C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK On July 15, t hen Public Safety Director John King wrote an extended email to the members of the city councila nd City Manager Julian Deleon.

In the message King warned the c ouncil: I am compelled (to write) by the fear that under the current path that we are following that the city and its tax-payers will be subject to further civil litigationa nd perhaps even a class action suit.

C M Y K At just 24 years of age, U .S. Army Reserve Sgt. Erika Bagley has already b een to Afghanistan twice. s something I always wanted to do since I was litt le, Sgt. Bagley told The Unknown Soldiers about serving her country. I did a semester of college and decided it wasnt for me, so Ij ust decided to join the Army While the western New York native was deployed to different areas of Afghanistani n 2007-08 and 2010, she had frequent interactions with the c ivilian population, whom the U.S. military has been help-i ng for almost 11 years. Of course, there are some locals who dont like us there, the soldier said. But all the locals that I met andt hat we worked with ... they were very appreciative of everything weve done for them. Being thousands of miles f rom home isnt easy for anyone, but Erika handled it about as well as a deployed soldier could. I emailed my mom a lot, so I definitely kept up communications with (my family), she said. Erikas unit helps combat troops stationed on remote forward-operating bases stay connected to the outside world. She is currently preparing for her third overseas deployment. It hasnt been harder than I expected it to be, the married satellite communications system specialist said. I enjoy every minute of it. Having spent nearly two years of her young life in Afghanistan, Erika is well aware of the sacrifices being made there. Sadly, a tragic July 8 incident is a sobering reminder of the daily risks that thousands of brave men and women in uniform face. On that violent Sunday in A fghanistans Wardak province, the Pentagon said s ix soldiers with the 93rd Military Police Battalion,b ased at TexasFort Bliss, died when an improvised explosive device blew up in the mountainous city of Maidan Shahr. O ne of the soldiers killed was U.S. Army Spc. Erica Alecksen, 21, a military police officer from Eatonton, Ga., a small city about 75m iles southeast of Atlanta. The fallen warrior leaves behind her husband, her parents, and a brother. What some people dont realize is that the sacrifice is real, Ericas aunt, Lydia Ivanditti, said just 16 days after her niece was killed. This isnt a video game. Itsa heart-wrenching, devastating experience to lose someone you love. Despite a petite frame, Erica volunteered for difficult duty, which often involved carrying heavy gear that added up to more than half her body weight. When she came home from boot camp, I asked her about the experience, Ivanditti said. She lookedme straight in the eye and said, I never let them see me cry. Not once. Many tears were shed on July 18 as Ericas flag-draped c asket was driven from the Greene County Regional A irport to her familys church. But as the soldiers grieving relatives rode in the m otorcade, there was reason for hope as citizens lined the streets. e would gasp as we came around the bends ands aw throngs of people ... thousands of people, Ericas aunt said. Youd see people on their front porches with hands on their hearts and lit-t le boys saluting. Afghanistan is barely ment ioned on the news these days, even though cities andt owns across America continue to suffer the devastating effects of war. It wasnt like she just affected one group of peo-p le, Ivanditti said about her niece, who was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star. She affected us all. Like Sgt. Erika Bagley, S pc. Erica Alecksen went to war because she felt a deep sense of obligation. She was excited to go A fghanistan and serve, her aunt said. It was a source of h onor and pride that she was getting to go. Only the most devoted A mericans put on a uniform and say, Ill go. They are the real celebrities of our culture, not actors, politicians, sports stars, or musicians. T his July at Wisconsins Fort McCoy, Sgt. Erika Bagley was the only woman participating in the Army Reserves Best WarriorC ompetition. By continuing to challenge herself as she p repares for a third deployment, she pays tribute to herf ellow troops, including those who made the ultimate sacrifice, like Spc. Erica Alecksen. s an honor to do this, s he said.

O n July 19, King formally resigned as public safety director. The city manager accepted his resignation, to become effective Aug. 1. Itw as agreed King would receive his severence package. In response to Kings email becoming public Tuesday afternoon, Deleons ent a copy of it to the media at 11:19 p.m. that included e xtensive comments of Deleons own point-bypoint refutations of Kingsc oncerns and rememberences. O n Wednesday, the NewsSun received word King was observed clearing out his office at the police station. A call was made to Deleon andh e simply confirmed King had vacated the position of p ublic safety director that day. Shortly after, Deleon c alled the News-Sun back. Johns resignation was only a couple of days away, he said, asking to be able to give a more detailed answer. He had completed the exit interview process, and has been allowed to leave with p ay Deleon added that he had c omplete confidence in Commander Jason Lister to lead the police department in the interim. He also said he is speaking with FireC aptain Steve Marquart to assist me with management of functions at the fire service. At 9:03 p.m. July 25, Deleon released a staff analysis regarding the sher-i ffs contract proposal (see accompanying article). K ing touched on several issues in his July 15 email, including his exclusion from negotiations with the sheriffs office regarding its pro-p osal for law enforcement service; an incident following the July 11 city council meeting between Deleon and APPD Detective Jesse Sappt hat has led to each gentleman filing a formal complaint against the other; Deleons request for sheriffs deputies to be brought in to future council meetings to maintain order; police department behavior in the past; and Kings request that Deleon be removed from the citys police contract negotiation team for what King said were reasons of bias and bad faith. King wrote that following the councils 3-2 vote on June 11 to ask the sheriff fora proposal for service which caught him by surprise he approached Deleon and said, that if there was to be any credibility or validation of the process that I needed to be present at all of the conversations with the Sheriffs Department. He added that h is 32 years of law enforcement experience would assist the city in getting am ore accurate and complete proposal. K ing writes that Deleon told him he would be a part of the negotiations, but thati n fact he was excluded. King said while he was not happy with Deleons decis ion to exclude him, he accepted it. H e reported that at one point Deleon told him, he had to have some discussions with the sheriff out of my presence. I n his commentary on Kings memo, Deleon wrote, It was indeed my original intent to keep you involved, and you were indeed involved in some of the discussions, and further, I kepty ou abreast on all matters of relevance. Deleon adds that h e forwarded emails to King and the PBAfrom the SO and that King did attend one meeting at the SO office. ith regards to some priv ate conversations which I had with the sheriff, this was my prerogative, Deleon wrote. I never asked you to validate or justify my actionst o anyone or for you to lend any credibility to the negotiation process ... Your perception regarding validation is just simply not needed. The core of their disagreement, Deleon wrote, was Kings conflict of interest which Deleon characterized as in favor of retaining the police department and Kings persistent requests to be part of the negotiations, even after Deleon had told him no. King referred to a July 11 confrontation between Deleon and Sapp following a city council meeting (see the story published Friday, July 20, Sparks fly at APPD debate www.newssun.com/072012ct-APPD-), that led to the detective and the city manager accusing each other of intimidation. I t was largely because some council members and Deleon felt intimidated byp olice officers, as well as the incident with Sapp, that led D eleon to ask for the sheriff deputiespresence at the next several council meet-i ngs, Deleon said. What do you expect me to do, Deleon wrote King. As the citys chief administrative officer, I made the c all to ensure everyones civil rights are equally protected. He added that in 2010 police officers has been disruptive during a meetinga nd he worried about a recurrence. King had written: I am offended once again. The citizens of Avon Park ought to be outraged at the city managers request and sug-g estion that our officers are somehow capable of doing h arm to him, the council, or any other person. They have taken the oath to serve and protect ... The officers are merely attempting to savet he police department as this is where they would rather be employed. Hell, if they didnt show up to meetings, then some would think thatt hey werent interested in keeping their jobs. This is a classic Catch-22, they are damned if they do and damned if they dont. This is nothing but an attempt to sensationalize the situation and portray your officers as being uncontrollable. Deleon responded, You call my request to the SO an effort to sensationalize, I call it better be safe than sorry. If there is an outburst at the council meeting, we want neutrality King wrote that Deleons email to the sheriff requesting deputies at the meetings is assuming a lot of liability leaving its officers patrolling the streets, based on the assertion that the council and city staff somehow need protection from its officers at the upcoming meetings. If they cant be trusted during t he meetings how can they be trusted on the street. Lets hope that until the consolod ation matter gets resolved that none of our officers are involved in any shootings or p hysical altercations while making arrests that result in injuries. This email, which is n ow a matter of public record, could be used against the city in any future litigation. King wrote that he in no way was saying the APPD posed a threat or couldnt b e t rusted at the meetings. He a lso suggested that if the request for protection was not rescinded, the city should place all of APPD o n leave with pay until the issue is resolved. Deleon rejected that idea. Again, while you are entitled to your opinions, Id isagree. The past history suggests that there were problems. You received com p laints from council members about intimidation ...E motions are high at the m eetings when the employment perspective is threatened. It is unfortunate that you failed to recognize the professional conflicts and issues. F inally, King expressed deep concerns regarding Deleons ability to keep ano pen mind and remain obje c tive regarding PBAand city union negotiations. H e wrote that in one con versation with Deleon, the city manager referred back to the Sapp incident. King reported that Deleon told him this was now persona l, t hat he was getting an attorney of his own and that he didnt care what was agreedt o with the PBA, or if we could match the proposal that he was going to stillr ecommend to the council that the sheriff take over police operations. D eleon wrote that a tenta tive, alternative agreement had been reached with the PBAand would be presented to the city council at its Aug. 4 meeting. If we had bargained in bad faith, a tentative agreement (pending legal language) would not have been reached, Deleon wrote. He added, If your concern really is my recommen dation to the council, there unfortunately you have no control over my formalized opinions and believes (sic ... it is my decision, and I will make it so, regardless of your accusations. The negotiating PBAprincipal, Stephen A. Micciche, confirmed Thursday that there is a tentative contract that will be presented to the city Aug. 4.

(APA man who claims to be the unknown victim molested in a Penn State shower by Jerry Sandusky in a case that led to Joe Paternos firing intends to sue the university for its egregious and reckless conduct that facilitated the abuse, his lawyers said Thursday. The lawyers have done an extensive investigation and gathered overwhelming evidence on details of the abuse by former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, they said in a statement. Our client has to live the rest of his life not only dealing with the effects of Sanduskys childhood sexual abuse, but also with the knowledge that many powerful adults, including those at the highest levels of Penn State, put their own interests and the interests of a child predator above their legal obligations to protect him, the statement said. The university said in a statement that it is taking the case seriously but cannot comment on pending litigation. University President Rodney Erickson and the Board of Trustees, the school said, have publicly emphasized that their goal is to find solutions that rest on the principle of justice for the victims. Prosecutors have said they dont know the identity of the boy molested by Sandusky in 2001. The encounter was spotted by a former graduate assistant who reported the abuse to school officials, including Paterno, but none of them told police. The victim is not named in the statement, and the APgenerally does not identify victims of sex crimes without their consent. The plaintiff has been identified in documents only as Victim 2. Sandusky awaits sentencing after being convicted of 45 sex abuse counts. Lawyers: Shower abuse victim to sue Penn State for cover-up Law Enforcement A lternatives for the City on Avon Parks website at www.avonpark.cc/. Apresentation by the police and fire pensionf unds actuary, Foster & Foster, regarding the pens ion fund is also posted. Despite his clear preference, Deleon said he willp ropose two alternatives to the city council on Aug. 4, t he day the council will make its final decision. It is the councils decision tom ake, he emphasized. The first alternative is to contract with the sheriff. This scenario consists of 16 deputies providing c ore services, and management services provided by the SO. The APPD command staff would continue tof unction with three sworn officers. In total the citys fiscal impact would be for 19 sworn officers. The APPD staff would act as backup to the SO, and would provide codee nforcement services for the city. Any law enforcem ent activity would be mutually coordinated thorough the SO. The second alternative was arrived at throughn egotiation between the city and the police union. It would keep the Avon Park Police Department. Negotiating principal for t he PBA, Stephen A. Micciche, told the NewsSun Thursday morning that the tentative labor contract included voluntary sacrifices by union members, including accepting a twotier pension system. Officers with fewer than five years of service would be shifted to a defined contribution plan, something similar to a 401k, and only nine officers would remain in the defined benefit plan, where members know in advance how much their retirement pay will be. The city can cap its contributions to the defined contribution plan at 13.5 percent. Micciche said officers vested in the defined benefit plan will raise their contribution from 5 percent to 8 percent, saving the city 3 p ercent. In addition, Micciche said, the officers did not ask for a raise, although t hey have not received gene ral raise in five years. They also agreed to a 15step program, up frome ight, meaning there are long-term savings for the c ity as officers will take 15 y ears to reach the maximum pay level. I n this alternative Deleon said the citys financial impact would be for 22s worn officers. H e did not address what the costs would be when additional deputies are assigned to the city. I n his analysis, Deleon r eported he and city elected officials had conversations with officials in Dundee,F rostproof, Eagle Lake and Fort Meade, all of which have law enforcement serv-i ce provided by the Polk County Sheriffs office. Both Dundee and FortM eade, Deleon wrote, have renewed their contractsw ith the PCSO and report complete satisfaction. Deleon said part of the s heriffs proposal involved the creation of a northern district headquarters based out of the APPD building, with some deputies dedicated to the city. D eleon said the APPD is moving toward accreditation, but it is an expensive p rocess and involves hiring another full-time officer to manage it. He added that the SO was already accredited, providing another savings to the city. Micciche complimented all participants in the negotiations, which he said were marked by professionalism. Despite the elevated emotions raised by the weeks of discussions, police officers are still doing what they need to do, Micciche said. They recognize the final decision will be strictly financial. He encouraged the city council, to make a lasting decision. The uncertainty (coming year after year causing disappointment, concern and anxiety within the police department. C ontinued from page 1A HCSOcontract is the way to go, Deleon says


C M Y K His decision was politicall y inspired,and his facts have been called into question. For F loridians desperate to get basic health care the consequences could be dire. Trainw reck,perfect storm,falling off the cliff all of these p hrases have been used to describe the impact of Scotts decision unless the Legislature takes a more t houghtful approach. The law upheld by the c ourt expands Medicaid to cover those at or under 133 percent of the federal povertyl evel. Currently,Florida has a much stricter threshold. ( The undocumented are not covered under any scenario.) The court held that states c ould not be punished if they opted out of expanded coverage,but theres a catch:The law also mandates some $18 billion in Medicaid paymentc uts nationwide. That was written into the bill on the assumption thed be offset by a lower burden of caring for the uninsured. If Florida continues to i gnore the working poor who cant afford health insura nce,these patients will have no recourse except to continue relying on public hospitalsf or unreimbursed care. But they will do so without t he increased funding that the new law guarantees as compensation for the states,placing the burden on local taxp ayers. ... The National Association of Public Hospitals estimates that about 4 million people who would have been eligiblef or Medicaid could go uninsured in states that have decided against expansion. In Florida,the move would expand coverage to an estimated one million morea dults and children. Rejecting expansion will w orsen the problem of uncompensated care in Florida,which already hast he third highest percentage of uninsured patients in the c ountry. ... Under the plan,the federal government would fund the f irst three years of expansion at 100 percent,but Florida w ould begin paying a small share after that,rising to 10 percent in 2020 and beyond.. ... Any demand for more M edicaid funding could pose a serious financial problem for Florida down the road.

Rick Scotts oh-so-quick dism issal of the opportunity to provide health care to more Floridians under Medicaid,which came just one day after the Supreme Court decision upholding most of the Affordable Care Act,should not be the Cox cares greatly for the studentsEditor: W ally Coxs 36 years of work experience with the Highlands County school board qualifies him as the best choice for Superintendent of Schools.T wenty-four years in the Finance Department prepared him well to take over the position of Superintendent of Schools,a job he has successfully handled for the past 12 years. Particularly noteworthy is how he has managed hisr esponsibilities during the recent financial crunch which has created a n immense hardship for the schools in our county. Our county is fortunate that our superintendent and school board have been able to prevent our schools from being ina s dire financial straits as some other school districts,an achievement that has required implementing some difficult policies. My experience with S uperintendent Cox is that he cares greatly for the students of Highlands County and is willing to make the tough but thoughtful choices necessary to ensure that our students receive the best education possible. I know he does not take lightly his responsibility to the teachers and other HCSB employees and is concerned when financial cut-backs affect the staff. He has shown a willingness to listen to concerns of staff,parents and members of the community and has indicated a desire to resolve the problems presented to him. It is the nature of the beast that an incumbent is often the subject of much criticism during campaigning. I commend Wally for running a clean campaign based on his qualifications instead of responding to criticism in like manner. I urge voters to investigate thoroughly each candidate for Superintendent of Schools. Speak to others in the community and those who have worked with the candidates to get an idea if the candidate is as he presents himself. Rather than giving credence to the complaints about the current administration,study each candidates platform (if there is one how he plans to implement it. Then give our school district the best opportunity possible to educate our children by electing Wally Cox as Superintendent of Schools. Peggy Doublerley SebringPeck has drive to stop the hemorrhagingEditor: Roberta Peck is the only educational servant leader to improve schools by being the best steward of taxpayer dollars. She has been at eacher who has relentlessly hammered away for better spending. Peck tried to halt the $1.3 million principal-teacher evaluation program,which required another $100,000 salary to run,too costly to maintain the following year. Cox is an accountant. I want a superintendent who is wise in how to spend taxpayer money marked for education. Civil servants,working solely from behind a desk,tend to be notoriously wasteful with taxpayer money. Coxs solution to the dropout problem was to throw more money at it. A competent educator at the helm would have recognized the flaws in that $500,000 DropInprogram. Results:an escalation in our dropout rate. A True Servant leader needs to get out from behind a desk and be a presence in schools so they can learn directly what is going on. Cox spent less than four hours at D-ratedAvon Park High School last year; our failing schools should require the most attention. We have too manschools and escalating local crime because of truancy. A seasoned educator,Roberta Peck is the type of educator who knows what is going on. Massive study halls at Lake Placid High School,too noisy for kids to study in,are the result of lack of teachers. Voters need to question why it is that two Sebring A-B-rated middle schools send kids into a high school where the kids digress to the perpetual rating of mediocre On her website,Peck points to the present culture of secrecy around students accessing inappropriate websites on computers. Peck points out how this secrecy is part of growing pervasive culture of mediocrity and disinterest in learning. SHS now has the highest dropout rate. Peck offers a solution to students accessing porn in the classroom (www.electpeck.com). Cox accepted a $15,000 raise while he was slashing teachers. True leadership requires the will to cut at the top,and restructure those obscene school board salaries of $373 an hour,so we can hire enough teachers to teach. I,and my children,Alex and Zoe Vu,have been in the system. Roberta Peck has the drive to get out and stop the hemorrhaging of wasted taxpayer dollars in areas too numerous to mention in this letter. Jaime (Vu) Fowler SebringCox continues to make sound fiscal decisionsEditor: Three years ago I retired from The School Board of Highlands County after 41 years of service as a teacher and principal. During that time I had the privilege of working with Wally Cox when he was finance director and in his current position as superintendent. Due to his extensive background in f inance and understanding of the budgeting process,he continues to m ake sound fiscal decisions in this struggling economy. Many of these decisions involve personnel,sched-u les and programs throughout the school system that are extremely d ifficult to make. Mr. Cox has not side stepped his responsibility in favor of easier,short term or popul ar solutions,a fact we should remember when we vote. Also,looking at the broader picture,the responsibilities of the superintendent involve so muchm ore than managing the tax dollars. The hiring and dismissal of staff,evaluating and monitoring district and school board administrators,curriculum leadership,d ealing with legal issues,meeting with parents,students and the publ ic,working on various committees at the local and state levels areo nly some of the responsibilities. Having been a member of his team, I have observed him carrying out his responsibilities with integrity and fidelity. He is a professionalw ho is deeply committed to providing our students with the best educational opportunities that can be offered. Wally Cox is a true servant leader. I believe it is in the best interest of the school system,our community,our parents and especially for our children to begin the next four years with proven leadership. From my many years of working directly with Mr. Cox,I know he has the experience,dedication and commitment to continue leading our school system and providing quality educational opportunities for the students of Highlands County. Dan Johnson SebringBrooks will work for the citizensEditor: I am writing in support of my friend,Jim Brooks,who is currently seeking election to the office of county commissioner. I have known Jim for more than years. During that time,I was the administrator of Walker Memorial Hospital and he was the director of the Emergency Medical Services for Highlands County. We were able to accomplish several things during that time that were of a benefit to the citizens of Highlands County. Also during that time,I found him to be a person of high moral character and willing to work for the good of his community. I think that Jim Brooks will be a good county commissioner and will work for the well-being of all the citizens of our county.

Associated PressDENVER As reports emerged of a suspicious package sent to a university the suspect in the Coloradot heater shooting once attended, the first memorial service was held for a victim of the massacre. The University of C olorado Denver said Wednesday that the U.S. Postal Service delivered the package Monday, and it was immediately investigated andt urned over to authorities within hours. It wouldnt confirm its contents or whether it was sent by former neuroscience graduate student JamesH olmes. However multiple media outlets, citing u nnamed sources, reported Holmes sent a notebook with drawings and descriptions ofa n attack. Fox Newswebsite was a mong those reporting the notebook was in a package addressed to a psychiatrist at the school. It was unclear if Holmes, 24, had had any pre-v ious contact with the person. The neuroscience prog ram that he withdrew from on June 10 included professors of psychiatry. H olmes is accused of opening fire on a theater s howing the new Batman movie, killing 12 people and injuring 58. He is due to hear the charges against him at a court hearing scheduledM onday. NBC News, citing unnamed sources, reported that Holmes told investigators to look for the packagea nd that it described killing people. The FBI and other law enforcement agencies refused to confirm the reports to TheA ssociated Press. U.S. Postal Service spokesman David Rupert said the agencys inspectors have no direct knowledge of the package in question. Hes aid no one has contacted the Postal Service for assistance i n the investigation. Before a judge issued a gag order in the case, police saidH olmes received more than 50 packages at the school and h is home that apparently contained ammunition, combat gear and explosive materials that he used in the attack and to booby-trap his Auroraa partment. The apartment building w as evacuated for days while authorities rendered it safe and collected evidence.R esidents were allowed to return Wednesday. H olmesdefense team also briefly visited the building W ednesday and left without answering reportersquestions. Holmes, who grew up in California, was allegedlys tockpiling for the attack while he studied at the s chools neuroscience program. He bought a shotgun and pistol in May, authoritiess ay. On June 7, the date he took a year-end oral exam, he b ought an assault rifle. He filed paperwork to leave the p rogram three days later and did not provide a reason, the university has said. Meanwhile, 51-year-old Gordon Cowden was honoredW ednesday at the first memorial service for a slain victim. A bout 150 mourners including Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper gatheredo n Wednesday the father who had gone to see The Dark K night Rises with his teenage children. His child ren were unharmed. Cowden lived in Aurora, the Denver suburb where the theater is located. Afamily statement described him as a true Texas gentleman who loved the outdoors and o wned his own business. Aquick-witted world traveler with a keen sense of humor, he will be remem-b ered for his devotion to his children and for always trying his best to do the right t hing, no matter the obstacle, his family said. Cowdens memorial was a lso attended by Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan and A urora Police Chief Dan Oates. Later this week, families of other victims planned to say their final goodbyes. Funerals were planned in t owns from San Antonio, home of aspiring sportscaster Jessica Ghawi, to Crystal Lake, Ill., hometown of Navy intelligence officer John T homas Larimer. Pierce OFarrill, who survived being shot three times i n the attack, told The Denver P ost he has forgiven the gunman and feels sorrow for him. I want to see him somet ime.

Until now, the Medicaid debate has been about budgets and statesrights. But a statistical study by Harvard researchers in the New England Journal of Medicine found a 6 percent drop in the adult death rate in Arizona, Maine and New York, three states that have recently expanded coverage for lowincome residents along the general lines of the federal health care law. The study found that for every 176 adults covered under expanded Medicaid, one death per year would be prevented. Policymakers should be should be aware that major changes in Medicaid either expansions or reductions in coverage may have significant effects on the health of vulnerable populations, wrote the researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health. Medicaid is a federal-state program for low-income and severely disabled people. It covers about 60 million people in the United States. The new law assigned Medicaid a major role in expanding coverage, accounting for about half the 30 million uninsured people expected to gain insurance as a result of the health overhaul. But the Supreme Court last month ruled that states have the leeway to reject the laws Medicaid expansion, which is geared to reach mostly uninsured adults without children and with annual incomes up to about $15,400.

The seven were nominate d by their peers, reviewed by the FACAAwards C ommittee and voted on by the FACABoard of D irectors. The seven upcoming i nductees are, George Coffey, KissimmeeOsceola, Softball; David Frantz, Lakewood Ranch, Golf; Phil Hayford, St. PeteShorecrest Prep/Canterbury School, Football; Ed McPadden, Marion County Schools, Baseball/AD; Marcia Pinder, Ft. LauderdaleDillard, Basketball; John Wilkinson, Cocoa, Football; and Joe Franza, Avon Park, Football. Franza and Hayford are honored posthumously. To be eligible for induction, a minimum of 20 years of service in the coaching profession, in Florida, and/or participation in FACAin required. Criteria for selection are based on coaching record, championships won, head coaching tenure, FACA service and awards. The Florida Athletic Coaches Association is comprised of more than 5,000 member coaches, both high school and college, in the state of Florida. The FACAsponsors 10 High School All-Star Classics in nine sports, conducts four coaching clinics each year and recognizes coaches for the exemplary efforts supporting the youth of this state. Franzas induction came after an exhaustive, threeyear effort by former Red Devil quarterback Reggie Butler. I played for him from 1956-58, and my two brothers also played for him,B utler said in a phone interview Thursday. Not only was he a great football coach, he was a leader ofy oung men. He wasnt one to scream a nd holler, but he was a Marine Corps guy, who was t ough and no-nonsense. He was worshiped by all of us t hat played for him, he continued. Afew years ago we had a party at his ranch, and there were hundreds, if not over 1,000 people who showed up. It was heartwarming to see all those people who had played for him over the years. According to his biography on the Avon Park Champions Club webpage, Joe Franza was born on Dec. 29, 1924 in Murphysboro, Ill. AtMurphysboro High School, ironically enough, also the Red Devils, he wasa multi-sport star, lettering in football and baseball, and was a state champion pole vaulter. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1942, serving in the South Pacific as a communications specialist until the end of the World War II. He returned to marry his high school sweetheart and earned an athletic scholarship first at the nearby University of Southern Illinois in Carbondale, and then Erskine College, where he graduated in 1949. He was inducted into the Erskine College Hall of Fame in 1985 for his prowess in basketball, track and football during the two years he was there. He had a distinguished career at Avon Park High School which spanned 31 years. He coached from 1949 until 1972, during which time the Red Devil football team had 138 wins, 68 loses and 10 ties. During this time they reached nine title games, earned five Ridge Conference titles,three district titles andone regional title. He was named Coach of the Year in 1962. During his tenure, teams were known for their physicality and toughness. He also concentrated a greatdeal of effort on fielding as many players as possible duringa game. Even the most unlikely athlete found his way into a game if he was willing to work hard and follow instructions. He also served as the athletic director and worked in the community with an athletic association for fund raising. Due to personal illness in 1972, he retired from coaching but continuedon as athletic director and served as a Dean of Students until 1980.In 1984 he was electSPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, July 27, 2012 Fishin Around... Don Norton L ast week was a challenging week for me. I had planned a trip to Lake June for Wednesday and another trip over to the Gulf Coast to do a little wade fishing with my buddy Bob Scranton for snook, redfish and sea-trout. Neither trip came to pass. Three weeks ago I was driving to Tallahassee for a business meeting in the mid-d le of Tropical Storm Debby when my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee came to a rolling stop while traveling 70m iles an hour on I-10. Engine lights, as well as o ther warning lights came on, but by the time I finally r olled to a stop, the engine was blown. A fter being towed into Tallahassee, the service manager said something flew up and hit my radiator, forcing the fluid to drain quickly, locking up the engine. Long story short, my engine and radiator had to be replaced. It was supposed to be done Monday, so I drove the rental car up to Tallahassee Tuesday only to learn they were still waiting on parts. Thursday morning about 11 a.m., I finally picked up my Jeep and drove the 5 1/2hour trip back to Sebring. As it turned out, I had received an email from one of my readers, Pastor Dereck Frymier of Sebring, and after exchanging a few emails and a phone call or two, I invited him to join me Saturday on Lake Istokpoga. We met at the boat ramp around 7:30 a.m. and Dereck filled me in on his previous trips to Lake Istokpoga and his limited knowledge of the lake. We hit one of my favorite spots first, on the northeast corner of the lake and were rewarded with a small 8inch bass after 2 hours of flipping. Dereck had never flipped before so as he continued to improve, we worked the edge of the reeds, finally running into another bass fisherman doing the same. As I pulled around the other bass boat, one of the anglers was landing a bass when I recognized Joe Medlock, one of the top bass fishermen in the area. They had caught a couple, but they werent tearing them up either. If youre looking for the best flippinjig, Joe created it some time ago and its been mentioned in numerous articles in national publications over the past year. Anumber of the top pros have been using Joes lure with great success. What makes his weedless jig so unique is the 6/0 hook combined with a double weedguard. It also has one of the best blue/black skirts Ive ever seen on a jig.

RUSSO A ssociated PressIf you are a college football coach in need of a player or two, Penn States misfortune could turn out to be your teams lucky strike. Theres a blue-and-white plate special going on right now in Happy Valley, and coaches from all over the country are looking at the Nittany Lionsroster like a menu even though a hoard of Penn State players have pledged to stick with the s chool through the tough times. Illinois coaches were in State College, Pa., to recruit on Wednesday. Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez told reporters his staff has talked with a couple of Nittany Lions. Baylor coach Art Briles has said his staff was contacted by at least one Penn State player. Preseason practice starts at Penn State on Aug. 6. The next two weeks could be the most difficult of Bill OBriens coaching career as he tries to keep his team together. NCAAsanctions will keep the Nittany Lions out of a bowl game for the rest of these playerscareers, and college sportsgoverningb ody is allowing any of them to transfer to another school and get on the field right away. T he only restriction is they cannot practice or play with P enn State this year and still p lay for another school this season. Players can transfer and be eligible for next season any time before the start of fall practice in 2013, but OBrien should know what he has to work with in 2012 on Aug. 6. And he got some good news on Wednesday. At least 13 players listed as first-stringers on the preseason depth chart affirmed their commitment to staying in Happy Valley, including senior quarterback Matt McGloin. e want to let the nation know that were proud of who we are, senior fullback Michael Zordich said, flanked by his fellow players early Wednesday morning. Were the true Penn Staters, and were going to stick together through this. Were going to see this thing through, and were going to do everything we can for the university. We know its not going to be easy, but we know what were made of. Neither Zordich nor senior linebacker Michael Mauti both sons of former Penn State players mentioned former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky by name during the impromptu news conference, where they didnt take any questions after reading a statement. e take this as an opportunity to create our own legacy, Mauti said. This program was not built by one man and its sure as hell not going to get torn down byo ne man. This program was built on every alumni, every single player that came before us, built on their b acks. The Nittany Lions cant p lay in a bowl game until the 2 016 season after an unprecedented child sex abuse scandal that shattered the programs image as a place where success with honor was the rule. The scholarship reductions theyll receive could make it d ifficult for OBrien to field a competitive squad during the next few seasons. On Twitter, McGloin called the NCAApenalties extremely harsh. I am a Nittany Lion and will remain one, he tweeted. I believe in the core values I have learned in this program. It is not Nittany Lion Football. It is Nittany Lion family Along with Mauti, Z ordich, McGloin and Morris, players listed as firstteamers who attended Wednesday included wide r eceiver Allen Robinson; offensive linemen Donovan Smith, Matt Stankiewitch, J ohn Urschel and Adam Gress; tight end Kyle Carter; d efensive linemen DaQuan Jones and Pete Massaro; and c ornerback Adrian Amos. That group includes six seniors, three juniors, two sophomores and two redshirt freshmen. On Wednesday night, incoming freshman quarterback Steven Bench from Georgia joined the committed, tweeting: I have decided to stay at Penn State. I promise this team is special and will SHOCK THE WORLD over the next 4 years. Penn State spokesman Jeff Nelson said other players had committed to return but wereu nable to attend Wednesday because of classes or internships. But some players will w eigh whether to transfer, with other schools wooing them. T he biggest name is running back Silas Redd, who r ushed for 1,241 yards as a sophomore last season. R edd has yet to reveal his plans. Illinois spokesman Kent Brown confirmed that a group of assistant coaches traveled to State College on Wednesday to talk to some Nittany Lions players. Brown said Illini athletic director Mike Thomas informed Penn State of the trip and that it came after Nittany Lions players contacted the Illini. Cornerback Stephon Morris, who attended Wednesdays news conference, tweeted: We have chosen to stay at PSU & other opposing coaches are outside our apartment. Was that the i ntentions of the NCAA. He added the hashtags LeaveUsAlone and eAre. There probably wont be a parade of opposing coaches showing up on the Penn State campus over the next week or so. Most will take a slightly more subtle approach and players can take five official recruiting visits to other schools, just as they did when they were being recruited out of high school. B ut it wont be surprising to see some enemy colors around Happy Valley. OBrien told ESPN on Wednesday that while opposing coaches needed only to email or fax the compliance department to receive clearance to speak to players, heb elieved there was a protocol they should follow. OBrien cited Central Floridas George OLeary, S yracuses Doug Marrone and Iowas Kirk Ferentz as h aving reached out to him first. M arrone and OBrien are close friends from the time they spent working on OLearys staff at Georgia Tech. Its been less than tw o weeks since an investigation by former FBI director Louis Freeh concluded former coach Joe Paterno and other high-ranking university officials covered up abuse allegations involving Sandusky, who awaits sentencing on charges he abused 10 boys, some of them in team facilities. I n that time, Paternos bronze likeness has been removed from outside Beaver Stadium and the NCAAi mposed harsh sanctions that include a $60 million fine a nd a four-year bowl ban. The NCAAalso erased 1 4 years of Paternos victories, stripping him of his standing as the winningest coach in the history of big-time college football. No sanction, no politician i s ever going to take away what weve got here, Mauti said. None of thats ever going to tear us apart. Right now all we can do is put our heads down, and were just going to work. Thats all we can do. Were going to fightf or Penn State, fight for each other, because this is what Penn States about fighting through adversity Soon after the players spoke, Penn State announcedt hat no players would be made available for Big Ten m edia days, which are Thursday and Friday in Chicago. AP Sports Writer Rachel Cohen in New York, Associated Press W riter David Mercer in Champaign, Ill., and freelance r eporter Jeff Rice in State C ollege, Pa., contributed to this story. Sanctions give PSU opponents chance to cherry pick MCTphoto Penn State head coach Bill OBrien faces a daunting two weeks as he tries to keep his players while other programs t ry to persuade them to leave Happy Valley. APphoto Torchbearer Darren Fitzpatrick carries the Olympic Flame through the streets of Camden in London, ahead of the 2012 Summer Olympics, Thursday, July 26, 2012, The Olympic Torch was carried around England in a relay of torchbearers to make its way to the opening ceremony on Friday. By RAPHAELSATTER A ssociated PressLONDON The Olympic torch began a festive valedictory lap around London on Thursday, taking in some of the sun-drenched capitals most famous landmarks on the second-to-last day of its trek across Britain. The torch carried by athletes, charity workers and celebrities thrilled thousands of Londoners as it swept across Regents Canal in Camden, through the citys newly renovated neo-gothic train station at St. Pancras and down the winding streets of the ancient City of London. For many Londoners, it was their first glimpse of a golden beacon that has spent the past 68 days traveling up and down the country, from Loch Ness to Lands End, as well as going across the water to Ireland and Northern Ireland. Later Thursday, it was to be carried past some of the citys most impressive landmarks, including the Houses of Parliament, 10 Downing St. and Buckingham Palace, where it will be greeted by Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. The torch completes its 70day, 8,000-mile (12,900-kilometer) journey on Friday, lighting the Olympic Stadiums cauldron in a ceremony marking the official start of the 2012 London Games. The identity of the final torchbearer is still a closely guarded secret. Thursdays relay, which began in a burst of sunshine following months of awful weather, lifted Londons spirits. In the north London neighborhood of Camden, many families with young children got up early to cheer as the torch kicked off its relay at the Victorian-era Roundhouse music hall around 6:50 a.m. The good-natured crowd defied security guards efforts to corral them behind barriers, mobbing Clive Woodward, the former English rugby star who was the first torchbearer of the day. Others, like 19-year-old Anastasia Gribaldi, were surprised to see the torch after an all-night clubbing session. It was pretty cool to see it actually, said the teenage Goth, who sported blackand-purple hair. It was like: ow, its the torch!We werent expecting it. The torch later sped across Londons River Thames with Paralympic champion Ade Adipitan, whose dreadlocks flapped in the wind as he propelled his wheelchair across the slender Millennium Bridge. Londoners who have spent much of the past few weeks worrying about rain, Olympic security, and strikes appeared to lighten up. In the south London borough of Lambeth, thick, flagwaving crowds chanted We want the torch! In nearby Wandsworth, 24year-old John Lake a cancer survivor who has raised thousands of pounds (dollars for the Brain Research Trust pumped his fist and waved the torch back and forth as he ran down the road with a mile-wide grin. Make some noise! someone shouted as the crowd erupted into cheers. The crowds thickened further as the torch made its way back across the Thames, with Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders who played Patsie and Edina in the British comedy Absolutely Fabulous taking the flame for a jaunty walk in Londons wealthy Chelsea neighborhood. Not everyone was caught up in the Olympic excitement. It was pretty convenient that it came through as I was getting my morning coffee, said Jack Tate, a 28-year-old retail worker in Camden. Now I can say Ive seen it. Theres no need to watch any more of this Olympics rubbish for the next few weeks. Paisley Dodds and Sheila Norman-Culp contributed to this report.

C M Y K ed to his first of two terms on the HighlandsCounty School Board, serving as chairman for one of thoseyears. One of his proudest moments was the dedication of the Avon Park High School stadium to him. Throughout his life he was an active man and an avid outdoorsman, during retirem ent he took up golf, the guitar and wood crafting. Hewas a Past Worshipful Master of the Masonic Lodge, a Rotarian, and a member ofUnion Congregational Church. He was a man of honor, a dedicatedhusband,father, grandfather, friend and patriot. One great innovation Franza began was the Avon Park Circus, which ran from 1951-60. That really evolved from the short football season, Butler said. There was a lot of time until baseball season, which a lot of the guys also played, but this gave us a chance to stay in shape. e were also a bunch of kids from blue collar homes, and the circus really opened our eyes to other things, opened our minds, he continued. So much of what he did, his leadership, becoming a family and opening us up to n ew things, he really helped set us on a path to greatness.

Dereck and I finally landed a couple of bass after talking to Joe, and since he had never seen too much of Lake Istokpoga, we went fora little boat ride to blow the bugs off and cool down. Reaching the small reed islands on the east side oft he Big Island, we started f lipping again. Something turned the fish on and by 2 p.m., wed boated between 10 and 12 nice bass. Nothing big, most in the 1 1/2 to 3-pound class, but plenty of hits. B y this time Dereck was flippinlike a pro, making precision flips with a blue/black yum-dinger, and quickly experiencing the difference between this type of fishing and the normal worm fishing he was accustomed to. The hit or pick-up is much faster flipping the baits, often with only a line-jump or noticing thel ine moving towards you. Unlike casting out a plastic worm, your reaction time flipping has to be immedi-a te. Allowing the bass to m ove back into the reeds, circling the reeds or even o ut from the reeds and under your boat can spell trouble. O ne of the reasons I prefer a short, fat plastic worm is I believe the bass can suck in this bait without a lot of hangover. Larger worms, as Ive witnessed in aquariums, often have the bass holding half the worm in their jaws and the other half (often the section with your hook) hanging outside. Obviously, when you set the hook, all youre doing is tearing the worm apart or pulling it out of his mouth. I believe you get a better hook-set with a smaller worm or jig. Dereck had lost a couple of nice fish, as I had. We saw most of them, and of course, they were bigger fish. I suspect they werent overly aggressive picking u p the bait, but Dereck was getting pretty frustrated losing a couple in a row. Finally, just before we called it a day, Dereck hit a r eally big fish. It came right up, just below the surface, gave a quick turn and swam away. Not sure what happened to lose the fish, but it truly was a wall-hanger. Dereks hook-set was g ood, and by all accounts he should have hooked that fish. But as we all know, sometimes you just cant explain why the big ones get away. I reminded Dereck that losing a big fish is one of the reasons we keep coming b ack! I also suggested he keep the faith. N ever-the-less, we had a great day on the water. Dereck learned how to flip, we caught a dozen bas s and enjoyed a great day of just swappinfishinstories. Dereck is the Pastor of New Life Fellowship, 2213 Rainbow Ave., Sebring, Florida 33870.

When we put the team together, none of us had any idea that we would be underperforming en masse, S amson said during a telephone interview. Its not j ust one player. It is all playe rs. So one of the hardest things to do is look in the mirror and say that we didnt get it right, and thats what we did. We want to restructure because we want to win games. As the team prepared to move into its new $634 million retractable-roof ballpark, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria hired Ozzie Guillen as manager last fall and committed $191 million in a five-day span during the offseason to sign All-Stars Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell. The team agreed to star in a Showtime reality series, The Franchise. In their colorful new uniforms, the Marlins were 3123 through June 3, just percentage points out of first place, then lost 17 of their next 20 games. They are 45-53, 13 1/2 games out of first place and just a half-game above last. Samson said president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest approached Loria and Samson after the Marlins lost two of three at the even-worse Chicago Cubs last week. He didnt feel as though things were trending properly for us to keep the team as is and make the playoffs, Samson said. Miami might not be done, with pitcher Josh Johnson and Bell also trade possibilities before Tuesdays deadline to make swaps without waivers. Be careful with what you think, what you say, and how you smile because you might be next, Guillen said. Thats the way it has to go if you dont perform. Thats business. After winning the 1997 World Series, the Marlins jettisoned high-priced stars Moises Alou, Kevin Brown, Al Leiter, Robb Nen, Jeff Conine and Devon White. They won the Series again in 2003, then allowed Ivan Rodriguez, Ugueth Urbina, Derrek Lee, Mark Redman, Braden Looper and Juan Encarnacion to depart. The 28-year-old Ramirez is hitting .249 with 14 home runs and 49 RBIs after going2 for 4 with a triple, RBI single and walk in the Dodgers3-2, 12-inning loss at St. Louis. Thats a steep decline from his big season in 2009, when he hit a league-leading .342 with 24 homers and 106 RBIs. I am sad to go, Ramirez said as he left the Marlins. This will be always be my home, but it will just be a little different. Athree-time All-Star, he shifted from shortstop to third base this season to make room for Reyes. s sad to see Hanley go to another team, Reyes said. We developed a great relationship. I feel he was one of my real good friends on the team. After losing in Ramirezs first game, Los Angeles remained 2 1-2 games behind NLWest-leading San Francisco. The Dodgers followed a 32-15 start by losing 31 of their next 52. ou never know what a change of scenery will do for somebody, Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said. We see him as one of our main guys. After filing for bankruptcy in 2011, the Dodgers were bought from Frank McCourt for $2 billion on May 1 in a move that led to Stan Kasten becoming team president. Ramirez has a $15 million salary this year and is owed $15.5 million next year and $16 million in 2014. ere not going to let money stand in the way of a true baseball deal. And if we can improve the club, the financial piece of it will always be there, Colletti said. Its kind of a liberating thing because were able to make a baseball trade. We found a player that we really like, that we think can add to our lineup and at the same time show the guys who have been busting their tail for the last three months that we acknowledge how hard theyve played and to get them the support that we can. Its good to not have to worry too much about what its going to cost you from a financial standpoint. This (ownership win. Ramirez started at third base on Wednesday night but will shift to his old position as soon as he is comfortable. Dee Gordon is on the disabled list with a torn ligament in his right thumb that could sideline him until mid-August and is batting only .229 with 17 RBIs. I look at it as he has a clean slate, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. Anything thats happened in his past has nothing to do with me, has nothing to do with the Dodgers. Its basically moving forward. Choate, a 36-year-old lefty, is 0-0 with one save and a 2.49 ERAin 44 games. Eovaldi, a 22-year-old righty, is 1-6 with a 4.15 ERA. He is to make his Marlins debut on Saturday against San Diego. In addition to saving the money owed Ramirez, the Marlins cut Sanchezs $8 million salary. The message to our fans is we signed so many players and had such a big payroll not for any other reason than to win games, Samson said, and it wasnt happening enough.

C M Y K Cataract is one of the leading causes of reversiblev ision loss in the world and ranks as the most common a ge-related eye disease in America. Most of us will develop cataracts as a naturalc ourse of aging over time and eventually need to have t hem removed. A cataract is simply an opacification of the normallyc lear crystalline lens located directly behind the iris,or colored part of the eye. As t he opacity becomes more dense over time,it hinders t he patients ability to see as well as they once did. Depending on the type of cataract that forms,complaints may consist of:B lurred vision (more at distance than at near),glare (especially at night with oncoming headlights or streetlights),difficulty reading (due to the sensation of dimness,or not havinge nough light),reduced color perception,or may not prese nt with any complaints at all. Cataracts result from a variety of causes. Non-modifiable risk factors includea ge,gender,size of the crystalline lens,family history of cataracts and near-sightedness. Major environmental factors include UV exposure,n utrition,smoking,living in warmer temperatures and increased body mass. Trauma (ocular or head contusion),toxic (use of steroids and other medications) and intraocular inflammation can all lead to cataracts. Radiation,intraocular tumors and degenerative ocular disease (i.e. retinitis pigmentosa) are also associated with cataract development. Certain systemic diseases are linked to cataract formation, including:Diabetes (cataracts often develop rapidly),hypocalcemia, Wilsons disease,myotonic dystrophy and Downs syndrome to name a few. Nearly three million cataract surgeries are performed every year in the United States. A cataract does not have to be ripe before surgery takes place, since the risk of complications from surgery are small. Today,2.75 mm incisions are the standard. Sutures are rarely necessary and recovery time is rapid. When a cataract is removed,a man-made implant is inserted in its place in order to improve the patients vision. Fortunately, technology continues toi mprove. New i mplants are available that cana llow patients to h ave distance,intermediate andn ear vision, in many cases without the use of b ifocals. Just a few examples of the latest technology in p remium implants include: The ReSTOR multifocal and Crystalens. Each premium lens has distinct characteristics that make them an idealm atch for certain patients. The early results of the ReSTOR multifocal indicate that it provides predictable visual acuity,a greater depth of focus,as well as UV protection. T oric intraocular lenses are also gaining popularity a mong cataract surgeons as they can provide effective correction of corneal astigmatism. The visual results are typically more pre-d ictable than with multifocal or accommodating implants and patient satisfaction is high. As with any new technology,however,there arel imitations to toric implants in that they are not an appropriate solution for every patient with corneal astigmatism. Patients with significant irregular astigmatism, those with progressive corneal disease and patients with astigmatism that cannot be measured reliably will probably not benefit from these types of implants. Only your eye surgeon can determine if one of these newer toric implants would be right for you. Whenever a patients vision is not good enough to accommodate his lifestyle, cataract surgery is necessary. Referral to a cataract surgeon is appropriate when the patients vision cannot be improved with a change in glasses. Cataract surgery may be performed for reasons other than to improve visual acuity. Surgery may be needed as therapy for ocular disease (i.e. lensrelated glaucoma) or to manage ocular disease more effectively (i.e. monitoring diabetic retinopathy). Ar eferral may be made when the cataract has become so d ense that it precludes a view of the back of the eye in a diabetic patient. The eyed octor has to be able to see the retina in order to screen t he patient for diabetic retinopathy. In contrast,cataract surg ery should be delayed for a longer period of time in patients who have macular d egeneration. The visual outcome may not be as good a s expected since some of the vision loss may possibly be due to the macular degeneration. A more dramatic improvement will be noticedb y the patient if they can wait for the cataract to progress to a more mature level. If a patient with macular degeneration chooses not to wait,they need to under-s tand that cataract removal may not improve their vision i n the way they expect. Brightness and color perception may be better,but its impossible to guarantee improvement in clarityd epending on the severity of the macular degeneration. It is rare in todays age of medical technology for a cataract to require urgentt reatment. Those patients who decline surgical removal of their cataracts should be re-examined every year,or sooner if there is a noticeable decline in their vision. So far,no human trial has definitively shown clinically significant data that any one treatment or combination of treatments can result in a delay in onset,reduction in progression,or reversal of symptoms of age-related cataract. The most effective way to prevent cataract formation or delay progression include avoiding dehydration and illness,improving nutrition, refraining from smoking, and limiting sun exposure.

C M Y K By DAVID BAUDER AP Television WriterN EW YORK The Summer Olympics opening ceremony takes place Friday, but the first of 5,535 hours that NBC is showing of theg ames begins Wednesday with qualifying rounds in womens soccer. With so many different options, viewers need a road map tom ake sense of it all. NBC is promising that every competition in London will be available to U.S. consumers live,with the bulk oft hem seen online. The centerpiece of coverage will be NBCs prime-t ime,8 p.m. to midnight on most evenings,with Bob Costas as host. Given thet ime difference with England,all of the events w ill be shown on a tapedelayed basis,although particularly rabid fans will havet he opportunity to see each of these events online during t he day. Costas will give people an overview of the days big stories. But the prime-time package is not designed too ffer a complete picture of the games. As in the past, N BC will be heavy on personal stories to make nonsports fans interested ins trangers they will see competing in sports they rarely f ollow with the obvious exception of known personalities like Michael Phelps. A nd if you want badminton or boxing,youll have to turn elsewhere:the primetime hours are generally concentrated on the swim-m ing,diving,gymnastics and track and field competitions. New to NBC this year is the amount of coverage pre-s ented during the business day,starting at 10 a.m. foll owing the Todayshow. The cable and satellite n etworks all avoid primetime hours to funnel those viewers into NBC. Except for those hours and the overnight in London,a view-e r could expect to see competition on NBC and cable the rest of the day. The NBC Sports Network, for example,is on the air from 4 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET onS unday,the second full day of the competition. The cable and satellite outfit did not exist during the last Olympics and will show 292h ours of competition this year. It is being positioned a s the home of U.S. team sports. The centerpiece of Sundays coverage,fore xample,is the U.S. mens basketball teams game against France. While producers want the NBC Sports Network tof orm an identity as a home of U.S. team sports,the truth i s that NBC,NBC Sports a nd MSNBC are airing so much competition that they w ill lack clearly focused identities. The best way to keep track of their daytimes chedules is to keep checking NBCOlympics.com. A s it has in the past,the CNBC business network is positioned as the home of Olympic boxing,including womens boxing for the firstt ime. The competition will be focused weekdays on the h ours between the close of financial markets and the beginning of TV prime-time. B etween July 28 and Aug. 3,Bravo will air the O lympics tennis competition. The amount of hours a vailable to Spanish-speaking viewers through Telemundo are also being sharply increased,and then network promises a broaderl ook at the range of competitions than it has in the past. Still,swimming,basketball and soccer will be the sports the network concentratesu pon. Through cable and satell ite providers,NBC is also running speciality channels devoted to the basketball and s occer competitions. For the first time,the Olympics will also be presented in 3-D with a special channel available to viewers with this technical capability. With all that coverage on t elevision,NBC will be offering even more online. That represents a change in philosophy; the network o nce worried that making competitions available online could cut into the number of people who want to watch on television. Now NBCs leaders believe all of the online competition will compel viewers to want to watchm ore online. The NBC Olympics Live E xtra App gives fans a variety of options,including live streams of what is being shown on the TV networks. O nline channels will also be set up to offer coverage of every single Olympic competition taking place,and the Gold Zone will have rapidlymoving coverage of the days most compelling livee vents. To satisfy cable and satellite operators,NBC is requiring viewers to prove t hat they have a cable or satellite subscription in order to access the online options. This requires a username and password from the companies,so interested viewers would be advised to set those up before the gamess tart to avoid missing out.

That tops the $850 million in ad sales for the Beijing games in 2008 and is the biggest advertising haul ever for an Olympics,NBC said. Advertisers have plenty of options,since NBC Universal is showing some 5,535 hours of the Olympics on various networks and online. The $60 million in digital ad sales triples what the network earned four years ago, said Seth Winter,executive vice president of sales for the NBC Sports Group. The cost of advertising time per minute on NBCs prime-time broadcast has increased by less than 10 percent,Winter said. That telecast is where NBC gets its most money and biggest audience. As television audiences continue to fragment,the ability to reach a broad,family audience through special events like the Olympics or Academy Awards gets more valuable. Everyone who is on the air or wants to be on the air in the third quarter has to be on the Olympics,Winter said. If they want to reach the NBC tops $1 billion in Olympics ad sales

Continued from page 8B RELIGION S ALT LAKE CITY (AP Kody Brown and his four wives just want to live like any other family free from the threat of beingt ossed in prison. But in Utah,just claiming to have more than one wife is a third-degree felony punishable by a sentence ofu p to five years. The polygamous family, stars of the TLC show Sister Wives,has sued Utah and the county they fled from,hoping to per-s uade a federal judge to overturn the states bigamy l aw as unconstitutional. The case could potentially decriminalize a way ofl ife for tens of thousands of Mormon fundamentalists p racticing polygamy,most of whom live in Utah. The state,meanwhile,has p ublicly said it wont prosecute consenting adult polygamists unless there are other crimes involved,but insists the law doesnt over-r each. It is not protected under religious freedom because states have the right to regulate marriage,said PaulM urphy,spokesman for Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff. U tah County Attorney Jeff Buhman in May announced he closed hisc riminal investigation into the Browns and simultaneo usly adopted the same state policy. The county then moved t o have the lawsuit dismissed,claiming the B rowns no longer have standing since they arent subject to prosecution. Sister Wives family sues to challenge Utahs bigamy law

One day I sent him on an errand to the office,shut down the machinery and hada conference with the rest of t he students. I informed them that every time I caught anyone doing Donalds work for him,they would have an Ffor the day,and that after receivingt hree Fthey would get an Ffor the grading perio d. They could explain, assist or instruct,but they could do no hands-on workf or Donald. Donald managed to s queak by in his first year in shop,and was at the point in his second year where he had to do a lathe project. The requirements for allp rojects were the same. A proposal had to be submitted w hich included scale drawings,procedures,and an estimate of time and cost. D onald submitted a proposal for a 10-inch high by 1 0-inch diameter bowl. Various kinds of 3/4-inch thick hard woods would bec ut into 12-inch by 2-inch strips,smoothed and glued together in alternating colors a nd types which would form 12-inch squares. After these d ried,circles as large as the squares would permit,were drawn on each,and then cut out on the band saw.The circles were then stacked andg lued together with grains going in different directions. Ideally this would have resulted in a relatively uniform cylinder of various colored woods,but most of Donalds circles had flatt ires,and some closely resembled doughnuts with l arge bites taken out of them. Add to this the fact that his glue job left most circles out of line and you get a picture that is nowhere near ideal. T o this cylinder,a lathe plate was attached as near to the center of the base as pos-s ible. Then it was put on the lathe to begin the shaping process. The lathe would be turned on and speed would be increased as high as thew obble would allow,which in this case,was very slow. A roughing tool would be used and speed was increased as the outer shape of the bowl became morea nd more centered. As this process continued,finer cutt ing tools were used for smoothing and grooving. The inside of the bowl wasl ast to be cut. Then came the sanding,and as with the cutt ing tools,the rough sand paper was followed by finer and that was followed by steel wool. When the bowl was ready for a finish,alls urfaces were smooth as glass. T hroughout this process,I frequently heard Donald trying to get the other boys tod o some of his work. I cant,or I dont know h ow,orNo one will see you,he would say,but as instructed,the other boyst aught,gave suggestions,and assisted,but they made Donald do his own work. H is confidence grew as the shape of the bowl came m ore into focus. Soon,he couldnt wait to get it done. In the finishing phase,he came to me at least three times in every class periodt o get approval to apply the linseed oil finish. I would inspect his work and send him back to the lathe. Finally it was done. The shape was not exactly what he had originally proposedb ut it was beautiful and he was proud. W hen the grade cards came out,Donald opened his and with a quizzical look on his face,came to me and asked,Whats this? Whats what?I asked him. This,he said shoving his grade card in front of mea nd pointing at his grade. That,Donald,is an A I said with as much of a disinterested look as I could muster. But,buthe stammered. But what Donald?I asked. But I,I...he muttered, Why did I get an A? Donalds bowl was sitting o n a shelf above my desk where it was on display with other smaller projects. I pointed to it and said Thats why Donald. That bowl is perfect. Its beautiful. Youd id a great job and you deserved what you got.He w as smiling from ear to ear as he turned and said Wow! I never got an A before! D onald was slow and had been convinced from the t ime that he was very young that he was stupid; that he couldnt do anything right. He had been programmed to fail and had accepted failurea s the norm for his life. He needed two things. He h ad to be convinced that he could do some things well, and he could not be allowedt o quit. The results speak for themselves. When he said I c ant,I said You can.I simply would not allow him the option of failing. L ook in the mirror; what do you see? The person others say you are or the person G od wants you to be? Abraham Lincoln failed at e verything he did before becoming president. Thomas Edison failed hundreds of times before he succeeded. Failure is more of a mindsett han a fact. Failures simply eliminate wrong choices and bring us closer to success in whatever we do. If we let them.

Dont let failure stop you Guest Column F red Jeans RELIGIONBRIEFS The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN A ssociated PressEL PASO,Texas G eorge Jefferson was a bigot. A loudmouth. Rude. Obsessed with money. Arrogant. And yet he was one of the most enjoyable,b eloved characters in television history. Much of that credit belongs to Sherman Hemsley,the gifted charac-t er actor who gave life to the blustering black Harlem businessman on TheJ effersons,one of TVs longest running and most successful sitcoms par-t icularly noteworthy with its mostly black cast. T he Philadelphia-born Hemsley,who police said late Tuesday died at hish ome in El Paso,Texas,at age 74,first played George J efferson on the CBS show All in the Familybefore he was spun off onto The Jeffersons.The sitcom ran for 11 seasons from 1975 to1 985. With the gospel-style t heme song of Movinon Up,the hit show depicted the wealthy former neigh-b ors of Archie and Edith Bunker in Queens as they m ade their way on New Yorks Upper East Side. Hemsley and the Jeffersons ( Isabel Sanford played his wife) often dealt with contemporary issues of racism, but more frequently reveled in the sitcom archetype of as hort-tempered,opinionated patriarch trying,often unsuccessfully,to control his family. Hemsles feisty,diminut ive father with an exaggerated strut was a kind of b lack corollary to Archie Bunker a stubborn,high-s trung man who had a deep dislike for whites (his favorite word for them was honkies). Yet unlike the blue-collar Bunker,playedb y Carroll OConnor,he was a successful businessman who was as rich as he was crass. His wife,Weezie, was often his foil yet pro-v ided plenty of zingers as well. Despite the characters many faults money-driven,prejudiced,temperamental,a boor Hemsley managed to make the character endearing,part of the reason it stayed on the air for so long. Much like OConnors portrayal of Archie Bunker, deep down,Hemsles Jefferson loved his family, his friends (even the ones he relentlessly teased) and had a good heart. His performance was Emmy and Golden Globe nominated. He was a love of a guy and immensely talented, Norman Lear,producer of The Jeffersonsand All in the Family,said after learni ng of his death. El Paso police said the actor was found dead at a home where neighbors said hed lived for years,and that no foul playi s suspected. The actor had been ill and died of natural causes,so no autopsy will be performed, according to Irene Santiago,a manager at the El Paso coroners office. She did not e laborate. When the Jeffersons m oved in next door to the Bunkers,I wanted to deliver the George Jefferson who could stand up to Archie Bunker,Lear recalledT uesday. It took some weeks before I remembered having seen Sherman in Purlieon Broadway. Hemsley read for the part a nd the minute he opened his mouth he was George Jefferson,Lear said. Hemsley was smaller than OConnors Archie but he was every bit as strong as Archie,Lear said. Lenny Kravitz,whose mother,Roxie Roker, played Helen Willis on The Jeffersons,said,When I was a kid,Sherman would always take the time to hang out with me on set. We would listen to music and talk about it. He was very knowledgeable,and was a big rock nroll fan. He was an extraordinary human being that made a huge difference with his talent. I will miss him. Sherman Alexander H emsley was the son of a printing press-working father and a factory-working mother. He served in the Air Force and worked for eighty ears as a clerk for the U.S. Postal Service. Having studied acting as an adolescent at theP hiladelphia Academy of Dramatic Arts,he began acti ng in New York workshops and theater companies,i ncluding the Negro Ensemble Company. For years,he kept his job at the post office while acting at night,before transitioningt o acting full-time. He made his Broadway debut in 1970s Purlie,a musical adaptation of Ossie DavisJim Crow-era play Purlie Victorious. (Hemsley would later star in a 1981 made-for-TV version of Purlieas well.) It was while touring the show that Hemsley was approached by Lear about playing a character on the sitcom that would become All in the Family. Hemsley joined the show in 1973,immediately catapulting himself from an obscure theater actor to a hit character on the enormously popular show.Two years later,The Jeffersonswas spun off. Among the numerous All in the Familyspin-offs (Maude,Archie Bunkers Place, Hauser),The Jeffersonsran the longest. Hemsley made people love unlikeable George Jefferson MCT S herman Hemsley, seen in this 2004 photo, died T uesday at the age of 74.

While die-hard fans and dance fanatics will r espond on the opening weekend, ongoing competition from superheroes and cute cartoon characters may slow momentum in subse-q uent weeks. After dancing its way across Baltimore and New York City in previous iterations, Step Up moves toM iami, where homeboys Sean (Ryan Guzman) and E ddy (Misha Gabriel been best buds since toddler-h ood and now lead a local dance flash mob known as, well, The Mob, just to keep things simple. Together with their crew, includingc horeographers, visual artists and a DJ, the guys have been busting out surprise dance numbers all over Miami and shooting video to compete ina YouTube contest to win $1 million. Seans day job as a waiter at a luxury hotel helps support his dance habit and pay the rent on the house he shares with his single-mom sister (Megan Boone niece. When Emily Anderson (Kathryn McCormick up at the hotel owned by her father Bill (Peter Gallagher), a ruthless realestate developer for a summer of bartending while preparing to audition for a coveted spot with a hightoned local dance company, attraction inevitably sparks between the two. As it turns out, aloof Emily needs Seans help more than she suspects. Seems that the dance company director (Mia Michaels thinks Emily is a talented performer but wound a bit too tightly to be truly creative. So if she wants to make it onto the roster, Emily is going to need some new moves, which she figures Sean can help deliver once she discovers hes one of the motivators behind The Mob. After her video debut,a sexy number in a crowded, fancy restaurant, draws millions of hits online, Emilys brought on with the group as t hey plan their next outrageous mission. H owever theres one major obstacle looming overt he pairs romantic bliss and professional success: Emilys dad is determined to build a new luxury development after razing the mul-t iracial community where Sean lives and hangs out with other Mob members. Although Sean agrees to keep Emilys identity con-c ealed while she rehearses and performs with his crew, if word gets out, his street cred will be totally shot, which could complicate that business about winning the YouTube video contest. Emily has another idea, though, encouraging Sean and The Mob to stand up to her dads development plans with some proactive dance interventions. Much like hit-making music producers, Shankman and Gibgot have orchestrateda surprisingly winning series that takes promising filmmakers and performers and turns them into recognizable professionals, like directing alum John M. Chu and former man-candy dancer Channing Tatum. Making his feature-filmmaking debut, music-video and TVdirector Scott Speer acquits himself adequately, particularly since the movie is more akin to a long-form video project. Playwright and first-time screenwriter Amanda Brody plays it safe, leaving the pyrotechnics to the choreography team and sticking to the franchises proven dance-romance formula, which offers few surprises but delivers effectively. The attempt to add a modicum of social relevance to an essentially carefree entertainment vehicle by staging dance protests against the resort development is pretty mucha nonstarter, particularly since theres no indication that The Mobs illegal assemblies are attracting the least law-enforcement attention. Abercrombie & Fitch model Guzman looks every bit the metrosexual romantic lead, but also makes a credible partner for So You Think You Can Dance star McCormick. Fortunately, neither is called upon to stretch too far in the acting department and both are able to get by with good looks and flashy moves. Supporting cast-members are adequate if not outstanding, but its the choreographers, led by franchise vet Jamal Sims, who really put the shine on the production. Revolutions mix of choreography, contrasting m odern dance and streetstyle performance that incorp orates hip-hop, step, acrobatic moves and Cirque duS oleil-style aerial stunts, forms an energetic, constantly shifting mosaic. Several major set pieces, including the opening downtownM iami sequence centering around a parade of low-riders, help anchor significant plot developments, even if they add little narrativei mpetus. By now, however, 3-D dance performances are routine for the genre and with the exception of a few notable aerial tricks, Revolution doesnt offer many stylistic innovations, although the soundtrack featuring performances by Far East Movement (with an assist from Justin Bieber), M.I.A., M83, Diplo, Timbaland and J-Lo, is appropriately propulsive. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, July 27, 2012Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; movie listings; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 3 3 5 5 0 0 DIVERSIONS DearAbby: I have a son with two good friends. They are at myh ouse often and are really good boys. I enjoy them, and Im glad my son is friendlyw ith them. The problem is their mothers. Both thesew omen are receptive to playdate invites, but when I see them in social situa-t ions, they say very little to me and almost act as if they d ont know me. Even when they pick up their kids, talking to them is awkward, andt hey give the impression theyre always in a hurry. I think if your kids spend five hours at my house and I have fed them, I deserve a little face time at the very least. I find their behaviorr ude and would love to say something. Im just not sure h ow. What do you suggest? Playdate Etiquette DearPlaydate: I think y ou are expecting too much of these women. Because y our son is friendly with theirs does not guarantee that the friendship must e xtend to the parents. If the only thing you have in common with them is the fact that their boys spend time with your son, then it mayn ot be so much a matter of what you deserve but what they are comfortable with. If you want to be compensated for the snacks,t hen say so, but dont expect them to be paid for w ith friendship ... cause it aint gonna happen. DearAbby: I have been widowed for four years and have had the good fortune to meet someone special.I ll call him Jerry. My mother-in-law, whom I am very close to, is still grieving the loss of her son. She says it is hard for her to seeJ erry and me together. Does this mean I cant invite him to any family events? We are at the point in our relationship where I think it would be unkind to make him feel like he is not welcome. Jerry has been patient, loving and considerate of me and my kids. What do you think I should do? Doesnt Want To Hurt Her DearDoesnt: Your mother-in-law will ALWAYS grieve the loss of her son. The question is, is she willing to riskb ecoming distanced from you and the grandchildren? Talk to her about y our relationship with Jerry and explain that you still wouldl ike to be a part of her life, but that it will require her to accept the new man inY OURS. D earAbby: My daughter, Joanne, is 42 and lives at home with me.S hes attractive, friendly, well-liked and has a good j ob. She pays all her own bills. The problem is, she seems stuck in her life. She hasnt dated in years anda ppears content to just go to work and come home. W henever I try to encourage her to get out more, she says, It is what it is. Shesn ot shy. Shes outgoing, so I dont understand. I d love for her to be independent and have her own apartment. Sometimes s hell turn it around and ask, Do you WANTme to leave? Joanne doesnt seem to understand that Im con-c erned only for her future. She has no siblings, and I worry that when Im gone shell be alone. I want her to get out m ore, meet someone and eventually fall in love. H ow do I get through to her without nagging? Only Wants The Best For Her DearOnly: Your daughter has many positive attributes. H as it occurred to you that she may be perfectly happy with her life as it is and not looking for the kind of life you would like her toh ave? Worrying about her wont do either of you any good. Let the future work itself out. Theres an old proverb with much truth in it: Man plans; God laughs.

(APAfew years ago Dierks Bentley went hard against country music convention by releasing a rockinbluegrass-roots album. Hes decided to break the rulesa gain. This time around, Bentley is releasing a new four-song EPcalled Country & Cold Cans even while his last album continues to chart hit singles. Turns outB entley just wanted to have a little fun with his friends. Sometimes that should be the driving force in your decisions, you know? Bentley said. It doesnt always have tob e a business decision or well-thoughto ut plan. Just go out there, have fun, do it with some friends and put out some new tunes. Country & Cold Cans is out Aug. 21. The EPwill be a digital-only releasea vailable on iTunes initiallyBentley released his last album Home earlier this year and -1-5-0, his 10th No. 1 country single as both artist and songwriter, reached the top of the charts thisw eek. Its the third No. 1 from Home. Normally, competing music would be considered a hindrance to the success of that album. But in this case, Bentley welcomes the interruption in business asu sual. The music was written on the r oad, then recorded over a two-day period with his touring band and produced with Jaren Johnston, a member of The Cadillac Black Bentleys opening band on tour this year. T he music is meant to be loose and off the cuff. With songs like the title track, Grab a Beer and Back Porch, the aim is clear. Bentley said hes targeting the same k ind of kids curious about country music like he was as a teenager growing up in Arizona. s called Country & Cold Cans, Bentley said with a laugh.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, July 27, 2012 In honor of the big games in London,gather some good sports for competitions,kudos and cupcakesDivide players into teams of two. Start a one-minute timer. Pairs must get a shower cap onto one teammates head and cover the cap with shaving cream. Then the capless teammate,standing behind a tape or rope line a few feet away,tries to throw cheese puffs into the shaving cream. The team gets a point for every puff still on the cap when the minute is up. Slide an empty rectangular tissue box onto a belt by cutting slits into the boxs short sides. For the best game,remove one panel of the plastic film that covers the opening and insert seven Ping-Pong balls. Wearing the belt with the box at the back, each player has 30 seconds to try to make the balls bounce out of the box by shaking her body.The player gets a point for each ball that exits the box. Testers tip:To mix it up a bit,buy a few blue or green balls or color some with markers. Award double points for a green ball landed in a cup and triple points for a blue. Set plastic party cups half filled with water in three to five rows. Label the cups for scoring,with cups placed closest to the kids worth one point,and those farther away worth more. Set out a bucket of Ping-Pong balls. Each player gets 30 seconds to throw as many balls as possible into the cups. The player finishing with the highest score wins. Every athlete deserves a moment of glory.To make it happen,set up a simple awards podium (we used sturdy milk crates) and hand out homemade gold,silver and bronze medals. We made ours by painting the underside of a paper dessert plate with metallic paint,then gluing glitter around the rim and in a laurel pattern on the center. We added a smiley face with black glitter glue and stapled on a loop of r ibbon.T ip:W hen awarding the medals,pass around kazoos and have everyone join in a r ousing rendition of the national anthem. Sweeten the victory with these easy treats. Simply prepare a batch of your favorite cupcakes,ice them,then top them with a design of candy-coated chocolates, as shown. For a world-class finish,print our toppers (find them at familyfunmag. com),tape them to toothpicks,then insert one in each cupcake. To make the ring garland,trim a nd paint the rims of paper plates. Cut open every other loop to make a chain,taping the cuts closed with tape. Add string for hanging.By Stephanie Callahan,FamilyFun magazine Photos by David Roth,FamilyFun magazine
