Carlson was postponed again on Wednesday. According to the Indian River Clerk of Courts, the motion to suppress evidence and to compel the prosecutor to suppress a videotape and findings taken when the 21-foot center console boat owned by Carlson was investigated has been reset to a future date by both sides. The next court activity listed on the docket is Oct. 10. The charges stem from an accident near Sebastian on July 24, 2010 when Carlsons boat struck a channel marker and his wife, Julie, was fatally injured. Carlson was arrested in November 2010, and charged with boating under the influence, manslaughter and vessel homicide after the boating accident. He pleaded not guilty to the felony and misdemeanor charges. Carlson was allegedly under the influence of alcohol, according to the original charge documents and statements made by witnesses at the time of the accident. Ablood test taken three hours after the incident showed that Carlsons blood alcohol level was .076. The legal limit in Florida is .080. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement calculated his blood Carlson manslaughter case postponed Carlson Wednesday afternoon was a busy one for Sebring rescue personnel. First, Jeffrey Price, 19, was riding an ATV when he collided with a pick-up truck on Astoria Avenue. He was thrown from the vehicle sustaining injuries, and sent to Tampa by helicopter from the Max Long Recreation Complex. He was treated and released. A short time later, a single car accident on U.S. 27 was paged out. The driver, who asked that she not be identified, said she had just reached for her sons bottle when she lost control of her car, ran off the highway and up the sloping swale where the car side swiped a light pole and rolled. Nobody was injured in that crash.

Rowan has initiated a civil suit against the city of Avon Park. His complaint concerns his suspension without pay on June 13th, which Rowan says was in retaliation for his investigations into possible unethical practices and violations of the sunshine laws by Mayor Sharon Schuler, Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray, Maria Sutherland, the citys project manager who has also served as interim city manager, and her husband, C. Parke Sutherland, who joined the city council on Jan. 2. In his letter Hill wrote: The value statement of your agency sets out in relevant part that the Avon Park Police Department's members have integrity that is beyond reproach, and are accountable for everything they do and constantly strive to maintain the highest standards and traditions of the Law Enforcement Profession. I reluctantly conclude that the pattern of conduct you (Rowan) have engaged in between January 2010 and present shows that you have failed States Atty. says Rowan conduct is troubling Hill says Rowan will be no longer called as witness Rowan See CARLSON, page 7A See ROWAN, page 6A By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The monthly Community Redevelopment Agency welcomed a special guest on Tuesday evening, Marjorie Ferrer. Ferrer is the executive director of the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority (DBDDA). Ferrer gave a special presentation at the Sebring Civic Center on Lake Jackson sharing numerous ideas, thoughts and strategies that would help the city of Sebring draw more tourists and residents to downtown. Ferrer headed the revitalization plans of Delray Beachs downtown beginning in 1993. She described Delray Beach before the overhaul as dark, dangerous and dirty. For 10 years, Ferrer and her team word diligently to create a destination that would bring residents of Delray Beach back and lure tourists to the area. You have a beautiful circle, a beautiful downtown ... but its not about us. Its about leaving something for those coming behind us, said Ferrer. The presentation included before and after photos of Delray Beachs central street, Atlantic Avenue. Sixty percent of Atlantic Avenues buildings were boarded up and empty. Ferrer partnered with the citys Chamber of Commerce, the CRA, and the city of Delray to create a joint venture. That partnership, Ferrer claims, is how downtown Delray Beach became what it is today. When youre small and everybody collaborates and everybody is working together, you have huge strength and you can move forward, Ferrer said. Many of Sebrings downtown business owners and dignitaries were present at the meeting. Most seemed very interested in Ferrers ideas and the accomplishSebring CRAhears ideas for revitalizing downtown News-Sun file The Sebring CRAhas been focused on ways to bring business back to the area around the Circle. Ferrer played key role in turning around downtown area of Delray Beach See CRA, page 6A

Enjoy COMMUNITYBRIEFS Continued on page 6A Upon learning that her husband had been killed in Afghanistan, Air Force Staff Sgt. Kim Pate needed to retrieve one treasured memento from her barracks in Kuwait before flying to Germany to meet her husbands flagdraped casket. The first thing I had to grab was a glow-in-thedark Care Bear named Chisel, Staff Sgt. Pate told the Unknown Soldiers. Hes a wish bear he glows in the dark, and hes supposed to protect me and keep me company whenever my husbands not there. Kim, 26, is an explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) technician just like her husband, Marine Gunnery Sgt. E.J. Pate, who was 29 years old when he was killed. The pressure-packed job involves some of the most dangerous assignments in post-9/11 war zones, which are filled with deadly improvised explosive devices (IEDs) planted by terrorists. Kims heart was filled with anxiety after fellow troops informed her of E.J.s tragic June 26 death in Afghanistans volatile Helmand province. Yet, arriving in Germany with Chisel, which got its name when Kim chiseled away the ice and walls from E.J.s heart as they fell in love, brought an unexpected sense of relief to the grieving airman. Knowing I was with him on every step of the journey the memorial in South Carolina, his last motorcycle ride, his burial at Arlington it was a wonderful feeling, she explained. I wish every (fallen heros spouse) was lucky enough to be able to do that. E.J. and Kim married in the fall of 2006 after meeting about a year earlier. During their courtship and throughout their marriage, the airman was drawn to the Marines ability to smile while doing a very tough job. He just had an infectious personality and was fun to be around, even if he was having a bad day, Kim said. Kim, who was trained by E.J. before her own overseas deployments, always kept in close contact with her husband as he faced danger during an incredible seven combat deployments. The other guys can tell their wives that everythings fine, she said. But I know what he does. Despite the risks, E.J. loved his job, and even after losing her husband, Kim still loves hers. She attributes her positive outlook, even in the wake of incomprehensible tragedy, to E.J.s undying optimism. He brought out the best in people and in any situation, Kim explained. He made me a better person...a person that I will strive to continue to be for him. A loss to bear See BEAR, page 6A Special to the News-SunMARCO ISLAND The Aktion Club of Highlands County proved that hard work does pay off as they swept up several awards at the Aktion Club District Conference at Marco Island on Aug. 26 and 27 which now qualifies them for a higher competition. The club's members Ralph Meyers, president; Sara Canali, vice president; Angie Luft, secretary; and Teresa Messer, treasurer; Eva Monk, member; and Cindy Marshall, club advisor brought home four trophies and two honorable mention medals. This was awesome, Canali said about winning so many awards. I am extremely proud of all the club members who have worked very hard this past year in doing good deeds in the community, Marshall said. The club has 60 members with disabilities who demonstrate that they have the ability to accomplish great things if the community will just give them the chance. They all have such kind hearts and they want to give so much back to help others who are in a more desperate need. They earned these awards. The Single Service Award was the top honor bestowed upon the club for their AdoptA-Family project during the 2010 holiday season. They won first place for adopting five families with a total of eight children who had disabilities. The club collected food, clothing, toys and cash for the families. Santa Claus visited each family with his elves to drop off all the wrapped presents. They also visited seven other families and individuals who were either elderly, disabled or home alone. It was an honor to win this award, Meyers said. We worked hard this year. They said at the conference that most Aktion Clubs worked harder than some Kiwanis Clubs. Ascrapbook was designed by members Luft and Canali to reflect on the projects and activities done the entire year. It also won first place. It felt good to win first for our scrapbook, Luft said. Sara and I worked hard on it and we did it all by ourselves. First place in the Poster Contest was won by Kerrie Baker, of Highlands County, for her poster entry depicting her being a leader in her club or community. Luft won second. Highlands County members Mac Smith and Frances Goff received honorable mention medals for their posters. First and second place entries received trophies. The scrapbook, service project entry and Baker's poster are now being advanced to the international level for judging. Aktion Club is a civic club comprised of adults with disabilities. The local club is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Sebring. The district conference was sponsored by the Florida District of Kiwanis International and the Florida Kiwanis Foundation. The event was held at the Marco Island Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Jen Wickham isnt a stranger to childbirth. She and her husband Byron have been through the birthing process three times before Sunday night. What the couple hasnt ever done is deliver one of their children themselves, but Jen can now scratch that off of her bucket list. The Wickhamwere on their way to Florida Hospital late Sunday night after Jens water broke in their home. The couple entered their car at 11:45 p.m. and headed up U.S. 27. Byron knew that his wife had a track record of short labors, but he wasnt prepared when his wife asked him to stop on the side of the highway. Pull over. The babys coming, Wickham said his wife told him. Byron wasnt completely convinced that the baby was arriving and asked his wife to hold on for a few more minutes. When the Wickhams were less than half a mile from Sun N Lake Boulevard, Jen urged her husband once more to pull over. This time Byron listened. I looked down into the passenger seat and saw Jen catching the baby. She pulled her onto her chest, said Wickham. Wickham checked his watch. It was 11:59 p.m.. Wickham then continued onto Florida Heartland Hospital. The umbilical cord was still attached to the mother as Wickham rushed into the ER and asked for assistance for his wife. Wickham informed the staff that Jen had just selfdelivered their baby. Wickham placed herself and her newborn in the wheelchair after a few moments of frustration and was taken into the hospital. Jen and daughter Talya were released after two days of care and are now home safe and healthy. Talya weighed in at 6 pounds, 3 ounces. She is 20 inches long. Fourth child a special delivery for couple Mom delivers in car on way to hospital I am extremely proud of all the club members ... They earned these awards.CINDYMARSHALL club advisor

C M Y K Many people see the world at a crossroads, with divergent paths among which we must choose.We arent at a crossroads, however. In fact, there are no paths before us at all. Weve arrived at a place where no one has been before in the present, where everything in front of us is still unexplored primeval forest so to speak. To move forward, we have to hack out a path on our own. We are not tourists with maps and a guidebook. In other words, we are pioneers facing the unknown. That makes our choices much more complicated than simply picking a path. We have to figure out in which direction to go, and how to navigate through the physical challenges bound to face us. We have to decide how we measure successful choices from failed ones, and how to work together in a common cause; we have to agree on a common cause. The only way we can do that, however, is by talking to one another and listening in turn. Which is why we despair over the tone of our national conversation, and the polarization occurring even here at home. It seems as if too many of us mistake ideas for actions. Thinking about something doesnt mean it will happen. Ideas by themselves are not dangerous; its what we do about an idea that causes consequences. We mention this because well all benefit by cooling our passions, fears and overconfidence. If ever there was a time for considered discussion, this time is it. Unfortunately, considered discussion is sorely lacking. Instead, for example, blogs are filled with angry, insulting language focused on demeaning other people. In person, like-minded individuals tend to gather together and spend their time reinforcing each others conclusions. There is little effort to reach out and consider differences of opinion. After more than 200 years, our history now colored by legend, we forget that the founding fathers were never in perfect agreement, that compromise is what brought our nation into being. We have faith in the American people, and particularly the residents of Highlands County there have been too many moments of shared sacrifice, common problem solving, living up to our potential and learning from our mistakes to give up hope entirely. But we have to trust each other.We need to remember that people who disagree with us arent traitors, that it is a good thing when people disagree. The truth of any situation is most often found somewhere between two opposing ideas, and when it comes to problem solving, the more varied the experiences brought to bear, the more likely a solution. America is her people not her scenic views, or even her wealth of resources America is us. For better and worse, generations before us have found their way during terrible times. The News-Sun believes we can, too. So, lets talk. Page 4ANews-SunFriday, September 2, 2011www.newssun.comTODAYSEDITORIAL 2227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 863-385-6155 NEWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. 515editor@newssun.com SCOTT DRESSELEditor Ext. 516scott.dressel@newssun.comDAN HOEHNESports Editor Ext. 528daniel.hoehne@newssun.com ADVERTISINGVICKIE JONESExt. 518vickie.jones@newssun.com CIRCULATIONTONY MCCOWANExt. 522anthony.mccowan@newssun.com BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONExt. 596legals@newssun.com EDITORIAL& OPINION Civilized debate is always a good thing The Moche lived in northern Peru from about 100-700 A.D. Their molded ceramics are still a highlight in the annals of human accomplishment. If you walk through a museum of pre-Columbian art, its easy to spot a Moche piece the faces are so realistic you expect them to wink at you. Around 500 A.D., the world was experiencing some drastic climate changes. There was a super El Nino weather phenomenon on the west coast. Cataclysmic floods were followed by drought. The Moche, like most ancient peoples, are thought to have been very religious. They wanted to thwart this devastation and improve the weather by trying to appease their gods. So they sacrificed masses of their citizens. Just slaughtered hundreds of people in hopes of saving more. Does this sound like religious extremism? Yes. Because it is. Negotiating with nature is a very ancient thing to do: Pre-science, pre-wheel, pre-written language. As a species, weve always seen patterns in natural events and taken it personally. Floods are because of sin droughts are because of witches. Earthquakes are Gods anger towards womens suffrage and Chinese immigration, etc. But now we know better. At least, some of us do. Sort of. Now we know the Earths crust shifts. It always has. All our continents used to be one; scientists refer to it as Pangaea. We know that continuing shift results in earthquakes. Instead of hurricanes just appearing all of a sudden as a result of moral shortcomings, we can now track them via satellite for days. There is also a growing understanding about how global warming has intensified weather patterns, hurricanes have been made worse by pollution and the extraction process for natural gas known as fracking has caused earthquakes. Yes, we have a greater knowledge of weather and seismic activities than ever before. So when the East Coast experienced a rare earthquake, there was an archaic response from religious leaders. It wasnt that these things happen on this planet we all live on it was because of gay marriage. Rabbi Yehuda Levin told his YouTube audience, (We) are starting to see the connection. As if the earth never moved before cake toppers had two grooms. Its ghoulish opportunism. Just like in the wake of the quake that nearly leveled Haiti and killed thousands, televangelist Pat Robertson claimed it was because Haitians made a pact with the devil to liberate themselves from slavery 200 years ago. So Robertsons devil ran an 18th century anti-slavery Caribbean underground railroad? Wouldnt that be a good thing? He has an odd religion. He also chimed into the what did we do to deserve a non-fatal earthquake in DC? discussion by claiming a crack in the Washington Monument meant something beyond why not to build a 555foot marble obelisk on swampland. Then there was a hurricane in the same area within a week. For capitalizing atmospheric interpreters its show time! Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann told a rally in Florida the state with the highest proportion of elderly (think Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries) and hurricanes in the country that these events are a warning about government spending. Because weather is a quid pro quo with God and the Republican Partys agenda. Its time to build a wall (or a levee) between church and weather. Natural disasters arent punishment. And religion isnt a Doppler radar. In 1693, the Massachusetts colonists thought a hurricane there marked the Apocalypse. In April 2011, Texas Gov. Rick Perry issued an official proclamation for Texans to pray for rain for three days. Rain has yet to come and its categorized as a D4 Drought (there is no D5). What does this mean? Nothing. It means church and weather should get a divorce and block each others numbers. Since church and state are no longer the same thing, church should secede from climatology. Its not for the sake of the weather its really for the sake of the churchs credibility. Because really, we could stop letting gays marry, eat all our vegetables, never cheat on our spouses and get to church three times a week it wont stop the weather...or the world.

The case for separation of church & weather Guest Column Tina Dupuy Three years in, and the Obama administrations attempts to fix unemployment have been about as effective as trying to scratch your ear with your elbow. Despite countless tricks, schemes and maneuvers to change the labor outlook in this country, the administration either lacks the ability to work their way through the problem, or it simply refuses to for fear of going against the Progressive agenda. Good leaders usually surround themselves with those qualified to make up for their weaknesses. Given Obamas obvious executive experience shortfalls, one could only hope he would have chosen experts, rather than far-left job-killing ideologues, which are to job-creation what Hurricane Irene was to the East Coast. As Obama prepares yet another speech to introduce his latest and greatest plan to jump-start the economy and create jobs, his hand-picked minions are scurrying to-and-fro doing his dirty work. One shining example is General Electric (GE) CEO Jeffrey Immelt, who Obama appointed as chairman of Obamas Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Immelts appointment seemed illogical considering under his watch, GEs stock dropped nearly 60 percent and Immelt was named as one of the five worst CEOs in 2008 not to forget his business dealings with Iran and weaseling out of paying corporate taxes. Nonetheless, Immelt was appointed. Speaking at a GE plant in Schenectady, NY, in January, President Obama recognized Immelt as someone who understands what it takes for America to compete in the global economy. Im sure it is somehow Bushs fault, but somewhere between Obamas mouth and my ears, the word compete got lost in translation. To the average person, competing in the global economy means winning, but it apparently means something quite different to those who embrace spread the wealth ideology. For Immelt, it obviously means spreading Americas jobs around to China. On August 24, 2011, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-OH demanded that Immelt resign in order to save the Obama administration the embarrassment of his firing. In a press release, Kucinich accused Immelt of exporting highlysophisticated technology to the Chinese in order to book short-term profits for GE. Referring to a report in the Washington Post, Kucinich claimed Immelt gave airplane display system Synthetic Vision technology created by NASA and subsidized by American taxpayers. U.S. taxpayersinvestments, Kucinich wrote, will end up creating jobs in China. Kucinich claims under Immelts leadership, GE has cut onefifth of its US workforce while increasing overseas employment. Kucinich closed with the statement that Immelt is more qualified to be head of Jobs and Competitiveness for a country other than the United States. The job-killing mania does not stop here, but continues with the Obama administration recently making a brazen attempt to dictate where a large job-creating company, Boeing, can and cannot produce its 787 Dreamliner aircraft. According to the New York TimesJoe Nocera, Boeing has Dreamliners on order to be built by non-union workers at a plant in North Charleston, South Carolina. The word non-union is significant here, and the Obama administration has its fingerprints all over the recent action taken by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which is filled with a number of labor unionloving Obama appointee zealots who care more about unions than they do about the 5000 North Charleston workers who may be unemployed, if the NLRB complaint against Boeing is not reversed. Five thousand workers in Charleston pales in comparison to the recent discovery that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), under the direction of Obama appointee Lisa Jackson, is expected to unroll new ozone regulations that, according to a Manufacturers Alliance study, could cost up to 7.3 million jobs by 2020. Obama has wasted three years playing golf, appeasing his political allies and promoting his Progressive agenda rather than creating jobs, and is blind to the suffering of everyday Americans, many of whom would like to celebrate the possibility of a job to go to on this Labor Day 2011.

C M Y K IVETTE DUNHAM Ivette Lorino Dunham, age 67, of Sebring, passed away on Friday, Aug. 26, 2011 after a lengthy illness. Ivette was a small business owner of Garinos, a family restaurant for many years in LakePlacid and Sebring. She also worked as an account executive for the local radio stations, WCAC and WWOJ in Sebring.

Preliminary figures released this week show a 10 percent decline in delinquency referrals during the budget year ending June 30. An exact figure hasnt yet been determined, but Department of Juvenile Justice officials expect it to be less than 110,000. That compares to 121,689 in the previous fiscal year. Delinquency referrals peaked 16 years ago at 123 for every 1,000 children aged 10 through 17.

Hearing the stories from other guys he truly was one of the best, she said. He was always ten steps ahead of whatever the problem was. Despite their talent and expertise, the Pates knew that one or both of them could easily be killed on the battlefield. Its the nature of a job that only a handful of valiant Americans are capable of doing. It might be kind of an eerie feeling to know walking up on an IED that it was the last thing my husband did, and I could die doing the same thing, the brave airman said. But I feel drawn over there. Its a hard thing to explain; we have a constant pull over there as it is, and its kind of amplified now.

No matter where I am, from Iraq to training sites, theres not a night I dont have him, she said. While thinking back to their final conversation, Staff Sgt. Kim Pate said there will never be a night when the memory of Gunnery Sgt. E.J. Pate isnt with her too. One of the last things I heard from him was that he was really tired and had a long day out, the Marines widow said.

Accordingly, I will direct my assistants that you will no longer be relied on to give testimony as a witness in criminal prosecutions in the Tenth Judicial Circuit. Hill does not cite particular incidents of wrong behavior by Rowan. Hill does refer to a state attorney investigation regarding deletions made on Rowans office computer, in which the state attorneys investigator, Michael Ivancevich, found Rowan had not done anything unethical or illegal. Hill wrote: During the course of that (computer) investigation, we discovered a pattern of conduct on your part that I find troubling. Standing in isolation, the incidents that Investigator Ivancevich details would be cause for concern. Taken in their totality, they rise to a level that this office cannot ignore. The letter is dated Aug. 25. Robert H. Grizzard II, Rowans attorney, said that he was surprised by the letter and that as of Thursday morning, Rowan had not received a hard copy. In fact, Grizzard said, it was he who received an unofficial scanned copy and forwarded it to Rowan Tuesday afternoon. Grizzard added that the letter, addressed to Rowan at the Avon Park police station, had not been forwarded to Rowan, nor had he been informed of its existence. It appears Mr. Hill made his decision based on an investigation we have always said was incomplete, Grizzard said. Chief Rowan was never interviewed (by Ivancevich). Grizzard also said Rowan was not included in the fact-finding. The letter should have no impact on the civil case hearing currently under way, Grizzard said. Highlands County Assistant States Attorney Steve Houchin told the News-Sun he was unaware a letter was being prepared, that it came directly from Hills Bartow office and he nothing to do with it. Chip Thulberry, public information officer for the state attorneys office, said that these types of letter are sent from time to time. I dont think its rare, he said, adding that Ivancevichs reports first into Rowans investigation of Avon Park officials, and then into complaints filed by the city officials against Rowan were the basis for the letter of reprimand. When asked why a different investigator hadnt been appointed to the second investigation, Thulberry said, I suppose there are different ways to do it. Our investigator already knew all the players, it seemed the most logical. He added that while it was appropriate for the Avon Park Police Department to investigate possible wrongdoing within city limits, the investigations cast questions about Rowans motivations, which had changed Hills mind regarding Rowans real intentions. Ivancevichs first investigation concluded that Rowan filed his charges in retaliation after not being selected city manager in the spring of 2010. Thulberry also said it was up to the discretion of the state attorney as to whom was a credible witness and that Hills barring Rowan from testifying as a witness in a criminal proceeding only applies to the 10th Judicial District. When contacted by the News-Sun, Rowan declined to comment and referred all questions to Grizzard. Julian Deleon, Avon Park city manager, said on Thursday that he had no comment at this time. Continued from page 1A Rowan gets letter of rebuke from States Attorney During the course of that (computer) investigation, we discovered a pattern of conduct on your part that I find troubling.JERRYHILL states attorney, in letter to Michael Rowan ments of the DBDDA. Ferrer insisted that the partnerships between the city entities is vital to the revitalization of downtown. Retail is what will drive tourists to downtown Sebring, she said, and that also is what will drive people to become residents of downtown Sebring. People can only eat one time. Theyll sit and have a meal, but if there is no place else to go then theyll leave, Ferrer said. The Whats Up Downtown committee has several events scheduled for downtown Sebring throughout the month of September. Ferrer believes events is what is needed to draw people in. The special events get them coming in. Then you need restaurants and places where people can socialize. You have to use your assets and use it to get people there, Ferrer said. Ferrer was happy to see community members interested and engaged in the presentation. For Ferrer, it is what she believes will help with bringing life to downtown. Casey (Wohl) is very fired up about moving forward. I left with about 30 business cards. It was nice to see such a good turnout and so many people ready to move forward. It was a huge energy, Ferrer said. Ferrer plans to return to Sebring in the near future to speak with CRAmembers and share more ideas that this community could use to enhance and revitalize downtown Sebring.

Amotion to suppress the blood alcohol in January was denied by Judge Robert L. Pegg in March. According to the initial report, witness at the restaurant told investigators that Carlson had at least three drinks before leaving a restaurant just minutes before the accident. In taped statements, Scott and Annie Noethlich, passengers at the time of the accident, both told FWC Investigator Kevin L. Hansen that Carlson was not in full control of his facilities when he took the helm of the boat after dinner, dancing and drinks at Capt. Hirams restaurant. Scott and Annie Noethlich also confirmed that the boats forward Q-Beam spotlight, used for night navigation, was not working properly, that Carlson was trying to navigate in the dark by his Hummingbird GPS and that he was looking down when the boat struck the channel marker. Pictures show extensive damage to the port side of the vessel, and clear signs of damage to the channel marker as well. The pictures also show empty beer bottles on the boat, including one in the cup holder of the console that was opened, perspiring and still cool to the touch, according to incident reports from the Sebastain Police Department. Witnesses at the restaurant also stated that Carlson left the dock and put the 21-foot Pro-Line bay boat up on plane within 50 yards of the dock. Gov. Charlie Crist suspended Carlson from the Highlands County Board of County Commission in December, and no replacement has been selected by incoming Gov. Rick Scott. Twenty individuals have applied for that seat on the commission. Ryan Butler, State Attorney for the 19th Judicial Circuit, stated in an earlier interview that the maximum penalty could be up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Continued from page 1A Carlson case continued Associated PressCOPELAND Florida wildlife officials searched Thursday for an alligator that attacked a 90-year old woman and nearly severed her leg, which doctors later had to amputate. Longtime resident Margaret Webb was walking near her home in a small southwest Florida community Wednesday when an eight-foot long alligator lunged out of a canal and bit Webbs leg. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman Gabriela Ferraro said a neighbor was driving by and saw the alligator trying to drag Webb into the water. The man Dwyane Daniels, who Ferraro called a good Samaritan pulled out a gun and tried to shoot the gator. The reptile crawled away and Daniels dialed 911. Webb was airlifted to a Naples hospital, where she is in critical condition. Ferraro said officers initially thought the alligator had swallowed Webbs leg, but that wasnt the case. Her leg was barely attached after the attack and was later amputated, Ferraro said. Officers want to find and trap the alligator, she said. When a person is bitten, our priority is to remove the suspect alligator, she said. Because Daniels shot at the alligator, its possible that it is already dead. Daniels is an airboat operator in the Everglades and has known Webb his entire life. Residents describe Webb as being like a grandma to everyone in the small community. About five people are bitten each year in Florida by unprovoked alligators, officials said. The attack happened in Copeland, a small town in Collier County with a population of 275 people that near the Everglades. Womans leg amputated after gator attack Associated PressWESTPALM BEACH Katia became the second named hurricane of the season in the Atlantic Ocean on Wednesday, but forecasters said it was too soon to determine where it might head. The National Hurricane Center in Miami cautioned the public still recovering along parts of the East Coast from Irene not to stress over the storm. It is over warm waters and in a low wind shear environment, two ingredients that could propel it to become a major hurricane, likely by the weekend. But its too soon to tell if it will ever come near land. Its got a lot of ocean to go. Theres no way at this point to say if it will make any impacts, let alone when it might make them, said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist and spokesman at the National Hurricane Center. Theres a reason we dont do forecasts more than five days in advance the information just isnt good. The error beyond that just isnt acceptable. As of 11 p.m., Katia was still centered about 1,800 miles (3,000 kilometers) east of the Leeward Islands and was moving west-northwest near 20 mph (32 kph). Maximum sustained winds were 75 mph (121 kph). Also becoming an area of concern is a thunderstorm cluster over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. It has a high chance of becoming a tropical storm in the next two days, the hurricane center said. National Weather Service meteorologist Fred Zeigler said the system could bring rain to coastal Mississippi and Louisiana but its too early to tell whether it will mean anything worse. Most models used to track such systems are struggling to predict whether it will move toward Brownsville, Texas, or the Florida Panhandle, he said. As for Katia, some models show it veering away from the East Coast. But Feltgen said its simply too soon for coastal residents to tell. Folks along the East Coast shouldnt be getting a lot of heartburn over this not yet, he said. Too early to forecast threat from distant Hurricane Katia

C M Y K By MICHAELHILLand SAMANTHAHENRY Associated PressWALLINGTON, N.J. As the flood waters receded, weary residents across the Northeast began pulling soggy furniture and ruined possessions onto their front lawns as they surveyed the damage wrought by Hurricane Irene. The mess of destroyed furniture on Paul Postmas front lawn looked like a yard sale gone wrong. Over the weekend, Postma had watched as more than two feet of rain filled the bottom level of his home in Lincoln Park, N.J. On Wednesday, he was using bleach to wipe down the houses mud-soaked walls. None of this has value, he said. At least not anymore. On Sunday, President Barack Obama will visit Paterson, N.J., where currents of the Passaic River swept through the city of 150,000, flooding part of downtown and forcing the emergency evacuations of hundreds of people who likely underestimated the storms ferocity. National Guard helicopters continued to ferry supplies on Wednesday to mountain communities in Vermont that had no electricity, no telephone service and limited transportation in or out. Elsewhere, the massive cleanup effort was already well underway at homes, farms and businesses across the flood-scarred landscape. Repair estimates indicated that the storm would almost certainly rank among the nations costliest natural disasters, despite packing a lighter punch than initially feared. Even as rivers finally stopped rising in Vermont, New Jersey, and Connecticut, many communities and farm areas remained flooded, and officials said complete damage estimates were nowhere in sight. An estimate released immediately after Irene by the Kinetic Analysis Corp., a Maryland-based consulting firm that uses computer models to estimate storm losses, put the damage at $7.2 billion in eight states and Washington, D.C. That would eclipse damage from Hurricane Bob, which caused $1 billion in damage in New England in 1991 or the equivalent of about $1.7 billion today, and Hurricane Gloria, which swept through the region in 1985 and left $900 million in damage, the equivalent of $1.9 billion today, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Large sections of Wallington, N.J. remained underwater after a cruel onetwo punch: The Passaic River flooded the heart-shaped hamlet Sunday and then receded, only to rise again late Tuesday, forcing a new round of evacuations. Sunday morning, the water was only up to here, said Kevin OReilly, gesturing to where his front lawn used to meet the sidewalk. My daughter and I took a walk around the block. We figured everything would be fine. Only hours later, waves were bouncing off the house, and the basement windows shattered. It sounded like Niagara Falls, OReilly said. It just filled up immediately, and this is what weve been dealing with since then. The town is accustomed to moderate flooding because it sits atop a network of underground streams that form a water table already saturated by record August rainfall. In Vermont, at Killington Elementary School, residents came for a free hot dog and corn-on-the-cob. Jason and Angela Heaslip picked up a bag filled with peanut butter, cereal and toilet paper for their three children and three others who are visiting from Long Island. Right now, theyre getting little portions because were trying to make the food last, said Jason Heaslip, who only has a dollar in his bank account because the storm has kept him from getting paid by the resort where he works. Don Fielder, a house painter in Gaysville, Vt., said the White River roared through his house, tearing the first floor off the foundation and filling a bathroom tub with mud. He was upbeat as he showed a visitor the damage, but said hes reluctant to go into town for fear he will cry when people ask about the home he built himself 16 years ago. Other losses include a 1957 Baldwin piano and a collection of 300 Beanie Babies amassed by his daughter, who does not live with him but has a bedroom at his house. I bet thats in the river, he said. Irene has led to the deaths of at least 45 people in 13 states. If that death toll stands, it would be comparable to 1999s Hurricane Floyd, which also struck North Carolina and charged up the East Coast into New England, causing most of its 57 deaths by inland drowning. At the time, it was the deadliest U.S. hurricane in nearly 40 years but was later dwarfed by the 1,800 deaths caused by Katrina in 2005. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo estimated the damage to his state alone at $1 billion during a visit to Prattsville, a Catskills community where 600 homes were damaged by heavy rains and floods that also shredded roads and washed out bridges. Upstate New York paid a terrible, terrible price for this storm, Cuomo said. In North Carolina, where Irene blew ashore along the Outer Banks on Saturday before heading for New York and New England, Gov. Beverly Perdue said the hurricane destroyed more than 1,100 homes and caused at least $70 million in damage. Downstream from Vermonts devastating floods, the Connecticut River hit levels not seen in 24 years, but Middletown Mayor Sebastian Giuliano said the situation was not much worse than annual spring floods caused by snowmelt. In Simsbury, Conn., several farm fields were flooded along the Farmington River. Pumpkins and other produce could be seen floating away. Farmers lost a good amount of crops, said First Selectwoman Mary Glassman. After floods in 1955, New England states installed flood-control dams and basins that helped prevent a catastrophe along the lower Connecticut River, said Denise Ruzicka, director of inland water resources for Connecticuts Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Power outages persisted across the region, with some of the largest in Connecticut, where more than 284,000 homes and businesses were still in the dark Wednesday, and Virginia, where 232,500 customers had no lights. In the ski resort town of Killington, Vt., residents were volunteering to use their lawn tractors to help remove mud and debris. People with electricity were letting neighbors without water use their showers. One question was whether the camaraderie would wear thin before things returned to normal. Karen Dalury, who did not have power at her home, said she had been eating vegetables from her garden and storing some in a neighbors freezer. For now its fine, she said, but who knows how long this is going to continue. With Irene gone, scientists turned their attention to the open Atlantic Ocean, where Tropical Storm Katia was gaining strength and forecast to become a hurricane by early next week. Meteorologists said it was too soon to determine where it might go.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comMuch like Lake Placids Tuesday night contest with Clewiston, so too were the Lady Blue Streaks taking on an earlyseason opponent, at Hardee, that should have served as little more than a tune-up to the rest of the regular season. And while the Lady Tigers brought the Dragons down to their level at times, that was something Sebring purposely sought to avoid. I was worried that we might come down in our level of play, head coach Vanessa Sinness said. But we played like we did against Okeechobee. Coming out with 25-8 and 25-10 wins in the first two sets, that was our statement that we were going to play at this level regardless of who were playing. Those two early routes were finished off with a cleared-bench, 25-15 clinching win for the three-game sweep. Thats not to say, however, that the Lady Wildcats didnt bring some resistance. They had some really good blockers, which surprised us, Sinness said. And they have a hitter that they set for three times and she got two kills. Just imagine if they could set her up more often. But it was the overall team effort, with many strong performances that carried the match for Sebring. We served the crud out of the ball, Sinness said. I bet we served 96-percent as a team with only two or three missed serves all night. Adding to the efficiency were many of the Lady Streaks adding a jump serve to their repertoire. Meghan (Lollis) jump served, Lyndsey (Whittington) did some jump serves when she got in, Sinness said. Bella (Carabella) probably had 20 jump serves between the three games. Were just looking really good right now and the underclassmen are really pushing the seniors, which is great to see. Sebring looked to continue their roll Thursday with a visit from Lake Placid in what is perennially an epic battle between the county rivals. From there, the Streaks are off until next Thursday when DeSoto comes to town for a non-district contest.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID In the early goings of a season, facing a young, still building team can be beneficial in continuing to work on things and get the bench some game experience. But it can also lead to a lower intensity and playing down to the level of such a team. Which was the case, on both counts, Thursday in Lake Placids lackluster, three-set sweep of visiting Clewiston. The difference in level of ability and play was evident from the beginning, though the Lady Dragons didnt fully take advantage. After bouncing out to an early lead, unforced errors began to pile up the points for the Lady Tigers. At 17-11, the majority of Clewiston scores were the result of Lake Placid service errors, net contact and a sloppy offense. Still, the opening set soon ended with a 25-14 score before the second set started down a similar path. The Tigers actually got on the board first, but the Dragons roared back for a 10-4 lead. That gap, however, would close to within four on a number of occasions, as late as 18-14. Lake Placid stretched it out again to 24-15, but allowed another three Clewiston scores before finally closing it out, 25-18. Games like these are used to take advantage and work on some different things and treat it like a Lady Dragons claw past Clewiston See LP, Page 4B News-Sun file photo by LAUREN WELBORN Bella Carabella was a jump-serving dynamo in Sebrings sweep of Hardee Tuesday.

Special to the News-SunSebring Youth Football and Cheer played another tough day of football Saturday, Aug. 27. The Thunderbolts traveled to DeSoto where they were only able to come up with one win for the day. The day kicked off with the Flag division, a 20 0 loss, coached by Jeremy Daugherty. Daugherty said that the Lil' Bolts picked up momentum in the second half but, just couldn't put a score on the board. The Mitey Mite division, coached by Ron Shiflet, put up a win with 19 0 against Desoto to pick up the lone win of the day The Thunderbolt Pee Wee team, coached by Ira Hill, took the field and saw huge improvements. The Bulldogs, however, were able to dominate this game and Sebring took 250 loss. The Bolts and Bulldogs final matchup of the day was the Juniors, coached by Luke Ancrum. While the Bolts were able to put points on the board, they were unable to run away with the win with a final score for the Juniors 26-6. While the Bolts were away the Blue Streaks took the field against long time rival Avon Park. There was plenty of build-up and tons of anticipation for this day of football. Unfortunately for the Streaks, the Red Devils had a lot more gusto on Saturday as the Streaks came away with just one win. The Flag division, coached by David Young, made some tough plays and put six points on the board. But Avon Park put up a few more, working out their kinks from the previous week, for a 18-6 win. The Streaks then sent out their Mitey Mite division, coached by Chris Gilbert. The team was just unable to put anything together against last Tough going for SYF See SYF, Page 3B Special to the News-SunThe Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC) hosted their first home game on Saturday, Aug. 27 at the Avon Park High School field. The Eagles were taking on the Dundee Hornets after playing last weeks season opener in Lake Wales. The first team to take the field was the Flag team, ages 5and 6-years old and lead by head coach Bob Ford. The Flag team had another rough outing this week against Dundee. Fred Hankerson scored on two long runs. and Ezera Jackson hooked up with Kaden DAmico for a nice two-point conversion to have the lead 14-13 at halftime. The second half was not so kind to Eagles fans when the Hornets scored two touchdowns. The offense tried to mount a comeback when Jackson took a quarterback keeper in for a five-yard touchdown. But the Hornets would answer right back with their own score, ending the game with a 32-20 margin. Next to take the field was the Mighty Might team, ages 7, 8 and 9 and lead by head coach Willis McGuire. The Eagles were pumped and ready after last weeks victory over the Gators. But it was the Hornets offense came out strong and quickly took control of the game. The defense rallied together with Dylan Shaw leading the team by example, giving all his effort and heart into the game to trying and make something happen. The Eagles offense was struggling when Pyshon Mathis threw a 35-yard pass to Ryan Brown.

C M Y K Scooter McGuire then ran the ball in from three yards out for the only touchdown of the day for the Eagles in the 26-6 loss. The Pee Wee team, ages 10 and 11 and lead by head coach Tim Hooks, were eager and ready after last weeks win. The game started off with a six-play drive led by offensive lineman Jordan Rose and Jay Bishop plowing the way for Thurlow Wilkins. Wilkins ran in from 19 yards to put the Eagles up 6-0. Quarterback Anthony Rosado lead the next drive by handing the ball off to Kasey Hawthorne for a 48 yard touchdown and TJ Cadillac Williams in for the extra point. Marquis Hawthorn ran 26 yards for his first touchdown of the year and a pass by Wilkins to Williams earned the Eagles an extra point. The defense, lead by linebacker Austin Oppold and lineman James Gotkiewicz, kept the Hornets on their heels all day long. The defense had another shutout, not allowing the Hornets any points on the board and taking the first win of the day, 32-0. Following the Pee Wee game, the Junior Varsity team, ages 12 and 13 and managed by head coach Cliff Howell, took the field with the Hornets. The game got off to a great start in the second drive of the game. Quarterback Sammy Smith got around the end, breaking two tackles to go the distance on a 91-yard touchdown to take an early lead, 6-0. The JVEagles defense came out strong as Akem JnPierre picked off a pass and ran the ball in for the second touchdown and a 12-0 halftime lead. After halftime, the defense stood strong. Key tackles were made by Rodrigo Nolan, Rafael Smith, Jalen Williams, Trace Thompson and Davonya Cricket Hunter to shut down the Hornet offense. The Eagles offense made several strides in the second half with Rafael Smith running the ball in for a touchdown and Timothy Jordan scoring the extra point, taking the second win and shutout of the day with a final score of 19-0. Last game of the day was the Varsity team, ages 13, 14 and 15 and lead by head coach John Bishop. The Eagles took the field with pride, focused and ready for some football after last weeks loss to the Gators. Cole Kilgo lead the team in passing, completing fourof-seven attempts for 50 yards, as well as having some major key runs. His leading receiver was Malik Taylor who caught 4 passes for 81 yards. Taylor also recovered a key fumble with 2:30 left in the game with the Eagles down 7-0. Lane Hammond then broke free on a 31-yard run to the end zone making the score 7-6. Before the Eagles were able to attempt the extra point, both teams were sent off the field due to lightning. When the Eagles returned to the field some 30 minutes later, Tyler Edwards would go in for a two-point conversion to give the Eagles the lead 8-7. The Eagles defense then came out and shut down the Dundee offense. On the final play of the game, Bennaum Loculien caused a fumble which ended all hope for the Hornets. The Varsity team took their first win of the season in a dogfight of a game with a final score of 8-7. All in all it was a great day of football. The stands were filled with Eagles fans and the concession stand was a happening place. The Eagles won three out of five games for the day and all the hard work to prepare for the first home game surely paid off with the results on the field. The HYF Board of Directors would like to again express their sincere thanks and appreciation to the Avon Park High School Athletic Department and Band for allowing the use of their facilities as well as the parents, players, cheerleaders and coaches for their participation and contributions.

C M Y K By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressCORALGABLES Miami is getting some support from a most unlikely source: Florida State, the schools archrival. Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher says he wishes Miamis Al Golden nothing but the best as the Hurricanes continue dealing with the initial wave of fallout from a scandal surrounding extra benefits provided by a former booster. The NCAAtold Miami on Tuesday that 12 players must pay restitution, and eight need to sit out at least one game before they can return to the field. Fisher says you dont want that to happen to anybody. He made his comments Wednesday on an Atlantic Coast Conference coaches call. The former Miami booster, Nevin Shapiro, is serving a 20-year prison sentence for bilking investors out of $930 million in a Ponzi scheme. Olivier Vernon must sit six games for taking benefits from Shapiro during the recruiting process, and Ray Ray Armstrong and Dyron Dye must sit four games each for similar reasons. Jacory Harris, Sean Spence, Marcus Forston, Travis Benjamin and Adewale Ojomo will all sit one game, Mondays ACC opener at Maryland. Page 4BNews-SunFriday, September 2, 2011www.newssun.com E.O.

Weve finally got things working right, but we need to focus on playing our game regardless of who is on the other side of the net. With the match well in hand, Wells pulled the starters for the third set to allow the bench to get the playing time that will come in handy as the season moves along. The 25-18 final showed that the Lady Dragon bench will be a valuable asset. As is someone else Wells had praise for on this night. (Libero) Brittany (Collison) had an awesome game for us again, she said. We will see amazing stuff from her. Weve been working on our serve receive and weve got it figured out and it showed tonight in our digs and in covering our holes. So an off night, in the intensity department, though a win is a win, with some positives to go along with it. Intensity wasnt likely to be a problem Thursday as the annual inter-county rivalry was renewed with Lake Placid visiting Sebring. We will definitely be up for that, Wells said. We cant wait.

C M Y K DearPharmacist: I just dealt with the ramifications of the earthquake in Virginia and now a hurricane is barreling towards us. What tips can you offer? T.R., Richmond, Va. Answer: Great question. Depending on where we live, we might face earthquakes, tornadoes, power outages, flash floods, fires or hurricanes. Climate-related disasters give us little or no time to think about our medications, because we are focused on protecting our family, the property and staying safe. The following tips should help with your emergency preparedness: Have a written list of all your medications that includes dosage, directions, your local pharmacy and physician and their phone numbers. Include both the generic and brand names. Pharmacies can actually print you a comprehensive list, but make sure its current. You want to be able to grab your medications and dietary supplements, and go! I suggest you buy a toiletry or make-up bag today, and store a 10-day supply of medications in it. Make sure your name is in it. Only take important medicine, like those used for epilepsy, blood pressure, pain, heartbeat rhythm, asthma, migraines, diabetes, and so forth. Keep the drugs in their original pharmacy container. Rescuers and relief team members may dispense your medications to you, so it must be correctly labelled. Include a water bottle so you can take your medicine when needed, a flashlight and a spare set of eyeglasses. Alittle first aid kit would be wise to have. If you take refrigerated medications like insulin, then you have two options. Option one is to buy a little ice pack and keep it frozen, preferably in a sealed baggie. That way, when the power goes out, grab the ice pack from your freezer, drop it in that toiletry or tote bag, and go. Option two is to purchase a ready-made cooling case, usually sold in the diabetes section of your pharmacy, and online. This stores insulin, and some might fit antibiotic suspensions, suppositories, growth hormone or epoetin (Procrit, Epogen). Two popular cooling cases are made by Frio and Medicool. These are great for regular travel, too. If you live in a region where fires are common, keep a 10-day supply of medications in a fire safe box. Its not a bad idea for anyone to do this. I did a quick search on the Internet and found two companies, Sentry and First Alert, that sell boxes which are both fire safe and waterproof. Another consideration is to purchase a little plastic waterproof container. Look in the boating section of your sporting good store. If you are prone to floods, or live in a hurricane zone, water purification tablets arent a bad idea. They use chlorine dioxide to destroy microorganisms within 15 minutes, killing Giardia, Cryptosporidium and other pathogens. Hikers and campers often carry these. One popular brand is Katadyn Micropur tablets. These tablets are usually available at places like REI sporting good stores and online.

So whats the newest item making headlines? Until July, Lazy Larry was known as Lazy Cakes, but the company that makes them has changed the name after some lawmakers and public officials expressed concerns about the contents of this brownie. Lazy Larry is an individually wrapped brownie that is marketed to make consumers sleepy and serve as a great stress reliever. Most wonder why these cakes are being ridiculed, not understanding how a simple brownie could be taken off shelves. The treats are made with melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle. The FDAdoes not consider melatonin to be a safe food additive and that the brownies are adulterated because they contain it. The agency has said that it can seize the brownies if the manufacturer continues to make and market them. Under federal law, supplement manufacturers are responsible for making sure their own products are safe. When told of the product and that it was completely harmless, Michael Roosevelt of the FDAsaid that the agency is not aware of data that confirms the safety of melatonin for use as an ingredient in foods. Medical research highlights potential side effects from using melatonin including reproductive, cardiovascular, ocular and neurological issues. So far, the manufacturers have marketed the brownies as a dietary supplement that is similar to the pill form of melatonin. Moreover, the packaging on the product says it should be consumed by adults only and should not be consumed before driving or operating heavy machinery. So if this is the case, then why does the wrapper of this sweet treat feature colorful artwork that evokes images of illegal substances and a logo of a smiling and relaxed brownie that visibly resembles SpongeBob SquarePants? This is yet another quest for manufacturers to lure in children and young adults, which weve seen from tobacco companies, bath salts and K2 vendors. Companies dress up these products targeting our younger generations by adding candy flavors and using colorful packaging to increase sales, and oftentimes, addiction to the products. What is even more alarming is that each brownie which isnt really a brownie, according to the label contains about 24 times the recommended dose of melatonin. According to Susan Smolinske, MD, the director of Childrens Hospital of Michigan Poison Control Center, the recommended daily dosage for melatonin ranges from .2 to 24 milligrams a day. Most pills contain 3 milligrams of the hormone. It seems as though every time you turn around there is a new product that comes out to give consumers that imitation high by marketing it as a food or drink item. Most of these products are dangerous and our community needs to be aware of Lazy Larrys especially parents who may not see the small print on the package warning its for adults only. Drug Free Highlands and other prevention specialists work hard to inform Highlands County on the trends and dangers of these products.

Snapshots Special to the News-SunGAINESVILLE Mosquitoes arent j ust a nuisance, theyre also an economic and health concern, say University of Florida researchers. July, August, and September are peak months for mosquito activity in Florida, and the state spends about $151 million each year trying to control the biting insects. Controlling mosquitoes is important for economic development and tourism, said Jonathan Day, a University of Florida medical entomology professor at UFs Florida Medical Entomology Lab in Vero Beach. Looking at Floridas history, there are large tracts of land that simply would not have been developed had it not been for mosquito control, Day said. And if there are mosquito-borne disease outbreaks one year, there can be severe financial impact on the states tourism industry the next, Day said. We actually saw that in 1991, he said. The year following the St. Louis encephalitis epidemic in 1990, we saw a real downswing in tourism. The medical entomology lab, part of UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, is tracking mosquito-borne diseases in the state including eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus, St. Louis encephalitis, and dengue virus. The spring drought reduced mosquito-borne diseases so far this year, Day said, but residents and visitors should still be cautious. He noted that mosquito numbers are high this year because many mosquitoes have drought-resistant eggs that stayed dormant until the summer rainy season triggered them to hatch. Mosquito landing rates, which are the number of mosquitoes that land on a person in a given time, have ranged from 10 to 50 per minute this summer at the Vero Beach lab. And although mosquito-borne diseases often cause mild symptoms such as fever and muscle pain, they can be fatal for some. Roxanne Connelly, a medical entomologist at the Vero Beach lab, said people die from mosquito-borne diseases every year. It seems that Eastern equine encephalitis is the deadliest, Connelly said. That is one that kind of affects all age ranges of people. Whether youre young or old, if you get it, it seems to be one that is very difficult to recover from. Eastern equine encephalitis has been detected in three Florida horses this year two in Holmes County and one in Marion County, and there are currently no human cases. Mosquitoes become infected with the disease by feeding on infected birds and then transmit the disease to humans and horses. Eleven human cases of West Nile virus have been confirmed this year in Duval County, with one suspected death. Mosquito threat emerges as season peaks, U of F researchers report Metro Services

NEWS-SUN-6155 Three weeks ago three of us were walking through the Cardo, which is the main walkway in the old part of Jerusalem towards the Damascus Gate. And then it happened. Hi, my name is Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum from The Way Church, and I would like a word with you. What happened, you ask? Well, the month of August was Ramadan for the Moslems, and some 62,000 Palestinians come to Jerusalem to worship and pray on the temple mount where the Dome of the Rock stands. It was 1:45 p.m. At 2 p.m. all Moslems were dismissed and made their way back to their homes through, you guessed it, the narrow Cardo towards the Damascus Gate. They were pushing and shoving from all sides, yelling faster, faster. But one man saw us, mistook us for Jews and yelled, You Jews will not be permitted to walk here very soon. What did he mean? On Sept. 20 the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, will fly to New York to present the United Nations with the request for statehood. The borders, according to the Palestinian Authority, should be the pre-1967 war borders where the Old City of Jerusalem including the Western or Wailing Wall would be given back to the Palestinians. The United Nations Security Council is composed of five permanent member states and 10 nonpermanent member states. The United States is one of the five permanent members and has already promised to veto the request of the Palestinians. However, the UN General Assembly can also vote on the resolution but needs two-thirds majority to pass. The Palestinians and Israelis have a no-win situation. If the Palestinians get their wish and the statehood is granted, they will have to deal with the Israelis, who will never give up parts of the old Jerusalem city. They will also never give up some of the large housing projects on the east side of Jerusalem, as well as some of the larger settlements within the West Bank, also known as Galilee and Samaria. The result will be more bloodshed. If the Palestinians do not get their request granted, they will be very upset, and the likelihood of bloodshed will also follow. Either way, a bad outcome. About 3,600 years ago the Prophet Daniel penned down what is known as The 70 Weeks of Daniel. Chapter 9, Verse 27 states: He (Antichrist) will confirm a covenant with many for one seven(seven years). Will the Jews be tricked into signing a seven-year peace treaty with its neighbors for the guarantee of safety and peace? How close are we to those last seven years? Yes, the stage is set for the second coming of Jesus. Reinhold Buxbaum is pastor of The Way Church. He teaches An Evening in Prophecy at Homers Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 5. No purchase is necessary. How close are we to the last seven years? RELIGION Guest Column Reinhold Buxbaum Bible Fellowship offers Adult Literacy ClassSEBRING Bible Fellowship Church is partnering with South Florida Community College to host adult literacy classes for those in the community that are being held back in life by the issue of having difficulty with reading.

Snapshots By MICHAELGRACZYK Associated PressROSHARON, Texas Thirty-nine men in identical white uniforms bowed their heads, sang, laughed, clapped, cheered and prayed as they were formally installed Monday as the states first class of seminarians studying to become ministers under a new program operating totally behind prison walls. Most of us in here havent done anything good in our lives, Bible student Javier Sanchez, 33, of Houston, said. Its life changing. Its like theres still hope. Like his fellow seminarians assembled for a convocation at the chapel of the Darrington Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Sanchez wears the white suit of a Texas prison inmate. He has at least 10 years left on a lengthy prison term before he becomes eligible for parole, hasnt been involved in serious trouble since his imprisonment, has a high school diploma or equivalent and has shown an aptitude that he can succeed in completing the four-year program that leads to a bachelors degree in Biblical studies. Sanchez has been locked up since 2003 with a 45year sentence for aggravated robbery. Armed with his degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, hell be assigned to a Texas prison to minister to the spiritual needs of fellow inmates. I think its amazing to watch God work here in prison, Sanchez said. The nondenominational program is modeled after a similar project in Louisiana thats credited with reducing inmate violence by 70 percent since beginning in 1995. The Texas project, an extension of the Fort Worthbased seminary, uses no state money and is financed with private donations. The hand of God has been in this project, said Sen. Dan Patrick, a Houston Republican who pushed the program with Houston Democratic Sen. John Whitmire after they both visited the Louisiana prison at Angola. Id never seen so many people serving life sentences with smiles on their face, Whitmire said. We were committed to taking this back to Texas. Brad Livingston, executive director of the criminal justice department, said its hoped the programs success will spawn a second class next year and then continue annually. There will be some challenges, but I believe weve put the pieces in place for success here, he told the inmates, survivors from among 600 who expressed interest in joining the program. Each of them received a new leatherbound Bible personalized with his name inscribed on the book. This is a tremendous opportunity. I believe this partnership is built to last. Livingston said it was selected because of its proximity to the Baptist seminarys resources in Houston, about an hours drive to the north. This is like draft day in the NFLand yall are firstround draft picks, Patrick told the prisoners, who cheered. But theres more on the line than a Super Bowl. Its not about your past, its about your future. Texas inmates enroll in prison-based seminary I think its amazing to watch God work here in prison.JAVIERSANCHEZ inmate Associated PressMURFREESBORO, Tenn. ARutherford County judge reaffirmed his ruling in May that allowed for the construction of a new mosque in Murfreesboro following a challenge by opponents who wanted to halt construction. Chancellor Robert Corlew sent a response Monday to plaintiffs who had asked him to reconsider his earlier ruling that the members of the mosque had a legal right to build a bigger place of worship, the Daily News Journal reported. Those who are adherents to Islam are entitled to pursue their worship in the United States just as are those who are adherents to more universally established faiths (in our community), Corlew wrote. We are all very familiar with the legal principle that in the United States, all citizens enjoy the right to freedom of religion. Judge affirms ruling allowing mosque construction

With a cast that includes Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson and a tremendous Jessica Chastain, led by Shakespeare in Love director John Madden, it seems it would be hard to go wrong. Matthew Vaughn, the director of Layer Cake and KickAss, co-wrote the script. Its smart and tense but also frustrating; it almost feels too safe, too conservative and reserved in the way it hits its notes. Still, everything about it is so respectable, you may feel engrossed in the moment, yet forget about it soon afterward. Aremake of a 2007 Israeli film of the same name, The Debt begins in 1997 with three former Mossad agents being heralded at the launch of a new book that details their most important mission from 30 years earlier. They are Rachel (Mirren), her exhusband, Stephan (Wilkinson), and their former colleague and friend, David (Ciaran Hinds). The former husband and wife are parents of the author, and the glances they exchange signal that theyre not too comfortable with being celebrated as heroes all these years later. The startling fate that befalls David also provides an early moment of foreboding. Flashback to 1965. The exceedingly capable Rachel (Chastain) and the strong, stoic David (Sam Worthington) are pretending to be a young married couple trying to have a baby in order to get close to an East Berlin doctor named Dieter Vogel (a chilling Jesper Christensen), a Nazi war criminal known notoriously during World War II as the Surgeon of Birkenau. Under the leadership of the swaggering Stephan (Martin Csokas), the team is to kidnap Vogel and bring him back to Israel to stand trial. Despite their training and focus, this does not exactly go as planned, and the ways in which the agents fail are more interesting than the build-up of watching them function in high gear. Madden proves himself surprisingly adept at crafting this kind of brainy, brawny action thriller with a mixture of well-placed silences and visceral camerawork. As it jumps back and forth in time, The Debt explores the conflict between expectations and reality, intellect and emotions, truth and regret. The films gray areas are so intriguing that youll wish it didnt rely on a facile love triangle to create further tension and add yet another layer of history between these three characters. The needless romance further bogs down the third act, which grows unfortunately messy as it tries to tie up various loose ends and satisfy the audiences need for justice. Still, the performances are consistently strong, especially from Chastain in a far more grounded, muscular role than weve seen from her this year in The Tree of Life and The Help. Meanwhile, Mirren can do tough-but-vulnerable in her sleep; these two are the most plausible duo of the three. As exciting and confident as Csokas is, its hard to believe hell morph into Wilkinson eventually, and Worthingtonto-Hinds is the most baffling of all. Unless maybe were supposed to believe that all those years of secrets and lies have really taken a toll. Focus Features Jessica Chastain stars as Young Rachel Singer and Sam Worthington stars as Young David Peretz in The Debt. DIVERSIONS The Debt a classy, well-made thriller Movie Review The Debt Rating: R (some violence and language) Running time: 113 minutes Review: (of 4) DearAbby: I have a sister I love dearly. Thea is married to a wonderful man, and they have a 3-year-old son I love as if he were my own. My problem is Thea has a nasty, violent temper, and she doesnt hesitate to use it toward the boy. Recently when he was overtired and needed to go to bed, Thea said he knows better than to push me by throwing a tantrum. She then threatened to beat him bloody if he didnt shut up and go to sleep. Abby, she had already swatted his behind to the point that he could no longer stand up. This feels like abuse to me. When I suggested that perhaps Thea should try to calm down before she hits him (more than she already had), she threw me out of her house. I am terrified that this may be happening more often than I realize. But what if what I witnessed was just an isolated incident? If I act on it, I may never have a relationship with my sister again. What (if anything) can I do? Im worried for the safety of my nephew, but I dont want to cause a rift I cant mend. Midwest Auntie DearAuntie: It appears your sister has serious anger issues and lacks parenting skills.

Your call will be kept confidential and a counselor can guide you further. Please dont procrastinate. DearAbby: My fiance, Roger, died recently. I am working through the devastating grief of his passing, but the core of my pain was listening to the eulogies at his funeral. I expected Rogers friends and family to share happy memories and celebrate the best of his life. However, many of those who spoke including his granddaughter chose to remember him as a notorious womanizer both while his wife was alive and after her death. Stories were shared about how he constantly hit on much younger women, including his daughters childhood friends. One gentleman even shared an amusing anecdote about how he and Roger found out they were sleeping with the same woman. I knew about Rogers past before he met me and I managed to come to terms with it, but I did not expect it to be brought up as entertainment at his memorial. I also thought it to be inappropriate with his late wifes family in attendance. Now my memories are tainted, and I feel dirty and used. I live 500 miles from Roger's home and will probably never see those people again. What can I do to get over this anger that continues to haunt me? Still in Mourning DearStill Mourning: A eulogy is usually a respectful recapitulation of the deceaseds life story, which includes loving memories, lessons taught, examples set by the person. What happened at the funeral was an indication that Roger left behind bitter memories that were voiced by those who spoke. How sad for all concerned. However, this has nothing to do with you and your relationship with Roger. And the quickest way to work through your feelings would be to practice forgiveness and go on with your life in which Roger was just a chapter.

Volatile sister has to be stopped before she hurts son Dear Abby By MICHAELLIEDTKE APTechnology WriterSAN FRANCISCO The toughest choice most Netflix customers usually face is figuring out which movie to put at the top of their queues. But millions of Netflix subscribers will be wrestling with a new dilemma as they decide how to respond to price changes that will hit the video services existing customers beginning Thursday. The new system will impose substantially higher rates on customers who want to keep renting DVDs through the mail and enjoying the more immediate gratification of streaming video over high-speed Internet connections. Asmall number of Netflix Inc.s nearly 25 million U.S. subscribers will be unaffected because they had already limited their usage to Internet video streaming. Others will have to pay as much as 60 percent more unless they are prepared to wean themselves from one of Netflixs entertainment options or just close their service entirely. Heres a few factors for Netflix subscribers to consider: Find out which day of the month Netflix bills you. Click Your Account & Help on the top right, then look for the next billing date in the center. That is when the new rates take effect. For example, if Netflix doesnt charge you until the 22nd of each month, you still have another three weeks before being charged more to have both DVD rentals and Internet video. Know the new prices. For the first time since it introduced Internet streaming in 2007, Netflix is offering DVD-only plans. For $8 per month, customers can rent an unlimited number of DVDs per month, with a maximum of one disc out per time. DVD-only plans allowing two discs out at time will cost $12 per month and three DVDs at a time will go for $16 per month. The cheapest package that combines Internet video and DVD rentals (one disc at a time) will cost $16 per month up from $10 per month under the old system. The price for an Internet-streaming only plan remains $8 per month. If youre among the customers who want to keep just one of Netflixs entertainment options, assess what you like to watch on the service and how you watch it. Internet streaming is more convenient because theres no waiting for video to be delivered by the U.S. postal system. It also enables viewing on personal computers, tablet computers and phones, besides television sets. The negatives: It requires high-speed Internet access, which isnt cheap, and Netflixs streaming library is about one-fifth the size of the 100,000 selections in the DVD section. Netflix users facing dilemma Associated PressNEWYORK The Bravo network said Wednesday it is going ahead with the Labor Day season premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills despite the suicide of a cast members husband. Brief interviews with cast members about the suicide of Russell Armstrong will precede the premiere, although Armstrongs widow, Taylor one of the Real Housewives did not participate. The network will also air several suicide prevention public service announcements during the show, said Frances Berwick, Bravo Media president. Armstrong hanged himself on Aug. 15. He left no note. The couples marital strife was a story line in the reality shows first season. In the second season premiere, filmed months ago, Taylor Armstrong tells the other housewives that she and her husband are going to therapy. Berwick said the seasons new episodes are in the process of being edited. She didnt specify exactly what was being done, but it will likely be to give less attention to the marital problems. Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time, Berwick said in a statement. The Real Housewives franchise is one of the key factors in Bravos success as a cable network. Begun in 2006 with a short-run series focusing on the lives of a group of women in Orange County, Calif., the series branched out to separate editions with women in New York, New Jersey and Atlanta. Last year Bravo aired The Real Housewives of DC, which featured Michaele Salahi, who briefly became famous as an uninvited guest at a White House party. Bravo going ahead with premiere of Housewives

C M Y K BYERIKABOLSTADMcClatchy Newspaperso many artists, as the years passed, the lack of a 9/11 memorial at the World Trade Center site felt nearly as big an absence as the gaping maw left at Ground Zero. There was so much trauma, and there was just nothing there except this big old hole, said Kay Turner, a folklorist at the Brooklyn Arts Council. It was disturbing, and I think that artists also felt that. The council filled that void, organizing an annual arts memorial that every year has focused on a different medium: photography, film, songs, poetry. Like the wider artistic output since 9/11, the work was burdened with the question Bruce Springsteen asked in The Rising, his 2002 rock album that served as the soundtrack for how Americans grappled with the attacks: How do you live brokenhearted? Its a question thats been asked repeatedly in the arts and popular culture over the past decade, often without satisfactory answers. Television shows like reflected the daily fear that permeated ordinary life, even if they didnt outright mention 9/11. Even films that werent specifically about the terrorist attacks were suffused with a sense of loss, including Spike Lees th Hour, released 15 months after the terrorist attacks and widely considered the first and so far, best film with 9/11 in its soul. The film opens with a shot of the Manhattan skyline at night, bracketed by the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty. Two beams of bluewhite light from the annual Tribute in Light memorial shoot from lower Manhattan, underscoring whats missing. As the decade moved on, the collective artistic reaction to the shocking events of a single day became less about memorials and more about weaving the everyday reality of a post-9/11 world into the fabric of American arts and popular culture. Now we are turning a corner. With the capture of Osama bin Laden this spring, and the opening of a permanent memorial on the site of the former World Trade Center this year on the 10th anniversary of the attacks, it also may be that enough time has passed for artists, filmmaker, television writers and novelists to create work that makes better sense of what the past decade means. But 10 years away from the event, the work thats emerging has a new theme: reflection. In 2004, Peter Tolan and actor Denis Leary created Rescue Me, a television show about New York City firefighters struggling with life after 9/11. They had no idea that the show would become such an iconic representation that seven years later theyd be asked to donate props to the Smithsonians 9/11 collection. The thing that I wanted to portray more than anything was what brave men are like, especially ... after a catastrophe, Leary said. We looked at it through that sort of hallway, without thinking about the broader things. That would be too much. But we knew it was the shadow of 9/11. Their show, which Leary called a smudged version of reality, crossed several boundaries. It was the first about 9/11, specifically the people left behind. It also dared to be funny at a time when the wounds of 9/11 were still raw. If we thought it was going to be groundbreaking, boy, it would have sucked, Tolan said. Nothing kills entertainment like saying, Hey, this is important.Then youre going to do something preachy, and certainly without humor. Humor would have been unthinkable early in the decade after 9/11. Novelist Rebecca Johns was in graduate school at the University of Iowa at the time of the attacks and recalls discussions among fellow aspiring writers about whether they were witnessing the death of irony in literature. At the time it seemed impossible we would ever be able to talk about the attacks with anything less than complete earnestness, Johns said. Would anyone be able to write about the attacks as a human event rather than a terrorist one? Would we ever regain our national sense of humor? Of course it turns out we have, not so much about the attacks themselves but in our national reaction to them, and in our reaction to everything that came after, she said. Her choice of sudenisbject matter in her first novel, Icebergs, was directly influenced by the attacks, Johns said, as was the decision to write a multigenerational book that spans World War II and the Vietnam War. I doubt I would have chosen the pattern of repeating wars in Icebergsif it werent for the things that were on my mind in those days: destruction, survival, she said. It helped me, too, to remember that those other wars, and those other terribly uncertain days, also eventually came to an end. It was much the same for artist Andrea Arroyo, who in early 2002 struggled to find inspiration for a show that sought reaction pieces from artists. Arroyo, a Mexican artist who lives in the United States, drew something much more textual and graphic than her usual figurative style. Her silkscreen image of the Twin Towers was represented in rows of type forming the word UNREAL. Clouds of black, red and yellow at the top of the text evoke the points of impact and the fires. When the piece was featured in the New York Times, families of victims contacted her for copies. It also became part of the National Museum of American Historys Bearing Witness to History exhibit on the first anniversary of 9/11. Arroyo hasnt created anything directly inspired by the attacks since then, but she believes the exercise of creating her 9/11 piece may have indirectly influenced some of her subsequent work. That includes a series of portraits of women whove been killed in the drug violence of Mexicos Ciudad Juarez. My work is always celebratory but I went deeper into the feminism, the gender, the social justice and the gender justice, she said. It definitely influenced my work and my point of view. Shes currently curating a 9/11themed show for New Yorks Grady Alexis Gallery. Arroyo expects their work, too, has moved on from the raw reactions first seen after the attacks. I know that many artists are going to be, even if not thinking about it, its going to be in the general consciousness of New York, she said.
