By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING After weeks of qualifying rounds and dozens of contestants the finalists for Heartland Idol 2010 Junior and Teen Divisions were selected Thursday night. The advancing juniors are: Alexandrea Hornick, 12; Larissa Meagher, 10; Nala Price, 11; Abigail Smith, 10; and Becca Temple, 11. The advancing teens are: Jacqueline Alonso, 13; Tiffani Broder, 15; Megan Harvey, 15; Carmen Ortiz, 17; and Lauren Scaffe,15. Threatening rain and earlier showers did not dampen the contest this week as organizers made "frantic phone calls" and arranged for a last minute change of venue to the Highlands County Fairgrounds. Diana Walker, founder of Idol, said the staff at the Highlands County Fair Association office couldn't have been more helpful. Because rain is a perennial problem, she added, and because the event is outgrowing the Historic Circle, the Idol is considering a permanent change. Organizers are hoping to be able to use the newly opened civic center next season. No decisions have been made.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Saturday's debut of the Drug Enforcement Agency pharmaceutical take back program was a welcomed success. The Highlands County Sheriff's Office branch in the Lakeshore Mall saw a great deal of traffic from residents dropping off unwanted, unused and expired over-thecounter and prescription drugs. At a little after 12:30 p.m. Debbie Lees along with Sissy High, evidence tech, and Deputy Sharon Cornine had a count of 94 residents who had dropped off medicines at the mall location. "It's been a great event; the response has been outstanding," Lees said.

POLICEBLOTTER By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Jim Fitch has enriched the community for years from his work at South Florida Community College's Museum of Florida Art and Culture, to his promotion of the Highwaymen artists, to his association with the Highlands Art League, to the Primal Connection drum program, to mention just a few. Friday afternoon people gathered at the Sebring Airport to salute Fitch. Mayor George Hensley began the festivities by reading a proclamation in Fitch's honor, naming the day Jim Fitch Day. The gathering, however, was as much about celebrating Fitch's latest idea, as it was about celebrating the man. With the support of the Heartland Cultural Alliance, Fitch spearheaded the creation of art gallery space at the airport. Local artists will have the opportunity to show their work there, hopefully catching the eye of arriving visitors and creating a place that will draw art lovers from town. Each show will have a formal opening. Fitch's own work makes up the first display. Afour-person selection committee, serving for a year at a time, will select the artists. Fred Leavitt, part of the organizing team, said the rules to govern how the space would be used were still being decided. For example, a decision had to made as to whether artists who show their work at slow times in the year be allowed more time in the space. There are many reasons to show art work, Leavitt said. "Alot of people come here in private or corporate jets. Those are people who have disposable income. This provides exposure to people more likely to buy. "It also shows them that Highlands County is not a wasteland. That it is an artistic community. We want Highlands to become an artistic destination." He added that art promotes the economy. Artists attract galleries, he said, galleries attract restaurants, which in turn attract people, audiences attract performers, who attract theaters; that leads to hotels, specialized shops and so forth. "When people understand the economic value of arts and culture," Leavitt said," they will understand the importance of emphasizing it." He smiled, "We have some really, really good talent here." News-sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLE Y Jim Fitch, with examples of his painting, was honored for his contributions to the art community Friday afternoon at the Sebring airport. It was also the opening of art gallery space. Local artists will be able to have personal displays so arriving visitors are introduced to the Highlands County art world immediately upon arrival.

M embers of the Lake Placid T own Council s howed wisdom d uring a special m eeting Wednesd ay night when t hey changed a d ecision made at t heir Monday regul ar meeting.The town had sent out bids f or a banking line of credit. T he only response had been f rom Heartland National B ank. In the discussion about w hether to sign on to the b ank's offer, it turned out c ouncil members Ray Royce a nd Steve Bastardi are shareh olders of the bank. When Royce and Bastardi a sked Town Attorney Bert H arris III if they should r ecuse themselves from voti ng on the bank's proposed l ine of credit, Harris told t hem they did not have to w orry as the price of bank s tock would not be directly connected to their decisions as council members. To their credit, Royce and Bastardi still decided to abstain from voting. Much more problematical is the fact that while Harris also serves as the Heartland National Bank's attorney and sits on its board of directors, he offered no objections to or possible conflicts of interest regarding his own position. With Harris'guidance that Monday night, the two council members eligible to vote, Debra Worley and Cheryl Davis, approved accepting the Heartland National bank's line of credit. Wednesday night, however, Town Clerk Arlene Tuck raised additional concerns. In particular, she worried about the conflict Harris faces as attorney for two different entities, which might one day have competing interests. How could Harris advocate for both the town and the bank? She asked. In cases of a disagreement, would the town one day have to bring in another lawyer? Good questions. Frankly, we are shocked that Harris didn't seem to understand the situation, one of the most basic a town attorney addresses. What a lack of vital service. And Harris has been Lake Placid's attorney long enough to know better even if it turns out his law school provided him with a second rate education and he was never taught the finer points of ethical law. One of the strengths of a smaller community is that everyone knows everyone else. One of the drawbacks of a smaller community is that everyone knows everyone else. That's how insular cliques develop. It's how decent people come to rationalize themselves into all sorts of trouble, doing all sorts of damage "I'm one of the good guys." If Harris feels it is acceptable for one man to serve in two, mutually exclusive positions at the same time, it makes us wonder what other ideas he has. We direct no criticism to Heartland National Bank, which was simply doing its job. But, we do congratulate Lake Placid for seeing a problem and solving it quickly. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 26, 2010Page 3A EDITORIAL& OPINION TODAY'SEDITORIALTODAY'SLETTERS 2227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 863-385-6155 NEWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. 515editor@newssun.com SCOTT DRESSELEditor Ext. 516scott.dressel@newssun.comDAN HOEHNESports Editor Ext. 528daniel.hoehne@newssun.com ADVERTISINGVICKIE JONESExt. 518vickie.jones@newssun.com CIRCULATIONTONY MCCOWANExt. 522anthony.mccowan@newssun.com PRE-PRESSKEN BAREFIELDProduction Coordinator Ext. 594prepress@newssun.com BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONExt. 596legals@newssun.com Like many of you, I have a love/hate relationship with food. The relationship is complicated by the fact that I have been on and off diets since I was in college. Once upon a time, I maintained a healthy weight. It has been a long time since I've pulled that off. So I've gone through periods of various means of weight reduction, with various levels of success. Currently I'm on a low carb diet. This means while things such as meat, cheese, and vegetables are allowed, pasta, starches, and breads are not. Guess what I like more? Here's a hint: I'm the kind of person who could happily eat mashed potatoes for breakfast. I miss bread and pasta. But Don pulled the health card on me when this diet came up. So I am grimly trying to comply, trying to think of ways to make the new way of eating more palatable. And yes, if you were in Bob Evans last week, I did break down and enjoy some banana bread. I'm not perfect, okay? The problem with any diet is it won't work unless you are willing to make some long-term changes in your eating habits. If you eat one way to lose your weight and then go back to eating the way that got the weight on in the first place well, you now understand why a lot of people struggle with the whole diet thing. One other thing about dieting is that food stays on your mind. At least that's what happens to me. I think about what I can have, what I can't have, and why can't someone make lettuce taste like chocolate? Actually we might be on the way to the last item. I base this on a story I found on the Internet about messing with the genetics of fish. According to the article, a company called AquaBounty has genetically altered some salmon so they grow a lot bigger than conventional salmon. They had a picture of one of these large fish on the We b site. I looked at it and the overriding question on my mind was: Are salmon alway s that ugly? I'm not a big salmon eater anyway, and th e look of this fish doesn't exactly excite my appetite. Anyway, the FDAwas su pposed to hear arguments for and against marketing the enhanced fish last week. Proponents claim it could help with world hunger obviously bigger fish feed more people. Critics are wor ried about potential allergic reactions and the decimation of the wild salmon should th e genetically altered fish escape. While genetically engineered crops are used in this country, this is the first time the government has considered allowing the consumption of altered animals. The FDAhas already ruled that they are reasonably certain the new salmon are safe to eat, so I get the feeling they're leaning towards approving the fish for marke t. While I'm not totally against such a decision, I admit I have questions. Afte r all, I've seen "Jurassic Park. Tinkering with genetics can lead to all kinds of disasters What if the altered fish wound up in the general salmon population? Could w e wind up with prehistoric fish that will proceed to eat us instead of the other way around? I will be watching this develop with great interest. In the meantime, if scientists want to use this power for good, they can work on mak ing squash taste like garlic bread or Brussels sprouts taste like anything else. I'd go on, but all this talk about food is making me hu ngry. Just do me a favor and hide the banana bread, OK? Laura Ware is a Sebring res ident.

It's hard for me to be against s omething that will save the lives of p eople like my wife. It does not h ave a death panel and the leader of t he Florida Tea Party stood in H omer's and stated that he lied a bout the "pull the plug on G randma" and bragged about how g ood the lie was. I'd like to just see the truth. It's n ot all pretty and it's not very dang a ffordable, but it's a start and sure a s heck needed. Ray Napper SebringTime to make it right E ditor: At (the recent) gathering at the D emocratic Headquarters, I handd elivered a letter to Alex Sink that a ddressed concerns of some local c itizens. I informed her of a plan we w ould like to present to her at a l ater date, but before elections, conc erning important and timely immig ration issues. I have recently spoke with some b usinessmen in produce, citrus and d airy about some issues and conc erns. This plan also concerns the w ell being of the Hispanic/Latino p opulation that are good, law-abidi ng citizens who have held jobs, educated themselves/their families and are living a productive life. No more information can be given at this time until a meeting takes place to discuss this matter on a one-on-one basis. There are approximately 1,400,000-plus registered Hispanic voters in the state of Florida. If this or a similar plan were presented to Alex Sink and put into action, it could generate a substantual amount of Hispanic registered voters as well as others. The questions was asked at the meeting if Alex Sink supported the Arizona S/B 1070. She said she opposed the bill and said "this is not Arizona." We need a plan to help the Hispanic/Latinos, not hurt them. Immigration reform is a big problem not only in the entire United States but also here in Florida. We need to come together to help develop a plan that will make Florida stand out above all other states with good, fair laws. We can not afford to waste time. We need representatives in our state offices that will challenge these unfair, unconstitutional laws and create laws that will benefit everyone. I will not stop until I present this plan to someone who will listen and take action. In the meantime, I would like to encourage any and everyone who may has an immigration issue or concern to send their letters to me at: Patricia Austin, P.O.Box 2001, Avon Park, FL33826-2001; or email me at pkaustin2006@earthlink.net. These letters/e-mails will be personally hand delivered to Alex Sink. It's time to come together and make it right.

Special thanks to Fred Leavitt, Heartland Cultural Alliance president, who when we spoke to him about helping us mount this show simply said "what can we do"? His efforts in publicity and getting the word out to local artists to join this show were phenomenal. HCAboard members Marjory O'Meara, Dr. Charlotte Pressler and Gail Leavitt never faltered in their support of Sebring's first themed art show. Gene Brenner, whose generosity in providing us a free, beautiful space and much downtown wisdom, had a huge impact in the success of the show as did the publicity provided by the fine folks at WFHT 1390 AM. Opening night had plenty of great food, drinks and decorations to share with the estimated 200 visitors thanks to the efforts of friends and businesses including Frames & Images, Robbins'Nursery, The Blue Crab Restaurant, Mae Lee's Deli, Sebring Furniture, Taylor Rental, C & G Supplies, L'Attique, Rustic House, Reba Cornejo, Maria Vasquez, Anne Hardy, David Smith and Vern Dense. Pastor George Miller set the tone with his opening invocation while classical guitarist Ken Summers provided just the right mood music during the event. I wish we had the means to provide substantial monetary rewards to our artists; however everyone was delighted with the gift certificates presented for the works deemed exceptional by Mollie Doctrow, Curator of South Florida Community College's impressive Museum of Fine Arts and Culture (MOFAC). The results were: Best of Show "Look Away" ink jet on canvas by William Daily, first place "Eve of Destruction" by Joseph Anthony and second place "Unmixable" fiber art by Linn Shimek. Abig thank you to our local me rchants who provided these certificates: Highlands Little Theatre, Th e Circle Salon, Bella Vista Restaurant, Don Jose Mexican Restaurant, Cowboys BBQ and Steak Co., Chicanes and The Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce. Denise Miriani and Josep h Antho ny Sebrin g Food pantry donation was unexpectedEditor: On Saturday, Sept. 18, I was shopping at Publix on U.S. 27 South, replenishing supplies for ou r church's food pantry. In one of the aisles a friendly woman commente d that I must be purchasing for a group. We had a brief exchange about the food pantry and the sadness of children needing food. As I was at the checkout, paying for my purchases, this woman approached me again, this time handing me a cash donation for ou r pantry. I was so surprised by this generous act that I failed to ask he r name. So to this unknown benefactor w e offer our sincere "thank you". You are truly a woman of faith; may God bless you. Ours is a small con gregation, but with the generosity of our members and friends we are able to offer assistance to residents of the Spring Lake and Lorida com munities.

When Emcee David F lowers asked if the audience p referred the fairgrounds to C ircle Park the applause was n ot enthusiastic. That was not the case when i t came to appreciating the y oung people singing. Everyone was greeted w armly, and some of the girls d rew wild applause. Katie Dean's grandparents, f or example, came all the w ay from Annapolis, Md. to s ee and hear her perform. Again the judges stressed t he importance of picking the r ight song to sing. Don't just p ick a song you like, the cont estants were told, pick a s ong that suits your voice. And for heaven's sake, the j udges said, don't be shy, s ing out. "Get up there and let it g o," judge Mike Henry said. "Turn loose and have a g ood time," said judge Dale D orman, who has toured with B rooks & Dunn as their d rummer. "Just your voice is big enough," judge Sue McCollum said. The three youngest singers who took part in the inaugural Lil'Idol took that advice to heart, singing without selfconsciousness. Kira Swift, 5, sang the "Itsy Bitsy Spider," her sister Ocean Swift, 3, sang the Alphabet Song, and Meadow DeLong, 3, sang "You Are My Sunshine." When they were done, all three little girls joined in a high engery skip, bounce and leap dance, exuding joy and a delightful love of life. The Junior Finale takes place next week Thursday, Sept. 30. Watch for the announcement of where it will take place, as plans are still being made. The first of the adult qualifying rounds will be held after the junior finale.

By CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press WriterWASHINGTON W hether they are sore losers o r never-say-die patriots, t hird-party candidates threate n to tip a handful of cong ressional and gubernatorial r aces to contenders who othe rwise might have lost this f all. Nine-term Rep. Mike C astle of Delaware is the t hird prominent Republican t o consider a third-party bid t his year after a suffering a s tinging setback at the hands o f tea-party-backed conserv atives. If Castle decides to make a n independent run for S enate, he will join Florida G ov. Charlie Crist and A laska Sen. Lisa Murkowski i n refusing to let GOPprim ary voters force them into r etirement. While Crist, Murkowski a nd Castle are well-known p oliticians, many third-party c ampaigns are lonely, lowb udget affairs with little hope o f winning more than 2 or 3 p ercent of the vote. But in e xtremely tight races, that c ould be enough to swing the o utcome between the D emocratic and Republican n ominees. In several cases, Democrats hope to benefit from third-party campaigns by conservatives with tea party ties, who threaten to pull votes from the Republican nominees. That's the hope of two hard-pressed House Democrats in Virginia, Tom Perriello and Glenn Nye. Their well-financed GOP opponents failed to persuade one or more of their unsuccessful Republican rivals from mounting independent campaigns, which conceivably could siphon away enough conservative votes to sink the GOPnominee. Third-party candidates rarely win, but they're sometimes successful "in pulling the rug out from under the nominee" who defeated them in the party primary, said Ross K. Baker, a Rutgers University political scientist. "They're disgruntled primary losers, and they want revenge," he said. Among the nation's most famous, or infamous, thirdparty efforts was Ralph Nader's 2000 presidential bid. He won enough liberal votes in Florida to keep Democrat Al Gore from carrying the state and becoming president. Connecticut voters elected third-party candidates Lowell Weicker as governor and Joe Lieberman as senator, but few other Americans have matched their success. This year's most visible third-party campaigns are being mounted by prominent Republicans who fell victim to tea party-backed candidates who labeled them as too accommodating to Democrats. Crist left the Republican Party in April when it became clear that Marco Rubio, a tea party favorite, would win the party's Senate nomination. Republican officials hope Crist's independent campaign will pull about as many votes from Democrat Kendrick Meek as from Rubio. That probably would lead to a Rubio win, unless Crist can take huge numbers from both rivals. More recently, Murkowski, who lost the Alaska GOP nomination to tea party favorite Joe Miller, has launched a write-in campaign to try to keep the seat she has held since 2002. Political insiders say the effort probably will fail, as has every Senate write-in campaign since 1954. But it's hard to predict whether Murkowski would pull more votes from Miller or from Democrat Scott McAdams, leaving Miller's front-runner status slightly in doubt. On Friday, top GOPofficials were urging Castle to drop the notion of a write-in campaign after his stunning loss to insurgent conservative Christine O'Donnell in the Senate primary. "I just think write-ins are long shots," said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, head of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. "As chairman of a party committee, it is our responsibility to support the nominee, the choice of the primary voters, and that's what we're going to do." Some third-party candidates are hurting Democrats as well. AGreen Party candidate in Arkansas is likely to take votes from Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln, who is trailing Republican John Boozman in polls. In House races, Republicans hope to benefit from a Hispanic independent candidate who might pull votes from Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.). In a Michigan race, a tea party candidate and a Green Party candidate might essentially cancel each other out in Democratic Rep. Mark Schauer's re-election battle against Republican Tim Walberg. Third-party candidates also are affecting governors' races. In Colorado, Republicans say anti-immigrant crusader Tom Tancredo killed the party's already slim hopes in the open gubernatorial contest by running as an independent this fall. In Massachusetts, independent Timothy Cahill vows to stay in the gubernatorial race despite the resignations of two top staffers. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 26, 2010Page 7A LIMITED SPACE … CALLTODAY! 5 DAYS a week$ 30 Get In Shape Learn Self Defense Improve Self Esteem Make Better Grades MARTIAL ARTS AMERICA471-2467 Best After School Program in SebringFREEPICKUP from: Kindergarten Learning Center, Cracker Trail, Sun-N-Lakes, Woodlawn, Fred Wild, Memorial, Hill Gustat, Sebring Middle/High Located on Kenilworth Sebring*Some Restrictions Apply Life Care, Not Day Care r emembers Sandlin fondly.

Seconds after responding to the accident, a deputy saw Nowell's car, with heavy front-end damage, heading east on U.S. 98. The deputy made a U-turn and hit his siren, but the Nissan accelerated away, going through a red light without slowing. Nowell ran another red light, at Scenic Highway 98, where a 2007 Chevrolet pickup made a left turn onto U.S. 98, according to a Florida Highway Patrol news release. The alreadymangled Nissan collided with the pickup, rolled over the median of U.S. Highway 98 and into oncoming traffic. The Chevy also rolled onto its roof.

I couldn't have done it without the help of the administrators I've worked with and my husband who has supported me from years," Jernigan said. Jernigan was approached by two women after the gala and found a surprise. "They were my thirdgrade students many years ago. One of the ladies has a daughter who is a teacher's assistant at Cracker Trail," Jernigan said. The fact that Jernigan has inspired so many is proof that there are still individuals who work hard to change and touch the lives of children. "Judge Kelly motivated me many years ago to do more for the community. I just want to continue to lift up the people who help children and continue and honor his legacy," said Kevin Roberts, president of the Champion for Children Foundation. Both Roberts and recipient Jernigan agree that the organization is a great way to recognize the people who are constantly working to make a difference in the lives of children. "It's great to bring these people to the forefront. There can only be one winner, but everyone deserves to be recognized," Jernigan said. The gala was filled with residents and dignitaries looking to uplift the five nominees for their outstanding advocacy for the children of Highlands County. Both Highlands Regional and Florida Hospital were this year's premier sponsors for the event. The proceeds from the gala will be donated to various centers and funds within the Children's Services Foundation. Roberts was very pleased with this year's finalists as well as all those involved with the gala. "I can not say nicer things about both hospitals. They both joined forces and put their competitive spirits aside to lift up this event and these great spirits," Roberts said.

"We were all taught to flush them," Lees said. But Lees is excited that the event is educating people and allowing everyone to properly dispose of their prescriptions and drugs. Several residents came in with multiple bags of prescriptions, leaving the dropoff location box overflowing. The ladies at the location were on top of the event and continued to take all the medications being brought in. "I can't wait to see how many pounds we've collected," Lees said. High stated that the tally would be completed by 3 p.m. Saturday. Many residents spoke of how helpful the event was to them and felt great that they did not have to worry about their identities being known.

Sales were d own by 29 percent from the same m onth a year earlier. Normally the building industry p owers economic recoveries. Each n ew home built creates, on average, t he equivalent of three jobs for a year a nd generates about $90,000 in taxes, a ccording to the National Association o f Home Builders. But housing has been at the center o f this downturn and it shows no s igns of recovering quickly. The only time new home sales w ere slower was in May, when the s ales pace was 282,000. That's the worst pace on records dating back to 1963. July's results had been the worst on record, but were adjusted upward. "This is a pitiful performance but it should not come as a surprise to see sales so weak," Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist for High Frequency Economics. "We don't expect to see any meaningful pickup in sales until next year." High unemployment, tight credit and uncertainty about home prices have kept people from buying new and previously occupied homes. Government tax credits boosted the market earlier in the year, but those expired in April. Sales of previously occupied homes rose 7.6 percent in August from July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.13 million, the National Association of Realtors said Thursday. That was the second-worst month for that category in more than a decade. July was the worst month in 15 years. The median sales price for a new home in August was $204,700. That was down 1.2 percent from a year earlier and the lowest since December 2003. Gains in Western and Northeastern states canceled out losses in the Midwest and South. Sales grew by more than 54 percent in the West and by 17 percent in the Northeast. They fell 26 percent in the Midwest and 11 percent in the South. Builders are competing with millions of foreclosures and other distressed properties that show no signs of abating. They are unlikely to ramp up construction until those are cleared away and demand for new homes picks up. The number of unsold new homes on the market fell to 206,000, the lowest since August 1968. At the current sales pace, it would take about 8.6 months to exhaust that supply. The industry is suffering the repercussions of a massive building boom, in which many homes were sold to speculators. They then resold the homes, often to borrowers who took out risky loans and then defaulted. Those unsustainable boom times aren't coming back. Economists at Bank of AmericaMerrill Lynch predict that spending on building and remodeling homes will decline in the July-September quarter and actually subtract 0.7 percentage points from overall economic activity. Home construction is up 25 percent from the bottom in April 2009, it is still 74 percent below the peak in January 2006.

Separate from inheritances you might leave in your estate, you're also allowed to make gifts o f up to $13,000 per year per person to an unlimi ted number of people before potentially triggering the federal gift tax.

By PALLAVI GOGOI APBusiness WriterNEWYORK President B arack Obama's $30 billion s mall community business l ending program faces one b ig challenge: many of the c ommunity banks and busin esses it's supposed to help d on't want it. The lending program is p art of a bill that passed the H ouse of Representatives o n Thursday and now awaits t he president's signature. T he legislation contains a m ix of tax cuts and credits a imed at helping small busin esses. The centerpiece of t he bill is an effort to make b illions of dollars available t o community banks for l oans to small businesses. It seems like a simple e ffort to unclog a credit p ipeline that has been b locked since the financial m eltdown two years ago. B ut interviews with seven c ommunity bankers, as well a s small business owners, s how a reluctance to particip ate. "People in my constituenc y can't get credit, and this w ill get money out to small b usinesses, who are the e ngine of job creation for t his country," said R epublican Sen. George L eMieux of Florida, who c o-authored the amendment t hat created the lending prog ram. Bank executives say their c ustomers don't want loans, e ven at low interest rates, b ecause the sluggish econom y has chilled expansion p lans. Some say the federal m oney isn't worth it b ecause they fear it will c ome with too much regulat ory oversight. "We have taken a strateg ic decision not to have our p rimary regulator, the gove rnment, also be a partner in o ur bank," said William C hase Jr., CEO of Triumph B ank in Memphis. Chase said the bank a lready has enough capital t o meet the paltry demand f or loans. "Our business c ustomers are mired in u ncertainty and are reluct ant to invest in their busin esses," Chase said. Ninety-one percent of s mall business owners surv eyed in August by the N ational Federation of I ndependent Business ( NFIB) said all their credit n eeds were met. Only 4 perc ent cited a lack of financi ng as their top business p roblem. Plans for capital s pending were at a 35-year l ow. Jack Rajala just laughs w hen asked if he wants to t ake out a loan today. He's i n a fight to save his famil y's lumber business that h as been buffeted by the r ecession and housing meltd own. "I've seen many ups and downs; this is unquestionably the toughest," said the 71-year-old Rajala, the third-generation owner of Rajala Companies of Deer River, Minn. Since 2008, his company closed two factories and halved the number of employees to less than 100 as orders plummeted for windows, floors and door frames. Annual revenue is down 50 percent since 2008 to $5 million, and the company is losing money. Rajala is symbolic of the challenges faced by Obama's small business lending initiative. The $30 billion fund will be run by the Treasury Department, and money will be awarded to banks deemed strong by regulators. Banks that have less than $10 billion in assets are eligible. "It will provide incentives to invest and create jobs for 4 million small businesses," Obama said at a news conference Sept. 10. "It will more than double the amount some small business owners can borrow to grow their companies." Obama has to bridge the gulf between money that's available and the needs of businesses. The NFIB survey found businesses don't intend to borrow until they have more customers. Community banks will have to pay an annual dividend of 5 percent to the U.S. Treasury. However, when banks increase their lending to small businesses, their dividend rate declines on a sliding scale. So, if a bank increases its small-business lending portfolio by 2.5 percent, the dividend payment goes down to 4 percent and so on, said Paul Merski, chief economist at the Independent Community Bankers of America, the lobbying group for small banks. The dividend payment increases to 7 percent if banks don't lend to small businesses. "The crucial questions facing business owners are does it make sense to make an investment right now, and will it generate positive returns?" Josh Lerner, professor of finance and entrepreneurial management at Harvard Business School. Noah Wilcox, CEO of Grand Rapids State Bank, with two branches in Minnesota, said he already has more capital at his $250 million bank than he can lend out. "Many of our clients, business owners, put their projects on ice in 2008 because their job number one is to see their company through to the other side of this economic crisis," said Wilcox. And then there's concerns that the government money will have strings attached. The fears stem from what happened under TARP, the Troubled Asset Relief Fund, formed at the height of the financial meltdown to pump money into banks. Banks that accepted TARPmoney had to later cut dividends to shareholders and limit compensation to top executives. They were also penalized for early repayment. In this new legislation, the government is taking steps to avoid the tarnish that accompanied TARP. The key part of this effort: Banks can return the money without penalty if rules governing the small business loans change. But Chase, the bank CEO in Memphis, isn't convinced. "The rules can be changed any time," said Chase. have to pay a gift tax, however. You are allowed to bestow a total of $1 million in gifts during your lifetime above and beyond the annual $13,000 excluded amounts before the gift tax kicks in, which for most of us means never. Also not counted toward the $1 million lifetime exclusion are: Gifts to your spouse Direct payments you make for someone else's tuition or medical expenses Charitable contributions Gifts to qualified political organizations, such as political parties, election campaign committees and political action committees (PACs). Note that to qualify for the $13,000 annual exclusion, your gifts must be of "present interest" that is, there are no restrictions on the recipient being able to use the cash or property immediately; otherwise, they count toward the $1 million lifetime exclusion. Rules for gift and estate taxes are complex, so read IRS Publication 950 at www.irs.gov for more details. Adding further complexity, the gift tax rate for 2010 was reduced to 35 percent from 45 percent in 2009. But Congress could well raise it in 2011. You'd be wise to consult a financial planning professional. If you don't have one, the Financial Planning Association (www.fpaforfinancialplanning.org) is a good place to start your search. Another way parents, grandparents and others can share their resources is by contributing to a 529 Qualified State Tuition Plan to fund children's education. Contributions up to the $13,000 annual limit ($26,000/couple) will not trigger the gift tax. Alternatively, you can jumpstart the account by making a one-time contribution of up to $65,000 ($130,000/couple), as long as you don't make any other gifts to that beneficiary for five years. There are two types of 529 Plans: Prepaid tuition plans, where you prepay and lockin future tuition at rates currently charged by in-state colleges. College savings plans, where you contribute to an account whose interest earnings grow tax-free until withdrawn to pay for eligib le expenses at any college or university. To learn more about 529 Plans including tax implica tions, brokerage fees, inves tment risk and the potential impact on needs-based fina ncial aid, read the guides at FinAid (www.finaid.org/sav ings/529plans.phtml), the Securities and Exchange Commission (www.sec.gov/investor/pub s/ intro529.htm) and Chapter 9 of IRS Publication 970. It goes without saying th at before making such gifts, make sure you're on track t o fund your own retirement, have adequate health insurance, can pay off your mor tgage and are otherwise deb tfree. You wouldn't want to deplete your resources and then become a financial bu rden on others. Jason Alderman directs Visa's financial education programs.

OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH By MARTIN CRUTSINGER APEconomics WriterWASHINGTON U.S. compan ies invested last month in compute rs, communications equipment and m achinery, boosting capital goods o rders for the third time in four m onths. The 4.1 percent increase to capit al goods in August signaled a r ebound in business spending after o rders fell 5.3 percent in July. It a lso suggests manufacturing, which h as helped drive economic growth s ince the recession ended in June 2 009, is still a bright spot in a weak r ecovery. The gains in capital goods orders, a long with a jump in business conf idence in Germany, helped send s tocks soaring. The Dow Jones industrial average surged more than 170 points in morning trading. The overall demand for durable goods fell 1.3 percent in August, the Commerce Department said Friday. But that was pulled down by a significant drop in orders for aircraft. When excluding the volatile transportation sector, orders rose 2 percent the best showing in five months. In a separate report, Commerce said that sales of new homes were unchanged from a month earlier at a seasonally adjusted annual sales pace of 288,000. The sales pace was the second-worst on records dating back to 1963, with the pace in May being the worst. Homes sales in August were down 29 percent from the same month a year earlier. Normally the building industry powers economic recoveries. Each new home built creates, on average, the equivalent of three jobs for a year and generates about $90,000 in taxes, according to the National Association of Home Builders. But housing has been at the center of this downturn and shows no signs of recovering quickly. The manufacturing sector has expanded for 13 straight months, as measured by the Institute for Supply Management. Capital goods, which excludes transportation and defense goods, are seen as a good proxy for business and economists watch it closely. Business spending on equipment and software has been growing at a 20 percent annual rate over the past three quarters. Economists had worried that July's decline in spending on capital goods was a sign that the sector was losing strength. August's figures suggest manufacturing activity is growing, but economists remain concerned about its sustainability. "Though downshifting a tad, business capital spending remains one of the few consistent bright spots on the economic landscape," said Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets. Orders for machinery rose 3.9 percent in August after tumbling 9.6 percent in July. Demand for computers and related products was up 12 percent. Orders for communications equipment rose 9.2 perce nt last month. Orders for primary me tals rose 2.4 percent. Durable goods are items expect ed to last at least three years, such as refrigerators, automobiles an d washing machines. The overall decline in Augu st was the largest since a 2.6 perce nt decrease in August 2009 and t he third overall decline in four month s. Demand for transportation goo ds fell 10.3 percent last month, aft er having been up 11.6 percent in Jul y. The swing reflected a 40.2 perce nt plunge in orders for commercial a irplanes, a volatile category whi ch had surged 69 percent in Jul y. Boeing Co. saw its orders climb to 103 planes in July and then drop to just seven planes in August. BUSINESS Business spending on capital goods rises in August

By CARLAK. JOHNSON APMedical WriterCHICAGO The nation's n ew health care law turned 6 m onths old Thursday and s tarts delivering protections a nd dollars-and-cents benef its that Americans can grasp. B ut it won't affect all cons umers the same way, which m ay cause confusion. Q: Did everyone's health i nsurance change on T hursday? A: No. It depends on when y our health insurance plan y ear starts. Many of the new r equirements begin with plan y ears starting on or after S ept. 23. But if your plan y ear starts Jan. 1, as many do, t hat's when the changes start. "Grandfathered" plans, t hose that existed before the l aw was enacted March 23 a nd which remain essentially u nchanged, must meet only s ome of the requirements. N ew plans and those with s ignificant changes in benef its or out-of-pocket costs m ust comply with even more c hanges in the law. Q: How do I know how m y health plan fits in all t his? A: If you get insurance t hrough work, ask your e mployer about any changes. If you buy insurance yourself, call your insurance company. Q: What are some of the new benefits? A: Free preventive care, for one. Some people will no longer have to pay copays, coinsurance or meet their deductibles for preventive care that's backed up by the best scientific evidence. That includes flu vaccines, mammograms and even diet counseling for adults at-risk of chronic disease. Q: Are there exceptions? A: Free preventive care isn't required of existing health plans that haven't changed significantly, those "grandfathered" plans we mentioned earlier. New plans, and those that change substantially on or after Sept. 23, must provide this benefit. Q: What otherchanges started Sept. 23? A: If you go to an emergency room outside your plan's network, you won't get charged extra. Patients will be able to designate a pediatrician or an ob-gyn as their primary care doctor, avoiding the need for referrals that are required by some plans. Q: I've heard lifetime limits are being eliminated. What does that mean? A: Millions of Americans have insurance that sets a cap on what their insurance will pay to cover their medical costs over a lifetime. The caps have left very sick patients with medical bills topping $1 million or $2 million high and dry. These lifetime limits will be eliminated for plans issued or renewed on or after Sept. 23. Those who have maxed out because of the caps but remain eligible for coverage must be reinstated on the first day of the plan year that begins on or after Sept. 23. Q: What about annual limits? A: Plans issued or renewed on or after Sept. 23 can't have annual limits lower than $750,000. Annual limits will be eliminated entirely by 2014. Q: Are there exceptions? A: Employers and insurance companies can apply for waivers for so-called "minimed" plans that offer limited benefits. The intent of the waivers is to allow these lowcost plans to exist so that people don't lose their health coverage when premiums go up. Q: Any changes that affect parents? A: Insurers can no longer deny coverage to children with pre-existing conditions. Also, parents can keep their adult children on their health plans until age 26. Q: Is it true that some insurers will no longersell child-only policies in some states? A: Companies in some states have said the new requirement to insure children with pre-existing conditions will lead to unpredictable costs. Their decision to stop selling such policies won't affect existing plans. Most children are covered under family insurance plans. The trade group America's Health Insurance Plans estimates about 8 percent of all plans sold on the individual market that cover one person are for people under age 18. Q: Are there otherconsumerprotections? A: The law bars insurers from canceling policies retroactively when a person gets very sick and runs up high bills. Insurers still will be able to rescind policies in cases of fraud and intentional misrepresentation. But they can't cut you off when you need coverage most for a capricious reason. Q: Why Sept. 23? A: That's six months after President Barack Obama signed the law. Many prov isions were scheduled to sta rt six months after enactment Q: Are these chang es likely to raise health insu rance premiums? A: The Obama administr ation says the new benef its will raise premiums by n o more than 1 to 2 percen t. Benefit consulting compani es say the impact will be in t he single digits, but may va ry from plan to plan.

Health care law kicks into second gear; does it help me? By ALAN FRAM Associated Press WriterWASHINGTON If anyo ne is scorned as much as D emocrats these days, it's R epublicans the party that m ay recapture the House and p erhaps the Senate in N ovember's elections. Yet Democrats trying to e xploit the GOP's unpopularit y in hopes of hanging onto c ontrol of Congress face a p roblem: People who dislike D emocrats seem ready to vote i n greater numbers than those w ith little use for R epublicans. In an Associated Press-GfK P oll this month, 60 percent d isapprove of the job congress ional Democrats are doing y et 68 percent frown on how R epublicans are performing. W hile 59 percent are unhappy w ith how Democrats are hand ling the economy, 64 percent a re upset by the GOP's work o n the country's top issue. J ust over half have unfavora ble views of each party. Most say President Barack O bama isn't cooperating e nough on the economy, yet e ven more accuse R epublicans of the same t hing. Former President G eorge W. Bush and former A laska Gov. Sarah Palin t he only two Republicans the A P-GfK Poll tested are b oth viewed negatively by m ore than half in the survey, w orse than Obama's marks. A nd people overwhelmingly f ault Bush more than Obama f or the recession. Emile Wery, 66, a military r etiree in Pahoa, Hawaii, rated b oth parties unfavorably in t he poll. He says Democrats a ren't doing enough to create j obs and Republicans aren't b eing constructive. "They're not doing anything to mitigate the problems we have, because it's in their best interests to make Democrats look bad," Wery said of the GOP. Hoping to burnish their image, House Republicans unfurled a campaign document Thursday proposing tax and spending cuts and other broad suggestions for reviving the economy. Democrats have been on the offensive, too, warning that a GOP-run Congress would return the country to the days of government shutdowns and attempts to privatize Social Security. Despite the GOP's weak report card, registered voters divide evenly over which party's congressional candidate they support. That expands to a slight Republican edge among likely voters, reflecting a deeper interest that GOPsupporters express in the Nov. 2 elections. The explanation, according to one political scientist who has studied voters'behavior: Most people don't view elections as a choice between two competing futures, as Democrats hope they will. Instead, Stanford University professor Morris Fiorina said they tend to focus on the present which today means their deep discontent over the job Obama and the Democratic-led Congress have done to rescue the economy. "People are saying, We don't like what we have, we're going to throw them out and we're going to trust that they're going to read the signals right and do something different,'" Fiorina said. Reflecting that discontent, 54 percent who strongly dislike Democrats in the AP-GfK Poll express intense interest in the election, compared with just 40 percent of those with very negative views of Republicans. Extreme interest in the campaign is expressed by nearly 6 in 10 saying their vote in November will signal opposition to Obama, but by only about 4 in 10 who say their vote will show support for him. Overall, 49 percent of those supporting their Republican congressional candidate are very interested in the election, compared with 39 percent of those backing the Democrat in their local race. Still, the public's generally dim view of Republicans gives Democrats some hope of blunting what could be big GOPElection Day gains. That optimism has been buttressed by some candidates Republicans have chosen, such as Delaware Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell, who faces allegations of misusing campaign funds and has espoused conservative social views in a traditionally moderate state. "As Republicans take the spotlight, voters become more focused on what they don't like about the GOP," said Democratic pollster Geoffrey Garin. Republicans say that won't work because midterm elections are usually about the party in power. "It is awfully hard to change the subject," said GOP pollster Glen Bolger. "And right now the subject is big picture things like the economy and jobs, taxes and spending, the health care bill" and big government.

By TAMARALUSH Associated Press WriterST. PETERSBURG A multibillion-dollar effort to restore Florida's Everglades has produced slow progress that is improving but likely to be spread unevenly across the vital wetlands, a congressionally mandated report said Thursday. A276-page document by the National Research Council said the pace of restoration has improved over the last two years. "However, the importance of several challenges related to water quantity and quality have become clear, highlighting the difficulty in achieving restoration goals for all ecosystem components in all portions of the Everglades," the report said. Approved by Congress in 2000, the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, or CERP, was originally estimated to take 30 years and cost about $7.8 billion a tab that has risen due to rising costs. The intent is to help restore some natural water flow after decades of diversions for development and agriculture, which have shrunk the Everglades to half its historical 4 million acres. In August, a historic effort to restore the Everglades was scaled back. The state had planned to pay $1.75 billion to buy all of U.S. Sugar Corp.'s 180,000 acres. Amodified contract between the state and U.S. Sugar called for an initial land purchase of 26,791 acres for about $197.4 million, a fraction of the deal announced by Gov. Charlie Crist in 2008. Under the revised deal, the state would still maintain the option to purchase the remainder of the plan. Kirk Fordham, the CEO of the Everglades Foundation, said Thursday's report underscores the importance of acquiring U.S. Sugar Corp. lands to address water quality. "It's no secret that Florida's water quality problems have been choking the life blood out of the Everglades for some time now." wrote Fordham, in a statement. "In addition to Florida's recent legal developments on Everglades water quality issues, this report should emphasize the need for the state to move forward aggressively on curtailing water pollution in the Everglades. At the same time, the report documents progress made on current Everglades restoration projects and should provide us with additional proof to convince lawmakers that their support for funding restoration is making headway." The report listed several areas where the restoration effort has made progress, including the ongoing construction of a 1-mile bridge under the Tamiami Trail to improve water flow. Also, water levels rose in 13,000 acres of the Picayune Strand in Southwest Florida. But the report also said that conditions may worsen in some parts of the Everglades in order to achieve success in other areas. "At the heart of Everglades restoration is the goal of "getting the water right" by re-establishing the quality, quantity, timing, flow, an d distribution of water to su pport the biological characte ristics that defined the Flori da Everglades before the co nstruction of canals and le vees," the report sai d. "Increasing the amount of water stored in t he Everglades is a major nea rterm priority for t he Restoration Plan. Howeve r, the reduced area and wat er storage capacity of t he ecosystem mean that restor ation benefits will be distri buted unevenly across t he Everglades landscape. Near ly all Everglades restoratio n projects carry trade-offs." Mimi Drew, secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protectio n, and Carol Ann Wehle, exec utive director of the Sou th Florida Water Manageme nt District, said they agre ed with the overall report. The Everglades have be en dying for decades from t he intrusion of farms and deve lopment, cut by dikes, dam s and canals, effectively drai ning much of the swamp an d polluting it with fertilize rs and urban runoff. The sta te and federal government s' efforts to restore the wetlan ds have been stymied for yea rs by funding shortfalls, leg al challenges and political bic kering. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 26, 2010Page 7B AVON PARK 452-5800 € SEBRING 382-3363 LAKE PLACID 465-1530Its more than just carpet The cleaning of the second piece must be of equal or lesser value to the first service price.Sectional sofas may not be separated.

"People are kind of looki ng for style everywhere n ow," says Samantha T horpe, senior home design e ditor for Better Homes and G ardens magazine. "They w ant to make their (work) p lace look more personal a nd pretty." Ideas include applying i mages to surprising surfaces a porcelain vase, a lamps hade or inside a clear glass j ar. Today's digital photograp hy makes it possible. "Alot of us spend so m uch time in our offices. We s hould try to incorporate the p eople we love into our s paces," says Rachael Liska, s enior editor at Fresh Home m agazine. The key is to decorate a w orkspace for attractiveness w ithout distractions. "It's kind of this whole d e-cluttering feeling," T horpe says. "De-clutter y our photos and de-clutter y our work space. It makes y our space feel more organi zed, and this may help you o ut." Better Homes and G ardens'photo-displaying i deas for the home often can t ranslate to the office. T horpe suggests painting or d ecoupaging a simple desk o rganizer, adding a few sentimental words, such as "Worth a thousand words," with stencils or scrapbook letters, and grouping matted photos on top of that. If the photo mattes are the same color, it lends consistency thus elegance to the collection. Displaying only black and white photos helps, too, creating "that classic feel people like," Thorpe says. Another idea from Thorpe: Ring a small can or jar with colorful paper topped with family images; embellish with scrapbook letters or stickers. And jazz up frames by tweaking what's inside: Thorpe suggests incorporating scrapbooking skills and ephemera with family members'faces in perfect circles cut with a large-sized hole punch. Alternate family images with punched-out circles of scrapbook paper and embellishments in a grid format for a 3-D effect. "It works because it's still really simple," Thorpe says. "Doing a grid like this one you give yourself a good structure. It's like a recipe." Saving the easiest Thorpe tip for last: She suggests tucking computer-printed photos again, preferably in black and white inside W W o o r r k k s s p p a a c c e e A A r r t t : : Family photos get promoted APPhotos/Meredith Corporation These images provided by Meredith Corporation which appear in the May 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens shows photos displayed inside clear jars, displayed on a desk and displayed on an oversized letter N.

The dense foliage engulfed us as we trekked along in the woods. Though the intention of our s on, daughter-in-law, my husb and and me was to be quiet a s we entered this pristine s anctuary, we quickly e ngaged in chatter until our s on's "Hush" reminded us. So much would have r emained hidden from view h ad we been talking and w alking without regard. Our e ars caught sounds that w ould have been missed had s ilence not prevailed. Annoyance rippled through u s when others boisterously j oined us on the trail. We w elcomed the enfolding stilln ess when they moved on. We live in a noisy world. It s eems we're never disconn ected. How often are you on t he phone when a call waiti ng buzz interrupts the call y ou're presently on? I used to t hink that was rude. Then it w as included in our service a nd we easily fell into the s ame habit. We've gone to basic home service without call waiting.I like it better.Whomever I am speaking with gets priority attention, just as the person who heard the busy signal will when he calls back. There is Someone else to whom we need to give priority treatment and listen attentively with both ears and our heart. God longs to speak to us; but, unless we deliberately hush the other voices clamoring for our attention, we may miss the most important voice of all. Hearing his voice often starts by purposefully developing a quiet time devoted to God alone.In the silence as you read the Bible (God's word) and pray, thoughts and understanding from Scripture will nestle more deeply into your consciousness. What Jesus told his disciples in John 16: 13 & 14, NKJV, is true for us today "When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you." Keep your ears tuned in to God throughout the day. He will often speak through other believers to confirm the truth he brought to you earlier. When we finished our hike that day and came out of the woods into the meadow, our son quickly asked, "Did you hear all the different sounds of nature when we were quiet?" He was right. Nature's symphony couldn't be missed. Don't miss the still, small voice of God that will create a symphony in your soul.

Research done by a number of objective folks, most notably Roy Baumeister at Florida State University, has clearly shown that high self-esteem is closely associated with anti-social inclinations. Unfortunately, it's taken more than a decade for the research in question to bridge the gap between academia and popular culture. At this writing, two generations of parents were persuaded to devote themselves to creating child-rearing environments that were rich in praise and reward but lacking in reality, elevating their children to idol status in the process. Thankfully, I am a member of the last generation of American kids who were not allowed to possess high selfesteem. My mother and later her second husband did all they could to repress my Inner Brat, for which I am most grateful. (I did not, however, appreciate their efforts at the time.) When I had an outburst of high selfesteem, one of them would tell me I was "acting too big for my britches" and needed to size myself to the psychic garment in question before they were forced to lend me a literal hand. Then there were those occasions when, without reprimand, one or the other of them would say, "It would be good for you to always remember that no matter what you accomplish in this world, you are really just a little fish in a big pond." It's very helpful for me to remind myself of this on a regular basis. Everyone in my generation heard these very healthy things from their parents. I estimate that there are less than 10 parents in America who say these psychologically incorrect things today. Today's typical parent seems to think his/her child is the only fish in the pond worth noticing, which is really too bad for his/her child. It's bad for all of us, actually, because the research also finds that the higher a person's self-regard, the lower his regard for others. (It is also notewor thy that high selfesteem puts the individual at high risk for bouts of severe depression. ) People with high self-esteem want t o be paid attention t o and served. They believe in their entitlement. On th e other hand, folks with high regard f or others pay attentio n to others and look for opportunities t o serve them. It is unarguable that culture is best served, preserved, and advanced by folks who fit into the latter category. Entitlements weak en, and a culture-wide entitlement mentality weakens the entire culture. Along these lines, every single manager, employer, and supervisor with whom I've talked in the last decade or so has told me that today's young college graduates, by and large, are not looking f or work; rather, they are looking for benefits packages (i.e. entitlements). They can't handle criticism, I'm told. They are loathe to do more than "the minimum," yet they expect promotions The list of high selfesteem symptoms goes on and on. This is corrosion. I t threatens America's future. Raising a child who possesses high other-regard sim ply requires that parents do what our great-grandparent s did. They put their marriag es first, not their kids. They gave their children all that they truly needed and very little of what they simply wanted. They assigned daily chores from age 3 on. They expected their children to always do their best, in whatever setting. Their bed s were for adults only. They rarely helped their kids wit h their homework. They did not serve them individualized dinners. F amily came first, not afte rschool activities. And so on This parenting paradigm is as workable today as it was when I was a child. In fact, a small number (but I sense it is slowly growing) of parents have made the conscious decisio n to create this retro-revolution in their families. Surel y, they are salt of the earth.

By DAVID FISCHER Associated Press Writer MIAMI From "Flipper" to "Miami Vice," from "The Yearling" to "Bad Boys II," Florida has a long history in film and television. But companies have been increasingly looking elsewhere over the past decade, drawn by states that offer generous incentive programs. Florida is now ready to compete with its own tax credit program that both business leaders and public officials believe will help the state rebuild one of its legacy industries. Approved by the Florida Legislature this past spring, the new program began July 1. It provides $242 million in transferable tax credits over the next five years, with $53.5 million in credits available in the first year. Production companies will be eligible to receive tax credits for 20 percent of the money they spend in Florida. The program offers an extra 5 percent for family friendly projects and another 5 percent for projects filmed during hurricane season. The most any project can receive is $8 million in credits. Besides movies and TVshows, other projects eligible for the program include documentaries, digital media projects, commercials and music videos. "It's truly game-changing for the state of Florida," Film Florida President Jennifer Pennypacker said. "The scary thing is not just what we were losing. To me, the scary thing is what we weren't even considered for. We weren't even getting the call and having the chance to lose it." The move is already starting to pay dividends. On Monday, officials announced the creation of a new $30 million full-service TVand film production studio in Sarasota designed to lure more projects to Florida and nurture local production talent. Studio CEO Ken Sanborn said the new state program enabled him to put the project "on the front burner." "The film incentive is critical," he said at a news conference. "It's really going to make a huge difference for Florida." The Florida film industry exploded in the 1990s, with studios bringing to the state major productions like the first "Bad Boys," 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," 'The Specialist," 'There's Something About Mary," and "Wild Things." Central Florida even stood in for the Louisiana bayou in "The Waterboy" and African jungles in "Instinct." But shortly after the start of the new millennium, other states began paying studios as much as 30 percent back in tax credits for what they spent in the states. Florida began its own program in 2004, but it was a cash incentive with relativity little funding. The first year's total allocation was about $2.45 million. The program peeked in 2007 with $25 million and has decreased every year since. Graham Winick, the city of Miami Beach's film coordinator and a past president of Film Florida, said the state's cash incentive was a victim of the slumping economy. "In the meantime, our nearby competitors in Georgia and Louisiana were destroying us," Winick said. "They were decimating our work base, and they were taking projects that were scripted for us." The pilot episode of "The Glades," a crime drama that began airing this summer, was filmed largely in Georgia, before Florida's incentive program was approved. Production has since moved to Broward County. Parts of "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay" supposedly took place in South Beach, but the film was shot almost entirely in Louisiana. The key to growing and expanding Florida's incentive, from a political perspective, was to switch from a straight rebate to a tax credit program, Winick said. The tax credits are basically like gift cards that can only be spent at the Florida Department of Revenue. While a production company with no Florida tax liability could take a cash rebate and spend it anywhere, tax credits can never leave the state, making them much more popular with lawmakers, Winick said. Companies that don't pay taxes in Florida can sell their credits to companies that do for a slightly reduced rate, but those credits still remain in Florida. State Sen. Mike Haridopolos, who helped push the program through the Legislature this past spring, said he considers the program a winner, because the state is only giving up tax revenue that wouldn't have come to the state without the incentive. "The only way they'll get these tax credits is if they actually create new work," Haridopolos said. According to state records, the credits allocated this year are already estimated to bring in nearly $419 million to the Florida economy, creating more than 38,000 jobs. Not only does film production create jobs in the industry, but it benefits local businesses, like hotels, restaurants and suppliers, Haridopolos said. In the long run, it can even attract more tourism to locations featured in a television show or movie. Florida's tax credit program still isn't as strong as some other states, which offer more credits with fewer restrictions. But Fox Television Studios Vice President Bob Lemchen said Florida's program is strong enough to at least put it even with other states, if not ahead. Ayear-round shooting climate, skilled crew, equipment vendors and other infrastructure tip the scales in Florida's favor, Lemchen said. "It's a really good rebate," Lemchen said. "I think it will make Florida more competitive and bring shows to Florida that might have otherwise gone to other states." Fox Television Studios produces "Burn Notice," which airs on the USAnetwork, and "The Glades," which airs on A&E. Both shows film in South Florida. Andrew Kosove, cofounder and co-CEO of Alco n Entertainment, said he prob ably wouldn't have been ab le to film his next movie in Florida without the tax cred it. Alcon is scheduled to sho ot "Dolphin Tale" based o n the true story of a dolph in who lost her tail after an injury and had it replac ed with a prosthetic in t he Tampa Bay area this fall f or 10 weeks. "In order for Florida to compete effectively again st Georgia or Louisiana or oth er states that have these pr ograms, they need to have th is program in place, and th ey need to stick with it for t he long term," Kosove said. If they do, Florida will becom e a major location for film pr oduction for years." Supporters of the progra m are confident lawmakers w ill extend and expand it on ce they see the benefits. T he $53.5 million in credits f or the first year were all but sp oken for the first day the pr ogram officially began in Jul y. "We'll have the analytic al data that we need to go ba ck and say this is how much it works," Pennypacker sai d. "This is how much we p ut into the economy of Flori da and how many Floridians w e put back to work. We need to grow this. We're grateful f or what we have, but we want to see it bigger over the next s ix to 10 years." State Rep. Steph en Precourt, who also support ed the program's legislatio n, said he's encouraged by t he immediate interest in the pr ogram and the fact that pro jects are already under way. "There's a lot of wo rk going on today in Florida th at would be somewhere else if we didn't have this program ," Precourt said. "So just by virtue of pas sing the bill, there are man y people employed in Flori da today that otherwise wou ld not be." www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 26, 2010Page 3C Established 19311600 US 27 South € Avon Park Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home4001 Sebring Parkway Sebring, 385-0125 111 E.

Locally owned and operated by Whitmire Air Conditioning, Inc.Spencer Whitmire Owner863-453-3019DATELINE: Highlands CountyIs the government going to chargeŽ you $1,500 if you dont replace your old,inefficient,air conditioner? Some experts have predicted that the cost of electricity will skyrocket. And since residential air conditioning is one of the biggest users of electricity,the new Stimulus Package contains a substancial incentive for upgrading your old air conditioner to a new high efficiency model. USE IT OR LOSE IT? It seems as though you are going to payŽfor a new,more efficient,air conditioner whether you get one or not. If you replace your old system you might be eligible for up to $1,500 in tax benefits. And,if you wait too long,you may lose the tax credit,and pay a much higher utility bill. In 2010,a new law has made most existing air conditioners effectively obsolete! This law bans the manufacturing of air conditioners using the refrigerant R-22. Therefore,the cost of the refrigerant has begun to skyrocket,which means your old air conditioner becomes very expensive to repair. YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF When you add it up,you owe it to yourself to find out the facts. See how much tax relief you can get. See how much you can lower your electric usage. See how worry-free you can be from breakdowns and repairs. FREE AND NO-OBLIGATION Call now and receive a free,no obligation,energy survey,installation estimate,and government tax credit information.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Stunning l andscapes, colorful bromelia ds, and stately birds justly d escribe the collection of artw ork by Barbara Wade feat ured in the South Florida C ommunity College Theatre f or the Performing Arts, in t he upper level gallery, H ighlands Campus. The artw ork will be on display for t he public through Nov. 30. T he upper level gallery is d esignated as a community a rtist gallery and showcases e xceptional artists from our s urrounding area. Wade's collection is a c ombination of watercolor, a crylic, and oil paintings. W ade considers herself a multimedia and water m edia" specialist and usually c oncentrates in painting in w atercolor and acrylic. She is i ntrigued with color and the s hapes of things while painti ng. According to Cathy F utral, SFCC professor, art a nd close friend, Wade has an impressionistic style of way o f working, in which she l ikes to capture the essence a nd the feeling of the space o r the forms." The subject matter of her a rtwork varies according to w here she is at the time. W hen asked what she liked to f ocus on during painting, W ade replied, "I love to paint s ubjects that are appealing to o thers and that ultimately p lease me." Her gallery exhib ition showcases some of her F lorida paintings, emphasizi ng on her observations of the F lorida Heartland. Highlands H ammock State Park and the J .N. "Ding" Darling National W ildlife Refuge inspired all o f the paintings in this showc ase. She decided to display t hese paintings together to a ppeal and interest the people o f our area. Wade has been interested i n art her entire life, but did n ot really focus entirely on p ainting until the early 1 990s. She has been dividing h er time between North C arolina and Florida for the p ast 20 years, but calls North C arolina home. Over the past 2 5 years, Wade has enjoyed t eaching workshops and c lasses about art. She also l oves to paint with other c lose friends who learn and h elp each other in artistic e ndeavors. Her artwork can a lso be seen in galleries t hroughout North Carolina. S he is involved with art in H ighlands County; is a memb er of the Highlands Art L eague in Sebring, and has w ork featured in the Sebring P ublic Library and the Y ellow House.

E ach elementary school in H ighlands County will be installing a pollinator garden on their school g rounds this year and this works hop is designed to prepare them to t ake care of it using environmental p ractices. Patricia Carter from Lake P lacid, Lake Country and Fred W ild, Laura Carter from Avon and P ark, Heidi Stivender from Cracker T rail, Mollie Stephens from Sun 'N L ake and Gail Melendy from M emorial and Woodlawn element ary schools are all teachers of the H ARTprogram. They came up w ith the idea for the pollinator gard ens because they are studying F lorida habitats this year. The idea i s to create an actual mini-habitat i n each school so that the kids can learn about and observe the wildlife that is attracted to these areas. The curriculum the children are learning is all about "Backyard Habitats." They will study five main ecosystems found in Florida. The sandhill/scrub, coastal strand, dry prairie, hardwood hammock and wetlands will be the subject matter. They will learn environmentally friendly practices with hands-on creation and design of these gardens. The goal is to establish environmental stewardship and playing out roles as responsible citizens toward our natural resources. Apartnership has formed between the Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District, Highlands County Extension Office/IFAS, Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department and the HARTprogram teachers along with many volunteers that will teach these young minds about the pollination process. Each school will be supplied with a composter and rain barrel for their garden. Stations will include composting, vermicomposting, planting a seed, rain barrels, water cycle, butterflies, bees, Florida Friendly plants and watersheds and how to protect them. This interactive experience should not only be educational for the students, but lots of fun. Arecent survey showed that most Americans don't really understand the pollination process and how important our pollinators are. Many folks relate pollen with allergies and dangerous animals such as bees. But for every bite out of three, the food consumed came from the efforts of a bee, butterfly, bat, bird or some other type of pollinator. In fact, animals provide pollination services for over threequarters of the staple crop plants that feed human kind and for 90 percent of all flowering plants in the world. (Global Pesticide Campaigner) According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), we are facing an "impending pollination crisis," in which both wild and managed pollinators are disappearing at alarming rates owing to habitat loss, pesticide poisoning, diseases and pests. Studies reveal that more than 100,000 different animal species help in the pollination of over 250,000 types of wild flowering plants. Bees, wasps, moths, butterflies, flies, beetles, hummingbirds, bats, birds, various mammals and even some types of lizards are all essential in the pollination proces s. It is important to pass this important information on to today's youth who must learn to apprecia te the benefits that a diversity of pol linators provides. Thanks to the many volunteers and staff who are working hard to make sure the workshop will be th e best that it can be. Earth Team members, Master Gardeners, and pollinator specialists are making the kits for the composters and ra in barrels, manning booths and sharing ideas with staff. These events simply wouldn't be possible without their help. The Supervisors from the Highlands Soil and Wate r Conservation District have generously donated funds to purchase a ll the materials for the composters i n an effort to supply each school with one. The Highlands County Extension Service/Master Gardeners are supplying drums an d all necessary supplies for the rain barrels. It is encouraging to know that s o many are working toward the com mon goal of making sure our futu re generation is well equipped to pro tect their environment.

B orn in Zuckerberg's Harvard dorm r oom, the site has in six years g rown to more than 500 million u sers worldwide and a dollar worth i n the billions. The film, which opens in theaters O ct. 1, is pulsating with prestige, o f-the-moment hipness and glowing e arly reviews. Much of the excitem ent is over the sheer filmmaking p rowess of the movie, the classical s torytelling and the whip-smart s cript all 162 pages of it, dist illed into a dialogue-rich two-hour f ilm. But it's also a fascinating, pugnac ious rendering of a younger genera tion by two filmmakers not of it. "The movie is sort of built to p ick a fight," says Sorkin. "Not w ith Facebook, I mean it's built not t o have unanimous consensus about w hat just happened." "The Social Network" has a lready found controversy for its p ortrayal of Zuckerberg as an arrog ant, back-stabbing hacker with, of a ll things, social awkwardness. The f ilm details the fallout of Z uckerberg's friend and original F acebook CFO Eduardo Saverin ( Andrew Garfield, the "SpiderM an" heir apparent) and the claims o f college classmates Cameron and T yler Winklevoss (twins played w ith digital help by Armie Hammer a nd Josh Pence) and Divya N arendra (Max Minghella). Both S averin and the Winklevoss clan h ave sued Zuckerberg and F acebook, claiming a hand in its i nvention, winning undisclosed sett lements. Sorkin's screenplay was adapted f rom Ben Mezrich's book "The Accidental Billionaires." After reading Mezrich's early treatment, Sorkin ("The West Wing," 'AFew Good Men") began his script while Mezrich was writing his book, and even finished his screenplay before the book was released. Approached by producer Scott Rudin, Fincher ("Se7en," 'Fight Club") came aboard but with the insistence that the film not be cycled through development and numerous revisions, but rather expedited to keep its timeliness. "It felt like it was talking about something that was immediate," says Fincher. "It used to be that to make an invention that touched as many lives as Facebook has, you had to have a wind tunnel, you had to have an assembly line, you had to have a work force. And now all you need is two cases of Red Bull and a DSL." Sorkin makes no bones about it: He's not a fan of the Internet. He says that in innocuous wall posts like "Had a girls night tonight. Split five deserts. Better hit the gym tomorrow!" he hears someone aping Ally McBeal or Carrie Bradshaw projecting themselves as a fictional type. Social networking, he says, has done the opposite of its intention and "pushed us further apart." "When I signed up for this, I had heard of Facebook, but that's it," says the 49-year-old Sorkin. "Frankly, I had heard of Facebook the way I've heard of a carburetor. I can't pop the hood of my car, point to it and tell you what it does. My attraction to this were the themes that are as old as storytelling itself: of loyalty and betrayal, friends and enemies, power, class, jealousy." Particularly in scenes set at Harvard, "The Social Network" is filled with intelligent teenagers who believe steadfastly in their perspectives. Their young lives driven, sexual, messy spill out on the Internet. "Probably kids today waste as much time on Twittering and instant-messaging as I did on Gilligan's Island,'" says Fincher, 48. "At least people are going to have very dexterous thumbs when they ask the age-old question: What are you doin'?'" Fincher, with tongue in cheek, calls the film "the Citizen Kane'of John Hughes movies" a kind of 21st century morality tale. Where his previous two films "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," 'Zodiac" dealt with the passage of time, "The Social Network" hums to an accelerated modern pace, set to Trent Reznor's synthesizer-heavy score. Zuckerberg is depicted as a time-condensed Charles Foster Kane, successful but regretful by his mid-20s. The 26-year-old Eisenberg ("The Squid and the Whale," 'Adventureland") has perhaps a less cynical view of the Internet. Not long after Zuckerberg was inventing Facebook, Eisenberg launched a much smaller and much less ambitious wordplay site called OneUpMe.com. His cousin and Facebook employee Eric Fisher now runs it; ironically, users need a Facebook account to play. In preparation to play Zuckerberg a relative blank slate considering the little known about him Eisenberg watched everything he could watch of the young CEO. After reading that Zuckerberg had been a fencer, he took fencing lessons. He listened to speeches by Zuckerberg on an iPod on his way to the set, and grew to have a "gre at affection" for him. "I had the unique position on se t of having to defend my character for six months," says Eisenberg. "Even though the character occasionally acts in ways that are hurtf ul to the other characters, I was in th e unique position of never seeing him in any light but a completely justified one. It's impossible to play a role any other way." The portrayal is both harsh and empathetic, treating Zuckerberg as a visionary with little patience for condescending adults. Facebook, which didn't cooperate with the film, said in a statement that "The movie might be a sign that Facebook has become meaningful to people, even if the movie is fiction." "You have to answer to its factu ality," says Sorkin. "I understand Facebook pushing back against the movie. That's both predictable and understandable. They're not doing anything wrong; it's what I'd do, too. First of all, Facebook's beef isn't with the movie, it's with the people who sued them and the test imony they gave. If I were Mark Zuckerberg, if I were Facebook, I would want this story only told from my point of view, which is what they wanted. But we're tellin g it from their point of view and the point of view of Eduardo Saverin and the point of view of Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss." The Oscar drumbeat has already started for "The Social Network," with many prognosticators expecting considerable awards attention for the film. Fincher, Sorkin and Eisenberg are all doing their best t o ignore such talk for now; they kno w how fast and fickle online convers ation can be. "It's scaring the heck out of me, I won't lie to you," says Sorkin of th e swelling interest. "The rollout is enormous, the reaction has been extremely positive which can only mean one thing: The backlash will begin any moment now."

By KATE ROWLAND Special to the News-SunORLANDO Friday's 417 victory over the Lake Nona L ions gave Sebring its first D istrict 9-3Awin of the year, b ut it's still a bit early for the B lue Streaks (4-0 overall, 10 ) to begin planning another t rip to Orlando for the state c hampionship game. Regardless, that's e xactly what the undef eated Streaks are u sing for a motivating f actor, although seve nth-year head coach J ared Hamlin reminde d his squad that the r oad to the Citrus B owl won't be easy. "Anybody who plays footb all has the goal of reaching t he state championship," said H amlin. "Our ultimate goal is t he same. But we've got to t ake it one step at a time and g et better each game. "We play some tough t eams over the next several w eeks and will have to play to the best of our abilities. We've got to keep taking care of business." The Blue Streaks (7-3, 4-2 district 2009-10) play in a tough district. Lake Wales and Winter Haven always field topnotch, playoff-expecting teams and Sebring has not made the playoffs in six years. Still, Sebring has reason to be optimistic this year. Led by a potent offense and a nearly impenetrable defense, the Streaks have dominated all four of its opponents this fall, building a 4-0 record for the first time since 1996. Lake Nona has yet to win a game this season, but the second-year Lions played some tough opponents in the preseason, including Class 6A Harmony and University high schools, and Class 4A Oak Ridge. Lions'quarterback Kevin Sousa, one of the most heavily recruited quarterbacks in the country, made a verbal commitment to Division I University of Michigan last spring. The 6-foot-4 senior became an overnight sensation after an impressive showing his junior year. "Lake Nona has a lot of athletes on its team," Hamlin said. "Their quarterback is phenomenal and he has some solid support. But they made some mistakes [Friday] and our defense played well. "Mistakes can kill you even though they've got a heck of a quarterback." Sebring has been strong defensively throughout all of its games this year, and held to Sousa to just 20 yards rushing and 8-of-17 passing for 126 yards with four interceptions. Clarence Counts nabbed an By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLABELLE The A.J. Gayle project, progressing slowly over the first few weeks of the season, was in action full force Friday night as Lake Placid road the formidable freshman to a 20-9 win over the LaBelle Cowboys. "We didn't want to rush him into it, this being his first year, we were sort of easing him in and building on his carries," head coach Jason Holden said of his young, 6foot-1, 215-pound workhorse. "He's shown he can handle it and he's getting the ball." He would, in fact, carry the ball 26 times this night, rushing for 146 yards and two touchdowns and that includes a 26-yard run that was called back on a penalty. The first score came quickly, despite the host Cowboys receiving the opening kick. That's because, on the fir st play from scrimmage b y LaBelle, a jarring hit in t he backfield knocked the ba ll loose and Lake Placid reco vered on the 17. Three Gayle carries lat er and the Dragons were on t he board with a 6-0 lead at t he 10:47 mark of t he opening quarter. Though winle ss through three game s, the Cowboys h ad shown they cou ld move the ball and p ut points on the boar d, and it seemed like w e might soon have a high-sco ring affair when quarterba ck Jordan Taylor took a keep er for 43 yards on the openin g play of their next possessio n.

High School F ootball Highlands takes three for the road By JIM BROCKMAN Sarasota Herald-Tribune CorrespondentSARASOTA The Avon P ark Red Devils spoiled C ardinal Mooney's Class 2BD istrict 5 opener Friday night w ith a come-fromb ehind 19-13 victor y at Austin S mithers Stadium. Both teams had t o cope with a 35m inute lightning d elay that pushed t he game past three h ours in length. Officials cleared the field a nd stands with five seconds r emaining in a scoreless first q uarter. Play was stopped at 7:59 p .m. and didn't resume until 8 :34 p.m. Rain, however was n ot a factor. Only light sprinkles fell throughout the game. When play resumed the Cougars (2-2, 0-1) got on the scoreboard with the help of a blocked punt by linebacker Ben Walsh. Walsh also scooped up the ball and returned it to the Avon Park 16-yard line. From there, it was a 16-yard touchdown pass from Alex Nugent to Cody Tope to give the Cougars a 6-0 lead with 8:39 left in the first half. The Cougars looked like they would go in at halftime with the lead, but with less than a minute to go Cardinal Mooney fumbled a handoff. Alonzo Robertson recovered for the Red Devils at the Cardinal Mooney 23. With just 37 seconds left in the second quarter, quarterback Ryan Dick tossed a 20yard scoring pass to Robertson. Garrett Taylor converted the extra point to give Avon Park a 7-6 halftime lead. The Red Devils began to establish their ground game in the second half. With less than a minute gone in the third quarter, Dick sprinted 55 yards for a touchdown off a bootleg to increase the margin to 13-6. The Red Devils put together one more scoring drive. They covered 78 yards, all on the ground, with Drew Rushing going the final fo ur yards for a commanding 19 -6 lead.

Below: Leah Mitchell sents a powerful spike across the net as Desiree Leedy, #10, and Rikki Albritton look on T hursday night. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt was a busy night of volleyball Thursday for area teams, with varying degrees of success. The battle for the second seed in District 9-3Aheated up locally as Avon Park swept past Frostproof and Lake Placid took a threegame sweep at Tenoroc. "(Frostproof) has greatly improved and we were taken by surprise a little bit," Lady Devil head coach Stephanie Devlin said of her squads closely contested 25-19, 2519, 25-22 wins. "But we had some really strong efforts. Zakia Hart had some unbelievable kills, at times it appeared she was flying. And Heather Bass has mastered the straight-down-the-line' serve and has been very successful at pulling the setter of her rhythm." The Lady Dragons had a strong effort as well, pulling off 25-16, 25-23 and 25-17 wins on the road against the Lady Titans. "The girls played excellent," head coach Linette Wells said. "They kept their focus, communication and teamwork throughout the entire match. Shelbi Bertram was 20-for-20 on her serves and had five aces." Alana Neilander lead the offensive attack with eight kills, to go along with a teamleading 16 digs. Alysha Curtis had three blocks and while Kylie Weber and Rhonwen Gavagni split the setter duties on the night, Weber had the edge with 13 assists. The wins put both Avon Park and Lake Placid at 5-2 in district play, tied for second behind 6-0 McKeel, with one of the Dragons losses coming against the Devils. The two teams will battle it out, head-to-head, Tuesday in Lake Placid. Elsewhere, Heartland Christian (5-2, 3-1) grabbed a non-district win with a sweep over Life Christian by 25-9, 25-13 and 25-9 scores. The Lady Crusaders pulled off the win without the tutelage of their head coach, Shannon Cleveland, who w as home with a fever. Heartland heads to Lakeland to take on toug h district foe Victory Tuesd ay and welcome All Saints for a match at home Thursday. The action wasn't quite so positive a few blocks away as the Lady Blue Streaks fell in three straight to visitin g Winter Haven. After stretching the Lad y Blue Devils to five games, o n the road, in the district ope ner, Sebring would ha ve seemed primed to take t he win at home. "We just didn't come to play," head coach Venes sa Sinness said. "They run a quick offense and we we re playing one step behind a ll night. They also just pick ed apart our serve receive. It was not one bad thing, it w as everything." Now 3-4 in district pla y, the Streaks have som e ground to make up if th ey want to make a climb in t he district seedings over the se cond half of the schedule. That schedule will ha ve them on the road for the ne xt two weeks, starting wi th games at Lake Wal es Tuesday and at Liber ty Thursday. South Florida Communi ty College saw the tough start to their season continue with a sweep at the hands of S t. Petersburg to fall to 2-11, b ut will keep busy in an effort to pull things together and tu rn it around. The Lady Panthers vis it Polk State College Tuesda y, meet State College of Flori da at home Thursday and th en host the SFCC Tourname nt over the weekend.

i nterception on a Sousa pass o n the first play of the game. Devin Clarke's intercept ion on the Sebring 13-yard l ine ended a Lake Nona t hreat in the second quarter. Anthony Powell picked o ff a Sousa pass and Tevin W oodhouse grabbed the S treaks'final interception l ate in the fourth quarter. Third-year Sebring quart erback Matt Grubb has p lenty of talent as well. He and Sousa are friends, h aving played together duri ng several camps, and it w as fun playing against his p al, Grubb said. "Kevin and I get along v ery well," Grubb said. "I r eally like him. He's a good k id and a good player. "Making state has been o ur goal all along. It's our u ltimate goal. We won't be s atisfied until we reach that g oal. All the glory of this t eam goes to God. This is his t eam." It looked as if the game w ould have to be reschedu led after lightning activated a Florida High School A thletic Association rule a l ightning strike within six m iles results in a 30-minute d elay. By the time the Lake N ona athletic director ruled t he game officially back on a t 8:45, nearly 90 minutes h ad elapsed. Lake Nona's H omecoming festivities duri ng halftime delayed the g ame further. The Blue Streak offense g ot down to business right a way. Powell's interception led to a 6-yard Devin Clarke touchdown run with 6:07 left in the first half. Clarke's interception deep in Sebring territory led to a Grubb touchdown pass to Zack Bullock in the end zone with 33.7 seconds remaining in the second quarter, giving the Blue Streaks a 14-0 lead at halftime. Sebring's third touchdown came midway through the third quarter. Clarke's leaping 38-yard reception upped the score to 21-0, and rose to 28-0 after Grubb and Clarke teamed up for a 77-yard catch-and-run touchdown. Lake Nona was able to avoid the shutout when Sousa completed a 28-yard touchdown pass to Dmitri Fontana with 35 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Leading rusher Damion Thompson sat out the game with an injury but Sebring's offense didn't miss a beat. Trini Sutton led the team with 145 yards rushing, Devaris Faulk had 103, Clarke had five carries for 42 yards and Michael Weston added 29 on three carries. Clarke scored three touchdowns. Grubb finished 12-of-17 for 222 yards, with three touchdown passes and no interceptions. Clarke had six receptions for 169 yards and Howard Williams had five catches for 44. Kicker Donavon White connected on five extra points. With a bye on Friday, the Blue Streaks will take on top-tier district rival Lake Wales at home on Friday, Oct. 8.

Florida High School Football ScoresFriday, Sept. 24 c lock, but more trouble on a p unt led to Cardinal M ooney's second and final t ouchdown. Alow snap gave the C ougars the ball on the Avon P ark 37. Jake Falter eventually s cored on a 2-yard run, and Mario Lopez made the extra point to produce the game's final score. Cardinal Mooney attempted an onside kick but the Red Devils recovered and ran out the clock. It was the first victory of the year for Avon Park (1-3, 0-1), which had only scored 12 points in its first three games. "It feels real good to get this, it's a step in the right direction," head coach Andy Bonjokian said. "There's still a long way to go, but the guys played hard and played all the way through. We stressed all week about not turning the ball over and this is what happens when you don't have turnovers. I'm just real happy and proud of the guys." The Devils look to continue their winning ways Friday with a matchup at long-time rival Hardee. Continued from 1D Avon Park hangs on to ball, grabs first win But the Dragon defense s tiffened, holding for a net n o gain on the next three p lays before Nick Peragine s tepped in front of a Taylor p ass and returned it out to m idfield. The early, quick scoring d rive, however, wasn't a s ign of things to come as the D ragons next few drives s talled. "We kept putting ours elves in bad situations," H olden said. "We'd be movi ng the ball and then have t hings called back on penalt ies." And then in his one misp lay of the night, Gayle was s tripped of the ball early in t he second quarter at the L aBelle 38. From there, the Cowboys c ompiled a nine-play drive t hat got them as far as the L ake Placid 15 before David A ntunez kicked a 33-yard f ield goal to halve the lead at 6 -3. "We stressed all week a bout turnovers," Holden s aid. "They're only points of t he first half came off our o ne turnover." But that score was quickly a nswered as the Dragons f ound some of that quicks trike magic again. From their own 35, Gayle r umbled for 12 yards and K irk Veley connected with P eragine on a 20-yard gain, w ith a facemask penalty p ushing it to the Cowboy 27. Halfback Ernie Edwards t hen found an opening and h eaded for the goal line. Meeting two defenders i nside the five, Edwards p owered through for the t ouchdown with Gayle then blasting through the line for the two-point conversion and a 14-3 lead at the half. Though their two possessions of the third quarter didn't net any points, the Dragons were using Gayle to churn out yards and eat into the clock, keeping the first 12 minutes out of the break scoreless. But a Cowboy drive toward the end of the period bridged into the fourth before a Christopher Garcia three-yard plunge cut the lead to 14-9 at the 9:42 mark. Lake Placid's next drive went backward but the defense answered as Nevada Weaver knocked Taylor for a loss before Ryan Blount pounced on a fumble to get the ball back. From here it was all Gayle, rushing seven straight plays for 46 yards to get it to the 10. Veley then took a keeper around end for six yards and after an offsides moved it to the two, Gayle powered in untouched with 2:20 left to play, with the final score of the night. LaBelle would try to answer with one last-ditch, desperation drive that got the to the Dragon 22, but on a lofted pass toward the end zone, Peragine nabbed his second pick of the night to seal it. "You can't ask for more than the effort these guys gave tonight," Holden said. "You could really see the confidence growing throughout the week in practice and that's what we need." Originally slated to be going into a bye week, the Dragons picked up a game, with a chance to keep the momentum going, as they will welcome Agape Christian, a Class 1B playoff team last year, to Roger Scarborough Memorial Stadium Friday.
