Billie Hetherton and board of directors members Mary Foy and Carol Bogdan have volunteered their time before and since the doors opened. All three worked together in Human Services before retiring. Having worked with many county agencies and having run a food program for a while,we were well aware of the communitys needs and the difficulty of leaving town to get food,Foy said.

The team holds only 20 dancers,13 of which are already veterans to the team,leaving only a few slots for new talents. The majority of these women are older than her.

She continues to give God all of the glory and looks forward to returning home soon. Thanks again and God bless each one of you. Brenda Anderson Avon ParkFool me once but not twiceEditor: As you prepare to choose your presidential candidate for the November election, you might wonder why former President George W. Bush will not be present at the Republican convention in Tampa. Perhaps, Robert Reich a professor of public policy at the University at Berkele,y has hit the nail on the head when he wrote: Republicans want to obliterate any trace of the administration that told America there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and led us into a devastating war; turning a $5 trillion projected budget surplus into a $6 trillion deficit; gave the largest tax cut in a generation to the richest Americans in history; handed out a mountain of corporate welfare to the oil and gas industry, pharmaceutical companies, and military contractors like Halliburton (uniquely benefiting the vice p resident); whose officials turned a blind eye to WallS treet shenanigans that led to the worst financial calamity since the Great Crash of 1929 and then persuaded Congress to bail out the Street with thel argest taxpayer-funded giveaway of all time. Of course, the Republicans want you to believe it was the current president's fault,b ut as I am often prone to say ou may have a right to your opinion, but not to your own facts! If you think a rich fat cat like Mitt Romney will be caring about your financial situation, you might question why people like me, who are retired, pay a higher rate of tax than the man with secret accounts in the Caymans, Switzerland, and other tax havens. Join me in voting for a fair deal for the working people and not tax cuts for those making above $250,000 a year. Vote Obama/Biden in November. Chet Brojek SebringLegislature is rotten to the coreEditor: The creation of small state entities all over the state of Florida, called drainage districts, have violated the property rights of thousands Floridians and will take years to clean up the mess. The drainage districts should all be returned to county control and a complete investigation begin of all dealings with the buying and selling by those state entities. I suspect that the Sunshine laws have been violated many times. The giving of political plums to state senators and state representatives at the expense of the taxpayers and property owners has to be stopped if the state is to avoid bankruptcy. The Republican-controlled state legislature, after creating the drainage districts, then promoted change in districts codes that gave them t he right to tax unsuspecting villages, putting many thou-s ands of properties into foreclosure. Voting rights of property owners were also violated; because in a vote for code change, only regis-t ered voters of the district were allowed to vote. Most of the property owners did not live in the district, thereby violating the propertyo wner voting rights; they had no say in any code change. Thus, a very corrupt vote controlled by the Republican-controlled state legislature. The Republican-controlled legislature is also trying to change laws that reflect high water and low water that would give control to very large land owners at the expense of the state tourism industry and all Florida property owners. It is time that all Florida property owners change their corrupt Republican-controlled state legislature to one which would reflect their interest. The last trumpet call This band of brothers: The United States Marines: The millions before and the millions who will come after and those who died so very young but will continue their beautiful journey into space and time with their Supreme Commandant, their last farewell will be the beautiful sound of taps fading off into eternity. Many eons into the future they will again hear the sound of trumpets, when the beautiful spaceship earth completes its journey into space and time, they will greet those who will come after with the words Semper Fidelis, Semper Idem. Standing Guard The Lone Bugler. Billie E. Jewett SebringA record absence of factsEditor: In Tina Dupuys column of Aug. 5, she gives a number of fictional quotes. No less than 23 times, she tells us w hat various people would say, or would do, or what them edia or political parties would say or do. This could be a record for the absence of facts on what anyone really said or did. O n June 28, Dupuy released a column, GOP: Boldly Offering Solutions To Our Nations Symptoms, which was not carried locally.S he claims that Republicans are obsessed with terrorism and goes on to say that no Americans were killed by terror attacks last year. FBI statistics tell a different story on American deaths in 2011. Worldwide, 17 private citizens were killed, 14 injured and three kidnapped by terrorist organizations. This does not include military personnel. Seven people are listed as Domestic Terror Fugitives. If these figures dont get your attention, there were 438 attacks on energy infrastructure, which includes tankers and pipelines. Also, 120 Americans were murdered in Mexico in 2011 but this isnt considered terrorism. Dupuy says that Republicans are obsessed with China. Just as she claims that no Americans were killed by terror in 2011, she argues that China killed no Americans. Actually, it appears that Chinese products are killing Americans, although the exact number is hard to pin down. According to the New York Times, 62 U.S. deaths in 2007-2008 were linked to a blood thinner made with Chinese ingredients. The lack of quality control in Chinese products is notorious enough that some law firms now advertise themselves as Chinese Product Attorneys. Tina Dupuy used to live in Los Angeles and recently moved to New York City. There is no special reason we need her opinion here. Dale Gillis Sebring Those who long for the days of bipart isan legislating in Washington, and for when federal policies actually did some good, should lionize the 1996 welfare reform bill passed by a Republican-controlled Congress and signed into law byP resident Bill Clinton. In seeking to break the cycle of dependency the public dole had created, the legislation endedw elfare as a federal entitlement. Instead, the program was converted to block grants to states with the requirement thatr ecipients receiving financial support must also look for and find work. ... T he reforms proved to be a tremendous success. Over the next decade, total enrollees in the newly renamed Temporary Assistance for Needy F amilies (TANF) program dropped from 12.2 million to 4.5 million, and caseloads declined 54 percent. In July, though, the Department of Health and Human Services quietlyi ssued a memo that it would modify the work requirements that were at the heart of the 1996 reforms. HHS says this is inr esponse to several states, some with Republican governors, who have requested waivers to the federal law so they canh ave the flexibility to design their TANF programs to suit their needs. ... W hats most troubling, though, is that HHS has asserted the authority to make these changes, creating a potentially open-ended process by which executive branch bureaucrats can slowly erode thet ough but effective 1996 legislation by edict. That assertion is of questionable legality. There is no explicit power authorized in the TANF law. HHS SecretaryK athleen Sebelius believes language about waiving state reporting requirements gives her authority. The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, points to statutory language that itb elieves expressly forbids the secretary from waiving work requirements. If the waivers are as beneficial and u ncontroversial as HHS claims, the administration should work with Congress to change the law through thel egislative process, not bureaucratic fiat, to keep welfare reform a bipartisan affair. A n editorial from the Panama City NewsHerald. Keep welfare reform bipartisan The Obama administration may not be gutting welfare reform, as Mitt Romney has accused it of doing. But it is opening the door to some potentially major surgery. Way back in December of 1 998, I wrote a column titled Perky Finds a New Home. It told the tale of the energetic beagle puppy wed brought home from Tampaa nd welcomed into our lives. Over the years Perky b ecame part of a number of columns I wrote. Its kind of an occupational hazard thatc omes with living with me. If he objected to how he was p ortrayed he managed to keep it to himself, though maybe it explains some oft he so called accidents that happened on occasion. Perky became my living d oor bell. Someone merely had to approach the front d oor and my beagle would start baying, letting me know that someone was on the property. Sometimes it seemed that someone onlyh ad to think about approaching the door before he started his howling. Or maybe he sensed a random air molecule wanted to get inside the house and decided to let me know about it. P erky enjoyed people food when he could get it. W hen I started using a meat slicer, he quickly learned what it sounded like and would come into the kitchen when he heard it running.H ed stand next to the counter, hoping for meat dropping on the floor, knowing that if he was patient I would feed him scraps from the slicer. Ia lways made him sit first but his patience was always rewarded. We had to watch him if we left food lying around. Once, when my younger sister was visiting, I had to leave a piece of chocolate cake unattended while dealing with something. She swears Perky was calculating how to outsmart her and get to the cake. Thinking quickly, she outsmarted him by covering the cake with a bowl. But it was a near thing. At some point I learned Perky liked coffee or at least my coffee. He would get into my office chair and lap up any coffee left in my cup. At least once he rested his paw on my computer keyboard while there, and I am forced to wonder if he was surfing the Web when I wasnt around. As Perky got older, he w as forced to slow down from his busy ways. Arthritis a nd a heart condition curtailed his activities to a certain extent. When John andA manda came to visit with their three excited puppies, P erky would regard them as an old man might view rambunctious children in hisp resence. One weekend, he appeared to have some sort o f stomach upset. When medicine didnt resolve it, I b rought Perky to the vet. After an examination I was given devastating news: a fast growing tumor, squashing his intestines. Surgeryw as ruled out due to his heart condition. It was a matter of time. We worked to make the next few weeks as comfortable for Perky as we could. I cooked him rice and chick-e n, two things he appeared to be able to eat. We silently c leaned up his messes as he was unable to get outside in time. He grew thin and weak in spite of our efforts He took to lying in my o ffice when I was in there, wanting nothing more than company. Then the day came that he didnt have the strength to move from myo ffice to the kitchen, and he refused to eat or drink. I kept watch over him as he seemed to fade before my eyes. One day, weary, I went to take a nap while he lay in my office. In that hour, Perky breathed his last and left to wait for us at the Rainbow Bridge, leaving a sad family to mourn his passing and rejoice in his long life. (The Rainbow Bridge is a poem about pets that leave this life. Google the term to find it. Be prepared to sniffle.) Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK At about 11 a.m. Saturday a resident on South Carolina Street,by the intersection with Purcell Street,began trimming a large tree in his backyard. Climbing a tall ladder he was above the power lines coming from the street into his home. One limb he sawed free fell directly onto the wires, snapping them so they fell live into the street. Randy Knight and James Hamilton,nearby neighbors, said the live wires popped and sparked up and down South Carolina Street. Thank goodness no one was hurt,Hamilton said. And the transformer didnt blow. Hamilton described how residents cut off power into their homes,avoiding possible electric fires. The street lights were going on and off,said Knight,whose daughter made the original emergency call. The power lines were everywhere. By press time,police officers and fire fighters on the scene were waiting for Progress Energy to come and shut the power and repair the broken wires. R egional Medical Center in Sebring.

Kennedy and his partners w ant to turn the area into a private club where families can come to enjoy the out-d oors and take part in popular sports that they cant take part in elsewhere. F or example,there will be ATV and dirt bike trails and m ud bogging holes; an outdoor shooting range and an archery range; a special areaf or lawn mower and go-cart racing,a field for radio-cont rolled models and a golf driving range. Kennedy added that nature walks,a foot race obstacle course,a beach ands wimming area,fishing areas,horse back riding t rails and protected playground spaces for children and a drive-in theater area lso planned. Also part of the vision are ball fields, p aintball areas and a war reenactment area. Special activities are to be i ncluded. For example,tractor tug-of-wars,fireworks and laser shows and car and tractor shows. Space is being set aside f or festivals,group events, music concerts and swap meets.

DaveArmstrong,who is our truck driver,and Juan Osorio,w ho is our warehouse coordinator. All the rest are volunteers.H elp neededW orking in the office and managing the financial aspect of this not-for-profit 501(co peration,Bogdan is reminded of the importance of havi ng the financial backing of the community. Without the participation of the communi-t y in the form of donations, they could not keep the doors o pen even with the grants that Foy writes and HFB receives. If we could have 500 to 1,000 people committed tog iving $10 per month,just think of what that could do to m eeting the needs of our families,Bogdan said. The expenses would be more thanc overed and allow us to purchase more food. O perating expenses rent, electricity,water,maintenance and improvements of t he warehouse,truck,refrigeration and office supplies all directly relate to getting food to people. Right now,there is a great n eed for a cooler to store fresh produce and other refrigeration items. The present cooler is small and also has required repairs of over$ 300. A new 16-by-20-foot cooler costs $14,000, B ogdan said. If someone or several people could meet this need,H FB would be deeply grateful. For food to get to the peop le,the refrigeration truck must be kept in good repair. I t recently cost close to $700 for refrigeration repairs. It must be filled with fuel( amounting to $600-$800 per month.) Presently,Bill Jarrett F ord provides one fill-up a month,for which HFB is grateful. With the weakened economy and no promise of recove ry in sight anytime soon, HFB and the pantries it servi ces are seeing record numbers of people who need help. With grocery prices going up everyday and the droughts i n the Midwest,the needs are only going to increase,Foy said. T hose considered middle classare suddenly finding themselves in need because of loss of jobs,yet,not qualifying for services. We are already seeing this. Many are working parttime jobs without any benefits,or their hours have been cut,Foy said. For example,i f you have a working couple and one loses his job,since t he other one is still working, they do not qualify for assistance; yet,they are payingb ills and eating.Feeding AmericaHFB does not operate a lone. It is affiliated with Feeding America,the largest, most well-known domestich unger relief organization in the United States. This association with Feeding America (Tampa Bay organization) enables us to purchase food through them. Also,at the corporate level,t hey have contracts with various grocery food chains, w hich entitles HFB to pick up food free from Publix, Walmart,Winn Dixie andS weetBay,Foy said. HFB pays for the food f rom Feeding America and the food pantries pay 19 cents per pound. They are not s elling to the pantries that distribute the food. This is a shared maintenance with the food pantries. But,it doesnt even coverq uite half the expense, Bogdan said. Those coming to the pantries,though they must qualify,do not pay for food. H FB is presently partnering with 23 local pantries; a mong them Manna M inistries in Lake Placid,the Nazarene Church in Sebring and Adventist Community Services in Avon Park where Kyle Sager is director anda grees that along with volunteers,the main need is financ ial. HFBs truck makes a circuit through Avon Park,S ebring,Lake Placid and Wauchula and picks up free f ood from the grocery stores. It also makes runs to Feeding America where they purchase p allets of food. Once HFB has a larger cooler,they would love to partner with local farmers and growers for fresh produce also. W hen the food is brought to the warehouse,all the State Department rules are strictly adhered to. HFB follows a chart for e ach type of food to know the safe dates. When necessary, i tems are discarded immedia tely. And yet we work very hard to make sure nothing is wasted,Foy said. We call the pantries and tell them toc ome and get it free if there are baked goods or produce i n abundance.. Unlike a food pantry,the bankhas the ability toa mass,store and distribute large volumes of food. T hrough grants,mobile food pantries serve low-income communities,such as recentl y in Lake Placid where more than 14,000 pounds of food were given. Another will take place in Sebring at the end of September. You never know how you have affected someones life just by feeding them,Sager said. It truly makes a difference.

H is enthusiasm and appreciation for Heartland Food Banks service to the community is immeasurable. I dont know what I w ould do without them.

Front row, left to right, Mary Grace Bates, Shannon Huber and Dani Daigle. By KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressTAMPA Theres still time left in the preseason to make some tweaks, with neither Tennessee nor Tampa Bay where they want to be at the quarterback position yet. For the Titans, Friday night was supposed to be a coming-out party for secondyear Washington product Jake Locker in his first NFL start. Meanwhile, the Buccaneers were hoping their second preseason game would be one in which Josh Freeman would begin to find chemistry with his revamped receiving corps. The result? Acombined 8 for 21 passing in the Titans 30-7 win. There is disappointment personally, said Locker, who was 4 for 11 with an interception playing in all but one series of the first half. But with the guys doing so well on the run game and the defense doing so well, we still found ways to score points and have a big lead going into the second half. So that was encouraging. Freeman, whose team took an early 7-0 lead on his 2-yard touchdown pass to Mike Williams before trailing off the rest of the way, said he isnt panicking about where the offense is right now. s definitely a chance to go out and get some gamelike experience and learn from it, said Freeman, who was 4 for 10 for 21 yards. Point blank, thats what the preseason is about. Its tuneup games; its a chance for the coaches to go out and evaluate guys. I thought a number of guys stepped up tonight. And also for the Titans. Chris Johnson ran for two touchdowns and Rob Bironas kicked three field goals as Tennessee (No. 21 in the AP Pro32) capitalized on some early turnovers to seize control after the Bucsearly score. The Titans turned two first-half turnovers by the Bucs (No. 26 It was about defense. These guys came out and got a bunch of three-and-outs, Titans coach Mike Munchak said. They got two turnovers and it led to points for us ... Thats encouraging for us to see. Munchak said Locker made a bad decision on the one throw but otherwise bounced back well. Defensively, Tennessee linebacker Zach Brown and tackle Jurrell Casey led the way with six tackles, while linebacker Dekoda Watson had four stops and a sack for Tampa Bay. The bigger issue for the Bucs was running back LeGarrette Blount leaving the game late in the first half with a groin injury. But afterward coach Greg Titans beat Bucs 30-17 as QBs seek consistency See BUCS, Page 4B By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The pressure of maintaining the streak is gone, though the standard of excellence is not forgotten. A nd so, as the Lady Dragons get set for the 2012 volleyball season, it is business as usual in some ways, but a fresh new start as well. For six straight years, Lake P lacid had been defending district champions before falling just short to DeSoto last season. The team did make up for that by winning the district tournament, but the streak had been broken. S ix top players from that squad were lost to graduation, and though they are not exactly starting from scratch, a new era has begun. e are rebuilding, thirdyear head coach Linette Wells said at Fridays practice. And this is the first year that I really feel Ill be c oaching. There had always been strong players and leaders who had been part of the team and system since before I started. For the first time, this is really a whole team of my players. And while there are many new faces taking their turns d uring the days hitting drills, there is some returning exper ience. Shelbi Bertram and Samantha Phypers are the lone seniors on the squad, and logged minutes last year, as did juniors Tiffani Broder and Breauna Corley. A nd perhaps even more of a benefit in that the returning experience also come with a lot of size, making for what should be a strong front line. But other than that, its going to be a whole new ballgame. This group really works together as a team, Wells said. We have had good teamwork in the past, but there was always a player or two who were the focus. We really dont have that and so it will need to be a real, full team effort and thats what they are showing. Sorting through the collection of new players has also revealed an unexpected depth Fresh new start for Lady Dragons See LP, Page 3B Courtesy photo The Red Devils work on their offense as new head coach Lee Brown keeps a watchful eye on things. By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunAVON PARK It would be easy to bring up last season, or the fact that the last winning season in football for Avon Park was back in 2005. To first year Avon Park head coach Lee Brown, however, the past is the past and he is working on the now and looking toward the future. With that, there is no question what the ultimate goal is for this Red Devils football team. It is not a future goal to be accomplished in two or three years, but rather an immediate goal he firmly believes can be accomplished this year. The playoffs. Brown is no stranger to making the post season, winning two state championships in Missouri and making the playoffs every year he has coached high school football. This will be accomplished, according to Brown, by improving on accountability and passion. Making sure players hold themselves accountable for their assignments and the execution of those assignments. By holding the players accountable, it helps them to develop a passion for competing. e don't practice without a purpose, Brown said. That is why we try to connect everything to something either inside the game or outside the game, conversely, if you have purpose, you have passion. Brown has been pleased with how the players have embraced each other. He cited that players take notes during the meetings and make sure that their teammates have those notes. Most obvious was that many players stayed after practice to continue working together. Avon Park will be running primarily a one-quarterback offense, but that does not mean that others may have plays as the quarterback, depending on specific packages packages designed to get playmakers to touch the ball as many times as possiAll eyes ahead for Red Devils See AP, Page 4B By STEVE REED A ssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Make no doubt about it: Cam N ewton is expecting some special things from the Carolina Panthersoffense this season. So he was encouraged to see his first-team offense bounce back from a lackluster performance last week with an impressive showing Friday night in a 23-17 win over the Miami Dolphins, an effort which could prove to be a springboard for the rest of the season. Carolinas first team offense was near perfect in scoring two touchdowns and a field goal in three possessions before getting the rest of the night off. Thats the type of efficiency the Panthers had come to expect last year after finishing the season seventh in the league in total offense and fifth in points scored. It was a big difference between this week and last week, Newton said. Newton led Carolinas high-powered offense to 17 first-quarter points and outplayed rookie Ryan Tannehill, who was making his first preseason start for the Dolphins. Newton looked extremely sharp, completing 8 of 11 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown as the Panthers (No. 20 in the APPro32) jumped all over the injurydepleted Dolphinsdefense early. Last yearsAPOffensive Rookie of the Year threw a touchdown pass to DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart scored on a 2-yard plunge before he and the rest of the Carolina starting offense exited with 1:12 left in the first quarter. Last week I felt kind of rushed, Newton said. Coach (Ron Riverat going to be in that long and I kind of panicked to a degree. I didnt let the game come to me. Today I knew I had a lot more time to work and when you know that youre in there for longer than a couple of series you try to let the game come to you. Tannehill had an inconsistent night for the Dolphins (No. 27 He played the entire first half and led six possessions four of which ended in three-and-out. He found himself under heavy duress most of the game as the Panthers sacked him three times and batted down three balls at the line of scrimmage.

C M Y K By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI BEACH Dwyane Wade says he looked at what LeBron James did for USABasketball this summer and marveled. Wade was a spectator instead of a teammate when the U.S. won its second straight Olympic gold medal. Wade could not play while recovering from knee surgery but was in London for part of the Olympic tournament, and he says James made playing at a high level seem effortless. Wade, James and the rest of the Miami Heat will open training camp late next month, when the official defense of the teams NBA championship begins. Wade is hosting an NBA fantasy camp this weekend for people who spent $12,500 to get coached by, among others, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and Indianas Tom Crean who coached Wade at Marquette. s on an amazing run, Wade said. When youre on these kind of runs, you enjoy it. You keep going because you dont know when its going to stop. I think hes just enjoying it right now. Hes doing all this stuff without thinking about it. Hes breaking records. Hes in the history books. Hes not thinking about it; hes just doing it. Hes at a gear that Ive seen myself at before when it just feels easy. Hes just a gear above everyone. Soon, Wade hopes to be back at his usual gear. Hes starting to hit the peak of his offseason schedule. Wade hosts his annual ades World weekend for kids in Chicago next week, then begins his book tour in New York on Sept. 4. Wade spent much of the past year writing a book about his experience as a father and the custody fight for his two sons. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, August 19, 2012Page 3B HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 1 1 9 9 8 8 2 2 STANLEY STEEMER CARPET; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 8/19/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 5 5 4 4 0 0 and variety of choices. Wells noted that there are a number of girls who look to stand out on the back line, notably sophomores Shannon Huber and Danielle Daigle along with freshman Mary Grace Bates. (Bates thing, Wells said. Shes a great athlete who can do just about anything out there. She can hit, set, pass and her serves are impressive. Which will have her manning the most versatile of p ositions on the court, the Libero. So the front is pretty well s et, with Phypers and Corley being the anchors, with ample help from the likes of Bertram, Raveen Gobourne a nd Jacalyn Baldwin. The back line will see Huber, Daigle and Bates along with Joanna Sanchez and Rachel Alejandro lending very capable support. The setter spot, meanwhile, is also showing some depth and variety, with three girls vying for the position. Though that most important cog is still up in the air a s Broder, Andrea Barajas and Abigail Samperi each take their turn setting up the hitters in practice. They are all capable, have the hands and ability, Wells said. But we have been battling injuries. Tiffani( Broder) had back surgery and is just now returning. Abigail separated her should er and has just recently gotten back to practicing full time. S o while there is talent to choose from, lack of time and experience will likely make it a work in progress early on. The first step toward that, and to settling on the starting setter spot, begins Tuesday at the annual Preseason Classic tournament at Sebring, where the Dragons will join the hostB lue Streaks, Avon Park and Okeechobee for the first oncourt competition of the new year. Lake Placid will face the Lady Brahmans at 6 p.m. w hile Sebring and the Lady Devils square off in the nightcap, before the tournament concludes Thursday. The girls are excited and a little nervous, but Im t elling them theres no pressure, Wells said. This is really just to see what weve got, get some game time experience and see where we are at and what well need to work on. And I also need to see which setter is going to best move the offense. But even with the slew of new faces, inexperience and the realization of rebuilding, the expectations havent been diminished. We have the players and they all get along and work very well together as a team, Wells said. It might b e a bit of a process, but by the end, I fully expect us to b e competing to bring the district championship back to Lake Placid. Continued from 1B N ews-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Mary Grace Bates strength of versatility will be put to good use as the Libero for Lake Placid this season. News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE Left: Andrea Barajas is one of three Lady Dragons vying for the starting setter position on this years team. Above: Shannon Huber will be among a young, though strong, group of backline defenders for the Lady Dragons. LP young, but ready for challenge He finished 11 of 23 for 100 yards. The one promising highlight for Dolphins fans came on Miamis third possession when Tannehill completed three third-andlong passes to keep the drive alive. Running back Daniel Thomas culminated the 15play, 71-yard drive with a 1 -yard touchdown run. Tannehill believes the Dolphins have the potential to be a quality offensive team. ere this close, Tannehill said, holding his finger and thumb a halfinch apart. Its so close, and its frustrating, but you can get past it. Its a preseason game, and youre that close. If we can go out and cut back one mistake each drive, well be moving the ball down the field and scoring points. After the game, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said his starting quarterback remains uncertain and that hes still not sure when veteran David Garrard will be back on the field. ere going to watch t he tape, take a good hard look, and see where we are, Philbin said. Matt Moore didnt do a nything to help his own cause. H e completed 5 of 15 p asses for 57 yards. Fourth-stringer Pat Devlin made the best of his limited action with a 6-yard touchdown pass to rookie Rishard Matthews. Devlin had a chance to win the game but his final pass was intercepted in the end zone by R.J. Stanford with 4 seconds left. Theres no doubt about who is the Panthers starting quarterback. Newton didnt run at all this game he didnt need to but found plenty of open receivers. After Carolinas first drive ended with a 49-yard field goal by Justin Medlock, Newton led two crisp and effective touchdown drives. He connected on passes of 15 yards to Brandon LaFell and 18 yards to tighte nd Ben Hartsock to set up a 2-yard touchdown run by Stewart. A39-yard pass interference penalty on Miami cornerback Sean Smith led to Carolinas next score as Newton rolled out and found Williams for a 9-yard t ouchdown pass. Williams caught the ball in stride, raced around right end and dived to get the ball inside the pylon for a 17-0 lead. o be able to come out of the game at the end of the first quarter because things were going well is ideal, Panthers offensive tackle Jordan Gross said. It was a good performanceo ffensively. It would have been fun to see what we could have done if we had more time. P hilbin isnt pleased with the play of his defense t hrough two games. Our biggest concern is g etting off the field, Philbin said. We havent s topped anybody yet. We havent gotten off the field on third down, we havent tackled real well. We havent had a lot of pass rush. I guess Id better stop there.

Even before that score, Jacksonville (No. 31 in the APPro 32) saw continued progress from second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who outperformed Drew Brees of the Saints during the first half. Gabbert completed 13 of 16 passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns, the first a 16-yard strike to rookie Justin Blackmon, who was making his preseason debut. Brees was 10 of 13 for 133 yards and one touchdown, an 8-yard pass to Devery Henderson. Undrafted rookie Travaris Cadet had 90 yards from scrimmage and a TD for New Orleans (No. 9 in the APPro 32). Cadets score on a 24yard reception from Chase Daniel gave New Orleans a 24-20 lead with under 2 minutes remaining, but Palmer quickly drove Jacksonville back down the field with the help of pass interference calls against Jose Gumbs and Cord Parks. The second penalty put the ball at the New Orleans 6. Afalse start penalty backed Jacksonville up to the 11, and Palmer threw three incompletions before finding Elliot in the end zone on a last-gasp play. Josh Scobee had field goals of 36 and 47 yards, the second giving Jacksonville a 20-17 lead late in the third quarter. Jaguars edge Saints 27-24 Wade says LeBron made Olympics seem effortless

Blount took a shot to his l eft leg late in the second quarter, and stayed down on the field for several minutes before finally ambling to his f eet and gingerly walking off the field flanked by trainers. s not a knee, its more up in his groin area. He just got bent a funny way Schiano said. LeGarrettes a tough kid and I dont think iti s something that will sideline him too long. But if it d oes, well deal with that. Blount said he wasnt stressing over it. Ill be back soon. Ill be good, he said. I havent h ad an injury like it. Ive had nicks and bruises. Thats kind of what it is. ... It hurt.I s just something that were going to have to look into t omorrow Though most of Tampas starters had been pulled at the time of his injury Blount, last years starting running back, darted through the right side of the line and was struck by a defender on his leg as he dived forward. He didnt return to the game, but remained sitting on the sideline in uniform during the second half. If Blount does have to miss any time, the Bucs can be encouraged by the continued productive preseason of Boise State rookie tailback Doug Martin, who led the team with 23 yards on seven carries. In his second season, L ocker was looking to i mpress the coaching staff enough in hopes of earning the starting job over veteranM att Hasselbeck. B ut he got off to a very rocky start. Locker had a serviceable outing replacing Hasselbeck in the Titansloss to open the preseason last week, but completed 1 of his first 4 attempts against the Bucs. Locker did have a few highlights, his biggest coming two series after his pick when he scrambled 21 yards on a broken play to set up a 14-yard touchdown run by Johnson to make it 7-7 late in the first quarter. The play capped a dominating five-play, 71-yard drive that took just 2:26. Locker had his best throw of the game during that series, completing an 11-yard pass to Craig Stevens. But Lockers struggles stuck out more. They included him failing to lead his team into the endz one early in the second q uarter after Titans defensive end Leger Douzable recovered a fumble by Tampa backup quarterback Dan Orlovsky on the Bucs10. Johnson didnt have the same troubles producing when he got a chance to s core, adding a second 14yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter that was setup by Chris Hawkinsinterception of Orlovsky. Johnson finished with 46 yards on 10 carries. F ollow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/khightower Continued from 1B Bucs not too worried about Blount ble. An example of this was during practice when quarterback Ryan Dick was returning punts and kickoffs. e meld the offense and d efense to the talent and skill sets of the players, said Brown. We match packages to player's strengths to ensure that the players go out with confidence. Last year, Avon Park went 3-3 in District 6-4A. This year there are only five district games during the last seven weeks of the season, with the last game against non-district opponent and county rival S ebring. Brown stated that there is not any pressure about the Sebring game. Either you can do it or you can't, he said toward his understanding of the rivalry. There is not a person in this town that wants more for this team or expect more than I do, said Brown. But he stressed that he is more concerned about the teams in the district and that the Sebring game will not have any bearing, either winning or losing, on making the post season. Brown wants his players to focus on being proactive, first things first, and winwin. The win for the player is that if they do their assignment to the best of their ability, it helps the team to do itsbest. e cannot get too caught up in the outcome against an opponent. Brown said to his players. Whether we win or lose, w e have another game next week. The goal over the first four weeks of the season is to get better at what they are good at and keeping the team confident when the district games start. Though there may be some things they may not do well, he wants them to have the ability to position themselves to the things they do well. This upcoming year is not the only focus for Brown, as he looks towards the future of Avon Park football. eams at the high school level are based on attendance; he said. There is nothing I can about that. I have to recruit guys to play that are in this school to the best of our ability. The interest level is extremely high, but the awareness level of what it takes to compete is not. An example of this was that approximately 130 students signed up to play, but many were eliminated because they did not meet the academic criteria. So that means we, in the future, need to do a better job of raising the awareness in respect of what it takes to come out here to compete, said Brown. H e went on to explain that in many places there is a system in place for the transition from middle school to high school, and that there is currently a system under construction here to bridge that gap and to captivate those students that they normally would lose. I want to make myself visible so that they can be aware that options exist, said Brown. Once they are aware, we can now connect them to the system that we have in place. To help them stay academically eligible, socially eligible and then athletically eligible.

C M Y K O n the fun-o-meter,d probably rank back-toschool shopping right above getting a flu shot and preparing income taxes.N ever mind the hassle of figuring out what our kids need for the coming school year and dragging them to the mall,its just so expen-s ive. For example,our son insists that we replace his baseball glove and bat as he enters seventh grade. (Hesr ight his four-year-old mitt has seen better days.) Also, our daughter is starting soc-c er and needs cleats good ones arent cheap and footwear is one area wherew e refuse to scrimp. Many years ago my wife a nd I learned our lesson and started setting aside money each month for thei nevitable and unexpected expenses that crop up each f all. By trial and error and sound advice from fellow parents weve developed a back-to-school budgetingc hecklist: First,calculate how much y ou can afford to spend on school-related expenses without blowing your overallb udget or racking up debt. Scoring bargains wont help y our bottom line if you end up paying interest on unpaid balances. N ext,make a comprehensive list of anticipated expenses for each child and build in a cushion for unexpected costs. Try these strategies: Examine previous years bills and compare notes with other,more experienced par-e nts. Ask the school what supplies they expect you to buy.P ool resources with other families to take advantage of v olume discounts and sales. Spread clothing purchases throughout the year soy our kids wont outgrow everything at once; plus you c an take advantage of offseason sales. Review school dress codes so you dont waste money on inappropriatec lothing. Before buying new c lothing or accessories,look for gently useditems in the closets of your older k ids,friends and neighbors, at garage sales,thrift and consignment stores,and sites like Craigs List. Find out how much e xtracurricular activities (athletics,music,art,etc.) cost. Account for uniforms, membership dues,private lessons,field trips,snacks,e tc. Compare the cost,convenience and nutritional value of school lunches and snacks versus food you pre-p are yourself. Learn your schools policy on immunizations and seew hats covered by your insurance or which ones you can access free at healthf airs or community clinics. Factor in public transp ortation,school bus or carpool expenses. Although shopping o nline can save money,time and gas,don't forget shipp ing and return costs,which could undo any net savings. If your kids are old enough, put them in charge of online comparison shopping. Clip newspaper and online coupons. Many stores w ill match competitors prices even if their own items arent on sale. Plus, m any consolidation websites post downloadable coupons and sale codes for online retailers. Mobile shopping apps let i n-store smartphone and mobile browser users scan product barcodes and make on-the-spot price comparisons,read reviews,down-l oad coupons,buy products and more. Some parents wrestle over whether or not to take their kids on shopping trips. It hink its worth the effort so they can hear and absorb your decision-makingp rocess and understand whats available to spend. My kids are probably sick ofh earing me say,Im going to buy this brand of underw ear because its cheaper, which will give us more money to buy a better-quali-t y jacket. Bottom line:Back-tos chool shopping can be tedious,but if you plan carefully,you can save time, money and aggravation.

To be a bit more scientific about lichen,we are talking about as ymbiotic relationship between different organisms. Takefungus and algae;s eparately they function just fine. Put them together and you have a completely different organism. The fungus serves ast he mycobiont and the algae serves as the photosynthetic partner or photobiont. T hese two organisms join as one and create lichen,which occurs in some of the most extreme environ-m ents on the planet. Lichen has been found in the arctic,deserts, r ain forests,on rocks and even in toxic waste piles. It can grow on gravestones,wood,leaves,branch-e s,walls and soil. Lichen can live a long time,but it is also very sensit ive to environmental changes. Lichens are so complex in their partnerships,that some scientists define them as small ecosystems. The algal or cyanobacterial portiono f the partnership provides the green pigment chlorophyll,which a llows the suns energy to make their own food from water and carbon dioxide through the process ofp hotosynthesis. This component also provides vitamins. The fungus partner protects the others from drying out and provides shade from the sun by enclosing the photosyn-t hesizing partners within the body of the lichen. Because of this amazing symbiotic relationship,lichens colonize in many different ecosystems. Theyc an absorb up to 35 times their weight in water,enabling them to survive long periods of drought. They can absorb moisture from fog,dew and even the air if humid-i ty is high. They stay moist for a long time,enabling them to photosynthesize and continue to providef ood. Lichens are slow growers and can live for hundreds of years.S pread of lichen is generally caused by small pieces being separ ated and blown to another location. Since all the partners are in tact in that little piece,the frag-m ent begins to grow wherever it lands. Lichen can also reproduce b y spores from the fungus that meets with a compatible algal partner. Lichens do not have roots since they are independent and can gett he water they need from the moisture in the air and their vitamins a nd food from the algae partner. Because of this feature,lichens can grow where other plants cannot.D ifferent forms of lichen have been discovered in harsh environments s uch as deserts and the arctic regions. In these severe climates, lichen serves as a vital food sourcef or many species of wildlife. Many lichens grow as epiphytes, w hich are plants which grow above the ground surface,using other plants or objects for support; they are not parasitic. Other lichens can appear leaf-like,crusty,shrubby,s caly and even gelatinous. Lichens serve many important f unctions. These organisms are important in the development of soil. Lichen grows on rocks andw ill eventually infiltrate the rock. Eventually the rock is eroded and b egins to defragment by the pressure of the growth and the chemical makeup of the lichen. Thea cidic components of the lichen work to dissolve the rock and free u p minerals contained within, adding essential components to the soil. Another important function of lichens is their sensitivity to airp ollution. Their presence or absence in an area has been used to m ap amounts and types of pollutants. Lichens also produce chemicals as defenses against predators,p arasites and disease. Some of these chemicals are used as antiviral and anti-bacterial medications. Other uses for this unusual organism include scents for soapsa nd perfumes and dye for woolen cloth. Some varieties of lichen are used as model trees and other plants for miniature railroads and other hobbies. In some countries,l ichen is a food source for humans and even considered a delicacy by some. Lichen is one of the many fascinating organisms in nature. Therea re many different types,colors, shapes,textures and sizes of lichen, depending on geography. Here inH ighlands County one of the most common lichens is Reindeer moss. It is a short,stubby ground covert hat grows in pillow-like mats in sandy soil. It is spongy when moist a nd brittle when it is dry.This lichen is a nitrogen fixer,which helps form new soil,stabilize erod-i ng sand,and create habitat for other plants and animals.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunL AKELAND Here is a look at the September schedu le for the Polk Museum of Art.ExhibitionsInvisible Elephant T hrough Oct. 13 Dorothy Jenkins Gallery & Gallery II An ancient parable tells of six blind men who encounter a large elephant. Each man feels a different part of the elephant and defines what they are encountering based on their perspective:Onem an feels the elephants trunk and concludes its bamboo; another man touches the elephants ear and believes it to be a fan; at hird feels the elephants leg and decides its a pillar; and s o on. The underlying message of the parable is thatt he interpretation of information depends largely on your perspective and limited experiences. Invisible Elephantfeat ures new works by Theo Wujcik,a master printer and professor emeritus at the University of South Florida, and Kirk KeWang,a painter,s culptor,photographer and mixed media artist and professor of the visual arts at Eckerd College. For Invisible Elephant,Wujick and KeWang worked individually to produce new works based on their unique perspectives in relation to the others cultural background. David Maxim Through Dec. 1 Perkins Gallery The elements of power and drama in David Maxims works are undeniable tornadoes,masculine welders and warriors; even Maxims abstract pieces seem to evoke aggression. And yet, despite all of their strength, each subject reveals an equal measure of vulnerability. Maxim captures his warriors, not in the climax of battle, but in moments of weakness, facing grief,injury and death. Trapped in Maxims images,the characters remain suspended in their pain; the absence of relief stretches the tension further. Some characters are even literally suspended,hanging by wires like marionettes and helpless to fight the greater power. His tornadoes,too, although invincible themselves,are reminders of imminent devastation and helplessness. Miscellaneous:New Works by Trent Manning Sept. 8-Nov. 11 Murray & Ledger Galleries The sculptures of Winter Havens Trent Manning cleverly balance the often mism atching qualities of childlike whimsy and dark humor. A s if on a sort of artistic seesaw,Manning pairs lighthearted elements such asa lphabet blocks,rocking horses,and wagons with grim acing characters,boasting large bald heads,empty eyes,and prominent beakliken oses. The artists cynical wit and playfulness shine t hrough his pieces. Assembling his sculptures f rom discarded metal,old tools,and wire,he transforms junk into eclectic masterpieces.Student exhibitionsArtwork by Summer Art C amp Students Sept. 8 Oct. 7 G eorge W.Jenkins Student Gallery E xhibition reception: Saturday,Sept. 8,11 a.m. More than 300 children ages 5-13 discovered their inner artists at Summer ArtC amp 2012,and we share some of their work in this exhibition.

For example,I faced a dilemma in trusting thej udgment of my sons kindergarten teacher when she said,t worry.H ll do fine. As a single Mom,I had j ust begun to work a parttime job; one that would have me home for my son int he afternoons when school was out. It was a good job t hat I not only liked; but,in which I felt competent. At that time in the late 70s,school schedules were different than today. T here were two kindergarten classes taught morni ng and afternoon by two teachers. My son was in the morning class. Ever mind-f ul of being a single parent, I diligently nurtured him a nd taught him Christian values. Then Id check in with his teacher to see if he w as showing healthy emotional and social behavior. I had come to love and respect her. During the half-way mark o f the school year,the morning and afternoon classes switched times and teachers. My son would now attend school in thea fternoon. When I told his teacher t hat I would see if I could change my work hours toc oincide with school,her advice surprised me. t change y our hours. Just leave him in the morning class. But he wont know the otherc hildren,I argued. With so much upheaval in his young life,I didnt want to throwa nother curve ball his way. Thats when she advised h d do fine. Would he act out the opposite of what we saw inh im and betray our confidence; or,would he portray t hose inner qualities we both believed were therevalues and beliefse ven at this young age? And,was my faith in his t eachers trustworthiness, wisdom and heart of love well placed? After the first week we met again. Hes doing great!You should see him helping the o ther children adjust. He takes the lead and shows them where things are orh elps them with projects. My heart leaped for joy a s I hugged this precious lady whose teaching style and heart for her students I w ould emulate when teaching Sunday school or Vacation Bible School. As it reads in Galations 5:22,NKJV,But the fruito f the Spirit is love,joy, peace,longsuffering,kindness,goodness,faithfulness, gentleness,self-control. The fruit of the Spirit was p ortrayed in her life and in my young sons life. Selah J an Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.

The problem is,his parents are hoarders. Their house is a disaster. Its falling apart from the inside out. They have piles of junk in the house and yard,and six dogs that live in the house with them. My daughter has just been diagnosed with a severe allergy to mold. I dont like her to go to their house,but they adore her and want to spend time with her. I dont know what to do. I have tried talking to my boyfriend about it,but he's in complete denial about his parentssituation and says Im overreacting.I dont want to hurt their feelings, and I don't want to keep my daughter from her grandparents. Help,please! At a Loss in Texas Dear At a Loss: The loving grandparents can spend time with the child at your home rather than theirs. Schedule an appointment with your daughters pediatrician or allergy specialist for you and your boyfriend. Because your daughter has severe allergies,he needs to understand what that means and how serious her allergic reactions could become. If your daughter is allergic to mold,she also may be severely allergic to other things like animal dander and dust. Dear Abby: My daughter was recently married in our hometown. Although she was born and raised here, shes now living in another state,so it was a destination wedding for many of the invitees. It wasnt a large affair only 60 people attended. I received an email today from an old friend who was surprised to hear about the wedding and wanted to know why she wasnt invited. Im at a loss as to how to respond. I have known her a long time and now I feel guilty for not having invited her, but we had decided early on that only family and a few close friends would be invited. Is there a polite way to respond to her? I feel it was rude of her to even ask. Mother of the Bride Dear Mother of the Bride:For the woman to ask why she wasnt on the guest list was,indeed,rude. A polite response would be to tell her the wedding was very small family and only a few friends were invited but youll be sure to let her know when the grandchildren start arriving. Dear Abby: Years ago, my sister developed a freckle-sized spot on her arm that was diagnosed as skin cancer. She was treated,andn othing more came of it. Recently,she has been telling people shes a cancer survivorand participating in survivor walks. I applaud her willingness to help and be involved,but it seems shes comparing herself to people who have undergone breast cancer, chemo,major life-altering conditions,loss of family members and worse. Are my family and I being overly critical? Or is there some way we can make her realize that what she has gone through is not nearly as devastating as the experiences of those who have truly survived this ordeal? Brother Dave in Pennsylvania Dear Brother Dave: Yes, you are being overly critical. That cancerous frecklemight have been melanoma,which is a very serious cancer. Your sister is lucky it wasnt life-threatening. If she wants to participate in cancer fundraisers,she has earned the right to be there.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Sunday, August 19, 2012 BYJOSHUAAXELRODMcClatchy-Tribuneo youre a rising college freshman. Youve got four (possibly more) years of experiences ahead of you that will shape who you are socially and professionally. How can you get ahead in both those areas without too much stress? Through social media of course! Between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and other prominent networking sites, social media can be a wonderful tool for a freshman looking to establish him or herself in a college bubble. The strength of social media is in its ability to network and collaborate, said Sabrina Kramer, assistant director at the University of Marylands Center for Teaching Excellence. Networking for jobs and other opportunities has always been important just now you can reach more people much more easily Kramer suggested that students start building an online professional portfolio early. Employers want to see evidence of a persons ability to think, critically analyze and write effectively, she said. Building a portfolio, updating it and curating it with good examples of your work also shows good organizational skills and that you care about your work. Iowa State University senior Thomas Frank is the founder of College Info Geek, a resource for making college a remarkable experience. Social media played a huge part in his college life. Social media was the catalyst for my first internship, Frank said. Had I not been using Twitter as a freshman and following my schools new account, I would have never found out about the leadership conference Principal was running. Through that I gained dozens of contacts, a Fortune 500 internship and eventually a $5,000 scholarship. As important as the professional advantages here are, dont forget the social aspect of social media. The advantages of social media came about before freshman year even started, said Madeline Monaco, a sophomore at Elon University, in Elon, N.C. I found my roommate on Facebook, where we talked and decided to room with each other. By looking at pages she had liked and other things in her About Mesection, I was able to connect with a really great girl and develop a really great relationship with her Monaco also said that Facebook and Twitter are slowly becoming her primary news outlets. I found out about Whitney Houstons death from a friends post on anothers wall, she said. S ocial media also has entered the classroom. Sites like StudyBlue allow students to share study material on just about every subject imaginable in one easily accessible place. Some professors also incorporate social media into their lesson plans. In one class, students were able to talk with the author of the book that they were reading via a blog, Kramer said. In a talk I gave, we were able to interact via Twitter with the speaker in a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) talk that I was highlighting in my talk. Students can also create wikis or Google Docs to help each other study, review and edit papers, or even ask a professor questions the night before a test. If youre a freshmen not making the most out of social media, youre probably going to fall behind. I think that being able to have updates from your friends and family on a constant basis is integral to what most people expect at this point, Kramer said. I think it allows for a richer experience and the ability to connect outside of campus. The art of networking is still as or more important in the era of social media as compared to before. Try to find University of Colorado Boulder graduate Erin Moriarty on Facebook. No luck? Thats exactly what Moriarty is hoping will happen. Once I started applying for jobs, (there was going through my entire Facebook profile and making sure I never said a cross thing or posted something potentially offensive, she said. I went so far as to change my name to Yossarian Caulfield (a combination of the main characters from Catch 22 and Catcher in the R She now goes by Erin Broiarty, a name coined by friends that only they would know to search for on Facebook. Its a strategy that is being used more and more by college students to hide potentially embarrassing parts of their social media lives from employers. College students are slowly beginning to learn that posts on Facebook, Twitter, personal blogs and other social networking sites can be used against them in their professional lives. Now, it's all too easy to reveal your thoughts and feelings to the entire Internet at the click of a button. College students realize that the photo of them holding a red plastic cup and looking sloppy might be the difference between getting a job or internship and rejection. For me, social media is both a personal and professional tool, said Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne junior Laura Rosenbaum. If it sounds like something I wouldnt want my parents to know about or something Id get in trouble for from my (employert post it. Peter VanRysdam, chief marketing officer for 352 Media Group, which specializes in web development and digital marketing, said that when his employees do something questionable over social media, his company handles it on a case-by-case basis. e dont have any specific rules in place, but we do educate employees about using common sense when making posts, he said. We just ask they consider the ramifications, and as a result, weve never had a big issue. VanRysdam mentioned an employee who, after she was fired, posted unflattering comments about 352. Though she was out of the companys control at that point, they still had leverage over her severance package and used that to get her to take down the posts. Moral of that story: employers can and will see everything you post online. I dont think students fully grasp the impact of what they post, said VanRysdam said. Actually, I think they just dont grasp how to use Facebooks security settings. It amazes me what some people keep public, especially as they get closer to graduation. Its a buyers market when it comes to hiring, so everything is fair game! If youre a college student worried about your personal life ruining your professional one, either think before you post or make sure youre keeping everything you post as private as possible. Quick warning though: if youre using Moriartys strategy, make sure people know your real name. My name has changed so many times and for so long that at my internship last summer, my first paycheck was made out to Erin Broiarty, she said. Joshua Axelrod When people say that you can get in trouble on Facebook and Twitter, they arent just blowing smoke. There are plenty of cases of intelligent, talented people destroyi ng their careers because of something they posted on a social media website. Well, i ntelligence is clearly relative here. It should be a given at this point that anyone can see what you post online. Let the mistakes of a few misguided social media users serve as a lesson. for future generations of F acebookers and Tweeters: Buck BurnetteOne surefire way to get yourself fired is to be blatantly racist, homophobic or just plain h ateful online. The poster boy for that scenario is Buck Burnette, a former University of Texas backup center. Soon after Barack Obamas election, Burnette showed the world his true colors via Facebook: all the hunters gather up, we have a #$%&er in the whitehouse. Once Longhorns Coach M ack Brown saw this, he kicked him off th e team faster than Burnette probably figured out that White House is two words. A nthony Weiner Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were in comedy heaven for a week when this story leaked. When former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner attempted to send a picture of his namesake to a 21-year-old female college student in Seattle via a private T witter message, he a ccidentally revealed his manhood to the entire Twitterverse. It didnt take long for him t o resign. Thanks to his inept Tweeting, the w orld now has Weinergate to remind us why sexting is never a good idea. Dharun RaviThis is bullying at its most despicable and deadly. Former Rutgers University student D harun Ravi (notice how everyone here is a former something) set up a webcam to spy on his roommate Tyler Clementi. When h e caught Clementi kissing another man, Ravi took to Twitter and told his followers to watch for a second w ebcam rendezvous. The next day, Clementi jumped off the George Washington Bridge to his death. Ravi was eventually convicted on 15 counts of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation, tampering with evidence, witn ess tampering and hindering apprehensio n o r prosecution, and sentenced to 30 days in jail and a $10,000 fine for invasion of privacy and bias intimidation, among other charges. Ashley PayneFile this one under theres no such thing as online privacy. Ashley Paynes crime was going on vacation in Europe and posting a few pictures of herself at beer gardens and cafes. She was over 21 and only 10 of her 700 photos had alcohol in them, so no big deal, right? The problem was that Payne was a teacher in Barrow County, Ga. Despite having Facebooks highest level o f privacy settings, one of her students saw the pictures and the district superintendent received an angry anonymous email from a concerned parent. Payne was forced to resign.Gilbert GottfriedHollywood and Twitter go together like Ashton Kutcher and misreporting Joe Paternos death. Gilbert Gottfried thought it would be funny to Tweet some jokes about the Japanese tsunami, like: Japan is really advanced. They dont go to the beach. The beach comes to them. Gottfrieds antics cost him his job as the voice of the Aflac Duck. The lesson here: if theres the potential to offend a large group of peo ple, keep your big bill shut. Kevin ColvinThis young man deserves the award for orst Liar Ever. Kevin Colvin was an intern at Anglo Irish Banks North American branch. He told his manager that he would be missing work for a family emergency The next morning, pictures of him in a fairy costume (complete with a wand Halloween party he skipped work to attend surfaced on Facebook. His boss found the photo and sent it everyone in the office. Social Media 101: if youre going to lie, cover your tracks. And, if youre a man, dont get caught in a dress.
