For the past ve years, six reghters serving on rotating shifts have been working out of the Value Place Hotel off of State Road 50 in Clermont. Lake County Sheriff Gary Borders recently offered to allow the re de partment to build a modular building at the sheriffs South Lake Sub station on State Road 50, about a quarter of a mile from the hotel, to house the reghters. The funds to construct the building will come from re impact fees. However, Lake County commis sioners unanimously agreed last week to postpone any decision for 90 days while they work with Cler mont ofcials to determine future re needs. The county is exploring a part nership with the city, according to County Manager David Heath. Clermont City Manager Darren Gray said after last Tuesdays meeting that there are plans to put a re station east of where station 90 is located. Gray said the city and county are exploring a joint-use re station that can serve both county and city needs. You are not building two sepa rate buildings and saving the tax payers money, he said. Commissioner Sean Parks said he still believed it is important to relocate the reghters to the modular building. We have been talking about this for a long time, he said.

Area Briefs What South Lake residents are saying about ...VETERANS DAYWho do you honor on Veterans Day?The only one I know of in recent years is my cous in who was in the Navy. He served in Italy. I have a couple of uncles who have served too, but they are all still around. Theres no one in remembrance because theyre all still around, but I do believe this day is one that should mean a time to be with your family. ANTHONY CATINO GAINESVILLE My grandfather, who passed away a couple of years ago. He was a veter an. He lived in New York and I dont know exact ly what he did or where he served because I hardly ever saw him, but I know he served. HEATHER HILLIARD GAINESVILLE Jack Ramsey, a neigh bor we had when we lived in Massachusetts. Hes very sick now, but he is a veteran of the Korean War and he liked to tell stories about the relationships he had with the people he served with. I remem ber he was a police ofcer for many years, but I also remember he used to vol unteer a lot when needed around town. He visited soldiers homes and he always visited his friends in Korea. Hed talk a lot about the areas where he served between North and South Korea, he talk ed about how cold it was and he told us about the people. He was very civic and history minded. We liked his stories and he gave us a part of himself that we could relate the day to, rather than seeing it as just another holiday on paper. MARLY CHEVRETTE CLERMONT To be honest, I person ally dont have anyone in my close knit family who is a veteran, but I do re spect all veterans on Veter ans Day because they have served for us all.

More information about circulation on Page A4 Staff ReportLake County teach ers have approved a new contract for 2013-14, which includes a salary increase. If the contract is passed by the Lake County School Board, a new teachers salary would begin at $37,150 and max out at $56,550 with more than 25 years of experience, ac cording to a press release from the Lake County Ed ucation Association. The salary increas es would be implement ed for the rst time in three years, according to the association. The new contract recovers the -09 step increase and added an additional step for 2012-13, the as sociation reported. Over 91 percent of our teachers approved this contract, which is the rst raise teachers have re ceived in three years said Stuart Klatte, president of LCEA and chief negotiator in a statement.I have to complement the school board for understanding the hard work and dedication of our teachers. The teachers believed it was a fair contract, said Toni Beckett, a Career Tech Ed teacher at Lake Minneola High School, in a statement. I thank the school board, legislature and bargaining team for their collaboration on behalf of teachers, she said. Other contract provisions include incentive payments based on student growth, protec tion of planning time and high school teachers po tential for teaching an additional class, the association reported. In January, bargaining for next years con tract will begin in order to be completed before the 2014-15 school budget is approved.TAVARESLake County teachers ratify contracthire a private attorney. Ofcials said Shipman is being held under sui cide watch at the jail and will be transferred to Lake County authorities. He was arrested on Wednesday afternoon by mem bers of the Ocala Police Departments Special De ployment Unit. They received a tip on his whereabouts and went to the Fore Ranch area off Southwest State Road 200 in Ocala, where he was arrested with out incident at about 4:55 / p.m. When OPD detectives Dan C. Clark and Jeff Hurst arrested Shipman, he had a shirt wrapped around his left hand, ac cording to Clarks report. In both hands, Shipman had a jacket, a Bible and a cross made out of Pal metto leaves. He dropped the items, lay on the ground and put his arms out. Once handcuffed, Shipman complained of a medical condition, and detectives called medical personnel, who took him to West Marion Community Hospital. After being treated there, he was taken to OPD for ques tioning by Lake County sheriffs detectives Danny Morales and Clay Watkins. After that, Shipman, who has a criminal histo ry, was transported to the jail. Delaney was found dead at her home on Monday. Investigators would not say how she was killed, but family members said she was beaten to death with a baseball bat and that the couples 3-year-old daughter witnessed the attack. Afterward, the girl made her way out of the house and around the block to her grandmothers house a quarter of a mile away. Her grandmother, Kristi Delaneys mother, rushed to the house and found the body. According to documents released by the Lake County Sheriffs Ofce Tuesday evening, a witness told investigators that Shipman called her about 1 / p.m. Monday and asked to be picked up in Groveland. The woman, who was not identied in the documents, said Shipmans hand was bandaged and bleeding. She took him to Oca la and dropped him off. Family members say Shipman and Delaney had been in a relationship for years. When Delaney became pregnant with their daughter, the couple moved in for a time with her parents. But the family said theirs was a troubled re lationship marked by ar guments and physical altercations. According to court records, Delaney sought and received domes tic violence injunctions against Shipman in February 2012 and again in July of that year. State records show Shipman has served time in prison for various of fenses, including grand theft of a rearm and armed burglary. He was released Nov. 1, 2008. Those same records indi cate he is on drug offend er probation that ends Dec. 5, 2016 for posses sion of cocaine. MURDER FROM PAGE A1

It is getting the reghters back into a decent environment. There is no need to purchase another site. There have been van dalism and thefts of property, and re ofcials said they lack the resources to secure equipment at the hotel. One rst responders personal vehicle was burglarized. The Lake County Sheriffs Ofce has received 42 calls to the hotel since 2011, according to a call list ob tained from the department. Commissioner Jimmy Conner questioned the location for the re station at the sheriff substation. You could make the argument we are do ing the residents a dis service by moving away from the call areas and increasing response times, because we are not located properly, he said. In response, Parks said, It is on State Road 50. That is where most of the calls are going to be. It just makes sense to lo cate it there because of its accessibility. Commissioner Welton Cadwell then weighed in, stating, We can go and spend the money, but I dont think it would keep the city from building one (a re station) across the street. Even so, Lakes Fire Chief John Jolliff said he would prefer the sta tion be farther east, but the top priority is to get the reghters out of the hotel. We are one more day closer to getting them out of the hotel, he said. It comes down to which alternative can be done the fastest. Kyle Rogg, president and chief executive ofcer of Value Place Hotels, said in a statement Tuesday that hotel security and safety are top priorities. Affordable, extended-stay lodging that is clean and safe is a top priority for Value Place, he said, noting the hotel has security cameras in the interi or of the building. We co operate with local authorities and proactively encourage law enforcement to drive through the parking lots and have a pres ence. The relocation project is expected to cost $416,000, county docu ments show. In unrelated action Tuesday, commissioners approved building a new re station on U.S. Highway 42 in Altoona. The current building we occupy was never designed to be a re station, said Lake County Assistant Fire Chief Jack Fillman of the current station located on State Road 19. It was never designat ed to house people and hold apparatus. We are fortunate the school board allowed us to use it. We need a better lo cation and a newer station. That station is ex pected to cost at least $850,000. HOTEL FROM PAGE A1 The current building we occupy was never designed to be a fire station.

A4 SOUTH LAKE PRESS Wednesday, November 13, 2013People should do their own workI grew up on a 365-acre farm, which bor dered the Wisconsin River for 1 1/2 miles. My dad, born in 1895, was from strong English family stock arriving here in the 1700s. As part of the 200 tillable acres, we had a 5-acre plot of Dekalb hybrid corn near the farm buildings, which was dads pride and joy to show visitors. I and my brother Gene had a special job to hoe this corn as a follow-up to regular tractor cultivation. We split the rows and while he spent much of his time playing (throwing clods of dirt, etc.), I laboriously hoed until my half was done and then headed for the river with my fishing rod, but dad made sure I didnt get there. I was to help Gene hoe until his half was also done. How many readers have had similar experiences early in life? Those who did, in all probability, grew to abhor the policies of labor unions and the tenants of the liberal/progressive politicians. We constantly hear the Democratic Party (present day version) harping, via their Pravda media, that we (conservative Republicans, tea party types) must compromise with them. I see what they preach every time I read their views on this opinion page. The letter from William Campbell, Nov. 1, encapsulates their political bible into one paragraph. How could anyone, with a sense of what is right for this country ever compromise with such socialistic nonsense? We conservatives believe that we should teach a person how to fish, instead of giving him or her the fish we caught. Look what has happened in the last few short years with the number of people on food stamps, on disability, on unemployment pay, the number of manufacturing jobs driven out of our country by government taxation, regulation and unions, the number on government payrolls (unionized and near impossible to ter minate), and now free health care along with the evergrowing, near $17 trillion debt left for our grandchildren. Some very smart people have deduced that Obamas purpose is to bring our country to its financial knees before resurrecting it as another Soviet socialist-style nation. Who doubts that this isnt well on the way to happening? If the typical voter in the next congressional election votes to continue our giveaway form of government, well once again have both legislative bodies controlled by Democrats. Two things will then happen, Obama can stay in office for unlimited terms (Franklin Roosevelt repeat), and a stacked Supreme Court will sanction it.CLINTON GEORGE FISH | TavaresPolitical cartoon disparages the GOPThe political cartoon signed by Roger, 2013 Pittsburgh Post Gazette that ran in the Daily Commercial, Sept. 29 on the Voices page is offending to Christian Catholics and the Republican Party. The cartoon featured two GOP elephants making a GOP Enemies List: 1; Obama. 2. Gays; 3. Abortionists; 4. Women; 5. Blacks; 6. Latinos; 7. The Poor. The GOP elephant was reading a newspaper say ing: Francis Seeks more Inclusion, with the Popes picture. The comment made by the GOP elephant reading the paper, Leave room for the Pope. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope, March 14. He chose the name of Francis. St. Francis of Assisi, who astounded and inspired the church by taking the gospel (Greek for good news) literally by actually following what Jesus said and did. The political cartoonist Roger thought Pope Francis should be included in the GOP Enemies List. First on the list: Obama. I was taught the United States has several political parties. Not all Americans agree with him and that does not make them un-American. Second on the list: Gays. I am not aware the Republicans have gay bashing in their platform. Third: Abortionists. Many Democrats and Republicans do not like abortion. They believe it is killing a human life. Fourth: Women. Women have the right to vote. Citizen by birth or naturalized and 18 years of age in the United States. It has not been easy for women to acquire this privilege. President Woodrow Wilson (Democrat) wanted the suffragettes to be admitted to an insane asylum. Women have the ballot box to right their grievances. No. 5. Blacks. There is nothing in the GOP platform about Republicans hating blacks. President Abraham Lincoln (Republican) proclaimed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 (freed the slaves). Jim Crow laws were passed and enforced in the southern parts of the U.S. by Democrats. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 became the law because of the Republican vote. (Check voting records). No. 6. Latinos. Republicans (and Democrats) only want the illegal immigration laws enforced. There are Latinos in the House and Senate. No. 7. The Poor. The poor have never been on any enemies list. The GOP is in favor of cur rent government programs that help the poor. They just want to enforce the law to keep from having the noneligible using government benefits. I was surprised to see this political cartoon in the Daily Commercial. The reporting has been fair and objective presenting both sides of the political spectrum.JACQUELIN DUPUIS | LeesburgSecond-hand smoke may kill nonsmokerI was informed today that my 55-y ear-old daughter was diagnosed with a rare mouth cancer. She has never smoked a day in her life. The prognosis depends, along with treatment, on the cooperation of those who light up. Second-hand smoke kills, although not everyone. Are you who smoke willing to risk the health problems of others? Please pray for my daughter.GAIL CAIN | LeesburgGiving to food pantries helps the communityIncreasingly, the volume of discussions on federal spending on food stamps is rising, and the debates are becoming more vocifer ous. Those who want to reduce spending cite the alarming rise in use of food stamp. Those who want to maintain or increase spending point to the rising need to help the less fortunate. No matter where you align yourself on this issue, the fact is the aid program is undergoing reductions. Benets were reduced by about 5 percent on Nov. 1 for all of the nearly 47.7 million Americans on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. A family of four will receive $36 less each month, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A household of eight will see benets decline by $65 a month. The cuts mean fewer federal funds will ow into local communities through the states. All together, $5 billion less in food stamp benets will be paid over the next year. Politics aside, the reductions will perhaps produce unintended consequences by changing the dynamics on the local levels. Families who rely on xed amounts to determine their food budgets will have to nd other sources. And that usually means going to food pantries. Lake Countys Public Transportation Division sponsored its Stuff the Bus campaign last week to boost pantry supplies. Residents were urged to donate nonperish able food, baby and pet items while shopping at specic Walmart and Publix stores. Supplies collected will be given to Angels of Mercy, the Salvation Army and Lake Cares. As the holidays approach, demand for food climbs and family budgets tighten. This puts increasing stress on pantries to keep their shelves adequately stocked. This, in turn, means pantry organizers will increasingly look to residents and groups to ll the widening gap. Angels of Mercy has experienced a signicant increase. The organization has served 500 more people this year alone, said volunteer Marti Albertson. The pantry serves 1,400 people a month. This situation opens for us a door to show that we care, and that were willing to do something about it. YOUR EDITORIAL BOARDROD DIXON . ....................... PUBLISHERBILL KOCH . ...

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 SOUTH LAKE PRESS A5percent). Out of 45,606 registered voters in 29 precincts, 5,748 voters or about 12.5 percent went to the polls. According to the Supervisor of Elections Ofce, all races were decided Tuesday night and there will be no runoffs. Other incumbents who won were Mascotte Mayor Tony Rosado, Minneola May or Pat Kelley, Lady Lake Mayor Jim Richards, Clermont city council member Keith Mullins, Montverde town council members Glenn Burns and Jim Pierce, and Mount Dora city council members Ryan Donovan, Michael Tedder and Dennis Wood. Mount Dora May or Robert Thielhelm Sr. was not seeking reelection and Cathy Hoechst won the job by capturing 58.4 per cent of the vote. She beat challengers Randy Wiseman, who won 32 percent, and Andrew Mullen, who won 9.5 percent. In Lady Lake, Richards won a landslide victory, receiving 75.4 percent of the Ward 5 commission vote compared to 24.5 percent for his opponent, Henryka Presinzano, for mer board member from 2001-07. As he begins his fourth term, Richards said he wants the town to continue to be scally prudent. I just want to continue to watch the expenses, even though we have one of the lowest tax rates, he said. Further, he said economic development remains an important initiative. We are working hard to encourage economic development, he said. We have planted the seeds for future growth. We have the utility covered on the County Road 466 cor ridor and Route 25. It is just a matter of people coming in and taking advantage of the zoning we have done and the investments we have made in infrastructure. In Mount Dora, political newcomer Hoechst is the new mayor, winning with 58.4 per cent of vote. She will be joined on the council by incumbents Tedder, Donovan and Wood. This feels wonder ful and its exciting. We can move forward and start getting focused on what we are going to spend our time planning and looking at doing, said Hoechst, a 30-year Mount Dora resident who worked 35 years in the healthcare eld before spending 10 years as president of the Mount Dora Chamber of Commerce. This will be a new arena for me, said Hoechst, who has sat in council meetings for 10 years. Its going to be a whole differ ent ballgame sitting in the chair; Im sure its going to be a learning curve for me. Hoeschst campaigned outside the Country Club of Mount Dora on Tuesday, the largest voting precinct in the city, and she reected with supporters on what would be her No. 1 goal. I want to get the planning process started for the impact of the Wekiva Parkway that is going to come around, because that is going to be a multi-year process, she said of the 15-mile road and trail that will provide a regional connection between Lake, Seminole and Orange counties. In Mount Doras other city council races: Tedder won 55 percent of the vote for the city council at-large seat versus 44.9 percent for Jon Canas. Donovan received 54 percent for city council district 1 over Brian Paynes 45.9 percent. Im so thankful to the voters, Donovan said. And Im so excited about our new may or. I think she is going to do a fantastic job. Im excited to work with her, and weve got so many big projects coming our way that will be very impactful for the city. Wood received 60.7 percent of the vote in the district 4 race ver sus 39.3 percent won by Carla R. Pepper man. My No. 1 priority is to increase the economic development of Mount Dora, Wood said. And I want to us scally responsible for the voters and the constituents here in Mount Dora. In Clermont, Mullins captured 51.6 per cent of the Seat 4 votes, beating out newcomer Frank Niemi, who received 48.3 percent. In Mascotte, Rosado won 43.7 percent of the vote versus 33 per cent won by Feliciano Felix Ramirez and 23.1 percent won by Bar bara Krull, a long-time councilwoman and the citys current mayor pro-tem. Ramirez is a former mayor who Rosado also beat in the last election. I want to thank the citizens of Mascotte for believing in me and my opponents for keeping me on my toes, Rosado said. The main thing is that I couldnt have done this without the support of my family and especially, my ancee, who has stood by me for through all the ups and downs since Ive been in ofce. Rosado said that in the upcoming term, he will continue to work with the rest of council, City Manager Jim Gleason and the citizens of Mascotte to move Mascotte forward. We will continue to run the city as we have for the last two years, he said. We will continue to be nancially responsible and come up with an economic development plan to take advantage of our resources, especially the new sewer system (currently in progress through a partnership with Groveland), so we can bring new businesses to Mascotte. In Minneola, Kelley won his third term with 59.8 percent of the vote, defeating challengers Debbie Flinn, a former councilwoman, who received 15.6 per cent, and David Yeager, a former councilman and mayor, who gar nered 24.53 percent. In Montverde, Bennett was elated with his close win over Bates. I am a small smidgeon away from cry ing. I am elated, he said. That was a nail biter. I cant thank the residents of Montverde who voted for me enough for their continued condence. A third challenger in that race, Dale Heathman, received 12.9 per cent of the vote. Bennett said he has learned a lot from this election about how to handle conict and eld citizens questions. As mayor for another term, I will do things a little differently when it comes to communicating with the citizens, he said. I want people to love me, love Montverde and the town staff and be happy with what we are doing. I will make sure and build their condence about calling me when they have any issues or questions no matter what, even if it means holding webinars, open forums, whatever it takes. The winners of the three at large council seats in Montverde were Nix with 29.1 per cent of the vote, Pierce with 26.5 percent and Burns with 25.4 per cent. The only other candidate in that race, Christopher Hopkins, captured a losing 18.9 percent. VOTE FROM PAGE A1 LIVI STANFORD | Staff Writerlivi.stanford@dailycommercial.comGathering his students together, Michael Henry asks them a question that resonates with most of them: How many of them have a family member affected by heart disease? Many small hands are raised. I have had multiple people in my family that have had heart disease, said Henry, who has taught physical education at Lost Lake Elementary School in Clermont since 1995. It touches all of us. It is the No.1 and 3 causes of death in the United States. Henry then gets his stu dents rallied for a good cause: to raise money for the American Heart Asso ciation, whose mission is building healthier lives free from cardiovascular disease and stroke. Since 1999, Henry has led a student effort to bring awareness to heart disease by raising more than $205,000 for the American Heart Associations Jump Rope for Heart program. The educational fundraising program engages elementary and mid dle school students with jumping rope or playing basketball while empowering them to improve their own health and help other kids with hearthealth issues, according to the American Heart As sociation. Students ask par ents, family and friends to sponsor them with a at do nation for the program, which takes place in the spring at the school. Recently, Lake County School Board members honored Henry for the program and Lost Lake Elementary School hosted a Coach Henry Day during which students dressed up in the coachs trademark outt: plaid shorts and collarless T-shirts. Students then presented him with a ban ner signed by everyone. Henry, a modest and soft-spoken man, said the effort is student-driven and less about him. I am getting too much credit, he said. It is the community and kids that do more of this. It is all kids. We have less than couple thousand dollars donated by businesses. He cited one fth-grade student who raised $3,000 alone for Jump Rope for Heart. Rhonda Hunt, principal at Lost Lake, said Henry is an exemplary model for how hard teachers work and help children. Aurelia Cole, chief of administration for Lake County public schools, also praised Henrys efforts. We are very proud of his effort because he is teaching kids how to help others and it is making an impact on our community, she said. Henrys passion comes from his vision to promote exercise and awareness of cardiovascular disease. We stress the impor tance of exercise each and every day, he said. It is a proven fact that the kids that are active in school usually do well in school. Henry added that the fundraiser is more than simply encouraging phys ical tness. It is a way to get the kids involved in the com munity, he said. It is im portant for kids to know they have to give back to something else. ROXANNE BROWN | Staff Writerroxanne.brown@dailycommercial.comDenise Truscott, a longtime stage actress and director with the Moon light Players Warehouse Theatre in Clermont, is a sucker for classic movies. That, she said, is part of the reason she chose to stage The Man Who Came To Dinner, at the Moonlight this month. Im a classic movie fan, and I wanted to direct a play around the Christmas season this year. I watch this show every Christmas, so I thought, Why not this one, Truscott said. The Man Who Came to Dinner a comedy by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, was written in 1939. In 1942, it was released as a movie. The screenplay is by Julius and Philip G. Epstein.Students help raise $205K PHOTO COURTESY OF AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION Students at Lost Lake Elementary School take part in the Jump Rope for Heart program to raise money for the American Heart Association.

While there, Whiteside ends up taking over his hosts home after breaking his hip in a fall. As he recovers, Whiteside turns the house upside down with his controlling behaviors, eccentric guests and a variety of critters rang ing from penguins to octopi. Sheridan Whiteside kind of takes over their (familys) house and their lives and comedy ensues, Truscott said. He gets some pretty strange presents and lots of visitors. A lot of them are Hollywood stars, and in Ohio there in this play, people are just not used to that. The Broadway hit was inspired by Kaufman and Harts real-life mu tual friend, critic and author Alexander Woollcott, who at one time played the lead role on Broadway himself. Three other leading characters in the play also are based on reallife personalities of the time, including a char acter named Banjo, a spin-off of Harpo Marx. Truscott said although the play refer ences many things of the past, it is very funny and relevant. The play is based in the 1930s and 1940s so it makes references to the past that people may not know about, but its a classic comedy and still funny today, she said. The situations in it are still pertinent and something that people can laugh at. The cast is comprised of 24 actors and actress es, all of whom Truscott said are very talented. The leads are Dan Martin, who plays Sher idan Whiteside, and Tonya Denmark, who plays Maggie Cutler. This play has a very large cast, so trying to get everyone together at rst was challenging. Everyone is so talent ed, though, and began working very well together quickly and its been very good, Trus cott said. She is pleased with the audience reactions so far. Its a good sign when people come up and tell you they really enjoyed themselves, Truscott said. The play opened on Nov. 1 and runs through Nov. 24. Performances are at 8 / p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, with 2 / p.m. matinees every Sunday. Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $12 for students. The Moonlight Play ers Warehouse Theater is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Clermont at 732B West Montrose St. For reservations, call 352-319-1116.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 SOUTH LAKE PRESS A9 Staff reportThe curtain is coming down on the last remaining Blockbuster Video store in Lake County. Blockbuster Videos parent company, Dish Network, announced this week it would close its remaining 300 U.S. stores. The last store in Lake County is at 240 Citrus Tow er Blvd. in Clermont and will close sometime in January. Blockbuster led for bankruptcy protection in 2010 after struggling with new competitors like Redbox and Netix. Dish Network, which acquired the company out of bankruptcy in April 2011, also announced it would discontinue its DVD-by-mail service intro duced to compete with Netix. At its peak in 2004, when it was owned by Viacom, Blockbuster had up to 60,000 employees and more than 9,000 stores nationwide. But, according to the website screencrush.com, Netixs rise to power also created more competition in the form of Redbox, Am azon streaming, Hulu Plus and countless other services with which Blockbuster simply wasnt able to compete. Dish Network, which primarily offers satellite payTV service, plans to re tain licensing rights to the Blockbuster brand and its vast video library. Media reports say Dish plans to focus on its Blockbuster@Home business, a streaming ser vice available to Dish pay-TV customers for an extra fee.The Sarasota Herald-Tribune, a member of the Halifax Media Group, contributed material to this report.CLERMONTLake Countys last Blockbuster store to close PHOTOS BY LINDA CHARLTON / SOUTH LAKE PRESSThe brass section stands for the closing of Sousas Stars and Stripes Forever at the Veterans Day themed concert at the Clermont opening of the current Florida Lakes Symphony season on Friday.

John Christian is pleased with the community sup port for the Groveland church at 155 Ivey Avenue. Our rst service on Sunday was magnicent, Christian said, pleased by the crowd. I was ecstatic. Christian will be preaching at the church at 9 / a.m., Sunday, for the churchs second service, while his wife will be preaching at the same time at the Christian Worship Center in Leesburg. Shes been doing it for eight years, and then I will come back at 11:30 / a.m. and preach at the main church in Leesburg, said the pastor, who also serves as a Leesburg city commissioner. Christian plans to make the trips back and forth between the two Christian Worship Center sites. We are so excited about the opportunities to minister in South Lake, and we cant wait to see what God will do for this region, he said. He has been pleased with the response so far. Weve had four or ve Hispanic families who have reached out to us out, so we are looking at being a more multi-cultural church that will be bi-lingual, he said, where plans are in the works to add a Spanish ministry and Spanish-speaking service to the church soon. The Christian Wor ship Center of South Lake has been meeting for four months evaluating community needs and praying for direction. We believe God has given us a successful model and approach to ministry and our reach will be broad and Spirit led. Although we have a plan on paper, Go ds plan is far better and we will follow his guidance, Christian said. The pastor said he was looking at the location for two years. The Lord opened the door so that we were able to purchase it, he said. The ministry will be focused on community outreach and family involvement. We are really looking to provide family-oriented services, so we are conscious of time, hope and mind, body soul, he said, noting one of the core components of the church is ac cepting people as they are and allowing the Lord to make them become better. Christian said he and others did some street ministry, where they walked, knocked on doors, and met a lot of people in the Groveland and Mascotte areas. Christian said the 9 / a.m. service will be high ener gy with good preaching and great music. We are really looking for ward to an interactive ministry with the people of South Lake. We believe that we have something great to offer, and welcome people who are looking for a church that is designed for them, and its a cuttingedge church, he said. We need help, we need workers, and we want to make sure that the church meets the needs of the community.

And when it did on Wednesday, a number of so-called supporters started searching for a scapegoat and a pink slip to hand out. By now, everyone likely knows the Bulldogs beat Mount Dora in come-frombehind fashion last week to earn a berth in the Florida High School Athletic Association Class 5A playoffs as the District 11 runnersup. The Bulldogs were set to face perennial Merritt Island in a regional quarternal matchup on Friday in the teams rst postseason game since 2004. It was party time in Ttown and everyone was bleeding Bulldog red. Then the dream turned to a nightmare. School ofcials discovered on Nov. 6 that the team had used a player who was older than the maximum age allowed by the FHSAA 19 years, 9 months. As a result, administrators contacted the FHSAA and self-reported the violation and forfeited three games. Two of those games against Ocala Lake Weir and Orlando Bishop Moore were losses in the scorebook, but the third last weeks game against Mount Dora proved to be the proverbial dagger. By taking down that victory, the Bulldogs dropped into a tie with the Hurricanes for the second-best record in Class 5A-District 11. Since Monday was the date for district tiebreakers and the FHSAA had nalized its playoff brackets, the spot originally held by Tavares in the bracket was vacated and Merritt Island was awarded a quarternalround bye. Thats when the re and pitchforks came out. On the football programs Facebook page, the situation was addressed and supporters were informed the THS makes right choice to self-report KEVIN BROCKWAY Halifax Media GroupKasey Hill arrived on Flor idas campus this summer with plenty of accolades. A McDonalds All-Amer ican at Montverde Acade my, Hill has been compared to former Kentucky point guards John Wall and Rajon Rondo because of his quickness and athletic ability. Not many 6-foot-1 point guards are capable of play ing above the rim. But Hill is a high-wire act whose leap ing ability belies his slight frame. More than anything, Hill said his goal as a freshman is to t in with his team mates. Im an unselsh, humble dude, Hill said. Im car ing. I think all three of those things are things my teammates can feed off of. That was the main thing I wanted to do. I try to act as normal as possible. I dont think Im better than anyone else. Hill will need to contribute right away as a freshman point guard for the Ga tors with UF starter Scottie Wilbekin suspended to start the season for violation of team rules. So far, Florida coach Billy Donovan has been pleased with how well Hill is picking things up in practice. But Donovan has been even more impressed with Hills humility and how he has endeared himself to his teammates. Hes earned their trust, Donovan said. I think hes earned their respect, hes worked really hard. Hes worked hard off the court with those guys. The guys on our team really, real ly like him. Thats the best thing. When youre a point guard and you can have a support group around you as a freshman of guys that want to see you succeed and do well, that helps. The Gators will need Hill to score at times to make up for the offensive punch lost by departed seniors Kenny Boynton, Erik Murphy and Mike Rosario. But Hill has matured enough through his high school career to know the balance between creating his own shot and keeping his teammates in volved. On a star-laden team at Montverde Academy, as a high school senior, Hill av eraged 13.5 points and six assists per game. Ive already seen guys rallying around him, said Florida sophomore guard Michael Frazier II, who played with Hill at Montverde Academy during the 2011-12 season. Ive tried to take him under my wing a little bit and show him the ropes because I know hes going to be thrown right into the re. He needs to be ready.Kevin Brockway is the mens basketball writer at The Gainesville Sun. Contact him at 352374-5054 or email at brockwk@ gvillesun.com.

FRANK JOLLEY | Staff Writerfrank.jolley@dailycommercial.comLake and Sumter counties were represented at Sat urdays Florida High School Athletic Association Cross Country Championships at Apalachee Regional Park in Tallahassee. For a while, in the Class 1A boys race, it appeared that Mount Dora Bible might have to make room for a state championship trophy. Bulldogs senior Troy Clark hit the rst checkpoint in the 5-kilometer run ahead of all other competitors, but tailed off in the stretch to nish fourth in 16 minutes, 10.07 seconds. Clarks run was the top nish for all area runners over the course which wound through the and the woods near the state cap itol. Windermere Preps Fran co Martins won the race in 15:44.23 and hit the inter mediate checkpoint trailing Clark by .12 seconds. Clark was the only area runner in the boys Class 1A race. In the girls Class 1A race, Christina McKinney led Mount Dora Bible to a 13th place nish with 162 points. Melbourne Holy Trinity won the team title with 44 points, followed by Gainesville Oak Hall with 72 points. McKinney also posted the best nish by any area girls runner, nishing 11th. She stopped the clock in 18:54.92. Melbourne Holy Trinitys Julie Wollrath won with a time of 18:14.88. In the girls Class 2A event, Montverde Academys Ciara Hopkins ran as an individu al and nished in 40th place with a time of 20:29.02. In the boys Class 2A race, Montverde Academy had two runners competing as individuals Ryder Vali quette (55th place, 17:02.74) and Conner Bergin (78th, 17:18.48). The Villages elded a team in the race and were led by Kyle Fox, who nished 62nd with a time of 17:09.44. The next-best Buffalo was Ed ward Sanchez in 92nd place with a time of 17:31.12. Winter Park Trinity Prep won the team in Class 2A with 31 points, followed by Jacksonville Bishop Kenny with 96 points. The Villages nished 21st with 160 points.Clark finishes fourth at state championship KEVIN BROCKWAYHalifax Media GroupMichael Frazier II emerged as a pleasant surprise for the Uni versity of Florida last season as a freshman, shooting 46.8 percent from 3-point range while provid ing scoring punch off the bench. Fraziers poise was apparent in the NCAA Tournament, where he made back-to-back 3-point ers in the rst half that helped the Gators rally to a 62-50 win in the Sweet 16 against Florida Gulf Coast University. This season, Frazier, a former Montverde Academy standout, has prepared for an expanded role. Florida coach Billy Don ovan is counting on Frazier to make shots and provide offense with the departures of Erik Mur phy, Kenny Boynton and Mike Rosario. With senior guard Scottie Wilbekin facing a suspension to start the season, Frazier is ex pected to crack the starting line up when the season opens Friday against North Florida. My team is going to need me to have an increased role this year, Frazier said. I knew that going into the summer. Ive been really trying to expand my game. Frazier received a condence boost when Donovan selected him to Team USAs 19-under World Championship team over the summer. Team USA won the golf medal, but Frazier struggled nding his shooting stroke ear ly before heating up late. As a shooting specialist off the bench, Frazier nished the tournament just 29.4 percent from 3-point range from the international dis tance. Donovan said Fraziers teammates on Team USA encouraged him to keep Michael Frazier looking to build on solid rookie season at Florida Florida Gators guard Michael Frazier II celebrates making a three point shot against the Ole Miss Rebels.MATT STAMEY / HALIFAX MEDIA GROUPMy team is going to need me to have an increased role this year.

He learned a lot about himself because he went through some adver sity, Donovan said. It wasnt like he went out there and shot the cover off the ball and was non-stop, 50 per cent 3-point shooter. That was any thing from the truth. He had to work through some adversity. I think he handled it in a way that really helped him grow.Kevin Brockway is the mens basketball writer at The Gainesville Sun. Contact him at 352374-5054 or email at brockwk@gvillesun. com.

Solomon has 38 catches for 938 yards this season for the Eagles and has also spent time as quarterback and on the defensive side of the ball. He had also been considering Eastern Kentucky and Jacksonville Uni versity. Said Scott Armatti, South Lakes re cruiting coordinator for the football team, Buck has been a hard work ing, seless player for us, always thinking about the team before him self. He played quarterback out of necessity last year, so his talent as a receiver was not showcased. Were proud of him and excited for him.GROVELANDSouth Lakes Buck Solomon verbally commits to FAMU

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 SOUTH LAKE PRESS B7 violation was unintentional and the school turned itself in rather than get caught at a later date and be penalized by the FHSAA for knowingly violating the organizations by laws. That shouldve been the end of it. In fact, the school and its athletic department shouldve been commended for doing the right thing. By giving up what was just the second playoff berth for the football program in 29 years, they sent a message to the entire state that playing by the rules is the only way to go. Once again, sports helps to teach lessons in life. Shortly after the explanation was posted, a variety of replies were made. Many were from supporters thanking the team for the excitement it generated in the community and commending them for their efforts. It appeared that Facebook was going to help the school, the team and the community come together at a time when many were at an absolute low point. But then the lunatic fringe came out. People started offering opinions about who should lose their jobs over the debacle. Debacle? It was an accident. According to Websters New World Dictionary, a debacle is a total, often ludicrous, collapse or failure. What was ludicrous? Where was the collapse? Granted the failure, I guess, was from someone not catching the age of the player in question before it became an FHSAA violation. Still, that alone doesnt make it a debacle. Again, it was an accident. An unintentional, painful accident. Understandably, the original Facebook post concerning the incident was taken down once the venom began owing. It was obvious this was another situation where a group of supporters had all the answers, like those par ent-coaches who sit in the stands every Friday and offer mostly unwelcome insight to anyone within earshot. From their perch, sitting behind a laptop at the kitchen table, its easy to call for someones job. Rather than whining and offering opinion from afar, take a drive over to the school and offer to do the job. I guess that sound of crickets chirping means that no one will take the challenge. Why? Not enough time to help? Theres enough time for people to complain and opine about someones employment status, but not enough time to offer assistance. So typical. Tavares should celebrate at tonights season-nale against Deltona Pine Ridge. Fans should pack the house and honor a senior class that helped to restore the Bulldogs to football relevance. Stay long after the game is over and soak in the aura of a successful season. Cheer louder than you ever have before. Make todays game a playoff game. A mistake was made and Tavares showed a great deal of honor and dignity by reporting themselves, even though school ofcials knew what the consequences would be. In reality, they should be commended, not castigated, for the lessons they taught us all.Frank Jolley is a columnist for the Daily Commercial.

Educational topics covered in the CIPS designation program teach Realtors how to address the complicated nancial, legal and cultur al considerations that come with an international clientele.

On the ground there is a woman with a dead stag and a hunting dog at her feet and across from her another woman with a gentleman at her feet. This lady appears to have birds (presumably dead ones) on her lap. Between these two groups there is a cloth spread on the ground with a small bowl of fruit and two bottles of spirits. All are in 18th-century-style dress, but this piece is far from having been made in the 18th centu ry. P.W.M. is correct in that this piece was made in Scheibe-Alsbach, in the German province of Thuringia. The company that manufactured this item is the A.W. Fr. Kister Porcelain Manufactory, which was established in 1837 or 1838. Many of the A.W. Fr. Kister porcelains are of single gures dressed as Napoleonic-era soldiers. For the most part, these are not especially valu able, but are often sold in groupings that can be quite large. We found a grouping of nine individ ual gures (Napoleon and his generals) that sold for $1,100 at auction in 2007. However, some Kister gure groups can be large and elaborate. Two of these sold at Christies in London in 2010. One was gold and white and depicted Napoleon and Josephine playing chess on a table with X shaped supports. The other was smaller and also depicted people (this time in fancy 18th-century costume) playing chess. The two groups sold together for a little more than $3,000. But most Kister porcelain groups sell at auction for much less. We are not sure why these particular Kister groups sold for so much, but we do think it is a price that would be hard to replicate in most markets. As a general rule, 19thand early-20th-century European porcelain gure groups are not doing all that well when put up for sale. Most modern collectors (those spending money in the mar ketplace right now) look negatively upon these groupings and associate them with the dusty bric-a-brac found on mantel or curio cabinet shelves. It is unfortunate that P.W. M. did not tell us the size of this object, so we cannot really appraise it with any accuracy. However, we feel it probably has an insurance-replacement value of $1,500 or less.Helaine Fendelman and Joe Rosson are the authors of Price It Yourself. Email them at treasures@knology.net. WORTH FROM PAGE C2 DWIGHT BARNETTScripps Howard News ServiceQ I recently noticed a stain on the vi nyl ooring next to the toilet. Ive tried to clean the stain, but it appears to be un der the vinyl ooring. What causes this and how can it be treated?A When I see a stain next to a toilet, my rst thought is that the toilet bowl is leaking where it is attached to the sewer pipe at the oor. Try to rock the toilet bowl from side to side to see if it is loose. A loose toilet bowl needs to be removed to see how much, if any, damage has been caused by the leak. The vinyl oor ing will need to be replaced, and you should also inspect and replace any water-damaged subooring you might nd. It would be best to install a new oor covering before the toilet bowl is installed. Turn off the water supply to the toilet tank, drain the tank by holding the handle down and then use a sponge to remove the remaining water. Disconnect and remove the water-supply pipe to the toilet. If the ange is cracked or broken, you will need to install a replacement ange avail able at most home and hardware stores. Once the bowl and ange are clean, apply a new wax ring to the bottom of the bowl and carefully reset the bowl over the oor ange while lining up the two bolts at the oor.

The root causes of many of these problems that arise during the con struction process are the mistakes caused by inattentiveness, in experience, miscom munication and poor processes. Mistakes in the construction industry have become epidemic and the chances for quick solutions are slim given the horric brain drain created by the Great Recession. No one in the construction process including the homeowner wants a job that is riddled with one mistake after another. However, until all par ties learn to proper ly communicate, mistakes are inevitable. The reluctance of so many in the construction industry to put pen to paper and have written agreements with detailed specications is probably where most mistakes originate. Verbal discussions are easily misinterpreted and the hopes and wishes of many homeowners disappear in a half-listened-to conversation. Homeowners should demand that every thing be put in writing so that expectations are crystal clear. Everything in construction starts with a blueprint (or plan), and unfortunately many construction professionals believe the quality of plans have deteriorated over the last several years. While new technology in plan drawing has made it easier, it has opened the door to a lot of cutting and pasting old specications from one plan to another, which leads to inattentiveness to detail. Very few draftsmen will taken the time to accurately draw in the proper specications for millwork and windows; plus, most have never actually engineered the trusses. Project owners who thoroughly review plans and demand clear specications on products, with sizes drawn into the plan, will eliminate many mistakes. As a homeowner, if you cant speak the construction language you had better ask for an interpreter or make sure you ask for a full explanation of build ing nomenclatures and terms. For example, in the construction industry a 3068LH interior door unit is not a 30-inch wide by 68inch high inside door with a hinge on the left, but rather it is a 3-foot, 0-inch wide by 6-foot, 8-inch high interior door unit that swings to the left. Every day in America, doors and windows are ordered wrong because the builders and homeowners do not speak the same language. If selecting the right contractor is the most important aspect of any building project, then selecting the cor rect products is not too far behind. For most building materials, there are varying grades, specications and warranties. Frequently, project owners will select an inferior product in the name of cutting a cor ner to build more than they can afford. Dissatisfaction in product appearance and per formance is one of the biggest mistakes made in construction. The old adage inspect what you expect is the single best piece of advice that any one can give a person building a construction project. While it may be aggravating to walk construction projects, it is imperative the project owner or someone they can trust reviews the project daily while in the construction process. It is way too common where subcontractors misinterpret or get the wrong infor mation, which could lead to mistakes. Project owners should not be shy in reviewing the work of others on their project. No one should care more than the project owner. Building a construction project requires a lot of time, ener gy and focus in which some people simply do not have. If you cannot devote the time to a building project then dont jump in. If you make the decision to tackle a building project it is imperative that you review the details, conduct independent research, ask advice, and then make the best decision you can. In construction, you really do have to sweat the details to eliminate big mistakes.

Best described as a fearless approach to excess, the Moroc can look may have evolved as a counter point to the monotone deserts that cov er much of this North African country. Since the first cara vans crisscrossed the deserts and climbed the Atlas mountains, Morocco has been a melting pot of European, Middle Eastern and African cultures. Intricate patterns and textures collide with color to create a kind of clashing continuity. J.Crew is featur ing fall sweaters influenced by scarves and rugs found in the Marrakech market. The ubiquitous hoodie favored around the world is just a cropped jelaba, a full-length hooded robe worn by both men and women since the days of the prophets. Also popular with Moroccans and tour ists are turbans and babouches, which are rounded or pointed leather slippers. Yellow pointed babouch es with a striped jelaba is Moroccos version of the blue blazer and flannels. As for the colors, co balt blue and green tones come from miles of Atlantic and Mediterranean coastline, pinks from sand dunes lit by the sunset and the reds from the clay that surrounds Marrakech. So from souk to sea, Morocco is the place to be if you want to see the source for this easy-to-assemble style trend.Contact Patricia Sheridan at psheridan@post-gazette.com, or follow her on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pasheridan.Morocco spreads its style influence westward
