BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING Dozens of cars, drivers and participants are headed for the Sebring International Raceway this weekend. But its not one of the many competitions held at the track throughout the year or even one of the driving schools. This is the time that Kids Racing for Life hits the historic airport circuit. The program is the brainchild of Zoeller Ministries. It brings kids suffering with or recovering from cancer to the track to meet drivers, see race cars and take pace laps around the track. We have 160 in all this year, said Rev. Stephen Zoeller. Thats 85 kids and their parents. The youngsters include both those with cancer and their Kids Racing for Life hits track this weekend at Raceway Kids who are ghting cancer will be allowed to get up close and personal with racing this weekend at Sebring International Raceway as part of the Kids Racing For Life event.SEE KIDS | A6 BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING For the seventh year in a row, community leaders will gather at the Jack Stroup Civic Center in the Alan Altvater cultural complex for the annual Blessing of the Business. The event will be held Sept. 10 beginning noon. Originally started in 2007 as a springtime prayer breakfast by local businessman Steve Slaybaugh, the event was converted to a autumn luncheon in conjunction with the Sebring centennial celebration and has remained in that time slot ever since. We really started it at the beginning of the recession, Slaybaugh said. Mayor George Hensley came to those events and was a big supporter. He was the one who took it to a luncheon when Sebring had its centennial. Since that time, a loose-knit volunteer committee has come together to help plan and stage the event, which features music, a keynote speaker and several ongoing prayer sessions. It is a great opportunity to bring together the business community and local faith-based organizations, Hensley said. Prayer makes a difference in everybodys lives. The idea actually originated in Destin, where each May they celebrate the Blessing of the BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING Despite reports that property taxes could stay at the current rate, county commissioners said Tuesday they are looking to set millage at 8.55. The proposed hike could bring in $6.23 million more revenue, but doesnt have universal support. Commissioners will discuss the matter at a public hearing set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Government Center, 600 S. Commerce Ave. in Sebring. The current property tax is $7.10 per $1,000 of taxable income, while the certi ed property tax set prior to budget hearings for scal year 2014-15 was $9 per $1,000 taxable income. Commissioner Jim Brooks said his house lost half its value in the last few years, and theres no sign property values will come back up soon. We could get in trouble if we go for the minimum amount, Brooks said. However, Commissioner Don Elwell thought its too early to consider an increase that would hit residents, small businesses and agriculture. Our economy has not bounced back yet, said Elwell, who proposed making the leap to a slightly lower $8.25 rate instead with the understanding taxes might go up again next year. That would give us a two-and-a-half month rainy-day fund.Businesses to be blessed for seventh year next week The seventh Blessing of the Businesses will be held Sept. 10 at the Jack Stroup Civic Center.County to discuss 8.55 millagePublic hearing on proposed property tax rate Thursday ELWELLSEE BLESS | A6SEE MILLAGE | A7 BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING County commissioners approved three recreation/tourism related projects presented at Tuesdays meeting including a tness trail at Max Long Recreational Complex and a new picnic pavilion at Veterans Beach. Commissioners approved $17,734 in partnership with the city of Sebring and the Highlands County Family YMCA to have a new pavilion at Veterans Beach and a tness trail at the YMCA, respectively. Board Chairman Greg Harris abstained from voting, as CEO of the YMCA. The funds came from $16,581 in impact fees and $1,046 in infrastructure funds for recreation. Parks and Natural Resources Director Vicki Pontius said from those funds, $11,275 would go to construct the pavilion and $6,459 for materials for the trail. She said amounts would uctuate while the county is earning interest on the funds. Dave Sheck, program director at the YMCA, said volunteers including himself would build the trail of exercise stations.

Commercial s hermen and miners come im mediately to mind. Ther e is another job in the top 10 of anxiety producing work that we too of ten overlook: The school bus driver. You tr y maintaining a schedule with a bus loaded with students, some very young and frightened; some in middle school testing how far they can push an adult toward insanity; and high school students who live in their own world, believing they know best. Many chil dren of all ages almost have to be sta pled into their seats. K eeping or der in the bus, while keep ing the bus on the road, is not work for the faint of hear t. S tudents get into conversations, fall asleep or otherwise miss their stop. Other students get off at the wrong stop, or get on the wrong bus. This is especially true on the opening days of school, particularly among the very young who are riding a bus for the rst time. Every year there are stories of parents terried when their child doesnt ap pear at the right place at the right time. This doesn t include dealing with the unexpected. For example, recently a bus driver pulled up to a stop only to see two ag gressive dogs which immediately be gan to circle the bus. Wisely, the driver did not open the doors or let any children off the bus. The dogs owner came r unning and her ded the dogs into their kennel. The incident, however, put the bus behind schedule. Fortunate ly, parents in this case appreciated the dr iv ers good sense, calling the school board to commend her action. Much more often, its the school bus driver who catches the ak from these scary moments, when, in fact, the re sponsibility is a shared one. Par ents need to be at their childs bus stop on time, and be sure their children understand both school bus etiquette, and the landmarks for their stop. Schools too, bear some responsibility although anyone who observes bus es loading after school may legitimate ly wonder what can be done. Which br ings us to the The School Board of Highlands County. We ask the members to brainstorm for a bus poli cy to make children safer to be put into place at least until the childr en ar e fa miliar with their route, the bus drivers can identify each child by face and name and the teachers loading the buses learn who goes where. This does not have to be complicat ed or time consuming, in fact, it should not. U sing a sharpie to write the cor rect bus number on the back of a child s hand has been used in the past. Name tags with name and bus number would also be useful for the teachers and drivers who are tasked with sort ing children onto the correct buses.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.

B ill was my boss for 19 years as I taught at WMA from 1991 to 2010. During that time, I saw him in stressful times, relaxed times and most things in between. Since learning of B ill s death last week, I realized that outside of my immediate family, I have spent more time with him than any other person in my life. We chaperoned trips together. There were basketball triple-head ers of a JV boys game, a v arsity girls game and a boys varsity game. There were school staff meetings, open houses, picnics and in-service meetings. There were also birthdays, holidays, weddings and funerals. I cannot ever re member Bill uttering a curse wor d or telling me a suggestive joke. Oh, he would sigh at the thought of another committee meeting or vent a bit at some cr iticism lev eled at the school. Yet he did a great job of keeping his cool through it all and he did an even better job of staying focused on kids. Two and sometimes three afternoons a week, he would be on the softball eld or in the gym with kids. He was the all-time pitcher or the organizer of pickup basketball games. He was Goliath at my daughters kindergar ten graduation and had to persuade a ner v ous 5-year-old that it was okay to slay the principal. H e sat in the dunking booth at the school car nival and he auctioned off baked goods to help seniors r aise money. He went on eighth-grade class trips to Washington D.C, senior class tr ips to N ew York and Central America and music trips across Flor ida and once to Puerto Rico H e also loved candy. When the bus had to stop for gas or a bathroom break, he was buying M&M s along with the kids. He loved shing and he loved the trips to the beach. He loved the Cincinnati Reds, later the Boston R ed S ox and the Orlando Magic. H e lo ved his job. You saw it when you were greeted with a smile in his ofce. You saw it when he talked with a class about his hero, Abraham Lincoln. You saw it when he laughed with a group of high school students. Bills talents as a teacher and adminis trator had been recognized quickly. He had ser v ed as a principal of Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) schools in Ohio and he could have easily moved up the ladder to super intendent position or an education pr ofessor at one of the SDA colleges. Yet that was not his goal. He told me once that he came to Florida to a smaller school to have more time to spend with his family. I want ed to have time to play catch with my son and see my kids gr ow up, he told me. So WMA was blessed to have a talented administrator and Bill felt blessed to be ther e too His family was a vital part of the school. His wife, Walda, taught a class and oversaw the school computer net work in addition to a full-time job H is three children all attended WMA and have found various ways to help out at school. From the time I rst came to Avon Park, Bill and Walda would open their home to staff and their families on Thanksgiving. The combination of fantastic food, pick-up games of softball, touch football and basketball were like heav en for a 13y ear old in the words of my son. It is difcult to imagine another principal wanting to spend his holiday with a house full of kids. Yet, Bills love for kids never waned. His grin would spread under that mustache and soon ther e would be a laugh. Bill and kids just always went together and both Bill and the kids w er e both better for it.John Bedell is a former News-Sun correspondent. Farmer was a blessing for all who knew him GUEST COLUMNJohn Bedell Courtesy photoBill Farmer, principal of Walker MM emorial Academy, died Friday morning after a brief illness. RR emember w ho we areBefore we start quaking in our boots and hiding under the bed at the prospect of some ISIS member with an Amer ican passpor ts coming home and doing G od kno ws what, we should remember that we have once before faced an enemy who killed and beheaded prisoners. We are the descendants of a proud tradition and before we cringe in fear and buy into the tired ru bric of we must ght them ther e so w e dont have to ght them here or some other equally invalid slogan to justify inappropriate action, we should car efully consider the options av ailable to the U.S. in conducting its for eign affairs and the long term effects of our actions. While ISIS demonstrates a level of organization greater than other jihadist groups, they are still just a jihadist group, their con tention of a caliphate not withstanding. W e should neither overestimate nor underestimate an opponent nor be provoked into a course of action not of our choosing. The beheading of one American reporter is a horrible atrocity, yet it should not be the pre cipitant that propels this countr y into another militar y incursion into the middle east without any longr ange objective and without a careful analysis of all of the possible implications of any course of action w e might take It is the United States not ISIS that has a great many options available. Twice we have jumped, Iraq and Afghanistan, without any clear objec tive nor any understanding of the possible long ter m consequences on Americas standing in the world. Some patience and thoughtful planning will better serve our inter ests than being provoked into action not in our long ter m interests.RANDY LUDACE rR Lake Placid Lets not make a hard job harder . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .....................................r T. tIsSIL. isls UPAiRW

All will get a chance to ride the track and participate in all the events over the three days. The families are being housed at the Kenilworth Lodge, a favorite of many of the dr iv ers who come to Sebring for Sports Car Club of America and other club events. They have been really good to us through the y ears , he said. Other sponsors include the Olive Gar den, Taylor Rental and Pizzano s Pizza. The event begins with a pool and pizza party at the Kenilworth Lodge and a S atur day evening banquet featuring music fr om popular local DJ Rooter Rush. It winds up Sunday at the Raceway. The kids just lo ve Rooter, Zoeller said. A lot of them have been with us more than once and that is always one question they ask: Will Rooter be there? Zoeller said there are two things he is look ing for to augment this y ear s program. One would be a couple of local families who would like to participate. I t has been hard to nd families from that area who can join us, he said. Zoeller pointed to medical privacy laws as a major stumbling block to nding youngsters here who might come for the w eekend. To qualify, they should either be in cancer tr eatment or have nished such treatment within the past year. While youngsters and their families come from all over the state of Florida to en joy the weekend, drivers and cars come fr om as far away as Ohio to show off their vehicles and give the kids a chance to experience racing at speed. Last y ear we had, like, 65 cars here, he said. It was a total blast. One other thing Zoeller wished for is a bit of help on Sunday afternoon. When its over we need to take down all the decorations and clean up at the Hall of Fame where we have our headquarters, he said.

Hensley said it was an important thing to have the community pause and pray for the needs of the business community, especially in these economically challenging times. I dont think most people see the connec tion between God and business Slaybaugh said. But the Bible is full of good business practices morali ty, honesty and those kinds of things Many local pastors and other church ofcials have been sought out to be par t of the program to serve as table captains. Table captains really are responsible for making cer tain ev ery one at the table introduces themselves. They also lead the gr oup in corporate prayer, Hensley said. That involves prayer for all those present and their business es as well as any other pr ay er requests that are made. Private sessions will be available following the event, if there are those who want individual prayer. W e also have pastors who have offered to visit businesses and pr ay at the site and with the employees if that is requested, Slaybaugh said. Members of the Jer icho Prayer Team will hold a focused pr ay er time in a separate room. They offer intercessory prayer for the program and the people in attendance Hens ley said. Hensley said a gr eat deal of attention has been giv en to making cer tain that the event sticks to the onehour format. Food will be provided by Chef Mac of the P alms Music will be provided both by Rev. Dustin Woods and the Women of Wings of Faith. A Facebook page titled Blessing of the Businesses has been es tablished not only to coor dinate the annual event but also to highlight other issues and ev ents of inter est to the business and faith com munity.

County, and childhood obesity, more than 20 percent locally. The county would mow the trail, he said, but YMCA members would maintain it and all county residents could use it. Commissioners ap proved a $70,464 project to put a new hardwood oor in the Avon P ar k Recreation Center at 207 E. State St. The city would pay $40,464, with the county picking up $30,000. M ar ia Sutherland, city administrative ser vices director, said the curr ent oor is not dur able enough to withstand use for basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, tness summer kids activities and the occasional hurr icane shelter Plans are for a dense hardwood maple oor, suspended not bolted to the concrete, she said. Bill Youngman, county resident, asked why the county would do this when it already helps the city with $110,000 per year to maintain the building. Why give them 30,000 more dollars? It looks like were double dipping, Youngman said. Commissioner Don Elwell said the city could argue replacing the oor is not normal annual maintenance. As long as the county doesnt have to main tain the oor, he was OK with it. S utherland said the city would monitor the types of shoes used on the oor and keep it maintained. She said recreation center use is 60 percent city and 40 percent county resi dents, becoming 50-50 in the summer P ontius also recommended the county spend $10,000 in T our ist Development Council funds and $2,000 from the Flor ida Boating Improvement Fund on a oating dock at Lake Childs in Lake P lacid. S he said lake levels uctuate four to eight feet each year. A volunteer told us that a lot of people had difculty getting in and out of boats, Pon tius said. H.L. B ishop P ark and Windy Point Park both have similar docks. Since it would have a big impact on win ter residents and shing tournaments, Pontius said tourism funds w er e more appropriate. C ommissioner R on Handley worried the stationary part of the dock could be under water part of the year, and get slipper y with mold growth. I have no issue with you doing it, but look at your design. It doesnt sound safe, Handley said. Pontius said the county would pressure wash the docks and said she would wel come Handleys exper tise as a contractor. B ill Y oungman, county resident, said he built a oating dock himself, and it didnt costs $12,000. He warned that the coun ty might run into problems if prefabricated docks don t meet state standards, such as having 2 feet of water under them.

Using surplus funds and budget cuts the county whittled it to to $9.5 million. Each $1 incr ease per $1,000 taxable v alue would net another $4.3 million in r evenue, Elwell said. While he said the tax incr ease on a $100,000 home might not amount to much, it would add up with all the other incr eas es residents are seeing, along with those whose incomes hav e decr eased. In the same vein, Elwell also spoke out against a r equest b y County Administrator June Fisher to consider a 2.26 percent cost-ofliving increase for staff. It would cost the coun ty $159,744 per each 1 per cent incr ease, she said, or $361,202 to fund the full request. Elwell was in favor of a lower rate, also because of the impact to r esidents There are people out there paying taxes that have lost jobs or had a pay cut and doing the job of two or thr ee people to stay emplo yed, Elwell said. Fisher said a couple of county employees are at the top of their pay scale, and suggest ed adjusting the scale to allo w an incr ease. Elwell said he didnt want to see that idea moved forward until the county comes up with a plan co v er the cost of those pay scales. Ray Royce, executive director of Highlands County Citrus Growers, expressed concern that citrus growers could see a tax increase just when citrus land is be ing taxed more. O ne of of the few categories of taxable value that continues to increase is citrus property, Royce said, saying the increase has been much as 7-8 percent. Im a realist. I understand it s going to go up. I hope that you will be able to keep it in the 8.3 range, he said. Any more taxes could have a negative impact on citrus and other ag ricultural endeavors, he said, ev en with losses fr om citrus greening.

I n a rst for Florida and possibly the nation, Lee County voted last week not to administer tests tied to the C ommon C ore academic standards or any end-of-course exams The vote came after parents organized petitions, Facebook groups and meetings in fav or of scaling back or getting rid of standardized testing. P eople said, Enough is enough, said Bob Schaeffer, education director for the National Center for Fair and O pen T esting, which endorsed the opt-out vote. The volume of standardized testing has exploded out of control. But the decision was met with immediate backlash: Superinten dent Nancy Graham war ned the opt-out could hurt students and asked the board to change its vote. The Florida School Boards Association cautioned that students who didnt take the states standardized tests wouldnt meet the re quirements to earn a standard high school diploma, and also could miss the oppor tunity to earn college cr edit. O n Tuesday, the Lee County school board voted 3-2 in favor of resuming testing before a packed r oom of mor e than 200 people. Board member Mary Fisher, who cast the deciding vote, said she changed her mind because she felt the district needed a more focused plan. Many in the audience made a thumbs-down motion and one man extended his middle nger toward the board as Fisher announced her vote. We made the right decision at the time, Fisher said after the vote. We will minimize the testing. We will look at what we are doing as a district. Parents who had ad vocated for the optout expr essed disappointment but v owed to continue pushing for few er tests. All of us worked all of the long three-day weekend and will continue doing it, said Lor i F ayhee, a parent and leader of a group called Teaching Not Testing. The events in Lee County, located in Flor idas southwest cor ridor, were a sort of touchstone to a gr o wing sentiment among par ents in many par ts of the country. They believe children are given too many tests at the pr ice of a narrowing curriculum and providing a less-than-comprehensive viewpoint of a student s achievements. The number of federally mandated tests has incr eased since N o Child Left Behind was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2002. While pr eviously students were r equir ed to be tested once in elementary, middle and high school, N o Child Left Behind requires annual assessments to determine prociency in math and r eading. I n some states, additional a standardized tests are given in other subjects to ev aluate teachers who do not instr uct E nglish or math. In response, a number of districts have passed r esolutions calling for standardized testing to be rolled back, but Lee C ounty appeared to be the rst to opt out altogether. Supporters said they received hundreds of emails and phone calls from people around the country wanting to know how they could follow suit. There is now a dis connect between public opinion and policymaker behavior, Schaeffer said. F or going the tests, however, carries a number of consequences: Districts could be at r isk of losing state and feder al funding. The tests also are also used to evaluate a wide range of cr iter ia, from whether a student should advance to the next grade to whether a lo w-per for ming school is improving. W e all know that there are downsides to standardized testing, that there have been some unintended consequences, but say ing that we should stop testing entir ely that we shouldnt even provide information to the public about r esults is a very radical idea, said Michael Petrilli, president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, a Washingtonbased think tank P etr illi said he did not expect to see many more districts following Lees initial decision. I think you might see some other sym bolic actions form school boar ds ar ound the country, Petrilli said. B ut at the end of the day as long as they need the funding and the public is demanding information about ho w schools ar e per forming, I think were going to see distr icts administering the test. SETH BORENSTEIN AP S SCIENCE WRITER WASHINGTON Remember the polar vortex, the huge mass of Ar ctic air that can plunge much of the U.S. into the deep freeze? You might have to get used to it. A new study says that as the world gets warmer, parts of North America, Europe and Asia could see more frequent and stronger visits of that cold air. Researchers say thats because of shrinking ice in the seas off Rus sia. N or mally, the polar vortex is penned in the Arctic. But at times it escapes and wanders south, bringing with it a bit of Arctic super chill. That can happen for several reasons, and the new study sug gests that one of them occurs when ice in nor thern seas shrinks, leaving more water uncovered. N or mally, sea ice keeps heat energy from escaping the ocean and entering the atmosphere. When theres less ice mor e ener gy gets into the atmosphere and weakens the jet stream, the high-altitude r iv er of air that usually keeps Arctic air from wander ing south, said study co-author J in-Ho Yoon of the Pacic Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington. So the cold air escapes instead. That happened r elativ ely infrequently in the 1990s but since 2000 it has happened nearly every year, according to a study published Tuesday in the jour nal N ature Communications. A team of scientists fr om South Korea and Unit ed States found that many such cold outbreaks happened a few months after unusually lo w sea ice levels in the Barents and Kara seas, off Russia. The study observed historical data and then conducted computer simulations. Both approaches showed the same str ong link betw een shrinking sea ice and cold outbreaks, according to lead author B aek-M in Kim, a research scientist at the K or ea Polar Research Institute. A large por tion of sea ice melting is dr iv en by man-made climate change from the burning of fossil fuels, Kim wrote in an email. Sea ice in the Arc tic usually hits its low mar k in S eptember and thats the crucial time point in terms of this study, said Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boul der, Colorado. Levels r eached a r ecord low in 2012 and are slightly up this year, but only tempor ar ily, with minimum ice extent still about 40 per cent belo w 1970s levels, he said. Y oon said that although his study fo cused on shrinking sea ice something else was evidently responsible for last years chilly visit from the polar vor tex. I n the past sev er al years, many studies hav e looked at the acceler ated warming in the Ar ctic and whether it is connected to ex treme weather farther south, fr om heatwav es to Superstorm Sandy. This Arctic-extremes connection is cutting edge science that is hotly debated by main stream climate scientists, Serreze said.Study links polar vortex chills to melting sea ice The Last ExpensiveFuneral I Ionic in Polk('our)tv' is ofletim, thesame -veal services inHill-hlands Cuunly *Loul'Full Service BurialIncludes: All Services.('askct & VaultPa\ \our RcshcclsNot 'our Life Savints('rematoiw on premises.Phone 24 Hours RuiIv(863) 669-1617\N \N vv.casketstore.nct'090 fast Pdge ood I)r.Lakeland.

The Bucs acquired the six-time Pro Bowl guard in exchange for tight end Tim Wright and a 2015 fourthround draft choice and are counting on Mankins to make a dif ference on their struggling offensive line. The 32-y ear -old became available after he and the P atr iots were unable to restructure a contract that pays him $6.25 million this season. The B ucs w ere grateful to get an accomplished veteran they expect to lear n the playbook quickly and continue to perform at a high level. When someone invests in you, I dont kno w if ev eryone feels this way, but myself, I dont want to disap point them, Mankins said. I want to be the player they think theyre getting. The Bucs will open the season next Sunday against defending NFC South champion Carolina with four new star ters on the offensiv e line, including M ankins who has been selected to play in the Pro Bowl each of the past ve seasons. After starting every game he appeared in over nine seasons with New England, hes look ing forward to doing whatev er he can to help his new team. Once youve been around this business long enough, every thing is possible. Its a business rst and for emost, Mankins said. G uys play because they love it, but it is a business.

Paternal grandparents are Margarito and Maria Carrera. | BIRTH | ANOUNCEMENTSBabies are tough. Babies have a wicked sense of humor. Babies can spend the rst year of their life licking dirt, spending time unsuper vised, and cuddling with cows and still enter into the toddler stage healthy and happy. These are all things a new mom can learn from watching the 2010 documentary Babies. Whenever I meet a young woman who is pregnant or has a baby that is her rst child, I urge her to rent Babies. It follows the rst year of life of four babies living in Africa, Mongolia, Tokyo and San Francisco. Its not only the dramatic differences in the way the babies are being raised that makes this fouryear-old movie fascinating the African baby has his hair cut with a machete, the Mongolian baby is taken home from the hospital on the back of a motorcycle it is also the underlying truth that babies are babies, no matter where they hang their well, I would say diaper, but only two of the four babies in the movie ever wear one. I suspect I look at young moms much like my mom looked at me and my girlfriends as we voraciously read baby books, dedicated hours to baby-proong our houses and insisted no one come within a mile of our babies if they have a cold, had a cold or watched a TV commercial about cold medicine (not really on the last one, but pretty darn close). I recall my moms advice to me on paciers. After reading a few books that warned parents on the impending disaster that would happen if you let your child become dependent on a binkie, I told my mom I wasnt going to give my newborn daughter one. After the rst night at home with my baby my mom came over for the day. Seeing we were both exhausted from a sleepless night she stood in the hallway, baby in her arms holding a pacier in the quiet, sleeping babys mouth. Youll thank me for this someday, she said with a smile. Thank you, mom! When the movie Babies rst premiered, the French lmmakers director Thomas Balmes and producer Alain Chabat said in an interview that they found during the making of their movie that as long as there is love given to the babies, they were happy and healthy. So, I tell new moms, put down the Purell, go watch this movie and then spend some time just cuddling your bundle of joy.

Wednesday, September 3, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 www.newssun.com Placid Lakes Party LineBY SUSIE LEELAKE PLACID The Dalton Gang will be making noise on Thursday, Sept. 4 at the Placid Lakes Country Club. As they say, the squeaky wheel gets the grease!, so if you want stuff to happen, be there to vote on what you want to do in the coming months, and every effort will be made to make it happen. Dont forget to take advantage of the u shot clinic on Sept. 17 at the town hall provided by Walgreens. From 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. No appointment is necessary, but bring your Medicare card. Call Bonnie at 863465-4888 if you have questions. Had a sneak preview of the upcoming September newsletter from the PLHOA. You are in for one nice surprise. Dick Greider and his team really came up with a keeper! It is very gratifying to see the entire subdivision pulling together to make Placid Lakes the best there is. Full steam ahead, and keep up the good work. The Lake Placid Ballroom Dancers are going to be celebrating their third anniversary on Sept. 20 at the Lake Placid Elks Lodge. Those members are also in for a nice surprise gift. Plus Buddy Canova, the Saxy one doing the music. Whoa!Royal CareBY ANGEL WIGGINSAVON PARK Aug. 19 is National Aviation Day, a day of celebration and reection, and a day when the staff, residents and families of Royal Care had the honor of having Barry Vincent Smith, one of the rst female aviators, come in during the August event where local pilot Neil Matheis II spoke about his experience in ight, learning new skills and his rst time ying. Barry Vincent Smith spoke about WASP, Women Airforce Service Pilots. WASP ew test planes for the U.S. Army during World War II. She spoke of her life in WASP and after her discharge from service. She explained that after her discharge she was told that women of WASP did not have any military ranking, which was discouraging to herself and others who ew with her. Barry explained that for her it was most disappointing because both her brothers have military ranking but she now has none; the training and ight time that both brothers endured is what she had gone through as well. Royal Care loved hosting this amazing person, with her will ingness to share her life with us so openly. Ms. Smith stepped up to the plate without a blink of the eye.Tropical Harbor EstatesBY ARLENE CLOUSTONLAKE PLACID September is the height of the hurricane season. Heres hoping the season doesnt nd it necessary to live up to its scary statistics. To be on the safe side have all your prescriptions relled and have plenty of bottled water on hand. Its a good idea to have canned food on hand that you can eat cold like baked beans, tuna, fruit, etc. It does not spoil if you do not use it. Make sure all your important papers are in a briefcase so you can just grab them as you go out the door if you need to leave. Having your orange bucket packed is a comfort knowing youre ready, come what may. If youre in long lines after a hurricane, you always have your orange bucket to sit on. Since Mothers Day the clubhouse and the surrounding area has been off limits to us. So weve been improvising by using carports for our morning coffee hour. During all this time we have not been rained on nor been hit by the torrents of summer so to speak. The gods have been good to us. Monday Morning Co-ed BYOC meeting was held on Peggy Sue Teagues carport with her emceeing the gathering. After Peggy Sue read the list of birthdays only Clare Bloch was present, so we sang happy birthday to her as she directed. Caro Noel was asked to give the health report, which was not happy. Charles Elmquest has had surgery; a former resident, Lucille Rawland, has been ill; Ed and Barbara Meyer have moved to Balmoral and we will dearly miss them; and Gertrude Burgan, Vincent Barnard, and Gilbert Marino have passed away; our sympathy to their families. Brenda Knoche announced that she, Betty Hogan and Betty Schultz would be hosting the ladies lunch out on Sept. 16 at Chicanes Restaurant on Golfview Road in Sebring. The Mustangs will be going to the Placid Lakes Country Club on Sept. 16 for their lunch out. The ladies coffee was held at Marilyn Cromers home on Sept. 26. Marilyn and Joan Rau discussed the organization of the walking tacos buffet. Carol Noel told that Sandy Doubek has not been feeling well. The coffee on Sept. 9 will be at the home of Donna Kilbride; and on Sept. 16 Emily Snider will have the coffee at her home. We sang Happy Birthday to Fran Buero since her 84th birthday is Sept. 1. Hello, This is God. I will be handling all of your problems today. I will not be needing your help. So have a good day. I love you.

Recently she did this while some painting contractors were working around our house. I have begged her not to, to no avail. What should I do? MORE MODEST IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR M.M.: It appears you married an exhibitionist. You might point out to her that parading around that way could be considered disrespectful to the workers shes exposed herself to. But dont be surprised if shes unwilling to change because it may give her some kind of thrill. (Im sure it also gives the viewers something to talk about around the dinner table.) DEAR ABBY: Please remind beachgoers that they need to leave their re pits OPEN and not cover them with sand. My 16-month-old grandnephew was walking on a beach in Carmel, Calif., with his mom and dad when he suffered burns to his feet from walking across sand beneath which were hot coals. It will take at least three weeks for this dear babys feet to heal from those burns. People dont realize that covering the coals with sand hides them and keeps them hot for up to 24 hours! Beach res must be treated differently from those in a forest, where they should be covered with dirt because of the sur rounding trees. BEACH ETIQUETTE DEAR B.E.: Im printing your letter not only as a warning to beachgoers who might be using re pits, but also to the parents of small children because hot buried coals can be a hidden danger to their little ones. Because the coals cannot be seen, children sometimes confuse re pits ringed by rocks with sandboxes, and the results can be tragic. According to the University of California Irvines Regional Burn Center, coals should be extinguished by drenching them with water, waiting ve minutes and drenching them AGAIN. (Italics are mine.) When water isnt available, the coals should simply be allowed to burn out.Husband is reluctant spectator at wifes parade in the nude DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil lips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby. com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. LAKE CITY, Pa. (AP) Its no secret technology is changing our television-viewing habits. Americans are increasingly engaging in a practice known as television binge-watching going through several episodes of a TV show in a single stretch. In the old days, of course, people watched one episode a week. That changed with digital video recorders and Internet streaming services such as Netix and Hulu. DVDs and online services also make it possible to start shows from the beginning, even years after the nale has aired. I used some recent trips to nish Showtimes Dexter and start CBS The Good Wife. In between, I breezed through Netixs Orange Is The New Black and the second season of House of Cards. I have about 50 series on various watch lists and people are continually recommending more. I know what Ill be doing this Labor Day weekend. So why am I unhappy about this new way to watch TV? AVOIDING SPOILERS: The biggest challenge with binge-watching is avoiding mentions of plot twists and other spoilers in the news media, on social networks and in casual conversations. Although friends on Facebook restrain from giving specics, they often say enough to signal that something surprising just happened. Please! When I got to one of those episodes in question on Game of Thrones last year, I thought to myself, thats it? It became a letdown rather than a shock as fans watching at the time experienced it. Worse, I knew how the serial-killer drama Dexter ended long before I got to watch the nal season during a trip to California this summer. Yes, its my fault for not keeping up; the nale was shown last September. But this column is about what I miss about watching television the old-fashioned way. I also know whats coming on The Good Wife three seasons from the one Im currently watching. Then again, hearing about that plot twist this spring got me interested in the legal drama. Amazon Instant Video made it possible to start watching from Season 1. AVOIDING SPOILING: Aware of how it feels to hear about spoilers, Im careful not to spoil others. But its hard to keep track of what I can say to whom. How I Met Your Mother ended its nine-year run in March. To minimize the risk of spoilers, I watched it the day after the nale aired on CBS. But my friends were still months behind and werent available to discuss the meeting of the mother with me. Same goes for Breaking Bad, which ended last fall after ve seasons to critical acclaim. Its a show many people want to watch, but relatively few have nished. Will you hurry up so I can talk about it? THE PASSAGE OF TIME: I lose the sense of time by binge-watching. I dont mean hours lost to television when I could be doing something useful to society, like laundry. Many television shows follow the sea sons. Characters mark Christmas in December and Valentines Day in February. Leaves are colorful in the fall. When I binge-watch, I dont always get a good sense of whether something I watched just four hours ago really took place four weeks or four months ago. I also miss having a week or even a summer to reect. Instead of challenging my mind to play out potential outcomes following a cliffhanger, I can simply press play to nd out in the next episode. The last series I truly watched live was Lost. I dont mean watching on a DVR that night or the next day. I mean watching it as it aired usually at a bar in New York lled with fans who were quick to shush anyone who tried to talk. I spent the week between episodes discussing theories with friends, reading blogs and listening to podcasts devoted to the show. For the nale in May 2010, a friend in Belgium at the time even dropped by our gathering in New York for a surprise visit. Alas, a friend who just went through the entire series online this spring didnt have those opportunities. Of course, Lost isnt like most series. And its true that some shows are easier to follow by bingeing. Twist-heavy shows such as Revenge and Scandal come to mind. But overall, youre losing something when youre not watching shows as they air.The case against binge-watching TV 4 ti...........................................................................SMDOKCBFun By The4 5 Numbers5 3 2 Like puzzes?Then youove9 7 3 sudoku.

Wednesday, September 3, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B7 www.newssun.com I hope you all enjoyed your long holiday weekend with family, friends and hopefully some good food. Last week, Lauren and I were at the market and I was looking for a cool pasta to use in what I was going to make for dinner. I discovered Trottole pasta its kind of like tube corkscrew pasta that runs back through its center. I thought this would make a great texture for the dish that I was going to make that night. What I made was pretty simple and called for julienned onions, sliced mushrooms, diced tomatoes, garlic and I added some chicken sausage that had sun dried tomatoes in the sausage. Of course, I had to have some fresh herbs to nish it so I chopped fresh rosemary to add just before its nished. I like to look for ingredients such as a chicken sausage for convenience and speeding up the cooking time. First, I sliced the sausage on a bias and began to saut it with olive oil. I then added my onions, mushrooms and tomatoes and enjoyed the aromas in our kitchen. When everything was just about done, I nished the dish with the cooked pasta, rosemary and garlic. I didnt add a sauce because I thought it had plenty of avors already and all it might need with a small amount of Parmesan. I hope you try this easy dish and enjoy this pasta and its great texture. Cheers, Chef. Trottole is an awesome pasta Tim SpainCHEFS CORNER Tim Spain is System Executive Chef with Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and Morrison Healthcare Food Service.
