady Dev ils will work toward that in the offseason, while Lake Placids season con tinues for at least one more game. The team was slated to face McKeel at Frostproof Tuesday night in a tour nament seminal. We didnt play so well the last time we played them, Cheshire said. We stayed with them, for the most part, the rst time, so it should be in teresting. NO DEALER FEES NO DEALER FEES SINCE 1931* PLUS TAX + TAG, W.A.C. CHRYSLER CAPITAL.

They then opened the lead up with ve in the bottom of the sixth. With one out, Kala Thompson singled to right with Lytle, Davis and Adams each drawing walks to bring Thomp son in and keep the bases loaded. Kelly Olson then ripped one back up the middle that glanced off the pitch ers mitt, was snared by the second baseman and thrown to rst for the out, though Lytle scored on the play to make it a 4-0 lead. Mackenzie Hunt then hit the big blow, blasting a three-run shot over the fence in right, putting the margin at 7-0 with just three outs left to go. And despite a single and double in the top of the seventh for the Hawks, those three outs soon came and put the Panthers back in the mix. Hillsboroughs confer ence schedule is done, with them sitting with a 6-10 record. St. Petersburg was slat ed to host rst-place Polk State Tuesday and play at second-seed State Col lege of Florida Thursday to determine their n ish, while SFSC nishes out their conference slate Thursday at Polk.

First, I got out some fresh strawberries and while in my walkin I got a smell of fresh basil, so I de-cided to use that as an ingredient as well. I gathered up some extra virgin olive oil and white balsamic vinegar and headed to my food pro-cessor. I washed my straw-berries and basil, then trimmed the stems and leaves off my berries and placed them in the pro-cessor. I spun them until they were a smooth pure. After tasting the berries, I decided they needed to be a bit sweeter to stand up to the acid from the vin-egar. I added some hon-ey while the processor was running. Next, I gave my basil a rough chop with my knife and tossed it into the processor and let it spin for about one min-ute. The avor of the straw-berry next to the fresh basil was awesome, so I knew I was onto some-thing. I added the white balsamic vinegar, which I generally use in salad dressings to keep from changing the color of the dressing. At this point, I stopped the processor and tasted it to see if the acid and sweetness had a nice balance. You will know if it doesnt by sharp bites on the sides of your tongue from the acid. Sometimes for fun I will ask one of my cooks to taste something that I am looking for that acid/sug-ar balance in and just by the look on their faces I know if it is right or not. I dont know about you, but it always makes me feel good inside when someone makes a smile after tasting some-thing I have made. This recipe I have for you is with strawberries but you could do it with all kinds of fruit man-goes will be ripe in about six weeks and they make a great substitute for the strawberries. Cheers, Chef.STRAWBERRY B A SIL VINIAGRETTE 4 pints fresh strawberries 2 oz. fresh basil 2 oz. white balsamic vin-egar 5 oz. extra virgin olive oil 1 oz. pure honey Pinch of saltPRE P ARATION1. Wash basil and berries then remove stems and leaves. 2. Rough chop basil. 3. Put berries into food proces-sor and spin until smooth. 4. Add honey while the proces-sor is running 5. Stop processor and add ba-sil then turn it back on and slowly add the vinegar then stop and taste to see if the balance needs adjustment. 6. Add the oil very slowly while the machine is running so that it will emulsify into the berries and vinegar. 7. Taste and see if the salt is needed. CHEFS CORNERTim Spain DEAR ABBY: I have been in a long-distance relationship with Victor for several years. Recently I began to suspect he was cheating. What raised my suspicion was that I sud-denly couldnt reach him on the weekends. Usual-ly we would Skype Sun-day night for me, Monday morning for him. Last February when I visited him, I snooped in his phone spare me the condemnation. I found an email he had written to an old girlfriend in which he suggested they plan their next rendezvous. I plan on dumping him, but I dont know how to go about it. Ive always been bad at dumping peo-ple. Should I write him a letter and confess that I snooped? My rst inclina-tion is to disconnect com-pletely and say nothing. Im afraid to confront him because he is ob-viously a good liar. Im afraid if I do, hell make me doubt the evidence ... trust me, hes that good! CHEATED ON IN L.A.DEAR CHEATED ON: Why any woman would stay with someone who is a practiced liar (that good) is beyond me. My advice is to disconnect from him and say nothing. It should be interesting to see how long it takes him to notice your absence. When he does which probably wont be on a weekend tell him the romance is over and refer-ence the email he sent his former girlfriend. Expect him to go on the offensive and try to make you feel guilty for having checked his cellphone. Dont buy it, and dont relent. Just be glad you found out now. DEAR ABBY: I dont know if you have ad-dressed the issue of wom-en and breast augmenta-tion from the standpoint of noticing the work done, but I am trying to nd a way to say I noticed without being crude or tacky. My wife works with a woman who recently had augmentation surgery, and we agree that the doc-tor did a very nice job. Ac-cording to my wife, the woman is not shy about discussing her surgery. I have known her for years, and were on friendly terms. We talk often and exchange hugs. How would I go about complimenting her on her new look? I dont want to say the wrong thing. Or should I just say nothing? ENJO YS THE VIEW IN PHOENIXDEAR ENJOYS THE VIEW: All you need to say is, You look GREAT! and shell get the message.

This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the worlds population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity in the West. Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine.AcupunctureAcupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of the body to restore a balanced flow of energy. Through acupuncture, Qi (energy) is allowed to move freely throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This balance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and well-being.Chinese HerbsFor as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal medicine has been around in some shape or form.

By now, most of us know how important it is to get an adequate amount of dark leafy greens into our diets on a regular basis. And the best kind of dark leafy green to eat a lot of is any dark leafy green that belongs to the cruciferous family. Collard greens are one of those dark and leafy friends! Collard greens are a wonderful item to add to your veggie rotation. They are versatile, they taste good, and theyre one of the most nutritious vegetables you can eat: Blood health. Collard greens have a tremendous amount of chlorophyll in them. Chlorophyll is excellent for building blood in the human body. For this reason, juicing collard greens is excellent for anyone suffering from anemia or other disorders of the blood. Bone strength. Collards aid in the repair and development of bones. Cancer prevention. Collard greens have very high levels of antioxidants, lowering your risk of developing cancer. Cholesterol levels. Collards are high in folate, ber and vitamins A and C all nutrients that help level blood cholesterol levels. Dementia prevention and heart health. Collard greens contain high levels of folate which can lower levels of homocysteine. Homocysteine is believed to cause Alzheimers disease as well as stroke sand heart attacks. Skin health. Collard greens contain lutein which helps improve the elasticity and rmness of skin. Immunity. Vitamin C is found in abundance in collard greens and Vitamin C, of course, is wonderful for strengthening the immune system and ghting several diseases. Weight loss. The chlorophyll and nutrients found in collard greens help rev up your metabolism. Adding collard greens to your juice in the morning will help to melt that fat off your bod! Eye health. Collard greens contain carotenoids which are special antioxidants that protect your eyes from damage due to ultraviolet lights. At the market, look for collards with smooth rm leaves. You dont want to keep them around the kitchen for more than three days in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. My favorite way to eat collard greens is juiced raw. you can cook them as a side dish if you like but if you do choose this route, only steam them for a couple of minutes in a bit of water. That helps to keep their nutrients in tact. If you overcook collard greens you cook all the nutrition out of them and you end up with a mushy mess! A little warning before you go too crazy with the collards. Consume in moderation! Too much collard green juice can cause your thyroid to swell so limit your intake to about 3 servings of collard green juice per week. These greens also contain oxalic acid which should be avoided in anyone with a history of kidney disease.Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of Body Clutter and the Saving Dinner series.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 16, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Robert Moore from the American Legion Post 25 present-ed Donald Elliott with a check for $1,050 to spon-sor two veterans to attend the honor ight in May. The money was raised by the American Legion through donations from members. Moore said, Our Amer-ican Legion Post lost 40 World War II veterans just this past year. It is impor-tant to send World War II veterans as soon as pos-sible. This is a worthwhile cause and we are honored to work with the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club to send two veterans. The Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club is sending eight veterans and guard-ians on the honor ight this year. The inaugural Hon-or Flight Tour took place in May 2005. Six small planes ew out of Spring-eld, Ohio taking 12 World War II veterans on a visit to the memorial in Washington, DC. In August 2005, an ev-er-expanding waiting list of veterans led to the transition of commer-cial airline carriers with the goal of accommo-dating as many veterans as possible. Partnering with HonorAir in Hender-sonville, N.C., the Hon-or Flight Network was formed. In 2006, commercial ights were exclusively used due to the number of veterans on the waiting list and adverse weather conditions that prohib-ited small aircraft from participating on a regular schedule. Locally, another 300 veterans completed the journey during that year. The mission and ide-als of the program began to spread across America. Other cities and states be-came aware of the efforts and working relationships were fostered with dedi-cated community leaders in several states. Jeff Miller in Hender-sonville, N.C., led the ex-pansion into areas not serviced by direct com-mercial ights to the Washington, D.C. area. He accomplished what was thought to be impossible, organizing and obtaining funding to y an entire commercial jet lled with local area veterans to visit the monument. Honor Flight Network is also paying tribute to Americas other heroes who served during the Korean Conict. They, too, have given so much and its time they are shown that their efforts are not forgotten.Lake Placid Rotarians, Legion members help fund honor flights Courtesy photoRobert Moore (left), American Legion Post 25, accepts a check from Donald Elliott, past president, Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club.

After an in-teresting discussion the consensuses of opinion is that TOPS isnt a mira-cle club where one joins and instantly becomes the weight they have al-ways wanted, but through hard work, change of hab-its and help from friends, they can lose weight and become a lot healthier. Ethel Emanuel led the singing of Thanks For The Friends At TOPS. Members may sing a little off key but the enthusiasm is there.

Awards to Mary Anderson, June Elam, Barbara Embick, Anna Harrington,, Christie Nowland, Judy OBoyle, Linda Pollard, Theresa Rhodes, and Betty Snyder for losing four weeks in a row. Renewing at a lower weight were Fay Nutt, Jean Ottoway, and Hattie Troutman and they re-ceived a Yes I Can charm. Ethel Emanuel was honored for her perfect attendance and for stay-ing in her lea-way. Those losing two pounds or more in March were: Lori Barber, Susan Caldwell, Vi Christian, June Elam, and Mary Jo Finn June Elam won the trav-el prize and Betty Kerpan is the next person to try to lose four weeks in a row.

Tropical Harbor EstatesBy Arlene CloustonLAKE PLACID More than 100 people came out to the mens pancake breakfast April 5. Whether you asked for blueber-ries or plain, the pancakes were enjoyed with sau-sage, orange juice and a good cup of coffee. Monday morning coffee was made by Marilyn and Ed Cromer, and Marysue and Derek Willeke, and hosted with frost-ed doughnuts in honor of birthdays and anni-versaries. Peggy Sue read the birthdays and anni-versaries and the follow-ing were present: Nancy Goudreau, Derek Willeke, and for the anniversary, we had Ed and Marilyn Cromer. Ruth Ann Walls played the piano and we sang our greetings to them. We do have guests in the park. Well, Babette and Bob Ford are own-ers, but they spend so few days with us that when they appear, they seem like guests. Helen Weylie is here visiting her twin sister, Heurtha Thomson, and its always good to see her too. Our sunshine lady told us that Linda and Steve Riders son was in a bad car accident. Barbara Pryor and Mike Nowak were in the hospital. We were sorry to hear that Charles Burkett has passed away. Please sign the our cards to them and the family of Charles Burkett. Brenda Knoche an-nounced that the NuHope movie for April 27 will be Secondhand Lions. It is a 2003 American comedy and drama. In the movie are Haley Joel Osment, Robert Duvall, Michael Caine, Kyra Sedgwick and Mitchel Musso. The free matinee starts at 3 p.m., but we Nu-Hope ladies serve coffee and cake at 2:30 p.m., so come and enjoy. Any donations given for Nu-Hope Elder Care Services are always appreciated. The Big Red Bus will be in our park again on April 28 for blood donations. The sign-up sheets will be available in the clubhouse. The last Tuesday/ Thursday morning indoor exercise class will be April 24. They will resume in the fall. Computer class will continue during the sum-mer. Class will be held the rst and third Thursdays of each month at 3:30 p.m. Our book club had its last discussion/meet-ing on April 3. We do have a list of books to start our summer read-ing program: A House in the Sky, by Amanda Lend Oh Out; The Rose Project, by Graeme Simsion; The Gillead by Marilyn Robinson; Riverton (Peace Corps); Lincolns Dressmaker; Wild Swans, 3 genera-tions of Chinese Women: and Someone Knows My Name (the Book of Negros). Im always glad to re-ceive newsie items on grandchildren: Kyle Marman, grandson of Carole and Jim Gray, and Evelyn Guiney, recent-ly verbally committed to Florida Atlantic University to play baseball. He is presently a junior at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando. He is a starting pitcher with a 5-0 record this year. Louis Wackershauser called the April Tropical Harbor HOA monthly meeting to order on April 8. Complete information on each monthly meet-ing can be found on the homeowners website. Tuesday morning la-dies coffee on April 8 was led by Marilyn Cromer. We will be having an Easter ham dinner at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 20. People are asked to buy tickets in advance and to sign up for a dish to pass. If you plan to share Easter diner in the clubhouse, please cooperate with the rules. The carry-in dinner at 6 p.m. April 24 was also mentioned. The noon carry-in on April 8 had Marilyn Cromer giving grace. We had good food and good friends to share with. It as a fun gathering and we ended the meal with a sing-a-long. Ruth Ann Walls played the piano. At these noon meals, you never know what may transpire. For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of potential happiness. FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS I had to put my 3-pound, 6-year-old Maltese to sleep on Jan 17, 2013. Animal lovers know what I mean when I say I went into a deep mourning and depres-sion. My extreme love for that dog was because af-ter being dogless for a few years I nally con-vinced my husband it was time for another dog. Our agreement was that it would be a dog I could carry with me and not leave with him when I went gallivanting. So began my search for a tiny Maltese. Why that breed? Because when I was 3 years old, my mother gave my Maltese dog away. She said it bit me. I searched the pounds and got online for res-cue dogs and then for local breeders. I found the dog I wanted and it was cheap, but it was in South America. Then I found the perfect dog, but it was in Brooklyn. An excuse to go to Long Island to visit my son, who offered to buy it for me. He wasnt even put off by the price of $1,100. So I prepared. I got my ticket to New York, took along my underseat dog carrying case, and notes from two doctors that I needed the ani-mal to accompany me back to Florida to allevi-ate my fear of ying. You couldnt put a tiny pup-py in the cold baggage compartment. I would have it right under the seat with me. I know, I know. This is the story about a cat. Im getting to it, but I just have to tell you this aside rst. Before we went to Brooklyn to the pet shop, my son cau-tioned me not to ooh and aaah and love the dog right away. It would be a poor bargaining chip to want the dog. Be reserved. So when they brought the dog in and put her on the oor, Mathew fell down on the foor next to her and killed his bargain-ing chip. Back to the cat. A dear friend who has multiple dogs and cats had empathy for my de-spair and made me an offer I couldnt refuse. I could take her 2-yearold Siamese cat that had been spade and had a chip (not on her shoul-der ... but for identica-tion). If I wanted to re-turn her, I could and if I returned her and wanted her back, I could do that too. So I brought Lilly home with me. Another aside: When I was little I would bring home any stray cat or dog. Actually they fol-lowed me, was my ex-cuse. The cats never stayed. Occasionally a dog or even two would. I know. This is the sto-ry about the cat. So Lily came home with me in the dog car-ry case. Diana gave me a starter kit with every-thing I would need ex-cept a littler box, which I prepared. I was skeptical that the cat would nd it in a strange place but she did ... she also found my bed. Then started the rou-tine of Where is the cat? Its not like a dog that you call and teach him to come. She found places to hide I never knew we had. She didnt come, sit or stay. Peculiarly, my hus-band who ignored the dog, likes her. Where is the Dog, he asks. Both of us attribute doglike qualities to the cat, which she doesnt have. So, of course, we are dis-appointed. It is so unfair to us. But after 10 months of residence, she is still do-ing something new ev-ery so often. She never ceases to amaze me. We went away for a week-end and left her at dear Dr. Giassandander. I took one of her pillows (she wont sleep in the bed I provided) along from a chair she favored and wrapped my pants around it for familiar-ity. She wouldnt come off it or out of the cage. Dr. Gissandander had to physically take her out to check on her. She doesnt play with toys. I brought a number of attractive objects for her, but her best toy is a large paper shopping bag in which she ghts cat demons. She can tell time. When it is supper time she meows and paces between the refrigerator and her dish. If you un-derstand sign language she is very explicit. She is also a trainer by purring next to me, she creates a pavlon effect in me I pet her. She groomed my hair. Hopped up on the bed and proceeded to wake me up. I thought it would be all wet and sticky but when I got up it was just laying nice and at. Well now that she is settled in, maybe, just maybe, I will start my campaign to get a dog. She needs a pet and companion for when we are out. One thing, she taught me something I didnt understand. No mat-ter what ... even if she sat and stayed and came when I called her ... She wouldnt be a dog.Pearl Carter is a resident of Lake Placid.

Bicyclists using a public roadway are considered operators of motor vehicles and are responsible for observing all traffic laws. With few exceptions, there is only one road and it is up to motorists and bicyclists to treat each other with care and respect. Adherence to the law is the foundation of respect.

I get to show my emotions through my singing. She is no stranger to area stag es, whether or not its singing or acting. Ever since I was 7, Ive been doing theater at Highlands Lit tle Theatre, and I really started singing and dancing. All thr ee of those things together is what I love doing, she added. She took her rst Heartland Idol division crown when she was 10, and last year, won the Teen divi sion.

NOT EVER. 4x4 RUNS GREAT BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING No one was seriously injured Monday, but police are investigat ing why a Chevrolet sedan ran over the median and under a F ord pickup that was waiting to turn around on U.S. 27. The wreck took place at approximately 12:15 / p.m. Tracy Whalen, 52, of Lake land was handling calls for M edtronic, his employer, and was waiting in south bound U-turn lane to turn nor th on U.S. 27 in front of the News-Sun building at 2227 U.S. 27 South. There were a couple of cars ahead of me, Whalen said. I was stopped wait ing to turn around. J ust then, a northbound silver Chevrolet Impa la swerved left, jumped the curb and plo wed un der his white Ford F150 C rew-cab pickup, shear ing off the running board and lifting the tr uck by its frame, dangling the two drivers side wheels. Whalen got out and comforted the driver of the car Sally Hart, 76, of Sebring while sheriffs deputies, Sebring police, Sebring Fire Department and Emergency Medi cal Services personnel ar rived. She said her abdomen was hurting, Whalen said. She was very shook up. A squad of nurses crossed the southbound lanes with a wheelchair for Hart while Sebring Po lice Ofcer Paul Deshazo inv estigated the scene. Deshazo conrmed that the Impala seemed to have leapt the curb from the northbound lanes and dove under the trucks left side. He couldnt say why Harts car had done that. She was transported from the scene by EMS for pos sible injuries, and Deshazo said he had to complete his investigation befor e he could issue a ci tation, if at all. The tur n lane and inside lanes on both sides of the highway were open again within 45 minutes.Car plows under pickup in turn lane Phil Attinger/News-SunDeputies and police guide trafc Monday around the southbound U-turn lane on U.S. 27 in front of the NewsSun building. A northbound Chevrolet Impala made a left turn over the median and plowed under a Ford F150 that was waiting to turn north. No one was seriously injured, although 76-year-old Sally Hart of Sebring, who was driving the sedan, was taken to a local hospital to check for possible injuries. Police have not nished their investigation. BY BARR YY FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING After better than eight years serving up dinners at their F airmount Plaza loca tion, Yiannis is no more. O n their Facebook page, the owners and staff announced the closing with heavy hearts, saying that the news came as unex pectedly as we deliver it to y ou. The post said appar ently the Fairmount Plaza recently was pur chased and the new o wners had chosen not to renew the lease for the popular restaurant and that the process was accelerated and the nal word came with no time to share it with the people who made us the best steakhouse in High lands County. Yianni E manoilid is, the owner and operator of the business, has been r unning res taurants in Highlands C ounty for three de cades. He owned and oper ated the Olympic Restaurant in Avon Park prior to opening his up scale dining facility in S ebring. He said there were about 30 employees that had been working for the establishment when it shut down. When asked about whether or not he would open his restaurant in another location, Eman oilidis said his plans for the futur e were not clear at this point. The Fairmount Plaza reportedly has been pur chased by the New Yorkbased H utman. Re/Max Realty Plus has been retained to manage the facility and handle the leasing. Bro ker/Owner Chip Boring said his r m has been in search of a new restau ranteur to open in the F airmount location and already has a number of prospects for the busi ness opportunity.

The r e call came in at 9:03 / p.m., Mann said. The rst re crews on the scene reported that it was a fully involved ga rage re, but all of the r esidents were out of the house.

Leavitt rediscovered the master artist and decades worth of his incredible work just over a year ago and befriended Roberts, who had no family left. Af ter Leavitt introduced Roberts work to the public again, one of his paintings sold for an HCA record $10,000. Roberts work was so in uential local writer and N ews-Sun Correspondent Jan Merop wrote a book, I Never Paint Alone, that showcases the artists work over the decades. I Never Paint Alone was debuted for purchase to the public in mid-De cember 2013 and remains on sale thr ough the HCA. Twenty copies of signed books were available to the public. I will always remember his sense of humor and his humility. For such a man of talent and stature, he was so warm and friendly. His tenacity was remarkable. He fought through great pain to continue painting, Leavitt said of Roberts. Leavitt and the HCA will continue searching for the perfect location to open a cultural center that will permanently showcase Roberts art. Leavitt said that the concept of the coming museum/cultur al center will remain the same as befor e: to create an educational and learn ing center that will be anchored by Roberts work.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 16, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Y OO UR VIEWS Combining their income inequali ty obsession with business bashing, s ome liberals are blaming supposed corporate greed for the nancial challeng es of the poor. Such theories are only plau sible in the abstract. Under scrutiny, they f all apart. A recent video produced by Slate, a lib eral website, argues that Walmart could r aise wages and ultimately save taxpayer money because fewer of its workers would qualify for food stamps. Currently, Slate says, cashiers are paid an average wage of $8.81 per hour. To raise that sum to $13.63, Slate argues, Walmart could raise prices 1.4 percent. A 68-cent box of macaroni and cheese would instead cost 69 cents. Slate claims this would keep many Walmart em ployees off food stamps. This sounds like a win-win. B ut Rob ert VerBruggen, editor of RealClearPolicy, notes the plan has some major aws For one thing, it requires some poor people to pay more for goods so other equally poor people can get a raise. This isnt Robin Hood robbing the rich to give to the poor. Its robbing the poor to give to the poor. Research from the University of Cali fornia at Berkeley has concluded that if W almart raised prices to fund a higher minimum wage, 28.1 percent of the price increase would be borne by consumers in families with incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Many oth er Walmart customers facing higher pric es are thoroughly middle-income families who ar ent exactly rolling in dough. Even if that doesnt bother you, the plan has other problems. For one thing, about half of that cashiers raise would be imme diately lost thanks to the perverse incen tives of welfare. J effrey Dorman, a Forbes contributor, has noted that those on welfare could face a huge effective tax rate if their minimum wage was increased to $10.10 per hour. Dorman wrote that a hypothetical single mom with one kid would see more than half of the proposed minimum wage in crease offset by a reduction in benets from the federal government and increased tax es. The hypothetical mother would face a reduction in her federal Earned Income Tax Credit and in food stamp support. She would now have to pay employment taxes on her increased earnings. Essentially, these workers face the equivalent of a 50 percent or higher tax rate, Dorman wrote. Critics have long noted such features are one reason why welfare programs can discourage work and upward mobility. The Slate plan also ignores the harsh re alities of market competition. Walmart and other lar ge retailers operate in a lowmargin environment. A 1.4 percent price increase might not sound like a lot, but it could easily lead customers to make pur chases at places that arent (yet) targets of a liber al witch hunt. That in turn could lead to layoffs at Walmart. In the abstract realm of liberal econom ics, businesses can simply raise prices at will and ev eryone benets; no one gets seriously hurt.

Even though it is hard to fath om that a 23-year-old can die of natural causes with a heart attack, your kind wor ds, cards, meals and dona tions have helped us get through this difcult time Thank you to all of Jimmys friends, teachers, scout leaders, church mem bers and coaches who showed him a lot of lo ve. A special thank you to the members of First United Method ist Church, Sebring High School, the city of S ebring, Phi Kappa Tau Broth ers, the University of Florida and Boy Scouts of Amer ica for helping us me morialize Jimmy and getting through this tr ying time. As an organ donor, Jimmy helped several children and adults but with your donations, the Boy Scouts of America, The Place of Hope and The Methodist Childrens Home received nancial help. A scholarship for a Sebring High School student in Jimmys name was also established that we hope to con tinue. This May, the University of Flor ida will grant a posthumous degree in biology in J immys honor. As a preschooler, Jimmy was told not to go out by the pool without someone watching him to save him in case he fell in the water. He said, I dont need anyone to watch me ...

I want to giv e a particularly heartfelt thanks to the efforts of JoAnn Chan dler, Julie Whitmire and Sue England, who not only put in extr a time beyond normal business hours, but made us feel like part of the Lake Placid fam ily. Although my isister did not have an account with Wauchula, they treat ed us like family and showed a spirit of hospitality that seems to be lost in much of America today.

Where did my lit tle boy go? That little bo y who wore bib overalls, annel shirts and cowboy boots. That lit tle boy who loved to play outside but r arely seemed to get dirty. That little boy who always had a beauti ful smile and gorgeous eyes. That little bo y who loved to play baseball, football, skateboard, whatever. Where did he go? Standing in front of me now is a 17-year-old boy try ing so hard to nd his own way in life Hes traded in his overalls, annel shirts and cowboy boots for shorts, a t-shirt and tennis shoes. Staying clean has gone by the way side since he likes to spend time under his tr uck looking at how it all works. Getting out and playing ball or rid ing the skateboard has been o vertaken by video games and driving his truck. The one thing that has remained the same is the beautiful smile and those gorgeous eyes. Yes, Daniel is growing up. The bumps have sometimes been a challenge. Not only for myself, but also for him. I work hard to gure out how to handle his teenage temperament, and he works hard at guring out how to deal with the fact that hes not quite an adult. Life can be fun, and the conversa tions interesting, around our house We both agree that we may not always like each other, but the love and bond that we share is uncondi tional. And though he and his sister may not always agree or see things the way I see them, they also have an incredible love for each other. They argue a lot, and there are times that I just want to get away from both of them, but I admit they are closer in many ways than I was to either of my siblings at this age. Theyll grumble a lot, but either would do anything for the other. As I looked at Daniel standing there in his cap and gown, I started to re member so much of what has tr anspired in the past 12 years. Then this boy who now stands more than a head taller than me walked over, wrapped his arms around my neck, hugged me and whispered, Mom, thank you for always being by my side. The rst tears of what Im sure will be many then be gan to ow. They were tears of jo y for him as he starts to prepare for his journey to adulthood, and tears of sorrow for me. My baby is growing up. It doesnt matter that he has been 17 for nearly a year already. Daniel has still been my baby boy. Now, though, I am forced to admit to my self that he is nearly an adult.

A6 | NEWSSS U nN | WW ednesday April 16, 2014 www.newssun.com Management Jeff Sabin conrmed that the com pany has been in preliminary negotiations with A von Park for such an ar rangement. H owever, ofcials in Hardee County said it does not appear that such a deal will happen. Our public works di rector received a call fr om the Avon Park city manager and we told him wed take a look and analyze it, said Hard ee County Administrator Lex Albritton Jr. But I don t see where it is going to be favorable. I dont see where it will reduce our costs. Albritton said Hardee County has its own land ll and recently awarded a contr act to enlarge it. The tipping fee alone sounded pretty good, but we still have to operate a landll whether or not we ship ours out. We have long-term closure and re cycling we have to maintain, so it really isnt any cheaper for us to do that at the rate theyre talking about, he said. Despite reports that Lake Placid could be taking their trash to Okeechobee, Lake Placid Town Manager Phil Wil liams said it appeared that the C aladium Capital of the World would con tinue to take the bulk of their r efuse to the High lands County location. The county has helped us out with a lot of things in different areas, and we have been a team play er with them for many y ears, Williams said. Williams said the deci sion came in the wake of a meeting he d had with Commissioner Jack Rich ie and Administrator June F isher. He did allow with a dif ference of $25 per ton in O keechobee compared to $40 a ton in High lands, that at least some of the garbage might be shipped to Okeechobee noting a $231 per load savings. We may take a portion over there, but for the most part we are going to stay with Highlands County, he said. He said that Okeechobee had shopped the transfer sta tion idea in Highlands C ounty several years ago. We really didnt have a place for a transfer sta tion, Williams said. I n giving Avon Park the green light, commission ers said they could not fault the city for wanting to save money. They also called on Fisher to con duct a rate study. Its somewhat disap pointing that the municipalities would consider going elsewhere but I understand they hav e to look after their pocket books, Commissioner R on Handley said. Commission Chairman Greg Harris asked if the county should even be in the landll business in the rst place, suggest ing that the county might lease out or want to sell the facility. Fisher did not indicate when a landll rate study might take place. UNIVERSALCENTERNATURALMARTIALARTSOF5 Days a week Adult & Children Classes!

Now only mor e serious inci dents go to the FHP. We try to not work ac cidents with serious injuries and give those to the H ighway Patrol, Schrad er said. Thats really their pr imary mission. He allowed that HCSO deputies had the abilities to work such incidents. However, that also could keep an ofcer from re sponding to other kinds of calls until the accident scene has been cleared. The severity of accidents handled by deputies, in some cases, boils down to a matter of time. It really comers down to Is there a trooper avail able within a reasonable dr iving distance? he said. While that has meant some additional training for some of the longertermed members of the force, Schrader said that newer deputies have been given that kind of instruc tion as part of their attendance at law enforcement academies Every one of them re ceives basic trafc crash inv estigation so they come out of there with that knowledge, he said. Due to budget con straints over the past several years, there has not been a designated tr af c enforcement unit in the depar tment. However, with the HCSO takeover of police duties in the city of Avon Park, the Sheriffs Ofce has started training deputies as trafc homi cide investigators. The underlying rea son is that the Florida H ighway Patrol does not work within a citys juris diction. So when we took o ver primary law enforce ment in the city of Avon P ark that became our re sponsibility, he said. Ther e are three ofcers who now have attended two classes for trafc ho micide investigation and r eportedly are nishing up a third. The ofce also has one deputy who got his trafc homicide train ing with another department and since has been emplo yed by the HCSO. Those investigators also need special equipment. The city of Avon Park has agreed to pick up half that cost, which Schrader said was about $8,000. Schrader dispelled a rumor that the HCSO is writing more tickets than before as a way to make money. We dont get any more money, and, in fact, our deputies actually write more warnings than they do tickets, he said. The reason we write citations is for people running red lights, speeding, right-ofway violations and even seat belt violations is to hopefully save lives. Some of the trafc en forcement questions were r aised by citizens who had been stopped on U.S. 27 in an area north of Avon Park. During the widening project there, the lim it had been set at 4045 mph. After the pr oj ect had been closed, ther e were no workers, no equipment and no in crease in the limit. S everal of the motorists stopped in that area said it was a speed trap, but Schrader said it was not. Between Feb. 1 and March 16 we wrote a to tal of 37 citations. They r anged in speed from 6078 miles per hour through there, he said. A majority of the Sher iffs Ofce cruisers have speed measur ing devic es either radar or laser units When they are not on other calls, or proac tive patrols, the ofcers ar e encouraged to work trafc. We have a deputy that works that area and he continued to work the area, Schrader said. Since that time, the speed limit has been raised in response to a trafc study by the Flori da Department of Transportation.

Gavarette said it wor ks very closely with the National Association of Counties in pushing changes in federal legisla tion that will have a direct effect on local oper ations. Our number one prior ity is getting a new transportation bill passed, he said. We want to get as much relief as we can for our local roads. Although it is an issue being dealt with by Con gress in Washington, D.C, G avarette said the focus will be to try and get fed eral mandates reduced to cut do wn on the amount of red tape involved, which then adds to the cost of even local projects. As a matter of fact, two of our county projects were featured in a General Accounting Ofce report on federally funded jobs, he said. The rst was a sidewalk project at Sun N Lakes of Lake Placid that was sole ly funded by county money, while the other was a feder ally funded sidewalk project at Sun N Lake of Sebring. There was a 55 percent difference per linear foot in cost between the two, Gavarette said.That was 55 percent more for the federal job than for the lo cal one. H e said the pattern could be seen in a wide array of different kinds of engineering jobs rang ing from r esurfac ing projects to intersection impr ove ments. Ga va rette said the pr oblem extends past Highlands County and across the entire Unit ed States with red tape adding 50 cents on the dollar to the cost of such work. There is about a 50 percent increase be tween actual construction costs and pr oject man agement, he said. They hav e checklists for their checklists on every proj ect and they are done continuously . Gavarette said the elim ination of the cumber some paperwork would also make mor e time for county employees to do other, more productive work. As far as his goals for NACE, Gavarette said one of his objectives will be to work more closely with the National Associ ation of Counties in getting things done more efciently. Theres no reason their transportation folks and our transportation folks need to be duplicating our efforts, he said. On its website, NACE of cials indicate the pur pose of the organization specically is to adv ance county engineering and management by providing a forum for exchange of ideas and information. Their goals are to im prove service to the public by inuencing national legislation affecting county tr ansportation and public works depart ments, as well as to improve relations and cooperation among county engineers and r elated agencies.

She was born on Aug. 11, 1923 in Lake Placid to Leon Lucius and Sallie Octavia (Hendry) Henderson. She was a homemaker and a farmer, and a member of First Baptist Church of Sebring for more than 40 years, being one of 11 persons who began the mission constituted as Whispering Pines Baptist Church. She served as the Womens Mission Union director at First Baptist Church and Whispering Pines Baptist Church, was a charter member of the Highlands County Genealogical Society, a member of Florida State Genealogical Society, a member of Florida Native Plant Society Sun Ridge Charter, and has been a lifelong resident of Highlands County.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to: Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home Sebring stephensonnelsonfh.comJohnson said it inspired her to re ect on The Creator and at the complexity of the universe, while Sebringbased Realtor Dawn Dell said its signi cant that Tuesdays lunar eclipse and three others in the next two years will fall on Jewish holy days. Dell believes those events, coupled with next weeks symmetrical arrangement of Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto known as the Grand Cardinal Cross heralds a time of change. The last time these things (all) happened was 2,000 years ago, Dell said. For Eric Christiansen, chair of the Natural Sciences Department at South Florida State College, the eclipse is a good reminder of how humans are lucky Earth has a relatively large moon to stabilize its rotation and make the planet habitable. The eclipse also a good recruitment tool for him. He regularly invites his astronomy students and the public every three weeks or once a month to Star Parties to peer through a telescope at a celestial event. Those who come to the parties often sign up for his astronomy class. Tuesdays blood-moon eclipse occurred between 3:45-4:20 a.m. Tuesday. The blood red color comes from the suns light being refracted through the thick edges of the Earths atmosphere and falling on the moon, Christiansen said. Three other lunar eclipses visible from North America are expected on Oct. 8, 2014; April 4, 2015, and Sept. 28, 2015. Between two and ve lunar eclipses may occur each year, he said, but are not always visible from the same spot on Earth. Astronomy helps determine how visible such events will be. De ned in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as the study of objects and matter outside the earths atmosphere and of their physical and chemical properties, astronomy is very heavy on math, Christiansen said, because its a branch of physics that measures the movement of solid objects and light. Astrology, by contrast, is de ned as the study of how positions and movements of stars and planets may in uence events and the lives and behavior of people on Earth. Dell said people have been watching the skies for eons to know when to plant and pointed out that the moons gravity in uences tides. If it can affect seawater, it can affect the water and energy in our bodies, she said. While she also has heard a lot of people say the Grand Cardinal Cross, upcoming meteor showers and lunar eclipses are a sign of the end of time, she doesnt believe that. Im not giving energy to that, Dell said. Its a time for rebirth, but with birth, theres pain. Christiansen does say the moons gravity profoundly affects tides and stabilizes Earths rotation, but he doesnt assign meaning to planetary movements or regular lunar or solar eclipses. Theres a lot of prophecy, but these objects have been moving since the beginning of creation, Christiansen said. Theres no scientific basis for that. The biggest effect he has seen celestial events have on human behavior is a reawakening of interest in the stars, which almost every person seems to have from a young age. Its a childhood fascination that they rekindle when they get older, Christiansen said.

And not a moment too soon. Nothing like waiting until the last four games to start playing the way were capable, head coach Carlos Falla said after his squad swept Mondays doubleheader from visiting Hillsborough. SFSC came into the contest with a 3-9 record in the Suncoast Confer ence, leaving them hanging out in the cellar. But they were still within reach of the nal playoff spot in the state tour nament, one game behind St. Petersburg at 4-8, and a game and a half out of third behind Hillsbor ough at 6-8. So Monday was their chance to make some noise, and that they did, powering their way to 5-2 and 7-0 wins over the Hawks. After scratching for two runs in the rst inning of the opener, the Panthers turned up the power as Caitlyn Lytle and Alexis Adams blasted home runs over the fence, with Paige Davis legging out an inside-the-park home run to provide for the winning margin. Again in the nightcap, it was a power parade the paved the way to a win. Lauren Harris smashed Lady Panthers power into playoff picture Dan Hoehne/News-SunMackenzie Hunt capped off Mondays sweep of Hillsborough with one of ve home runs the Panthers powered out on the night. SEE SFSC | A12 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK It has been a long season for rst-year head coach Brittany Spencer as she begins the task of turning around the Red Devil softball program. Im 23 but I think I now look like Im 43, she said Monday night, after her team saw its season come to an end with an 11-1 loss to Lake Placid in the District 9-4A tournament. The tournament, ofcially hosted by Frostproof, was supposed the see the higher seeded Lady Dragons play host to this opening-round contest. But a conict in a scheduling of events at Lake Placid High School saw it redirected to where the Dragons played at Avon Park, against the Lady Devils, as the home team. And it was the visitors who drew rst blood as patient eyes at the plate drew four walks in the top of the rst to plate the opening run. But the Dragons answered right back in the bottom half. With one out, Lahna Sedatol was hit by a pitch and came around to score on Annie Weber-Callahans double. Raveen Gobourne then ripped a triple to bring Weber-Callahan in and Holly Krett lofted a sacrice y to make it a 3-1 game. The second inning went by without a score and while the Devils threatened in the top of the third, relief pitcher Shannon Huber got out of it to maintain the slim lead. That lead grew a bit larger in the bottom of the third when Weber-Callahan beat out an ineld hit and Gobourne walked. The two moved up a base during Kretts at bat and then Weber-Callahan raced in when a pitch got away. Krett then laid down a successful squeeze bunt that got Gobourne in and pushed the lead to 5-1.

In one instance, umpires asked for a video review to check the ballsstrike count. Technology takes awhile to work, Bowman said during a panel discussion at the MLB Diversity Business Summit. I dont know if you ever bought a new car. You dont know how all that stuff works right away. And if you ever get a new phone, it takes you awhile to learn it. Were under 30 days old, and I know weve arrived because ESPN is already criticizing us. And it must be great to be perfect the way ESPN is. ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz declined comment. Boston manager John Farrell was ejected after a call was overturned during Sundays game against the Yankees, which gave New York an additional run in a game it went on to win 3-2. A day earlier, MLB admitted it incorrectly failed to overturn a call that was in favor of the Yankees and said it was because the replay room in New York did not immediately have access to some of the camera angles shown during broadcasts. Our concern was the length of the game, Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said, and clearly it hasnt affected that. Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts had a more parochial and playful view. Were two and two in challenges, so its clear to us the replay system only works about half the time, he said.MLB Internet head defends replay from criticismSFSC5,7HSC2,0

This Date In BaseballApril 16 1929 Clevelands Earl Averill became the rst American League player to hit a home run in his rst major league plate appearance. The Indians won the game 5-4 in 11 innings on Carl Linds double. 1935 Babe Ruth, 40, made a sensational National League debut in Boston. His single and homer off Carl Hubbell led the Braves over the Giants 4-2. 1940 Bob Feller of Cleveland defeated the Chicago White Sox 1-0 in the only opening day no-hitter in major league history. 1948 WGN-TV televised a baseball game for the rst time.

In total, he drove in eight runs in a 9-6 victory over the Seattle Mariners. 1997 The Chicago Cubs set the mark for worst start in National League history, making three more errors as they extended their losing streak to 12 with a 4-0 loss to the Colorado Rockies.

A12 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, April 16, 2014 www.newssun.com made it 6-1, but the Devil defense was doing its job and limited the Lake Placid scoring chances. It wasnt until the sixth that the Dragons opened it up and nished it off. Sedatol and Weber-Callahan started it with consecutive singles and Gobourne walked to load the bases. One out later, Breauna Corley ripped a long linedrive that one-hopped the left-eld fence for a bases-clearing double to make it 9-1. Huber reached on a bunt single, Corley came in on a wild pitch and a walk, hit batter and another walk later, Huber came in with the mercyrule run. The girls played really well tonight, Dragon head coach Alesia Cheshire said. They didnt give anything to us, but we hit the ball well when we needed to. And while it was a tough season for Spencer, it was one that has seen the program taking steps in the right direction. There were still some mental mistakes, but the effort was there, she said. The girls have made progress all season and are improving. But we just dont have a lot of experience and need to get stronger. She and her Lady Devils will work toward that in the offseason, while Lake Placids season continues for at least one more game. The team was slated to face McKeel at Frostproof Tuesday night in a tour nament seminal. We didnt play so well the last time we played them, Cheshire said. We stayed with them, for the most part, the rst time, so it should be interesting. NO DEALER FEES NO DEALER FEES SINCE 1931* PLUS TAX + TAG, W.A.C. CHRYSLER CAPITAL.

They then opened the lead up with ve in the bottom of the sixth. With one out, Kala Thompson singled to right with Lytle, Davis and Adams each drawing walks to bring Thompson in and keep the bases loaded. Kelly Olson then ripped one back up the middle that glanced off the pitchers mitt, was snared by the second baseman and thrown to rst for the out, though Lytle scored on the play to make it a 4-0 lead. Mackenzie Hunt then hit the big blow, blasting a three-run shot over the fence in right, putting the margin at 7-0 with just three outs left to go. And despite a single and double in the top of the seventh for the Hawks, those three outs soon came and put the Panthers back in the mix. Hillsboroughs confer ence schedule is done, with them sitting with a 6-10 record. St. Petersburg was slated to host rst-place Polk State Tuesday and play at second-seed State College of Florida Thursday to determine their nish, while SFSC nishes out their conference slate Thursday at Polk.

First, I got out some fr esh strawberries and while in my walkin I got a smell of fresh basil, so I de cided to use that as an ingr edient as well. I gathered up some extra virgin olive oil and white balsamic vinegar and headed to my food pro cessor. I washed my str aw berries and basil, then tr immed the stems and leaves off my berries and placed them in the pro cessor. I spun them until they w ere a smooth pure. After tasting the berries, I decided they needed to be a bit sweeter to stand up to the acid from the vin egar. I added some honey while the processor was r unning. Next, I gave my basil a rough chop with my knife and tossed it into the processor and let it spin for about one min ute. The av or of the straw berry next to the fresh basil was aw esome, so I knew I was onto some thing. I added the white balsamic vinegar which I generally use in salad dressings to keep from changing the color of the dressing. At this point, I stopped the processor and tasted it to see if the acid and sweetness had a nice balance. You will know if it doesnt by sharp bites on the sides of your tongue from the acid. Sometimes for fun I will ask one of my cooks to taste something that I am looking for that acid/sug ar balance in and just b y the look on their faces I know if it is right or not. I dont know about you, but it always makes me feel good inside when someone makes a smile after tasting some thing I have made. This r ecipe I have for you is with strawberries but you could do it with all kinds of fruit man goes will be ripe in about six w eeks and they make a great substitute for the strawberries.

CHEF sS C ORNERTim Spain DEAR ABBY: I have been in a long-distance relationship with Victor for several years. Recently I began to suspect he was cheating. What raised my suspicion was that I sud denly couldnt reach him on the w eekends. Usual ly we would Skype Sunday night for me, Monday mor ning for him. Last February when I visited him, I snooped in his phone spare me the condemnation. I found an email he had written to an old girlfriend in which he suggested they plan their next rendezvous. I plan on dumping him, but I dont know how to go about it. Ive always been bad at dumping peo ple. Should I write him a letter and confess that I snooped? My rst inclina tion is to disconnect completely and say nothing. I m afraid to confront him because he is ob viously a good liar. Im afr aid if I do, hell make me doubt the evidence ... trust me, hes that good! CHEATED ON IN L.A.DEAR CHEATED ON: Why any woman would stay with someone who is a practiced liar (that good) is beyond me. My advice is to disconnect from him and say nothing. It should be interesting to see how long it takes him to notice your absence. When he does which probably wont be on a weekend tell him the romance is over and refer ence the email he sent his for mer girlfriend. Expect him to go on the offensive and try to make you feel guilty for having checked his cellphone. Dont buy it, and dont relent. Just be glad you found out now. DEAR ABBY: I dont know if you have ad dressed the issue of women and breast augmentation from the standpoint of noticing the wor k done, but I am trying to nd a way to say I noticed without being crude or tacky. My wife works with a woman who recently had augmentation surgery, and we agree that the doc tor did a very nice job. According to my wife, the woman is not shy about discussing her surgery. I have known her for years, and were on friendly terms. We talk often and exchange hugs. How would I go about complimenting her on her new look? I dont want to say the wrong thing. Or should I just say nothing? ENJO YY S THE VIEW IN PHOENIXDEAR ENJOYS THE VIEW: All you need to say is, You look GREAT! and shell get the message.

By now, most of us know how important it is to get an adequate amount of dark leafy greens into our diets on a regular basis. And the best kind of dark leafy green to eat a lot of is any dark leafy green that belongs to the cruciferous family. Collard greens are one of those dark and leafy friends! Collard greens are a wonderful item to add to your veggie rotation. They are versatile, they taste good, and theyre one of the most nutritious vegetables you can eat: Blood health. Collard greens have a tremendous amount of chlorophyll in them. Chlorophyll is excellent for building blood in the human body. For this reason, juicing collard greens is excellent for anyone suffering from anemia or other disorders of the blood. Bone strength. Collards aid in the repair and development of bones. Cancer prevention. Collard greens have very high levels of antioxidants, lowering your risk of developing cancer. Cholesterol levels. Collards are high in folate, ber and vitamins A and C all nutrients that help level blood cholesterol levels. Dementia prevention and heart health. Collard greens contain high levels of folate which can lower levels of homocysteine. Homocysteine is believed to cause Alzheimers disease as well as stroke sand heart attacks. Skin health. Collard greens contain lutein which helps improve the elasticity and rmness of skin. Immunity. Vitamin C is found in abundance in collard greens and Vitamin C, of course, is wonderful for strengthening the immune system and ghting several diseases. Weight loss. The chlorophyll and nutrients found in collard greens help rev up your metabolism. Adding collard greens to your juice in the morning will help to melt that fat off your bod! Eye health. Collard greens contain carotenoids which are special antioxidants that protect your eyes from damage due to ultraviolet lights. At the market, look for collards with smooth rm leaves. You dont want to keep them around the kitchen for more than three days in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. My favorite way to eat collard greens is juiced raw. you can cook them as a side dish if you like but if you do choose this route, only steam them for a couple of minutes in a bit of water. That helps to keep their nutrients in tact. If you overcook collard greens you cook all the nutrition out of them and you end up with a mushy mess! A little warning before you go too crazy with the collards. Consume in moderation! Too much collard green juice can cause your thyroid to swell so limit your intake to about 3 servings of collard green juice per week. These greens also contain oxalic acid which should be avoided in anyone with a history of kidney disease.Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of Body Clutter and the Saving Dinner series.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 16, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | B5 Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Robert Moore from the American Legion Post 25 present ed Donald Elliott with a check for $1,050 to spon sor two veterans to attend the honor ight in M ay. The money was raised by the American Legion through donations from members. Moore said, Our Amer ican Legion Post lost 40 W orld War II veterans just this past year. It is impor tant to send World War II v eterans as soon as pos sible. This is a worthwhile cause and w e are honored to work with the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club to send two veterans. The Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club is sending eight veterans and guard ians on the honor ight this y ear. The inaugural Hon or Flight Tour took place in M ay 2005. Six small planes ew out of Spring eld, Ohio taking 12 W orld War II veterans on a visit to the memorial in Washington, DC. In August 2005, an ev er-expanding waiting list of v eterans led to the transition of commer cial airline carriers with the goal of accommo dating as many veterans as possible Partnering with HonorAir in Hender sonville, N.C., the Honor Flight Network was for med. In 2006, commercial ights were exclusively used due to the number of veterans on the waiting list and adverse weather conditions that prohib ited small aircraft from par ticipating on a regular schedule. Locally, another 300 veterans completed the journey during that year. The mission and ide als of the program began to spr ead across America. Other cities and states be came aware of the efforts and wor king relationships were fostered with dedi cated community leaders in sev eral states. Jeff Miller in Hender sonville, N.C., led the expansion into areas not ser viced by direct com mercial ights to the W ashington, D.C. area. He accomplished what was thought to be impossible, organizing and obtaining funding to y an entire commercial jet lled with local area veterans to visit the monument. Honor Flight Network is also paying tribute to Americas other heroes who served during the Korean Conict. They, too, have given so much and its time they are shown that their efforts are not forgotten.Lake Placid Rotarians, Legion members help fund honor flights Courtesy photoRobert Moore (left), American Legion Post 25, accepts a check from Donald Elliott, past president, Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club.

For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of potential happiness. FRIENDS & N NEIGHBORS I had to put my 3-pound, 6-year-old Maltese to sleep on Jan 17, 2013. Animal lovers know what I mean when I say I went into a deep mourning and depres sion. M y extreme love for that dog was because af ter being dogless for a few y ears I nally con vinced my husband it was time for another dog. Our agreement was that it would be a dog I could carry with me and not leave with him when I went gallivanting. So began my search for a tiny Maltese. Why that breed? Because when I was 3 years old, my mother gave my Maltese dog away. She said it bit me. I searched the pounds and got online for res cue dogs and then for local br eeders. I found the dog I wanted and it was cheap, but it was in South America. Then I found the perfect dog, but it was in Brooklyn. An excuse to go to Long Island to visit my son, who offered to buy it for me. He wasnt even put off by the price of $1,100. So I prepared. I got my ticket to New York, took along my underseat dog carrying case, and notes from two doctors that I needed the ani mal to accompany me back to F lorida to allevi ate my fear of ying. You couldn t put a tiny pup py in the cold baggage compar tment. I would have it right under the seat with me. I know, I know. This is the story about a cat. Im getting to it, but I just have to tell you this aside rst. Before we went to Brooklyn to the pet shop, my son cau tioned me not to ooh and aaah and lo ve the dog right away. It would be a poor bargaining chip to want the dog. Be reserved. So when they brought the dog in and put her on the oor, Mathew fell down on the foor next to her and killed his bargain ing chip. B ack to the cat. A dear friend who has multiple dogs and cats had empathy for my de spair and made me an offer I couldn t refuse. I could take her 2-yearold Siamese cat that had been spade and had a chip (not on her shoul der ... but for identication). If I wanted to return her, I could and if I r eturned her and wanted her back, I could do that too. So I brought Lilly home with me. Another aside: When I was little I would bring home any stray cat or dog. Actually they fol lowed me, was my excuse. The cats never stay ed. Occasionally a dog or even two would. I know. This is the sto ry about the cat. S o Lily came home with me in the dog car ry case. Diana gave me a starter kit with every thing I would need except a littler box, which I pr epared. I was skeptical that the cat would nd it in a strange place but she did ... she also found my bed. Then started the rou tine of Where is the cat? I ts not like a dog that you call and teach him to come. She found places to hide I never knew we had. She didnt come, sit or stay. Peculiarly, my hus band who ignored the dog, likes her Where is the Dog, he asks. Both of us attribute doglike qualities to the cat, which she doesnt have. So, of course, we are dis appointed. It is so unfair to us But after 10 months of residence, she is still do ing something new every so often. She never ceases to amaz e me. We went away for a week end and left her at dear D r. Giassandander. I took one of her pillows (she wont sleep in the bed I provided) along from a chair she favored and wrapped my pants around it for familiar ity. She wouldnt come off it or out of the cage Dr. Gissandander had to physically take her out to check on her. She doesnt play with toys. I brought a number of attractive objects for her, but her best toy is a large paper shopping bag in which she ghts cat demons. She can tell time. When it is supper time she meows and paces between the refrigerator and her dish. If you un derstand sign language she is v ery explicit.
