The first is a joint meeting with the Avon Park Police Pension Board, followed at 6:30 p.m. by a special meeting of the Community Redevelopment Agency Board to make a decision on funding events for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day in January. The MLK Day event choices and requests include a $10,000 downtown event covering the entire weekend or a Southside community request to host a $3,000 event and parade on Jan. 20, 2014. The City Council, sitting as the CRA Board, might also choose to do some combination of the two.

However, the dates for the countys trick or treating are not unanimous this year. Lake Placid Police Chief James Fansler had no problem throwing a curveball when it came to choosing the date for the citys designated trick or treating. Over the past several years, the new tradition of holding trick or treating the Saturday before Halloween if the holiday does not fall on a Saturday that year has become, in Fanslers opinion, odd. Im a traditionalist. I grew up going trick or treating on the day of Halloween. It didnt matter if it was a week day or a Saturday, Fansler said.

The Highlands County Sheriffs Office said suspect Arcadio Torres Jr. knows the woman, but in an effort to protect the victims identity the News-Sun is withholding the nature of that relationship. Deputies reported that the victim had a n injunction for protection order against the man at the time. The victim is safe and the suspect at the jail, Sheriff Susan Benton said. W oman sa f e after being kidnapped Torres By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Highlands County Commissioners spent much of their Tuesday morning meeting struggling again with traffic patterns on the Sebring Parkway Phase II. In the end, they chose to put off making any major changes to the area, deciding instead to wait and hear from the owners of Yarbrough Tire & Services Inc., who own a pair of lots at the intersection of Youth Care Lane and the Parkway where turn lanes have been suggested. It was just over a year ago the board instructed staff members to redesign the parkway from Youth Care Lane to DeSoto Road. In particular, they had asked that the plan eliminate a multi-use path, do away with a continuous southbound left turn lane and utilize the existing right of way. We went back to the drawing board, and under our new design we still would be able to have a sidewalk on the west side of the road, Highlands County Engineer Ramon Gavarette told the board Tuesday. The cost of the action would run in the neighborhood of $516,000, but could increase with attorney fees. The money would come from an FDOTfund set aside for improvements to the Parkway. Several logistical issues confront the commissioners in terms of making the traffic flow more smoothly in the area. It would involve the purchase of additional land for a northbound right turn lane onto Youth Care Lane as well as the relocation of a driveway which currently sits on Yarbroughs property just at the intersection of the parkway and County talks about tricky Parkway plans Katara Simmons/News-Sun The driveway for Yarbrough Tire that empties into Youth Care Lane a short distance from the Sebring Parkway is one of the sticking points in the redesign of the Parkway expansion.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING Highlands County Sheriffs Office dispatch received a call at about 4 a.m. Friday that a burglary had just occurred. The victims reported that they were asleep in their room when they were awakened by a light being turned on in their bedroom. The caller stated that she saw a slim male standing in front of her dresser. When the suspect saw them, he ran. The victims then noticed items, including a shotgun missing. Also found in their home was a backpack that did not belong to them. Deputy Ross Porter arrived and began an investigation, requesting K-9 to respond. Deputy Dusty McGee and K-9 Billy arrived and established a track that lead to an address nearby where information was developed that ultimately helped detectives identify the intruder and make an arrest. Rodney Phelps, 18, of 17500 Broadwing Lane, Okeechobee, was arrested and booked into the Highlands County Jail with charges of occupied burglary, grand theft, and grand theft of a firearm. His bond is set at $8,000. All of the victimsproperty was recovered and returned, and thankfully no one was injured. Detective Bret Hinkle took over the case from patrol and made the arrest. Great team work; patrol, K-9, and investigations, said Sheriff Susan Benton. Thank you K-9 Billy for leading the way.

Oversight for the operation is provided by a board comprised of local elected officials from Highlands, Hardee and DeSoto counties. We are delighted to have Donna and the other representatives as part of our October program, said Nell Roberts of the Voters League. There are so many people who hear these numbers issued each month but dont understand how they are figured. We are hoping to get the answers to those and other questions. Voters League meetings are comprised of a brief address by the guest, followed by an extended question-andanswer session from the audience. We do that so people can get the information they desire, Roberts said. We have some really great sessions that way. The program comes the day before the monthly report from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, which issues a recap of previous month jobless figures as well as a synopsis of job movement throughout the Sunshine State. Last month, for instance, statistics showed that of the 39,699 people listed in the Highlands County workforce, there were 3,478 out of work, which translated to a 7 percent unemployment rate.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING Highlands Art Leagues paint-along program Art Uncorked celebrated two significant milestones on Thursday, Oct. 10. Not only did the Pink Hibiscus class with Linda Kegley mark the beginning of the second year of the program, but the 1,000th customer was honored. Sherri Crow was the lucky person who registered for the 1000th seat in the classes. Also present at the first Art Uncorked class in October of 2012, Crow was presented a gift basket of wine and art supplies, along with a memory book that highlighted her past classes and the year in review. Other artists were honored with a hand-painted wine glass from Linda Kegley as Prolific Picassos, those ladies who have attended the most classes: Cheryl Oxsalida, Lynda Owen Smith, Gingerlee Mitchelllindo, Christine Pletcher, Dawn Dell and the most prolific of all, Jane Bayless. Don Elwell, co-chairman of the HALBoard of Directors, made the presentations along with co-chair Barb Hall and Board Members Suzanne Wright, Patty Palmer, Nancy Palmer and Mona Sutphin ONeill. Kegley was honored with a proclamation from the Board of Directors for her role in developing and growing the program and Alice Hansen was honored along with Kegley with an appreciation gift for all the work that has gone into making a success of the program. Merideth Wohl was recognized as the person who brought the idea for the program to the Art League. Many budding artists have cut their teeth on Art Uncorkeds premier picture from Oct. 9, 2012, the Happy Tree. Nearly 200 Happy Trees have been painted and it is still one of the most requested classes. Teachers Megan Ekenstedt, Sally Lemke and Jack Smile have recently joined Kegley and Hansen in teaching the popular twoto three-hour sessions where students complete a painting in one sitting at the Visual Arts Center in the HALArtists Village on the east side of Lake Jackson. Private parties, available for 12 or more students, are a popular draw for birthdays, bridal showers, team building exercises and just getting away for a girls night out.

Art Uncorked celebrates second anniversary By PHILATTINGER email@example.comAVON PARK Deputy Mayor Brenda Giles asked for and got a special meeting of the citys Community Redevelopment Agency set for Thursday. Giles said Monday that issues brought up at last Fridays Southside CRA Advisory Board meeting needed to be handled by the Mothership Board, the CRAboards nickname among city officials. She originally asked for today or Friday, but Councilman Garrett Anderson suggested the meeting be added to Thursdays joint meeting with the Avon Park Police Pension Board. Council members and staff agreed to add it before the meeting until Arnold Davis, an alternate for the Southside advisory board, asked to have it later to allow working people and parents a better chance to attend. The City Council then decided to move the CRA special meeting to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, after the pension board joint meeting. Councilman Heston was not present Monday. The CRAmatter involves conflicting plans for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 20, 2014. The Southside advisory board has arranged through an event planner to put on a threeto four-day downtown event with a festival atmosphere and a budget of $10,000. Meanwhile, Southside community members would prefer a neighborhood and volunteer event staged mostly in the Southside community on the holiday itself with a maximum $3,000 budget. Advisory Board Chairman Gerald Snell told the City Council on Monday that he wanted to have a unified event, but would accept and support their decision on Thursday whatever it may be and pledged to continue volunteering with the city and the MLK Day events, however needed. The advisory board meeting on Friday often dissolved into raised voices between advisory board and audience members, including two audience claims that one city resident should not be on the board because he was born and raised in Wauchula in Hardee County, not in Avon Park. Snell, speaking as a resident during Mondays City Council meeting, decried those comments and other forms of intolerance. He said the advisory board member volunteers in many local organizations more often than some other residents and said Travis Garcia, event planner hired by the Southside advisory board to arrange MLK Day events, has been reviled, too. Although he is of the same skin color of most of the residents of the Southside community, apparently that is not enough to be accepted by some who were born in the Southside, Snell said. He said some who have moved away and returned to Avon Park have not been accepted, either. Snell said one northside resident said those not born in Avon Park dont deserve to work for the city because their heart wasnt born in Avon Park. Also, Snell said he was subject to racial ignoran ce and bigotry from another resident two weeks ago while walking out of a city council meeting. I was hugely disappointed more so because this person betrays kindness in public, Snell said. I question the true motives of some who say certain things publicly yet their actions say somethin g entirely different in private. Mayor Sharon Schuler also made a plea for civil ity when she opened Mondays meeting. The city council meetings (have become) a yelling match, Schuler said. We will not be allowing that at this time or from now on. She said residents may fill out slips of paper to speak if they wished and said that they would be heard. But if you start holler out back and forth, I will hit the gavel (and) you w ill be escorted out of the chambers, Schuler said. This goes for council members and city manager. Councilman Parke Sutherland also asked if the City Council would be willing to compare the citys public participation policy to the Highlands County Commissions po licy. He said he wasnt sure if it was necessary for mem bers of the community to have to sign a sheet just to address the council on matters of city concern at the end of a meeting. City Attorney Gerald Buhr said the main conce rn is that the city make sure citizens have input on matters up for a vote by the city council. AP mayor, CRA advisory chair ask for civility By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING It appears the combinat ion of pumping and the lack of rain has r esulted in a reduction in the flooding t hat had plagued the Highlands Park a rea near Lake Istokpoga in recent w eeks. I believe most of this is due to evapo ration, said Highlands County E ngineer Ramon Gavarette. We have h ad no rain in nine days and only a h alf-inch of rain in 15 days. Primary efforts to pump the area had n ot been as successful as county offic ials had hoped. They then moved the pumps and lines to a different location in an attempt to deal with topography in the area. Gavarette showed commissioners new photographs demonstrating the abatement of the flooding. You can see how the water levels are down tremendously, he said. Theres a lot more road visible. Even with the focused effort the costs were kept relatively low, with Gavarette estimating the homeownersassociation to be charged a little more than $5,000 including engineering, surveying as well as some inspection and permitting costs. Gavarette and Highlands County Road and Bridge Director Kyle Green apparently were confident enough to recommend that pumping be stopped and the pumps removed unless and until there is another inundation of rainfall. Agreat, great job by everybody involved, said Highlands County Commission Chairman Jack Richie, adding that records kept by staff have established a history in case the problem surfaces again. Commissioners agreed that the pumping could be stopped, hoses moved and that Washington Boulevard could be reopened soon. Flood waters recede in Highlands Park Associated PressAreview of a deadly p olice chase in Cleveland n early a year ago has led t o suspensions for 63 p atrol officers who viol ated orders and departm ent rules, the citys p olice chief said Tuesday. Afleeing driver and p assenger were killed w hen officers fired 137 s hots at them in the 23m inute chase that i nvolved five dozen c ruisers and wove t hrough residential neighb orhoods before ending i n gunfire. Police Chief Michael M cGrath said the suspens ions were the result of d isciplinary hearings, and v iolations ranged from i nsubordination to drivi ng too fast during the c hase. The hearings did not i nvolve any of the offic ers involved in the s hooting because a count y grand jury is investig ating possible criminal w rongdoing among the 1 3 officers who fired t heir weapons.

The former believe each i ndividual is responsible for h is or her self. They believe g overnment is wasteful and c annot be trusted. The latter b elieve individuals accomp lish more when they help e ach other and work togethe r. They see government as a t ool created to enhance and i mprove life for as many p eople as possible. It seems to us that a societ y thrives with a mixture of b oth: Self-disciplined people w orking together for the g ood of the whole. There has been a practical c onsequence as government b udgets have been cut back stopping taxpayer subsid ies to non-profit private a gencies. Partly as a result, nonp rofit agencies need to plead f or private donations more t han ever before. Most of us have probably been overwhelmed by requests to donate to worthy causes. And most of us have probably vowed to never write another check again at some time or point. Here comes the silver lining to the current black cloud of political discontent forced to revolutionize, many non-profit agencies found new approaches to spotlight their causes and get people involved. Two of the best are walka-thons and 5K races. They combine the best of the two prevailing world views individuals challenge themselves to better performances while maintaining their health while at the same time gathering with others in support of a common cause. The idea is catching on. In Highlands County within the last few weeks, people walked to raise awareness for Alzheimers disease and breast cancer. When the three cities hold their Rallies for Life next spring, participants will walk 18 miles. There are 5K races held all year. Just the idea of getting outside is healthy, especially for the children. Doing a good deed at the same time is an important bonus. This could be just the beginning. Imagine an Old Fashioned Race Day fundraiser, complete with box lunches for sale. Participants could take part in spoon races, potato sack racks, three-legged races, wheel barrow races, a tugof-war and more. Or there could be a volleyball tournament, a paddle board race or a skateboard competition to get young people involved. The more individuals work together locally, the sooner the nation can regain its balance. We may be surrounded by lemons, but its time to turn them into lemonade.

I have not conspired, contracted, solicited, or in any way shape or form attempted to close or terminate the City of Avon Park Police Officer Pension Fund. I was first elected to the pension board in 1986 and, with the exception of a twoyear span, have been a board member since that time. I have been the chairman for the past 13 years. In October of 2012, the city council and city manager terminated all but three Avon Park Police officers. There was no merging of departments, there were no promises or guarantees for employment. Those officers had to apply for positions with the Sheriffs Office, go through the hiring process, and hopefully gain employment. The actions of the council and city manager (Julian Deleon) created concern for the survival of the pension plan by terminated vested and current retirees. The concerns of a conspiracy to terminate this plan, as so eloquently express by our current city manager, are a misrepresentation of the facts. The facts are this: Aperson, unknown to me, contacted the State of Florida division of retirement inquiring as to whether or not the actions taken by the Avon Park City Council and the city manager (turning the law enforcement duties over to the S.O.) closed or terminated the pension plan. The Division of Retirement contacted the pension board attorney, Scott Christiansen. Scott contacted the city manager for the job descriptions of the few remaining officers as requested by the Division of Retirement. The e-mails that have been provided to the city manager are copies that were sent to me keeping me informed, as the chairman, of all matters pertaining to the plan. To share this information with the other trustees would have me violating the Sunshine Law. There is not one e-mail sent from me to anyone suggesting closing or terminating the plan. The allegations made against me are unsubstantiated. There is no evidence or justification for them other than the fact that I have chosen to run for public office (mayor of Avon Park). The city manager approached the plan complaining about the administrative costs and attempted to get the board to turn over the adminstrative duties of the plan to The Florida League of Cities. He then presented a program to city council praising the Florida League of Cities and how the league could drastically reduce those cost. In their presentation, the league stated that this plan was 92 percent funded and very few Florida plans were in this good of shape (if it aint broke, don,t fix it). When these attempts failed, (Deleon) began to attempt to discredit Carol Knapp, who has been the pension board administrator for some 26 years. This plan has grown from $300,000 to $5.4 million under Mrs. Knapps watchful eye. Mr. Deleon then came to the board with a presentation where the board would loan the city $1 million to purchase a water system and be guaranteed an 8 percent return. This request was denied by recommendation of the board attorney as this constitutes a breach of fiduciary responsibilty. Mr. Deleon stated that he began to have suspicions when his officers were asked about their job descriptions in depositions with Bob Grizzard (a man I have only met once). If he had suspicion then, why did he wait until he found out that I was running for mayor to bring these allegations? Was it to attempt to defame my name and destroy my character prior to the election? I attended a council meeting and did in fact address the council. I explained to them what I knew and that I have never been an advicate of terminating the pension. They did not listen, nor was one word of what I said printed in either Highlands County newspapers. I am sure that Mr. Deleon will have a totally different perspective on this matter, as he always does, but given 8,000 pages of emails and picking only 67 to present, I would bet that anyone could concoct any type of story that they choose. I entered the Board of Trustees position fully aware of what my fiduciary reponsibilities were. I accepted them willingly and took them very seriously. My responsibilties were to the members of the pension plan. It was never to do the bidding of the city or the city manager. My job was to protect each party equally. I believe I did just that. The plan is healthy and solvent and needs to remain so. This is about the future of every terminated vested and current retiree. These officers have dedicated their lives to this community and deserve the retirements tha t they have earned. These officers have families, wives and children that depend on this benefit. I wonder if Mr. Deleon thought about the families of the 60-plus employees he let go, or if this move was just good for business and better for politics? In the past two years, I have been cut to part time (29 hours a week), cut again to 24 hou rs a week, and once the code enforcement position was reinstated to full time, I was told I would have to reapply for a position that I already hold or be terminated, as the part-time position is being deleted. Attempts have been made to slander, degrade and humiliate me before city council in an obvious mov e to destroy my character before this election. Now even my campaign signs have begun to disappear from private property. Although I am disappointed in the actions of some people, I stand firm on my convictions. I have broken no laws. I upheld my fiduciary responsibilities and my character is intact. I have been accused of running for mayor to oust the city manager. If the city manager does his job and fulfills his obligations to the city coun cil as well as the citizens of Avon Park, he has nothing to fear. It should be noted that this election is not about the city manager. It is about selecting the right person to take this city forward and return her to the City of Charm as she used to be. The negative pubicity has to stop. We need to start anew and change the way the pe ople of Highlands County view our city, re-estabish community partnerships, promote growth and bring new business to Avon Park I know that there are people that will respond to this and that they will adequately enforce their views and positions.

questions of what public record email messages the city needed from Plan Administrator Carol Knapp and other board members and what those messages contained. However, Councilman Parke Sutherland expressed concerns that no one from the pension board might attend Thursdays meeting and that might cost the city in legal fees. He said he anticipates that Scott Christiansen will attend for the pension board itself and attorney Matt Mierzwa would be there in regard to the public records request from the city. However, he said he received a letter, as pension board liaison, that Knapps personal attorney, Robert Grizzard, would attend in her place. Sutherland said he didnt know if past chairman Greg Warner would attend or not. Given that attorneyscosts would be paid, at least in part, by the city through the pension boards, Sutherland wondered if the city should hold Thursdays meeting at all. Councilman Garrett Anderson said he would have no problem with cancellation as long as the city council would state it decided to cancel and that it was not someone elses fault. He also suggested that pension board members may have authorized their attorneys to answer all questions of the board. Deputy Mayor Brenda Giles asked if the state had a minimum time limit to cancel a meeting, and City Attorney Gerald Buhr there wasnt as long as the city gives enough time for other participants to alter their plans, including canceling their attorneysattendance. She then asked to have Buhr consult with other attorneys to make sure the meeting is still in effect and report to Sutherland. The City Council then voted that if Buhr and Sutherland cant get confirmation that Knapp or Warner would attend, the city would cancel the meeting. While that move might save part of the citys legal costs, the City Council Monday reconfirmed its decision to pay legal costs for City Manager Julian Deleon. Deleon had asked for and got approval on Sept. 23 to have the city reimburse him for attorneys fees incurred while defending against an ethics complaint filed by Anderson. Anderson was the one dissenting vote on that motion. In reviewing minutes on Monday, Anderson noted the text didnt record a dollar amount for Deleons compensation and asked that minutes be amended to include that. His recollection was that Deleon had asked for $8,500, and that if the city council wanted to approve that request, the amount should be in the minutes. However, Buhr said the decision of the council was to approve Deleons reques t subject to review by him. Im just saying if thats what we did, we need to pu t it in there, Anderson said. Sutherland moved to mak e an amendment to the minutes and it passed 4-0. Councilman Terry Heston was not present Monday. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, October 16, 2013 Page A5 biz spotlight; 5.542"; 8"; Black plus three; process, heartland biz spotlig; 0 0 0 3 2 6 4 1 CENTRAL FLORIDA CASKET STORE &; 1.736"; 6"; Black; obit page; 0 0 0 3 2 6 6 3 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; rhr top of ad stack; 0 0 0 3 2 6 8 4 ELIZABETH STEWART Elizabeth Stewart, 95, b eloved mother, grandm other, great grandmother, a nd sister, went to be with t he Lord on Sunday, Oct. 1 3, 2013.

Obituaries By MIKE SCHNEIDER Associated PressWINTER HAVEN Two g irls were arrested in a F lorida bullying case after o ne of them admitted online o ver the weekend that she h arassed a 12-year-old girl w ho killed herself last m onth, Polk County Sheriff G rady Judd said Tuesday. Judd said they arrested a 1 4-year-old girl because they w ere worried she would cont inue cyberbullying other g irls. The girl is accused of t hreatening to beat up 12y ear-old Rebecca Sedwick, t elling her to drink bleach a nd die and saying she s hould kill herself, the sheri ff said. After nearly a year of bull ying by as many as 15 girls, a uthorities said Rebecca climbed a tower at an abandoned concrete plant Sept. 9 and hurled herself to her death. Judd said police arrested the 14-year-old girl after she posted Saturday on Facebook that she bullied Rebecca and she didnt care. We decided that we cant leave her out there. Who else is she going to torment, who else is she going to harass? Judd said. Police also arrested a 12year-old girl who is accused of bullying Rebecca. Both have been charged with felony aggravated stalking. Judd said the bullying began after the 14-year-old girl started dating a boy that Rebecca had been seeing. She didnt like that and began to harass and ultimately torment Rebecca, Judd said. Aman who answered the phone at the 14-year-olds Lakeland home said he was her father and told The Associated Press none of its true. My daughters a good girl and Im 100 percent sure that whatever theyre saying about my daughter is not true, he said. Amessage left at the 12year-old girls home was not immediately returned. The girls were arrested Monday night and released to their parentscustody. They remain on home detention. The 12-year-old girl was Rebeccas former best friend, but the sheriff said the 14-year-old girl turned her against Rebecca. Other girls also stopped being friends with Rebecca in fear of being bullied, the sheriff said. Judd said he was upset the girls still had access to social networks after Rebeccas suicide. If we can find any charges we can bring against their parents, we will, Judd said. Judd said neither girls parents wanted to bring their daughters to the sheriffs office, so detectives went to their homes and arrested them. Judd said the 14-year-old suspect was very cold, had no emotion at all upon her arrest. Two girls arrested for stalking in Lakeland bullying case AP/Lakeland Ledg er Twelve-year-old Rebecca Ann Sedwick jumped to her death at this abandoned cement plant in Lakeland on Sept. 10.

SFSC Dental Education Clinic offers free oral cancer screenings AVON PARK South F lorida State Colleges D ental Hygiene program w ill hold oral cancer s creenings from 3-6 p.m. T hursday in Building T, S FSC Highlands Campus. The screening is by appointment only, is open to the public, and is free. The screening is a simple process that only takes about 15-20 minutes. After a brief medical history, patients will undergo a head and neck evaluation. When needed, the visual exam is followed by a VELscope examination in which a florescent light is shown into the mouth and helps to detect abnormal cells that are not visible to the naked eye. Even people who wear dentures should have an oral cancer screening every year, said Dr. Deborah Milliken, department chair, Dental Education. Dental hygienists and dental assistants tend to be communityminded individuals and Oral Cancer Screening is only one of the many ways they serve in their communities. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation and Oral Cancer Consortium, oral cancer is more deadly than Hodgkin's lymphoma, cervical, thyroid, and skin cancers, and kills one person every hour of the day, but when found early, oral cancer patients have a 90 percent survival rate. Oral cancer risk factors include alcohol and tobacco use, advancing age, sun exposure, a diet low in fruits and vegetables, and the human papilloma virus (HPV), which presents a five-times increase in occurrence in people under the age of 40. To make an appointment, call SFSC Dental Education at 784-7020. TwoLowVisiongro upsjoiningforcesSEBRING H.A.L.L.O.s Low Vision Information Group has joined efforts withTheRedCane Club.

As a professional engineer, my recommendation is to close the driveway there at the intersection, Gavarette told the board. Floyd Yarbrough, one of the owners of Yarbrough Tire & Service, told commissioners that moving both their access points already had been part of their plans but actual implementation was another matter entirely. We have had engineers out, but they all tell us, You have a bigger problem than we thought, he said. The relocation of the driveways also means a change in the traffic patterns at the business as well as major changes in their utility services. (People) say thats an awful lot of money for that little piece of property, but the cost of the land is just a drop in the bucket, he said. Its all this other stuff that has to be done. Commissioner Ron Handley also suggested that county could put off current changes and instead look to the future, using countyowned property to the north of Fred Wild Elementary School to relocate an access road and change the traffic pattern to the school. We could live with what we have for the time being until we really need to do something, he said. Then we could use the property so they could loop the driveway around and drop it back onto Youth Care Lane. There is a traffic signal there. Handley said that land also could provide additional space to enlarge the building in the future should that be needed. But, he pointed out, one of the issues revolving around the plan was that of projected growth, a notion he does not agree with. Whave shrunk over the past six years. Its pie in the sky as to how far out it is that we really need this, Handley said. That idea was countered by Yarbrough. You have a problem (at the intersection) now, he said. If you doubt it, just g o out there and spend some time. Yarbrough cited not only school traffic problems in the early morning and late afternoon, but also southbound drivers who end up i n the left-turn-only lane. Every day there is an occurrence. People cutting people off; sometimes you think theres going to be a fight. Another issue that was discussed would be the pos sible effect that the drivewa y relocations would have on extending school zones. Th at might end up being significant with zones possibly stretching from north of Sebring High School to south of Fred Wild Elementary. No date for another discussion on the matter was set. Continued from A1 Torres, 30, has been charged with kidnapping, sexual battery and violation of injunction for protection. He is in the Highlands County Jail without bond. The call came in at 2:15 a.m. Tuesday from the Las Palmas Resort Apartments on in Avon Park. At first deputies thought it was a suspicious incident, but residents told them someone may have been kidnapped. Witnesses said Torres had forced the victim into his car and left the area. Deputies looked up Torres on in-car computers and began checking known addresses and searching for his car. About the time that detectives and the sheriffs crime scene analysts arrived at the apartments, Torres and the victim returned, arrest reports said. Reports said detectives detained Torres and assisted the victim, who said she felt ill. Emergency Medical Services arrived and took her to the hospital, reports said. There, she told detectives that Torres forced her into his car and immediately began to hit her and pull her hair repeatedly. While yelling and cursing at her, according to reports, he drove to an orange grove and sexually assaulted her. It appears that this victim took as much precaution as possible, (but) even with an injunction for protection in place, the suspect ... was able to take her, Benton said. Seek every possible protection if you find yourself in the cycle of domesti c violence. The local help number is 863-386-1167 and the Florida Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-500-1119, she said.

Continued from A1 By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING It appears t hat Highlands County will h ave two new grocery stores s ometime next year. But they w ill be new in name only. Grocery giant Bi-Lo H oldings is in the process of c ompleting their buy-out for D elhaize Group. The B russels-based firm is the p arent company of the S weetbay, Harveys and R eids supermarket chains. Once the sale is completed, the two Sweetbay supermarkets in Highlands county will be rebranded into WinnDixie locations. Sweetbay spokespersons say the deal still is under regulatory review and until any sale is complete they remain competitors in the marketplace. Officials from Bi-Lo have indicated they expect the transaction could be completed in the first quarter of next year. Until such time, company officials said they could not provide information on conversion dates. They say store-specific information regarding offerings, layout and personnel numbers would be revealed as soon as the regulatory review process has been completed. I can say that we are expecting to welcome approximately 10,000 employees into our family upon completion of the transaction, said Corporate Communications Manager Kelly Bell. We intend to cause as little disruption as possible and to continue to provide many of the same products that customers have grown accustomed to. One change shoppers reportedly could see would be at the cash register as the stores adopt the Winn-Dixie pricing strategy. The chain uses a membership card system which offers discounts on select items as well as gasoline discounts through their Fuel Perks program, which is based on grocery products. There are two Sweetbay supermarkets in Highlands county. One is located at the DeSoto Square shopping plaza in south Sebring, the second is located on U.S. 2 7 just south of Lake Placid.

E veryones forgotten about Halloween by t hen. Theyre in Thanksgiving mode, F ansler said. Fansler admitted he has gotten many q uestions on why he broke tradition and h eld the citys Halloween festivities on H alloween this year. Fansler had one simple answer. Its about the kids. If they look on the calendar and see that its Oct. 31 and they arent going out trick or treating, youre probably going to have more of a headache than you would if you just took them out and let them stay out and eat candy until 9 oclock, Fansler said. Some people that wish they had kids, myself included, are wanting to go out and have fun and celebrate. Its Oct. 31, its Halloween, lets go out and lets do it.

Ag-Venture has become a widely recognized program in the county, attracting more and more sponsors and volunteers each year. Students will learn about things from alligators to citrus, soil and water conservation to grapes in the hands-on stations. The students will visit seven of the 14 stations during the program, Daum said. Ag-Venture is not only for students but for families and friends as well. Night Time Ag-Venture is set for Oct. 29.

Im really excited because hes trying to get Logan to come sing as well. Hopefully he will, Daum said. The BBQ dinner will feature $12 plates for adults and $6 plates for children. Dinner includes steak, baked potato, green beans, corn on the cob, roll and desert. All of the money raised at the dinner will go directly back into A gVenture. We dont make a profit or anything on the dinner but i t does bring a lot of new people out to the program. They go on the guided tours and they see how fun it is and love it and they wind up coming back to volunteer an d help the next year, said Daum.

By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comThe junior varsity football Blue Streaks are going for broke, yet again, when they face off against visiting Clewiston Thursday night. After going undefeated a season ago, Sebring has seen its unbeaten streak continue to go throughout the 2013 campaign. The season opener saw a 28-20 win against county rival Avon Park, followed up by a 24-6 win over the other county rival, Lake Placid, a week later. Then came dominating wins at DeSoto, 42-0, and against Mulberry, 28-6, to push their record to 4-0. On Thursday, Sept. 26, it was a rough-and-tumble battle at Faris Brannen Stadium against the Frostproof Bulldogs. But the Streaks hung on for a 34-30 win to keep their roll going. Against similarly tough competition, Sebring held on for nail-biting wins against Hardee at home and on the road at Fort Meade. But closing out the season undefeated will be no easy task as the Tigers come in sporting a strong record themselves. At 5-1, Clewistons only loss thus far came at the hands of Plantation America n Heritage, and they sport wins over the likes of Okeechobee and Fort Lauderdales Archbishop McCarthy. It promises to be a great match-up at Firemens Field with a lot on the line as these two junior varsity powerhou ses square off.

The Dragons looked to atone for one more of their three losses on the season Tuesday night, celebratin their Senior Night with a match against Sebring. See Fridays News-Sun for a recap of the contest. Nine straight for Lake Placid By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA The losses are mounting and the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers are running out of explanations for why their season has gone sour and what they can to do to turn it around. A31-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles dropped the Bucs to 0-5, and the team has dropped 10 of 11 dating to last year. The offense has struggled to score points, and an improved defense has been unable to protect second-half leads in four of the teams five losses. Coach Greg Schiano was jeered as he left the field at Raymond James Stadium. He says he understands fans are frustrated, but remains confident he can get the Bucs headed in the right direction soon. It doesnt matter if you lose by one or you lose by 21, a loss is a loss, Schiano said Monday. But when you say, What makes you feel like youre going to win?it is that we had plenty of opportunities to win every football game weve been in this year and we have found ways to lose them, the second-year coach added. I am accustomed to being on the team that finds ways to win them. So, Im not doing my job and Ive done it before and need to do it again, where we expect it and we go do those little things that allow you to win. Schiano is 7-14 since leaving Rutgers to take over a team that lost the final 10 games of 2011. The Bucs have spent generously to upgrade talent, bringing in Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson on offense and Vincent Jackson and Carl Nicks on defense, but have gotten little for their investment in terms of victories. Players say its a time to stick together instead of pointing fingers. And Schiano said the team cannot allow distractions onand off-the-field to disrupt its focus. In addition to dealing with a messy split with quarterback Josh Freeman, who wa s benched and later released, the Bucs have also been cop ing with three members of th e team being diagnosed with MRSA, a staph infection thats difficult to treat because it is resistant to man y common antibiotics. This is the most competitive sports league in the world and we have to find a way to win, Schiano said. Whatever the distraction s are, we collectively have to push them to the side, the coach added. It doesnt mean you dont care about them. It doesnt mean you dont do the things that are needed to be done. But were here for a reason. To win football games. We need to do that. We havent, but were going to. It wont be easy with a rookie quarterback. Mike Glennon, a thirdround draft pick out of North Carolina State, made his second pro start against Philadelphia. He threw for 273 yards, two touchdowns and one Struggling Schiano, Bucs searching for answers See BUCS, B4 KAREEM COPELAND Associated PressTALLAHASSEE F amous Jameis versus T he Tajh Mahal of F ootball. Hyped freshman versus d ecorated senior. Heisman hopefuls J ameis Winston and Tajh B oyd will duel in an A tlantic Coast Conference s howdown Saturday when N o. 5 Florida State travels t o Death Valley to meet N o. 3 Clemson. Theres not much diff erence in the signal c allers. At least not to a couple o f former NFLexecut ives. This will be a game that will match up probably the two best quarterbacks on the field at one time this season, said Gil Brandt, NFLMedia senior analyst. I dont know of (another matchup) that will have two quarterbacks that are as good as these guys. Brandt helped build the Super Bowl-winning Dallas Cowboys as vice president of player personnel from 1960 to 1989. He said both of the ACC QBs have promising NFLfutures. I dont think in the long run you can go wrong on either one. Both of them will be players on Sunday, Brandt said. Boyd is a shorter guy. When youre a little shorter, you look like youre a better athlete. But I think that theyre both very, very good athletes. Both have that very good speed for the position. I think Winston just may have a little stronger arm. Both of those guys have got enough talent that it doesnt make any difference what offense theyre running. As quarterbacks, theyre athletic, theyre strong-armed, theyve got accuracy, theyve got everything that you want. Boyd (6-foot-1, 225 No. 5 Florida St, No. 3 Clemson features QB duel See DUEL, B4

Swim meet sees strong efforts from all county teams i nterception, but was unable t o generate more than a f ourth quarter field goal a fter halftime. Tampa Bay has failed to s core an offensive touchd own in the third or fourth q uarter this season, and have b een outscored 48-13 overall i n the second half. Rian Lindells 27-yard f ield goal finished a 16-play, 9 0-yard drive that lasted n early eight minutes and enabled the Bucs to pull within 21-20 on Sunday. The defense, however, couldnt do its part to keep it close. The Eagles needed just 76 seconds to move 80 yards in three plays, pulling away on Nick Folessecond TD pass to DeSean Jackson. Its the little things that we are not focusing on that we need to focus on. Weve got to be consistent throughout the whole game, Revis said. I dont think weve yet this year played a consistent game, where everybody is really in-synch playing from the first quarter to the fourth quarter. While he remains confident he can get the Bucs turned around, Schiano declined to discuss specifics of the message he gave to players when they gathered Monday. My belief, just in general, is to keep it real. This is where we are. This is what we did. Not they or us, we. And this is what we need to do, Schiano said. Knute Rockne stuff. Theres a time and a place for it, but theyre grown men that are busting their guts to win, Schiano added. Theyre as disappointed as I am. Our job as coaches is to decipher, look at and then give them constructive feedback, and help them move forward. Thats what were going to do. Continued from B1 Bucs, Revis look for consistency Associated PressDALLAS (AP) Victor Oladipo had 12 points and 11 rebounds and fellow rookie Manny Harris scored all nine of his points in the fourth quarter to help the Orlando Magic to a 102-94 preseason victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. Maurice Harkless had 16 points for the Magic (1-2), while ETwaun Moore added 13, Tobias Harris 12 and Solomon Jones and Kris Joseph 11 apiece. Dirk Nowitzki had 24 points and Monta Ellis added 16 for the Maveric ks (1-2), who trailed by as many as 20 points in the first quarter but led 73-72 after three. Mavericks rookie Gal Mekel was the only starter who played in the fourth quarter. Orlando was 10 for 17 from the field (59 percent ) in the fourth quarter. Harris made a 3-pointe r and went 6 of 6 from the free throw line. Magic beat Mavericks p ounds) and Winston (6-4, 2 28) may be on opposite e nds of their collegiate c areers, but have the same m ission. The Tigers (6-0, 4-0 ACC) a nd Seminoles (5-0, 3-0) b oth have national champio nship aspirations. S aturdays winner moves a s tep closer at a title shot. Boyd, a senior, has edge i n experience and was the A CC offensive player of the y ear in 2012. He and Winston are either N o. 1 or No. 2 in the confere nce in total offense, total o ffensive touchdowns, yards p assing per game, pass effic iency, completion percenta ge and touchdown passes. That doggone guy is s trong, hes elusive, he m akes all the throws, said F lorida State coach Jimbo F isher, gushing over Boyd. Hes a leader. ... I mean, the g uy is an outstanding playe r. Boyd has moved up to No. 4 on the ACC career yards p assing list with 9,836 and i s on pace to finish No. 2 b ehind former North C arolina State quarterback Phillip Rivers. His 88 touchdown passes are seven shy of Riversconference record. Former Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Sam Wyche has watched Boyd closely while living in Pickens County, South Carolina. Hes impressed by Boyds growth into a fundamentally sound quarterback that leads with poise. Hes on time with his throws. He carries the ball in the correct position, Wyche said. Ive really been proud of him because of how hes handled his movement into stardom. Both QBs are mobile, but in different ways. Brandt said Boyd has a tendency to take off more. Hes three inches shorter and shiftier. Winstons size allows him to muscle out of sacks. He uses speed to find space while keeping his eyes downfield, a trait that resulted in weekly highlight touchdowns. Seminoles tackle Cameron Erving said Winstons directive is, Dont get beat inside, I wont get sacked. Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables described Winston as Adrian Peterson playing quarterback. Teammates say his competitiveness is unmatched. Hes going to be a ridiculous quarterback, Boyd said of Winston. Hes a great player, I love watching him play. Great competitor. He just goes out there and lays it on the line, thats what its all about. I dont like watching guys who dont go out there and compete. Does so much for his team, puts his team on his back and thats what its all about. Both Winston and Boyd have kept tabs on the other. Boyd wants to outperform the freshman while Winston insists hes not into the head-to-head hype. Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Football (Manziel), Tajh, I always watch their stuff, said Winston, who also mentioned Peyton Manning, Michael Vick, Randall Cunningham and Joe Montana. Just to peep their game. People always talk about greatness. ... If you can see other things in other people that you can add to your game, thats how you get better. Im looking for extraordinary things. ... Things that they do that I feel I can do. Things that no one else can do, because those guys are unique in what they do. I just like watching and learning new things. Everything is new for Winston. This will be his first trip to Memorial Stadium, where the Seminoles havent won since 2001. The Tigers scoring defense ranks No. 10 in the country and will be the most talented unit Winston has faced. National and conference championships are on the line. I think the biggest thing for quarterbacks to excel, they have to learn to read defenses, Brandt said. And the way to learn to read defenses is to play a lot of snaps. That could give Boyd a slight edge over Winston. Everyone will have an eye on this highly anticipated matchup, including Heisman voters.

You might want to watch the citys bustling food scene. Nashville has long lured musicians looking for a break, but lately the city has seen a rush of top notch chefs and restaurateurs, too. And its largely thanks to those same musicians. Not only did the music (industry) bring money, stable money, into this town, it also brought people, people from all over the country and the world, to live in Nashville, says Roderick Bailey, who recently was named the Southeasts best new chef by Food & Wine magazine. Those people brought worldly palates. And an expectation that those palates could be catered to. The Kings of Leon, for example. Band bassist Matthew Followill says the bands constant touring exposed its members to all manner of great food. And they wanted it when they came home to Nashville. Alot of the people in the food industry are also big music fans, Followill said at the bands Nashville studio. We kind of felt like Nashville didnt have a really good food scene going on. And it has changed for sure, in the past three, four, five years and there have been a lot of great restaurants that have come in. But for a while it was kind of lacking in that area compared to some of the other cities on the same scale. Thats changing. Fast. Last year alone nearly 75 new restaurants opened. Now Followills older brothers, Caleb and Nathan the foodies of the band are able to easily rattle off favorite Nashville eateries Husk, The Catbird Seat, Rolf & Daughters, City House and Baileys restaurant, Silly Goose, places that arent just great locally, but known nationally. And that has the players on the citys music scene lending a hand to spread the word that good eats have arrived. Bands and artists like Kings of Leon, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and even Taylor Swift have been talking up the citys fine restaurants and neighborhood favorites in national publications. And last month, the Followill brothers brought in top chefs from the Food Network, New York and Los Angeles to serve their creations alongside local restaurants and chefs at the bands inaugural Music City Eats festival. So now the theme has changed, now its a celebration of Nashville, Caleb Followill said of the festival. Cause we have a lot of young, great chefs that are trying to do something spe cial and I want Nashville to become one of the Southern food meccas that it has potential to be. City Houses Tandy Wilson, a Tennessee native who creates delicious Italian pastas and pizzas with Southern ingredients, said having musicians as regular customers fits into his style of dining. Its kinda opened some doors to a little bit of frien dship and you figure out tha t were not all that different, Wilson said. I find a lot of these guys we can have the same conversations. When they go to a different city, they go eat somewhere. They want to talk about that. Musicians play up Nashville food scene APPhoto/Mark Humphr ey People attend a Willie Nelson concert at the Southern Ground Music & Food Festival in Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 28. Events like the festival provide a link between the city's established music scene and its growing food influence.

They were able to visit the green houses where a wide variety of plants were being raised by the inmates, under the supervision of Officer Tommy Sauls. House plants, outdoor plants, orchis, tropical plants, shrubs and ground covers were in abundance. Plants were available for purchase, and the garden club members came away with wagon loads of plants. The facility is open to the public twice a year so that everyone can see the work that is being done at the nursery. District IX of the Florida Federation of Gardeners supports this project, and the chair of the plant therapy program, Pat Shira, was at the nursery to greet everyone. District IX director Glenda Dawson toured the facility as well. Members of garden clubs as far away as Punta Gorda and Fort Myers came to purchase plants. The plants grown at the nursery are used to landscape government properties and are available to garden clubs for their landscape projects. The inmates are trained in cultivating, pruning, fertilizing, transplanting and general care of plants to enable them to have a career in the landscape field. Warden Tim Sheffield was also in attendance and commented that he is happy to be in this area, that he loves his job at APCI, and is proud of the job Sauls is doing with the plant therapy program. Sauls said his dream is to have a hydroponic garden at the facility. Pulled pork sandwiches made by Sheffield and baked beans prepared by Sauls were on the menu for the day. Cupcakes and brownies were baked by the mother of Sauls. The food was so delicious that it was sold out, leaving many wishing they had come earlier. The Avon Park Founders Garden Clubs next meetin g was Oct. 12 with a program on dragon fruit. For information call 452-1927.

Now that I eat a Paleo d iet, my plate looks a lot diff erent than itonce did. No l onger do we eat rice, cousc ous or pasta at my house. When you live without g rains and avoid starchy f oods like potatoes,meals c an be a little bit challenging f or the first little while ..until you learn to think o utside the traditional side d ish. One of the best side e ffects of following a primar ily proteinandveggieb ased diet is that you get c reative with your produce because,well, you need something to fill up that plate. Vegetables around me live in fear because they know they will be eatenwith wild, reckless abandon. I want you to live with that same passionfor veggies so here?s a little inspiration to help you start thinkingbeyond starch.Non-starch side dishes to exploreBell peppers. Oh, how I adore a saut of bell peppers and onions.Cooked in some butter or coconut oil with a sprinkle of sea salt andsome ground pepper, this side dish is delicious with almosteverything, but especially with grilled meats. Greens. Look at salad as being worthy of taking up more space on yourplate. I have written about salads many times, but I encourage you toexperiment with the green stuff to see what you like best. Create akale salad. Wilt a variety of chard and beet greens. Enjoy dandeliongreens and spinach. There are more than enough greens to eat adifferent one each day. Cauliflower. Roast it, steam it and puree it into a mash. I love mycauliflower and you will never catch me without this deliciousvegetable in my fridge. Sweet potatoes. Yes theyre starchy, but their nutritional profilemakes sweet potatoes worthy of being enjoyed often. Roast them forbest results. Zucchini noodles. Did you know you can julienne zucchini into noodles?Its true. What a great way to get in some more veggies while cuttingout starchy sides. Mushroom and zucchini. Saut some zucchini and mushrooms together withwhatever seasoning you like for a tasty treat. This makes a nice sidedish for a spicy main. Sliced cucumbers. Cool and refreshing cucumbers make a wonderful sidedish for spicy curries. Why fill up on starchy rice when you can addmore veggies to your diet? Cabbage slaw. Finely sliced cabbage (red or green) mixed with adressing of Greek yogurt, cider vinegar, honey and some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper makes a fantastic side dish. Guilt free,too!

Where does the coupon go? How does the store get paid? What about my store coupons? They are all such interesting questions. Who knew that in 1888 when Asa Candler created what we know believe was the first coupon (for a free glass of Coke) or in 1909 when C.W. Post created a coupon for $0.01 off his Grape Nuts cereal that in 2013 so much would go into redeeming a coupon like huge clearinghouses for coupon redemption, coupon laws, rebates etc. Ashort recap of last weeks column: Manufacturer creates the coupon, consumers clip and redeem the coupon at checkout, the store sends in the coupon for redemption and then the store gets paid back plus a handling fee from the manufacturer. With store coupons it is a bit different. It is a common misconception that the store is just offering a coupon and taking a loss just to sell more products or get the customer in the door. Coupons are a multi-billion dollar industry, from the manufacturer to the store level. It is a big business. Stores can get reimbursed from a variety of different ways. The only type of store coupon that does not apply is for the house brands. For example store brand bread for store brand cereal. The manufacturer can offer a discount for X amount of products with each store (example: Save 20 percent on Olay products.) And another way the manufacturer offers a discount is with in-house store coupons. This is the coupon you will find in the store sale ad. For example: Cheerios tells your local grocery store they can offer a $0.50 off per box with an in house (store) coupon. Your store sells 100 boxes of Cheerios with this coupon and 200 boxes without the coupon. Cheerios will reimburse t he store $50 for the sale/coupon and the store makes the profit off the 200 boxes of cereal sold at regular price. It is a winwin for the store as well. Many stores will offer other rewards like fuel perks, loyalty points, gift cards etc. It is very benef icial for the consumer as well as the store to offer and accept coupons.

A store coupons life cycle, Part 2 DearAbby: My 17-yearo ld daughter confided that s he has become sexually i nvolved with her boyfriend a nd asked if I would buy c ondoms for her. I agreed t hat she should protect hers elf and bought her a box of 1 2. Aweek later, she informed m e that she needed another 1 2-pack. When I asked why s he had run out so quickly, s he confessed that she has b een supplying them to her g irlfriends. Apparently they c ant confide in their moms t he way she can with me. My dilemma is that cond oms are expensive and, on o ne hand, I dont want to be t he one supplying a group of k ids. On the other hand, if I c an help to prevent an u nwanted pregnancy, maybe i ts worth it. What do you t hink I should do? Safe Sex Advocate in Illinois DearSafe Sex Advocate: I f your daughters friends a re old enough to be sexuall y active, they and their b oyfriends should also be r esponsible enough to prov ide their own birth control. G enerally, teens do not need t he permission of their pare nts to receive information about it. Because you want to help them avoid unwanted pregnancies (as well as STDs), direct them to the nearest Planned Parenthood Center for low-cost or nocost birth control and instruction on how to use it. There are 18 of these health centers in Illinois. To find the one closest to you, visit plannedparenthood.org. DearAbby: I am the mother of three wonderful girls. The problem is my husband thinks the way to make them love him is by allowing them everything I dont. Ill give you some examples: I dont let the girls eat anywhere except at the table, so my husband brings treats into the family room. I try to limit high-sugar/fat items like chips and candy, which he buys for them on a regular basis. I also try to adhere to a regular bedtime schedule, while he thinks nothing of stretching lights-out to an hour or more later. Then he complains that the girls wont listen to him, so I must be in charge of the discipline. While this makes him Fun Daddy in our house, it makes me Mean Mommy in Ohio DearMommy: It appears youre not just raising three wonderful girls, but also coping with an immature, overgrown boy. Parenthood is supposed to be a united, consistent partnership, a team effort. Your husband is sabotaging you and ignoring that one of the responsibilities of parenthood is establishing rules and limits that children should live with. Your husband needs parenting classes, and if thats not possible, some sessions with a child behavior expert who can explain the consequences of what hes doing to his daughters in the name of being Fun Daddy.From my perspective, there isn't anything funny about it. You have my sympathy. DearAbby: I work at a senior retirement community, and the residents have a Halloween party each year. In the past, there were prizes for the three best costumes. However, last year they stopped giving prizes because one of the residents is a professional artist and costume maker, and the association felt it would be unfair to the others to have him compete. This year it was decided not to hold the contest at all. The residents are disappointed. How can they continue to have the costume contest and include the professional?

Officials on the island of Phuket, 420 m iles south of Bangkok, said Monday t he bar owner faced charges of obscenit y and operating an entertainment venue without a permit. Local district chief Weera Kerdsirimongkon said the man was arrested Saturday as part of a crackdown on shows featuring naked dancers. Authorities found out about this bar the morning after Rihanna tweeted about it, but we were not able to catch them violating the law until Saturday night, Weera said. We had been waiting for them and finally caught them red-handed. Weera said the bar owner could face up to one months imprisonment and a fine of up to 60,000 baht ($1,900). This isnt the first arrest triggered by Rihannas postings on social media. A photo of her with a slow loris, a squirrel-like animal with big eyes, on Instagram led local police to arrest a 20-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy, who could face charges of possession of protected animals. The charge carries a penalty of up to four years in prison and a 40,000 baht ($1,300) fine. Thai bar owner arrested following Rihannas tweets
Page B10 News-SunWednesday, October 16, 2013 www.newssun.com W hats Cooking Last week, I was in the H eartland all week wrapping up l oose ends at the hospital and at h ome. I really enjoyed seeing e veryone at work and around t own. I got to play some golf w ith some of my great friends a nd spent some quality time with f amily as well. Now I am back up in T allahassee, starting to get settled h ere and starting to make some n ew friends. The house we got h as an outdoor kitchen and I must s ay that is what did it for me w hen we were shown the house. T he outdoor kitchen has a grill, a s moker, a large prep area and a s mall fridge to store our favorite b everages, so I am sure we will e ntertain folks in our back your o ften. As we were packing up the h ouse, we were buying many r eady-made foods from the local s upermarkets and stared to build u p leftovers. On the last night in t he house, I decided to see how w ell I could repurpose these s mall amounts of leftovers that w e had into one meal and it was p retty good, if I do say so myself. I started by getting out everyt hing that I wanted to use up and t hen thinking of how best to comb ine them. I had flour tortilla s hells, half of a roasted chicken, s ome curried white rice with g reen peppers and broccoli, some f eta cheese and two nectarines. I t hought some kind of taco or ques adilla was where I was going w ith this. I pulled the meat from t he chicken and folded it into the c urried rice. Then I sliced the n ectarine into wedges. I warmed the curry rice and c hicken mixture in the microwave w ith the tortilla shells and diced t he feta cheese into small pieces. We sat down and made tacos w ith our leftovers. I thought at f irst the flavor of the feta next to t he curry would be strange, howe ver with the added flavor of the n ectarine and small amount of fat f rom the chicken, they were awes ome. I love it when you discover n ew flavor combinations just by t rying new things or in the case using what you got. I will make this dish again for d inner for Lauren and I and our f riends could come dine with us. I f I were to make this again witho ut using leftovers, this would be t he recipe. Cheers, Chef.
