The day grew more interesting as bike show entrants began to f all in shortly after opening ceremonies. Hundreds of attendees crowded the Circle and the surrounding streets to walk, interact, and enjoy the festivities. Today is the last day of Run to the Heartland and several events are still scheduled for residents a nd riders to enjoy.

Karen Kensinger, a ssistant elections supervisor, said the e arlier date moved up from March was selected giveR epublican voters more influence in selecting their c andidate. The question of whether the Democratic Party will hold a presidential primary at all is still unanswered.B y state statute both parties have to submit a list of prim ary candidates by Oct. 31. Kensinger said well know at that time. S he also said this is not the first time the primary has been bumped forward.I n 2008, the presidential primary was also held in January. What it means, she said, is that well have to prepare into the holidays eason in order to be ready, but we did it before. Andrew Tuck, the Republican Partys county chairman, told the NewsS un Friday he had met with the local Republican commit-t ee Thursday night and it voted unanimously to ask thes tate committee not to schedule the elect ion before March 6. Now that the January date is a done deal, he said,h e hopes Florida isnt penalized. Alot of people are upset. Washington is threatening to pull convention delegates, but I think they are bluffing. Its a crazyt hing. The election will hinge on what Florida does, a nd its the most important election of our lifetimes. They can boost voterm orale by just moving on.

Following are a list of some of mine – anyone else have a problem with these? — Pushy phone solicitors: Not all phone solicitors fall into this category. If you are a polite person who takes my answer “no” with grace and promptly gets off the phone, you are OK. No, the ones I’m talking about are the ones who don’t seem to understand the definition of “no.” They keep trying to sell me their product, even when I’ve made it abundantly clear I’m not interested. And I’m not the type of person to just hang up on them, which means I have to resort to other means to get them to shut up, such as sarcasm.I’m rarely in a good mood after taking one of these calls. — Lovebugs: I suppose that lovebugs might rank as more than a pet peeve for me. But let’s face it; they are as annoying as anything out there. I’ve yet to meet a person who can tell me with a straight face that they like the miserable things. Yet they linger on, making their twice yearly appearance here in Highlands County, floating about and smearing our windshields and car grills. If you aren’t from Florida and don’t know what I’m talking about, be thankful. Lovebugs are very unlovable. Trust me. — People who pass along “news” items without checking them out first: I could probably devote an entire column to this.There are people who will read something on the Internet, assume it’s true, and then promptly send it out to 50,000 of their closest friends without checking it out for themselves. There are good websites online dedicated to debunking urban myths, such as www.snopes.com. It doesn’t take long and it isn’t very hard to check out an item before sending it out. Trust me when I say that people will appreciate your thoughtfulness even if they don’t come out and thank you for it. — People who refer to a sitting president as “your president”: It drove me crazy when people did this regarding President Bush and it drives me crazy that the opposite side is doing it to President Obama. Look, even if you didn’t vote for him he got elected, and thus he is the president. You don’t have to like it, but how about some respect for the office, OK? — Bad drive thru speakers: There was a fast food place here in Sebring that had the worst speakers ever created.The person on the other end always sounded as if they were talking with marbles in their mouth. The only reason I kept going there for a while was I craved their menu now and then. I think they’ve fixed it since, because it sounds better then it did in the past. Just be warned, fast food restaurants, bad speakers make for cranky customers. — Dairy Queen Blizzards: What, you may ask, is my beef with a Dairy Queen Blizzard? Aren’t they good? Yes and therein lies the problem. They are too good.So good they are impossible to resist. Especially when I think about flavors such as German Chocolate Brownie Midnight Truffle, and Chocolate Extreme ... I’d go on, but I think I’m going to have to stop for now.For some reason I have drool all over my keyboard. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Opinions expressed in letters or columns are solely the opinion of that author and not necessarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the News-Sun All items will run on a first-come basis as space permits, although more timely ones could be moved up. After spending the summer touring the state, holding town hall meetings that solicited public input on redistricting, House Reapportionment Committee Chairman Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, set deadlines for submitting new maps for 120 House, 40 Senate and 27 congressional districts. The public has until Nov. 1 to turn in its proposals, while legislators have until Nov. 14. Why the two-week gap? Committee members already are up against a compressed timeline. They have to complete the maps, submit them for federal approval and endure inevitable legal challenges. Meanwhile, nobody — incumbent or challenger — knows what their district looks like, yet they have to begin preparing for the Aug. 14, 2012 primaries. Now that’s truly “fast and furious.” Sen. Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, who chairs the Senate Reapportionment Committee, announced a more sensible schedule for the Senate: All maps, public and legislative, should be on his doorstep Nov. 1. But Gaetz also laid out an aggressive, but we believe fair, timetable to complete this process. He said he intends to unveil a committee bill with maps for all types of districts by the week of Dec. 5 (and sooner would be better). He also wants to allow the public final input, not with another town hall road show — obviously, there’s no time left for that — but perhaps with a teleconference. To that end, Gaetz said he would oppose late-filed amendments that had not been public for at least two days, and that he would not decide on committee measures until a week after they have been released. That should give voters some time to review the legislative product and respond. ... Reapportionment rarely goes smoothly, and this time the state is embarking on it under substantially different rules: Amendments 5 and 6, passed last year, which are supposed to remove politics from deciding how district lines are drawn. Legislators have complained the restrictions are almost impossible to comply with. As a result, they anticipate several legal challenges. That’s why it’s vital that, now more than ever, the process must be made as transparent as possible, and Floridians must embrace it. New maps should reflect Gaetz’s solicitations of public opinion, and not backroom deals between incumbent politicians. An editorial from the Panama City NewsHerald. Redistricting should be transparent The time for talking is over. Members of Florida’s Reapportionment Committee now must pick up their pencils and pens and start drawing new legislative districts — quickly. And so should the public. NLight concert was worth the waitEditor: I had the pleasure of watching the most wonderful program of songs last evening by the NLight. It was their first appearance in five years.We who attended thought they sounded like they had never stopped singing together. What a variety of songs they sung and they were very entertaining. I hope to see more of them. Ellen McKissock SebringOp-Ed page has some common senseEditor: I love Sebring. I won’t go into those details now, but you all have a great little town. Having worked for different newspapers for 25 years, I can also say (and have told people) you have one of the greatest little newspapers in America and I hope you get the appropriate awards to prove it. Agood example is today’s edition (WednesdayThursday, Sept. 28-29). On the Op-Ed page is a very succinct and common sense article by William C. Gates of Sebring. Today’s editorial is a killer, “Hidden Costs Add Up;” also very common sense. I do hope you and Mr. Gates have your common sense and “thought” policy insurance paid up. And look out overweight people – control of what you eat is next “for your health’s sake.” Bob Bull SebringTime to say goodbyeEditor: Abutton missing from a shirt, the fallen hem, broken needles, thread of a special color, a quilt in need of a border or backing, holiday crafts, fabric for school projects, costumes or a new blouse, notions, a sewing watchamacallit, you know one of those gadgets that does something, ... took you to a fabulous little shop on Interlake Boulevard in downtown Lake Placid known as Sew Biz. Avisit to the button jars took you back in time, bolts of fabric from gingham to novelty prints was like a beautiful masterpiece of art on the wall as you walked in the door. Sometimes, you were overwhelmed and just needed to stare, browse or step back and take it all in. Especially when new fabric arrived. Now that was a great day to be in the store. Then there were Nancy’s own fabric creations that never stayed on the shelves very long. But if you were lucky enough to get some yardage, they will always hold a special place in your heart. Your visit wasn’t complete without a fat quarter, much like leaving a grocery store without a candy bar, located next to the counter, you couldn’t resist, maybe one for you and one for a friend. Your calendar always had the dates marked for the store’s classes and big fabric sales. You were a sewing groupie standing in line outside the store not for concert tickets, but hoping to grab your favorite bolts of fabric and rush to the cutting tables, or showing up in your pajamas the day after Thanksgiving so you would qualify for a sewing gift, special pricing and of course the new holiday fabrics. Whether you were a repeat customer, one time shopper, or just a looker. Memories, there are many. So chances are you will come across someone who is willing to share a memorable moment, a funny story, show off their new quilt, or of the warm welcome and kindness received each time they entered the store, the new items they made in class, the advice they received on how to repair a favorite pillow, clothing item, etc. The stories to be told are endless. The laughter was contagious in the store from people of all different backgrounds and knowledge of the art of sewing. It was a place you could go and never feel unwanted, or embarrassed because you did not know what a notion was or how to seam two pieces of fabric together. So even though Sew Biz will no longer be a physical place to go, it will be present in the homes and hearts of many. Not only from Lake Placid, but surrounding cities from coast to coast and other states. For many snowbirds, it was one of their first stops after opening their Floridian home for the season. For quilting groups, it was the place to shop before heading home after a quilting convention in Sebring. Patience was required by all on those days, for the store was wall to wall with it's best customers – buyers of fabric soon to be turned into creative and colorful art. How sad to see it go, but many of us will all have a piece of Sew Biz in our home. Either as a decor, a creative piece of clothing, accessory, new button on a pair of pants, needles and thread waiting to be used or a machine that will continue to create fabric masterpieces. Sew Biz was home to employees and teachers who loved what they did, loved their jobs and loved people. It is a loss to the community for these reasons and many others, all of a personal nature by the individuals who frequented the store. Sew Biz will always be a part of the history of Lake Placid.

C harlie Taylor, the owner of Taylor BP, took this action on pumps at his stations so that consumers would know if an unauthorized persona ttempted to open the area of the pump adjacent to the credit card reader. T he strip will show Void Open if the reader has been opened. I t also requests that customers inform the attendant i f the tape shows this message. Earlier this year a signific ant number of Highlands County residents had their c redit/debit card numbers skimmed from local gas pumps at convenience stores. Once skimmers had the numbers, unauthorized chargesw ere made on these credit and debit card accounts. M ost of the loss claims in these incidents were covered by either the bank or thec redit card companies themselves. To date and to our knowledge, the Taylor BPstores are the only locations in Highlands County that have t aken this prevention measure. The Highlands County Sheriff's Office applauds thee fforts of Mr. Taylor and the Taylor BPgas/convenience s tores for taking the initiative to warn consumers of possible placement of skimming devices on gas pumps H CSO Public Information Officer Nell Hays wrote in a press release.

Owner Erik Martinez, a Boca Raton resident, has been working for over a year on his new establishment at 7327 U.S. 27 South. Martinez, whose full-time profession is in the real estate field, has been in the restaurant business on and off for several years. “I owned a bar up in Gainesville a few years back. I’ve been in restaurants on and off, but I wanted to change my direction more,” said Martinez. Martinez created the entire concept from the ground up he stated and is sure that his establishment will be a great addition to Sebring. “I choose Sebring because it lacks the fast, casual approach. I know that there is one Mexican place there up on the lake, but it’s more of a sit-down, more upscale dining. This isn’t really like that. Customers can get in get their food within 10 minutes and get out,” Martinez explained. According to Martinez, tacos, beers, and sports will be the focus. The menu items also include several traditional Mexican goodies like quesadillas and burritos, but Martinez took the time to make sure the menu items are just right and fresh as possible. Border Town Cantina is currently seeking front o f the house employees (managers, bartenders, runners) before it’s grand opening on Monday. For more information contact Martinez at (561) 503-7038. For Mexican lovers Border Town Cantina Fresh Mexican Grill will be a new twist on old favorites. Martinez invites Sebring residents to come and enjoy food and drinks in a new, exciting atmosphere. Border Town Cantina to open Tuesday If you’ve got a high school senior, your household is probably knee-deep in senior-year activities – and expenses. Not to elevate your stress level, but this is probably a good time for you and your kid to start investigating how you’re going to finance college next fall. Seriously. Loan application deadlines are right around the corner and you’ve got many decisions to make and documents to fill out. Your first step is start filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The FAFSA is required by virtually all colleges, universities and career schools for federal student aid, as well as for most aid from states and colleges. Although you can’t yet finalize 2011 incomerelated information, once you start the process you can log-in anytime to update your file. Get a FAFSAfrom your school’s guidance counselor or financial aid office, at www.fafsa.ed.gov, or by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID. The FAFSAfiling deadline for federal loans for the 2011-2012 school year isn’t until June 30, 2012, but many state and individual school deadlines fall months earlier. Many types of aid are available to help cover costs at four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, and trade, career or technical schools, including: • Hundreds of thousands of free scholarships are awarded each year. Visit www.finaid.org/scholarships for details. • Federal Pell Grants are needs-based grants given to low-income students to pursue post-secondary education. The maximum annual Pell Grant amount is $5,500. They need not be repaid. • Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants for up to $4,000 a year are awarded to undergraduates with exceptional financial need. • The Federal Work-Study Program provides part-time j obs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. • Direct Stafford Loans are low-interest federal loans that have no origination fee and come in two varieties: “Subsidized,” which are needs-based and the government pays the yearly interest while students are enrolled; “Unsubsidized,” which are not needs-based and students are responsible for interest that accrues while enrolled. • Low-interest Federal Perkins Loans are for students who demonstrate exceptional financial need. They are subsidized and have no origination or default fees. • Private education loans are offered by banks and other lenders to bridge the gap between government loans and actual education costs. They aren’t government-guaranteed or subsidized and typically carry higher interest rates, although you can borrow greater amounts. Details and rates vary widely. • Some colleges sponsor their own loans, often with lower interest rates than federal loans. Check each college’s aid materials to see if they are available. • Federal Direct PLUS loans (Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students) allow parents to borrow for their children’s college expenses. Interest rates are fixed (although higher than Stafford loans) and there is an origination fee. • Private parent loans are offered by banks and other lenders, usually at higher interest rates than PLUS loans. They may also have an origination fee. • Some colleges also offer their own loans to parents, usually at rates below PLUS loans. Check each college’s aid materials to see if they’re available. Check out www.federalstudentaid.ed.gov and www.finaid.org for complete explanations of the different types of grants/loans, calculators and many other tools.

Throughout the month, Curves of Avon Park,1011 U.S. 27 South (-4529963) and Curves of Sebring 901 US 27 North, Suite 58 (385-1070) are waiving the joining fee for new members who show proof of a mammogram within the past year or make a $25 donation to breast cancer research. According to statistics from the American Cancer Society (ACS), nearly 230,480 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2011, and another 57,650 will be diagnosed with carcinoma in situ (CIS), a non-invasive, early form of breast cancer. Breast cancer remains a leading cause of cancer death in women, second only to lung cancer. More than 39,500 women will die from the disease in 2011. One woman in every eight will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, each participating Curves center will focus on three important goals in supporting this annual campaign: 1. Helping women learn the facts about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. 2. Encouraging women to work out three times a week to help reduce their risk of developing breast cancer. 3. Participating in fund-raising efforts to support the research and outreach efforts of the ACS. Since only about 5-10 percent of breast cancers are hereditary, prevention can play a key role in a woman's risk management strategy. The ACS recommends making lifestyle choices such as eating right, getting regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight to help a woman significantly reduce her risk of developing breast cancer. “Curves’mission has always been to strengthen women,” said Curves Founder Diane Heavin. “Typically, women are caregivers, but when it comes to breast cancer, women need to understand how important it is to take care of themselves.Scheduling an annual doctor visit, performing a monthly breast self exam, eating a nutritious diet and making time for regular exercise are all things that a woman can do to stay strong and help reduce he r chances of developing this devastating disease.” Early detection is the next line o f defense, since about 93 percent o f women whose breast cancer is caught in its earliest stages will be healthy and disease-free five years after their diagnosis and treatment. Guidelines from the ACS encourage women age 40 and older to have a Clinical Breast Exam (CBE) performed by a health professional once a year, along with a mammogram. Women in their 20s and 30s should have a CBE at least every three years. “The good news is that the ACS says that death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, with larger decreases in women younger than 50,” said Heavin. “Everyone at our local Curves fitness clubs are proud of the role we play in helping to educate women about breas t cancer risk factors and the importance of maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly and making their own health a priority. “Our goal is to see breast cancer statistics continue to reflect the positive impact that education and awareness can have.” For more information, please visi t www.curves.com/.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comSebring head coach LaVaar Scott knows the tenacity his team is capable of, but is also wary of the mistakes it is sometimes prone to. Going into Fridays match-upw ith state power A merican Heritage in Miami-area Plantation, he knew the result hinged on which aspect of his team shone through. Tenacity won out, for the most part. T hough that wasnt quite enough to come away with a win, the 13-3 final score is evidence enough of the heart and potential of this team. In their four previous games of the season, three wins, the Patriots had averaged 30 points per game and had topped 40 twice against Clewiston a nd Martin County. The only loss, to fellow state power Jacksonville Bolles, American Heritage had been held to 17. And yet here the Blue Streak defense was stopp ing them at every turn during a scoreless first half. e had seen in film that they really hadnt been challenged physically and we knew we could, Scott said. We hit them like they havent been hit before. It stayed scoreless into the third and the defense was holding strong when, on third-and-11, a Patriotr eceiver got over the top a nd hauled in a long pass for the games first score. The Sebring offense then kicked into gear, marching down the field and getting to the Heritage two-yard line. But a penalty and a bad snap, some of those mental Football season is in full swing, and the 2011-12 hunting season is cranking up. Heck, in Zone A, theyre already into general gun season. But for the rest of us, Id like to cover the rules and regulations regarding two hunting seasons that are just around the corner: muzzleloading gun and the first phase of dove. Immediately following the c lose of crossbow season in each zone, the muzzleload-i ng gun season begins. Season dates run Nov. 19 Dec. 2 in Zone B, Oct. 22 N ov. 4 in Zone C and Dec. 3-9 in Zone D. During muzzleloading gun s eason, bows and crossbows a re also legal methods of taking game on private lands, in addition to muzzleloaders. But on wildlife management areas (WMAs only muzzleloaders may be used. The most common types of game to take during muzzleloader season are deera nd wild hog. Only bucks may be taken, and one antler must be at least 5 inches long above the hairline. The daily bag limit on antlered deer is two. You can hunt wild hogs year-round on private lands, and there are no bag or size limits. Its also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING They knew it was going to be a tough one coming in a match-up with district front-runner Winter Haven. Even before the season, head coach Vanessa Sinness had pointed out that the Blue Devils hadnt lost any main players from a year ago and looked to be the power of the new, four-team district. Things were made a bit tougher as Sinness used another new coaching tactic for this one, leaving it to assistants and jayvee coaches Terry Quarles and Mike Lee. Though it wasnt an intentional ploy, mind you, as Sinness was back at her alma mater, Valley City State University in North Dakota as the 1996 volleyball team she was a part of was being inducted into the schools hall of fame. But leaving the team in the hands of Quarles, former SFCC head coach, and Lee didnt seem to hurt too much as Sebring was hanging right in against the towering front line of Winter Haven to the tune of a 9-9 score in the first set. The Devils went on a run to broaden the gap to 15-9 and soon 18-11, but kills from Stephanie Struck and Meghan Lollis spurred a rally that closed it to 19-15. But Winter Haven scored the next two before a Kaley Walter kill, and finished it off soon enough for a 25-16 win. Walter then got the Streaks going with a second-setopening ace with a Lollis kill sparking a 3-1 lead. The Blue Devils ran off seven straight, but Sebring responded with a Struck kill and Sydnee Connelly ace to SPORTS B SE CTION Inside This Section S FCC Volleyball . . .3B HYF Football . . .4B Florida Prep Scores . . .4B News-Sun Sunday, October 2, 2011 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Dino Lower and the Lady Blue Streaks found the Blue Devils of Winter Haven a tall order to overcome Thursday night.

After averaging 209 as a team at Martin County last week, these boys are racking them up and knocking them down every day as they eye the District Championships and State in November. As the team worked together Friday in practice, freshman Thorston Przychocki was throwing one strike after another. After the front seven strikes in their fourth game, his father Paul said, Uhoh, if he gets a 300, Ill have to buy him that ball! Sure enough, using a new ball just drilled for upand-comer Brock Barnacle, oast, as his teammates call Przychocki, proceeded to coolly rip one rack after another until the screen read the coveted 300. Come out and watch oast and the team in practice after school each weekday, as they are led by USBC Silver Level Coach Rick Wiltse and Paul Przychocki, and for their upcoming home matches on Friday, Oct 14 against the formidable Martin County Tigers, and on Friday, Oct 21 against the Lake Wales Highlanders.

Too many turnovers, stupid penalties. The first half, especially, was real disappointing. The offense was moving the ball well all night long, but it was those penalties and turnovers that kept many of those drives from coming to full fruition. The defense, however, was going strong. For the second week in a row, the defense played great for us, Holden said. They were getting turnovers and gave us great field position. But while the drives often s hort-circuited, the Dragons got on the board with in the first on a 29-yard Nevada Weaver run eight minutes in. T hen, late in the first, Nick Swain swept into the backf ield and blocked a Griffin p unt, leading to a Vincente Barajas field goal that sent Lake Placid into the half up 10-0. The Dragons then roared out of the gate to open the second half, taking their first drive 53 yards on eight plays, capped off by an 11-yard A.J. Gayle run. And then in the fourth, it was Gayle again, charging through the line from five yards out to finish up a short drive, as well as finish the scoring.

Sebring stopped, not overwhelmed News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Desirae Burris goes up for a kill in Fridays match against Lake Sumter during the SFCC Tournament. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The Jekyll and Hyde nature of the South Florida Community College volleyball team continued Friday as the Lady Panthers hosted the SFCC Tournament. Starting out against Lake Sumter, the back and forth nature of the squad was encapsulated in the opening set. Down 17-10, the full capability of the team went on display as they would score 1 5 of the next 18 points to take a 25-20 win walking away. And just as it seemed the momentum was now fully rolling their way, the Hydes came out in a 25-14, secondset loss. The Jekylls returned, somewhat, as the team battled tooth-and-nail in the third set before succumbing 30-28. And the fourth set showed a bit of resistance too, but also resulted in a loss, 25-18. Stephanie De Hoyos lead the team with 25 kills and 17 digs and Caitlin Carlander had 43 assists and three service aces. But the inconsistency could also be seen in the teamsseven aces, and seven service errors, 50 kills and 28 hitting errors. The downward trend continued in the late afternoon match with Clearwater Christian, as the Panthers dropped the first two sets, 25-20 and 25-16. But then things started to happen. I made a substitution in the third set and brought Caitlin Tribit in and things started to turn around, head coach Kim Crawford said. Indeed they did. T he first two sets would see SFCC never seem too far behind, but never quite close enough. But in the third the battle seemed fully engaged. Down 4-2, the Panthers caught them at 5-5. Down 118, it was soon even again after a three-point run. And then, down 19-15, two De Hoyos and one Eryn Mahoney kill had South Florida up 24-22 before Shelby Flint tipped one over for the final score of the 2522 win. The fourth set saw the team even more engaged and on their game, rushing out to a 12-7 lead and not letting the margin get under four the rest of the way before closing out a 25-17 win. That was the best weve played this year, Crawford said. From a chemistry standpoint, working together and communicating, that was the best Ive seen them play And yet, just as it seemed the roll would carry them to a match win, it was Clearwater that stepped up and jumped out to a 4-0 lead. The Lady Panthers would show some resolve, closing to 7-6, but the long day of playing down and battling back made the last bit of theu phill climb a bit too much and saw a 15-10 loss finish their day. De Hoyos was again the kill leader, with 23 for the match, while Flint added 13 and Mahoney seven. Flint also lead the team with 16 digs, with De Hoyosa nd Tribit adding 13 each and Brittany Hill getting 12. Two more matches awaited the Panthers Saturday, for another chance at getting that chemistry clicking again, against Brevard and Indian River. Results were too late for press time, but see Wednesdays News-Sun for a recap. L ady Panthers stopped, see spark We saw that theyre not unbeatable. MIKELEE Sebringcoach turkeys during muzzleloading gun season. You may take only one per day, and theres a two-bird fall-season limit. But you cant hunt turkeys in Holmes County during the fall and winter. On WMAs, bag limits and antler/size restrictions can differ, so check the specifics of the area before you hunt. Legal shooting hours are a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident game over feed such as corn on private lands. No baiting is allowed on WMAs, however. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders firing single bullets must be at least .40-caliber. Guns firing two or more balls must be 20-gauge or larger. You may not use muzzleloaders that take smokeless powder, ones that can be loaded from the breech or those with self-contained cartridge ammunition capabilities during muzzleloading gun season. The first phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season begins Oct. 1 and ends Oct. 24 statewide. Shooting hours during this first phase are noon to sunset, and theres a 15-bird daily bag limit. The only firearm youre allowed to use for hunting doves is a shotgun, but you cant use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a three-shell capacity (magazine and chamber combined). You may hunt doves over an agricultural field, as long as the crop has been planted and manipulated under normal agricultural practices. However, its against the law to scatter agricultural products over an area for the purpose of baiting. Some things you cant do while dove hunting include using rifles, pistols or crossbows; shooting from a moving vehicle; and herding or driving doves with a vehicle. In addition to a Florida hunting license, youll need a $5 muzzleloading gun permit to hunt during muzzleloader season. To hunt deer, you need a $5 deer permit, and if youd like to take a fall turkey, youll need a $10 turkey permit ($125 for nonresidents If youre going to hunt doves, youll need a no-cost migratory bird permit, and if you hunt on a WMA, you also must have a management area permit, which costs $26.50. All are available at your local county tax collectors office; through license agents; by calling 888HUNT-FLORIDA; or by going online to www.fl.wildlifelicense.com So if youre going after that monster buck during the muzzleloading gun season or dove hunting with friends and family, I hope Ive helped explain some of Floridas rules and regulations.

The Eagles were taking on the Plant City Eagles. It was going to be a day of battle between two Eagle teams and the Highlands Eagles were looking to bring in some more Ws this week. T he first team to take the field was the Flag team, ages 5and 6-years old, lead by head coach Bob Ford. The HYFC flag team took the field after learning that the Polk County Eagles would have to forfeit, but that didnt deter them. They played very hard in the 6-on-6 scrimmage game. The offense was firing on all cylinders, with touchdowns by Bryant Johnson, William King, Ezera Jackson, Kaden DAmico, John Alexander and Fred Hankerson. The defense, lead by Johnny Deluca was holding their own as well, and held the PC Eagles down for a 3924 win. The flag team now turns their attention to theA uburndale Hounds and looks forward to another fun week of football. Next to take the field was t he Mighty Might team, ages 7, 8 and 9, lead by head c oach Willis McGuire. T he Eagles took the field with Plant City focused and determined after a loss last week. The defensive battle was on between these two teams. With a strong defensive team, Bailey Riggles, Treshawn Rowe and Robert Gotkiewicz, the Eagles kept Plant City in check. The Eagles offense rallied together with Alkeivon Hester running 45 yards to score a touchdown, taking the game into the fourth quarter with Plant City in the lead 7-6. Unfortunately, costly turnovers by the Eagles gave Plant City another opportunity to score a couple of more touchdowns giving the Eagles another devastating loss with a final score of 196. The Pee Wee team, ages 10 and 11 and lead by head coach Tim Hooks, were eager and ready to take the field after last weeks loss. The day started off with the Plant City offense scoring early in the first half to take the lead 7-0. The Eagles offense struggled in the first half, taking the game to halftime down by seven. In the second half, the defensive battle was on but the Eagles offense worked together as a team to get into the end zone, but was unable to convert the extra point resulting in a loss 7-6. Following the Pee Wee game, the Junior Varsity team, ages 12 and 13 and managed by head coach Cliff Howell, took the field with Plant City. The game got off to a great start with the Eagles offense driving down the field in their first possession of the g ame. The JVoffense was on the field for the majority of the first quarter with some costly p enalties thwarting their efforts. I n the first drive of the seco nd quarter, quarterback Sammy Smith was able to make his way to the end zone to score the first touchdown of the day. The dominating Eagles defense took the field, lead by Akem JnPierre, and quickly shut down the Plant City offense going into halftime with the lead 6-0. In the third quarter, the Eagles defense stood strong with key tackles made by Rafael Smith, Timothy Jordon, Trace Thompson and Jalen Williams. Plant City was able to find their way to the end zone to score a touchdown to tie the game, but the Eagles didnt allow them the extra point. With the game winding down, the defense on both teams stood strong. The teams would go into overtime in a Kansas City tie-breaker, with each team beginning on the 10-yard line. The Highlands Eagles won the toss and got the ball first. On third down, Smith was able to find some room and make his way into the end zone for a touchdown. With such a close game, they went to the air for the extra point and CJ Harris caught the pass in the end zone to put the Highlands Eagles up 14-6. Plant City then took the field with the determined Eagles defense. On third down, defensive end Akem JnPierre swooped right in and sacked the quarterback. Then on fourth down, defensive end Trace Primetime Thompson got into the backfield for another sack to secure the win and move the teams mark to 3-2. The last game of the day was the Varsity team, ages 1 3, 14 and 15, lead by head coach John Bishop. T he Eagles took the field with pride, focused and ready for some football after last weeks loss. T hey were lead by dominant offensive line play from E J JnPierre, Anibal Kulian, Geraldo Sanchez, Tyler L ynch and Kevin Minister. They dominated the line of scrimmage all day long. Cole Kilgo connected with Allen Williams for a 25-yard touchdown, which gave the eagles an early 6-0 lead. The Eagles second touchdown came when Malik Taylor ran in a reverse from 35 yards out. Tyler Edwards then nailed the kick to take the lead to 14-0. Kilgo also scored on a 15 yard run right up the middle. The extra point was then run in by Tremaine Hawthorne to take the lead to 21-0. The defense also had a dominant performance, allowing just seven points. The defense was lead by Anthony Oppold, Delton Hawthorne and Wyatt Kinslow, wrapping up the game taking another win for the day with a final score of 21-7. 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 game surely paid off with the results on the field. The Highlands Eagles will be on the road this week, traveling to Winter Haven to play the Auburndale Hounds on Saturday, Oct. 8.

That was one good quarter and thats not going to win a lot of games, he continued. Were making mistakes that we shouldnt be this far along in the season, so we as coaches have to do a better job. But we know we can get better The Dragons did major damage with the ground game as the tandem of Gayle, 160 yards, and Weaver, 135 yards, tore through the Gateway defense.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK –Stunning paintings of portraits, landscapes, and still life justly describe the collection of artwork by Shirley Callis Stone featured in the South Florida Community College Theatre for the Performing Arts, in the upper level gallery, Highlands Campus. The artwork will be on display for the public now through Jan. 15. The upper level gallery is designated as a community artist gallery and showcases exceptional artists from our surrounding area. Growing up on a farm in Michigan, Stone had few opportunities to become exposed to art, but she loved to draw. An older brother recognized her ability, gave her a book on drawing, and from that time on she knew she wanted to become an artist. Agraduate of Western Michigan University, Stone majored in Art and began her journey working as an artist and part time teacher for the Continuing Education Department of Kent State University, as well as other art organizations in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Over the years, Stone has been involved in an array of artist endeavors. She has developed and illustrated children’s stories, and designed and studied under renowned painters. She is involved with art in Highlands County, is a member of the Highlands Art League in Sebring, and has work featured in Studio B and the Yellow House Gallery and Studios. Stone has traveled and painted in Italy, and areas around the United States, capturing the beauty and colors of her subjects, which include not only portraits, but landscape and still life. According to Cathy Futral, SFCC professor, art, “I have always admired the traditional oil approach and the draftsmanship of Shirley Stone’s work. She is a superb artist, who captures the colors, lights and shadows so beautifully, especially in her portrait work.” When asked what she liked to focus on during painting, Stone replied, “I really love to paint anything, but I tend to lean towards painting people and still life images. Drawing and painting is a distinct pleasure for me and I hope what I draw or paint pleases others.” Her gallery exhibition showcases some of her oil on canvas paintings. The upper level gallery is open to the public before and after any theatre performance or by appointment with the art department by calling 784-7195. Beginning Oct. 5, the Museum of Florida Art and Culture will be open Wednesday through Friday, 12:30-4:30 p.m. for additional public viewings of the gallery.

By FRAZIER MOORE APTelevision WriterNEWYORK— On the broadcast they call it “AFew Minutes With Andy Rooney.” They might better have called it “AFew Choice Words From Andy Rooney.” Rooney, despite his decades as a “60 Minutes” fixture, is a writer, not a talking head. Words, not vamping for the camera, have been his stock-in-trade since his first “60 Minutes” essay in 1978, just as words were for more than 30 years before that. But on tonight’s edition of “60 Minutes,” Rooney will have a few last words. The broadcast will mark his final commentary in his longtime role as weekly pundit. CBS says it will be his 1097th for the program. Tick, tick, tick, tick .... News that he is stepping down was released abruptly earlier this week. Even so, it wasn’t much of a surprise. Rooney is 92 and surely recognizes this truth: Words may last forever, but not the person who crafts them. Rooney has been a champion of words on TVever since he joined CBS in 1949 as a writer for the redhot “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts.” Within a few years he was also writing for CBS News public-affairs shows such as “The Twentieth Century” and “Calendar.” AWorld War II veteran who reported for the military newspaper Stars and Stripes, he came from an ink-ondead-trees brand of journalism that he never renounced. (During his CBS career, he had a syndicated newspaper column and published 16 books.) So it was logical that he would join “60 Minutes” with its inception in 1968. After all, the legendary creator of “60 Minutes,” Don Hewitt, is well remembered for insisting that, even on the visual medium of TV, the words should come first and the pictures follow. Adecade later, Rooney was 59. At an age when many people might be pondering retirement, he took his seat before the camera to deliver his first “60 Minutes” essay. Beetle-browed and rumpled, he wasn’t telegenic by traditional standards. Nobody minded, or even noticed. Viewers listened to his words and he caught on. Exactly why he won and kept a following can be debated long after he’s gone. Right now, the nature of his appeal must surely be occupying CBS News honchos as they ponder how, or whether, to replace him. (CBS has made no announcement on that score.) But one reason for his appeal is clear: He tapped into experiences common to his audience. In his opinion pieces, he drew from a wellspring of everyday annoyances and absurdities, noting how the life we share often doesn’t add up. This provoked him, and his essays gave us license to be irked, too, as we tapped into our own inner fuddy-duddy. One Sunday, for example, Rooney focused on motionpicture credits. There are too many of them. They take too long. Who cares, anyway? Things were better when he was a kid, without all those names wasting everybody’s time. Another week, he tried to explain the flat tax by showing flat things — a pancake, a punctured tire. Then he threw up his hands: Aflat tax isn’t worth figuring out after all, it’s just an empty campaign promise. He raised to conscious level things on which we all could agree: How banks insist on having lofty-sounding names. He validated things in his own wry style that everybody knows and says: How air travel stinks. He took notably bold stands on certain major issues: He was one of television’s few voices to strongly oppose the war in Iraq when it began. There were easy targets, too: “There are a lot of knownothing boobs who don’t appreciate the modern art being put up in public places in all our cities,” he declared peevishly one week. “I know this is true, because I’m one of those know-nothing boobs.” Then, occasionally, he strayed into areas beyond his understanding. For example, he dismissed Kurt Cobain’s 1994 suicide as, in effect, a selfish act. What did Cobain know about suffering? The 27-year-old rock star hadn’t suffered through a war or the Depression! (The next week, he apologized on the air.) He could play rough. “One of my major shortcomings — I’m vindictive,” he pleasantly acknowledged in a 1998 interview with The Associated Press. “I don’t know why that is. Even in petty things in my life I tend to strike back. It’s a lot more pleasurable a sensation than feeling threatened.” “There’s no question I have a negative streak,” he summed up, “which has served me well.” Indeed. But if Rooney sometimes championed a get-off-my-lawn brand of crankiness, there was usually a twinkle in his eye and a “we’re-in-this-together” tone to his writing. And for Rooney, it all came down to the writing, the words: simple, succinct, sometimes pungent, sometimes funny, and cut to the chase. Then, tick, tick, tick, tick ... He will do it one more time as a weekly commentator tonight, completing a remarkable run. And in those few minutes, he will demonstrate one final piece of Rooney-worthy wisdom — that all the words in the world come down to just one: goodbye.

Sting, who turns 60 on Sunday, is hoping he will still be going strong at 85, too. “Hopefully the next 25 years will be the same if I have it,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said of his own success. “I couldn’t live without music. I’d rather play music or die.” Sting is celebrating 25 years as solo artist; in the late 1970s he debuted as the leader of The Police, scoring massive hits with songs like “Every Breath You Take” and “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic.” As a solo singer, he went on to sell multiple multiplatinum albums — and overall, he is the owner of 16 Grammy Awards. This week he released “Sting: 25 Years,” his 3disc greatest hits set. On Oct. 18, he will release “Sting: The Best of 25 Years,” which features 12 remastered tracks from his solo career. Sting says he has no plans to release a new album, though he says he is a writing a musical-play “based on my hometown in the north of England.” Sting: I want 25 more years of music Classified ads get results!

SOLOMON BANDA Associated PressHOLLY, Colo. — Eric Jensen surveys his dusty cantaloupe field and seems equally stunned and puzzled at the fate that has befallen his crop: row upon row of melons rotting on the vine. Jensen is the co-owner of the Colorado farm where health officials say a national listeria outbreak originated, making his withering fields the epicenter of a food scare that has sickened dozens of people from Wyoming to Maryland and caused 16 deaths. Jensen has no idea how his cantaloupes became infected, and neither do the Food and Drug Administration investigators who have intermittently been in this town of 800 people near the Kansas border since the outbreak started earlier this month. Regardless of how it happened, the situation has left the town and farm reeling and in fear. Jensen had to quit growing and shipping cantaloupes after the outbreak was discovered — a staggering blow to a region where cantaloupe has always been a proud local tradition. Until the listeria infections started showing up, Holly’s field workers would bring melons into town to share, just as they have for generations. And it wasn’t uncommon for Holly residents to stop by Jensen Farms to buy freshly picked cantaloupe. Now, not even the local grocery store has any of the fruit. No one in Holly has been sickened, but people are frightened by the prospect of contracting listeria. The bacteria can have an incubation period of a month or more, and it principally affects the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. “I ate that cantaloupe, and I gave some of it to my 97-year-old mother,”’said Wanda Watson, co-owner of the Tasty House Cafe. “I’m watching her real close. It’s scary because it could be up to two months before you get sick.” Sherri McGarry, a senior adviser in the FDA’s Office of Foods, said the agency is looking at the farm’s water supply and the possibility that animals wandered into Jensen Farms’fields, among other things, in trying to figure out how the cantaloupes became contaminated. Listeria bacteria grow in moist, muddy conditions and are often carried by animals. The water supply for farms in the Holly area comes from wells and irrigation ditches that tap the nearby Arkansas River. There’s no shortage of thoughts around town about the potential causes. “Well water? I doubt it. Ditch water? Well, there’s some probability, but it’s low,” said Jim Cline, a retired construction worker. “Animal intrusion? Well, OK, what kind of animal? Deer? Coons? Coyotes? What kind of animal wants to get into a melon field?” At Jensen Farms, workers have stopped picking cantaloupes because of a recall of its product. There’s no need to irrigate the crop anymore, and the melons are drying up in the rock-hard fields. As Eric Jensen surveyed his lost crop, workers ripped up plastic that’s laid down in rows to help the cantaloupe grow. He could not discuss the outbreak, citing a likely raft of pending litigation. “There are a lot of things I’d like to say right now, but now is not the time,” Jensen said. It’s the latest blow to Holly, a town that has seen its share of hard times. In late 2006, Holly was pummeled by a blizzard that cut off the town from the outside world so badly that helicopters had to drop feed to stranded cattle. Just as people were digging out of the blizzard, a tornado blasted through Holly, killing three people and destroying and damaging dozens of homes. The Sept. 10 recall of Jensen Farms’cantaloupes came toward the end of a harvesting season made difficult by a severe drought that has rendered swaths of southeast Colorado, Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma federal disaster areas. Residents talk about conditions so dry that some corn stalks have no ears of corn on them. Yields in whea t fields — usually between 40 to 50 bushels an acre — have dropped to about 20. “We just haven’t had any luck around here,” said Watson. Holly is about a 90-minute drive from the town of Rocky Ford, home to Colorado’s revered cantaloupe growing region. Cantaloupes from the Arkansas River Valley are prized for their sweetness and are such a big deal that farms like Jensen’s — 70 miles away — carry the brand name “Rocky Ford Cantaloupe.” The listeria scare has some residents wondering about the future fo r their Rocky Ford brand of cantaloupe — and cantaloupe farming in Colorado for that matter. They’re hopeful this outbreak eventually will fade from the public’s memory, like others involving spinach or ground meat contaminated by E. coli bacteria or salmonella. “You think beef recalls, you think spinach in California,” said Michael Daskam, who works in the local soil conservation office. “But heck, I was eating spinach and beef right after.” Listeria leaves Colorado town stunned and scared HEALTH I ate that cantaloupe, and I gave some of it to my 97-year-old mother. Im watching her real close. Its scary because it could be up to two months before you get sick.WANDAWATSON co-owner of Tasty House Cafe in Holly, Colo.

Associated PressNEWORLEANS — Nearly 400 animal and plant species in the southeastern U.S., from the Florida sandhill crane to the Texas trillium, are part of a national push by the Obama administration to settle whether hundreds of varieties are endangered or not. As part of a settlement with environmental groups, the administration has agreed to consider whether more than 700 freshwater species nationally deserve protection under the Endangered Species Act. But it won’t happen fast. Nationwide, another 251 species are already in line in the bureaucratic process of determining whether a life form is endangered. The 374 new entries have to go through a step before that first, to decide if they’ll be considered for the process. For the next five years, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will focus on whether the 251 species it’s currently studying, including the Louisiana pine snake and fluted kidneyshell, are endangered or threatened, said Tom MacKenzie, spokesman for the agency’s Southeast Region. Afew score might get bumped up faster — the groups that took the agency to court reserved the right to do so again to push for faster consideration of as many as 10 species a year out of the 374 Southeastern plants and animals, said Noah Greenwald of the Center for Biological Diversity, one of those groups. Comments may come from scientists, Indian tribes, and anyone else who might know something about a species on the list, which includes plants and animals in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Eleven of the 74 Florida animals now up for consideration around 2015 or so are already on that state’s lists for animals considered threatened or of “special concern,” but its Fish and Wildlife Commission is recommending that two of them be removed, said listed species coordinator Brad Gruver. The striped mud turtle and Eastern ribbon snake found in the lower Keys had been considered separate species from those found elsewhere, but review committees found them the same, he said. The reviewers recommended listing eight “species of special concern” as threatened when the lists are merged, and keeping the Florida sandhill crane listed as threatened, he said. “The changes don’t take place until we’ve developed a management plan for each and every one of those. We’re probably three years from getting all those management plans done,” he said. All four mammals on the new list — marsh rice rats found on Sanibel Island and Pine Island, Sherman’s shorttailed shrew and the insular cotton rat — are found only in Florida, according to the Center for Biological Diversity. The Sanibel Island marsh rat is among those currently considered “species of special concern” in Florida and recommended for listing as threatened, Gruver said. “We don’t have the Pine Island rice rat listed. We consider Sanibel Island rice rat a unique species of rice rat. We don’t recognize Pine Island. And neither may they, once they go through it,” he said. They’re among 63 species found only in Florida and 171 found only in a single state, according to an Associated Press analysis of a spreadsheet provided by the Center for Biological Diversity. Florida was named as home to a total of 115 species, behind only Alabama, with 119 total and 25 apparently unique to that state. The spreadsheet showed 109 in Georgia, 13 of them unique. “Florida tends to have unique species,” said Greenwald. And, he said, “as far as freshwater diversity, Alabama is pretty much the richest state in the country.” Gruver said he hadn’t looked for unique species, but the number didn’t surprise him. As sea levels fell over the ages, he said, Florida itself evolved from a chain of islands or very narrow peninsula into the current wide peninsula. Each island might have its own animals. “There’s scrub up and down the middle of the peninsula. Those areas used to be the tops of islands when there was a lot of water around them,” he said.

I’m not good at it and I always have plenty of other things that I consider higher on my priority list than trying to hit a little ball with a club. On the other hand, my husband enjoys the game and has, in the past, asked me to accompany him to the course. But unless there is a windmill or a dinosaur with a mouth that opens and closes in anticipation of my putt putt shot, I generally decline his offer. However, my husband, who knows me very well, will tempt me by saying, “you might get to see some fox squirrels.” And then I’m hooked; the opportunity to see these playful, furry creatures is just too good to pass up. Fox squirrels are often seen on golf courses because they like the wide open spaces. But they do need some trees, so they prefer the greens that have oaks and pines on them. These squirrels are unique because they are the largest squirrel in the western hemisphere. They are about twice the size of a gray squirrel and are highly variable in color.They generally measure from 17-28 inches in body length and their tails can be a long as 13 inches. A normal weight for the critter is from about 1-2 pounds.Their coats can be anywhere from all black to a white-tan color. Fox squirrels (Sciurus niger) are named for their fox-like tail. Sometimes they are referred to as stumpeared squirrel, raccoon squirrel or monkey-faced squirrel. These seemingly happy, playful creatures are often seen chasing each other up and down trees and across clearings. They are big talkers and their vocabulary includes clucking, chucking, whining and screaming. While playing, they often make quite a bit of noise with their clucking and chucking sounds. They will warn other nearby squirrels about danger with a distress scream. And when mating, they produce highpitched whines. Although they are good climbers, these squirrels spend more time on the ground than the average squirrel.They are active in the daytime and are not territorial, although they do travel quite a bit.Depending on the season, they construct different types of homes. In the summer they build a platform of sticks high in the branches of a tree. These homes are termed “dreys.” In the winter, the will utilize a hole in a hollowed out tree trunk. Fox squirrels are as hospitable as they are cute, and it is not uncommon to find that they share their home with someone else, especially when breeding. They have two breeding seasons, one in summer and one in winter. When the babies are born, they are completely blind, bald and helpless. They become independent at about three months and mature at one year.Most of the young never reach adulthood in the wild and die before reaching maturity. If they do survive, the average life span is about 12 years for females and 8 years for males. They depend on seeds from trees for their food, mainly longleaf pine and turkey oak. However, they will munch on whatever is available. They will consume fungi, buds, fruits, grain, insects, bird’s eggs, lizards and even small snakes. From May to October, they will cut green longleaf pine cones and strip off the bracts to get at the seeds. As with most squirrels, they are hoarders and they bury their treasures in different locations. The fox squirrel is equipped with sharp claws, flexible forearms, good abdominal muscles, excellent vision and excellent sense of smell and hearing. They use scent to communicate with other of their species and they are equipped with vibrissae, which are thick hairs that are used as touch receptors to sense the surrounding environment.These devices are located above and below their eyes, on their chin and nose and on each forearm. They are agile jumpers and can easily span 15 feet in horizontal leaps. They have been seen free-falling a distance of 20 feet or more to a soft landing on a limb or tree trunk. The Sherman’s Fox Squirrel (Sciurus niger shermanii), which is the species we see locally, lives in a narrow range from the mid panhandle north of Tampa south to Lake Okeechobee.This animal is currently considered threatened. Unlike the common gray squirrel, the fox squirrel is a bit more picky about its environment. These creatures depend on seeds from the rare longleaf pine and turkey oak trees. These trees are becoming more and more scarce as the forests that they live in are being destroyed. Additionally, the fox squirrel depends on other animals, such as the Ivory Billed Woodpecker, which is very close to extinction, for their homes. As with all nature, when one species is affected, many others are also challenged by the change in the natural cycle. It is important to look at the big picture and realize that we can’t protect a species if we don’t protect its home. Fox squirrels are mobile animals and need a lot of space; they depend on longleaf pine and turkey oaks. If the forest goes down, the fox squirrel will follow. In the near future, I hope to be able to tag along with my husband to the golf course and bring my son so that he can enjoy the delightful sight of this playful, furry creature. I hope he will be able to share the same sight with his children some day.

The largest contest of its kind in the country, the Being an American Essay Contest explores the Founding principles outlined in the Constitution. The contest is administered by the Bill of Rights Institute, a non-profit educational organization in the Washington, D.C. area devoted to educating young people about the Constitution and Founding principles. The 2011-2012 contest is sponsored by the History Channel. “This contest is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to think about the important Founding principles communicated in our Constitution,” said Dr. Jason Ross, Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs. “This context is vital to helping students see their Founding principles as a meaningful part of the American experiment of self-government.” Specifically, students are asked to share their thoughts on the Constitution by answering the following question: “How does the Constitution establish and maintain a culture of liberty?” The top three student winners from each of the five geographical regions will be awarded cash prizes of $1,000 (first place), $500 (second), and $250 (third). Teacher sponsors for each student winner will also receive a cash prize of $100. “The contest not only honors and awards sponsoring teachers, but also equips them with free lesson plans and other supplemental materials that meet state and national academic standards so they can easily incorporate the essay contest into their classrooms. The Contest is really a tribute to the excellent work teachers do in the important task of civic education,” said Ross. More than 80,000 students have participated in the essay contest since it began in 2006. “We are pleased to support the Bill o f Rights Institute’s Being an American Essay Contest,” said Dr. Libby O'Connell, SVP, Corporate Outreach and Chief Historian, History Channel. “The contest encourages students to think critically and truly makes the past relevant in their lives today.” Further information, including submission criteria, lesson plans and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and the Founding principles are available at www.BillofRightsInstitute.org/Contest/.

Page 12BNews-SunSunday, October 2, 2011www.newssun.com CITY OF AVON PARK; 11.25"; 10.5"; Black; octoberfest 2011; 0 0 0 1 2 1 5 2 By PHILIPELLIOTT Associated PressORLANDO — Listen to Republican voters and you’re likely to hear a reluctance to embrace Mitt Romney’s White House bid. At least at first. The same voters just as readily acknowledge that he might be the Republicans’ best chance to defeat President Barack Obama. And that may explain why the former Massachusetts governor isn’t sweating even as the buzz revolves around others. “I’ll probably wind up with Romney because, more than anything, what I want to do is to defeat Obama,” says Doyle Thomas, a 70year-old retired attorney from rural Cross City. Not that he’ll be happy about having to vote for the former Massachusetts governor. “You can’t tell me that Romney is a conservative and was able to be elected in Massachusetts,” Thomas adds, shaking his head. “If he were a conservative, there’s no way he could have won.” Interviews with more than two dozen Republicans who met here recently to hear the candidates speak at a conservative forum underscored the challenge Romney has faced since he entered the race as the GOPfront-runner this spring: People just aren’t excited about his candidacy. And six months later, they’re still not. That’s reflected in Herman Cain popping up as Florida activists’favored choice in a test vote last weekend. And the furious speculation surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political aspirations. And the great expectations for Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s candidacy, which quickly gave way to a measure of disappointment after voters learned that parts of his record deviated from conservative orthodoxy. Still, many Republicans interviewed here also said they were willing to vote for Romney, whom they see as the strongest to go up against Obama, and set aside their concerns: doubts about his authenticity, holes in his conservative credentials, anger over the health care law he signed in Massachusetts that mandated coverage and skepticism of his Mormon faith. “Romney seems like a nice guy,” said Tom Trombly, a database administrator in his 40s who volunteered on Ross Perot’s 1992 presidential bid. “But he sounds like a practiced politician. Alot of the answers are so canned.” For now, Trombly’s backing Herman Cain but acknowledges he wants a candidate who can beat Obama. He’s open to supporting Romney. And that’s what Romney’s counting on. Four years after losing the 2008 nomination, Romney has adopted a slow-andsteady approach to his presidential bid, refusing to react to every campaign development in hopes of drawing headlines. Instead, he’s working to convince voters that his economic experience makes him best suited to unseat Obama. His biography aligns with what voters say they want: He spent the bulk of his career in private business; he’s friendly with establishment Republicans; he’s a former governor; he can raise money and he relishes attacking Obama. “I’m saying, ‘Look, I’m the guy at the time that’s needed. And if you guys agree, terrific. If you don’t, that’s your right, too,”’ Romney said this week. Not everyone, though, likes what they’re seeing. In Cedar Rapids, Iowa, a woman recently asked Rep. Michele Bachmann what conservatives can do so “we don’t have to settle for a Mitt Romney.” In what has become her campaign’s rallying cry, the Minnesota lawmaker told her: “Don’t settle this time.” That feisty message helped Bachmann quickly gain ground early in her presidential bid as she became the Romney alternative. For a few weeks. Then Perry entered the race and stole her momentum. The reluctance to embrace Romney fuels the drumbeat for Christie, as it did earlier this year for Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. Both ultimately decided against runs. Even Donald Trump, the real estate mogul and reality TVshow celebrity, had his moment in the political spotlight. All of it represented a hunger for anyone but Romney. Consider this exchange in a hallway of the Orlando convention center as candidates delivered speeches inside the cavernous meeting space. “Romney can’t quite go the distance,” said Don Caquela, a 70-year-old retiree and Air Force veteran from Spring Hill, Fla. “He’s a little too moderate,” interrupts his wife, JuDee, a retired defense department employee. “We’re conservatives, and Romney is not.” What in Romney’s record leaves her queasy? “I can’t warm up to Romney,” she said. “I can’t put my finger on it. But there’s something,” The couple’s ideal candidate: Christie. The New Jersey governo r, who’s in his freshman term, insists he’s not running. He has done nothing to lay the groundwork for a presidential bid. And deadlines to g et on ballots are fast approaching. Yet, an appearance at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., raised hopes among some GOPactivists and donors that he’d change his mind. Romney shrugs off the frenzy as the latest example of a GOPflavor of the month and presses ahead with his steady strategy. “I could get a quick bump in the polls by saying some outrageous and incendiary things,” he told MSNBC this week. “You just express what you believe, talk about the issues you care about. Hopefully, people will come to you in the final analysis.” GOP activists walking „ not running „ to Romney MCT Mitt Romney is slowly winning over Republican voters, but more because they dont like the other candidates than because of any affection for the former Massachusetts governor.

DearAbby: My mother passed away recently. My sister, who lives in another state, flew in with her 4year-old daughter, “Nikki,” to attend Mom’s wake. When the wake ended, Nikki began to place stickers on Mom’s hands and one on her face. The stickers had been given to her by another guest before the service started. When my 18-yearold daughter saw what her cousin had done, she removed them, and Nikki threw a tantrum and refused to leave the casket. My sister spoke quietly to her, trying to get the child to leave, then allowed her to put at least two more stickers on my mother’s hand. Finally, I gently picked Nikki up and took her away from the casket. My father is a mildmannered man and, although he frowned in disapproval, he said nothing. This has caused a huge rift between my sister and me. I feel a 4-year-old is too young to attend a wake. Nikki should not have been allowed to put stickers on my mother. My sister says I “undermined” her parenting and had no right to intervene. What are your thoughts? – Saddened in New Jersey DearSaddened: If one defines parenting as teaching a child appropriate behavior, your sister wasn’t parenting at all. Although the child was well-intentioned, unless the stickers said “Return to Sender,” they had no place at the funeral. My condolences to your family. DearAbby: I’m a 32year-old single female. I have a child and am currently in a relationship with “Ty,” who has two children of his own from a divorce. This is a very difficult situation for me. I love Ty, but there’s so much drama relating to his ex-wife and dealing with the post-divorce behavior problems of his kids, I sometimes don’t know how much more I can handle. The ex constantly throws herself in my face, trying to be friends. And the shuffling of his kids from our house to hers creates issues. I need advice on what to do. I’m unhappy, and it is getting worse. How can I improve the situation before I just give up? – Overwhelmed in Iowa DearOverwhelmed: Before giving up, let me remind you that as a 32year-old single mother, you will be encountering more and more men with “baggage – so you might as well learn to cope with it now. If you’re going to have a future with Ty, it is in your best interest to become a “friend” of his ex-wife. Should you marry him, a cordial and cooperative relationship will be better for everyone. Look at it this way: Because Ty’s children are acting out – which is to be expected – the most effective way to deal with it is to form a united front. DearAbby: I recently started dating a wonderful man, but there’s one problem: On several of our dates he was dressed like he was staying home to watch TV– wearing dirty pajama-type shorts, ripped T-shirts, stuff I’d barely wear even if I were home sick. I have gently tried to suggest he wear something else, but he has no concerns about his appearance. Any ideas? – Baffled in Baltimore DearBaffled: The wonderful man you are seeing is either eccentric or a slob. If you have “gently” tried to suggest that he make himself look more presentable when you go out and have gotten nowhere, you have two choices: Accept him just as he is, or look further for male companionship.

In the admitting of it, came the opportunity to find a solution. Though we had prayed for God’s leading before building our house, I question whether we observed his warnings. Instead, we had listened to the banking advice we’d been given and forged ahead with no financial wiggle room. A huge wave of skyrocketing property taxes almost capsized our boat. We had sailed into a storm of our own making. We’ve learned a lot since then. First, it’s important to pray, seek and listen to the Lord before we listen to the advice of others – even experts. By praying, we are opening our minds and hearts to God’s voice; clarifying our thought process and decision making abilities and waiting on God to lead – not feeling driven to push ahead. We had let our feelings press us into taking an open door that needed greater investigating. It reminds me of how the ship the Apostle Paul was on pushed out to sea even against his advice. But the centurion assigned to bring Paul to Italy listened to the helmsman and owner of the ship (the experts) rather than Paul, who lived by God’s voice. Even though they lost cargo and ship in the process, God spared their lives as seen in Acts 27: 22, NKJV, where Paul declares, “And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only the ship.” God wastes nothing. He didn’t with Paul and his shipmates; and, he didn’t for our family. Though our “ship” could have been lost, God was gracious and allowed us to sell it, get out of debt and relocate to Sebring. In these situations, we need to confess our own part as we respond to our difficulties; confront the problem; and claim God’s promise to never leave us or forsake us. Even if the “ship” that’s lost is a house, car, money or other possession, we will make it because God is with us. Doubt is an insidious despair maker … creeping in and causing harm. So, a good rule of thumb is to doubt our doubts and cling to and believe our beliefs. For God is able to take our blunders or situations beyond our control and bring good from them.

Ovarian cancer has the highest mortality rate of all female reproductive cancers, partly because of a lack of early symptoms and an effective screening test. So it’s often diagnosed at advanced stages when the cancer has spread beyond the ovaries. In honor of Ovarian Cancer Awareness month (September), here are some misconceptions and truths about ovarian cancer that could save your life: MYTH: The Pap test can diagnose ovarian cancer. FACT: APap smear is used to diagnose cancer of the cervix (the opening of the uterus), but not other cancers of the female reproductive tract. MYTH: Ovarian cancer has no symptoms. FACT: Symptoms are not specific and often mimic other diseases, but they include pelvic or abdominal pain or discomfort, persistent gas, nausea and indigestion, frequency or urgency of urination in the absence of an infection, unexplained weight gain or loss, pelvic or abdominal swelling, bloating and feelings of fullness, ongoing unusual fatigue and unexplained changes in bowel habits. MYTH: Ovarian cysts and ovarian cancer are the same thing. FACT: Most ovarian cysts are not cancerous (or benign). Cysts may be found on the surface of an ovary or inside it, and contains fluid. Most cysts go away with time. MYTH: There are no diagnostic tests that can be used to detect ovarian cancer.FACT:Even though no reliable screening test exists, annual vaginal exams to feel for abnormal swelling and tenderness, transvaginal sonography and a blood test to determine the level of a tumor marker called CA-125 are all used to help determine the need for a CT scan, X-rays and tissue samples from the ovaries. MYTH: There are no known risk factors for ovarian cancer. FACT: Risk factors include personal or family history of breast, ovarian, endometrial, prostate or colorectal cancer; increasing age, unexplained infertility; no pregnancies or very late pregnancy; no history of oral contraceptive use; and taking high-dose estrogen without progesterone. MYTH: Ovarian cancer does not run in my family so I can't get it. FACT: All women are at risk for ovarian cancer. Only about 10 percent of cases are hereditary. MYTH: Taking birth control pills increases your risk of getting ovarian cancer. FACT: Studies show taking the pill over a number of years actually decreases a woman’s risk of getting ovarian cancer. Other things that may reduce risk: having one or more children, particularly if the first is born before age 25, and breast feeding; as well as tubal ligation and hysterectomy. MYTH:Ovarian cancer has no cure. FACT: If ovarian cancer is detected early and treated properly, the five-year survival or cure rate is 90 percent. However, only about one in four cases are diagnosed before the cancer has spread, and late diagnosis has a significantly lower survival rate of only about 29 percent.WHAT IS OVARIAN CANCER?The National Cancer Institute gives this definition: “Cancer that forms in tissues of the ovary (one of a pair of female reproductive glands in which the ova, or eggs, are formed). Most ovarian cancers are either ovarian epithelial carcinomas (cancer that begins in the cells on the surface of the ovary) or malignant germ cell tumors (cancer that begins in egg cells).” TYPES OF OVARIAN CANCER There are more than 30 types of ovarian cancer, according to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. The ovarian cancers are classified according to the type of cell from which they start. Cancerous tumors can start from three common cell types: Surface Epithelium— cells covering the lining o f the ovaries Germ Cells— cells that are destined to form eggs Stromal Cells— cells that release hormones and connect the different structures of the ovariesSTAGES OF OVARIAN CANCERAccording to the National Cancer Institute, these are the stages of ovarian cancer. The earlier in the stages the diagnosis comes, the greater the chances for survival. Stage I:Cancer cells are found in one or both ovaries. Cancer cells may be found on the surface of the ovaries or in fluid collected from the abdomen. Stage II:Cancer cells have spread from one or both ovaries to other tissues in the pelvis. Cancer cells are found on the fallopian tubes, the uterus or other tissues in the pelvis. Cancer cells may be found in fluid collected from the abdomen. Stage III:Cancer cells have spread to tissues outside the pelvis or to the regional lymph nodes. Cancer cells may be found on the outside of the liver. Stage IV:Cancer cells have spread to tissues outside the abdomen and pelvis. Cancer cells may be found inside the liver, lungs or other organs.TREATMENT FOR OVARIAN CANCERThere are three main treatment types for ovarian cancer, according to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition: 1. Surgery:Removing the cancerous growth through surgery is both the most common method of diagnosis and the most common treatment. Surgery is usually performed by a gynecologic oncologist. 2. Chemotherapy:Chemotherapy is the treatment of cancer using chemicals that travel through the bloodstream to destroy cancer cells or stop them from growing both in and outside the ovaries. Chemotherapy is used in the majority of cases as a follow-up therapy to surgery. 3. Radiation Therapy:Radiation therapy uses highenergy X-rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors (only rarely used in the treatment of ovarian cancer in the United States).TERMS TO KNOW Benign:Noncancerous. Biopsy:Asurgery performed to remove tissue for examination in order to determine whether cancer is present. CA-125:Ablood protein that can be measured and is an important tumor marker in ovarian cancer. Chemotherapy:The treatment of cancer by chemicals (drugs) designed to destroy cancer cells or stop them from growing. Cyst:Afluid-filled sac. Hysterectomy:Surgical removal of the uterus. Malignant:Aterm used to describe a cancerous tumor. Metastasis:The spread of cancer from one part of the body to another. Oncologist:Aphysician who specializes in cancer therapy and handles general medical problems that arise during the disease. Staging:The stages that describe how far a cancer has progressed, based on the size of the primary tumor and on whether and where it has spread. Tumor:Alump, mass or swelling. Atumor can be either benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous).RESOURCES National Cancer Institute: www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/types/ovarian National Ovarian Cancer Coalition:www.ovarian.org Ovarian Cancer National Alliance:www.ovariancancer.org Ovarian Cancer Research Fund:www.ocrf.org American Cancer Society:www.cancer.org/cancer/ovariancancer/SOURCES: THE NATIONALOVARIAN CANCER COALITION; NATIONALCANCER INSTITUTEBYTHE NUMBERS 1 in 72: Number of women who will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their lifetime 92 percent: Chance of surviving 5 years or more if diagnosed in the earliest stages 27 percent: Chance of surviving 5 years of more if diagnosed in the latest stages 19 percent : Percentage of cases diagnosed in the earliest stages63:Median age for diagnosis $4.4 billion: Estimated amount spent each year in the U.S. on ovarian cancer treatmentOVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS MONTHSeptember is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
