Saturday morning just as the streets around Sebrings downtown Circle Park weref illing up,along with the beer cups,Barney and other volunteers were busy directing traffic around the Circle onto the spoke streets forp arking.

It was back in J uly when commissioners voted to terminate form er administrator Rick Helms by a 3 -2 vote. Led by commission chairman Jack Richie, along with commissioners BarbaraS tewart and Ron Handley, the action vaulted thenassistant county administrator June Fisher into the post with commissioners saying they needed to get their house in order. Apparently,the idea was to get past the end oft he budget period and give the commission t ime to develop their vision for what they wantedf rom a county administrator.

The girls were all between 7 and 9 years old. Gonzales was convicted o f the charges in July and sentenced to 13 years in p rison. Two sets of parents filed a civil lawsuit in May 2012.T he suit claims the school administration disregarded r eports of possible molestation for some time,and neglected to take any action. The suit also alleges that Gonzales,who was not as chool or school board employee,was allowed u nsupervised access to students by his wife,Maria Gonzales,46,who did worki n the after-school program. On Oct. 2 three more f amilies joined the suit. Allen Sang,of Winter Haven,is the attorney for T he School Board of Highlands County. He told the News-Sun Friday that he has not yet seen the new complaints,but he guessedt hey would be similar to those already on the docket. re just beginning discovery,Sang said. re waiting on docu-m ents from the plaintiffs and the sheriff.It is too e arly in the process to have any comment,he added.

The Florida Department of State on Friday confirmed that it has forwarded complaints about voter registration fraud that have been filed against the Democrats,as well as two other groups the Florida New Majority Education Fund and the National Council of La Raza/Democracia USA. State election officials, as well as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement,provided few details on the complaints,including whether it is limited to just one county or how many voter registration forms are at issue.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING Positive Medical Transport,owneda nd operated by Ron Layne, was honored Thursday night b y the Industrial Development Authority andt he Highlands Economic Development Commission, with their Business Excellence 2012 award. Ron and Positive Medical T ransport embody everything a business should be in its community,said Paul McGehee,the IDA-EDC director. Beyond his job cre-a tion and investing in the county,is his commitment to the community. Hes everywhere,volunteering time and effort. McGehee said Laynes c ontributions made choosing him easy. In fact,this is the third time Layne has been honored by the IDA-EDC. In 2008,he and Positive M edical Transport were named Start-up Business of t he Year. In 2011,they were named Small Business of theY ear. Layne spoke with the News-Sun Friday. Thanks to the community,Layne said. Glory be toG od I never forget there are things outside myself that are more valuable than I am. Layne ,however,made it clear he is far from alone,or,i n Highlands County,even rare,with that outlook. I cant think of any agency that has done more ( for business) than the IDAE DC,he said,adding he has n ever worked with as many community-minded people as he has here. Highlands County has a great base of volunteers,people who give their time without any expectation of reimbursement,but are critical to success,hes aid. They are great examp les for our youth who see what (the adults with their time. Seeing the e xample,the kids think,ll c ommit some time in my l ife. L ayne said private enterp rise is the best way to become inspired. There is the struggle to achieve,he said,and you are rewarded for your achievement. He strongly believes in d oing business locally that is using local vendors and professional resources. All our tires are bought here,he said,as an example. As much as we can,we keep it int he county. That is also where he looks for new hires he already employs 150. Business is good,Layne said,and he looks forward to upgrading software and disp atching technology to keep up with the compans e xpansion. Positive Medical Transportation now offers s ervice in Polk County an d C lewiston. Layne wants to buy property in Highlands County,and hopes to build a new headquarters here. But a business no matter h ow large,is nothing without its community,Layne said. Part of his success in Highlands County,has been b ecause of the number of good,core believing people. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, October 7, 2012Page 3A GRIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 10/7/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 3 3 9 9 4 4 7 7 Courtesy photo Fifth-graders at Lakeview Christian School in Lake Placid show some of the ziggurats they made to share with their class. S pecial to the News-SunL AKE PLACID Each year,the fifth-graders at L akeview Christian School begin their studies in world history by learning about the Sumerians,an ancient people who lived in the southernr egion of Mesopotamia. Mesopotamia was between t he Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in what is now modern day Iraq. A ll the students look forward to building ziggurats a nd bring them to share with the class. A ziggurat is a Sumerian temple built in laye rs,with each ascending layer a little smaller than the o ne below. Many ancient peoples used this building style all around the world. The students can create ziggurats of any sizea nd out of any material,as long as it is at least four laye rs tall. Over the years,the ziggurats have been made out ofe verything from sugar cubes, to golf balls,to soft drink c ans. Some students strive for authenticity and make theirs look like actual temp les,and others get creative and try to think of an original i dea. Many bring edible ziggurats such as brownies or cakes to share with the class. This years fifth-graders used Kleenex boxes,ricec rispy treats,plastic cups, and Styrofoam to create their z iggurats. Creating ziggurats is sort of tradition at Lakeview,and the fifth-g raders this year all agree that they will always recogn ize a ziggurat whenever they see one. Lakeview Christian students learn about ziggurats S pecial to the News-SunAVON PARK At approximately 11:50 a.m.F riday,Highlands County Sheriffs Office Central Dispatch received a call ofa burglary in progress at 598 E.

Reportedly there already has been an effort to hire Fisher outright,witha number ofcitizens approaching at leastsome commissioners and urging them to dispense with any kind of search for an outside administrator. Instead,theyhave suggestedsimply naming Fisher as county administrator on a full-time basis. It was in April of last year that commissioners voted4-1 to elevateFisherfrom her then-post as community services division director to assistant county administrator with an approximately $16,000 increase in salary/benefits,which translated to a roughly 10-percent increase over her compensation package at that time. Fisher first worked as a planner for Highlands County 20 years ago. She later worked as a planner in Glades and Desoto counites, moving on to roles as interim county manager in Desoto with county manager stints in both Glades and Citrus counties. In 2008 she resigned from the Citrus Countyjob to take a position as Highlands County Community Services Director under then-county administrator Carl Cool. After Helms was terminatedthis pastJuly,there was some discussion about waiting until after the election to search for a full-time replacement. Not all members of the board favored that approach, including current board chair Jack Richie. In addition to a discussion on what to do about hiring a county administrator,commissioners are slated to accept a $44,380 check from the Avon Park Air Force Range. The money represents 40-percent of the net receipt of sales of timber from the range. Supervisor of Forest Management/Outdoor Recreation Kurt Olsen will be at the meeting to present the check and talk about that operation. The meeting will be held at the Highlands County Government Center Tuesday morning commencing at 9 a.m. It also may be viewed online through the Highlands County Clerk of Courts web page.

T he Sebring police are to be commended for respondi ng to citizen complaints and taking action. There are people,however, w ho have concerns about individual cases. R on Hancock,one of the men arrested,visited the News-Sun to firmly announce his innocence. He said he will plead not guiltya nd fight the charges. He said the lack of privacy in the m ens room was the reason he was arrested. The News-Sun reminds e veryone that the legal system requires us to withhold j udgment until a suspect is f ound guilty as charged. We wait for the full facts of each case to emerge in court,andh ave confidence that in the long run,justice will be done, whatever the resolution. T here is no such caution, however,regarding the cond itions of the restroom itself. A retired minister,Floyd Holland,came to the News-S un after reading about the arrests. He told us he had b een to the mens room during a recent prayer gathering, scouting it because of the children attending. He said he was appalled ... Therew as no way I would use it. You have to sit in total view. I would have been charged if I had stood up. The News-Sun made a visit f or a first-hand inspection. The rest room is starkly f unctional,with painted,bare c inder block walls and no mirrors. It was clean the day we visited. There is a wall ata right angle to the entrance, blocking an immediate view inside. Once in the roomi tself,however,there is indeed no privacy,except at t he urinal. Both commodes and the two changing stalls do noth ave doors. Without doors, the changing booths are usel ess and the commodes fully exposed. It is absolutely no place for children. The problem,according to Bob Hoffman,Sebringsa ssistant administrator,was constant vandalism over m any years. Stall doors were consistently torn right off their hinges. It got to thep oint,Hoffman said,the city had to give up because of the f utility and the expense. Hoffman added stall door vandalism is a problem in other public bathrooms,too. So what do we do? Clearly we have to protect our children,but answersd ont come easy. Should cameras be installed at the entrance or police conduct frequent p atrols,or the city hire a priv ate secutiry guard? Should stall curtains be installed instead of doors? Or,shouldt he restroom be closed down a ltogether? W e dont have a suggestion a t the moment. We have observed over the years,however,that the more goodpeople use a public space,the fewer badpeople hang around. A solution may be as simple as families using the restr oom more often; taking it back and crowding out those men with sexual urges and noi mpulse control. W hatever we do,the point is,something has to be done. The Veterans Beach mens room has been an unfortunate problem for many years,attracting men who engage in public sex acts. The sex sting operation conducted by the Sebring police in September is not the first,nor is it likely to be the last. Time to take back whats been stolen from us Fleck is not afraid to learn new waysEditor: For the past 21 years,my children and I have had the blessing of spending time with one of the strongest,hardest working women we know. From the first time we met Rebecca Beck Fleck (aka Grandma Becky),I knew she was a person we would cherish, learn from and grow to admire. Throughout the years,we have celebrated birthday parties,family gatherings,and accomplishments large and small. Becky is an inspiration and an example of how to successfully manage a highly demanding job as well as a very busy family. Her door has been permanently open to her adopted family. Always accommodating,always gracious,always willing to pull up an extra chair and pour another glass of sweet tea,Becky makes even the unexpected guest feel welcome,invited and at home. Her home reflects her beliefs: child centered,well organized,budget conscious,high tech,active,functional, productive,fun,flexible,learning environment. Without doubt,these same qualities are reflected in her job performance and demonstrated in her leadership. How so? She is prepared for her presentations,innovative,quick on her feet,an outstanding speaker,well balanced,fore thinking,and secure in her knowledge base. She isnt afraid to learn something new or take on a challenge. Becky sets the bar high and refuses complacency. I want to express my sincerest gratitude and my unabashed support for Rebecca BeckLeaphart Fleck for superintendent. On Nov. 6,get out and vote for a better school system,a higher level of expectation,and making our children the priority. Jennifer DelPrete SebringMens bathroom needs a lot of workEditor: My name is Pastor Floyd Holland. I am a resident of Sebring ever since 1988. My wife and I pastored our own church in Flint,Mich.,for more than 30 years. After coming to Sebring,we pastored in Lake Placid for about five years. We are in no way novices to the pastoral ministry. I accepted the regional superintendent position of our fellowship and I stepped down from pastoral ministry,and I now go about helping young ministers get started in their ministry. Recently,I read an article in the News-Sun about sexual crimes at Veterans Beach. I was privileged to go to a recent prayer gathering at Veterans Beach to pray over our great city and to pray that God would do away with all matter of crimes against God and once again bless not only our city,but our great nation. I was very disturbed and appalled with the condition that I found the mens restroom in. The stalls in the bathroom have no doors to close when you go into the toilets. When you go in the toilets,you have to sit in total view of anyone that comes into the toilet. It makes me wonder how many men have been charged with exposing themselves in public unjustly. If anyone is in the bathroom,they are in perfect view of the individual sitting on the stool. I highly believe that if the city of Sebring is going to support Veterans Beach as a public place for us to come and bring our children to,that the city has an obligation to see that we have privacy when we have to use these restrooms. I feel that this situation should be resolved and doors to these stalls be installed. I myself,being a minister, could just as easily be charged with exposing myself in public,just by the simple fact that when I would stand to raise my trousers,I would be in jeopardy of exposing myself to anyone that is in there at that time,including undercover agents. Floyd D. Holland SebringRomney cant relate to living on minimum wageEditor: My comments are directed to anyone receiving Social Security,Medicaid, food assistance or any other type of government benefits. I began paying taxes at age 14 and have recently retired. Mitt Romney labels retirees as victims receiving government handouts. Under the guise of less government he has vowed to abolish the minimum wage. Mr. Romney is not capable of relating to surviving on minimum wage. I urge anyone living on Social Security to send Mr. Romney a clear message. We earned the check we receive. Sharon Davidoff Sebring This week Ive been in Oregon,attending yet another workshop. Thew eather,what Ive seen of it,is gorgeous. Most of the t ime I have been indoors, sitting in lectures or hunched over my laptop,t rying to apply what Ive learned. B ecause of the schedule, ve had very little time to contemplate whats going o n in the outside world. This applies especially to politics,which I am certain has been running rampant as it has the entire electionc ycle. I havent had a radio on. Theres a television in my room,but it has remained off. While Ive gotten theo ccasional news alert in my email or phone,for the m ost part Ive been off news websites. Its them iddle of the week as I type this and Ive only been on Facebook once. And while I know a debate will be taking place this week,c hances are I will be away from any means of seeing it. Another factor in my ignorance is that one of ther ules in this workshop is that religion and politics are forbidden topics. We are here,the teachers told us,to focus on our writing, not argue philosophies. Wve managed to more or less keep to this rule, which is remarkable considering we are a bunch of crazy writers from all kinds of backgrounds. This whole week is of course not my normal schedule. I havent had to cook,do laundry,or any of the other mundane things that make up my life. This is not all good,since Ive also been doing without my several-times-a-week coffee from Brewsters and while I can find decent coffee here in Oregon it just isnt the same. Its a weird and artificial thing,being so unaware of events moving in the world. I think there are those who live like this all the time,not caring for anything beyond their own small circle of influence. What is scary is that some of these people probably vote despite their ignorance. Im not sure why. But I can understand the allure of being out of the l oop. My blood pressure has probably benefitted from being insulated fromp olitical news. I havent had to yell at a radio or tele vision in days. My eye rolls have been kept to a minimum. S o yeah,this break has had its cool side. Im not sorry Im taking it and focusing on my career for a little while. Sometimes itst ake a break or lose whats left of your mind. It can be healthy. But it doesnt mean I intend to spend the rest ofm y life like this. A break is one thing,the rest of my l ife is quite another. Knowledge is important, e specially this year,when we have important decisions to make. Once Im home and back into what I laughingly call my nor-m alroutine I intend to dive right back into the political world,with all its frustrations and furies. I even intend to take a whacka t the Florida amendments, which will test my intelligence and my patience. But this week? This week I will concentrate on books and stories and the frustrations of driving new computer programs. Politics will stay safely at arms length until I return. After all,its only October. The political season isnt going anywhere. If this election cycle is making you crazy,think about taking a few days and do what Ive done. Turn off the radio and television. Refrain from online news sites. Let the newspaper pile up. Youll be surprised at how good youll feel. But do come back at some point. Do your homework at some point. We need informed voters more than ever. Be one of them. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by email at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com.

On the side,almost for fun, he began an ammunition remanufacturing business. As his ammunition busin ess took off and construction ground to a halt, Anderson began working full time and building his company. Im a lifetime shooter. My 4-H club won regional and state,he said. It felt like my calling. He has been at it for five y ears,and said Anderson Arms is now the fifth largest ammunition remanufacturingc ompany in the country. In terms of new ammunition manufacturing,its 15th. I n an interview Friday, Anderson said he had not b een thinking about seeking public office,but friends and business associates asked him to run. They kept sayingt hat things had to change,he said. It kind of made me think about serving. I live here and my family lives here. Its only right. A nderson added the majority of people to approach him all own businesses inside the city,but most of them do not live within city limits. They say to me,we dont have a voice,we dont live here,but you do. Be our face,dont let it get worse, improve things,he said. A nderson feels the city needs to break from the good old boys network. Heb elieves the time has come to create a true open-door policy. We need to let folksk now whats going on,he said. Right now there is a l ack of communication. As to what can help Avon Park to prosper,Anderson points to his own business asa n example of the future. e mostly sell outside the state,he said. That brings outside money into the city. The more that comes in,them ore we have to work with. He believes the city is losing vital services. He worries that unless Avon Park can provide benefits for its citi-z ens,it will be impossible to convince new families or businesses to move in. We need to take a look at what a city does,he said. A t the same time, Anderson wants the city to be self-sufficient and not rely ont he county or state. While he believes in rewarding people who show promise by help-i ng them with a bump up,he worries that welfare prog rams rob individuals of ambition. The Avon Park has an exciting future,Anderson said,because Highlands C ounty is in the middle of the state,ideal for distributing businesses. He also hopes to attract more manufacturi ng,again using his compans policy of reaching out ofc ounty as an illustration. Anderson Arms,he said,is s eeking military contracts. Should enough contracts m aterialize,Anderson would be able to create many more jobs,all of them skilled labor with wages above minimum wage. H e wants to help other s mall businesses grow and f lourish as his has,he said, because in the end its thrivi ng business that keeps a c ommunity healthy. C ontinued from page 1A the first drive-in window.A white male with blond hair, sitting in the back seat behind the driver,ordered$ 5.35 worth of food and offered a $20 bill and 35 cents in payment. When the McDonalds employee took the bill,ther eport continues,the employee could tell it was counterfeit by the texture of the paper,lack of security markings and the fact thec ounterfeit pens ink turned black when marking the paper. T he assistant shift manager was notified,double checked the bill and saw thes ame discrepancies. This didnt take long, a bout a minute,the police were told,at which point the truck drove off withoutc ollecting either food or change. W ith the red truck and Florida license tag filmed by the security video,identifying information was communicated to other lawe nforcement units. As the investigating offic er completed his initial investigation,he was cont acted by another officer who was with three white males and one white female in the Sebring Walmart parking lot. They all camef rom a red F150 Ford matching the video. The driver of the truck was questioned. He said he had driven Null to ther estaurant,but pulled past the window so Null could talk with the cashier directly. The driver said he had no idea what was happening.A ll he knew,he said,was Null told him it was taking too long,and to go aheada nd leave. Police brought the McDonalds employee toW almart,where the suspect was identified. N ull was arrested and taken to Highlands County Jail. Upon being taken intoc ustody,police searched Nulls wallet where another 1 2 suspicious $20 bills were found. None of the bills had security markings, and all had the identical serial number. N ull is charged with possession of 10 or more count erfeit bills and fraud,both felonies. Continued from page 1A Anderson running for Avon Park City Council CAROL BOWER Carol L.

This is a four-year grant totaling $193,032. T he STOP ACT grant program provides funding for communitybased coalitions throughout the country to prevent and reduce alcohol use among youth ages 12-20. The program strengthens collabora-t ion among communities,as well as federal,state,local and tribal governments in efforts to instill an active commitment to prevent underage drinking. L ocally,these two coalitions are teaming up to reduce underage drinking by using four environmental strategies. Youth in Highlands and Hardee counties will have ano pportunity to participate in an exciting social media campaign that uses texts to deliver educational messages on underage drinking and alcohol.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgLAKE PLACID The skies were dark and foreboding Friday night as the Green Dragons hoped to make it through theirH omecoming game and fest ivities. And while the rains held o ff, allowing the King and Queen to be crowned at halftime, eight Tornadoes touched down during theg ame itself to pave the way f or a 57-27 win by visiting Sarasota Booker. They had some big p lays, head coach Jason Holden said afterward. We had some big plays of ouro wn, but with our numbers, t hey just wore us down. Those numbers would be the few players Lake Placid h as left, with their early season 33-man roster having been whittled down by i njuries to just over 20. And yet, the Dragons certainly were holding their own in the early going and even got on the board first. After each team had two possessions go unfulfilled, a Booker punt late in the first quarter was shanked toward the Lake Placid sideline. With a number of Tornado defenders racing upfield and, as yet, unaware of the wayward trajectory of the punt, Roscoe Johnson ran up and collected it on a bounce and raced 30 yards for the opening score. Freddy Morenos pointafter kick split the uprights and the Dragons were up 7-0 with 3:34 left in the opening period. But it took just 14 seconds for the first Tornado damage of the night when, on their first play from scrimmage on the next series, a 53-yard touchdown run got Booker on the board. The extra point was blocked by Chase Griffin, to momentarily maintain a 7-6 lead. Lake Placids defense held strong after that, and the offense soon began to move. Marquavian Copeland carried twice for seven yards, bridging the first and second quarters, and an offside penalty was followed by a Robert Walton Jr. to Dillon Hathaway pass for six yards. Eldon McKenzie broke off a seven-yard gain on the ground.

Special to the News-SunFORTMEADE The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC week to Fort Meade to take on the Fort Meade Miners on Saturday, Sept. 29. Going into week eight of the season, the Highlands Eagles football teams are nearing the end of the regular season. Each team is looking at the stats and the talk of playoffs is widespread throughout the Sunshine Police Athletic League (PAL) association. Each game day and every W that is earned gets them seeded higher as they are on the road to the playoffs. HYFC is proud to announce that all of the Highlands Eagles teams have made it to the Wildcard Round of the playoffs scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 27. The first game this week featured the Flag team. With a strong offensive drive, the Eagles took an early lead as quarterback Julian Cardoso handed off to Fred Hankerson for a touchdown. The offense continued to roll with multiple touchdowns by John Alexander and Hankerson. The defense made their presence known and stood strong with key plays by Cardoso, Alexander, Koda Cabrera, Romeo Castellanos, Clayton Hooks and Willie King. Add it all up and it totaled another win for the Eagles Flag team with a final score of 26-18. With the win, the Eagles Flag team record is 5-2 and in third place in the NFC division of the Sunshine PALLakeland League. The next game featured the Mighty Mights. The Eagles got an early score when Taivion Coston took a kickoff return all the way back for a touchdown. But the offense struggled in the second half. And while the defense fought hard with solid tacking by Xavier Mobley, Ronnie Roberts and Coston, the Miners defensive stance, costly turnovers and penalties thwarted all the Eagles efforts to get into the end zone. And when the dust had settled, the Eagles were on the wrong side of the 34-6 final score, bringing their record to 1-6 dropping them to fifth place in the division. The third game of the day was the Pee Wee team that looked to rebound after a tough loss to the Hornets last week. They got off to a great start with a 68-yard kickoff return by Kasey Hawthorne to take an early lead, 6-0. The defense took the field led by Darryl Holdman, Anthony Burch and Irvin Roberts to provide a strong stance holding the Miners off. The Eagles offense got strong blocking from lineman Joel Murillo, Austin Whidden and Jordan Rose, paving the way for quarterback James Pearson to pass the ball to Hawthorne for a 52-yard touchdown. The defense remained strong and the offense continued to romp with Camren Spaulding earning key yardage to lead to another 49-yard touchdown for Hawthorne. Going into halftime, the Highlands Eagles shut down Miners See HYF, Page 4B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE C hase Griffin, No. 32, and Johnny Vega give this Booker runner the old high-low Friday night in Lake Placids Homecoming loss to the visiting Tornadoes. Tornado touchdowns wear down Lake Placid See DRAGONS, Page 3B Special to the News-SunCLEWISTON Avon Park was forced to start its freshman quarterback as Ryan Dick was unable to play due to a hamstring injury suffered last week. That, combined with a freshman center and a y oung offensive line, was too much for the Red Devisl to overcome in Fridays 350 loss against the Clewiston Tigers. Avon Park's record dropped to 2-5 for the year, but more importantly they are now 0-2 in the district. Both teams were held scoreless in the opening quarter as it was a battle of field position. This was a battle that Avon Park would lose, though their stalwart d efensive effort held the line time and again. In the second quarter the Devils would stop Clewiston from scoring on four consecutive plays from the one yard line. Though it was a great defensive effort, Avon Park would take over on their own one and a bad snap would r esult in a safety for the Tigers. Ashanked punt, fumble and an interception later, Avon Park suddenly found itself behind 21-0 at the half. When you have a freshman quarterback and a freshman center, said Avon Park head coach Lee Brown, you expect to have s ome problems. The defense missed some tackles that should have been losses, but overall they did a good job. Clewiston added 14 more points in the third quarter to t ake a 35-0 lead. S tephone Godfrey carried the ball 15 time times for 38 yards.

B y DAN HOEHNE email@example.comThe night showed promise for both the Lady Blue Streaks and Red Devils. But Thursday nights key district matches also saw them both end on dour notes. Facing the visiting District 6-4Aleader, Avon Park gave DeSoto all it could handle. Back on Sept. 18, in Arcadia, the Lady Devils fell in four, getting a third-set win and reaching a highwater mark of 18 points among the losses. It started out Thursday as if it might be a repeat against the District 6-4Atop seed with a 25-16, opening-set loss. But the improvement over the last two-plus weeks was shown as Avon Park answered right back with a 25-21 win to even the match at a set apiece. The Bulldogs would bite back, flipping the script on the score and taking a 25-21 decision of their own. But making it three straight 25-21 scores in the fourth set, saw the Devils on the winning side to even it at 2-2 and force the rubber match. The back-and-forth, however, ended there, as DeSoto darted out of the gate and never looked back, taking a resounding 15-3 win in the clincher. This ended Avon Parks three match winning streak, district wins over Mulberry, Lake Placid and Frostproof, and now has the team at 3-3 in district play. The Lady Bulldogs improved to 6-1 with the win and secured their hold on the top seed. Two more district matches remain for the Devils, at Mulberry Tuesday and a home date against the Green Dragons Thursday, to shore up the seedings before the District Tournament at Lake Placid begins Monday, Oct. 22. In Sebring, the Lady Streaks suffered two losses Thursday night, one certainly influencing the other. Starting setter, Lindsey Whittington, came down wrong early in the match against visiting Lake Gibson and suffered a sprained Five no magic number for Streaks, Devils See VB, Page 4B

C M Y K By ANDREWSELIGMAN Associated PressCHICAGO Top high school recruit Jabari Parker plans to make official visits to Duke, Florida, Michigan State, Stanford and Brigham Young. His father, Sonny Parker, told The Associated Press that no other schools are in the running. He is going to take all those five visits and then hell decide, he said. Sonny Parker wasnt sure of the exact dates, although he did say Jabari will visit Duke at the end of the month and Florida in the first week of November. All five were among the 10 schools Parker said he was considering over the summer. DePaul, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina apparently did not make the cut. Nor did Connecticut, which made a home visit even though it was not on that list. He likes all the schools, Sonny Parker said. He liked all the programs. He liked all the coaches. ... When he visits, hell probably get more of a feel for the campus. Hell get a feel of the school and the players, the whole curriculum and everything. A6-foot-8 forward, Jabari Parker is one of the most prized recruits to come along in recent years. He received the Gatorade Boys Basketball Player of the Year after leading Simeon to its third straight state championship while averaging 19.5 points and 8.9 rebounds as a junior. He comes from the same high school that Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose attended, and his father played six seasons with the Golden State Warriors in the NBAafter starring at Chicagos Farragut Career Academy. Religion also plays a big role in Jabari Parkers life. He is a devout Mormon, just like his mother Lola Parker, and he rises at 5 a.m. three days a week to attend a Bible study at his church before school. Soon, Jabari Parker will have a big decision to make. He just wants to win, Sonny Parker said. He just wants a relationship with the coach and the players. He just wants to be better as a player, as a person.

T he Tornadoes then embarked on a 14-play drive that saw the Dragon defense bend, but not break, as theye ventually stopped it short of a score and got the ball back o n downs at their own 16. This drive, however, w ould be short lived and Booker showed itsquicks trike ability as just five plays later, an 18-yard pass play took the lead over with 56 seconds left in the half. Another interception halted the Dragons near midfield and after an incompletion, an apparent end-around turned out to be a halfback pass that caught Lake Placid flat-footed and upped the lead to 20-7 at halftime. And though this quick double whammy could have served as a knockout, the Dragons were about to get up off the canvas. Early in the third, Foster Walker broke off a long run and Copeland broke through some tackles on a run that brought it to the 14. Eldon McKenzie bulled it ahead five yards to get inside the 10 and Walton found Ricky Miller in the end zone. Morenos kick made it 2014 at the 8:18 mark. The Tornadoes, though, would answer right back, with two 17-yard pass plays and an 18-yard run leading to another score to push the lead back to 26-14. But Lake Placid had an answer of itsown as Walton and Miller hooked up again just a minute and a half later to cut it to 26-20. Another Booker score came 1:18 later and it was at this point that the tide seemed to turn. With few players to substitute, the starters were logging heavy and extended minutes and this furious, back-and-forth flurry began to wear them down. Then the Tornadoes got a bit of a lucky bounce as a downfield pass over the middle ricocheted off the intended receiver, but bouncedr ight two a secondary receiver for a score to make it 4220 with just under two minutes left in the third. A nother Booker score early in the fourth pushed the l ead to 50-20, but the Dragons would have one m ore swing. McKenzie ran through a c ouple initial, would-be tacklers and broke it outside for a 46-yard run to the Tornado four. Three straight runs up the middle netted zero yards, buta bit of trickery got the job done as a pitch to McKenzie in the backfield saw the junior southpaw toss it to a wide open Miller for his third touchdown catch of the night. Morenos boot was true and it was now 50-27. But the dye was cast and this was the last hurrah for the worn down Dragons, as Booker would break the plane of the goal line one more time to provide for the final margin. But while outgunned and outmanned this night, the effort this Lake Placid squad turned in was impressive. ou cant say enough about how hard these kids keep playing, Holden said. s tough when youre overmatched with the numbers week after week. But they keep coming out and keep working. ere seeing a lot of positives, he continued. There are still mistakes out there that we need to clean up, butI couldnt be prouder of the effort these players keep putting in and well keep moving forward. And if there was any worry about a morale boost needed, moving forward, the Dragons will certainly be motivated in practice this week as they are slated for a visit to Avon Park Friday. Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Eldon McKenzie broke this long run for 46 yards and would soon throw a halfback pass for a touchdown to complete this drive Friday. Dragons downed at AP Friday the night officially with seven yards on three carries, but had a couple of runs of 10 yards or more called back on penalties, which again resulted in pushing the Avon Park offense back deep in their own territory. With their second loss of the season in the district and three district games yet to play, Brown stated that they have not given up hope for the season. With that though he did not rule out starting some of younger players to get them valuable, on-field experience for next year. In a way, using the final four games as a testing ground to move the program for future years. Avon Park will be at home next week against long-time county rival Lake Placid. With the Green Dragons, it is also a District 6-4A matchup of two teams looking for that first district win.

The Olympic swimming great upstaged some of golfs finest players Friday by sinking an astonishing 153-foot putt during the second round of team play at the Dunhill Links Championship. The putt came after P helps drove the front edge of the green on the par-4 sixth hole at Kingsbarn. He then stepped up with his putter for his second shot, stroked the ball and watched as it rolled and rolled downhill and into the cup. It took about 17 seconds for the ball to land in the hole, or slightly quicker than it takes Phelps to swim 50 yards. Phelps, playing the team event with a 16 handicap, received a stroke on the hole and signed for an aggregate on his scorecard. That was the longest putt Ive ever holed, said the winner of 18 Olympic gold medals. It was pretty incredible, watching it dive in was a pretty cool feeling. So to be able to have a net hole-in-one was pretty special. Even without that, this trip would have been very special, just having the opportunity to come over here and play among some of these players has been absolutely incredible. Phelps recorded a net eagle twoat the next hole with pro partner Paul Casey. T hey moved to 9-under overall. Thailands Thongchai Jaidee and his amateur partner, Hugh Courtney Jr., lead the team format at 21 under. Different strokes: Phelps sinks 153-foot putt

Although its tempting to simply check same as last year,that can be a costly mistake especially if youre mployer is offering different benefit plans next year or your family or income situation has changed. Plus,an important feature of health care flexible spend-i ng accounts,which many people use to reduce their tax b ite,is changing next year (more on that below). Heres what to look for w hen reviewing your benefit options: M any benefit plans especially medical change coverage details from year to year. If youre offered more than one plan,compare fea-t ures side by side (including plans offered by your s pouse's employer) to ensure youre choosing the best alternative. Common changesi nclude: Dropping or replacing u npopular or overly expensive plans. Increased monthly premiu ms for employee and/or dependent coverage. Increased deductible a nd/or copayment amounts for doctor visits,prescription d rugs,hospitalization,dental or vision benefits,etc. Revised drug formularies. Doctors and hospitals s ometimes withdraw from a plan's preferred provider network. Raising maximum yearly out-of-pocket expense limits. If offered by your employer,health care and depend-e nt care flexible spending accounts (FSAsc an significantly offset the financial impact of medical a nd dependent care by letting you pay for eligible out-ofp ocket expenses on a pre-tax basis; that is,before federal, state and Social Securityt axes are deducted from your paycheck. This reduces your t axable income and therefore, your taxes. You can use a health care FSA to pay for IRS-allowed medical expenses not coveredb y your medical,dental or vision plans. Check IRS P ublication 502 at www.irs.gov for allowable expenses. Dependent careF SAs let you use pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible e xpenses related to care for your child,spouse,parent or other dependent incapable ofs elf-care. Heres how FSAs work: Say you earn $42,000 a year. I f you contribute $1,000 to a health care FSA and $3,000 f or dependent care,your taxable income would be reduced to $38,000. Your resulting net income,after taxes,would be roughly$ 1,600 more than if you had paid for those expenses on an after-tax basis. Keep in mind these FSA restrictions: Important:Effective Jan. 1,2013,employee contributions to health care FSAs are now limited to $2,500 a year;h owever,if your spouse has FSAs at work,you still may contribute up to $2,500 to each account. The dependent care FSA l imit remains unchanged at $5,000. Health care and dependent care account contributions are not interchangeable. Estimate planned expenses c arefully because you must forfeit unused account bala nces. Some employers offer a grace period of up to two months after the end of thep lan year to incur expenses, but thats not mandatory,so r eview your enrollment materials. Outside of open enrollment,you can only make mid-year FSA changes aftera major life or family status change,such as marriage, d ivorce,death of a spouse or dependent,birth or adoption of a child,or a dependentp assing the eligibility age. If one of those situations occurs m id-year,re-jigger your FSAs accordingly for maximum savings. Y ou must re-enroll in FSAs each year amounts dont carry over from year to y ear. Also remember that if you m arry,divorce,or gain or lose dependents,it could impact the type and cost of your coverage options. Jason Alderman directs Visas f inancial education programs.

C M Y K F all weather is settling in,and many animals have begun or will soon start for-a ging for winter. But it is still quite warm in the S unshine State,and wildlife is frisky and abundant, especially in your backyard. T ake a walk outside. Look in bushes,shrubs, grass,on flowers,in and u nder potted plants and on the walls of your house. A nd,dont forget to look up. Birds are perched in trees and soaring in the sky. How many critters can you find? W hile on my own backyard safari I saw a peculiar moth that didnt look like a moth at all. At first glance, it looks like a hummingbird but smaller and doesnt have a beak. It hovers overf lowers and flutters its wings a million times a seco nd just like hummingbirds, has a proboscis or antennae that sucks nectar out of flowers,more than two legs and an insect-like body. Id idnt view it for long because it zoomed off quicker than I could say hummingbird moth! The backyard is an oasis o f life. And,just because the sun goes down doesnt mean the critters go to sleep. Nighttime brings the sounds of raccoons shuffling leaves while foraging for food,crickets chirping and frogs croaking as the human world drifts off to sleep. In certain seasons, dusk brings the tiny flasheso f fireflies. Make a list of the animals you find. In my yard,I have fluttering zebra longwings and three zebra longwing caterpillars,Eastern black swallowtails,two bigg olden orb weavers,a vulture gliding above,chatteri ng squirrels,crickets, black swallowtail butterfly caterpillars chewing my parsley plant,snails and the list goes on. C an you identify a unique fact about the animals on your list? For example,zebra longwing caterpillarsmain foods ource is the passionflower vine. Young caterpillars chomp and chew on the vine until its time to transform into the beautiful adult yellow-and-black striped longwing that flutters in your garden,looking for nectar plants that feed them. Safety tip:While searchi ng,be sure not to handle or touch anything if you arent sure if it is harmless. If searching under logs,be sure to roll the log toward you in case there are any slithering creatures livingu nderneath. Rolling it toward you allows any s nake (usually the small, harmless ringneck,redbelly, earth or brown snakes) to slither away from you. Wear bug spray,sinces keeters are still biting,and have fun! Also,be sure to visit MyFWC.com/News for past Backyard Safari articles onz ebra longwings,golden orb weavers,green anoles and so much more.

They obtain minerals from the surface to build their shells. You can also see many on damp northern exposures of buildings, and especially in yards that are irrigated. Ophidiophobia is defined as an irrational fear of snakes. It is a relatively com-m on phobia,which can be traced back to early childhood experiences in many cases. Since the days of Adam and Eve,the serpento r snake,has been viewed as a vile and evil creature to many humans. In reality, these animals are simply part of the natural world and serve extremely importantf unctions as predators as well as being important links i n the food chain. If one would take the time to study snakes,they mayf ind out what fascinating creatures they are,and cert ainly would discover that they are not as scary as first imagined. Worldwide,there are about 2,700 species of snakes,with only 375 vari-e ties being poisonous. Chances of getting bitten by a poisonous snake are much less than being struck by lightning. S nakes are unusual and hardy creatures. They can m ove over searing hot surfaces as well as rough and rugged terrain. They are lit-e rally covered with plates and scales which serve as suits of armor. On the unders ide,snakes have rough scales which allow them to k eep their grip on branches, bark and rocks,enabling them to keep moving. Their scales are mostly waterproof as well,and most snakes area ble to survive in wet environments. Snakes dont have eyelids and they dont blink. Their eyes are covered with clear scales called a spectacle. When the snake is ready tos hed,which it does a few times a year,its eyes will u sually turn cloudy and it will rub against a rough surface to help rip the old,dead skin off. Underneath the dead scales,are bright,shiny newo nes. Many folks say snakes dont have bones,but they do. They are vertebrates witha backbone made up of many v ertebrae attached to ribs. In fact,snakes have between 100-400 vertebrae compared to a humans 33. That is why they are flexible enough to get into small places and slither around. In addition to multiple bones,snakes are equipped with strong muscles. These bones and muscles protect their more frag-i le internal organs. Since snakes dont havel egs,they have to use different techniques to move. Some vari-e ties of snakes bunch themselves up a nd then leap forward. Others push off of surfaces and move in a wavy motion.W hen confronted with a slippery surface,many snakes w ill throw their head forward and the rest of the body follows appearing as a side winding motion. Some snakes practice slow,creep-i ng,straight movement using the scales on their bellies to m ove forward. Snakes have some good senses and others not good ata ll. They have poor eyesight, but an excellent sense of s mell. Unlike other animals, snakes smell with their tongues. Most folks haves een the forked tongue shoot out of the mouth of snakes. The purpose is for t he moist tongue to collect different scents from whateve r it comes in contact with including the air. Once the tongue returns to the mouth, it touches special sensory organs on the roof of them outh,which identify to the snake what it just came in contact with. Snakes also have the ability to feel and absorb vibrations so that they can judge how large something is such as prey or ap redator. Did you ever wonder how s nakes can swallow such large prey? The reason is quite simple. Their jaws are not fused together,which enables them to enlarge theirm ouths enough to swallow big animals. They also have a small tube located at the bottom of their mouths which allows them to breathew hen their mouth is full. All snakes are carnivores. They swallow their food whole with no chewing involved. With powerful muscles within their throats, they can literally move the prey down the long throat into to the stomach. Both the throat and stomach can stretch to accommodate the food. Once swallowed,thep rey may take anywhere from a few days to two months to digest. Large birds,pigs,raccoons,coyotes,foxes and other snakes will all make a meal of a snake. Humans are also a cause for fear and concern to any snake. Many f olks kill every snake they see simply because they d ont like or fear them. Other s nakes are sold off as pets or c aptured for their skin. But as with most wildlife,habitat destruction is the biggest threat to snakes. In an effort to protect t hemselves,snakes have a v ariety of defensive mechan isms. Some camouflage into the scenery,while others burrow under the ground or leaf litter. Some make loud noises a nd mimic rattle snakes by moving their tails in nearby l eaves. Some even play opossum and flop themselves upside down,open their m ouths and hang their t ongues out! Most simply try to escape when they can. Like all things natural, s nakes play a vital role in the e nvironment. One of the main benefits humans derive f rom these slippery serpents is their keen taste for rodents. If not for snakes,m ice,rats and other pests would be far more numerous and disease would spread much more rapidly.Snake fun factsMost snakes are terrified of you. Their first instinct is u sually to hide. Snaks scales are composed of Keratin the sames ubstance as our fingernails. The thread snake is the smallest snake and measures only four inches long. The largest snake is the reticulated python which can grow to be 33 feet long. The thickest snake is the Anaconda,which can measure over 40 inches around. Studies have shown that cobras are faster learners than other snakes and can tell the difference in people.

In early summer,we brought the Vacation Bible School music DVD to North Carolina and let our grandchildren help us learnt he music,words and motions that we would be t eaching in a couple of weeks. Even more enthralling f or me was to see our 3year-old granddaughter, H ayley,sing,dance and copy the motions. Her precious voice (a truly melodic singing voice) joining in with ours and with theo ther children had me smiling from ear-to-ear. B ut,when we were out and about in the car one day and she began singingt he songs that she remembered (on key!),I got c hoked up.This little one was really catching the message and the joy ofs inging praise to God. Our 7-year-old grandson, Jonathon,was involved in a C ub Scout Day Camp for a week.Each day brought n ew challenges and adventures. And the truth in the songs became a strengthening of his confidence and courage knowing he couldt rust God in every situation. His soft voice from the back seat assured me the songs were helping him connect in a fresh way to the God hel oves. At home once again,we led the music for our VBS children.O nce again, theres nothing like hearing their young voices,seeing the light in t heir eyes and smiles on their faces when music of truth and beauty is presented to them. We read in Psalm 149:1, NKJV,Praise the Lord!S ing to the Lord a new song Let the children of Z ion be joyful in their King. Its important that we h elp children understand that God deserves to be p raised.Share with them that he is our Creator.Everything we can see animals,people, sky,sea,and more; as wella s what we cant see is made by him. He is Lord a nd,even when people get out of control,God is in control and we can trusth im no matter what. He is our Savior who forgives o ur sins because Jesus took our place on the cross. Jesus loves all the childreno f the world and all the grown-ups,too. With this foundation of t ruth,their praises will bubble up from their h earts,to their lips and to instruments they may play. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. (Psalm 150:6) Selah Jan Merop is a News-Sun correspondent. Beautiful praise P ause And C onsider Jan Merop Dear Abby: My Aunt Betty," with whom I have a lways been close,is 68 and retired. She is abusing prescription drugs and spendss everal days a week passed out or confused sometimes hallucinating. I rarely call her anymore because all she does is mumble and make odd comments. Sometimes she passes out on the phone. My uncle is in denial. He comes from a generation where family problems are kept within the family. He refuses to seek professional treatment for her or get her into detox. Caring for Aunt Betty is affecting his health, but he refuses to budge. Please dont tell me to notify her doctor I already tried. Aunt Betty is an accomplished manipulator and doctor shops until she finds new doctors who load her up when the old ones wont cooperate. She does have genuine health issues that require meds,but her doctors have said she would never be stoned if she used them properly. Confronting my aunt when she's coherent only makes her angry. She denies shes abusing drugs because they are all prescription. My mom is dead and Im worried about my aunt and uncles health. Help! Desperate Niece in Florida Dear Desperate: Start calling your aunt more often,because addiction is an illness and denial is one of the symptoms. Older people do react differently to medications than younger ones do,and a dose that might be tolerated when someone is middle-aged can be too great for a senior. Because your uncle isnt able to insist that your aunt get professional help,allow me to offer a suggestion. The next time she passes out during one of your phone conversations,do what youd normally do if someone else lost consciousness while talking to you. Call 911. When she winds up in the emergency room,her doctor will be alerted about the overdose. It would be a first step in seeing her get the help she needs. P.S. Theres a common misconception among older people that because a drug is prescriptionits somehow not addictive. And your aunt isnt the first person to fall into this trap. Dear Abby: Our wedding plans have taken a sudden turn. My fiancee,Carolyn, has a wealthy father with a reputation for being an extreme tightwad. Carolyn was profoundly touched when he offered to pay for most of the wedding expenses. Last night,Carolyns m other confessed to us that Carolyns father is not paying for the wedding. He is deducting the expenses from Carolyns inheritance fromh er grandmother. (The father is executor of her grandmothers estate.) He has no idea that his wife told Carolyn,and were sworn to secrecy because she will get into deep,deep troubleif he finds out she told. To make matters worse,he has the gall to make demands about the wedding as if he was paying for it himself. Carolyn is so deeply hurt by this deception that she doesnt even want her parents to attend the wedding. All of the joy has gone out of the wedding for her and therefore,for me as well.
