A child advocate volunteer for the Guardian ad Litem program, Taylor has spent the past three and a half years serving children in need in almost every capacity imaginable, which has earned her the News-Sun Unsung Hero award for the month of April. Though she wouldnt admit it, Taylor is one of the busiest and most dedicated volunteers in the organization and is praised by many of her colleagues and friends. The special gift Linda has working with teen girls is amazing, said Volunteer Coordinator Lisa Falcon. I have seen and heard from teens (about) the connection she has made with them and it is remarkable how she relates to them. Renee Grider, another volunteer coordinator, has watched Taylor rst hand and witnessed her dedicated work ethic. If I could clone her, child welfare would truly be a much better place, said Grider.

Its brothers helping brothers, said Commander Fred Arbelo. The Purple Heart chapter hosted a golf tournament in February and raised $1,200. That money was used to purchase 48 gift cards in the amount of $25 each. Arbelo and a delegation of fellow Purple Heart medal recipients presented the gift cards to Highlands County Veterans Service Of cer Denis Williams in a brief ceremony Wednesday. Its important that we step up and help our fellow veterans when they are in need, Arbelo said. Thats where we partner with the VSO of ce and the staff here. Theyre trained to identify need and to get these cards in the hands of veterans who really need the help. Williams had high praise for the Purple Heart chapter and its efforts. This is a great bunch of guys who are always willing to help their fellow veterans, she said. Their kindness will go a long way in helping others.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 30, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A3 rrfnt rrbnrr rbrrtrrr brrt Financial Aid is Available to Those Who Qualify.600 West College Drive Avon Park, FL 33825-9356 rfntbrbrrrrf bt t bt BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Thirtyone Fred Wild Elementa-ry School third graders got treated like one big Italian family Tuesday morning during a eld trip to the Olive Garden restaurant as part of the Pasta for Pen-nies fundraiser. Teachers Charlene Smith and Stephanie Da-vis, along with their stu-dents, were given the royal treatment in the privacy of their own little nook at the restaurant, starting with a guided tour through the kitchen by Olive Garden manager Lorenzo Ortiz. As the students learned their way around the soup station, sauce and dish-washing stations, their tummies grew rumbly with the smells of Italian favorites. The Pasta for Pennies fundraiser contest is open to all Highlands County schools. This year, howev-er, Fred Wild was the sole participant in the county. Though they had no competition outside the school, FWE students put on their game faces for the fundraiser to see who could come out on top. Originally, there was only supposed to be one class winner, but (it) was so close with the fundrais-ing dollars that they let us both share the win this year, said Davis. Students raised approx-imately $3,000 during the Pasta for Pennies fund-raiser. The money raised will go directly to the Leu-kemia and Lymphoma So-ciety to benet those cur-rently battling the two diseases. One of the students had a very personal reason to work to raise funds and was very proud of his class and fellow fundraisers. My cousin Rebecca (Bishop) had leukemia. She had treatment for four years. Now she is do-ing very good, said third grader Teddy Peterson. I was glad when I heard we won. Im going to try to do this again next year in fourth grade, said Pe-terson. Students Ryan Scott, Evy Tumbleston and Tori Alt-man also worked extra hard to raise funds for the event. Scott mowed nearly 10 yards in a two-week pe-riod to raise money. I think it was almost $70 I raised. It was fun, said Scott. Tumbleston enlisted the help of Lorida Church of the Brethren church fam-ily for donations during three services, and Altman got some help from pa-trons of one of Sebrings other restaurants. My mom works at Dees Place. I went with her and helped clean up tables and stuff like that. I asked people to donate each time I went, said Altman. Between the two class-es, $700 was raised nearly a third of the entire schools fundraising ef-forts. The two classes enjoyed spaghetti and meat sauce, breadsticks and salad dur-ing their private lunch.

Students received a special tour and a spaghetti lunch for raising money for the Pasta for Pennies fundraiser.

The artist reception at the HCA Galleries in the Sebring Airport is from 12-2 p.m. Saturday. Ap-petizers and beverag-es will be provided by JR Runway Cafe. This free event is open to the pub-lic. Yarbour was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. She is a graduate of Ohio State University. With her husband, she moved to South Flori-da in 1980. She has been painting most of her life. Her work was featured in many galleries around South Florida. She is the winner of several awards for wildlife painting. I cant conceive of anything more var-ied, rich, and handsome as the planet Earth. Its crowning beauty is the natural world, Yarbour said. I want to soak it up, to understand it as well as I can, and express it in my painting. I try to capture the spirit and personality of each of the animals I cre-ate. Some have a very calm and gentle manner while others are much more active and dramat-ic. The challenge of all artists is to create power-ful works that portray to others the very spirit of their subject, whatever that subject may be, and to give life to their art. There will be a fundraising raffle at the event for choice of menu meals donated by JR Runway Cafe in the Se-bring Airport. Drawings are at 1 and 2 p.m. Free meals can be re-deemed any day during normal restaurant hours. Local authors Sun-ny Serafino and Ger-ald Pleau will also be on hand for book signings. The exhibit runs through June 3. Gallery hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, seven days a week.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 30, 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 VIEWWe think the proposed target range at the countys clay pit on County Road 17A in Avon Park is a good idea. For one thing, it will bring in money from outside the county that is currently headed out. For another, what is now an abandoned, overgrown and ugly site will be brought back to life and put to use. Highlands County can certainly use a safe gun range overseen by National Rie Association certi ed personnel. Gun owners need a place where they practice and have fun. Parents need a place where they can teach their children how to shoot and handle a gun safely. The 4-H Club had to disband its gun program because of the lack of a facility. Currently, the nearest ranges are in north Polk and Okeechobee counties. The idea of a gun range, however, is not original to us. Jeri Canale and Steve Marabel, co-owners of Boom Boom Guns & Ammo, were the individuals who introduced it to the county commission. Not only that, but they told the News-Sun they had done their due diligence rst contacting the NRA to get an insurance rider; checking with the department of environmental protection, OSHA and the countys planning and zoning advisory board. We have issues with what happened next. From our perspective, Canale and Marabel had earned the chance to ful ll their proposal. After all, if not for them, no one would have thought of it. Instead, the commission asked for letters of interest, and then for bids from anyone interested in the project. So now there are three competitors: Canale and Marabel; the Heartland Gun Club; and one from a group in Avon Park that identi es itself as The Team, which includes Avon Park City Councilman Garrett Anderson, who owns an ammunition manufacturing business. Of course, we support the bidding process. We know how important it is in keeping the countys business honest and fair. If the gun range had been the county commissions idea, we would be insisting on doing things by the book. But this is a different situation. The only nancial issue regards the real estate itself. Will it be leased, or offered for sale? We dont yet know. Given that it was Canale and Marabels idea, that they invested time and effort and are not asking the county for funding of any kind, we wonder why the hold up and why the county felt the need to complicate the process. The county commission should support ideas that bring economic development opportunities to the county, not throw up road blocks.In the past year, I have quietly watched two young mothers come to grips with having to watch their children deal with this terrible disease called cancer. The pictures I saw recently posted on Facebook of Jackie Jackson and her teenage daughter Jade can just break your heart. Jade sits in a chair without the smile that is so familiar to those who know and love her. The missing smile alone is enough to let you know she is hurting and doesnt feel well. Then you look at Jackies face and what you see is a mothers love and concern for her young child. I dont know Jackie personally. I probably know her husband a little better, but only because I remember Greg from school. They are both much younger than myself. Regardless, I have come across Jackie in various ways since Jades diagnosis early last year and have watched them both as the news goes up and down. I have also watched and learned from Mandy Guthrie, Jackies sister, who has been quite open about the feelings of the family as they travel Jades Journey. Mandy has done a wonderful job of keeping friends informed of what Jade and the family are going through. She, of course, shares some of her own personal thoughts. Some of the emotions are raw, but everything that is written is from the heart and as open as the family wants it to be. Mandy will be with Jackie and Jade, as well as other members of the Jackson family, at Friday evenings opening ceremonies of the Avon Park Relay for Life at the Avon Park High School football eld. The opening ceremony is at 6 p.m. Another young woman I have admired from afar has been my second cousin, Candace Yaklich. Candaces daughter, Cedar, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at just 6 months of age. It was found when Cedars tiny feet became red hot and swollen. Tests revealed the cancerous tumor growing around her spine, pinching off the spinal cord. As a result, this sweet baby is now paralyzed. Like Mandy has done with Jade, Candaces husband Andrew has done a wonderful job keeping everyone informed of Cedars journey. Pictures have been posted to show the various events in their timeline. One in particular shows Cedar all wrapped up and the words Cancer Fears Me on the side of her head. Like Jade, Cedar is nearly always smiling in the pictures that are shared. With IVs and ledes running from her tiny little body, she is all smiles and twinkling eyes. The same for her parents, though once in a while you can see the stress they face through their smiles. Then, of course, their families are also affected. Jade has a sister and two brothers and countless cousins and friends who continue to cheer her on. Cedar, who celebrated her rst birthday in January, has two older brothers and a huge number of cousins and friends who are in her corner in this battle. Mandy, Jackie, Candace, Andrew and, of course, Jade and Cedar are proof that this terrible thing called cancer has a face, an all too familiar face. While most of us see their smiles and the optimism, you know that underneath are struggles and pain. They are all people of faith. They not only put their trust in the doctors who treat their loved ones, but, most important, put their faith in God. Last year, I had every intention of taking a break from Relay for Life. That was before I learned of Jades and later Cedars diagnosis. In reality, these ladies and their families are not taking a break from their worries or their diagnosis, so why should I take a break? Instead, Ill be out there Friday night. Maybe not walking with a team, but Ill be busy as a member of the Relay committee. I wont take a break this year as planned. And if the good Lords willing, I wont try to take a break in the future. We all need to do what we can until a cure is found for Cedar, for Jade and for the countless others both young and old who are diagnosed with cancer. Come join me Friday night at the Avon Park High School football eld. Do something for Cedar and Jade.Romona Washington is publisher of the NewsSun.

Highlands County Sher-iffs Ofce, Sebring Police Department, Sebring Fire Department or Highlands County Emergency Medi-cal Services ever want to see. If they do, however, they hope Tuesdays mock emergency will have giv-en them some practice to-wards preparation. All went well, said Nell Hays, public information ofcer for the Sheriffs Of-ce, who also acted as designated spokesperson to media during the exer-cise. We hope we learned something. (Well) nd out what we can do well and what we can do bet-ter. Susan Reed, market-ing director for HRMC, said the hospital holds emergency drills twice each year in coordina-tion with law enforcement and emergency response agencies. She said it helps demonstrate the hospi-tal and staff readiness for extreme emergency situ-ations to both the Florida Agency for Healthcare Ad-ministration and The Joint Commission, respectively the state and national ac-crediting agencies for hos-pital facilities. Its to practice what wed have to do in a true emergency, Reed said. We make it as realis-tic as possible so we can not only test but hone our skills to ensure that in re-al-life situations, we are aware and ready. That realism did not ex-tend to panicking patients or staff who would not be involved in the exercise, Reed said. Participants wore vests or other indica-tors that they were playing parts in the scenario, and both visitors and patients would be warned through signs and through staff that they might see or hear unusual things. Polk County Govern-ment, also participating in the drill, provided lightboard warning signs on U.S. 27 to warn motorists that a law-enforcement exercise was taking place in the area. Pete McNally, Polk Countys director of Emer-gency Management, joined the event as an ob-server and consultant for the debrieng. The ex-act results of the debrief-ing were not released, and Reed said it wasnt likely that HRMC would share what it learned, good or bad. However, McNal-ly said that cooperation is one key factor ofcials want to see in any such exercise. They seemed to work together. They had one voice with good informa-tion and it was dissemi-nated well, McNally said, referring to Hays public information briengs to the press. The Joint Informa-tion Center is the hardest part, McNally added. Through Hays, re-porters learned that the drill started at 9:50 a.m. when a shooter entered the emergency room. Through bulletins and a press conference, report-ers learned that ofcers had shot and captured the shooter, but an ofcer had been shot. The hospital was closed during the inci-dent, Hays said, and the public was warned to stay away until it was safe. As Hays provided more information, she said ve people had been killed and ve wounded in-cluding the ofcer and the shooter. The shooter was airlifted by Aeromed helicopter to a local hos-pital where he was in criti-cal condition, Hays said. Names would not be available until notica-tion of the next of kin, Hays said. Reed, as part of the drill, said hospital staff members thoughts and prayers were with all those affected and was grate-ful to the responders for containing the incident. It could have been worse, Reed said. As part of the drill, she also thanked the commu-nity for staying away from the incident and said that care was not disrupted for the patients: Our rst concern.

He rst was hired in 2011 as an interim replace-ment for Jan Brewer, who had been red from the post. Maxcy was hired on a permanent basis a short time later. Originally elected as a Highlands County com-missioner in 1992, Maxcy served in that capacity for 18 years. I was named county administrator in 1991 and he came on the year after that, said former High-lands County adminis-trator Carl Cool. He took the seat that formerly had been held by Chip Bor-ing. Cool said although Cecil Skipper had the longest number of years served, Maxcy probably had the most consecutive years. Guy was a person that was always trying to nd ways to help the citizens of Highlands County. I never recall even one time that he ever did anything you would consider self-ish, Cool said. Those sentiments were echoed by former Avon Park mayor and county commissioner Doris Gen-try, now Doris Hawthorn. Guy was a very caring person. He always want-ed to do what was right for the citizens, she said. I know it bothered him if he thought we had made a mistake. Former county com-missioner Edgar Stokes said Maxcy had helped him as a commissioner on a number of projects. He was a team play-er, you know, Stokes said. He would listen to all the facts before he made any nal decision. Stokes said that both Maxcy and another long-time commissioner, the late Jimmy Gose, had been good friends and had worked to advance is-sues in the county. Maxcy was a certi-ed county commis-sioner through the Flori-da Counties Foundation, where he was a board member. He also served a term as president of the Florida Association of Counties. He was an active par-ticipant in the Florida Small Counties Coalition and sat on the Heartland Workforce Investment Board, the Library Adviso-ry Committee, the Health Care Council and Rural Health Network, Heart-land Library Cooperative, Highlands County Adjust-ment Board and the Can-vassing Board. Maxcy also worked as a liaison to the Highlands County Water Advisory Committee, the Histor-ic Preservation Commit-tee, Tourist Development Council, Hospital Board and the Highlands Coun-ty Insurance Committee. He lived in Sebring with his wife Jacque. They had three children. He was the owner of Maxcy Group insurance agency in Sebring, and was born and raised in Highlands County. Morris Funeral Cha-pel is in charge of the ar-rangements, which had not been nalized as of press time Tuesday. MAXCY FROM PAGE A1

BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterAVON PARK Home-owners Monday told de-veloper Marty Wohl they didnt want apartments in their neighborhood. Avon Park City Coun-cil members agreed and unanimously denied Wohls request to change land use on an 8.3-acre parcel, which would have allowed him to build up to 80 apartments in twostory buildings within a neighborhood of mostly single-family homes. It was the same message residents said two weeks ago, and the same they said several years ago to another developer want-ing to build rental proper-ty in the same area, Dep-uty Mayor Brenda Giles said. Avon Park has vacant apartments in several complexes now, Giles said. Also, she said renters have complained about high rates and would prefer to buy if someone would build a house they can af-ford. My thought on rent-al property, (is) that it just doesnt y with me right now, Giles said. Councilman Parke Sutherland agreed, say-ing 26 residents contacted him in opposition to the project more than had talked to him about the citys contract with High-lands County Sheriffs Of-ce. I feel it compromis-es peoples way of life, Councilman Terry Hes-ton said about Wohls pro-posal. Wohls owns land on the southeast corner of West Cornell Street and Flori-da Avenue. Its zoned and platted now for 36 singlefamily homes, he said, all with driveways opening onto adjacent streets. He argued that a single-en-trance apartment complex would manage trafc, and said the project showed no negative impacts on trafc studies. Wohl also said he would be willing to have setbacks and buf-fers to reduce impacts to surrounding residents. However, he said he could not afford to build houses cheaply enough for people to afford them without taking a loss, as he did selling an existing home on that block. Marien Venezuela, who said she bought that house at 508 W. Kirkland St. for $62,000, under-stood that the remain-ing vacant land on that block would become sin-gle-family homes. She said neighborhood streets are already backed up with trafc each day from homes and nearby apart-ments, despite what trafc studies said. There are negative im-pacts on us; not the city, us, Venezuela said. She said the only oth-er single-family home on that block is next door. If it sold and became part of an apartment complex, her house would be sur-rounded by apartments, she said. Mike Roberts, retired Se-bring reghter at 513 Tu-lane Circle, a block east of the property, said traf-c potentially could more than double with 80 units, versus 36, even with just two cars per dwelling. I live on a busy area (of street), Roberts said. I watch a lot of near miss-es. John Sedlock, at 127 W. Bell St., has seen Avon Park Middle School stu-dents drop litter on the street and play chicken with trains on their way to and from school. Al-though theyve behaved better this year, more apartments would mean more kids crossing those railroad tracks, he said. Roberts also said hed seen a lot of apartment complexes in the city that didnt seem fully occu-pied. Wohl said his apart-ments would not add to the child population. However, Shirley Ashe of 509 W. Kirkland St. said while building apartments wont put more children in Avon Park, but it will bring more children to our area. Christy Caputo said she and her husband had bought 217 Tulane Cir-cle two months ago with intention of raising their children there. She was concerned with Wohls plan to outsource man-agement to another com-pany, which she believes would not maintain the property. Wohl had said he would contract with NDC Prop-erty Management, the same company that runs Highlands Cove, his apart-ment complex behind Publix in Lake Placid. He also said that under the -nancing he hoped to se-cure from Florida Hous-ing Financing, he would have to own interest in the property for 15 years, and could sell after that. How-ever, nancing covenants would require any new buyer to run the proper-ty according to his same standards for up to 50 years. His statements didnt persuade residents who had lived in the area for 20-30 years and liked their quiet neighborhood.AP Council: Citizens dont want apartmentsThere are negative impacts on us; not the city, us.Marien Venezuela AP resident Katara Simmons/News-SunChild advocate volunteer Linda Taylor (left) looks over a case le with Volunteer Supervisor Renee Grider at the Childrens Advocacy Center in Sebring.the court on what she feels is in the childs best interest, said Grid-er. These are all chil-dren who have been in the court system due to neglect or child welfare issues, whether it be a parent on drugs or what-ever. Taylor gathers all the information about the child and facilitates needed resources like counseling, dental care, medical care or mental health care, Grider said. She then monitors the child in her cases to make sure the court or-ders are being followed. Guardian ad Litem ad-vocate volunteers are re-quired to meet with their children at least once a month. Taylor, howev-er, does things a little dif-ferent. Linda is notorious for meeting with her chil-dren much more fre-quently, Grider said. Transportation of and for children is not mandated but she (Lin-da) has no issues taking these kids wherever they need to go and more. She takes them shopping, on weekend outings and various church functions in the local community, Grider said. Recently, she pre-pared a birthday party for one of her kids. The girl turned 18 years old and I know she spent quite a bit of money making this day perfect for this child, said Grid-er. Taylor was also com-mended for her atten-tion to detail, timeliness, organization skills and following through when it comes to her cas-es. Along with her time at Guardian ad Litem, Taylor works with vari-ous other organizations within the county, including volunteering at the local hospitals and li-brary. Sometimes, volun-teers come to a place and just do the bare min-imum not Linda. She is just amazing. She has a heart of gold, her work is impeccable and she is a true child advocate, Grider said. Volunteer coordina-tors recently moved Tay-lor into a position where she will mentor and as-sist the coordinators with training new Guard-ian volunteers. She has done such a great job here, said Fal-con. She is a wonderful asset to the children in our community.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526. TAYLOR FR OM P AGE A1 Unsung Hero award sponsored by the heroes at Agero BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterAVON PARK The city has been very helpful to residents about haul-ing off garbage, but some non-residents have been taking advantage of of the citys generosity. Thats about to change, if Public Safety Director Jason Lister can enforce stricter codes. On Monday, List-er asked for and got ap-proval from the Avon Park City Council to have Avon Park staff review the solid waste ordinance and suggest changes to make it easier to enforce. Among the problems is the fact that while the or-dinance prohibits exces-sive dumping, excessive is not well dened. Lister and City Manager Julian Deleon said its result-ed in increased disposal costs for the city. Tires are the biggest problem, Lister said Monday. They are im-ported, in my opinion. Lister said hes found single tires and pyramids of radials dropped off on the sides of city streets overnight, costing the city $2 per tire in dispos-al costs for passenger car tires, $10 each for semitrailer tires and $15 each for tractor tires. Lister said the only way to take tires off rims is with a commercial tire changer, so he suspects many of the tires are be-ing dumped by commer-cial operations trying to save themselves money by dropping the costs on the city. Once the tires are re-moved, he said, another pile is there the next day. Tire appear magically overnight, Deleon said. Deleon said the city has been hauling the tires to a recycling facil-ity in Fort Pierce to the tune of $4,000 to $7,000 per month. Lister would like to prohibit all tires from neighborhood pick-up. The city has also seen excessive construction debris and yard debris, especially from homes outside the city limits, Deleon said. Lister said city of-cers have led criminal dumping charges when they catch someone in the act of bringing in re-fuse from outside the city, but the language on city rules are very loose. For example, if a resident puts a large pile of yard debris on the curb, the only thing the city can do is measure it. If its more than 12 cubic yards, the city can charge more for it. Often, however, resi-dents report that they didnt place the pile there and didnt authorize anyone to do it, leaving the city with no one to charge, Lister said. Councilman Garrett Anderson also said some communities have used a community drop-off point for all nearby res-idents yard waste. It in-creases the size of piles and makes it hard for city ofcials to gauge wheth-er or not someone is dumping too much. However, Lister also said that small piles in front of every home on a block can mean more wear on the claw truck. The driver has to pull for-ward, stop, set the outrig-ger supports, deploy the claw, park the claw back in its holder, pull forward again and repeat the pro-cess several times. In other instances, hes photographed what looks like the entire con-tents of homes furni-ture, appliances, cabinets and belongings piled up by the street. One pile included a riding mower.Avon Park to beef up illegal dumping laws Did YouKNOW?In Florida, the bicycle is legally defined as a vehicle. Bicyclists using a public roadway are considered operators of motor vehicles and are responsible for observing all traffic laws. With few exceptions, there is only one road and it is up to motorists and bicyclists to treat each other with care and respect. Adherence to the law is the foundation of respect.

A8 | NEWS-SUN | W ednesday, April 30, 2014 www.newssun.com came in at 2:10 a.m. on April 21. Two deputies al-ready in the area to pro-vide security during the Hushmouth Flawda Eas-ter weekend event report-ed hearing the gunre and arrived on scene to nd Thomas on the ground with a gunshot wound to his lower right back. Thomas was transport-ed to Florida Hospital Lake Placid, where he bled to death from a perforat-ed aorta. Reports said it all started because Thomas car was blocking trafc. Ironically, Sheriff Su-san Benton has said that she has tried to get Hush-mouth event organizers to apply for proper coun-ty event permits in the past, which would allow them to close streets and coordinate with law en-forcement and emergen-cy management for trafc control and security. Typically, she would sta-tion a command post and a squad of deputies to pa-trol the area during the annual event. This years event was not as heavily advertised, so she had two deputies on patrol in the area. Witnesses told investi-gators that Thomas was parked in front of 122 Crestmore Drive in a way that partially blocked traf-c. When a silver Dodge Ram had to drive around Thomas car, an argument ensued that turned into a ght between Thomas and the driver of the truck, then swelled to include a large group half from Moore Haven and half from Highway Park, depu-ties reported. During the ght, wit-nesses reported hear-ing three shots and seeing Thomas fall to the ground. They also told investiga-tors that the shooter was the driver of a dark-col-ored car parked nearby. An anonymous tipster lat-er told deputies that the shooter was Wiggins. A search of Highway Park turned up the Dodge Ram that was involved. Investigators talked with Tlepius Jones, who had bruises, lumps and cuts on his face as if he had been in a recent ght, re-ports said. Jones admit-ted to the ght, saying that he was just trying to sur-vive, but didnt recall any gunre or see Thomas get shot. He did say that he saw Wiggins in the area, but not during the ght. Surveillance video from the Highway Park Li-quor Store, next door to the crime scene, showed a man later identied as Wiggins parking next to the liquor store just be-fore midnight, then sit-ting down and talking to an elderly man at the en-trance of the store for over an hour. At 2:07 a.m., Wig-gins moved his car to a spot near the crime scene. As the ght start-ed at 2:11 a.m. between Jones and Thomas, video showed Wiggins running to his car and reaching in-side it, then running back toward the ght, reports said. As the combatants disengaged, the victim and the defendant come face to face, the report said. Wiggins reportedly pushed Thomas, who tried to retreat toward the park-ing lot. Thats when video showed Wiggins reach-ing out as to grab the vic-tims shoulder with his left hand while his right hand appears to come in close contact with the victims lower back area. Reports said the victim slumped over as the sus-pect moved away toward his vehicle, driving away as Thomas falls to the ground. The report said the vid-eo showed a gun in Wig-gins hand and showed that nobody came near Thomas after he fell to the ground. From a non-custodi-al interview with Wiggins, deputies reported he was caught in a lie because he said he never went back to his car during the ght and did not respond to the actual allegation that he shot the victim. The rest of Wiggins state-ment was redacted.Staff writer Phil Attinger contribut-ed to this story. Editor Scott Dressel may be reached at (863) 385-6155, ext. 516 or editor@newssun.com. SHOOTING FROM PAGE A1 Courtesy photoA group of teens got to go to see the Miami Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 99-88 during a rst-round playoff game last week in Miami. The trip was a part of the Taking Back our Cities effort to detour the boys, who are from at-risk areas, from senseless shootings related to gang violence, drugs, and suicide. This group of young boys are mentored by Rev. Barbara J. Robinson of Ruth House Ministries International Inc., and sponsored by the business and medical community of Highlands and St. Lucie counties. Contact Robinson at (561)767-1778 or Rev. Mary Coston at (863) 699-0478 for more information about the program.THE HEA T IS ON BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING National Day of Prayer observanc-es will be held Thursday starting at 11 a.m. on the front lawn of the High-lands County Court-house. The observance began locally in 1995 after the then-Highlands Coun-ty Clerk of Court Luke Brooker decided to join the nationally recog-nized event. We had received a lot of calls the preceding year asking if we were going to have some kind of ceremony, so the next year we did, Brooker said. Since that time, dozens of local pastors, elect-ed ofcials and others have delivered messages and songs as part of the 40-minute program. We try to hold it to a half hour, but generally it goes over a bit, said cur-rent Highlands County Clerk of Court Bob Ger-maine, who has contin-ued the tradition. Slated to speak this year are Rev. Ted Moore of Heartland Christian Church, Rev. Matt Craw-ford of the First Baptist Church of Sebring, and Dr. Eugene Bengston, re-tired, of Bible Fellowship Church. A number of local of-cials also will participate. Highlands County Tax Collector Eric Zwayre is scheduled to offer the invocation, 10th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Peter F. Estrada is to lead the Pledge of Allegiance, and Highlands County Court Judge Anthony J. Rit-tenour is slated to give a benediction. Another 10th Judicial Circuit Court Judge, An-gela J. Cowden, will sing the national anthem. Cowden was one of the featured speakers earli-er this year at the annu-al Blessings of the Busi-nesses event. Music will also be pro-vided by the Fire and Steel drum band from Walker Memorial Acad-emy directed by Leon-ard Cann and Highlands Little Theatres Joe Lewis, who will offer a rendition of How Great Thou Art. The Fire and Steel band will play twice. They will start about 10:45 to provide music while people are taking their seats, Germaine said. David Flowers will lead the crowd in a rendition of God Bless America. Flowers, a former county commissioner, current-ly is the director of fa-cilities management for Highlands County. The event will be bookended by the High-lands County Sheriffs Honor Guard, which will present and retire the colors. As part of the National Day of Prayer, an Adopta-Leader Prayer Lun-cheon will be held again following the ceremonies on the courthouse lawn. This year, the Highlands University Preparatory School that will host the event. Dubbed One Voice United in Prayer, it will be an opportunity for the community to come alongside local leaders and ofcials by support-ing them in prayer. The luncheon will be set up in the gymnasium at U Prep on Persimmon Avenue across from the Highlands County Fair-grounds. Highlands Coun-ty Commissioner Jim Brooks will be the guest speaker there. Mu-sic will be presented by the UPrep choir and the schools new music and arts teacher, Vicknell Berrios, who will play the harp. Dustin Woods of Grace Bible Church will close the event in prayer. Those in attendance will each be given a bookmark with a lo-cal leaders name. They will be asked to pray es-pecially for that person, but also for all of the lo-cal, state and national elected and appointed ofcials. A chicken dinner will be catered by Mae Lees Deli. Tickets are $12 each and are available at the school ofce or call 3853850 for reservations.Two decades of prayer on the courthouse lawnNational Day of Prayer event to be held Thursday MIKE SCHNEIDERAssociated PressORLANDO Trainers at Sea Worlds marine parks will be wearing safety vests whenever they work in close proximity to killer whales. Sea World trainers on Monday started wearing the vests, which can inate and have tubes hooked up to a small oxygen tank. Kelly Flaherty Clark, Sea Worlds curator of ani-mal training, says the vests have been in development for three years. Thats not long after the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau, who was killed when an orca dragged her into a pool in 2010. Flaherty Clark says us-ing the vests had noth-ing to do with an appellate courts decision upholding a ruling that Sea World had violated a federal work-place safety law. That de-cision on a ruling by the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commis-sion was made earlier this month.Sea World trainers to start wearing safety vests When working with killer whales

LeBron James scored 31 points, and the Miami Heat completed a rstround sweep of the Char lotte Bobcats with a 10998 victory Monday night. James scored 19 points after injuring his thigh in the third quarter. He nished the game 10 of 19 from the eld and had nine assists. Chris Bosh added 17 points and Dwyane Wade battled through foul trou ble and nished with 15 as Miami won its 20th straight game over Char lotte. The two-time defend ing NBA champions will await the winner of Brooklyn-Toronto series, which is tied 2-2. Kemba Walker led Char lotte with 29 points. The Bobcats played without Al Jefferson, their leading scorer and re bounder who has been bothered by a foot injury since the rst quarter of Game 1. The loss signaled the end of an era for the Bob cats. They will become the Hornets next season. The Heat improved to 16-2 in rst-round games since James arrival four years ago. This was the second straight year the Heat swept their rst-round se ries, taking out Milwau kee in four games last sea son. This was Miamis ninth consecutive series victory. Miami began to take control midway through the third quarter shortly after James gave his team mates a scare when he drove to the basket and his right thigh collided with Bismack Biyombos knee, sending him to the ground. James remained on the oor for more than a min ute and concerned team mates began gathering around him.

ELKS SUPPORT SPECIAL STARS BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com As the masses gather at University of North Flori das campus this weekend for the FHSAA Track and Field Finals, four High lands County student-ath letes will be among them. One returnee and three making their rst venture onto the big stage that is this highest level of com petition for the season. Classes 1A and 2A will have their day on the track Friday, beginning at 9 a.m. with a lone Lady Dragon representing Highlands County, albeit in two events. Quiahja Williams quali ed for state in both the 100-meter dash and high jump. The sophomore cleared 4-feet, 10-inches at the Region 3-2A meet at Berkeley Prep, placing fourth, and ran the 100 in 12.82 to place third and secure her spot in Jack sonville. She will have to kick it up a notch, however, as the times shell be running against are impressive. Top seed Alfreda Steele of Pasco ran an 11.64, with Deanna Hill of Lake High land Prep coming in with a time of 11.73. There are two other sub12-second marks in the eld, so it will be tough, but one never knows what adrenaline may kick in amid such competition. Similarly, in the high jump, there are some strong numbers shell be going against, as there are four girls coming in the seed marks of 5-feet, 6-inches, four more at 5-feet, 4-inches and an other four a 5-feet, 2-inch es. The Class 3A and 4A meets take place Saturday, with three Blue Streaks earning the chance to take part. Gary Demarest is mak ing his second consecu tive trip in the discus and comes in as the top seed of the rst heat, with a re gional throw of 149-feet, 10-inches. Im still a little short of where I was at last year at this time, Demarest said. So I know Ive got more in me. Which hell need to do if he hopes to come back with a medal. His seed mark is just eight inches short of the low seed in the second heat, but after that, the distances grow rapidly, topping out at the 189feet, 6-inches of top seed Freddick Jones of Central. That actually moti vates me because it shows Ive got to work harder, Demarest said. The top eight nishes get med als and I didnt get one last year. So this gives me an other goal to reach. Byron Cobb nds him self in a mix of eight oth er pole vaulters who are coming in with seed marks of 12-feet, 6-inches. Three others are just six inches higher and two come in with 13-feet, 6-inch marks, while the top seed, Carson Waters of Osceola, looks like the one to beat with a mark of 15feet, 6-inches. But with such a large group so evenly matched, it is just a matter of who breaks out of the pack and rise up the medal stand. And while Demarest and Cobb both have attainable measurements to reach, so too does Jordyn Blount. The Sebring junior set a school record in winning the long jump at region als, soaring 22-feet, 11 1/2-inches. This mark puts him as the fourth seed for Satur days meet a mere threeand-a-half inches behind top seed Deiondre Porter of Tampa Jeffersons 23feet, 3-inches. Naples Tyler Byrd comes in with a seed mark of 23-feet, 1 1/2-inches and Pine Forests Daveyon Finkley comes in at an even 23-feet. Blount did injure a leg at regionals, which hin dered him from qualifying for state in the high jump as well. But head coach Cynthia Cook says he is healing up just ne and is ready to go. Jordyn is doing much better and is working hard this week on reaching his goal of 23-feet, she said. It has nally sunk in to him that he is going to state as a District Champ and Regional Champ. He is very excited as am I. Highlands track fired up for Finals Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les Jordyn Blount is fresh off setting the Sebring High School long jump re cord, and is seeded within reach of medal standings at state. Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les Gary Demarest is making a return trip to the FHSAA Finals in the discus and needs a bit more distance to reach his goal of medaling this year.

Both teams scored three runs in the 19th inning. Oeschger gave up 22 hits and walked ve, while Grimes allowed 15 hits and walked ve. 1922 Charlie Robertson of the Chi cago White Sox pitched a 2-0 perfect game against the Detroit Tigers. Johnny Mostil, playing left eld for the only time, made two outstanding catches. 1940 James Tex Carleton of the Brooklyn Dodgers threw a 3-0 no-hitter at Cincinnati. 1946 Bob Feller struck out 11 New York Yankees en route to the second of his three career no-hitters, a 1-0 victory at Yankee Stadium. 1961 Willie Mays of the San Fran cisco Giants hit four home runs and drove in eight runs in a 14-4 victory over the Braves in Milwaukee. Hank Aaron hit two homers for the Braves. 1967 Steve Barber and Stu Miller of the Baltimore Orioles combined on a nohitter in a 2-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers in the rst game of a doubleheader. Bar ber pitched 8 2-3 innings and Miller onethird of an inning. 1969 Jim Maloney of the Cincinnati Reds struck out 13 en route to a 10-0 no-hitter over the Houston Astros, the third of his career. 1988 New York and Cincinnati hooked up in a wild game at Riverfront Stadium that the Mets pulled out 6-5, on a delayed call by rst base umpire Dave Pallone. The call resulted in a $10,000 ne and 30-day suspension of Reds manager Pete Rose when Pallone ac cidentally poked Rose in the cheek and Rose shoved Pallone twice. 1999 About 3,000 fans wearing Tshirts that said, $hare the wealth protested baseball economics at the Yankees-Royals game. The protesters turned their backs when the Yankees batted, then walked out of Kansas Citys Kauffman Stadium during the fourth in ning. The Yankees began the season with baseballs top payroll at $85.05 million, and the Royals were 25th at $23.8 million. 2002 Al Leiter cruised through seven three-hit innings in the New York Mets 10-1 rout of Arizona to become the rst pitcher to beat all 30 teams in the ma jors. 2002 Texas Rangers shortstop Alex Rodriguez became the second-youngest player to reach 250 homers a 10-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

The injury only seemed to inspire James after fans cheered when he went down. After the timeout he buried a 3-pointer and a long jumper before a onehanded dunk to help give Miami a 73-66 lead with 4:51 left in the third quar ter. Miami pushed the lead to 13 when Norris Cole knocked down a 3-point buzzer-beater from the right corner at the end of the quarter. Charlotte never got closer than seven points in the fourth quarter. With Wade on the bench for most of the fourth quarter with foul trouble, the Heat went almost ex clusively to James. The four-time NBA MVP scored 11 points in the nal period and Cole and James Jones knocked down big 3-pointers to keep the Bobcats at bay. Despite being without Jefferson, the Bobcats led 54-52 at halftime behind 12 points from Walker. Walker, who nished 11 of 15 from the eld, did a little bit of everything to keep Charlotte in the game. With the shot clock winding down on one possession he purposely red the ball off the back board from just inside the 3-point arc and raced to get his own rebound and put it in. On the next possession, Walker drove the lane and found Biyombo with a nolook feed for a dunk. Before the game the Heat showed solidarity with the Los Angeles Clip pers over the Donald Ster ling controversy. Like the Clippers on Sunday, the Heat ran out of the tunnel wearing their warmups, huddled at center court and tossed their white shooting Tshirts to the ground. They then went through their pregame rou tine with their red Heat warmup jerseys inside out, hiding the teams logo.

LIVING BWednesday, April 30, 2014 ROASTED PE PPE R PESTO RUBBED G R ILLED T B ONESPrep time: 30 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes Total time: 45 minutes Serves: 4 4 Omaha Steaks T-bone steaks 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/4 cup Omaha Steaks Private Reserve Seasoning, or salt and pepper 1 recipe Roasted Pepper Pesto (see recipe below) 4 fresh basil sprigs 1. Preheat grill to medium. Brush steaks with olive oil and season with season ing, or salt and pep-per. Brush both sides of steaks with Roasted Pepper Pesto. 2. Place steaks on grill and cook to desired doneness. (For a me-dium-rare steak about 8 min-utes on rst side and 6 to 7 minutes on second side.) 3. When steaks are nished, brush both sides one nal time with pesto. Serve steaks with dollop of unused pesto in cen-ter of each and garnish with fresh basil sprig. Family Features Quite possibly the ultimate steak, the T-bone embodies the rich blend of varied beef avors that steak lovers crave, from tender and mild to bold and beefy. On one side of the T-bone is the -let mignon. French for dainty llet, the let mignon is considered the most tender cut, with a mild beef avor. On the other side of the T-bone is the strip loin or New York strip, a rm, robust steak that is naturally marbled and offers a bold taste. The bone itself also pro-vides additional avor in the cooking process. With this pairing of tastes, it is no surprise that the T-bone is considered to be the best of both worlds by steak connoisseurs. For more steak recipes, visit www.OmahaSteaks.com. TEN TIPS FOR PERFECT GRILLING 1) Clean and preheat your grill on high. 2) Lightly oil everything before you put it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking. 3) Season your food before grilling. 4) Sear the outside of steaks when grilling. This real-ly helps with the avor and juiciness. 5) Use tongs or a spatula to turn your meat on the grill. Using a fork can damage the meat. 6) Cover your grill as much as possible during the grilling process. This helps to lock in the grilled avor and will help prevent are-ups. 7) Keep a spray bottle with wa-ter handy to douse any unex-pected are-ups. 8) Use the 60/40 grilling meth-od. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the rst side, then grill 40 percent of the time after you turn over the food. This will give you an evenly cooked product. 9) Place your cooked product on a clean plate. Never place cooked product on the plate you used to transport the raw product to the grill with-out thoroughly washing it. 10) Allow your foods to rest for 5 minutes between cook-ing and eating This will help them retain moisture. T HICK S TEAK, B ONE-IN S TEAK AND C HOP C OOKING C HA R TCooking times are in minutes and based on fully-thawed steaks. Gas grill: Preheat grill to high, reduce to medium heat prior to cooking.

GORSKISolution on B5DEAR ABBY: My boy-friend and I have been dating for two years. We live together, and his child from another woman lives with us. I love my boy-friend and his child, but one thing prevents me from imagining us being married: He has his childs mothers name tattooed on his body. The tattoo bothers me for many reasons, and Id like him to have it covered up if we ever do marry. He says he doesnt want to get rid of it. When the topic comes up, we argue. Am I unreasonable for wanting him to get rid of the tattoo? If that woman really is in his past, why does he need a constant reminder of her on his body? IN A STINK OVER INKDEAR IN A STINK: Youre asking the wrong person. Only your boy-friend can answer that. He may not want to go to the expense, or to experience the pain of having more artwork done. Or he may not like the idea that you are telling him what to do. However, if he has been living with you for two years, I doubt its because hes still carrying a torch for someone else. If you love him and the two of you want to get married, my advice is to accept him warts, artwork and all, because regardless of any romance in his past, YOU have habeas corpus. (Thats Latin for you have the body.) DEAR ABBY: I consider myself a social person and enjoy talking to friends on the phone. My prob-lem is, when I talk to one of them, she will never let me get off the phone. Sometimes well talk for several hours, but even-tually I have other obli-gations and have to go. When I tell her that, she often ignores me and keeps right on talking. I dont want to be rude, but sometimes I have to say goodbye four and ve times before she nally acknowledges that I must end the call. It irritates me. I like talking to her, but I cant go on and on forever. How can I make her let me off the phone without hanging up on her or upsetting her? MR. NICE GUYDEAR MR. NICE GUY: The person youre de-scribing obviously has less going on in her life than you do. She may also be a compulsive talker. The next time you talk to her, make the conver-sation face-to-face and tell her that as much as you like her, you dont have the amount of time to spend on the phone that she does. Explain that when you tell her you must end the conversa-tion, if she doesnt stop talking within ve min-utes, you will have to hang up. And then do it. Will she like it? No. But the alternative is that she will continue to take ad-vantage of you which she has been doing be-cause you have allowed it.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil-lips, and was founded by her moth-er, Pauline Phillips.

Witford Reid M.D. Board Certied Anesthesiologist Specializes in Pain Management PAIN 863-385-9333 If youve adopted a healthy new lifestyle for you and your family, you might be starting to miss some of your favorite meals to sit down to. Meals like pizza, for instance. Announcing that its Pizza Night is an easy way to get the family together around the table, but a lot of the chain pizza joints serve greasy, cheesy junk. Luckily, homemade pizza is just as convenient as takeout (if you know how to do homemade pizza right) http:// savingdinnershop.com/ ebooks-2/pizza-ebook/ and theres no contest that its healthier for you. How can you make homemade pizza convenient? There are several ways. Prep ahead of time. If youre planning on making Friday pizza night, keep that in mind through the week. When youre chopping veggies for a stir-fry on Wednesday, set aside some extra for your pizzas. Same goes for meat. If youre cooking ground beef and bacon for a separate dish, set some aside in a container for Fridays pizza. On Friday morning, before work, grate some cheese while youre making breakfast, and set it aside in the fridge for later. When you get home from work, make your favorite crust, get the sauce going and simply put your toppings on and bake. Or, involve the kids and let everyone make his or her own favorite pizza. Freeze it, baby. Another thing you might want to consider, is making your own batch of frozen pizzas. Make your favorite crust recipe and your favorite sauce. When the crust is ready for the pan, bake it for about 7 minutes. After the crust is out of the oven, allow it to cool and then top with sauce (the sauce must be completely cooled), cheese and meats/veggies of your choosing. Freeze for 3 to 5 hours. Then, wrap in plastic wrap, label and date. Voila! Next Friday, you can just take a pie out of the freezer, heat your oven to 375 and bake for 20 minutes or so, until the pizza is nice and golden and bubbly. I would recommend making a few of these at a time while youre going to the trouble, so you can have a stack in the freezer ready when you need them. When you serve your pizza, whether its Paleo, gluten-free or a traditional variety, put as many veggies and lean, local meats on there as you can and go easy on the cheese. Always serve with a great big green salad. Also try thinking outside the pizza box a bit with your combos. Top your pizza with fresh basil, gs and goat cheese. Or make it Thai and top with peanut sauce, chicken and bean sprouts. Why not? Get inspired! We have a couple of great pizza Ebooks you would love. The latest was just released this week, and it features ve crusts, ve sauces and 32 different pizza recipes. It even includes gluten-free and Paleo options. Tell me.

Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show since 2005, told his studio audience during Mondays taping that he will step down at the end of the year. Fergusons show airs after Lettermans, at 12:35 a.m. on weekdays. The move was no surprise after CBS announced that Stephen Colbert will replace Letterman next year. There was a time that Ferguson, whose show won a Peabody Award in 2009, was considered a strong contender for that job. But The Late Late Show has faded in the ratings, particularly with the arrival of Seth Meyers in February as competition in the same time slot. CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are consciously uncoupling, Ferguson said. But we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much. He told the audience it was his decision to leave, adding, CBS has been ne with me. CBS Entertainment Chairwoman Nina Tassler said Ferguson infused the broadcast with tremendous energy, unique comedy, insightful interviews and some of the most heartfelt monologues seen on television.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | W ednesday, April 30, 2014 www.newssun.com I was 7 years old in 1980, and that is when Mat-tie Harris Johnson start-ed working at Capital Re-gional Medical Center. She came with experience because she previous-ly worked at another hos-pital in Tallahassee. Mat-tie started out as a diet aid and did everything from building trays to cooking on the weekends. Mattie was then and still is a real go-getter and in 1981 she was promot-ed to supervisor oversee-ing the daily operations of the tray line. It warms my heart to think of all the people she has cared for through food and nutri-tion in their times of need. Over the years here, Mattie has received em-ployee of the month four times and is known throughout the hospital as Miss Mattie. In 1989, Delores Gosby Chaires started working at CRMC as a diet aid as well as the doctors lounge at-tendant and is now my kitchen supervisor and helps run the day-to-day operations of food and nutrition. When I think about how long these ladies have been here, I am amazed at their dedication to doing their part to help patients along the pathway to well-ness. Over the years these la-dies have seen a lot of changes, from the build-ing of a new hospital to adding two oors to the new hospital eight years after it was built, to a ro-bot that delivers trays to the nurses stations during times of service. I asked Delores what was her favorite meal to eat and being a fourth generation south-ern woman born in Tal-lahassee she told me smothered pork chops, mashed potatoes and col-lard greens. I asked her to share a recipe for smoth-ered pork chops so I could share it with you and this is what she described to me. I put it into measure-ments that would be easy to use. Delores also said, If you dont have any collard greens, any kinda greens will do.

NEWS-SUN SARA MOULTONAssociated PressSpeaking as a mom and a chef, let me assure you one of the nic-est things you can do for Mom on Mothers Day is cook for her. Some-thing sweet is best. And my candi-date? Comforting, traditional rice pudding. Or maybe not so traditional. Classic rice puddings are made from plain white rice. The grains are very tender, the avor is kind of bland, and the color is white. In my recipe, which is made using black forbidden rice, the grains are slightly chewy, the avor is slightly nutty, and the color is deep purple. Once upon a time forbidden rice was said to be literally forbidden. First cultivated in China, forbidden rice was so rare and so nutri-tious no one was allowed to eat it except for the emperor. Today, forbidden rice is considered a de-licious and healthy whole grain we can all enjoy. Like brown rice, forbidden rice is unpolished; the hull of the grain, a rich source of insoluble ber, is left intact. Its also a good source of iron and vitamin E, and a great source of the same antioxidants that put the blue in blueberries. I was rst introduced to forbid-den rice six years ago, when it was still rare. Thankfully, these days its readily available at most grocers. F OR BI DDE N R I CE P U DD INGStart to nish: 3 hours 25 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 4 1/2 cup forbidden rice (Chinese black rice) 1 cup water 2 1/2 cups whole milk, divided 3 tablespoons sugar 1 large cinnamon stick Salt 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger, to garnish (optional) 1. In a small saucepan over medium-high, combine the rice and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a sim-mer. Cook, covered, for 30 minutes. Let stand for a few minutes, then pour through a mesh strainer to discard any excess water. Return the rice to the pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 cups of the milk, the sugar, the cinnamon stick and a hefty pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer and cook, uncovered and stirring occa-sionally, for 40 minutes. 2. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining 1/2 cup milk. Whisk in a large spoonful of the hot rice mix-ture. Add the egg mixture to the rice and cook over medium-low heat, stir-ring constantly, until the custard coats the back of a spoon, 4 to 5 minutes. Do not let the rice pudding boil or the eggs will scramble. 3. Remove the saucepan from the heat, stir in the vanilla and transfer the rice pudding to a bowl. Cover the pudding and chill until cold, at least 2 hours. The pudding will thicken as it chills. To serve, discard the cinnamon stick and divide the rice pudding among 4 bowls. Top each portion with some of the gin-ger.Nutrition information per serving: 280 calories; 70 calories from fat (25 percent of total calories); 8 g fat (3.5 g saturated; 0 g trans fats); 105 mg cholesterol; 42 g carbohydrate; 0 g ber; 17 g sugar; 10 g protein; 160 mg sodium.

The highlight of the evening is awarding the Silver Beaver recipients. Thirteen volunteers that span the eight coun-ties that the Gulf Ridge Council serves, received the award that evening. Among the recipients were Daniel R. Walker and Peter and Karen Albert of Highlands County. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award given to a volun-teer on the Council level. It was introduced in 1931. Recipients of this award are volunteers that have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the Council. The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community ser-vice through hard work, self -sacrice, dedication, and many years of ser-vice. It is given to those who do not actively seek it.TOPS 632LAKE PLACID The TOPS 632 program last week was given by Elaine Orr, who pointed out how different countries eat and still seem to stay thinner than Americans. They are healthier, too. Chamomile tea is good for you along with co-conut oil, ginger, mush-rooms, caraway seeds, sage and, in China, they eat tomatoes to prevent depression. Because of that pro-gram the Yess this com-ing week are mushrooms and Chamomile tea. The No No is left-over Easter candy. After a wonderful hol-iday the habit of a net loss turned into a net gain, the third one this year. Members are de-termined to change that. Vi Christian was the best loser this week. The club had two guests, Kathy and Sharon. They are leaving for the north right away. Mary Lou Liljas name was drawn for the travel gift. Leader Judy OBoyle had a discussion on what members do when they become discour-aged. Everyone agreed that coming to the TOPS club was very important for the support and en-couragement found here. Mary Anderson chal-lenged all to eat a well rounded diet and not a diet that makes us well rounded. The club meets Monday at the Womens Club in Lake Placid.

Kline has writ-ten three childrens books along with an autobiog-raphy about her daughter that is available on Ama-zon.com. The name of the book is Home of the Brave, which is a true story of courage, determination and hope. The basis for this story is two-fold. First, it is imperative to bring to light a desperate need for rehabilitation facilities that will more efcient-ly serve todays men and women veterans who are wounded and/or disabled. Second, an example of precisely why such a need has become imperative is based on the true sto-ry of an Air Force nurse. If she could only speak, she would likely tell in great detail why proper housing and more individualized care for todays veterans is sorely needed. Major Kristin Ratliff, RN, United States Air Force, pediatric intensive care unit nurse, two-time de-ployed to Iraq, suffered a traumatic brain injury af-ter being hit broadside by a truck on her way home from work at San Anto-nios huge Lackland Air Force Base hospital. Kline said, Watching her smile and hearing her laugh today gives us the greatest hope. People ask her every day, How is your daughter doing? She simply stops and reects and thanks God every day that she is here at all. She considers all that she has endured on this tremen-dously long journey back and then she smiles and says, She is awesome!

Joe Briski and Dave Jackson kept the grille going, and Joyce Briski and Olive Jackson kept the food line moving. There is one ticket left for the Mid-life Crisis Dinner theatre outing on June 11. The next meet-ing for the group is on May 1 at the PLCC start-ing at 4 p.m. There will be sign-up sheets for coming events, and plans for the annual Sausage Festival will be discussed. The Pioneers will be meeting on May 15 at the PLCC at 11:30 a.m. We urge you to bring pic-tures, news clippings, anything from the Toblerera. This is a sub-division with a lot of interesting history. We will compile all the stories and anec-dotes of Placid Lakes in the hope that an eventu-al historical publication results from all our ef-forts. Betty Hardy has pic-tures of the Catsh Creek Bridge being constructed by her late husband and several other volunteers. The Dalton Gang de-cided to help stock the Manna Ministries shelves and will be presenting them with a huge May Basket, along with the Lake Placid Ballroom Dancers who will also be stocking their shelves at the May 17 May Time Dance with another May Basket. Does anyone re-member the real olden days when you hung a May Basket (usually with spring owers) at some-bodys door, rang the bell and ran like you-knowwhat out of range so you could watch secretly and smile. Thats what these two groups are going to be doing, bringing smiles to a lot of folks who need help. On that note, well go smile at all the ducks that chose this neck of the woods to bring up their families. They like oat-meal, you know.Tropical Harbor EstatesBy Arlene CloustonLAKE PLACID Christ has Risen, He has Risen indeed! echoed through the churches in the Lake Placid area on Easter Sunday as we acknowl-edged the true meaning of Easter Sunday. Each of us has the freedom to go to the church of our choice and worship as we choose. Later we enjoyed Easter eggs, candy, ow-ers and Easter dinner. In our park, the Easter ham dinner was served at 4 p.m. in the clubhouse. We saluted the U.S. ag and said the pledge, fol-lowed by Marilyn Cromer saying Grace. We then sat down to decorated ta-bles. Peggy Sue Teague called table numbers for us to help ourselves from the tables of side dish-es brought by every-one. More than 100 peo-ple enjoyed the meal after which beautiful potted plants were given away for door prizes. Joan Rau and all her volunteers put on a beautiful dinner. Monday Morning Coffee Meeting was host-ed by Julie and Fred Foland with the help of their visiting daughter, Micah. Peggy Sue Teague emceed the get-togeth-er. The only birthday we had was Marilyn Cromer, and Ruth Ann Walls played the piano for us to sing Happy Birthday to her. We also sang Happy Anniversary to Donna and Kendall Kilbride, who had just come back from Australia. April activities are over and May is starting with the Mens Pancake Breakfast on May 3. Dont forget to bring your place setting and enjoy those pancakes. Peggy Sue mentioned the Red Hats luncheon on May 8 at Jaxsons on the deck at 11:30. That sounds like fun! Carol Noel was asked to make her sunshine re-port and were asked to sign the Thinking of You card for the Wahls, espe-cially Pat recovering from a bone marrow trans-plant. Carol asked Luetta Kiger to tell us about Evelyn Guiney. She said Evelyn had passed away at 1:30 a.m. Monday, which we all were sad to hear. Memorial arrange-ments will be made for here. James Dean had a heart attack at home in Pennsylvania after they arrived home from Tropical Harbor. April 22 Ladies Coffee was made by Carolyn Reece. Wilma Miller treated with homemade Monkey Bread (coffee cake). Marilyn Cromer led the meeting. First the dis-cussion was nancial and next were the activities coming up in May. The last Homeowners Association meeting of the season is May 5. It will resume in September. May 6 will be the mens breakfast out at the Truck Stop with Charlie Price hosting. May 13 will be the noon carry-in lunch in the clubhouse. May 20 will be the ladies lunch out and the Mustangs lunch out. May 26 will be Memorial Day, so a picnic lunch will be planned. During the summer, all active activities con-tinue. Emily Snider asks that people interested in shufing come down to the shufeboard court. If interested, call Emily at 465-2097. The pool exercisers always exer-cise in the pool, weather permitting, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. At 10:30 we walk in the pool until 11, after which ex-ercise starts, led by Dee Ziegler, Ingrid Taft and Marysue Willeke. Ralph and Kay Webers granddaughter has won the Nebraska State Bowling Tournament for her age group. The 12-year-old will compete at the national event in Buffalo, N.Y. in July. The prizes are scholarship money for college. She lives in Omaha with her parents and three broth-ers, who are all bowlers. Genius is 1 percent in-spiration and 99 perent perspiration. Thomas A.

That money was used to purchase 48 gift cards in the amount of $25 each. Arbelo and a delegation of fellow Purple Heart medal recipients presented the gift cards to Highlands County Veterans Service Of cer Denis Williams in a brief ceremony Wednesday. Its important that we step up and help our fellow veterans when they are in need, Arbelo said. Thats where we partner with the VSO of ce and the staff here. Theyre trained to identify need and to get these cards in the hands of veterans who really need the help. Williams had high praise for the Purple Heart chapter and its efforts. This is a great bunch of guys who are always willing to help their fellow veterans, she said. Their kindness will go a long way in helping others.

T eachers Charlene Smith and Stephanie Da vis, along with their students, were given the royal tr eatment in the privacy of their own little nook at the restaurant, starting with a guided tour through the kitchen by Olive Garden manager Lorenzo Ortiz. As the students learned their way around the soup station, sauce and dish washing stations, their tummies gr ew rumbly with the smells of Italian favorites. The Pasta for Pennies fundraiser contest is open to all Highlands County schools. This year, howev er, Fred Wild was the sole par ticipant in the county. Though they had no competition outside the school, FWE students put on their game faces for the fundraiser to see who could come out on top. Originally, there was only supposed to be one class winner, but (it) was so close with the fundrais ing dollars that they let us both shar e the win this year, said Davis. Students raised approx imately $3,000 during the P asta for Pennies fund raiser. The money raised will go dir ectly to the Leu kemia and Lymphoma Society to benet those cur rently battling the two diseases One of the students had a very personal reason to work to raise funds and was very proud of his class and fellow fundraisers. My cousin Rebecca (Bishop) had leukemia. She had treatment for four years. Now she is do ing very good, said third gr ader Teddy Peterson. I was glad when I heard we won. Im going to try to do this again next year in fourth grade, said Pe terson. S tudents Ryan Scott, Evy Tumbleston and Tori Alt man also worked extra har d to raise funds for the event. Scott mowed nearly 10 yards in a two-week pe riod to raise money. I think it was almost $70 I raised. It was fun, said Scott. Tumbleston enlisted the help of Lorida Church of the Brethren church fam ily for donations during thr ee services, and Altman got some help from pa trons of one of Sebrings other r estaurants. My mom works at Dees Place. I went with her and helped clean up tables and stuff like that. I asked people to donate each time I went, said Altman. Between the two class es, $700 was raised nearly a thir d of the entire schools fundraising ef forts. The two classes enjo yed spaghetti and meat sauce, breadsticks and salad dur ing their private lunch.

www.newssun.comWednesday, April 30, 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 VIEWWe think the proposed target range at the countys clay pit on County Road 17A in Avon Park is a good idea. For one thing, it will bring in money from outside the county that is currently headed out. For another, what is now an abandoned, overgrown and ugly site will be brought back to life and put to use. Highlands County can certainly use a safe gun range overseen by National Rie Association certi ed personnel. Gun owners need a place where they practice and have fun. Parents need a place where they can teach their children how to shoot and handle a gun safely. The 4-H Club had to disband its gun program because of the lack of a facility. Currently, the nearest ranges are in north Polk and Okeechobee counties. The idea of a gun range, however, is not original to us. Jeri Canale and Steve Marabel, co-owners of Boom Boom Guns & Ammo, were the individuals who introduced it to the county commission. Not only that, but they told the News-Sun they had done their due diligence rst contacting the NRA to get an insurance rider; checking with the department of environmental protection, OSHA and the countys planning and zoning advisory board. We have issues with what happened next. From our perspective, Canale and Marabel had earned the chance to ful ll their proposal. After all, if not for them, no one would have thought of it. Instead, the commission asked for letters of interest, and then for bids from anyone interested in the project. So now there are three competitors: Canale and Marabel; the Heartland Gun Club; and one from a group in Avon Park that identi es itself as The Team, which includes Avon Park City Councilman Garrett Anderson, who owns an ammunition manufacturing business. Of course, we support the bidding process. We know how important it is in keeping the countys business honest and fair. If the gun range had been the county commissions idea, we would be insisting on doing things by the book. But this is a different situation. The only nancial issue regards the real estate itself. Will it be leased, or offered for sale? We dont yet know. Given that it was Canale and Marabels idea, that they invested time and effort and are not asking the county for funding of any kind, we wonder why the hold up and why the county felt the need to complicate the process. The county commission should support ideas that bring economic development opportunities to the county, not throw up road blocks.In the past year, I have quietly watched two young mothers come to grips with having to watch their children deal with this terrible disease called cancer. The pictures I saw recently posted on Facebook of Jackie Jackson and her teenage daughter Jade can just break your heart. Jade sits in a chair without the smile that is so familiar to those who know and love her. The missing smile alone is enough to let you know she is hurting and doesnt feel well. Then you look at Jackies face and what you see is a mothers love and concern for her young child. I dont know Jackie personally. I probably know her husband a little better, but only because I remember Greg from school. They are both much younger than myself. Regardless, I have come across Jackie in various ways since Jades diagnosis early last year and have watched them both as the news goes up and down. I have also watched and learned from Mandy Guthrie, Jackies sister, who has been quite open about the feelings of the family as they travel Jades Journey. Mandy has done a wonderful job of keeping friends informed of what Jade and the family are going through. She, of course, shares some of her own personal thoughts. Some of the emotions are raw, but everything that is written is from the heart and as open as the family wants it to be. Mandy will be with Jackie and Jade, as well as other members of the Jackson family, at Friday evenings opening ceremonies of the Avon Park Relay for Life at the Avon Park High School football eld. The opening ceremony is at 6 p.m. Another young woman I have admired from afar has been my second cousin, Candace Yaklich. Candaces daughter, Cedar, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at just 6 months of age. It was found when Cedars tiny feet became red hot and swollen. Tests revealed the cancerous tumor growing around her spine, pinching off the spinal cord. As a result, this sweet baby is now paralyzed. Like Mandy has done with Jade, Candaces husband Andrew has done a wonderful job keeping everyone informed of Cedars journey. Pictures have been posted to show the various events in their timeline. One in particular shows Cedar all wrapped up and the words Cancer Fears Me on the side of her head. Like Jade, Cedar is nearly always smiling in the pictures that are shared. With IVs and ledes running from her tiny little body, she is all smiles and twinkling eyes. The same for her parents, though once in a while you can see the stress they face through their smiles. Then, of course, their families are also affected. Jade has a sister and two brothers and countless cousins and friends who continue to cheer her on. Cedar, who celebrated her rst birthday in January, has two older brothers and a huge number of cousins and friends who are in her corner in this battle. Mandy, Jackie, Candace, Andrew and, of course, Jade and Cedar are proof that this terrible thing called cancer has a face, an all too familiar face. While most of us see their smiles and the optimism, you know that underneath are struggles and pain. They are all people of faith. They not only put their trust in the doctors who treat their loved ones, but, most important, put their faith in God. Last year, I had every intention of taking a break from Relay for Life. That was before I learned of Jades and later Cedars diagnosis. In reality, these ladies and their families are not taking a break from their worries or their diagnosis, so why should I take a break? Instead, Ill be out there Friday night. Maybe not walking with a team, but Ill be busy as a member of the Relay committee. I wont take a break this year as planned. And if the good Lords willing, I wont try to take a break in the future. We all need to do what we can until a cure is found for Cedar, for Jade and for the countless others both young and old who are diagnosed with cancer. Come join me Friday night at the Avon Park High School football eld. Do something for Cedar and Jade.Romona Washington is publisher of the NewsSun.

Highlands County Sher iffs Ofce, Sebring Police D epartment, Sebring Fire Department or Highlands County Emergency Medi cal Services ever want to see If they do, however, they hope Tuesdays mock emergency will have giv en them some practice towards preparation. All went well, said Nell Hays, public information ofcer for the Sheriffs Of ce, who also acted as designated spokesperson to media during the exer cise. We hope we learned something. ( Well) nd out what we can do well and what we can do bet ter. S usan Reed, market ing director for HRMC, said the hospital holds emergency drills twice each year in coordina tion with law enforcement and emer gency response agencies. She said it helps demonstrate the hospi tal and staff readiness for extr eme emergency situ ations to both the Florida Agency for H ealthcare Ad ministration and The Joint C ommission, respectively the state and national ac crediting agencies for hospital facilities. Its to practice what wed have to do in a true emergency, Reed said. We make it as realis tic as possible so we can not only test but hone our skills to ensure that in re al-life situations, we are awar e and ready. That realism did not ex tend to panicking patients or staff who would not be involved in the exercise, Reed said. Participants wore vests or other indica tors that they were playing par ts in the scenario, and both visitors and patients would be warned through signs and through staff that they might see or hear unusual things. Polk County Govern ment, also participating in the dr ill, provided lightboard warning signs on U.S. 27 to warn motorists that a law-enforcement exercise was taking place in the area. Pete McNally, Polk Countys director of Emer gency Management, joined the ev ent as an ob server and consultant for the debr ieng. The ex act results of the debriefing were not released, and R eed said it wasnt likely that HRMC would share what it learned, good or bad. However, McNal ly said that cooperation is one key factor ofcials want to see in any such exercise. They seemed to work together. They had one voice with good informa tion and it was disseminated well, McNally said, r eferring to Hays public information briengs to the press. The Joint Informa tion Center is the hardest par t, McNally added. Through Hays, re porters learned that the dr ill started at 9:50 / a.m. when a shooter entered the emergency room. Through bulletins and a press conference, report ers learned that ofcers had shot and captur ed the shooter, but an ofcer had been shot. The hospital was closed during the inci dent, Hays said, and the public was war ned to stay away until it was safe. As Hays provided more information, she said ve people had been killed and ve wounded in cluding the ofcer and the shooter. The shooter was airlifted by Aeromed helicopter to a local hos pital where he was in critical condition, Hays said. N ames would not be available until notica tion of the next of kin, H ays said. Reed, as part of the drill, said hospital staff members thoughts and prayers were with all those affected and was grate ful to the responders for containing the incident. It could have been worse, Reed said. As part of the drill, she also thanked the commu nity for staying away from the incident and said that care was not disrupted for the patients: Our rst concern.

H e rst was hired in 2011 as an interim replace ment for Jan Brewer, who had been r ed from the post. Maxcy was hired on a permanent basis a short time later. Originally elected as a Highlands County com missioner in 1992, Maxcy ser ved in that capacity for 18 years. I was named county administrator in 1991 and he came on the year after that, said former High lands County administrator Carl Cool. He took the seat that for merly had been held by Chip Bor ing. C ool said although Cecil Skipper had the longest number of years served, Maxcy probably had the most consecutive years. Guy was a person that was always trying to nd ways to help the citizens of Highlands County. I never recall even one time that he ever did anything you would consider self ish, Cool said. Those sentiments w ere echoed by former Avon Park mayor and county commissioner Doris Gen try, now Doris Hawthorn. Guy was a very caring person. He always want ed to do what was right for the citiz ens, she said. I know it bothered him if he thought we had made a mistake. Former county com missioner Edgar Stokes said M axcy had helped him as a commissioner on a number of projects. He was a team play er, you know, Stokes said. He would listen to all the facts before he made any nal decision. Stokes said that both Maxcy and another long time commissioner, the late J immy Gose, had been good friends and had worked to advance is sues in the county. M axcy was a certi ed county commissioner through the Florida Counties Foundation, wher e he was a board member. He also served a term as president of the Florida Association of Counties. He was an active par ticipant in the Florida S mall Counties Coalition and sat on the Heartland Workforce Investment Board, the Library Adviso ry Committee, the Health C are Council and Rural Health Network, Heart land Library Cooperative, H ighlands County Adjust ment Board and the Canvassing Board. M axcy also worked as a liaison to the Highlands County Water Advisory Committee, the Histor ic Preservation Committee, Tourist Development C ouncil, Hospital Board and the Highlands Coun ty Insurance Committee. H e lived in Sebring with his wife Jacque. They had three children. He was the owner of Maxcy Group insurance agency in Sebring, and was born and raised in Highlands County.

BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterAVON PARK Homeowners Monday told developer Marty Wohl they didn t want apartments in their neighborhood. Avon Park City Coun cil members agreed and unanimously denied Wohls request to change land use on an 8.3-acre parcel, which would have allowed him to build up to 80 apartments in twostory buildings within a neighborhood of mostly single-family homes. It was the same message residents said two weeks ago, and the same they said several years ago to another developer want ing to build rental proper ty in the same area, Deputy Mayor Brenda Giles said. A von Park has vacant apartments in several complexes now, Giles said. Also, she said renters have complained about high rates and would prefer to buy if someone would build a house they can af ford. My thought on rent al property, (is) that it just doesn t y with me right now, Giles said. Councilman Parke Sutherland agreed, say ing 26 residents contacted him in opposition to the project more than had talked to him about the citys contract with High lands County Sheriffs Ofce. I feel it compromis es peoples way of life, C ouncilman Terry Hes ton said about Wohls proposal. W ohls owns land on the southeast corner of West Cornell Street and Flori da Avenue. Its zoned and platted no w for 36 singlefamily homes, he said, all with driveways opening onto adjacent streets. He argued that a single-en trance apartment complex would manage tr afc, and said the project showed no negative impacts on trafc studies. Wohl also said he would be willing to have setbacks and buf fers to reduce impacts to surr ounding residents. However, he said he could not afford to build houses cheaply enough for people to afford them without taking a loss, as he did selling an existing home on that block. Marien Venezuela, who said she bought that house at 508 W. Kirkland St. for $62,000, under stood that the remaining vacant land on that block would become sin gle-family homes. She said neighbor hood streets are already backed up with trafc each day from homes and nearby apart ments, despite what trafc studies said. There are negative impacts on us; not the city, us , Venezuela said. She said the only oth er single-family home on that block is next door If it sold and became part of an apartment complex, her house would be sur rounded by apartments, she said. M ike Roberts, retired Se bring reghter at 513 Tulane Circle, a block east of the pr operty, said traf c potentially could more than double with 80 units versus 36, even with just two cars per dwelling. I live on a busy area (of street), Roberts said. I watch a lot of near miss es. J ohn Sedlock, at 127 W. Bell St., has seen Avon Park Middle School stu dents drop litter on the str eet and play chicken with trains on their way to and from school. Al though theyve behaved better this y ear, more apartments would mean more kids crossing those railroad tracks, he said. Roberts also said hed seen a lot of apartment complexes in the city that didnt seem fully occu pied. W ohl said his apart ments would not add to the child population. However, Shirley Ashe of 509 W. Kirkland St. said while building apartments wont put more children in Avon Park, but it will bring more children to our area. Christy Caputo said she and her husband had bought 217 Tulane Cir cle two months ago with intention of r aising their children there. She was concerned with Wohls plan to outsource man agement to another company, which she believes would not maintain the property. Wohl had said he would contract with NDC Prop erty Management, the same company that r uns Highlands Cove, his apart ment complex behind P ublix in Lake Placid. He also said that under the nancing he hoped to secure from Florida Housing Financing, he would hav e to own interest in the property for 15 years, and could sell after that. How ever, nancing covenants would r equire any new buyer to run the proper ty according to his same standar ds for up to 50 years. His statements didnt persuade residents who had lived in the area for 20-30 years and liked their quiet neighborhood.AP Council: Citizens dont want apartmentsThere are negative impacts on us; not the city, us.Marien Venezuela AP resident Katara Simmons/News-SunChild advocate volunteer Linda Taylor (left) looks over a case le with Volunteer Supervisor Renee Grider at the Childrens Advocacy Center in Sebring.the court on what she feels is in the childs best interest, said Grid er. These are all children who have been in the cour t system due to neglect or child welfare issues, whether it be a parent on drugs or what ever. T aylor gathers all the information about the child and facilitates needed resources like counseling, dental care, medical care or mental health care, Grider said. She then monitors the child in her cases to make sure the court or ders are being followed. G uardian ad Litem ad vocate volunteers are required to meet with their childr en at least once a month. Taylor, howev er, does things a little different. Linda is notorious for meeting with her chil dren much more frequently, Grider said. Transportation of and for children is not mandated but she (Lin da) has no issues taking these kids wher ever they need to go and more. She takes them shopping, on weekend outings and various church functions in the local community, Grider said. Recently, she pre pared a birthday party for one of her kids The girl turned 18 years old and I know she spent quite a bit of money making this day perfect for this child, said Grid er.

TAYLOR F rR OM P agAG E A1 Unsung Hero award sponsored by the heroes at Agero BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterAVON PARK The city has been very helpful to residents about haul ing off garbage, but some non-r esidents have been taking advantage of of the citys generosity. Thats about to change, if Public Safety Director Jason Lister can enforce stricter codes. On Monday, List er asked for and got approval from the Avon P ark City Council to have Avon Park staff review the solid waste ordinance and suggest changes to make it easier to enforce. Among the problems is the fact that while the or dinance prohibits excessive dumping, excessive is not w ell dened. Lister and City Manager Julian Deleon said its result ed in increased disposal costs for the city Tires are the biggest problem, Lister said Monday. They are im ported, in my opinion. Lister said he s found single tires and pyramids of radials dropped off on the sides of city streets overnight, costing the city $2 per tire in dispos al costs for passenger car tir es, $10 each for semitrailer tires and $15 each for tractor tires. Lister said the only way to take tires off rims is with a commercial tire changer, so he suspects many of the tires are be ing dumped by commercial operations trying to sav e themselves money by dropping the costs on the city. Once the tires are re moved, he said, another pile is ther e the next day. Tire appear magically overnight, Deleon said. Deleon said the city has been hauling the tires to a recycling facil ity in Fort Pierce to the tune of $4,000 to $7,000 per month. Lister would like to pr ohibit all tires from neighborhood pick up. The city has also seen ex cessive construction debris and yard debris, especially from homes outside the city limits, Deleon said. Lister said city of cers have led criminal dumping char ges when they catch someone in the act of bringing in re fuse from outside the city but the language on city rules are very loose. For example, if a resident puts a large pile of yard debris on the curb, the only thing the city can do is measure it. If its more than 12 cubic yards, the city can charge more for it. Often, however, resi dents report that they didn t place the pile there and didnt authorize anyone to do it, leaving the city with no one to charge, Lister said. Councilman Garrett Anderson also said some communities have used a community drop-off point for all nearby res idents yard waste. It increases the size of piles and makes it har d for city ofcials to gauge wheth er or not someone is dumping too much. H owever, Lister also said that small piles in front of every home on a block can mean more wear on the claw truck. The driver has to pull for ward, stop, set the outrigger supports, deploy the claw park the claw back in its holder, pull forward again and repeat the pro cess several times. I n other instances, hes photographed what looks like the entire con tents of homes furniture, appliances, cabinets and belongings piled up b y the street. One pile included a riding mower.Avon Park to beef up illegal dumping laws Did YouKNOW?In Florida, the bicycle is legally defined as a vehicle. Bicyclists using a public roadway are considered operators of motor vehicles and are responsible for observing all traffic laws. With few exceptions, there is only one road and it is up to motorists and bicyclists to treat each other with care and respect. Adherence to the law is the foundation of respect.

A8 | NEWSSS U nN | WW ednesday April 30, 2014 www.newssun.com came in at 2:10 / a.m. on A pril 21. Two deputies al ready in the area to provide security during the Hushmouth Flawda Eas ter weekend event reported hearing the gunre and arr ived on scene to nd Thomas on the ground with a gunshot wound to his lower right back. Thomas was transport ed to Florida Hospital Lake P lacid, where he bled to death from a perforat ed aorta. Reports said it all star ted because Thomas car was blocking trafc. Ironically, Sheriff Su san Benton has said that she has tr ied to get Hush mouth event organizers to apply for pr oper coun ty event permits in the past, which would allo w them to close streets and coordinate with law en forcement and emergency management for trafc contr ol and security. Typically, she would sta tion a command post and a squad of deputies to pa trol the area during the annual ev ent. This years event was not as heavily advertised, so she had two deputies on patrol in the area. Witnesses told investi gators that Thomas was par ked in front of 122 Crestmore Drive in a way that partially blocked traf c. When a silver Dodge R am had to drive around Thomas car, an argument ensued that turned into a ght between Thomas and the driver of the truck, then swelled to include a large group half from Moore Haven and half from Highway Park, depu ties reported. D uring the ght, wit nesses reported hear ing three shots and seeing Thomas fall to the gr ound. They also told investiga tors that the shooter was the dr iver of a dark-col ored car parked nearby. An anonymous tipster lat er told deputies that the shooter was Wiggins. A search of Highway Park turned up the Dodge Ram that was involved. Investigators talked with Tlepius Jones, who had bruises, lumps and cuts on his face as if he had been in a recent ght, re ports said. Jones admitted to the ght, saying that he was just trying to sur vive, but didnt recall any gunr e or see Thomas get shot. He did say that he saw Wiggins in the area, but not during the ght. Surveillance video from the Highway Park Li quor Store, next door to the cr ime scene, showed a man later identied as Wiggins parking next to the liquor store just be fore midnight, then sitting down and talking to an elderly man at the en trance of the store for over an hour At 2:07 / a.m., Wig gins moved his car to a spot near the cr ime scene. As the ght started at 2:11 / a.m. between J ones and Thomas, video showed Wiggins running to his car and reaching in side it, then running back to ward the ght, reports said. As the combatants disengaged, the victim and the defendant come face to face, the report said. Wiggins reportedly pushed Thomas, who tried to retreat toward the park ing lot. Thats when video sho wed Wiggins reach ing out as to grab the victims shoulder with his left hand while his right hand appears to come in close contact with the victims lower back area. Reports said the victim slumped over as the sus pect moved away toward his v ehicle, driving away as Thomas falls to the ground. The report said the vid eo showed a gun in Wiggins hand and showed that nobody came near Thomas after he fell to the ground. From a non-custodi al interview with Wiggins, deputies r eported he was caught in a lie because he said he never went back to his car during the ght and did not respond to the actual allegation that he shot the victim. The rest of Wiggins state ment was redacted.Staff writer Phil Attinger contributed to this story. Editor Scott Dressel ma y be reached at (863) 385-6155, ext. 516 or editor@newssun.com.

The obser vance began locally in 1995 after the then-Highlands Coun ty Clerk of Court Luke B rooker decided to join the nationally recog nized event. We had received a lot of calls the preceding year asking if we were going to have some kind of ceremony, so the next year we did, Brooker said. Since that time, dozens of local pastors, elect ed ofcials and others hav e delivered messages and songs as part of the 40-minute program. We try to hold it to a half hour, but generally it goes over a bit, said cur rent Highlands County Cler k of Court Bob Ger maine, who has continued the tradition. S lated to speak this year are Rev. Ted Moore of Heartland Christian Church, Rev. Matt Craw ford of the First Baptist Chur ch of Sebring, and Dr. Eugene Bengston, re tired, of Bible Fellowship Chur ch. A number of local of cials also will participate. H ighlands County Tax Collector Eric Zwayre is scheduled to offer the invocation, 10th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Peter F. Estrada is to lead the Pledge of Allegiance, and Highlands County Court Judge Anthony J. Rit tenour is slated to give a benediction. Another 10th J udicial Circuit Court Judge, An gela J. Cowden, will sing the national anthem. Cowden was one of the featured speakers earli er this year at the annual Blessings of the Businesses event. M usic will also be pro vided by the Fire and S teel drum band from Walker Memorial Acad emy directed by Leonard Cann and Highlands Little Theatres Joe Lewis, who will offer a rendition of How Great Thou Art. The Fire and Steel band will play twice. They will start about 10:45 to provide music while people are taking their seats, Germaine said. David Flowers will lead the crowd in a rendition of God Bless America. Flowers, a former county commissioner, current ly is the director of facilities management for H ighlands County. The event will be bookended by the High lands County Sheriffs H onor Guard, which will present and retire the colors. As part of the National Day of Prayer, an Adopta-Leader Prayer Lun cheon will be held again follo wing the ceremonies on the courthouse lawn. This year, the Highlands University Preparatory School that will host the event. Dubbed One Voice United in Prayer, it will be an opportunity for the community to come alongside local leaders and ofcials by support ing them in prayer. The luncheon will be set up in the gymnasium at U Prep on Persimmon Avenue across from the Highlands County Fair grounds. H ighlands Coun ty Commissioner Jim B rooks will be the guest speaker there. Mu sic will be presented by the UP rep choir and the schools new music and arts teacher, Vicknell Berrios, who will play the harp. Dustin Woods of Grace Bible Church will close the event in prayer.

LeBron James scored 31 points, and the Miami Heat completed a rstround sweep of the Char lotte Bobcats with a 10998 victory Monday night. James scored 19 points after injuring his thigh in the third quarter. He nished the game 10 of 19 from the eld and had nine assists. Chris Bosh added 17 points and Dwyane Wade battled through foul trouble and nished with 15 as Miami won its 20th straight game over Char lotte. The two-time defending NBA champions will await the winner of Brooklyn-Toronto series, which is tied 2-2. Kemba Walker led Char lotte with 29 points. The Bobcats played without Al Jefferson, their leading scorer and rebounder who has been bothered by a foot injury since the rst quarter of Game 1. The loss signaled the end of an era for the Bob cats. They will become the Hornets next season. The Heat improved to 16-2 in rst-round games since James arrival four years ago. This was the second straight year the Heat swept their rst-round series, taking out Milwaukee in four games last sea son. This was Miamis ninth consecutive series victory. Miami began to take control midway through the third quarter shortly after James gave his teammates a scare when he drove to the basket and his right thigh collided with Bismack Biyombos knee, sending him to the ground. James remained on the oor for more than a minute and concerned teammates began gathering around him.

One returnee and three making their rst venture onto the big stage that is this highest level of competition for the season. Classes 1A and 2A will have their day on the track Friday, beginning at 9 / a.m. with a lone Lady Dragon representing Highlands County, albeit in two events. Quiahja Williams qualied for state in both the 100-meter dash and high jump. The sophomore cleared 4-feet, 10-inches at the Region 3-2A meet at Berkeley Prep, placing fourth, and ran the 100 in 12.82 to place third and secure her spot in Jacksonville. She will have to kick it up a notch, however, as the times shell be running against are impressive. Top seed Alfreda Steele of Pasco ran an 11.64, with Deanna Hill of Lake Highland Prep coming in with a time of 11.73. There are two other sub12-second marks in the eld, so it will be tough, but one never knows what adrenaline may kick in amid such competition. Similarly, in the high jump, there are some strong numbers shell be going against, as there are four girls coming in the seed marks of 5-feet, 6-inches, four more at 5-feet, 4-inches and another four a 5-feet, 2-inches. The Class 3A and 4A meets take place Saturday, with three Blue Streaks earning the chance to take part. Gary Demarest is making his second consecutive trip in the discus and comes in as the top seed of the rst heat, with a regional throw of 149-feet, 10-inches. Im still a little short of where I was at last year at this time, Demarest said. So I know Ive got more in me. Which hell need to do if he hopes to come back with a medal. His seed mark is just eight inches short of the low seed in the second heat, but after that, the distances grow rapidly, topping out at the 189feet, 6-inches of top seed Freddick Jones of Central. That actually motivates me because it shows Ive got to work harder, Demarest said. The top eight nishes get medals and I didnt get one last year. So this gives me another goal to reach. Byron Cobb nds himself in a mix of eight other pole vaulters who are coming in with seed marks of 12-feet, 6-inches. Three others are just six inches higher and two come in with 13-feet, 6-inch marks, while the top seed, Carson Waters of Osceola, looks like the one to beat with a mark of 15feet, 6-inches. But with such a large group so evenly matched, it is just a matter of who breaks out of the pack and rise up the medal stand. And while Demarest and Cobb both have attainable measurements to reach, so too does Jordyn Blount. The Sebring junior set a school record in winning the long jump at regionals, soaring 22-feet, 11 1/2-inches. This mark puts him as the fourth seed for Satur days meet a mere threeand-a-half inches behind top seed Deiondre Porter of Tampa Jeffersons 23feet, 3-inches. Naples Tyler Byrd comes in with a seed mark of 23-feet, 1 1/2-inches and Pine Forests Daveyon Finkley comes in at an even 23-feet. Blount did injure a leg at regionals, which hin dered him from qualifying for state in the high jump as well. But head coach Cynthia Cook says he is healing up just ne and is ready to go. Jordyn is doing much better and is working hard this week on reaching his goal of 23-feet, she said. It has nally sunk in to him that he is going to state as a District Champ and Regional Champ. He is very excited as am I.Highlands track fired up for Finals Dan Hoehne/News-Sun lesJordyn Blount is fresh off setting the Sebring High School long jump re cord, and is seeded within reach of medal standings at state.

Both teams scored three runs in the 19th inning. Oeschger gave up 22 hits and walked ve, while Grimes allowed 15 hits and walked ve. 1922 Charlie Robertson of the Chicago White Sox pitched a 2-0 perfect game against the Detroit Tigers. Johnny Mostil, playing left eld for the only time, made two outstanding catches. 1940 James Tex Carleton of the Brooklyn Dodgers threw a 3-0 no-hitter at Cincinnati. 1946 Bob Feller struck out 11 New York Yankees en route to the second of his three career no-hitters, a 1-0 victory at Yankee Stadium. 1961 Willie Mays of the San Fran cisco Giants hit four home runs and drove in eight runs in a 14-4 victory over the Braves in Milwaukee. Hank Aaron hit two homers for the Braves. 1967 Steve Barber and Stu Miller of the Baltimore Orioles combined on a nohitter in a 2-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers in the rst game of a doubleheader. Bar ber pitched 8 2-3 innings and Miller onethird of an inning. 1969 Jim Maloney of the Cincinnati Reds struck out 13 en route to a 10-0 no-hitter over the Houston Astros, the third of his career. 1988 New York and Cincinnati hooked up in a wild game at Riverfront Stadium that the Mets pulled out 6-5, on a delayed call by rst base umpire Dave Pallone. The call resulted in a $10,000 ne and 30-day suspension of Reds manager Pete Rose when Pallone accidentally poked Rose in the cheek and Rose shoved Pallone twice. 1999 About 3,000 fans wearing Tshirts that said, $hare the wealth protested baseball economics at the Yankees-Royals game. The protesters turned their backs when the Yankees batted, then walked out of Kansas Citys Kauffman Stadium during the fourth in ning. The Yankees began the season with baseballs top payroll at $85.05 million, and the Royals were 25th at $23.8 million. 2002 Al Leiter cruised through seven three-hit innings in the New York Mets 10-1 rout of Arizona to become the rst pitcher to beat all 30 teams in the ma jors. 2002 Texas Rangers shortstop Alex Rodriguez became the second-youngest player to reach 250 homers a 10-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Only Jimmie Foxx was younger. 2009 Johnny Damon of New York and Mike Napoli of Los Angeles homered at Yankee Stadium, pushing the number hit there to 28 overall and 19 to right eld since the ballpark opened.

The injury only seemed to inspire James after fans cheered when he went down. After the timeout he buried a 3-pointer and a long jumper before a onehanded dunk to help give Miami a 73-66 lead with 4:51 left in the third quar ter. Miami pushed the lead to 13 when Norris Cole knocked down a 3-point buzzer-beater from the right corner at the end of the quarter. Charlotte never got closer than seven points in the fourth quarter. With Wade on the bench for most of the fourth quarter with foul trouble, the Heat went almost exclusively to James. The four-time NBA MVP scored 11 points in the nal period and Cole and James Jones knocked down big 3-pointers to keep the Bobcats at bay. Despite being without Jefferson, the Bobcats led 54-52 at halftime behind 12 points from Walker. Walker, who nished 11 of 15 from the eld, did a little bit of everything to keep Charlotte in the game. With the shot clock winding down on one possession he purposely red the ball off the backboard from just inside the 3-point arc and raced to get his own rebound and put it in. On the next possession, Walker drove the lane and found Biyombo with a nolook feed for a dunk. Before the game the Heat showed solidarity with the Los Angeles Clippers over the Donald Ster ling controversy. Like the Clippers on Sunday, the Heat ran out of the tunnel wearing their warmups, huddled at center court and tossed their white shooting Tshirts to the ground. They then went through their pregame routine with their red Heat warmup jerseys inside out, hiding the teams logo.

Preheat grill to medium. Br ush steaks with olive oil and season with season ing or salt and pepper. Brush both sides of steaks with Roasted P epper Pesto. 2. Place steaks on grill and cook to desired doneness. (For a medium-rare steak about 8 minutes on rst side and 6 to 7 minutes on second side.) 3. When steaks are nished, brush both sides one nal time with pesto. Serve steaks with dollop of unused pesto in center of each and garnish with fresh basil sprig Family Features Quite possibly the ultimate steak, the T-bone embodies the rich blend of varied beef avors that steak lovers crave, from tender and mild to bold and beefy. On one side of the T-bone is the let mignon. French for dainty llet, the let mignon is considered t he most tender cut, with a mild beef avor. On the other side of the T-bone is the strip loin or New York strip, a rm, robust steak that is naturally marbled and offers a bold taste. The bone itself also pro vides additional avor in the cooking process. With this pairing of t astes, it is no surprise that the T-bone is considered to be the best of both worlds by steak connoisseurs. For more steak recipes, visit www.OmahaSteaks.com. TEN TIPS FOR PP ERFEC tT GRILLIN gG 1) Clean and pr eheat your grill on high. 2) Lightly oil ev erything before you put it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking. 3) S eason your food before grilling. 4) S ear the outside of steaks when grilling. This real ly helps with the avor and juiciness 5) U se tongs or a spatula to turn your meat on the grill. Using a fork can damage the meat. 6) C over your grill as much as possible during the grilling process. This helps to lock in the grilled avor and will help prevent are-ups. 7) K eep a spray bottle with wa ter handy to douse any unexpected are-ups. 8) U se the 60/40 grilling meth od. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the rst side then grill 40 percent of the time after you turn over the food. This will give you an evenly cooked product. 9) P lace your cooked product on a clean plate. Never place cooked product on the plate you used to transport the raw product to the grill with out thoroughly washing it. 10) Allo w your foods to rest for 5 minutes between cook ing and eating This will help them r etain moisture.

We live together, and his child from another woman lives with us. I love my boy friend and his child, but one thing pr events me from imagining us being married: He has his childs mothers name tattooed on his body. The tattoo bothers me for many reasons, and Id like him to have it covered up if we ever do marry. He says he doesnt want to get rid of it. When the topic comes up, we argue. Am I unreasonable for wanting him to get rid of the tattoo? If that woman really is in his past, why does he need a constant reminder of her on his body? IN A STINK OVER INKDEAR IN A STINK: Youre asking the wrong person. Only your boy friend can answer that. He may not want to go to the expense or to experience the pain of having more artwork done. Or he may not like the idea that you are telling him what to do. However, if he has been living with you for two years, I doubt its because hes still carrying a torch for someone else. If you love him and the two of you want to get married, my advice is to accept him warts, artwork and all, because regardless of any romance in his past, YOU have habeas corpus. (Thats Latin for you have the body.) DEAR ABBY: I consider myself a social person and enjoy talking to friends on the phone. My prob lem is, when I talk to one of them, she will nev er let me get off the phone. Sometimes well talk for several hours, but even tually I have other obligations and have to go. When I tell her that, she often ignor es me and keeps right on talking. I dont want to be rude, but sometimes I have to say goodbye four and ve times before she nally acknowledges that I must end the call. It irritates me. I like talking to her, but I cant go on and on forever. How can I make her let me off the phone without hanging up on her or upsetting her? MR. NICE GUYDEAR MR. NICE GUY: The person youre de scribing obviously has less going on in her life than y ou do. She may also be a compulsive talker. The next time you talk to her, make the conver sation face-to-face and tell her that as much as y ou like her, you dont have the amount of time to spend on the phone that she does. Explain that when you tell her you must end the conversa tion, if she doesnt stop talking within v e min utes, you will have to hang up And then do it. Will she like it? No. But the alternative is that she will continue to take ad vantage of you which she has been doing be cause you have allowed it.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil lips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Witford Reid M.D. Board Certied Anesthesiologist Specializes in Pain Management PAIN 863-385-9333 If youve adopted a healthy new lifestyle for you and your family, you might be starting to miss some of your favorite meals to sit down to. Meals like pizza, for instance. Announcing that its Pizza Night is an easy way to get the family together around the table, but a lot of the chain pizza joints serve greasy, cheesy junk. Luckily, homemade pizza is just as convenient as takeout (if you know how to do homemade pizza right) http:// savingdinnershop.com/ ebooks-2/pizza-ebook/ and theres no contest that its healthier for you. How can you make homemade pizza convenient? There are several ways. Prep ahead of time. If youre planning on making Friday pizza night, keep that in mind through the week. When youre chopping veggies for a stir-fry on Wednesday, set aside some extra for your pizzas. Same goes for meat. If youre cooking ground beef and bacon for a separate dish, set some aside in a container for Fridays pizza. On Friday morning, before work, grate some cheese while youre making breakfast, and set it aside in the fridge for later. When you get home from work, make your favorite crust, get the sauce going and simply put your toppings on and bake. Or, involve the kids and let everyone make his or her own favorite pizza. Freeze it, baby. Another thing you might want to consider, is making your own batch of frozen pizzas. Make your favorite crust recipe and your favorite sauce. When the crust is ready for the pan, bake it for about 7 minutes. After the crust is out of the oven, allow it to cool and then top with sauce (the sauce must be completely cooled), cheese and meats/veggies of your choosing. Freeze for 3 to 5 hours. Then, wrap in plastic wrap, label and date. Voila! Next Friday, you can just take a pie out of the freezer, heat your oven to 375 and bake for 20 minutes or so, until the pizza is nice and golden and bubbly. I would recommend making a few of these at a time while youre going to the trouble, so you can have a stack in the freezer ready when you need them. When you serve your pizza, whether its Paleo, gluten-free or a traditional variety, put as many veggies and lean, local meats on there as you can and go easy on the cheese. Always serve with a great big green salad. Also try thinking outside the pizza box a bit with your combos. Top your pizza with fresh basil, gs and goat cheese. Or make it Thai and top with peanut sauce, chicken and bean sprouts. Why not? Get inspired! We have a couple of great pizza Ebooks you would love. The latest was just released this week, and it features ve crusts, ve sauces and 32 different pizza recipes. It even includes gluten-free and Paleo options. Tell me.

Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show since 2005, told his studio audience during Mondays taping that he will step down at the end of the year. Fergusons show airs after Lettermans, at 12:35 a.m. on weekdays. The move was no surprise after CBS announced that Stephen Colbert will replace Letterman next year. There was a time that Ferguson, whose show won a Peabody Award in 2009, was considered a strong contender for that job. But The Late Late Show has faded in the ratings, particularly with the arrival of Seth Meyers in February as competition in the same time slot. CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are consciously uncoupling, Ferguson said. But we will still spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much. He told the audience it was his decision to leave, adding, CBS has been ne with me. CBS Entertainment Chairwoman Nina Tassler said Ferguson infused the broadcast with tremendous energy, unique comedy, insightful interviews and some of the most heartfelt monologues seen on television.

B4 | NEWSSS U nN | WW ednesday April 30, 2014 www.newssun.com I was 7 years old in 1980, and that is when Mat tie Harris Johnson started working at Capital Regional Medical Center. S he came with experience because she previous ly worked at another hospital in Tallahassee. Mattie started out as a diet aid and did ev erything from building trays to cooking on the weekends. Mattie was then and still is a real go-getter and in 1981 she was promot ed to supervisor overseeing the daily operations of the tr ay line. It warms my heart to think of all the people she has cared for through food and nutri tion in their times of need. Ov er the years here, Mattie has received em ployee of the month four times and is kno wn throughout the hospital as Miss Mattie. In 1989, Delores Gosby Chaires started working at CRMC as a diet aid as well as the doctors lounge at tendant and is now my kitchen super visor and helps run the day-to-day operations of food and nutrition. When I think about how long these ladies have been here, I am amazed at their dedication to doing their part to help patients along the pathway to well ness. Ov er the years these la dies have seen a lot of changes from the build ing of a new hospital to adding two oors to the new hospital eight years after it was built, to a ro bot that delivers trays to the nurse s stations during times of service. I asked Delores what was her favorite meal to eat and being a fourth generation south ern woman born in Tallahassee she told me smother ed pork chops, mashed potatoes and col lard greens. I asked her to shar e a recipe for smoth ered pork chops so I could shar e it with you and this is what she described to me. I put it into measure ments that would be easy to use Delores also said, If you dont have any collard greens, any kinda greens will do.

NEWS-SUN SARA MOULTONAssociated PressSpeaking as a mom and a chef, let me assure you one of the nic est things you can do for Mom on M others Day is cook for her. Some thing sweet is best. And my candidate? Comforting, traditional rice pudding. Or maybe not so tr aditional. Classic rice puddings are made from plain white rice. The grains are very tender, the avor is kind of bland, and the color is white. In my recipe, which is made using black forbidden rice, the grains are slightly chewy, the avor is slightly nutty, and the color is deep purple. Once upon a time forbidden rice was said to be literally forbidden. First cultivated in China, forbidden rice was so rare and so nutri tious no one was allowed to eat it ex cept for the emperor. Today, forbidden rice is considered a de licious and healthy whole grain we can all enjo y. Like brown rice, forbidden rice is unpolished; the hull of the grain, a rich source of insoluble ber, is left intact. Its also a good source of iron and vitamin E, and a great source of the same antioxidants that put the blue in blueberries. I was rst introduced to forbid den rice six years ago, when it was still r are. Thankfully, these days its readily available at most grocers. F OROR BI DDEDDE N R R I CEC E P P U DDDD I NGStart to nish: 3 hours 25 minutes (15 minutes active) Servings: 4 %  1/2 cup forbidden rice (Chinese black rice) %  1 cup w ater %  2 1/2 cups whole milk, divided %  3 tablespoons sugar %  1 large cinnamon stick %  Salt %  2 large eggs %  1 teaspoon vanilla extract %  1/4 cup chopped cr ystallized ginger, to garnish (optional) 1. In a small saucepan o ver medium-high, combine the rice and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, covered, for 30 minutes. Let stand for a fe w minutes, then pour through a mesh strainer to discard any excess water. Return the rice to the pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 cups of the milk, the sugar, the cinnamon stick and a hefty pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer and cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 40 minutes. 2. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining 1/2 cup milk. Whisk in a large spoonful of the hot rice mixture. Add the egg mixture to the rice and cook o ver medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the custard coats the back of a spoon, 4 to 5 minutes. Do not let the rice pudding boil or the eggs will scramble. 3. Remo ve the saucepan from the heat, stir in the vanilla and transfer the rice pudding to a bowl. Cover the pudding and chill until cold, at least 2 hours. The pudding will thicken as it chills. To serve, discard the cinnamon stick and divide the rice pudding among 4 bowls. Top each portion with some of the ginger.Nutrition information per serving: 280 calories; 70 calories from fat (25 percent of total calories); 8 g fat (3.5 g saturated; 0 g trans fats); 105 mg cholesterol; 42 g carbohydrate; 0 g ber; 17 g sugar; 10 g protein; 160 mg sodium.

The highlight of the evening is awarding the Silver Beaver recipients. Thirteen volunteers that span the eight coun ties that the Gulf Ridge C ouncil serves, received the award that evening. Among the recipients were Daniel R. Walker and Peter and Karen Albert of Highlands County. The Silver Beaver Award is the highest award given to a volun teer on the Council level. I t was introduced in 1931. Recipients of this award are volunteers that have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the Council. The Silver Beaver is an award given to those who implement the Scouting program and perform community ser vice through hard work, self -sacr ice, dedication, and many years of ser vice. It is given to those who do not activ ely seek it.TOPS 632LAKE PLACID The TOPS 632 program last week was given by Elaine Orr, who pointed out how different countries eat and still seem to stay thinner than Americans. They are healthier, too. Chamomile tea is good for you along with co conut oil, ginger, mushrooms, caraway seeds, sage and, in China, they eat tomatoes to prevent depression. Because of that pro gram the Yess this coming week are mushrooms and Chamomile tea. The No No is left-over Easter candy. After a wonderful hol iday the habit of a net loss tur ned into a net gain, the third one this year. Members are de termined to change that. V i Christian was the best loser this week. The club had two guests, Kathy and Sharon. They are leaving for the north right away. Mary Lou Liljas name was drawn for the travel gift. Leader Judy OBoyle had a discussion on what members do when they become discour aged. Everyone agreed that coming to the TOPS club was very important for the support and en couragement found here.

Kline has writ ten three childrens books along with an autobiog raphy about her daughter that is av ailable on Ama zon.com. The name of the book is Home of the Brave, which is a true story of courage, determination and hope. The basis for this story is two-fold. First, it is imperative to bring to light a desperate need for rehabilitation facilities that will more efcient ly serve todays men and women v eterans who are wounded and/or disabled. Second, an example of precisely why such a need has become imperative is based on the true sto ry of an Air Force nurse. If she could only speak, she would likely tell in great detail why proper housing and more individualized care for todays veterans is sorely needed. Major Kristin Ratliff, RN, United States Air Force, pediatric intensive care unit nurse, two-time de ployed to Iraq, suffered a tr aumatic brain injury af ter being hit broadside by a tr uck on her way home from work at San Anto nios huge Lackland Air F orce Base hospital. Kline said, Watching her smile and hearing her laugh today gives us the greatest hope. People ask her every day, How is your daughter doing? She simply stops and reects and thanks God every day that she is here at all. She considers all that she has endured on this tremen dously long journey back and then she smiles and says, She is awesome!
