They are doing this by expanding their recruitment program this fall with an in-service continuing education class. They are inviting their current volunteers to bring friends along who are also interested in the program. The training for new volunteers will be held from Sept. 18-23. For already-established volunteers, the continuing education class will be held on Aug. 28. A large part of the focus of these classes will be back-to-school topics, covering how to collect supplies for children and talk to principals, teachers and other school ofcials about getting records and other important documents. By doing this, they want to have more help for all children involved in dependency court due to familial situations leaving them in need of new guardians. Guardian ad Litem is a program based around helping children who have no one else to help them in court after being abused, neglected or abandoned. Volunteers step in to negotiate for them in court, as well as help them transition into new living situations later. Right now, there are around 75 to 95 children caught up in dependency court in Highlands County, according to Guardian ad Litem recruiter and nine-year veteran Dawn Shinskey, who is based in Bartow. Around 80 percent of those children have representation from Guardian ad Litem. The number of children is very uid, Shinskey said. Kids are coming and going (from dependency court) at all times. Shinskey also said the Guardian ad Litem program wants the volunteers to minglewith one another so as to better cover the needs of children. If some volunteers have school or basic living supplies that other volunteers children need, this will come in handy, Shinskey said.

BY LARRY GRIFFIN STAFF WRITER SEBRING Highlands Regional Medical Center is one of the hospitals that fell victim to a large-scale database hack that stole information about 4.5 million patients across the United States hospitals. The data stolen includes names, addresses, birthdays, telephone numbers and social security numbers, according to a statement from Community Health Systems (CHS), the parent company of HRMC. The attacks are believed to have occurred between April and June 2014, the statement said, and to have affected patients who visited the medical center in the last ve years. However, the document also said that some information, such as medical information or credit card information, was not stolen. The culprit is believed to be a China-based group looking for intellectual property, the statement said. Using highly sophisticated methods to bypass security systems, they stole a wide amount of information.HRMC hacked along with 205 other U.S. hospitalsChina-based hackers believed to be involved BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING The Childrens Museum of the Highlands has ordered a second round of craft beer this year, and hopes to double the number of people tasting brew to support the museum. The First Round of Beer Craft Beer Festival in September 2013 drew 300 people to raise funds for the museum. Event organizers have brought the event back with the hopes of getting 500 people to join in the party on The Circle in downtown Sebring. The event will be 6-9 p.m. Sept. 6 a Saturday evening featuring more than 30 different beers from a variety of brewers, along with food from local restaurants.

Chris Bateman, 25-yearold re ghter with Highlands Lakes Volunteer Fire Department, was found dead by his father at approximately 5:30 a.m. Sunday at their home on East Horse Hammock Road. He was a good guy, a great volunteer, said Highlands Lakes Fire Chief Earl Gray. Its shocking. I cant believe it. Chief Deputy Mark Schrader said his detectives have ruled out foul play and are investigating the death as a self-in icted gunshot wound. Schrader declined to give other details as the case is still under investigation. A nal determination will be made by the medical examiner, including toxicology tests, which could take as long as six months, Schrader said. Bateman had been a volunteer re ghter for nearly ve years, Gray said, but in all that time, he never saw severe emotional issues.Volunteer firefighter discovered dead at home after wreck B1 SEE HRMC | A7SEE ANGELS | A7SEE BEER | A7SEE BATEMAN | A7 Pudd Snacks!11 S Sillil o:.

September is National H unger A ction Month. Comfort Keepers Sebring is asking the community to make food donations to the Feed Seniors Now food drive to benet the Sebring Senior Cen ter and raise awareness for this growing epidemic that impacts thousands of H ighlands County elder ly trying to remain healthy and independent. The food drive will be S ept. 1 thr ough Nov. 30. National Hunger Action Month is in September, but seniors go hungry all year, said Gail Bagley, di rector of Educational P r ograms at Comfort Keepers Sebring. We cannot ght every factor affecting hunger, but w e can star t here in Highlands County by creating awareness about the issue and helping family members become more awar e of the signs of hunger and malnutrition. H unger can lead to malnutrition and other serious health problems in seniors. The lack of an adequate diet can hav e an immediate impact on the body mind, and the safety of senior citizens. I f seniors fail to consume the appr opriate amount of nutr ients their bodies may become weak or unstable and their minds may become fatigued. The combination of these two effects will signicantly increase the risk of a fall and other accidents. I n addition, malnutr ition can affect the body s immune system and leave seniors more vulnerable to diseases or illnesses. As many as 85 per cent of seniors in the car e of others ar e at risk for malnutrition and its consequences. Signs of malnutrition may include sudden weight gain or loss br uising, or dental difculties, sudden changes in taste, or a gener al disinter est in eating. For seniors, malnutrition means the potential for increased hospital stays, incr eased health complications early entry into assisted living facilities or even premature death. I n r esponse to a growing need for awareness about senior nutrition, the C omfor t Keepers system has launched a nationwide campaign called N ourish Senior Life to create awareness for the impor tance of a healthy diet for those 65 and o v er. This senior nutrition campaign aims to help seniors preserve their independence by providing diet and nutrition information, encour agement and necessities.

If he gets ticketed, however, their best ad vice to him is to ght it in cour t. Chair man Greg Har ris said this Tuesday after discussion about allo wing golf carts in Avon Park Lakes, specically the cart used b y B ennett to ride from his home to Lake Olivia to sh as part of recreational therapy. His step-mother, Peggy Bennett, argued to the board Tuesday that under the Amer icans with Disabilities Act, Brandon is allowed to use a golf cart as his mobility device. S he said after talking extensively with ofcials at the D epar tment of Justice, she lear ned the county could make an ex ception under Flor ida Statutes 316.212 to allo w B randon, 23, to use the golf cart on pavement or could designate the route to the lake for golf carts. County Attorney Ross Macbeth argued that because its a state law, the county doesnt have authority to alter it. He also said allow ing a golf cart on one or two str eets in the largely rural subdivision would encourage other users and the roads arent safe. Bennett argued that the roads from her house are marked 25 mph, and would meet the state require ment of safety for golf car ts but Macbeth said studies by County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete showed people were speeding on those r oads Thats an enforcement issue, Peggy B ennett said, suggesting H ighlands County S her iff deputies should focus on slowing traf c. They re not going to be there 24/7, Mac beth answered. G av arrete said he could use trafc calming structures, like speed tables but they are expensive $2,000-$4,000 each and would need approval from 70 percent of affected r esidents Not everybody likes them, Gavarrete said. The county could install signs to light up and giv e the dr iver his or her speed. Those are $2,000-$2,500 each. Macbeth said he and Gavarrete spoke with the Avon Park Lakes Board of Governors about setting up a spe cial benet district to pay for r oad impr ove ments, but with the r elativ ely low number of people using carts, Macbeth recommended each golf cart owner pay to have the carts make str eet legal as low-speed vehicles. Such vehicles require a drivers license, and Brandon doesnt have one, Peggy Bennett said. He has Kniest dys plasia, a rare bone disor der that causes enlarged joints making walking painful shortened stature, and both vision and hear ing pr oblems. At 42 inches tall and 90 pounds, Brandon cant walk to the lake, cant safely ride a mobility scooter there and hasn t been able to obtain a drivers license. C ommissioner J im Brooks said the best option was for Brandon to use his cart under ADA regulations and ght it if he gets a ticket. We were told by legal counsel to bring this to county commissioners, Bennett said. S he said going to court could cost county taxpayers for a legal battle and possible ADA fees Thats not what we want to do, Bennett said.County to Bennett: Use golf cart, fight if ticketed Phil Attinger/News-SunBrandon Bennett, 23, sits on his EZGo golf cart at his parents Avon Park Lakes home. l i"AlServing the Community Since 1969Advertise in Advertise inThe Journa l The JournalYour hometown Your hometownnewspaper newspaperNEWS-SUN HIGIILV DS + + s'SCV NEWS-SUN HIGIILV\DS,....

www.newssun.comWednesday, August 20, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | A5 VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSThe City of Los Angeles is propos ing cash prizes for those who get o u t to vote. With the primary days away the News-Sun wants to express what a terrible idea this is. Yes, its embarrassing that Americans do not take advantage of their ability to choose their leaders, especially when so many other people in the world risk their lives to vote or have to live with baldly corrupt elections. But offering cash incentives to prompt folks right here at home to exercise their right to vote is just wrong. We oppose any such idea making its way to Florida for two important rea sons: Democracy only works when its citizens ar e involved; and voting is not a right, it is a solemn responsibility. The idea of paying people to vote is nothing less than bribery encourag ing people who have not examined the candidates or issues to v ote blindly It reminds us of dog training do a tr ick, get a tr eat. Selecting leaders and choosing policies is no stupid human trick worthy of David Lettermans late night television show. We cannot stand behind cash hand outs to voters. What we can do is urge area residents to get out and vote in the Aug. 26 primary election. Sunday, the News-Sun will be publishing pro les of the candidates for school board to help y ou make an infor med decision. B ecause incumbents Don E. E lwell, county commission District 2; and Jack L. Richie, county commission District 4 have no opposition, they have already retained their ofces. Both have done a good job in ofce good enough that no candidates stepped up to challenge them for the job. County Court Judge Anthony L. Rit enour, likewise is unopposed and will r etur n to the bench. The only candidate to be unopposed for The School Board of Highlands County is William Bill Brantley who represents school board District 4 in Lake Placid. Two other seats, however, are in contention: Districts 1 and 5. In District 1, incumbent Ronnie Jack son is challenged by Charlene Edwards and Al Joe H inson. Five candidates are vying for the District 5 seat. Jill Compton is the in cumbent after being appointed to the school boar d r ecently by Gov. Rick Scott to take the seat vacated when Andy Tuck was selected to serve on the State Board of Education. The other candidates are: Clinton Culverhouse; William Pep Hutchinson III; Trevor Murphy; and William Tres Stephen son III. And, nally a tax issue is on the primary ballot extending the county commission s one cent infrastructure sales tax through 2034. All of these are important positions and issues. The News-Sun believes in terest in the future of Highlands Coun ty, who will lead the education of our childr en, and ho w are tax dollars are spent are plenty of reasons to get out and vote.

With smiles, love and laughter,L. MCQUEEN S mM A llLL Treasurer, Tobys ClownsDo political elections still matter?To those of us who love the old America, the Covenant America of our Forefathers, our nation is no w lost. Sixty-eight per cent of Hispanics in Amer ica, 98 per cent of Black Americans, and all white liberal Americans have seen to that. Two questions abide: First, how did we lose our nation?; and second, how can we get it back? As to the first ques tion: I believe we lost it because w e never r equired an ethical covenant commitment of all those who immigr ated here. An oath to our Federal Constitution wasnt enough. There is a Higher Law to which, if no com mitment is made, then the C onstitution becomes r elative, and ceases to be absolute That Higher Law is Gods Mor al Law. As to ho w can w e get back our beloved Covenant America, short of an armed conflict? I may be wrong, but this is my belief on the issue: Take over one city at a time, one county at a time, one state at a time. All citizens must upon the Word of God lend allegiance to uphold the principles en shrined on Gods divine moral law, and the pr inciples of our State Constitutions, to wit: limited government; private pr oper ty; free enter prise; Biblical jurisprudence. Anything but this and were back to the humanistic, liberal and socialistic culture we are now immersed in. If we wait too long, this last r ecourse will be lost for ev er. We are sitting on the edge of the pr ecipice .BRUCE RR OE sslSS L ERSebring RR eader s upports Jill Compton for school boardIn Highlands County, our school system is a complex integration of people and programs that provide our children a quality education. This is why it is so important that those elected to the High lands County School B oar d are highly qualified, not only as educators, but in other areas as well. This is why I support Jill Compton for School B oar d. As an educator, Jill Compton is trained in multiple areas: Speech/Language, ESE, Regular Edu cation, Early Childhood and Administration. As a parent of twin bo ys Jill un derstands the importance of parent inv olv ement in the school system both in the classroom and at the county level. She can relate to those par ents who struggle to balance work and parenting. As a businesswoman in the community, Jill Compton is able to see the big pictur e which makes her very sensitive to the needs/ views of the taxpay ers of Highlands C ounty Jill is not a blind follower as she has demonstrated in recent School B oar d meetings, instead she wants all the facts to make an infor med decision on matters that she knows are important to both the education system and the taxpay ers Finally as a longtime friend, I know that J ill C omptons strong family values, experience in the educational setting and position in the business community are what makes her the best choice for my vote in the upcoming elections for School Board for Highlands County, District 5. ElEL IZA bB ETH SI ssSS ONLake PlacidI had decided a year ago to take a break from the local American Can cer Societys Relay for Life Then I learned that my cousins granddaughter had been diagnosed with N eur oblastoma, a rare form of cancer. Cedar wasnt even 6 months old at the time of her diagnosis. Then, of course ther e was Jade Jackson, the young Avon Park teen, who was also facing a struggle. I have watched her family deal with her diagnosis and have come to admire her aunt, Man dy Gooch, for her emotionally charged posts of something so personal. The game plan changed. I once again pledged to do what I could for the local Relay. I toyed with the idea of taking a break again. However, once again, I can feel the shift of the game plan under my feet. A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with cancer in both breasts. She had good insurance but never considered having a mammogram. She thought it was a waste of time since there was no history of breast cancer in her family. As though the Stage 4 breast cancer isnt enough, she has since learned she also has can cer in her blood, bones and a mass was found last w eek on her brain. Shes young. She has young children at home. She just found love again and remarried. Her whole life is ahead of her, but it took pains in both of her arms to get her to go to the doctor. Now her days are lled with radiation and then chemotherapy; nausea and prayer; love and support from all of her friends and family. Two other dear friends have been diagnosed with that horrible C word in the past week. One had her diseased ovaries re moved Monday; then they will decide what to do about the cancer in her spleen and kidneys. The other is determining the best method for ghting his bladder cancer. S o will I be taking a break next year from Relay? Not just no, but heck n o. The way I look at it, it s been a little more than three months since our Relay in Avon Park and I already have three new people dear to my heart to add to the long list of family and friends that I both Relay in memory of and in honor of. There are at least another seven more months to go before Relay returns. Cancer sure isnt tak ing a break from the people I care about, so Im not taking a br eak either If you dont Relay, at least make sure to get yourself screened. There are no excuses.Romona Washington is publisher and executive editor of the NewsSun and News-Journal.

Crowder said the mu seum held a handful of fundr aisers o ver the years, including Amazing Race, based on the scav enger -hunt reality show. They were fun, but nev er dr ew in enough funding. At the most, she said, Amazing Race raised $2,000. Last y ear s Craft Beer Fest raised $8,000, she said. She got the idea after attending a similar festival in Tampas H y de Park with her grown children, sam pling 2-ounce portions of unusual br ews It was such fun, she developed a unique version geared to the 25-40 age bracket the typical age of par ents whose children attended the museum. This demographic would hav e disposable income and a circle of friends they could bring to an event, she said. The big rules last year, she said, were no kids and no pets. This is an adults-on ly event, Crowder said. I ts not held at the museum or around children. We turned families (who arrived) with kids away last y ear . Other than that, the event sold out and lled the Circle with revelers. Crowder said she and other organiz ers gure that 500 people is the most they can accommodate on the Cir cle and still get people through the lines for beer samples and food, not that the lines were a problem last year. They took seles of each other, said Crowder. The event even brought back many Sebring-area na tives, she said. They saw people they hadn t seen since school.

After this years event, Crowder will retire from two and a half de cades spent founding and r unning the museum, and will mo ve back to her hometo wn of St. Petersburg, leaving the museum in the hands of her successor Getting to see these younger families in here is the best thing, Crowder said.

Batemans car had apparent ly been eastbound on the road and w ent off on the r ight shoulder on the approach to North Dressel Road, shortly before a curve, Schr ader said. The driver then appeared to have over-corrected to get the car back on the pav ement, sending the car sliding across the road.

BY LARR YY GRIFFINStaff WriterAVON PARK Saturdays annual Avon P ar k Picnic brought out the residents who have lived there the longest for an after noon of fun, friends and food. Among a lar ge crowd of high school graduates from the 1950s and s who have lived here all their lives, two new pi oneers were selected in M elvin and Wilma Kangeter. The Kangeters, who have seen several wars as well as a slew of societal changes all from comfor table seats in Avon Park, were grateful yet humble about their new status as Pioneers of Avon Park. A pioneer in the Avon Park Annual Pic nic tradition, is someone who has lived in A v on Park for at least 50 years. The central event of the afternoon was the speech given by Wilma Kangeter a 40-min ute remembrance of the old times in A v on Park as well as how she met Melvin when they were young. I had no particu lar plans after college, she said. I went to live in Meter, Ga., to live with relatives. Id been there two or three days, I guess. I took strolls around town. I heard this noise and realized it was the mufer on a car. This boy was hanging out the window and hol lering at me. Now, I didn t wave or any thing; I acted like I didn t see him. Time went on, and I didnt see him, but one day he got around to asking me for a date. I r ealized it was him driving that car. So now I like to tell people I married the rst man I met in G eor gia. Wilma then recalled the dramatic way their courtship turned into a marriage and was then disrupted by the war when Melvin was drafted. I got pregnant, she said, and he went off to Korea. Good timing, right? When Melvin re turned to Georgia after the wars end, Wilmas father got him a job with F lor ida Power and Electric in Avon P ar k. While she didnt initially think Melvin would be interested, it turned out he was and so after he got the job, the two moved down to Avon Park. Melvin worked for Florida Power from 1955 until 1994. The Kangeters had three children, three grand children and four gr eat-gr andchildren. Many of them were at the picnic to celebrate their accomplishments. The r est of the picnic was lled with good cheer and friendship among these old fr iends classmates and neighbors. The Avon Park chapters of both the Boy Scouts of America and the Future Farmers of Amer ica helped the Historical Society set up befor e the picnic After such a long period of time living in the small Avon P ar k community, the guests of the annual picnic were close-knit and comfortable. Old friends and classmates reunited and remi nisced about their ear lier years.Avon Park Pioneers remember how it used to be From left to right: Jean Jordan of the Avon Park Historical Society, new pioneers Wilma and Melvin Kangeter and Nancy Weber of the Historical Society pose for pictures at Saturdays annual picnic at the Community Center.

Kicking off the season with about 30 students is a great start. C oaching the girl s team is Krista Schult and her husband, Mathew Schult, is going to be coaching the bo y s team this year. During practice they run 3-7 miles, and on average ve miles it all depends on if they ar e going to train easy or hard that day.

Last y ear the boys made it to state, which they hadnt done in nearly 15 years and totaled a 15th-place nish in Class 3A.

All but two of last years roster were newcomers. We were a lot better than our record sho w ed, head coach Kim Crawford said at a recent practice. We had the talent, but it just didnt translate into wins. Something not lost on the players, who came from all over the country to join the Panthers. Oh the talent was there, but it was all so new and none of us had ever played to gether before so there was that adjustment, said Melanie Sandoval, a returning Libero from Georgetown, K entucky And with only two sophomores, it was kind of tough for them to help us all with the transition. But the benet of having so many fresh men last season, is that they ar e no w sophomores, with a year together under their belt, and the experience to meld in this y ear s newcomers. It is a lot different, said Jasmine Kelly, a middle from Houston, Texas. We were very wide-eyed last year, but now weve been through it and it has helped us blend the new players in. A carry over from last year is that the team is certainly not lacking in size, with Sandoval the only player listed at under 5-foot-8, and no less than four girls listed at 6-feet or taller. But the key will be, as it is on all volley ball teams, the setting, which falls into the hands of two fr eshmen, Kelsey Sanders from Wilmore, K entucky and B aylee Gunter from Selkirk, Manitoba. Thats actually one of our main strengths right now, Craw ford said. Both of our Lady Panthers look to realize potential Dan Hoehne/News-Sun//Baylee Gunter is one of two freshman setters that will be key to the Panthers success this season.SEE SFSC | A13 4PV a R.II

www.newssun.comWednesday, August 20, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | A13 BY DAN HOEHNE NEWS-S SUn N S SPORTS E EDITOR Less than three months into its mere existence, the Owls Fastpitch travel softball team can lay claim to being champions after winning an ISA Tour nament in Bartow the w eekend of of A ug. 10. An 18-U squad made up of girls from Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring, as well as Bar tow, Lake Wales and W auchula, came into being at the beginning of the summer under manager Heather B ar nes. Results at early tour naments were somewhat rag-tag, but sho w ed continued improvement in play and place in each ensuing tour nament. Though during the seeding round of this most recent tournament, it looked as if the team may hav e taken a step back. After leading most of their opening game against the Osceola Overdrive, the Owls fell short, and would lose to the Winter Haven Avengers in their next game as well. Our seeding games are always shaky for some reason, Barnes said. But once we start playing elimination, its like a switch comes on and they actually compete. That they certain ly did as the cr uised past the Outlaws by an 8-0 score behind the no-hit pitching of Bar tows Kalissa Sexton her rst of the summer. Then, in a r ematch with the Overdrive, they kept the pedal to the medal and powered to an 8-1 win. The heavy hitting continued into the nal game of the day against the A v engers as Avon Parks Victoria Perry, Lake Placids Raveen Gobourne and Lahna S edatol and Hardees Caryssa Johnson all had three hits apiece in the 9-0 win. I n S undays seminal round, the Owls put another hurting on the Overdrive in a 9-1 win. Ten of 11 batters had at least one hit during the game, with Go bourne belting an inside-thepar k home run. Soon after the win, ho w ever, heavy rains washed away the championship game. Though with their mar gin of victory over their scheduled opponent, the Avengers, the Owls w er e declared the champions. Weve made so many improvements in every aspect of the game, Barnes said. I am so impressed with how far they have come after only two and-a-half months. Theyve bonded as a team and that makes any coaches life easier. Its been a great summer and the girls have made this pro gram a success, she continued. I m looking forward to many mor e summers championships and trophies as w e help get these girls ready to play at the next level and get an education. setters are very strong and move the ball well. Assistant coach Chad Long also sees what should be strengths as the season moves on. We have the poten tial to be a very good defensiv e team, he said. We have size at the net and our back row is quick to the ball. But thats the funny thing about potential, it needs to be realized. Last years Panther squad was perhaps too young, too new to ful ly realize the potential they had. But with that exper ience behind them, they ar e in a much better position to make it come to fr uition. We denitely feel excited for the season, Kelly said. We have a lot of talent, strong and aggressive hitters and we cant wait to get on the court. That certainly showed this past Sat urday when the team took to the cour t in a scrimmage at Warner University. We saw great things from our freshmen, Crawford said. Sydney Durham and Elle Bar nett lead the team in kills and both our setters were outstanding. W e still have work to do, though, and we will focus on them in the gym this week. South Florida then jumps into the season Friday when they trav el to Ave Maria Univer sity for a tri-match beginning at 3 / p.m. Dates at F lorida College, Broward and Clear water Chr istian continue the start before the team holds its home opener Thursday Sept. 4, against Easter n F lorida College at 7 / p .m.

Carl Edwards scrolled across a stage at Joe Gibbs Racing and jokingly yelled, Surprise! There was no sur prise whatsoever about his for mal intr oduction Tuesday as a four th dr iver in the JGR Sprint Cup lineup. The move had been expected since at least May and intensied last month when R oush F enway Racing said Edwards was not returning in 2015. Edwards, who has driven for Roush for 12 years, will join a new fourth Toyota team for Gibbs next season. The No. 19 will be sponsored by Arris, a telecommunications company, in 17 of the races. JGR has been at three cars since 2005 and has held off expanding to the NASCAR-maxi mum of four full-time entr ies We felt like if we could get Carl, and we could get another sponsor, that this was the right time, Gibbs said. Edwards had been through a high-prole free agency once be fore, in 2011 when he was in the thick of the championship hunt. He ultimately spurred JGR in that bidding process to sign an extension with Roush, and although the negotiations were never a distraction, Ed wards lost the title that y ear to Tony Stewart on a tie-breaker. Edwards hasnt been a title threat since. He went winless in 2012 and missed the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, and although he made two trips to Victo ry Lane last season, he nished last in the 13-dr iver Chase eld. Edwards is currently ninth in the Cup standings with two wins The Chase begins next month, and he said hes determined to close out his Roush tenure with a champi onship for the No. 99 team. B ut when the season is over, his focus will quickly tur n to JGR, where he saw an opportunity for stability and consistency as a teammate to K yle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth. Sometimes youve just got to shake things up, youve got to do things differently, Ed wards said. When an oppor tunity like this comes up and the all the pieces come together this perfectly, for me I didn t want to look back and wonder what that would hav e been like I wanted to take the opportunity and go see what I could make of it. E dwards will be reunited with Kenseth, who was his teammate at R oush for nine seasons and had a frosty r elationship that w ent public in 2007 when Edwards confronted Kenseth after a race at Martinsville. Kenseth moved to JGR last season, won a series-high seven rac es and nished second in the championship r ace. Gibbs said Kenseth is the rst person the organization consulted when it entered the bidding for E dwar ds. Matt was awesome, he said, this guy, you get him over here, hes going to win races, Gibbs said.Gibbs hires Carl Edwards ../_r 1, ? _.F6.roa,djQemszwI4 t,:Family Elder LawA Firm Helping Seniors & Those Who Love Them

Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer didnt make Mike Pettines decision any easier. Good luck picking a starting quarterback after this mess, Coach. Manziel struggled to hit open receivers and added another ges ture to his repertoire a middle nger apparently aimed at the W ashington R edskins bench while Hoy er completed only two passes in v e ser ies. Neither the hot-shot rookie nor the nondescript sixth-year veteran looked ready to claim a N o 1 NFL gig, failing to live up to the big-time setting of a nal audition in the Cleveland Browns 2423 Monday night loss to the Washington Redskins. Pettine has said he plans to announce his regular season starter Tuesday. His choices are Man ziel, the No. 22 over all pick in the draft who completed 7 of 16 passes for 65 yar ds and a touchdown, and Hoyer, who was 2 for 6 for 16 yards. And those stats were padded by series against the Redskins backups. In the rst quar ter when Washingtons starters were in the game M anziel was 2 for 7 for 29 yar ds while Hoyer was 0 for 2. Manziel was even mocked by Redskins linebacker Brian Or akpo, who raised both hands and per for med the 2012 Heisman Trophy winners money gestur e after a sack b y teammate Ryan Ker rigan. M anziel appear ed to have a message of his own for the Redskins. He raised the mid dle nger of his right hand as he jogged away fr om the Washington sideline after a play late in the thir d quarter. To be fair, the rst two passes by Hoyer could be classied as drops by his receivers, but he also failed to move the team when an interception gave the Browns the ball at Washingtons 15 in the second quarter. After a running play and two incom pletions, including a pass high and thr ough the hands of Andrew Hawkins in the end zone, Cleveland had to settle for a eld goal. Looking for a hint as to which way Pettine is leaning? Its worth noting that Hoyer started for the second consecu tive game and played mostly with the rstteam offense while Manziel was sent out with the backups to play in the second half. Manziel took ad vantage by leading a 16-play 68-yar d drive capped by an 8-yard pass to Dion Lewis for Clevelands rst touchdown.Manziel struggles in Browns loss to Redskins YO ,ai e l tThe Scope of Oriental MedicineOriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology, dietarytherapy, exercise and bodywork based on traditional Oriental medicineprinciples.c ornerstoneI his system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the worldsH o s P i c E population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity in the& PALLIATIVE CARE West.lour local, not for-pro fir Hose:,,1--1,inu+ 1984.

Three of those Bet tye Hart, 63; Mary C ar ol Plott, 68; and Laura Bowen, 63, thought the series was great. Hart and Plott both noted that they have been only running in competitive races for just a couple of years while Bowen has been doing so a few years longer. I did it just to stay in shape, said Hart. When you get our age you have to do all kinds of stuff. Even though we might get down on ourselves about times, added Plot. We are always fast er than the guy on the couch. Y ou can quote that. Each said they par ticipated in the fourev ent ser ies because they run in a lot of the 5K runs held by Chet Brojek, and this one was different. For Brojek, the Sum mer Sunrise Series met and ex ceeded his expections. This is our rst year, he said. I say we had about 170 that participated in some fashion and about 85 ran all four. We are go ing to do it again next y ear The ideal I got from the Lakeland Runners Club, they did it about 15 y ears ago , Brojek added. Now they have over a 1,000. I dont want a thousand, but I think we can ev entually gr ow to 200-300. Brojek also stated that the cross country coaches need to be on board to help monitor their athletes during the summer months and to make sure they are logging in some miles.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, August 20, 2014 STR8UP Youth Ministry hosted its annual meeting Monday, Aug. 11 at its complex on South Main Avenue in Lake Placid. The audience of 15 included staff and members of the board of directors. President and founder Sammy Telesco led the session. Highlighting the meeting was Telescos announcement that STR8UP ministry has been awarded a grant of $10,500 from MidFlorida Credit Union. He said the money will be used to help add a second oor the ministry building. Talks are already underway regarding the addition, Telesco said, but no target dates were set. During the course of the meeting, Telesco also reported that the efforts of the SRT8UP team during cleanup after the Caladium Festival was noted as exceptionally well done in a note from Lake Placid residents Larry and Susie Lee. Before the ofcial meeting, Chad Varga Company vice-president Will Bennett gave a presentation regarding the book Bounce: Down is inevitable. Up is a choice. The book was written by Varga who played basketball at the University of Pittsburg from 1994-97 as a power forward. After college, Varga played professionally in Europe, leading two Spanish national teams in both scoring and rebounds and being named an All-Star three consecutive years. In his book, published in 2013, Varga deals with the lessons he learned growing up in a less than stellar home environment. Vargas core message is that anyone, even an abused, abandoned kid, can overcome the odds and obstacles in life and become a success. His passion is to help students discover their purpose and realize their dreams. Varga has spoken to more than 3 million students throughout America. STR8UP is considering adopting Vargas book and an accompanying journal as a ministry tool. Telesco also reported he and his wife, Dana, were set to take eight of the youth from STR8UP on a shing trip hosted by Good News Fishing Ministry in West Palm Beach. The Friday, Aug. 16 trip was a reward for the students selected.

As a panelist, Sanders will read and evaluate grant applications submitted from around the state. Last summer she and six other volunteers scored 21 applications submitted to the Arts in Education & Underserved Communities category. This year, because Sanders submitted salary assistance grant applications in that category for the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative and Tobys Clown Foundation, she is joining six others from around the state in evaluating 33 applications in the Multidisciplinary category. It takes between two to three hours to read and score each application, according to Sanders. Some of the applicants in the Multidisciplinary category are requesting close to $100,000 so its important that we get it right, she said. Later this month, the panelists will participate in a teleconference with representatives from the applicant organizations during which the panel can ask questions of organization representatives and then give them nal scores.

The Lake Placid Police Department conducted a CPR class Aug. 12 to raise funds for Bonecutter. The turnout for the fundraiser was more than expected with 19 students on hand to get their certication and show their support for Bonecutter. A total of $760 was collected in this effort, according to Lake Placid Police Chief James Fansler. More support came Saturday when a benet car wash was held at Signature Floors & Interiors on Interlake Blvd. in uptown Lake Placid with proceeds going toward Bonecutters medical expenses. The day was quite busy as cars were coming and going all day, despite dreary weather. Another car wash is scheduled for August 30 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the same location. The next benet for Bonecutter will open at 3 p.m. Sept. 6 at the American Legion on U.S. 27 in Lake Placid.

The dinner/dance will be Saturday, Nov. 1 at Lake Placid Elks Lodge 2661, located on County Road 621 East. Its important that all our shoppers and the students in our classes who may benet from an ADAcompliant facility, have it available, said co-op president Judy Nicewicz. Local volunteer grantwriter Nancy Sanders points out that accessibility is not just about having a handicapped bathroom or water fountain. Accessibility, particularly as it relates to grant applications, includes welcoming people with vision and hear ing problems too, she said. In addition, if a community has a large non-English-speaking population, accessibility includes having printed materials available in the prevalent second language and, with notice, a translator onsite. The Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative is in the process of having brochures and some handouts translated into Spanish. In the Town of Lake Placid, nearly half of the residents have been identied in recent census reports as being Spanish/ Latino, although no gures are available as to how many speak Spanish only. In a grant application currently being processed by the Florida Department of States Division of Cultural Affairs for a possible $20,000 salary assistance grant for the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative, accommodations such as having materials in Spanish was included. The co-op is planning to submit another grant application to the State in September for children for whom English is their second language. We have classes all the time for Englishspeaking children but until recently, we just didnt think about the children who might miss out on a valuable art experience due to language challenges, Nicewicz said. We are missing out on nearly half of Lake Placids population by not being fully accessible to them. We want to make our shopping and art class experience a positive one for as many people as possible. Sanders adds that in addition to opening up additional grant opportunities, its just the right thing to do.Benefit could help build handicap restroomsCELEBRATIONSJayla CallahanStephanie Elnora Callahan of Lake Placid announces the birth of a daughter, Jayla Nichole, at 7:22 p.m. on Aug. 11, 2014, at Highlands Regional Medical Center.

I cant imagine loving a man more than I love Wayne, and I know he feels the same about me. The problem is, hes always telling stories about things he has done, including past relationships, in graphic detail. I have heard all of them repeatedly, and Im sick of them. When I tell him this he says, Fine! I wont talk to you anymore. Wayne never talks about OUR past, present or future. How can I get him to stop reliving the good ol days and start focusing on our life together? CURRENT EVENT IN KENTUCKY DEAR CURRENT EVENT: Wayne may react defensively when you say youre sick of his stories because he feels you are criticizing him. Perhaps if you told him that hearing him dwell on past relationships is hurtful, he might be willing to enlarge his repertoire. If that doesnt help, its possible your husband feels his best years are behind him. Past conquests and adventures can be more fun to dwell on than the new lawnmower, the plumbing that needs replacement, which friends are sick and the most recent one who died. Things might improve if you work together to create activities that will spice up your lives and give him some new material. Try it. It might benet you both. DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with Bob for 12 years. He doesnt work and doesnt take care of our children because he says its not his responsibility. I have supported him all this time, yet nothing is good enough. He has cheated on me several times. During his third affair, he had two kids with the other woman. He doesnt understand why I dont trust him and why I insist on seeing his cellphone. The last time I was able to get ahold of it, he broke down the bathroom door trying to get it back. He threatens to move out, and if he does, that will be the last I hear from him. I would be relieved if he went. I have so much anger toward him. I love him, but at this point love doesnt have anything to do with it. I have asked him several times to leave, but he just keeps saying hell be leaving on his own terms. I cant continue like this anymore. He brings out the worst in me and I hate it. What do I do? HAD IT IN PHOENIX DEAR HAD IT: That you have tolerated this behavior for 12 years boggles my mind. Because this philandering freeloader has resided with you for so long, you may have to go through formal eviction proceedings to get rid of him. You have given him a free ride, and you may need the services of a lawyer to pry him out of there. If you do, consider it money well spent. DEAR ABBY: If a spouse keeps photos of a college sweetheart after 50 years, what does it mean? Does it mean he is still carrying a torch for that person and doesnt want to forget her? SUSPICIOUS IN HOUSTON DEAR SUSPICIOUS: I doubt it, but if you want to be sure, the person you should ask is your husband. After 50 years, the torch may be too heavy to carry or completely out.Husband who relives his past should focus on his present Ive read the headlines about all the jobless millennials living pale lives in their parents basements. Not seeing it! And not just because we dont have basements here. I get plenty of emails from under-35s buying their first homes. About 14 percent of them (more than 11 million) bought houses last year an uptick, according to real estate website Trulia. Before they even think about furnishings, many of these new homeowners scout a spot for their vegetable gardens. I know this from personal experience and the National Gardening Association: Millennial gardeners shot up from 8 million in 2008 to 13 million last year. The Flintstone kids, as the vitamin commercial says, are all grown up and contributing in big ways to sustainable living. Jay York, a 26-yearold Tampa newbie gardener, and Jonathan Winfrey, his 27-year-old organic heirloom seed supplier, are two excellent cases in point. Both embrace the technology theyve always known and the centuries-old, tried and true ways of living in synch with Mother Earth. Techs great but there are things from the past we shouldnt forget, says Jay, a digital marketing professional planting his first fall garden at his and his wifes home of one year in Seminole Heights. Jays a foodie who appreciates new flavors, but not when theyve been engineered. The heirloom varieties have been around a long time. Theyre not genetically modified theyve been modified through natural selection, he says. There are a lot of people, more than youd imagine, who want to know exactly Millennials treasure their heirlooms BY PENNY CARNATHANSPECIAL TO THE TIMESHEIRLOOMS | 8 Find it in theClassified


Wednesday, August 20, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B7 Tomatoes are our featured food this month and I have been making several dishes in the caf that feature tomatoes. One dish in particular that I think our guests have enjoyed is the roasted tomato focaccia. Focaccia is a at, oven-baked Italian bread that is very popular in Italian cafs and is usually served with olive oil and topped with a small amount of sea salt. It can actually be topped with whatever you think might be tasty. We topped our focaccia with roasted garlic and grape tomatoes. First, you have to roast your garlic with olive oil then remove it from the oil and puree it in a food processor until it is a smooth paste. Next, we cut grape and heirloom tomatoes with the oil left over from the roasted garlic. I love to nd ways to repurpose things like oils. We also added some julienned white onion to the tomatoes and roasted the onions and tomatoes together until they all had a blistered appearance. Once roasted, we removed them from the oven and let them cool on a sheet tray. After cooling, we strained them from the oil and saved the oil to use again when we made more focaccias the next day. Now its time to build the focaccias. First, we brushed the focaccia with the roasted garlic. I like to use a pastry brush to cover the focaccia evenly, but if you dont have a pastry brush, a cake spatula will work. Spread the garlic evenly over the entire top of the focaccia, sprinkle a small amount of mozzarella cheese over the garlic, then over the focaccia with the roasted tomatoes and onions. Finally, roast the focaccias in the oven for 12 minutes at 350 degrees until golden brown. Cut them into four pieces and gar nish them with some fresh parsley. I hope you enjoy this dish and share it with family and friends. Last week, I got the opportunity to prepare some food on our local ABC news station and if you would like to see the segment go to wtxl. com and put mayoless shrimp salad in the search engine. Cheers, Chef.Tomato focaccia 1 par baked focaccia bread 1 pint of grape or heirloom tomatoes sliced in half 10 cloves of fresh peeled garlic cup of shredded mozzarella cup of julienned white onion 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley 1 cup of olive oil Preparation 1. Combine olive oil and garlic in a small baking dish, making sure the garlic is cov ered with the oil and roast in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes. 2. Remove the dish carefully not to spill the hot oil on your hands. 3. Strain the oil and toss the tomatoes and onions with the oil and spread them onto a sheet tray evenly then place them in the oven and roast at 350 for 10 minutes or until the skins of the tomatoes are blistered. 4. Place the garlic in your food processor and puree until smooth. 5. Using a pastry brush spread the garlic over the top of the focaccia. 6. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the garlic followed by tomatoes and onions. 7. Place focaccia on a baking sheet pan and roast at 350 for 12 minutes. 8. Carefully remove from the oven and let rest for 2 minutes then slice into four pieces and garnish with fresh parsley.Tomato focaccia makes you think of Italian cafs Tim SpainCHEFS CORNER Tim Spain is System Executive Chef with Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and Morrison Healthcare Food Service.

It bloomed itself silly, and went to seed and of course, those seeds have been gathered and are being doled out to special folks who know how to grow stuff. That plant caused a ruckus, was under investigation and nally was identied by the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agri-Civic Center, and a lot of digging on the Internet. Glad I dont do yard work; leave it to the expert.Tropical Harbor EstatesBy ARLENE CLOUSTONLAKE PLACID Oh, the Dog Days of Summer, meaning the sultry days of August that we are experiencing.

He ordered seeds for his two raised beds from Organic Sanctuary,, an online seed shop launched in 2012 by Jonathan. He found it, of course, through Facebook. Jonathan has a degree in environmental studies and offers more than 40 homegrown or ganic seed varieties, bred outdoors and open pollinated at his parents 7-acre farm in Geneva, near Orlando. Hes also a distributor for Seeds of Change, an organic seed retailer. Get Jonathan talking about his heir loom plants, bred for Florida and naturally pestand disease-resistant, and youll want to skip straight to the harvest. One of my all-time favorites is Seminole pumpkins, he says. To cook them, I like to add some organic coconut oil around the inside and outside. Then I bake for maybe 112 hours at 350 degrees and when the skin starts to become nice and crispy brown its ready. I eat the skin and everything. Baking brings out the sugar in the pumpkin, so the inside is really creamy and sweet. You can cook the seeds, too. Theyre considered one of the worlds healthiest foods. Hungry yet? Jay ordered a packet of those, along with tiny lemon drop tomatoes, eggplants, bush beans, herbs and a host of other plants. He built two 4by 12-foot raised beds last spring and filled them with organic humus, organic soil-builder from David Whitwam Organics and organic fertilizer from Shells Feed Store, both in Tampa. Since summers a tough time for growing most veggies in Florida, Jay checked his enthusiasm and kept it simple with a few sauna-proof staples, like Everglades tomatoes. In fall, we get serious. But Jonathan advises starting small. Here are his suggestions for an easy-togrow veggie bed you can start from seed now. Seminole pumpkins: Said to be a staple of the Seminole Indians, these pumpkins average 4 to 5 pounds, Jonathan says. If you sprout the seeds in starter trays, as Jonathan does, expect pumpkins 70 to 90 days after transplanting outside. The rule of thumb for all seeds is plant them no deeper than the length of the seed. Keep them watered, he says. West Indian gherkin cucumbers: This crawling vine produces dozens of small cucumbers the size and shape of kiwis but with soft spikes on the skin. Theyre drought-tolerant and they tolerate the crazy heat and rain, he says, so they can be grown from spring to winter. Purple cowpea: These bush beans are hardy and prolific, and the shelled legumes are meaty, Jonathan says. Theyre an excellent companion plant because theyre nitrogen xers they create a habitat for benecial microbes that convert nonusable nitrogen into nitrogen that plants can use. Florida native beach sunflower: Attract pollinators to your garden with what Jonathan calls a lighthouse plant. Beach sunflower produces hundreds of flower heads and you have a very good chance that it will reseed, he says. It will draw the bees and other pollinators, and now youll have them on all your veggies.HEIRLOOMSFROM PAGE 6 ROOFING SPECIALIST 863-385-4690 FULLY LICENSED & INSUREDState Lic # RC 0066817 rf nttt 3068149 ri Store 712 US 27 South Lake Placid, FL 863-699-1000 3076421 ala dCloset
