Texas-based auction BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING The item comes up on the agenda under business from the Attorney for the Board of County Commissioners and there is no backup material listed on the countys Website, but the item of samesex marriage insurance coverage is slated be brought before Highlands County commissioners at their Tuesday meeting. The hotly debated issue reportedly came to light after Highlands County Assistant Administrator Randall Vosburg inquired about coverage for him and his spouse and was told that the current county policy already covers such unions. There apparently are several other county employees who are considering taking advantage of coverage for their samesex partners.

Now that hes stepped down from the post, the former dean hasnt dis counted the possibility of getting back into teaching he did hav e one directed independent study student in music theor y this y ear. I do miss the classroom, he said Friday at his r etir ement party after 32 years at SFSC. In my hear t of hear ts, Im probably still a teacher. However, with Flor idas Deferred Retirement Option Plan, he can t go back to SFSC to teach for at least a year. During that time, he plans to get back to composition, which is also one of his passions. He feels like hes leav ing the program in good hands no w that Cinby Garren has been named to succeed him as Cultural Programs director. Between her experience and person ality, he hopes the community will embrace her She will bring the program to another level. Its good to leave with that feeling, Andrews said. H e also takes pr ide in the fact that former SFSC president Catherine Cornelius budgeted $50,000 to secure v e sho ws when the program started in 1984 to now hosting a variety of drama, music, comedians and other perfor mances. S he said he wasn t sure about going to Atlanta for conferences to book talent, but she would assur e him that they would cover his classes: Just go. Her successor, Norm Stephens, continued to support the program, encouraging him to book acts for a smaller venues and with greater variety. Called the Ka leidoscope series, the pr ogr am continued to build and has continued under current President Thomas Leitzel. H e and both of his successors w ere on hand to wish Andr ews w ell. The quality of per formers who come to SFSC ar e the same as those on the coast, said Dr. Rulx Ganthier Jr., ophthalmologist and 18-year sponsor of Cultural Programs. He said it is impr essiv e that a small community can bring in such talent, a skill he attributes to Andrews. O ne help he said, was remodelling the main auditorium, because with better acoustics, higher-level talent ar e willing to per form there. The acoustics will attract performers who w er e hesitant, Ganthier said. That was a giant leap forward. S tephens said r aising the height of the y system helped br ing in theater productions that would otherwise leave half their sets unloaded because they couldn t raise them up out of the way for scene changes. Garren looks forward to continuing the good work Andrews did and adding more to it. She plans to spend the rst year studying what the college has done to see where she might build. One possible expansion could be a unique arts education project, she said. Bess Stallings of Wau chula was very pleased that Andr ews from the start, has always been willing to go to Hardee and DeSoto Counties to both give talks and per form to spread the love of music to the H ear tland. J oe W right, SFSC Board of Trustees member, said Andrews still has an artist in him wanting to branch out and do more things. He hopes the college will nd ways to use Andrews artistic talents. Andr ews got his Bachelor of Arts in 1970 at Manseld University in Pennsylvania, his M aster of Ar ts in composition in 1975 at P ennsylv ania State University, and a specialist degr ee in 1990 fr om the University of Florida in higher education administration, he said. H is r oad to administration was a slow transition, he said, with his teaching load becoming less and less until he became a full-time administrator in 2002. F r idays going-away party included gifts such as a wall-mounted piano keyboard with Andr ews name in place of the trademark, as well as a threefoot squar e por trait of Engelbert Humperdinck, cut from the pr omotional poster to remind Andrews of the fun he had working with the more discerning performers.Walker Memorial Academy hosts Music CampAVON PARK How to Speak Music is the theme of Walker Memorial Academys Music Camp.

I f y ou dont believe me, witness what has happened to some public gures when theyve pointed out what the Bible has to say on certain hot-but ton moral issues. There ar e some who ev en fear that down the line preaching Biblical truth on these subjects will be labeled hate speech and outlawed. First Amendment? What First Amend ment? Chr istians as a gr oup are routinely ridiculed by the media. Were a safe group to poke fun at, because our faith teaches us to turn the other cheek. Some where along the line our lo v e and patience for our enemies has been twisted into per mission to denigrate u s. Ther e are oth er things, but I hope y ou ar e getting the idea here. Christians feel as if theyre under re in this country, and many fear it is going to get worse befor e it gets better. In spite of all that, I maintain that we enjoy freedoms here in the U nited S tates that brothers and sisters in Christ can only dream of in other parts of the world. I can write every thing I just wrote in the rst few par agr aphs here and know the column won t be yanked because of what Ive said. Christians can meet openly and fr eely in this countr y without fear that ar med r epresentatives of the government will kick the doors in and arrest us. Most of us can talk openly of our faith despite the risk of someone being of fended. N ot ev eryone can say the same. In the Sudan, Me riam Yahya Ibrahim, 27, has r ecently given bir th to her second child. I n pr ison. The baby girl joins her big brother, 20-month-old Martin, in jail while their mother waits to be given 100 lashes. Af ter the baby has been nursed for two y ears Sudanese courts have sentenced Ibrahim to death by hanging. What terrible crimes has this woman com mitted? According to the ar ticle on www foxnews.com, she is guilty of the following: refusing to renounce her Christian faith and having sexual relations with her Christian hus band. I am not kidding. D espite her fathers familys insistence that she was raised a Mus lim, Ibrahim claims to hav e nev er been a part of that faith. While her father was a Muslim, her mother was an Or thodox Christian. Ibrahim has said that she was r aised as a Chr istian. This is impor tant, since it is against the law in the Sudan for Muslims to convert to other religions. Fur thermore, Muslim women ar e not allo wed to marry nonM uslim men, though Muslim men are allowed to marry outside their faith. Thus far I brahim has refused to renounce her faith. The article further states that the reason her son Mar tin has to be in prison with her is that the cour ts consider him a Muslim child and since his father, Daniel Wani, is a Christian, he is not allowed to raise him. If this all doesnt ap pear to make sense, its because it doesn t. Amnesty International and U.S. leaders have all denounced the sentence. So far, that hasnt seemed to faze the Sudanese leadership. Ibrahims situation makes me angry. But it also makes me count my blessings. No one is considering hanging me for being a Chris tian, much less jailing or whipping me. I t also makes me wonder why Christians in this country are sometimes reluctant to share their faith with others, when the worst thing that might hap pen is a cold shoulder. Or maybe someone hurts their feelings by poking fun at them and their faith. Pray for Ibrahim. And fellow Christians, dont be shy about sharing your faith in this country. For now at least, we can still do so.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at email@example.com Visit her website at www .laurahw are.com.

May you lead engaged lives that bring you fulllment and strength. May you be resilient and persistent. May you laugh more than you cry. Most of all, we hope you move on through your lives knowing how to learn from your mistakes because making mis takes is inevitable. The brightest and str ongest among us ev en the most spir itual and thoughtful all make mistakes. W e ar e human, after all. Making mis takes is what we do best. I f y our goal is to be perfect, youre already off course because the great cosmic joke is that getting things wrong is the best way to lear n ho w to do things right. It is the same with adversity. Every life has twists in its tale. Only the most un fortunate individuals breeze through it. W ithout challenges or sacr ices, a person becomes self-centered and bored. How can one remain excited about being alive if the sun always shines and nothing ever goes wrong? Mind you, we are not wishing problems and pain for our graduates of 2014. Rath er, we want them to have the ability to lear n fr om tough times and become bet ter people for the experience. W e think of the late actr ess Eileen Bren nen as a radical example of what we mean. N early killed by a hit-and-run driver years ago, Brennan spent months in the hospi tal recovering, became dependent on her pain pills. S he had to ght for her life in many ways. It was dark and terrible, Brennan said in a People Magazine interview after it was over, but also a time when she grew closer to her children and reappraised her life. Because of what she learned and how things improved she concluded by saying, It knocks me out to say this, but Im glad it happened. So graduates, we leave you with this ad vice: As you go through life, dont be afraid of getting something wrong. The mistakes you make now arent as important as what you do next.Remember, graduates: Mistakes are part of life JOIN THE DISCUSSIONLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

A6 | NEWSSS U nN | SS unday, June 1, 2014 www.newssun.com 3045825 Highlands County Clerk of the Courts Bob Germaine expressed dismay that he had been unaware about changes that Florida Blue the countys insurance carrier had made in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court decision which knocked down provi sions of the Defense of M arr iage Act. In 2008, residents voted to amend the Florida Constitution to ban gay marriage. State law already banned same-sex marriag es, however, Amendment Two supporters said the constitutional measure was needed in the event a judge might r ule to o verturn those laws. Four Highlands County insurance committee members Highlands Coun ty Commissioner Ron H andley General Ser vices and Purchasing M anager D anielle Gilbert, Highlands County Parks & Recreation D epar tment Director Vicki Pontius and Sebring Regional Airport r epr esentative Mar sha Lee voted down a motion b y G ermaine to stick with the Florida law. The committee then v oted to send the hot potato to Highlands County Commissioners to see how they wanted to handle the issue The matter on Tuesdays agenda is titled simply discussion of insurance options. The Florida Blue policy currently covers em ployees of Highlands C ounty as w ell as those in the Clerk of Courts ofce, the Property Appraisers ofce, the Tax C ollector s ofce and the Supervisor of Elections ofce. The Highlands County Sheriffs Ofce is under separate coverage. R epor tedly, at least some of those constitutional ofcers already have had private discussions about the possibility of taking on other coverage, de pending upon the decision by the board. This would not be the rst time that Vosburg has created headlines in the area of homosexual marriage. I n 2013, he and his spouse, Nick Santamaria, became the rst same-sex couple in P olk County to adopt a child. It was in June of last year they were awarded custody of the little boy by 10th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Charles B C urry. Kim Daugherty, a spokeswoman for Heartland for Children, the agency that manages foster car e and adoptions in Polk, Hardee and Highlands counties said at the time that the action had marked the rst time a same-sex cou ple had been granted a two-par ent adoption in Polk County. Adoptions by samesex couples were prohibited in Florida until 2010, when an appeals cour t ruled that policy unconstitutional. The state has not passed a new law addressing the matter, leaving it to judges discretion to decide on two-parent adoptions by same-sex couples. In other action, com missioners will hear fr om H ighlands County Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg about a number of changes planned for this y ears primary and gener al elections. A planned discussion about r ecy cling has apparently been pulled fr om this meetings agenda. COUNTY FROM PAGE A A 1 BY BARR YY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING It was in May of last year that Highlands County commissioners declined to raise the local tourist tax rate. The decision came on a 3-2 mar gin when thenchairman Jack Richie cast the deciding tally saying he wanted a better tr ack r ecord from the Tourist Development Commission boar d. At the time, some had suggested more revenue might be avail able since not every entity that should hav e been paying in was actually mitting the tax. C ommissioners at that same meeting voted to allow the Highlands County Tax Collectors ofce to monitor and gather the the levy on tourists. Since he began that task at the start of this year, Highlands Coun ty Tax Collector Eric Zway er said that revenues have increased by $23,000 o v er the same time a year ago. Additionally, 40 new entities are participating in the tax on stays of six months or less He made the report last week at a meeting of the Highlands County Tourist Development C ommission. When Zwayer took over the task of collecting the tax from the Florida Department of Revenue, he pledged to ferr et out those who are required to pay the tax and to look into charges that some landlor ds hav e issued leases of six months and one day to avoid paying the levy. He started with a letter informing businesses and residents that his or ganization no w is responsible for the responsibility of registration, collection, auditing and enforcement of the levy That was accompanied by an application to register for the tax. N ot only have business signed up, some have started calling the tax collectors ofce to see if they need to be on the list. Z wayer said that the beginning weeks appear to have been successful. W e are continuously trying to build awareness of the tourist tax and educate the public on what it is and if it applies to them. B y looking at the last four months, it appears that our approach is working, but would like to see an entir e y ears worth of data to see how successful the local collection option has been, he said. A t the May of 2013 commission session, TDC Executive Director John Scherlacher was asked if he could be mor e aggressive in bringing in additional tourists. Scherlcher replied that it was his job to nd trends and said that TDC policies came through committee recommendations. We can always change the way we do things, he told com missioners. At the meeting last week, Scherlacher said there had been marked increases on the countys tourism Website. H o wever, it is unclear if that has meant additional tourists and what if anything has changed o ver the past 12 months. Administration costs in the TDC have jumped over the years from 29 percent of the budget to 42 percent to maintain ofce and personnel.Tourist tax revenue up, but maybe not tourismBetter collection method likely cause for boost ZWAYERHERBERT WW EN DTHerbert GG usta ve Wendt, age 96, died on MM a y 30, 2014.

BY BARR YY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Flor ida Forest Service cr ews hav e continued to work wildres in H ighlands C ounty and throughout central Florida. Although none hav e been lar ge or particularly danger ous, they have been constant. T wo blaz es broke out in an area six miles northwest of Placid Lakes on Tuesday. The rst call came in at 3:39 / p .m. with a second at 3:57 / p.m. Both wer e blamed on lightning strikes and both w er e kept to about a third of an acre. Re portedly, no structures w er e threatened in either of the incidents. S ev eral wildres were reported over the Memorial Day weekend. The largest was a lightning str ike r e near Bluff Hammock Road Monday afternoon about 4:15 which consumed thr ee acres of property before it was brought under contrail. A second re on Monday afternoon oc curred in the area of P ayne and M arguerite roads. That one was contained to an acr e. The cause of that blaze remains under investigation. Two more res were sparked by lightning on Thursday, it was re ported, one burning 10 acr es of FW C property two miles northeast of Avon Park and another that charr ed two-tenths of an acre in the Sun N Lake area three miles south of Avon Park. A wildre attribut ed to a campre happened last Friday afternoon in the Sebring H ills Ar ea off Quail Street. No injuries or property damage were reported in any of the res. Weeks without rainfall apparently in creased the wildre activity said Florida Forest Service Infor mation Specialist Melissa Yunas. Longer summer days higher temper atures and a decr ease in moistur e levels lead to an increase ignition potential. H ighlands was not the only county affected. Fires also have been r epor ted in Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin and Glades counties o v er the past several days. Yunas said that as summer storms increase in frequency, crews have been pr epar ing for an increase in lightningignited wildres. She also urged residents who have homes in and ar ound wooded areas to employ Firewise techniques by clearing ammable debr is away from their property. Yunas reported that a homeo wner in Okeechobee County had damage to their shed because there were pine needles on his roof which caught re. In fact, green plants can also be a prob lem during a re incident. Many of the greener plants local to the area actually can burn more intensely than dry or dead vegetation. N ot only is it imperative to clear away dead plant mater ial, but you also need to think about the ammability of healthy plants within what w e refer to as your home ignition zone, she said. For instance, wax myrtle and palmettos may be especially danger ous .Lightning sparks several widfires ?"Ado s7 he Least LypcnsiveFuneral I Ionic in PolkCounts is offerinu thesame -,reat ser ices inHiehlands County I oo!!Grave Side Service$3,995Includes: Casket, Vault,& ServiceFull Service Burial$4,250Includes: U1 tier ices.Casket & VaultPa) N our RespectsNot sour life Savin-,sCremator} on premises.Phone 24 Hours Dail(863) 669-1617avvvv.casketstore.net2090 fast l:ducvkuod I)r.I akeland Florida

Though his father wanted to be buried in Arlington National Cemetery, his family had him buried at Lakeside M emor ial Gardens on Memorial Drive when he died in 1972 so he d be closer and they could visit him mor e often, Treve lyan said. S ome 40 y ears later, Trevelyan, now 83, has taken a pilgrimage to Arlington and Washington, D.C., along with two other W orld War II veterans from Sebring. It was one of the rst Honor Flights to take Korean War vet erans. They and two v olunteer assistants called guar dians came back from last Satur days trip touched by an outpour ing of suppor t from people on the way and ho w soldiers sacrices have been memor ializ ed. Their only regret was not having more than a day. It was too short of a time to give it justice, said David Hofstetler, 88, of Sebring, a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II. Im going to go back as soon as I can arrange to do it. He never got to check the Michigan portion of the World War II Me morial, and that was one thing he wanted to see the most. B ob Kroeger, 89, served in the U.S. Army and Infantry in the South Pacic in World War II, spending most of his two-year stint in the Philippines. Hof stetler said he served 25 months in a P earl Harbor communications station as well as dir ecting ships to their berths in the harbor. He would have nished in 15 months if he hadnt told his ofcers that he could operate and repair teletype ma chines, he said. H ofstetler said the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, also called the Iwo Jima Monu ment, was everything he thought it was depicting the six ser vicemen who raised the second U.S. ag on M ount Suribachi dur ing the Battle of Iwo J ima on F eb. 23, 1945. Kroeger said the Korean War Memorial touched him 19 statues in full combat gear depicting a squad on patrol, drawn from each branch of the armed forces and ar ranged on rough ter rain to simulate that of K or ea. Trevelyan said each face was meant to depict an emotion felt by those who served. It looked almost real, Kroeger said. But the Changing of the Guard Ritual at the Tomb of the Un known Soldier got to all of them. I t was v ery precise and the weather was cool with low humidity perfect y ing weather, Trevely an said. O ne fella told me earlier (I) better take a hanky. Im glad I did, Hofstetler said. It was a 24-hour trip. Trevelyan woke up at 1:30 / a.m. H e and his World War II compa triots got to the Bert J. H arr is Agri-Civic Cen ter at 3 / a.m. for breakfast provided by Bob E v ans Restaurant and Agero, and served by Boy Scouts of America. Trevelyan had been training his sleep patterns for the trip, said B r enda Richards, 61, who served as a guardian. She said she didnt hav e the luxur y of being able to retrain her sleep They left at 4 / a.m. on buses to collect people from Hardee County, then to Fort Myers International Airport. At each stop or tr ansfer they were greeted with a crowd of well wishers and applause. When the copilot showed up 42 minutes late, Trevelyan said, the whole plane applaud ed him. W ell-wishers continued at their arr ival in Washington. Tears o w ed, Trevelyan said. Very emotional. Very grateful. Richards said most veterans need or want to ride in wheelchairs, but Trevelyan want ed to walk even with two titanium knees H e said that aside from getting held up on the way back in air port metal detectors by his dog tags and belt buckle and losing his ticket briey the ight back was moving, with the plane banking over the Pentagon, in view of the Capitol and the Washington Mon ument, and the sun setting o v er the right wing. Crowds greeted them when they returned and by the time he ar rived back home and sho w ered, he got to bed at 1:30 / a.m. a 24-hour day. Richards said her father, a World War II infantryman who wrote a book about his exper iences died seven years ago Though she would have loved to take an honor ight with him, she was glad to go with Trevelyan, who talked about his father on the trip. She was supposed to travel with a differ ent veteran, but he got sick, she said. I t was a God thing, she said, because Trevelyan became a new friend. I ts a special thing, Richards said. Anyone who gets a chance to do it, (go). If you have a father, (go) with him. Michelle Dannels, marketing and so cial worker at Fair way Pines of Sun N Lake wher e Trevely an, Kroeger and Hofstetler reside also w ent as a guar dian and said she was impressed with how veterans were greeted. (People) came over to shake our hands. It was very moving, Dannels said. One thing Richards heard over and over was that veterans hope their fellow Vietnam veterans will have the opportunity to go on honor ights, to give them what they didnt get when they served. 3045837 SAVE $200 5500 Provided to News-SunIn true military fashion, 83-year-old Allan Trevelyan, U.S. Air Force veteran of the Korean War, retells the timeline of the May 24 Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., during a Memorial Day ceremony in Avon Park.

She took a few years off to raise her ve children, but earlier this year she went right back to work with ar ranging owers ... and back to the place she star ted. I n 1971, Jimmy Mills opened Jimmys Flower Shop. After 36 years of r unning a successful business Mills decided to retire and he sold his shop to an employee. In December, Tyler learned that the owner was closing the shop. I thought about it for less than a week and I couldnt put the thought of there not being a Jimmys Flower Shop out of my mind. I called Uncle Jimmy and told him I wanted the shop and he told me hed do whatev er he could do to help make that happen, she said. I n less than a couple of weeks, the shop belonged to Tyler. J immy s Flower Shop opened on Main Street. After the hurricanes came through in 2004, the store was relocated to South Lake Avenue. Tyler started working at the shop as a mid dle school student. She sw ept sidewalks dusted the shop and watered plants ... anything she could do to help S he learned as much as she could by watching her uncle and his staff, as w ell as going out on deliv eries. I didn t realize I was learning at the time, she said. She quickly learned how to put together a bud v ase and make bo ws. By the time she entered high school she was able to make corsages. Mills encouraged Tyler to go to oral school, but she had veterinarian school on her mind. She attend ed South Florida Junior (now State) College and then went on to A br aham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia. She married her husband, Raleigh, and they mo v ed to Donalsonville, Georgia. While ther e she found employment in a ower shop but it wasnt until their move to Moultrie, Georgia where she really began to learn about oral design. She went to work at Flowers by Barrett, offering to answer phones or make deliv er ies. She was honest in the interview, explaining she had nev er done design wor k. It didnt matter. They hired her anyway ... and not to answer phones or make deliveries. It was the week of M other s Day and she got a crash course on designing oral arrangements. W e were busy 24/7. It was crazy. There was always weddings or funerals and everyone decor ates their houses and doors They all take pr ide in the appear ance of their homes, she said. It was a learning experience that is now helping her with her own shop A bout 18 years ago, the Tylers and their growing family returned to Avon Park. F or a while she wor ked for Mills, but her pregnancy with daughter Carlyn was difcult and when or der ed to complete bed rest, she left work and became a full-time mother and housewife. The kids are all older and now Tyler is back at it. Now, her daughter Kyndal is helping at the shop in the evenings. Tyler has given the shop a facelift and has added gift baskets of all sorts to the number of oral arrangements she now offers. She has lots of ideas she is already generat ing for the holidays. J immy s Flower Shop is open from 9 / a.m. to 5 / p .m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and 9 / a.m. to noon Wednesday and S aturday.

A10 | NEWSSS U nN | SS unday, June 1, 2014 www.newssun.com 3045836 BUSINESS JUSTIN PRITCHARDAssociated PressMOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. About four years ago, the Google team trying to develop cars driven by computers not people concluded that sooner than later the technology would be ready for the masses There was one big problem: No state had even considered whether driverless cars should be legal. And y et this w eek, Google said it wants to give Californians access to a small eet of pr ototypes it will make without a steering wheel or pedals. The plan is possible because, by this time next year, driverless cars will be legal in the tech giants home state. And for that, Google can thank Google, and an unorthodox lobby ing campaign to shape the r oad r ules of the future in car-obsessed C alifor nia and may be even the rest of the nation that began with a game-changing conversation in Las Vegas. The campaign was based on a pr inciple that businesses rarely embrace: ask for regulation. The jour ney to a law in California began in January 2011 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, wher e N evada legislator-turned-lobbyist D avid G oldwater began chatting up Anthony Levandowski, one of the self-dr iving car projects leaders. When talk drifted to the legal hurdles, Goldwater suggested that r ather than entering Califor nias potentially bruising political process, G oogle should star t small. Here, in neighboring Nevada, he said, where the Legislature famous ly has an impulse to r egulate lightly It made sense to Google, which hired Goldwater. The good thing about laws is if they dont exist and you want one or if they exist and you dont like them you can change them, Levan dowski told students at the U niv ersity of California, Berkeley in December. And so in Nevada, we did our rst bill. U p to that point, Google had quietly sent early versions of the car, with a safety driver behind the wheel, mor e than 100,000 miles in California. Feeling some urgency, Google bet it could legaliz e a technology that though still experimental had the potential to save thousands of liv es and gener ate millions in prots. The cars were their own best salesmen. Nevadas governor and other key policy makers emerged enthusiastic after test rides. The bill passed quickly enough that potential opponents primar ily automakers were unable to inuence its outcome Next, Nevadas De partment of Motor Vehicles had to write rules implementing the law A t the DMV, Google had an enthusiastic supporter in Bruce Breslow, then the agencys leader A t rst, DMV staff panicked they only had several months to write unprecedented rules on a technology they didnt know. But Google knew the tech nology, and was eager to help Very few people deeply understand driverless car technology, said Chris Urmson, the self-dr iving car pioneer lur ed from academia who now leads G oogle s project. Offer ing policymakers information to make informed decisions ... is r eally impor tant to us. The task fell primar ily to David Estrada, at the time the legal dir ector for G oogle X, the secretive part of the tech giant that houses ambitious, cutting-edge pr ojects Estrada would trek from San Francis co to Nevadas capital, C arson City for meetings hosted by DMV staff. B r eslow credited Es trada with making suggestions that made the r egulations far shor ter, and less onerous, than they would have been. We quickly jumped in ... to help gure out what the regulation should look like, re called Estrada. While others attended the meetings, G oogle seemed to hav e a special seat at the table. B r yant Walker Smith, who teaches the law of self-driving cars as a fellow at Stanford Uni versity, described one r ule-dr afting session where Google not the DMV responded to suggestions from auto industry r epresentatives. I t wasnt always clear who was leading, Smith said. It seemed to him that both G oogle and the DMV felt ownership of the rules. By the end of 2011, Nevada welcomed the testing of driver less cars on its roads. G oogle however, was focused on its home state, where its Priuses and Lexuses outtted with radar, camer as and a spinning tower of laser sensors w er e a regular feature on freeways. I n many ways Google replicated its Nevada playbook: Frame the debate. Wow potential allies with joy rides. Argue that driv erless cars would make r oads safer and cr eate jobs. In January 2012, Google met with state Sen. Alex Padilla, a Massachusetts Insti tute of Technology engineering graduate. Padilla was intrigued, and agr eed to push a bill. Padilla said Nevadas law helped him sell colleagues on the need to act. N ev adas swift action, he said, sent the signal to a lot of colleagues that, No, this is not one we want to overthink and study for ve years before we take action. After all, who in Califor nia government wanted a agship company moving jobs out of the state. In March 2012, Pa dilla rode in the drivers seat of a Google car with Lev ando wski riding shotgun to the news confer ence announcing his legisla tion. I n the months that followed, various groups tried to shape Padillas bill. One thing that trou bled Howard Posner, then the staffer on the Assembly T ranspor tation Committee responsible for analyzing the bill and suggesting improvements, was that P adilla s legislation would let cars operate without a human present. P osner ar gued that lawmakers shouldnt authorize this last step until the technology could handle it. The response, he said, was that P adilla didn t want to do that which in my mind meant Google was not willing to do that.

www.newssun.comSunday, June 1, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A11 SPORTsS BY LAUREN WELBORNNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING The Dixie season is always try ing for a number of reasons. I f it s not the rains throwing things out of whack, its a lineup that falls just short of nine players. This was the case for two teams Friday night, so schedules were re arranged to allow Hor nick Homes and Rotary to face off against each other, seeing as how both teams found themselves borrowing kids from the bleachers. W ith six play ers lling in three empty spots on each team, the pick-up game commenced. The predominantly blue-shirted Rotary squad hit the ground r unning, with K evin Meyers drawing a walk and later stealing home for the rst run of the night. The momentum con tinued in the top of the next inning when Z ach Miller, Gunnar Leonard and borrowed teammate Trey Bender loaded the bases. Or ange-shir ted Solon Huter took one for his tempor ar y team to bring in another run for Rotary. Meyers then reached on a elders choice that allowed another Rotary run to put their lead at 3-0. Hornick would nal ly make its way home as w ell in the bottom of the second. Dalton Green and Kenny Palmerton, both Hornick Homes boys for the night, made their way into scoring position. Xavier Holdman was not able to make it home himself, but the play did allow Green to score with Palmerton stealing home not long after to bring the lead down to one run. Rotary responded with two runs of their own, with Blayne Hunt er scoring thanks to Ty son Bentley followed by M iller thanks to the efforts of Bender. H or nick continued to chase Rotary down Rotary, Hornick Homes round up and rally Dan Hoehne/News-SunCole Vanderpool lets er rip on this mighty swing in Rotarys Friday night win over Hornick Homes in Dixie Ozone action at Max Long. SEE ROTARY | A13 BY DAVID DEGENARONews-Sun correspondentSEBRING It was another great game under the F r iday night lights of the Max Long Sports Complex. The red hot Pool Par adise squad would face F ir emen for a third time on this night. Pool Paradise re mained undefeated on the season as they w er e victorious over the Firemen 11-7. Kamiron Taylor, the leadoff hitter for the visiting Paradise would put the pool boys on the board by hitting a rst-pitch home run. After a groundout to third Drew Morris stepped up to the plate to hit a single back up the middle and soon Junior Algate would then do the same. Nic Piccione dug into the box and swung with all his might to hit his rst career home run that would drive in two of his teammates to put Pool Paradise ahead 4-0 in the top of the rst. The bottom of the ame looked grim for the Firemen un til with two outs Drew S mith r eached second base on an error and then Keyshawn Hicks smacked a double off the fence that scored Smith from second. Hicks used his light ning speed to steal thir d and then scor ed on a passed ball one pitch later. The Firemen would cut the Pool Paradise lead down in half 4-2 heading into the top of the second inning. The leadoff man for Pool Paradise struck again as Taylor hit an other rst-pitch homer. D esmond G aines cracked a double down the left-eld line, and with two outs Algate would launch another home run to make the score 7-2 Pool Paradise. The Firemen, howev er, kept chipping away. I n the bottom of the second, Landon Baker and Keagan White would both scor e with Dustin Drakes two-RBI double. Pool Paradise would have a quiet third inning going three up, thr ee do wn so the Fire men would hope to carr y some of that momentum into hitting, which they did. S mith and H icks both reached on base hits and with two outs and White hit a tworun double to bring the score 7-6 in the bottom of the third. The fourth inning would be a quiet one for both teams as nei ther one could get any offense going. B ut the fth would be when Pool Paradise would start to run away with the lead as Kress er, Batterbee, Taylor and G aines all scor ed to give Pool Paradise a little breathing room with a ve-run lead at 11-6. For the Firemen, Cody Martz would score because of a combination of er rors and passed balls to make the nal 11-7 and puts P ool Paradise as the team to beat in the upcoming city tournament. TIM RE YY NOLDSAP Basketball WriterMIAMI For the entirety of the regular season, the supremacy of the Miami Heat in the Easter n C onfer ence was brought into ser ious question b y the Indiana Pacers. Then came the play offs. And the question was answ ered emphatically. The H eat became the third franchise in NBA history to reach the title series in four consecutive seasons, a laugher of a confer ence-title nale getting them there again F r iday night. LeBron James and Chris Bosh each scored 25 points, and Miami eliminated the Pacers for the third straight year with a 117-92 romp in Game 6 of the East champi onship series. Dwyane W ade and Rashard Lewis each scored 13 points for Miami, which trailed 9-2 before ripping off 54 of the next 75 points to erase any doubt by halftime. The Heat set a fran chise record with their 11th str aight home postseason win, going back to the nal two games of last seasons NBA Finals, leading by 37 at one point. Indiana led the East for much of the regu lar season, one where the P acers w ere fueled by the memory of losing Game 7 of the East nals in M iami a y ear ago. So they spent this season with a clear goal: Toppling Miami as kings of the East. The Pacers were two games better in the regular season. They were two games worse in the postseason. Game 7, this time, would have been in Indianapolis. The Pacers just had no shot of making it happen, not on this night. So now, the Celtics and Lakers have some company. Until Friday, they were the only teams in NBA history to reach the Finals in four straight years. The Heat have joined them, and their quest for a third straight title starts in either San Antonio or Oklahoma City on Thursday night. The way they played in Game 6 made a prophet out of Bosh, who predicted Miami would play its best game of the season. The numbers sug gested he was right, and then some. M iamis largest lead at any point this season, before Game 6, was 36 points Indianas largest deficit of the season had been 35 points After a layup b y James with 3:39 left in the third, the mar gin in this one was a whopping 37 86-49. J ames night ended not long afterward. There were the nowrequisite Lance Stephenson events, adding intrigue to the rst half. The P acers guard walked over to James and tapped him in the face in the opening minutes, stood o v er him after both got tangled under the basket, and got Heat return to NBA FinalsSEE H EE AT | A13Pool Paradise puts out the Fire(men) Dan Hoehne/News-SunDrew Morris is the picture of intensity as he delivers this pitch Friday night at Max Long.

This time, borrowed player Cope Brewer scored on Greens shot to deep r ight befor e Palmertons elders choice brought in B r andon Gonzales. Hornick was able to load the bases, but would not bring in the tying run before the top of the fourth. With Leonards RBI scoring Miller, Rota ry was able to squeeze in one mor e r un in the top of the fourth. In the bottom of the fourth, however, Hor nick Homes decided it was their tur n to take the lead. LJ Daniels, Brewer, Gonzales, and Green came up to the plate and back around to it to score four runs for Hornick, overtaking Rotarys lead 8-6. The boys of Rota ry would not be silenced just yet, batting thr ough the lineup and scoring eight runs in the top of the fth. Among those to cross the plate at this time were Meyers, Cole Vanderpool, Hunter and Huter. Sam Lieske, who normally plays for Elite Plumbing, and Bender, typically an Elk, both scored twice for Rotary in this inning to see the score not at 14-8. Tyson Bentley then blasted a solo home run in the top of the six to be the last score of the night, seeing now a 15-8 win for the Rota ry team. W e had to pick up a few extra players to play tonight, but both teams had a lot of fun, said Rotary coach Nate Vanderpool. Rotary will go on to play the undefeated Pool Paradise this eve ning for a make-up game at 6 / p .m. We were able to work with some of our pitchers for next year tonight, said Hornick Homes coach Johnny Evans. Were working towards a stronger team. A lot of our guys ar e younger, and tonight offered a really good lear ning exper ience. I m glad we were able to play without the rain coming in, he added with a laugh.

B2 | NEWSSS U nN | SS unday, June 1, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: My husband, Mike, and I are young newly weds and adjusting to our new life quite w ell. However, while we both come from deeply religious families, w e ar e both nonbelievers, which has caused some str ife within the family. Mike has sever al nieces and nephews (ages 4 to 9) who hav e asked us r epeatedly why we dont go to chur ch with them, since the whole family attends together. Their mother has made it clear that they do not want the children knowing there is an other option besides Chr istianity and I understand, since their faith is so impor tant to them. But I dont want to lie to the kids or ignore their questions. I s ther e a tactful way to answer their questions without stepping on toes? NEVER ON SUNDAYDEAR NEVER: You could respond by say ing, Your uncle and I hav e other plans . And if the kids ask what they are, tell them what you plan to do that day. If they ask why you dont come to church like they do, tell them that because they are children they need to learn about their religion. When they are adults, they can choose to go or not. While I respect your in-laws desire to prac tice their faith, I think it is unr ealistic to tr y to keep children in the dark because as soon as they hit school unless they are home-schooled or in a church-run school they are going to meet other kids who wor ship differently or not at all. DEAR ABBY : I am a male victim of domestic violence. I was traumatized for ve years at the hands of my ex. I suffer ed through name-calling, physical and sexual abuse. O nce when she was upset, she hit me with her car and dragged me across our parking lot. I tr ied sev eral times to leave only to nd that in my community there was no help for men in situations like mine There are womens shelters everywhere, but none that cater to men and their childr en. I ended up having to return home and things just got worse. I nally left with the shirt on my back and a few belongings. Be cause I couldnt nd help I slept on the street. I am now a survivor and attending school to become a social worker. I have been trying to raise aware ness of men as abuse victims but it s an uphill battle. Why? EMPOWERED IN CENTRAL WISCONSINDEAR EMPOW ERED: I ts probably because of outdated gender ster eotypes and lack of awar eness by the law enforcement in your community that women as w ell as men can be psychopaths. When your wife ran you down in the parking lot, she should have wound up behind bars, assuming the po lice were called. While female-onmale domestic violence is reported less often than male-onfemale violence, it does happen, as any one who reads my column regularly knows.

The Ridge is a unique environment in central Florida created by islands that existed a million y ears ago before the oceans receded and exposed the F lor ida we know. It is the highlands of Florida and the states backyard. The Ridge has one of the lar gest concentrations of endangered animals and plants in the U nited States. Polk and Highlands County are ranked 10th and 11th in the nation for the highest number of threatened and endangered species. Many of these exist no wher e on else planet earth. In addition, the sandy soil of the ridge acts as an aquifer pr o viding drinking water for most of F lor ida.

www.newssun.comSunday, June 1, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | B5 CHE cC K ON EVERYONE Provide first aid and a safe place for anyone who is injured or very upset. Check on and help neighbors. Call 911 or other emergency phone numbers only if injuries are serious or the situation is life-threat ening. Phone lines will be jammed, and unnecessar y calls can hamper rescue efforts.ASSESS SURROUNDINGS Check for hazards such as fire, leaks, chemical spills and precarious structures. Natural-gas companies ask customers not to turn off their gas service at the meter unless they smell or hear a leak. If you smell gas com ing from inside your home, call your gas company from a phone outside. Its important not to touch electric switches or use the telephone until the situation is corrected. Only the gas company can restore service. Plug appliances into a generator directly or with extension cords. Never plug a generator into a household outlet because power can flow back to the utilitys main system and injure utility workers trying to restore power. Always run generators outdoors to prevent buildup of toxic fumes. Turn on the radio. In the case of an emergency that displaces many people, shelter locations will be announced. SS T aA Y W aA RM If the chimney is intact, use your fireplace, burning seasoned wood with the damper open. Do not use the oven as a heat source. Never use a barbe cue or hibachi indoors; char coal produces toxic fumes that can kill. Close off rooms that arent being used. Close drapes and doors to pre vent drafts. Fill portable heaters outdoors and store fuel outside in a proper container. Ventilate kerosene heat ers. Keep heaters away from curtains, blankets and clothing, and always turn off space heaters before going to bed. Dress children and the elderly warmly, in layers, with their heads covered. Give pets food, water and dry shelter. Keep them away from anti freeze. Turn off all appliances except the refrigerator and one light. This prevents a power surge when power is restored.C aA LL FOR HELP If phone service is available, give your out-of-state contact an update on your situation. If service is spotty, ask your contact to call your insurance company if necessary, and to call your family and friends who may be wor ried about you. GaGA THER W aA TER Be prepared to treat, filter or boil contaminated water. Use hot water spar ingly. Most water heaters can r etain heat for three days. If the water supply is cut off, drinking water is still available in your home in water heaters, in-house plumbing and melted ice cubes. Use a hose to get drinking water from your water heaters drain valve in an emergency. It will be cloudy at first but will clear up after a few gallons. If pipes break or leak, turn off water at the shut-off valve inside your home. PP REP aA RE FOOD If you have a wood stove with a flat top and an undamaged chimney, you can cook on it. If the electricity is out, open the refrigerator and freezer doors only when necessary. Eat refrigerated food first, frozen food next and dried or canned food last. Refrigerated foods should be OK for about eight hours, holding a tem perature of 40 degrees, unless the door is opened often. If the power comes on within the eight hours, anything with an off odor should be thrown out. Food in a freezer of 12 cubic feet or more should stay frozen for 48 hours if the freezer is full and the door kept closed; that food will keep safely cold for up to 72 hours. Frozen food that has com pletely thawed especially vegetables and dishes containing meat, fish, eggs, cheese and cream sauce should be tossed out because of possible bacte ria growth. If the freezer temperature is higher than 40 degrees, throw out all food. Check this clip-and-save page to see whether your family is ready in case disaster strikes. BEFORE IT HAPPENS MaMA KE aA F aA MIL Y EMERGEN cC Y PL aA N Store important documents such as insurance policies, deeds, property records and birth certificates in a bank safe-deposit box. Store copies in your disaster-supplies kit. Keep a stash of cash or travelers checks at home. Identify a safe place in each room of your home and practice rapidly getting there. Best locations include under a sturdy desk or table, or beside a sturdy, large piece of furniture such as a sofa or bed. Practice home-evacuation drills. Choose someplace nearby for your family to meet. Expect a lack of transportation. Educate your children. Get a copy of your school districts disaster policy regarding transportation and the release of students. Keep photos of family members in your wallet in case someone is missing. Take a first-aid course. Learn CPR. Know where the nearest police and fire stations are. Know the route to the nearest hospital emergency room. Keep critical phone numbers and your insurance-policy numbers by your phone and in your wallet. Enter your ICE In Case of Emergency numbers on your cell phone so emergency workers will know whom to contact if youre hurt. For example, enter ICE husband John and the phone number. Find out whether any neighbors have medical or other expertise. Plan to unite if your neighborhood becomes isolated. Help elderly, disabled or single-parent neighbors create an emergency plan.

Check the roof, foundation, chimney and walls for cracks and overall condition. Contact trained contractors in your area for information on retrofitting. If you live in an apartment, know where your buildings utility controls are and how to use them. PLUMPLUM B INGING Family members should know how to shut off waterlines in case of a leak in the house. Label the shut-off valve clearly; its the first valve in the line after it enters the house. Strap your water heater (gas and electric ones) to studs in the wall with heavy-duty metal strips or to the floor to prevent gas leaks and possible fires from broken pipes. You can find strap ping kits at home-improvement stores. GG A SS All occupants should also know how and when to turn off the gas. If you smell gas after a storm or other emer gency, shut off the meter valve found at the first fitting on the supply pipe com ing out of the ground. Use a wrench to turn the valve either way until it is perpen dicular to the pipe. Keep a wrench attached to the gas meter with a wire. Call the gas company to get service restored. ELEELE C TRITRI C ITYITY Buy a portable, gas-powered generator for emergency electricity. Only appliances that can use extension cords should be attached to a generator. A 2200-watt unit can power a refrig erator and several lamps. Keep fuel in a safe, protected container. Learn how to shut off the electricity: Turn off single breakers first, then switch off the main breaker. To turn back on, switch the main breaker first, then the single breakers. On older panels, pull the main fuse blocks. HOUSEHOLDHOUSEHOLD ITEMSITEMS Place flashlights in hallways, bathrooms and bedrooms. Keep a flashlight, spare batteries and sturdy shoes under the bed. (Shoes will protect you from broken glass and other debris on the floor.) Evaluate each room. Ask yourself: If the home began shaking, what would fall? Secure appliances, bookshelves and hutches to wall studs. Mirrors should be hung on double hooks; do not lean them against the wall. Place heavy objects and electronic equipment on lower shelves. Use large Velcro patches or nonskid rubber shelf liner to help keep items in place. Place a beanbag of sand or shot in the bottom of vases and other breakable items to help hold them down. Use plastic, not porcelain hanging planters.

www.newssun.comSunday, June 1, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | B7 BY NICOLE WINFIELDAssociated PressVATICAN CITY Israeli President Shimon P er es and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will join P ope F rancis for an afternoon praying for peace at the V atican on June 8, the Vatican said Thursday. Francis had invit ed both men to my home to pr ay during his recent trip to the Middle East. Speaking from the biblical town of Bethlehem, Francis said: Building peace is difcult, but living without peace is a con stant torment. B oth men immediately agr eed, and subsequently approved the J une 8 date the Vatican said in a statement Thursday F rancis has stressed that he is not seeking to jumpstart peace negotiations, but merely bring the two sides together to pr ay He said he had arranged for a rabbi and a Muslim cleric to lead the pr ay ers, along with him. It will be a prayer meeting. Its not to do mediation or nd solutions, he told reporters on the ight home fr om J erusalem on Monday. Well meet just to pray, and then everyone will go home. But I think praying is important, praying together. H e called both A bbas and Peres men of peace The prospects of any breakthrough are slim. Peres, a 90-year-old Nobel peace laureate, holds a largely ceremo nial ofce and is set to step do wn this summer Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has expressed anger with politicians who hav e reached out to Abbas at a time when the Palestinian leader is reconciling with the Islamic mili tant group Hamas. Israel considers Hamas, which contr ols the Gaza Strip, a terrorist group. There was no comment Thursday from N etanyahu s ofce. The latest round of U.S.-brokered peace negotiations collapsed in April. Francis prayer meet ing falls on Pentecost S unday an impor tant feast in the Catholic Church which celebrates the descent of the H oly S pirit on the apostles. It formally marks the end of the Easter season, and F rancis is due to celebrate Mass that morning in St. Peters Basilica. Crossroads of Life,148 E.

On the outside it said, Save for bicycle. Now the inside was beginning to promise the fulllment. I t took about a y ear and a half to afford a bike that would really t my stature. I had a bike like that when I was a single mom. Id purchased bike shop bikes for me and my young son so we could enjoy the outdoors and get some exercise. Later, when my bike rusted, my husband, Ken said, No problem, well buy you a new one. Off to the depart ment store we went and pur chased a shiny new bike. But it sat in the garage unused most of the time. I was insecure when getting on and off it as my feet didn t touch the ground easily. Being a petite person, this bike simply wasnt a good t for me. However, my desire to ride never left me. Ken and I had met on a Christian singles biking outing; and when w e marr ied and enfolded our families, all three boys, mom and dad biked together in our neighborhood. Now, while saving for my hoped for bike, I al most talked myself out it mor e than once Yet, the money was coming together. I just had to stick with it. Sometimes were confronted with things life brings our way that would have us throw in the towel. It can be es pecially trying when it s a walk of faith God has called us to. Gradually, as time slips by, w e wonder and question if what w e originally heard was from G od after all. At this point, our excuses can outweigh our faith. B ut, G od doesnt want our faith to be wishy-washy. He wants us to have courage in the waiting as we read in Psalm 27:14, NKJV Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord! Id researched, in quired, and chosen the bike I would or der long before. When I began saving, I took the next step of faith. As I got closer, second guessing caused doubt that almost discour aged me. But, then, I summoned my courage, or der ed it, and took it home. The wind in my face is like a kiss from God as I ride. The com fort of the ride conrms a good decision. And as the pr opr ietor of the bike shop said, All good things come to those who wait.

B8 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, June 1, 2014 www.newssun.com ADAM GELLERAP National WriterThe 57 Chevy was still a year away when the launch of the interstate highway system kicked U.S. car culture into high gear. But six decades later, changing habits and attitudes suggest Americas romance with the road may be fading. After rising almost continuously since World War II, driving by U.S. households has declined nearly 10 percent since 2004, with a start before the Great Recession suggesting economics is not the only cause. Theres something more fundamental going on, says Michael Sivak of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. The average American household now owns fewer than two cars, returning to the levels of the early 1990s. More teens and 20-somethings are waiting to get a license. Less than 70 percent of 19-year-olds now have one, down from 87 percent two decades ago. I wonder if theyve decided that theres another, better way to be free and to be mobile, says Cotten Seiler, author of Republic of Drivers: A Cultural History of Automobility in America. Those changes whether its car trips replaced by shopping online or traf c jams that have turned drives into a chore pose complicated questions and choices.Trying alternativesEach day, about 3,500 people bike the Midtown Greenway, a freight rail bed converted to cycle highway in Minneapolis, where two-wheel commuting has doubled since 2000. Its still a small percentage, but more residents are testing the idea of leaving cars behind. A second light rail line opens in June. Street corners sprout racks of blue-andgreen shared bikes. About 45 percent of those who work downtown commute by means other than a car, mostly by express bus. That syncs with gures showing Americans took a record 10.7 billion trips on mass transit last year, up 37 percent since 1995. Theres a lot of people who want the less-driving lifestyle, de nitely, says Sam Newberg, an urban planning consultant and transportation blogger. They include Kimani Beard, 40, who used to drive for a package express company. Now hes a graphic and apparel designer who walks or bikes to a coffee shop a few days a week, with its Wi-Fi providing an instant of ce. I dont want to drive anywhere, he says. Ive spent my time behind the wheel, but I think Ive done enough. Meanwhile, some are rethinking the paradigm of vehicle ownership. In the suburbs just north of Chicago, Eugene Dunn and Justin Sakofs live four miles apart, but met only because Dunns 2005 Pontiac broke down. Dunn, 43 and a math tutor, takes a train to work. But getting to his second job, refereeing youth basketball on weekends, required a car he didnt have. Luckily, Sakofs, the director of a Jewish day school, had a Nissan he didnt need from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, when his Sabbath observance precludes driving. They found each other through RelayRides, whose app pairs individual car owners with neighbors looking to rent. Right now, I just need (a car) to get back and forth and make money, Dunn said.Testing the bondsCar culture is about an emotional attachment that can be hard to measure. A good place to start is Carlsons Drive-In in Michigan City, Indiana, where a car hop arrives at the window before you turn off the ignition. It de nitely takes you back to an older time, says Barry Oliver, recalling teen nights driving the strip and stopping here. Places like Carlsons were destinations for Americans embracing driving as recreation. As recently as the 1990s, Indiana had nearly 60 vintage drive-ins. Today just ve or six are left. Drive-in movie theaters, which numbered 4,300 nationally in 1957, have dwindled to just 350. Where does that leave car culture? Gear heads live here, says Todd Davis, a Lansing, Michigan native visiting the R.E. Olds Transportation Museum from Orlando. Away from Michigan, its not like that. But Davis cousin, Sol Jaffee, isnt convinced. Kids will always be interested in cars! I mean, cars are America, dont you think? But at Wisconsins Oshkosh North High School, enrollment in drivers education, no longer required for graduation or subsidized by the state, has declined 40 percent. Like other states, Wisconsin eliminated funding for drivers ed, raising the price of in-school programs. Todays young people often rely on parents for rides, says drivers ed teacher Scott Morrison. And then theres Facebook and other social media. While most students still look forward to the freedom conferred by a license, a small but selfaware contingent says it can wait. Ive never really needed to drive, says senior Ashwinraj Karthikeyan. Its almost like a rite of passage for people to drive, but I know offhand probably about 15 or 20 people who dont have their license.The futureIn 1939, General Motors captivated Worlds Fair crowds with a futuristic vision of technology linking highways and cars. But in 2014, Debby Bezzina will tell you that future is fast approaching. Bezzina, of Michigans Transportation Research Institute, has just begun to explain the technology inside her 12-seat van when a bend in Baxter Road interrupts, setting off a staccato beep that warns the vehicle to slow down. For nearly two years, 2,800 vehicle owners here have been participating in this federally nanced bid to connect vehicles with their surroundings so they can join drivers in decisionmaking. Meanwhile, on the institutes second oor, a Nissan Versa wired to let drivers navigate a simulated cityscape will soon be reprogrammed to make it almost entirely self-driving. There are bound to be complications as people turn over some control to their cars, says the institutes director, Peter Sweatman. But imagine, he says, summoning a driverless car you might not even own, being picked up and dropped off at curbside, and watching it pull away. Americas fading romance with the open roadAmericans and their cars: A love affair on fumes?I wonder if theyve decided that theres another, better way to be free and mobile.Cotton Seiler Author of Republic of Drivers: A Cultural History of Automobility in AmericaBOSTON (AP) A friend of the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombings was charged Friday with obstructing the investigation into the deadly attack. Khairullozhon Matanov, 23, of Quincy, was arrested at his apartment shortly after 5 a.m. He was scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Boston on Friday afternoon. Matanov, a legal resident of the U.S. originally from Kyrgyzstan, destroyed, altered and falsi ed records in a federal investigation, and made false statements in a federal investigation, according to U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortizs of ce. Ortiz said in a news release that Matanov is not charged with participating in the bombings or knowing about them in advance, but a spokeswoman declined to comment when asked if additional charges were possible against Matanov. Matanov knew Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who are accused of planting two homemade bombs that killed three people and injured more than 260 others at the marathon nish line in April 2013. He realized the FBI would want to talk with him because he shared their philosophical justi cation for violence, federal prosecutors said. Just 40 minutes after the bombings, Matanov called Tamerlan Tsarnaev and invited him to dinner, they said. Tamerlan accepted, and that night, Matanov bought Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev dinner at a restaurant. Following dinner, prosecutors said, Matanov told an unnamed witness that he could support the bombings if they had a just reason.
