Though the countys one-cent infrastructure sales tax will last for another ve years, the county commission is suggesting keeping it for 15 more years after that, starting Jan. 1, 2019. A referendum goes to a vote on Aug. 26. The extra sales tax has paid for road upgrades and expansions; parks and recreation; lake and waterway improvements; upgrades, expansion, construction and acquisition of buildings; city improvement projects; and purchases of county vehicles and equipment. Since 1989, the county has used the tax to pay $179 Katara Simmons/News-Sun(From top) The Highlands County Government Center, the Sebring Parkway and the Veteran Services building all came via the one-cent infrastructure sales tax.

The other lev el is a mor e handson situation such as bathing and making certain their clients take their medications if it is needed. G r ifn said the positions are non-medical, but a CNA or other such certication would be helpful. The positions begin at $8.25 an hour with pay increases based upon qualications. The job hiring event will be held from 9 / a.m. to 1 / p .m. Wednesday. Once ap plicants are set up in the system, appointments will be set up for them to inter view for a position.

BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING A man who had allegedly broken into a home to take his things fr om a tenant has been charged with burglary with battery and petit theft. Dewayne Barry Yancey, 45, of 1815 Karen B lv d. in Sebring, was arrested Monday after a dispute between him and the woman living at 3907 Ann Ave. who was both pregnant and had her small child liv ing with her, arrest reports said. The 24-y ear -old woman was home at 5:12 / p .m. Monday when she heard someone enter the residence. S he w ent to the kitchen to ne Yancey had taken a sliding glass door off its tr ack and entered her home, reports said. She asked him to leav e but he refused, saying he was taking his things H e then opened the refrigerator, put all of the contents on the counter, and then removed the refrigerator from the home, all the time y elling at the woman, reports said. According to reports, $48 worth of food sat spoiling on the counter while he took other items H e then walked into the living room, grabbed a shelf, threw its contents on the oor and took the shelf out of the house. Reports said the victim kept or dering him out of her house but he kept r eturning. H e then gr abbed a couch in her living room and pushed it to war d her small child, reports said. She grabbed her child out of the way and ran down a corridor as he followed, yelling at her. Reports said he fol lowed her into a bedroom and pulled a ther mostat control off the wall, y elling that no one would use the air-conditioning in the house. The woman told deputies she remained in the bedr oom until she heard Yancey leave. Other information in the report was redacted, but deputies found they had enough evidence to arrest Yancey.Man charged with burglary with battery after break-in BOCA GRANDE (AP) For decades, legendary hammerhead Old Hitler has been the subject of shing folklore up and down the southern coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Depending on the source, Old Hitler has a head as wide as a pickup truck, and is longer than most of the shing boats its been spot ted from. H is massiv e body is covered in scars from encounters with shermens machetes, harpoons and boat pr opellers Even though the legend has evolved over the last century, what always remains constant Old Hitler is the biggest, meanest shar k to ev er roam the waters from Everglades City to T ampa B ay. The mighty shark has been the subject of numer ous newspaper headlines and documentar ies o ver the years. It has been immortalized in art and song. Stories of close encounters hav e been told around bait buckets for generations, passed do wn fr om father to son like heroic war stories. Now the fabled sh is getting its own prime-time slot in this y ear s Shark Week marathon on the Discovery Channel, which is in its 27th y ear of celebr ating the oceans apex predators. Although tales of massive hammerheads have been common up and down the coast since the turn of the 20th century, it wasnt until World War II that those tales took on near-mythical pro portions. T ales of a 20-foot hammer head circulated. The supposed shar k was as dar k as a shadow and covered in scars. There was a notch in its dorsal n, a result of a run-in with a commer cial mullet sherman off the coast of U seppa I sland in the early 1960s. The sher man struck the shark with a machete after it mauled a net full of sh and began bumping the 15-foot vessel. The shark swam away with the large knife still embedded in its dorsal n. Ther e was a swastikashaped scar on its for ehead, a result of either a propeller scar or the carvings of some waywar d local y outh, depending on the source. It was just one of many battle scars that covered its dark brown skin. Johns Knight Jr., a Boca Grande historian, remem bers one specic giant hammerhead that was seen year after y ear in the pass that had the head of a harpoon spear protruding from its back. According to Knight, whose family has lived in Boca Grande since the ear ly 1900s, the legend took off because of a school pr oject done b y him, his brother and a family friend, Har lan Wilbur, in 1968. Wilbur had hear d numer ous tales of giant sharks from his father, who worked on the old phosphate docks The boys collected all the sh tales of Boca Grande sharks into a single story. We had no idea it was going to become the story that it did, Knight said. It was printed in the school paper, and then Englewoods paper wrote about, then a bigger paper and a bigger paper.

www.newssun.comSunday, August 17, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSWe may come to know the details of what happened at noon, Aug. 9, between an unarmed black teenager and a white police of cer. Until then we reserve all com ment on what might or might not have hap pened. As far as the ofcial reaction to this sudden, highly volatile emergency, however, we have a great deal to say. From the moment of the shooting, the St. Louis County Police Department botched the handling of the fall out from the shooting. Effor ts by certied journalists were thwarted, reporters roughed up and equipment taken. There was no effort to reach out to the community. Worse, citizens with cameras or smartphones were also harrassed. The police department, in addition to using tear gas, smoke, and posting snipers close to the line of confrontation, did everything it could to stie news of the original incident and also about how law enfor cement ini tially responded and the fact the po lice were continuing with military tac tics even after the peoples protests became peaceful. What we nd unpr ofessional and excessive is the way too many mem bers of the police department focused on citiz ens taking pictures or videoing action. In retrospect, it was irrational as if news of this importance could be contained. Many protesters and journalists were repeatedly told to stop lming and stop taking pictures. Two of them were even arrested at a McDonalds, blocks from any of the protesting. In sharp contrast, Lake Placid police ofcers welcome the unblinking eye of video cameras. Ofcers wear chest cams that record interactions with the public. Chief James Fansler says the cameras decrease possible claims of police violence and help hold his ofcers accountable. The LPPDs transparency does not go unnoticed during this discussion of police trampling the rights of bystanders armed with their strongest w eapon: the cam era built into their cell phone. There is a critical lesson to be learned in all this. In all the chaos, the initial overreac tion by both sides, and the number of highly questionable confrontations between law enforcement and citizens, it is easy to overlook the fact that some law enforcement ofcers think you dont have the right to lm them and will arrest you to make you stop. For the record numerous court cases have determined that citizens may lm police ofcers or deputies when they are on the street. It is one way of keeping them honest, and es sential in protecting our democracy.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com J oO IN THE CON vV ERS A tT I oO NLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less, although longer letters may be considered.

It was a bit too raunchy for my taste. The Robin Williams I enjoyed was the nanny Mrs Doubtr e, the blue genie of the lamp, the grown-up Peter Pan. And thats doesnt even include his years as the alien Mork in the hit television sho w Mork and Mindy. He always came across full of life and energy. So to learn of his death at the untimely age of 63 was a shock. Finding out he was dead by his own hand turned the world upside-down. How could that happen? When it came out that he was suffering from severe depression, some were confused. What did a man like Robin Williams have to be depressed about? That question and others show how little most people know and comprehend about depression. Well-meaning folk will say stuff like, Well, snap out of it! You should be praying more. Spend more time in the Bible. And these are people who are trying to help. Others are much less kind. Youre just in a bad mood. Heres the thing. Depression is not something you can snap out of. Its not like ipping a light switch. Nor is it a sign of moral or spiritual failing. It is dare I say it a mental illness. I know something about this subject. Depression and I have been companions for more years than I like to admit. It seems to run in the women of my family, adding a genetic component to the mix. What is depression like? I can only speak for myself and my own experiences, but let me give you a quick guided tour of what this disease can look like. Having depression means there are days when getting out of bed is a huge challenge and a major victory. It means going through your routine and responsibilities when all you want to do is crawl into a hole and pull the hole in after you. It means looking for a sliver of sunlight in a dark place. It means pain you cant explain and dont know how to stop. And yes, I take medication. Yes, I am seeing a counselor. Those things help me more or less function. But even with those helps ther e ar e days the depression breaks through and seems to win a battle or two. My goal for now is to not let it win the war. Those who are suffering from depression dont need a lecture. They dont need platitudes. What they need sometimes is a shoul der to cry on. Or a hug. Or even just someone who will listen as they wor k through their thoughts and feelings. Some reading this column may suffer from depression. If you do and you are not getting help for it, talk to your doctor. There are things that can lighten the load. Talk to someone, a friend, a preacher, who can direct you to the help you need. Studies show that a combination of counseling and medication can do wonders. Know you are not alone. Were here, like you, trying to put one foot in front of the other and get through the day. We understand. And well do what we can to sup port you on this walk. Let me close this column with a quote fr om Robin Williams in the movie Worlds Greatest Dad: If you are that depressed, reach out to someone. And re member, suicide is a permanent solution to a tempor ar y problem. P lease r emember this and if you are feeling suicidal, get help immediately. If not for you, for those youd leave behind. Robin Williams left a world of people r eeling in gr ief. Dont do that to those you love.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not neces sarily those of the staff of the News-Sun.Robin Williams death puts spotlight on depression LAURAS LOOKLaura Ware II t s up to youThe mid-term election is on the way in Highlands County, and the campaigns to get y our v ote is hot and heavy. The county is using $25,000 of your tax dollars to push for a yes vote on the 15-year extension of the 1 cent sales tax, extending it to 2034. A t $10 million per y ear that June Fisher said the tax will produce, that is $200 million over and above the other tax es you pay. Do you have that kind of money? And will the 1 cent tax or the tax dollars it r eplaces be spent wisely? The other day the S ebr ing airport came to the county to get help in securing a loan for a building that was to be used by a manufacturing rm named Project Nitrogen. In stead of help, the commission just gave them $600,000 in y our tax dollars and ser vices. Now a number of the citizens reminded them that they w er e short $10.8 million in balancing this years budget, and they didnt have the money to do this. They stated they w er e not sure that this venture would succeed, but thought it was worth a shot and did it any way. This is the same commission that has said they didnt hav e enough money to giv e their employees a raise for the last seven years. Is there anything that you, the taxpayer, can do about this kind of spending by the coun ty commission? At this time, I say just one thing. Don t give them extra money to play with. And this is by vetoing no on the 1 cent sales tax. May be if it fails this time they will wake up and see they need to change their spending ways That could and should drop the millage rate. Yes, I know that if the exten sion fails this election, it will not go away until 2019, and w e will see it two more times 2016 and 2018 but at that time, we can see if we want to ght it or support it. But if it passes this time, then you get to pay it for 20 more years until 2034, and you will see the same spending you have seen for years. So, if you are happy with the way your tax money is be ing spent, vote yes. If you are not happ y and want a change vote no. It is up to you.BI llLL YOUNGMANSebring PP roud of dedicated se rvantsOn Aug. 4, the Highlands County Democratic Par ty enthusiastically welcomed C ounty A dministrator June Fisher, Assistant County Administrator Randy Vosburg and A dministr ative Projects Manager Chris Benson.

We searched and nally saw a speck of tan tangled in the mass of br anches. Initially, workers thought it might have been a baby fox but later determined it was a small dog. D aniels r an to put on her boots to wade through the water try ing to to reach the distressed canine. Due to the dr opoff, she said she could not get to the puppy from the shelter side of the ditch. She was standing on a limb, but every time I tried to reach her she backed away, Daniels said. They went and got a retrieval net, but due to the dense underbrush, that didnt work. She just kept whin ing and backing further in, D aniels said. Since they were unable to retrieve the animal safely they contacted Animal Control, which is located just next door and is equipped with the pr oper tools for such an incident. Staff members Aubra McAnally and Bethany Burnett immediately responded to the scene and the combined forc es were able to pull the soaked, cold and terr ied but unhar med dog to safety We used our catch pole, said Burnette. I came in from one side and Aubra was on the other side and grabbed her with the pole. As it turned out, the dog was a Chihuahua, which workers since have named Foxy. We named her that because at rst we thought she might have been a baby fox, Daniels said. Her face kind of looks like a fox. Thats why we thought she was a fox at rst. Since her harrowing ordeal, ofcials at the Humane Society say she has recovered and is doing just ne. Because she was a stray, Foxy was put in a standard ve-day hold ing cycle, meaning that she will under go testing and v etting.

Scott took a spe cial moment to recognize retired U.S. Marine Joshua McKee, 23, of Lake P lacid, who r eceived the Bronze Star for ghting off an insurgent attack in 2012 at for war d operating base Hansen, dur ing 3rd Battalion, 8th M ar ines deployment to Afghanistan. While wounded under heavy re, McKee took cover and was able to call for help. Scott also recognized Robert Prendergast, fourth-generation U.S. Army combat veteran, member of the Flori da U.S. Army National Guard and son to C ol. M ike Prendergast (U.S. Army retired), executive director of the F lor ida Department of Veterans Affairs. They are among the many heroes here today, Scott said before handing out the medals one by one. O ne v eteran Lemoyne Calvin Ezell, 85, of O keechobee enlisted in the U.S. N avy at age 16 dur ing World War II. He called him self the family protector, the oldest of four bo ys and two girls His brothers followed him into service. Serving on such ships as the USS W.C. Cole, USS Wiltsie and USS Gendreau, he earned such service medals as the World War II Vic tory Medal, American Campaign M edal, Asiatic Pacic Campaign M edal, N avy Occupation Service Medal with Asia clasp and the China Service Medal. J oseph M cKenney, 89, of Arcadia served during World War II in North Africa with the Army Air Corps, later called the U.S. Air F or ce, working with C-54 cargo planes as part of the supply line. He doesnt call him self a hero. I did what I was supposed to do , McKenney said. So many guys did so much mor e. This honors them, too. Diana Maisonet of Sebring served from 1974-1976 as an army mental health spe cialist at Fort Jackson. Aside from treating soldiers coming back fr om Vietnam, she helped the Army screen electrical lineman for acrophobia. Those r etur ning from Vietnam got painted with the politics of the war, Maisonet said. Since then, shes seen American people warm up to veterans after ev ery foreign war. They may not agr ee with (a) war, but they know (soldiers) are out there ghting and giving up their lives, Maisonet said. Thats a big shift. R oger Payne of Wauchula joined the U.S. Ar my N ational Guard in 1986 and served rst with the eld artillery, then the Quartermaster Corps at Fort Lee, V a. H e served two tours in Korea and a tour in Iraq, but doesnt call himself a hero. To me, the heroes kicked in doors look ing for people, Payne said. I was just doing my job. Paynes only com plaint about the event that some elderly v eter ans had to stand in the cr o wded space. Lt. Justin Phillips, depu ty communications director for the Florida N ational G uard, said the Avon Park Armory is the smallest venue so far for a Governors Award ceremony, aside from one at an AmVets post. Though a bigger venue may be needed in the future, its prefer able to give the awards at a militar y facility he said. Prendergast called Florida the most veter an-friendly state, and Ar thur S outhwell, U.S. Air Force veteran from Arcadia, hopes to help it stay that way. He, McKenney and other DeSoto County veter ans raised $20,000 to dedicate V eter ans Memorial Park in Arcadia, displaying ags of the v e militar y branch ags, Merchant Marine, state of Florida, D eS oto County and the 9/11 memorial ag.

www.newssun.comSunday, August 17, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A9 million for infrastructure improved projects, said Chris Benson, community pr ogr ams and administrative projects manager. Projects planned or in pr ogr ess through 2015 the coming scal year would include $14 million in public buildings and facilities and mor e than $35 million in transportation projects and equipment. Benson said most of the funds are used to either pay a percentage of a grant, where state funding pays the larg er share, or used to pay directly for impr ovements or repairs rather than pulling funds directly from the countys general fund. P ast pr ojects have included: $1.01 million for land to build the H ighlands C ounty Government Center $481,507 for the County Annex build ing $375,592 for the medical examiner s building $1.91 million for jail renovations $1.17 million for EMS ambulances and equipment $1.5 million for Windy Point Park improvements $4.54 million for a multi-eld softball complex $212,500 on land for Veterans Beach $9.58 million for road construction equipment $17.6 million in road resurfacing $436,473 for the Vet erans Services building The county is asking to extend the infrastructure sales tax because county staff need to hav e a guaranteed sour ce of revenue for planning purposes, Benson said. It helps nance debt for pr ojects as w ell as insure that projects can get completed if gr ant funding r uns out. Its not just growth, Benson said. We need to maintain our existing infrastructure. H e said the county may hav e expansion in its long-r ange plans but actually isnt looking to expand facilities until economic gr o wth rebounds from the recession. H e said the county commission suspended impact fees in 2009 in hopes of spurr ing gr owth, but hasnt reinstated the fees because the gr o wth still hasnt returned. Projects on the books right now include: A law enforcement facility: $9.15 mil lion. S ebr ing Parkway Phase III: $3.22 million. E mer gency Medical Services main station: $375,000. V aler ie Road EMS station: $200,000. Detention facility roof repair: $202,600. Emergency Oper ations Center airconditioning and electr ical cir cuitry: $195,000. Avon Park Library roof replacement: $92,700. Future projects in clude: $21.5 million for r oad r esurfacing. $7.67 million for Public Works Department equipment. $1.58 million for in tersection and road safety impr o vements. $1.16 million for new ambulances $1.25 million for new Sheriffs Office patrol cars. $456,000 for a new downtown Sebring EMS station. $120,000 for park ing at the Health D epar tment. The tax is expected to raise a total $57.3 million to pay for pr ojects through 2019. TAX FROM PAGE A A 1County Administrative Projects Manager Chris Benson stood alone before the Highlands Tea Party. Resident John Drennan began by asking B enson why county commissioners had allocated up to $25,000 in tax money to adv ocate for the infr astructure surcharge, while ther e was no money given to those with an opposing view. The information is factual and statutory, Benson responded, referring to a postcard mailed out to v oters citing differ ent items paid for by the tax such as road paving, new parks, government buildings and additional government v ehicles When asked about previous commissions expenditures for the tax, such as the countys sports complex which came in late over budget and continues to be a drain on ad v alor em and other tax revenues, Benson said expenditures had not been perfect. Unfortunately, these things happen. We are going to make mis takes; it is a learning exper ience , he said. When asked by resident Dick Frankhausen what per centage of the tax was paid for by visitors to the county, Benson estimated it at 2030 per cent, but did not indicate how that num ber was determined. B enson told the audience that if the tax did not pass county of cials would hav e to nd other ways to r aise money, such as increases in property taxes and the institution of fees assessments or other charges. I do not accept the premise that we cant stop spending, said former Highlands County commission candidate Mike Barry. What you are doing is asking us to impose a tax on others, a tax that will run through 2034. A tax many of those people will never be able to vote upon. That is taxation without rep resentation. Lester Lob pointed to r epeated requests that the commission look at the privatization of the countys Emergency Medical Services. You have $1.6 mil lion budgeted here for mor e EMS infr astructure. How can commissioners even say they ar e consider ing turn ing it to the private sector when they intend to spend that kind of money? he said. B enson pointed out that the county already has a blended system, wher e ther e is some private EMS transport permitted. Resident Tom Macklin, a former mayor of the city of A v on Park, told Benson he believed that the fund was used in some cases to hide purchases by mo ving them out of the general fund budget. He also questioned the level of trust that citizens had for this and futur e commissions to spend the money wisely once the tax had been re-imposed for an additional 15 years. This is the citizens only direct ability to actually lower their tax es, he said. We have too many wants. Defeating this tax would cause commissioners to consider tightening their belts. Bill Youngman, who frequently appears before commissioners at their daytime meetings, said he was per cent against this tax. He gave a history of the surcharge str etching back to the rst 15-year term enacted in 1989, to the second 15 y ears appr oved in 1999 to the curr ent r equest that would take it past the lifespan of almost everyone in the room T uesday ev ening. He expressed frustration at what he per ceived to be the commissions tendency to not listen to citizens and do what they want. The commission has several more chances to br ing this up. Maybe if we turn down the tax they will listen to us, he said. Benson admitted to the crowd that this was not the only time that commissioners could bring the tax before the voters, noting that if it did not pass this time, it could be put on the ballot again in 2016 and even 2018 before it would sunset in 2019. He said, however, that planning longrange expenditures would be more difcult without the assurance that the tax, which cur rently generates about $10 million a y ear would be collected. The money is split between the county, which realizes about $8 million a year; the City of Sebring, which gets about $988,000 annually; the City of Avon Park, which real izes around $891,000; and the T own of Lake Placid, which gets only $203,000 of the annual proceeds. At the end of the session, a box of yard signs in opposition to the penny tax was opened for citizens to purchase at their own expense. Business was brisk. The referendum will appear on the Aug. 26 primary ballot. Early voting for the primary opened Saturday and will last through the week.

Shortly after Johnson thwarted the touchdown pass, kicker Car los Santana, lending his leg fr om the Lake Placid soccer team, split the uprights on the 35-yard eld goal showing another valuable scoring option the D r agons will have this season. But soon after that, the dark skies to the west made their way over Lake Placid and opened up, with streaks of lightning causing a delay and then the cancellation of the rest of the game. They are getting tired of just hitting each other in practice, and at least tonight was a little more of a game atmosphere, Robinson said.

L IVING BSunday, August 17, 2014Photo provided The Precious Cargo app is available on Apple and Google Play markets. It will remind you that your child is traveling with you, helping prevent kids left behind upon reaching a destination. BY LARR Y GRIFFINSTAFF WRITERSEBRING This summer has been swelteringly hot. The folks at Sonray Technologies have a solution with Kulcar, a solar powered heat ventilation system that lters in cool air to your car. The product, debuting in Florida after only recently being completed, works like this: with a solar panel on the outside of a cars window, the window is rolled up and a fan on the inside of the car will suck out the hot air, replacing it with fresh air. Axia PR, the public rela tions group whom Sonray hired for the product, tried it out on two cars that were very similar one with the Kulcar product and one without. PR Associate Amanda Clark claimed that, appar ently, the vehicle that did not have the Kulcar product was notably hotter than the one that did use it. This should be good for children in hot cars and for older people, Clark said. It could prevent damage to your vehicle. The leather wouldnt crack and the car will be cooler. The Kulcar system can be bought on the Kulcar site (kulcar.com) or on Amazon for $89.99. For more infor mation, Amanda Clark can be contacted at aclark@ axiapr.com. Kulcar device will prevent car overheating BY KIM LEATHERMANNEWS-JOURNAL CORRESPONDENTParents know about kids cars seats and seat belts, but current statistics show perhaps they need more education when it comes to leaving children unattended in cars. According to the De partment of Geosciences, this years fatality statistics are staggering. So far, there have already been 20 deaths of children who were been left in cars. In 2013, there were 44 deaths. Although the numbers are shocking, they are 100 percent preventable. Florida State Statute 316.6135 clearly shows leaving children unattend ed in cars is illegal, even if the car is running with the air conditioner on. The law states no parent, legal guardian, or other per son responsible for a child younger than 6 years of age shall leave such child unattended or unsupervised in a motor vehicle for a period in excess of 15 minutes; however, no such person shall leave a child unattended for any period of time if the motor vehicle is running or the health of the child is in danger. The law lays out nes of up to $500 and citations for a noncriminal trafc infrac tion. Under this statute, law enforcement ofcers have the right to use any means necessary to rescue a child from a hot car. The child will then be held with the Department of Children and Family Services until the parents or guardian is found. We will use any means necessary to get a child out of a hot car, said Chief James Fansler of Lake Plac id Police Department. We will take the door off the hinges if necessary. Fansler said it doesnt happen often in Lake Placid and it is usually pet owners who are to blame. We edu cate them on the dangers, said Fansler. A cars interior can reach up to 109 degrees Fahrenheit within 10 minutes and 124 degrees within a half an hour when the temperature outside is just 90. Studies have shown that cracking open windows for pets and children does not make a signicant difference in the interior car temperature. Some tips that may help avoid tragedy are: Never leave kids in the car, not for anything. Pay for gas at the pump with a debit or credit card. Use drive-through servic es to eliminate the risk of forgetting your child is in the back seat. When changing schedules for daycare and schools etc., be extra vigilant. Place a purse, cell phone, wallet or other needed item on the back oor board to force you to open the back doors and see your child in his or her car seat. BY KIM LEATHERMANNEWS-JOURNAL CORRESPONDENTWhile there is no substitute for a watchful eye when it comes to infant care, there are now smartphone apps to act as a backup to help eliminate the tragedy of lives cut short by kids left in hot cars. Precious Cargo is one such app and is available on Apple and Google Play mar kets. For less than a dollar, Precious Cargo will remind you that your child is trav eling with you, helping prevent kids left behind upon reaching a destination. It works when Bluetooth in the car is activated. The app asks the driver if they will be traveling with pre cious cargo. Upon reaching the programmed location and when the driver turns off the engine, the app alerts the parent that there is precious cargo in the backseat. This app also has a GPS option for cars without Bluetooth technology. This app will alert you even when you are on the phone or even if the ringer is turned off. Baby Reminder is another forget-me-not app for the iPhone and is available for download for free. This technology uses a programmable calendar to set the dates and times that a parent nor mally travels with their child; for example, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. and again at 5 p.m. The app monitors and alerts you that you have arrived at your destination and reminds driver that there is a baby on board. There are many other apps for smartphones and tablets, also designed to help dis tracted parents remember their little passengers.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, August 17, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: Im a nurse who has been providing flu vaccinations for customers in a big box store. Most of them regard us health care workers as people who want to keep them healthy. My problem is parents who use me as a threat of punishment for their kids. I have had parents drag their screaming, crying kids over to me, telling them that if they dont behave they are going to make me give them a shot. One woman pulled her daughter by the arm, sat her in the chair and said, OK, give her a shot! The little girls eyes filled with tears and she panicked. I looked the woman in the eye and told her I didnt appreciate her making her daughter afraid of me. I told the little one that sometimes we have to take medicine that might hurt us or taste bad, but ONLY because we hoped it would make her better. Then I assured her I wasnt giving her a shot. The woman laughed nervously, said she was just joking and rushed her child away. I worked hard to become a nurse and my goal is keeping people healthy. Parents: PLEASE dont use health care workers as punishment. Youre not helping us to do our job when you cant do yours. NOT THE BAD GUY IN CLINTON, TENN. DEAR NOT THE BAD GUY: Its unfortunate, but some parents do this not only with health care workers, but also with police officers, and its an unbelievably stupid practice. To make a child fearful of the professionals they may at some point need is counterproductive and poor parenting. If a child is acting up and being disruptive in a public place, a better solution is to remove him or her from the premises until you have regained control of the situation. DEAR ABBY: My 18-year-old daughter was killed in an auto accident a couple of months after she graduated from high school with honors. She had planned to go to college and become a nurse. Right after graduation she went on a senior trip to Mexico. Two days later she called me wanting to come home. She said everyone was drinking, doing drugs, having sex with strangers and she didnt like it. I bought her a plane ticket and she came home the next day. She died two months later. Eight months went by and I was having a particularly hard time one night. I prayed for a sign from God that she was in heaven and doing well. The next day, the day before Good Friday, I went to my mailbox. Inside was a postcard from my daughter. She had mailed it from Mexico the day before she returned. It was in mint condition and had been lost in the mail for 10 months. The card read: It is beautiful here. Im OK. I miss you and love you, Mommy. Love, Brandi. I was so happy and relieved! I was able to move on with my life after that. I signed up for college a few weeks later and earned my degree four years later. Thank you, Abby, for letting me share my miracle with you. SHARON IN LOUISIANA DEAR SHARON: My goodness, you dont have to thank me. Your letter moved me to the point of tears. Although I have printed many letters about pennies from heaven, this is the first time I have heard about a postcard. Im glad it gave you the comfort and validation that you needed.Nurse objects when mother threatens girl with flu shot DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby. com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. WEEKLY HOROSCOPEARIES Aries, sometimes you just need to put a different spin on things to get your way. Instead of being too pushy with things, relax a bit and let others come to you. TAURUS Taurus, ask for further clar ication if there is something you dont understand. Do not make important decisions until you understand all of the pertinent details. GEMINI Gemini, now is a good time to plan an outing with family members. Its been awhile since youve made some memories together, and your schedule affords you this opportunity. CANCER How do you know how others will react to your requests if you never drum up the courage to ask, Cancer? Let your feelings be known this week and take a risk. LEO Leo, enjoy an upcoming reunion with a friend you havent seen in some time. Make the most of this opportunity to catch up and recall old times. VIRGO Virgo, you have much-needed rest and relaxation coming your way. Let loose this week and enjoy the freedom. Enlist others to join in the fun. LIBRA Libra, an opportunity to jump on the career path you always had in mind for yourself is about to present itself. Do everything in your power to make the job yours. SCORPIO Scorpio, distractions are all around you and you nd it difcult to stay focused on one thing at a time. Try separating yourself from all external stimulation for a few days. SAGITTARIUS Something inspires you to give a relationship another chance, Sagittarius. Maybe it was the lyrics to a song or a segment on a television show, but you are moved to action. CAPRICORN Obligations at home could temporarily stall work plans, Capricorn. Fortunately, you have understanding bosses who are willing to give you the time you need. AQUARIUS Aquarius, your friends are great sources of unconditional support. Lean on them for advice as you make an important decision in the coming weeks. PISCES Pisces, try some things that fall outside of your comfort zone. The adventure will recharge your batteries and may prove inspiring.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, August 17, 2014 www.newssun.com CROSSWORD SOLUTION BUSINESS SEBRING Sheilas Corner Market stands where there once was an outside food stand that sold fruits, vegetables, cigarettes and beer. When current owner Sheila Ann Kuyrkendall bought the location at 407 N. Ridgewood Drive from its previous owners this past May, she vowed to keep the spirit alive. I assured the family who originally owned this land that Id keep this going, she said. Her motives are not only fueled by the desire to keep up tradition. Kuyrkendall wants to help people. I feel like my goal is to be here, she said. I want to do anything to help bring attention so people can experience Sebring. Its a wonder ful town. Sheilas Corner Markets gimmick is that it offers full baskets of ingredients necessary to make specialty cocktail drinks including the alcohol and the fruits or vegetables used in the recipes. There are many ways that liquor can be used with fruits and vegetables to make drinks, Kuyrkendall said. The weekly featured drink this past week was The Incredible Hulk, Kuyrkendall said a blend of Henessey and Hypnotic, with one ounce of each mixed together. Kuyrkendall currently has one man volunteering for her: Randy Rinehardt, a retired attorney who helps out around the shop, intending to help it get started. Rinehardts wife initially helped Kuyrkendall build parts of the alcohol section of the store. Kuyrkendalls goal is to eventually hire a dozen workers to make rocking chairs out of old wine barrels several of which she currently has at her bar location at Sheilas Corner Market. But why wine barrels? Ive always had a passion for wine barrels since I was a child she answered. I ordered 41 wine barrels from France and bought them in here. Thats the theme. Kuyrkendall also expressed a fondness for 1930s bars in general, which the alcohol store portion of the Corner Market was made to look like. Kuyrkendalls background as a Christian helps shape her world view, and her background as a bar owner and a mental health counselor further dene it. All three together make her a very different kind of bar owner. People wonder how I can be Christian and work a bar, she said. But a bar is the best place to witness people. I dont sell to some people. The dollar doesnt mean more to me than peoples well being. Sheilas General Store is open from 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday, and from 11 a.m. to midnight on Sunday.

While many of the restaurants in the system are getting rid of Satisfries, area restaurants reportedly will continue to carry the lower-calorie french fries the chain introduced less than a year ago. Thats just the corporate stores, not the franchise stores, said Chris Wilkins, an assistant manager at Burger King South in Sebring. The Miami-based Burger King had announced last week that it had given its North American franchisees the option to discontinue selling the product. Reportedly, only about 2,500 of the approximately 7,500 locations opted to keep selling them as a permanent item. The others have start ed phasing them out. Officials from Quality Dining Inc. which own the stores in the greater Tampa area, including the three Highlands County outlets say they will keep serving Satisfries. That makes the local operators happy. They sell about as well as the regular fries; we keep about the same amount of each in the store, Wilkins said. Our guests like them; they order a lot. That sentiment was echoed by Avon Park Burger King Manager Jair Quintero, who said both the Satisfries and a companion product, low-calorie onion rings, were a consistent seller at his location. People like them a lot, he said. Satisfries gained widespread attention online when Burger King introduced them last September. The company said the fries used a different type of batter to prevent some oil from being absorbed by the potatoes in the frying process. The crinkle-cut are billed as having 30 percent less fat and 20 percent fewer calories than similar offerings at competing fast food restaurants. For instance, a small serving of Burger Kings Satisfries weighs in at 270 calories and 11 grams of fat compared to 340 calories and 15 grams of fat for a small serving of its classic fries. Among other restaurant franchises, Quality Dining Inc. is one of the largest franchisees in the worldwide Burger King system, operating 165 of the locations in Indiana, Michigan and Florida.County to remain SatisfriedBY BARRY FOSTERNEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT 3073729 863-453-4741www.america rstac.com2153 State Road 64 W, Avon Parkrfrntb rfntb fft 3072130 'O r 460,}il w -qqw,Air Conditioning & HeatingEXAMPLE BALLOTCONTINUATION OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT0 i "' INFRASTRUCTURE SURTAX Sec. 212.055(2) F.S.Shall the County Commissioners of Highlands County continue toyy levy a one-cent sales tax for Local Government Projects such as the1 i L t r f a following fora term of fifteen years commencing January 1, 2011 % .' , "' ` Road Systen upgrade and expansionT R Parks and recreationLake and waterway improvements/ ` Governmental facilities upgrade, expansion, construction, andacquisitionEI 1 Y 1 I [ 1: Municipa l improvement ectsGovernmental vehicles and equipmentb e 01'11 x 7 0 FOR the one-cent sales taxik e e i ~ n, m '` j 0 AGAINST the one-cent sales taxA--now 1, y.W .ri_Y, i :I ''fir' `4re $NER >,:o wrrJvw.hcbcc.netrnpi'i'Ii .F cr, f cw ,COQpo-q--ii, Y t'o.Y7ai,f ,_..irci .u_ .._ e... ,., vsT?v,ri4.". c1_aL ,.. .Y nf.1 sC;+ t -cya'' 1

Sunday, August 17, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 www.newssun.com BUSINESS ROYAL OAK, Mich. Your next commuter car could have two seats, three wheels and get 84 miles to the gallon. Elio Motors wants to revolutionize U.S. roads with its tiny car, which is the same length as a Honda Fit but half the weight. With a starting price of $6,800, its also less than half the cost. Phoenix-based Elio plans to start making the cars next fall at a former General Motors plant in Shreveport, Louisiana. Already, more than 27,000 people have reserved one. Elio hopes to make 250,000 cars a year by 2016. Thats close to the number Mazda sells in the U.S. Because it has three wheels two in front and one in the rear the Elio is actually classied as a motorcycle by the U.S. government. But Elio Motors founder Paul Elio says the vehicle has all the safety features of a car, like anti-lock brakes, front and side air bags and a steel cage that surrounds the occupants. Drivers wont be required to wear helmets or have motorcycle licenses. The Elios two seats sit front and back instead of side by side, so the driver is positioned in the center with the passenger directly behind. That arrangement, plus the low seating position the Elio is just 54 inches tall and the lack of power steering take a little getting used to. But after a couple of spins around the block in this Detroit suburb, it felt like any other small car. Thats partly because its two front wheels stick out by a foot on both sides, aiding balance and preventing the vehicle from tipping. The Elio has a three-cylinder, 0.9-liter engine and a top speed of more than 100 miles per hour. It gets an estimated 84 mpg on the highway and 49 mpg in city driving. Elio keeps the costs down in several ways. The car only has one door, on the left side, which shaves a few hundred dollars off the manufacturing costs. Having three wheels also makes it cheaper. It will be offered in just two congurations with a manual or automatic transmission and it has standard air conditioning, power windows and door locks and an AM/FM radio. More features, such as navigation or blindspot detection, can be ordered through Elios long list of suppliers. Germanys Daimler also promised to revolutionize American commutes with the Smart car, but that hasnt panned out, says Karl Brauer, a senior analyst with Kelley Blue Book. Smart sold just 9,264 cars in the U.S. last year. The Smart has a starting price of $13,270 for a gas-powered car and gets 38 mpg on the highway not enough savings or fuel economy to justify sacricing comfort in the tiny car. But, Brauer said, the equation might work in the Elio. If it really gets 84 mpg and doesnt drive terribly, it would justify the compromises youre making in size and comfort, he said. Elio will also save money by selling the cars directly through its own stores and not through franchised dealers, similar to electric car maker Tesla Motors. Elio plans stores in 60 major metropolitan areas. Theyll be serviced by car repair chain Pep Boys. Paul Elio, a one-time stockbroker and New York City cab driver, dreamed as a kid that he would one day own a car company called Elio Motors. As I matured I decided that was as likely as playing in the NFL, Elio told The Associated Press. But he did earn an engineering degree at General Motors Institute now Kettering University and started his own company engineering products like childrens car seats. In 2008, tired of high gas prices and the countrys dependence on foreign oil, he started working on a fuel-efcient car. Equally important to him was creating U.S. manufacturing jobs and making the car inexpensive enough to appeal to buyers who might otherwise be stuck in old, unreliable clunkers. Whatever matters to you, this can move the needle on it, he said.Three-wheeled Elio gets closer to going on sale BY DEE-ANN DURBINASSOCIATED PRESS COURTESY PHOTOThe Elio has two seats, three wheels and get 84 miles to the gallon, all for a list price of $6,800. 3075498 rf ntbfbf tbrfrfntbbb ff b ft rr 3072354 rfntbr Amazing Homes, A ordable Prices rf n tbfb r $ 99,500 $490 per monthMortgage Rate 4.25% 30 Year Loan Principle and Interest Only 3067122 CONSTRUCTIONBD2 CK D M-BDBD3 LIV GAPORCHAIR DUTCLEANINGCIs Your Home Making You Sick?Excess Dust?

Sunday, August 17, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B7 www.newssun.com Skipping! Singing! Joking! Laughing! These are traits of children. Why walk when you can skip? Why simply talk when you can sing with melodies rising from your heart? Why be serious all the time when giggles tickle with delight? Our youngest granddaughter talks or sings incessantly. Songs she knows or makes up oat from her heart like effervescence. Quietness is a rare treat. Yet there is a time to be serious even for children. Knowing how to sit quietly in church and express reverence in Gods house is one such time. Visiting someone who is sick and not being loud in their presence shows respect. Being in a public place and not running all over is still another. And just how do children understand how to be children; and, yet, know how to begin to have self-control? Thats where parents and other adult leaders come in. Parents have the joy of encouraging childlike behavior. Skip, sing, joke and laugh often with them. But, also teach them manners, proper ways of addressing others in authority and acceptable behavior. Then they will be well received wherever they go growing into young people and adults who live balanced, godly lives. The Bible isnt slack in helping us raise our children right. For example in Proverbs 22:6, NKJV, a verse many are familiar with says, Train up a child in the way he should go. And when he is older he will not depart from it. In essence, we are be ing instructed to create an environment for life allowing the child to breathe while also providing boundaries for his safety mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Watch for his strengths, gifts, abilities and interests. Guide him along the path of life and fulllment for which he has been created. How do children see us? Are we foreboding, keeping them at arms length? Do our faces speak condemnation? Or, like Jesus, do we have open arms and countenances that encourage children to trust, ask questions and tell stories and jokes a welcoming presence for them? In speaking on the inheritance we leave our childrenand actually all children who come to know us, a pastor once said, Be the older people that young people want to be around bringing a blessing Gods hope to their lives. Children energize me with the wonder in their eyes, the excite ment over the smallest thing. They also tug at my heart when sadness lurks in the shadows of their eyes or when smiles dont come easily. They need adults whom they want to be around. Be a friend of children. SelahJan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.A friend to children Jan MeropPAUSE & CONSIDER BEIJING Chinese Catholics on Friday cheered Pope Francis visit to neighboring South Korea, saying they hoped his trip to their region would help end the estrangement between Beijing and the Vatican. But in a sign that the decades-long ChinaVatican drama still has its glitches, the Vatican acknowledged that a tele gram of greetings sent by Francis to the Chinese leadership apparently never arrived. The Vatican sent the telegram from Francis chartered Alitalia plane as it entered Chinese airspace early Thursday, following Vatican protocol that calls for the pope to send such greetings whenever he ies over a foreign country. Such telegrams usually go unnoticed. But the gesture took on unique signicance because the Vatican and China have no diplomatic relations and therefore no ofcial contacts and because Beijing had refused to let St. John Paul II y through its airspace when he visited South Korea in 1989. But the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Friday it appeared the telegram never arrived. Chinas embassy to Italy asked the Holy See for a copy of the telegram, saying it hadnt received it. A copy was immediately provided to the embassy, he said. It happens that maybe when you send a telegram by a ying plane there are some problems in receiving it, Lombardi said, adding that he understood the telegram is actually sent by the pilot to the air trafc control tower, which then is responsible for relaying it onto the correct destination. But in any case, the telegram has arrived now. It surely has arrived. Despite the glitch, Chinas Foreign Ministry responded to reports of the telegram with a statement Thursday saying it remained committed to establishing a constructive dialogue and improving ties. However, Chinas entirely state-run media imposed a virtual news blackout on the visit, ensuring the public at large would know little about Francis activities. In another sign of Beijings continuing ambivalence toward relations with the Holy See, reports said ofcials were preventing some Chinese Catholics and clergy from taking part in the activities in South Korea under threat of reprisals. On Friday, Catholic laypeople and priests who ocked to a Mass at Beijings oldest church said they felt closer to the pope. All expressed hopes for a papal visit in the not-too-distant future. I believe this is a step forward in advancing communication, said the Rev. Mathew Zhen Xuebin, secretary general of the Beijing diocese. We have hope that one day the two countries of China and the Vatican will establish diplomatic ties and that the pope will be able to visit China. China severed relations with the Holy See in 1951 after the ofcially atheistic Communist Party took power and set up its own church outside the popes authority. China persecuted the church for years until restoring a degree of religious freedom and freeing imprisoned priests in the late 1970s. Relations have been tense over Beijings demand that it have the right to appoint bishops, even those unacceptable to the Vatican. The Holy See says that key prerogative belongs to it alone and the disagreement tops the list of those blocking reconciliation. In a telling sign that Francis is toeing a very delicate political line with China, he artfully dodged a question posed to him Friday by a young man from Hong Kong about what could be done to help the faithful in mainland China. The question was one of several posed to the pope during an informal gathering in Solmoe, South Korea, where young Catholics from across the region were gathered for an Asian Catholic youth festival. Lombardi noted that the pope himself said he wouldnt answer all the questions posed to him. This was obviously one, Lombardi said, adding that the pope clearly didnt want to cloud a very pastoral event with any overtly political messages.China Catholics cheer popes South Korea visitBY CHRISTOPHER BODEENASSOCIATED PRESS RELIGION so long empowerment in every area of life.
