C M Y K News-Sun staffIn the 10 years that have passed since the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, emotions are still as raw as on the day it happened. First responders in Highlands County, who were already serving the community at the time, remember the horror vividly. Those who were teenagers in 2001 have equally powerful memories. Many of them joined the military or became police officers or fire fighters because of what they saw and felt on that day. Here are some of their stories:Tom Dettman, Sebring police chief Asked to remember the day of the attack, Sebring Police Chief Tom Dettman walked into the departments conference room carrying his daily minder book from 2001. Sitting at the head of the table he turned to the page for Sept. 11, then handed the book to a visitor. In heavy black ink and large letters Dettman had written, Terrorist attack on America. An arrow pointed to a smaller entry, staff meeting at 2 p.m. It was circled in black with the notation reschedule. Dettman said he a stomach flu that day and was taking his time about getting to work. Which is why he was standing in his living room holding a cup of coffee in his hand when the morning news was interrupted to announce a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. My God, Dettman said to himself, its got to be the worst accident in history. Then the second plane flew into the second tower. Dettman said he had attended the FBIs national academy years before and made a lot of friends from all over the country, but especially from the New York City police department.

The approved resolution gave Avon Park $76,150 to construc t the first right turn lane from Wes t Bell Street onto U.S. 27. The second allotment o f $80,850 is enough for the city to construct a right turn lane from Pleasant Street onto U.S. 27. City Manager Julian Deleon thanked the commission for its approval of the project during the meeting, stating that the work was part of the overall Highlands County Transportation Plan. These are much needed projects and will elevate some of the wait at these two intersections. The improvements are part of the plan to lessen the traffic overflow from both intersections. This will also increase the safety of these two busy intersections, Deleon said. According to the agenda summary presented to the commission, the Avon Park City Council passed a motion March 28 establishing transportation priorities fo r the city, and Deleon expressed his desire to county staff to utilize the impact fees right away. Avon Park proposed adding intersection improvements at Hal McRae Boulevard, Bell Street, Winthrop Street and Pleasan t Street.

The book was compiled in 1996 by News-Sun correspondents Larry and Elaine Levey, who later were given all publication rights. Now that most of the original copies have been sold, Larry said, we think a second printing is in order. Yesterday is a 128page photo-history of the county: its people, places and events that promise, as the introduction states, a fascinating patchwork quilt of the family of communitiesof Highlands County. The book opens with a brief history of the local communities, with the remainder divided into such themes as agriculture, health care, business, education, religion, transportation, sports and recreation. Other sections are devoted to the countys role during World War II, Highlands Hammock State Park and the Civilian Conservation Corps, and the 12 Hours of Sebring. The book contains 265 historic black-and-white photos, with most coming from the countys three historical societies. Also featured are songs and poetry devoted to Highlands County people and places. In 1997, Yesterday took second place in the Florida Press Association awards in the local history category. While the first printing was in a hard-cover format, this second printing is softcovered with a spiral binding. The book sells for $25, including tax, and is available at the News-Sun, Hotel Jacaranda and the Lake Placid Mural Society desk located in the Greater Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce, or by filling out the accompanying form. Postage and handling are extra. Call the Leveys at 385-8618 for other options or information. For each book sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the News-Sun to support Newspaper in Education, an international program using newspapers in schools to improve reading, spelling and writing skills.

Details had not been released by the Florida Highway Patrol. Witnesses said the car caught fire with the woman trapped inside. Law officers on the scene told the News-Sun Highlands County sheriffs deputies happened to be in the area and were able to respond almost immediately. They used six fire extinguishers to control the flames and reach the woman, pulling her from the car. She was transported from the scene for medical care. They did a hell of a job, thank God said one witness of the rescue. It could have terrible. Desoto City and Lorida volunteer fire departments arrived to kill the fire completely. Progress Energy was called to cut power to the line, because a live wire hung low over the road, and its wooden support pole the bottom sheared off in the accident hung from the wire. Traffic was intermittently stopped while first responders worked the crash site. Woman airlifted after hitting tree on U.S. 98 News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY According to witnesses, Highlands County deputy sheriffs saved the driver, and only occupant, of this car after she was trapped inside and it caught fire.

C M Y K By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Members of the Sebring Centennial Celebration met Thursday at Homers Restaurant to let the public know about how to participate in events and fundraising for the 100th birthday of the city, which happens in 2012. We are planning a week of structured events, but we are really looking for a year-long celebration, said County Commissioner Greg Harris, who is acting vice president of the Sebring Centennial Committee. We are looking for the community to take the lead, Harris added. Harris informed the public in attendance of the 2012 calendar, which the Sebring Chamber of Commerce will put together, and encouraged individual groups to submit events that could be published in the calendar. This is for events that deal specifically with the 100 year celebration, so please submit events that are in conjunction with that, Harris said. Committee President Allen C. Altvater, III also wanted the public to now that the event was community-wide, not just restricted to a small group. We are looking for folks to take the lead. The plan is to take the whole community to make this a success. We didnt want this to be a success or failure on just one group, we wanted to broaden the participation to every group who wishes to organize a luncheon, dance or fish fry during the year as part of the celebration, Altvater said. We dont just want to organize a concert, we want to see multiple concerts throughout the year. We are seeking participation from the schools. We want to not only seek participation from others in the community, we want to set the tone for the next 100 years in Sebring, Altvater said. We would like this to run from Christmas parade to Christmas parade starting this December, said Altvater. Sebring Mayor George Hensley also told the audience that the event was community driven, not organizational. The city loaned the committee $5,000 to get the event off the ground, but this is not just about the city government. It is about having fun as a community and about celebrating this unique event. Have a lot of fun, thats what this is all about, Hensley said. You dont want to miss this centennial because we wont be around for the next one. All three speakers talked abut possible events already suggested, like a street dance on the Sebring Circle, golf tournaments at the Sebring Municipal Golf Course and the largest fireworks display ever put on during the Fourth of July.

It was a tragedy of innocent lives wasted, of brave passengers dying as they crashed their plane trying to save themselves and those on the ground. According to Info Please, in New York City 2,749 people died; 184 at the Pentagon; 40 on United Airlines flight number 93; and the 19 hijackers. When the towers fell the south tower 56 minutes after impact, the north tower 102 the collapse took only 12 seconds. Part of our response is linked to how quickly it all happened, how unexpected it was, and the fact that most of us watched in real time and living color. Perhaps even more damaging than the harrowing images and loss of life, however, is what happened in the aftermath, how we reacted, and how we react still. It seems as if we no longer trust American institutions to keep us from harm. Since the attack we have changed the way we look at ourselves, at strangers and the world around us. Other terrible moments in our history created eras of paranoia as well. The internment of Japanese-Americans in concentration camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor is just one. The terrorist strike on 9/11 led us directly into two wars, both of which continue. It led to curtailed civil liberties, enhanced surveillance of ordinary citizens, officially sanctioned torture, and a persistent prejudice against Moslems. None of this was done to us by our enemies. We did it to ourselves. Worse, too many of us seem content to let our freedoms erode, to not mind the placement of cameras filming us going about our everyday lives, for example, or the clandestine taping of telephones. We dont seem to have grasped the irony of us keeping so many individuals incarcerated without charges in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba while we sanction Cuba for doing the same thing. We have lost so much faith in our judicial system, and become so fearful, we seem to honestly think trials of accused terrorists in the United States will put us at risk and that prisons will fail to keep the guilty behind bars. This loss of faith in ourselves, our system of government, and the Bill of Rights is a far greater danger than murderous extremists with hate in their hearts and no impulse control. The News-Sun has said repeatedly over the years that Americans are a strong, compassionate people; fairminded and self-confident enough to encourage diversity of thought and speech; honest and brave enough to learn from our mistakes. But, when nihilist haters of life blew apart the World Trade Center, they blew us apart too. We havent truly worked together since. With a decade passed, our hope is that we overcome the devastation of that terrible day and rise above it. May we regain our reason and live forthrightly by our principles. It is the best way to honor the dead.

Ten years. Adecade. John and James were 14 and 12, respectively. Perky was a lot more active than he is these days. I wasnt pursuing a fiction writing career yet. And in the space of a few hours, while none of that had changed, so much else did. Ten years ago today I was getting ready for Ladies Bible Class and listening to Barry Foster on the radio when someone mentioned that a plane had crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. At the time I thought it had been a tragic accident. Then during the top of the hour news update, someone reported a second plane had hit the towers. Then I knew. This was not an accident. I missed a lot of the initial television coverage because I wasnt home to watch it. But phone calls to the church building kept those of us in class up to date on the developments. As a nation, we were shocked. Terrorism like this happened to other people, in other countries. Not here. Not to us. We grieved. We crowded our church buildings seeking answers. We lined up to donate blood. For a brief, shining moment, we forgot about our differences and banded together to comfort one another. And together we made a promise. This atrocity would not stand. We got angry.We hit back. It took almost 10 years, but we finally got Osama Bin Laden. Before that we put a sizable dent into the network that plotted the attacks. Along the way we worked to make Afghanistan a better place than when we found it.Were still working on it. Airport security increased.Now we gripe or joke about it, but it was no joke in those nervous days following the attacks. I still remember the armed soldiers standing in the security areas in those early days.Security has gotten even greater over the years, and there is no sign of anyone letting up on it in the near future. We were told to try to go on with our lives. We tried to. Don and I even flew to Vermont the following month, something that friends of ours thought was either brave or crazy. Ten years later 9/11 still casts a shadow over our country. The wound is still tender. Today we will mourn the dead and remember that terrible day. In spite of all the time that has gone by, we havent forgotten. Or have we? I think in spite of everything, there is something that we have lost since 9/11. Weve forgotten the importance of unity. As a country, were more divided than ever. Gone is the feeling of being united against a common foe. Now the foe is the person of a different political affiliation. W hile I understand standing on principles, do we really need to employ the nasty rhetoric that has become standard in our political discourse? And before you point fingers at one party or the other, lets be honest and admit that both sides share the blame in this adversarial relationship.We are going to war with each other and forgetting that there are those outside this country who are truly our enemies, who want us dead simply because of who we are. What will it take for us to unite? Together we are far stronger than when we are apart. Ten years ago it took a terrorist act to remind us of this fact. My prayer is that it will not take a second terrorist act to bring us together again. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Ten years after 9/11 Lauras Look Laura Ware Preservation report sounds nice, but ...Editor: The news report about preserving the rural habitat in several counties and the Everglades was quite positive until I read the part about hunters and airboats. The fact that the agencies were going to protect the landscape and endangered species was good, but to have more hunters and airboats somewhat negates said protection. The news that hunting periods would be expanded and more hunters having access to Everglade-related areas brings to mind not only endangered species being accidentally killed, but people also. I recall the flights I took out of Miami to cities up north back in the 1970s, when I saw airboat tracks crisscrossing the Everglades and on land hearing them roar as they raced helter-skelter in every direction. Little thought was given to bird nests or other animal havens, not to mention the plant life left asunder. The idea of professional hunters is a sound one. They know what they are doing and know what to look for; however, amateur hunters apparently dont. They cant seem to distinguish a deer from a bear nor a deer from people. Feral hogs are a serious menace, but amateur hunters seem to hit everything but the hogs, so the training requirements and permits/licenses are essential. Hiring game wardens will pay for themselves the first year or two. Limited corridors for airboats is essential. What about private land? The impression from the article indicated there will be no supervision of private land. The pollution from agriculture, cattle and sugar industries caused the crisis in the first place. Will continued pollution be allowed to kill off more endangered species and plant life? What about developers in those rural areas? Gabriel Read Avon ParkPotbellied pigs are to be lovedEditor: Please take a moment to review the potbellied pig information. Our family has two potbellied pigs and they have completed training just like a dog. Precious piglet has a certificate from our local Petco. I know ... believe it or not. We dont know this family requesting the zoning but wanted to help a family keep their ordinary household pet. I might also add that not all cases are alike but almost all the cases are based on the livestock laws or swine laws that were put on the books long before the potbellied pig was ever in this country. Pre 1985. The laws that they use to kick the pet pig out of their loving home are always laws that if given the real definition, pertain to breeder, and feeder pigs, which we can prove, without a shadow of a doubt, do not pertain to our pet potbellied pigs, and never have. In most municipalities there is absolutely no law at all either for or against the pet potbellied pig, and any law that is drafted, and passed after the potbelly is sited cannot pertain either so any potbellied pig living in that city must be grandfathered, and should be safe and sound at home on their couch watching TV. Dogs, cats or other ordinary household pets, provided they are not kept, bred or maintained for any commercial purpose except in a commercially zoned district and provided further that they do not become a nuisance pet. and to define livestock refers to one or more domesticated animals raised in an agricultural setting to produce commodities such as food, fiber and labor. Pigs are intelligent and have been placed fourth on the intelligence list (humans, primates, dolphins/whales, pigs). Pigs are generally clean, odorless animals. Pigs that have been neutered or spayed are generally sweet natured and sensitive animals. In fact, pigs are so sensitive that you can hurt their feelings... Pigs are popular because they can be housebroken. Pigs can openly express their fondness for certain humans. In October 1998, the Pittsburg Post-Gazette reported that Lulu, a pet potbellied pig, saved the life of her owner. Lulus owner collapsed from a heart attack. Knowing something was not right, Lulu went outside, past the yard, where she had never gone. Witnesses saw Lulu wait until a car approached, then walked onto the road and lay in front of the car. The driver stopped the car and got out. Lulu then led the man to the house where her owner lay. The man called for help and emergency crews arrived there shortly. Wow, do you think your doggie would do that one? Maybe you should consider adding a potbellied piggy to your home too. See ya tonight and I might just bring one of my potbellied pigs. Terri Lynn Crutchfield SebringShare of cost is tough to swallowEditor: I am writing regarding the article about Samaritans Touch that is part of a larger item about uninsured people in Highlands County in the Your Health special in Saturdays (Sept. 3) paper. Everything they said is true. They are fantastic and for several years my husband was a patient there. November 2010 my husband had an accident at home that ended up him needing outpatient surgery to fix it. Because of the other people and businesses that he was referred to that did not charge us, we saved several thousands dollars I am guessing. We saved more than we ended up owing. For that I am most grateful. We can never thank them enough for all the wonderful care and medication he got. The Christian atmosphere there is so great, on top of the medical care. I miss him not being able to go there anymore and pray he does not have anymore expensive accidents or get super sick, at least until he can get on Medicare in two years. Hopefully it will still be there for him as it has been for me thus far. The reason for the letter is to let people know that when they are up for renewal of services at the end of the year, there is a new requirement that can make renewal impossible. As of this year, you have to apply for Medicaid. We knew that we had too much income to qualify for it, but they did say we were both OK for share of cost. That is a joke, people. Our share of cost amount is $1,744 a month before Medicaid will pay anything. That is more than two-thirds of our monthly income. I do not know whose idea this was, but I do know he is not the only person who is still uninsured but who can no longer get care there. Im guessing it is a way to get the higher income people out o f their system to make way for the super low income people. If anyone has even $1 share of cost, they consider you insured. The only way it would help him is if he were hospitalized. Thank God I have Medicare and get most of my care at the VA. If my facts about share of cost are incorrect, I apologize and want someone who truly knows any different, please write the paper and let the public in on the truth I don t know about. Again, Samaritans Touch, thank you so much for all you have done for him and we appreciate it very much. Ida Search Avon Par k

Please note that due to limited right of way along Hal McRae Boulevard and Winthrop Street, which would prevent the installation of a right turn lane without the acquisition of additional right of way or other creative engineering methods, these intersections were removed from the priority list by the city, wrote County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete. The city also proposed a deceleration turn lane into the citys airport coming off State Road 64. Consequently, the proposed improvements to S.R. 64 also exceeded the amount available for transportation improvements in the Avon Park area and this project was removed from the citys priority list, Gavarrete explained. The utilization of these funds will ensure that future capacity is retained to properly support growth within the unincorporated area and the city, Gavarrete said. As of August the Impact Fee Transportation Avon Park Fund had approximately $238,728 set aside for transportation improvements, and the current construction still leaves $81,728 in the available funds for the city. But since impact fees are suspended until July 2012 by the commission, that account is not expected to grow.

Avideo tribute may be viewed at www.scottfuneralservices.com where you may also leave words of comfort. The following is a tribute by the late Bill Powers, friend and neighbor of the Andersons: LADYON THE LAKE We know a girl named Mildred, she lives on Red Water Lake, she loves her animals and birds, on that make no mistake. She knows her trees and bushes, the flowers and the seeds, and knows just what to feed them, to keep away the weeds. She is such a good neighbor, and will watch your house and home, pick up your papers and your mail, and assure your dog a bone. She loves the animals, birds and plants, in her daily chores of labor, but in her thoughts and cares for people, extend out to her neighbors. Now her husbands name is Bill Anderson, an Wheeler by trade, who drove this country far and wide, not a road he didnt test, from their home in Homestead, Florida, to all points East and West. He also traveled North and South, across the MasonDixon Line, through the Glades and mountain tops, his wheels did whine. When Bill was on the truckers road, Mildred ran the groves they owned, for Bills Dad had pioneered the land, a General Store he owned. From the Andersons homestead, Andersons Corner it is know, for its the heart of Homestead, Florida, where the Air Force has its home. Now Bill and Mildred are our neighbors, they have retired and live here on the lake, we consider ourselves so lucky, on that make no mistake, for we consider our neighbors, as some thing special-some thing great.

Some of the writing in the guestbook is elegant script, some a labored scrawl. The notes are from Maine, Michigan, South Carolina, Idaho, Florida and many states in between. All of them were written in the last 24 hours. In this quiet, remote part of western Pennsylvania, people from all over the country came pay their respects to the passengers and crew of United Flight 93, which crashed into a desolate field nearly 10 years ago. Family members of those who died on Flight 93 shed tears Friday, but they also celebrated the spirit of the crash sites guestbook a rare feeling that people from vastly different walks of life had come together. I dont focus on what happened. You cant change that, said Lorne Lyles, whose wife, CeeCee Ross Lyles, had been working as a United Airlines flight attendant for only nine months on that September morning in 2001. Coming here is more of a celebratory thing. Shes been memorialized, Lyles said. Just to see the outpouring from all over the world is touching. You really do have some caring people in the world. Thats not how things usually go at his job as a police officer near Tampa, Fla. I dont see too many caring people, Lyles said. But this memorial is truly dear to my heart. Thats what Im more focused on. He paused, and looked around the small room that has served as a temporary gathering place for visitors. The room has some of the tributes that have been left behind in honor of the passengers and crew who forced the four terrorists to crash the plane before it could hit a target in Washington, likely the Capitol or the White House. Theres a birdhouse with a hand-painted condolence. A note written in Japanese. A patch from the C-5 Nightriders Special Operations group. An inscribed softball. Anote from the Chicago Bomb Squad said that the passengers and crew, by confronting the terrorists, had lived up to the squads motto: Here I am. Send me. To see the other side of humanity thats just truly a blessing, Lyles said in a calm voice. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar spoke at the site Friday, a day ahead of the planned dedication of the first phase of the Flight 93 National Memorial. He noted that for all the progress on the memorial, theres still work to be done. Public and private donors have contributed $52 million, but $10 million more is needed to build a true visitors center and to finish landscaping, Salazar said. We will not be able to complete the site without additional funding, he said. Gordon Felt, president of the Families of Flight 93 group, noted that many people had come together to create the memorial. The planned attendance this weekend of former presidents Bill Clinton an d George W. Bush, he said, underscored the importance of the Flight 93 Memorial for us, and for all Americans.

www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 11, 2011Page 7A LAMPE & KEIFFER; 11.25"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 9/11/11; 00011824 SENIORSCENE In the days of early Florida, rangeland stretched for miles across the state. Long cattle trails were rutted by thousands of cows herded to market on the east coast out of Fort Pierce and the West Coast from Punta Rassa by trail and paddle boat. The cattle were hunted and gathered and out of swamps and woods to join the cattle trail ride as cow hunters drove the cattle to market sleeping in lean-tos along the way surviving storms, draught, wild panthers, rattlesnakes and the unexpected. The men that carved these trails were called cow hunters as they had to rope and round up the cattle for the drive. The Florida Cracker Trail Ride once a year is the heritage of these days that gave birth to the Florida Cattle Industry. The rugged life of these early cow hunters is a disappearing culture. Their lifestyle will never return as Floridas landscape changes with development and less rural countryside available for the small family rancher. However, their stories still live and inspire, as the life of Dillon Thomas who recalls those days in his own words. There is another story I remember about the owner of the Stuart ranch. Thomas says, One day when I was leaving for home, I remembered that I left my spurs at the barn. I started to go back to get them when I ran into Barney Savage, ranch owner. We talked and he said he had a bottle of moonshine with him he wanted me to try. So I did. After just a few sips of that moonshine, I forgot all about the spurs I left at the barn and I didnt go back to get them. After Stuart, says Dillon, we were on the move again, back to Fort Myers where I got a job laying blocks. I got real good at it and even worked on building the first Sears store in Fort Myers. Then in 1954, a job opportunity turned up in Fort Lauderdale so we moved to nearby Miami. It was from this job that I got my start in the masonry and contract business. It was a real good business so I got my contractors license. I remember in 1950, when Lehigh Acres and Cape Coral were cattle ranches. I was a range rider for the state. Ill always miss now riding a horse. I have seen many changes in my lifetime, many ups and downs with economic turns every four or five years as far back as I can remember. When I was a boy, cattle ranching was the biggest industry in Florida, now Florida is being taken over by pythons and theres no light at the end of the tunnel for the cattle business. Cattlemen are moving out of Florida, Dillon laments. Iris Thomas passed away at 52 years old. I did marry again but also lost her, as I did Iris, from a heart attack. I have three girls, Peggy the oldest who lives in Fort Myers, Mavis living in Tennessee and Sherry who lives at LaBelle, says Dillon. How does pioneer cattleman Dillon Thomas describe his legacy? Read the 12th chapter of Galatians, he says, which talks about the nine gifts of the Spirit. The first gift is wisdom and knowledge. I have always looked to the Lord for wisdom and knowledge; this is my legacy. Excerpts from Nancy Dales new book, The Legacy of the Florida Pioneer Cow Hunters In Their Own Words. The book is now available at www.nancydalephd.com, or by calling 214-8351. I ended the August article with a promise that exercise would be on the list of coping skills against depression. But back up. Before you can exercise, have you had a check up lately? I dont mean Sure, Ive had a flu shot variety. I mean a complete physical check up. The kind that includes a stress test, a chest xray, etc., etc., etc. Google it to see what is included in a complete physical check up. Well, back up again. Do you have a family physician? One who keeps all your records and who follows you through the years as you change. He knows all your medications. Your cardiologist has your heart records. The gastroenterologist knows your bowel habits. The urologist and so on down the line. (Yes cardiologist, urologist, gastroenterologist, rheumatologist, etc., etc. How do you think I made it to 90?) But each is concerned with you within the limits of his own specialty. Your family physician compiles all these records. You may forget when you had your appendix out but it in his files. You can call his office and even the receptionist can look at your folder and tell you when it was. Furthermore when you have a family physician you can call him in the middle of the night (Please dont tell Dr. Ike Lee I said that.) Try getting a specialist that way. When you have this framework in place you can address the other details for coping with depression like nutrition. Do you practice eating a wellbalanced diet? The pyramid may have changed but the essentials are still there. Sometimes all it takes may be incorporated in one hot, balanced meal a day. Being aware of and following a good nutritional plan is essential. How many hours do you sleep? I get along on four hours a night. Yeah? For how long? Six to eight hours is a must. How many of you have been introduced to that delightful afternoon nap. He who naps refreshes himself. Oh and you dont have to narrow it to only an afternoon nap. Anytime you can get a few minutes of rest refreshes your whole immune system. Do you give and receive affection everyday? Five positive strokes a day is a minimum required for a good immune system. In my jargon a stroke is a recognition of you as a person. It can be as simple as a cheery Hello, How are you? or Thats a pretty dress. or You did a bully of a job! or an embrace. Thats the best kind. When I was little my family called me the kissing bug. I think it was how I dealt with a group of crazy adults. Is there a friend or relative that you can confide in, complain to (oh yes, complain. God lets you live longer!), brainstorm with? Buddies are good for you. Coffee klotches are good for you. Chocolate is good for you 85 percent cocoa is best. Quiet time is good for you. It is important to avoid excesses for good mental health whether it be food, liquor or work. The only excess is hugs. Cant get too many of them. Are you having any fun? Being playful and getting strokes can probably counter any depression there is. And what of your spiritual life? Mind, body and spirit is what makes us whole. Astrong belief in something beyond the self brings comfort and reassurance, not unlike the family doctor who brings us physical comfort. Spirituality brings us mental comfort. I have no skill in offering you a road but that is what religious groups are for and libraries and meditation and so many areas, even the Internet. Depression cannot exist when mind, body and spirit are in sync. All this is nothing new but often we tend to forget. Alife review is always in order. It helps us to refocus on what is important and how we are caring for ourselves. Now all you have to do is say OK Ma and do as I say! Oh yes and exercise! Atidbit taken off the Internet a long time ago and modified by me. To be recited with feeling! Basso! Profundo! Its wondrous What a hug can do. Ahug can cheer you When youre blue. Ahug can say I love you so, Welcome, Great to see you. Ahug can soothe a small childs pain And bring a rainbow after rain.

C M Y K if my friends were there, he said. Falling silent for a moment, Dettman shook his head. I was watching the History Channel the other night. Theyre going to have a special program about the attack on Sunday. I dont know that I want to watch that thing all over again. I dont know if its something I want to relive. Its too painful, and my memories are still up here, he said, tapping his forehead.Tom Dunn, Sebring deputy fire chiefShock, said Deputy Chief Tom Dunn when asked what thoughts he had when the towers were hit. The other firefighters in the room got quiet as Dunn began to tell of his remembrances. Like everyone else, I was in disbelief. I remember the second plane hitting, even then I was shocked. Then the realization set in that we were under attack. It was not an accident, but deliberate, Dunn said. It was a scary deal, especially if you were a first responder. You knew that other first responders were in the towers when they began collapsing, and it broke our hearts. We just knew that a lot of people would not get out, said Dunn in a reverent voice. Dunn, a fireman of 33 years this October, had family in New York not in the city at the time, but in the White Plains area. My brother is a fireman in West Chester, and I have other family in New York. Everything changed that day about how you viewed things; terrorist threats are now real. You dont know how to stop those threats, but I think our government is doing the best they can. This is a new generation of warfare, Dunn said. None of the others in the office wanted to add anything to Dunns story. Some said they were in high school that day and others were on duty, but all bowed their heads just a little and all quieted down when 9/11 was mentioned. All of them remembered.Adrian Gamez, HCSO deputyAdrian Gamez, 25, a three-year veteran patrol deputy with the Highlands County Sheriffs Office, was in the ninth grade in 2001. He remembers being in science class when the principal announced over the public address system that a plane had just hit the north tower of the World Trade Center. Gamez said his teacher immediately turned on the television, just in time for the class to witness the second plane fly into the south tower. As soon as he put the T.V. on, all of us didnt do much work, Gamez said, adding he clearly remembers the teacher telling the class history was happening right before their eyes, and the world would be changed forever. Gamez said after the initial shock, you start to feel angry. Had I been eligible, Id have left school right then to go sign up (in the military). It definitely made a difference in choosing my career.Andrew Bowser, Army veteranAndrew Bowser, 29, of Sebring left the army this June after serving for seven years, including three combat tours in Iraq. He was a Specialist (E-4) and worked as an infantry fire team leader. I had just graduated from (Sebring) high school in 2001 and I was working at my job when I heard about the jets hitting the towers. I had always wanted to join the military and for that to happen just motivated me more to do it. I wanted to bring the fight to them, so in 2004 I left for the army. It made me so angry that people could do such a cowardly thing to kill innocent people like it was nothing. I wanted to protect the nation so nothing would happen like that again. Bowser added, I didnt have a choice on where I did my deployments. If I could, I wouldve done at least one (tour) in Afghanistan. Ten years after the attack he remains angry. It still upsets me, he said. I almost wish I didnt get out (of the army). I want to be a part of our nations security. I would go back to war for this country any day if I was asked to. Im very proud of what I did for the country.Warren West, Avon Park fire captainAdecade following the terrorist attack Avon Park firefighter Warren West worries that people forget how much first responders at the WTC suffered in general, and the number who were killed. Ten years ago we were heroes, now weve become scapegoats, he said, referring to civilian concerns over the cost of police and firefighter pensions.Angelo Lugo, proud, worried fatherAngelo Lugo is a retired New York police officer who now lives in Lake Placid. For decades he was a law enforcement officer, retiring in the spring of 2001. By late summer, however, Lugo wished he was still active. I retired six months before 9/11. My son was there that day, Lugo said. Lugos son, Glenn, is currently a detective with the New York City Police Department, stationed in Queens. Ten years ago he was a uniformed officer in Manhattan. He was on his way to work when the first tower fell down, Angelo Lugo said. He called me. Several people called me. They said Hey, the towers, theyve been hit, Lugo said. According to his father, Glenn Lugo was one of the many first responders at the scene. They had those little white face masks, you know, Angelo Lugo said. The medical people said they would be okay with them, but he had so much dust and stuff it all went through it. Glenn Lugo stayed at the WTC site for a week after the attacks. He worked all week. He stayed there a week without going home, said his father. Lugo spoke briefly of ailments his son Glen has been battling the past few years. They both believe his liver and kidney problems are a result of the exposure to the debris at ground zero. Glen was under bucket patrol, out in the landfill yard. He got on a conveyor belt and he looked for fingers, hands, rings anything that would identify a person. It was very hard work, Lugo said, adding the Fraternal Order of Police released something recently. It said that 75 people have died as a result of exposure at ground zero. Its very sad. Glenn Lugo, along with fellow colleagues, was required to photograph scenes at the site. He took so many pictures. Ive accumulated about 50 or 60 pictures from him. Theyve never been seen before. Alot of the officers have photos; they are sad and horrible, Lugo said. Many of Glenn Lugos photographs will be featured on the video presentation to be shown at St. Francis Assisi Church during its Sept. 11 ceremony today. Angelo Lugo is traveling to NYC to be with his son for the memorial service. Glenn Lugo is eligible for retirement in four years, though his father is not sure he will be able to retire. He only has four years to go. He wants to retire, but he has a family to support. Hes got a wife, three daughters and a son. I wish my son was in better health. I really do. I hope that he can retire. Im very proud of him, Lugo said.

And its not j ust the wealthy who require these services; many middleclass families are turning to outside financial advice as well. Some people simply require a one-time, objective opinion about whether their current financial plan will meet their future needs, whether for saving for retirement, buying a home or building a sufficient emergency fund. Others havent even started a plan and dont know where to begin. Here are a few suggestions for finding the right financial advisor: When searching for a financial advisor, look for someone well-qualified in their field, whose ethics and professional behavior are above reproach and with whom you can be comfortable discussing intimate financial details. Seek someone who asks probing questions, listens to your needs and concerns, wont try to sell you unneeded products or services, and can explain in plain English the potential risks and rewards of every recommended action. Ask for referrals from trusted friends, relatives, coworkers and professionals like accountants and lawyers. Find out what factors they used to choose their financial planners and how satisfied they are with the results. Interview at least three candidates. Most professionals will provide a free or low-cost initial consultation and may ask you to fill out a detailed questionnaire beforehand to help guide the discussion. And be prepared with your own questions, including: Work experience how long practicing, types of clients, areas of specialization, etc. Qualifications, including education, licenses, credentials and other certifications. Fee structure are they paid an hourly rate, a flat fee per task, by commission, or a combination of fees and commissions. Services and products offered some people believe its a conflict of interest for advisors to earn commissions for products they recommend, so ask for full disclosure if they arent feeonly. References from current and past clients. For additional questions to ask, visit the Securities and Exchange Commission (www.sec.gov/investor/brokers.htm) and the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (www.cfp.net). Many types of professionals call themselves financial planners, but training and specialization vary widely some are essentially salespeople. Common designations include: Certified Financial Planner, Certified Financial Consultant, Certified Public Accountant/Personal Financial Specialist and NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor, but the list goes on. Most groups that certify financial planners have their own credentialing requirements, regulators and ethical guidelines, but education and experience requirements vary. Good resources for learning more about the different types of financial planners, as well as locating local professionals, include the Financial Planning Association (www.fpanet.org), the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (www.napfa.org), and the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (www.cfp.net). Before hiring a financial advisor, investigate his or her background and disciplinary history, as well as that of their firm. The CFPBoard of Standards provides links to the appropriate regulatory agencies (www.cfp.net/learn/knowledgebase.asp?id=7). Many considerations come into play when hiring a financial planner, but its worth the effort. You wouldnt entrust your health to a doctor in whom you dont have complete confidence, and the same should apply to the expert giving advice on handling your hard-earned money.

Along this exciting journey, Davis will be stopping at other real estate offices in all the states he travels through to speak and to continue to raise money for KWCares along the way.

By CHRIS KAHN APEnergy WriterNEWYORK Oil and gasoline futures tumbled Friday on growing concerns about Europes economy. If the slide continues, it could pull down the average gasoline pump price from the record high its at for this time of year. Benchmark crude fell $2.50, or 2.8 percent, to $86.55 per barrel in New York. Brent crude los t $2.14 at $112.41 per barrel in London. Prices dropped after the European Central Bank said a top official was leaving unexpectedly. Juergen Stark, the banks top economist, resigned for personal reasons, bu t analysts took his departure as a sign of deepening divisions over how to solve Europes debt crisis. Europe is a major consumer of diesel fuel, and its economic woes have sent tremors through world markets. Were all interconnected, independent analys t Andrew Lipow said. I f the European economy slows down, itll slow down spending on things that matter in the U.S., like tourism. Stocks also lost ground on the news out of Europe. In afternoon trading the Dow Jones industrial average, the S&P500 index and the Nasdaq composite index were all down more than 2 percent. The ECB announcemen t pushed up the dollar, and the euro fell. That likely pulled oil even lower. Oil down nearly 3% on Europe concerns

C M Y K By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK A90-yard return for a touchdown during the opening kickoff was the only bright spot of the night for the Red Devils who were overrun by Hardee 437 at Joe Franza Stadium on Friday night. Avon Parks Tyler Johnson broke the return on the kick-off and ended with 137 total yards rushing. Johnson broke another return for 33 yards late in the game, but the Devil offense just could not make anything out of his efforts. We couldnt get anything going tonight, said Avon Park head coach Andy Bonjokian. It was ugly, and we really didnt show up. Tyler Johnson came to play, and he played hard, Bonjokian continued. There was a lot of individual effort out there, but we couldnt get anything going. Abroken clock kept both sides guessing at the time, but Bonjokian knew that his defense was out in the cold too long. Our defense was on the field way too long. We had no time to throw, he said. We have a lot of work to do. We have to learn from our mistakes and play assignment football. Hardee held the Devils to just 62 yards rushing, and Avon Park quarterback Ryan Dick completed three of his six passing attempts for a total of 16 yards. Avon Parks running back Charles Louis would also put in a good effort, rushing for 11 yards on nine carries, but the Devil offensive line could not step together, leaving jitterbugs like Johnson on their own and allowing Dick to take a pounding when the pocket collasped. Hardees stable was able to pound out 280 yards on the ground and six touchdowns. Wildcat Andrew Hooks led Hardee in rushing, picking up Avon Park, Lake Placid, Sebring all come up short SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, September 11, 2011 0-for-Friday night News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Aaron Hankerson goes up to haul in this Davaris Faulk pass for a 29-yard gain, setting up a Donovan White field goal Friday night. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.co m FROSTPROOF The pregame rains that passed through, and the accompanying lightning delay, started the night a little off. And thats how it would play out for the Blue Streaks as a litany of mistakes were too much to overcome in Fridays 20-12 loss to the Bulldogs. You cant make that many mistakes or else you wont be able to beat a JVteam, head coach LaVaar Scott said afterward. Not taking anything away from Frostproof, but we beat ourselves tonight. It started out in relatively traditional fashion as the Sebring defense handled the Bulldogs first drive with little worry. The Streak offense then got the ball back near midfield and started a charge that got them inside the 10 with Samuel Jacobs carrying the bulk of the rushing load. But a fumbled snap was pounced upon by the Dogs to give Frostproof the ball back. From there, neither team could get much of anything going, with three-and-outs, including another Sebring fumble, taking up most of the first half. Athwarted Sebring drive that ended at the Bulldog two pitted Frostproof precariously deep and the ensuing drive would only get to the four before a punt got the Streaks in prime field position at the 32. And it didnt take long, one play in fact, for Jake Bryan to flash through the middle on a 32-yard touchdown. But the snap was a bit off on the extra point, so Sebring settled for a 6-0 lead. And though they dodged the big-play potential of DeSoto last week, Scotts awareness of the similarity of both sets of Bulldogs was soon realized as on Frostproofs next play from scrimmage, QB Zackary Jenkins found Tyrone Hamilton beyond the Sebring secondary for a 72-yard, gametying touchdown at the 3:11 mark of the second quarter. The Streaks then fumbled away their next possession, but the defense held and got the ball back. A29-yard completion from Davaris Faulk to Aaron Hankerson got the ball to the 26 before a holding call and consecutive incompletions made it third-and-20 from the 36. But Faulk found Bryan for 19 which, while not good enough for the first down, got it within range of Donovan White who made it 9-6 at the half with a 35-yard field goal. The Streaks looked to add on to the lead in their opening possession of the second half, as Faulk connected with Bryan on a 45-yard score but a penalty called it back and the drive soon ended. Frostproof then began a drive and started racking up the yards. Jacob Smith had a nine-yard gain, with Trevis Herrington the gaining seven and Hamilton 20. Afew shorter runs were mixed in, as was a six-yard pass from Jenkins to David Dyer to get it to the Sebring 13. The defense stepped up, stopping Herrington for a fiveyard loss, but Jenkins then found Kaleel Gaines open for 16 to bring it to the two. And Hamilton then darted in for a 12-9 Bulldog lead. They showed another formation that we had seen a little Mistakes, Bulldogs stymie Blue Streaks Frostproof20Sebring12 Hardee43Avon Park7 Special to the News-SunDespite less than ideal field conditions from the evening rains, the Dragons of Lake Placid came right out of the gate in Moore Haven Friday night. But big plays by the Terriers and a few costly mistakes by the Green Dragons paved the way to a 21-13 Moore Haven win. We gave up too many big plays and we just cant afford to do that, Lake Placid head coach Jason Holden said. Those and the turnovers just hurt us. But all was looking well for the guys in green at the start as Nevada Weaver broke through the defense for a long touchdown run on the Dragons first series, netting a 7-0 lead. But the Terriers snapped right back, driving down the field and evening things at 77. Then, when it looked like the conditions might help Lake Placid, Moore Haven flipped the script, turning a wild snap into a broken-field, free-for-all run for a score to take a 14-7 lead. But in the waning moments of the first half, the Dragons drove in and burst into the end zone to all but even the score. Amuffed extra point attempt, however, left a single point margin at halftime, 14-13. Moore Havens big-play ability was showcased in the early moments of the third quarter, as another long run stretched the lead to 21-13. And though Lake Placid would continue to push, continue to drive with the workhorse efforts of running back A.J. Gayle, those crucial, final yards could not be gained as fumbled snaps both hindered and stopped drives deep in Terrier territory. We played hard and fought to the end and Im proud of them, Holden said. We just have to work harder on maintaining our defensive assignments and holding onto the ball. The Dragons return home next Friday for a non-conference meeting with Cardinal Mooney before welcoming Ft. Myers Dunbar to town the following Friday to open their district slate.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The biggest wonder heading into the new season for Lake Placid volleyball was a certain new member of their district. With the Lady Dragons on hand Thursday night, the Lady Blue Streaks gave them a bit of a preview in Sebrings three-game sweep of DeSoto. Im definitely going to be there to watch, Lake Placid head coach Linette Wells said after her squads Tuesday win. And what they saw was an early back and forth as the Lady Bulldogs proved a bit feisty. But the Streaks got on track, pushing a 6-5 lead to 10-5, then 17-10 and 24-13 before some sloppy play allowed a DeSoto run that Volleyball give and take See SEBRING, Page 4B

Keyon Brown, Hardees other workhorse, netted 65 yards and one touchdown out of his nine carries. Abroken point-after play forced Hardees place kick holder Justin Knight to scramble in for two, putting the cap on the score at 43-7 Hardee. We have Mulberry at home next week and that isnt a district game, Bonjokian said. We have got to learn from our mistakes. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us. Continued from 1B of, Scott said. But we didnt get lined up to it and were a little off balance. We did get adjusted to it, but by then, we were fighting from behind. Along pass play from Faulk to Michael Weston was called back on a penalty to short-circuit the Streaks next drive but the defense stiffened with Devon Durham breaking into the backfield to sack Jenkins for a six-yard loss to get it back. But Sebrings next three plays from scrimmage were a motion penalty, a trip in the backfield and a fumble to give the Dogs the ball at the 19 at the bridge to the fourth quarter. After a three-yard Jenkins keeper, Smith went 16 yards on the next play and Marcus Bobb found the end zone on the two-point conversion for a 20-9 lead. The Streaks got things moving, somewhat, with Faulk passing to Ladante Harris for a 39-yard gain and later finding Weston for another 11 yards. Frostproof toed the line, though White showed the power of his leg on a 45-yard field goal to cut it to 20-12 with 8:36 left to play. Trying to work the clock now, the Bulldogs ran on six consecutive plays, churning out 25 yards to the Sebring 37. But the defense stepped up, forced a fumble and gave the Streaks another chance. After a sack and offsides penalty negated each other, Faulk scrambled for a 30-yard gain to the Frostproof 33. Faulk then found Hankerson again, this time for 28 yards to the Bulldog five. Bryan rumbled to the one on second down. But consecutive runs from the one netted no gain and Frostproof took over at their own goal line with 2:46 left to play. The Sebring defense locked down, allowing just two yards on three plays and getting the ball back on the 34 with 47 seconds left on the clock. But in the frenzy of this last-minute comeback, a pass went incomplete before one last fumble was grabbed by the Bulldogs to seal Sebrings fate. Were still a work in progress, offensively, but weve seen we can move the ball, Scott said. But you cant put the ball on the ground six times. We did a lot of good things, and Im proud of the way the kids kept fighting to the end. But we just beat ourselves. The Streaks will look to regroup and get back on track next week with a visit from Hardee on Cheerleader Barbecue night at Firemens Field.

Conversely, the second set was closer than the 2520 final indicated. The Bulldogs ran out to a 5-1 lead in that one, before a Kaley Walter kill highlighted a run that got the lead back at 8-6. But a combination of some scrappy play by DeSoto and some scattered play by Sebring kept the Bulldogs coming. Madison Harris had a kill and Bella Caraballo served up an ace, but a DeSoto run got the lead back at 14-12. Sebring caught and passed, with a Meghan Lollis block and Sydnee Connelly ace making it 1814. But another run knotted it at 20-20 before Sebrings final surge, stamped by a Caraballo kill, for the win. Tired of keeping things interesting, the Streaks took off in the third, and soon to be final, set, getting ahead early and keeping up the intensity in a 25-12 win. And while Sebring was pleased to get the win heading into the weekends prestigious and plentiful Bartow tournament, it was the Lady Dragons, recently still dealing with some lacks of focus, who were also buoyed by Thursdays result. Lake Placid took three wins Friday, in the best-ofthree format to squeeze in the multitude of teams in the two-day event. The Dragons swept past Hardee, All Saints Catholic and host Bartow to leave them needing just one win to get to the championship game Saturday. It was awesome, we all played so well, senior outside hitter Alana Nielander said. We were one big family out there. Interestingly, Lake Placid would be playing the winner of Sebrings pool in that quest.

Special to the News-SunNancy Dales book The Legacy of the Florida Pioneer Cow Hunters In Their Own Words is available at nancydalephd.com and online bookstores. The founding fathers of Florida are the pioneer cow hunters who migrated south in the 1800s when the government opened up new territories after the Seminole Indian Wars. In search of wide open prairies and water, daring young pioneers loaded up their families in covered wagons, gathered up their cattle, and ventured south. It was a long and arduous journey Ben Hill Griffin III of Frostproof says: My grandfather migrated from Georgia after the Civil War to work in the phosphate mines in Fort Meade. He had nothing more than a few dollars and meager belongings but he had perseverance.They cleared the land with gripping hoes and hauled water up from the lake for the land and personal needs. Sixth-generation cattle rancher and former Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court, Jim Alderman of Okeechobee, says his great grandfather, Streaty Parker migrated from North Carolina. At Fort Meade, he led the Hickory Boys to stop cattle rustling. Margaret Mims Aldermans lefe spans more than six generations of cattle ranchers. E.O. Morgan her husbands granddaddy was the Cattle King of the South. Gene Crosby, cattle manager of the Deseret Ranch, was raised in Holopaw, a former timber town. When the industry went under, his daddy got a job at the Deseret Ranch where Crosby grew up. But times have changed as creeping urbanization threatens the once vas t rangelands of Florida. Today, many small ranchers cannot support their family raising cattle. One of the larges t micropolitan cities in the United States covers Oxford rancher, Mann Baileys birthplace. He says, sometimes people stare at me in my everyday working cowboy clothes but I dont think they realize I am the Native not the oddity. These are true stories o f struggle, survival, courage, fortitude and foresight as told by the pioneer cow hunters in their own words. To order personally signed copies, contact Dale at 214-8351 or email nancydalephd@gmail.com. Softbound books are $20, and hardbound are $29.95. Dales Cow Hunters book available By PAULDERGARABEDIAN For The Associated PressLOS ANGELES The fall movie season breaks out this weekend with Steven Soderberghs all-star Contagion from Warner Bros. inoculating the domestic movie marketplace with a gross of around $25 million and firing The Help from its three-week stint at No. 1. Starring Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and more, Contagions A-list cast, scientific realism and IMAX screens offer an infectious mix for sophisticated audiences looking for a taut, brainy thriller about pandemic pandemonium. Disneys The Help enters its fifth weekend with nearly $130 million in hard-earned cash, and with another small weekend drop expected, the film should tidy things up in the low teens. The likely third-place contender with an expected gross of close to $10 million is Lionsgates Warrior, starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton as brothers who wind up competing in a highstakes mixed martial arts tournament. Nick Nolte, in an Oscar-worthy performance, plays their estranged, recovered-alcoholic father who is suddenly thrust into the role of trainer for one of them. Astronger-than-expected Labor Day weekend debut and solid mid-week grosses by The Debt from Focus Features should land the espionage thriller starring Helen Miren in fourth place with around $7 million.

Don Seymour, Senior Pastor. Phone 452-0088.PLACESTOWORSHIP Recently I took my son to Gatorama for the alligator hatching event, which occurs every August. In case you havent heard of this miraculous wonder, its where the visitor gets to hold an alligator egg while it hatches. It was truly an amazing experience for my son and I would highly recommend it for any of parent that has children who love animals. The look of pure delight on my sons face when the little creature emerged from its egg was priceless. But Gatorama is more than a fascinating place to see reptiles up close and personal. It also serves as an alligator farm. It is a place where one can be thrilled at the sight of hundreds of alligators and crocodiles and watch while the brave staff members feed the huge beasts, but its also a site where aquaculture is being practiced. By controlling the conditions for these cold blooded creatures, the owners can maintain a steady supply of products that are more uniform in size and price. In addition, these aquatic critter producers may create ideal breeding conditions which allow increased growth rates and enhanced disease resistance. As with all supply and demand, once the product becomes more plentiful, costs will decrease, making it more affordable to the consumer. Since the science of aquaculture is becoming more popular and prevalent in todays world, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has set up an Aquaculture Program. Its mission is to conduct high quality, relevant, basic and applied aquaculture research and technology transfer to create jobs and economic activity that will improve the international competitiveness and sustainability of the United States aquaculture, and reduce dependence on imported seafood and threatened ocean fisheries. There are many advantages to the controlled conditions of producing aquatic plants and animals in aquaculture. The research components of the program include: Genetic improvement Integrated aquatic animal health management Reproduction and early development Growth, development and nutrition Aquaculture production systems Sustainability and environmental compatibility of aquaculture Quality, safety and variety of aquaculture products for consumers. But gator farming isnt the only type of aquaculture being practiced these days. There are many different types of aquaculture. Algaculture is the farming of algae or seaweed. Fish farming is the raising of fish in tanks or enclosures, generally for food. Freshwater prawn farming is designed to raise and produce freshwater prawn or shrimp for food. Mariculture is the farming of marine organisms and shrimp farming is the cultivation of marine shrimp for human consumption. In addition, many tropical species of aquatic life are collected for aquariums and pets. So, we can see that aquaculture is becoming big business. According to the USDA Economic Research Service, during the past two decades, the value of U.S. aquaculture production rose to nearly $1 billion. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports that aquaculture is the fastest growing form of food production in the world. Globally, nearly half the fish consumed by humans is produced by fish farms and this trend is expected to continue. Although aquaculture is a popular science in this century, it is certainly not a new practice. It has been used in China since about 2500 b.c. The Hawaiian people have been using it for over 1,000 years. The Japanese, Romans, Europeans and Canadians have all utilized this practice for years and continue to do so in todays world. Americans jumped on the bandwagon in the 20th century with the harvesting of wild kelp. Today, aquaculture is big business worldwide. Interest in aquaculture production is on the rise for various reasons and the practice is catching on in a big way in the United States. Our recent aquaculture experience was certainly a memorable one. Not only did we have fun during our visit to the gator farm, we learned quite a bit. My son got to hold an alligator while it was squiggling out of its egg; he learned that alligators dont eat once the water gets below 70 degrees; he understands that alligators reproduce better when the water they live in is warm year round. We also learned, first hand, that crocodiles and alligators can swim backwards.We saw it happen and we also know that they can jump pretty high, especially when they are being fed.But PLEASE dont try that at home. Corine Burgess is the Natural Resources Specialist for the Highlands County Natural Resources Department assistin g the Highlands Soil & Water Conservation District (www.highlandsswcd.org). Aquaculture is an educational and fun experience News From The Watershed Corine Burgess Courtesy photo Justin Burgess holds an alligator egg while the tiny creature hatches in his hands.

KAREN ZRAICK Associated PressNEWYORK Rebuilding the World Trade Center is more than a job for Brian Lyons. Its a way to pay homage to his younger brother Michael, a firefighter killed in the Sept. 11 attacks and a way for Lyons to heal from his loss. Lyons has spent 10 years at the site. He rushed there with his brothers firefighting gear to look for him after the attacks; he stayed to help in the rescue and recovery; and then to work on the rebuilding. Lyons has been a key player nearly everywhere on the site and is now a project manager for Tishman Construction, overseeing the $3.4 billion transportation hub that will link the PATH train, the subway and nearby buildings. Everythings coming out of the ground now, he said as workers busily readied the site. Theres no more pit. I try to actually call this the World Trade Center now. We dont refer to it as ground zero anymore. The sites signature skyscraper formerly called the Freedom Tower and now called 1 World Trade Center is visible for miles around. It will rise to 1,776 feet, making it the tallest building in the U.S. Tower 4 is rising quickly and the foundations for two other office buildings are almost at street level. The transportation hub, designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, is taking shape. Theres so much to celebrate now, said Lyons, whose experience was chronicled in the documentary Rebirth that followed five people whose lives were transformed by the attacks. The 800,000-square-foot transportation hub will resemble no other structure in New York, or perhaps the world. Calatrava has designed a distinctive glass and steel structure that evokes a birds wings. Planners expect 250,000 people will pass through daily. Lyons said it will be grander than Grand Central. It gives you a sense of dignity on your way to work, he said of the design. It also includes ample retail space. Construction has picked up over the last year and is scheduled to be completed in 2014. Associated PressNEWYORK Every day, Michael Simon is reminded of 11 men he worked alongside as a rookie firefighter, in the lessons of the craft they taught him, by their photos hanging on the walls of his Manhattan firehouse. Ten years ago, all 11 died in the Sept. 11 attacks, and Simon can still remember that warm, sunny September day: his mother calling to tell him to turn on the news, rushing to his West Village firehouse, hearing that hundreds of first responders were missing in the fiery rubble. For days, he and fellow firefighters believed that the 11 would emerge from some pocket in the smoldering chaos of concrete and steel where 343 firefighters died. We never lost hope, he said, until Sept. 14, when the men from Engine Co. 24, Ladder Co. 5, Battalion 2 found the remains of nine of their colleagues, crushed or pulverized in the World Trade Centers north tower. Two were never found. He was stunned at how the remains had settled in the debris: in the same order of rank and position as the firefighters would line up when responding to New York City fires. In the rain, we carried them down one by one, Simon remembers, swallowing hard as he stands talking by a fire engine. They were up on a pile, and getting them down from there was a job in itself. It was a bittersweet day, he says. We were able to bring them home, but it was also a day of total devastation. The next day, the surviving firefighters performed the most wrenching task of all: notifying the mens families. Its taken the department years to fill the vacuum of experience left by the men who passed on their skills to newcomers at the red brick firehouse on Sixth Avenue, says Lt. Michael Thomas of Ladder Co. 5. They had a wealth of knowledge that they shared with us, says Simon. Their knowledge, their wisdom made me carry on to this day. Adds Simon, I think of them every day, and what they had taught me. Only a handful of firefighters from 9/11 remain at the firehouse, but you get bombarded with it, you cant turn on the TVwithout being reminded of it, says Thomas. Its always the same every year. Its just as bad, as evil. The firehouses losses from the terrorist attack did not end on Sept. 11, 2001. Two more men died in a 2007 blaze at the 9/11-damaged Deutsche Bank building they were dismantling. And even before 9/11, grief visited the firehouse nestled in a historic Manhattan neighborhood. In 1994, three members died after becoming trapped in a burning apartment. But theres one joy to look forward to with each anniversary: the visits from families. Well talk about the good times and the laughs we had, says Simon. We see their kids, how theyve grown. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 11, 2011Page 11B AVON PARK MUSEUM; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 9/11/11; 00011809 SEBRING PEDIATRICS, LLC; 3.639"; 4"; Black; 9/11/11; 00011815 10 YEARS LATER 9II NY firefighter thinks of 9/11 dead every day MCT A memorial honors the 11 firefighters from Ladder Co. 5 who died on Sept. 11, 2001. By CRISTIAN SALAZAR Associated PressNEWYORK His family has his spare firefighter uniform, but not the one he wore on 9/11 or any other trace of him. Killed at the World Trade Center, 32-year-old Scott Kopytkos remains were never recovered a painful legacy of grief for families looking for answers, closure or final confirmation that their loved one was actually a 9/11 victim. Very painful and very hurt is how Russell Mercer, Kopytkos stepfather, describes it. And mistrusting of everybody. Numbers tell the story in the decade of search and recovery of the remains of Sept. 11 victims a massive forensic investigation marked by a Supreme Court appeal of families who wanted a more thorough search, and discoveries years after the attacks of even more remains in manholes and on rooftops around ground zero. Tens of millions have been spent, including on the painstaking extraction of DNAfrom tiny bone fragments, using technology refined from a decade ago. Of 21,000 remains that have been recovered, nearly 9,000 are unidentified, because of the degraded condition they were found in. More than 1,100 victims have no identifiable remains. And the pace of the process is telling in five years, only 26 new identifications. Ernest James, a 40year-old man who worked in the trade centers north tower, was the last identification, in late August. I cant give a time frame of when an identification is going to be made, if at all, said Mark Desire, who heads the World Trade Center identification unit for the city medical examiners office. But we are working nonstop. Five scientists work seven days a week trying to make new identifications at a lab in an ultra-modern building on the east side of Manhattan. The unidentified remains are stored in climate-controlled conditions under a white tent blocks from the medical examiners office. About 400 bone fragments are looked at and analyzed every month. DNAanalysis is done by comparing the remains genetic profile to DNA found from victimspossessions, like toothbrushes; from relatives; or from previously identified remains. Most of the DNAprofiles generated belong to previously identified victims. When an identification is made, the remains are returned to the family. Sometimes, nothing survives the DNAtesting. Relatives might only receive the packaging where the remains had been stored. Desire, assistant director of forensic biology for the medical examiners office, says the office wont give up. The dedication of this team ... is as strong as it was 10 years ago, he said. But the extended search baffles family members like Mercer. You can find DNAfrom the Civil War, World War I and World War II, he said. But you cant find DNA from first responders o r civilians? The struggle to identify the 9/11 dead began almos t immediately after the attacks in New York City, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pa., where one of the hijacked planes crashed in the woods and plains before reaching its intended target. In Pennsylvania, the hea t caused by the high-speed crash into a field caused 92 percent of the human remains to vaporize, leaving very little to work with, said Wallace Miller, the county corner who helped to identify the victims. DNAwas used to make matches to the 40 victims, plus four sets o f remains from the terrorists. To this day, remains are still embedded in the field where the flight went down. Most of the 184 victims a t the Pentagon also were identified using DNA. All bu t five where there was no t enough material to analyze were identified, said Paul Stone, spokesman for the U.S. Armed Forces Medical Examiner System. 10 years, 21,000 bone fragments, but no 9/11 closure Some victims remains never identified Rebuilding WTC in homage to a fallen brother

DearReaders: Today marks the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Please take a moment and join me in offering a prayer for those innocent individuals who lost their lives there and in the field in Pennsylvania on that horrific day. If September 11 has taught us anything, it is how strong the American people can be when we are challenged. DearAbby: How do you prevent damage in your home from children whose parents will not control them while theyre visiting? I keep a box of toys and offer them to the children, but they often prefer to handle my personal objects, many of which are heirloom antiques. One visitor allowed her child to jump on my sofa, then offered to replace a shattered ceramic bowl her son had thrown like a Frisbee. Its not replaceable, I told her. It belonged to my great-grandmother. Her response was that I should have put anything valuable out of reach. It seems even the most polite suggestion to children angers their parents. My parents would never have allowed me to behave disrespectfully in someones home. Must I show everyone the door because their children behave like animals? Whos Minding the Menagerie DearWhos: Thats one intelligent option. Conscientious parents take the time to patiently teach their children, as yours did, that they cant touch everything they see. They also think ahead and bring toys they know the kids will enjoy in case they become bored. In cases like this, visit lazy parents only on their own turf or when theyre child-free for an afternoon or evening. DearAbby: I work in an office with mostly women. My husband and I bought a new car a few months ago. Whenever the car comes up in conversation, a few of my co-workers dont hesitate to say what they dont like about it. After I was nice enough to give one of them a ride home one night, she said the new car smell gave her a headache. I would never say anything negative about something like that, but these women seem to enjoy it. I wish I could come back with some smart remark, but they are in higher positions than I am and I dont want to create problems. They dont seem to care if they do, though. What should I say next time? I tell myself Ill never offer a ride to them again. Let them walk. Am I being rude for thinking that? Driving Myself Crazy DearDriving: Your idea of not providing transportation to the complainers is a good one. My advice is, in the future, not to raise the subject of your new car which should reduce the number of comments you hear about it. Its not rude to THINK something but as your co-workers have demonstrated, it can be very insensitive to let everything you think pass your lips unedited. DearAbby: I work for a package delivery company and there is a problem thats all too common for people in my line of work. PLEASE tell dog owners to confine their dog before opening a door to accept a package. I have been bitten twice in the past two years by dogs that dont bite. I have also been scared more times than I can count by dogs that have charged at me. When a customer takes the time to put their dog in another room before coming to the door, I make sure to let him or her know how much I appreciate it. Its difficult to be pleasant and professional when my heart is racing and adrenaline is raging because someones dog is barking and running at me. Thanks, Abby, from my fellow delivery drivers and me. Twice Bitten in Daytona Beach DearTwice Bitten: Youre welcome. If your letter convinces the owners of aggressive dogs to confine them faster than you can spell L-A-W-S-U-I-T, then its purpose will have been served. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren.

Romantic endeavors on your mind this week, Gemini I turned the calendar to September and was struck once again how one day leaped off the page. Sept. 11, a day well never forget. And now 10 years have gone by and still it takes only a word or image and old wounds reopen. It was such a day in late July when I was listening to the radio. The person interviewed was a Sept. 11, 2001 survivor. As she told her story and they played back words and prayers spoken in the days that followed, the scars of healing throbbed anew. She recounted how by the grace of God she had fled one of the twin towers only to realize she had had only three minutes to spare. This senseless act of terrorism and others like it distress and confuse us. The Holocaust, Pearl Harbor, so many events of history that took the lives of the innocent. We want to know why some people will commit evil acts against others. Mans inhumanity to man stumps us. And we ask why God would allow such things. Why questions can leave us paralyzed. That is why I believe we must remember with eyes of faith. Eyes that recall the faithful who selflessly gave their all to try and stop the terrorists; those who tried to rescue as many as they could; others who gave a glass of cold water and a dish of food to physically replenish the body; and, still others who ministered to the many wounded and hurting souls. On that day in a Pennsylvania field, at the Pentagon and at the twin towers, I believe God wept with us. I believe he was there to welcome believers into his presence; to bring comfort in moments of terror. He opened his everlasting arms to all who sought him. Remember, Jesus experienced the terror of evil men who beat him to within an inch of his life and then nailed him to a cross. He knows the pain of evil. He is our God, who died in our place; who said on the cross, Father forgive them for they know not what they do.And whose death and resurrection assured us that he is ultimately the conqueror of sin and the grave. Jesus said, In this world you will have tribulation. But, be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. We cannot walk through these memories alone today anymore than we could the day it happened. We must walk with the only trustworthy One who has promised to never leave us or forsake us. Selah. Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.
