Randy LaBelle, on administrative leave almost two months during a Highlands County Sheriffs Of ce internal investigation, may return to work after training on being a better manager. Sheriff Susan Benton said Monday she has ordered LaBelle suspended three days without pay, placed on one year of probation, to report to work at the downtown ofce not Liberty Star on George Boulevard and complete approximately ve full days of remedial training on policies, ethics and staff management on his own time at his own expense. She said that would hopefully include some level of anger management training. He let the anger get the best of him, Benton said. Benton also said LaBelle wont return to his supervisory role over the Criminal Investigations Unit until he has worked on specific projects ordered directly by her and Chief Deputy Mark Schrader, and passed monthly reviews by Maj. David Paeplow, his boss. I dont take this lightly, Benton said Monday while presenting her recommendation to the press. We will lose trust with the public if we treat people like jerks.

Monday night, the Avon Park Lakes Homeowners Association Board of Governors agreed to a general set of rules for golf cart users in the community and to submit those rules to County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete as part of a proposal to have Avon Park Lakes be designated for golf carts. Board chairman Ray Schultz had called the meeting Monday to discuss a more speci c set of rules, such as: Requiring all carts to have a rearview mirror and good brakes, steering and tires. Limiting such carts to daylight driving unless specially out tted. Requiring windshields, turn signals, headlights and brake lights for night driving. Restricting golf carts to roads with speed limits of 35 mph or less.AP Lakes board gets behind golf carts BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING It took them two tries to pass it, but a short-handed Highlands County commission Tuesday morning gave their approval to what was termed a clean up of language in the current county statutes regulating emergency medical services. Following a negative vote, Commissioners Don Elwell, Jack Richie and Chairman Greg Harris reversed themselves after receiving assurances from county staff that the larger issue of public ambulance service and private medical transportation would be addressed at an upcoming meeting. Commissioner Ron Handley was not present. As presented, the EMS ordinance dealt with the countys regulations on basic and advanced life support care and transportation as well as non-emergency transportation. Among other things, it addressed de nitions used in the measure and looked at insurance requirements for local providers. The measure also lays the groundwork for dual employment, meaning county EMS workers ultimately would be able to work for Katara Simmons/News-SunHighlands County commission Tuesday morning gave their approval to what was termed a clean up of language in the current county statutes regulating emergency medical services.

The typically busy road was closed from Lakeview Street to Heartland Boulevard. A dozen or so orange crate racers were made available for the young participants to steer down the hill. Most of the gravity racers were originally made by Lake Placid Boy Scouts. The troop is now in hiatus and the cars spend most of their time in storage. At least one of the race cars Saturday was from the glory days of an Orange Crate Derby series that was a staple at Lake Placid Middle School a generation ago. Two cars at a time raced north down the hill, beginning in front of Lake Placid Montes sori Academy. The nish line was at the bottom of the hill just past a slight bend in the road. The eld consisted of experienced drivers and a few rookies. D r ivers could take as many runs as they wanted while the event lasted. Even some adults got into maybe onto would be a better description a rac er to take a trip down the hill. The r ace cars w ere hauled by trailer four at a time back to the top of the hill following their rapid downhill sprint. A change of drivers and the scene would play out again, usually with children running behind the race cars, trying to keep up.

Flowers owns a tree carving and sculpting service known as M ountain D an Art. After talking to the homeowners, the plans were made, and the project to create a new work of art was under way. This specic tr ee will take several phases to complete. In the end, it will portray the Indian folk story of Kaw-liga. The top part of the tr ee which Flowers is currently carving, will portray the wooden Indian Chief. The middle piece will r epresent the female Indian character fr om the stor y., which was made famous in a country song. The sculpture will be completed several months from now with the intent to portray the Indian folk story as a whole. The home owners moved to this location in April and Flowers to began work May 15. He expects to n ish the rst section this Thursday or F r iday. I would say that this is the second largest tree I have sculpted in Florida, said Flowers, noting that he and his grandfather have done previous work within and outside the state. Flowers continued on with the business, wanting to keep it in the family, after his grandfather retired. Interestingly, Flow ers said that he has no dr awing ar tistic ability whatsoever. If he has a picture or a vision in front of him, however, he can sculpt and carve it. Flowers currently has an apprentice wor king with him on his project, Jay Mor row, who he says has the ability to both dr aw and sculpt and who is also a fast and creative learner. An added asset to this project is the re cording of this work. J ake M cEuen is a nearby resident who stumbled upon this project in passing and offered his videography services to capture Flowers current sculpting pr oject. M cEuen, who is a two-year resident of Sebring, owns the American Outdoor Vid eo and Film Productions and is a board member of non-pr ofit or ganization called H unt Of A Lifetime Flowers and McEuen have been keeping each other company and have worked w ell together thr ough this project, both joking and smiling as they discussed their individual tasks. F lo wers joked that after being on the sculpting site anyone else you might come in contact with would know where you had been due to the large amount of sawdust the project had produced.

www.newssun.comWednesday, May 21, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | A5 Dont forget the true meaning of holidayFor many Americans, Memorial Day means the rst day of summer, boating, beaches and barbecues; but sadly, for many of us, the true meaning of this day has been lost, ignored or just for gotten. M emorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of r emembr ance for those who have died while serving in our nations armed forces. The holiday was ofcially proclaimed in 1868 to honor U nion and C onfederate soldiers, but following World War I, it was expanded to honor those servicemen and women who hav e died in all of our wars In 1971, The National Holiday Act declared Memorial Day a federal holiday to be celebrated on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day used to be a solemn day of mour ning, a sacr ed day of remembrance to honor those who paid the ultimate price to guarantee our freedoms. But unfortunately by making Memorial Day part of a thr ee-day w eekend it may have contributed to the original meaning and spir it of M emorial Day being lost on many of us. In 2000, Congress passed the National Moment of Remembrance Act.

The F lor ida Department of Health has conrmed three cases of chikun gunya fever, one each in Broward, Hillsborough, and Miami-Dade counties. The fev er which is caused by a virus that originated in Central and East Af rica, is now found in 40 countries. For tunately, it is rarely fatal and runs its course in about two or three days. In that time, however, it causes a high fe ver, joint pain and swelling, headache, muscle pain, nausea and fatigue A c cording to the Center for Disease Con trol, symptoms typically appear four to sev en days after being bitten. Ther e is no prevention or cure for the virus. The only way to protect yourself is to not get bitten by a mos quito in the rst place. Ther e ar e several basic things peo ple can do in mosquito season wear a r epellent, and when outside w ear loose, long-sleeved shirts and long pants, socks and closed shoes, espe cially at dawn, dusk and night. M ake sur e all house screens are in good repair and t tightly, and dont let water stand in your yard espe cially in discarded tires or containers. T wo things to keep in mind: M os quitoes are attracted to body heat and carbon dio xide they can detect the gas from 75 feet away. Try to stay cool and avoid excessive exercise when outdoors during the mosquitos prime feeding hours. As dangerous as mosquitoes can be, however, we have to admit they are amazing creatures. For example, according to insects. about.com, mosquitoes go courting. Their wings beat 300 to 600 times a second that speed makes their an noying buzzing sound but when a male and a female get together, they synchronize their wing beats to per form a lovers duet. Did y ou know that mosquitoes y at speeds of 1 to 1.5 miles per hour? That bees, locusts and butteries y much faster? That while mosquitoes are slow moving in the insect world, they are relatively long-lived? Adults hav ing the capacity to live for ve or six months That only female mosquitoes draw blood, and males live off plant nectar? That there are over 3,500 spe cies of mosquito? As amazing as the mosquito is and as useful as it is in fattening large mouth bass, its best to remember the insect is a focused predator that has killed more people than any other an imal in the world. And there are tril lions and trillions of them. S o take a minute to take some pre cautions. That annoying little bite could tur n into much mor e if youre unlucky.Like so many others, I have heard the countless tales of how bad the V eter ans Administration hospitals are. So you can imagine the fear I started to realize when the V A doctors told my dad he needed open-heart surgery to replace a severely damaged aortic v alv e. I researched. I asked questions. I reached out to everyone in every way I knew possible. I had messages that were nev er returned and questions that werent answered. All I could do was put my tr ust and faith in God that He would direct us where we needed to go. And He did. Dads surgery was last week and he came home Monday. He feels better and looks better than he has in such a long time. I had an opportuni ty to see rsthand how the staff and sur geons work at James A. Haley VA Hospital in Tampa. Of course, I didnt see as much as my parents did since my time there was limited, but I saw enough to know that my dad was getting the help he needed. The staff was caring and friendly, as well as professional to ward both of my par ents. The staffs experience and success can no longer be questioned b y myself, at least in the eld of cardiology. It made me think of health care in general. I have had reason to see inside the operations of other health facilities. Some were exceptional. Some not so. I think the thing that helps make a facility is the compassion shown by the staff. I have seen some nurses who are simply collecting a pay check, while other nurses truly love their job. They ar e the ones who get to know the patient, nd ways to make their stay more comfortable, and do everything they can to treat the patient with care and compas sion. The same can be said about the doctors It warms my heart to hear a nurse say to a patient that they will do ev erything they can to get back on the same set of patients on their next shift, just so they can continue the care. My dad heard that from several of the nurses last w eek. That convinced me he was in good hands. I have also heard a traveling nurse from Tampa say the same thing to a patient at a lo cal hospital here in Sebring. He told my friend that all she needed to do was ask for him b y name and hed do his best to get back over here if there was a problem. You sure dont hear that from very many people, regardless of what eld you are in. Yes, there are a lot of reasons to be concerned about health care, but its not all a lost cause. I witnessed that myself this past week.Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor of the Ne ws-Sun.

Audience and board members initially opposed his set of regulations, which had only been handed out that night. B oard member Tom Singletary, who is in charge of R oad and B ridges in Avon Park Lakes, asked why Schultz hadn t provided board members with copies of the rules before the meeting. Schultz said he had only just printed them off. What weve come up with, no doubt (Ga varrete) will ask for changes, Schultz said. We wouldnt be doing this if (I) hadnt been told b y R amon (Gavarrete) hed rather deal with the Association. Schultz said he told r esident Peggy Ben nett to keep gathering names on a petition, which G avarrete told residents on May 12 was also needed to get a golf cart designation. Once he has a peti tion, which would also outline which str eets golf cart users want to travel, Gavarrete would do trafc studies on those streets to see if they would be safe for golf car ts. On May 12, close to 100 residents lled the clubhouse on Nautilus Drive to hear from Ga varrete and Chief Deputy Mark Schrader on the issue B ennett was there and has been gathering signatures since then. Her stepson, Brandon Bennett, has Kniest dysplasia, which makes walking and getting a dr ivers license difcult for him. P r ior to April 26, he using a golf cart to go shing daily at Lake Olivia, but a deputy sheriff told him that it wasn t allowed on roads, so both the cart and Brandon have stayed home. Brandon Bennett was at both recent As sociation board meetings, but didnt speak on the issue S everal other residents spoke Monday, including Isabel Harrell, 84, who doesn t drive or carry a drivers license, but still uses her golf cart to get groceries from nearby Walmart. I can get a weeks worth of groceries in my cart, Harrell said. Joann Kramer said that at rst she didnt like Schultzs proposed rules, but in princi ple, they sounded ne. S he said she and her husband, Greg, would gladly have their cart inspected and pay a small fee to be able to operate it legally on the road. We have to do something to show were willing to be a safe golf cart commu nity, she said. Schultz said the fee could help pay for signs warning drivers that Avon Park Lakes is a golf cart community, but resident Patti B r ock said the Association could raise funds for 24 signs at $150 each, with one $4,000 fundraising event. Kristi Albritton, of JK Kustoms Golf Carts in Avon Park, said she and husband, Justin, had offered to do the inspections for residents since they live in A v on Park Lakes themselves. She said they wanted to see if they could help the community to make itself mor e golf-car t friend ly. Schultz told r esidents that he hopes to get C ounty C ommissioner Jim Brooks of A v on Park to back the Avon Park Lakes bid for golf cart designation, hoping it would then go smoother with G avarrete.

The mo v e comes as pressure mounts on Capitol Hill for an overhaul of the VA and a change in leadership to restore account ability at the agency. Obama announced last w eek that White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rob Nabors would be assigned to oversee a review of the VA health care system after allegations of de layed care that may hav e led to patient deaths and a cover-up by top administrators in Phoenix. Similar claims have been reported at VA facilities in Penn sylvania, Wyoming, G eor gia, Missouri, Texas, Florida and elsewhere. Nabors planned to meet Tuesday in Washington with rep resentatives of sever al veterans organizations, including the Amer ican Legion and Disabled American Veterans, among oth ers. H e will meet Thursday with leadership at the P hoenix Veterans Affairs Medical Center, including with interim director Steve Y oung, said White House spokesman Jay Carney. The current director of the Phoenix VA H ealth C are System, Sharon Helman, has been placed on leave indenitely while the Inspector Generals Ofce investigates the claims raised by sev eral former VA employees. A for mer clinic dir ector for the VA in P hoenix rst came out publicly with the allegations in April. Dr. S amuel F oote, who re tired in December after nearly 25 years with the V A, says that up to 40 veterans may have died while awaiting treatment at the P hoenix hospital and that staff, at the instruction of administrators, kept a secret list of patients waiting for appointments to hide delays in care. Investigators probing the claims say they hav e so far not linked any patient deaths in Phoenix to delayed care. The allegations have sparked a restorm on Capitol Hill and some calls for VA Sec retary Eric Shinsekis resignation.

H o wever, there was a call for the measure to go beyond the simple internal regulations. This ordinance does not address the larg er problem, said Elwell. We need to decide what role does the county EMS play and what r ole does private medical transport play Attorney for the Board of County Commissioners Ross MacBeth said that while staff was not pr epar ed to address that question at Tuesdays meeting, the item could be r eady for discussion sometime in June. This will actually have to be a collaborated effort between staff and y our attor ney, said County Administrator June Fisher It may take us some time We may have to get some information on how the commissioners may want to move. M acB eth said the or dinance changes would not be lar ge but more a matter of determining the countys business model for medical services. E lw ell asked that the matter be brought back as a regular meeting agenda item instead of as a workshop so that commissioners could make a decision and vote on it. It is an is sue that commissioners have been batting about for months D espite a strident stand by commissioner Jim Brooks not to even talk about the idea, the balance of the commission agreed in December to at least hear pr esentations fr om private medical transport companies similar to those giv en by Highlands County EMS Director Harvey Craven. I n N ovember, Craven had told the commission the local EMS had r eceiv ed 14,645 calls for service in the previous year. The countys EMS budget this y ear was set at $5,168,197. Macbeth said there had been no direction to staff to deal with the larger issue of who was to provide which medical services in the county. We werent asked to do that today, he said. That prob lem was brought today at the hearing. This or dinance was not for that purpose. This or dinance was made to cur e pr oblems, but not that problem. Ron Layne, who owns and operates Positive Medical Transport, told commissioners that one interpretation of the modied ordinance could make it more dif cult for them to do business The non-emer gency language cur rently would forbid us fr om using our basic life support ambulances to do dialysis transports that we do daily, he said. It would be a signicant loss to our business. Richie extracted a promise from Craven that, as written, the or dinance would not be interpr eted so as to inter fere with any private industr y s current prac tices. As far as I am concer ned it is going to be business as usual her e in Highlands County, Craven said.

C orrective action is to build people up, Benton said. We must weigh the wrong versus the value: Was the vio lation so egregious that (it s) not reparable? According to internal investigation reports, LaBelle was found to have violated Sheriffs Ofce General Orders that all agency mem bers must maintain the highest lev el of professionalism and avoid words, actions and attitudes which could result in undesirable consequences when he spoke with subor dinates about Patrol Deputy Amanda Dettman allegedly visiting cr iminal inv estigations several times since fall 2013. B enton said that department is a secure area accessible only to those assigned to the unit or those escorted in by unit members. Deputies fr equently go in to give infor mation on open cases she said. H ow ever, LaBelle reportedly told Lt. John Barcinas three times not to allo w D ettman in the unit without a legitimate reason and spoke with Lt. S ean C asey about not letting her in the unit. Internal investigation reports state LaBelle believed Dettman visit ed often because Inves tigator Sgt. Chris Smith gav e her a r ide home when she was drunk at a party at Smiths house in 2007, after which he returned home. Reports state Dett man visited in the unit again on M ar ch 12, 2014, and was in Smiths ofce along with Detectives Kenny Young and Bret Hinkle when LaBelle walked by. Dettman said La Belle didnt speak to her but lear ned later that he spoke with S mith and B arcinas. According to reports, LaBelle cursed at both men about Dettman being in the unit and told them not to admit her even if she had in formation on a murder case S mith reportedly asked to transfer back to road patrol, and LaBelle said, cursing, he didn t care what he did. After hearing about that exchange, Dett man led a complaint on M ar ch 17, and the Sheriffs Ofce began a bureau investigation. Dettman also made sexual harassment charges, which escalated the situation to an inter nal inv estigation. Then, on April 2, Smith led a complaint. B enton said LaB elle and Smith hadnt spo ken since the March 12 ex change in LaB elles ofce, but the morning of April 2, LaBelle sent her, Schrader and In ternal Affairs Ofcer Lt. D ar in Hood an email stating he had tried to joke and break the ice with Smith by saying he should punch Smith in the face. Smith was still look ing at his computer screen, so LaBelle thought he hadn t heard him, but I was obviously wrong, La Belle wrote. I nstead, S mith took it as a threat because of the complaint by Dettman, Benton said. A ccor ding to LaBelles email, he apologized to Smith and told him he only meant to joke, and that they shook hands. I take re sponsibility for my actions/ wor ds and again stipulate to them, LaBelle wrote. Later that day Smith complained and Paeplow put LaBelle on paid adminis trative leave and wrote to B enton, r equesting an Internal Affairs investigation. S ince that time LaBelles three lieutenants have reported dir ectly to P aeplow, Benton said. Dettman had been a member of the unit from May 5, 2010, to May 30, 2012. In her complaint, she al leged that LaBelle, o v er the department at the time, had held up her transfer for eight months by making a complaint on her. Among her allega tions, she also said that on A pr il 27, 2010, at an in-service training, LaBelle made a sexually suggestive remark, but LaB elle denied this statement. Also, despite the fact she told others about it, no other person heard it directly since they were alone at the time, reports said. Benton said that while Dettmans alle gations were founded, they were not sustained. H ood did not nd enough corroborating evidence or testimony to prove them. Some of this is high-school drama, Benton said, adding that she is embar rassed at my staff that such allegations w er e not made immediately so they could be fully inv estigated and either proven or disproven.

U.S. D istr ict Judge John E. Jones III called the plaintiffs a widow, 11 couples and one of the couples two teenage daughters courageous. W e are a better people than what these laws represent, and it is time to discard them into the ash heap of history, Jones wrote of the 1996 state ban. Jones declined to put his ruling on hold during a potential appeal by the governors ofce which defended the ban in court. The order was therefore expected to go into immediate effect Tuesday, unless Republican Gov. Tom Cor bett successfully moved for a stay while he appealed. S tate marr iage bans have been falling around the country since the U.S. Supreme C our t last year struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

In Keith Laws rst mock up for the June 6 MLB Draft on ESPN. com, which includes both college and prep players from across the country, four Flori da high schoolers were listed among the top 27. Those include N ick Gordon from Olympia High School, projected to go fth, Touki Tous saint from Coral Spring Chr istian A cademy, ninth, Sean Reid-Foley from Jacksonvilles S andalwood, 19th, and Foster Grifn from The First Academy in Or lando, 27th.

SEE FACA | A12 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comFormer Blue Streak Corbin Hoffner got the call he had been waiting for on Satur day. After a few extr a weeks of Extended Spring Training in Arizona, the right-handed pitcher was sent to the C ubs lo w-A team Kane County Cougars. Hoffner worked out of the bullpen in last summers stint with short-season Boise, though his total in nings and the manner in which he was used seemed to indicate he was being worked as sort of a piggy-back starter. In other words, the team was grooming more starting pitch ers than they had slots to star t them, so one or more would come out of the bullpen, but logging more innings and working in a time frame that is more in dicative of a starter. Scouting r epor ts had suggested that a move to Kane County Corbin Hoffner gets the call Courtesy photoCorbin Hoffner got the call to join the Kane County Cougars on Saturday.

And these arent just from the distant past, as recent FACA partic ipants include current M ajor Leaguers Andr ew McCutchen, Dee G or don, Eric Hosmer and Anthony Rizzo. Many of the players come into the event already with Division I scholarships in hand, but will be sho wcasing their skills to an ar ray of Major League scouts with the dr aft two weeks away. Local standouts Ty ler Carr of Lake Placid and Kris Johnson of H ar dee were invited to take part and test their wares against the best the state has to offer. To tell you the truth I dont know how it came about, Carr said. But it feels good that all the hard work has paid off. Now I get to pitch against some great talent and I cant wait to do so. The festivities get started Friday af ternoon as the four squads will hav e their practice time and batting cage sessions, with scouts timing them in a 60-yar d dash for the last 10 minutes of each session.

LIVING BWednesday, May 21, 2014 Family Features This grilling season, choose lean, tender lamb as the centerpiece for your sum mer entertaining menu. Once serv ed only for Eas ter, theres no reason why lamb cant be enjo y ed all year long. Just as turkey has moved beyond Thanksgiving to become every day far e, the same is true with lamb meat its readily available for all seasons and easy to prepare allo wing for lamb kabobs, burgers, thinly sliced leg of lamb and chops to be a delicious addition to your grilling occasions.Myths behind the meatIn my career as a cookbook author and cooking instructor, I have never seen a more misunderstood ingredient than lamb, said Amy Riolo awar dwinning author, chef, televi sion personality and culinary educator. While prized in most other places in the world, lamb remains a myster y to most Americans. If you havent tried lamb in a while, you may be surprised by this avorful protein. While of ten confused for mutton, the tougher meat of older lamb, young lamb is tender Others may shy away from this choice protein, believing it has a gamey taste. But modern lamb is raised differently than in the past, resulting in a sw eeter succulent taste. Can lamb t into a healthy diet? Sure! This rich-tasting meat contains, on aver age, 175 calories per 3-ounce ser ving. Lastly, people assume it s expensive; but value cuts, such as the shoulder, leg and ground lamb can t into any grocery budget.A better-for-you selectionServe up lean lamb cuts including the leg, loin and rack for a proteinand nutrientpacked dish. In fact, on average, a 3-ounce serving delivers almost 50 percent of your daily protein needs and is a good source of iron. Also r ich in zinc, selenium and vitamin B-12, a 3-ounce serving of lamb can provide nearly ve times the amount of essential omega-3 fatty ac ids when compared to beef. Lamb is also raised without the addition of synthetic hor mones .Grill up goodnessChef Amy Riolo provides these tips for serving up the most scrumptious, savory lamb right from your own grill. %  In a hurry? Choose cubed leg of lamb for kabobs rib chops or boneless butter ied leg of lamb cuts which can be grilled in minutes. %  Aromatics are lamb s best friends. Onions, garlic, spices and lemon juice enhance the natural sweet avor in lamb. %  Grilling lamb with garlic, mint and oliv e oil is a great way to introduce lamb for rst-timers. Cut slits into the lamb meat and insert pieces of garlic cloves, then rub with oil and dr ied mint. %  Use a meat thermometer to measur e the internal tem perature. Lamb will contin ue cooking after you pull it off the grill, so it s best to r emove it about 10 degrees lower than y our tar get temperature. %  Lamb is best served medium r are (145F) or medium (160F). All ground lamb should be cooked to 160F.For more lamb recipes and cooking tips, visit www.leanonlamb.com, www. pinterest.com/leanonlamb or on Twitter @leanonlamb.

And theyre so simple, youll wonder why you hadnt thought of them yourself. Save the tears. Cut onions without crying by lighting a candle beside you as youre chopping. You might also nd that holding a tooth pick between your front teeth helps to stop those onion tears. S plit up the bunch. You can get twice as much life out of your bananas by separating the bananas from the bunch when y ou get them home P revent cheese hardening. If you want to prevent your block cheese from get ting har d around the edges, rub some butter on the cut edge and wr ap the block in paper towel before wrapping in plastic or storing in a reusable container. E xtend lettuce life Store a piece of paper towel in your lettuce container. It will absorb the moisture that causes lettuce to wilt. Slice a potato in no time. Use that apple slicer in your drawer for making short work of turning a potato into wedges! Peel with a spoon. Ginger is very nubbly and dif cult to peel. Use a spoon to gently remove the peeling from fresh ginger. S ample your meat. When youre making a sauce, you can taste for seasoning as you go, but not so much with meatloaf or meatballs. If youre trying a new reci pe with your ground meat, fry a little bit on top of the sto v e so you can see if it suits your taste. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Keep your r inds Dont throw away your parmesan rinds. Save them in a bag in the freezer and add them to soups and stews for a great cheesy avor. Simply add the rind 20-30 minutes be fore your dish is nished. Enlist the help of your shells When you get a bit of egg shell in with your egg yolks and whites, instead of chasing it around the bowl with a spoon, use anoth er piece of egg shell to help scoop it out. The bit of runaway shell will be attr act ed to the shell youre scooping with. Pre-freeze your meat. Make it easy on yourself when youre slicing chick en, pork or beef for your stir-fry S imply freeze the meat for a half hour or so before you cut it. Your knife go through the meat more easily when its slightly frozen. F or a bonus tip, if y our bananas have gone over ripe on you, peel them, pop them in a freez er bag and freeze them.

It may help others. When my grandfather tried to r ape me it was at night when everyone was asleep. I stopped him as much as a 10-year -old could. The next day he wrote me a letter saying he was sorry for what he did. It read, If your dad nds out, it will KILL HIM. Strong words for a 10-year-old, so I buried the letter in the back yard. He never touched me again. Five years after that, Grandpa was arrest ed for molesting my younger brothers As a young girl, I didnt know men molested boys. I found out after my grandfather went to pr ison that he had also molested my dad and his sister when they were children. Please warn parents to educate their chil dren. Tell them that even someone they lo v e does not have the right to touch them in a way that makes them uncomfortable. My dad felt guilty for the rest of his life for what happened to us because he had let this monster back into his life. If this saves one person from the shame and guilt I have car ried, it will have been worth it. WISH I HAD TOLD IN FLORIDADEAR WISH YOU HAD TOLD: I agree with you about the importance of parents teaching children the differ ence betw een an appropriate touch and one that isnt, and how to set boundar ies. If those boundaries ar e violated, children should be instr ucted to immediately tell an adult. If its not a par ent, then tell a teacher, counselor or school nurse all of whom are mandated r eporters. Children should also tell if a friend condes it has happened to him or her, because secrets like this are harmful not only to the victim, but also to any children in the vicinity who might also be at risk. It may assuage your guilt to know that mo lesters often blackmail their victim into silence. I heard recently from a woman who said her father told her when she was a child that if she rev ealed what he was doing, he would kill himself. (It wasnt until many years later that she nal ly realized if he had, he would have been doing ev er yone, including her sister, a favor.)Contact Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O.
