C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEYc hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRING Saundra Bass,a dedicated advocate for children w ith disabilities,received the 13th Judge Clifton M. Kelly Championship for Children Award Thursday night. Bass was one of four individuals a nd one couple who were finalists for the honor. Twenty-four child advocates had been nominated. Im overwhelmed,Bass said,in an interview Friday. Im overwhelmed by all the congratulations. I didnt think Id done any-t hing to make a difference. When Basss son Danny was b orn with cerebral palsy,she learned the hard way how to seek out information,medical care and support. She learned how to gain strength from Danny and his posi-t ive spirit,learned how to be persistent,learned she could count on her faith,family and friends. For decades she has shared what she learned ,partly as a parenta dvocate for the school district, partly on her own time. She is active with the Miracle League and Special Stars program where she mentors parents of disabled children. Her hope,she said,is that people with disabilities will come to be seen in a positive light. That they become understood as individuals with strengths and abilities beyond their handicaps. That there is no need to be afraid them. Bass has faith in her hope. Highlands County is a county with a lot of passionate people, she said. They care about children. When they know the need, they give it. This is not just one agency,she added,ut the community as a whole. I wouldnt have had my kids grow up anywhere else.

J ennifer Carnahan is the owner/operator of the facility that has long been known for taking in neglected and abused horses. Carnahan has long used the facilities to rehabilitate and re-homethe animals but has recently taken a different direction with the horses. Promise Acres was recently named a new member of Horses4Heroes, Inc. The nationwide organization works to empower families of military and first responders with kidand family-friendly facilities and programs. ve been granted permission to do this ... it is exciting,but also overwhelming,Carnahan stated. The program was implemented last month and will give ample opportunity for horses to be put to use. The rescue has been searching for something to do with the horses that come into our care. The goal has always been to bring them in here, rehabilitate them and find them new homes. Now,with this program,we can not only help the horses but people as well,Carnahan said. The Horses4Heroes project allows horses to be used for emergency responders,military and their families and,of course,wounded warriors. Whether the purpose of the use is for recreational or medical,the horses would be the centerpiece for the idea.

The Silver Sands Apartments,3012 State Road1 7 N,has been getting a facelift over the past two months and is shaping up to be a brand new place. New property manager, D ianne Brewington,assumed that role in late June and has been busy ever since signingo n to the huge project. The new owner lives down in Miami and heb ought the place in early June. I got here on June 27, B rewington said. Since her arrival, Brewington has left her four-b edroom home and moved onto the property to give the p osition her full attention. Brewington and her family reside just steps away from the Silver Sands office,giving residents 24-hour accesst o management. There arent many places w here the manager lives on the property. Thats something that a lot of apartmentr esidents cant say,so I think it is a special part of living h ere,Brewington said. The property has been cleaned and renovated over t he past three months by Brewingtons husband,Don, who works as the facility and maintenance manager. The couple has done a m ajor overhaul at the former resort that has created a relaxed,quaint atmosphere at the apartment complex. e have upgraded apartm ents cleaned,painted,and got rid of old carpets. We h ave cleaned up around the property and cleared the lake for swimming. We are going to be adding umbrella tables, more palm trees. Wrea dding new fence around the property and planting hedges i n the front along the road, Brewington said. The property sits on D inner Lake,which is another unique addition to resid ents looking to have a nice scenery to look at every day. The Brewingtons feel that all t he new renovations to the property make it a perfect spot for tenants,no matter their age. s a safe,quiet place w ith a vacation-like atmosphere,and where else can you see a great sunset and sunrise overlooking the lake every night and morning,D ianne said. The Silver Sands Apartments currently have 15 t enants but the property has nearly 45 units. The property has five units currently ready to move into and continually work to re-vamp other unitsf or potential residents. Brewingtons goal for the up and coming property is a simple one; to be successful. I want to rent all 43 apartm ents and I want to keep the northerners coming back year after year. I enjoy working w ith people and living here is great,my kids love the beach. I am here for my family and for a career that I enjoy, Brewington said. S ilver Sands Apartments is now leasing and available to residents of all ages. For applications or appointments Brewington can be reached at9 91-4347.

C M Y K Lets face it,this election season has gone on way too long and been all kinds of ugly.And we haveo ver a month left to endure.It doesnt promise t o get any better; in fact,I fully expect that some people will overload so badlyo n election coverage that we will find them curled u p in dim corners,hands over their ears,moaning softly. N ot wanting any of my readers to share that fate ve decided to come up w ith a few ideas of how to survive the next few weeks w ith sanity intact.Or at least as much of your sanity as you want to keep.Me,I dont use much of mine. Do your homework. Y es,you will have to pay some attention to whats going on around you.Take some time to examine the candidates.Dont forget about amendments or ballot initiatives that yours tate may be deciding on.ll tell my fellow F loridians that if you Google Florida amendments 2012you will finda list of them online.I wont promise that therew ritten in an understandable fashion,but hey,its a start. Get your news from more than one source.Yes,I know.Your news service is way better than that lying,cheating,evil network.Still,it pays to get more than one side of an issue. And while I dont trust the mainstream media any further than I can throw it I realize that Fox News is not the inspired word of God.Even good networks get it wrong once in a while.Use your resources and get as much information as you can. Snopes is your friend.Realize that just because someone says something,it doesnt make it true.There are a number of websites on the Internet that debunk urban myths and rumors. Use them if you have a question. www.snopes.com is one such resource (and contrary to the urban legends, Snopes is not owned by George Soros or a shill for the left).There are others out there as well. Once in a while walk a way from it all.Even political junkies need b reaks from this stuff.There is life beyond the political. Play a videog ame. Watch a sports event. Read a book.Take a walk o utside if you can ignore the campaign signs out there. Learn to laugh at it.Sometimes,when it comes to politics,its either l augh about it or cry.Try to see the humor in it.I have r un into a number of clean jokes about politics and they serve to take an edge off it all.Figure out the funny side if you can. Chocolate.Anyone who knows me isnt surprised at this one.Chocolate is a proven mood elevator and after listening to some of these political ads you might need one.Some mayb e bad enough that you have to resort to eating d ark chocolate frosting from the can.(That tastes pretty good,by the way.Dont ask me how I know that.) Remember that elections come and go,but family and friends will still be there.I know a number of people who do not sharem y political views.We are good friends.We do not discuss politics in general because weve all decided we want to still be good friends after Nov. 6.You may have to cut a similar deal with loved ones. This may include blocking some of their posts on Facebook, unless you are like me and can ignore the ones that make you crazy. So there are a few tips to help you survive the next few weeks.Hang in there, because this too,shall pass.May we all get through it with a minimum of scars. Or at least without whimpering in a corner. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by email at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com.

L ake Jackson is a classic example. While we wish along with everyone else there was a switch we could flipa utomatically raising lake levels and freeing the connecting channel under U .S. 27,we know there is not. We have to deal with the power of nature on natures own terms. We can guide,usea nd sometimes improve it,but nature is not something we can ever truly control. T here are certain facts we are going to have to accept. There isnt,for example, a hole in the bottom of the lake through which water is escaping. Does water seep out of the JacksonJ osephine Canal? Yes,perhaps more than we currently suspect. It is not e nough of a drain,however,to explain the recent record low water level. Like it or not,the main reason for L ake Jacksons troubles is climate c hange. Less rainfall over all,and longer and deeper droughts are taking their toll. T his is not a wail of gloom or doom. Lake Jackson will continue to rise and fall already with the rain its notice-a bly higher than a month ago. And the good news is that now people a re paying attention. At the risk of being cynical,elected officials tend to take notice when prop-e rty owners unite,especially when, according to the tax appraisers office, t he ownerscombined Lake Jackson and Little Lake Jackson shore front property values total more than $130 million. Put another way,when the people on the angry side of the table pay a com-b ined county tax of almost $1 million, city tax of more than $500,000 and $ 60,000 to the Southwest Florida Water Management District every year,the people on the other side of the table tendt o pay attention. The News-Sun appreciates the effort local elected officials and members of several government agencies are makingo n residents behalf. We thank them for taking the time to meet with us concerned citizens and sharing information. We believe they are capable,dedicated people who are looking for answers. T here are no easy answers,however. Seemingly simple natural phenomena usually turn out to be complex andd ependent on a wide range of factors think of the atom. Certainly the hydrology of Central F lorida is complicated and finely balanced. Fill in a stream there,cut a chann el here and water,even miles away,is effected. The best news is that every generation l earns from the one before. We know the effort to drain the Everglades,for examp le,was a well intentioned disaster,as was building the Kissimmee Canal. Those are the kinds of mistakes we wont make again. Can scientists stabilize Lake Jackson a nd Little Lake Jackson water levels? We will have to wait and see; on the w hole we think not. Only the right amount of rain can do that. Thats the drawback to nature; it is w hat it is.

Promise Acres becomes host for Horses4HeroesEditor: Promise Acres Equine Rescue in Avon Park has accepted the opportunity to be a host facility for Horses4Heroes. What better way can our rescued horses heal then by the hands of men and women who know what it is like to suffer and overcome? Working together our horses will heal and those who come to know them will also be healed through the interaction and unconditional love that only an animal can provide. Horses4Heroes,Inc. is a national non-profit that is making the dream of affordable horseback riding a reality for our troops,veterans, Wounded Warriors and their families. The mission is to make horseback riding affordable for,and accessible to,the heroes and their families in our communities from coast to coast. Through our national network of kidfriendly,family friendly facilities,we offer able-bodied,affordable horseback riding programs that emphasize fun and safe activities with horses,mounted and un-mounted for all ages. Participants learn valuable leadership and teamwork skills,make new friends,and develop a passion for our western heritage and a lifelong love of horses. Jennifer L. Carnahan Avon ParkCoxs leadership and management style observedEditor: This letter is a bit different than usual in endorsing a candidate. Usually the letters consist of a statement of the candidates qualifications and success. However,this letter supporting Wally Cox for reelection of School Superintendent,addresses my observation of the demeanor and leadership style of his opponent during the political forum at Sun N Lake on Sept. 24. I believe we are all tired of the negative and attack advertisements we see and hear on TV and radio. While this seems to be normal for national election candidates, its usually a style unexpected in a local election. Mrs. (Rebecca to attack Mr. Coxs leadership from the opening statement and continued this throughout her presentation. One area discussed was the criticism of funding for the new school buildings to replace most portables. While Mr. Cox recommended this,the School Board had final approval. Other criticisms were very pointed and the demeanor seemed to me,very harsh and negative. While Mr. Cox spoke,she did not have the courtesy to look at him or the audience, but held her head down and shook it in disagreement. This negative and seeming harsh demeanor,I believe, will follow to the treatment of classroom teachers,staff and principals and is not,in my opinion,the style of leadership we need in a school superintendent. While disagreeing with the issues is certainly OK, doing so in the manner I observed,points to a leadership style I would not expect in a good leader. How easy it would have been for her to address what she planned to do as a superintendent,if elected. She chose not to do that,showing,in my opinion,her true leadership style. Mr. Cox remained calm and did not return the attacks,thus proving the gentleman he is. He took the high road during the presentations,displaying his outstanding character and quiet leadership style that gets support and positive response from his staff,principals and teachers. The State Superintendents Association has recognized Wallys leadership qualities by naming him Superintendent of the Year in 2012. I recommend reelecting Wally Cox for superintendent.

G RACE SAGONA Grace Gioe Sagona, Sebring,Florida N ov. 12,1920 Sept. 3, 2012 B orn Grace Catharine Gioe to parents Joseph Gioe and Veronica Malone Gioe inB rooklyn,N.Y. From the very start of her life,it was obvious to everyone who c ame in contact with Grace that she possessed a outgoing p ersonality and extraordinary enthusiasm for life. Grace brought humor,love of laughter and a giving heart to everythings he did,especially to her extensive volunteer work in the Sebring community. She attende d Brooklyn public schools and M arymount College in Tarrytown,N.Y. She spent every summer at Our Lady of Lourdes Camp for girls in Livingston,N.Y. The child-h ood friendships that she made at camp and later in college were deep and meaningful for her entire life. She began her career as a g uide for the Dumont Radio Studios,NYC,and was selected to be the host of the first childrens show ever broadcast on the Dumont Network in 1946. Her show, Aunt Gracies Birthday Party, made her the pioneer woman in television broadcasting. She left her career in early television for marriage and to raise a family in 1949 and then moved to North Miami, Fla. in 1953. She raised six children,three from her first marriage and three from her second marriage to Stuart Hadley Sagona in 1961. Grace and Stuart moved from North Miami to Sebring in 1980. Graces enthusiasm and her deep compassion led her to teach Special Education in Dade County and Highlands County,Fla. Once she retired,she was able to pursue her love of acting at The Highlands Little Theatre in Sebring. She was associated with more than 48 plays and featured as the lead or supporting actress in many. Not only did Highlands Little Theatre benefit from her acting talent,but she was a tireless volunteer in many capacities. In 1997 the board members of the theatre created an annual award called The Gracie Award,which was first given to her and then other volunteers who also exhibited Grace Sagonas e xtraordinary level of contribution to the Highlands Little Theatre in Sebring,Fla. N ever tiring of challenges and opportunities to give b ack to her community and the opportunity to have fun, Grace trained as a clown in1 992 at the Ringling Brothers School for Clowns. She became GiGi the Clown a nd used her new character to entertain at local nursing h omes,childrens hospitals and libraries across Highlands and Polk counties. In 2000,Grace and Stuart moved into Fairway PinesS enior Living Community. She expressed her constant desire to make everyones day happier by making sure she had a daily joke for everyone she saw and volunteering tirelessly at the facil-i ty. In addition,she was a d evoted volunteer at Florida Hospital with more than 10,000 hours of volunteer work to her credit. She also volunteered as a docent at theS outh Florida Community College art gallery and as a docent at the Highlands Hammock Park. Preceeding her in death w as her husband,Stuart H. Sagona in 2005.

She is survived by eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Donations in memoriam to Disabled American Veterans, www.dav.org. Carnahan has been getting a h uge positive response, according to Carnahan, f rom volunteers as well as interested participants. Im getting a really good r esponse. Its a lot more than I expected. It is a good p rogram to offer for this community,I think. Currently the rescue is h ousing 17 horses each of which have come to the facility under neglect or abandonment issues. Carnahan stated that theyr arely get a horse due to abuse issues. Though the goal is always to re-home the animals,that has not been an easy task the pastf ew years due to a struggling economy; many of the h orses have remained in the care of Promise Acres. T he Horses4Heroes program will allow the animals to be put to use while they remain in the care of the facility. It gives them a purpose while they are here. A lot of times we get these animals in here and their spirit is broken. You give an animala purpose and they rehabilitate quicker.You get them working with people and they focus harder on what they are trying to accomplish,Carnahan said. T he biggest aspect Promise Acres hopes to f ocus on through the project is the military families and children. Carnahan plans too ffer programs for young children who face stress and l oneliness due to their parents military deployments. s hard on the kids w hen the parents are overseas. If we can give them something positive to focus on,it helps. Its something that will keep their mind offo f their parents so much and something they can share with their parents when they return,Carnahan said. Carnahan has planned the Operation Free Ride Open House as part of the newp rogram kick-off. In November,Promise Acres w ill hold an event-filled day with loads of fun,family activities for the public toe njoy. Donations will be accepted throughout the e vent and will benefit the Horses4Heroes program as well as the facility itself. T he Nov. 11 open house will serve as a launching pad to give Carnahan an idea of what services will be offered through the newly-f ormed program at the facility.

The town of LakeP lacid is 85 years old,and the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative,the Lake Placid Mural Society and the Clown Foundation are all 20 yearso ld. The Lake Placid Historical Society is celebrating 30 years. And 20 years ago,the islands and the plantings along InterlakeB oulevard were started.

In 1992,a stroll down I nterlake Boulevard and Main Street would find 15 e mpty stores. A glance into these stores would show debris and dirt from manyy ears past. Most of the outside walls of the buildings w ere filled with black mold. There were no islands along the street with beautiful shrubs,flowers,and well kept trees. Suddenly littlem iracles started to happen. Three women Harriet Porter,Sullen Robinson and Carol Mills had a dream. Sometimes dreams do comet rue. They started the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative in a 10,000square-foot building that had been vacant for five and ah alf years. This cooperative is run by its members and designed to give artists and crafters a place to sell their creations. It was a huge success. A t the gala event in 1992 to introduce the cooperative t o the town,the newly formed Lake Placid Mural Society unveiled the first his-t oric rendering,Southwinds, to be painted on the side of t he Caladium Co-op. In 20 years the mural society has introduced 140 pieces of artwork into the town,which includes 44 historic muralsa nd 17 one-of-a-kind trash containers. These murals b ring thousands of people to Lake Placid each year. Lake Placid is now known a s the town of murals. Keith Stokes,known as T oby the Clown,started his clown classes the same year, 1992,at the Florida Hospital Lake Placid. Lake Placid now boasts an American ClownM useum and School with more than 2,000 graduated clowns to its credit. Lake Placid has more clowns per capita than anywhere in thec ountry. The Lake Placid Historical Society is keeping the history and the memories of the past alive in the historic traind epot museum. The depot is on the National Registry.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comS EBRING Head coach LaVaar Scott knew what his t eam faced Friday night a top-notch American Heritage s quad with a roster strewn with Division I prospects. His own team, young from the start of the season has been decimated by injuries to the few, experienced upper classmen. Added all together, that will account for the 55-7 Patriot win at Firemens Field, but doesnt tell the whole story. Perhaps as an analogy for his team needing time to improve to a point of competing on the level of an American Heritage, the night itself very well took its time. Between weather, injuries and enough yellow flags and extended conferences that made it seem like the officiating crew were auditioning for Replacement Refs the movie, the contest dragged on for 3 1/2 hours. And that was with a running clock from the eightminute mark of the third quarter. The Patriots struck quickly when, after holding Sebring on itsfirst possession, took just one play as Tyler Cogswell found Tyler Carmona for a 38-yard score and 7-0 lead just 1:11 into the game. The Streaks were in the midst of their second possession when a lightning delay was called as foreboding clouds rolled overhead from the east. Play resumed after a 30minute delay, but the dark skies both lingered and told the story. After a back and forth of shortened drives and punts, American Heritage shot itself in the foot as two scoring plays were called back due to penalty within three plays of each other. Sebring did receive a jolt when QB Jair Watson connected with Jarvis Bridges ona 37-yard strike on the opening play of itsnext drive, but SPORTS B SE CTION I nside This Section JV Streaks win again . . .3B Hog Hunts . . .4B News-Sun Sunday, September 30, 2012 Special to the News-SunSEBRING Two athletes walked away with top honors at the Special STARS Basketball competition on Saturday, Sept. 22, at the First Baptist Church of Sebrings Recreation Outreach Center. Shawn Squires won a trophy for shooting the most free throws in the advanced level while Katie Gibson won the trophy for the best free throw shooter in the beginners level. This was a new contest offered this year. They each got a chance to shoot 10 free throws and both sunk seven out of 10 baskets. Squires and Gibson were also first-place winners in their divisions. Approximately 35 athletes competed in skill drills in two levels beginners and advanced players. Each level had different divisions according to the athletes abilities. They all competed in skills such as passing the ball at a target, shooting free throws, target shooting, and dribbling through a course. They scored points for each skill to receive awards. Squires played in the advanced high division. Other winners in the bracket were Bill Sobczak, second; Eddie Thomas, third; Greg Robinson, fourth; Gerald Bass, fifth; John Davis, sixth; Larry Rivers, seventh; and Bill Wheeler, eighth. In the advanced middle division the winners were Emily Lavely, first; John Smith, second, Annie Horn, third; Ilana Levy, fourth; Joe Singha, fifth; Lewis Simpson, sixth; and Ronnie Gladson, seventh. Gibson played in the beginners high division. Other winners in this group were Jacqueline Furry, second; Penny Holder, third; Ricky Marino, fourth; Dustin Akey, fifth; Mac Smith, sixth; and Bruce Brummett, seventh. In the beginners middle division the winners were Edrei Lopez, first; Amy Matthews, second; Maria Rivera, third; Fred Moore, fourth; Alan Kufnowski, fifth; Sarah Moore, sixth; Sue Talios, seventh; Minnie Sue Reid, eighth; and Maricel Moreno, ninth.

By MIKE CALLAWAY Ledger correspondentLAKELAND Lakeland Christian was without top running back Rafeal Pressley Friday night, but as long as t he Vikings had Christian Alexander, it didnt matter.. The Lakeland Christian sophomore quarterback had another exceptional performance with three passing touchdowns and added another on the ground in the Vikings48-26 homecoming victory over Lake Placid Friday night at Viking Stadium before 1,537 fans. Turnovers haunted Lake Placid in the first half. Four fumbles and a blocked punt all resulted in points for Lakeland Christian, which jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter. Alexander threw a 4-yard t ouchdown pass to Patrick Behrens then ran for a score. Caleb Thomas took the bulk of the carries in Pressleys place, and his 3-yard run made it 21-0 with 1:10 to play in the quarter. He finished with 62 yards rushing. I always prepare for a four-quarter fight he said. The Vikings added 27 points in the second quarter to offset a Marquavein Dragon comeback too little, too late Lakeland Christian48L ake Placid26 American Heritage55Sebring7 See LP, Page 4B By BRITTANY W HITTINGTON N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Visiting Winter Haven was the presumptive district favorite when the season began and put another notch in its belt toward that in Thursdays four-set win over the Lady Blue Streaks. But though the Streaks did not come out with a victory, they still gained many positive things. Sebring was out to prove that they were not going to just give up and gave the Blue Devils as much as they could handle. When you have two good teams, said Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness. Its the team that doesnt have mental brain farts, and of course we did. Unfortunately, the young Blue Streak squad did have a few brain farts on the night. Sebring started off with the lead in the first set, setting the tone for the rest of the night. It appeared that things w ould turn out differently t han what was predicted. Senior middle Meghan Lollis started off the first set with a pair of points, getting a kill and an ace. Akill from junior setter Lindsey Whittington brought the score 3-1. The lead was slowed down when Winter Haven started to pick up the momentum. The Blue Devils brought the score closer, but Jordan Hinkle had a kill keeping Sebring ahead 9-7. Lollis and Whittington were a wall at the net with a block, bringing the score 10-7. After Winter Haven went on a surge to take control, a last-gasp solo block by Lollis held off game point for a moment longer. But the visiting Devils soon finished the set 2519. The second set would end much differently than the first. An ace by Lollis tied the score 2-2.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe contest would be hard fought, the outcome delayed, but when all was said and done, the Sebring Junior Varsity football squad made it four in a row with Thursdays 14-6 win over visiting Frostproof. The Bulldogs themselves came to town sporting a matching 3-0 record to provide f urther impetus for the highly anticipated match-up. Apredominant defensive battle throughout most of the first half, the JVStreaks missed a chance for an early lead as Connor Cook had an apparent rushing score that w as called back due to penalty. Then the weather stepped in, causing a 45-minute lightning delay just before halftime. When play resumed, Sebring went on the march again and looked to get on the board before the break. But a stalwart Frostproof defense stood strong and stifled them to keep it scoreless at the half. The stalemate was finally broken in the third when Cook again charged through the line for a score, with no penalties thist ime around, for a 6-0 S ebring lead. The Streak defense proved nearly impenetrable and quite opportunistic. Todd Markham, Kolten Hinkle, Shawn Success and Patric Anderson each were credited with sacks and Lane H ammonds acrobatic interception highlighted five takeaways for the Blue Streak defenders. In the fourth, Tony Jenkins added an insurance score, with the two-point conversion upping the ante to 14-0. Alate score for the Bulldogs was the one blem-i sh on the night, but merely p rovided for the final margin. It was a whole team effort, head coach Chris Cook said. Both our defensive and offensive lines stepped up to the plate in leading us to this victory. I couldnt have asked for a bett er win from this team. Now at 4-0 on the season, Sebring hits the road Thursday for a meeting with the Wildcats at Hardee. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 30, 2012Page 3B chamber page; 7.444"; 15"; Black; chamber page; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 3 3 7 7 1 1 1 1 News-Sun photo courtesy of JAMIE WILLIAMS Todd Markham tackles this Frostproof ballcarrier in the Junior Varsity Blue Streaks win Thursday night.

CHRISCOOK SebringJVhead coach After that it seemed that the Streaks would be in for another loss. Akill by Hinkle would bring the score closer and sophomore Hannah Tucker close the gap to one at 7-6. From there it stayed neck and neck all the way until the end. ABella Caraballo score brought Sebring back to life, tying the score at 24 and making the set go into the win by two rule. Winter Haven went up by one, but was tied again with another kill from Tucker. Akill by Lollis would put the Streaks up by one and finally finished off the set with a nail biting score of 2725. The third set would be the sort that Sinness alluded to, in that it was the stinker of the night. The Devils jumped out to a quick 11-3 lead and Sebring lagged behind most of the set with not much life in them. Winter Haven held their lead around 10 points throughout the whole set and finished at 25-14. It seemed to look like Sebring had lost the fire they had attained in the second set with the fourth and final set starting off similar to the third. The Blue Streaks were not able to grasp a lead at all in the fourth set and trailed behind for the rest of the night. Although they trailed, they were still able to make somewhat of a comeback and went out with a fight, finishing with a 25-21loss. Head coach Venessa Sinness was not disappointed with how her team played at all. She explained that now they know what to expect from Winter Haven, and know what to fix for next time. This district has gotten way more competitive since last year and the district tournament is expected to be very interesting. Sebring will keep things going as the district schedule continues with a visit from Kathleen on Tuesday, Oct. 2.

C M Y K 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. B eginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 8, prospective hunters can purchase permits for the hunts on the Districts website atH ogHunts.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 p ermit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format and 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 y ear for the hunts. Last years hunts removed 270 hogs from four different t racts of land throughout the District.

In addition to turnovers, the Dragons also had nine penalties for 59 yards in the first half, mostly false starts, that kept their offense from moving the ball down the field. When the second half started LCS coach Wayne Peace sent out freshmanq uarterback Michael Young a nd sophomore running back Dalton Joiner at to finish the game. After both defenses locked in to throw a third-quarter shutout, Lake Placid finally got it rolling in the fourth. Eldon McKenzie rumbled i n from six yards out to start the final quarter to make it 48-13 at the 11:05 mark. Later, the big-play connection of Robert Walton to Ricky Miller hooked up for a 68-yard score with 5:18 left. And with less than a minute to play, Walton found Foster Walker on a 14-yard touchdown. The two-point attempt fell short, as perhaps a personification of the night for the G reen Dragons. But after three weeks of the Lake Placid offense being held in dry dock, the fourth q uarter surge could be a sign that it is back on track. Which they will need as the Dragons return home after three straight weeks on the road to face Sarasota Booker on Friday. W alton ended up the night 6-of-14 passing for 101 y ards, 72 of those to Miller on two catches. Continued from 1B LP sees offense get on track the success was short-lived. Apunt soon gave it back to the Patriots and they wasted little time as Sony M ichel 67 yards on the second play for a 14-0 lead with 1:06 left in the first. The Streaks next drive sputtered and the punt to end the quarter was returned to the eight, with Walter Tucker taking it in for a 200 lead four seconds into the second. Brandon Ferretti came on at quarterback for the quarter, but had similar results as W atson. H e completed an eightyarder to Arthur Williams, but was soon sacked for a 10-yard loss by 6-foot-5, 260-pound Darius Holiday. The Sebring defense stepped up and forced a Patriot punt and the offensem oved the ball a little, but a hold, a sack and a reverse that lost yardage halted it. Some new life seemed to b e gotten when Isaiah McKenzie tried to field the ensuing punt on the bounce and saw it jarred loose on an i mmediate hit to get the ball back in the Streaks possession. But a backward pass, from the 13, slipped through the running backs fingers and was now a loose ball. Tarvarus McFadden darted in, scooped it up at the two and took a quick stride into the end zone for a 27-0 lead with 6:19 in the half. Another, more nervewracking delay came on the Patriots next drive when, on a Cogswell completion to McKenzie saw the Jones brothers, Breon and Decaris, each fly in for the tackle. Unfortunately for Breon, the helmet to helmet contact left him down on the field. After being attended to, J ones was taken off by param edics with what was thought to be a possible concussion and collarbonei njury. When play resumed, it didnt take long for Heritage to add to itslead, with Michel charging in from s hort distance to make for the 34-0 lead at the half. It might have been more, but a Torrance Gibson interception of a halfback pass that was returned for an apparent touchdown in the waning seconds, was called back for an illegal on the return. Cogswell and Carmona combined again for a score, making it 41-0 with 8:01 left in the third and beginning the running-clock rule. Gibson would throw a scoring pass to Victor Ferrara, but Sebring woulds oon finally have an answer. Watson, back in, hit Duran Randolph for a 48yard gain, and the two connected again on the next play for 34 yards and a touchdown with 8:45 left in the fourth. The scoring would be completed with a Travis Jackson touchdown in the waning moments. Thats a very good football team, no doubt, coach Scott said afterward. We may have made them look a l ittle better, but they are very good. Scott also knows that this is an opportunity to give his young players valuable experience at a high level. It really does give them a l ook at how they have to improve, how they have to play at this level, he said. And thats what were going to do at quarterback. Were going to have Watson start one quarter and Ferretti the next, kind of a try-out for each. Whoever shows improvement and consistency, well go with. B ut what Scott is most keeping his eye on is the schedule. eve got our bye this week and it comes at a good time, he said. This will allow us to rest up and get a lot healthier. Well be able to get a lot of our guys back. That will be for the Friday, Oct. 12 home date with George Jenkins.

Heres moret han you ever wanted to know aboutj unk mail: Each year, direct mail cre-a tes 10 billion pounds of solid w aste in the United States and costs local communities more than $1 billion inc ollection and disposal expenses not to mention p utting you at greater risk for identity theft if you dont shred personalized mailings before tossing. So how can you stop the f lood of junk mail you receive? You could try movi ng or changing your name, but as you've probably noticed,a lot of whatsd elivered to your mailbox is addressed to Occupant. I n fact,the U.S. Postal Service relies heavily on such deliveries,which nowo utnumber first-class postage mailings. Here are a few more p ractical suggestions for stemming the tide: A good way to significantly reduce the number of offers you get for new credit accounts and insurance is to register withw ww.OptOutPrescreen.com ,a secure website created by the leading credit bureaus (Equifax,Experian, Innovis and TransUnion). By completing a simple online form,you canr equest to be removed from marketing lists the bureaus s upply to lenders and insurance companies for use in firm (preapproved) credit or insurance offers. The electronic opt-out is valid forf ive years. If you want to opt out permanently,you must mail the form to the address provided. You can also opt back into suchm ailings electronically through the website. And,if you prefer,you may opt in o r out by phone at 888-5678688. A nother good method to curb the amount of direct mail you receive is to regis-t er with www.DMAchoice.org,a p rogram run by the Direct Marketing Association,the leading trade organizationf or businesses and nonprofits that send direct mail. When you register, y our name is put in a deletefile that is sent to D MAs 3,600-plus members to check against their mailing lists. Its important to note that not all marketers belong toD MA,so registering wont stop all such mailings. Also,it wont stop mailings from companies you already do business with or to which youve made a donation in the past. To geto ff their lists youll have to contact them directly. Y ou can also register with DMAchoice.org to stop mail from being sent to a deceased individual or if you want to manage mailb eing sent to a dependent in your care. And,they have an email preference service where you can opt out of receiving unsolicited com-m ercial emails from DMA members for six years. A third opt-out option to e xplore is www.CatalogChoice.org,a f ree service that helps you submit opt-out requests for catalogs,coupons,creditc ard offers,phonebooks, circulars and more. Catalog C hoice also offers several paid where they do more of the legwork to get you offt hird-party mailing databases. One last suggestion:If y ouve got elderly parents, you might want to screen t heir mail for an overabundance of direct mail especially catalogs and solicitations for money. If there on a fixed income and sus-c eptible to strong sales pitches,the combination can be devastating to their bank account. You can help them register with the organizations mentioned above. N o matter how diligent your efforts to get yourself o ff unwanted mailing lists, youre probably still going to get some junk mail. But its good to know there are ways to significantly scaleb ack the amount. J ason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

How to stem the tide of junk mail Metro Direct mail creats 10 billion pounds of solid waste and $1 billion in collection and disposal expenses each year. Personal Finance Jason Alderman Learning business etiquette B y CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics WriterW ASHINGTON A spate of data Thursday painted a m ixed picture of the U.S. economy:Demand for longlasting manufactured goods fell and slightly fewer people signed contracts to buyh omes. At the same time,the job market looked a little better. Taken together,the reports suggest the economy is grow-i ng only modestly and not quickly enough to spur much hiring. The economy overall has only weak forward momentum,Nigel Gault,chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight,said in a note to clients. The news from housing may be improving,but manufacturing is struggling now. Most of the data seemed discouraging on the surface. But a closer inspection of the details offered some promise. Companies cut orders for long-lasting goods by 13.2 percent in August,the Commerce Department said. That was the biggest drop in more than three years but it was largely influenced by a 102 percent decline in volatile aircraft orders. Excluding transportation equipment, orders fell only 1.6 percent. And in a positive sign,orders in a category that reflect busi-n ess investment plans rose 1.1 percent,the first increase s ince May. The overall economy grew at a 1.3 percent annual rate in the April-June quarter,much lower than the 1.7 percent theg overnment previously estimated. About half of the downward revision stemmed from the severe drought in the Midwest,which cut overallf arm output. But growth also fell because exports and consumer spending expanded at a slower pace. The number of Americans who signed contracts to buy previously occupied homes fell in August from a two-year high in July. The National Association of Realtors said its index of sales agreements declined 2.6 percent to 99.2. Thats just below the reading of 100 that is considered healthy. Still,the index is 10.7 percent higher than a year ago. Economists expect growth to hover near or below 2 percent for the rest of the year. Thats typically too weak to create enough jobs to lower the unemployment rate. One report appeared to offer some hope that the job market will improve. Weekly applications for unemployment benefits plunged 26,000 to a seasonal-l y adjusted 359,000,the lowest level in two months,the L abor Department said. The four-week average,a less volatile measure,fell to 374,000. Applications are a measure o f the pace of layoffs. When they consistently fall below 375,000,it typically indicates that hiring is strong enough to lower the unemployment rate. T he weekly figures can be volatile,causing most economists to focus on the fourweek average. Economists were mildly encouraged by the unemployment applications. Still,many still expect the governments employment report for September to show only modest job gains,perhaps about 100,000. Thats about the same as in August. The September jobs report will be released next week. The September jobs report will be released next Friday. The past few reports on applications for unemployment benefits suggest no significant acceleration or deceleration in employment growth,said Jim OSullivan, an economist at High Frequency Economics.

There will be refreshments,a nd,of course,a birthday cake. The event will also see the premier of the Lake Placid Historical Societys video, Dr. Melvil Dewey In His Own Words,with its cast of local residents. Al Pelski,w ho portrays Dr. Dewey in the video,will be the host for the video premier,answeringq uestions and giving out popcorn. T he video was produced by Rick Schrrock,owner of Big Byte Video. Financingf or the video was made possible,in part,by a grant from t he Heartland Cultural Alliance. It was well over 20 years ago when Harriet Porter and Suellen Robinson met at theL ake Placid Art League show. Porter signed up for art classe s with Robinson,and they painted together for many years. It was on a motorcyclet rip that the Porters saw a cooperative in Steamboat S prings,Colo. Bob Porter was convinced that this was needed in Lake Placid. R obinson and Harriet Porter talked about the possibility of forming a cooperative similar to one in North Carolina, Dogwood Crafters. But,s omething was missing. The unexpected happened when Porter and Robinson took a painting class taught by artist Thomas Freemanf rom Lake Wales. During a break the girls met Carol M ills. They knew her by reputation as a very good artist. A fter telling Mills about their dream of having an art cooperative in Lake Placid,she stated,I have always wanteda shop where I could sell h and made items. It was at that moment in Freemans class that the co-o p was born. The enthusiasm was high, and meetings were arranged. It was not unusual for threeway telephone calls to begin i n the evening and last well after midnight,.Harriet Porter said. An old 10,000s quare foot building that had been vacant for over five y ears was the only building we would consider. It was perfect. The Wauchula State Bank owned the property and they gave permission for thef irst meeting to be held there. I t was decided that it would take 30 interested artists and craftsmen to startt he cooperative. A call for artists was sent out to the c ommunity and the meeting set for 7 p.m. That night the girls waited with great anticip ation. At the appointed time no one came,Porter said. Then just after 7 p.m. people started to arrive. That was a night to remember.E ighty people attended,and after hearing the plan the cheering and clapping began. At the end of the evening there were 44 paid membersa nd the promise of more. A call went out to the comm unity. The co-op was planning a huge garage sale and needed donated items. Its eemed half of the town brought items to sell,and the other half came to buy.There were so many wonderful items donated that the co-opf urnished the office with file cabinets,and waste baskets, and almost everything that was needed. Other businesses who had remodeled gaveo ffice furniture and steel file cabinets. The power and light company gave room dividerst o help make class rooms. Another business donated a refrigerator. It was a huge success and that along with generous d onations convinced everyone we were welcome in the community,Porter said. I t was at this time that the Porters were ready to take t heir next three-month trip heading for Alaska. It was on this trip they saw the murals in Chemainus,B.C. and were so excited about them thatt hey brought that idea back to the co-op. It was decided that t here should be two organizations. This is when the Porters took the mural socie-t y for their project. On Oct. 1,1992 the co-op i nvited the town to a celebration. That evening the newly formed Lake Placid Mural S ociety unveiled their first mural rendering, Southwinds,which was to be painted by artist Thomas Freeman on the side of theC aladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative. Freeman donated the first mural to the Mural Society. He will always be part of the historyo f the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative,and the L ake Placid Mural Society.

After talking it over they decided they were too oldt o fly all that way,so they decided to take a plane. As they were about tob oard the aircraft,the flight attendant,noticing that both buzzards were carrying a dead armadillo,asked, Would you like to check those armadillos through as luggage? No thanks,the buzzards replied, There carrion.(Maggie Van Ostrand) Carrion actually means the dead a nd decaying flesh of an animal. Many creatures in the natural w orld depend on this food source. Caracaras are among the scavengers that consider carrion ani mportant part of their survival. Even though most vultures,buzz ards and other species of scavengers are thought of with some amount of disgust,it is vital to have such creatures around to get rid of the waste. C aracaras are large birds that are related to the falcon. The Crested caracara is found in North America,Central America andS outh America. The bird is easily identified by its black crest,red face,blackish-gray body and yellow legs. They also sport white patches on the neck,chest and tipo f the tail. These large birds have a body length of 19-23 inches,a 4foot wingspan and weigh from 1 3 3 1 pounds. These birds are federally prot ected and considered threatened in Florida. The most serious threat to these magnificent animals is loss of habitat. Caracaras need large,open country and the loss of such habitath as caused their populations to decline. Most of these birds now reside on private land,which doesn ot fall under federal protection. They prefer open,lowland countryside such as pastures,savannas,r iver edges and ranches. Caracaras are monogamous and u se the same tree to construct their nests every year. They build their nests from sticks and generallyc hoose a palm,cactus,tree or the ground. They usually breed from S eptember through June. Most of the eggs are laid from late December through early February. The female usually lays from two to three eggs,which are incubatedi n about a month. Once hatched, the fledglings take up to three months before they are ready to fly as independent birds. O ne thing they have going for them is their diet. They are opport unistic feeders and will eat most anything and perform amazing feats to acquire food. Their maind iet is carrion,however,they also feed on small mammals,amphibi ans,reptiles,fish,eggs,insects, worms and baby birds. They will fly the highways in the mornings to pick off road kill that was hit during the night. They also steal foodf rom other birds; if they see another bird with food,they have been known to wrestle it away from them. These strange birds havee ven forced other birds,such as the brown pelican,to disgorge their c atch and then take that away as well. Caracaras will also scratch on the ground and dig for worms andb ugs. Even though they are excellent f lyers,they spend much of their time on the ground. They have long legs and walk across open territory looking for food. They have few,if any,natural predators that prey ont hem. If threatened,they make a shrieking noise and throw their heads back and then snap it forward. C rested caracaras are good flyers. They steadily flap their wings and soar fairly low to the ground. Their flight pattern generally consists of many twists and turns andt hey are somewhat slow in the air. While caracaras can tolerate some human interference,they are most sensitive during nesting season. L ike many other species of birds, if they feel threatened during this time,they may take off,leaving the eggs or young to fend for themselves. Since nesting usuallyo ccurs in the winter,abandonment is usually a death sentence for eggs and fledglings since they are nota ble to protect themselves from exposure to the elements. Caracaras will not approach theirn est to feed the babies if humans are around the area. F ledglings have a voracious appetite and need to be fed often. Death from malnutrition or starva-t ion for the young may occur if adults are kept from the nests.

Crested caracaras will do most anything for a meal Courtesy photo Caracaras are opportunistic feeders and will eat most anything and perform amazing feats to acquire food. Their main diet is carrion, however, they also feed on small mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish, eggs, insects, worms and baby birds. N ews From T he W atershed Corine Burgess

C M Y K Associated Press NEW YORK Lil Wayne is not only making rap history,hes making rock n roll history:the rapper has surpassed Elvis Presley as the male with the most entries on Billboards Hot 100 chart. Lil Wayne now has 109 songs on that chart with Thursdays debut of Games song Celebration,where he is a guest alongside Chris Brown,Tyga and Wiz Khalifa. Of his 109 charted songs,only 42 are led by Lil Wayne; 67 are songs where he is the featured act. Thursday is the rappers 30th birthday. Presley totaled 108 songs on the Hot 100 since it launched in 1958. Presles career kicked off before that and several of his songs like Heartbreak Hotel could not be included in his total number. The Gleecast has the most Hot 100 entries with 204.Bryn Mawr to honor rocker Patti SmithBRYN MAWR,Pa. (AP Rock music veteran Patti Smith will be honored by Bryn Mawr College for her artistic accomplishments and pioneering spirit. The womens liberal arts school near Philadelphia announced that Smith will receive the 2013 Katharine Hepburn Medal. The college on Wednesday called Smith a trailblazer in the male-dominated world of rock nroll.She also wrotea critically acclaimed memoir in 2010. Bryn Mawr will award the Hepburn Medal to Smith on Feb. 7. By SUE MANNING Associated PressL OS ANGELES For puppies and kittens,size really does matter. Shelters say smaller animals get adopted faster,anda nimal experts say the runt of a litter tends to be better protected by the mother. Pet owners-to-be tend to heap attention on them,since there attracted to big headso n little bodies. Humans are drawn to anim als or beings of any kind whose proportion of eyes to head is large,said Dr. JulieM eadows,a faculty veterinarian at the William R. P ritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital at the University of California, Davis. s why we all coo when we lookat babies,w hether there human or animal. F or runts destined to become family pets,their size is their greatest riskb efore birth but also their greatest appeal after birth. Its the underdog,undercat thing,said Gayle Guthrie,founder-director ofS tray Love Foundation in Magnolia Springs,Ala. At Stray Love,smaller resc ue dogs are adopted five times faster than the larger o nes. Meadows said that could be a result of the growing popularity of so-called pocket puppies. Pet owners are looking f or that really cute runt equivalent,almost like we are selecting for runted creatures because we like those little things that can ride around in our purses and strollers and never weighm ore than 5 pounds, Meadows said. A litter has only one true runt,but not every litter will have a runt. Litter-bearing mothers haveY-shaped uteruses. Those at the centero f the Y get the least amount of food and have the greatest chance of being runts,while those closest to the mothers blood supply get the mostn ourishment. When runts are born,they have to fight harder because they are small,weak,and others often pick on them or push them away from their f ood source. All of these things tend to press on the m other in many of us to protect them,Guthrie said. In most cases,if the runt of a litter makes it to six to eight weeks,it will probablys urvive and likely grow close to full size,experts said. C heddar,the runted kitten of an abandoned litter that Kristin Ramsdell fostered fort he Black and Orange Cat Foundation,now weighs m ore than 7 pounds. He weighed less than half a pound when he was found inJ une 2011 with the rest of his 8-week-old littermates. At 8 weeks,a kitten should w eigh between 1.5 and 2 pounds,Ramsdell said. I stayed up for three straight days with him,giving him fluids and antibiotics, warming him with IV bags heated in the microwave,u sing a humidifier and watching him round-the-clock. I didnt think he would make it,she said. Cheddar and one of his siblings,Colby,have been adopted by a Philadelphia family and are thriving,Ramsdell said. T hat special attention required to bring some runts t o health can create a special bond. Runts arent welcomed everywhere,though. Wilbur, the classic runted pig in thec hildrens book Charlottes Web,was saved from s laughter with the help of a spider,but animal agriculture and food producers in reall ife arent as forgiving. A pig farmer thinking a bout Easter hams will probably cull runts from his pens because they will never reacht he body size needed for meat production,Meadows explained. E ven some animal welfare groups wont champion all r unts to families. The Cat Adoption Team in Oregon wants to place as many kittens as possible,but it will draw the line with somer unts,said operations manager Kristi Brooks. If there are a lot of rambunctious kids,we suggest that a bigger kitten might fare better,she said.

C M Y K Dear Abby: A year ago I r emarried and gained three great stepkids. Im worried about the oldest,who is a senior (18t care about school anymore. Shess mart enough. When she tries,she gets As. But when she doesnt want to do the work,she gets Fs. There is no in-between. Shes capable,but lazy. Her youngest sister (12 doing the same thing now, too. Neither one is using drugs or alcohol or skipping school. They are fundamentally good kids. I recognize that its laziness because I did the same thing 30 years ago. What turned me around was the U.S. Navy. I literally grew up on an aircraft carrier. Abby,until now I had only sons. I understand boys and men. Having daughters now is a very steep learning c urve. I need suggestions on how to help their mom parent them through this rough period. I love our children deeply and want to be thek ind of stepdad God wants me to be for them. Clueless Stepdad Dear Clueless: For a man who signed himself clueless, you have clear insight. You and your wife should schedule an appointment with the oldest girls school counselor and find out to what degree her grade point average has been affected by her laziness. Then ask your stepdaughter what she plans to do after high school. Does she plan to go straight into a minimum-wage job if she can find one with little chance of advancement? Trade school? College? If she wants to further her education,she needs to understand that schools pay attention to applicantshigh school records. At 18,she should be treated like the young adult she is,and you and her mother deserve some answers. The 12-year-old is another story. Find out from her teachers whether she has fallen behind in any of her classes and see that she gets tutoring if she needs to catch up. Make sure she completes her homework assignments. Y ou and her mother should impress upon her that you expect the best shes capable of,and for good grades there will be rewards just as forp oor grades there will be consequences,such as reduced privileges. Then practice what you preach. Dear Abby: My husband and I are retired. He has a small farm,which isnt profitable,so he calls it his hobbyfarm. When we retired,we agreed to have our main meal at noon every day. I work hard to have a nutritious meal on the table promptly at 12 noon. My husband knows this,but he comes in from working whenever hes ready sometimes hours late. He always has an excuse. He has a cellphone and c ould call to let me know hes going to be late,but he rarely does. When he finally gets in,the food is cold andI am upset. H e thinks Im unreasonableto expect him to be on time or call. He has never cooked a meal in his life,so he has no idea what is involved. Im fed up with his behavior and need some suggestions on how to handle this. Boling Mad in Alabama Dear Boiling Mad: Perhaps agreeing to have your main meal together at noon was unrealistic. Talk calmly to your husband and ask if it would be more practical to schedule it for 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. That he wouldnt call to let you know hes running late does seem inconsiderate,and if the p roblem persists,it might be better for both of you if his main mealconsists of a sandwich he makes for himself whenever he finallyr eturns home.

Solution on page 10B We were the three amigos.T hree cousins, who hung together,sang trios together and just basically werec lose relatives. Actually,both were my cousinsone from my fatherss ide and one from my mothers side. However each of those was not a blood cousin with the other. Yet we claimed each o ther as such. On a scratchy 45 recordi ng we once made together, each voice says,This is Margaret,this is Linda andt his is Janet.Then we sang some childrens c hurch songs. What fun to hear my cousins voices and mine when we were young children. Close relatives usually h ave much in common (just being part of the same fami ly tree); but,also,in things they like to do and talk about. Y et,close relatives maintain their individuality, u nique personalities,abilities and talents. Blending those elements developedo ur closeness as we influenced one another. There are two words in S cripture that have been jumping out at me lately. T hey are close relatives. They come from the same family; instill the same values and commonality; but, still have individual traits. T hose two words are trust and abiding. When I trust God,I am declaring that no matter what happens,who I am, where I go,no matter how I feel, n othing can separate me from his love. He has proven himself to me and is depend-a ble. When I abide in God,I practice his presence acknowledging him in e very part of my life,in every thought and activity of each day. As these two virtues overlap,they also have individual characteristics. I c ant abide in someone in whom I dont believe and t rust. But once I place my trust in Jesus Christ and his finished work on the crosst o pay for my sins,I am called into a relationship in w hich abiding will nourish my trust. In John 15:4,NKJV Jesus clarifies the abiding relationship with his trust-i ng disciples by saying, Abide in Me,and I in you. A s the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,unless it abides in the vine,neitherc an you,unless you abide in Me. W hisper Jesusname in trust and you will be aware of his abiding presence. S o come to the Lord and trust him with your eternal life and this life here on e arth. Then move in with him and he with you. Seek f or,long for,thirst for,wait for,see,know,love and hear himthen respond. Fruit will abound. Adopt these two close r elativestrusting and abidingtoday.

Regular bedtimes and nightly family meals help foster healthier kids who are better prepared to tackle challenges. But some of your familys routine habits may be getting in the way of something better. Habits get established for any number of reasons busy schedules,convenience,or not realizing you have other choices. Shortcuts and timesavers can give you more time to spend together,but they could also be shortchanging your experience.HowtoChangeaHabitBreaking habits can be tough,but luckily there are many ways to reach your goals. Here are some simple questions and tips to help you break any bad family habits,and establish new,better ones. Whats the habit?Get everyone together and talk about what family habit you would like to change. Is it unhealthy eating? Too much TV? Always running late? Start small and keep it simple. If everyone is involved in the conversation,youre more likely to get everyones buy-in and meet with success.Whats the reward?People stick to habits because something rewards that behavior. The reward makes it easier for the brain to put the behavior on autopilot, and before you know it,you have a habit. But the reward may not be that obvious. You may have to try out different rewards to discover what the true payoff for the bad habit really is. For example,you might discover that the real reward of watching TV after dinner is spending time together as a family.Whats the plan?Once you identify the habit and understand its reward,you can come up with a family plan to start a new habit with new and better rewards for everyone.IdeasforNewRoutinesHere are some common family habits that could use a little revamping and some easy ways you can make a positive change.TVHabits After a long day,the couch seems to be calling you to just sit and watch TV even though you know you could or should be doing other things. But you dont have to be stuck in a TV rut. Talk about it as a family and see if you can figure out what your reward is for watching TV. Is it time together? Is it relaxation? Or is it enjoying a good story? Once you identify the reward,look for some other ways to get it.TogethernessIf its about being together,brainstorm some other family activities. Think about family game night,backyard soccer,arts and crafts projects,or time at the neighborhood park. RelaxationIf its just about chilling out,try substituting other relaxing activities like listening to music,or even just talking.Story timeIf you all enjoy the story element of your favorite TV shows,how about looking for new stories? Set aside some individual reading time,or let everyone take turns reading aloud from their favorite book. Reading a whole story as a family is a fun activity and younger kids may enjoy acting out their favorite scenes.InformationHabitsFamilies need to get information about pet grooming deals, kid-friendly restaurants,or vacation tips and deals. With a time crunch and the force of old habits its easy to rely on the same source for answers. But using the same search engine out of habit could be letting you down. For example, when it comes to search,people chose Bing web search results over Google nearly 2 to 1 in blind comparison tests.* In addition to useful results,Bing also offers access to your social networks like Facebook,Twitter,LinkedIn,Quora and more,letting you exchange ideas and discover what your friends are searching to help you spend less time hunting and more time doing. You can test if changing your habit is right for you with the Bing It On Challenge at www.bing.com.Eating Habits Full schedules often lead to fast food dinners or junk foods for snacks. While a quick meal when youre busy may seem like a reward,it really adds up to spending extra money and adding extra calories. These ideas still get you food quickly, but with a much healthier payoff.Take a look at your weekly schedule and plan meals and snacks accordingly. If you know a particular night is hectic,you can plan a make-ahead meal and healthier on-the-go snacks to take with you. Keep healthy options handy. Apples are the perfect fast food just pop one in your bag or stash one in the cup holder in your car. Pre-measure individual servings of trail mix or nuts and keep them in snack sized container s so you can just grab one and go. If you do have to grab a fast food meal,try to make smarter choices. Go for grilled chicken instead of breaded and fried,salad instead of a burger,and apple slices instead of fries. Remember,while some habits and routines can be helpful,its a good idea to re-examine them now and then to see if,with a few small changes,your family could be better off.
