C M Y K B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRINGThe weather in New York City was picturep ostcard perfect on T uesday,Sept. 11, 2001. Catherine Griffith arrived for work at Blue Cross/Blue Shield, whose offices were on the 29th floor of Tower 1,the World Trade Center.She changed out of the sneakers she wore while commuting,p utting on her high-heeled shoes. She and a colleague were chatt ing,Griffith said,when there was a loud bang and the buildings hook. It felt just like a wrecking ball had been swung into a wall,she said. One wall split open all the way from the top to the bottom. I t was 8:46 a.m. No one had any idea of what was happening. Looking out a window,Griffith could see debris floating downf rom above a blizzard of paper and pieces of furniture and office machines. Panic set in and everyone ran for the elevators. Griffith was following the exodus when she remembered her cell phone was still in her desk drawer. She went back to get it. I should have grabbed my sneakers instead,she said. Working their way downstairs, everything was confusion,but no one even thought the building would collapse. On the 12th floor the crowd met firefighters and police officers running up past them. Soon after,water began to pour down the stairs. No one cared, Griffith said. Guided through the lobby to the Liberty Street exit,Griffith said the floor was totally demolished. It looked like someone had used a pneumatic drill. As dangerous as it was,however,the other lobby was blocked 11 years later, Catherine Griffith can still taste the dust in her mouth NEWS-SUNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Sunday September 9, 2012www.newssun.comVolume 93/Number 112 | 75 cents www.newssun .com H ighLow 89 75C omplete Forecast PAGE 12A Partly sunny with a T-storm possible F orecast Question: Does Joshua Lee Altersberger deserve to be put to death for killing FHP Trooper Nick Sottile in 2007?

C M Y K By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It was a hot,busy morning for nearly 60 nature lovers at CampC loverleaf Saturday as the first 4-H Club National Planting Day event took place. Local 4-H members from several different groupsc ame together at the camp to take part in a national campaign that was localized at the hands of several volunteers. The Keep Highlands C ounty Beautiful campaign was the driving force behind t he event and coordinator Christy Reed approached the 4-H about joining in on thee ffort. Christy came to me about i t in July,said Lauren Hrncirik,4-H Youth Development Agent. The idea comes on the same day as other 4-Hersa cross America are making a more beautiful place to live i n. e started at 8:30,just like everyone else. I honestlyt hought wed be out here well past lunch,but these k ids work really fast, Hrncirik said. The first-time event was a h uge success that Hrncirik and Reed contribute to all the volunteers and donations that t ook place. e got the trees from R obbins Nursery,LaGrow Irrigation helped out,and Choice Environmental and Keep Highlands Beautiful all contributed to this project,R eed said. Help from the Highlands County University of Florida Extension Office also proved to be a vital part of the pro-j ects success. e had Master Gardeners h ere also. They are all volunteers from the extension office. They are specialists inh orticulture. They came out and told the kids how to p lant,how to separate the roots,how far down to plant them,what bugs and insectst o look out for; things they wouldnt know normally, Hrncirik said. 4 -H members planted 234 small trees Saturday morning i n just two short hours. The fence that separates the open field at Camp Cloverleaf from Cloverleaf Road was the most extensive part of thep roject. e planted 170 just along the fence. That is the main phase of the project. Once t hose grow up it will provide a beautiful,fresh buffer. That i s a pretty popular and busy road so we want it to look nice there,Hrncirik said. The inaugural event proved to be a true community part-n ership bringing together the smallest hands and the biggest hearts in agriculture and nature. This couldnt have happ ened without all those different volunteers and donat ions. I cant even tell you how grateful we are for everything. Without thet rees,which I dont even know how much those cost R obbins Nursery,and all the knowledge,we couldnt have done it. The specialists giv-i ng their expertise was a huge help and,of course,the kids,Hrncirik said. R eed agreed and was thrilled to be a part of the f irst-time event with the kids. This has been great; the kids worked hard. They provided the most important part,the labor,and they haved one a good job,Reed said.

COMMUNITYBRIEFS Centennial Notebook B y Jen Brown There has been a lot of buzz about Downtown Sebring lately the new chamber CEO moving hiso ffice back to the downtown chamber,the new I L ove Downtown Sebring CRA campaign that will be launching next month,a ll the Centennial events that will be happening in a nd around The Circle it only makes sense for this weeks article to be about beautiful downtown Sebring,our lovely Cityo n the Circle. Historic Downtown S ebring,one of three Florida cities built on a circle,is ideally suited forw alking. The entire downtown is a designated 1 920s Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. On TheC ircle you will discover a diverse collection of places to browse,eat and s hop. Youll also find a mix of boutiques,clothing s tores,consignment stores,art galleries,gift shops,antiques and restaurants. According to an econ omic analysis,for every $100 spent at a locallyowned business,$45 goes back into the community and local tax base,and for every $100 spent at a nonlocal chain store,only $13c omes back to the local area. With that unders tanding,it makes sense to shop locally. Further savings can be had with the Buy Downtown Sebringdis-c ount card,offering discounts at approximately 35 of the merchants on and surrounding The Circle. You simply presentt he card to the merchant when making your purchase to benefit from the offer. The money saving discount card is free of charge,and can be picked up at either Sebring chamber locations,at 309 East Circle Park and 227 U.S. 27 North,at participating merchants or online at www.BuyDowntownSebri ng.com. Each month,the downtown merchants stay open late on the second Friday with a special free event, Destination Downtown Sebring,featuring entertainment,light refreshments and storewide specials to visitors enjoying Sebring's Historic Downtown. During the Centennial Celebration week,Oct. 12,Destination Downtown Sebring will feature its second annual Halloween Bash Centennial Style,with games,a Centennial Costume Contest and more. Destination Downtown Sebring is a group of active merchants who work hard every month hosting terrific events in downtown Sebring. This volunteer group works hard to bring fun and excitement to downtown while still running their own businesses. Please show them your support.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Highlands County Health Department and the Florida Department of Health (DOHc aution citizens that wildfire smoke is a respiratory irritant that can cause scratchy throat or irritated eyes and nose. Smoke can also worsen conditions such as asthma and other chronic respiratory orl ung conditions. How to protect your family f rom smoke: Pay attention to local air quality reports,news coverage or health warnings related to smoke. Use common sense when outside conditions are smoky. Avoid prolonged outdoor activities. It is especially important to limit time spento utdoors for children and persons with existing medical c onditions. Stay indoors and run your air conditioner,if you have one. Keep the fresh air intake closed and the filter clean top revent bringing additional smoke inside. For best results,run the air conditioning with re-circulated air. Note:If you do not have an air conditioner,staying inside with the windows closed mayb e dangerous in extremely hot weather. In these cases, s eek alternative shelter. Help keep particle levels lower inside. When smoke levels are high,try to avoid using anything that burns,s uch as wood fireplaces,gas logs,gas stoves and even candles. Do not vacuum,which stirs up particles already insidey our home. Also do not smoke tobacco. Follow your doctors advice about taking medicines and following your asthma management plan if you have asthma or otherl ung disease. Call your doctor if your symptoms worsen. For additional information,contact the Highlands County Health Department at 386-6040. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, September 9, 2012Page 3A DR.

I want to buy a really nice,big telescope for astronomy courses,Stephan said. e have a few little ones, but there only really good for looking at the moon. The Meade Light Bridge is powerful and the cutting edge of its field. It stands 6 feet tall and provides ample vision and clarity for gazers. (Information about the telescope may be found at www.astronomics.com/) The telescope will allow students to see thousands of objects in the universe and a much better view of the moon. ve worked for a number of professional astronomers doing observations for them.I know this will be a great addition. We can use this telescope for stargazing nights three or four times a year, Stephan said. After seeing a spark of interest in middle school students Stephan found an even greater interest in the science of space when he moved to the high school. Avon Park has the lowest poverty rate in the county. Most of the kids have never even looked at a telescope before. When I saw the spark and the interest,I knew I had to invest,Stephan said. I love teaching here. There is so much happening here,so much good but that usually isnt ever seen; just the bad. Stephan has partnered with the Avon Park Chamber of Commerce for his fundraising efforts to get the $2,000 telescope. I brought it to the chamber and Laura Wade just jumped on it. She is actively looking for businesses to get involved with the fundraising efforts,Stephan explained. Mr. Stephan is an active amateur astronomer and does work for professional astronomers. He also gives quarterly night sky presentations at Highlands Hammock State Park,and would use the telescope at these,too,Wade stated. The telescope will remain property of APHS,but will be able to be moved to the park for viewings as approved through school administrators,according to Stephan. The administration has been tremendously supportive of the idea ... Im excited about it. This is my specialty and I love teaching the students about it,Stephan said. If they (students ing something positive about their school and about their community,thell have a better attitude. Thell start feeling proud of themselves, their school and their community. Donations for the Avon Park High science class telescope are welcomed from businesses,organizations and individuals. Checks may be mailed to Avon Park Chamber of Commerce,28 E. Main St. Checks should be made payable to Avon Park High School. Anyone interested or needing more information may contact Wade at the chamber office at 453-3350 or call Stephan at the school, 452-4311.

The lawsuit mirrors a lett er sent this week by federal officials to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi alleging the state is violating federal law by allowing more than 200c hildren with disabilities and even babies to be kept i n nursing homes,often for years. The suit and federal regul ators say children languish in facilities,sharing comm on areas with elderly patients and having few interactions with others, rarely leaving the nursing homes or going outside.A fter visiting children in six nursing homes,investig ators noted the children are not exposed to social, educational and recreational activities that are critical to child development. Educational opportunitiesa re limited to as little as 45 minutes a day,according to a detailed letter sent Tuesday by U.S. Department of Justice offi-c ials. These kids who are institutionalized in geriatric nursing homes are receiving less services than kids inp rison,said Paolo Annino, a law professor at Florida State University and one of the attorneys working on the lawsuit filed against the state earlier this year inM iami federal court. Investigators also said F lorida is violating the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and isi nfringing on the childrens civil rights by segregating a nd isolating them. The average length of stay is three years,according to the letter. Once they do get to the f acility,many stay for years,some literally grow u p in a nursing home, according to the letter. F eds: Fla. dumping disabled kids in nursing homes TALLAHASSEE (AP A high-stakes billiondollar battle over publice mployee pensions was waged before the Florida Supreme Court on Friday. A group of unions led by the states teacheru nion want the high court to strike down a new law that is forcing employees to pay 3 percent of their salaries for part of their retirementc osts. But during the hourl ong hearing,justices appeared to be skeptical to arguments that the2 011 requirement violated collective bargaining a nd contract rights for the roughly 600,000 state workers,teachers,firefighters and sheriffs deputies who are nowc ontributing to their pension. A decision by the Supreme Court could still be months away,but thee nd result will either be a vindication for Gov. Rick S cott and the GOP-controlled Legislature,or it will create a nearly $2b illion budget gap for state and local governments. L awmakers made the change to plug a previous b udget shortfall. While that fact is not central to the lawsuit it appeared to weigh on justices. Why would the Legislature bind itself forever no matter what the budget crisis is? Justice Barbara Pariente said at one point. Ron Meyer,the lawyer r epresenting the Florida Education Association a nd other unions,contended that the Legislature can force newly-hired public employees to pay fort heir pension,but that it has no right to pass that mandate on those already on the job. ou cant change the g ame in the middle of the game,Meyer said.

T he Florida Supreme Court brought that process another step closer to a con-c lusion Thursday by rejecting Altersbergers appeal,agreei ng with the jury that voted 9 to 3 for the death penalty. He may still appeal at the federal level. This ruling raises once a gain the long-running death penalty debate. C ritics point to the fact that it is an irreversible punishment. They argue that i nnocent people are sometimes found guilty and put to death. Later,when mistakes are discovered,the damage cannot be undone. They add a communitys thirst forr evenge too often colors the entire judicial process. C ritics also argue on moral grounds how are we different from cold-bloodedk illers,they ask,if we kill in cold blood ourselves. P roponents of the death penalty,on the other hand, point to the menace killers pose to society. The only way we can be sure someonen ever kills again,proponents say,is to put them to death b efore they do. Proponents also argue that sentencing killers to life in prison is an expensive burd en,with no guarantee a dangerous individual wont escape or be released. Critics argue murderers may find a way to be of ben-e fit to society. They see the death penalty as a waste of a human life. Proponents argue the wasted life is that of the victim. Why should a murdererr emain alive,to be visited by his family,when the victims f amily will never see their loved one again? Both critics and propon ents are often emotional in their opinions. S ome individuals see killers as victims themselves, twisted by violence or neglect as children. Others see them as mons ters who should not just be put to death,but tortured f irst. There are cases,however, when a murder can be understood. There are even circums tances where everyone agrees a killer should be forgiven. The killing of Trooper Sottile is not such a case. H ow can anyone argue that Altersberger deserves any pity? Yes,he was young and had a difficult life,but so do a lot of people who never shoots omebody. Altersberger was the one with a gun in his car. H e was the one who said he would use it. He was the one who ambushed anotherh uman being and pulled the trigger. He was the one who b ragged about what he did. In short,both critics and proponents of the death penalty here at the News-Sun are agreed on one point w hatever the merits or dangers of the death penalty in g eneral,Altersberger brought his troubles on himself and good riddance. Hard to argue against death penalty for Altersberger In 2007 19-year Joshua Lee Altersberger shot and killed Florida State Trooper Nicholas Sottile in cold blood during a routine traffic stop. Brain washedEditor: Sitting on the sidelines watching billions of foreign dollars brain wash the American voter into voting foreign interest instead of voting their own self interest. Just as lobbyists buy their way in Americas elections allowing foreign nations a vote in Americas voting process. Has Americas Supreme Court been struck both dumb and blind? Is Mitt Romney, the pick of the Republican Party for President of these United States,a tax dodger? The American tax system is the backbone of Americas financial success. We, America,have to have a fair tax system,yet we allow Switzerland and other foreign nations to aid and abet tax dodgers in America,such as Mitt Romney and our top manufacturers to evade paying into the American tax system. All nations who practice this tax evasion scheme should be stopped from receiving any American tax aid for their nations. In the 1400s,the Spanish Inquisition stole all property rights and monies from the Jews,going forward in the 1920s and 1930s Germany did the same,stealing millions in properties and monies from the Jews,which was put into Swiss bank accounts to hide from the worlds eyes. Most of the properties and monies have never been returned. All nations that practice aiding and abetting criminal acts should not receive one single dime of American tax dollar aid. They should,instead,be treated as lepers in the worlds financial markets. If the facts remain true that Romney is a tax dodger, just as he is a known draft dodger,he should not be allowed to run for the presidency of these United States. A requirement for the office of President of these United States requires that you must be a citizen of these United States. A citizen must serve in the armed service in time of war when called upon. Mitt Romney refused the call four times. A citizen must pay his taxes. Mitt Romney has evaded his taxes for quite a few years. He used tax dodges to evade paying any taxes. In America,there are tax dodges set up for the elite in this nation of socalled equal rights for all. Mitt Romney does not meet the requirement as a citizen of these United States. I am not a Democrat,nor am I a Republican. I am an American first and last. Romney has proven that he does not meet the citizenship requirement. I would hope that every American voter understands that the Republican party and the men running for the presidency and vice-presidency have never accepted Social Security,Medicare or any social program that aids working-class America. The Supreme Commandant of us all and His Son are watching and so is the American voter. I humbly ask that all voters vote their own self interest and not the interest of foreign powers in their quest to destroyAmericas political system. The Supreme Court is again committing treason as they did in 2002, by passing the voting public and installing a President of these United States. I charge the United States Supreme Court with treason in allowing foreign money to influence the 2012 Presidential Elections. May the Supreme Commandant and His Son watch over us. Billie E. Jewett SebringRemembering the wind chargersEditor: Was woods,Jackson Creek and more woods. And in the teens,if you went uptown from our house in a wagon or car,you had to take the wagon trail past the Hodge place. And then go up Highlands Avenue. That was before Lakeview Drive was there. I remember my dad telling me he went over to visit Hodge on Sunday afternoon. Dad was walking back home that afternoon. He got caught in a rain storm. Dad was walking just before he got to Jackson Creek. There was a pine tree off to the side of the road. Lightning hit the pine tree. It knocked Dad down on his knees. He said that he didnt know what happened at first. Hodge had an eight-foot Chicago air-motor windmill on about a 30-foot tower. That was the first windmill I can remember seeing. Hodge also had a wind charger on about a 40-foot tower.There was a little building right beside the wind charger. I remember Mrs. Hodge took my dad and I into that little building and told us all about how that wind charger worked. The only thing I can remember is there were two long rows of batteries all hooked together in that little building. Sometime in the 1950s, Hodge took down the old wind charger and put a new wind charger up. The new tower was about 80 feet tall. Then in about the 1970s,the Hodgesgrove was pushed up. The building and everything else on Hodges place was taken down. In the first of the 1990s,I was talking with Hank Webster. Hank asked me if I remembered that tall wind charger at the old Hodge place. I said yes I remembered that tall wind charger. Hank told me he was the one who climbed up that tower. Hank said he had his safety belt loose enough where he could lean out away from it. William Schlosser Sebring It seemed only fair that since I sat through parts of the Republican national convention that I do the same for the Democrat one. A reader chastised me last week for not dropping everything and watching the Republican convention g avel to gavel. He will not be happy with me this week,because I still had a life and did not sit and watch gavel to gavel. I didc atch the major speeches a nd a few other things,and thats enough to talk about for today. B esides,at least for me, watching the Democrat convention was a little harder,mostly because I have to watch my temperw hile watching them. There are reasons I have never been and never will be a member of the Democratp arty. Their attitude about c onservatives is one reason. I will give the Democrats credit for one thing they managed to deviate from script,making the proceedings briefly interesting. Most of the time,both par-t ies rigidly control and script their three-day infomercial,which makes for a smooth run but can make actually watching the thing a little dull. But those wacky Democrats managed to stir up some dust over two words:odand Jerusalem.You see,in this years platform,any mention of God and the statement that Jerusalem is the capitol of Israel were taken out. On Wednesday,after there was some news about these omissions,the powers that be in the party decided maybe they wanted those items back in after all. Since changes to the platform have to be passed by two-thirds majority of the delegates,the measure was put before the people. It took three votes,and to my ears they didnt have two-thirds the third time either. But the poor guy running the thing decided that third time was the charm and declared the measure passed,despite the boos that greeted his decision. This is democracy? But the big thing of course was the speeches. One speech I missed but heard about later was give n by Benita Veliz. Accordingt o www.latimes.com,she was the first illegal immigrant to ever speak at a n ational political convention. Veliz was brought to the United States as a child and supports President Obamas efforts to legalizet hose in her situation. I am not without sympathy to her situation,and I realize she didnt come here on her own free will,b ut what about those that did? Do we just wink and f orget that laws are being broken? It seems to me thatD emocrats want to do just that. I listened to the big speeches. Michelle Obama was gracious and well-spo-k en. Bill Clinton did a good job,though someone needs to teach the man brevity. (Ive always said that Clinton would make ag reat radio talk show host. His latest speech didnt change my mind.) Then there was the President. He stated a lot of goals he wanted to accomplish,though he wasnt clear on exactly how he would do it. I asked my computer monitor several times exactly how he intended to pay for all these wonderful things, when were already bleeding money. Despite what some want you to believe, there arent enough rich people to tax to pay for everything. But now,thankfully,the conventions are done. I can start going to bed at a decent hour again. At least until the debates. Take a deep breath and get ready the real campaigning is about to begin. May we all survive it. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

An elevator had exploded and body parts were strewn everywhere. Emerging outside,Griffith learned Tower 2 had also been hit. Military jets roared over head. At first,she a nd the people around her were confused and frightened because no one knew if the jets were American or if t he country was under attack. Police officers told everyone to go home,but no one could move. I was mesmerized,Griffith said. e were all in shock and disbelief. W e just stood and watched. When Griffith noticed the tower fires were getting worse,she decided it would be wise to go home. She walked to the nearest subway stat ion. T here,a large crowd waited p atiently on the platform. Then dust began to drift down into the stationt hrough the street grates. A woman came running down the stairs screaming one of the towers had falle n. At first everyone thought she was l ying,Griffith said. Then all at o nce everyone started running for the exits. A woman fell in front of me. I knew I would be next because n ow there was a stampede behind m e. She caught hold of the stair rail and hung on. I didnt survive the tower to be trampled to death in as ubway,she thought,and screamed stopas loud as she could. The crowd paused for a fraction of an instant,just long enough for the fallen woman to regain her feet. Back up in the street,Griffith said the scene was surreal. I thought a v olcano had erupted,thats how t hick the dust was. The air was so bad she took off her half slip and wrapped it around her face. She was told to go to the South Street Sea Port where transportation would be waiting. But there was not ransport,Griffith said. B y this time she had blisters on her feet. Im not complaining,she said. There were people who were b arefoot and bleeding. The crowd was anxious,excited a nd confused,but almost everyone was thoughtful of one another, G riffith said. One thing that stands out in her mind are the people who leaned outo f their apartment windows as the crowds walked past,tossing bottles o f water and shoes down to those who needed them. Trains werent running to Queens, w here Griffith lived,so she headed to the Bronx and her mothers house. The ride was a blur. Wrapped up i n her thoughts,she not only missed her stop,but ended up in the train y ard. After visiting with her mother, Griffith headed home to Queens once the subway began working. She got home at about 7 p.m. I t was only then that the horror sank in and she felt the bruises shed gotten in the subway melee. For the first time she began to cry. Griffith said 13 people on her floor were killed. She thinks of two in particular. O ne of her co-workers was a big, heavy fellow,confined to a wheelchair. Because he couldnt navigate the stairs,he waited at the elevator hoping for a miracle as everyonee lse left. Griffith,whose story had been pouring out,suddenly paused a moment,then said quietly,One of his friends stayed with him by thee levator,so he wouldnt be alone. Neither one survived. B lue Cross/ Blue Shield gave e veryone three months off with pay. Eventually the company re-opened o ffices in Manhattan. Griffith went back to work,but two additional incidents within ay ear of 9/11 proved to be too much a construction crane crashed t hrough a wall on her floor; then a crazed gunman,jealous about an affair his wife was having with herb oss,shot and killed them both. Griffith heard the shots at her desk. She could no longer live in New Y ork. To this day,in fact,she says she cant even think of visiting the c ity. She had trouble sleeping and couldnt focus on her work. Even transferring to Pennsylvania didnt help and she went on disability. She still sees a counselor. Telling h er story openly is part of her treatment. I still get chills talking about it, she said,ut at least now I can talk about it.

Each year the Gala,a weekend-long event, c onstists of multiple events that bring together close to a thousand community members,businesses and organizations. Each part of the e vent provides funds for the development and benefit of Florida Hospitals in both Highlands and Hardee County. This year,pediatrics is the focus in S ebring,Lund said. With numerous successful years under their belt,the Florida Foundation and FHHD are confident that this years Gala will continue to p rovide funds for the development and growth of both Florida Hospital Heartland and Flordia Hospital Wachula. Our mission is an 18-month one ... we wanted to help raise $200,000 within the next 18 months and the Gala plays a huge role in t hat,Foundation Excecuive Director Jamie Bateman said Friday morning. According to Bateman,the Gala has helped bring together a number of projects,including a $460,000 Heart Vascular center expansion at the Sebring location,an $80,000 lab renova-t ion at the Wauchula Florida Hospital branch and a $185,000 operating room overhaul at the Lake Placid Florida Hospital location.

The tournament will be held at the Sun N Lake Golf Course. She stated that both courses will be open for play during the tournament. R egistration will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. T he Foundation Gala rounds out the weekend with the Jarrett-sponsored 5K Run/Walk.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe skies broke open in a bursting array of lightning to suspend Friday nights Moore Haven at Lake Placid matchup, after the Terriers had broke open a scoreless affair in the second quarter. The two teams battled through to a 0-0 tie over the first 12 minutes of play. But while the Green Dragons gave themselves some scoring chances, miscues and penalties, along with the Moore Haven defense, left them for naught. The Terriers, meanwhile, scored after a blocked punt gave them great field position and added two other scores including a fade pattern into the corner of the end zone in the second quarter to go into the half with a 19-0 lead. After a halftime of talk and adjustments made, Lake Placid looked to turn things around. But with the storm alert indicators revealing the evident lightning in the area, and with no let-up in sight, the crew of officials suspended play. It is now in the hands of the FHSAAas to what comes next. With Moore Haven entering itsdistrict schedule this week, and the Dragons their own the following week, finishing this particular game seems an unlikely decision. Rather, the choice more Special to the News-SunSEBRING While many players say billiards is a game of skill and very little physical strength is needed, then they have not met Herb Adkins of Avon Park. Adkins, who has cerebral palsy, uses a walker to maneuver around the pool table. His arms hold up his body since his legs are immobile. This amount of strength is incredible especially when an athlete is playing three games of billiards non-stop for 11 hours like Adkins had to do on Saturday, Sept. 1, during the Special STARS Billiards Tournament at Cue Time Billiards. Adkins practiced with Special STARS for an hour on two Saturdays prior to the tourney and even practiced on his own during the week. Each practice conditioned his body and he became stronger. I dont need physical therapy if I keep playing pool, Adkins chuckled as he wiped the sweat from his forehead that was running into his eye. Adkins aims his cue stick at the cue ball by carefully leaning his walker onto the table so his slender body presses against it for him to shoot. He does this while still using his arms to hold his weight up. After shooting, he balances himself back up so he can drag his feet with the walker to his next shot SPORTS B SE CTION Inside This Section Area volleyball roundup . . .4B FTA September activities . . .3B D oings at the YMCA . . .3B FREE golf at Sun N Lake . . .3B News-Sun Sunday, September 9, 2012 Courtesy photo Special STARS athlete Herb Adkins, of Avon Park, prepares to set up his shot in billiards as he carefully balances himself on his walker.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWAUCHULA Avon Park head coach Lee Brown spoke after last weeks game about his offense needing to find itsrhythm. With any new coach and system, adjustments are part of the process, and it still may take a bit for the Red D evils to fully get into their groove, but despite a 37-0 loss at Hardee Friday night, there were some positive signs toward that end. Things started out rather rough, with a three and out for Avon Park to start the g ame. The Wildcats then marched down on a short field before Keyonte Holley burst in from t wo yards out for a 6-0 lead less than six minutes into the g ame. After a negative running play to start their next possession, things got even more negative as Waylan Pleger stepped in front of a Derrick Hawthorne pass over the middle and picked it off, gett ing Hardee the ball back at the Devil 44. Quarterback Chris Johnson t hen connected with Tristen Lanier for 23 yards and Holley broke through on the next play for a 21-yard scori ng run. K eyon Brown charged over the goal line for the twopoint conversion and it was quickly 14-0 with 4:55 left in the opening quarter. But then things started to shift. Avon Park sustained a 10play drive, utilizing the spread passing game to chip away yardage. Quarterback Ryan Dick hit Steven Roberts for a 12-yard gain, then Dick was on the receiving end of a Hawthorne pass for 10 yards. Hawthorne then found D aris Williams for a 10-yard gain to get it to the Wildcat 30. The fortunes took a turn, h owever, as another pass over the middle was deflected and then snared by lineDevils still searching for rhythm See AP, Page 4B C ourtesy photo Kinsley White shows off her third-place trophy in theF emale 7-Year Old division at last weekends IronKids N ationals in Des Moines, Iowa. By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comIs this heaven? S uch was Shoeless Joe Jacksons question to Ray Kinsella in the iconic story Field of Dreams. Kinsella replied with somewhat of a chuckle, No, its Iowa. Well, for traithlon enthusiasts at the end of summer, Iowa might asw ell be a little slice of heaven. A nd having the chance to take in a bit of that, as well as show themselves proud, were three local youngsters who qualified and made the journey to Des Moines last weekend for the IronKids Nationals competition. Kinsley White, Bud Cox and Chase Doty had each earned their trip and made the 1,400-mile journey to the heart of the Midwest. The upper 80-degree temperatures were remeniscent of home for these Heartland kids, sans the humidity, and the usual burgeoning throng of competitors wouldnt have seemed all that different either. Although, these were kids who, like themselves, had qualified to get there. So, while on the surface it was a familiar setting, the competition itself would be that much tougher. Or at least one would h ave thought as much, though it didnt show in the results for our little trio. In the Junior, 6-8-year olds, kids swam 50 yards, biked two miles and ran 500 yards to the finish. W hite and Cox were racing in this division, w ith it also broken down into age and gender categ ories.

By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Blue Streaks were unable to hold on to an early 5-0 and 8-7 halftime lead, as the visiting Frostproof Bulldogs shut down the Sebring offense in the second half while scoring twice to win 19-8. e didnt too badly, said Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott. We had focus to start, but again when you lose that focus and dont do your job, things happen and we did not do our job. After Sebring started the game with a three-and-out, the Blue Streak defense forced Frostproof to punt after three plays. Sebrings first break of the game came when Arthur Williams shot around the edge and deflected Frostproofs punt, giving Sebring the ball on Frostproofs 33. They then managed to get the ball to Frostproofs 18 before being forced to kick a 36-yard field to take a 3-0 lead. Both Frostproof and Sebring were forced to punt on their next possessions after three plays. Williams nearly blocked his second punt and Sebrings own punt put Frostproof back on their own 10. Again the Streak defense held, allowing only one yard on three plays and forcing Frostproof to punt again. This time the ball was snapped over the head of punter and sailed out of the end zone for a safety. Leading 5-0, Sebring started their next drive on Frostroofs 37 and drove down to the 10 on what would be their longest drive of the night. From there, the drive got mired down and Sebring lost the ball on a fumble. Frostproof recovered the ball on their 21 with a little over six minutes left in the first half. The Bulldogs then made their first big play of the game. On third and 16 from their own 15, Gaines was able to connect on a long pass with Dewayne Hobbs-Larkin for 50 yards, putting the ball on Sebrings 36. Gaines completed the drive a few plays later with a 23yard run up the middle to put Frostproof ahead 7-5. Sebring countered when Ladante Harris ripped off a 60-yard kickoff return to put the ball in Bulldog territory. The Blue Streaks managed to get the ball to the Streaks cant keep Bulldogs at bay See SEBRING, Page 4B Terriers, lightning get best of the Green Dragons See DRAGONS, Page 4B

Some players really gave me a workout by making me walk around the table, he said. Anormal player would most likely not even perspire playing the game, but Adkins was drenched from head to toe. His shirt was soaking wet with sweat after his billiard workout last Saturday. I am exhausted, Adkins admitted. I know I will sleep good tonight when I get home. A dkins accomplished a g reat feat in billiards but his workout was not over that day because he still had to use his walker to get out to the van that took him home and then unload. He lives independently in his own place and maneuvers a round his home with the walker or crawls. Adkins does have a wheelchair but he chooses to keep his body in good physical condition by using the walker. Some people think I am being stubborn but I just want to keep doing what I can for as long as I can, Adkins said. Adkins played in the S killed Level which is a more advanced level of billiards. There were 13 athletes in this division and Adkins placed fourth. He worked his way up the ladder by playing three different opponents before finally getting beat in the sing le-elimination tournament. Im just happy I made it through the tournament. Getting fourth is better than I did last year, Adkins proudly claimed. Although he did not receive a trophy, he did win a m edal for his efforts. Special STARS hosted the seventh annual billiard tournament at Cue Time this year with 45 athletes competing. There were four levels Beginners, Middle, Skilled and Masters. At the Masters Level, the athletes play by all the rules as regular billiard competitors. In the Skilled Level, players dont have to call the pockets since they are still learning the rules of the game. Aladder was designed for the advanced players competition. T he Middle and Beginners l evels are based around a ball count instead of a win/loses ituation. The beginners use a stick w ith a cue ball attached at the end while the middle level actually uses a regular pool stick but they do play ball in hand which means they can place the cue ball anywhere they want on the table. Both of these levels help the athlete to focus on teaching them to aim the ball in the pocket. Trophies were presented to the best three athletes in all four levels. Ribbons were presented to various divisions within the beginners levels and medals were handed out to the advance players. This year, Cue Time Billiards owner Chuck White surprised the special athletes by offering a free drawing for a new cue stick. Special STARS athlete Amelia Titus won the stick. All athletes were eligible. Trophy winners in the Beginners Level were Jacquelyn Furry, first; Maricel Moreno, second; and Megan Eisnaugle, third. They were all from Sebring. Middle Level trophy winners were Sara Canali, of Sebring, first; Katie Gibson, of Avon Park, second; and Mac Smith, of Sebring, third. I n the Skilled Level, the trophy winners were NicoleL ewis, first; Brian Harrison, second; and Emily Lavely, third. All are from Sebring. The trophy winners in the M asters Level were Eddie Thomas, of Avon Park, first; A melia Titus, of Avon Park, second; and Owen Barnhill, of Sebring, third. Continued from 1B S TARS cue it up, Adkins inspires and completed her bike portion in 9:18, tying her for second for the stage. She then finished her run in 2:54 for a 16:18 total that placed her third among 46 Female 7-year olds and 81st out of 272 racers in theJ unior Female Division overall. Cox, similarly, was tied for first in his swim stage, at 47 seconds, and tied for second in the bike stage, at 7:57. His final run was done in 2:48, totaling 14:42 to take sixth out of 50 Male 7-year olds and 20th out of 272 in the Junior Male Division. Doty, racing in the Intermediate Division, ages 9-11, would have to swim 150 yards, bike four miles and run one mile. His swim time of 2:28 tied for first and his 12:55 bike time tied for second, before he finished off with a 7:40 run time for a 25:53 total. This put him 12th out of 55 spots in the Male 11-year olds, and 25th out of 339 in the overall Intermediate Division. Great jobs by each of these kids, living out a great experience with many more likely to come perhaps e ven some return trips to heaven, er, um, Iowa.

C M Y K Courtesy photo The Lady Pride of Highlands UPrep won three out of four games in their first volleyball match of the season to defeat the visiting Sonrise Christian School of Lakeland. This years team is coached by Shannon Fassler Cleveland, UPreps Business Manager and Carolyn Cwalinski, graduate of the Class of 2011. Highlands UPrep has its next home match Friday, Sept. 7, at 5:30 p.m. against The Ahfachkee School. Frostproof 26 before losing 12 yards on a sack, to bring Hunter Livingston in to attempt a 48-yard field goal. The kick had just enough distance, caroming off the crossbar and through the uprights to hand Sebring an 8-7 lead going into the half. Frostproof was forced to punt to start the second half and Sebring started their first drive from their 38. They made it to midfield, but two fumbled snaps would force Sebring to punt the ball back. This would be the last time the Sebring offense would approach midfield in the game. Frostproofs offense gathered steam as it organized a 75-yard drive that resulted ina two-yard touchdown run by Cecil Cherry. The two-point conversion failed as Frostproof regained the lead 13-8. After forcing Sebring to punt, the resulting short punt put Frostproof on Sebrings 38-yard line. Moving the ball to the 23, Frostproof looked to put another score on the board, but Williams picked off a Gaines pass at the 5 and returned it to the 38 to stop the Frostproof threat. Sebring fumbled on the next play, however, to give the ball back to Frostproof on the Blue Streak 44. This time Frostproof only needed one play to score as Trevis Herrington took it in on a 44-yard run. I cant put my finger on it, said Scott. I wish I could (about the mistakes when close to scoring) because I think we would be 2-0 instead of 0-2. Its not an 0-2 team in there, but mistakes hurt and weve got to stop it. It does not get much easier for Sebring next week as they are on the road to play the Hardee Wildcats. Hardee is 2-1 with wins over Lake Placid and Avon Park and a narrow loss to perennial power Ft. Meade. By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON N ews-Sun correspondentF ROSTPROOF The Lady Blue Streaks traveled up to Frostproof to beat the Lady Bulldogs for the second time in a week on Thursday night. Though it was a slow, rough start for the Streaks. e started off slow said head coach Venessa Sinness. But we worked into a much better consistency C onsistency seemed to be the most of the teamsstruggle during the night. Sebring started out the first set with a 6-1 run over the Bulldogs, but that streak c ame to a sudden halt. Akill by senior Paige L ewis tied up the score 111 1, but Frostproof again retaliated. In the blink of an eye, the Blue Streaks were down 1613 before a kill by Bella Carabello changed the momentum. This latest shift helped carry the Streaks to win the first set 25-21. T he high from the win quickly turned to a low with the slow start of the second set. Sebring was down 4-2 early on until a nine-point serving run by junior setter Lindsey Whittington turned the momentum back to their side. At that point, it seemed that the Lady Streaks picked up speed finishing off the set 25-17. F inally by the third set, the Blue Streaks came to life. Freshman Ansley Selander started off the set with an ace to get the Streaks fired up. Points were continuing to increase for Sebring as the set went on. The atmosphere on the court gradually grew more relaxed and put together as t hey began to play as one. Three consecutive scores put the Streaks firmly in control and on a roll. An ace by Jordan Hinkle, kill by Hannah Tucker and solo block by Whittington carried the momentum even higher to finish out the match with a final score of 25-12. I think the biggest thing was that they found their own rhythm, says Sinness. Sinness threw a curveball at her squad by substituting in some of the younger players to see just how well they would be able to adjust. Were going to have to l earn to adjust and change to the teams we that playa gainst, Sinness said. So thats why I was making us move. T he overall statistics of the night were fairly impressive. Serving was one of the key aspects of Thursday nights game. Whittington finished the night with six aces, followed by Hinkle and Selander who shared three. Allie Mann led the team with 13 digs, followed by Carabello and Selander who each had six. Carabello totaled nine kills, Hinkle had six, Lewis three and Meghan Lollis two. At the net, Cailyn Webb stayed strong with three blocks, Whittington and Lollis shared two and Hannah Lollis had one. Whittington had a total of 22 assists on the night. The Blue Streaks ne xt travel to take on the LadyW ildcats of Hardee Tuesday, Sept. 11. I n other area volleyball action from Thursday, Lake P lacid also pulled off a repeat. H aving swept past Clewiston at home on Tuesday, Aug. 28, the Lady Dragons made it another three-game sweep over the Tigers on the road Thursday The old Heartland Christian Crusaders have changed to the Highlands UPrep Pride got their makeover off to a great start with a four-set win over Sonrise Christian of Lakeland. Avon Park wasnt quite so fortunate, however, as they fell in four sets at All Saints in Winter Haven. On the college level, the Lady Panthers of South Florida State College were impressive in a dominating, three-set sweep of visiting Florida Christian College.

But the Avon Park defense stiffened, as a pass went incomplete and three straight running plays were stopped short of the goal line, getting the ball back on downs at their own two. After a no-gainer on the first play, Dick hit Williams for a 19-yard gain to give the offense some breathing room and end the opening frame. T he second quarter started positively, with a Dick to Damien Braswell 10-yard pass, but a penalty brought it back. Dick and Williams then connected for 11 yards and Braswell was found again for another eight-yard gain. But another penalty, two incompletions and a negative yardage pass play brought the drive to a standstill and gave the ball back. The defense bent some on the next Wildcat drive, with Aaron Barker and Holley moving the chains on the ground. But then it was the Devils turn for a big defensive play as Jarviel Hart picked off a Johnson pass at the Avon Park 42. Aroughing the passer p enalty moved it to the Hardee 43 and, after an incomplete and an offsides call, Dick found Braswell for s even yards. On second-and-goal at the W ildcat three, Dick was f lushed out of the pocket and on his ensuing scramble, raced into the end zone. But the play was called back on a hold, from the spot of the foul, making it second and goal from the 23. Anine-yard loss on a sack was followed by an incompletion, making it fourth-andgoal from the 32. Alittle razzle-dazzle play then caught Hardee flatfooted as Dick fired one toward the sideline where Braswell caught it. Braswell then unleashed a pass downfield to a wide open Roberts for another apparent score. That too was called back as it was ruled that the initial pass to Braswell was a forward pass, thus making the next forward pass illegal. The Wildcats wouldnt do anything with their next pos-s ession, being held to threeand-out, but then so were the Devils when they had it next. With the ball again, at the A von Park 36 after a fake punt came up just short of a f irst down, Hardee saw T immy Steedly run for five yards, with another five yards tacked on for a facemask. Johnson found Lanier for 12 yards and then ran himself for seven. Steedly picked up six on the ground to get it to the three, before Brown took it in for a 21-0 advantage with just 18.9 second left in the half. But after the quick, early double score, the Avon Park defense had held itsown and the offense had created some scoring chances, making the play on the field seem a lot more even than the scoreboard showed. But with the onset of the second half, the Wildcats reasserted themselves, going on a 15-play, 80-yard drive that would eat up 7:11 of the clock, with Brown doing the honors from six yards out fora 28-0 lead and taking the wind out of the Red Devil s ails. Avon Park would force a fumble and get the ball back deep in itsown territory e arly in the fourth. But they were so backed u p that a snap miscue resulted in a safety to make it 300 And later in the final period, Brown got himself another touchdown, recovering a fumble and running it back for the final score to set the running clock in motion. Adowner of a finish after what had been, in spots, an inspiring first half. But something to certainly build on as the team readies this week in practice for a Friday date at Mulberry.

In the comingm onths thell probably encounter many unfamiliar expenses and many financial temptations. If t here not careful,a few ill-thought decisions made nowc ould damage their credit for years to come. H ere are several actions your kids can take to build good financial habits a nd strong credit and a few minefields to watch out for: Probably the most fundamental tool t o for young adults to help manage their finances is a basic checking a ccount and debit card. A few tips to pass along: Look for a bank/credit union that charges no monthly usage fee,doesnt require minimum balances and has con-v eniently located ATMs so you dont rack up out-of-network ATM charges. Enter all transactions in the check register and review your account online regularly to know when deposits,c hecks,purchases and automatic payments have cleared. Dont write checks or make debit card purchases unless the current balance will cover them many transact ions now clear instantaneously. Banks must ask whether you want overdraft protection. If you opt for coverage,understand that overdrafts can be expensive up to $35 or more pert ransaction. Request text or email alerts when your balance drops below a certain level,checks or deposits clear,or payments are due. C redit cards for young adults can be a useful tool,but they must be used r esponsibly. By law,people under 21 must have a parent or other responsible adult cosign credit card accounts unless they can prove sufficient income to repay the debt. If you allow your childt o become an authorized user or joint account holder on one of your a ccounts,remember that any account activity,good or bad,goes on both your credit reports,so careful monitoring isc ritical. Another way to build credit history is t o start out with a securedcredit card a card linked to an account into which you deposit money.Typically y ou can charge up to the amount youve deposited and then replenish the account with more funds. After theve made several on-time payments,have your kid ask the lendert o convert it to an unsecured card,or to at least add an unsecured amount to the account. Just make sure that the lender agrees to report your payment history to atl east one of the three credit bureaus; otherwise,the account does nothing to i mprove your credit. If they qualify for an unsecured credit card,have your kids follow these guidelines: Always make at least the minimum p ayment on time each month. Strive to pay off the full balance e ach month; otherwise,the accumulated interest will add significantly to your repayment amount. Avoid using credit cards for cash advances,which often incur upfront f ees and begin accruing interest immediately. Look for a card with no annual fee a nd also compare cash advance,late payment,balance transfer,over-thelimit and other fees.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunLAKELAND With backto-back membership meetings last week,the memberso f Indian River Federal Credit Union and Bay Pines Federal Credit Union both overwhelmingly voted in favor of the merger withM idFlorida Credit Union. Of the votes cast,84 percent of the Indian River votesa nd 87 percent of the Bay Pines votes were in support of the decision to merge withM idFlorida,the fifth largest credit union in the state. The approval of these two mergers is a positive outcome for everyone involved fromt he staff to the membership to the communities we serve. W e look forward to introducing our competitive rates, affordable products and convenient services to a broader service area,spanningF lorida coast to coast,said Kevin Jones,president and C EO of MidFlorida. While branching out to the east coast of the state isu ncharted territory for us,its an exciting opportunity that b rings us one step closer to our goal of becoming a regional credit union. B oth credit unions began operating as a division of MidFlorida on Sept. 1,but the conversion of accounts will take place at a later date. U ntil the account records are converted,members of each credit union will continue to use their respective branches for service. The Indian River conversion is tentatively scheduledf or late 2012 or early 2013, while the Bay Pines conversion is slated for early 2013. After the account conversions,all members of bothc redit unions will have access to MidFloridas branch network and its prod-u cts and services. MidFlorida is a state-chartered financial institutionh eadquartered in Lakeland. With the completion of the t wo mergers,it will serve approximately 190,000 members with assets moret han $1.8 billion through a network of 38 branches, m ore than 60 ATMs,and through its website,midflorida.com.

Seminar set f or small b usinesses 96,000J obs added by U.S. employers last month 41,000l ess jobs created in June & July than expected 39,000j obs cut by governments in June & July 43s traight months with jobless rate higher than 8% By the numbers WASHINGTON (AP employers added 96,000 jobs lastm onth,a weak figure that could slow the momentum President Barack Obama hoped to gain from his speech Thursday night to the Democratic National Convention. T he unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent from 8.3 p ercent in July. But that was only because more people gave up looking for jobs.P eople who are out of work are counted as unemployed o nly if there looking for a job. The government also said Friday that 41,000 fewer jobs were created in July and Junet han first estimated. The economy has added just 139,000 jobs a m onth since the start of the year,below 2011s average of 153,000. Cash-short governments were a key r eason the job market was weaker in June and July than first estimated. Federal,state and local governments cut 39,000 jobs in those months abovet he earlier estimate of 18,000. In previous recoveries,governments have typically added jobs,not shed them. Fridays report was discouraging throughout.H ourly pay fell,manufacturers cut the most jobs in two y ears and the number of people in the work force dropped to its lowest level in3 1 years. Investors anticipate the F ederal Reserve will unveil a new bond-buying program at its meeting next week to try to lift the economy.The goal of the bond purchases wouldb e to lower long-term interest rates to encourage borrowing and s pending. This weak jobs report is going to feed into (the Feds) argument that the economy is growing at a sub-p ar pace,said John Silvia,chief economist at Wells Fargo. Unemployment numbers dont offer much good news Hourly pay fell, m anufacturers cut the most jobs in two years and the number of people in the work force dropped to its lowest level in 31 years.

The answer may surprise you. Shrews h old nearly 10 percent of their mass in their brains. Many folks may not even know what a shrew is because it is not the most well-known of creatures. Buts hrews are actually amazing and unique animals. There a re 385 species of shrew and they are located all over the planet. E ven though the shrew has the appearance of a rodent,it i s not considered one. In fact, they are not considered to be related to rodents at all. The tiny mammal is a member of the family Soricidae. It isc onsidered an insectivore and feeds mainly on insects but w ill eat other small mammals,seeds,nuts,worms and a variety of other foods locate d in leaf litter and other vegetation. A shres feet sport five toes,whereas rodents have four. Another differenceb etween species is the teeth. Shrews have sharp,spike-like teeth. Rodents have front incisors made for gnawing. Shrews are small,no biggert han a mouse,have small eyes with poor vision and are equipped with excellent hearing and sense of smell. These tiny creatures do not h ave a tiny appetite. They are voracious eaters and have a high metabolic rate. They need to consume 80 to 90 percent of their own body weight in food every day.M ost shrews are terrestrial. Different species have vario us talents such as climbing trees,living underground and hunting in water. All shrewsa re territorial and will drive off rivals that invade their a rea. They are only social when it is time to mate. Shrews mate all year long, except in colder climates,and females can have up to 10 lit-t ers a year. The gestation period can be from 17 to 32 d ays and a litter usually consists of from two to four young. The mother can a chieve pregnancy shortly after the birth of her litter, s ometimes as few as two or three days later. Shrews usually build their n ests underneath something such as a rock or log. Many s pecies form underground tunnels or take over tunnels made by other creatures. Shrews will utilize building foundations if other nestings ites are not available. They line their nests with a layer of v egetation and fur. Shrews are considered to be one of the most unusual m ammals. Some species of shrew are venomous. Their v enom contains compounds that could kill 200 mice. It is injected through grooves int heir teeth instead of fangs. There are other chemicals c ontained in shrew venom that are useful in treatment of blood pressure,neuromuscular diseases and migraine headaches. The saliva of thec reature contains a component that may be useful in t reating ovarian cancer. Shrews are the only terrestrial mammals that are know t o use echolocation. Some species emit a series of ultrasonic squeaks that are used at close range to investigate their habitats. O ne of the species of shrew found in Florida is the Southern Short-tailed Shrew. This tiny critter is gray with hints of brown or black andh as a short tail and a long, pointed snout. The ears are so small they are hidden by fur. They measure from three to five inches in length andw eigh about eight grams. This species is equipped with venom in the saliva which is injected into prey. This venom is not lethal to humans. T hese creatures are well adapted for digging with s trong,wide front feet. They burrow in soft soil at about 30 centimeters per minute.T he burrow is constructed in two layers,one near the surf ace and the other deeper under ground. The shrew will share its burrow with other individuals during the breeding season. T hey usually hunt at night and have a diet of insects, v egetation,spiders,mollusks, vertebrates,crustaceans, snails,and larvae. Their preda tors include hawks,owls, foxes,skunks,snakes and cats. However,the greatest threat to these tiny mammals is loss and degradation ofh abitat. Development that reduces ground debris such as vegetation and wood along with drying of soils is detrimental to shrew populations. A nother challenge for the shrew is a high feral and domestic cat population. With more and more of these predators on the prowl,the shrewi s having a tough time surviving.D id you know?The pygmy shrew is the s mallest mammal in North America,averaging only two centimeters in length,aboutt he width of a quarter. Due to the extreme a mount of energy shrews use up by their constant activity, they will starve to death ift hey do not eat every three hours.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunA small group of Highlands County Master Gardeners made an educational field trip to Fort Pierce to explore the LinearG ardens of the Indian River Research Center. The group received red carpettreatment with personal tours of both the Linear and Teaching Gardens. T he Linear Garden may be only three feet wide but it is 2,426 feet long (nearly half a mile) and is therefore affectionately called the Linear Garden.I t spans the entire length of South Rock Road. The garden includes approxim ately 247 different species of trees,palms,shrubs,groundcovers and vines. The gardenw as designed and is maintained by Dr. Sandra Wilson and her s taff. All of the materials within the garden have been donated by local nurseries and growers,i ncluding one full day of labor from a local landscaping comp any to help plant the larger trees. Preparation for the garden began in August of 2005 but collection of material for theg arden began several years prior to implementation. T he garden was designed to showcase specimen plants and display other common land-s cape plants utilized in the South-Central Florida region w ith attention to foliage type, color and size in addition to flowering times and color prov iding year-round interest regardless of the season. The first date of installation was Sept. 29,2005 and though the garden is young,it is flour-i shing and provides a wonderful scenic drive along South Rock Road. The Master Gardeners were introduced to the Linear Gardenm onths ago through a virtual tour and interactive web tool t hat was designed and developed by County Extensiond irector Mike Jensen. The webbased interactive tool provides g ames,photos and interactions to learn common names,scientific names and plant families for more than a 100 of the most commercially used plants thata re part of the Linear Garden. Jensen said,Use of interactive tools such as the Wheel of Flora,flash cards,and the plant carousel,help to make learningm emorization fun,and very much like playing a game.The Master Gardeners used the software to learn about the garden, visualize the plants and begin to l earn the scientific names and families of plants. According to field trip participant and Master Gardener president Hal White,The webi nteractions enhanced the learning experience at the site. The pre-trip planning and software interactions help to make learning fun,preparedp articipants for the field trip,and focused learning at the site.

Hahn has been enjoying a warm welcome from the centralF lorida town known for its international races,citrus a nd cattle industry and historic downtown shaped like a circle. T his year marks 100 years for the city of Sebring,with upcoming o fficial celebrations in October. James R. Hahn P roductions has been in demand,providing eyecatching murals for businesses in Sebring since the company decided to expandi ts galleries there. Champion for Children Foundation chose Hahn to help revitalize and reimagine its Circle Theatre and now enjoys a new Art Nouveau marquee thatH ahn created and facilitated. Kathys Consignment B outique on South Commerce has a brand new fool-the-eyemural that looks like a large window with manuscript outfitted inf ashions from current to past decades. To coincide with the Centennial,the Hahn group is planning a huge 40-footm ural on the corner of Magnolia and South Ridgewood. Sponsors are stepping up to help make a sweeping artwork appear on a warehouse wall,that is currently a blank canvas. The owners of the warehouse and neighboring business,Eldridge Carpet One,spoke in length with Hugh Little,art agent for James R. Hahn Productions. Mike Carr and his wife, Katie,were very open to the idea and had considered h aving something artistic added to their big wall t hats just off the Circle, Hahn says. The Centennialthemed mural will be on thew est-facing wall of their warehouse. L ittle adds,Katie has a strong background in design and is excited abouta dding to the creative landscape of Sebring by helping to spearhead the Hahn m ural. One of the first sponsors t o step up to support the Centennial mural is Essential Depot. This company that sells and distributes essential oils and soap-m aking chemicals and herbs,has its headquarters in Sebring. Owners Derek Hodges and his wife Kim recently commissioned the Hahns to create an 18-foot custom mural for theirW ine Soap Bar on U.S. 27. Hahns vision for the w all includes a few icons you would expect,a vignette featuring race cars seemingly streaming from the wall,buildings well-k nown in the area and a general look to the artwork that is an ode to the heyday of Florida postcards. Oranges that seem to popo ut of the mural and a sea plane coming in for a landing,are just few of the elements that will cause passersby to slow down, park and as Hahn says hopefully stay awhile and enjoy this lovely gem-of-atown. Hahn also plans on a live paintingexhibition during the Centennial Celebration festivities. Updates and sponsorship opportunity information can be found by visiting jamesrhahn.com.

The college says a local collector who wishes to remain anonymous bought the photo in 1995 in Springfield and brought it to the college in 2007. They say theve been researching it since. It was shown publicly last month. The photo is from 1859 and appears to show the reclusive poet sitting next a friend. The college says they have good evidence its Dickinson.

C M Y K Dear Abby: Why must we walk on eggshells around our adult children? I have many friends with the samep roblem. Only one of them is able to open up and tell her kids how she feels. You advised if a daughter goes out with a bum,learn to find something good about the bum. Id like to tell that daughter the guy isa bum,or her kids and her house are a mess. But even if I criticize politely,and say very carefully how I feel, our adult children withhold their children or themselves and there goes the relationship. Is there hope to change this situation? My friends and I would like to know. Walking on Eggshells Dear Walking: As a parent,your instinct will always be to parentyour children. But after children become adults,the kind of advice you would like to deliver becomes less welcomed and the kidsno longer have to listen or abide by it. Im not sure what it is they are doing (or not doing you would like to criticize, but if it has something to do with their children,remember that parenting styles have changed with time. Its regrettable,but many families are no longer close in the way that families werea few decades ago,when the generations needed each other for baby-sitting and other kinds of help. But once the dynamics have been set,the pattern is difficult to change unless all parties are open to it and even then it can take professional help. Dear Abby: Our son,an honors student,was accepted to a prestigious Ivy League school. However,the amount of tuition was so exorbitant that the burden on our family would have been financially devastating. Since the day I made the call to turn down the universitys offer,my wife,Jenna,has refused to touch me or respond to me in any way. She talks to me rarely and has refused to make love for more than three years. I have gone to marriage counseling (she refused to go),sought help from my clergy and repeatedly tried to get my wife to have a relationship. Although I am not a perfect husband,I have tried to make our marriage work. Jenna continues to treat me with contempt and refuses to refer to me in front of our three children by any name except he. Do you see any hope for me continuing this relationship? I hate to end this marriage before all of our kids leave home. Sad in Syracuse Dear Sad: Did you disc uss the phone call with your wife before you made it,so you could explore other possible options together or did you call without consulting her? If its the latter,she had a right to be angry. However,to punish ones spouse for three years seems grossly excessive. And because she wont accept counseling you will have to decide whether to accept the status quo, because you appear to have been physically and emotionally abandoned. Dear Abby: A friend from work has a boyfriend who constantly cheats and lies to her. She cries to me about it, and I cant help but get annoyed because it happens over and over.A week later, she loves him again and forgives him. She wants me and my boyfriend to go out on a double date. How can I avoid it without hurting her feelings? Should I tell her the truth,that I want nothing to do with that dirtbag,or say Im too busy? Shoulder to Cry on in Florida Dear Shoulder: Dont call her boyfriend a dirtbag or any other names,although they are probably accurate. Just thank her for thinking of it but tell her that as much as you like her,knowing how he has treated her,you wouldnt be able to look him in the eye. W rite Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Taurus entering creative phase A Bible story from Joshua 7,N KJV,and verse 7 caught my attention. It says,And Joshua said,Alas, Lord God,whyh ave You brought this people over the Jordan at all to deliver us into the hand of theA morites to destroy us? Oh,that we had been content,and dwelt on the others ide of the Jordan! Have you ever been in that place? I have. W e had taken steps to move from New Jersey to P ennsylvania to ease our financial situation. Ken transferred his postal posi-t ion and we had a contingent down payment on a h ouse. But,nothing went right. The contingency ran out before our house sold and Ken was stuck commutingt wo hours one way to a job that was less than satisfyi ng. Why hadnt we remained content where we were,we wondered? B ut,we knew God was calling us to a different p lace. Though we had prayed,we neglected to wait and,led the way i nstead of letting him lead. In Joshuas case with the Israelites,God showed Joshua that the sins of disobedience and stealingw ere the problem. Therefore,Joshuas comment about contentment as well as our picture of contentment was skewed. T he Bible has a lot to say about contentment.In P hilippians 4:11,NKJV, the apostle Paul wrote,I havel earned to be content whatever the circumstances I can do all things through him whog ives me strength. In 1 Timothy 6: 6 it says, Godliness with contentment is g reat gain. To have Gods contentment is to be satisfied andh appy in him no matter where we are. Even in that time of discontentwhenw e are awaiting our marching orders,we can find c ontentment or satisfaction in trusting him. When our discontent w ith the status quo is a result of God nudging us a nd keeping us restless in preparation for a new adventure,we must be courageous and take action and follow him. T o be contentwhere we are when God is clearly s howing us that it is time to move on is a false contentment.It is restrictive andk eeps us in our comfort zone not willing to s tretch our wings and fly. Gods rest and contentment is not a sleepy-eyed c hild; but rather,an awakening from yawning apathy. He breathes new life into us so that we know his keeping power and arev itally alive in him. This is true contentment in active service and active waiting. Selah J an Merop is a News-Sun correspondent.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Sunday, September 9, 2012 Photo courtesy of Getty ImagesF AMILY FEATURES American families understand the importance of protecting their assets and possessions. For a growing number of homeowners and renters,protection plans provide peace of mind that their possessions can be repaired or replaced if the unexpected happens. RentersInsuranceFor about 37 million Americans,renting a house or apartment is more affordable,and sometimes even preferable,to home ownership. But there are some disadvantages to renting. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics,renters are 50 percent more likely than homeowners to be robbed. Likewise,the National Fire Protection Association reports that 270 apartment fires break out each day in the United States. While homeowners are required to have insurance against these types of problems,most renters are not. In fact,a survey by Apartments.com found that 67 percent of respondents did not have renters insurance. Why dont more renters insure their valuable possessions? Here are three common misconceptions that could be standing in the way of peace of mind. I cant afford it.The average renters insurance policy costs less than $200 per year,according to the National Association o f Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). I dont have anything worth protecting. Clothing,appliances and electronics can all be covered under renters insurance. The cost of replacing your computer,television, smart phone or gaming system will likely be higher than the cost of insuring them.Im covered by my landlords insurance. Landlords carry insurance to cover structural damage to the building,but it does not cover your personal property. Nor does it protect you from liability for structural damage you might cause. Renters insurance is one of those things you hope you never need,but accidents do happen and it pays to make sure you and your property are fully protected,said Kathy M cDonald,president,Property Solutions at Assurant Specialty Property. In addition to protecting your possessions,renters insurance can protect you against personal liability,too. If you accidentally start a kitchen fire or flood in the bathroom and it damages your apartment,or a neighbors apartment,youre the one thats liable,not your landlord.GettheRightCoverageThe amount of insurance you need will depend on what you want to protect and the types of hazards you want to safeguard against. Your insurance agent can give you specifics based on your state and the kind of policy you want. Ask questions such as:What hazards are included? Do I need a separate policy for specific circumstances?Are my roommates covered by the policy?What optional coverage is available (such as flood or earthquake coverage)?How much liability coverage is provided?Will I receive additional living expenses if I have to live elsewhere while my apartment is being repaired?Do I need additional coverage for damages or injuries caused by my pet?Does my policy cover items stolen or damaged while not on the property (i.e. stolen from your car)? McDonald recommends making sure you are covered for replacement costs. If you file a claim without replacement cost coverage,youll get paid what the item is worth now,not for the cost of replacing it with a brand new item. Its definitely worth the investment,she said. Learn more and get a quote at www.rentersecurity.com.ProtectingYourPossessionsWhether you are a renter,a homeowner or are just living with one,its likely that you have possessions that you care about. Extended service contracts can help you protect your valuable possessions from mechanical failure,breakage and other perils after the manufacturers warranty expires. Gaming systems,televisions,smartphones, tablets,laptops and other electronics are now an important part of everyday life,and you dont want to be without them for long. But when an electronic device gets damaged or simply breaks down,renters insurance wont cover it,and the manufacturers warranty might not be enough to pay for repair or replacement. Many product warranties only cover parts and labor for up to 90 days after purchase. If youve invested your hard-earned money into an expensive electronic device,you want to know you can get it repaired quickly,said Joe Erdeman,president of Assurant Solutions extended service protection business. Extended service contracts provide important coverage for the items you just cant live without. An extended service contract provides for normal wear and tear as well as accidental Take InventoryA home inventory is one of the best ways to make sure your property is fully protected. A well-documented list of your possessions will help you get the right amount of coverage to fully protect your valuables. And the information stored in your inventory could help with repair or replacement if you need it. The NAIC recommends taking these steps to create your own home inventory:Make a list of your possessions,including jewelry,electronics,fine art,family heirlooms,collections,furniture, toys,CDs,clothing,sports equipment,tools,etc.Photograph or videotape each item,and document a brief description including age,purchase price and estimated current value. Remember to open drawers and closets to document whats inside. Attach copies of original sales receipts and/or appraisal documents. Be sure to note model and serial numbers.Store your inventory and related documents in a safe,easily accessible place such as a secured online site,a fire-proof box or in a safe deposit box. You may want to share a copy with your insurance provider so he or she can make necessary updates to your coverage. Review and update your inventory annually and whenever you make a significant purchase. The NAIC offers a free mobile app that captures and electronically stores images,descriptions,bar codes and serial numbers. You can download the myHOME Scr.APP.book app for iPhone users at the App Store. damage,and provides additional coverage that your renters insurance wont cover.You get 24/7 customer and technical support,coverage for 100 percent of the parts and labor cost,and assistance from licensed and insured trade professionals. When looking for an extended service contract,ask yourself these questions.What are the terms and conditions of the coverage?Does it provide toll-free telephone and/or online access to technical support?Who pays for shipping and handling if a product must be returned?Does the contract include a no lemonpolicy?Does it provide in-home service?Does the contract include accidental damage coverage? Erdeman noted that extended warranties for computers now provide a variety of ways to get support. Online chat and telephone technical support provide services that range from basic troubleshooting to defragging drives,optimizing speed and addressing malfunctioning keys. At any time of the day or night,consumers wont be left in the dark. Help is always available to provide answers to common questions about computer troubles.
