By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Where does a ghost go swimming? In the Dead Sea. Spooky jokes mixed with scary stories and eerie local history made for fun as Highlands Little Theatre volunteers took more than 120 men, women and children for walks through after dark Sebring Friday and Saturday nights. Harder Hall opened to guests in January of 1928. It was named for its builders, Lewis Harder and Vincent Hall. The building, looking like a Spanish-style birthday cake with pink icing, has changed hands many times over the years. Every owner died under strange circumstances, many of them right at the hotel. During World War II, a young newlywed arrived to visit her husband who was training at Hendricks Field. Learning he had died in an accident, the bride threw herself off the 108-foot tower to her death. To this day, driving down U.S. 27, some say strange lights can sometimes be seen inside the abandoned building. Legend has it is the Widow of the Tower still searching for her lost love. The Kenilworth Lodge, built in 1916 by Sebring founder George Sebring, is another hotel said to be ethereally active. George Parker, its manager in the 1950s, died there. His apparition has been seen on and off ever since. Guests in their rooms, especially on the second floor, have heard loud voices, screaming and even a beating drum, but in each case surrounding rooms were empty and the halls quiet. Ghosts have been spotted in hallways and bathrooms and once at the foot of a bed. Clock radios keep going off in guest rooms, and phones ring without anyone on the other end of the line.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comAVON PARK Anewly formed non-profit organization has stepped up in the Highlands County community in hopes of filling the gap between families with disabled children and adults. Racing 4 Rights was formed in March in memory of Troy Bostick, who died in February of 2009. Bostick's fight and struggles with autism, cerebral palsy and other disabilities did not keep him from being a loving and caring individual who continued to love life until his untimely death at the age of 26. The organization has created fundraising nights at various restaurants in Sebring for the remainder of the year. On every first Thursday from 6-9 p.m., 10 percent of purchases at Brewster's goes to the fund. The second and fourth Thursdays, 10 percent of the funds from Dairy Queen between 6-9 p.m. go to the organization and every third Thursday of the month between 5-9 p.m., Chili's donates 10 percent to the organization. "It's not a hard thing to do, families go out to eat on Friday nights, well just go Thursday and you are making a difference," said Kristy Haislip. Bostick's sister-in-law, Kristy Haislip, is secretary of the Racing 4 Rights organiza tion and was empowered by her brother's life and death. Before Bostick's passing, Haislip had begin to notice tremendous cutbacks in government funding for her broth er. "There have been cutbacks on everything. The disabled have been hit the hardest," said Haislip. The Adult Day Training allows individuals to have daily interaction and learning experiences with everyday lif e.

The report states that around 6 p.m. on Thursday, Avon Park police were dispatched to Walmart on a complaint of an infant left alone in a truck. The child belonged to Vera Pamela Kerklin, 21, who was tracked down in the store after the child was removed from the blue 2003 Ford pick-up. Officer Justin Norris stated that he observed the infant girl in the vehicle crying, and said she was covered in extreme perspiration on her legs, arms, head, face and neck when he arrived on the scene. Norris noted that all the doors to the vehicle were locked and that the windows were rolled up tight.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Thursday's night Heartland Idol contests was again packed with hundreds of audience members for the week's countrythemed competition. On top of he country melodies by the talented vocalists, audience members got plenty of cute kids in costumes to ooh and aah over. Throughout the second round of the adult semifinals, children of all ages stepped up on the stage to show off their scary, cute and original Halloween costumes. Alarge crowd of lady bugs and witches, super heroes and Disney characters paraded through the audience to get their few minutes in the spotlight. Costumes were judged and each of the winners within the age group were rewarded with gift certificates to local bookstores and other businesses. The field was cut once again as three contestants were eliminated, leaving only nine adult singers left in the competition to sing one more week. The first male performance of the night was by Donnie Shaffer, who delivered a high energy rendition of Willie Nelson's "Whiskey Sour." Amanda Mercer wowed judge Vickie Jones with her props and great effort in her performance. "Vocally you were great, you missed a few words but I love the effort you put into your performance," Jones said. Marrero performed Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" and carried props including a briefcase, shower cap and blanket for her "early morning rise". Though each of the first six performers all entertained the crowd, it wasn't until Chasity Kincaid, 18, of Lake Wales, did the crowd seem vocally pleased. Kincaid's strong vocals created screams, whistles, and cheers from start to finish. Judge Larry Moore called Kincaid's performance "stank" which is a good thing and proclaimed her best of the night. Kincaid was one of nine performers to advance to next week's competition. The remaining eight singers are Shaffer, Lindsey Shears, Mercer, Cam Martin, Marrero, Ashley Elder, Manny Concepcion and Samantha Berry. The next show is Thursday starting at 6 p.m., when the field will be trimmed again and the Senior Idol competition will be held. The finals are set for Saturday, Nov. 13, on the Circle in Sebring.

Sebring's Section 14-7 states: "No person shall fire off a gun or pistol within the city." Florida's Chapter 790.15 makes it a misdemeanor of the first degree to knowingly discharge a firearm in any public place. It qualifies that, however, with the following paragraph: "This section does not apply to a person lawfully defending life or property or performing official duties requiring the discharge of a firearm or to a person discharging a firearm on public roads or properties expressly approved for hunting by the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or Division of Forestry." In his letter to City Administrator Scott Noethlich, Swaine wrote, "In researching case law on local firearms regulations, the Courts have held that Ch. 790 Fla. Stat., preempts ordinances such as ours, so I do not believe the city can adopt any alternative ordinance to regulate firearms." There will be two readings of the proposed ordinance to delete Section 14-7 from the city ordinances. The first hearing is Monday. The second, and final, reading is currently scheduled for Nov. 16.

This time Wednesday m orning we'll be able to take a deep breath and move on. Keeping our eye on this p rize, we urge all registered v oters who haven't voted yet t o remain engaged for a few m ore hours, finish this elect ion cycle by getting out on T uesday and making your v oice heard. After all, there is nothing m ore comforting than the rest o f the righteous the righte ous in this case being those o f us who care enough to take p art in the democratic p rocess. This is an important elect ion, even though the White H ouse isn't on the line. Here in Highlands County w e all have to pick someone t o represent us in the U.S. S enate and House of R epresentatives; choose an e ntirely new state cabinet governor, attorney general, chief financial officer and commissioner of agricultural and consumer services; hire three county commissioners; say yea or nay to 11 judges; decide whether the superintendent of schools should be appointed by the school board; and approve or reject the school board's request for us to continue paying 0.25 mills in school tax to fund critical operating needs. In Avon Park, residents have to select a mayor and one council member. In Lake Placid, residents have to decide whether to create a position of town manager. And then there are the constitutional amendments we have to decide whether or not to continue to provide public funding for candidates who agree to spending limits; whether or not to provide additional homestead exemptions to military members serving overseas; whether or not citizens should have a voice over specific proposed developments; whether or not to change how congressional and legislative districts are created and mapped; and whether or not to ease existing classroom size limitations. There is an added bonus question in the form of a straw vote: Should the American constitution be amended to require a balanced budget? As you can see, there is an issue of interest for almost everyone, and candidates of all stripes who have worked hard to get your attention. Asimple truth the more voters take part in hiring new officials, the more attention elected officials will pay to the voters. Don't be concerned if you aren't ready to vote on every issue or race vote for those you understand or feel about strongly. Under voting does not disqualify you. Finally, remember this if we are to have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, the people will have to get up and out. For information call the supervisor of elections at 402-6655. It is all over but the voting and the ball is in our court now H ere we finally are, just hours away from the peace and quiet that always follows a hotly cont ested election. I totally get that election season is a time of temporary insanity. Negativity abounds on the airwaves as candidates deplore attack ads while running them. People get caught up in the rhetoric and find themselves getting quite emotional. I'm 52. I've lived through some elections. I understand this. But some of the insanity I've been seeing is way, way over the top. And I find myself scratching my head and wondering what is going on. For example, comedian at least I'm told she's a comedian Joy Behar went off on Nevada senate candidate Sharron Angle. Behar called Angle a word that can be used to describe a female dog and said that Angle was going to Hell. Forgive me if I fail to see the humor in these statements. I understand that some people don't have a problem with foul language. I do. Calling someone a name like that, what does it add to the debate? I'm even more offended that Ms. Behar believes she can decide who is going to Hell. I hate to break it to her, but God is the only one who gets to decide that. I don't. She doesn't. No matter what she thinks of Ms. Angle's politics, this kind of comment is way out of line. Then there is the situation involving a Rand Paul supporter who was caught on video stepping on the head the head! of a Moveon.org activist. According to a news report on the incident, the activist attempted to approach Rand Paul prior to a debate. Several people pulled her to the ground while a man identified as Tim Profitt put his foot on her head. Profitt worked for the Paul campaign until this happened. The man has apologized, but has actually said that he feels that the activist needs to apologize to him. Excuse me? You drag a woman to the ground, step on her, and she owes you a n apology? Maybe in Opposi te World, where a lot of peopl e seem to be living these day s. Isn't it bad enough that people like me who are trying to make good decisions of how to cast our vote hav e to deal with nasty campaign commercials? That we are getting headaches reading over the amendments trying to figure out what they are really saying? (And on a side note, do we really have to have amendments written in legalese? Can't they be in normal, everyday English? Here's the thing: from now on, if I don't understand what your amendment is saying, I am automatically voting against it. You've been warned.) I think people who are going nutty this political season need to stop, take a deep breath, and get a grip on themselves. Behar and Profitt are just two example s of individuals who need to do just that. If this election cycle has you going bug-eyed, calling people names or otherwise acting totally nutty, you might also need to get a grip. This is an election. W e will survive it, no matter what the outcome is. Once you've calmed down, get your hands on a sample ballot, look it over carefully (do your best to figure out the amendments) and plan to vote. It is your chance to make a differenc e. Don't let it go to waste. Tak e a few minutes Tuesday (unless you voted early, in which case you are off the hook) and vote. No matter how crazy an election cycle gets, voting is always the sane thing to do. Laura Ware is a Sebring re sident.

Help my TVis infested with politicians. John Payne SebringSeptic tanks a good place for elected officialsEditor: The first letter on the Editorial & Opinion page of Wednesday, 1027-10, got our attention immediately. We wanted to know the name of the elected official who introduced this legislation. I got the phone book and started at the top. Charlie Crist, Jeff Kottkamp, J. D. Alexander, Denise Grimsley and Baxter Troutman. I talked to all of their secretaries (except I left a message for B. Troutman) and only one of the secretaries, in Lake Wales for J.D. Alexander, knew the way the story went. The secretaries for Crist and Kottkamp took a message ... repeal Bill 550 ... and the others took the same message but assured me the repeal was in the works. It seems the Environmental Preservation at Conservation Committee, chaired by Senator Constantine (R), who is under term limits and is now out, voted to add the amendment to Bill 550. If everyone now wants to repeal it how in the world did it get through in the first place!? And good ol' "..I'm lookin'out for you.." Charlie signed it into law. Now we wonder if the elected officials in D.C. are the only ones who don't know what they are passing beforehand or if our state elected just don't give a hoot until it comes to light. With all the things going wrong in the country and this state their big issue was the cleanliness of our septic tank? We are quite positive that everyone who has a septic tank is quickly aware when there is something amiss with it. Joe Heigl Avon ParkThe Church vs. Socialist GovernmentEditor: Do you want independence or dependence? 1. One of the ministries of the church has always been to help those in need. Our government has robbed us of this with unemployment checks and taxing us to give money away to others, even in other countries. 2. God has been the motivation for giving. He works through people in the church and local agencies. Many programs are already in place such as Salvation Army and Red Cross and many others. 3. When government takes from our people and gives to the needy, they think, "Great, there is more where that came from. I won't have to work I will just work the system and relax." They learn to lean. It robs people from being workers and inventors and starting businesses and being independent. Americans become dependent as we seem to have no choice. Foreigners have taken our jobs and we have been forced out of our homes and onto government dole. 4. Taxes next year will be overwhelming. Those who are fortunate to work will pay heavily for healthcare for Muslims, Amish and noncitizens who live here. We are seriously in trouble. Be sure to vote for Conservatives Nov. 2. We do have a choice there. 5. There is no accountability in this socialist government agenda to the people. 6. Our God-given rights are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I see nothing ahead except servitude if we continue with this socialist government. Pray for America. Ruth Ditzell SebringRemember our veterans Nov. 11Editor: In 1924, the VFWregistered the name Buddy Poppy with the U.S. Patent Office. It represents the blood shed by American military service members and reminds us of their sacrifices. The Buddy Poppy is assembled by disabled and needy veterans in VAhospitals. Proceeds from Buddy Poppy Drives are used for aid, relief and comfort of need y veterans and members of the Arm ed Forces and their dependents. Poem written in 1915 by John McCrue: "In Flanders Fields the poppies blow "Between the crosses, row on row "That mark our place; and in th e sky "The larks, still bravely singing fly "Scarce heard amid the guns below. "We are the Dead, Short days ago "We lived, felt dawn, saw sunse t glow, "Loved and were loved and now we lie "In Flanders Fields. "Take up our quarrel with the foe: "To you from failing hands we throw "The torch; be yours to hold it high. "If you break faith with us who die "We shall not sleep, though pop pies grow "In Flanders Fields Please support the organizations who show their support by promo ting the Buddy Poppy Drive.

Tanglewood Veterans donate to Veterans Council Special to the News-SunSEBRING As dry season approaches, the Florida Division of Forestry is gearing up for an active wildfire year. In preparation, the Division of Forestry has increased its fire mitigation and fuel reduction efforts in Highlands County. "If we are not fighting a wildfire, we are trying to prevent one from happening", said Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Melissa Yunas from the Florida Division of Forestry. "We are burning, mowing or chopping the thick, dense vegetation in and near communities to create firebreaks and reduce the fuel loading." The Division of Forestry conducts wildfire mitigation projects to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires. Yunas said, "The vegetation can be managed to help reduce the size and potential damage of wildfires. We have been focusing our attention on the high risk communities of Sun 'N Lakes this week." Amowed fire break approximately two miles long following vacant blocks will be established by the end of next week. The mowing is accomplished using a specialized machine with a toothed, rotating drum that grinds vegetation creating a layer of mulch. Sixty acres were prescribed burned during the last week in the Sun 'N Lakes North community during the last week. Approximately 75 acres have been designated to be prescribed burned in Sun 'N Lakes South in Lake Placid depending on weather next week. Prescribed burning is a safe way to apply a natural process, ensure ecosystem health and reduce wildfire risk. Burning off the dead decomposed vegetation is an efficient way to clean the forest floor. Residents in Sun 'N Lake South may experience residual smoke but a small amount of smoke now m ay help prevent a large wildfire later. The Florida Division of Forestry is working hard to protect the communit y. Now is the time to take a careful look at your home and see what you can d o. Residents living in or near brush or wooded areas should make their hom es as safe as possible from the threat of wildfires. Homes and sheds should be surrounded by a buffer zone extendin g at least 30 feet. This area should be fr ee of highly flammable vegetation and we ll maintained. Leaves, pine needles an d twigs should be removed from roofs an d gutters. Flammable materials (woo d, vehicles and propane tanks) should n ot be stored next to the house. Anyone needing additional inform ation may contact the local Division of Forestry at 655-6407 (Highlands an d Glades counties). Visit the Web site at www.fl-dof.com.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Kay Johnson, a native Floridian, who was born in Bartow and was one of seven children, has been named the honorary chairperson of Lake Placid's Relay for Life in 2011. Johnson moved to Lake Placid in 1969. She married her husband, Dennis, who is also one of seven children, in 1970, so they recently celebrated their 40th anniversary. For six years, Johnson has worked with the Family Medical Group, and the past two years have been with Dr. Daniel Montero in the Sebring office. Serving as a certified medical assistant (CMA) for the past 15 years has provided an opportunity to help her patients, and this has been her calling in life. Johnson's journey with cancer has traveled a long and unusual route. She was diagnosed in 2004 with stage 3 breast cancer and had to undergo several cycles of chemo before she was ready for surgery. Alumpectomy was performed, along with removal of lymph nodes, followed by more chemo and radiation. It appeared that the cancer was under control, and Johnson was put on a five-year program with the drug Tamoxifen. This is where the story should reach a happy ending. However, an eye problem developed causing her to lose her vision in the left eye. It was determined that the breast cancer had metastasized, and she now had an oval shaped tumor called a chorodial mass in her eye. Fortunately, her doctor in Winter Haven had developed a treatment for eye cancer while at Harvard and was able to begin treatment quickly. At this point, the eye tumor is effectively gone, and Johnson's vision has been restored. However, her story does not end there. The cancer had also spread throughout Johnson's body to the right lower lung, the liver, several bones, etc. She continues to take treatments, and the various tumors are responding. Johnson is described by Relay officials as "a very brave lady, who continues to smile and bring hope to other cancer patients. She has been through so much, but she has the support of a loving family that includes not only her husband, but also her daughter, son, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, mother Evelyn, and father Jimmy. There are also a large number of community members that Kay considers her "heart family" folks that have passed through her life and added so much to it. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, October 31, 2010Page 7A American Golf Cart2833 Hwy 27 S. € Avon Park453-CART (2278) 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 abled individuals how to shop, give money and receive change, and other various everyday things that some disabled individuals can not do alone. "The ADThas been cut from five days a week to two or three days a week. The companion hours are being cut, personal care assistance has been cut. There are families who have to bathe and change diapers of individuals and when they aren't able to do that PCAwould help, but with the funding being cut it's just not possible," Haislip said. Transportation is becoming the biggest problem for persons with disabilities in the community. According to Haislip, a trip that is only 10 miles twice a day cost three times as much as it did a year ago. Assistance for disabled individuals not only is dwindling, but to even begin to receive assistance could take years. "Parents that have a child that is born with a disability are seeing so many difficulties. They put their child on a waiting list when they are born and hope that the child will have assistance by the time they are 18," said Haislip. The waiting list for disability assistance is at 19,000 individuals in the state of Florida according to J. Brad Haislip, brother of Bostick. The main goal behind the Racing 4 Rights organization is to raise awareness while offering help to parents with disabled children. "We want to get these parents all the right resources and turned in the right direction because it's devastating," he said. Raising funds so that the Bosticks and Haislips are able to help out families with disabled individuals in any way that they can is the other component. "We want to get the word out. There are peopl e who have been there and we'd like to help. We real ize there are severe limita tions in your funding for your loved ones, we want to help," Kristy Haislip explained. Haislip has begun writing grants in hopes of get ting funding to provide transportation, physical therapy, and other needs for the disabled. Her current grant proposal is for just over $100,000. "If we get the grant we have to match it by 10 pe rcent. So we would have t o raise $15,000. We are wil ling to work with whoever is willing to provide reduced rates and any opportunity to help," said Haislip. The organization is also hoping to hold a benefit o r gala and have a float in th e Christmas parade this yea r. "Christmas was Troy's favorite time of year. He was 26 years old, but he loved it. My mother-in-la w would love for us to be able to do that for him," Haislip said. Beverly Bostick wishes to be a part of the lives of parents with disabled chil dren and a shoulder to lea n on when needed. "I want to be there for other parents whose child is born less than perfect. It's scary an d it's devastating," she said Many things are still in the beginning stages for the organization, but the family hopes to let the community know there is a group of people happy to help and provide in any way they can. The organi zation is also holding a "Waiting List" informational meeting. Contact Sandra Bass for more information at 441-0109.

Continued from page 1A Racing 4 Rights raising money to help disabled Special to the News-SunThe combined Government Affairs C ommittees of the Heartland Association of R ealtors and the Lake Placid Board of R ealtors recently interviewed candidates for t he Districts 2, 4 and 5 county commission s eats. The committee faced tough choices in a f ield of very qualified candidates. Don Elwell was chosen for District 2. His 2 0 years of private sector business experie nce, accounting background, community i nvolvement and conservative fiscal philosop hy will prove valuable to the board as they u ndertake some very difficult decisions in the n ext several years. With declining property v alues and high unemployment in Highlands C ounty, his focus on eliminating waste, e ncouraging quality job growth, and reducing t he size of government is timely. "Don's excellent communication skills s hould help facilitate reasoned debate and c onsensus building on the board without s ome of the rancor we have recently witnessed," said Steve Fruit, chairman of the committee. For the District 4 race the committee supported the incumbent, Don Bates. Bates has been a strong supporter of the Economic Development Commission's efforts to bring high paying, quality jobs to Highlands County. With a 13.5 percent reported unemployment rate (and much higher underemployment rate in the county) there is no more important task for our elected representatives to focus on. "During his first term Don voted for budget initiatives which reduced the ad valorem millage from 9 mils to its current level of 7.1 mils. During his tenure the county budget shrank by over $20 million, and he agrees it needs to shrink more," Fruit said. Greg Harris was the choice for District 5 commissioner. Members said as a businessman here in Highlands County for many years Harris is most familiar with the struggles many taxpayers are facing. "He is a fiscal conservative, and we believe he will be a strong proponent of low taxes and limited government," Fruit said. Highlands Realtors endorse candidates By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Awide variety of elected officials, political candidates and local business people gathered at the Kenilworth Lodge Thursday night for the Economic Development Commission's Silver Anniversary Celebration and annual meeting. The commission's function, supported by public and private dollars, is to "enhance the quality of life in Highlands County through job creation, economic diversification and support for the retention and expansion of existing business and industry." Outstanding companies and business leaders are recognized by the commission at its 25th annual meeting. The Business Excellence Award rewards those companies that have operated in Highlands County at least three years, and have consistently used good practices, have expanded and are involved with the community. This year the award went to Frank and Rita Youngman and their 12-year-old business, Florida Grove Hedgers of Lake Placid and Venus. When he started, Youngman said, he worked by himself in his orange grove service business. Now he has expanded into three businesses, has more than 30 employees and is looking to hire two more. Ron Buckley, who is in charge of the Amerikan operation in Sebring, was recognized as the Manufacturer of the Year. Amerikan makes black nursery containers from recycled plastic. Despite the economy, the plant is operating at 100 percent capacity and is expanding from three machines to five. Dennis and Debra Orlos Orlos owns the local Taco Bell franchises were honored with the Community Service Award for their commitment and generosity in their support of the Miracle League of Lake Placid, the Boy Scouts, the Boys & Girls Club and Special Stars among others. Allison Megrath, president of Land Planning Solutions, addressed the audience, advocating against Amendment 4 which requires a public referendum on every amendment to a future land use plan.

New volunteer group cleaning up Sun 'n Lake Associated PressLONDON The discovery of U.S.b ound mail bombs on cargo planes in E ngland and Dubai reveals the danger p osed by air shipping, which is gove rned by a patchwork of inconsistent c ontrols that make packages a potential t hreat even to passenger jets, experts s aid Saturday. Most countries require parcels placed o n passenger flights by international s hipping companies to go through at l east one security check. Methods i nclude hand checks, sniffer dogs, X-ray m achines and high-tech devices that can f ind traces of explosives on paper or c loth swabs. But security protocols vary widely a round the world. Experts cautioned that c argo, even when loaded onto passenger p lanes, is sometimes lightly inspected or c ompletely unexamined, particularly w hen it comes from countries without well-developed aviation security systems. The fact that at least two parcels containing explosives could be placed on cargo-only flights to England and Dubai, one in a FedEx shipment from Yemen, was a dramatic example of the risks, but the dangers have been obvious for years, analysts said. Britain's Home Secretary Theresa May said the device discovered early Friday morning at England's East Midlands Airport was potentially able to explode and could have been used to bring down a plane. May said that the U.K. has banned the movement of all unaccompanied air freight originating from Yemen. France's civil aviation authority also suspended air freight from Yemen. One particular vulnerability in the system: trusted companies that regularly do business with freight shippers are allowed to ship parcels as "secure" cargo that is not automatically subjected to further checks. Even where rules are tight on paper, enforcement can be lax. AU.S. government team that visited cargo sites around the world last year found a wide range of glaring defects, said John Shingleton, managing director of Handy Shipping Guide, an industry information service. "They walked into a warehouse where supposedly secure cargo was," he said, declining to say where the site was. "Generally security is high, but if you think it's perfect you're kidding yourself." Cargo companies have long shipped on passenger airlines, for whom cargo provides extra income. Air freight generally consists of the most expensive cargo, everything from designer clothing and prescription drugs to car parts and mobile phones. Mail bomb plot shows lax cargo, parcel security Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL Last-minute leak repairs have again pushed back space shuttle Discovery's final launch, this time until Wednesday. NASAdelayed Discovery's flight to the International Space Station yet another day because more work was needed than initially thought to replace a pair of leaking pipe hookups near the shuttle's tail, NASAtest director Jeff Spaulding said Saturday. The problem cropped up earlier in the week, forcing NASAto give up on the original Monday launch attempt and aim instead for Tuesday. That one-day slip to Election Day which was announced Friday had officials in neighboring communities worried about the massive traffic jams that might result from hordes of launch spectators and residents trying to vote. Spaulding said the latest delay gives shuttle team members "a little bit more breathing room" to get to the polls. Space agency managers had been urging workers to vote early to avoid interfering wi th work. "We always want to ma ke it as uncomplicated as po ssible for our team, and be able to get them home" in between launch attempts so they can rest up, Spauldin g told reporters. "If that mo ve helps that in any way, ce rtainly that's a good thing. Spaulding said t he repairs and subsequent le ak checks are expected to be done in time for a Wednesday launch attemp t. Technicians had to repla ce two bad couplings, or attachment points, in t he helium and nitrogen g as lines. The parts are noto rious for leaking. "Right now, we look li ke we're on a good path to g et there," he said. Discovery and a crew of six will deliver a pressu rized compartment full of supplies to the space st ation. Among the equipmen t: an experimental humano id robot. Two spacewalks a re planned for the 11-day mi ssion. This will be Discovery's 39th and fin al mission. Repairs delay Discovery's final launch another day

Wachovia donates to Depot Museum When faced with overw helming debt, many peop le don't know where to t urn: Should they file for b ankruptcy, consolidate t heir debts into one loan or t ry to settle with creditors f or less than they owe? E ach approach can be f raught with difficulties and e xpense if you don't know w hat you're doing, but inact ion is probably the worst c ourse. If you're considering debt s ettlement, be aware that t he Federal Trade C ommission (FTC) recently c hanged several key rules g overning how for-profit d ebt settlement (a.k.a. "debt r elief") companies may bill f or their services and what i nformation they are r equired to disclose. Briefly, debt settlement is where you negotiate with creditors to accept less than the full amount you owe. You can conduct these negotiations yourself, but some people hire a debt settlement company to act on their behalf. There's usually a hefty fee 15 percent or more of the negotiated settlement is common. In a typical contract, you might be asked to stop making payments on unsecured debts, such as credit cards or medical bills, and instead put the money into a dedicated savings account. Once you've accrued sufficient funds, the settlement company attempts to negotiate with your creditors to accept lump-sum payments for less than owed. Although many legitimate debt settlement companies exist, the FTC found that a number of businesses were targeting consumers in financial distress by making unrealistic claims, such as promising to reduce debt by as much as 60 percent with no damage to their credit score in exchange for a large up-front fee. Unfortunately, the FTC estimates that approximately two-thirds of these consumers are unable to accumulate enough savings for a sufficient settlement offer and therefore not only forfeit the fee, but still owe their debt, plus accumulated interest and additional penalties. Effective Oct. 27, certain for-profit debt settlement, debt negotiation and credit counseling companies can no longer collect fees for their services until they have renegotiated, reduced or settled at least one outstanding debt and the client has made at least one payment under the new agreement. Other conditions of the new regulations include: They apply only to companies that market their services by telephone or take phone calls from customers responding to print, broadcast or other ads. They do not cover nonprofit firms, but do apply to companies that falsely claim nonprofit status. They don't apply to in-person only or Internetonly sales. Although settlement companies can still require you to set aside savings in a dedicated account to pay creditors (and their own fees), you retain control over the account, earn interest on its balance and may Federal government strengthens debt settlement rules Personal Finance Jason Alderman See DEBT, page 2B Special to the News-SunMAITLAND In honor of P rematurity Awareness Day on Nov. 1 7, Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q will d onate a portion of the day's sales t o the March of Dimes to help give b abies a healthy start.

Associated PressNEWYORK Big Oil is ready to go back to work in the Gulf of Mexico, even with the U.S government promising to rule the waters with a heavier hand. New regulations imposed following the BPoil spill will make drilling in the Gulf more expensive. But the region is simply too attractive for the big oil companies to ignore. Oil and gas companies like BP, Shell, Exxon and Chevron that increasingly depend on oil from offshore wells to expand their reserves know the geology of the Gulf much better than other parts of the world. Taxes and royalties for projects in U.S. waters are considered to be much lower than foreign operations, and it's much easier and cheaper to deliver the oil to the consumer. "It's one-stop shopping," said Fadel Gheit, an analyst with Oppenheimer & Co. "When you're working in the Gulf, you're sitting in the belly of the largest energyconsuming economy in the world." Chevron Corp. said Friday it already has submitted one permit application to the government to drill again in the deep water, and expects to file several more in the next few months. Exxon Mobil Corp. said earlier in the week that it's preparing to develop its Hadrian project in the Gulf, while Royal Dutch Shell said it filed a number of requests for offshore projects shortly after the moratorium was lifted earlier this month. The industry tabled projects like those after the April 20 rig explosion that killed 11 people and spewed nearly five million barrels of oil into the Gulf. The government shut down deepwater exploration, and some oil companies started to reassess their commitment to the Gulf.

The economy grew slightly f aster last summer as A mericans spent a little more but far too little to reduce t he high unemployment that i s frustrating voters. The Commerce D epartment said Friday that t he economy expanded at a 2 p ercent annual rate in the J uly-September quarter. It m arked an improvement from t he feeble 1.7 percent growth i n the April-June quarter. Consumers helped boost l ast quarter's economic g rowth with 2.6 percent g rowth in spending, slightly b etter than the 2.2 percent r ate in the second quarter. Businesses also spent more to replenish their stockpiles. That trend has provided a big lift to the economy since the recession ended. But economists note that businesses will no longer need to rebuild their stockpiles so much in coming months. So the economy won't benefit as much from such spending in the year's final three months. The same goes for government spending. Even though the federal government contributed to growth in the July-September quarter, stimulus money is drying up at a time when state and local governments are cutting spending. Consumer spending is important because it accounts for roughly 70 percent of national economic activity, and thus plays a major role in determining the vigor of the economic rebound. Last quarter's gain marked the biggest quarterly increase since a 4.1 percent gain at the end of 2006 before the recession hit. Astock-market rebound made people feel better about spending. Bargains, on everything from cars to home furnishings, also drew them out. Still, a large amount of the money spent went oversees. Spending on imported goods exceeded the money brought in from exports, and that hampered the nation's growth rate. Without more spending by consumers and businesses going forward, economists fear little downward movement in the 9.6 percent unemployment rate. "We're just muddling along," said Ken Mayland, president of ClearView Economics.

By MATTHEWPERRONE APBusiness WriterWASHINGTON D rugmaker Pfizer Inc. a nnounced Friday it would r ecall 38,000 bottles of its b lockbuster cholesterol drug L ipitor due to an unpleasant o dor, the third recall this year r elated to the problem. The New York-based drugm aker said the latest recall w as triggered by two cons umer complaints about a m usty or moldy odor on L ipitor bottles, which are m ade by an outside company i n Puerto Rico. Pfizer has recalled over 3 60,000 bottles of Lipitor in t he last three months because o f the issue. The company r ecalled 140,000 bottles in A ugust and another 191,000 e arlier this month. Friday's action affects two p roduct lots. Similar complaints have t riggered multiple recalls by c ompetitor Johnson & J ohnson in the past year. W hile patients have reported n ausea and diarrhea after u sing those products, the risk o f serious harm is remote, a ccording to a memo from the F ood and Drug A dministration. As with the J&J recalls, P fizer said the issue was c aused by trace amounts of a c hemical called 2,4,6-tribrom oanisole, which is used to t reat wooden pallets often u sed to store and ship bottles. Pfizer said its inspectors f ound the chemical in packagi ng materials and wooden pall ets at the Puerto Rican plant w hich supplies its bottles. "We have identified the s ource of the odor and we are e nacting rigorous measures to p revent odor-related issues g oing forward," the company s aid in a statement. The company warned that t here could be additional r ecalls of products previously s hipped from the plant. However, no bottles have tested for the odor since changes were made in August, according to Pfizer. "We have taken action to preserve product quality and patient trust," said company spokesman Ray Kerins. He added that any Lipitor user who encounters the odor can have their bottle replaced at the pharmacy at no charge. Lipitor is the best-selling prescription medication in the U.S., with $7.5 billion in sales last year, according to health care data firm IMS Health. Sept. 20Natasha Plumlee to J ohnnie W.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Florida C ampus Compact and The S outh Florida Community C ollege Honors Program will h ost a Day Institute on, Green Energy, Green R evolution, Green Jobs," f rom 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. F riday, Nov. 5 in the SFCC U niversity Center A uditorium, Highlands C ampus. The Day Institute will f ocus on broadening student, f aculty, and community part icipation in green servicel earning projects while prom oting awareness of the biof uels industry and other g reen jobs for Highlands C ounty. Guest speakers i nclude Dan P. Murphy, d irector, Highlands County E conomic Development C ommission, who will speak o n the economic future of H ighlands County; Dr. Kevin C ooper, director, Indian R iver State College Banner Center for Energy, who will focus on green industries, solar panels, and start-ups and technology training for small businesses; and Dr. John Alleyne, Highlands County UF/IFAS Agricultural Extension, who will speak about ongoing biofuels research and its potential for green jobs. The program is free and open to the public. The term "biofuels" covers a wide range of fuels derived from plant materials. They are increasingly important as alternative energy and fuel sources. Two years ago, students from the SFCC Honors Program began participating through their service-learning program in biofuels research run by Alleyne. The goal of this research is to develop non-food plants that can be grown commercially in Highlands County for biofuels. These non-food biofuel crops can be grown on poorer soils not suitable for food crops. This alternative form of energy is also expected to positively impact Highlands County's economy by bringing more jobs into the area. "Next year, we will break ground on the Vercipia plant that will use cellulose and another that will use sorghum and sugar cane to produce ethanol," Murphy said. "We expect the two plants to create at least 150 high-paying, high-skill jobs in Highlands County." "The need for alternative fuels became front and center when gasoline went to $4 a gallon two years ago," said Dr. Charlotte Pressler, coordinator, SFCC Honors Program. "The economy was collapsing, while the price of gasoline almost doubled." The Day Institute is sponsored by Florida Campus Compact, a membership organization of over 50 college and university presidents committed to helping students develop the values and skills of active citizenship through participation in public and community service. The institute is funded by a grant from Learn and Serve America and the Corporation for National and Community Service STEM Higher Education FY10 initiative.

The conference hosted a s et of three workshops to i nspire new learning ideas a nd strategies for early c hildhood teachers. Early childhood educator D orothy Ports presented Literary Treasures from R ecycled Materials," in w hich she demonstrated how t o make homemade child ren's books using many h ousehold and recycled i tems including newspapers, c ereal boxes, T-shirts and p illows. Ports explained how t hese different items can be d ecorated and fashioned t ogether so children can crea te their own personal books i n a variety of shapes and s izes. "Using everyday items to c reate books fosters creativit y as well as reading and w riting skills in children," P orts said. "It also helps crea te a positive self-concept in t hem when they realize that c an do something new." Hillsborough County P hysical Education teacher P eter Mirones presented Appropriate Practices in P hysical Education." He d emonstrated fun ways to a dd physical education to a t eacher's daily curriculum w hile incorporating sunshine s tate standards into each less on. Activities included teachi ng balance and coordination b y balancing bean bags on v arious parts of the body, increasing physical activity by setting up exercise stations around the classroom with a specific exercise listed for each station, and understanding personal space and boundaries by setting up small areas students must remain in while they complete an activity. Mirones also stressed the importance of physical activity for children. "Physical education classes are being phased out of our schools, but physical activities and games have been shown to reduce stress and encourage positive social interactions in children," Mirones said. "Don't be afraid to incorporate daily physical activities into your classroom. Healthy, active kids make better learners." Finally, Aline Lloyd, resource specialist for the Early Learning Coalition, presented "Rocks in My Head" which gave participants insight on how to use rocks in their curriculum. Lloyd demonstrated how rocks can be helpful tools for teaching science and math. Rocks can be dropped into a beaker of water to teach students principles of liquid displacement. Math skills can be taught by placing items on a scale and counting how many rocks are needed to balance the scale. Lloyd also demonstrated foods and everyday items that contain rocks including salt, M&Ms candies and toothpaste. "SFCC hosts the annual conference to help early child care teachers earn inservice hours and continuing education credits, and experience new teaching techniques," said Deborah Gutierrez, program specialist, SFCC Child Development and Education Program. "Our presenters come from throughout the state, and even around the country to provide new ideas and teaching techniques to our local educators." "Our main goal of the conference is to provide a better quality education to our children," said Colleen Rafatti, director, SFCC Child Development and Education Program. "Many teachers aren't able to travel long distances for training, so we provide them with the local opportunity to learn new strategies and learning activities to present to their students as well as helping them earn credits toward their credentials." For more information about the SFCC Child Development program, contact Rafatti at 784-7031.

LIVING C SECTION News-Sun Sunday, October 31, 2010Aplacewherefamilies canplaytogetheronlineFor a fun and safe place for kids, parents and even grandparents to play together online, visit buildabearville.com, the Build-A-Bear Workshop virtual world. Build-A-Bear Workshop is committed to working together with kids, parents, educators, industry experts, policymakers, and law enforcement officials to make the Internet a safer place for kids through education and awareness. The tools that are currently available at buildabearville.com for kids to learn about Internet safety include:Cyber Safety Quiz Landing page with tips and suggestions on playing safe onlineEvents throughout the year to promote safe play In 2010, Build-A-Bearville received the Inaugural StopCyberbullying Award from StopCyberbullying.org. In 2009 the site earned the WiredKids Best of the Web Award sponsored by WiredSafety.org and in 2008, Build-A-Bearville received the I-Parenting Award. FAMILYFEATURES Parents'concerns about Internet safety used to be confined to the computer. Today, kids have more access to the Internet through smart phones and gaming devices so the potential for cyberbully ing is greater than ever. Cyberbullying is when one minor uses technology as a weapon to target another young person. According to StopCyberbullying.org, elementary and middle schools report cyberbullying as the most frequent problem they face. Most people think of cyberbullying as girl to girl. Girls become the more prevalent cyberbullies in middle school, harassing other girls and boys. Cyberbullying at the elementary school level is typically boy to boy due to the higher percentage of boys who play online games as opposed to girls Twenty percent of kids in the fourth through sixth grade have reported one type of cyberbullying when playing games including:Password theftAccessing and stealing virtual itemsMean messagesWhatparentscandoParental involvement is key to preventing cyberbullying and keeping kids safe online. Marsali Hancock, president and CEO of the Internet Keep Safe Coalition (www.ikeepsafe.org), recommends the following tips for parents to keep their children safe online: Keep current with technology. You don't have to be an expert, but a little understanding goes a long way towards keeping your child safe online. Get basic technical training and learn about new products as they are released.Keep communicating with your child about what he or she is experiencing on the Internet and with technology in general. Know their lingo, and ask when you don't understand something. Work to keep communication lines open.Keep checking your child's Internet activity. Know where they go online. Let them know that you will keep checking because you want them to understand that the Internet is a public forum and never truly private.Keep participating with your child's online activities. They are the experts so you can ask them to help you. Not only will your knowledge of the digital world be strengthened so will your relationship with your children. "When we ask our kids what is going on at school they often reply not much,' but when we play online games with them they start to talk about other things going on in their lives, too it is a great way to ease into conversations that may otherwise be difficult to get started," said Mary Heston, director of the Wiredsafety's Wiredmoms program. Interne t tipsfor parents andkid s Whatkidscando"Cyberbullying starts early and lasts a lifetime," said Parry Aftab, founder and Executive Director of WiredSafety, home of StopCyberbullying.org and Wiredkids.org. "We have to teach our children good digital hygiene about password safety and following the Internet Golden Rule don't do anything online that you wouldn't do offline." Here are some other things kids can do to help prevent cyberbullying:Protect your identity and reputation by being careful not to share your name, contact information, or pictures.Realize that what is put in the digital world can stay there forever. Only post pictures that you would want your parents, peers and school to see.Create secure passwords. Passwords should be easy to remember, hard to guess. If you have to write it down, it's too hard to remember. If it's a pet's name, your middle name, your favorite sports team, etc., it's too easy to guess. Remember, a combination of numbers and letters is always best. Don't share your passwords. Don't allow kids to give out their password to others. Eighty-five percent of elementary school students and 70 percent of teens polled said they shared their password with at least one friend. That's one friend too many. Friends can be cyberbullies too, sign ing onto your account, impersonating you and possibly embarrassing you They can also change your password, locking you out of your account.

Q: My 8-year-old son is a s weet, sensitive little guy w ith a really bad temper. W hen I ask him to do somet hing like take a bath or c lean his room he often flies o ff the handle. The same t hing usually occurs when I t ry to discipline him. Tonight h e slammed his door when I s ent him to bed early for f ighting with his brother, so I removed it from the hinges, r emaining calm the whole t ime. Is this over-reacting? W hy does he have such a b ad temper? A: I don't know why he h as a bad temper (and asking w hy is not going to advance a solution), but I can tell you t hat you are most definitely n ot describing a "sweet, sens itive little guy." He sounds m ore like a self-centered litt le tyrant who is in great n eed of a significant altitude a djustment. Your reluctance t o face facts is compounded by your reluctance to put the proverbial hammer down on his outrageous behavior. Taking his door off its hinges was under-reacting, not over-reacting. Your son is suffering (and making everyone else suffer) from a bad case of Toddlerhood-inPerpetuity. It's high time he was forced to leave toddlerhood behind and grow up. Make a comprehensive list of his misbehaviors. Make it as specific as possible. Post it on the refrigerator. Suspend all of his privileges, and I mean every single one of them-after-school activities, television, video games, sleep-overs, and so on-until none of the behaviors on the list have occurred for one month straight. In other words, if he has three good weeks and then throws a tantrum, the month-he-willnever-forget starts over again the next day. His complete rehabilitation may take six months. Q: My ex-husband and I aren't friendly. Ours was his second marriage. His first marriage produced a child, but when he and his first wife divorced, he renounced all parental rights. Our son is now 16. I always hoped he'd tell our son about his first marriage, his other son, and how his alcoholism played the biggest role in our divorce, but he never has. I've had chats about the divorce with our son, but I'm wondering if I should tell him about his half-brother. I don't want my son to find out later and then me angry at me for not telling him. What are your thoughts? A: You've admitted that you and your exdon't get along. In that context, I can't help but wonder whether telling your son about his father's previous child would amount to a not-sosubtle expression of hostility on your part. I certainly don't get the impression that your son needs this information. In any case, it's not your responsibility to tell him about his father's past; it's his father's responsibility. Let it stay that way. Family psychologist John Rosemond: www.rosemond.com.

When we lived in the North, the e arly bloom of spring after long wint ers also refreshed and renewed my s pirits.But, I wasn't a good summer g irl. Between the heat and mosquit oes, I was a mess. However, when those cooler b reezes sent the summer heat and b ugs flying away, I felt free and reve led in the beauty of the spectacular d isplay of autumn leaves. It remains m y favorite season to this daythough sadly i n Florida it is brief and a little hard to find. By the time this column runs, we will have c ompleted a September road trip to Colorado w here my expectations of hikes and golden A spen are tickling my fancy as I write. That's one reason why Halloween displays h ave always failed to be inviting to me.Their g houlish darkness spills negativity over the b eauty of harvest timethat time when God h as given life to the seed and the bounty of h ard labor is rewarded to the farmer and all of u s. In God's Word we are encouraged to focus o n, choose and celebrate life. That life comes i n many forms. Look around and see the evid ence of God's hand and his abundant blessi ngs by observing nature. Listen to God's voice when he thunders f rom the heavens in a storm; roars mightily upon a rocky coastline with the waves; or echoes from the mountain tops majestically. His voice and touch are also gentle like a butterfly daring to alight upon us or a nearby flower; in a cool breeze gently blowing the shimmering Aspen leaves to flutter and sing their Creator's song.Or, look into the starry sky. Imagine the extent and depth of how creation is for us and used by God to sustain us. Throughout the season, God is working out his purposes in nature and in us. Listen to his voice in Psalm 8: 3-6, NKJV as the Psalmist stands back in awe and amazement and says, "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet."

Vibrant harvest time days Pause And Consider Jan Merop Bad tempers may lead to self-centered tyrants Living With Children John Rosemond DearAbby: My sister "Penny" and I live in different states and lead completely different lives. We have grown distant over the years my choice really. Penny isn't a bad person. She just doesn't "get" my lifestyle. I have decided to remain unmarried and childless. Ahusband and family are all Penny ever wanted, and she considers it an insult that I don't want the life she always dreamed about for herself. I would like to spend time with my sister occasionally but she has a different personality, no close friends and feels we must have a close relationship because we're sisters. Abby, I don't want to be her replacement for the friends she is unable to make. Penny complains that I never visit. But when I do, we're both miserable, tend to provoke each other and get under each other's skin. I love her, but it isn't productive for us to spend a lot of time together. I would like to have a less stressful relationship with her and my new nephew. What can I do to make this happen? Horse of a Different Color in Wyoming DearHorse of a Different Color: By being frank with your sister and telling her exactly what you have told me. You can have a less stressful relationship with her, but it will require some compromise on the part of each of you. Explain to her that you do not have it in you to provide the closeness she appears so desperate for and perhaps she will finally accept what you are willing and able to give her. It may lessen the tension between you. DearAbby: We're planning a 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my parents. My son "Mark" and his girlfriend, "Cindy," have been a couple for six years and have a 3-year-old son. They live in another town and plan to be married after Mark gets his degree. Abby, my father was never told about the birth of Mark and Cindy's child, per strict orders from my mother. Because Dad adheres to the values and morals he learned as a young man in the 1950s, Mom is afraid he would "have a stroke" if he knew. Mom refuses to allow Mark and Cindy to bring their son to the party because Dad still doesn't know. All of the other grea tgrandchildren will be there and included in the photos. This seems unfair and hear tless. What can I do? Anonymous in t he Midwe st DearAnonymous: Depriving your father of knowledge that he has a great-grandchild has not only been unfair to the chil d, but also unfair to your father. The news will not "kill" him. He made it through the 1960s, '70s and '80s, didn't he? At this point, he may be surprised, but by now nothing will shock him. What may disturb him is learning that thi s was kept from him for so long. You should insist that he be told. Your grandson is n ot a guilty secret. He deserves to know his great-grandfather while there is still time And if your mother won't tell your father, then you should do it before the party.

Presidential China is much l ike your grandmother's C hina. The China service is o rdered to mark a big occas ion or celebration like a h oliday, a wedding (or, for s ome, an inauguration). Like g randma's set, pieces are a dded as time goes by. When i t comes to the China o rdered to be used by A merican heads of state and d ignitaries, the Presidential C hina collection is both vari ed and fascinating.No new ChinaAbig surprise when it c omes to Presidential China i s that First Lady Jackie K ennedy didn't order any. S he redecorated with vigor, h ad a deep devotion to the h istory of American furnishi ngs, and knew the ins and o uts of good taste and d esign, but she ordered no n ew China during the K ennedy years! In the White House, the K ennedys used the Truman C hina with the Eisenhower s ervice plates for state dinn ers. While Jacqueline K ennedy was known to be of i mpeccable taste and had a d eep devotion for the history o f the White House, she o ften used existing China f rom the Harrison, Lincoln a nd Hayes services. Flora for Lady BirdIn 1966, Lady Bird J ohnson worked very closely w ith Tiffany and Company o n the newest China design. M rs. Johnson combined her m ain cause, the beautificat ion of the country's lands cape, with the history of P residential China. The China features the e agle motif first designed for t he Monroes along with A merican wildflower i mages. There were over f orty different wildflowers p ainted on different pieces o f China. And, she had d essert plates made featuring t he state flower of each s tate. Manufactured by C astleton China, Inc., the n ew service cost $80,028. It w ould accommodate 140 g uests which is the number o f guests the State Dining R oom currently seats. This w as the first time that a s ervice was purchased with n on-appropriated governm ent funds. The White H ouse Historical Association f unded the project. The first State Dinner of t he Reagan administration, h eld in 1981, made First L ady Nancy Reagan realize t hat there was not a comp lete set of any one pattern t hat could serve all of the g uests. Albeit necessary, p ublic criticism ensued when i t was announced that a new s ervice would be ordered f rom Lenox. Each 19 piece p lace setting featured red b anding as it was Mrs. Reagan's favorite color. The set served 220 people and cost $210,399. Clinton supervisionThe Clinton Presidential China service commemorates the 200th anniversary of the White House. First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton supervised the creation of each individual piece. The design incorporates architectural motifs found in the State Dining Room, East Room, and Diplomatic Reception Room. Breaking with tradition, it features views of the White House instead of the Presidential Seal. The 300 place settings were donated by the White House Historical Association at a cost of $240,000. Two in the Bush The Bush White House adopted a two-China policy: one a traditional Lenox giltedged formal style with a green basket-weave border for formal dinners and one set for the residence called the Magnolia Residence China Service for informal ones. Intended for casual use, the informal set cost $74,000 and referenced the oldest tree, a magnolia tree dating back to the Jackson era, on the White House lawn. The official George W. Bush State China by Lenox had a total price tag of $492,798 and consists of 320 fourteen-piece place settings. The design was inspired by a French dinner service with an eagle motif believed to have been owned by President James and Dolley Madison. Dolley Madison was said to be a fabulous hostess, so who better to model your contemporary China after than her? White House China is, like all collectibles, a sign of the times. The styles, designs and shapes of the China reflect what was in vogue throughout history of the Presidents.

Heartland Community Chorus begins rehearsals on Mondays Family FeaturesWith soccer practice, piano lessons, friends, homework, tests and more, there are countless activities that compete for time on the family calendar. With thoughtful planning, you can be sure that fun family time gets penciled in, too. Karen Deerwester, family expert and author of "The Entitlement-Free Child: Raising Confident and Responsible Kids in a Me, Mine, Now!'Culture," highlights the importance of scheduling family time. "Unite the family in the art of fun by planning weekly activities together!" Deerwester says. "When you do, you give your family the most precious gift of all time together to laugh, enjoy one another and stay connected." Family time can serve as an escape from the demands and deadlines of life. It is an opportunity to make memories together based on fun and laughter. Depending on schedules and ages, there are many ways to get your family started. Whether eating takeout or making a home-cooked dinner, bring your family together at mealtime. Sit at the table together and talk about the events of the day, the last vacation you shared or a favorite home video. Making meals an event at home creates an occasion for families to bond over everyday responsibilities. When in the car with your children, don't be drowned out by the radio or headphones. Keep the dial turned off and initiate conversations about school, friends, recent accomplishments or daily challenges. Your child will feel comfortable talking to you and will look forward to this special travel time together. Board games and puzzles are another way to bring together family members of all ages for moments of fun. The effort to spend merely 30 minutes playing games will be richly rewarded as playing board games together strengthens family relationships, sparks conversations and brings everyone together in silliness and laughter. For the word fans in the family, try Scrabble Flash, a new game that pits players against the clock to build as many three-to-five letter words as possible. Five tiles each display a letter and recognize formed words with WonderLink technology. It's perfect for a moment of fun and excitement. Another updated classic, Sorry! Spin, unites the family with a new way to pl ay the game of sweet revenge This edition features a rotating game board whi ch makes getting "Home" mo re unpredictable and fun th an ever before, and engag es players on every mov e, making it anyone's game to win. "Family Game Nig ht builds powerful family co nnections and creates a fam ily identity based on fu n, laughter, shared interes ts and individual strengths ," Deerwester says. "This is the time to te ll the kids that you really wa nt to spend time with them to simply have fun!" Make sure building a rel ationship as a family doesn 't take the backseat this scho ol year and schedule time f or your family. Your children will than k you for it.

By CALVIN WOODWARD Associated PressWASHINGTON Memo t o novice political candid ates: Know thy C onstitution. Don't tell H ispanics they look Asian. P ay special attention to what y ou say when you are in f ront of cameras. Which you a lmost always are. Expect y our chitchat to go viral. And, really, try your best t o stay out of court. Now relax. Be yourself i f you dare. This is the year of the n eophyte in politics. Antii ncumbent sentiment in gene ral and the tea party in part icular have brought fresh f aces forward, many wet b ehind the ears in the brutali ties of a modern campaign. The result: a rash of i mpolitic politics gaffes, r aw rhetoric, unsettling theor ies followed by gotchas, r ecycled mercilessly by o pponent's campaign ads, c able TVand the blogs. In Delaware, Christine O 'Donnell got tangled in the F irst Amendment, appearing u naware it separates religion a nd government. The Second A mendment caused grief for f ellow Republican Sharron A ngle in Nevada, who entert ained the notion of "Second A mendment remedies" t hat would be a call to arms if government isn't b rought to heel. Frank Caprio, Democratic c andidate for Rhode Island g overnor, did not, as has b een widely reported, tell P resident Barack Obama to s hove it after the president d eclined to endorse him. He told Obama to "really s hove it." It's been messy watching o utsiders trying to claw their w ay in. Candidates rewarded in t he primaries for speaking t heir minds and upending c onvention have sought safe h arbor from their earlier s elves. Angle has backed away f rom calling unemployment i nsurance "spoilage" and the f und for BPoil spill victims a slush fund." She denies s he ever favored an end to S ocial Security or veterans b enefits, although she previo usly said she did. Her aside to Hispanic high s chool students that "some o f you look a little more Asian to me" showed why political consultants cringe at spontaneous remarks and why candidates stop making them. Similarly, Democratic Rep. Bobby Bright, a freshman from Alabama who has spent much of the campaign dissociating himself from Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, might have regretted saying Pelosi "may get sick and die" before he has to vote on her speakership again. California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina regretted "the whole situation" when a live mike caught her calling opponent Barbara Boxer's hairdo "so yesterday." The goof was almost quaint, grounded in a technology that's been around long enough to trip up Ronald Reagan and countered by Boxer with humor instead of the modern assault weapon, an attack ad. (Reagan joked about bombing Russia in a 1984 sound check into a live mike.) To be sure, candidates of all backgrounds have stepped into problems of their own making during the long campaign. Rich candidates who live in fancy houses have thrown stones at opponents who live in fancy houses. Senate candidates Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, and Mark Kirk, Republican of Illinois, exaggerated their military records. The experienced Harry Reid, Senate majority leader and Angle's Nevada opponent, cast himself as a savior of epic proportions, remarking that "but for me, we'd be in a worldwide depression." Still, the success of scores of tea party favorites in Republican primaries gave rise to a phalanx of eager achievers unaccustomed to the hothouse; hence, more rough edges. Apizzeria owner, rancher, doctors, war veterans and a pilot are among them. One of the most prominent of the tea party picks, though, is Joe Miller, a lawyer, former judge and Yale grad who's taken a series of rookie missteps. Miller, a Republican Senate hopeful from Alaska, criticized federal unemployment, health care and farm aid only to acknowledge his family has benefited from those subsidies in the past. And he's been saddled by the disclosure that as a borough attorney in 2008, he admitted to lying about improperly using government computers and was disciplined. One of the most unschooled candidates came not from the tea party but out of nowhere. In South Carolina, Democrats were mortified when Alvin Greene, an unemployed military veteran charged with communicating and disseminating obscene materials to a teenage college student, won the party's Senate primary. Greene made the best of a sticky situation when confronted by reporters after a court appearance earlier this month. "The opponent started the recession!" he cried repeatedly. He was recently seen at a state fair, making bunny ears with his fingers over a TV anchorman's head.

Who against hope believed in hope,that he might become the father of many nations,according to that which was spoken,so shall thy seed be.And being not weak in faith,he cosidered not his own body now dead,when he was about an hundred years old,neither yet the deadness of Sarahs womb:he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief;but was strong in faith,giving glory to God;and being full persuaded that,what he had promised,he was able to perform.ŽThough Abraham and Sarah moved beyond the physical limits of child bearing,and though the promise was delayed for many decades,God had spoken,and Abraham obediently waited for that of which was absolutely certain. Abraham knew Gods word was certain.In this passage of scripture Abraham did not stagger at the promise of God,but was strong in his faith,giving glory to God.The scripture continued saying,he was fully persuaded that,what he had promised,he was able to perform.Abraham had faith in God.He is also listed among the Faith of Patriarchs in the 11th chapter of Hebrews.There are many promises in the Word of God for the people of God.If God made the promise,you can stand assured He is able to perform it.What promise you have not seen fulfilled? I encourage you to be strong in the faith and do not faint while you wait.Be Blessed! Attend the Church of Your Choice!

POLITICS By ANDREWVANACORE APBusiness WriterNEWYORK For TV viewers, this cutthroat election year is a riot of attack ads and media saturation made possible by bigmoney donors. For TVstations, it's a stimulus package. One research group expects TVpolitical spending to hit a record $3 billion, and the windfall may continue well past Election Day because regular advertisers are getting squeezed out of the schedule and could spend their ad budgets later. Coming out of a recession that put some broadcasters in or near bankruptcy protection, political spending is emerging as a critical but temporary source of revenue. Several factors created the upsurge: tea party enthusiasm, self-financed millionaire candidates, an unusually high number of toss-up races and a Supreme Court ruling in January that eased rules on corporate campaign donations. Ad rates are going up overall because political campaigns are taking up much of the commercial time. Station managers s ay many regular advertise rs aren't able to buy ads no w. That frees up money to spend later. "The money is mu ch stronger than we anticipa ted, and we thought it wou ld be pretty big," says Chr is Bailey, who manages AB C affiliate WOLO in Columbia, S.C. His statio n is benefiting from a parti cularly expensive Hou se race, one where Rep. J oe Wilson famed for h is "You lie!" outburst durin g last year's State of t he Union address is figh ting to keep his job. The Campaign Med ia Analysis Group, a unit of the consulting firm Kant ar Media, projects that spen ding on political televisio n ads will hit $3 billion th is year. Not only would th at top a record $2.4 billio n spent during the la st midterm elections in 200 6, but it would also surpa ss the $2.7 billion spent in 2008, when both congre ssional and presidenti al campaigns poured cash in to TVads. Political advertising re venue should account f or more than 11 percent of t he total at local broadcast st ations this year.

Do n Seymour, Senior Pastor. Phon e 452-0088.PLACESTOWORSHIP Last night was Trick or Treat and chances are that you saw plenty of vampires in your neighborhood. These fictional, mythologic al creatures are said to r equire the blood of others, w hether living or dead, to e xist. Legends say that they p ierce a hole in their vict im's neck with their teeth or f angs and suck blood from t he area. They are generally n octurnal and are able to t ransform into a bat. We all know that vampires a re not real, but their stories h ave been told since the d ays of early man. However, t here is a bat that does share a few of these attributes. The C ommon Vampire Bat, D esmodus rotundus, does f eed on blood, but rarely if e ver attacks human beings. In fact, the vampire bat is a very unique creature even w hen it comes to bats. They a re believed to be the only t ype of bat in the world to adopt young or infant bats if the mother dies or is not able to care for them. They share a very strong family bond within their colonies. They also share food with each other, which is critical to their survival. Since vampire bats cannot live more than two days without nourishment from a blood source, often they will beg another bat for food. If feeling generous, the bat that has recently had a good meal, may regurgitate some of the pre-consumed blood to sustain the needy member of the colony. This transfer is done in a way that looks very much like mouth to mouth or kissing. Vampire bats differ visually from other bats. They have a short, conical muzzle and are equipped with specialized thermoreceptors on their noses, which allow them to locate areas where blood flows close to the skin. They have small ears and a short tail. Vampire bats have specialized front teeth for cutting, while their back teeth are much smaller than those of other types of bats. Vampire bats can live up to 19 years in captivity and nine years in the wild. Like their mythical namesakes, vampire bats hunt only at night. They emit low-energy sound pulses which help them locate prey. Once the creature hones in on a host, which may be a sleeping mammal, it will land and approach the unsuspecting victim on the ground. It then locates a place to bite the unfortunate prey, using its infrared sensors. It then creates a small incision with its razor-like teeth and drinks the blood that oozes out. These bats use their canine and cheek teeth like a barber's blade to shave away hair. They use their incisor teeth, which lack enamel, to make the deep cut. The absence of enamel keeps these teeth sharp for cutting and piercing. The bat's saliva, which has a unique compound that encourages bleeding, is injected into the victim. This substance is called draculin and serves as an anticoagulant that prohibits clotting and constriction of blood vessels near the wound. This is most likely where the name "Dracula" stems from. Though Dracula is famous for his "I vant to suck your blood" line, vampire bats do not actually suck blood; they lap it up. Afemale vampire bat usually weighs about 2 ounces and may consume half its weight in blood in a 20minute period. These bats have anatomy that allows them rapid processing and digestion and enables them to fly very soon after they eat. The stomach lining quickly absorbs the blood plasma, which is then transported to the kidneys then to the bladder for excretion. Most vampire bats will be able to urinate about two minutes after they eat. Vampire bats are social animals and tend to live in colonies. They love dark places such as caves, wells, buildings and hollow trees. These bats range in area from Central to South America and live in arid to humid, tropical and subtropical areas. The size of the colony can range from one bat to thousands. Often they will roost with other species of bats. The females will usually have only one baby per breeding season. Ordinarily, only one reproducing male will be in a colony. He will be surrounded by as many as 20 females and their young. These tiny, blood-thirsty creatures have a bad reputa tion. They are generally regarded with superstition, fear and uncertainty. Often they are said to be "dirty disease carriers" or "bloodsuckers." In reality, the amount of blood that these creatures need to make a meal would not kill most creatures. The substance in their saliva, draculin, has been used on people with good results as an anticoag ulant. Chances are that you wil l never see a vampire bat and even if you do, there's no need to fear. These creature s have such tiny teeth that many of their victims don't even feel the bite. They rarely attack people and see k out much smaller prey. Sinc e vampire bats have a body barely the size of your thumb and a wingspan of only 8 inches, it's plain to see that many of the myths and legends about the creature are as far fetched as those of Count Dracula.

Common Vampire Bat has bad reputation, but good family values News From The Watershed Corine Burgess Courtesy photo Common Vampire Bats do share some of the characteristics of the fictional, mythical vampires, but instead of attacking humans, they benefit them with a substance in their saliva called draculin.

Please join us for Customer Appreciation Week beginning November 1st at all of our locations. By BETH J. HARPAZ Associated PressNEWYORK Let's f ace it: Teenagers spend h ours texting, socializing on F acebook and playing video g ames. And it's driving their p arents nuts. Sure, there are real dang ers associated with all this s creen time everything f rom cyberbullying to couchp otato obesity. Not to ment ion driving while texting, s hortened attention spans a nd Internet porn. But many of today's pare nts spent hours as kids sitt ing in front of screens too only they were TV s creens. Which raises an interesti ng question: Is Facebook r eally worse for teenagers' b rains than the mindless r eruns of "Gilligan's Island" a nd "The Brady Bunch" that t heir parents consumed g rowing up? Douglas Gentile, a child p sychologist and associate p rofessor at Iowa State U niversity in Ames, Iowa, w ho studies the effects of m edia on children, says text ing, Facebook and video g ames are not inherently b ad. Nor are they inherently b etter or worse than watchi ng TV, although they do p ose different risks, such as c yberbullying. But research has shown t hat the more time kids s pend in front of screens w hether it's TVor instantm essaging the worse their s chool performance. "That d oesn't mean it's true for e very kid, but it makes s ense, that for every hour a k id is playing video games, i t's an hour that they're not d oing homework or reading o r exploring or creating," he s aid. Gentile calls this the "displacement hypothesis. If screen time is displacing doing their homework, that's bad. But if their homework is done, well, so what?" Gentile, who admits that his own teenager crossed the "9,000 texts in one month barrier" last summer, acknowledged that parents are struggling to adjust to a world in which kids would rather look at words on a cell phone screen than have a conversation. "The older generation, it's not their culture," he said. "There is a resistance to it." Watching TVas a family, as mindless as that experience can be, is now regarded with nostalgia by parents. If your kid is sitting in the living room watching "American Idol," you can plop on the sofa with them, and "it's a shared experience," Gentile said. But if they're texting or videochatting with a friend from school, "it's a private experience. It's like they're whispering secrets. And we find it rude." Patti Rowlson, a mother of two in Everson, Wash., says this "has been a topic of discussion in our house for years now." She and her husband started out limiting TV time when their kids were little, but "then technology crept in. Cell phones, laptop computers, iPods with Wi-Fi. We, as parents, were no longer in control of screen time because we could not even tell when they were using it." Recounting a struggle that will sound familiar to many parents, Rowlson said that at first, she and her husband imposed limits on tech use. "There were battles and even groundings," along with the confiscation of iPods, she said. "We were constantly policing and the kids were constantly getting in trouble. We were trying to fight for the old ways, and it was causing a lot of stress and tension in the family. It was ridiculous. So we loosened up. And it's made everybody happier. We were fighting something that you can't hold back. It's how they communicate with their peers." What's been the result? Two good kids, she said. "In the end I'm not sure if having boundaries early on helped them or made no difference at all." Ron Neal, who lives in West L.A., has a teenage daughter who is "tech-driven and passionate about it. ... I don't know how it's going to play out, but I don't have this fear and dread about it." Neal, who admits to watching a lot of "Gilligan's Island" growing up, added: "We had our minds numbed by TV, and maybe they're looking at useless things on the Internet or YouTube, but I also think they're developing a lot of skills through this technology that we could never comprehend. For my daughter, when she is home, she does have everything going the TV, the computer, communicating with friends, and doing the homework at the same time." He admits, though, that there are some frightening aspects to the dependence today's teenagers have on technology. "They are so emotionally connected to being tied in with their friends 24 hours a day, if they get a text, they feel obligated to respond in seconds," he said. He recalled a group of girls showing up for a birthday party at a restaurant, and "everyone of them had their head down, texting." The explosion in teen screen time is well-documented. Arecent Associated Press-mtvU poll found that one-third of college students use computers, cell phones or gaming consoles for six or more hours daily. A Kaiser Family Foundation study published in January found that total media use among 8to 18-year-olds, including TV, music, computers, video games, print and movies has increased from six hours, 21 minutes daily in 2004 to seven hours, 38 minutes in 2009. "Try waking a teenager in the morning and the odds are good that you'll find a cell phone tucked under their pillow," the Kaiser report said. The Kaiser study also found that the more time kids spend with media, the lower their grades and levels of personal contentment are. Gentile said the impact of screen time on school work can be mitigated by what he calls "protective factors." Those might include good teachers and a high-performing school, love of reading, coming from a family wher e education is valued, and exposure to experiences tha t are culturally and intellectu ally enriching. "If you had all these protective factors, said Gentile, "then that one little risk factor (screen time), who cares?" He added that surprisingl y, the amount of time kids spend watching TVhas not declined precipitously with the popularity of computers and gaming, but "they don' t pay nearly the attention (to TV) that they used to." The TVmight be on, but "they' re also instant-messaging, they're on Facebook, they'r e texting." One thing parents should worry about, Gentile said, i s the way electronic devices encourage multitasking. "Multitasking is not reall y good for anyone," he said. "Your reflexes speed up, you're quicker to look over your shoulder and notice lit tle noises or lights. This is not what they need when they get to the classroom and you're supposed to ignore the kid next to you. Scanning to see when the next message comes, this may not be good for kids. The more distractions you have, the worse your performance is." Getting kids to turn off their phones, iPods and computers in order to concentrate on homework and reading, he said, "I thin k that's a fight worth having. Bottom line: Never mind that your kid is spending tw o hours on Facebook each night. As long as they do their homework without tex ting in between math problems, it's probably no bette r or worse than the hours you spent watching "Star Trek." TECHNOLOGY Are texting and Facebook worse for teens than TV? Bottom line: It's probably no worse than what their parents did growing up Karen T.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Lake H ighland Prep held off a l ate-game scoring attempt to d efeat Avon Park 17-13 on F riday in Orlando's CNL S tadium. The loss drops Avon Park t o 2-1 in the District 5-2B s tandings, tied for second p lace with Tampa Catholic, w ho they face next Friday at h ome. "Next week is a big g ame," head coach Andy B onjokian said. "We have a s hot at the playoffs, and if w e play like we played t onight, we can be runneru p in the district." Friday's game was not the r unaway one would have e xpected when the 9-1, h igh-scoring, district-leadi ng Highlanders hosted the 3 -3 Devils. Avon Park fumbled on t heir second play at their o wn 32-yard-line, but held t he Highlanders, forcing a f umble and recovering it in t he end zone for a touchb ack. Early in the second quart er, the Devils would jump o ut in front with a 34-yard s coring run from Tyler J ohnson, but could not conv ert the point after leaving t he score 6-0 Avon Park. Lake Highland returned t he favor when Highlander A lfred Simpson swept right f or a 74-yard run and the t ouchdown on the next s eries. The point after was good, a nd Lake Higland added a 4 3-yard field goal off of the leg of Michael Rasmussen just before the half to leave the score 10-6 when the third quarter started. The defensive war would keep both teams out of the end zone until the Devils capped a 95-yard drive with a touchdown and point after with 4:17 left in the game and Avon Park on top 13-10. Two minutes later, Lake Highland's Simpson would pound in a 28-yard run during the hurry-up offense to take the lead back. Avon Park's last drive was progressing under the pressure of 1:53 left on the clock. But a questionable intentional grounding call would upset their momentum, dumping all the weight on Avon Park's Ryan Dick, who threw an interception on a scramble to end the game. "We played a great game, we just didn't get the break at the end," Bonjokian said. "I am very happy with our performance. We gave the top seeded school a real run for their money. I am very proud of how we stepped up against a great football team. If we play like that next week, we could walk away with the win."

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKELAND It wasn't supposed to happen, not like this. "With their record, with how they beat us during the regular season, I was hoping we could stretch it to four games," Lake Placid head volleyball coach Linette Wells said. After all, this seemed to be the season of turnover in District 9-3Avolleyball. Five-time champion Lake Placid had been dethroned during the regular season by a very strong McKeel Academy team that had swept through the district schedule with nary a challenge and came in boasting a 23-2 record overall. The Dragons hadn't exactly fallen off the map during Wells first year replacing the legendary Marilyn Jones, going 9-3 in district play and 12-6 overall. And yet, this was hard ly what was expected, a thre egame sweep by the Lad y Dragons who pulled it a ll together at just the right tim e, putting on display the cham pionship mettle forg ed through the standard set b y the years of winning.

Coming out of districts, only the first-place finisher in each swimming event automatically moves on, with times between district meets then being compared to fill out the field. Even with looking at only the automatic advancements, the Dragons saw wins in eight different events along with a number of second and close-enough thirds that the times could well move them along. The first win came from Tayler Allcorn who matched his seed time of 2:04.28 in the Boys 200 Free for the win before Shannon Cummings bettered her Girls 50 Free seed time to win in 26.57. Kevin Smit then got a win, swimming the Boys 100 Butterfly in 56.85 and then Cummings advanced in her second event, winning the Girls 100 Free in 58.25. Dylan Weber-Callahan repeated the feat, winning the Boys 100 free with a time of 53.10 for a pretty comfortable two-plus second margin to Maxwell Hewett of All Saints. The biggest win came in the Boys 200 Free Rela y, where Smit, Weber-Callaha n, Pike Cloninger and Edw in Velazquez seemingly vapo rized the water in their pat h, breaking a 19-year old scho ol record with their time of 1:33.60 giving them an astonishing seven-secon d margin of victory. Lake Placid had an equal ly impressive finish in the Bo ys 100 Breaststroke as Cloninger, Velazquez an d Jerquaid Quinn took the to p three slots, respectively.

And while things w eren't always neat and t idy, the Blue Streaks took c are of business in their u sual fashion, with a bigp lay offense and stingy d efense that paved the w ay to a 32-14 win over v isiting Auburndale. "They can put a lot of points on the board," head coach Jared Hamlin said afterward of the Bloodhounds offense. "They scored 31 on a very good Lake Gibson team, so we knew they could score." And yet, the Sebring defense would only give up one score on the night, and that wouldn't come until the 8:18 mark of the fourth quarter, with the Streaks already up 32-7. Sebring's own scoring got started in unusual fashion. Abig play started it, with quarterback Matt Grubb finding a streaking Evan Lewis down the left sideline for a 50-yard gain to the Bloodhound 22. From there Davaris Faulk rumbled for seven yards on two carries. But an eight yard loss brought about fourth-and11 from the 23, bringing out a field-goal attempt from Donovan White. The kick was blocked, but Sebring recovered, regaining possession at the 19. And it was on the next play that Faulk took it in for the opening score, with White adding the extra point. The Streaks got the ball back after a short Auburndale drive stalled and would embark on a drive of their own covering virtually the rest of the opening period. Grubb mixed in some short pass plays and a few runs of his own to get the ball to midfield before connecting with Jaquan Williams on a 26-yarder to the Bloodhound 24. Ashort pass to Lewis got it to the 15 and a Streaks hold down Bloodhounds See SEBRING, page 4D

After all, Dunbar h ad played district power Islan d Coast to a near stand-still t he week before in a 10-6 loss. And they had put up 5 7 and 34 points against distri ct foes Gateway Charter an d LaBelle, respectively. But as they have all se ason, the Dragons came o ut with great effort and it pa id off early. Forcing and recoverin g two first quarter Tiger fum bles, Lake Placid turned ea ch of those into touchdowns f or a shocking 12-0 lead in t he opening period. Knocked back on the ir heels, however, Dunb ar responded. "Defensively we play ed great, for the most part ," head coach Jason Hold en said. "But it was the b ig plays, those one-play drive s, that hurt us." The Tigers would ri de those big plays to 27 una nswered points the rest of t he way for the 27-12 win. Despite the loss, Hold en wasn't down on his team 's play. "As far as effort and t he speed at which we played, it was probably the best gam e we've played this season," he said. "And we know w e could have won this one, b ut we just kept digging ou rselves into holes that w e couldn't get out of." Next up, the Dragons ho st the Griffins of Gatew ay Charter Friday. "They've had their ups an d downs and been throug h some tough times," Hold en said of the Griffins. "If w e play the way we did tonigh t, we'll get the win." Dragons fight but fall at Dunbar

But the Dragons just kept c hurning away, not allowing a ny extended McKeel runs a nd putting together enough s mall runs of their own to e xtend the lead to as much a s 17-11. Oh, the charge would e ventually come as the Lady Cats soon cut it to 18-17, w here many other teams m ay have been then swept a way with the shift in m omentum. But then Miller got anothe r kill, Alysha Curtis a block a nd Olivia Goolsby a kill to g et the Dragons back up 221 7. Edging it to 24-18, M cKeel did reel off four s traight, but a Neilander kill f inished off the opener with a 25-22 win. With Wells'hope to at l east stretch it to four games a ccomplished, it soon s eemed that, from McKeel's p erspective, that order w ould soon be restored as t he Wildcats jumped out to a 4 -1 lead in the second game. And while they would r emain in the lead througho ut the early going, Lake P lacid kept hanging around a nd the frustration and angst w ere clearly starting to show o n the faces of the McKeel p layers. "We just used great teamw ork and communicated w ell," Wells said. "We kept b attling and we started to get i n their heads." Considering they hadn't l ost a match since early S eptember, and hadn't lost m ore than one game in any m atch since then, this indeed w as new territory for the Cats, being down one and s till being battled by a team t hey had gone a combined 61 against during the season. The Dragons caught them at 14-14 and then went on a roll to go up 19-14. Senior Morgan Mumbauer then took the serve and got McKeel back to within one, 19-18, but they'd never get the lead back. Lake Placid kept up the fight, and with a Curtis ace and a Baldwin kill, it was another 25-22 win. Wildcats of this caliber could well be all the more dangerous when wounded, and this group of Cats was definitely wounded at this stage of the match. But there was no denying the Dragons their destiny on this night. Tied at 4-4, a five-point run put Lake Placid up 9-4, then 10-5 and 11-6. Another Curtis ace helped a run that stretched it to 167. "It was in that third game that I knew we had them," Miller said afterward. "You could just kind of feel that this was it." And this was it, as the endless effort and steelyeyed calm finally took the wind out of McKeel's sails. There was little fight left in them from this point forward as the Dragons sewed it up with a 25-14 win. "I was more nervous than they were," Wells said. "I'm so excited right now I'm at a loss for words. "I didn't expect (McKeel) to fall apart, but the girls did what they had to do," she continued after finding some words. "This was the kind of match I've been waiting for all year. This is so very satisfying." The old mentor, Jones, was on hand as well, and found the excitement as a fan hit her even more than during her coaching days. "I was yelling more in the stands than I ever did on the bench," she said. "I'm very excited for them." And the players themselves were reveling in the excitement. "I played in spots at district last year, like a lot of us," Miller said. "This year, with it all being on our shoulders, it feels absolutely amazing." Offensively, Baldwin lead the effort with seven kills, followed by Neilander and Miller with six apiece. Weber set things up with 18 assists while Baldwin served up seven aces. Defensively, Laine Weber-Callahan and Goolsby came up huge with 26 and 22 digs, respectively, while Baldwin and Curtis each blocked four shots to control things at the net. With district title number six in the bag, the win also allows Lake Placid to host their regional quarterfinal game Wednesday against Clearwater Central Catholic, the Disrict 10-3Arunner up. "They'll be tough, but not unfamiliar," Wells said. "We played them in a tournament earlier in the season. They're really good, but we played really well against them." And that was before the team knew that they had what it takes. Continued from 1D Lady Dragons shock McKeel s econd behind and Quinn less t han two seconds behind, l eading one to think their t imes are likely to move them o n. Similarly, the Girls 400 F ree Relay team of Rachel C ope, Shannon Viox, Camille R enzoni and Cummings c linched a spot at sectionals w ith a win in 4:17.32, the B oys 400 Free team of Smit, A llcorn, Weber-Callahand a nd Cody Lambert took seco nd in 3:39.16, less than five s econds behind the winning A ll Saints squad, a time that c ould very well move them a long. Other non-winning times t hat could advance include t he Boys 200 Medley Relay t eam of Matthew Padovano, Q uinn, Smit and Allcorn, fini shing second in 1:53.84, less t han two seconds off the winn ing pace. Cope could possibly move o n in the Girls 200 Im with h er 2:35.71 time as could Weber-Callahan's 23.09, second-place finish in the Boys 50 Free, just .29 seconds behind the winning time. The Lady Dragons of the 200 Free Relay, Cope, Tess Lundy, Renzoni and Cummings could move on with their second-place finish in 1:55.07, Allcorn could move along with his 1:03.34 finish in the Boys 100 Back and Cope has a shot in the Girls 100 Breaststroke with her third-place finish in 1:19.30. "It was quite a day and a very eventful two days with many ups and downs that make this a very sweet victory," head coach Tom Creel said. "They pulled off an incredible performance, overcame diversity, personal challenges and fears and found their inner strength to overcome these challenges both as an individual and as a team to accomplish what they set out to do." Continued from 1D Swim heads to Regionals Grubb keeper brought it to the three. But an incompletion, a bad snap and a holding call moved it back and ate up downs, resulting in a 31-yard White field goal for a 10-0 lead. Sebring would score again after a nice drive, highlighted by a 45-yard Trini Sutton run and culminating in a six-yard Devin Clarke run for a 17-0 lead with 4:59 left in the half. But the Hounds got on the board 12 seconds later as Robert Wilkerson found a seam in the kickoff coverage and brought it back 82 yards to make it a 17-7 game at the half. It didn't take long for Sebring to regain momentum as the opening play of the second half saw a Grubb to Zack Bullock hookup for 49 yards. Faulk then took over, running it three times to cover the final 31 yards to put the Streaks up 23-7. Athree-and-out and a shanked punt gave Sebring the ball back in good field position, but the Auburndale defense stiffened. White, however, added to the lead with a 33-yard field goal, making it 26-7 at the 7:41 mark. Another three-and-out lead to a better punt, but a punt that fell into the hands of the ever-dangerous Clarke, who nearly broke it with a return to the 15 yard line. Sutton then ran for six yards before Grubb found an open Jake Ryan for the 32-7 lead. The Hounds did finally get on the board when, after a short series, a 24-yard pass play got them in the end zone, but it was far too little, far too late to spoil this Homecoming. "It was a very good win and we played well," Haml in said. "We had some big pla ys in the air and the offensi ve line did a nice job with t he running game." With just one game left o n the district docket, t he Streaks host Tenoroc in the ir final home game on Friday 's Senior Night. "We've had a lot of the se kids since they were soph omores," Hamlin sai d. "Working with these kids f or three years, you get close to them and they are a real ly great group. "They've been through a lot, overcome adversity an d have had successes," he co ntinued. "We can only contr ol winning the next one an d we'd like to get to 4-2."
