By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The intersection of Hammock Road and Lakewood Road at the Highlands County YMCA has long been an issue for drivers,as long lines of cars can back up due to cars waiting to enter or exit Lakewood Road. Assistant County Engineer Elius Nortelus is the project manager.The basic plan is to widen the roads to create adequate turn space and reduce delays at the intersection. The project consists of the construction of left-turn and right-turn lanes and the widening of approximately 1,100 feet of Hammock Road and approximately 500 feet of Lakewood Road, Nortelus said. The Highlands County Board of County Commissioners approved the project and the construction contract with Excavation Point Inc. The project will cost $283,322,according to Nortelus.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Highlands County has been chosen to receive $43,073 to supple-m ent emergency food and shelter programs in the county. The selection is made by the national board that is chaired by the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities,USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; The Salvation Army; The Jewish Federations of North America,The Salvation Army; and,United Way Worldwide. The local board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in highneed areas around the coun-t ry. A local board,made up of local government officials, clergy,emergency service providers,homeless representatives,and United Way will determine how the funds awarded to Highlands County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The local board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds available under this phase of the program. Under the terms of the grant from the national board,local agencies chosen to receive funds must:1) be p rivate voluntary non-profits o r units of government,2) be e ligible to receive federal f unds,3) have an accounting s ystem,4) practice non-disc rimination,5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs,and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization,they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Highlands County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously with four local recipient organizations participating.

Lieutenants Darin Hood, Kenny Johnson and Paula Weeks successfully graduated from the program andw ere presented with their certifications in a ceremony last week in Bartow. Previous graduates of the program from the Highlands County Sheriffs Office include Sheriff Susan Benton,Business Administrator Lisa Burley, Captain Paul Blackman and Detention Deputy David Sweet. According to the Florida Center for Public Management, the Certified Public Manager program is a nationally-recognized program for training and developing public managers and supervisors. It is currently offered in 38 states and by the federal government. Primary goals of the program are to professionalize public management and improve organizational efficiency and effectiveness. In Florida there are more t han 4,000 graduates of the program from over 100 a gencies. The program consists of eight levels,each of which includes classroomi nstruction,homework assignments and exams. The first part of the program concentrates on leadership management and people skills,the secondp art focuses on understanding complex organizations and the formation of poli-c ies. The program usually takes a two-year commitment to complete. R ecently Florida Governor Rick Scott issueda proclamation making the week of Aug. 12-18 as Certified Public Manager Recognition Week. By this proclamation Scott encouraged all Floridians to recognize our certified public managers for their commitment to enhancing the quality and availability of government services.A copy of the proclamation is available at www.fcpm.fsu.edu/News.cf m?idsNews=8.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Facing mandates to find m ore detailed and objective ways of evaluating teachers that are based on student progress and classroom observation,Highlands County joined a group of other school districts to develop a news ystem early. This response makes the school dist rict one of the leaders in creating a new process,and has enabled it to share in Race ToThe Top federal funding and aB ill and Melinda Gates grant. The new evaluation system is complic ated; its components mandated by the state. Fifty percent of a teachers score is based on statistical formulas derived f rom student FCAT scores and half on classroom observation. For teachers whose students or subject matter are not covered by the FCAT,student progress is even harder to calculate. A s a result there is a great deal of confusion and fear. Derrel Bryan appeared before the school board Tuesday to introduce members of the Teacher CommunicationC orps,and explain what they do. Im going to brag on em a lot t onight,Bryan told the school board, referring to the eight Corps membersw ho remained active throughout the year answering teachersquestions and correcting misconceptions. In order to be chosen the individuals have to stay current with the process,be able to present ideas clearly and comfortable fielding questions. T heir purpose is to address questions and concerns,share success stories and p romote openness,Bryan said. By opening doors of information at every school the individuals built a better climate and clarify issues. When rumors fly,no one benefits,Bryan added. C orps members do not formally address groups. I nstead they met informally one-onone with teachers in need of information. If the Corps member did not know an a nswer,Bryan said,they knew where the information could be found. C orps members did not just explain rules and process,they listened to the teachers and provided feed back to dist rict administrators too. Mary Pinson,of Lake Placid Middle School and a member of the Corps,said some teachers had become paranoid because of the lack of accurate informa-t ion. She took on the extra work,she said, after one teacher told her that the district was looking to fire everyone and start over fresh,and I knew that wasntt rue. Pinsons colleagues are Jani Antrim, P atricia Carter,Cheryl Humphrey, Stephanie Moreo,Steve Picklesimer,JonS pencer,and Sherryl Wolfe.

C ameron DVaughnte Ancrum,20,was booked Thursday for attempted murder,shooting a firearm in public,improper exhibitiono f a firearm and two counts of armed robbery. According to arrest reports,two men said they were standing in front ofC lub Sensation at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and LemonA venue at around 11 p.m. on Aug. 18 when one of the men said that someone grabbed the gold chain from around his neck. T he first victim said he turned around and saw a man, whom he later identified as Ancrum,pointing a gun at his face. He was robbed of moret han $7,800 worth of jewelry. The second victim said another man,who was not identified in the report, shoved a gun in his face andd emanded his money and jewelry. He said he took off his n ecklace and bracelets and was about to reach into his pocket,where he was carrying a .38-caliber revolver, when the suspect pushed hima gainst the wall and took the gun. The second man said he was robbed of $3,350 worth of items including jewelrya nd the $50 gun before a shot was fired,allegedly by Ancrum,and the second victim ran inside the club. When the suspects fled,the f irst victim reportedly ran to his truck,grabbed a gun and gave chase. He followed thes uspects to an alley between Shirley and Harris Streets when he said one of the suspects,reportedly Ancrum, shot at him two or threet imes.

For some,the artifact b ecame a symbol of hope. People wrote messages on it. Religious services wereh eld in its shadow.There are those who have a lot of e motional investment in it and what it stands for. Not everyone feels that w ay.To some,the cross is an offensive symbol. And when plans were made to include the item in the National September 11M useum,the group called American Atheists chose to express that displeasure with a lawsuit,filed last year. A ccording to an article I read on www.washingtonp ost.com,the lawsuit contends that having the crossi n the museum is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion,given the fact the museum is on public property. Not only that,buti ncluding it in the museum would result in injury,both emotional and physical (as in suffering extreme anxiety) to atheists who alsol ost loved ones in the tragedy. A nytimes.com blog recently reported that the museum filed in court to have the lawsuit dismissed, citing the fact that it is a private non-profit agency and thus exempt from the Constitutions establishment clause. Moreover, they argued,the cross was not being displayed as a religious symbol,but as a relic from the 9/11 attacks. The museum has been experiencing other problems besides this lawsuit and no one seems to know when it will open. Its kind of sad when you think about it the museum is something we can all get behind but instead we squabble. The president of American Atheists,David Silverman,suggested that if the cross wasnt removed perhaps all religions should be allowed to place a symbol of equal size and stature to the large cross, including atheists. If workers had found such structures in the rubb le,I could see that. If somehow a bunch of beams h ad formed a Star of David,Id have no problems including that in them useum. If they had formed some sort of symb ol that atheists revered (though I dont know what that would be) and the m useum wanted to include the relic,hey,its part of the history. Include it. But such things werent found. The cross that wasf ound is part of the lore that is 9/11. Its not being separated from the rest of the museum; its supposed to be part of a display of at housand other things that were a part of that awful t ime. Is that such a terrible thing? A s Susan Jacoby,an atheist,points out,the museum may well include examples of impromptu memorials that appeared atG round Zero and around Manhattan. They included religious symbols,such as Stars of David and small statues of Buddha. She log-i cally asks if these too must be barred from the museum. The museum is supposed to tell the story of 9/11. Like it or not,that story includes some religion. Many turned to their faiths in the days that followed. The metal cross was a source of comfort for some who badly needed comforting in those long,sad days following the event. Im sorry that some find that offensive. But as I keep pointing out,the First Amendment does not mean you are free from being offended. The history is what it is. And like it or not,a battered metal cross is a part of that history. Lets not hide the fact for fear that someone will be offended. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Formerly a lawyer and then the president of the Midwestern Ice Cream Company,Vollmer now dedicates himself to educational reform. Formerly ac ritic of public schools,he has become a major advocate for them. His main point,with which the NewsSun agrees,is that we used to ask our schools to help teach children what they need to know to succeed. N ow,however,we ask schools to raise our kids. C onsider the history as Vollmer lays it out in the video. Formal education in the United States b egan in the mid-17th century. Created for white boys,there were only three s ubjects reading,writing and arithmetic. By the 18th century,the subject matter had been expanded to include civics, history,science and geography. T here things stood for approximately 150 years. B y 1900,however,influenced by the industrial revolution and waves of immigration,schools were used to selecta nd sort thinkers from the doers.Social concerns were reflected in new programs teaching about health and nutrition and providing immunizations. Between 1910 and 1930,Vollmer says,there was another expansion.S chools now had physical education programs and team sports and taught practical arts,like home economics and vocational education. In the 1940s,Vollmer says,half-day kindergarten was introduced,as wasb usiness education,speech and drama. School-prepared lunches began at this t ime. By the 1950s,math and science classes were expanded,as well as art,musica nd foreign languages. Drivers education and sexual education became part o f the curriculum,too. In the 1960s,schools added consumer and adult education. Advanced placement began as did Head Start and Title I, which helped increase education forl ow-income familes In the 1970s,parenting classes,drug a nd alcohol education,special education,environmental education,Black history and womens studies were intro-d uced and Title IX,which made gender discrimination illegal and is most noted f or its effect on sports,became law. To ensure better learning,schools started to serve breakfast in addition to lunch. By the 1980s,kindergarten was a fulld ay program,non-English speakers went to special language classes (ESOLcomputer education was added and after-school programs began. Schools were mandated to monitor for c hild abuse a teacher can be arrested for ignoring the clues and promoting teen pregnancy awareness. The 1990s saw conflict resolution classes,distance learning and at-risk and drop-out prevention. T oday schools are at the forefront in the effort to prevent bullying and taking a lead in the fight against childhood obesity. Recently they were ordered to make the leap from print to electronict extbooks. Keep in mind,this is not a complete l ist of a schools responsibilities. We strongly agree with Vollmer when he says no generation of teachers and administrators in history has had to fill this mandate,and each year the pressureg rows. e must recognize our common i nterests,and do our part to help our schools create the graduates and citizens we need. Our schools cannot do ita lone. Amen. Schools cant do it alone anymore At Tuesdays school board meeting, Superintendent Wally Cox showed a video created by Jamie Vollmer,an advocate for public s chools. Mud bog would destroy the nothingEditor: As a neighbor of the proposed Swamp Hammock mud bog,I appreciated last weeks invitation to the open house that was organized to showcase the plans of the developers. The property is beautiful; it is truly Florida land that is unique and is in danger of vanishing. I understand that the developers are hoping to come to an understanding with the existing neighbors; however, the open house did not present a true picture of what to expect. There werent thousands of vehicles on the road or trying to enter the property. There werent hundreds of ATVs and/or monster trucks traveling through the area. There werent hundreds or thousands of people carrying alcohol on the property. The alcohol vendors werent set up on the property selling alcohol. There wasnt a sniper weapon range operating. There also wasnt an explanation of how the developers planned to justify the dangerous combination of the above and a narrow two-lane country road with its 90-degree turns and many curves. Our neighborhood is very unique. There are times when the air is still enough that with a gentle breeze in the right direction,I can hear the chain rattle on my front gate a quarter of a mile away. Other times,the night sounds of frogs and cicadas are deafening. At times there are hundreds of sand hill cranes nesting in the surrounding wetlands. I seriously question how this noisy environment will impact their home and other wildlife in the area. Advocates of the impending recreationalarea say,Good location, theres nothing out there.The nothingwould be destroyed. A place for families and local organizations to pack up their potato salad and baked beans and whatever beverage they enjoy to have good clean fun together is a wonderful idea,but the present plan for Swamp Hammock is out of control. I have strong ties and a great love our community. I taught school here for 30 years before retiring; my husband Steve Skipper taught agriculture at SHS. I cant possibly repay this community for the support it has given my family over years,especially when Steve had a lung transplant. I dont want to offend anyone,but my back is up against the wall. I cant watch a part of Florida and the rural ranching lifestyle that settled Highlands County be threatened without speaking out. Beth Skipper Lake PlacidOne payer system is needed hereEditor: Halliburton Dick Chenes company that got a no bid contract for the Iraq War and fleeced billions of tax dollars from the American people and the Republican party that allowed it to happen. Millions of American veterans claims are being blocked by that same Republican party,just as they blocked the bonus money due World War I veterans under the Hoover administration. Seven hundred and forty World War II veterans are dying each and everyday from asbestos exposure and their claims being denied. Halliburton and the lying Republican party,with the help of the senator from Utah,Orin Hatch and Vice President Dick Cheney,blocked in Congress,not only veteransclaims but civilians claims in the millions. They claimed that the large corporations,like Halliburton Vice President Dick Chenes company,would set up funds to take care of asbestos claims. The funds are not being paid out as promised to those who have been exposed to asbestos and are dying in large numbers. The American veteran of World War II is being again shafted as they were under the Republican Hoover administration in 1929. The Veterans of Foreign Wars and all veteran organizations should raise hell with the American Republican Congress that allowed this fund to be set up and are now blocking the pay out of these funds to the veterans of World War II. The fund was only a ploy to beat the veterans of World War II claims who are dying at the rate of 740 a day due to exposure to asbestos. We,the American taxpayers,are indirectly paying for the healthcare of the world,yet the Republican Congress are allowing millions of Americans to die needlessly,each and every day for the lack of healthcare. We,the United States Bank,rank 37th in the world on healthcare. We need a one payersystem like we help pay for the rest of the world. Billie E.

T he meeting begins at 6 p.m. in city council chambers at 123 E. Pine St. The proposed fee schedule sets a rate of $165 per residential dwelling. Non-residential buildings are divided into categoriesb ased on square footage. Warehouse and industrial building fees run from $50 for structures of 1,999 square feet or less to $2,489 for those of more than 50,000 square feet. Proposed assessment fees for commercial buildings range from $133 to $6,652 and for institutional buildings from $179 to $8,943. N ursing homes,because of the high volume of emergency calls,will pay the highest proposed assessments from $1,299 to $ 64,966. The assessments are collected on the 2012 a d valorem tax bill that is mailed out in November. Failure to pay the assessments will cause a tax certificate to be issued against the property,which could lead to a loss of title. C opies of the fire rescue assessment ordinance,the initial assessment resolution,the final assessment resolution,the preliminary rate resolution for fiscal year 2012-13,and the updated assessment roll are available for inspection at City Hall,110 E.

C M Y K B y JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Ryan Dick scored three touchdowns and passed for another as Avon Park came back from a 12-point, fourthquarter deficit beat visiting T enoroc, 26-18. Tenoroc scored the first two times they had the ball, the first on their opening drive as they moved the ball at will against the Avon Park defense. The drive covered 60 yards on eight plays, culminating in a 7-yard touchdown run for a 6-0 lead. The second time Titans capitalized on a short field when they recovered a Dick fumble and returned it to the Red Devils 27. Four plays later quarterback Victor Smith connected with Darius Frasier on a 12-yard touchdown pass fora 12-0 lead. Despite being behind, Avon Park head coach Lee Brown did not seem to be concerned. We got to play 48 minutes, he said. We knew that there would be some challenges early on. O n Avon Parks next possession, Dick scored his f irst touchdown on the seco nd play with a 70-yard run. The extra point was missed and Avon Park trailed 12-6 with 4:30 left in the first quarter. Tenoroc controlled the remainder of the first quarter and continued to do so in the second as the Avon Park offense struggled. And though the Titans dominated in time of possession and number of playsr un, they were unable to score against the Avon Park defense and the lead held at 12-6 at the half. T he offensive struggles for the Devils continued in t he third quarter as they lost a fumble and punted twice o n their first three possessions. At the same time, the Avon Park defense was getting stronger, forcing a turnover on downs and a three-and-out. That punt, however, pinned the Red Devils back on their own 1-yard line. T hey soon punted from there, after Dick was nearly sacked for a safety. The short punt that foll owed gave Tenoroc the ball on Avon Parks 24 to start t he fourth quarter. The Titans scored soon a fter to take an 18-6 lead on a three-yard touchdown run by Smith. But with the lead lengt hened and time beginning to work against them, it was now or never for the Devils. Dick got the next drive s tarted well, with a 13-yard run and lofted a deep pass down the left-center of the field. T he pass fell incomplete, but a pass interference call w as made in Avon Parks f avor. That penalty, combined with unsportsmanlike penalty on the Tenoroc sideline pushed Avon Park past midSPORTS B SE CTION Inside This Section Dragons held off by Hardee. . .3B Marital Arts after school . . .4B News-Sun Sunday, August 26, 2012 Courtesy photo A bevy of blockers clears the way for this Kasey Hawthorne touchdown run during the Eagles clean sweep of Auburndale in youth football action on Saturday, Aug. 18. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFCofficial season opener on Saturday, Aug. 18, at Joe Franza Stadium to take on the Auburndale Hounds. The Eagles coaches and players were anxious to get on the field knowing that from this point on, every game counts and each win is one step closer to a divisional playoff game. The Lady Eagle cheerleaders started off the day getting the players pumped up for the slate of games and boosting the team spirit in the stands with the spectators. The first team to take the field was the Flag team, ages 5and 6-years old and coached by Steve Remes. On the first play of the game, William King ran the kickoff back for 60 yards to score the first touchdown of the day with Fred Hankerson making the extra point for an early 7-0 lead. The defense made their presence known and stood strong with key defensive plays by Julian Cardoso, John Alexander, Hankerson and King. The offense continued to drive throughout with Alexander taking in two and Hankerson one additional touchdown to wrap up the day with a final score of 136. It was a very exciting game with the Eagles getting the first win of the season. Next to take the field was coach Justin Jacksons Mighty Might team, ages 7, 8 and 9. The Eagles took the fie ld with pride and quickly dominated with running back Taivion Coston breaking out to score the first touchdown Eagles send Hounds to the doghouse See EAGLES, Page 4B N ews-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE S hannon Huber lets out a scream and Shelbi Bertram celebrates as Lake Placid topped the Lady Streaks in Thursdays final day of the Sebring Preseason Classic. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Avon Park was brought back down to earth a little bit, while Lake Placid bounced back in a big way in Thursday nights finale of the Sebring Preseason Volleyball Classic. Amid an onrushing storm that kept knocking the lights out during the title game, the Lady Red Devils were stopped in three games by Okeechobee. After getting out to a strong start, and a 25-12 win in the opener, the Lady Brahmans were given all they could handle as Avon Park regrouped. The power kept going out, but that didnt mean we were going out, seniorT eresa Devlin said. That was certainly the case as the Devils fought back, tooth-and-nail, with the perennially strong Chobees quad. It wasnt quite enough, in the end, as the Brahmans held on for dueling 25-22 wins, but it gave Avon Park a glimpse of the level theyll have to play at as the regular season gets underway. e hung with them the whole time, they were close games, Devlin said. They just a lot more consistent. Consistency is certainly what Sebring is looking for more of, on the positive said, as they fell for the second time in the tournament, in four games to Lake Placid. The Lady Dragons came out looking for redemption from their three-game sweep at the hands of Okeechobee Tuesday, but the players had perhaps another incentive as well. I told the girls that this is basically their tryout for starting positions, head coach Linette Wells said. I think that, as well as playing against Sebring, really brought their level of play up. It began that way, with Lake Placid jumping out to a 7-1 lead in the opener. But with the help of a Meghan Lollis block and an Allie Mann kill from the back row, the Lady Streaks battled back to within 13-12. Another Lollis block, along with one from Paige Lewis and a Jordan Hinkle Dragons top Streaks, Chobee takes title See TOURNEY, Page 3B N ews-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Otisha Smith goes for the block of Darby Jones shot in Okeechobees win during t he title game of the Sebring Preseason Classic. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The effects of Hurricane Isaac werent yet b eing felt, but Sebring got a little dose as the Dade Christian Crusaders rained on their parade Friday, winning the Kick Off Classic game at Firemens Field by a 24-14 final. AClass 2Apowerhouse, Dade Christian would prove to be a tough test with three first half scores, though each of the extra points were missed, to push the Crusaders out to an 18-0 lead and leave the Blue Streaks back on their heels. But this is the preseason, after all, and its a game like this that will test a teams mettle as the regular season awaits. e didnt play well in the first half and got into a hole, head coach LaVaar Scott said. Thats a very good team with some weapons, but we just needed to play harder. We had a much better effort in the second half. That they did as, after a trade off of interceptions, one by Blue Streak defensive back Arthur Williams, Sebring mounted a drive that was capped off by a touchdown run from Lake Placid transfer A.J. Gayle. That score cut it to 24-7, after Hunter Livingstons extra point kick split the uprights, with 6:13 left in the third. Both defenses held for the remainder of the period, with the Streaks keeping wide receiver Terrance Alls, a recent Duke signee in relaCrusaders stymie Blue Streaks See SEBRING, Page 3B C ourtesy photo R yan Dick flies through the Tenoroc defense on a 70-yard score, one of four touchd owns he would account for in Avon Parks win.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWAUCHULA There are two ways to go about scheduling a Kick Off Classic, going for a Homecoming patsy for some early momentum, or locking horns with a strong team to get a better gauge. In facing Hardee, Lake Placid was obviously going w ith the latter option. And in so doing, the Dragons may have absorbeda 35-6 loss, but it was the little things seen within that were the greater benefit. Ever polished and potentially explosive on offense, the Wildcats showed a bit of both in their early scores. After taking the opening kick off, Hardee drove 60 yards in 10 plays for one, then after a Lake Placid punt, the first play from scrimmage produced a 55yard sprint and score for a 13-0 lead less than five minutes in. And while fifth-year head coach Jason Holden wasnt exactly joyous, he was seeing positives, noting that the Dragons technique was good, that it wasnt a mattero f missing tackles. There is just little accounting for the everpresent speed the Wildcats u sually bring to the table. The Lake Placid offense, w hile getting little room to b reath, much less run or set up to pass, for quarterback Robert Walton, did show some sporadic signs of life. Walton connected on a 28-yard pass play to Ricky Miller late in the first on third and long for a first down, and soon got around the edge on a roll out for another long gain. Foster Walker produced some nice runs throughout, though the scoreboard was not yet showing any fullf ruition. Another Hardee drive culminated in a short touchdown pass midway through t he second for a 20-0 lead, and a fumbled punt snap we f ind the Dragon end zone f or a safety to make the halftime margin 22-0. The Wildcats would find two more second-half scores, but Lake Placid would make their mark as well. Halfway through the third quarter, the tandem of Walton and Miller would hook up again, this time on a 61-yard touchdown toss, to give the Dragons something to build off of. And while there is work t o be done in sharpening up the offense, some basic positives were seen, with just one fumble on the night, L ake Placid wasnt giving Hardee extra possessions, a nd the Dragons did show s ome offensive weapons for when the offense does begin to tighten up and show some polish. Lake Placid will spend the week practicing before hosting Celebration in its home opener to the regular season Friday. tive check. With 8:57 left in the fourth, however, Dade got a breakaway run on a quarterback keeper to up the ante to 24-7. But Gayle returned the ensuing kick off with a battering return past midfield. And Sebring soon showed itsexplosive potential on offense as quarterback Brandon Ferretti soon hooked up with wideout LaDante Harris on a 43-yard scoring pass moments later. Livingstons kick again was true and it was a 24-14 contest with 8:36 left to play. The Streaks defense would hold and get them the ball back for another chance to cut into the lead, but no more scoring plays would be made and it was off to reflection and preparation. ou want to face a tough team so you can see what you need to work on, Scott said. Im not that upset, its a decent start and it lets us coaches know that weve got to do a better job in getting the guys ready to play. We had some real good efforts, we just have to play better The Blue Streaks will get back at it this week and prepare to face DeSoto on the road next week to open the regular season.

But the Dragons held on for the 25-23 win and take the match lead. That was evened up quickly though, as Sebring was the team that came out firing in the second game, racing out to a 10-3 lead. They built on the lead until it was 20-12 before Lake Placid began to creep backi nto it. R achel Alejandro had consecutive scores, on a block and tip, aiding a run to close it to 21-18, but two service aces from Hinkle soon closed out the 25-18 Streak win. But that late run by the Dragons was a forebear of t hings to come. During a tight battle in the early going of game three, Sebring began to break it open and pushed a 9-8 deficit to a 23-13 lead. But the combination of a Lake Placid surge, and a series of Streak miscues, saw the lead dwindle. Nine straight scores for the Dragons closed it to 23-22 before Sebring halted it andp ut themselves at game point. But Lake Placid would have none of it, scoring the next four to take an astonishi ng 26-24 win. e knew what we had to do to win, it was just the fact o f doing it on the court, junior Abigail Samperi said. It was a mental thing for us. We had it set in our minds we were going to beat Sebring, and we were willing to do whatever it would take. That held true into the c lincher, as again the Dragons found themselves on the brink, with Sebring at game point with a 24-20 lead. L ake Placid scored the next five to get a one-point lead and, after a brief Blue S treak rally extended it a bit, closed it out for a 28-26 wi n. e had a lot of mistakes, but very correctable mistakes, Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness said. But thats what this is for, and isg ood that it was tough competition. This tournament is for the county teams to break each other down, find eacho thers weaknesses so that we can all build from it and g et better for the season. And away we go.

Dick then connected with Steven Roberts for 28 yards to the Titans 9, though a downfield holding call brought the ball back out to the 19. Avon Park then ran a version of the flea flicker as Dick handed the ball off to the running back heading right. The ball was then pitched to Damon Braswell who was running in a reverse. Braswell stopped midfield and threw the ball to Dick who was standing alone in the end zone for a 19-yard touchdown pass. The two point conversion failed on an incomplete pass and Avon Park trailed 18-12. The Avon Park defense forced Tenoroc to punt after three plays on their next two possessions and the offense went back to work. Dick connected with Roberts on back-to-back pass plays, one on a quick inside slant for 24 yards and the second for 30 yards when Roberts out jumped the defender, and then broke away the final 10 yards to score. With the extra point, Avon Park held their first lead of the game 19-18. Avon Park scored on their next possession when Dick ran 58 yards for a touchdown. With the extra point, the lead now stood at 26-18 with 2:30 left in the game. The Avon Park defense ended any Tenoroc hopes of tying the score when Jarville Hart intercepted a Smith pass with just over a minute left in the game. Tenoroc had double the number of plays for the game, but total yardage for both teams was nearly even as Avon Park compiled 263 yards to the Titans 270. Dick ran the ball 11 times for more than 150 yard and scored twice. He was also 5 of 7 for 84 yards passing with a touchdown. He also caught a touchdown pass to account for his four touchdown performance. Roberts had three receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown. e tell our players not to take any one play seriously said Brown. Keep playing and stick to what we coached and no matter what happens weve got to do it again next week. Next week brings the Frostproof Bulldogs to Avon Park for Fridays home opener to the regular season. Continued from 1B AP rally wins Kick Off Classic

For the aspiring cooks and crafters who frequent Pinterest.com,pinning something is one thing. Nailingit is another. By letting users create virtual pinboards,Pinterest has become a popular way to keep track of home decori deas,recipes and craft projects spread across the Internet. But those who go beyond collecting pretty pictures and actually attempt to recreate the crafts often dis-c over its harder than it looks. S uch failures are featured to humorous effect on at least two sites,includingP intester.com and CraftFail.com. As the name i mplies,the former chronicles one womans dogged attempts to replicate recipes, fashion,beauty products and craft ideas she spots onP interest. The latter,which was launched before P interest existed,accepts submissions from anyone who has tried,and failed,atc rafting of any kind. Heather Mann of Salem, O re.,started CraftFail as a place to post her own failed projects away from her craftb log,Dollarstorecrafts.com. From her early posts about handmade soap that resemb led Spam (when you want to wash your hands with w hat appears to be potted meat),the site has attracted hundreds of entries from fellow crafters willing to poke fun at themselves. Pinteresti s now often the inspiration, or culprit,she said. ith the popularity of Pinterest,a lot of new,inexperienced people are trying crafting. They see something o n Pinterest that they like and they want to recreate it, a nd when they do,it doesnt turn out the way they wanted it to,she said. M ann can tell a project is popular on Pinterest by how m any failed versions of it arrive in her inbox. When a project that called for bakingc upcakes in ice cream cones reached its peak,she was getting a submission every o ther week. In May,she posted a round-up of those p esky ice cream cone cupcakes of doom,contrasting Betty Crockers perfectly formed,impeccably frosted cones with a collection ofi mages showing cake batter oozing out of the cones. As on Pintester.com,the not-so-perfect pictures are often labeled with the tagline AILED IT.But unlike M ann,Pintesters Sonja Foust is decidedly un-crafty.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Youve got the idea. Now you need to know how to get on your way. Starting Your Businessis a class that teaches just that. From how to determine feasibility and legal structure to the type of license you will need,this class covers all the essentials that will help you get started. Starting Your Businessis a free seminar presented by the Small Business Development Center at University of South Florida. It is designed for persons thinking of starting a small business or who have started a business and want to make sure they did it correctly. The class will be held on Wednesday at South Florida State College Corporate and Continuing Education Room T24 from 2-4:30 p.m. The seminar will be presented by David Noel,certified business analyst with the SBDC. Seating is limited,so call Noel at 784-7378 to reserve a seat in the seminar or for further information. Not everyi nteraction with the IRS must necessarilyi nduce flop sweat. Case in point:A few yearsa go a friend of m ine decided his income taxes had become sufficiently complicated to merit hir-i ng an accountant. After examining previous tax r eturns,the accountant discovered my friend had claimed the standard deduction for two years when he should have itemizede xpenses. He filed a couple of amended tax returns and v oila the IRS wrote him checks totaling more than $1,200. O f course,not all tax-filing mistakes end on such a h appy note. Sometimes people find out after submitting a return that their employer h ad sent an incorrect W-2 form,or they forgot to report self-employment income,or t hey incorrectly claimed someone as a dependent. A lthough its tempting to let such mistakes slide, chances are the IRS will discover the error eventually, and when they do you couldb e liable for interest and penalties going back to the due date of the original tax return. Worst case:You could even face criminal charges for filing a fraudulent return. H eres a guide to when and how you should file an a mended tax return: If you discover an error on your federal income tax return after having already efiled or mailed it,you may file an amended return using I RS Form 1040X (at www.irs.gov). The following rules apply: Amended returns cannot be e-filed; you must submit a p aper version. Submit a separate Form 1040X for each year's return y ou wish to amend and mail them in separate envelopes. Generally,you must file Form 1040X within three years from the date you filedy our original return or within two years from the date you paid the tax,whichever is later. If your amended return i nvolves changes to another schedule or form,you must a ttach a revised version of that schedule or form. If you're filing to claim an additional tax refund on a recently filed return,wait until you've received the original refund before filingF orm 1040X. Youre allowed to cash the original check while waiting for any additional refund. On the other hand,if your amended return will result in you owing addition-a l tax,file it right away to limit interest and penalty c harges that might accrue. The normal processing time for a Form 1040X is e ight to 12 weeks. You neednt file an amended return because of simple math errors the IRS will automatically make cor-r ections and bill you for any additional tax required (or increase your refund). Nor must you file a 1040X if you forgot to attached tax formso r schedules to your return. The IRS will send a request i f it needs them. However,you should file a n amended return if you: Received additional or amended tax forms or statements from employers, banks or investment brokersa fter you filed your return (e.g.,W-2 or 1099 forms). Forgot to report income. Overlooked tax deduct ions or credits you could have claimed. Claimed deductions or c redits for which you werent eligible. Didnt claim a dependent you were entitled to,or claimed someone you s houldnt have. Chose the wrong filing status. One last tip:If youre going to the trouble of filinga n amended tax return for a specific reason,review the entire original return carefully for any other deductions,credits or exemptionsy ou might have missed the first time.

Tom Schwankweiler, Pastor. Phone 453-6052.PLACESTOWORSHIP When Spc. Austin Monk deployed to Iraq in August 2009,t he soldiers wife expected the worst. When your loved one deploys to Iraq, you expect them to come home injured ... (physically ore motionally) wounded, or you expect them to come back dead, Laura Monk told The Unknown Soldiers. She never thought her 20-yearo ld husbands combat deployment would end with a shocking diagnosis of leukemia. ou never expect them to come back with cancer, she said. L aura met Austin on an early morning bus ride from her native Philadelphia to New York City inD ecember 2007. After initially being too nervous to talk to the cute soldier from Texas as theb us made the short trip up Interstate 95, they struck up a conv ersation. Everything else that wound up happening in our lives showed wew ere meant to meet, Laura said. Austin and Laura got married in M arch 2009, shortly after the soldier returned from Korea. It was awesome because we got to build our relationship through conversations, learn about eacho ther over the phone and have an emotional connection, Laura said. We just fell in love. Less than five months after their wedding, Spc. Monk deployed to Iraqs Al Anbar Province with an 82nd Airborne Division personals ecurity detachment. This is what I signed up to do, Austin said to his wife. Austin firstc omplained about a terrible headache during one of the couples Skype conversations. Then,o n Halloween 2009, Austin wrote Laura a MySpace message saying h e had a 104-degree fever. t worry about me, Austin added. A few weeks later, fellow soldiers found Austin lying on the f loor of his barracks. The ordeal that followed, which took the soldier from hospitals in Iraq to Germany, left Laura feeling helpless as she agonized over her hus-b ands condition from thousands of miles away. They initially thought he had mono or tuberculosis and that the headache could have been from hisw isdom teeth, Austins wife said. When Laura was informed her husband was suffering from leukemia, all she wanted was to be by his side. Ill be there soon, she said. After the Army flew Laura to Germany, she would rarely be separated from Austin again, except for one special week. He told me to go to Paris, Laura said. Even though he was stuck in the hospital, he wanted to make it enjoyable for me. Austin and Laura eventually e nded up at a top cancer hospital in Houston. With Austins cancer in remission after a May 2011 bonem arrow transplant, the Monks were preparing to head home to North Carolina, where the soldier wass tationed, with a renewed sense of optimism. We thought we were good, Laura said. It was normalcy ... normalcy for us. A ustin collapsed just hours before the couples flight. Afew h ours later, the soldier learned his cancer had returned. That was the last time he was ever outside a hospital, Laura said. T he Monks eventually returned to North Carolina, where Austin, 2 2, would spent his last days in a h ospice facility. In the early morning hours of Oct. 5, 2011, Laura, w ho met the love of her life by chance on a bus, told her husband it was time for his next trip. s okay for you to go, she whispered in Austins ear. I lovey ou. E ven after three years of pain, Laura feels deeply inspired by the c ourage displayed by her husband both as an American soldier and young cancer patient. I want him to be remembered as the smiling Austin, the guy who loved the Dallas Cowboys, the guy t hat no matter what the conseq uences, signed up and joined the A rmy, she said. S pc. Austin Monk will always b e with his wife. And due to the wonders of medical technology, Laura s till hopes to bear his children. He would have been a great d ad, she said. But hell be look ing down on us. L aura Monk expected the worst w hen her husband went to Iraq. But even after the unimaginableo rdeal that followed, her outlook h as changed for the better. I have to make the best of it b ecause its all Ive got, she said To find out more about Tom Sileo or to read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit t he Creators Syndicate website at www.creators.com. Soldiers wife learns to deal with the unexpected Laura Monk and Spc. Austin Monk celebrate their wedding in March 2 009. Spc. Monk died of leukemia o n Oct. 5, 2011, after serving part of a combat deployment to Iraq. P hoto courtesy of Laura Monk.

C M Y K Upon theira rrival, early settlers learned much fromt he natives that resided in Florida. Explorerst raveled through rivers, swamps and streams and would often come uponw ildlife that they knew nothing about. The Native Americans knew the land ando ften assisted the visitors on their quest. One of the creatures the n atives warned the settlers about was the water mocc asin. It is said that the natives gave the water moccasin its original nameb ecause of its silent movement through the water and i ts moccasin-coloredskin. To assist the newcomers,legend has it that they began to call these snakescottonmouths for easier identifica-t ion because of the white cotton-like substance the creat ure exhibits when it is threatened. The scientific name for the s nake is Agkistrodon piscivorus and is broken down f rom the Greek words ancistro meaning hooked, odon meaning tooth,piscis m eaning fish and voro means to eat. Therefore,the actual meaning of its name is hooked tooth fish eater, which is an accurate descrip-t ion of the creature. The hooked teethare actually the venom injecting fangs that are somewhat curved. As far as diet,thes nake is an opportunistic feeder and will munch on f ish,frogs and most any warm or cold blooded crea-t ure it can catch. Water moccasins are the worlds only semiaquatic viper. These snakes are very strong swimmers and areg enerally found in slow-moving water such as lakes, streams,swamps and marshes. However,they can and do enter the sea and have beenk nown to colonize on islands off the coasts. Often confused with brown water snakes,the moccasin has a triangular shaped broad head which is quite distinct from the neck. It has a blunt snout and elliptical cat-eye pupils and a dark facial line which extends through the eye. Colors range from dark b rown,grey and black. They are marked with dark cross b ands that extend down the back. The bands will usually fade with age and the juve-n iles are much brighter in color and have a bright yell ow tail. The underside of the creature is lighter,generally yellowish white. The moccasin has a distinctive cottontexturedc overing on the inside of its mouth. When startled or t hreatened it will open its jaws exposing the cotton mouth.These heavily bodiedc reatures grow to be 2 1/2 to 5 feet long. A nother way to tell the difference from the non-venomous water snakes and the c ottonmouth is by their defense mechanisms. Moccasins will vibrate their tails against leaves,water or other objects when provokedo r frightened,imitating the sound of the rattlesnake. Most water snakes will slither away and flee an area when approached. The moc-c asin will sometimes stand its ground and give warnings s uch as hissing,tail rattling, opening its mouth,flatteningi ts body,emitting a musky smell,and remaining in position until the threat is gone. However,even though t hese snakes have a reputation as being nasty and badtempered,their aggressiveness has been greatly exaggerated. In fact,during labo-r atory testing,wild specimens were approached by humans and 23 of 45,or 51 percent,tried to escape; 28 of 36 or 78 percent,opted to use defensive tactics. Only when the snakes were picked up bya mechanical hand,did they choose to bite. Mating rituals for these creatures take place in the spring. The male will fighto ther males for the right to mate with a female. The y oung are born live. The female gives birth to at least 16,which are born withv enom intact. These tiny serpents are designed to take c are of themselves the moment they arrive in the wild. W ater moccasins are active day and night. Like all reptiles,they are cold-blooded and like to warm up on sunny days. They can be seen coiledu p or stretched out on land during hot summer days. Otherwise,they are usually swimming or crawling in or near the water. A lthough their reputation is based on mostly myth, water moccasins do have a very serious bite. Their venom is more toxic thanm ost snakes and will destroy tissue and blood cells. The venom is hemotoxic and itw orks by preventing the bodys blood supply from coagulating,which mayc ause severe blood loss in the victim. T he bite is extremely painful and medical treatment is required as soon as possi-b le. Antivenoms are available at most hospitals and death f rom snakebites in this day and age is very rare. Most bites from venomous s nakes turn out to be dry bites,which is when the snake bites but doesnt inject any venom. Snakes dont want to waste their venom,w hich they rely on for capturing prey. However,all snake bites should be taken seriously and medical attention should be sought. A ccording to research from the University of Florida, The chances of dying from a venomous snakebite in the United States is nearly zero,b ecause we have available, high-quality medical care in the U.S. Fewer than one in3 7,500 people are bitten by venomous snakes in the U.S. each year (7-8,000 bites per year),and only one in 50 million people will die froms nakebite (5-6 fatalities per year). Did you know that you are nine times more likely to die from being struck by lightning than to die of ven-o mous snakebite?

Solution on page 10B I had the most wonderful driving teacher in high school. He taught his s tudents lovingly and practically. Adjust the seat, mirrors and seat belt. T o this day,I automatically do those things. Its like Im glancing in the rearview mirror to say thanks to my instructor. I f my seat and mirrors arent correctly positioned f or me,my control of the vehicle and perspective of everything around me willb e skewed (not to mention the endangerment to m yself and others without my seat belt). Entering real traffic,my instructor reminded me to check my mirrors,espe-c ially the rearview mirror. That was difficult as I was a fraid to take my eyes off the road ahead. But I soon learned the i mportance of knowing what the traffic flow was l ike behind and alongside me when he instructed me to take the next exit. Fearm et faith as I employed my new skills to follow his directions. W ith just a glance backwards and alongside,I c ould change lanes and move forward confidently. I like thinking of my life that way,too. When I glance in the r earview mirror on my lifes journey,I recognize Gods presence behind me. No matter what path I was traveling,God was there giving me direction,guida nce and confidence whether on the right path or off the beaten track. T he purpose of the rearview mirror in a car and in life isnt to keep us looking back-w ards,but to give us perspective of what is going on around us so we can move forward. When we acknowledge Gods presence witht hanksgiving in our rearview mirror of memor ies,we become enthusiastic and are propelled forward. But if we put the caro f our lives in reverse and try to linger there,well n ever move ahead (and have any number of crashes by going backwards instead of forward on the road of life!). T here may be a variety of reasons why we would w ant to linger in the past, but by doing so,we will miss the present and thef uture God has promised us in Jeremiah 29:11. I love how Proverbs 3:56,NKJV,help us get perspective on trust in thep ast,present and future. It says,rust in the Lord with all your heart,and l ean not on your own understanding; in all your w ays acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Glance back and see how far God has broughty ou and then move forward in thanksgiving and faith. Selah J an Merop is a News-Sun correspondent Glance back, then move forward in faith P ause And C onsider Jan Merop Balance and harmony reign for you this week, Aries Dear Abby: I have been dating Larryfor a littleo ver a year. During this time he has been in and out of work. Anytime we go anywhere or do anything, he never offers to pay. Even if he has money in his pocket,hell look the other way when a check arrives. Other times,he insists on Dutch treat. Larry says we were raised differently. I say hes cheap. When the holidays come around,I never receive a gift or a card. I am a hardworking woman who is currently holding down two full-time jobs. I dont see why Larry feels he is entitled. Am I out of line for thinking a man should treata woman? I just dont think Larry is morally correct. Paying Dearly in Naples Dear Paying Dearly: I agree that you and Larry were raised differently. I also agree that hes cheap. However,the idea that a man should ALWAYS treata woman is outdated. You signed yourself aying Dearly.The question is,are you getting what youre paying for and is it enough for you? If the answer is no,then scratch Larry. Dear Abby: My wife and I were sorting through some old things of mine and came across a wallet containing some pictures of my old high school girlfriend. Normally,I wouldnt think twice about tossing them,but in this case,she was someone I had stayed very close with (platonically) until her untimely death several years ago. What is the protocol for throwing away things like this,when its someone you were close to who is now deceased? Im sure her parents wouldnt want them. It feels disrespectful to toss them in the trash,but at the same time I dont really feel I need to keep them. My wife doesnt care either way if I keep them or not. To Keep Or Not To Keep Dear ToKeep: Offer the pictures to your former girlfriends family because they might surprise you and consider them treasures. However,if there not interested and you cant bring yourself to put them in the trash,put them in the box in which you found them and let your family deal with them after youre gone. Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married for 10 years,together for 15. When we met,he was in a band and we did a lot of socializing,drinking,partying,etc. Over the years and two children later,I enjoy these activities less as the demands of parenting and full-time careers take top priority. My husband frequently makes the com-m ent,ou USED to be fun.I find it incredibly hurtful and have told him so,but he continues to repeat it. Sometimes Im tempted to lash out and say,Then go find yourself someone who is! Is there any other way I can address this? Party-Poopein New York Dear Party-Pooper: Yes. The next time your husband says,ou used to be fun,rather than become defensive,ask him to explain what he means. What EXACTLY does he miss? The freedom? Not having the responsibilities of a full-time career and two children? The drinking? If he misses the carefree woman you used to be,finda sitter and schedule some regular adult time together. If its something more than that,you may need a marriage counselor. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Sunday, August 26, 2012 Political conventions are not all campaign posters and confetti. With both parties already embroiled in a heated presidential contest, we take a look at the history,procedures and purpose of the Democratic and Republican conventions.When voters cast their ballots in a primary election,they arent actually choosing a presidential candidate. Instead,the process determines delegates representatives who w ill attend each partys national convention to officially select the candidate. The trip to becoming one of thousands of voting deleg ates at either political convention is a lengthy one,and can be quite different depending on the state and the party. s not the same everywhere,said U.S. Rep. David Loebsack,formerly a poli tics professor at Cornell College in Mount Vernon,Iowa,and now an Iowa congressman. It can be a little complicated.Primaries vs.caucusesFor the Democrats,states hold either a primary election in which voters cast ballots for delegates,a caucus in which voters meet in each district,or both,in the cases of Virginia and Texas. Republicans,meanwhile,use the same methods,but in many states,voters simply decide on the presidential candidate and essentially vote in that candidates selection of delegates. The obvious difference is the caucus is more limited,said Joseph F. Zimmerman, professor of political science at Rockefeller C ollege,University at Albany,N.Y. Someone has to organize a local caucus and invite people,and they may not invite everyone. ... A direct primary is state-certified,so a larger percentage of people participate.Unpledged vs. pledged delegates There are two types of delegates who attend the convention,pledged and u npledged. Pledged delegates announce who they support,pledging their vote to a candidate. Unpledged delegates,who are generally party leaders,do not have to support anyone and can change their votes. B ut technically,Zimmerman said,any of the delegates could change their vote.C asting the ballots All in all,nearly 6,000 Democratic delegates and 2,286 Republican delegates will officially name the party nominees,even though the conclusions are already foregone.20,500Seating available at the Tampa Bay Times Forum200,000Pounds of l ighting, cables and s peakers used at the F orum1887Year Tampa was incorporated as a city21Tampas ranking among American metropolitan areas2,286Expected d elegates2,125Expected a lternate delegates15,000E xpected media members7,500V olunteers w orking conventionrelated activities3Number of times Florida has hosted the GOP convention400Motor coaches charted to transport del-e gates16,000Hotel rooms h ousing delegates, media and convention g uests Republican C onventionWhere: Tampa W hen: Aug.27-30 M ain venue: Tampa B ay Times Forum Website: www.gop convention2012.comMCCL ATCHY-TR IBUNEIN FORMATIONSE RVICES The Anti-Masonic Party held the first national convention in Baltimore in 1831. At the 1864 convention,Republicans renamed their organization the Union Party in an effort to garner support for the North during the Civil War. In 1872,the Equal Rights Party nominated the first female presidential candidate,Victoria Claflin Woodhull. Her running mate was black leader Fredrick Douglass. The 1940 Republican convention was the first political convention to be televised. Chicago has hosted a record 25 Democratic and Republican conventions. For the Democrats:T his years convention is being touted as the most open and accessible in history.Focus is on grassroots involvement and enlisting people who want to put their shoulder to the wheel and change the country for the better. The week kicks off with CarolinaFest,a family friendly Labor Day celebration honoring the American worker. The free festival offers family activities,live music,food and culture. President Barack Obama will accept the nomination on Day 4 in the Bank of A merica Stadium where the public has been invited to attend. A lso,for the first time in history,the convention has not accepting cash from corporations,lobbyists or PACs. Funding was raised grass-roots style through social media, email campaigns and an online merchandise store,according to the host committee.For the Republicans:T he Tampa event is the 40th Republican National Convention. It is being billed as the Convention Without Walls,a technology effort combining websites,social media,live chats,mobile apps,streaming video and webcasting. The outreach includes Facebook and Twitter,as well as Pinterest,Instagram and other sites. The convention stage also follows the technological innovations with 13 LED panels creating a large-scale backdrop with video capabilities. T his years convention themes include e Can Do Better,e Built Itand We Can Change It. This convention will present our vision for a brighter,better future and it will lay out an optimistic,achievable plan to make it happen,said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. Do you know what a plankis? Whats a superdelegate (and does she get to wear a cape)? Here are some terms you might hear during the convention:Credentials committee:A body that decides which delegates should be allowed into the convention if a dispute arises between factions of delegates who support different candidates. Delegates:A group of party members who officially vote for the presidential nominee. Each state and territory is allotted a certain number of delegates based on its population.Federal Election Commission:The organization gives public funds to both partiespresidential campaigns following the partiesconventions. The commission prohibits the use of privately raised money between a partys convention and the November election.Keynote speech:One of the major events of the convention; it is given on the conventions first day and is usually delivered by a party luminary.N omination:Given to a partys presidential and vice presidential candidates who receive the most delegate votes. The nomination process has become a formality with the advent of primaries,which predetermine how many votes a candidate will receive at the convention. Platform:A statement that outlines a partys and its candidates stance on a variety of issues. A plankrefers to a specific issue category in the platform.Rules committee:Group that determines the guidelines for the convention. Superdelegates:A group of elected officials and party members that comprises about one-sixth of the Democratic delegates and is free to vote for any candidate at the convention. This group is also known as unpledgeddelegates. 1860:In an upset victory,dark horse candidate Abraham Lincoln,a senator from Illinois,wins the Republican nomination at the Chicago convention. 1896:William Jennings Bryan,the Democratic presidential nominee,rouses convention attendees with his Cross of Goldspeech,which calls on the government to stop using the gold standard,a policy he believed caused inflation and made it harder for farmers to repay loans. 1912:At the Republican convention, President William Taft and former President Theodore Roosevelt tussle for their partys nomination,and the incumbent barely inches out a victory over the roughrider. 1968:Thousands of protesters,enraged by the Vietnam War and assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.,descend on the Democratic convention in Chicago. The police respond forcefully, creating several days of riots that result in 500 arrests and more than 200 injuries. 1992:Texas Gov.Ann Richards criticizes then-President George H. W. Bush at the Democratic convention with the line, Poor old George. He cant help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.SOURCES:WWW.DEMCONVENTION.COM, WWW.GOPCON VENTION2008.COM, CONGRESSIONAL QUARTERLY,THE GREEN PAPERS, REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE In 2004,100,000 biodegradable balloons were inflated by 200 young people in only six hours for the Republican convention. The balloons were dropped from 50 nets hung 75 feet above the floor of Madison Square Garden. In 2004,1,000 pounds of red,white and blue paper confetti and at least 100,000 red, white and blue,biodegradable balloons dropped on a crowd of more than 20,000 guests at the Democratic convention in Boston.

Assistant County Engineer Elius Nortelus is the project manager.The basic plan is to widen the roads to create adequate turn space and reduce delays at the intersection. The project consists of the construction of left-turn and right-turn lanes and the widening of approximately 1,100 feet of Hammock Road and approximately 500 feet of Lakewood Road, Nortelus said. The Highlands County Board of County Commissioners approved the project and the construction contract with Excavation Point Inc. The project will cost $283,322,according to Nortelus.

Unfortunately most parents dont have current photos or video available o na moments notice. If fingerprints or DNA were needed, the likelihood that any parents would have this is even less. The Florida Masonic Child Identification Program has been founded to provide this service and now,in p artnership with the Champion for Children Foundation of Highlands County,local lodges are able to provide this program to Highlands County famil ies. In fact Highlands County Program chairman Ross Canright says that 3,200 c hildren in Highlands County have already taken advantage of this service. The Florida Masonic Child I dentification Program is provided free o f charge to the public. All of the data generated during the program is given to the childs family. No data is retained by the Masonic lodges. The program kit includes four still photos,a brief video interview,fingerprints,a sample of DNA and two ID c ards containing information about the c hild,a thumbprint and parent contact information. Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton fully supports this program saying,Anything we can do to increase the chances of finding a lost child,we are going to support 100 percent. Canright said the Highlands County Masonic Lodges are looking for events during which to offer this free program. Organizations wishing to offer this service simply need to get in touch with their local Masonic Lodge,or call Canright at 452-0346.

She contacted the newspaper Friday to clarify what had been missed. Howerton is disappointed that the school district can not help teachers with expenses when they go for higher certifications that enhance our students and classrooms. I know myself,along with Andy Tuck and Ned Hancock and even back when Wendy Renfro was on the board,we stopped getting reimbursements for travel and hotel expenses from the school board budget. We cover that ourselves ... and have been doing that for years. Some district personnel still receive travel expenses, Howerton said. She wants the board,along with Superintendent of Schools Wally Cox,to look again at travel in the budget as a whole to make sure all individuals,at all levels of district administration,cover their own travel expenses.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Highlands County has been chosen to receive $43,073 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county. The selection is made by the national board that is chaired by the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities,USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; The Salvation Army; The Jewish Federations of North America,The Salvation Army; and,United Way Worldwide. The local board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in highneed areas around the count ry. A local board,made up of local government officials, clergy,emergency service providers,homeless representatives,and United Way will determine how the funds awarded to Highlands County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The local board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds available under this phase of the program. Under the terms of the grant from the national board,local agencies chosen to receive funds must:1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of government,2) be eligible to receive federal funds,3) have an accounting system,4) practice non-discrimination,5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs,and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization,they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Highlands County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously with four local recipient organizations participating.

Lieutenants Darin Hood, Kenny Johnson and Paula Weeks successfully graduated from the program and w ere presented with their certifications in a ceremony last week in Bartow. Previous graduates of the program from the Highlands County Sheriffs Office include Sheriff Susan Benton,Business Administrator Lisa Burley, Captain Paul Blackman and Detention Deputy David Sweet. According to the Florida Center for Public Management, the Certified Public Manager program is a nationally-recognized program for training and developing public managers and supervisors. It is currently offered in 38 states and by the federal government. Primary goals of the program are to professionalize public management and improve organizational efficiency and effectiveness. In Florida there are more than 4,000 graduates of the program from over 100 agencies. The program consists of eight levels,each of which includes classroom instruction,homework assignments and exams. The first part of the program concentrates on leadership management and people skills,the second part focuses on understanding complex organizations and the formation of policies. The program usually takes a two-year commitment to complete. Recently Florida Governor Rick Scott issued a proclamation making the week of Aug. 12-18 as Certified Public Manager Recognition Week. By this proclamation Scott encouraged all Floridians to recognize our certified public managers for their commitment to enhancing the quality and availability of government services.A copy of the proclamation is available at www.fcpm.fsu.edu/News.cf m?idsNews=8.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Facing mandates to find more detailed and objective ways of evaluating teachers that are based on student progress and classroom observation,Highlands County joined a group of other school districts to develop a new system early. This response makes the school district one of the leaders in creating a new process,and has enabled it to share in Race ToThe Top federal funding and a Bill and Melinda Gates grant. The new evaluation system is complicated; its components mandated by the state. Fifty percent of a teachers score is based on statistical formulas derived from student FCAT scores and half on classroom observation. For teachers whose students or subject matter are not covered by the FCAT,student progress is even harder to calculate. Asa result there is a great deal of confusion and fear. Derrel Bryan appeared before the school board Tuesday to introduce members of the Teacher Communication Corps,and explain what they do. Im going to brag on em a lot tonight,Bryan told the school board, referring to the eight Corps members who remained active throughout the year answering teachersquestions and correcting misconceptions. In order to be chosen the individuals have to stay current with the process,be able to present ideas clearly and comfortable fielding questions. Their purpose is to address questions and concerns,share success stories and promote openness,Bryan said. By opening doors of information at every school the individuals built a better climate and clarify issues. When rumors fly,no one benefits,Bryan added. Corps members do not formally address groups. Instead they met informally one-onone with teachers in need of information. If the Corps member did not know an answer,Bryan said,they knew where the information could be found. Corps members did not just explain rules and process,they listened to the teachers and provided feed back to district administrators too. Mary Pinson,of Lake Placid Middle School and a member of the Corps,said some teachers had become paranoid because of the lack of accurate information. She took on the extra work,she said, after one teacher told her that the district was looking to fire everyone and start over fresh,and I knew that wasnt true. Pinsons colleagues are Jani Antrim, P atricia Carter,Cheryl Humphrey, Stephanie Moreo,Steve Picklesimer,Jon Spencer,and Sherryl Wolfe.

County gets emergency food and shelter funds News-Sun staffSEBRING A Sebring m an is in jail charged with an armed robbery that led to gunfire being exchanged between the suspect and one of his victims on Aug. 18. Cameron DVaughnte Ancrum,20,was booked Thursday for attempted murder,shooting a firearm in public,improper exhibition o fa firearm and two counts of armed robbery. According to arrest reports,two men said they were standing in front of C lub Sensation at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Lemon A venue at around 11 p.m. on Aug. 18 when one of the men said that someone grabbed the gold chain from around his neck. The first victim said he turned around and saw a man, whom he later identified as Ancrum,pointing a gun at his face. He was robbed of more than $7,800 worth of jewelry. The second victim said another man,who was not identified in the report, shoved a gun in his face and demanded his money and jewelry. He said he took off his necklace and bracelets and was about to reach into his pocket,where he was carrying a .38-caliber revolver, when the suspect pushed him against the wall and took the gun. The second man said he was robbed of $3,350 worth of items including jewelry and the $50 gun before a shot was fired,allegedly by Ancrum,and the second victim ran inside the club. When the suspects fled,the f irst victim reportedly ran to his truck,grabbed a gun and gave chase. He followed the suspects to an alley between Shirley and Harris Streets when he said one of the suspects,reportedly Ancrum, shot at him two or three times. The victim said he returned fire,shooting three to five times. Nobody was injured in the exchange of gunfire,according to the report. Ancrum was nearly arrested on Wednesday at near home on Citrus Avenue,but managed to flee on foot. He was arrested Thursday night in Avon Park. The first victim has not been charged for his role in the gunfight.Teens charged with violent robberyTwo teenagers were arrested Thursday,charged with the July robbery of a man. Sherman Daniel Hawthorne,18,and Demitri Davon Moore,17,both of Lake Placid,were charged with aggravated battery and robbery. Investigators say the victim was walking on Highlands Boulevard in Lake Placid on July 24 when he was jumped from behind. The victim was hit on the head with an unknown object and robbed of his wallet. The wound on the victims head required six staples to close and will leave a permanent scar,the arrest report said. The suspects were reportedly identified because two people heard them talking about the crime. Man charged for armed robbery that led to gunfight GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE

For some,the artifact became a symbol of hope. People wrote messages on it. Religious services were held in its shadow.There are those who have a lot of emotional investment in it and what it stands for. Not everyone feels that w ay.To some,the cross is an offensive symbol. And when plans were made to include the item in the National September 11 Museum,the group called American Atheists chose to express that displeasure with a lawsuit,filed last year. According to an article I read on www.washingtonpost.com,the lawsuit contends that having the cross in the museum is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion,given the fact the museum is on public property. Not only that,but including it in the museum would result in injury,both emotional and physical (as in suffering extreme anxiety) to atheists who also lost loved ones in the tragedy. A nytimes.com blog recently reported that the museum filed in court to have the lawsuit dismissed, citing the fact that it is a private non-profit agency and thus exempt from the Constitutions establishment clause. Moreover, they argued,the cross was not being displayed as a religious symbol,but as a relic from the 9/11 attacks. The museum has been experiencing other problems besides this lawsuit and no one seems to know when it will open. Its kind of sad when you think about it the museum is something we can all get behind but instead we squabble. The president of American Atheists,David Silverman,suggested that if the cross wasnt removed perhaps all religions should be allowed to place a symbol of equal size and stature to the large cross, including atheists. If workers had found such structures in the rubble,I could see that. If somehow a bunch of beams had formed a Star of David,Id have no problems including that in the museum. If they had formed some sort of symbol that atheists revered (though I dont know what that would be) and the museum wanted to include the relic,hey,its part of the history. Include it. But such things werent found. The cross that was found is part of the lore that is 9/11. Its not being separated from the rest of the museum; its supposed to be part of a display of a thousand other things that were a part of that awful time. Is that such a terrible thing? As Susan Jacoby,an atheist,points out,the museum may well include examples of impromptu memorials that appeared at Ground Zero and around Manhattan. They included religious symbols,such as Stars of David and small statues of Buddha. She logically asks if these too must be barred from the museum. The museum is supposed to tell the story of 9/11. Like it or not,that story includes some religion. Many turned to their faiths in the days that followed. The metal cross was a source of comfort for some who badly needed comforting in those long,sad days following the event. Im sorry that some find that offensive. But as I keep pointing out,the First Amendment does not mean you are free from being offended. The history is what it is. And like it or not,a battered metal cross is a part of that history. Lets not hide the fact for fear that someone will be offended. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Formerly a lawyer and then the president of the Midwestern Ice Cream Company,Vollmer now dedicates himself to educational reform. Formerly a c ritic of public schools,he has become a major advocate for them. His main point,with which the NewsSun agrees,is that we used to ask our schools to help teach children what they need to know to succeed. N ow,however,we ask schools to raise our kids. Consider the history as Vollmer lays it out in the video. Formal education in the United States b egan in the mid-17th century. Created for white boys,there were only three s ubjects reading,writing and arithmetic. By the 18th century,the subject matter had been expanded to include civics, history,science and geography. There things stood for approximately 150 years. By 1900,however,influenced by the industrial revolution and waves of immigration,schools were used to select a nd sort thinkers from the doers.Social concerns were reflected in new programs teaching about health and nutrition and providing immunizations. Between 1910 and 1930,Vollmer says,there was another expansion. Schools now had physical education programs and team sports and taught practical arts,like home economics and vocational education. In the 1940s,Vollmer says,half-day kindergarten was introduced,as was b usiness education,speech and drama. School-prepared lunches began at this time. By the 1950s,math and science classes were expanded,as well as art,music and foreign languages. Drivers education and sexual education became part of the curriculum,too. In the 1960s,schools added consumer and adult education. Advanced placement began as did Head Start and Title I, which helped increase education for low-income familes In the 1970s,parenting classes,drug and alcohol education,special education,environmental education,Black history and womens studies were introduced and Title IX,which made gender discrimination illegal and is most noted for its effect on sports,became law. To ensure better learning,schools started to serve breakfast in addition to lunch. By the 1980s,kindergarten was a fullday program,non-English speakers went to special language classes (ESOL),computer education was added and after-school programs began. Schools were mandated to monitor for child abuse a teacher can be arrested for ignoring the clues and promoting teen pregnancy awareness. The 1990s saw conflict resolution classes,distance learning and at-risk and drop-out prevention. T oday schools are at the forefront in the effort to prevent bullying and taking a lead in the fight against childhood obesity. Recently they were ordered to make the leap from print to electronic textbooks. Keep in mind,this is not a complete list of a schools responsibilities. We strongly agree with Vollmer when he says no generation of teachers and administrators in history has had to fill this mandate,and each year the pressure grows. We must recognize our common interests,and do our part to help our schools create the graduates and citizens we need. Our schools cannot do it alone. Amen. Schools cant do it alone anymore At Tuesdays school board meeting, Superintendent Wally Cox showed a video created by Jamie Vollmer,an advocate for public schools. Mud bog would destroy the nothingEditor: As a neighbor of the proposed Swamp Hammock mud bog,I appreciated last weeks invitation to the open house that was organized to showcase the plans of the developers. The property is beautiful; it is truly Florida land that is unique and is in danger of vanishing. I understand that the developers are hoping to come to an understanding with the existing neighbors; however, the open house did not present a true picture of what to expect. There werent thousands of vehicles on the road or trying to enter the property. There werent hundreds of ATVs and/or monster trucks traveling through the area. There werent hundreds or thousands of people carrying alcohol on the property. The alcohol vendors werent set up on the property selling alcohol. There wasnt a sniper weapon range operating. There also wasnt an explanation of how the developers planned to justify the dangerous combination of the above and a narrow two-lane country road with its 90-degree turns and many curves. Our neighborhood is very unique. There are times when the air is still enough that with a gentle breeze in the right direction,I can hear the chain rattle on my front gate a quarter of a mile away. Other times,the night sounds of frogs and cicadas are deafening. At times there are hundreds of sand hill cranes nesting in the surrounding wetlands. I seriously question how this noisy environment will impact their home and other wildlife in the area. Advocates of the impending recreationalarea say,Good location, theres nothing out there.The nothingwould be destroyed. A place for families and local organizations to pack up their potato salad and baked beans and whatever beverage they enjoy to have good clean fun together is a wonderful idea,but the present plan for Swamp Hammock is out of control. I have strong ties and a great love our community. I taught school here for 30 years before retiring; my husband Steve Skipper taught agriculture at SHS. I cant possibly repay this community for the support it has given my family over years,especially when Steve had a lung transplant. I dont want to offend anyone,but my back is up against the wall. I cant watch a part of Florida and the rural ranching lifestyle that settled Highlands County be threatened without speaking out. Beth Skipper Lake PlacidOne payer system is needed hereEditor: Halliburton Dick Cheneys company that got a no bid contract for the Iraq War and fleeced billions of tax dollars from the American people and the Republican party that allowed it to happen. Millions of American veterans claims are being blocked by that same Republican party,just as they blocked the bonus money due World War I veterans under the Hoover administration. Seven hundred and forty World War II veterans are dying each and everyday from asbestos exposure and their claims being denied. Halliburton and the lying Republican party,with the help of the senator from Utah,Orin Hatch and Vice President Dick Cheney,blocked in Congress,not only veteransclaims but civilians claims in the millions. They claimed that the large corporations,like Halliburton Vice President Dick Cheneys company,would set up funds to take care of asbestos claims. The funds are not being paid out as promised to those who have been exposed to asbestos and are dying in large numbers. The American veteran of World War II is being again shafted as they were under the Republican Hoover administration in 1929. The Veterans of Foreign Wars and all veteran organizations should raise hell with the American Republican Congress that allowed this fund to be set up and are now blocking the pay out of these funds to the veterans of World War II. The fund was only a ploy to beat the veterans of World War II claims who are dying at the rate of 740 a day due to exposure to asbestos. We,the American taxpayers,are indirectly paying for the healthcare of the world,yet the Republican Congress are allowing millions of Americans to die needlessly,each and every day for the lack of healthcare. We,the United States Bank,rank 37th in the world on healthcare. We need a one payersystem like we help pay for the rest of the world. Billie E.

OBITUARY By MARCIA DUNN AP Aerospace WriterCAPE CANAVERAL NASAs effort to launch a pair of satellites to Earths radiation belts has been delayed until late next week because of Tropical Storm Isaac. The countdown was halted at the four-minute mark in the wee hours of Saturday for the second time in as many days. Thunderstorms prevented the unmanned rocket from blasting off with NASAs Radiation Belt Storm Probes. On Friday,a tracking beacon on the rocket held up the flight. NASA initially said it would try again Sunday. But with Isaac bearing toward Florida,launch managers decided to move the Atlas V rocket back into its hangar and sit tight until the storm passed. Theyre now aiming for a Thursday launch. The twin satellites are designed to study Earths harsh radiation belts. Scientists say the two-year, $686 million mission will improve space forecasting; the goal is to better guard against solar storms. Spacecraft can be damaged,and astronauts hurt, from severe solar outbursts. Life here on the planet also can be disrupted.

Bishop Park in Lake Placid is 16 years old. A combination of low water levels and heavy rains has deteriorated portions of the seawall. Crews from the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department have been working diligently to repair the damage. Their goal is to have the seawall stabilized and safe for the upcoming Labor Day holiday. Holes located behind the seawall area have been forming, caving in the earth. The displaced soil and sand has been going through the seawall and causing even more damage. The crew dug out the earth behind the wall and is repairing all the rotten wood and replacing the fabric cloth between the wood and the earth. Once these repairs are complete, the sand will be replaced and the project will be done.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in city council chambers at 123 E. Pine St. The proposed fee schedule sets a rate of $165 per residential dwelling. Non-residential buildings are divided into categories b ased on square footage. Warehouse and industrial building fees run from $50 for structures of 1,999 square feet or less to $2,489 for those of more than 50,000 square feet. Proposed assessment fees for commercial buildings range from $133 to $6,652 and for institutional buildings from $179 to $8,943. Nursing homes,because of the high volume of emergency calls,will pay the highest proposed assessments from $1,299 to $64,966. The assessments are collected on the 2012 ad valorem tax bill that is mailed out in November. Failure to pay the assessments will cause a tax certificate to be issued against the property,which could lead to a loss of title. Copies of the fire rescue assessment ordinance,the initial assessment resolution,the final assessment resolution,the preliminary rate resolution for fiscal year 2012-13,and the updated assessment roll are available for inspection at City Hall,110 E. Main St. Fire rescue assessment rates on agenda in Avon Park

C M Y K By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Ryan Dick scored three touchdowns and passed for another as Avon Park came back from a 12-point, fourthquarter deficit beat visiting T enoroc, 26-18. Tenoroc scored the first two times they had the ball, the first on their opening drive as they moved the ball at will against the Avon Park defense. The drive covered 60 yards on eight plays, culminating in a 7-yard touchdown run for a 6-0 lead. The second time Titans capitalized on a short field when they recovered a Dick fumble and returned it to the Red Devils 27. Four plays later quarterback Victor Smith connected with Darius Frasier on a 12-yard touchdown pass for a 12-0 lead. Despite being behind, Avon Park head coach Lee Brown did not seem to be concerned. We got to play 48 minutes, he said. We knew that there would be some challenges early on. On Avon Parks next possession, Dick scored his first touchdown on the second play with a 70-yard run. The extra point was missed and Avon Park trailed 12-6 with 4:30 left in the first quarter. Tenoroc controlled the remainder of the first quarter and continued to do so in the second as the Avon Park offense struggled. And though the Titans dominated in time of possession and number of plays run, they were unable to score against the Avon Park defense and the lead held at 12-6 at the half. The offensive struggles for the Devils continued in the third quarter as they lost a fumble and punted twice on their first three possessions. At the same time, the Avon Park defense was getting stronger, forcing a turnover on downs and a three-and-out. That punt, however, pinned the Red Devils back on their own 1-yard line. They soon punted from there, after Dick was nearly sacked for a safety. The short punt that followed gave Tenoroc the ball on Avon Parks 24 to start the fourth quarter. The Titans scored soon after to take an 18-6 lead on a three-yard touchdown run by Smith. But with the lead lengt hened and time beginning to work against them, it was now or never for the Devils. Dick got the next drive started well, with a 13-yard run and lofted a deep pass down the left-center of the field. The pass fell incomplete, but a pass interference call was made in Avon Parks favor. That penalty, combined with unsportsmanlike penalty on the Tenoroc sideline pushed Avon Park past midSPORTS B SECTION Inside This Section Dragons held off by Hardee. . .3B Marital Arts after school . . .4B News-Sun Sunday, August 26, 2012 Courtesy photo A bevy of blockers clears the way for this Kasey Hawthorne touchdown run during the Eagles clean sweep of Auburndale in youth football action on Saturday, Aug. 18. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC) hosted itsofficial season opener on Saturday, Aug. 18, at Joe Franza Stadium to take on the Auburndale Hounds. The Eagles coaches and players were anxious to get on the field knowing that from this point on, every game counts and each win is one step closer to a divisional playoff game. The Lady Eagle cheerleaders started off the day getting the players pumped up for the slate of games and boosting the team spirit in the stands with the spectators. The first team to take the field was the Flag team, ages 5and 6-years old and coached by Steve Remes. On the first play of the game, William King ran the kickoff back for 60 yards to score the first touchdown of the day with Fred Hankerson making the extra point for an early 7-0 lead. The defense made their presence known and stood strong with key defensive plays by Julian Cardoso, John Alexander, Hankerson and King. The offense continued to drive throughout with Alexander taking in two and Hankerson one additional touchdown to wrap up the day with a final score of 136. It was a very exciting game with the Eagles getting the first win of the season. Next to take the field was coach Justin Jacksons Mighty Might team, ages 7, 8 and 9. The Eagles took the fie ld with pride and quickly dominated with running back Taivion Coston breaking out to score the first touchdown Eagles send Hounds to the doghouse See EAGLES, Page 4B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Shannon Huber lets out a scream and Shelbi Bertram celebrates as Lake Placid topped the Lady Streaks in Thursdays final day of the Sebring Preseason Classic. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Avon Park was brought back down to earth a little bit, while Lake Placid bounced back in a big way in Thursday nights finale of the Sebring Preseason Volleyball Classic. Amid an onrushing storm that kept knocking the lights out during the title game, the Lady Red Devils were stopped in three games by Okeechobee. After getting out to a strong start, and a 25-12 win in the opener, the Lady Brahmans were given all they could handle as Avon Park regrouped. The power kept going out, but that didnt mean we were going out, senior T eresa Devlin said. That was certainly the case as the Devils fought back, tooth-and-nail, with the perennially strong Chobee s quad. It wasnt quite enough, in the end, as the Brahmans held on for dueling 25-22 wins, but it gave Avon Park a glimpse of the level theyll have to play at as the regular season gets underway. We hung with them the whole time, they were close games, Devlin said. They just a lot more consistent. Consistency is certainly what Sebring is looking for more of, on the positive said, as they fell for the second time in the tournament, in four games to Lake Placid. The Lady Dragons came out looking for redemption from their three-game sweep at the hands of Okeechobee Tuesday, but the players had perhaps another incentive as well. I told the girls that this is basically their tryout for starting positions, head coach Linette Wells said. I think that, as well as playing against Sebring, really brought their level of play up. It began that way, with Lake Placid jumping out to a 7-1 lead in the opener. But with the help of a Meghan Lollis block and an Allie Mann kill from the back row, the Lady Streaks battled back to within 13-12. Another Lollis block, along with one from Paige Lewis and a Jordan Hinkle Dragons top Streaks, Chobee takes title See TOURNEY, Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Otisha Smith goes for the block of Darby Jones shot in Okeechobees win during the title game of the Sebring Preseason Classic. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The effects of Hurricane Isaac werent yet being felt, but Sebring got a little dose as the Dade Christian Crusaders rained on their parade Friday, winning the Kick Off Classic game at Firemens Field by a 24-14 final. AClass 2Apowerhouse, Dade Christian would prove to be a tough test with three first half scores, though each of the extra points were missed, to push the Crusaders out to an 18-0 lead and leave the Blue Streaks back on their heels. But this is the preseason, after all, and its a game like this that will test a teams mettle as the regular season awaits. We didnt play well in the first half and got into a hole, head coach LaVaar Scott said. Thats a very good team with some weapons, but we just needed to play harder. We had a much better effort in the second half. That they did as, after a trade off of interceptions, one by Blue Streak defensive back Arthur Williams, Sebring mounted a drive that was capped off by a touchdown run from Lake Placid transfer A.J. Gayle. That score cut it to 24-7, after Hunter Livingstons extra point kick split the uprights, with 6:13 left in the third. Both defenses held for the remainder of the period, with the Streaks keeping wide receiver Terrance Alls, a recent Duke signee in relaCrusaders stymie Blue Streaks See SEBRING, Page 3B Courtesy photo R yan Dick flies through the Tenoroc defense on a 70-yard score, one of four touchdowns he would account for in Avon Parks win.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWAUCHULA There are two ways to go about scheduling a Kick Off Classic, going for a Homecoming patsy for some early momentum, or locking horns with a strong team to get a better gauge. In facing Hardee, Lake Placid was obviously going w ith the latter option. And in so doing, the Dragons may have absorbed a 35-6 loss, but it was the little things seen within that were the greater benefit. Ever polished and potentially explosive on offense, the Wildcats showed a bit of both in their early scores. After taking the opening kick off, Hardee drove 60 yards in 10 plays for one, then after a Lake Placid punt, the first play from scrimmage produced a 55yard sprint and score for a 13-0 lead less than five minutes in. And while fifth-year head coach Jason Holden wasnt exactly joyous, he was seeing positives, noting that the Dragons technique was good, that it wasnt a matter o f missing tackles. There is just little accounting for the everpresent speed the Wildcats u sually bring to the table. The Lake Placid offense, w hile getting little room to b reath, much less run or set up to pass, for quarterback Robert Walton, did show some sporadic signs of life. Walton connected on a 28-yard pass play to Ricky Miller late in the first on third and long for a first down, and soon got around the edge on a roll out for another long gain. Foster Walker produced some nice runs throughout, though the scoreboard was not yet showing any full fruition. Another Hardee drive culminated in a short touchdown pass midway through the second for a 20-0 lead, and a fumbled punt snap we find the Dragon end zone for a safety to make the halftime margin 22-0. The Wildcats would find two more second-half scores, but Lake Placid would make their mark as well. Halfway through the third quarter, the tandem of Walton and Miller would hook up again, this time on a 61-yard touchdown toss, to give the Dragons something to build off of. And while there is work to be done in sharpening up the offense, some basic positives were seen, with just one fumble on the night, Lake Placid wasnt giving Hardee extra possessions, and the Dragons did show some offensive weapons for when the offense does begin to tighten up and show some polish. Lake Placid will spend the week practicing before hosting Celebration in its home opener to the regular season Friday. tive check. With 8:57 left in the fourth, however, Dade got a breakaway run on a quarterback keeper to up the ante to 24-7. But Gayle returned the ensuing kick off with a battering return past midfield. And Sebring soon showed itsexplosive potential on offense as quarterback Brandon Ferretti soon hooked up with wideout LaDante Harris on a 43-yard scoring pass moments later. Livingstons kick again was true and it was a 24-14 contest with 8:36 left to play. The Streaks defense would hold and get them the ball back for another chance to cut into the lead, but no more scoring plays would be made and it was off to reflection and preparation. You want to face a tough team so you can see what you need to work on, Scott said. Im not that upset, its a decent start and it lets us coaches know that weve got to do a better job in getting the guys ready to play. We had some real good efforts, we just have to play better. The Blue Streaks will get back at it this week and prepare to face DeSoto on the road next week to open the regular season.

But the Dragons held on for the 25-23 win and take the match lead. That was evened up quickly though, as Sebring was the team that came out firing in the second game, racing out to a 10-3 lead. They built on the lead until it was 20-12 before Lake Placid began to creep back into it. Rachel Alejandro had consecutive scores, on a block and tip, aiding a run to close it to 21-18, but two service aces from Hinkle soon closed out the 25-18 Streak win. But that late run by the Dragons was a forebear of things to come. During a tight battle in the early going of game three, Sebring began to break it open and pushed a 9-8 deficit to a 23-13 lead. But the combination of a Lake Placid surge, and a series of Streak miscues, saw the lead dwindle. Nine straight scores for the Dragons closed it to 23-22 before Sebring halted it and put themselves at game point. But Lake Placid would have none of it, scoring the next four to take an astonishing 26-24 win. We knew what we had to do to win, it was just the fact of doing it on the court, junior Abigail Samperi said. It was a mental thing for us. We had it set in our minds we were going to beat Sebring, and we were willing to do whatever it would take. That held true into the clincher, as again the Dragons found themselves on the brink, with Sebring at game point with a 24-20 lead. Lake Placid scored the next five to get a one-point lead and, after a brief Blue Streak rally extended it a bit, closed it out for a 28-26 wi n. We had a lot of mistakes, but very correctable mistakes, Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness said. But thats what this is for, and its good that it was tough competition. This tournament is for the county teams to break each other down, find each others weaknesses so that we can all build from it and get better for the season. And away we go.

Dick then connected with Steven Roberts for 28 yards to the Titans 9, though a downfield holding call brought the ball back out to the 19. Avon Park then ran a version of the flea flicker as Dick handed the ball off to the running back heading right. The ball was then pitched to Damon Braswell who was running in a reverse. Braswell stopped midfield and threw the ball to Dick who was standing alone in the end zone for a 19-yard touchdown pass. The two point conversion failed on an incomplete pass and Avon Park trailed 18-12. The Avon Park defense forced Tenoroc to punt after three plays on their next two possessions and the offense went back to work. Dick connected with Roberts on back-to-back pass plays, one on a quick inside slant for 24 yards and the second for 30 yards when Roberts out jumped the defender, and then broke away the final 10 yards to score. With the extra point, Avon Park held their first lead of the game 19-18. Avon Park scored on their next possession when Dick ran 58 yards for a touchdown. With the extra point, the lead now stood at 26-18 with 2:30 left in the game. The Avon Park defense ended any Tenoroc hopes of tying the score when Jarville Hart intercepted a Smith pass with just over a minute left in the game. Tenoroc had double the number of plays for the game, but total yardage for both teams was nearly even as Avon Park compiled 263 yards to the Titans 270. Dick ran the ball 11 times for more than 150 yard and scored twice. He was also 5 of 7 for 84 yards passing with a touchdown. He also caught a touchdown pass to account for his four touchdown performance. Roberts had three receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown. We tell our players not to take any one play seriously, said Brown. Keep playing and stick to what we coached and no matter what happens weve got to do it again next week. Next week brings the Frostproof Bulldogs to Avon Park for Fridays home opener to the regular season. Continued from 1B AP rally wins Kick Off Classic

For the aspiring cooks and crafters who frequent Pinterest.com,pinning something is one thing. Nailingit is another. By letting users create virtual pinboards,Pinterest has become a popular way to keep track of home decor i deas,recipes and craft projects spread across the Internet. But those who go beyond collecting pretty pictures and actually attempt to recreate the crafts often disc over its harder than it looks. Such failures are featured to humorous effect on at least two sites,including P intester.com and CraftFail.com. As the name i mplies,the former chronicles one womans dogged attempts to replicate recipes, fashion,beauty products and craft ideas she spots on P interest. The latter,which was launched before P interest existed,accepts submissions from anyone who has tried,and failed,at c rafting of any kind. Heather Mann of Salem, O re.,started CraftFail as a place to post her own failed projects away from her craft b log,Dollarstorecrafts.com. From her early posts about handmade soap that resemb led Spam (when you want to wash your hands with w hat appears to be potted meat),the site has attracted hundreds of entries from fellow crafters willing to poke fun at themselves. Pinterest i s now often the inspiration, or culprit,she said. With the popularity of Pinterest,a lot of new,inexperienced people are trying crafting. They see something on Pinterest that they like and they want to recreate it, and when they do,it doesnt turn out the way they wanted it to,she said. Mann can tell a project is popular on Pinterest by how many failed versions of it arrive in her inbox. When a project that called for baking cupcakes in ice cream cones reached its peak,she was getting a submission every other week. In May,she posted a round-up of those pesky ice cream cone cupcakes of doom,contrasting Betty Crockers perfectly formed,impeccably frosted cones with a collection of images showing cake batter oozing out of the cones. As on Pintester.com,the not-so-perfect pictures are often labeled with the tagline NAILED IT.But unlike Mann,Pintesters Sonja Foust is decidedly un-crafty. Some readers have complained shed have more success if she used the correct ingredients or materials. But this is how I really do it,even if I wasnt publishing it on a blog,she said. Its not that Im doing it just for the cheap laughs, Im just really bad at this stuff. Even when she follows the instructions,failure is common. Take the Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake.The original version from babble.coms The Family Kitchen blog shows a single serving of cake tucked into a dainty white mug,topped with a swirl of whipped cream and a scattering of strawberries. Fousts blog shows a lumpy,spongy mess she pried out of the mug with a spoon. I was pretty surprised and sort of torn between being disappointed that it didnt turn out and delighted that it was going to make a good blog post,said Foust, who lives in Durham,N.C., and writes romance novels in addition to her blog. Despite her admitted lack of skills,Foust said she frequently attempted to make recipes and crafts she saw on Pinterest even before she had her blog. I have this disease where I look at something and think,Oh,that looks really easy,I can do that!she joked. Andrea Green knows the feeling. In fact,she said the w ords I can do that!out loud the first time she saw, on Pinterest,the custom mixed-media pieces made by artist Eleanor Mathis,who creates 3-D maps of states and other locations using w ood,nails and string. All it is is nails and thread and a board. How hard could it be?said Green,of Lebanon,N.H. But in trying to make a modified version featuring her home state,she ran into some trouble early on when the board she purchased cracked in half before she even picked up her hammer. Undeterred,she started over and ended up pleased with the final result. For Green,who grew up drawing,knitting and sewing,Pinterest has been a huge source of inspiration. She started a blog,mykindaperfect.com,about a year ago to share her craft and cooking projects,including those inspired by Pinterest. She said her failures have been few,mostly because she is careful to pick projects that are doable. But I live in an apartment right now. Once I have a house,Im probably going to get a little adventurous break out some power tools, maybe,she joked. So thats a lot of room for failure,and success. Sites poke fun at Pinterest-inspired craft fails MCT Pinterest (above) lets people post their crafty ideas to inspire people to try the projects on their own. As Pintester.com (right) shows, the results arent always picture perfect. pintester.com I have this disease where I look at something and think Oh, that looks really easy, I can do that!SONJAFOUST pintester.com

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Youve got the idea. Now you need to know how to get on your way. Starting Your Businessis a class that teaches just that. From how to determine feasibility and legal structure to the type of license you will need,this class covers all the essentials that will help you get started. Starting Your Businessis a free seminar presented by the Small Business Development Center at University of South Florida. It is designed for persons thinking of starting a small business or who have started a business and want to make sure they did it correctly. The class will be held on Wednesday at South Florida State College Corporate and Continuing Education Room T24 from 2-4:30 p.m. The seminar will be presented by David Noel,certified business analyst with the SBDC. Seating is limited,so call Noel at 784-7378 to reserve a seat in the seminar or for further information. Not every interaction with the IRS must necessarily induce flop sweat. Case in point:A few years ago a friend of m ine decided his income taxes had become sufficiently complicated to merit hiri ng an accountant. After examining previous tax r eturns,the accountant discovered my friend had claimed the standard deduction for two years when he should have itemized e xpenses. He filed a couple of amended tax returns and v oila the IRS wrote him checks totaling more than $1,200. Of course,not all tax-filing mistakes end on such a h appy note. Sometimes people find out after submitting a return that their employer h ad sent an incorrect W-2 form,or they forgot to report self-employment income,or t hey incorrectly claimed someone as a dependent. Although its tempting to let such mistakes slide, chances are the IRS will discover the error eventually, and when they do you could b eliable for interest and penalties going back to the due date of the original tax return. Worst case:You could even face criminal charges for filing a fraudulent return. Heres a guide to when and how you should file an a mended tax return: If you discover an error on your federal income tax return after having already efiled or mailed it,you may file an amended return using IRS Form 1040X (at www.irs.gov). The following rules apply: -Amended returns cannot be e-filed; you must submit a paper version. -Submit a separate Form 1040X for each year's return you wish to amend and mail them in separate envelopes. Generally,you must file Form 1040X within three years from the date you filed your original return or within two years from the date you paid the tax,whichever is later. If your amended return involves changes to another schedule or form,you must attach a revised version of that schedule or form. If you're filing to claim an additional tax refund on a recently filed return,wait until you've received the original refund before filing F orm 1040X. Youre allowed to cash the original check while waiting for any additional refund. On the other hand,if your amended return will result in you owing additional tax,file it right away to limit interest and penalty charges that might accrue. The normal processing time for a Form 1040X is eight to 12 weeks. You neednt file an amended return because of simple math errors the IRS will automatically make corrections and bill you for any additional tax required (or increase your refund). Nor must you file a 1040X if you forgot to attached tax forms or schedules to your return. The IRS will send a request if it needs them. However,you should file an amended return if you: Received additional or amended tax forms or statements from employers, banks or investment brokers after you filed your return (e.g.,W-2 or 1099 forms). Forgot to report income. Overlooked tax deductions or credits you could have claimed. Claimed deductions or credits for which you werent eligible. Didnt claim a dependent you were entitled to,or claimed someone you shouldnt have. Chose the wrong filing status. One last tip:If youre going to the trouble of filing an amended tax return for a specific reason,review the entire original return carefully for any other deductions,credits or exemptions you might have missed the first time.

When your loved one deploys to Iraq, you expect them to come home injured ... (physically or e motionally) wounded, or you expect them to come back dead, Laura Monk told The Unknown Soldiers. She never thought her 20-yearo ld husbands combat deployment would end with a shocking diagnosis of leukemia. You never expect them to come back with cancer, she said. Laura met Austin on an early morning bus ride from her native Philadelphia to New York City in D ecember 2007. After initially being too nervous to talk to the cute soldier from Texas as the b us made the short trip up Interstate 95, they struck up a conv ersation. Everything else that wound up happening in our lives showed we w ere meant to meet, Laura said. Austin and Laura got married in M arch 2009, shortly after the soldier returned from Korea. It was awesome because we got to build our relationship through conversations, learn about each o ther over the phone and have an emotional connection, Laura said. We just fell in love. Less than five months after their wedding, Spc. Monk deployed to Iraqs Al Anbar Province with an 82nd Airborne Division personal security detachment. This is what I signed up to do, Austin said to his wife. Austin first complained about a terrible headache during one of the couples Skype conversations. Then, on Halloween 2009, Austin wrote Laura a MySpace message saying he had a 104-degree fever. Dont worry about me, Austin added. A few weeks later, fellow soldiers found Austin lying on the floor of his barracks. The ordeal that followed, which took the soldier from hospitals in Iraq to Germany, left Laura feeling helpless as she agonized over her husbands condition from thousands of miles away. They initially thought he had mono or tuberculosis and that the headache could have been from his wisdom teeth, Austins wife said. When Laura was informed her husband was suffering from leukemia, all she wanted was to be by his side. Ill be there soon, she said. After the Army flew Laura to Germany, she would rarely be separated from Austin again, except for one special week. He told me to go to Paris, Laura said. Even though he was stuck in the hospital, he wanted to make it enjoyable for me. Austin and Laura eventually ended up at a top cancer hospital in Houston. With Austins cancer in remission after a May 2011 bone marrow transplant, the Monks were preparing to head home to North Carolina, where the soldier was stationed, with a renewed sense of optimism. We thought we were good, Laura said. It was normalcy ... normalcy for us. Austin collapsed just hours before the couples flight. Afew hours later, the soldier learned his cancer had returned. That was the last time he was ever outside a hospital, Laura said. The Monks eventually returned to North Carolina, where Austin, 22, would spent his last days in a hospice facility. In the early morning hours of Oct. 5, 2011, Laura, who met the love of her life by chance on a bus, told her husband it was time for his next trip. Its okay for you to go, she whispered in Austins ear. I love you. Even after three years of pain, Laura feels deeply inspired by the courage displayed by her husband both as an American soldier and young cancer patient. I want him to be remembered as the smiling Austin, the guy who loved the Dallas Cowboys, the guy that no matter what the consequences, signed up and joined the Army, she said. Spc. Austin Monk will always b e with his wife. And due to the wonders of medical technology, Laura still hopes to bear his children. He would have been a great dad, she said. But hell be look ing down on us. Laura Monk expected the worst when her husband went to Iraq. But even after the unimaginable ordeal that followed, her outlook has changed for the better. I have to make the best of it because its all Ive got, she said To find out more about Tom Sileo or to read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate website at www.creators.com.

C M Y K Upon their a rrival, early settlers learned much from t he natives that resided in Florida. Explorers t raveled through rivers, swamps and streams and would often come upon w ildlife that they knew nothing about. The Native Americans knew the land and o ften assisted the visitors on their quest. One of the creatures the n atives warned the settlers about was the water mocc asin. It is said that the natives gave the water moccasin its original name b ecause of its silent movement through the water and i ts moccasin-coloredskin. To assist the newcomers,legend has it that they began to call these snakescottonmouths for easier identificat ion because of the white cotton-like substance the creat ure exhibits when it is threatened. The scientific name for the s nake is Agkistrodon piscivorus and is broken down f rom the Greek words ancistro meaning hooked, odon meaning tooth,piscis m eaning fish and voro means to eat. Therefore,the actual meaning of its name is hooked tooth fish eater, which is an accurate descript ion of the creature. The hooked teethare actually the venom injecting fangs that are somewhat curved. As far as diet,the s nake is an opportunistic feeder and will munch on f ish,frogs and most any warm or cold blooded creat ure it can catch. Water moccasins are the worlds only semiaquatic viper. These snakes are very strong swimmers and are g enerally found in slow-moving water such as lakes, streams,swamps and marshes. However,they can and do enter the sea and have been k nown to colonize on islands off the coasts. Often confused with brown water snakes,the moccasin has a triangular shaped broad head which is quite distinct from the neck. It has a blunt snout and elliptical cat-eye pupils and a dark facial line which extends through the eye. Colors range from dark brown,grey and black. They are marked with dark cross bands that extend down the back. The bands will usually fade with age and the juveniles are much brighter in color and have a bright yellow tail. The underside of the creature is lighter,generally yellowish white. The moccasin has a distinctive cottontextured covering on the inside of its mouth. When startled or threatened it will open its jaws exposing the cotton mouth.These heavily bodied creatures grow to be 2 1/2 to 5 feet long. Another way to tell the difference from the non-venomous water snakes and the cottonmouth is by their defense mechanisms. Moccasins will vibrate their tails against leaves,water or other objects when provoked or frightened,imitating the sound of the rattlesnake. Most water snakes will slither away and flee an area when approached. The moccasin will sometimes stand its ground and give warnings such as hissing,tail rattling, opening its mouth,flattening its body,emitting a musky smell,and remaining in position until the threat is gone. However,even though these snakes have a reputation as being nasty and badtempered,their aggressiveness has been greatly exaggerated. In fact,during laboratory testing,wild specimens were approached by humans and 23 of 45,or 51 percent,tried to escape; 28 of 36 or 78 percent,opted to use defensive tactics. Only when the snakes were picked up by a mechanical hand,did they choose to bite. Mating rituals for these creatures take place in the spring. The male will fight other males for the right to mate with a female. The young are born live. The female gives birth to at least 16,which are born with v enom intact. These tiny serpents are designed to take care of themselves the moment they arrive in the wild. W ater moccasins are active day and night. Like all reptiles,they are cold-blooded and like to warm up on sunny days. They can be seen coiled up or stretched out on land during hot summer days. Otherwise,they are usually swimming or crawling in or near the water. Although their reputation is based on mostly myth, water moccasins do have a very serious bite. Their venom is more toxic than most snakes and will destroy tissue and blood cells. The venom is hemotoxic and it w orks by preventing the bodys blood supply from coagulating,which may cause severe blood loss in the victim. The bite is extremely painful and medical treatment is required as soon as possible. Antivenoms are available at most hospitals and death from snakebites in this day and age is very rare. Most bites from venomous snakes turn out to be dry bites,which is when the snake bites but doesnt inject any venom. Snakes dont want to waste their venom, which they rely on for capturing prey. However,all snake bites should be taken seriously and medical attention should be sought. According to research from the University of Florida, The chances of dying from a venomous snakebite in the United States is nearly zero, because we have available, high-quality medical care in the U.S. Fewer than one in 37,500 people are bitten by venomous snakes in the U.S. each year (7-8,000 bites per year),and only one in 50 million people will die from snakebite (5-6 fatalities per year). Did you know that you are nine times more likely to die from being struck by lightning than to die of venomous snakebite?

C M Y K Metro ServicesAries (March 21-April 20) Aries,balance and harmony will reign supreme this week. If there is something you have been meaning to change,now is the time to get it done. Taurus (April 21-May 21) Intentions can be lost when communication is not effective,Taurus. So dont expect someone to understand simply by your actions alone. Explain yourself along the way. Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini,sometimes you give off the impression that everything is going well, even when it is not. Hiding your emotions works sometimes,but this week find another strategy. Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,most of the time you seem slow and steady. But every once in a while you show some passion that others may not expect from you. These sudden bursts are human. Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo,you cant change the path the stars have set in your place even if you want to. Its best to simply accept the cards and make the most of them.

Solution on page 10B I had the most wonderful driving teacher in high school. He taught his students lovingly and practically. Adjust the seat, mirrors and seat belt. To this day,I automatically do those things. Its like Im glancing in the rearview mirror to say thanks to my instructor. If my seat and mirrors arent correctly positioned for me,my control of the vehicle and perspective of everything around me will be skewed (not to mention the endangerment to myself and others without my seat belt). Entering real traffic,my instructor reminded me to check my mirrors,especially the rearview mirror. That was difficult as I was afraid to take my eyes off the road ahead. But I soon learned the importance of knowing what the traffic flow was like behind and alongside me when he instructed me to take the next exit. Fear met faith as I employed my new skills to follow his directions. W ith just a glance backwards and alongside,I could change lanes and move forward confidently. I like thinking of my life that way,too. When I glance in the rearview mirror on my lifes journey,I recognize Gods presence behind me. No matter what path I was traveling,God was there giving me direction,guidance and confidence whether on the right path or off the beaten track. The purpose of the rearview mirror in a car and in life isnt to keep us looking backw ards,but to give us perspective of what is going on around us so we can move forward. When we acknowledge Gods presence with thanksgiving in our rearview mirror of memories,we become enthusiastic and are propelled forward. But if we put the car of our lives in reverse and try to linger there,well never move ahead (and have any number of crashes by going backwards instead of forward on the road of life!). There may be a variety of reasons why we would w ant to linger in the past, but by doing so,we will miss the present and the future God has promised us in Jeremiah 29:11. I love how Proverbs 3:56,NKJV,help us get perspective on trust in the past,present and future. It says,Trust in the Lord with all your heart,and lean not on your own understanding; in all your w ays acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Glance back and see how far God has brought you and then move forward in thanksgiving and faith.

During this time he has been in and out of work. Anytime we go anywhere or do anything, he never offers to pay. Even if he has money in his pocket,hell look the other way when a check arrives. Other times,he insists on Dutch treat. Larry says we were raised differently. I say hes cheap. When the holidays come around,I never receive a gift or a card. I am a hardworking woman who is currently holding down two full-time jobs. I dont see why Larry feels he is entitled. Am I out of line for thinking a man should treata woman? I just dont think Larry is morally correct. Paying Dearly in Naples Dear Paying Dearly: I agree that you and Larry were raised differently. I also agree that hes cheap. However,the idea that a man should ALWAYS treat a woman is outdated. You signed yourself Paying Dearly.The question is,are you getting what youre paying for and is it enough for you? If the answer is no,then scratch Larry. Dear Abby: My wife and I were sorting through some old things of mine and came across a wallet containing some pictures of my old high school girlfriend. Normally,I wouldnt think twice about tossing them,but in this case,she was someone I had stayed very close with (platonically) until her untimely death several years ago. What is the protocol for throwing away things like this,when its someone you were close to who is now deceased? Im sure her parents wouldnt want them. It feels disrespectful to toss them in the trash,but at the same time I dont really feel I need to keep them. My wife doesnt care either way if I keep them or not. To Keep Or Not To Keep Dear ToKeep: Offer the pictures to your former girlfriends family because they might surprise you and consider them treasures. However,if theyre not interested and you cant bring yourself to put them in the trash,put them in the box in which you found them and let your family deal with them after youre gone. Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married for 10 years,together for 15. When we met,he was in a band and we did a lot of socializing,drinking,partying,etc. Over the years and two children later,I enjoy these activities less as the demands of parenting and full-time careers take top priority. My husband frequently makes the comment,You USED to be fun.I find it incredibly hurtful and have told him so,but he continues to repeat it. Sometimes Im tempted to lash out and say,Then go find yourself someone who is! Is there any other way I can address this? Party-Poopein New York Dear Party-Pooper: Yes. The next time your husband says,You used to be fun,rather than become defensive,ask him to explain what he means. What EXACTLY does he miss? The freedom? Not having the responsibilities of a full-time career and two children? The drinking? If he misses the carefree woman you used to be,find a sitter and schedule some regular adult time together. If its something more than that,you may need a marriage counselor. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Sunday, August 26, 2012 Political conventions are not all campaign posters and confetti. With both parties already embroiled in a heated presidential contest, we take a look at the history,procedures and purpose of the Democratic and Republican conventions.When voters cast their ballots in a primary election,they arent actually choosing a presidential candidate. Instead,the process determines delegates representatives who will attend each partys national convention to officially select the candidate. The trip to becoming one of thousands of voting delegates at either political convention is a lengthy one,and can be quite different depending on the state and the party. Its not the same everywhere,said U.S. Rep. David Loebsack,formerly a politics professor at Cornell College in Mount Vernon,Iowa,and now an Iowa congressman. It can be a little complicated.Primaries vs.caucusesFor the Democrats,states hold either a primary election in which voters cast ballots for delegates,a caucus in which voters meet in each district,or both,in the cases of Virginia and Texas. Republicans,meanwhile,use the same methods,but in many states,voters simply decide on the presidential candidate and essentially vote in that candidates selection of delegates. The obvious difference is the caucus is more limited,said Joseph F. Zimmerman, professor of political science at Rockefeller C ollege,University at Albany,N.Y. Someone has to organize a local caucus and invite people,and they may not invite everyone. ... A direct primary is state-certified,so a larger percentage of people participate.Unpledged vs. pledged delegates There are two types of delegates who attend the convention,pledged and unpledged. Pledged delegates announce who they support,pledging their vote to a candidate. Unpledged delegates,who are generally party leaders,do not have to support anyone and can change their votes. But technically,Zimmerman said,any of the delegates could change their vote.Casting the ballots All in all,nearly 6,000 Democratic delegates and 2,286 Republican delegates will officially name the party nominees,even though the conclusions are already foregone.20,500Seating available at the Tampa Bay Times Forum200,000Pounds of lighting, cables and speakers used at the F orum1887Year Tampa was incorporated as a city21Tampas ranking among American metropolitan areas2,286Expected delegates2,125Expected alternate delegates15,000Expected media members7,500V olunteers w orking conventionrelated activities3Number of times Florida has hosted the GOP convention400Motor coaches charted to transport delegates16,000Hotel rooms housing delegates, media and convention guests Republican ConventionWhere: Tampa When: Aug.27-30 Main venue: Tampa Bay Times Forum Website: www.gop convention2012.comMCCLATCHY-TRIBUNEINFORMATIONSERVICES The Anti-Masonic Party held the first national convention in Baltimore in 1831. At the 1864 convention,Republicans renamed their organization the Union Party in an effort to garner support for the North during the Civil War. In 1872,the Equal Rights Party nominated the first female presidential candidate,Victoria Claflin Woodhull. Her running mate was black leader Fredrick Douglass. The 1940 Republican convention was the first political convention to be televised. Chicago has hosted a record 25 Democratic and Republican conventions. For the Democrats:This years convention is being touted as the most open and accessible in history.Focus is on grassroots involvement and enlisting people who want to put their shoulder to the wheel and change the country for the better. The week kicks off with CarolinaFest,a family friendly Labor Day celebration honoring the American worker. The free festival offers family activities,live music,food and culture. President Barack Obama will accept the nomination on Day 4 in the Bank of America Stadium where the public has been invited to attend. Also,for the first time in history,the convention has not accepting cash from corporations,lobbyists or PACs. Funding was raised grass-roots style through social media, email campaigns and an online merchandise store,according to the host committee.For the Republicans:The Tampa event is the 40th Republican National Convention. It is being billed as the Convention Without Walls,a technology effort combining websites,social media,live chats,mobile apps,streaming video and webcasting. The outreach includes Facebook and Twitter,as well as Pinterest,Instagram and other sites. The convention stage also follows the technological innovations with 13 LED panels creating a large-scale backdrop with video capabilities. This years convention themes include We Can Do Better,We Built Itand We Can Change It. This convention will present our vision for a brighter,better future and it will lay out an optimistic,achievable plan to make it happen,said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. Do you know what a plankis? Whats a superdelegate (and does she get to wear a cape)? Here are some terms you might hear during the convention:Credentials committee:A body that decides which delegates should be allowed into the convention if a dispute arises between factions of delegates who support different candidates. Delegates:A group of party members who officially vote for the presidential nominee. Each state and territory is allotted a certain number of delegates based on its population.Federal Election Commission:The organization gives public funds to both partiespresidential campaigns following the partiesconventions. The commission prohibits the use of privately raised money between a partys convention and the November election.Keynote speech:One of the major events of the convention; it is given on the conventions first day and is usually delivered by a party luminary.Nomination:Given to a partys presidential and vice presidential candidates who receive the most delegate votes. The nomination process has become a formality with the advent of primaries,which predetermine how many votes a candidate will receive at the convention. Platform:A statement that outlines a partys and its candidates stance on a variety of issues. A plankrefers to a specific issue category in the platform.Rules committee:Group that determines the guidelines for the convention. Superdelegates:A group of elected officials and party members that comprises about one-sixth of the Democratic delegates and is free to vote for any candidate at the convention. This group is also known as unpledgeddelegates. 1860:In an upset victory,dark horse candidate Abraham Lincoln,a senator from Illinois,wins the Republican nomination at the Chicago convention. 1896:William Jennings Bryan,the Democratic presidential nominee,rouses convention attendees with his Cross of Goldspeech,which calls on the government to stop using the gold standard,a policy he believed caused inflation and made it harder for farmers to repay loans. 1912:At the Republican convention, President William Taft and former President Theodore Roosevelt tussle for their partys nomination,and the incumbent barely inches out a victory over the roughrider. 1968:Thousands of protesters,enraged by the Vietnam War and assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.,descend on the Democratic convention in Chicago. The police respond forcefully, creating several days of riots that result in 500 arrests and more than 200 injuries. 1992:Texas Gov.Ann Richards criticizes then-President George H. W. Bush at the Democratic convention with the line, Poor old George. He cant help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.SOURCES:WWW.DEMCONVENTION.COM, WWW.GOPCON VENTION2008.COM, CONGRESSIONAL QUARTERLY,THE GREEN PAPERS, REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE In 2004,100,000 biodegradable balloons were inflated by 200 young people in only six hours for the Republican convention. The balloons were dropped from 50 nets hung 75 feet above the floor of Madison Square Garden. In 2004,1,000 pounds of red,white and blue paper confetti and at least 100,000 red, white and blue,biodegradable balloons dropped on a crowd of more than 20,000 guests at the Democratic convention in Boston. The logistics of an outdoor stadium event at Bank of America Stadium may call into question the ability to have a balloon drop at this years Democratic convention.
