This requirement shall be met through an online course offered by the Florida Virtual School; an online course offered by the high school; or an online dual enrollment course, the statute says. An online course is one which is delivered via online or using distance learning technology in an interactive learning environment. The requirement takes effect with ninth graders entering high school this year (2011-2012). They must fulfill an online course in order to graduate in 2015.

Helms told the commissioners that a newspaper story, which wasp ublished on Tuesday, was a little misleading and that he was not seeking a raise at this time, despite the fact that his contract stipulates a salary review after his evaluation. Unfortunately, in t he online version of the newspaper artic le, there was a caption underneath the photo of myself there that did speak to the amount of money that was as alary change when I negotiated my contract initially. Unfortunately, that has been picked up as an amount that I am requesting form the board as a change in what my current salaryi s, Helms explained. Helms is currently being paid $135,000 and received a $12,645 raise when he took the top administrator job in January of 2011.

Early Sebring was described as a church city by Sebring historians. The Downtown area was a mere five blocks in each direction, according to historians, and Lake Jackson was surrounded by forest. The Roaring 20s Arts & Crafts Festival is dedicated to preserving the historical feel of what once was while embracing the ideas and attitudes of today. The festival will allow attendees the opportunity to view and purchase unique items throughout the day.

First Baptist of Sebring is one of those churches. It will celebrate its 90th anniversary this weekend. Wednesday morning, Pastor David Richardson sat down with the News-Sun to review a little of its history. He had Gene Sauls, 80, on hand with memories Sauls mother, Dorothy Albritton, was the first baby baptized into the church, and Sauls himself has been a lifelong member. The community is invited to a special worship celebration at 10:20 a.m. Sunday, Pastor Richardson said. Stay for the pot luck meal afterwards, just bring a dish.

C M Y K S heyanne Baker was sitting down to dinner with her h usband when she heard someone at the door. With a daughter deployed to A fghanistan and a son in Iraq at the time, knocks on the door made both their hearts jump. Her husband ran to the door to see whow as there. To their relief, it was not a military messenger carrying bad news. It was a delivery man carrying a box. They were flowers, Sheyanne told the Unknown S oldiers. I said, Honey, you shouldnt have(to myh usband). He said, Read the card. Afew months later, just before this past Christmas, there was another knock ont he door of their Shelton, Wash., home. This time, Sheyanne was at work. The Walmart employee was about to take her lunch breakw hen a co-worker asked her to come to the store managers office. When Sheyanne arrived, the door was closed, prompting her to knock. As one of the managers opened the door, I saw the two servicemen, the mother painfully recounted. Oh my God, which one?I said. Then they had me take a seat and told me who it was. It was Sheyannes oldest daughter, Spc. Mikayla Bragg, who was just a few days away from leaving Afghanistan. According to the Pentagon, the 21-year-o ld soldier died in Khowst Province on Dec. 21, 2011. H er mother said that as of Feb. 2, an Army investiga-t ion into Mikaylas death was still in progress, although she has been told that her daughter a qualified sharpshooter died ina guard tower. Sheyanne last spoke to her daughter on Dec. 19, two days before her death. Mikayla said that while thep revious day had actually been fun, she was looking forward to coming home soon. Id always tell her I love her and to be safe, the grieving mom said. Her last words to me were I love you too and I always am. In the middle of a griefinduced blur, Sheyanne found herself on a six-hour flight from the Pacific Northwest to Dover, Del., where the soldiers loved ones, including her father, Steve Bragg, welcomed Mikayla home. The flagdraped casket carrying the remains of Spc. Bragg wouldb e escorted back to Washington state by her half-brother, Sgt. Allen Davids, 26, who returned from Iraq shortly before Mikaylas death in Afghanistan. He was driving home from his base to surprise his family for Christmas when he got the tragic news. I dont know how he held it together, but he said, Nobody else is going to bring home my sister Sheyanne recalled. Instead of a celebration under the gold star on top of the Christmas tree, Sheyanne was forced toa djust to life as a Gold Star mother.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The Sebring City Council passed two sign ordinances, one unanimously, Tuesday evening. Both ordinances drafted by City Attorney Bob Swaine amended previous ordinances and were changed after numerous discussions between council members and Planning and Zoning Director Jim Polatty. The first ordinance (No. 1329) amended the ordinance regarding residentially zoned districts. The amended section of the ordinance reads: Only one identification sign, not exceeding six square feet in area, shall be allowed on any one property...If the identifying sign describes a home occupation, the sign must be attached to the wall of the home and may not exceed more than three (3 feet out from the wall of the home. The second ordinance (No. 1330) regulates lighted or illuminated signs in public zoned districts within the city limits. Three sections of this ordinance were amended, each of which regulate placement of a lighted sign, the size of a lighted sign and public zoned property guidelines. The lighted sign ordinance was originally amended for the purpose of the Highlands County Fair Association. The rezoning of the property allows the HCFAto place a lighted sign as long as it is in regulation with the remaining ordinance amendments. Council member John Clark made it clear from day one that he was unhappy with the rezoning of the HCFA from commercial to public for the sake of installing a sign. Id like to voice for the record that Ill vote against this again. I dont believe the Firemen Inc. property or the Highlands County Fairgrounds Association property should be zoned public property, said Clark. Council member Andrew Fells echoed Clarks remark. President Scott Stanley clarified that the ordinance and the vote had little to do with the zoning but was for the sign being placed in the area. The issue was created by them bringing a sign for approval, Clark said. The ordinance was passed with a 3-2 vote, Clark and Fells casting the dissenting votes. Both sign ordinances passed by Sebring council See SOLDIER page 5A Women Veterans to host recruitment social on SaturdayS EBRING All women veterans are cordially invited to attend a meet and greet social on Saturday at the Veteran Services OfficeC onference Room.

It was a small wooden framed building opened in 1923. As the congregation grew, so did the buildings shelter-i ng them. In 1938, the original c hurch house was turned into the parsonage and The Red Brick Church, with a bellv ault, was built. By 1958 the congregation h ad outgrown that building too, and another one was raised. It was called theG lass Church because it was made entirely of windows. In 1987 the current sanct uary was completed at 200 East Center Ave. O ne of Saulsearlier memories is playing in holes being dug for the foundation of the new Red Brick Church. As fast as the holesw ere emptied, boys would jump in, filling them. That was the worst whipping I ever got, Sauls said, recalling when his father caught him. T he punishment didnt slow Sauls down, though. Once built, the church was n ever locked. He admitted a favorite practical joke for n eighborhood children was sneaking in and pulling the bell cord the later at night the better. Sebring was tiny in those d ays, Sauls said. Four blocks off the Circle and you w ere in the woods practically. If you went around the lake you were in the woods. Our lives revolved around the church. We w ould meet there. It would hold good, strong revivals that would last a good week l ong. There were also city wide revivals we all participated in together. e didnt have T.V. although my family did havea radio, believe it or not, and I was born in a hospital, believe it or not. In 1958, The Glass Church opened. While bright andb eautiful, it was not without its distractions. L ocated near the fire house, every time the alarm w ent off during a service the congregation couldnt help but watch through the win-d ows as the engines roared away. It was hard to focus, said Sauls. We had 15 volunteer firefighters (he was one of them). The fire alarm would go off and wed getu p and leave. One pastor, Bob B aberman, just warming to his sermon, ended the service abruptly one Sundayw hen the volunteers all rose together at the sound of the a larm. I lost all my concentration, he told Sauls later. And I never will forget t he streaker running by outside during a service, Sauls said laughing. That was an exciting Sunday morning.

C M Y K Campbell has run a very efficient and very friendly office since his election in 1996, providing quick answers to questions and immediate transparency to any question the public, or the media, asked. Campbell was the walking example of open government at all times. Even when things did not run correctly — and with a process that is as complicated and restrictive like voting, something is always going to happen — Campbell and his staff always worked within the rules to produce an effective solution. The goal was to make the election process work efficiently and effectively, and they accomplished that goal every election and despite what changes were mandated from the state. Each person in Campbell’s office will pick-up a question from the public and run with it, asking for help sometimes, but never dismissing any citizen with any question and staying with them until their question is answered. That dedication to making sure the voting process moves forward in the heat of the current political discourse of smear and sling is something to be admired. To do one’s job while the hurricane winds of politics blows constantly around you is tough, but Campbell and crew were ever the eye of the storm — calm, quiet and protective of the process. Campbell stressed excellence in the inner workings of his office, but still made sure that everyone took the time to educate the public or those seeking office without prejudice. The phase “I’ll just ask Joe,” was heard from many sources when it came to elections questions. Campbell and his staff are the experts. And when they do not know, Campbell has always been eager to tackle Tallahassee to find out. Well, soon will come the day when we as voters will no longer be able to “Go ask Joe.” Whoever takes his spot has to be able to replace him, his competence and his tenacity to get the job done, or the county will lose out. Many on his team have been trained and cross-trained to fill his shoes, but no one will carry the same quiet and confident professional presence. We know there is some time left, but everyone here at the News-Sun would like to say thanks for making the American process of elections better. Well done, Joe.

If they did, they would realize how counterproductive to the longrange future of Highlands County and the college putting the Parkway through the middle of the college would be. Another location must be found. First, the college is vital to the growth and development of Highlands County. It is the single most important asset we have. When the college became community-focused 28 years ago and began offering employer-specific training, expanded degree programs and the Cultural/Artist Series, wonderful things began to happen. Both the college and the county experienced major growth leading to the establishment of the Lakeshore Mall, chain restaurants, a new hospital and many, many new businesses, none of which existed before. Existing businesses experienced new growth. The college is now poised to begin the next major phase of its development with the addition of four-year college degrees. The growth will be phenomenal and will have a tremendous impact on the future of Highlands County. The college owns all of the land on both sides of College Drive between U.S. 27 and Memorial Drive except for two small parcels, the Ridge Area Arc and the Cluster Homes. The college also owns the land beneath College Drive. The county maintains College Drive at no cost to the college as part of an interlocal agreement dating back to the 1960s, which was Highlands County’s inducement for the college to be located in Highlands County instead of Hardee County. The county has continued to honor its commitment through the years. In the future, the college will need to continue to develop the land with facilities on both sides of College Drive with even more students crossing College Drive to reach other parts of the campus. Aheavily traveled Parkway bisecting the campus would be a horrible and dangerous impediment to development. In fact, if you look at what has happened on other campuses across the state, once public thoroughfares have been vacated/abandoned and those roads turned into campus-only roads. I can easily see the same future for College Drive. When the initial planning was being done for the Parkway years ago, no one from the county ever approached SFCC with the idea of putting the Parkway through the campus. We read about it in the newspaper. When I scheduled a meeting at the county office, I was told that it would be cheaper than having to cross the railroad track just north of College Drive. No consideration seemed to be given to the extremely negative effect it would have on the college. Since that time, the College Board of Trustees and the administration have been firmly against having the Parkway bi-sect the campus. We need to focus on long-range planning that will make wise use of our tax dollars – not quick fixes that will be both destructive and wasteful and have to be replaced in a few short years. Further, we need to protect and enhance the college and its ability to grow rather than create hindrances to the goose that lays the golden eggs. Dr. Catherine Cornelius is President Emerita of South Florida Community College. Parkways next phase would be counter-productive Guest Column Dr. Catherine Cornelius Thanks, Joe, for a job well done The announcement that Supervisor of Elections Joe Campbell was not seeking re-election was definitely news, but not good news for Highlands County voters.

So how is this hope and change working out for ya? John Payne SebringSprinkle the fairy dustEditor: Common sense, may it rest in peace. Was it the Green Hornet who learned the art of clouding man’s mind? Congress has learned that secret. How else can you explain that year after year they told us they have the wisdom to make socialism work. Year after year the unintended consequences of socialism are ignored. Or is it the fairy dust (the prom ise of bread and circus) that clouds our minds. The nine supreme wizards could wave their magic wand and the fairy dust would disappear. But they too have ignored the wishes of the founding fathers. Russell Erret t Sebring BouquetPasser-by helps concerned womanEditor: On Saturday, Jan. 28, I had a dizzy spell while at my mailbox. I usually carry my phone with me, but I didn’t have it that day. I was unable to move from the mailbox so I held on to it. I didn’t want to fall. Since I live on a busy street, I thought I could get somebody’s attention if I flagged them down ... to no avail. I think they thought I was saying hello to them. After what seemed like a long, long time, a gentleman named Joey, in a black truck, stopped. I told him my problem and held on to him until he could get me to my door, safely. I didn’t want to fall. I will be forever grateful to him for his assistance. Thank you. Julia McGir r EDITORIALPAGEPOLICYMake sure to sign your letter and include your address and phone number.

H elms recently came under fire because of a poor evaluation from the board, and at the end of the Tuesday meeting, CommissionerB arbara Stewart called for a vote of no confidence and made a motion to put Helms on administrative leave as the first step in firing h im. Helms responded last week to the poor e valuations he received from three of the five board members in an email and stated Tuesday he had sit down with each commissioner on a one-on-one basis before the Tuesday meeting. I was puzzled by some of the comments contained in the evaluations of my job performance since February of last year. I have enjoyed the opportunity to discuss the evaluations with each of the Commissioners. Evaluations provide an opportunity to identif y ways to improve job performance. There is always room for improvement, Helms wrote. Many of the problems are long term and c annot be solved instantly by a single silver bullet. Employees from all business sectors a re disappointed and frustrated. It is difficult at best to improve employee morale in the current business environment.T he measure of success will be in how we respond to adversity, continued Helms. I am confident that I can continue to address the short a nd long term problems that we are facing. Anyone that truly knows me will echo my commitment to fairness, a fierce competitiveness that drives me to succeed, ethical per-f ormance even when the chips are down, and the desire to always do what is right, Helms said in his e-mail.

While significant numbers o f students are comfortable and competent with computers, Fleck said, just as many are not. In a county where some homes do not even havea telephone, not all students have access to computers. It is critical for schools to provide access and instruction, Fleck said. Beyond that, there are m any students who are competent with machines and s oftware but do not know how to study online. The experience is very diff erent from classroom learning where students have t eachers in the flesh to keep them focused and answer questions. Studying online requires self-direction and self-discipline, not just com-p uter skills. So students will not simply t ake a subject online. First they will be taught how to learn online. Fleck said this is why the district is combining its leade rship course taken by all freshmen with the new Computer Applications I. The district plans to use Highlands County teachers both in the class and as theo nline facilitators. They will develop as much of the program in-house as they can. This is so, we can have a course to fit our students needs. By doing this our-s elves we control the content. B y using our teachers we can build a professional cadre (capable of developing new p rograms in the future), F leck said. That will bring a dditional curriculum into the classroom. T here are financial considerations, too. Schools give away fulltime equivalent (FTEi ng when a student takes an online course from an out-ofd istrict provider.

C M Y K W ASHINGTON (AP Pentagon rules are catching up a bit with reality after a decade when women in the U.S. military have served,f ought and died on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. On Thursday, the Pentagon is recommendingt o Congress that women be allowed to serve in more jobs closer to the front lines. According to defense officials, the new rules aree xpected to continue the long-held prohibition that prevents women from serv-i ng as infantry, armor and special operations forces. But they will formally alloww omen to serve in other jobs at the battalion level, which u ntil now had been considered too close to combat. In reality, however, the n ecessities of war have already propelled women to t he front lines often as medics, military police or intelligence officers. So, while a woman couldnt be assigned as an infantrymani n a battalion or in a company going out on patrol, she c ould fly the helicopter supporting the unit, or move in to provide medical aid ift roops were injured. The officials said the new r ules will formally allow women to be assigned to a battalion and serve in jobs s uch as medics, intelligence officers, police or communications officers. The changes would have the greatest effect on the Army andM arine Corps, which ban women from more jobs than the Navy and Air Force do, largely because of the infantry positions.Analysis: Obama birth control policy has political costThe Obama administrations new mandate that religious organizations pay for their workersbirth controlh as become a bludgeon for Republican culture warriors, as social issues have surged to the forefront in the presidential campaign. C onservatives who believe religious freedom always trumps gender equity in the public arena are outraged. But so too are Roman Catholic and evangelical moderates who have stuck with President Barack Obama, an abortion rights supporter, because of his 2008 pledge to reduce the abortion rate and find common ground among religious and secular Americans. These backers say the administration could have easily avoided the controversy by including broader religious exemptions already in place at some federal agencies. After two weeks of unrelenting condemnation led by the nations Catholic bishops, the White House has responded by hinting at some compromise in how the requirement is enforced. Administration officials insist any accommodation for religious groups will leave in place contraceptive coverage, although they havent said how. But even the suggestion of a revision, no matter how limited, has infuriated Democrats the president hoped to please with the regulation. As the debate rages, womens groups, liberal religious leaders and health advocatesa re rallying in favor of the broadest contraceptive cove rage that would include Catholic employers. e believe that women a nd men have the right to decide whether or not to a pply the principles of their faith to family-planning decisions, and to do so they m ust have access to services, read a statement Wednesday from liberal religious leaders representing Reform and ConservativeJ ews, Methodist and Episcopal groups, among others. The administration was correct in requiring institutions that do not havep urely sectarian goals to offer comprehensive prevent ive health care. The conflict is erupting as G OPcandidates compete for the title of the true conservative in the presidential race. The contraception debate is tailor-made for the fight.Deputies were dispatched to Powell home nearly 8 minutes after call TACOMA, Wash. (AP Emergency call logs show that nearly eight minutes elapsed between when a social worker called 911 to report that Josh Powells children were in danger and when sheriffs deputies were dispatched. By the time officers were on their way, the home was exploding in a gas-fueled inferno, with Powell and his two young boys inside. The priority of the dispatch Sunday was routine instead of emergency which cost several minutes of response time, and when the deputies arrived 14 minutes later, there was nothing they could do. The Associated Press obtained the logs Wednesday night under a public records request. Recently released audio recordings of the 911 calls raised questions about how the dispatch center handled the social workers call regarding Powell, who was a person of interest in the disappearance of his wife two years ago. The worker detailed how Powell had locked her out of his house during what was supposed to be a supervised visit with his sons, that she could smell gas, and that shef eared for their lives.Gingrich hopes to hold off Santorum C LEVELAND (AP Newt Gingrich, suddenly in d anger of losing his perch as Mitt Romneys strongest GOPchallenger, is fine-tuni ng his presidential campaign to place more emphasis on raising money, guarding his home turf and trying to avoid nasty quarrels witht he front-runner. Rick Santorums stunning success in this weeks elections in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri has fueled hisc laim that he, not Gingrich, is best qualified to rally cons ervatives who feel Romney is too moderate and unreli-a ble. Gingrich, the former House speaker, again faces a dilemma that has doggedh im for much of the election. Should he show his feistier, m eaner side at the risk of turning off voters who want pragmatic solutions more than expressions of anger? Or should he use a tamer,h igh-minded tone and risk losing economically anxious, resentful Republicans such as those who handed him his only victory, in SouthC arolina?Iran to top of US worry listW ASHINGTON (AP The prospect of conflict with Iran has eclipsedA fghanistan as the key national security issue with head-spinning speed. Aftery ears of bad blood and an international impasse over I rans disputed nuclear program, why does the threat of war seem so suddenly uponu s? The short answer is that I ran has used the years of deadlock over whether it was pursuing a bomb to get within roughly 12 months of being able to build one. Iranc laims its nuclear program is not aimed at building a b omb, but it has refused to drop suspect elements of the program. Time is running short for Iran to back down without af ight. Time is also running short for either the United States or Israel to mount a preemptive military strike on Irans nuclear sites, some-t hing that seemed far-fetched until fairly recently. It is still unlikely, and for the U.S. represents the last worst option to stop an Iranianb omb. The United States has a very good estimate ofw hen Iran could produce a weapon, President Barack Obama said this week.

C M Y K By LAURAWIDES-MUNOZ APHispanic Affairs WriterMIAMI AFlorida g roup that wants tougher laws against those in the country illegally is thanking Gov. Rick Scott for welcoming illegal immi-g rants. The Pompano Beachb ased nonprofit Floridians for Immigration Enforcement is deliveringt he tongue-in-cheek message on a billboard that went up W ednesday on Interstate 75, between the Georgia border and Interstate 10. T he billboard reads: elcome Illegal Immigrants: Weoffer jobs, health care, education and benefits. It suggests thati llegal immigrants thank the Republican governor. It also features the iconic yellow-and-black graphic ofa family running that often a ppears on roads near the U.S.-Mexican border to alert m otorists to immigrants crossing. T he governors office declined to comment on the sign. Scott supported the legislation during the 2011 ses-s ion, but has not appeared to push for it this year. The group is angry that bills that would require companies in Florida to use ano nline federal program to identify whether a potential new hire can legally work have stalled in Tallahassee. The E-verify program is voluntary at the federal level. Yet a small but growing number of states now require many employers use it. Critics say the error rate is too high. They also note that t he program does little to identify those who use a n ame and Social Security number belonging to someone else. But the groups legislative director, Jack Oliver, sayst he program is constantly being improved, and the syst em is now incorporating passports and other photo identification to reduce thea bility of illegal immigrants to use Social Security numb ers acquired through identity theft. State Rep. Gayle Harrell, R -Port St. Lucie, has sponsored a bill (HB1315 year that would require private employers in Florida to u se the federal database EVerify to check the status of n ew employees. But the legislation has yet to be heard in committee in the Florida House. House Speaker Dean C annon, R-Winter Park, said he would not comment on an i ndividual piece of legislation, but said it was up to Harrell to convince commit-t ee chairman to hear her bill. As for groups that may be u pset at the Legislature for a perceived lack of action, he said: There are always g roups upset with the Legislature about what we pass or dont pass. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, February 10, 2012Page 9A LAKE COUNTRY JEWELERS; 9.347"; 3"; Black; 2/3,10,17,24; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 5 5 3 3 2 2 WILKES, W.

F ive major banks Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup and Ally Financial will pay roughly $26 billion to reimburse American homeownersa nd overhaul their industry. The nationwide settlement stems from abuses that occurred after the housing bubble burst. Many companies that process f oreclosures failed to verify documents. Some employees signed papers they hadnt read or used fake signatures to speed foreclosures a n action known as robo-signing. The deal would be the biggest involving a single industry since a 1998 multistate tobacco deal. It would force the five largest m ortgage lenders to reduce loans for about 1 million households. The reduced loans would benefit homeowners who are behind on their payments and owe more thant heir homes are worth. In addition, another 750,000 Americans about half of the households who might be eligible for assistance under the deal w ould likely receive checks for about $1,800 each. The banks and U.S. state attorneys general agreed to the deal lateW ednesday after 16 months of contentious negotiations. New York and California came on board late Wednesday, according toa person close to the negotiations. T he source was not authorized to disclose the agreement before Thursdays announcement. California has more than 2 million underwater borrowers,w hose homes are worth less than their mortgages. New York has some 118,000 homeowners who are underwater. The settlement ends a painful c hapter that emerged from the financial crisis, when home values sank and millions edged toward foreclosure. In addition to the pay-m ents and mortgage write-downs, the deal promises to reshape longstanding mortgage lending guidelines. It will make it easier for those at risk of foreclosure to make theirp ayments and keep their homes. Those who lost their homes to foreclosure are unlikely to get their homes back or benefit much financially from the settlement. T he settlement would apply only to privately held mortgages issued from 2008 through 2011. Banks own about half of all U.S. mortgages roughly 30 millionl oans. Some critics say the proposed deal doesnt go far enough. They have argued for a thorough investi-g ation of potentially illegal foreclosure practices before a settlement is hammered out. Under the deal: $17 billion will go toward r educing the principal that struggling homeowners owe on their mortgages. $5 billion will be placed in a reserve account for various statea nd federal programs; a portion of that money will cover the $1,800 checks sent to those homeowners affected by the deceptive practices. About $3 billion will help h omeowners refinance at 5.25 percent.

Pictured are Michael Sheldone, Donna Vinson, Paul Vinson and Nancy Willard. Chili Cook-Off winners Group uses billboard to chide Gov. Scott on immigration A ssociated PressSAN DIEGO Supporters of a war memorial cross deemed unconstitu-t ional last year by a federal court plan to ask the Supreme Court to reverse the decision, amid a growing fight nationwide over the useo f religious symbols to honor fallen troops. Anonprofit legal firm, Liberty Institute in Washington D.C., planned to file its petition Thursday to preserve the 43-foot cross on federal land atop San Diegos Mt. Soledad the same day the group called on combat veterans and supporters to demonstrate at the picturesque site overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the suburb of La Jolla. The Supreme Court has signaled a greater willingness to allow religious symbols on public land, and the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill last month that writes into law the propriety of displaying such markers at war memorials. Last years ruling by the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals capped two decades of legal challenges over the 1913 monument, which became a memorial to Korean War veterans. Anumber of other military memorials on public lands across the country have been challenged in recent years byc ivil liberty activists and atheists who say they violate the separation between church and state. The Supreme Court in 2 010 refused to order the removal of a congressionally endorsed war memorial cross from its longtime home atop a remote rocky outcropping in Californias Mojave Desert. But Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-San Diego, said he is not relying on the courts. He introduced the bill passed by the House in January that would codify the existing practice of allowing religious symbols at military monuments established or acquired by the federal government. Hunter said he drafted the bill with the Mt. Soledad monument in mind but it goes beyond that. This isnt just about San Diego, Hunter told The Associated Press. This about the rights of members of the military to adorn gravestones and war memorials to honor those who fought in wars with whatever the heck they want to have there, period. Supreme Court asked to save Calif. war memorial By CHRISTINAHOAG and G REG RISLING Associated PressL OS ANGELES An entirely new staff of teachers will greet stu-d ents Thursday at an elementary school rocked l ast week by the arrests of two longtime teachers on lewdness charges. T he case of a thirdgrade teacher accused of feeding children his s emen during bizarre tasting games in his c lassroom over a five-year period has garnered international headlines and roiled the nations secondlargest school district. A mid outrage from parents, Los Angeles Unified School District officials closed Miramonte Elementary School for two days to completely turn over the 120-members taff, from janitors to principal. T he new staff comprises a retired principal, 88 teachers and also support staff who were recently laid off and were on ar ehiring list. The schools reopening follows revelations Wednesday of 200 more inappropriate photos ofc hildren and that one teacher sent warmly written birthday cards and presents to students who participated in his games. According to three lawsuits filed against the district, teacher Mark Berndt sent birthday cards to some of the girls, asking how they were adjusting to the fourth grade. He also wrote warm notes such as surely no teacher could ever have a more wonderful student than you!! and P.P.S. The Roaches Say Hi! He signed the notes: Mr. B. The cards were provided as exhibits in the lawsuits, which were filed Tuesday on behalf of three former students of Berndt. They allege that the district and Principal Martin Sandoval failed to adequately safeguard them against Berndt and a second teacher arrested, Martin Springer, who faces three lewdness charges in connection with the fondling of a secondgrader.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comS EBRING Making his way through the amateur ranks of mixed martial arts fighting, Sebring native Noah Weed is seeing steady progress. That progress took a big step thanks to a roundhouse kick Saturday, Jan. 28, when Weed took out his opponent in 31 seconds to win the Kick International All Martial Arts Super Fights championship belt in Melbourne. It was actually more like 23 seconds, said Weeds trainer, manager and father Steve Weed, who runs the Universal Center of Natural Martial Arts. When he connected with the kick, that guy was out on his feet. He went down but was still moving and, like you see in Ultimate Fighting, youre supposed to go and finish him. Noah got him in a choke hold and I was up yelling for them to stop the fight, which they finally did. The latest win moved Weeds amateur record to 32, with things looking up. He lost his first two fights, but has now won three in a row, Steve Weed said. In the state of Florida, you h ave to have five amateur fights before you turn pro. B ut thats not in the immediate future for Noah, though he might want it to be. If all goes well Id like to shoot for this summer, he said. But his father has a different idea. I told him 2013, Steve said. I really want to groom him to gain confidence and make sure he is comfortable and fully knows what to do in the ring. And while the anxiousness of youth propels the 19-yearold, he too realizes what he needs to work on. Im an allaround fighter, on my feet and on the ground, he said. Im working on my takedowns and my nervousness in the ring. I dont know what it is, but right now its a totally different feeling when I get in there. He is obviously improving, as his last fight would indicate, with his next fight on tap for Saturday night at the King of the Castle tournament in Kissimmee, in hopes of adding another belt to his growing collection. His progress is also being noticed as he was sent a letter by promoters to take part in a World Cage Warriors event in Ocala this May. I cant get much information on the guy Ill be fighting, Noah said. All I know is hes 10-1 and weve both lost to the same guy, who is still undefeated. Before that, Weed will have to defend his KIAMA belt in April. Atough and busy road, for sure, but one that will help him progress further toward reaching that next level. Ive been training with my dad since I was 4, Weed said. And Ive wanted to fight since I was 15. Id like to perform in the cage like I do in the gym to succeed. He certainly seems to be on his way. By LAUREN WELBORN N ews-Sun correspondentThe Sebring varsity softball team premiered their new threads and fresh team as they hosted Hardee for their first home game of the regular season Tuesday night. After losing a couple of k ey starters from last year, the Lady Streaks are still working out the usual kinks that come with position changes and accommodations. This was a factor as they saw a 14-4 loss to the Lady Wildcats. Starting pitcher Haley Pack almost escaped a tough first inning, loading the bases but getting to two outs and two strikes. But an ensuing single to left brought two in before the inning ended. The Streaks, however, tied it up on a two-out, two-run Dino Lower home run in the bottom of the frame. B ut it was all downhill from there. As play continued, Sebring's nerves got the best o f them as a few errors showed on the field. Hardee broke out the big b ats and got into the swing that would continually increase their lead. The fundamentals just weren't there, Pack said. e made way too many mental errors and shot ourselves in the foot. D espite the loss, Sebring looks forward to a successful season as their team grows stronger together. They plan to work hard and become a force to be reckoned with in the future. T he Lady Streaks are on the road today to take on LaBelle High school with high hopes of bringing home the win.

Answer: They were all born in 1918. Only Mandela and Chipps are still alive. Chipps, the ever-smiling catcher for Lockhart Service Center, celebrated his 94th birthday this week with his fellow players in Lake Placid Senior Softball. Alarge sheet cake with his picture was presented in his honor. Players shook his hand and wondered what was his secret to longevity. Aformer tobacco farmer near London, Ontario, Chipps said he never smoked in his life. I would have an occasional rum and coke in my youth, admitted the patriarch of eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. He still shoots 18 holes of golf a week, and hopes to someday have his score lower than his age. I shot 100 last week, he said. Only six more years to go! In league action on Wednesday, Feb. 8, Chipps smashed a solid single to help Lockhart (4-5 Central Security (6-4 The loss ended Centrals five-game winning streak that has catapulted them into first place. All four of their losses have been by one run. Lockhart manager Darrel Richards led the way with five hits (double, triple Bill Gallagher homered, Paul Brand doubled and tripled, Norm Grubbs had two doubles and Ian McCuaig tripled for the winners. For Central, Fred Moore had five hits. The Three Hit Club included Jim Hensley (double Lorne (double Minnick (doubleild Bill Destefano. In the other contest of the day, Seminole Tire (4-6 lected 42 hits on their way to a 24-17 win over slumping Yates Insurance (5-4 Leading the Noles were Jim Guild and Larry Oser with six hits, Glenn Wearsch with five, and Ray Wilson, Dick Cook, Hugh Grimaldi and Gallo Gonzalez with four hits each. Chuck OHara made two sparkling plays at second base. For Yates, losers of four of their last five, Ed Engler had five hits (three doubles an unassisted double play on defense. Manager Doran Quigg, Bill Card and Joe Hedges had four hits each, with Hedges hitting for the cycle. Ron Hanish and Gary Pixley had three hits apiece in the loss. On Monday, Chipps Lockhart team played to a 99 tie with Yates Insurance, before the contest was suspended by rain. It will be continued the next time the two teams play. Manager Darrel Richards had three hits for Lockhart, while Wahoo Stanley doubled and homered for Yates. On the other field, Central Security pounded Seminole Tire 25-10. ild Bill Destefano and Glenn Minnick had five hits each, while Jim Lorne and Fred Moore anchored the defense with stellar glovework for the winners. For Seminole Tire, Jim Guild and Chet Johnson each contributed three hits.

B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAvon Park has made it to the title game of the District 10-4Atournament, winning their sixth in a row Tuesday night. The Devils held off a feisty Frostproof squad for a 71-55 win at Mulberry, setting up tonights championship clash with DeSoto. In two December meetings with the Bulldogs of Arcadia, Avon Park had little trouble, cruising to a 76-61 district schedule win and a 96-59 beat down in the Taveniere Tournament at Sebring. But it was on Friday, Jan. 20, that DeSoto surprised the visiting Devils with a 77-70 win that began a three-game losing streak. A67-51 loss at Chipley followed the next day and an 80-70 loss at Hardee took place five days later. Since then, however, AP has righted the ship, finishing off their season district slate with a 97-55 win over Mulberry, before topping Southeast of Bradenton, Clearwater Central Catholic, Fort Myers and Windermere Prep top notch competition as a team-steeling tune-up for tournament time. Tuesdays contest started slow, with the Bulldogs keeping it even after one at 13-13. But the Devils sparked in the second, outscoring Frostproof 17-10 by halftime. Ricky Cobb, however, heated up in the third to help his squad cut the lead to just four by the end of the third. Cobb would go for a game-high 25, but Reggie Baker and Michael Rhoden went for six and four points, respectively, over the final eight minutes, helping Avon Park win going away.

C M Y K By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA South Floridas Hugh Robertson combined a perfect night offensively witha stellar defensive performance that helped the Bulls rebound from their worstever Big East loss. Robertson had a seasonhigh 18 points and helped USF (14-10, 7-4 Pittsburgh star Ashton Gibbs to a season-low four points ina 63-51 victory over the Panthers on Wednesday night. Augustus Gilchrist added 10 points for the Bulls, who lost by 30 points at Georgetown last weekend. Pitts been on a roll, winning four games straight. Playing great coming into this game, Gilchrist said. So we knew we had to bring our Agame. The Bulls limited Pitt (1510, 4-8) to 35-percent shooting, with the Panthershighscoring backcourt of Gibbs and Tray Woodall going a combined 6 of 22 from the field. The loss ended the winning streak Pitt had put together following an 0-7 start in conference play. Woodall led the Panthers with 11 points, but made just4 of 13 shots. Gibbs missed his first four shots and finished 2 of 9, with Robertson spearheading the effort to shut him down. It wasnt just me, it was a team effort, Robertson said. I just tried staying with him, just take him out of the game. Gibbs averaged nearly 19 points during Pitts winning streak and entered the night with a 16.6 average overall. He was held below double figures for the just the third time this season. I think they frustrated all of us, Woodall said. Its a team game; it wasnt just one guy they frustrated. (Gibbs just didnt hit some shots, and they did a good job of crowding him and making him take tougher shots. He just didnt get any great looks. Gibbs was 0-for-4 in the opening half and remained scoreless until finally makinga jumper five minutes into the second half. ere extremely disappointed because we havent been playing like this, Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said. Pitt shot less than 35 percent in the first half and turned the ball over nine times, yet only trailed 27-23 at halftime. Unfortunately for the Panthers, it didnt get any better the rest of the way. Toarlyn Fitzpatricks 3pointer put USF up 41-31 with 14 minutes to go. Pitt cut its deficit to eight on two occasions, but each time the Bulls answered witha basket to stay in control. When Robertson, Fitzpatrick and Collins scored during a quick 6-0 burst, the lead grew to 14 with 8 minutes to go. Pitt kept battling, but never got into a rhythm offensively. Lamar Pattersons 3-pointer trimmed USFs lead to 5345 with 2:41 remaining, however, the Panthers didnt get closer than eight down the stretch. Woodalls return from an abdominal injury ignited Pitts winning streak. By KYLE HIGHTOWER A ssociated PressORLANDO Its been an open secret for several seasons how much the 3-point shot has become an indispensable part of the Orlando Magics offense. They reminded the Miami Heat just how punishing they can be when they get it going from long range. Dwight Howard had 25 points and 24 rebounds, Ryan Anderson scored 27 and the Magic hit 17 3-pointers in a 1 02-89 victory Wednesday night. Anderson had five 3s all in the first half and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead the Magic. Howard posted his 20th double-double of the season. Orlando fell two shy of its season high for 3s and set a team record with 42 attempts. A nderson said as much as it might have looked as though the Magic were just jacking up 3s, there is a defi-n ite method to their attack when they get hot from the o utside. If somebody starts r olling, then all the attentions going to be on them. T hen well swing it around and weve got another shooter, Anderson said. I think when the crowd gets into it, when we have great energy asa team and were being really unselfish and moving the ball, it is contagious. The Magic have won four of five since their seasonhigh four-game losing streak. They have also beaten Miami in nine of their last 11 meetings in Orlando. Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 33 points, but had only 11 after halftime. LeBron James added 17 as the Heat had their three-game winning streak snapped. Miami continues its sixgame road trip Friday at Washington. They set the tone this game, right from the get-go, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. We were able to get into a little bit more of an aggressiveness and attack. A little bit more of a disposition in the second quarter, but they were able to sustain it longer and more consistently than we were able to. In the middle of a stretch of 20 games in 32 days before the All-Star break, the Magic got a rare day off from game action Tuesday. T hey seemed energized f rom the opening tip against t he Heat, racing out to a 17point lead in the first half. That cushion was 16 at the start of the fourth quarter thanks to all those 3s. The Heat got within 89-80 on a basket by Chris Bosh before Jameer Nelsons 3 from the corner pushed the Magics advantage back to 12 with 3:53 to play. The Heat never got any closer. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said it was a solid first effort against a Southeast Division rival they will face three more times this season. I thought we did a good job of gathering ourselves, Van Gundy said. We held our composure and nobody seemed the least bit worried. We just kept making plays. Orlando was shooting better from the 3-point line than from the field at one point in the fourth quarter. The Magic finished the night at 42 percent from the floor (35 for 83 cent (17 for 42 range. Miami shot 47 percent from the field (36 for 76 had only five 3-pointers. The Heat also held a 40-30 advantage on points in the paint, but Orlando led 23-9 in second-chance points. Andersons 3-pointer gave the Magic their biggest lead of the first half at 44-27. The Heat responded by closing the half with a 24-9 spurt including the final 12 points by Wade to go into halftime trailing by only three. Wade finished the half with 22 points, while Andersons five 3s and 24 points paced the Magic. Howard had 13 points and 13 rebounds in the opening 24 minutes. They shot the 3 extremely well and the big fella in the middle took care of his 20 and 20 once again, James said. Sometimes you have to pick your poison, but we g ave up both tonight. They are an extremely tough team to beat when they are making the 3s and the big fella is doing what he wants. Magic forward Glen Davis, who played his second game since a two-game team suspension for a verbal spat with Van Gundy, said he thought the biggest takeaway for the t eam was how it was able to stay together down the stretch and withstand the Heats late run. In the preseason, it was Davis who preached to his new teammates following his trade from Boston about howi mportant a true family a tmosphere would be to prolonged success this season. He thought Wednesday was a big step toward that. Thats what its about, taking the punch and keep fighting, Davis said. Thats what we did. We knew (Miami their run because theyre great team. But we just made sure we didnt buckle or get out of control. We stayed in control and we executed to the end. Notes: It was Howards sixth game this season with at least 20 points and 20r ebounds. ... Heat point guard Mario Chalmers missed hisf irst start of the season with a sprained left hand. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, February 10, 2012Page 3B M USSELMAN APPLIANCES; 3.639"; 4"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 5 5 3 3 6 6 DR.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunThe 7th annual Golf Fore a Cure Tournament was held under sunny skies at Sun n LakesDeer Run Course on Saturday, Feb. 4. Agreat field of 144 golfers filled the course and the Tanglewood Residents Cancer Benefit coffers. This year more than $9,000 was raised for Breast Cancer Research. The tournament, sponsored by Alan Jay Automotive Network and Edward Jones/Alan J Holmes, was meant to be fun. In that regard, it was a huge success. Novice golfers and Tanglewoods best had a great day as they enjoyed the benefit of saving strokes with the purchase of mulligans as well as three-foot lengths of string. With the string, teams could take a gimme on a second putt by using up a portion of the string. In the mens category, there were two teams at 59: Tom Digrazia, Bob Flower, Gene Hart and Mike Sharkey tied with Tommy Bell, Jim Flaitz, Walt and Barb Snyder. The ladiesdivision was won by the foursome of Linda Cirillo, Mary Beth Cordray, Bonnie Nixon and Joanne Roy who carded a 70. The couples winners were Carol and Ed Allenbaugh along with Norma and Lee Mayer who turned in a score of 56. Other prizes went to Tom DiGrazia for the longest putt on hole No. 18, a 36-footer. Linda Morsey was onequarter of an inch from the chalk line on hole No. 1, while on hole No. 15, Jan Stevenson was only an inch off the mark. Winners of the closest to the hole contests were Grant McLaughlin (No. 2 Davis (No. 8 (No. 13 Rowland (No. 18 Following the morning round of golf, lunch was enjoyed in the Sun N Lake clubhouse where prizes were presented to the winning teams. More than 30 raffle prizes were also up for grabs. Several items were auctioned off and there were four winners in the 50/50 draw.

C M Y K I take a certain amount of well deserved, if I say so myself, pride in keeping to a well organized schedule; my to-do-list. If it is on that list, I am going to do it, regardless of the difficulty attached. The trick is to get on that list which I guard with my very life. Not that I worship my todo-list, but I do reverence it with a great deal of deep personal appreciation. I think long and hard before anything appears on my todo-list. Once something is on my to-do-list, there it is for all and sundry to gape upon it. It is a deep honor for anything to be put on my to-do-list. Another reason I take my time in putting something on that list is that the only way it can come off is if I actually do it. After all, that list is not supposed to be stared at but rather to inspire activity on my part. The other night I was busy with my to do list going over each and every item with the utmost care hoping that St. Nick would soon be there. Each item on that list needs to be carefully scrutinized and sometimes even underlined for emphasis. Often I have to recalculate and sort out the items and give them new priorities. I must have been busily engaged for I did not hear the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage address me. Finally, it dawned on me that somebody, other than my inner conscience, was addressing me. I looked in her direction and said, “Huh?” “I just said,” she quipped, “what are you so intently engaged in?” “I’m working on my December to-do-list,” I said with a touch of irritation in my voice for being interrupted during such delicate meditation. “You’re working on what?” “My December to-do-list,” I said trying to get back into my sphere of supersensitive concentration. There was silence for a bit and then my residential companion broke said silence by saying, “You do know what month it is, don’t you?” With an air of sarcasm in my voice I answered, “Of coarse I know what month it is. It’s December and I’m trying to sort out my to-dolist for the month. I think I’ve got just about everything covered.” Again, there was that silence that you could cut with a butter knife if you had one on your person. “So,” she said rather thoughtfully. “You are completing your December’s todo-list. Is that right?” I grunted my approval and continued with my ultra-concentration work at hand. I really have no time for nonsensical chitchat. My time is valuable; I have work that needs to be done. I cannot be side tracked by every little noise that comes up. I take great pride in working through my to-do-list each month. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction knowing that I am actually accomplishing something and I have the records to prove it. If somebody would ever come up to me and ask me to prove that I have been busily engaged in profitable activity, all I would have to do is show them my well documented to-do-list. “I hate to bust your bubble, but…” I hate when people say they hate to do something and then they go right ahead and do it. I wanted to tell her to save herself a bucket of hate and refrain from busting my bubble, or whatever she was trying to bust at the time. Then, being the gentleman that I am, I allowed her to say what was on her mind. “I hate to bust your bubble, but it is February not December.” Now there was silence from my end of the room. Being the good-natured person that I am, I just burst out laughing. “Boy,” I said heartily, “you almost got me with that one. I’ll give that one to you.” Then I went back to my work. “But it is February,” she said more sternly than I have heard her say anything for a long time. “It is now February, not December.” I had to pause. Normally she does not play tricks on me like this. Most of the time she is an upstanding person and always tells me the truth, even when there are times I do not want to hear the truth. “You’re sure it’s February?” She smiled one of those smiles that really irritates me and simply shook her head in the affirmative. I know I am an easy turkey to pluck, but this was actually serious. With the rather stunned tone to my voice I ask, “Whatever happened to January?” It was then the laughter started. I must say it has not subsided appreciably since. She has a way of rubbing things in when I am wrong. If the tables were turned, and they never are, I would not take advantage of such a situation. I swallowed my pride, which I have had a lot of practice doing, and began to realize I had been working on a false premise. It was actually February, time had gone by so quick and I was so busy I did not realize how fast it was going. In Ecclesiastes 3:1, the man of God says, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” If you are too busy to know what time it is, you are too busy. The Rev.

You would see a group of WMU Ladies working away at cutting tables and sewing machines making dog booties. Dog booties, whoever heard of such a thing? Even as a fashion statement it seems like a silly thing to do to a dog. Not so silly, though, if you have a team of sled dogs running in the Iditarod Race in Alaska. Dog booties are a necessity for those intrepid dogs as they make their way across the snow and ice. Without them ice would build up in their paws and injure their feet. The dog booties the WMU Ladies are making, however, are not for the dogs running in the race, but rather for the people attending the race. Brenda Crim, a North American Mission Board Missionary in Alaska, was a speaker at Faith Baptist Church during the Week of Prayer for Missions last year and one of the things she talked about was the mission stations she sets up at both the start and finish line of the Iditarod every year. She told the ladies how wonderful it would be to have souvenir dog booties to use as a witnessing tool. The WMU Ladies were so impressed with Brenda and the work she is doing that they took up the challenge and managed to make 394 dog booties for last year's race. This year they hope to do even better. In addition to making the booties, the WMU Ladies also participated in a month long prayer emphasis. Every lady took one or more days in the month of March to pray for each person who would receive a bootie and for the worker that would be talking to that person. One of the items contained in each bootie was a specially designed tract that included the plan of salvation. As a souvenir bootie was handed out, the recipient was asked to either read the tract out loud or listen as it was read to them. They were also asked to promise to read it to at least one other person. As a result of this ministry, more than 40 people made decisions for Christ. Crim was thrilled to receive the dog booties from Faith Baptist last year but she said she could use hundreds more. She and her helpers see thousands of people a day during the race. If you are interested in helping Brenda with this very effective and worthwhile project, please contact her at Brenda.Crim@akmissions.com/. Lake Placid church makes impact at Iditarod Perhaps no better summary could be found than 1 Corinthians 15:10: “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” This faithful servant, Paul, realized that his very physical existence/life, spiritual life/blessings in Christ and his apostleship were all wrapped up in this amazing grace. His life as a disciple of Jesus reflected his total commitment to living and proclaiming this grace which was and is needed and available to all mankind. (Titus 2:11; Hebrews 2:9) There a three things involved in a gift: the giver, the gift itself and the receiver. One is incomplete without the other two. The amazing thing about this amazing gift is that it was in the plan of the Great I AM before creation: “who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.” (2 Timothy 1:9) Therefore, this gift is unmerited, unearned and undeserved in God's scheme of things. Since we learn best by example, the book of Acts is filled with accounts of precious souls accepting the gift of salvation through Jesus, the Christ. The conversion of the eunuch recorded in chapter 8:26-39 is a thrilling example of the power of the Good News. As the eunuch was returning to Ethiopia from Jerusalem, he was reading from the prophet Isaiah (chapter 53) regarding the one who would be offered like a sheep and lamb. Perhaps they had been discussing this very message back in Jerusalem. He was still searching for the true meaning of this prophecy. In God's providence, Philip met this serious student of the Word and beginning at this scripture, preached Jesus to him. His eyes of understanding were opened to the point that he asked, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?” Then Philip answered him by the power of the Holy Spirit, “If you believe you with all your heart, you may.” Since the evangelist preached Jesus to him (i.e. amazing grace), the eunuch came to the understanding, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” In ord er to complete his acceptance of the gift, “So he commanded the chariot to stan d still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him.” This heart stirring account closes with the observation “and he went on his way rejoicing.” True, there is nothing anyone can do to earn, merit or deserve this gift, but as we have seen in the example of the eunuch, th e gift is received by obedient believers. The Holy Spirit declares this fact: “But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.” (Romans 6:17,18) This statement of praise echoes the teaching s of the Master Teacher: “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’and do not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46) The Gift of all gifts commands the following declaration: “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift.” (2 Corinthians 9:15) Frank Parker can be reached at frankparker27@yahoo.com/.

The new tags are sponsored by the nonprofit group www.IBELIEVEsc.net as allowed under state law. The new tag is a nonpolitical way for Christians of all denominations to share their faith, said Adrian Grimes, spokeswoman for the group’s upcoming rollout of the plate. Afederal judge ruled in 2009 that “I Believe” tags that legislators created through a state law violated the First Amendment ban on establishment of religion by government. That plate featured a cross and stained glass window. The new plates show the nonprofit’s name across the top, with the letters “JC” between the image of three crosses on a hill and the license number. Aspokesman for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which was among groups that sued over the 2008 law, said it sees no constitutional problem with these plates. “As long as all groups have the same access to the process, it doesn’t raise constitutional issues,” said spokesman Joseph Conn. State law allows nonprofit groups to create specialty plates by either collecting 400 prepaid applications or making a $4,000 deposit.Fire destroys barn storing items salvaged from Ohio churchMARYSVILLE, Ohio — There’s more bad news for members of a central Ohio church where authorities believe a man drove a stolen car into the building, set a fire and watched from a nearby playground swing as the facility burned last month. WBNS-TVreports New Horizons Baptist Church in Marysville lost more when a fire was reported early Monday at a barn that contained items salvaged from the church site. The state fire marshal’s says the barn and its contents were destroyed. The fire has been ruled accidental and started in a wall near an electrical outlet. Jail records show the 30-year-old Philadelphia man suspected in the January church arson remained in custody early Monday. No injuries were reported from either fire.Drug gang banners appear in central Mexico city Pope will visitMEXICO CITY— Adrug gang unfurled banners in a Mexican city that Pope Benedict XVI is scheduled to visit next month, telling rival traffickers to keep out and keep the peace during the papal visit next month. One of the banners was signed by The Knights Templar, a violent, pseudo-religious cartel from the neighboring state of Michoacan. The cloth banners with handpainted messages were found and quickly removed on Tuesday, a few weeks after the local Roman Catholic archdiocese had issued a public plea to drug gangs not to mar the Pope’s visit with violence. “We just want to warn that we do not want more groups in the state of Guanajuato. Confrontations will be inevitable. You have been warned, New Generation, we want Guanajuato in Peace, so don’t think about moving in and much less causing violence, precisely at this time when His Holiness Benedict XVI is coming,” according to the sign. Municipal police sent a photo of the banner to The Associated Press. “New Generation” refers to a rival gang from the neighboring state of Jalisco, which is believed to be allied with the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel. The two groups, along with the Zetas, have been locked in battles in all three states.Radical Islamist sect claims Nigeria military strikes, denies sending state-run TV a messageLAGOS, Nigeria — Aradical Islamist sect has claimed responsibility for attacks on military bases in a central Nigerian city at the heart of ethnic and religious unrest in the country. Aspokesman for the sect known as Boko Haram told The Daily Trust newspaper of Nigeria’s Muslim north that it carried out Tuesday’s attacks on an army and air force base in Kaduna. Military officials say only a bomber was killed in the attack, though witnesses saw soldiers in blood-drenched uniforms. The sect also denied sending a video message aired Tuesday on the state-run Nigerian Television Authority in which they purportedly accepted an offer to negotiate for peace with the oil-rich nation’s weak central government. I Believe license plates available in SC, 2 years after ruling

This alarming trend is despite a positive decline in the prevalence of teen smoking. Smokeless tobacco includes chew, dip and a host of emerging products. In Highlands County, 8.4 percent of high school students were current smokeless tobacco users in 2010, which was a 2.1 percent increase since 2006. Statewide, the prevalence of smokeless tobacco use was 6.4 percent among high school students in 2011, which is slightly lower than the Highlands County’s average of 8.4 percent. Statewide, smokeless tobacco use among high school students increased 30.6 percent from 20052011. To help combat this deadly addiction, Tobacco Free Partnership of Highlands County and The Florida Department of Health’s Tobacco Free Florida will observe Through With Chew Week from Feb. 19-25. This national annual health observance was established by the American Academy of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery as an educational campaign designed to prevent and reduce the use of smokeless tobacco and is now recognized by public health groups across the country. The week includes the Great American Spit Out on Thursday, Feb. 23, which encourages smokeless tobacco users to plan in advance to quit using smokeless tobacco that day, or to use the day to make a plan to quit.The changing face of smokeless tobacco Traditionally, smokeless tobacco was used in the form of spit tobacco, or chew and dip. Today, there are more choices of smokeless tobacco products. Adults should be aware that many of these new products are easy to conceal and use in areas where cigarettes are banned and are cheaper than traditional smokeless and cigarettes. New tobacco products like orbs (dissolvable tobacco pellets), sticks and strips closely resemble gum, candy and breath strips. Often flavored to mask the bad taste of tobacco, these products are generally more appealing to youth. Another new product growing in popularity among youth is snus, which are small, teabag-like pouches containing tobacco that users place between their upper gum and lip. Snus does not require spitting; therefore, can be easily concealed.The dangers of smokeless tobacco“Smokeless tobacco is not a safe alternative to smoking cigarettes and the rate at which youth are using these products is alarming,” said Dr. Frank Farmer, Florida’s state Surgeon General. “Many of these young people are substituting cigarettes with smokeless tobacco in places where they can’t smoke, leading to a stronger nicotine addiction that makes it harder for them to quit. The variety and sheer volume of new smokeless products entering the marketplace that appeal to youth is equally alarming.” Due to the smokeless nature of these products, youth wrongly perceive them to be less harmful and disregard the negative health impacts these products can cause. But in reality, these products, which contain 28 cancer-causing agents (carcinogens), are dangerous to one’s health. Users of these products have an 80 percent higher risk of oral cancers and a 60 percent higher risk of pancreatic and esophageal cancer. Aside from the increased risk of cancer, the use of smokeless tobacco can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. It can also lead to other oral problems, such as mouth sores, gum recession, tooth decay, and permanent discoloration of teeth. Compared to cigarettes, smokeless tobacco products can contain more nicotine, which often leads users to nicotine addiction and dependence. In fact, the amount of nicotine absorbed from a dip of moist snuff tobacco is three to four times the amount delivered by a cigarette. Even though nicotine is absorbed more slowly from chew tobacco than from cigarettes, chew tobacco users absorb more nicotine per dose and it stays in the bloodstream for a longer time. Furthermore, evidence shows that adolescent boys who use smokeless tobacco have a higher risk of becoming cigarette smokers within four years.

Snapshots WASHINGTON (AP) —Apanel of cancer experts voted against a new use for Amgen’s Xgeva in prostate cancer on Wednesday, saying the drug’s ability to slow the spread of the disease did not translate into meaningful benefits for patients The Food and Drug Administration’s cancer drug panel voted 12-1 that the benefits of the drug did not outweigh its risks, which included bone disease in about 6 percent of patients. The FDAis not required to follow the group’s advice, though it often does. Xgeva is already approved to prevent fractures in cancerous bones, and for osteoporosis, in a different formulation called Prolia. Amgen Inc. has asked the FDAto approve the injectable drug as a preventive measure for men with recurring prostate cancer that is at high risk of spreading to the bone. At the public meeting Wednesday, Amgen scientists pointed to results of a company study showing patients taking Xgeva experienced a four-month delay in the spread of cancer to the bones around the prostate. Panelists termed this a “statistical benefit,” but not one that resulted in increased survival or higher quality of life for patients. “The effect of the studied compound is quite weak with no effect on survival or the overall course of the disease in general,” said Dr. Ronald Richardson of the Mayo Clinic. All of the panel’s physicians voted against the company’s application. The lone patient representative on the panel voted in favor. Many cancer drugs approved by the FDAdo not actually extend survival, but instead slow the growth of tumors or their spread to other parts of the body. In recent years, cancer experts have debated the meaningfulness of these measures. Panel chair Dr. Wyndham Wilson acknowledged that delaying the disease’s spread to the bone could be meaningful, but suggested the drug would have to do so for more than four months. “If it was one year we probably wouldn’t even be here today, no one is denying that that, but the magnitude here is quite low” said Wilson, a research chief at the National Cancer Institute. Panel votes against Xgeva for prostate cancer WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is taking on GOPpresidential hopeful Mitt Romney over his criticism of President Barack Obama’s birth control coverage mandate. Press secretary Jay Carney says Romney is an “odd messenger” to be attacking Obama over the issue. The mandate requires that church-affiliated employers such as hospitals or charities provide birth control coverage even if i t runs counter to their religious beliefs. Romney has accused Obama of an “assault on religion” over the issue. But Carney says a virtually identical policy is in place in Massachusetts, where Romney served as governor, and that it’s ironic fo r Romney to criticize Obama over it.

C M Y K DearPharmacist: What medications and supplements do you recommend for heart health? — J.S., Dallas, Texas Answer: Your cardiologist has to pick your medicine based on your medical history, age and individual response. Common medication categories are the diuretics, calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors and others which seek to relax blood vessels, eliminate fluid and power up the heart beat. Today I’ll focus on two important supplements to consider for heart health, and there are more articles about this posted at my website. First and foremost, please commit to exercising to the degree your doctor permits. It turns on life extension genes, no matter how sedentary you’ve been. Consider supplementing with Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10. This is naturally produced in every cell of your body, and it’s mostly concentrated in the heart so supplementing gives your heart a helping hand. CoQ10 is also found in your brain. It’s directly involved in the production of energy (ATP) which allows for cellular respiration; it keeps your heart “breathing” and/or beating in perfect rhythm. People with angina experience chest pain as the cells die in the heart and suffocate because they are not making ATP, meaning there is no cellular respiration. In other words, the ailing heart is literally starving for CoQ10 which generates oxygen. There are hundreds of studies that demonstrate it supports heart health and a healthy cardiac rhythm. CoQ10 maintains muscle health when taking certain cholesterol medicines and female hormones. I recommend taking about 200 mg of CoQ10 (or 100 mg Ubiquinol) daily. I also recommend fish oil supplements because they provide “omega 3 fatty acids” which are healthy fats. They are essential for optimal health even though the human body does not manufacture them. Omega-3s are also great at reducing inflammation-causing compounds like prostaglandins. Luckily we can supplement with omega-3 fish oil products, some of which are “burpless” and easy to swallow. Omega 3s are well researched, and incredibly beneficial for a healthy heart. The American Heart Association has dietary recommendations for EPAand DHA(the two primary hearthealthy compounds present in fish oils). They suggest at least two servings of fatty fish each week, or 500 mg of EPAand DHAif you do not eat fish. If you’ve had previous heart concerns or cardiovascular disease, then consume 1 gram EPAand DHA. Those wishing to maintain healthy triglycerides can consume two to four grams of EPAand DHAper day. Check with your personal health care professional because some medications interact with higher doses of fish oil. Even the FDA allows a “supportive” claim regarding omega 3s and heart health benefits. So if you love someone, skip the flowers and candy at Valentine’s. Think in terms of fish and CoQ10, it does a tremendous amount to help circulation and can even mend a broken heart if you know what I mean. I hear you, the flowers and candy are far more romantic... but my ideas will keep your love alive a lot longer.

AHarvard professor thinks the next big thing will be people inhaling their caffeine from a lipstick-sized tube. Critics say the novel product is not without its risks. The product, called AeroShot, went on the market late last month in Massachusetts and New York, and is also available in France. Asingle unit costs $2.99. Biomedical engineering professor David Edwards said AeroShot is safe and does not contain common additives, like taurine, used to amplify the caffeine effect in common energy drinks. Each grey-and-yellow plastic canister contains 100 milligrams of caffeine powder, about the amount in a large cup of coffee, plus B vitamins. But Democratic U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York wants the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to review AeroShot, saying he fears it will be used as a club drug so that young people can drink until they drop. Schumer's national press secretary did not immediately respond to calls for comment. FDAspokeswoman Siobhan DeLancey declined to comment, saying the agency will respond directly to Schumer on the matter. Edwards said Schumer's comments are understandable in the context of developments over the last few years, when students looking for a quick and cheap buzz began consuming caffeine-packed alcoholic drinks they dubbed “blackout in a can” because o f their potency. But he said AeroShot is no t targeting anyone under 18 and it safely delivers caffeine into the mouth, just like coffee. “Even with coffee — if you look at the reaction in Europe to coffee when it firs t appeared — there was quite a bit of hysteria,” he said. “So anything new, there's always some knee-jerk reaction that makes us believe ‘Well, maybe it's not safe.’” Once a user shoots a puff of calorie-free AeroShot into his or her mouth, the lemonlime powder begins dissolving almos t instantly. Getting caffeine fix as easy as taking deep breath

C M Y K By CHRISTYLEMIRE A PMovie Critic Forgettable probably i snt a word youd expect to u se to describe a film starring D enzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson and Sam Shepard. But unfortunately, t hats one of the most apt w hen pondering Safe H ouse. D irected by Daniel E spinosa from a script by David Guggenheim (not to be confused with An Inconvenient Truth directorD avis Guggenheim), this is a f renetically paced jumble of s haky-cam tricks and quick e dits, dizzying car chases and deafening shootouts. Youd be forgiven for mistaking it for yet another action thriller from Tony Scott, given that it bears his aesthetic markings as well as the presence ofW ashington, his usual star. T his time, Washington plays the notorious Tobin Frost, a brilliant former CIA operative whos turned traitor, selling secrets to any nation or enemy cell willing to buy them. After years ont he run, he turns himself in at the American embassy in Cape Town, South Africa. Hes then taken to the local agency safe house where Reynolds, as the ambitious Matt Weston, is its bored, rookie minder. Matt longs to prove himself and see some real action in the field, and he gets it sooner than he expects when the house comes under a vicious, heavily armed attack and he and Tobin must go on the run together. Farmiga, Gleeson and Shepard play the suits back in the United States who are tracking their whereabouts and wondering whether theyre in cahoots. But everyone here is a potential rogue, because red herrings and double crosses abound; its a tactic meant to keep us guessing and (theoretically) distract us from the fact that the movie doesnt have anything novel to do or say during its overlong running time. U.S. intelligence agents waterboard Tobin soon after bringing him to the house to get him to divulge what he knows (theres a potentially damaging file at stake). Initially, this seems like the films attempt to shine a light on a divisive interrogation technique, but ultimately, Safe House reveals itself to be more interested in bombastic, bloody thrills than provocative, analytical thought. Washington maintains his usual formidable presence but remains very much in his comfort zone. Sure, hes playing a bad guy but hes never pushed into functioning as a complete villain, and his banter as the cynical old pro opposite the young, idealistic Reynolds recalls his Oscar-winning work in raining Day. Hes smart and charming; he also may ber ight about some of his more untrustworthy colleagues. W hen he finally shaves off his shaggy, graying hair and goatee and flashes that dazzling smile of his, hes once again the safe Denzel wek now and love. Reynolds, meanwhile, looks discombobulated most of the time. Its a total waste of his charisma althoughh e does give it his all physically in a demanding, bruising role, which includes appearing shirtless within the first minute or so of the film.Journey 2: The Mysterious Island Theres little mystery to this island. This 3-D sort-of sequel wears its formula-fordollars purpose with pride, delivering a dash of cinematic nonsense that represents Hollywood calculation at its shrewdest and most shameless. Again poking Jules Vernes remains with a sharp stick, the producers of the 2008 hit Journey to the Center of the Earth present their second modern take on the 19th-century fantasists wild stories. And Mysterious Island is every bit the amusement park ride cloaked as a movie that the first Journey was, the new flick stranding a misfit band of adventurers on Vernes lost island of freakish creatures. Dwayne Johnson stars this time as stepdad to a youth (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first movie) whose family has discovered Vernes sci-fi stories were true. Joining them as they rush from giant lizards and electric eels are Michael Caine, Luis Guzman and Vanessa Hudgens. Director Brad Peyton oversees a collection of impressive but annoying visuals, serving up gimmicky 3-D thats continually trying to poke things in your eye. Rated PG for some adventure action and brief mild language. 94 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. David GermaineRampart The crazy eyes and idios yncratic drawl of Woody Harrelson are enough to carry this dirty cop study, bute ven such powers as those cannot make engaging this w eary L.A. noir. Without Harrelsons inherent intrigue, the heavy-handed provoca-t ions of Rampart would be difficult to suffer. But Harrelsons intense and comm itted performance keeps Oren Movermans film movi ng, even while the grim and overdone story wallows affectedly. Harrelson plays police officer Dave Brown in 1999L os Angeles, in the notoriously scandal-plagued Rampart division. The film from Moverman (who directed Harrelson to an Oscarnominated supporting performance in 2009s TheM essenger) examines the nature of a thoroughly corr upt cop like Brown. Brown has two ex-wives (Cynthia Nixon and Anne Heche, both looking lost) who are sisters and neigh-b ors, with whom he has two daughters (Brie Larson, Sammy Boyarsky). When confronted by superiors or lawyers (Sigourney Weaver,S teve Buscemi), Brown responds with a hyper-literate torrent of dubious legalese and moral equivocation. Harrelson dominates the picture, but Browns unraveling feels increasingly unrealistic and uninteresting. Rated R for pervasive language, sexual content and some violence. 108 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. Jake Coyle www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, February 10, 2012Page 13B D earAbby: There is an ongoing issue between my husband and me.

T hey flash their headlights and tailgate us, trying to get him to move over intot he right lane so they can pass, but Jon refuses to y ield. If they start to pass us on the right, he will speed up and race them so they cant get ahead of him. He says hes teach-i ng them a lesson. I have told my husband r epeatedly that these games are dangerous and they scare me. Not only couldw e get into an accident, but we could get into an ugly c onfrontation or worse. I am terrified in these situations and he knows it, but h e continues. I try to drive as often as possible, but I cant see as well at night asI used to, so Jon drives at night or when were goingl ong distances. With the price of gas and considering the inconvenience and inefficiency, it doesnt make sense to go in sepa-r ate cars. Do you have any suggestions? On a Collision Course in Houston D earOn a Collision Course: Jon should be told that impeding the flow of traffic is a very dangerous practice. His childishb ehavior could incite road rage, and it is everyones responsibility to minimize instances in which road rage can occur. C ontact the Department of Public Safety to get a copy of the Texas Drivers Handbook. That way you can show Jon in black and white that his behavior is not only wrong but dangerous. While some husbands are not receptive to a wifes comments about their driving, most will listen to what a state trooper has to say about good driving practices versus bad ones. Let's hope it doesnt come to that. And one more word of advice: Continue being the d river as often as possible. Your lives could depend on it.

Martin commented on Twitter about a commercial during the Super Bowl that showed soccer star David Beckham in underwear: If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckhams H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation said the remark advocated violence against gays. Martin said that he was making a joke about soccer and that he doesnt support violence against anyone. Martin also tweeted: Who the hell was that New England Patriot they just showed in a head to toe pink suit? Oh, he needs a visit from (hash Martin later issued an apology.
