Clouds banked on the horizon, but overhead the sky was a clear blue and the sun beat down. Four teenagers, each wearing a red T-shirt with Failure is not an option in big white letters on the back, climbed all over a large pile of debris. The towering jumble contained a tree trunk about 3 feet around, roof beams and sheets of twisted aluminum. Boards jutted out like porcupine quills, bristling with nails. It was all that was left of a home destroyed by Junes tornado. The young men are all students at the Sheriffs Last Chance Ranch in Glades County. At-risk teens are remanded there by the court system for an opportunity to turn their lives around. Highly structured and residential, the program is a mix of public high school and ranching.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunSEBRING With the c ommencement of yet another school year on the horizon, Big Brothers Big Sisterso f the Sun Coast has been working to collect school s upplies over the course of the summer months to provide to children in our com-m unity to ensure they were well equipped to take on their upcoming scholastic e ndeavors. To cap off recent beautific ation efforts at their local office, 279 U.S. 27 in the Village Fountain Plaza, the office hosted its first Back to School Open Housetod istribute all of the supplies collected. The office enhancements were generously contributed by Lowes, and local Lowes employees selflessly donated their time to aid in the remodel workc onducted over the last weeks. T his year was especially rewarding for the incoming students as not only were the standard school supplies donated, but they were alsot he proud recipients of brand new backpacks to start their year off right. Thanks to the massive amount of donations received this year, what isn ormally a small event to simply pass out school supplies on an individual basis, turned into an event requiring a night dedicated to school readiness. In total 75 backpacks, filled with everything necessary for a successful school year, were given out to deserving children. Asurplus of supplies was also able to be passed out due to the vast amount of community support received this year. This would not have been possible without the generous contributions from the Highlands County Board of County Commission, Highlands County Sheriffs Office, Highlands County Tax Collectors Office, Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Office, Highlands County Courthouse, Champion for Children Foundation, and public information officer for Highlands County, Gloria Rybinski. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast would not have been able to achieve such success in their annual school supply drive had it not been for the tireless commitment from this great community. All of the school supplies raised enabled us to give promising futures to our local youth. By investing in the lives of our children we are making a substantial investment in their future and t hat of our community. Together we are starting something big, and helping them reach their potential to f lourish, said Kiko Vazquez, BBBS community resource director.

Such is the voting power of gun owners who have been scared by a phony narrative that suggests any measure of gun control is cer-t ainly the first step to inevitable serfdom ... Even facing down the t hreat of al-Qaida has not been a binary choice between liberty and oppression,but,r ather,a balancing of rights and security,neither of which i s worth much without the other. The trick is in striking a r easonable balance. This week,U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy,D-N.Y., and U.S. Sen. Sen. Frank Lautenberg,D-N.J.,proposedo ne reasonable step,which would be to stop the online sale of ammunition. Under the proposed Stop Online Ammunition SalesA ct,only licensed dealers would be allowed to sell ammunition and they wouldb e required to report any sale of more than 1,000 rounds to an unlicensed person. B uyers of ammunition would be required to show p hoto identification. Its a modest step. It offers no guarantees against futuref irearm carnage. But neither does it impinge on the right of someone with a legitimate use to obtain ammunition without much fuss. B ut we have seen since Sept. 11,2001,that one strong hedge against terrorism of all kinds is the common sense intervention ofa verage citizens when their warning bells go off that something just isnt right. Thats a hedge that is not infallible. The accused in theC olorado shootings reportedly bought weapons face-toface without any dealer rais-i ng questions. But James Holmes also received some 40 packagesb y delivery service over several weeks,including 6,000 r ounds of ammo,according to law enforcement authorities. Those purchases were m ade,Lautenberg observed, like you might order shoes or food. He didnt have to interact with another humanb eing who could have noticed his abnormal behavior. If the gun shop owners did not notice abnormal behavior while interacting with Holmes,the owner of a shooting range said he did when Holmes made a half-hearted e ffort to gain membership. I s worth giving average Americans the opportunity to notice something is awry when a guy makes at least 40 separate purchases while arming himself with fourw eapons,6,000 rounds of a mmunition and body armor to cover himself from head to f oot. An editorial from the Kingston ( N.Y.) Daily Freeman Online ammo sales need to be stopped In the wake of the multiple murders ... are we,in fact,helpless to do anything at all about it? True marriage is not gayEditor: Marriage is ordained of God for propagation of the human race,for pleasure,for companionship,for love and support. The Bible is explicit,And the Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man,and brought her to the man. And the man said This is now bone of my bones,and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman,because she was taken out of Man.For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother,and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. The homosexual practice and agenda is absolutely wrong. Just look at Genesis 19. Visitors came to Sodom and Lot took them to his house; the men of the city surrounded the house and they called to Lot and said to him, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them.They wanted to have homosexual relations with them. Gods attitude toward this sin is seen in the destruction of Sodom. In Leviticus 18:22,the Bible says ou shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. Hooray for Dan Cathy,CEO of Chick-fil-A,who took his stand for the biblical truth of marriage between a man and woman and who aired his biblical belief that those who champion same-sex marriage are risking divine retribution upon us all. He said,e are inviting Gods judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say,e know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.This man of God has a right to voice his beliefs. Chick-fil-A does not discriminate against any patron. It is a very sad day in America when the Democratic party has decided to endorse homosexual marriage in its platform. In 2008,Barack Obama was still for traditional marriage. I loveAmerica. There is great hope for this great country,but we need to repent of all kinds of sins and turn back to God as a nation and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour,who madet he only way to heaven,by shedding his blood and giving His body at Calvarys cross as full payment for our sins. He rose again and is coming back again as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Where we spend eternity will depend on what we do with Jesus. How God loves everyone of us that he gave His only begotten Son for us. May God have mercy on us and bless America. Jerry R. McCauley Lake PlacidA step back in timeEditor: I started this write up June 2008, when gas was more than $4 a gallon. I still remember my dad telling me about the summer of 1912,when some of the early pioneers heard that George Sebring was going to be coming down here again in October. He was going to be driving a car this time. At that time, there was no road from Avon Park to Sebring. My dad said that some of the early pioneers got together and followed along about the same path around Dinner Lake that he used to walk on when he went to Avon Park. They did some country boy paving in the bad sandy places to help Mr. Sebring get down here. I still remember in the s seeing some spots of country boy paving around different places in the woods. People who come here today have several different paved roads on which to travel to Sebring. They have big equipment to build roads with today. I just happen to think there probably isnt anyone today who even knows what country boy paving is. When the early pioneers came here, the only equipment they had were some hand tools,an axe and shovel. They had to do the best they could with what they had. Palmettos were plentiful and were everywhere. They cut palmetto fans and put them in the ruts. That was country boy paving. I remember my dad saying that when S tate Road 8 was built from Avon Park to Sebring,it followed along about the same path as the old palmetto road that Mr. Sebring had traveled on around Dinner Lake. Today,when people move down here, there are already water lines,power lines and telephone lines close by that they can hook up to. When the early pioneers came here,they had to stop at Smith Hardware in Avon Park. William Schlosser Sebring BouquetHospice treated entire family with careEditor: I would like to publicly acknowledge and thank the wonderful staff at Hospice House in Sebring for the compassion,kindness and care shown to Beverly Moore during the final week of her life. I have been an RN for 48 years and can honestly say I have never seen the level of care and attention that was continuously provided to keep her in comfort,resting quietly and peacefully. We can not begin to describe how fantastic they all were to Mom and to us. Highlands County is blessed to have such a facility available to patients facing end-of-life illnesses and to the families of these patients. Although I have been an advocate of hospice for many years,this is the first time I have had personal experience with the services they provide and would never hesitate to recommend them. Our sincere and heart-felt thanks goes out to all the staff ... each of you touched Moms life and ours as well. You truly are angels walking the face of this earth and we are so grateful you were there for Mom and for us. Linda and John (Jack) Moore Lake Placid I normally try to obey t he laws of the land. Like many,I need to follow thes peed limit laws a little better,but overall Im pret-t y good at doing what I s hould. H owever,this may not a lways be true. I can envis ion circumstances where I m ight knowingly break the l aw. I will even tell you ahead of time what would d rive me to that decision. Its simply this. The day t he government outlaws Bible reading,worshipping God,or being a Christian in general is the day I b ecome a lawbreaker. If I have to choose between Gods law and mans,God is going to win. Because I hold this philosophy,I became very interested in the case of Michael Salman,an Arizona man who is currently serving a 60-day jail term for hosting what he r efers to as Bible studies in his home. O n the surface,it looks like a clear case of religious discrimination. However,in reading a number of articles about this story for the column, ve found that the truth of whats going on is a little more complicated then that. According to an article posted on www.phoenixnewtimes.co m (which has a number of articles regarding this case) Salman wasnt always a man of God. In fact,he did time in jail for his involvement in a drive-by shooting while a gang member. While in prison,Salman apparently found the Lord. He also enrolled in a Bible correspondence course and was ordained a minister before getting out of jail. After leaving prison, Salman started his own church,Harvest Christian Fellowship. It quickly outgrew his living room. They needed a place to meet. After trying several things, including renting space from a Baptist church, Salman got an idea. He moved to a Phoenix neighborhood after checking to see if the zoning there allowed for churches. Once he settled in,he began his plan to build a church building on his four-acre property. It didnt go smoothly. It probably didnt help that Salman was less than forthcoming about his intentions when he applie d f or his building permits. His first permit in 2007 a llowed him to build what the article describes as a garage type structure,s omething with no electricity or plumbing. When C ity Hall was informed that the building in question was something differ-e nt,they put a halt to the construction. It didnt end there. S alman has been trying to get his church building g oing ever since. He got a permit for a game room in his backyard. Said structure has no games in it. It does have a pulpit andc hairs that are arranged like pews. Articles claim that Salman held two services a week and had as many as 80 people attending people he claims are merelyf amily and friends getting together for a Bible study. T he city thought otherwise and finally arrested Salman for building code violations. He was charged with 67 misdemeanors.A ccording to the article on www.foxnews.com,he is holding Bible studies in prison. I really wish I could root f or Salman without reservation. I think people should be allowed to hold Bible studies in their homes. The early Christians met in homes, and had services in them. I think that should be OK. But its not OK to lie about your intentions. And as Christians we are called to obey the laws of the land as long as they dont contradict Gods law. Salman didnt do that. He flouted the law because it kept him from doing what he wanted to do. I hope he comes out of prison a wiser man this time. That he works with his neighbors instead of fighting with them.

But its owner says the charges are old and being rehashed as part of an attempt to discredit the hospital by a fertilizer company that wants to mine phosphate nearby. The Department of Children and Families conducted an unannounced inspection recently of The Florida Institute of Neurologic Rehabilitation, after Bloomberg News reported on some of the allegations. DCF says it has confirmed 36 abuse allegations there since 2005. Hospital CEO Joseph Brennick says he has no tolerance for abuse. He says a fertilizer company wants to mine phosphate near the hospital that county officials estimate could be worth roughly $1.2 billion. The company says it has had no contact with Bloomberg News regarding the hospital.

C M Y K Everything is a great effort when you are paralyzed on your right side. Without both sides of yourb ody, there is no balance. Imagine tying your right arm to your body. Think about that for a moment. How often do you use youra rm for balance, to reach for something. How many times a day do you stand up or sit down? How many times do you write your name? Everything you do involvesa balance. Now, tie a concrete block t o your right foot then try to put your underwear on. Thats exactly how it feelsw hen you have lost the use of one side of your body. Y ou are out of balance. Socks are the worst. The good leg is hard enough with one hand, the other leg, the one with the concrete blocka ttached, takes sometimes 10 minutes to wrangle just your t oes into a sock. Seams not straight? Forget about it. Now your shoes. Try to b end over to put on shoes with one arm tied down. It t akes most of your energy not to fall on your face. One thing I would recommendf or just everybody get the elastic shoe laces and pay someone to tie them for you. T hat works best and has the least amount of cursing i nvolved. You would not believe what comes out your mouth while tying a bow ona concrete block with one hand. L uckily, I can blame the colorful speech on the stroke. I have almost convinced my speech therapist to believe that Ive acquired Tourette Syndrome. Standing up is a whole d ifferent ball of wax. Your arm becomes dead weight a nd the concrete block does nothing to hold you on your feet. Matter of fact, it often conspires with the floor to trick you into thinkinge verything is fine as the floor sneaks up and smacks you upside the head. I committed the cardinal sin the other day: I was offb alance and I fell. The whole time I was falling all I could think was: Crap. They will make me get a bathroom buddy. Falling in a hospital is the wrong thing to do. If you even look a little wobbly, every nurse, staffer, therapist, housekeeper, maintenance man and even the guy who mows the grass flinches and rushes to save you. Witha fall there is a mound of paperwork that has to filed with the insurance mafia. There are charts and graphs and conferences. Someone may even be executed. Fortunately, my incident went undocumented because of quick thinking, precision timing, a little luck and a lot of help from God. My wife, Beth, had just left for the day and I was returning from a solo bathroom visit. I did everything right. Put wheelchair at the right angle for transfer to bed, check. Lock the right wheel, check. Lock the left wheel on the chair, check-ar oo. Use the chair arm to stand, check. Ooops, too l ate, forgot to set my feet square. It was like a scene in the movie The Matrix.T ime slowed, my thoughts accelerated to light speed a nd floor tiled. As I pitched, I realized that I still had my good left arm on the wheelchair. Pulling hard to port (thatsl eft for those of you who havent read Moby Dick), I a imed for the bed. Remembering my training in scuba class, I tried to relaxm y body and go with the fall. It worked! I face-plante d from the waist up on the soft bed. Ha! Go, scuba training! U nfortunately, my body from the waist down was still off the bed and I bent b eautifully at the waist because I was limp. Oh crap. T hat never happened in scuba class. The wall, bless its soul, was close enough to the side of bed that it stopped mef rom sliding completely onto floor, but now I was pinned between the wall and the bed. At least I was no longer in motion. OK. I could deal with this. I just had to put both my knees on the floora nd use the bed to stand up. Easy peasy. E ver notice how shiny hospital floors are? Remember Tom Cruise in Risky Business where he slides into frame on hisw hite cotton socks? Put the two together, add cotton sleep pants, a concrete block and a trapped right arm and you will come close to then ext 14 minutes of my life. Except Old Time Rock and Roll was not the sound track. I kept hearing Paul Simon and Slip Sliding Away I managed to get my good knee under me, but the other leg, the one with the concrete block, had decided it was on strike and had left a little sign that read Gone fishing. Be back tomorrow After what seemed like a year, I finally wrestled both legs under me and was close to suffocating in hospital sheets when my good arm broke free and decided to join my brain in the fight for the solo bathroom privileges. With the extra limb, I was able to straighten up, but myp aralyzed arm decided to join the leg in the strike. It screamed Solidarity and jumped off the bed. The dead weight again took meo ff balance to the right. I clutched at the bed sheets with my left and was thanking the housekeeper for tucking them in on the far side when the nurse walked. Is every thing all right? she inquired. Her eyebrows w ere trying to climb onto the top of her head as her brain registered the scene inp rogress. Right then those fateful w ords flashed through my head. Houston, we have a problem. The lights were low, I was on my knees by the side ofb ed with my bad arm flailing and the bed sheets clutched t ightly in my good hand. What to do? My brain was still in Matrix mode and as ingle thought hit me like a bolt of lightening. I did the o nly thing that would make sense. I bowed my head and a cted like I was praying. Mr. Baldridge, is everything all right? her voice w as now close to a shriek as she pictured the avalanche of p aperwork ahead. Just getting ready for bed, I slurred as I tried to calm my heart rate. Do you need anything? Just some privacy, I replied in a calm, steady voice. Let me know if you need anything, she said quietly as she backed out of the room and softy closed thed oor. She had bought the ruse. Whew, that was close, I spoke out loud. It was right then that I decided I would make use of the position before I spent the next 20m inutes clawing my way back onto the bed. I bowed my head in earnest and gave thanks that night for the good things Is till had: my wife, my family, the support of good friends and a functioning brain. After I finished, I clawed my way back onto the bed. As I settled down in the pillows my soul became quiet from the efforts. I felt a sense of balance in my life despite the physical struggles. It was then, as I was drifting off, that I thought I heard small but strong voice whisper De nada. Ed Baldridge is a News-Sun staff writer.

Rooney says his main focus is not specifically certain issues but the people within the expanded district. Im focusing on getting to know people. About 50 percent of the people in the district are new to me. I want to focus on those people, Rooney said Thursday afternoon. As for the issues, Rooney is fully focused on agriculture and veterans. e have to strive to do better. We are losing veterans so quickly to suicides and there are just so many scams out there. People preying on our older veterans, Rooney said. Job creation is a hot button topic for the candidate. Rooney will focus on that issue without ceasing if elected. Those are my focuses seniors and farmers and workers. We have to create an economy where jobs can grow. We (House and Senate) are going to continue to talk about things like tax reform and regulatory reform because theres so much red tape that farmers have to deal with and small businesses have to deal with just to get moving, Rooney said. We need to send a message, not only to businesses here, but to businesses that were here and that have left (for other countries) to come back. Rooney said his biggest worry is the next four years following the upcoming election. The thing that Im afraid of most is that we get to January and its the same president, the same Senate and the same House were going to go through four more years of the same gridlock, Rooney stated. Rooney said Congress has only a 9 percent passing rate currently, a rate he believes is truly hurting the economy and the country. One thing Rooney is completely pushing and focusing on is the energy race for the state. I think Florida is really missing the boat on energy he said. Weve seen the housing coming back a little, tourism will continue to sustain because people always wants to come down for the sun, but we are sitting on a treasure here with energy. We know there is natural gas under our feet. I dont buy that we dont have enough confidence in ourselves to do safe drilling off of our shores and away from our beaches. I believe the U.S is better than that. We shouldnt have to rely on Venezuela or Iran. Rooney believes that energy is the fourth leg to completing and moving the country forward. Rooney also supports becoming a food independent country and the government making citizens lives as simple as possible. Continued from page 1A Rooney running to keep seat doors. Weve been through 1 0 counties knocking and getting to know the people i n the district so that I can serve them, Arnold said. T he primary focus for Arnold if he is elected is job creation. Arnold wants to work on creating positions for those who are unem-p loyed or have lost their jobs due to downsizing and foreign workers. Im focused and working on bringing jobs back to theU nited States. The way to do that is to bring manufacturing back here. Were always giving our money to manufactures out of the country like China. We have to stop that and we have to stop funding folks and countries that arent friendly to us, Arnold said. Another issue that gets Arnold going is government spending. The debt and spending, I look at them as two separate issues. The spending is out of control. There needs to bea balanced budget amendment. Through this, every d epartment across the board can look at itself and say Where do we need to make cuts?Nobody knows the departments better than the departments themselves. We could start with 10 percentc uts or whatever Congress decides throughout each department, Arnold said. If we dont get that (debto ur children can never have the opportunities in this country that we have had. Our kids will be paying our debts and our burdens for years to come, said Arnold. With the gridlock in the Congress, Arnold knows the task wont be easy. Arnold has become frustrated with the current lawmakers pitted against one another and not doing what is in the best interest of the countrys citizens. These legislatures now, theyre not in the districts enough. Nobody is listening to us, nobody understandst he needs of the people in t his district or in other dist ricts. I dont believe the legislators read the bills and that is part of the problem, Arnold stated. The increase in spending is one of myb iggest frustrations. Arnold plans to educate himself and the citizens of the district by having a more personal interaction if elected. Town hall meetings, sit-d owns and question-anda nswer forums are all a huge part of Arnolds plan to create a better district and bridge the gap between lawmakers and citizens. That is a big part of the reason I am running. This is why I am doing this, for the future of our children. For everybodys future, Arnold said. C ontinued from page 1A Arnold running for congress A ssociated Press JANESVILLE, Wis. Even before Wisconsin sent Paul Ryan to Congress, he was meticulously carving ap ath that seemed to point only upward. As a young Capitol Hill staffer, he impressed Republican lawmakers withh is hustle and intellectual curiosity. He blended quickly with an elite crop of conservative thinkers. By his 30s, he was a congressmano n his way to becoming a GOPname brand with his push-the-edge budget pro-p osals. Ryans climb reached new heights Saturday whenR epublican presidential nominee Mitt Romney a nnounced him as his running mate. Mitts Choice for VPis P aul Ryan, said a phone app Romneys team created t o spread the word to supporters. As the chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan gives Romney a linkt o Capitol Hill leadership and underscores Romneys e ffort to make the election a referendum on the nations economic course. Romneya lso could see his standing improve in Wisconsin, a s tate President Barack Obama won handily four years ago but that could be m uch tighter this November. Even so, Ryan has been a double-edged sword for R omney. The congressmans endorsement of Romney came at a critical stage oft he GOPprimaries, giving him a boost in the W isconsin race that effectively buried Romneys final threat. But it alsom eant Romney was embracing the Ryan-sponsored b udget proposal that Democrats fiercely target as painful to the poor and elderly. Still, the square-jawed c ongressman is viewed as a bridge between the butt oned-up GOPestablishment and the riled-up tea party movement. A t 42, Ryan has spent almost half of his life in the W ashington fold, the last 14 representing a southern Wisconsin district that runs f rom the shores of Lake Michigan through farm country south of Madison. R yan grew up in Janesville and still lives just down the block from whereh e spent his boyhood. His father, a lawyer, died of a h eart attack when Ryan was a teenager. Its why Ryan is a fitness b uff, leading fellow lawmakers through grueling, e arly-morning workouts and pushing himself through mountain climbs. That same intensity propelled him on the politicalf ront, too. He was first exposed to C ongress as a summer intern to Sen. Robert Kasten. With an economicsd egree in hand, Ryan worked his way through c ommittee staff assignments, a prominent think tank and top legislative a dvisory roles until opportunity arose with an open seat from his home turf.

I wish it was better Republicans are expected to show up in greater numbers due to the amount of Republicans on the ballots for local campaigns. Campbell predicts the big three for the local voters will be the House races, school district positions and Campbells own Supervisor of Elections position. The house race is a big campaign and it has gotten kind of heated, Campbell said. I know that one will be the biggest. The only Democrats in local races are those on the school board campaigns. Most people are just going to wait until November for the presidential election to vote on the local stuff, too. Early voting closes Saturday and Campbell is prepared for anything. ou dont really now if there will be a lot the day it closes. People may rush out or just wait, theres no telling, said Campbell. The primary election voting will take place from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday. Atotal of 25 polls will be open for registered voters.

Clearing away tornado d ebris grew out the ranchs tradition of reaching out to c ommunity. When a friend got in touch with Bob McDaniels, who teaches husbandry at the ranch, and told hima bout an elderly man who needed help with his destroyed home, McDaniels got a team of boys together. s about giving assistance, McDaniels said. Giving back to the commu-n ity and developing a work ethic. R anging in school grade from high school freshman to senior, each teen was from a different county. McDaniels called them f rom their work. They approached a visitor with arms stretching out for a hand shake, making direct eye contact and using the word sir Sunburned and sweaty, they wore heavy leather gloves and floppy brimmed hats. A sked how they were g oing about moving the debris, one raised his hands i n the air and wiggled his f ingers. The old-fashioned way, he smiled, were using our hands. The crew began Tuesday. B y Friday, theyd managed to fill two 30-yard containers with about half the d ebris. McDaniels thought t hey might have two to three more days of work. Watching the boys separ ating wood from the pile, it b ecame clear the project was as much about practical learning as it was doing ag ood deed. For example, a fence post lay on its side, the bottom third a solid block of con-c rete that had to be removed. It was a task the teens stood in line to do. Each in his turn picked up the small sledge hammer and pounded away with abandon. Slow down, not so h ard, McDaniels said. The hammer will just eat you up. And indeed it did. Each boy had to finally give up. I dont care how long you beat it, McDaniels told t hem, youre not going to wear that hammer out. Instead, McDaniels said, t hey should look at the concrete block like a puzzle. Learn how to see the parts, t he cracks, where we want t o break it off. He stepped back and watched with affection as the boys worked steadily asa team. McDanielsgoal to help each one become whole man who lives a fulfilled life. Tos tart in a new direction, he said, there is nothing better than learning hard life skills under the hot sun.

Oh,yes!I a ssured him. I had only begun to babysit this very verbal 2-year-old. His parents hadw arned that he didt nap. When hes tired,hell just fall asleep wherever, they had said. I sensed he needed a cozy,scheduled time for a nap and encouraged him tor est on my bed. I made him comfortable,sang to him, hugged him and promisedw e would play when he woke up. T hen he asked me that heart-wrenching question. He was looking for a s ense of security,of belonging that he wasnt getting at h ome. Though his parents surely loved him,his mom was an airline hostess and his dad a real estate agent. Both jobs kept them runningo n the fast track of schedules that clashed. C onsequently,James may fall asleep when mommy was home and wake up tof ind her goneor vice versa. Even though one or t he other parent was there, James was afraid to take a nap. I held him close and reassured him I would be there. Then he rested his head on the pillow and fell asleep peacefully. F rom then on,he actually asked,Is it time for my nap yet?While he was with us, he could confidently close his eyes in sleep assured of m y being there. He belonged and was cared for. Recently,I read in Isaiah 43:1,N KJV,Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you areM ine. Fear notyou are Mine. Im not lost in the crowd. He knows my name. W e all want to belong. To know that someone cares and will be there for us nom atter what. The chapter continues by saying that God will be withh is people in every situation. It assures them they a re precious in his sight and loved. Most people have known t he wounding that rejection brings. Someone you trusted b etrays you. Someone who vowed they would never leave does just that. Someone who once made you feel like you belongedn ow has cast you aside for another. B ut,even in those dark murky waters or that fiery trial,God declares,Fearn otyou are Mine. The Lord Jesus Christ g ave his life for you and me. When we receive his free gift of salvation a chieved by his death and resurrection,we belong to him. He has called us by our name and knows us. We are his and he is ours. A h!The joy of belonging. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. The joy of belonging Dear Abby: This is my f irst-ever Dear Abby letter. I am disgusted by the lack of manners shown by cellphone users. I run an antique store in a smallt ourist town. I cannot tell you how many insulted and incensedcustomers I have asked to please leave my shop because they insisted on talking on their cellphones. I have also asked people in church to carry on their conversations outside. A man at my daughters high school graduation got a call and proceeded to talk on and on until I finally asked him to leave. This has happened in restaurants, movies even a Broadway play. Its inconceivable to me that cellphone users are unwilling or unable to understand that their VIP conversations are an intrusion and rude to those who are forced to listen. Peeved in Nantucket, Mass. Dear Peeved: It is difficult to teach consideration for others to people who have none. However,allow me to clue you in to what some communities are doing to curb the intrusion of cellphones:They have posted signs in restaurants, theaters and shops that read,Cellphone-Free Zone. The owner of this establishment thanks you for not using your cellphone on the premises. If you must make or receive a call,please do so outside. That way,customers are warned in a way thats not confrontational. Dear Abby: What is proper when youre talking with someone and you notice the person has food stuck in his or her teeth? What if the person is part of a group and someone you dont know very well? Toothful in Florida Dear Toothful: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you were in the other persons place,wouldnt YOU want to be told? Even if you know the person only casually,try to ease him or her away from the group and say,I know we dont know each other very well,but I thought you should know you have something in your teeth. Its happened to me,and I thought youd like to know, too. Consider it a charitable act. The person will:First, be embarrassed; second,be grateful. Dear Abby: I am a supervisor in a consulting firm. I have recently been assigned an employee who does not dress appropriately for the workplace. The fashion choices she makes are unprofessional and too casual for our company. She wears no makeup,nor does she consistently care for her hair. Abby,this young woman meets the public. Her job is to consult with clients and advise them about investing their money. Her appearance has been commented on by clients and colleagues alike and does not lend confidence in her skills and abilities. How do I counsel her without hurting her f eelings? Apprehensive in Conservative-ville Dear Apprehensive: Your job as supervisori ncludes counseling your employees with regard to anything that affects job performance and the image of the company. If the company doesnt have a dress code,its time to establish one. Then schedule a private meeting with this employee and discuss what you expect from her. Offer her a few pictures of appropriate business attire and stylish, easily manageable hairstyles. Stress that her appearance is an important part of the image of the company and your clients perception of her skills and talents. By emphasizing that the dress code will be of value to her,youll put yourself in the position of doing hera favor rather than being critical.

C M Y K B y LEANNE ITALIE Associated PressNEW YORK Chores p iling up. DVRs stuffed and groaning with unwatched favorites. Late,bleary strolls into the office. Welcome to the Great O lympic Time Suck,that unsung sport that has millions glued to coverage of the London Games rather than tending to real life. At 34-year-old Angie B utchers house in suburban Chicago,the suck looks like t his: Dishes are not getting done. Kids are not gettingb aths at night. Kids are up hours past bedtime,said B utcher,whose family has been watching anything and everything. Nice summer evenings are going by and none of us are outside toe njoy it. Dinner has been picnic style on the living r oom rug more than once. The suck has been so bad that her neighbors even won-d ered whether the family of five was out of town. T he family is far from alone. Nielsen said 29.1 million people watched NBCsW ednesday coverage,making it the 12th time in 13 nights that the audience for t he London Games beat the corresponding night in B eijing. Nearly eight in 10 Americans,in fact,have watched or followed the games either on television,o nline or via social networks,according to a survey done Aug. 2-5 by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. If Bosco,Julie OGradys Australian shepherd in PaloA lto,Calif.,could speak, hed likely be shrieking, Get a grip woman!His pained,pathetic pleas havent been enough to pry the tech industry public relations specialist away fromt he Olympics. s not getting his nightly walk. Period,a contrite OGrady admitted. In Miami,Jim Angleton h as a financial services business to run. Hes always been a big Olympics fan,and has attended several in person. This time around,his late-night viewing obsession has him heading to the office a t 11 a.m. rather than his usual 8:30,ditching his n ightly jogs,shedding his signature suits in favor of jeans,and failing to return calls and emails on time to make room for the games. H e,too,had a dog problem on one out-of-it day. I forgot to walk the dog before I left for my office. Yup,found a surprise when Ia rrived home,said Angleton,56. E milie Yount,30,a writer and actor in Chicago,was a sprinter in high school andh er first year of college. Shes been a swimmer all her life and has a friend who w orks at the rowing venue, Eton Dorney,so shes been g lued to her TV and London. Her 7 a.m. alarm has been more jarring than usual. I havent socialized and I missed a birthday party for ac lose friend,Yount said. Paula Wade,41,a quality assurance tech for a company in Oklahoma City,Okla., was sure she wouldnt get sucked in. I mean,really,who w atches archery or table tennis? And yet there I am, c heering the Italians,or whoever,on. And now Im to the point that I have things auto-deleting off of the D VR. Sundays closing ceremon y and the end of the collective hangover cant come soon enough. I loveTeam USA,but I really need to get back to myr egular crap TV,she added. Paul Dergarabedian,a b ox-office analyst for Hollywood.com,said games came at just the right time,s o soon after the Colorado theater shooting that left 12 d ead and 58 others injured, and the slaying of six Sikh worshippers at a Wisconsint emple. Theres been some pretty terrible stuff in the news of l ate,he said. These Olympics are a welcome r elief from whats going on in the world. Its such an innately positive event. The uptick in viewing popularity,he said,also hast o do with NBCs coverage strategy of streaming online during the day,offering coverage on sister channels and highlighting big events at night,followed by a postmidnight recap. Let alone theu sual summer dearth of fresh programming elsewhere. This is an insomniacs dream come true, Dergarabedian said from Los Angeles. By JILL LAWLESS Associated PressL ONDON From the track to the ring to the sandp it,this crop of Olympians just cant stop the beat. The London Games have broughta n outpouring of crazy,creative victory celebrations.Funky jigsK enyan steeplechase winner Ezekiel Kemboi celebrated his gold medal with a hips wiveling,arm-shaking peacock dance for 80,000 people in the Olympic Stadium. At the ExCel center,U.S. boxing champ ClaressaS hields broke into a combination jig-and-fist-bump when she took gold in one of the first-ever Olympic womens boxing contests. O ver at the beach volleyball venue,American Misty M ay-Treanor a former Dancing With the Starsc ontestant broke into a funky jig in the sand as she celebrated winning gold with partner Kerri Walsh Jennings. I just had to get out there a nd let it out,May-Treanor said.Walk this wayTennis star Serena Williams celebrated Olympic gold with a Crip Walk af ancy-footwork dance that originated with the Los Angeles street gang and later spread around the world. Her sister Venus,sitting in the stands,looked delighted. Wimbledon,the very proper home of the All-England Lawn Tennis Association, had never seen anything like it,and a few commentators were not amused. It was just me,the U.S. medalist said later. I love to dance.CartwheelsWilliam wasnt the only champ to raise a few eyebrows. The gold-winning U.S. womens soccer team capped its victories with cartwheels,front flips and a team rendition of the worm sometimes even in the middle of a game. I wouldnt like it if our team did that,said New Zealand coach Tony Readings. We try to work on scoring goals. We havent got time to work on celebrations. His team lost to the Americans 2-0.The Incredible HulkGerman discus thrower Robert Hartings response to winning gold was not a dance so much as a force of nature. The 280-pound behemoth roared,ripped his shirt to shreds like the Incredible Hulk,grabbed a German flag, ran a lap of the track over the hurdles not too shabby, either,for such a big guy and then tried to wrench one of the burning torches from t he Olympic cauldron. The cauldron remained intact. His evening went downhill from there. The next morning Harting tweeted:Puuh i just got robbed while I did some work to please athletic fans! I lost all my accredition (sicVillage! no entrance. Maybe he could just bring a photo. The man is hard to miss.The legendBut in his celebrations as on the track,Usain Bolt is ina class by himself. The Jamaican sprinters trademark lightning bolt arm stretched to the sky as if hes about to shoot an arrow has taken over Olympic Park. Exuberant visitors w ere seen replicating the pose thousands of times as they poured out of Olympic Stadium after Bolt won the 200 meters Thursday night for his second gold of these games. Police officers in Bobby helmets,firefighters even London Mayor Boris Johnson,who certainly lacks the sprinters svelte physique have all joined in. Bolt himself shook up his celebration routine after the 200 meters. The self-proclaimed living legend glided across the finish line,placed an index finger to his lips in a silent reproach to those who had doubted him,then dropped to the track and did some push-ups.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, August 12, 2012Page 5B SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS; 5.542"; 21.5"; Black; spot red double truck 8/12/12; TELEVISION By FRAZIER MOORE A P Television WriterB EVERLY HILLS,Calif. Its the moment before the moment of truth. The new fall series are in the wings,just days or weeks fromb ursting into view and discovering their fate. Their stars,producers and network bosses are full of anticipation and resolve. Thats what the recent Television C ritics Association powwow was all about:Casts and execs parading before the nations TV reporters to get them stoked. Granted,many of the stars who hawked their show with suchc onviction were relying on blind faith. Most were still a f ew days from resuming production. Some hadnt even seen any u pcoming scripts. Their only firsthand knowledge was based o n the series pilot they shot months ago. But never mind the unknowns to be dealt with once they got back to work. T hey were excited that soon their show would reach the p ublic and,just maybe,catch fire and air for years,then reign forever in syndicated reruns aj ackpot that might bring them new or boosted fame and untold riches, e ven a place in the annals of great TV. The stakes are sky-high and, e ach fall,hope springs eternal. So does reasonable doubt for most of the stars. They know l aunching a series that clicks with viewers is like striking oil or taki ng gold at the Olympics. The painful truth is,the shows the stars came plugging at TCA will most likely be gone a year from now,when some of the samea ctors could be right back here promoting their next series those actors,that is,who are lucky enough to land another series so quickly. Consider Laura Benanti from the upcoming NBC comedy Go On, w ho a year earlier sat here on the dais in the Beverly Hilton Hotels grand ballroom as part of thee nsemble of NBCs The Playboy Club which was axed last fall after airing just three weeks. A longside her was Go Oncostar Matthew Perry,who last seas on was at TCA plugging his ABC sitcom Mr. Sunshine. During the Go Onsession one reporters question to him began with,A lot of people in this rooml iked Mr. Sunshine,whereupon Perry got laughs with a joke at his own expense:THIS is the room where people liked Mr. Sunshine? Mr. Sunshinecame and went in early 2011. Now Perry (whose n ew show got a sneak preview on Wednesday after NBCs Olympics coverage) is primed to take anothers wing. So is Anthony Anderson,whose many TV credits include the Fox d rama K-Ville,which lasted just a few weeks in fall 2007. N ow hes in the NBC sitcom Guys With Kids,and exuding positive energy. s the job that I have at hand, said Anderson at NBCs poolsidep arty,so I send nothing but positive energy to it. Thats the only way its going to be successful. You manifest your own destiny. Other actors have other coping techniques. Mindy Kaling,fresh from The O ffice,is the creator-writer-star of the Fox comedy The Mindy Project,which suggests she mightb e feeling extra waves of pressure. But theres good news,she said, for a multi-hyphenate:When y oure starring in a show youre also writing,you dont have extra t ime to do the neurotic things I would normally do,like obsess. ou get nervous as hell,confided series veteran Michael Chiklis,now back with Vegas,aC BS drama. I feel like this show is such a great thing,but Im mildly superstitious and afraid to be cocky. I dont want to get ahead of myself. Terry OQuinn,who scored belated TV stardom on Lost,now is headlining as a devilish landlordo n ABCs spooky thriller Park Avenue,and he takes nothing for granted. I feel very uncertain,not terribly well-balanced,he said with aw an smile,and having done this for a living for this long,thats a fairly normal state. I hope the show succeeds,but Ive become pretty philosophical about the numerous f ailures that one suffers in this business. For many stars,the best policy at a moment like this is to stay sharply focused on just doing the job,and let the rest o f the process take care of itself. Justin Bartha stars as one-half o f a committed gay couple in the NBC comedy The New Normal, and while declaring his pride in thes how he confessed,I dont even know when it will air,to be hone st. Everybody is cautiously optimistic,said his co-star Andrew Rannells (a Tony winner for the hit musical The Book of Mormon),a dding with cautious optimism, our fingers are crossed. J ordana Spiro,who formerly starred in the TBS comedy My Boys,insisted that right now shem eans to keep my head down and do good work and not look like a s chmuckon her new Fox drama, The Mob Doctor. But after it premieres,that could c hange. If people really respond to it I may get a bit dizzy and say, Whoa,wait a second! This is kind of a big deal! M eanwhile,nothing can hold back JoAnna Garcia Swisher. A star of the NBC sitcom Animal Practice(which gets a post-Olympics preview onS unday),she already is dreaming about a big deal. Im always hoping for the best, thats my personality,she explained with a grin. Im already thinking about syndication! New shows stars are full of hope but nervous, too MCT TV fans will be hunting for h its this fall.

This majestic bird is a c ommon sight in Highlands County. It may be viewed soaring in the sky or poised near the water looking for food. Great blues are the largest North Americanh eron and can range from head to tail 38 to 54 inches w ith a wingspan of 66 to 70 inches and a height of 45 to 54 inches. These huge birdsa re found throughout most of North America near fresh or s alt water,flooded meadows, lake edges and shorelines. Ardea Herodias,more commonly called great blue heron,is a wading bird gen-e rally found in or near the water. These long-legged b irds may appear bluish-gray from a distance. They have a wide black stripe over theire yes,red-brown thighs,and r usty-gray necks with a white face. They sport a yellow bill and gray legs. In flight,this bird will curl its neck into an Sshape withi ts wings outstretched and legs beyond the tail. While flying,these graceful birds have very slow wing beats. Great blue herons dine on m ostly fish; however they are opportunistic feeders and will also make a meal out of insects,rodents,small mammals,amphibians,reptiles,c rustaceans and even small birds. They hunt by sight and generally swallow their prey whole. These large creatures wade slowly in the shalloww ater and stand like a statue while stalking their prey. T heir long legs allow them to wade in the water,and their widespread,narrowt oes keep them from sinking into the mud. Once they h ave located their future meal,they strike with lightning speed. Thrusting their neck and head forward they stab the unfortunate preyw ith their sharp,strong bill. The harsh croak these h erons make is quite loud especially during breeding season. Great blues usuallyb reed in colonies in trees located near water. Their nests are made up of sticks and twigs lined with softm aterial. It is usually constructed in a tall tree,but s ome birds build in the reeds or a cliff edge. The female lays three to s even eggs,which hatch in about one month. Usually o ne brood is raised per year; however,the female can lay replacement eggs if hers have been destroyed or disturbed. Great blues usuallyn est in the same spot every year and may even use the s ame nest. The male heron chooses the nesting site and suppliest he female with the necessary materials to build the nest. She then constructs a three-by-three foot nest up ina high tree to keep her eggs and chicks safe from predat ors. It takes the parents about a week to get the nest done,but they continue tow ork on it throughout incubation and even after the e ggs have hatched. Emerging from the pale blue eggs,the young chicks hatch over a period of several days. The first to hatch isu sually the dominate chick in the nest and will most l ikely be aggressive with its siblings. The young birds will stay in the nest fora bout two months. T he young are fed by both parents. The adults regurgitate the food and feed it to the chicks. Birds that are feeding their babies may eatu p to four times as much food than they normally do. As hatchlings,young great blue herons may be preyed upon by various predators.H owever,once they reach adulthood,due to their large size,very few animals prey on them. Some of the birds brave enough to go aftert hese huge birds include bald eagles,golden eagles,great horned owls and red-tailed hawks. These carnivorous birds usually live about 15 yearsa nd are not generally social creatures. Since they need a l arge amount of food,they like to keep large areas to themselves. However,whenb reeding season approaches, the birds begin to gather in c olonies which can range from just a few to hundreds of birds. Even though great blues dont mate for life,they doh ave a very unique courtship. These rituals may f orm strong bonds in couples,allowing them to successfully raise their young.S ome of the mating rituals i nclude bill snapping,moaning,preening,circular flights,exchanging twigs, crest raising and bill duels. Males might fight overf emales but not to the death as other species do. Great blue herons are fairly hardy creatures; however human inventions and inter-a ction have caused some problems for the creatures. Power lines,pesticides,plastic waste and monofilament fishing line all pose threatst o the survival to these magnificent creatures. When they are nesting and hatching young,they are extremely sensitive to human intervention and will abandon theirn ests if disturbed. Development of conservat ion and wetland habitats are also wreaking havoc on the species. Great blue heronsa re protected by the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1 918. It is illegal to capture, possess,or cause harm to these birds,their nests or eggs. Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department.

Painting Tips Consider using a combination paint and primer it can save you time and money by eliminating the need to use two painting products. Work from the ceiling down to the baseboards. Do o ne entire wall or area at a time. Use wide masking tape t o mask off areas you dont want to paint,such as wind ow panes or trim. Use a roller to paint in blocks of roughly 4 x 4 feet.P aint adjacent blocks before each previous block dries to help blend the edges. Paint molding and woodwork with a brush,in t he direction of the wood grain. Use short strokes to coat the surface,then use longer,smoother strokes for an even and finished surface. Make sure the room is well ventilated as you paint. Pick a paint that dries quickly and has low odor,so your child can move into the newly painted space sooner.

Farmer Greg Guenther said the plant goes into a defensive mode when it rolls its own leaves, reducing the surface area to the sun and protecting its remaining moisture. ST. LOUIS (APThe government slashed its expectations for U.S. corn ands oybean production for the second consecutive month Friday,predicting what could be t he lowest average corn yield in more than 15 years as the worst drought in decades grips major farm states. N onetheless,Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack,in a statement supplied exclusively to The A ssociated Press,insisted U.S. farmers and ranchers remain r esilient and the country will continue to meet demand as the global leader in farm exports and food aid. The U.S. Agriculture Department cut its projected U.S. corn production to 10.8 billionb ushels,down 17 percent from its forecast last month of nearly 13 billion bushels and 13 percent less than last year. That also would be the lowest production since 2006. The USDA,in its World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report,now expects corn growers to average 123.4 bushels per acre,down 24 bushels from lasty ear in what would be the lowest average yield in 17 years. S oybean production is now forecast at 2.69 billion bushels,a 12 percent decline from last year and well off the 3.05 billionb ushels the USDA had expected last month. The expected average yield of 36.1 bushels per acre w ould be the lowest since 2003. Corn farmers had expected a r ecord year just months ago,when they sowed 96.4 million acres the most since 1937. The USDA now predicts only 87.4 million acres will be harvested,although it notes thec rop still could be the eighth-biggest in U.S. history. On Thursday,the U.N. food agency drew a direct correlation between price hikes in basic food commodities and the months of parched conditions in farm states. USDA cuts corn outlook as drought takes toll on farm states Special to the News-SunLAKELAND Twenty years ago,on Aug. 1,1992 D. Kevin Jones began hisp osition as President and CEO of then MidFlorida Schools Federal Credit Union,a financial institution still in its fledgling state. Although in busi-n ess 38 years before hiring the new CEO,the s chool-based credit union serving Highlands and Polk edu-c ational systems h ad $100 million in assets, only five branchesa nd was struggling to rebound f rom a difficult economy.The credit union had a good base buth ad experienced only modest growth. I n August of 1992, armed with the experience from his previous vicep resident of finance position at an Indiana-based credit union and a youthf ul exuberance and passion for what he saw M idFlorida could be, Jones began his career with MidFlorida. I am excited at the challenge and opportunity to maket he most out of MidFloridas strengths. The geographical area and membership base,already MidFlorida recognizes milestones J ones S ee MFCU,page 6C W hen the DoNot-Call Implementation Act of 2003 was passed,it was sup-p osed to herald a new era of silence as in,no more annoying dinnertime telemarketing calls. Based ont he number of unsolicited calls o ur household still receives nearly a decade later,however,Id say thel aw has had only mixed success. T rue,the sheer volume of calls did drop significantly after we registered our home and cell phone numbers with the FederalT rade Commissions National Do Not Call R egistry. But because so many types of organizations are exempt from thel egislation and so many shady companies flout the r ules,everyone I know still gets pestered relentlessly. There are steps you can t ake to curtail annoying calls; and just as important, ways to avoid falling for t elemarketing scams: First,if you havent a lready done so,register your phone numbers with the registry,either online at www.donotcall.gov or by calling 888-382-1222 frome ach phone you wish to enroll. Although its illegal for telemarketers to call wireless phones,you may want to register them just in case. B e aware that certain organizations are exempt from the Do Not Call regulationsb arring contact. Charities,political organizations, telephone surveyors and companies with which youved one business in the last 18 months ( and their affiliates and business partners) are still allowed to contacty ou unless you specifically request to be removed from t heir lists. Telemarketers have up to 31 days to update their lists,so if you're not currently registered it couldt ake that long for calls to cease. After that,you can f ile complaints about unwanted calls at the Do Not Call website or phonen umber. Remember, though:Debt collectors m ay continue to call you, whether or not your number is registered. H ere are a few additional tips for reducing call volume: Use Caller ID to screen incoming calls. By law, t elemarketers must use some iteration of their business name in their onscreen ID,but many unscrupulous organizationsw ill attempt to spoofyou by providing misleading identifying information.

The credit union was at a tipping point. Kevin con-v inced us that lowering loan rates and adding an advertising plan would show i mprovement in the credit unions bottom line quickly. W e had our reservations but decided his plan was worth pursuing to grow and strengthen the organization for the future.Soon after,t he company adopted a community bank approach and worked diligently to adjust to market needs by developing new products and services, focusing on customer service,convenience,and of course,rates. With effort on the part of a ll employees and oversight of the board,MidFlorida f lourished year after year under Jonesdirection. Many of the staff,seniorm anagers and board members in place when I started with t he credit union,or who joined soon after,still work with MidFlorida. That conti-n uity,along with a willingness of the team to support my initiatives,has made all t he difference,Jones said. MidFlorida has enjoyed great s uccess,but that success would not have been possible without a great team,from the popcorn ladies to the chairman of the board,hea dded. The stats of MidFloridas success are staggering:over 1,700 percent increase in assets (including the two proposed mergers),3,100 percent increase in capital (from less than $6 million to over $189 million),an expandeds ervice area (serving all or portions of 14 Central F lorida counties),38 branches and more than 600 employees (from an employ-e e base of 75 in 1992) all while receiving consecutive h igh reviews from state and federal regulatory agencies during Jonestenure. I am proud of what we have accomplished so far butI still see tremendous potent ial for our company and am still motivated to see where w e can go and what we can offer.The new expansion areas will transform MidFlorida into a regional credit union.

Story. It goes like this: Dwight Howard travels to Los Angeles for back surgery four months ago, walks around Beverly Hills each day as part of his rehabilitation program, and routinely meets the same woman along the route. She would say, Come to the Lakers, come to the Lakers,Howard said. If shes watching, Im here. Your wish came true. Sure did. So did his hes out of Orlando. It took four teams, 11 other players, five draft picks and countless rounds of talks over many months, but the Orlando Magic decided that Friday was the right time to start over without the NBAs best center and end a saga that has dogged the franchise for what seems like an eternity. Howard is off to play alongside Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles, after a megadeal involving the Lakers, Magic, Philadelphia and Denver was worked out Thursday and completed Friday after the NBA reviewed and approved the particulars. It was just a very tough situation for everybody to let go, Howard said. Im finally glad that its over with. Myself and the Magic organization, we can all start over and begin a new career. Today is a fresh new start for all of us. As far as the other headliners involved, Andrew Bynum leaves the Lakers for Philadelphia and Andre Iguodala is heading to Denver. Are we taking a step back? Absolutely, we are, Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said. But were taking a step back with a vision. Even while otherwise busy at the London Olympics, Bryant quickly proclaimed that the Lakers are locked and loaded to bring back the title. He spoke with Howard on Friday morning, and interrupted his pursuit of a gold medal the Americans will play for another of those Sunday to talk about how the Lakers look very much like a major contender for another NBAtitle. Ill probably play two or three more years. Then the team is his, Bryant said. Im excited for the franchise because now they have a player that can carry the franchise well after Im gone. This should be his and he should want to accept that challenge. Time will tell. Howard, who may not be ready for the start of the season while continuing to recover from back surgery that he had performed in Los Angeles four months ago, plans to become a free agent next July. He could stay with the Lakers. He could end up in Dallas, which should have oodles of cap space. Maybe the Brooklyn Nets one of Howards preferred destinations throughout this saga find a way into the mix again. I told him this is a great place for him, Bryant said. ou talk about all the great Dwight Howard to Lakers in 4-team, 12-player deal See HOWARD, Page 5D MCTphoto Dwight Howard, left, is introduced to the media as the newest member of the Los Angeles Lakers by General Manager Mitch Kupchak at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California, on Friday, August 10.

Courtesy photo H ead coach Dean Frazier gives David DeGenaro a congratul atory hug after his Sebring All-Stars made another long run in the Dixie World Series. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKEPLACID The waning days of summer are upon us. Well, at least for those of the gridiron who are now out on the various practice fields getting ready for a seasont hat is less than three weeks away. The Lake Placid Green Dragons were finishing up t heir first week Friday, as head coach Jason Holden e nters his fifth season at the h elm as the longest-running head coach in the county, and looks to build from last seasons 2-8 mark. s a new year and were working hard, he said. Our motto this season is One More.No matter how tired we are, what the situation is, you can always do one more. Which seems to be at least the case at the most important position, quarterback, where Robert Walton is progressing from his handful of starts as a sophomore last year. s grown and gotten bigger, Holden said. And hes also really been makingt he mental plays. Hes done a lot of work and learned to make better decisions. Were still going to run the ball a l ot, running the wing formation, but were hoping to t hrow the ball some more this y ear too. The running game will see a multi-faceted attack with a number of different options. Marquavian Copeland, Jerry Fields and big-play threat Foster Walker will all see their share of touches and will be looking for holes provided by a big, though inexperienced line. ere real young there, with two sophomores and just one senior, assistant coach John Merlo said. We do have some size there though, we are pretty decent size wise. Names like Malikae McClean, Connor Wrenn and Christian Miller were nameda mong those who will be looked on to pave the way on offense and plug the holes along the front on defense. T he defensive backfield will also see some speed a dded as state qualifying hurd ler Keplet Charite will be manning a cornerback slot, while Ricky Miller will add toughness at safety. And while the dawn of a new season brings about hope and while improvements are being seen, it will again be a tough road through the District 6-4Aschedule. Dragons gearing up See LP, Page 6D B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAround 10 years separate the oldest to the youngest, but one common bond joined together dozens of Highlands County baseball players this summer. T he once-in-a-lifetime experiences of winning a state championship and earning a trip to the Dixie World Series. Of particular note, obviously, were this years Dixie Junior Boys state champions, who were making it their fourth such experience in a row. But its worth noting the remarkable acheivements of all. The two older teams that earned the distinction of s tate champion, were a hodgepodge of local talent. The Pre-Majors and Majors squads time-worn, well-honed teams that had been playing together over the years. Rather, especially in the case of the Majors squad, they had been playing against one another over the years as old rivals Avon Park and Sebring came together for the common cause of representing the county. With sparing practice time t ogether, as well as some former Blue Streaks getting over the discomfort of donning the Team Heartland red, they knocked off a bigger rival to each, and seemingly annual Florida state representative, Polk County. Sure, the Pre-Majors roster was predominantly fami liar with one another as Avon Park teammates, with two Green Dragons added to bo lster it. But again, this was new territory for them, prepping for a state tournament when most would normally be in the midst of a summer, trav el league schedule, or merely enjoying the couple months of freedom. Well-done World Series runs See DIXIE, Page 3D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt was the second to last event of the season Thursday, as the Sertoma Tour took to the Country Club of Sebring course under sweltering conditions. But as the temperatures went up, the scores reflected the season-long improvement across the board. Along the undulating fairways, not to mention greens, of the Country Club course, strong scores were brought in for each age group of the tour. The 82, 84 and 86 turned in by Sarah Liles, Savan Fisher and Chloe Nelson, respectively, would be contending scores ordinarily. But that trio would have to settle for a relatively distant second, third and fourth as they are in the 14-18 Girls group with no ordinary player. Aweek removed from her one-under 71 at Torrey Pines, and less than two weeks from her foray at the U.S. Kids Teen World Championships at Pinehurst, Kendall Griffin once again broke par, carding a blazing 69 over 18 holes for the win. In the 17-18 Boys, Colin Walkup didnt break par, but was well withing sight of it as his 75 held up for the win, while Will Bennett scored an 84 for second and Blake Fitch an 89 for third. Cole Berger took the top spot in the 15-16 Boys with another 75, staying just out of reach of the 78 brought in by Nic Staffieri in one of the days closer contests. Just three more shots back was Rhett Pooley with an 81, with Easton Davis82 right in the mix, along with Trenton Farrows 85. Another close race was seen in the 13-14 Boys with Sam Rogers 82 narrowly edging Coleman Nelsons 83, while Sam Weber-Callahan came in with an 89 for third and Jason Cannon a 90 for fourth. Ashley Engle continued her strong season, winning the 11-12 Girls with a 54 over a challenging nine holes, with Alyssa Armentrout working her way from a late joining of the tour and taking second with a 72. Another 54 also took the win in the 11-12 Boys age group, with Joseph Flood doing the honors, while Clayton Osha carded a 63 for second and John David Spiegel a 75 for third. The back and forth battle in the 9-10 Boys was ever compelling as Billy Carol got back into the top spot this week, halting Beckham Donovans multi-week winning streak, as he scored a 46 to Donovans 55. Zach Doorlag wasnt too much further back, with a 57 for third, while Jackson Griffin was fourth Sertoma keeps the heat on See GOLF, Page 4D

Then there were the youngsters in the AAAand Ozone ranks. Some still new to the sport itself, most not familiar with the tension and stage of a state tournament, much less the business and pressure ofa trip to a World Series. And yet they all did it. Five different groups of ballplayers, home-grown sons, from this little neck of the woods in central Florida, made the cut and were off to different locales to represent the state on the biggest Dixie Baseball stage. Vying against champions, and sometimes runners up as well, from the 10 other Dixie states. The results were a mixed back, as it turned out. One team went two and out in the double elimination bracket format, with one other reaching the third round before bowing out. Another squad reached the Final Four of itstournament, while two wound up falling just short in the championship round. And even the quickest exit among the five teams saw the two games lost by a total of four runs. Anyone not in the know might look at the brackets from each of the World Series and notice that, hey, those Florida teams were alla pretty tough out. And they might comment that Florida must have some pretty good ballplayers down there. What they wouldnt know, necessarily, is that by saying that, they are also saying, Highlands County has some pretty good ballplayers down there. As the events of this summer showed, we certainly do. Dan Hoehne is the Sports Editor for the News-Sun. He can be reached at daniel.hoehne@newssun.com. Continued from 1D Dixe runs give Highlands its due A ssociated PressMIAMI Rookie Ryan Tannehill suddenly has less competition to be the starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. Tannehill completed 14 of 21 passes for 167 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to tight end Charles Clay in the third quarter for Miamis only score in a 20-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday. David Garrard, who was listed first on the depth chart, is injured. His agent, Al Irby, confirmed Friday that Garrard will undergok nee surgery and miss up to a m onth. Tannehill could be closing the gap on Matt Moore, who started the last 12 games last year for Miami (No. 27 in the APPro32) and was second on the depth chart behind Garrard. Despite Moores edge in experience, first-year Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said the gap between Moore and Tannehill wasnt very big. Its relatively close, probably Philbin said. Moore was impressed with Tannehill. The kid went out there and moved the ball and put us in the end z one when we were in the red zone, Moore said. I know hes g ood and hes talented and hes got the build and mindset you want in a q uarterback. I just need to focus on my job and getting better and the rest will take care of itself. Tannehill, taken eighth overall in the draft, is the Dolphinsquarterback of the future, but hes hoping to convince his coaches to make him a starter right away. He had a strong start on Friday night. s poised, Clay said. I was surprised at how calm he was. He was in the huddle, laughing and joking around at times. Coming in as a rookie, having his first game, you could just tell he was out there having fun. Before his TD pass, a strike down the middle, Tannehill had a touchdown pass to wide receiver Roberto Wallace late in the second quarter overturned by instant replay. Two plays later, Tannehill missed Clay near the sideline on a fourthand-goal from the 3-yard line. H e was 8 for 9 on his touchdown d rive, the highlight was a nice touch pass to Wallace over a linebacker for 19 yards on third-and-11. The only incompletion on the drive was a pass that was batted down at the line of scrimmage. Tannehill, who finished the game with a 106.6 passer rating, entered w ith 3:16 left in the second quarter to the applause of a sparse crowd still sitting despite a driving rain. His first pass, on third-and-6, was thrown behind wide receiver Julius Pruitt and led to a three-and-out. I just have to go out and play my best, Tannehill said. Its small steps and just trying to be the best I can be. At the end of the camp, its up to the coaches. Philbin declined comment on Garrards injury. A long with Garrard, Dolphins starting linebacker Kevin Burnett also missed Friday nights game despite taking part in warmups. Backup offensive lineman Nate G arner was helped off the field in the fourth quarter after sustaining an ankle injury. M oore got the start in Garrards place and completed 7 of 12 passes f or 79 yards with one interception for a rating of 43.4. M oore had some tough luck. He produced three first downs on his first drive, only to see Chad Johnson let a pass go through his hands on third-and-3 from the Tampa Bay 33. It was the only pass thrown in Johnsons direction. ouve got to make those catches and move those chains, Philbin said. Thats a perfect illustration of why the outcome ended up as what it was. Moores final pass midway t hrough the second quarter was intercepted by rookie linebacker Lavonte David, but the ball was tipped at the line of scrimmage by d efensive tackle Frank Okam. For the most part, I thought it went pretty smooth, Moore said. I thought we moved the ball well. We just need to tighten down some t hings. Ive just got to focus on getting better day in and day out. With t he reps I get, Ive got to do well. The Dolphinssecond-round pick of the 2012 draft, tackle Jonathan Martin, also got extended playing time but had an up-and-down performance. Martin started at right tackle and played into the third quarter, long after the other starting offensive linemen left the game. Martin held up well in pass protection but also was flagged for two false starts. For Tampa Bay (No. 27 g ame was a good start under new head coach Greg Schiano. The Bucs looked sharp offensively at the start of the game, scoring t ouchdowns on their first two possessions to take a 14-0 lead. e put a lot into it all the way, d ating back to way back in the spring, defensive tackle Gerald M cCoy said. It was our first chance to showcase it. I think we d id a fairly decent job. Starting quarterback Josh Freeman left the game after playing only one series, completing 4 of 5 passes for 41 yards. LeGarrette Blount finished off the drive with a 1-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-goal. Bucs first-round pick Dou g Martin scored on a 2-yard run on Tampa Bays next drive and finished with 21 yards on seven carries. D avid, the Bucssecond-round pick, had a nice preseason debut in his hometown. In addition to his interception, he a lso had a tackle for loss and a special teams tackle. Hes done a real good job since weve started and I think he continu ed that tonight, Schiano said. He flew around out there. He looked c omfortable, which is great. And for him to do it in his hometown is fun, too. Tampa Bays third-quarter field goal was set up by a 74-yard kickoff return by rookie seventh-round pick Michael Smith, a running back from Utah State.

C M Y K B y EDDIE PELLS Associated PressLONDON U.S. Olympic leaders and their athletes are having such a great time at the London Games, theyd like to hosta party like this, too, someday soon. e think the games need to come to America, and the sooner, the better Larry Probst, chairman of the U.S. Olympic C ommittee, said Saturday at a news conference. When the team returns home, a USOC panel will look into whether the federation should bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics or the 2026 Winter Games. The United States hasnt hosted the Olympics since the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City and hasnt hosted a Summer Olympics since 1996 in Atlanta. With 41 medals left to be awarded at the Olympics as of Saturday afternoon, the United States had won both the most overall (95 gold (41 Pleased as he was with that, USOC CEO Scott Blackmun also noted that Britain was in third place in the gold-medal countw ith 26 part of its best medal haul since the 1908 London Olympics. H e acknowledged that competing on home turf can provide the home countrys athletes with a huge boost. It really gives the athletes life, Blackmun said. e expect Brazil will have quite a few athletes that will rise to the podium and have lifetime bests in four years at the Rio Games. s a fact of life in the Olympic world, Blackmun said. Its one of the reasons wed like to host the games in the U.S. in the not-too-distant future. Americas last two bid cities New York for 2012 and Chicago for 2016 were roundly rejected by the International Olympic Committee. The USOC decided to pass on bidding for t he 2020 Games while it shored up its international relationships and resolved its long-running feud with the IOC about revenue sharing. Earlier this summer, the revenue issue was resolved and the USOC got serious about getting into the bid game again. The bid committee is expected to give its first r eport to the full USOC board at its quarterly meeting in December. Among the key issues will be whether to go for the Winter or Summer Games. Possible winter cities would include Denver, Bozeman, Mont., and Lake Tahoe. Summer candidates could include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco. ed like to pull off a games just the way London did, Blackmun said. We need to talk about, should it be should it be 6, what kind of city should we look at? But we definitely look at this experience as something wed aspire to.

Brody Hall was third with a 37, and dueling 40s saw a three-way tie for fourth between Jack DuPriest, Griffin Hall and Ian Frasier. The strong, as well as close, scores throughout the field are testament to the widespread talent being nurtured along on the Sertoma Tour. Which should make for a wild closing event, the twoday Tour Championship at Sun N Lake Friday and Saturday, Aug. 17 and 18. The event counts for double the points of the normal weekly events, which should lay the framework for much shuffling and shifting among the age group leaders. The Turtle Run course will be played Friday, with the tour wrap-up hitting the Deer Run course for all the marbles on Saturday.

The striker added the second with a firm header off a free kick in the 75th. Hulk scored for Brazil in injury time, but it was too late for a comeback. Brazil, the big favorite heading into the tournament, was also trying to win its first gold, which is the only soccer trophy the five-time world champions havent won. Mexico beats Brazil to win 1st Olympic soccer gold By DAVID BAUDER Associated PressNBC Sports is telecasting the final two days of the O lympic boxing tournament without announcers Bob Papa and Teddy Atlas in the arena following a dispute with international boxing officials. The International Boxing Association asked Papa and Atlas to move from their seats close to ringside to a broadcast booth farther away because they were very disturbing to boxing officials, even during bouts they weren ot calling, said the groups spokesman, Sebastien Gillot. He said the broadcasters claimed they didnt want tos tay anyway because no U.S. boxers were in the running. I s not clear why Papa and Atlas, who have at times been c ritical of the boxing judges and referees during the tourn ament, were suddenly judged too disturbing with only two days of boxing remaining. There are two sides to every story, NBC Sports spokesman Greg Hughes said. e will address the matter with the IOC after the games conclude. The NBC announcers will call the remaining 10 boxing matches off video piped into the International Broadcast Center in London. Thats not an unusual setup: many NBC announcers for some of the lower-profile Olympic sports call the games from a studio in New York. NBC said Saturday that its boxing reporter, Russ Thaler, will remain in the ExCel center in London for the concluding fights. NBCs status as the largest international rights holder had g iven the networks announcers prime seats relatively close to the ring. Other announcers worked out of booths farther back, which is where the boxing association told Papa and Atlas to move. Papa and Atlas have been critical of how international boxing rules, including the requirement of headgear for boxers and a point system based strictly on how many punches land, have turned the Olympic matches into fencing with gloves. They were particularly vehement in their thoughts during a bantamweight match involving Japans Satoshi Shimizu and Azerbaijans Magomed Abdulhamidov. The referee did not rule Abdulhamidov knocked out despite the fighter hitting the canvas six times, leading Atlas to proclaim that referee Ishanguly Meretnyyazov of Turkmenistan was favoring the Azerbaijain fighter. Everyone here should look at themselves and realize why this sport is considered a joke at this point, Papa said during his play-by-play. Judges declared Abdulhamidov the winner. The decision was later overturned on appeal and the referee expelled from the Olympics. Papa, during an interview on Friday, said he and Atlas sit ringside and sometimes second-guess themselves when they see some inexplicable decisions. What did I just look at there? Am I crazy? And Im sure that viewers feel the same way ere trying to give the viewer some insight on what were seeing based on our area of expertise, he said. One of the reasons weve pointed out these inconsistencies in the refereeing and inconsistences in the scoring is because there are a lot of athletes with amazing stories who have had the rugs pulled out from under them in these Olympics. Once one of the most popular Olympic sports on television, boxing has slipped markedly in influence. In the United States, boxing is confined to the CNBC network. Although womens boxing was added this year, and produced gold medalist Claressa Shields of Flint, Mich., the American mens team is going home without a medal for the first time in the Olympics. The final 10 fights are medal-deciding bouts for the men. NBC continues boxing without announcers in arena Am I crazy? And Im sure that viewers feel the same way. BOBPAPA NBC boxing announcer

Now hes the next in line. Bryant said the Lakers should be poised to win now. The Magic, they might not be saying that for years. After an offseason when the Magic fired coach Stan Van Gundy and general manager Otis Smith, theyre now truly beginning anew. In 1996, the Magic watched Shaquille ONeal sign as a free agent with the Lakers. At least this time, when they lost someone with the Superman nick-n ame, they got something back. Next season, and really subsequent seasons, are going to be about getting better every day, Hennigan said. Orlando got guard Arron Afflalo and forward Al Harrington from Denver, forward Moe Harkless and center Nikola Vucevic from P hiladelphia, and forward Josh McRoberts and guard Christian Eyenga from the Lakers. The Lakers acquired Howard, guard Chris Duhon and forward Earl Clark from Orlando. The Magic also traded guard Jason Richardson to Philadelphia. Orlando also gets five draft picks over five years. There will be no panic, Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. There will be no chaos. T he Lakers pulled off the deal and somehow kept Pau Gasol in the process something many didnt expect when Los Angeles first start-e d getting mentioned in the Howard trade mix. It makes the NBAthat much more exciting, Knicks forward and U .S. Olympian Carmelo Anthony said. Not everyone shared that sentiment. I really dont care, Thunder star Kevin Durant said. The trade was announced during the Spain-Russia semifinal matchup at the Olympics. G asol scored 16 points, helping the Spanish team reach the gold medal game with a 67-59 win. A fterward, that seemed secondary. He was still with the Lakers, and now has the games most dominant big man alongside him. For a moment, gold-medal talk was pushed aside for NBAtitle c hatter. I think its something that puts us in a position of being an extremely powerful team and a team with all the chances of going for the ring again, Gasol said. The 76ers got involved in trade talks about a month ago, first reaching out to the Magic to inquire about landing Howard themselves. Not long after realizing that wouldnt happen, the talks grew. And when Denver got involved, the pieces fell into place, although Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said he wasnt sure a deal w ould happen 48 hours before things actually got done. One of the things we needed to do was we needed to get a post presence, a guy who can score on the low block, give us size, rebounding, d efense, said 76ers coach Doug Collins, in London working with NBC as an analyst for Olympic basketball. e think that Andrew is one of the top two NBAcenters in the league, so were thrilled about doing that. And were sad to lose Andre. He helped us win a lot of games and in the two years that Ive been with him. Collins wont wait long to see Iguodala in another uniform: The Nuggets open the season in Philadelphia on Oct. 31. Philadelphia believes it would have a chance to keep Bynum long term, noting that hes a native of neighboring New Jersey. eve gotten bigger, weve gotten stronger and weve gotten more a thletic than we were at this time last year, 76ers President Rod Thorn said. Andrew is the best center in the East. Anytime youh ave the best center, its a real plus. This is still a game that big men are v ery, very important in. For the Lakers to get Howard, they needed to give up the All-Star center Bynum theyve nur-t ured since he was a 17-year-old draft pick. After two straight second-round exits from the playoffs, the Lakers tore apart a very good team this summer in an attempt to build a great one a team that can give Bryant, a five-time NBAchampion who turns 34 next week, the chance to match Michael Jordans six rings next year. Andrew is a bright, hard-working man whos going to have a very successful and productive NBA career. And we wish him well in Philadelphia, Kupchak said. The Lakers already made one s plash in this offseason, getting Steve Nash from Phoenix. So they got better at point guard, and did the same at center. Now the Lakers may have a roster that would rival the NBAchampion Miami Heat, Western Conference champ Oklahoma City and the rest of the NBAs best. s crazy. It hasnt really hit me yet, Howard said. Im just happy to be here and Im going to make the best out of it. The Lakersstarting lineup now i ncludes five former All-Stars with three MVPawards and four defensive player of the year awards. Unreal! Bryant said. Denver was thrilled to add I guodala, who in turn said he was excited for whats next. s not often you get the opportunity to improve your team by adding an All-Star player like Andre Iguodala, Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri said. Hes an Olympian, a great defender and a great all-around player The Magic get a second-round d raft pick from Denver next year, a first-round pick from either Denver or New York in 2014, a conditional first-round pick from Philadelphia and a conditional second-round pick from the Lakers in 2015, and a c onditional first-round pick from the Lakers in 2017. Orlando also will have a $17.8 million trade exception to use over the next year. Howard averaged 20.6 points an d 14.5 rebounds in 54 regular-season games for Orlando last season. In eight seasons with the Magi c, he averaged 18.4 points and 13.0 rebounds. He entered last year as the subject o f trade rumors, especially since he could have opted out of his deal at seasons end and become a free agent. He decided that he would n ot exercise that option, then found himself in another mess in April w hen Van Gundy said team officials told him that Howard wanted him fired. Howard denied it. Ultimately, it didnt matter. Van Gundys gone, Smith is gon e, and now so is Howard. Sometimes, things dont work out the way everyone hopes, and I think that was the case here, Hennigan said. We tried to establish a relationship with Dwight that was built on interpersonal exchanges. We always felt like that may evolve in one direction or a nother Turns out, that direction w as west.

Clewiston was really big last year and should be again, Dunbar and Booker have great speed and Im pretty sure Dunbar was pretty y oung last year too. And Avon Park always has talent and with a new coach this year, who knows what theyll bring. The year gets started with a visit from Celebration on F riday, Aug. 31 before a h ome and away against Moore Haven and Cardinal Mooney the following two weeks. The Dragons then play at Dunbar in a district contest Sept. 21 and travel to Lakeland Christian the following Friday. Then comes the crux of the district schedule at home versus Booker on Oct. 5, at Avon P ark Oct. 12, home against Clewiston Oct. 19 and at LaBelle Oct. 26. That schedule seems that much tougher when its realized that the bye week doest come until the district runi s done.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING With the commencement of yet another school year on the horizon, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast has been working to collect school supplies over the course of the summer months to provide to children in our community to ensure they were well equipped to take on their upcoming scholastic endeavors. To cap off recent beautification efforts at their local office, 279 U.S. 27 in the Village Fountain Plaza, the office hosted its first Back to School Open Houseto distribute all of the supplies collected. The office enhancements were generously contributed by Lowes, and local Lowes employees selflessly donated their time to aid in the remodel work conducted over the last weeks. This year was especially rewarding for the incoming students as not only were the standard school supplies donated, but they were also the proud recipients of brand new backpacks to start their year off right. Thanks to the massive amount of donations received this year, what is normally a small event to simply pass out school supplies on an individual basis, turned into an event requiring a night dedicated to school readiness. In total 75 backpacks, filled with everything necessary for a successful school year, were given out to deserving children. Asurplus of supplies was also able to be passed out due to the vast amount of community support received this year. This would not have been possible without the generous contributions from the Highlands County Board of County Commission, Highlands County Sheriffs Office, Highlands County Tax Collectors Office, Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Office, Highlands County Courthouse, Champion for Children Foundation, and public information officer for Highlands County, Gloria Rybinski. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast would not have been able to achieve such success in their annual school supply drive had it not been for the tireless commitment from this great community. All of the school supplies raised enabled us to give promising futures to our local youth. By investing in the lives of our children we are making a substantial investment in their future and that of our community. Together we are starting something big, and helping them reach their potential to flourish, said Kiko Vazquez, BBBS community resource director.

Gold Buyers Direct is relatively new to the mall, and B ath & Body Works has recently revamped the entire store and have introduced a new line of merchandise. Kmart is a strong store in the mall that always ranks as one of the top Kmarts in its region. The mall has some terrific restaurants; the Cancun Grill serves up delicious Mexican food and desserts and the USADeli features sub sandwiches and ice cream. The Lakeshore Mall was developed and is run by CBLMalls & Associates and has more than 150 properties, including 88 indoor malls. Cheek said that at CBLs Annual Conference, Lakeshore Mall won an award for 2010 for the highest sales increase for malls less than 750,000 square feet, with the Lakeshore Mall having about 500,000.

Such is the voting power of gun owners who have been scared by a phony narrative that suggests any measure of gun control is cert ainly the first step to inevitable serfdom ... Even facing down the t hreat of al-Qaida has not been a binary choice between liberty and oppression,but, r ather,a balancing of rights and security,neither of which i s worth much without the other. The trick is in striking a r easonable balance. This week,U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy,D-N.Y., and U.S. Sen. Sen. Frank Lautenberg,D-N.J.,proposed one reasonable step,which would be to stop the online sale of ammunition. Under the proposed Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act,only licensed dealers would be allowed to sell ammunition and they would be required to report any sale of more than 1,000 rounds to an unlicensed person. Buyers of ammunition would be required to show photo identification. Its a modest step. It offers no guarantees against future f irearm carnage. But neither does it impinge on the right of someone with a legitimate use to obtain ammunition without much fuss. But we have seen since Sept. 11,2001,that one strong hedge against terrorism of all kinds is the common sense intervention of a verage citizens when their warning bells go off that something just isnt right. Thats a hedge that is not infallible. The accused in the Colorado shootings reportedly bought weapons face-toface without any dealer raising questions. But James Holmes also received some 40 packages by delivery service over several weeks,including 6,000 rounds of ammo,according to law enforcement authorities. Those purchases were made,Lautenberg observed, like you might order shoes or food. He didnt have to interact with another human being who could have noticed his abnormal behavior. If the gun shop owners did not notice abnormal behavior while interacting with Holmes,the owner of a shooting range said he did when Holmes made a half-hearted effort to gain membership. Its worth giving average Americans the opportunity to notice something is awry when a guy makes at least 40 separate purchases while arming himself with four weapons,6,000 rounds of ammunition and body armor to cover himself from head to foot. An editorial from the Kingston (N.Y.) Daily Freeman Online ammo sales need to be stopped In the wake of the multiple murders ... are we,in fact,helpless to do anything at all about it? True marriage is not gayEditor: Marriage is ordained of God for propagation of the human race,for pleasure,for companionship,for love and support. The Bible is explicit,And the Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man,and brought her to the man. And the man said This is now bone of my bones,and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman,because she was taken out of Man.For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother,and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. The homosexual practice and agenda is absolutely wrong. Just look at Genesis 19. Visitors came to Sodom and Lot took them to his house; the men of the city surrounded the house and they called to Lot and said to him, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them.They wanted to have homosexual relations with them. Gods attitude toward this sin is seen in the destruction of Sodom. In Leviticus 18:22,the Bible says You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. Hooray for Dan Cathy,CEO of Chick-fil-A,who took his stand for the biblical truth of marriage between a man and woman and who aired his biblical belief that those who champion same-sex marriage are risking divine retribution upon us all. He said,We are inviting Gods judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say,We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.This man of God has a right to voice his beliefs. Chick-fil-A does not discriminate against any patron. It is a very sad day in America when the Democratic party has decided to endorse homosexual marriage in its platform. In 2008,Barack Obama was still for traditional marriage. I loveAmerica. There is great hope for this great country,but we need to repent of all kinds of sins and turn back to God as a nation and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour,who made the only way to heaven,by shedding his blood and giving His body at Calvarys cross as full payment for our sins. He rose again and is coming back again as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Where we spend eternity will depend on what we do with Jesus. How God loves everyone of us that he gave His only begotten Son for us. May God have mercy on us and bless America. Jerry R. McCauley Lake PlacidA step back in timeEditor: I started this write up June 2008, when gas was more than $4 a gallon. I still remember my dad telling me about the summer of 1912,when some of the early pioneers heard that George Sebring was going to be coming down here again in October. He was going to be driving a car this time. At that time, there was no road from Avon Park to Sebring. My dad said that some of the early pioneers got together and followed along about the same path around Dinner Lake that he used to walk on when he went to Avon Park. They did some country boy paving in the bad sandy places to help Mr. Sebring get down here. I still remember in the s seeing some spots of country boy paving around different places in the woods. People who come here today have several different paved roads on which to travel to Sebring. They have big equipment to build roads with today. I just happen to think there probably isnt anyone today who even knows what country boy paving is. When the early pioneers came here, the only equipment they had were some hand tools,an axe and shovel. They had to do the best they could with what they had. Palmettos were plentiful and were everywhere. They cut palmetto fans and put them in the ruts. That was country boy paving. I remember my dad saying that when State Road 8 was built from Avon Park to Sebring,it followed along about the same path as the old palmetto road that Mr. Sebring had traveled on around Dinner Lake. Today,when people move down here, there are already water lines,power lines and telephone lines close by that they can hook up to. When the early pioneers came here,they had to stop at Smith Hardware in Avon Park. William Schlosser Sebring BouquetHospice treated entire family with careEditor: I would like to publicly acknowledge and thank the wonderful staff at Hospice House in Sebring for the compassion,kindness and care shown to Beverly Moore during the final week of her life. I have been an RN for 48 years and can honestly say I have never seen the level of care and attention that was continuously provided to keep her in comfort,resting quietly and peacefully. We can not begin to describe how fantastic they all were to Mom and to us. Highlands County is blessed to have such a facility available to patients facing end-of-life illnesses and to the families of these patients. Although I have been an advocate of hospice for many years,this is the first time I have had personal experience with the services they provide and would never hesitate to recommend them. Our sincere and heart-felt thanks goes out to all the staff ... each of you touched Moms life and ours as well. You truly are angels walking the face of this earth and we are so grateful you were there for Mom and for us. Linda and John (Jack) Moore Lake Placid I normally try to obey the laws of the land. Like many,I need to follow the speed limit laws a little better,but overall Im pretty good at doing what I should. H owever,this may not always be true. I can envision circumstances where I might knowingly break the law. I will even tell you ahead of time what would drive me to that decision. Its simply this. The day the government outlaws Bible reading,worshipping God,or being a Christian in general is the day I become a lawbreaker. If I have to choose between Gods law and mans,God is going to win. Because I hold this philosophy,I became very interested in the case of Michael Salman,an Arizona man who is currently serving a 60-day jail term for hosting what he refers to as Bible studies in his home. On the surface,it looks like a clear case of religious discrimination. However,in reading a number of articles about this story for the column, Ive found that the truth of whats going on is a little more complicated then that. According to an article posted on www.phoenixnewtimes.co m (which has a number of articles regarding this case) Salman wasnt always a man of God. In fact,he did time in jail for his involvement in a drive-by shooting while a gang member. While in prison,Salman apparently found the Lord. He also enrolled in a Bible correspondence course and was ordained a minister before getting out of jail. After leaving prison, Salman started his own church,Harvest Christian Fellowship. It quickly outgrew his living room. They needed a place to meet. After trying several things, including renting space from a Baptist church, Salman got an idea. He moved to a Phoenix neighborhood after checking to see if the zoning there allowed for churches. Once he settled in,he began his plan to build a church building on his four-acre property. It didnt go smoothly. It probably didnt help that Salman was less than forthcoming about his intentions when he applie d for his building permits. His first permit in 2007 allowed him to build what the article describes as a garage type structure, something with no electricity or plumbing. When City Hall was informed that the building in question was something different,they put a halt to the construction. It didnt end there. Salman has been trying to get his church building going ever since. He got a permit for a game room in his backyard. Said structure has no games in it. It does have a pulpit and chairs that are arranged like pews. Articles claim that Salman held two services a week and had as many as 80 people attending people he claims are merely f amily and friends getting together for a Bible study. The city thought otherwise and finally arrested Salman for building code violations. He was charged with 67 misdemeanors. According to the article on www.foxnews.com,he is holding Bible studies in prison. I really wish I could root for Salman without reservation. I think people should be allowed to hold Bible studies in their homes. The early Christians met in homes, and had services in them. I think that should be OK. But its not OK to lie about your intentions. And as Christians we are called to obey the laws of the land as long as they dont contradict Gods law. Salman didnt do that. He flouted the law because it kept him from doing what he wanted to do. I hope he comes out of prison a wiser man this time. That he works with his neighbors instead of fighting with them.

News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS Henscratch Farms has a full house Saturday morning during the 12th annual Grape Stomp Festival in Lake Placid. By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Good news spreads quickly, and far .. at least it does for the Henscratch Farms and Winery annual Grape Stomp Festival. In its 12th year, the Grape S tomp Festival drew in hundreds of visitors, many of which have never stepped foot on the property. Visitors from St. P etersburg, Miami and even Colorado roamed Henscratch among carloads full of locals b oth young and old. Giovanna Smarr, a St. Petersburg resident, and her n iece Carlinea Barney spent a few minutes at the stomp tent m ashing away the juicy grapes Saturday morning. Barney wasnt too thrilled a bout the squishy mess underneath her feet, but S marr enjoyed the experience. Its great, Smarr said happily after a fresh foot spraying. Smarr explained how she and her niece wound up at the f estival this weekend. Well, I turned 45 this year so I decided I would take 45 d ifferent, unique little trips. Ive been lots of places. I got a Groupon ad for the Kenilworth Lodge here in Sebring a couple days ago. I t hought Well, what is there to do in Sebring?Then I ran across an ad for the Grape Stomp and I knew I had to come, Smarr explained. Naomi Auerbach of Miami spent the day enjoying the day with her best friend Stacy who is a Sebring resident. Candace and Cheyenne Weber of Colorado, enjoyed t he trip and the company of her fathers family who also r eside in Highlands County. Henscratch owner Drew Jones was busy refilling samples of his Red Country and White Country wine in the w inery. Its been great, Jones said with excitement. Were expecting between 600 and 1,000 people today. Guests enjoyed freshly picked grapes, wine and barbecue along with music provided by the Henscratch Legends. 12th Grape Stomp draws in locals, tourists to Henscratch Farms MIAMI (AP) The state is investigating abuse allegations at a Florida hospital that treats brain injuries. But its owner says the charges are old and being rehashed as part of an attempt to discredit the hospital by a fertilizer company that wants to mine phosphate nearby. The Department of Children and Families conducted an unannounced inspection recently of The Florida Institute of Neurologic Rehabilitation, after Bloomberg News reported on some of the allegations. DCF says it has confirmed 36 abuse allegations there since 2005. Hospital CEO Joseph Brennick says he has no tolerance for abuse. He says a fertilizer company wants to mine phosphate near the hospital that county officials estimate could be worth roughly $1.2 billion. The company says it has had no contact with Bloomberg News regarding the hospital.

They wanted instead to remember Lori and g rieve. It grew dark. The group lit their candles. Pools of firelight reflected thoughtful faces. Many cheeks glistened w ith tears. Lisa Scott, a friend of L oris daughter, opened the ceremony with a prayer. Were here to celebrate her l ife, Scott said, and her impact on all of our lives. Kayla Summerfield, 19, Loris eldest daughter, stepped forward, friends prot ectively surrounding her. She looked out at the group of about 50 people gathered in the narrow backyard of her apartment. Fighting tears s he shook her head in gratitude and wonder. Mom always thought she didnt have friends, she said. Jeeze, look at all the p eople here. McKenna emerged as a w oman who maintained her courage and determination despite struggling with depression. Aperson enriched because of her contradictions. Outgoing and generous, Lori was the kind of person who was always ready to help, to encourage and inspire. She took her own advice too, her family and friends remembered. She was back at school, studying computer electronics at South Florida State College. She made the honor society. Lori always wanted to help someone else, her husband Bill McKenna said. She was always going fast, being cheerful. If she had it, shed give it, no question, one mourner said. And she had no trouble saying what was on her mind. Smiling in memory, the woman added, She told me to get a backbone. Awoman near the back said she and Lori had started out as enemies, but, oddly we became best friends, like sisters. The young woman began to cry. She loved her daughters more than anything, she said, crying harder. She was a wonderful mother, people said over and over again. Her younger daughter, Amanda McKenna, 15, is too distraught to leave her home. More than one person referred to the way Lori died trying to help someone. None were surprised. Lori went out helping someone, said Mike Smith, Kaylas boyfriend. She has a ticket to heaven. The shock of her sudden death affected everyone. Death is a part of life, no way around it, said Smith. Cherish every moment, I want to remember everything thats happy, Kayla added, wiping tears from her cheek. McKennas funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Monday at First Baptist Church of Lake Placid.

C M Y K Everything is a great effort when you are paralyzed on your right side. Without both sides of your body, there is no balance. Imagine tying your right arm to your body. Think about that for a moment. How often do you use your arm for balance, to reach for something. How many times a day do you stand up or sit down? How many times do you write your name? Everything you do involves a balance. Now, tie a concrete block to your right foot then try to put your underwear on. Thats exactly how it feels when you have lost the use of one side of your body. Y ou are out of balance. Socks are the worst. The good leg is hard enough with one hand, the other leg, the one with the concrete block attached, takes sometimes 10 minutes to wrangle just your toes into a sock. Seams not straight? Forget about it. Now your shoes. Try to bend over to put on shoes with one arm tied down. It takes most of your energy not to fall on your face. One thing I would recommend for just everybody get the elastic shoe laces and pay someone to tie them for you. That works best and has the least amount of cursing involved. You would not believe what comes out your mouth while tying a bow on a concrete block with one hand. Luckily, I can blame the colorful speech on the stroke. I have almost convinced my speech therapist to believe that Ive acquired Tourette Syndrome. Standing up is a whole different ball of wax. Your arm becomes dead weight and the concrete block does nothing to hold you on your feet. Matter of fact, it often conspires with the floor to trick you into thinking everything is fine as the floor sneaks up and smacks you upside the head. I committed the cardinal sin the other day: I was off balance and I fell. The whole time I was falling all I could think was: Crap. They will make me get a bathroom buddy. Falling in a hospital is the wrong thing to do. If you even look a little wobbly, every nurse, staffer, therapist, housekeeper, maintenance man and even the guy who mows the grass flinches and rushes to save you. With a fall there is a mound of paperwork that has to filed with the insurance mafia. There are charts and graphs and conferences. Someone may even be executed. Fortunately, my incident went undocumented because of quick thinking, precision timing, a little luck and a lot of help from God. My wife, Beth, had just left for the day and I was returning from a solo bathroom visit. I did everything right. Put wheelchair at the right angle for transfer to bed, check. Lock the right wheel, check. Lock the left wheel on the chair, check-aroo. Use the chair arm to stand, check. Ooops, too late, forgot to set my feet square. It was like a scene in the movie The Matrix. T ime slowed, my thoughts accelerated to light speed and floor tiled. As I pitched, I realized that I still had my good left arm on the wheelchair. Pulling hard to port (thats left for those of you who havent read Moby Dick), I aimed for the bed. Remembering my training in scuba class, I tried to relax my body and go with the fall. It worked! I face-planted from the waist up on the soft bed. Ha! Go, scuba training! Unfortunately, my body from the waist down was still off the bed and I bent beautifully at the waist because I was limp. Oh crap. That never happened in scuba class. The wall, bless its soul, was close enough to the side of bed that it stopped me from sliding completely onto floor, but now I was pinned between the wall and the bed. At least I was no longer in motion. OK. I could deal with this. I just had to put both my knees on the floor and use the bed to stand up. Easy peasy. Ever notice how shiny hospital floors are? Remember Tom Cruise in Risky Business where he slides into frame on his white cotton socks? Put the two together, add cotton sleep pants, a concrete block and a trapped right arm and you will come close to the next 14 minutes of my life. Except Old Time Rock and Roll was not the sound track. I kept hearing Paul Simon and Slip Sliding Away. I managed to get my good knee under me, but the other leg, the one with the concrete block, had decided it was on strike and had left a little sign that read Gone fishing. Be back tomorrow. After what seemed like a year, I finally wrestled both legs under me and was close to suffocating in hospital sheets when my good arm broke free and decided to join my brain in the fight for the solo bathroom privileges. With the extra limb, I was able to straighten up, but my paralyzed arm decided to join the leg in the strike. It screamed Solidarity and jumped off the bed. The dead weight again took me off balance to the right. I clutched at the bed sheets with my left and was thanking the housekeeper for tucking them in on the far side when the nurse walked. Is every thing all right? she inquired. Her eyebrows were trying to climb onto the top of her head as her brain registered the scene in progress. Right then those fateful words flashed through my head. Houston, we have a problem. The lights were low, I was on my knees by the side of bed with my bad arm flailing and the bed sheets clutched tightly in my good hand. What to do? My brain was still in Matrix mode and a single thought hit me like a bolt of lightening. I did the only thing that would make sense. I bowed my head and acted like I was praying. Mr. Baldridge, is everything all right? her voice was now close to a shriek as she pictured the avalanche of paperwork ahead. Just getting ready for bed, I slurred as I tried to calm my heart rate. Do you need anything? Just some privacy, I replied in a calm, steady voice. Let me know if you need anything, she said quietly as she backed out of the room and softy closed the door. She had bought the ruse. Whew, that was close, I spoke out loud. It was right then that I decided I would make use of the position before I spent the next 20 minutes clawing my way back onto the bed. I bowed my head in earnest and gave thanks that night for the good things I still had: my wife, my family, the support of good friends and a functioning brain. After I finished, I clawed my way back onto the bed. As I settled down in the pillows my soul became quiet from the efforts. I felt a sense of balance in my life despite the physical struggles. It was then, as I was drifting off, that I thought I heard small but strong voice whisper De nada. Ed Baldridge is a News-Sun staff writer.

Rooney says his main focus is not specifically certain issues but the people within the expanded district. Im focusing on getting to know people. About 50 percent of the people in the district are new to me. I want to focus on those people, Rooney said Thursday afternoon. As for the issues, Rooney is fully focused on agriculture and veterans. We have to strive to do better. We are losing veterans so quickly to suicides and there are just so many scams out there. People preying on our older veterans, Rooney said. Job creation is a hot button topic for the candidate. Rooney will focus on that issue without ceasing if elected. Those are my focuses seniors and farmers and workers. We have to create an economy where jobs can grow. We (House and Senate) are going to continue to talk about things like tax reform and regulatory reform because theres so much red tape that farmers have to deal with and small businesses have to deal with just to get moving, Rooney said. We need to send a message, not only to businesses here, but to businesses that were here and that have left (for other countries) to come back. Rooney said his biggest worry is the next four years following the upcoming election. The thing that Im afraid of most is that we get to January and its the same president, the same Senate and the same House were going to go through four more years of the same gridlock, Rooney stated. Rooney said Congress has only a 9 percent passing rate currently, a rate he believes is truly hurting the economy and the country. One thing Rooney is completely pushing and focusing on is the energy race for the state. I think Florida is really missing the boat on energy, he said. Weve seen the housing coming back a little, tourism will continue to sustain because people always wants to come down for the sun, but we are sitting on a treasure here with energy. We know there is natural gas under our feet. I dont buy that we dont have enough confidence in ourselves to do safe drilling off of our shores and away from our beaches. I believe the U.S is better than that. We shouldnt have to rely on Venezuela or Iran. Rooney believes that energy is the fourth leg to completing and moving the country forward. Rooney also supports becoming a food independent country and the government making citizens lives as simple as possible. Continued from page 1A Rooney running to keep seat doors. Weve been through 1 0 counties knocking and getting to know the people i n the district so that I can serve them, Arnold said. The primary focus for Arnold if he is elected is job creation. Arnold wants to work on creating positions for those who are unemp loyed or have lost their jobs due to downsizing and foreign workers. Im focused and working on bringing jobs back to the U nited States. The way to do that is to bring manufacturing back here. Were always giving our money to manufactures out of the country like China. We have to stop that and we have to stop funding folks and countries that arent friendly to us, Arnold said. Another issue that gets Arnold going is government spending. The debt and spending, I look at them as two separate issues. The spending is out of control. There needs to be a balanced budget amendment. Through this, every department across the board can look at itself and say Where do we need to make cuts?Nobody knows the departments better than the departments themselves. We could start with 10 percent cuts or whatever Congress decides throughout each department, Arnold said. If we dont get that (debt) under control then our children can never have the opportunities in this country that we have had. Our kids will be paying our debts and our burdens for years to come, said Arnold. With the gridlock in the Congress, Arnold knows the task wont be easy. Arnold has become frustrated with the current lawmakers pitted against one another and not doing what is in the best interest of the countrys citizens. These legislatures now, theyre not in the districts enough. Nobody is listening to us, nobody understands the needs of the people in this district or in other districts. I dont believe the legislators read the bills and that is part of the problem, Arnold stated. The increase in spending is one of my biggest frustrations. Arnold plans to educate himself and the citizens of the district by having a more personal interaction if elected. Town hall meetings, sitdowns and question-andanswer forums are all a huge part of Arnolds plan to create a better district and bridge the gap between lawmakers and citizens. That is a big part of the reason I am running. This is why I am doing this, for the future of our children. For everybodys future, Arnold said. Continued from page 1A Arnold running for congress Associated Press JANESVILLE, Wis. Even before Wisconsin sent Paul Ryan to Congress, he was meticulously carving a p ath that seemed to point only upward. As a young Capitol Hill staffer, he impressed Republican lawmakers with h is hustle and intellectual curiosity. He blended quickly with an elite crop of conservative thinkers. By his 30s, he was a congressman o n his way to becoming a GOPname brand with his push-the-edge budget prop osals. Ryans climb reached new heights Saturday when R epublican presidential nominee Mitt Romney a nnounced him as his running mate. Mitts Choice for VPis P aul Ryan, said a phone app Romneys team created t o spread the word to supporters. As the chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan gives Romney a link t o Capitol Hill leadership and underscores Romneys e ffort to make the election a referendum on the nations economic course. Romney a lso could see his standing improve in Wisconsin, a s tate President Barack Obama won handily four years ago but that could be m uch tighter this November. Even so, Ryan has been a double-edged sword for Romney. The congressmans endorsement of Romney came at a critical stage of the GOPprimaries, giving him a boost in the W isconsin race that effectively buried Romneys final threat. But it also meant Romney was embracing the Ryan-sponsored budget proposal that Democrats fiercely target as painful to the poor and elderly. Still, the square-jawed congressman is viewed as a bridge between the buttoned-up GOPestablishment and the riled-up tea party movement. At 42, Ryan has spent almost half of his life in the W ashington fold, the last 14 representing a southern Wisconsin district that runs from the shores of Lake Michigan through farm country south of Madison. R yan grew up in Janesville and still lives just down the block from where he spent his boyhood. His father, a lawyer, died of a heart attack when Ryan was a teenager. Its why Ryan is a fitness buff, leading fellow lawmakers through grueling, early-morning workouts and pushing himself through mountain climbs. That same intensity propelled him on the political front, too. He was first exposed to Congress as a summer intern to Sen. Robert Kasten. With an economics degree in hand, Ryan worked his way through committee staff assignments, a prominent think tank and top legislative advisory roles until opportunity arose with an open seat from his home turf.

Continued from page 2A COMMUNITYBRIEFS partisans and other parties, Campbell revealed. I wish it was better. Republicans are expected to show up in greater numbers due to the amount of Republicans on the ballots for local campaigns. Campbell predicts the big three for the local voters will be the House races, school district positions and Campbells own Supervisor of Elections position. The house race is a big campaign and it has gotten kind of heated, Campbell said. I know that one will be the biggest. The only Democrats in local races are those on the school board campaigns. Most people are just going to wait until November for the presidential election to vote on the local stuff, too. Early voting closes Saturday and Campbell is prepared for anything. You dont really now if there will be a lot the day it closes. People may rush out or just wait, theres no telling, said Campbell. The primary election voting will take place from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday. Atotal of 25 polls will be open for registered voters. For more information or to find your precinct visit the Supervisor of Elections Offices website at www.votehighlands.com/. A sample ballot is available on page 4B of todays NewsSun. Continued from page 1A w ork in the ranchs cow/calf operation and raise horses, goats and pigs. The ranch t ries to be self-sufficient, so the work is for real. Clearing away tornado d ebris grew out the ranchs tradition of reaching out to c ommunity. When a friend got in touch with Bob McDaniels, who teaches husbandry at the ranch, and told him a bout an elderly man who needed help with his destroyed home, McDaniels got a team of boys together. Its about giving assistance, McDaniels said. Giving back to the commun ity and developing a work ethic. Ranging in school grade from high school freshman to senior, each teen was from a different county. McDaniels called them f rom their work. They approached a visitor with arms stretching out for a hand shake, making direct eye contact and using the word sir. Sunburned and sweaty, they wore heavy leather gloves and floppy brimmed hats. Asked how they were going about moving the debris, one raised his hands in the air and wiggled his fingers. The old-fashioned way, he smiled, were using our hands. The crew began Tuesday. By Friday, theyd managed to fill two 30-yard containers with about half the debris. McDaniels thought they might have two to three more days of work. Watching the boys separating wood from the pile, it became clear the project was as much about practical learning as it was doing a good deed. For example, a fence post lay on its side, the bottom third a solid block of concrete that had to be removed. It was a task the teens stood in line to do. Each in his turn picked up the small sledge hammer and pounded away with abandon. Slow down, not so hard, McDaniels said. The hammer will just eat you up. And indeed it did. Each boy had to finally give up. I dont care how long you beat it, McDaniels told them, youre not going to wear that hammer out. Instead, McDaniels said, they should look at the concrete block like a puzzle. Learn how to see the parts, the cracks, where we want to break it off. He stepped back and watched with affection as the boys worked steadily as a team. McDanielsgoal to help each one become whole man who lives a fulfilled life. To start in a new direction, he said, there is nothing better than learning hard life skills under the hot sun.

Oh,yes!I assured him. I had only begun to babysit this very verbal 2-year-old. His parents had w arned that he didnt nap. When hes tired,hell just fall asleep wherever, they had said. I sensed he needed a cozy,scheduled time for a nap and encouraged him to rest on my bed. I made him comfortable,sang to him, hugged him and promised we would play when he woke up. Then he asked me that heart-wrenching question. He was looking for a sense of security,of belonging that he wasnt getting at home. Though his parents surely loved him,his mom was an airline hostess and his dad a real estate agent. Both jobs kept them running on the fast track of schedules that clashed. Consequently,James may fall asleep when mommy was home and wake up to f ind her goneor vice versa. Even though one or the other parent was there, James was afraid to take a nap. I held him close and reassured him I would be there. Then he rested his head on the pillow and fell asleep peacefully. From then on,he actually asked,Is it time for my nap yet?While he was with us, he could confidently close his eyes in sleep assured of my being there. He belonged and was cared for. Recently,I read in Isaiah 43:1, NKJV,Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. Fear notyou are Mine. Im not lost in the crowd. He knows my name. We all want to belong. To know that someone cares and will be there for us no matter what. The chapter continues by saying that God will be with his people in every situation. It assures them they are precious in his sight and loved. Most people have known the wounding that rejection brings. Someone you trusted betrays you. Someone who vowed they would never leave does just that. Someone who once made you feel like you belonged now has cast you aside for another. But,even in those dark murky waters or that fiery trial,God declares,Fear notyou are Mine. The Lord Jesus Christ gave his life for you and me. When we receive his free gift of salvation achieved by his death and resurrection,we belong to him. He has called us by our name and knows us. We are his and he is ours. Ah!The joy of belonging. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. The joy of belonging Dear Abby: This is my f irst-ever Dear Abby letter. I am disgusted by the lack of manners shown by cellphone users. I run an antique store in a small t ourist town. I cannot tell you how many insulted and incensedcustomers I have asked to please leave my shop because they insisted on talking on their cellphones. I have also asked people in church to carry on their conversations outside. A man at my daughters high school graduation got a call and proceeded to talk on and on until I finally asked him to leave. This has happened in restaurants, movies even a Broadway play. Its inconceivable to me that cellphone users are unwilling or unable to understand that their VIP conversations are an intrusion and rude to those who are forced to listen. Peeved in Nantucket, Mass. Dear Peeved: It is difficult to teach consideration for others to people who have none. However,allow me to clue you in to what some communities are doing to curb the intrusion of cellphones:They have posted signs in restaurants, theaters and shops that read,Cellphone-Free Zone. The owner of this establishment thanks you for not using your cellphone on the premises. If you must make or receive a call,please do so outside. That way,customers are warned in a way thats not confrontational. Dear Abby: What is proper when youre talking with someone and you notice the person has food stuck in his or her teeth? What if the person is part of a group and someone you dont know very well? Toothful in Florida Dear Toothful: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you were in the other persons place,wouldnt YOU want to be told? Even if you know the person only casually,try to ease him or her away from the group and say,I know we dont know each other very well,but I thought you should know you have something in your teeth. Its happened to me,and I thought youd like to know, too. Consider it a charitable act. The person will:First, be embarrassed; second,be grateful. Dear Abby: I am a supervisor in a consulting firm. I have recently been assigned an employee who does not dress appropriately for the workplace. The fashion choices she makes are unprofessional and too casual for our company. She wears no makeup,nor does she consistently care for her hair. Abby,this young woman meets the public. Her job is to consult with clients and advise them about investing their money. Her appearance has been commented on by clients and colleagues alike and does not lend confidence in her skills and abilities. How do I counsel her without hurting her feelings? Apprehensive in Conservative-ville Dear Apprehensive: Your job as supervisor includes counseling your employees with regard to anything that affects job performance and the image of the company. If the company doesnt have a dress code,its time to establish one. Then schedule a private meeting with this employee and discuss what you expect from her. Offer her a few pictures of appropriate business attire and stylish, easily manageable hairstyles. Stress that her appearance is an important part of the image of the company and your clients perception of her skills and talents. By emphasizing that the dress code will be of value to her,youll put yourself in the position of doing her a favor rather than being critical.

C M Y K By LEANNE ITALIE Associated PressNEW YORK Chores piling up. DVRs stuffed and groaning with unwatched favorites. Late,bleary strolls into the office. Welcome to the Great Olympic Time Suck,that unsung sport that has millions glued to coverage of the London Games rather than tending to real life. At 34-year-old Angie Butchers house in suburban Chicago,the suck looks like this: Dishes are not getting done. Kids are not getting baths at night. Kids are up hours past bedtime,said Butcher,whose family has been watching anything and everything. Nice summer evenings are going by and none of us are outside to enjoy it. Dinner has been picnic style on the living room rug more than once. The suck has been so bad that her neighbors even wondered whether the family of five was out of town. The family is far from alone. Nielsen said 29.1 million people watched NBCs W ednesday coverage,making it the 12th time in 13 nights that the audience for the London Games beat the corresponding night in Beijing. Nearly eight in 10 Americans,in fact,have watched or followed the games either on television, online or via social networks,according to a survey done Aug. 2-5 by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. If Bosco,Julie OGradys Australian shepherd in Palo Alto,Calif.,could speak, hed likely be shrieking, Get a grip woman!His pained,pathetic pleas havent been enough to pry the tech industry public relations specialist away from the Olympics. Hes not getting his nightly walk. Period,a contrite OGrady admitted. In Miami,Jim Angleton has a financial services business to run. Hes always been a big Olympics fan,and has attended several in person. This time around,his late-night viewing obsession has him heading to the office at 11 a.m. rather than his usual 8:30,ditching his nightly jogs,shedding his signature suits in favor of jeans,and failing to return calls and emails on time to make room for the games. He,too,had a dog problem on one out-of-it day. I forgot to walk the dog before I left for my office. Yup,found a surprise when I arrived home,said Angleton,56. Emilie Yount,30,a writer and actor in Chicago,was a sprinter in high school and her first year of college. Shes been a swimmer all her life and has a friend who w orks at the rowing venue, Eton Dorney,so shes been glued to her TV and London. Her 7 a.m. alarm has been more jarring than usual. I havent socialized and I missed a birthday party for a close friend,Yount said. Paula Wade,41,a quality assurance tech for a company in Oklahoma City,Okla., was sure she wouldnt get sucked in. I mean,really,who w atches archery or table tennis? And yet there I am, cheering the Italians,or whoever,on. And now Im to the point that I have things auto-deleting off of the D VR. Sundays closing ceremony and the end of the collective hangover cant come soon enough. I loveTeam USA,but I really need to get back to my regular crap TV,she added. Paul Dergarabedian,a box-office analyst for Hollywood.com,said games came at just the right time, so soon after the Colorado theater shooting that left 12 dead and 58 others injured, and the slaying of six Sikh worshippers at a Wisconsin temple. Theres been some pretty terrible stuff in the news of late,he said. These Olympics are a welcome relief from whats going on in the world. Its such an innately positive event. The uptick in viewing popularity,he said,also has to do with NBCs coverage strategy of streaming online during the day,offering coverage on sister channels and highlighting big events at night,followed by a postmidnight recap. Let alone the usual summer dearth of fresh programming elsewhere. This is an insomniacs dream come true, Dergarabedian said from Los Angeles. By JILL LAWLESS Associated PressLONDON From the track to the ring to the sandp it,this crop of Olympians just cant stop the beat. The London Games have brought a n outpouring of crazy,creative victory celebrations.Funky jigsK enyan steeplechase winner Ezekiel Kemboi celebrated his gold medal with a hips wiveling,arm-shaking peacock dance for 80,000 people in the Olympic Stadium. At the ExCel center,U.S. boxing champ Claressa S hields broke into a combination jig-and-fist-bump when she took gold in one of the first-ever Olympic womens boxing contests. Over at the beach volleyball venue,American Misty M ay-Treanor a former Dancing With the Stars c ontestant broke into a funky jig in the sand as she celebrated winning gold with partner Kerri Walsh Jennings. I just had to get out there a nd let it out,May-Treanor said.Walk this wayTennis star Serena Williams celebrated Olympic gold with a Crip Walk a f ancy-footwork dance that originated with the Los Angeles street gang and later spread around the world. Her sister Venus,sitting in the stands,looked delighted. Wimbledon,the very proper home of the All-England Lawn Tennis Association, had never seen anything like it,and a few commentators were not amused. It was just me,the U.S. medalist said later. I love to dance.CartwheelsWilliam wasnt the only champ to raise a few eyebrows. The gold-winning U.S. womens soccer team capped its victories with cartwheels,front flips and a team rendition of the worm sometimes even in the middle of a game. I wouldnt like it if our team did that,said New Zealand coach Tony Readings. We try to work on scoring goals. We havent got time to work on celebrations. His team lost to the Americans 2-0.The Incredible HulkGerman discus thrower Robert Hartings response to winning gold was not a dance so much as a force of nature. The 280-pound behemoth roared,ripped his shirt to shreds like the Incredible Hulk,grabbed a German flag, ran a lap of the track over the hurdles not too shabby, either,for such a big guy and then tried to wrench one of the burning torches from the Olympic cauldron. The cauldron remained intact. His evening went downhill from there. The next morning Harting tweeted:Puuh i just got robbed while I did some work to please athletic fans! I lost all my accredition (sic) for Olympic Village! no entrance. Maybe he could just bring a photo. The man is hard to miss.The legendBut in his celebrations as on the track,Usain Bolt is in a class by himself. The Jamaican sprinters trademark lightning bolt arm stretched to the sky as if hes about to shoot an arrow has taken over Olympic Park. Exuberant visitors were seen replicating the pose thousands of times as they poured out of Olympic Stadium after Bolt won the 200 meters Thursday night for his second gold of these games. Police officers in Bobby helmets,firefighters even London Mayor Boris Johnson,who certainly lacks the sprinters svelte physique have all joined in. Bolt himself shook up his celebration routine after the 200 meters. The self-proclaimed living legend glided across the finish line,placed an index finger to his lips in a silent reproach to those who had doubted him,then dropped to the track and did some push-ups. The crowd went wild. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, August 12, 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 FAITH LUTHERAN CHURCH AND SCHO; 3.639"; 2"; Black; main; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 0 0 3 3 1 1 CROSSWORDSOLUTION OLYMPICS MCT Usain Bolts victory celebration has become a worldwide sensation.

Its the moment before the moment of truth. The new fall series are in the wings,just days or weeks from b ursting into view and discovering their fate. Their stars,producers and network bosses are full of anticipation and resolve. Thats what the recent Television C ritics Association powwow was all about:Casts and execs parading before the nations TV reporters to get them stoked. Granted,many of the stars who hawked their show with such c onviction were relying on blind faith. Most were still a f ew days from resuming production. Some hadnt even seen any u pcoming scripts. Their only firsthand knowledge was based o n the series pilot they shot months ago. But never mind the unknowns to be dealt with once they got back to work. They were excited that soon their show would reach the p ublic and,just maybe,catch fire and air for years,then reign forever in syndicated reruns a j ackpot that might bring them new or boosted fame and untold riches, even a place in the annals of great TV. The stakes are sky-high and, e ach fall,hope springs eternal. So does reasonable doubt for most of the stars. They know l aunching a series that clicks with viewers is like striking oil or taki ng gold at the Olympics. The painful truth is,the shows the stars came plugging at TCA will most likely be gone a year from now,when some of the same a ctors could be right back here promoting their next series those actors,that is,who are lucky enough to land another series so quickly. Consider Laura Benanti from the upcoming NBC comedy Go On, who a year earlier sat here on the dais in the Beverly Hilton Hotels grand ballroom as part of the ensemble of NBCs The Playboy Club which was axed last fall after airing just three weeks. Alongside her was Go Oncostar Matthew Perry,who last season was at TCA plugging his ABC sitcom Mr. Sunshine. During the Go Onsession one reporters question to him began with,A lot of people in this room liked Mr. Sunshine,whereupon Perry got laughs with a joke at his own expense:THIS is the room where people liked Mr. Sunshine? Mr. Sunshinecame and went in early 2011. Now Perry (whose new show got a sneak preview on Wednesday after NBCs Olympics coverage) is primed to take another swing. So is Anthony Anderson,whose many TV credits include the Fox drama K-Ville,which lasted just a few weeks in fall 2007. Now hes in the NBC sitcom Guys With Kids,and exuding positive energy. Its the job that I have at hand, said Anderson at NBCs poolside party,so I send nothing but positive energy to it. Thats the only way its going to be successful. You manifest your own destiny. Other actors have other coping techniques. Mindy Kaling,fresh from The Office,is the creator-writer-star of the Fox comedy The Mindy Project,which suggests she might be feeling extra waves of pressure. But theres good news,she said, for a multi-hyphenate:When youre starring in a show youre also writing,you dont have extra time to do the neurotic things I would normally do,like obsess. You get nervous as hell,confided series veteran Michael Chiklis,now back with Vegas,a CBS drama. I feel like this show is such a great thing,but Im mildly superstitious and afraid to be cocky. I dont want to get ahead of myself. Terry OQuinn,who scored belated TV stardom on Lost,now is headlining as a devilish landlord on ABCs spooky thriller Park Avenue,and he takes nothing for granted. I feel very uncertain,not terribly well-balanced,he said with a w an smile,and having done this for a living for this long,thats a fairly normal state. I hope the show succeeds,but Ive become pretty philosophical about the numerous f ailures that one suffers in this business. For many stars,the best policy at a moment like this is to stay sharply focused on just doing the job,and let the rest of the process take care of itself. Justin Bartha stars as one-half ofa committed gay couple in the NBC comedy The New Normal, and while declaring his pride in the show he confessed,I dont even know when it will air,to be honest. Everybody is cautiously optimistic,said his co-star Andrew Rannells (a Tony winner for the hit musical The Book of Mormon), adding with cautious optimism, our fingers are crossed. Jordana Spiro,who formerly starred in the TBS comedy My Boys,insisted that right now she means to keep my head down and do good work and not look like a schmuckon her new Fox drama, The Mob Doctor. But after it premieres,that could change. If people really respond to it I may get a bit dizzy and say, Whoa,wait a second! This is kind of a big deal! Meanwhile,nothing can hold back JoAnna Garcia Swisher. A star of the NBC sitcom Animal Practice(which gets a post-Olympics preview on Sunday),she already is dreaming about a big deal. Im always hoping for the best, thats my personality,she explained with a grin. Im already thinking about syndication! New shows stars are full of hope but nervous, too MCT TV fans will be hunting for hits this fall.

This majestic bird is a c ommon sight in Highlands County. It may be viewed soaring in the sky or poised near the water looking for food. Great blues are the largest North American h eron and can range from head to tail 38 to 54 inches w ith a wingspan of 66 to 70 inches and a height of 45 to 54 inches. These huge birds a re found throughout most of North America near fresh or s alt water,flooded meadows, lake edges and shorelines. Ardea Herodias,more commonly called great blue heron,is a wading bird gene rally found in or near the water. These long-legged b irds may appear bluish-gray from a distance. They have a wide black stripe over their e yes,red-brown thighs,and rusty-gray necks with a white face. They sport a yellow bill and gray legs. In flight,this bird will curl its neck into an Sshape with its wings outstretched and legs beyond the tail. While flying,these graceful birds have very slow wing beats. Great blue herons dine on mostly fish; however they are opportunistic feeders and will also make a meal out of insects,rodents,small mammals,amphibians,reptiles, crustaceans and even small birds. They hunt by sight and generally swallow their prey whole. These large creatures wade slowly in the shallow w ater and stand like a statue while stalking their prey. Their long legs allow them to wade in the water,and their widespread,narrow toes keep them from sinking into the mud. Once they have located their future meal,they strike with lightning speed. Thrusting their neck and head forward they stab the unfortunate prey with their sharp,strong bill. The harsh croak these herons make is quite loud especially during breeding season. Great blues usually breed in colonies in trees located near water. Their nests are made up of sticks and twigs lined with soft material. It is usually constructed in a tall tree,but some birds build in the reeds or a cliff edge. The female lays three to seven eggs,which hatch in about one month. Usually one brood is raised per year; however,the female can lay replacement eggs if hers have been destroyed or disturbed. Great blues usually nest in the same spot every year and may even use the same nest. The male heron chooses the nesting site and supplies the female with the necessary materials to build the nest. She then constructs a three-by-three foot nest up in a high tree to keep her eggs and chicks safe from predators. It takes the parents about a week to get the nest done,but they continue to w ork on it throughout incubation and even after the e ggs have hatched. Emerging from the pale blue eggs,the young chicks hatch over a period of several days. The first to hatch is usually the dominate chick in the nest and will most likely be aggressive with its siblings. The young birds will stay in the nest for about two months. The young are fed by both parents. The adults regurgitate the food and feed it to the chicks. Birds that are feeding their babies may eat up to four times as much food than they normally do. As hatchlings,young great blue herons may be preyed upon by various predators. H owever,once they reach adulthood,due to their large size,very few animals prey on them. Some of the birds brave enough to go after these huge birds include bald eagles,golden eagles,great horned owls and red-tailed hawks. These carnivorous birds usually live about 15 years and are not generally social creatures. Since they need a large amount of food,they like to keep large areas to themselves. However,when breeding season approaches, the birds begin to gather in colonies which can range from just a few to hundreds of birds. Even though great blues dont mate for life,they do have a very unique courtship. These rituals may form strong bonds in couples,allowing them to successfully raise their young. Some of the mating rituals include bill snapping,moaning,preening,circular flights,exchanging twigs, crest raising and bill duels. Males might fight over females but not to the death as other species do. Great blue herons are fairly hardy creatures; however human inventions and interaction have caused some problems for the creatures. Power lines,pesticides,plastic waste and monofilament fishing line all pose threats to the survival to these magnificent creatures. When they are nesting and hatching young,they are extremely sensitive to human intervention and will abandon their nests if disturbed. Development of conservation and wetland habitats are also wreaking havoc on the species. Great blue herons are protected by the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. It is illegal to capture, possess,or cause harm to these birds,their nests or eggs. Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department.

The majestic great blue heron a common sight in Heartland News From The Watershed Corine Burgess MCT Great blue herons have long legs and widespread, narrow toes enabling them to wade in water and not sink in the mud. Once prey is located, they strike with lightning speed, thrusting their neck and head forward as they stab the unfortunate prey with their sharp, strong bill.

Painting Tips Consider using a combination paint and primer it can save you time and money by eliminating the need to use two painting products. Work from the ceiling down to the baseboards. Do one entire wall or area at a time. Use wide masking tape to mask off areas you dont want to paint,such as window panes or trim. Use a roller to paint in blocks of roughly 4 x 4 feet. P aint adjacent blocks before each previous block dries to help blend the edges. Paint molding and woodwork with a brush,in the direction of the wood grain. Use short strokes to coat the surface,then use longer,smoother strokes for an even and finished surface. Make sure the room is well ventilated as you paint. Pick a paint that dries quickly and has low odor,so your child can move into the newly painted space sooner. HOME Painting kids rooms: tips and tricks to get it right Family Features

Farmer Greg Guenther said the plant goes into a defensive mode when it rolls its own leaves, reducing the surface area to the sun and protecting its remaining moisture. ST. LOUIS (AP) The government slashed its expectations for U.S. corn and soybean production for the second consecutive month Friday,predicting what could be the lowest average corn yield in more than 15 years as the worst drought in decades grips major farm states. Nonetheless,Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack,in a statement supplied exclusively to The Associated Press,insisted U.S. farmers and ranchers remain resilient and the country will continue to meet demand as the global leader in farm exports and food aid. The U.S. Agriculture Department cut its projected U.S. corn production to 10.8 billion b ushels,down 17 percent from its forecast last month of nearly 13 billion bushels and 13 percent less than last year. That also would be the lowest production since 2006. The USDA,in its World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report,now expects corn growers to average 123.4 bushels per acre,down 24 bushels from last year in what would be the lowest average yield in 17 years. Soybean production is now forecast at 2.69 billion bushels,a 12 percent decline from last year and well off the 3.05 billion b ushels the USDA had expected last month. The expected average yield of 36.1 bushels per acre w ould be the lowest since 2003. Corn farmers had expected a record year just months ago,when they sowed 96.4 million acres the most since 1937. The USDA now predicts only 87.4 million acres will be harvested,although it notes the crop still could be the eighth-biggest in U.S. history. On Thursday,the U.N. food agency drew a direct correlation between price hikes in basic food commodities and the months of parched conditions in farm states. USDA cuts corn outlook as drought takes toll on farm states Special to the News-SunLAKELAND Twenty years ago,on Aug. 1,1992 D. Kevin Jones began his p osition as President and CEO of then MidFlorida Schools Federal Credit Union,a financial institution still in its fledgling state. Although in busin ess 38 years before hiring the new CEO,the s chool-based credit union serving Highlands and Polk educational systems had $100 million in assets, only five branches a nd was struggling to rebound f rom a difficult economy.The credit union had a good base but h ad experienced only modest growth. In August of 1992, armed with the experience from his previous vice p resident of finance position at an Indiana-based credit union and a youthf ul exuberance and passion for what he saw M idFlorida could be, Jones began his career with MidFlorida. I am excited at the challenge and opportunity to make t he most out of MidFloridas strengths. The geographical area and membership base,already MidFlorida recognizes milestones Jones See MFCU,page 6C When the DoNot-Call Implementation Act of 2003 was passed,it was supposed to herald a new era of silence as in,no more annoying dinnertime telemarketing calls. Based on the number of unsolicited calls our household still receives nearly a decade later,however,Id say the law has had only mixed success. T rue,the sheer volume of calls did drop significantly after we registered our home and cell phone numbers with the Federal T rade Commissions National Do Not Call Registry. But because so many types of organizations are exempt from the legislation and so many shady companies flout the rules,everyone I know still gets pestered relentlessly. There are steps you can take to curtail annoying calls; and just as important, ways to avoid falling for telemarketing scams: First,if you havent already done so,register your phone numbers with the registry,either online at www.donotcall.gov or by calling 888-382-1222 from each phone you wish to enroll. Although its illegal for telemarketers to call wireless phones,you may want to register them just in case. Be aware that certain organizations are exempt from the Do Not Call regulations barring contact. Charities,political organizations, telephone surveyors and companies with which youve done business in the last 18 months (and their affiliates and business partners) are still allowed to contact you unless you specifically request to be removed from their lists. Telemarketers have up to 31 days to update their lists,so if you're not currently registered it could take that long for calls to cease. After that,you can f ile complaints about unwanted calls at the Do Not Call website or phone number. Remember, though:Debt collectors may continue to call you, whether or not your number is registered. Here are a few additional tips for reducing call volume: Use Caller ID to screen incoming calls. By law, telemarketers must use some iteration of their business name in their onscreen ID,but many unscrupulous organizations will attempt to spoofyou by providing misleading identifying information.

Kevin was young and full of ideas,stated Dan Pierce, c urrent board member and chairman of the board when J ones joined the company. The credit union was at a tipping point. Kevin conv inced us that lowering loan rates and adding an advertising plan would show i mprovement in the credit unions bottom line quickly. W e had our reservations but decided his plan was worth pursuing to grow and strengthen the organization for the future.Soon after, t he company adopted a community bank approach and worked diligently to adjust to market needs by developing new products and services, focusing on customer service,convenience,and of course,rates. With effort on the part of all employees and oversight of the board,MidFlorida flourished year after year under Jonesdirection. Many of the staff,senior managers and board members in place when I started with the credit union,or who joined soon after,still work with MidFlorida. That continuity,along with a willingness of the team to support my initiatives,has made all the difference,Jones said. MidFlorida has enjoyed great success,but that success would not have been possible without a great team,from the popcorn ladies to the chairman of the board,he added. The stats of MidFloridas success are staggering:over 1,700 percent increase in assets (including the two proposed mergers),3,100 percent increase in capital (from less than $6 million to over $189 million),an expanded service area (serving all or portions of 14 Central Florida counties),38 branches and more than 600 employees (from an employee base of 75 in 1992) all while receiving consecutive high reviews from state and federal regulatory agencies during Jonestenure. I am proud of what we have accomplished so far but I still see tremendous potential for our company and am still motivated to see where we can go and what we can offer.The new expansion areas will transform MidFlorida into a regional credit union. Regardless though of the geography,our mission remains the same we still make every decision based on whats best for the membership,Jones remarked. Continued from page 1C the name or number you can either take the call or let it go to voicemail. If the line goes dead,that usually means it was a robo-call and there was no live operator available. E ither way,youll likely continue to receive calls unless you take action. If a message is left and you think the organization is legitimate,call them back to request being taken off their own internal Do N ot Call list,which theyre required to maintain by law or face steep fines. If you suspect the call is a scam,go straight to filing a complaint. You can also use your phone carriers c all-blocking function to prevent future calls from that number. However,this step wont do much good if someone is harvesting and selling your phone number to multiple telemarketers; plus,many carriers limit the number of callers you can block. And finally:You can notify specific sellers in writing that you wish to continue r eceiving their calls. Just be aware that some marketers may attempt to obtain such consent surreptitiously via innocent-seeming solicitations or emails. This is one more reason why its important to read every document and email carefully before signing or checking I agreeto the fine print. Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

Story. It goes like this: Dwight Howard travels to Los Angeles for back surgery four months ago, walks around Beverly Hills each day as part of his rehabilitation program, and routinely meets the same woman along the route. She would say, Come to the Lakers, come to the Lakers,Howard said. If shes watching, Im here. Your wish came true. Sure did. So did his hes out of Orlando. It took four teams, 11 other players, five draft picks and countless rounds of talks over many months, but the Orlando Magic decided that Friday was the right time to start over without the NBAs best center and end a saga that has dogged the franchise for what seems like an eternity. Howard is off to play alongside Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles, after a megadeal involving the Lakers, Magic, Philadelphia and Denver was worked out Thursday and completed Friday after the NBA reviewed and approved the particulars. It was just a very tough situation for everybody to let go, Howard said. Im finally glad that its over with. Myself and the Magic organization, we can all start over and begin a new career. Today is a fresh new start for all of us. As far as the other headliners involved, Andrew Bynum leaves the Lakers for Philadelphia and Andre Iguodala is heading to Denver. Are we taking a step back? Absolutely, we are, Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said. But were taking a step back with a vision. Even while otherwise busy at the London Olympics, Bryant quickly proclaimed that the Lakers are locked and loaded to bring back the title. He spoke with Howard on Friday morning, and interrupted his pursuit of a gold medal the Americans will play for another of those Sunday to talk about how the Lakers look very much like a major contender for another NBAtitle. Ill probably play two or three more years. Then the team is his, Bryant said. Im excited for the franchise because now they have a player that can carry the franchise well after Im gone. This should be his and he should want to accept that challenge. Time will tell. Howard, who may not be ready for the start of the season while continuing to recover from back surgery that he had performed in Los Angeles four months ago, plans to become a free agent next July. He could stay with the Lakers. He could end up in Dallas, which should have oodles of cap space. Maybe the Brooklyn Nets one of Howards preferred destinations throughout this saga find a way into the mix again. I told him this is a great place for him, Bryant said.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKEPLACID The waning days of summer are upon us. Well, at least for those of the gridiron who are now out on the various practice fields getting ready for a season t hat is less than three weeks away. The Lake Placid Green Dragons were finishing up t heir first week Friday, as head coach Jason Holden e nters his fifth season at the h elm as the longest-running head coach in the county, and looks to build from last seasons 2-8 mark. Its a new year and were working hard, he said. Our motto this season is One More.No matter how tired we are, what the situation is, you can always do one more. Which seems to be at least the case at the most important position, quarterback, where Robert Walton is progressing from his handful of starts as a sophomore last year. Hes grown and gotten bigger, Holden said. And hes also really been making the mental plays. Hes done a lot of work and learned to make better decisions. Were still going to run the ball a lot, running the wing Tformation, but were hoping to throw the ball some more this year too. The running game will see a multi-faceted attack with a number of different options. Marquavian Copeland, Jerry Fields and big-play threat Foster Walker will all see their share of touches and will be looking for holes provided by a big, though inexperienced line. Were real young there, with two sophomores and just one senior, assistant coach John Merlo said. We do have some size there though, we are pretty decent size wise. Names like Malikae McClean, Connor Wrenn and Christian Miller were named among those who will be looked on to pave the way on offense and plug the holes along the front on defense. The defensive backfield will also see some speed added as state qualifying hurdler Keplet Charite will be manning a cornerback slot, while Ricky Miller will add toughness at safety. And while the dawn of a new season brings about hope and while improvements are being seen, it will again be a tough road through the District 6-4Aschedule. Dragons gearing up See LP, Page 6D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAround 10 years separate the oldest to the youngest, but one common bond joined together dozens of Highlands County baseball players this summer. The once-in-a-lifetime experiences of winning a state championship and earning a trip to the Dixie World Series. Of particular note, obviously, were this years Dixie Junior Boys state champions, who were making it their fourth such experience in a row. But its worth noting the remarkable acheivements of all. The two older teams that earned the distinction of state champion, were a hodgepodge of local talent. The Pre-Majors and Majors squads time-worn, well-honed teams that had been playing together over the years. Rather, especially in the case of the Majors squad, they had been playing against one another over the years as old rivals Avon Park and Sebring came together for the common cause of representing the county. With sparing practice time together, as well as some former Blue Streaks getting over the discomfort of donning the Team Heartland red, they knocked off a bigger rival to each, and seemingly annual Florida state representative, Polk County. Sure, the Pre-Majors roster was predominantly fami liar with one another as Avon Park teammates, with two Green Dragons added to bo lster it. But again, this was new territory for them, prepping for a state tournament when most would normally be in the midst of a summer, trav el league schedule, or merely enjoying the couple months of freedom. Well-done World Series runs See DIXIE, Page 3D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt was the second to last event of the season Thursday, as the Sertoma Tour took to the Country Club of Sebring course under sweltering conditions. But as the temperatures went up, the scores reflected the season-long improvement across the board. Along the undulating fairways, not to mention greens, of the Country Club course, strong scores were brought in for each age group of the tour. The 82, 84 and 86 turned in by Sarah Liles, Savan Fisher and Chloe Nelson, respectively, would be contending scores ordinarily. But that trio would have to settle for a relatively distant second, third and fourth as they are in the 14-18 Girls group with no ordinary player. Aweek removed from her one-under 71 at Torrey Pines, and less than two weeks from her foray at the U.S. Kids Teen World Championships at Pinehurst, Kendall Griffin once again broke par, carding a blazing 69 over 18 holes for the win. In the 17-18 Boys, Colin Walkup didnt break par, but was well withing sight of it as his 75 held up for the win, while Will Bennett scored an 84 for second and Blake Fitch an 89 for third. Cole Berger took the top spot in the 15-16 Boys with another 75, staying just out of reach of the 78 brought in by Nic Staffieri in one of the days closer contests. Just three more shots back was Rhett Pooley with an 81, with Easton Davis82 right in the mix, along with Trenton Farrows 85. Another close race was seen in the 13-14 Boys with Sam Rogers 82 narrowly edging Coleman Nelsons 83, while Sam Weber-Callahan came in with an 89 for third and Jason Cannon a 90 for fourth. Ashley Engle continued her strong season, winning the 11-12 Girls with a 54 over a challenging nine holes, with Alyssa Armentrout working her way from a late joining of the tour and taking second with a 72. Another 54 also took the win in the 11-12 Boys age group, with Joseph Flood doing the honors, while Clayton Osha carded a 63 for second and John David Spiegel a 75 for third. The back and forth battle in the 9-10 Boys was ever compelling as Billy Carol got back into the top spot this week, halting Beckham Donovans multi-week winning streak, as he scored a 46 to Donovans 55. Zach Doorlag wasnt too much further back, with a 57 for third, while Jackson Griffin was fourth Sertoma keeps the heat on See GOLF, Page 4D

Then there were the youngsters in the AAAand Ozone ranks. Some still new to the sport itself, most not familiar with the tension and stage of a state tournament, much less the business and pressure of a trip to a World Series. And yet they all did it. Five different groups of ballplayers, home-grown sons, from this little neck of the woods in central Florida, made the cut and were off to different locales to represent the state on the biggest Dixie Baseball stage. Vying against champions, and sometimes runners up as well, from the 10 other Dixie states. The results were a mixed back, as it turned out. One team went two and out in the double elimination bracket format, with one other reaching the third round before bowing out. Another squad reached the Final Four of itstournament, while two wound up falling just short in the championship round. And even the quickest exit among the five teams saw the two games lost by a total of four runs. Anyone not in the know might look at the brackets from each of the World Series and notice that, hey, those Florida teams were all a pretty tough out. And they might comment that Florida must have some pretty good ballplayers down there. What they wouldnt know, necessarily, is that by saying that, they are also saying, Highlands County has some pretty good ballplayers down there. As the events of this summer showed, we certainly do.

Tannehill could be closing the gap on Matt Moore, who started the last 12 games last year for Miami (No. 27 in the APPro32) and was second on the depth chart behind Garrard. Despite Moores edge in experience, first-year Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said the gap between Moore and Tannehill wasnt very big. Its relatively close, probably, Philbin said. Moore was impressed with Tannehill. The kid went out there and moved the ball and put us in the end z one when we were in the red zone, Moore said. I know hes g ood and hes talented and hes got the build and mindset you want in a q uarterback. I just need to focus on my job and getting better and the rest will take care of itself. Tannehill, taken eighth overall in the draft, is the Dolphinsquarterback of the future, but hes hoping to convince his coaches to make him a starter right away. He had a strong start on Friday night. Hes poised, Clay said. I was surprised at how calm he was. He was in the huddle, laughing and joking around at times. Coming in as a rookie, having his first game, you could just tell he was out there having fun. Before his TD pass, a strike down the middle, Tannehill had a touchdown pass to wide receiver Roberto Wallace late in the second quarter overturned by instant replay. Two plays later, Tannehill missed Clay near the sideline on a fourthand-goal from the 3-yard line. He was 8 for 9 on his touchdown drive, the highlight was a nice touch pass to Wallace over a linebacker for 19 yards on third-and-11. The only incompletion on the drive was a pass that was batted down at the line of scrimmage. Tannehill, who finished the game with a 106.6 passer rating, entered with 3:16 left in the second quarter to the applause of a sparse crowd still sitting despite a driving rain. His first pass, on third-and-6, was thrown behind wide receiver Julius Pruitt and led to a three-and-out. I just have to go out and play my best, Tannehill said. Its small steps and just trying to be the best I can be. At the end of the camp, its up to the coaches. Philbin declined comment on Garrards injury. Along with Garrard, Dolphins starting linebacker Kevin Burnett also missed Friday nights game despite taking part in warmups. Backup offensive lineman Nate Garner was helped off the field in the fourth quarter after sustaining an ankle injury. Moore got the start in Garrards place and completed 7 of 12 passes for 79 yards with one interception for a rating of 43.4. Moore had some tough luck. He produced three first downs on his first drive, only to see Chad Johnson let a pass go through his hands on third-and-3 from the Tampa Bay 33. It was the only pass thrown in Johnsons direction. Youve got to make those catches and move those chains, Philbin said. Thats a perfect illustration of why the outcome ended up as what it was. Moores final pass midway through the second quarter was intercepted by rookie linebacker Lavonte David, but the ball was tipped at the line of scrimmage by defensive tackle Frank Okam. For the most part, I thought it went pretty smooth, Moore said. I thought we moved the ball well. We just need to tighten down some things. Ive just got to focus on getting better day in and day out. With the reps I get, Ive got to do well. The Dolphinssecond-round pick of the 2012 draft, tackle Jonathan Martin, also got extended playing time but had an up-and-down performance. Martin started at right tackle and played into the third quarter, long after the other starting offensive linemen left the game. Martin held up well in pass protection but also was flagged for two false starts. For Tampa Bay (No. 27), the game was a good start under new head coach Greg Schiano. The Bucs looked sharp offensively at the start of the game, scoring touchdowns on their first two possessions to take a 14-0 lead. We put a lot into it all the way, dating back to way back in the spring, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. It was our first chance to showcase it. I think we did a fairly decent job. Starting quarterback Josh Freeman left the game after playing only one series, completing 4 of 5 passes for 41 yards. LeGarrette Blount finished off the drive with a 1-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-goal. Bucs first-round pick Dou g Martin scored on a 2-yard run on Tampa Bays next drive and finished with 21 yards on seven carries. David, the Bucssecond-round pick, had a nice preseason debut in his hometown. In addition to his interception, he also had a tackle for loss and a special teams tackle. Hes done a real good job since weve started and I think he continued that tonight, Schiano said. He flew around out there. He looked comfortable, which is great. And for him to do it in his hometown is fun, too. Tampa Bays third-quarter field goal was set up by a 74-yard kickoff return by rookie seventh-round pick Michael Smith, a running back from Utah State.

C M Y K By EDDIE PELLS Associated PressLONDON U.S. Olympic leaders and their athletes are having such a great time at the London Games, theyd like to host a party like this, too, someday soon. We think the games need to come to America, and the sooner, the better, Larry Probst, chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee, said Saturday at a news conference. When the team returns home, a USOC panel will look into whether the federation should bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics or the 2026 Winter Games. The United States hasnt hosted the Olympics since the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City and hasnt hosted a Summer Olympics since 1996 in Atlanta. With 41 medals left to be awarded at the Olympics as of Saturday afternoon, the United States had won both the most overall (95) and gold (41) medals. Pleased as he was with that, USOC CEO Scott Blackmun also noted that Britain was in third place in the gold-medal count with 26 part of its best medal haul since the 1908 London Olympics. He acknowledged that competing on home turf can provide the home countrys athletes with a huge boost. It really gives the athletes life, Blackmun said. We expect Brazil will have quite a few athletes that will rise to the podium and have lifetime bests in four years at the Rio Games. Its a fact of life in the Olympic world, Blackmun said. Its one of the reasons wed like to host the games in the U.S. in the not-too-distant future. Americas last two bid cities New York for 2012 and Chicago for 2016 were roundly rejected by the International Olympic Committee. The USOC decided to pass on bidding for t he 2020 Games while it shored up its international relationships and resolved its long-running feud with the IOC about revenue sharing. Earlier this summer, the revenue issue was resolved and the USOC got serious about getting into the bid game again. The bid committee is expected to give its first report to the full USOC board at its quarterly meeting in December. Among the key issues will be whether to go for the Winter or Summer Games. Possible winter cities would include Denver, Bozeman, Mont., and Lake Tahoe. Summer candidates could include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco. Wed like to pull off a games just the way London did, Blackmun said. We need to talk about, should it be should it be 6, what kind of city should we look at? But we definitely look at this experience as something wed aspire to. Page 4DNews-SunSunday, August 12, 2012www.newssun.com DR.

Brody Hall was third with a 37, and dueling 40s saw a three-way tie for fourth between Jack DuPriest, Griffin Hall and Ian Frasier. The strong, as well as close, scores throughout the field are testament to the widespread talent being nurtured along on the Sertoma Tour. Which should make for a wild closing event, the twoday Tour Championship at Sun N Lake Friday and Saturday, Aug. 17 and 18. The event counts for double the points of the normal weekly events, which should lay the framework for much shuffling and shifting among the age group leaders. The Turtle Run course will be played Friday, with the tour wrap-up hitting the Deer Run course for all the marbles on Saturday.

NEWS-SUN-6155 By TALES AZZONI Associated PressWEMBLEY, England Oribe Peralta scored only 29 seconds into the Olympic final and added another goal in the second half to help Mexico upset Brazil 2-1 and win its first soccer gold Saturday. Peralta took advantage of a mistake by the Brazilian defense in one of the games first plays and shot a low right-footed shot into the net, scoring the fastest Olympic goal since FIFAbegan keeping records of the competition in 1976. The striker added the second with a firm header off a free kick in the 75th. Hulk scored for Brazil in injury time, but it was too late for a comeback. Brazil, the big favorite heading into the tournament, was also trying to win its first gold, which is the only soccer trophy the five-time world champions havent won. Mexico beats Brazil to win 1st Olympic soccer gold By DAVID BAUDER Associated PressNBC Sports is telecasting the final two days of the O lympic boxing tournament without announcers Bob Papa and Teddy Atlas in the arena following a dispute with international boxing officials. The International Boxing Association asked Papa and Atlas to move from their seats close to ringside to a broadcast booth farther away because they were very disturbing to boxing officials, even during bouts they were n ot calling, said the groups spokesman, Sebastien Gillot. He said the broadcasters claimed they didnt want to s tay anyway because no U.S. boxers were in the running. Its not clear why Papa and Atlas, who have at times been c ritical of the boxing judges and referees during the tourn ament, were suddenly judged too disturbing with only two days of boxing remaining. There are two sides to every story, NBC Sports spokesman Greg Hughes said. We will address the matter with the IOC after the games conclude. The NBC announcers will call the remaining 10 boxing matches off video piped into the International Broadcast Center in London. Thats not an unusual setup: many NBC announcers for some of the lower-profile Olympic sports call the games from a studio in New York. NBC said Saturday that its boxing reporter, Russ Thaler, will remain in the ExCel center in London for the concluding fights. NBCs status as the largest international rights holder had given the networks announcers prime seats relatively close to the ring. Other announcers worked out of booths farther back, which is where the boxing association told Papa and Atlas to move. Papa and Atlas have been critical of how international boxing rules, including the requirement of headgear for boxers and a point system based strictly on how many punches land, have turned the Olympic matches into fencing with gloves. They were particularly vehement in their thoughts during a bantamweight match involving Japans Satoshi Shimizu and Azerbaijans Magomed Abdulhamidov. The referee did not rule Abdulhamidov knocked out despite the fighter hitting the canvas six times, leading Atlas to proclaim that referee Ishanguly Meretnyyazov of Turkmenistan was favoring the Azerbaijain fighter. Everyone here should look at themselves and realize why this sport is considered a joke at this point, Papa said during his play-by-play. Judges declared Abdulhamidov the winner. The decision was later overturned on appeal and the referee expelled from the Olympics. Papa, during an interview on Friday, said he and Atlas sit ringside and sometimes second-guess themselves when they see some inexplicable decisions. What did I just look at there? Am I crazy? And Im sure that viewers feel the same way. Were trying to give the viewer some insight on what were seeing based on our area of expertise, he said. One of the reasons weve pointed out these inconsistencies in the refereeing and inconsistences in the scoring is because there are a lot of athletes with amazing stories who have had the rugs pulled out from under them in these Olympics. Once one of the most popular Olympic sports on television, boxing has slipped markedly in influence. In the United States, boxing is confined to the CNBC network. Although womens boxing was added this year, and produced gold medalist Claressa Shields of Flint, Mich., the American mens team is going home without a medal for the first time in the Olympics. The final 10 fights are medal-deciding bouts for the men. NBC continues boxing without announcers in arena Am I crazy? And Im sure that viewers feel the same way.BOBPAPA NBC boxing announcer

Now hes the next in line. Bryant said the Lakers should be poised to win now. The Magic, they might not be saying that for years. After an offseason when the Magic fired coach Stan Van Gundy and general manager Otis Smith, theyre now truly beginning anew. In 1996, the Magic watched Shaquille ONeal sign as a free agent with the Lakers. At least this time, when they lost someone with the Superman nickn ame, they got something back. Next season, and really subsequent seasons, are going to be about getting better every day, Hennigan said. Orlando got guard Arron Afflalo and forward Al Harrington from Denver, forward Moe Harkless and center Nikola Vucevic from P hiladelphia, and forward Josh McRoberts and guard Christian Eyenga from the Lakers. The Lakers acquired Howard, guard Chris Duhon and forward Earl Clark from Orlando. The Magic also traded guard Jason Richardson to Philadelphia. Orlando also gets five draft picks over five years. There will be no panic, Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. There will be no chaos. The Lakers pulled off the deal and somehow kept Pau Gasol in the process something many didnt expect when Los Angeles first starte d getting mentioned in the Howard trade mix. It makes the NBAthat much more exciting, Knicks forward and U.S. Olympian Carmelo Anthony said. Not everyone shared that sentiment. I really dont care, Thunder star Kevin Durant said. The trade was announced during the Spain-Russia semifinal matchup at the Olympics. Gasol scored 16 points, helping the Spanish team reach the gold medal game with a 67-59 win. Afterward, that seemed secondary. He was still with the Lakers, and now has the games most dominant big man alongside him. For a moment, gold-medal talk was pushed aside for NBAtitle chatter. I think its something that puts us in a position of being an extremely powerful team and a team with all the chances of going for the ring again, Gasol said. The 76ers got involved in trade talks about a month ago, first reaching out to the Magic to inquire about landing Howard themselves. Not long after realizing that wouldnt happen, the talks grew. And when Denver got involved, the pieces fell into place, although Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said he wasnt sure a deal would happen 48 hours before things actually got done. One of the things we needed to do was we needed to get a post presence, a guy who can score on the low block, give us size, rebounding, defense, said 76ers coach Doug Collins, in London working with NBC as an analyst for Olympic basketball. We think that Andrew is one of the top two NBAcenters in the league, so were thrilled about doing that. And were sad to lose Andre. He helped us win a lot of games and in the two years that Ive been with him. Collins wont wait long to see Iguodala in another uniform: The Nuggets open the season in Philadelphia on Oct. 31. Philadelphia believes it would have a chance to keep Bynum long term, noting that hes a native of neighboring New Jersey. Weve gotten bigger, weve gotten stronger and weve gotten more athletic than we were at this time last year, 76ers President Rod Thorn said. Andrew is the best center in the East. Anytime you have the best center, its a real plus. This is still a game that big men are very, very important in. For the Lakers to get Howard, they needed to give up the All-Star center Bynum theyve nurtured since he was a 17-year-old draft pick. After two straight second-round exits from the playoffs, the Lakers tore apart a very good team this summer in an attempt to build a great one a team that can give Bryant, a five-time NBAchampion who turns 34 next week, the chance to match Michael Jordans six rings next year. Andrew is a bright, hard-working man whos going to have a very successful and productive NBA career. And we wish him well in Philadelphia, Kupchak said. The Lakers already made one splash in this offseason, getting Steve Nash from Phoenix. So they got better at point guard, and did the same at center. Now the Lakers may have a roster that would rival the NBAchampion Miami Heat, Western Conference champ Oklahoma City and the rest of the NBAs best. Its crazy. It hasnt really hit me yet, Howard said. Im just happy to be here and Im going to make the best out of it. The Lakersstarting lineup now includes five former All-Stars with three MVPawards and four defensive player of the year awards. Unreal! Bryant said. Denver was thrilled to add Iguodala, who in turn said he was excited for whats next. Its not often you get the opportunity to improve your team by adding an All-Star player like Andre Iguodala, Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri said. Hes an Olympian, a great defender and a great all-around player. The Magic get a second-round draft pick from Denver next year, a first-round pick from either Denver or New York in 2014, a conditional first-round pick from Philadelphia and a conditional second-round pick from the Lakers in 2015, and a conditional first-round pick from the Lakers in 2017. Orlando also will have a $17.8 million trade exception to use over the next year. Howard averaged 20.6 points an d 14.5 rebounds in 54 regular-season games for Orlando last season. In eight seasons with the Magi c, he averaged 18.4 points and 13.0 rebounds. He entered last year as the subject of trade rumors, especially since he could have opted out of his deal at seasons end and become a free agent. He decided that he would n ot exercise that option, then found himself in another mess in April when Van Gundy said team officials told him that Howard wanted him fired. Howard denied it. Ultimately, it didnt matter. Van Gundys gone, Smith is gon e, and now so is Howard. Sometimes, things dont work out the way everyone hopes, and I think that was the case here, Hennigan said. We tried to establish a relationship with Dwight that was built on interpersonal exchanges. We always felt like that may evolve in one direction or another. Turns out, that direction w as west.

So we picked up a game with Lakeland Christian this year and the district looks pretty tough. Clewiston was really big last year and should be again, Dunbar and Booker have great speed and Im pretty sure Dunbar was pretty y oung last year too. And Avon Park always has talent and with a new coach this year, who knows what theyll bring. The year gets started with a visit from Celebration on Friday, Aug. 31 before a home and away against Moore Haven and Cardinal Mooney the following two weeks. The Dragons then play at Dunbar in a district contest Sept. 21 and travel to Lakeland Christian the following Friday. Then comes the crux of the district schedule at home versus Booker on Oct. 5, at Avon Park Oct. 12, home against Clewiston Oct. 19 and at LaBelle Oct. 26. That schedule seems that much tougher when its realized that the bye week doesnt come until the district run is done. Lake Placid has the week off after the LaBelle game before closing out the season at Lemon Bay on Nov. 9. And though there will be some hard knocks ahead, this Green Dragon team will work itsway through and provide some highlights along the way and will always be ready for one more.
