C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING There was a moment of tension at Tuesdays school board meeting, brought about by the stress of meeting mandated deadlines. The district must have its new teacher evaluation system approved by the Florida Department of Education by the end of September, but getting that approval has been a challenge. The state has required constant changes and adjustments throughout the entire process. An approval for one aspect, for example, had only been received Monday afternoon. As a result the district has been hard pressed to keep to the schedule. Worried about the deadline, district staff wanted the school board to go ahead and approve the new system Tuesday night. The difficulty is that teacher evaluation systems are a contractual item, meaning the Highlands County Educational Association the teachersunion has to vote its approval first. Why pass this when there are still negotiations to come? union president Steve Picklesimer asked. s as complete as we can NEWS-SUNH ighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Friday-Saturday, August 19-20, 2011www.newssun.comVolume 92/Number 98 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 HighLow 93 76C omplete Forecast P AGE 10A A couple of afternoon thunderstorms Forecast Question: Does the c ounty need Phase III of the Sebring Parkway?

According to Cmdr. Steve Carr of the Sebring Police Department, Earl James Downs, 27, and Clinton Anthony Fletcher Jr., 21, both ofS ebring, got into an argument. During the argument, Carr said, Downs pulled out a gun and shot Fletcher in the head. The time of the incident was l isted as 12:04 a.m. on Thursday. Fletcher was transported to H ighlands Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Awitness to the shooting fled thes cene, Carr said, and Downs allegedly fired shots at the fleeing witness.

Effective as of now, school board employees arep rohibited from inviting any students, or any minors who a re not relatives, to be friendsthrough an Internet site or accepting such invitat ions from students or minors. Socializing with students who are not relatives, outside of school on social network-i ng websites, chat rooms, blogs, and other websites, including but not limited to MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter, is also prohibited. A ll electronic communication with students should be p rofessional and formal, not overly casual and never inap-p ropriate. Employees are prohibited from using electronic communications to criticize, disparage or ridicule students,s taff or the district.

The display is part of a l engthy project called Decades of Change captured t he recollections of four black and four white lifelong residents of the City of C harm. According to a press release from the Highlands County Historical Society, The current display at theG overnment Center offers some answers to the question, What was life like in a small, sleepy, Central Florida community back in the1 940s, s and s? The orations were gathered b y the Avon Park Historical Society and South FloridaC ommunity College and originally placed on display at the Museum of Florida Art and Culture. I was intrigued by the comments of the residents, s aid Elaine Levey, director of the Avon Park Depot Museum, who created thed isplay at the Government Center in conjunction with t he Highlands County Preservation Commission. It opened my eyes to a w orld I wasnt familiar with. It was thought provoking, said Else Johnson, a visitor to the Government Center on Monday who wasw aiting on a friend to pay for their registration at the tax collectors office just down the hall. I had a few minutes and I j ust wandered by and started reading the quotes. It really t ells the history, and some of the quotes are really interest-i ng, Johnson said. The four black residents interviewed were Bishop Thomas Brown Sr., Wilma Conner, Beatrice Peterson and Robert Wilson Jr. The W hite residents included Robert Barben, Roberta Flowers, Jean Jordan andD avid Lanier. Working on the oral histor y project were Larry Levey, then-president of the society, who headed up the effort; C harlotte Pressler, Ph.D., professor of English and history and director of the Honors Program at SFCC; Mollie Doctrow, MOFACc urator; and Maxine Floyd, a 1953 graduate of E.O. Douglas High School in Sebring (the only such school for blacks in thisa rea). Aretired educator, she moved back to Avon Park a nd is now a board member of the historical society. T he Government Center exhibit, located at 601 S. Commerce in Sebring, runs through the end of December.

As the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq bothc ontinue, the proud Marine said he has no regrets about his decision to enlist. I basically wanted to b etter myself, Mills explained, and I thought the military would be the right way to serve your country. I think thats a very important thing, especially during these times. With this summer shaping up to be the deadliest of the entire Afghanistan conflict, which has lasted almost a decade, Mills said spirits in the war zone are in fact very high.

Weknow you have a busy day before you, what with three prospective city managers to interview.F irst, we are glad that you all decided to interview interi m city manager Julian Deleon, even though that hadnt been your original plan. We can understand why his interview might be con-s idered superfluous. After all, as he has pointed out himself, he is a known quantity, and has a track record with the city. But, the interviewing process is simply too impor-t ant to blow off, which is why we thank you for changi ng your minds. Not only is an interview the perfect time for you to make your will known, but you can discuss priorities,p olicies and set out expectations. We hope you take a moment to remember that you are hiring an individualw ho will be working on behalf of the people not just yourselves; that both you and city staff answer at all times to the voter. We understand why it wont be easy to keep an open mind. In many ways, Deleon has certainly been an asset to Avon Park. He re-organized the utilities and public works department, lowering rates; and showed leadership as interim city manager by cutting costs and annexing properties to broaden the tax base. Given that the other two candidates for city manager are unknown, it will be difficult for you to remain unbiased especially as it seems clear to us that you and Deleon have a comfortable working relationship. Second, we hope that you take the interview process seriously and dont ask superficial questions and dont accept vague answers. For example, we expect you to draw out specifics from the candidates. It isnt enough for one to say, We need to stabilize revenue, and stop there. Y ou need to ask How? What is the plan? Q uestions of character matter too, of course. Please ask Deleon if he r egrets an official letter that Buddy Whitlock, then presid ent of the Sebring City Council, wrote in August of 2008 and sent to MichaelW right, the county administrator. In it, Whitlock deemed Deleons behavior an interf erence with city/county business and both improper a nd unethical. Of course, you all might give Deleon bonus points for what he did to get the City of Sebring so angry from onep erspective, we have to kind of admire his stealth ourselves. Whitlock said that while Sebring was negotiating an interlocal agreement with the county to provide water ands ewer services to a project being constructed by A dvanced Developers, Deleon apparently approached the company offering the same utility services through Sun N Lake. W e hope you ask Deleon if Whitlock was accurate when he wrote, ... Sun N Lake staff prepared an alternate Interlocal Agreement,r eceived approval from their Board of Supervisors, prepared engineering cost estimates and had numerous emails and other communications with County staff and Commissioners. All of this was between August 5th 7th, 2008, the date of the next Board of Commissioners meeting. This meant the county had to choose between Sebring and Sun N Lake, and went with the latter, hence the letter. Deleon certainly shows he is efficient and focused, able to close a deal. But heres the thing, he won in a way that created problems, made enemies and left a bad taste. Making a city work is not a game. It takes more than cunning. It takes cooperation and a soul. Please ask Deleon if he ever thinks in terms of actual people living their lives, and if he cares at all for Highlands County as a whole. And while youre at it, ask yourselves. The fine art of interviewing Back to school at 89Editor: My mother, Magdalen Stahl, who just celebrated her 89th birthday, is excited about next week.She will once again be back in the classroom teaching second grade Catechism to the children of St. Catherine Parish in Sebring.She said, Im getting older. I hope its a small class of around 35 to 40 children! My mothers passion truly is teaching. She started at the age of 9 when neighborhood children would gather in the back yard of her Milwaukee, Wis., home to learn from little Miss Maggie.After several months, astonished parents would come to her house to thank her for all their children had been learning.From there she went on to Milwaukee State Teachers College and started teaching night classes to the foreign born adults while her husband, my dad, cared for me and my four brothers.During her college years and in her internship as a teacher she had to teach in a variety of environments.The one room school house, schools in the poor sections, the rich and elite.Only the strong would survive, and she was truly the strongest. In 1956 my parents moved to Hialeah, Fla., and it wasnt long before my mother was once again in the classroom. This time it was second grade students at Immaculate Conception school.It was here she would remain for the next 25 years until her retirement with the Diocese of Miami. After the death of my father on July 12, 2009 (my mothers birthday), my mom became more and more depressed, sad, and lonely.The love of her life was now gone and she was with us only in body her heart, mind, and soul was with my dad.She felt she no longer had any reason to live. Until that all changed last February with the lovely parishioners of St. Catherine Church. I prayed to God for help in finding a way to bring some joy and happinessb ack into my mothers life. He answered.I soon found myself contacting St. Catherine Parish and asking them what was involved in becoming a Catechist.I thought it would be great to teach the children about Jesus and to have my mother assist me (I also was a teacher for emotionally disturbed children).What started off as just a feeling of going in an endless circle of frustration ended up giving my mother new life, new hope, and new happiness.Last year we worked together with kindergarten students and this school year we will work with the second-graders as they prepare to make their First Communion. This year my mother looks forward with much excitement of being immersed in teaching her new class. Attending the monthly Into the Fields meetings, the seminars in Sarasota, and even a spring retreat. She is alive again. She is happy to be going back to school. JoMarie Grinkiewicz SebringGlobal RepublicansEditor: Many blame the Obama Administration for the loss of jobs caused by the global economy. They obviously havent read the Republican Platforms for 2000, 2004 and 2008 lately. The 2000 Republican Platform has the heading Trade: The Force of Economic Freedom and complains of the counterproductive vestiges of protectionism. The benefits of free trade are enormous and will be incalculable. The Platform advocates a free trade area of the Americas and attacks President Clinton for failing to accomplish this. Republican Presidents fought off protectionist pressure, started to enlarge free trade arrangements and signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the 2000 Platform says. Republican legislators are praised for passing the Caribbean Basin Initiative. ARepublican administration committed to NAFTAcan bring about hemispheric free trade. The 2004 Platform credits the Bus h Administration for completed free trade agreements with 12 countries, including Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and also Jordan and Morocco. The Platform expresses support for President Bushs plan for a Middle East Free Trade Area by 2013. The average American consumer saves $2,000 a year because of free trade agreements, we are told. There s no word on how much the American worker loses. The 2008 Republican Platform favors mutually beneficial trade agreements with Latin America. Union bosses and Capitol Hill Democrats are blamed for blocking a free trade agreement with Columbia. The Platform talks about Chinas fu ll integration into the global economy Greater international trade means more jobs and higher wages, we are told. Foreign markets are an opportunity for small business. Agriculture can face problems caused by turbulence in global markets, the Platform admits. Senator Marco Rubio is fully on board. According to his website, Rubio supports free trade agreemen ts with Columbia, Panama and South Korea. Though unhelpful, Rep. Tom Rooney has a different stance. According to ontheissues.org, Rooneys stand on free trade is No Stance On Record. Rep. Dennis Ros s holds the seat formerly held by Adam Putnam. Again, Rep. Rossposition is No Stance On Record. Dale L. Gil lis Sebring If President Obama really wants to get the U.S. economy going again, he couldd o worse than to study the results of my Dads 1981 Economic Recovery Act, which boosted the economy by leaps and bounds. T ake the matter of jobs, for example. Thanks to the 1981 act, an astounding 20 million new jobs were created. Moreover, inflationd ropped from 13.5 percent in 1980 to a mere 4.1 percent by 1988, and unemployment fell from 7.6 percent to 5.5 percent. Moreover, the net worth o f families earning between $20,000 and $50,000 annua lly grew by 27 percent. At the same time, the real gross national productj umped by 26 percent and the prime interest rate was s lashed by half from 21.5 percent in January 1981 to 10 percent in August 1988. The amount of individual t ax revenues rose from $244 billion in 1980 to $446 bill ion in 1989. Moreover, total tax revenues jumped grew by almost 100 percent,r ising by 99.4 percent during the 1980s. The act produced 92 months of healthye conomic growth the longest period of peacetime in the post WWII period. U nder my Dad, marginal tax rates were cut from a top rate of 70 percent to a mere 28 per-c ent, while revenues to the U.S. government from all taxes nearly doubled increasing from roughly $500 billion to an astronomical $1.1 trillion in1 990. Such stellar economic g rowth was the result of my Dads economic policies, which were rooted in hisb elief in the ability of the American people to make t he right decisions concerning their nations economic activity. Contrast that with the Obama administrations quasi-Marxist policies,w hich seek to make Washington the center of t he nations economic activity. This results in aberrat ions, such as non-elected government boards seeking to dictate to corporations andb usiness where they can and cannot locate their various operations, as weve seen int he case of Seattlebased Boeings decision to open a plant in South Carolina, a right-t o-work state. Incredibly, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB that move, claiming that it is based solely on the statuso f that state as a right-towork state, putting the gove rnment in league with Big Labor, which hates giving workers their rights to worka s they see fit and wants to prevent the move. R onald Reagan would have been appalled by that outrage. When faced with a similar attempt by a labor union to twist the rules gov-e rning the behavior of air traffic controllers, my Dad s imply fired them all and replaced them. He would have defied any attempt top revent a company from moving some of their operations to a new location because .a labor uniono pposed the move on the grounds that it freed employees from the grip of Big Labor bosses. The Obama administrat ion has displayed outright hostility toward Boeing, using the NLRB to harass the company as it attempts to operate free of govern-m ent interference. Too bad my Dad isnt around to curb the power of an out-of-control government agency slavishly bowing to the dictates of a powerful laboru nion, and not the workers it pretends to represent.

C ontinued from page 1A By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING County commissioners told representatives from the Highlands County Sheriffs Office that they would not tell them where to make cuts, but they still wanted the sheriffs budget trimmed $1.73 million. County Administrator Ricky H elms informed the public that his staff estimated a $22,681,611 cap on the sheriffs portion of the budget and that number was needed to keep the budget in balance. S heriff Susan Benton stated that she had different numbers, and herb udget was approximately $24,413,000. After some jousting with Board Chair Barbara Stewart at last weeks meeting, Sheriff Susan B enton sent a memo to county staff asking for a decision on proposed cuts of close to $1.006 million in specific programs and personnel. The board balked at approving s pecific line-by-line cuts to the s heriffs budget, and directed her department to get to the number Helms quoted. That recommendation has not changed, Helms told the commis-s ion as he declined to comment on the sheriffs memo and proposed c uts. e dont have the authority to determine where the money is spent, said Stewart. ith the million or so she is givi ng back this year and the few hundred thousand or so we are going to shuffle over, this current year there is a possibility to make cuts and not effect services, Commissioner DonE lwell said. In the proposed budget from the s heriff, $250,419 was set aside for raises to employees and approx im ately $286,000 was proposed for contributions to the dispatchers retirement program. I dont know if that is a wi se decision in these economic times, Elwell said. Stewart was moving on with the agenda when Helms asked for clarification if the issue needed to be on n ext weeks agenda. The board decided to stick to the $22,681,611 sheriffs budget without a formal vote.

Yet because of his soul mates support and strength, as well as the opportunity to see his son via Skype, Hegseth remembers what he is fighting for.

By MIKE SCHNEIDER A ssociated PressO RLANDO Workingage adults made up Floridas fastest-growing age group in the past decade, according to census data releasedT hursday, helping push the Sunshine State down several rungs in the ranking of states with the nations oldest population. T he figures show that residents ages 18 to 64 propelled Floridas growth in boom counties on the periphery of major metro areas places such as Osceola County out-s ide Orlando, St. Johns and Flagler counties near J acksonville and Pasco County outside St. Petersburg at least untilt he boom ended in a housing bust at the end of the decade. A t the same time, traditional retiree havens such as Broward and Pinellas counties lost seniors and gained working-age adults. GulfC oast counties with large numbers of retirees, such as H ernando and Pasco counties, saw their concentration of seniors diluted with thea rrival of younger residents. There have been a lot m ore young people moving in, said Jeff Johnson, AARP Florida interim state director. Some of the big Broward condos, which are sort of stereotypical of Broward County, a lot of those condos have had a pretty good pieceo f turnover in the last 10 years. There are a lot of people who are younger who are living in places that before you would have expected nott o see anybody under the age of 75. From 2000 to 2010, working-age residents grew by more than a fifth, whileF loridas seniors, 65 years and older, grew by only a sixth. Floridians under age 18 rose by less than a tenth. The influx of working-age adults helped push Floridad own the rankings of states with the oldest population. F lorida now has the fifthhighest median age, 40.7, trailing Maine, Vermont,W est Virginia and New Hampshire. It had the seco nd-highest a decade ago, and two decades ago it had the highest median age. Monroe County, home to the Florida Keys, wasF loridas only county that lost working-age adults. It a lso had about a fifth fewer residents under the age of 18 than it did a decade ago, buti t gained in senior residents. Traditional retiree havens s uch as Broward County, home to Fort Lauderdale, and Pinellas County, home to St.P etersburg, even lost seniors during the decade. The working-age population rose in Broward County, known for its condo canyons ofr etirees, as it did in Pinellas County, whose retiree population was given the Hollywood treatment in the 1985 movie Cocoon. F loridas seniors flocked to new retiree destinations in the state, such as The Villages in Sumter County, north of Orlando, and newg olf communities in northeast Florida near Jacksonville. Richard and Catherine Conti owned a condo in Boca Raton that they used forv acations away from their home in Rhode Island. But w hen they wanted to retire full time in 2001, they decided to live in The Villages.T hey were lured by the chance to play nonstop golf, b ut they also found that the dollar went a lot further in central Florida than it did in South Florida. s more expensive there t han here, said Catherine Conti, 70. I didnt want to g o into debt or anything. I wanted to have a nice retirement. F or female retirees in Florida, the dating pool i mproved over the past decade.

Influx of working-age adults fuels states growth Associated PressLONDON Anew oil sheen was spotted in the Gulf of Mexico, although energy company BPsaid Thursday the discovery had nothing to do with its operations and was far from the site of its disaster-hit Macondo well. Aspokesman for another company involved in investigating the sheen said he believed it had already dissipated since being first spotted last week. BPspokesman Daren Beaudo said his company had sent several remotely controlled mini-submersibles into the water over the weekend to investigate the source of the sheen a shiny coating that floats on the surface of the water which generally comes from leaked or spilled oil but had concluded that it couldnt have been from anything of ours. Astatement from BPPLC placed the site of the sheen near two abandoned exploration well sites in the Green Canyon Block in the Gulf of Mexico, although its size and exact location wasnt disclosed.

C M Y K SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, Augusst 19, 2011 P age 4B By STEVEN WINE Associated PressCORALGABLES The latest scandalous allegations in college football this time at the University of Miami have renewed talk by the NCAAof the need for fundamental change in athletics. And Hurricanes officials say theyre eager to resolve the case. Former booster Nevin Shapiro, now serving 20 years in federal prison for his role in a Ponzi scheme, claims he provided Miami players with prostitutes, cars and other gifts over the past decade. If the assertions are true, the alleged conduct at the University of Miami is an illustration of the need for serious and fundamental change in many critical aspects of college sports, NCAApresident Mark Emmert said in a statement. In the past 18 months, football teams at Southern California, Ohio State, Auburn, Oregon, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and LSU have been investigated or sanctioned by the NCAA. Last week, Emmert led a group of university presidents including Miamis Donna Shalala in drafting an outline for change in college sports. Shalala said she was upset, disheartened and saddened by Shapiros alleg ations. e will vigorously pursue the truth, wherever that path may lead, and I have insisted upon complete, honest and transparent Will Miami case lead to fundamental change?

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING With a seniorheavy roster, one would think that experience would be among the Sebring volleyballt eams greater strengths heading into this 2011 season. es and no, head coach Vanessa Sinness said. Weh ave experience, but a lot of the girls were back and forth l ast year. Stephanie (Struck and Kaley (Walter) were them ain ones that played regularly But even the smaller doses of varsity experience add up, with perhaps the biggest stepf orward being taken by setter Dino Lower. She has grown immensely since last year, leadership wise, Sinness said. S omething, Lower says, that comes from growing into the position. Last year was my first as the varsity setter and it was real nerve-wracking at times, she said. Im a lot more comfortable and confident with it this year Ability and size this team does have as great assets heading into the year, with middles Walter and Meghan Lollis each hovering around 6-feet and hitters like Struck, Sidney Connelly, Kenzie Hargaden and BellaC araballo all 5-foot-9 or above also with the hops to take them higher. Weve got some real big h itters, Lower said, speaki ng of their ability as well as their stature. T he defense on the back l ine will be anchored by senior Bianca Nortelus, coming in with two years of varsity experience, and will be flanked by the Madison Harris and Allie Mann. And though not quite as tall as her outside hitting counterparts, sophomore Jordan Hinkle throws a wrinkle into the mix with surprising leaps and a strong lefthanded spike. Finally theres Lowers understudy at setter, sophomore Lindsey Whittington, who Siness has high hopes for.

Most cases are resolved in six to seven months, but more complex investigations take longer, an NCAAofficial said. S hapiro began making his allegations about a year ago. He told Yahoo Sports that 72 football players and other athletes at Miami received improper benefits from him in the past decade. Shapiro was sentenced to prison in June for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme, plus ordered to pay more than $82 million in restitution to investors. NCAAinvestigators were on the Miami campus this week and have interviewed Shalala and athletic director Shawn Eichorst. Eichorst was hired as athletic director in April to replace Kirby Hocutt, who became AD at Texas Tech. Al Golden became the Hurricanescoach in December after Randy Shannon was fired. Goldens entire team practiced Wednesday, even though the claims by Shapiro involve several current players. Golden said it was too soon to take disciplinary action. His team opens the season Sept. 5 against Maryland. Yahoo Sports published its story Tuesday, saying it spent 100 hours interviewing Shapiro over the span of 11 months and audited thousands of pages of financial and business records to examine his claims, some involving events nearly a decade ago. The NCAAs four-year statute of limitations doesnt apply when there is a pattern of willful violations that continues into the past four years. Aperson familiar with the situation said much of Shapiros access to Hurricane programs in recent years was approved by Hocutt. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. Hocutt, the person said, allowed Shapiro on the sideline before football games at times during the 2008 season, plus invited him to select gatherings reserved for the athletic departments biggest donors. Thats what Kirby did, the person said. His No. 1 job was to raise money and this Nevin Shapiro guy was one of the few people Kirby could get to write checks. In a statement, Hocutt said Shapiro was treated like other members of the Hurricane Club. While I was athletics director, the benefits and experiences Mr. Shapiro received were consistent with those provided to others at his membership level, Hocutt said. I never personally approved any special access for Mr. Shapiro to university athletics events or programs. Larry Coker, who coached the Hurricanes in 2001-06, said he had not been contacted by the NCAAor Miami about the investigation. Any coach or athletic direction involved in the case who now works at another school could be subject to NCAApunishment if found guilty of a violation. The APinterviewed more than a dozen former Miami players, and their reactions ranged from denials of involvement to declining comment. AP Sports Writers Michael Marot, Tim Reynolds, Betsy Blaney and Paul Weber contributed to this report. Continued from 1B Miami under investigation Lindsey is a very good setter already, but Dinos going to do a lot of mentoring this season, she said. Shes still growing and I could see her as a Britt (Augustine type who can set and be a scoring threat. e have the size, athleticism and ability, but were slow in our transitions right now, Sinness continued. ere working on getting p ast having to think it too much and that will come with experience. And so it may be a growing process as the team will make its way through a new district this year. Sebring joins up with Lakeland-Kathleen, Winter Haven and Lake Gibson to form a small, though very tough district. Lake Gibson is really good and Winter Haven didt lose anyone from last year, so theyre going to be hard for anyone to get past, Sinness said. But well be in the mix and if we continue to get better, you never know where well end up. It always seems like that, no matter what district were in, how m any teams are in it, were just outside the top two or three. One of these years were going to break through. Which the optimistic Lower wouldnt doubt could be this year. I think were going to be really good, she said. With the big hitters weve got and how good our passing is already, Im real confident w ell do well. The season kicks off Tuesday with the annual Pre Season Classic, with Okeechobee and Lake Placid squaring off at 6 p.m. and S ebring facing Avon Park at 7:30 p.m. The losing teams of those two match-ups play Thursday at 6 p.m. with the winning teams meeting after.

Sebring to see small, tough new district Jarrett 65s Softball win By KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO Tennessees interim athletics director said Wednesday that she is referring all questions about possible expansion of Southeastern Conference to the leagues commissioner. During the SECs annual meeting of athletic directors, Tennessees Joan Cronan said dont expect any expansion news from the meeting. I think all youre going to g et from any of us is no c omment,Cronan said. She added that the ADs are deferring all questions about expansion to the (SEC missioner Several other SEC athletic directors declined any comment. T he meetings concluded on Thursday. Reports continue to swirl this week about Texas A&M possibly becoming the SECs 13th member. Florida president and SEC president and chancellors c ommittee chairman Bernie Machen said recently that though they are satisfied with their current alignment, future conditions may make it advantageous to expand. Texas A&M plans to take a while before making a decision on its conference affiliation. S chool President R. Bowen Loftin has said there is no timetable for any decision and any realignment by Texas A&M will take place after a lengthy process. What we do, if anything, will be in the best interest of Texas A&M and the state of Texas, Loftin said earlier this week. Were also very c oncerned about the members of the Big 12. We dont w ant the Big 12 to go away. We have no intention of doing anything that might precipitate that.

C M Y K expecting good things to come during the season. The Eagles traveled to Cook Field in Haines City to take on the Haines City Rattlers. The anticipation of getting to play in the first jamboree game was finally here. Coaches have been getting their game strategies together and player hopes were high. Full games with each team playing four quarters of ball were scheduled for the day. Taking the field in new helmets and uniforms, the Eagles teams made their first appearance with cheerleaders on the sidelines, cheering the teams on and looking awesome in their new uniforms. The first team to take the field was the Flag team, ages5 and 6 years old, coached by Bob Ford. The game was a very exciting, close game with the Eagles getting their first win of the day with a score of 2019 Next to take the field was the Mighty Might team, ages 7, 8 and 9, coached by Willis McGuire. The Eagles took the field with pride and quickly dominated the Rattlers and taking the second win of the day with a score of 28-0. Next up was the Pee Wee team, ages 10 and 11, coached by Tim Hooks. It was a tough, defensive game with the Rattlers. The game went tit-for-tat when the Rattlers broke through to make the only score of the game. The Pee Wee offense rallied together and drove down the field, but was just unable to get into the end zone, giving the Eagles the first loss of the day by an 8-0 score. Following the Pee Wee game, the Junior Varsity team, ages 12 and 13, coached by Cliff Howell took the field. The game got off to a great start with Sammy Smith scoring the first touchdown of the game, taking the lead 7-0. The JVEagles defensive dominated the Rattlers while the offense continued to take the ball down the field. Niyke Echavarria scored two touchdowns for the day; running the ball in for one and scoring on a pass play thrown by Smith. An awesome two-point conversion catch in the air as he was going into the end zone was hauled in by Timothy Jordan. The Eagles shut down the Rattlers allowing them only one score for the day, taking their first win of the season 21-6. The last game of the day was the Varsity team, ages 13, 14 and 15, coached by John Bishop. The Eagles took the field with pride, focused and ready for some football. The Rattlers took an early lead in the game, 8-0, but the Eagles defense stood strong and the offense came out tough driving down the field. Unfortunately, due to heavy lightning, the referees called the game early in the third quarter. All in all it was a great day of football. The Eagles had taken flight as the newest association and team in the PAL association and had some great results during the day. The HYF Board of Directors want to express their appreciation to the parents, players, cheerleaders and coaches for your participation and contributions. You have made this new association and this opening day of football a success.

Every athletic f unction that goes on in the greater Sebring area, we want to help. Last year alone, the Firemen gave a $33,000c heck to the Sebring High School athletic department, in addition to many other contributions given on an asneeded basis. I think if you added it all up, we wrote checks thatt otaled nearly $100,000, Lovett said. We want to give out all of it. While times are tough, the entry fee of $75 per player has remained one of the few prices that hasnt gone up. The fee includes golf cart for the day of play, one mulligan, range balls and prizes with food and beverages b eing provided on the course. Bronze sponsorships are also available for $500, which gives the contributor a free four-man team as well as a hole sponsorship on each of the courses. As a fundraiser, its hard to really have a cut-off for entries, Lovett said. Well wait until Friday for all the teams to sign up so we can make the most of the money w e hope to raise. The folks at Sun N Lake work that real well for us. The last few years, weve had to use both the Turtle and Deer Run courses and have had between 200 and 240 golfers, Lovett continued. e hope to get the same sort of support this year. Right now we have around 240. Its all about the kids. Our sole purpose is to raise money for the kids of the area, so we need golfers to sign up. Preceding the day of golf, a mixer will be held at the new Sun N Lake Golf and Country Club Friday, Aug. 19, beginning at 6 p.m., and will feature music, bar and a slew of strong hors doeuvres. At the mixer, the various raffle items and silent auction memorabilia can be perused, for the drawings and bids being revealed at the posttournament luncheon Saturday.

C M Y K Associated PressWASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration has approved a first-of-a-kind drug to treat the deadliest form of skin cancer by targeting a particular genetic mutation found in about half of patients. The pill called Zelboraf, made by Roche, is the first treatment for melanoma that targets a specific gene found in skin-cancer tumors. The FDAsaid Wednesday it also approved a test to screen patients for the mutation. Melanoma is the fastestgrowing form of cancer in terms of new diagnoses. Researchers attribute the acceleration to longer life expectancies among the elderly and increased indoor tanning by the young. About 68,000 people in the U.S. were diagnosed last year and 8,700 died, according to the American Cancer Society. Melanoma has long been considered one of the toughest cancers to treat, with few drug options. In March the FDAapproved a BristolMyers Squibb drug that was the first drug shown to prolong survival in patients with advanced skin cancer. Zelboraf will provide a second option for melanoma patients with a mutated form of a protein called BRAF that helps with cell growth when working normally. Zelboraf works by blocking the mutated form of the protein, slowing tumor growth. The FDAapproved the drug based on a 675-patient study in which patients received either Zelboraf or a chemotherapy drug. The study is ongoing, but 77 percent of people on Zelboraf are still alive, compared with 64 percent of those taking the older drug, according to the FDA. Despite the higher survival rate, melanoma adapts quickly, and patients on Zelboraf saw their tumors resume growth after seven months on the drug, on average. The study hasnt yet established a comparison for survival time between the two drugs. Asix-month course of Zelboraf will cost about $56,400. Side effects with the drug included skin rashes, joint pain, fatigue, diarrhea and hair loss. About 26 percent of patients developed a less serious form of skin cancer. Melanoma patient advocates praised the FDAfor clearing the drug well ahead of an Oct. 28 target date to complete its review. The FDAs quick action on this drug approval is important because it gives melanoma patients a new way to fight this deadly disease, Timothy Turnham, director of the Melanoma Research Foundation, said. DearPharmacist: My 5-year-old d aughter has developed a persistent cough. Can you recommend something t o help? L.E.,Seattle, Wash. Answer: Please make every effort to f ind out whats causing that cough and see your pediatrician. Likely triggers i nclude pet dander, pollen, mildew spores, perfumes or scented products, and even chemicals used in crafts. And be sure to ask your child what she thinks makes her cough. H eres a good story. Afriend of mine had a persistent cough that developed e very winter when she was a child. She kept telling her parents that she was coughing because it felt like sheh ad hair in her throat. That was back in the days when every other child in A merica, it seemed, had a tonsillectomy. Predictably, her pediatrician recommended a tonsillectomy. T o make a long story short, my friend had her tonsils removed. And it didnt make a bit of difference. She k ept on coughing, year after year, every winter. As an adult, my friend h ad a light bulb go off inside her head. That cough really was from hair, or rather fur. Her mother used to cover her against the cold with a squirrel coat. She went to sleep everyn ight with her face buried in the folds of that old fur coatthat old shedding fur coat. If her parents had only listened to her about the hair, she might have been spared the surgeons scalpel. I dont suggest use over-the-counter cough remedies for your child although c ough drops are OK. That may sound like an odd recommendation coming f rom a pharmacist. But medical researchers have shown that most of the time they dont work well on chil-d ren, plus they can have some serious side effects. For example, in a 2007 study at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine groups of children with upper respiratory tracti nfections received either remedies containing the cough suppressant dextromethorphan or a spoonful of honey or no treatment at all before going to bed. Researchers had parents r eport on both coughing and whether the child got a good n ights sleep. Guess which remedy won the day? That oldfashioned, tried-and-true remedy a teaspoon of honey. Heres what the researchers said: Parents rated honey most favorably for symptomatic relief of their childs nocturnal cough and sleep difficulty due to upper respiratory tract infection. Y ou should never give honey to children under the age of 1 or 2 theres even debate on that. It may trigger allergic reactions in very young children a nd has been associated with various toxins, depending on t he type of honey. However, let me be clear that one should also never g ive cough suppressant medication to young children either, unless recommended by a pediat rician because they can slow breathing.Did You Know? R esearchers just found that GABAreceptors in the retinal cells stopped functioning properly when vitamin C was deficient, so taki ng vitamin C may help preserve vision.

Snapshots FDA approves first genetargeting skin cancer drug By LAURAN NEERGAARD A PMedical WriterWASHINGTON Addiction isnt just about willpower. Its a chronicb rain disease, says a new definition aimed at helping families and their doctors better understand the challenges of treating it. Addiction is about a lot more than people behaving badly, says Dr. Michael M.M iller of the American Society for Addiction Medicine. T hats true whether it involves drugs and alcohol o r gambling and compulsive eating, the doctors group said Monday. Andl ike other chronic conditions such as heart disease o r diabetes, treating addiction and preventing relapse is a long-term endeavor, the specialists concluded. Addiction generally is d escribed by its behavioral symptoms the highs, the c ravings, and the things people will do to achieve one and avoid the other.T he new definition doesnt disagree with the standard g uide for diagnosis based on those symptoms. But two decades of neur oscience have uncovered how addiction hijacks different parts of the brain, to explain what prompts those behaviors and why they canb e so hard to overcome. The societys policy statement, published on its website, isnt a new direction as much as part of an e ffort to translate those findings to primary care doctors and the general public. The behavioral problem i s a result of brain dysfunction, agrees Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. S he welcomed the statement as a way to help her own agencys work to spurm ore primary care physicians to screen their patients for signs of addic-t ion. NIDAestimates that 23 million Americans need t reatment for substance abuse but only about 2 million get that help. T rying to add compassion to the brain findings, N IDAeven has made readings from Eugene ONeills Long Days Journey into Night a part of meetings where primary care doctorsl earn about addiction. Then theres the frustrat ion of relapses, which doctors and families alike need to know are common for ac hronic disease, Volkow says. You have family members that say, OK, youve been to a detox program, h ow come youre taking drugs? she says. The pathology in the brain persists for years after youve stopped taking the drug. J ust what does happen in the brain? Its a complex interplay of emotional, cognitive and behavioral networks. Addiction a brain disorder, not just bad behavior

Snapshots RELIGION COMMUNITYCALENDAR The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN A ssociated PressN ASHVILLE, Tenn. The Davidson County Sheriffs Office is changing its policies regarding religious head coverings at thec ourthouses or in jail. Hedy Weinberg, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee, said in Tuesdayt hat the sheriff's office rewrote its policies after the ACLU contended current practices violate the First Amendment and federal and state law. W einberg said a Muslim woman was required to r emove her headscarf for a booking photo and a Muslim man was ordered to removeh is head covering before entering a courthouse. K arla Weikal, a sheriffs spokeswoman, said two booking photos can be taken, one including head coverings and one with only veils removed. The second change a llows people visiting the courthouse to wear religious head coverings after a security screening. Indiana school voucher program still in placeINDIANAPOLIS A j udge declined to halt Indianas broad new school voucher program, allowing the law to remain in effect while a group of teachers and religious leaders challenge it. M arion Superior Court Judge Michael Keele sided M onday with the state in denying a temporary injunction. A ttorneys for the state argued that granting the i njunction could have forced students who received vouchers to leave their private schools just as the academic year was beginning and to scramble to re-enroll in publ ic schools. Keele ruled only on the plaintiffsrequest for a preliminary injunction. Their complaint challenging thel aw hasnt gone to trial yet. The law allows even middle-class parents to use taxpayer money to send their children to private seculara nd religious schools. The measure passed this year by the Republican-dominated General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Mitch Daniels is the nationsb roadest private school voucher program. Agroup of t eachers and religious leaders backed by the Indiana State Teachers Association is chal-l enging it. An attorney for the plaintiffs, John West, argued t he new law violates the state constitution because it provides public money to schools whose main purpose is to promote religion.

C M Y K B y CHRISTYLEMIRE A PMovie CriticN o one ever turns into a g iant snake in the new Conan the Barbarian. T hat, in a nutshell, is whats wrong with this remake: The knowing sense of big, ridiculous fun that marked the 1982 original isg one, and in its place we get a self-serious series of generic sword battles and expository conversations. F ight, talk, fight, talk, fight, talk, then an enormous throwdown followed by ad enouement that dangles the possibility of a sequel (dear God, no) thats the basic structure here. And yet, d espite seeming so simplistic, director Marcus Nispels f ilm is mind-numbingly convoluted. The fact that its b een converted to a murky, smudgy, barely-used 3-D doesnt help matters. At one point, I scrawled in my notes: Incomprehensible underwater serpent attack. There you have it. The script is credited to three writers, based on R obert E. Howards Conan character, but everyone involved would probably prefer that you not think of this as a remake. Remakes have become Nispels bread and butter in recent years. The longtime music-video director also made the 2003 version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the 2009 version of Friday the 13th. But while the original Conan the movie that signaled the arrival of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a bona fide movie star looks extremely dated nearly 30 years later, it still functions just fine as both an epic adventure tale and an admitted guilty pleasure. Theres very little thats pleasurable in this new Conan, aside from allowing us to ogle the muscular, 6-foot-5 physique of up-andcoming action star Jason Momoa. If youre into that kind of thing, that is he isa spectacle to behold, albeit in a romance-novel covermodel kind of way. I live. I love. I slay ... I am content, Conan says to the innocent Tamara (Rachel Nichols), whom hes been tasked with protecting. Not quite as poetic as one of Schwarzeneggers most famous lines: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women, but at least we know hes confident enough to avoid suffering an existential crisis. Good for him.H e also doesnt evolve, though, which doesnt make him terribly compelling. It didnt seem possible for there to be even less charac-t erization than there was in the original Conan, but voila. Once again, the Cimmerian warrior is on am ission to avenge the deaths of his father (Ron Perlman, w hos in no way being put to his best use) and the rest of his village. Hes after the evil warlord Khalar Zym (Stephen Langs after the Mask of Acheron, which resembles a dried-up octopus. But it can spring to life and provide unlimited power to the wearer with the help of some drops of pure blood which Tamara has. Hence, shes in demand. Khalar Zym is aided in his quest by his half-witch daughter Marique, played by an over-the-top Rose McGowan in the kind of daring, skin-baring outfits she used to wear on the red carpet when she was still dating Marilyn Manson. Marique tries out her burgeoning supernatural powers in a battle with Conan himself, but when it comes time to fight Tamara as part of the films climax, its all mano-amano. Why? Because its sexier for them to be writhing around on the ground with each other. If only the rest of the movie had such an unabashed sense of camp, we might have been onto something.One DayMaybe it was all more resonant, more poignant on the page: the many highs and lows and major life shifts that occur during the decades-spanning friends hip/romance between Emma (Anne Hathaway D exter (Jim Sturgess). But here they feel so cursory and rushed, its as ifw ere watching a filmed version of the CliffsNotes of D avid Nichollsbest-seller. The central conceit is this: Em and Dex meet after a l ong night of post-college graduation partying on July 15, 1988. One Day keeps coming back to that one day, yeara fter year, and checks in with them as they date other people, forge careers, share awkward dinners and basically wait around until thei nevitable July 15 when theyll be together. Big, w eighty moments are thrust before us and theses hould be serious hanky moments but since the emotional groundwork hast been laid for them, were not moved. Were just nott here yet. Emma and Dexter feel more like ideas, types, rather than fleshed-out characters, so the supporting players who supposedly playc rucial roles for them barely register either. Its a handsome misfire, though. And its all the more curious coming from Danish director Lone Scherfig, whose last film was the excellent An Education (2009 was nominated for three Academy Awards including best picture. PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity, language, some violence and substance abuse. 104 minutes.

DearAbby: My fiancee and I arel iving in a studio apartment owned by her mother. Were currently looking for anotherp lace to live, and cant decide whether or not to get a two-bedroom and a roommate. We both know the pros a nd cons of living with other people, and I have a p otential roommate I trust completely. But Im apprehensive because I had ar oommate once before and it wasnt a great experience. W ere still friends, but I would never live with him again. Were trying to get out soon. I dont want to maket he wrong decision and lose either a friend or a future w ife because of money, hurt feelings or anything else. Please advise. Mike in Florida DearMike: Living t ogether, as you have probably already learned, requires adjustment on thep art of all of the parties concerned. While you trust this friend to be a responsib le roommate, what if something unforeseeable w ere to happen and the person should have to unexpectedly move out? Would he or she be on the lease with you? Could you payt he rent without the help of another roommate? How would you manage if the roommate were to have a live-in, too? Because of these questions, it might be better tot ake a place with one bedroom to avoid possible c omplications. DearAbby: Is it appropriate to send anniversary flowers to a widow? Myh usbands grandfather just passed away, and this will be his grandmothers first wedding anniversary as a widow. E tiquette guides conflict in their advice regarding sending anniversary cards and flowers to widows. Would flowers be inappropriate? If not, what should the delivery card say? Sentimental in Keller, Texas DearSentimental: Sending flowers would be a kind and thoughtful gesture. The card could read, oure in our thoughts and in our hearts.

I m always uneasy shaking a girls hand because I am not sure if it is appropriate. If I am seated, I will stand to introduce myself, butt hen theres an awkward pause afterward. Please a dvise. AProper Gentleman DearGentleman: A ccording to the rules of etiquette, its the woman w ho dictates whether or not to shake hands. If she extends her hand, yous hould shake it. If not, keep your hands at your sides smile, tell her your name a nd say, Its nice to meet you. Thats all you have to d o. DearAbby: I live in a nice, quiet neighborhood. A few months ago, however, ay oung woman who lived across the street from me was brutally stabbed to death by her jealous boyfriend. After a few months of getting the rental home cleaned up, there aren ew people moving in. Should I make sure theyre a ware of what happened or should I keep quiet? Concerned in Missouri DearConcerned: Exactly what are you con-c erned about that the boyfriend will come back and stab the new renters? They should have already been informed about theh istory of the place by the person renting the property. But if they werent, I see little to be gained by your being the bearer of those bad tidings.

The Fox network has made Lopezs return official, along with her fellow judges, Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler and record producer Randy Jackson. In addition, Fox said Wednesday that Ryan Seacrest will be back as host. Lopez debuted as a judge this past season. But in recent weeks, she had publicly been coy about whether she would stay with the hit musical competition. Any lingering skepticism was dispelled last week by Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. He declared, unofficially, that Lopez would be back while interviewed on Seacrests radio program.

C M Y K LIVING 10B PA GE News-Sun Friday, August 19, 2011 MyBotanicPlanet FlowerInvestigationThers no betterway forstudents to investigate the parts of a flowerthan by dissecting real ones. Photo courtesy of Getty ImagesWhat you needEnough real flowers for pairs or groups to work together. Alstroemerias and gladiolus work well and are available year round in supermarket floral departments. Azaleas or any member of the lily family could also be used because the parts are well-defined and easy to see.Plastic knives and tweezers could be used for dissecting equipment.Amagnifying glass would allow for closer inspection.Getting startedOpen up the flower. This is easily done by first locating the base of the flower and slicing or splitting it in half. Use a dissection tool or even a fingernail.Next, slice or pinch off the petals. Remind students to be careful with all of the tiny pieces. Its easy to damage or brush away some of the most important parts.Review the parts of the flowerPetal: This is the colorful part of the flower that attracts the attention of birds, bees and butterflies, letting them know that there is food inside the flower. Have students record how many petals their flower has and what they look like.Stamen: This is where the pollen is made. For older students, you could also point out that the top part that holds the pollen is the anther and the stem part is called the filament. Students should record how many stamens their flower has. If it has six petals, it will also have six stamens. If they have an extra piece, then one should look a little bit different, and is actually part of the pistil.Pistil: This is where the seeds are made. The pistil is made of three different parts. The very top of the pistil is called the stigma. The stigma is where the pollen falls when a pollinator brings it in. The pollen travels down the tube (style goes down to the bottom (ovary will form. Split the pistil lengthwise to look inside. You should see unfertilized beginnings of seeds. The seed pattern inside will be the same pattern of seeds within the fruit later. If you cut an apple in half horizontally and see the five seeds in a star pattern, you will know that the flowers pistil had five compartments.Sepal: These are the tiny leaves on the lower part of the flower that protect it before it begins to bloom. Every flowering bud is hidden safely behind these two little leaves until the flower is fully developed. When the bloom begins to grow, the sepal will split open and the petals can break out.Next stepsForGrades K2Fold a piece of paper in half twice, creating four smaller panels. Go on a school discovery where kids draw pictures of various flowering plants. Have kids take home papers and draw flowers they see at home or in their neighborhood. Collect all of the images and sort the flowers according to color, type, where they were seen, etc. Then create a Students in Bloom bulletin board where the pictures are showcased. ForGrades 35PollinatorPower:Askstudentsto research a specific pollinator, such as bees, butterflies or moths, and find out where they live, how much nectar they eat, how many plants they visit in a day, etc., and report back to the class. For example, hummingbirds can visit up to 1,500 flowers a day and consume almost twice their body weight in nectar daily.Extension lessonEvery fruit began as a flower. In an apple, for example, the petals withered away and the ovary grew containing the seeds, but there are other parts still there, like the sepal and flower stem. Bring in various fruits to dissect and examine the seeds and other parts. Chart their similarities and differences.
