The show is the musical comedy The 25th annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,winner of two TonyAwards in 2005 There is no real plot or story arc. Instead,the audience is treated to a highpressure spelling bee contest with 12-year-old middle schoolers as the participants. The fun comes as a result of the childrens quirky personalities and their nerdy focus on spelling and the need to win. The fact that the adolescents are played (with one exception) by adults adds to the satire. There is William Barfee, played by Steve McDaniel, who is a big slob,has allergies and an arrogant attitude.

For example,board member Donna Howerton suggested cutting back on per diem travel expenses, including those for board members when they attend conferences or go to Tallahassee. In an effort to track expenses, board chairman Ned Hancock suggested the district provide financial information in context. That is,he wants the board to see more than a snapshot of one years budget,but trends over time. You can have a good year in one or two areas,he School board still looking for savings See SCHOOL,page 4A See SHOOTING,page 5A I was born on an Aug. 25. This is only important because my birthday led to a brush with Hurricane Andrew. Hard as it is to believe,that monumental,trickster of a storm hit Florida 20 years ago,on Aug. 24, 1992. For those of us who experienced it,Andrew remains a powerful memory,as if it happened yesterday. Even two decades after Andrew,I remember the electrical power going out and the shrill sound the wind made as it whistled through a gap between the ceiling and the outside wall,created by forces of monumental strength as they sucked on the pre-fab roof. We could see the sky between the wall and the ceiling every time the roof moved and felt the rain driven in by the wind. Fortunately we were in Fort Lauderdale and in Andres outer bands. We didnt start our hurricane adventure in Fort Lauderdale,however. My family and I had made plans to stay down in Florida City at Grandma Newtons Bed and Breakfast to celebrate my birthday.

T wenty years ago today,Hurricane Andrew came ashore in South Florida. I t was the third category five storm to be recorded hitting the continental United States. The small and fast-moving storm made landfall early in the morning ofA ug. 24,1992. It devastated the Homestead region of Dade County and p arts of South Miami. Andrew destroyed 80 percent of the Homestead and Florida City area. More than 82,000 businesses were destroyed, and 250,000 people were left homeless. The environment was hit hard too 3 3 percent of the reefs in Biscayne N ational Park were damaged or destroyed,as were 90 percent of the Dade native pinelands. Damages came to approximately $30 billion (equivalent to $40 billion in 2012). Thirty years of debris was created in less than a day. Living through it was bad; living after it was worse See ANDREW,page 4A

C M Y K B y SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Pancakes and proud parents filled the Woodlawn Elementary School cafeteria Thursdaym orning during a celebration of excellence. T he Honors Scholars Breakfast brought together 71 students for breakfastw ith their friends and family in honor of their outstanding a ccomplishments last school year. Principal Kaye Bowers a nd assistant principal Melissa Blackman commended students on scoring a4 and above on the FCATlast school year. We get the scores back so late in the year we dont have time to celebrate or congratulate you, so we are doing it today, said Bowers. B owers said that more than 100 students scored a 4 o r above on the FCATin the reading, math or science int hird and fourth grades. Fourth grade advanced academics teacher Andria McHargue visited with students commending them on aj ob well done. McHargue knows the difficulty of facing the FCAT exam, but works hard to prepare her students for the tests o that they may not only succeed but excel. Reading comprehension is definitely a big part of the test for sure. Whether its retention or summarizing, its a big part of it, McHargue said. Each student faces the same test, but not in the same way. Every student is different going into the FCAT. It just d epends on their mindsets, McHargue said. A ccording to Bowers, WES fourth graders had a 56 percent proficiency in reading portion of the FCAT.The district proficiency is alsoc lose to 56 percent for fourth grade reading. A55 percent proficiency was earned by fourth grade math portion of the FCATat Woodlawn and a5 3 percent for science. Among the many top scoring students at WES, a handful of students performed exceptionally well in areas of the exam. Fourth graders Rilan Smith and Michael Williams made a perfect score on the math portion of the FCAT. James Branca made a perfects core on the reading portion last year. F ifth graders Andrew Livingston and RobertG otkeiwicz scored perfectly on reading and math, respectively. The five students shared sound advice to fellow class-m ates on how to make perfect scores on the exam this year. Study hard, said Branca. t get nervous; study w hat they tell you to, said Smith. t get off track and do your best, Williams said. By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Council members discussed a possible new development that would be annexed into the city limits during Tuesdays regular council meeting. Carl Cool, of Cool and Cobb Engineering, addressed the council as a representative for the proposed Dr. Hunter Newsom development, a well-known eye care center in Central Florida, which is planning to put down roots in Highlands County. An annexation of the construction site was requested by Cool as well as a Planned Development zoning. The PD zoning would provide more flexibility when it comes to signs placed on the property at 4211 U.S. 27. Council members were concerned with the zoning of the property initially. City Attorney Bob Swaine clarified the difference between the zoning classifications. I think PD is what gives you all additional control and better sets up the argument for the gray area that we find ourselves in with the sign. Its a bit more of a give and take ... remember in PD you are designed exactly how its going to be laid out, Swaine said. The medical office and surgery center will be modeled after the Newsom Center in Tampa. The building will likely be a threeor four-story building between 20,000 and 40,000 square feet. Cool revealed that a total of 1,000 square feet of signage is being requested for the development. The Sebring center is in addition to the Tampa center. What is the maximum feet of signage allowed? council member Andrew Fells asked. Swaine confirmed that the maximum feet of signage fora development is only 600 feet. Fells was not fully on board with the idea of a development having such a large amount of signage. One of the proposed signs would be 20-by-20 feet. The billboard at the property is leased to the property owner currently; the proposal calls for a swapping of billboards. I have some reservations about the sign. This council has sat here and fought some other sign issues in the past year. This is my only concern on it, Fells said. John Clark wants to see the development which would employ approximately 80 people, according to Cool come into the city but was uncomfortable with the Page 2ANews-SunFriday, August 24, 2012www.newssun.com pub block; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 9 9 Aug. 22 142930414349x:5Next jackpot $4 millionAug. 18 42639424547x:5 Aug. 15 3710192427x:2 Aug. 22 811162034 Aug. 21 217202530 Aug. 20 1112131621 Aug. 19 914162135 Aug. 22 (n 8623 Aug. 22 (d 8776 Aug. 21 (n 9151 Aug. 21 (d 5321 Aug. 22(n 789 Aug. 22 (d 988 Aug. 21(n 954 Aug. 21 (d 159 Aug. 21 102238415 Aug. 17 35141611 Aug. 14 1423263614 Aug. 10 91729418 Aug. 22 2229314755 PB: 19Next jackpot $60 millionAug. 18 1426415559 PB: 1 Aug. 15 627465156 PB: 21 Note: Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day: (d daytime drawing, (n nighttime drawing.

Dont know if these watermelons are sold locally,but if anyone should see one from Graham Farms,Try it youll like it. Stan Lisiecki Houghton Lake,Mich.Are gypsies Israels lost tribes?Editor: Please straighten me out: When I was a kid,I was taught that the gypsies were the lost tribes of Israel. What about that? Don H. Streeter SebringLoss of police dept. will be feltEditor: It saddens me,and Im hearing others who are disheartened,by what we are seeing at our Community Center. Our mayor made it clear she would tolerate no nonsense.We,the people, saw an undermining overthrow,sabotage and a damage attack on our Avon Park Police Department,who took an oath. Im knowing of their oaths. My grandfather was a respected police officer with many years of service. Never d id we,the people who call Avon Park our precious city, expect to see our police (go who protect us and were trying to help our children grow up and be respectful of others. Your children are Avon Park children. Our police department cares for all and then to hear Brenda Gray and Councilor Parke Sutherland had urged to change and the $2 million the city would save. How about our children and our safety? ve been overwhelmed a little after 4 a.m.,out of sound sleep,hearing many, many gun shots by my home that were too close,hit cars and into the home next door. I called the Avon Park police; they care about our safety and got rid of the scammers that were here in Avon Park too. Our city manager,Julian DeLeon,doesnt respect them,nor others on council that wouldnt even let John King speak at our last meeting. (Mr. King was another officer who,being under oath,is a part of every police officers life; they in Avon Park to all of us want to walk out our door to a safe Avon Park. We had it with our police department). Julian DeLeon let us see his temper and anger at council with its vote,not ours,the people of Avon Parks vote. It was a disgrace that they wouldnt let John King say anything at the last meeting. A take over and Avon Park will see that come. Mr. DeLeon,five months ago,wanted us to consider park land. He said more than $300,000 price tag,not in an a rea many would use,not safe for children and he told us five years of no interest, just a very big debt for us in Avon Park. To think,a city manager would want us in debt for five years to a park that we would have to invest even more money into. And Mr. DeLeon cant see our safety and the need of our police department in our city must come first. ... How about our safety? We dont need a city manager whos thinking hatefully towards our police department. ... Our police department,all 22,were under oath. Our doctors whom I worked with take an oath. And our President of America took an oath. Yes,we are of the people,by the people and for the people,one nation under God with liberty and justice for all. Mr. DeLeon,that does include 22 officers who you dont respect. What does honesty mean to you,Mr. DeLeon? Norma Jean Viney Avon ParkNeed for informed hospice choicesEditor: Cornerstone Hospice & Palliative Care believes citizens in Polk,Highlands and Hardee counties have the right to education and choices regarding their hospice providers. When an existing hospice closes,you have a right to choose from all area hospice providers. Recently Hope Hospice announced its decision to close its hospice program in Polk,Highlands and Hardee (Hope HealthCare to halt h ospice care in Highlands published Friday,Aug. 10). During this time of change, Cornerstone is advocating for Hopes patients and their families all of whom have a choice. There are three hospices which serve the tricounty area:Good Shepherd Hospice,Compassionate Care Hospice,and Cornerstone Hospice. While the announcement stated that Good Shepherd Hospice was prepared to admit and continue serving Hope patients,Cornerstone Hospice believes that patients facing end-of-life care needs deserve to be well informed about all their choices for hospice care. Each patients right to choose is protected by state and federal law,and patients may choose to receive services from any hospice willing to serve them. Cornerstone Hospice cares about our neighbors and about our mission to provide quality,compassionate care for people facing end of life. Cornerstones care is focused upon easing patient suffering,making patients comfortable,and helping patients and their families feel peaceful during the most difficult time in their lives. Cornerstone Hospice is a non-profit organization with roots in this community since 2003 and we are here to stay. If you would like more information,please call 382-4563. Deborah Harley,MSW Executive Director Cornerstone Hospice & Palliative Care Sebring Drivers of vehicles are responsible for adapting to roadway conditions,including weather,in accordancew ith Florida Statutes,said a report the FHP released recently. T he FHPs decision to reopen the stretch of highway which had been closed fort hree hours in the early morning of Jan. 29 because of b linding smoke and fog from a nearby brushfire was cited as a judgment callbyt he on-scene commander. The collisions involving tractor-trailers,trucks and cars on both sides of the interstate began 35 min-u tes after that call. The FHPs denials are,in a sense,understandable. Thes tate is facing lawsuits involving at least 18 victims of the collisions. Any claimo f responsibility might be deemed incriminating. T he greater concern is that FHP might really believe that it did nothing wrong on Jan.2 9 and has nothing significant to learn from that tragedy. That attitude would contrad ict mounting evidence much of it compiled by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Most troubling of all is the F DLEs finding that the Highway Patrol failed to fully adopt recommendations made after similar multivehicle pileups on Jan. 9,2 008,amid smoke and fog on Interstate 4 in Polk County, left five people dead and 37i njured. ... At some point,either the governor or the Legislaturen eeds to make sure that the FHP is putting the publics i nterests before its own. An editorial from the Gainesville Sun. Whose interests come first? The Florida Highway Patrol has blamed drivers,and largely denied its own responsibility,for the multiple collisions on fog-and-smoke-shrouded I-75 that killed 11 people and injured dozens more.

Opinions expressed in l etters or columns are solely the opinion of that author and not necessarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the NewsS un One of the annoying things about beingf riends with political journalists is hearing them whine that we campaign folkd ont talk about issues. Its as if they believe in a Neverland where issues are debated in Roman togasa round a table on a Sunday morning talk s how in sober,respectful tones. The problem with this f antasy is that were not Canadians. Wre electing p eople to represent us. Have you paid attention to yourself recently,America? We stopped playing nicely with others in kindergarten.A good day for us is when we complete a sentence t hat only implies an obscenity for emphasis. Consequently,American c ampaigns are rhetorical brawls. Youd think the p ress would be entertained, but no. They fret our politics havent washed theirh ands and put on a coat and tie before reaching our tender ears. But with all t he fighting over tax policy, Medicare,Ayn Rand and K eynesian economics,the press would do well to notice this place reeks of issues. Wre just not being nice. M aybe the press isnt asking the right questions. Rather than obsess over whether Rep. Todd Akin (R-17th Century ting his Senate race,how about asking him whichr apes arent legitimate. Is that when her words,eyes, a nd body language says no, but her skirt says yes? Should there be an exception to federally funded abortions for when aw oman was raped but she was wearing peep-toed stilettos? Of course,the strangest thing about Akins remarkw as his medical opinion that a woman being raped secretes magical goalie hormones that prevent insemination. A Republican congressional colleague leapt to his defense on Tuesday by saying no one has even told him about any incest victim getting pregnant,so Akin must be right. Serious question: Can Congress pass high school health class? Akins "gaffe" Washington-speak for accidentally saying what you really believedid Republicans a favor by getting Paul Ryan and his plan to privatize Medicare out of the spotlight. Essentially,"Ryancare" could give senior citizens a coupon that would get them basic health care or go towards a more expensive insurance policy. Butand this is a serious question,tooif Ryans plan would guarantee a basich ealth care plan, then how would we save money? The press could keep asking about PaulR yans workout tips and how he helps Mitt Romney in Wisconsin,but d like to know whether insurancec ompanies would get to decide what constit utes a basic health care policy when I get old. Thats like letting WallS treet decide what constitutes acceptable risk with t axpayer-backed securities. We could have a serious discussion about gun violence. I can understand not wanting to "politicize" am assacre before weve buried the bodies,but w hats the right time to talk about a response when the next shooting happensb efore were done grieving for the last one? If we do n othing in response to crazy people buying guns legally and shooting peoplei llegally,have we decided that our solution is to cross our fingers and hope really, r eally hard that it never happens again? Because I ve tried that. Meanwhile,both Romney and his boy wonder oppose the coming cuts in defense spendingb ecause people would lose their jobs. Why does federal spending that makes a bomb create jobs but federal funding to keep teachers and firefighters at their posts hurt our recovery? If,a s it appears,the Republican ticket has close t Keynesian tendencies (not that theres anything wrong with that),will someone explain to me why were supposed tot hink that the federal deficit is hurting private sector growth? In case I cant read a bar graph,it looks to me like privates ector jobs keeps going up, but public sector jobs those aforementioned teachers and firefighters keeps going down. Pity the poor press. There paid to follow the elephants and donkeys but fail to notice that there at the circus. Were having a lot of fun fighting over the issues. We just disagree in a messy,disagreeable way.

The man had a sister working as a nurse at a hospital on Miami Beach. As we sat with him watching television he made a frantic phone call to his sister,making plans to evacuate to her hospital. Feeling immensely superior,because we were without fear,we made fun of him after he left the room. Imagine leaving a sturdy, inland house built in 1920, we said,and going to the beach for a hurricane that was coming out of the sea. We were sure we were safe,and thought him a wuss. We werent going to go home,having more of a party attitude than was good for us. My niece was still a teenager,however,and back home by herself in Fort Lauderdale. Her father insisted on going home. So we packed up after only o ne night and left early Sunday the 23rd. O ne of the things I remember vividly on the drive back was the sound of hammers and saws as people hurriedly went about boarding up a lthough many relied solely on putting masking tape on their windows. Back in Fort Lauderdale my mother,sister and I ended u p staying at a friends house because it was supposed to be safer than my mothers cottage,and there was no room for everyone at my apartment. We didnt know about that flimsy,pre-fab addition. After the storm roared through,the neighborhood was trapped. Every banyan tree in the area every single one had blown over in the storm. Phone lines were down and communication was impossible. A day or two later,when we had dug out,two friends and I loaded up the car with bottled water and headed south. We were not so much altruistic as we were curious and,having met Grandma Newton and heard the south had been badly hit,we wanted to find out how she was. It was a terrible trip. Im embarrassed to say it never occurred to me I might be an unwelcome intrusion, especially after all our water was gone and we kept on rubbernecking. Everywhere we went it looked the same roofs gone,walls gone,windows gone,television sets running on car batteries,reclinersp ulled into front yards,their occupants looking at passersb y in contempt. Messages were spray painted on the sides of homes things like The Smiths are fine,pleas for insurancec ompanies to call,or sometimes just the street address. The devastation got worse the further we went,and the gawking traffic increased. W e got to Florida City and went to look for Grandma Newton. It was difficult because Florida City was pretty much missing. We finally found where the bed and bedfast had been. All that was left was a bare, empty lot. There was no twostory house,no foundation, no antiques,no fruit trees or hibiscus flowers nothing but in the far corner of the property a concrete slab where a guest house had been. The remains of a house across the street had a spray painted sign,Grandma Newton is OK,but there was no one to talk to. The immensity of our ignorance and arrogance in the face of natural forces finally sank in how close we had come to having a house come apart around us. The gapping roof in Lauderdale suddenly seemed small potatoes,certainly nota story of survival. As for the tourist who ran to Miami Beach he not only stayed safe and dry,the hospital had electricity throughout the storm. The lesson I learned from this was simple,but brutal. One persons exciting adventure is often at the expense of another persons misery and despair. And the last thing you want to do as a tourist is point. C hristopher Tuffley is a NewsSun staff writer.

Photos taken of the damage were overwhelming scenes of entiren eighborhoods splintered beyond recognition; all road signs and traffic lights swept away by the wind.It headed right at usMychelle Tomek was 14 at the time. She was stayingw ith family in Highlands County,as she did every summer. T omek said her story is ironic. At first it looked like the storm was headed rightf or Central Florida,so my parents came to take me out o f its path to the safety of South Florida and home,she said. Then the storm changed direction. It headed right at u s. We took off the bedroom doors,boarded the windows and gathered together. A two-story house behind them was blown apart by thew ind. Major debris from the demolished house took out h alf of Mychelles home, leaving the family was exposed to the driving raina nd wind. Creating a tent out of mattresses,the family hudd led in the foyer. Afterwards,the streets were so blocked by fallen t rees,house parts and other debris that the family was trapped for three weeks. T omek returned to Sebring for the six months it took to rebuild her familys home. In 1997,tired of trying to get back to normal,the fami-l y relocated to Sebring permanently.Ive found your roofShane Morris lived in the Kendall and Homestead area at the time. He,his wife and s ix-month-old son joined e xtended family,including t wo more young children,to ride out the storm. He was the only one with hurricane experience. Ina dvance he filled his cars gas tank,made sure its battery w as charged and bought provisions. At first everyone sat around watching T.V.,but the w eather around them wasnt bad,Morris said,so the wivesa nd the children went to bed. T he back of the house faced east with a wall of slid-i ng glass doors. Morris said he fell asleep on the couch in front of the windows,watching hurricane coverage. ll never forget it, Morris said. It was 2:54 a.m. when I woke up and smelled salt in the air. T hats when he noticed the glass doors were bowed inward and ocean salt wasb lowing in. Thankfully,he added,the windows never gave in. Bryan Norcross (a local weather man) was on T.V. h olding a flashlight in his hand,Morris said. Its coming,Norcross was say-i ng,s already on shore. If you have things that arent tied down ...and the televi-s ion shut down in mid-sentence. The house was creaking and stuff was hitting the outs ide. Then the wind really started blowing,howling in the roof attic. L ooking up,Morris could see the popcorn ceiling movi ng up and down. By now everybody was awake,the three childrent ucked into the bathtub. Morris and his brother-inlaw ran to the attic door,tryi ng to open it with no success because the pressure was so great. Then suddenly,Morriss aid,The door was gone,it flew right by me and I was s tanding with two or three inches of insulation round my feet. Removing the door helped ease the pressure on the roof. T he house settled down. After that everything was all right,Morris said. A fterwards,all he could see were piles of roof barrel tiles everywhere,downedt rees,cars smashed and housing debris. Ocean salt had b een blown so hard it coated the house with white crystals. It was quite a clean-up, Morris said. We were without electricity for threem onths and a month and a half without water.At one p oint he was driving to West Palm Beach to get ice. He added that the mosquitoesw ere awful. The family developed a regular routine,cooking m eals on the grill. To have light at night Morris ran 30 feet of wire from his car bat-t ery to a drop-light he hung in the back porch. P eriodically he started the engine and re-charged the battery. It didnt take long,Morris said,for his next door neighb or to come running over, livid with rage,How do you have electricity?the man yelled. When Morris showed him what he had done,hea pologized and began hanging out with the family. Several other things stand out in Morrismemory a complete freighter high andd ry in the middle of U.S. 1 and a B-17 missing from Tamiami Airport. The crew looking for the plane followed skid marks and tiret racks to find it,only the last few yards there were no signs on the ground it actually took to the air before landingi n muck. Morrisbrother-in-law had l ost his roof in the storm. Everything he owned was s ucked out and gone. Then his brother-in-law got a call from a friend. Ive foundy our roof,the friend said. It was two miles away,in one c omplete piece,including shingles. Some clothes and h is stereo were with it. While Morris relocated to Highlands County in 1997,h e said it had nothing to do with the storm.Primitive livingG us Garcia,a lieutenant with the Highlands County Sheriffs Office,was an offi-c er with the North Miami Police Department at the t ime. He was sent to Homestead immediately after the storm t o help. What he remembers most is the devastation when he arrived. Even the H omestead Police D epartment needed help to get up and running. Roofs and parts of houses lay everywhere. So were the nails that had held all those roofs and parts together. Roads were covered with them. The police departmen t q uickly ran out of tires. One of the first things Homestead sent for was replacements. Garcia accompanied convoys bringing food and supplies down from Miami. He also worked in C ountry Walk,one of the worst hit developments whe re poorly constructed houses blew apart. It was really,really d epressing,Garcia said. Everything was just gone. A ll that was left was a big pile of debris. Many people lived outs ide. It was too hot to sleep indoors. Garcia said. It w as back to primitive living. H e added that his experience taught him it is important to prepare emotionally before a hurricane hits no t so much for the force of the s torm,but for life afterwards. I t is possible to go weeks, e ven months,without power or water,Garcia said. ou need to be mentally r eady,he said.

Member Andy Tuck asked w hy the transportation department wanted to add a p osition of clerk to coordin ate transportation for field t rips. Transportation has the b iggest decrease in spending, a llotted $143,000 less than 2 011-12. Now, Tuck said, the b oard is being asked to add a c lerks wages and benefits, a bout $34,000, back into the b udget. C arlene Varnes, acting d irector of transportation, said the position is necessary. F ield trips require extensive preparation and paperwork f or several reasons, Varnes said, including reserving b uses, selecting drivers in a c ertain rotation, keeping and c hecking mileage records, p reparing maps to and from t he destinations, and doing t he billing. There are so many details, and such an extended time-l ine, it is more efficient to have one individual oversee the process, Varnes said. Itp revents mistakes. Another issue is the volu me of travel. It is only the first week of school and already there are 80 busr equests, said Varnes. Because 70 to 80 percent o f field trips involve athletics, and games are scheduled well in advance, the board wanted to know if more preparation could be done int he summer when the schedules are set for the coming y ear. Varnes replied that the summer is also busy. We did2 00 field trips over the summer, she said. B oard member Bill Brantley did not object to the position. Hancock, on theo ther hand, was cautious. How do you change the system, he asked, adding, once you put a body in a seat its hard to remove. B oard member Ronnie Jackson said that athletic directors could maybe do a little more.

A man,identified as Victim 2 in the report, told the people in the car it was time to go. Both persons became angry,yelling obscenities at Victim 2. Victim 2 saw the passenger reach under the seat and pull out what appeared to be a chrome colored semi automatic pistol as this black male made threats to Victim 2,the report said. The vehicle then drove around the east side of the building and the security guards began walking back to the covered porch area of the bar. Then,investigators say, Jackson ran around the corner of the building holding the gun and yelled he was going to kill him. Jackson pointed the gun and pulled the trigger,the report said,but the gun didnt fire. Another person pulled Victim 2 to the ground. He told investigators that he then heard two gunshots and thes ound of a projectile passing close to him. After a third shot was fired,Jackson reportedly fled back around the corner. That was when Victim 1 said he was shot and needed medical attention. The report said he had wounds in his upper left and right legs. He was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He told deputies that he saw Jackson shoot twice into the covered porch area where Victim 2 was,then turn, point the gun in his direction and fire,hitting him in the legs. Victim 2 was able to positively identify Jackson as the shooter,the report said,and several other people also identified Jackson as the shooter. Jackson had been inside Sierras,HCSO Public Information Officer Nell Hays said,but it wasnt clear if hed been drinking. Since Sierras serves food,it is legal for a teenager to be inside,Hays said,as long as they dont sit at the actual bar and dont drink alcohol.

C M Y K OK you stat geeks, you baseball aficionados, youk now it alls explain to me this. How does a players batting average get highert han his on base percentage? I had never thought about it before, myself, a ssuming the average was always lower than the O BP, by nature of what the stats mean. Batting average figures the hits accumulated in the at bats, which will give a specific number, rendering a specific bit of info, whereas the OBP takes into account reaching base in any way, shape or form in those at bats. If a player hits a grounder to short that gets booted, and he reaches base on the error, it boosts his OBP, given that he reached base in that plate appearance. And yet, his batting average would take a dip, as, according to the statistical compilation of the stat, he didnt get a hit. And so it would seem, the baseline for those two stats are stacked toward the OBP. Apparently not, as I discovered the other day as I was perusing the box score of yet another loss for my hometown Cubs. There I saw, 2007 firstround draft pick and recent call-up, Josh Vittersstat line. Somehow, it showed a higher average than on base percentage. Both numbers were frighteningly low, which is what first caught my eye, but soon after, I noticed that Vittersbatting average was higher than his OBP. My first thought was that whoever was loading the stats on ESPN had missed something, that he plugged the numbers in, but neglected one category and skewed the numbers. But I checked again the next day, and again it said the same thing. That his batting average was somehow higher than his on base percentage. So much in a state of flummoxery, I actually Googled the question, can a batting average be higher than an on base percentage? Lo and behold, two things were made aware to me that day that the question could certainly b e answered with a big yes, and that you can Google just about any question and get a logica l answer. Unless it is actually possible to post something to the Internet that isnt, in fact, true. But as it turns out, as complicated as the answer might seem to have to be, it is still there, laying within the basic stats we stat-head geeks were swallowing up as youngsters. The on base percentage takes in all plate appearances, whereas batting average only counts official at bats. Hence, reaching on an error takes away from BA, but adds to OBP. Awalk, or being hit by a pitch doesnt hurt the BA, nor the OBP, since itsessentially a non at bat for BA, and a positive for the OBP. But wheres the one stat where you get a plate appearance, but not an official at bat, where you dont reach base? Asacrifice whether a fly or bunt is essentially the same as a walk for the AVG, but in the OBP, itsa plate appearance where you didnt reach base. That would then subtract some points from the OBP, but not from the AVG. But of course, its more logical that a player reaches base via a walk, hit batter and error more often than they would hit a sacrifice fly, or lay down a sacrifice bunt, or both. But in the case of a young player, just brought up, who has happened to loft one into the air to advance a runner more often than he has beaten out a bobbled throw, and taken a fastball in the butt cheek and taken a ball four, it just so happens to be revealed in the numbers what is actually possible.

He can be reached at daniel.hoehne@newssun.com By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING There is nothing like a little mid-season intensity to get things started. It may not have been an artistic masterpiece on either side, given it was the first slate of competition of the young season, but Avon Park finally accomplished a longstanding goal in topping rival Sebring in Tuesdays Preseason Volleyball Classic. Every year weve come here and it was like, I just want to get a game, fifthy ear Lady Devil head coach S tephanie Devlin said. Then w ed maybe get a game and that was it. The girls really came together tonight and played very well. We were as prepared as weve ever been to start the season. Though things werent quite so rosy in Devlins eyes as Sebring took the opener, a 2 8-26 nail-biter that would set the tone for the night. e got called for in the netseven times, she said. Lose a close game like that and give away seven points. But weve got some young players that are being aggressive. The second game was another back-and-forth affair, with Avon Park hanging on to a 14-12 lead midway through. Then Otisha Smith had a block to start a Devil run that pushed the lead to 23-13, aided by a Marina Torres ace. Sebring would push to close to within 23-18, but Avon Park nabbed the next two points to secure the win and even the match at a game apiece. Again in the third game, neither team could run away from the other, with it even at 14-14, then 18-18 and 20-20. But then, Smith sparked a closing run with consecutive kills and the Lady Devils went up 2-1 in the best of five with the 25-23 win. Our serving was really strong tonight, Devlin said. eve been practicing that a lot, and not just the straight hard serves, but moving it around, finding a spot where the other team is struggling. The girls did a really good job of that. And it came in quite handy in what would be the clinching fourth game. Smith had an early ace to knot it at 4-4, and after the Lady Streaks pushed out to a 9-5 lead, Ashley Chacon halted the run with another ace. Later, after a Bella Carabella kill put Sebring up 13-11, Avon Park came back and would tie it on an Alexis Williams ace and take the lead when her very next serve found the floor as well. Another back-and-forth ensued, with the Blue Streaks clinging to a 16-15 lead, but an Otaysha Smith kill sparked a nine-point run that had the Devils on the brink at game-point. Sebring battled for the next two scores, but the Avon Park end of the court soon erupted as the game winner soon fell in. I have to give them all the credit, Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness said. It was a little sloppy on both sides at times, which is understandable, but they were passing the ball well and their serving really hurt us. In the grand scheme of things, sure, it was a preseason match with an underlying intent of merely seeing what each team has to work with and on. But for creating positive momentum right out of the gate, and having a goal accomplished make it something worth that much more. Beating Sebring has always been our goal and I knew we could do it this year, four-year starter Teresa Devlin said. So I was really pumped and ready to go. We just got out there and played our best game. I was about to have a heart attack the whole time but it was a pretty sweet moment getting to 25 in that fourth set.Brahmans tame game DragonsTuesdays nightcap of the Sebring Preseason Classic may have had the greater drama and intensity, but the opener proved to be as much an eye-opener as well. Here it was, a young, inexperienced Lady Dragon squad, looking to replace six players from last years team and still in search of their setter, squaring off with a perennially powerful, poised and just plain tall Okeechobee team. And while the Lady Brahmans did take the match in a three game sweep, which was somewhat expected, it was anything but a runaway stampede. Save for the second game, the contests were kept close by a surprisingly sharp, balanced and not one bit overwhelmed Lake Placid effort. Breauna Corley, one of few returning players with Its been more than eight years since Ive had the opportunity to go fish with a buddy of mine in the backwaters of Charlotte Harbor. Bob Scranton, of Avon Park, has been a die-hard saltwater fisherman since he moved to Florida many,m any years ago. H e and I fished a number of times together in the past, and since moving back to Florida, had been planning a trip for the last couple of months. Last Friday was the day, and it started for both of us a round 3 a.m. Bob had studied the weather and the tides and was convinced that this would be the perfect day. High tide was forecast around 11 a.m. and wed be fishing an outgoing tide for most of the day. We were on the water early, just as the sun was coming up and our first stop was Devilfish Key, where Bob chummed the water and quickly filled his over-sized bait well with greenies and a few small pinfish. Watching the cast-net open in a huge circle, Im always amazed at his proficiency and skill, earned through years of catching his own bait. With enough bait for a d ays fishing, we headed o ver to Cayo Pelau, anchored the boat and climbed over the side into three feet of 90-degree water. Attaching all our gear to our belts and loading our floating bait baskets with lively greenies, we headed off in opposite directions from the boat. Within minutes, we were into a school of sea trout and we were both hooked up. For anyone not familiar with sea trout, they are a very aggressive fish, often in large schools and always hungry. Sea trout must be 15 inches in length to keep and many that we caught were too small, but they were still fun to catch. Years ago, Bob brought m e an old 9-foot fly rod and asked me if I could build it into a spinning rod. H is thinking was that a 9foot rod would allow for a softer, longer cast than a c onventional 6 1/2or 7-foot rod and it force the fish to fight against the rod and not SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, August 24, 2012 Page 3B Courtesy photo Bob Scranton holding one of his keepers from a day on the G ulf with Don Norton.

C M Y K the line. He was right! Since then, Ive built dozens of 9-foot fly rod blanks into spinning rods for him and many other customers. And for anyone who enjoys a real battle catching large, aggressive fish, a longer rod provides that and much more. You can also lob a live bait an incredibly long distance. Bobs experience with sea trout has been that they are a schooling fish, and if the fish are running small, it wasnt likely that wed catch anything bigger out of this school. We each had one keeper, both around 18 inches, so we decided to move to another spot. Sandfly Key proved to be a good choice, and we started catching fish immediately. Trout, catfish, Spanish mackerel and jacks seemed to be everywhere. Every cast produced a different type of fish, but as we watched the sky, a storm was moving in quickly. Within minutes, we had little choice but to continue fishing in the downpour. Fortunately, there was no lightning, but the wind kicked up and the chest high water soon rolled with 1-2 foot waves. Now we were wet from head to toe. Just after the rain ended, I hooked into a big fish. On the very first jump, I recognized it as my favorite saltwater fish, a snook. In the Gulf waters you can catch a snook, but you cant keep them. Its too bad because theyre not only my favorite to saltwater fish, but also my favorite fish to eat. The snook circled me and I feverishly tried to regain the line taken out in the battle, while untangling my net from my bait basket, floating pliers and stringer. Five feet away, the snook rolled over on his side and all I had to do is bring him in a little closer and slide the net under him. But instead, he decided to make one last jump, breaking what Im sure was an already frayed fluorocarbon leader. My heart sank as I yelled over to Bob that I lost the fish. It was a nice fish, probably in the eight-pound range, but as is the case in fishing, you win some you lose some. Twenty minutes later I hooked another snook, out at least 50 feet from where Id cast. One jump and he was off. I guess it just wasnt my day for snook. I got little sympathy from Bob, who was busy having his own excitement. Hed landed one nice redfish and was in the process of landing another, larger one. Bob and I have caught a lot of reds, him more so than me, but they have to be one of the toughest game fish to land on light tackle. Hooking up with a redfish is like trying to reel in a Mack truck thats driving in circles. Theyre just bulldogs in the water and lots of fun to catch. By late afternoon, wed been through another thunderstorm and moved to our third and final spot in Bull Bay. This is a huge, flat area with grassbeds and plenty of hungry fish. With an outgoing tide, it seemed impossible to cast to an area that didnt have fish waiting to attack your bait. Only now it was my turn. And, as luck would have it, a big red decided to strike my greenie, and give me a chance to deal with his powerful swimming skills. Ive caught big fish before, but this one felt likea monster. Unlike snook and trout, reds typically dont break water or jump they just keep pulling, often going in circles as you try to recapture line. At times I wasnt sure my G Loomis 9-foot rod could handle the abuse, imagining at any minute the rod snapping off and losing the fish. But this time, I got him in. What a beautiful fish. And what fun to catch him. Although I imagined him to be much larger, a quick measurement before I let him go showed that he was a solid 28 inches. The limit on reds per day is one each, so this one earned his freedom. Bob was right, he had picked the perfect day!

Gulf fishing provides hits of all types, shapes, sizes varsity experience, played very big at the net, notching blocks and kills to keep the first game close. Senior Samantha Phypers also had a strong performance up front, and freshman Mary Grace Bates crushed a back-row kill. From a 12-10 Okeechobee lead in the first game, a 9-2 run pushed it to 21-12, butt he Dragons kept their comp osure and kept things even the rest of the way before falling 25-17. The big Brahman run came early in the second game, as they scored the first seven and soon were holding a 13-3 lead. B ut again, Lake Placid didt back down nor give in. The rest of that contest was also even up, with the next 24 points scored split right down the middle. That early deficit, however, was just too much to overcome in the 25-15 loss. Fighting back was something the Lady Dragons would have to do again in the third game, though LakeP lacid had it even at 7-7. ABrahman run pushed the lead to 11-7, then 15-9 and 18-11. B ut the girls in green put together a series of short runs t o eventually cut the margin to 23-18. O keechobee got to gamepoint, but Jacalyn Baldwin h eld it off for one extra point with a kill, before the winn ing score soon dropped in the Brahmans 25-19 clincher. I saw a lot of good things o ut there, head coach Linette Wells said. You m ight have thought all the g ames would have been like that second one, but we really played well as a team and I w as pleasantly surprised.

Associated PressPHOENIX Umpire Jim Joyce is being credited with taking quick action to help save the life of a food service worker who collapsed of an apparent heart attack at Chase Field. Russ Amaral, vice president of ballpark operations, says Joyce happened to be walking past Jayne Powers when she collapsed before Monday nights game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Miami Marlins. After deciding it wasnt a seizure, as some of her coworkers suggested, Joyce quickly started CPR. Marlins bullpen catcher Jeff Urgelles, a former firefighter and paramedic, was called to the scene and began helping Joyce. Paramedics arrived moments later and transported the woman to a hospital, where her condition improved. Joyce, Urgelles and others involved were honored in a brief ceremony before Wednesday nights game. Joyce is best remembered for blowing the call that cost Detroits Armando Galarragaa perfect game on June 2, 2010. Galarraga famously said he had no ill feelings after the umpire acknowledged he had missed the call and apologized for doing so.

So far,1,118 illnesses h ave been reported,about half of them in Texas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In an average year,fewer than 300 casesa re reported by midAugust. There have also b een 41 deaths this year. re in the midst of one of the largest West Nileo utbreaks ever seen in the United States,said Dr. L yle Petersen,a CDC official. Never before have so many illnesses been reported this early,said Petersen,w ho oversees the CDCs mosquito-borne illness prog rams. Most infections are usually reported in August and S eptember,so its too early to say how bad this year will end up,CDC officials said. They think the mild wint er,early spring and very hot summer have fostered breeding of mosquitoes that pick up the virus from birds they bite and then spread itt o people. West Nile virus was first reported in the U.S. in 1999 in New York,and gradually spread across the country over the years. It peaked in2 002 and 2003,when severe illnesses reached n early 3,000 and deaths surpassed 260. Last year was mild with fewer than 700c ases. Only about one in five i nfected people get sick. One in 150 infected people will develop severe symptoms including neck stiffness,disorientation,comaa nd paralysis. In recent years,cases h ave been scattered across the country.

C M Y K M etro ServicesMen and women who have s uccessfully adopted healthy lifestyles know full well that combining exercise with a healthy diet is the key to getting and staying healthy.S imply visiting the gym wont work if its not coupled with a healthy diet. But many people incorrectly assume that a healthyd iet is one devoid of taste. That simply isnt true. In fact,a healthy diet does n ot necessarily restrict foods,but how frequently some of those riskier foodsc an be consumed. The following are some of t he steps men and women can take to ensure their workouts arent losing theire ffectiveness due to unhealthy eating habits.Start off with a healthy breakfastMany foods make healthy b reakfast options,including fruit and whole-grain cerea ls. Unfortunately,on-the-go men and women often reachf or whats readily available, and whats readily available i snt necessarily healthy. Avoid breakfast sandwiches that are high in fat and calories,and avoid eating fried foods for breakfast. F or those men and women who prefer to workout first thing in the morning,keep in mind its important to eat before working out,even ift hose workouts are in the wee hours of the morning. Working out on an empty stomach can cause feelings of lightheadedness. In addition,many people a re sluggish if they exercise on an empty stomach,which c an make workouts less effective. If eating before a morni ng workout isnt your thing, consider going with a small s nack before beginning your routine. If even that is not ideal, then consider a snack before bedtime. H owever,this option wont necessarily prove e ffective,as your body might just consume all of the energy this snack provides whiley oure asleep.Reassess your snacking habitsIf greasy potato chips or sleep-inducing baked goods like brownies are your idea of the perfect snack,then itst ime to reassess your snacking habits. Snacks should not induce sleep,but provide a little extra energy and reduce anyh unger pangs. Fresh fruit,yogurt,energy bars,and even whole-grainc rackers with a little peanut butter each make for a healthy snack that wont zapy ou of valuable energy during the day.Let food help your muscles recoverSome people feel they m ight negate the positive effects of their workout if they eat immediately after exercising. Thats not necessarily true. I n fact,foods that contain protein and carbohydrates c an actually help your muscles recover after a workout. Yogurt (Greek yogurt is packed with protein),fruit, dried fruit,and nuts makeg reat post-workout food options,and none will negate the effect of that grueling workout you just finished. I n general,the longer you wait to eat after exercising, the longer it will take your muscles to recover.S tay hydratedWater is an essential part of a healthy diet,and itse ven more essential before, during and after a workout. W hen exercising,your body will lose a significant amount of water,which canc ause the body to dehydrate. Drink water before and after y our workout,and dont forget to focus on staying hydrated during your workDear Pharmacist: This s ummer,ve spent more time outside in the sun,and I ve noticed a bunch of little white spots appearing on myc hest and back. What is this, and how can I treat it? N.C. Orlando Answer: It sounds like y ou may have sun fungus or Tinea versicolor,a fungal infection that occurs on the outer layers of the skin. Its an external manifestation oft oo much yeast in the body that feed on your dead skin cells and skin oils. The yeast called Malassezia globosa causes it,and is usually found on our skin,but it grows in excess in certain conditions and may be triggered by sunny,hot humid environments (youre from Florida). Sorry to say,its generally a recurring condition. Tinea versicolor doesnt develop as a result of sun exposure,but the difference in pigmentation can become more obvious after youve begun tanning. As a pharmacist for 23 years,ve recommended my share of topical ointments. Luckily,they dont smell bad,so it could definitely be worse. Try to find a cream that contains clotrimazole or miconazole since these are very strong anti-fungal agents. These anti-fungal creams are sold at your local pharmacy. Some dermatologists recommend using a dandruff shampoo containing selenium sulfide (Selsun Blue) and applying it to your skin. You can try this by applying it twice daily for aw eek or two and re-evaluate after that. Although topical creams and ointments are usually quite effective and safe,the fungus grows from the inside of the body out. Because of this,there are major factors in your diet and lifestyle that must be addressed to keep the skin condition from recurring. This type of infection (and all fungus-related ones) thrive by you eating sugar, starch and yeast-containing foods. Therefore,avoid eating anything like this,such as all sweeteners (including the artificial ones),fruits, jams,bread,alcohol,as well as other foods that dont necessarily have a high sugar content,but may make your condition worse. Im thinking vinegar,baked goodies, and nuts. Hey,for some of you,the skin condition gives you more incentive to start that new diet youve been itching to try. Stick to the veggies,grassfed meats,eggs,olive, coconut or grape seed oil a nd whole grain pastas (if you eat grains). Dont forget t o supplement with highquality probiotics and othera nti-fungal foods and spices (garlic,turmeric,oregano and grapefruit.) You can also take a skinsoothing bath. A great com-b ination is Epsom salts combined with some baking soda,lemon juice,a few drops of tea tree and clary sage essential oil and somed andruff shampoo. The ratios dont matter much. Keep your skin as clean and dry as possible,and wash your clothing and linens regularly in gentle detergents. No dryer sheets. The best approach uses multiple treatments,with a strong focus on a good diet, free of refined or junk foods with probiotics,digestive enzymes and antioxidants.

My wife liked to sunbathe and I liked to fish,so we purchased a boat with a cuddy cabin. When we were in the ocean fish-i ng,my wife sunbathed on the deck at the front of the boat while I fished off of the back. B efore long,she discovered that she liked fishing and that she got as much sun f ishing as she did sunb athing. Of course,this was good for me because I regularly had to call her down from the deck to net a big fish for me. Smaller ones,Ih ad no problem netting,but w hen they went over 5 p ounds or so,I needed help. I found that there were t hree places to fish:the open o cean,the inlet and the bay. I also discovered that fisherm en who had been fishing there for some time refused to help a neophyte like me. They would not tell you where the best fishing was, what the best bait was or how to fish your bait. Many of the locals f ished from the sides of the i nlet and when fishing for blues or stripers,they used a c ast and retrieve method, with a lead-head jig and bucktail trailing a colored plastic worm. These were effective because a blue on a feeding spree will hit anything that moves,includingo ther blues. While this method of fishing was OK,it was also costly if you did not know what you were doing. There were tons of huge rocks lin-i ng the inlet,and like Charlie Browns tree devoured kites,these rocks devoured fishing tackle. The localswould not tell you how heavy a jig,or what color bucktail or worm to use,nor would they show you how to avoid losing expensive tackle in the r ocks. Some of them treated outsiderswith contempt and sheer meanness. After getting my boat,I f ound that some of the best fishing was in this inlet on the incoming tide. I soon discovered that the closer one got to high tide,the rougher the water got and,u nfortunately,the biggest blues and stripers were f ound in the roughest water. The boaters fishing there would power against the tidet oward the mouth of the inlet,turn back inland,put t he motor in neutral and drift with the current. The walls of the inlet were usually lined with fishermen who would cast as far out ast hey could,allow their rigs to fall to the bottom and b ounce with the current. Most of them had enough sense to cast short of orb ehind the drifting boats. One day,I was drifting the i nlet with a friend. As we passed one group of anglers, a man cast his rig (with mult iple hooks) right over the back of my boat,narrowly missing my friend,who l ooked over and shouted at the jerk to be more careful; t elling him that what he had done was not only stupid,it was dangerous. The men on the shore with him also yelled at him. His responsei s not worth mentioning. On the next drift the idiot did it again. This time,Hug (my friendas a little more vocal,and using much less acceptable language was very critical of the mansi ntelligence (or lack thereof On the third drift,when t he man repeated his actions, Hug grabbed the line,held up a knife and cut the line as he yelled,I told you not to do that again.The rig which the shore fishermanl ost cost him at least $5, maybe more. His stupidity, insensitivity and selfishness cost him our respect and the respect of his fishing bud-d ies,some of whom moved away from him,refusing to fish with him. Actions always have consequences,and when we acts tupidly,or in a mean or insensitive manner,others will see our true character int hose actions. There is a law in physics which states,to everya ction,there is an equal and opposite reaction,which is a lso true in life. The way others treat us,is often a reaction to the way we havet reated them. There is a price to pay for what we do, f or what we say and for the way we treat others. Our credibility,acceptance and our happiness will always be intermingled witho ur actions and the reactions of others to us. What we put i nto life will determine what we get out of it. A smile,a kind word,a gentle touchc ost us nothing,but will return great dividends. The s aying Do unto others as you would have others do unto youis true. W hen I was a pastor and did pre-marital counseling,I would ask the couple if they could identify that one,single element in any relation-s hip which will determine the quality and longevity of that relationship. The answer is simple. How your significant otherf eels about himself or herself when with you will d etermine whether or not they wish to continue in ther elationship. Selah.

M edia outlets report that the school announced Wednesday that billionaire real estate mogul and TV personality Donald Trump would speak at Libertys convocation on Sept. 24. Liberty holds convocation three times a week,giving students the chance to hear from religious figures,politicians and others while worshipping together at the Christian school founded by the late Jerry Falwell. The school says the weekly meetings are the largest gatherings of Christian students in North America. Trump entertained the idea of running for president,but instead endorsed Republican candidate Mitt Romney. O ther notable convocation speakers this fall are actor Kirk Cameron,Veggie Tales producer and author Phil Vischer,Auntie Annies pretzels founder Anne Beiler and Southern Baptist Convention President Fred Luter.Leader of Indiana National Guard criticized for videoINDIANAPOLIS (AP The leader of the Indiana National Guard asked an evangelical Christian organization to take down a web video he made praising its marriage counseling following a complaint from a military watchdog group. The Military Religious F reedom Foundation argues that Maj. Gen. Martin Umbarger violated military rules and the First Amendment by promoting a religious group in the 33-second video while in uniform. Former Air Force attorney Mikey Weinstein,founder of the Albuquerque,N.M.-based group,said Umbargers message promotes one religious group over others and that such a show of support from a two-star general is intimidating within the military. He should be removed immediately and,from our perspective,court-martialed, Weinstein said. Trump to speak at Liberty University TELEVISION NEW YORK (AP the surface,television net-w orks will cover the upcoming Republican and Democratic national conventions much like they have the past few election cycles generally an hour each night on the big broadcasters,more or less full time with the cable news networks. B elow the surface,things are dramatically different. The Internet will give p eople more access to convention halls and a greater opportunity to become parto f the political conversation. The popularity of social m edia and people experiencing big events on TV with tablets and smartphones hasd riven up TV ratings,most dramatically and recently f or the Olympics,and television executives are curious to see if the trend continues in Tampa and Charlotte, N.C. It is possible that social media and the discourse we c an see there can help transform the conventions into something more dynamica gain,something that involves the public,said T om Rosenstiel,director of the Pew Research Centers Project for Excellence in J ournalism. ABC,CBS,NBC,Fox News Channel,PBS and CSPAN are live streaming the convention online prettym uch from start to finish, besides what is being offered on television. ABC Newsonline feed will mimic a television newscastf or three hours prior to the network coming on the air. B loomberg will stream economy-focused panel dis-c ussions that it holds with convention figures. PBS is stationing live webcams at the convention halls and surrounding areas. NBC News will host hangoutswith some of its correspondentso n Google Plus. C-SPANs TV and online coverage is c ommentary-free. The activity reverses a decades-long trend of television networks compressing coverage on the theory thatt he conventions have become stage-managed e vents largely free of news. Yet they are important to candidates,offering the bestf ilter-free way to reach the public along with the presid ential debates. For three nights over two weeks in 2008,more than 40 million p eople watched convention speeches by candidates Barack Obama,John McCain and Sarah Palin on television. T witter and Facebook were barely a speck on the horizon in 2008. Their growing influence speaks directly to the reasons people followb ig events:Asked by Pew two years ago why they keep u p with the news,the largest percentage of Americans 7 2 percent said it was because they enjoy talking with friends and family about what is going on. Social media adds a new layer to this gigantic nonevent,said Jeff Jarvis,am edia critic who writes the Buzzmachine.com blog. Its becoming fascinating. We could all be there. We dont all want to be there but we can talk about it,and that can be more newsworthyt han the actual event. The Olympics were N BCs eye-opener to the power of social media. Others have their own sto-r ies. When Mitt Romney proposed a $10,000 bet to T exas Gov. Rick Perry in a December debate,it was barely noticed at the debate h all,but exploded on Twitter and influenced ABCs decision to emphasize it in debate sum-up,said Marc Burstein,senior executivep roducer at ABC News in charge of convention coverage. The challenge for networks comes in harnessings ocial media for effective use in their coverage. I cant say anybody has found the secret sauce yetb ut theres a lot of great experimenting going on, said Mark Lukasiewicz,producer in charge of NBCs convention coverage. Everything changing for convention coverage MCT Work continues Wednesday on lighting and video arrays on the floor of the Time Warner Cable Arena for the 2012 D emocratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

C M Y K LONDON (AP Britains Prince Harry has been caught on camera doing something embarrassing again. Celebrity gossip website TMZ on Tuesday posted photos of the 27-year-old royal cavorting nude with an unidentified woman in a VIP suite in Las Vegas. Its hardly the first time the prince who allegedly disrobed as part of a game of strip pool has been filmed in a compromising situation. The third-in-line to the throne was famously photographed wearing a Nazi uniform for a costume party, and in another photo-gaffe he was seen cupping the breast of a female TV presenter. Some would argue footage in which he was heard to utter a racial slur while teasing a fellow army cadet from Pakistan was more serious. If the reaction of Britons to Harrys Las Vegas adventure was anything to go by,the nude photos will do little to tarnish his generally positive, party-prince image. The Associated Press asked an assortment of royal watchers and British subjects about what they thought about the princes naked romp.Did Harry do anything wrong?Jim Conlon,a 60-year-old construction worker:The answer to that is categorically NO.Conlon,who was unloading bags of material from a car,seemed genuinely offended by the very question. d be proud of him if he were my son,he said. Conlons opinion was typical of a country where thousands of streets and pubs are named for the royal family. Polls published earlier this year showed support for the monarchy at an all-time high,perhaps buoyed by the celebrations surrounding Queen Elizabeth IIs Diamond Jubilee celebrations marking her 60 years on the throne. Interviews with Londoners up and down the capitals Prince of Wales Road yielded few critics of Harrys antics. Craig Martin,38,another construction worker:s the prince. He can have any bird he wants! Down the road,caregiver Shirley Ashard laughed at the news of Harrys naked adventure,dismissing questions about the propriety of running around a plush hotel room in the buff with a boyswill-be-boys shrug. ve got kids. They do things like that,the 59-yearold said. Hes a lad,for Gods sake.Will this harm the image of the prince or the royal family?Hanad Darwish,a 19-yearold student from Birmingham,worried about what Harrys hijinks said about his judgment. It is a little immature and gives the royals a bad image, he said. But Ingrid Seward,editorin-chief of Majesty magazine,said it wasnt likely that Harrys reputation would suffer. Seward said his party-boy image was part of his approachable,normal persona. Of course its stupid,but it doesnt make people dislike him quite the opposite,she said. It shows that he is a guy who gets into trouble and hes the one people love to love. It could only happen to Harry but we love him for it.She did think,though, that Harry might get a talking-to from Prince Charles. I would think his father would speak to him. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, August 24, 2012Page 9B Fairmount Cinema; 1.736"; 6"; Black; -; DIVERSIONS Dear Abby: Im writing f or advice on friendship.

I went tot heir online wedding registry to select something for them and was stunned to see that several of the items they had on therew ere pricey items for their cats. Is this the status quo these days,or is it just plain bad taste? I chose to put money toward another item,but now Im wondering if it will go where it was directed and not to the cats. It was also suggested that I provide an email address so that an e-card of thanks might be sent. Abby,you keep telling your readers that times have changed.

I do,however,take exception to the idea of ag eneric,mass mailing being used to acknowledge wedding gifts rather than a n individual thank you.

Womans daily phone calls are suffocating friend Dear Abby B y DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie WriterDax Shepard puts his f riends,fiance Kristen Bell, even his own vehicles to good use in Hit & Run,a fun little car-chase comedy thats quite infectious theg ood time clearly had by the filmmakers rubs off on the audience. Done on a tiny budget,the movies stunts and chases are nothing much,but thel ack of resources steers the story away from action and t oward the characters,who are wry,irreverent,even endearing. S creenwriter Shepard,the arenthoodco-star who d irected Hit & Runwith David Palmer,tailors the roles to suit his pals,including Bradley Cooper,Tom Arnold,Kristin Chenowetha nd Parenthoodco-star Joy Bryant. T he result is like a student film made by pros,weirdly idiosyncratic but efficientlyp aced. Its well-scripted and well-acted,and if Hit & R unlingers too long on soso gags and inside jokes Shepard and his friendsf ound particularly funny,it compensates with a freewheeling spirit that pulls v iewers along for the ride. Shepard stars as a guy in w itness protection who took the name Charlie Bronson just why is one of the subtly amusing bits of Hit & Run.A former getawayd river for a gang of bank robbers,Charlie betrayed his pals for a sort-of noble reason,but Shepards doesnt play him as a hoodlum with a halo. Charlies a man who did wrong,is trying to makea mends but offers no excuses for his misdeeds and is willi ng to pay the price should they come back to haunt him. Of course,they do. Now living in rural Californiaw ith academic Annie (Bell Charlie decides to break cover and drive her back to his old stomping grounds in Los Angeles,where shes gota n interview for her dream job running a campus program in conflict resolution. Through the scheming of h er old beau,Gil (Michael Rosenbaum),Charlie and A nnie wind up pursued by his old gang,including Alex Demitri (CooperC harlies ex-girlfriend,Neve (Bryant A rnold plays federal agent Randy,Charlies witnessprotection minder. A haplessb lusterer,Randys at the center of many of the movies physical gags; some are m ildly funny,but there mostly repetitive and disposa ble,often putting the brakes on the action so Arnold can launch into another fit of bellowing. Oddly for a road romp,the m ain charm of Hit & Run comes from the verbal exchanges,either when the characters are standing still or sharing strange intimacies during a high-speed chase. Shepard and Bell make s uch a natural couple on screen that its easy to imagi ne them,right or wrong,living out a blissfully perfect relationship in real life. They share low-key,tender moments and some tough,i ntelligent quarrels that feel genuine enough to have filtered up out of their own experiences together. Coopers an oddly engagi ng bad guy,his dreadlocks and gaudy red running pants setting him apart from the usual Hollywood heavy. He blends viciousness with sensitivity,compassion withg reed,making Alex all the more volatile,dangerous and entertaining for his unpred ictability. Chenoweth has a couple of bawdy scenes as Annies boss,and Beau Bridges pops up briefly as Charlies dad. Hit & Runalso features quick cameos from other buddies of Shepard and his crew. The goodwill among all these friends spills off the screen to make Hit & Run, despite its bland title,morec lever and distinctive than the average chase flick. S hepard cast two of his own vehicles a supercharged 1967 Lincoln Continental and his Tatum racing dune buggy and hed emands as much from them as he does of the actors. Our cars are extensions of our lives and temperaments. The fact that Shepard laid hisw heels on the line puts an even more personal spin on the movie Shepard gives a good chase in fun, infectious Hit & Run Courtesy photos Dax Shephard, Kristen Bell (above ( right) star in Hit & Run.

Who wants to schlep all the w ay to the gym when you have a nice cozy bed and a new episode of Lostwaiting for you? The truth is exercise doesnt just keep you physically fit,said Anna Lutz,a registered dietitian at Duke University who works at the health center. Its a way of dealing with stress as a first-year student. The good news is you dont have to plan gym time every day to get in exercise. Simple things like walking to class instead of taking the bus and working out with a buddy to keep you motivated are great ways to sneak in exercise,Lutz said. Y ou should make exercise just as important as going to class and doing your homework,she said. Brianna Bond,McClatchy-TribunePORTABLE EQUIPMENTWith term papers and tests to study for,sometimes your daily w orkout gets pushed to the last priority. But the benefits to your body and mind are so great its worth it to fit it in. Martha Tillman,the director of the campus fitness center at Washington University in St. Louis,offered some simple suggestions for exercises and tools that can be used in a small space. Stability equipment(such as balls,discs and a balancing board):These tools are versatile because they work a variety of muscle groups. For the board and disc,the workout is largely based on balance. You can add free weights or resistance bands to s imple exercises like leg lifts for an additional challenge. Resistance band:Perfect for toning trouble spots like underarms and quadriceps,this simple,effective tool will work wonders for your arms and legs. Because there are so many different ways to use it,Tillman suggests sticking with simple moves to ensure youre safely working your target area. Try placing the band underneath one foot then curl with one or both arms. Free weights:Youll likely use these for endurance training because you cant change the weight,but its still a great way to work the chest and upper body area. Feel free to get creative and take advantage of items you have lying around your room,like using soup cans to do bicep curls,Tillman said. Tillman suggests making an appointment with a personal trainer at your university recreation center,a service most universities o ffer,to help customize your workout. Costs range depending on the school and type of trainer. You should aim to get 30 minutes of exercise into your schedule every day,Tillman said,but it doesnt matter if you choose to do it all at once or split it up. Brianna BondGYM ETIQUETTEExercising at your campus gym is not the same as participating i n your high school gym class or after-school basketball practice. Those who use a universits recreation facilities are serious about their workouts and will expect you to follow gym etiquette rules. Manners have everything to do with cleanliness and safety, said Mary Mitchell,author of The Complete Idiots Guide to Etiquette.Thats why they are especially important at the gym. Many students use a trip to the gym as a way to relieve stress, so confronting a slob or a weight machine hog is the last thing anyone wants to do. But if you have to,Mitchell recommends k eeping a neutral tone and not getting personal. Offer your criticism in private,she said. Mitchell offers rules to help you: Dont leave the equipment sweaty.Most gyms have towels and disinfectant handy; be sure to use them or bring your own to wipe down weight machines and spare others from sitting in a p uddle of your sweat. Gyms are for exercising,not socializing.If you run into friends,keep chatting to a minimum near machines and aisles. Keep the locker room neat and tidy.Dont leave your b elongingslying in a pile on the floor or in front of someone elses locker. Be sure to leave the sink and shower clean. Keep aisles clear.While exercising,keep your water bottle, towel and anything else,out of the aisles; they are tripping hazards. W ait your turn.You have to wait for equipment and so does everyone else. Dont use a weight bench or equipment to rest between reps. And put away the weights you add to a machine or bar the next person may not be able to carry that 45-pound plat e back to the stand as easily as you.

Below is a quick and easy recipe for a vegetarian couscous salad that can be easily prepared in a dorm setting. Its a popular dish from in-dorm cooking demonstrations conducted by volunteers from the Davis Food Co-Op in Davis,Calif. The program sends co-op volunteers to different dorms at the request of the residential advisers to hand out literature on budget shopping and talk about some of the health risks associated with certain foods like those with high levels of trans fats. The presentation is capped off with a cooking demonstration of a simple and healthy meal,right in the dorm. This recipe is most popular with the college crowd,probably because its versatile,healthy and delicious. Dont be afraid to get creative and supplement with a favorite ingredient like mushrooms,roasted red peppers or cilantro. Couscous SaladServings:2 Bring water to a boil; add salt. Pour over couscous and let stand,covered,10 minutes while you chop vegetables. Add other ingredients. Toss well. Serve warm or refrigerate to serve later. Brianna BondTHE DINING HALLCollege dining has changed dramatically over the years,said nutritionist Ann Selkowitz Litt,author of the book The College Students Guide to Eating Right.The days of mystery meatare over and have been replaced by sushi,stir-fry and brick-oven pizza. Litt has some tips on how to eat right,even on a meal plan: Use salad bar smarts.Go easy on extras like croutons,bacon bits and dressing. One ladle-full can add up to 360 calories to an otherwise nutritious salad. Side salads can be made into an entre by adding eggs,chicken or tofu. Ask how food is prepared.Go for steamed,baked,broiled, roasted or grilled foods rather than fried foods. Schedule your meals.Leave time for breakfast; it will reduce the urge to graze later in the afternoon. Also,dont feel guilty about nighttime snacking. If youre going to be awake into the wee hours of the morning to cram for a test,a healthy snack like yogurt or cereal can help keep you going. Be aware of portion size.Dining halls are a lot like restaurants; they might give you more food than you actually need to eat to have energy through the day. Eat until youre satisfied,and resist picking at your leftovers while youre socializing in the dining hall after a meal. Its all about options.Opt for veggie burgers over beef,baked potatoes over fries,whole grains over white,water over soda,and skim milk over whole. Most dining halls have healthier options if you just ask. Dont drink your calories.Alcohol,soda and even fruit juice add calories to your diet that you may forget to count.

Classes,exams and parties will go on without you,so learning how to keep yourself healthy is essential. or many students,its the first time in their lives that they are responsible for their health,said Dr. Alan Glass,director of the health center at Washington University in St. Louis. Practicing basic hygiene can prevent many common bugs. I always tell students that the best three things they can do is wash their hands,wash their hands and wash their hands,said Michael McNeil,coordinator of Temple Universitys Health Empowerment Office. Glass and McNeil had more advice to help avoid an illness: Get plenty of sleep,maintain a balanced diet and exercise. This helps keep the immune system healthy. Your school may require certain vaccinations. Glass recommends that each student should be inoculated against meningitis. Also think about getting an influenza shot from the health center. Stop your room from becoming an incubator for germs. Wash your clothes regularly,dont let dirty dishes pile up and ventilate the room once in a while. Jamie LivengoodDEALING WITH ILLNESSIf you do get sick during the semester,Mom wont be around to take your temperature,administer cough syrup and make sure youre getting enough fluids. Here are some tips on taking care of yourself: Stock up on some basic over-the-counter medications and first aid supplies fever reducer,pain reliever,decongestant,cough suppressant,antihistamine,band-aids and antiseptic. Some health centers have sample sizes of medications available in their offices. A thermometer is also useful, but not necessary. Dont go to class if you feel too sick. You cant concentrate when you feel poorly anyway,plus you only risk making others sick. If you dont get better on your own in five days,its time to make an appointment at your campus clinic. Its better to err on the side of seeking health,Glass said,so go as early as you feel you need to. Health services vary from campus to campus,so check out your clinics Web site or pamphlets preferably before you catch a bug. Jamie LivengoodINSURANCE PLANSAs you make the final preparations to head off to college, youll want to take a minute to sit down with your parents and di scuss health insurance coverage. While you may plan to continue to get coverage as a dependent on your parents plan,you may not be eligible as a full-time student,as some employers are lowering the age of coverage to 21,or in some cases 19,according to Susan Barry,marketing director for Student Resources,a marketer of student health insurance. Also,if youre going to school away from home,particularly outside your home state,your parents plan may not cover you (PPOs and HMOs have a specific network within which universi ty health centers are rarely recognized as providers). The majority of four-year institutions offer health insurance plans. There are several advantages to purchasing a health care plan through your school,Barry said. The health center can act as your place for primary care,whi ch means you wont have to worry about finding doctors. Also,you wont have to file any claims because most health centers process that information,Barry said. Regardless of your decision,make sure to sort it out before you leave so youre not left without a safety net. Brianna Bond1 cup plus 1 Tbsp. water 1 tsp. salt 1 cup whole wheat couscous 2 Tbsp.
