NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 192750 Sebring starts strong at AAA state tourney in ArcadiaA10Lake Placid gearing up for 24th annual Caladium FestivalA3 www.newssun.com Wednesday-Thursday, July 16-17, 2014 An Edition of the Sun Good Morning ToAudrey Aubin Thanks for reading! SEBRING PAGE B1 BY KIRSTEN SCARBOROUGH NEWS-SUN INTERN SEBRING This years Winter Fest event, put on by Sebrings Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sun Coast, will not only go down in history as their 10th year event anniversary, but also as the year Dr. Thakkar donated $10,000. The festival takes place at the Sebring Raceway, offering a variety of activities for attendees, such as a rock climbing wall, face painting, laser tag, carnival games, live entertainment, food vendors and, of course, lots of snow. Our event is really targeted for kids; we want them to have a good time and enjoy themselves, said Kiko Vazquez, event coordinator and community relations Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters. The highlight of the day is real snow that is available for attendees to play in, as well as an area to ride tubes down a 12-foot snow slide. The goal is to bring new activities to each years event, Vazquez said. We want to put a twist on things by bringing items from previous years back for this years anniversary. One thing in particular that will differ with this years approaching event is the generous donation being made by Dr. Vinod C. Thakkar of $10,000 for the organizations 10 year anniversary of Winter Fest. Thakkar is a gastroenterology specialist at the Surgery & Endoscopy Center. Dr. Thakkar has always supported our program and has been involved with supporting kids for a long time, Vazquez said.Thakkars donate $10K to Big Brothers Big Sisters 10th annual Winter Fest The snow slide was a new addition to last years ninth annual Winter Fest Outdoor Community Festival in Sebring. Dr. Vinod Thakkar has donated $10,000 to help fund the 10th annual Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast event scheduled for Jan. 2015.

B2 BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING County commissioners voted Tuesday to go along with proposed Military Airport Zones and incorporate them into the countys comprehensive land development regulations. Noting that under the agreement the MAZs would take precedent over county statutes, the commission made their approval speci c only to the zones as currently proposed and that any changes would have to come back for further approval by the board. That concession was brought after an impassioned plea by resident Dale P ug, who pointed out that as written, the overlay takes precedence should it run into a con ict with the countys land development regulations. If there is a change, you will have to comply, he said. Commissioner Don Elwell again extracted promises that variances would be part of the zones as presented to the board in the nal document. He was also assured that height and other restrictions are governed by the countys engineering department as well as the planning and zoning commission and not variances granted by County adopts Air Force MAZ plans Clouds left over from Monday afternoons thunderstorms made for a spectacular sunset over Lake Jackson On golden Lake Jackson BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING A budget hearing last week for the city of Sebring may mean municipal Planner Jim Polatty may again lose his postilion.

Weinterruptyourgolfseasontoremindyouthatyouaremarriedandwanttostaymarried3058961 BY KIM LEATHERMAN NEWS-JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT The town of Lake Placid and its merchants are gearing up and sprucing up for the much anticipated Caladium Festival 2014 which will be held July 25-26-27. Medians and parks have been mowed, mulched and manicured. Artists have been seen touching up the paint on some of the uniquely-designed trash cans in the uptown area. New window displays have been set. Store front windows are gleaming; some have been painted. Nu Hope Thrift Store on South Main Avenue has a fresh scene painted on its windows. Lake Placid High School junior Norma Pratts said she was thrilled to be asked to paint the windows. The establishment now boasts a depiction of an antique pickup truck over owing with caladiums. I thought of the truck because its vintage, explained the 17-year-old. I thought it worked well because Nu Hope has vintage items also. Other windows have clusters multicolored caladiums. Pratts thought of making a family of caladium people and employee Dale Moore created them from items found in the second hand store. Bates Suns & Daughters Caladiums donated the bulbs that now grace the entrance of Nu Hope. At the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative, volunteers and artists have been busy rotating and changing merchandise to complement the coming seasons. Ice cream will be served in the back room of the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative during the Caladium Festival and artists will provide demonstrations of their craft. Walgreens will set up tents in its parking lot and give out free cold water. According to the Lake Placid store manager, pharmacists will provide free blood pressure checks, too. Some stores that are normally closed on Saturdays will be open or open later than usual. Additional employees and volunteers have been asked to work during the Caladium Festival weekend. STR8 UP Youth Ministry lent a hand at the Noon Rotary Park on Interlake Boulevard by weeding landscape beds and planting new caladium bulbs. They also planted new bulbs at the Womans Club on North Main Avenue. Classic cars, bikes and trucks will be sporting new coats of wax to prepare for the Saturday, July 26 classic car show in DeVane Park. Swamp buggies and airboats will take their place on Sunday, July 27 in the same venue.

www.newssun.comWednesday, July 16, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | A5 VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSWe wonder what the decision makers at the United States Postal Service were thinking when they decided it would be a good idea to create two cluster mailbox centers in Lake Placid one at the Health Department on North Main Street and the other on Interlake Bou levard. C ertainly, they were thinking of sav ing money, and that is a good thing. These ar e still tough economic times. Businesses small and large are taking a hard look at the bottom line and tak ing cost-saving measures. O ur disappointment in the post al service has nothing to do with the good intention of saving money. The issue, once again, is an example of a government agency having a good in tention then botching it because of a lack of pr eparation and simple arro gance. F or example, the post ofce nei ther announced its plan in advance, nor consulted with any of its effected customers. The placement of the mail distribution centers was decided ar bitrarily. Putting a mail cluster at the H ealth Department, already a busy building and parking lot, would have drawn dozens and dozens more cars and pedestrians. And the second location was even worse. It was installed in a small space that was never intended to handle heavy trafc. It was also put on private property without the owners permis sion. And whose br ight idea was it for the postal customers themselves to have to leave their businesses to collect their mail? Who said Let our custom ers collect their own mail and may nei ther snow nor rain nor gloom of night stay them fr om the swift completion of our appointed rounds.? Centralized mail is not going away. Postal ofcials said as much when they returned to door-to-door deliv ery temporarily, saying they will nego tiate with the town for more practical locations for the cluster bo xes. Once this grand experiment has played out in Lake Placid will it be expanded to more of the downtown business area? What about business es in Sebring or Avon Park? If the post ofce is ex cited about saving $31,800 by using two mailbox clusters in Lake Placid, its probably a safe bet that were going to be seeing more and more of this centralized mail delivery everywhere. We encourage an open dialogue between the post ofce and its cus tomers moving forward. All involved should appr oach the next attempt with an honesty that was lacking in this recent effort. We hope the postal decision mak ers remember this vital business axi om in the future: The customer is al ways right.

Main Ave., Lake Placid, Fla., 33852 Before we move onto the next crisis, lets get one thing straight about whats happening on the Texas border. This is not Barack Obamas Katrina moment. This is everyones Ka trina moment. I do not r elish criticiz ing Obama. I have defended him on Benghazi, the IRS, Snowden, and countless other con tretemps and kerufes. And hes right that if C ongress had passed im migration reform years ago we would not have 52,000 children from Central America in South Texas right now. But right now, Barack is blowing it by not going to visit those children. There is nothing that is taking place down there that I am not in timately aware of and br iefed on, said Obama. This isnt theater, this is a problem. Im not inter ested in photo-ops, Im inter ested in solving the problem. Hes right up to a point, but boy howdy is he wrong about this not be ing theater. The President is our leading man, and b y not going to the border to witness the sit uation rst-hand he is missing an oppor tuni ty to lead. Instead, he believes that intellectual abstr actions and politi cal inghting sufce to carr y the day. They dont. Ronald Reagan was intimately aware and briefed on the dangers of the Soviet Union, but what if he thought that giving a speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin was an unneces sary photo op? You have to go to the B erlin Wall to properly tell Gorbachev to tear it down. And for that mat ter, can you imagine B ill Clinton not going to visit those children? He would have hugged on those kids for hours and emerged glowing with sweaty happiness. He would have felt their pain, and we would have felt the love. Because Obama intel lectualizes this humanitarian crisis as a political conict, we jump into our par tisan trench es. Our heads fogged with conict, w e cant see the huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of a teeming shore. These children are homeless, tempest-tossed to us on our very doorstep. Par ents have sent their children to America to save their liv es. These are not political abstractions. If Obama is retreating into his cool, pragmat ic comfort zone to process this, conservatives ar e coming out hot. Many Republican politi cians are calling this an inv asion and spread ing groundless rumors that these childr en are carrying exotic, Cen tral American diseases. Heckuva rebranding y ouve got there, Repub licans. T o a man, Republican congressmen are blam ing this crisis on Obama, conv eniently forget ting that theyve taken 54 v otes to repeal Obam acare but not a single one to secur e the border. Theyre playing cheap and obvious politics, passing the buck instead of seizing the opportuni ty to solve the problem. M ost of the Obama cant lead criticism un fairly blames him for Republican obstruction as if blaming the par ent for a toddlers tantrum. But this is different. Obama is missing an op portunity to change the narr ative. By standing at the border, he could help America understand the that when youve got a broken immigration system, you end up with a r efugee crisis. Instead, the press seems content to cov er this like just another partisan slapght, br eathlessly reporting developments as if cov ering a middle school ght betw een frenemies. And worst of all, when a congressman blames Obama for the crisis, I havent seen a single re porter respond, Well, when ar e you going to vote on border security? Where is Anderson Coo per when you need him? W e all know our immi gration system is broken and our bor der needs to be secured, and we have 52,000 reasons to x it right now.

Several citizens still expressed misgivings about the pact, asking about the placement of military advisers on county boards that shape policy. Board attorney Ross Macbeth pointed out that there were nonvoting seats set aside for both a member of the school board and a member of the mili tary since 2005. Although the school board apparently has taken advantage of the offer the military has not as of yet. Another question raised by citizens at a previous county com mission session was answ ered when it was revealed that there are no plans to plan to ex pand the range nor change its mission. Air F orce Range Commander Lt. Col. Paul Neidhardt, who soon will be step ping down in August for what he r eferred to as terminal leave, addressed concerns about provisions for shielded lighting. He told commis sioners that so-called directed lighting al ready is part of the county s policy and that users would save money through the use of lower-wattage bulbs. He told com missioners that although many of the major Air F orce bas es including MacDill and Eglin have encr oachment prob lems, the Avon Park Air F orce Range is in a great place to keep it in its current state forever. Commissioners vot ed unanimously to go ahead and incorpo rate the MAZ designations into the countys compr ehensive plan. Commissioner Ron Handley was not in at tendance at Tuesdays session. MAZ FROM PAGE A A 1Highlands County Administrator Michael Wright. At the time, Polat ty had earned exceptional ratings for his per formance during the an nual review process. N ow it appears that Polatty may be looking for work again after Se bring city council members moved to eliminate his position as a costcutting measur e. That position will not be fund ed as of Oct 1, unless the council changes its mind, said Sebring City A dministrator Scott Noeth lich. I nstead, the council is looking to farm out the job to the Central Florida Regional Planning Council. That would mean a current annu al expenditure of $89,000 for salary and benets would dr op to a line item of about $20,000 a year. The CFRPC already does work for the City of Avon Park, the Town of Lake Placid and for Highlands County. Theres an economy of scale there and thats part of the reason they can offer their services rela tively inexpensively, Noethlich said. S ebring Councilman Scott Stan ley, the Planning & Zoning liaison, was the one that made the motion to cease funding the position at Thursday nights session. It passed by a unanimous vote. Noethlich said at this time, the CFRPC is one of a number of op tions. The council doesnt even hav e to hire them as consultants, he said. In fact, Noethlich indicated that the citys staff could pick up a lot of the work the way it has been done in the past. We still could hire the CFR PC on an as-needed basis to le compr ehensive plan amendments and that sort of thing, he said. It would not include services such as rewriting our codes. Currently, Sebring City Attorney Bob Swaine is the one who writes ordinances based on the recom mendations of the Planning & Z oning Board and the the desires of the city council. The council will decide what it is they want in the code, Noeth lich said. I n the past, the city had done without a planner, with staff taking care of matters in-house. We could get back to the way we used to do it, with the P&Z meeting once every two or three months when it was required, No ethlich said. P olatty was hired to the Sebring post in November of 2009. He was selected over 47 other applicants for the job. He currently is on vacation and could not be reached for com ment. VO tT E FROM PAGE A A 1report said. When Smith saw her daughter in volved, she jumped in the ght, the r eport said. As the altercation con tinued, several objects were thrown at S miths car, a 2010 Dodge Caliber. Smith then got in the car, started it up, and drove straight at the vic tim, who told deputies she had nowhere to go, so she jumped on the hood at the intersection of S outh Carolina Street and Ben Hicks Street. The victim said Smith drove the entire length of Ben Hicks Street from South Carolina Street, then crossed Memorial Drive and con tinued down to the boat ramp on Lake Lotela, wher e she slammed on brakes and threw the victim off the hood on the ground. The victim was taken to a hospi tal for her injuries, the report said. GIRL FROM PAGE A A 1 BY BARR YY FOSTER NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T AVON PARK The Peter Powell Roberts Museum of Art & Cul tural Center has gotten a shot in the arm fr om council mem bers in the City of Char m. The council Monday night voted to spend $35,000 on renova tions to the second oor of the city s com munity center to help the H eartland Cultural Alliance toward their goal of preparing the space for a multimil lion dollar museum. City A ttorney Gerald Buhr also will craft a proposed lease for the space. A booklet issued by the HCA has pro jected that in the rst y ear,the city could realize as much as $22,365 from sales tax, catering, wedding re ceptions as well as monies subcontr act ed for local construction costs. They said that could balloon to as much as $152,292 by the fourth year of operation. To add to the citys $35,000 investment, HCA representatives said they would raise an additional $144,000 for improvements to the area, which they hope to have open by Christmas of this year. Pat Malone of MIDCreative, a Norcross, Ga.-based rm which develops museums, made the presenta tion. He noted his or ganization also had committed a $116,000 grant for the effort. Weve partnered with the Heartland Cultural Alliance on a veto 10-year pro gram to make Highlands County a tour ist destination based upon the ar ts, he told the council. We will assist with market ing and fundraising as w ell. The Peter Pow ell Roberts Museum would be P hase I of a general cultural com mitment made by MDI to the county as a whole. Ultimately, Malone said, it would include such things as music, dance, ne arts, writing and per forming arts. I n addition to the MDI grant, Malone told council that Highlands County has committed $225,000 over the next two years in a statewide marketing campaign. Saying that the lease for the space would be dependent on the HCA being able to raise the funds nec essary for the project, the alliance now plans a fundr aising effort targeting all of Highlands County, the state, foundations, private corporations, federal grants and or ganizations that support museums and cultur al projects. Calling the munici pal expenditure kind of a token, Malone said the citys $35,000 would go to perma nent improvements to the buildings such as carpeting, ceiling tiles and lighting Weve got a de sign, we just need the space , he said. Under terms of the lease, no money will be spent until there is cash in hand. What I had envi sioned was that the HCA would submit draws based on work had been performed. The city would then reimburse that work, said Buhr. He will be preparing the lease agreement. Malone told the council that two bus companies already have been contracted to bring visitors to the facility. They have projected that as many as 50,000 tourists could come to the museum annually when it is up and run ning. This is going to be a nice museum, Malone said. The Peter Pow ell Roberts collection would be roughly a third of the pieces on display with local and regional artists to make up the rest of what will be a chang ing display. The $35,000 would come out of $50,000 allocated this year for renovations of the en tire community center. That brought questions fr om Coun cilwoman Brenda G iles. Will there be enough left over to renovate the down stairs? she asked. City M anager Julian De leon said that would cost an additional $35,000. Mayor Sha ron Schuler suggested the additional funds could come from the citys contingency budget in the upcom ing scal year.

The ar rests were made by the H ighlands County Sheriffs Ofce. Charged with scheme to defraud was Christina Dawn Wood of 916 Ama ranth Ave., Lake Placid. She was a waitress at J axsons Restaurant and Lounge. Dock 633 manager Benjamin Michael Rose of 1544 Camillia Court, Lake Placid, was charged with second-de gree grand theft and scheme to defr aud. Wood is accused of taking almost $1,300 from Jaxsons. Inves tigators said she entered bogus transactions resulting in her getting a r elatively large amount of cash, mostly from inated tips, at the end of the shift. She would use one of her own three debit cards to enter a transaction that might include a glass of beer for $1.45. The report said she would then add a tip ranging from $70 to $100. Confronted by investigators, Wood admitted she was aware of a computer glitch that delayed the transaction reaching the credit card com pany. The restaurants management did not learn of the phony sales for months, the report said. The HCSO investi gation discovered 27 suspicious tr ansac tions made by Wood dur ing a severalmonth period. Jaxsons discovered the loss after the sys tem eventually declined the debit cards because of insuf cient funds, the report said. By then, W ood had already re ceived the tips included in the charges to the debit car ds, the re port said. R ose is accused of stealing near ly $30,000 from Dock 633 in 13 months while he was a man ager at the Lake June R oad restaurant. A re port said Rose admitted stealing liquor, telling an inv estigator he should be making at least $20,000 more per year for the job he does, the report said. Rose denied steal ing money, other than occasionally tak ing $50 to $100, but r eturning it later, the report said. The report said in vestigators deter mined that after a ser ver would leave for the day, Rose would reopen tickets for meals and either void the transactions or discount them, cre ating the appearance of extr a money in the cash register, based on those altered tick ets.

Florida leads the nation in dr ownings for ages one to four. While these statistics are heart breaking, they are av oidable for the most part. Swimming lessons are incredibly im portant, especially in Highlands County where lakes, canals and pools ar e in almost every neighborhood. Classes are offered at the Lake Placid High School pool. Afford able and convenient, six w eek sessions are available at a cost of $25 per session. All instructors are CPR, lifeguard, rst aid and Water Safety In structor certied, said pool super visor Kari Lambert. They have to renew their certica tions every two years. Classes ar e offered on multiple experience levels, from mom and tot to 13-year-olds and even adults who wish to learn or to improve their skills. Class es meet at 9, 10 and 11 / a.m. and 5:10 / p.m. Monday through Fri day. We teach the lit tle ones to get to the edge , said Lambert. Its important for them to learn not to panic. Public swim ses sions are lifeguard supervised and run from 1 to 4 / p.m. Monday through Saturday and 6 to 8 / p.m. Monday through Friday, weath er permitting. Admission is $2.50. M ike Ritacco used to be a lifeguard and has opted to take three of his children to swim ming lessons at LPHS. The kids knew how to swim fairly well, Rit acco said. They are honing their skills Sometimes they learn better form someone else. I know the impor tance of water safety. H ighlands County has an abundance of both man-made and natural bodies of wa ter. While this is ideal for recreation, dangers can be present. Always be awar e of your surroundings and use safety precautions to prevent your child from becoming a sta tistic, experts advise. D rownings can hap pen quickly and silently within a minute. Young children can dr own in as little as two inches of water. Toilets, bathtubs and buckets are all plac es where the threat of dr owning may not be obvious. Childproof locks are sold for toi lets; buckets and bathtubs should be completely drained after use According to Flor diahealth.gov, most dr ownings occur in pools, spas, and bath tubs. In response to this Florida has im plemented a program entitled Water proofFLPool Safety is E veryones Respon sibility. The program focuses on pr evention and having an emer gency plan in place. The contr ibuting fac tors to unintentional dr ownings include lack of supervision, swim ming abilities and bar riers, alcohol use and seizur es. Supervision is the rst layer of pro tection, this means active supervision; not talking on the phone or reading a book. A four-sided fence barrier that sepa rates a house from its pool is r ecommended. Alarms that emit a high pitch when doors are opened can alert par ents to little ones heading toward danger. Alar ms are also avail able to go off when the sur face of a pool is dis turbed. C overs on spas and pools when not in use reduce risk of injuries or drownings. Ladders should be taken away from above ground pools to prevent temp tation. Safety drains should be installed in pools and hot tubs and is mandated by law in public pools. Cardiopulmonary re suscitation is a lifesaving form of rst aid if a child stops br eathing. CPR should be admin istered until emergency medical help arrives on scene Lake Plac id Police Department offers CPR classes as does the Red Cross.Swimming lessons offered at Lake Placid High School pool Kim Leatherman/News-Journal Five-year-old Payton Behrman jumps to swim instructor Annie Weber-Callahan.

A dinner reception in Grifns honor was held Saturday fr om 5 to 8 / p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Lake Placid. About 60 of her friends and a few for mer students attended the reception. P astor A. J. Walker of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church gave an invocation to open a time of celebration and testimonials led by Stacey Leveridge. Grifn is very ac tive member of her chur ch. In his testi monial, Pastor Walker remarked that it was okay for her to retire from public school teaching, but would she please not retire from teaching Sunday school at the church. The comment brought a good laugh. Several testimo nials were offered b y friends and for mer students including Evon Taylor, Dee B lackstar, and Nate Williams of Avon Park. Tracy Blackstar sang a solo in honor of Grif n. The guest of hon or recognized those pr esent with love gifts including the person who came the farthest (Miami) and a par ent and child both of whom G rifn taught. It was evident from the testimonials that Grifn was more than just a teacher to her students, she was a friend even after they were no longer her students and had grown up. Grifn spent two years teaching at Madison High School in Madison, Flori da before coming to Lake P lacid. She has spent the last 33 years teaching Social Stud ies, American History, and Geography in gr ades 5, 7, and 8 at Lake Placid Middle School. Somehow, Grifn says, she was never tasked with teaching sixth grade in all those years.Griffin retires after 35 years of teaching Brian Hurley/News-Journal Vivian Grin speaks with friends she shared a table with at her retirement party.

Such was the case for the junior Blue Streaks at the Dixie AAA State Tournament in Arcadia this past weekend, with delays pushing things back. But the young Se bring squad stuck it out and did a little pushing of their own when they did get the chance to take the eld. Their opening game Saturday night was washed away by the rains, so they opened their tournament slate up early Sunday and wasted little time in making a statement with a 14-4 trouncing of Marianna. A nine-run rst pretty much ended that one just as it began, with Ja cob Jackson highlighting the outburst with a bases clear ing base hit. The big inning was added to in the second on a Fabion Ayala tworun home run. After the win to get their tournament start ed off on the right tr ack, more rains swept through the area and held their next contest off for three hours. But soon enough theyd have their crack at that age-old Sebring Dixie nemesis, West Volusia. They would fall be hind early, with West V olusia scoring once in the second.Streaks staying alive in Arcadia John Black/ArcadianSebring left-hander Aiden Rowe competes and wins the fastest pitch contest Friday during the opening ceremonies of the Dixie AAA State Tournament in Arcadia.

His previous high school experience in cludes a stint as coach at W ellington Christian School in West Palm Beach as well as time in both the Palm Beach and Broward County School Districts. LP FROM PAGE A A 10 Summer Devils settle for second JAMES TAYLOR NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T LAKELAND The same defense that un characteristically faltered in the rst game for the A von Park Red Devil Summer Baseball team came through in the second game on Saturday at a travel ball tournament in Lakeland. Errors plagued the Red Devil team in game 1 as they lost to the Dawg Pound (18 and under AAA) 5-2, all ve runs were un earned. I n the second game, after falling behind 3-0, the defense came up clutch as Avon Park rallied for the 4-3 win. The games on Sat urday set the seeding for S unday in a singleelimination, last-teamstanding tournament. It was a rough rst game, said Avon Park head coach Whit Cor nell. But playing in this tr avel schedule, its new to me and new to the players, but you have to have pitching for the next day. We had a cou ple of guys that did not hav e a whole lot of experience pitch ing at this level, they pitched pr etty good, but we made a couple a critical errors behind them. Tyler Young, a young left hander, took the mound for the Red Devils in the second game against Dia mond Force (18 and under AA tr avel team). After a promising start with a 1-2-3 in ning in the rst, he would not sur vive the second as he gave up a leadoff single, then three straight walks to not only load the bas es, but force in a run as A von Park found them selves trailing 1-0. C ornell made the pitching change with bases loaded and no outs, bringing in Luis Martinez. Martinez was able to induce a ground ball to third base to the sure handed Luis Cerve ra, who easily stepped on thir d and threw to rst for the sure dou ble play. D iamond Force scored on the play to increase their lead to 2-0. They would score once more on a single into right eld as the Red Devils trailed af ter two innings, 3-0, wher e it stayed until the top of the fth. Again, the bottom of the lineup provided the spark for the Red Devils as Gomez and Council both singled with two out. Jacques Gordon fol lowed with a single into center to dr ive in Gomez, cutting Dia mond Forces lead to 3-1. M artinez followed that with a single into right to drive in Coun cil and bring the Red D evils to within one of Diamond Force at 3-2. Alex Gomez walked to load the bases to bring up Daniel Si mons. S imons hit a rou tine ground ball to the shor tstop that was misplayed and allowed both runs to score and giving Avon Park their rst lead at 4-3. Cornell then switched pitchers, bringing in Simons, who shut down Dia mond Force with three str aight outs. In the bottom of the sixth, Cornell brought in Trey Frazier, who danced a ne line with disaster as two walks and a single loaded the bases with no outs. He then gave up a line drive heading to wards right eld. C ouncil, playing sec ond base, snatched the ball in mid-ight and promptly threw to rst to pick off the runner for the double play. Frazier got out of the inning as the next bat ter grounded back to him and he made the throw to rst. The seventh inning saw Cervera take to the mound and retire the side in order for the win. On Sunday, Avon Park won their rst two games to reach the championship game. Behind the strong pitching of Simons, Avon Park beat the Pi rates in Game 1, 8-0. T rey Frazier pitched the second game against the Marion County Hammers. Frazier pitched into the seventh inning for the 6-4 win. Anthony Torres came in to get the nal two outs for the save. The Red Devils lost in the champion ship game against the D awg Pound, 11-2. We played well, said Cornell. Our pitching is coming along, we are hitting and elding the ball. We are coming togeth er as a strong group, they ar e a fun group of kids and they are fun to watch. Avon Parks next scheduled tournament is in August, with dates to be announced as soon as possible.

Initially, the shedding of veterans Jameer Nel son and Arron Afalo seemed to be an abr upt shift away from that plan and toward youth. But with the addi tion of Ben Gordon last w eek and ofcial sign ing of free agent veter an shooter Channing F rye on Monday, Hen nigan said he is happy with ho w the summer is playing out. I think it would be a problem if we said we didnt like it, Hennigan said of the Magics cur rent roster. Were excited with where were at. Weve still got a lot of work to do were fully aware of that but we do think were heading in the right di rection. I n the 6-foot-11 Frye, that direction instantly gains an eight-year vet eran and proven longdistance shooter with the ability to spread out defenses a cov eted commodity in the NBA. H e sat out the 201213 season after being diagnosed with an en larged heart, and went thr ough an intense eight-month stretch that included him wearing a heart moni tor and having closely monitored activity in which he was only able to do minimal exercise. But he eventually worked his way back to the court, and played all 82 games for the rst time in his career last season. When somethings taken away from you, you just take step back, and you really appre ciate it, Frye said. Its not so much a job This is a blessing and op portunity. When or lose Im always going to have a smile on my face, because any mo ment this can be taken away . Frye, who spent the last four seasons in Phoenix, said he had interest from about 14 teams this summer. In the end, getting a longer term deal and wanting to be a part of the Magics rebuilding process trumped sign ing a oneor two-year contr act with a con tender. F ryes deal is for four years and will play the 31-year-old about $32 million. I think the Mag ic pretty much made themselv es at the top of my list early on, he said. They were the rst people to call, and that means a lot. Hell also to play alongside and mentor his cousin, Magic for ward Tobias Harris. I t will allow Frye to step into the shoes of Grant Hill, whom he credits with being one of his biggest mentors. I think in Phoenix we never get any re spect, Frye said. I don t listen to anybody about what were go ing to be next year or what our r ecord might be. Because most of the time they dont know what theyre talking about. Its a challenge and Im ready to step up. Along with Fryes signing Monday, the Magic also announced a minor deal with Chi cago in which they acquired the contract of for ward Anthony Ran dolph, two future second-round draft picks (in 2015 and 2016) and cash considerations in exchange for the draft rights to Milovan Ra kovic. The r ights to Rakov ic, who has played his entir e career overseas, were originally ac quired from Dallas in 2007. Orlando intends to waive Randolph. The Magic are still safely under the salary cap, but Hennigan said there may be a few mi nor pieces yet to add befor e training camp. We always may have something up our sleeve. But I would think this probably serves as the bulk of what well be doing this summer, he said. But I think we probably have a few other things to get done.Magic add shooter with signing of veteran FryeMIAMI The Miami Heat signed free-agent forwards Josh McRob erts and Danny Granger on Monday, and br ought back incum bent point guard Mario Chalmers. All thr ee deals were agreed to previous ly, but not signed until the Heat had more pieces of their sala ry-cap puzzle put into place McRoberts signed a four-year deal that will pay him $5.3 million next season. Chalmers got a twoyear deal that will have him earning about $4 million next season. Granger also has a two-year deal and will make just over $1 mil lion next season. M cRoberts aver aged 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists for Charlotte last sea son. H eat President Pat Riley said McRoberts was one of Miamis main targets in free agency. We are delighted that this multi-faceted player will help us im mensely, Riley said. Chalmers has been with Miami for all six of his pro seasons, helping win two cham pionships. H e averaged 9.8 points and 4.9 assists last season and shot 38 percent from 3-point range. Its great to have Mario back, Riley said. Were happy that he wants to contin ue his career in Miami, he s one of our core players, and I believe he will have a great season.Heat close deals with McRoberts, Chalmers, Granger

CAUFFIELD&SONS,INC. rfrrrn 3058972 Florida Trail Association, Heartland July Activities DOUG FERGUSON AP GOLF WRITER HOYLAKE, England U.S. captain Tom Watson had been look ing forward to seeing Tiger Woods at the B ritish Open to tell him my feelings about him direct about the Ryder Cup. On second thought, theres not much to say. Not a whole lot, probably, Watson said Monday. Again, its performance. I could ask Tiger, How are you feeling? How are you feeling like youre hit ting the ball? Are you hitting it w ell? And that doesnt mean any thing, really. The per formance means something. I ll be watching Tiger and I want him on the team I do. Hes a tough competitor and hes great in the team room. Wouldnt you want him on your team? Woods has three tournaments to give Watson an indication of his game. The 14-time major champion was out for three months because of back surgery, and he wasnt playing well in the months leading to the March 31 operation as his back pain be came more evident. W oods is No. 72 in the Ryder Cup stand ings with only ve w eeks remaining to earn one of nine spots. He is a long shot to make the team, though a victory at Royal Liv erpool or the PGA Championship would do the trick. Watson repeated the two factors that matter to him the game and the health of Woods. And he was care ful not to speculate what would happen if Woods failed to get into the FedEx Cup playoffs for the top 125. Woods is at No. 212 with three tourna ments remaining. If hes playing well and hes healthy, Ill pick him, Watson said. But then the caveat is if he doesnt get into the FedEx Cup. What to do then? And thats the question I cant answer right now. Woods has the Bridgestone Invita tional at Firestone ($9 million purse) and the PGA Championship ($10 million purse, with points doubled) before the Ryder Cup qualifying period ends. Watson will make his three picks after the second FedEx Cup event. I cant speculate how hes going to be playing through the PGA, Watson said. I hope that hes playing well enough where he gets in the FedEx Cup and plays a few tour naments in the FedEx C up. Thats my sincere hope, that he plays well. And I suspect hell be there. Woods won at Royal Liverpool in 2006. He returns to a course that is green and lush, a sharp dif ference from last time when it was br own and fast. He has said his inten tion is to win this week, having r eturned three weeks ago at Congres sional with plenty of r ust in his short game.

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com It seems to happen every year about this time. As certain as the arrival of summers heat comes the arrival of con artists looking for take money from unsuspecting homeowners. Air conditioning and duct work cleaning companies send crews here from other areas and offer seemingly low prices to inspect homes and air conditioning equipment. Almost invariably, the nal price is far higher than the deal originally offered. Highlands County Sheriffs Ofce Public Information Ofcer Nell Hays says the scammers are back. They look legitimate. The offer sounds to good to be true and thats because it usually is. An out-of-area company places advertisements in local coupon magazines offering duct cleaning service for $49.95 or another low price. Once at the victims home, the workers nd what they say is mold and the advertised price is no longer valid. The workers then charge a signicant amount more than the adver tised price and also ask that the check be made payable to them instead of the company. This is not how honest businesses treat customers. Lake Placid and Highlands County have lots of licensed, reputable companies that service air conditioning units and clean duct work. They built their businesses by providing honest work at fair prices. Reputations are crucial to businesses especially in smaller communities and area companies would not be likely to inate prices for the sake of a few dollars. Highlands County residents who have done business with any unscrupulous company within the past year and have been charged more than the advertised rate due to the presence of mold, are encouraged to call the sheriffs ofce and make a report. Call Central Dispatch at 863402-7200 and a deputy will be sent to your home to get the details. Hays said anyone with information on incidents of this type and who wants to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477) or visit the website www. heartlandcrimestoppers. com. Anonymity is guaranteed. Its not just duct cleaning services that prey on homeowners. It was only recently that I learned of an elderly woman who was contacted by telephone by a rm offering a free inspection of her central air conditioning system. After a visual inspection of the air conditioner, the woman was told she needed to replace sever al expensive elements. Without the repairs, she was told, her air conditioner would certainly be damaged and her home was at risk of re. She didnt fall for the scare tactic and instead called a local company. Within hours she learned there was absolutely nothing wrong with her air conditioning system. Be cautious. Be wise. Deal with area professionals who have built their business on solid reputations.Dont let con men ruin your summer cool Mat DelaneyFROM THE PORCH The Sebring Chamber of Commerce MixerWhen: Thursday, July 17th 5 to 7pmWhere: The News-Sun 2227 US Hwy. 27 S.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, July 16, 2014 www.newssun.com I m sure most of us have that favor ite recipe or place for a cheesesteak sandwich. I know I will never forget going to Primanti Bros. in Pittsburgh and getting their signature cheesesteak and having the steak fries stuffed into the sandwich when it was served to me. It was awesome and I always think of that place when someone mentions Pittsburgh. Well, I have a recipe for you that I think will be a great twist on the classic cheesesteak sandwich. You probably already have what you need to make it in your kitchens right now. It has all the usual suspects in it with some added hot sauce to kick in the avors and make you want another bite. I know I did when I tasted it. In this recipe, I would use ank steak if making it from scratch, but if you have some leftover steak from the night before in your fridge, I would use that instead of cooking more beef. At work and at home, I always look for ways to use up leftovers so they dont go to waste. Thats how professional kitchens stay in business. For the hot sauce, I like to use a buffalo sauce, however if that isnt hot enough for you then I would add some cayenne or maybe a little ghost pepper if you have it. The recipe also calls for Provolone cheese, but if you already have some Swiss or white American at home, that would be a good substitute. I hope you ask some friends over and make a big platter of these sandwiches and share them. Cheers, Chef.Buffalo cheesesteak sandwich 1 lb, sliced fresh yellow onions 2-38 tsp. margarine 5 demi-baguette rolls 58 cup Buffalo sauce 5 4-ounce portions of raw Philly steak 10 slices Provolone cheesePreparation Method1. Spread margarine on hot grill. Add onions and grill for 5 to 6 minutes turning once or twice until onions have become soft and slightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. 2. To order; brush top and bottom of a bun with 1 tsp margarine and place on grill. 3. Place 1 tsp. margarine on grill and grill a 4-ounce portion of steak for three minutes. Turn meat and cover with 3 ounces of grilled onions. Cover onions with 1 ounce of Buffalo sauce and top with two slices of provolone cheese. Place on grilled bun.

You are responsible for adjusting your driving speed to the road conditions. For example, if the weather is bad or there is a lot of traffic, you must drive more slowly than the posted speed. The safe speed is the one that allows you to have complete control of your vehicle.

Speed limits are 70 MPH on some rural interstate highways. Speed limits may be changed on other multi-lane highways.

Observe and obey the posted speed signs as there may be frequent changes from area to area along the selected roads and highways.SPEEDLIMITS The Lake Placid Lions Club installed ofcers for 2014-2015 at a recent meeting at Beef OBradys restaurant.

My daughter just turned 13, and I need to discuss the facts of life with her. I dont know where to start. My mom told me absolutely NOTHING, and I know my daughter needs to be educated in a simple but very understandable way especially in these times. Do you still have your booklet that gives teens answers to questions on sex? I need ideas on how to approach this. NERVOUS MOM IN ILLINOIS DEAR NERVOUS MOM: Because many parents nd the subject of sex embarrassing, they postpone discussing it with their children. When the talk nally happens, it is often too late. Their childs head is lled with information received from contemporaries, and often what theyve heard is inaccurate. Today, children are maturing years earlier than they did a generation ago. Its not unusual to hear about teens engaging in adult activities at much younger ages than teens of earlier generations. That is why its so important for parents (and guardians) to begin discussions about alcohol, drugs and family values well before their children start experimenting. My booklet, What Every Teen Should Know, was written to help parents break the ice and get the conversation going. It can be ordered by sending your name and address plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to Dear Abby Teen Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. You should review it before starting the discussion so you can prepare beforehand to answer questions or guide the conversation. My booklet provides answers to frequently asked questions, such as: How old must a girl be before she can get pregnant? Can she get pregnant the rst time she has sex? What time of the month is a girl 100 percent safe? How old must a boy be before he can father a child? Another important topic is how to avoid date rape and what to do if it happens. Included is information on contraception and sexually transmitted diseases (and how to recognize them). My booklet has been distributed in doctors ofces and used to promote discussion by educators and religious leaders, as well as parents like you who nd it difcult to discuss these topics with their children. DEAR ABBY: I recently started a summer job in the tting room of a clothing store. Customers often ask me what I think about their outts, and the most common question is, Does this make me look fat? How do I answer if the outt DOES make the woman look fat? These women want honesty, but how do I avoid sounding rude? CONFLICTED IN NEW JERSEY DEAR CONFLICTED: Try this: The color is great on you. Lets get it in another size and itll be perfect. Sometimes garments have been mismarked. (Its true.)Booklet helps nervous parents talk to their kids about sex DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. LOS ANGELES Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay best friend. The famous frecklefaced comic book icon is meeting his demise in Wednesdays installment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics rst openly gay character. Andrews death, which was rst announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals. The way in which Archie dies is every thing that you would expect of Archie, said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO. He dies heroically. He dies selessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. Its what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years. Kellers character rst joined Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Reggie Mantle in the Archie Comics spin-off Veronica in 2010. He later appeared in his own solo title. In Life with Archie, Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator whos pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting. We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to every one, said Goldwater. Thats how we came up with the storyline of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born. Andrew Wheeler, who writes about the comic book industry at ComicsAlliance. com, praised the way that Andrews will be killed off. He wrote on Monday that Archies sacrice isnt just a moment of heroism; it offers an unambiguous condemnation of Americas lax gun laws and said that its not surprising to see Archie Comics tackling such a serious issue because the publisher doesnt shy away from risky ideas. Who shot Archie? Goldwater isnt spoiling the killer, only teasing its a stalker who wanted to take Keller down. Andrews nal moments will be detailed in Life with Archie No. 36, while issue No. 37 will jump for ward a year and focus on the Riverdale gang honoring the legacy of their red-headed pal, who rst appeared in comics in 1941 and went on to become a colorful icon of wholesomeness. Other incar nations of Andrews will continue to live on in Archie Comics series. In recent years, deaths of high-prole comic book characters like Peter SpiderMan Parker and Steve Captain America Rogers have made headlines and gar nered intense reaction from fans. Goldwater notes that Andrews passing isnt just a publicity stunt but also a lesson about gun violence and a declaration of diversity in the new age of Archie Comics. Archie is not a super hero like all the rest of the comic book char acters, said Goldwater. Hes human. Hes a person. When you wound him, he bleeds. He knows that. If anything, I think his death is more impactful because of that. We hope by showing how something so violent can happen to Archie, that we can in some way learn from him. Life with Archie was launched in 2010 after Archie Comics writers envisioned alternate futures where Archie married both Veronica and Betty. Over the past four years, storylines in the more socially relevant series aimed at longtime Archie fans have included Kellers marriage, the death of teacher Ms. Grundy and sometimes Archie love interest Cheryl Blossom tackling breast cancer and affordable health care. Archie Comics has also more broadly strived to appeal to modern sensibilities by launching a spin-off series called Afterlife with Archie that envisions a zombie outbreak coming to Riverdale and enlisting Girls creator and star Lena Dunham to write a four-part Archie story set for release next year that chronicles the production of a reality TV show in Riverdale. This makes a great deal of sense given how topical Life with Archie has become since it abandoned the weird wondrous par allel universe storyline of its early issues, wrote Chris Cummins of DenOfGeek.us. He added: Not to be too grandiose, but this demise is a tting and tonally perfect tribute to a character who has always put his friends rst. This is a publicity stunt for sure, but one with heart that will have permanent ramications.Archie to be shot saving gay friend in comic book By DERRIK J. LANGAP ENTERTAINMENT WRITER

She was from Randal, Vt., was a school teacher and she trained and showed dogs. She moved to Sebring 10 years ago.Celebrating a century FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS Placid Lakes Party LineBY SUSIE LEELAKE PLACID This is just a thought, folks, but while the search is on for recreational areas, the Placid Lakes Home Owners Association owns a piece of property known as Tract J, which is not saleable as it is Scrub Jay Habitat. However, that is not to say it couldnt be a park or conservation area instead of a dumping ground. With the expert information available at Archbold Biological Station, it would seem a prudent undertaking for the PLHOA to look into for recreational purposes. Just a thought, the Canal Boys are doing a great job, all volunteers. We now see boats going up and down the canals with the greatest of ease. This was not always the case. The Boys stepped up to the plate, and within two years, have made some serious changes navigating those canals. This can also be done with conser vation efforts for Tract J. Anyone listening? The caladiums are getting in high gear. Some of them are as high as cornstalks, and the leaves a foot in diameter. But the ones around the trees, especially along North and South Main Streets in town, are just awesome. Our town hall in Placid Lakes is looking really good, and entrances to Placid Lakes on Catfish and Washington are doing wonderful. With the office closed for the month of July, the action is on the sleepy side at town hall. The Dalton Gang woke things up on the Fourth, and Pete and his Bridge Club keep going on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Line dancing on Wednesdays and Fridays. As far as we know, the Crochet Club is still going on. The PLSC and LPBD will be going on their Paddlewheel cruise Aug. 9. The big night is the 19th of July, when the Lake Placid Ballroom Dancers usher in the Caladium Festival (July 25-27) with a dinner/dance at the Elks Lodge in Lake Placid starting at 5 p.m. Youll see plenty of caladiums, as Happiness Farms and Bates Sons & Daughters have agreed to show off some of their best. All the guests will receive caladium bulbs, and the tables and stage will be festooned with caladium centerpieces and plants. The dinner will include chicken cordon bleu, mashed potato, broccoli or string beans, salad, dessert, iced tea and coffee. Tickets are $10 for Lake Placid Ballroom Dancer members, $15 for non-members. The king-birds have had their families, and the babies are about ready to be booted out, and we wont see them again until next year. Meanwhile, the blue-jays and cardinals are in complete charge of the feeders, or so they think, the little guys are due in.Tropical Harbor EstatesBY ARLENE CLOUSTONLAKE PLACID We celebrated the 4th of July and it did not rain on our parade at 11 a.m. nor did it rain on our Fried Chicken Picnic. Marilyn Cromer rallied the troops at 6 p.m. and then said Grace. We all lined up for a great picnic. The food is always so good. Thanks go to everyone who lent their tents as well as the people that set up the tents; for the decorations that added to the atmosphere and the ladies who planned the picnic; and lets not forget the people who cleaned up. A big thanks! Monday morning coffee on the carport of the yellow house at 35 Belle Tower Ave. was well attended. Peggy Sue Teague welcomed everyone and called upon Marysue Willeke for the Sunshine report. Surgery is needed for Brenda Graham, Annie Fox and Don Emond. We were sorry that Betty Post has passed away. She was always a welcome addition to our musical programs because of her ability to sing and dance. Betty was 86 and she and Jack were married 68 years. Even though were at a big disadvantage while our clubhouse is torn apart,some activities do continue. Ladies coffee will be at a home each Tuesday morning at 9:30. On the 22nd it will be at Joan Rau, 341 Belle Grove St. Judy Muise holds art classes at her home at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. every Thursday. Call Judy at 863-260-0069 for information if you are interested. Brenda Knoche holds Nu Hope sewing in her home every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. Call Brenda at 699-1362 if you can volunteer. The Red Hatters meet once a month and they will meet at Dock 633 Restaurant on Lake June Road for their July get together on the 17th. Pool exercises continue every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m. with Dee Ziegler, Ingrid Taft and Marysue Willeke leading the classes. Pool parties continue on Thursdays at 4:30. Bring your snacks and drinks in plastic containers so you can eat and visit at the round tables at the pool. The Mustangs will continue meeting at the Placid Lakes Country Club for their monthly luncheon. Jean Chittenden had the Tuesday Ladies group at her home on July 8. She is moving to the Royal Palms in Port Charlotte. We all wish her happiness in her move. We discussed time and place for our next activity, Walking Tacos. It will be held on Thursday, July 24, at 5 p.m. for $5. The Caladium Festival is the weekend of July 25-27 in Lake Placid. It will be a weekend of lot of entertainment and fun. Kendall and Donna Kilbride went on an extended trip recently across the USA in their RV. Along the way they stopped to visit grandchildren in South Carolina and Illinois and Friends in Tennessee. Kendall got to see an old Army buddy in Cincinnati that he hadnt seen since 1963 and Donna was able to get reacquainted with an old grammar school friend in Alabama. They visited an Amish community in Indiana and a Swiss Village and House on the Rock in Wisconsin, then on to the Mall of America in Minneapolis. From there they headed father west through picturesque Idaho and to Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, and the Crazy Horse Monument, Wall Drugs, the Corn Palace and so many more awesome places. The most northern point of the trip was Seattle, where they then got on a ferry to the beautiful city of Victoria on Vancouver Island, Canada. On the way home, they went through Oregon and along the Columbia River Basin, through mountains with stunning rocks and streams, through valleys with their beautiful trees and blooms, and across the plains with the roaming animals and fields of grain. All in all, they went through 23 states (some more than once) and drove 7,500 miles. They are now back home in Tropical Harbor, the sunny south, contemplating their next trip somewhere in this gorgeous country of ours. Everyone you will ever meet knows something you dont.
