SEBRING BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING Preparations are underway for the fth annual gathering of classic, vintage and custom cars, trucks and vans known collectively as Sebring Thunder. It is a three-day confab peppered with special events in and around the City on the Circle. Im going to go out on a limb here and predict we could have as many as 300 cars if the weather is right, said Mark Stewart, one of the event organizers. There will be 18 different vehicle categories ranging from modern classic, to special interest, to even a designation for ugliest in show. One contest that organizers hope will boost the car count is a 50th anniversary challenge to owners of Ford Mustangs with a counter-challenge to those who own Chevrolet Corvettes. Were hoping to get one model from each of the production years, Stewart said. Activities will commence Friday evening with a burnout contest, where drivers pull into a special area on Mango Street near the Sebring Fire Department and create smoke by spinning their tires to the delight of the crowd. We let them go through twice, said John Grif n, one of the event organizers.

The proposed changes approved by the Highlands County Commission on Tuesday require a special exception to keep more than three hogs; more than nine total sheep, goats and hogs, or more than 100 poultry. County residents in estate or low-density residential zones could have one purebred pot-bellied pig weighing 80 pounds or less as a pet. Lot sizes would have to be 10,000 square feet or more and the pig would have to live in the house, walk on a leash when outside and be spayed or neutered. The owner would need to verify pedigree and get a veterinarian certi cate each year. Also, the animals area would need to be clean and sanitized daily, to prevent odor. Odor would be considered a code violation, said Zoning Supervisor Linda Conrad. On lot sizes any smaller than that, or in any other zoning, the owner would need to apply for and get a special exception for the pet, amendments state.

Built in 1914 by early Sebring resident Thomas R. Whitehouse S r ., the house was designated as an histor ic home by the Sebring Historic Preservation Commission. I t has housed families and shops where it was built on the corner of Center Avenue and Wall Street, and is now the used bookstore for Sebring Friends of the Library. F r iends of the Library members, along with members of the Sebring Historical S ociety ofcials from the Sebring Public Library, Mayor J ohn S hoop, and descendents of Whitehouse gathered Monday morning to commemorate the occasion with a plaque on the building. H istor ical Society members provided refreshments and Library Friends members opened the store for brows ing though it is usually closed on M ondays Friends of the Library volunteer Jackie Koza said the 100-y ear -old wood frame house is unique in Florida in that it has not had any damage from termites, sunken pilings hurr icane or tornado winds, wind-driven rain or lightning strikes. Hugh Wallace said there were so many great memo ries from his grandfathers home H e only wished his grandfather had lived longer having passed away when he was 9 and before most of his other grandchildren were old enough to remem ber him. K o za didnt forget. She is credited with initiating the procedure to get the house designated as historic. Mary Myer, library director, said the designation helps pro mote the used book store which r aises funds to help the library and helps fur ther historic preservation, which is par t of the libr arys philosophy. Becky Rousch of the Histor ical Society gathered fellow members to arr ange r efreshments under a tent off Wall S tr eet, just around the corner from the front of the house. After the event, descendants, residents and dignitaries took a quick tour of the bookstore, which in addition to housing families, had also served as an appliance business, a gro cery store and a hotel in the upper r ooms .Whitehouse home commemorated Phil Attinger/News-SunDirect descendants of Thomas R.

Leto ya S hauntay Warren, 35, of Poinciana, has been charged with batter y and cr uelty towards a child. She also faces two counts of leaving the scene of an accident. She is in Highlands County Jail in lieu of $30,500 bond. Arrest reports state that between 8:358:41 / p .m. Saturday night, she went to the childs fathers home in the area of Crestmore Drive and Cloverland Street in Lake Placid. The man told High lands County Sher iffs deputies she went ther e to star t a ght. He attempted to leave by driving north of Crestmore D r ive in his tractor trailer, reports said. How e ver, she chased after him in a minivan, with the child in the car R eports said she rst drove up alongside the drivers side of the semi-tr ailer but braked when another car was coming toward her head-on. She then attempted to pass the semi on the r ight shoulder reports said, and str uck the fr ont passenger-side bumper of the tr uck. The impact pushed the minivan to the right where it hit a mailbox before stopping in thick sand, reports said. The man told deputies she got out of the miniv an with the infant and confr onted him. W arr en reportedly had the infant by the collar of the shir t and swung the baby at him, hitting him on the side of his face. She then swung the child at him again, but missed, reports said. She lost her balance and fell to the ground. She left on foot when a deputy arrived, re ports said, but walked back to the scene 10 minutes later .Mother charged with using child as a club to hit father WARREN BY BARR YY FOSTER NEws WS-SUn N CORREs S POn N DEn N T SEBRING Its almost autumn and that means that the arr ival of winter r esidents is just ar ound the cor ner It also means that local businesses will be hir ing again after the annual summer time slump.

Commissioners Jim Brooks, Ron Handley and Jack Richie voted in favor of making the mo v e now toward hiring a new attorney; Commission Chair man Greg Harris and C ommissioner Don Elwell voted against it. Richie, the swing vote, said when he asked if Macbeth would be willing to train another to take on the job, Macbeth told him no. Macbeth, however, said that what he ac tually said was that the time fr ame of one year was too short to acquaint a new attorney with county operations. He instead recommended the C ounty C ommission hire an assistant to him, with r elativ ely little experience out of law school. He could then train that per son without a specic deadline to ensur e the new attorney would know enough about the countys situation. I didnt say I would be unhelpful to some one coming in, Macbeth said. C ommissioner R on Handley, however, said thats not what Macbeth had told him. I specically asked if you would help train an in-house attorney and you said No, Handley said, adding that Macbeths body language was de ant. M acbeth said that hiring someone who needs him on call is the wrong person. He said the county should hire someone with ex perience, but added, M y contract doesnt support hiring some one (else) with seven to eight y ears of exper ience. B r ooks argued that the county should want 10 years of experience with as much as eight y ears r epre senting local government not the ve y ears r equested in the job description. He agreed that any attor ney should be able to stand alone If they cant, theyre not good as an attor ney and we dont want them, B rooks said. Handley added that he would hope any new county attorney could call Macbeth to ask about the countys legal history. Elwell and Harris argued Macbeth has support staff through his practice, which the county pays for through his fees. A new attorneys sal ary, priced between $81,682 to $133,142 per y ear, wouldnt cover that, Elwell said. Handley suspected the county would have to pay toward the high end of that pay range. Macbeth said counties one-third the size of H ighlands C ounty are paying the high end, so H andley r equested county staff set the lo w end of the range at $115,000$125,000. Assistant County Administrator Randal Vosburg said the adv er tisement could narrow that range. County Administrator June Fisher said the county can advertise that salary would be commensurate with experience. COUNTY F romROM pagePAGE A1 -rI'ii DI,vIi8rdwznl.

It is an advertisement for So and So vehi cle manufacturers latest model. B ut, the automobile pictur ed is a product of the rival manufacturer This and That. Its an out-of-date fam ily style van shown in poor light. The commercial tells y ou everything that is wrong with it. Or, at least what the So and So manufacturer wants you to be lieve is wrong with it. Youre told about infer ior paint, bad ignition switch es uncomfortable seats, and that it doesn t have four-wheel drive. Buy the So-So Nifty, the narrator says, n ishing with the phrase required by law So and So manufacturer ap proves this ad. B efor e you have a chance to think, Oh my, I didnt realize This and That made such an inferior van, a This and That commercial comes on. A So and So vehicle is shown in a ga rage raised on a lift. A mechanic wiping his oil stained hands is shaking his head at the camera. The So and So has to have its oil lter replaced on a regular basis, it has only two axles, and one spare tire. The carburetors are made in Ghana by hand. Make the safe choice, buy a This and That. A voice over says, Im the president of This and That, and I approve this mes sage. In the course of the one-hour pr o gram youre watching, these commer cials run four times each. W ould y ou buy either vehicle based on the information in those commer cials? Would you ever want to see either of these of commercials again? W e re willing to bet its highly unlike ly. Yet day after day, there they are, like the ancient water dr op tor ture. So, heres our question: Why in the world would we chose our political leaders based on the same kind of selfserving untruths, shown so often we can quote them verbatim? Is it really true that the American voter prefers to hear one candidate bash another, rather than hear what both have done for their constituents and fellow citizens or would like to do while in ofce? Is it really true that the American voter can be easily brainwashed sim ply by watching the same commercial week after w eek. Do too many voters think: I saw it on T.V., it must be true? Zombie voters do no one any good. Wake up. Check what candidates say and the context in which they say it. Better yet, ignore commercials alto gether. Listen to the debates, read up on the issues be thoughtful. D ecide for yourself.

They are a rare gift to our county. Kudos to you and your team, Judy.DAVE MC CC ARTHYChairman, Highlands County Democratic Party People asked me why I waited until my 40s to start a family. I dont know. I wasnt putting it off, but now that I think of it, I never worked for it before last year. The opportunity ar rived, and I let it happen. B out time. Ive been waiting all my life to be this tired and frustrated, and joyful, and confused and fullled. N ot until no w have I understood what its like being up all night with a baby who doesnt need a bottle, diaper change or burping, but cant lie down or sleep and is wailing like a banshee. Sometimes, he just wants to be held. Dont we all? My wife and I discov ered our babys favor ite places are our shoulders, especially my left shoulder wher e he s left a hint of milk drool. Often, Ive paced him around the house while he curls up there, con tent, slowly calming and then quiet, br eathing easy in sleep I t takes at least sev en tries to transfer him to the crib. Parenthood has gotten me used to certain new situations such as shopping with a stroller. Until you try, you never know how many grocer ies you can pack in the nooks pockets shelves and crannies. Recently, I did a run to the store with my boy in the seat and a weeks worth of staples stuffed in the nooks. A cashier called me SuperDad. Nah. Im Survivor Dad. You dont shop with the bab y ; you dont eat. Im now personally acquainted with terms only parents use: Angry Burrito Baby, fully-swaddled and crying. Stage-3 Cry Babys scream; makes airraid sirens sound like a wind chime. Poop Face We all make this face. Babies make it any time or place they want. Dirty Bomb A ful ly-used diaper; handle with care, and a hazmat suit. P laster of P oop Fallout from a Dirty Bomb. Pacing Walking around the house with baby in your arms to calm him down. Transfer From arms to crib or from one crib to another, it requires silence, shal low breathing and steady hands like a bomb tech. House Whisper If you cant speak this softly, your baby wont sleep, transfer or not. Diaper Bag An over-shoulder carryon holding diapers, wipes and fresh one sies; formula, bottles and water for both; cr eams, lotions and hand sanitizer, and snacks for when you miss lunch after feeding and changing y our y oung-un. Milk Neck Babys tendency to get for mula on his neck while feeding; also y our neck after burping him. M or e new terms will follow as the adventure continues.

On July 22, deputies responded to a call about a r obber y that had taken place at the corner of Memorial Drive and Cornell S tr eet. They made contact with the victim, who told them she was walking do wn the roadway and was approached by several suspects most notably one who she described as a young black male who began propositioning her for sex and drugs. The other suspects hung back and did not engage conversation, according to the victim. When she declined the offers for sex and drugs, she reported the victims jumped her and knocked her to the ground. The victim said she was repeated ly beaten while on the gr ound and her purse was ripped from her hands and stolen. The victim stated her purse contained per sonal items such as her $250 cell phone U pon a search of the area, the cell phone was found broken. Later that same night, a local man, Martavi ous Dewberry, received a visitor D arr is Ty son, who arrived minutes after the police questioned D ewberr y. Tyson would later use Dewberry as an excuse, telling police he had been hanging out with him all night and that he had no knowledge of breaking a cell phone. However, the victim positively identied Ty son as one of the men who attacked her T yson was charged with a second-degree felony of robbery without a weapon. at 863-385-6155, Ext.

There should be a wide array of vehicles that try for the $250 grand prize. Last year, even a racing lawnmower was brought in to compete. The event is broadcast live over Lite 105.7 FM with air personality Dave Onsted doing the play-byplay. Some cars come in just for that contest, Grif n said. Following the contest, live music res up on the Circle with the Shannon Reed Band. Saturday is show day as vehicles are parked on and around the Circle, extending down the spoke streets. Stewart said organizers are prepared to extend the distance that is closed off should they have a bumper crop of participants. Some of the clubs come together and the want to park beside each other. We try to accommodate that, Grif n said. During the day, the cars are open for inspection by the crowd as well as by judges, who determine the winners in each of the classi cations. Entertainment will be provided by the popular California Toe Jam Band, who will begin playing at 11 a.m. At noon on Saturday will be the Sebring Thunder. Thats when we ask all the cars to re up and rev up their engines all at the same time, Grif n said. They do make a lot of noise. The Circle also is packed with a wide variety of vendors offering food, drinks, specialty and commercial items. Sunday is another of the key events, as participants are invited out to the Sebring International Raceway to take some pace laps around the historic airport circuit. Just like the burnout contest, we have some people who sign up for the show just so they can ride on the Racetrack, Grif n said. Registration and additional information is available at THUNDER FROM PAGE A1other factors, we end up losing a few workers each year, she said. We didnt need quite as many in the primaries, but we will need some more for the general election for sure. Because Avon Park Lakes is one of the countys bigger precincts, Ogg said the workers should expect to remain busy throughout the day. Ogg said during the primary election they had needed workers in the Lake Placid area, but that problem now has been solved. It will be an all day affair, with workers coming in by 6 a.m. before the polls open and staying until after things are closed down at 7 p.m. to clean up and help pack ballots and other jobs. During the day, they will check the voters in, look at their drivers license or other ID, then give them their ballot, Ogg said. Workers stay at the precinct for the duration. Ogg said they even eat lunch on premises. Each precinct does it differently. Some have a pot luck, some order in, but there is food there throughout the day, which is a perk to being a poll worker, she said. Meanwhile, the absentee ballots will begin to go out at the end of this week. Our military absentees have to be out by Friday, she said.

Kim Morrow, vice president of operations at Signature Health Cares Urban South division, was ecstatic to be in Sebring and said the event really pulled the community together. Our sister facilities in Louisville, Ky., are doing the exact same thing right now, Morrow said. We are sharing an event simultaneously occurring 15 hours away. Its almost biblical. Events occurring in two places at once, and both so exciting. The ceremonial torch lighting was performed early in the event and the torch was carried by retirement home resident James Ferrare, with his wife Rose pushing him in his wheelchair. The torch was passed to fellow retiree Dale Barger. On the merits of the event, Barger said he liked the way it gave people an opportunity to come out and socialize. Kerri Luke, director of nursing at the Kenilworth Care & Rehabilitation, said the event was not only important to get people socializing outside of the retirement homes, but also for their fundamental health needs. Our residents are perfectly healthy, Luke said. But we want to make sure they have a quality of life. To Luke, the Senior Olympics did a pretty good job at making sure the retirees were enjoying themselves. at 863-385-6155, Ext. SENIOR FROM PAGE A1not the last word, however. The County Commission scheduled a nal public hearing on Oct. 21. The issue came to light this year after Rick Haberman, owner of 10-acre ChinaDoll Farms in Avon Park, received a cease and desist order about his pot-bellied pigs after raising them as houshold pets for 12 years. He called it unfair, not only because a special exception application would cost $975 outright and a total of $1,300 after advertisement, but also because he could have as many cattle as he wants without an exemption. Tuesdays discussion over pot-bellied pigs was minimal, but meeting attendees had concerns about limiting a farmers livestock. Conrad said that since the county enacted its zoning code in 1971, only four people applied for special exceptions. Commissioner Don Elwell and Commission Chairman Greg Harris suggested the $950 application fee might have been the reason for that. Commissioner Jim Brooks said the Planning & Zoning Commission discussed livestock allowances extensively during his tenure there. He believed a farmer should be exempt based on the size of the property. Likewise, county resident Bill Youngman, self-described Indiana farm boy, said a farmer who is only allowed nine animals cant make a living. A bunch of people sitting in an of ce dont know nearly as much as people who farm, he said. Mark J. Hill, Development Services director, said he had a case of a farmer with 50 hogs on 10 acres, but the majority of that land was wetland, which forced the hogs onto a small part of the land. Thats why we need to have (Planning & Zoning) review to see if the environment would restrict the animals, Hill said. Ray Royce, executive director of the Heartland Agricultural Coalition, thanked Hill for continuing to work on the issue, but was philosophically opposed to restrictions on Agriculture. Weve got to work out (standards for) the rural-urban interface, Royce said.

Robert Randy Allen, 25, of Sebring was taken to Highlands Regional Medical Center and then transported to Tampa General Hospital for his injuries.

This was a difcult course because of the hill, Tauchen said. I am proud of the whole team and how well we did in spite of the dif culty. The Sebr ing boys were at full strength and had an impressive showing, taking 7th o v erall out of 32 teams, with their 205 points just ahead of Gulf Coasts 206. Eric Foster was the Streaks rst to cross the line, taking 7th in 17:10, with Damian Foster next across in 22nd place with a time of 17:46. Malcolm Hold man was next, in 26th, with W esley Koning and Chandler Gowan rounding out the scor ing nishes by taking 59th and 94th, r espectiv ely, out of 229 runners. I m really pleased with the boys progress at this point, bo ys head coach M atthew Schult said. M ost of them are faster at this time than they were at the same point in the season last year. This sets us up for a great season. Im really excited. The race went pret ty well, Eric Foster said. I made a couple of race errors but o v erall happy with my time for the course. Im looking forward to next weekend at North Port. RUN FROM PAGE A A 10 Courtesy photoFreshman runner Sophia Tauchen was the second Lady Streak to cross the nish line at Saturdays meet in Lehigh educator and advocate for people with disabilities S he graduated from the University of South Florida and Southeastern Uni versity in 2005 with a bachelor s degree in public relations and journalism. Stawski currently works as an adaptive sports coach at the N ew Tampa Family YMCA. S he gr aduated from Winter Park High School in Florida. Stawski recently came to Sebring to visit her fr iend S ara Canali. Canali introduced her to her friends at Special STARS. STARS FROM PAGE A A 10who isnt as fast or as creative outside of the pocket as Grifn. We will cater to his strengths, Gruden promised. Where problems of ten surface is when backups become star ters for a lengthy pe riod of time. For one game or par ticularly just a part of it opponents dont have a true r ead on what the N o. 2 QB is comfortable doing. Theyre too busy game-planning for the R edskins RG3, the Car dinals Palmer and, ev en though he is a car eer backup, the Rams S haun H ill. That, in part, can explain why a Stanton or a D avis has some immediate success. The Giants expected a strict pocket passer who sometimes forces throws in the station ary Palmer. They got a guy with some maneuverability in Stanton, whose passing stats w ere moderate, but who didnt make mistakes. I ts different when youre not getting all those reps, said Stanton, who had not play ed since 2010 and has appeared in 13 games in eight seasons. You have to be mentally tuned in to every little thing. Sometimes youre almost eavesdropping on (coach B r uce Arians) and what hes saying to Carson and whats going on with the O-line. His opportunities gure to disappear once P almer is r eady; the Cardinals went 10-6 behind him last year. C oincidentally Stantons mentor as a backup QB is none other than Hill, who is in his ninth season in the r ole. Stanton and Hill were together for two seasons with the Lions, and Hill showed the youngster the reserve ropes. As soon as I found out I was playing, I texted him, Stanton said of Hill, who is bat tling a thigh injury that sidelined him for S unday s victory at Tampa Bay. Hes somebody that I v e learned from how to prepare yourself throughout the course of the week as a backup. Theres an art to it. N o w it is Davis who is getting the benet of Hills wisdom as a teammate And D avis, whod never thrown an NFL pass befor e this year, must be a fast learner. He went 22 for 29 for 235 yards rststringer Bradford would take such numbers every week with no inter ceptions and plenty of poise down the stretch. Davis guided a 71-yard drive to the winning eld goal one w eek after St. Louis was routed at home by Minnesota. I felt a peace out there, said Davis, who was undrafted out of Southern Mississippi in 2012. I felt at home, and it had a lot to do with the guys I was around and how well we played. Next week and be yond come bigger challenges for Davis and S tanton, should they even play, and for Cousins, who certainly will be behind center. Opponents will scheme for them, aided by regular-season video they didnt previously have. The surprise ele ment will be gone. B ut S tanton also can recall the case of jour neyman QB Josh McCown, who turned a successful stint in Chicago last year into a star ting job and big contract with the Bucs. The younger guys, meanwhile, also can re member someone who came into the league destined for a bench role. A guy named Tom Brady.

DEAR PHARMACISTSuzy CohenMother Nature has provided us with a beautiful medicine cabinet. In it, we nd foods, herbal extracts and vitamins or minerals that reduce pain and promote health. Consider any of the following items in my list for what ails you. Make sure your doctor approves of you eating or taking something new. So what ails you?High blood pressureCelery is delicious to dip in hummus, but its a great way to reduce your craving for salt. That lowers blood pressure. Also, the celery seeds contain compounds like apigenin and isoquerticin, which cause your blood vessels to expand, and that lowers blood pressure. Celery is a mild, natural diuretic. It decreases the uric acid your body makes so it could help with gout, too.Memory lossMore classically used for depression and fatigue, Panax ginseng is great for memory and focus concerns. Approved abroad, ginseng is used standardly as a tonic for declining concentration. It protects a portion of the brain known as the hippocampus from the effects of high stress hormones like cortisol. For that reason it helps with physical stamina and endurance.Menstrual pain and bloatingFennel, which smells like licorice, is the herb to consider here. It helps relax your gastrointestinal tract and reduce bloating and gas, even in kids. Fennel was shown in studies to help reduce menstrual problems such as cramps too. You can buy commercially prepared extracts, or just take the seeds and boil about a half-teaspoon of crushed seeds and steep in hot water for 20 minutes; strain, sweeten and sip a cup. Natural cures for what ails you BY KIM LEATHERMAN NEWS-JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT Today is National School Backpack Awareness Day. This annual event is always observed the third Wednesday in September. The purpose is to bring awareness to the health ramications of students who use a backpack incorrectly. The American Occupational Therapy Association implemented this program to reduce injuries caused by backpack misuse and overloading. Lets face it, backpacks are practical. They hold a ton of school supplies and textbooks and keep youngsters organized with their multiple compartments. They come in a myriad of colors and patterns, favorite TV characters and different materials. Young students tend to gravitate to what they deem as cool rather than practical. It is estimated that 79 million students of all ages use backpacks throughout their school day. However, an overloaded backpack can be a pain in the well, back. Dr. Anavatti Raghuveera of Caladium Pediatrics in Lake Placid agrees with the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for backpack weight. A child should not carry more than 10 to 15 percent of his body weight in the backpack, said Dr. Ragu, as his patients call him. Under no circumstances should a student ever carry over 20 percent.ShutterstockA childs backpack should carry no more than 10 percent of his or her body weight.A pain in the back ... packIs your kids backpack too heavy?In 1742, Nicholas Andry, a French physician, wrote his best know book, Orthopaedia, The Art of Preventing and Correcting Deformities in Children. An illustration from the book showing a bent tree tied to a stake and then growing straight became the symbol of the orthopaedics. Splinting, exercise and other devices were used to treat clubfeet, scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and other deformities in children with mixed results. Fractures in any age group resulted in lifelong deformity, amputation and sometimes death. Even without malpractice lawyers, this made most physicians wary of treating such a hopeless group. A century later, things began to improve. Antonius Mathysen introduced plaster of Paris for stabilizing fractures. This worked so well that even when I was a resident, this was the treatment for the majority of fractures. John Hunter wrote about the healing of tendons, Percival Potts about spinal deformity and ankle fractures.

We dont know what to do, stammered Verna with a sob. Our doctor is in Ohio and we have a doctor here, as well as several specialists. We trust them all but were not sure about next stepshealthcare is getting too complicated. Verna symbolizes the millions of Americans, including me, who are navigating the healthcare system of our county. It is complex, intricate, at times dysfunctional and changing rapidly. Lets review together just a few of the daunting changes and trends in healthcare that we see nationally. With a current shortage of 60,000 medical doctors in the United States, we will experience more treatment carried out by non-MDs. Also there will be a renewed focus on prevention of disease and wellness programs.

No matter which season we are in, our goal is to engage each member of our team in an effort to deliver high quality health car e to the community we serve. There are several key steps we have taken over the past few months to fur ther suppor t this action.Employee Satisfaction Survey We conducted a detailed and comprehensive survey to measure the temper atur e of our workforce. Eighty percent of those working at Highlands Regional Medical Center provided the leadership team with v aluable feedback and insight. Many things are going well within our organization, but we also clearly received in formation that assisted us in identifying ar eas of weakness and oppor tunity for improvement. O ur administr ation team has been meeting with the various departments within the hospital and our employed physician gr oup Highlands Medical Group, to fur ther discuss the overall results of the survey.The Joint Commission SurveyIn mid-August a three-day accreditation survey was conducted. Such a survey typically occurs once every thr ee y ears. The hard work of all on our team paid off with a very solid performance. Leaders in Nursing, Quality and F acilities/E ngineer ing along with a full commitment thr oughout the or ganization led to such a str ong sur v ey result. I am thankful that our team of pr ofessionals focuses on do ing the right thing at all times .Transfer Call CenterHighlands Regional Medical Center is one of 12 Community Health Systems (CHS) afliated hospitals participating in this initiative. When it makes sense for the clinical care of the pa tient, our sister facilities attempt to transfer patients within our networ k of hospitals The network stretches north to Heart of Flor ida Medical Center in H aines City and w est to Bayfront-St. Petersburg. The goal is continuity of care and proper placement of the patient to insur e the highest quality .Physician Satisfaction SurveyLike we did with our workforce earlier this summer, Highlands Regional Medical Center is no w conducting a satisfaction sur vey of the pr o viders on our medical staff. Their feedback will assist us in lear ning what we are doing right, and more impor tantly the information gleaned will let us kno w the actions to be taken in order to constantly improve. As the CEO of Highlands Regional Medical Center, my focus remains on safety, quality and customer ser vice The health care system can be complicated at times, but in the end it boils down to people taking care of people. We must not lose sight of this fact. The points I articu lated above are provided as examples to you of what we ar e doing to make our hospital a provider of care that you can rely upon. On behalf of our entire team, thank you for y our suppor t of our or ganization.

DEAR FROM PAGE B1For example, if a student weighs 100 pounds, he or she could be expected to carry 10 pounds. The back gear should be packed with the weight distributed evenly, also. According to the AOTA, more than half of stu dents carry more than the optimal 10 per cent. When a backpack is too heavy or used incorr ectly w e can see back, shoulder and neck muscles strained, said D r Ragu. We have to break the cycle or longterm problems could develop if we dont intervene. The AAP also cites postur e problems. A backpack is too heavy if the child leans to one side or forward, compensating to maintain balance. Students should be instr ucted to lift a backpack up by bending at the knees instead of bending from the waist. The AAP recommend packing the heaviest books into the satch el rst so that the bulk of the w eight is closest to the body. Other suggestions are instructing the student to use both ar m str aps and a waist strap if it is available. Arm straps should be wide and padded. U se lockers frequently throughout the day if they ar e fur nished. Use rolling backpacks if allowed by the child s school. The pack should extend from two inches below the shoulder blades to the natural waist. Dr. Ragu recom mends parents use the AAP w ebsite for guidelines on the pur chase and w ear of backpacks The website is www. PACKS FROM PAGE B1Jones studied and wrote extensively about the treatment of fr actur es. The rst operation on a fracture was in 1892. The use of ether in 1895 and W illiam Roentgens development of the x-ray machine in 1900 made fractures more treatable. In 1936, Dr. Leslie Rush did the rst bone pinning in the Unit ed States. He bought steel and made pin samples fr om each batch. If they worked, then he had pins made from the rest of the batch. With improved hardware, antibiotics and anesthesia, modern orthopaedics was born. The Amer ican A cademy of Or thopaedic Surgeons was founded in 1933 to freely share all kno wledge of bone and joint conditions. Many people think that orthopedists are big muscular jocks. The women or thopedists answ er to that is You can either use br ute for ce or you can do it right. A perfect example of this, Ruth Jackson, the rst female orthopedic surgeon, was only 5-foot-2. S he wanted to be a general surgeon but could not nd a residency. Arthur Steindler, one of the pioneers of modern orthopaedics, offered to let her work with him while she looked for a residency. She went on to become the chief of orthopedic surgery at Parkland Hospital and joined the staff at Baylor University be fore opening a private clinic in D allas Much like your handyman, we x things that go wrong in the musculoskeletal system (muscles, bones and nerves). Our sur gical toolboxes contain screwdrivers, saws, drills and many other recognizable tools. Our tools cost more and have to withstand the heat needed to make them sterile. Broken bones, cut tendons and nerves can be repaired allowing the patient to return to normal function. M any things do not r equire surgery. For example, about 60 percent of rotator cuff problems in the shoulder can be taken care of by medicine, injections and therapy.

Note that in 1950, the average life expectancy was 68.2 years. By 2050, the av er age life expectancy will be 83.9. Further exploring trends in healthcare, we see payers will inuence their care more than any time in history as data be comes available publically regarding hospitals, providers and new equipment. Chr onic disease will continue to dr ive costs up at an alar ming r ate. Currently three out of every four dollars is spent on chronic diseases and accounts for 75 per cent of our $2.8 trillion health care bill in the United States. Also, expect to see more mega health systems. It is anticipated that 20 percent of all hospitals (currently about 600 hospitals in the United States) will seek to merge in the next ve years. And, yes, we will see a dramat ic increase in Americans par ticipating in medical tourism, seeking cheaper solutions outside of the country. Lake P lacid is not insulated fr om these trends. Locally w e ar e taking steps to meet the challenges through a multitude of ways which include telemedicine, wellness programs and treatment by additional non MDs midlevel. So lets talk. Its my hope through this column we can explore national healthcare trends and r eview ho w they affect us in Lake Placid.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 DEAR ABBY: I am five months pregnant with my second child and engaged to a wonderful man, Tony. We get along well with my ex-husband with whom I share custody of my first child. But problems may arise when the baby is born. I had a night of sex with a friend who is of a different race. Tony knows about it and the possibility that the baby will be mixed. He feels strongly that he will help me raise the child as his own. My family knows nothing about this, nor does my ex. How should I handle the possible backlash and confusion if this child is, indeed, the product of my one-night stand? SCARED IN THE SOUTH DEAR SCARED: Say nothing prematurely. If your baby turns out to be mixed race, deal with it matter-of-factly. While there may be confusion, all you have to do is say that you and Tony plan to raise this child together in a loving family. If they wish to participate, they are welcome. If not, make it clear that you will do it without their help. Your baby will not be alone. According to the Census Bureau, the population of mixed-race Americans grew 32 percent from 2000 to 2010. DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend, Donna, and I have been together for eight years. We have a great relationship, respect each other and never argue. She has a low-paying job, and I dont ask much of her in regard to rent or other bills, but she does buy a few groceries now and then. I have always told Donna that if she ever needs money, all she has to do is ask me and Ill help with what I can. My dilemma is that she borrowed about $50 in change I had been saving in a coffee can and didnt tell me. When I asked her about it, she said shed put it back. That was more than a month ago. Am I being petty? Id hate for this to become an issue between us. Should I say something again, or just wait to see what Donna does? SHORTCHANGED GUY DEAR SHORTCHANGED: That Donna would take the money, not tell you, and not pay it back or start feeding the kitty is disappointing. Because it bothers you to the point of writing to me, tell her whats on your mind. If you dont, it will fester until there is an eruption. Better to air this now, before it grows out of proportion. DEAR ABBY: Upon going into a public womens restroom where the doors of the stalls are closed, what is the polite way to check if someone is in a stall? Should I try to open the door or look under to see if there are feet? GOTTA GO IN CALIFORNIA DEAR GOTTA: The time-honored, foolproof method is to check if there are feet. Its less disruptive than pushing on the door, which might startle an occupant.Mixed-race baby would be a surprise but not an outcast DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil lips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

NEW YORK (AP) Apple had more than 4 million advance orders of its new iPhones in the rst 24 hours, exceeding its initial supply, the company said Monday. The company said the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be delivered to customers starting Friday and throughout September, but many wont be delivered until October. Phones will still be available Friday on a walk-in basis at Apple retail stores and from var ious wireless carriers and authorized Apple resellers. Apples website had intermittent outages last Friday because of heavy trafc as orders began online. The company said the 4 million orders set a new 24-hour record. It didnt immediately say what the old record was. Last year, Apple sold 9 million phones in the rst three days they were on sale. The new phones were announced last week and have larger screens, faster perfor mance and a wireless chip for making credit card payments at retail stores by holding the phone near the payment terminal. The phones start at $199 with a two-year service contact. The phones will initially be available in the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the U.K. Availability will expand to more than 20 additional countries a week later. A free update to Apples iOS software for phones will be available to existing users on Wednesday. The new phones will come with that update, iOS 8.

Locally, Gulf Coast operates Lake Placid Health and Rehabilitation Center and has recently purchased Southern Lifestyles Senior Living Center. Angela Shaffer, Director of Marketing Initiatives and Sales Strategy, was joined by Kim Warnecke, Director of Organization and Talent Effectiveness, to tell the audience that by 2030, some 57 percent of Florida residents will be 65 years or older. That gure will mean the United States as a whole will need 3.5 million more professional staff to meet the needs of the aging population. The mission of Gulf Coast Health Care is to be the best long-term care organization in the country. In order to meet that mission statement, the company promotes four pillars of excellence, focusing on people, quality, service and nances. A display table at the luncheon provided information from Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care. That organization has provided services to Central Florida for 30 years. The Chamber of Commerce member ship luncheons are held on the second Wednesday of each month, providing members a place to network and learn about local services and events. The luncheons will continue to be held at the Camp and Conference Center throughout the fall and winter months.Senior health care sets topic for Chamber luncheon By NORMA RIZERNEWS-JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT PHOTO BY NORMA RIZER/NEWS-JOURNALAngela Shaer, Director of Marketing Initiatives and Sales Strategy, was joined by Kim Warnecke, Director of Organization and Talent Eectiveness, to explain senior health care.LaCae Lightsey, a second grade teacher at Lake Placid Elementary School, has been named Teacher of the Month for September.

On Sept. 10, The Highway Park Neighborhood Council was joined by businessmen and property owners in a conference call with Highlands County Engineer Ramon Gavarette and Joey Bareld of the County Road & Bridge Department to discuss plans to improve a section of the commercial district on Crestmore Drive in the Highway Park Community. This is one of several talks held with Highlands County Engineering Department, Florida Department of Transportation, Keep Highway Park Beautiful, and the Highway Park Neighborhood Council as plans are made to help beautify this Lake Placid community.

For more information, call Tiffany Green at 863-840-2995.Placid Lakes Party LineBY SUSIE LEELAKE PLACID The American Legion Post 25 did an outstanding job remembering 9-11 last week, but the outstanding remembrance was a hand-crocheted ag made by Sharon Wood with nine stars and bold stripes measuring roughly 3-by-6-foot. It is a true work of art by the Betsy Ross of the 21st century, and certainly worthy of preserving with a proper frame and nameplate. Whoever wins that should leave it right there at the Legion, and hung at the Legion Hall so that well never forget. Thank you, Sharon, for being so very thoughtful. Placid Lakes salutes you! October is the month for polkas, sausage and festivals and the Dalton Gang will have its annual Sausage Festival, complete with music, magic and merriment at the town hall on Oct. 25.

We started right here in the town hall a little over three years ago, and had our rst dance at the Eastside Fellowship Hall in September of 2011. We became partners with the Lake Placid Elks in July 2013 with dances year-round. We are glad to see Lorenza Mass doing well with her new knee. This seems to be the operation of choice this year, and all have been successful. Our Sharon Vachon had both of them done at separate times, of course but shes out on the dance oor, swinging away. And Sally Kinsey just had one done. Good work, girls. How come we never hear about guys with new knees? Oh, well. The sand hill cranes own Placid Lakes Boulevard, and be aware of them, folks they cross the road when they feel like crossin!Tropical Harbor EstatesBY ARLENE CLOUSTONLAKE PLACID Does September mean lots of rain? Maybe it doesnt usually, but it sure has this year. Weve sure had more than our share, but since it rains in the afternoon it does not interfere with our coffee meetings or our exercise classes in the pool. Monday Morning BYOC meeting was held on Peggy Sue Teagues carport with Peggy sue emceeing. Ann Rissmiller treated everyone with Honey Buns for her birthday, which went good with the coffee. Peggy Sue read the names of the people having birthdays this week and only Ann and John Reece were present so we sang Happy Birthday to them. We also sang Happy Anniversary to Bob and Jean Noyes on their 64th wedding anniversary. Carol Noel gave her sunshine report which was not sunny: Lorraine Fiene is moving to Illinois on the 19th, Barbara Kelleher is in the Lake Placid Health Care Center and Lois Prator is in intensive care in the hospital. Sign the sheets and pray for your friends. So many people have picked September to go on vacation and people are coming back, too. Mary Ann Layne told about her vacation. This past August she took a trip to Pennsylvania to visit her sister, Betty and Ellwood Cosgrove, winter residents of this park, for about two weeks. While she was there, their two brothers and their wives also visited them and they had one joyous family reunion, especially since Mary Ann had not seen her brothers for 15 years. They all went to see the Lumber Museum and the Elk Museum. The following week, they went to Lancaster, Pa., to see the play, Moses, which they all enjoyed. Mary Ann said the play gave her background for the following Sunday morning sermons on Moses at her church. Brenda Knoche announced that we will not have Nu Hope sewing again until Oct. 1. With all the construction in and around the clubhouse, it has not interfered with our noodle exercises in the pool three times a week. Exercises take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 10. We are there working our bodies, arms and legs, so come join us. Dorothy Morra has joined the teaching staff. Ladies coffee was held at the home of Donna Kelbride Tuesday morning and Donna led the meeting. It was nice to see Win Thayer at the meeting.

Jim and Rosie were given a trip on Aug. 9 to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary by their children from Phoenix, Ariz., and Columbus, Ohio. They all met in Washington, D.C., where the children had rented a lovely three-story home that was over 100 years old. It was located less than two blocks from the Supreme Court Building, so they had a week of walking to see all the sights of interests. A few of the highlights of their trip, Jim said, was the Lincoln Memorial, and it was a humbling experience. Jim said their nineyear-old grandson liked the National Air and Space Museum, the movie, Hubble, which you can see there, is amazing which is about the stars and outer space. They also enjoyed the War Memorials such as WWII, Korea and Iwo Jima, Arlington National Cemetery and the changing of the guard is impressive. We walked and looked until our feet and eyes were tired. We didnt cover 50 percent of what there is to see. Another highlight was eating in the Congressional Dining room. We had to try their famous bean soup. It was very, very good. Every American should make at least one trip to our countrys capital. What a wonderful anniversary gift from our family. (I certainly will agree with you, it was a great gift). Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
