C M Y K As mentioned in last w eeks article, there is a special dedication to Major Tommy McGuire during the Centennial focus week at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20. It willb e held at Sebring Regional Airport. Its hard to imagine why so few people know the name Thomas McGuire. Besidesb eing a top pilot, an Air Force base is named in his honor and hes buried in a prominent place in Arlington National Cemetery. Even in Sebring only a few r emembrances of McGuire remain. In an exceptional p lace in the foyer of Sebring High School is a photograph of an Air Force officer andb elow it is the following inscription: The late Thomas B McGuire, whose memory is preserved by the naming of McGuires Air Force Base, was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey, on August 1, 1920. Heg raduated from Sebring High School in 1938 and attended t he Georgia School of Technology and entered the United States Army AirC orps in 1941. In February 1942, he was commissioned a s a Second Lieutenant and was rated a pilot. During World War II he was assignedt o the Fifth Air Force, where he received honors including the Purple Heart with one c luster, the Air Medal with nine clusters, the D istinguished Flying Cross with five clusters, the Silver Star with two clusters, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Congressional Medal ofH onor, all for gallantry in action against the Japanese. His battle citations include the Asian-Pacific Campaign Medal and the VictoryM edal. McGuire lost his life in t he service of his country on January 7, 1945, while flying over Negros Island in theP hilippines. It was for his extraordinary gallantry and a ction beyond the call of duty on this final mission and for shooting down sevenJ apanese aircraft in aerial combat over Luzon on December 25 and 26, 1944, t hat he was posthumously awarded the Congressional M edal of Honor. Major McGuire destroyed thirtyeight enemy aircraft in aerial combat and was on e of the most skillful and courageousa irmen of World War II. The year was 1944. Major Thomas B. McGuire Jr. was celebrating Christmas in thec ockpit of a Lockheed P-38 Lightning. Flying support fora B-24, it didnt take long for t he Japanese to come calling. McGuire aimed his sights at t he first Japanese to hone in on the bombers. With a quick burst of .50 calibre machine gun fire, McGuire sent the Japanese fighter spinning outo f sight. It was his 31st kill of the war, only nine behind the record. The war was nearly at Japans doorstep whenM cGuire inched toward becoming top ace of the war. H is record earned him top billing in newspapers across the country, especially inS ebring. The people who knew M cGuire as a Sebring High School daredevil teenager marveled at how he wasb ecoming the deadliest American fighter pilot alive. The same Tommy McGuire w ho gave local lawmen headaches with his driving e xploits was becoming the great American hero as he neared the leading American ace, Richard Bong.

Medal of Honor winner McGuire remembered with dedications Centennial Notebook By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Sheriff Susan Benton announced on Friday that her office has launched a new sex offender registration and public notification website called OffenderWatch. Highlands County will now be part of a nationwide network of over 5,000 law enforcement agencies, which includes 12 full state applications, Benton said in a press release. According to Benton, the new service is a citizenfriendly, easy-to-use website that enables citizens to search for potentially dangerous sex offenders and predators who may be in close proximity to their homes, places of work, schools, churches and day care centers. The information is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is updated in real time by the Highlands County Sheriffs Office as offender information changes and is reported. As part of this new, innovative service, citizens may enter any address of interest to them, and see a map and listing of all offenders within a user defined radius from .25 miles out to 2 miles, the release stated. Citizens can then register the address to be continuously monitored and receive email alerts if an offender or predator should register an address within their specified radius of their address. Citizens may confidentially register as many addresses as they like, at no cost. Citizens have a right to know who may be living near them and could potentially pose a threat to their families. The Florida Sheriffs have the most up-to-date information on all offenders registered in the state and I am happy to be able to provide that information to our citizens, Benton said. Along with the maps and e-mail alerts, the sheriff has provided additional webbased resources designed to educate and inform the public on ways to keep their families safe. Citizens can access the OffenderWatch registry at the HCSO OffenderWatch web page at www.sheriffalerts.com/fl/hig hlands/ or by going to the HCSO home page at www.highlandssheriff.org/ and clicking on the Offender Watch box at the bottom of the page.

I tried different things to induce slumber. I lay inb ed with my eyes firmly s hut,telling myself to go to sleep. Didnt work. I got up and goofed around on F acebook for a little bit. Nope. My body wasnt going to fall back asleep until it was good and ready. At one point I was laying i n bed,trying to relax. That w as when I noticed the r oach on the ceiling. This bug got my attention and held it. He wasnt over the bed,but off to the side,completely still on the ceiling. He was probablyt he size of a quarter. I mentioned his existence t o Don,who was wide awake at this horrendously early hour on purpose. He acknowledged the roachs presence and proceeded to get ready for work. I eyed the insect suspiciously. It moved a little bita way from me but seemed c ontent to stand on the c eiling,ignoring my death glare. While Don was getting dressed I asked him a rational question:How am I supposed to sleep with a roach on the ceiling? This should have been his cue to do something about the intruder. Instead, he replied,By closing your eyes and forgetting about it. Yeah,right. Furthermore,Don told me that the roach had no interest in coming off the ceiling to get me and was probably shedding his old shell and growing a new one because he was getting bigger. For some strange reason none of this was reassuring. The upshot was that the man I love left me with a roach on the ceiling in the bedroom to go to work. I am trying not to hold this against him. You may ask why I didt get up on a chair or get a broom and dispatch the critter myself. It is a good question. Had it been on the floor I might have bee n able to make myself stomp on it,even though thats al ot closer than I want to be to a roach. B ut I kept having visions of my swinging something at the roach and it fallingd own somewhere on me. My head,for example,or my arm. Such an occurr ence would have turned me into a shrieking,shudd ering mess of a woman. Don probably wouldve found me huddled in a corner,hands over my head, whimpering when he goth ome from work that day. Instead and I cant believe this happened I finally fell asleep. When I woke up,the roach had moved further away from the bed,whichw as good news. The bad news was it hung on the c eiling near my closet, between me and the bathroom,meaning I had to pass under it if I was going to go about my day. I managed to scuttle past the thing without it dropping on me (and I knew it was just waiting for the chance) and spent the daya voiding it as much as possible. When Don came home I noted the bug was still on the ceiling and it needed to die. Now. Thankfully,this time Don was kind enough to send the roach into the afterlife for me,and my bedroom is bug-free. At least I think it is. And if I see another bug on the ceiling in the wee hours of the morning? Im going to do the mature, rational thing this time,and insist Don kill it before he goes to work.

Opinions expressed in letters or columns are solely the opinion of that author and not necessarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the News-Sun Sacrifice seems too much of an impositionEditor: In 1776,Thomas Paine wrote: These are the times that try mens souls the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will,in this crisis,shrink from the service of their country ... He went on to set a standard for American patriotism,a standard that recognizes that true patriotism involves sacrifice. In our current malaise,we have come to mistake flag wavers and posturers as patriots,not recognizing the need for sacrifice on behalf of the country as the true mark of patriotism. Those who have served in the military understand the essence of that sacrifice. In our politics today the top 1 percent of our country,those who have accumulated most of the wealth in our country have resisted anattempt to increase their tax obligations in order to help the economy. Sacrifice,a mere increase in financial contributions to the government in the current crisis, seems too much of an imposition,an unreasonable sacrifice,despite the needs of the country and the unquestionable ability of the wealthy to pay. Todayssummer soldiers and sunshine patriotsdrape themselves with the mantle ofjob creatorswhile they invest offshore and pursue profit at the expense of all else. Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidGood teachers influence lifeEditor: I am a Sebring High School graduate. My most memorable teachers were Joe Moore,Alan Rankin,Larry Isbell and Paul Gustat. One never forgets the teachers who pushed the hardest. I do remember being embarrased to the point of tears by all four. I also remember staying up all night and studying until I got it right. I am 60 years old,and I got it right. Thank you Mr. Moore,Mr. Rankin, Mr. Isbell,and Mr. Gustat. Sherry Poff FloridaAct of kindness a great thing to shareEditor: ve read many a story of acts of kindnessand I always get goose bumps when I read them. Well,today was my turn. After having a stressful morning at the doctors,I went to the drive-thru at McDonalds in Lake Placid. When I got to the window to pay I was told the lady in the vehicle in front of me had paid for my order. I asked the cashier, what do you mean and who was she. She said,Im sorry,I didnt think to ask. I wasnt paying attention to the vehicle or the person in front of me,so I dont know who she is or why she did this. I just want to thank her. This act of kindnessreally made my day. Now its my turn to give the act of kindness. Lois McGrady Lake Placid The council was unable to decide,however,voting instead to request more information. The situation seemed s traightforward to us. Dan Andrews,of Paragon E vent Professionals,asked the towns permission to host a two-day,four-event,O lympic-distance triathlon experience that would potent ially bring 500 athletes and 1,500 spectators into Lake Placid. We can see no downside. The idea is a perfect fit w ith the Tourism Development Councils marketing efforts. It supports the tried-and-true formula of using sports as one of the three legs of tourism in the county. It also creates a fami-l y friendly atmosphere. Visitors to the town have to e at and sleep somewhere,and maybe buy gas so it brings cash into the county. P aragon made clear it would include all of the comm unity and offer non-profit organizations the opportunity to raise funds over the two days. Paragon also made clear it w as willing to pay for any expenses incurred to the city for the use of public property and services. Finally,all the proceeds from one of the events would be given back to the Highlands County YMCA and Julies Funds for Kids, both non-profit organizations. During the debate it became clear the council was concerned about how Lake Placid was going to be represented,and how it would bep rotected from all liability. B ut,was that the real probl em? We think the reluctance was more philosophical. P aragon is a for-profit company and it stands to make money from the event. Some folks on the dais and in the audience were opposed to that. They took exception to a for-profit business using publicly funded parks to make, well,a profit. Its that pesky profit thats the fly in the ointment. The question is,why? If a for-profit business is willing to reserve a park or beach,pay the fees and provide insurance and cleanup, what can be wrong? Arent for-profit businesses taxpayers too? Dont they deserve use of the parks and beaches they help support? G o a step further. Arent j obs being created? Isnt m oney being circulated? Lets not be silly. Profit is how business survives. S urviving businesses are how communities thrive. Thriving communities create the biggest pies. Which means there is a slice for everyone at the table. At its Monday night meeting the L ake Placid Town Council debate d whether or not to allow a forp rofit business access to public property for a money making event. Everyone would profit from triathlon in Lake Placid

There is no set date for the release of t he film, but producer Kay Tarr hopes to have the DVD completed and ready to sell by the fall. T he DVD depicts the famous Dewey, his life and how he brought the town of L ake Placid through its early years.

There were contests like a tail wagging event (where a Pug named Baby Nelson was at a disadvantage on account of her tiny, curled tail), ana gility demonstration, live music and free biscuits for those with four legs. S ome of the dogs were in costume. AJack Russell named Bo Jack looked like t he Sheriff of Tombstone, A riz., complete with badge, fringed vest, chaps, handcuffs and a six shooter.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK To provide more adult learners throughout Florida with a high school credential, the South Florida State College Testing Center is partnering with GED Testing Service to offer the GED test on computer. Registration and scheduling will be available to candidates on Monday and testing will begin on Monday, July 30. Registering, scheduling and testing on computer will provide a new experience and new benefits for GED test-takers. These new features will improve the GED testing program which is a gateway for adults to find jobs or better paying jobs, enter the workforce or college training programs, and better support themselves and their families. The GED test on computer is the same test content currently offered on paper. Its accompanying systems will provide an array of new benefits for both the testing center and GED test-takers. Some of the initial benefits include one-stop online registration and scheduling available 24/7, flexible testing appointments for testtakers, instant test scores on four of five content areas, an introduction of basic keyboarding and computer skills and enhanced test security Test-takers interested in taking the test on computer at the SFSC Testing Center should go to www.GEDtestingservice.co m. The SFSC Testing Center is located on the Highlands Campus in Avon Park. Offering GED testing on computer also has increased accessibility and flexibility for test-takers, since a double-digit increase in the number of GED test-takers is expected by 2013. Anew GED assessment is scheduled to be released in January 2014, and a significant number of adults who haven't taken or passed all five content areas will want to test before their scores expire at the end of 2013. To learn more about the GED testing program at the SFSC Testing Center, email testing@southflorida.edu or call 784-7214. to a C. Two schools held their o wn. Avon Park Middle School and Cracker Trail E lementary School both maintained Cs. The remaining schools all lost a grade level, but only Memorial Elementary Schoolw as graded a D. Park Elementary, Sun N Lake Elementary and HillGustat Middle schools all dropped to a B. Fred Wild Elementary, Woodlawn Elementary andL ake Placid Middle schools went from a B to a C. T here was considerable trepidation this year regarding individual student scores on the Florida Comprehensive AssessmentT est and the school grade assignments based on those scores. In an effort to raise rigor and overall standards, the testi tself was made more difficult and students were required to get a larger number of correct answers to be judged as performing at grade level. In addition, in order to earn an exemption from portions of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, students with disabilities and non-native English speakers testing results were included in the school grade calculations. Because of these changes, school grades were predicted to fall. In fact, they have. According to an article by John OConner, at StateImpact Florida.npr.org, last year percent of Florida elementary and middle schools earned an A grade. This year the percent fell to 43 percent. Thats 357 fewer schools earning an A. At the other end of the spectrum, an additional 16 schools also earned an F for a total of 47. The percentage of schools earning B, C, and D also increased, with the number ofD schools almost doubling. Highlands County educators are pleased with the results. Because of the entire districts hard work, percent o f our elementary and middle schools earned a grade of A, B or C. This exceeded the state total of 89 percent, the school board said in a pressr elease. It thanked administrators, t eachers, support staff, students, parents and the community for their hard work and support during a difficult year of shifting standards and adjusted scoring.

Beyond the teams hard work, however, Disler credits community support, especially from the Parent Teacher Organization, and specific programs and policies within the school. Disler said the key to succ essful teaching is in buildi ng a relationship with the student, which is why her starting point is hiring the most energetic, best trained and passionate teachers she can. Then we work very hard to provide our teachers with specific training that focuses on what needs to be done, she said. B eyond that, in-class t utoring is emphasized and provided by volunteers in reading, math and writing either individually or in small groups, at all levels, b ut especially in the second g rade. After-school tutoring is provided for migrant children, especially in the first,s econd and third grades. D isler said another important component is that the school has a culture of teacher communication. Not only does she insist that all teachers of a particular grade level meet every week after school for sessions of com-m on planning, but teachers themselves created three professional learning committees that meet once a month for more in-depth discussiona nd communication. The school strongly benefits from its community anda dedicated PTO, Disler said. She described a variety of c ontributions from indiv idual dentists and opticians who provide care to students, t o local businesses that bring enhancement programs into the classrooms. B ut the PTO is outstanding, she said, with phenome nal fundraising and ideas. This year alone, she said, the PTO bought 150 newc lassroom computers. Which led Disler to anothe r element, keeping the school on the cutting edge of technology. Teachers have smartboards, projectors and lap t ops, she said. Were trying to stay on top of techno logy and integrating it into the classroom. It makesl earning more interesting for the students and prepares them for the future. Im very proud of being able to do that. She added an effort ism ade to also keep software up to date. Finally, Disler said, she had essential support from the district. The school wasa llocated an additional paraprofessional, for example, to help with its large population of non-native English speakers. The school was also provided with a second comput-e r lab this year, and there is a plan for a third. D isler said the district has kept Lake Placid the largest elementary school int he county, with 800 students from being overwhelmed b y its population. Class sizes have been kept down to manageable levels. District administrators specializing in federal ands tate grants and programs find ways to provide e nhancement the school. Disler laughed. I could go on and on, she said. C ontinued from page 1A Gutierrez to get away, which was heard by a witness, and pulled out a cell phone. The witness intervened and Gutierrez fled the area in his Saturn. G utierrez was later stopped and identified by p olice in the vicinity of the incident. C oogan reported that Gutierrez has two prior conviction one for for lewd and lascivious assault and one for sexual battery by threats, both in 1990. The City of Avon Park Police Department is a ctively looking for other children Gutierrez may have had the same type of encounters with, Coogan said. Gutierrez is currently being held without bond in the Highlands County Jail. Anyone with knowledge of this case or any other potential victims of Gutierrez are encour-a ged to contact the APPD Criminal Investigation Division at 452-4422. Continued from page 1A that goal. During the last months of the war when he was onlyt wo kills short of the record, he crashed during a combat maneuver over Los Negros Islands. But with 38 kills to his credit, McGuire is recog-n ized as the second greatest ace of World War II. More importantly, he left behind a legacy as probably the most skillful pilot to ever sit in thec ockpit of a P-38. McGuire moved to Sebring with his motherw hen he was 9 years old and lived at 10 Kenilworth Blvd. Even as a boy, he had a lovef or airplanes. Immediately after graduat ion he left Sebring for Georgia Tech University. In 1941, before receiving hisc ollege diploma and before the outbreak of the war, he e nlisted in the Air Force as an aviation cadet. McGuire was first stationed in Alaska and didnt get into combat until 1943. M cGuire piloted the P-38, one of the most versatile f ighter planes of the war. With a top speed of 414 MPH, the P-38 shot downm ore Japanese planes than any other fighter. Day after d ay during 1943 and McGuire proved himself, cutting a deadly swath t hrough enemy defenses. In a two-day period, he shot down seven Japanese planes.F or that he was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal ofH onor. When Bong was sent home in 1944 it seemed cert ain that McGuire would surpass his record, but fate would soon catch up. I ronically, it wasnt the enemy that sent McGuire to h is death on January 7, 1945; it was the law of aerodynamics. During desperate low-altitude maneuvers while tryingt o help a fellow fighter who was being attacked by a J apanese Zero, McGuires engines stalled. His airplane plunged into the jungle andb urst into flames. McGuire was killed instantly. D uring the Centennial celebration focus week, at 3 p.m. Oct. 20, make it a point t o attend this wonderful dedication to Thomas B. McGuire. According to the Marker Dedication Committee, some dignitariesh ave been invited to attend a nd Charles Martin, author o f The Last Great Ace; The Life of Major Thomas B. McGuire Jr. should be in attendance as well. Further, the McGuire Dedication Committee also has plans to add signs along Kenilworth Boulevard, dedi-c ating the road to Tommy McGuire, to haveK enilworth Boulevard also k nown as the Thomas B.

I want to learn and discuss what their issues are, Pigman said. e are discussing health care, Medicare and Medicaid. We all have to pay for Medicare and Medicaid, Pigman said. That social contract is extremely important. Pigman stated that he strongly believes the country must solve the challenges facing health care in America without losing the quality of care or damaging the doctor-patient relationship. Pigman does not want to turn health care over to government bureaucracy and bury it in red tape, but states that he believes in helping small businesses offer affordable health care to their employees, and providing an insurance deduction for the self employed. Pigman spent six years in the U.S. Navy as a battalion surgeon attached to the 2nd Marine Division. When his tour was over, Pigman went on to become a faculty member at George Washington University. According to his website, Pigman moved to Highlands County 17 years ago and currently resides in Lake Placid. The challenges Florida faces require a mix of bold leadership and commonsense principles. Ive proudly served my country and now I would like to serve our community in Tallahassee, Pigman stated on his website. Pigman recently completed a tour of duty in Northern Iraq as a Lt.

OB ITUARIES A llyn O verbey Pigman visits Oaks at Avon municipalities. Each municipality agrees to abide by thet erms of the master trust agreement. T he fund encompasses 199 plans, of which 133 are Defined Contribution Plans, 48 Defined Benefit plans and 15 Other Post EmploymentB enefit Plans. Shamoun said there were more than 5,500 participants in total and $360 million in assets. T he plan is overseen by a board of trustees and an investment advisory committee. Investment management, performance monitoring, custodial banking, record keeping and actuarial services are bundled into a full-service administration. A ccording to Shamoun, the municipal pension fund has a h igh quality bias and makes conservative investments to seek long-term growth of capital, consistent returns and avoiding extreme volatility int he market valuation. Big spikes in the market, mean big spikes in the budget, he said. Typically, the pension plan assumes a 7.5p ercent return on investments. One of the biggest advantages to the Leagues pension plan is the economy of scale, Shamoun said. Another is lowered administrative costs. He said Avon Park police officers could expect $27,000 to $28,000 in administration savings and firefighters woulds ee approximately $25,000. By state statute, it is up to t he to board of trustees of the Avon Park police and fire pension fund to decide on the pension funds future. The city council, on the o ther hand, has the right to decide whether or not to contract law enforcement services to another organization. According to the Florida c onstitution, however, electors have the ultimate say when transferring power from the local to the county i.e. from police department to sheriffs office.

C M Y K LIVING B SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, July 15, 2012 Summers here! Time to fire up the grill,soak up some rays,head to the pool and,well,relax. But dont let your guard down too much. The summer months can bring a few dangers,too. Heres guide to playing it safe this summer. By Sharon Thompson and Le Datta Grimes Illustrations by Chris WareMcClatchy NewspapersSUN SAFETY To avoid sunburn,babies younger than 6 months old should be kept out of the direct sunlight. Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside,and use sunscreen even on cloudy days. Reapply every two hoursand make sure you get the ears and at the hairline Use a water-resistant sunscreen labeled broad-spectrum protection(protects against UVB and UVA rays) with a sun protection factor (SPFof at least 15. Limit your familys time in the sun during the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. thats when the suns rays are strongest.FIRST AID Make a first-aid kit to take on picnics,to the b each,wherever. Some things to include:a box of bandages,sterile gauze,elastic bandage,small scissors,tweezers,adhesive tape,needles,matches,hydrocortisone cream,ipecac syrup,antibiotico intment,instant cold pack,alcohol swabs,prescription medicines and emergency phone numbers (for your doctor,hospital and poison control).BUG OFF! To remove a visible bug stinger from skin, g ently scrape it horizontally with a credit card or y our fingernail. You also can remove a stinger by pinching it out with a pair of tweezers or your fingers. To help keep bugs away,dont use scented soap,perfume or hairspray on your child. If the mosquitoes are biting,spray clothes and exposed skin with mosquito repellent containing DEET. Dont apply repellents containing permethrin directly to skin.PLAY TIME Carefully maintain all play equipment, including playground swings and slides. Swings should be made of soft materials such as rubber,plastic or canvas. Make sure children cannot reach any moving parts on equipment that might pinch or trap a body part. Make sure metal slides are cool to prevent childrens legs from getting burned.OUTTA HERE? Whether trekking across country or running to the grocery store,be sure to buckle up car seats and seat belts. Keep children entertained with car games, activity books and story tapes. Keep supplies in the car,such as snacks, water,a first-aid kit and any medicines your family takes. Always use a car seat,starting with your babys first ride home from the hospital. Help your child form a lifelong habit of buckling up. Put your child in the back seat. It is the safest place in the car b ecause it is farthest away from a head-on crash ( the most common type).IN THE SWIM Never leave children alone in or near the pool,even for a moment. Make sure adults watching young children in the pool know CPR and can rescue a child if necessary. If you have a pool at home, surround it with a sturdy,5-foot fence. Keep rescue equipment (a shepherds hook and a life preserver) and a telephone near the pool. Avoid inflatable swimming aids,such as floaties.They are not a substitute for approved life vests and can give children a false sense of security. Children are not developmentally ready for swim lessons until after they are 4. Swim programs for children younger than 4 should not be seen as a way to decrease the risk of drowning.YUMMY IN THE TUMMY Give the grill a thorough cleaning with grill or oven cleaner. If you have a gas g rill,check all the connections and replace any hose as needed. Clean t he grills rack by setting it in place as soon as the ignited coals have been spread o ut. Let the heat burn off any food residue on the grills. Clean the grill every few weeks to avoid buildup of carbon and residual food and grease. If youre in a hurry,speed up grilling time b y partially pre-cooking chicken,ribs,potatoes, carrots and other slow-cooking food in the oven o r microwave. Light coals about 30 minutes before cooking. To determine if the coals are ready,hold your p alm 5 inches over the fire. If you can hold it there for only two to three seconds,the fire is hot; if you can stand four to five seconds,the fire is medium; tolerating a full six seconds means the fire is low. Never use kerosene or gasoline to start a charcoal fire in the grill. Avoid using chemical starters or chemically treated briquettes as well,as they will affect the taste of your food. If youre picnicking,keep perishable foods ham,potato or macaroni salad,hamburgers, hot dogs,lunch meat,deviled eggs,custard or cream pies in a cooler with ice. Put leftovers back in the cooler as soon as you finish eating. Toddlers can choke trying to swallow many picnic foods whole,such as hot dogs,hard-boiled eggs or marshmallows. Cut hot dogs lengthwise in narrow strips before serving; slice up other foods into small bite-size pieces and keep children seated while eating. If youre traveling,store the cooler in the passenger area of the car during the trip. Its cooler there than in the trunk.Researcher Linda Niemi contributed to this article.

C M Y K Dear Abby: Shortly after my wife and I were married, my wife got pregnant. Due to complications with thep regnancy,the baby had to be delivered early through a C-section. Our baby didnt make it. That was four years ago. After unsuccessfully trying to conceive for almost a year now,my wife decided she wanted to find out why. We learned that there is a problem that was most likely caused by the C-section. Although we are still trying to see what can be done, there is a good chance that things wont be as easy as we expected regarding a pregnancy. Im personally in no hurry,but my wife is suffering a great deal as a result of this. Im trying to ease things for her,telling her that this is not her fault and that were in this together, and trying to reassure her that she is more important to me than kids. However,she keeps saying that Im just saying it, and with time I will change my mind and start to think about having kids. She says this is a basic instinct and it will eventually show up. My question is:Is life without kids unbearable to an extent that we might reach a point we wont be able to continue together? Confused Husband in Jordan Dear Confused Husband: There are many happily childless couples. But before you and your wife reconcile to being one of them,consult an ob/gyn who specializes in infertility. Thanks to advances in medical science, there is more than one way to become parents. If your wife isnt able to carry a pregnancy to term because of her surgery,you may be able to hire a surrogate to do it. The baby would result from your sperm and your wifes egg and be your biological child. Its possible that your wife is depressed and could benefit from talking with a mental health professional. I hope you both will start doing some research to find out what options are available to you including adoption if you wish to become parents. D ear Abby: I am a happily married English lady who came to the United States in 1985. I have a good career working for the same company for more than 20 years. My husband and I have no children. We enjoy travel and twice a year visit my aging parents in England. My problem is that my guilt for not being there for my parents is growing stronger by the day. Im an only child and feel that although they are both in relatively good health,they really need me. To move there would be financially impossible for us. Every year for the past 10 years we have spent a total of four weeks with them in England.I call them every three days on the phone,and yet the guilt continues to build. Is what Im doing acceptable,or am I a bad daughter for choosing to live my life so far away from them? They know that if anything happened and they needed me,d be on the next plane to be with them. Conflicted in Florida Dear Conflicted: You are not a bad daughter.You are a caring daughter who has made a success of her life, and who,because she loves her parents,is making her-s elf crazy over choices she made years ago that she cant change. You are doing more for your parents than many people do,so stop flogging yourself. Please!

The two met with Editor in Chief Amy Astley for less than five minutes Wednesday, when they delivered a petition bearing more than 28,000 signature. Astley did not talk to Emma Stydahar,17, or Carina Cruz,16,about their request for Teen Vogue to declare in its pages that it doesnt digitally manipulate images. Instead, the girls were given copies of Teen Vogue and told to use them to learn more about the magazine. It was kind of shocking how rude they were to us,Carina said in a statement released by their all-girl activist group. Girl crusaders get cold shoulder from Teen Vogue

C M Y K SAN DIEGO (AP De La Cruz cried when she met author E L James. The 29-year-old fan had waited since 4 a.m. to accomplish the No. 1 thing on her Comic-Con to-do list meet the writer of Fifty Shades of Gre and 12 hours later,she got her chance. The relationship thats in the book is something that ve always wanted and havet gotten in previous relationships,so it kind of gave me that hope that theres something still out there,she said as she wiped away tears after meeting James Thursday. James can relate. The 49year-old mother of two was a fan herself,moved to start writing after reading Stephenie Meyers wilightseries. I dont think Ive ever been swept up in something like I was swept up with that,James said Thursday before her Comic-Con appearance in San Diego. I read them and reread them and reread them,and then I sat down and wrote a novel. That book hasnt been published yet but she followed by posting new pieces online. Those stories found an instant audience and eventually became Fifty Shades of Grey. Now,shes the bestselling author of her own literary phenomenon a romantic trilogy that commanded a seven-figure publishing price,has been translated into 42 languages,is dissected by book clubs and talkshow hosts and set to be made into a movie. s just crazy,James said. This whole thing has just been mindboggling,how its happened and how its exploded,and so quickly. The Fifty Shadesbooks, which follow the relationship between college student Anastasia Steele and billionaire-bachelor-with-a-tastefor-bondage Christian Grey, were published in April by a division of Random House, Inc. and have already sold more than 16 million copies. B y LYNN ELBER AP Television WriterLOS ANGELES American Idolis on theb rink of an adolescent identity crisis. J udge Steven Tyler is leaving and taking his naughty rock star vibe withh im,fellow judge Jennifer Lopez is also leaving,and r atings for the Fox show have declined as TVs talent show field gets more comp etitive. When American Idol returns for its 12th season next January,it will have to be a reengineered version oft he once-powerhouse series that turned hopefuls such as Jennifer Hudson into stars and gave network rivals fits. One big step would be a c lean sweep of the judging panel. Aerosmith frontman T yler got the ball rolling with his announcementT hursday that he was putting rock nroll ahead of the show that he said had been ver-the-top fun. I strayed from my first love,Aerosmith,and Im back but instead of begging on my hands and knees,I got two fists in the air and I m kicking the door open with my band,Tyler said in a statement. Aerosmith is on a nationwide tour with Tyler and has an album due out int he fall. On Friday,Lopez a nnounced that she was also leaving the show. That means the shos j udging panel is down to one,Randy Jackson,and there are reports that he may take a different role on the program moving forward. F oxs American Idolhas been TVs most popular program for nearly a decade. But it slumped severely in the ratings last season,andp roducers are looking for a way to shake things up. J ackson and his dawg! exclamations have been as talwart part of Idol.But the shos multi-year contracts,such as the one Jackson signed,typically include an escape clause that the network can choose to exercise or not. A call to Jacksons representative was not returnedW ednesday. Fox declined to make an executive available t o discuss the show and its judges,but one expressed measured regret over Tylersd ecision in a statement. e are very sad that S teven has chosen to focus more on his music,but we always knew when we hired a rock nroll legend,he would go back to his music, said Mike Darnell,the networks president of alternative entertainment. S peculation about potential new panelists has focused on Mariah Carey, with former Idolrunner-up Adam Lambert getting as hout-out from his fans. Much is at stake for the s how and for its judges: Ryan Seacrest,the other o riginal cast member,will provide a stable center. He signed a two-year contract with American Idolproducers this spring. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, July 15, 2012Page 3B church page; 5.542"; 7.1"; Black; church page dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 8 8 DR.

Burtons Dark Knight looked as though he wash aving fun in the sun compared to where the current Batman series has taken thec omic-book vigilante on the big-screen. I recall at the time,peop le worried about our version being too dark, B urton said of his 1989 Batmanand the 1992 sequel Batman Returns. Its like,well,it looks like a lighthearted romp in comp arison. Batman on Ice. Opening next week,The Dark Knight Riseswraps up director Christopher Nolans trilogy thatl aunched with 2005s Batman Beginsand cont inued with 2008s The Dark Knight. Nolan elevated the superh ero genre to grand proportions,with Christian Bales B atman becoming a haunted wreck and a hunted fugitive unjustly condemned by t he city which he gave his all to protect. Burtons Batman,played by Michael Keaton,was a dark soul,too,but the filmsh ad a levity and a campier quality that has diminished as todays stream of superhero flicks take their idols and action more seriously. The great thing about what comics have done is t hat you can take something and look at it in differentw ays,Burton said in an interview at the Comic-Con fan convention,where he showed off footage of his animated comedy Frankenweenie,due out Oct. 7. s like a folk tale or fairy tale. You can kind of revisit things and showt hings in a different way. Burton,whose biggest commercial success began a decade after his Batman movies with such blockbusters as Charlie and the Chocolate Factoryand Alice in Wonderland,is revisiting one of his own early stories with Frankenweenie. The tale of a boy who resurrects his dead dog, Frankenstein-style,started at a live-action short film Burton directed in 1984. He has expanded on the story to create a feature-length black-and-white update using stop-motion animation,in which puppets are moved and photographed meticulously one frame at a time. I felt quite grateful that I got to do the original in live action,because I was, A.,a bad animator,and B., not very communicative,so it really forced me to talk, said Burton,whose Frankenweenievoice cast includes past collaborators such as Winona Ryder, Martin Landau,Catherine OHara and Martin Short. If Id done stop-motion at the time,which I dont think would have happened, I probably wouldnt have been able to move into liveaction like I did. So all these years later, to come back and to do it in I think its more pure form, stop-motion,exploring other kids,other monsters, weird teachers,things related to the story that were kind of rattling around, made it feel like it was a new thing. I didnt feel like I was Burton recalls his B atman as lighter D ark Knight Associated PressLONDON The London Olympics are drawing near and British headlines are fullo f complaints about the weather,commercialization, chaos on the roads and the subway.

C M Y K R ecently the Sun N Lake Preserve wentt hrough some changes. A pine thinning proje ct took place on the northern portion of the property. For years,manyp eople have viewed cutting down any tree as a destruct ive or harmful act. In reality,if done properly and for the right reasons,cuttingd own a few trees can actually benefit the forest. P ortions of the Preserve had formed canopies of pine trees so thick that it createda dome over the forest floor allowing little or no sunlightt o penetrate. In many areas, the pines had become impene trable causing wildlife such as white-tailed deer difficulty navigating their wayt hrough the trees. And even if they could get around the t hick stand of pines,there was no vegetation to feed on because no sunlight hadr eached the forest floor to allow plant growth. The pines that were s pringing up in the dense forest were thin and spindly a nd basically unhealthy due to lack of nutrients,space and water. Since the canopy has been opened up by the selectivet hinning project,the abundance of wildlife to the area has increased. The trees that remain will begin to grow wider and taller. Sunlight,once again,can reach the forest floor stimu-l ating herbaceous plant growth that many wildlife s pecies prefer. Rainfall will reach the ground,giving the pine roots and ground cover much needed moisture. Because the density of treesi s reduced,pine beetles are less of a threat. Selectively thinning these pines will allow them to extend their branches and roots. B y thinning the forest,the ground is open to new pine growth. Now that the saplings have some room tog row,they should become beautiful,tall and healthy t rees. They will have the necessary space,nutrients, sunshine and water to reacht heir full potential. Wildfire is much less of a threat than it was before the t hinning process. With the rainy season upon us,this is a very important issue. Lightning strikes were once natures way of naturally thinning pine forests. Historically,a fiery boltw ould strike a tree,catch fire and burn through the pine flatwoods for miles and miles until the flames reached a natural fire break. But,as populations have increased it is no longerp ractical to allow fires to burn unchecked for safety a nd economical reasons. Adding to the safety issues from wildfires,a prescribed burn will take place this winter to eradicated owned fuels and further increase the health of the forest. Pine forests are fire dependent,which means that they actually need fire tos urvive and thrive. Older pine trees have a very thick bark that protects them from the flames and ad eep taproot,which ensures their hardiness after the fire. P rescribed burning will continue the thinning process, killing the weaker trees andf urthering herbaceous growth from the nutrient rich soil. F ire also eradicates hardwoods that are trying to take o ver the pine forests. This is called succession. While hardwoods such as oaks, maples and hickories are beautiful,they have theirp lace and that isnt the pine flatwoods. If grown unchecked,these huge shade producing trees will eventually shade out and kill the pines that naturally grow in these areas. Why ist his a problem? Some of the plants that t hrive in the pine flatwoods include wiregrass,gallberry, palmetto,fetterbush, American beautyberry,wax myrtle and blueberry. M any animals depend on these and other vegetation to survive in this plant community. Pine flatwoods are an e ssential habitat for many species of wildlife. These creatures not only find forage here,but depend on thes hrubs and grasses for nesting purposes. They also seek r efuge for predators in the understory. Pine flatwoods are the m ost abundant plant community in Florida. These pine forests have always been and c ontinue to be valuable to Floridas landscape. Not o nly do they provide homes and forage to countless species of wildlife,but they also provide necessary products to humans. M any threatened and endangered species are found in the pine flatwoods. The days of allowing nature to take its course are over in many instances.

T he only thing that came close was President John F. Kennedys assassination and its aftermath in 1963,but that was only for the peoplea ged 55 and over who experienced those events as they happened instead of replayed as an historical artifact. Sony Electronics and the Nielsen television researchc ompany collaborated on the survey. They ranked TV m oments for their impact not just by asking people if they remembered watching them,b ut if they recalled where they watched it,who they w ere with and whether they talked to other people about what they had seen. By that measure,the Sept. 11 tragedy was nearly twicea s impactful as the secondranked moment,which was t he coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Minutes after the first airplane struckN ew YorsWorld Trade Center on a late summer m orning,television networks began covering the events continuously and stayed witht hem for days. The other biggest TV events,in order,were the 1 995 verdict in O.J. Simpsons murder trial,the C hallenger space shuttle explosion in 1986 and the death of Osama bin Laden last year,the survey found. Sony was interested in the s tudy for clues on consumer interests and behaviors and found that television is really the grandmother of all the social devices,said Brian Siegel,vice president of tele vision business for the company. Going into the study, S iegel said he had anticipated that entertainment events l ike the final episode of MA-S-H(ranked No. 42),the Beatlesappearance on TheE d Sullivan Sho(No. 43 and the Who shot J.R.? episode of Dallas(No. 44 w ould rank higher. Instead, television coverage of news e vents made the biggest difference in viewerslives. The Super Bowl is annually the most-watched TV event,with this years gameb etween the New York Giants and New England Patriots setting a record with 111 million viewers. The memories dont seem to linger,however:the topranked Super Bowl Sunday event in Sons study camei n 2004 and had nothing to do with football. It was Janet Jacksons wardrobe malfunction (No. 26 Men and women agreed on the three most impactful television events Sept. 11, Katrina and Simpson. Aftert hat,some of the interests diverged. For example,women ranked the 1997 funeral of Princess Diana as the fourth most memorable event, while men put that at No. 23. Women ranked lasty ears death of Whitney Houston at No. 5,with men j udging it No. 21. Similarly,the 2003 bombing of Baghdad at the starto f the Iraq War was seen as the No. 14 most impactful m oment by men,and No. 37 among women. Men were also far more struck byb oxer Mike Tyson biting off a piece of Evander Holyfields ear. T he passage of time has also diluted some moments o nce thought as unforgettable,simply because succeeding generations have no personal memory of them. Mans first moon landing in1 969 ranked No. 21. Age also made a big difference in the survey. JFKs assassination was the second-most impactful TV event among people 55 and over,while for those between 18 and 34,it wast he death of Osama bin Laden. Y oung people also ranked Barack Obamas Election Night speech in 2008 at No.3 ,while that didnt move older viewers quite as much ( No. 24). Simply because of their age,events like the JFKa ssassination,President Nixons resignation and the moon landing didnt register a t all among viewers 18 to 34. The oldest event to a ppear in their rankings was the 1980 shooting of John Lennon. The study was based on an online questionnaire of 1,077a dults selected as a scientific sample from among Nielsens panel of people measured for television ratings. It was conducted Feb. 15-17 this year.

Boeing,one of the worlds largest makers of commercial jetliners,forecasts about4 60,000 new pilots will be needed worldwide between now and 2031 as global economies expand and airlines take deliveries of tens o f thousands of new commercial jetliners. The forec ast includes 69,000 new pilots in the North America, mostly in the U.S. The great-e st growth will be in the Asia-Pacific region,where an estimated 185,600 new p ilots will be needed. Likewise,Boeing predicts 6 01,000 new aircraft maintenance technicians will be needed over the same period, with greatest demand 243,500 technicians int he Asia-Pacific region. An estimated 92,500 new technicians will North America. The rising global demand for airline pilots has raised c oncern among industry and government officials that there will be a global and a domestic pilot shortage. In many regions of the world,a pilot shortage is already here,the Boeingf orecast said. Asia Pacific i n particular is experiencing delays and operational interr uptions due to pilot schedu ling constraints. Thats particularly true in China and India,industry o fficials said. Airlines based in Asia and the Middle East have been holding pilot job fairs in the U.S. and thouMCT Industry forecasts say half a million new airline pilots will be needed over the next 20 years, raising questions about how well trained those new pilots will be.

Thats right in this age of email,password-protect-e d accounts and social media sites like Facebook a nd LinkedIn,the U.S. Government,of all sources, recently pointed out whyi s important for people to leave instructions for how t hey want their online identities handled after death.

In case youve been procrastinating a bout completing a will and other such documents,heres a good motivator: Although wills arent mandatory,if you d ont have one when you die,the state will decide how your estate is settled. S imilarly,if you havent filed financial and healthcare durable powers of attorney,someone else not necessarily the person you wish will make financial and healthcare decisions on your behalfs hould an accident or illness render you unable. Here are a few things that could go w rong if you dont make your wishes k nown: Court-supervised probate could hold up your estate and result in costly fees. Because the state usually awards assets to surviving spouses,childrena nd other relatives,your friends and favored charitable institutions could be left out. With no will,the state decides g uardianship for minor children whose p arents have died. Your preferences for things like life-support procedures and burial instructions may not be followed exactly. K ey documents that can prevent these kinds of scenarios include a will, r evocable living trust,financial and h ealth care powers of attorney and a living will.

Davis presented his compans forecast Thursday at a conference in Washington onp ilot training hosted by the Air Line Pilots A ssociation,the worlds largest pilot union. U.S. industry and gove rnment officials are also concerned that the rising g lobal demand for pilots, combined with an anticipated wave in pilot retirements and tougher qualification standards for newp ilots that kick in next year,will create a domestic s hortage as well. Im concerned because it has safety implications,J ohn Allen,the Federal Aviation Administrations d irector of flight services, told The Associated Press. Allen said he wants to s pur a discussion among industry,labor unions and academia about a potential s hortage that will really look at this and address it, n ot to just sweep it under the rug ... Is this a problem? And,if it is a problem,how bad is it? He said he is fearful that i f there is a shortage,airlines will hire pilots who are technically qualified b ut dont have the right stuff. If the industry is stretched pretty thin ... that can result in someone get-t ing into the system that maybe isnt really the right person to be a pilot. Not everybody is supposed to be a pilot,Allen said. J ean Medina,a spokeswoman for Airlines for America,responding to Allens comments,said: Safety is always our top priority and our airlinesh ire pilots that meet the rigorous standards set by t he FAA.The International Air Transport Association didnt respondt o a request for comment. Lee Moak,president of t he pilots union,said he doubts a pilot shortage will be felt in the U.S. for about three to five years. If U.S. airlines start hiring pilotsi n large numbers,he said, pilots now flying for fore ign carriers will likely return home. There are currently about 90,000 airlinep ilots in the U.S. and Canada. Globally is another matter,Moak said. Industry and government o fficials anticipate a wave of pilot retirements at U.S. airlines beginning this year. F ive years ago,the FAA raised the mandatory retirem ent age for pilots from 60 to 65. The fifth anniversary of that decision is Dec. 13. Pilots who were age 60 on that date five years ago arer eaching the age where they have to retire.

Prepare a will covering your digital assets Shortage of pilots could be a problem By PALLAVI GOGOI AP Business Writer NEW YORK JPMorgan Chase said Friday that a bad trade had costt he bank $5.8 billion this year, almost triple its original estimate, and raised the prospect that traders had improperly tried to conceal the blunder. This has shaken our company to the core,CEO Jamie Dimon said. The bank said managers tied to the bad trade had been dismissed without severance pay and that it planned to revoke two yearsworth of pay from each of those executives. JPMorgan said it had lost $4.4 billion because of the trade from April through June,and its chief financial officer said the bank had lost an additional $1.4 billion in the first three months of the year. Dimons original estimate of the loss from the bad trade,disclosed ina surprise conference call with Wall Street analysts in May,was $2 billion. On Friday,Dimon said he believed the loss was mostly contained. In the worst case,if financial markets deterioriate severely, the bank could lose an additional $1.7 billion,he said. That would bring the total loss to $7.5 billion. Investors appeared relieved that the mess was mostly behind the bank. They sent JPMorgans stock price up $1.50,or more than 4 percent,to $35.54. That made it the best-performing stock in the DowJ ones industrial average. The bank said an internal investigation,including emails and voice messages,had called into question the values that traders placed onc ertain bets,and that the traders may have been seeking to mask losses. A spokesman for the Securities and Exchange Commission declined comment. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Dimon told Congress last month that the trade was meant to hedge risk at the company and protect it in case things got really badin the global economy. Instead,the trade has backfired and damaged the banks reputation. Speaking broadly about the trading loss on Friday,Dimon told analysts:e dont take it lightly.He added:re not making light of this error,but we do think its an isolated event. The bank said that it was reducing its net income for the first quarter by $459 million because it had discovered information that raises questions about the integrityof values placed on certain trades. Dimon said the bank had closed the trading division responsible for the bad trade and moved the remainder of the trading position under its investment banking division. Overall,JPMorgan said it earned $5 billion,or $1.21 per share,for the second quarter,which covers April through June and includes the banks disclosure of the trading loss on May 10. Analysts surveyed by FactSet,a provider of financial data,had expected JPMorgan to earn 76 cents per share. Investors were also cheered to hear that the bank might resume its plan to buy back its own stock. Dimon said the bank was in discussions with the Federal Reserve and would submit a plan in hopes of buying back stock starting late this year. The big gain on Friday still left the banks stock about $5 shy of its closing price of $40.74 on May 10, the day Dimon surprised reporters and stock analysts by holding a con-f erence call to disclose the loss. The company suspended an earlier plan to buy back $15 billion of its stock after reporting the trading loss. J ust three months ago,JPMorgan was viewed as the top American bank,guided by Dimons steady hand. Since the disclosure of the trading loss,however,that reputation has been eroded. Dimon,who originally dismissed concerns about the banks trading asa tempest in a teapot,appeared before Congress twice to apologize and explain himself,and several government agencies have launched investigations. Under close questioning from lawmakers in June about his own role in setting up the investment division responsible for the mess, Dimon declared:e made a mistake. Im absolutely responsible. The buck stops with me. The trading loss has raised concerns that the biggest banks still pose risks to the U.S. financial system,less than four years after the financial crisis erupted in the fall of 2008. JPMorgan stock has lost about 15 percent of its market value since the loss came to light. JPMorgan says bad trade has ballooned to $5.8 billion MCT This has shaken our company to the core, CEO Jamie Dimon said of the bad trade that has cost the bank $5.8 billion. NEW YORK (AP) With new public stock offerings for guitar maker Fender and travel booking website Kayak on deck next week,there are signs demand is starting to grow for IPOs after a fiveweek freeze triggered by a steep decline in financial markets and exacerbated by Facebooks rocky May 18 debut. Five companies are scheduled to go public next week alone,including Fender, Kayak and Palo Alto Networks,a maker of computer network security products. After Facebook,just four deals made it to market by the end of June,marking the longest stretch without an initial public offering of stock since the 2008 financial crisis. The resurgence of activity is a welcome indication that dealmakers are regaining confidence about raising money through IPOs. But the situation is far from rosy. There are 68 companies expected to raise $14.4 billion through IPOs later this year,according to research firm Dealogic,Last year at this time there were almost double that amount of companies 135,looking to raise $23.6 billion. If the market stays healthy the overall market I think we will see a lot of IPO activity in the second half,said Nick Einhorn,an analyst with Renaissance Capital. But a plunge in stock markets could make it difficult for companies to raise money by selling shares. That happened in the summer and fall of 2011. After Facebook freeze, IPO market starts to thaw with new offerings

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Neither team was going to go down without a fight, as was evidenced by the remarkable defensive efforts from either side of the field Thursday night. B ut in the end of the crosscounty contest for the Dixie AAAState Tournament championship, Sebring outlasted the comeback kidsf rom Lake Placid, 4-1, to gain entry into the World Series two weeks from now in Bartow. Leading these efforts from the mound was Royston Daley for Lake Placid and Desmond Gaines for Sebring. In the second inning there was a slight change of events, as Hunter Vanderpool made it to first before the throw despite the signature stretching skills from Lake Placid first baseman Joey Warner. Vanderpool later stole second on a passed ball before being brought in by an RBI single to right from DrewS mith. This put the score at 1-0 in Sebrings favor as the Dragons took their second atbat, however their hits would n ot find any gaps as they attempted to even the board. Sebring would add two more runs in the top of the third, with LJ Daniels and D rew Morris finding their way on the bases with a single and a fielders choice. Daniels would steal home on a passed ball before Robert Spoones blooper found the slightest gap between third and short just beyond the outstretched glove of the third baseman to score Morris to see the lead now at 3-0. Cody Carpenter took the mound for Lake Placid in the top of the fourth, despite some previous injuries, and battled through long enough to keep Sebring at bay. Later in the same inning, Lake Placid threatened the Streakslead as Shamar Mitchell reached on a single, beating out the throw from the middle infield. Mitchell managed to make it to second base safely on a steal, and soon found himself on third after an overthrow. He was then brought in by Wyatt Moore, who would not make it safely to first himself but would successfully put the Dragons on the board at 3-1. Sebring earned back an insurance run in the top of the fifth, with Daniels smacking a hit down the left field SPORTS D SE CTION Inside This Section Appel declines . . .3D M arlins, Rays ink picks . . .3D Brees signs . . .5D News-Sun Sunday, July 15, 2012 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE FOX 13s Brian Gray films as he interviews Drew Reeves Thursday at Charles R.

Prime time players Two more Dixie tournaments, two more State Champs News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Head coach Caesar Martinez gets doused after his squad clinched the Dixie Ozone State Championship with a 2-1 win over West Volusia Thursday. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It wasnt the hitting parade the team had gotten used to, but Sebrings Ozone All-Stars fought t hrough a nerve-wracking pitchers duel to win the Florida Dixie State Championship with a 2-1 win over West Volusia Thursday. With 12 home runs over their first four games, the Sebring sluggers had made things look easy, averaging 14 runs per game over that span. The lopsided wins also made things easier on their pitching staff, which would prove invaluable this day as staff ace Everett Hurst locked horns with West Volusias Bryce Jones. Hurst won the first-inning battle, striking out two in a one-two-three top half, whileH unter Martinez greeted Jones with a lead-off double in the bottom of the frame. Trent Lewis grounded to first to move Martinez to third and Hurst plated him with a ground-out to second for a 1-0 lead. But the second inning, which proved a trouble spot for Hurst in his Wednesday outing, again saw a loss of command. A ustin Cliffi singled to left and advanced to second on a wild pitch before Dylan Verdid rew a walk. Hurst snared a comebacker and alertly threw to third for a force, but Kody Stephensonf ollowed with a single up the middle to load the bases. B en Hovis then worked the count for a walk, forcing in Verdi, and the game was tied. Things stayed that way as both hurlers roared through the next few innings. Jones set the side down in order in the bottom of the second and Hurst struck out t he side in order in the top of the third. Jones also struck out the side in his half of the third, though it was momentari ly interrupted when birthday boy Zach Gopher was hit by a pitch. Hurst added two more strikeouts in a three up, three d own top of the fourth, and Jones struck out the first two batters in the bottom of the inning. By now, the frustration for both offenses was building and sometimes bubbling to the surface. He had a real good curve, because it didnt look like a curve, Hurst said of his mound foe. It didnt have the bend in it. It would start out straight and look like a fastball, but then it would either break across or down and away. He was real tough. But with two out in the fourth, Sebring began its rally. Lewis was hit by a pitch and Hurst singled up the middle.

C M Y K By EDDIE PELLS Associated PressAt the next Olympics, the team from the USAwill wear uniforms made in the USA. Designer Ralph Lauren announced Friday that the uniforms it provides the U.S. Olympic team at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, will, in fact, be made in the United States. The U.S. uniforms for the London Games were made in China, which sparked congressional criticism of the U.S. Olympic Committee. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the USOC should be ashamed of themselves and Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., called the decision not just outrageous, its just plain dumb. It is selfdefeating. Ralph Lauren initially declined comment on the criticism, but 24 hours later announced clothes for future Olympics would be made in the United States. Ralph Lauren has an apparel contract with the USOC through 2020. Ralph Lauren promises to lead the conversation within our industry and our government to address the issue to increase manufacturing in the United States, the company said in a statement. Its too late to change anything for the 530 American athletes in time for the London Games, which start July 27. The uniforms for Opening Ceremony will remain as planned blue blazer, cream-colored pants for men and skirts for women and a blue beret with red and white stripes. The USOC initially defended the choice of Ralph Lauren, saying it was grateful for the support from an iconic American company On Friday, USOC CEO Scott Blackmun said the federation takes the complaints seriously. e are absolutely committed ... to working with our sponsors to ensure that the concerns voiced are addressed, Blackmun said. In the meantime, we ask for the American peoples support. The members of Team USAhave dedicated the ir entire lives to training for this one moment. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, DN.Y., who along with Israel wrote a letter to the USOC chairman Larry Probst complaining about the situation, released a statement after hearing Fridays news. When Americas best athletes are representing our country on the world stage, we should be representing the best of American-made goods, she wrote. The pride of our Olympic athletics goes hand in hand with the pride of American innovation and manufacturing. While I am greatly disappointed our athletes will not be dressed head to toe in Made in the USAthis year, I thank the USOC and Ralph Lauren for hearing our voices and working to correct this mistake going forward. I look forward to cheering on Team USA. Associated PressThe Miami Marlins agreed to a contract with first-round draft pick Andrew Heaney, giving the Oklahoma State left-handera $2.6 million signing bonus. The deal Friday with the No. 9 overall selection was for $200,000 less than his slotted value under baseballs new labor contract. Heaney was selected Big 12 Conference pitcher of the year. He was 8-2 with a 1.60 ERAin 15 starts, and led the NCAAwith 140 strikeouts in 118 1-3 innings. Third baseman Richie Shaffer, taken by the Tampa Bay Rays with the 25th pick on the first round of last months amateur draft, agreed to a contract for a signing bonus of $1.71 million. The deal Friday with the 21-year-old was just below the slot value of $1,725,000 assigned under baseballs new labor contract. He batted .336 this year at Clemson with 10 homers, 46 RBIs, 63 walks, a .573 slugging average and a .480 on-base percentage. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, July 15, 2012Page 3D HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 0 0 1 1 7 7 LAKE DENTON CAMP; 3.639"; 5"; Black; july ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 0 0 5 5 3 3 By HOWARD ULMAN Associated PressLOUDON, N.H.

The most relaxed that Ive been able to be in weeks, Harvick said Friday. He got his wife DeLana to the hospital in North Carolina with little time to spare last Sunday when she gave birth to Keelan. She did a great job and had a baby within about two hours, Harvick said. Dad waited a little long to get her to the hospital. But he couldnt use his competitive driving skills because DeLana was in pain. e didnt make any real fast corners, he said. We could go straight and fast. I had been to the doctors office several times so I knew where every bump was. So I didnt get yelled at ont he drive over and that was my goal. Harvick had flown last Saturday morning from D aytona, where he was to compete that night at the I nternational Speedway. S eeing that the birth was not imminent, he returned about 3 p.m. to Daytona, where he was involved in a late accident and finished 23rd. Then he flew back home. Had Keelan arrived on Saturday, Harvick said he would have skipped the race. At sixth place in the standings, hes in good position to qualify for one of the 12s pots in the Chase with 10 races left before that begins. I was actually home and prepared not to come back if t hat situation had come to that point, Harvick said. If t hings would have progressed in the direction that they did S unday morning, I would have just stayed there. He had Kenny Wallace o n standby to replace him, but it wasnt necessary. Now he can approach his first race as a father without the uncertainty of not know-i ng how the birth would go. Theres just that anxiety. As you get closer you just want to know, is everybody g oing to be good?Harvick said. Its definitely a huge s ense of relief to be able to come to the track and everybody is smiling and healthy. That makes me feel a lot better Harvick to race for first time as father M CTphoto K evin Harvick will hit the New Hampshire Motor Speedway as a proud new papa. By RONALD BLUM Associated PressNEWYORK The first signing period under baseballs new draft restrictions ended with touted pitcher Mark Appel spurning Pittsburgh to remain at Stanford and with 10 teams exceeding their bonus pools but none by enough to forfeit future selections. Appel was the only unsigned player among 31f irst-round picks, turning d own an offer of $3.8 million from the Pirates. Appel was projected by some to be the No. 1 selection last month, but several teams shied away from the right-hander because of the expected demands of his a dviser, Scott Boras. Appel was selected eighth. That slot was assigned $2.9 million from the drafting teams bonus pool in baseballs new labor contract, which imposes penalties on clubs that exceed their threshold the total of the slots for a teams selections in the first 10 rounds. T he first pick was slotted for $7.2 million and Houston chose shortstop Carlos Correa, who agreedt o $4.8 million. Pittsburgh was prepared t o go as much as 5 percent above its threshold and i ncur the first level of penalty, a 75 percent tax on the o verage. But the Pirates didnt want to fall into higher levels, which include the loss of future draft picks. After much thought, prayer and analysis of both opportunities, I came to the conclusion the best decision is to remain at Stanford continuing my studies, finishing my degree and doing all I can to assist the Cardinal baseball team in our goal to win a national championship, Appel said in a statement. I greatly valued the prospect of a professional opportunity, and I will pursue a professional baseball career after getting my Stanford degree. Every team that went over stayed within 5 percent of its threshold, according to calculations by Major League Baseball: Boston, the Chicago Cubs, Houston, Kansas City, the Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Washington. e have shattered the productivity of many teams by putting an artificial cap on their decision-making, Boras said. Its horrible for baseball and illustrates a real failure in the system. Ateam going over by more than 5 percent but less than 10 percent would face a 100 percent tax on the overage and the loss of their next first-round draft pick. Penalties escalate to a 100 percent tax and the loss of a teams next firstand sec-o nd-round picks (10-15 perc ent over) and a 100 percent tax and the loss of a teams next two first-round selections (in excess of 15 percent). Five first-round picks reached agreements on the final day: LSU right-hander K evin Gausman with Baltimore ($4.32 million for the fourth pick), Oklahoma State left-hander Andrew Heaney with Miami ($2.6 million for ninth), high school right-hander Lucas Giolito with Washington ($2,925,000 for 16th Clemson third baseman Richie Shaffer, with Tampa Bay ($1.71 million for 25th and high school right-han-d er Ty Hensley with the Yankees ($1.2 million for 30th). Only six first-round picks s igned for more than slot: Gausman, Giolito and S haffer, along with Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert A lmora ($3.9 million for sixth), Los Angeles Dodgers s hortstop Corey Seager ($2.35 million for 18th Boston shortstop Deven Marrero ($2.05 million for 24th). Ten first-round selections signed exactly at slot and 14 signed below. Just nine players among the 338 taken in the first 10 rounds failed to sign. Among them was Connecticut second baseman L.J. Mazzilli, the son of former major league player and manager Lee Mazzilli. Selected by Minnesota in the ninth round, Mazzilli will return to the Huskies for his senior season. The signing deadline didt apply to Florida outfielder Preston Tucker because he is a college senior, and Houston has until a week before next years draft to sign the seventh-round pick. Because Appel failed to sign, Pittsburgh will get an extra pick in the first round next year, the ninth selection overall. The Mets will get an extra selection after the 11th pick of the second round for not signing high school righty Teddy Stankiewicz and Oakland will get an additional pick after the third round for failing to sign h igh school lefty Kyle Twomey. Appel, who turns 21 on Sunday, also failed to sign in 2009, when Detroit selected him in the 15th round with the 450th pick after his final season with Monte Vista High in San Ramon, Calif. Appel will go back into next years draft. Under the labor deal, agreed to in November, the deadline for draft picks to sign was 5 p.m. Friday, a month earlier than he rules in the previous collective bargaining agreement. The change led to fewer picks waiting until the final hours to sign. Trying to end a record streak of 19 consecutive losing seasons, the resurgent Pirates are tied with the Cincinnati Reds for the NL Central lead. e drafted Mark Appel to sign Mark Appel. We were excited about the opportunity to add him to a plethora of quality, young arms, Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said during a telephone conference call. It didnt happen. So now we turn the corner. This, too, shall pass. We move forward. Along with the extra pick next year, the Pirates also could gain an extra selection from baseballs first competitive balance draft, which will be held Wednesday in Secaucus, N.J. e may be looking at three of the top 45 picks in the country, Huntington s aid. Some have argued n ext years draft class is going to be better than this years draft class. B oras also represented p rior first-round picks Pedro Alvarez and Gerrit Cole in their negotiations with the Pirates. Selecting Mark was a calculated risk, as we knew he would be a difficult sign, Huntington said. As an organization, we need to continue to take these types of calculated risks. While we wouldve preferred to add Mark to the group of talented prospects in our system, we wish Mark, and his family, nothing but success in the future.

As the ball traveled towards Dragon second baseman Jackson Griffin, he stepped back to read it, slipped onto his knees in his a ttempt to charge and then fell to his stomach to make a heart-stopping, crowd pleasing catch to put an end to Sebrings offensive threats. Despite the emotional high, Lake Placid would not manage any more runs their last time in the batters box, thus crowning Sebring as the Dixie Youth AAAState Champions. Both teams made some unbelievable plays requiring skill beyond their years diving catches, back hands, and gymnastic-worthy stretches for the out made for some exciting moments. This was a major factor in the limited amount of runs throughout the night. Whatever happens today, just dont give up, said Sebring coach AnthonyG aines in a pep talk to his team Thursday night before game. Those words of encoura gement could easily describe the efforts of both t eams throughout the week. T he Dragons and the Streaks faced much adversity as they made their way through the bracket of the tournament. Lake Placid took a tough first loss early on but proved that they deserved to be in the final two as they eliminated team after team, making their way to the title game. Sebring had a more successful start, being undefeated until losing to Lake Placid 10-5 Wednesday, whichp inned them against West Seminole Thursday with the winner taking on Lake Placid yet again in the champio nship game. And Sebring, down 9-4 in t heir final at bat against West Seminole in Thursdays s emifinal, saw a last-ditch explosion of 11 runs before halting a four-run rally to take a 15-13 win. T his made the final faceoff between these county rivals even more exciting. The bats just didnt come alive tonight is all, said Dragon head coach Tracy Carpenter. Its been a fun ride. We hope to do it again next year. Im very proud of these boys. We came here and lost our first game Saturday and they battled back all the way u p to this. What else could I ask for? Desmond was big today coach Gaines said. He p itched three innings the first game and they hit him pret ty good, but thats what he does: he just throws strikes and if they hit them he doesnt get rattled. Then he came over here and hit his spots; Im really proud of him. Im really proud of all the kids today. We couldnt have won this tournament withouta ll twelve of them. They all stepped up.

Ozone state title goes Sebrings way By BRETTMARTEL Associated PressNEWORLEANS Drew Brees and the Saints reached a deal on par with the quarterbacks record-setting play, giving New Orleansfans some news they can celebrate after an offseason rife with turmoil. The team announced Friday that it had agreed to a fiveyear contract with Brees. Aperson familiar with the deal said its for $100 million,w ith $60 million guaranteed. T he deal will also pay the quarterback $40 million the first year, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial details had not been publicly announced. Brees posted a note on his T witter page reading, Deal is Done! Love you, Who Dat Nation. See you soon! He had been tagged as the Saintsexclusive franchise player and could not negotiate with other teams. Had a deal not been reached, the tender for a quarterback was worth$ 16.3 million. Brees would have had to play for thata mount or hold out for a better o ne-year deal, which would h ave left his long-term f uture in New Orleans uncertain. Brees skipped the Saintsoffseason practices while holding out for his new long-term contract, which now gives him the highest average annual pay ($20 millionhistory. Buffalo defensive end Mario Williams also has a $100 million contract, but for six years. ith a contract like this, people can say theyre paying me what you earned or what you deserved. In my mind, I always feel like Ive got to go out every day and earn it and show people why youre at that level, Brees said in an interview Friday night with the Saintsradio network, WWL-AM. I can tell you from the start of this negotiation, I have not thought once about, Hey, I want to be the highest-paid guy or what have you.... It was more about trying to look truly, just objectively, at the numbers the last decade for a top-tier quarterback and where it has been and where it is going and just trying to do what is fair and justified. Now Brees is set to report for the opening of Saints training camp on July 24, a needed dose of good news for a club whose offseason has been plagued by the bounty scandal that resulted in the season-long suspensions of coach Sean Payton and linebacker Jonathan Vilma, among other sanctions. What Drew has accomplished in his time with the Saints, he deserves to be the highest paid player in the league, Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said. e are excited to have this deal done and behind us and look forward to the next five years with Drew as our quarterback. Breesteammates quickly took to Twitter to congratulate him. Safety Malcolm Jenkins wrote Congrats bro ... Youve changed the game on and off the field!!! No oned eserves it more than you. T ight end Jimmy Graham tweeted: Congrats (at brees ... very happy for you, your family and all the Whodat Nation .... lets go get the trophy Even LSU coach Les Miles chimed in, tweeting: Its a g reat day for New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. Congrats to both Drew Brees and the Saints on reaching a deal. Who Dat! The contract, which includes a $37 million signing bonus, also gives the Saints more flexibility under the NFLs salary cap. Because bonuses count against the cap on a pro-rated basis over the life of the contract $7.4 million per year in Breescase the quarterback will cost the club only $10.4 million against the cap in 2012. That gives Loomis nearly $6 million more in wiggle room to manage the entire roster than if Brees had played for the franchise tag. His cap number will rise well above $20 million by the final years of his deal, but Loomis will at least have more time to plan for that, and the current salary cap of about $120 million is expected to have risen by then. New Orleans had designated Brees, 33, its franchise player in March after the club was unable to reach a new long-term extension before his previous six-year, $60 million contract expired. Brees, however, was steadfast in not wanting to play for a one-year deal. During the past six seasons, Brees has not only led the Saints to their only Super Bowl title, but has completed more passes (2,488 yards (28,394 touchdowns (201 other quarterback in the NFL. His 67.8 percent completion rate spanning the past six seasons also tops the league. In 2011, Brees set NFLsingle-season records with 468 completions, 5,476 yards passing and a completion percentage of 71.2. His prolific passing numbers helped the Saints set an NFLhigh for total offensive yards in a season with 7,474. Breesyards passing record shattered a mark of 5,084 set by Dan Marino back in 1984. He led the Saints to a 13-3 regular-season record and second NFC South title in three seasons. New Orleans defeated Detroit in the first round of the playoffs before falling in the final seconds of its second-round game at San Francisco. Arriving in New Orleans the season after Hurricane Katrina struck, Brees has become arguably the most popular sports figure in the citys history. In addition to leading the club to its lone Super Bowl title for the 2009 season, Brees has become a civic pillar of the community. He and his wife have worked through their Brees Dream foundation to sponsor about$ 8 million in projects primarily aimed at improving the l ives of children in the area through t he refurbishing of schools o r renovation of athletic f ields and facilities. His foundation also has supported the arts, along with hospital facilities for cancer patients. In the Big Easy, he enjoys the status of royalty, even being invited to serve as the honorary king of some of the citys biggest Mardi Gras parades. This offseason marked the first time Brees had the opportunity to negotiate a major, long-term deal with the leverage provided by a string of injury-free seasons highlighted by a slew of individual and team statistical records, in addition to a championship. He commanded only second-round money when he was drafted by San Diego, and the Chargers placed the one-year franchise tag on him when that deal ran out in 2005. The right-handed Brees then had an injury the following season that required major surgery to his throwing shoulder, and which left him with few major offers during the 2006 offseason. He wound up signing the six-year deal in New Orleans that left him playing for well below what the top quarterbacks in the league earned during the past few seasons. Breesnew deal tops the previous benchmark contract for elite QBs set by the $96 million, five-year deal Denver gave earlier this offseason to Peyton Manning, who is three years older than Brees and sat out last season while recovering from neck surgery.

C M Y K As mentioned in last w eeks article, there is a special dedication to Major Tommy McGuire during the Centennial focus week at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20. It will b eheld at Sebring Regional Airport. Its hard to imagine why so few people know the name Thomas McGuire. Besides b eing a top pilot, an Air Force base is named in his honor and hes buried in a prominent place in Arlington National Cemetery. Even in Sebring only a few r emembrances of McGuire remain. In an exceptional p lace in the foyer of Sebring High School is a photograph of an Air Force officer and b elow it is the following inscription: The late Thomas B McGuire, whose memory is preserved by the naming of McGuires Air Force Base, was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey, on August 1, 1920. He g raduated from Sebring High School in 1938 and attended t he Georgia School of Technology and entered the United States Army Air C orps in 1941. In February 1942, he was commissioned a sa Second Lieutenant and was rated a pilot. During World War II he was assigned t o the Fifth Air Force, where he received honors including the Purple Heart with one c luster, the Air Medal with nine clusters, the D istinguished Flying Cross with five clusters, the Silver Star with two clusters, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Congressional Medal of H onor, all for gallantry in action against the Japanese. His battle citations include the Asian-Pacific Campaign Medal and the Victory Medal. McGuire lost his life in the service of his country on January 7, 1945, while flying over Negros Island in the Philippines. It was for his extraordinary gallantry and action beyond the call of duty on this final mission and for shooting down seven Japanese aircraft in aerial combat over Luzon on December 25 and 26, 1944, that he was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Major McGuire destroyed thirtyeight enemy aircraft in aerial combat and was on e of the most skillful and courageous airmen of World War II. The year was 1944. Major Thomas B. McGuire Jr. was celebrating Christmas in the cockpit of a Lockheed P-38 Lightning. Flying support for a B-24, it didnt take long for the Japanese to come calling. McGuire aimed his sights at the first Japanese to hone in on the bombers. With a quick burst of .50 calibre machine gun fire, McGuire sent the Japanese fighter spinning out of sight. It was his 31st kill of the war, only nine behind the record. The war was nearly at Japans doorstep when McGuire inched toward becoming top ace of the war. His record earned him top billing in newspapers across the country, especially in Sebring.

Medal of Honor winner McGuire remembered with dedications Centennial Notebook By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Sheriff Susan Benton announced on Friday that her office has launched a new sex offender registration and public notification website called OffenderWatch. Highlands County will now be part of a nationwide network of over 5,000 law enforcement agencies, which includes 12 full state applications, Benton said in a press release. According to Benton, the new service is a citizenfriendly, easy-to-use website that enables citizens to search for potentially dangerous sex offenders and predators who may be in close proximity to their homes, places of work, schools, churches and day care centers. The information is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is updated in real time by the Highlands County Sheriffs Office as offender information changes and is reported. As part of this new, innovative service, citizens may enter any address of interest to them, and see a map and listing of all offenders within a user defined radius from .25 miles out to 2 miles, the release stated. Citizens can then register the address to be continuously monitored and receive email alerts if an offender or predator should register an address within their specified radius of their address. Citizens may confidentially register as many addresses as they like, at no cost. Citizens have a right to know who may be living near them and could potentially pose a threat to their families. The Florida Sheriffs have the most up-to-date information on all offenders registered in the state and I am happy to be able to provide that information to our citizens, Benton said. Along with the maps and e-mail alerts, the sheriff has provided additional webbased resources designed to educate and inform the public on ways to keep their families safe. Citizens can access the OffenderWatch registry at the HCSO OffenderWatch web page at www.sheriffalerts.com/fl/hig hlands/ or by going to the HCSO home page at www.highlandssheriff.org/ and clicking on the Offender Watch box at the bottom of the page.

I tried different things to induce slumber. I lay in bed with my eyes firmly shut,telling myself to go to sleep. Didnt work. I got up and goofed around on F acebook for a little bit. Nope. My body wasnt going to fall back asleep until it was good and ready. At one point I was laying in bed,trying to relax. That w as when I noticed the roach on the ceiling. This bug got my attention and held it. He wasnt over the bed,but off to the side,completely still on the ceiling. He was probably the size of a quarter. I mentioned his existence to Don,who was wide awake at this horrendously early hour on purpose. He acknowledged the roachs presence and proceeded to get ready for work. I eyed the insect suspiciously. It moved a little bit a way from me but seemed content to stand on the ceiling,ignoring my death glare. While Don was getting dressed I asked him a rational question:How am I supposed to sleep with a roach on the ceiling? This should have been his cue to do something about the intruder. Instead, he replied,By closing your eyes and forgetting about it. Yeah,right. Furthermore,Don told me that the roach had no interest in coming off the ceiling to get me and was probably shedding his old shell and growing a new one because he was getting bigger. For some strange reason none of this was reassuring. The upshot was that the man I love left me with a roach on the ceiling in the bedroom to go to work. I am trying not to hold this against him. You may ask why I didnt get up on a chair or get a broom and dispatch the critter myself. It is a good question. Had it been on the floor I might have bee n able to make myself stomp on it,even though thats a lot closer than I want to be to a roach. But I kept having visions of my swinging something at the roach and it falling down somewhere on me. My head,for example,or my arm. Such an occurrence would have turned me into a shrieking,shuddering mess of a woman. Don probably wouldve found me huddled in a corner,hands over my head, whimpering when he got home from work that day. Instead and I cant believe this happened I finally fell asleep. When I woke up,the roach had moved further away from the bed,which w as good news. The bad news was it hung on the ceiling near my closet, between me and the bathroom,meaning I had to pass under it if I was going to go about my day. I managed to scuttle past the thing without it dropping on me (and I knew it was just waiting for the chance) and spent the day a voiding it as much as possible. When Don came home I noted the bug was still on the ceiling and it needed to die. Now. Thankfully,this time Don was kind enough to send the roach into the afterlife for me,and my bedroom is bug-free. At least I think it is. And if I see another bug on the ceiling in the wee hours of the morning? Im going to do the mature, rational thing this time,and insist Don kill it before he goes to work.

Sacrifice seems too much of an impositionEditor: In 1776,Thomas Paine wrote: These are the times that try mens souls the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will,in this crisis,shrink from the service of their country ... He went on to set a standard for American patriotism,a standard that recognizes that true patriotism involves sacrifice. In our current malaise,we have come to mistake flag wavers and posturers as patriots,not recognizing the need for sacrifice on behalf of the country as the true mark of patriotism. Those who have served in the military understand the essence of that sacrifice. In our politics today the top 1 percent of our country,those who have accumulated most of the wealth in our country have resisted anattempt to increase their tax obligations in order to help the economy. Sacrifice,a mere increase in financial contributions to the government in the current crisis, seems too much of an imposition,an unreasonable sacrifice,despite the needs of the country and the unquestionable ability of the wealthy to pay. Todayssummer soldiers and sunshine patriotsdrape themselves with the mantle ofjob creatorswhile they invest offshore and pursue profit at the expense of all else. Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidGood teachers influence lifeEditor: I am a Sebring High School graduate. My most memorable teachers were Joe Moore,Alan Rankin,Larry Isbell and Paul Gustat. One never forgets the teachers who pushed the hardest. I do remember being embarrased to the point of tears by all four. I also remember staying up all night and studying until I got it right. I am 60 years old,and I got it right. Thank you Mr. Moore,Mr. Rankin, Mr. Isbell,and Mr. Gustat. Sherry Poff FloridaAct of kindness a great thing to shareEditor: Ive read many a story of acts of kindnessand I always get goose bumps when I read them. Well,today was my turn. After having a stressful morning at the doctors,I went to the drive-thru at McDonalds in Lake Placid. When I got to the window to pay I was told the lady in the vehicle in front of me had paid for my order. I asked the cashier, what do you mean and who was she. She said,Im sorry,I didnt think to ask. I wasnt paying attention to the vehicle or the person in front of me,so I dont know who she is or why she did this. I just want to thank her. This act of kindnessreally made my day. Now its my turn to give the act of kindness. Lois McGrady Lake Placid The council was unable to decide,however,voting instead to request more information. The situation seemed s traightforward to us. Dan Andrews,of Paragon E vent Professionals,asked the towns permission to host a two-day,four-event, O lympic-distance triathlon experience that would potent ially bring 500 athletes and 1,500 spectators into Lake Placid. We can see no downside. The idea is a perfect fit w ith the Tourism Development Councils marketing efforts. It supports the tried-and-true formula of using sports as one of the three legs of tourism in the county. It also creates a family friendly atmosphere. Visitors to the town have to eat and sleep somewhere,and maybe buy gas so it brings cash into the county. P aragon made clear it would include all of the community and offer non-profit organizations the opportunity to raise funds over the two days. Paragon also made clear it w as willing to pay for any expenses incurred to the city for the use of public property and services. Finally,all the proceeds from one of the events would be given back to the Highlands County YMCA and Julies Funds for Kids, both non-profit organizations. During the debate it became clear the council was concerned about how Lake Placid was going to be represented,and how it would be protected from all liability. But,was that the real problem? We think the reluctance was more philosophical. P aragon is a for-profit company and it stands to make money from the event. Some folks on the dais and in the audience were opposed to that. They took exception to a for-profit business using publicly funded parks to make, well,a profit. Its that pesky profit thats the fly in the ointment. The question is,why? If a for-profit business is willing to reserve a park or beach,pay the fees and provide insurance and cleanup, what can be wrong? Arent for-profit businesses taxpayers too? Dont they deserve use of the parks and beaches they help support? Go a step further. Arent jobs being created? Isnt money being circulated? Lets not be silly. Profit is how business survives. Surviving businesses are how communities thrive. Thriving communities create the biggest pies. Which means there is a slice for everyone at the table. At its Monday night meeting the Lake Placid Town Council debated whether or not to allow a forprofit business access to public property for a money making event. Everyone would profit from triathlon in Lake Placid

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING For a second time, the Highlands County Health Department has received national recognition from the National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) for preparedness planning, ability to respond to public health emergencies and quality improvements. This national recognition is called Project Public Health Ready (PPHR). The Highlands County Health Department has been working diligently to achieve this recognition since 2007 when it initially applied for and received this honor. Recognition can be applied for every five years after meeting a comprehensive list of national standards. I would like to thank our Emergency Management Team for this huge accomplishment. This recognition reflects tremendous effort, dedication and cooperation on the part of our employees and community partners, said Robert Palussek, administrator for the health department. This recognition means we can protect our community more effectively and efficiently from public health threats. Also, I know that I should thank Paula Anderson who had been such a big help as the Project Public Health Ready Project Manager in Tallahassee and her recent replacement, Aaron Otis, Training and Exercise Unit Manager, who had presented our completed work for National Review. And much appreciation goes to Chuck Krug, Regional Emergency Preparedness Planning Consultant, who served as our mentor through this process, added Tom Moran, Planning Consultant for the health department. PPHR is a competencybased training and recognition program that assesses preparedness and assists local health departments, or groups of local health departments working collaboratively as a region, to respond to emergencies. It builds preparedness capacity and capability through a continuous quality improvement model. By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Its a wrap for the newest production in Highlands County, a short film based on the life of former Lake Placid resident Melvil Dewey. The Melvil Dewey DVD is produced by the local company Big Byte Video Productions, but was thought up by Harriet Potter, head of the Tour Lake Placid organization Tour Lake Placid is designed to bring visitors into town. When people come to look at our murals we do all we can to make their visit much more appealing than just that. We are hoping that this movie will bring a lot more people into the Historical Society to see this, said Porter. The last few scenes of the production were shot Saturday morning at the Lake Placid Historical Society Museum. The production began in November but was spread out due to the school schedules of two of the actors, Chabeli Ravelo and Jackie Alonso. We are hoping to have a 15to 20minute DVD, said Director Rick Shorrock. There is no set date for the release of the film, but producer Kay Tarr hopes to have the DVD completed and ready to sell by the fall. The DVD depicts the famous Dewey, his life and how he brought the town of Lake Placid through its early years. Theres a lot of history in it that deals with Dewey and the early settlers of the town, said Tarr. The film will be shown at the 21st Annual Caladium Festival on Aug. 2426.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK To provide more adult learners throughout Florida with a high school credential, the South Florida State College Testing Center is partnering with GED Testing Service to offer the GED test on computer. Registration and scheduling will be available to candidates on Monday and testing will begin on Monday, July 30. Registering, scheduling and testing on computer will provide a new experience and new benefits for GED test-takers. These new features will improve the GED testing program which is a gateway for adults to find jobs or better paying jobs, enter the workforce or college training programs, and better support themselves and their families. The GED test on computer is the same test content currently offered on paper. Its accompanying systems will provide an array of new benefits for both the testing center and GED test-takers. Some of the initial benefits include one-stop online registration and scheduling available 24/7, flexible testing appointments for testtakers, instant test scores on four of five content areas, an introduction of basic keyboarding and computer skills and enhanced test security Test-takers interested in taking the test on computer at the SFSC Testing Center should go to www.GEDtestingservice.co m. The SFSC Testing Center is located on the Highlands Campus in Avon Park. Offering GED testing on computer also has increased accessibility and flexibility for test-takers, since a double-digit increase in the number of GED test-takers is expected by 2013. Anew GED assessment is scheduled to be released in January 2014, and a significant number of adults who haven't taken or passed all five content areas will want to test before their scores expire at the end of 2013. To learn more about the GED testing program at the SFSC Testing Center, email testing@southflorida.edu or call 784-7214. to a C. Two schools held their own. Avon Park Middle School and Cracker Trail Elementary School both maintained Cs. The remaining schools all lost a grade level, but only Memorial Elementary School was graded a D. Park Elementary, Sun N Lake Elementary and HillGustat Middle schools all dropped to a B. Fred Wild Elementary, Woodlawn Elementary and Lake Placid Middle schools went from a B to a C. There was considerable trepidation this year regarding individual student scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment T est and the school grade assignments based on those scores. In an effort to raise rigor and overall standards, the test itself was made more difficult and students were required to get a larger number of correct answers to be judged as performing at grade level. In addition, in order to earn an exemption from portions of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, students with disabilities and non-native English speakers testing results were included in the school grade calculations. Because of these changes, school grades were predicted to fall. In fact, they have. According to an article by John OConner, at StateImpact Florida.npr.org, last year percent of Florida elementary and middle schools earned an A grade. This year the percent fell to 43 percent. Thats 357 fewer schools earning an A. At the other end of the spectrum, an additional 16 schools also earned an F for a total of 47. The percentage of schools earning B, C, and D also increased, with the number of D schools almost doubling. Highlands County educators are pleased with the results. Because of the entire districts hard work, percent of our elementary and middle schools earned a grade of A, B or C. This exceeded the state total of 89 percent, the school board said in a press release. It thanked administrators, teachers, support staff, students, parents and the community for their hard work and support during a difficult year of shifting standards and adjusted scoring.

Beyond the teams hard work, however, Disler credits community support, especially from the Parent Teacher Organization, and specific programs and policies within the school. Disler said the key to successful teaching is in building a relationship with the student, which is why her starting point is hiring the most energetic, best trained and passionate teachers she can. Then we work very hard to provide our teachers with specific training that focuses on what needs to be done, she said. Beyond that, in-class tutoring is emphasized and provided by volunteers in reading, math and writing either individually or in small groups, at all levels, but especially in the second grade. After-school tutoring is provided for migrant children, especially in the first, second and third grades. Disler said another important component is that the school has a culture of teacher communication. Not only does she insist that all teachers of a particular grade level meet every week after school for sessions of common planning, but teachers themselves created three professional learning committees that meet once a month for more in-depth discussion and communication. The school strongly benefits from its community and a dedicated PTO, Disler said. She described a variety of contributions from individual dentists and opticians who provide care to students, to local businesses that bring enhancement programs into the classrooms. But the PTO is outstanding, she said, with phenomenal fundraising and ideas. This year alone, she said, the PTO bought 150 new classroom computers. Which led Disler to another element, keeping the school on the cutting edge of technology. Teachers have smartboards, projectors and lap tops, she said. Were trying to stay on top of techno logy and integrating it into the classroom. It makes learning more interesting for the students and prepares them for the future. Im very proud of being able to do that. She added an effort is made to also keep software up to date. Finally, Disler said, she had essential support from the district. The school was allocated an additional paraprofessional, for example, to help with its large population of non-native English speakers. The school was also provided with a second computer lab this year, and there is a plan for a third. Disler said the district has kept Lake Placid the largest elementary school in the county, with 800 students from being overwhelmed by its population. Class sizes have been kept down to manageable levels. District administrators specializing in federal and state grants and programs find ways to provide enhancement the school. Disler laughed. I could go on and on, she said. Continued from page 1A Gutierrez to get away, which was heard by a witness, and pulled out a cell phone. The witness intervened and Gutierrez fled the area in his Saturn. Gutierrez was later stopped and identified by police in the vicinity of the incident. Coogan reported that Gutierrez has two prior conviction one for for lewd and lascivious assault and one for sexual battery by threats, both in 1990. The City of Avon Park Police Department is actively looking for other children Gutierrez may have had the same type of encounters with, Coogan said. Gutierrez is currently being held without bond in the Highlands County Jail. Anyone with knowledge of this case or any other potential victims of Gutierrez are encouraged to contact the APPD Criminal Investigation Division at 452-4422. Continued from page 1A that goal. During the last months of the war when he was only t wo kills short of the record, he crashed during a combat maneuver over Los Negros Islands. But with 38 kills to his credit, McGuire is recogn ized as the second greatest ace of World War II. More importantly, he left behind a legacy as probably the most skillful pilot to ever sit in the c ockpit of a P-38. McGuire moved to Sebring with his mother w hen he was 9 years old and lived at 10 Kenilworth Blvd. Even as a boy, he had a love f or airplanes. Immediately after graduat ion he left Sebring for Georgia Tech University. In 1941, before receiving his c ollege diploma and before the outbreak of the war, he e nlisted in the Air Force as an aviation cadet. McGuire was first stationed in Alaska and didnt get into combat until 1943. McGuire piloted the P-38, one of the most versatile f ighter planes of the war. With a top speed of 414 MPH, the P-38 shot down m ore Japanese planes than any other fighter. Day after d ay during 1943 and McGuire proved himself, cutting a deadly swath t hrough enemy defenses. In a two-day period, he shot down seven Japanese planes. For that he was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. When Bong was sent home in 1944 it seemed certain that McGuire would surpass his record, but fate would soon catch up. Ironically, it wasnt the enemy that sent McGuire to his death on January 7, 1945; it was the law of aerodynamics. During desperate low-altitude maneuvers while trying to help a fellow fighter who was being attacked by a Japanese Zero, McGuires engines stalled. His airplane plunged into the jungle and burst into flames. McGuire was killed instantly. During the Centennial celebration focus week, at 3 p.m. Oct. 20, make it a point to attend this wonderful dedication to Thomas B. McGuire.

We have grants for temporary housing. We can provide rental assistance for up to 18 months following a disaster. There are funds available for some repairs to make a home habitable; minimal repairs like roof replacing, things like that, Walker said.

After that we have an appointment set up for an inspector to visit the damaged property. They come out and look around, said Walker. Within a few days of calling, if the applicant is approved, a check is either mailed to the specified address or direct deposited into the applicants bank account. The entire process usually takes between 7 to 10 days, according to Walker.

C M Y K of Charm Friday morning to talk about issues with potential constitutions. I am hear to listen, he said when asked why the visit. Folks at the Oaks have health care as well as other concerns. I want to learn and discuss what their issues are, Pigman said. We are discussing health care, Medicare and Medicaid. We all have to pay for Medicare and Medicaid, Pigman said. That social contract is extremely important. Pigman stated that he strongly believes the country must solve the challenges facing health care in America without losing the quality of care or damaging the doctor-patient relationship. Pigman does not want to turn health care over to government bureaucracy and bury it in red tape, but states that he believes in helping small businesses offer affordable health care to their employees, and providing an insurance deduction for the self employed. Pigman spent six years in the U.S. Navy as a battalion surgeon attached to the 2nd Marine Division. When his tour was over, Pigman went on to become a faculty member at George Washington University. According to his website, Pigman moved to Highlands County 17 years ago and currently resides in Lake Placid. The challenges Florida faces require a mix of bold leadership and commonsense principles. Ive proudly served my country and now I would like to serve our community in Tallahassee, Pigman stated on his website. Pigman recently completed a tour of duty in Northern Iraq as a Lt. Colonel and physician and has worked in all facets of the medical field, including health insurance and utilization, his website says.

(Gene) Overbey, married on July 21, 1944; a son, William R. Oberbey and three sisters.

OBITUARIES Allyn Overbey Pigman visits Oaks at Avon municipalities. Each municipality agrees to abide by the t erms of the master trust agreement. The fund encompasses 199 plans, of which 133 are Defined Contribution Plans, 48 Defined Benefit plans and 15 Other Post Employment Benefit Plans. Shamoun said there were more than 5,500 participants in total and $360 million in assets. The plan is overseen by a board of trustees and an investment advisory committee. Investment management, performance monitoring, custodial banking, record keeping and actuarial services are bundled into a full-service administration. According to Shamoun, the municipal pension fund has a high quality bias and makes conservative investments to seek long-term growth of capital, consistent returns and avoiding extreme volatility in the market valuation. Big spikes in the market, mean big spikes in the budget, he said. Typically, the pension plan assumes a 7.5 percent return on investments. One of the biggest advantages to the Leagues pension plan is the economy of scale, Shamoun said. Another is lowered administrative costs. He said Avon Park police officers could expect $27,000 to $28,000 in administration savings and firefighters would see approximately $25,000. By state statute, it is up to the to board of trustees of the Avon Park police and fire pension fund to decide on the pension funds future. The city council, on the other hand, has the right to decide whether or not to contract law enforcement services to another organization. According to the Florida constitution, however, electors have the ultimate say when transferring power from the local to the county i.e. from police department to sheriffs office.

C M Y K LIVING B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, July 15, 2012 Summers here! Time to fire up the grill,soak up some rays,head to the pool and,well,relax. But dont let your guard down too much. The summer months can bring a few dangers,too. Heres guide to playing it safe this summer. By Sharon Thompson and Le Datta Grimes Illustrations by Chris WareMcClatchy NewspapersSUN SAFETY To avoid sunburn,babies younger than 6 months old should be kept out of the direct sunlight. Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside,and use sunscreen even on cloudy days. Reapply every two hoursand make sure you get the ears and at the hairline Use a water-resistant sunscreen labeled broad-spectrum protection(protects against UVB and UVA rays) with a sun protection factor (SPF)of at least 15. Limit your familys time in the sun during the hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. thats when the suns rays are strongest.FIRST AID Make a first-aid kit to take on picnics,to the beach,wherever. Some things to include:a box of bandages,sterile gauze,elastic bandage,small scissors,tweezers,adhesive tape,needles,matches,hydrocortisone cream,ipecac syrup,antibiotic ointment,instant cold pack,alcohol swabs,prescription medicines and emergency phone numbers (for your doctor,hospital and poison control).BUG OFF! To remove a visible bug stinger from skin, gently scrape it horizontally with a credit card or your fingernail. You also can remove a stinger by pinching it out with a pair of tweezers or your fingers. To help keep bugs away,dont use scented soap,perfume or hairspray on your child. If the mosquitoes are biting,spray clothes and exposed skin with mosquito repellent containing DEET. Dont apply repellents containing permethrin directly to skin.PLAY TIME Carefully maintain all play equipment, including playground swings and slides. Swings should be made of soft materials such as rubber,plastic or canvas. Make sure children cannot reach any moving parts on equipment that might pinch or trap a body part. Make sure metal slides are cool to prevent childrens legs from getting burned.OUTTA HERE? Whether trekking across country or running to the grocery store,be sure to buckle up car seats and seat belts. Keep children entertained with car games, activity books and story tapes. Keep supplies in the car,such as snacks, water,a first-aid kit and any medicines your family takes. Always use a car seat,starting with your babys first ride home from the hospital. Help your child form a lifelong habit of buckling up. Put your child in the back seat. It is the safest place in the car because it is farthest away from a head-on crash (the most common type).IN THE SWIM Never leave children alone in or near the pool,even for a moment. Make sure adults watching young children in the pool know CPR and can rescue a child if necessary. If you have a pool at home, surround it with a sturdy,5-foot fence. Keep rescue equipment (a shepherds hook and a life preserver) and a telephone near the pool. Avoid inflatable swimming aids,such as floaties.They are not a substitute for approved life vests and can give children a false sense of security. Children are not developmentally ready for swim lessons until after they are 4. Swim programs for children younger than 4 should not be seen as a way to decrease the risk of drowning.YUMMY IN THE TUMMY Give the grill a thorough cleaning with grill or oven cleaner. If you have a gas grill,check all the connections and replace any hose as needed. Clean the grills rack by setting it in place as soon as the ignited coals have been spread out. Let the heat burn off any food residue on the grills. Clean the grill every few weeks to avoid buildup of carbon and residual food and grease. If youre in a hurry,speed up grilling time by partially pre-cooking chicken,ribs,potatoes, carrots and other slow-cooking food in the oven or microwave. Light coals about 30 minutes before cooking. To determine if the coals are ready,hold your palm 5 inches over the fire. If you can hold it there for only two to three seconds,the fire is hot; if you can stand four to five seconds,the fire is medium; tolerating a full six seconds means the fire is low. Never use kerosene or gasoline to start a charcoal fire in the grill. Avoid using chemical starters or chemically treated briquettes as well,as they will affect the taste of your food. If youre picnicking,keep perishable foods ham,potato or macaroni salad,hamburgers, hot dogs,lunch meat,deviled eggs,custard or cream pies in a cooler with ice. Put leftovers back in the cooler as soon as you finish eating. Toddlers can choke trying to swallow many picnic foods whole,such as hot dogs,hard-boiled eggs or marshmallows. Cut hot dogs lengthwise in narrow strips before serving; slice up other foods into small bite-size pieces and keep children seated while eating. If youre traveling,store the cooler in the passenger area of the car during the trip. Its cooler there than in the trunk.Researcher Linda Niemi contributed to this article.

C M Y K Dear Abby: Shortly after my wife and I were married, my wife got pregnant. Due to complications with the pregnancy,the baby had to be delivered early through a C-section. Our baby didnt make it. That was four years ago. After unsuccessfully trying to conceive for almost a year now,my wife decided she wanted to find out why. We learned that there is a problem that was most likely caused by the C-section. Although we are still trying to see what can be done, there is a good chance that things wont be as easy as we expected regarding a pregnancy. Im personally in no hurry,but my wife is suffering a great deal as a result of this. Im trying to ease things for her,telling her that this is not her fault and that were in this together, and trying to reassure her that she is more important to me than kids. However,she keeps saying that Im just saying it, and with time I will change my mind and start to think about having kids. She says this is a basic instinct and it will eventually show up. My question is:Is life without kids unbearable to an extent that we might reach a point we wont be able to continue together? Confused Husband in Jordan Dear Confused Husband: There are many happily childless couples. But before you and your wife reconcile to being one of them,consult an ob/gyn who specializes in infertility. Thanks to advances in medical science, there is more than one way to become parents. If your wife isnt able to carry a pregnancy to term because of her surgery,you may be able to hire a surrogate to do it. The baby would result from your sperm and your wifes egg and be your biological child. Its possible that your wife is depressed and could benefit from talking with a mental health professional. I hope you both will start doing some research to find out what options are available to you including adoption if you wish to become parents. Dear Abby: I am a happily married English lady who came to the United States in 1985. I have a good career working for the same company for more than 20 years. My husband and I have no children. We enjoy travel and twice a year visit my aging parents in England. My problem is that my guilt for not being there for my parents is growing stronger by the day. Im an only child and feel that although they are both in relatively good health,they really need me. To move there would be financially impossible for us. Every year for the past 10 years we have spent a total of four weeks with them in England. I call them every three days on the phone,and yet the guilt continues to build. Is what Im doing acceptable,or am I a bad daughter for choosing to live my life so far away from them? They know that if anything happened and they needed me,Id be on the next plane to be with them. Conflicted in Florida Dear Conflicted: You are not a bad daughter.You are a caring daughter who has made a success of her life, and who,because she loves her parents,is making herself crazy over choices she made years ago that she cant change. You are doing more for your parents than many people do,so stop flogging yourself. Please!

Its my Moms birthday and a milestone worthy of extra notice. Today my Mom is 90. Any who know her wouldnt even consider that she is near that age. She is spirited and active, appropriately fashionable and looks much younger than her years. Even in the various trials of lifemost recently Glaucoma surgery that had many challenges in recoveryshe persevered. Oh, she had her moments,as we all do. But,she exhibited faith,hope and endurance in handling the delicate balance of caring for herself and my Dad. And,because she is very active,her most supreme test came in obeying doctors orders of doing next to nothing while she healed. Mom gave birth to me when she was 25 years old. That,too,was a time when this young and vibrant mother-to-be was called upon to rely on Gods strength and not her own. In her mid-sixties,an age I am now experiencing,my Grandmother graduated to her heavenly home before my Mom had given birth to me. That trauma caused her doctor to order bed rest for the remaining months of her pregnancy so not to risk losing me. What a bitter-sweet time. Unexpected grief in death mingled with joyful expectancy of new life. Her diligence and love demonstrated in that time of grieving and hope are character traits I admire and aspire to; and,for which Im so grateful. Mom has taught me so much; yet, she would be the first to let you know she is not perfect. None of us are. I used to think if I could be half the mother to my children that she was to me,Id be doing great. And,yet,she always encouraged me to strive for more and go beyondto be all I could be in the Lord. Mom lived through the Great Depression and W orld War II with all of her brothers serving at once. She remembers how difficult it was to find a wedding dress right after t he war. But,she did. And,what a beautiful bride she was. But,it is her inner beauty which has and continues to shine through in her sacrificial love for her husband and children. Happy birthday,Mom. Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also,and he praises her,says Proverbs 31:28, NKJV. I thank God that you are a woman who fears the Lord and has honored him in your life with faith,hope and love. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. Her children call her blessed Pause And Consider Jan Merop Metro ServicesAries (March 21-April 20) A vacation could be in the works in the next few w eeks,Aries. Because tasks can seem to sneak up on you,get the planning started early and work up an itinerary. Taurus (April 21-May 21) Take some time to look through your checkbook or online bills history, Taurus. You may have a few unexpected expenses on the horizon and youll need some extra cash. Gemini (May 22-June 21) Loss is not something easily overcome,Gemini. If youve lost someone you love due to relocation or illness,surround yourself with a good support team until you rebound a bit. Cancer (June 22-July 22) Never say never, Cancer,because you may look foolish when you eventually do the things you said you never would. Instead,be open to all possibilities and opportunities. Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Great ideas often arrive with little effort,Leo. Its turning those ideas into a working project that can often take a lot of energy. However,youre up for the challenge. Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) For the most part youre insistent on doing things yourself and taking the difficult route,Virgo. Try to let go a little this week and let someone else handle things for a change. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra,you may have your heart set on making a change,but you have not quite narrowed down what that change will be. Sit down and work on some ideas this week. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) The only way you will know if your ideas have merit is to stick your neck out and take a chance once in a while,Scorpio. You just may be surprised at the feedback. Sagittarius (Nov 23-Dec 21) Theres not much else you can do with regard to a tenuous relationship, Sagittarius. So its best if you just cut your losses and move on. Youll make new friends easily. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Although you want to be everything to everyone, theres only so much of you to go around,Capricorn. Dont spread yourself too thinly because it can take quite a while to recuperate after. Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) Aquarius,you are ready to dabble in something that you and you alone enjoy. Figure out what you need to get started and begin building around your specific interest or hobby.

The two met with Editor in Chief Amy Astley for less than five minutes Wednesday, when they delivered a petition bearing more than 28,000 signature. Astley did not talk to Emma Stydahar,17, or Carina Cruz,16,about their request for Teen Vogue to declare in its pages that it doesnt digitally manipulate images. Instead, the girls were given copies of Teen Vogue and told to use them to learn more about the magazine. It was kind of shocking how rude they were to us,Carina said in a statement released by their all-girl activist group. Girl crusaders get cold shoulder from Teen Vogue

C M Y K SAN DIEGO (AP) Lola De La Cruz cried when she met author E L James. The 29-year-old fan had waited since 4 a.m. to accomplish the No. 1 thing on her Comic-Con to-do list meet the writer of Fifty Shades of Grey and 12 hours later,she got her chance. The relationship thats in the book is something that Ive always wanted and havent gotten in previous relationships,so it kind of gave me that hope that theres something still out there,she said as she wiped away tears after meeting James Thursday. James can relate. The 49year-old mother of two was a fan herself,moved to start writing after reading Stephenie Meyers Twilightseries. I dont think Ive ever been swept up in something like I was swept up with that,James said Thursday before her Comic-Con appearance in San Diego. I read them and reread them and reread them,and then I sat down and wrote a novel. That book hasnt been published yet but she followed by posting new pieces online. Those stories found an instant audience and eventually became Fifty Shades of Grey. Now,shes the bestselling author of her own literary phenomenon a romantic trilogy that commanded a seven-figure publishing price,has been translated into 42 languages,is dissected by book clubs and talkshow hosts and set to be made into a movie. Its just crazy,James said. This whole thing has just been mindboggling,how its happened and how its exploded,and so quickly. The Fifty Shadesbooks, which follow the relationship between college student Anastasia Steele and billionaire-bachelor-with-a-tastefor-bondage Christian Grey, were published in April by a division of Random House, Inc. and have already sold more than 16 million copies. ByLYNN ELBER AP Television WriterLOS ANGELES American Idolis on the brink of an adolescent identity crisis. Judge Steven Tyler is leaving and taking his naughty rock star vibe with him,fellow judge Jennifer Lopez is also leaving,and ratings for the Fox show have declined as TVs talent show field gets more competitive. When American Idol returns for its 12th season next January,it will have to be a reengineered version of the once-powerhouse series that turned hopefuls such as Jennifer Hudson into stars and gave network rivals fits. One big step would be a clean sweep of the judging panel. Aerosmith frontman T yler got the ball rolling with his announcement Thursday that he was putting rock nroll ahead of the show that he said had been over-the-top fun. I strayed from my first love,Aerosmith,and Im back but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I got two fists in the air and Im kicking the door open with my band,Tyler said in a statement. Aerosmith is on a nationwide tour with Tyler and has an album due out in the fall. On Friday,Lopez announced that she was also leaving the show. That means the shows judging panel is down to one,Randy Jackson,and there are reports that he may take a different role on the program moving forward. F oxs American Idolhas been TVs most popular program for nearly a decade. But it slumped severely in the ratings last season,and producers are looking for a way to shake things up. Jackson and his dawg! exclamations have been a stalwart part of Idol.But the shows multi-year contracts,such as the one Jackson signed,typically include an escape clause that the network can choose to exercise or not. A call to Jacksons representative was not returned W ednesday. Fox declined to make an executive available to discuss the show and its judges,but one expressed measured regret over Tylers decision in a statement. We are very sad that Steven has chosen to focus more on his music,but we always knew when we hired a rock nroll legend,he would go back to his music, said Mike Darnell,the networks president of alternative entertainment. Speculation about potential new panelists has focused on Mariah Carey, with former Idolrunner-up Adam Lambert getting a shout-out from his fans. Much is at stake for the show and for its judges: Ryan Seacrest,the other original cast member,will provide a stable center. He signed a two-year contract with American Idolproducers this spring. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, July 15, 2012Page 3B church page; 5.542"; 7.1"; Black; church page dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 8 8 DR.

Idol at crossroads after judges exit CROSSWORDSOLUTION SAN DIEGO (AP) Back in the day,Tim B urton remembers critics finding his take on Batman rather gloomy. Burtons Dark Knight looked as though he was h aving fun in the sun compared to where the current Batman series has taken the c omic-book vigilante on the big-screen. I recall at the time,peop le worried about our version being too dark, B urton said of his 1989 Batmanand the 1992 sequel Batman Returns. Its like,well,it looks like a lighthearted romp in comp arison. Batman on Ice. Opening next week,The Dark Knight Riseswraps up director Christopher Nolans trilogy that l aunched with 2005s Batman Beginsand cont inued with 2008s The Dark Knight. Nolan elevated the superh ero genre to grand proportions,with Christian Bales B atman becoming a haunted wreck and a hunted fugitive unjustly condemned by t he city which he gave his all to protect. Burtons Batman,played by Michael Keaton,was a dark soul,too,but the films h ad a levity and a campier quality that has diminished as todays stream of superhero flicks take their idols and action more seriously. The great thing about what comics have done is t hat you can take something and look at it in different w ays,Burton said in an interview at the Comic-Con fan convention,where he showed off footage of his animated comedy Frankenweenie,due out Oct. 7. Its like a folk tale or fairy tale. You can kind of revisit things and show t hings in a different way. Burton,whose biggest commercial success began a decade after his Batman movies with such blockbusters as Charlie and the Chocolate Factoryand Alice in Wonderland,is revisiting one of his own early stories with Frankenweenie. The tale of a boy who resurrects his dead dog, Frankenstein-style,started at a live-action short film Burton directed in 1984. He has expanded on the story to create a feature-length black-and-white update using stop-motion animation,in which puppets are moved and photographed meticulously one frame at a time. I felt quite grateful that I got to do the original in live action,because I was, A.,a bad animator,and B., not very communicative,so it really forced me to talk, said Burton,whose Frankenweenievoice cast includes past collaborators such as Winona Ryder, Martin Landau,Catherine OHara and Martin Short. If Id done stop-motion at the time,which I dont think would have happened, I probably wouldnt have been able to move into liveaction like I did. So all these years later, to come back and to do it in I think its more pure form, stop-motion,exploring other kids,other monsters, weird teachers,things related to the story that were kind of rattling around, made it feel like it was a new thing. I didnt feel like I was Burton recalls his Batman as lighter Dark Knight Associated PressLONDON The London Olympics are drawing near and British headlines are full of complaints about the weather,commercialization, chaos on the roads and the subway. Is it any wonder that the story of two athletes competing at a simpler games is capturing the public imagination? This summer brings the blazing return of Chariots of Fire,the reality-based story of two British sprinters going for gold in the 1924 P aris Games. Harold Abrahams was an English Jew who overcame the ingrained anti-Semitism of the British establishment, while Eric Liddell was a committed Scottish Christian forced to choose between his faith and his ambition when his race was on a Sunday. The story of their struggle against the obstacles,and each other,was first told in a 1981 film that struck a chord around the world,becoming a surprise box office hit and winning four Academy Awards,including best picture. It is being re-released in British movie theaters for a new generation. A stage adaptation has also opened in Londons West End to rave reviews. Ben Cross,who played Abrahams,thinks the movies appeal lies in its depiction of the pureness, the purity,the innocenceof Olympic competition. We have security worries today,and its turned into somewhat of a business enterprise,he said. (But) at its core there is this sort of purity of endeavor.The film shows there can be a kind of dignity in losing. Not too much losing, though. Without spoiling the ending,its fair to say the movie,and Mike Bartletts stage adaptation,are stirring sagas. Its a simple story about simple ideals,simple morals. Stand up for who you are. Stand up for your rights,the films director, Hugh Hudson,said at a very British gala premiere. Chariots of Fire lets Brits relive Olympic ideal Fifty Shades author James delights fans at Comic-Con

C M Y K Recently the Sun N Lake Preserve went through some changes. A pine thinning project took place on the northern portion of the property. For years,many p eople have viewed cutting down any tree as a destruct ive or harmful act. In reality,if done properly and for the right reasons,cutting d own a few trees can actually benefit the forest. Portions of the Preserve had formed canopies of pine trees so thick that it created a dome over the forest floor allowing little or no sunlight t o penetrate. In many areas, the pines had become impene trable causing wildlife such as white-tailed deer difficulty navigating their way t hrough the trees. And even if they could get around the t hick stand of pines,there was no vegetation to feed on because no sunlight had r eached the forest floor to allow plant growth. The pines that were s pringing up in the dense forest were thin and spindly a nd basically unhealthy due to lack of nutrients,space and water. Since the canopy has been opened up by the selective t hinning project,the abundance of wildlife to the area has increased. The trees that remain will begin to grow wider and taller. Sunlight,once again,can reach the forest floor stimul ating herbaceous plant growth that many wildlife s pecies prefer. Rainfall will reach the ground,giving the pine roots and ground cover much needed moisture. Because the density of trees i s reduced,pine beetles are less of a threat. Selectively thinning these pines will allow them to extend their branches and roots. By thinning the forest,the ground is open to new pine growth. Now that the saplings have some room to grow,they should become beautiful,tall and healthy trees. They will have the necessary space,nutrients, sunshine and water to reach their full potential. Wildfire is much less of a threat than it was before the thinning process. With the rainy season upon us,this is a very important issue. Lightning strikes were once natures way of naturally thinning pine forests. Historically,a fiery bolt w ould strike a tree,catch fire and burn through the pine flatwoods for miles and miles until the flames reached a natural fire break. But,as populations have increased it is no longer practical to allow fires to burn unchecked for safety and economical reasons. Adding to the safety issues from wildfires,a prescribed burn will take place this winter to eradicate downed fuels and further increase the health of the forest. Pine forests are fire dependent,which means that they actually need fire to survive and thrive. Older pine trees have a very thick bark that protects them from the flames and a deep taproot,which ensures their hardiness after the fire. Prescribed burning will continue the thinning process, killing the weaker trees and furthering herbaceous growth from the nutrient rich soil. Fire also eradicates hardwoods that are trying to take o ver the pine forests. This is called succession. While hardwoods such as oaks, maples and hickories are beautiful,they have their place and that isnt the pine flatwoods. If grown unchecked,these huge shade producing trees will eventually shade out and kill the pines that naturally grow in these areas. Why is this a problem? Some of the plants that thrive in the pine flatwoods include wiregrass,gallberry, palmetto,fetterbush, American beautyberry,wax myrtle and blueberry. Many animals depend on these and other vegetation to survive in this plant community. Pine flatwoods are an essential habitat for many species of wildlife. These creatures not only find forage here,but depend on the shrubs and grasses for nesting purposes. They also seek refuge for predators in the understory. Pine flatwoods are the most abundant plant community in Florida. These pine forests have always been and continue to be valuable to Floridas landscape. Not only do they provide homes and forage to countless species of wildlife,but they also provide necessary products to humans. Many threatened and endangered species are found in the pine flatwoods. The days of allowing nature to take its course are over in many instances. With mankind moving in to the natural areas,the landscapes have changed drastically. It has become necessary for land managers to give mother earth a helping hand by doing what nature has been prevented from doing on its own. Selective thinning and prescribed burning are two tools that are necessary to keep our natural areas pristine and beautiful.

Sam Capra experienced betrayal and loss in Jeff Abbotts Adrenaline.In Abbotts new thriller,The L ast Minute,Capras wife is in a coma and he is desperate to find his infant son. An ex-CIA agent,Capra has the skills and resources for the search. The kidnappers are part of a cartel called the Novem S oles (Nine Suns),and they have their hands in law enforcement and government a gencies around the world. They even have allies in the C IA. Capra is also confronted with a moral dilemma:The ransom demand isnt for money,but for the execution o f an innocent person. Deliver proof of this mans death and Capra can have his son back. He cannot count on his former allies for assistance,and his new boss is in hiding with a price on her head. It doesnt matter why the Novem Soles want this man dead.

The next Capra novel cannot come f ast enough. Discretion (Touchstone),by Allison Leotta Sex and politics collide in Discretion,an intriguing new thriller from Allison Leotta. A high-priced escort arrives at the U.S. Capitol for a rendezvous with one of her regular clients,a longterm Congressman. A short time later,she falls to her death from the balcony. Anna Curtis works for the U.S. Attorneys office and Jack Bailey,the chief homicide prosecutor,is her boyfriend,though their colleagues are kept in the dark about their relationship. Their joint investigation quickly hits a wall.

Besides the realistic feel of the courtroom machinations,Leotta also takes readers on a journey inside the elite of Washington and the world of escort services. How can such an obvious prostitution enterprise operate immune from the law? Curtis and Bailey find their relationship tested as people in power will use everything and everyone at their disposal to keep their private lives a secret.

The only thing that came close was President John F. Kennedys assassination and its aftermath in 1963,but that was only for the people a ged 55 and over who experienced those events as they happened instead of replayed as an historical artifact. Sony Electronics and the Nielsen television research c ompany collaborated on the survey. They ranked TV m oments for their impact not just by asking people if they remembered watching them, b ut if they recalled where they watched it,who they w ere with and whether they talked to other people about what they had seen. By that measure,the Sept. 11 tragedy was nearly twice a s impactful as the secondranked moment,which was t he coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Minutes after the first airplane struck N ew YorksWorld Trade Center on a late summer m orning,television networks began covering the events continuously and stayed with t hem for days. The other biggest TV events,in order,were the 1 995 verdict in O.J. Simpsons murder trial,the C hallenger space shuttle explosion in 1986 and the death of Osama bin Laden last year,the survey found. Sony was interested in the s tudy for clues on consumer interests and behaviors and found that television is really the grandmother of all the social devices,said Brian Siegel,vice president of tele vision business for the company. Going into the study, Siegel said he had anticipated that entertainment events like the final episode of MA-S-H(ranked No. 42),the Beatlesappearance on The Ed Sullivan Show(No. 43) and the Who shot J.R.? episode of Dallas(No. 44) w ould rank higher. Instead, television coverage of news e vents made the biggest difference in viewerslives. The Super Bowl is annually the most-watched TV event,with this years game between the New York Giants and New England Patriots setting a record with 111 million viewers. The memories dont seem to linger,however:the topranked Super Bowl Sunday event in Sonys study came in 2004 and had nothing to do with football. It was Janet Jacksons wardrobe malfunction (No. 26). Men and women agreed on the three most impactful television events Sept. 11, Katrina and Simpson. After that,some of the interests diverged. For example,women ranked the 1997 funeral of Princess Diana as the fourth most memorable event, while men put that at No. 23. Women ranked last years death of Whitney Houston at No. 5,with men judging it No. 21. Similarly,the 2003 bombing of Baghdad at the start of the Iraq War was seen as the No. 14 most impactful moment by men,and No. 37 among women. Men were also far more struck by boxer Mike Tyson biting off a piece of Evander Holyfields ear. The passage of time has also diluted some moments once thought as unforgettable,simply because succeeding generations have no personal memory of them. Mans first moon landing in 1969 ranked No. 21. Age also made a big difference in the survey. JFKs assassination was the second-most impactful TV event among people 55 and over,while for those between 18 and 34,it was the death of Osama bin Laden. Y oung people also ranked Barack Obamas Election Night speech in 2008 at No. 3,while that didnt move older viewers quite as much (No. 24). Simply because of their age,events like the JFK assassination,President Nixons resignation and the moon landing didnt register at all among viewers 18 to 34. The oldest event to appear in their rankings was the 1980 shooting of John Lennon. The study was based on an online questionnaire of 1,077 adults selected as a scientific sample from among Nielsens panel of people measured for television ratings. It was conducted Feb. 15-17 this year. Study: Sept. 11 most memorable TV moment MCT Joan Lasley, in hat, cries as she watches a TV monitor in Philadelphia, Pa., that is replaying the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001.

Boeing,one of the worlds largest makers of commercial jetliners,forecasts about 460,000 new pilots will be needed worldwide between now and 2031 as global economies expand and airlines take deliveries of tens of thousands of new commercial jetliners. The forecast includes 69,000 new pilots in the North America, mostly in the U.S. The greatest growth will be in the Asia-Pacific region,where an estimated 185,600 new pilots will be needed. Likewise,Boeing predicts 601,000 new aircraft maintenance technicians will be needed over the same period, with greatest demand 243,500 technicians in the Asia-Pacific region. An estimated 92,500 new technicians will North America. The rising global demand for airline pilots has raised concern among industry and government officials that there will be a global and a domestic pilot shortage. In many regions of the world,a pilot shortage is already here,the Boeing forecast said. Asia Pacific in particular is experiencing delays and operational interruptions due to pilot scheduling constraints. Thats particularly true in China and India,industry officials said. Airlines based in Asia and the Middle East have been holding pilot job fairs in the U.S. and thouMCT Industry forecasts say half a million new airline pilots will be needed over the next 20 years, raising questions about how well trained those new pilots will be.

Fewer still have bothered to appoint someone t o make financial and health care d ecisions on their behalf should they become incapacit ated. And now we can add another necessary,but p robably overlooked legal document:a social media will. Thats right in this age of email,password-protecte d accounts and social media sites like Facebook a nd LinkedIn,the U.S. Government,of all sources, recently pointed out why i ts important for people to leave instructions for how t hey want their online identities handled after death. The governments blog, w ww.usa.gov,suggests appointing a trusted relative or friend to act as your online executor,taking responsibility to close your e mail accounts,social media profiles and blogs after you die. This could easily be an addendum to your will assuming you h ave one. Suggest actions that will help you write your social media include: Review the privacy policies and the terms and conditions of each website where you have a presence. State how you would like your profiles to be handled. You may want to completely cancel your profile or keep it up for friends and family to visit and share their thoughts. Some sites allow your heirs to create a memorial profile where others can still see your profile but cant post anything new. Give your social media e xecutor a list of all websites where you have a prof ile,along with your usernames and passwords. Stipulate in your will that the online executor should be given a copy of your death certificate. He or she may need this as proof in order for websites to take any actions on your behalf. Id take it one step further and suggest that you also leave instructions for accessing your passwordprotected devises and accounts including computers,cellphones,and online banking accounts.

In case youve been procrastinating a bout completing a will and other such documents,heres a good motivator: Although wills arent mandatory,if you d ont have one when you die,the state will decide how your estate is settled. S imilarly,if you havent filed financial and healthcare durable powers of attorney,someone else not necessarily the person you wish will make financial and healthcare decisions on your behalf s hould an accident or illness render you unable. Here are a few things that could go wrong if you dont make your wishes known: Court-supervised probate could hold up your estate and result in costly fees. Because the state usually awards assets to surviving spouses,children and other relatives,your friends and favored charitable institutions could be left out. With no will,the state decides guardianship for minor children whose parents have died. Your preferences for things like life-support procedures and burial instructions may not be followed exactly. K ey documents that can prevent these kinds of scenarios include a will, revocable living trust,financial and health care powers of attorney and a living will.

We have airlines around the world as they buy our airplanes and come to us on the training side of the house,saying Were struggling to fill (pilot) seats. Can you help us? said Carl Davis,Boeings chief of pilot services. Davis presented his companys forecast Thursday at a conference in Washington on pilot training hosted by the Air Line Pilots Association,the worlds largest pilot union. U.S. industry and government officials are also concerned that the rising global demand for pilots, combined with an anticipated wave in pilot retirements and tougher qualification standards for new pilots that kick in next year,will create a domestic shortage as well. Im concerned because it has safety implications, John Allen,the Federal Aviation Administrations director of flight services, told The Associated Press. Allen said he wants to spur a discussion among industry,labor unions and academia about a potential shortage that will really look at this and address it, not to just sweep it under the rug ... Is this a problem? And,if it is a problem,how bad is it? He said he is fearful that if there is a shortage,airlines will hire pilots who are technically qualified b ut dont have the right stuff. If the industry is stretched pretty thin ... that can result in someone getting into the system that maybe isnt really the right person to be a pilot. Not everybody is supposed to be a pilot,Allen said. Jean Medina,a spokeswoman for Airlines for America,responding to Allens comments,said: Safety is always our top priority and our airlines hire pilots that meet the rigorous standards set by t he FAA.The International Air Transport Association didnt respond toa request for comment. Lee Moak,president of the pilots union,said he doubts a pilot shortage will be felt in the U.S. for about three to five years. If U.S. airlines start hiring pilots in large numbers,he said, pilots now flying for foreign carriers will likely return home. There are currently about 90,000 airline pilots in the U.S. and Canada. Globally is another matter,Moak said. Industry and government officials anticipate a wave of pilot retirements at U.S. airlines beginning this year. Five years ago,the FAA raised the mandatory retirement age for pilots from 60 to 65. The fifth anniversary of that decision is Dec. 13. Pilots who were age 60 on that date five years ago are reaching the age where they have to retire.

Prepare a will covering your digital assets Shortage of pilots could be a problem By PALLAVI GOGOI AP Business Writer NEW YORK JPMorgan Chase said Friday that a bad trade had cost t he bank $5.8 billion this year, almost triple its original estimate, and raised the prospect that traders had improperly tried to conceal the blunder. This has shaken our company to the core,CEO Jamie Dimon said. The bank said managers tied to the bad trade had been dismissed without severance pay and that it planned to revoke two yearsworth of pay from each of those executives. JPMorgan said it had lost $4.4 billion because of the trade from April through June,and its chief financial officer said the bank had lost an additional $1.4 billion in the first three months of the year. Dimons original estimate of the loss from the bad trade,disclosed in a surprise conference call with Wall Street analysts in May,was $2 billion. On Friday,Dimon said he believed the loss was mostly contained. In the worst case,if financial markets deterioriate severely, the bank could lose an additional $1.7 billion,he said. That would bring the total loss to $7.5 billion. Investors appeared relieved that the mess was mostly behind the bank. They sent JPMorgans stock price up $1.50,or more than 4 percent,to $35.54. That made it the best-performing stock in the Dow Jones industrial average. The bank said an internal investigation,including emails and voice messages,had called into question the values that traders placed on certain bets,and that the traders may have been seeking to mask losses. A spokesman for the Securities and Exchange Commission declined comment. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Dimon told Congress last month that the trade was meant to hedge risk at the company and protect it in case things got really badin the global economy. Instead,the trade has backfired and damaged the banks reputation. Speaking broadly about the trading loss on Friday,Dimon told analysts:We dont take it lightly.He added:Were not making light of this error,but we do think its an isolated event. The bank said that it was reducing its net income for the first quarter by $459 million because it had discovered information that raises questions about the integrityof values placed on certain trades. Dimon said the bank had closed the trading division responsible for the bad trade and moved the remainder of the trading position under its investment banking division. Overall,JPMorgan said it earned $5 billion,or $1.21 per share,for the second quarter,which covers April through June and includes the banks disclosure of the trading loss on May 10. Analysts surveyed by FactSet,a provider of financial data,had expected JPMorgan to earn 76 cents per share. Investors were also cheered to hear that the bank might resume its plan to buy back its own stock. Dimon said the bank was in discussions with the Federal Reserve and would submit a plan in hopes of buying back stock starting late this year. The big gain on Friday still left the banks stock about $5 shy of its closing price of $40.74 on May 10, the day Dimon surprised reporters and stock analysts by holding a conference call to disclose the loss. The company suspended an earlier plan to buy back $15 billion of its stock after reporting the trading loss. Just three months ago,JPMorgan was viewed as the top American bank,guided by Dimons steady hand. Since the disclosure of the trading loss,however,that reputation has been eroded. Dimon,who originally dismissed concerns about the banks trading as a tempest in a teapot,appeared before Congress twice to apologize and explain himself,and several government agencies have launched investigations. Under close questioning from lawmakers in June about his own role in setting up the investment division responsible for the mess, Dimon declared:We made a mistake. Im absolutely responsible. The buck stops with me. The trading loss has raised concerns that the biggest banks still pose risks to the U.S. financial system,less than four years after the financial crisis erupted in the fall of 2008. JPMorgan stock has lost about 15 percent of its market value since the loss came to light. JPMorgan says bad trade has ballooned to $5.8 billion MCT This has shaken our company to the core, CEO Jamie Dimon said of the bad trade that has cost the bank $5.8 billion. NEW YORK (AP) With new public stock offerings for guitar maker Fender and travel booking website Kayak on deck next week,there are signs demand is starting to grow for IPOs after a fiveweek freeze triggered by a steep decline in financial markets and exacerbated by Facebooks rocky May 18 debut. Five companies are scheduled to go public next week alone,including Fender, Kayak and Palo Alto Networks,a maker of computer network security products. After Facebook,just four deals made it to market by the end of June,marking the longest stretch without an initial public offering of stock since the 2008 financial crisis. The resurgence of activity is a welcome indication that dealmakers are regaining confidence about raising money through IPOs. But the situation is far from rosy. There are 68 companies expected to raise $14.4 billion through IPOs later this year,according to research firm Dealogic,Last year at this time there were almost double that amount of companies 135,looking to raise $23.6 billion. If the market stays healthy the overall market I think we will see a lot of IPO activity in the second half,said Nick Einhorn,an analyst with Renaissance Capital. But a plunge in stock markets could make it difficult for companies to raise money by selling shares. That happened in the summer and fall of 2011.

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Neither team was going to go down without a fight, as was evidenced by the remarkable defensive efforts from either side of the field Thursday night. But in the end of the crosscounty contest for the Dixie AAAState Tournament championship, Sebring outlasted the comeback kids f rom Lake Placid, 4-1, to gain entry into the World Series two weeks from now in Bartow. Leading these efforts from the mound was Royston Daley for Lake Placid and Desmond Gaines for Sebring. In the second inning there was a slight change of events, as Hunter Vanderpool made it to first before the throw despite the signature stretching skills from Lake Placid first baseman Joey Warner. Vanderpool later stole second on a passed ball before being brought in by an RBI single to right from Drew Smith. This put the score at 1-0 in Sebrings favor as the Dragons took their second atbat, however their hits would not find any gaps as they attempted to even the board. Sebring would add two more runs in the top of the third, with LJ Daniels and Drew Morris finding their way on the bases with a single and a fielders choice. Daniels would steal home on a passed ball before Robert Spoones blooper found the slightest gap between third and short just beyond the outstretched glove of the third baseman to score Morris to see the lead now at 3-0. Cody Carpenter took the mound for Lake Placid in the top of the fourth, despite some previous injuries, and battled through long enough to keep Sebring at bay. Later in the same inning, Lake Placid threatened the Streakslead as Shamar Mitchell reached on a single, beating out the throw from the middle infield. Mitchell managed to make it to second base safely on a steal, and soon found himself on third after an overthrow. He was then brought in by Wyatt Moore, who would not make it safely to first himself but would successfully put the Dragons on the board at 3-1. Sebring earned back an insurance run in the top of the fifth, with Daniels smacking a hit down the left field SPORTS D SECTION Inside This Section Appel declines . . .3D Marlins, Rays ink picks . . .3D Brees signs . . .5D News-Sun Sunday, July 15, 2012 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE FOX 13s Brian Gray films as he interviews Drew Reeves Thursday at Charles R.

Prime time players Two more Dixie tournaments, two more State Champs News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Head coach Caesar Martinez gets doused after his squad clinched the Dixie Ozone State Championship with a 2-1 win over West Volusia Thursday. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It wasnt the hitting parade the team had gotten used to, but Sebrings Ozone All-Stars fought through a nerve-wracking pitchers duel to win the Florida Dixie State Championship with a 2-1 win over West Volusia Thursday. With 12 home runs over their first four games, the Sebring sluggers had made things look easy, averaging 14 runs per game over that span. The lopsided wins also made things easier on their pitching staff, which would prove invaluable this day as staff ace Everett Hurst locked horns with West Volusias Bryce Jones. Hurst won the first-inning battle, striking out two in a one-two-three top half, while Hunter Martinez greeted Jones with a lead-off double in the bottom of the frame. Trent Lewis grounded to first to move Martinez to third and Hurst plated him with a ground-out to second for a 1-0 lead. But the second inning, which proved a trouble spot for Hurst in his Wednesday outing, again saw a loss of command. Austin Cliffi singled to left and advanced to second on a wild pitch before Dylan Verdi drew a walk. Hurst snared a comebacker and alertly threw to third for a force, but Kody Stephenson followed with a single up the middle to load the bases. Ben Hovis then worked the count for a walk, forcing in Verdi, and the game was tied. Things stayed that way as both hurlers roared through the next few innings. Jones set the side down in order in the bottom of the second and Hurst struck out the side in order in the top of the third. Jones also struck out the side in his half of the third, though it was momentari ly interrupted when birthday boy Zach Gopher was hit by a pitch. Hurst added two more strikeouts in a three up, three down top of the fourth, and Jones struck out the first two batters in the bottom of the inning. By now, the frustration for both offenses was building and sometimes bubbling to the surface. He had a real good curve, because it didnt look like a curve, Hurst said of his mound foe. It didnt have the bend in it. It would start out straight and look like a fastball, but then it would either break across or down and away. He was real tough. But with two out in the fourth, Sebring began its rally. Lewis was hit by a pitch and Hurst singled up the middle. Dayvon Terry then legged out a hit on the infield to load Sebring squeaks to Ozone title Sebring2W Volusia1 See OZONE, Page 5D Sebring AAAs snare State title See AAA, Page 4D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe fifth event of the Sertoma Junior Tour season teed off Thursday, taking on the Golf Hammock course and seeing a slew of close contests. The narrow gaps started in the Boys 6-8 age group, with Parker Griffins 34 holding up just ahead of the 35 brought in by Jaxon Davis. Griffin Hall was just another three shots back at 38 for third. Beckham Donavon had a somewhat more comfortable win in the Boys 9-10, carding a 49 that was six shots up on Billy Carol who, in turn, was five ahead of Zach Doorlag in third.

C M Y K By EDDIE PELLS Associated PressAt the next Olympics, the team from the USAwill wear uniforms made in the USA. Designer Ralph Lauren announced Friday that the uniforms it provides the U.S. Olympic team at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, will, in fact, be made in the United States. The U.S. uniforms for the London Games were made in China, which sparked congressional criticism of the U.S. Olympic Committee. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the USOC should be ashamed of themselves and Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., called the decision not just outrageous, its just plain dumb. It is selfdefeating. Ralph Lauren initially declined comment on the criticism, but 24 hours later announced clothes for future Olympics would be made in the United States. Ralph Lauren has an apparel contract with the USOC through 2020. Ralph Lauren promises to lead the conversation within our industry and our government to address the issue to increase manufacturing in the United States, the company said in a statement. Its too late to change anything for the 530 American athletes in time for the London Games, which start July 27. The uniforms for Opening Ceremony will remain as planned blue blazer, cream-colored pants for men and skirts for women and a blue beret with red and white stripes. The USOC initially defended the choice of Ralph Lauren, saying it was grateful for the support from an iconic American company. On Friday, USOC CEO Scott Blackmun said the federation takes the complaints seriously. We are absolutely committed ... to working with our sponsors to ensure that the concerns voiced are addressed, Blackmun said. In the meantime, we ask for the American peoples support. The members of Team USAhave dedicated the ir entire lives to training for this one moment. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, DN.Y., who along with Israel wrote a letter to the USOC chairman Larry Probst complaining about the situation, released a statement after hearing Fridays news. When Americas best athletes are representing our country on the world stage, we should be representing the best of American-made goods, she wrote. The pride of our Olympic athletics goes hand in hand with the pride of American innovation and manufacturing. While I am greatly disappointed our athletes will not be dressed head to toe in Made in the USAthis year, I thank the USOC and Ralph Lauren for hearing our voices and working to correct this mistake going forward. I look forward to cheering on Team USA. Associated PressThe Miami Marlins agreed to a contract with first-round draft pick Andrew Heaney, giving the Oklahoma State left-hander a $2.6 million signing bonus. The deal Friday with the No. 9 overall selection was for $200,000 less than his slotted value under baseballs new labor contract. Heaney was selected Big 12 Conference pitcher of the year. He was 8-2 with a 1.60 ERAin 15 starts, and led the NCAAwith 140 strikeouts in 118 1-3 innings. Third baseman Richie Shaffer, taken by the Tampa Bay Rays with the 25th pick on the first round of last months amateur draft, agreed to a contract for a signing bonus of $1.71 million. The deal Friday with the 21-year-old was just below the slot value of $1,725,000 assigned under baseballs new labor contract. He batted .336 this year at Clemson with 10 homers, 46 RBIs, 63 walks, a .573 slugging average and a .480 on-base percentage. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, July 15, 2012Page 3D HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 0 0 1 1 7 7 LAKE DENTON CAMP; 3.639"; 5"; Black; july ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 0 0 5 5 3 3 By HOWARD ULMAN Associated PressLOUDON, N.H. Kevin Harvick does a better job driving around the track than to the delivery room. And now that his son is nearly a week old, he can relax more when he competes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race on Sunday at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The most relaxed that Ive been able to be in weeks, Harvick said Friday. He got his wife DeLana to the hospital in North Carolina with little time to spare last Sunday when she gave birth to Keelan. She did a great job and had a baby within about two hours, Harvick said. Dad waited a little long to get her to the hospital. But he couldnt use his competitive driving skills because DeLana was in pain. We didnt make any real fast corners, he said. We could go straight and fast. I had been to the doctors office several times so I knew where every bump was. So I didnt get yelled at on the drive over and that was my goal. Harvick had flown last Saturday morning from Daytona, where he was to compete that night at the International Speedway. Seeing that the birth was not imminent, he returned about 3 p.m. to Daytona, where he was involved in a late accident and finished 23rd. Then he flew back home. Had Keelan arrived on Saturday, Harvick said he would have skipped the race. At sixth place in the standings, hes in good position to qualify for one of the 12 spots in the Chase with 10 races left before that begins. I was actually home and prepared not to come back if that situation had come to that point, Harvick said. If things would have progressed in the direction that they did Sunday morning, I would have just stayed there. He had Kenny Wallace o n standby to replace him, but it wasnt necessary. Now he can approach his first race as a father without the uncertainty of not knowing how the birth would go. Theres just that anxiety. As you get closer you just want to know, is everybody going to be good?Harvick said. Its definitely a huge sense of relief to be able to come to the track and everybody is smiling and healthy. That makes me feel a lot better. Harvick to race for first time as father MCTphoto Kevin Harvick will hit the New Hampshire Motor Speedway as a proud new papa. By RONALD BLUM Associated PressNEWYORK The first signing period under baseballs new draft restrictions ended with touted pitcher Mark Appel spurning Pittsburgh to remain at Stanford and with 10 teams exceeding their bonus pools but none by enough to forfeit future selections. Appel was the only unsigned player among 31 f irst-round picks, turning d own an offer of $3.8 million from the Pirates. Appel was projected by some to be the No. 1 selection last month, but several teams shied away from the right-hander because of the expected demands of his a dviser, Scott Boras. Appel was selected eighth. That slot was assigned $2.9 million from the drafting teams bonus pool in baseballs new labor contract, which imposes penalties on clubs that exceed their threshold the total of the slots for a teams selections in the first 10 rounds. The first pick was slotted for $7.2 million and Houston chose shortstop Carlos Correa, who agreed t o $4.8 million. Pittsburgh was prepared t o go as much as 5 percent above its threshold and i ncur the first level of penalty, a 75 percent tax on the o verage. But the Pirates didnt want to fall into higher levels, which include the loss of future draft picks. After much thought, prayer and analysis of both opportunities, I came to the conclusion the best decision is to remain at Stanford continuing my studies, finishing my degree and doing all I can to assist the Cardinal baseball team in our goal to win a national championship, Appel said in a statement. I greatly valued the prospect of a professional opportunity, and I will pursue a professional baseball career after getting my Stanford degree. Every team that went over stayed within 5 percent of its threshold, according to calculations by Major League Baseball: Boston, the Chicago Cubs, Houston, Kansas City, the Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Washington. We have shattered the productivity of many teams by putting an artificial cap on their decision-making, Boras said. Its horrible for baseball and illustrates a real failure in the system. Ateam going over by more than 5 percent but less than 10 percent would face a 100 percent tax on the overage and the loss of their next first-round draft pick. Penalties escalate to a 100 percent tax and the loss of a teams next firstand second-round picks (10-15 percent over) and a 100 percent tax and the loss of a teams next two first-round selections (in excess of 15 percent). Five first-round picks reached agreements on the final day: LSU right-hander Kevin Gausman with Baltimore ($4.32 million for the fourth pick), Oklahoma State left-hander Andrew Heaney with Miami ($2.6 million for ninth), high school right-hander Lucas Giolito with Washington ($2,925,000 for 16th), Clemson third baseman Richie Shaffer, with Tampa Bay ($1.71 million for 25th) and high school right-hander Ty Hensley with the Yankees ($1.2 million for 30th). Only six first-round picks signed for more than slot: Gausman, Giolito and Shaffer, along with Chicago Cubs outfielder Albert Almora ($3.9 million for sixth), Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager ($2.35 million for 18th) and Boston shortstop Deven Marrero ($2.05 million for 24th). Ten first-round selections signed exactly at slot and 14 signed below. Just nine players among the 338 taken in the first 10 rounds failed to sign. Among them was Connecticut second baseman L.J. Mazzilli, the son of former major league player and manager Lee Mazzilli. Selected by Minnesota in the ninth round, Mazzilli will return to the Huskies for his senior season. The signing deadline didnt apply to Florida outfielder Preston Tucker because he is a college senior, and Houston has until a week before next years draft to sign the seventh-round pick. Because Appel failed to sign, Pittsburgh will get an extra pick in the first round next year, the ninth selection overall. The Mets will get an extra selection after the 11th pick of the second round for not signing high school righty Teddy Stankiewicz and Oakland will get an additional pick after the third round for failing to sign high school lefty Kyle Twomey. Appel, who turns 21 on Sunday, also failed to sign in 2009, when Detroit selected him in the 15th round with the 450th pick after his final season with Monte Vista High in San Ramon, Calif. Appel will go back into next years draft. Under the labor deal, agreed to in November, the deadline for draft picks to sign was 5 p.m. Friday, a month earlier than he rules in the previous collective bargaining agreement. The change led to fewer picks waiting until the final hours to sign. Trying to end a record streak of 19 consecutive losing seasons, the resurgent Pirates are tied with the Cincinnati Reds for the NL Central lead. We drafted Mark Appel to sign Mark Appel. We were excited about the opportunity to add him to a plethora of quality, young arms, Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said during a telephone conference call. It didnt happen. So now we turn the corner. This, too, shall pass. We move forward. Along with the extra pick next year, the Pirates also could gain an extra selection from baseballs first competitive balance draft, which will be held Wednesday in Secaucus, N.J. We may be looking at three of the top 45 picks in the country, Huntington said. Some have argued next years draft class is going to be better than this years draft class. Boras also represented prior first-round picks Pedro Alvarez and Gerrit Cole in their negotiations with the Pirates. Selecting Mark was a calculated risk, as we knew he would be a difficult sign, Huntington said. As an organization, we need to continue to take these types of calculated risks. While we wouldve preferred to add Mark to the group of talented prospects in our system, we wish Mark, and his family, nothing but success in the future.

Morriss rip up the middle would score Daniels, now seeing 4-1 on the scoreboard still in Sebrings favor. In the top of the sixth, Sebring loaded the bases with one out left in the inning. As the ball traveled towards Dragon second baseman Jackson Griffin, he stepped back to read it, slipped onto his knees in his attempt to charge and then fell to his stomach to make a heart-stopping, crowd pleasing catch to put an end to Sebrings offensive threats. Despite the emotional high, Lake Placid would not manage any more runs their last time in the batters box, thus crowning Sebring as the Dixie Youth AAAState Champions. Both teams made some unbelievable plays requiring skill beyond their years diving catches, back hands, and gymnastic-worthy stretches for the out made for some exciting moments. This was a major factor in the limited amount of runs throughout the night. Whatever happens today, just dont give up, said Sebring coach Anthony Gaines in a pep talk to his team Thursday night before game. Those words of encouragement could easily describe the efforts of both teams throughout the week. The Dragons and the Streaks faced much adversity as they made their way through the bracket of the tournament. Lake Placid took a tough first loss early on but proved that they deserved to be in the final two as they eliminated team after team, making their way to the title game. Sebring had a more successful start, being undefeated until losing to Lake Placid 10-5 Wednesday, which pinned them against West Seminole Thursday with the winner taking on Lake Placid yet again in the championship game. And Sebring, down 9-4 in their final at bat against West Seminole in Thursdays semifinal, saw a last-ditch explosion of 11 runs before halting a four-run rally to take a 15-13 win. This made the final faceoff between these county rivals even more exciting. The bats just didnt come alive tonight is all, said Dragon head coach Tracy Carpenter. Its been a fun ride. We hope to do it again next year. Im very proud of these boys. We came here and lost our first game Saturday and they battled back all the way up to this. What else could I ask for? Desmond was big today, coach Gaines said. He pitched three innings the first game and they hit him pret ty good, but thats what he does: he just throws strikes and if they hit them he doesnt get rattled. Then he came over here and hit his spots; Im really proud of him. Im really proud of all the kids today. We couldnt have won this tournament without all twelve of them. They all stepped up. Baseball is about life: When these kids get older, they will make their employers a lot of money because they are hard workers, they are dedicated, loyal, and they never give up. They are going to be great people in our community. Continued from 1D AAA All-Stars now ready for World Series Osha as well, as he was the lone linkster to break 50, with a 49. John David Spiegel was second at 57 and Joseph Flood third at 66. But then things got interesting as the age groups got older. Sam Rogers and Andrew Wally each came in with 84s in the Boys 13-14, forci ng a playoff hole that Rogers was able to take to claim first. Jason Cannon was just three back with an 87 for third, with Jett Dexter another three back for fourth. The Boys 15-16 saw Nic Staffieri win with an 82, keeping just ahead of a three-way tie for second with Rhett Pooley, Easton Davis and Dustin Baber all coming in with 83s. Ben Tubbs was just one more shot further back with an 84. In the Boys 17-18, Jonah Brown took a two-shot win with an 83, while Daniel Miller and Kevin Ladue tied for second with 85s and Branden Fitch and Terrell Williams tied for fourth with dueling 91s. Ashley Engle found the competition within herself as the only participant in the Girls 11-13, but certainly didnt take it easy as she came in with a very strong 73 for the round. And Sarah Liles stayed pretty comfortably ahead of the field in the Girls 14-18, carding a 79 over 18 holes to stay seven ahead of Savana Fisher and eight ahead of Chloe Nelson.

Agrounder off Justin Bickmans bat saw a slow developing force play take a moment too long to get the third out, leaving everyone safe and Lewis in with the go-ahead score. Hurst then got the first two batters in the top of the fifth, on a grounder and strikeout, but Stephenson and Hovis knocked back-toback singles to put the tying run in scoring position. But Hurst recovered to strike out the next batter to end the threat. Sebring looked to add an insurance run when, with two out in the bottom of the fifth, Clint Patrick singled to right and Martinez beat out an infield hit. Aground out, however, ended the at bat and sent it to the sixth with the lil Streaks clinging to the onerun lead and the top of the West Volusia order due up. But here, Hurst was at his best. Seeing the state title just three outs away, he reared back and sent each batter back to the bench with a swinging third strike, giving Sebring the Ozone State Championship and itsbirth in the Dixie World Series as Team Florida. Hurst would total 13 strikeouts in his six innings of work. He was just a horse out there, head coach Caesar Martinez said. And he needed to be because that kid (Jones) was a quality pitcher. It wasnt easy but these kids scratched, clawed and fought all the way and I couldnt be more proud. The team will now get ready and head to Cleveland, MS where they will begin play Saturday, July 28 against Team Louisiana.

Ozone state title goes Sebrings way By BRETTMARTEL Associated PressNEWORLEANS Drew Brees and the Saints reached a deal on par with the quarterbacks record-setting play, giving New Orleansfans some news they can celebrate after an offseason rife with turmoil. The team announced Friday that it had agreed to a fiveyear contract with Brees. Aperson familiar with the deal said its for $100 million, w ith $60 million guaranteed. The deal will also pay the quarterback $40 million the first year, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial details had not been publicly announced. Brees posted a note on his T witter page reading, Deal is Done! Love you, Who Dat Nation. See you soon! He had been tagged as the Saintsexclusive franchise player and could not negotiate with other teams. Had a deal not been reached, the tender for a quarterback was worth $ 16.3 million. Brees would have had to play for that a mount or hold out for a better o ne-year deal, which would h ave left his long-term f uture in New Orleans uncertain. Brees skipped the Saintsoffseason practices while holding out for his new long-term contract, which now gives him the highest average annual pay ($20 million) in NFLhistory. Buffalo defensive end Mario Williams also has a $100 million contract, but for six years. With a contract like this, people can say theyre paying me what you earned or what you deserved. In my mind, I always feel like Ive got to go out every day and earn it and show people why youre at that level, Brees said in an interview Friday night with the Saintsradio network, WWL-AM. I can tell you from the start of this negotiation, I have not thought once about, Hey, I want to be the highest-paid guy or what have you.... It was more about trying to look truly, just objectively, at the numbers the last decade for a top-tier quarterback and where it has been and where it is going and just trying to do what is fair and justified. Now Brees is set to report for the opening of Saints training camp on July 24, a needed dose of good news for a club whose offseason has been plagued by the bounty scandal that resulted in the season-long suspensions of coach Sean Payton and linebacker Jonathan Vilma, among other sanctions. What Drew has accomplished in his time with the Saints, he deserves to be the highest paid player in the league, Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said. We are excited to have this deal done and behind us and look forward to the next five years with Drew as our quarterback. Breesteammates quickly took to Twitter to congratulate him. Safety Malcolm Jenkins wrote Congrats bro ... Youve changed the game on and off the field!!! No one deserves it more than you. T ight end Jimmy Graham tweeted: Congrats (at)drewbrees ... very happy for you, your family and all the Whodat Nation .... lets go get the trophy. Even LSU coach Les Miles chimed in, tweeting: Its a great day for New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. Congrats to both Drew Brees and the Saints on reaching a deal. Who Dat! The contract, which includes a $37 million signing bonus, also gives the Saints more flexibility under the NFLs salary cap. Because bonuses count against the cap on a pro-rated basis over the life of the contract $7.4 million per year in Breescase the quarterback will cost the club only $10.4 million against the cap in 2012. That gives Loomis nearly $6 million more in wiggle room to manage the entire roster than if Brees had played for the franchise tag. His cap number will rise well above $20 million by the final years of his deal, but Loomis will at least have more time to plan for that, and the current salary cap of about $120 million is expected to have risen by then. New Orleans had designated Brees, 33, its franchise player in March after the club was unable to reach a new long-term extension before his previous six-year, $60 million contract expired. Brees, however, was steadfast in not wanting to play for a one-year deal. During the past six seasons, Brees has not only led the Saints to their only Super Bowl title, but has completed more passes (2,488) for more yards (28,394) and more touchdowns (201) than any other quarterback in the NFL. His 67.8 percent completion rate spanning the past six seasons also tops the league. In 2011, Brees set NFLsingle-season records with 468 completions, 5,476 yards passing and a completion percentage of 71.2. His prolific passing numbers helped the Saints set an NFLhigh for total offensive yards in a season with 7,474. Breesyards passing record shattered a mark of 5,084 set by Dan Marino back in 1984. He led the Saints to a 13-3 regular-season record and second NFC South title in three seasons. New Orleans defeated Detroit in the first round of the playoffs before falling in the final seconds of its second-round game at San Francisco. Arriving in New Orleans the season after Hurricane Katrina struck, Brees has become arguably the most popular sports figure in the citys history. In addition to leading the club to its lone Super Bowl title for the 2009 season, Brees has become a civic pillar of the community. He and his wife have worked through their Brees Dream foundation to sponsor about $8 million in projects primarily aimed at improving the lives of children in the area through the refurbishing of schools or renovation of athletic fields and facilities. His foundation also has supported the arts, along with hospital facilities for cancer patients. In the Big Easy, he enjoys the status of royalty, even being invited to serve as the honorary king of some of the citys biggest Mardi Gras parades. This offseason marked the first time Brees had the opportunity to negotiate a major, long-term deal with the leverage provided by a string of injury-free seasons highlighted by a slew of individual and team statistical records, in addition to a championship. He commanded only second-round money when he was drafted by San Diego, and the Chargers placed the one-year franchise tag on him when that deal ran out in 2005. The right-handed Brees then had an injury the following season that required major surgery to his throwing shoulder, and which left him with few major offers during the 2006 offseason. He wound up signing the six-year deal in New Orleans that left him playing for well below what the top quarterbacks in the league earned during the past few seasons. Breesnew deal tops the previous benchmark contract for elite QBs set by the $96 million, five-year deal Denver gave earlier this offseason to Peyton Manning, who is three years older than Brees and sat out last season while recovering from neck surgery.
