In actuality, they allowed the coverage to continue by taking no action, defeating a pair motions to change the countys current plan. Attempts were made to disallow same-sex coverage by mirroring the state of Floridas 2008 constitutional amendment that de nes marriage as the union between a man and a woman. Motions were made by both commissioner Jack Richie and Commission Chairman Greg Harris. Harris motion went down 4-1, with Richies attempt using language recommended by County Attorney Ross Same-sex spouses to be covered by countyTwo motions to follow state constitution instead of insurers policy denied ELWELL BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentOf cials from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Tuesday that despite the pull out by Coast Guard of cials, their search for a missing Avon Park man resumed Tuesday.

The proposed tax, if approved by voters, could help the school district make overdue repairs and replacements among its buildings, buses and equipment, but not to its curriculum and programs. Thats why board members continued their budget workshop Tuesday. Property Appraiser Raymond McIntyre has estimated countywide property values have dropped to $4.8 billion $11.9 million less than last year. Superintendent of Schools Wally Cox is hoping that property tax revenue will come back up when McIntyre releases certi ed property values in July, but there are some cost concerns since student numbers are up and property values are down. He said lower property taxes could leave the district with a nancial shortfall of $395,013 in areas a capital improvement tax cant cover. While he expects the district to receive $2.19 million from the state, he wont be able to transfer $950,000 of the capital improvement funds into the general fund Katara Simmons/News-SunVoters will have a chance to vote on a half-cent sales tax increase during the November election to help with school repairs and infrastructure most notably the aging school bus eet.

Since 2010, it has been called the Champion for Children Foundation, and it will celebr ate its 20th anniv ersary on June 20. Kevin Roberts, one of those founders and current CEO of the Foundation, said the organization has far, far, far exceeded my expectations. I had no idea it would become a full-time job for me or that we would be able to offer so many ser vices or opportunities, he said. R ober ts, along with Ruth Handley, who was the superintendent of schools in and then county commissioner Doris Gentry ar e all founders of the Champion for Childr en Foundation. The idea for this type of foundation was born out of frustration for a need of some thing like this, said R ober ts. It is our goal, passion, desire, and objective to help the children and families in our community as much and as quickly as possible; the majority of our assistance hap pening within 24 hours of the time the issue is pr esented to us , said Roberts. We also try our best to help and donate to oth er agencies with common goals, such as Boy Scouts or B ig B rother/Big Sister organizations. The F oundation s stated mission is to help youth mature into responsible adult members of a global society ... It begins with pr o viding the best possible environment where each child can develop to his or her greatest potential. The majority of cases or situations referred to the foundation come from commu nity professionals or thr ough J eff Roth at Sebrings Children Advocacy Center. B eing a founder and CEO means R oberts has been with the foundation since the star t, rst par t time and then full-time as of 2007. Roberts oversees all day-to-day operations of the foundation, as well as a board of 10 dir ectors programs and fundraising. He also meets with potential families they may help and ser v es as a face for the foundation and its community engagement. F or the rst 13 y ears of his work for the foundation, he did not accept any salary because he did not want to take away fr om the or ganizations funds I just want people to be aware of the successful initiativ es w e have implemented into our foundation. We have helped thousands of people and hav e had an unbeliev able impact on childr en and families in this community , said Roberts. I o w e it to my board and their support and encouragement towards me ...they ar e humble, strong in their faith, and make sacrices for their work. I am also in debt to the community for their love and con tinuous support for the foundation, said R oberts. I o we so much to our board president too, Nancy Hensley, for her love, support, encouragement, and I am tr uly indebted to her for that. S he is a tremendously wonderful southern lady who has wor ked and stuck b y my side through all the initiatives we have made, Roberts said. Currently, the foundation is working on a pr oject called the N evaeh Fund, raising funds for a six-y ear -old girl who suffers from a Binocular Processing Disorder. The Champion for Children Foundations ofce is at 419 E Center Ave. in Sebring. Rob erts can be contacted b y phone at his ofce (863) 382-2905 or b y cell phone at 381-4040.

News-Sun Staff ReportAVON PARK An Avon Park man accused of using a truck to ram an other vehicle containing a woman and a child has been char ged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and hit and run. According to a Highlands Coun ty Sheriffs Ofce report, the victim said she and her 3-y ear -old son were sitting in a 2007 Chrysler SUV at 913 Camphor St. at around 9 / p .m. on Sunday when Christian Garcia, 18, arrived in a 1997 Chevy pick-up that belonged to an acquaintance. The victim said Garcia rammed the vehicle several times, then got out and made verbal threats of physical violence toward the victims husband, who was not present, the report said. Deputy James West noted mi nor damage to the front left corner of the victim s car and spoke to two witnesses that saw the truck ramming into the car. A little o v er two hours later, West found Garcia at 14 S. Glenwood Ave. in Avon Park. Garcias statement to West is redacted from the report, but West wrote that when he asked Gar cia to see the truck, Garcia told him he hid it behind the r esidence of another acquaintance. Garcia later produced the truck, which had damage on the left front corner consistent with the damage on the victims car. Garcia was booked on two counts of aggravated battery with a dead ly weapon (a second-degree felony) and one count of leaving the scene of a cr ash involving damage to prop erty, which is a second-degree misdemeanor.Man jailed for ramming car holding woman, 3-year-old LJ 1..I LJLI VLJ LJLI VPublix.it Q2'g experiences ved TruLink' HeE1 Medc la9 iPod Phone 0 WadStarkey.ANERIGN Ifnq h Ov cero,.'130Sebring.

The barbecue will benet a local family whose father died re cently, and an unknown clause in his life insur ance will prevent the family fr om r eceiving any payment. Barbecue plates, prepared by Dave Cummings, will be available for $5. Ther e will be live music from multiple bands as well as a 50-50 drawing, an auction, a best bike contest, Jell-O shots and roll the dice. Call 227-1911 or nd them on Facebook for more information.Benefit BBQ Saturday at Carlie Lynns for maintenance as the district has done in the past. In addition, the Florida Department of Education is requiring the school district to pay $1.07 million to hav e hour-long teacher planning periods at each school, $218,00 mor e in r etirement contributions, and $347,597 for the digital classroom program. Ther e is also a good chance the county will have to approve an extra hour of study at M emor ial Elementary School for reading. The standard was that any school in the bottom 100 scores had to do that. A new law being discussed would enfor ce that rule for the bottom 300. Memorial Elementary was within that bottom 300, Cox said, and the extra hour would cost $300,000 over the course of the year. (We) wont know until sec ond week of July if we have to do that, C ox said. Also, Highlands County no longer qualies as a rural county for education funding, so it could lose $204,000 approximately the cost of the districts four teachers at the career academy at South Florida S tate C ollege. Thats also a contingency, Cox said. Darrell Layeld, instructional technology specialist, said the distr ict will need to spend at least $75,521 on updated computer software, including Gaggle.net the students and teachers in-house email ser vice D iscovery Education video-streaming ser vice for uploading and downloading educational lms and Scholastic R ead 180, a compr ehensive system of curriculum, instruction, assessment and pr ofessional dev elopment to raise reading achievement of struggling readers in grades four through 12. Layeld said that the district has only updated Read 180 once in the last 10 years and is two to three years behind the latest versions. Reading Content Specialist Kim Ervin and Mathematics Curriculum Specialist Jenni fer Westergom said they would like to hav e the distr ict look at purchasing i-Ready, an adaptive diagnostic testing system that would help teachers design both teacher-led and individualized online instruction. As students learn more, it changes the tests to constantly challenge them, they said. O ne item Cox said he would ask the board to consider buy ing during their meeting on J une 26 is S kyward school business suite. Barbara Lancaster, manager of Management Information System Databases, said the program would cost $427,690 up fr ont, but it would allow the district to do online open student enrollment, take job applications online eliminate the use of time clocks and generate tax documents and other paper work for employees. It would also would allo w emplo yees to log in from off campus and would be accessible through mobile apps, as well as from desktop computers. Cox said there would be a cost savings over several years from using that new program. Meanwhile, he and Assistant Superintendent Mike Averyt, head of operations, have had to move funds around and made some cuts in the draft budget to make things work. Averyt said the draft Excep tional Student Education budget has $10,000 moved from the tr ainable mentally handicapped pr ogram to the physical/occupational therapy program.

Although pledging to carry out the de cision of my bosses, the voters, his ar guments are hardly impartial. F or star ters, Judd says, the three-page amendment is broadly written to allow certication of medical marijuana use by a physician for an unlimited variety of ailments. He is correct. The amendment spells out use to relieve a variety of serious medical conditions from HIV/AIDS to multiple sclerosis, but then adds or other conditions for which a physician believes that the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the po tential health risks for a patient. S uch wor ding is a defense attorneys dream come true. The purpose of this editorial is not to take a position on the merits of Amend ment 2, but to point out that the amend ment is a solution in search of a problem. M edication made fr om marijuana already is legally prescribed in Florida. Yes, read that again. Medical marijuana is legal in Florida and has been for years. Make that legit imate medical marijuana, not the leafy substance sold in head shops under a sign that calls it medical marijuana. We made this discovery a few days ago, when we pondered the question, Since when do legitimate drugs, including nar cotics considerably stronger than mar ijuana, require approval by the Florida C onstitution? We asked an experienced pharmacist, who immediately conrmed our premise. Medical marijuana already is legal, she said. It is sold under the name of Ma rinol, among others. It is prescribed by doctors for the relief of nausea related to advanced cancer treatments. She went to the Internet and download ed a 12-page Food and Drug Administration primer on dronabinol, the pharma cological name for Marinol. The activ e ingr edient, with a name that dees pronunciation, is a naturally oc curring component of Cannabis sativa L. (Mar ijuana), the FDA posting said. But it is not a leafy green substance rolled in cig arette papers to be smoked in a joint un der the shade of a tree while listening to an old W illie Nelson favorite. It is a light yellow resinous oil administered in cap sules for oral administration. To all appear ances, this legitimate drug is indeed the medical marijuana that proponents have said should be made available for specic maladies. But it is not pot that is legalized for street-corner smoking for relief of un specied other conditions. W e will leave moral and ethical arguments on legalization of weed for another day O ur research indicates that legitimate medical marijuana already is available by prescription for legitimate medical purposes. Amendment 2 would appear to solve a problem that does not exist.A Sun Newspapers editorial.Medical pot: A solution in search of a problem Those people who know me well know that I love history, especially when it comes to our v eter ans, this county and this newspaper. Through the years differ ent ones have stopped by and br ought things to me to look at. Some have been precious to me personally, others have helped educate me. One of those educational pieces was an original cop y of the S tars and Stripes, dated Feb. 24, 1945. Im not even sure now how Ray Napper came across this fragile piece of history, but he was willing to share it with me, so for that I thank him im mensely. As I took the delicate paper to the confer ence room where I could spread it out on the table, I quickly became aware of how brittle the paper was but was also anxious to see what was hidden within the pages. The headline on the front page read st and 9th Armies Attack; Cross Roer, Drive on East. Then inside were pictures of the start of the Ninth Army Offensive. In fact, this particu lar edition was concentrated on the ev ents at the r iver. One of my favorite stories to read was one that was co-written by Andy Rooney Assault C r aft Fail But 60 Men Cross. Maybe it was because it was Andy Rooneys byline, or per haps it was just the way it was wr itten, but the lead par agraph just sucked me right in ... In the red light of bursting shells the battalion moved out of the shadows and started to cross the Roer. It was 0330 hours. It almost sounds like the rst paragraph of a novel. Trust me when I say leads are not easy to write. No wonder Rooney was so well-respected. There was also a map of where the First and Ninth Armies crossed the Roer River. Two stories in the small paper were about the Marines landing on Iwo Jima. A short little sto ry on the front page told of how the M ar ines of the 28th Regiment raised the American ag o v er Mt. Suribachi. The article told how elsewhere the bloody battle was at a virtual stalemate as three leatherneck divisions attempted to drive toward the last enemy-held aireld in the center of the tiny island. Lt. Gen. Holland M. Smith, commanding the Marines, called the Iwo campaign the most difcult problem with which the Marine Corps has been confronted in 168 years, and Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nim itz announced that in the rst 58 hours of ghting the Y anks suffered 5,372 casualties including 644 killed, 560 missing, and 4,168 wounded. In the same per iod, 1,222 J apanese dead were counted. It took the Marines 96 hours to win command of 566-foothigh Mt. Suribachi, from which the Japs had poured deadly mortar, rocket and artillery re. And to think those three little paragraphs put reality into wor ds one of the most famous images of World War II. Another story that caught my eye was Patient Wants to Meet Foxhole Doc. It told of how 19-year-old Pvt. Duane Kin man, a medic of College Place, W ash., per formed an amazing windpipe operation performed on the battleeld with a GI knife and a fountain pen. The patient, 35-year-old Pfc. Henry Roon of Grand Rapids, Mich., cr edited the teenager for saving his life. Its hard to think of a 19-yearold from today doing something similar, not to mention the stress that young man faced. B o y, have the generations changed us. The Stars and Stripes had the typical birth announcements, comic strips (including the stillpopular Blondie and one of my dads favorites, Lil Abner), short pieces of news from around the nation, news from Washington, a little bit of sports, a couple of photos that had nothing to do with the war, and, of course, those beautiful pinup girls. Ray assures me the yellowed newspaper will nd a protective home. Thanks, Ray, for sharing that precious piece of history. Youve made me wish for more.Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor of the News-Sun.

Code named Project Impala, what the restaurant is and wher e it might be located r emains as closely guar ded a secr et as it was at this time a year ago. I am under a conden tiality agreement with regards to the specics of the or ganization, Highlands County Economic Development Director Stephen W eeks told county commissioners last y ear. H e did indicate the new business was nationally recognized rm and that ev eryone will be more than pleased once it is divulged. According to Weeks, the timetable for the mystery restaurants identity and location to be revealed is now set for O ctober Meanwhile, the browneld designation remains in place. We truly dont have a browneld anymore since it now has gone back to its original denition as a tru ly contaminated site w e got gr andfathered in, Weeks said. When we got it, browneld simply meant an underutilized property. We got under the wire. Under its original de nition, a browneld was pr oper ty on which development might be complicated by the presence or potential pr esence of a hazar dous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Ther e ar e a number of properties in Highlands County which still t that denition. The denition of a browneld property was changed for a brief period in 2013, which is when this project came up. The denition since has reverted back to the previ ous meaning.Mystery restaurant still an unknown a year laterProject Impala to be revealed in October BY BARR YY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Ofcials of the United States Department of Agricul ture Natural Resources Conservation Ser vice have extended the deadline for public comment on a F isheating Creek restoration pr ogr am. At issue is a stretch of the waterway between Sebring and State Road 70. The easements lining the estuary would giv e the feder al government control over an estimated 34,000 acr es of ranchland. That property cur rently is being used as agr icultur e but will be changed to a wetlands, said Assistant S tate C onservationist for Easement Programs Roney Gutier rez. There will be an impact on the community, but we think it will be a positiv e one . As designed, Gutier rez said the wetlands would act as a sponge and allo w the water drain down the creek slowly, providing more water for cattle on adjacent pastureland and r educing the possibility of pr oblems such as ash oods This is a high-prole project and we want to be tr anspar ent. We want to give people a chance to express themselv es so if ther e there are concerns we can help people under stand he said. F our land o wners sold a half-dozen easements. Gutierrez said the cumulativ e cost added up to $100 million. Among the landowners getting the cash w er e the Blue Head Ranch and Carlton Properties. U nder the pr ogram, some regulated use still would be permitted by the property o wners Florida is one of the few states that allow the landowners to continue to gr az e their property in a reasonable manner, Gutier rez said. They also are per mitted to access their lands for other purposes such as recreation and hunting. W e manage the sur face use as a wetland. Gutierrez said although the government does restrict the use of the land, it does not become the o wner like happens to properties acquired by the B ur eau of Land Management or the U.S. F ish and Wildlife Commission. The pr ivate landowner continues to o wn the pr operty or may sell it, however the provisions of the easement will stay in place, he said. Gutierrez said the NCS has a plan for restoration of wetlands in the easement and hav e been sharing that idea most recently with the Highlands County Commission. At that session, commissioners voted to send a letter to the NCS saying they would consider enter ing into a partnership with what is being ter med a marsh watershed project. Commissioners said they wanted to know what the countys monetary responsibil ity might be to maintain the planned restoration.

Last year, Ridge Area Arc developed a Golf Cart Driving Program where 60 students graduated. There were three stages of the program those who just want to ride in the golf cart; those who want to drive the golf cart; and those who want to get their real drivers license. There were 10 students who excelled this program and scored very high in the driving of the golf cart. This past year they worked on study ing the Rules of the R oad book, tr afc signs, drugs and alcohol laws, and vehicle maintenance and equipment. Their nal phase of the pr ogram was taking a DA T A (Drugs & Alcohol) course from the state of F lor ida. They successfully completed this four-hour course in M ay pr ovided by Darlings Defensive Driving School in S ebr ing. Those receiving their DATA Course certicates were Dennis Gerald Bass, Katie Gibson, Angela Luft, Orel Moran, Richar d M arino and Maria Rivera. Gibson and Moran were also honor ed since this was their last year at Avon Park High School. The next phase of the driving program is being developed to al low these drivers the oppor tunity to take a Behind the Wheel Driving program. Teresa Messer and Eva Monk were also recognized at the graduation ceremo ny for completing their G olf C art Training Program in May. M esser scor ed 94 out of 100 points on her driving test and Monk scored 81 out of 100 on her test. They needed 75 to pass the road test which is designed very similar to an actual r oad test for vehicles. They can now move forward to take the DATA Course. Messer and Monk practiced on a road course designed on the Arc track. The road course was com plete with lines, signs and par king spots They had to demonstrate how to handle passing a v ehicle rail road crossings, pedestrian crosswalks, signs staying in their lane, backing up, ver tical parking, threepoint tur nar ound, U-turns and even par allel parking.

TALLAHASSEE (AP) The Republican Par ty of Florida is criticizing former Gov. Charlie C r ist for blocking some education cuts while he was governor. The party on Tuesday sent out a press release comparing Crists r ecor d on education to incumbent Gov. Rick Scott. That release faulted Crist for his vetoes of education spending during his rst year in ofce B ut the release also listed what it called additional education vetoes from 2009. I t tur ns out, however, Crist wasnt cutting education spending that year. C r ist was actually vetoing cuts approved by the Legislature dur ing a special session. Lawmakers were forced to appr o ve cuts because state revenue was dropping during the recession.

H e appar ently lost control of the vehicle and crashed head-on into a power pole on the northeast corner of U.S. 27 and Locke St. Deputies are still in vestigating the cause of the wr eck. They do not yet know what citation may be issued, if any. Snellenberger was hurt, but injuries did not appear to be lifethreatening, according to the Sheriffs Ofce. Duke Energy crews ar rived quickly to shut do wn the po wer, and Snellenberger was transported by EMS to a local hospital. The pole, which held three transformers and an overhead light, snapped about 18 feet above ground and the top half toppled onto the white, upholstered roof of the car, leaking uid, shooting sparks with ames and droop ing power lines low o v er the highway. Jerry Miller, Duke Energy community relations manager, said the tr ansfor mers weigh between 300-400 pounds each, meaning the pole had a halfton on it, not counting the overhead street lamp Whether or not a pole snaps depends on the force of the car how heavy it is coupled with how fast its going and the stresses of weight and tension on the pole itself. When asked if its possible for a vehi cle hit a pole without causing severe damage M iller said, Theres only bad places to hit a pole. E mplo yees ran out of Layes Tire Service to shoot a re extinguisher on the ames while emer gency re and power company crews arrived. Deputies and Avon Park police rerouted trafc onto side str eets including semitrailers. Miller said Supervisor Chris Crowell of the H ighlands C ounty yard was on scene within 10 minutes. Duke Ener gy crews cut the power, allowing Avon Park r eghters and H ighlands County Emer gency Medical Services to get Snellenberger out of his car and into an ambulance Capt. David Cloud of Avon Park Fire Department said downed electr ical lines ar e tense situations, since emergency responders are eager to rush in and help but cant until the power is off. Miller said a rotating crew of six people us ing three bucket trucks to sev er the dr ooping power line from other poles, cut connections from the broken pole and then hoist it off the car. When its live, Mill er said, the power line at that location carr ies 7,200 volts over U.S. 27. Within two hours, deputies had the southbound lanes open and had north bound lanes open a half-hour later M iller said it would take a few more hours to restore power to Layes Tire, Dunkin Donuts and Turner Furniture Appliance Center the only thr ee customers who lost power in the wreck, he said. Theyve got to rebuild that whole bank (of tr ansfor mers), Miller said. During the wait, staff from Dunkin Donuts on the opposite side of the highway brought two dozen dough nuts to feed emergency cr ews and law enfor cement.

Commissioner Don Elwell was the swing vote on that one, citing Article Four of the U nited S tates Constitution which requires states to extend full faith and credit to the public acts, records and court proceedings of other states. Congress may regulate the manner in which pr oof of such acts, records or proceedings may be admitted. I think theyve got us there, he said. Elwell also cited a passage from the book of Romans in the Bible where in Chapter 13 the Apostle Paul wrote in verse eight Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves an other has fullled the law Elected ofcials including Highlands County Tax Collector Eric Zwayer, Highlands County Proper ty Appraiser Raymond M cI ntyre, Highlands County Clerk of the Courts Bob Germaine and Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg all asked the county to exclude same-sex marriages from insurance cover age and also addressed the commission with a number of concer ns that ranged from the make-up of the countys insurance committee to a lack of communication by insurance pr o vider Florida Blue on the changes in their coverage. They also pointed out that two of the insur ance committees voting members also are county emplo y ees serv ing on a board with a sitting county commissioner. Zwayer called the situation a conict of interest. A steady stream of residents also called upon the commission to invoke the 2008 F lor ida constitutional amendment on marr iage which was passed by 77 percent of Highlands County voters. Why do they call it Florida Blue if they do not recognize Florida law? asked resident George Hall. There were two res idents who spoke in fav or of extending the coverage. Benjamin Dunn told commissioners the country was evolving and that commissioners needed to ev olve with it, and Suzanne Stills compared the issue to the struggle by African Americans for equality. The issue of commu nication was a central one with commissioners complaining that F lor ida Blue had put them in a difcult position by not informing them that their denition of co v er age had changed. The county was unawar e of the change until it got a request by Highlands County Assistant C ounty A dministrator Randy Vosburg to add his partner Nick Santamaria to the county insurance. Last y ear, Vosburg and Santamaria became the rst same-sex couple in P olk C ounty to adopt a child. COUNTY FROM PAGE A A 1 BY BARR YY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Although they wont see any actual money until later this fall, a number of local ser vice groups could receive a scal shot in the ar m thanks to gr ants from Highlands Regional Medical Center. The money fr om lease payments made by Community Health Systems for the use of Highlands Regional Medical Center will pr o vide the cash. That lease was purchased from Health Management Associates in a wholesale buy out b y Tennessee-based CMS last year, however the protocol remains the same. The hospital board made the recommen dations at their quar terly meeting last week. B ecause H ighlands Regional is owned by the county and leased out to a pr ivate entity to operate it, the provisions of the gr ant pr ogram and allocation of the money must ultimately go before Highlands C ounty commissioners for their approval. In all, there is $516,000 in grant money combined from both the lease and other investment incomes. The H ighlands C ounty branch of the Florida D epar tment of Health was awarded the largest single grant and will get $235,000. The or iginal request was for $535,000 which r epr esented more than the entir e gr ant program al location. This will be used as they determine either for primary care or for the dental health pr ogram, explained Gail Escobar of the Highlands County Hospital District. The second lar gest amount will go to the Samaritans touch Care Center. They will receive $100,000. They had asked for $125,000. That money will go for medical supplies, equipment and stafng. A combined $33,000 will go to the Champi on for Children Foundation. That will be a split allocation, with $27,000 going to the Childr en s Advocacy Center and $6,000 destined for the Vision Quest program. The Handicapped Americans Love of Life Organization is a new recipient this year. They were awarded $24,800 of a requested $47,400, which will be used for a new music therapy pro gram. I t is almost the same as an occupational therapist, a speech ther apist or a physical therapist, said HALLO CEO and founder Deanna Pieretti. N obody has a certied music therapist in H ighlands C ounty. Other allocations included $41,700 to the School B oar d of Highlands County, $26,000 to Ridge Chapter 49 of the D isabled American Veterans, $15,000 to the South Florida State College Foundation and $14,280 to N u-H ope Elder Care Services. Allocations include a meal pr ogram for NuHope, school board ofcials will use their money for health technicians at the countys three high schools and the DA V will lev erage their money to help with the pur chase of a van for their medical transportation program. B ecause the gr ants are for the 2014 scal year, and because the hospital board is on the same time schedule as the county, nal appr o val will be done sometime after the start of the new scal year on Oct. 1.Hospital Board ready to hand out $516,000Why do they call it Florida Blue if they do not recognize Florida law?George Hall county resident the Dollar General at 79 Lunsford Road in Sebring. A man wear ing an oversized, grey hooded sw eatshir t with the hood pulled up around his head walked into the store, approached a clerk at the cash register and mumbled in a low voice, demanding money. The clerk told dep uties that although the man had the hood pulled up she could still see his face and noted that he was a white male with a poor complexion, reports said. The clerk said the suspect later iden tied as Hicks by two witnesses thr ough a photo lineup mumbled his demand several more times while motioning as if he had a weapon concealed in his waistline, reports said. The cler k r emoved the till from the reg ister, and the man gr abbed the cash and ed. Surveillance video showed him leaving the store and stopping to pick up something that fell from his waistband. Witnesses saw him run east through the parking lot to a wood ed area, where he got into the passenger side of a Ford Taurus station wagon that dr o ve away, reports said. Crime scene analysts found two different tire tread patterns in the wooded ar ea as w ell as welldened footprints. A day later, depu ties got a call about a bur glar y in progress at Cash for Gold, 1690 V icki Drive in Sebring. No one was at the store, reports said, but investigators found the north side glass door had been broken, with a silver womens watch sitting on the outside door mat. They also found the top of one display case broken with a hammer left inside it. It was estimated that approximately $2,800 in jewelry was stolen, reports said. Witnesses at the Chilis restaurant across U.S. 27, who had called in the crime, reported seeing a maroon Ford Taurus station wagon leaving the crime scene. Dep uty Dusty McGee soon spotted a similar v ehicle but the people in it didn t match the description of the bur glars that was rst given to the HCSO. Still, M cG ee got the license plate. Later, after further questioning revealed the burglary suspects did, in fact, match the two people McGee saw in the car, it was discovered the car was registered to Hudson, reports said. Detective Roger St. Laurent went to Hud sons home on Sharon Avenue in Sebring and found the station wagon. The car had differ ent types of tires on the front and back, and both sets matched tracks found at the scene of the Dollar General rob bery, reports said. Also S t. Laurent reported, a grey sweatshirt was plainly visible in the back of the car and the car had a magnetic br east cancer ribbon decal on it, which match descriptions from witnesses, reports said. D eputies questioned H udson and H icks who denied any involvement in the crimes. They said they had driven the car the night of the burglary, but said they had gone to Taco Bell and Walmart. After obtaining and serving a search war rant for their home, deputies found a pair of siz e 9 1/2 Nike sneakers in the bedroom, along with two br acelets Hicks said the shoes were his, reports said, and the tr ead matched shoe prints left at the robbery scene. A sear ch of the Taurus turned up the sw eatshir t as well as a meat cleaver in the front passengers seat. Deputies also found two necklaces and several hand-written price tags, similar to the ones used at the jewelry store. Hicks repeated his statement that they had driven to Taco Bell and Walmart, with Hudson driving the car. Although Hudsons full statement was re dacted from the report, she told deputies she wished to wor k with them and speak about other recent robberies and burglar ies.

Playing in the woodenbat New York Collegiate Baseball League, Stanley lead off the rst inning with a home run for the Genesee Rapids. My coach at CCC asked if I wanted to play in a collegiate league and I said sure, he said. He sent all my stats and info to some teams and they recruited me to come play up here. Stanley wouldnt let up from his rousing rst at bat, as he added three more hits and scored an other run in the Rapids 6-1 win, earning him the leagues rst Hitter of Day honor of the season. Its pretty great being able to play up here, he said. And its nice and cool. No humidity, so its perfect baseball weath er. This gr eat star t to the summer follows a freshman season with Clear water that saw Stanley bat a solid .269 with a .374 on base per centage. He lead the team in runs scored with 27 and tied for the team lead with 19 stolen bases.

The past couple of w eeks have been lled with ooded elds, game cancellations, make-ups and pickups in Dixie Ozone baseball action. For that reason, Elks and Hornick Homes found themselves fac ing off one last time the night befor e the Ozone tournament would begin on Tuesday. Always a pr omising matchup for a good game, the difference between the two was the early jump Hornick Homes took in the rst inning that helped in their 9-6 victor y. In this effort, Brandon Gonzales, Ramsey H or nick, J.J. Evans and Connor Stevens made their way around the diamond to put the boys in white ahead 4-0 after one inning of play. Despite putting two men on and both ad vancing to scoring position, the Elks were not able to respond to this early lead in the Hornick Homes edges Elks Lauren Welborn/News-Sun Starting pitcher L.J.

If so, that would be a benet moving for ward for future success. Whatev er the r eason is, Dixie Softball par ticipation is on the rise in Lake Placid, as evidenced by enough players to eld a three-team league season this year for the 13to 15-y ear old age group. It was a nice change with a lot of participants, said Linette W ells head coach of the Wells Roof ing team. We usually struggle to keep this age gr oup going. But going they have it at this stage, though the league knows there is more to do. They still have a lot of work that needs to be done to promote youth softball for them to be successful, Wells said. The president Randy Harris and V ice P resident (Reese Martin) have been really supportive of the softball pr ogr am and helps out a lot with the entire league. And as the league gets stronger, so too does the future of the high school program, Dixie Softball is on the rise in LP Dan Hoehne/News-SunNoon Rotarys Haley Carl sets to re a pitch in to J.J. McCoys Briana Huergo Monday night in Lake Placid Dixie Softball action. SEE LP | A12 TIM RE YY NOLDSAP Basketball WriterMIAMI For the Miami Heat, its all about June. July can wait. Four years ago, when LeBron James uttered that now-in famous phrase not two not three, not four, not ve ... about how many championships he hoped to win with the Heat, it was almost immediately turned into a punch line. It rings prophet ic in some ways now, with the H eat back in the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive season. How the Heat fare in their NBA Finals re match with the San Antonio S purs might dictate what happens in July, when James, Chris Bosh and Dwy ane Wade can become fr ee agents if they choose. A looming offseason of decisions has been a taboo subject for the Heat Big 3 this sea son, and Wade insisted Monday that Miamis stars have not said a wor d to each other about what may or may not happen. Im not lying, Wade said. Still, as long as Mi ami keeps winning, it seems logical the Big 3 will stay together. I want to come back. Thats OK to say, I think, Bosh said Monday after the Heat nished their rst workout in prep aration for the NBA F inals which begin Thursday in San Antonio. I cant speak for anything else and I don t want to take away from the subject at hand, but I like it her e Its Miami. Enough said. People are dying to get here. Regardless of the outcome of this HeatSpurs series, there will be changes to the Heat, which is an an nual rite for just about ever y team. James, Wade and Bosh can all opt out of their current deals. Shane Battier is retiring, Ray Allen may think about doing the same while Mario Chalmers, James J ones and R ashard Lewis are notable free-agents-in-waiting. I t s not just the Big 3 who arent thinking too far ahead, yet. Allen said no one in the room is looking past anything but this ser ies especially with the S purs T im D uncan saying San Antonio will get it done this year after falling short against the Heat last season. But as James noted, both teams have their own motivation. Thats the great thing about hav ing veterans, Allen said. N obody worries about whats not here yet. Winning a third straight title could make some of those stay-or-go decisions pretty simple. And Wade believes Miamis legacy has been secured. Whenever its all said and done, the legacy of this team, its going to be a great team, Wade said. Its going to go down in history as an unbe lievable team not only in S outh F lorida but in NBA history.Heat locking in on Finals, not what summer bringsSEE H EE AT | A12 4.r tC+ t 4fiii,\:, ::i:i:'.

Gonzales reached on a single in the bottom of the inning, and was moved to third after the efforts of the next two Hornick batters, the second being L.J. Daniels single to put two men on base. A few wild pitches later, both Gonzales and Daniels added two more runs for Hornick. With the score now at 6-0, the boys in ma roon needed to sneak in some r uns of their own to stay in the game. Grifn Hall led things off by making it to rst and was moved to third by Cope Brew er and Trey Bender.

Naythan Rivera and Dalton Green both reached on singles, loading the bases. A ball squeaked its way past the Hornick defense to allow Jones across the plate, with the Elks cutting Hor nick Homes lead in half. Q uick on their feet, the boys of Hornick would make their way home two more times in response in the bot tom of the third. A elder s choice granted Xavier Hold man rst base before making his way to thir d dur ing Ronnie Roberts at-bat. While Jayden Lee was at the plate, a wild pitch brought in Holdman while Rob erts made his way into scor ing position. Another wild pitch brought in Roberts to allow more Homes in surance, with the score no w at 8-3. I n a repeat effort, the Elks racked in three additional runs in the top of the fourth. This time it was Cash Smoak, Chris Cardoso, and Chance Smoak making their way across the plate to creep once again on Hornicks lead, 8-6. The Hornick defense was able to recoup and buckle down to make two quick outs, silenc ing Elks momentum for the nal time G onzales came in with the hat trick, scoring his third run for Hornick Homes in the bottom of the fourth. With both defenses keeping any more of fensive threats away, G onzales would be the last to cross the plate for either side of the eld.

Its actually unbelievable how much talent ther e is I hope that everyone continues to follow the path theyre on.

High school is all about competition, putting all that time in Dixie just benets you in what y ou need to know for getting where you want to be.

One of my closest fr iends husbands was recently diagnosed with it. He is only 62. I thought Alzheimers was only memor y loss but it seems like so much more. His personality has changed. She tells me he gets angry with her when she tries to help him. What exactly is Al zheimers, and what can be done to stop it? U NSNS UR EE I NN OAOA K P AA RK, I LLLL I NONO I SS DEAR UNSURE: Im sorry to say from personal experience that Alzheimers disease, while often thought of as minor memory loss, is a dis ease that is ultimately fatal. Its cause is not y et understood. I lost my mother to it. Alzheimers kills nerve cells and tissue in the br ain, causing it to shrink dramatically. It affects a persons ability to communicate, to think and, ev entually to breathe. At least 44 million people worldwide are now living with Alzheimers disease and other dementias. As our populations age those numbers will swell to 76 million by 2030. Currently there is no way to prevent, stop or even to slow the pro gression of Alzheimers disease S ome drugs manage the symptoms, but only temporarily. This is why more funding for Alzheimers and mor e suppor t for the families who are car ing for loved ones who hav e it ar e so urgently needed. Please suggest to your friend that she contact the Alzheimers Association for help because it offers support groups for spouses R eaders, June is Alzheimers and Brain A war eness Month. If you are concerned about Alzheimers disease and we all should be y ou can get involved by joining the global ght against this very nasty disease. To learn more, visit alz. org/abam. DEAR ABBY: Im cur rently dating a man who is 10 y ears older than I am. I m 24; he s 34. We have known each other for two years and we live together. He has two beautiful daughters I ador e. His older daughter, Pearl (age 12), called me Mom the other night, and then asked me if it was OK. Im not their mother, and I would never try to take that role away from my boyfriends ex, but this puts me in an awkward situation. As much as I love his girls, I dont want to cause drama or have Pearl get in trou ble with her mother. SHESHE CALLEDCALLED M EE M OO MDEAR CALLED ME MOM: Talk to Pearl. Tell her you were touched knowing she feels that way about you and deeply attered when she called y ou Mom, but you feel if her mother knew about it that she would be hurt. (This is especially true if the girls liv e with their mother .) Then ask Pearl to come up with another affectionate name for you, or suggest one to her.Contact Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O.

Nielsen said Monday the drug-dealing dr ama starr ing Bryan Cranston had an aver age of 6 million people seeing tw eets for each episode. The show was boosted by its nale last September, where the number shot up to 9.1 million. Another AMC series, The Walking Dead, came in second with 5.17 million.

Growing up in H ar dee County, we had lots of watermelon as a refreshing summer snack during the after noons. D id y ou know that watermelon is a great source of potassium and it also has protein in the seeds? Studies have shown that eating watermelon will help lower your blood pres sure and it has lycopene, which causes its r ed color and has o ver 40 potential health benets. I hav e a neat r ecipe for you that is simple, has great avor and to me represents summer. I hope you like to water melon with the avocado and nishing with a bit of sharpness with the lemon, Feta and some heat from the peppers. This salad would be a great afternoon snack or maybe you could tossed some chicken breast on it and turn it into a healthy lunch. I would also consider a piece of rare Ahi tuna over it. The next time you have your grill going, try giving a slice of water melon a quick char and then hit it with a small amount of salt and pepper I think you will be surpr ised as to ho w good it tastes with the hint of char grill on it. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and go get your self some watermelon. Cheers Chef.

www.newssun.comWednesday, June 4, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | B7 rfrfnrfnttbb rf b n ntb nb 3046595 Chicken breasts are a great starting point for a delicious and healthy meal. Theyre a very lean source of protein and an excellent item to serve to your family on a regular basis. And I promise you that theres an endless number of ways you can cook chicken breasts so that you dont end up boring everyone to death with a plain, un appetizing, dried out hunk of poultr y : % Kabobs Im not sure why its so much fun to eat meat on a stick but it is! Kabobs are simple. Cut your chicken br easts in chunks and marinate them for a few hours in your favor ite spices and yogurt or coconut milk. Thr ead them onto stainless steel skewers (or wooden skewers that have been soaked in water for at least 30 minutes and grill! Some folks like to put veggies on their chicken kabobs, but I highly recommend doing your meat and veggies separately be cause the veggies get bur nt to heck waiting for your meat to cook. % Stir fr y. A staple in my home! What could be easier than chasing some chicken strips and colorful veggies around the pan? There are a million ways to make a stir fry, so I recom mend experimenting with sauces and veggie combinations until you nail one that your family loves. % Salad. I par ticularly like making salads with leftover chicken breast on top. Start with a big bowl of greens and top with your favorite veg gies. If youre feeding kids tr y letting them top their own salads and spread everything out like a buffet. Try items like avocado slices, diced tomato, pur ple cabbage, almonds, chicken, bacon, cheese boiled eggs, red pepper strips make it colorful and exciting, and let the kids choose their favor ite things. Mix up a simple vinaigrette and you hav e a meal. % Chicken ngers. I havent met a kid yet who didnt get excited about chicken ngers. Its dead easy to make chicken ngers at home Even Paleoistas if youre gluten free, you can enjoy chicken ngers with your little ones. Simply dredge y our sliced chicken in coconut milk and then dip in a mixture of almond our and coconut. Salt and pepper to taste S pritz with some olive oil and bake. Serve with a little Dijon/honey mixture. Yum! % Wr ap. Paleo, gluten free and low carb folks can all enjoy a tasty wrap! Simply choose your favorite wrap al ternative, be it a piece of B oston lettuce or a cabbage leaf, and stuff it with your favorite xings. You can do Fajitas this way b y adding some avocado, salsa and other Mexican-style toppings, or just add some veggies and mayo of your choosing. Or maybe do club sandwich style and use bacon and tomato on there (you have the L of your sandwich covered with the lettuce wrap). Whos getting hungry here? % Soup Soup doesnt have to be a long, drawn-out affair! You can put a delicious pot of soup on the table in a relatively quick peri od of time. Take stock of what s in the refrigera tor and use your imagination. avorStart with a homemade br oth (cheaper and easier than the stuff in the car ton) and add whatever y ou like but always start with onions, carrots and celery for a good start ing place.Cheap, tasty and fast! DINNER DIVALeanne Ely CELEBRATIONS Special to the News-SunSEBRING Earl and Jean Conrad, drivers for Sebring Meals O n Wheels for over 22 years, were feted at a small reception in honor of their 65th w edding anniv er sary. The drivers for W ednesday meal deliv ery surprised the couple with the r eception, hanging pas tel honey-comb paper bells on a tr ee near the meal distribution table at the Palms of Sebring. A small cake with pink tr im was served to the anniver sary couple and the dr iv ers. The couple joined Sebring Meals On Wheels in 1991, and have driven almost every route. They re member when the bookkeeping r ecor ds were kept in a bound ledger book with entries entered manually in ink. S ome of the dir ections in their original route books were so specic, they ev en included the color of the house, the name of the family dog, and the next door neighbors name! It is estimated the Conrads hav e deliv ered over 11,500 meals to the Meals On Wheels clients over the 22-year span. Their 65th w edding anniversary was actually June 1. Earl tells a touching stor y of both of them in college. They wanted to get married, but the college would not allow couples to marr y until the br ide reached 21 y ears of age Once Jean became 21, Earl returned to the administrator of the college and asked for per mission to marr y her. The administrator asked him Jeans age, reminding him of the schools rules on mar riage. When the administrator learned she was 21, his main concer n at that point was how would Jeans senior year of college be paid. Jean reports that her family had promised to pay for her to n ish college. She was thankful for the GI B ill for Earl. That helped with his college bills and getting our rst home, Jean said. Only one driv er, Sandy Vaughn, has volunteer ed with Sebring Meals On Wheels longer than the Conrads. She began volunteering for S ebr ing Meals On Wheels in 1985. There are several volunteers who drive more than one day per week. For more informa tion on becoming a v olunteer dr iver or to obtain meals, contact Sebring Meals On Wheels at (863) 4021818.
