He had to force the man out of his car and away from him with a machete he kept for protection, but in the process, the rider took and lost the mans ignition key. Sebring police then arrested Samuel Toby Collins Jr., 40, of 4103 Santa Barbara Drive in Sebring on charges of burglary with assault or battery and damage to property, of less than $200. He was taken to Highlands County Jail Monday Man uses machete to fend off attacker Phil Attinger/News-SunSebring police take Samuel Toby Collins Jr. into custody after a ght Monday near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Lemon Street in Sebring. According to arrest reports, 40-year-old Collins of Sebring had been given rides around town by Ryan Rawlings, 29, of Lake Placid, but when they arrived in the Sebring neighborhood and stopped in a dirt lot, Collins began hitting Rawlings, reports said. Rawlings forced Collins out of the car with a machete that he keeps for protection, but Collins took Rawlings keys. Reports said Rawlings got the keys back, but the ignition key was missing. As police attempted to arrest Collins, he complained of chest pains, and was transported by Highlands County Emergency Medical Services.Man says he was attacked after giving susect several rides BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Highlands County commissioners Tuesday morning voted to send a letter to the USDAs National Resources Conservation Service saying they would consider entering into a partnership for rehabilitating the Fisheating Creek Marsh Watershed Project. Moreover, the plan would involve the county assuming responsibility for operation and maintenance of the project. What were doing is expressing an interest not taking on an obligation, Commissioner Jack Richie said. The project was initially created in 1957 in cooperation with the USDAs Soil Conservation Service. It was designed to provide a solution to ood water damage on pasture land as well as drainage of wetlands on the upper 20 miles of the creek. It starts at the headwaters of Fisheating Creek, said Highlands County Lakes Manager Clell Ford. It was channelized rather extensively in order to provide so landowners could farm in the area. However, Ford indicated that 55 years after the initial construction the primary structure is in a poor state of repair. Additionally, the report stated that channels in the project are in need of maintenance.Fisheating Creek back on county radar BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Get your island shirts and sandals ready for the annual Escape to Kokomo fundraiser Friday from 6-11 p.m. at Island View Restaurant in Sun N Lake for its 16th year.

His parents are getting a divorce, his mother relocated with him fr om M anhattan, New York, to Indiana, and his bar mitzvah is coming quickly. Fitting in to his new life new school and new role as an adult is a challenge that is explored at Highlands Little Theatre May 9-11 with the teen musical I watched the Broadway version of over and over again, said Jonathon Acosta, who plays E v an. It is an honor to play the lead role. Acosta started his career at HLT as a monkey in the Jungle B ook. In addition to being in the theater, Acosta leads a very active life for a 14-year-old high school freshman. He is active in FFA, soc cer and swimming and in his fr ee time r eferees at the YMCA. He said he is also active at the Avon Park Lakes Bap tist Church. The whole cast is pretty close, said Acosta. My sister got me interested in the theater and said that I would make a lot of new friends. Acostas character has a friend in the play named Patrice, who is played by Nala Price. They are also friends in real life. This is a lot of fun, said Price. Many of my friends still go to mid dle school and it is nice spending time with them. The difference between this production and Yearbook, which she starr ed in last summer, is that Yearbook had younger cast members. This pr oduction s cast ranges in age from 11 to 17. The high notes in the score were chal lenging, said Price, but after pr acticing, I got them. Price won Heartland Idol in 2010 and 2013 and has a Zenon (Highlands Little Theatres award) for The M agic Garden, which is also her favor ite play. P r ice, whose delivery of Jason Robert Browns music and lyrics in is spot on, is the youngest female to win the Zenon. Mark Reyes, who plays Archie, has been nominated for a Ze non for his role as y oung P atrick in Auntie Mame. Reyes, 12, is in the sev enth gr ade at Sebring Middle School. Archie is a blackmailer, he stalks people. I think hes cool, said R ey es. There is something I like about him. Reyes prepared for his role a little differently than the other actors. I took advice from people about what to do and r an with it. The play runs from May 9-11 at the Lakefront Playhouse in Sebring.

Some have criticized golf cart enforcement as being heavy-handed. M eanwhile the family of 23-year-old Brandon Bennett has stayed busy o v er the past dozen days looking for a solution at the county level. P eggy B ennett, his stepmother, said she met with county ofcials on Monday and hopes to meet with or hear back fr om county ofcials today about a way to allo w B randon to ride his offr oad modied electr ic golf cart on roads in Avon Park Lakes so he can reach the banks of Lake Olivia to go shing. B r andon Bennett has Kniest dysplasia, a genetic bone disorder that limits his mo v ement through swollen joints and arthritis. It also damages his sight and hear ing, so he cant get a drivers license. H e had been r iding to the lake in his golf cart for 18 months. But since none of the roads in Avon Park Lakes are designated as safe for golf carts, a Highlands County sheriffs deputy told him on April 26 to park his cart. Peggy Bennett said she had heard from Highlands County Community Programs Manager Christo pher Benson and Melissa Bruns, the countys Americans with D isabilities A ct compliance coordinator, that they ar e looking at what steps she might take to get an exemption, or get roads there designated for golf car ts. They conferred with County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete, who said it inv olv es a petition, engineering and tr afc studies including r eview by the sher iff s ofce and a recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners. The petition helps make sure most of the people want it: Be tween 60 percent and 75 per cent. N o community is 100 percent for golf car ts Gavarrete said. Even those that hav e been designated as golf car t communities still have complaints. C ollector r oads usually have too much tr afc to get appr oved, he said, but if a road has low speed, low trafc volume, few or no heavy tr ucks and a well-maintained road with good view, his report may say OK. If not, he would r ecommend denial. I t s up to the County Commission after that. Also, in response to an inquiry by Bruns, Gavarrete said the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has issued guidance stating that agencies do not hav e to provide pedestrian facilities. However, when a public agency does make a sidewalk or multi-use path, efforts must be made, within reason, to make it accessible to persons with disabili ties. T o date Gavarrete said, only ve Highlands County communities have golf cart designation: H ighlands H ammock Subdivision I stokpoga S hores & Ranch Subdivision Kissimmee River Estates Knoll-Century Hill Subdivision Sudan Interior Mission Gavarrete said a pe tition is in the works no w fr om residents of Lake Josephine Drive. The County Commission asked Istokpoga Shores to pay the county to install the golf car t warning signs, so he expects any new approvals will have to pay for signs, too. One place not on the list of approved com munities is Fairmont Estates but one r esident there said that doesn t stop her neighbors from using the car ts both in the par k and either on or along surrounding feeder roads. Pamela Mitchell, who said shes moving back to Indiana in J une after 20 y ears in Sebring, said she has complained about golf carts being driven in the park, along Schumacher Road, over in the W almar t parking lot and as far away from the park as Bob Evans Restaurant, all in heavy trafc areas along a major highway. Over the years, how ever, she lost faith in law enfor cement and stopped calling because nothing would change Then on Sunday, she became infuriated upon hearing of B ennett s case. That story broke my heart, Mitchell said. They will enforce that and not enforce this, and that makes me an gry. S ev eral other readers wrote on Facebook in suppor t of B ennett, saying riding in the bike lane on U.S. 27 is more dangerous and asking whether or not Bennett could use a mobility chair. Unfortunately, Peg gy Bennett said, a mobility chair wouldnt help N ot only is it less visible on Avon Park Lake roads, it wont traverse the sandy ground ar ound the lake and her step-son would be stuck.Family seeks golf cart solutionsCounty engineer explains process GoogleEarth.comA GoogleEarth map shows the part of Avon Park Lakes that 23-yearold Brandon Bennett would usually travel to go shing from his house on Seville Drive (bottom) to Lake Olivia (top) to go shing. He has Kniest dysplasia and cant walk that distance, so he has used a golf cart for 18 months. However, none of the roads in Avon Park Lakes are designated as safe for golf carts, so he was told by a Highlands County Sheriffs deputy to park his cart. County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete said he can apply for a designation, but rst he needs to know which of the nearby roads Bennett has used or wants to use. Courtesy of Peggy BennettBrandon Bennett, 23, sits on his mobility scooter at Lake Olivia while his golf cart (background) sits idle. Bennett needs some form of mobility to overcome Kniest dysplasia, a rare bone disorder resulting in shortened stature and painfully enlarged joints, but has been told by a Highlands County Sheriffs deputy not to drive the golf cart in Avon Park Lakes or face a ticket. His mobility scooter cannot actually take him this close to the lake where he likes to sh. Getting this photo required pushing the scooter across sandy soil and lifting it several times when it got stuck.BRADENTON Two Bradenton police detectives are accused of br eaking into city hall to use the bathroom and leaving the building unsecured for an entir e w eekend.

With dedication and determination, she has successfully managed to open a shop at the same time offer ing lovely jewelry and specializ ed accent appar el. This enterpr ising young lady also runs the Palms Catering Service in addition to being a wife and mother. S he believ es her career at The Palms of S ebr ing helped give her the condence and courage to take on this new venture, and her dream to own her own business came to frui tion just a few weeks ago There seems to be no stopping this young woman. Bueford became in terested in wearing beautiful jew elr y and dressing stylishly many years ago because of someone very dear to her. My great-grand mother was always fashionably dr essed, said Bueford, and I wanted to be just like her. She lived in the Bronx, New York, and worked at an elite fash ion boutique herself. Lav er nia Bueford opened Precious Collections on Friday, A pr il 4, 2014. She has worked very hard for many years in order to make this lifelong dream come true. This has always been a dream of mine, said Bueford. Ive loved high fashion since I was a little girl, and I could envision myself doing this for so many years. Included in the line of high fashion but reasonably priced jew elry is a line of sandals, dress and casual shoes, a wide variety of accent and innity scarves, as well as handbags Ladies you will not believe the selection of handbags! Bueford carries a very special line of handbags for those somewhat eccentric ladies licensed to carr y their own small handguns. Smartly decorated with rhinestones and other beading, they are designed to carry your choice of person al weaponry, and they ev en hav e matching wallets. Lavernia Bueford is from Queens, New York, and she brought her dream all the way to Sebring. She has worked very hard at The Palms of Sebring for 11 years, starting as a cook, then became clinic dietician and working her way up to Dining and Ca tering Services Manager. S he is no w a Certied Dietician Manager. Bueford never gave up the desir e to hav e a high fashion boutique of her own, and actually started selling jewelry on the side two y ears ago Now it would appear her dedication, deter mination and cour age along with lots of har d wor k paid off. Her dream has come true. If you have ques tions, call the Precious C ollections boutique at 863-835-3675. If a man should answer, that would be S ean B ueford, Lavernias husband. He kindly offer ed to ll in temporarily until more help is hired. He believes in my dream, too said Lavernia, smiling, and I m v ery grateful for his help and support. Precious Collections is located at 112 S. Ridgewood D r ive, just off the circle in downtown Sebring. Her hours are 11:00 to 6:00, Monday through Saturday, and 12:00 to 5:00 on Sundays.

The three newspapers are starting to share news stories, photos and some other resources. While it was not unusual to see shared news between the Lake Plac id Journal and Highlands Journal, the scope of sharing has expanded with the News-Sun being recently pur chased by Sun Coast Media Group, the same parent company that o wns the two Journals in Highlands County. For decades, or perhaps generations, the Journal brand and the News-Sun were competitors. It was common to see reporters and photographers from both newspapers at the same events and meetings. Now that seems an unnecessary duplication of efforts. The goal is to bring more valuable news to the readers of all three news papers. How editors will decide which stories to shar e and how to designate those remains a work in progress. A good example is this week with the Lake Placid Journal and High lands Journal welcoming stories from the News-S un, as well as a state track meet story written about a Lake Placid athlete but authored by a sports writ er from our Port Charlotte Sun team. Stor ies originating from our sister newspapers are designated as such. Just look for the byline the authors name at the top of the story. Just be low the writers name will be Jour nal Staff, Journal Correspondent, N ews-Sun Staff, Charlotte Sun Staff, etc. The same will hold true in the NewsSun. Bylines from Lake Placid Journal and Highlands Journal staff members and correspondents will appear there, too. There will be a bit of a learning curve as the staffs of our sister newspapers get to know one anothers strengths and weaknesses. But the results, even from our earliest efforts, will result in more value for our readers. Were continuing to grow and ex pand our resources in Highlands County to ser ve you, the reader, with more complete and comprehensive news coverage from all the communities we serve. We see ex citing times ahead for re porters, editors and, more importantly, for our combined readership. We urge y ou to join with us in the excite ment. Share with us your thoughts and opinions. We promise well listen. You just might see your idea incorpo rated into the pages of our Highlands County family of newspapers .An editorial from the Lake Placid Journal.Exciting times ahead for sister newspapersBenghazi games continueLike a rematch of a game of pin the tail on the donkey, chairman (Darrell) Issa ... paraded a former Air Force Brigadier Robert Lovell, who testied somewhat v aguely that more should have been done to help Ambassador Stevens and his three-man team. The former Africom J2, who was stationed in Stuttgart, Ger many, during the time in question, testied that military assets were in fact not available any closer than A viano Air B ase in northeast Italy, nearly 1,000 miles away. The American embassy, located in Tripoli, the capital of Lib ya, some 550 miles distance from Benghazi, lacked forces adequate to affect any change, particularly in view of the dis tance. Ultimately Lovells testimony was that he regretted that mor e was not done never focusing on the absence of assets in the ar ea. A pparently Ambassador Ste vens was visiting Benghazi with a view to visiting the newly established consulate there, which was as y et not pr operly staffed nor protected. Despite being fully aware of the status of security Stevens, the ranking U.S. representative in Libya, chose to go for war d with this visit ...Some members of Issas committee are enthusiastically contending that State Department failed to adequately provide for an at ready extraction for ce for the Ambassador, but this view is totally at odds with the facts on the ground at the time... However, Issa and his stalwarts, Mica, Chaffetz, and others, with near hysteria and emotional toning, gave rambling accusator y statement, which had little to do with the gener als statements or with any real bear ing on the question RR AND yY LUDACERLake PlacidHappy anniversary, Change of PaceTwo years ago, we opened the doors of Change of Pace, a nonprot daytime activity center for adults with Alzheimers or relat ed dementias. Our prime focus at the time was to giv e the car egiver a day of much needed rest. W e pr ovided the clients with a safe environment and a variety of planned activities to stimulate their minds and to keep them active. We have learned so much dur ing the past two years, one thing being, the clients hav e indeed beneted as much as the caregivers. The socialization with other clients as w ell as our wonder ful volunteers and staff has giv en them an oppor tunity to maintain their dignity. Change of Pace is hosted by Sebring Christian Church, which provides us with the space to operate the center. Two years ago we opened with three cli ents and some very nervous staff and v olunteers this week our daily average is 19 clients a day and staff and volunteers who are condent of a job well done. We are so proud of the ser vice that we offer to Highlands C ounty Change of P ace, Inc. Day Care/Activities Center for Adults with Alzheimers or Dementias at 4514 Hammock Road (863382-1188). Happy anniversary, Change of Pace.JEAN MAASChange of PaceHave you seen the YouTube video called Look Up by Gary Turk? As of Tuesday morning, he had more than 20 million views of this ve-minute video. The message is profound and much what so many of us feel and often commu nicate between our selves. Perhaps to some in our close cir cle of fr iends, but rarely to anyone else. Turk talks about the 422 people he calls friends and how he talks to them daily but v er y few really know him. Hes talking, of course, about this thing called social media ... F acebook, Twitter, Instagram, the list goes on, especially if youre a mem ber of the younger generation. Like T urk, I have noticed how many people seem to have their eyes glued to a smartphone, or walk around with an electronic notepad in their hands. Some ar e simply scanning, while others are texting or playing games. I often can be sitting in a restaurant and start to chuckle while looking ar ound and seeing patr ons of all ages with their noses stuck in their phones r ather than talking to the per son sitting across the table from them. I v e threatened my own children more than once that they can start eating alone if they arent going to converse with me ... and I dont mean by text messages. I get really aggravated when my son will be in one room and send me a text message asking me to bring him something to drink. I didnt raise a lazy child, so what the heck!? Im sure not a servant. Of course, I know now that a lot of times hell ask me for something via a text message just so he can see me get irri tated. And I will admit to loving those little text messages I get long after I think he s asleep that simply say one more time, Goodnight Mom. I love you. My oldest is also real good to send me a text letting me know she has arrived at work, or whatever her destination is. T ext messaging is OK in some instances, but its also one of those social media sources that has been overabused ... at least in my opinion. Ive heard from more than one person whose children will sit in the same room with them and communicate only through a text message. Whats wrong with that?! Turks video goes on to show two young ladies sitting on a bench, both on their smart phones, when a third young lady comes o v er to sit down. They look up at her and instant ly go back to their smartphones. N o hello No acknowledgement. Nothing. Thats another scene Ive witnessed too often. What does that third young lady do? She sits there with her hands in her pockets and just looks around. Probably wishing she had someone to talk to. Social media does serve a purpose, but dont get sucked in to it to the point that it con sumes you. C ommunicate Speak to the person sitting across the table from you at dinner. Talk with your children, or your parents, even your siblings. Pick up the phone and call someone rath er than send them a text message. You may not be looking into their ey es but you can at least hear a voice. Take more than a minute to send someone a handwritten note instead of an email. Disconnect. Silence your phone and set it aside. Turn off the computer. Get outside or even dust off an old board game and challenge your family to a night of fun and popcorn. You might learn something from them. Lets not become a nation of dumb people just because we have smart phones.Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor at the News-Sun.

They found Ryan Rawlings, 29, of Lake Placid, standing disheveled and out of breath beside a blue 2004 Dodge N itro. According to police reports, Rawlings said he met a man called Sam that morning on Grapefruit Avenue in Sebring, near Para dise Apartments, and had agr eed to giv e him a ride to the north end of Sebring. Rawlings told police he got a call from S am later identied as Collins later that day, asking for another r ide Rawlings said he took Collins to several places before Collins then asked to go to his br other s house in the area of MLK Boulevard and Lemon Avenue in Se bring, reports said. As they arr iv ed in the area at 6:20 / p .m., Collins asked him to stop in a dirt lot near the intersection. When they stopped, Rawlings said, Col lins went crazy and star ted hitting R awlings in his head and chest, y elling at him about how Rawlings thought Collins was a piece of (expletive deleted). C ollins then r eached into the back seat toward two gas cans, thr eatening to bur n up the car, reports said. Rawlings told police he was able to push Collins away from the cans, but Collins then started pulling apart dashboard and cen ter consoles, causing appro ximately $100 in damage. As this was happening, Rawlings was telling Collins to get out of the v ehicle and said he was forced to grab a machete he keeps for protection to threaten Collins to leave. However, as he left, Collins grabbed the keys from the ignition and tossed them on the ground. Rawlings told police he found his keys, but the igni tion key was missing. S ev eral witnesses, who did not give names to police said they saw the ght inside the Dodge and saw Toby Collins middle name get out with a set of keys and thr ow them in the dirt behind the car. They said the ght continued outside the car until the driv er went back into the car for a machete and w ent after Collins before several men in the ar ea surr ounded him and kept him from getting to Collins. A police ofcer retrieved the machete and secur ed it in a patr ol car while investigating the scene. N o char ges were led on Rawlings. Sebring Cmdr. Steve Carr said Florida law permits self-defense against a physical attack. Another ofcer saw Collins walking on MLK Boulevard toward Lemon Avenue during the investigation. The ofcer detained Col lins, but as he was being detained, Collins complained of chest pains The ofcer called for Highlands County Emergency Medical Services. Both EMS and S ebr ing Fire and Rescue responded. Collins was taken to H ighlands R egional Medical Center Emer gency Room, where he was medically clear ed and then taken to jail.

How much that will cost remains to be seen. Commissioners were assured that aspect would be brought back to the board for additional consideration following a feasi bility study. Ford gave a primary estimate of betw een $1,000 and $10,000 annually depending on the type of structure built. Additionally, the lakes manager estimated that management of inv asiv e aquatic plants could run as much as $35,000 a year. Commissioner Jim Brooks noted that in documents he found from June of 1960, it was indicated that maintenance funds were to be raised by spe cial taxation levied on the landowners in the watershed. Those would be assessed b y the boar d of county commissioners. Highlands County administrator June Fisher indicated that although ther e is a special taxing distr ict still in existence, ther e had been no r ecent collections. That has been set up , she said. I understand there are some funds that still exist in it but it has not been collected in several years. The Fisheating Creek has nearly a quarter century of legal disputes between conservation ists and Lykes Brothers dating back to 1989. The issue r evolves around the publics ability to sh and boat on the Lake O keechobee tr ibutary. In 1997, a jury concluded that Fisheating Creek is a naviga ble waterway and ordered that boaters not be blocked fr om using the cr eek. I n J uly of last year, an admin istrative judge ruled against the F lor ida Department of Environmental Protection, indicating the state agency could not block off the cr eeks navigation chan nel. CREEK FR omOM paPA G eE A1 BY BARR YY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING A Tallahassee-based rm has been r ecommended to do a salary study for Highlands County. Evergreen Solutions topped the list of a half dozen rms which ap plied to do the work. The company has par tner ed with various agencies r anging fr om school districts, municipalities, non-profit organizations and ev en state entities to do compensation and classication studies. They most recently were retained by Miami-Dade County to conduct a compensation survey. As requested in Highlands, ranges there are scheduled to be analyz ed in both the public and private sector to determine the appropriate pay levels for all included jobs. Recommendations then will be provided to improve the fair ness and equity in the curr ent system. Plans for such an analysis in Highlands County surfaced after commissioner Don Elw ell asked that the number of the existing pay grades and their r anges her e be reviewed. I tr uly do feel that we have too many pay grades and the ranges in each of them is astr onomical, Elwell said at the time. His comments came following back-to-back employee requests from Highlands Coun ty Emergency Services Director Harvey Craven and Highlands C ounty P arks & Recreation Director Vickie P ontius County administrator June Fisher told the boar d the action alr eady was under way. E v ergreen Solution President Dr. Linda Re cio said her organization uses a number of tools dur ing such salar y studies, including survey techniques, compar ison for mulas, questionnaires and ev aluation tools Its one of our core competencies, Recio said. Since we created the rm in 1994 we have done mor e than 350 projects and better than 300 of those were salary and classication studies.

Monday was the rst day in the trial of Julie Schenecker, who has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to two counts of rst-degree murder. Police say Schenecker fatally shot her teenagers in January 2011 while thenhusband was deployed overseas. After prosecutors and attorneys gave opening statements, a crime scene technician told the court about notes and journal entries found in the house, including a sticky note on a calendar that detailed where the teens bodies were. Scheneckers attorneys say their client was profoundly mentally ill and they plan to use an insanity defense.Jury hears graphic details in double murder trial File photoHighlands County Sheriffs Of ce investigators tape off the area of East State Street in Avon Park where Dwayne Council Jr. was found in the street with fatal gunshot wounds on Nov. 23.convenience store that night, then drove to Gwen Hill Street, one street north of where Councils body was eventually found. Moses and Council exited the van and the man witnessed Council giving Moses a pistol, later identi ed as belonging to Council. He told investigators that Moses said they were going to meet some Hispanics for a drug transaction. Moses and Council began walking south toward the basketball court on East State Street, according to the af davit, while the witness moved the van to Lassiter Street, one street south of where the shooting would be. A few minutes later, he heard several gunshots from the area where the two men had been. The witness drove the van around to East State Street and saw a body lying in the roadway, but he couldnt tell if it was Council or Moses. He didnt see anyone else going in or out of the area after the shots, the af davit said. When he saw Moses the next morning in the area of Hal McRae Boulevard and South Delaney Avenue, Moses was acting strange and nervous and had changed clothes. When he asked Moses about Council, Moses said the deal went bad and people started shooting. He said he got one shot off at the others and both he and Council ran in different directions. However, investigators didnt nd any evidence in the area of the shooting to support multiple gunshots from any other guns than Councils pistol or anyone else being in the area, report said. Investigators learned that Moses was at a friends house 20 minutes after the shooting, out of breath, acting nervous, and asking for something to start a re. Af davits said they saw Moses take off his outer clothing shorts, T-shirt, jacket, bandana and gloves and burn it behind their home while talking on a cell phone. He then left on foot. Highlands County Sheriffs deputies later found the charred clothing. During their investigation, deputies discovered shoes at Moses house that matched shoe impressions left at the scene, as well as information from another friend, who Moses called several times during the night before the shooting. The friend told investigators he didnt answer the phone, but had listened to the voice mails, stating Moses had left something under the air conditioner outside his home. It was a black handgun, reports said. He then borrowed two ankle socks to conceal the gun and left town with it, af davits said. According to af davits, Moses told his friend he had shot Council one or two times. Investigators arrested Moses on Dec. 13, 2013, on charges of tampering with evidence. He was unable to post bond and stayed there. During that time, a letter sent from Moses cell block appeared to contain code telling where the gun was hidden, and asked the recipient to retrieve the gun. Following those directions, detectives found the pistol, wrapped in two ankle socks and buried in an orange grove near Moses mothers house. The friend con rmed that the pistol and socks were the same he had seen with Moses. He also said Moses had tried to get him to buy the pistol from Council. Deputies also had sworn statements from a fellow inmate of Moses, who said Moses told him he had emptied the gun into Council while high on drugs. Another inmate told investigators that Moses told him on April 5, 2014, about how when Council rounded a corner on the night of the shooting, Moses shot him two or three times in the face and ve or six times in the chest. Moses reportedly told the inmate he hid the gun in an orange grove, burned his clothes and bathed in bleach before running to Polk County. The inmate asked Moses if he stole anything from Council, and Moses said he hadnt, af davits said. When investigators showed Moses the gun concealed inside black socks, he said it was Dwayne Councils gun, af davits said. Investigators said only someone with personal knowledge could have known it was a gun and whose gun it was.

Three Sebring student-athletes competed amid horrid weather conditions at the N or th Florida campus in Jacksonville. It was in the 50s, heavy rains and gusting winds, head coach C ynthia C ook said. They kept stopping and starting the pole vault because of the winds, but everything else was going off as scheduled. The off and on delays wreaked havoc in the pole vault as four competitors, including two that had come in seeded at 13-feet and 13feet, 6-inches failed to clear the 12-foot opening height. Among those four unfortunately, was Blue Streak Byron Cobb.

D urant, a 6-foot9 forward, won his fourth scoring crown in ve years this season by averaging 32 points per game He helped the Thunder nish the regular season with a 5923 r ecor d, second-best in the league, despite playing much of the season without threetime All-Star Russell Westbrook by his side because of a nagging knee injury. Hes been the most consistent guy all sea son long, Westbrook said at the end of the r egular season. Hes done a great job of leading us to where we are now. Hes basically put himself in front of everybody else in the league and shown that hes the best player in the world. James agreed, say ing Monday: Much r espect to him and he deserves it. He had a big-time MVP season. D ur ants run of 41 consecutive games this season with at least 25 points was the third-longest streak in NBA history. In all, he scored at least 40 points 14 times. He also averaged 7.4 rebounds and a ca reer-high 5.5 assists while shooting 50 per cent from the eld. H e does every thing, New Orleans coach M onty Williams said. You just can t recall a guy that long who can do what he does every single night. Shooting from 30 feet on the oor with condence and driving to the bas ket and dunking on guys and then go post up, and on top of it, a great teammate and good kid.

I actually almost think he overtrained for it, Cook said. He wanted it so bad and he was working so hard on it, but the distanc es were coming back a bit. And while he didn t reach his ultimate goal, being a two-time state qualier is something Demarest will be able to look back upon with pride. As for Blount, the season was one of sparks that continued through this penulti mate stage. H e competed with us last year, but he wasnt that focused on it, Cook said. He was in other sports and would just kind of drop by and do his events. But something sparked him this year to really dedicate him self and the results wer e great, she continued. He went thr ough the whole season undefeated in the long jump then won district and regionals too. Blount was the fourth seed heading in, within just a few inches of the top, giving him the sense that he had a chance. I was excited be cause I knew I was close, Blount said. But it was also pret ty nerve-wracking because it was such a huge facility with so many mor e people than Im used to. Then, of course, there was the weather and the resulting conditions. Ther e was a good amount of water under the board where theyd jump from, Cook said. So whenever they would hit that board to take off, there would be a big splash. It was of little sur prise then that the distances were wildly var ying among all the jumpers. Eventual champion Tyler Byrd of Naples ev en fouled on one attempt, but did explode on one jump for a distance of 23-feet, 7 1/2-inches Blounts jumps were more consistent, and got him as high as a third seed. But Tampa Jeffersons Deiondre Porter, who also had an early foul, pulled off a jump of 23feet, 6-inches on his last attempt. And Mosleys Nat Dixon, who also had a couple of fouls, went for 22-feet, 3 1/2-inch es on his nal jump to knock Blount do wn to fth in the nal standings. Which only pr ovides him with anoth er spark. I t was a great experience to make it there and compete against the best in the state , Blount said. And it only makes me want to get back there next year.

After a scoreless third inning, Rotary tacked on one more run in the top of the fourth. Zach Miller reached on a single before making his way to third with the help of a stolen base and Taylor. A passed ball saw an opportunity to score, which Miller was able to capitalize on. The Elks were un able to respond to this r un in the bottom of the inning, but they were able to ward off any more Rotary runs in the top of the fth. In the bot tom of the fth, the E lks added two more r uns to the board. Jones reached on a dropped third strike, followed by a single up the mid dle by Bender. A call on catcher interference put Payton S pencer on rst with the bases now loaded. Dalton Green drew a walk to bring in Jones, adding another run for the Elks. Cash Smoak managed a one-RBI single to bring in Bender to br ing the score to 8-5. Unfortu nately for the E lks this would be the last run to cross the plate, nalizing a win for R otar y. I tell the boys, when you put the ball in play, good things happen, said Elks coach JJ Bender. And indeed they did for the Elks, as key hits did allow for them to creep on Rotarys lead despite the games end result. One thing I am proud of is that even the boys who struck out went down swing ing. They w ere aggressive at the plate, and those ar e the things I like. The boys keep play ing hard, commended Bender.

The other day I overheard my older son (age 17) talking with a friend about twerking. I have never heard of it and now Im worried. Is twerking a drug term? Is it similar to tripping, getting high or cat shing? My 17-year-old is supposed to go to Princeton next year on a sports scholarship, and Im afraid twerking will derail him from his charted path. Thank you for any advice you may have. TROUBLED MOM IN CONNECTICUTDEAR MOM: Dont panic. Tripping and getting high, as you already know, refer to altered states of consciousness as the result of using drugs. Cat shing is something else. Its pretending to be someone you arent, creating a false identity on social media, usually to pursue a deceptive online romance. The twerking your son was referring to is a dance move recently made famous by Miley Cyrus in which the dancer (usually female) gyrates in a provocative, semi-squatting position that involves thrusting hip movements. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are not big fans of his best friends wife. Aracely is extremely ill-mannered. She never says thank you, didnt even write thank-you notes for their wedding and baby showers, and when were at a restaurant will loudly announce that the food was disgusting. Aracely claims our baby cries too much. She arrived at my sons second birthday party with a hangover and so much more. She claims she doesnt observe our Southern ways because she comes from South America and has been in the United States for only eight years. We keep our interactions with her limited, but do not cut her off completely because my husband values his friendship with her husband. I told my husband Im considering giving her an etiquette book, but he said it would be rude. I disagree. I think it would nullify Aracelys argument that she doesnt understand our Southern manners. Do you agree that it would be rude? MANNERED SOUTHERN GALDEAR SOUTHERN GAL: Sorry, but I do agree, because the gift would be given with malicious intent, and Im pretty sure that while Aracely lacks polish, she isnt stupid. Her problem isnt that she doesnt understand good manners because shes from South America. I have met individuals from South America who are educated, cultured and whose manners are re ned. Obviously, Aracely does not come from this kind of background. ONLY if you could pull it off without sounding catty, the next time she hauls out the excuse for her deplorable manners, you might offer to buy her an etiquette book so she can learn the ways of her adopted country but dont expect her to take you up on it. DEAR ABBY: Would it be appropriate to send my future mother-in-law a Mothers Day card? I feel it would be a nice gesture to help start the relationship between us. NICK IN OMAHADEAR NICK: I concur. In fact, I suspect it will melt her heart to know you feel that way about her, even before you marry her daughter.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Chances are, you have a refrigerator in your home. But, if youre like many peo ple, you dont put a lot of thought into the what-goes-wher e process when you get your gr ocer ies home from the market. There is a reason why your fridge has all of those drawers and shelves. Certain areas of your fridge have dif ferent temperature and humidity contr ols and thats why different types of food are intended to be stored in specic places Who wants to send their produce into the dark recesses of the refrigerator to die? Nobody! So lets learn mor e shall we?Temperature, ethylene and humidity ... oh my!You know how sometimes youll nd a oppy zucchini at the bottom of your fridge? Or a bunch of carr ots that have gone limp after a day or two? Thats because you let them become dehydrated. T o keep y our produce fresh longer, you need a cer tain amount of water vapor in the air or a good level of relative humidity, depending on the type of v egetable or fr uit. A good way to remember which produce requires more humidity is to think of which wilt the fastest. Foods that require the highest levels of relative humidity are your celer y grapes, zucchini, cucumber, beans, leafy gr eens asparagus, avocado, pears and berr ies Things like citrus, tomatoes, melon and sweet potato can handle medium lev el humidity, while dried garlic, squash, onions and pumpkins are more suited for lo w er levels of relative humidity and they don t really even need to be stored in the refrigerator. Y ou kno w that crisper drawer at the bottom of the fridge? That s where the most humidity is generally found. If theres a little sliding tab on the fr ont of the dr awers for adjusting the humidity levels, use it! That featur e closes the v ent and keeps dry air from getting to your produce so it can stay nice and hy dr ated down there. Keep the relative humidity set at 90 or 100 per cent, the setting wher e most of that pr oduce will be happiest. S peaking of that crisper drawer, some types of produce dont play nicely with others and should be stored separately. As vegetables and fruits ar e har vested, they will most often continue to ripen. When this happens, the food produces ethylene gas. This gas can negativ ely affect other fr uits and veggies. It can cause gr een v egetables to yellow, potatoes to sprout, carrots to tur n bitter and aspar agus to toughen. C ommon ethylene producers include apples, pears, plums, peaches and cantaloupes. K eep v eggies in one drawer and fruits in the other and you should be ne.Storing meat and eggsYour fridge probably has a meat keeper drawer. That is the coldest par t of y our fridge, so use it for your meat (which is likely the most perishable item in there any way). You can keep sh in ther e too, as long as you dont forget about it. Fresh sh really should be eaten the day y ou br ing it home, so you shouldnt have to worry about keeping it fresh for more than a couple of hours. Fridges used to come with little egg hold ers on the door some still do! B ut, y ou should never store your eggs there. Why not? You should never store anything highly perishable or items that ar e sensitiv e to temperature changes in the door of the fr idge Thats because each time the door of the fridge is opened, a blast of warm air hits that area. Eggs need to stay deep inside the fridge where theyll en joy a nice, even cold temper atur e. On that note, however, you should always br ing eggs up to r oom temperature before you cook them. This will help prevent your yolks from breaking and it will help them cook more evenly in general.CondimentsUse the door of the fridge to store those condiments you may use on a regular or semi regular basis.

G ardner recently came back from a tr ip that he attended on behalf of Rotary to Costa Rica, where he helped turn an empty eld with a concrete wall ar ound it into a childrens playground. Of course, he could not do this by himself he had helped from numerous other Ro tarians along with the R otar act Club from USF. He told Rotarians about how hard the ground was in Costa Rica. They rst tried to dig holes with a shovel and nally they had to get a pickaxe. The stu dents from USF were picking up the axe to their waist and then dropping it. Gardner asked if he could tr y it, and he picked it up over his head and brought it down and a whole chunk of rock came loose. Pretty good for a man who is over 70 compared to USF students in their 20s. The playground has teeter totters, slides, swings and murals painted all over the walls surrounding it, among other things. The children were very happy with the end results. Their enter tainment usually consists of sitting on their por ches and watching cars go by.Gardner shares tales of Costa Rica trip with Rotary Courtesy photoGary Cavasos (left) and Kenny Gardner, Lake Placid Noon Rotary.

Come June, the group will be planting caladiums supplied by Happiness Farms and the PLHOA will join Lake Placids yearly contest. Ef e has her game plan ready to make the town hall one of the outstanding contenders. The trip to the dinner theatre is lled, and there is a waiting list. Tickets will be passed out at the June 5 meeting. The group will leave from the town hall on Wednesday, June 11 by bus. Time schedules will be available. This is a matinee performance. There will be a July 4 Cook-Out at Tobler Park for the members and quali ed guests starting at 1 p.m. The menu will be hot dogs, pasta salad, baked beans, potato chips and iced tea and water. The group may opt to go the ball elds to watch the reworks. Bring a chair for the cook-out. The Paddlewheel Cruise out of Fort Myers will be on Saturday, Aug. 9 and Princess Dianne Tours will be bussing us down there at 3:30 p.m. This is a dinner/dance cruise including the allyou-care-to-eat buffet, dancing, music, sunset.

The group voted to collect non-perishable box or canned goods at each meeting to help our local food bank in Lake Placid, Manna Ministries. Joyce Briski, Olive Jackson and Susie Lee delivered a trunkfull of food to Manna this past week, and were given a guided tour by Marlene showing the work of the many volunteers stocking the shelves, and lling the bags that are handed out to the needy. The Dalton Gang will continue their help stocking the shelves. Betty Hardy came up with some pictures of the Cat sh Creek bridge being built. Were starting to gather some good history, and the Pioneers are coming alive. The next meeting for the Pioneer group is May 15 at 11:30 a.m. A trip to the Keys is being checked out; nothing de nite yet. This will be by boat out of Fort Myers; well have info by June 5. We are prisoners of the Wood-Ducks; they rule. If we want to have them visit, we must stay out of sight and in the house. Dont make loud noises, but keep them fed. They love oatmeal, and their keeper has made an oatmeal trail from their nesting boxes on up to their dining room where the bird-feeders are; after that the keeper is exiled. Being ducks, the rain is no problem, and they have free range. Were the ones cooped up!Tropical Harbor EstatesBy Arlene CloustonLAKE PLACID The April 27 matinee was well attended. The movie, Secondhand Lion, kept everyone entertained. Coffee and cake is a good way to start the afternoon. More than $100 was donated to Nu-Hope Senior Care Services and we are so appreciative. The carry-in dinner on April 24 had more food than people. Those that came were happy that they did. Marilyn Cromer led the pledge to the U.S. ag and said Grace. Monday morning coffee on April 28 was made by Brenda and Rick Knoche. Peggy Sue Teague was the emcee. She introduced Jodi Susco, the park manager. Jodi said that the men would start working on the pools this week. Jodi also asked if we would appreciate the local police coming and speaking with us on a Monday morning, which we all were in favor of. From the hands that went up in response to Peggy Sues question, whos leaving?, the last of our snow birds will be leaving this week. The attendance to the Monday morning coffee has gone down and down. Peggy Sue then read the birthdays and anniversaries for the week and the only couple present were Carolyn and John Reece. We sang Happy Anniversary to Carolyn and John on their 33rd as Ruth Ann Walls played the piano. The Big Red Bus was here this morning for blood donations. Blood is always needed. Bill was introduced. He said for each donation, three peoples lives will be saved. Carol Noel gave the Sunshine Report: Sandy Doubek and James Lindgren were in the hospital with pneumonia but both are home. James Heth is now a hospital patient. We are sorry to hear that James Dean passed away. Evelyn Guineys memorial was May 4 in the clubhouse. Rick Knoche reminded everyone that watering at noon is against the law. You can water in the evening, but watering early in the morning is better for the plants. It also does away with mold that you may nd on or around your plants due to the fact that it cant dry when watering late in the day. Tuesday morning ladies coffee was made by Marysue Willeke, and Marilyn Cromer led the meeting. Marilyn mentioned that the pool parties have started on Thursday evenings. Bring a snack, something to drink, swim and visit with friends. Our Sunshine Lady, Carol Noel, mentioned that there are get-well cards to sign for Helen Burgan and Elaine Shell. Two occasions coming up this month are Mothers Day and Memorial Day. Plans were discussed and are being made. Mothers Day is May 11 and a dinner is planned to take place at 5 p.m. for $8. Memorial Day is May 26 and will be celebrated with a picnic lunch. Red Hats are going to Jaxsons on May 8 at 11:30 a.m. Weather permitting, we will be eating out on the deck. The noon carry-in will be May 13 in the clubhouse. The ladies lunch out will be at Red Lobster at 11:30 a.m. on May 20. Shari Kendall is planning it. We have heard from our eldest granddaughter, Dr. Chatel E. White, the archeologist, in regard to her summer schedule. She is ying to Greece on June 5. She will be working at a dig for Princeton University as she did last year. When this job is done, she will be ying to Istanbul, Turkey to teach in the summer study program for Harvard University.

BB IRT hH AN NOUNCE mM EN T sS MARK SHERMANAssociated PressWASHINGTON A narrowly divided Supreme Court upheld decidedly Chr istian prayers at the start of local council meetings on Monday, declar ing them in line with long national tr aditions though the country has grown more religiously diverse. The content of the prayers is not signif icant as long as they do not denigr ate nonChr istians or try to win converts, the court said in a 5-4 decision backed by its conservative majority. Though the decision split the cour t along ideological lines, the Obama administration backed the winning side, the town of G r eece, N.Y., outside of Rochester. The outcome relied heavily on a 1983 decision in which the cour t upheld an opening pr ayer in the Nebraska Legislature and said pr ay er is part of the nations fabric, not a violation of the First Amendments guarantee of freedom of religion. W r iting for the court on Monday, Justice Anthony Kennedy said that for cing cler gy to scrub the prayers of ref erences to Jesus Christ and other sectar ian r eligious gures would tur n ofcials into censors Instead, Kennedy said, the pr ay ers should be seen as ceremonial and in keeping with the nations traditions. The inclusion of a brief, ceremonial prayer as part of a larg er exercise in civic recognition suggests that its purpose and effect ar e to acknowledge re ligious leaders and the institutions they r epr esent, rather than to exclude or coerce nonbelievers, Kennedy said. J ustice E lena Kagan, writing for the courts four liberal justices, said, I respectfully dis sent from the courts opinion because I think the Town of Greeces prayer practices violate that norm of religious equality the breathtakingly generous constitutional idea that our public institutions belong no less to the Buddhist or Hindu than to the M ethodist or E piscopalian. K agan said the case differs signicantly from the 1983 decision because Greeces to wn meetings inv olve participation by ordinary citizens, and the inv ocations giv en directly to those citizens w er e predominantly sectarian in content. Kennedy himself was the author of an opinion in 1992 that held that a Chr istian pr ayer delivered at a high school graduation did violate the Constitution. The justice said M onday ther e are differences between the two situations including the age of the audi ence and the fact that attendees at the council meeting may step out of the r oom if they do not like the prayer. In her dissent, Kagan said the council meeting prayers are unlike those said to open sessions of C ongr ess and state legislatures, where the elected ofcials are the intended audience. In Greece, the pr ayers there are directed squarely at the citizens, she said. Kagan also noted what she described as the meetings intimate setting, with 10 or so people sitting in front of the towns elected and top appointed of cials. Children and teenagers are likely to be present, she said. Kennedy and his four colleagues in the majority all are Catholic. They ar e: Chief J ustice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clar ence Thomas. K agan was joined b y Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor. Of the four, three are Jewish and Sotomayor is Catholic. Senior counsel Da vid Cortman of the Alliance Defense Freedom, which r epr esented the town, applauded the court for afrm ing that Americans are fr ee to pr ay. Ayesha Khan, legal director for Americans United for Separation of Church and S tate said the court disregarded the inter ests of religious minor ities and nonbelievers. B ut Khan said she saw a silver lining in the outcome because the court rejected a more sweeping ruling that would have made it even harder to prove a violation of the Consti tution. A feder al appeals court in New York had ruled that Greece violated the Constitution b y opening nearly ever y meeting over an 11y ear span with pr ayers that focused on Christianity. F r om 1999 through 2007, and again from January 2009 through June 2010, every meeting was opened with a Chr istian-or iented invocation. In 2008, after residents Susan G allo way and Linda Stephens complained, four of 12 meetings were opened by nonChristians, including a Jewish layman, a Wic can priestess and the chair man of the local Bahai congregation. Galloway and Stephens are described in their court lings as a Jew and an atheist. A town employee each month selected clerics or lay people by using a local published guide of churches. The guide did not include non-Christian denom inations, however. The appeals cour t found that religious institutions in the town of just under 100,000 people ar e primarily Christian, and even Galloway and Stephens testied they knew of no non-Christian places of worship ther e The two residents led suit and a trial court ruled in the to wn s favor, nding that the town did not intentionally exclude non-Christians. It also said that the content of the prayer was not an issue because there was no desire to prose lytize or demean other faiths B ut a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that even with the high cour t s 1983 ruling, the practice of having one Chr istian pr ayer after another amounted to the to wn s endorsement of Christianity. K ennedy however, said judges should not be involved in evaluating the content of pr ay er because that could lead to legislatures requiring chaplains to redact the religious content from their message in or der to make it acceptable for the public sphere. He added, Govern ment may not mandate a civic r eligion that sties any but the most gener ic r eference to the sacred any more than it may prescribe a religious orthodoxy.
