Every year,radio operators provide communication services in hundredso f natural disasters,community events and other occasions around the nation. That tradition began decades ago, when the electronics were larger and bulkier,emergency power less reliable,and antennas for the frequencies used far harder to manage. The task of making ready for an emergency gave rise to an annual event known as Field Day,when amateurs from across the nation move into the field and simulate emergency conditions for a twenty-four hour span each June. During times of widespread power outages like the hurricanes experienced here in Florida,Amateur Radio is often the only way people can communicate,and hundreds of volunteer hams help save lives and property. s hard to imagine the entire Florida peninsula being cut off from the rest of the country,said Fred Seely, l ocal Field Day chair for the Highlands County Amateur Radio Club,ut it has happened in island nations in the Caribbean,like the CaymanI slands just a few years ago. There,power stations were knocked out by a storm and local radio amateurs,working from solarand genera-t or-powered stations,spent weeks providing the only health and welfare communications link from the islands to the rest of the world. More recently,the Haitian earthquake required hundreds of hams to help coordinate the initial response until basic communications could be re-established on the island. The Highlands County Amateur Radio Club will be operating five hamradio stations from the shore of Lake Istokpoga from Saturday afternoon until Sunday at 11 a.m. One of those stations will be reserved for visitors interested in the hobby to make actual radio contacts with other stations around the country and the world,and will be equipped for voice or computer keyboard-to-keyboard communication.

With a vengeance. ve always looked at summers in Central Florida asp unishment for the nice winters we have. In February, while much of the country shivers and shakes,we here in this part of the Sunshine s tate merrily run around in short sleeves. Oh,occasionally we might have to put on long sleeves and even a light jacket,but bundling up? Doesnt happen around here.T he only time we risk frostb ite is if we spend too much time in the freezer rummaging for ice cream. S ummer is a far different s tory. First off,theres the humidity. I have been to other parts of the countryw here people have complained about the humidity in their area. In most cases, Florida has you all beat. Hair doesnt frizz in this part of the country,it goes limp, giving up the fight before its even joined. A nd it gets hot. Not pleasantly hot,that motivates you to find a nice pool to divei nto,but oppressively hot, the kind of heat that when you step outside you want to immediately turn around andg o back into your air-conditioned cocoon. Forget any errands you planned to run. It tires you out as your rush from your (hopefully cool car to the (hopefully cool store/restaurant/mall, hoping you will have enough energy left to drag yourself back to your front door, looking forward to the reviving caress of your air conditioner. It amazes me that there are people here in Highlands County who do not have air conditioning. Theyrely on fans and seem content to live in a house with a higher temperature than I find comfortable. They are made of tougher stuff than I am. You might be asking yourself why I live here if Im so down on the weather. Well, there are a number of reasons. For one thing,I like Sebring. Despite the summers its a nice little town to live in,and Im not going to be chased away by somet hing as trivial as the weath e r. Another reason Im still h ere is I hate moving. Its a pain and Ive done it far more often then I wanted toi n the past. Besides,where would I go? There is no perf ect place weather-wise and at least here I can beat the heat with air conditioning. S peaking of summer,a friend alerted me to a potential danger for people who l ike to grill outdoors during this time of year. According t o a news report I found on www.cbsnews.com earlier this month,a man caught fire at his grill because of his sunscreen. I am not kidding. According to the account, Brett Sigworth sprayed on some Banana Boat Sport Performance sunscreen,and then went to his hot grill. He picked up a holder to s hift some charcoal briquettes and the next thing he k new fire went up his arm. Others at the scene were able to put out the flames, but not before Sigworth got second-degree burns on partso f his upper body.The burns corresponded to the lines where he applied the sunscreen. According to doctors he was very lucky because af ew more seconds might have caused worse damage. Warnings on the product say its flammable and not to use it near heat or an open flame. But they dont address how flammable it is once you put it on your skin,or how long to wait before going near,say,a hot grill. Me? I think I will pass on spray-on sunscreen and grilling and hole up in my nice cool house. After all,it wont be summer forever.At some point the pleasant weather will return,and I will enjoy it when it does. ll try not gloat. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Summers in Highlands County Lauras Look L aura Ware There may not be a legal obligation to call in the authorities when something like this happens,but there is certainly am oral obligation to report problems like this. It could have saved a life. You hear about it in big cities,but you never expect it to happen here in Highlands County. Where strangersd ont want to be involved by reporting a crime. Where people do not want the h assle of police questions. Some were likely afraid that they would have been caught drinking whileu nder age. Certainly,there may have been illegal drinking. We cant confirm t hat,but it is a mainstay of parties like this and frankly,anyone who denies it is not facing reality. It was in sheriff reports that several of the witnesses were under age and thata ll the subjects had been reported to have been drinking throughout the night. Teens drinking happens in any town a nd at all times,especially when parties like this occur. Everyone knows it,and to some extent,accepts that it happens. Yes,it is illegal,and we agree it should not happen,but that is not the issue here. The issue arises when several individu als witness a person who is pummeled to the point of unconsciousness,is d ragged outside and left on the sidewalk,bleeding,and no one thinks to even call an ambulance. I t is appalling to see in a report that the assailants were pulled off by witn esses at the party while the victim was already unconscious. Witnesses who knew he was unconscious when he was dragged outside by his feet and left on the ground. W itnesses who knew he was in bad shape when they tried to revive him and noticed the blood on the back of his head. How many times this has happened and everyone walked away the next day with a headache and some bruises is unknown. B ut,in this one incident,in this one case,the result was young mans life coming to an end far,far too soon. And no one called for those who could help. M aybe it is just too much of a hassle and its easier to snap a photo or take a video on your cell phone or post on F acebook than to dial 911. To everyone at that party who witnessed this and did not call in the authorities; to everyone who felt the need to scream outrage and justice in thes ocial media while spreading rumors a nd partial truths; to all those who now speak about how good a person Aaron Doty was but were too busy texting duri ng the fight to thumb three more numbers:911; to those who witnessed andd id not act ... shame on you all. For Gods sake, call 911 During the night that Aaron Doty was pummeled to death,the Highlands County Sheriffs Office reported there were no 911 calls from that address or from anyone who was there. The balance between the police and the policed is getting way out of whack and we better restore it now. I speak of a spate of new technologies high-tech cameras,satellites and now, drones being flown over U.S. soil that are giving police and government way too much power over the average Joe. Our country was founded by people who were wary of government power,you see. They were wary of government do-gooders attaining too much control,as they knew that absolute power always corrupts absolutely. So they implemented checks and balances to limit that power. They knew,too,however, that human nature is imperfect that there will always be crooks,murderers and con men and that government must provide average, law-abiding citizens with basic protections against those who seek to do them harm. Thus,our Constitution was designed to strike a proper balance between police and government agencies and the citizens they police. The Fourth Amendment in the Bill of Rights, for instance,guards against unreasonable searches and seizures. It requires probable cause and a judicially sanctioned warrant before the police are permitted to enter one's home. The idea was to protect the liberties of the average Joe by putting the burden on police and government agencies. Better that 10 guilty men go free than to convict a single innocent man. This proper balance between the police and the policed worked well for many years. But technology is upending that balance. Consider:Back in the '50s and '60s,when my father was a young man,there were speed traps,just as there are now. When one driver saw a police car hiding behind shrubs,he flashed his high beams at oncoming drivers to warn them to slow down. The policed collaborated against the police and all was well. The police had it tough back then. To gauge a driver's speed,an officer had to work a manual stopwatch,then do math. The process was so imprecise, the odds weren't bad that the ticket would be tossed out in court or reduced to a lesser charge. Now the police have precise VASCAR and radar technologies. Hidden speed cameras are popping up all over the place. New technologies are even making it possible to monitor speeds using satellites! While such technologies may benefit drivers by slowing traffic at dangerous intersections,there is a downside:The average Joe will soon be helpless in the face of small-town police who use such technologies to establish lucrative,high-tech speed traps. But as technology upends the balance between the police and the policed,that is the least of the average Joe's worries. Did you know our federal government is using unmanned aerial vehicles (dronese the drones it uses to monitor and kill enemies overseas to monitor U.S. citizens? Did you know,says Investor's Business Daily, that the EPA is conducting surveillance on farmers in Nebraska and Iowa,looking for violations of the Clean Water Act? Did you know that the Federal Aviation Administration has loosened restrictions on the use of drones by the nation's 18,000 local police departments? How long will it be before quiet little planes monitor our speed and everything else we do? How long before illegal searches,forbidden by the Fourth Amendment,are commonplace? We must stop the drones now. Flashing our high beams won't matter a whit once the balance between the police and the policed gets that far out of whack.

President Barack Obama and other Democratic Party headliners are set to be in Charlotte for the nominating soirie held every four years, which kicks off with a Labor Day party at a stock car track. The states governmentrun liquor stores are closed Sundays and for the Monday holiday,presenting a potential problem for bars,restaurants and hotels needing to replenish depleted alcohol stocks. The convention is expected to draw tens of thousands of people who will spend millions on food and libations. To the rescue is a bipartisan group of lawmakers in Raleigh sponsoring a bill to keep the Alcoholic Beverage Control stores in Mecklenburg County,which includes Charlotte,open for Labor Day 2012. Co-sponsored by Republicans and Democrats from the Charlotte area,the measure flowed through the state House last week on a voice vote and is awaiting approval in the Senate. Rep. Bill Brawley,a Mecklenburg Republican, said helping Charlotte be fully prepared to quench the thirsts of the arriving politicos and media horde is just good manners. The political party of the people attending is not material,said Brawley,one of the bills primary sponsors. Our state will treat them the way we would want our own people to be treated when they visit other states.

Seely said,we hope that people will come and see for themselves that this is not your grandfathers radio any more. In addition to operating on shortwavfrequencies with antennas designed to help maximize communications over long distances, the group will also be experimenting with a short skipinstallation, attempting to maintain reliable communications with locales normally reached best by VHF radios but which may be inaccessible that way in a worst case event. Seely said club members will communicate via voice and via computers connected to their radios and make contact with other participants in all fifty states,most Canadian provinces and more than a few foreign countries over the weekend.

They returned to their home aftert he crime,got some videos a nd were watching movies when law enforcement knocked on their door. They refused to surrender,and leftt o another area where state m arshals had to retrieve them. They have family in New York,Puerto Rico and other places,the state isr equesting no bond,Barone said. A bond of $100,000 was set for the charge of abuse of a dead body and bond of $100,000 was set for tampering with evidence for both defendants. Rittenour explained the other bond amounts were set in case a future judge made ad ifferent ruling on the murder charges. H ighlands County Sheriff Susan Benton announced Friday morning that morea rrests were coming in the case. I am aware of at least two imminent arrests coming,and I am sure there will be some more,Benton said. Whether they were the ones who went with them to theg as station or helped them destroy their clothes or drove t hem to Orlando,there will be more charges.

C M Y K Associated PressSAN ANTONIO A Texas teacher will lose her job after ordering more than 20 kindergartners to line up and hit a classmate accused of being a bully,a district spokesman said Friday. The teacher at a suburban San Antonio school is accused of orchestrating the slugfest after a younger teaching colleague went to her last month seeking suggestions on how to discipline the 6-year-old,according to a police report from the Judson Independent School District. Both teachers at Salinas Elementary were placed on paid administrative leave, though the one who allegedly arranged the punishment will not work for the district next school year,said district spokesman Steve Linscomb. Prosecutors are reviewing the allegations and will determine whether formal charges will be filed in 30 to 60 days. The police report alleges the teacher chose to show the child why bullying is bad by instructing his peers to Hit him!and Hit him harder!It also states that the second teacher intervened only after one of the children hit the boy hard on his upper back. wenty-four of those kids hit him and he said that most of them hit him twice,Amy Neely,the mother of 6-yearold Aiden,told KENS-TV. She did not specify what injuries her son may have received. Neely said her son is not a problem child and that this was the first shed heard of teachers having issues with him. She said she wants to make sure the teacher who ordered the hitting does not work in a classroom again. She doesnt need to be around any children,Neely told the television station.

C M Y K D ear Abby: Its Fathers Day and Id like to salute one particular unsung hero my dad. He was there for me and my sister despite a diffi-c ult workload throughout our childhood. He has always been generous with love and affection,and I have no doubt that he has sacrificed things he wanted personally for our benefit. Dad has been the calming voice during times of strife. He can fix anything from a broken washing machine to a broken heart. He has not only nurtured us,but our children as well. He has been our role model when it comes to setting an example of what a man,husband,father and grandfather should be. He is never judgmental and has always shown us the best in ourselves. Hes consistent in his love of God,country and family. He is patient,kind, generous and smart in waysI only wish I could be. To top it off,he found us the best mother we could have hoped for.They have been married 58 years. My unsung hero doesnt wear a cape,but I do believe he has certainly earned a halo. Sharon in Brandon Dear Sharon: What a sweet letter. Im printing it to honor not only your father but also the millions of men who dedicate themselves daily to raising their children with love and support. In addition,d like to extend a Happy Fathers Day to fathers everywhere not only birth fathers but also stepfathers,foster fathers and those caring individuals who mentor youngsters whose parents are absent or deceased. Bless you all. Dear Abby: Will you please help librarians across the country clarify something that is generally misrepresented to the public? Patrons who need assistance operating a computer may be able to get help at their local library.Thats may,not can.Too often, people are instructed to go to their library and use a computer to file taxes,redeem a gift,print pictures,etc. The fact is,not every library has computers with Internet access. Most do,but not all. Further,many libraries lack sufficient staff to offer one-on-one support to operate a computer. To someone who is proficient,it may s eem strange that a person cant simply lay a hand on a mouse and go. The reality is, computers and the Internet are not intuitive to thosew ho havent been exposed to them and there are many. While I dont know of a librarian who wouldnt like to offer unlimited assistance to computer users,libraries nationwide are losing staff due to budget cuts. At the same time,use of libraries is steadily increasing. Its frustrating to disappoint patrons who expect to receive instruction in computer operation. We prefer they leave our building happy. So,Abby,please spread the word. Computers and Internet services vary from library to library. Readers should ask their librarian about what services are available at their local branch.

Solution on page 7B The announcement Daddysh ome!brought a flurry of excitement to our house as our boys ran to greet Ken at thed oor. The boys would have special stories to tell him or things they wantedt o do with him. But, always,those words brought joy and security to our family. I see the same thing with our sons and their families.H ow the children love to know that Daddy is home. T hey like doing things with him. How great to know how our oldest grandson,W alter,is helping his Dad to create a backyard gard en. This young man of almost 15 has always had the heart of a helper. Hes eager to dig in (no puni ntended!) and be part of whatever is going on. T hough he is praised for his efforts,I have rarely seen that as the motivation.H e simply likes to help. On those occasions when D ad had to travel for his job and be away from home for a week,the kidsd idnt relish his leaving. And their biggest joy was going to the airport to pick h im up. Recently,another of our s ons had to tell his boy he would be gone a few weeks. Having experienced long deployments,his dad told him this one would bee asier. He answered,s never easy.His homecoming is imminent and is reflect-e d in our grandsons happy voice. My Mom kept the home fires burning brightlyw hen my Dad worked many hours to provide for us. We missed him,too. So even s imply watching a TV program together in the evening gave us a sense of security and togetherness. One shift meant that he worked from the afternoont ill about midnight. On those weeks,we came h ome from school at lunch time to have a sit-down meal with Dad. G od has given our fathers to us to provide, g uide,love and protect. His role is so important that in Ephesians 6:1,NKJV,God speaks directly to children when he says,Children,o bey your parents in the Lord,for this is right. Honor your father and mother,which is the first commandment with prom-i se:that it may be well with you and you may live l ong on the earth. And God then calls on fathers to bring up theirc hildren in the training and counsel of the Lord. When this is done in the home a nd through church,our children learn who they are a nd what God expects of them. So,welcome Daddy home. He is special.

Lady Gaga wore a traditional Thai headdress and a bikini and sat on a motorcycle with a Thai flag tied to it. The ministry says the act was not appropriate and hurt the feelings of the Thai people. The ministrys Permanent Secretary Somchai Seanglai says his agency gave police a summary of public complaints it received.

We are fortunate in Florida to have the familiar s ight of these bright bugs on many evenings. Each subs pecies of firefly flashes light in a unique pattern. And what most people dont know is that fireflies are actually beetles,nocturnalm embers of the family Lampyridae. These amazing insects produce the most efficient lights in the world. In fact 100 percent of the energy is emitted as light.I ncandescent light bulbs only emit 10 percent of their e nergy as light. The remainder is used up as heat. A fireflys light does not produce heat and is referred to as cold light.Firefliesh ave dedicated light organs that are located under their abdomens. The fireflys tail has two chemicals:luciferase andl uciferin. Luciferase is an enzyme that triggers light emission. Luciferin is heat resistant and it glows under the right conditions. All living organisms contain a chemical called ATP,which converts energy. In the firefly,the ATP initiates the glow we see. In many cases,even the eggs of the firefly emit light and glow. The reason these flashy bugs produce the light is mostly to attract mates. They also communicate with the lights. The male will fly and flash while the female usually waits in a nearby tree or shrub until she sees the male she wants. Once she spots him,she signals with a flash of light. These bugs are carnivores and usually munch on snails and worms. Some species even consume other fireflies. Many species of fireflies will even imitate other species to attract females or scare off competing males. About 2,000 species of fireflies exist and they live in a variety of warm climates. Most fireflies have wings and prefer humid,moist areas. If they do reside in drier climates,they will be found around wet or damp places that r etain moisture. An adultf irefly only lives long enough to m ate and lay eggs. M any fireflies dont eat at all while in their adults tage. Fireflies hibernate during the larval stage,which occurs in winter. Some species are in this state for several years. They burrow underground or under theb ark of trees and emerge in the spring. They feed for s everal weeks and then pupate for up to two and a half weeks before becoming adults. Fortunately for the firef lies,they are distasteful and even poisonous to most predators. When attacked, they shed drops of blood which contains chemicalst hat taste bad and can be poisonous to some animals. Most animals have learned to avoid these bitter bugs at all costs. Firefly light is usually intermittent and scientists are not sure how the insects regulate this process to turn their lights on and off. There are many theories; however some things in nature remain a mystery to us. These amazing creatures are disappearing at an alarming rate all over the world. Scientists believe their decline is due to habitat encroachment and increased light pollution. But dont fret,you can make a difference. A few small steps can bring these magical creatures to your area. The first thing that is very easy to accomplish is simply turning off your outside lights at night. If there is too much light in an area, the fireflys flashes will be disrupted making it harder for the insects to mate and breed. Plant a few trees or leave some downed logs for them to have a place to grow in their larvae stage. Fireflies love water and wet areas. Provide some moist habitats such as ponds or small depressions they c an hang out around. Dont spray chemicals especially at night. Manyp opulations of fireflies have been wiped out because of spraying for mosquitoes at n ight when fireflies are active. Spray for mosquitoes d uring the day and use larvacides to prevent the growth and development of these pesky insects in drainage ditches. Use natural fertilizers when possible. Dont over-mow your lawn. Fireflies stay on the ground during the day.You can still have a nice looking lawn and leave a few areas,m aybe around the edges, where the fireflies can hang o ut. Get worms. Firefly larvae love to attack and eat earthworms. If you take time to introduce worms to yourg ardens and lawns it will provide a food source and encourage fireflies. Earthworms also help keep your soil healthy,so this is aw in-win.Did you know?If you want to catch a firefly,you have to think like a firefly. Make sure youre in a dark area and turn off any outside lights nearby. Get a good flashlight and shine it up and down or repeat any type of light patterns that the bugs are emitting. Dont shine the light at the bug or it may scare it away. If you do happen to catch one or more,make sure to place them in a clear jar with a lid that allows air inside. Also make sure to place a moist paper towel inside to keep the air humid. Be careful,these bugs are fragile and can be hurt fairly easily. Its easier to have two people; one to net the bug and one to get it in the jar. Once you have enjoyed observing them,let them go. Dont keep them longer thana day and release them at night.

Its natural to assume that ecoscaping includes looking for ways to reduce reliance on chemical pesticides, but there are many additional ways homeowners can embrace ecoscaping.Th is includes removing or refusing to plant invasive plants that are difficult to control because they are from different e cosystems and can threaten local w ildlife and existing plants. Instead of choosing exotic plants that arent native to the area, choose native plants that are accustomed to the local climate. Another way to embrace ecoscaping is to develop a planting strategy wherein plants are planted in beneficial growing conditions that can eliminate theneed for chemical fertilizers and excessive watering.

Call 314-9876 By CHRISTY LEMIRE A P Movie CriticL OS ANGELES Rock of Ages revels in the big hair and tight leather pants of a very specific place and time: the Sunset Strip in 1987,when bands like Guns NRoses and Poison gott heir start. But a lot of great movies came out that year,too. Here are five of them; I would have included The Princess Bridebut I already find reasons to mention it every other week:F ull Metal JacketO ne of Stanley Kubricks best and I really should find a reason to compile that list one of these days t his Vietnam War drama lulls you in with its humor in the first half,then blows you away with its brutality in thes econd. Kubrick follows a group of Marines t hrough boot-camp training,under the verbally abusive but hilariously profane watch of their demanding drill sergeant,p layed by R. Lee Ermey in the persona that would become his signature. B ut then they must take what theve learned and apply it in pressure-cooker urban warfare situations. Full Metal Jacketis raw and visceral in its details,yet surreal and dreamlike in itsm ood. And it provides an early glimpse of the intensity and immersion weve c ome to expect from Vincent DOnofrio,committing himself completely here to the role of the slow-wit-t ed private nicknamed Gomer Pyle.Raising ArizonaStill one of my all-time favorites from the Coen brothers and a great e xample of the off-kilter vibe that arose from their brief collaboration with t hen-cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld. At times,this screwball comic romance feels like a live-action cartoon,with its odd characters and larger-t han-life predicaments. The baby point-of-view shots alone g ive the movie both a playful energy and a genuine feeling of danger. I s silly and super-stylized but it also works in its smaller moments,as evidenced by Nicolas Cages quietlyu nhinged performance as a philosophical career criminal who promises to go s traight and secure a baby for his yearning police officer wife (Holly Hunter).Moonstruckve always enjoyed the balance that director Norman Jewison and Oscar-w inning screenwriter John Patrick Shanley strike here. This is a movie t hats unabashedly old-fashioned and sweet but with a no-nonsense and slightly shaggy streak. Everyone feelsw hat they feel so intensely,they must be under some sort of magical spell. And yet the film affectionately teases t hem for being the fools that theve become. Heres Cage again as a man f ull of impulses,driven by the passion he feels for the luminous Cher,who tries not to love him back because shes engaged to marry Cages brother (Danny Aiello). Moonstruckis a romantic comedy for people who dont usually like romantic comedies. Less Than ZeroA lurid depiction of the drugs and d ecadence of the time. Having grown up in Los Angeles in the 1980s,I can attest that this is not necessarily what it was like not in my tame little corner of the San Fernando Valley,wheres neaking wine coolers felt rebellious. Ah,but on the other side of the hill, everyone was rich and sophisticated and stylishly tormented at least through novelist Bret Easton Ellise yes. This early Robert Downey Jr. performance showed glimmers of the quick wit and emotional depth that con-t inue to be his trademarks. Ed Lachmanns cinematography made sunny L.A. seem dangerous and seamy.A nd it had a great soundtrack including The Banglesinsanely catchy cover of Hazy Shade of Winterand the LL Cool J classic GoinBack to Cali.Dirty DancingThis is a nostalgic choice,admittedly. I probably should have picked something artsier and more respectedl ike The Last Emperor,which won nine Academy Awards including best p icture. But looking back,which film left the most enduring mark on the culture,on the era? Of the five listed here,i s Dirty Dancing,far and away. Hugely crowd-pleasing with an infect ious energy and a vivid sense of place, this became an international phenomenon,and its easy to see why. Its justf un. Great music,great choreography. Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze are lovely together,even though on paper t hey make absolutely no sense as a couple. And we all learned that nobody p uts Baby in a corner. You just dont do it.

The hardest part:learning not to bark at the mailman. Dolly is one of millions of dogs t hat accompany their owners to dog-friendly businesses every day. Even more will join her Friday for Take Your Dog to Work Day. I consider it a benefit like h ealth care. Its a huge attraction, said Dollys owner Erin McCormack,who works at Authentic Entertainment in Los Angeles as a producer on theD iscovery Channels Auction Kings. McCormack and her Maltese m ix walk together before work and at lunch to get some exercise,and McCormack saves money on thed og walker or daycare she would otherwise need. Its such a great way to create a productive atmosphere. It makes the environment more conducive toc reativity,she said,at a company that produces shows like the Food N etworks The Best Thing I Ever Ate,TLCs Toddlers & Tiaras and Bravs Flipping Out. At the same time,McCormack added,They are a calming force.W hen things get stressful,you can lean down and pet your dog or take a walk and pet a nearby dog. Youg et a more efficient workplace,one thats not consumed with stress. About 1.4 million owners take some 2.3 million dogs to work every day,according to anA merican Pet Products Association survey last year. When the group last surveyed businesses,in 2006,one in five was dog-friendly.That number isp robably holding steady if you include one-person offices,workat-home pet owners and retail shops,said Len Kain,co-founder and editor of DogFriendly.com,w hich lists dog-friendly companies in every state. Some of the nations largest e mployers are dog-friendly like Google Inc. and Amazon.com. Keeping employees happy is one oft he main reasons cited by employers. Engineering and software companies are often the type of company that is pet-friendly,Kain said. These companies have trouble finding people with the skills they n eed and do not want to lose these employees. Extrovertic,a health care communications agency with 40 employees and offices in New YorkC ity and Cambridge,Mass.,tested t he waters last year with TakeYour Dog to Work Day. On June 22 this year,it is sponsored by NorthC arolina-based Pet Sitters International to promote adoption. T he experiment was so successful that the company went dogfriendly and Sally,a 5-year-old res-c ue beagle owned by supervising account manager Jared Shechtman, b ecame TakeYour Dog to Work Days poster dog. e are a small agency.We want to be different. We want the quality of our employeeslives to be bettert han they would get at a bigger a gency. Having dogs in the office is another way of saying,e are different and we care about you,s aid company CEO Dorothy Wetzel. F ifteen to 20 of the 120 employees or freelancers working at Authentic Entertainment bring theird ogs to work,said co-founder and executive producer Lauren Lexton. L exton and Tom Rogan decided to let people bring dogs to work when they founded the company 11 years ago,because it always felt right. Dogs give a softer element toe veryday work and there is something about having them around that makes people happy. W hen you have great people, you want to keep them forever,she explained,so if they have a dog thats used to coming to work,the person is less likely to accept ab etter job offer if it comes along. Having animals around also encourages camaraderie, McCormack said. Dogs automatically break down barriers. They area utomatic conversation starters and ice breakers. Not every business can allow dogs,said Kain,who started DogFriendly.com with his wifeT ara 15 years ago. For others, allowing pets may be a way to help make do with fewer employeesw orking longer hours. By allowing dogs at work,an employee doesnt have to leave to take careo f the pet,Kain said. At Authentic Entertainment, D ollys biggest hurdle was deliverymen. She has always had a fear of carts and boxes and people inu niform,McCormack said. She introduced Dolly to A uthentics maintenance man,and because Dolly still barked and growled at outside deliverymen, McCormack asked for a heads-up call from the front desk when theya rrived. Good dog, good job? More dogs sit, stay at work MCT More companies are allowing employees to bring their dogs to the office.

Here are some of thep rices and wait times they encountered,along with assorted challenges and surprises. Meals were purchased from vendors and cafes in tourist areas. Each category listsh ighest prices first.T axiFrom international airport to central tourist area: T okyo: $82.40,20 minutes (from Haneda Airport,used by a growing number of international tourists.F are from Narita Airport runs $300).

Crowded but no line.Public spacesFor free,our reporters enjoyed Central Park in New York; Ueno Park in Tokyo; Tuileries Gardens inP aris; the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires,which is often filled with p rotesters and is a hub of political life since the 1810 revolution that led to Argentinas independencef rom Spain; and the Dubai Waterway,which leads to the old s ouk or marketplace,filled with winding alleys,glittering gold shops,merchants selling spices,i ncense,carpets,textiles and pots and pans,and an endless number of v endors hawking watches.DinnerParis: Glass of chardonnay and steak tartare,$29 at Cafe B eaubourg near the Pompidou Centre.

I was. Thats just one interesting nugget revealed at the sixth annualF inancial Literacy and Education Summit recently hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Visa Inc. Renowned U.S. and international financial experts tack-l ed the theme,International Solutions to Improving Financial Literacy,sharing succ esses and challenges faced in their own countries,as well as presenting new r esearch that explores ways that financial knowledge and behavior can be improved. J anet Bodner,editor of Kiplingers Personal Finance, shared findings from the 2012 Global Financial Barometer,a new study cosponsored by Kiplingersa nd Visa. Some global 25,500 participants were asked about their personal financial habits and opinions. Assessing that data,the Barometer ranked the financial literacy levels o f people in 28 countries. Among the more Improving financial literacy, here and abroad Recent changes in the r egulation and employment of H-2A workers have increased the costsa nd risks associated with harvesting crops. In 2010, the revised ImmigrationC ode was enacted. Many farms and grove owners w ere left feverishly searching for workers. At first glance,the H-2Ar equirements and procedure can be overwhelmi ng. Understandably, many employers are reluctant to take on the monster that is the H-2A process; however,oncet he process is underway it can relieve much of the p ressures burdening the harvesting process. With the right help,the processc an be streamlined and become much easier to u nderstand. The revisions place more responsibility on the e mployer and reinstate the labor certification requirement.

C M Y K interesting findings: Brazil topped the list as having the most financially literate people,followed by Mexico,Australia,the United States and Canada. 68 percent of survey respondents had fewer than three monthsworth of emergency reserves to fund basic needs during an unexpected financial event like job loss. 25% of high-income respondents had less than three months of living expenses in savings. In the United States,for example, the average person had only 2.9 months of expenses saved. Mexico and Brazil topped the list of places that parents talk to their kids ages 5 to 17 about money most often,with Mexicans talking to their kids at least 41.7 days a year and Brazilians 38.1. American families were in the middle of the pack at about 25.8 days out of the year. When asked at what age governments should require schools to teach financial literacy,U.S. respondents ranked near the bottom at 11.9 years. By comparison, more than half of Brazilians surveyed believe such education should begin before age 9. In over half the countries,a majority believe that teens and young adults do not understand financial basics,such as budgeting, savings,debt and spending responsibly. Bodner noted that these results add to our body of knowledge about financial literacy. ou first have to identify what the problems are in your particular country,city or school,and then determine what is effective in handling those situations, she said. A more detailed summary of the Barometers key findings can be found at www.practicalmoneyskills.co m/barometer. William Walstad,an Economics professor at University of NebraskaLincoln,presented another interesting study that showed that people who scored poorly on a financial literacy test but were confident in their money-management abilities exhibited similar abilities to manage credit cards as did those with stronger test skills; while those who had high test scores but lacked confidence displayed much more negative credit behavior. Walstad said these findings suggest that building confidence has a strong role to play in financial education. Bottom line:The panelists agreed that all of the countries represented share many of the same challenges for boosting financial literacy including gaining wide access for programs to be tested,evaluating their results,and the fact that each has very diverse populations with different needs at different periods in their lives.

By KAY JOHNSON Associated PressB AGHDAD (APs rapidly expanding oil production is likely to complicate OPECs efforts to influence world prices as the countryr e-emerges as a major player after 20 years on the sidelines due to sanctions and strife. For now,Iraq is backing Irans push for OPEC to setl ower production limits and keep prices high,but Baghdads own ambitious plans for expansion could cause an overall production growth that might drive downp rices. Analysts say Iraqs new c lout is shifting the power balance in the 12-member Organization of theP etroleum Exporting Countries and could force it t o overhaul its intricate production quota system to accommodate Baghdads rapid expansion. Iraq recently reached oil p roduction of 3 million barrels per day,a level not seen s ince the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that ousted dictator Saddam Hussein. T he country is on track to become OPECs secondl argest producer in the coming year,surpassing Iran and trailing only Saudi Arabia. Iraq,for all intents and purposes,could double its production in next five years, c ould go from 3 million barrels a day to 6 million barrels a day,said energy analyst Fadel Gheit,managing director of consultancy Oppenheimer & Co. in New York. No other OPEC country has the ability and capacity to do that. Oil prices are determined by many factors,but chief among them is supply and demand. For decades,OPECh as tried to control oil prices by limiting production. A dditional production from Iraq,unless offset by reductions from other cartel members,could drive oil prices down. B ut OPEC politics are not that straightforward. At Thursdays OPEC meeti ng in Vienna,Iraq used its newfound influence to side with its political ally,Iran,a gainst Saudi Arabia,which has been increasing output. I ran,hard hit by economic sanctions over its suspect nuclear program,wants mem-b ers to cut back production to hike prices. OPEC compromised Thursday,deciding to k eep its overall production target at the same level. I raq also emphasized its comeback within OPEC by pushing its own candidate for secretary-general during Thursdays meeting inV ienna. It reflects the fact that Iraq is saying Look guys,its changed. Wre not the permanent problem child of OPEC anymore,said Samuel Ciszuk,an analystw ith KBC Energy Economics in London. T he Iraqi candidate, Thamer al-Ghadhban,67,led Iraqs oil ministry during part of the U.S. occupation and is considered a well-qualifiedc andidate,though the groups politics are likely to tip the b alance toward an Ecuadorian nominee when it decides in December. T he last time Iraq had this much voice in OPEC, S addam Hussein was still in power and the country had just fought the 1980-88 war against Iran that killed as many as a million people onb oth sides. Iran and Iraq were rivals in OPEC then,bickering over who should give up the most in the production quotas to control world prices. Much has changed. Now, I rans theocratic Shiite Muslim government is one of t he major allies of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who leads a secular but Shiite-dominated coalition government. A t OPEC this week,Iraq sided with Iran in pushing for h igher prices through lowering overall production. For now,thats in Baghdads best i nterest,since 95 percent of its government revenues c ome from oil. Iraqs return to petroleum prominence was not supposed to take this long. Before the U.S.-led invasion,officials inP resident George W. Bushs administration said that the countrys oil exports,long hampered by international sanctions,would recover quickly and possibly even pay for the war. L ike much in the Iraq war, that didnt work out as planned,and the spiralingv iolence that followed decimated oil production. I n the last year,a rapid expansion of oil production has been a rare positive signi n a troubled democracy still facing spasms of violence. Iraqi oil exports have g rown from an average 1.9 million barrels a day average i n 2009 to about 2.5 million barrels a day in May.That is about the same level that Iran was exporting last year,but Tehrans exports are nowd own to less than 1.8 million barrels per day now because of American sanctions,U.S. officials estimate. With 143.1 billion barrels of proven oil reserves the fourth-largest in OPEC I raq has plenty of room to grow in both production and exports. I raqs rapid expansion in coming years could wreak havoc with OPECs system of production quotas intended to control prices,according to a nalyst Ciszuk. The organization wavers between individual country quotas and the current system of an overall production limit f or all countries,which it decided Thursday to keep at 30 million barrels a day. In recent decades,Iraqs oil h asnt figured in that system b ecause its exports were underperforming. But once it surpasses Iran a nd tops 5 or 6 million barrels p er day in production,OPEC members will demand that Iraq rejoin the quota system, probably within two or three years. With Iraq pumping 3 or 4 million extra barrels a day, o ther countries would face t he choice of either cutting their own quotas to accommodate Iraq or raising the overall production level. Its ambitious expansion goals and contracts with major oil companies depend on pumping more and moreo il,so Iraqs own self-interest in coming years is likely to r everse its stance of pushing for production cuts despite its political relationship with Iran. In the end,you know,it tends to be the money that decides a lot of these things, Ciszuk said. Associated Press writers Sinan S alaheddin in Baghdad and George Jahn in Vienna contributed.

C M Y K a work order to the State W orkforce Agency; second, an approved work order must be sent to the D epartment of Labor (DOL e r must attempt to recruit U.S. workers; finally, an approved labor certification must be forward to United States Customs andI mmigration Services (USCISThat is the process in a nutshell, however there are intricate details within each step that make or break the process. Moreover, denials wille xtend the processing time and any delays can be very c ostly. The federal government has initiated a crackdown on employers and punishments range from fines to shut-d owns. This year alone, 100 employers have been arrested and fines are nearing $5,000,000. Not only is Department of HomelandS ecurity (DHS its investigations of the agricultural labor force, but it is working closely with DOLto u ncover violations. Thus, an e mployer may face double penalties for every undocumented worker. In a sense, the employers choice is to accept the H-2Aprocess or potentially lose their busi-n ess. By complying with the regulations, employers can stop worrying about the status of their workers and go back to running their businesses. With the right legal counsel and service, everye mployer can have the satisfaction of knowing that they are doing everything possi-b le to protect their business. In this writers opinion, the protection provided by compliance with the regulations will prove to be priceless. B ecause the H-2Aprocess is time consuming, it is i mportant to get started early. This seasons harvesti ng may be coming to a close, but now is the best t ime to proactively seek workers for next season. The process can take three to five months depending on where the employer is in the H-2A process. Therefore, now is the best time to start plann ing for next season. I encourage all employers to work with an Immigration Attorney to ensure that they are correctly completing the H-2Aapplications and effectively overseeing on-goingc ompliance. Upfront costs of compliance may seem e xtravagant, but noncompliance can be financially and otherwise devastating. Oncet he employers H-2Aprocedure is in place, there will b e plenty of time to reap the rewards. Stephanie M. Rosin is an attorn ey with the Karlson Law Group in Lake Placid.

D ocuments filed Friday show the back-and-forth the social-networking company h ad with the Securities and Exchange Commission on a variety of issues. As all companies do, Facebook Inc. amended its regulatoryd ocuments several times ahead of its initial public offering of stock. But the communications leading to those changes werent pub-l ic until now. Facebook Inc. disclosed i ts letters with the SEC in regulatory filings Friday.T he filings are a usual part of the IPO process. The letters are typically confident ial until about 30 days following an IPO. Facebooks IPO took place May 17. The communications in the months leading toF acebooks IPO have received greater scrutiny in p art because of investor concerns about the companys ability to make moneyf rom its growing mobile audience. Facebooks stock p rice has lost a quarter of its value since the IPO. Many analysts, however, hold posi tive long-term opinions. Facebook faces more than 40 lawsuits over the IPO. The lawsuits allege that analysts at the large underwrit-i ng investment banks cut their second-quarter and full-year forecasts for Facebook just before the IPO and told only a handfulo f clients. Facebook has called the lawsuits without m erit. In a separate filing F riday, the company sought to consolidate the lawsuits in New York and laid the g roundwork for its case, arguing that it did not violate any rules and followed customary practice throughout the process. M uch of the SECs questions asked Facebook to c larify or explain things better. In its first letter in February, the SEC askedF acebook what it would mean if more of its users a ccessed the site through mobile devices rather than traditional computers. The S EC wanted Facebook to fully address the potential consequences to your revenue and financial results rather than just stating thatt hey may be negatively affected. At first, Facebook said that users could decide to access the site on mobiled evices. The SEC responded that they already do. T hat led Facebook to amend its documents onM ay 9 the week before the IPO. SEC questioned Facebook about Zynga, mobile By ANICK JESDANUN APTechnology WriterNEWYORK The organization in charge of introducing new Internet addresses to rival .com briefly suspended access to some of the documents on its website after a privacy gaffe. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers said it had mistakenly published the postal addresses of some individuals information that was meant to be private. The disclosure was limited to cities and countries in some cases, while full street addresses appeared in others. The discovery came late Thursday, a day after ICANN revealed nearly 2,000 proposals for new Internet suffixes, including .joy .barefoot and .google. It will be the largest expansion of the Internet address system since its creation in the 1980s. ICANN posted documents with the proposals to allow the public to comment and raise objections. The documents include biddersplans for the new names and full contact information for the businesses involved, but they were supposed to list only phone and email information belonging to individuals. ICANN restored those documents after removing the postal addresses on individuals. It was not immediately clear how long that took; the documents appeared to be inaccessible for no more than a few hours. ICANN did not immediately respond to requests for more information Friday. This spring, ICANN had to suspend access to its system for letting bidders submit proposals after it discovered technical glitches that exposed some private data. That took more than a month to fix and restore. ICANN also goofed during Wednesdays announcement. It displayed Arabic names left to right rather than right to left, as the language is written. The latest gaffe provided more fodder for critics of ICANN and the name expansion. Privacy gaffe found in Internet address bids

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentT here is no greater love on this earth than the loves hared between a girl and her horse. S ebrings Bailey Vickers was born in the saddle, decided to take up rodeo in the s ixth grade and, needless to s ay, she was quickly hooked. Now, more than six years later, Vickers plans on packing her spurs and schoolbooks as she continues her education as well as her rodeo career in Texas, attendi ng Weatherford College. Contrary to popular belief, rodeo is not just about barrel r acing and bull riding. Vickers is currently clocking around an 8-9 second run in goat tying, an event inw hich she shoots out the gate to later dismount her galloping horse to tie together the l egs of a goat at the other end of the arena. She also clocks an impressive 2-3 second run in breaka way roping, much like the popular image of rodeo in which the rider ropes a runaway calf and, once she has done so, the rope snaps when the calf pulls away, marking the end of the run. Ever versatile and very skilled with a rope, Vickers also competes in team roping. Team roping involves two riders, one that first ropes the runaway calfs front and the other to rope the two hind feet all while the animal tries to escape just to give a little insight into the athletic ability and horsemanship it takes to compete. I do different rodeo associations around Florida and we meet at different arenas across Florida once or sometimes twice a month and compete, she explained. The season is from August to May and then the top four in each event go to nationals in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Vickers has been honored with a number of titles as a result of her success, including being selected for the Bloomer Trailer High school Rodeo Team. It is a nationwide team and they pick three kids from each event to compete in Shawnee, OK at the International Youth Finals. Vickers explains. I have been on the team for three years for breakaway roping, which is my favorite event.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe Florida Athletic Coaches Association released itsAll-State and AllAcademic Baseball teams on Thursday, with five from H ighlands County making the cut. Among the Class 4Ateam members from throughout the state, Avon Parks Lane Crosson and Tyrone Perry were named to the All-State squad. Crosson was a dual threat, going 6-1 on the mound, with three saves, a 2.51 ERA, s triking out 50 in 53 innings pitched and pitching in 16 of the Red Devils 26 games. He also batted .302 on the season, with 17 RBI and three triples and shined on defense as well. He made big play after big play, head coach Whit Cornell said. Hes the kind of player coaches dream of.

Seminoles coach says no one to blame in CWS loss See FSU, Page 4D By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI Shane Battier is in the NBAFinals for the first time. Maybe its no coincidence that its bringing out his best play of the season. Battier has scored 17 points in each of the two finals games against the Oklahoma City Thunder, though thats hardly where the list of recent accomplishments end for the 11year Duke veteran. Hes scored at least 12 points in three consecutive games for the first time since December 2010. And hes 13 for 22 from 3-point range over that span, a far cry from his 14for-59 slump that lasted for about six weeks late in the regular season. NBAfinals. No use in saving your shots now Battier said. Let it fly The first points of the 2012 finals? They came on a 3-pointer by Battier. The first points of Game 2? Same thing. Forget LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for a moment. Battier appears to be perhaps the most problematic matchup for the Thunder, given how he thinks nothing of banging around inside with bigger players defensively, but forces those same bigger guys to stretch to the 3-point line when the Heat have the basketball. Hes been good most of the time, and a little lucky at others. One of the biggest if not the biggest shots for Miami in its Game 2 win at Oklahoma City on Thursday night was a 3pointer that Battier hit with 5:08 left, pushing what had been a rapidly dwindling Heat lead out to 90-83. Wasnt exactly a shooterstouch Battier banked it in from about 26 feet away. But it worked. s been a huge lift, James said. Hes been a huge lift for us.

Just ask Tiger Woods, David Toms and Jim Furyk now. The trio of major champions entered Saturdays third round tied for the lead at 1 under, a rather ordinary number in any other week. Not even one other player in the field that began at 156 cracked par, w hich is shaping up to be a final score that might be all it takes to win. I dont see it getting much away from that, said Graeme McDowell, the 2010 champion at Pebble Beach who is two shots back of the leaders. As this golf course gets firmer and firmer, theres no rain forecast. Its up to the USGA, really. They can have whatever they want with it. Nobody has had their way with Olympic, including defending champion Rory McIlroy. The Northern Irishman set a U.S. Open record last year at Congressional with a 131 through 36 holes. He was 19 shots worse at Olympic, with a 73 giving him a two-day score of 150 to miss the cut for the fourth time in his last five tournaments. They set it up like a real classic U .S. Open, McIlroy said. Those who have adjusted are the ones still around for the weekend. Woods survived a patch of b ogeys early in his round for an even 70 that took him another round c loser to that elusive 15th major t itle. Furyk rolled in a 40-foot birdie putt from off the third green in the morning for a 69. Woods and Toms, who showed a steady hand with the putter for a 70, joined him in the afternoon when the conditions were fiery and emotions were frayed. They were the only players to beat par for 36 holes at 1-under 139. This tournament, youre just plodding along, Woods said. This is a different tournament. You have to stay patient, stay present, and youre just playing for a lot of pars. This is not a tournament where we have to make a bunch of birdies. Awild and wacky afternoon ended that way, too. T he second-round leaders restored some sanity to a major that for a brief and stunning moment had been taken over by a 17-year-old who only two weeks ago couldnt win his state high school championship. Beau Hossler went 11 holes without making a bogey, and took the outright lead on one of the toughest holes at Olympic. He got lost in the thick rough and trees on the brutal front nine, dropping five shots in eight holes for a 73 that left him four shots behind. That wasnt the only surprise. Also leaving San Francisco far earlier than anyone expected were Luke Donald, the worlds topranked player, Masters champion Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson, coming off a win last week at the St. Jude Classic. It hasnt taken much at this U.S. Open to swallow up even the bestp layers. When the last group trudged up the hill toward the stately clubhouse at Olympic, the experience at the t op of the leaderboard was impossible to ignore. Whoever wins this golf tournam ent is going to be a great champion, somebody thats probably won events before, that can handle the emotions and can handle the adversity in a U.S. Open, and somebody with experience, said Toms, who won the 2001 PGAChampionship at Atlanta Athletic Club. At least thats what I think. You never know. Strange things can happen, but I would think that you would see a lot of that on the leaderboard come late Sunday It starts with Woods, who is coming off his second win of the year at the Memorial and looks as strong as ever. Hitting shots in both directions, mainly with irons off the tees, he overcame three straight bogeys on his front nine, two of those shots not far off from being easy birdie chances. His only regret was not taking advantage of having a wedge in his hand on the last three holes, all birdie opportunities that became pars. When he regained a share of the lead with Furyk on the 13th with a 4-foot birdie putt, Woods was coming up on a series of holes that allowed players to at least think of making birdie. In a greenside bunker in two on the par-5 16th shortened to 609 yards Friday Woods blasted out weakly and missed a 12-foot putt. W ith a mid-iron in his hand in the fairway on the par-5 17th, he went over the green and down a deep slope. Despite a superb pitch to 8 feet, he missed the putt. And with a wedge from the fairway on the 18th, he came up well short and into a bunker, having tos ettle for par. Pars arent bad, though. McDowell dropped three shots on his last four holes for a 72. E ven so, he was very much in the hunt two shots behind at 141, along w ith recent LSU alum John Peterson (70 B elgium (69 Thompson, the first-round leader who followed his opening 66 with a 75. Its just tough to have fun out there, McDowell said. Woods had won eight straight times when he had at least a share o f the lead going into the weekend at the majors, a streak that ended at t he 2009 PGAChampionship when Y.E. Yang chased him down from f our shots back. Woods hasnt seriously conten de d in the final hour of a major since then. If they want 5 over to win, 10 over to win it ... they can hide these p ins away, McDowell said.

We really clicked and he has helped me roping a lot and he has a lot of speed. When asked what drew her to Texas, Vickers explained that she wanted to rodeo in the southwest region, where Weatherford College happens to fall. Weatherford is also a sort of home-away-from-home, as many of her close friends are in the area including her best friend Kylie Hamilton who will also be attending.

Current Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith, Green B ay defensive end Anthony Hargrove and Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita will have their appeals heard Monday by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. e have followed the procedures set forth in the CBAon appeals of commissioner discipline, league spokesman Greg Aiello said. Those procedures include the parties exchanging copies of any exhibits upon which they intend to rely no later than three calendar days prior to the hearing, Aiello added. Evidence presented included some 200 pages of documents, with emails, power-point presentations, even hand-written notes, plus one video recording. But a ledger that reportedly documents payments of $1,000 for plays called cartoffs and $400 for whacks, as well as $100 fines for mental errors, was not in the material. Vilma has been suspended for the 2012 season, while Smith got four games. Hargrove was suspended for eight games and Fujita f or three. Previously, Goodell suspended Saints coach Sean Payton for the season and assistant coach Joe Vitt for six games. Saints general manager Mickey Loomis got eight games, while former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams who has apologized for his role in the scandal was suspended indefinitely. Vilmas lawyers, Peter Ginsberg, said the evidence the league provided did little more than reflect Williamsa pproach to firing up his players. The league provided no evidence to us in a timely manner, said Ginsberg, who also is representing Vilma in a defamation lawsuit against Goodell. It has provided n o evidence to corroborate the accusations, and yet the NFL furthermore has told us it doesnt plan to present any w itness at the hearing. Ginsberg said requests by the playersunion to have Payton, Williams and Vitt at Mondays hearing were ignored by the league. Aiello said the league is not commenting on the details or potential details of Mondays proceeding. The players already have lost two grievances filed with arbitrators that challenged Goodells authority to impose punishments in the bounty cases. The NFLs investigation of the Saints found Williams ran a system for three years in which bounties were set on targeted opponents, including Brett Favre and Kurt Warner. The program was in effect from 2009, when New O rleans won the Super Bowl, until last season. AP Sports Writer Brett Martel in New Orleans contributed to t his story.

C M Y K B y BRIAN MAHONEY Associated PressOKLAHOMACITY Kevin Durant had the ball in his hands and LeBron James in his face. With 10 seconds left in Game 2, the NBAFinals were providing all the theater anyone could ask. Two superstars going head-to-head, the Miami Heat trying to hold off another stirring rally by the Oklahoma City Thunder, television ratings reaching levels last seen when Kobe Bryant and Shaquille ONeal played together. James forced Durant to miss that tying attempt perhaps getting away with a foul and the Heat held on for a 100-96 victory on Thursday night that evened the series at one game apiece. And as it shifts to Miami for the next three games, the only thing that seems certain is a tense series that looks to be lengthy. Game 3 is Sunday night and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra thinks it will look similar to the first two. This is going to be probably like this every single game, and thats the beauty of competition at this level, and embracing that competition and seeing what it brings out of you collectively Spoelstra said. Its brought out the best of league MVPJames and Durant, the NBAscoring champion. The series hype was built around them and they spent the first two games living up to every ounce of it. James has bounced back from his disappointing 2011 finals by scoring 30 and then 32 points, and even that was only good enough for a split because Durant has been just as good. He followed up his 36point performance in Game 1 by scoring 32 on Thursday, 16 in the fourth quarter after he scored 17 in the final period of the opener. Yet that was wasted because the Thunder had fallen into a 17-point hole in the first half. The Thunder also spotted Miami a 13-point lead in the first half of Game 1 and have fallen into double-digit holes in three straight games. Coach Scott Brooks said after Game 2 he wasnt considering a new starting lineup, even though the Thunder have been more effective with a smaller group on the floor. Instead, he said the only change the Thunder neededwas greater intensity from the start. e didnt come out with the toughness that we need to come out with. Were an aggressive team, were a physical team, he said. Defensive mindset was not where it needs to be, and hopefully we change that going into Game 3. The slow starts at home could mean trouble for the Thunder in Miami, where they wont have their raucous crowd to help rattle the Heat. But Oklahoma City has been good on the road in the postseason, winning twice in Dallas in the first round, taking a game in Los Angeles in the second round and pulling out a Game 5 victory in San Antonio in the Western Conference finals. These are the two best teams. Theyre confident no matter what building theyre in, James said. Were happy now that its a 1-1 series and were going back to Miami and will take control of the home court. It doesnt mean that the series has changed. Both teams can win on each others floor and both teams are confident. R atings through two games are up 11 percent from last year, when it seemed interest in the Heat couldnt get higher, and Thursday drew the highest rating for a Game 2 since 2004, when the Lakers lost to Detroit in their last title run with ONeal and Bryant. The latest game provided a look at the best of what both teams have: James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all making big plays in the fourth quarter; Sixth Man of the Year James Harden coming off the Thunder bench to keep them in it while Durant sat with foul trouble; Russell Westbrook turning from sloppy to sensational as the game went along. So whats next? s a long series. After Game 1 there was the hyperbole of, The Heat have no idea what to do with the speed of OKC.I have no idea what the story lines will be after Game 2, Miami forward Shane Battier said. We know every game is its own beast. You just have to play disciplined and tough to wina single game in the finals. Durant expects to score no matter who his guarding him. The problem, he said, is the Thunder arent paying enough attention to the other end of the floor. Ive got to make shots for my team. But I think on the defensive end, we all have to be better, and we cant really worry about the offensive end, he said. We missed s hots, but we cant let it dictate our defense. But Ive got to stay positive, keep working, and were looking forward to a Game 3. The Heats last finals game on their home floor ended with Dallas celebrating a c hampionship after Game 6 last year. They can be the ones partying this time if they take care of all three in Miami. For now, the Heat are only worried about the first one. eve got to figure out a way at home to protect home floor, especially in Game 3, and win it, Wade said. If you go up there and lose Game 3, youve given them, in a sense, home court right back. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, June 17, 2012Page 5D SEBRING PAIN MANAGMENT; 3.639"; 4"; Black; 6/3,17; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 2 2 8 8 9 9 SFCC; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; PO#P0090089 6/10,17; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 4 4 8 8 2 2 Were going to need it. Were going to need it. The series is going to be so tight that were going to need guys tos tep up, and Shane has been there in the first two games. The series is knotted at a game apiece, with Game 3 in M iami on Sunday night. Battier signed a $9 million, three-year contract with the Heat before the season began, announcing his decision on Twitter and by quoting singer Jimmy Buffett. (The two met in Miami at a concert about a month into this season.) B attier had other offers, but decided all that mattered was being in the best position to chase that still-elusive first championship. The role player tag doest bother him. H e knows his worth to the Heat the teams CEO, Nick Arison, was Dukes student manager when Battier played there, and the Arison family had wanted to see Battier in Miami colors fory ears. Hey, every player in this l eague is a role player Battier said earlier in this playoff run. Thats a secret. Its just some have the role to score, to be a 30 or 40-points corer. Were all role players. Its just doing your job. Everyone has a job to do. Every job is vital if you want to win. So thats the approach that the solid role players take. DURANTS NEW CHALLENGE Kevin Durant simply does not find himself in foul trouble often. Thats one of many reasons why Game 2 of the NBA Finals was so perplexing to the leagues scoring champio n. Durant has fouled out only twice in his five pro seasons,a span of 380 regular-season games and 40 more playoff contests. The Oklahoma City star was charged with his fifth foul with 10:31 left to play in Game 2 on Thursday night, but never picked up his sixth and managed to play the game as he normally would. He did not come out of the game after getting foul No. 5. He played all 12 minutes in the final quarter, scoring 16 points even with the five fouls and almost willing the Thunder back from a doubledigit deficit before Miami held on for a 100-96 victory. s tough to play with five, play with four in the third, Durant said. Itst ough, but Ive got to stay aggressive. I tried to stay aggressive. I tried to keep my team in it. They believed in me, and we had a chance. For comparisons sake, Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap have both fouled out 24 times over the past five seasons (including playoffs) for the NBAlead. And only one player has started more games than Durant in the last five years and fouled out less than twice Bostons Rajon Rondo has picked up six fouls only once in the 451 games hes started o ver that span. But even Durant isnt on pace to catch the gentlemanly standards of Steve Nash, who fouled out five times in his first four seasons and then again just once in 1,025 games over his past 12 years in the league. NOTES: This is the third straight year that the NBA Finals are knotted at a game apiece going into Game 3, and the 13th time thats happened since the title series went to the 2-3-2 format in 1985. ... The Thunder have 37 first-quarter points total in the two games. Thats not a new problem for the Western Conference champs, either: Oklahoma City has led after the first quarter in just two of its last 12 games overall. ... Miami never trailed in Game 2,b ecoming the first team to win a finals game wire-towire since San Antonio beat Detroit in Game 2 in 2005. ... Thunder C Serge Ibaka leads the finals with five blocked shots so far, even after noth aving any in Game 1. ... The Heat hosted a fan viewing party at their arena in Miami for Game 2, and measured the crowd noise at the end of the game at 113 decibels. To put that in perspective, rockc oncerts are often measured at around 115 decibels.

H is good eye and plate disc ipline also netted him 19 walks, for a .468 on base percentage, and his savvy base running garnered 10 stolen bases. The southpaw Hart, who more than held his own when pitching to the top talent in the state in the FACAevent, rolled through oppenents all season long. He racked up five wins and o ne save, with a 1.28 ERA a nd hitters batted a miniscule 209 against him this year. We put their names in for consideration, and they made it, Blue Streak head coach Buck Rapp said. I couldnt be more proud of them and what they were all able toa ccomplish this year Back down to Class 4A, a mere six players from throughout the state were named to the All-Academic team, with Lake Placids Nevada Weaver being one of them. Along with his wide range in the outfield, Weaver batted .324 and put his speed to use on the basepaths, swiping 2 1 b ases. But it was his work in the classroom that put him over the top to make this team, with perhaps the best stat of all, a 4.73 GPA.

Its not a no-hitter. Major League Baseball has denied the teams appeal of an official scoring d ecision during R.A. Dickeys one-hitter at Tampa Bay. T he knuckleballer allowed only an i nfield single Wednesday night, and New York asked the commissioners office to review the play and consider whether third baseman David Wright should have been charged with an error on B.J. Uptons hit. T he Mets said Friday the appeal was turned down, just as they expected. The speedy Upton hit a high bouncer in the first inning that Wright was u nable to field with his bare hand. The play was ruled a hit, and after t he game manager Terry Collins said t he Mets would take a shot at an appeal. Dickey did not ask the Mets to appeal, but said he appreciated the gesture. Im fairly relieved that it ended up the way it did, said Dickey, explaining that there would have been an asterisk by it bigger than the no-hitter itself. M LB can overturn official scoring decisions if it believes a mistake was made.
