Scores are early for the two grades because students took the test online,saving time. The cutoff score for these tests was lowered from a 4.0 to a 3.0,as was done earlier for the writing portion of the test. This is because student scores tumbled after the second generation FCAT was made more difficult,and students had to get more questions correct to stay on grade level. The state board of education,shocked to see drops of as much as 60 percent, ordered the score marking grade level work lowered to that used in 2010. This means student scores will show improvement over last year when the more difficult test was introduced and the cut off score was 3.5. Lake Placid 10th graders, for example,went from the 35th percentile to the 51st; at Avon Park the 10th-graders went from the 23rd percentile to the 36th; and Sebring ninth-graders went from the 42nd percentile to the 50th. These scores,however,are not useful as a true measurement of annual yearly growth because of the tinkering and adjustments. Its difficult to play by the rules,when you dont know what they are,said Becky Fleck,assistant superintendent for curriculum,as she briefed the school board. What are the expectations? They arent well spelled out. The District as a whole lags behind the state average ninth-grade reading is 45 percent versus 52 percent; 10th-grade reading 44 percent versus 50 percent. County fourth-graders bested the state average,29 percent to 27 percent.

It is important for us to take time to honor and recognize both,said Deborah Harley,executive director at Cornerstone Hospice for Highlands County. When we first started entertaining the idea of putting together an event that did just that,Michelle Jackson of Lake Placid Health Care not only though it was a great idea,she wanted to be a major part of putting things in motion,said Cornerstone Hospice clinical liaison Autumn Egan. From there, the First Presbyterian Church of Lake Placid offered that we could use their fellowship hall,the Lake Placid Morning Rotary club offered to sponsor the refreshments for the event and Ridge Florist in Sebring has offered to donate flowers and candles. This is exciting,said Kristin Koetje of Alliant Human Services,who has been a huge force in shaping the event and was even able to bring in Highlands Countys own Adam Martin, an Iraq war veteran and instructor for South Florida Community College,to perform some of his guitar music for the audience during the program as well as the reception. This event has been put together with a lot of thought and enthusiasm. My one goal is that through this event we will be able to express to our veteran community and their families how much we appreciate them and the sacrifices they have made so we may enjoy the liberties we have, Egan said. For more information on this event,please call 863242-6462. Celebration of Life in LP to recognize military and families Courtesy photo All-Star Car Sales in Sebring made a lot of special athletes smile on Monday when co-owner Scott Albritton (center) presented a check for $2,000 from their recent car sale promotion. AllStar donated $100 for every car sold during a five-day sale. Athletes (from left) Angie Luft, Sharon Carpenter, Ralph Meyers and Eva Monk were on hand to collect the check for the organization. This will benefit more than 250 athletes with disabilities in Highlands County who participate in 12 different sports and six recreational activities throughout the year. All-Star donates to Special Stars Music is the language of the heart,a universal language that speaks to all p eople,going places where words alone will not penetrate. It is also the language of the mind. There is a song that most of us know, and Im certain that you have heard or s ang it in your place of worship called I Surrender All,written by Rev. Judson Wheeler Van DeVenter. Not only is the song completely beautiful, but also Van DeVenter was a personal f riend of George E. Sebring and this song in particular was written in the home of George Sebring as Van DeVenter was conducting a meeting. Born in 1855 on a farm in Monroe C ounty,Mich.,Van DeVenter grew up interested in art and music. He became a Christian at the age of 17. After graduating from college,Van DeVenter became an art teacher and then supervisor of art for the high school in Sharon, Penn. In 1885,he toured Europe,visiting art galleries and museums and studied painting. He was also a musician,having studied in numerous singing schools. Van DeVenter was heavily involved in his local Methodist Episcopal church,where he sang in the choir. He found himself especially fulfilled when participating in evangelistic rallies and revivals. Friends encouraged him to resign from the school system to enter full-time music evangelism and for five years he struggled with that decision. Finally,when in prayer,he said Lord,if you want me to give my full time to thy work,Ill do it; I surrender all the thee.For the next several years, he traveled extensively through the United States,England and Scotland, assisting in evangelic work,leading the singing for evangelists. While Engaged in meetings in East Famous hymn was written in Sebring Centennial Notebook By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING In a few short days,Tim Elder will join a group of his fellow f irst responders and participate in an honorable event that will take place across the state of Florida. Elder,Sebring Forest Area Supervisor for the state Department of Forestry,is one of many first responders that will bike across the state during the Brotherhood Ride. The event takes place each year in memory of fallen first responders all over the state. This years ride will honor 10 fallen heroes eight law enforcement officers and two forestry f irefighters that died in 2011. Elder will ride in memory of state firefighters Brett Fulton and Josh Burch. I didnt really know either of the guys that passed but Im pretty sure we passed each other in a training some where along the way,Elder said. Knowing his fallen brothers doesnt matter to Elder in any case. Elder wants to participate to help the community remember these two and the others. The Brotherhood Ride does more than keep the memory of public safety officials alive,it also serve as a major fundraiser. Almost all of the money raised goes to the families, Elder said. An overall goal of $500 is set by the organizers of the ride and Elder has already gone above and beyond in his fundraising efforts. Many local organizations and individuals have contributed to Elders,ride including the West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department and the firefightersunion. Each of the 30 riders are currently active firefighters, EMS or law enforcement, each riding in honor of one of their fallen brethren. The first day we will go just over 100 miles,the other days we will average 70 miles. We will stop at each of the stations that the f allen guys worked at along the way,said Elder. The riders will be lodging at local Elks Lodges and various other agencies along the route,according to Elder. We wont be in any hotels; well be sleeping on their floors,Elder said. The riders fully fund their trip,supporting themselves throughout the eight days and 550 miles. Ive ridden before,but nothing this long. The mileage on one day isnt really a worry for me but o ver time and that many days in the Florida heat will of course start to wear on you. But its exciting and lm looking forward to it, said Elder. The Brotherhood Ride will begin Sunday,June 3, when the 20 cyclists will travel from Naples to Miami. Each day the group will travel from city to city before ending their eightday trip in St. Petersburg on June 10. On June 9,Elder will get to visit the cemetery in Brooksville where Burch and Fulton are memorialized.

C M Y K When a lake drops below minimum levels,there is more to be concerned about than just docks being out of the water. The environment and ecological balances are affected dramatically, which can affect the overall quality of life of everyone in the county. Bird nesting,fish levels and plant life are all altered along with the recreational use and aesthetic view. The area lakes are the keystone in Highlands Countys economic engine and our quality of life. Unless we wish to have a county full of parking lots, every effort should be taken to protect the lakes,not just manage them. Especially now that Lake Jackson has dropped below historical minimum levels. Lake Jackson is primarily a rainfall fed lake,but removal of water seepage, even if considered insignificant in the larger view,will help maintain higher lake levels. Thats a scientific fact. Everyone lives in a watershed. Taking a few simple steps towards conservation,like low usage shower heads,planting water friendly plants and controlling the amount of lawn watering,all helps conserve water and should be the forefront thoughts of every Floridian on a daily basis. Remember that what each of us do in and around our own homes and businesses can make a larger impact on the lakes. Make water conservation a habit. It should also be a priority of every local government. Making water conservation a priori ty is quickly becoming a necessity in Highlands County and if the current weather and usage trends continue, more drastic solutions will have to be taken. We would argue that filling in t he manmade Lake Josephine canal can be undone at a later date and could be a viable option to help maintain the water levels in Lake Jackson and Little Lake Jackson. It should be considered more closely,despite the political ramifications. We all have to pitch in and conserve where we can as the historical drought continues,and in the area of water conservation,we have to take a personal point of view before we can make a significant impact on a regional problem. But it wouldnt hurt to pray for rain.

Having been on t hat side of the blackboard, I respect what these men a nd women have to go through. Teaching is a tough job. It was tough when I was involved with it and I didn t have to compete with cell phones and MP3 playe rs. How teachers manage to keep their students attention in this day and a ge is a marvel to me. I think that most teachers a re hard-working and truly love what they do. They spend hours of their own t ime and not a little of their own money to provide the best for their students. They are to be commended. But once in a while,you g et a glimpse at a lessthan-excellent representative of the profession. This occurred this week,thanks to a YouTube video that w ent viral. The video shows,for the m ost part,a classroom ceiling. That isnt whats i mportant. Whats important is what you hear on this video. According to several news reports,including one f rom the Salisbury Posts website,a student recorded an altercation between a fellow student at North Rowan High School and h is social studies teacher. The teacher is heard on the video yelling at the student (whom news reports have identified as Hunter Rogers) for asking a question critical of President Obama. Apparently in her mind, it is a crime to raise any questions about the president of the United States. She claimed that people were arrested for saying negative things about President Bush. On the recording,Rogers pointed out that we are allowed to criticize the President. The teacher insisted this is not the case. She said that as a teacher she couldnt permit someone to say negative things about a president of the United States. It wasnt clear whether she permitted negative things to be said regarding President Bush while he was in office. As I type this,the teacher has been placed on paid suspension. Rogers was withdrawn from the school by his parents and plans to get his GED from a local community college. The video is easy to find on YouTube if you type in teacher yells at student Obama.Some of the websites citing the story also have the video available. To me,this is a good thing. One can hear for themselves whats going on. I listened to the almost 10 minute video twice. Here are my thoughts on what I heard. First off,it seems to me that the teacher didnt have control of her classroom. People seemed to be chatting during class time and to be absolutely fair there appeared to be some disrespect from the students. Rogers mutters at one point that hell call his father when the teacher tells him he cant say whatever he w ants. As a teacher,I wouldnt be happy with a student who did that. But then again,as a teacher I dont think I wouldve shouted down a student as this instructor did. She was very rude and abrasive on the recording. If she respects the fact that her student has a different opinion,she doesnt show it very well. The teacher is wrong. One can respect the office of the President and not like the person sitting in the office. Because of the First Amendment,one can even be critical of the President without fear of reprisals. Unless of course you are in this womans classroom,when you run the risk of being shouted at in front of everyone. In my opinion,under my First Amendment rights to have an opinion,this teacher needs to go back to school herself and learn a little civics. And perhaps some better classroom management. She owes it to her students. She owes it to her profession. And she owes it to herself. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Conservation one key to relieving low lake levels Arecent report shows that lower-than-average rainfall is the cause for lower levels in Lake Jackson, which means we all have to conserve more to protect a valuable natural resource. Loss of watermelons is trouble for FFAEditor: This morning (Thursday) as senior students awoke there was this buzz about them. The moment they had waited their whole high school career for was upon them,today was Memories. Memories is a ceremony for the senior class to reflect on the past years accomplishments,from sports to top news,and Grad Night to Graduation. But today was different,as students got to school there was a lull or silence as watermelons,toilet paper,and other random articles of things lay all over the vandalized campus. The reason I bring you this story is not just because the principal took away memories from the class of 2012,but the watermeloms that wereused in this Senior Prankwere from the schools FFA chapter. The Sebring Senior FFA works hard to keep the school image at a prestine condition,doing beautification projects,trash pick-up, and even helping other classes with some needed materials. All in all,the Sebring Senior FFA advisor and agriculture teacher Hallie Webb was not expecting what he came to when he arrived at work today. You see the pastfew years the FFA chapter,along with Webbsagriculture classes,has been working on a project growing watermelons. This was a fundraiser that would prosper as long as thestudents kept up the hard work. Today was a very dim day,as all that hard work lay to waste across the Sebring High School campus as thisso called Senior Prank. As a past Sebring Senior FFA chapter president I know thehardship of keeping the chapteruplifted after an event such as this. Iwas an officer all through middle and high school with Mr. Webb and I would have to say,as a Collegiate FFA member at the University of Florida.I feel that the FFA is here tomake a positive difference inthe lives of students whether through the FFA or through agriculture education. These students were selling these watermelons as an end-of-the-year fundraiser to help send chapter member to the 84th annual Florida FFA State Convention held in Orlando. This was the chapters key fundraiser in finishing off the school year with a bang and helping those members attend the convention and recieve the awards they had worked so hard to earn as they walk across the stage in front of 5,000 plus fellow members from across the sunshine state. Brittany N. Ware University of Florida Collegiate FFA Agriculture Education and Communications Remembering a great friend of the landEditor: Mary Ellen Wards passing away leaves me with profound sadness,as I was a true admirer of hers. I first got to know her when she was a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission. As a monitor of all the development schemes coming before the Zoning Board,it was my pleasure to hear Mary Ellen make her assessment and comments. I soon learned that any development enterprise that may have a negative effect upon the environment or children would get a strong thumbs-down from this no-nonsense commissioner. There were many times when I would seek advice from Mary Ellen,regarding land use problems,and that advice would always prove correct. It certainly proved itself when we (the Audubon Society) were anxious about adding land on to Highlands Hammock State Park. The advice proved to be a winner as the land did become an addition to the park and then some! Mary Ellen,please accept your well deserved accolades in heaven,and know that we will continue to honor all your good work,here on Earth. Hank Kowalski Lake PlacidAnimal Control debate needs a more human touchEditor: In the recent Highlands Today,front page article dated May 19,Gary Pinnell, the author of the article,stated that veterinarians including Elton Giddendanner have suggested that Sheriff Benton enforce the animal laws and that a non-profit humane society take over the animal shelter.The statement is inaccurate and misleading. V eterinarian Elton Giddendanner is currently retained by the Highlands County Humane Society an d may or may not represent the Humane Society views on this subject but he certainly does not represent the view s of every other veterinarian in the county in regards to a non-profit organization take over of Animal Control. I have been to every meeting of the Highlands County Veterinary Association and I have not heard any veterinarian suggest that a non-profit take of Animal Control is warranted. Nor has any veterinarian suggested or mentioned our sheriff or law enforcement in reference to failure of enforcement of animal laws. Evidently from the comments stated,non-profits covet the Animal Control budget. I do not believe the tax-paying public will support a non-profit takeover o f any county department. I do not believe our county com missioners would support such a drastic change in direction. Every community eventu ally goes through the process we are embarking upon. The recent Highlands Today article clearly illustrates that involvement in this issue creates pain on a personal level. Mrs. Spiegel has been stung by painful Facebook comments and Animal Control director Scott is ce rtainly bruised and battered. I hope in the near future that we let the passions cool and we start the process in a more humane manner. Mark Griffin,DV M Avon Park

According to the Associated Press,NOAA is predicting that of four to eight tropical storms will become hurricanes and one to three will be at least Category 3 with winds of at least 111 mph. NOAAs 1981-2010 average is 12 named storms,six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. Thats still a lot of activity. So just because were predicting a near normal season doesnt mean anybodys off the hook at all,said Gerry Bell,the lead seasonal forecaster at NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. Atmospheric and marine conditions indicating a highactivity era that began in 1995 for Atlantic hurricanes continue,Bell said. However,the weather phenomenon known as El Nino, which warms Pacific waters near the equator and increases wind shear over the Atlantic,may develop by the late summer or early fall and help suppress storm development. Our range (of expected storms) is a bit wider this year because of this inherent uncertainty right now based on the best guidance we have as to whether El Nino will form or not,Bell said. This season got an early start when tropical storm Alberto formed Saturday off the coast of South Carolina. Alberto dissipated Tuesday over the Atlantic. Alberto was unusual for being a small storm that formed in a small area favorable for storm development, but the weather conditions as spring transitions into summer sometimes produce tropical systems,said Bill Read, director of the National Hurricane Center. Forecasters name tropical storms when their top winds reach 39 mph; hurricanes have minimum winds of at least 74 mph. The next named storm will be named Beryl. No major hurricane has made a U.S. landfall in the last six years,since Hurricane Wilma cut across South Florida in 2005. This August will mark the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrews catastrophic landfall in South Florida as a Category 5 storm. The season that spawned Andrew started late and produced a total of just six named storms. Rybinski encouraged those with questions to call the Highlands County Emergency Operations Center at 863-385-1112. The Associated Press contributed to this story.

He retired after several years,but still occasionally showed up on campus to lecture or speak in chapel. In the 1930s,a student at Florida Bible Institute heard Judson Van DeVenter speak.

On May 3,Indian River Judge Robert L Pegg granted another continuance, this time until June 21,when the next private attorney docket call is scheduled. The Indian River Clerk of Courts gave n o specific dates for when a possible trial could happen. Carlsons alleged blood alcohol level was recorded as .076 three hours after the accident. The Florida Department of L aw Enforcement calculated his bloodalcohol level between 0.110 and 0.150 when the accident occurred. The legal limit in Florida is .08. The court docket shows that Carlsons motion to suppress evidence collected from the boat was denied by Pegg and records show that Carlsons attorney, Kirk Connell,filed a motion to suppress the FDLE blood alcohol records on Jan. 20,also denied by Pegg. Gov. Charlie Crist suspended Carlson from the Highlands County Board of County Commission in Carlson from office in 2010,the same month Carlson was arrested and pleaded not guilty to the felony and misdemeanor charges. Gov. Rick Scott appointed local contractor Ron Handley to fill Carlsons seat,which expires this year. Handley is currently seeking re-election this November. In January,Carlson waived his rights to a speedy trial,and the original docket call was canceled to allow more time for discovery. Ryan Butler,State Attorney for the 19th Judicial Circuit,stated in an earlier interview that the maximum penalty could be up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine in this case.

For the past nine months,she has been busy raising her twin infants Hayden and Carter. Jetton has already one degree under h er belt,an associates degree,but she does have plans to further her education, keeping what her late husband said to her in mind. I had planned to return to (South F lorida Community College) and try looking at a bachelors program. This just opens up another door,Jetton said. He told me I had to go to school. I thought Id stay home a little bit with the babies. It was important to him, J etton said. With the $10,000 scholarship,Jetton i s able to choose from a handful of fields of study including allied health, nursing and information technology. Ive been looking at physical therapy assistant. My daughter sees one and Im i nterested in that. Im learning to stretch my daughter by watching the therapist, said Jetton. It is an honor to award this to Alicia,said Azure President and CEO J honson Napoleon. We are honored to acknowledge the sacrifice of PFC J oshua L. Jetton with this scholarship and keep his memory alive. Campus President Dr. George Hanak s hared the feelings,stating that the occasion was both an honor and a privil ege. Its a privilege. It makes me proud. Its great for me to be the first one,but f or it to continue on every year on Memorial Day is great,said Jetton. It (the scholarship) means a lot to me. Its very special for people to remember him because I dont forget. I want the recipients of this scholarship to not only know what he did and his sacrifice but that education was important to him. It makes me take a step back and appreciate it. Jetton is looking forward for getting a feel for the classroom again and continuing her education so that herself and her babies may benefit from it. I have a lot of help and support from my family,stated the lifelong Sebring resident. Jetton has been making preparations for the care of her children when she returns to school in August and is currently on a waiting list for child care. Jetton worries that returning to school will be somewhat of a challenge and that she wont be as sociable as other students,but is confident that things will work out. People see me in the grocery store and they see my babies and they will put it together. They say thank you,said Jetton. As the Memorial Day holiday approaches,Jetton continues to remember the sacrifices of her husband and many others like him. Jetton regularly talks with her husbands commanding officer and other members of his squad. I think people here know that its more than just barbecuing and the beach. I think they do,said Jetton. I think they remember.

Four years ago, we took over doing it for them. A lot of those guys were getting up in age, Green said. Ernie Bannon,groundskeeper at Bougainvillea, stood alongside the rows of graves watching and assisting the cadets and Green whenever he could. Its good they do this, Bannon said. The kids do a really great job and its good that they and the soldiers get recognition. The 10 cadets began the lengthy mission just after 7:30 a.m. Saturday and continued on into the morning placing flags and showing respect to each of the military men and women. They do a roll call. They step up and call the soldiers name and salute them,then they place the flag at their site ... Its a lot of work. They have to read e very headstone and gravesite. There are markers on the sites that tell the branch of service and years active and some of them have to be cleaned off to read,Green said. Bannon estimated that the cemetery has nearly 9,000 buried there of which close to 1,300 are soldiers. The cadets place the flags,which are donated by American Legion Post 69, and they are left until after Memorial Day.The cadets re-gather the flags following the holiday. The 10 cadets that worked the Bougainvillea Cemetery Saturday are: Melisa Dominquez (deputy commander),Katherine Norman (squad commander),Sumintra Williams, Khaintia Thomas,Joshua Gaidos,Dominque Bryant, Jamil Pagan,Daniel Washington,Rachel Gaidos and Fatima Marrero.

This consumer is now living in her own apartment and Todd and Roberta assisted her in moving into her first apartment and getting the services she needed.

C M Y K LIVING B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, May 27, 2012 Photos courtesy of Getty Images Summer Reading ListsIn addition to reading lists put together by your local libraries,you can find several good book lists online.Reading Rockets (www.ReadingRockets.org) provides book lists by theme,so if you want to find books about art,monsters,animals or science,you are covered. The website also provides book lists for parents of children with disabilities.Reading is Fundamental (www.RIF.org) provides book lists divided by age group,as well as a multicultural book list.The Childrens Book Council (www.CBCBooks.org) offers lists for social studies and science books,books hot off the presses,and the Childrens Choices lists of books chosen by teams of children from across the country.FAMILY FEATURES When school is out for summer,the last thing many kids want to do is pick up another book. However,reading is one of the most important activities children can do now to help themselves later both when they go back to school in the fall,and later in life. If children dont engage in educational activities such as reading and math over the summer,they can experience summer learning losses. With the majority of U.S. fourth-grade students reading below the proficient level, the summer months are critical for student learning,said Meredith Curley,Dean of the College of Education at University of Phoenix. By engaging in fun reading activities during the summer months,parents not only have the opportunity to encourage learning, but to motivate their children to develop a lifelong love of reading. Curley offers these tips for parents and caregivers to help incorporate reading into everyday activities in ways that will make it fun to keep learning all summer long. Reading is critical for a childs success,no matter what age,said Curley. By finding ways to make reading part of your childrens everyday activities,you are helping them build a solid foundation not just for the next school year,but for their futures. To learn about University of Phoenix education programs visit www.phoenix.edu. For Younger Readers (grades K to 6)Read out loud. Encouraging your children to read aloud will help develop their reading fluency and build their confidence as readers. For example,ask them to read recipe directions as they help you prepare a treat in the kitchen. If they make a mistake,gently point out overlooked letters or words read incorrectly.Let them play. Games and activities played on electronic devices provide many opportunities to engage children with words and letters. Spelling games,word games and matching games can help children build reading proficiency and comprehension. Consider devices with learning games when purchasing a toy for a child. Instead of watching a movie in the car,consider audio books and CDs and DVDs with reading games. Turn them into storytellers Have your child read a book and then retell the story. If he or she has trouble,help by asking the fiveWs:Who,What,Where,When and Why.Hone their critical thinking skills. Success in reading isnt just about decoding words,but also about comprehension. Help your children build critical thinking skills by asking them questions,such as what they think about something that happens in a story,if they have experienced something like that before,and other questions to help engage them in the story.Also,when they ask you questions, answer and then ask a follow-up question.Turn a library visit into an adventure. Make an ordinary trip to the public library an adventure for your child by selecting a topic to research. For instance,set out to learn everything you can about your hometown,animals or space; or set out to answer a specific question. Many libraries also offer weekly classes that parents can attend with their child to encourage the love of reading. Simple activities such as these can increase a childs understanding of sequencing,link reading to realworld activities,expand their vocabulary and feed their curiosity,all while building their interest in reading.Choosing Books A book that is too easy to read doesnt help kids grow as readers,but books that are too difficult to read can be frustrating and discouraging. A simple rule of thumb for choosing an appropriate book is called the Five Finger Rule. Let your children pick out books that interest them. Have them read 100 words from the book,asking them to raise one finger for each word they dont know,or are unsure of. If the child raises more than five fingers,the book is probably too difficult. For Tween and Teen ReadersWhile younger children frequently read for fun,the voluntary reading rate tends to drop dramatically as they move through their teen years. A recent National Endowment of the Arts reading study found that while 54 percent of 9-year-olds read for pleasure,the number drops to 30 percent for 13-year-olds,and only 22 percent for 17-year-olds. Curley recommends that you encourage your teen or tween to read by finding activities that engage their unique interests and allow them to assert their own opinions. Here are some ideas to help tweens and teens rediscover the pleasure of reading:Have them write. Teens can submit book reviews to sites such as www.YABooksCentral.com. This is a great way to combine reading,writing and critical thinking skills. Or,encourage them to write fan fiction,putting their own spin on a favorite book or genre,either as a written story or a video script version of a book.Let them check out graphic novels. These arent the comic books you might have grown up with. There are some high-quality titles available that deal with a wide range of subjects that will appeal to girls and boys and can be a great way to engage reluctant readers.Look for book-to-film novels. If teens have seen the movie,they might be willing to read the book. If you read it too,then you can talk about the differences between the two versions such as what worked,what didnt,why the filmmakers might have made certain changes,etc.Find different reading materials. Magazines,newspapers,short stories and online articles can also help build a teens reading comprehension and vocabulary skills. If your teen has a particular interest,such as cars or sports,consider getting them a magazine subscription.Suggest a book club. Check your local library or bookstore to see if they have teen reading clubs. If not,encourage your teen to start one. They will be able to read what their friends are reading and can then have fun talking about it.Choosing BooksThere are a lot of middle grade and young adult books available. So many,in fact,it can be overwhelming. Here are a few ways you and your teen can find something they will enjoy reading:Start at the library Librarians often showcase new and popular books in displays in the youth reading sections. Let your tween or teen explore the options and read a chapter or two to see what piques their interest. (If they find a series they like,consider buying the rest of the books for them.) There might be suggested teen reading lists on the library website,as well. Go online. Teens tend to want to read what their peers are reading. Check out websites such as www.GoodReads.com,or www.TeenReads.com,or teen book review blogs such as www.TheBookCellarx.com or www.KatiesBookBlog.com. Additionally,many libraries now offer e-books for check out,making it easy to get a good book for your tablet or e-reader.

C M Y K Dear Abby: From time to time you print letters about acts of kindness,and Id like to relate one I witnessed: I was working as a cashier ina grocery store. An elderly woman came through my line with about 10 items in her basket,including some strawberries and shortcakes. Making small talk,I commented on how nice the berries looked. She agreed, and informed me that they were a little treat for herself. She said she didnt have much on her late husbands pension. When I told her the total, her face fell and she asked me to take the strawberries and shortcakes off because she couldnt afford them. I was sad and embarrassed for her. I thought about buying them myself,but had no cash on me and wasnt sure if it might violate a store policy. She paid for the remainder of her items and went outside to rest on a bench before walking home. I began scanning the next customers items while trying to put out of my mind the sadness I felt at the ladys disappointment. My customer asked me why the lady hadnt taken her strawberries. I explained and continued totaling the womans sale. The woman then told me to include the strawberries not for herself,but for the lady outside. She wanted no praise or thanks and asked me to give them to the lady. I took them to the lady on the bench and explained that the woman in line behind her had purchased them for her. She looked down at the strawberries,tucked them into her bag and began to cry,murmuring about the kindness of strangers. I went back inside and had to explain to the next 15 minutesworth of customers in my line why I was crying. The woman who bought the strawberries never saw how grateful the lady was, nor how touched I was,or my co-workers and other customers were not only by her kindness,but her humility in making her gift anonymous. She affected so many people that day,I hope those reading this letter will affect and influence many more. Indiana Reader Dear Reader: Thank you for a sweet and uplifting letter. Im sure it will stimulate others to consider how they, too,can help those who are less fortunate than themselves. Dear Abby: Because many women have stopped wearing pantyhose or stockings when they go out on a dinner date or formal function,would it be a fair turnaround for me to put on a three-piece suit and tie and not wear any socks? Id appreciate your thoughts, please. Sockless in Michigan Dear Sockless: Women who forgo pantyhose or stockings in hot weather usually do it because theyre wearing strappy sandals or open-toed summer footwear. Hosiery doesnt look right with them. I have seen men at least on the West Coast wear T-shirts under their sport coats and go barefoot in their loafers. But I have never seen a man don a three-piece suit and tie and go sockless. (And I never hope to.) I dont recommend it. Dear Abby: I am being married in two months,but my question isnt about weddings. My question is,how can a woman ensure a lasting marriage? About to Become a Mrs. Dear About: At a womens networking event years ago,my mother was asked that question. She replied,One good rule is never go to bed angry.(I agree.) Phyllis Diller was there and topped her. Right!she said. Stay up and fight until youre exhausted. Youll sleep better!

Solution on page 4B DIVERSIONS When I think back to the days of divorce and single parenting, there is much to grieve about:palpable pain of heart and mind; feelings of rejection and unworthiness; a child whose eyes held sadness while trying to be brave; the question marks of the days ahead. But by Gods grace,I climbed out of the pit of despair and set my feet back upon the Rock of my salvation,Jesus Christ. When the memories of that time swim to the surface,they bubble up with joys of raising an incredible son; singing with the choir and stretching to do solos and duets; managing my household wisely and frugally; and,learning to yield my desires to the God who loved me and had my best interests at heart. Such thinking is not living in denial; but facing the truth head on and realizing that truth is embodied in the person of Jesus Christ.He can make all things new.I fed on many Scripture passages at that time; but,one of my favorites is found in Romans 8:28,NKJV,says, And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God,to those who are the called according to His purpose. I see the parallel as we think back on our nations history this Memorial Day weekend.We remember our forefathers who sacrificed to give us freedom to worship God; freedom of speech; freedom to pursue a life of meaning and purpose without government control. More wars were fought as years progressed. Men and women sacrificed and died to protect these liberties for future generations; and,the battle continues. These memories are painful yet infused with Gods goodness to preserve our free nation.Countless acts of mercy were shown in liberation of captives and assistance in rebuilding from ruins. The economic free fall dooming our nation has its answer in returning to God Almighty as found in the Bible. He alone can save us.Proverbs warns about those who use their authority in ways that do not promote righteousness and call good evil and evil good.And Proverbs 14:34 reminds us,Righteousness exalts a nation,but sin is a reproach to any people. Lets allow the Holy Spirit to help us see Gods fingerprints throughout Americas history so that Memorial Day will be significant in helping us return to the God of the Bible and his ways.Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. Memories that enliven the future Pause And Consider Jan Merop Metro ServicesAries (March 21-April 20) Aries,financial constraints could delay the start of a new project that you have wanted to do for quite a while. Dont fall into despair; you just may have to save a little longer. Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus,learn all the facts before you get pulled into gossip. Otherwise you may become part of the problem of disseminating the wrong type of information. Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini,though you are naturally intuitive,this week you may have a burst of purely psychic energy that cannot be ignored. You may find vivid dreams are part of the deal. Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,you are feeling very passionate and you have deep and rich emotions this week. It is all about developing an even more solid relationship with your partner. Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Dont feel tempted to give anyone a pep talk,Leo. You may just be wasting your time. The person you have in mind might not be too receptive to advice. Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo,thoughts of love and romance could distract you and make it hard to do your job. Dont be tempted to spend all the time on the phone. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You have an inherent ability to read a persons thoughts and motives, Libra. You may find that peoples feelings simply jump out toward you. This ability could be taxing, though. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Emotional issues with a family member could leave you seeking an escape route,Scorpio. This may be just what you need to clear your mind and get back on track. Sagittarius (Nov. 23Dec. 21) Sagittarius,you are feeling less inhibited this week,which may lead to a loose tongue. Try not to offend because you arent thinking things through but operating on impulse. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Capricorn,stress on the job could have you thinking about quitting. But a look at your finances may tell you this isnt a wise idea at the time. Stick with it for a little while longer. Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) Mistakes from the past could come back to haunt you,Aquarius. For a few days you may be low on selfconfidence. Lie low if you dont trust your judgement just yet. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Pisces,though youre usually physically active, this week you can benefit from just taking a small break. Focus on recharging.

C M Y K A snag is basically a standing dead tree. M any folks may not realize how important these eerie looking silhouettes on the horizon really are. Snags and fallen trees are a v ital part of the forest. This dead wood provides import ant habitat for many species of wildlife,reduces soil erosion,helps store water and n utrients,provides a seedbed,and is an important element in the carbon cycle. Snags and deadwood serve as habitat for a variety o f species including invertebrates,vertebrates and microbes. In fact,trees can actually provide more homes for wildlife dead than when t hey were living. Dead trees may have hollow trunks, e xcavated cavities and dead branches,all of which can p rovide homes for many types of critters. If the snag falls into the water,it serves aquatic creatures with homes as well. S nags actually enhance natural plant communities by attracting wildlife that may otherwise not be found in that area. Standing snags serve various needs for many species of birds and insects. Ospreys and kingfishers utilize the standing dead wood for hunting. They perch on the tall snag and watch for prey. Since the tree is dead,it does not sport any branches and the view for these predators is unobstructed. Woodpeckers also need snags for the purpose of feeding and nesting. Insects that live in the decomposing wood offer an easy meal for these feathered creatures. In addition,woodpeckers excavate many holes each year and rarely nest in the same one twice. Thus,they create cavities for other birds and creatures to use. Secondary cavity nesters such as bluebirds,nuthatches,wood ducks,owls and squirrels cannot hollow out their own holes so they depend on these abandoned nests. Other birds that depend on snags include nuthatches, wood ducks,owls,vultures, hawks,wrens and warblers. Once the bark loosens and starts to separate from the tree,the spaces between the bark and sapwood are used by bats,insects,reptiles, amphibians and birds. Even when the tree falls,another group of species start to use the snag until it is completely decomposed and cycled back into the system. Snags,as well as fallen trees,are often used for nesting,storing,roosting,perching,and foraging. Some of the species that depend on downed wood include mice, bears,fox,otters and bobcats. Fungi and invertebrates are some of the first to occupy the tree and usually accelerate and even aid the decomposition process. Decayed wood and vegetation produced from decomposing trees has been shown to reduce soil erosion. The detritus formed from these dead trees has the ability to hold water,thereby adding moisture to the soil,which reduces erosion. In rivers,streams and other bodies of water,snags slow down the flow and act as buffers to protect the banks from erosion. They trap silt and sand which buffers the stream against rapid changes in sediment loading. By holding moisture, downed trees provide an excellent seedbed. Not only is the deceased tree full of water,but nutrients are also plentiful. When seeds drift or fall into the area,new plants are formed adding diversity and food to the forest floor. Snags are also an important element in the cycling of carbon through the natural area. Snags can stand in the forest from two to 100 years depending on the type of tree and the elements. It is important that every forest support a continuous supply of these dead trees and downed logs so that populations of animals that depend on them can survive. Snags also vary in size. The larger snags are more valuable to some wildlife than the smaller ones. Black bears require very large snags. Smaller creatures utilize the lesser snags. Many birds will nest in the small dead trees. Next time youre out in the woods,take some time to check out a snag or some down wood. Youll be amazed what you might see.Wildlife condominiums Snags harbor many insects that are food for wildlife. The outer bark supplies a large variety of beetles,spiders and ants for birds to feed on. The inner bark is where woodpeckers eat larvae and pupae of insects. Mammals such as raccoon and black bear may tear into these areas of snags to munch on bugs. The heartwood is where strong excavators such as the pileated woodpecker seek out carpenter ants and termites. The space between partially detached bark and the trunk is where nuthatches, winter wrens,and brown creepers roost or search for food. Species of tree frogs,bats and butterflies also find shelter there. Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department.

Like a Hollywood star,Coronados 1.5 mile-long beach literally sparkles,thanks to the mineral mica glinting in its sand. Thats one of the reasons why Coronado flanked by the iconic hotel featured in Marilyn Monroes 1958 film Some Like It Hot has been named the No. 1 beach in the United States in the 2012 survey by Dr. Beachprofessor Stephen P. Leatherman of Florida International University. It is the first time Dr. Beachhas given the top slot to California in the more than two decades that he has been ranking beaches in the United States based on their environmental quality and safety for swimmers. Coronado Beach,on a peninsula across the bay from San Diego,has near-perfect Mediterranean weather and a postcard backdrop. I think its one of the most super beaches around,said Leatherman,director of FIUs Laboratory for Coastal Research.

Artists wanted for Caladium Festival Art Competition HAL general meeting Tuesday Associated PressLOS ANGELES Coming in second on American Idolmay still be a path to superstardom,but it no longer offers guaranteed paychecks worthy of the next pop idol or rock star. Wednesday nights Idol runner-up,Jessica Sanchez, doesnt have a definite shot at producing an album and could be paid as little as $30,000 in advances for recording singles. This, according to the Idolcontract she and other Season 11 contestants signed that was reviewed by The Associated Press. The agreement is the first time in Idolshistory that producers are not offering the shows runner-up an album deal that in previous years had a guaranteed advance of at least $175,000. The move comes amid declining album sales for the recording industry and a drop in viewership for the Idolshow. Representatives for Idolrefused to comment. Nearly 21 million TV viewers seems like a lot but for an American Idolseason ender,its a new low. The crowd that tuned in Wednesday night when bluesy guitar man Phillip Phillips won the Idol crown constituted the smallest for an Idolseason ender in its history,according to preliminary Nielsen Co. figures. The number was down by nearly one-third from the saw Scotty McCreerys victory a year ago. Idol cuts payouts to runners-up

The professional stylists left Jamaica several years ago and re-located to New York City,where her career quickly picked up and took off. It was there that Bryan learned the ins and outs of being a professional hairstylists, working not only in salons but within the fashion industry. Bryans experience spans the hair care field as she has worked with men and women of all ethnicities and hair textures, making her a standout in her field. She arrived in Florida in 2004. Loaded with years of experience and a positive attitude,Bryan moved around a bit before settling in Highlands County. In February,Bryan opened a new salon and has been busy working to build her clientele since getting settled into her new place. I am into hair care. I want to get the hair healthy and looking healthy and being healthy,Bryan said. The long-time stylist is fully capable of providing any and all hair care needs. Bryan provides a full list of services including color,highlights,cuts,extensions and weaves,perms,relaxers and braiding. The islander specializes in dreadlocks,of course, making her somewhat unique in Highlands Hair by Gloria Salon hoping for a new style News-Sun photo by SAMANTHA GHOLAR Gloria Bryan grew up in Jamaica and worked in New York before coming to Highlands County and opening her salon just south of Avon Park. High school and college students hoping to find temporary jobs may be in for a tough time this summer once again as they compete with older,more experienced workers in a still-struggling economy. But if your kid is fortunate enough to find work, there are a few things he or she and you should know about the economic and tax ramifications of temporary employment: Payroll deductions. If this is their first job,warn your kids about common payroll deductions that can take a big bite out of takehome pay. Common culprits include state and federal income taxes,Social Security and Medicare (FICA),health and unemployment insurance,uniforms and union dues. When starting a new job your child will be asked to f ill out IRS Form W-4,the Employees Withholding Allowance Certificate. Employers use this form to determine how much income tax should be withheld from your paycheck. The form's instructions help determine how many personal allowances can be claimed. Note:If you claim your children as dependents and they earn less than $5,950 during 2012,they probably wont owe any income tax for the year. If so,they can request that employers not withhold income taxes by claiming an exemption from withholdingon Line 7 of the W-4. However,if you notice on their year-end W-2 form that the employer did indeed withhold federal and state income taxes,your child must file a tax return in order to get a refund. Self-employed status. Many teens start their working careers by being selfemployed,doing part-time jobs like babysitting,yard work or housekeeping. It's important to know that this income is also subject to income tax. If their self-employment net earnings exceed $400 in 2012,your kids also must pay self-employment tax, even if they owe no income tax. This tax is similar to the Social Security and Medicare taxes that get withheld from regular wages.

I can do all types of hair. I have a lot of different products that I use. I dont just use one product because everyone has different hair texture.

Continued from page 1C BUSINESS Special to the News-SunSEBRING Chip and Linda Boring,Broker-owners of RE/MAX Realty Plus in Sebring,welcome Jeanny Campbell to their team. Chip Boring and Campbell began selling real estate together around 1980 in a small independent company in Sebring. A few years later,they both got their brokers license at the same time. In 1989 the Borings purchased the RE/MAX franchise and Campbell joined them and was there for about nine years until she reached her goal of selling 75 homes a year when she took a sabbatical to pursue other business interests. Helping people with their real estate needs has always been her passion so Campbell came back to Sebring and joined a small start-up company but her heart was at RE/MAX. RE/MAX Realty Plus is a leader in Highlands County and No. 1 in closed transactions for 10 years with two beautiful offices in Lake Placid and Sebring. Chip and Linda,along with their support staff,Rose Porter and Tammy Leach,create an environment where the agents are inspired to come in to the office and work. I love being part of that first class, professional,progressive, positive environment again. I always wanted to be back here and the door opened to allow me to do that, Campbell said. We are glad to have Jeanny back with us. Jeanny is focused,disciplined and a straight shooting business woman who loves to serve and help others,Linda Boring said. Campbell specializes in residential real estate and brings vast knowledge and e xperience in foreclosure and short sales. Campbell has been a real estate investor and a rehabber of distressed properties, b ut today chooses to bring the good deals to her buyers and not compete with them. F or about five years she coached real estate investors and Realtors all over the country on how to successfully negotiate short sales and IRS liens. Campbell can be reached at 385-3101 or by e-mail at jeanny@jeannycampbell.co m; in Facebook as Jeanny Campbell. RE/MAX Realty Plus is at 809 US 27 South, Sebring at The Key Plaza, south of Hammock Road. Campbell joins Re/Max Realty Plus in Sebring is assessed at 13.3 percent of net self-employment income reported. The IRS provides a handy guide called Taxable Income for Studentsguide that explains what types of income are and are not taxable (www.irs.gov). For example,tips,bank account interest and certain scholarship-paid expenses (such as room and board) must be reported as taxable income. IRA contributions. Retirement is probably the last thing on your teenager's mind,but you should know that they are allowed to open and contribute earned income up to $5,000 to an IRA each year. If you or the grandparents want to make a down payment on your kid's future,consider funding an IRA. For teens it usually makes sense to open a Roth IRA as opposed to a traditional IRA. Here's why: With a Roth,you pay tax on the contributions that year and kids are usually in the lowest tax bracket. Then,contributions and investment earnings grow tax-free forever.With a traditional IRA,you make pretax contributions but pay income tax on withdrawals at retirement usually at a much higher tax rate. If someone opened a Ro th IRA at age 16 and contributed only $1,000 a year, the account could be worth o ver $300,000 by age 60. Sit down with your kid and play around with the Roth IRA Calculator at www.dinkytown.net its a great way to teach the importance of compound earnings.

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentSEBRING In the words of Radical runner Emily Smith, Running is a stress reliever and its a way that I can just relax and not worry about anything. While she may be hanging up her high school cleats, Smith will soon lace up in Northeast Georgia near the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountain as she officially signed Tuesday afternoon to be an Emmanuel College Lion. Emmanuel is a fairly small college that is working to grow in size. Part of the plan to accomplish that is continually adding new majors and minors programs as well as building a new nine-million dollar sports facility with all the works, including an indoor collegiate pool and track. This, however, is not the primary reason Smith chose the school. My sophomore year I was looking for a running camp and coach Shoemaker gave me a brochure that told me to go to this running camp in North Carolina, she explained. It was here that she met recently named NAIA Christian coach of the year Jose Larios. I liked him as a coach wanted to run for him but unfortunately the college he was at (Monreat) didnt have my major. Luckily for Smith, last December he started a brand new cross country program at Emmanuel which offers her desired major of kinesiology or pre-physical therapy as she explained it. It is not just his coaching that appealed to Smith, but his overall character as well. He puts Christ before running. He said, My number one priority is for you to reflect Christ on this campus, on the course and in the community. And indeed they will. The runners will be making the move earlier than their peers to do two community service SPORTS D SECTION Inside This Section Rahal, Andretti rivalry . . .5D Junior Kickers Clinic . . .5D News-Sun Sunday, May 27, 2012 News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN Sebrings Seth Abeln takes batting practice Friday as he and a host of the top seniors from around the state prepare for the FACA Baseball All-Star Classic at Firemens Field.

GoinPostal, having not lost in 11 regular season games, was facing a very tough Pool Paradise squad that would have liked nothing better than to head into next weeks City Tournament on a high note. And they started out like they meant it. With Jordan Acevedo having some location issues for Postal in the first, Jordan Austin drew a walk to lead things off. Astolen base and a fly out later, Acevedo grooved one a little too nice and Jimmy Peck unloaded it over the left-field fence on a line for a 2-0 lead. Daniel Simons then drew a walk and Alex Colon singled to center before Michael Ford split the gap in right-center for a two-run double. Jay Bible came on in early relief and got out of it, but the 4-0 lead had made a statement. But the boys of Paradise would get an answer back, giving a little help as well. With one out, Gerig Blackman singled to right and moved to second on a wild pitch as Marcus Wright drew a walk. An error off a Tyler Farmer hot-shot brought Blackman in and Lou Martinez folGoin Postal saves its best for last Goin Postal9Pool Paradise8 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Pool Paradise second baseman Jordan Austin readies to put the tag on Jordan Acevedos attempted steal Thursday. See POSTAL, Page 3D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The Major League Baseball draft is still a few weeks away, but a bevy of talented hopefuls had descended upon Sebring with an eye toward improving their prospects or turning a few more heads. Thats because this weekend marks the 34th Annual Florida Athletic Coaches Association All-Star Baseball Classic at Firemens Field where youll have the chance to see the stars of tomorrow taking their hacks, flashing their leather and popping catchers mitts with their speediest fastballs. More than 80 of the top high school seniors from around the state began gathering Friday to go through their warm-ups, hitting from the cage and taking infield practice. The dozens of professional and college scouts on hand then timed all the players in the 60-yard dash. This is all part of the yearly showcase to give the players one last chance to impress the scouts and either secure a college scholarship or enhance their draft positions. Highlands County is being represented by Sebrings lefthanded pitcher Aaron Hart and infielder Seth Abeln, who will be amongst a slew Its FACA time at Firemens See FACA, Page 3D By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Dwyane Wade has been battling knee soreness. LeBron James was hobbling after a falling into a courtside cameraman. Chris Bosh remains sidelined indefinitely with an abdominal strain. Mike Miller looks to be in agony whenever he moves. An extra day of rest doesnt sound like much, but it means plenty right now to the Miami Heat. Now halfway to their goal of an NBAchampionshi p, the Heat took a welcomed and needed day off Friday after closing out their Eastern Conference semifinal matchup with the Indiana Pacers. The East finals open Monday in Miami against eith er Philadelphia or Boston, teams that will settle their second-round series with a Game 7 on Saturday night. We can use it, James said after the Heat ousted t he Pacers with a Game 6 win in Indianapolis on Thursday. Any team in the postseason, any extra day that you can get, it definitely helps us. So were going to take advantage of it. Its not like the Heat were planning to sit at home all day, since most players at this time of year tend to hit the training room on off days. Still, for the first time in a while, Friday provided a chance for the reigning East champs to relax a bit, especially after three hard-fought wins in five days allowed Miami to claw back from what was a soon-forgotten 21 series deficit to the Pacers. Wade and James combined to score 197 points in the Heat resting up before return to East finals See HEAT, Page 4D

Farmer came on in relief in the fourth for GoinPostal, but the Pool boys got to him. Austin walked and stole second, with Frazier then singling through the middle to nudge the lead to 8-4. Peck almost left the yard again with a deep fly to right, but it was hauled in just short of the fence to hold the lead right there. And even while not yet admitting defeat, the team was starting to rationalize it. Better to get it out of our system now than in the tournament, assistant coach Andrew Bible said. It would help us to not be overconfident for the tournament, Doty said. Y et the team was by no means giving up. Farmer then did some damage of his own in the bottom of the fourth when, with two outs and Blackman on board, he sent a rocket launch well over the 292-foot sign in center. Martinez looked to make it back-to-back jacks when he lofted one down the rightfield line and over the fence, but it was foul by inches. He did then double to center, but was left stranded. But onto the sixth, with the light starting to fade, and the time limit signaling that it would be the last inning, GoinPostal had one more chance. The first two batters went down, making it seem all the more likely that the perfect season was coming to an end. But Martinez got things started with a single to center and Adam Greenslade picked the perfect time for his first home run, tying it up with a smash off a light standard in left. Bible kept it alive, beatin g out an infield single, bringing Doty to the plate. And just as he had done a week before to move the team record to 10-0, Doty delivered another walk-off, this time a double to center, with Bible sliding in just ahead of the tag to make it a 12-0 season for GoinPostal. If there was a game we were going to lose, this would have been it, head coach Adam Greenslade said. We just played terrible the first couple of innings and they jumped all over us. But the kids kept battling back and continued to believe they could win. This is a great group of kids and this is the most fun Ive had coaching. Continued from 1D News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Jimmy Peck blasted two home runs, but they werent quite enough as Goin Postal staged a late rally to top Pool Paradise. Postal stays perfect of top talent. ESPNs Keith Law recently listed the top 100 baseball p rospects from around the country, college and high school players alike. Eight on the list were Florida high schoolers and five of them are here. Zach Eflin of Hagerty High School in Oviedo, P ensacola-Paces Addison Russell, Walker Weickel of Olympia, Lewis Brinson of Coral Springs and Winter Havens own Tyler Pike are on hand to take part in the showcase. They, along with all the top-tier talent, hope to follow in the footsteps of past FACA p articipants who have gone on the major league heights. Names like Prince Fielder, Chipper Jones, Zack Greinke, Alex Rodriguez are familiar to all baseball fans, and they all had their chance in front of the scouts at the FACA. More recently, Eric Hosmer, out of American Heritage, came to town for the 2008 event and was soon selected by the Kansas City Royals in the draft and is in the midst of his second season with the big club. The players have had time to mingle while staying and gethering for meals at the Kenilworth Lodge, before taking it to Firemens Field for practices and being timed in the 60-yard dash by the collection of scouts. The North and South squads squared off in Saturdays opening game, with the East and West having faced each other in the later tilt. Action continues today, with the losing teams from Saturday playing at 11 a.m. while the game between the winning teams will start 30 minutes following the completion of the first contest. Tickets for each game is $10, a fraction of the overall cost of seeing either the Marlins or Rays play, with the action and talent on display not being that far off as some of these amateurs may well be joining the major league counterparts within a few years. And you have the chance to see them right here as Highlands County once again becomes the hub of Floridas amateur baseball talent with some future stars likely in the making.

C M Y K final three games of the Indiana series, while the Pacersstarters collectively managed 184. Other Heat players stepped u p along the way Udonis Haslem with 14 points in Game 4, Shane Battier with 13 in Game 5, Miller with 12 in Game 6 but with Bosh sidelined, it was Wade and James who welcomed the challenge of having to handle much of the offensive responsibility. I dont know if theyve been required to shoulder as much responsibility as theyve had to now, particularly now that Chris is out, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. And were making no excuses. We have enough. But they have to give us more a nd thats what competition will do. You play against good competition in this league and it brings out the best in you you hope. Bosh told ESPN.com this week that he is improving, b ut stopped short of offering a date for his possible return. He was hurt midway through Game 1 of the Indiana series, meaning nearly two full weeks have passed since he was diagnosed with a strained lower abdominal muscle. The best-case scenario for recovery for someone with that type of injury is typically 2-3 weeks, though the Heat have never deviated from saying Bosh is out indefinitely. I appreciate extra rest, Wade said. Im never going to cross my eye on that at all. I feel like its well-deserved. I think also it gives us an opportunity to get Chris more therapy, more treatment the days that were off and he moves that much closer to being able to rejoin this ballclub. I thought this was a very physical series ... so the rest will do us some (good). The Pacers probably would suggest Wade couldnt get much better than he was in the last 10 quarters of their series. Wade was awful 2 for 13 shooting, five points, five turnovers in Game 3, an Indiana blowout that many thought put the Pacers in control of the series. He started Game 4 by missing seven of his first eight shots. And from there, the 2006 finals MVPwas in 2006 finals MVPform again: Wade shot 39 for 57 the rest of the series, putting up 41 points and 10 rebounds in Thursdays clincher. Since 1992, according to STATS LLC, theres been 52 instances of someone having at least 40 points and 10 rebounds in a playoff game. Of those, 50 came from players listed to be at least 6foot-6. The other two are by Wade, perhaps generously listed at 6-foot-4. Spectacular, from the beginning to the end, James said of Wades Game 6 effort. He got in a rhythm early and just kept going. James missed a layup with 1:34 left in the first half on Thursday, his left leg crashing into a television cameraman sitting just beyond the baseline. He was shaken up and briefly tended to on the Heat bench, but played all but 28 seconds of the second half and insisted he was fine afterward. And Miller who has dealt with several injuries in his two Miami seasons makes running jokes about his health, not even acknowledging things hurt even though hes taken to sitting on the floor during games of late to help stretch his back. Miller had 10 points in the first five games of the series. His 12 on Thursday came on four 3-pointers, his specialty. Its all about opportunity, Miller said. Thats what this team has right now, opportunity. The way they all see it, the job is only half done. Miami has eight postseason wins. It takes 16 to win an NBA title. So even though some aches and pains are there, it doesnt change the goal. Its a no-excuse season, Spoelstra said, a familiar refrain for him in recent weeks. And this is a noexcuse team.

Some of these teammates she met at the camp in North Carolina, including her future roommate Hannah Helms. I am going to enjoy my new teammates even though I am going to miss my old ones I have coached Emily for three years now and she has p ut in three very hard, dedicated years, said Sebring cross country coach Krista Schult, Its been a joy watching her grow as a runner and also as a person. Schult noticed that the biggest difference between Smiths senior and sophomore year was her love for the sport itself. When I got her sophomore year she loved cross country now I think its a whole different level-shes continuing on with it in college and its just that deeper passion and the dedication has grown. Collegiate cross country is an increased distance of 6K, which Schult believes Smith will handle just fine. She can handle the differences and long runs; shes always wanted to go longer. We appreciate coach Krista and all that she has done to help her and encourage her, said mother Lynda Hodge. She went on to explain, Its hard for us because she is an only child, shes an only grandchild-shes it. So we will be making lots of trip but it will be worth it! Faced with this bittersweet goodbye, Smith added, I like small towns and I am going to a smaller town but Im going to miss all my friends and family. Her mother could not be any happier with the choice. As Hodge told her daughter, If you never go youll never know. So she is going, and we are thrilled.

Thats who Rahal wanted to beat more than anyone else on the track. And rest assured, Andretti felt the same way. Looks like theyve passed on that vitriol to their kids. Graham Rahal and Marco Andretti have developed q uite an IndyCar rivalry, which was only heightened when Rahal took the blame for an April crash at Long Beach that catapulted Andrettis car into the air before it slid into a tire barrier. Hes still all worked up about it, Rahal snipped this week. To me, I dont even care about it anymore. Forget it. It took me out, too. Then, with a healthy bit of sarcasm, he added, Like I was meaning to do that. IndyCar officials are loving all the bitter feelings, especially since it involves two of the sports most prominent families. Mario Andretti won the Indianapolis 500 in 1969 and spent the rest of his long career futilely chasing anothe rwin. His son, Michael, led more laps than any other driver without actually winning the b iggest race. Now theres Marco, who n early won as a rookie in 2 006 but was edged at the line by Sam Hornish in one of the closest finishes ever. I still live for all this, 72year-old Mario said Friday. I ride with Marco every inch of the way. The Rahals are just as passionate about the Brickyard. Bobby won the 500 in 1986, along with three series championships. His son became the youngest winner in IndyCar history at age 19, finished third in last years 500 and is viewed as one of the brightest young prospects in the series. Not surprisingly, all that success has led to plenty of clashes between the two families. Were competitors. What is yours is not mine and vice versa, Mario Andretti said. Theres nothing wrong with that. If it gets out of hand, thats one thing. But it doesnt. The secondand third-generation drivers can be respectful of each other off the track, as they were during a promotional appearance in New York earlier this week. They talked of the rivalry being healthy for the sport and fist-bumped each other on the way out of the room. But dont look for them to become dinner buddies anytime soon. The 23-year-old Graham, especially, seems to thrive on the idea of butting heads with the Andrettis. I can flat out tell you, when I was in Star Mazda (a developmental series), the goal we set the first day we were a team was that wed be faster than Marco at every single session of the year, Rahal said. Why was that? Because, Rahal shot back, he was an Andretti. Its not too surprising, given the way Grahams dad felt about Marcos father. When my dad worked out in our fitness room when I was a kid, on the wall was a picture of Michael, Graham recalled. It was motivation. Thats the way it is, thats the way its always been. Let the trash-talking begin! My dad beat the living you-know-what out of Michael, Graham said. Look at the history. Yeah, Michael won a lot of races, but he didnt win an Indy 500 or three championships. Series officials know a good rivalry, with two recognizable names, can only help build interest in a series that still struggles mightily to get noticed beyond its signature event. Certainly, the folks over at ABC, which is broadcasting the race and desperately seeking out new story lines now that Danica Patrick has jumped to NASCAR, would love to see Marco and Graham battling for the win on Sunday. From our perspective in the booth, a head-to-head with a Rahal and an Andretti over the last 10 laps, that would be a great story, said former IndyCar driver Eddie Cheever, who is now an analyst for the network. You know that those two guys going into the last corner are not going to be thinking, Oh, I hope he doesnt get angry at me today.Theyve going to be going for the final jab. Cheever believes the animosity is genuine, not contrived, the result of natural competition passed down from father to son (or, in the case of the Andrettis, grandfather to grandson). Its a deep-seeded, wellnourished animosity, Cheever said. Its good. I like it that two new drivers have the right amount of ambition and are not embarrassed about saying what theyre thinking. Im sure it irritates the hell out of them when one goes faster than the other, as it should. If it didnt, theyre probably in the wrong business. Marco seems more confident than ever, with good reason. All month long, hes been one of the fastest cars on the track. Pole day was actually a bit of a disappointment, as he settled for the fourth-best time and a starting spot on the inside of the second row. He had the third-fastest time Friday in the final practice and the two guys ahead of him, Ganassi Racing stars Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon, figured Andretti was actually holding something back. I think its ours to lose, Andretti gushed. Mario is impressed with his 25-year-old grandsons increasing skill behind the wheel. Marco has always been able to go fast, and bravado has never been a problem, but hes had trouble harnessing the enormous potential he showed during his first race at Indy. For the first time, I think hes really been tuning in with the car, just the slightest changes, Mario said. That was one of my specialties. When you can reach the sweet spot by making just small, small changes to get it as close as you can, then youve got something. Hes been doing that. I just hope it carries over to Sunday. Rahal, who races for Ganassis satellite team, also figures to be one of the top contenders. Hell start 12th from the outside of the fourth row. While it pains him to say it, Rahal acknowledges that win by either him or gulp an Andretti would be a major boost to Americas most famous race. It would be a great thing for an American to win, but it would be an even better thing if its a recognizable name, Rahal said. Its probably no secret that I really dont want Marco to win, but at the end of the day it would be good to get one of our names back up there in the sport. That would mean a lot.
