Kim Pascoe spent last Friday visiting downtown businesses to invite them to Paint the Town Purple. At least 35 businesses have agreed to do just that by this Friday. Pascoe, who is a member of the Avon Park Relay for Life Committee, said the businesses will decorate their storefronts or their ofces in purple to help draw attention to the May 2-3 Relay for Life. Not only will they be decorated, but each participating business on Main Street will also have hidden at least one pair of purple sneakers inside to be counted by visitors. Visitors can stop by the stores/of ces along Main Street to count the number of sneakers and turn their guessed number in the night of Relay. There will be one lucky winner. There will also be a winner of the Best Decorated Workplace. Relay participants and visitors will be able to vote on the decorated businesses the night of the event. A winner will be named before the event is over at 6 a.m. May 3. Pascoe warns, however, that those visitors counting sneakers may want to pay close attention as some businesses/of ces may Avon Park is painting the town purple to support annual Relay for Life May 2-3 Courtesy illustrationEach participating business on Main Street will have hidden at least one pair of purple sneakers inside to be counted by visitors.

Thomas was found in the midst of a crowd at the Highway Park Caf, an unmarked business near the corner of Vision Street and Crestmore Street, said Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton. Deputies gave him rst aid and called for an ambulance, but he died from his injuries at Florida Hospital Lake Placid. Benton said deputies reported seeing two groups arguing at the scene: People from Lake Placid and people from Moore Haven, and are welcoming leads in the case.

The list was compiled by writers for www.citiesjournal.com. Its hard to rank the best small Florida towns, since everyone puts a different priority on the aspects they most appreciate, the article points out. Access to health care, proximity to the beach, average climate, nearness of large cities and airports, as well as cultural opportunities were listed as some of the possible reasons that localities were selected.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 23, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A3 BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Mary Musselman has formally been ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluations. The order came from Circuit Court Judge William Sites on Monday as part of a pre-trial hearing that had been postponed from last week. The 81-year-old Sebring woman has been kept in a secure adult congregate living facility following her release on bond from the Highlands County Jail on charges that she violated a court order to cease and desist from feeding wild bears. Sites appointed a pair of psychologists to make the determination as to whether or not Musselman is competent to stand trial. Her attorney, William Fletcher, previously had argued that his client may have mental issues. She is confused there is no question about that, Fletcher argued. Reportedly, two Bartow psychologists have been selected for the task Dr. William Kremper and Dr. Traci Hartig. There is no indication as to whether either of them have been asked or have accepted the case. After their rulings, the State Attorneys Of ce will decide whether or not to pursue the case against Musselman. A status hearing has been set for June 11. In the meantime, Fletcher has announced he plans to le a motion to withdraw Musselmans pleas issued in the misdemeanor case, which happened before he became involved in the issue. If we show that she was not competent to enter a plea, we can get that set aside, he said. Fletcher also indicated that arrangements have been established so that whatever happens in the felony case also will be binding on the misdemeanor action. Theres no reason to try this twice, he said. Musselman was arrested Jan. 29 after an agent from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission found bowls of corn and birdseed scattered about the property of her home on Kenilworth Boulevard despite a court order prohibiting her from feeding animals. She allegedly kicked at the arresting of cers and threatened to shoot the FWC agent if she came on the property again. Meanwhile, of cials of the FWC report they have had to euthanize yet another bear Monday in Hernando County. This bear had absolutely no fear of humans and had been a nuisance in the area for some time, said FWC spokesman Gary Morse. A lady apparently felt threatened by it as she was getting into her car and it approached her.

The document outlining the 2012-2013 scal year was released last week by the Highlands County Clerk of Courts Of ce. The eighth annual analysis is designed to allow citizens to have a better understanding of where the government gets the money it spends, as well as how those dollars are managed. Because such a study cannot be completed until the end of a scal year, the report deals with the last budget cycle. It was compiled from the 258page Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Among the major accomplishments listed in the 27-page analysis are the 2012 Public Radio System upgrade that went live in September. Also listed was work on Sebring Parkway Phase II. Construction of the north portion of the roadway between North Ridgewood Drive and Youth Care Lane was nished in that budget year. The report also gives a listing of all county departments, as well as details on the ve constitutional of ces including the Clerk of Courts, Property Appraisers Of ce, Tax Collectors Of ce, Supervisor of Elections Ofce and Sheriffs Of ce. Operations at the Highlands County land ll and asphalt plant are outlined as well. To help in comprehending the fact-rich document, there is a list of de nitions of different kinds of governmental nancial activities ranging from dedicated and restricted funds to program and general revenues, so readers may better understand how their elected of cials spend the money. That is followed by a series of graphs and pie charts depicting revenues and expenses for that scal year as well as where general fund budget monies were allocated. For instance, only 55.4 percent of the money taken in by government came directly from ad valorem or property taxes. While nearly half of all money collected from taxes, fees, grants and other sources was spent on public safety (49.7 percent). Also depicted was the range of property tax assessments over the past decade, the principal property tax payers in the county as well as other nancial data such as actual property values compared to taxable property values. The report may be viewed at www.hcclerk.org.Clerk releases Popular report on countys finances This graphic from the Popular Annual Financial Report breaks down where the countys revenue comes from 55.4 percent is from taxes.

We reserve our admiration for those individuals who prove they truly want to serve. Like the hundreds of volunteers who give back to their fellow man in dozens of ways working in our hospitals, schools and church missions; delivering meals to the house-bound; manning a food pantry; driving veterans to doctor appointments. From Scout leaders to special event staffers to volunteers at thrift stores, these are the citizens who enhance our community. Every one of these generous people deserves our respect and gratitude, yet there is a group of volunteers who go a step farther who often have to put family second and their lives in harms way. Were referring to volunteer re ghters, who make tremendous sacri ces without pay or promise. According to Highlands County Emergency Management, there are currently 10 volunteer departments serving the county. The number of volunteer reghters uctuates between 200 and 250 and they save the county almost $40 million in salaries and bene ts alone. While volunteers do not have to pay for their training, they must take a statemandated, 246-hour course and participate in continuing education. And they have to be willing at a moments notice and at any time of day or night to drop everything, leave their regular jobs or the family dinner table, and rush toward the ames. And they have to be willing do all that for free. Tuesday night, county commissioners honored volunteer re ghters in a special nighttime meeting. We are proud to join in recognizing these extraordinary men and women of courage and heart. We thank them for their service. They do more than just talk a good game. They stand up and deliver.Volunteer firefighters worthy of honorBraha Sebring, LLC, is the company behind the Swamp Hammock Outdoor Recreation Club, which is trying to bring mud bogging to Highlands County. This will include monster pick up trucks, ATVs and motorcycle racing. Our local media have reported that Braha Sebring is trying to get a Temporary Use Permit from the Highlands County Zoning Department. I dont believe that the media has reported that their rst priority is a permit from the South Florida Water Management District. Perhaps with the water management permit, everything else would fall into place. Highlands Audubon believes that the SFWMD application for Swamp Hammock doesnt do justice to the area, the environment, or the wildlife. Mud bogging uses huge amounts of water in a brief period, certainly a problem during a drought. Accidents with ruptured gas tanks, with fuel, oil and antifreeze leaking out, and working their way to the aquifer and Fisheating Creek would be inevitable. And it is one of the few recharge areas for the Floridan Aquifer. The Braha Sebring application pans local wildlife, saying that ranching has left the area mostly pasture. The area is actually corridor for the Florida panther and for black bears. The property is about a mile from Blue Head Ranch, where government has spent millions on conservation easements. We believe that Florida sandhill cranes are nesting in this area; one reason to be concerned about wetlands. The Florida sandhill crane has the status of Threatened under Florida law, and does not migrate, but nests in Florida. Audubon members have seen white pelicans on the Skipper Ranch, next door to Swamp Hammock. It is unusual to see white pelicans in Highlands County. People live here for years without seeing one, let alone a ock. Wild birds are attracted to the area and make it a stopping place. Is pasture worthless to birds? Audubon members have seen burrowing owls with holes in cow pastures. They not only visit but nest there, living with domestic cattle. The application says that the wetlands on the property provide no downstream bene ts. They are saying that since these wetlands dont ow into a creek, they are almost useless. On the contrary, the Environmental Protection Agency tells us that wetlands without an obvious surface water connection store water and recharge the aquifer. The EPA website goes on to give the example of 46 billion gallons of water in South Carolina, stored in wetlands without a surface connection. According to the EPA, wetlands, including those that arent connected to the river network, are among the most biologically diverse and productive ecosystems in the world. Migratory birds, which depend on healthy wetlands, are hunted by 2.3 million people a year, who spend more than $1.3 billion doing it. Over a third of endangered and threatened species are dependent on wetlands, and half make use of wetlands. About half of North American bird species live in or use wetlands. These wetlands occupy only 5 percent of the land in the United States, but 31 percent of our plant species grow there. The presence of such important wetlands and the certainty of gasoline pollution are especially important since this part of Highlands County is an area of high recharge for the Floridan aquifer. This is from Florida Geological Surveys and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Are small wetlands that do not feed into a creek of value to Florida sandhill cranes? Sandhill cranes usually do nest in small marshes and other isolated wetlands. They build their nests from cattails, bulrushes and other plants that are abundant in these small wetlands. The evidence is overwhelming that impairing the impounded wetlands on the property with mud bog activity will have a signi cant negative effect on wildlife. Florida sandhill cranes, owls, Florida panthers, black bears, gopher tortoise and other wildlife will be driven away by the huge amount of noise generated by mud bogging events. Domestic cattle and horses will also be affected. The Highlands County Audubon Society urges the South Florida Water Management District to protect the people of Florida and its environment by denying this permit.Robert Hummel is president of the Highlands County Audubon Society.

OBITUARIES BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Mother nature provided a perfect day for a par k dedication Tuesday morning may be because it was also Ear th Day. Sadie Kahn Park in downtown Sebring was of cially dedicated after almost two years of renovations to the building-sized open space on Ridgewood Drive, between the vacant Nan-Cess-O-Wee Hotel and Lindas Books. On July 9, 2012 the CRA Board approved $30,305 for the beautication proj ect of Sadie Kahn park. The pr oject remained contingent upon the property being deeded to the city and an agreement approved by both the Se bring city council and the K ahn family. One year later, on April 22, 2013, Marvin Kahn re quested additional funding from the CRA board for the pr oject. CRA board approved $50,000 total for the Sadie Kahn Park proj ect. The property remains in a deed to the city The park was rede signed and new development plans were created last summer. Designer K en Triester created the beautiful mural as well as the conceptual visual art throughout the park. Landscape architect Chad Clouser followed Triesters design concept to create what will be a lush, tranquil setting for residents and visitors to enjoy. Chad and Ken did a re ally amazing job with all of this , said CRA Director Robin Hinote. The park features a mu ral of Sebring pioneer Sadie Kahn along with a PVC pipe sculptur e. City Administrator Scott Noethlich revealed that another piece of the park would be on its way in the near future. Ken is going to be add ing a fountain sometime in the futur e. Its not just going to be a regular foun tain, hes designing it to go along with the theme of the entire park, said No ethlich. Its beautiful here alr eady. Once that gets in here, the grass gets grow ing in a bit and the bamboo grows up, itll be really beautiful. M ayor John Shoop read a proclamation at the cer emony dedicating the par k as a part of the Earth Day celebration. This helps in preserv ing the earth and the environment. The city of Sebring keeps continuing and impr oving the pres ervation of Earth by going abo ve and beyond, said Shoop. The conservation and protection of our nat ural and cultural resources has always been impor tant. I encourage the city to pr eserve and protect this.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.Sadie Khan Park dedicated on Earth Daycar endurance race held here in the third week in March each year. If ones goal is to en joy the Florida sun far fr om the hassle of tour ists and beaches, Sebring is the per fect choice, they write. The article points to the citys histor ic downtown area, calling it bucolic and cites a number of what ar e termed modest, holi day-specic events held thr oughout the year. The article also claims that long-time residents boast of the absence of any interstates or major highways. They like the fact this serves as some thing of a buffer against the tour ists and develop ment that have changed so much of the tr aditional Florida environment. Greater Sebring Cham ber of Commerce Executive Director Liz Barber was pleased about the designation. I always knew Sebring is a great place to live, work and play, she said. Its great to see that were also being recognized by others. Ranking number one in the survey was Key West, followed by Boni ta Springs. Rounding out the Top Five were Key Largo and Destin. RANKING F rR O m M pa PA G e E A1 B yY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID A local man allegedly pushed a deputy and slammed his arm in a door during a foot chase in December. Now, Akua Travon Samu els, 26, of 1525 Buck Street in Lake P lacid is facing charges of assault and bat tery on a law enforcement ofcer Samuels is also facing charges of resisting an of cer with violence, possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis and posses sion of drug equipment. The char ges were led on Monday, in reference to an incident that took place on Dec. 28, 2013. A Highlands County Sher iffs deputy reported seeing Samuels at 7:07 / p.m. that day in H ighway Park, in the area of Vision Street and Crestmore Avenue, standing near the inter section. S amuels had two out standing warrants with the H ighlands County Sher iffs Ofce, and as soon as S amuels saw the deputy, he tried to hide. As soon as the depu ty got out of his car, Samuels began to run east on V ision Street. The depu ty chased him to the rear of a boar ding house where Samuels had climbed some stairs and attempted to get in through a door. The deputy grabbed Samuels by his arm and told him he was under ar rest, but Samuels pushed the deputy s chest and broke through the door. When the deputy tried to follow, Samuels closed the door on his left arm. They struggled for a while and they Samu els let go of the door and r an through the building and out the front, with the deputy in pursuit. Outside the building, other dep uties had found and apprehended Samuels, reports said. On searching him, they found a foot ball-shaped grinder used for gr inding cannabis, and found residue inside that eld-tested positive for the drug, reports said. When deputies arrived at the Highlands Coun ty Jail, Samuels had his ey es closed and his neck wrapped in his seat belt. Several tests by deputies and then emergency med ical personnel conrmed S amuels was conscious, reports said, but to be safe, they transported him to Highlands Regional Medi cal Center. O n the way there, re ports said, Samuels became violent, and while both deputies and emer gency medical technicians w ere holding him, he al legedly attempted to bite one of the EMT s, reports said. One of the depu ties stationed with Samuels at the hospital reported that Samuels was found to hav e both marijuana and cocaine in his blood stream at the time.Man charged with battery on deputy B yY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID A local man is facing a child cr uelty charge after three people saw him hit a 10-year-old boy on the side of his face with a closed st. Witnesses also reported that he beat the boy by hitting him several more times after he fell to the ground, then picking him up and shaking him. Carlos Earl Pyatt Jr., 27, of Lake Placid refused to give a full statement to Lake Placid police on Monday without an attor ney present. He did make some statements but those were redacted from arrest reports. The ofcer also noted in arrest reports that Py att gave conicting statements to him and to the Child P rotective Services ofcer. Pyatt was charged with cruelty toward a child/ abuse without great harm, and taken to the Highlands County Jail where he was being held in lieu of $15,000 bond. During the investi gation, police attempted to speak with the boy, but Pyatt would not al low ofcers to speak with him alone, of ten speaking when the child spoke reports said. Eventually, Pyatt al lowed another adult to stand with the child dur ing questioning. A ccording to arrest re ports, the boy told police that Pyatt had hit him on the left side of his face with an open-hand ed slap. The ofcer observed that the boys left ear was r ed and warm to the touch, reports said. The ofcer also saw scratches on the under portion of his left arm, re ports said. The boy said he had gotten them two or three days ago, but the ofcer reported that they looked fresh and consis tent with the child being gr abbed with force.Lake Placid man charged with child cruelty P YAYA TT Photo by II an BelangerLocal vocalist and winner of the American Idol Experience at Disney Cammie Lester presents Kevin Roberts, CE O O of Champion for Children Foundation, with a $5,000 check during a benet concert headlined by the local up and coming artist.

Law enfor cement has had problems with the street parties that fol low Highway Parks annual family-oriented Easter S unday celebrations, Ben ton said. The afternoon and ev ening casual block parties have included cus tomized car gatherings and dance music, but hav e also included public drink ing as the events wore on into late night. The S heriffs Ofce rst became aware of the events approximately ve years ago, she said, and such parties have been heavily advertised, re ferring to Highway Park and the ev ent as Hush mouth Flawda. While the car sho w has fallen by the wayside in the last couple of years, public drinking has not. I took a lot of heat be cause it was advertised har d everywhere, Benton said. People from all over came to it. Her concerns original ly stemmed from a shooting death at a similar event y ears ago in Clewiston, where the local sheriff had to call her department for reinforcements. Benton said her response in High way Park was to set up a command post and hav e deputies patrol the area, similar to handling secu rity at the annual 12 Hours of S ebring race. This year, however, the Highway Park event had no high-prole advertis ing, so Benton did not set up a command post. S he said she assigned two dep uties on overtime to patrol close to H ighway Park. They were the rst to ar rive when the call came in at 2 / p.m. about the shoot ing, she said. B enton said her depart ment has tried to get organizers to apply for permission from the Highlands C ounty Commission to close the streets often blocked by cars, people and vendors. Such per mits allow law enforcement, re departments and EMS to make a pub lic safety plan for injuries, r es or crimes. Plus, the permit plan also helps law enforcement provide safe ty at an event. Weve tried to get them to do it correctly and close the street, Benton said. (They) have not ever complied with county re quirements to do it. F inding out who is in charge of each years event is also difcult, Benton said, because that per son or group changes each y ear. Mondays early morning event where the shooting took place was an after-after-party loose ly organized by Antario Clar k, a.k.a. T-Black, to promote a movie called Risk and scheduled for 2-6 / a.m. He didnt promote the event as heavily as his pre decessors, she said. SHOT FROM PAGE A A 1combination of contract changes and county bud get issues. The soonest they would have been able to have had an event would not have been until June and, of course, a lot of our winter residents would have been gone by then, Diefendorf said. So we just felt like it would be best to wait until fall. It will be the rst time since 1990 the collection event will not be conduct ed in the spring. The collection event is designed to make r esidents aware of the countys collection services and to provide for proper and safe disposal of various chemicals. Citizens traditional ly drop off things such as used motor oil, old paint cans, household chemi cals, old herbicides and pesticides as w ell as bro ken electronics and other such material that ofcials want to keep out of the landll. A two-man cr ew from the Massachusetts-based rm Clean Harbors al ready comes in on an asneeded basis to do socalled shed clean-outs at the countys recycling plant on Arbuckle Creek Road. They then collect and dispose of the mate rials taken in there during r egular weekly business hours. Diefendorf said that is a more frequent, but less expensive process. The recycling is open every day from 7 / a.m. to 3:30 / p.m., Diefendorf said. People drop those kinds of things off and when our shed gets full we call them. In the past, there have been regular hazardous material collection events in the spring and in the fall. The spring clean-up traditionally had been the larger of the two. We use Clean Harbors for those too, but they have a much bigger crew that comes in for those, Diefendorf explained. The collections began in 1990 as a way not only to keep such materials out of the landll but also to cut down on illegal dumping in various areas through out the county. R ecords indicate that over the past ve years the county had taken in more than 150 tons of electron ics waste alone. WASTE FROM PAGE A A 1have only one sneaker and others may have mor e than one.

BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING A man has been charged with aggravated assault and ring a weapon into a dwelling in connection with a domestic dispute on Sunday. In an effort to protect the identity of the vic tim, the News-Sun is withholding the name of the 74-year-old sus pect, who was arrested after police arrived at his home and found him distraught and holding a handgun while a woman was locked in the bath room. The exact addr ess was redacted from reports, but witnesses reported to the News-Sun that the house was on Evange line Avenue in northeast S ebring. The incident began at 10 / a.m. Sunday, accord ing to arrest reports. The female victim had r e turned from church and the suspect star ted an argument, accusing her of having sex with her priest. She told ofcers that she tried to tell him he was wrong, but he wouldnt listen to her. She told police that the suspect had done this on several occasions and ignored previous at tempts to reason with him, r eports said. The woman said ar guing continued for an hour or mor e, occasion ally calming down, but the suspect ev entually grabbed a dinner plate and threw it on the oor of the kitchen, breaking it into several pieces, re ports said, prompting her to lock herself in the bathroom. The suspect tried to get in, yelling and pounding on the door, she told ofcers, and then she eventually heard what sounded like a gun being red just outside the door. How ever, she did not come out until police arr ived, reports said. Four ofcers Ste phen Williams, Paul Deshazo, Rick Little and B randon Low arrived on scene. Little, Low and Williams took up posi tions around the house while D eshazo knocked on the interior garage door and identied them as police.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 23, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A9 SPORTsS BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK It may be too little, too late, but the South Florida State College Panthers arent going into hibernation just yet, having topped State College of Florida by a 4-2 score Saturday and holding on against Hillsborough Monday in an 8-6 win. It was disappointing to have lost to St. Pete and miss the opportunity for postseason play, head coach Rick Hitt said. But the guys bounced back and played hard. They want to nish the season playing well. Juan Terron and Brad Burdett combined to hold the Manatees down in Saturdays win and Tyler Bender got the win on the mound Monday night. With the pair of victories, the Panthers helped keep the Suncoast Confer ence standings jumbled up for postseason seedings. Polk State has the top seed locked down with its 21-5 record, but after that, no team is currently over, or even at .500. State College currently BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Monday nights umpiring crew seemed determined to make things more difcult on the opening night of the District 9-4A Baseball Tournament at Head Field. They started by inexplicably banning all media from the both the dugout and designated photography area, and nished off the night by allowing for an extra out in what could have been a massive reversal of fortune. But the photographers and Lake Placid both per severed, though the results might not have been quite as well polished, in the Green Dragons 7-4 win over Frostproof. Staff ace Tyler Carr toed the rubber for Lake Placid and worked through a one-two-three rst, and then helped his own cause in knocking in the opening run in the bottom of the frame. Isaiah Velasquez drew a walk to start it, moved to second on Alex Millers sacrice bunt and came around to score when Carr ripped a single through the right side. Carr then worked around a lead-off walk in the top of the second, striking out two, and seemed to be settling into his usual command. Laine Daum helped pad the lead in the third, with a two-run single, and Carr scored another on a Justin LaRosa ground out to push it to a 4-0 game. But Carr never did quite nd his rhythm and an RBI double in the top of the fourth made it 4-1, with another Bulldog score in the fth cutting the lead in half. I dont know what it was, but I didnt have command tonight at all, Carr would say afterward. But I tried to battle and just pitched to contact. Which came in handy in the sixth, when Frostproof had runners at second and third with one out. But Carr got the contact he needed with consecutive ground outs. The offense, with some lax Bulldog defense, then seemed to put it away in the bottom of the sixth. Jacob Cram drew a walk to lead it off and on an er rant pick-off throw, raced all the way to third. Then, another pick-off attempt sailed high and Cram came in. Just Mason then took a walk as well and was moved to second on a perfectly placed sacrice bunt from Sam WeberCallahan. RIK STEVENS STEVE PEOPLESAssociated PressBOSTON Unnished business. Deance. Hope, strength and resilience. They used differ ent words but the meaning was the same for thousands of people who were stopped by twin bombings at last years Boston Marathon and came back this year to nish what they started. The 118th running of the storied race from Hopkinton to Boston was run under the long and still-sharp shadow of the 117th, which turned tragic when two bombs exploded near the nish line, killing three people, injuring more than 260 and searing the day into a city with a long memory. On this marathon Monday, there was no choice but to remember, reect and even confront the past, but the athletes found it easier and more fun to celebrate. Jeff Glasbrenner said he returned to Boston for some unnished business after being forced to stop at mile 25.9 last year following the bombing. I felt like those two bad guys stopped a lot of people from going after their dreams. I needed to come back, said Glasbrenner, 41, who runs with a prosthetic right leg after losing part of his leg in a childhood farming accident. It was the most amazing thing crossing that nish line, he said moments after he completed the race with two other amputees, all from Arkansas. But it wasnt for us. It was for all these people out here. A total of 35,755 athletes were registered to run, the second-largest eld in its history, with many coming to show support for the city and its signature sporting event. Boston Strong the unofcial slogan adopted after the terrorist attack was everywhere, from the quiet suburban starting line in Hopkinton, through the sound tunnel created by the Wellesley College student body, up fabled Heartbreak Hill and nally down Boylston Street to the nish, where the bombs went off. Lee Ann Yanni, whose left leg was badly injured in the bombing, said she could feel the energy of the crowd pushing her to the nish. It was really emotional crossing the nish line, she said. We got our nish line back. Thats all that mattered. The elite racers gave the crowd a reason to cheer, too. American Meb Keizighi won the mens title in 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds, the rst Amer ican man to break the tape since 1983. Keizighi had the names of last years victims written in black marker on the corners of his race bib. At 2:49 / p.m., the mo ment the bombs went off a year ago, there was a moment of silence followed by a swelling cheer that chased runners toward the nish, rising in a wave as it got closer to the blue and gold line that marks the end of the race.Dash and Dye results PAGE A12Panthers make it two in a row Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Tyler Bender got Mondays win on the mound for the Panthers.SFSC8HSC6They want to finish the season playing well.Rick Hitt SFSC head coachSEE SFSC | A12Green Dragons advance Dan Hoehne/News-SunJacob Cram makes a running reach to grab this pop y for an out Monday night in Lake Placids district tourna ment win. SEE LP | A12LAKE PLACID7FROSTPROOF41 year after bombs, Boston Marathon a celebration TIM REYNOLDSAP Basketball WriterMIAMI Dwyane Wade is not planning on missing any more games this season, and that means life on the Miami Heat equipment room staff is going to get considerably more demanding. They dont mind. Its a small price when a team is looking for a third straight title. Wade keeps the equipment guys busy on game days: He needs at least one pair of new sneakers to start games, a backup pair ready just in case, and usually two full sets of uniforms because his pen chant for producing tons of sweat often leads to ingame wardrobe changes. Nobody complains, because everyone around the team knows the Heat are signicantly better when Wade is playing. Such was the case Sunday, when Wade scored 23 points and the Heat won Game 1 of their Eastern Conference rst-round series against Charlotte. Wade made 10 of 16 shots, added ve assists, played 34 minutes and was part of a Heat win for the rst time in a month. He downplayed it all afterward, but being on the court, in a win, without setbacks was an extremely positive sign for the Heat guard. Just a natural day, didnt have to think too much, Wade said. Just was play ing and making reads. Game 2 of the best-ofseven series is tonight in Miami. The Heat had no for mal practice on Monday, though that hardly means it was a day off. When Wade doesnt play, hes often working harder than when he is on the oor, between treatments and conditioning and weightlifting and all the things he needs to keep an edge. After he strained his hamstring March 26, Wade wanted to play a few days later. The team kept him out longer than he hoped or wanted but the end re sult was that he was fully healthy for the start of the postseason, which was the biggest key to Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. We had to see certain things before we could clear him, Spoelstra said. And nobody wanted a setback. Not now.Wade looks like himself as Heat top Bobcats MCT photo Spectators watch runners during the 118th Boston Marathon in Boston, Monday, April 21.

Central Florida StridersDash and Dye Age Group Results sits in second at 12-13, with Hillsborough next at 12-14 and St. Petes at 1113. And South Florida will have more to say about the seedings before the season is done, as in addition to Fridays home date against Polk, the Panthers still have two left against St. Petersburg. SFSC FROM PAGE A9 Dan Hoehne/News-SunRodney Forbes races toward third for a third-inning triple Monday and would soon score the rst run in SFSCs 8-6 win over Hillsborough.Paul Cantwell reached on an error, putting runners on the corners, which lead to a double steal and brought Mason in. They gave us some, but we were also forcing the action, head coach D.W. Daum said. We were having good at bats, getting on base and running the bases well. Velasquez then sent a bunt up the rst-base line that scored Cantwell and make it a 7-2 lead with just three outs to go. But the Bulldogs, and the umpiring crew, wouldnt let it be quite that easy. After Carr struck out the rst batter of the inning, two singles sandwiched a walk to bring a run in and bring Cantwell on in relief. A hit batter then loaded the bases, but a hard grounder to rst was snared by Cram and thrown home to get a force for the second out. The rst pitch to the next batter was a called strike, though it wasnt put up on the scoreboard. The count then went to an actual 3-2, though the scoreboard was showing 3-1. A swinging strike caused a moment of pause, before Daum alerted the home plate umpire that it was, in fact, strike three. He looked at his clicker and said that it was, Daum said. The call was then made for the out, which caused some protest from the Frostproof side of the eld. After a consultation with the rest of the umpiring crew, the call was inexplicably reversed with the batter stepping back into the box. The next pitch was ball four, forcing in a run and bringing the potential winning run to the plate. But Cantwell settled in and took care of business, striking out the next batter and moving the Dragons on in the tour nament. That was kind of crazy there and I really dont understand what they did, Daum said. But these kids did what they had to do. Tyler didnt have his best stuff, but he battled through and the defense was strong behind him. The tournament continued Tuesday night with Mulberry and McKeel playing the ear ly game and Lake Placid squaring off with topseed Avon Park. See Fridays News-Sun for a recap of the results.

O ur marriage may not be perfect, but its quite good. My dilemma is this: My husband keeps track of every time we have sex and has a personal goal of 100 times a year. In 2013, he informed me that wed had sex only 76 times, and that was not adequate for him. He was quite upset about it. Do you think track ing your sex life is nor mal, and what do you think about a couple mar ried for 30-plus years having sex 76 times in a year? I s that normal? Also, keep in mind that he travels for business and is gone about 60 days a year. PRESSUREDDEAR PRESSURED: Your husband sounds like a college student who is striving to get 100 notch es on his belt. Rather than obsess about the num ber of times you have had sex, the quality of the ex perience should be more impor tant. Fifty GREAT times a year would be bet ter than 100 so-so times, one would think. And no I do not think your hus bands preoccupation is normal whatever nor mal is these days. DEAR ABBY : After six years of unsuccessful fer tility work, my husband and I w ere forced to give up. Last summer his sister offered to be a surrogate for us, and well use a do nor egg since I have none. W e have told only a few people. Were having an em bryo transfer next week and thought w ed wait un til after the rst trimester to announce. But what is the proper way to do it when its not actually I who is expecting? And is there etiquette for having a baby shower in this situ ation? W ere excited and proud of this opportunity, but it takes a lot of explaining for people to understand and not be judgmental. This is the closest well ever get to experiencing pregnancy, and I want to enjoy it to the fullest. MODERN MOM-TO-BE IN WASHINGTONDEAR MOM-TO-BE: Congratulations on your pregnancy. Because it takes explaining, I recom mend you share the happy news with y our family and close friends by telling them in person. That way, you can answer any ques tions they may have directly. When you want the world to know, you may decide to send a mass email or post photos on the Internet. As to having a baby shower because this is a happy event you are cel ebrating and you will need things for the bab y, Im sure a friend will want to host one for you. Be sure to include your sister-inlaw if she would like to at tend. DEAR ABBY : My 18-year-old granddaugh ter is seeing a 30-year-old man. What can I say to let her know he is way too old for her? I dont want her to hate me. LOVING GRANDMA IN FLORIDADEAR LOVING GRANDMA: I dont think that telling your granddaughter the man is too old for her would be a good idea be cause it would imply that she is too y oung, and no 18-year-old wants to hear that. Tell her instead that you think she would have a lot more in common with someone closer to her age. This is particular ly true if she is still in high school.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil lips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Lauren and I spent a chilly afternoon on the golf course with some friends. While play ing, one of our friends said something about gumbo and that got me thinking. My rst job away from home was in 1992 at the Mount Washing Hotel in Bretton Woods, N.H. I was 18 and worked as a waiter in the main dining room, which seats 1,000 guests. After that sum mer, I went to New Or leans and worked at a r estaurant called Alex Pa touts Louisiana Dining R oom. We served classic creole cuisine on an up scale level. I n that restaurant I was a captain and worked with three other wait ers as a four-person ser vice team. The captain handled taking the or ders and serving wine while the fr ont waiter did all the table-side services and the back waiter and server assistant made sure that the tables were cleared and prepared for the next seating. While working there, I really enjoyed that type of cuisine and especial ly liked the gumbo. It was a fav orite mid-day snack for me while exploring the French Quarter. You can nd gumbo shops on just about every street in the Quarter. Some were better than others and I really liked the spicy ver sions. S ome folks made it just with chicken and sau sage, but I prefer it with chicken, sausage and shrimp and a few extra dashes of hot sauce. I have a recipe for gum bo that I think you will nd easy to make just make sure you have all of your ingredients located before you start to make it. Having all your ingre dients at arms reach is v ery important to execut ing any recipe and I try and teach our culinar y team the importance of that. So, hope you enjoy this recipe and make a big pot of gumbo and share it with family and friends.

We live in a society obsessed with food. And those of us opting to make healthy food choices tend to be in the minority. Its no problem to nd a can dy bar or a Big Mac when y oure traveling, but if youre a Paleoista, well, it can be challenging. In fact, when most folks rst decide to adopt a Pa leo lifestyle, they tend to pr epare their own food and avoid eating out at restaurants where healthy options can be hard to nd. So, when youre a Pa leoista and you end up tr aveling or on vacation, it can be difcult to stick to your clean-eating regi men. B ut, as a frequent yer myself, Im here to tell you that you can, indeed, stay Paleo on the go. All it takes is a bit of planning. The following tips will help: %  B ring your own food. This seems like a nobrainer, but its easy to overlook the obvi ous. If youre driving to y our destination, bring a cooler with lots of sta ples like hard-boiled eggs cooked sausage, ker, kombucha, veg gies, jerky, dates and fr uit. If youre ying, you wont be able to bring a cooler, but you can cer tainly shop for those basics when y ou reach your destination. Yelp! is a great site to search for local organic grocers and farmers markets, so do some research be fore you land. %  Look for a r oom with a kitchenette. If you can get a hotel room with a kitchenette, get it. These units generally come with a fridge and a range. This will allow you to prepare some of your own meals so that you can avoid as many restaurants as possible. %  B ring an empty wa ter bottle. Fill up your biggest water bottle if youre driving to your destination and keep to your regular hydra tion schedule as much as possible When you y, pack a large empty water bottle in your luggage and hav e it lled on the plane. Keep yourself good and hy drated so that your hunger is kept at bay. %  R eview menus before hand. If you do need to eat out at a r estaurant, look at the menu online ahead of time if possi ble. This will allow you to see if ther e are op tions you can eat and, if not, y oull be able to look through menu items to see if you can piece together enough safe items to make a special request of the chef. If youre going on vacation at an all-inclu sive resort, or if the restaurants youre eating at ar e buffet-only, walk around to see whats available before you ll your plate. Stick with meats and veggies, skip ping bread and desserts. %  E xercise. Make use of the hotels tness room. If you practice yoga, bring your mat. If you have a favorite work out DVD, bring it with y ou, or nd some exer cise videos on YouTube. I f the weather is ne, go for a run or a walk around the city youre visiting. Staying active while you travel is very important, especially because its so difcult to stay 100 percent on track with your eating. Remember that one bad meal choice will not sab otage you. If you slip up, make sur e youve chosen something thats worth it and move on!Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of Body Clut ter and the Saving Dinner series. www.savingdinner.com.With some planning, you can eat paleo on the go DINNER dD IVALeanne Ely

He gave an informative talk about Social Security and how numerous individuals are missing out on income. Social Security is the largest source of income for the majority of people age 65 and over. For 36 percent of these people, Social Security is 90 percent or more of their income. Nearly all Americans participate in Social Security and Medicare. Currently, there are 2.9 workers for each Social Security bene ciary. By 2035, there will be 2.1 workers for each bene ciary. Millions more will receive bene ts in the coming years with an estimated 91 million people receiving bene ts by 2035. When is the best time to retire? The answer depends on your personal situation including your nancial needs, health, family longevity, continuing to work and other retirement income. If you do not need Social Security to meet your current living expenses and you are in good health, you might decide to delay entitlement until you reach full retirement age or later and receive larger bene ts. An unmarried, divorced spouse may be entitled to bene ts starting at age 62 if married to you for at least 10 years if you are at least age 62 (whether retired or not) or are receiving Social Security disability bene ts. Beginning in 2012, the Social Security Administration stopped mailing printed statements three months before your birthday. The information in the statement is now online and provides a secure and convenient way to access your Social Security earnings and bene t information. Check the information carefully and report any incorrect information to the SSA as quickly as possible. Order the earnings statement by calling 1-800-772-1213 or by going online to www.socialsecurity.gov. If born after 1929, SSA uses the 35 highest years of indexed earnings to calculate retirement bene ts.Lake Placid Rotarians learn about Social Security Courtesy photoMargaret Ellerbee (from left), president of the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club, introduces Cheryl Brown from Edward Jones and Ron Pillion at last weeks meeting.

Thats what members of the Avon Park Founders Garden Club were told by Pat Bates. Bates presented a pro gram on planting by the cy cles of the moon and gave out charts that showed when certain plants should be planted. Below-the-ground plants should be planted during the full moon and aboveground plants during the new moon cycle. If you mow your lawn and dont want it to grow fast, mow on the full moon cycle. She also offered other tips to help in the yard. To kill weeds, pour common table salt on them. The phases of the moon affect the tides and how water is pulled to plants from un der ground. B ates gave each mem ber seeds from her yellow tabebuia tr ee. President Betty Han nah opened the business meeting with a pr ayer fol lowed by the pledge to the ag.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 23, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | B7 Placid Lakes Party LineBy Susie LeeLAKE PLACID The Placid Lakes Pioneers are off and running! We are garnering more and more information, and it looks as though there will be suf cient material to create a publication r elating the history of the Placid Lakes subdivision dating back to the Tobler Era. Rick Deasy, a former resident of Placid Lakes, and one of the rst bartenders at the Placid Lakes Country Club, provided the group with a priceless dossier complete with pictures and captions. He will be back for the next meeting on May 15 at the PLCC, and you will see a column in the PLHOA Newsletter written by Dick Greider relating some of Ricks recollections. One of the humor ous stories around at this time was of a Lake June Monster sighted, not sure if it was 20 feet long, and was reported around May in the local paper that this huge catsh was capable of devouring a small child. We have our own Loch Ness in Placid Lakes, can you believe this!? Another true story is about the Tower in Lake Placid. You could go up to the top free; there was no restaurant at the top, but you could view the area for 40 miles. There was a gift shop at the bottom and there was a talking bird named Joe, who would greet you at the door. Sometimes he said Hello, sometimes he didnt. I would like to see that open again. There was a pic ture of the tower in Toblers br ochure put out in 1963. It was advertised as being two miles from the Placid Lakes subdivision. It says Open at the top of the Tower, April Fools! We are waiting for a line dance instructor. If you know a few line danc es, come and share on W ednesdays. Its a fun group looking for a little exercise and fellowship. The Placid Lakes Social Circle will meet on the rst Thursday (May 1) at PLCC. Sign up for the June 11 Dinner Theatre play, Midlife Crisis. Call Joyce Briski, 699-6331. The Fireworks Cruise out of Fishermens Village on July 4 has been cancelled. We will be doing some thing else in July. Well have some infor mation on that at the May 1 meeting. There will be a dance cruise on the Caloosahatche River on Aug. 9, including bus, din ner, music, cruise, taxes and gr atuities. I saw a beautiful, bright yellow Kentucky Warbler this week. The Compound seems to be a huge maternity ward. Theres a lot of nesting going on!Town and Country Mobile Home ParkBy Janet DayLAKE PLACID Isnt it wonderful to be living in sunny Florida (most days)?

Mark shared board goals achieved this sea son (in cooperation with management) including pool improvements to be completed in May; round tables donated by park owner; drainage prob lems are being addressed and will be monitor ed. He thanked our managers for their cooperation in work ing with the HOA board. M anagers Kim and Mike announced guidelines for anyone choosing to rent their home during the win ter months.

Kim Pascoe spent last Friday visiting downtown businesses to invite them to Paint the Town Purple. At least 35 businesses have agreed to do just that by this Friday. Pascoe, who is a member of the Avon Park Relay for Life Committee, said the businesses will decorate their storefronts or their ofces in purple to help draw attention to the May 2-3 Relay for Life. Not only will they be decorated, but each participating business on Main Street will also have hidden at least one pair of purple sneakers inside to be counted by visitors. Visitors can stop by the stores/of ces along Main Street to count the number of sneakers and turn their guessed number in the night of Relay. There will be one lucky winner. There will also be a winner of the Best Decorated Workplace. Relay participants and visitors will be able to vote on the decorated businesses the night of the event. A winner will be named before the event is over at 6 a.m. May 3. Pascoe warns, however, that those visitors counting sneakers may want to pay close attention as some businesses/of ces may Avon Park is painting the town purple to support annual Relay for Life May 2-3 Courtesy illustrationEach participating business on Main Street will have hidden at least one pair of purple sneakers inside to be counted by visitors.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 23, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A3 BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Mary Musselman has formally been ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluations. The order came from Circuit Court Judge William Sites on Monday as part of a pre-trial hearing that had been postponed from last week. The 81-year-old Sebring woman has been kept in a secure adult congregate living facility following her release on bond from the Highlands County Jail on charges that she violated a court order to cease and desist from feeding wild bears. Sites appointed a pair of psychologists to make the determination as to whether or not Musselman is competent to stand trial. Her attorney, William Fletcher, previously had argued that his client may have mental issues. She is confused there is no question about that, Fletcher argued. Reportedly, two Bartow psychologists have been selected for the task Dr. William Kremper and Dr. Traci Hartig. There is no indication as to whether either of them have been asked or have accepted the case. After their rulings, the State Attorneys Of ce will decide whether or not to pursue the case against Musselman. A status hearing has been set for June 11. In the meantime, Fletcher has announced he plans to le a motion to withdraw Musselmans pleas issued in the misdemeanor case, which happened before he became involved in the issue. If we show that she was not competent to enter a plea, we can get that set aside, he said. Fletcher also indicated that arrangements have been established so that whatever happens in the felony case also will be binding on the misdemeanor action. Theres no reason to try this twice, he said. Musselman was arrested Jan. 29 after an agent from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission found bowls of corn and birdseed scattered about the property of her home on Kenilworth Boulevard despite a court order prohibiting her from feeding animals. She allegedly kicked at the arresting of cers and threatened to shoot the FWC agent if she came on the property again. Meanwhile, of cials of the FWC report they have had to euthanize yet another bear Monday in Hernando County. This bear had absolutely no fear of humans and had been a nuisance in the area for some time, said FWC spokesman Gary Morse. A lady apparently felt threatened by it as she was getting into her car and it approached her.

The document outlining the 2012-2013 scal year was released last week by the Highlands County Clerk of Courts Of ce. The eighth annual analysis is designed to allow citizens to have a better understanding of where the government gets the money it spends, as well as how those dollars are managed. Because such a study cannot be completed until the end of a scal year, the report deals with the last budget cycle. It was compiled from the 258page Comprehensive Annual Financial Report Among the major accomplishments listed in the 27-page analysis are the 2012 Public Radio System upgrade that went live in September. Also listed was work on Sebring Parkway Phase II. Construction of the north portion of the roadway between North Ridgewood Drive and Youth Care Lane was nished in that budget year. The report also gives a listing of all county departments, as well as details on the ve constitutional of ces including the Clerk of Courts, Property Appraisers Of ce, Tax Collectors Of ce, Supervisor of Elections Ofce and Sheriffs Of ce. Operations at the Highlands County land ll and asphalt plant are outlined as well. To help in comprehending the fact-rich document, there is a list of de nitions of different kinds of governmental nancial activities ranging from dedicated and restricted funds to program and general revenues, so readers may better understand how their elected of cials spend the money. That is followed by a series of graphs and pie charts depicting revenues and expenses for that scal year as well as where general fund budget monies were allocated. For instance, only 55.4 percent of the money taken in by government came directly from ad valorem or property taxes. While nearly half of all money collected from taxes, fees, grants and other sources was spent on public safety (49.7 percent). Also depicted was the range of property tax assessments over the past decade, the principal property tax payers in the county as well as other nancial data such as actual property values compared to taxable property values.

However, Ofcer Shan-non Lei Strenth did cite one driver Brittany Eliz-abeth Paul, 20, of 162 Cody Way in Sebring, with driv-ing on a suspended li-cense. Paul was turning left from the northbound lanes of U.S. 27 onto Ham-mock Road, and told po-lice she had a green trafc light that had just changed to yellow when she began her turn and was hit by a southbound white 2011 BMW 328i convertible, driven and owned by Lo-renzo Moses Weathers, 46, of 307 Lark Ave. in Sebring. Paul was in a blue 2006 Dodge Durango, owned by James Jemicah Easterday of 3324 Astoria Ave., ac-cording to crash reports. The impact spun the Durango 90 degrees and crushed the front end of the BMW, which stopped beyond the intersection approximately 30-40 yards from the point of impact. Everyone was wearing seatbelts and both airbags deployed in the wreck, re-ports said. However, Weathers pas-senger Juwanna Har-ris, 37, of 1414 S. Tulane Ave. in Avon Park com-plained of leg pain and was taken by Highlands Coun-ty Emergency Medical Ser-vices to Highlands Region-al Medical Center. No other injuries were reported. The wreck blocked the two outside southbound lanes for up to a mile un-til the wreck was cleared approximately 40 minutes later.1 hurt in wreck at Hammock Road Phil Attinger/News-SunHighlands County Emergency Medical Services immobilize Juanna Harris, 37, of Avon Park on Monday for transport to Highlands Regional Medical Center.

When the driver couldnt make the turn, he crossed outbound trafc, hitting an outbound passenger car before plunging down an embankment, said Sebring Fire Chief Bradley Batz. The driver of the car complained of some pain but declined to be transported to a local hospital. Batz said the driver was taken to the hospital by family. Larger tow trucks had to be called in to extract the heavy trucks from the embankment, Batz said.MISSED TURN LEADS TO SEBRING P ARKWA Y CRASH Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Hon-or mom this year with a special gift by help-ing the Aktion Club of Highlands County in their effort to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 23, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A5 NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEWThere are many people who talk a good game about wanting to give back to their community. We reserve our admiration for those individuals who prove they truly want to serve. Like the hundreds of volunteers who give back to their fellow man in dozens of ways working in our hospitals, schools and church missions; delivering meals to the house-bound; manning a food pantry; driving veterans to doctor appointments. From Scout leaders to special event staffers to volunteers at thrift stores, these are the citizens who enhance our community. Every one of these generous people deserves our respect and gratitude, yet there is a group of volunteers who go a step farther who often have to put family second and their lives in harms way. Were referring to volunteer re ghters, who make tremendous sacri ces without pay or promise. According to Highlands County Emergency Management, there are currently 10 volunteer departments serving the county. The number of volunteer reghters uctuates between 200 and 250 and they save the county almost $40 million in salaries and bene ts alone. While volunteers do not have to pay for their training, they must take a statemandated, 246-hour course and participate in continuing education. And they have to be willing at a moments notice and at any time of day or night to drop everything, leave their regular jobs or the family dinner table, and rush toward the ames. And they have to be willing do all that for free. Tuesday night, county commissioners honored volunteer re ghters in a special nighttime meeting. We are proud to join in recognizing these extraordinary men and women of courage and heart. We thank them for their service. They do more than just talk a good game. They stand up and deliver.Volunteer firefighters worthy of honorBraha Sebring, LLC, is the company behind the Swamp Hammock Outdoor Recreation Club, which is trying to bring mud bogging to Highlands County. This will include monster pick up trucks, ATVs and motorcycle racing. Our local media have reported that Braha Sebring is trying to get a Temporary Use Permit from the Highlands County Zoning Department. I dont believe that the media has reported that their rst priority is a permit from the South Florida Water Management District. Perhaps with the water management permit, everything else would fall into place. Highlands Audubon believes that the SFWMD application for Swamp Hammock doesnt do justice to the area, the environment, or the wildlife. Mud bogging uses huge amounts of water in a brief period, certainly a problem during a drought. Accidents with ruptured gas tanks, with fuel, oil and antifreeze leaking out, and working their way to the aquifer and Fisheating Creek would be inevitable. And it is one of the few recharge areas for the Floridan Aquifer. The Braha Sebring application pans local wildlife, saying that ranching has left the area mostly pasture. The area is actually corridor for the Florida panther and for black bears. The property is about a mile from Blue Head Ranch, where government has spent millions on conservation easements. We believe that Florida sandhill cranes are nesting in this area; one reason to be concerned about wetlands. The Florida sandhill crane has the status of Threatened under Florida law, and does not migrate, but nests in Florida. Audubon members have seen white pelicans on the Skipper Ranch, next door to Swamp Hammock. It is unusual to see white pelicans in Highlands County. People live here for years without seeing one, let alone a ock. Wild birds are attracted to the area and make it a stopping place. Is pasture worthless to birds? Audubon members have seen burrowing owls with holes in cow pastures. They not only visit but nest there, living with domestic cattle. The application says that the wetlands on the property provide no downstream bene ts. They are saying that since these wetlands dont ow into a creek, they are almost useless. On the contrary, the Environmental Protection Agency tells us that wetlands without an obvious surface water connection store water and recharge the aquifer. The EPA website goes on to give the example of 46 billion gallons of water in South Carolina, stored in wetlands without a surface connection. According to the EPA, wetlands, including those that arent connected to the river network, are among the most biologically diverse and productive ecosystems in the world. Migratory birds, which depend on healthy wetlands, are hunted by 2.3 million people a year, who spend more than $1.3 billion doing it. Over a third of endangered and threatened species are dependent on wetlands, and half make use of wetlands. About half of North American bird species live in or use wetlands. These wetlands occupy only 5 percent of the land in the United States, but 31 percent of our plant species grow there. The presence of such important wetlands and the certainty of gasoline pollution are especially important since this part of Highlands County is an area of high recharge for the Floridan aquifer. This is from Florida Geological Surveys and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Are small wetlands that do not feed into a creek of value to Florida sandhill cranes? Sandhill cranes usually do nest in small marshes and other isolated wetlands. They build their nests from cattails, bulrushes and other plants that are abundant in these small wetlands. The evidence is overwhelming that impairing the impounded wetlands on the property with mud bog activity will have a signi cant negative effect on wildlife. Florida sandhill cranes, owls, Florida panthers, black bears, gopher tortoise and other wildlife will be driven away by the huge amount of noise generated by mud bogging events. Domestic cattle and horses will also be affected. The Highlands County Audubon Society urges the South Florida Water Management District to protect the people of Florida and its environment by denying this permit.Robert Hummel is president of the Highlands County Audubon Society.

OBITUARIES BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Mother na-ture provided a perfect day for a park dedication Tuesday morning may-be because it was also Earth Day. Sadie Kahn Park in downtown Sebring was of-cially dedicated after al-most two years of renova-tions to the building-sized open space on Ridgewood Drive, between the vacant Nan-Cess-O-Wee Hotel and Lindas Books. On July 9, 2012 the CRA Board approved $30,305 for the beautication proj-ect of Sadie Kahn park. The project remained contingent upon the property being deeded to the city and an agreement approved by both the Se-bring city council and the Kahn family. One year later, on April 22, 2013, Marvin Kahn re-quested additional fund-ing from the CRA board for the project. CRA board approved $50,000 total for the Sadie Kahn Park proj-ect. The property remains in a deed to the city. The park was rede-signed and new develop-ment plans were creat-ed last summer. Designer Ken Triester created the beautiful mural as well as the conceptual visual art throughout the park. Landscape architect Chad Clouser followed Triesters design concept to create what will be a lush, tranquil setting for residents and visitors to enjoy. Chad and Ken did a re-ally amazing job with all of this, said CRA Director Robin Hinote. The park features a mu-ral of Sebring pioneer Sa-die Kahn along with a PVC pipe sculpture. City Administrator Scott Noethlich revealed that another piece of the park would be on its way in the near future. Ken is going to be add-ing a fountain sometime in the future. Its not just going to be a regular foun-tain, hes designing it to go along with the theme of the entire park, said No-ethlich. Its beautiful here already. Once that gets in here, the grass gets grow-ing in a bit and the bam-boo grows up, itll be real-ly beautiful. Mayor John Shoop read a proclamation at the cer-emony dedicating the park as a part of the Earth Day celebration. This helps in preserv-ing the earth and the en-vironment. The city of Se-bring keeps continuing and improving the pres-ervation of Earth by going above and beyond, said Shoop. The conservation and protection of our nat-ural and cultural resourc-es has always been impor-tant. I encourage the city to preserve and protect this.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.Sadie Khan Park dedicated on Earth Daycar endurance race held here in the third week in March each year. If ones goal is to en-joy the Florida sun far from the hassle of tour-ists and beaches, Sebring is the perfect choice, they write. The article points to the citys histor-ic downtown area, call-ing it bucolic and cites a number of what are termed modest, holi-day-specic events held throughout the year. The article also claims that long-time residents boast of the absence of any interstates or major highways. They like the fact this serves as some-thing of a buffer against the tourists and develop-ment that have changed so much of the traditional Florida environment. Greater Sebring Cham-ber of Commerce Execu-tive Director Liz Barber was pleased about the designation. I always knew Sebring is a great place to live, work and play, she said. Its great to see that were also being recognized by others. Ranking number one in the survey was Key West, followed by Boni-ta Springs. Rounding out the Top Five were Key Largo and Destin. RANKING FR OM PA GE A1 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID A lo-cal man allegedly pushed a deputy and slammed his arm in a door during a foot chase in December. Now, Akua Travon Samu-els, 26, of 1525 Buck Street in Lake Placid is facing charges of assault and bat-tery on a law enforcement ofcer. Samuels is also facing charges of resisting an of-cer with violence, posses-sion of less than 20 grams of cannabis and posses-sion of drug equipment. The charges were led on Monday, in reference to an incident that took place on Dec. 28, 2013. A Highlands County Sher-iffs deputy reported see-ing Samuels at 7:07 p.m. that day in Highway Park, in the area of Vision Street and Crestmore Avenue, standing near the inter-section. Samuels had two out-standing warrants with the Highlands County Sher-iffs Ofce, and as soon as Samuels saw the deputy, he tried to hide. As soon as the depu-ty got out of his car, Sam-uels began to run east on Vision Street. The depu-ty chased him to the rear of a boarding house where Samuels had climbed some stairs and attempted to get in through a door. The deputy grabbed Samuels by his arm and told him he was under ar-rest, but Samuels pushed the deputys chest and broke through the door. When the deputy tried to follow, Samuels closed the door on his left arm. They struggled for a while and they Samu-els let go of the door and ran through the building and out the front, with the deputy in pursuit. Outside the building, other dep-uties had found and ap-prehended Samuels, re-ports said. On searching him, they found a foot-ball-shaped grinder used for grinding cannabis, and found residue inside that eld-tested positive for the drug, reports said. When deputies arrived at the Highlands Coun-ty Jail, Samuels had his eyes closed and his neck wrapped in his seat belt. Several tests by deputies and then emergency med-ical personnel conrmed Samuels was conscious, reports said, but to be safe, they transported him to Highlands Regional Medi-cal Center. On the way there, re-ports said, Samuels be-came violent, and while both deputies and emer-gency medical technicians were holding him, he al-legedly attempted to bite one of the EMTs, reports said. One of the depu-ties stationed with Samu-els at the hospital report-ed that Samuels was found to have both marijuana and cocaine in his blood-stream at the time.Man charged with battery on deputy BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID A lo-cal man is facing a child cruelty charge after three people saw him hit a 10-year-old boy on the side of his face with a closed st. Witnesses also reported that he beat the boy by hitting him several more times after he fell to the ground, then picking him up and shaking him. Carlos Earl Pyatt Jr., 27, of Lake Placid refused to give a full statement to Lake Placid police on Monday without an attor-ney present. He did make some statements, but those were redacted from arrest reports. The ofcer also noted in arrest reports that Py-att gave conicting state-ments to him and to the Child Protective Services ofcer. Pyatt was charged with cruelty toward a child/ abuse without great harm, and taken to the Highlands County Jail where he was being held in lieu of $15,000 bond. During the investi-gation, police attempt-ed to speak with the boy, but Pyatt would not al-low ofcers to speak with him alone, of-ten speak-ing when the child spoke, reports said. Eventually, Pyatt al-lowed another adult to stand with the child dur-ing questioning. According to arrest re-ports, the boy told po-lice that Pyatt had hit him on the left side of his face with an open-hand-ed slap. The ofcer ob-served that the boys left ear was red and warm to the touch, reports said. The ofcer also saw scratches on the under portion of his left arm, re-ports said. The boy said he had gotten them two or three days ago, but the ofcer reported that they looked fresh and consis-tent with the child being grabbed with force.Lake Placid man charged with child cruelty P YATT Photo by Ian BelangerLocal vocalist and winner of the American Idol Experience at Disney Cammie Lester presents Kevin Roberts, CEO of Champion for Children Foundation, with a $5,000 check during a benet concert headlined by the local up and coming artist.

Anyone with further in-formation is asked to con-tact Detective Roger St. Laurent at the Sheriffs Of-ce Criminal Investiga-tions Unit by phone at (863) 402-7447 or (863) 402-7250. Anyone with in-formation who wants to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward is asked to contact Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800226-TIPS (8477) or on the Internet at www.heart-landcrimestoppers.com. Law enforcement has had problems with the street parties that fol-low Highway Parks annu-al family-oriented Easter Sunday celebrations, Ben-ton said. The afternoon and evening casual block parties have included cus-tomized car gatherings and dance music, but have also included public drink-ing as the events wore on into late night. The Sheriffs Ofce rst became aware of the events approximately ve years ago, she said, and such parties have been heavily advertised, re-ferring to Highway Park and the event as Hush-mouth Flawda. While the car show has fallen by the wayside in the last couple of years, public drinking has not. I took a lot of heat be-cause it was advertised hard everywhere, Benton said. People from all over came to it. Her concerns original-ly stemmed from a shoot-ing death at a similar event years ago in Clewiston, where the local sheriff had to call her department for reinforcements. Benton said her response in High-way Park was to set up a command post and have deputies patrol the area, similar to handling secu-rity at the annual 12 Hours of Sebring race. This year, however, the Highway Park event had no high-prole advertis-ing, so Benton did not set up a command post. She said she assigned two dep-uties on overtime to patrol close to Highway Park. They were the rst to ar-rive when the call came in at 2 p.m. about the shoot-ing, she said. Benton said her depart-ment has tried to get orga-nizers to apply for permis-sion from the Highlands County Commission to close the streets often blocked by cars, people and vendors. Such per-mits allow law enforce-ment, re departments and EMS to make a pub-lic safety plan for injuries, res or crimes. Plus, the permit plan also helps law enforcement provide safe-ty at an event. Weve tried to get them to do it correctly and close the street, Benton said. (They) have not ever complied with county re-quirements to do it. Finding out who is in charge of each years event is also difcult, Benton said, because that per-son or group changes each year. Mondays early morning event where the shooting took place was an after-after-party loose-ly organized by Antario Clark, a.k.a. T-Black, to promote a movie called Risk and scheduled for 2-6 a.m. He didnt promote the event as heavily as his pre-decessors, she said. SHOT FROM PAGE A1combination of contract changes and county bud-get issues. The soonest they would have been able to have had an event would not have been until June and, of course, a lot of our winter residents would have been gone by then, Diefendorf said. So we just felt like it would be best to wait until fall. It will be the rst time since 1990 the collection event will not be conduct-ed in the spring. The col-lection event is designed to make residents aware of the countys collection services and to provide for proper and safe disposal of various chemicals. Citizens traditional-ly drop off things such as used motor oil, old paint cans, household chemi-cals, old herbicides and pesticides as well as bro-ken electronics and oth-er such material that of-cials want to keep out of the landll. A two-man crew from the Massachusetts-based rm Clean Harbors al-ready comes in on an asneeded basis to do socalled shed clean-outs at the countys recycling plant on Arbuckle Creek Road. They then collect and dispose of the mate-rials taken in there during regular weekly business hours. Diefendorf said that is a more frequent, but less expensive process. The recycling is open every day from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Diefendorf said. People drop those kinds of things off and when our shed gets full we call them. In the past, there have been regular hazardous material collection events in the spring and in the fall. The spring clean-up traditionally had been the larger of the two. We use Clean Harbors for those too, but they have a much bigger crew that comes in for those, Diefendorf explained. The collections began in 1990 as a way not only to keep such materials out of the landll but also to cut down on illegal dumping in various areas through-out the county. Records indicate that over the past ve years the county had taken in more than 150 tons of electron-ics waste alone. WASTE FROM PAGE A1have only one sneak-er and others may have more than one.

BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING A man has been charged with aggravated assault and ring a weapon into a dwelling in connection with a domestic dispute on Sunday. In an effort to protect the identity of the vic-tim, the News-Sun is withholding the name of the 74-year-old sus-pect, who was arrest-ed after police arrived at his home and found him distraught and holding a handgun while a woman was locked in the bath-room. The exact address was redacted from reports, but witnesses reported to the News-Sun that the house was on Evange-line Avenue in northeast Sebring. The incident began at 10 a.m. Sunday, accord-ing to arrest reports. The female victim had re-turned from church and the suspect started an argument, accusing her of having sex with her priest. She told ofcers that she tried to tell him he was wrong, but he wouldnt listen to her. She told police that the suspect had done this on several occasions and ignored previous at-tempts to reason with him, reports said. The woman said ar-guing continued for an hour or more, occasion-ally calming down, but the suspect eventually grabbed a dinner plate and threw it on the oor of the kitchen, breaking it into several pieces, re-ports said, prompting her to lock herself in the bathroom. The suspect tried to get in, yelling and pounding on the door, she told ofcers, and then she eventually heard what sounded like a gun being red just outside the door. How-ever, she did not come out until police arrived, reports said. Four ofcers Ste-phen Williams, Paul De-shazo, Rick Little and Brandon Low arrived on scene. Little, Low and Williams took up posi-tions around the house while Deshazo knocked on the interior garage door and identied them as police. Williams stated in re-ports that while he was on the southwest corner of the house, he heard Deshazo ordering some-one to drop a gun, so he moved into the garage to nd Deshazo and Little ordering the suspect to drop his gun. The man, however, told them that he wanted ofcers to shoot him because he wanted to die, reports said. Deshazo said in re-ports that he saw the suspect had his gun hol-stered on his left side, so he took the suspects arm while both Lit-tle and Williams helped handcuff him. According to reports, the suspect said he was upset the woman was cheating on him and asked what Deshazo would do. The ofcer did not answer. Reports also said the woman showed ofcers the master bedroom and the bathroom where she was barricaded. Police saw what appeared to be a bullet hole in the bed-room wall, right above the bathroom door, as well as debris inside the bathroom, on the oor, which appeared to be from the bathroom wall. Deshazo told Wil-liams that the suspects PF9 9mm handgun was missing one round from the magazine. The woman told po-lice that she was the only one in the house with the suspect at the time, and that the hole was not in the wall be-fore she locked herself in the bathroom on Sun-day. In their investigation, ofcers found the sus-pect had several re-arms easily accessible in his home. He was taken to the Highlands County Jail and is being held in lieu of $15,000 bond.SPD: Man charged with assault after firing gun Get the paper delivered to you! NEWS-SUN

www.newssun.com Wednesday, April 23, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A9 SPORTS BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com AVON PARK It may be too little, too late, but the South Flori da State Col lege Panthers arent going into hiberna tion just yet, having topped State College of Florida by a 4-2 score Saturday and holding on against Hill sborough Monday in an 8-6 win. It was disappointing to have lost to St. Pete and miss the opportunity for postseason play, head coach Rick Hitt said. But the guys bounced back and played hard. They want to nish the season playing well. Juan Terron and Brad Burdett combined to hold the Manatees down in Saturdays win and Tyler Bender got the win on the mound Monday night. With the pair of victo ries, the Panthers helped keep the Suncoast Confer ence standings jumbled up for postseason seed ings. Polk State has the top seed locked down with its 21-5 record, but after that, no team is currently over, or even at .500. State College currently BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com AVON PARK Mon day nights umpiring crew seemed determined to make things more dif cult on the opening night of the District 9-4A Base ball Tournament at Head Field. They started by inexpli cably banning all media from the both the dugout and designated photogra phy area, and n ished off the night by allow ing for an extra out in what could have been a massive reversal of fortune. But the photographers and Lake Placid both per severed, though the re sults might not have been quite as well polished, in the Green Dragons 7-4 win over Frostproof. Staff ace Tyler Carr toed the rubber for Lake Plac id and worked through a one-two-three rst, and then helped his own cause in knocking in the open ing run in the bottom of the frame. Isaiah Velasquez drew a walk to start it, moved to second on Alex Millers sacrice bunt and came around to score when Carr ripped a single through the right side. Carr then worked around a lead-off walk in the top of the sec ond, striking out two, and seemed to be settling into his usual command. Laine Daum helped pad the lead in the third, with a two-run single, and Carr scored another on a Jus tin LaRosa ground out to push it to a 4-0 game. But Carr never did quite nd his rhythm and an RBI double in the top of the fourth made it 4-1, with another Bulldog score in the fth cutting the lead in half. I dont know what it was, but I didnt have command tonight at all, Carr would say afterward. But I tried to battle and just pitched to contact. Which came in handy in the sixth, when Frostproof had runners at second and third with one out. But Carr got the contact he needed with consecu tive ground outs. The offense, with some lax Bulldog defense, then seemed to put it away in the bottom of the sixth. Jacob Cram drew a walk to lead it off and on an er rant pick-off throw, raced all the way to third. Then, another pick-off attempt sailed high and Cram came in. Just Mason then took a walk as well and was moved to second on a perfectly placed sacrice bunt from Sam WeberCallahan. RIK STEVENS STEVE PEOPLES Associated Press BOSTON Unn ished business. Deance. Hope, strength and resil ience. They used differ ent words but the mean ing was the same for thousands of people who were stopped by twin bombings at last years Boston Marathon and came back this year to nish what they started. The 118th running of the storied race from Hopkinton to Boston was run under the long and still-sharp shadow of the 117th, which turned trag ic when two bombs ex ploded near the nish line, killing three people, injuring more than 260 and searing the day into a city with a long mem ory. On this marathon Monday, there was no choice but to remember, reect and even confront the past, but the athletes found it easier and more fun to celebrate. Jeff Glasbrenner said he returned to Boston for some unnished busi ness after being forced to stop at mile 25.9 last year following the bomb ing. I felt like those two bad guys stopped a lot of people from going af ter their dreams. I need ed to come back, said Glasbrenner, 41, who runs with a prosthetic right leg after losing part of his leg in a childhood farming accident. It was the most amaz ing thing crossing that nish line, he said mo ments after he complet ed the race with two oth er amputees, all from Arkansas. But it wasnt for us. It was for all these people out here. A total of 35,755 ath letes were registered to run, the second-largest eld in its history, with many coming to show support for the city and its signature sporting event. Boston Strong the unofcial slogan adopted after the terrorist attack was everywhere, from the quiet suburban start ing line in Hopkinton, through the sound tun nel created by the Welles ley College student body, up fabled Heartbreak Hill and nally down Boylston Street to the n ish, where the bombs went off. Lee Ann Yanni, whose left leg was badly injured in the bombing, said she could feel the energy of the crowd pushing her to the nish. It was really emotional crossing the nish line, she said. We got our n ish line back. Thats all that mattered. The elite racers gave the crowd a reason to cheer, too. American Meb Ke izighi won the mens title in 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds, the rst Amer ican man to break the tape since 1983. Keizighi had the names of last years vic tims written in black marker on the corners of his race bib. At 2:49 p.m., the mo ment the bombs went off a year ago, there was a moment of silence fol lowed by a swelling cheer that chased runners to ward the nish, rising in a wave as it got closer to the blue and gold line that marks the end of the race.

They dont mind. Its a small price when a team is looking for a third straight title. Wade keeps the equip ment guys busy on game days: He needs at least one pair of new sneak ers to start games, a back up pair ready just in case, and usually two full sets of uniforms because his pen chant for producing tons of sweat often leads to ingame wardrobe changes. Nobody complains, be cause everyone around the team knows the Heat are signicantly better when Wade is playing. Such was the case Sun day, when Wade scored 23 points and the Heat won Game 1 of their Eastern Conference rst-round se ries against Charlotte. Wade made 10 of 16 shots, added ve assists, played 34 minutes and was part of a Heat win for the rst time in a month. He downplayed it all af terward, but being on the court, in a win, without setbacks was an extremely positive sign for the Heat guard. Just a natural day, didnt have to think too much, Wade said. Just was play ing and making reads. Game 2 of the best-ofseven series is tonight in Miami. The Heat had no for mal practice on Monday, though that hardly means it was a day off. When Wade doesnt play, hes often working hard er than when he is on the oor, between treatments and conditioning and weightlifting and all the things he needs to keep an edge. After he strained his hamstring March 26, Wade wanted to play a few days later. The team kept him out longer than he hoped or wanted but the end re sult was that he was fully healthy for the start of the postseason, which was the biggest key to Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. We had to see certain things before we could clear him, Spoelstra said. And nobody wanted a setback. Not now.

Head was making his rst start after a years military service. 1952 Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians and Bob Cain of the St. Louis Browns matched onehitters. Cain wound up as the winner, 1-0. 1952 Hoyt Wilhelm of the Giants hit a home run at the Polo Grounds in his rst major league at-bat. He was the winner, too, and pitched 1,070 games in the majors but never hit another homer. 1954 Hank Aaron hit the rst home run of his major league career. The drive came against Vic Raschi in the Milwaukee Braves 7-5 victory over St. Louis. 1962 After an 0-9 start, the expansion New York Mets won their rst game, beating the Pitts burgh Pirates 9-1 behind Jay Hook. 1964 Ken Johnson of the Houston Colt .45s became the rst pitcher to lose a nine-inning nohitter when Pete Rose scored an unearned run to give the Cincinnati Reds a 1-0 victory. 1989 Nolan Ryan came within two outs of his sixth career no-hitter, losing it when Nelson Liriano tripled in the ninth inning as the Texas Rangers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1. Ryan n ished with his 10th lifetime one-hitter. 1999 Fernando Tatis hit two grand slams in one inning to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 12-5 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Central Florida Striders Dash and Dye Age Group Results sits in second at 12-13, with Hillsborough next at 12-14 and St. Petes at 1113. And South Florida will have more to say about the seedings before the season is done, as in addi tion to Fridays home date against Polk, the Panthers still have two left against St. Petersburg. SFSC FROM PAGE A9 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Rodney Forbes races toward third for a third-inning triple Monday and would soon score the rst run in SFSCs 8-6 win over Hillsborough. Paul Cantwell reached on an error, putting run ners on the corners, which lead to a double steal and brought Ma son in. They gave us some, but we were also forcing the action, head coach D.W. Daum said. We were having good at bats, getting on base and run ning the bases well. Velasquez then sent a bunt up the rst-base line that scored Cantwell and make it a 7-2 lead with just three outs to go. But the Bulldogs, and the umpiring crew, wouldnt let it be quite that easy. After Carr struck out the rst batter of the in ning, two singles sand wiched a walk to bring a run in and bring Cantwell on in relief. A hit batter then load ed the bases, but a hard grounder to rst was snared by Cram and thrown home to get a force for the second out. The rst pitch to the next batter was a called strike, though it wasnt put up on the score board. The count then went to an actual 3-2, though the scoreboard was show ing 3-1. A swinging strike caused a moment of pause, before Daum alerted the home plate umpire that it was, in fact, strike three. He looked at his click er and said that it was, Daum said. The call was then made for the out, which caused some protest from the Frostproof side of the eld. After a consultation with the rest of the um piring crew, the call was inexplicably reversed with the batter stepping back into the box. The next pitch was ball four, forcing in a run and bringing the potential winning run to the plate. But Cantwell settled in and took care of busi ness, striking out the next batter and moving the Dragons on in the tour nament. That was kind of cra zy there and I really dont understand what they did, Daum said. But these kids did what they had to do. Tyler didnt have his best stuff, but he battled through and the defense was strong behind him. The tournament con tinued Tuesday night with Mulberry and McK eel playing the ear ly game and Lake Placid squaring off with topseed Avon Park. See Fridays News-Sun for a recap of the results.

Our marriage may not be perfect, but its quite good. My dilemma is this: My husband keeps track of every time we have sex and has a personal goal of 100 times a year. In 2013, he informed me that wed had sex only 76 times, and that was not adequate for him. He was quite upset about it. Do you think track-ing your sex life is nor-mal, and what do you think about a couple mar-ried for 30-plus years hav-ing sex 76 times in a year? Is that normal? Also, keep in mind that he travels for business and is gone about 60 days a year. PRESSUREDDEAR PRESSURED: Your husband sounds like a college student who is striving to get 100 notch-es on his belt. Rather than obsess about the num-ber of times you have had sex, the quality of the ex-perience should be more important. Fifty GREAT times a year would be bet-ter than 100 so-so times, one would think. And no, I do not think your hus-bands preoccupation is normal whatever nor-mal is these days. DEAR ABBY: After six years of unsuccessful fer-tility work, my husband and I were forced to give up. Last summer his sister offered to be a surrogate for us, and well use a do-nor egg since I have none. We have told only a few people. Were having an em-bryo transfer next week and thought wed wait un-til after the rst trimester to announce. But what is the proper way to do it when its not actually I who is expecting? And is there etiquette for having a baby shower in this situ-ation? Were excited and proud of this opportunity, but it takes a lot of explaining for people to understand and not be judgmental. This is the closest well ever get to experiencing pregnancy, and I want to enjoy it to the fullest. MODERN MOM-TO-BE IN WASHINGTONDEAR MOM-TO-BE: Congratulations on your pregnancy. Because it takes explaining, I recom-mend you share the happy news with your family and close friends by telling them in person. That way, you can answer any ques-tions they may have di-rectly. When you want the world to know, you may decide to send a mass email or post photos on the Internet. As to having a baby shower because this is a happy event you are cel-ebrating and you will need things for the baby, Im sure a friend will want to host one for you. Be sure to include your sister-inlaw if she would like to at-tend. DEAR ABBY: My 18-year-old granddaugh-ter is seeing a 30-year-old man. What can I say to let her know he is way too old for her? I dont want her to hate me. LOVING GRANDMA IN FLORIDADEAR LOVING GRAND-MA: I dont think that tell-ing your granddaughter the man is too old for her would be a good idea be-cause it would imply that she is too young, and no 18-year-old wants to hear that. Tell her instead that you think she would have a lot more in common with someone closer to her age. This is particular-ly true if she is still in high school.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil-lips, and was founded by her moth-er, Pauline Phillips.

Lauren and I spent a chilly afternoon on the golf course with some friends. While play-ing, one of our friends said something about gumbo and that got me thinking. My rst job away from home was in 1992 at the Mount Washing Hotel in Bretton Woods, N.H. I was 18 and worked as a waiter in the main dining room, which seats 1,000 guests. After that sum-mer, I went to New Or-leans and worked at a restaurant called Alex Pa-touts Louisiana Dining Room. We served classic creole cuisine on an up-scale level. In that restaurant I was a captain and worked with three other wait-ers as a four-person ser-vice team. The captain handled taking the or-ders and serving wine while the front waiter did all the table-side services and the back waiter and server assistant made sure that the tables were cleared and prepared for the next seating. While working there, I really enjoyed that type of cuisine and especial-ly liked the gumbo. It was a favorite mid-day snack for me while exploring the French Quarter. You can nd gumbo shops on just about every street in the Quarter. Some were better than others and I really liked the spicy ver-sions. Some folks made it just with chicken and sau-sage, but I prefer it with chicken, sausage and shrimp and a few extra dashes of hot sauce. I have a recipe for gum-bo that I think you will nd easy to make just make sure you have all of your ingredients located before you start to make it. Having all your ingre-dients at arms reach is very important to execut-ing any recipe and I try and teach our culinary team the importance of that. So, hope you enjoy this recipe and make a big pot of gumbo and share it with family and friends. Cheers, Chef.GUMBO 1 cup fresh yellow onions, diced, 1/4-inch 1 cup fresh green bell pep-pers, pre-diced, 1/4-inch 1 cup fresh celery, diced, 1/4-inch 2 cups frozen cut whole kernel corn 1 pound frozen, cut okra 2 cups fresh Roma toma-toes, diced, 1/4-inch 1-1/2 quart vegetable stock (from base) 1 tsp. olive oil 4 oz. raw Andouille link sausage 1-1/2 pound cooked, fro-zen shrimp 1 quart long grain brown rice 8 tbs. onions, green, scal-lion, bunch, fresh, slicedPRE P ARATION METHOD1.

We live in a society ob-sessed with food. And those of us opting to make healthy food choices tend to be in the minority. Its no problem to nd a can-dy bar or a Big Mac when youre traveling, but if youre a Paleoista, well, it can be challenging. In fact, when most folks rst decide to adopt a Pa-leo lifestyle, they tend to prepare their own food and avoid eating out at restaurants where healthy options can be hard to nd. So, when youre a Pa-leoista and you end up traveling or on vacation, it can be difcult to stick to your clean-eating regi-men. But, as a frequent yer myself, Im here to tell you that you can, indeed, stay Paleo on the go. All it takes is a bit of planning. The following tips will help: Bring your own food. This seems like a nobrainer, but its easy to overlook the obvi-ous. If youre driving to your destination, bring a cooler with lots of sta-ples like hard-boiled eggs, cooked sausage, ker, kombucha, veg-gies, jerky, dates and fruit. If youre ying, you wont be able to bring a cooler, but you can cer-tainly shop for those basics when you reach your destination. Yelp! is a great site to search for local organic grocers and farmers markets, so do some research be-fore you land. Look for a room with a kitchenette. If you can get a hotel room with a kitchenette, get it. These units generally come with a fridge and a range. This will allow you to prepare some of your own meals so that you can avoid as many restaurants as possible. Bring an empty wa-ter bottle. Fill up your biggest water bottle if youre driving to your destination and keep to your regular hydra-tion schedule as much as possible. When you y, pack a large emp-ty water bottle in your luggage and have it lled on the plane. Keep yourself good and hy-drated so that your hun-ger is kept at bay. Review menus before-hand. If you do need to eat out at a restaurant, look at the menu online ahead of time if possi-ble. This will allow you to see if there are op-tions you can eat and, if not, youll be able to look through menu items to see if you can piece together enough safe items to make a special request of the chef. If youre going on vacation at an all-inclu-sive resort, or if the res-taurants youre eating at are buffet-only, walk around to see whats available before you ll your plate. Stick with meats and veggies, skip-ping bread and desserts. Exercise. Make use of the hotels tness room. If you practice yoga, bring your mat. If you have a favorite work-out DVD, bring it with you, or nd some exer-cise videos on YouTube. If the weather is ne, go for a run or a walk around the city youre visiting. Staying active while you travel is very important, especially because its so difcult to stay 100 percent on track with your eating. Remember that one bad meal choice will not sab-otage you. If you slip up, make sure youve chosen something thats worth it and move on!Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of Body Clut-ter and the Saving Dinner se-ries. www.savingdinner.com.With some planning, you can eat paleo on the go DINNER DIVALeanne Ely

The co-chairwomen, Barbara King and Judy McLaughlin, along with their committee, chose to decorate the clubhouse with an Easter theme. After the luncheon catered by Mae Lees Deli, president Phyllis Summers, along with the co-chairwomen, presented a $1,000 scholarship check to Jane Hancock, a South Florida State College representative. This scholarship is designed to go to a deserving woman who has decided that additional education will help better her standard of living. McLaughlin introduced the speaker, Margaret Sager, who spoke on the bene ts of home schooling. Beginning her speech with praise for the public school teachers, Sager told members she has her masters degree in Reading Education and taught in the public school system for four years. Being a product of home schooling during her high school years, she desired this experience for herself and for her four children. She said there are 400 home-schooled students in Highlands County and there are various organizations available to assist parents who want to home school their children. The regular meeting had the reading and approval of the slate of candidates for the next two-year term. Elected to ofce were president Lois Bechtold, vice president Johnell West, recording secretary Nancy Rockhill, correspondence secretary Peggy Arnett, and treasurer Ann Tift.Womans Club of Sebring gives time, money to education Courtesy photoGFWC Womens Club of Sebring presents a $1,000 check to South Florida State College.

He gave an informative talk about Social Security and how numerous individuals are missing out on income. Social Security is the largest source of income for the majority of people age 65 and over. For 36 percent of these people, Social Security is 90 percent or more of their income. Nearly all Americans participate in Social Security and Medicare. Currently, there are 2.9 workers for each Social Security bene ciary. By 2035, there will be 2.1 workers for each bene ciary. Millions more will receive bene ts in the coming years with an estimated 91 million people receiving bene ts by 2035. When is the best time to retire? The answer depends on your personal situation including your nancial needs, health, family longevity, continuing to work and other retirement income. If you do not need Social Security to meet your current living expenses and you are in good health, you might decide to delay entitlement until you reach full retirement age or later and receive larger bene ts. An unmarried, divorced spouse may be entitled to bene ts starting at age 62 if married to you for at least 10 years if you are at least age 62 (whether retired or not) or are receiving Social Security disability bene ts. Beginning in 2012, the Social Security Administration stopped mailing printed statements three months before your birthday. The information in the statement is now online and provides a secure and convenient way to access your Social Security earnings and bene t information. Check the information carefully and report any incorrect information to the SSA as quickly as possible. Order the earnings statement by calling 1-800-772-1213 or by going online to www.socialsecurity.gov. If born after 1929, SSA uses the 35 highest years of indexed earnings to calculate retirement bene ts.Lake Placid Rotarians learn about Social Security Courtesy photoMargaret Ellerbee (from left), president of the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club, introduces Cheryl Brown from Edward Jones and Ron Pillion at last weeks meeting.

B6 | NEWS-SUN | W ednesday, April 23, 2014 www.newssun.com Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Did you ever plant something and it didnt grow? You may have planted it on the wrong cycle of the moon. Thats what members of the Avon Park Founders Garden Club were told by Pat Bates. Bates presented a pro-gram on planting by the cycles of the moon and gave out charts that showed when certain plants should be planted. Below-the-ground plants should be planted during the full moon and aboveground plants during the new moon cycle. If you mow your lawn and dont want it to grow fast, mow on the full moon cycle. She also offered other tips to help in the yard. To kill weeds, pour common table salt on them. The phases of the moon affect the tides and how water is pulled to plants from un-der ground. Bates gave each mem-ber seeds from her yellow tabebuia tree. President Betty Han-nah opened the business meeting with a prayer fol-lowed by the pledge to the ag. Because of the suc-cess of the clubs booth at the Springtime on the Mall Festival, the club will be sending two camp-ers to Camp Wekiva. Anita Helbig thanked the mem-bers for their help with the booth. Betty Scott report-ed two types of bulbs were sold out. She brought bulbs with her for mem-bers to purchase. A collection was taken for the Penny Pines proj-ect. Members were re-minded of the plant sale at Avon Park Correction-al Institute on May 3. Two members of the club have signed to go to the district meeting in Lake Placid on April 22. Rosie Longanecker re-ported on the type of tree that would be the best to plant at the library for Ar-bor Day. She will contact members about the time of the planting. Corre-spondence was received concerning the Flori-da Federation of Garden Clubs wildower seed program, and plant sales/ ower shows being held by other clubs in District IX. The nominating com-mittee presented a slate of ofcers for the 2014-15 garden club year. There being no other nomina-tions from club members, the slate was approved. The ofcers will be presi-dent Betty Hannah, vicepresident Anita Helbig, secretary Pam Johnson, treasurer Martha Williams. The installation of ofcers will be hosted by Flori-da Hospital Heartland Di-vision on May 8. Mem-bers were reminded to pay their dues by this meeting. Anyone wanting more information about the Founders Garden Club should call 452-1927.

With some sickness and the snowbirds who have left there were 20 members weighing in, but the club did have a loss. Leader Judy OBoyles pep talk was about what makes everyone happy. She talked about how members cant possibly be happy 100 percent of the time, but there are moments, days, and maybe longer periods. All agreed losing weight was one happy moment. Karen Goodwin took roll call. Betty Ker-pan was the best los-er for the week and it is her rst week towards a four-week loss for the evasive travel gift. OBoyle asked mem-bers to go out with a smile, be happy and en-thusiastic and have a wonderful positive atti-tude this week. The group meets for weigh-in between 3 and 3:45 p.m. every Mon-day at the Womens Club House in Lake Placid.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 23, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B7 Placid Lakes Party LineBy Susie LeeLAKE PLACID The Placid Lakes Pioneers are off and running! We are garnering more and more information, and it looks as though there will be suf-cient material to create a publication relating the history of the Placid Lakes subdivision dating back to the Tobler Era. Rick Deasy, a former resident of Placid Lakes, and one of the rst bartenders at the Placid Lakes Country Club, provided the group with a priceless dossier complete with pictures and captions. He will be back for the next meeting on May 15 at the PLCC, and you will see a column in the PLHOA Newsletter written by Dick Greider relating some of Ricks recollections. One of the humor-ous stories around at this time was of a Lake June Monster sighted, not sure if it was 20 feet long, and was reported around May in the local paper that this huge catsh was capable of devouring a small child. We have our own Loch Ness in Placid Lakes, can you believe this!? Another true story is about the Tower in Lake Placid. You could go up to the top free; there was no restaurant at the top, but you could view the area for 40 miles. There was a gift shop at the bottom and there was a talking bird named Joe, who would greet you at the door. Sometimes he said Hello, sometimes he didnt. I would like to see that open again. There was a pic-ture of the tower in Toblers brochure put out in 1963. It was advertised as being two miles from the Placid Lakes subdivision. It says Open at the top of the Tower, April Fools! We are waiting for a line dance instructor. If you know a few line danc-es, come and share on Wednesdays. Its a fun group looking for a little exercise and fellowship. The Placid Lakes Social Circle will meet on the rst Thursday (May 1) at PLCC. Sign up for the June 11 Dinner Theatre play, Midlife Crisis. Call Joyce Briski, 699-6331. The Fireworks Cruise out of Fishermens Village on July 4 has been cancelled. We will be doing some-thing else in July. Well have some information on that at the May 1 meeting. There will be a dance cruise on the Caloosahatche River on Aug. 9, including bus, din-ner, music, cruise, taxes and gratuities. I saw a beautiful, bright yellow Kentucky Warbler this week. The Compound seems to be a huge maternity ward. Theres a lot of nesting going on!Town and Country Mobile Home ParkBy Janet DayLAKE PLACID Isnt it wonderful to be living in sunny Florida (most days)? Our son in Central New York advised us last night (April 16) their tempera-ture was dipping to 22 de-grees overnight and the ground had covering of snow. Many of our resi-dents have already ven-tured north, but some are awaiting the arrival of signs of spring. Safe trav-el and an enjoyable sum-mer to all. At the Homeowners Association meeting on April 7, Public Information Ofcer Nell Hayes, Highland County Sheriffs Ofce, updated us con-cerning the Neighborhood Watch Program. Nell was happy to report there was nothing to report at Town & Country. However there have been burglary is-sues in the area, main-ly involving young peo-ple. Scams appear to be much more creative. We were cautioned to be very vigilant on the Internet and to check our credit/ debit card statements for any unknown charges. She also advised banks do not email customers for per-sonal information. Park Events chairper-son Wendy Johnson rec-ognized several people for their assistance with luncheons/dinners/ac-tivities through the win-ter and thanked all who have helped. Louise and Bill Mattson, Claudette Boisvert, Daphne Rigle, Marion Hibbard, Hal Johnson, and the men who work the park break-fasts were recognized. The pool party on April 5 was a great success with ca-tered chicken and fabu-lous side dishes from those attending. Singer Lora Patton entertained plus our own Jerry Neidzielski performed his rendition of Red Solo Cup to every-ones delight. President Mark Sims recognized board mem-bers and thanked them for their support through the year. He introduced Terry and Tina Ingram, new residents on Springtime Drive. The Ingrams will be permanent residents in the fall. They are touring Alaska and the west coast over the summer in their RV. Mark shared board goals achieved this sea-son (in cooperation with management) including pool improvements to be completed in May; round tables donated by park owner; drainage prob-lems are being addressed and will be monitored. He thanked our managers for their cooperation in work-ing with the HOA board. Managers Kim and Mike announced guidelines for anyone choosing to rent their home during the win-ter months. Background checks and ofce ap-proval are pre-requisites for any renter. They ad-vised Town and Country is doing a video shoot for the park. Park residents to in-clude the Johnsons, Snays, Bette Chapel, Dave Cavell and Calli (dog) all active-ly participated in the video presentation. This will be available for our viewing at a date to be announced. A new washer/dryer have been placed in the laun-dry room. Kim and Mike thanked residents for maintaining their homes/ lots and reminded folks they are expected to have same cared for while we are away. The ofce must be advised of the caretaker prior to leaving the park. Wendy Johnson was pre-sented a plaque recogniz-ing her years of service to park residents in her role as Park Events chairper-son. Congratulations and thank you, Wendy, for all your efforts on our behalf. John and Kathy Diehl have purchased the Mace home on Town and Country. We will great-ly miss one of the longest Town and Country resi-dents, Margie Mace. Marge tentatively plans to re-turn to Sebring area dur-ing the winter months. Best wishes to you, Marge, from your many friends/ neighbors. Shirley Poor now resides at the former Shipley home on Town and Country. Welcome to all new residents. Allen and Marie Barber are also returning north perma-nently. Allen led the win-ter Bible study group for many years. We will all miss the Barbers who were also long-time residents.
