With that, Brandons stepmother, Peggy Bennett, asked for volunteers from the audience at the Board of Governors meeting to help her gather signatures. The meeting was populated by a crowd largely in favor of golf carts and in sympathy with 23-year-old Brandon, who used to go shing along Lake Olivia until a Highlands County sheriffs deputy gave him a verbal warning about his off-road cart. Brandon has Kniest dysplasia, a bone disorder resulting in shorter stature, thickened painful joints, reduced mobility and problems with hearing and vision. He cant drive or work, Avon Park Lakes to petition for carts BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING A group of doctors reportedly is planning to fell the Sebring Lakeside Casino Building and Tea Room on the shores of Lake Sebring to make way for a new medical facility. Advanced Recovery System reportedly purchased the property earlier this month at a cost of $550,000 with plans to construct an 18,000-square-foot clinic there. This is spearheaded by Dr. Louis Gold and Dr. Mitchell Eisenburg, said Director of Development and Branding for Advanced Recovery System Allison Kreiger Walsh. The plan is to put up a beautiful new building. We will be investing several million dollars into the property. The new clinic reportedly will be a rehabilitation facility for teenagers with eating disorders and substance abuse issues among other things. Walsh said a combination of the existing medical community in Highlands county coupled with the natural appeal of the site led developers to the location. The lake is gorgeous. Once we saw that property we knew Teen rehab center set for Sebring Shores Katara Simmons/News-SunThe former Sebring Lakeside Casino & Tea Room building will soon be demolished and replaced with a teen rehab center. BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterORLANDO Highlands County middle-schoolers got a chance for rst-hand medical training this week at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine. By all accounts they were amazed Monday at innovations in medical training, with many of the 40 eighthgrade students telling organizers that they are considering medicine a viable career. They may also have been encouraged by the fact that their primary tour guide is a hometown boy named Robert Bobby Palmer, a 2003 Avon Park High School graduate.

BY PHIL A TTTT ING ERER Staff WriterAVON PARK With just a few questions, the Avon Park Planning and Zoning Board gave its OK to have percolation ponds on land between Lakes Anoka and Lelia. B oar d members voted unanimously Tuesday to recommend changing the land fr om medium-density residential to public institutional. The city has plans to buy the 69acr e tr act from the Bos ton Mining Company. City Manager Julian D eleon hopes to use 30 acres on a site away from the lakes for a pond to settle out treat ed water from the citys wastewater tr eatment plant. The rest, which consists of the lakeside pr oper ty, could be developed as a beach recreation area, he said. B oar d member Donald Cummings asked what else could be built on the land with the new designation. Jeff Schmucker, planner with the Central F lor ida Regional Planning Council, said public institutional land could also be used for a r e or police station, or other city facility, but theyre planning on a treatment pond. Deleon said the site, under residential zon ing, was permitted to hav e 1,100 units The property is orange grove both bordered and dissected by South Lake Boulevard, which is unpaved south of West Garrett Road. Schmucker said that the main impact of the change would be to eliminate trafc the area would have had under residential zon ing. This is v ery preliminary, Deleon told board members. We would keep the gr o ve around the pond to keep it out of sight, then develop the beachfront for recreation. When asked if the pond would hav e an odor, Administrative Programs Manager and acting City Clerk Maria Sutherland said it doesn t stink. Deleon also stated in an email that the water in city ponds looks like regular water, has no odor or turbidity, and has chlorine added, as required in the Flori da Department of Environmental Protection oper ating per mit. The property is being offered to the Avon P ar k City Council as an alternative to putting a spray eld at Avon Park Airport to take care of excess treated water owing into the current ponds at the wastewa ter plant, approximately two miles away. DEP r ated the plant earlier this year at 1.5 million gallons of efuent per day, but rated the settlement ponds at only 800,000 gallons per day because clay under the ponds isnt allowing them to drain. The hill between the two lakes is sandy, and Deleon told city coun cil members on Monday that it could handle all of the citys 1.5 million capacity, accommodating gr owth for another 30 or mor e years. The asking price is $16,000 per acre, approximately $1.12 million by Deleons estimate. He hopes to use $480,000 fr om the utility fund and $640,000 fr om the infr astructure fund to pay for it, if the city council approves.Zoning board recommends land for ponds RR EOPENING THE RR E dD CRO ssSS Courtesy of AA merican RR ed Cross MM idFF lorida RR e gionKaren Hagan, Regional CEO (left), and Sara Olson, Community Development Ofcer, speaking with a guest at the grand opening of the American Red Cross Mid-Florida Region Highlands County Service Center on April 30.

www.newssun.comFriday, May 16, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Y OO UR VIEWS The gazebo that graces the center of Lake Placids DeVane Park was a topic of discussion this week for Town Council. At question was wheth er the gazebo should be open to pub lic access or if use should be limited to t h ose who register and, perhaps, pay a minimal user fee. It should be noted that DeVane Park is not closed. Unlimited access to the gazebo is at issue, but the park itself is available to anyone at any time, as it rightfully should be. Some business leaders point out DeVane Park and its gazebo were built with taxpayer mon ey and the public has a right to access. Those folks ar e r ight. The issue is how to provide access and still maintain a showcase facility in the center of the park. Prompting the discussion was a de cision by Town Administrator Phil Wil liams to restrict access to the gazebo follo wing a wake of v andalism. Wil liams reported grafti, holes punched and kicked in walls br oken hand rails, and damage to the ceiling. The damage was expensive to repair, he said, and an embarrassment to the town. Vandalism at the gazebo has not been an issue since access has been limited with a simple chain draped across the entrances. Williams said. The only issue now is litter sometimes left on the gaze bo steps, he said. S ev eral suggestions came from Mon day evenings discussion. All center on keeping the gaz ebo pr istine and, at the same time, allowing public use. The questions became how, when, and un der what conditions the gazebo would be av ailable We agree with Council member Steve Bastardis position that the gazebo should not be available for general use as it was in the past. That would open the gazebo up for further vandalism. Those wishing to use the gazebo for a legitimate purpose would be allowed. There is, of course, the option of al lowing unlimited access to the gazebo -under the unblinking ey es of secur i ty cameras. When, or if, vandals return to do their damage the camer as would capture their actions and those respon sible could be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The theory would be this: catch one vandal and make an ex ample of that offender; word would spread and v andalism would stop. Council member Ray Royce explained the gazebo was originally planned for use during special events rather than as casual gathering place. The gazebo is the central point of a $1 million park renovation that resulted in a showplace venue in uptown Lake Placid. As such, it should be treated as the showplace it was intended to be. Ultimately the council decided to keep the gazebo closed for now. May or Holbrook urged the public to submit suggestions about gaz ebo access say ing comments would be welcomed.

DeVane Park gazebo access deserves discussion, ideasMy name is Kirsten Scarborough and I am a lifelong resident of Frostproof. As I was growing up, I attended schools in the city of Frostproof from the time of pre school through the end of my high school career. In high school, I was inv olv ed in several sports teams, including both soccer and tennis as w ell as several other on-campus and off-campus clubs and activities such as FFA, National Honor Society and serving as a youth leader at my local church. One program in par ticular that I thoroughly enjoyed and gained so much fr om was one I began my junior year of high school and continued through my senior year, known as The Princess Project. The Princess Proj ect was designed to pr o vide girls with gently used or new prom dr esses that had been donated by the local and surrounding communities at no cost to them. P r om can be a very expensive outing, and this projects goal was to cut down on prom-related costs. After graduating from high school in the spring of 2012, I be gan my college career at S tetson U niversity in Deland the following fall. I am currently a junior at S tetson U niversity with a major in C ommunications and Mass Media Studies and a minor in Jour nalism. A t S tetson, I am an active member of my sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha, where I have held sev er al positions on our programming council that have taught me mor e efcient communication, planning and documenting skills. Thr oughout high school, English and literature were always my fav or ite subjects; I always enjoyed writing and seemed to be r elativ ely successful at it. After taking an introductory journalism class my fr eshman y ear at Stetson, I knew it was something I wanted to pursue. Later, I took an upper level reporting class that demanded more from its students; w e had to produce a full story once a week, publish it online as well as in hard copy, and provide photos for each. I enjoyed the excite ment of the fast pace w e seemed to be mo ving at, as well as the wr iting of the stor y and the photos we were required to submit, which provided a visual aspect to our work. As a jour nalism minor I am r equired to obtain an inter nship in the related eld that will provide me with a better insight and onhand experience of what a job in the news room is like. By working with the News-Sun this summer for my internship, my goal is to take in as much as possible and gain exper ience in a variety of topics and tactics to fur ther my journal ism career both in the classr oom next fall, and in future job and internship experienc es.Kirsten Scarborough is an intern at the News-Sun and a F rostproof r esident.

I would concede that the article title is quite catchy and likely stirs a negativ e connotation on the citys acquisition of lakefront property for the alleged waste ponds. In its most basic element, the articles headline is mis leading the public in the worst way I n the state of Florida, waste ponds are not per mitted by the Department of E nvir onmental Protection. The proposed construction of percolation ponds on this pr oper ty would be for the application of high quality pristine tr eated water not waste ponds as stated in the papers headlines. We do not apply waste to our ponds. The City of Avon Park has a state of the art wastewater treatment facility that pr ocesses r aw untreated wastewater sewer; and after such extensive treatment processes, we then pr oduce a high quality pr is tine efuent that is sent to per colation ponds for inltr ation into the soil. T oday most citizens are aware of reclaimed wastewater that is regularly applied to golf courses, or applied at the residential level to irr igate lawns as a gr een environmental practice. The citys facility is regulated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The treated water dischar ged fr om our plant is monitored using real time telemetry technology to ensure environmental compliance at all times The water processed by our ponds looks like regular water, without odor, without turbidity and lastly with chlorine as required in our operating permit. The refering to our proposed project as waste ponds could be interpr eted as a complete misrepresentation of the facts.JULI aA N DELEON, P EE Avon Park City Manager SUBMI ssSS ION sS P OLICYLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

We are certain that the commitment to community and customers by Highlands Independent Bank will be continued and enhanced by Harbor with the continued support of the current Highlands Branch personnel and lending team during the period prior to closing and after the transition, Brown said. With the purchase, some bank operations will be consolidated, Shoop said. Back-ofce operations now in Sebring will move to Fort Pierce within the next seven to nine months, but the company is working to assimilate those employees into Highlands Independent Banks branches in Sebring, Sun N Lake Improvement District, Avon Park and Lake Placid. The company will also open new loan ofcer positions, Shoop said. They have the same mindset: A strong customer and employee focus, Shoop said. Its a great thing for us and the community. The merger is subject to regulatory and shareholder approval, Shoop said, with a tentative closing of Oct. 31, 2014. Shoop said the relationship with Harbor Community began in October 2013 when Highlands Independent Bank was looking for more capital. The new owners will bring new technology, Shoop said, such as eletronic document imaging services and lockbox services. It will help us advance and keep us on the forefront of technology, Shoop said. Shoop said Harbor Community has a ve-star rating with Bauer Financial. The company has analyzed and reported on the banking industry since 1983, helping depositors navigate nancial situations, such as the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s, according to BauerFinancial.com. Harbor Community traces its roots to 1960 as the First Bank of Indiantown, which is still the only community-based bank in Indiantown, according to www.harborcb.com. It later expanded with branch of ces in Palm City, Okeechobee and Lakeport. In February of 2011, a group of local community bankers acquired the First Bank of Indiantown, changed the name to Harbor Community and began acquiring other banks, the company Website states.

Leo Fils, 16, was driving a dark blue Nissan Path nder along the sand and shell constructed road. Fils was reportedly making the westbound curve around Marble Avenue as he lost control and his car began to skid before it came in contact with a halfburied tire, causing the vehicle to roll, missing a nearby utility pole. The wreck was attended to by Deputy Bryan Adair of the Highlands County Sheriffs Of ce and the Highlands Lakes Volunteer Fire Department with a brush truck and re engine. No major injuries resulted from the accident, however, Fils was nursing a bandaged wrist. Although the crash left the vehicle with a busted windshield as well as broken sideview mirrors, all of the cars doors were intact and could be opened. No stop signs along these intersecting roads are present, but there are yield signs for the turn off of South Lake Boulevard onto Marble Avenue Swen Swenson of Highlands Lakes Volunteer Fire Department, made the comment that their re department frequently receives calls from cars that have lost control on that particular road.

BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING The Florida Health Department con rmed the rst Florida case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection Tuesday in a patient at an Orlando hospital. We are taking every precaution, but believe the risk of transmission from this patient is very low since his symptoms were mild and he was not coughing when he arrived at the hospital, said Dr. Antonio Crespo, infectious disease specialist and chief quality ofcer for Dr. P. Phillips Hospital. The patient is visiting the United States from Saudi Arabia, and ew through London, Boston and Atlanta, before arriving in Orlando on May 1. The patient was hospitalized May 9 and was placed in isolation once MERS-CoV was suspected, according to the Health Department. Efforts are underway to contact anyone who had close contact with the patient during travel or in the Orlando area. The patient remains in stable condition, according to the Health Department. Dr. Carina Blackmore, deputy state epidemiologist, said in a video press release that MERS-CoV is a new virus causing illness in the Middle East. It was rst reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Its rare and doesnt spread very effectively among people, Blackmore said, but the virus is very closely related to the SARS virus that spread very quickly around the world in 2003. Public health of cials are concerned that this new virus could change and gain the ability to spread quickly. The virus symptoms include congestion, cough, fevers over 100.4 degrees F, shortness of breath, pneumonia, body acres and diarrhea.Florida Health Dept. confirms MERS case KEVIN LOLLARThe News-PressNAPLES This was one big tree, a giant even among the giants of Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary the massive bald cypress trees lowest branch was as big as a mature live oak. Just the kind of tree Mike Knight and Ralph Arwood were looking for recently: The two men are in the rst phase of an Explorers Club expedition to study giant bald cypress trees at Corkscrew, the largest old-growth bald cypress stand in the world; the sanctuarys average oldgrowth cypress tree is 11 to 12 feet in circumference; giant trees are 17 to 23 feet. Knight, regional director of The Explorers Clubs Florida Chapter, and Corkscrew volunteer Arwood measured the trees circumference at 20.2 feet, which would make it about 700 years old; in other words, the tree was growing in Corkscrew during the Black Death in Europe and when Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. Thats a fun tree, Arwood said. I like that tree.

Still, he said he hopes to make Mondays rst school visit dubbed the Young Knights Symposium an annual event to inspire local students. What I enjoyed most was how many of the students that had never consid ered going into medicine now think of it, P almer said. R osalinda Jaramillio, an Avon Park Middle School student, said she was alr eady interested in a medical career before the UCF visit, but said the demonstr ations made her even more inspired. I want to go to medical school, she said, Im interested in the human body and how it reacts to things. One place where she got to see rsthand practice was at UCFs Skills Simula tion Center. It uses computer iz ed mannequins wired to mimic symptoms r eact to hundreds of pr escr iption drugs and even talk to doctors in training, said W endy S pirduso Sarubbi, director of communications at the college This way, students can learn and make mistakes on the mannequins be fore ever treating a patient, she said. P atients also hear d from college of med icine professors and staff about what to expect fr om in classes, training and rewards, should they choose to go into medicine Sarubbi said Palmer had been gleaning r ewar ds from helping others as part of the Global Health program, whether treating 800 patients in v e days or establishing an electr onic health r ecor d system in the Dominican Republic to help keep tr ack of patients progress between mission trips to the Dominican Republic. His passion shows through when he talks about medicine to prospective future doctors, Sarubbi said. She also said it nev er hurts for students to see a big br other from their community who is pursuing that same car eer with a passion. He kept his Avon Park roots, Sarubbi said. He is adamant about caring for the community. He is the one who will change the world. When he learned he had received his top choice for residency on March 21, Palmer cried as he shared the news with fellow stu dents, their families and faculty members Sarubbi said. He dedicated his success to his gr andfather who had died the day before, because he was going to use tools to x bones and had grown up the grandson of a hardware stor e o wner. He had wanted to stay in Florida for residency training because community and family will always be a str ong draw for him, she said. He also told the Highlands County School Board, when he asked to set up the eld trip, that he eventually hopes to return to practice in Avon Park. As middle-schooler Dalton Whitman said: No matter where you come from, any thing is possible. I t s cool, that even someone from Avon Park can do something big.

BY SAMANTHA GHOLARSamantha GG holarAVON PARK Sharon Longley is bringing up a r eal life question in her new stage production that opens in A v on Park on Saturday. The play entitled I Do, But Do I Really? will take guests into the world of two successful married individuals who dont have it all together in the r elationship life Ther e are two professionals who are marr ied. They re doing really superb in cor porate America but at home their liv es ar e not so successful, said Longley, the producer, writer and owner of Lighthouse E nter tainment Group. The play is lled with what Longley lls society needs most of to day. E verything I write is full of forgiveness and healing. I base my stories on that because you really cant hav e the second without the rst and ther e needs to be a lot mor e forgiveness these days, Longley said. Writing since the age of eight, Longleys rst love took a long time to come cen ter stage. For the past 40-something y ears Longley has traveled in her singing career, performing gospel songs and sharing her ministry with people all over the country. For 25 years I wrote music for the gospel music industry. I sort of retired from doing that in September and then I ventured out on my own. Im back to writing, but in a differ ent way, Longley said. The marr iage based play is described as a dramatic comedy with a twist by its producer. The ve-cast pr oduction follo ws the two relationships through a tough mar riage and pulls at the hear t str ings of all audience members. This play isn t just for Christians. Its for the church and the unchurched. Its some thing for everybody. Ther e ar e lessons for married, single, divorced any kind of adult, Longley said. The one night pr oduction will take place S atur day at Faith Temple Ministries 36 East Main St. in Avon Park. Doors open at 6:30 / p .m. and the show starts at 7 / p .m. sharp. Tickets can be pur chased in advance at the F aith Temple Ministries Daycare Center for $10. T ickets are $12 at the door.

Advanced Recovery Systems also owns and operates Recovery Village and Advanced Behavioral Medicine in Umatilla. That unit also deals with eating disorders, prescription pill addiction, alcoholism, detox and drug addiction for teens. When constructed, the new Highlands County property will be a 20-room facility with a local staff. We certainly plan to recruit in Highlands County. There will be about 50 new jobs when we are fully operational, she said. Crews reportedly will be taking the old tea room down at the end of this month, with an of cial groundbreaking for the new building to be held in July. The building currently on the property is known as The Casino, even though it never actually served as a gambling facility. It originally was constructed in 1925 at a cost of $50,000. Among other things it has been the headquarters for the Civilian Conservation Corps, headquarters for a girls camp, a golf course clubhouse and most recently has been the entertainment area for an ef ciency apartment complex.

MUSEUM FROM PAGE A1so his day consisted of daily shing trips until the warning on April 26. Since then, Peggy Bennett has worked to nd a solution, either through the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act or through the Highlands County Commission. County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete, who spoke at Tuesdays meeting, said designating a community as safe for golf carts could work, if residents follow the procedure and if the roads are safe for carts. There is no ling fee, he said, but he needs a majority of affected residents on a petition in favor of it. Then, he needs to study the roads being requested for golf cart use for amount and type of traf c, width of the road, number of driveways, posted speed limit and operational speed how fast cars are actually going. He also looks at whether the road is used for neighborhood or through trafc. Cars moving quickly might not be able to slow down or to pass a golf cart safely, he said. Schrader, a 20-year Avon Park Lakes resident, said golf carts arent registered or insured and pose a liability to their owners if involved in a wreck, especially on a busy road. I dont think anyone wants to look for access onto U.S. 27, said resident Steve Lare. This all started because one young man wants to sh. Yall want to get on one man. Willie and Elaine Chapple said most people know the rules of the road and will accommodate others. If Im on a cart, Ill get off to the side, Willie Chapple said. Elaine Chapple said their three children, ages 11, 7 and 5, love getting out on a golf cart. Roland Lee, a 19year resident and lone opponent in the crowd, said he taught safe driving to senior citizens for years and has concerns for children on carts. There are too many kids riding golf carts now, with no adult on there, Lee said. Schrader said his stepson has been ticketed for riding a golf cart on a road, and he once gave a verbal warning to his now-grown daughters when he caught them out on one. I told them, If I enforce it, you cant do it, Schrader said. He also said the Sheriffs Of ce should have enforced the law more strictly before people believed it was OK to ride golf carts on roads. Were well aware that its illegal, said board member Tom Singletary. How do we make it legal? Both Singletary and Peggy Bennett said an 82-year-old resident cannot drive and was using a golf cart, until recently, to go to Walmart for groceries. She needs a safe way to drive, Singletary said. Bennett said she would ask residents if they would support allowing golf carts on 35-mph or slower roads, not feeder roads like Stryker Road, Olivia Drive or Highlands Boulevard. She also believes ADA requirements should give Brandon some leeway. Gavarrete said ADA requires the county to provide pedestrian access to facilities, such as parks, restrooms and gazebos. Golf carts are acceptable access vehicles under ADA, he said. They have to be safe for the road and the road has to be safe for them. County Commissioner Don Elwell, substituting for District 1 Commissioner James L. Brooks, advised residents to get a petition to Gavarrete as soon as they have 50 percent for that area, but keep gathering signatures. Residents asked how long a petition would take to get to the county commission, and Gavarrete said one to three months, including two weeks to get the resolution on the agenda. Of the ve communities that currently have the golf cart designation, the largest one only has 15 roads in it, Gavarrete said. County commissioners required the latest one, Lake Istokpoga Shores, to purchase its own golf cart community warning signs: Approximately $100-$125 each, installed. Elwell said Avon Park Lakes would need dozens of signs. Residents also asked why golf carts have been allowed in Sun N Lake Improvement District, but Gavarrete said that community is run by its Board of Governors, which designated part of the district safe for golf carts.

Immediately, Bill felt the tell-tale tap and set the hook on a 2 pound largemouth bass. Other anglers were still running to their spots when Dance hooked and landed what was probably the rst bass ever caught in a B.A.S.S. event. Many, many more would follow. Bass shing has changed dramatically since that day. Boats, motors and electronics, as well as rods, reels and line have made huge gains, but the basic plastic worm remains essen tially the same, and it continues to catch sh. The lur e that had the biggest impact on bass shing started in the late 1940s in a basement in Akron, Ohio. N ick and C osma Crme cooked up the perfect combination of vinyl, oil and pigments to produce a molded wor m that not only looked and felt soft and alive, but also stayed that way when exposed to air over time 1949 became the ofcial birth year of the Crme worm. By 1951 the Crme Wiggle Worm was sold by mail for $1 for a pack of ve. Later that year, at the Cleveland Sports man Show, a distributor sold 9,600 packs to cur ious anglers in just a few days. Demand soared and the Crmes moved out of their kitchen into a small manufactur ing plant in Akron, but they still had tr ouble meeting orders as demand for their product continued to gr o w.

SEE STARS | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comFormer Red Devil standout Reggie Baker has completed the rst part of his journey, and through his hard work and persever ence, has given himself plenty of options for the next. After completing his stellar high school car eer on the basketball court in 2012, Bak er selected Potomac S tate C ollege in West Virginia as his next stop, an NJCAA Division II school. Along with av er aging 18.6 points per game as a fr eshman for the Catamounts, Baker made sure to take care of business in the classroom as well, maintaining a 3.6 grade point average his rst year. Those numbers only improved in his sec ond, and nal, season with Potomac In helping the team to a 21-10 record and reaching the NJCAA Tournament, Baker averaged 24.3 points per game on 47-per cent shooting, 82-percent from the line, to go Baker making his own way Courtesy photoAvon Park grad Reggie Baker nished in the top 10 of NJCAA scorers this past season at Potomac State College, averaging 24.3 points per game. SEE BAK EE R | A12 TIM RE YY NOLDSAP Basketball WriterMIAMI A game, a series, a season, they all would hinge on one shot. That is, if the shot was taken. Ray Allen and LeBron James would have none of that. They swar med Brooklyn sharpshooter Joe Johnson and knocked the ball away twice actually in the nal moments, and the Miami H eat r eached the Eastern Conference nals for the four th consecutiv e year by rallying past the N ets 96-94 on Wednesday night. Miami led for only 32 seconds after halftime the nal 32 seconds. Its always been like that for us, James said. Its never easy. Its nev er easy for us. S ur e looks easy. It was the 10th straight series win for the two-time defending NBA champions. J ames scor ed 29 points, Dwyane Wade added 28 and Allen hit the 3-pointer that gave Miami its rst and only lead since the second quarter. The Heat won the series 4-1, a far cry from the 4-0 edge B r ooklyn had in the regular-season matchups between the clubs Give the Heat credit, Nets coach Jason K idd said. They were attacking there in the fourth quarter. We were attacking. Both teams were attacking. They made plays, they made shots and we didnt. For much of the night, Brooklyn was making enough plays. The Nets led by 10 points in the third quarter and got a virtu oso performance from J ohnson, a game-high 34 points on 15 for 23 shooting. He just never got that 24th shot off.

Nick decided to move the factory to Tyler, Texas. Once established, they became a lead er in the shing tackle industr y nationwide Crme began working with many avid bass anglers who came up with many product innovations and rigging techniques. N ick C rme died in 1984 and owner ship of his company passed to his three childr en. H is son, Mike Crme took over the management reins. Knight M anufactur ing mer ged with the company shor tly after Nicks death and con tinues the business of dev eloping plastics to this day. For many anglers, shing with plastic worms is a way of life. I can still remember the rst time I tied on one of Nick Crmes worms. It was 1967 and I had skipped school for the day, opting to take advantage of the small boat we kept at Mogadore Reservoir. There were no elec tric motors in those days so I r o wed out to a small bay where Id caught a number of bass on previous trips, checked over the worm one last time and cast it out into the crystal clear water. Standing up in the old boat, I could see bass coming from ev ery direction in the lake to str ike the worm. Im not sure if theyd ever seen a plastic worm before and I was just in awe. I dont remem ber how many bass I caught that day but the sight of that plastic wor m hitting the water will be with me to my dying day For many anglers, the plastic worm and its many variations has become the goto bait for almost ev ery situation. U nlike many other types of bait, the wor m can be shed effectively at all depths of the water column, as well as on the surface. Flukes, craws, liz ards, grubs, pork chunks tube baits and swimbaits can all trace their lineage back to the basic plastic worm. A ccor ding to the United States Patent and Trademark ofce, the rst plastic worm style bait was patented in 1877. This or iginal wor m was made from pure rubber, but when left in the open air, it would stiffen up and become hard. It was to become merely a footnote in shing history, and it took another 70+ years for someone to combine the right amount of plastic to make a rubber worm that didnt stiffen up. Thank you Nick Crme. In the years follow ing Nicks creation, scents w er e added, as well as garlic and salt and the small number of available colors soon r eached unbeliev able numbers. T oday most plastic bait manufacturers offer do z ens of variations, in numerous siz es and mor e color patterns than in the rainbow. Texas Smoke, Houdini, Watermelon, Pumpkin, Florida 5 O and Toho Gold are just a few of the many new color names. But regardless of the size, shape or col or, plastic baits catch bass I doubt that bass shing would be what it is today without them. REDS Friday Bass Tournament on Istok poga Last F r iday, we held our weekly tournament on Lake Istokpoga, starting around 6:45 / a.m. and ending at 1 / p .m.

His scoring average was ninth in the nation among junior college players. In recognition of the outstanding year, Bak er won the regional tour nament MVP and was named rst team All-American. The strong work continued in the classroom as well, keeping his GP A o ver 3. The combination of great play and grades resulted in the biggest payoff for Baker scholarship oppor tunities to continue his playing car eer and education. After the national tournament, I had 20 offers from (NCAA) Division I and II schools, he said. Three offers are in Florida Bethune-Cookman, FAMU and F lagler but also from schools all over the place. From there, Baker ticked off a list of states from which colleges have expressed inter est, from Pennsylvania to O klahoma, O hio, Indiana, Tennessee, West V ir gina, New York and the Carolinas. Im taking my time and making visits to see where is the best t for me, he said. To continue to have the chance to play and get a college ed ucation is what matters most, and now I get to choose whatev er school I want to go to. Baker knows he was blessed with the ability, but has taken it upon himself to make the best of that ability through his hard work and ceaseless determination to enhance his oppor tunities Thus far he has visited Bethune-Cookman, King University in B ristol, Tennessee, Newman University in Wichita, Kansas and Southeastern Oklahoma State University, more more to follow befor e he makes up his mind as to where his journey continues. And he realizes what has given him this chance. I thank God for all my blessings, Baker said.

BAKER FRO mM paPA GE A9 1.8 seconds left. Johnson grabbed the ball but James knocked it away as time ran out. Obviously, we thought this was a game we should have won, Johnson said. Chris Bosh scored 16 and Allen nished with 13 for Miami, which is in the East nals for the sixth time since 2005. Paul Pierce scored 19 and Deron Williams had 17 for the Nets, who led by eight with 4:49 remaining and didnt score again un til the nal moments, after the H eat put together a 12-0 r un that decided ev er ything. Sometimes things have to go perfectly when you play the best team in the NBA, Pierce said. Eventually, Miami broke through. And Heat coach Erik Spoelstra kept telling his team it would hap pen. Y ou guys are built for this, he said in one stoppage. With the Heat down by one in the nal minute, James passed to M ar io Chalmers, thinking he would take a potentially go-ahead shot. Instead, Chalmers saw Shaun Livingston help off Allen and come his way S o Chalmers passed to a suddenly open Allen, who hit a 3-pointer and the Heat wouldnt trail again. Brooklyn led 49-42 at halftime, with Miami 1-for-16 from 3-point range. The Nets closed the half on an 8-0 run and the lone bright spot for Miami was Wade, who had 20 points on 7-for12 shooting. Hes a playoff war rior, Spoelstra said. S o was J ohnson, who made tough shot after tough shot, even while defended by James. When Johnson hit a contested jumper with 4:49 left, it was 91-83 and the Nets seemed on the brink of victory. Then Miami scored the next 12 points, and that was enough. Barely, but enough. It was just about getting stops, Wade said. We knew offen sively that we needed to execute, but we knew w e w erent going to win the game unless we got some stops. For the Nets, more than $180 million in salary and luxury tax was supposed to bring a championship. Instead, billion aire owner Mikhail P r okhorov got only a trip to the second round as his return on a massive investment. Some big decisions mainly regarding the futures of Pierce and Kevin Garnett are looming. Pierce will be a free agent; Garnett has a year left on his deal, though its been spec ulated he will consider r etir ement. Garnett left without comment.

LIVING BFriday, May 16, 2014 BY SHARON THOMPSONMcClatchy NewspapersTomatoes, squash, corn, peaches the summer is full of yumminess. But what to do with all these tasty fruits and vegetables? Check out our guide to selecting, storing and preparing your summer harvest.Many of us wait all year for tomato season, when we can buy homegrown tomatoes from local farmers or pick them from our gardens and enjoy the smell and juiciness of a real tomato. Even though most any freshly picked tomato tastes wonderful, many consumers want heirloom tomatoes because of the avor and texture that rarely can be found in modern tomatoes. Heirloom or homegrown, here are tips on how to select and store fresh tomatoes: A ripe tomato will be vibrant in color, plump and rm, and have just a little give. Sniff it if you can; if its missing that sweet, woody smell, leave it behind. Always look for tomatoes and grape tomatoes that are free of wrinkles, a sign of age. Keep tomatoes unwashed and at room temperature; putting them in the refrigerator can turn the esh mealy. For maximum air circulation, remove them from plastic bags. To help speed ripening, put them in a paper bag with an apple, which emits ethylene gas, a ripening agent. Once ripe, tomatoes will last up to three days. For the smoothest slicing, use a serrated knife, which will cut through a tomatos skin without bruising the esh. To remove the core, use a paring knife to cut around it at an angle. Real Simple magazineBack yard gardeners who grow zucchini and yellow summer squash often have more than they can possibly eat. The proli c summer squashes can be used in so many different dishes, that its a shame to think about giving the extras away. But neighbors will appreciate your generosity. If you buy zucchini a type of summer squash or yellow squash at the farmers market, choose small (about 6 to 8 inches long) and tender ones because both skin and seeds are eaten. The peel is antioxidant-rich. To store fresh summer squash, place it unwashed in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. Wash the squash just before preparation. The storage life of summer squash is brief, so use it within two to three days. Summer squashes have a mild avor and pair well with a variety of herbs and seasonings. Because they are so versatile, freeze as many as possible to use during the winter. To freeze zucchini and summer squash for use in soups and casseroles, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place in boiling water for 2 minutes, remove and plunge in ice water to stop the cooking. Drain well and pat dry between layers of paper towels. Place in freezer bags, label and freeze. If you want to make zucchini muf ns and quick breads, shred the zucchini rst. Make sure the zucchini is blemish-free and rinse it well under cold water. Do not peel. Once shredded, portion out the zucchini in the amounts you need for your recipes. Place it in freezer bags, squeezing all the air out and pressing the bags at. Label and date. Sliced or shredded zucchini keeps about 10 months in the freezer. Before using shredded zucchini in mufns or quick breads (most bakers prefer zucchini), thaw it and pat it dry between several layers of paper towel on a dish. Let stand about 10 minutes and press down again, squeezing out as much moisture as you can. Shredded zucchini also is great for making pancakes, and zucchini and summer squash are great for tossing with hot pasta. According to Cooks Illustrated, you can seed larger zucchini and summer squash by rolling the vegetable and applying slight pressure with the palms of your hands to soften the insides and loosen the seeds. Then halve the vegetable lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a spoon. Ask any farmer or back yard gardener about fresh corn and theyll tell you the best way to cook it. Put a pot of water on to boil before you run out to the garden, pick the corn, shuck it on the way back to the house, and plunge it into the boiling water. Since most of us dont have back-yard crops, we must buy corn at the farmers market or grocery store. Well take it anywhere we can get it. Here are some suggestions on how to select, store and prepare fresh corn: Look for ears with green husks, moist stems and silk ends that are free of decay. Kernels should be small, tender, plump and milky when pierced, and they should ll up all the spaces in the rows. Keep unshucked fresh corn in the refrigerator until ready to use, wrapped in damp paper towels and placed in a plastic bag. Typical shelf life is 4 to 6 days. To steam: Remove husks and silks. Trim stem ends. Stand ears in a tall pot with 1 inch of water. Cover with a tighttting lid and steam for 5 minutes. To microwave: Place ears of corn, still in husks, in a single layer in the microwave. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, turning the ears halfway through cooking time. Allow corn to rest several minutes before removing the husks and silks. To boil: Remove husks and silks. Trim stem ends. Carefully place ears in large pot of boiling water. Cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until the kernels are tender. To grill: Peel away the outer layers of husk. If the ears have many layers, peel off the rst few, leaving a few layers for protection but allowing the kernels to caramelize a little. Put the corn on the grill as soon as the initial ames from the charcoal die down and the coals are still red hot. Grill the corn, turning often, until the rst layer of husk is charred completely. Depending on your re, this could take 5 to 10 minutes. Just before serving, peel back the husk and brown the kernels on the grill, turning the corn frequently. To remove the corn from its husk, cut the stem end up to the bottom of the ear and peel back the husks and silk. From the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service A basket of just-picked peaches will yield some of our most favorite summer treats: ice cream, pies, cobblers, shortcakes, smoothies, muf ns and preserves. Sure, we can buy them ready-made, but the joy comes from peeling, pitting and slicing and turning the glorious fruit into something even more spectacular. Peaches should be soft to the touch but not mushy. Look for a well-de ned crease that runs from the stem to the point. Dont squeeze peaches; they bruise easily. Place rm peaches on the counter for a day or two, and theyll ripen. Promptly refrigerate ripe peaches and eat them within a week of purchase. To keep sliced peaches from darkening, add lemon juice or ascorbic acid. Three medium peaches will yield 1 pound, or 2 cups, of sliced peaches or 1 cups of pure. As a general rule, avoid bruising peaches in the picking or preparation processes. The peaches should be ripe yet rm. Very soft peaches will not cook or freeze well. To peel easily: Submerge in boiling water, immediately plunge peaches into cold water. The skin should come off in large peels. If peaches are slightly underripe, allow them to remain in the hot water a little longer to loosen the peel.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, May 16, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: When my husband and I go to visit my mother (in another city) every other month or so, my brother and his wife insist on coming over to see us while were there. Our visits usually last two or three days. Many times when they come over, my sister-in-law will start doing her exercise routine, including oor exercises, which are, in my husbands and my opinion, unbecoming and inappropriate to do in front of other people. How do we deal with this? Are we crazy to feel awkward when shes lying on her back doing these pelvic thrusts? Would it be out of line to ask her NOT to do this in the future? My brother says, She wont listen to me, so it wouldnt do any good to talk to her, so we know talking to her wont help. What do you suggest? FEELING AWKWARDDEAR FEELING AWKWARD: Heres how Id handle it. Talk to her anyway, and ask her to please refrain from doing these exercises in your presence because it makes you uncomfortable. But if that doesnt work and she starts performing, stand up and say, Hey, folks. Lets go out for a walk (or coffee, or a sandwich), and put an end to her bid for attention that way. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend will have scheduled sex with me only after he has had his shower in the evening or in the morning. Every once in a while I get lucky and am able to stop by after work and have a quickie. Its driving me crazy. I have tried many ways to get him to have sex spontaneously, but he wont budge. Its starting to be a turnoff because its not the right time. What do I do? LOOSER THAN THAT IN DETROITDEAR LOOSER: Your boyfriend may have a touch of OCD, or need to feel in control when he has sex. In other words, if the encounter is not his idea and at the time he chooses, he doesnt get turned on. Theres help for him if hes willing to admit there may be a problem. But if he isnt, then nd yourself another fella because nothing is likely to change.Exercise detracts from visits with relatives DEAR ABBY JESSICA HERNDONAP Film WriterNo one can blame Gareth Edwards for admittedly feeling nervous when asked to helm a remake of the biggest monster movie of all time. Sure, the only other lm he had directed happened to be 2010s Monsters. But this time, it was Godzilla. Well, the latest iteration of the 60-year-old franchise is in capable hands. Edwards Godzilla is a well-paced 3-D spectacle that pays chilling homage to the artful legacy of the original 1954 lm Ishiro Hondas Gojira while emerging as its own prodigious monster movie. Created as a symbol of the nuclear threat following Americas atomic attacks on Japan in World War II, Godzillas reappearance suggests the nuclear tests conducted by the U.S. in the Paci c after the war were really meant to hold the radioactive dinosaur back. This story begins in Japan in 1999 as nuclear physicist Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston, edgy in an unbearable wig) investigates questionable seismic activity at a nuclear power plant on the coast of India. When a team at the plant, including his scientist wife, Sandra (an underused Juliette Binoche), die in what everyone believes is a natural disaster, Joe dedicates his life to proving that what caused the devastation was anything but natural. His obsession creates a rift between himself and his son, Ford. Fifteen years later, we catch up with Ford (played by a placid but sexy Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in San Francisco, where he lives with his wife (Elizabeth Olsen) and their son. Serving in the U.S. Navy, Ford disarms bombs, a skill that later helps him save the planet from MUTOs Massive Unidentied Terrestrial Organism that emerge from a long dormancy and begin traveling the globe, feeding on radiation. Screenwriter Max Borenstein, working from a story by Dave Callaham, doesnt bombard us with multiple narratives or a multitude of characters (Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins play scientists, and David Strathairn plays an Admiral). Instead, the lm focuses on Fords family story, which Borenstein takes his time developing. When we nally see Godzilla just shy of an hour into the lm the anticipation has built to such a degree that we expect to be awestruck. And we are. The tallest of any Godzillas before him, this one stands 355 feet high about 30 stories with glistening, scaly skin and dorsal n spikes down his back. His terrifying yet textured roar shakes the theater. Aiming for a realistic take on how we might react to an invasion by giant creatures, Edwards makes sure our view of them rarely shifts from the human perspective. Honoring the eerie music of the original, this lms score by Alexandre Desplat (Argo) is equally menacing, rich with horns that complement the consistently serious tone of the movie. In the original lm, made using stop-motion photography, an actor stomped around a miniature Tokyo in a latex suit. But in the hands of visual effects guru Jim Rygiel (The Lord of the Rings franchise), the contemporary take looks incredibly uid and Godzillas movements appear far more natural. But were not bombarded with excessive CGI here. Godzilla isnt oversold, although for some, his lack of screen time wont be satisfying enough. However, the balance between the family-focused story line and intense action sequences is bound to please others. A threat to the planet in the s version, Godzilla isnt out to take the world down this time. Hes here to be its hero and his massive showdown ery radioactive breath and all against the MUTOs is the highlight. While the predictable sequel has not yet been con rmed, one thing is clear: Edwards version of Godzilla remains the ultimate monster movie. The legacy has been upheld. Godzilla, a Warner Bros. release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for intense sequences of destruction, mayhem and creature violence. Running time: 123 minutes. Three stars out of four.Gareth Edwards Godzilla reboot is chilling Upholding the lizard legacyMCT MOVIE REVIEW CRITICS RATING: PUZZLE CORNERSolution on B6

Do you have poor memory? Are you overweight and losing hair? You are probably wondering why I ask such personal questions. Ive been your Dear Pharmacist for 15 years so Ill tell you like it is: All of those symptoms could be connected to one thing, low thyroid hormone levels in the body. Its worth testing for, but the problem is that conventional tests miss a lot of thyroid disorders. Youre told Its normal when you feel terrible. If overlooked, youll be on the medication merry-go-round, and you better hold on. Medications and vitamins can support your thyroid gland, but it has to rst be detected. Over the past year, Ive been involved in a special project, my best professional accomplishment. Ive been working closely with my friend and thyroid expert, Dr. David Brownstein. Together we have created an online experience called a summit that will enable anyone from around the world to listen to, and watch a slide presentation from home. Its free and to sign up you just go to TheThyroidSummit. com and save your seat. We begin broadcasting various presentations on June 2 for seven life-changing days. People have asked me why I am hosting the thyroid summit. I had a mild case about 10 years ago, that went undiagnosed for about two years, and I gured it out myself. I put a picture of myself for you to see in my book, Thyroid Healthy which is out now. Its not the most attering picture because I had 15 pounds on me, but Im proud of myself now, because I am 49 years old, only 110 pounds and have perfect thyroid, and Im on a mission to help others. Weve interviewed 32 health care experts. Among the greats, you will hear from Dr. Mercola, Mike Adams founder of Natural News, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, Dr. Jonathan Wright, Dr. Kent Holtorf, actress and thyroid thriver Gena Lee Nolin, Dr. Tom OBryan, celebrity nutritionist JJ Virgin, Activist Mary Shomon and many others. Dr. Brownstein and myself are also in the line up. If youre not aware of a thyroid problem, you could develop psychological, cardiovascular and neurological disorders. At the thyroid summit, you will learn: How anxiety, bipolar, mood swings and depression are tied to thyroid How certain medications can induce thyroid disease Why a diagnosis of chronic fatigue and bromyalgia are often given to thyroid patients What lab tests actually uncover it What natural remedies work to relieve symptoms Which medications and supplements help, and which harm How to help your dog or cat with thyroid disease Im so proud of this project and the goodness that will come from it. The thyroid summit will help you rediscover health and educate yourself well enough to speak to your medical professionals (and be taken seriously).

This information is not intended to treat, diag-The Thyroid Summit DEAR PHARMACISTSuzy Cohen Osteoporosis, falls, arthritis pain and loss of mobility are just some of the challenges facing us as we age. To celebrate May as Recognizing Older Americans Month, The National Council on Aging is emphasizing preventing falls. Falls are not an inevitable outcome of aging, but some of the causes are more frequent in the elderly. Medications such as pain and sleeping meds can make anyone more wobbly. Older people often metabolize these more slowly causing an increase in sleepiness. Some blood pressure medicines make people light headed if they go from lying down to standing too quickly. Since older people get up more frequently during the night, especially for bathroom breaks, they are more at risk. Going from lying down to sitting for a few minutes then standing will help you get your bearings and decrease your risk of falls. Discuss medicines that make you wobbly with your doctor as there may be a smaller effective dose or an alternative medicine. Strengthening your muscles with regular exercise such as walking, pool exercises or Tai Chi (think people moving very slowly through an exercise regimen) can help without causing problems with your joints. Tai Chi is also very helpful for increasing joint mobility and improving balance. Medicare has recognized the expense of falls, especially broken hips, and with a doctors prescription will pay for a balance program. The physical therapist evaluates the patient for specific weaknesses such as poor walking habits or weak muscles and then works with the patient to improve. Canes and walkers can make your more independent as they will allow you to walk better without fear of falling. I used to joke with patients that canes were also good for muggers until I read about an older lady who saw another older woman being mugged. She said it made her so mad she hit the mugger knocking him out before she thought of the potential danger. Staying home will not keep you out of trouble as 50 percent of falls happen at home. Not rushing, wearing good, no-skid shoes and getting your eyes checked so that you can see potential tripping obstructions will help. May is also National Osteoporosis month. The next column will give you information on strengthening your bones so that if you do fall you can lessen your chances of breaking a major bone.Dr. Diana D.

Enrichment Centre to host The Fab Three in concert BASSAURE TIMMERMAN RR AY The true story is told of a passenger who was ying from San Francisco to Los Angeles. By the time the airplane took off, there had already been a 45-minute de lay, and most every one on board was getting a bit upset. Then, the plane stopped un expectedly in Sacramento on the way to its nal destination. The primary ight at tendant explained that ther e would be anoth er 45-minute delay, and if any one wanted to get off the aircraft, they would all reboard in about 30 minutes. Everybody got off of the plane, except one blind gentleman. The passenger no ticed the blind man as he walked b y and could tell he had own before, because his seeing-eye dog had lain quietly under neath the seats in fr ont of him through out the entire ight. The passenger could also tell the blind man had own this very ight before, because the pilot approached him and, calling him by name, said, Keith, were in Sacramen to for almost an hour. W ould you like to get off and stretch your legs? Keith replied, No, thanks, but may be my dog would like to str etch his legs. Now I want you to picture the follow ing: All the people in the gate ar ea came to an absolute stand still when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with the seeing-eye dog. To add to the problem, the pilot was wearing dark sunglasses. Peo ple scattered! They not only tr ied to change planes, but they also tried to change air lines! That stor y reminds me of a basic, bibli cal teaching. When a person boar ds an air plane, he relies on the pilot to get him wher e he is going. When a blind person uses a seeing-eye dog, he relies on the animal to get him wher e he is going. The same is true of our spiritual jour ney. If a person wants to go to H eaven, then on whom must he rely to get him where he wants to go? He must rely on the Lord. Jeremiah 10:23 reads, I know, O LORD, that a mans way is not in him self, nor is it in a man who walks to dir ect his steps. The Old Testament prophet, Jeremiah, was simply stating a truth that is true for all peo ple everywhere. Any one seeking eternal life must allow the Lord to show him the way, because no one will ever get there on his or her own. Spiritually speaking, who is your pilot? Who leads your way? Who directs your steps?

www.newssun.comFriday, May 16, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | B7 Tropical Harbor EstatesBy Arlene CloustonLAKE PLACID A memorial for Don and Evelyn Guiney was held Sunday, May 4. It was well attended by family and friends. Don and Evelyn were very active in the park in their earli er days. Evelyn still r emained very ac tive in Nu-Hope. The follo wing members of their family were here: daughter Janet (Brad) Marman of Orlando; grandchil dren Bill (Jamie) from Orlando Carrie and ance Adam Vrvance from Naples, and Kyle Marman from Orlando; and her great-granddaugh ter, Mikayla Guiney fr om Orlando. Other out-of-town guests were: John Marman from Naples, Jim and Carole Grey from Dayton, Ohio, and Frank and Robin Anseaume and son, Dylan, from Orlando. Janet and Brad talk ed about her parents liv es. Close friends told fond memories of them. This memory session was followed with coffee and cake. It really is good to be able to walk over to the clubhouse the rst Saturday of each month for the mens pancake breakfast. Fifty-nine people en joyed the breakfast. As y ou can tell, the snow birds have left so the number of people has dwindled. Monday morning coffee on May 5 was made and hosted by Duane and Joy Dean. Peggy Sue Teague was the emcee. After sev eral jokes she called on C arol Noel for the illness report: Myrna Peters, Richard Gingrich, Bev Smith, and Darwin Seymour. Please remember to sign the greeting card for these people as it means so much to them. Peggy Sue also read the birthday and anniversary names for the week but only Jan and Suzie Trach were present. Marilyn Cromer played the piano and we sang Happy Anniversary to them. Though it is late in the season we wel come new residents of those buying in the park like James and Carole Gray from Ohio will live at 216 Bedford Street; Dennis and Susanne Berry from Missouri will live at 59 Belle Tower Ave.; Delbert and Carolyn Fye from Iowa will live at 13 Austin Drive; Larry and Chris House from Flushing, Michigan, will live at 100 Beauchamp Street; Audrey Lenards from Michigan will live at 326 Belle Field Ave.; Robert and Marilynne Snider from Ontario, Canada, to 130 Beauchamp Street; and Vernie Strouth from Virginia to 105 Bearwoods Ave. Joan Rau and Marilyn Cromer were at a table selling tick ets Monday morning for the M others Day dinner Sunday. The pool exercisers were switched to the small er of the two pools as the r esurfacing has started in the big pool. We will continue to exercise there until the pool is completed. If we can put up with the irritation of the love bugs while were exercising. The last HOA meet ing was held May 5. I t will start up next October. Vice pres ident Tom Hoover called the meeting to order as president Louis Wackershauser has gone back to Wisconsin. A de tailed discussion on the H urricane and Neighborhood Watch was held. The Tuesday morn ings coffee was made b y Mary Sue Willeke. Wilma Miller baked tasty little cupcakes for us to enjoy. Our guest was Maggie Bridgford from Virginia that lives at 120 Bearwoods Ave. and we were happy to have her present. Dee Ziegler suggested that we give a hand of ap plause in appreciation to J oan Rau for head ing all the dinners that ar e put on in our clubhouse. We sang Happy Anniversary to Judy (Gary) Price. The pool party takes place every week on Thursday at 4:30 / p.m. Come prepared to swim, bring a snack and a drink and meet on the screen porch of the clubhouse. Other dates com ing up are: Ladies L unch Out on May 20 at the Red Lobster at 11:30 / a.m. with Shari Kendall hosting. The Mustangs are going to the Placid Lakes Country Club for their lunch out. May 26 is the Memorial Picnic and May 29 is the day to clean the stor age room starting at 9 / a.m. The men went out for their monthly early Tuesday morning breakfast at the Truck Stop on May 6. Ten men made it to the breakfast, and thanks to the drivers that pick up the men. The Nu-Hope Free Movie on May 25 will be Last Vegas. Three 60-something friends take a break from their day to day lives to throw a bach elor party. Michael Douglas Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline are just four of the many actors and actresses in this movie. The movie starts at 3 / p.m. but the Nu-Hope ladies serve cake and coffee at 2:30 / p.m., so come and enjoy. We do ap preciate a donation to the N u-Hope Elder Care Services in this area.
