By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Jeri Canale is running for the District 3 seat on the Highlands County Commission. When family and friends pushed her to enter the race, she told them she was interested, but she had to have a sign. Shortly afterwards she bought a ticket for a 50/50 drawing. As she put her money in the basket, she told people, All right, I never win, so if I do it means Im meant to run. She won. In fact, Canale served on the county commission before, from 1994 to 1998. I just think a little experience is a good thing right now. I am up to speed. I understand the budget process and know state statutes, she said. I know what Im getting into. She added that she has a sense of humor, which helps. In addition to elected office, Canale said she has served in a number of other positions that helped prepare her for office, including serving on the board of directors of the Florida Association of Counties, as a member Canale says she will draw on her experience C ANDIDA TE P ROFILE Jeri Canale is running for County Commission, District 3 Love those bugs Woman struck, killed while helping traffic accident victim 39-year-old Lori Ann McKenna called heroic caregiver By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Highlands County School Board meeting Thursday included a lengthy discussion regarding the school districts health insurance policy.

Eric Wilson, co-supervisor at the B&GC, stated that last years bash was a huge success. Last year was really good, we ran out of backpacks pretty early though ... We are looking to supply more this year, Wilson said. Chairman of the Back to School Bash Committee Robert Saffold is hoping to hand out packs to every student that attends the event but knows help is needed from the local community. Saffold and the committee needs approximately 300 backpacks to accommodate the students that are expected to attend the bash. One local business, Affinity Health Professionals, has already jumped on board and is currently collecting items to donate to the Back to School Bash.

Statler Financial, 803 U.S. 27 S, has made it their mission to help supply the Kindergarten Learning Centers teachers with needed items for the little ones in their classrooms. After learning about the shortage on school supplies from my daughter, Maggie (KLC physical education instructor), I wanted to be able to help out with school supplies for children in need, Philip Statler said. Statler contacted KLC principal Andrew Lethbridge to obtain a copy of the KLCs supply list. After purchasing the items it adds up to almost $30 per student. This is especially hard for parents that have multiple children in the household, Statler said. Statler Financial is accepting donations for the KLC throughout the month of August.

Continued on page 7A More and more people are moving to Sebring every day for exactly the same reason people have always lived here; its good govern-m ent, fine weather, schools, recreation and most of all its wonderful people. Sebring has come a long way in its 100 years of existence and will continue to do so by thel eadership of those elected and appointed to serve its best interest. Today, government is ever changing to meet the needs of the time we live in some good, some nots o good. We can be justly proud of Sebring and its people that have served it and those that will continue to serve in the years to come. This week we are taking a brief look at our city council, and invit-i ng you to a special city council reception during the Centennial Focus week. Save the date now for this special reception meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 16 beginning at 6p .m.; it will be held at the City Hall on South Commerce Avenue. This will be a terrific time to go and meet your elected officials if you have not already done so, tow itness history being made, and to have your say on issues that concern you as a Sebring resident. Your council wants to hear what is important to you; your feedbackh elps our local government body make the best decisions for our city. The first election in Sebring was held on July 1913. At that time, city residents elected a mayor, cityc ouncil of five members, a treasurer and a clerk. Only 15 votes were cast in that first election and J.H. Lopp became Sebrings first mayor. T he first council meeting confronted issues of sidewalks, paving of streets and taxes, which they soon found out no one wanted to pay. The very first ordinance passed by the new town councilw as a resolution offering a $5 reward for the arrest and conviction of anyone selling intoxicants. The need to establish such a law suggests that there were at thate arly date people in the town who did not share the same convictions. Everyone in town did not agree with George Sebrings anti-alcohol views, and there was rampant dis-o bedience of this ordinance. Although George Sebrings leadership was evident as the driving force for the quick progress of the new town, he never held publico ffice, preferring to stay in the background and be the guiding influence. Orvel Sebring, the son and partner of his father, did serve on the city council for several years. S ebring has been exceedingly fortunate in its choice of mayors o ver the years. By the first charter, t he term of office was one year, but w ith the revision in 1925 this was e xtended to two years, but the men w ho were elected have all done such a good job that each of them was re-elected as often as he would agree to serve. For the most part, the mayors, while acting as judges, were intent on maintaining a serene and happy community. Many fine citizens have served honorably in the city government. Ed Hasti served as city clerk at a difficult time durin g the Great Depression and World War II years, from 1933 until December 1945; Dan Stevenson, City of Sebrings first election was held in 1913 Centennial Notebook S ee SEBRING, page 6A

Obama surrenders to Americas enemies! Commentators on Fox News would opine its actually an Islamic saying he picked up in a madrassa in Indonesia. The prophet Mohammed talked about fear,it speaks to his Muslim leanings. Fox and Friends would lead the next morning with the question,Did Obama include a part of the Koran in his speech last night? Karl Marxs whole campaign was to eliminate completely obliterate fear! Now we have a president following in his footsteps!Rush Limbaugh would bellow.All his doppelgangers and dittoheads would repeat it on every corner of the Internet and talk radio:Fearless is Marxist! Those more moderate would just call him out of touch. Obama doesnt understand how Americans feel:there fearful of Obamacare! Mitt Romney would go on five networks to announce hes always been a big fan of fear. In America,the fear is the right height,hed declare. Saying we have nothing to fear is foreignsounding to a lot of Americans.Days later,video of Romney telling a crowd not to be afraid would come to light. His campaign would counter with another weather balloon about his VP pick. Paul Ryan? How about Ginny Thomas?would be the entire body of an email to Romney supporters. Internet message boards would speculate theres an Obama plot to criminalize negative emotions ... tied to fluoride in the water,of course. Mr. President, what are you trying to hide? Congressman Darrell Issa would launch an investigation into this alleged plot outlined on these said message boards. Sideshow Michele Bachmann would mutter about how fear is profoundly Christian and Obama with his contempt of fear has shown his contempt for Jesus ... and of course Israel. Obama wants to destroy Israel!Allen West would say its a form of slavery. John Boehner,wiping back tears,would proclaim,Fear is a job creator Mr. President why do you want to punish success? Suddenly fear would be a constitutional right. Barack Hussein Obama is trying to take away our god-given right to be afraid!e have nothing to fear? I fear our right to fear will be stripped away if Obama gets a second term. Yes,the party that bravely came out against empathy (a trait lacking in all sociopaths) when Obama admired it in Sonia Sotomayor,would come out in favor of fear. It would become their signature issue. AstroTurf busses would drop grassroots activists on the capitol lawn for the Million Phobics March. It would mainly consist of security personnel (pro-fear remember Palin proclaiming,Unlike Barack Obama were god-fearing Americans! SuperPAC funded T-shirts handed out at the rally would read,Im god-fearing not Mohammed-quoting! Inevitably there would be Democrats being forced to defend denouncing fear. Look,I think we can all agree fear is not helpful to Americans. No no,the president doesnt want to see it criminalized. He just said,however inartfully,we dont need it.That would be dubbed a gaffe by the 24-hour news cycle. Right-wing commentators would gasp,The administration all but admitted to their ambition of outlawing fear. e dont need it!?This is about freedom and governmental overreach! Nancy Pelosi would be asked to weigh in on the controversy. Shed say, This is not a debate about whos for fear and whos against fear this is about a struggling middle-class.The video clip would end up actually setting up several debate segments on cable news shows about whos for fear and whos against. To sum up:You have the right to be afraid! The Democrats want to take away that right! That is the choice this November! Tina Dupuy is the editor-in-chief of SoapBlox. Tina can be reached at tinadupuy@yahoo.com/. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Always the opposite of Obama is a tricky campaign platform Guest Column Tina Dupuy One of the things that frustrate me as a Christian is when people claim to be followers of Jesus buti gnore what He taught. These people will even go s o far as to twist the Bible to try to justify their ungodly beliefs. T his is troubling for a number of reasons. The f act they claim God supports their incorrect views means they are sending outt he wrong message,forcing others to go behind them and clean up the messes t hey make. Then there are those who are always looki ng for a chance to discredit the faith. They like to point to those who fail to follow Christs teachings (though they claim other-w ise) and tar all Christians with the same broad brush. Sadly,there are numerous examples of such Christians.One prominent one came to my attention this week. C harles and TeAndrea Wilson were slated to be m arried at the First Baptist Church in Crystal Springs, Miss. They had the rehearsal there the Thursday before the sched-u led ceremony,no problem. The next day,the day before they were to be married,Pastor Stan Weatherford broke then ews to them. Some parishioners came to him,complaining. One news account said they threatened to fire him if he chose to go through with the ceremony. Why were they complaining? What terrible thing had this couple done that so offended these church members? Apparently,it wasnt what thed done but what they were you see,the Wilsons are black. The church there is predominantly white and,according to the article I read at news.yahoo.com,there hadnt ever been a black wedding at the building since the church was founded in 1883. According to another article at www.cnn.com, Weatherford apparently gave in to the unhappy members to avoid controversy.He married the couple at another nearby church. The pastor really miscalculated the no controversy thing. Members of the community and congregation reacted to the situation with dismay and outrage. Both the articles I read on t he story had thousands of comments about the situation,most of them in sup-p ort of the couple. The thudding sound y oure hearing is me hitting my head against a wall. What is wrong with thep eople who objected? Read your Bible. Go from Genesis to R evelation. You will discover that there is nothing t here that excuses treating people differently because of the color of their skin. Zip. Zero. Nada. You have to perform some interestingt extual gymnastics to justify believing otherwise. Then there is Weatherford,who for whatever reason didnt seek to teach this small group of members better but cavedi n to their demands instead. Instead of trying to minim ize controversy (and that worked out so well) he shouldve called them out even if it meant his job. Sometimes you gotta take as tand and pay the price. Jesus did. And finally,there may be some that want to take me to task for judgingthesep eople. No church is perfect,look at the church of Corinth in the Bible. They had horrible problems but were still Gods church, they might say. Its not wrong for us to call sin what it is. And make no mistake; the attitude of that small group of members is sinful. As to the Corinthian church yes,they had issues. And the apostle Paul had no problem with telling them they were wrong and had to shape up. Im not an apostle. Im just a Christian who tries to shine her light. And part of that is teaching the truth. And the truth is,Jesus wouldve married that couple and told the objectors to learn His way more perfectly. For their sakes,I hope they do. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by email at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com.

This is the firstt ime in its 118-year history the organization has chosen a woman to lead it. Benton already made history by being the first woman in Florida elected sheriff in hero wn right,and then being reelected. She is currently runn ing for a third term. Under Bentons leadership, the Highlands County SheriffsO ffice has developed a high level of professionalism. S he led the effort in gaining state accreditation by the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission for the jail in February of 2011, and the Sheriffs Office itself on June 30,2011 by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement. O n her watch,emergency dispatchers from the countys many agencies were consolidated into one unit for faster responses. Perhaps even more import ant,Benton is as motivated to prevent crime and deal with d ifficult social issues. Her approach has been one of involving the community. C hildren,in particular,are a main focus. She created the S pecial Victims Unit,and has been working with the school board on strategies to deal with student truancy. More than once she has warned that t odays truant is tomorros inmate. One of Bentons frustrations,she has said in the past,is state legislation that worksa gainst local authorities trying to deal with the truancy problem. Students have to be absent from school so long before measures may be taken thatn egative habits set in. The laws as written allow parents to escape accountability. As president of the FSA,she now has a chance to bring more attention to this vital issue. O n Friday morning she explained how excited she is a bout the future. One of the main functions of the FSA is providing profes-s ional leadership and collective ability to impact crime,she s aid,adding that individual sheriffs are more and more pooling resources,expertise and equipment and working together on larger initiatives, l ike fighting pill mills,and sexual predators online. W hile women have done m uch to prove they are capable,inventive and as good atl eading as men,in a male dominated world such as law enforcement a womans ability h as been a hard sell. What makes Benton special is that she has proven her worth a nd gained respect through her actions. As president of the FSA her voice will be heard,and heri deas considered. When you think about how small Highlands County is,c ompared to Miami-Dade, Broward or Duval counties for instance,it is especially grati-f ying when our officials are recognized for their leadership statewide. Congratulations Sheriff, youve done us all proud. Congratulations to Sheriff Benton It is always a pleasure to acknowledge when a public figure has done well. Even more so when a public figure is honored by peers.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunORLANDO The A merican Red Cross launched its official H urricane App Wednesday, putting lifesaving information right in the hands of people who live in or who visit hurricane prone areas. T his free app is the second in a series to be created by the American Red Cross, the nations leader in emergency preparedness, for use on bothi Phone and Android platforms.

For 29 years, NNO has been bringing residents out of their houses and into theirs treets for fun and fighting back. Highlands County Sheriffs Office is gearing up for this years NNO, which will be held on Tuesday. N ell Hays, HCSO public i nformation officer, is once again coordinating the event that will be held in various locations around the county. e have seven locations t his year. The idea behind National Night Out is to get people out of their homes, turn their porch lights on and take back their streets, Hayse xplained. The NNO event has been taking place in the county for several years; it was first began in the late 1990s butt ook a long hiatus. According to Hays, NNO has occurred in Highlands County for the past four years. Two challenges arise, however, with planning the NNOe vent for Hays. Our problem is we are seasonal. There arent a whole lot of people here in August but we still want to have the event the same nighta s the national organization does. It is important that we (HCSO ple that are in these communities in the off-season. They have been our eyes and willc ontinue to be even when the w inter folks return, Hays said. The other issue Hays has run into with NNO is a monetary one. NNO is nationallys ponsored by Target stores. s a challenge because we dont have a Target ... Ive reached out to the closest stores but they haventr esponded yet. So we (HCSO which is fine. This is something that I budget for and believe in; thes heriff believes in it too, Hays said. NNO will take place in seven communities throughout Highlands County. (Hays hopes to continue to expandt he number of communities i n the upcoming years.) The NNO event will offer residents a number of activities right outside their doors. e will be having food a vailable; hot dog, chips and beverages. Therell be cooks at each of the locations as well as shows and K-9 demonstrations. We want the residents to meet some of the sheriffs office staff that they may not be familiar with. We just want to show thanks to thep eople that have been here, Hays said. The events will begin simultaneously in each of the communities at 6 p.m. For more information on N NO visit www.natw.org/. National Night Out brings residents, law enforcement together Special to the News-SunT wenty-two youngsters from Highlands County were escorted to the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch in Inglis by School Resource Officers for a week of adventure, activity and fun.T he camp hosts boys and girls from ages 10-15 from a round the state at no cost to parents except for the physical exam required for acceptance.

New Hurricane App brings Red Cross safety info to smart phones B y SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Council members will revisit a couple of tabled items Tuesday evening during the first monthly council meeting. The long-discussed special events manual, w hich was tabled during the July 3 meeting, will make its way back on the agenda for c ouncil members to take action. The previous discussion of the special events manual suggested that council wantedt he assistant city administrator to act as special events coordinator. The council also a greed at the July 3 meeting that the application fee would be set at $25 per day. The consensus was that the City would assume t he monetary responsibility for the first $500 of services provided for the event ( police, public works, etc.) and the event organizer would then be responsible for any additional cost exceeding $500. C ity Administrator Scott Noethlich will provide council with all upcoming events s cheduled in the downtown area through the spring and seek guidance on what to do with those events. The Circle Park tree discussion will also be brought back to the council. Followingt he July 17 meeting, a Circle Park Tree Committee was created to discuss the future o f the park. At a recent meeting, the committee voted to recommend to council to place one largel ive oak in the bare section between South Ridgewood and West Center. The committee a lso suggested to leave an open space between Ridgewood and Commerce as an alternate stage set-up are during special e vents on the Circle.

Board member Andy Tuck stated his concerns regarding the new policy and the money it would cost the dis-t rict. I was under the impression that last year we said werent going to spend any more money on insurance this year. We need to get theb est plan we can get for the same amount of money w eve been spending, Tuck said. The CIGNAemployees p resented the board and the full room of attendees with t he newly polished policy for approval. According to CIGNArepresentatives, the only real change to the policy is the amount of thed eductible. CIGNAalso followed the b oards recommendation to find a way to help the employees afford theird eductibles and insurance premiums. K indergarten Learning Center principal Andrew Lethbridge addressed theb oard with the Insurance Committees decision to recommend a 50/50 plan. I think anytime youre in the budget crisis that were i n, you look at everything. We have some hurting people out there. We cut benefits by about 30 percent. Through that we had a lot of peoplet hat were greatly affected think that most of these plans t hat work well, they have about a 50 percent gap between the deductible and the fund balance. This (new policy) would get us there. I know that its money, I know that we have a limited a mount. We were trying to be conservative. I know that we as an insurance committeen ever understood Mr. Tucks position that there will never b e an increase to insurance anymore. We did hear that last year and thats why wec ame forward with the plan. That was never an understanding of the committee n or were we acting on that preference, Lethbridge state d. Im really thinking of our employees as a group, as a whole. Instead of a $1,750 gap, its down to a $1,000 gap. I think thats significant.I think the employees are going to appreciate that. The total cost for the CIGNAinsurance renewal a nd policy is $485,000, according to the Insurance Committee. The HCSB also approved t he implementation of an E. O. Douglass School Historical Monument. Former E.O. Douglass students Robert Saffold and Al Joe Hinson spoke to the board about what it means to h ave the monument placed under the old oak tree on thec ampus. ed like to have it under t he Tree of Knowledge, Saffold explained. We want the school board to be a part o f placing something there that helps us to never forget t he principals and students t hat were part of that school.

Arequest for the naming of Lake Placid High Schools g ymnasium after former student and basketball star M alcolm Bill Ross was also approved unanimously by the board Thursday night.

C M Y K and audience participation, the council made its decision. Only Deputy Mayor B renda Gray and Councilor Parke Sutherland spoke to the issue directly. Neither Terry Heston nor Paul Miller spoke. G ray said she would be voting in favor of the contract, partly because she represents the Southside of the city and her constituents had urged the change. She alsop ointed to the more than $2 million the city would save in f our years. Ultimately, she said, the most important point was that, Citizensw alk out their door and feel safe doing it. S utherland, too, referred to the financial savings as being an important part of his decision. Sutherland asked the most q uestions during the presentations, seeking answers to q uestions and worries that city residents brought him. For example, he asked them ayor of Fort Meade if the city felt it had lost a sense of i dentity. The mayor replied that beyond having patrol cars without the city logot here was no change. Benton presented her proposal, going over it point by p oint. For example, she told the police officers present t hat every one of them would have a job, even those who are not hired to fill the 16 Avon Park positions. Applicants would have tot ake the standard psychological tests required by statute and have a background check, but she was holding additional positions open so there were enough for all of the departments 22 sworno fficers. Initially, the former police o fficers would have to serve elsewhere in the county, she said, as sheriff deputies have to be familiar with the entire c ounty. The deputies assigned to within city limits would be a permanent prese nce. Coverage of the city would e qual and surpass what the APPD can provide, Benton said, because the HCSO has the infrastructure to absorb the transition and would bep roviding the change of command supervision, all at the sheriffs cost. Anorthern district of the county, from Schumacher Road north, will have its headquarters at the APPDb uilding on Pleasant Street. Thats where the citys s aving is, Benton said. We assume all of the supervision management. Benton introduced the c hain of command to the audience, including the sergeant (Manuel Gonzalez l ieutenant (Gasper Garcia and captain (Randy Labelle, h imself a former Avon Park police officer) who would be working in the city. Booker Johnson will be the major overseeing theA von Park unit. Mark Schrader, as chief deputy, will also be available to the city residents. At least four of those named are residents of the Avon Park area. Benton promised open a ccess to the HCSO at all times.

Canale said she was voted Woman of the Year for the Sebring Business and P rofessional WomansClub, received the Presidents Award from the WomensR epublican Club Federated, and was inducted into the Realtors Hall of Fame in 2 010. Her background in real e state has given her a detailed understanding of some of the countys thorniest problems, she said, like the high rate of foreclo-s ures. Canale added, however, that property is still a bargain in Highlands County compared with the rest of the state. That is something that should be used to drawp eople here, she said. We are the affordable Florida. She added that tourism is a n important part of the economy. We can take a dvantage of the tourist dollars to bring in events that will bring in more tourists. F inancial problems still loom large for the county. S he warns, we have to say no to people we didnt say no to before. We have to setg oals; if you dont focus well never reach them. Canale believes one of h er strengths is that she likes to do research and is g ood at digging out facts. I like to look at the whole picture and get to the bottom, hear the whole story, she said. S he strongly supports the Sunshine Laws. People are the major stakeholder and must be kept informed, she said. We want to be above board.

She doesnt understand, for example, why people should have to p ay for the right to work with an occupational l icense. The county, however, d oes have to do more to bring business to the county, s he said. Only 15 building permits have been pulled since January, Canale said. We have to be aware of that. S he suggests developing a one stop concierge servicet hat would walk new businesses through their start-upp rocess. Canale has a sense of urgency as well as possibility.

Rick Scott shot back Saturday at opponents who have sued and criticized his conservative agenda and was cheered by an audience who supports his efforts to drug test welfare recipients, strip teachers of tenure and make Florida more business friendly. Scott was a big hit addressing a gathering organized by the conservative RedState blog, drawing laughs several times as he made fun of people who oppose his policies. The governor whose approval rating was 36 percent in a poll released last week clearly was in front of a friendly crowd and he received a standing ovation when he wrapped the 24minute speech. If you do conservative things in Florida, now you get sued, Scott said, adding he then gets criticized for spending money on lawyers to defend the laws. After they sue you ... then they say Why are you wasting state dollars?Because its the right thing to do. Thats why youre doing it. Scott has been sued over laws that require drug testing for welfare recipients, create stricter voter registration rules, prevent doctors from asking patients about gun ownership, force state workers to contribute to their pension plans and more. He was also sued for ordering a purge of voter rolls to make sure non-citizens cant vote. Opponents said people who do have the legal right to vote were also being removed for the lists. ere going to have honest, fair elections. If youve passed away, you dont get to continue to vote, Scott said to laughter. If you have the right to be here, but youre not a U.S. citizen theyd never allow you to vote in Spain or Italy why would you have a right to vote here? You dont. You never did and youre not going to. He also expressed disbelief that anyone would oppose Floridas law to drug test people on welfare. Afederal judge has blocked implementation of the law. Gov. Scott a hit at conservative meet

C M Y K B reakfast on the first day a t stroke rehab. T hat was a chore. M y face doesnt work right, the right side droops, and my mouth doesnt close all the way on that side. I tend to drool. Well, most p eople think reporters drool anyhow, so when I slur out t hat I am a journalist, they just nod knowingly. No, not the main stream media who has perfected spin. But the main street m edia. I am a real journalist who tries to chronicle events a s they happen. Neutral, as m uch as I can, and centered away from each side. I take pride when someone says, ou covered that fairly I am the local government w atchdog, on guard for graft and corruption, and a champion for free speech, even f or idiots. My goal is to give open access to everything government does, especially when the public would rather w atch Swamp People. B esides, who else is going to dig through the mayors g arbage? They tell me my brain is still trying to make new paths for what was routine, so that simple things, like not drooling, does not work like it is supposed to do. The whole right side of m y body is drooping now. Right leg, right arm. Nothing is working. The stroke was caused by a blood clot and 6.37 millimeters of my brain died because of a lack ofo xygen. Hey, seems like a cruel t wist of fate. They say every time you drink alcohol you can kill brain cells. Apparently I hadnt killed the key ones when I was y oung. Not for a lack of trying, you understand. The key ones decided they would w ait until I was 46 and party l ike rock stars. Luckily, only a few thousand were in the Conga line when they went o ver the cliff. T he small kill zone just happens to be in the area w here the left side of the brain communicates with the spinal fibers for right side motor control. Near the brain stem, but not in it. I could dot he whole technical thing, b ut you can look it up on the Internet when you can take a m oment from Facebook and stealing music. One thing I can do is the J ohn Belushi thing with my eyebrows. With the droop, t he right brow hangs lower and the left one looks like it can move a foot. W hile I was trying to keep the scrambled eggs from e scaping, I decided I would use the new skill to do the Spock look. You know the one. Raise one brow and say Fascinating. I find that if you can control the drool and not speak a whole lot, people think you are a genius. I had just finished my e ggs and was working the toast when my roommate started making noises like he was in pain. He did that a lot. The toast was right. It is h ard to get toast right. Not too burnt, not too soggy. Toast is an art and somewhere in the bowels of this place there was a toast artist. I was trying to ignore other people at the moment and trying to enjoy the toasta nd thinking about where the call button was in case then eighbor needed help behind t he curtain that separated us. Hey, I know its mean, but I didnt want to talk to anyone for awhile. Astroke does thatt o you. Besides, he had quit and I could hear him eating, so I went back to selfabsorption. There was warm tea, so I d ecided to make some. The water was warm, not hot like advertised, but hey, Im not picky. I was trying to lean back and look grown up with a warm, albeit weak, beverage in my left hand. You know, like in the TVcommercials, and I was working the eyebrow, when the nurse (yep, that one) came in and opened the curtains between me and the neighbor. Got to remember to order that hit man. My neighbor was in just t he hospital gown. You know i t. It covers your front but your rear hangs out the open back. His face was turned right at me and his eyes we r e half opened. He was sort of short and the gown hung down past hisk nees about six inches above his bright yellow socks. I smiled, trying to be sociable, and sipped more tea, trying to look important.I raised the eyebrow on cue. He smiled back, moaned and mumbled softly like he was trying to say something I was just about to say good morning when he slipped the urinal out from under his gown. He sat it on his table next to his tray and began to eat again. I crossed tea off my lunc h m enu. Ed Baldridge is a News-Sun s taff writer.

C M Y K Dear Abby: Im becomi ng increasingly concerned about my wife,raci,and her influence over our 3year-old son,Grant.I love having a son,as does Traci, although she always wanted a little girl. Unfortunately, we havent been able to have another child,and my wifes focus on our son appears to be somewhat skewed. Over the last few months, Traci has been buying Grant more and more feminine clothing. Im OK with a pink shirt now and then,but lately it has gotten out of hand. She has been close to dressing Grant in drag. My wife says not to take it so seriously,but it bothers me when people tell us we havea lovely little girl. Im worried that what my wife is doing will have an adverse effect on my son, but at the same time I need to know if Im overreacting. Its a Boy! Dear Its a Boy!: My experts tell me that there is no data that demonstrates what your wife is doing will cause gender confusion in your son. Whats important is that you talk to her and express your concerns privately.Your little boy is at an age where he can sense stress in your marriage,and that could cause him problems later on. More important than what clothes hes wearing is decreasing the level of stress on the boy. Dear Abby: Im dating a man who is genuine,considerate,thoughtful,humble, responsible,committed to his family,and we have great physical chemistry. Unfortunately,there is no intellectual/social connection. We have never had an intellectually stimulating conversation,and Im not sure hes even someone I would have picked to be friends with,although we do share interests in the outdoors and our faith. I feel emotionally secure with him and keep wondering if Im being overly critical or choosing to stay in a relationship out of fear of not finding someone better in time to start a family. (Im in my early 30s.) Please advise. Indecisive in Pleasanton,Calif. Dear Indecisive: To be frank,no one person has verything.If intellectual stimulation is the quality thats most important to you, then the man you have been dating isnt the one for you. The fine qualities you listed would weigh heavily in his favor with many women. W hat you must ask yourself is whether or not you can be with him and find intellectual stimulation elsewhere when you feel you need it. Dear Abby: I have four grown children between the ages of 21 and 25. For years I had a career,supported them financially and put them through college and trade schools. I remarried last January. My youngest daughter now says my kids are no longer No. 1 in my life and she will no longer speak to me. I told her my husband and all my children will always be No.1 just in a different way. Shes having a baby soon and hasnt included me in her life since January. Mind you,the baby is from a drug cartel man,they both have felonies,and she recently married her high school sweetheart. Im torn between getting on with my life or trying to reach out to her with hugs and kisses every now and then via snail mail. She has blocked me on Facebook and changed her cellphone number. Any suggestions? Torn in Tucson Dear Torn: Yes. Get on with your life. On her birthday and at Christmas send cards to let her know you love her and are thinking of her. When she needs you for something,I guarantee she'll contact you. Until then, dont hold your breath. D ear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips.

C M Y K By JOCELYN NOVECK A P National WriterN EW YORK Only 11 years after her death,Elton John sang his ode to Marilyn Monroe. And I would have liked to have known you,butI was just a kid,went the lyrics. Your candle burned out long before your legende ver did. What John didnt know was how much truer hisw ords would ring a few decades later. M onroe passed away a half-century ago today,a murky death that remainso ne of Hollywoods most tantalizing mysteries. But l ook around:Her legend lives on,more vibrantly than ever. In a development this fiercely ambitious actress surely would have appreciat-e d,this 1950s bombshell has become a 21st-century p op culture phenomenon. Just flip through a celebrity magazine:Some of-the-m oment young starlet or pop singer will be channeling (or o utright appropriating) those platinum locks,the bright red lips,moist and slightly p arted,and that joyously, almost defiantly curvy figure,sheathed in something skin-tight and glamorous. Was that Marilyn on the r ed carpet at last years Teen Choice Awards? No,it was Taylor Swift,wearing a white halter-style dress just like Marilyns in The SevenY ear Itch,in which the actress stood atop a subway g rate and let the breeze of a passing train lift her skirts.( Oh,and that dress? It sold at auction last year for a mind-boggling $5.6 million, including commission.) Was that Marilyn in the D olce & Gabbana ad a while back? No,it was Scarlett Johansson,all white-blonde hair and ruby lips. And there was Charlize Theron in aD ior ad last year,meeting up with the real Marilyn,not to mention Marlene Dietrich and Grace Kelly,via CGI. Magazine spreads have featured Nicole Kidman, Lindsay Lohan,Rihanna, Michelle Williams,Viola Davis and others having their Marilyn moment. Madonna,of course,has famously appropriated Monroes look into her image. So have singers Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani. In June,on what would have been Marilyns 86th birthday,Lady Gaga tweeted Happy Birthday Marilyn Thell never take our blonde hair and lipstick,along with a picture of herself,Monroe-like. Nicki Minaj says shes obsessed with Marilyn Monroe. On the big screen,actress Williams earned an Oscar nomination for her moving portrayal of Monroe in My Week With Marilyn.And one of TVs most popular new shows is Smashon NBC,which follows a Broadway musical based on Marilyns life,with two actresses competing to play her. Heck,theres even been a giant Marilyn traversing the country:A 26-foot-tall, 34,000-pound statue of the actress,white dress billowing and undies showing,by artist Seward Johnson,now resting in Palm Springs, Calif. And there are plans for much more thanks to the purchase in late 2010 of Monroes estate,which includes her image,by Authentic Brands Group and its partner,NECA. The compans CEO,Jamie Salter,s ays he aims to upgrade the Marilyn brand by moving a way from cheap souvenirs and developing Marilynthemed cosmetic lines,spas and salons,sportswear, swimwear,footwear,hand-b ags and more. There are even plans for wait for it the inevitable Marilyn Monroe reality show,in which young women wouldc ompete to become a new Hollywood icon. But just what is the secret of Marilyns enduring appeal? It depends on whom you ask and thats fitting, really,because Marilyn, more than other iconic celebrities,was different things to different people. There was,most simply, Marilyn the actress a Marilyn that often got lost in all the hype,despite her desperate aspirations to be taken seriously. Film historian Leonard Maltin laments that many people know Marilyn as an image and an icon, but not as an actress. Monroe showed off her dramatic chops in The Misfits,for example,and Bus Stop.But she is probably best remembered for her delightful comic turns in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes as the gold-digging Lorelei Lee who sang Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friendin that classic pink gown; as the sensuous but ditzy Girl in The Seven Year Itch; and as sexy band singer Sugar Kane in Some Like it Hot. Marilyn just leaps off the screen,says Maltin. She has a luminosity that transcends everything else. S till,an entire younger generation is enamored of h er for something completely different,says Brandon Holley,editor of Lucky magazine,which draws women in their 20s and 30s. I think most women under 40 havent seen her movies,Holley says. For them,shes a style type the ultimate hourglass fig-u re. And a lot of women identify with that. Christopher Nickens agrees. Marilyn was the epitome of a certain kind of feminine ideal,says the coauthor of the recently released Marilyn in Fashion,a rare look at Monroes influence in that field. Her key fashion legacy, he says,was to bring bodyconscious clothes into everyday life. Though she wasnt seen as a fashion icon during her lifetime,Nickens thinks Marilyn shared something with other style icons like Jackie Kennedy,Grace Kelly,and AudreyHepburn. They didnt follow trends, he says. Its about knowing yourself and what works for you,and having that confidence. Confidence isnt necessarily something one associates with Monroe,of course. In that Elton John song, Candle in the Wind,shesa beautiful innocent victimized by a terrible Hollywood machine people who whispered into your brain and set you on the treadmilland made you change your name. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, August 5, 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.

For a while,that is, until her demons took over. On the 50th anniversary o f her death,heres a look at five of her most memorable film performances,the ones that stand out over her prolific but short career:Some Like It Hot (1959This was the first title t hat came to mind when I began pondering this list. M aybe because its the best film she was ever in theB illy Wilder classic is listed as the greatest comedy ever by the American Film Institute but also,the role of Sugar KaneK owalczyk is just so quintessentially her.Monroe is totally magnetic,with innocence and sexuality in equal measure. As the leads inger of an all-girl orchestra,she gets to sing,dance, play the ukulele and show off her comic timing. Monroe finds a tricky balance between her otherworldly looks and a downto earth charm,and plays beautifully off Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953D escribing her performance as gold-digging L orelei Lee as iconic would not be hyperbole. Her rendition of Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friendremains so enduring,it inspiredM adonnas Material Girl video,down to the blonde w aves,candy-colored pink dress,admiring back-up dancers and tightly struc-t ured choreography. Monroe actually gets seco nd billing behind Jane Russell in Howard Hawks musical comedy,based on t he Broadway show about a couple of showgirls and best friends who travel to Paris,run into misadventures and revel in all thea ttention thrown their way.The Seven Year Itch (1955H eres Monroe again at the center of one of films m ost famous images:standing over a New York Citys ubway grate,letting the wind from a passing train send her ivory,pleated halter dress billowing all around her. (The dress itselfs old at auction last year for a whopping $5.6 million, including commission.) But the whole performance is a great example of her screenp resence in a nutshell: naive,sweet,beguiling and irresistible. Shes such an idealized incarnation of classic female allure,shes known only as The Girl. Working for the first time with Wilder (who famously had difficulty with her), based on the George A xelrod play,Monroe plays the sexy upstairs neighbor who bewitches Tom Ewellsc haracter while his family is away for the summer. Bus Stop (1956A rare opportunity for Monroe to show some dram atic ability. But really, everything she can do is on display here:JoshuaL ogans film,based on the William Inge play,offers t he full range of Monroes abilities. She stars as Cherie thats pronounced Sher-EE,not Cherry a lousy saloon singer toiling away in Phoenix until s he can find a way to get to Hollywood. Yes,her A rkansas accent grates and if were being honest, the way overzealous cowboy Don Murray carries her off and forces her into ane ngagement would merit a restraining order now.The Misfits (1961A poignant pop culture time capsule:This is not justM onroes final film but Clark Gables,too. Co-star Montgomery Clift would be dead a few years later. Monroes then-husband,p laywright Arthur Miller, wrote the script for her to give her a meatier role. But by all accounts,alcohol and pills made her an absolutem ess and she was frequently late to John Hustons set. Given that her newly divorced character is drunk most of the time,along with the lost souls with whom she seeks solace in the Nevada desert,its hard to tell where the performance ends and real life begins.

C M Y K NASHVILLE,Tenn. (AP The members of country duo Love and Theft view the last few years as addition by subtraction. First,they lost their record label. Then Brian Bandas,the third member of their trio, quit. But with a new deal with Sony Music Nashville imprint RCA Nashville and a single chugging up the charts,Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles love their new lives. re both on the same page,Liles said. Wre way closer friends than either of us were with Brian. We musically have the same influences. We have the same goals and visions with what we want to do with our band. And lets be honest, Gunderson joked,it doesnt take a genius to realize that if you split money two ways instead of three ways,you make more money. You cant blame Gunderson,27,and Liles,28, for feeling nervous upon the release of their self-titled second album,which came out last week. Theve been to this point before and had everything fall apart twice. Originally signed by Disney Music Group to Carolwood Records,that imprint was shuttered just a few months after the release of their debut album,orld Wide Open.They moved to Disnes Lyric Street,which was already home to another trio you might have heard of, Rascal Flatts. That label closed in 2010,leaving the band to start over from scratch. They didnt even have the rights to re-record their own music. Executives at Sony had looked closely at the band early on and were again interested in signing a deal last year. But on the day the offer came through,Bandas called Gunderson and Liles and told them he was quitting. They werent about to give up,though,and tried to convince label executives they were still viable as a duo. I think when you hear Stephens and Erics voices together thats the answer right there,Sony Music Nashville President and CEO Gary Overton said. When Overton first heard the groups work as a trio,he said he liked the music but didnt know who was singing what part. As a duo,Liles and Gunderson still trade off on vocals sometimes midsong but there was something more distinctive about Love and Thefts newest incarnation. They love to perform, Overton said. And I talked to our radio staff here and they said they checked them out at radio and radio loves them. But really it just comes down to that music piece. I spent a little time with those guys andI told them I dont care if youre a duo or a trio.

The plants and animals that maket heir homes in different environments are adapted to their specific habitat. Aquatice nvironments such as swamps, marshes,rivers, streams,lakes and ponds support plants and animals that are uniquet o their watery world. The plants in a wet ecosystem provide oxygen,shelter and foodf or the animals that live there. There are three different types of wetland plants including emergents,floatingp lants and submergents. All of these plants are important components to t he ecosystem. Emergents are plants that grow in the water but pierce the surfaces o that they are exposed to air. Pickerel weed is an example of an e mergent plant. This perennial plant can reach heights of over three feet out of the water. The leaves are shiny,green and lance shaped. The flower is a purplish color and ist ubular in form. Poking out of the water allows emergents to photosynthesize more efficiently as well as reproduce. Generally these typeso f plants are pollinated by wind or insects. The portion of the plant that is under water provides habitats for various micro and macro invertebrates,which are food for largers pecies of wildlife such as fish. Floating plants have adapted so that their leaves float on the surface of the water. These plants can be free-floating or anchored to the bot-t om of the water body. Regardless of the type of floating plants,all provide food and habitat for fish and wildlife. The roots of floatingleaved plants provide a stable sur-f ace for successful fish spawning. When these aquatic plants die,they significantly contribute to the sedi-m ent,often making the water body shallower and nutrient rich. American lotus is an example of a floating plant. Mostly known for its large,beautiful blooms,the seedp ods are often sold as ornamental items. The flowers are approximately six inches wide and appear to bea luminescent yellow bloom floating on the water. G rowing underneath the waters surface are the submergents. Most of these plants are anchored to the bottom of the water body by roots, however some are actually freef loating under the water with no roots. Coontail is actually a free floating submersed plant that has f eathery leaves which are arranged in whorls on the stem giving it the look of a raccoons tail,which ish ow it got its name. Coontail does produce flowers,but they are so s mall that usually they are not seen. All submersed plants provide habitats for the smaller species that livei n the water. These are consumed by fish and other wildlife. Once the p lant dies,their decomposition by bacteria and fungi provides food for other aquatic species. Many animals inhabit the wet areas of our planet. Dragonflies relyo n plants that grow in wet areas. Although the dragonfly lives its adult life on land,while in the larv al stage it is completely aquatic. The female lays her eggs in the water. The eggs hatch into then ymphal stage,which have a special appendage on their head used to s pear small fish. These nymphs are predators from the time they hatch from the eggs. These interestingi nsects actually go through a metamorphosis process where they grow t heir wings. Most of the life of a dragonfly is spent in the larva stage, which can be up to three years. Once the creature reaches adulthood,it lives only a few weeks. A nimals including fish,amphibians,reptiles,birds and mammals can all be found in the wet ecosystems.

C M Y K WASHINGTON (AP Employers added 163,000 jobs in July after three monthso f sluggish hiring,a pleasant surprise that could signal the U.S. economy may be resilient enough to shake off a midyear slump. The economy has added an average of 151,000 jobs am onth this year,although thats not been enough to d rive down the unemployment rate,which ticked up to 8.3 percent from 8.2 percent in June. The Labor Departments July employ-m ent report did little to settle the political debate about the economy,with Obama administration officials and Gov. Mitt Romney seizing on thel atest data to bolster their campaigns with less than four months to go until Election Day. Before Fridays report, economists were increasingly worried that a slowdown in hiring and growth from April through June could get worse and develop into something more long-lasting. Now they are breathing a little easier. After a string of disappointing economic reports ... well certainly take it,said James Marple,senior economist at TD Economics. Stocks rose sharply in midday trading. The Dow Jones industrial average added 247 points to 13,126,while the broader Standard & Poors 500 index rose 28 points to 1,393. The government uses two surveys to measure employment trends. Hiring is measured through a survey of businesses. The unemployment rate comes from a survey of households and is calculated by dividing the number of people who say they are unemployed by the size of the labor force. In July,more peo-p le said they were unemployed,while the size of the labor force shrank. Economists say the business survey is more reliable. A better outlook on hiring could make the Federal Reserve reluctant to take more action to spur growth.T he Fed,which ended a twoday policy meeting Wednesday,signaled in a statement a growing inclination to take further steps if hiring doesnt pick up. ence,through refund checks or discounted future premiums (80 percent for individual or small group plans). By Oct. 1,2012 plans must begin adopting rules for the secure electronic exchange of health information this will reduce paperwork,costs and medical errors. By Jan. 1,2013 new federal funding will be in place to state Medicaid programs that choose to cover preventive services to patients at little or no cost. By Oct. 1,2013 states will receive two additional years of funding to continue coverage for children not eligible for Medicaid. Effective Jan. 1,2014 most key provisions will be in place. For example: Individuals and those whose employers don't offer health insurance will be able to buy it directly from state-based Affordable Insurance Exchanges,which will offer a choice of health plans that meet certain benefits and cost standards. Most who can afford basic health coverage will be required to obtain it or pay a fee to offset the costs of caring for uninsured Americans. Americans earning less than 133 percent of the poverty level will be eligible to enroll in Medicaid. Refundable tax credits will be available to those earning between 100 and 4 00 percent of the poverty level to help pay for affordable insurance. They also may qualify for reduced copayments,coinsurance and deductibles. Annual coverage dollar amount limits will be prohibited. Adults will no longer be refused coverage due to pre-existing conditions. Insurance companies will no longer be able to charge higher rates to individuals and small groups due to gender or health status. These are only a few of the many healthcare changes we'll see as a result of the Affordable Care Act. Tolearn more, please visit www.HealthCare.gov.

Both credit unions cited s imilar reasons for the decision to merge.Economic conditions and continuing changes in federal regula-t ions were at the forefront, but also an interest on b ehalf of both credit unions to offer enhanced products and services and additionalm ember convenience that would come as part of a c redit union with a larger branch network and extended hours of operation.

If approved by the memberships,MidFlorida would add three new full-servicel ocations (Vero Beach, Sebastian and Bay Pines) and its Central Florida service area would span from coast to coast. We are thrilled at the expansiono pportunity available to us through these m ergers.With Bay Pines, our presence would increase to over 50,000m embers and 12 locations in the greater Tampa Bay a rea. Adding Indian River will allow us to introduce the MidFlorida brand of banking to the east coast a completely new market f or us,stated Kevin Jones, president and CEO of M idFlorida MidFlorida is also excited to announce the openingo f its Plant City branch. The new Plant City office o pened today at 2903 James L. Redman Parkway.Including thisb ranch,the new Brandon office scheduled to open on September 30,and the three o ffices gained through the above mergers,MidFlorida w ill soon have 38 offices in Central Florida,serving nearly 190,000 members with over $1.8 billion in assets.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIts Olympics time, where w e witness remarkable feats of athleticism being performed by youngsters thata lmost defy logic, in both the feats themselves, as well as in the tender age at which m any perform them. All the more fascinating is t he realization of how much more tender of an age they were at when they started. Well, we may be in the process of witnessing such at hing right here in Highlands County where three young members of TriPower triathlon team will soon be taking part in the Hy-Vee IronKids U.S. Championships in DesM oines, Iowa. Bud Cox, Chase Doty and K insley White are the trio that qualified for the prestigious race at the IronKids event in Haines City this past May. A nd this isnt at all a case of a soccer or pageant mom scenario, where the children are being force fed an activity to their detriment. T hey were as natural a process as could be. Last year my husband Bert decided he wanted to start running, Buds mom Ginny said. He got into it and that lead him to want to give the Heartland Triathlona try. Bud and his sister both saw their daddy doing it and wanted to join in, she continued. They all really enjoyed it and it was like they couldnt wait to try and get better to do it again. It just kind of took hold and since then, weve been run-n ing in all the 5Ks and doing a lot of biking, which is Buds favorite part of it. In the midst of this came the formation of TriPower, the Central Florida Junior Triathlon Team, headed up by Dan Andrews. e started planning it last O ctober and officially started this past February, Andrews said. We wouldnt exist without the local bike club, SPORTS D SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, August 5, 2012 C ourtesy photo The Dixie Ozone World Series runner-up, Team Sebring gave it a run that came up just short on Thursday in Cleveland, Miss. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comH ope Mills, North Carolina had taken a page o ut of the Sebring legacy. For two years, the junior Streak All-Stars had been the d ominant team in the Dixie Ozone World Series, taking back-to-back championships with nary a challenge. With that group of ballplayers moving on and trying to continue their dynasty at the Pre-Boys level, the team from suburban Fayetteville seemed to b e taking their place. T hey had run roughshod o ver the field, outscoring their opponents 64-5, includi ng a 12-1 win over S ebrings current representatives Tuesday night. Team Florida had bounced back from that loss with a 51 win over Kosciusko, Miss., Wednesday, setting up a rematch fort he title. And in that Thursday cont est, Sebring gave Tar Heel nation quite a scare. H ope Mills was in its third straight Ozone World Series, with four returning starters from last years squad, while Team Florida, while also in it for the thirds traight year, had a whole new starting squad this tim e around. Though it was a bench player from last years team Everett Hurst who had taken i n last years big run and knew the feeling to be on th e b ig stage. And so it was that he and NCs Christian Jayne locked h orns for a good old fashi oned pitchers duel extraordinaire.

News-Sun staffKendall Griffin put yet another Sertoma victory under her belt Thursday as she shot a 1-under 71 at the Torrey Oaks golf course in Bowling Green. This feat, however, was not the only one for her last week. Griffin had just recently returned from North C arolina, where she played at the infamous Pinehurst golf resort as she represented the United States. A fter finishing in the top 20 last year, Griffin was automatically qualified for the event where she managed to beat out 40 other competitors for a spot in the top two to play in the World Cup. During match play, Griffin put one point on the board f or USA, adding to the overall total of 7-2 against the International team. The courses are just immaculate! The greens were so fast, and I love fast greens. It was so much fun playing on those courses, she shared. They really did a great job of making us feel special. It was a great opportunity and I learned a lot from it! The Sertoma Junior Golf Tour took on the Torrey Oaks Golf Course in Bowling Green for the eighth event of the season. And again, there were some tight races throughout the age groups, starting with the two-stroke spread between the top three golfers in the Boys 6-8. Jack DuPriest finished with a 33, just ahead of the 34 carded by Parker Griffin and the 35 by Brody Hall. Griffin Hall was just another three shots back in fourth at 38. It was a pretty close finish in the Boys 9-10 as well, though Beckham Donavon continued his strong season with a 42 for the win. But Billy Carol nearly kept pace, coming in with a 45 for second, with Zach Doorlag five shots back for third. Griffin rising in the ranks Just returned from good showing at World Cup See SERTOMA, page 3D

This year was very different and the girls were all playing so well, said Jutanugarn, the Canadians Womens Amateur winner last week I was looking at all the scoreboards and I knew I needed to make birdies at the end to win. ... I was not driving the ball well all week until today. My driver actually helped me. I am so proud of how I played. Last year I wanted to play good, but this year I had to win. Shes the first player to win in consecutive years since In-Bee Park in 200102. The top two players in each division earned spots on the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup team. Wagner finished with a 70. I knew after I bogeyed 15 that I needed a few birdies coming in to keep up with Ariya. But I only had one birdie and she birdied the last four, so that sealed it, Wagner said. But I played well all week and now I get to play in the Junior Ryder Cup. I am so excited about that opportunity The 16-year-old Shelton closed with a 70 to finish at 13 under. He had a courserecord 64 on Thursday. Cameron Champ of Sacramento, Calif., shot a 72 to finish second. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, August 5, 2012Page 3D r idge arc; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; ridge arc; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 1 1 2 2 7 7 STANLEY STEEMER CARPET; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 8/5/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 1 1 3 3 0 0 E.O.

Our mindset is, the best a thlete is the well-rounded athlete, Andrews said. Its not about dedicating yourself to just triathlons. We want them to play other sports ands ee what they enjoy. And rather than one program for all of them, we have coaches and programs for each age level to fit their abilities. Actually, most of it is done on their own, we only h ave one full on practice each week, but have the kidsf ill out their own activity log f or the rest of the week, he c ontinued. Whether its running, a bike ride or swimm ing with their parents, its w hat they want to do. Which would seem the best way to do it, as left to t heir own devices in such an i ndividual sport, those most i nto it will rise to the top. Thats what is so special about those that qualified, Andrews said. They really e njoy it, whether its the practices with us, or with their parents or just on their own.

C M Y K N EWYORK (AP Cyclings international governing body is trying to block the case American anti-doping officials fileda gainst Lance Armstrong, saying there may be a lack of due process and that witnesses were promised advantages in exchange for incriminating statements against the seventime Tour de France winner. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency brought charges of performance-enhancing drug use against Armstrong in June, threatening to strip him of his victories. Afederal grand jury investigation of the cyclist ended four months earlier without any indictments. Armstrong repeatedly has proclaimed his innocence and sued in federal court in Austin, Texas, claiming USADArules violate athletesconstitutional right to a fair trial. In a testy exchange of letters made public Friday as part of the court case, the International Cycling Union (UCI it appoint an independent panel to determine whether the charges against Armstrong have merit. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency responded there should instead be a Truth And Reconciliation Commission to clean up the sport of cycling once and for all. UCI and the participants in the conspiracy who cheated sport with dangerous performance enhancing drugs to win have a strong incentive to cover up what transpired, USADACEO Travis Tygart said in a statement. The particip ants in the conspiracy have lashed out in the press, gone to Congress and filed a lawsuit to avoid a public display of the evi-d ence before neutral judges. Efforts to intimidate, scare or pressure us to conceal the truth will not stop us from doing the job we are mandated to do. Armstrongs attorneys raised the UCI jurisdiction claims in a separate court filing late Friday responding to USADAattempts to get his lawsuit dismissed. Among their claims, Armstrongs lawyers say that blood and urine samples cited in USADAs allegations belong to UCI and that emails from former Armstrong teammate Floyd Landis outlining alleged doping on Armstrongs teams were first sent to a USACycling official, who falls under UCIs jurisdiction. Armstrongs attorneys say now that UCI has asserted its jurisdiction, USADAs case must stop. USADAclaims it has jurisdiction, citing UCI rules. By FRED GOODALL A PSports WriterTAMP Carl Nicks believes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should be able top ut up plenty of points this season. The All-Pro guard was acquired in free agency to bolster an offensive line thatf igures to be one of the teams strongest assets. And he expects the unit to set the tone for quarterback Josh Freeman to re-establish him-s elf as a rising young star. The 6-foot-5, 343-pound Nicks spent the past four seasons as part of one of the NFLs most prolific offenses in New Orleans. The Bucsh ad one of the leagues worst rushing attacks last season, w hen Freeman also took a step back in his development. T he arrival of Nicks could make Tampa Bay better on t he ground, as well as through the air. It all starts up front, said Nicks, who signed a fiveyear, $47.5 million contracti n March after helping the Drew Brees-led Saints set a s ingle-season record for yards in 2011. Were going to be the leaders of this team.W ere going to win or lose games off our backs. Thats h ow I take it. Thats how the whole offensive lines got to take it. T he Bucs have invested heavily to try to protect Freeman, who was sacked 29 t imes and had 22 interceptions last season. I n addition to bringing in Nicks, two-time Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph is entering the second season of a seven-year, $52.5 milliond eal, and left tackle Donald Penn is in year three of a deal worth $48 million over six seasons. Acquiring Nicks also enabled the Bucs to move Jeremy Zuttah from leftg uard to center another move coach Greg Schiano t hinks will make the line stronger. The Bucs ranked 30th in rushing in 2011, averaging 91.1 yards en route to a 4-12r ecord that included 10 consecutive losses to end the season. They were middle of the pack 16th in passing, but a porous defense andt he lack of a consistent running game made Freemans job much more difficult. Nicks is confident that will change with the addition of wide receiver Vincent Jackson, tight end Dallas Clark, rookie running back Doug Martin and himself to an offense also featuring promising young players such as running back LeGarrette Blount and receivers Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn. Im kind of looked at as the veteran, and this is barely my fifth year. Its kind of a different role for me, Nicks said. ere a young team thats got a lot of talent thats got to come together. Our attention to detail has got to be second to none, and our game preparation has to be the best, he said. If you can protect the quarterback and run the ball, why should you lose. If they score 70, youve just got to score 71. I put it on my back, the whole offensive line does. T eammates say Nicks not only brings championship experience to a team that hasn t won a playoff game since the Super Bowl following the 2 002 season, but an element of nastiness. s just going to make our line solid from left to right, Joseph said, adding thatN icks also is leading by example with his work ethic. e had a very good line last year, but his level of play is, of course, All-Pro status. Hes going to make Donald Penn a lot better, he going to make Jeremy Zuttah a lot bet-t er, hes going to make me a lot better, added Joseph, a Pro Bowl selection in 2008 a nd 2011. Aguy of that status coming in here, working a s hard as he has is really encouraging to see. Hes not really going off of his past, hes working to be a better player N icks smiles when asked about the importance of the offensive line jelling into a physical, dominating unit. With Brees leading the way, the Saints were a passoriented team. Hes looking forward to doing more run-b locking as Tampa Bay tries to take some of the pressure off Freeman with a strong r ushing attack. The first thing is it gets t he defensive line tired. We wear them down and that help your pass protection, Nicks said. Another thing is knocking a guy down andw atching him get up, seeing the tiredness and hurt in his eyes. You thrive off that. ...

Chairman of the Back to School Bash Committee Robert Saffold is hoping to hand out packs to every student that attends the event but knows help is needed from the local community. Saffold and the committee needs approximately 300 backpacks to accommodate the students that are expected to attend the bash.

Statler Financial, 803 U.S. 27 S, has made it their mission to help supply the Kindergarten Learning Centers teachers with needed items for the little ones in their classrooms. After learning about the shortage on school supplies from my daughter, Maggie (KLC physical education instructor), I wanted to be able to help out with school supplies for children in need, Philip Statler said. Statler contacted KLC principal Andrew Lethbridge to obtain a copy of the KLCs supply list. After purchasing the items it adds up to almost $30 per student. This is especially hard for parents that have multiple children in the household, Statler said. Statler Financial is accepting donations for the KLC throughout the month of August. Items on the KLCs supply list include backpacks, plastic supply box, scissors (blunt tip), pencils, 8-count crayon, glue, gluesticks, hand sanitizer, wet wipes, ziplock bags (gallon or quart), Kleenex and paper plates.

This will be a terrific time to go and meet your elected officials if you have not already done so, to witness history being made, and to have your say on issues that concern you as a Sebring resident. Your council wants to hear what is important to you; your feedback helps our local government body make the best decisions for our city. The first election in Sebring was held on July 1913. At that time, city residents elected a mayor, city council of five members, a treasurer and a clerk. Only 15 votes were cast in that first election and J.H. Lopp became Sebrings first mayor. The first council meeting confronted issues of sidewalks, paving of streets and taxes, which they soon found out no one wanted to pay. The very first ordinance passed by the new town council was a resolution offering a $5 reward for the arrest and conviction of anyone selling intoxicants. The need to establish such a law suggests that there were at that early date people in the town who did not share the same convictions. Everyone in town did not agree with George Sebrings anti-alcohol views, and there was rampant disobedience of this ordinance. Although George Sebrings leadership was evident as the driving force for the quick progress of the new town, he never held public office, preferring to stay in the background and be the guiding influence. Orvel Sebring, the son and partner of his father, did serve on the city council for several years. Sebring has been exceedingly fortunate in its choice of mayors over the years. By the first charter, the term of office was one year, but with the revision in 1925 this was extended to two years, but the men who were elected have all done such a good job that each of them was re-elected as often as he would agree to serve. For the most part, the mayors, while acting as judges, were intent on maintaining a serene and happy community. Many fine citizens have served honorably in the city government. Ed Hasti served as city clerk at a difficult time durin g the Great Depression and World War II years, from 1933 until December 1945; Dan Stevenson, City of Sebrings first election was held in 1913 Centennial Notebook See SEBRING, page 6A

Obama surrenders to Americas enemies! Commentators on Fox News would opine its actually an Islamic saying he picked up in a madrassa in Indonesia. The prophet Mohammed talked about fear,it speaks to his Muslim leanings. Fox and Friends would lead the next morning with the question,Did Obama include a part of the Koran in his speech last night? Karl Marxs whole campaign was to eliminate completely obliterate fear! Now we have a president following in his footsteps!Rush Limbaugh would bellow.All his doppelgangers and dittoheads would repeat it on every corner of the Internet and talk radio:Fearless is Marxist! Those more moderate would just call him out of touch. Obama doesnt understand how Americans feel:theyre fearful of Obamacare! Mitt Romney would go on five networks to announce hes always been a big fan of fear. In America,the fear is the right height,hed declare. Saying we have nothing to fear is foreignsounding to a lot of Americans.Days later,video of Romney telling a crowd not to be afraid would come to light. His campaign would counter with another weather balloon about his VP pick. Paul Ryan? How about Ginny Thomas?would be the entire body of an email to Romney supporters. Internet message boards would speculate theres an Obama plot to criminalize negative emotions ... tied to fluoride in the water,of course. Mr. President, what are you trying to hide? Congressman Darrell Issa would launch an investigation into this alleged plot outlined on these said message boards. Sideshow Michele Bachmann would mutter about how fear is profoundly Christian and Obama with his contempt of fear has shown his contempt for Jesus ... and of course Israel. Obama wants to destroy Israel!Allen West would say its a form of slavery. John Boehner,wiping back tears,would proclaim,Fear is a job creator Mr. President why do you want to punish success? Suddenly fear would be a constitutional right. Barack Hussein Obama is trying to take away our god-given right to be afraid!We have nothing to fear? I fear our right to fear will be stripped away if Obama gets a second term. Yes,the party that bravely came out against empathy (a trait lacking in all sociopaths) when Obama admired it in Sonia Sotomayor,would come out in favor of fear. It would become their signature issue. AstroTurf busses would drop grassroots activists on the capitol lawn for the Million Phobics March. It would mainly consist of security personnel (pro-fear remember) and Sarah Palin proclaiming,Unlike Barack Obama were god-fearing Americans! SuperPAC funded T-shirts handed out at the rally would read,Im god-fearing not Mohammed-quoting! Inevitably there would be Democrats being forced to defend denouncing fear. Look,I think we can all agree fear is not helpful to Americans. No no,the president doesnt want to see it criminalized. He just said,however inartfully,we dont need it.That would be dubbed a gaffe by the 24-hour news cycle. Right-wing commentators would gasp,The administration all but admitted to their ambition of outlawing fear. We dont need it!?This is about freedom and governmental overreach! Nancy Pelosi would be asked to weigh in on the controversy. Shed say, This is not a debate about whos for fear and whos against fear this is about a struggling middle-class.The video clip would end up actually setting up several debate segments on cable news shows about whos for fear and whos against. To sum up:You have the right to be afraid! The Democrats want to take away that right! That is the choice this November! Tina Dupuy is the editor-in-chief of SoapBlox.

Always the opposite of Obama is a tricky campaign platform Guest Column Tina Dupuy One of the things that frustrate me as a Christian is when people claim to be followers of Jesus but ignore what He taught. These people will even go so far as to twist the Bible to try to justify their ungodly beliefs. This is troubling for a number of reasons. The f act they claim God supports their incorrect views means they are sending out the wrong message,forcing others to go behind them and clean up the messes they make. Then there are those who are always looking for a chance to discredit the faith. They like to point to those who fail to follow Christs teachings (though they claim otherwise) and tar all Christians with the same broad brush. Sadly,there are numerous examples of such Christians.One prominent one came to my attention this week. Charles and TeAndrea Wilson were slated to be married at the First Baptist Church in Crystal Springs, Miss. They had the rehearsal there the Thursday before the scheduled ceremony,no problem. The next day,the day before they were to be married,Pastor Stan Weatherford broke the news to them. Some parishioners came to him,complaining. One news account said they threatened to fire him if he chose to go through with the ceremony. Why were they complaining? What terrible thing had this couple done that so offended these church members? Apparently,it wasnt what theyd done but what they were you see,the Wilsons are black. The church there is predominantly white and,according to the article I read at news.yahoo.com,there hadnt ever been a black wedding at the building since the church was founded in 1883. According to another article at www.cnn.com, Weatherford apparently gave in to the unhappy members to avoid controversy.He married the couple at another nearby church. The pastor really miscalculated the no controversy thing. Members of the community and congregation reacted to the situation with dismay and outrage. Both the articles I read on the story had thousands of comments about the situation,most of them in support of the couple. The thudding sound youre hearing is me hitting my head against a wall. What is wrong with the people who objected? Read your Bible. Go from Genesis to Revelation. You will discover that there is nothing there that excuses treating people differently because of the color of their skin. Zip. Zero. Nada. You have to perform some interesting textual gymnastics to justify believing otherwise. Then there is Weatherford,who for whatever reason didnt seek to teach this small group of members better but caved in to their demands instead. Instead of trying to minimize controversy (and that worked out so well) he shouldve called them out even if it meant his job. Sometimes you gotta take a stand and pay the price. Jesus did. And finally,there may be some that want to take me to task for judgingthese people. No church is perfect,look at the church of Corinth in the Bible. They had horrible problems but were still Gods church, they might say. Its not wrong for us to call sin what it is. And make no mistake; the attitude of that small group of members is sinful. As to the Corinthian church yes,they had issues. And the apostle Paul had no problem with telling them they were wrong and had to shape up. Im not an apostle. Im just a Christian who tries to shine her light. And part of that is teaching the truth. And the truth is,Jesus wouldve married that couple and told the objectors to learn His way more perfectly. For their sakes,I hope they do. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by email at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com.

This is the first time in its 118-year history the organization has chosen a woman to lead it. Benton already made history by being the first woman in Florida elected sheriff in her o wn right,and then being reelected. She is currently running for a third term. Under Bentons leadership, the Highlands County Sheriffs Office has developed a high level of professionalism. She led the effort in gaining state accreditation by the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission for the jail in February of 2011, and the Sheriffs Office itself on June 30,2011 by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement. On her watch,emergency dispatchers from the countys many agencies were consolidated into one unit for faster responses. Perhaps even more important,Benton is as motivated to prevent crime and deal with difficult social issues. Her approach has been one of involving the community. Children,in particular,are a main focus. She created the Special Victims Unit,and has been working with the school board on strategies to deal with student truancy. More than once she has warned that todays truant is tomorrows inmate. One of Bentons frustrations,she has said in the past,is state legislation that works against local authorities trying to deal with the truancy problem. Students have to be absent from school so long before measures may be taken that negative habits set in. The laws as written allow parents to escape accountability. As president of the FSA,she now has a chance to bring more attention to this vital issue. On Friday morning she explained how excited she is about the future. One of the main functions of the FSA is providing professional leadership and collective ability to impact crime,she said,adding that individual sheriffs are more and more pooling resources,expertise and equipment and working together on larger initiatives, like fighting pill mills,and sexual predators online. While women have done much to prove they are capable,inventive and as good at leading as men,in a male dominated world such as law enforcement a womans ability has been a hard sell. What makes Benton special is that she has proven her worth and gained respect through her actions. As president of the FSA her voice will be heard,and her ideas considered. When you think about how small Highlands County is, compared to Miami-Dade, Broward or Duval counties for instance,it is especially gratifying when our officials are recognized for their leadership statewide. Congratulations Sheriff, youve done us all proud. Congratulations to Sheriff Benton It is always a pleasure to acknowledge when a public figure has done well. Even more so when a public figure is honored by peers.

For 29 years, NNO has been bringing residents out of their houses and into their s treets for fun and fighting back. Highlands County Sheriffs Office is gearing up for this years NNO, which will be held on Tuesday. Nell Hays, HCSO public information officer, is once again coordinating the event that will be held in various locations around the county. We have seven locations this year. The idea behind National Night Out is to get people out of their homes, turn their porch lights on and take back their streets, Hays explained. The NNO event has been taking place in the county for several years; it was first began in the late 1990s but took a long hiatus. According to Hays, NNO has occurred in Highlands County for the past four years. Two challenges arise, however, with planning the NNO event for Hays. Our problem is we are seasonal. There arent a whole lot of people here in August but we still want to have the event the same night as the national organization does. It is important that we (HCSO) pay back to the people that are in these communities in the off-season. They have been our eyes and will continue to be even when the winter folks return, Hays said. The other issue Hays has run into with NNO is a monetary one. NNO is nationally sponsored by Target stores. Its a challenge because we dont have a Target ... Ive reached out to the closest stores but they havent responded yet. So we (HCSO) foot the whole bill, which is fine. This is something that I budget for and believe in; the sheriff believes in it too, Hays said. NNO will take place in seven communities throughout Highlands County. (Hays hopes to continue to expand the number of communities in the upcoming years.) The NNO event will offer residents a number of activities right outside their doors. We will be having food available; hot dog, chips and beverages. Therell be cooks at each of the locations as well as shows and K-9 demonstrations. We want the residents to meet some of the sheriffs office staff that they may not be familiar with. We just want to show thanks to the people that have been here, Hays said. The events will begin simultaneously in each of the communities at 6 p.m. For more information on NNO visit www.natw.org/. National Night Out brings residents, law enforcement together Special to the News-SunT wenty-two youngsters from Highlands County were escorted to the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch in Inglis by School Resource Officers for a week of adventure, activity and fun. The camp hosts boys and girls from ages 10-15 from around the state at no cost to parents except for the physical exam required for acceptance. The one week sessions go on throughout the summer and provide an opportunity for deputies and other law enforcement volunteers to interact with the youngsters and build relationships. Camper Michael Helms said the camp helped him face the fear of the high rope and meet new people. Jensen Sapp enjoyed playing four square and the trip to Rainbow Springs. Elizabeth Griffin said it was really fun and even when it rained we played games indoors. Mikayela Berrones enjoyed meeting new people and singing camp songs. As president of the Florida Sheriffs Association, Sheriff Susan Benton said, The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches was founded in 1957 by the Sheriffs of Florida and remains one of our constant priorities. The mission of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is to prevent delinquency and develop strong, lawful, resilient, and productive citizens who will make a positive contribution to the communities for years to come. The camping programs have been in existence since 1982 and have been at Ingls for the past 10 years. Our children always have an outstanding time at camp. We look forward each summer to taking our kids on this journey, Benton said.

New Hurricane App brings Red Cross safety info to smart phones By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Council members will revisit a couple of tabled items Tuesday evening during the first monthly council meeting. The long-discussed special events manual, w hich was tabled during the July 3 meeting, will make its way back on the agenda for c ouncil members to take action. The previous discussion of the special events manual suggested that council wanted t he assistant city administrator to act as special events coordinator. The council also a greed at the July 3 meeting that the application fee would be set at $25 per day. The consensus was that the City would assume t he monetary responsibility for the first $500 of services provided for the event ( police, public works, etc.) and the event organizer would then be responsible for any additional cost exceeding $500. City Administrator Scott Noethlich will provide council with all upcoming events scheduled in the downtown area through the spring and seek guidance on what to do with those events. The Circle Park tree discussion will also be brought back to the council. Following the July 17 meeting, a Circle Park Tree Committee was created to discuss the future of the park. At a recent meeting, the committee voted to recommend to council to place one large live oak in the bare section between South Ridgewood and West Center. The committee also suggested to leave an open space between Ridgewood and Commerce as an alternate stage set-up are during special events on the Circle. The committee also voted to recommend a handful of conditions regarding the type of tree and the open soil in the area. The Sebring City Council meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

Board member Andy Tuck stated his concerns regarding the new policy and the money it would cost the dist rict. I was under the impression that last year we said werent going to spend any more money on insurance this year. We need to get the b est plan we can get for the same amount of money w eve been spending, Tuck said. The CIGNAemployees p resented the board and the full room of attendees with t he newly polished policy for approval. According to CIGNArepresentatives, the only real change to the policy is the amount of the d eductible. CIGNAalso followed the b oards recommendation to find a way to help the employees afford their d eductibles and insurance premiums. Kindergarten Learning Center principal Andrew Lethbridge addressed the b oard with the Insurance Committees decision to recommend a 50/50 plan. I think anytime youre in the budget crisis that were i n, you look at everything. We have some hurting people out there. We cut benefits by about 30 percent. Through that we had a lot of people t hat were greatly affected think that most of these plans that work well, they have about a 50 percent gap between the deductible and the fund balance. This (new policy) would get us there. I know that its money, I know that we have a limited amount. We were trying to be conservative. I know that we as an insurance committee never understood Mr. Tucks position that there will never be an increase to insurance anymore. We did hear that last year and thats why we came forward with the plan. That was never an understanding of the committee nor were we acting on that preference, Lethbridge stated. Im really thinking of our employees as a group, as a whole. Instead of a $1,750 gap, its down to a $1,000 gap. I think thats significant. I think the employees are going to appreciate that. The total cost for the CIGNAinsurance renewal and policy is $485,000, according to the Insurance Committee. The HCSB also approved the implementation of an E. O. Douglass School Historical Monument. Former E.O. Douglass students Robert Saffold and Al Joe Hinson spoke to the board about what it means to have the monument placed under the old oak tree on the campus. Wed like to have it under the Tree of Knowledge, Saffold explained. We want the school board to be a part of placing something there that helps us to never forget the principals and students that were part of that school. Staff will speak with Saffold and others involved about ideas and input on the design and development of the monument in the coming weeks. Arequest for the naming of Lake Placid High Schools gymnasium after former student and basketball star Malcolm Bill Ross was also approved unanimously by the board Thursday night. Family members and loved ones of Ross explained that they wanted to honor the LPHS graduate and all that he brought to the school and his many years of services to the community of Lake Placid. Board members unanimously approved both requests. Continued from page 1A School board votes to erect monument to E.O. Douglass Wed like to have it under the Tree ofKnowledge.

C M Y K and audience participation, the council made its decision. Only Deputy Mayor B renda Gray and Councilor Parke Sutherland spoke to the issue directly. Neither Terry Heston nor Paul Miller spoke. Gray said she would be voting in favor of the contract, partly because she represents the Southside of the city and her constituents had urged the change. She also p ointed to the more than $2 million the city would save in f our years. Ultimately, she said, the most important point was that, Citizens w alk out their door and feel safe doing it. Sutherland, too, referred to the financial savings as being an important part of his decision. Sutherland asked the most q uestions during the presentations, seeking answers to q uestions and worries that city residents brought him. For example, he asked the m ayor of Fort Meade if the city felt it had lost a sense of i dentity. The mayor replied that beyond having patrol cars without the city logo t here was no change. Benton presented her proposal, going over it point by p oint. For example, she told the police officers present t hat every one of them would have a job, even those who are not hired to fill the 16 Avon Park positions. Applicants would have to t ake the standard psychological tests required by statute and have a background check, but she was holding additional positions open so there were enough for all of the departments 22 sworn o fficers. Initially, the former police o fficers would have to serve elsewhere in the county, she said, as sheriff deputies have to be familiar with the entire county. The deputies assigned to within city limits would be a permanent presence. Coverage of the city would equal and surpass what the APPD can provide, Benton said, because the HCSO has the infrastructure to absorb the transition and would be providing the change of command supervision, all at the sheriffs cost. Anorthern district of the county, from Schumacher Road north, will have its headquarters at the APPD building on Pleasant Street. Thats where the citys saving is, Benton said. We assume all of the supervision management. Benton introduced the chain of command to the audience, including the sergeant (Manuel Gonzalez), lieutenant (Gasper Garcia) and captain (Randy Labelle, himself a former Avon Park police officer) who would be working in the city. Booker Johnson will be the major overseeing the A von Park unit. Mark Schrader, as chief deputy, will also be available to the city residents. At least four of those named are residents of the Avon Park area. Benton promised open access to the HCSO at all times.

Jen Brown is a member of the Sebring Centennial Committee. Continued from page 1A of the canvassing board, the board of adjustments and as the chairperson of the library board. Canale said she was voted Woman of the Year for the Sebring Business and Professional WomansClub, received the Presidents Award from the Womens Republican Club Federated, and was inducted into the Realtors Hall of Fame in 2010. Her background in real estate has given her a detailed understanding of some of the countys thorniest problems, she said, like the high rate of foreclosures. Canale added, however, that property is still a bargain in Highlands County compared with the rest of the state. That is something that should be used to draw people here, she said. We are the affordable Florida. She added that tourism is an important part of the economy. We can take advantage of the tourist dollars to bring in events that will bring in more tourists. Financial problems still loom large for the county. She warns, we have to say no to people we didnt say no to before. We have to set goals; if you dont focus well never reach them. Canale believes one of her strengths is that she likes to do research and is good at digging out facts. I like to look at the whole picture and get to the bottom, hear the whole story, she said. She strongly supports the Sunshine Laws. People are the major stakeholder and must be kept informed, she said. We want to be above board. Our decisions affect people every day. She believes the government should leave people and businesses alone whenever possible. She doesnt understand, for example, why people should have to pay for the right to work with an occupational license. The county, however, does have to do more to bring business to the county, she said. Only 15 building permits have been pulled since January, Canale said. We have to be aware of that. She suggests developing a one stop concierge service that would walk new businesses through their start-up process. Canale has a sense of urgency as well as possibility. I take service to my community very seriously. We dont have time to waste, she said, and we cant afford to make mistakes.

Rick Scott shot back Saturday at opponents who have sued and criticized his conservative agenda and was cheered by an audience who supports his efforts to drug test welfare recipients, strip teachers of tenure and make Florida more business friendly. Scott was a big hit addressing a gathering organized by the conservative RedState blog, drawing laughs several times as he made fun of people who oppose his policies. The governor whose approval rating was 36 percent in a poll released last week clearly was in front of a friendly crowd and he received a standing ovation when he wrapped the 24minute speech. If you do conservative things in Florida, now you get sued, Scott said, adding he then gets criticized for spending money on lawyers to defend the laws. After they sue you ... then they say Why are you wasting state dollars?Because its the right thing to do. Thats why youre doing it. Scott has been sued over laws that require drug testing for welfare recipients, create stricter voter registration rules, prevent doctors from asking patients about gun ownership, force state workers to contribute to their pension plans and more. He was also sued for ordering a purge of voter rolls to make sure non-citizens cant vote. Opponents said people who do have the legal right to vote were also being removed for the lists. Were going to have honest, fair elections. If youve passed away, you dont get to continue to vote, Scott said to laughter. If you have the right to be here, but youre not a U.S. citizen theyd never allow you to vote in Spain or Italy why would you have a right to vote here? You dont. You never did and youre not going to. He also expressed disbelief that anyone would oppose Floridas law to drug test people on welfare. Afederal judge has blocked implementation of the law. Gov. Scott a hit at conservative meet

Well, most p eople think reporters drool anyhow, so when I slur out t hat I am a journalist, they just nod knowingly. No, not the main stream media who has perfected spin. But the main street m edia. I am a real journalist who tries to chronicle events a s they happen. Neutral, as m uch as I can, and centered away from each side. I take pride when someone says, You covered that fairly. I am the local government w atchdog, on guard for graft and corruption, and a champion for free speech, even f or idiots. My goal is to give open access to everything government does, especially when the public would rather w atch Swamp People. Besides, who else is going to dig through the mayors garbage? They tell me my brain is still trying to make new paths for what was routine, so that simple things, like not drooling, does not work like it is supposed to do. The whole right side of my body is drooping now. Right leg, right arm. Nothing is working. The stroke was caused by a blood clot and 6.37 millimeters of my brain died because of a lack of oxygen. Hey, seems like a cruel twist of fate. They say every time you drink alcohol you can kill brain cells. Apparently I hadnt killed the key ones when I was young. Not for a lack of trying, you understand. The key ones decided they would wait until I was 46 and party like rock stars. Luckily, only a few thousand were in the Conga line when they went over the cliff. The small kill zone just happens to be in the area where the left side of the brain communicates with the spinal fibers for right side motor control. Near the brain stem, but not in it. I could do the whole technical thing, but you can look it up on the Internet when you can take a moment from Facebook and stealing music. One thing I can do is the John Belushi thing with my eyebrows. With the droop, the right brow hangs lower and the left one looks like it can move a foot. While I was trying to keep the scrambled eggs from escaping, I decided I would use the new skill to do the Spock look. You know the one. Raise one brow and say Fascinating. I find that if you can control the drool and not speak a whole lot, people think you are a genius. I had just finished my eggs and was working the toast when my roommate started making noises like he was in pain. He did that a lot. The toast was right. It is hard to get toast right. Not too burnt, not too soggy. Toast is an art and somewhere in the bowels of this place there was a toast artist. I was trying to ignore other people at the moment and trying to enjoy the toast and thinking about where the call button was in case the neighbor needed help behind the curtain that separated us. Hey, I know its mean, but I didnt want to talk to anyone for awhile. Astroke does that to you. Besides, he had quit and I could hear him eating, so I went back to selfabsorption. There was warm tea, so I decided to make some. The water was warm, not hot like advertised, but hey, Im not picky. I was trying to lean back and look grown up with a warm, albeit weak, beverage in my left hand. You know, like in the TVcommercials, and I was working the eyebrow, when the nurse (yep, that one) came in and opened the curtains between me and the neighbor. Got to remember to order that hit man. My neighbor was in just the hospital gown. You know it. It covers your front but your rear hangs out the open back. His face was turned right at me and his eyes we re half opened. He was sort of short and the gown hung down past his knees about six inches above his bright yellow socks. I smiled, trying to be sociable, and sipped more tea, trying to look important. I raised the eyebrow on cue. He smiled back, moaned and mumbled softly like he was trying to say something I was just about to say good morning when he slipped the urinal out from under his gown. He sat it on his table next to his tray and began to eat again. I crossed tea off my lunc h menu. Ed Baldridge is a News-Sun staff writer.

C M Y K Dear Abby: Im becoming increasingly concerned about my wife,Traci,and her influence over our 3year-old son,Grant.I love having a son,as does Traci, although she always wanted a little girl. Unfortunately, we havent been able to have another child,and my wifes focus on our son appears to be somewhat skewed. Over the last few months, Traci has been buying Grant more and more feminine clothing. Im OK with a pink shirt now and then,but lately it has gotten out of hand. She has been close to dressing Grant in drag. My wife says not to take it so seriously,but it bothers me when people tell us we have a lovely little girl. Im worried that what my wife is doing will have an adverse effect on my son, but at the same time I need to know if Im overreacting. Its a Boy! Dear Its a Boy!: My experts tell me that there is no data that demonstrates what your wife is doing will cause gender confusion in your son. Whats important is that you talk to her and express your concerns privately.Your little boy is at an age where he can sense stress in your marriage,and that could cause him problems later on. More important than what clothes hes wearing is decreasing the level of stress on the boy. Dear Abby: Im dating a man who is genuine,considerate,thoughtful,humble, responsible,committed to his family,and we have great physical chemistry. Unfortunately,there is no intellectual/social connection. We have never had an intellectually stimulating conversation,and Im not sure hes even someone I would have picked to be friends with,although we do share interests in the outdoors and our faith. I feel emotionally secure with him and keep wondering if Im being overly critical or choosing to stay in a relationship out of fear of not finding someone better in time to start a family. (Im in my early 30s.) Please advise. Indecisive in Pleasanton,Calif. Dear Indecisive: To be frank,no one person has everything.If intellectual stimulation is the quality thats most important to you, then the man you have been dating isnt the one for you. The fine qualities you listed would weigh heavily in his favor with many women. What you must ask yourself is whether or not you can be with him and find intellectual stimulation elsewhere when you feel you need it. Dear Abby: I have four grown children between the ages of 21 and 25. For years I had a career,supported them financially and put them through college and trade schools. I remarried last January. My youngest daughter now says my kids are no longer No. 1 in my life and she will no longer speak to me. I told her my husband and all my children will always be No. 1 just in a different way. Shes having a baby soon and hasnt included me in her life since January. Mind you,the baby is from a drug cartel man,they both have felonies,and she recently married her high school sweetheart. Im torn between getting on with my life or trying to reach out to her with hugs and kisses every now and then via snail mail. She has blocked me on Facebook and changed her cellphone number. Any suggestions? Torn in Tucson Dear Torn: Yes. Get on with your life. On her birthday and at Christmas send cards to let her know you love her and are thinking of her. When she needs you for something,I guarantee she'll contact you. Until then, dont hold your breath. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips.

Solution on page 4B On most evenings after dinner,my husband Ken and I read short reflections and a chapter in a book were going through together. Then we pray. Words that direct us to walk with God birth fresh conversations connecting us on new levels. Lately,weve cried out to truly hear (recognize) Gods voice. Praying in agreement, baring our souls with each other and before God creates vulnerability weaving new intimacy as Ken,I and God intertwine. AsI reflect on sharing this beautiful personal e xperience with you,I admit how easy it is to be distracted when reading and praying.Not surprising since the enemy of our souls would like to prevent a closer walk with God. Sometimes I need to ask Ken to re-read a paragraph because I realize my mind has drifted.Other times,he looks at me puzzled because a truth has nudged him,but not left its mark. And so we re-read again. But,our Father God is pleased and blesses us beyond measure in even our pitiful attempts to draw closer to him.And as we learn to listen well,we do begin to hear and recognize his voice. One morning after having prayed with Ken and on my o wn about a sense of uselessness that had been plaguing me for some time, I left our bed early and sat in the dim light of the gently rising sun. Be still,and know that I am God,says Psalm 4 6:10,NKJV.I was truly attempting to do that. As I sat there waiting in the silence breathing out more of a wordless sigh than a prayer,I knew his unmistakable voice as it quietly,but in an all-encompassing way,filled my soul ina momentous way giving an unexpected answer to my cry. You are listening to the accuser. That is not my v oice.I dont speak to my children that way. I cannot explain how totally cleansed how refreshingly washed I felt from head to toe. Jesus is the truth and T ruth with a capital Thad just dispelled darkness. T ruth had relieved my mind of lies.Truth had embraced me and reminded me that Gods Word encourages, uplifts,challenges and brings hope not despair even when it is convicting. Suddenly I knew it was all right to be exactly where I was. Waiting on the Lord and trusting him. My usefulness wouldnt be measured by doing; but,by being. And,for now,that was exactly where I was supposed to be. Hear,listen and be set free. Selah Jan Merop is a News-Sun correspondent.

C M Y K By JOCELYN NOVECK AP National WriterNEW YORK Only 11 years after her death,Elton John sang his ode to Marilyn Monroe. And I would have liked to have known you,but I was just a kid,went the lyrics. Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did. What John didnt know was how much truer his w ords would ring a few decades later. Monroe passed away a half-century ago today,a murky death that remains o neof Hollywoods most tantalizing mysteries. But l ook around:Her legend lives on,more vibrantly than ever. In a development this fiercely ambitious actress surely would have appreciate d,this 1950s bombshell has become a 21st-century p op culture phenomenon. Just flip through a celebrity magazine:Some of-them oment young starlet or pop singer will be channeling (or o utright appropriating) those platinum locks,the bright red lips,moist and slightly p arted,and that joyously, almost defiantly curvy figure,sheathed in something skin-tight and glamorous. Was that Marilyn on the r ed carpet at last years Teen Choice Awards? No,it was Taylor Swift,wearing a white halter-style dress just like Marilyns in The Seven Y ear Itch,in which the actress stood atop a subway g rate and let the breeze of a passing train lift her skirts. ( Oh,and that dress? It sold at auction last year for a mind-boggling $5.6 million, including commission.) Was that Marilyn in the D olce & Gabbana ad a while back? No,it was Scarlett Johansson,all white-blonde hair and ruby lips. And there was Charlize Theron in a D ior ad last year,meeting up with the real Marilyn,not to mention Marlene Dietrich and Grace Kelly,via CGI. Magazine spreads have featured Nicole Kidman, Lindsay Lohan,Rihanna, Michelle Williams,Viola Davis and others having their Marilyn moment. Madonna,of course,has famously appropriated Monroes look into her image. So have singers Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani. In June,on what would have been Marilyns 86th birthday,Lady Gaga tweeted Happy Birthday Marilyn Theyll never take our blonde hair and lipstick,along with a picture of herself,Monroe-like. Nicki Minaj says shes obsessed with Marilyn Monroe. On the big screen,actress Williams earned an Oscar nomination for her moving portrayal of Monroe in My Week With Marilyn.And one of TVs most popular new shows is Smashon NBC,which follows a Broadway musical based on Marilyns life,with two actresses competing to play her. Heck,theres even been a giant Marilyn traversing the country:A 26-foot-tall, 34,000-pound statue of the actress,white dress billowing and undies showing,by artist Seward Johnson,now resting in Palm Springs, Calif. And there are plans for much more thanks to the purchase in late 2010 of Monroes estate,which includes her image,by Authentic Brands Group and its partner,NECA. The companys CEO,Jamie Salter, says he aims to upgrade the Marilyn brand by moving a way from cheap souvenirs and developing Marilynthemed cosmetic lines,spas and salons,sportswear, swimwear,footwear,handbags and more. There are even plans for wait for it the inevitable Marilyn Monroe reality show,in which young women would compete to become a new Hollywood icon. But just what is the secret of Marilyns enduring appeal? It depends on whom you ask and thats fitting, really,because Marilyn, more than other iconic celebrities,was different things to different people. There was,most simply, Marilyn the actress a Marilyn that often got lost in all the hype,despite her desperate aspirations to be taken seriously. Film historian Leonard Maltin laments that many people know Marilyn as an image and an icon, but not as an actress. Monroe showed off her dramatic chops in The Misfits,for example,and Bus Stop.But she is probably best remembered for her delightful comic turns in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes as the gold-digging Lorelei Lee who sang Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friendin that classic pink gown; as the sensuous but ditzy Girl in The Seven Year Itch; and as sexy band singer Sugar Kane in Some Like it Hot. Marilyn just leaps off the screen,says Maltin. She has a luminosity that transcends everything else. Still,an entire younger generation is enamored of her for something completely different,says Brandon Holley,editor of Lucky magazine,which draws women in their 20s and 30s. I think most women under 40 havent seen her movies,Holley says. For them,shes a style type the ultimate hourglass figure. And a lot of women identify with that. Christopher Nickens agrees. Marilyn was the epitome of a certain kind of feminine ideal,says the coauthor of the recently released Marilyn in Fashion,a rare look at Monroes influence in that field. Her key fashion legacy, he says,was to bring bodyconscious clothes into everyday life. Though she wasnt seen as a fashion icon during her lifetime,Nickens thinks Marilyn shared something with other style icons like Jackie Kennedy,Grace Kelly,and AudreyHepburn. They didnt follow trends, he says. Its about knowing yourself and what works for you,and having that confidence. Confidence isnt necessarily something one associates with Monroe,of course. In that Elton John song, Candle in the Wind,shes a beautiful innocent victimized by a terrible Hollywood machine people who whispered into your brain and set you on the treadmilland made you change your name. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, August 5, 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.

For a while,that is, until her demons took over. On the 50th anniversary of her death,heres a look at five of her most memorable film performances,the ones that stand out over her prolific but short career:Some Like It Hot (1959)This was the first title that came to mind when I began pondering this list. Maybe because its the best film she was ever in the Billy Wilder classic is listed as the greatest comedy ever by the American Film Institute but also,the role of Sugar Kane K owalczyk is just so quintessentially her.Monroe is totally magnetic,with innocence and sexuality in equal measure. As the lead singer of an all-girl orchestra,she gets to sing,dance, play the ukulele and show off her comic timing. Monroe finds a tricky balance between her otherworldly looks and a downto earth charm,and plays beautifully off Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)Describing her performance as gold-digging Lorelei Lee as iconic would not be hyperbole. Her rendition of Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friendremains so enduring,it inspired Madonnas Material Girl video,down to the blonde w aves,candy-colored pink dress,admiring back-up dancers and tightly structured choreography. Monroe actually gets second billing behind Jane Russell in Howard Hawks musical comedy,based on the Broadway show about a couple of showgirls and best friends who travel to Paris,run into misadventures and revel in all the attention thrown their way.The Seven Year Itch (1955)Heres Monroe again at the center of one of films most famous images:standing over a New York City subway grate,letting the wind from a passing train send her ivory,pleated halter dress billowing all around her. (The dress itself sold at auction last year for a whopping $5.6 million, including commission.) But the whole performance is a great example of her screen presence in a nutshell: naive,sweet,beguiling and irresistible. Shes such an idealized incarnation of classic female allure,shes known only as The Girl. Working for the first time with Wilder (who famously had difficulty with her), based on the George Axelrod play,Monroe plays the sexy upstairs neighbor who bewitches Tom Ewells character while his family is away for the summer. Bus Stop (1956)A rare opportunity for Monroe to show some dramatic ability. But really, everything she can do is on display here:Joshua Logans film,based on the William Inge play,offers the full range of Monroes abilities. She stars as Cherie thats pronounced Sher-EE,not Cherry a lousy saloon singer toiling away in Phoenix until she can find a way to get to Hollywood. Yes,her Arkansas accent grates and if were being honest, the way overzealous cowboy Don Murray carries her off and forces her into an engagement would merit a restraining order now.The Misfits (1961)A poignant pop culture time capsule:This is not just Monroes final film but Clark Gables,too. Co-star Montgomery Clift would be dead a few years later. Monroes then-husband, playwright Arthur Miller, wrote the script for her to give her a meatier role. But by all accounts,alcohol and pills made her an absolute mess and she was frequently late to John Hustons set. Given that her newly divorced character is drunk most of the time,along with the lost souls with whom she seeks solace in the Nevada desert,its hard to tell where the performance ends and real life begins.

C M Y K NASHVILLE,Tenn. (AP) The members of country duo Love and Theft view the last few years as addition by subtraction. First,they lost their record label. Then Brian Bandas,the third member of their trio, quit. But with a new deal with Sony Music Nashville imprint RCA Nashville and a single chugging up the charts,Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles love their new lives. Were both on the same page,Liles said. Were way closer friends than either of us were with Brian. We musically have the same influences. We have the same goals and visions with what we want to do with our band. And lets be honest, Gunderson joked,it doesnt take a genius to realize that if you split money two ways instead of three ways,you make more money. You cant blame Gunderson,27,and Liles,28, for feeling nervous upon the release of their self-titled second album,which came out last week. Theyve been to this point before and had everything fall apart twice. Originally signed by Disney Music Group to Carolwood Records,that imprint was shuttered just a few months after the release of their debut album,World Wide Open.They moved to Disneys Lyric Street,which was already home to another trio you might have heard of, Rascal Flatts. That label closed in 2010,leaving the band to start over from scratch. They didnt even have the rights to re-record their own music. Executives at Sony had looked closely at the band early on and were again interested in signing a deal last year. But on the day the offer came through,Bandas called Gunderson and Liles and told them he was quitting. They werent about to give up,though,and tried to convince label executives they were still viable as a duo. I think when you hear Stephens and Erics voices together thats the answer right there,Sony Music Nashville President and CEO Gary Overton said. When Overton first heard the groups work as a trio,he said he liked the music but didnt know who was singing what part. As a duo,Liles and Gunderson still trade off on vocals sometimes midsong but there was something more distinctive about Love and Thefts newest incarnation. They love to perform, Overton said. And I talked to our radio staff here and they said they checked them out at radio and radio loves them. But really it just comes down to that music piece. I spent a little time with those guys and I told them I dont care if youre a duo or a trio.

K eynote speaker Shane Pollard,special agent in charge for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement,commended the class on finishing what t hey had started. You are taking the extra step in your l ives to better yourselves. Every single one of you that started together has finished t ogether. Thats not very common. He also reminded the class that they still have a lot to learn. Theres so much that comes along with the job than you can ever encompass. You cannot doubt yourself on the decisions you will be forced to make. Sometimes you will do everything right, and the outcome will still be the same,but it will be your character in those difficult times that defines you. The Cross Over Academy assists those who are already correctional officers become law enforcement officers. The last Cross Over Academy was held in 2004. We dont hold the program often because its a 457-contact hour program, said Jerry DeJonge,director, SFSC Public Service Academy. For six months, our students come to class every day from 6 to 10 p.m. after working 10to 12-hour shifts at full-time jobs. Some miss out on important times with their families to do this. Cross Over Academy students have a high level of commitment. We only get one chance in the real world,said James West,student speaker. As law enforcement officers,we will face all kinds of new challenges. Go enforce the laws in your community,but remember that law enforcement is only a small part of the job. 21 graduate from SFSC Cross Over Academy Courtesy photo SFSC Cross Over Academy student Sherry L.

The plants and animals that make their homes in different environments are adapted to their specific habitat. Aquatic environments such as swamps, marshes,rivers, streams,lakes and ponds support plants and animals that are unique t o their watery world. The plants in a wet ecosystem provide oxygen,shelter and food f or the animals that live there. There are three different types of wetland plants including emergents,floating p lants and submergents. All of these plants are important components to t he ecosystem. Emergents are plants that grow in the water but pierce the surface s o that they are exposed to air. Pickerel weed is an example of an e mergent plant. This perennial plant can reach heights of over three feet out of the water. The leaves are shiny,green and lance shaped. The flower is a purplish color and is t ubular in form. Poking out of the water allows emergents to photosynthesize more efficiently as well as reproduce. Generally these types of plants are pollinated by wind or insects. The portion of the plant that is under water provides habitats for various micro and macro invertebrates,which are food for larger species of wildlife such as fish. Floating plants have adapted so that their leaves float on the surface of the water. These plants can be free-floating or anchored to the bottom of the water body. Regardless of the type of floating plants,all provide food and habitat for fish and wildlife. The roots of floatingleaved plants provide a stable surf ace for successful fish spawning. When these aquatic plants die,they significantly contribute to the sediment,often making the water body shallower and nutrient rich. American lotus is an example of a floating plant. Mostly known for its large,beautiful blooms,the seedpods are often sold as ornamental items. The flowers are approximately six inches wide and appear to be a luminescent yellow bloom floating on the water. Growing underneath the waters surface are the submergents. Most of these plants are anchored to the bottom of the water body by roots, however some are actually free floating under the water with no roots. Coontail is actually a free floating submersed plant that has feathery leaves which are arranged in whorls on the stem giving it the look of a raccoons tail,which is how it got its name. Coontail does produce flowers,but they are so small that usually they are not seen. All submersed plants provide habitats for the smaller species that live in the water. These are consumed by fish and other wildlife. Once the plant dies,their decomposition by bacteria and fungi provides food for other aquatic species. Many animals inhabit the wet areas of our planet. Dragonflies rely on plants that grow in wet areas. Although the dragonfly lives its adult life on land,while in the larv al stage it is completely aquatic. The female lays her eggs in the water. The eggs hatch into the n ymphal stage,which have a special appendage on their head used to spear small fish. These nymphs are predators from the time they hatch from the eggs. These interesting insects actually go through a metamorphosis process where they grow their wings. Most of the life of a dragonfly is spent in the larva stage, which can be up to three years. Once the creature reaches adulthood,it lives only a few weeks. Animals including fish,amphibians,reptiles,birds and mammals can all be found in the wet ecosystems. Bluegill live in shallow and slow-moving waters. They prefer areas where there is an abundance of aquatic vegetation where they are able to hide and search for food. The adult fish feeds on aquatic insect larvae including that of the dragonfly. They will also munch on crayfish,leeches,snails and small fish. Turtles are another creature that can be found in or near the water. They enjoy basking in the sun on a nearby log or rock where they can quickly dive into the water if threatened. Turtles are omnivores and will eat algae,aquatic plants,dead and live animals such as fish,snails and frogs. There are literally thousands of plants and animals that rely on these watery worlds to survive. W etlands are a very important piece of a healthy planet. In addition to providing homes,shelter and food to countless species of wildlife, these areas filter runoff water,ease flooding conditions and help stop erosion.

These plants, as well as emergent and submergent vegetation have an important role to play in the ecosystem. Aquatic plants provide habitat and food for wildlife as well as contribute to the nutrients to the sediment.

But now that the Supreme Court has upheld much of the acts constitutionality,its a good time to review key provisions that have already gone live and to plot out whats expected to happen in the next two years. Changes already in place include: Children under 19 cannot be denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions. Adult children may remain on parentsmedical plan until they turn 26. Lifetime insurance maximum payouts were eliminated. In addition, annual coverage limits are being phased out. Effective Sept. 23,2012 the annual limit increases to $2 million. All new plans now must provide certain preventive services for free, such as mammograms, immunizations and colonoscopies. People whove been refused insurance because of preexisting conditions may now be eligible for coverage through a highrisk poolprogram. Go to www.pcip.gov/ for information and to apply online.

C M Y K WASHINGTON (AP) Employers added 163,000 jobs in July after three months of sluggish hiring,a pleasant surprise that could signal the U.S. economy may be resilient enough to shake off a midyear slump. The economy has added an average of 151,000 jobs a month this year,although thats not been enough to drive down the unemployment rate,which ticked up to 8.3 percent from 8.2 percent in June. The Labor Departments July employment report did little to settle the political debate about the economy,with Obama administration officials and Gov. Mitt Romney seizing on the latest data to bolster their campaigns with less than four months to go until Election Day. Before Fridays report, economists were increasingly worried that a slowdown in hiring and growth from April through June could get worse and develop into something more long-lasting. Now they are breathing a little easier. After a string of disappointing economic reports ... well certainly take it,said James Marple,senior economist at TD Economics. Stocks rose sharply in midday trading. The Dow Jones industrial average added 247 points to 13,126,while the broader Standard & Poors 500 index rose 28 points to 1,393. The government uses two surveys to measure employment trends. Hiring is measured through a survey of businesses. The unemployment rate comes from a survey of households and is calculated by dividing the number of people who say they are unemployed by the size of the labor force. In July,more people said they were unemployed,while the size of the labor force shrank. Economists say the business survey is more reliable. A better outlook on hiring could make the Federal Reserve reluctant to take more action to spur growth. The Fed,which ended a twoday policy meeting Wednesday,signaled in a statement a growing inclination to take further steps if hiring doesnt pick up. ence,through refund checks or discounted future premiums (80 percent for individual or small group plans). By Oct. 1,2012 plans must begin adopting rules for the secure electronic exchange of health information this will reduce paperwork,costs and medical errors. By Jan. 1,2013 new federal funding will be in place to state Medicaid programs that choose to cover preventive services to patients at little or no cost. By Oct. 1,2013 states will receive two additional years of funding to continue coverage for children not eligible for Medicaid. Effective Jan. 1,2014 most key provisions will be in place. For example: Individuals and those whose employers don't offer health insurance will be able to buy it directly from state-based Affordable Insurance Exchanges,which will offer a choice of health plans that meet certain benefits and cost standards. Most who can afford basic health coverage will be required to obtain it or pay a fee to offset the costs of caring for uninsured Americans. Americans earning less than 133 percent of the poverty level will be eligible to enroll in Medicaid. Refundable tax credits will be available to those earning between 100 and 400 percent of the poverty level to help pay for affordable insurance. They also may qualify for reduced copayments,coinsurance and deductibles. Annual coverage dollar amount limits will be prohibited. Adults will no longer be refused coverage due to pre-existing conditions. Insurance companies will no longer be able to charge higher rates to individuals and small groups due to gender or health status. These are only a few of the many healthcare changes we'll see as a result of the Affordable Care Act. Tolearn more, please visit www.HealthCare.gov.

Riggs joins American Car Signs Special to the News-SunLAKELAND On the heels of the successful c ompletion of the spin-off of Space Coast Credit Unions Tampa Bay assets to MidFlorida,MidFlorida has announced that federal and state regulators have g iven swift approval to move forward with two o ther mergers Indian River Federal Credit Union and Bay Pines Federal C redit Union. Both credit unions cited s imilar reasons for the decision to merge.Economic conditions and continuing changes in federal regulat ions were at the forefront, but also an interest on b ehalf of both credit unions to offer enhanced products and services and additional m ember convenience that would come as part of a c redit union with a larger branch network and extended hours of operation. As for selecting MidFlorida as a merger partner,William Garrett, p resident and CEO of Indian River Federal Credit U nion stated, MidFloridas approach to improving each members financial well-being coupled with the ability to prov ide access to branches across the state and new services such as mobile banking,bill pay and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. extended drivethru hours,made them an ideal merger c andidate.The sentiment was shared by Anthony D ominick of Bay Pines Federal Credit Union as well. If approved by the memberships,MidFlorida would add three new full-service locations (Vero Beach, Sebastian and Bay Pines) and its Central Florida service area would span from coast to coast. We are thrilled at the expansion opportunity available to us through these mergers.With Bay Pines, our presence would increase to over 50,000 members and 12 locations in the greater Tampa Bay area. Adding Indian River will allow us to introduce the MidFlorida brand of banking to the east coast a completely new market for us,stated Kevin Jones, president and CEO of MidFlorida MidFlorida is also excited to announce the opening of its Plant City branch. The new Plant City office opened today at 2903 James L. Redman Parkway.Including this branch,the new Brandon office scheduled to open on September 30,and the three offices gained through the above mergers,MidFlorida will soon have 38 offices in Central Florida,serving nearly 190,000 members with over $1.8 billion in assets. The final step for each credit union will be a member vote.Ballots will mail in early August to all members in good standing from each credit union. Members will be able to cast their v ote by mail or at a special meeting of the membership. Both meetings are slated to take place during the fourth week of August. MidFlorida gets nod for mergers What the healthcare law will mean to you US hiring picks up in July with 163,000 jobs added Associated PressWASHINGTON The governments consumer f inance watchdog is investigating mortgage insurance deals between banks and the insurers American International Group Inc., MGIC Investment Corp. and Genworth Financial Inc. The three companies said in public filings this week that they had received subpoenas from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for information about captive mortgage reinsurance deals. Borrowers have alleged in multiple civil lawsuits that mortgage insurers paid millions in kickbacks to banks in exchange for a slice of the lendersmortgage-insurance business. Mortgage borrowers whose down payments are less than 20 percent typically must buy private mortgage insurance that protects the bank in case they default. In a 2009 case filed in Pennsylvania,borrowers said Countrywide Financial Corp. encouraged them to use specific mortgage insurers. In return,they said,the mortgage insurers purchased reinsurance from a unit of Countrywide,now part of Bank of America. The reinsurance deals unfairly add to peoples monthly payments while offering them no direct benefit,said Adam Levitin, a visiting professor at Harvard Law School. Mortgage insurance probed

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK While USAswimmer Michael Phelps is winning gold at the Olympics in London, Special STARS athletes competed in swimming events on Saturday, July 28 at the Sebring High School pool. There were approximately 45 swimmers from Highlands County with disabilities who competed in a 25-meter lap or noodle races. Noodle races are done in the shallow water so swimmers can build up confidence in the water and race toward a person holding the noodles. Noodle racing was divided into two different lengths one race was 15 meters and one was 25 meters. In the 25-meter lap competition Nicole Lewis won first in her heat while Joe Singha and Bill Wheeler won first in their divisions. Second-place ribbons were won by Shawn Squires, Sharon Carpenter and Amy Matthews. Third-place winners were Greg Robinson, Angie Luft and Stephanie Travi. Fourth-place finishers were Rob Ward, Ilana Levy and Mac Smith. In the 15-meter noodle race, first-place winners were Herb Adkins, Katie Gibson, Ronnie Gladson, Joshua Croston and Dama Massey,. Second-place ribbons went to Charles Hodgkinson, Minnie Sue Reid, Edrei Lopez, Patty Toepper and Penny Holder. Third place went to Jim Kentfield, Dustin Akey, Maricel Moreno and Sarah Moore. Fourth-place finishers were Kathy Mitchell, Jeannene Eby and Cody Crouse while Kenny Roberts won fifth. In the 25-meter race, firstplace winners were Annie Horn and Becky Anders. Second place went to Alan Kufnowski and Larry Rivers. Third-place winners were John Smith and Linda Decker. Awards were presented after lunch which was served after competition. Special STARS will be preparing for billiard competition next, which starts on Saturday, Aug. 18 at Cue Time Billiards in Sebring. For details, call 452-1295, ext. 124. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIts Olympics time, where w e witness remarkable feats of athleticism being performed by youngsters that a lmost defy logic, in both the feats themselves, as well as in the tender age at which m any perform them. All the more fascinating is t he realization of how much more tender of an age they were at when they started. Well, we may be in the process of witnessing such a t hing right here in Highlands County where three young members of TriPower triathlon team will soon be taking part in the Hy-Vee IronKids U.S. Championships in Des M oines, Iowa. Bud Cox, Chase Doty and K insley White are the trio that qualified for the prestigious race at the IronKids event in Haines City this past May. And this isnt at all a case of a soccer or pageant mom scenario, where the children are being force fed an activity to their detriment. They were as natural a process as could be. Last year my husband Bert decided he wanted to start running, Buds mom Ginny said. He got into it and that lead him to want to give the Heartland Triathlon a try. Bud and his sister both saw their daddy doing it and wanted to join in, she continued. They all really enjoyed it and it was like they couldnt wait to try and get better to do it again. It just kind of took hold and since then, weve been running in all the 5Ks and doing a lot of biking, which is Buds favorite part of it. In the midst of this came the formation of TriPower, the Central Florida Junior Triathlon Team, headed up by Dan Andrews. We started planning it last October and officially started this past February, Andrews said. We wouldnt exist without the local bike club, SPORTS D SECTION News-Sun Sunday, August 5, 2012 Courtesy photo The Dixie Ozone World Series runner-up, Team Sebring gave it a run that came up just short on Thursday in Cleveland, Miss. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comHope Mills, North Carolina had taken a page out of the Sebring legacy. For two years, the junior Streak All-Stars had been the dominant team in the Dixie Ozone World Series, taking back-to-back championships with nary a challenge. With that group of ballplayers moving on and trying to continue their dynasty at the Pre-Boys level, the team from suburban Fayetteville seemed to be taking their place. They had run roughshod over the field, outscoring their opponents 64-5, including a 12-1 win over Sebrings current representatives Tuesday night. Team Florida had bounced back from that loss with a 51 win over Kosciusko, Miss., Wednesday, setting up a rematch for the title. And in that Thursday contest, Sebring gave Tar Heel nation quite a scare. Hope Mills was in its third straight Ozone World Series, with four returning starters from last years squad, while Team Florida, while also in it for the third straight year, had a whole new starting squad this tim e around. Though it was a bench player from last years team Everett Hurst who had taken in last years big run and knew the feeling to be on th e big stage. And so it was that he and NCs Christian Jayne locked horns for a good old fashioned pitchers duel extraordinaire. Inning by inning the Ozone runner-up See DIXIE, Page 4D Hope Mills1Sebring0 Courtesy photo Kendall Griffin shot a remarkable 71 at Torrey Oaks to win Thursdays Sertoma event, and that was the second most impressive thing she did in the last week.

STARS swimmers bring home awards See TRI, Page 3D Courtesy photo Bud Cox (from left), Kinsley White and Chase Doty are headed to Iowa to compete in the IronKids U.S. Championship. News-Sun staffKendall Griffin put yet another Sertoma victory under her belt Thursday as she shot a 1-under 71 at the Torrey Oaks golf course in Bowling Green. This feat, however, was not the only one for her last week. Griffin had just recently returned from North Carolina, where she played at the infamous Pinehurst golf resort as she represented the United States. After finishing in the top 20 last year, Griffin was automatically qualified for the event where she managed to beat out 40 other competitors for a spot in the top two to play in the World Cup. During match play, Griffin put one point on the board for USA, adding to the overall total of 7-2 against the International team. The courses are just immaculate! The greens were so fast, and I love fast greens. It was so much fun playing on those courses, she shared. They really did a great job of making us feel special. It was a great opportunity and I learned a lot from it! The Sertoma Junior Golf Tour took on the Torrey Oaks Golf Course in Bowling Green for the eighth event of the season. And again, there were some tight races throughout the age groups, starting with the two-stroke spread between the top three golfers in the Boys 6-8. Jack DuPriest finished with a 33, just ahead of the 34 carded by Parker Griffin and the 35 by Brody Hall. Griffin Hall was just another three shots back in fourth at 38. It was a pretty close finish in the Boys 9-10 as well, though Beckham Donavon continued his strong season with a 42 for the win. But Billy Carol nearly kept pace, coming in with a 45 for second, with Zach Doorlag five shots back for third. Griffin rising in the ranks Just returned from good showing at World Cup See SERTOMA, page 3D

C M Y K FORTWAYNE, Ind. (AP) Thailands Ariya Jutanugarn successfully defended her title Friday in the Junior PGA Championship, and Robby Shelton of Wilmer, Ala., won the boysdivision. The 16-year-old Jutanugarn, a 10-stroke winner last year, birdied the last four holes at Sycamore Hills for a 5-under 67 and 14under 274 total, three strokes better than 15-year-old Samantha Wagner of Windermere. This year was very different and the girls were all playing so well, said Jutanugarn, the Canadians Womens Amateur winner last week I was looking at all the scoreboards and I knew I needed to make birdies at the end to win. ... I was not driving the ball well all week until today. My driver actually helped me. I am so proud of how I played. Last year I wanted to play good, but this year I had to win. Shes the first player to win in consecutive years since In-Bee Park in 200102. The top two players in each division earned spots on the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup team. Wagner finished with a 70. I knew after I bogeyed 15 that I needed a few birdies coming in to keep up with Ariya. But I only had one birdie and she birdied the last four, so that sealed it, Wagner said. But I played well all week and now I get to play in the Junior Ryder Cup. I am so excited about that opportunity. The 16-year-old Shelton closed with a 70 to finish at 13 under. He had a courserecord 64 on Thursday. Cameron Champ of Sacramento, Calif., shot a 72 to finish second. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, August 5, 2012Page 3D ridge arc; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; ridge arc; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 1 1 2 2 7 7 STANLEY STEEMER CARPET; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 8/5/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 1 1 3 3 0 0 E.O.

And n owwe have 43 kids registered, ranging in ages from 516. Based out of the Highlands County YMCA, the team sees t he diversity of the ages, and adapts appropriately. Our mindset is, the best a thlete is the well-rounded athlete, Andrews said. Its not about dedicating yourself to just triathlons. We want them to play other sports and s ee what they enjoy. And rather than one program for all of them, we have coaches and programs for each age level to fit their abilities. Actually, most of it is done on their own, we only h ave one full on practice each week, but have the kids f ill out their own activity log for the rest of the week, he continued. Whether its running, a bike ride or swimming with their parents, its what they want to do. Which would seem the best way to do it, as left to their own devices in such an individual sport, those most into it will rise to the top. Thats what is so special about those that qualified, Andrews said. They really enjoy it, whether its the practices with us, or with their parents or just on their own. They enjoy it, which means they are going to work hard at it and do well. Do well is somewhat an understatement as this trio of pre-teens has set the bar high for their TriPower teammates. While having an eye on the Iowa trip, the kids continue with Saturday team practices and will have a final warmup race at next weekends RockinHeartland race on Sunday, Aug. 12. In the time preceding the big trip, funds are sought to be raised to offset the travel expenses and registration fees. Businesses throughout the area have donation jars, such as Bike Shop Sebring, Highlands YMCA, Apple a Day, CrossFit Sebring, Fitness Together, Sebring Diner and Rezultz Fitness in Lake Placid. Also, on Wednesday, Aug. 8, Beef OBradys will donate a percentage of dinner tabs, from 5-8 p.m., just tell the server you are there for TriPower.

Four shots separated the top four in the Boys 13-14 for a nother barn burner. Jason Cannons 92 held up for the win, with Sam Rogers, 93, and Coleman Nelson, 94, breathing down his neck, while Sam WeberCallahan finished with a 96 for fourth. It was a one-two shootout in the Boys 15-16 where Cole Berger edged Rhett Pooley 76-77, while Easton Davis held on to third at 82 over Ben Tubbs 84 for fourth. Ashley Engle had an easier time of it in the Girls 11-13, shooting a 55, while necomer Alyssa Armentrout gave it a go but never challenged for the lead. Things were more spread out for the leaders in the older groupings, with Daniel Miller topping the Boys 1718 with an 81, 12 shots up on William Beatty in second. Jonah Brown and Kevin Ladue kept relative pace for second, shooting 94 and 95, respectively for third and fourth. And it was in the Girls 1418 that saw Kendall Griffin return from her prestigious outing among the U.S. Teen Ryder Cup on the legendary Pinehurst course. Tough as Torrey Oaks might be, coming off the challenge of Pinehurst, Griffin made it look easy, carding a one-under par 71 for a 17-stroke win.

PETERSBURG T ampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria could rejoin the team during a three-game series that starts Tuesday against Toronto. Longoria has been sidelined since May 1 because of a partially torn left hamstring. His return could provide a power bat in the middle of the Raysstruggling batting order. When he does come back, I think everybodys going to expect the skies to part, its going to stop raining and all that other kind of stuff, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said before Friday nights game against Baltimore. Hes going to need to come back and be patient because major league players in August have been playing all year. This guy has not. Hes on a rehab assignment. Hes basically coming out of spring training with 1 1/2 legs, so youve got to be patient and understand that there might be a little bit of a curve to be worked with here. Tampa Bay has used eight players at third base since Longoria was hurt. He likely will start off as a designated hitter.Upton brothers both hit 100th career HRPHILADELPHIA(AP) Justin Upton didnt even get bragging rights for one night. Brothers Justin Upton and B.J. Upton both hit career homer No. 100 on Friday night, just about an hour apart and in different leagues. Justin Upton connected for Arizona in the second inning at Philadelphia off Kyle Kendrick. Then it was his older brothers turn. B.J. Upton went deep in the fourth inning for Tampa Bay against Baltimores Tommy Hunter. It was cool. Im happy for him, Justin Upton said after Arizonas 4-2 win. Its a big night for the family. B.J. Upton joins Rickey Henderson, Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonds, Cesar Cedeno, Lloyd Moseby, Eric Davis and Hanley Ramirez as the only players to amass 100 homers and 200 steals before age 28. Upton turns 28 on Aug. 21. Justin Upton was aware going into the game that he and his brother were tied at 99 homers. It was mentioned after the last game, he said.

C M Y K NEWYORK (AP) Cyclings international governing body is trying to block the case American anti-doping officials filed a gainst Lance Armstrong, saying there may be a lack of due process and that witnesses were promised advantages in exchange for incriminating statements against the seventime Tour de France winner. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency brought charges of performance-enhancing drug use against Armstrong in June, threatening to strip him of his victories. Afederal grand jury investigation of the cyclist ended four months earlier without any indictments. Armstrong repeatedly has proclaimed his innocence and sued in federal court in Austin, Texas, claiming USADArules violate athletesconstitutional right to a fair trial. In a testy exchange of letters made public Friday as part of the court case, the International Cycling Union (UCI) proposed that it appoint an independent panel to determine whether the charges against Armstrong have merit. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency responded there should instead be a Truth And Reconciliation Commission to clean up the sport of cycling once and for all. UCI and the participants in the conspiracy who cheated sport with dangerous performance enhancing drugs to win have a strong incentive to cover up what transpired, USADACEO Travis Tygart said in a statement. The participants in the conspiracy have lashed out in the press, gone to Congress and filed a lawsuit to avoid a public display of the evidence before neutral judges. Efforts to intimidate, scare or pressure us to conceal the truth will not stop us from doing the job we are mandated to do. Armstrongs attorneys raised the UCI jurisdiction claims in a separate court filing late Friday responding to USADAattempts to get his lawsuit dismissed. Among their claims, Armstrongs lawyers say that blood and urine samples cited in USADAs allegations belong to UCI and that emails from former Armstrong teammate Floyd Landis outlining alleged doping on Armstrongs teams were first sent to a USACycling official, who falls under UCIs jurisdiction. Armstrongs attorneys say now that UCI has asserted its jurisdiction, USADAs case must stop. USADAclaims it has jurisdiction, citing UCI rules. By FRED GOODALL APSports WriterTAMP Carl Nicks believes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should be able to put up plenty of points this season. The All-Pro guard was acquired in free agency to bolster an offensive line that figures to be one of the teams strongest assets. And he expects the unit to set the tone for quarterback Josh Freeman to re-establish himself as a rising young star. The 6-foot-5, 343-pound Nicks spent the past four seasons as part of one of the NFLs most prolific offenses in New Orleans. The Bucs had one of the leagues worst rushing attacks last season, when Freeman also took a step back in his development. The arrival of Nicks could make Tampa Bay better on the ground, as well as through the air. It all starts up front, said Nicks, who signed a fiveyear, $47.5 million contract in March after helping the Drew Brees-led Saints set a single-season record for yards in 2011. Were going to be the leaders of this team. W ere going to win or lose games off our backs. Thats how I take it. Thats how the whole offensive lines got to take it. The Bucs have invested heavily to try to protect Freeman, who was sacked 29 times and had 22 interceptions last season. In addition to bringing in Nicks, two-time Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph is entering the second season of a seven-year, $52.5 million deal, and left tackle Donald Penn is in year three of a deal worth $48 million over six seasons. Acquiring Nicks also enabled the Bucs to move Jeremy Zuttah from left guard to center another move coach Greg Schiano thinks will make the line stronger. The Bucs ranked 30th in rushing in 2011, averaging 91.1 yards en route to a 4-12 record that included 10 consecutive losses to end the season. They were middle of the pack 16th in passing, but a porous defense and the lack of a consistent running game made Freemans job much more difficult. Nicks is confident that will change with the addition of wide receiver Vincent Jackson, tight end Dallas Clark, rookie running back Doug Martin and himself to an offense also featuring promising young players such as running back LeGarrette Blount and receivers Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn. Im kind of looked at as the veteran, and this is barely my fifth year. Its kind of a different role for me, Nicks said. Were a young team thats got a lot of talent thats got to come together. Our attention to detail has got to be second to none, and our game preparation has to be the best, he said. If you can protect the quarterback and run the ball, why should you lose. If they score 70, youve just got to score 71. I put it on my back, the whole offensive line does. T eammates say Nicks not only brings championship experience to a team that hasnt won a playoff game since the Super Bowl following the 2002 season, but an element of nastiness. Its just going to make our line solid from left to right, Joseph said, adding that Nicks also is leading by example with his work ethic. We had a very good line last year, but his level of play is, of course, All-Pro status. Hes going to make Donald Penn a lot better, he going to make Jeremy Zuttah a lot better, hes going to make me a lot better, added Joseph, a Pro Bowl selection in 2008 and 2011. Aguy of that status coming in here, working as hard as he has is really encouraging to see. Hes not really going off of his past, hes working to be a better player. Nicks smiles when asked about the importance of the offensive line jelling into a physical, dominating unit. With Brees leading the way, the Saints were a passoriented team. Hes looking forward to doing more runblocking as Tampa Bay tries to take some of the pressure off Freeman with a strong rushing attack. The first thing is it gets the defensive line tired. We wear them down and that help your pass protection, Nicks said. Another thing is knocking a guy down and watching him get up, seeing the tiredness and hurt in his eyes. You thrive off that. ... If I could maul somebody on every play, thats what Id do. Page 4DNews-SunSunday, August 5, 2012www.newssun.com HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 9 9 8 8 2 2 DR.

And as the innings went on, the intensity grew, as both offenses were s tymied, but each with the p otential to break it open a t any time. Sebring, after all, had f lexed itsmuscles with 17 and 15 run outbursts earlie r in the tournament. But the bats for both s ides would be held in check the rest of the way, with Jayne, one of those returning starters, showing his prowess by setting a W orld Series record with 16 strikeouts and working his way out of a late threat by the Streaks to secure the 1-0 win. And so the Ozone title will see a new home this year as the Sebring dynasty couldnt quite continue. Or could it? The two-time champs, as it happens, saw their first World Series experience come in the AAAranks, where they took third, before reeling off the backto-back Ozone titles. With a second-place finish in their first foray into the Dixie summer classic, and a multitude of starters likely back again next season, the makings of another dynasty may have just begun.
