The qualifying period has ended. I only had two candidates: Ray Royce and Steve Bastardi, said Town Clerk Arlene Tuck onF riday. Therefore,the Town of Lake Placid will not hold an election April 3,T uck added. Despite the long m eetings,I really think we are mak-i ng a difference, and I feel like there is a lot left to accomplish,Royce told the News-SunF riday. We are working on the regional utilities and the LDRs (Land Development Regulations),we arew orking with the county to establish county-wide fire suppression. We may sometimes be long windedbut I feel like we are making a difference in the long run. I guess it shows you are doing some good when no one feels they need to run against you,Royce added. Honestly,during my first election,I had to go door-to-door. Some would invite you in and some would just say thank you and close the door. But I got to meet a lot of people and hear some real concerns. That made a difference for me. Bastardi was not available for comment at press time. Both candidates will be sworn in before the April town council meeting,according to Royce. No vote needed in Lake Placid Nobody files to run against Royce, Bastardi Bastardi Royce News-Sun photo by SAMANTHA GHOLAR Soup Up the Arts guests choose from hundreds of bowls at the 10th annual event Thursday afternoon.

Chapter 12 is also known to developers as the Highlands County Land Development Regulations, and is key to helping housing and business startups, according to commission chair Jack Richie. e are making some great changes,said Richie. It is our goal to make it faster and easier for construction to start on new projects. e asked staff to reduce the time it takes to review several items and that will help development move forward,Richie said. Most of the changes reduces the requirements for county staff to complete items like concurrency clearance,archaeological clearance or preliminary site plans by five days.

C M Y K B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Cara Dunford, a reading resource coach and teacher at HillGustat Middle School, is them ost recent district educator to earn a National Board for P rofessional Teaching Standards certification. She is the 50th full-time t eacher in Highlands County to accomplish and pass the d ifficult process. Three substitute teachers have as well. According to the boards w ebsite, since 1987, more than 97,000 teachers nationwide have been so certified a large number, but a small percentage. T he process is demanding and takes months. The applicant has to produce four entry portfolios. Each entry must include a1 5-page paper reflecting on the lesson plans submitted, h ow well students understood and integrated the les-s on, and a self critique of what worked well and what didnt. For example, an applicant has to show a sample stu-d ents progress complete with work product, then analyze the students improvement over time, explaining the strategies used and whyt hey were chosen. ou have to show youre involved, doing things above and beyond the ordinary Dunford said. In addition to being a Florida Reading Initiative trainer and a curriculum leader at Memorial Elementary School, Dunford has been very successful at winning grants that enhanced instruction at least one every year since 2007 when she joined the district as an elementary teacher, mostly teaching kindergarten or first grade. She also earned a masters degree and a specialist degree in educational leadership, is working on her reading endorsement, and plans o n a Ph.D.. Finally, the applicant has to take a four-hour standardized test. Dunford had to go to Orlando for the exam. There is a high failure r ate, Dunford said, referring to the entire process, not just the exam itself. The format is very exact, Dunford said. Not only do all instructions have to be carr ied out precisely as asked, even the pages submitted have to be in the right order. The slightest deviation, and the application is rejected. I realistically couldnt have done the format correctl y if two of my friends, Courtney Floyd and Ashley Cloverhouse, hadnt men-t ored me, Dunford said. Floyd and Cloverhouse are b oth national board certified. Dunford thanks her friends by paying it forward and b ecoming a reading coach to other teachers. I now teach teachers. I analyze student data and provide professional develop-m ent. I help develop lesson plans, give advice, reassurance and relieve stress.

Did you know theres an electric car inside the Historical Society? Yes, Sebring was ahead of the curve! In 1974, the Sebring-Vanguard Corp. f actory began mass production of the electric CitiCar at the Sebring Airport facility. More than 2,500 were produced from 1974-1978. At first, 10 cars were produced daily. The vehicles would go2 6 miles per hour and would travel between 30 and 40 miles between electric charges. They didnt sell because 26 mph was just too slow. They added two batteriese ach and that increased top speed to 38 mph and the cars began to sell at a cost of under $3,000. The car at the Historical Society, donated by James and Lola Adams in 2006, attracts visits by electric car enthusiasts, teenagers thinking the car is cute,retired vehicle engineers and peo-p le wanting to know the history of how such a project developed in a small town like Sebring. The history behind Sebring is most f ascinating, and if you havent had a chance to visit with Archivist Carole Goad at the Sebring Historical Society, you are really missing out. Located at 321 West Center Ave., behind thel ibrary, the Historical Society is open to the public Monday through Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can also join them at their next quarterly luncheon Saturday, April 28, at noon.

I dont remember ever complaining to my mother aboutt hem, not even when the fare for the day was a p eanut butter sandwich. My moms attitude on lunch was eat it or go hungryw hich didnt leave a lot of room for complaints. W hen John and James were growing up, I sometimes sent them to schoolw ith a bag lunch, though as they grew older and harder to please I resorted to simp ly giving them money to buy whatever the school w as selling for lunch. Yes, I realize this takes points off my Good Mom score, but it made life easier for me and both boys emergedf rom the experience healthy and whole, so I dont feel quite so guilty about it. I was never called into the school to explain my choice of fare for the boys.W hen I was young, no one ever went poking into my l unch bag to check up on what my mom was feeding me or my siblings. It was assumed that parents were smart enough to providet heir kids with a decent meal. Times have apparently changed. According to an article at www.carolina-j ournal.com and other sites, someone is inspecting preschool lunches and replacing them if they dont meet up to certain standards. I am not kidding. According to the article, The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all preschool facilities to serve lunches that meet USDAguidelines. If a child brings a lunch from home that doesnt, the facility is required to supplement the meal so that the guidelines are met. What are these guidelines? They consist of one serving each of milk, meat, and grain, and two servings of vegetables and/or fruit. Keep this in mind, it gets important later. This came to a number of peoples attention because someone checking out lunchboxes at an elementary school in Raeford, North Carolina on Jan. 30 came across a lunch they deemed unfit according to the guidelines. T he lunch consisted of the following: a turkey and c heese sandwich, a banana, some potato chips and apple juice. The preschoolg irl who brought the lunch was told it wasnt nutrit ious and was instead given a school lunch to eat from which she consumedt hree chicken nuggets. The school sent the offensive lunch back home w ith the girl along with a bill for the school lunch of $ 1.25. The mother, who is nameless in the article, was outraged. She wrote a complaint to her state represen-t ative, whose office is checking it out. School officials also were investigating. Let me point out that by their own standards, the bag lunch brought tos chool that day was appropriate. It had servings of g rain, meat, dairy, and fruit. This isnt candy and soda were talking about here. And if I may dare to a sk what is the government doing poking into a kids lunchbox anyway? What business is it of theirs what is in there?W here is their constitutional authority to tell a parent what to give a kid for lunch? I am all for good nutrition, despite what I choose to eat at times. I am NOT for the government sticking their noses where they dont belong. And that means our kids lunches. Whats next? Will food inspectors go door to door to examine our refrigerators and cupboards? Will our grocery lists be checked out? Just how far will this desire to take care of us go? Things like this make me shake my head. Do we really want a federal government that goes to this level in the name of taking care of us? I know I dont. Im not so sure about my fellow Americans.

A threat to the public, tourismEditor: Abuse by the public servant, our F lorida State legislators, land grabs by our large landowners is not accepted by the voting public. Defeat HB1103 and SB1362; they are thefts of public property for the very few. Lawmakers want to turn public waters into private property. This legislation will lead to barbed wire and no trespassing signs, keeping Florida kayakers, canoeists, boaters, bird watchers, hunters and sports fishermen away from their favorite places at the edge of our lakes and rivers, warns the Florida Audubon Society. The legislation, HB1103 and SB1362, is being pushed by agricultural interests and large property owners who stand to see their holdings increase under a lower water mark definition. Boaters could be arrested for standing on the shore fishing, hunters could get arrested for hunting in marshes that dry in low water seasons. Floridas definition of the ordinary high water separates public from private lands has stood legal muster for decades, taken from an editorial from the Gainesville Sun and needs repeating. It is also a threat to Floridas tourism industry, Floridas largest industry. The tourism industry depends on its public access to its many lakes and waterways and wetlands. Lets protect people and animal rights, animals that exist no place on earth other than on the Lake Wales Ridge area. They draw people from all over the world to see our beautiful state. Stop the drainage and drawdown of Floridas public waters to enrich the few. Stop HB1103 and SB1362. Billie E. Jewett SebringLake Jackson needs helpEditor: Where is the water in lake Jackson? Sebrings jewel is now sebring's black eye. Its beauty and family recreation is gone. Property values, lost business revenue and the attraction for future residents is non-existent. I called every human being in the county that may have some knowledge on the mystery, no answers. Forget trying to attract industry and airport commerce. No one will come. Its a embarrassment to our community. I am starting a website soon, www.savelakejackson.com/. Paul Gaetano SebringOffering answersEditor: In letters to the editor on (Wednesday) Feb. 15, Michael Smith asked some religious questions. If he will contact me via e-mail ( fbcollyouth@aol.com) I will answer his questions Scripturally. Pastor George C. Parsons Lake Placid BouquetBlue Lagoon a slice of heavenEditor: Dear Highlands County and surrounding area: Do you like good food? If you do, go to the Blue Lagoon, 4120 U.S. 27 N., in Sebring (471-6001 to the car wash. My wife and I ate there the other night and had hot, peel-and-eat shrimp we thought we were in the Keys. They were the best shrimp ... so succulent and delicious. We also had a great salad and some fried waffle sweet potatoes. The next best thing about our meal was the price. It was so reasonable. Be sure to tell Rob (and/or Bob sent you. Its a little slice of heaven. Now, great, new excited customers, Donn and Judith Goodwin Sebring It is a balanced budget, certainly, but it is largely balanced on the backs of the poor, the sick and the young. A t first blush, the $1 billion increase for public schools seems impressive, until you consider that just last year the Legislature cut $1.35 billion from school budgets. Per student support for education has b een in steady decline for the last five years, and a $1 billion increase wont b egin to make up that deficit. The House budget contains an 8 percent tuition increase for state universi-t ies. But it also cuts general revenue support for higher education by 6 perc ent. So, arguably, university students will be expected to pay more while receiving less. But the worst thing about the House b udget, and the Senates yet to be approved version, are the deep cuts in funding for so-called safety net hospitals, like Shands at UF, that provide the bulk of charity care for low income and poor Floridians. S hands alone stands to lose upward of $60 million in Medicaid funding. In a c lassic case of wishful thinking, lawmakers are hoping that at least some of the state funding cuts for hospitals willb e restored by local taxes. But as state Rep. Chuck Chestnut III, D-Gainesville, p ointed out, Shands at UF is not like o ther large Medicaid providers. Shands at UF has no local tax support to buy back these cuts. Nursing homes, mental health treatment center and drug abuse programsa re also on the chopping block. Its clear that the Legislatures main priority this election year is to pass out yet another no-new-taxes budget. Even proposals to begin collecting sales taxeso n online purchases (which are already legally owed but seldom paid) are being ignored. But the budgets were seeing in both the House and Senate by no means represent a responsible approach to fundingt he basic necessities of a large, modern state. L awmakers have been hacking away at the state spending for five years straight. They have finally hit rock bot-t om, but theyre still digging. A n editorial from the Gainesville Sun. At rock bottom and still digging There is very little to cheer about in the $69.2 billion budget approved by the F lorida House. It is a balanced budget, certainly, but it is largely balanced on the backs of the poor, the sick and the young.

C M Y K do Jan. 24,just nine months after another devastatings eries of tornados swept through the same area. N iel Matheis has become increasingly involved in thep roject and is working with the students along with others in the community and congregation to go above and beyond the call of duty. My best friend and I wanted to do something more,said Matheis. The duo took on the challenge of collecting suppliest o take on the trip to Birmingham. Matheismother and her boyfriend have been a vital part of the strategy to provide supplies to those in need by providing the boys with a 53-foot trailer to collect items for transport. e are starting to collect items for people that were affected by the tornado. We are working with a foundation called The Foundry and they work closely with the Red Cross. The Red Cross pre-screens families to see if they need assistance, explained Matheis. A number of items are needed to supply the families in Birmingham during the groups trip. Things such as clothing (men,women, kids),baby supplies,water, toiletries (deodorant,toothpaste,etc.),and used working appliances. e arent expecting people to go out and by a new appliance to donate. If you have something thats working and you arent using,a washer,dryer,things like that,then it would be great. The big thing we need is kidstoys. These families lost everything and while they are in shelters waiting to have their homes rebuilt the kids are bored; we dont want them to be sitting around twiddling their thumbs. We want them to still be able to be kids, Matheis said. Members of the congregation have backed Matheis and the youth groups mission. Donations and services have been provided to ensure that this project becomes a reality. ve had a member of the congregation donate the warehouse space where the items and the trailer are being stored. If you have something that you want to donate but you are unable to get it down here to us,we have church members who are organizing things to be picked up,Matheis said. The students will be collecting items and donations every weekend until they leave for Birmingham on March 10. The drop off location is at the old Atlantic Diesel warehouse on County Road 621 in Lake Placid. Students will be present from 10 a.m. until3 p.m. every Saturday and 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. every Sunday.The last day to make donations or contributions is March 5. The group has set things in motion to bring hope back to the lives of those who lost everything. First we will drop off all the items at the Foundry. The next day we are hostinga block party in a community to get everyone out and involved.

Soup Up the Arts a super success again Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Challengers submitted writ-t en arguments Friday asking the Florida Supreme Court to reject the Republicancontrolled Legislatures plan to redistrict itself whileA ttorney General Pam Bondi urged the justices to conduct an extremely limitedreview. The Florida Senate also filed a brief arguing the maps should be approved and joining Bondi in suggesting that challengers, instead,be required to make more detailed claims in lower courts. The justices should presume the validity of the Legislatures work,not attempt to find a perfect plan and approve the maps unless there is obvious, facial error,Bondi wrote. A brief submitted by the Florida Democratic Party also asked the justices to allow parties to file subsequent challenges if they decide they dont have enough time to conduct a complete review. Bondi,a Republican, s ubmitted the plan to the Supreme Court on Feb. 10, which began a 30-day review period. Oral argument is scheduled for Feb.2 9,just 10 days before the justices must make decision. The arguments focus on whether the Legislature has complied with an anti-gerrymandering amendment that voters placed in the Florida Constitution in 2010 through a citizen initiative. They also approved a second Fair Districts amendment that covers congressional redistricting. Both prohibit lawmakers from intentionally drawing maps to favor or disfavor incumbents and political parties. They also protect minority voting rights, require districts to be compact and say that existing political and geographic boundaries should be followed if feasible.

C M Y K teachers in off the ledge, she said. Dunford said she began the application process in August of 2010 and turned in her completed packet in November of 2011. She learned of her success in January. My goal was to become a nationally certified teacher even before I knew I wanteda masters, she said. Back then the district paid the cost of application ($2,500 full. As life happens, Dunford began work on her masters first. It took three years to complete what with fulltime teaching and a young son at home. The delay, however, cost her. I watched the stipend slowly disappear, she said. s ironic that the year Florida adopted the national standards is the same year the national board educatio n stipend was cut. The stipend, however, is not what motivated her. She teaches for the love and reward of teaching. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, February 19, 2012Page 7A DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; cornerstone hospice; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 4 4 2 2 0 0 MARTIAL ARTS (pp top rhp ; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 4 4 3 3 8 8 JD FINANCIAL; 3.639"; 4"; Black; make good 2/19,22; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 7 7 0 0 5 5 4 4 Bavarian Wunderkinds playa t clubSEBRING The S ebring Recreation Club will host the Bavarian Wunderkinds band alongw ith its annual Germanfest today.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comSEBRING Looking for a way to hang on to your V alentines bouquet forever? Endearings jewelry may be just the thing you need. C reated by Hawaii native, Dawn Shaedon, Endearings i s a unique idea that allows customers to have a piece of one moment or one speciald ay for a lifetime. Shaedon creates one-of-ak ind jewelry by drying out flower petals from Valentines Day bouquets, wedding bouquets, anniversaries or any other speciald ay that may come up. I started doing this in H awaii. Afriend of mine got me started in Los Angeles when I lived there. Ive beeni n Sebring for three months now, said Shaedon. P etals from flowers are dried and then placed into a transparent case mold where S haedon freezes them in time. Once the molds are dry and hardened, Shaedon uses tools and materials to transform the mold into earrings. Its a wonderful idea. Everywhere I go I get compliments on my earrings, women always ask me whereI got my earrings from, S haedon said. The process to creating the e arrings is a bit long, but Shaedon takes her time and is c areful with the precious pieces that go into the product. A long with flower petals, Shaedon creates earrings from other everyday itemst hat people may want to preserve. L ace, animal fur and hair are a few other things that can be transformed into ap air of earrings for any occasion. I can take a piece of lace from a dress or a bridal veil and make them earrings too. Also you can do fur from your dog and things liket hat, Shaedon said. The earrings come in a v ariety of shapes rectangle, teardrops, hearts and circles all of which are avail-a ble to create the molds and earrings for customers. You can take an item thatll be put away in a scrap book or thrown away and m ake it wearable forever. Thats why I call them Endearings. Im a real romantic, sentimental person. For me to be able to provides omething from a moment in a day that can be cherished and kept forever, it makes me happy, Shaedon said. Endearings has been feat ured at local craft and art shows and festivals the last c ouple months as Shaedon h as been building up her customer base. Shaedon feels the uniqueness and the sentimen-t al value of the product is the most important thing about h er business. Interested customers can contact Shaedon at her home o ffice to place an order. ou can just take a couple of flower petals and seal them in an envelope and get them to me and I create thee arrings, Shaedon said. The earrings are priced at $20 a pair. Currently Shaedon is working on building her Endearings websitea nd can be reached by phone at 382-6565 or 808-2033 804.

Unlikely magazine subscriptions or cheap prizes signs they may be targets oft elemarketing or get-richq uick schemes. Seemingly unnecessary home improvements; or conversely, signs that they can't a fford needed repairs. Uncharacteristically lavish spending on vacations, new cars, etc. If your parents initially are reluctant to share theirf inancial and legal informat ion, tell them youre working on your own financial planning (budgeting, creating a will, retirement sav-i ngs, etc.) and would like t heir advice. That will lead naturally to discussions about their own plans. Or, bring in an impartial party, such as an attorney, financial planner, social worker or trusted friend to guide the conversation. Offer to help your parents organize their finances. Set up and periodically update files containing: Details of all major possessions and relevant paperwork (such as propertyd eeds, car registration, jewelry, etc.). Outstanding and recurr ing debts (mortgage, car loan, medical bills, utilities, e tc.). All income sources, including Social Security, pension, 401(k ment accounts and savings. Bank accounts, credit cards, safe deposit box contents and insurance policies, including password, agent and beneficiary information. Will, trust, power of attorney, health care proxy,f uneral plans and other documents showing how they w ant their affairs handled. Contact information for their lawyer, accountant, broker, financial planner, insurance agent and othera dvisors. Afew other tips: Help your parents create a detailed budget so they always know how muchm oney is coming in and going out. Free budgeting tools are available at www.mymoney.gov, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (www.nfcc.org), www.mint.com, and Practical Money Skills for Life, a free personal financial management program run by Visa Inc. (www.prac-t icalmoneyskills.com/budgeting). If youre helping pay or p rocess their bills, request that duplicate account statem ents be sent to you as well, so you can quickly spot any errant activity. Set up automatic bill payment for utilities ando ther monthly bills to avoid late payment fees. Just make sure the account is always sufficiently funded. Many retirees must file quarterly tax returns a daunting task for anyone. Offer to help with the paper-w ork; or, if they work with an accountant or tax preparer, ask to attend the next m eeting. Dont be afraid to ask y our parents if they need help managing their finances. Chances are, in 30 years youll thank your own kids for the offer.

C M Y K E fforts made by Drug Free Highlands, local law enforcement, the Florida Hospital Parish Nurses with local drug take back pro-g ram Operation Medicine Cabinet have shown great success. With just three take back days since September 2010, HighlandsC ounty residents have disposed of about 2,300 pounds of prescription and non-prescription medications. The most recent study, r eleased in 2011, shows that past 30-day use of any i llicit drug has remained unchanged. However, a number of drug categoriess howed statistically significant reductions for some a ge groups, one of them being 10th graders that used Vicodin in the past year. This number dropped from 7.7 percent in 2010 to5 .9 percent in 2011. This data reiterates that raising c ommunity awareness, participating in disposal programs and simply educatingp eople on the dangers of prescription drug abuse m ay not be a solution to the epidemic, but is certainly making an impact. A s plans roll out for an upcoming Operation Medicine Cabinet, set for S aturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Drug Free H ighlands and local law enforcement have something else up their sleeve. After hearing success stories about Winter HavenP olice Departments grip on prescription drugs, were itching to try something that will likely decrease prescription drug abuse in Highlands County. Permanent drop boxes were placed in the WinterH aven Police Department about eight months ago due to a noticeable increase inp rescription drug traffic and use in the area. Since then, 2 19 pounds of prescription medications have been disposed of, which may nots ound like much, but only pills are being discarded, n ot the bottles they come in. Drug Free Highlands gets numerous calls from people asking what to do with theirm edications until the next Operation Medicine C abinet. We know that people are storing their medications until the next pill dropa nd we know this because of the great volumes of pills t hat are purged at these events. D rug Free Highlands and Highlands Countys law enforcement agencies are taking matters into our own hands and are looking top lace permanent drop boxes in the law enforcement offices in Highlands County. The drop boxes are very s imilar to a mailbox/safe in which pills can be deposited. Citizens can drop off their unwanted medications within seconds with no questions asked and no longl ines. Law enforcement sees this to be an extremely bene ficial tool, especially since thousands of pills have been collected since the lastp ill drop event in October. Drug Free Highlands w ould like to extend this opportunity to support our efforts to all community members and businesses. If you are interested in mak-i ng a donation, or have further questions please feel f ree to contact Amanda Sherley at 441-5101 or 3822138. Amanda Sherley is project coordinator for Drug FreeH ighlands. Guest columns are t he opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the NewsSun staff. Special to the News-SunWhat do you think of the medical services in Highlands County? Are they available? Are they accessible? Are they effective? What do you think of the quality of life in Highlands County? From now until the end of April, residents can make their views known in the first county-wide Community Health Survey. The survey is sponsored by the Community Health Improvement Planning Partnership (CHIP Highlands County and the Highlands County Health Department. It is anonymous and confidential. It is also easy to complete. Respondents are asked to answer 25 multiple-choice questions about the health care services they have sought and used, the ease or difficulty they have had obtaining those services, and any barriers they have encountered due to the unavailability of the services or due to their own inability to access or afford the services. The results of the survey will be published in June and will be incorporated into the Highlands County 2012 Community Health Improvement Plan, which will be published in the fall. To take the survey in English, go to https://www.surveymonkey.c om/s/highlandshealthsurveyenglish/. The survey is also available in Spanish. The News-Sun also has the link to the survey on its website www.newssun.com/. For those without access to a computer, printed surveys are available at the Sebring Health Department, 7205 S. George Blvd.; the Avon Park Health Department, 400 South Lake Ave.; and the Lake Placid Health Department, 100 North Main Ave. For further information, call the Highlands County Health Department, 3866040.

It seems that when Myron and Linda Pickeringa rrived in Tanglewood with their fifth-wheel back in 1997, they ran into such a f ellow in Bill Stottlemeyer. In the summer of 1999, B ill went up to Indiana to visit Myron and Linda in their hometown of Kokomo, Ind. While there, Bill took ill, was taken to the localh ospital by the Pickerings and subsequently rushed by ambulance to the regional hospital some 60 miles away. He had lung cancer and got great care but didnt get back to Tanglewood untill ate in the 1999/2000 season. Putting heads together w ith Bob Weed and other neighbors, the idea was hatched to have a gathering to welcome Bill and his wife, Joan, back to the park.B ob Weed played, friends and neighbours partied and Tanglewoods Cancer Benefit was born. That first year, $350 was raised. Aftert he 2011 Benefit, the total donated for cancer research had surpassed $315,000. The Pickerings lived on either side of the little town of Windfall, Ind. and ended up high school sweethearts. They moved to Kokomo, worked for GM, raised a son and a daughter and are now t he proud grandparents of six grandchildren and one great-grandchild. In July t hey will celebrate 50 years of wedded bliss. For the m ost part, theyve lived a harmonious life. They are avid karaoke performers. Sadly, their vocals are the one thing they cant seem tod o in harmony. In 2000, they sold their house and fishing boat and hit the road. After nine years as nomads, they bought a house on Beartooth Pass where Lindas beloved ducksc an still be seen. For 15 years, Linda made and purc hased outfits for her ducks. They were certainly a talking point in the Outback for years. The ducks have been negl ected of late. It seems that more important things took over Lindas life. In June, she visited Florida Hospital for a mammogram and theyd iscovered breast cancer. She speaks highly of the local hospital. They referred her to Moffitt in Tampa where both Linda and Myron found the staff to be amazing professionals who have the human touch. Coming home from Moffitt, Linda remarked that she never b elieved she would have to make a withdrawal from t he account that had been built up through all the years of our Cancer Benefit. L inda suggests that each and every one of us who cares about people needs to g et involved in the fight against cancer. As she says, Cancer doesnt care who it strikes. Myron chimes in to say that, If its within you to help someone, jump in andd o it. He knows that what goes around comes around. Linda is doing great now. Another success story. How are they paying it forward? When they discovered that their friend, Jan Bubbles McMellon had also been diagnosed with c ancer, they took right over, drove her to Moffitt and are making sure that she gets the same great care that Linda had.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, February 19, 2012Page 7B B y JOE McDONALD APBusiness WriterB EIJING Chinese officials face a choice in Apples dispute with a local companyo ver the iPad trademark side with a struggling entity t hat a court says owns the name or with a global brand that has created hundreds oft housands of jobs in China. Experts say that means Beijings political priorities r ather than the courts will settle the dispute if it escal ates. Shenzhen Proview Technology has asked regulators to seize iPads in China ina possible prelude to pressing A pple Inc. for a payout. There have been seizures in some cities but no sign of action by national-level authorities. Proview has a strong case under Chinese trademark law,b ut that could quickly change if Beijing decides to interv ene to avoid disrupting iPad sales or exports from factories in southern China where the popular tablet computers are made, legal experts say. If this becomes political and its very easy to see this becoming political then I think Apples chances look pretty good, said StanA brams, an American lawyer who teaches intellectual property law at Beijings Central University of Finance and Economics. The dispute centers on whether Apple acquired the iPad name in China when it bought rights in various countries from a Proview affiliate in Taiwan in 2009 for 35,000 British pounds ($55,000 Apple insists it did. But Proview, which registered the iPad trademark in China in 2001, won a ruling from a m ainland Chinese court in December that it was not b ound by that sale. Apple appealed. Ahearing is scheduled for Feb. 29. My gut reaction is that many of these activities reall y could be seen as pre-settlement brinksmanship, said David Wolf, a technologym arketing consultant in Beijing. Proviews motive is money, not to shut down A pple. Shenzhen Proview T echnology is a subsidiary of LCD screen maker Proview International Holdings Ltd., headquartered in Hong Kong. Chinese news reports say Proview is deeply in debt, increasing the pressure for it to demand a substantial payout from Apple. Proview International, meanwhile, has been suspended from trading on the Hong Kong stock market since August 2010 and will be removed in June if it cannot show it has sufficient assets, business operations and working capital. In a rapid-fire series of m oves, Proview has filed a trademark-violation lawsuit t hat goes to court Wednesday in Shanghai. That deadline is likely to p rompt Apple to agree to a settlement within a few days t o avoid the uncertainty of a court fight, said Kenny Wong, an intellectual-proper-t y lawyer with the firm Mayer Brown JSM in Hong Kong. I think Apple will be under immense pressure to h ave this settled as soon as possible, he said. Obviously, it depends on the amount the Shenzhen company is asking. I n a statement, Apple said its deal with Proview covers the iPad trademark in 10 different countries, including China. Proview refuses to honor their agreement with Apple inC hina and a Hong Kong court has sided with Apple in this m atter, Apple said. Apple has pointed to a Hong Kong court ruling in July that said Proview and the Taiwan company bothw ere clearly under the control of the same Taiwanese businessman, Yang Long-san, and refused to take steps required to transfer the nameu nder the agreement. The companies acted together with the common intention of injuring Apple, the judge said. But that was not the final judgment in the case and might not be accepted by mainland courts, Wong said, because Hong Kong has a separate legal system.Apple also ran into a trademark dispute before it launched the iPhone in 2007. Cisco Systems Inc., the maker of networking hardware, had owned the trademark. MCT Customers check out the iPad on display at the Apple Store at The Village at Sanlitun shopp ing center in Beijing, China. China faces conflict of law, business in iPad row TECHNOLOGY By RAPHAELSATTER Associated PressLONDON ABritish student who stole sensitive information from Facebooks internal network was sentenced to eight months in prison Friday. Prosecutor Sandip Patel said that Glenn Mangham, 26, had hacked into the social networking giants computers from his bedroom in the northern England city of York and stole what the Patel described as invaluable intellectual property. He acted with determination, undoubted ingenuity and it was sophisticated, it was calculating, Patel told Londons Southwark Crown Court ahead of sentencing Friday. He added later: This represents the most extensive and grave incident of social media hacking to be brought before the British courts. It was not immediately clear exactly what information Mangham stole, although police said that he didnt manage to compromise any personal user data. Scotland Yard said in a statement that the breach had occurred over a short period of time in April of last year but did not divulge precisely how he managed to break into the computers. The statement said that Facebook Inc. discovered the breach in May and alerted the FBI, who traced the source of the attack back to Britain. Scotland Yards e-crimes unit raided Manghams home on June 2. The software development student pleaded guilty on Dec. 13. He had argued that he was merely trying to show the Palo Alto, Californiabased company how to improve its security, but Judge Alistair McCreath said that Manghams actions had very serious potential consequences which could have been utterly disastrous for Facebook. ou and others who are tempted to act as you did really must understand how serious this is, McCreath said. Facebook, which boasts some 845 million users worldwide, recently filed papers for its initial public offering at the beginning of this month, putting it on track to price its stock in May or June. Facebook hack lands UK student in prison for 8 months If this becomes political and its very easy to see this becoming political then I think Apples chances look pretty good.STANABRAMS l awyer, professor

The Senate approved the $143 billion measure on a 6036 vote minutes after theH ouse approved it by a sweeping 293-132 vote. Obama is expected to sign its hortly after returning from a West Coast fundraising swing. O n Friday in an appearance at a Boeing factory in Everett, W ash., Obama gave lawmakers a verbal fist bump. It is amazing what happ ens when Congress focuses on doing the right thing i nstead of just playing politics, Obama said. This was a good example, and Congress should take pride in it. I n fact, Obamas jobs agenda had politics woven into it, i ncluding campaign-style rallies and news coverage that along with the GOPpresiden-t ial primary have coincided with a boost in his poll numb ers. Under the bill, workers would continue to receive a 2 p ercentage point increase in their paychecks, and people out of work for more than six months would keep jobless benefits averaging about $300a week, steps that Obama says will help support a fragile recovery from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. I t would also head off a steep cut in reimbursements f or physicians who treat Medicare patients. The tax cuts, jobless coverage and higher doctorspayments would all continuet hrough 2012. Passage of the legislation hands Obama a victory over objections from many Republicans who oppose itb ut were eager to wipe the issue from the election-year agenda. It also clears away a political headache for HouseR epublicans, who blocked a two-month extension of the tax cut and jobless coveragei n late December, only to retreat quickly under a buzz saw of opposition from con-s ervative and GOPleaders from around the country. W ith that history, Republicans seemed ready to get the fight behind them andc hange the subject for the rest of this election year. Were dumb, but were not stupid, McCain told reporters after he voted. We did not want to repeat the debacle of last December. Itsn ot that complicated. I think everyone learned a l ot from the end-of-the-year stuff, said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Everything doesnt have to be a fight. Republicans, Reid a dded, have opposed virtually everything weve tried to do. I think they came to the c onclusion that that hasnt worked out very well, Reid said. Opposition was stronger in the Senate, whereR epublicans voted against the measure by a 2-1 margin. Five Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., opposed the measure, while 14R epublicans, including Minority Leader Mitch M cConnell of Kentucky, backed it. In the House, however, a solid majority of Republicans backed the measure despiter eservations about its $89 billion impact on the budget deficit over the coming decade. And Republicans said the f inal deal, significantly changed from a tea partybacked measure that passed in December, was the best Republicans could get. We dont control Washington. Democrats still control Washington theyc ontrol the Senate, and they control the White House, said Rep. Dave Camp, R-M ich., the top House negotiator on the measure. Adivide d government must still govern. Camp cited stricter job search requirements for peo-p le receiving unemployment benefits and other reforms to t he program as wins for conservatives. But many GOPlawmakers were upset that the measure would add to the federald eficit and doubted that it would do much to boost the e conomy. Another concern was that it cuts a payroll tax thats dedicated to payingS ocial Security benefits. Deficit spending would make u p for the lost revenue, but some lawmakers fear it would chip away at Washingtons c ommitment to the program. I cannot and I will not support legislation that extends the payroll tax holiday without paying for it, said Rep.P hil Gingrey, R-Ga. This will add $100 billion to the deficit and it will create an even greater shortfall within the Social Security trust fundt hat already has over $100 billion shortfall just in the last t wo years. Fast vote: Congress sends payroll tax cut to Obama

C M Y K LIVING C SE CTION I nside This Section Arts & Entertainment3C B est-Sellers6C Crossword2C Dear Abby2C H oroscope2C Pause & Consider2C News-Sun Sunday, February 19, 2012 1.Who votes for the Academy Awards?The more than 6,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences vote for the winners of the annual awards. Alittle more about the vaunted academy: It was originally made up of 36 members when it was organized in May 1927. Douglas Fairbanks Sr. was the first president. Membership has grown over the years, and now academy members represent 15 branches: actors, art directors, cinematographers, directors, documentary, executives, film editors, makeup artists and hairstylists, music, producers, public relations, short films and feature animation, sound, visual effects and writers. 2.Do studios campaign for awards?Studios and publicists campaign vigorously for the nominees, though the academy has clamped down in recent years on gifts and gimmicks. Now, the campaigns consist mainly of efforts to make sure voters see the nominated films s pecial showings, s creening DVDs and free admission to commercial runs of the films. So-called for your consideration ads in trade publications are also de rigueur, and have been for quite a while. In 1935, MGM was the first studio to campaign with ads in the press touting its film, Ah, Wilderness! It didnt work the movie didnt earn a single nomination.3.How many award categories are there?There are 24 categories, a big increase from the 12 awards that were handed out the first year of the Oscars in 1929. The newest category, Best Animated Feature, was added in 2001. Some awards have been eliminated along the way, including Engineering Effects; Best Director, Comedy Picture; and Title Writing, which became obsolete after the success of talking pictures.4.What about the Scientific and Technical Awards?Acommittee of about 40 experts representing the technical areas of film, including lighting and equipment, digital imaging and electronics and research, meets to evaluate entries. The committee then gives recommendations to the academys Board of Governors, which selects the winners. The Scientific and Technical Awards are presented at a formal dinner on a date prior to the Oscar ceremony.5.So how does someone become an academy member?To become a member, a candidate must be sponsored by two members of the branch for which he or she qualifies. (For example, an actor must be sponsored by two member actors.) The application then must be approved by the branchs executive committee before it goes before the academys Board of Governors. The board also caninvite members-at-large members whose craft does not fall into one of the established branches.6.How long do academy voters have to make their decisions?Nomination ballots are sent to academy members in December or January, and voters have two weeks to return them to PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the firm that has been counting the ballots since 1934. Final ballots are mailed in February, and voters have another two weeks to return them. Up to five nominations are made in most categ ories, and balloting for the nominations is r estricted to members of the academy branch concerned. (That means directors, for instance, are the only nominators for the directing award.) Acommittee of members from all branches chooses the nominations in the foreign language category. Nominees for Best Picture and final winners are chosen by all academy members.7.How long does it take PriceW aterhouseCoopers (PWC the ballots?Along time. In fact, the company says it t akes about 1,700 person-hours to count a nd verify the ballots by hand.8.Does PWC really count each ballot by hand?Yes thats why it takes so long. Once the winners are chosen, PriceWaterhouseCoopers brings two complete sets of envelopes to the ceremony by separate, secret routes. The companys balloting partn ers (there are usually two or three m emorize the list of winners as a precautionary measure they are the only people who know the winners before they are announced on the Oscars telecast. PWC partners hand the sealed envelope to the presenters just before they walk onstage. (The p artners used to hand-deliver the envelopes to the presenters onstage, originating the phrase, The envelope, please ...)9.Are all of those security measures really necessary?The academy works very hard to ensure the secrecy of the results, but it wasnt always that way. When the first Academy Awards were presented in 1929, the winners were announced three months before the ceremony. For the next decade, the academy released the list of winners to newspapers for publication at 11 p.m. on awards night. In 1940, the Los Angeles Times broke the embargo, spilling the beans to many showgoers, who read the list of winners before they even arrived at the ceremony. From then on, only Price Waterhouse (the former name of the company) knew the results before the ceremony.10.Who designed the Oscar statuette?It was designed by MGM art director Cedric Gibbons before the first awards were presented in 1929. George Stanley, a Los Angeles sculptor, brought it to life. The statuette features a knight standing on a reel of film, gripping a sword in his hands. It hast changed much over the years, except when the pedestal was made higher in 1945. The statuette stands 131/2inches tall and weighs 81/2pounds.11.What is an Oscar statuette made of?Today, its made of gold-plated britannium, a pewter-like alloy. The original statues were made of gold-plated bronze, but that was abandoned after a few years in favor of the smoother britannium. For three years during World War II, the statues were painted plaster, but wartime winners were given gold-plated metal awards when the war ended. In 1949, the statuettes began to be numbered behind Oscars heels, beginning with No. 501.12.W here are the statuettes made?Since 1983, theyve been cast, molded, p olished and buffed by R.S. Owens and Company, a Chicago awards specialty company. It takes a dozen people 20 hours to make one O scar statuette. A f ew extra awards are created each year to account for the possibility of ties or multiple recipients. Extras are stored in the academys vault until the next years ceremony.13.How do the statuettes make the trip from Chicago to Los Angeles?Believe it or not, they traveled by common carrier for many years. But in 2000, the Oscars were stolen from the loading dock. They were recovered a week later, but the academy changed its ways. Now, the statuettes travel by air, accompanied by an R.S. Owens representative.14.Is Oscar the statuettes official name?No its actually called the Academy Award of Merit. There are several theories about how it got its nickname, including that an academy librarian thought the award resembled her Uncle Oscar, and starting calling it by his name. The name was first used by a Hollywood columnist in 1934 in reference to Katharine Hepburns Best Actress win. The academy officially adopted the name in 1939.15.Can anyone attend the Oscars presentation?Yes and no. The academy offers a few hundred bleacher seats to fans who want to gawk at the stars on the red carpet. Starting with the 74th Academy Awards in 2002, the academy began requiring interested showgoers to submit applications to get one of the coveted seats. Online registration beginsin the fall at www.oscars.org, and a random drawing determines which lucky fans will getc arpet-side access. Getting inside the Kodak Theatre to see the Oscars presented isnt as easy; attendance at the awards is by invitation only. No tickets are available to the public.16.W hat year was the longest O scar show?The 74th Academy Awards, which aired March 24, 2002, hold the record for the longest show at four hours and 23 minutes. That year ABeautiful Mind won Best P icture, and Halle Berry and Denzel Washington won the top acting awards. The Oscars have changed considerably since the first ceremony, held May 16, 1929, when it took just five minutes to present the statuettes.17.H ave the Oscars ever been canceled?No, but they have been postponed three t imes. In 1938, the show was delayed for a week due to flooding in Los Angeles. The 1968 ceremony was rescheduled after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. In 1981, the show was postponed a day after the assassination attempt on President Reagan. The war in Iraq began only days before the 2003 ceremony, but the show went on, albeit a more scaled-down version. The red carpet was shortened to the area outside the Kodak Theatres entrance, and the bleacher seats were removed.18.When was the awards ceremony first broadcast on television?The 25th Academy Awards, on March 19, 1953, were the first to be televised. Before that, all the ceremonies except the first one were broadcast on the radio. The 16th Academy Awards were even broadcast overseas to American soldiers.19.Who has hosted the most Oscar shows? Bob Hope hosted or co-hosted the show a record 18 times. Billy Crystal comes in second with eight hosting gigs. 20.When did the Academy Awards stop being a banquet affair?For the first 15 years, the Oscars were presented at banquets held in Hollywood hotels. The 16th Academy Awards were held at Graumans Chinese Theater, and subsequent ceremonies were held at various theaters, including the Shrine Auditorium, the RKO Pantages Theater, the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Since 2002, the ceremony has been held at the Kodak Theatre, and it will be for the foreseeable future.

C M Y K DearAbby: Dwayne, m y boyfriend of eight years, insists on smoking in his bedroom. In our last apartment hed fall asleep with a lit cigarette and ended up burning holes in our couch, numerous blankets and pillows as well as the carpet. When we moved, Dwayne assured me he had stopped, but a month ago I noticed his blanket and mattress have burn holes and so does the carpet by his bed. We live together with our 6-year-old son and, needless to say, Im scared to death Dwayne will burn this place down. I have talked to him about it numerous times. All he does is yell and say it wont happen because cigarettes are safer now. I have discussed this with our landlord to no avail. I thought about calling social services, but I dont want to get him in trouble. I could really use some good advice. Scared For My Life in Milwaukee DearScared: Because Dwayne is unwilling to be more responsible, its time to consider your sons safety and your own. Your boyfriend is not only addicted to tobacco, he is also misguided. If cigarettes were safer now there wouldnt be burn holes in his bedding and the area surrounding where he sleeps. If moving isnt feasible, at least make sure there are working smoke detectors in your apartment and an extra one outside Dwaynes bedroom door. Frankly, it would be healthier for you and the boy if Dwayne didnt smoke at all in your apartment because the Environmental Protection Agency has classified secondhand smoke asa Group Acarcinogen. To verify this, and get further information, contact the American Cancer Society (800-227-2345 American Heart Association (800-242-8721 DearAbby: My husband died 13 years ago. Since then I have pretty much lost everything, except the grief. Recently it occurred to me that I have some photographs his siblings and nieces might like copies of. I dont want them to know where I live in a battered old trailer because Im ashamed. They are all well-to-do and never seemed to like me. No one has spoken to me since my husbands death. I dont want it to seem like Im expecting anything in return because Im not, nor do I want to see them socially. I know I dont fit in with them. Id just like to do something nice since we all loved him. From experience I think theyll find some way to misinterpret or misunderstand the gesture. Ill be hurt and, added to the depression and grief, I dont think I could handle it. What do you advise? Missing My Man in California DearMissing YourMan: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your husband. You have given me four valid reasons not to reach out to your husbands family, the most important of which is that if you get another round of rejection from them it will crush you. Thats whyI advise against it. Because they havent spoken to you or included you in 13 years, on top of the fact you never felt accepted in the first place (your words) the healthy thing for you to do is to keep your distance. However, because in all this time you have been unable to finish your grieving process, I urge you to consider grief counseling. DearAbby: We recently celebrated the milestone birthday of a dear friend with a party. In honor of the occasion we presented her with a very nice bracelet with various fabricated gemstones set in a nice silver setting. As she was identifying the names of the stones,I blurted out that they werent real because I didt want her thinking we were trying to pass them off as the real thing. Now Im afraid I might have cheapened our gift although believe me, her bracelet was not cheap. I feel like an idiot. Should I try to fix this mess or just let it be? Foot In Mouth in the southwest DearFoot In Mouth: I think enough has already been said. Whether the stones in the bracelet were n atural or man-made, the thought behind the gift was genuine.

I taught him age appropriate tasks such asp icking up his toys and organizing them in a closet in our tiny apartm enta skill that would serve him well when he lived as a bachelor in ac ompact studio apartment; and, even now in marriage. But, this one day when he was still of pre-schoola ge, I noticed that of his own accord, he had gathe red the garbage and without fanfare had taken it out to the backyard trash can. I was so proud of him for taking on another responsi-b ility without being told.I bent down to his level and h ugged and thanked him and said Id give him some money for doing this.I willn ever forget his reply. He scrunched up his face a s he pulled back to look at me. I didnt do it for m oney.I did it for love. What a wonderful world this would be if everyone acted out of love. How satisfying it would be if allp eoples consciences were tuned in to God and high standards were the norm; integrity and morality ruled; and, faithfulness,h onesty and virtue prevailed. B ut sin is still perverting truth.Selfishness a nd evil are everywhere present. However, the truth of Scripture is even more power-f ul.That is why Jesus came.So that he would overcome the world, sin andd eath.His love and kindness is incomprehensible; and, yet, when accept-e d, is life-changing. Listen to what we read in Titus 3: 4& 5, NKJV, whereP aul reminds us of Gods loving kindness and that h ow we behave is a reflection of the love of Christ in us, But when the kindnessa nd the love of God our Savior toward man a ppeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us He says that we are to con-s tantly affirm that believers in God should be careful t o maintain good works.

C M Y K By PAULDERGARABEDIAN For The Associated PressLOS ANGELES S onys Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in 3-D, starr ing Nicolas Cage as Marvel Comic character Johnny Blaze, is looking to kickP residents weekend into high gear with an expected f our-day holiday debut around $30 million. However, given the recent s pate of over-performing films at the domestic box office, the films weekend t otal could go much higher. The first installment, r eleased over Presidents weekend in 2007, debuted with a whopping $52 million for the four-day period. Sonys romantic drama The Vow, starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, led last weekends Valentines box office chart with a $41.7 million bouquet and received additional love from audiencesw ith $11.5 million on Valentines Day alone. A nd that was a Tuesday. So a four-day, second-weekend gross in the mid-$20 millions is not out of the question, with a domestic total ofn early $90 million likely by Monday night. Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in Universals Safe Housea lso exceeded opening expectations last weekend and should draw an upcoming four-day total in the low $20 million range. Twentieth Century Fox unleashes the action comedy This Means War as a sort of anti-Valentine for those ready to leave the mushy stuff behind and embrace a different kind of romance. Starring Chris Pine and Tom Hardy as two former CIAoperatives who realize they are dating the same woman played by Reese Witherspoon, the McGdirected film should draw a four-day gross in the $15 million to $17 million range. The top 5 will likely round out with either Warner Bros. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island or Foxs 3-D rerel ease of Star Wars: Episode One The Phantom Menace. B oth have the potential to earn grosses in the low teens i n their second weekend in theaters. But dont be surprised if D isneys debut of The Secret World of Arrietty sneaks in there, too. T he G-rated animated film is the American adaptation of t he 2010 Japanese smash The Borrower Arrietty which has earned more than $126 million worldwide.Colbert Report off air; Comedy Centralm um as to whyN EWYORK Comedy Centrals Colbert Report is o ff the air and its a mystery why.

C M Y K LOS ANGELES (AP Aerialists, acrobats and contortionists are among the guests at this yearsAcademy Awards. Telecast producers Don Mischer and Brian Grazer say theyve invited Cirque do Soleil to perform during the Oscar show. The three-minute performance will be among the international troupes biggest yet, said Cirque du Soleil special events director Yasmine Khalil, featuring more than 50 artists. Most Cirque shows employ 75 to 80 artists over two hours, she said. Cirque du Soleil has a show in residence at the Kodak Theatre, where the Oscars will be presented on Feb. 26, but the performance planned for the awards telecast is unique for this one evening and not taken from any of the troupes 22 productions playing around the world. Performers from those shows, however, are heading to Hollywood. Khalil says artists from Japan and Russia are flying in to participate in the Academy Awards segment. Khalil wouldnt reveal any specifics about the performance other than to say the theme is very much in line with paying tribute to the movie-theater experience and different from Iris, Cirques regular show at the Kodak Theater, which is billed as a journey into the world of cinema. Like Iris, the music for the troupes Oscar performance was composed by Danny Elfman. Cirque du Soleil troupes were reluctant to perform on television in years past because we felt as though a lot of it got lost in translation, Khalil said, but they appreciated the way their performance came across when they participated in the 74th Academy Awards. That boosted our confidence knowing that were comfortable in front of the camera, she said. Khalil and the performers have been working on their routine since before Christmas.

To identical twins Matthew and Gunnar Nelson he was simply called Pop. R icky Nelson the man for whom Life Magazine coined the phrase Teen Idol swooned audiences for more than 30 years before his tragic death in 1986.M atthew and Gunnar continue the Nelson family entert ainment dynasty and bring a multi-media concert experience to the South FloridaC ommunity College Theater for the Performing Arts Artist S eries at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 8. This is much more than a concert, Gunnar Nelson said during in a phone interview.A udiences will hear all of Rickys biggest hits, includi ng Hello, Mary Lou, ravelinMan, Its Late, Garden Party and more.G unnar said the show combines footage from The A dventures of Ozzie & Harriet. My family has actually b een entertaining for well over 100 years, he said. Not only were Ozzie & H arriet radio and TVstars, but Harriets parents were v audeville performers, and the Nelsons were in the traveling circus. Im proud to say that each Nelson has done something extraordinary dur-i ng their era. The Nelson family is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as being the only family in history with three generations of No. 1 makers. Gunnars grandfat her Ozzie and his band hit No. 1 in 1939, Ricky had two No. 1 hits and Gunnar andM atthew (performing under the rock band Nelson) hit No.1 in 1990 with their pop rock s mash Love and Affection. For Gunnar, performing Ricky Nelson Remembered has changed him as an artist. I was actually more reluctant than Matthew to perform our fathers songs, Gunnars aid. I was concerned as an original songwriter and musician of that fine line between being an artist and an act. This is an absolutely authentic show and it has broadened my artistic capab ilities. Ive found the show translate into bettering my guitar work I had to learnh ow to play like James Burton. The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet is TVs longest running live action sitcom in h istory. After starring on radio, the TVshow premiered in 1952 and aired until 1966. My favorite episode was Ricky the Drummer Gunnar said. In the episode, Ricky thought he was going to be a replacement drummer for a band, but he was actually the roadie. When the band leader learns of Rickys tale nts, he lets him drum, and eventually sing Im Walkin. The rest is TVandm usic history. The band leader in the episode was given his first m usic gig by Ozzie, Gunnar said. It came full circle. T ickets to Ricky Nelson Remembered are $33, $36 and $39. Applicable fees may apply.

By JILLLAWLESS A ssociated PressLONDON They foiled p lots and cracked Nazi codes, but Britains spies were unable to solve the mystery of Charlie Chaplins birth. A lthough the entertainer is celebrated as one of Londons most famous sons, newly declassified files reveal that BritainsM I5 domestic intelligence service found no records to back up Chaplins claimt hat he was born in the city on April 16, 1889. Uncertainty about C haplins origins linger to this day a mystery C haplin himself may have helped to nurture. The previously secret f ile, released Friday by Britains National Archives, s hows that MI5 investigated the silent film star in the 1950s at the request of U.S. authorities, who had long suspected him of commu-n ist sympathies. MI5 historian Christopher Andrew s aid the FBIs red-hating chief, J. Edgar Hoover, privately denounced Chaplin as one of Hollywoods parlor Bolsheviks. T o the spiessurprise, there was no record of the performers birth. It would seem that Chaplin was either not borni n this country or that his name at birth was other than those mentioned, MI5 concluded. Chaplins life is a D ickensian rags-to-riches story. Raised in London in a family of music-hall enter-t ainers, he moved to the United States in 1910 and became one of Hollywoodsf irst megastars with his shabby, bowler-hatted e veryman persona, the Little Tramp. In 1952, as fears of S oviet infiltration raged in the U.S., American authorit ies asked MI5 to investigate Chaplins political allegiances and personal background, including a long-standing rumor thatC harlie Chaplin was an alias and the performers t rue name was Israel Thornstein.

It also allows us the opportunity to look back at herc areer and ponder five of her best performances: Election (1999No matter what she does, n o matter how many major roles she takes on or Oscars she wins over her career,W itherspoon will always be Tracy Flick to me. And I say t hat with great affection. The balance she finds here is so delicate and difficult. Shesp laying an essentially unlikable character: a prim, s cheming know-it-all who will do whatever it takes to be voted president of her high schools student government. Adorable anda nnoying at once, she always seems to be trying too hard t o please. But Witherspoon finds the loneliness and vulnerability in Tracy, and makes us ultimately sympa-t hize with her.alk the Line (2005I n theory this is Joaquin P hoenixs movie, because hes the one playing Johnny Cash. Then along comes Witherspoon as Cashs lifelong love, June Carter, and she pretty much steals the movie right out from under-n eath him. This isnt a knock on Phoenix, whos extraordinary in capturing the energya nd essence of a towering A merican cultural figure. Witherspoon, though, just t akes over the entire screen, a nd when shes gone, you want her to come back. This w as the first truly grown-up, w omanly role shed played at this point, and she got to be not just an engaging onstage performer (she also sang and played the harpsichord) but also a wife, mother, caretaker and no-non-s ense family backbone. Oh, a nd the performance earned her the Academy Award for best actress.Legally Blonde (2001As a perky blonde sororit y girl myself, I initially mistook this for a documentary. Thats how convincing Witherspoon is as the ebullient Elle Woods, a pam-p ered campus princess who finds her true voice in the unlikeliest of places: Harvard Law School. She is just irresistible here in the classic ditzy-blonde mode, ap erfectly coifed, pink-clad force of nature, and her c harm and conviction make the fish-out-of-water antics work. As the saying goes,y ou have to be pretty smart to play dumb. In that regard, W itherspoon proved she must be brilliant. (Everyone involved should have quit while they were ahead, though, and said no to Legally Blonde 2: Red White & Blonde.)Freeway (1996W itherspoon did some of her most challenging work in her youth, and this darklyf unny, twisted take on the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale is a prime example. She stars as Vanessa, a trashy teenager who ends uph itching a ride with a youth counselor named Bob (Kiefer Sutherland of finding her grandmother. She opens up to him bute ventually realizes hes a serial killer. High-spirited and foul-mouthed, she ultimately turns the tables on him, and the sight of Witherspoon pistol-whippinga nd berating Sutherland in her girlish Southern twang is a hoot.Pleasantville (1998In a large and esteemed ensemble cast that featuresT obey Maguire, William H. Macy and Joan Allen, W itherspoon just shines. She uses her comic timing to great effect here as a sassy and subversive teenager who gets unwittingly sucked intot he television set with her twin brother (Maguire f inds herself in the idyllic, fictional 1950s town of Pleasantville. Gary Rossh igh-concept directorial debut finds its characters transforming and literally becoming more colorful, more complicated, and a loto f that has to do with Witherspoons characters inability to keep her mouth shut. Everyones better for it especially the audience. T hink of any other examples? Share them with AP Movie Critic Christy Lemire through Twitter: http://twitter.com/christylemire.

Author unknown Have you ever had the experience of raising tad-p oles into frogs? My son and I did, and it was fun and educational for both of us.W e watched as the tiny tadpoles formed legs and began to change right before oure yes. Frogs are different from m ost other creatures and they are fascinating to watch. Those of us thatr eside in Florida are fortunate because our state has t he richest concentration of amphibians in the United States, including 27 native species of frogs. These fascinating creat ures are vertebrates known as amphibians. This simply m eans that they live part of their lives in the water and the other part on land. Thew ord amphibian originates from two Greek words. Amphi means both and bios means life. All amphibians are cold bloode d, which means their body temperature is the same as the surrounding temperature. These creatures do not need to drink water to surviveb ecause all the moisture they need is absorbed into their bodies. All frogs begin life as an egg, which will hatch within3 -25 days depending on the species and the water temp erature. Usually the eggs are covered with a jelly-likes ubstance which acts as a protective coating.O nce hatched, they begin life as a tadpole orp olliwog. They dont look like frogs at thisp oint, but actually resemble little fish. They have a tail and external gills which theyb reathe through. Tadpoles feed on plants and decaying a nimal matter. As they develop, they begin to grow hind legs and then front legs.T he tail slowly retracts and disappears all together. Once t hese stages are complete, the newly formed frog hops on to the land as an adult. Frogs have strong hind legs, which enable them tol eap forward great distances. Their front legs are short and a re used to prop up their bodies so they can sit. They eat mostly insects, but willa lso munch on earthworms, minnows and spiders. Most f rogs have a sticky tongue, which it flips out rapidly when prey passes by. Once it h as captured the insect on the sticky substance, it retracts its tongue trapping the unfortunate creature. The frog then swallows its meali n one piece. They only have teeth in their upper jaw, so chewing isnt much of an option. Frogs prefer to hunt at night. F rogs are found just about everywhere except in A ntarctica. They prefer tropical climates and are generally more abundant in warmer areas. Some frogsl ove water such as ponds and streams although there are some species that never enter the water. These species live on land and onlyv isit the water when they are ready to mate. Some frogs live in trees and have tiny sticky pads on their toes to help them clingt o the surface they are climbing on. Some frogs burrow under ground ando thers cannot hop at all. Frogs that live in colder climates must hibernate. F rogs have a difficult life because they have many enem ies. Bats, heron, fish, raccoons, snakes, turtles and humans are among theirp redators. Different species of frogs have various types o f protection from these dangers. Some frogs have poison glands located in their skin. Others use camouflage and may change color whent hreatened. Some frogs are so brightly colored that anim als will avoid them because they believe they are poisonous or taste bad.S ome frogs will try to fool the predator by puffing t hemselves up with air, which makes them look too big to swallow. O ther protective tactics include foul smells emitting from the frogs body, playing dead by holding their breath, loud screams and even uri-n ating to give that bad taste. Frogs are also equipped with bulging eyes, which enable them to have a panoramic view. They canv iew all directions and many times escape the enemy. T he singing you hear comes from the male frog. T hey sing or grunt to attract the females for mating purposes. Another reason that frogs make noise is to warn trespassing males that theya re encroaching on their territory. F emales have a voice, too, but it is much softer and may not be heard over thel oud males. Most of us have had the privilege of hearing t he chorus of music that frogs create. Stand beside a pond or lake in the evening a nd take a flashlight. Frogs are attracted to insects, so y ou should be able to see them and most certainly hear them on a nice, balmy Florida night. Frogs are important to h umans for many reasons. Enjoyment of the sounds t hey make is certainly a plus for any nature lover. Many species of frogs are con-s umed by people in various countries. Frogs eat insects w hich can be serious pests. They are used for medical research to test for new d rugs. For years, frogs have been u sed in science classes by students to dissect and learn about anatomy. But perhaps most importantly, frogs are part of the ecosystem andf ood chain. Other animals feed on them and each link i n the chain is vital to the balance of nature.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Early in the first game of Thursdays doubleheader with PascoHernando on the Lady Panther diamond, head coach Carlos Falla was feeling the frustration of his teamsearly season inconsistency. I swear, we make up ways to allow teams to score, he said This was after a second inning, after all, where a walk, wild pitch, dropped foul pop-up and a diving stab of a shot up the middle couldt quite be corralled lead toa 1-0 Pasco lead. The Lady Conquistadors scored a bit more conventionally the next inning, on three straight singles, for a 2-0 lead, but the tide would start to shift. AKira Wickes RBI single in the fourth cut the lead in half and three more runs in the fifth took the lead. Courtney Diamond of Casselberry reached on an error and was moved along on a Morgan Huhn sacrifice bunt. When Lexi Belardis bunt attempt was misplayed, Diamond scored and Belardis heads-up baserunning got her all the way to third. Breanna Shearin followed with a single for a score and after Mackenzie Hunt got a base-knock to left, Wickes tallied another run with a hit for a 4-2 lead. SFCC would pad the lead with two insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth. Miami native Amanda Labrador lead off the inning with a double to deep leftcenter and one out later Shaneque Red Simmons drew a base on balls. Huhn singled and when the throw in got away, Labradors run came in. Belardi then was hit by a pitch and Shearin lofted a fly ball deep enough to bring home another run. Those runs came in handy as the Panthers came up witha couple more ways to give up runs, but tightened the cinch enough to hold on to the 6-4 win. Fireballing Jessica Griffin had another strong start for South Florida, and with the team starting to get past some of their creative mistakes, things could well be on the upswing. That thought was given a lift as the Lady Panthers then went out and pounded Pasco in the nightcap, behind Kim Martins pitching and a suddenly hot offense, by a 16-2 score to move the teams record to 7-5.

The Devils pulled away from Booker in the third, relying on the press and speed to keep Booker on the reaction, allowing Avon Park to score 18 points in the third while holding Sarasota to just one bucket. Thats where the game changed, Clemons said. Traffic picked up as Booker switched to man-toman in the fourth, but the Devils continued to press hard. When the score hit 63-44 Avon Park, Clemons went to his bench with 2:26 left in the fourth, using the youth to keep Booker on the run while holding Jamal Gaines, the Tornados leading scorer, to just 11 points for the night. Avon Park kept passing under the basket, drawing Booker away from Travis Lawton, who picked up seven point and 10 rebounds. Booker continued to pepper away from the outside in t he second half of the game, and had plenty of opportunities, but only netted three treys before the buzzer sounded. Both teams picked up 21 p oints in the fourth, but Booker still trailed 65-51 when the clock ran out. Romeollo Roberts was also in the doubles club with 15 points on the night.

The first of these setbacks was felt earlier in the week, as Avon Parks Jose Torres had battled a fever and flulike symptoms, leaving him f eeling tired and weak coming in. But theres something to be said for the adrenaline of the big stage. Torres shook off whatever was ailing him to take an 8-6, first-round decision over Tampa Robinsons JeremyA ndujar, in the Class 1A, 1 13-pound weight class. He had a tougher second match, against Chase Singletary of Somerset an old nemesis he had lost to at the Spiegel Memorial Invitational last month. Torres would come up s hort again, on the wrong side of a 13-2 decision. He made a nice comeback toward the end and almost had him, assistant coach Omar Torres said. We told him, against this guy, youve got to be physical with him early and wear him down, otherwise hell just keep adding points. Jose finally started too, but it was tool ate. Dropped into the consolation bracket, Torres would now have to keep winning through wrestlebacks to stay in medal contention.

C M Y K By TOM WITHERS Associated PressCLEVELAND His latest homecoming over and the hatred subsided, LeBron James had more to do. He greeted fans standing behind the bench and personally delivered his headband to a young admirer before heading to the locker room. He left the floor he once owned, skipping down a carpeted runway and slapping outstretched hands with every step. It was time to leave for his n ew home. It was time to go back to Miami and run down an NBA title. James scored 28 points in his third game back in Cleveland as a visitor, Dwyane Wade added 22 and the Heat concluded a sixgame road trip with their fifth straight win, 111-87 over the Cavaliers, who seemed intimidated by Miamis mere presence. Booed loudly every time he touched the ball by fans who havent forgiven him for leaving two years ago, James scored 16 in the third quarter when the Heat opened a 34point lead. He added four dunks, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and rested the entire fourth quarter. M iami has won eight of nine, and went 5-1 on its trip, winning by an average of 18.8 points. The way we won these last five games was very i mpressive, James said. We w ent on the road and won by double digits in each of those games and in some hostile environments. It was definitely a big road trip for us, six games in 10 days. We took care of business. The Heat showed no mercy on the Cavs, who got 17 points from rookie Kyrie Irving and 15 from Ramon Sessions. Cleveland coach Byron Scott was disturbed by a loss in which his team fell behind by 23 in the first quarter and never recovered. e looked like we were frightened, Scott said. I said at halftime, It boggles my mind that you are scared of another man. That would be James, who toyed with the Cavs and silenced a sell-out crowd that came to vent again at a player who thrilled them for seven seasons. Other than pregame introductions, James was the one who made more noise. s been playing at an MVPlevel all season, Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said. s arguably playing the best ball of his career. Hes playing as well as anyone in the league. The Heat ended their trip with a devastating performance at both ends over the Cavs, who had played them tough in two previous losses this season. Miami led 11-0, 21-2, 29-8 and 35-14 in the first quarter. The Cavaliers never had a chance. On the trip, the Heat also won three games in three nights, becoming the first team since the 1979-80 Phoenix Suns to accomplish that three-peat. And with Tuesdays 15point win at Indiana, the Heat also became the first team since Milwaukee in 1970 to win three consecutive road games by 10 points or more. The Bucks won the NBA t itle that year. The Heat could be on their way to one of their own. James had spent the past t wo days staying at his mansion in nearby Bath, Ohio, a p erk he enjoyed and a stay that made him a little nostalg ic. On Thursday, James e xpressed the possibility of returning to the Cavs before his career is over. Thats years down the road. His immediate plans are to win championships with the Heat. With Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert sitting courtside, James and the Heat wasted no time in opening their huge lead. Miami scored the games first 11 points and pushed its lead to 25-5 when James grabbed a lob and delivered a vicious one-handed slam, an early punctuation mark. James and Mario Chalmers hit consecutive 3-pointers later in the quarter as the Heat opened a 21-point lead after one. This wasnt what Scott had in mind. One of his assistants had written on the dry-erase board in Clevelands locker room the message: Hit First. The Heat landed the initial shot and kept em coming. They pushed their lead to 27 on a 3-pointer by Wade and Miami went 8 of 12 from long range in opening a 6338 lead. In the third, James went on a personal 7-0 run he started with a pair of free throws. He followed that with a thunderous dunk and capped it with a 3-pointer. After the ball swished through the net, James headed down court nodding to fans as if to say, Remember me? e took the crowd right out of it, James said. That was big. It was a good way to start the game. This was Jamesthird visit to Cleveland with the Heat, and as usual, it turned in to more than just a game. J ames touched some nerves in Northeast Ohio and South Florida on Thursday when he said he could envis ion a return to the Cavs at some point. I think it would be great, h e said. It would be fun to play in front of these fans a gain. ... And if I decide to come back, hopefully the f ans will accept me. Those remarks didnt sit well with some Miami fans, but James didnt back off his comments Friday. However, he did clarify that he is committed to the Heat. I love the fans of Miami. Im here, said James, who can opt out of his contract after the 2014 season. The question was asked of me, could I see myself playing back here. I said yeah, in the sense of I dont know what my future holds and I dont want to take that out. Ive got everything invested with this team. Im looking forward to the years to come. But according to a report from Yahoo! Sports, James has been using messengers to relay to Gilbert that he wants to return to Cleveland in three years. James was asked to comment on the report. Not true, not true at all, he said. Thats all conjecture. This is fact: He and Heat look unstoppable. NOTES: James improve to 6-1 against the Cavs, averaging 25.7 points. ... Cavs G Daniel Gibson sat out with a sprained left ankle but could be back Sunday against Sacramento. ... Spoelstra had high praise for Clevelands young squad. The future looks very bright for their organization and the future could be now, said Spoelstra. They have a lot of young talent. ... Cavs C Semih Erden left with a bruised left wrist in the third quarter and didnt return. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, February 19, 2012Page 3D HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 5 5 1 1 3 3 c hampions club; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; champions club; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 6 6 2 2 8 8 James, Heat blast Cavaliers 111-87 MCTphoto L eBron James had little trouble with his former team Friday night, but has also been doing a little flirting with his hometown fans. Get the paper delivered to you! NEWS-SUN-6155 Associated PressNEWYORK ESPN has apologized for using a racial slur in a headline for a story on Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin. ESPN ran the headline Chink in the Armor after Lin had nine turnovers in New Yorks loss to the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night on its mobile website that could be seen on phones and tablet computers. Lin is the NBAs first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent. He has captivated sports fans with unexpected dominance on the court that sparked a seven-game winning streak. ESPN says in a statement Saturday it removed the headline 35 minutes after it was posted. The cable network says it is conducting a complete review of our cross-platform editorial procedures and are determining appropriate disciplinary action to ensure this does not happen again. We regret and apologize for this mistake. The story was first reported by Outsports.com. ESPN sorry for offensive headline on Lin story By MARK LONG Associated PressD AYTONABEACH Five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus are back in the spotlight at one of racings biggest stages and not for the right reason. NASCAR confiscated part of their Daytona 500 car Friday because of illegal modifications, a rocky start to Speedweeks for a team trying to bounce back fromi ts worst season. Sprint Cup Series officials determined the No. 48 Chevrolet had illegallym odified C-posts, an area of sheet metal between the roof a nd the side windows. It could lead to penalties f or Knaus and the team. Officials cut off the Cp osts and planned to ship them to NASCARs research and development center in Concord, N.C., for further testing. In the meantime, the parts in question were put on display for other teams to examine, a routine procedure for the sanctioning b ody. NASCAR allowed the Hendrick Motorsports team to fix that area of the car before practice begins for the Feb. 26 Daytona 500. Qualifying is scheduled for Sunday. ell, its a hell of a way to start the 2012 season, said Ken Howes, vice president of competition at Hendrick Motorsports. Butt he car obviously failed inspection and NASCAR has directed us how they want it fixed and were busy doing that. Were waiting on s ome parts to arrive and well put it back together and run it through inspect ion again. The No. 48 team could be f ined, docked points or both following the seriesprem ier event. Theres always a potential, but well just wait until after Speedweeks is over with, said Robin Pemberton, NASCARs vice president of competition. Knaus has been caug ht c heating before. Most notably, he was ejected before the 2006 Daytona 500 after NASCAR found illegal modifications following a qualifying session. Last season, Knaus was caught on camera telling Johnson that if he won at Talladega he needed to crack the back of the car apparently to build ane xplanation in case the car did not pass post-race inspection. Nothing came of that situation. K naus has been fined and penalized several other t imes, too. This situation doesnt a ppear to be as serious as it was in 2006. Ejection? No, no, were good, Pemberton said. That was a little bit different because that was a postevent wed already been in. That wasnt a pre-race inspection or pre-qualifying inspection.

C M Y K B y LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Sebring utility starter Jayme Faircloth may still be sporting blue next year, but she is trading in her Streak uniform for that of a Seahawk as she made an official commitment to Broward College Tuesday morning. While she believes she will be playing outfield for the Seahawks, Faircloth has also made appearances on second base and shortstop for the Blue Streaks throughout her four-year varsity career. However, when asked her preference, she smiled and said, Anywhere on the field. Jayme is the definition of a team player; shes versatile and can bat anywhere from the number one to the number nine slot, said Sebring head coach Joe Sinness. Shes going to what you ask of her. If you ask her to lay down a bunt, she is going to get a bunt down. If you ask her to hit to the right side, shes going to do everything she can to get the ball to the right side. Like most her age, Faircloth is looking forward to an atmosphere slightly different than her hometown but is still a bit apprehensive about the change. Its bittersweet leaving family and friends who will be two hours away, but its also new chapter in life. Her parents, Todd and Jessie Faircloth, agreed. ere very proud of our daughter, they said. Shes got a big experience ahead of her, but we will still support her and travel as often as we can to see her. Sinness also sees a bright future for Faircloth. s a great kid and shes going to fit in wherever she goes. I think she has the ability to go in right away and push somebody for a starting spot. This travel will be nothing new to the Faircloths, as they have supported both her and her sister Kara in attending numerous travelball tournaments around the country as they played for the Arcadia-based Southern Shockers. Her experiences with the Shockers intrigued scouts from various schools, including Webber and Thomas, where fellow teammate and close friend Dino Lower recently signed. She preferred the Broward area more, however, and looks forward to playing while earning an education. In fact, Faircloth added that she will be joined by some of her fellow Shocker Sisters in Broward as roommates as they play for head coach Jennifer Lopez. Until that time comes, she plans to continue to hit the weight room to prepare herself for the advanced play she is about to face and also explained that she will be playing for a junior college level travel team branching from the Shockers after the regular season. Jayme will be studying sports medicine for her two years at Broward and looks forward to continuing her education wherever the ensuing roads may lead her.

Jayme Faircloth is Broward bound match of the day, edging Bozemans Brandon Reyes 75, to end Friday with a win and continue into Saturdays competition one win away from assuring himself of a medal. Red Devil teammate, Dylan Brown, made his path a bit more direct, taking consecutive wins in impressive fashion to advance in the 285-pound class. Opening up against Giancarlo Bennardo of A merican Heritage Delray Beach, Brown got a pin 22 seconds into the second round. Things were a tad easier against Florida Highs Dylan Coley, about 10 seconds worth, as Brown, in control for most of the first round, got the pin just 12 seconds into the second round. With a 2-0 record, Brown has assured himself a medal in Saturdays final rounds, as he was set to face Max Tejada of Jacksonville Bolles late Saturday morning. And with just the two wrestlers there, Avon Park had still managed to be tied for 22nd in the team rankings o ut of the 71 Class 1A schools after the first day of competition. Things didnt turn out quite so well for the two representatives from Sebring, as neither Chris DeJesus nor J osh Figur was able to advance to Saturdays action. After a technical fall loss, in the Class 2A160-pound division, to Javier Rodriguez of Archbishop McCarthy, DeJesus was in a close contest with Taylor Bartelson of Niceville in the crucial wrestleback to stay alive. Even at 3-3 in the last half of the final round, Bartelson moved ahead and DeJesus was unable to close the gap in the 7-3 loss. That was his inexperience showing, Blue Streak head coach Josh Miller said. He got frustrated and when hed oes that, he doesnt stay aggressive. And youre not going to score points that way Though with another year to go, DeJesus has the time, and now the experience, to build on this trip to state. But it was that brutal draw that was the most painful drawback of the day, as S ebring senior Josh Figur came up three points short of advancing to Saturday. In the 170-pound weight c lass, Figurs first opponent was Crestviews Tyler Goudy not only the top-ranked wrestler for the class in the state, but one of the topranked in the nation. He knew (Goudy first in state, but I didnt tell him he was one of the top in the country, Miller said. He t ook the loss, but he hung in t here with him for over two r ounds, so that was impressive. Now in wrestleback mode, Figur then took a convincing 7-0 win over Homesteads Anthony Wint. But things soon got tough as the states third-ranked wrestler, Dylan Arias of Olympic Heights, was upset in his second match, dropping him into the wrestlebacks and right in front of Figur. It would be a tough, wellwrestled battle, with Arias eking out a 4-2 win and ending Figurs run. That just never happens, an emotional Miller said afterward about the bad luck of the draw. To face the firstand third-ranked wrestlers in the state, just to get out of the first day. Normally youll face one and then the other in a medal match, but never both on the first day. s such a tough kid whos worked so hard, Miller continued, the pain of the moment and emotion of recollection evident on his face. I remember after myb rothers last match, being on those stairs, my last match, w e were sitting on those stairs and here we are again. Fortunately for us, my brother and I both had gottenm edals, but it was tough because it was our last matches. That just makes this one that much harder Continued from 1D N ews-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE A bove: Sebrings Josh Figur got this win over Homesteads A nthony Wint, but couldnt overcome a brutal set of matches in Fridays FHSAA Wrestling Championships at the Lakeland Center.
