The weather was quite warm, but a breeze off the sandy shores of Lake Jackson helped to keep everyone somewhat comfortable. The Freedom Stage was set up right behind the Jack Stroup Civic Center and was the place to be for fun and entertainment all weekend. The Highlands Little Theater (HLT) kicked off the Red, White and Blues Festival with its annual Patriotic Review program. Shows were held every hour from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and featured singing by the HLT Singers and music by the Highlands Pops. The star of the show was 6-year-old T.J. Mercer. who sang Yankee Doodle Dandy. First up on the Freedom Stage was the hot dog eating contest. While there were many people watching, only four brave souls got up on stage to participate Joanna Johnson, Gregory Ruggs, George Menendez and Leonard Cochran. Did you all know that at this same time in New York, the famous Nathans Hot Dog Eating Contest is happening? Joey Chestnut is the reigning champ having eaten over 60 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Any takers? asked emcee Don Elwell. Contestants had 10 minutes to eat as many hot dogs as possible.

www.newssun.comSunday, July 6, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Y OO UR VIEWS Nothing humanizes a polarizing political topic like the face of a child. And 52,000 of them since October make it a humanitarian crisis. Relatively suddenly, the nation be came aware of the scale of the prob lem brewing on its southern border land. Thousands of children, driven to desper ation b y violence that threatens them at home, have ed toward the safer haven of the United States. Those who survived the perilous journey through the drug barons and pimps are likely to nd themselves caught in a snare, detained by an over whelmed detachment of border patrol agents As unexpected and unw elcome a twist on the immigration argument as this is, nothing alters the fact that these are vulnerable children, strand ed between two worlds without their parents And that should guide our re sponse to the crisis. I t s a problem that wont be solved by dispatching National Guard soldiers to the border. Nor will it be solved by presidential jawboning, no matter how sincere. The social workers on the front line must be allowed to do their work, pro viding these children food, medical attention and a safe space in the same way that aid workers are doing in Jor dan, Lebanon, Kenya, Uganda, Afghanistan and other sad places where the dispossessed gather And then w e must demand our elected leaders try to nd pragmatic ways to deal with this human disaster. Its asking a lot from a president and Congress that have shown little incli nation to accomplish anything that requires cooperation. But the voter-citi zens should insist upon a little moral br av ery from the people they send to Washington. It wont be easy. The elements that created these American refugee and deportation centers include a some times-nasty stew of poverty, drug pol icy, law enforcement, the social safety net and the legal path to war d citizen ship. Ob viously America must be able to control its borders better, since it can not remotely afford to take in all of the world s poor children. It is obvi ous, too, that the nations generating this cr isis ar e doing a miserable job of combating poverty and violence by nurturing capitalism and the rule of law. Turning that around will be tre mendously difcult. This simmer ing br ew wont be calmed by the simple prescriptions from the political edges. Its not practi cal to wall off the border, or to drop the barr iers that pr operly limit untaxed people from enjoying all the benets of citizenship. The fair but difcult path lies somewhere in the middle. And it is lined with the faces of chil dren.An editorial from the Providence (R.I.) Journal.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com II raq or oil?The situation in Iraq has become tragic and impossible to solve as long as the war is a religious trib al civil war, which it is. The world is watching and hear ing of hundr eds of people being killed everyday and thousands made homeless. The war news is on page 6 of your daily paper, but what is on page 1? Thats right, how will this affect the oil and gas prices around the world? This shows us what the world re ally thinks is important. Not people, oil. After a lot of r esear ch on the subject, I have determined that the per son responsible for the fact we have been held hostage b y the Ar abs oil supply for 100 years is Henry Ford. Thats right. Not Bush or Obama or any number of world leaders. Its Henry Ford. If he had invented a car that ran on air and water (which most teen agers think when they borrow dads car) instead of oil and gasoline w e would not be in this mess. Remember some 40 years ago when people were in gas lines and Congress said, we must get away from foreign oil? Well, they appar ently gured out their stock options and annuities w er e funded by oil companies so that didnt go far. Today the administration refus es to approve a pipeline from Canada to New Orleans because some far mer in N ebraska is afraid there might be a leak in the pipeline. So, we worry about oil from the Middle East. The only two things the Ar abs have to sell are Berber carpets and oil. Henry Ford did it.HAL GRAVESSebringAll county meetings should be at nightWhy do so few citizens attend the county commission meetings and run for that ofce? And what can be done to change this? By having the commission meetings at 9 in the morning makes it impossible for some citiz ens who work for a living to attend the meetings. And I understand that some of the commissioners don t really want a large crowd. The larger the cr o wd, the more questions are asked. By having the meetings in the morning also makes it impossible for some working citizens to run for the ofce of county commission due to the fact the job they have is not one that they can leave to at tend the meetings as required. And w e ar e missing a lot of good commissioners because of this. Also, this eliminates the competition to incumbents at election time and some commissioners sure like that. I and others think all citizens have the right to attend the meetings and run for the ofce of county com missioner, and we see no reason it can t be done. I would like to have all (not one, but all) county commission meetings start at 6 / p.m. Or hear from our commission as to why we can t do this, understanding that Avon Park, Sebring and Lake Placid meet at night with no problems, and I can see no reason we cant do the same. If the commission thinks this would make us get out too late, then put the meetings back to four meet ings a month, and it wont take so long. I f it s because some old folks cant drive at night, we can set up a pickup serivce. Two meetings per month is only half the job that was there when the present commission ran for ofce and we now pay them full pay for half the meetings. I would like to hear what you think. jbyoungman@ymail.com, or call (863) 382-4933.BILL YOUN gG MA NSebringThis past week we celebrated the nations 238th birthday. Like many, you might have had the day off fr om wor k. You maybe went to some outdoor activity (if it didnt rain) and when darkness fell you oohed and ahed over pretty reworks. And I am afraid that to many in this country that is sum total of what the day means to them. A holiday when the banks and post ofce are closed, stores of fer sales, and people get to goof off. Nothing mor e. This worries me. The United States didnt just spring forth fr om the for ehead of Zeus, already formed and ready to go. And if w e for get what it took to become a nation, we run the risk of taking it all for granted. And our freedoms and privileges are things we must never take for gr anted. When our F ounding Fathers decided to become a new nation, they put everything they had on the line M any of those who signed the Declaration of Independence lost just about everything they owned. All risked their lives in the effort to break away from England. And once it was done, they struggled to put together a unique nation. One founded on rights for all, not just a priv ileged few. One built on what they saw as God-giv en rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Did they get it all correct in the beginning? No. It would take a civil war to extend those rights to blacks, and still more years before women could vote. But they laid the founda tion that others could build on to secur e those r ights. And left open avenues for us to make necessary changes to get closer to the ideals they espoused. But I think a lot of us have forgotten all that. Some tend to focus on whats wrong with the country in their eyes. They ig nore constitutional limitations on go v ernment and seek to empower it more and more, ignoring the fact that more power for the federal government means less po w er for the individual. And there are the jaded ones. The ones who believe that theres nothing to be done. The country may be going in the wrong direction but theres no action of theirs that might turn it around. They dont vote, they dont keep up on issues. They just go with the ow. We need to remember. Our country was once a bea con of freedom. A city set on a hill for all to see. A land of oppor tunity. It may still be that to some witness the ood of people who tr y to get here but I fear that is changing. As we cede more and more rights and powers to an ever-expand ing central government we lose some of our luster And if w e dont turn it around, if we dont change our direction, we may well see our light wink out for good. We still have a lot to praise in this nation of ours. Despite at tacks on it, we still enjoy tremendous religious freedom. W e r etain the power to speak our minds for the most part. For those willing to work, this is still a land of opportunity. But it could all change if we forget. Today, though Independence Day has come and gone, take a moment to reect on the gift a few men gave us over 200 years ago. A great nation. A country that has not only benetted its own people, but the world. A country that has tried to do the right thing at the right time, at least in times past. And then lets look back at the dreams and aims of the found ers and try to realize them once again. O ne nation, dedicated to being the best it can be. Its not too late to restore the dream.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at book wormlady@embarqmail.com Vis it her website at www.laurahware. com.

This competition takes place every three years; the one to be held in Frost proof being the largest so far. These locations ar e determined by a nomination of region at the World Assembly by other countries; once the U.S. region was nominated, U niv ersal Shooting Academy was chosen because of its high quality facility and location to other popular attractions.

We had bikini prelims Thursday night and inter view go wn preliminaries on Saturday, Amber Lynn J ackson said. I still have a long road of pageantry in front of me but Im excited and can feel the love from Highlands Coun ty. J ackson is a S ebring High School gradu ate and also graduated from the Univer sity of Florida. She is the daughter of the late Andr ew Jackson. A Sebring attor ney, he served as a for mer Highlands County commissioner a legal counsel to sev er al elected boards and was the rst R epublican to r epresent Highlands County in the F lor ida House of Representatives. J ackson s pageant fate has yet to be decided. A top 16 will be picked to compete in all categor ies today. She has been able to participate in at least one Independence Day activity, marching in a parade with other contestants on Friday. All in all, Jackson said the pageant which started Thursday has been quite an ex perience. I ts my rst time in D.C. and being in the nations capital during the Fourth has been amazing, she said. Interestingly, Jack son will not be representing Florida but will r epr esent Big Sky Country. I was a runner-up in Florida and the director saw that I was passionate about wanting to compete at the national pageant so she recommended me to the national ofce, Jackson explained. After r e-submitting an application and working through the protocols of a pageant process, she was appointed to represent M ontana. By no means am I giving up my Florida and Highlands County roots, she said. I m even wearing my dads Florida pin on my sash. The Miss United States Organization has been dubbed as the fastest grow ing pageant in the nation. It features divisions for girls and women fr om ages 8-39. Jackson said that she has been buoyed up by the support she has received from lo cal friends and family. They gav e her a sendoff par ty June 29 at the Don Joses restaurant on the shores of Lake Jackson.

The feder al go vernment is considering listing the gr eater sage grouse as an endangered species next year. Doing so could limit development, ener gy exploration, hunting and ranching on the 165 million acr es of the birds habitat across 11 Western states. Apart from the potential economic disruption, which some ofcials in Western states discuss in tones usually reserved for natural disasters, the specter of the birds listing is r eviving the centur iesold debates about local vs. federal control and whether to dev elop or conserve the regions vast expanses of land. Two Republican congressmen running for the U.S. Senate in M ontana and Colorado, S tev e Daines and Cory Gardner, are co-sponsoring legislation that would pr ev ent the federal government from listing the bir d for a decade as long as states tr y to pr otect it. Montanans want locally driven solutions, D aines said in an inter view They dont want bur eaucr ats thousands of miles away in Washington, D.C., dictating what should happen. E nvironmentalists and the two Democrat ic senators being challenged, John Walsh in M ontana and M ark Udall in Colorado, op pose the idea. They say they don t want a listing, either, but that the thr eat of one is needed to push states to protect the bird. A bill like what some in the House are pro posing that would delay listing the bir d would actually undermine locally driven efforts, said U dall spokesman Mike Saccone.

ANTONIO GONZALEZ AASSOCIATED P PRESS OAKLAND, Calif. One of baseballs best rotations is about to get even better. The Oakland Athletics have an agreement in place to acquir e right-handers Jeff Samardzija and Jason H ammel fr om the Chicago Cubs for three top pr ospects in a surpr ising trade for the team with the best r ecor d in the majors, two people with knowledge of the deal said Friday night. The people, who spoke to The Associ ated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal was still pending, said the A s will send top prospect and shortstop Addison Russell, outelder Billy McKinney and pitcher Dan Straily to the C ubs An ofcial announcement was expected Saturday. The tr ade is a r are move under general manager Billy Beane in which Oakland one of baseballs most frugal franchises is parting with talent ed young prospects for pr o ven players to chase a World Series title. The A s are a major league-best 53-33 after beating the Toronto B lue J ays 1-0 in 12 innings Friday but have come up shor t in the playoffs recently. Samardzija and Hammel give the twotime defending AL West champions a powerful punch to add to a solid rotation that already includes Scott Kazmir, Sonny Gray and Tommy Milone. Jesse Chavez and Drew Pomeranz also have shined at times. Oakland could use such strong arms, es pecially Samardzijas, after being eliminated in a decisiv e fth game at home against Detroits Justin Verlander in the AL divisional playoffs the past two seasons The har d-throwing Samardzija has just a 2-7 record on a Cubs team in last place in the NL Central. But he has a 2.83 ERA and 103 strikeouts in 108 innings, making him one of the most coveted pitchers on the trade market. The Cubs drafted the former Notre Dame receiver in the fth round in 2006. He worked his way up from reliever to starter and has im proved every season. B ut out of contention again this sum mer, the Cubs wanted to get the most for S amar dzija while they could. He is set to become a free agent for the rst time after the 2015 sea son. While he will tur n 32 on Sept. 2, Hammel has been as reliable as ever for the Cubs. He is 8-5 with a 2.98 ERA and 104 strikeouts in 108 2-3 innings. He will be a free agent af ter the season. The win-no w appr oach still comes at a cost for O akland.

E rskin T oliver was hit by the pitcher for the second time in the game. He stole his way around the bases be fore D.J. Williams walked and a hit to left eld b y Tay Williams brought Toliver ar ound. B uddy Jolley singled to right center eld to plate both D.J. and Tay Williams. Okeechobee scored two runs in the fth inning, the result of four bases on balls and a hit batsman, a rare lapse in mound efciency by the Drag on pitching staff. Lake P lacid s Buddy Jolley pitched the rst four innings, throwing 61 pitches. He allowed one hit, struck out six and walked one. Kamari Brown came in from left eld to relieve Jolley in the fth inning with T oliver also taking the hill later in that inning and pitching the sixth. D .J. W illiams hurled the seventh, facing down a two on, no out situation as he struck out the nal three Okeechobee batters TITLE FROM PAGE A A 9felt way better coming back into that race after running my sprint car Any momentum is good momentum. Kahne was 12th on a restart with three laps to go when Chase Elliott, another JR Motor sports driver, sputtered at the fr ont of the eld when the race went to green. It stacked up trafc behind Elliott and trig gered a four-car crash that halted the r estar t. Kahne maneuvered his way through the accident and found himself eighth when the race resumed for a two-lap overtime sprint to the nish. He weaved his way through trafc, but didnt appear to be in the mix for a shot at the win as Smith pulled away from the pack. But as the eld hur tled through the nal turn, Kyle Larson jumped out of line and made it thr ee-wide behind Smith. K ahne mo ved into the top lane and, using a push from Ryan S ieg, char ged alongside Smith and beat him to the line by .021 seconds. E verything I did tonight was wrong I looked in my mirr or and would be like Go and then decide not to and itd be the right move, Kahne said. I didnt really do a whole lot right, but at the end, I got a big push from (Sieg) and was able to get by Regan there. Just had tons of momen tum there coming off tur n four and had a fast car. Smith couldnt offer a better last-lap strategy then the one he used. If I go up any higher, we probably all wreck right there, Smith said. I dont know how to do it any differ ent. Ill have to study the tape and see where I messed up. I had a pretty good sized gap, but at that point you cant crack the throttle or drag the brake. I lost just enough momen tum that it didnt quite wor k out. It was the sixth win this season for JR Motorsports, and second consecutiv e follo wing Kevin Harvicks victory last week at Kentucky. It feels good to win. These guys have won ve times already this year, so its nice to get one. It was a fun race. Smith, one of JR Mo torsports two full-time dr iv ers, wound up second in his return to D aytona follo wing his victory in Februarys season-opener. Despite the defeat, Smith reclaimed the series points lead from Elliott Sadler. Its kind of bitter sweet, Smith said. Im disappointed for the team, I m disappointed for my guys, and selfishly Im disappointed. But, for JR Motorsports, Im happy. A 1-2 nish is gr eat. I ts kind of a weird mix of emotions right now. I m happy for the company and frustrated for the 7 team. Ear nhar dt was thrilled with the 1-2 nish and the sixth win for his company. Im proud of the company and what theyve been able to ac complish this year. S ieg was a car eerbest third. It was a win for us, Sieg said. Hopefully it will bring some more sponsors. It would be nice to have a full-time sponsor, hopefully we turned some eyes. The performance earned huge praise from Earnhardt, who said he spent time watching Sieg race dur ing last months race at Do v er. He impressed the hell out of me. I had not really paid a ton of attention to him prior to that, and I know those guys r un on a shoestring (budget), but he had a couple of runs during the race at Dover that were better than anyone outside the top-ve, Earn hardt said. Its great to see him r un w ell because I think he does a lot with v er y little. KAHNE FROM PAGE A A 9 2016 is that his players will have the home fans behind them.

L IVING B Sunday, July 6, 2014 Take care of your musclesBy engaging in a workout routine, youve already proven that you care for your body. But do you have a care plan for the muscles that take you to your next level of tness? Here are some ways to keep those hard working muscles in top shape so you can give it your all at every workout. Warm up and cool downRegardless of the sport or activity you pursue, its always best to ease into it slowly and build your endurance as you go. Warming up can include light jogging, walking or per forming the activity at a very slow pace. At the end of your routine, be sure to lightly stretch out each major muscle group you worked. Have a backup planIn case of injury, always have a reliable pain relief and support product on hand, such as KT Tape, an elastic sports and tness tape designed for muscle, ligament and tendon pain relief and support. Its lightweight, comfortable to wear and can be used on many common injuries, such as lower back pain, knee pain, shin splints and tennis elbow. For more information, visit www.kttape.com. Photo courtesy of Getty Images FAMI LY FEATURESFor most people, there is typically one main motivator for wanting to get in shape for the warmer weather months they want to t into the smaller, more revealing clothing of the season. Whether its a new swimsuit theyd like to purchase in a smaller size or they just want last years shorts to t more comfortably, getting a beach-ready body can often seem unattainable. But summer boasts an abundance of outdoor ac tivities that take away the chore of getting in shape. Focus on the fun of the season. TODAYS TRENDS IN FIT NESSFor those who long for a little variety in their tness routine, here are some new trends taking shape for indoors and outdoors that may be just what you need to take your tness to the next level. Listen to your bodyIf you should experience any sharp or sudden pains while exercising, dont ig nore the warning signs. Working out through the pain may make a small injury much worse. As a general rule, if it feels wrong, stop the workout. For more tness tips, visit www.elivingtoday.com. Go take a hikeNothing allows you to take in the peace and tranquility of nature more than a long hike. This summer, incorporate many long hikes into your weekly routine and build up your endurance with this benecial cardio exercise. Check with your county and state parks for trails and expand on your hiking skills, advancing in difculty levels and length as the season progresses. What it works: Hiking engages the quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and gluts. This activity also strengthens your abdominal core, especially while carrying a heavy pack. Break a sweat, courtsideAll you need to increase your heart rate is a basketball and an empty court at the local park or school play ground. Practice shooting, normal dribbling, dribbling while doing sit-ups and dribbling behind the back of your legs. Make it a week ly event to gather for a game with friends and youll forget you are even working out. What it works: Basketball can be a full-body workout, but it mainly targets your triceps, shoulders, biceps and pectoral muscles.Go for a swimWhile the summer days often bring about occasions to relax by the pool, theres no rea son not to jump right in. Take refuge from the suns heat and burn calories at the same time by swimming. This exercise is a top choice for those with physical limitations or who nd simple car dio activities such as walking, hiking or jogging difcult or painful. What it works: Swimming works all major muscles groups, especially the shoulders, abdominals, legs, hips and back. Body weight trainingThis new trend in tness works by using your own body weight as resistance, which can help you shape muscles, tone, increase exibility and ultimately, burn fat. High intensity interval trainingThis routine is great for those who are short on time, requir ing extreme exertion in short intervals followed by a shorter recovery time. Yoga by airYogas newest offering is called aerial or antigravity yoga, which combines clas sic yoga moves with acrobatics; all while being suspended in the air from a hammock. Engage in various activitiesA body involved in different exercises will call on different muscle groups. This type of cross training prevents overly stressing one area of muscle. Allow the body to restIn order to achieve the maximum benet of your workout, your muscles need proper nourishment. This means sleep is extremely important, but it also means resting for a few days in between workouts. A proper rest period will give muscles time to heal. MAKESUMMERe \F ITN ESS1, 4 9. Lf,

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, July 6, 2014 www.newssun.com TALLAHASSEE Floridas new medical marijuana law is creating a fierce competition to get in bed with one of 46 eligible nurseries. Ultimately, the state will hand out only five licenses for operations that will grow, compound and dispense a type of marijuana that supporters say will not get users high but will help patients such as children who have a severe form of epilepsy. The wide-open field has attracted ganjapreneurs who are making promises to the nurserymen that sound too good to be true, including claims to have an in with Gov. Rick Scotts administration. Ryan Scotson and Matt Anderson, managers of Medical Cannabis Cultivation Inc., have been making the rounds, telling potential investors and growers they have ties to Scott through their connections with Frank Kruppenbacher and Billy Rubin. Kruppenbacher is a prominent Orlando attorney and Scott fundraiser who serves as chairman of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. Rubin is one of the lobbyists closest to Scott. In an e-mail to Kerry Herndon, owner of Kerrys Nursery in Apopka, Scotson identified Kruppenbacher as the chief executive officer of MC2 and Rubin as its lobbyist. Kruppenbacher and Rubin denied their connections to the company. They have no in with the gover nors office at all. Absolutely zilch. Period. End of topic. Its comical to hear that, Kruppenbacher said. Kruppenbacher said Scotson is the father of his daughters child and attributed Scotsons claims to a lot of youthful exuberance. Rubin said he knew the men but had told them he did not want to do business with them. Everybody who applies is going to know somebody who knows somebody. But this is going to be very scrutinized at all levels, he said. Scotson would not comment on his relationship with Rubin and Kruppenbacher or on reports that he had used ties with Scotts office to strike deals with growers and investors. Our goal is to make our application stronger than anybody elses in the state, he said Knox Nursery owner Bruce Knox said he also met with Scotson. We have talked to a lot of people. The pitch that these guys are making is not dissimilar to the pitch that everybody else makes, he said.Tonya who?This years race for governor has been a constant reminder that politics makes strange bedfellows. After all, Democrats who spent years blasting former Gov. Charlie Crist when he was a Republican are now applauding him as the front-runner for their partys nomination. Another reminder came Tuesday, when former Attorney General Bill McCollum endorsed Scott and ripped Crist for refusing to release his wifes tax returns. Governor Crist always was proud to be known as Mr. Open Government, McCollum said in a statement released by Scotts campaign. I find his recent refusal to release his and his spouses tax returns very surprising and disappointing. McCollums statement made a passing reference to the 2010 GOP primary between McCollum and Scott, which the former attorney general called a very close and hard fought primary. Thats one way of putting it. In that race, the two traded shots about one of Scotts companies, Solantic. The Florida Democratic Party this week gleefully emailed reporters a link to a Miami Herald video of a Scott press conference from that time period. Scott, on McCollum: In short, Bill McCollum is the Tonya Harding of Florida politics. Bill McCollum says in one of his negative ads that no one has ever questioned his integrity. Well, Bill McCollum, I am clearly questioning your integrity today. Now in a desperate attempt to revive his dying campaign and keep his government job, Bill McCollum has unleashed a smear campaign that would impress Obama and the Chicago political machine. At the time, McCollum was also pushing to get Scott to release a deposition in a lawsuit against Solantic. Heres some of what McCollum campaign manager Matt Williams said: If Rick Scott wont come clean with Florida voters now, how can he be trusted to lead the fourth largest state in the nation during these challenging economic times.Roe V. Wade and taxesCrist, meanwhile, was interviewed this week by Ed Schultz on MSNBC and tried out an explanation for why his wife, Carole, doesnt have to release her taxes. In a unique twist, Crists statement echoed almost wordfor-word Democrats arguments when it comes to abortion. Women have a right to choose, Ed. And my wife is included in that category. She has the right to choice. And its her decision to make, Crist said.Ganjapreneurs name-dropping in pursuit of pot licenses NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA MCT PHOTOGanjapreneurs have begun jockeying to get in position for one of ve licenses that will be granted to grow the type of marijuana that will be legal in Florida under a new law. 3059447 pATA 46L ZA41, I" r4*rA __ _DODGE JOURNEYS RAM 1500-'S JEEPPATRJOT! :o,Amm"iX500 Independc.ThroughOtl-'rYsldrown erCIrrys '5 1 `nnr.30or sler ,:;WOW L An'.4 11-Lease fro199/1'Lease 36 months, 12k miles per year W.P.C. plus tax, tag and title.

Sunday, July 6, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 www.newssun.com CROSSWORD SOLUTIONSEBRING Drug Free Highlands Coalition and The Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce hosted their rst Drug Free Business Solutions Seminar the afternoon of May 28 at the Champion for Children Circle Theatre in Downtown Sebring. Panelists for the event were some of the most inuential and knowledgeable in the area: Representative Cary Pigman, Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton, Dr. Barry Hummel of Quit Doc, Attorney Taylor Davidson of DiCesare, Davidson, & Barker, and Jason Heacock and J.C. Shoop of Heacock Insurance. Attending the seminar was Jeffrey L. Roth, Director of the Champion for Children Advocacy Center, who praised the event, The expert panel was a brilliant assembly of the greatest talents our area offers in the eld of keeping the workplace drug free and limiting the liability from accidents by those who use drugs and alcohol on the job. Each panel expert had independent knowledge to share unique to their area of expertise. A few hours spent listening to those experts could save an employer thousands of dollars in time, loss prevention and legal fees. There are many facets to consider when creating a Drug Free Workplace Policy. Attorney Taylor Davidson stated, All employers should have a Drug Free Workplace Policy in place. Consult your carrier, agent, and attorney about what is required, and periodically review your compliance. One of the biggest worries for every business is Workers Compensation claims. When asked about Workers Compensation Law, Davidson offered this advice, To be a Drug Free Workplace under Florida Workers Compensation Law, employers must rigidly adhere to the notice, education and testing requirements laid out in the statute. Failing to follow the rules every time results in the loss of the presumption that the drugs or alcohol on the positive test caused the accident. If the rules are followed, a very strong defense in favor of the employer is created, which is next to impossible for the impaired employee to overcome. J.C. Shoop shared statistics from the insurance industry, Studies have shown that employers, who implement a drug free work program, have seen a 50 per cent decrease in the amount of on the job accidents. This, in turn, could save employers a signicant amount on their Workers Compensation premium. His statement spurred many comments from the audience. Shoop added, Employers in the state of Florida automatically receive a 5 percent discount on their Workers Compensation premium by establishing a drug free workplace. Many employers in attendance had questions about how their businesses might be affected if Amendment 2 passes. When approached after the seminar about Amendment 2, Representative Pigman stated, There will be substantial legislative statutory, agency regulatory, and business policy implications from any liberalization of medical marijuana use. It is vital that Floridas employers be closely involved in this discussion, and I am eager to listen. I welcomed this opportunity to participate and look forward to additional events. Amy Smith, General Manager of Central Security & Electronics, Inc., commented, Being in the Security Industry, I feel that having a drug free workplace is essential. The more knowledge we gain in this area, the better we are as employers at recognizing and enforcing our programs. The Drug Free Business Solutions Seminar was very infor mative, and the panel of experts were impressive! I am thankful that such a program was offered in Highlands County, and feel that many more of our local businesses would benet to attend. Aisha Alayande, Drug Free Highlands Coalition Coordinator, was enthusiastic about the future of the seminar, I look forward to our next event. This seminar is a necessity for our community. We have already begun to plan for our second Drug Free Business Solutions Seminar. I was happy to see other counties participate today through the use of social media. Several questions for the panel were Tweeted to us, the furthest being from Ellen Snelling, Tampa Alcohol Coalition Chair, Hillsborough County Anti Drug Alliance. We hope to have broader participation in our future seminars to cultivate a greater sense of community throughout our region. Liz Barber, President/ CEO, Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce, shared her thoughts on the event, The partner ship between Drug Free Highlands and the Sebring Chamber was a wonderful benet to our business community and Chamber members. The expertise presented at the event was top notch. Those in attendance left with a better understanding of the consequences of drugs in the workplace, and how to prevent drug-related issues in the workplace. We look forward to partnering with Drug Free Highlands Coalition again in the future. It was great to see Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce partner with Drug Free Highlands Coalition in a joint project, which fullls both their missions, said Roth. In keeping with the community spirit displayed by these organizations, several community businesses supported the seminar with donations: Brewsters Coffee House, Olive Garden Restaurant, Rent King, and Winn-Dixie (Sebring Square). Wendy Amos, Drug Free Highlands Coalitions Community Engagement Coordinator, stated, We are very thankful for every business that gave so gener ously. Their donations brought to our event a true sense of what it means to be part of the community of Sebring.

B6 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, July 6, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: I am planning to attend a birthday party for my friend Sophia who is turning 50. When I mentioned to her that I would be shopping for her birthday gift, she asked that while I was shopping for her, that I also pick up a gift for her friend Stacy. I have met Stacy only a couple of times, and I think it was extremely nervy for Sophia to ask me to do it. The party is only for her, and I dont see the connection. Sophia has done this in the past, and Im trying to think of a way to tell her Id rather not buy a gift for her friend. How should I handle this? NO LONGER A DOORMAT DEAR NO LONGER A DOORMAT: Tell Sophia with a SMILE that you are not close to Stacy, dont know her taste and do not feel comfortable shopping for her. Smiling when you say it should prevent your refusal from appearing confrontational. P.S. I agree she had a lot of nerve to ask. DEAR ABBY: We went out to dinner with another couple. The wives are psychiatric nurses; the husbands are a banker and a business owner. All of us are accustomed to dealing with sensitive issues. A woman at the table next to ours went to the ladies room. When she returned, a short train of toilet paper was caught in the waistband of her slacks. It was very obvious. There was silence, but a palpable energy, so the woman knew something was amiss and it might have something to do with her. The tissue oated with each step, so I knew it wasnt weighed down with moisture. Because I didnt perceive it to be an imminent public health threat, I joined the silent legion. Did I miss a moral imperative by not letting her know? I didnt know how to do it discreetly. If this should ever happen again, what if anything should I do? MR. MANNERS IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR MR. MANNERS: Imagine if the person with the paper trail was you or your wife. Would you want to know, so that when you got up to leave the restaurant all eyes didnt follow you out? A discreet way to have let the woman know there was a problem would have been for you or your wife to have written her a note, and given it to her server to pass to her. That way, she would know there was a problem with the least amount of embarrassment. DEAR ABBY: My husband, who is nearing 60, throws plates of food at the wall if he gets upset about something. It is usually minor and totally spontaneous. He then leaves it for me to clean up and wont apologize. I am sick of living with a 60-year-old going on 4. What can I do? HAD ENOUGH IN ILLINOIS DEAR HAD ENOUGH: How long have you been tolerating your husbands explosive outbursts of temper? Has he been breaking other things, or raising a hand to you? There are several things you can do. The rst is stop cleaning up after him. Eat separately if you have to. You could also warn him that if he doesnt seek help now for his temper that you have had it. If you need my permission to go, I am giving it to you.Across 1 Final approvals 7 Had to repay for 13 Come into 20 Total 21 Bread for burritos? 22 Break, as laws 23 Pair of pooches synchronized dash? 25 Lee of poetry 26 Altar boy 27 Broke the tape 28 Language of southern China 30 Vegas tip 31 Angle iron 33 Cold response 34 Boss personal brewing ingredient? 38 Malachite and magnetite 43 Shoves off 46 Swans Reflecting Elephants artist 48 Dredge, say 49 Guiding principles 50 Blast off? 54 Super Bowl XXXIV champs 55 With a Little Help From My Friends singer 57 Utah lily 58 Rock follower? 59 Molecule that carries energy: Abbr. 60 Go, team! 61 Not to mention 63 Cub Scout leader 66 Were boarding the elevator now, chaps! 74 One-celled critter 75 Rock producer Brian 76 Temperamental TV pooch 77 Water, chemically 78 Old orchard spray 81 Gp. led by a Grand Exalted Ruler 84 Part of a flight 86 Scared, maybe 87 Natural source of a Massachusetts dairy product? 91 Cry of triumph 93 Yogurt flavor 94 Dutch astronomer who lent his name to a cloud 95 South American border lake 97 Valentine figure 99 Result of washing political dirty laundry? 102 Theyre stuck in corners 104 Flying A rival 105 Breaking __ Hard to Do 109 carbs. 0 calories drink 113 Prompt 114 Tramp 117 Trap 118 Course that covers crop circles? 121 More puffed up 122 Way out 123 Harvey of The Piano 124 Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland, e.g. 125 Exodus challenge 126 Eventually Down 1 1978 Peace co-Nobelist 2 Big name in gas 3 Concerned query 4 Some rental agreements 5 Just 6 Let it be 7 Prefix with meter 8 Nipmuc home 9 Bewitched witch 10 Faculty boss 11 Theres a statue of him outside TD Garden 12 V-shaped slit 13 Russian infant emperor, 174014 Video game giant 15 They may be roasted 16 Panache 17 Broccoli __ 18 Ending for residents 19 TV segment? 24 Yamuna River city 29 Drawing a bead on 32 Light wood 33 ESPN figures 35 Dr. Learys turn-on 36 Bible reading 37 CEO, e.g. 39 Formally end 40 Give __ on the back 41 Univ. staff title 42 Bygone blade 43 One whos all skin and bones 44 Pindars Muse 45 Tantalize 47 One in a pack? 51 Cafeteria carrier 52 River of Florence 53 Micheners The Bridges at __ 56 English channel 60 CD-__ 62 Bill word 64 Some retired faculty 65 Reagan adviser Nofziger 67 Sauce with sole 68 Brew servers 69 Dirty Harrys rank: Abbr. 70 Dont look at me! 71 If __ Hammer 72 Type of acid found in Brussels sprouts 73 Letter after eta 78 SOS singers 79 Good earth 80 It will come __ surprise ... 82 War on Poverty org. 83 O.K.

Cool cartoon char acters lit up the screen catching the childrens attention during the childrens sermon. Later, they helped their puppet friend, Cool Dude, read the verse in childrens church. A fun felt caterpillar each body section printed with one of the attributes was arranged and rearranged by the kids till they knew the verse by heart. It says in the NIV, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. The joy of accomplishment shines on their faces as they nish. But, theyre not nished! The last sentence is really important, too. It says, Against such things there is no law. There are laws we must obey for our safety and the protec tion of others. But, if you show love, theres no law against it. If you exemplify joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and gentleness, you can do so freely. And then theres self-control. Now thats a hard one. But, its vital because when we have self-control through the counsel of the Holy Spirit, we magnify the Lord to others. A life out of control will probably have trouble exhibiting the rest of the fruit. I cant help compare that with the way our republic was set up. Once we won our independence, our government was given enough power to serve the people. Checks and balances were put in place in our Constitution and the Bill of Rights adopted. Our founding fathers realized that those who would maintain freedom must be able to exercise self-control. But, sadly, when I look upon our nation today, we see out-ofcontrol government. Even government cant operate in a benecial manner without restraint. Through too much government in terference, people have become dependent on government instead of God. In a Supreme Court Decision, 1892, we read, Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of The Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian. But, the foundations are being shaken. Christianity is being threatened while all other beliefs are tolerated. Lets be a people who embrace all that our nation stood for since its inception, practicing self-control personally and electing statesmen who will do likewise governmentally. Spiritual fruit is borne of persons who acknowledge God, personally and as a nation. SelahJan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. Self-government, self-restraint Jan MeropPAUSE & CONSIDER NEW YORK Business owners who dont want to pay for their employees birth control are ending that coverage after the Supreme Court said they could choose on grounds of religious belief not to comply with part of the health care law. Some owners are already in touch with their brokers following Mondays ruling. Triune Health Group Ltd. wants to know how soon it can change its coverage to stop paying for all contraceptives, said Mary Anne Yep, co-owner of the Oak Brook, Illinois, company, which provides medical management services. We were ready to go when we heard the decision, she said. Triune, which has 80 employees, had led lawsuits against the U.S. government and Illinois because of requirements that they pay for contraception. The Supreme Court ruled that some businesses can, because of their religious beliefs, choose not to comply with the health care laws requirement that contraception coverage be provided to workers at no extra charge. The 5-4 ruling has President Barack Obamas administration looking for another way to provide birth control for women who work for those companies. The ruling applies to businesses that are closely held, generally dened as having ve or fewer individuals owning more than 50 percent of the companys stock. By some estimates, 90 percent of businesses are closely held and employ about half the nations labor force of more than 155 million. While employers are not yet required to provide insurance under the health care law, many closely held companies do, and under the health care law insurance is required to include contraceptive benets. However, its unknown how many closely held companies offer insurance, how many workers they have and how many companies plan to stop paying for contraception. But its likely many companies will continue providing coverage for birth control, which would reduce the number of affected workers. A survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found 85 percent of large employers already paid for contraceptives before the health care law required it. Many owners said they believe its an important benet that helps them attract and retain good workers. Even employers who want to opt out of some forms of birth control coverage see covering others as important. We want to provide for good health care for our people. We just dont want to fund abortive procedures, said Mike Sharrow, owner of C12 Group in San Antonio, with six employees. His company, which provides faith-based counseling for business owners, has always paid for what he calls traditional forms of contraception, such as birth control pills. Business owners interviewed by The Associated Press that dont want to pay for contraceptive coverage said their insurers were still trying to gure out how to change their policies. It is possible employees might still be able to get birth con trol coverage through their plans but pay for that portion of their insurance themselves. The contraceptives at issue in Mondays decision are two known as morning-after pills, the emergency contraceptives Plan B and ella; and two intrauter ine devices, which are implantable devices inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. Many owners objected to them because they believe they may work after conception occurs. However, on Tuesday, the court left in place lower-court rulings in other cases that allowed businesses to refuse to pay for all methods of government-approved contraception. The case decided by the Supreme Court involved two companies, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. About 50 others also led suit against the health care laws contraception requirement. Hobby Lobby has more than 15,000 full-time employ ees while Conestoga has about 950. Hobby Lobby is by far the largest employer among the 50 or so for-prots that sued. Some of the companies that have sued received court injunc tions allowing them not to pay for birth control. The Supreme Courts ruling is expected to allow them to continue that policy.Ruling impact on birth control coverage mixed By JOYCE M.
