C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK The Sebring News opened the 1980s with the headline Sebring Race headed on collision course in on Jan. 16,1980. For once,the paper said, persistent rumors about the race closing down seemed for real. The Federal Aviation Authority would no longer permit race cars and planes to share the same runways as in the past. In the future, the paper reported,the FAA would not approve closing the airport to air traffic during the event. Only the near date of the race and its acknowledged international reputation lead to the one year reprieve,the FAA said. It was the start to a decade of raceway suspense more of that story in a moment. Sebring Utilities begins cracking under stress The other developing story of note had to do with the Sebring Utilities Commission and its worsening financial situation caused largely by having to produce more electricity while adjusting to rising fuel costs. Those werent the only problems,however. SUC chairman Rex Bond was quoted in late 1980 as saying,This is the time to discuss what we have been trying to talk about for months,even years.

Doty,20,was allegedly beaten into unconsciousness at a party by two men the morning ofJ une 10. The men then loaded him into a truck and took it out to the woods,where the fire was set. Jonathan Ray Rodriguez,22,and 19-year-old K enneth Felipe,who lived at 5504 Granada Blvd. w here the fight took place, were arrested June 13 after fleeing to Orlando. They were charged with seconddegree murder,abuse of ad ead human body and tampering with physical evidence.

E xpo director Jana Filip said,During Expo 2012,we surveyed exhibitors and visitors about improving the event. The result is a moreo rganized event layout that we believe will be more accommodating for visitors and exhibitors. Weve relocated the Food Court so itsm ore central to activities, with both indoor and outdoor seating. ve also added more bleachers along the Flightline so that visitors can be more comfortable while watching the aircraft flight demonstrations. Local volunteers are a key component of the Expos success,and Filip along with Expo Assistant Lauren Moore have a variety of volunteer opportunities availa ble.

The News-Sun welcomes the opportunity to provide clarity to earlier reports. As you may or may not k now,our founder, George E. Sebring,was a deeply religious man,giv-i ng free land to all that wished to build a place of worship. The CentennialC ommittee has worked hard to have the C elebration week consist of events that would have made Mr. Sebring proud. T here are two events in particular that are a wond erful time to gather together,and involve community prayer. Wednesday,Oct. 17 at 6 p.m. will be theC ommunity Church Service at City Pier B each. This event is open for all of the community to come together,andp ray together. All denominations,churchgoers and n on-churchgoers alike are asked to join together with the community. T here will be Kentucky Fried Chicken box dinners available to the first 200 people at $5 per box; boxes will include bever-a ge.

On Friday,Oct. 19 at n oon,the Blessing of the Businesses Luncheon willb e held at the Kenilworth Lodge and is catered by the Palms of Sebring Chef Mac Gentleman. The purpose of this event is top ray for blessings on our communitys businesses. The meaning of blessings is for all to have hope and peace,no matter what thec ircumstances may be. Its interesting what blessings mean to different people. Some bless the days achievements,to bless in gratitude,to bless affirming ones life,to bless higher guidance or to bless the simple pleasures in life. Blessings take on all kinds of forms in peoples hearts. It is my understanding that the Hebrew translation of blessing means more lifeand that is wished for our community businesses. May our businesses and all who enter them be blessed with good fortune. May we be blessed with perception and competence so that we may make wise decisions in all our business ventures. May we be granted the perseverance and determination to surmount difficulty and the sincerity to be fair and honest in our chosen vocation. May our endeavors present us with opportunities for gaining meaningful experience and challenges for personal growth. May we be worthy of achieving success so that we may fulfill our responsibility of supporting and maintaining our families throughout our lives,and observe the good deed of helping those less fortunate.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunVENUS More than 100 directors of biological field stations from all over thew orld descended upon Venus,and more specifically A rchbold Biological Station, on Wednedsay for the weekend. Biological field stationsa re environmental research centers,both public and priv ate,that conduct studies of the creatures and habitats surrounding their locationf or conservation and education purposes. The attendees at the 2012 C onference for International Enviornmental Researchers, i ncluding Archbold,are members of the Organization of Biological Field Stations (OBFSan organization that helps its membershipi ncrease their effectiveness in supporting critical research,education,and outreach programs. There are numerous biological field stations throughout North Americaa nd around the world. Bill Schuster,OBFS presid ent and executive director of Black Rock Forest Consortium,was happy about the choice to come to Archbold. OBFS was thrilled to hold this years annual meeting at Archbold Biological Station. This is a wonderful field station with a greatl egacy of scientific research and training. Archbolds new LEED Platinum buildings provide an excellent example of this years theme of building bridges between science, technology,engineering,artsa nd mathematics in our field stations. These annual meetings provide opportunities to learn about new developments ins cience at other field stations around the nation and the g lobe,and help station directors collaborate and build networks to enhance our sci-e ntific infrastructure. They are a key way that OBFS helps member stations i ncrease their effectiveness and productivity in the critic al research,conservation, education,and outreach programs they conduct. This years event boasted many international attendees. OBFS members always look forward to this annual event. It gives us a chance to talk with our colleagues around the globe and share similar challenges we all have as well as the various solutionso ther stations have discovered,said Dr. Hilary Swain, e xecutive director of Archbold Biological Station. The conferences international group,led by Duke Universitys DeedraM cClearn,met to discuss Tropical Forests in a Changing World. e were very excited that scientists from as far away asI ndia,Panama,Costa Rica, Peru and Puerto Rico came to the event. The scientific community is one of the few groups that can more easily cross political boundaries and share information,M cClearn said. Archbold Biological S tation is dedicated to longterm ecological research coupled with education and con-s ervation. Our work addresses the needs of the L ake Wales Ridge and surrounding Northern Everglades,one of thew orlds most important regions for water,wildlife, and rare plants and animals, s erving as a model program for other regions around the g lobe,Swain said.

The turtle,named Good Hope after the beach in St. Croix where she was discovered,has laid 55 eggss ince arriving at the hospital in Marathon on Sept. 1. Hospital manager Bette Z irkelbach said X-rays revealed more eggs were being produced,indicatingt hat the turtle has been responding to antibiotics, w ound care and physical therapy. Some 47 eggs deemed viablewere incubated, nestled in beach sand s hipped from St. Croix,she said. Good Hope would have laid (eggs) on Good Hope beach in St. Croix,with thatS t. Croix sand,said Zirkelbach. And those h atchlings would have come out and the first thing they would have contactw ith is St. Croix sand. It cant be determined if t he eggs are fertile,however,until the traditional 60day gestation period ends. The endangered hawksbills continued improvement is good news to hospi-t al director Richie Moretti, who founded the veterinary facility dedicated solely to the treatment of sea turtles more than 25 years ago. When Good Hope came to the Turtle Hospital, it looked like we might have to amputate her front flippers,Moretti said. Buts hes getting stronger and stronger every day. With the turtle seemingly n o longer in danger of dying,hospital staff is now trying to preserve the visioni n the reptiles swollen eyes. G ood Hope was found severely injured Aug. 24 after Tropical Storm Isaacb rushed St. Croix. Officials believe the animal was r epeatedly gaffed in the front flippers,perhaps to remove fishing gear. A Virgin Islands veterinarian treated her for aw eek before local fish and wildlife officials decided to s end the animal on an American Airlines jet to the Turtle Hospital for treat-m ent.

With investment fraudc ases piling up in the weak economy,the U.S. Justice Department is holding summits around the nation to warni nvestors about the scams, which are often carried out by people with per-s onal ties to the victims. The first regional conference is set for Oct. 1 inC onnecticut,where federal prosecutors have a nnounced a flurry of fraud cases this month including that of a manw ho cheated clients from his church. Summits are a lso planned for later in the month in Cleveland, Nashville,Miami,Denver and San Francisco. e see it as a growing p roblem. We see it as a serious problem, C onnecticut U.S. Attorney David Fein said in an interview. N ationwide,federal prosecutors looking at i nvestment cases from the last two years identified 500 prosecutions that targ eted 800 defendants and involved more than $20 billion in fraud,Fein said. The Northeastern summit,hosted by the JusticeD epartment as well as the Securities and Exchange Commission,will bring together officials from agencies including theF BI as well as top federal prosecutors from neighb oring states at the Stamford campus of theU niversity of Connecticut. Topics to be addressed include case studies and the perspective of fraud victims. I nvestors can protect themselves by knowing the scam artistspersuasion tactics,said Jackie MacKnight,director ofs ocial marketing for Connecticuts Better Business Bureau. She said one question to ask is whether investment products are registered. They use psychology to try to get money from you,and a lot of time you dont recognize it because of the way they go about it,said MacKnight,who is participating in a panel discussion on investor vigilance at the conference. For victims,the crimes can be devastating. They are typically middle-class Americans,often elderly, and in many cases they lose all of their retirement savings. Particularly in cases where victims havea relationship with the fraudster through their community,they sometimes hesitate to report the crime,Fein said. re finding this is a remarkably unreported situation,Fein said. ictims are sometimes very reluctant to acknowledge it has happened. Falling victim to a scam artist can be extremely embarrassing,but it can happen to anybody, according to Daylian Cain,an assistant professor at the Yale School of Management who has done research examining why smart people make bad decisions. It is surprisingly easy to believe what we want to be true and it is surprisingly hard to say no to an adviser,said Cain,who is an invited speaker at the summit.

Two advocacy groups,Citizens for Strong Schools and Fund Education Now,have filed suits that are,essentially,intended to find out whether Article 9 of the Florida Constitution is worth thep aper its printed on. The amendment mandates that Adequate provision shall be made by law for a uniform,efficient,safe,secure, and high quality system of free publics chools that allows students to obtain a high quality education. I t was approved by Florida voters in 1998,presumably because they wanted, and didnt mind paying for,high qualitypublic schools. B ut if that was the intent,the mandate,then state lawmakers didnt get the memo. In recent years The Florida Legislature has cut funds to public education by four billion dollars,Kathleen Oropeza,of Fund Education Now,toldt he Capitol News Service. Legislators have argued that the c ourts have no business telling them how much money they have to give to schools; that funding the state budget isa legislative prerogative. If they are right,then it truly does m ean that Article 9 isnt worth the paper i s printed on,and that the definition of high qualitypublic schools is whatever the Legislature says it is. But state Supreme Court cleared the way for filers of the litigation to at leasta rgue their case before a trial judge. Ultimately,the judiciary may well decide that the Legislatures power of the pursecant be infringed upon; that Article 9 is no enforceable mandate ata ll. Even so,its a fight worth waging. e get to have our day in court. We get to present the evidence and we get to have this discussion in front of the people in the light of day,Oropeza toldC apitol News Service. We dont know whether Scott was r eally listening or not on his much-touted school tour. But at least we know that,at some point,a judge is going tol isten. A n editorial from the Gainesville Sun. Article 9 fight one worth waging It was with much fanfare that Gov. Rick Scott embarked on his listening tourof public schools recently. But in regard to the future of public education finance in this state it may be that the more important listener will be wearing judicial robes. First things first. I need t o correct something in a previous column. L ast week,when I wrote my column regarding the unrest in Libya and Egypto ver a film snippet on YouTube,I identified thef ilmmaker as an Israeli Jew named Sam Racine. I was not alone in this. O ther news sources named this person,and while there was little information to beh ad about the man,I had no reason to doubt my sources. Well,it turns out that we were all deceived by them an in question. There is no such person as Sam Racine. Instead,the man behind the controversial film has been identified asN akoula Basseley Nakoula, an Egyptian-born Coptic Christian. Nakoula,who was questioned by federal investigators,has sinceg one into hiding. Apparently the film was funded by several antiIslam groups. Controversial Florida-based preacher Terry Jones,whom you may remember got into the news for threatening tob urn a copy of the Koran, was allegedly asked to helpp romote the movie. According to an article on news.yahoo.com,Egypth as issued warrants for these two individuals and six others,charging them with harming national unity,insulting and publicly attacking Islam and spreading false information.If convicted,the accused could face the death penalty. Its a largely symbolic move,since none of the accused lives in Egypt and they are unlikely to travel there for a trial,but apparently the hope is that doing this might curb some of the anger raised over the film. There have been calls for the filmmaker to be held responsible even in this country. Ive seen where people Americans say that the makers of the film are directly responsible for the deaths of our ambassador to Libya and three others. That they should have known that affect that such a movie would have. And that knowing that they should have refrained from making it. As most people know, our freedom of speech is not without some parameters.

T he question is does this film fall into that category? I admit I am of two m inds on this one. On the one hand,fanning flames i n an already-tense situation is never a good idea. It is no secret how Muslims, especially radical ones,feel about negative portrayalso f Mohammed. No one should be surprised that there was a reaction. Dont take what Im saying as excusing the murderers of our people. Being offended is no excuse tot ake a human life. I dont care who you are. A nd that leads me to the other hand that pesky First Amendment. The one that gives us freedom of speech. Freedom fromb eing offended? We dont have that. In fact,we must resign ourselves to the fact that if we support free speech,it means wereg oing to hear things we dont like. So the question comes down to,while the filmmakers rights to make a movie offensive to Muslims are protected under the First Amendment,was it a smart thing to do? It depends on what you want to accomplish. If you want to offend those you disagree with,then this movie succeeded big time. If,however,you ever hope to reach them with the truth,then you have failed, because people who have been deliberately insulted tend not to be a receptive audience. Me,I want to teach them a better way.What about you? Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com.

Miracle League opens seasonE ditor: On behalf of Miracle League for Highlands County I would like to extend an invitation to the opening day of our 2012 season. Miracle League,in its sixth season of play here in Highlands County,is a baseball league for children and adults with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. Currently the Miracle League field,located at the Lake June ball field complex in Lake Placid,sits quietly. That changed at 9 a.m. Saturday when the cry Play ballechoed through the air. Miracle League is a noncompetitive baseball league, where the goal is for the athletes to have fun while developing the skills to play baseball as independently as possible. Each player works with a buddyfor assistance. These Angels in the Outfield,as Miracle League buddies are called,assist the players to whatever the degree necessary. Some players require more support than others while some are able to play with minimal help. The games are played on a specialized field to ensure safety and accessibility for the players. The field is the only one of its kind in our region,and has made an amazing difference with regard to the independence the athletes enjoy,as many use adapted walkers or wheelchairs for mobility. During the season youth games begin at 9 a.m.,with adult games following at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Fans and buddies are greatly appreciated throughout the season. For more information you can contact me at (863 0482,or direct your browsert o www.ml4hc.com for updated information. Also, find us on Facebook by searching for The Miracle League for Highlands County. I sincerely hope you are able to join us to cheer on the players as well as to treat yourself to a truly uplifting and positive experience! John Varady Miracle League for Highlands CountyStill have time to vote some outEditor: and that government of the people,by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.I firmly believe that it has perished from Highlands County and that it may have happened when Charles Bryan passed away. That was a sad day for the citizens as well for his family; he is greatly missed. Look at all the lame reasons the local government leaders are using to excuse the mess at the Tourist Development Council. The fact is,the citizens voted the tourist tax in with specific figure percentages for how it was to be usesd. Twentynine percent for salaries,aka administrative cost,means just that. Not 29 percent plus extra if the director and his assistant actually does something. No matter how it is figured,it is 29 percent of the total tax collected. Now they suggest to raise the tax another 1 percent,which would bring their pay to 29 percent instead of 43 percent. But dont let the citizens vote on that,it might not pass. Wait a minute,we,the commissioners can use our super vote and just change the percentage without the citizenspermission. The commissioners allowed the elite leaders they had appointed to get two to four raises a year and a few sizable raises when promoted to the next level to get some up to $80K a year,several up to $60K level and a few over $100K. They did not care what the citizens thought. Some leaders get more benefits than some employees get in salary. Citizens,watch very carefully the next very few weeks to see how your leaders vote. We have a chance to remove at least two more. But you must vote and vote wisely. Send your comment to claggwe@comcast.net Some cowards may not be able to do that. William E.

A ccording to investigators, Doty arrived at the party after m idnight Sunday,June 10. The medical examiner said Friday that no narcotics nor illegal drugs were in Dotys blood,although there was ane levated blood alcohol content level.

While Doty was on the ground,the suspects are said to have cont inued to hit Doty. They then allegedly drug him outside by his feet and left him outside. Witnesses told investigators that Doty was breathingh ard,making moaning noises and slowly moving his head. One witness attempted to wake Doty,putting a hand under his head. When theh and was pulled away,it had blood on it. N obody,however,called 911,even after Doty stopped m oving. Later,Doty,who witnesses s aid was not moving nor breathing and had become stiff,was placed in the bed ofa truck and taken to the woods where he was found t he next day.

The awareness campaign is the newest addit ion to the battle against breast cancer. Pink Army recruiting members internal affairs are in poor shape; promises made for improvements havent been kept,and ... weve slippedb adly. Marijuana rains down In the early s marijuana regularly fell out of the sky,as drug dealers dumpedb ales out of low flying planes. At least two of those planes crashed,one in a belly landing at the Sebring Airport,the other out byA rbuckle Creek bridge. Bales of marijuana dropped onto farm land owned by then Governor Bob Graham in Venus,and the Triple G Dairy. Quaalude pills weres muggled in significant amounts. One of the crashed p lanes carried 88 bales of pot and 71,000 pills. 12 Hours of Sebring ist ruly over,really,really Back to the Sebring 12 H ours of Endurance,as the race was then called. Mike Willingham was then on the Airport Authority board,as wasR uss Albritton. Both warned the FAA had the final say. From this time on,its over,Albritton said. With two years on a cont ract,Charles Mendez,a copromoter of the race,fought b ack. What would be the air authoritys attitude,he asked during a meeting,ift he FAA did agree the race could be run if the airport closed. Is it the air authority or the FAA that doesnt want f uture racing here?he asked. You have to try harder to change the FAAs decision,he told the board. e cant give you a cut a nd dried answer,Albritton replied. There are a lot of ifs. Ultimately,the air authority said,the question was whether it would operate as an airport or as a race. Sex and racing prove ah igh octane mix While the future of the race was being debated,a record number of entries participated in 1980 97c ars. Sports Illustrated and NBC news were on hand to cover the event. It turned out Hustler Magazine covered it too. W hat happened was a small group of men and women had sex on the top ofa school bus,parked near the flagpole on the track.N ot shy,they performed a variety of acts for all the world to see,even drawingn ational attention. The community was embarrassed and angry. H ighlands County Sheriff Joe Sheppard came under c riticism for not intervening. He said hed been afraid to spark a riot. O lin Shinholser,then assistant state attorney, p romised any participants who could be identified would be prosecuted by the end of the year a few men were identified andp aid fines,one was sentenced to 30 days. L ocally,public support for the race all but about disappeared. In an unofficialp oll taken by the Sebring News,70 percent of respond ents felt the race should not be continued,30 percent felt it should. O n the other hand,the Sebring City Council and Chamber of Commerce backed the race. Petitions in favor of it picked up moret han 1,000 signatures the first week. A study of the races economic impact was commissioned. The study said thed irect dollar impact on the area was more than $1.8 m illion. Just when everything seemed calm The FAA extended its p ermission to allow the race at the airport through 1982, but that didnt mean troubles were over. Due to cut backs in secur ity forces in 1981, Sheppard said,I have no alternative,but to close down the race. On Feb. 11,1981,the S ebring News reported Only a miracle can save the race. In a sort of a miracle,at the last minute law enforce-m ent officers from different parts of the state were recruited to help. O n the 25th,the paper ran the headline,s official, the Sebring 12 Hours is def-i nitely on. On again,off again M endez and the airport authority grew further apart. In 1986,the airports a dministration changed. The authority took over r unning the race and the race committee came up with a new race course design. Going into the s, the raceway seemed to ber ecovering. Short circuiting electricity I n the meantime,the Sebring Utilities Commission was having its ownp roblems. Despite borrowing money; reorganizing its s tructure,particularly the financial department; bringing in new management; and r aising fees,by 1986 the utility faced a projected shortfall of $1.6 million. The Sebring News reported Sebring residents werep aying the highest utility rates in Florida.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comS EBRING The Blue Streaks came into the night short handed and wound up on the short end of a 41-20 f inal Friday night at Firemens Field. We only have five seni ors dressed tonight because of injuries, head coach LaVaar Scott before the game. ell have to see how the young guys step up. For their part, visiting Lake Gibson was forced to be late by bus scheduling and almost didt make it at all as they drove through violent storms on their way. But whether one team was missing some players, or the other a little frazzled after a harrowing drive, it didnt show early on as both squads battled toe-to-toe in the early going. After Sebrings opening drive was stopped near midfield, the Braves had little success on the ground as consecutive one-yard gains were negated when Shawn Munson burst into the backfield to take down Tyler Brown for a two-yard loss. But the Blue Streak offense wasnt to have much more success againsta stalwart Lake Gibson defense, going three-andout on their next possession. And while the Braves were finding out they couldnt run against the Sebring front, two big plays got them on the board. On third-and-18 at their own 45, quarterback Trey Congdon connected with Eric Carter on a 39-yard pass to get it to the Blue Streak 16. After a two-yard loss, Congdon found Jordan Smith on the right sideline in the end zone for the opening score. Beckly Njohs point after split the uprights and the lead was 7-0 at the 4:53 mark of the first quarter. Afew penalties had Sebring stopping and starting on itsnext possession before Saderian Perry stepped in front of a Brandon Ferretti pass for an interception at the Blue Streak 15. Two plays later, Congdon hit Chris Clarke with a pass from the seven to make it a 14-0 game with 1:13 left in the first. After another three-andout, Munson had another big tackle in the backfield for a four-yard loss, paving the way to a three-and-out for the Braves. And then Sebring began to kick into gear. Ferretti hit Larry Scott for a six-yard gain and found Jacquae Peart for 31 yards to the Lake Gibson one. Special to the News-SunFTMYERS Dunbar got off to an easy start in defense of its District 6-4Atitle Friday night, coasting 49-0p ast a disjointed Lake Placid team that had trouble at times just getting plays off. The Tigers (3-1, 1-0 r ushed for 337 yards on 31 carries and added 60 more p assing yards while holding L ake Placid (1-3, 0-1 total yards, including 39 rushing yards on 24 carries. Sophomore tailback Marquise Bryant had 88 yards and two touchdowns, and sophomore quarterback Daniel Cobb ran for 97 yards and another score while adding two passing touchdowns to sophomore Kevanta Moses and junior Joe Williams. The Tigers also debuted another weapon in their arsenal. Senior running back Rante Baker, a transfer from Immokalee playing in his first game at Dunbar and his first game at running back since the seventh grade, had 108 yards and a touchdown on seven carries. It felt good that they gave me a chance, said Baker, who has drawn more college interest in baseball as a center fielder. At Immokalee I got playing time but not as much as I did here in my first game. The Dragons saw two firs tquarter touchdowns begin to dig their hole, though the defense would stiffen enough to allow just one more score before the half for a 21-0 deficit. But two quick Dunbar scores in the third quarter pushed the game to a running clock with the Tigers ahead 37-0. After averaging 16 penalties in its last two contests, Dunbar cut its flags to 11, for 100 yards, Friday night, while Lake Placid nearly matched that total with nine penalties, but for just 45 yards. Its been a rough go for Lake Placid since opening the regular season with a gritty, 26-12 win over Celebration.. And the road doesnt get any easier with a trip to Lakeland Christian Friday. The Vikings are 3-1 with a scoring differential of +52. By JAMIE WILLIAMS S pecial to the News-SunAVON PARK Avon Park is still showing struggles in putting points on the board as they were shut out by the visiting LaBelle Cowboys 14-0 in their first district game of t he season. In most categories on the night, the teams were pretty evenly matched as Avon Park and LaBelle both had about 180 yards of total offense. Each team also ran about 48 plays and LaBelle was flagged 14 times for 95 yards while Avon Park lost 75 yards on 10 penalties. But the main statistical difference, which would play out on the scoreboard, was that the Red Devils committed six turnovers, not including a turnover on downs that r esulted from a bad snap, compared to none by Labelle. e came into this ballgame saying as players and coaches we want to reflect on our own personal accountability, said an upbeat Avon Park head coach Lee Brown. If I make a mistake as a player, if I dont do what I was coached to do, what will be the outcome of that, because one thing is clear, the coaches do not step across the line to play The first turnover occurred on Avon Parks opening drive. They started on their own 2 4 yard and drove inside of LaBelles 20-yard line. But the Avon Park quarterback soon lost a fumble when he was sacked. The defense forced a Cowboy punt, but the punt was fumbled and LaBelle recovered the ball on the SPORTS B SE CTION Inside This Section FTA September Activities . . .3B Hog Hunts . . .3B News-Sun Sunday, September 23, 2012 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE A pair of Brittanys, Hill on the left and Cherrington on the right, defend the net Thursday night against the Manatees of the State College of Florida.

Devils turn it over to LaBelle See AP, Page 4B By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Call it a moral victory, or a boost in their collective confidence, but Thursdays loss for the Lady Panthers did show some positives. After dropping the first set to State College of Florida with a score somewhat typical of recent years, 25-14, things took a decided shift. The visiting Manatees, a perennial Suncoast Conference power, came in with a 12-3 record, with two of those losses coming at an early season tournament in Iowa a tourney that saw them go 3-2. But in Thursday nights second set, not only was South Florida State College keeping up with the taller State squad, they took an early lead and kept it. Each Manatee surge was held off with some strong defense at the net, scrambling volleys and decisive kills to push the Panthers to a 25-22 win. It would seem that this turn of events would merely awaken the visiting squad to regroup and get back into dominant form. And while they would take the final two sets, it was South Florida that seemed to take the proverbial step forward by sticking right with State College to the tune of dueling 25-18 scores. s tough, not getting the (overall Kim Crawford said. But Im seeing some good things and we are improving. Results among the county high school teams were decidedly positive Thursday, as Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring all won their matches. The Lady Devils swept past visiting Mulberry in three sets to bounce back from Tuesdays District 104Aloss at DeSoto. After a more Dr. Jekyll first set, which saw a narrow 25-20 win over the visiting Panthers, the Mr. Hyde aspect of the Devils game was unleashed with 25-9 and 25-12 wins to finish it off in dominating fashion. Teresa Devlin lead the kill parade for Avon Park with six, while Otisha Smith and Kayla Wilson added five each and Marina Torres had Panthers improving, high schools sweep See VB, Page 4B Dragons no match at Dunbar Strong first half not enough for Blue Streaks See STREAKS, Page 3B

C M Y K After an offsides pushed it a tad closer, Peart powered it in the rest of the way. With 9:12 to go in the half, Hunter Livingstons extra point had cut the lead in half to 14-7. Three straight incompletions soon ended the Braves next drive and got the ball back near the 50. A.J. Gayle rumbled for 11 yards on two carries and Peart added a five-yard gain. But then a little bit of razz le, a standard reverse to Arthur Williams, got a dose of dazzle when Williams turned it into a double reverse on his own. Sweeping around the left end, a slew of Gibson tacklers awaited. Heading back against the grain, back from where he came, Williams dashed, dodged, broke tackles, carried tacklers and somehow covered the 33 yards to the e nd zone, in what wound up being likely a 70-yard run, to make it a 14-13 game with 6:45 left in the half. The ensuing Brave drive was dealt a blow when Ezell Gammage sacked Congdon for an eight-yard loss, and t he teams soon traded possessions. Then, with Lake Gibson driving, Breon Jones picked Congdon off at the one. While not able to get much b reathing room, pushing it out to the three, it looked like a momentum shift might take place when the Sebring punters planted leg was taken out by a diving Brave. But in a first half, and game for that matter, where yellow flags were a common s ight, none we thrown and Lake Gibson took over at the 38. That was quickly moved to the 33 when Sebring was called for 12 men on the field, and it was a matter of two passes that put the B raves in the end zone again, with 27 seconds left, for a 2013 halftime lead. L ake Gibson would score again midway through the fourth on a 36-yard Thomas Boles run, and added another early in the fourth when Boles sprinted in from 44 y ards. Less than a minute after that, Brown had covered 63 yards on two carries to push the lead to 41-13 with 9:31 left to play. The Streaks would pull out another score, with Gayle tossing a halfback pass to K evin Alvarado for a 28-yard score. But with just 2:50 left in the game, it merely provided for the final margin. The better team won tonight, Scott said. But g ive us some more of our guys back and we have a whole different game. We only had two seniors in uniform on offense and three on defense, but we cant feel sorry for ourselves, he continued. I was proud of how we battled t hem in the first half, we hung right with them. But they wore us down in the seco nd half and the wheels fell off. But these kids are resilient. They kept fighting and well keep getting better Though it will be another t ough test as the team welcomes American Heritage Plantation to town Friday. The 2-1 Patriots are coming off their bye week after trouncing Lake Highland Prep 48-10. The lone loss of the season came by just three points at the hands of Jacksonville Bolles. If we dont come to pla y, they could hang 80 on us Scott said. Special to the News-Sun Southwest Florida Water Management District land managers plan to hold a series of hog hunts on District land this fall and winter to help reduce the wild hog population. Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 8, prospective hunters can purchase permits for these hunts on the Districts website at HogHunts.WaterMatters.org/ Permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis through 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, or until they are sold out. The cost is $75 for each permit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still hunts will be available. Wild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by rooting with their broad snouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed field. They also prey on native wildlife, compete with native species for food and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/or providing germination sites through rooting. The District allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when damage they cause is at unacceptable levels. Damage from hogs is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Heres where and when the hunts will be held: Alston Tract at Upper Hillsborough Preserve Pasco County Oct. 30-Nov. 1 (day hunts Flying Eagle Nature Center Citrus County Nov. 23-25 Dec. 14-16 (day hunts Hampton Tract and Closed-Areas Tracts at Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve Polk County Dec. 4-6 (day hunts CokerPrairie Tract at Edward Chance Reserve Manatee County Oct. 30-Nov. 1 (day hunts Little Manatee River Southfork Tract Manatee County Nov. 6-8 (day hunts Conner Preserve Pasco County Nov. 6-8 (day hunts LowerHillsborough RiverWilderness Preserve Hillsborough County Jan. 22-24 (night hunts Starkey Wilderness Preserve Pasco County Jan. 8-10 (night hunts DeerPrairie Creek Preserve and South Schewe Tract Dec. 11-13 March 19-21 (night hunts Deep Creek Preserve DeSoto County Nov. 27-29 (day hunts Hlpata Tastanaki Preserve Marion County Dec. 4-6 (day hunts The District-managed properties will be temporarily closed to the public during the hog hunts. Only permitted hunters will be allowed access. In addition to obtaining a permit online, maps and hunting rules of the areas where the hunts will take place are available on the Districts website at HogHunts.WaterMatters.org. This is the fifth consecutive year for the hunts. Last years hunts removed 270 hogs from four different tracts of land throughout the District. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 23, 2012Page 3B E .O.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC Auburndale Bulls at Joe Franza Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 15. The Eagles lost the first two games but took the last three with the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams remaining u ndefeated on the season. The first game featured the F lag team, which saw the visitors strike first for an early lead. But the Eagles quickly responded with a score of their own by Fred Hankerson. The offense rallied together earning another touchd own by John Alexander. The defense made their p resence known and stood s trong with key defensive plays by Romeo Castellanos, Julian Cardoso, Jordan Cook, Keldrice Legree and Willie King. But the Bulls strong offensive game led to the second loss of the season for this flag team with a final score of 2815. With the loss, the Eagles Flag team record is 3-2 and d rops them to third place in t he NFC division of the Sunshine PALLakelandL eague. The next game featured the Mighty Mights. The Eagle offense took the field focused and determined after last weeks loss to the Rattlers, with quarterback Graisin Wheelock handing off the ball to Taivion Coston and Alex Pollard. The Eagles defense fought h ard with solid tackling by Xavier Mobley, Ronnie Roberts and Coston. But the Bulls defensive stance, costly turnovers and penalties thwarted all the Eagles efforts to get into the end zone, bringing the Eagles a 48-0 loss to bring their record to 1-4 and placing them in a tie for third place in the division. The Pee Wee team was up next and started off with a 48-yard touchdown by Kasey Hawthorne in the first quarter. But the Bulls quickly responded with a score of their own to send it to halftime tied 6-6. The defense came out in the second half with key tackles by Jordan Rose, Robert Gotkiewicz, Austin Smith and Christian Ramos to shut down the Bulls. The offense then rallied together with another score by Hawthorne, and Kevin Rivera rushed 78 yards to the end zone for the final score of the day to win 18-6 and bring their record to 4-1 and stay tied for second place in the division. N ext up was the undefeated Junior Varsity which was averaging 35 points a game coming in. T aking the field on the defensive side of the ball, the E agles quickly shut down the Bulls. I n the first offensive drive of the game, running back R afael Smith rushed for 45 yards into the end zone for the first score of the day. The offense drove down the field on their next possession as well, with key yards gained by Akem JnPierre, Malcolm Jackson and Smith. Quarterback Norris Fish Taylor handed off the ball to Smith to score another touchdown for the Eagles During the Bulls next offensive drive the Eagles defense recovered a fumble to allow the offense another opportunity to drive down the field. Smith soon took it to the end zone again to make the score 18-0 at the half. The JVdefense dominated the field in the second half with three sacks by JnPierre and key tackling by Smith, Jalen Williams, CJ Berish and Malcolm Jackson. The defense only allowed one first down for the Bulls on the day. Late in the fourth quarter, the Bulls got around the end on the kickoff return to score their only touchdown but the Eagles had remained victorious with Smith stealing the show, scoring all three touchdowns for the Eagles. With the 18-6 win, the JV t eam remains undefeated at 5-0 and in first place in the division. Wrapping up the day was t he undefeated Varsity team, which struggled early and went into halftime trailing 60 Malik Taylor got things g oing in the second half, returning the kickoff to the B ulls 35-yard line. The offense was led by quarterback Donte Carpenter who rushed for 30 yards to score and tie the game. The defensive stance saw key tackles led by Austin Oppold, Chris Ramos, Sammy Smith and Taylor, which led to a key interception by Tremaine Hawthorne. Hawthorne capitalized on the next offensive drive, scoring a touchdown and Tyler Edwards nailed the kick for the 2-point conversion giving the eagles the lead 14-6 going into the fourth quarter. The Bulls responded with another score, but thed efense would hold strong and give the Eagles the third and final win of the day with a final score of 14-13. T his brings their record to 5-0 and keeps them in first place in the division. T he Lady Eagle cheerleaders kept cheering the boys on a nd kept the crowds spirited throughout the day of play. T he concession stand was a happening place and HYF would like to thank the board members and volunteers that work so hard there and on the sidelines.

Eagles take three against Bulls Devil 23. The Cowboys capitalized a few plays later on a 10yard touchdown pass from Derek Bass to Devante Ray. With the two-point conversion, the Cowboys led 80. The rest of the half was a defensive struggle as neither team was able to score. With less than two minutes left in the opening half, Avon Park momentarily scored a touchdown on a late ral-pass play. Ryan Dick threw a lateral to Damon Braswell who then threw the ball to a wide open Steven Roberts for a touchdown. The play was called back, however, when it was ruled that it was two forward passes. Undaunted, Avon Park continued to drive the ball. With the ball on LaBelles 41, Dick completed passes t o Roberts and Darius Williams for 16 and 23 yards. Williams was stopped at the Cowboy two and time ran out before they could r un another play. Turnovers continued to plague the Red Devils in t he second half. They turned the ball over on downs on their first possession and Dick was intercepted on their second possession. LaBelle was unable to capitalize on these turnovers as the Devil defense responded each time, and were forced to punt on their first three possessions of thes econd half. But that third punt was misplayed, fumbled and r ecovered by the Cowboys in Avon Park territory. LaBelle was able to dri ve the ball to get a first and goal inside the five, but again the Red Devil defense stiffened and the Cowboys were forced to kick a field goal, taking an 11-0 lead in the fourth quarter. LaBelle got the ball a few seconds later when Avon Park fumbled the kickoff return. A nd yet again, the defense prevented a Cowboy score after they missed on a 33-yard field goal attempt. Avon Park would then turn the ball over on downsa few minutes later as a bad snap on a punt resulted in a 15-yard loss and LaBelle got the ball on Avon Parks 15-yard line. Once again, LaBelle would have a first and goal inside the five, and for the second time, the Avon Park defense held them to a field goal that put LaBelle up 140 with a little over four minutes to play. But any late-game comeback was thwarted when the Devils committed their final turnover on an interception to seal the final outcome.. We can go down the list, said Brown. Two fumbled punts, two interceptions, two other fumbles. A t critical times you have six turnovers. I dont care w hat kind of club you have i n America, its tough to win when you make those kind of mistakes. Avon Park will be on the road next week as they playa rare Saturday night game against Hialeah Gardens at Milander Stadium. The Gladiators have not won a game this year, have not scored a point and are currently giving up over 50 points a game. Continued from 1B AP turnovers costly in loss four. The Devils, now 4-3 overall and 2-1 in District play, next face off with county and District rival Lake Placid on the road Tuesday. Those Lady Dragons, though, seem to be rounding into shape with one of their better matches of the young season, sweeping Frostproof on the road by 25-15, 25-17 and 25-17 scores to move to 3-0 in District 10-4A. I was really proud of how everyone played, head coach Linette Wells said. For a change, we didnt play down to our opponent and I was especially glad that for the first time this year, everyone got a chance to play The win was a nice bounce back from Tuesdays bitter loss at Sebring and would seem to have them set to welcome Avon Park on Tuesday. The Lady Blue Streaks, meanwhile, continued their five-match winning streak with a four-set win over visiting Hardee. Sebring hasnt lost a regular season contest, to date, with itsonly losses having come in tournament play. But now its down to the nitty gritty for the Streaks as they head into their District 9-6Aschedule with a Tuesday match at Kathleen and a home date Thursday with Winter Haven. Now we start the season, head coach Venessa Sinness said. Continued from 1B VB slates in District mode NEWS-SUN 385-6155

C M Y K When the last national census was taken in 2010,48p ercent of the population was classified as poor or low-income (earning less than 200 percent of the poverty level). A nyone whos ever tried to live on a low income knows how difficult it can bet o make ends meet when cost increases for essentials like healthcare,housing,f ood and energy outpace their earnings. This can be e specially challenging for seniors living on a fixed income. T he good news is there are literally thousands of federa l,state and private assistance programs designed to help seniors and others cover their basic needs. Your challenge might be finding onesf or which youre eligible. Here are a few suggestions: T he nonprofit National Council on Aging offers BenefitsCheckUp (www.ben-e fitscheckup.org),a free, confidential web-based servi ce that helps seniors and their caregivers find financial assistance for healthc are,housing,food,utilities, in-home services and much more. After answering several questions,youre issued ap ersonalized report describing programs and services for which you may be eligible,including links to their websites and applications. S everal government-sponsored programs help people w ith limited income and resources pay for medicalc overage,including Medicaid and Medicare. For a good round-up of these programs,go to www.medicare.gov and clicko n Get Financial Help. Most pharmaceutical companies offer patient assistance programs (PAPs) that provide uninsured and low-i ncome people access to prescription drugs they couldnt otherwise afford. Ask your doctor,pharmacist or health clinic for details. Other good resources include: Medicares alphabetical list of drugs available through PAPs (www.medicare.gov/pap/inde x.asp); Partnership for Prescription Assistance (www.pparx.org); RxAssist (www.rxassist.org); and NeedyMeds (www.needymeds.com). In addition,as a result of the Affordable Care Act, Medicare Part D participants who reach the so-called doughnut hole coverage gap now receive a 50 percent discount on brand-name prescription drugs and a 14 percent discount on generics. (These discounts will gradually increase until 2020 when the doughnut hole will disappear altogether.) The IRS tax code includes several benefits that target seniors (and often,other lower-income taxpayers), including: A higher standard deduction amount for most people who dont itemize deductions if they and/or their spouse are over 65 or blind. An additional tax credit for lower-income people who are over 65 or disabled and file a 1040 or 1040A tax form. (For full details and eligibility,see IRS Publication 524 at www.irs.gov.) Free tax return preparation assistance and counseling from IRS-trained volunteers is available to people over age 60,as well as lowto-moderate income folks a nd military families. IRS Publication 554 provides comprehensive helpf or seniors to prepare their tax returns. M any government-sponsored benefits,grants and financial aid programs exist to help seniors,low-income families and others pay theirb ills,including: LIHEAP (Low-Income H ome Energy Assistance Program) provides grants to help pay utility bills. To seei f you qualify,go to www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/o c s/liheap. SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance P rogram) helps millions of lower-income Americans buy nutritious food each month. Visit www.fns.usda.gov/snap for qualification require-m ents. Rental assistance for low-income families is available from several U.S. Department of Housing andU rban Development programs as well as other state a nd local agencies (see www.hud.gov/renting/index.c fm for details). Go to www.usa.gov/Citizen/Topics/ Benefits.shtml for a comprehensive overview of addi-t ional aid programs. And of course,dont forget to ask about senior discounts whenever you shop, travel or buy insurance 10p ercent here and there can really add up.

Eager buyers formed long lines Friday at Apple Inc. stores in Asia, Europe and North America to be thef irst to get their hands on the latest version of the smartphone. In London,some shoppers had camped out for a week in a queue that snaked around the block. In Hong Kong,the first customers were greeted by staff cheering,clapping,chanti-n g iPhone 5! iPhone 5!and highfiving them as they were escorted o ne-by-one through the front door. The smartphone will be on sale in the U.S. and Canada hours after its launch in Australia,Japan,Hong Kong,Singapore,Britain,France andG ermany. It will launch in 22 more countries a week later. The iPhone 5 is thinner,lighter,has a taller screen, faster processor,updated software and can work on faster fourth genera-t ionmobile networks. The handset has become a hot seller despite initial lukewarm reviews and new map software that is glitch prone. Apple received 2 million orders in the first 24 hours of announcing its release date,more than twice the number for the iPhone 4S in the same p eriod when that phone launched a year ago. I n a sign of the intense demand, police in Osaka,Japan,were investigating the theft of nearly 200 iPhones 5s,including 116 from one shop alone,Kyodo News reported. InL ondon,police sought help finding a man wanted in connection with the theft of 252 iPhone 5s from a shop in Wimbledon early Friday morning. Analysts have estimated Apple will ship as many as 10 million of the new iPhones by the end of September. S ome fans went to extremes to be among the first buyers by arriving at A pples flagship stores day ahead of the release. In downtown Sydney,Todd Foot, 24,showed up three days early to nab the coveted first spot. He spent about1 8 hours a day in a folding chair, catching a few hourssleep each night in a tent on the sidewalk. Foots dedication was largely a marketing stunt,however. He writesp roduct reviews for a technology website that will give away the phone after Foot reviews it. I just want to get the phone so I can feel it,compare it and put it on our website,he said while slumped in his chair.

C M Y K By FRAZIER MOORE A P Television WriterS ANTA CLARITA,Calif. Striding through his Las Vegas casino,tough guy Vincent Savino has a beef. ou went behind my back t o Chicago,he growls to the woman beside him. I thought we had an understanding:You run the count room,I run the casino. J ust another day in 1960 at the Savoy,home base for CBSnew drama egas. With its Sputnik chandeliers,swooping circular stairway,pleated-fabric walls ands hapely cigarette girls,The Savoy is a masterpiece of G oogie architecture and Kennedy-era glamour. And theres more.I f you were to step out its doors,you would seamlessly e ncounter the Vegas strip, complete with the Golden Nugget,the Tumbleweed Club and,for not-so-heavy hitters,a storefront boasting All Day! Bingo. Parked along the curb,of c ourse,are vintage cars from a half-century ago. All in all,its an impress ive time trip for a visitor to Santa Clarita Studios where, i n August 2012,production is cranking up on Vegas. Inside Stage 1,the scene is a bout to be shot again with Michael Chiklis,who plays Savino,as he presides over t his casino-full of 1960s-costumed gamers and staff. Its t he very first day filming on the 14,000-square-foot Savoy set,which,along with the replica of Fremont Street outside,existed only as blue-p rints,empty studio space and a slab of parking lot just a few weeks ago. (The pilot for Vegas, which airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. EDT,was shot last spring on locations in New Mexico,so this permanent n ew home wont be seen until the second episode.) T he Strip ends abruptly at a bluff as a hot wind rushes past. But the huge green scrim will allow for CGI effects to extend FremontS treetinto an illusory distance. The job called for more than being pretty. Everything on the street had to be specially engineered,says the shos production designer,Carey M eyer,standing in the neonglowing Savoy entrance. Each pole of those facades goes into the ground 15 feet, because the wind load up here is just tremendous. And theres also the risk of earth-q uakes. Inspired by a true story, egasstars Chiklis as the Chicago mobster sent to run the recently opened Savoy and who will butt heads with Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph L amb,a fourth-generation rancher whos intent on k eeping growth and corruption from spoiling his town. The real-life Lamb is por-t rayed,two-fisted and laconic,by Dennis Quaid. Its going to be an interesting dance between us, says Chiklis. You know thee nd of the story:Vegas grew and Vegas was successful. But how did it get that way, e specially when Lamb and my character are so culturall y different and diametrically opposed in so many ways? Chiklis has brought his own camera to the set on this first day in residence. Hes hares with a reporter some of the photos hes been snapping between scenes. They look like they could have been shot back in the day,right?he says. Clearly,Chiklis is pleased with his surroundings. Thatsf ortunate. If Vegasclicks with viewers,this could be his hangout for many seasons to come. But he isnt the only Vegasmember whos happy with its back-in-time environment. s a hoot,says executive producer GregWalker, walking out there and seeing the extras in their outfits, and those cars and the facades. Im pinching myself. I hadnt anticipated this kind of rush! W alkers office in the Stage 1 building overlooks a f reeway down below and, beyond it,Santa Clarita,a city of 175,000 some 30m iles north of L.A. What first appealed to me a bout the show was its idea of Vegas I hadnt seen anybody cover before,says Walker. Weve seen Vegas before then in Bugsyand The Godfather,and post1960s in Casino.But what i t finally came down to was the allure of Ralph Lamb as a character trying to preserve w hat he loved about the city, against the tidal wave of g angsters from Chicago and the East Coast. s cowboy hats vs. the f edoras,sums up Nicholas Pileggi,a fellow executive producer. Pileggi is the much-acclaimed crime reporter who wrote the booksf rom which he adapted the screenplays for Goodfellas and Casino.Hes an expert on Vegas and its dark but dazzling history. T hat history is fueling the new series,which,according to Walker,calls for mixing procedural television with a saga of rich characters in aD ickensian sprawl and doing all that in 42 minutes each episode. Walker,whose credits include Without a Trace and Smallville,says craft-i ng such a hybrid is the biggest challenge facing Vegas and not,as you might think,the difficulty and expense of its periodd etail. The period was never d aunting for me,he says, nor was it the reason to do the show. Our mantra is,s not about the tail fin of the Cadillac. T hen,sympathetically invoking The Playboy Clu a nd Pan Am two circa1960s TV dramas that flopped last season W alker adds,re not selling a period. Wre not selli ng a club or an airline. Wre selling characters and the world we believe in:1 960 Las Vegas. Its a world alive and well these days in Santa Clarita.

C M Y K T wo of the biggest myths in the arta nd antiques world are 1. thinking thaty our possessions are not worth anything and 2. thinking that your homeownersc overage automatically covers art,jewelry,and antiques. Valuable possessions,like a rt,jewelry and antiques or collectibles require special insurance coverage. I n my work appraising objects,many clients are not f ully covered for the value of their art or antiques. In my experience,a good set ofa ntique china,a collection of comic books,or grandmas s ilverware are easily worth more than $1,000. And,if you dont have the correct coverage,you are out of luck. There are two ways to get c overage for art,antiques, jewelry,and other specific v aluables and the cost for that insurance is not expensive as some uninformedf olks are led to believe. One way to get more cove rage is to buy something called an endorsement that will upgrade your existing p olicy.An endorsement to a homeowners policy might give you something like $5,000 or $10,000 of protection for jewelry and somec overage for antiques,too. It all depends. If you have questions,ask your insurance agent. For valuable art,antiques, a nd collectibles,you need to schedule these valuables and p urchase a rider,often called a n all risks rider. An all risks rider is what it sounds like. It covers all risks. Sucha rider to your existing policy covers everything that mighth appen and considers all conditions for a loss. The good news is that there are no deductibles on scheduled items. If the item,l ike a work of art or a diamond ring,is stolen,lost,or destroyed,you dot pay a deductible to get paid from the insurance company for ac laim. You get a full payout of the amount it was appraisedf or. The cost for such insurance is nominal and it is determined by the value oft he piece reflected on an appraisal. Y ou dont need some special insurance company to cover art,antiques,or col-l ectibles either. Typically, your own homeowners insura nce company can supply you with an all risks rider. Its easy. To protect your valuables with an all risks rider,youw ill need a written appraisal from an expert not just a ny appraiser but one that meets the standards set forth b y the insurance companies who is qualified to produce such a document for your insurance company. The appraiser provides the w ritten document which gives the insurance company information necessary for the piece or pieces to be covered such as identification,condi-t ion,age,and an evaluation of the market and replacement value for such a piece. Insurance appraisals that I prepare for clients alsoi nclude digital images of the art or antiques and any distinguishing marks and areaso f damage or wear. I advise clients to reconsider and reappraise valu-a bles (art,antiques,jewelry, furs,etc.) every three years a nd/or when you have a significant change in your life.

For a man who built his career on word economy,the title is pretty darned long The NationalB ook Foundations Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Still,Elmore Leonard says hes thrilled to receive one oft he literary worlds highest honors. The 86-year-old crime novelist will be presented with the medal in New York on Nov. 14,the same eveningt his years National Book Awards are announced. I was very surprised. I didnt ever count on winning this kind of an award,L eonard,with one of his trademark Virginia Slims b etween his fingers,said in an interview at his home in suburban Detroit. Ive won a lot of awards,but not like this one. Hell be introduced by British novelist Martin Amisa nd deliver remarks that organizers have requested he limit to six minutes. Asked if hed abide by that request,Leonard took a dragf rom his cigarette and said: Oh yeah. In taking home the National Book Foundations lifetime achievement award,L eonard joins a list of past recipient that includes Ray Bradbury,Norman Mailer, Arthur Miller,Toni Morrison, Philip Roth,John Updike, Gore Vidal and Tom Wolfe. These names,these are all finished writers,Leonard s aid. They know what there doing. And so does Leonard,says A mis,who remembers first reading him and being i mpressed by his faultless ear.He loves Get Shorty and Be Coolamong others and says Leonards books have incredible dialogue and incredible structure. You read page after page and theres no sense of false q uantities,in the sense of repetition,Amis said,noting that Leonard transcendsb eing labeled a crime writer, citing an old axiom:Literary w riters covet sales and successful writers covet respect. This award,Amis says, will help ensure Leonard has both. Or as Leonard puts it,in h is succinct style:I think Im a good writer. I dont see a ny objection to my being on this list. The National Book F oundation isnt the only organization honoring L eonard. The Library of America,which releases hardcover volumes of the countrys greatest authors, from Herman Melville to Saul Bellow,has added Leonard to the pantheon.F our of his novels will be published in a bound edition in 2014,and additional volumes are planned. Leonard,one of the few w riters the library has honored while still living,has been recognized many times over by the general public. Nearly half of Leonards 4 5 novels have appeared on The New York Timesbestseller list,and hes hoping to add to that total with his 46th effort working title:Blue Dreams a tale thati nvolves both a rogue Immigration and Customs E nforcement agent and bull riding. Hes written several dozen pages so far. D espite his advancing age and some recent personal u pheaval hs divorcing his wife of nearly 20 years Leonard is pressing ahead and expects to have Blue Dreamsfinished certainly by the end of the year. Sitting in his home office a t a desk covered with papers,photographs and research materials,Leonard thumbed through the neatly stacked pages of BlueD reams,yanked one out of the pile and began reading. What came out of his mouth was unmistakable, vintage Leonard a crisplyw ritten narrative with lines of deadpan dialogue uttered by morally ambiguous characters. That verbal back-and-forth spoken by fictional peoplew ho sound real is what has made Leonards writing so d istinctive. People always say, Where do you get (yourc haracters) words?,and I say,t you remember p eople talking or think up people talking in your head? Thats all it is. I dont know why that seems such a wonder to people,he said. BOOKS Author Elmore Leonard wins prestigious book award MCT Elmore Leonard will be honored by the National Book Foundation in November.

Night will fall earlier,the weather will turn a bit coolera nd the leaves will begin to change and fall from the trees. In many areas,cropsa re ripe for the picking and pumpkins and apples will b egin to appear in the grocery stores. Florida experiences the fall season in manyw ays,although perhaps not as grand as the cooler clim ates,autumn brings its own gentle beauty. During the summer months the lush green trees were working very hard toc onvert water and carbon dioxide into sugar. Even t rees need a rest and when fall arrives,they begin to take a break from the photo-s ynthesis process. When this happens,leaves change from g reen to yellow,orange and red. Leaf color comes from p igments,which are natural substances produced within the leafs cells. There are three different types of these pigments in leaves:chloro-p hyll,carotenoid and anthocyanin. The chlorophyll is the most important of these pigments. Without it,the trees wouldnt be able to uset he sun to produce food. Chlorophyll is the green pigment. Carotenoids create the v ibrant oranges and yellows, which not only color leaves, but many fruits and vegetables. Anthocyanins produce the red color seen in leavesa nd many fruits such as apples,cherries and strawb erries. Not all trees produce leaves that have all threep igments. Chlorophyll and carotenoid remain in the leaf c ells all the time during the growing season. Chlorophyll covers up the c arotenoid,which is why they dont turn yellow or orange in the summer. Anthocyanin is not contained in all trees and it is only pro-d uced in the fall season. As the earth rotates around the sun,the days begin to shorten and there is less sunlight to warm theg round. Trees respond to receiving less sunlight by producing less chlorophyll. S ince the green colored pigment is no longer being made in full force,the carotenoid gets a chance to show off its yellow,orangea nd brown colors. The red pigment or anthoc yanins are actually produced as a form of protection for the leaf. This pig-m ent is produced when lots of warm,sunny autumn days a re followed by cool nights. The warmer weather allows the leaves to make sugar,but t he coolness of the evenings keeps the sugar sap from flowing through the leaf veins. Anthocyanins allow the plant to recover nutrientsi n the leaves and give them their radiant,vibrant reds and purples. Rainfall during the year has much to do with leafc olor.Warm,wet weather in the fall may lower the brightness of the leaf color. F rost will kill leaves,ensuring that they drop early. The brightest fall colors result from a warm,wet spring,a not too hot or dry summera nd fall weather with lots of sunny days and cooler n ights. Falling leaves are simply a form of survival for the t ree. Roots and branches can usually handle the freezing t emperatures,but leaves cannot. If the plant tissue,in this case the leaves,cannot l ive through the cold temperatures it must be shed in order for the tree to survive. With less sunlight,the veins in the leaves that carryt he life blood or sap in and out of the leaf begin to close up. When this happens,a layer of cells called the sep-a ration layer,forms on the stem. Once the process is complete,the leaf will separate from the branch and fall. Evergreen trees have need les that are coated with a waxy substance that protects them from cold weather. They dont lose their leaves since they never go throught he separation layer process. Fall is an important season not only for its beauty; fallen leaves are decomposed by bacteria,fungi,m icro-organisms and worms. Organic waste enriches the soil allowing plants to growi n the future spring season. Fall fun factsTemperature,light and water supply have an influ-e nce on the degree and the duration of fall color. Since 1997,Autumn has been one of the top 100 names for girls in the United States. Eastern Canada and New E ngland are famous for their autumnal foliage bringing b illions of U.S. dollars to those regions each year.

(AParm Aid is synonymous with star-studdedr ock concerts,like the one expected to draw 30,000 people to southeastern Pennsylvania on Saturday. But the real work of theo rganization happens mostly behind the scenes across rural America. Singer-songwriter Willie Nelson,president and co-f ounder of Farm Aid, believes the groups commitment to protectingf armland puts it on the right side of history. Everything helps or h urts,and I think Farm Aid has helped,Nelson said in a telephone interview Wednesday from Minnesota,where he wass cheduled to perform in Mankato. W ith more than $40 million raised through the musical performances and private contributions since the first Farm Aid concerti n 1985,the organization works to keep family farme rs on their land by awarding modest cash grants to groups that help smallandm edium-size farms across the country. Willie is the o ne who makes all the decisions on where the grants go,said Carolyn M ugar,the organizations executive director. The Farm Aid website also is a resource for farmers,providing information on ar ange of topics:how to get into farming,sources of credit for farmers,farmfresh food as an alternative to food produced by large-s cale,mechanized agrioperations.

C M Y K Dear Abby:My husband and I have been married 10 years. At every company heh as worked at,there was always a female he got close to sometimes a little too close.We have had counseling. Our counselor has told him his behavior is destructive in a marriage and he should be an open book for as long as it takes to rebuild the trust in our relationship. I recently found that he has changed all the passwords on his email and computer accounts. Needless to say,I am seriously disturbed by his behavior. He hasnt said anything about it,and I think hes waiting for me to ask him why. I think he wants to make the point that his privacis being compromised,but I also suspect there is another new woman hes interested in recruiting. I m tired of these games. I dont know whether its worth the energy to once again pursue the reasons for his behavior,or to finally walk away because I dont think hell ever change. I really need advice. Please help. Running Out of Energy Dear Running: Because you are tired of the games, stop participating in them. Obviously,what your husband has done is a red flag. Tell him you know he has changed his passwords,and it appears to be an attempt on his part to close a chapter of whats supposed to be an open book.If he attacks you for looking,remind him that with his history of serial infidelity you would have to be out of your mind not to. Forgive me for appearing negative,but if after 10 years the two of you haven't been able to fix whats missing in your marriage even with the help of a counselor there is nothing more I can suggest. Dear Abby: A longtime friend of mine,Blanche, was diagnosed with Alzheimers several years ago. She let me know thato nce she reached a certain point in the disease she did not want to be paraded around for others to gawk at. That time came about a year ago,but I still pick her up every Sunday and take her to church. Its the only time she gets to leave the nursing home,and she loves it. The people at church give her hugs and go out of their way to treat her well and she feels it. My question is,am I wrong in going against her earlier wishes? Friend in Arizona Dear Friend: I think you are. Your friend clearly stated when she was in her right mind that she did not want to be an object of pity. By going against her wishes, you have taken away herr ight to be remembered with dignity. And while it was done in a well-meaning way,I dont agree with it. Dear Abby: Im a woman in my 30s and Im facing the serious decision of whether to have children or not. What d like to know is,do people who choose not to have children regret it later in life? I appreciate your response. Curious in Texas Dear Curious: Some probably do,but according to the mail I have received, most of the women I hear from have no regrets. In fact, last year I heard from a number of parents who said they regretted having taken o n the challenge of parenthood. So,while having children can be rewarding,it isc learly not for everyone.

As we approached,he was on the groundd efending himself as others confirmed what had happened. Attempting to break up the fight,I was taken byt he grit and determination on our sons face to keep t his kid from pounding him. Every muscle bulged with impressive stamina. W hen the teacher broke them apart,she took them b oth to task and had them apologize to each other. Later when we spoke with our son,we reminded him that when he is beingb othered by another kid, dont let it get out of hand. F ind an adult. Then I followed my heart and told him howi mpressed I was by how well he had done in holdi ng off the other boy. He looked at me with amazement on his face. H e was prepared to be lectured. Instead,he heard words that reaffirmed r espect for adult authority, along with bolstering his p ersonal confidence and courage. The Bible says in Proverbs 25:11,NKJV,A word fitly spoken is likea pples of gold in settings of silver. We all have opportunities to use our words and tone of voice in a fitor proper way releasing positive energy. G ods words release positive action. How about when God received the fivel oaves and two fish from a little boy present in the crowd of 5,000 as seen in John 6. I magine with me how timid this child must have felt as the disciples brought him to Jesus with his meager lunch.He prob-a bly already sensed their disbelief that five barley l oaves and two small fish would matter.Maybe he expected Jesus to discounth is tiny offering saying in effect,thanks; but,no t hanks.But Scripture tells us otherwise. Put on your sanctified imagination and see Jesus putting his strong arma round the boy and looking him in the eye tenderly. C ant you hear him saying thank you to this little child for being willing tos hare his lunch?Then maybe with his arm still s ecurely around him he prayed to his Father in heaven to multiply theb os gift and bless the giver. Im sure that little boy w as never the same. He personally experienced the e nergy of Jesuswords speaking blessing and thanksgiving,after which Jesus gave and everyone ate. I pray that our words will flow with life-giving energy that blesses, encourages and nourishes the hearer. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a N ews-Sun correspodent.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Sunday, September 23, 2012 HIGH STAKESSchwartzs favorite ad is President Lyndon Johnsons 1964 Daisyad,one that featured a little girl counting flower petals before a frighteningly similar countdown for a nuclear blast. The message was that the bomb was safe in the hands of Johnson,but not in those of Republican Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, his opponent. These are the stakes:to make a world in which all of Gods children can live, or to go into the darkness. We must either love each other,or we must die,Johnson coldly stated. Thats a one-minute commercial that tells you a lot about what people were afraid of in 1964,said Schwartz,who defines a classic political ad as one that is either artistically made or extremely memorable. The best ads are the ones that work on a gut level that really evoke an emotional response. The daisy girl,once you see that,it stays with you,he said. Ads that play on fear tend to be very effective. As with other media,there have been plenty of changes in political advertising in the past 50 years. Some of the earliest presidential ads are more than four minutes long,an eternity in todays advertising age. The visual esthetic has improved tremendously,said Nicholas Valentino,a research professor at the University of Michigans Center for Political Studies.WILLIE HORTONThe infamous Willie Horton adin 1988 has been credited with dooming the presidential aspirations of Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis. The ad,run by an independent group backing then-Vice President George H.W. Bush,blamed Dukakis for a prison furlough program that allowed Horton to flee,kidnap a couple and repeatedly rape a young woman. The first President Bush ran his own ad that touched on themes similar to the original Willie Horton ad,but without specifically mentioning the notorious case.WORSE THAN EVER?Is this political cycle the most negative yet? Most people think so. According to a Knights of Columbus-Marist survey,three-quarters of Americans believe this election year is more intense in its negative campaigning than previous years,with 74 percent saying the problem is getting worse. PHOTOS FROM WWW.MOVINGIMAGE.USThe message of Lyndon Johnsons 1964 Daisyad was that the bomb was safe in his hands,but not in the hands of his opponent Sen.Barry Goldwater. W HY BE NASTY?A negative campaign is used to point out a rivals warts,some real,some out of context,and some imaginary.The strategy,in a nutshell: Venerate your candidate,vilify your foe. Character assassination is the occasional byproduct of open,competitive politics,and is as American as apple pie.A SHORT HISTORYJ EFFERSON VS.SEVERAL:In the 1796 campaign,John Adamssupporters called Thomas Jefferson a wine-andcheese-loving Francophile. If elected, murder,robbery, rape,adultery and incest will be openly taught and pract iced,the opposition said of J efferson. A dams won in 1796. Jefferson won in 1800 and 1804, even though his opponents tried the same attack. In addition,in the 1804 campaign,Jeffersons foes said he fathered children with his slaves.WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON:Democrats derided the Whig party and its 1840 standard bearer,Harrison,as a country peasant who lived in a log cabin and drank hard cider. So what did the Whigs and Harrison do? They held rallies at log cabins,sold Harrison as a regular rustic American and,of course, drank lots of hard cider.A BRAHAM LINCOLN:Cartoons a nd jokes demeaned Lincoln as homely during the 1860 c ampaign. Rumors cast him as a deist and an ignoramus. Lincoln never returned his opponentsattacks.GRANT VS.SEYMOUR:The antiUnion attacks from Republicans against Democrats and their candidate,Horatio Seymour,continued into the 1868 campaign. Republicans also said Seymours family had a history of insanity. (Seymours father committed suicide.) Seymours running mate,Frank Blair, was accused of being a drunk and of seeking another civil war. Democrats retorted by calling Ulysses Grant uncouth,tyrannical and a promoter of black superiority. One campaign song included the lines:I am Captain Grant of the Black Marines/The stupidest man that ever was seen.GOLDWATER VS.JOHNSON:In 1964,Democrats questioned Republican candidate Barry Goldwaters judgment. The U.S. senator from Arizona had proposed allowing U.S. military commanders to use tactical nuclear weapons. Democrats ran a TV ad that showed a girl counting as she removed petals from a daisy. As she neared 10 petals,her voice was replaced with a man counting down to zero. Then,to a deafening roar, the TV screen was filled with a mushroom cloud. The ad concludes: ote for President Johnson on Nov. 3. The stakes are too high for you to stay home. Johnson won in a landslide. The ad ran only once,but was replayed on TV news broadcasts.A NEGATIVE CONCLUSIONDoes going negative work? Several studies say no. According to research from Rutgers and George Washington University:All told,the research literature does not bear out the idea that negative campaigning is an effective means of winning votes,even though it tends to be more memorable and stimulate knowledge about the campaign. Nor is there any reliable evidence that negative campaigning depresses voter turnout. J efferson Political advertising often gets ugly,and this years presidential race is no exception. B ut just as political ads play on our collective hopes and fears,they also offer something of a time capsule on American life. Picture the vacuum-toting housewife in a 1956 ad for President Dwight Eisenhower as she tells viewers that happiness depends on being liked by ones neighbors, an indirect pitch for Ikes respect around the globe. Or the 1972 George McGovern ad that flashes dozens of headlines about President Richard Nixons Watergate-riddled White House,as a voice says,This is about the government.This is about credibility.This is about electronics. This is about bugging.This is about spying.This is about thievery.... These ads and more than 250 others can be viewed at an online exhibit created by the New York-based American Museum of the Moving Image.The Living Room Candidate www. livingroomcandidate.org features TV ads from every presidential campaign since 1952,including some of the most talked about from this year. The great thing about these ads is that they can e voke a lot in 30 seconds about what was going on in the country that year,said David Schwartz,chief curator of the Museum of the Moving Image,www.movingimage.us. And increasingly,these ads arent just on the television. Political campaigns are turning to the internet for video advertising.Particularly in demand this cycle:the 15and 30-second spots before videos on YouTube,Yahoo and others,according to Politico.com. Demand is so high that space is limited.But that problem may be solved by the next presidential election. By the 2016 cycle,YouTube and others expect to have far more impressions to offer.But the cost of impressions also will rise because online video enables advertisers to speak directly to the targeted audience whereas television ads cost dramatically more but end up viewed by a far broader and less demographically efficient audience,write Steve Friess and Emily Schultheis for Politico.Lincoln By John McCormick,Chicago Tribune;Azlan Ibrahim, Detroit Free Press;MCT
