BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING If you thought the Tour of Sebring brings a lot of cyclists to Highlands County every year, just wait: This year could break the record of 600. Last year had 516 riders, said Bob Bennett, co-director of the bike events. So far, 417 have signed up for the Labor Day weekend event, and with good weather, they could have 30 percent of their riders walk in that weekend instead of pre-registering. Its way up there in recent years, Bennett said. Now in its 32nd year, the Tour of Sebring is already one of the states biggest bicycle rides, a trait Bennett attributes to good sight lines, lower traf c and friendly motorists. The event is hosted by both Highlands Pedalers and Kenilworth Lodge. The vast majority are courteous and careful around us, Bennett said. One reason people come here is because its a relatively friendly place to be. The scenic countryside is another reason. Riders have their pick of four routes each day, from 2030 miles up to 62 miles (called a metric century) and 100 miles (called a century). Rides leave about 10 Tour of Sebring could set record Courtesy photoRecreational riders head out en masse on Arbuckle Creek Road during the 2013 Tour of Sebring cycling event.

Since the marque made its rst appearance at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1956, Corvette has racked up an impressive list of wins with an equally notable list of drivers. It culminated in 2012 as Corvette was inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame. More recently, Corvette has been the of cial pace car of Americas Oldest Sports Car Endurance Race, leading more laps around the storied 3.72mile circuit than many of the top contenders. The past couple of days, the National Corvette Caravan has been camped out at the track, with more than 100 different participants taking parade laps and hot laps around the circuit. Its the Florida kickoff party, said caravan spokeswoman Carrie Delon. We rented the track for the entire day on Tuesday. Katara Simmons/News-SunMore than 100 Corvettes spent Tuesday at Sebring International Raceway and were planned to drive through Sebring at 7 a.m. this morning on their way to Kentucky.SEE 100 | A6 :4,ycZ !r .1a oween PartyM, 7W..41_VM'IVcY/ IFAMUI .c\6 SFe 9jo,>r0 fl SefrizgMANIA5mber Conc

He is collecting signatures on a petition that he will send to Pigman.I know school buses are a big sore spot for bullying.Bobbie Bean anti-bulling advocate BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER AVON PARK Now that hes spoken to people in Highlands County, Bobbie Bean wants to speak to members of the Flor ida Legislature about having sev er al security cameras on school buses B ean spoke at the senior center on Sebring Parkway, and was told 500 people come thr ough there every week during the winter resident season. If thats true, he hopes he can get enough signatures on petitions to convince Representative Cary Pigman to sponsor an amendment to Flori das anti-bullying law. M y goal is to tighten up on the bully law, B ean said. It may take many years. It might be a stretch, Bean said. He knows Pigman is already sponsoring a full slate of bills this session, so adding one would mean foregoing an other. S till, B ean hopes to make his case in favor of requiring more than one camera and strong protocols for retaining and cataloging video records, especially af ter an incident. I kno w school buses are a big sore spot for bullying, Bean said. Thats because his son, Matthew then 14 boarded his school bus at 7:45 / a.m. Sept. 3, 2002, and was in a local emergency room approximately three hours later, suf fering from internal bleeding fr om being repeatedly hit in the head by another student. The family eventually learned through their son and his brother that the incident start ed on the bus. N o one could tell me who the (security) tape belongs to after an incident, Bean said. Ofcials with the Highlands Coun ty Sheriffs Ofce and S tate A ttorneys Ofce also told Bean at the time that the alleged assailant had already been processed thr ough the system, charged with a misdemeanor and suspended for ve days. H is son had to be hospitalized and still suffers post-traumatic stress disorder, Bean said. B ean said the stress caused he and his wife to divorce. He lives apart from his family, but hopes to keep ghting bully ing and its effects on childr en, families and communities.

www.newssun.comWednesday, August 27, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher Scott Dressel Editor VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSWe are only days away from the ofcial end of summer. The three-day Labor Day weekend kicks off Saturday and the News-Sun and News-Journal urge caution on several fronts. We dont want to play the role of pessimist or be seen as overly cautious, but Labor Day brings with it certain challenges. Take extra care when traveling, of course. Highway safety statistics al ways point to higher numbers of traf c accidents, injuries and deaths on long holiday w eekends More time to play gives people more time to make a bad decision and get behind the wheel when they shouldnt. That same caution extends to the water. More than 100 named lakes in the county means we have that many opportunities to make the most of rec reation on and in the water. That, too, brings r isk. We have escaped an entire summer without a drowning death (knock on wood) and were within range of closing the summer season on a positive note. Simple rules ap ply: if youre boating, make certain ev eryone aboard has a life preserver and obeys the basic r ules of boating safety ; and if youre swimming, never swim alone, keep an eye on fellow swim mers, be alert for signs of distress. The sw eltering heat of late August keeps many of us indoors until eve ning when the sun starts to set in the west and the ther mometer starts to fall. Late evening strolls and leisurely time on the porch or patio are favorite pasttimes once the grueling near100-degree temperatures fall back to the balmy low 80s. But those much-more-comfortable evening hours are when mosquitos typically swarm. And that means one more reason to be on guard. High lands County Health Department of cials reported the rst local case of Chikungunya fev er this w eek. Report edly, an unnamed 67-year-old Lake P lacid man contr acted the mosquitoborne disease on a recent trip to the Dominican Republic. Chikungunya fever is rarely fatal. That cant be said of the West Nile vi rus, and three chickens in central Flor ida have tested positive for the potentially fatal disease. H ealth ofcials say the best people can do is to take normal precautions against mosquito bites. The best ad vice includes covering the skin with clothing or r epellent and dr aining standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. It only takes a small amount of standing water to create a breeding place for mosquitos. Were not saying all this to make you stay inside and miss out on the Labor Day weekend fun. We just want you to as Sgt. Phil Esterhaus warned on every episode of Hill Street Blues way back in the prehistoric 1980s be careful out there.Glen Nickerson President J oO IN THE C ON vV ER SA tT I oO NLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

Scott said the state will pay to have law ofcers in the schools. Now Highlands County should have a county campus police department. The peo ple would be trained at the same place the deputies ar e but they would concentrate on juvenile law and juvenile crimes. They would not need other tr aining that the deputies get, like felons, trafc enforcement, domestic violence, etc. They could be paid less than deputies By creating the campus police department it would free up the depu ties and city police ofcers to be put on patrol and per for m the duties they were trained for instead of being in school all day This would be a benet to the sheriff and city police also the r esidents of Highlands C ounty and cost less for the school board. If a felony occurred in school, a deputy could be called to handle it.JOHN TU tT HILL SebringSo Friday evening I did what I normally do when Im bored out of my mind. I took a peek at my Facebook page. Lo and behold, Vickie Watson, one of our sales reps, had issued me an ice bucket challenge. Little did she know, but I had already de cided a couple of weeks earlier that if someone issued a challenge to me, I would not be a willing participant. Mostly because if Im going to donate I will do so on my o wn and without fanfare. I acknowledged the challenge and moved on still not intending to participate, but willing to sit down and write a check. Then Saturday morning I talked to Lisa Hicks Waggoner to get the sto ry about her challenge in memory of her dad, Cly de It wasnt just a challenge that she made, but one that was also made b y her emplo yees and several of her family and friends. I heard the passion in her voice and listened closely to how she described her dads life in those last two y ears after being diagnosed with ALS. It wasnt until then that I actually considered doing the ice bucket challenge Then M onday morning, after I had set a plan in motion to do the challenge, I learned from one of my very dear est fr iends that her brother-inlaw had passed away from ALS the night before. There was no backing down now. I had already told Vickie that since she had issued the challenge, she would have to be the one to dump the ice water on me. Despite her pleading me to not make her do it, I stepped to her desk Monday afternoon at about 4:55 / p .m. and asked her where she wanted me to go. She grudgingly went to get a big bowl of water and ice and joined me out in front of the ofce. As we started, I ex plained my position all of it. I explained ho w I was tempted to walk away and not look back but because of Lisas story and the loss in Missys family, I stepped up to the challenge O nly a few seconds into the explanation, Mitch Collins tells me he doesn t think the phone is recording anything so we switch phones and complete the challenge. Well, guess what, my phone was re cording the challenge, but when we switched to M itch s phone, his didnt record anything. So, theres no proof that I fullled my end of the challenge. There were several witnesses, so youll just have to take my word for it. Ill end this column in the same way I did the video. I challenge all of my Facebook friends to accept the challenge and make a donation. If not to ALS, to the charity of their choice. And Ill make it one better. You dont have to tell anyone about it. After all, thats the way were supposed to give ... with a loving heart (Phillipians 2:3). ALS isnt the only group that will benet from my ice bucket chal lenge, but at least I can say I stepped u p.Romona Washington is publisher and exec utive editor of the New-Sun and News-Jour nal.

The bikes are out of town within 30 min utes and then dont sho w back up ex cept in little groups on their return. The roads we ride, once we get out of town, theres not so much trafc, Bennett said. Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr said the cy clists regulate themselves very well. P olice ofcers hav e recently done some inhouse training with ofcers on bicycle trafc laws Ofcers alr eady knew the laws, Carr said, but its good to have refresher courses. What Carr wants to remind all motorists, and cyclists whether part of Tour of Sebring or running errands on two wheels motor ists should regard bicycles as vehicles, and bicy cles should act like v ehicles. That includes signaling turns and stops, obeying trafc control devices signs and lights and going with the o w of tr afc on the righthand side of the road. Bennett said Tour of Sebring cyclists already know these rules, but its good to remind people, just in case. TOUR FROM PAGE A A 1northbound U.S. 27 causing him to swerve his silver 2003 Jaguar sedan into a turn lane, hit a curb, enter the southbound lane and strike a silver 2001 Ford Focus sedan head-on The impact sent the Focus airborne moving violently back and forth, like when a sailsh is caught in the ocean and jumps out of the water, accord ing to one witness. The F ocus landed on the southbound shoulder in the driveway for Lake J ackson C ondos. Francis Gero, 58, died almost instantly behind the wheel. H is wife, Barbara, 54, died two days later at Lakeland Regional Medical C enter Two other southbound cars hit the Jaguar, spinning it around, but C arr said G oldstein originally told police the cause of the wreck was an unkno wn northbound car a minivan or small sportutility vehicle that cut him off. Police were unable to locate that car, but have now found that vehicle at fault for the wreck. It seems all the wit nesses were distracted or (the wreck) happened too fast to recall if ther e was or wasn t a phantom vehicle, Carr said. So, its an unknown to us. The two other dr iv ers involved in the wreck told police they didnt remember seeing the Ford Focus. Another two southbound driv ers who avoided the wr eck said they saw the Jaguar move fast through the turn lane, not slowing down, as it entered the southbound lanes. None of the southbound witnesses saw another nor thbound car with the Jaguar. Carr said Goldsteins phone records showed he was not texting or talking on the phone when the wreck occurred at 12:57 / p.m. Oct. 31, 2013. B lood tests also came back clean, with no alcohol or drugs in his system. A request for his lifetime driving record also sho w ed he had never had a citation issued to him, according to the nal r epor t. Police had hoped to get some useful infor mation from the Jaguars onboard engine contr ol module but it took until late March before police could nd an information technology expert who could download the data, Carr said. They then had to send that data to the Jaguar com pany in the United K ingdom to be trans lated. I t was tr anslated by early summer, but had no useful information, Carr said. WRECK FROM PAGE A A 1As part of the activities, drivers received tr ack instr uction from Skip Barber Racings Terry Earwood, with 12 Hours winner Andy Pilgrim giving hot lap tours of the 17-turn airport road course throughout Tuesday af ternoon.

I ts just a few of us this time for dinner at Lowes, he said. The fare will be widely varied, with the different vendors exer cising their specialties. F eatur ed will be bar becue as well as Amer ican, Puerto Rican and ev en F ilipino cuisine. Participants will include the F amous F lames BBQ, Sazon Boriqua, Northern Xposure, Good Aah and, of course the Loa n Around Cafe. B utcher said the r ally came together from some of his fr iends in the local food truck business looking for a place to gather and have a singular event. They all have ap proached me at one time or another and said Hey, lets put something together, he said. Butcher said he is willing to bring in outof-county vendors, but said there are plenty of operators here locally. Actually, there are 13 li censed food trucks or tr ailers in H ighlands County, but not all of them operate on a fulltime basis. As the series continues he hopes to include more. W ell do anoth er one here in front of Lo w es on Oct. 11. Then on Oct. 18 we will do one over in front of Petco. The money we raise there will go to help pet rescue and adoption, he said Butcher said the Lowes management embraced the idea of bringing more people onto their property. The general manag er told me his previous stor e had a food tr uck event every week and it was quite successful, Butcher said. This rst event will feature some familiar names as well as some of the vendors people have seen but may not have had a chance to sample. Many people know James Browns Fa mous Flames Barbecue from his location on East Cor nell Street in Avon Park. Butcher said he also has a popular mobile kitchen. H ell have chicken and ribs; even some rib burgers, Butcher said. Northern Xposure is a new food wagon, featuring fresh, less processed foods. Owners Larr y and Donna Williams said they cut and br ead their o wn onion rings, chicken tender strips and mozzarella sticks. Their fries ar e fr esh, hand cut and made with Idaho potatoes. They also make lighter far e such as fresh tossed salads, chicken speidi or shr imp Good Aah, owned and operated by Sebring resident Lim S hong G i, is a vendor featuring both Ameri can and Filipino fare. Ther e ar e wings and babyback ribs, as well as lechon kawali, lechon paksiw, dinuguan, beef kaldereta, o xtail kar e-kare and spring rolls. Reportedly, it took a bit of doing to get all the vendors together in the same place at the same time, but once things started to move forward, the schedule came together quickly. Butcher said his partic ipation in the Worlds Lar gest Food Truck Rally had given him insight on how to stage such an ev ent. H e also has stayed in touch with planner Jeremy Gomez, who staged that event in Tampa. He has been guiding me on this one to a de gree, he said. Those wanting mor e information can log into a Facebook page designed both for vendors and customers titled Heartland Food T r ucks.

Not only were they taking the court in full competition mode for the rst time, their opening match was against Suncoast Con ference foe State College of Florida. And the Lady P anthers got a good glimpse of what is to come when the confer ence slate opens And while they suffer ed a 3-0 loss to the Manatees, it wasnt nearly that one sided. They pushed last y ears conference runner up to a 27-25 score in the rst set, and w ere within four in a 25-21, second-set loss, though the third set was a bit more lopsided with a 25-12 score. O ur serve ratio was fantastic and we hung with them defensively, head coach Kim Crawford said. Offensively, though, we were doing a lot of swinging at the ball and it was just a matter of us making a mistake before they did. The difference in attack errors told the stor y as the M anatees committed nine for the match while the Panthers had 27. That last set, w e had a couple athletes that went at and so we started switching people around, Crawford said. It was against a conference team, so we switched our setter and got everyone in to play. It was an awesome match and gives us something to look for ward to in conference. F r eshman Sydney Durham lead the offense with 13 kills for the match and fr eshman K elsey Sanders had 17 assists and four ser vice aces. South Florida evened up their early record by taking a 3-1 win in the nightcap against the host Gyrenes. After romping to a 25-13 win in the open er, the Lady Panthers took a 25-20 win in the second set. A ve Maria then turned the tables in a 25-20, third-set win, but SFSC closed out the match with a 25-23 clincher. Elle Barnett had 10 kills in the match, with Durham adding eight and Breighly Bolton six. The freshman setting duo of Baylee Gunt er and Sanders totaled 30 assists with G unter dishing out 20 and S anders 10.

After recovering their second fumble, Trenton Brown increased the lead to 14-0 on a 30yard run. The Sebring defense battered the Chief quarterback into a third fumble and Davonnie Trent followed with a 30-yard run as Sebring built a 21-0 in the rst quarter. Sebring intercepted the ball to start the sec ond quarter and took their center M ackenzee Rogers, and put her in the backeld. R ogers r esponded by gaining about 21 yards on four consecutive carries. Brown capped off the drive and the rst half with a 36-yard touch down as Sebring went into the inter mission with a 27-0 lead. The second half was a continuation of the rst as Brown scored his third touchdown of the game on a 70-yard run. Trent took a later al from the quarter back for 18 yards and his second touchdo wn to give Sebring a 41-0 lead. The Blue Streaks scored once more on a 30-yard run by Lorenzo Stevenson for the 47-0 win. The win was the rst of the season for the Pee Wee Blue Streaks as they improved their re cord to 1-2. D espite being dominated in the rst thr ee games Vero Beach had their best team in their Juniors and Sebrings faithful knew this game would be a battle. It did not disappoint. Both defenses dom inated with Sebring having a little success on the gr ound. Neither team could sustain any momentum on offense to mount a ser ious thr eat. Vero Beach was condent enough in their defense that they nev er attempted to punt the ball. With the game scoreless and time winding do wn in the rst half, Vero Beach went for it on fourth from their own their own 42 and failed, giving the ball back to Sebring with 2 seconds left. Sebring decided to try to make something happen as they went into a shotgun forma tion. The snap sailed o v er the quarterbacks head and was picked up by Vero Beach and returned 40 yards for the game s only score. The second half was tension lled as the majority of action stayed on the Chiefs side of the eld throughout. With time winding down and Sebring thr eatening, V ero Beach forced a turnover and ran out the clock to hold on to the win, 7-0. The loss was the third for the Junior Blue Streaks ,who are now 0-3 for the season. Sebring is on the road this Saturday to play the Northeast Rattlers.

If you are like me, you probably have two or three of the same items in your kitchens. Recently, I was looking in our kitchen cabinet for something to season some chicken with and discovered that we had three jars of garlic powder and two jars of cumin. After digging deeper, I found two jars of chili akes. This got me thinking about work and our weekly inventory. Each week, I count all the food, paper and chemicals in the kitchen and total each category then compare them to the week before. Food cost is measured by a simple formula: beginning inventory, plus purchase, plus or minus ending inventory, divided by revenue equals the food cost percentage for that week. Lauren and I took an inventory of our kitchen and we realized we had a lot of stuff we had forgotten about in our pantry. We then took that list with us to the market and that was a big help. We were able to plan meals for this week based on the information from the inventory and also cross utilize ingredients. I suggest you do the same in your kitchen. I think you will see how easy it is to buy things you already have and end up with more than one of the same things. This week, I have a coleslaw recipe for you with a twist. Have you ever considered putting blue cheese in your coleslaw? It might sound strange at rst, but give it a try and you might even want to top your next burger or sandwich with it. Cheers, Chef.Blue cheese coleslaw12 cup blue cheese crumbles 4 tbs. fresh chopped Parsley 2 tsp. Grey Poupon Dijon mustard 2 tbs. white vinegar14 tsp. salt14 tsp. black ground pepper 1 quart fresh shredded slaw cabbage 6 tbs. olive/canola oil Preparation method 1.

Yes-yeses for the next week are melon and bananas, and the no-no is chocolate. The secretarys report was read and approved. The treasurers report for the month of July was presented and accepted. Janet Mitchell took home the travel gift and if she loses two more weeks in a row, she gets to keep it. Flinn read a letter from Area Captain Cindy DeWeese, which was encouraging.

It was horrible. I was in shock, and our relationship never recovered. The next four years were a series of court visits for custody of our child and eventually a divorce. Last year, his mother began requesting visits with our son. I was happy about it because I have tried to be accommodating to my ex and his family regarding our son. Finally, late last year, I called my ex to ask if we could sit down and discuss our son (something we had never done). We have met twice during the last two weeks, and each time had long conversations about everything. (Our son, our past, our relationship.) Many misconceptions were cleared up, and its obvious that we both have made many necessary changes within ourselves. Now Im confused about what comes next. Speaking with him has brought back so many feelings. Prior to the attack, our stress levels had been high and our communication was ter rible, but there had been no physical violence. Im not sure if this is the universe giving us an opportunity to give the family we started another chance. Should we start over? WAVERING IN NEW YORK DEAR WAVERING: What comes next might be that you and your ex can become good friends and parent your son in a congenial, cooperative fashion. What comes next might be that you rekindle your romance. Or it might be that you get back together and he assaults you again. If your ex has sought help for his drinking and anger management issues, a reconciliation could work out beautifully. However, if he hasnt, I certainly wouldnt recommend it. Sometimes people can care deeply about each other, but shouldnt be married. DEAR ABBY: My 95-year-old mom feels that her age entitles her to speak without a lter, and she has become totally intolerant and critical. She is mentally sharp and highly intelligent, which makes her nasty comments even more hurtful to family and friends. Standing up to her isnt an option because of her age and she knows it. She doesnt seem to recognize how damaging her attitude has become to those who love her. If you could print this and offer some advice, she might recognize herself. A LOVING SON DEAR LOVING SON: The fact that someone has celebrated 95 birthdays does not give the person license to be deliberately unkind to others. Negativity is an unattractive trait, regardless of how old you are. People who deliber ately say hurtful things invariably nd the circle of those who want to be around them shrinking. My advice to your mother would be, before opening her mouth, ask herself whether what she has to say is true, helpful and kind. And if it isnt all three, she should rephrase her comment or not say it at all. DEAR ABBY: What does one say to casual acquaintances who stop by uninvited and with no prior phone call? NANCY IN AURORA, COLO. DEAR NANCY: Let me tell you rst what one doesnt say. Its Come in! It is perfectly acceptable to explain that the person caught you in the middle of your housework or a project you need to nish and, please, in the future to call before dropping by so you can make some plans together.

Saturday morning, Aug.16, was the omelet breakfast, which everyone enjoyed. It was served with a fruit cup and croissant and of course, coffee. For your omelet you were given a cup and a half of beaten egg in a plastic bag into which you could put the following: chopped onion, pepper, sausage, and cheese and then the plastic bags were dropped into boiling water for 17 minutes. Presto, you had the cutest omelet to put on your plate. This was held in the pretty yard of Judy Muise. Marilyn Cromer and all her efcient helpers put on the meal.

According to the group, they strive to be human angels for animals advocating for their lives, humane treatment, spay and neuter education and responsible ownership. The group of volunteers work day and night to save and place animals, but saving them is only the beginning. Many pets are in foster homes and some have medical issues and the group has to pay for their treatments, provide heartworm medication as well as ea and tick medication. Sebring Angels helps humans, too. The group recently held a drawing for a trip to Las Casitas Village in Puerto Rico to benet Adam Vigue, who has been diagnosed with leukemia. He underwent chemo and is now ready for a transplant that will make him healthy again. Sebring Angels, with the support of a group, held the drawing to help the Vigues defray some of the costs of his medical treatments. The group was able to present Adam a check for $1,550. The winner of the drawing was Linda Stephens, who will be also given $500 toward airfare. Sebring Angels will be having a second drawing for a stay at Las Casitas. The second drawing will benet the Sebring Angels animals, and yet another will benet the Humane Society of Highlands County. If you are interested in adopting or fostering a dog or cat, contact sebringangels@gmail. com or visit Sebring Angels and Sebring Fl Urgents on Facebook. Please visit Sebring Animal Control and the Humane Society of Highlands County. If you are interested in a drawing ticket, they are $10.
