At the time, Arfons was attempting to break the world water speed record of 317.6 MPH set by Australian Ken Warby in 1978. To accomplish the task, he had designed and fabricated a 5,500 horsepower jet hydroplane. The 25-foot RainX Record Challenger was built with Kevlar/ berglass foamcore construction. The 2,500 pound craft had been the rst all-composite boat built speci cally for the world water speed record. It was powered by a General Electric/Westinghouse J85/CJ610 turbine that normally powers Learjets.

Last month, Sebring Mayor John Shoop said he had discovered the city had $9,230 in money set aside in county recreation impact fees for the current scal year. If we dont use it, it will just go back to the county, Shoop warned Sebring city council members at their June 17 meeting. He suggested the money might well be used for a new pavilion at Veterans Beach as well as improvements to a tness trail to be constructed by the Sebring YMCA at the Max Long Complex. Shoop, who serves on the RPAC committee, said that in addition to the money to be expended this scal year, there apparently is another $7,000 allocated for the City on the Circle to be expended in the 2014-15 scal year. At their following session July 1, council members voted to go ahead with both of the projects. The pavilion that City has extra recreation money to spend Katara Simmons/News-SunA new pavilion at Veterans Beach is in the planning stages. It will be built with RPAC funds that must be spent by the city or else they will be refunded to the county.

M axcy runs a fullservice ne art lifestyle photography business based in Sebring. After achieving her bache lors in studio art from F lorida State Univer sity where she focused on design and pho tography, she practiced in the eld of design for six years before pursuing her masters in graphic design at North Carolina State University in 2010. It was through this journey that she honed her artistic craft and developed a way of seeing that fuels her photography today. I didnt set out to train and educate my self to be the best photographer out there, M axcy said. With a camera in hand I sim ply found myself setting out to see and celebrate the world the same world that each and every one of us pass by every single day with open eyes and an open heart. Her teaching experi ence has included everything from This is the D ay Photography Workshops, One on One Mentoring Ses sions, Childrens Academy of Art and Theater after school ar t pro gram as well as her upcoming Highlands Art League courses and photography exhibit, which is scheduled to open on Aug. 1. Maxcy has donated her time and talents to capture images and tell stories all the way from rural communities in the heart of the Peru to orphanages in Mexico to her own backyard. I always knew I wanted to be an educa tor at some point along my path, Maxcy said. Education for me is not about technology, tools and rules of the trade (although I do teach that), it is much more about setting a heart on re and giv ing it the proper tools, kno w how and con dence to get out there and actually do some thing. It is about making an individual excited about the world that is in fr ont of them. For more informa tion or to register for classes visit www.

www.newssun.comWednesday, July 9, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | A5 Hillary Clinton called the Hobby Lobby deci sion deeply disturbing. The White House re acted like the world had just ended. H arry Reid promised that Democrats in Con gress would ght to pr eserve womens access to contraceptive cov erage and keep bosses out of the examination room. All this liberal hys teria followed the Supreme Courts ruling on M onday that for-prof it employers who have r eligious objections can not be forced to provide their employees with contr aception cov erage under the rules of ObamaC are. The challenge to whats left of Obam aCare in the Hobby Lobby case was brought to the S upreme Court by Hobby Lobby, a nation al chain of craft stores o wned by evangelical Christians from Oklaho ma. H obby Lobbys own ers, and the owners of other businesses that supported them, werent seeking to deprive their 13,000 employees of all contraception coverage in their health plans, just certain kinds that they had religious and moral objections to. The business owners didnt want to be forced by ObamaCare man dates to provide the mor ning-after pill and certain intrauterine de vices because they considered those contraceptive methods to be the equiv alent of an abor tion. Of course liberals and progressives i.e., most of the mainstream Bi coastal media dont car e what a bunch of religious people from Oklahoma think. Freedom of religion my hat. Barrack, Hill ary and Harry believe free contraception for every American woman is a new constitutional right and companies should be forced to pay for every dime of it. Hillary, showing her famous empathy for poor people like her, blurted out her kneejerk spin: Its very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs con traception, which is pr etty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employers health care plan because her employer doesnt think she should be us ing contraception. H illary got it dou bly wrong. She made it seem that contr acep tion is affordable only to non-r ich people like her and that Hobby Lob by was seeking to deny its emplo yees all contra ception coverage. B ut exaggeration and fear-mongering is part of the Democrat game plan. They want all women to think the Hobby Lobby ruling is just the latest campaign in the never-ending Re publican/conservative war on women. N obodys taking your contraceptive options away. You still have plen ty of choices. Purchase y our own birth control. Dont have sex. Get a new job. Nobody is forced to go to work for Hobby Lobby or any other company. If youre not happy with your employers contra ception benet package, nd another job wher e theyll provide all the free things you want.Michael Reagan is the son of President Ronald Reagan, a political consultant, and au thor. Send comments to Reagan@caglecartoons.com. Guest columns are the opin ion of the writer, not necessar ily those of the News-Sun staff. VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEWA community workshop is planned for 6 / p .m. Thursday, July 31 at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Civ ic Center. The subject is whether or n ot to develop a government-spon sored expansion of Highlands parks a nd recreation opportunities. The topic is not new. Sporadic discussions concerning outdoor recre ation have been held over the years on the municipal lev el as well as by the county as a whole. The issue of costs and how to proportion them has also been an active debate for sever al years. I n December 2013, the county com mission approved reviewing a detailed planning guide it commissioned fr om the Central Florida Regional Planning Council specically focused on the future of parks and recreation in the county. The plan is called County wide Open Space Parks and Recre ation Master Plan. Nothing has been decided, nor will it, until the coun ty commission has had more time to consider all the facets of the plan and heard from citizens. This is the main reason the work shop is being held, and why a postcard survey soliciting citizen opinions is ongoing. Survey postcards can be be found at the N ews-Sun ofce, most government ofces, South Flor ida State College, the school board, and local chambers of commer ce. The survey and additional information are available at www.cfrpc.org/highland sparksandrec/. W e strongly endorse enhancing our countys outdoor recreation facilities and parks. We also believe protecting conservation land is a high priority. While families, children and seniors must all be taken into account, chil dren should be considered rst. F or example: Swimming lessons save lives, but not all families can af ford them. Many children have no ac cess to golf courses or tennis courts, and so miss out on opportunities that could change their lives or provide a life-long opportunity to meet new people and make friends. Summer youth camps provide supervised play, improve tness and keep children off the streets and out of harms way. If the county truly wants to grow, it will have to attract more people to it. This means we have to come up with opportunities that makes us not just a destination, but a place to live. Ex panded hiking, biking and horse rid ing trails would be a huge plus, especially if the trails can be connected to other counties or cities Some of our lakes could be wonder ful sites for specialized activities. Or consider a r ock wall climbing park. Finally, creating open spaces where families can have relaxed picnics, throw a frisbee, or just run barefoot in the grass relaxes tensions while creat ing the good memories that last. NEWS-SSUnN Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com NEWS-JOURnNAL Scott Dressel News-Sun Editor editor@newssun.com Mat Delaney News-Journal Editormedlaney@lakeplacidjournal.netFrom time to time I see press releases cross the news desk that arent really press releases. In stead they are lled with nuggets of infor mation that I do think should be shared, but they are far from a press release. Today I want to share one such release from the Environmental Pro tection Agency. They are tips that ar e good for your health, your wallet and the environment. %  F or those people who suffer with heart and lung disease or those older adults and chil dren who are risk from par ticles in the air, closely monitoring the air quality in the area is crucial. The EPA says AirNows Air Quality Index (AQI) translates data into color catego ries so people can better understand what actions to take to protect their health. F or more information and a re al-time map, visit www. air now.gov/. The AQI via mobile application can be downloaded for your smartphone at http://m. epa.gov/apps/airnow. html. %  F or those who head to the beach as often as possible, remember to swim safely, protect yourself from the sun with broad-spectrum sunscreen, stay hydrated by drinking water, watch for trash and other signs of pollution, and report dangers you see to life guards or other beach wor kers. For more infor mation on beach safety, visit water .epa.gov/type/ oceb/beaches/dosdonts. cfm. %  O ne thing that I used to never worry about was bed bugs, but since they have become such a topic of discussion in recent years there is not a time now when I stay in a hotel that I dont pull the sheets down and examine the beds closely. Ive never thought about look ing closely at the headboard, but the EPA suggests that as well. Other tips it suggests to av oid bringing home those nasty unwelcome vis itors: leave your luggage on a luggage rack, not on the bed or oor and try to keep luggage away from the bed. A dditional tips on avoid ing bed bugs can be found at www2.epa.go v/ bedbugs/tips-travel. %  I don t know about you, but the summer months just about kill my wallet. The EPA says the average family spends about 20 percent of its home utility bill on cooling. Cooling bills can be lowered by giv ing your air-conditioner a break while you are asleep or when no one is home. Properly using a programmable thermo stat can save you $180 a y ear on your energy bill. If youre in the market for a new air condition er, dehumidier, or ceiling fan the EPA suggests looking for one that has earned the ENERGY STAR label at www.ener gystar.gov/cooling. %  M any people love the outdoors during the summer months. Whether it is shing, camping, swimming or attending your childs ball games, we need to protect ourselves from those nasty insects. While some insect bites are benign, biting in sects can carry dangerous diseases. Using the r ight insect repel lent and taking preventive actions can repel ticks, mosquitoes, and other biting insects. Guidelines for areas to avoid bites and clothing to wear, can be found at epa.gov/pesticides/in sect/preventive_actions. htm A dditional resourc es are available at epa. go v/pesticides/insect/ safe.htm. %  And always be sunwise. Check the Ultraviolet (UV) Index anytime by download ing EPAs app (epa.gov/ envir o/mobile) to plan outdoor activities while preventing overexpo sure to the sun. Apply a palm-full of sunscr een with SPF 30 or high er that provides broadspectr um protection 15 minutes before head ing outdoors. Reapply ev ery two hours. Wear protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses. Seek shade between 10 / a.m. and 4 / p.m. Learn more at www2.epa.gov/sunwise/ action-steps-sun-safety. The important thing is to enjoy the summer while making sure to take care of yourself and those little ones.Romona Washington is pub lisher and executive editor of the News-Sun and News-Jour nal.

FANCY FROM PAGE A A 1holder Walt Arfons, he originally had ap proached the Sebring city council with the idea in 1987 and had secured their blessing for the use of of the big lake. Over the course of the next 24 months, Arfons and represen tatives of his company World Speed Records worked to secur e sponsorship and the sanctioning of both the American Power Boat Associa tion and the Union of I nternational Motor boating to make cer tain he would be able to wr est the King Ed ward III cup back from A ustralia. Crowds gathered periodically around the lake to watch his speed trials, and Ar fons made several r uns on the lake with out incident. Unofcial times of as fast as 294 miles per hour were recorded, but his announced goal was 350 mph. On Saturday, July 8, 1989, Arfons put his boat in the water and tried to make a run up Lake Jackson, but had to abort the run, not ing that the water in the nor th end of the lake was simply too choppy to be safe. An evening run also had to be cut short. When there is any question about the conditions, you cut the throttle, he was quoted as saying at the time. Thousands had ringed the lake to watch the world re cord attempt the next day with people com ing in from all over the state of F lorida especially from the Sarasota and Trea sure Coast areas where ther e had been heavy publicity about the quest. It was on the calm Sunday morning of July 9 that Arfons put out for its initial world record run. The plan was to start at the north end of the lake and head toward Sun set Beach. H e was well into his rst pass and report edly was traveling at an estimated 370 mph when experts said it appeared that Arfons let the afterburner run a few seconds longer than he initially had planned. According to said Lt. Dale Knapp of the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Com mission, who did the subsequent inv estigation with the Florida H ighway Patrol, Arfons was going so fast the boat lifted off the sur face and he no longer was able to contr ol it. By the time Arfons shut down the after burner and released the chute it was too late. The craft lift ed off the lake surface and the boat star ted to tumble out of control, disintegrating as it im pacted. H e was transported to Highlands Regional Medical Center where he died about an hour after arriving. Arfons became the sixth driv er to die in quest of the world r ecord since it was rst set in 1937. Later, a memorial service was held at the south end of the lake with a wreath of ow ers cast onto the waters. A video entitled Quest for the Re cord, was released just pr ior to Arfons fateful run. The video chronicled both his ef fort at WSR as well as suppor t from the Se bring community. AA R fF ONS FROM PAGE A A 1child neglect without great bodily harm.

The proposed new tness trail is slated to be built on land adja cent to the YMCA and soccer elds at the M ax Long Complex. That would consist of a running trail with as many as 20 tness stations. The project is set to be built by the YMCA, but jointly maintained between the YMCA and the city.

The company an nounced the six separate recalls Tuesday. No injur ies, accidents or res related to any of the defects have been reported, Ford said. The largest recall, of 92,022 vehicles, affects the 2013-2014 Ford Taurus, Lincoln MKS and Police Intercep tor sedans; 2013-2014 F ord Flex and Lincoln MKT crossovers; 20122014 Edge crossover and 2014 Lincoln MKX crossover. Ford says the right-hand half shaft, which is part of the axle isnt properly seated and may disen gage over time, making the vehicles inoperable. The vehicles are also at r isk of rolling unexpectedly if they are parked without the parking brake on. Ford will notify own ers of the vehicles in the halfshaft r ecall by mail beginning the week of Aug. 25. In all of the cases, dealers will repair the vehicles for free. Ford is also recalling: %  5,264 2011-2014 F59 commercial stripped chassis.

Police said she pushed the babys stroller from a train onto a platform at the Columbus Circle sta tion on Monday and then got back on the train. Authorities found Frankea Dabbs, 20, just after midnight Tues day near Central Park, ar ound 72nd Street and Broadway. They arrested her late Tuesday morn ing on charges of child abandonment and act ing in a manner injurious to a child. It was not immediately known who her attor ney would be. The mother told de tectives in a preliminary interview that she is fr om North Carolina and came to New York on July 2. She said the babys father died re cently in California. She felt she couldnt take care of the baby and thought she was leaving her in a safe public space, said Ste phen Davis, spokesman for the New York P olice Department. The baby, who is about 10 months old, was examined at Roo sevelt Hospital, and doctors found no ap parent signs of trauma, police said.

A uthorities were no tied of the mothers wher eabouts by some one who recognized her fr om photos and video police released showing a wom an pushing the child thr ough a subway turn stile gate. A passenger had seen the woman and child board the train at 42nd Street and Seventh Av enue, police said. The passenger got off at C o lumbus Circle and noticed the unattended str oller on the platform and the mother inside the train. After the train pulled away, the passenger re mained with the baby for about 20 minutes When the mother did not return, she notied a subway worker who called police. A city law that allows people to take an un wanted baby to a rehouse, police station or hospital with no ques tions asked would not hav e applied in this case because it only pertains to infants 5 days old or younger.NYPD arrests mother who left baby at subway station

The br eakup of LeB ron James and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was bey ond bitter. But now, as James considers a return to the team he aban doned four years ago with an entir e region breathlessly await ing a homecoming it couldn t imagine in its wildest dreams, it ap pears there has been some healing betw een the NBA superstar and his former boss. Once aligned as bas ketball partners, James and G ilbert could bare ly stand the sight of each other dur ing Mi amis games in Cleveland the past four y ears. It was an intense standoff, awkward and seemingly irreparable. Time may have xed their fractured rela tionship. M ost of the rest of the city has already for given James. Clev eland, without a major sports cham pionship to celebrate in almost 50 y ears, is praying for a reunion. On Sunday, Cavs fans ocked to social me dia to feverishly track one of G ilberts pri vate jets as it ew to F ort Lauderdale, where the planes occupants dodged reporters and TV cameras with some deception. Its not known if Gil bert was on the jet or if the tr ip was even NBA-related but that didnt douse the free-agency restorm. As James decision nears, theres a re newed hope the prodigal son will come home But in the backdrop looms the James-Gil bert relationship. J ames is giving seri ous thought to returning to Cleveland, to going home and making amends with the city for the one misstep in an otherwise impecca ble NBA career. T uesday is the fouryear anniversary of an nouncing he was taking my talents to South B each, and the city is once again on hold. James is set to meet with Heat president Pat Riley, who was able to lure the four-time league MVP to Miami in 2010 but could be running out of time to convince him to stay. Two people familiar with the situation said James will meet with Riley in the next two or three days. On Monday, the Heat announced they in tend to sign free agents D anny Granger and Josh McRoberts when the leagues morato rium ends later this w eek. Riley must hope those moves, and may be another couple, are enough to keep J ames. The time and place of their critical meeting remains unknown. James holds all the cards. Its his choice.James, Cavs owner could mend differences, reunite

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, July 9, 2014 www.newssun.com I hope you all enjoyed Americas holiday and got to spend time with family and friends. I also hope you enjoyed some good food. Yesterday, I was in a supermarket getting something for Lauren and me to eat for dinner and I noticed a huge display of Tomatillos, so I decided to get a few of them. Then I thought, What exactly are tomatillos? Tomatillos (Physalis Philadelphica) are originally from Mexico and are closer related to cape gooseberries than regular tomatoes. Then are a staple in Mexican cuisine and are used to make green sauces and sometimes added to soups or stews. When they are ripe, they will have a husk around them that will appear to be dry and usually the husk will have cracked open exposing what looks like a green tomato. After getting the to matillos, I also grabbed a couple of avocados and two large white onions. Then I spotted some cilantro and I kind of got mad at myself because I should be growing it in my backyard instead of buying it because it is so easy to maintain. Once I got home, I decided to make a salsa with them and serve that with some sh tacos. So here is a simple recipe for a tomatillo salsa that would be good on lots of things. You might even try it on your scrambled eggs at breakfast or maybe on a burger. Cheers, Chef.Tomatillo avocado salsa6 ounce fresh, green tomatillo 1 ounce chopped fresh yellow onions 1/2 cup water 1/2 tsp. fresh, peeled, minced garlic cloves 1/4 cup fresh, chopped cilantro 1/2 each fresh, cubed avocado 1/2 tsp. honey 1/4 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. (or less) ground black pepperPreparation1. Remove husks from tomatillos and rinse well. Place in a pot of boiling water with the onions and blanch for ve minutes to soften the tomatillos. Drain, reserving cooking water. 2. Place cooled cooked tomatillos and onions in a blender with the remaining ingredients and puree until smooth. Add some of the reserved water to thin to a salsa consistency. Portion size: two tablespoons.What to do with a tomatillo Tim SpainCHEFS CORNER BILL HOGAN/CHICAGO TRIBUNE/MCTThe tomatillo has been used by Aztec and Mayan cooks for centuries but can be found around the world and add zing to many dishes. Tim Spain is System Executive Chef with Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and Morrison Healthcare Food Service. He can be reached by email at TimmieSpain@ IamMorrison.com.Summer is peak strawberry season and the perfect time to enjoy one of Americas favorite fruits. While available year-round, California strawberries are most plentiful from May through August with the state producing nearly 90 percent of strawber ries grown in the entire country. Not only are strawberries delicious, these pretty red gems also offer many health benets. In fact, eating just eight medium size strawberries a day may improve heart and brain health, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of some cancers. Sweet additions California strawberries are versatile, making them ideal additions to summer dishes. Fresh, seasonal ingredients bring avorful bursts to recipes at my restaurants and home, said Brian Malarkey, celebrity chef, restaurateur and spokesperson for the California Strawberry Commission. I love incorporating the natural taste of straw berries in both sweet and savory dishes for an unexpected hint of sweetness. From fresh fish and salads to lemonade and even barbecue sauce, just add strawberries to give any meal scrumptious summer flavor. For additional recipes by Chef Malarkey and more, visit www. californiastrawber ries.com.

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com Hope yours was a wonderful and glorious Fourth of July weekend, lled with lots of fun, fellowship and food. Cindy and I dove into the three-day weekend with no set plans. It was our nations birthday and, surely, there would be plenty to do. We werent disappointed. There were more events than we could attend but we made the most of those we managed to schedule into a too-short time frame. Independence Day started for us with a breakfast in downtown Sebring, followed by a stop at Highlands Little Theater for a stirring patriotic revue featuring the Highlands County Pops concert band. Vocalists joined in, too, leading the crowd in a medley of patriotic tunes. We left the theatre beaming with patriotic feelings and ventured next door for Downtown Sebrings red, white and blue celebration. Then we headed back to Lake Placid in time for a barbecue dinner at the VFW Post on County Road 621 where we caught up with some more old friends. Then we were off to Lake June Park to witness the spectacular reworks show made possible by the Lake Placid Jaycees. The 20 minute-plus pyrotechnic show again drew crowds that jammed public parks and ringed the eastern end of Lake June. We were worried early Friday that storms were going to roll in and drench the reworks. But by early evening it was evident the Lake Placid Jaycees reworks show would not have to compete with the fury of Mother Nature. We watched the rockets red glare, bombs bursting in air as we listened to patriotic music from a nearby car stereo. Adults and children alike seemed to enjoy the pyrotechnic display as they munched on snacks, lounged on blankets and played on the grass. We heard of adventures of the Fourth of July spent swimming and boating on area lakes, visits to Highlands Hammock State Park, and a few friends said they spent the day grilling food for their families. The Fourth of July was a grand celebration but it was much more, too. I get a tingle down my spine when I think of all the sacrices that have made it possible for us to celebrate our independence.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, July 9, 2014 www.newssun.com Lake Placid Elks Lodge 2661 sponsored six boys from STR8 UP Youth Ministry to go away to camp at Umatilla. This was the rst time any of the youngsters had been to summer camp, according to Elks Youth Camp chairperson Evelyn Cresse. Last year we sent two kids from the Potters House, Cresse said. I wanted to send more kids. This year we were able to send six, next year I am hopeful for 10. The camp is rated number one in America. It boasts wooden cabins, two swimming pools, an indoor gymnasium, ar chery lessons, a kickball eld and much more. My favorite parts were the pool and capture the ag, said Travelle Wiggins. I hope I can go again next year. Sammy and Dana Telesco, president and vice president respectively of STR8 UP Youth Ministry, took the boys to the camp and back in a vehicle loaned from Happiness Farms. We werent sure what to expect from the boys when they got there, said Sammy Telesco. We thought they (the boys) might be timid because they had never been before. They took off as soon as we got there. No hugs and barely a goodbye. Attending summer camp were Quwesmael Sholtz, Erskine Tolliver, Mark Martin, Brandon Martin, Rayshawn Legree and Travelle Wiggins. The six talked animatedly on the ride home about the fun they had and showed off leather wallets and bracelets made in arts and crafts. They spoke of new friends they made from exotic places such as Puerto Rico and, closer to home, Gainesville. Facebook will help them stay in touch with their new friends. My favorite parts were basketball games, swimming, archery and arts and crafts, Sholtz said excitedly. Lake Placid won capture the ag. I would love to go next year but the camp only goes up to 13. The children and STR8 UP thank Cresse and the Lake Placid Elks for making the summer a memorable one.STR8 UP Youth return from Elks CampBy KIM LEATHERMANNEWS-JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT Returning home from a week at Elks summer camp were (left to right) Mark Martin, Rayshawn Legree, STR8 UP vice president Dana Telesco, Brandon Martin, Travelle Wiggins, Quwesmael Sholtz, and Erskin Tolliver.

B6 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, July 9, 2014 www.newssun.com OK, so its summer and we have lots of fun things to do outside the home, but home is still home, so here are a few odds and ends that you can do to improve your interiors with little effort and little cost. Do you have toss pillows on your couch? One pair might look a bit skimpy so use two pairs and make them coordinate but not match exactly for greater interest. If you have a small bedroom, perhaps a tall bed with a tall headboard will look better than tiny furniture. The illusion will be a bigger room. Do you love wallpaper? Here are a few places you might not have thought of putting it. Consider covering sliding closet doors with wallpaper or even wallpapering the ceiling. A wallpapered foyer sets the scene and makes a good rst impression. The kitchen can take on a fresh new look simply by replacing the pulls and knobs on the cabinets. If you have a large bathroom, an area rug will do well in there rather than bathroom throw rugs. It will give the room a stable look and the rug will withstand use much longer. The dining room can get an uplift also. The chairs do not have to all match. Making the two head chairs differ ent from the rest will make the room look even more special than it is. Do you only use this room occasionally? Perhaps using it as a library or a collection display table will make more use out of it yearround, then when the need for dining is there, simply store the items for a day or two. Nothing softens and adds life to a dull cor ner like a potted plant or tree. If you want to make it even better, add lights behind it. Organization is always a great need in any home as is extra storage. There are drawer dividers you can buy for your drawers giving specic space for specic things and making the contents of the drawers well organized. Instead of a cocktail table, consider an oversized ottoman. This way you can put your feet up whenever you want, yet use it as a table by placing a tray on it when needed. Putting a large mirror across from a window will bounce more light into the room and make the room look bigger. If you have a guest room that is rarely used, turn it into an ofce by taking the doors off the closet and inserting a bulletin board, shelves and a desk into that space. There can still be a pull-out sofa bed in the room for the guests and if necessary, you can purchase a clothes rack for use when guests are visiting.

We didnt set them up; they met at some parties. Last summer we discovered they were having sex because Meghan thought she was pregnant. Luckily, it turned out she wasnt. They broke up but have gotten back together recently. When I asked Mona if she was putting Meghan on birth control, Mona said that she wouldnt because that would be letting her know its OK to have sex. I said, Better safe than sorry! and we left it at that. I let my son use my car last weekend and found an opened box of emergency contraception on the floor. Because my son never answers his phone, I called Meghan and stressed to her that unprotected sex is irresponsible and that they arent ready for a baby. I warned her to take precautions and get on birth control, and I helped her to make the arrangements. Was it wrong to discuss this behind her mothers back? Should I tell Mona after promising Meghan I wouldnt say anything? What should I do? MOM VERSUS FRIEND DEAR MOM: Wrong? You deserve a medal. And you should now have the conversation with your son that you should have had before the first pregnancy scare, stressing to him the importance of using condoms not only to protect himself and Meghan from an unplanned pregnancy, but also an STD if she isnt the only girl hes having sex with. Girls dont get pregnant all by themselves. As to telling your friend Mona, who seems to have the parental insight of an ostrich where her daughter is concerned, keep your promise to Meghan and your lips sealed. Meghan needs a woman she can confide in, and your friend seems to prefer living in fantasyland rather than giving her daughter the support and guidance she needs. DEAR ABBY: I live in Colorado. In my state marijuana is legal now. What do you think about my inviting my adult children (they are all over 21) and my aging dad to get stoned with me? I think it might stimulate conversation and motivate more family time than we spend together now. What do you think of family night with marijuana as a way to improve family unity? ORIGINAL THINKER IN DENVER DEAR ORIGINAL THINKER: Were you stoned when you wrote this? If not, I think its sad that your family would need pot in order to communicate or create family unity. While I applaud your desire to bring your family together, you can have a good time without inviting Mary Jane. And thats what Id recommend.

NEWS-SUN385-6155 AVON PARK The June Yard of the Month Award was presented to Gale and Wayne Bass, 5382 E. Felber Road, where some people would call way out in the country. A member of the Avon Park Founders Garden Club was driving in the area and saw Gale working in her yard. When the member came back to ask if she would accept the award, Wayne told the story of how the landscape project came about. Gale wanted to plant some owers around the oak tree in the front yard, but there was no irrigation to the area. She asked Wayne if he would put in irrigation. He told her that if she would dig the trench for the pipes he would put them in. Well, she dug the trench, so he had to put in the irrigation. Together they brought in soil and built a mound. Today there are liriope and Aztec grass, colorful caladium plants and knockout roses planted around the tree. An enormous staghorn fern is hanging from the tree. An oldfashioned hand pump and a concrete goose that Gale rescued from someones trash add interest to the area. And elevated sprinklers provide water. When this area of the yard was complete, Gale decided to go further and add plants along the front porch of the home. There was another trench to dig and more irrigation to install. Now when you look at the home you see variegated liriope, Aztec grass with spikes of pur ple owers, several knockout rose bushes, huge caladium plants, dusty miller, pentas, coleus and several plants that Wayne calls grove peppers loaded with colorful mini hot peppers whose seeds were planted by birds. Other plants in the yard include ti plants, hibiscus, plumbago, lantana and sunower. Confederate jasmine winds around a trellis built by a grandson. Hanging pots hold asparagus fern and moss rose while geraniums, marigolds and a large Boston fern are in ground pots.

A feel good moment came when we planted a tree that had been gifted to us at Christmas with instructions to plant in the spring. We missed springtime planting but our tree already looks stately in its new location in our front yard. Then we were off to run errands and spend time with friends. We closed out the day with a little exploring from the comfort of our golf cart. We cruised back roads and side streets in Leisure Lakes until the rst drops of rain chased us home just ahead of a thunderstorm. Sunday found us taking a little slower approach to the day. We managed to complete a few projects around the house ... the chores that need to be done to ready for another week: laundry, grocery shopping, etc. The slower pace was just ne with me. Somewhere amongst all the taste treats I sampled Friday and Saturday was some little bug that decided Sunday would be a good day to ght back. There are no words to adequately describe the churning in my stomach. For a while I was worried this stomach bug would kill me. Then I was worried it was going to let me live and continue to torment me. Finally it subsided, somewhat, and some idea of health was restored. All that in just three days. Bates Sons and Daughters Caladiums has potted varieties of its plants available for purchase just in time to help set the mood and the theme for the 24th annual Caladium Festival set to unfold July 25, 26 and 27 in uptown Lake Placid.
